RAM

Band:CHARLENE BERETAH
Album:RAM
Label:DIVISION RECORDS
Format:vinyl
Genre:DOOM/SLUDGE/CRUST/BLACK METAL

On this first album, the trio distils its influences through 5 titles clearly reeking of the world’s end. The atmospheres are varied, though always tempered by the heaviness and the gloominess inherent to the band’s dark obsessions. Depression, murders and possession (both demonic and chemical) are topics treated in an atmosphere of furious madness and palpable despair. The groove, undeniable, smashing, thunderous, is interspersed with crust-punk accelerations that also recall the great hours of the Scandinavian second wave of black metal. You've understood, this first album is not in made of fine lace, and that's precisely what’s so good about it.

NOVUS LUX DOMINUS

Band:ORTHODOXY
Album:NOVUS LUX DOMINUS
Label:THE SINISTER FLAME
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

A so-far shadowy entity, ORTHODOXY hail from Spain and formed sometime during the past decade. In 2015, the band's first demo, Shaarimoth, burst forth from the womb, displaying a band fully, frighteningly formed. Indeed, this collective were no mere youngsters; the band's founder hails from well-respected cult DOMAINS, also a part of THE SINISTER FLAME's very selective cabal. However, that demo was but a mere taste of the salacious, supernatural slime to follow...At last, it arrives in full-length form, bearing the title Novus Lux Dominus. Howling from a black void, ORTHODOXY arrogantly stride forward with far more focus and utterly gutted execution. No more but certainly no less, Novus Lux Dominus is all-caps DEATH METAL - pure and proud, dark and sinister, sidestepping all the muddled miscegenation of nowadays "death metal" - and duly delivers a ninesong/ 44-minute journey below the bowels of the Beyond. Magickal in every sense, Novus Lux Dominus weaves an alternately hypnotic and disruptive spell, beckoning the listener ever deeper into their devastating energies, only to flay both body and soul with a sadism borne of incomparable blackness. Thusly, ORTHODOXY create a Metal of Death that's haunting and crushing in equal measure. Strident, almost martial, ORTHODOXY's Novus Lux Dominus heralds a new era of ageless darkness.

OUTCOME OF OBNOXIOUS SCIENCE

Band:CRYPTIC BROOD
Album:OUTCOME OF OBNOXIOUS SCIENCE
Label:WAR ANTHEM RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Because of their lust for rancid and rotten death metal, three maniacs started the band CRYPTIC BROOD in the year 2013. Several physical regurgitations of their unique death metal and morbid live rituals all over the globe made them spread their plague in the repulsive realm of the death metal underground. Now, the brood is back from a short slumber in its cave to unveil their new album entitled "Outcome Of Obnoxious Science". CRYPTIC BROOD's second full-length is a sonic lobotomy that vaporizes your brain in a vortex of filth. Rotten metal of death to shatter your skull with ghastly grindcore and distasteful doom metal, (de-)composed in their dungeon in Wolfsburg/Germany.

 

 

LIVRE SECOND (LIMITED)

Band:LES CHANTS DU HASARD
Album:LIVRE SECOND (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:ORCHESTRAL BLACK/AVANTGARDE

LES CHANTS DU HASARD debuted in 2017 with an impressive, eponymous album of neoclassical music pervaded by a venomous black metal aura; a work that brought together the enthusiasts of Mussorgsky, Prokofiev and R. Strauss, the orphans of Elend and the fans of Ulver, Arcturus and Emperor. Arguably the band's sophomore release, “Livre Second” is definitely more focused and confident than its predecessor, getting sole member Hazard closer to what he always wanted to achieve: orchestral music as dark and violent as black metal. The production is clearer, deeper and stronger; the arrangements, richer and full of exquisite details; the atmospheres are more majestic than before, and Hazard's vocals never sounded more tortured, cavernous and evil. However, it's the violent tones of the songwriting that increased dramatically. The innate elegance of classical music, here displayed in all its beauty, emphasizes the emotional roller coster and the sense of grandeur in LES CHANTS DU HASARD's compositions, constantly in balance between perturbing dark arias and sharp fragments of grotesque operas (“Le Voluer d'Yeux”, feat. the spirited guest vocals of Vaerohn from Pensées Nocturnes), uplifting Gregorian chants and irrepressible eruptions of rage (“La Course”). Only the nocturnal, romantic charm of “L'Eveil” is able to momentarily untie the lump in the listener's throat.

 

 

BIOLUME PART I - IN  TARTAREAN CHAINS (LIMITED)

Band:MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY
Album:BIOLUME PART I - IN TARTAREAN CHAINS (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:COSMIC BLACK METAL/DOOM

Four years after their second album, the highly acclaimed “Shards Of Silver Fade”, MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY return with “Biolume Part I – In Tartarean Chains”, the first in a trilogy of albums exploring the themes of banishment and exile, of fallen gods and resentment, of sacrifice and despair. A representation of things that have been taken from us, and the desire to return to a previous embodiment or form. Once again, sole member Dis Pater recounts the ultimate journey through death in the shade of a Nature apparently indifferent, yet always glorious in its beauty and compassionate in its embrace. “When coming up with the ideas for Biolume, I was thinking of how the relationship of light and darkness are tied together,” explains the Australian musician. “In the darkest caves, the deepest parts of the ocean, there are lights which are produced by organisms, with no need for the sun. Darkness is seen as a place of banishment, you are expelled from the light. To survive you have to create your own light, which no matter how faint, enables you to see enough of what you need.”

 

 

ENTROPIC INCREASE FROM THE OMEGA AEON

Band:XUL OV KVLTEN
Album:ENTROPIC INCREASE FROM THE OMEGA AEON
Label:ATMF
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

XUL OV KVLTEN are ready to get further exposure via ATMF after the totally underground and strictly limited debut album, where they proved their dedication to the darkest and vilest form of black/death metal. The Chilean combo is now evoking morbidity and chaos, throwing in their cauldron of sound both INQUISITION's macabre feeling and early EMPEROR's obscure choruses, in order to glorify the dark lord beyond any sort of modern compromise. Not merely a black metal band with symphonic elements, XUL OV KVLTEN took possession of some elements from the European and US death metal schools, and the result sounds familiar and fresh at the same time. "Entropic Increase From The Omega Aeon" was recorded in DM6 Studio, Chile, between April 2018 and January 2019. If the meaning of true, honest, underground black metal is your mission, XUL OV KVLTEN will ring a bell. The growling vocals and the symbiosis between cold, razor-like guitars, pounding drums and the esoteric vibrations in the background make of this second effort something truly remarkable.
