CROMWORX "Cromworx" cassette tape (all over print, lim.66) [Orkrist]
Import from Germany. 21 track cassette tape limited to only 66 copies on white shells.
"The Cromworx debut album contains previously unreleased early keyboard attempts (he really calls them attempts!!) of the Orkrist keyboard player. Out of these compositions some songs were adapted for Crom's primary band Orkrist ("Sword and Sorcery" - album "Reginae Mysterium” 2002 "The Fall of Gil-Galad" and "Grond" - album "Grond" 2003, "Where the Knights Sleep, Undying" - album "Artefacts of Life" 2020). The songs from the original Cromworx set remained untouched for 22 years and were authentically recorded only in 2022, on a keyboard with 1.44" floppy disc mechanism and no professional production in any studio. Apart from minor re-arrangements and a few added vocals the songs remain in their original form.
For us the Cromworx debut album is easily one of the best medieval Dungeon Synth releases ever - varied and captivating, with beautiful melodies and sophisticated compositions that remind the listener of bygone times as well as fantasy settings and role-playing game soundtracks - an absolute must have not only for fans of Fief, Pazuzu or Die Verbannten Kinder Evas.
