FANTASMA NERA

Band:KINGS DESTROY
Album:FANTASMA NERA
Label:SVART
Format:LP
Genre:DOOM

Limited vinyl with bonus 7 inch. Following what seemed to be a definitive statement with their third, self-titled album and tours in the US, Europe, and Australia and New Zealand, New York's Kings Destroy have stepped back and taken on their core identity as a band. Challenging each other every step of the way, they enlisted producer David Bottrill (Tool, King Crimson, Stone Sour), and after paring down their approach and their songwriting to the most crucial elements, they crafted Fantasma Nera, an album that presents a wider creative breadth than anything they ve done before. Fantasma Nera isn t just the album Kings Destroy wanted to make; it s where they took on outside expectation what others thought and confronted their own ideas about who they could be as a band. Every KD LP has been different from the one before, but Fantasma Nera brazenly reshapes Kings Destroy as a group, and in confronting what seemed to be their own limitations, the band found just one more obstacle to be surpassed in their continuous process of becoming.

SYNTHEOSIS

Band:WASTE OF SPACE ORCHESTRA
Album:SYNTHEOSIS
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:COSMIC METAL

The epic collaboration between Oranssi Pazuzu and Dark Buddha Rising The awe-inspiring Finnish metallic psychedelicists Oranssi Pazuzu and their Tampere cohorts Dark Buddha Rising, known for their grandiose slug-paced ritualist doom metal, have recorded a new album, which will be released on Svart Records on April 5th, 2019. The amalgam of these two entities is melted as one on Syntheosis, to be released under the moniker Waste of Space Orchestra. Syntheosis began as a commissioned piece for Roadburn Festival. The fest, which began as a smallscale gathering of stoner rock addicts has evolved over the years into a four-day celebration of heavy music in all of its possible forms and interpretations, from riffworship to punishing soundscapes and beyond. The list of Roadburn performers over the years is a veritable who s who of underground heavy culture, with everyone from Neurosis and Sleep to Godflesh having performed at the event. Syntheosis the commissioned piece was prepared at the request of the festival and performed there in April 2018 in front of over 3000 people. Syntheosis the album is not a live recording but a carefully prepared studio interpretation, on which the ten musicians worked over the spring and summer of 2018. The album was recorded and mixed by Julius Mauranen, who also worked on Oranssi Pazuzu s Värähtelijä. The album can be digested as a challenging, engaging psych metal record or as a dimension-spanning one-hour performance consisting of nine parts. The work recounts a story of three beings and their deep search for knowledge.

NOTHING IS ORDINARY

Band:OMNIA OPERA
Album:NOTHING IS ORDINARY
Label:SOUND EFFECT
Format:3LP
Genre:PSYCH ROCK/ACID ROCK

There surely aren’t many bands that can lay claim to being the primary (or, indeed, only) exponents of an entire genre – but psychedelic legends Omnia Opera can, because, well, they invented it. Back in the early 1980’s, when the GB free festival scene was still some years from its zenith, and the second wave of psychedelic bands that would accompany it were still just a metaphorical blotter on the tongues of their founding members, some friends from Kidderminster, UK hit upon the idea of ‘plasma rock’. Taking elements of a variety of mind-expanding and progressive music, they distilled them into a uniquely potent and energetic style. Incorporating searing punk-edged acid rock with cutting-edge interstellar synthesis & sampling, and largely staying away from the meandering jams that had mostly taken over the psychedelic form, they preferred instead well-observed politically-edged, socially-conscious and cosmically-inclined lyrics alongside powerful arrangements. Over the next ten years or so, the band would release several albums – initially on cassette only, recorded and distributed by themselves, and selling out time and time again, and later on CD & vinyl courtesy of the legendary Delerium Records (home, at the time, for Steven Wilson’s Porcupine Tree project amongst others). Then, just as it looked as if the band might be making progress into a wider awareness, they split up.Fast-forward to 2006, and the band decided to get together to do a 20th anniversary gig…one thing led to another, and for the next four years they toiled ceaselessly writing and recording what was to become their magnum opus, the album ‘Nothing is Ordinary’. Originally self-released as a double CD to a rapturous reception, it is only now that Greek psych label Sound-Effect Records, great fans of the band themselves, have got behind a mammoth triplevinyl edition. Meticulously remastered for vinyl by Mark Cawthra at The Infallible Ear, and with packaging to match the original CD release (a stunning triplegatefold sleeve, with printed inserts to house the vinyl), no expense or trouble has been spared to make this limited edition vinyl an absolute essential for any lover of psychedelic music or acid rock.

BEWILDERED JANE

Band:HONEY POT, THE
Album:BEWILDERED JANE
Label:MEGA DODO
Format:LP
Genre:PSYCH

The Honey Pot play a blend of Sixties psych that has its boots in the past but its head in the future, they draw on that unique English inheritance of the surreal and the strange, but are not afraid to indulge in an American West-Coast style adventure when the mood takes them. Bewildered Jane is their forth long-player, fifth if you include their recent compilation of odds and sods. Like all good bands, they are on a journey. This time out their sonic palette has taken on a deeper and richer hue. The harmonies are that little bit richer. The sound that little bit fuller. The mood that little bit darker. Their successful combination of elements drawn from English and American psychedelia has created their own unique take on the genre. There are remnants enough of what fans would expect to keep them happy from a new Honey Pot album and sufficient experimentation to keep them interested.

UPON VELEATUR

Album:UPON VELEATUR
Label:Sunbeam
Format:CD
Genre:Folk

"Fragile folk-rock of the highest order. This is really an excellent album, one of the finest acid folk items, and certainly a record that deserves more attention" www.lysergia.com "Super rare Canadian loner folk album from 1972 with beautiful sweeping orchestration and some tasty West Coast guitar breaks. With a feel that recalls Nick Drake, Axel rod-style arrangements and a fragile, haunted quality, this lost gem has to be heard to be believed" - Freak Emporium "Stoned is the way of Velveatur's walk, and the odd lash of stinging guitar is sure to keep you on your toes. All who hear this album fall under its charm" www.soulstrut.com Often compared to the work of Nick Drake, Upon Velveatur is a dense and mysterious French Canadian folk-psych suite, featuring beautiful melodies, lush orchestration and scorching electric guitar. Barely circulated on its original release in 1972, it has gathered a major cult following and is now making its first appearance on CD, complete with five bonus tracks, rare photographs and sleevenotes by the enigmatic M. Rodier himself. Track listing 1. Listen To These Chords I Play (Celeste) 2. My Spirit s Calling 3. Am I Supposed To Let It By Again? (Above The Covers) 4. The Key 5. While My Castle s Burning 6. You Don t Know What It s Like 7. Just Fine 8. Let s See Some Happyness Bonus Tracks 9. Easy Song 10. L Herbe 11. Tu Viendras 12. Have You? 13. Overseer

Band:TWINK
Album:10,000 WORDS IN A CARDBOARD BOX
Label:MISTY LANE
Format:VINYL 45- limited edition
Genre:Folk

A truly legendary name in London’s Sixties and Seventies Psychedelic scene, TWINK - a.k.a. John Alder – has been a member of The Pink Fairies, The Pretty Things and Tomorrow, before having a solo career that lasts to this very day. His most know song is probably “10,000 Words In A Cardbord Box”, now released as a single vinyl 45 rpm, backed with Zion De Gallier’s Mellotron-driven “Geraldine”, with Twink on drums. The A-side is a neat and authentic version, recorded in 1999 in LA at Westwood Studios, featuring members of The Brian Jones Massacre and Smallstone, the latter serving at that time as Twink’s backing band and performing live songs from his legendary Think Pink album. The flip side, “Geraldine”, is an enjoyable Kinksy number, recorded at Abbey Road Studios in 1968, graced by Mark Wirtz ‘ Popsike production. Zion De Gallier was in fact Douglas Robert Ord, lead singer of Colchester band’ The Deep Beats, as well as The Fairies. This limited edition of 300 numbered copies comes with an interview insert and a nice artwork by Alessandra Monoriti. An instant-collector number for sure!

Band:MODS, THE
Album:I GIVE YOU AN INCH b/w YOU'VE GOT ANOTHER
Label:MISTY LANE
Format:VINYL 45- VERY LIMITED
Genre:SIXTIES GARAGE PUNK

Since its first apparition on the infamous “Chosen Few” compilation album way back in 1983, the Mods Garage anthem “I Give You An Inch (And You Take A Mile)” has been included in the Garage Punk Hall Of Fame as one of the prime example of the so called Sixties Punk, “a snarling, attitude-laden supreme put down”, to quote Tim Warren, the Crypt Records oncho, the man that, along with Greg Shaw Of Bomp!/Vox Records before him, has been a true force behind the resurrection of the genre in its purest and crudest form. The Mods were thee classic Garage group that cut only one single in 1966 before disappearing into the mist of time. Since the inclusion of both sides of their solely record in other compilations like the well known “Back From The Grave” the band has gained an incredible following. Its equally cool flip side “You’ve Got Another Think Coming” is another winner and both sides are perfect movers for a Sixties Garage DJ set! Finally in 2003 one of the former member of the band, bassist Larry Smith turned up with the full story and an indepth interview came out on Misty Lane Magazine. A good decade on and this single finally sees a top-fidelity reissue. Liner notes by Tim Warren, a fantastic mastering thanks to Mark Taylor studio and a picture sleeve that was never pressed in its original form complete the whole, along with a 4 pages reprint of the Misty Lane 18 interview. A labour of true love for lovers of the underground Sixties Garage sounds, limited to 300 numbered copies only. Grab yours now!

 

 

DRONECAINE

Band:OPIUM EYES OF NICO
Album:DRONECAINE
Label:SOUND EFFECT
Format:LP
Genre:PSYCH ROCK/AVANT ROCK

First physical release for "Dronecaine", the Opium Eyes Of Nico full album! Released on limited edition vinyl via Sound Effect Records of Athens, this is a psychedelic masterpiece straight from the future! Featuring drone renditions of Beatles and Syd Barrett tracks. Opium Eyes of Nico is a psychedelic project with two persons - Artyom Yegorov and Viktoria Perova (both play in Cosmic Letdown at the same time). The history of Opium Eyes of Nico began in year of 2009 when Artyom just started to recording music. “I had to came up with the name for my home recording sessions, - says Artyom. - Exactly at that time i was addicted (listening) to Nico. One day i stumbled upon a James Young interview about Nico in which he characterized her as follows: “She had a heavy heart. And an opium eyes”. So there was the name. And a few recordings”. It was an intimate music of a one person. Artyom was trying to play psychedelic music, to record demos and covers of his influences and to develop his own style in the genre of psychedelia. After that the initial idea of the project was frozen because somehow it transformed in completely different band, Cosmic Letdown. Everything changed after Viktoria joined Artem in 2014. She shared the same passion in music and had identical tastes in it. The idea of a revival was in the air after Viktoria draw a pencil logo of Opium Eyes of Nico just for fun. It led to a series of drone-like jamming sessions in C between recording first and second Cosmic Letdown albums. Later Artyom got deeper into the concept of an album, jams started to take a shape, became a songs one by one, got a richer sound palette. And Viktoria started to develop artwork for the future Dronecaine and the whole aesthetics behind that phenomenon. She joined to the sound production with Artyom and performed as a singer on two songs. “Dronecaine was recorded in the summer of 2014 like this: we were just recording tracks at our pleasure and suddenly (as if by magic) was born the concept of a drone album, which did not fit in Cosmic Letdown. So it was decided to revive Opium Eyes of Nico and to make an album of these tracks and to name it Dronecaine. The thing of this album is that almost all the guitars are tuned in the way to be in tune with sitar. In addition to everything we decided to make two covers of the songs we love in the same sitar-esque Indian way”. The first single was released in October 2014, in November 2014 it was formed the home label based on the name of the project - Opium Eyes Records and the Dronecaine was released on it in February 2015. It can be said that Opium Eyes of Nico completely preferred detached psychedelic sound in comparison with Cosmic Letdown and an outsider philosophy.

 

 

DOT ON THE MAP

Band:ROBERT SIN & THE HUCKLEBERRIES
Album:DOT ON THE MAP
Label:PRIVATE PRESS
Format:CD
Genre:AMERICANA

If long nights, soul searching, and ruminating thoughts produced sound it would be “Dot On The Map”. Robert Sin’s second album concludes the “Huckleberries” era in the best way possible. Sensitive, heartbreaking, and well crafted lyrics unfold like chapters of a novel, focusing on love, loss, mortality, and the great challenges of our times. The singer/songwriter’s acoustic guitar is one of the record’s main focal points, which the Huckleberries beautifully frame and enrich. “Dot on the map” is 26 year old Robert Sin’s third album. His debut was the EP “Love & Other Misdemeanors”, and it was followed by his first full length album with the Huckleberries “And The Ghosts In Between”, which was enthusiastically received by critics and fans alike. Robert Sin started playing the piano at the age of six and the guitar around the age of 14. He started writing and recording songs at the age of 15 in his bedroom in Arta, a Greek Midwestern city.

Sonora Sunrise is a Russian band from Altai. Altai is a sacred land of ancient mountains that are still keeping secrets and old shamanic rites.

This is why the recording sounds live--a large part of it are improvisation and the flight of imagination. Turn on this record, relax in a comfortable armchair, and start your mystic trip through a canyon, to a place at the edge of the desert where a sunrise will meet you.

POSTHUMOUS HUMILIATION

Band:PISSGRAVE
Album:POSTHUMOUS HUMILIATION
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Philadelphia s PISSGRAVE, one of the rawest, most depraved, immoral, and violent bands in present-day death metal follow up their 2015 Suicidal Euphoria debut LP with their new sophomore LP Posthumous Humiliation , an album even more dark, surreal, violent, and perverted than its infamous predecessor. One again produced by Arthur Rizk, Posthumous Humiliation will cement PISSGRAVE s reign in America s underground death metal scene as not only one of the most sadistic death metal bands today but also one of the most singular bands in the genre (with the band s live show attesting to such a claim respectively). Where PISSGRAVE s slab of nauseating death metal terror is unlike anything going on in the scene today, pushing the sonic thresholds of the genre to new vomit-inducing levels. Posthumous Humiliation ultimately is a disturbing and intense listen, a sonic skullfucking devoid of amusement and pleasure and a celebration of pure torment and misery. TRACK LISTING: 1. Euthanasia, 2. Canticle Of Ripping Flesh, 3. Funeral Inversion, 4. Catacombs Of Putrid Chambers, 5. Into The Deceased, 6. Posthumous Humiliation, 7. Emaciated, 8. Celebratory Defilement, 9.

LAMENT

Band:TOTALED
Album:LAMENT
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:BLACKENED HARDCORE

Exhaling the ashes from acrimony, TOTALED materialized in 2017 and recorded its ferociously blackened-hardcore debut album Lament . While lyrically ruminating in the abstract emptiness of an impervious void and grappling with paradoxical duality, the audial gloom of Lament conjures sorrowing burial strings that furiously discharge into an onslaught of punishing resonance wrought with crushing despair, depression, and scavenging hopelessness. Pummelling blasts and d-beats pound into peripherally orbiting shadows of the pixelated black, beneath the pulverizing density of nihilistic bass distortion in a mournful offering of somber funeral strains; The digested celestial nothingness of the eaten, frozen in dimensions of cyclical nooses and gnawing bacterial ether. Conceived incarnations of sorrowful mists from the harvest - Bereaving the morbid light in which we suffer. TRACK LISTING: 1. Deplete, 2. As Below, 3. Eclipsed, 4. Transience, 5. Hypnosis, 6. Desolate, 7. Ominus, 8. Bereft

YOUNG AND COOL

Band:WOAHNOWS
Album:YOUNG AND COOL
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:CD
Genre:POWER POP/INDIE/PUNK

Second full length from Bristol power pop trio Woahnows! It s been three years since the release of their last album Understanding and Everything Else (on Big Scary Monsters) and after 36 months of reflection, frontperson Tim Rowing-Parker s relationship with music and with themselves has shifted. Distancing themselves from a life of constant touring, they ve spent the past few years making a new home. It s a refreshing new stance that filters throughout Young and Cool. It s an album that explores our relationships with those around us, how we can care so strongly for our friends, for our lovers but that ultimately no one belongs to anyone. Just because I love you, doesn t mean you owe me anything, Tim adds. Friendship can be romantic, love and people can choose any or no gender. These songs are not a boy singing about a girl. They are about me worrying about people I love. Young and Cool is a collection of soulful pop jams with a punk heart that help alleviate the worry of fitting in. We're not young or cool at all, they add. When you think about it, no one's cool. TRACK LISTING 1. Something To Regret 2. World Explodes 3. No One Else 4. Your Dreams 5. Hippy Shit 6. I Know I Knooow 7. ...and Breathe 8. Dipping Out 9. You Explaining 10. Skin Peels 11. Whatever Works 12. Cold

Band:MOUNT SHRINE
Album:GHOSTS ON BROKEN PAVEMENT
Label:Cryo Chamber
Format:CD
Genre:DARK AMBIENT/AMBIENT/DRONE/SPACE

Mount Shrine serves us his 2nd solo album on Cryo Chamber. A deep and meditative journey set both inside and outside an Urban setting. "The radio transmissions led you here, a city of memories past and passed. The streets lie silent as you watch from above the high rise. A twirling mountain casts a deafening shadow over this place. Here between the world of life and death you are but a tiny spec of dust on the shoulder of giants, a world built by the dreamers that came before you. The sleepers drift here, trapped in glitching time loops that crackle when reset." Ghosts on Broken Pavement is an album that takes us back to the safe embrace of childhood dreams. For lovers of deep subs, airy field recordings and harmonic drones this album is as atmospheric as it is beautiful. Deep drones, sweeping atmospheres and a mysterious setting creates an immersive setting for this sci-fi journey. Track Listing: 1. Gray-Tinged Suburbs 10:24 2. Underpass 09:16 3. Held Breeze 06:05 4. Inescapable Rain 07:16 5. Outsider Station 13:53 6. Empty Slopes 09:20

Album:ARCTIC GATES
Label:Cryo Chamber
Format:CD
Genre:DARK AMBIENT/AMBIENT/DRONE

Overview: Ugasanie's cold drones meets Dronny Darko's meticulous sound design on this dark and brooding arctic album. Two weeks you've been scouring the arctic sea. No sun since you reached the north, the dark water a constant fractured mirror that meets the universe above and pulls you into its black fold. Everything points to "it" resting beneath the ice, in a slumber of centuries. Three weeks, now on land, you're getting close. Down here beneath the ice you feel disconnected from the world, like you are leaving the present as you spelunk into the past. You snap another glow stick and throw it down the ice shaft, the light strobes off crystalline walls as it reveals an ancient structure below. The Arctic Gates. For lovers of cold atmospheres and a feeling of isolation. Track Listing: 1. Behind the North Wind 04:05 2. Wreck 06:54 3. An Object 08:04 4. 80T-54'08.8N 49T-51'38.3E 05:33 5.

ALIVE WITH SCARS

Band:FLOWERS FOR BODYSNATCHERS
Album:ALIVE WITH SCARS
Label:Cryo Chamber
Format:CD
Genre:AMBIENT/NEO CLASSICAL

Flowers for Bodysnatchers is back with a versatile dark ambient album blending multiple genre elements. Alive With Scars is an album that explores the life long struggle of living with Multiple Sclerosis. MS is an autoimmune disease where the body's own immune system attacks and destroys healthy tissue, in the case of MS, the healthy tissue is myelin, the protein that insulates the nerves in the spinal cord, brain and optic nerve gradually destroying the myelin that coats the central nervous system. Your body slowly beings wasting from the inside out by the subversion of its own central nervous system. A body that with the passing of time will waste and wither to its own unique sonnet of pain and torment. I personally have lived with MS for almost 10 years and, this album has been an on again, off again affair for almost as long. Did I even want to do this? Will people understand it? It has been a difficult subject to approach and express musically. Yet I found I had been subconsciously doing it all along. From the formidably depressing album Aokigahara to the melancholic spitefulness of Love Like Blood. The narratives represented in these albums were backed by the way my MS affected me and the people around me. It's a long journey and Alive With Scars continues both the physical and emotional process of living life, trying to keep one step ahead of it and, trying to say sorry for the times I got things terribly wrong. - Duncan Track Listing: 1. A Heart Less Darkened 08:18 2. Looking For Bernard Herrmann 08:22 3. Shiraz And Suicide 03:41 4. Vertigo 05:54 5. Blood In Her Mouth - Rain On Her Birthday 04:36 6. Human Demon 07:45 7. The Scar Entombed 05:10 8. And Then, Silence 06:53 9. We Are Like We Never Were 09:55

 

 

SPLIT

Band:CARDINALS FOLLY/LUCIFER'S FALL
Album:SPLIT
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:DOOM METAL

The doom bell tolls twice as Finland s Cardinals Folly and Australia s Lucifer s Fall team up for a trance-inducing and ultimately epic split. Two bands willing to break with doom metal convention, Finland s Cardinals Folly and Australia s Lucifer s Fall team up for a split that brings the heaviness, might and magic! After the release of their 2017 Deranged Pagan Sons album, Finnish doomsters Cardinals Folly started thinking about their next move. Having independently issued their 2016 Coalition of the Anathematized split with Church of Void and Acolytes of Moros, Cardinals Folly was hoping to find a willing label partner for their next split venture. They found one in Cruz Del Sur Music, who agreed to release the split on vinyl, one of Cardinals Folly s criteria. One of the bands at the top of Cardinals Folly's list was Australia s Lucifer s Fall, who were also fresh off of an independently-released split of their own with Reclvse. Realizing the possibilities, Cardinals Folly and Lucifer s Fall teamed up for a split that finds both bands contributing three songs each. Originally formed in 2004 as The Coven, Cardinals Folly came into being in 2007 in Helsinki, where they proceeded to release their debut Heretic s Hangover EP in 2008. The Orthodox Faces EP followed a year later, culminating in the release of their first full-length, 2011 s Such Power is Dangerous! The ensuing Our Cult Continues! (2014) and Holocaust of Ecstasy & Freedom (2016) furthered the Finns doom cause, running up to Deranged Pagan Sons. Inspired by the idea of creating a smaller release, Cardinals Folly decided to maintain a running thread of Nordic mysticism through their three offerings on the split. While the Finns had dabbled in this subject matter on previous albums, here, they made it a priority, starting with the doom waltz of Walvater Unveiled and into the trance-like Spiritual North. Rounding things off is the ten-minute Sworn Through Odin s & Satan s Blood, which is Cardinals Folly s distinctive ode to Hammerheart-era Bathory. Formed in 2013 and with two full-lengths in addition to numerous demos, singles and splits to their credit, Lucifer s Fall are using the split with Cardinals Folly as a go-between studio albums as they continue to work on the follow-up to 2016 s II: Cursed & Damned. One of the few doom bands to make an impact in Australia, Lucifer s Fall could be viewed as their home country s answer to greats such as Electric Wizard, Pentagram and Saint Vitus. Employing a more traditional metal sound than before, Lucifer s Fall had one simple operative for the split: Write simple, aggressive and catchy headbanging tunes. This is achieved across Die Witch Die, Call of the Wild and The Gates of Hell, all three numbers reveling in distinctive imagery and the band s dynamic and lively approach, ultimately showing the versatility within Lucifer Fall s sound. TRACKLIST Cardinals Folly: 1. Walvater Proclaimed 2. Spiritual North 3. Sworn Through Odin s And Satan s Blood Lucifer s Fall: 4. Die Witch Die 5. Call Of The Wild 6. The Gates Of Hell

Garage rock is alive and well in 2019. It lives in the alleys of East Vancouver, born and bred in the traditions of the Pacific Northwest and raised on Pebbles and Nuggets. Armed with a Fender Telecaster, an Acetone organ, and a soulful frontman whose harmonica work might send Little Walter to AA, it finds many new converts and takes no prisoners. It is THE BAD BEATS. Following on the success of 2016's His Vengeful Hand , incendiary local shows and a handful of recent tour dates on the other side of the Atlantic, THE BAD BEATS serve up a dozen high-octane blasts on their second SOUNDFLAT-release, mixed in mono for your lo-fi pleasure. Eight blistering originals complement the four covers on Off The Hook , including THE ROLLING STONES' title track and a haunting version of the TOWNES VAN ZANDT ballad Waiting Around To Die . The lone instrumental, Gooseback Machine is a straight-up driving blues jam featuring a guest appearance by Canadian ex-pat Spencer Evoy (MFC CHICKEN) on sax. The album fills out with a sonic barrage of three-minute garage shock morsels guaranteed to keep your head bobbing and knee jerking. Hey Hey, My My, Garage Rock Will Never Die. Or is it, My My, Hey Hey, Garage Rock is Here to Stay? Either way, long live the BAD BEATS!

Like the fading rays of the sun during the change of seasons, as autumnal splendor gives way to wintry majesty, FLUISTERAARS' Dromers conjures visions both familiar and foreign, both immediate and distant. Their vision of black metal is a highly personal and deeply emotive one, at times recalling early Primordial and Agalloch as well as Autumn Aurora-era Drudkh, yet evincing an engaging personality all their own - and one, it must be said, quite special to their Netherlands homeland. The path is open before you... "I ll certainly be giving this a spin for months to come, as it is compelling enough to warrant repeated listens which in turn reveal more facets of the sound of Fluisteraars." - TEETH OF THE DIVINE "Dromers by Fluisteraars is absolutely captivating a grand masterwork from the underground unleashed by a trio of visionary musicians." - 5/5 HIGHWIRE DAZE "this band is one of the new pillars of the Dutch black metal." - 90/100 LORDS OF METAL TRACKLIST A 1.

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.

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.

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

Dark-Prog act STONE LEADERS came to life in early 2016 when renowned drummer John Macaluso (of ARK, Yngwie Malmsteen, TNT, Symphony X, James LaBrie, Labyrinth and Michael Romeo) was contracted to do a drum clinic in Zagreb, Croatia. Asking the clinic organizer to find a band to accompany him in the clinic, Macaluso then met guitarist Ivan Mihaljevic and bassist Marko Karacic of Croatian band Side Effects ten minutes before the clinic began and decided on what they would play. The start of the clinic (now basically a full-fledged gig) was the Deep Purple classic Burn and it brought the house down. Right then, the trio knew they had something special here so when New Yorker John went back to Italy (where he now lives) he contacted Ivan and plans were made to get together to begin working on the debut STONE LEADERS album.

CURSE OF THE SKY

Band:IRON GRIFFIN
Album:CURSE OF THE SKY
Label:GATES OF HELL
Format:LP
Genre:EPIC METAL/HEAVY METAL

Mausoleum Gate drummer Oskari Räsänen goes on a throwback metal trip through time with first Iron Griffin LP, Curse of the Sky. Already known for his work in Mausoleum Gate, multi-instrumentalist Oskari Räsänen steps out on his own with his Iron Griffin classic metal project. The band s first full-length Curse of the Sky finds Iron Griffin exploring the vast terrain of proto-metal with an added twist: New vocalist Maija Tiljander. Enjoying a rare break from his main band, Mausoleum Gate, multi-instrumentalist Oskari Räsänen set a goal for himself: Finish an Iron Griffin album before the end of 2018. As the months started to tick away, he decided to spend all of July locked in a rehearsal room composing and fine-tuning his new compositions. Whereas the rest of his fellow Finnish countrymen were enjoying the long days of sunshine, warm weather and the proverbial trip to the sauna, Räsänen saw nothing but four walls and the various notes he kept while composing all by himself. By the fall of 2018, Räsänen emerged with Iron Griffin s first-ever full-length album, the seven-song Curse of the Sky, a true classic metal throwback to the time when organic sounds and climatic songwriting reigned supreme. Iron Griffin s self-titled 2017 EP saw Räsänen joined by vocalist Toni Pentikäinen. However, his new songs needed a different approach and feel. Enter female vocalist Maija Tiljander. A gifted rock singer, Tiljander was given the task of taking Räsänen s lyrical themes of fantasy, swords and sorcery with some medieval twists and adhering to his often weird and difficult vocal melodies. Tiljander pulled it off in the span of two days in the studio, no less, adding a new dimension to Iron Griffin s sound on standout numbers like Reign of Thunder and Lost Legion and Dawn of Struggle. As Räsänen is quick to admit, the songs on Curse of the Sky were created in a vacuum. Since Iron Griffin is strictly his project and does not involve additional band members, Räsänen has to trust in his songwriting instincts. The seven songs found on the album are a combination of trial and error, with Räsänen sometimes creating a new arrangement simply on the basis of a drum improvisation or from melodies and riffs he assembled over time. In spite of his singular songwriting approach, the songs on Curse of the Sky are multi-dimensional, taking the listener on a journey through the realms of 70s-inspired proto metal, where Räsänen s progressive leanings merge with his love for allegory and storytelling. The all-consuming process of creating Curse of the Sky left Räsänen drained by the album s completion. However, as the saying goes, the journey is often the reward. Curse of the Sky is Oskari Räsänen s vision brought to life. TRACKLIST 1. Prelude 2. Reign of Thunder 3. Forgotten Steel 4. Lost Legion 5. Curse of the Sky 6. Dawn of Struggle 7.

Lyngdal on bass and piano (Wormlust, Guðveiki, Martröð), Maurice De Jong on keyboards/synths (Gnaw Their Tongues, Cloak Of Altering, De Magia Veterum, Aderlating), Jarle Byberg on drums (Urgehal, ex-Craft, ex-Shining), and Kabukimono on voices. Their first observation on death and darkness, “Fleshvoid To Naught” is made of dissonant riffs, nightmarish voices rising from the subconscious, cacophonous noises, and deranged melodies. OBSCURING VEIL orchestrate a sinister black/death metal mass of sinful abandon, a vertiginous descent into abyssal depths of sickness and despair, a vortex of black psychedelia where light is banished and blindness is a blessing. Let the obscuring veil fall on you like a merciful caress. Let it swallow your miserable lives. Be one with darkness, now and forever.

Under the guidance of French guitarist/singer Guido Saint Roch, YSENGRIN play what they call 'hermetic dark metal': esoteric, occult music that reminds of a Middle-Age of metal, when there were no boundaries between its sub-genres, and when spontaneity and attitude were the most important values. With their primitive style YSENGRIN capture the essence of early 90s Hellenic black metal as well as MORTUARY DRAPE's morbidity and death fascination, dipping everything into the doomy, 70s-tinged heavy metal of DEATH SS and MERCYFUL FATE. For the first time ever, both YSENGRIN's demos from 2010, “Archivum MMV-MMX” and “Alchimëte”, have been totally remastered at Bell Collars Bizarre (HOWLS OF EBB) and collected on a single CD under the title of “Réincrudation”. The album program includes a very personal rendition of a DARKTHRONE's classic, “As Flittermice As Satans Spys”, as well as an exclusive bonus track featuring Costas “Dead” (OBSECRATION) and the German purveyor of dirt known as Blacksnake Nadasdy.

The biggest difference to "Funeral Impressions" is the sound, which got a lot better and which pushes the dark and cold atmosphere. The theme for the album is extinction, like the title says.

THE GRAND ANTIQUATION

Band:MEADOWS END
Album:THE GRAND ANTIQUATION
Label:BLACK LION RECORDS
Format:CD

Swedish Symphonic/Melodic Death Metallers Meadows End returns with their highly anticipated album THE GRAND ANTIQUATION. Filled with everything you've come to expect from Meadows End, the band's fourth album contains all their cunning symphonic and melodic tricks. THE GRAND ANTIQUATION is forged from uncompromisingly delivered death metal, so full of groove and atmosphere that it makes it worthy of establishing the band both as a unique innovator of their craft and a top player in the scene. THE GRAND ANTIQUATION is packed with intense groovy death metal layered with symphonics and mesmerizing melodies. Meadows End is known for their unique craftmanship of both shifting between soothing atmospheres, groovy rythms and thrilling fury, but perhaps most of all for the skill of combining these elements altogether. The band also hosts one of the best growlers in the world in Johan Brandberg. TRACK LISTING 01. Devilution 02. Storm of Perdition 03. Svept I Sorgepläd 04. Night s Bane 05. Non-Dreaming Eye 06.

BLOOD OATH

Band:RITUALS OF THE DEAD HAND
Album:BLOOD OATH
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:LP
Genre:BLACK METAL/DEATH METAL

Behind every legend, there's always a tiny bit of truth. While it's obviously still open to debate how much credit one must give to the Buckriders mythos - or 'Bokkenrijders' in their native tongue, the various gangs of thieves or who kept under their thumb the southern part of Holland throughout the 18th century by pretending they had signed a pact with the Devil and rode through the cold northern sky on the back of flying goats - it's still make one hell of story. And the prefect setting for an extreme metal album such as RITUALS OF THE DEAD HAND debut, Blood Oath... This brand new band was put together by two members of Belgian instrumental post-rockers Hemelbestormer, on Vàn Records. After the latter was done writing for their second album, their guitarist Filip Dupont felt the urge to dwell back in the same type of epic black/death genre his former band GORATH had became famed for, especially on their final album The Chronicles of Khiliasmos released in 2012. Recorded throughout 2017 and mastered by Patrick Engel at the Temple of Disharmony studio, Blood Oath is like the audio equivalent of famous 1922 Swedish silent movie Häxan about witchcraft. Far from our now computerized and PC-controlled society, with its four lengthy tracks (ranging from nine to eleven minutes) and very cinematic interlude ('The Gathering') and doomish passages, it takes the listener back into an age where superstition and local folklore still permeated all those small religious communities, with the story being told from the Buckriders' perspective. Actually, the cover artwork is a custom made painting of and old tree nearby their hometown where the vilains were said to gather around before launching another of their killing spree. So, truth or legend? Simple folklore or further proof that the Devil is always lurking somewhere in the shadow, especially behind man's vilest deeds? Whatever your answer is, one thing is sure: with Blood Oath, the Buckriders will ride again!
