ARTISTS: LOST SIGNALS FROM UNKNOWN HORIZONS
CDR: Beast of Prey BOP12 / Silver Charisma SCH01 
Ltd x 222
Arriving in oversized packaging with a stamp (or two) and print on the front, it is held together with a wax seal. Inside there is a photographic print and a card with explanatory text. Even in the disc itself is printed black! This really is a beautiful thing to behold...but what about the music?
us off are the tremendous Desiderii
Marginis. They've been away for a while and this is a most welcome
for more evidence! Opening "Lost Signals..." is the dark, rhythmic
and repetitive 'Animation'; a piece not dissimilar to Vromb
and very unlike the DM
I've heard before - but I'm a fan of rhythmic noise and this certainly
floats my boat. 'Muffled' hints a return to those early days
of DM on CMI;
chants and strings and drones; quite neoclassical, yet dark and gentle.
The same can be said of 'Forlorn' and I would highly recommend
these two tracks to Arcana
let the side down. 'Drifting Through Corridor Of The Stars' is
wishy-washy with no direction and muffled samples. Creaks and voices lie
under and try to emerge every now and again....it's rather boring I'm
afraid. 'Astrofobia (From Fhetys to Rhea)'
is more of the same. 'Pulsar' is, unsurprisingly, filled with
'space/synth' samples that would be a Trekkie's wet dream....but not mine.
To be fair, there are some rather good, melancholic, neoclassical moments
at the beginning of this song but the samples and a terrible synthpop
style-affair for the rest of the song are really unnecessary and spoil
a potentially great song...and a great release. I can really live without
