I’m sure you’ve never heard of my old band Alyosha, but I recently had our 2006 record {ghosts} remastered. Dave Downham at Gradwell House did it and it sounds pretty great. The remaster is available for free as a digital download in both high quality 320kbps MP3 and also lossless FLAC format (available in 2 separate zip folders), both with high resolution artwork. What does the album sound like? Well I’m never very good at describing my own bands so maybe this review excerpt from Origivation Magazine will help:

“This fast-paced, high-energy indie rock disc is totally defined by the challenging guitar melodies. Everything else is gravy. Luscious, sweet, heavy, gravy that is absolutely complimentary to the rich and thought-provoking guitar work. The songs are all broken into succinct movements – even the tracks that are mostly ambient noise are tiny journeys. As beautiful as it is exploratory, and exciting as it is experimental, {ghosts} demands and commands complete attention from the first second of track 1 to 4 hours after you’ve finished track 13.”

It’s been quite a long while in the making, but Evan Wall, better known as †Church†, finally brings us his debut album I Did A Horrible Thing To Meet You. The album consists of ten tracks that perfectly blend dark folk, alternative rock, and metal inspirations into a ball of emotional chaos. Recorded over a very, very long period at Red Planet, and mastered by Colin Marston at Menegroth, I Did A Horrible Thing… is one of 2010′s albums you wont want to miss. Check out one of the record’s more rocking songs below, along with photo’s of the packaging. The CD is available for purchase now at live performances or through the †Church† Myspace page.
