Of Solitude and Solemn stream
2013-05-23 by Hernan M. Campbell STAFF | 28 Comments

Of Solitude and Solemn, the solo project of talented multi-instrumentalist Joe Hawker (a.k.a. DarkNoctus), has
released a new track called "Illuminance", and it's currently available from streaming at soundcloud. The song's
musical style is a continuation of that in his eponymous EP, Of Solitude and Solemn, which offered an intoxicating
blend of post-metal and doom. Joe Hawker has commented that "Illuminance" is a "one-off experiment" at this
point, unmixed and unmastered, and will not appear in the debut album.

thanks for posting this for me!

some clarification:

the reason i posted this unmixed/mastered is because it's meant for a split and i want to mix/master it to at least somewhat match the other material on the split but i also wanted to share the song so i made it mostly presentable.

the upcoming album, due later this year some time, will be far doomier than this and will include the tracks on the demo (re-recorded) but not this track. it's too bright and doesn't fit the album very well, but i really like it so... here it is! [:

(also no downloads right now, not until the split is out and i can mix/master it)

I hate how the text gets screwed up during edits. Oh well, song rules though, so it's indeed worth checking out.

Thanks, and that was great. Loved the clean, almost Post-Rock sound the guitar has.

-- Noctus please keep some of the atmospheric touch. You do a good job with it.

The only other one I can think of is :Of the Wand and the Moon:, but that's not really the same because there's a couple of "the's" thrown in lol

sorry keyblade, it just doesn't fit with the other material i've written and it's already like an hour long and i already like the pacing. i do have more songs like this written though, they'll see releases on EP's and splits.

maybe my second album will be more akin to this? it's difficult to say

but thanks, guys! [:
