Kingdom of Glass

About: Kingdom of Glass

Kingdom of Glass (David Blackman and Chris White) have revisited there original sound. We had grown up listening to all electronic music, and after producing the killing jar a collection of songs that were anything but electronic in sound, we wanted to push the envelope and see what was possible with the new toys we had built up over the last few years. The keyboards may have been gathering dust for some sixteen years since we first started out, but they had not been forgotten. And here is the first track free for you to download, via Myspace, Reverb Nation and others. Yep free so please give it a listen, for some it may be a trip into the past, for some it may be a trip into something new, but for us Ever know is the first of an album that when finished will sound like the real us, yep burn is cool, and now Hurricane its going well and in a few weeks we will introduce the live band, can't wait.

About: Hobbyhorse

Hobbyhorse's music is a folk fusion of musical and mythical influences from around the world. They offer stunning originals and have a soft spot for the traditional songs of the British Isles.

Hobbyhorse's sound is an intoxicating blend of soothing and exciting. They combine the raw beauty and romantic sounds of acoustic instruments and female lead vocals with the adventurous spirit of rock.

But they are as down to Earth as it gets, believing strongly in the power of real music - made by real musicians - playing real instruments.

The Seeds of Time

About: The Seeds of Time

The Seeds of Time are a form of musical collective (think Alan Parsons Project) led by James Thompson, based in Hastings, England and with residential recording facilities in SW France.

James is the principal songwriter, guitarist and singer but each project is a full musical collaboration in terms of writing, performing and production. With their roots in post-punk melodic rock and good doses of prog, trance and ambient The Seeds of Time aim to give the word fusion a good name.

The next project, Pagan Blues, will reintroduce a blues-rock feel into this melting pot and is already causing some excitement . . .

The Seeds of Time are hard at work writing material for the forthcoming album Pagan Blues. Recording is scheduled to start later this year. There will be another subtle shift in inspiration and style, but the same intensity of spirit and performance.  We are already excited with the progress of this project and we shall keep you up to date as it develops. So watch this space . . .

About: Nordagust

The name "NORDAGUST" comes from a myth, and according to the myth "NORDAGUST" was the spirit of the north wind. The spirit was said to be extremely wise, and was supposed to have insight in all things. The spirit was also called "the grieving souls spirit”.

The idea of "NORDAGUST" was basically to use the wistful, bewitching and recklessness of Norwegian folk music and to integrate this with a form of heavy rock music. With this as a starting point, we have made music from our own impressions and experience. This has of course been done before, but we try hard to find our own expression, with weight on a soulful atmosphere and organic dynamics, above precision and virtuosity.

The soul of the soil

Some things in life may come a little closer when you take a walk in our woods. You will hopefully find energy and inspiration.

Our music is colored by the spirit of the past, when our forefathers lived in and of nature. They believed everything in nature had a soul, and the better you knew the rituals to reach them - the wiser you were.

Our forefathers are all dead and gone, but their homes have been transformed into the forest again. Their struggle for survival through thousand of years has turned into:

"The soul of the soil"

 The woods are ours-though we don't own them...

Nordagust are:

Daniel "Solur" Solheim - Vocal, Guitar, Keyboard, Samples, Kantele, Dulcimer, Mandolin, Sallowflute, Mouthharp, Conch, Axe and Hammer

Ketil Armand "Bergur" Berg - Drums, Percussion, Kantele, Saw, Accordion, Hammer, Bells, Voices, Grindstone, Kettles and Barrels

Knud Jarle "Strandur" Strand  - Bass and business

Jostein Aksel Skjønberg - Keyboard, Voice, Flute
