Hey, thanks for your words !

The release date is not fixed yet - but expect it in +/- 1 months

Some additional infos:

"El Hadra is founded by Tomas Weiss and it also involves several guest musicians. The first El Hadra release "Ornaments" is made in collab with Mathias Grassow ! The music is based on hypnotic as well as rhythmic elements, and it is intended for all deep states of trance and meditation."

Greetings
Tomas

You can't embed a flash player here - so it makes sense to send people over to the happy world of rM for the music previews.

Totally cool to not join rM and contact Tomas here - or if you're on rM you can contact me there.

I'm really excited Tomas is making this available special for Hypnos and Relaxed Machinery - very cool!

hello Tomas,
Ornaments sounds very good/promising to my ears, though the prices a bit less! is €17 a reduced price?? and €19 for overseas customers, that means $27.44 with the rate of the very now for most fellows here?? is that not a bit overpriced for a single CD today, even when it comes in a digipack like many others..
i still buy a lot of CDs these days even we're in the middle of a nasty download culture.. but honestly these prices really puts me off, even as a EU-customer. sorry for any offending which may occur.

Hi Jim,

there is no offending at all for me - you just expressed your opinion which is perfectly fine  :)

As you know, the euro-dollar exchange rate is something which is not in our control and even i don´t like it too i have to except it. A price of a product in general can be always a "discussion issue", depending on the perspective and also from the point of what people are used to. But a price is not only a value for packaging or the CD itself, but also - speaking for me/us - how worth i see the complete work. I strongly belive that anybody has to judge this "value/worth issue" for any available work on its own and then make a decision if its worth or not.

Greetings,
Tomas

Hello Hjalmer,

with Anthony i made a special deal and i had to compromise since we both run the Construct label. But for all primary el culto labels we will keep physical releases only. Sorry !

Also received the bundle, Tomas - Ornament I'm enjoying a bunch - Aestrata as well!

I still think you should do downloads, but hey - you and I disagree on that one!  ;-)
