Rumour and obsession have kept the legend alive. But this May, 34 years later, the myth will be reborn.'Immram: The Voyage of the Corvus Corrone' The 70’s synth prog classic returns; remastered, repackaged and re-imagined. Escape Artists Recordings are proud to announce the re-release of this most mysterious of albums.
" the music exists in a strange realm somewhere between Tangerine Dream and the work of Brian Eno and Robert Fripp, with a sprinkling of esoteric fairy dust in the narrative.... dreamy, richly textured astral-synth music with poetic lyrics which was decades ahead of its time and could, may still, change you.
If no one had recorded Corvus Corrone it would have been necessary to invent it as Escape has done." - 5/5 Graham Reid www.elsewhere.co.nz
“all parties can be proud of an effort that asks philosophical questions about the nature of listening, objectification of packaging and mythology, and how to move forward without becoming simply magpies nervously picking over the carcass of dead downloads.” - Gary Steel www.witchdoctor.co.nz
"Sounds arrive from all directions at once, enveloping you like a warm breeze. Ancient synthesisers strut around in their pomp while primitive drum machines click and clatter. There are gongs, wind chimes, electronic harps. Gently plucked electric guitars float above this fulsome sonic panorama, glistening like diamonds." - Grant Smithies 'Sunday Star Times'
"intoxicating and otherworldly" - Dave Ling www.classicrockmagazine.com/prog
