CALEMBOUR RECORDS presents the re-printing of THE FROZEN AUTUMN's second to
last full-length "IS ANYBODY THERE?".
Originally released in 2005, this is probably TFA's most introspective
album: an evanescent cathedral built with seemingly endless, unpredictable
synthetic layers. The question expressed in the title also refers to the
possible existence of extra-terrestrian intelligent life, still this is
just one of the interpretation keys of the album's underlying inspiration
topics. The idea of parallel dimensions leading to other possible worlds
and potentially different lives here generates visions of algid beauty,
deep melancholy and ravishing poetry.
"Is Anybody There?" reveals to each listening new precious facets,
unfolding layer by layer, and it's meant to be repeatedly savoured to fully
enjoy all of its somptuous essence. This edition comes with three bonus
tracks, i.e. rare versions of "Citywards" and the very well-known "Polar
Plateau" as well as a lyrics booklet with re-styled graphics. This is real
crystal-clear ice-cold electro-wave that will catch you and never let you

TODAY IS THE DAY! "CHIRALITY" OUT NOW IN EUROPE FOR CALEMBOUR
Here below the way it has been announced:
"After six years since their latest, excellent full-length "Is Anybody
There?", the electro cold-wave standard-bearers THE FROZEN
AUTUMN are back with the long-awaited new album
"CHIRALITY".Partially disclosed about one year ago by their
acclaimed, collectible 10" "Rallentears", "CHIRALITY" is a pure
frozen-wave (as the band loves defining its own music) style work: a
breath of freezing air, uniquely beautiful, original soundscapes
following one another, a pathway snaking in absolutely involving,
unexpected ways .
The word "CHIRALITY" describes the property of specularity in
chemistry,which entails a dramatic diversity
in substance, though: this is the metaphorical kernel around which
THE FROZEN AUTUMN, by means of ten songs, condensed the topic
of deceiving appeareances, the double's false identity, apparent
complementarities, the discovery of unsuspected incompatibilities
that, referred to human relations, also leads to an
introspective view aimed to the quest for a basis of truth, bringing
along the crowningachievement of a new, gradual self- and world-outside consciousness.
Diego Merletto's warm timbre and Froxeanne's unique voice alternate on close, electronic weaves,
entwined to - sometimes algid and crystal-clear,sometimes deeper and sumptuos - warps that
will wrap you up in whirls of solar wind, in golden, rarified fog where to spot deforming mirrors, in
electric storms loaded with sonic premonitions, or in pure dynamism and punchy rhythms that will dig
till the unison with your hearts is reached.
You won't be insensitive to the kaleidoscope-like melodies succession and you won't stay emotionless
tothese enjoably unreal atmospheres: this album will get you an immediate, healthy addiction and will
run in loop in your players for an incredibly long time!! Not to miss!!!"
"CHIRALITY" is available at www.calembourrecords.com mailorder (for EU buyers only) and worldwide
through Audioglobe (www.audioglobe.it), lots of other mailorders and shops.
