ARCANA “As Bright As A Thousand Suns” CD (49th Cycle)

Four years after the release of their last full length album “Raspail”, and following their “Emerald” EP released earlier this year, ARCANA now offers us brand new material on their 7th full lenght album. As accustomed from this legendary act we are graced with Peter Bjärgö’s solemn voice echoing through the blend of strings, guitars, piano and a variety of percussion instruments. Ann-Mari Thim’s beautiful, picturesque soprano floats through the air together with Núria Luis’ emotional violin and Cecilia Bjärgö’s soft, mellow alto blends in with Mattias Borgh’s and Sergio Gamez Martinez’ percussive rhythms. As Bright as a Thousand Suns is a sincere and sapience filled opus from a mature collective,  ten diverse songs of thoughts and emotions on one album of pure splendour.
Edition of 2000 copies in 6 panel Digipack. 10 Tracks. Running Time 44:50


DESIDERII MARGINIS “Procession” CD (48th Cycle)

“Procession” heralds the reawakening of the acclaimed swedish dark ambient project Desiderii Marginis, an album that sounds at the same time warmingly familiar and inspiringly new. While Desiderii Marginis is perhaps not as prolific as some other acts, it’s “quality over quantity” motto always makes it well worth the wait and this is certainly no exception. The eight pieces that make up this new album stand firmly on their own, and yet form an even more remarkable whole. Johan Levin envokes a grand soundscape, beneath the faded remnants of the celestial spheres where timbres have space to grow, evolve and reflect off each other, a sombre, melancholic thoughtfullness, a calm to dwell in, and long back to. The atmosphere of the album is not that of solid darkness, or an abyss opening beneath you, but rather a wintery pale, grey dusk casting long, sweeping shadows. A haze that makes you uncertain if it’s really getting lighter or darker. We’re honored to welcome Johan Levin’s long standing project to the ever expanding Cyclic Law family.
Edition of 1000 copies in 6 panel Digipack. 8 Tracks. Running Time 51:.40


SHRINE “Somnia” CD (47th Cycle)

It’s with great pleasure that we present you the new album from Bulgaria’s Shrine. Somnia is a complex audio metaphor that can be interpreted as an aural equivalent of a “low level” lucid dreamstate – a dream in which the dreamer is not fully aware he is dreaming but is still having the ability to control the dream. Based on processing of multiple sound sources ranging from audio synthesis, acoustic instruments and field recordings, the album explores several imaginary realities immersing you into a lucid-like experience through sound. Almost an hour long, it contains 8 thematically independent compositions representing an extended blend of ambient, acoustic music and nature sounds. Use it as a sound guide to lucid dreaming.
Edition of 600 copies in 6 panel Digipack. 8 Tracks. Running Time 53:30


BEYOND SENSORY EXPERIENCE “Modern Day Diabolists” CD/DVD (46th Cycle)

Beyond Sensory Experience are back with their seventh full length study – Modern Day Diabolists. BSE have reopened the dossiers and turned page to focus on life in the modern urban world. True to their ten-year pattern of evolution the dark ambience is more captivating than ever; complex soundscapes and consoling melodies combine with provocative rhythm structures and unsettling samples to generate a new profile of BSE. When business has stopped and lights are out what is left is Modern Day Diabolists.
Modern Day Diabolists will be available as a CD/DVD double Digipak in May. The DVD features compelling visual interpretations of two tracks from the album by Swedish video artists The Retardtank and Fetish 23.
Edition of 800 copies in 6 panel double Digipack. 9 tracks. Running Time 57:00
