soothe the soul
chewable morsels
living stones
windows to the soul
closer than brothers
the God-shaped hole
in the beginning

The song Dry Bones was featured on the CPR Volume 1 release.


Here's what the critics had to say about Theophonic Cloud:


"I canít wait for the release of this fantastic American bandís debut. Dry Bones sounds like a marriage between Threshold and Iona (so, yep, thatís possible). Thanks in no small measure to the fantastic voice of Collette Taylor and the heavenly guitar solos (especially the one at the end!) by Lance Haynes. The track is mixed by Fred Schendel (Glass Hammer)".

- Mark M

 Dutch Progressive Rock Page:

"Theophonic Cloud.. to me, this is the most exciting debut on the disc. Lyrically, it is about the weird vision of the prophet Ezekiel, of a valley of skeletons being clad with muscles and flesh again, receiving the breath of life, to form an army for the Lord. How on earth this vision ended up on a progressive rock album is a marvel to me, but it works out great. How to describe it? A metal Porcupine Tree? A psychedelic Under the Sun? Anyway, great female singer, pounding drums, haunting guitar, infectious riffs, somewhat epic. This exotic surprise proves a hard act to follow.."

Other than a new single released on Songs for Luca 2, recordings have been on hold as several members of the band have relocated to a different state and are setting up a new studio, complicated by the complete waste of time that is Windows Vista.

The song is featured on the CPR Volume 1 compilation CD which was recently released on Threshing Floor Records.   There are 18 artists on the compilation, including Neal Morse, Glass Hammer, Salem Hill, Proto-Kaw w/ Kerry Livgren, and Ajalon with special guest Rick Wakeman.
