I think I'll check mine too, since I have a few Umbra and Penumbra discs, which I haven't listened to for some time...

I think Raison d'Etre - Metamorphyses is fantastic.
Also recommend Troum & Yen Pox - Mnemonic Induction for a very dark gloomy album.
From one of the artists from the duo Yen Pox: Blood Box - The Iron Dream
This may be the best album I've ever heard in this genre. And I know my Lustmord, Raison d'Etre, Herbst9, Inade etc...
Actually it goes beyond genre boundaries. Not your typical dark ambient.
A mindbending album. With so much variation and shifts in sound, mood, frequency... your ears will almost light up when listening to this... one moment you're in the deepest abyss, the next in a state of heavenly bliss... it's confusing, exciting and fascinating. With some beautiful melodic touches as well.
Listen in bed with headphones. Highly recommended!!
People are naming lots of ways to remove sticker goo from hard plastic, which is useful of course, but this topic was about stickers on paper. Stickers on paper just plain suck because you can't use a lot of solvents, oils, lighter fluid, nail polish remover, liquified uranium, or other goop.
I hate hate HATE buying a new CD, DVD or book with a sticker affixed directly to the product itself. Outside of shrinkwrap or overwrap is fine.
Got mine on Saturday. The Parnham collaboration is a real winner and the Immersion discs are a nice change from the more static earlier volumes in the series. I bought this box with the Grace Cathedral concert disc, and that's the one I've been playing most. What an awesome concert that must have been.
Heard this on radio this morning
I was a little surprised reading this that it basically says that a lot of people now just listen to random tracks and not full albums anymore. It is very rare that after putting on an album that I don't listen to all of it. For some reason I thought that was what most people did
I am living in Central Europe (Slovakia), mine Box Set arrived 10 days ago, that's not far from the place where you live. Actually, how big was your order? I am just asking, because bigger orders (over 500 grams) can be now shipped from/to US only by cargo flights and not by commercial flights like before. These safety restrictions by US government are valid since the beginning of December, don't know for how long... But don't worry, even smaller mailings have many delays, sometime it takes ages... I just received yesterday little parcel (under 500 grams) shipped from Raleigh, North Carolina with shipping date December 21st, so exactly one month on the way. This was shipped by USPS, just the same way Steve uses for his orders. As far I remember the first Box Sets were shipped by Steve around January 5th... Anyway, I hope you will enjoy your Box Set very soon...
Thomas Köner - everything?
Oöphoi - Athlit
Rapoon - The Fires of the Borderlands
Robert Rich - Illumination ; Below Zero
Steve Roach - The Magnificent Void ; Darkest Before Dawn (Darkest Before Dawn is almost Köner-esque to my ears but with an 'angelic' touch to it)
Robert Henke - Layering Buddha
Mathias Grassow & Klaus Wiese - Mercurius CD
Mathias Grassow - Lanzarote-Spirits CD
I got my copy from Discogs too. In fact all my Grassow CDs comes from Discogs, but not all of them are second hand. I've purchased Grassow CDs from Silentes on Discogs who uses his account as an official retailer.
