    End of the Steam Age by Christian Fiesel & Jack Hertz

    By 1915, the familiar whistle cry and billowing smoke of the locomotive. Had come to the end of the line when a world powered by stream, gave way to the quiet and clean electricity. Visions of these great mechanical marvels lost in time are the canvas for this new album by Christian Fiesel and Jack Hertz. Driven by steam, the artists are riding into the past when the technology of combining heat and water, powered commerce, industry and innovation. Listen now at https://auralfilms.bandcamp.co...

    Divina Commedia III : Nine Spheres by Scott Lawlor & Jack Hertz

    In this, the final installment of the Dante Trilogy, we wanted to bring forth, in the listeners mind, a sense of timelessness and so this concept album is a sprawling 2 and a half hours of music, which, like in the previous two volumes, doesn't take the listener on a literal journey through the Nine Spheres, but acts as a guide to the imagination, setting it free in wonderment about the nature of the divine.
