Charlie Sepúlveda is trumpeter of power and nuance. On this recording, Sepúlveda takes on the challenge of preserving culture without being trapped by it.
He can take a tried-and-true classic like "Besamé Mucho," and instead of falling into the routine he completely modernizes it, stripping the tune of his sometime over-emphasized bolero rhythm and makes something completely new and communicative.
The EP is produced especially for Caro’s biggest tour to date; the exotic ‘Emerald Island Tour‘ which kicks off in the UK on March, 28 in Carlisle. The EP is produced by David Schreurs and Jan van Wieringen and contains six new tracks. Among these tracks are the dubby song ‘Never Ever’, the new single ‘Whatchugot’ and two instrumental tracks. The songs are co-written by Vincent Degiorgio and Guy Chambers. Both the tour and the EP are inspired by Exotica, a musical genre from the 50/60’s which contains exotic sounds and instruments.
The demos "Stronger" and "Mistery" belong to the pre-production sessions of 'Ilussia' (before we make the lyrics we always do them in broken English, although for this occasion we have corrected and searched them). The song "Revolution" is a demo of the great song of KHY that was recorded for the album 'Celtic Land' (although for reasons of space never got recorded for the disc).

A collector's dream come true, Traditional Doom Cult contains two rare and unreleased tracks from Darkthrone's Fenriz under the Isengard banner, the iconic solo project of Darkthrone's Fenriz, which was active from the late 1980s to the mid-1990s. Tracks include The Light - an early song recorded in 1989 - and The Fright from the early 1990s. Both tracks bring to mind the doom-laden grooves (draped in darkness!) present on Isengard's debut release, Vinterskugge. The recordings were made at the legendary Necrohell studios with Fenriz responsible for all instruments and vocals.
