INTO THE VAST UNCHARTED

Band:NETHERBIRD
Album:INTO THE VAST UNCHARTED
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:SWEDISH DEATH/BLACK METAL

NETHERBIRD has blurred the boundaries between black, death and other extreme strains of heavy metal since 2004. The band was founded by like-minded individuals among the Swedish metal scene with the intentions of creating harsh metal while drawing inspiration from black and death metal without any regards, or limitations, to the structures surrounding each respective sub-genre. Their last album, 2016’s critically-acclaimed The Grander Voyage, catapulted the band into the higher echelon of extreme underground metal. Now, it is time for the next step with the release of "Into The Vast Uncharted”. As the band's first album to feature former Amon Amarth drummer Fredrik Andersson, 'Into The Vast Uncharted' is a straight ripper of an album. Produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Amorphis, Apocalyptica) and mastered by Dan Swanö (Asphyx, Incantation, Marduk), the album's seven tracks blaze a trail of Scandinavian fury by way of blistering tremolo, scorching solos and battle-ready percussion. Almost as important, Into The Vast Uncharted's breathtaking cover art is derived from Swedish painter August Malmström's 1866 oil on canvas 'Älvalek'.

CLOVEN FIRES

Band:MOSAIC
Album:CLOVEN FIRES
Label:Eisenwald
Format:7”(ltd. black vinyl)
Genre:DARK METAL/AVANTGARDE/FOLK

In advance of MOSAIC's upcoming debut full-length 'Secret Ambrosian Fire', the band – directed by multi-instrumentalist Valkenstijn (Sun of the Sleepless, Empyrium) – opens a new circle with 'Cloven Fires'. Known for its long and complex atmospheric battery, the band's upcoming music offers an entirely different approach to what it calls "Supreme Thuringian Folklore." "Cloven Fires" was recorded in Valkenstijn's House of Inkantation, between MMXV and MMXVI, and features D.E. of Werian on drums and longtime collaborator Leshiyas (Vivus Humare) on bass. The song itself deals with the four alchemistic transformation stages in a rather deep and metaphorical fashion. The b-side of the vinyl includes an exclusive unreleased recording from the Inkantation vaults, titled "Ambrosia." Featuring former Secrets of the Moon drummer Heemann on percussion, and recorded between MMXIV and MMXV, the track is a disturbing call to reflect modern society's imminent collapse. All music was mixed and mastered at Klangschmiede Studio E by Markus Stock (Empyrium, Sun of the Sleepless).

LEGENDS

Band:ETHEREAL RIFFIAN
Album:LEGENDS
Label:Robustfellow Prods.
Format:LP
Genre:SPIRITUAL PSYCH ROCK

“Legends,” leaves behind the ritualism that pervaded the four longform tracks of Aeonian in favor of a more direct, grunge-influenced style. Their sense of melody still holds sway, but “Legends” works in a context of hooks that’s new for Ethereal Riffian. More riffian than ethereal, if you will.” [JJ, The Obelisk] "A path is laid by Ethereal Riffian that leads from the 5 sense prison to beyond the veil of illusion and reveals the hidden realms from where comes the source of all that we experience." [Al, Heavy Planet]

DAKHMA

Band:COUNCIL OF NINE
Album:DAKHMA
Label:Cryo Chamber
Format:CD
Genre:DARK AMBIENT

Council of Nine (California, USA) debuts with a carefully crafted and masterfully produced album that carries the listener to a place of ancient history, through death into the void beyond. Previously known for his celebrated work on the Tomb of Empires split album, he shows here what he can do when given free range to encapsulate the listener on a full album. The bowed reverberation echoes across time and space while the holy sub frequencies of the universe are used to great effect to create a textural backdrop to isolation.
