First off all, I do have to say that August In The Urals is a pretty good album, isn't it?

I really like this album and I'm starting getting intereseted in the band that produced this awesome CD: Deluge Grander. But there are very few information in the internet and their page is somehow incomplete.

It seems Deluge Grander is a project of a musician called Dan Britton who plays (or has played?) in a band called Cerebus Effect.

However, I've got some questions to ask.

1.) Are there any pictures (except August In The Urals' cover) of Deluge Grander (members, live-photos etc.) in the internet?

2.) The fifth song on August In The Urals, The Solitude Of Miranda has a part in which a woman sings something backwarts. So I've reversed the song, but still could not understand what she was singing because the part was sung in a foreign language I have never learned. Maybe it is Turkish or Arabian, but I do not really know. Is anybody out there who has reversed that part too and who was able to understand what the woman is singing about? I guess nobody, but still I wanted to ask. Wink

3.) Are they going to produce a new album this or next year? Or was it just a one-album-project?

Thank you for wasting your time on this. Wink

When I asked Dan Britton said he is now focusing on the new project Birds and Buildings which has new material and they are in the process of recording it. He didn't say the DG is over, though...I really hope to listen to new material as well.

Regretfully I cannot answer any question.
What I can do is to add that also want the answers and of course agree with your first statement after listening to the CD a couple of times now.Thumbs%20Up

Maybe we should just ask Dan Britton! When I sent him an email (this winter) to tell him that his album got glowing reviews on Prog Archives, he replied:

'Hi Jos- I read your review and am very grateful to you for posting it on Prog Archives. I'm also especially proud that you mentioned "The Fountain of Salmacis" in there, as that happens to be my favorite song ever.

I started playing in a new band, which will probably be called Birds and Buildings. We're going to start recording an album over the next few weeks, and hopefully have it done by this summer.'

Personally, I'd love to know what "Inaugural Bash" is about. The sleeve picture looks intriguing but tells us virtually nothing, the lyrics are by no means easy to decode - and what's with the smurfs?
