Fuchsia
Fuchsia

FdM's first-ever full-blown reissue and it's the classic album from 1971 - but it's going to be more than that - quite a bit more, in fact (we may be half-soaked but don't do half-measures round here), as it's being extended to a double LP, with previously unreleased recordings, including the band's first demo, plus a DVD, a fold-out poster and more.

Cromlech Chronicles III
Sendelica

Sendelica will be back just in time for the 16th Dream festival, and with a harder-edged sound for this latest installment in their Welsh chronicles. As it's Part 3, it'll have a 3D front cover and it'll come as a set of three 10" records - all just for the hell of it.
