Norwegian prog metal masters GREEN CARNATION have uploaded a teaser for their upcoming DVD at YouTube.com.

 

 

The footage for the disc was recorded at the "A Night Under the Dam" concert event, which was covered by national TV stations in Norway.

The concert took place on August 3, almost 700 metres above the ocean, several kilometers into the mountains, under a 30-meter tall dam built in 1939. With 65 million cubic of water above them, the band — together with guest artists and a string quartet — performed its entire "Acoustic Verses" album and other material in front of more than 500 enthusiastic people, some of them travelling all the way from the USA, Italy, Ireland, Germany and Holland.
Commented guitarist Tchort: "[The concert] was magical. The crew of Eikerapen Roots festival (one of the organizers together with Sublife Productions) had done such amazing work preparing the area for the arrival of all the people and rigged an amazing stage in the middle of the wilderness where very few people have ever been — except when they built the dam in 1939. Bulldozers were working for days to prepare roads and turning points for the bus loads of fans, and our light engineer Bjørnar Skutlaberg had done an amazing job designing the lights and make the area so magical. Ruben, our sound engineer [outdid] him self once again by producing an incredible sound on this memorable night. Not to forget the extremely lojal and dedicated GREEN CARNATION fans who travelled from around the world to be with us.

"I am a musician, but most of all I am a fan of music, but there is no way I would ever reach above the knees of the average GREEN CARNATION fan, and especially those who came to see us [that] night. I am so happy for them right now that the show turned out great and the weather was perfect. It must have been a amazing experience for them, just as it was for us."

The DVD version of the concert will be released in early 2007 via Sublife Productions.

Chrs Judge Smith, co founder of Van der Graaf Generator and more recently the force behind the remarkable Curly's Aiships album has released a brand new CD entitled "The Vesica Masage".

This album is a new department for Judge and is an entirely instrumental work containing a unique blend of relaxing yet melodic music.

The JUDGE-SMITH.COM website has free samples from every track of the CD to listen to, and to those who are understandably wary of anything that might be classified as New Age Music, Judge has the following comment to make:

.........I can promise you there are no endless drones, and no pan-pipes, didgeridoos, tribal chanting, sounds-of-the-rain-forest, or whales. The album is the result of a long process of composition that has been as challenging and rewarding for me as anything I have ever attempted. I thought that I might be able to make a decent job of it, but I had no idea that such great tunes would fall out of the sky for me to use. There are a few melodies here that are as good as anything I've ever done….......

Iona - The Circling Hour
Latest News - Music News
Monday, 18 September 2006
The brand new album Iona 'The Circling Hour' is now in stock and available from the Iona website (www.iona.uk.com) where you can also hear mp3 extracts from all the tracks.

The band have also just added an extra UK tour date to their schedule on November 16th and this will be a special 'Circling Hour' album launch concert.

The concert will be held in the newly refurbished St James' church in the picturesque East Yorkshire village of Warter, near Pocklington and about 18 miles east of York.

Doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

The church is to become a centre for concerts and arts events and this will be the first event to take place there since the completion of the renovations. The concert will be candlelit and the venue (which dates back to the 13th century) will lend itself to an especially intimate atmosphere.

Tickets and more info will be available soon via the band's website. All those who pre-order tickets will be automatically entered into a prize draw. Winners will receive some signed Iona goodies. One not to miss!

'I have been putting together another solo project for ages which originally started off as a sort of lullaby thing but as time has passed and new ideas have come along  the project has sort of evolved into a more general contemplative/worship type album. Sort of like lullabies for grown ups which my boys like to listen to as well. Its more of a reflection of my own spiritual journey over the past few years.

Frank from Iona is producing this time so its kind of in his hands as to when it will be completed. I think realistically it will be early next year before completion.
