PARADOX

Band:NOCTURNUS AD
Album:PARADOX
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:TECHNICAL DEATH METAL

Resurrected from the ashes of one of the most influential death metal bands of all time, Nocturnus, NOCTURNUS AD was initiated by Nocturnus founder/mastermind/death metal legend Mike Browning (also co-founder of Morbid Angel) to continue the path that was laid down, 28 years later, by the legendary Florida death metal band s seminal 1990 album The Key . An album recognized as one of the most important death metal albums of all time. Entitled Paradox , the debut NOCTURNUS AD full-length album is the direct and proper follow-up to The Key , musically and thematically where the story and themes vocalist/drummer Browning laid out with The Key continue with Paradox through the lens of the occult. The story follows the journey of Dr. Allen William Magus (aka Dr. Magus), a scientist who got ravaged by a war plague disease and kept what was left of himself alive by creating a bio suit, from the aftermath of the events that went down in The Key . On a musical plane, Paradox s otherworldly, technical dark atmospheric occult death metal blueprint harnesses and carries on the energy of The Key and the overall cult death metal vibe of the early 90s in the singular forward-thinking way that Nocturnus exhibited. Musically overwhelming and pretty much a sonic attack on the senses from every angle, Paradox is sci-fi death metal reclaiming its throne back to its originators. With Browning (technically returning to Nocturnus lore since 1992) commanding the craft alongside a lineup (that also forms his other band, After Death) that continues the Nocturnus legacy through guitarists Demian Heftel and Belial Koblack, bassist Daniel Tucker (ex-Obituary), and keyboardist Josh Holdren. With the blazing and fervent guitar work of Heftel and Koblack and with the carefully orchestrated keyboard sounds being the most developed out of any Nocturnus-related release, this integral component helps solidify the calculated pummeling rhythm section in resurrecting the classic sound of The Key . And of course Browning s distinct vocals spewing the incantations containing the classic Browning vocal traits as reflected on The Key and of course Morbid Angel s classic Abominations Of Desolation , with Browning of course being the co-writer of some of those classic and signature Morbid Angel anthems of old. Overall, Paradox will see NOCTURNUS AD reclaim and continue to properly carry the torch of the legacy Nocturnus laid down with The Key , Paradox being the ceremonial illuminating Nocturnus-related release that has finally befallen the mortal coil after 28 years.

 

 

SINGS

Band:H.C. SLIM
Album:SINGS
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:OUTSIDER FOLK

Rural legend and outsider folk artist H.C Slim had amassed quite a catalog of original songs he s demoed on a tape recorder, deep in the Eastern Finnish countryside. Over the years cassettes and CDRs began to circulate with original copies selling for high prices, before Svart Records drove out to his remote cabin to offer Slim a deal for his debut album. Evangelical visionary, and wayward preacher, H.C Slim calls forth revelations of pastoral love and rustic abandoned buildings. His song is that of the wandering missionary that brings to mind the Holy Joe pastor of John Huston s Wise Blood, wandering from town to town to find the cracks of light that spill out from heaven, amongst the decline of the backwoods. A man that spent his formative years smoking cigarettes and playing his guitar, between distilling moonshine in an old empty factory, his songs are both apocalyptic and illuminating, swelling between religious fervour and starless prophecies of biblical destruction. Songs like Wheels Of Judgement , Sweet Virgin Mary and I Obeyd A Heavenly Vision throw up Dylanesque lines with the mastery of the old greats, such as Ramblin Jack Elliot or Woodie Guthrie. However Slim s astute and contemporary flair for song-craft wouldn t be out of place on a bill with artists like Laura Marling, First Aid Kit or The Tallest Man On Earth, if his Finnish maverick and lone wolf pilgrimage lead him out of wilderness.

IV

Band:K-X-P
Album:IV
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:ELECTRONIC

This is a dialogue between man and machine, say K-XP, continuing the lineage set out by Kraftwerk all those years ago. Yet a nostalgic pursuit of such past explorations this is not, IV is an album that is emblematic of K-X-P s ever-ceasing desire to move forward and explore new worlds, hurtling forward into new realms of minimal techno, icy synths and brooding atmospheres. Ultimately however, driving forward and exploring new territory is at the heart of K-X-P, both in the music itself and in their never look back approach. In fact Tomi refers to this three-track album as a pure piece of transparent bright futurism a mix of raw power, cosmic disco, modern classical and rave anthems.

IN DECAY

Band:KILL SHELTER
Album:IN DECAY
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:7" vinyl
Genre:GOTHIC DARKWAVE

Burning World Records are releasing two of the darkest and most emotive tracks taken from the debut Kill Shelter album “Damage” as a limited edition double a-side single. The 7” vinyl single features In Decay ft. Antipole & Delphine Coma backed with Bodies ft. Buzz Kull. Both tracks explore the theme of death from very different perspectives. In Decay explores the theme of loss and the inherent futility of the notion of forever. It’s an introspective story of personal grief and the impact of losing someone close to you set against a rich, dark guitar driven backdrop. Bodies in contrast tells a macabre story which takes inspiration from a suspected murder case and a related Podcast by the Australian entitled “The Teacher’s Pet”. This track explores the darker side of human nature. The backstory revolves around a disturbing cold case from 37 years ago in Australia, where the sinister disappearance of a young mother is shrouded in a veil of sordid mystery and guilt.

Repress of 300 copies of the 2014 cd (on Burning World Records) Produced by Chris Fielding(Electric Wizard, Conan) Remastered for vinyl in 2019 by James Plotkin (Khanate/Conan/Slomatics) Bast s sound is a very interesting one indeed, drawing an equal amount of influence from avant-sludge outfits like Neurosis and Eagle Twin as they do progressive black metal like Altar Of Plagues, Winterfylleth etc. The trio don t fit comfortably in either the black metal or doom niches however, with their bleak yet psychedelic vibrations existing in a world of its own. Bast have already shared stages with the likes of Nachtmystium, Ufomammut and A Storm Of Light.

 

 

RANONKEL

Band:MACHINEFABRIEK
Album:RANONKEL
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:LP
Genre:AMBIENT DRONE

Special vinyl release of the third Burning World Records release in 2008 after Gnaw Their Tongues and a vinyl version of Marijn by Machinefabriek. At the time it was only released on CD. Some of the material of Ranonkel (besides new Machinefabriek-material) was used by Swiss filmmaker Rene Gardi for his movie African Mirror. Specially mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin (Bell Witch, Godflesh) in 2019. The press at the time about Ranonkel: Vital weekly: Using guitar, effects, vinyl and laptop, Rutger Zuydervelt creates highly atmos-pheric pieces of music, like he always does. His previous effort, the soundtracks to films for the Rotterdam Film Festival wasn't so much of my liking but on 'Ranonkel' he more than makes up. These are strong pieces again, varied in approach, although all centered around the notion of dark atmospheric music, each of them has their own approach. aQuarius: The sound of Machinefabriek seems to be moving in a much more melodic direc-tion, not that there wasn't always plenty of melody, but these latest forays into soundmaking sound less purposefully experimental, less abstract, and more songlike, more melodic, the opener is downright lovely, and sounds like it could be Godspeed or some Godspeed spawned outfit, a luxurious slow burn, and deep warm chords and glistening sprinkles of high end over the top, haunting and ominous and cinematic, might just be the best track we've heard from Machinefabriek. But heck, the rest of the disc is some pretty great shakes too.

'Sympathy for the Beast', the new album by Twink and the Technicolour Dream, is based on the wonderfully imaginative poetical works of Aleister Crowley, whose natural and intrinsic musical quality Twink and the Technicolour Dream have tried to intensify with their psychedelic musical drive, using sections of the original poems as lyrics for their songs or narrations for their musical backgrounds.

In addition, William Breeze, head of the Ordo Templi Orientis, the lodge presided by Crowley through most of his life, has provided the recently discovered manuscript scores of two unpublished songs by Crowley that Twink and the Technicolour Dream are presenting for the first time in their original form (piano + soprano) and a rock version.

CUACHA

Band:SIDEWINDERS
Album:CUACHA
Label:LION RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:Alt Rock

"By the time they recorded Cuacha!, the Sidewinders had almost figured out what kind of band they wanted to be. On some cuts here the Hüsker Dü-goes-West mix of acoustic textures and roaring guitar is almost perfect. 'I Guess It Doesn't Matter' and 'Blood on Our Hands' are punk-pop masterpieces driven by Rich Hopkins' snarling guitars and Dave Slutes' country-inflected but brash singing... The album is worth having for the first released version of 'What She Said,' a song that the band released on three different albums, each time rocking a bit harder and at greater length. The version here is a dark, mournful folk-rock piece." -AllMusic "More than one observer of the Arizona rock scene has noted that had the Sidewinders not been derailed by legal and label problems, the Tucson quartet might've beaten neighboring Tempe's Gin Blossoms to the brass ring. Or maybe it was just a case of the too-good/too-early American band syndrome in the conservative pre-Nirvana era. Formed around the songwriting core of guitarist Richard Hopkins and vocalist David Slutes, the Sidewinders quickly garnered local acclaim and recorded "Cuacha!" for Hopkins' own San Jacinto label. The album has it's share of jangly folk-rock moments instantly familiar to any fan of mid-'80s R.E.M. Yet it's traditional feel-part psychedelic pop and part dustbowl blues-suggests influences stretching back at least two decades." -Trouser Press Take a look at a quick list of "Best Albums" from 1987 and you quickly get a sense of the musical mood of the year: the Joshua Tree by U2; Appetite For Destruction by Guns N' Roses; Sign 'O' The Times by Prince; You're Living All Over Me by Dinosaur Jr.; Document by R.E.M.; Sister by Sonic Youth; Darklands by The Jesus And Mary Chain; Diesel And Dust by Midnight Oil; Come On Pilgrim by Pixies; and Pleased To Meet Me by The Replacements. It's not a stretch at all to plunk the Sidewinders "Cuacha" right amongst those records-both in terms of quality and "sound." The Sidewinders formed in the spring of 1985. The group released "Cuacha!" in 1987 (and again in 1988), and subsequently signed to RCA/Mammoth Records, with whom they released two full-length albums, 1989's "Witchdoctor" and 1990's "Auntie Ramos' Pool Hall." "Witchdoctor" cracked the lower echelons of the Billboard 200 on the strength of two rock radio hits. The band scored exposure on MTV and VH1 and embarked on a worldwide tour. But the Sidewinders were soon sidelined due to legal problems stemming from a challenge over the band's name. As the Sand Rubies, they released an album on Polydor/Atlas in 1993 (at one point, Pearl Jam served as their opening act). However, the strain of the legal tussle led the Sand Rubies to dissolve during a tour in 1993-just as two other Arizona rock bands, Gin Blossoms and The Refreshments, attracted mainstream attention.

 

 

SIMEON BROWN/BELLADONNA

Band:GREEN SEAGULL
Album:SIMEON BROWN/BELLADONNA
Label:MEGA DODO
Format:7
Genre:ROCK/PSYCH/POP

Taking their name from a mis‐heard Rolling Stones lyric, Green Seagull are the latest band to burst out of London's burgeoning neo‐psych scene. The band formed in 2016 when Paul Nelson (New Electric Ride) approached Paul Milne (Hidden Masters / Magnetic Mind) to work on some songs together. A shared enthusiasm for late‐60s baroque psychedelia and 12‐string jangle soon blossomed into a prolific songwriting team. Their debut album, Scarlet Fever, was released last year to critical acclaim. Now the band returns with a new single. ‘Simeon Brown’ is adorned with a radiantly cheery bandstand blossoming that’s charmed with a ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ era McCartney‐esque artistry dovetailed with a Kinks meets Tomorrow vibe”. ‘Belladonna’ has a festooning of fuzz stoked grooviness immediately drawn of a love for the Zombies, swirling keys kissed with a shades adorned authentic 60’s beat pop savvy which not for the first time during this evenings listening thus far, has sided a kinship with the Wicked Whispers with a tracing hint of a younger Hanging Stars.

 

 

UNPLUGGED AT GALERIE FLENSBURG 1981

Band:TONY SHERIDAN
Album:UNPLUGGED AT GALERIE FLENSBURG 1981
Label:SIREENA
Format:2CD
Genre:ROCK N ROLL/FOLK/BLUES

Tony Sheridan was an artist with almost 6 decades of musical activity, however fate in the same breath acknowledged him more so through his association with more prominent musicians. This was sadly still the case at the time of his death on February 16th, 2013, in Hamburg, Germany. The 'New York Times' obituary put the headline Tony Sheridan, Colleague of Beatles, Is Dead at 72 , in death he was still regarded as a side man not a major performer. In his early years Tony Sheridan indeed had served as a background or session musician for the Beatles and certainly the Beatles intern had provided instrumentation on some of Sheridan s early and most well-known recording sessions. The book 'The Hamburg Sound' characterizes Tony Sheridan as an "unusual guitarist and singer known for doing the unexpected". Furthermore soon after his arrival in Hamburg from England, Tony Sheridan was considered the King of St. Pauli (which was the music quarter of Hamburg). People attending his shows expected him in the 1960s to sing 'My Bonnie', 'Skinny Minnie' and many other rock 'n' roll hits, naturally Sheridan sang these numbers and the crowds were very well served and satisfied by his repertoire. Most certainly this was the music by which he had become known in Germany. When Tony Sheridan faded from the spotlight, theatres and television, he did not fully disappear like countless stars who had experienced their "15 minutes of fame" through involvement with music. Tony Sheridan still toured, he was constantly on the road, he travelled from near, Hamburg to Munich, and he travelled far, Australia to Vietnam. His fame over the years has been based upon the legacy of the 'Beat Brothers' band show and the song 'My Bonnie'. However Sheridan s interest was more deeply tuned towards blues and folk music. It goes without saying that he did not want only to perform his repertoire from the sixties some decades later, he wanted to push his musical boundaries. The change in style musically found on these discs has an emphasis solely on 'Tony Sheridan and his Guitar'. The recordings are taken from his solo unplugged show in 1981 when he appeared in the renowned Galerie, Flensburg a popular Germany music pub, this was years before performing ' unplugged became the fashion. This double CD allows you to hear different and enthralling sides of this evening, and gain an insight into the musical world of Tony Sheridan.

Album:THE UNIVERSE BY EAR
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:ROCK/PROGRESSIVE/PSYCH

"It could have started with a knock on the door, a letter on the table or some blood on the floor" – That’s the opening line of the second self-titled album from The Universe By Ear. And indeed: There is an endless array of ways to open an album, that follows up upon a critically appraised debut (2017). The Universe By Ear chose a hidden escape route and start off with a psychedelia-fuled garage-rocker: “Been Here Before” of course is a misleading title for that opener, since the powertrio ventures into newland. But of course The Universe By Ear also remain true to what they do best, which is the instrumental freefall through des musical cosmos they call psychedelic brain blues. But since a conscious and constant trespassing can in itself be limiting, Grünenfelder, Bürgin and Strittmatter dish out a poppy hook ("Temperamental Apathy") a badass shouter ("Bad Boy Boogie) and a two faced cinematic Wild-West-Soundtrack ("Sand And Dust). It goes without saying that mathematics (“Lessons From An Ordinary World"), grooveriffs ("Euphoria"), some krautrock ("Follow The Echo") and stoner ("Loudest Gorilla in the Cage") also find their spaces. The bands thumbprint – three freewheeling instrumentalists and just as many voices – remains distinctive. In "Where All Sheep Are Black" you will re-encounter a wall of guitars and the superimposed vocals, that also made the debut-album stand out.

VALENTINO'S PIRATES

Band:DAVE RAVE GROUP, THE
Album:VALENTINO'S PIRATES
Label:hanky panky
Format:2CD
Genre:POP/ROCK/POWER POP

*** The definitive reissues of VALENTINO S PIRATES, now available on vinyl for the first time since its original release *** "One of the most accomplished pop albums of the 20th Century's final two decades... Valentino's Pirates is a lost or, perhaps more accurately, unknown masterpiece of the genre and era, filled with epiphanies both large and small." (Stanton Swihart - AllMusic) MARKETING AND PROMOTION A long story short: In 1989 recording begins at Daniel Lanois Grant Avenue Studio for what will become VALENTINO S PIRATES, under the supervision of producer Gary Pig Gold. Shortly after, DAVE RAVE leaves Canadian proto-punkpoppers Teenage Head and settles in New York City with Gary, where the album was completed and a band, known as The Dave Rave Conspiracy, was formed alongside Billy Ficca of Television and Lauren Agnelli to perform the songs live. Initially, Valentino s Pirates received a limited, cassette-only release in Canada on the Mole Sound label. Eventually though, through a connection with the mysterious Rudolf Solovyov (owner of the Kismet company in New York), Dave Rave became the first Western artist signed directly to the Russian Melodiya label and the album (reduced to 10 songs, due to timing constraints, plus the Dave Rave Conspiracy renamed the Dave Rave Group to appease wary Soviet sensibilities) was released in the until-recently U.S.S.R. circa very early 1992. Cue to today, 30 years since recording for the album took place, Hanky Panky Records is proud to release the first-ever vinyl reissue of Valentino s Pirates as the 10-song original Russian pressing, and as a deluxe double CD set with the complete 13 song album, plus a Naked Pirates 22 track collection of demos, alternate mixes and unused tunes, most of which are previously unreleased. Valentino s Pirates features the talents of Jon Tiven, Bill Dillon, Malcolm Burn, Shane Faubert, Lane Steinberg, Coyote Shivers, Rick Miles, Cindy Beattie, James Doc Proctor, and Jack Pedler. Nowadays, Dave remains the hard-working legend he is, writing songs, putting out albums and touring the world, while Gary continues, in the words of AllMusic, to record the unwritten history of pop music both high- and lowbrow, and every brow in between.

PEOPLE! LET'S FREAK OUT

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:PEOPLE! LET'S FREAK OUT
Label:PARTICLES
Format:5CD
Genre:Rock

The Irish Rock Rebellion 1963 - 1970 The Explosive Sounds of Dublin, Belfast and Beyond! Brand New and Sealed Deluxe 5CD Box Set, with over 130 tracks! Full-colour 88 page, perfect bound booklet with detailed liner notes and rare images Particles proudly presents the first ever box set anthology of Ireland s 1960s rock music scene. Only two long-out-of-print compilations have ever emerged to profile Ireland s rock roots, making this anthology doubly inviting! From the R&B/blues scene in Belfast to the late 1960s psychedelia of Dublin, People! Let s Freak Out reveals a wider account of the beat scene, and its transition into psychedelia and blues rock. While Ireland has never been given equal acclaim to that of its neighbouring England, it nevertheless produced some of the most iconic and influential bands of the period. As Van Morrison and Them were leaving Belfast for London, a slew of new hopefuls arrived to establish their own niche under the nose of the dominant showband scene. Compiled here, are 125 original recordings featuring various groups from Eire and Northern Ireland, some of whom went on to huge success in the 1970 s. From Ian Whitcomb to Eire Apparent, The Bye-Laws to the Belfast Gypsies and Gentry to Sugar Shack, People! Let s Freak Out is a fascinating account of Ireland s more obscure and vibrant music scene of the 1960s. Spanning five discs with rare and previously unreleased recordings, a plethora of memorabilia and expansive liners housed in an 88 page full colour booklet, People! Let s Freak Out offers an excellent companion to similar anthologies such as Nuggets, Rubble and Buried Alive!!

The unique sound that makes SKÅNSKA MORD stand out in today's scene is present on every track on the new album.

FRIED ON ROCK

Band:OBLIVION REPTILIAN
Album:FRIED ON ROCK
Label:SOUND EFFECT
Format:LP
Genre:PSYCH ROCK/SPACE ROCK

Oblivion Reptilian is a collaboration between Andrew Panagopoulos (Drums-Percussion) from Australian heavy space rock band COMACOZER and Mike Vest (Bass/Guitar) from legendary bands such as BONG, Blown out, 11Paranoias, Melting Hand, Lush Worker. With Comacozer and Blown Out releasing a split LP in 2018 which sold out in a week, Mike and Andrew had an idea of let’s do a project together. Obviously the initial question was, ‘How the hell to do this from opposite sides of the globe?’ but thanks to modern technology and creativity it happened. Was an interesting exercise indeed to record this slab but with huge amounts of improvisation and similarity in influences ‘Fried on Rock’ came together quite fluidly. Mike worked his magic with guitar and bass plus mixing the tracks and the results are fantastic! Obviously both Andrew and Mike have their own tones and style and drawing influences from their other projects but in saying that OBLIVION REPTILIAN comes into its own. With their ‘Fried on Rock’ debut, better be prepared for 5 tracks of instrumental space rock, fuzz and feedbacker glory, along with some haunting breakdowns and mid tempo melancholia. ‘Fried on Rock’ has the amazing album artwork and design by Anthony Downie, who just nailed the theme and feel of Oblivion Reptilian.

Green Jinn is their first outing stripped back to heavy bass and drums (and some samples), and it feels slower, lower and all round heavier than anything they ve done to this point. Brilliant album. Stoner doom gold right here folks. [Hand of Doom Radio] "All stars align here as sparkling production, bludgeoning bass rhythms, and intelligent melodies flow together to engulf fans of the heavy." [Rotation11... EXPLORE THE HEAVY] "With "Green Jinn" Pyraweed once again crawl into songs inspired by packed bong of emerald enlightment. The band renders a smoke-hazed swamp of molasses-like pacing, as they ooze their doom sludge grooves. They spark flames of psychedelia as they exhale tripped out, airy vocals." [Riff Relevant] TRACK LISTING 1. Mist 2. Dusk 3. Dust 4. Man of the Mountain (Bonus Track)

New album from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania's keys and drums, husband and wife, heavy pop duo Slingshot Dakota! It's be a long three years since their last album, 2016 s Break, became a quick favorite amongst both fans and critics; Slingshot Dakota was even featured as a Band You Need To Know by Rolling Stone. But as that year came to a close, both Carly and Tom started to truly witness the inequalities of the music industry and this country after he who shall not be named took office. Carly had an awakening; I realized things weren t all that fair; there were so many of us artists and bands that deserved better, and the self-discovery of it all really changed my life. The time since has been spent quietly harnessing all of that energy and turning it into some of Slingshot Dakota s strongest and most impactful work yet. Crafting each song in real-time, when emotions were fresh and at their highest, Slingshot Dakota have created a must-listen collection of unapologetic, heavy pop with their upcoming album Heavy Banding.

Duncan spent countless hours field recording on the voyage between Tokyo to Aokigahara which creates the perfect atmospheric companion to the intricate instrumental approach.

Album:MERCEDES KOLO
Label:CPL MUSIC
Format:CD
Genre:FOLK/KLEZMER RUSSIA

"Dobranotch" was set up in 1998 in France where a company of friends musicians from St.Petersburg, Russia was driven by wanderlust and the love of fresh musical experiences. After some years of travels the band came back to St. Petersburg to get a new lineup and new sound. "Dobranotch" performs Jewish, Gypsy and Balkan traditional music, drawing on deep knowledge of traditions, rich experience in traveling and interacting with traditional musicians from different countries. The band's repertoire also includes Russian songs of the golden age of brass bands. Throughout its existence "Dobranotch" has toured across more than twenty countries of the world and recorded seven albums. One can hear the band's music in TV series, feature films and documentaries. The band "Dobranotch" sounds equally convincing on philharmonic stages and in clubs and on open air festivals. It is not uncommon that the musicians of the band come down off the stage to play right among the audience, as their predecessors did at weddings a hundred years ago.

 

 

ASSU

Band:ASSU
Album:ASSU
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:FOLK/SAMI/FINLAND

Áššu base their music on traditional Sami Joik. Ulla Pirttijärvi joiks of her relatives and her home villages Utsjoki and Angeli. Olav Torget and Harald Skullerud complement the ensemble with string instruments and percussions. The ensemble draw further inspiration from West African grooves and tradition. They vary their expression from wide atmospheres and quiet moods all they way to more uptempo grooves. The world music scene has long enjoyed their music especially around African and Arabic tradition. This has influenced the instrument choices and unique sound of the new album Áššu (Embers). With this album I’ve wanted to present my relatives’ joiks and the joiks of those persons who have had an influence on my life. These joiks are part of my family identity. They are traditional joiks from my home village of Angeli and Utsjoki, where I now live. There are also Sámi villages’ joiks and joiks that are related to the Sámi view of the world. The pieces gives a modern context to the traditional joik, and express and support in a plain and acoustic style the feelings and stories of the joiks.

 

 

PAUANNE

Band:PAUANNE
Album:PAUANNE
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:FOLK FINLAND

Pagan sounds from the depths of the Finnish forests!
Pauanne rediscover the long-lost non-Christian tradition of Finnish folk music. The trio, fronted by Kukka Lehto, has searched through Helsinki’s music archives and unearthed exciting material from the early 20th century – a rich treasure of ideas! Their repertoire includes powerful curses as well as longforgotten shepherd’s songs. In the eyes of the institutional Church, this folk music tradition is full of sin. After all, it doesn’t even shy away from making fun of the vicar’s boring sermon. Pauanne’s self-titled debut album is full of surprises; these tunes are rough around the edges and full of disrespect and have little in common with a more familiar nostalgic and jovial type of folk music. Kukka Lehto (violin, keyboards) and Tero Pennanen (keyboards) are in charge of composition and arrangements. The experienced trio surprises with occasional glimpses of progressive rock, such as in the beautiful “Susiraja”. Janne Haavisto on drums and percussion provides the rhythmic backbone to the music. The historical material used in these songs was collected by Kukka Lehto and Tero Pennanen. But Pauanne do not live in the past: The gentle “Rauta” bears some resemblance to Gotan Project’s lounge style and tracks like “Siihen Laihin Eläny” are somewhat reminiscent of Martyn Bennett, a Canadian- Scottish musician who brought traditional Celtic music into the here and now. The accompanying video is about a historical witch trial in 17th century Finland.

It’s 2019 and the planet is a mess.

Reminiscent of the likes of Superchunk, Sebadoh and Jim O'Rourke, the record is made up of nine songs including imminent single releases 'Every City' and 'Everyone You Know'. The album is a follow up to their previous recording, 'In Sequence'.

One of the very first Italian heavy metal bands returns with its first full-length album in eight years, Metal Shock! Trailblazing and traditional metal ensemble TIR emerge with their second full-length in a career that dates back to 1980, Metal Shock, an album that challenges the old-school metal status quo by having lyrics sung entirely in Italian. A year away from their 40th anniversary, Italian traditional metal outfit TIR remains one of the best-kept secrets in the underground. Formed in 1980 by the guitar tandem of Sergio Bonelli and Danilo Antonini, TIR opted for the path of most resistance: Instead of releasing studio albums and seeking major label assistance, they preferred to perform live shows. Their performances soon became can’t-miss events in Rome. Aided by fire, pyrotechnics and even live snakes, TIR’s reputation spread like wildfire (no pun intended) in their home city, catapulting their lone release of the decade, 1984’s self-titled demo, into the frenzied world of underground tape trading. However, while the metal scene waited for TIR to record a proper full-length album, the band stuck to their guns and simply kept playing live.

The “Phantom Hawk” arrives to enslave ancient Egypt. Here to tell the tale is Pulver, a German metal five-piece who batters like classic Tank and dazzles like early Iron Maiden. Just over a year after the release of their well-received self-titled debut EP, Pulver emerge with the Kings Under the Sand full-length, an album loaded with eight taut, memorable, but gritty classic metal cuts. Pulver’s career has been a domino effect: They formed in late 2016, recorded an EP barely a year later, then, in early 2018, fell upon the ears of Gates of Hell Records, who were all too eager to snap up the young German quintet. Such a rapid development had little effect on the Aschaffenburg outfit, who, by the time their self-titled EP was released in 2018, was already demonstrating songwriting flair resembling that of Accept and Iron Maiden and even Tank, a reference made by several well-informed journalists. Just over a year after the release of their self-titled EP, Pulver has emerged with their first full-length, Kings Under the Sand.

From the Italian underground comes Vultures Vengeance, a heavy epic metal quartet that defends the realm of the obscure on their first full-length album, The Knightlore. The wait is over…ten years into their career, Italian heavy epic metallers Vultures Vengeance deliver on the promise shown on their Where the Time Dwelt In and Lyrids: Warning From the Reign of the Untold EPs with their first full-length The Knightlore. Tony T. Steele formed Vultures Vengeance in 2009 with rather earnest intentions. Simply put, he wanted to assemble a band of like-minded people who had the same passion for classic and somewhat obscure heavy metal as he. From there, they would write original material, record albums and play live shows in their native Italy and across Europe. However, Steele, who serves as the band’s vocalist and lead guitarist, encountered the usual lineup turnover the befall younger bands, making him even question whether Vultures Vengeance would have a career to call their own. Undeterred, Vultures Vengeance finally made their way into the studio in 2015 to record their debut demo, Rising.

From the Italian underground comes Vultures Vengeance, a heavy epic metal quartet that defends the realm of the obscure on their first full-length album, The Knightlore. The wait is over…ten years into their career, Italian heavy epic metallers Vultures Vengeance deliver on the promise shown on their Where the Time Dwelt In and Lyrids: Warning From the Reign of the Untold EPs with their first full-length The Knightlore. Tony T. Steele formed Vultures Vengeance in 2009 with rather earnest intentions. Simply put, he wanted to assemble a band of like-minded people who had the same passion for classic and somewhat obscure heavy metal as he. From there, they would write original material, record albums and play live shows in their native Italy and across Europe. However, Steele, who serves as the band’s vocalist and lead guitarist, encountered the usual lineup turnover the befall younger bands, making him even question whether Vultures Vengeance would have a career to call their own. Undeterred, Vultures Vengeance finally made their way into the studio in 2015 to record their debut demo, Rising.

 

 

ONKOS

Band:ONKOS
Album:ONKOS
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CDD
Genre:AVANTGARDE DEATH METAL

One of the many projects of San Francisco Bay Area local Robert Woods-LaDue, ONKOS is an experimental metal project that leverages the sounds of chekeré and acoustic guitars for an unusual instrumentation, seeking to expand the palate of what could be interpreted as being “heavy”. Intentionally lacking the unison guitar riffs and blast beats of metal, ONKOS replace them with an abnormal instrumentation of 6 chekeré and a battery of acoustic guitars. Reverberant synths alternate between playing a supportive backdrop and taking over the melodic foreground, adding a slight touch of alienating psychedelia to the whole, while the growled vocals, a cavernous bass and the ultra-heavy patterns of chekeré keep the music firmly to the ground, dialoguing with the guitars, counterbalancing the complexity of the music and emphasizing its heaviest sections.

 

 

ASTRES

Band:EPECTASE
Album:ASTRES
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CD
Genre:COSMIC BLACK METAL

Hailing from France, EPECTASE is the formidable duo of Vague and Avitus, talented musicians with a unique approach to the metal genre, true believers in the superiority of artistic vision and expression over stylistic boundaries. Despite being their first opus, “Astres” is a surprisingly mature effort. Revolving around the concepts of human mortality, space and out-of-body experiences, it lives up to the band's name (épectase means the moving of man towards god) and follows the journey of an individual dwelling into the depths of his own consciousness. Music-wise, EPECTASE skilfully alternates ominous, frantic black metal riffs with hypnotic and groovy mid-sections typical of 70's prog, often leading to epic finales where the intensity never ceases to rise up until it reaches an exploding breaking point. It's the case of the monumental “Enter the Domain of the Solar Sovereign”, which propels the listener into outer space, to face the mysteries of creation.

 

 

THE TELLURIC ASHES OF THE O VRTH IMMEMORIAL GODS

Band:ESOCTRILIHUM
Album:THE TELLURIC ASHES OF THE O VRTH IMMEMORIAL GODS
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CDD
Genre:MYSTIC BLACK DEATH METAL

“The Telluric Ashes of the Ö Vrth Immemorial Gods” is the 4th, most epic and most annihilating album by France's ESOCTRILIHUM, a cryptic entity that is torching the black death metal scene to the ground at great speed. Governed by the even more mysterious Asthâghul, ESOCTRILIHUM have the rare ability to perceive otherworldly, grotesque dimensions of cosmic horror and represent them in a very concrete and convincing way. Their records are an immanence of the absurd: the divine breaks into our material world with a blind destructing frenzy, making it clear that mankind is a mere fading footnote in the highest schemes of existence, nothing more than the delirious idea of a sick god on its death bed. The music of ESOCTRILIHUM pushes the listener through dark tunnels and mystic portals that lead to arcane and hallucinatory places. Asthâghul holds their keys... and yet he's the sore prisoner of his own visions, a reluctant messenger of worlds beyond human comprehension. He's a sort of Abdul Alhazred of metal: like the mad poet of Lovecraftian memory, he has seen what shouldn't be seen, and pours his experiences into majestic compositions where the intricate geometries of riffs and rhythms conjure up chaos and darkness.

FIRST STRIKE

Band:KETOS
Album:FIRST STRIKE
Label:HOSTILE MEDIA
Format:CD
Genre:MELODIC DEATH METAL/METALCORE

Northern Irish metallers Ketos recently signed to Hostile Media and are now on the cusp of releasing their debut album, aptly entitled First Strike. “The title of the album is a reference to that of a nuclear attack”, states guitarist Keith HD. But it’s by no means a concept album, Keith adds that “each song can stand on its own, and each song has something different to say. The lyrics do not follow any formula, some are written metaphorically such as ‘Escape the Chains’ and ‘The Lost Ones’, and some tackle topics head on such as ‘Temptations’ and ‘Harmacist’. A variety of different topics are covered, from the religious oppression and covered up abuse, to addiction and the pharmaceutical industry.” Drawing influence from a broad spectrum of genres and bands such as Parkway Drive and Children of Bodom, Ketos have focused on creating catchy, heavy yet melody driven songs littered with slick and intricate lead guitar work.

DEATHEVOKATION (RE-RELEASE)

Band:REVEL IN FLESH
Album:DEATHEVOKATION (RE-RELEASE)
Label:WAR ANTHEM
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

“This album basically marks the very beginning of our crusade under the banner of REVEL IN FLESH. Many riffs and song fragments date back to my pervious band Immortal Rites. Obsessed by the idea of creating a recording deeply rooted in the vibes of the early 90ies European Death Metal scene “Deathevokation” become one of those albums totally done with a sort of gut feeling! Maggesson produced the album and during the process of 4 months we’ve created as a duo what is today known as REVEL INFLESH’s debut album! The mastering was done by Dan Swanö at UNISOUND studio and it was the very first time we’ve worked with our long lasting partner Juanjo Castellano on artwork duties. Rising out of nowhere this was the right album that came out at the right time when this new wave of German Death Metal was rising. It marks the birth of our Deathkult!” / Haubersson (RIF)

 

 

MANIFESTED DARKNESS (RE-RELEASE)

Band:REVEL IN FLESH
Album:MANIFESTED DARKNESS (RE-RELEASE)
Label:WAR ANTHEM
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

“The band became a five piece after “Deathevokation” and by collecting some live experience we went straight over into the songwriting and recording process of our second strike. “Manifested darkness” basically links the old school vibes from the debut with the more melodic elements that became a sort of trademark on our releases to follow. The titletrack and the outstanding “Rotting in the void” brought some sort of fresh vibe to the REVEL IN FLESH arsenal. Furthermore it was the first album on which Dan Swanö got the job for the mix, too. The production belongs to our most brutal ones up to date. “Manifested Darkness” had a little bit the stigma of being a sort of lost album in our catalogue since it was barely promoted during the release periode, so here’s the second chance for these recordings to be unveiled in a more proper way!” / Haubersson (RIF)
