Lost Links II - The Complete Collection presents us with a series of tracks that help us interpret the evolution of Max Corbacho as an electronic artist. Evocative and ethereal forms merge into ghostly drones and colorful chords linking each track with successive albums, tracing a trajectory of more than 20 years as an atmospheric ambient artist.
This music, unknown to most of the public, has remained largely hidden for years. Some of these tracks are known by a few to be published in compilations of various artists. Other tracks were released by the Relaxed Machinery label in the first version of this album. Some others have never been published. They are now compiled by the artist and released on a double album.
A collection of hypnotic soundscapes that slowly unfold in a magmatic flow of rich textures and soul touching passages.
Enjoy the limited "name your price" offer in the Bandcamp store for the digital version. The CD version can already be pre-ordered.

Lost Links II—The Complete Collection
Deleted, unreleased, and forgotten tracks
Some pieces in this album were included in compilations of various artists by other labels, but most of them were created to appear on previously published albums. For various reasons, they were not included and remained in my archives. I usually do not delete any of my pieces, as I know that at some point, simply because of the passing of time, they acquire a special character. Their time to be revealed appears.
Lost Links was originally released in 2011 by the Relaxed Machinery label as a single album.
On Disk 1, there are nine new tracks rescued from my archives. Some were included in compilations, and others are completely unreleased. Disk 2 contains the original album released by Relaxed Machinery.
Catacombs of Perception, Slow Thunder, and Third Exposure are three pieces that belonged to an early version of The Talisman.
The Present Miracle and Ceremonial Sky (included in the soundtrack of the cult game Neocron) are pieces that were created around 2001–2002.
After Dream, North Rose Alignment, and Beyond Vaults were created for Ars Lucis but were ultimately not included in the album.
Oversoul and Slow Rust were included in compilations for the Atmoworks and Relaxed Machinery labels, respectively.
In Mind, Spirit, and Light was created in 2006 and never released.
Earthflow Trance was specially composed for a concert in 2005.
One True Light and Mandala were created during the sessions for BreathStream.
Endless Formations was created for a collaboration album that was not made.
