J.M.A. from BIRD FROM THE ABYSS sent me a mail recently to inform me about the 2nd BIRD FROM THE ABYSS release.
Bird From The Abyss - II has been released 25 Nov 2009 by Starlight Temple Society.
This is how the label presents it:
"Finland's Bird From The Abyss takes flight with their debut album "II", a 40 minute sinister working of doom rock and folk music that will take you on a journey to explore the inner mysteries of the ancient Mediterranean underworld and then send you straight into the heart of the creeping muskeg pits and forests of Finland's mythological past. "II" utilizes a series of authentic classical instruments like the baglama, zither and flute and more modern ones to create a link between our world and one which still dwells in the nexus of time. Bird from the Abyss is the music of Pharaohs and ancient Sumerian kings!
Limited to 100 copies on gold CD, with 11"x17" poster, 8 page earth flecked paper booklet and matching 6"x9" printed envelope."
