Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a nice break over the Christmas holiday!

The new album is nearing completion and we're pleased to announce top mix engineer Joe Gibb has joined the team and is working on the final mixes. Joe has previously worked with Karnataka, mixing the band's award winning album Delicate Flame Of Desire - he's also worked with many other top bands including Massive Attack, Funeral For A Friend, Leftfield, Catatonia, Deep Forest and many more.


The band are very pleased to announce the release of their new studio album Secrets Of Angels in March 2015.

Recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios and Quadra Studios in London the new album explores themes from despair, anguish and the futility of war to reaching out across cultural divides and culminates in the 21 minute opus and title track, Secrets of Angels. The album features guest musicians Troy Donockley from Nightwish (Uilleann pipes and low whistles), Irish harpist Seána Davey, and from the Royal Philharmonic orchestra - Rachel van der Tang (cello) and Clive Howard (viola).
