ULTIMA NECAT

Band:VENTURA
Album:ULTIMA NECAT
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

VENTURA Lausanne, SWITZERLAND Founded in 2003, VENTURA is a rock trio mainly inspired by the nineties. Among their influences, you may cite Superchunk, HUM, Failure, Shellac maybe a touch of Hot Snakes and why not a little Nirvana.

VENTURA have released numerous splits, a debut record called "Pa Capona" (Get A Life!) in 2006, a second one, "We Recruit" (Africantape) in 2010, year that also saw them collaborating with David Yow (Scratch Acid, The Jesus Lizard, QUI) for a seven inch single (Africantape, Lausanne Records).

VENTURA has toured Switzerland, Germany and France (and survived it). The new album, "Ultima Necat", was once again recorded by Serge Morattel (Brazen, Knut, Tantrum) at his RecStudio in Geneva in October 2012, and was mastered at Golden Mastering in January 2013. This is a darker and heavier record than its predecessor but manages to preserve its melodic side. A stormy record which nevertheless contains sunny intervals.

PAPIER TIGRE

Band:PAPIER TIGRE
Album:PAPIER TIGRE
Label:African Tape
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

God has given us 2 new PAPIER TIGRE tracks. Playing with the end of the world, he decided to concentrate on what was truly important : this 7-inch.

The A-side, "Personal Belongings" strikes immediately like an instant classic, a powerful pulse keeps the blood flowing, with the guitar’s interplay giving the directions, the vocal providing the heartbeat. The band’s sound is immediately recognizable and the craftsmanship is here mastered, giving soul, energy and intelligence to a track you want to listen to again and again... The AA-side, "The difficult age" is a rollercoaster ride. Starting off with harsh layers of guitars, the song quickly moves on to moving atmosphere. Tension is lingering until it bursts out in the choruses. Demons are in the details, so they say. There are a couple here and there and everywhere on this song.

PAPIER TIGRE’s first release on Chicago’s own Sick Room records - EU release by Africantape.

SHANGHAI VOID

Band:STALIN GARDENS
Album:SHANGHAI VOID
Label:METAL POSTCARD
Format:CD
Genre:Post Punk

Stalin Gardens are a younger band on the scene made of Chinese and French musicians who are dedicated to the no wave style and formed via a mutual love of the group Swans. After a rocky start trying to settle a full line lineup, they played memorable shows at the Maybe Mars anniversary show and with Mr Ray at Yuyintang for Wooozy. Now they have recorded a debut album at Shanghai's Post Tape with Brad Ferguson producing. The album is available for listening at their Douban ahead of traditional release. It is called Shanghai Void and is notable to me for reflecting both the China scene influences and life in the city itself, not to mention some excellent turns of phrase and an excellent recording of fan favourite / child cancer epic Osteosarcoma.

"China’s Stalin Gardens have a pretty impenetrable and tortured post-punk album on their hands with Shanghai Void. The band rips through the nine tracks on this new album with the dissonant, narrated swagger of the Fall and the artistically informed depression of Joy Division". Needle Drop.com 

"No wave and experimental acts such as SPK or The Birthday Party are good pointers". Time Out

 

 

EROTIC MARKET

Band:EROTIC MARKET
Album:EROTIC MARKET
Label:JARRING EFFECTS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Dance/Electronica

Erotic Market is a white neon light in the dark. At first, the eye is aggressively drawn in; then it gets used to the luminous imprint, which is so powerful that, even with eyes closed, it’s the only thing that can be seen. Erotic Market is fluorescent, saturated, dynamic and clashing. It’s as greasy and unsubtle as a tray of fish and chips

Elle : "Original & unique, we bet that Erotic Market will soon get people talking about them".

 

 

LUCIFER TEMPLI

Band:MAGISTER TEMPLI
Album:LUCIFER TEMPLI
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Magister Templi is a Norwegian Heavy Metal band, characterized by a strong lyrical imprint inspired by Western mysticism, ritual magic and alchemy. The band was founded in 2008 by singer Abraxas and Guitarist Baphomet, and released a digital demo (Lucifer/Restoration) in 2010. After finally recruiting a full set of five members in the fall of 2011, the band played some concerts in Norway supporting bands such as Fingernails (IT) and Pagan Altar (UK), as well as performing at the Inferno Festival 2012. In June 2012, they self-released their first EP titled “Iao Sabao”, with a concept mainly centered on the ancient Greek Bornless Ritual and the alchemical picture series Splendor Solis; shortly after, they signed a contract with Cruz del Sur Music.

Due to their lyrical content, they have been often associated to the occult/doom metal movement, but “Lucifer, Leviathan Logos” shows that Magister Templi is not a band that follows the actual retro-70s trend, but rather plays genuine, mainly NWOBHM-inspired heavy metal, embedded within the glorious practices of traditional doom metal. As even 1984-Mercyful Fate might be cited as another influence due to the numerous and sudden tempo-changes abundant in each and every song, no doubt that “Lucifer, Leviathan Logos” is going to be one of most praised released of 2013!

 

 

FREEDOMS REIGN.

Band:FREEDOMS REIGN
Album:FREEDOMS REIGN.
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

FREEDOM’S REIGN features FATES WARNING's original guitarist and founding member Victor Arduini, and marking his comeback to the Metal world since he left FATES WARNING after the release of The Spectre Within in 1985. Keeping his original, charismatic and unmistakable guitar-style untouched, Arduini returns under the spotlights with fresh enthusiasm and dedication, producing a notable effort of true American-styled heavy metal with a classic Ozzy/Sabbath's flavor. The idea behind the band's formation was to simply make some great music that returned the musicians involved to their roots and could deliver on their commitment to making some Old School Metal that would be relevant in today's scene. Expect nothing less than a true return to heavy, hard and driving Old School Metal.

 

 

RITUAL DEATH METAL

Band:DEATHCHAIN
Album:RITUAL DEATH METAL
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Finnish combo Deathchain have finished their sixth album "Ritual Death Metal", which is set for release on Svart Records on April 5th. Keeping up with the band’s tradition to include the word ‘death’ or ‘dead’ in their titles, their name of their sixth fulllength alone ‘Ritual Death Metal’ feels like a warning. In the wake of an already impressive ‘Death Gods’ three years ago, this new offering to the Ancients been recorded last summer with Swedish wünderkid Tore Stjerna in Stockholm in his worldrenowned Necromorbus studio where most famously Watain but also Ondskapt, Funeral Mist and many others have sworn a pact with the Great Horned One. Guest starring on the album is one LG Petrov from Entombed, who provides vocals for the track "Like Worms Upon The Lands". Cover art is by Babalon Graphics, other layout work by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight13 Media.

As eclectic as the label is, Svart Records have a strong foundation in death metal, having reissued albums by vintage acts like Abhorrence, Xysma and the resuscitated Convulse. However, Deathchain is the first contemporary death metal band operating on the label. Each member sports an impressive curriculum vitae of musical misbehaviours that reads like a who’s who of the Finnish extreme metal scene (Forgotten Horror, Demilich, Deathbound, Ajattara, and so on), and the band's two guitarists are already part of the Svart family with Jess and The Ancient Ones. But it’s the sheer intensity of its music that has put Deathchain at the top of the foodchain!
