The Release of #HighStrangeness by @SheerZed 03-06-16 #NewMusic

High Strangeness

My new music release High Strangeness will be out on Friday the 3rd of June 2016. High Strangeness is a collection of five meditational and atmospheric tracks noting the return to Earth of Major Tim Peake from the International Space Station on the 18th June 2016. The album also embraces the Gaian Earth Spirit acknowledging the passing of the flooded winter into (hopefully) a warmer summer. The album also embraces the Roman Bellona Festival on the 3rd June. Bellona was an Ancient Roman war goddess. She is believed to be one of the numinous gods of the Romans (without a particular mythology and possibly of Etruscan origin), and is supposed by many to have been the Romans’ original war deity, predating the identification of Mars with Ares. The hand drawn ink cover art (see above) is by myself. The album was mastered by the magickal Loz Gill at Fat As Funk Mastering. High Strangeness will be available on numerous global digital purchasing and streaming platforms. Turnstile Über Torque is a track from High Strangeness and you can hear it here via SoundCloud.
