SUMMONING

Нынешний гол богат на релизы — как долгожданные, так порой и неожиданные. Некоторые из них подпадают под оба определения разом — например, ‘Old Mornings Dawn’ от австрийского дуэта SUMMONING. С одной стороны, этого диска фанаты ждали давно — с момента выхода великолепного ‘Oath Bound’ прошло уже целых семь лет. С другой стороны, именно это долгое ожидание наводило на невеселые мысли. В эпоху тотального пиратства чисто студийный проект, не зарабатывающий денег на концертах — дело не слишком рентабельное. К тому же, как можно было заметить по новостным лентам, один из отцов-основателей Summoning, Рихард Ледерер, известный также как Протектор, в течение этих

Aug. 20: Bobby McFerrin, a virtuoso who never met a musical genre he couldn’t wrap his supple vocal chords around convincingly, turns to spiritual music with his «Spirit-youall» album.

WEBSTER HALL

Aug. 14: The highly influential rapper El-P and the Outkast collaborator Killer Mike have joined forces as Run the Jewels. Their self-titled Fool’s Gold release showcases their brilliant, aggressive delivery of complex rhymes. As indie-rap veterans, both are at the top of their game, a refreshing antidote to Top 40 rap artists who peak at younger ages with skills far less honed. As Mike declares on the song «Get

SUMMER SUMMARY

В УГОЛОЧКЕ СОЛНЦА

Дело в том, что современные игры писались с оглядкой на возможности GeForce и Radeon, поэтому накладывать на треугольник больше двух текстур за один проход они попросту не обучены. В будущих игровых шедеврах поддержка четырехкратного текстурирования за один проход должна приносить немало пользы, однако пока едва ли не единственной работой для “лишних” текстурных блоков остается анизотропная фильтрация.

Фактически это ограничение ставит крест на всех выгодах от совместимости блока T&L с грядущим игровым API Microsoft.

СМЕСТИТЬ И ЗАГЛАДИТЬ

Аппаратная поддержка карт смещений — одна из самых интересных особенностей Parhelia. Карты смещений (displacement maps) — это

SUMMER PULSE 04

ON JUNE 2, the US Department of Defense announced plans for a simultaneous deployment of seven US Navy carrier strike groups (CSGs) in five theatres with allied and coalition forces. All seven carriers will be deployed under Exercise SUMMER PULSE 04, the US Navy’s first such deployment under its new Fleet Response Plan (FRP).

The primary objective of the FRP is to provide six CSGs to support contingency operations around the

SULTANS OF SWING

From mezze to the rituals of the hammam, you’ll taste the best of what Turkey has to offer at a racking new resort on the Mediterranean coast.

Here are many things to love about Turkey. The romance of its history and culture; its architectural wonders; the food — and what glorious food it is. For spa fans it’ll probably be the traditional hammam ritual, which is said to have kept the harems of the Ottoman Empire happily occupied when off duty and which is still a favourite pastime for modern Turkish women and men. Before even arriving in the country

Sukhoi Su-35-1 Maiden Flight

SUKHOI’S PROTOTYPE Su-35-1 multi-role fighter, ‘901 Blue’, undertook its first flight from Zhukovsky, near Moscow, on February 18. Built at the KnAAPO factory in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, it was completed in August 2007, just in time for the MAKS 2007 airshow. The aircraft was airfreighted to Zhukovsky inside an An-124 just before the show, where it was then placed on static display (see Sukhoi’s Su-35 Makes Its Debut, November, p20). Since then it had been completing a series of ground tests and was expected to have flown by November, but this was delayed by three months, for unknown reasons.

KnAAPO is currently

SUICIDE COMMANDO

Привет, Иохан! Несколько предыдущих альбомов Suicide Commando, в том числе и ‘Implements of Hell’ 2010 года, были посвящены жизни различных знаменитых серийных убийц. На этот раз ты тоже раскопал биографию какого-нибудь очередного мерзкого типа с ножом в кармане?

«Нет, на этот раз никакой конкретный серийный убийца не служил мне источником вдохновения, несмотря на то, что такие песни, как «Cut Bleed Eviscerate» и «When Evil Speaks» достаточно близки к теме кровожадных маньяков. Альбом ‘When Evil Speaks’ имеет дело в большей степени с темами мести и ненависти, но в этом смысле он, хоть и не напрямую, также связан с серийными убийцами, в
