Rust-coloured hello,

The unusual hot weather for this period of the year hasn't brought anything interesting this month, just me listening with great pleasure an album realised 12 years ago and which I can't find anything written about. Maybe the nostalgy glows the actual atmosphere, the Britons from ENCHANTMENT holding me at the reanimation with the excelent song The Touch Of A Crown but I also don't have other arguments of delight. If on one side Metal neither AGE OF SILENCE hasn't delighted me with the three new songs but neither the new double album of the ones from ORDO DRACONIS, some kind of intricate mixture of Black, Jazz, Ethno or Classical, and the Britons from THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL have completely deviated in an avant-garde and complicated Black Metal with oriental influences, on other side Folk/Ethno the debut of the Hungarian from THE MOON AND THE NIGHTSPIRIT surprises in an pleasant way and Sam Rosenthal's project teleports us in an inter-war world, with aroma of wine, piano, tap house and some flinders of sensuality!

Otherwise, I started to write some new reviews after a prolonged period of pause and, when it's possible, you will be able to read them on the site, too. Concerning the magazine Kogaionon, I succeeded in finding a character that will complete me in the dense gearing of translations, named Khrys, which, besides other things, has a well-developed apetite for poetry, and some of her poems has some Bacovia influeces... maybe some will be included here, too. Other details, at the right moment.

Until the first snow, stay dark!
