    This is the darkest excursion Amongst Myselves has taken and he’d like you to come along on the inward focussed journey to explore your darkest thoughts and fears. “The Past Is Another Country” is a new turn in his compositional style which leaves more melodic works behind, embracing more organic electronic and natural sounds.

The Past Is Another Country is quietly contemplative. Your mind is emptying , taking in your surroundings, the light breeze, the cooling of Autumn after another hot dry summer.

Dark Places, Winter Shadows is when the bad memories come back and take you into a darkening state but not a frightened state. You are taken through your memories but you try to repress them as they are upsetting - down, down into a darkened state. But you are observing this state of mind and not experiencing it yourself.

He Who Bathes in the Black Sun - Some believe in a devil, Satan, but this is just your state of mind, the dark side. A place you venture to which gives your life contrast. Here are the souls who have gone to far - taken the dark side as the only option. You are being drawn closer to these souls.

Cave of the Swimmers - you've taken yourself to a desert location, an abandoned out station. You are alone sort of - your memories are here and they are still reflecting those souls. Should you be there yourself ? You are alone with your thoughts.

The Day The Crickets Listened - the bad memories are knocking at the door and you fight them but they are strong. Inhabiting your whole soul but they will not win.

Campfires of the Night Skies - your mind is clearing and your focus has gone to your surrounds - blinded by the beauty of the desert - the silence. Your thoughts return many times - phasing in and out. Those campfires - the stars - are there with your as your guardian - forever changing but appear so static.

In My Depths, All Treasure Dwells - Your body feels disconnected to your mind - they are different beings, separate entities - you float - your mind is a million miles away travelling through the galaxies.
