CD release: Darkened Soul - Bathys
« on: May 02, 2008, 10:03:43 AM »
We're readying this disc for release soon, and just wanted to float a little "coming soon" teaser announcement.
We'll have much more complete information on this one soon, including MP3 clips.


 

(I removed the "teaser" announcement now that the more complete announcement of the release is below).
_Mike

New CD release: Darkened Soul - Bathys

Artist: Darkened Soul
Title: Bathys
Label: Hypnos Secret Sounds (Ltd CDR)




2008. The word "bathys" is Greek, and means "deep," and the rest of the titles here continue the Greek language
theme. It's the root of the word "bathyscaph" which is a submersible vessel for deep sea exploration. The word
"deep" is relevant as this album collects deep, dark ambient sounds.

Darkened Soul is a psydonym under which Mike Soucy records dark ambient soundscapes. His previous releases
have been mostly self-released, though Hypnos followers may have seen his release Seasons of Dark and Light
on the Italian label, Umbra, operated by recording artist Oophoi.

Track listing (with MP3 sample clips):
1 Eis Arthro Michani - http://www.hypnos.com/audio/hss-ds-b-01.mp3
2 Ateleiotos Agkareia - http://www.hypnos.com/audio/hss-ds-b-02.mp3

Maybe he meant peat --->

"Peat surrounds it all..." might perhaps have been the writer's attempt to describe an earthy organic denseness ;)

More about peat! ---> http://smtc.uwyo.edu/coal/swamp/peat.asp

When I went to Ireland, I saw lots of peat all over the place, and none of it looked like that picture!
