I received this via email this morning. Glad to see it. I ordered my physical CD quite a while ago, but I’ve still not received it. It seems to be quite the rage in British and European prog circles. Now, North and South Americans can download it as well. Amen.
Firstly we would like to thank everybody for purchasing the album and for all their kind words and compliments. The album is really doing well and getting a great reaction across the board.
We would really appreciate any way that you can spread the word about Kompendium; Forums, Facebook, Radio Stations and TV.
For us it’s all about getting the word out that this special album is available. So all help is warmly appreciated.

Beneath The Waves Now Available to Download !
We have been asked repeatedly for instrumental mixes of the album. So Beneath The Waves, the album, will now available in instrumental form for a limited period to download from Bandcamp.
One downside of the digital revolution is the inevitable pirating of the album and its availability of download from unscrupulous pirate sites. Although the original intention behind Beneath The Waves was to recreate and bring up to date the ritual and special feeling of holding a physical LP or CD in your hands, we know that there are people out there who prefer to take delivery of their music in download form. So in an attempt to at least have some control of the quality and payment for the digital album we’ve decided to make Beneath The Waves available via download.
The album is available as FLAC, ALAC, AAC and MP3 from Bandcamp (our preferred point of purchase our preferred point of purchase as they don’t take a huge amount of commission) and as AAC from iTunes and MP3 from Amazon and CD Baby.
BUT don’t forget that Beneath The Waves is still available direct in all its glorious physical CD/DVD or LP form from www.kompendium-web.com and all good distributors.
Possibility of Kompendium Live Performance ?
In a recent interview with Prog Magazine, Rob Reed had this to say regarding a live performance of Beneath The Waves:-
“We’ve had a great response so far – people have really got what we were trying to achieve. There’s a possibility of a live performance next year, but I would want the show to have the same standard of production as the album.”
