Norwegian act Tritonus will finally release first album ”Prison of Light” today, after 13 years in the making. The band comments:
"The recordings started in the year 2000, and was finalized in 2006. But, due to different circumstances, a proper release has never been done, until now! And it is sure about time. Instead of updating it sonically for a 2013-sound, we chose to leave it 'as-is,' capturing the music, and the band, from the first half of the 00’s.
"The album sounds alive, and organic. It was recorded in the early years of digital recordings, and the sound is more or less analog. There has not been any extensive editing, or processing either. In that regard, it will stand out, from a lot of the contemporary productions and albums."
The track listing is as follows:
1. Prison of Light
5. Castle of Life
6. Ten Thousand Years
7. The Quantum and The Lotus
8. To Travel Without Motion More...
WINDS have announced the names of several musicians that will make guest appearances on their upcoming album. Those appearing are:
Agnete M. Kirkevaag (Madder Mortem, Frantic Bleep)
Lars A. Nedland (Borknagar, Solefald)
Øystein Moe (Ulver, Tritonus)
Andy Winter, piano player and main songwriter, comments: “These guys were selected by the four of us based on our deep admiration for their talents, and we are both honored and grateful that they chose (and found in time in their busy schedules) to participate in enhancing our new record with their presence.” WINDS is currently working on completing the remaining recording sessions for their fourth record, the follow-up to the well-received 2004 offering The Imaginary Direction Of Time. The upcoming album will be mixed and completed during late summer or early fall of 2006. The album will be released on THE END RECORDS sometime before the end of the year.
Age of Silence/Winds keyboardist Andy Winter has commented on his band's plans:
"Greetings everyone! As we are getting closer to the half way mark of the year, I guess this is as good a time as any to write an update about what's been going on lately, and more importantly what's to come. On May 3rd I released a mini CD containing a solo performance with classical piano music. This release is my first solo release and it is called Shades of Light Through Black and White. It is available exclusively through The End Records, and the cover art is graced with some unique black and white photographs. The disc is a 1000 copy limited edition release.
As reported some time ago Winds has already completed the basic material for the fourth album, and the drums were recorded last year. At this time we are making the preparations to continue the recordings, meaning that Carl August Tidemann will find himself in and out of the studio for several months starting after his summer vacation. I have also completed the lyrical concept, and earlier this week I talked to the guys about the musical direction of the next record. There is still a lot to be determined about the sound and the details, and we are still in the midst of discussing all of this, but already the entire band agrees that what we are on the right track for something new, and that what we are about to embark on will pretty much blow everything we have done so far out of the water. Maybe that is an overused cliche that every band nowadays uses when they put out a new record, but I believe we have the merits to back up our claim, and in this case there is no doubt that this will be the most different record we have ever done. I can also say that this record won't see the light! of day until some time in 2006, so that we will have spent over 2 years making it from the recordings started until they finish should be an indication of how much effort we are putting into it. I know I previously stated that we would not take two years to make the next album, but what can I say, I will have to admit I was wrong and correct myself in this matter. I may also have to correct my previous statement about not involving any guests on the new record, but that part still remains to be seen, and I guess only time will tell. More...
WINDS, the Norwegian Avantgarde metal band featuring Carl August Tideman (ARCTURUS, TRITONUS), Jan Axel Blomberg (MAYHEM, ARCTURUS), Lars Eric Si and Andy Winter, have completed work on their new album, "The Imaginary Direction of Time", due in late April through The End Records. This is the follow- up of the 2002 "Reflections Of The I".
Recorded at Toproom and Fagerborg studios in Norway and mixed at The Factory in Vancouver, "The Imaginary Direction of Time" is being described by the band as "the most complete and diverse album they have ever worked on," while Carl also adds that it features the most challenging guitar work that he has ever put on a record so far. Artwork for this highly anticipated release is provided by Travis Smith.
