Almost a year in the making, Connecting Trains by Disturbed Earth, Shane Morris, and Kirill Platonkin is out now on Buddhist on Fire net label. From near opposite corners of the globe, U.S., Russia, and Australia, Connecting Trains is truly music from around the world and back again. Dark ambient, experimental, and soundscape lovers will want to pick this up.
There are several firsts on this album. This is my first release with Disturbed Earth or Kirill Platonkin, though I have another collaboration with Disturbed Earth coming out later this year. This album is my first release playing some electric guitar, which was processed with N.I.’s Guitar Lab. Also featured on this album is the Marsynth Morris Box, which I used on each track along with other synths and percussions. This release is also the very first Creative commons release for Disturbed Earth.

A great review of Epoch by Sage at Heathen Harvest
“It isn’t easy to put into words just how successful these two gentlemen were at creating this world and giving it a realistic organic sound.” – Sage
