Album ~ SHRL-002-C

Released in august 2016, "Forty Miles of Dusty Road" is the first album. This album is more of a concept album even though most of the songs can be taken out of context of the album without problems. Vintage synthesizers blend together with ethnic instruments to create an atmospheric sound texture close to the edge of a movie soundtrack. Other songs have a taste of '70s rock garageband mixed with urban blues elements. Enjoy the sound and stay tuned for future albums.

Album ~ SHRL-004-C

On 4 October 1957, the soviet space program, launched Sputnik-1 into low earth orbit. This album is a homage to that achievement.

The overall sound is meditative and atmospheric even though one can encounter rhytmic passages and drum pattern driven songs.

The album contains 9 instrumental tracks. The Gryphon analog sequencer (hand made specially for this album) was used on tracks 2-Anode Power and 3-Semyorka.

EP ~ SHRL-005-E

This EP was recorded in 2007 and was released ten years later, after the tracks were mastered at Second Harmonic. Driven by a rock solid sound, the songs have a certain nostalgia, but the power still remains untouched and strong.

The disc opens with "Strange Eyes" an acoustic ballad driven by own made wood percussion instruments. "Nuclear Fusion" breaks the silence with heavy guitar riffs followed by a mean bass guitar to complete the aftermath of a thermonuclear war. The confusion of a modern society is unveiled in "Lost in the City". The EP was released by Second Harmonic on 21 June 2017.
