Howly Night has Fallen

Howly Night, a free digital X-mas compilation by AFmusic and Zorch Factory Records, is out today.

Howly Night X-mas compilation“23 more or less known bands with mainly previously uneleased tracks are on ‘Howly Night’. With the first track ‘Dead End’ from Dorcel the listener get trapped into a wonderful melancholic world, which is mainly the undertone on all tracks of this compilation.

Besides already well known acts like The Search, Curious or Camp Z especially the new names are setting the highlights on this compilation. An example for this are ‘Ghost In The Snow’ from (((S))) and ‘Game’ from Notes From The Underground. Everybody who likes the styles of music pointed in the beginning should see ‘Howly Night’ as a commendation. Music for cold winter days that warms heart and soul.”

The compilation is available for free and legal download.

I have been recently emailed that Spinefish has finally appeared in the catalogue of AWAL, a well-known British iTunes aggregator. Apart from our officially released albums you will find there our works that have never (or at least partially) been brought to a wide audience before (including Clandestine (LP 2003) and Daydread Diary (single 2005)). So you are welcome:
