A SINGLE POINT OF LIGHT

Band:TERMINUS
Album:A SINGLE POINT OF LIGHT
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:EPIC METAL

Second full-length album from Northern Ireland epic metallers Terminus that continues their exploration into science fiction realms. It took three years for Terminus multi-instrumentalist and songwriter David Gillespie to compile the tracks for the band’s sophomore A Single Point of Light studio album. During that time, Gillespie was willingly subjected, in his own words, to “endless navel-gazing and hand-wringing” over the album’s particulars. Since he was responsible for every note and arrangement, not to mention handling the recording process at his home studio, the album became all-encompassing, a quest to improve upon the band’s well-received 2015 The Reaper’s Spiral debut. Based on the strength and depth of A Single Point of Light’s seven tracks, Gillespie and vocalist James Beattie succeeded in every respect. Mixed and mastered by Richard Whittaker (Solstice) and with artwork created by Anaïs Mulgrew, A Single Point of Light represents the logical next step in the music development of the Northern Ireland epic metallers. Their brand of twisting, sometimes complex, but always effective metal does not lend itself to one particular era or sonic reference point. Instead, Terminus songs are often mini-journeys onto themselves, a regular confluence of spiraling riff changes, guitar harmony duels and Beattie’s emotive vocals.

Infectious space rock and metal from Australia, delivered by the one and only Imperial Priestess. Bow to the Imperial Priestess!

Tales of her existence have already been shared, but there is a new chronicle, one that will shine a light on her trans-dimensional travels and accomplishments. Its name is ‘Memoirs of a Rat Queen’.

THE ARCHITECTURE OF MELANCHOLY

Band:PETER BJARGO
Album:THE ARCHITECTURE OF MELANCHOLY
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:EXPERIMENTAL/AMBIENT

Peter Bjärgö, the man behind the now legendary groups ARCANA and SOPHIA is back with his second solo album. On his first solo release "A wave of Bitterness", we got a glimpse into the mind of a thoughtful person. Now this new release, "The Architecture Of Melancholy", we are sent onto a journey to the darkest depths of Peter's mind and thoughts. Melancholy was once a disease, a mental statement of chronic depression, we are now facing this illness again around the world and this album is a real journey with the melancholic mind. Titles like Bitteresque, Apathy and The Death Of Our Sun give us an idea of the aural voyage ahead. The delicate blend of soft guitars, engulfing dark ambient and the sheer power of Peter's voice make this album a shining diamond among stones. Hope is all that is left... Repress of 500 copies in 8 panel Digipak. 7 Tracks. Running Time 40:30

 

 

GNARLED RITUAL OF SELF ANNIHILATION

Band:BLACK EARTH
Album:GNARLED RITUAL OF SELF ANNIHILATION
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:EXPERIMENTAL/AMBIENT

Spanish ritualistic industrial sorcerers BLACK EARTH return with "Gnarled Ritual of Self Annihilation" - a sophomore fulllength LP of unreal cinematic sonic disembodiment, conceived with the aim of turning the listener into a sacrificial centrepiece to a surreal ritual nightmare. Following in the steps of their debut LP "A Cryptic Howl of Morbid Truth" and of their followup mini-album "Diagrams of a Hidden Order", on "Gnarled Ritual of Self Annihilation" Black Earth further refine and sharpen their horrific sonic blade, slicing through shadows and darkness with more skill and mastery than ever before to reveal a dimension beyond of incomprehensible ritual abandon. As they first weave and then slice and dissect their impenetrable veil, a sonic ritual of abject disfigurement begins to take shape before the listener, as the strokes and gashes of black metal, industrial, noise and ritual drone intersect erratically and hypnotically, painting an hallucinatory arabesque of absolute dread and deformity. As the album's wicked spires envelops them like a fog of snakes, the listener finds themselves immersed into an hallucinating aural delirium of complete disembodiment and self-implosion, in which they feel simultaneously out of body and helplessly trapped and crushed within themselves at the same time. CD Edition of 500 copies in 4 panel Digisleeve. 7 Tracks. Running Time 45:04
