ELEGY

Band:DEAD TO A DYING WORLD
Album:ELEGY
Label:Profound Lore
Format:2LP
Genre:DARK METAL

Texas based elemental dark metal ensemble Dead To A Dying World have completed work on their poignant new epoch, Elegy. Following up 2015's ambitious Litany, this latest sees the septet take their creative spirit to a new apotheosis, resulting in the collective's most focused and moving opus yet. The band craft their vast aural landscape with a flourish consisting of seamless sonic textures guided by apocalyptic dark metal, doom, and epic cinematic post rock, consisting of three monolithic central tracks reinforced by three stirring interval segments. Melodic surges thrive throughout the album's discourse, whether through the more aggressive post-black metal parts or the more melancholic parts. The dual vocal projection of Mike Yeager and Heidi Moore continues to serve as a defining staple, while the band continue to expand their instrumentation, solidified even more through Eva Vonne's viola which continues to bridge and become a central element, as well as including outer-sound instruments like expanded experimental percussion, hurdy gurdy, hammond organ / piano, and concert bass. Once again produced by Billy Anderson, this being one of the acclaimed producer's most riveting productions he's done in recent times, the band also welcomes back a small cast of guest musicians. Featuring guest appearances by Thor Harris (ex-Swans) on four tracks alone, along with guest vocals by Jarboe (ex-Swans), Dylan Desmond (Bell Witch), and Emil Rapstine (The Angelus), the contributions from the new contingent of guests helps elevate the narrative of Elegy to a new plateau.

SLIT THROAT REQUIEM

Band:GARDSGHASTR
Album:SLIT THROAT REQUIEM
Label:Profound Lore
Format:2LP
Genre:Black Metal

GARDSGHASTR a new black metal entity created by the forces comprised of prolific members culled from elite black metal artists Bekëth Nexëhmü and Chaos Moon unleash their debut album Slit Throat Requiem (out on April 12 on CD/2LP/Digital), an epic bewitching overwhelming symphonic black metal maelstrom that harkens back to the glory of the unparalleled Norwegian black metal scene of the 90s. Manifesting in a grandiloquent yet strident and powerful sound with a production that mirrors and ensnares the textures that were once produced from the confines of Greighallen Studios back in the ancient times, Slit Throat Requiem is a relentless black metal bombardment that flourishes through an overbearing wall-of-sound awash on dark ominous unmerciful atmosphere. Heavily orchestral on all fronts, from the ambient sound-generating guitar assault, the pounding battery, glorious sounding keyboards, and the piercing vocal incantations spewed forth, Slit Throat Requiem emerges as a black metal attestation to the genre s true spirit and manifesting flame. A testimony compulsory in today s black metal landscape. TRACK LISTING: 1. Promethean Flame, 2. Of Crimson Eyes, 3. Slit Throat Requiem, 4. Journey Through Stagnant Time and Misery, 5. Beasts of Horn and Wing, 6. Diabolical Reverence, 7. Unfurl the Profane Wisdom, 8. Outro

SABLES

Band:VAURA
Album:SABLES
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:PROGRESSIVE POST METAL

The ever-evolving quartet VAURA follows up their 2013 album The Missing almost six years later with Sables, their most refined and contemplative release yet. Introspective and somber, Sables finds the band shedding most of its post-metal heaviness in favor of experiments with brooding kosmische musik and the more avant-garde elements of new wave. Consisting of Josh Strawn (Azar Swan) on vocals, guitar and synthesizers, Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia) on guitar, Toby Driver (Kayo Dot) on bass, and Charlie Schmid (Tombs) on drums and electronics, VAURA engage ever more with their UK and German prog/art rock influences to grandiose and eerie effect. While still retaining the distinctive and specific style carved out on the band s first two releases ( Selenelion in 2010 and The Missing one year later) Sables is the all-vital third LP, a concise collection of meditative compositions on endings and extinctions. Brilliantly complemented by the mixing and production work of legendary UK producer Peter Walsh (Scott Walker, Peter Gabriel) VAURA have delivered their best sounding, most intricate and realized album yet. TRACK LISTING: 1. Espionage, 2. Zwischen, 3. The Lightless Ones, 4. The Ruins (Hymne), 5. No Guardians, 6. Eidolon, 7. Basilisk (The Infinite Corpse), 8. Sables

YODH LIVE AT ROADBURN 2018

Band:MIZMOR
Album:YODH LIVE AT ROADBURN 2018
Label:ROADBURN
Format:CD
Genre:DOOM

Mizmor: Yodh at Roadburn 2018 While we try not to gloat (too much), we at Roadburn pride ourselves on acting as musical necromancers and hermit whisperers. Bringing acts back from the dead or coaxing elusive artists out of hiding and into the live arena is always a joy for us. In the case of Oregonian doom artist Mizmor, we feel particularly fortunate. Mizmor s 2016 release Yodh was a high water mark for American doom in the past few years and the album release show at Migration Fest was the first and only Mizmor show to date. That changes at Roadburn 2018. We are humbled and delighted to announce that Mizmor will be rising from its slumber to perform Yodh live in its entirety for the first time as the sole European date in 2018. Those who have yet to hear this sprawling, monolithic album should take heed: this is far from your traditional metal act of any sort. With a tendency to rush from breakneck blasting to a hideous lurch, Mizmor leaves few subgenres of extreme metal unexplored in the scope of its all-consuming black/doom/death hybrid, and we know it s going to level the room when delivered in a live setting. When asked about the performance, Mizmor s sole member (on recording, at least) A.L.N. shared, We are beyond honored to be invited to Roadburn. To us, it s the most important festival in heavy music. It s been a dream of Mizmor s to perform here; like a pipe-dream though... something lofty and hopeful, seemingly unattainable and out of reach. We are eternally grateful for this opportunity. We re not sure if A.L.N. is the one who should be grateful, as the feeling is quite mutual. Expect to find us in the corner of the room with hands over our hearts as the sound swells around us during Mizmor s set. TRACKLIST Song 1 - Woe Regains My Substance Song 2 - A Semblance Waning Song 3 - The Serpent Eats its Tail Song 4 - Inertia, an Ill Compeller Song 5 - Bask in the Lingering

0160

Band:BLCKWVS
Album:0160
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:LP
Genre:DOOM/POST-METAL

it took more than 5 years for these guys to finish this project an very ambitious project, cause they wanted to do every song with a different singer they love. And as you can imagine, there were a lot of people keen doing it and just a few really did it. So, in the end you'll get the most promising BLCKWVS record you ever listened to. They still have their trademark monolithic super heavy doom sound, but spiced it a bit. The folowing people did their part and tell a spacey story from song to song. Toni (Union Of Sleep), Ed Fraser / Heads., Marc Grewe (Insidious Disease /orig.Morgoth), Munde (inotdance), Sarah (Black Vulpine), Siggi (Space Chaser), Lupus (Kadavar), Chris Dettmer and Milo (Rhonda).If you dig ISIS, Neurosis and alike, check these dudes as well!
