New Svartsinn album announcement from Cyclic Law
« on: December 22, 2009, 10:37:36 AM »
Today received an email announcement from Cyclic Law announcing the release of the new album from Svartsinn, who appeared on the Hypnos compilation Message From a Subatomic World in 2008.  But that's not the only Hypnos connection with this release.  The second disc includes a special set of remixes of Svartsinn tracks including a remix I created for his track "But the Fire Burns No More."



SVARTSINN "Elegies For The End" 2CD  (26th Cycle)
The 4th album by Norwegian dark ambient act, Svartsinn, shows a more melodic yet rather obscure side of the artist. 2009 is the 10th year of Svartsinn's existence and it has inspired Pettersen to try a different approach and to experiment with some new ideas. This new musical journey deals with sadness and melancholy, about not knowing one's place in this vast and at times uninviting world, how it can become a daily torment to not be able to find one's reason to exist. And it's also about finding one's personal path, finding ways to endure and hopefully transcend these engulfing life challenges.

The Double CD includes a unique collaboration track with Dahlia's Tear and a 10 years anniversary bonus disc containing exclusive remixes by Triarii, Kammarheit, Letum, Life Toward Twilight, Gustaf Hildebrand, Tenebrious, New Risen Throne, MGriffin, Visions and Hovmod. All acts giving very interesting perspectives on some of Svartsinn's previously released tracks, making this second disc a very special homage to the singular world of Svartsinn.
Edition of 1000 copies in 8 panel foldout cardboard sleeve.
CD1: 4 Tracks. Running Time 34:36
CD2: 14 Tracks. Running Time 1:11

I just realized, this is a pretty short new album... 34 minutes, 4 tracks.  I guess they had to include the 2nd bonus CD so people would feel like they got a decent quantity of music.

Here's a direct link to the mp3 sample clip of my remix if anyone's interested:
