BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU

Band:LOCRIAN AND MAMIFFER
Album:BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

“Bless Them That Curse You” is the anticipated collaboration between two of the most respected bands in the realm of experimental/progressive music today. Chicago, Illinois LOCRIAN have been known to create prolific and genre defying and mesmerizing works within the realm of experimental music that they are now seen as one of the most in-demand bands within the field. By creating waves of epic ambient noise mixed with elements of such genres as black metal and soundscape drone, LOCRIAN have developed a body of work that has only been progressing more and more since their inception.

MAMIFFER was initially founded by artist Faith Coloccia after the disbanding of her experimental project Everlovely Lightningheart, With MAMIFFER, Faith began to focus more on songwriting through the paino, fusing neo-classical elements and then incorporating ambient electronic hums and reductionist metal dirge. With MAMIFFER, Faith had collaborated with a myriad of musicians but found a steadiness with her main MAMIFFER co-conspirators Travis Rommeriem and her partner Aaron Turner (of ISIS / Hydra Head Records fame).

 

 

COME THE THAW

Band:WORM OUROBOROS
Album:COME THE THAW
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Formed in 2008 by Lorraine Rath (ex-THE GAULT, AMBER ASYLUM) and Jessica Way, San Francisco’s WORM OUROBOROS would make quite an impression with their self-titled 2009 debut album. Described by Decibel magazine as an Asunder album played by Kate Bush, WORM OUROBOROS’ delicately constructed chamber pieces were an immaculate combination of ‘80s 4AD inspired chamber/dark rock and doom metal. The band’s debut album, and the band’s live performance, would help them build a reputation within the underground, one that culminated with the band serving as direct support to AGALLOCH’s “Marrow Of The Spirit” North American tour in the Spring of 2011 and even having their live set from their NY show stream on NPR.

Now joined by veteran drumming underground legend Aesop Dekker (also of AGALLOCH and the now defunct LUDICRA) on drums, with “Come The Thaw” WORM OUROBOROS have heightened their musical craft into something more meticulous and moving while ultimately teetering through musical territory that’s much darker, somber, and delicate sounding than their debut album

For fans of AGALLOCH, COCTEAU TWINS, THIS MORTAL COIL, ASUNDER, and KATE BUSH

LIFE SOMEWHERE ELSE

Band:ISIDORE
Album:LIFE SOMEWHERE ELSE
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

It all started as a tribute. A thanks. A return of inspiration. Jeffery Cain (Remy Zero) handed Steve Kilbey (The Church) a disc mysteriously credited to "Isidore." Much to Cain's surprise, what was once an instrumental came requited by words and melody sung in Kilbey's distinctive baritone - a collaboration was born. 8 years later Isidore has reappeared! Life Somewhere Else is a sprawling epic featuring another sterling vocal performance by Kilbey (perhaps his best ever) and Cain's sterling sonic alchemy. Though short enough to fit on a single compact disc, Life Somewhere Else is spread across four sides of 180-gram vinyl (limited to 500 copies) - the medium where the album's sequence is enjoyed best. Haunting and beautiful, Life Somewhere Else has a power beyond its corporeal form. It's a masterpiece.

Features Steve Kilbey from The Church and Jeffery Cain from Remy Zero.

SINGLE LIFE

Band:MARVELOUS DARLINGS
Album:SINGLE LIFE
Label:Deranged
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

For the uninitiated, the Marvelous Darlings features Ben Cook from FUCKED UP doing some of the best 77’punk meets power pop since the EXPLODING HEARTS. Single Life compiles a string of 7” vinyl releases by the Darlings, which have all now long sold out. As great as the singles are on their own, this is one of those cases where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

"Deranged has been kind enough to release Single Life, a compilation of seven-inch gems by the Toronto, ON band, fronted by Ben Cook (of Fucked Up and No Warning fame). Contained are 16 tracks full of power pop hooks – the cute as hell "Teenage Targets" and the rock'n'roll spit of "The Swords, the Streets" stand out – as well as five demos. Whether you're familiar with the Marvelous Darlings or new to the band, this LP is a great reminder of why their name is always uttered with an air of fond nostalgia, the token indication that a band made a dent in the scene during their short time together" - Exclaim Magazine

ART GALLERY

Band:THE METHOD
Album:ART GALLERY
Label:SEE MONKEY DO MONKEY
Format:VINYL 7"
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

THE METHOD break into your ears like angry young mods inspired by The Specials reared on their older brother’s punk 45s, dope smoking Uncle Robin’ American psych albums, perhaps old pa’s ska, soul and R&B discs… and oh yes, the neighbourly rasta’s Lee Scratch Perry collection! It’s all there (and more) with a throw-it-up-in-the-air-and-seewhat- happens-when-it-lands approach. ‘Art Gallery’ combines an incessant, foot to the floor driving rhythm with numerous stops, starts, pauses and crescendos. Its main Beatles-like melody cajoling itself through all manner of psychedelic effects, surf guitar lines and trumpet break. The three-minute running time over rides specific references to create a future radio smash akin to Julian Cope’s anthemic ‘World Shut Your Mouth’. Capturing the unbridled essence of The Cramps, The Coral and pre- Steppenwolf ’60s garage/psych band The Sparrow it’s a fast paced, pounding affair that has all the hallmarks of a good old hit record.

THE SOUNDS CAN BE SO CRUEL

Band:DEAN ALLEN FOYD
Album:THE SOUNDS CAN BE SO CRUEL
Label:Crusher
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

DEAN ALLEN FOYD is a Stockholm based psychedelic band with a wide range of music styles. Everything from garage, delta blues, folk and space-rock can be heard in their music. Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd, Arthur Lee’s Love and Captain Beefheart can be easily picked as some of their influences but at the same time the band takes a step forward into making their sound modern and updated with the present times. The Sounds Can Be So Cruel is an album presenting nine ingeniously composed songs with elements of, aside from the obvious ones, theremin, strings, slide and flute for instance. The music is packaged neatly and matching along with an equally attractive as bold cover.

"The Sounds Can Be So Cruel" is an album that will take DEAN ALLEN FOYD far away from being labeled as an underground band and will establish them as a genuinely great rock band, plain and simple. Shows are planned for March and April 2012 in support of the release. www.facebook.com/deanallenfoydmusic

RECREATION

Band:PAPIER TIGRE
Album:RECREATION
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

5 years after they started from scratch, PAPIER TIGRE have built a name for themselves with two albums « PAPIER TIGRE » (2007) and « THE BEGINNING AND END OF NOW » (2008) and 350 shows in more than 20 countries over 3 continents, with the three- piece appearing at ATP among other festivals around the globe. Their music is firmly entrenched in the tradition of inventive, challen- ging punk but combines elements of experimental pop compositions and aggressive math-rock. The band understands that a song being intelligent and complex need not exclude it from having a raw, danceable energy. For their new album « RECREATION », the band teamed up with John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, the Roots, Bill Callahan, The pAper chAse...) to produce their most significant work yet. Pushing the limits of their unusual line-up (drums, 2 guitars, percussion, vocals), the band has matured into a devastatingly efficient unit, with instruments, ideas and personalities bouncing off each other in an audible culture of creativity. The 10 songs are an impressive account of the band's ability to balance different atmospheres, underlined by original rhythmic patterns, minimalist melodic lines and distinctive vocal hooks, the whole blossoming under Congelton’s sonic prowess.

GOT GOOD IF YOU GET IT Plus Bonus Tracks

Band:KANSAS CITY JAMMERS
Album:GOT GOOD IF YOU GET IT Plus Bonus Tracks
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:2CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

The members of Kansas City Jammers (described elsewhere as “struggling between getting good grades and scoring good drugs”) first began performing together in 1969, while students at Ohio Wesleyan University. Colorful though that description may be, it hardly tells the tale, as the band members were all accomplished musicians and songwriters. The end result: excellent music! The band’s self-released “Got Good (if you get it)” LP, recorded between 1969 and 1971, and given the deluxe master-tape reissue treatment here, is a mixture of up-tempo heavy guitar rockers and well-written dreamy acid-folk tracks: in other words, some folk, some folkrock, a hard-edged bluesy cut with heavy guitar (‘Messiah’) that sounds like Fat (on RCA), and two live songs (‘Midnight Watch’ and ‘Driver’) with filthy, snarling guitar that sound like they slipped off side two of the Oliver Klaus album. The band members were nominally influenced by the big British Invasion bands (the Beatles, the Hollies), as well as Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the Grateful Dead. As live performers, the Jammers were known for giving incandescent shows with a rougher edge (think Rolling Stones and the Who) than is captured on most of their released material; the live tracks in this set are certainly some of the toughest sounding cuts on this collection. A second Kansas City Jammers LP was recorded during the summer of 1972, but was never released, until now; disc two includes all of the tracks that were meant for that release—all told, 45 minutes of additional Kansas City Jammers music! The “Got Good (if you get it)” album has long been a favorite of psychedelic collectors and those in the know—the Acid Archives entry, for example, is full of compliments for the band’s “strong vocals and songwriting throughout.” The story of the Kansas City Jammers is probably akin to that of many excellent bands who had short careers. As much as they loved music, despite the fact that they had some local success, it was never in the cards for music to become full-time careers for most of the band members. The 24-page booklet has the entire band history, courtesy of an Aaron Milenski interview first written for the legendary Lama Workshop.

 

 

FOUR LEVELS OF EXISTENCE

Band:FOUR LEVELS OF EXISTENCE
Album:FOUR LEVELS OF EXISTENCE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

An album that many people consider to be the best Greek psychedelic album ever recorded, a belief that would mean that the Four Levels of Existence LP would surpass albums by artists like Aphrodite’s Child, Socrates, Axis, and George Romanos. We’ll let you decide the argument, for there is no doubt of one thing—that this is tremendous hard edged psychedelic rock, originally released on LP in a very small quantity by the private Venus label in 1976. As band leader Athanasios Alatas said: “Through Nick’s musical quest, Mario’s sensitivity, Christos’ madness, and my thoughts, we create many songs, all characterized by a psychedelic music sound, Greek lyrics, and monumental guitar solos.” Since the appearance of our first edition of this album on CD, the excellence of the band has not gone unnoticed: the guitar riff from ‘Someday in Athens’ plays a major role in Jay-Z’s Grammy awardwinning single, ‘Run This Town’ (featuring Rihanna, Kanye West) from his chart-topping “The Blueprint 3” album. Somehow, Kanye West found our original CD edition of this album, and the rest is history. Just another reason for people to discover the legendary, fuzz-guitar laced work of Four Levels of Existence. This carefully documented reissue contains the entire Four Levels of Existence LP, the only recordings they ever made. A twenty-four page booklet includes historical background on the Greek music scene of the early 1970’s, details of the band’s past ,written by Alatas, rare photos of the group, as well as lyrics in both Greek and English. This second CD edition is strictly limited to 1,000 copies.

 

 

49TH PARALLEL and SINGLES

Band:49TH PARALLEL
Album:49TH PARALLEL and SINGLES
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Great collection of material from legendary Canadian psychedelic band 49th Parallel includes all tracks from their super-rare 1969 Maverick label LP, plus 11 bonus cuts taken from non-LP singles and a 1966 recording released under their original name of Shades of Blond. The group's first two singles, ‘Laborer’ b/w ’You Do Things’ (1967), and ‘She Says’ b/w ‘Citizen Freak’ (1968), are prime pieces of pouting Prairie punk. In the spring of 1969, the 49th Parallel had a hit in Canada and the USA with ‘Twilight Woman’, a lovely song that sounded like a poppier, slightly folkier version of what bands like Tomorrow were doing in England. The success of those fistful of singles resulted in the release of the 49th Parallel’s only album, on MGM affiliate Maverick Records. All hyperbole aside, this is easily one of the top Canadian rock albums ever released. The album contains excellent material, including the pulsating psychedelia of ‘Lazerander Filchy’ and the ultra-strange ‘(The) Magician’, as well as the quintessential punk edginess of ‘Now That I'm a Man’ and ‘(Come On Little Child &) Talk To Me’. Dan Lowe's blazing fuzz guitar work stands out, particularly on ‘Missouri’, and when challenged by organist Jack Velker's brilliant stuttering work on ‘Eye To Eye’, ‘Talk To Me’ and ‘(The) People’. Strong melodies, great playing and sympathetic production, make for a must own collection of songs. The twelve page booklet includes two slightly different views of the band’s history, as well as the notes from the original LP release.

Chelsea Crowell returns with her 2nd full length, the deeply personal Crystal City. The only 3rd generation songwriter from a truly iconic, musical dynasty (Rosanne Cash and Rodney Crowell are her parents), Crowell delivers her own eclectic brand of country, exploring everything from intimate folk, moody rock, to the epic western tale of the album's title track.

No Depression online has already hailed Crystal City as one of the favorite albums of the year. Crowell has been noted by critics as a songwriter and recording artist that marches to her own drum, choosing stripped back production to the slick commercial sound so often attributed to Nashville.

BADLANDS

Band:ERIC TINGSTAD
Album:BADLANDS
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Badlands is Ambient Americana. Music with a kind of reflective atmosphere that honors the traditions of American roots music and Western culture. The follow up CD to Tingstad's 2006 GRAMMY nominated Southwest, there are layers of American fingerstyle guitar over a solid bed of crunchy twangy telecaster and infectious grooves. With some cuts having a Native American vibe, Badlands features an abundance of dobro, steel guitars, fiddle and shamanic drumming all tied together with the help of Cindy Cashdollar, Nancy Rumbel and Byron Metcalf. Relaxed but not whimpy, this recording has a slightly menacing message that the desert is a beautiful and spritual place, but you can also get in big trouble out there. Thinking about his boots, snakes and that empty tequila bottle, Tingstad always captures the essence of the "place" in his songs ... New age cowboy with some punch.

Backing singer/ songwriter/guitarist Randy Riviere is a stellar cast of Nashville musicians, including legendary guitarist Reggie Young (Elvis, The Beatles), Chad Cromwell (Neil Young, Mark Knopfler), and others. Red and Blue takes an outsider’s view of the political polarization America has experienced in recent years. "The title track is really about the deteriorating political discourse in our country,” says Riviere. But 'we the people' aren't really that different, regardless of what the politicians and their big money enablers do and say to divide us and keep us voting is certain ways.”

With their amplified synth-rock and creeped-out, cryptic vocal hooks, Nervous Curtains' new record takes you into a world of Fake Infinity where everything you think you know is wrong. The canvas here is filled out by black space organ and pulverized synthesizers. Taking the dislocation and anxious agitation of 70s post-punkers such as Magazine or early Ultravox and injecting a jagged noise rock aesthetic and dynamic moodiness, Nervous Curtains avoids retro devotion while producing a memorable and authentic sonic experience. As naive optimism and idealism have been destroyed, the band seeks a new kind of beauty in the rubble. When the world is at its end, it is whatever you make it to be. Once you understand that we're living in Fake Infinity, a new concept of personal success is born within the crumbling system. Nervous Curtains promises you this is no beach party.

Paul McCartney died in a car crash in the winter of 1966 and the remaining Beatles, wary of losing their standing as the most popular band in existence, replaced him with the winner of look-alike competition, a double named William Campbell. It became the conspiracy theory of the decade.

Believing the band were involved in the alleged deception, and seeking evidence of their involvement, mischievous fans presented ‘proof’ to the world in the form of clues with which they claimed the band peppered their later work. Examples include the faintly-heard “I buried Paul” at the end of Strawberry Fields, the bass guitar shaped funerary flower arrangement that can be seen on the Sgt. Pepper album sleeve and the appearance of William Campbell posing as Paul on the front of Abbey Road, dressed to imitate Paul’s barefoot corpse.

What is in no doubt is that the resulting spate of singles spawned by the rumour are a great collection of ’60s music in their own right. They’re all featured here, with B sides included. LIMITED TO 1000 COPIES ONLY.

IT`S JUST A LONELY FEELING

Band:BOBBY SANT
Album:IT`S JUST A LONELY FEELING
Label:SAKUNTALA
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Folk

Bobby Sant has with his debut compiled a highly acoustic track list infused both with sensitive awareness and a considerable amount of punk attitude. Except for small guest contributions of piano, harmonica and electric guitars, the songs is entirely about Sant's sharp, chanting vocals, rooted somewhere between dark blues and dreamy folk music, and his fingerpicked guitar. Bobby Sant stands alone in the songs as well as in the studio and the desolation is a significant theme going through the whole album. The desolation created after the ones you've left behind, but also in the missing of the ones you haven't met yet and of the situations not yet experienced. "Music is life and death for me, literally. I think I'm a person seeing the world in black or white. The grey parts just don't interest me" "It's just a lonely feeling" is rooted in a blend between ancient folk and the contemporary indie scene in a similar way as acts like Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, and Fleet Foxes. Sants' songs might not feature any lush vocal harmony arrangements but is still creating a highly intense and dreamy soundscape. And like two other big names in the genre, the fellow Swede The Tallest Man on Earth and Kentucky's Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Sant lets his songs be built up by battered and broken elements as well as sincere and tender ones. As a little bonus, the cover photos are taken by Katie Van Zandt, the daughter of the one and only Townes Van Zandt!

BRUTAL BLUES

Band:BLACK MAGIC SIX
Album:BRUTAL BLUES
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

Black Magic Six is Finland’s hardest working band in the underground rock´n´roll scene. A power duo consisting of a percussionist and a guitar-wielding singer, BM6 play relentlessly emotional bursts of dark, primal rock'n'roll energy.

The restless duo turn over a new leaf with their new album, Brutal Blues. The title is a bit misleading, as the band has not quite become a blues combo. Instead of playing a set of 12-bar blues standards the dynamic duo brings you ten brutal slices of life in and out of the ordinary. Sonically the album is a more mature affair in comparison to their earlier masterpieces. It's a smooth mixture of rootsy blues and rockabilly, with even some country thrown in, all soaked up in the Devil's music also known as dirty, greasy punk rock.

SICKENED BY HOLY HOST

Band:PROFANATICA
Album:SICKENED BY HOLY HOST
Label:Hells Headbangers
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

The original purveyors of bleeding-raw Black Metal barbarity & mesmerizing filth! This oddity features an all new 39 minute minialbum plus the "The Grand Masters Session" Box Set on CD for the very first time. Nearly 80 minutes of true blasphemy & perversion. The mini album portion features 5 new songs plus 2 old classics written and recorded by Ledney with a session member. The performance on this work is much like their primitive NECROVORE-ous atrocities committed in the early '90s and allows for safe assumption of what could have been heard on their long-lost album, "The Raping of the Virgin Mary." Meanwhile, part #2 of this mini album features the same titles but written and recorded by Gelso alongside the same drums & vocals performed on part #1. The execution of this session continues in the more musical direction showcased on their first 2 albums and incorporates soundscapes sonically compiled by the late Aragon Amori. The end result is nothing short of devastating, and the vast contrast between these two sessions takes on the form of an album in itself that is sure to appeal to both old & new devotees of the black cult...HERE IS WISDOM!

BLACK CASSETTE

Band:WRECK AND REFERENCE
Album:BLACK CASSETTE
Label:FLENSER
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Wreck and Reference are an experimental project that conjures up a thoroughly unique mode of electronic doom tinged with no wave. The Californian duo eschew guitars entirely, but you wouldn’t know it from their artfully constructive, intricate compositions; it’s difficult to believe that those crashing “riffs” aren’t borne of magnetic strings and long-forgotten blues licks. Formed by Drummer (Ignat Frege) and multi-instrumentalist (Felix Danbold), the band’s live performances are a mixture of live drums and samples triggered by an MPC style controller, creating a sound that is as unique as it is rooted in the traditional heavy of guitardriven doom: Warning meets Killing Joke, Electric Wizard filtered through an alien command center. The band drew the attention of many blogs with the self-released tape-only Black Cassette, which was later issued on CD by Music Ruins Lives. Black Cassette is as refreshing as it is confusing—a post-post-post trip laced with Cormac McCarthy, experimental noise, haunting wails, sci-fi menace and an angry, bizarre undertone that rises up and defies explanation. At times ethereal and spacey, at times bombastic and cathartic, and always intriguing, Wreck and Reference challenge orthodoxy and decimate genre conventions; dom has never sounded so apocalyptic. The sky is black, the soil is still burning, and the machines have won. You have never heard anything like this.

DEMO MX11

Band:LYCUS
Album:DEMO MX11
Label:FLENSER
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Black Metal

Originally formed in 2008, lain to rest, and now, with their triumphant 2011 demo, resurrected in despair, California’s Lycus are a welcome addition to the doomed pantheon. This weighty four-piece play mournful, weighty funeral doom in the vein of genre titans Skepticism and Worship and peers Loss; ‘Demo MMXI’ is elegant in its despondency, and achingly beautiful in its sorrow. It’s frankly unbelievable that this is an initial offering; the complexity, maturity, and crushing, heaving emotions encapsulated within these three compositions is nothing short of breathtaking. These forgotten sons of Samothrace, distant cousins of Anhedonist, purebred descendents of Asunder, have created something truly timeless, and have only just begun their slow, certain rise to the absolute zenith. Multiple scribes and band folk alike have already heaped praise upon this album, and it’s only fitting to see it entombed in wax by The Flenser. These three majestic compositions simply demand to be ensconced within the loving embrace of virgin vinyl, and now, finally, the twain shall meet. Don’t sleep on this.

Album:BUILT FOR THE FUTURE
Label:Glasstone
Format:CD
Genre:Indie/Shoegaze

There isn't really anything The Bohemian Embassy haven't sacrificed for the band, and largely operating on questionable sustenance, they bring to your ears some inspired material described as "telepathic post-punk" & not dissimilar to a modern day Velvet Underground or next generation Beatles, with some Supergrass style and modern-day glam thrown in to the mix, sealed together by a pure love and addiction for making music.

'Built For The Future' is fun, energetic & hard-hitting at times. Refreshingly difficult to pigeonhole, but the songs are beautifully crafted and stick with you in that "pop" way without really tiring. The Bohemian Embassy already have a great live reputation, always bring a crowd, always ends in frenzied primal urges, sharing stages with bands such as You Love her Coz She's Dead, Go Ape, Supergrass, The Heavy, Kid Carpet, The Delays Etc...

ENTER THE DAGOBAH CODE

Band:UMBAH
Album:ENTER THE DAGOBAH CODE
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Born in 1990 by the will of Cal Scott, once guitarist for UK's death/grind act Necrosanct, UMBAH is the metal equivalent of the indecipherable nightmares of an alien computer-god with serious mental illness and destructive appetites. "I compute, therefore I am", he repeats to himself while he deletes with a simple gesture what's left of the human race: a file into a recycle bin, waiting for permanent erasure... Only partially assimilable to other sonic extremists like Cephalic Carnage, Obscura, The Berzerker, Meshuggah, Fear Factory and Skinny Puppy, UMBAH speaks with its own voice. Despite the countless albums behind his back, Cal Scott's approach is still that of a space explorer. He ventures into unknown territories hungry with new experiences and discoveries, and not afraid of experimenting with complex mechanical textures and contaminated metal sounds

 

 

LUX DEERIT SOL I

Band:MALASANGRE
Album:LUX DEERIT SOL I
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Formed in the year 2000 with the aim to play slow, filthy, psychedelic music (like it happened on the debut album "A Bad Trip To...", whose raw and smoked sounds stood between those of Electric Wizard and Nightstick), Italian doomsters MALASANGRE have gradually evolved into an extreme doom metal beast. Slowly, their tunes have become more primitive, darker and heavier than before. The result of such further barbarization was called "Inversus", a three-chapter album "drifting in and out of ambience and devastating, droning doom, wielding the strange but potent combination of funeral and sludge". After seven years of hard work and isolation, MALASANGRE are out of their shrine, ready to spread their apocalyptic metal in the form of "Lux Deerit Soli": a concept album featuring 2 long suites, for over 72 minutes of trance-inducing, absolutistic black-doom.

Album:TOTENTANZ
Label:SVARGA
Format:CD
Genre:FOLK METAL

With this album THUNDERKRAFT really went in an experimental direction, combining the classical Old School Death Metal and “modern” Black Metal with electronic music, folklore, epic and symphonic elements. This wild combination of styles plus live-recorded violins, flutes and saxophone make the sound of the band truly unique. The lyrics are written in Ukrainian, Russian and German and explore problems of mankind’s relation to the past, ideas of greatness and boundless possibilities of the human spirit, and the strength of will and character.

“If Carcass had keyboards on Heartwork, it may have sounded something like Thunderkraft ... Thunderkraft may be the most awesome band in the Ukraine, for all I know” - Maelstrom Magazine
