New shoots from old roots. It's been 8 years since Simon's well received album...
...74 (point seven four) written under the pseudonym Maitreya. With this his first release under his own name Simon Lomax steps out from behind the name to reveal something a little deeper.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that with the change of name that perhaps there would also be a change in sound but instead there is a deepening and layering capturing the very best of Simon's previous work underpinning the new growth.
Zone of Cold explores new atmospheres and structures which give this release a certain holographic ethereal quality all of it's own. You will hear the unmistakeable Maitreya of old but with the new qualities that takes you somewhere more. From the gathering momentum of opener On the Horizon through to the vaporous Crystalline Air and the aching stillness of This Fragile Veil, Zone of Cold is a well worth a listen and well worth the wait.
