VULNER

Band:NENT, THE
Album:VULNER
Label:cyclic law
Format:LP
Genre:AMBIENT/RITUAL

We welcome Berlin based Italian Vince Gagliardi and his audiovisual project The Nent, who’s dream-like aesthetic is rooted in a passion for broken ambient textures, eerie field recordings and poignant percussive elements. His debut album „Vulner“ (mastered by Dadub Studio) offers 3 long progressions with explosive culminations. Mostly composed with field recordings and samples collected over the last sixteen years, all with a deep personal meaning. All tracks are interconnected and draw a path from innocence, to greed up to the inevitable extinguishment over time. The title “Vulner“ defines a feeling of compassion to this cycle humans are vulnerably exposed to. His praised live performances infuse dark ritual rhythms and surreal visual imagery, constantly challenging abstract connections in the perceiver’s mind.  
LP Edition of 300 copies with matt laminated 3mm slvee, black inner sleeve. 3 Tracks. Running Time 25:42 

 

 

MITHRA

Band:Ager Sonus
Album:MITHRA
Label:Cryo Chamber
Format:CD
Genre:DARK AMBIENT/DRONE/NEOCLASSICAL

On this atmospheric ambient album Ager Sonus takes us back in time as we join the Cult of Mithras.   
"The cinnamon scented scroll lies perfectly aligned on your silken bed sheet, the black seal of a lion's head catches your gasp as it stares you down. The test has begun!   
You stumble through the dark, your path a reflection of moonlight periodically piercing the clouds. Bare feet scrape rain soaked ground, the smell of wet earth and blood fills your exhausted breath. A faint glow signals you in the distance. Is this the beckoning you have been waiting for?"   
The Roman deity “Mithras” appears in historical records of the late 1st century A.D., and disappears from it in the late 4th century A.D. Unlike the major mythological figures of Graeco-Roman religion no ancient source preserves the mythology of the god. All the information is therefore derived from depictions on monuments, and the limited mentions of the cult in literary sources.   
The ancient cult of “Mithras” were especially popular among the Roman military who were intrigued by its mysteries. Worshippers of Mithras met in underground temples, now called “Mithraea”, which survived (to this day) in large numbers. The cult is rumored to have had its centre in Rome and was popular throughout the western half of the empire, as far south as Roman Africa and Numidia, as far north as Roman Britain and to a lesser extent in Roman Syria in the east.  

 

 

EVANGELIKON

Band:METATRON OMEGA
Album:EVANGELIKON
Label:Cryo Chamber
Format:CD
Genre:DARK AMBIENT/DRONE/NEOCLASSICAL

Metatron Omega presents us his fourth album on Cryo Chamber, Evangelikon. Under the ever-watching Eye of the distant, yet omnipresent cosmic force, Man has been growing and constructing his own symbols of himself and of the Ages. The great Mover is slowly pushing the grand mechanism of time and space, altogether with the boundaries of Universe, toward a greater step of knowing.  And look: a tri fold nature of Man has been exposed and put under a trial. His body, his mind and his spirit had come under the shining ray of Revelation, where there are no secrets. Within the boundless, deep, architecture of cosmic monastery of the Universe, one seeks his destiny and perceives the journey he is upon, with his eyes transfixed by the boundless silhouette of the great Kosmokrator, reigning supreme at the Throne of Life. The gates are open, and the priests of Evangelikon have begun their mass.   
Recommended for fans of dark choir and ancient temples

TIMES OF OBSCENE EVIL AND WILD DARING

Band:SMOULDER
Album:TIMES OF OBSCENE EVIL AND WILD DARING
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:EPIC DOOM METAL

TRACKLIST Cardinals Folly: 1. Ilian of Garathorm 2. The Swordwoman 3. Bastard Steel 4. Voyage of the Sunchaser 5. Shadowy Sisterhood 6. The Black God s Kiss First full-length from firebrand Canadian quintet that escapes into realms of fantasy, glory and heroism, all under the banner of epic doom and power metal! Buoyed by the success of their The Sword Woman demo comes Smoulder, a Canadian epic doom/power metal quintet who combines obscure metal savvy with brilliant storytelling on their first full-length, Times of Obscene Evil and Wild Daring. An impromptu jam session at a house party was all it took to light the fire under Canadian metal aficionados Sarah Ann and Shon Vincent. The two shared a fondness for doom bands such as Reverend Bizarre, Lamp of Thoth and Solitude Aeternus, utilizing this synchronicity to throw around ideas that while crude, were the foundation for what was to come. Originally, Sarah was on drums; Vincent on guitar and vocals, resulting in the name Smoulder, as in smouldering ruins. After doing the perfunctory check on Metal Archives to ensure the name wasn t taken, Smoulder was forged in 2013. Smoulder s first few years was slow-going, though, as the two struggled to find reliable bandmates in their hometown of Calgary. The pair relocated to Toronto in 2017 and came to the realization Sarah would be better off singing and Vincent should concentrate solely on guitar. Faced with the high costs of a rehearsal room and delaying the band for another year so they could afford space, Sarah and Vincent reached across the border to Illinois to secure the services of Collin Wolf (guitar) and Kevin Hester (drums). Shortly thereafter, Smoulder trekked into the studio to record their debut 2018 demo, The Sword Woman. The Sword Woman was released by Hoove Child Records on a limited run of 100 copies. The demo quickly sold-out, prompting the band and label to push the run to 150 which sold out just as quickly. Soon, the label had no choice but to press a 300 run of the demo to vinyl. Smoulder (who are completed by bassist Adam Blake) eventually caught the eye of Cruz Del Sur Music. Pen now put to paper, the band got to work on its first full-length, Times of Obscene Evil and Wild Daring. Recorded throughout 2018 at Chicago s Swift Road Studios and Toronto s Lincoln County Social Club, Times of Obscene Evil and Wild Daring was mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Eternal Champion, Sumerlands). Artwork is courtesy of iconic fantasy painter Michael Whelan (Cirith Ungol). Featuring six songs of climatic and challenging epic doom crossed with elements of power metal, Times of Obscene Evil... is the result of countless songwriting sessions and intercontinental file-sharing. With lyrics provoking the imagination while testing the mind, Smoulder emboldens the listener with literary and fantasy-driven stories on cuts like the nine-minute epic The Black God s Kiss, power metal-ripper Bastard Steel and Shadowy Sisterhood, Smoulder s ode to Iron Maiden s immortal Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

Band:L'ACEPHALE
Album:L'ACEPHALE (RED VINYL)
Label:Eisenwald
Format:2LP
Genre:ATMOSPHERIC/AVANTGARDE BLACK METAL

Keeping within the spirit of the headless cult, the always evolving and self-defining project of Set Sothis Nox La now sets out to unleash their new and self-titled album; ten years after their last full length. The tracks on this titanous, 74-minute magnum opus offer a varied, yet focused, listen with copious tension. While staying committed to their extreme metal roots and historical, literary themes, L'Acéphale incorporates and shines brightly with elements of monumental dark folk, spoken word, black metal, and almost martial artforms. On seven epic-length tracks, spiraling with monolithic auras and blasting with furious whirlwinds, L'Acéphale appears at once aloof, yet savage with wild abandon, while at times delicate, but still unbreakable. L' Acéphale is as avant-garde as you can get, while raging with blistering and cacophonous ferocity. Their full-lengths, have all been remarkable... L'Acéphale are set to plunge Roadburn 2019 into a terrifying void of darkness! - Roadburn Festival TRACKLIST 1.Sovereignty: (Dieu Die Sonne stirbt Sovereignty) 2.Gloria in Excelsis Mihi 3.Runenberg 4.Hark! The Battle Cry is Ringing! 5.Last Will 6.Sleep 7.Winternacht
