Tribute To Jon Lord

By now i think you all know the great loss we all have med. The rock and musical community overall have lost a brilliant organ player, a great musician and a good man. I am sure we all will mourn the loss for some time on. Jon Lord deserves a tribute from all of us. Heaven must have one hell of a band now...
Rest In Peace Jon!

8. Colonies
9. Noli Timere
10. Friends Of Pain

Third and latest album The Foreshadowing. On Second World The Forshadowing shows a bit doomier side then they did on Oionos. The doom influences are more clear and the album is overall gloomy and somewhat heavy in some parts. This could be their best one so far with compatition from their good debut "Days Of Nothing". Solid, gloomy and dark album that suits great for a dark rainy evening.
