Earlier this year Frozen Ocean ran an extremely successful campaign on Groupees.com, where various bundles of digital material, spanning the entire back catalogue of the band, were sold. As special incentives, four exclusive, never before heard tracks, were made available as the pledges of support increased. These four songs will never be made available again in digital format – however Vaarwel, the mastermind behind Frozen Ocean, has agreed to a very, very limited physical release of the tracks. Collected together under the title "A Faded Missive Therefrom," they are now to be released on CD by Operator Produkzion.
The CD will come in a printed four panel sleeve, specially designed by Cold Graves and A-Drone and the artwork is the perfect representation of the music within. These songs are another doorway into the world of Frozen Ocean, a world of wonders that can lift you away from the ordinary and everyday. A Faded Missive Therefrom is a collection of some of the most evocative and enthralling ambient music that Vaarwel has ever created, but due to the extremely limited nature of this release fans will need to move fast if they are not going to miss out.
The track list for the release is:
4. Lichten Op De Muur More...
