Review qoutes and accomplishments

My music have been reviewed by many all over the world so this are just a few qoutes and accomplishments:

Wired Magazine
“The most intresting recent recordings out of middle-earth”

Musical Zone Japan
First 1000/1000

Chain D.L.K
Several albums/releases 5/5 stars

Malignant Records
“There is NOTHING like this out there, period” award

Dark Treasure Magazine
Best CD of the year 2001

Gothtronic
“An undisputed musical highlight of this year”, 2008
CD of the month (August), 2008

Sfi-fi Online / Graveyard
“This is the best album I’ve heard so far – and it kicks the crap out of a lot of movie soundtracks. 10/10”

Heathen Harvest
“These guys are extremely talented and have a great imagination. Immerse yourself in their world, and support these excellent musicians.”

Dark Room Magazine
“Still again it’s a dark music full of tense and drama, captured by a pathos sometimes unmatched and with an exquisite Fantasy matrix. For a duo that keeps giving us splendid pages of dreaming musical art, by whose tunes you can let go of your mind towards less oppressing scenarios than the rarely encouraging reality of our times.”

Runa, Compulsion, Judas Kiss and Tolkien Society (Amon Hen)
“Convincing releases in that they comprise what their composers setout to realize – a sensorial tale through which the audience travels overvarying soundscapes with the imagined protagonists and are ably structured enough to be two of the foremost compositions in a rather obscure, but emerging, genre of music.”

Row Magazine
“The vocal capabilities of Simon Kölle are greatly showcased, a stunning voice soaring above any accompanying strings and ritualistic drums”

Kogainon Underground Music Magazine
“Fantasy Dark Epic Music at its most! Simon Kölle and Simon Heath have outdone themselves with the last two fresh materials”

Radio Rivendell
“All you readers need to know about this CD is that the music and story is done by masters and that this is a masterpiece!”…”I thought about giving this CD 6/5 but I am not allowed to do it so 5/5 it is!”

Monitor Records, Hong Kong
“Beautiful melodies from heaven”

Ennio Morricone (Composer)
“This is wonderful and dark” (Ennio have on several occasions given praise to my music)

Oliver Stone (Director)
“Fantastic Music which I love”

Richard Jarnhed (Director, Script Writer)
“I have found a music brother, as nerdy as myself. Simon is a composer & producer who delivers all genres. His ability to manage input and feedback is
impressive. We have together moved through thriller, drama, advertising and corporate film. It is always a joy to work with someone who is as dedicated as himself”

John Malkovich (Actor)
“I really enjoy Simon’s Music”

Lars Gustafson (Editor)
Simon has the keen ability to interpret and improve the emotional context of a film like no other. Really extraordinary to work with and collaborates on everything.”

Michael Cunningham (Journalist, Author)
“Simon remains one of the foremost and pioneering craftsmen in his genre and his multitude of works”

Rasmus Tirzitis (Director, Editor)
“Simon knows how to deliver! From small personal to great epic moments. He’s incredibly dedicated and  multifaceted.”

Attauallah Khan Esakhelvi (Musician)
“I have listen to your [Simon’s] music many times and I love it”

Titus Paar (Director, Script Writer)
“I will work with Simon on many features to come, this is a man that can produce anything from Black Metal to Feel good movie score.”

Stefan Cronwall (Actor)
“Simon is our nordic John Williams. I am impressed”

Aquarius Records
“When you think Ring Wraiths and Gollum and all that, do you think ‘this would go great with some new age music’? Neither do we. So come on Peter Jackson, here’s your chance to add some credibility to the LOTR soundtrack/score for part three!! COME ON!!!”

Scott Oden (Author)
“Your music is an inspiration; it not only helped me write a book, but it also soothed my nerves during a bad time in my life.”
