Transcend With Time – A Haunting Presence

The music on ‘A Haunting Presence’ can best be described as progressive New Age/Ambient, sometimes infused with a small ammount of rock influenses. The soundscapes are highly melodic and ethereal, and will take you to places only your dreams can generate. One of my favourite tracks on this album has to be ‘Through Shifting Lines’ as it has a great deal of melodic guitar textures that shines through like a pendulum from start to finish. Other great notable tracks are ‘Into A Solace Room’ , with (as the album title says) it’s haunting and evocative feeling throughout, and the track ‘Beneath’ which is a rockier and more uptempo piece that keeps the pulse going on strong. The album closes in with the beautiful piano driven piece called ‘ In Seclusion’. This song is indeed gorgeous, especially if you play it loud using headphones!. All that said, ‘Transcend With Time’ will, without a doubt, immerse you into a haunting presence. It’s an astonishing and versatile album that demands attention and repeated listenings to really grow on you. It could perhaps best be described as a mix of Clannad (their instrumental works), Jeff Woodall and Simeon Harris. That said, pour all of these artists in a mixer and add some of  Mark’s own imaginary ideas, and this is the music you’ll get!. Recommended!!
