    Top shelf stuff.
    Nice to hear. A new solo album and one or two new October Equus are in the way for 2021. The solo one is a bit in the style of Tierra Quemada, with mostly same band than in Presagios (OE's bass and keys plus same basson and flute players) and the production is very advanced already, probably ready for February or March.

    Keep the beautiful music coming in these bleak times.
    Yes, I hope too, the last concert I did was 24th March in Irkutsk, precisely playing the Shaman Rock suite solo with loops. It's being long.
    By the way, here's a collaboration between October Equus and some of the Vespero's guys, I think quite interesting: http://https://octoberxart.bandcamp....en-lake-single

    And the opening track of our Seaorm "Olkhon" album, with myself, Arkady and Ivan Fedotov: http://https://soundcloud.com/angelo...orm-lusud-khan

    Steve F. will have some copies at Wayside, by the way, for friends in the USA.

    Excited to hear this! Tierra Quemada is one of my favourite albums from the last ten years. And Presagios is one of my favourites this year.

    It's great to have you on the forums, I hope you stick around.

    Live in Astrakhan is mostly music from Carta Marina and some from my solo albums, very different to the original studio versions, great sound. It was at the opening of my exhibition of paintings at that theatre.
    Seaorm - Olkhon is an corrected and augmented version of Shaman Rock with several extra tracks, new guitars plus great bass and drums by Arkady and Ivan, rhythm section of Vespero. The music is in the wave of my work with Vespero but in power trio format and some kraut-electronic atmospheres.

    I have 'Live in Astrakhan' a while now (through bandcamp) and I think its truly excellent. To these ears the tracks from Carta Marina sound much better then on the studio album. It is a crystal clear recording and the violin is much more upfront in the mix. On the studio version it got a bit lost.
    The highlight on the album for me is "never again" with Natasha Blinova. Wonderful tune. This too sounds better then the studio version. I highly recommend this album. It is also a good entry point into Angels world I think.

    Looking forward to that Seaorm album!
