    Sony just released a high-res audio walkman that supports all formats 128GB... don't know if I want to splurge $750 on it though.

    Did you get it? I sent it to your Heathen Harvest email... Also, never heard of Gothica, any good album recommendations? By the way, I checked out individual albums of Northaunt, Svartsinn, and Sleep Research Facility. All amazing... And do you have any good recommendations for over the head headphones?

    Also, Arjen is collaborating with Anneke (again...). Seeing as how Anneke is a genius, and Arjen is talentless, I am not excited about this. Arjen cannot write vocal melodies at all for singers.

    Hey Sam! So sorry, I have been so busy. Do you have any idea of how I can send you the Hexperos album (if you don't have it yet)? By the way, Nightwish with their amazing awesome singer Floor Jansen just announced a world tour. There is a 200$ VIP ticket with my name on it! Tickets go on sale September 12th.

    They're all brain dead, they won't consider anything that is even vaguely esoteric. There are no aliens, the pyramids were built by primitive ancestors 4500 years ago, the NIST report on 911 is completely accurate etc etc. A recent thread on crop circles went 'These are amazing!', 'No, they're all man made' /close thread. Utter, utter morons. On the subject of pyramids, check out www.thehiddenrecords.com. The world is far more amazing than OcUK would ever have us believe! :)

    Thanks for giving me feedback about my recommendations - glad you enjoyed the Mesektet album. I agree that it's somewhat similar to Amon's El Khela, and I appreciate the reminder - I haven't listened to that in quite awhile, and will do so again. So much of Thomas Köner's work is a good summer antidote, isn't it? The album that comes to mind immediately for me for that use is Permafrost, though Daikan and Teimo are just as appropriate. As for the weather, I try not to complain much because I live in Portland, OR, and our summers are very mild compared to most of the USA. Still wish I could hide out in a cave until autumn, though...

    I'm not on Spotify; I still use last.fm and see no reason to migrate. I know we're connected on Skype, but I only log in when I have a call planned. Facebook is annoying, but it's still the best social networking option for me for now. As for your music...I've now listened to your Sahn album twice, and I'm impressed. You are talented! The third track in particular, "Yazidi," had me dancing on the first listen, and I'm very picky about what I dance to. Keep up the good work. And regarding my dark ambient recommendations....Skorneg is quite different than Havan, yes. It's a collaborative effort Frederic did with Christian Corvellec of Skinwell. I enjoy both Skorneg and Havan, but Skorneg is my favourite of the two. Funny you mentioned Sleep Research Facility - his work is well loved by many a dark ambient fan, and while I enjoy Nostromo, I'm not as big a fan of SRF as most. I like Thomas Köner's work better. Oh, and check out the new TeHÔM album, Lacrimae Mundi. Excellent!

    Still in Lonfon until the weekend. My departure has been delayed a little. Was reading Prog mag earlier and they mentioned that these folk used Oud - might be worth a listen. http://www.allmusic.com/album/the-hangmans-beautiful-daughter-mw0000677578

    Another new release I should mention to you is Skorneg, a new project from Frederic Arbour of Cyclic Law. Highly recommended! My Mixcloud mixes won't be up until winter, but I'll let you know when they are. Thanks for your interest. I definitely won't be mixing genres - mine will be entirely dark ambient. I'm sad that you're no longer writing for HH since your dark ambient reviews there were always excellent, but am glad to hear you're working on your own music; I will certainly check out your brand new Sahn material on Bandcamp. Your support of my Shrine of Skadi dance project in its early days was very much appreciated, BTW. Oh, and did you know that Skadi (the dark ambient project whose music I often dance to) has a Bandcamp site? He just released a new album today. Not to be missed!

    Same here, I don't go on OcUK at all now or any forum really. Shame, OcUK used to be good, not any more. Are you keeping well?

    Hey there Sam. I'm listening to Kave 'Dismal Radiance' and Mesektet 'Towards a Bleak Sun' a lot lately. Both are new releases. I also just discovered 'Reverse Aleph,' an older drone album by His Divine Grace; it reminds me somewhat of Troum. Great stuff! The second article in my "underrated dark ambient albums" series will be published in October, so I'll have a few more recommendations there. I'm also working on a new project: a series of dark ambient playlists for Mixcloud. Are you keeping up with dark ambient these days? Haven't seen anything new from you on HH for awhile...what's new in your world?

    Lol, sorry for the late reply. :) But I cannot seem to find the new album digitally but I contributed to the fundraising campaign so once I get it in the mail I can send it off your way digitally. It is being sold on Projekt though. BTW, what do you think of that ambient project that was just released Krist Morst? A photo book is being released and the music sounds awesome.

    Did you see the Gathering 25th Anniversary show ? Every single member of the Gathering in history including Anneke playing two shows in the Netherlands. :) Check their FB page. Also, new Hexperos is amazing. And is your name based on that Aesma Daeva song?

    You were not kidding about the latest from Northhaunt and Svartsinn, I am absolutely in love with the album. I have been playing it every night ever since I got it. Oh, and new Epica is terrible. I don't know why people are praising it. Simone sounds horrendous and the melodies are a complete mess.

    I just finished to Halgrath's new album, and I think it's her best work yet. You can only order it directly from her at the moment. And yeah, the scene seems to be very dead. Hexperos just released a new song and it's fantastic, it's called Autumnus, and a new EP is out soon as well as a new album. What do you think of new SoP ? BTW, To-Mera ended apparently, and Julie started a new "electronica metal" band, it doesn't sound so great. And Sfinx from Zet is continuing her solo project Endling, does not sound good at all. Awful actually. And Ronny from ex-Trail of Tears new side project with Sfinx does not sound too good either. Ugh, I don't understand why so many singers are going with the solo project thing thinking it's gonna be successful.

    Halgrath is releasing a new album. Woot. Got any new recommendations in the ambient/ethereal? I have not seen any ethereal, at least something good, in years.

    I see lots of recent plays of Sinke Dûs on your profile...did you recently discover his work, or are you a long-term fan? I think "Akrasia" is a criminally underrated album, and I'm always glad to see it get more well-deserved attention. It's one of my all-time favourites.

    Hey mate! I just joined one of your many groups - technical thrash metal. My question is - Are you still maintaining the group as checking it etc? If not, could you make me the leader? I know it sounds quite strange, asking you these questions directly, but I saw you created many groups and I'd really like to be leader one of my most favourite subgenres in metal - Technical thrash!
