ACTS OF REPENTANCE

Band:WARDAEMONIC (AUSTRALIA)
Album:ACTS OF REPENTANCE
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

Australian black metal force WARDAEMONIC return with the mightiest album of their career. They've gone from strength to strength and on the new album they've even incorporated slower, dissonant parts that work brilliantly when contrasted with their trademark blasting music. This is top-shelf black metal that's uncompromising and steely in its approach, backed with enough experience to make this memorable and also intriguing enough to keep coming back to it for more. This is superbly executed, timeless form of black metal that melds sounds associated with it into one epic, powerful expression that can be deemed quintessential. 'Acts of Repentance' gets more elaborate as it progresses, first pummelling the listener into submission and then casting a spell with their transcendental progressions. This is among the finest albums to come out of Australia and is sure to go down as a landmark album for the unheralded band.

 

 

BLESSED BY EMBERS

Band:DRAKONIS
Album:BLESSED BY EMBERS
Label:HOSTILE MEDIA
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Northern Irish black metal outfit Drakonis have unveiled details for the much anticipated forthcoming record Blessed By Embers, following up on great acclaim garnered from their more recent concept work, late 2017’s The Great Miasma. Their debut full length is a story driven concept spanning eight songs. Each taking us through a different chapter following the rise and fall of a charismatic cult leader, who allows darkness and fire to shape and purify his followers, ‘The Wretched’ Initially formed under the working ‘Order of Shadow’ (at the time including Gareth Murdock of Alestorm), Drakonis has been an ongoing project for many years, featuring Saul McMichael and Lee McCartney of pagan metal veterans, Waylander. The band remained a studio project until 2015, when a line up was assembled to take things to the live arena. Over the past 5 years the band has brought not just extreme metal to the live circuit, but a highly visual experience. Armed with corpse paint, blood, skulls, spikes, chainmail and live orchestral samples, the band’s entire energy revolves around the live stage show, and will only grow in scale as the band evolves.

 

 

CONCRETE REALMS OF PAIN

Band:CASKETS OPEN
Album:CONCRETE REALMS OF PAIN
Label:NINE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:DOOM METAL

Although their spectrum of influences is wide, Helsinki's Caskets Open still identify themselves as a doom metal band. Top-notch crushing heavy metal riffs and hardcore punk bursts are sewn together with their trademark DIY blue collar approach and innovative songwriting. Their fourth full-length album "Concrete Realms of Pain" is a 46 minutes long testament of a band in its prime. Caskets Open was formed in the small and desolate town of Keuruu in 2007, but has been based in Helsinki for over ten years already. The band operates as a power trio that's stripped down of everything unnecessary but still creates a massive sound. Throughout the years Caskets has warmed up the stage for bands like Church of Misery, Wolves In The Throne Room and Primitive Man for example.
