Newcastle Upon Tyne "UK". [ 2010 till Present ]

[ Our Blistered Horizon ] is the post-rock solo project of "Michael Holden". Mainly influence by the likes [ Mogwai ] ~ [ Russian Circles ] and [ Explosions in the Sky ] "Artifice" has been a work in progress since early 2010 and digitally released on Bandcamp on the 30th of August 2011.

At the moment "Artifice" is only available in its digital format, however once the title become available in a psysical form a free CD will be shipped to whoever purchased the digital format. A small shipping might come into effect but I' ll sure work out something when the time comes.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
