There was a minor setback for the masters of the new Aethellis album Northumbria where when converted to formats where compression is employed, the tracks displayed some increased vocal sibilance. Concerned with this issue, the "offending" tracks were re-mastered and sound great in any format now. Whew!
The tunes are being submitted for copyright and when I return from a vacation later in September we'll begin releasing tracks for streaming and downloading online followed by CDs being made available.
The track listing is as follows:
1. Northumbria (Hall, 10:48)
ii) Mephisto Breeze
2. The Awakening (Hall/Van Natta, 3:27)
3. Dire Need (Hall, 3:49)
4. The Penal Colony (Van Natta/Hall, 6:05)
5. Without A Sound (Hall/Gill, 5:30)
6. Celui Qui Soit La Bosse (Hall, 2:54)
7. Exchequer Prague (Hall, 3:16)
8. The Peace Path (Hall, 10:53)
i) The Galleons Of Prosperous Lives
ii) The Peace Path
9. Sounds Good (Hall/E.C.Marks, 4:44)
Then time to hunker down and learn more new material and prepare for the CD release concert!
