UNIVERSAL DEATH CHURCH

Band:LORD MANTIS
Album:UNIVERSAL DEATH CHURCH
Label:PROFOUND LORE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:BLACKENED DOOM/NOISE METAL

The inevitable regeneration of LORD MANTIS occurred when vocalist/bassist Charlie Fell and guitarist/vocalist Andrew Markuszewski decided to mend ties and once again join forces for a new renewed union to properly carry on the LORD MANTIS legacy, mired in chaos and virulence, by honouring the memory of late drummer/founder Bill Bumgardner with their new album “Universal Death Church”. With guitarist Ken Sorceron of Abigail Williams fame (who also joined LORD MANTIS on “Death Mask”) and new drummer Bryce Butler, along with honorary vocalist/member Dylan O’Toole of Indian, “Universal Death Church” is the result of a band who has overcome dark and chaotic chapters and bitter internal feuds to set out once again to raise the bar of extreme music after the suicide of a key founding member in the ranks. “Universal Death Church” sees LORD MANTIS with a new sense of purpose and focus. More developed and immeasurable, vast and towering, “Universal Death Church” continues the doomed and blackened depraved metal paradigm that has become the signature resonating palpitation surrounding the LORD MANTIS sound. The threading between punishing, torturous yet direct and at times tangible industrial-influenced riffing with the more abstract, dark, blackened surreal-like crawling and swift passages paint a new disturbing sonic portrait for the band. The renewed union of LORD MANTIS became akin to that of repairing tissue of an unnamable and vile organism. Leveling up the beast.

NORDLIGE RUNASKOG

Band:OSI AND THE JUPITER
Album:NORDLIGE RUNASKOG
Label:Eisenwald
Format:DCD
Genre:NORDIC FOLK/NEOFOLK/SOUNDTRACK

Helmed by vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Sean Kratz, OSI AND THE JUPITER first emerged from its cocoon in 2016 with the debut album Halls of the Wolf. Led by the ever-poignant, goosebump-inducing cello work of co-conspirator Kakophonix, the album set forth the band's aesthetic, which would come to even fuller fruition the next year with Uthuling Hyl, released by current label home EISENWALD. Not surprisingly, Uthuling Hyl became many people's introduction to OSI AND THE JUPITER, and garnered the group favorable comparisons to Warduna, Forndom, Of the Wand and the Moon, Sonne Hagal, and Vàli among others - esteemed company, to be sure. However, OSI AND THE JUPITER are, by comparison, an American entity, which imbues their creations with a strange and totally unique disconnect from the Old Europa similarly channeled by those aforementioned contemporaries. There exists within their creative sphere a distant yet psychically strong conduit to the lore and traditions of the ancients - a veritable bloodline that empowers Kratz and Kakophonix. A surer-footed suggestion of such came with the Grå Hest 7" this past August, and now fully blossoms with the band's masterful third album, Nordlige Rúnaskog. Quite possibly the most perfect music for autumnal fires and the dying of summer's light, here do OSI AND THE JUPITER weave wistful ruminations on old days, The Old Ways, and the ways in which the turning of the seasons mark our lives. It's every inch the superior to the group's preceding recordings, and yet no marked changes have occurred within this iron-girded aesthetic. Simply, Nordlige Rúnaskog is the sound of OSI AND THE JUPITER at the height of their magickal powers, and we are all the richer for bearing witness to their plaintive paeans.

HALLS OF THE WOLF

Band:OSI AND THE JUPITER
Album:HALLS OF THE WOLF
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:NORDIC FOLK/NEOFOLK/SOUNDTRACK

Re-issue of Osi and the Jupiter's debut album, for the first time on CD ! Osi and the Jupiter`s first full-length "Halls Of The Wolf" explores neo-folk with atmospheric acoustic hymns, bluesy, dark and eerie. Hailing from the shadowy forests of Ohio amongst the echoes of old songs dwell the haunting hymns of Osi and the Jupiter. Sean Deth (also the frontman/bassist of Burial Oath and Witchhelm) offers his multi-instrumental talent in honor to Northern pagan traditions and in worshipful tribute to the peaceful finally of death. From its birth in 2015, the focus of the project has been on the spiritual connection between nature and the will of the old Gods – channeled through various representations of life, death and rebirth, this connection speaks through these musical creations, resonating as wordless tributes to these nebulous yet fundamental concepts.

 

 

VENENARE

Band:KRATER
Album:VENENARE
Label:Eisenwald
Format:DCD
Genre:BLACK/DEATH METAL

A 50-minute work broken into nine songs but unified as one winding, widescreen composition, Venenare shows KRATER at the height of their all-too-considerable powers, a blinding and windswept vortex of sumptuous songcraft and passionate execution. Motifs slice and dice, blast and race with a grace that's simply stunning, as melodic counterplay runs riot with a proud 'n' powerful assertion of classic metal sensibility. KRATER's contours here undeniably exude a sleek and urban quality, but with abstracted hints of their pagan past subtly woven in to the soundfield, the result is staunchly second-wave black metal bravely recast for the 21st century. With cover artwork courtesy of Misanthropic-Art and mixing & mastering handled by Esoteric's Greg Chandler, KRATER have gone full-force to deliver a great work for the ages with Venenare.

VESPERITH

Band:VESPERITH
Album:VESPERITH
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Sariina Tani channels the depths of the cosmos through the vessel of Vesperith. On her self‐titled debut album, Tani meditates on the nature of shadows and emptiness, stating that “This new album is a pilgrimage to the abyss. For many, shadows, darkness, emptiness, or void are almost stigmatized as evil, bad, or scary but I see almost heartbreaking beauty, light, and infinity there.” Mirroring the duality of light and darkness, Vesperith is a conduit for the chaotic harmony of the universe. Tani’s music is spawned from atmospheric drones, screeching distortion, and mesmerizing ambience, suddenly blowing up into euphoric, phoenix‐like waves of bewitching guitars and hypnotic siren song. Co‐produced by fellow dark Finnish extraterrestrial Jun‐His, well known for bending time and space in his psychedelic black metal band Oranssi Pazuzuand their Waste Of Space Orchestra collaboration with Dark Buddha Rising, Vesperith is a multiverse of sonic summoning. Although Tani shares kinship and spirit with her boundary‐breaking countrymen, she is on her own trajectory. This album is a personal odyssey, as Tani explains further: “It was a traverse to the darker inner regions of the soul and, through that alchemical trial of fire, becoming whole again.”

Massively framed by the enormous and intricate cover art, the four silent Chicagoans seemed to teach us all a lesson in how to deliver the heaviest and most atmospheric of music using just stringed instruments, drums and electricity. No head was left un-nodded in the 013 building as they blew away most of the competition with such furiously focussed cyclopean riffing that a crack nearly appeared in the Dutch sea walls 60 miles to the west. One hour of faultless instrumental rock. I felt hugely privileged. To quote any young American – ‘fucking awesome’. The Sleeping Shaman‘

MONROVIA

Band:PORNO TEO KOLOSSAL
Album:MONROVIA
Label:BURNING WORLD RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:DOOM

Pasolinian references are evident, from the choice of the themes on which the concepts are built, to the choice of instrumentation and to the discreet use of technology. The extreme musicality of the project brings the sound exploration of the PTK closer to the so‐called "artistic" performances rather than a traditional live concept. Monrovia is also the island of solitude. It is inevitable. For this reason many of the recording sessions of this album from the silence have sprung up and in the silence they have flowed. Almost all. Like the water of the river Mesurado. Choosing a location that was not the classic recording studio, placed about thirty microphones, little more, together and without overdubs, almost all the moments of this suite were recorded. The Mixing was entrusted to two sound engineers who have always and almost exclusively worked in the classical music sector.

A Prayer for The Birds was written by Crystal Jacqueline's partner and musical director Icarus Peel and was inspired by their shared love of nature and the environment. While the album may offer something familiar and dependable, it’s another step forward in a musical journey that started some years ago. For this album, Jacqueline was joined by new backing singers Victoria Reyes and Elaine Lightfoot. Victoria also plays exquisite oboe and Lizzy Wayne, who’s also played with the Honey Pot, adds flute. Both players and instruments add new colours to a pastoral sonic palette. Together they lay down a deep-pile carpet to walk on, a perfectly heated pool to swim in, an adequately logged fireplace to lie in front of.

MIND DESTRUCTION MAXIMUM GARAGE PSYCH VOL. 1

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:MIND DESTRUCTION MAXIMUM GARAGE PSYCH VOL. 1
Label:MIND DESTRUCTION
Format:6 X 7
Genre:GARAGE/PSYCH

Mind Destruction is pleased to present the first of 6 volumes of mega rare and incredibly sought after US garage and garage psych 45s contained in a full colour collectors box It’s more than 50 years since these fantastic 7 inches were issued in miniscule quantities and despite the various online resources that make finding rare records much easier, the singles contained in this box set turn up infrequently and even when they do, they’re often in less than acceptable condition. If an intrepid collector was actually fortunate enough to track down these records, the cost of buying them would easily exceed $2500! Included here is The Beautiful Daze’s City Jungle Prt 1, which is a much longer and more interesting version than City Jungle Prt 2 which was later to feature on RPR’s release as well as Black Suit by The Iguana (later to become The Iguanas) and My Door by Zakary Thak, both of which are ranked amongst the elite of Texas garage singles. All are mastered from the original records to ensure the best possible sound quality.

 

 

THREE SIDES TO EVERY STORY

Band:MOTHER TURTLE
Album:THREE SIDES TO EVERY STORY
Label:SOUND EFFECT RECORDS
Format:vinyl
Genre:PROG ROCK/EXPERIMENTAL

Greek prog/avant rockers Mother Turtle return with their fourth album, entitled “Three Sides To Every Story”. The title as well as the cover are purely symbolic, because once again, due to the bands tendency to experiment with different sounds and moods, they now present themselves as a power trio (being a sextet in the previous two albums and a quarter in their debut). With just guitar (and some guitar synths...), bass and drums, they create three songs in three completely different styles. Three Sides To Every Story will be released digitally on September 15th at Mother Turtle’s bandcamp page and later this year on vinyl by Sound Effect Records/Cosmic Eye Records and and CD by Sound Effect Records/Musicbazz.

DIALECTICS

Band:TEMNEE
Album:DIALECTICS
Label:SOUND EFFECT RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:STONER ROCK/DRONE

Spiritualistic session in space. Supersonic travel to singularity on an acid fuzz. Epic odyssey in the depths of consciousness. Hypnotic jams with orgasmic catharsis. Outstanding psychedelic trip iridescent with all shades of outer and inner space. And all that's Temnee. "Dialectics", the debut full-length album of Temnee, the band from Tver, Russia, is finally coming out on vinyl via Sound Effect Records! That is powerful instrumental heavy-psych stoner with deep and thick riffs, psychedelic passages, southern blues jams, oriental melodies, a lot of Sabbath's legacy and a krautrock drive. Temnee was created in 2013 in Tver, Russia. Their first 5-track, "Astrodiving" EP, was released in 2014. That cinematic minion with a lot of jams and fat riffs was followed by the full-length album "Dialectics", released digitally in 2016. Dialectics is a philosophical concept meaning the evolution of ideas: a dispute where truth is born. It perfectly describes the process of album creation. On "Dialectics" Temnee continues exploring cosmic horizons of heavy space rock. Moreover, the musicians have recently immersed into adjacent genres such as kraut and blues. Powerful sound will transfer you first to the opium haze of the Middle East, then to the Martian race! A turn to the foggy and cruel "Middle Ages" finally makes you feel the grievous fate of an astronaut living his last moments in outer space. "Dialectics" first ever vinyl edition comes with an amazing artwork by Anthony Downie and is available in three vinyl colors. Classic black, transparent milky clear and splatter vinyl and will be out on October 18th on Sound Effect Records of Athens, Greece. Vinyl edition includes "Zoetrope' and previously unreleased track "Rise" which mixes bright oriental melodies and powerful doom riffs.

DRAKO GIGANT

Band:DRAKO GIGANT
Album:DRAKO GIGANT
Label:SOUND EFFECT RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:DOOM DRONE/EXPERIMENTAL

Drako Gigant is an experimental heavy musical constellation from Athens Greece, formed in 2017 under the concept of exploring heavy music combined with elements of sonic textures like early industrial, ambient, progressive rock, jazz and metal. Improvisation has been the backbone of creating the soundscapes laid down, but not without carefully considering the impact each result might have, first upon the creators and then upon the listener. The members, each coming from different genres and with different approach to how music works and is created, collide in a cauldron of ideas where explosive mixtures and intense dynamics meet and merge into strong bonds of a sound collage full of contradiction; a melting pot of thought provoking color and a deep travel into both the subconscious and dreamy states of mind. In the end this work will have to suffer or win the test of time, depending on the point of view. No boundaries, no walls, just pure music exploration! "Drako Gigant" was recorded and mixed in Wreck it SOUND Studios during 3 days in May 2019 Engineered and mixed by George Leodis Produced by Drako Gigant Mastered by James Plotkin "Drako Gigant" will be out by Sound Effect Records, on limited edition CD, on October 25th 2019.

Band:EYEHATEGOD
Album:DOPESICK (REISSUE)
Label:PUNISHMENT 18 RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:DOOM/SLUDGE

Eyehategod was formed in 1988 in New Orleans and it could be considered one of the most famous American sludge metal band. Throughout the years, their core line-up has remained, with the exceptions of the bassist, a slot in which several musicians have played, and the death of drummer Joey LaCaze in 2013. Eyehategod have noted Melvins, Carnivore, The Obsessed, Discharge, Black Flag, Corrosion of Conformity, Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost, Confessor and Saint Vitus as key influences to their sound. Heavy, detuned, and bluesy guitar riffs dominate the band's discography. They are combined with walls of feedback and tortured vocals to create a harsh misanthropic vibe.

 

 

A SINGLE POINT OF LIGHT

Band:TERMINUS
Album:A SINGLE POINT OF LIGHT
Label:CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:EPIC METAL

Second full-length album from Northern Ireland epic metallers Terminus that continues their exploration into science fiction realms. It took three years for Terminus multi-instrumentalist and songwriter David Gillespie to compile the tracks for the band’s sophomore A Single Point of Light studio album. During that time, Gillespie was willingly subjected, in his own words, to “endless navel-gazing and hand-wringing” over the album’s particulars. Since he was responsible for every note and arrangement, not to mention handling the recording process at his home studio, the album became all-encompassing, a quest to improve upon the band’s well-received 2015 The Reaper’s Spiral debut. Based on the strength and depth of A Single Point of Light’s seven tracks, Gillespie and vocalist James Beattie succeeded in every respect. Mixed and mastered by Richard Whittaker (Solstice) and with artwork created by Anaïs Mulgrew, A Single Point of Light represents the logical next step in the music development of the Northern Ireland epic metallers. Their brand of twisting, sometimes complex, but always effective metal does not lend itself to one particular era or sonic reference point. Instead, Terminus songs are often mini-journeys onto themselves, a regular confluence of spiraling riff changes, guitar harmony duels and Beattie’s emotive vocals.

Peter Bjärgö, the man behind the now legendary groups ARCANA and SOPHIA is back with his second solo album. On his first solo release "A wave of Bitterness", we got a glimpse into the mind of a thoughtful person. Now this new release, "The Architecture Of Melancholy", we are sent onto a journey to the darkest depths of Peter's mind and thoughts. Melancholy was once a disease, a mental statement of chronic depression, we are now facing this illness again around the world and this album is a real journey with the melancholic mind. Titles like Bitteresque, Apathy and The Death Of Our Sun give us an idea of the aural voyage ahead. The delicate blend of soft guitars, engulfing dark ambient and the sheer power of Peter's voice make this album a shining diamond among stones. Hope is all that is left... Repress of 500 copies in 8 panel Digipak. 7 Tracks. Running Time 40:30

 

 

GNARLED RITUAL OF SELF ANNIHILATION

Band:BLACK EARTH
Album:GNARLED RITUAL OF SELF ANNIHILATION
Label:cyclic law
Format:CD
Genre:EXPERIMENTAL/AMBIENT

Spanish ritualistic industrial sorcerers BLACK EARTH return with "Gnarled Ritual of Self Annihilation" - a sophomore fulllength LP of unreal cinematic sonic disembodiment, conceived with the aim of turning the listener into a sacrificial centrepiece to a surreal ritual nightmare. Following in the steps of their debut LP "A Cryptic Howl of Morbid Truth" and of their followup mini-album "Diagrams of a Hidden Order", on "Gnarled Ritual of Self Annihilation" Black Earth further refine and sharpen their horrific sonic blade, slicing through shadows and darkness with more skill and mastery than ever before to reveal a dimension beyond of incomprehensible ritual abandon. As they first weave and then slice and dissect their impenetrable veil, a sonic ritual of abject disfigurement begins to take shape before the listener, as the strokes and gashes of black metal, industrial, noise and ritual drone intersect erratically and hypnotically, painting an hallucinatory arabesque of absolute dread and deformity. As the album's wicked spires envelops them like a fog of snakes, the listener finds themselves immersed into an hallucinating aural delirium of complete disembodiment and self-implosion, in which they feel simultaneously out of body and helplessly trapped and crushed within themselves at the same time. CD Edition of 500 copies in 4 panel Digisleeve. 7 Tracks.

Genre:WORLDMUSIC/FOLK/LITHUANIA/BURYATIA

UDU is the holy water of our earth, connecting us all together. Our bodies are water vessels that carry the genetic codes of our ancestors. Folk song is a way to dive deeper into yourself, into your roots. What language does your soul sing? Musical group of two nations, uniting the musical heritage of Buryatia and Lithuania. Throat singing connected with the Baltic songs of pagan times, when man and nature were one. Our goal is not to identify or show similarities and differences of our nations; rather, it is to share our music composed from the heart that is very dear to us. We often sit down and look for similarities in our cultures, stories or song texts, which grows the respect for all nations of the world in our hearts and brings our ancestors closer to each other. Since we met at one of the festivals in Kazachstan, “The Spirit of Tengri”, we have become a music family. We compose together, travel, eat, share stories, visit late into the night and use music to escape from negative experiences.

RAM

Band:CHARLENE BERETAH
Album:RAM
Label:DIVISION RECORDS
Format:vinyl
Genre:DOOM/SLUDGE/CRUST/BLACK METAL

On this first album, the trio distils its influences through 5 titles clearly reeking of the world’s end. The atmospheres are varied, though always tempered by the heaviness and the gloominess inherent to the band’s dark obsessions. Depression, murders and possession (both demonic and chemical) are topics treated in an atmosphere of furious madness and palpable despair. The groove, undeniable, smashing, thunderous, is interspersed with crust-punk accelerations that also recall the great hours of the Scandinavian second wave of black metal. You've understood, this first album is not in made of fine lace, and that's precisely what’s so good about it.

NOVUS LUX DOMINUS

Band:ORTHODOXY
Album:NOVUS LUX DOMINUS
Label:THE SINISTER FLAME
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

A so-far shadowy entity, ORTHODOXY hail from Spain and formed sometime during the past decade. In 2015, the band's first demo, Shaarimoth, burst forth from the womb, displaying a band fully, frighteningly formed. Indeed, this collective were no mere youngsters; the band's founder hails from well-respected cult DOMAINS, also a part of THE SINISTER FLAME's very selective cabal. However, that demo was but a mere taste of the salacious, supernatural slime to follow...At last, it arrives in full-length form, bearing the title Novus Lux Dominus. Howling from a black void, ORTHODOXY arrogantly stride forward with far more focus and utterly gutted execution. No more but certainly no less, Novus Lux Dominus is all-caps DEATH METAL - pure and proud, dark and sinister, sidestepping all the muddled miscegenation of nowadays "death metal" - and duly delivers a ninesong/ 44-minute journey below the bowels of the Beyond. Magickal in every sense, Novus Lux Dominus weaves an alternately hypnotic and disruptive spell, beckoning the listener ever deeper into their devastating energies, only to flay both body and soul with a sadism borne of incomparable blackness. Thusly, ORTHODOXY create a Metal of Death that's haunting and crushing in equal measure. Strident, almost martial, ORTHODOXY's Novus Lux Dominus heralds a new era of ageless darkness.

Because of their lust for rancid and rotten death metal, three maniacs started the band CRYPTIC BROOD in the year 2013. Several physical regurgitations of their unique death metal and morbid live rituals all over the globe made them spread their plague in the repulsive realm of the death metal underground. Now, the brood is back from a short slumber in its cave to unveil their new album entitled "Outcome Of Obnoxious Science". CRYPTIC BROOD's second full-length is a sonic lobotomy that vaporizes your brain in a vortex of filth. Rotten metal of death to shatter your skull with ghastly grindcore and distasteful doom metal, (de-)composed in their dungeon in Wolfsburg/Germany.

 

 

LIVRE SECOND (LIMITED)

Band:LES CHANTS DU HASARD
Album:LIVRE SECOND (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:ORCHESTRAL BLACK/AVANTGARDE

LES CHANTS DU HASARD debuted in 2017 with an impressive, eponymous album of neoclassical music pervaded by a venomous black metal aura; a work that brought together the enthusiasts of Mussorgsky, Prokofiev and R. Strauss, the orphans of Elend and the fans of Ulver, Arcturus and Emperor. Arguably the band's sophomore release, “Livre Second” is definitely more focused and confident than its predecessor, getting sole member Hazard closer to what he always wanted to achieve: orchestral music as dark and violent as black metal. The production is clearer, deeper and stronger; the arrangements, richer and full of exquisite details; the atmospheres are more majestic than before, and Hazard's vocals never sounded more tortured, cavernous and evil. However, it's the violent tones of the songwriting that increased dramatically. The innate elegance of classical music, here displayed in all its beauty, emphasizes the emotional roller coster and the sense of grandeur in LES CHANTS DU HASARD's compositions, constantly in balance between perturbing dark arias and sharp fragments of grotesque operas (“Le Voluer d'Yeux”, feat. the spirited guest vocals of Vaerohn from Pensées Nocturnes), uplifting Gregorian chants and irrepressible eruptions of rage (“La Course”). Only the nocturnal, romantic charm of “L'Eveil” is able to momentarily untie the lump in the listener's throat.

 

 

BIOLUME PART I - IN  TARTAREAN CHAINS (LIMITED)

Band:MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY
Album:BIOLUME PART I - IN TARTAREAN CHAINS (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:COSMIC BLACK METAL/DOOM

Four years after their second album, the highly acclaimed “Shards Of Silver Fade”, MIDNIGHT ODYSSEY return with “Biolume Part I – In Tartarean Chains”, the first in a trilogy of albums exploring the themes of banishment and exile, of fallen gods and resentment, of sacrifice and despair. A representation of things that have been taken from us, and the desire to return to a previous embodiment or form. Once again, sole member Dis Pater recounts the ultimate journey through death in the shade of a Nature apparently indifferent, yet always glorious in its beauty and compassionate in its embrace. “When coming up with the ideas for Biolume, I was thinking of how the relationship of light and darkness are tied together,” explains the Australian musician. “In the darkest caves, the deepest parts of the ocean, there are lights which are produced by organisms, with no need for the sun. Darkness is seen as a place of banishment, you are expelled from the light. To survive you have to create your own light, which no matter how faint, enables you to see enough of what you need.”

 

 

ENTROPIC INCREASE FROM THE OMEGA AEON

Band:XUL OV KVLTEN
Album:ENTROPIC INCREASE FROM THE OMEGA AEON
Label:ATMF
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

XUL OV KVLTEN are ready to get further exposure via ATMF after the totally underground and strictly limited debut album, where they proved their dedication to the darkest and vilest form of black/death metal. The Chilean combo is now evoking morbidity and chaos, throwing in their cauldron of sound both INQUISITION's macabre feeling and early EMPEROR's obscure choruses, in order to glorify the dark lord beyond any sort of modern compromise. Not merely a black metal band with symphonic elements, XUL OV KVLTEN took possession of some elements from the European and US death metal schools, and the result sounds familiar and fresh at the same time. "Entropic Increase From The Omega Aeon" was recorded in DM6 Studio, Chile, between April 2018 and January 2019. If the meaning of true, honest, underground black metal is your mission, XUL OV KVLTEN will ring a bell. The growling vocals and the symbiosis between cold, razor-like guitars, pounding drums and the esoteric vibrations in the background make of this second effort something truly remarkable.

DVM SPIRO was born in 2010 following NIHILI LOCUS rebirth and their recording of "Mors". The initial core composed of Max and Robi approaches a very heavy Funeral Doom. After about a year, Valla on guitar and Maurizio on the cello joined the band as the new compositions were more elaborate and complex. Over the years and after several rehearsals the band began to move away from Funeral Doom to approach a more melodic and complex style in which their extreme Doom Metal is combined with classical music scores played with classical acoustic instruments giving the whole a high impression thanks also to the very introspective Valla’s lyrics. In January 2019 they enter the Pink Noise Studio in Turin and under the supervision of Gianluca Barbato they record the debut album of the band entitled "MMXIX - In Frigidvm Lectvm" which will see the light in November 2019 on My Kingdom Music.
