cainerose Mike creates gorgeous aural landscapes that are rooted in darkness and rise up to light- inspiring self reflection as well as contentment in the spaces between the beats of the heart.

sinneth soul I think this album is the most interesting production of Melankolia. Very atmospheric ambient music, with interesting piano sections.
Mastering speaking vocal needs a bit better noise cancelling and 'S' and 'T' when reverb is overwhelming and makes this a bit irritating. I know this problem from my own productions. It is hard to make everything sounding perfect when mastering on your own. Favorite track: The Meaning of My Existence.

Having been some time since a release of original material from Melankolia, I took the combined efforts and struggles from the last year and a half or so, picked the best ones worth sharing, and now present this gathering of 8 tracks in an extended EP.

This album, titled "Succour Midst Sorrow", is a duality of sorts. The first half deals mostly with the depression and uncertainty about my musical future after the release of "III". The thought of ending the project altogether was considered, and the first 5 tracks certainly deal heavily on the side of sorrow, regret, and bleak depression.

The second half, on the other hand, is almost positive, almost eclipsing the stark contrast of emotions placed forward on the first offering of tracks. Dreamlike, ethereal, and soaked in resolve, the final 3 tracks speak toward the future of the project itself.

So, I offer this collection to you for free. The option is there to donate any amount as you see fit. All proceeds will go directly to fund new releases from my label, Nine Gates Records. So you see, while the music may be mine, the sharing of these emotions is available to all.

Thank you for the support.
