LUWTE

Band:Fluisteraars
Album:LUWTE
Label:Eisenwald
Format:LP
Genre:Black Metal

The band's debut album titled "Dromers", was firmly rooted in the fertile soil cultivated by Drudkh, Primordial or even Agalloch, nevertheless built its own aura. Excellent reviews at the press, whilst also garnering end of year list entries and other critical accolades along the way, hailed Fluisteraars as one of the new potent stalwarts of Dutch black metal. Blending the welcoming, epic affair of their debut with more harsh and biting effort's more reminiscent of 90s black metal, Luwte captures the band from a slightly different, yet none less qualitative angle. While the band had already shown their effective vigour with time stretching melodic and edgy grandeur, this second album is very much the more ferocious finished extension to it. An unpolished yet elaborate production with final mastering duties taken over by Patrick W. Engel at TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY perfectly suits the dynamic, intelligent nature of the music. Even though much has been written and recorded when it comes to extreme metal, Fluisteraars are quite extraordinary in their way of arranging and presenting music. With vast influences concerning the ambience and atmospheric aspects of their craft the Dutch trinity is not to be easily stuck in just one plain direction. The early on forged term "Windswept Black Metal" recalling imagery of rain, decay, bleakness and intoxication still to date embodies their own amalgamation of intriguing, atmospheric music.

 

 

DON’T WASTE TIME

Band:IDLE HANDS
Album:DON’T WASTE TIME
Label:Eisenwald
Format:12” MLP
Genre:US METAL

Rising out of ashes of Prosthetic Records' traditional heavy metal quintet Spellcaster like a new wave phoenix, IDLE HANDS is bound to catch the attention of anyone who loves NWOBHM, occult rock or the sleaze of the 80s. Featuring five dark, moody and ballad-esque tracks, Don't Waste Your Time was recorded by Gabe Johnston (Spellcaster) and mastered by the illustrious Brad Boatright (Corrosion of Conformity, Yob). Formed in the heart of the Pacific Northwest in the fall of 2017, IDLE HANDS initially began solely as a creative outlet for former Spellcaster bassist Gabriel Franco, who now handles vocals and rhythm guitar in addition to being the band's sole songwriter. With the first EP under their belt, the band is set to release a full-length and tour heavily in 2019 across EUROPE and NORTH AMERICA.

 

 

STONE AND SEA

Band:FEN
Album:STONE AND SEA
Label:Eisenwald
Format:12” MLP
Genre:Black Metal

For over a decade, Fen have steadily developed into one of the most intriguing bands within the UK black metal scene. Often bracketed in with the post black metal or shoegaze black metal movements, Fen s sound is actually unique to themselves a startling fusion of searing, aggressive extremity, progressive daring and glacial, ambient beauty. Starting out with a pastoral form of atmospheric black metal on their acclaimed The Malediction Fields debut from 2009, across five full-length albums Fen s sound has expanded and diversified considerably to embrace a number of different elements all honed and synthesised into a distinctive, captivating soundscape. This culminated in the colossal Winter album which was released in 2017. In late 2015, the band recorded a three-track EP entitled Stone and Sea which was a deliberate hearken back to their older sound whilst still retaining the maturity the band had developed across the years. The intention was to record something for themselves , to escape from the album cycle for a time and work on a self-contained piece. The three tracks therefore present a conceptual narrative relating to the coastlines of Eastern England. Here, the sea claws at the landscape on a daily basis, dragging earth, houses and even churches beneath the waves. These evocative, crumbling coastlines were the inspiration for the material on this EP. Musically, Stone & Sea delivers a more direct approach to the Fen sound whilst also incorporating elements of traditional folk music and fusing it with a definite touch of the epic . Originally released on CD as part of a split in 2016, Eisenwald now proudly present this unique recording as a limited-edition vinyl MLP. Fans of the band s earlier works such as Ancient Sorrow will find much to appreciate here whilst those admire the band s more recent releases will doubtless enjoy a more immediate interpretation of the Fen sound. TRACKLIST 1. Tides of Glass 2. Stone & Sea 3. The Last Gravestone

 

 

HORIZON ONTHEEMT

Band:NUSQUAMA
Album:HORIZON ONTHEEMT
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CDD
Genre:ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL

A new apparition on the firmament of Dutch Black Metal, Nusquama offers a clear and purposeful performance on their first effort. The bands name is derived from Latin and was initially used by Thomas More to refer to the necessity and impossibility of a hopeful alternative. Further thematic inspiration is drawn from the pre-romantic poetry of Elizabeth Maria Post. Nusquama delivers a style of black metal that will be evident to those who are familiar with the musicians making up the band: N. and S. from Laster and Northward provide bass and guitar melodies, while M. of Fluisteraars delivers the foundational drum patterns. Finally, T. and O. from Turia complete the lineup with vocals and guitars respectively. Written over a two-year period, and recorded in September of 2018 in a 19th-century coach house, the six songs making up this record will sound at once like a convergence of the musicians other projects while seeking out uncharted paths in unforeseen ways. Moving between prideful stoicism and venomous rage, longing affirmation, and vitriolic despair. There s a melancholic sometimes almost resigned feeling ebbing and flowing throughout the songs, befitting of the story behind the Nusquama name. - Luís Pires, Roadburn Festival TRACKLIST 1. De Aarde Dorst 05:25 2. Wrevel 05:23 3. Vuurslag 4. Eufrozyne 06:24 5. Ontheemd 06:20 6. Met Gif Doordrenkt 07:30

DETOXINATION

Band:DARKNESS ON DEMAND
Album:DETOXINATION
Label:Repo
Format:CD
Genre:ELECTRO/GOTHIC/EBM

Darkness on Demand Detoxination (Album-CD) The electroband DARKNESS ON DEMAND has been founded by the former Dance or Die musicians Wagner and Falgalas in 2017. Now they are back with their second album. After their debut Post Stone Age Technology, released in 2018, they continue the futuristic journey with their new album Detoxination. Musically between transcendental atmospheres, striking dance beats and aggressive EBM, DARKNESS ON DEMAND get the listener out of the boring present into an automatic, digital future where mankind becomes more and more a cyborg character. The digital beings have been degenerated into grey consumers without the will to be individual. Ruled by attitude-dictators, they have to follow the slogan we are the borg, we are the collective . Dragged by that dark perspective of a near future the cyberpunks of DARKNESS ON DEMAND strike back with humanity, feelings and sadness to stand against this shocking development. The album title Detoxination is a word creation of detoxofication and nation to describe a global poisoned world of equality. Instead of falling into depression and religious insanity the band gives an impulse to reject that global agony. This album is a friendly kick into the butt of an ignorant establishment. Falgalas (keys and music), Wagner (vocals and lyriks) and the former keyboarder of Miss Construction, Seba, created a musical and picturesque future world to get the audience into their spell. TRACK LISTING 1 Never Look Back 2 Brain Fucked 3 Detoxination 4 Stay Away 5 When the Angel will be Send 6 Last Salvation 7 I Don t Care 8 Holy Water 9 God needs no Religion 10 Get me to another Planet 11 Pain in Me 12 Time is right for us 13 Your Burden
