What Graceless Dawn

Band:WORM OUROBOROS
Album:What Graceless Dawn
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

With their third LP “What Graceless Dawn”, Oakland’s WORM OUROBOROS have brought into existence their deepest and most moving work yet. The follow-up to 2012’s “Come The Thaw” which was the band’s sophomore release, the trio of bassist/vocalist Lorraine Rath (ex-The Gault/Amber Asylum), guitarist/vocalist Jessica Way (Barren Harvest), and drummer Aesop Dekker (Vhol, ex-Agalloch/Ludicra) have taken the WORM OUROBOROS sound to a new level of sophistication through their amalgam of morose 4AD-esque doom, introspective death rock, dark ambient, and enchanting chamber goth. Through obsessive bass lines, ambient guitar movements, layers and overtones, the alluring vocal intertwining between Rath and Way, along with Dekker’s subtle yet procession-like percussion parts “What Graceless Dawn” is a sonic vision of tragedy and despair, one of the saddest, crippling, and gut-wrenching releases in the realm of heavy, dark, introspective music to bring the curtain down on the year. 

For fans of Agalloch, Pallbearer, Cocteau Twins, Yob, Amber Asylum, and the 4AD roster.

 

 

Cast Away Souls

Band:CARDINAL WYRM
Album:Cast Away Souls
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Following their 2015 Svart Records release ‘Black Hole Gods’, California doom trio Cardinal Wyrm return with their new full-length release ‘Cast Away Souls’. With a sound described as “dense and riff-laden” by Terrorizer and “theatrical and grandiose” by Decibel, Cardinal Wyrm’s latest full length continues the band’s hypnotic wandering through the borderlands of reality and myth. Taking further leaps with the band’s style and songwriting, guitarist Nathan Verrill and vocalist / drummer Pranjal Tiwari are joined in this genre-bending release by new addition to the Cardinal Wyrm family, Leila Abdul-Rauf (Vastum, Hammers of Misfortune, ex-Amber Asylum). A gatefold and booklet of fantastical, full-color artwork by Kim Holm (Solstafir, Vreid) serves as the only map for listeners as they drift on a river of riffs towards the sonic islands of six epic, mesmeric tracks, on a journey through dimensions within and beyond.

Arctic Blues

Band:Eero Koivistoinen and Umo Jazz Orchestra
Album:Arctic Blues
Label:SVART
Format:2CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

The saxophonist and composer Eero Koivistoinen, who turned 70 this winter, is going through an exceptionally creative phase in his career. Koivistoinen celebrated his birthday together with the jazz orchestra UMO (Uuden Musiikin Orkesteri, New Music Orchestra), which he took part in founding in the mid‐seventies. Arctic Blues was recorded in Helsinki this winter and mixed and mastered in Power Sound Studio, Amsterdam. The album is a showcase of Koivistoinen's talents as composer, arranger, saxophonist as well as conductor, conducting one of the most remarkable European big bands of today. Arctic Blues is a behemoth of an album, spread over two CDs and three LPs, being the first Finnish jazz record of such magnitude. After founding UMO 40 years ago together with Esko Linnavalli and Heikki Sarmanto, Koivistoinen has often worked with the orchestra, and also acted as its director for a few years in the 1990s. Arctic Blues consists of mostly new material, recorded in the winter of 2016, but also features three tracks from a live session at UMO Concert House in 2005. The album has big band renditions of Koivistoinen's past work as well as material written for this record in mind. "In the 1970s, I studied composition and arranging at the Berklee College of Music, Boston, under the guidance of Herb Pomeroy. It waas an important phase in my musical development. UMO was my second musical college. The orchestra made it possible for me to become acquainted with the best works for big band, guided by the masters themselves. UMO had guest musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie, Thad Jones, Gil Evans, Joe Henderson", recalls Koivistoinen and adds, "Since we played a lot of these current numbers live with UMO at the shows this winter, the studio session was an easy and inspirational one." - 2CD SET.

Known for its fierce live shows, the Finnish instrumental trio is now ready to face the world with its Nordic electronic soundscapes. ”We’ve been working on HURMOS for over three years now, and finally we feel we’re ready to share it with other people. During the process of making the album we gravitated more and more towards electronic sounds, so HURMOS ended up being a synthesis of these quite old compositions and modern sound production. For us, the years the process took felt almost like a test as if the music we made could tolerate the erosion of time.” - CD
