ad dios

October 13, 2008 at 12:00 pm

ad diosI have listened to ad dios for more than ten years now, ever since I received the fantastic album “Ancient Landscapes”. I have used their music as some kind of resort now and then, away from a more stressful real landscape and into a musical bubble of peace and harmony.

ad dios is inspired by ancient cultures, preferably the celtic one, to create their atmospheric, melodic music. And sure, I can sense this inspiration, but a stronger feeling for me is the timelessness of it all that connects my inner peace with things that have always been.

ad dios is a duo from Lund with five albums in their discography. Four of them released by Theta Music. Their latest album is called “The Endless Knot” and you can listen to two tracks from the album below. Right now they are producing their upcoming album, with the work title “A Journey Through Middle Earth”, a musical journey inspired by “The Lord of the Rings”.

But behold, you Tolkien-fan, the ring is in safe hands. I can proudly present a track here from the new album, “Middle Earth”, so that you can get a taste for what the new album will sound like.

Lean back, relax, and enjoy:

In the Labyrinth

September 26, 2008 at 8:00 am

In the Labyrinth, Peter LindahlIn the Labyrinth is the multi-instrumentalist Peter Lindahl, who paints new musical landscapes, together with visiting friends.

The first thing that struck me when I listened, was a fantasy feeling, where some tracks could fit into many movies of this genre. And I got extra inspiration from the beautiful album paintings (painted by Peter Lindahl).

The music is also made with a lot of musical fantasy, and the influences are many. Sometimes I sense the early Pink Floyd, and many times Mike Oldfield. Otherwise, the most remarkable influence is the oriental flavour. Oriental scales are woven very skilfully and nice together with everything else and the sitar gives a beautiful colour to the music.

The Artist Dance of the Witches

“Dryad” (Record Heaven) ) is the latest and the third album from In the Labyrinth. You can listen to three songs from the album here. Welcome into the labyrinth!

Lost In the Woods (plus Intro)

Johan Paulson, or John-John as he calls himself, is a fantastic person in many ways. Musically he is found, among other places, as a former member of the Swedish grunge band Icke Lika Med, he has played with Håkan Hellström and performed at “Allsång på Skansen” (an extremely popular music show on Swedish TV) with his father, Mats Paulson!
It is now time for his own solo project under his own name and his own record company De las mercedes recordings with experimental, electronica/ambient songs.

To listen to the songs is like talking to or meeting Johan, it calms you down, and provides a comfortable feeling of love and warmth.

Now, here’s your chance to meet Johan, through his music. Here are three downloadable songs, and you can find much more on his web sites.
