LE DERNIER CREPUSCULE

Band:CHTHEILIST
Album:LE DERNIER CREPUSCULE
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Montreal Quebec’s CHTHE’ILIST was formed in 2010 by the duo of vocalist/guitarist/bassist Philippe Tougas and drummer Philippe Boucher (also of notorious Canadian tech death metal wizards Beyond Creation). Their intent was to play abhorred, morbid and dark atmospheric brutal Demilich-worship technical death metal with over-the-top guitar shredding. The result would be the “Amechth'ntaas'm'rriachth” demo which caused quite the stir in the underground death metal scene.

Now almost five years since the duo (now a three-piece) unleashed their demo, their much anticipated (within the death metal underground at least!) debut full-length “Le Dernier Crépuscule” is finally set for release early 2016. Recoded in various places and mixed by Greg Chandler (Esoteric, Cruciamentum, Indesinence) at his Priory Studios, “Le Dernier Crépuscule” is an insane dark death metal sonic pillage where the band’s old-school Finnish death metal hailing (i.e. Crematory, Abhorrence, early Xysma, and of course the aforementioned Demlich), along with taking influence from the likes of old-school Pestilence, Nocturnus, Timeghoul, and Ripping Corpse, reflects through their massive ambitious pieces that form their debut album. 

For fans of Demilich, Pestilence, Nocturnus, Ripping Corpse, Timeghoul, and old school Finnish death metal.

DYRTANGLE

Band:EGO DEPTHS
Album:DYRTANGLE
Label:DUSKTONE
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Dyrtangle – name comes from an imaginary world and being a play of words, cannot be translated correctly through words. However, dyr is “a beast” in Old Norse language, and “tangle”, its English roots, sends us to “entanglement”. So litterally, but not even close enough, it means “in rough embrace of the beast”. Some similar notes may be found in coming of Indian Buddhism to Tibet, transforming the “beasts” or so-called “evil, wrathful deities” into the guardian of the fused, new Tibetan Buddhism.

Ego Dephs may be talking with hungry and evil spirits, negotiating the aspects of the life and debating about its laws and principles, however, it may sound silly from aside (well, you may exclude it). Besides the traditional instruments, like guitar, bass and drums, he uses different styles of vocals, including growl, screaming, whispers and clean tone, but as well he try to employ throat singing, which “Dyrtangle will contain a lot. Chanting, beside the growls and overall extreme funeral doom metal ambience, Stigmatheist wanted to create something new. Something, that has not been explored before. It would be better fail at creating something original, than succeed at imitating something existed before

 

 

KADINGIR

Band:TITAAN

The Titaan project proposes a merging guise of a concept dealing with the ancient Mesopotamic culture and a musical experience transcending the occult black metal feelings with ambient and noisy shadings.

Three years later Horrid entered the legendary Sunlight Studio in Stockholm to record its second Ep "Blasphemic Creatures", released by Behind The Mask Records. The mini album became an underground classic and gave Horrid the chance to sign a deal with Deadsun Records for the release of its first full length "Reborn In Sin" (2002). Shortly thereafter, in 2006, the band received attention from Xtreeme Music and released its second full album "Rising From The Hidden Spheres".

ADELINE

Band:FALLEN ARISE
Album:ADELINE
Label:ROAR
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Second full length album from Greek symphonic metal act FALLEN ARISE. 

“Adeline” is a melodic, heavy and groovy symphonic metal album, that combines a theatrical atmosphere with a progressive approach and a heavy-metal-alike heaviness. Containing a gothic-like conceptual story, and enhanced by the participation of a 40-member ensemble, the sophomore album of Fallen Arise sounds sometimes lyrical and sometimes extreme, mostly because of the ideal combination of female symphonic vocals and brutal growls, performed by two seperate singers. Fans of symphonic metal pioneers Nightwish and Epica will be equally pleased with listeners of more gothic acts such as Within Temptation and enthusiasts of more progressive-sounding female-fronted acts, like After Forever.

LEGIO AXIS KA

Band:PAVILLON ROUGE
Album:LEGIO AXIS KA
Label:DOOWEET
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

The band finds the perfect blend of industrial and black metal fury for a proposition which fans of either genre should seriously contemplate.

"Although this album will not appeal to your average Black Metal purist, it's nonetheless a great album. It's so idiosyncratic and etches itself indelibly into the listeners’ memory that, even if this is not considered the best Black Metal record of the year, then at least it will be the most memorable. Personally, as a fan of both Black Metal and Electronic music in all its forms, I loved it. “METAL TEMPLE”

IPSO FACTO

Band:ELYOSE
Album:IPSO FACTO
Label:DOOWEET
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Overall, “Ipso Facto” is a very catchy and engaging release. Any fan of bands like Epica, Xandria, Nemesea, etc. will greatly appreciate such a well‐produced release. If you like female‐fronted music that is melodic and quite catchy, think Amaranthe but not cheesy, Eloyse is the band for you.

"Production wise, everything is fine. Again, a good and solid sound, it’s all nice, heavy and, well, yeah, modern sounding. In summary, an album which more than anything displays executional talent rather than great songs. The most noticable thing being Justine Daaé’s vocal – she can do just about anything with that voice of hers. “THE POWER OF METAL”

 

 

PARIS BRULE-T-IL

Band:THE CNK
Album:PARIS BRULE-T-IL
Label:DOOWEET
Format:DVD
Genre:Metal

1996. After being fired from his first band Malveliance as he was accused of being too bossy with his fellow band members – it seems that his charisma was already a problem for some people – Nicolas Saint Morand (best know under the Hreidmarr moniker) founded the Count Nosferatu Kommando, aka CNK, together with very close friend Jean‐Sébastien Ogilvy (aka Heinrich Von B). The boys’ goal was quite simple: to create the dirtiest, meanest and most borderline black metal band ever. CNK scoured the local bars and took part in a few underground festivals with haphazard performances, but they eventually got noticed thanks to the chaotic and quite dangerous atmosphere they delivered through their shows. After two rather badly produced demos and the recording of a track meant to appear on a compilation that would foresee their upcoming musical style, CNK was put aside in 1999, due to Hreidmarr’s busy schedule as he just joined symphonic black metal act Anorexia Nervosa.

They have a very good work in hands, and they know how to put the elements of this mix along with no problems. And they have a very good musical insight, with excellent instrumental basis (good guitars, very good bass and drums, with weight and technique in their due proportions), and the vocals are a great surprise: behind the growls and aggressive grunts, is a female vocalist, Cristina. And she sings better than many male vocalists in the genre.

Band:ADVANCED ART
Album:ARCHIVE.
Label:EK Product
Format:CD
Genre:Industrial/EBM

The legendary Finnish project Advanced Art has definitely entered with all the honors in the prestigious retro Electro / EBM / Industrial firmament, commemorating its thirtieth anniversary of foundation by this unmissable double album. "Archive" is a realization of fundamental importance for all the alternative record collectors: it contains an extraordinary historical fragment of the European electronic sound, now condensed in a long succession of songs, including rarities and live‐tracks which any fan of this band will be proud of possess. Catchy vocal calligraphism, melodies and atmospheres electronically obscure, pulsing drum‐programming always interacting with the most compelling danceability, they are the prerogatives of this triumphant discographic creation that will honor the last part of the year 2015 and more. "Archive" is a concatenation of synthetic emotions, the tangible evidence of the value of one of the best bands into the technological oldschool music scene, an album that summarizes years of glory, avant‐gardism and true talent. The dual function of this great album is mainly to commemorate the unique style and the uniqueness of Advanced Art, but also to spread their repertoire to the new generation of electrolisteners, still continuing with them the authentic tradition of a sound that never fade. One thing is unmistakably clear: we are dealing with a masterpiece!
