The British post-rock favourites return, better late than never. Yndi Halda have never been in a hurry. Born in Kent but now based in Brighton, their first and till now last release saw songs stretch into 20-minute symphonic slow-blooms with shades of Tortoise, Mono and the Erased Tapes stable, in a scene and on a label then full of frenzied math bands. That mini-album’s title also riffed on a vast, endless span of time: Enjoy Eternal Bliss read its sleeve, their band name translated from Old Norse. Neither the group nor their cult fan base, however, saw its follow-up taking a whole decade to surface.
Produced by the much sought after Jaime Gómez Arellano (Paradise Lost, Ghost) and featuring the stellar performances of Attila Csihar (Mayhem, Sunn O)))) and Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver), this album flirts elegantly with alternative rock, electronics and extreme metal to provide you with a full-bodied and unforgettable experience. A spiked cocktail of city spleen, conspiranoia and personal trauma; blue like the stagnant water in the pool of a marooned holiday resort and heavy like the silence after the next radiant apocalypse…
Enigma brings the first album in eight years, and its Japanese edition exclusively includes two Japan only bonus tracks "Sadness" and "Return to Innocence." Also features Japanese original cover artwork & sleeve case packaging. The musical project, known globally as ENIGMA, has proved one of the most successful of the last quarter-century. It has delivered more than 70 million sales across seven albums, 60 Number One albums around the world, and received over 100 Platinum awards. Now, in 2016, Cretu reconnects with that very first multi-platinum album to transfer its bold, pioneering sound-world to here and now. The Fall Of A Rebel Angel is the musical parable of a sensitive artist's view on the human condition. The album tells the story of a protagonist setting off on a symbolic journey of development and change to find a new, fulfilling life.
Evoking the stillpoint of now, this 2016 long-form piece was born in the spirit of Invisible, Bloodmoon Rising and other soul tone zones of pure immersion, deep atmospherics and textural healing. After a long run of concerts and the wide range of dynamic releases over the past few years, the return to home gave birth to this place to be. Released digital-only on Bandcamp on the day it was completed (May 27 2016), it immediately ranked on the front page best-seller list.
