Aural Films presents "Fog Music." A series of recordings inspired by the weather condition known as fog. Light and dark, wet and dry, this invasive event is a great source of inspiration for sound artists from around the world. This project seeks to publish 24 hours of these recordings as an on-going series for all to hear and enjoy. Download Fog Music 22 by Dan Pound that is now available from Aural Films at
Mine arrived yesterday - I saw it briefly (long enough to check it was not damaged etc) before Glenys whisked it away to be wrapped until Christmas.....

Some CRUSHING FUNERAL DOOM - Solemn They Await - Sanctuary in the Depths. Some claustrophobic heavy as hell doom! I am glad I checked them out on Bandcamp (I think that's where I picked it up). Fans of brutal funeral doom with gutteral vocals will be well pleased! Orchestral, guitar driven stuff. Looking forward to their next release.

And also check out HellLight (on Hypnotic Dirge Records) for some fabulous funeral doom from Brazil with great clean singing  and sick vocals (atmospheric/orchestral as well - well done!).

And of course the new Bloodbath with Nick holmes (Paradise Lost) on vocals for some sick old school swedish death metal! And also look into Vallenfyre (Splinters track crushes but video is cheesy IMHO) from Greg Macintosh (guitarist for Paradise Lost) which is wicked old school death metal. I hear Edge of Sanity (guitar tone and style) all over this and their first release. Good stuff if looking for something heavy with that tinge/style to it.

Mike and Robert,

I've been listening to Nest lately and I think what you're hearing on Tracks 3-5 are cicadas or a relative very close to them.


Ah, thanks. Mystery solved (for me at least!... Maybe it should have been obvious. But us Brits don't get to enjoy so many interesting insect sounds.)

By the way, what do people make of this new Robert Rich release in a more general sense!? It's a sequel to Somnium after all! Kind of significant... :-)

Bert, next time you chat with Thom tell him I said hi, I haven't heard from him in years. Good to hear Thom is still around and working on stuff.

Totally agree on the Lanois album.  Some interesting cuts but generally I'm not enthused with it.  My favorite Lanois release is the triple CD "Omni Series," very nice instrumentals in that collection.

I'm completely underwhelmed by the new Daniel Lanois CD.  It's like his other instrumental album Belladonna but more experimental and well, just plain weird in spots.  He can do much better than this.
received this from Thom Brennan yesterday:

"unfortunately nothing new completed yet.
I haven't been very focused on it recently but I'm still working on it slowly"

Quiet Calling IV (First Edition incl Bonus CD)

A mindbending continuation of this series. Deeper than ever before, the album features slow hypnotic movements with harmonic, morphing structures with a great sensation of space.
