April 2006: Strange Fortune Newsletter: Sol Veritas LuxA Strange Fortune Update Good Friday 2006
SOL VERITAS LUX
Hail neofolk legions of America! Strange Fortune has a special announcement for you.
Strange Fortune is now accepting preorders for Sol Invictus _Sol Veritas Lux_, from Tursa USA distributed by Strange Fortune.
First released in 1990, _Sol Vertias Lux_ combines the first Sol Invictus LP "Against the Modern World" along with the live recording "In the Jaws of the Serpent" and additional bonus material.
_Sol Vertias Lux_ is considered by many not only the most defining Sol Invictus release, but also one of the key releases to have helped define the neofolk movement in music.
Out of print for a few years, _Sol Vertias Lux_ always stood as one of the best selling Sol Invictus albums. The new 2006 reissue celebrates nearly 20 years of Sol Invictus, and is freshly remastered by Denis Blackham. It is the first Sol Invictus album to be released at the same time in both North American & European editions.
_Sol Veritas Lux_ is promoted & distributed by Strange Fortune in North America, and in Europe by Dark Vinyl Germany. Release date in North America is late April/early May.
Take a stand against the modern world and reserve an all time classic now for just $13 & shipping at:

GEM OF THE MONTH: PROCER VENEFICUS
Strange Fortune's Gem of the Month for April 2006 is _Ghostvoices_ by Procer Veneficus.
Procer Veneficus weaves a deeply evocative spell using only simple acoustic guitar, minor atmospheric treatments and whispered vocals. The gloomiest, foggiest recording you ever heard. "ghost ambient" from a new direction.
Procer Veneficus _Ghostvoices_ is in stock & available to order right away for just $11 & shipping at

Lastly, apologies for any sluggish response to customer service the past couple weeks. The Strange Fortune offices were immobilized with some kind of bird flu. We're almost caught up now.
