ABSENTIA

Band:BLAZE OF SORROW
Album:ABSENTIA
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CDD
Genre:ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL/POST METAL

Since 2007, BLAZE OF SORROW have been a veritable institution of Italian black metal, a scene and style too long overlooked. BLAZE OF SORROW both embody and defy the Italian idiom: medieval in its melancholy, nearly "romantic" in the literary sense of the word, but always revealing (and expanding upon) new shapes that keep their aesthetic surprising and ever singular. And that canon keeps growing through the years, with each new release a poignant piece in BLAZE OF SORROW's breathtaking mosaic. Now, with new guitarist A.S. and bassist V. joining the fold, BLAZE OF SORROW are set to release their most fully realized work to date: Absentia. Comprising seven songs in a taut 'n' tight 44 minutes, Absentia bursts into being with a brilliance that's blanching to behold. Undeniably emotional as ever, it's immediately apparent, however, that BLAZE OF SORROW are operating on a different wavelength on Absentia. Their windswept, cascading black metal is undoubtedly melancholic at heart - their moniker was well chosen, after all - but the range of textures and sensations across this sixth album encompass a far broader spectrum than most usually associated with "black metal." Laced within the deepest heart of Absentia is an aching nostalgia, a bittersweet wistfulness, and even rays of hope: doomed they may be, but delivered with an indeed-blazing passion that puts BLAZE OF SORROW into a rarefied field. Which is to say nothing of the utterly cathartic lead work here, buttressed by frequent detours into plaintive acoustic territory; shredded and shredding, these leads are immediately memorable and long-lasting, well after the final notes of Absentia have rung out across the soul... Put more directly, BLAZE OF SORROW aptly describe their inspirations as thus: "Day, Night, Darkness, Light. With music, we try to reach the highest peak of our feelings playing what we we're supposed to play. Our notes are captured from sadness, nature s beauty, water, fire, earth and wind. Let the shades embrace you thoughts, let the abyss caress your soul. We re what we are: a fire s breath in the infinity of the Sun." Behold the full glory of BLAZE OF SORROW and submerge thyself into total Absentia! TRACKLIST 1. Settimo requiem 2. Furia 3. Sonno d'eterno 4. Notturna 5. Hybris 6. Cupio dissolvi 7. Morte di un immortale

 

 

KAIKUJA

Band:ASHTAR
Album:KAIKUJA
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:DOOM METAL/BLACK METAL/STONER/SLUDGE

ASHTAR are a duo from Basel consisting of Nadine and Marko Lehtinen. In 2014 ASHTAR recorded their debut album, Ilmasaari, with Mäthe Imboden at the OSA Crypt Studio in Greifensee, Switzerland, with mixing handled by Esoteric s Greg Chandler in his Priory Recording Studio in Birmingham, UK. A year later the album saw release on multiple formats via multiple labels: CD by Czar of Crickets, vinyl by Throne Records, cassette by Antiq. Following its release Ilmasaari received excellent reviews worldwide, with special recognition coming from Tom Gabriel Fischer (Celtic Frost/Triptykon) in the German Deaf Forever magazine, where he listed the album in his personal top 10 for 2015. During the interim ASHTAR took to the stage, playing across Germany, Holland, France, Belgium, Austria and their home of Switzerland with appearances at such esteemed festivals as Under the Black Sun and Doom Over Vienna, underlining their crossover appeal to listeners of both black metal and doom and extreme metal enthusiasts in general. With that momentum patiently building, ASHTAR entered the studio at Helium Records in Basel with Ramon Vaca and began work on their second album during the summer of 2019. Bearing the title Kaikuja, it has at last arrived and eclipses the mountainous, miasmic might of their debut. Translated from Finnish as Echoes, Kaikuja is aptly titled, for its dense-yet-spacious soundwalls bear a rich n reverberating strength. Trace elements of black metal and doom exist once again, but are further spliced with the DNA of drone, sludge, and even post-rock, making for a heady (and HEAVY) brew that s seemingly served up with ease by ASHTAR. And even more so than the debut, for a band that s merely a duo, these five epic-length songs emit an almost-impossible density, bewitchingly revealing new layers with each listen. And at nearly 40 minutes, the landscape ASHTAR paint here is far more vast than that compact runtime suggests. TRACKLIST 1. Aeolus 2. Between Furious Clouds 3. Bloodstones 4. The Closing 5. (She is) Awakening
