Hi Wanterkeelt,

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... :)

You're right, at the moment, the post speed is a real disaster. I ordered 5 Windy and Carl CDs (if you love guitar drone ambient you have to check them out) around 18th December, 3 of them are still on their way, although sent around 21st...

[Sorry the rest belongs into another thread; removed]

I'm still waiting for mine to arrive... Have any of you from France, Belgium, Germany or Luxembourg received it yet ?

*bump* ;-)


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

Oöphoi - Athlit contains in my eyes one of the "brightest" ambient pieces I've ever heard : Lord of the Starfields. I've never heard such a "positive", life affirming song in my life. Simply fantastic.

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.

Yes you're right, not all CDs on Discogs are second hand. But I think those that are out of print are usually second-hand. Anyway mine was absolutely mint, so it doesn't matter...


To go back to the subject. Received today :

Maëror Tri - Hypnotikum I
Maëror Tri - Hypnotikum II
Maëror Tri - Multiple Personality Disorder

Mathias Grassow - The Lanzarote Concert 2CD


Where did you get that one ? I bought mine second-hand on Discogs... Maybe the place where you found it has more Grassow stuff.
I also recommend you Lanzarote Spirits

« on: January 16, 2011, 02:46:28 AM »
Well for me the CD isn't dead, I guess it will survive another 20-30 years at least. It may be dead in the mainstream "music" market, where the music often isn't even worth the few cent of the polycarbonate... But the music enthusiasts, like myself, the collectors (just as for vinyl) will always be willing to pay for a physical media, so in my opinion there will always be enough demand to release CDs, even if limited to 1000 copies or whatever. So even if the Cd might become a "niche" market, it will survive, and that's all that matters to me.

Personally I've been collecting metal, ambient and Berlin School metal CDs for about 12 years, and downloads have never been an option for me, except for free stuff like excellent netlabels like Earth Mantra etc. If I remember well so far I've bought 6 FLAC downloads from MusicZeit: albums by Redshift, Radio Massacre International and Keller&Schönwälder that are out of print. So there was no choice. Otherwise, the CD is always the medium I look for.

Each CD that arrives is converted to high quality OGG or MP3 to listen to the music on my portable Player on my running tours or during my walks with my dog. So like many of you I have that huge file library on my disc, but the physical backup is the most important.

Order placed some days ago. Looking forward to this release. Databloem's CDRs are always done very professionaly, whereas those Umbra and Penumbra CDRs imo didn't look that good... especially the artwork

Thanks to the first two posters (drone on and Joe R) for including not only the record's name but also giving some comments. It made me discover a lot of new stuff, especially the 12k label, Home Normal and Mystery Sea *thumbs up*

David Parsons - Earthlight
Vir Unis - Aeonian Glow
False Mirror - Derelict World

Should arrive soon (I hope) :
Steve Roach - The new 3CD box set

And don't forget the new collaboration with Alio Die "Praha Meditations". I love that one, it even surpasses their previous collaboration IMO, even though it's less ..... "epic"

93
I've just seen that the credit card was charged end of last week, so I should have it in a week if the post hurries up. Time until then to read some first impressions ;)

Opeth: Live at Royal Albert Hall (black metal of the highest calibre)

Nice to see people here like Opeth. Although I enjoy their earlier stuff (Orchid and Morningrise) much more than their later releases

That's really great. Finally I can get all those sold out CDs. Thanks Databloem.

Mike, thanks for the info. It came the right moment, since I plan on ordering THERMAL TRANSFER. But do you have any idea how long these reductions will stay active ?

The loss of the Mirage label was a real shame. Some great stuff on that label for a while.

That's true, especially the Jeff Pearce / Vidna collaboration and Robert Scott Thompson's Silent Shore.

Various (Bacchus, Vir Unis, Vidna..., Roach, O'Hearn) - The Ambient Expanse

Just WOW

There's an old one!  Have that in my collection as well.

That's true, quite old, but I was lucky to find it used but in mint condition.

10000000000 thumbs up for the use of Digipaks  ;D


All will be in digipak format, at least for the remainder of the year.  We'll see how our customers receive those CDs, and get the release backlog cleared out.  I don't have a wish to reassess CD packaging options any longer, so unless there is a great wave of dislike for the new Hypnos digipaks, or unless nobody buys them at all, we'll keep releasing music that way for the near future.
