Elegant Simplicity's "Aquatorium" out now!
We have just taken delivery this morning of the new rarities album,
"Aquatorium". It looks and sounds superb. The CD has extensive liner notes for
each track. Why a song wasn't used on an album, history of the song, who is
playing on it etc. All sorts of stuff! The CD features 12 tracks, including
the legendary 19 minute improvisation Solar Mass Music, never before released,
and is a whopping 78 minutes long. The CD also includes a new recording of the
bands well-received contribution to the Musea Records/Colossus Magazine Kalevala
project. If this archive release breaks even, then the band will be looking at
re-releasing the first seven albums! As you know, this album is in limited
numbers and will not be commercially available - it can only be bought from us.
It features a full colour booklet and, as a special mailing list bonus,
everyone ordering a copy will receive by return email an Acrobat PDF file
containing an extra 4 page lyric sheet. It is about 274kb in size. Once
printed, it is designed to fit inside the existing booklet. To buy it, simply
go to our website and head straight for the CD shop! Like all our other albums,
it costs just F9.00 and that includes first class post and packing to anywhere
in the world. If we break even and can at least cover costs with this archive
release (who knows what may follow:).
Elegant Simplicity's"Anhedonia" - coming soon!
The band's forthcoming new studio album "Anhedonia" just uploaded! Listen to it!
You will find about 25 minutes worth of music from there! Be sure to check it
out, though not all at once, as it might cause a few problems with a web
server! The band's new studio album, "Anhedonia", will be released in
March/April 2004 and features 7 very dark, melodious tracks of classic
progressive music. Highlight of the album is the awesome 19 minutes of Lost.
The album will be available as a limited edition picture disc with a free
button badge to all purchasers from the bands website! Naturally, as this is
a full commercial release, promo copies will be available. Please look out for
the next announcement, due in March/April.
Elegant Simplicity's two best selling and
best-known albums "Palindrome" (2001) and "Architect of Light"
(2002) have both sold out. They are not likely to be re-printed any time soon.
Bjorn Lynne: Those of you familiar with Bjorn's
work will know what kind of music he produces (epic, fantasy-based progressive
instrumental). Anyway, we (Elegant Simplicity's Proximity Records), have obtained a few copies of
his two best-known CDs: "The Gods Awaken" and "Wolves of the Gods". These are now in the
CD shop and are priced at F8.00 each. Get them while you can, as there are less
than 10 copies of each album.
