II POISON GARDEN

Band:SLEEP OF MONSTERS
Album:II POISON GARDEN
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Recorded in an old hilltop villa in Álora, Spain, Sleep of Monsters II : Poison Garden, the long-awaited sophomore album of this unique Finnish band, sees the band venture into even richer, more dramatic and hauntingly beautiful soundscapes, complete with strings and horns… and hooves. Think of Lee Hazlewood getting drunk with the Abba girls in a Metal bar, slurring some of the most spine-chilling, (mostly) true tales of human tragedy and the occult ever heard in rock’n’roll, and you’ll arrive at the moss-covered gates of Poison Garden. It harkens back to the days when Rock albums were larger than life – deceivingly accessible but deviously deep, it is a trip through the dark recesses of Western history and psyche itself, of chtonic myths, bloody faery tales and forgotten archetypes, a treasure chest of nocturnal wonders and forbidden knowledge. SOM marks the return of vocalist and lyricist Ike Vil, the morose mastermind behind the lauded death rockers and occult rock pioneers Babylon Whores. Vil teamed up with guitarist and main songwriter Sami Hassinen, formerly the guitarist of Blake, drummer Pätkä Rantala, who played on HIM’s million-selling debut, and keyboardist Janne Immonen, who has toured extensively with Waltari and Ajattara.

HALLELUJAH

Band:GEVURAH
Album:HALLELUJAH
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

The Canadian religious black metal enigma GEVURAH have slowly been shaping their ritualistic blueprint on virulent spiritual black metal sophistication for several years, giving the duo of GEVURAH consiststing of mastermind X.T. (vocals/all instruments/production) and A.L. (guitars) a reputation as one Canada’s most promising black metal prospects. With their debut full-length album “Hallelujah!” (which follows their well received “Necheshirion” EP from 2013 and features the incredible transcendent art of Denis Forkas), GEVURAH’s awareness will be felt throughout the black metal underground as a formidable and spiritual force within it.

Through “Hallelujah!” X.T. (who aside from playing on most of the album was also responsible for writing “Hallelujah!” in its entirety along with being responsible for recording and mixing it) has unearthed an overwhelming layered black metal masterwork through seven massive epic hymns that encompass a furious, dark, and unforgiving nature to them while at the same time harness a complexity through this vision of otherworldly spiritual black metal levitation.

For fans of Deathspell Omega, Mgla, early Watain, Funeral Mist, Marduk

 

 

STRANGER TO VIOLENCE

Band:PSALM ZERO
Album:STRANGER TO VIOLENCE
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

With their sophomore album “Stranger to Violence”, Psalm Zero takes the aesthetics, poetics, and spirit established with their 2014 debut, “The Drain”, and blows those elements up into an epic work of wide-screen drama. After two years of anticipation built by the gradual episodic release of the Birthright Trilogy of video/cassette singles, as well as a series of personnel shifts, the Queens NY-based outfit led by songwriter/vocalist/producer Charlie Looker finally delivers the next installment of a wholly unique vision of heavy music. Pummeling drum machine, lush swirling synths, razor-sharp guitar (courtesy of former member Andrew Hock), and grinding bass, all provide the dramatic backdrop for Looker’s crooning baritone voice. Comparisons as diverse as Godflesh, Katatonia, and Depeche Mode have all been used in attempts to describe Psalm Zero’s completely singular brand of art-metal.

While “Stranger to Violence” retains, and in some ways even strengthens, Psalm Zero’s roots in extreme metal, these seven new songs feature massive pop hooks, soaring choruses catchier and more emotionally direct than any of the band’s prior work. With harsh vocals now less frequent and only reserved for the highest ecstatic peaks, these melody-driven songs embody an accessible song-craft seldom heard in today’s metal landscape. The production style has evolved dramatically as well. In contrast to the band’s original murkier, more lo-fi texture, this album is a far more crisp, detailed, colorful, three-dimensional sound world of synths, samples, and percussive electronics. Psalm Zero has also expanded lyrically, with Looker extending the scope of his writing outside of the purely personal and existential realm, into a more social, global, real-world critical engagement. Without preaching a strict political agenda, and without constituting a unitary “concept album”, the new record is tied together by several different thematic strands: drug addiction, global financial crisis, Western imperialism, and Jewish identity. All of these themes are interwoven throughout all seven of the songs, interrelating and overlapping differently at different times. The album’s single “Not Guilty” features a video directed by Zev Deans (whose many other credits include Portal and Behemoth), filmed around the alleyways and courthouses of the band’s hometown of New York.

“Stranger to Violence” is a monolithic, cinematic, start-to-finish musical experience with immense crossover potential, which blurs genre boundaries at every turn. As demented as it is socially relevant, this album promises to bring together fans from across multiple different scenes and orientations, and further proves that there is truly nothing out there like Psalm Zero.

 

 

SCARS AND CROSSES

Band:HIGH FIGHTER
Album:SCARS AND CROSSES
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Hamburg-based Sludge Metal / Stoner / Power Doom band HIGH FIGHTER, who already gained high praise in the scene for their self-released demo EP ‘The Goat Ritual’ back in the end of 2014, have just unveiled some new details about their upcoming, first full length album!

COME COLD COME WIND

Band:LOST BOOTS
Album:COME COLD COME WIND
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

Come Cold, Come Wind is the debut release by Lost Boots, who consists of the trio of musicians previously performing as Sweatmaster, plus extra guitarist Tomi Helomaa. Sweatmaster were well on their way to fame earlier this millennium, with a deal with the cult garage label Bad Afro and European tours with The Darkness and the like. Somewhere along the way action rocking garage fare no longer appealead to the sweaty threesome, and they ended up calling it a day, only to resurrect as Lost Boots a couple of years later. "After Sweatmaster we tried playing a bit of everything, even Finnish language prog rock, but nothing seemed to click. It was only after Tomi (Helomaa, guitar) came along that we really had a band together", says guitarist-vocalist Sasu Mykkänen. The band defines Lost Boots as being a more manly, slower playing and a tad more melodic unit than their sweat-covered predecessor. There is an electric 'live' feel to the music, with edges not too heavily polished. It owes as much to classic hard guitar rock as it does to garage rock.

AMEN I

Band:MIKKO JOENSUU
Album:AMEN I
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:SINGER/SONGWRITER

Mikko Joensuu is the kind of singer-songwriter who’l easily stand out from the crowd. His debut album ”Amen 1” taps into the American folk music tradition, and it is all about deep and healing songs which at times give the listener an impression of spending time in quiet, intimate surroundings with people like Townes Van Z andt, Lee Hazlewood or Leonard Cohen. Arrangements are raw but beautiful: mostly just the piano and guitar accompany Mikko’s voice, with pedal steel guitars and soothing string sections paying a visit every now and then. Mikko Joensuu’s grand solo debut is three albums long, and with part 2 appearing in late 2016 and part 3 next spring, it forms the Amen Trilogy. Joensuu, who’s spent some years in the proverbial wilderness after the split of his earlier combo Joensuu 1685, comments on the creation process of his magnum opus: “In the summer of 2012 I built a studio in a small cabin by a lake in northern Finland. I spent a month staring towards the lake, writing and recording. During that time I realized what I had was actually three different albums, all stemming from the same state of mind, expressing various sides to the same story. From the three, Amen 1 is perhaps the most fragile. It’s an effort to find balance between great sadness and beauty, and to understand the very strange state when one’s mind is close to collapse and yet at the same time more alive than ever."

CATACLYSM

Band:OSCILLOTRON
Album:CATACLYSM
Label:CINEPLOIT
Format:CD
Genre:Cinematic Music

CD (in LP style Wallet 500 ltd.) 

"Cataclysm" is the new album by Oscillotron, the solo project of David Johansson (frontman of Swedish doom metal band Kongh, as well as touring/session member of Cult Of Luna and Switchblade respectively). The album is the follow-up to the acclaimed debut album "Eclipse" (2013), a soundscape reminiscent of old horror influenced prog rock fleshed out into an ambient dream state. While the main vision and atmosphere from the debut is largely kept intact, the new album "Cataclysm" is in many ways a vast progression from its predecessor. Made primarily with analog synthesizers, mellotron and drum machines, "Cataclysm" is a versatile, yet uniform experience where the character of early electronic music meets the unsettling and dark resonance of horror and sci-fi movie scores of the 70's and early 80's. The 7-track album was written and produced during 2014-2016 at the Oscillotron studio in Stockholm, Sweden, and mastering was taken care of by Karl Daniel Lidén at Tri-Lamb Studios. "Cataclysm" will see a worldwide CD/LP/Digital release on May 27th via Cineploit Records

Album:HOLLOW GHOST / ROCHELLE SALT
Label:MEGA DODO
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

Octopus Syng was formed in the summer of 1999 by the band’s guitarist and vocalist Jaire Pätäri. Drawing on the spirits of psychedelic innovators from both the USA (Velvet Underground, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane) and the UK (early Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Marc Bolan), Octopus Syng play exquisitely crafted songs that range from warm and sunny acoustic psych pop to acid tinged folk songs with hypnotic Kraut rock grooves and catchy jazzy rhythms. Gluing all the pieces together what you get is a band that plays a unique blend of neo‐classical psychedelic rock.

Hollow Ghost/Rochelle Salt is the band’s second album for Mega Dodo. It’s as strange, dark and melancholic as their previous album and every bit as good. Highlights include ‘Woman’, ‘Surrealistic Room’ and ‘Melancholy of Delight’.

JAZZ LIISA 1

Album:JAZZ LIISA 1
Label:SVART
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

Never bootlegged and known up until now only to a few faithful servants (and largely thought to have been lost for ever), these sessions offer a hitherto unrivalled look into the state of Finnish jazz and progressive rock between the years 1972-1977. Imagine if the sessions recorded by John Peel had only recently been discovered, and you get an idea of the cultural weight of what is being brought into the light of day here. Originally recorded as broadcasts by YLE (the national radio service Yleisradio, ”the Finnish BBC”), the thirty-four Liisankatu sessions are a genuine who's who of Finnish prog and jazz. Interestingly, anyone with even basic knowledge of the era's biggest bands will recognize familiar names at play within these obscure bands. As such, these sessions provide the missing link between jazz and prog, explaining through spirited performances - and largely unknown collaborations - the instrumental prowess and dexterity of these players and bands. What's best, these sessions show these exceptional bands playing for the moment in front of a hundred strong studio audience, not weighed down by the tedium of studio recording, and thus somehow miraculously managing to capture the best of both worlds: studio performances in front of a live audience.

As such, these sessions provide the missing link between jazz and prog, explaining through spirited performances - and largely unknown collaborations - the instrumental prowess and dexterity of these players and bands. What's best, these sessions show these exceptional bands playing for the moment in front of a hundred strong studio audience, not weighed down by the tedium of studio recording, and thus somehow miraculously managing to capture the best of both worlds: studio performances in front of a live audience.

Album:POP LIISA 1 AND 2
Label:SVART

Never bootlegged and known up until now only to a few faithful servants (and largely thought to have been lost for ever), these sessions offer a hitherto unrivalled look into the state of Finnish jazz and progressive rock between the years 1972-1977. Imagine if the sessions recorded by John Peel had only recently been discovered, and you get an idea of the cultural weight of what is being brought into the light of day here.

THE STRANGER RIDES TONIGHT

Band:DADDY LONG LEGS
Album:THE STRANGER RIDES TONIGHT
Label:FOLC RECORDS
Format:Vinyl 7 Inch
Genre:Garage Punk

"The Stranger Rides Tonight" is a colossal tune with that mix that only they can do nowadays, of an harmonica with a classic blues style, an awesome guitar with bluesy riffs in a Lightnin' Hopkins style but with a rockandroller and garage sound, a primitive rhythm and a very powerful howling voice, that connects them with the more bluesy Flamin' Groovies (Roy Loney’s era) and the crazier Howlin' Wolf. The song was recorded in their last Spanish tour, at GuitarTown Recordings, by Hendrik Röver (Los Deltonos), and the post-production was made by John Epperly in Brooklyn. The B-Side has a tremendous version of the classic from their first album, "Evil Eye", recorded live on a radio station (Born to Be Bad Radio Sant Boi), where is not hard to imagine Screamin' Jay Hawkins, with Leadbelly on guitar, with Abner Jay making the rhythm, and again the great Howling Wolf on harmonica and backing vocals. A gem!

THE SOUND OF CONFUSION BLOG - "Born in the UK, Murphy's been living in Perth, Australia since 2010 where he studied sound engineering. As Gravy Murphy he's released two EPs so far, one in 2013 and one last year. There's a ten‐track album, 'The World Is Your Moisture', ready to go, and the first song taken from it is 'The Many Hands'. He's made here has a retro vibe running through it. There are hisses that could be from an early Kraftwerk record, as well as the warming hum of antique synths all through this piece. A steady stomp of a beat keeps everything grounded and the industrial feel is dampened a little by the more welcoming additions of various melodic touches..."

BRAIN DAMAGE FEAT RAS MICHAEL

Band:BRAIN DAMAGE
Album:BRAIN DAMAGE FEAT RAS MICHAEL
Label:JARRING EFFECTS
Format:Vinyl EP
Genre:Reggae/Dub/Ska

The first idea of the project was to work with the famous 60/70’s generation of creators of reggae music and by extension, dub music. Thus we can find on the opus some great legends: Horace Andy Kiddus I, Winston Mac Anuff, Willi Williams, and finally Ras Michael. In this 45 T,we celebrate the collaboration with Dean Ras Michael. He was for many years one of the worldwide ambassadors of the Nyabinghi traditions. Furthermore, he still captivates us with his spiritual vocals and his unique percussion interventions. His performance on the song Walk the Walk is filled with emotions and showed a remarkable mastery of the genre and its codes. During this song, he was able to travel to the musical universe proposed by Brain Damage; the result was unique and refreshing.

A Single Rose" is the debut EP by Hheaven, the collaborative project of Morgan Enos (Hollow Sunshine, Other Houses) and Bryant Keith Bayhan (.paperman).

Written together one summer by producer/instrumentalist Bayhan crafting full-fledged compositional landscapes from lyricist/vocalist Enos' skeletal demos, the whirling, psychedelic songs of Hheaven are alternately lacerating and surreal, packed with addictive melodies, tirelessly operating in the service of the creative mind.

Trasformazioni is the first work of Daniela Savoldi, cello solo. Synthesis of classical influences, pop, jazz, contemporary and oriental, writing music embraces the idea of improvisation overlapping emotions and different moods among them. The real thrust that drives this work is to tell and collect the steps of experiences, finally saying a clear point of crossing. A mixed in crescendo of colors and signs; an entire reworked from her only and one loop station who could follows and drives dancers, suggests, hides or reveals walks in the desert, eastern crossroads, walking animals, dissonances, surprises, people, dreams. It was urgent a say where she is and who she is just for now. The album is RIYL Rachel Grimes.

 

 

kaouenn

Band:KAOUENN
Album:kaouenn
Label:African Tape
Format:CD
Genre:Avantgarde/Electronic

An owl with a Breton name (i.e. cauán) explores the depths of psychic reality, the complementarity of opposites. It’s looking for a synthesis, the breaking of borders, a peaceful crossbreeding, suspended in the darkness where he lives and the light of wisdom that guides him into obscurity. Newborn, already mature, there are troubling questions: is there a real ambivalence in realism and mysticism? and between (self)destruction and hope? Kaouenn grew close to the Adriatic Sea, far from great European metropolis where it’s migrating, searching for an artistic Enlightenment like a new belle époque. The northwest borders are its horizon, the territories beaten by wind and tides, where the sunsets let you dream life sharing beyond the sea and open the doors to the darkness. It’s a creature that lives through the vibrations of the night with a teenager’s zest and naivety. It expresses itself in electronics with maximalist attitude which has its roots in a muddy and obscure ground: blues echoes, new wave rigor, trip hop hypnosis and kraut experimentalism. A baritone voice. Anxiety and seduction.

Album:THE ETERNAL DRIFTS CANTICLES
Label:HEAD RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Arisen in 2010 from the fertile scene of Montpellier, France, VERDUN made a name in the realm of slow and heavy music on the basis of a simple three-tracks demo, leaving a strong impression on every witness of the band’s thunderous live shows. With a line-up solidified after a few european tours and opening slots for forefathers such as Electric Wizard, Eyehategod or YOB, the band finally delivers their long-awaited debut album, mixed and mastered by Tad Doyle. "The Eternal Drift’s Canticles" is the fruit of three years of crafting; far from simple amp-worship, the band excels at creating memorable tracks with their science of instant-classic riffs. A richer background emanate from these guitars, able to tint their sludge/doom roots with metallic hardcore toughness or burden-of-the-world melodies. Another strong component of VERDUN’s trademark sound comes from these charismatic vocals, switching between echoed screams from outer space, spoken words or mournful clean vocals. With an arid, heavy as hell sound, "The Eternal Drift’s Canticles" is a 55-minutes dark and painful procession that transcends the heritage of too-often codified scenes, running away from any form of memorabilia. FOR FANS OF : Amenra, Neurosis, Electric Wizard, Burning Witch, Cult Of Luna, YOB, Eyehategod…

Zhaoze is from Guangzhou, China. They have built an inimitable sound, blending Chinese classical aesthetics with modern Western rock.

Though it is China's oldest traditional string instrument, Zhaoze utilizes it in a modern and innovative way, by using the cello bow and distorting the chords, giving the instrument an original voice and a fresh energy. Among other notable and unique instruments adding to the richness and distinctiveness of style are a 5-string bass, xiao (a vertically-played bamboo flute) and a glockenspiel.

OUT OF NOWHERE

Band:JOE EGAN
Album:OUT OF NOWHERE
Label:SIREENA
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Folk

Born in 1949, Joe Egan already played along with his school friend Gerry Rafferty in various smaller British bands in the Sixties before they 1972 then succeeded with the creation of the folk-rock duo Stealers Wheel. With the surprise hit "Stuck in the Middle with You", written by Egan and Rafferty, they were able to place the song in the top ten of the American and British charts. Rafferty then left the band, leaving Egan the role of bandleader. But even before the next recordings Rafferty returned to the band, which meant that all other musicians got out except Egan. The second album "Ferguslie Park " therefore was recorded by Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan as a duo with accompanying musicians. Two minor single hits were released, "Everyone's Agreed That Everything Will Turn Out Fine" and "Star". Thereafter, the partnership between Egan and Raffety did not longer seem to work. Before the release of the third album "Right or Wrong", sluggish sales and artistic differences led to the split of Stealers Wheel in 1975. The two songwriters went separate ways. As both were still bound to complicated contracts, for three years they could not publish further recordings. So in 1979 Joe Egan released his first solo album "Out Of Nowhere", a number of top-class studio musicians like Gallagher & Lyle, Henry Spinetti, Dave Markee, Phil Palmer and Alan Parker accompanied him during the recordings. The critics were enthusiastic, especially in Germany ( "best folk-rock album of the year", "better than Raffertys debut album"). But the harmonious mix of folk and rock had very difficult in high times of Punk and New Wave. The single releases "Back on the Road" and "Out of Nowhere" didn't make it to the international charts. As Gerry Rafferty solo had struggling with similar problems, it came quite quickly to a reunion of Stealers Wheel. But the train had left.

 

 

TRAVELLER

Band:BRIAN PARRISH
Album:TRAVELLER
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Brian Parrish- composer, singer, guitar player performed in the Star Club Hamburg with his band The Londoners as the Beatles did. They were a popular attraction. Before this he had accompanied original rock n roll artiste, Gene Vincent (Be Bop Alula). He later recorded also with Jerry Lee Lewis, another pioneer. Brian Parrish´s songwriting credits included hits for Johnny Hallyday, who was hugely popular in France. His “pop” credentials included songs for Dave Dee, Dozy Beaky Mick &Titch, Alvin Stardust and others. He played on hits by Medicine Head, albums by Jon Lord, Graeme Edge and others.Together with Paul Gurvitz he formed Parrish & Gurvitz. Sir George Martin produced their acclaimed albums as the Beatles were disintegrating. Hailed as “the new Beatles” Parrish recalls it as “a complement certainly, but the kiss of death!” He formed the band Badger with Yes keyboard man, Tony Kaye. Their first album recorded live in concert (One Live Badger) was widely acclaimed and achieved chart success in the USA. This earned Parrish his prog- rock credentials, although his next solo effort “Love On My Mind” had a “blue eyed soul” funk flavour. Changing direction seems to have been a hallmark of his career. He guested with friend, Eric Burdons band shortly thereafter, and over the following years concentrated more on writing / producing. Performing began to play a secondary role. So it might have remained, but he returned to full time performing in 2004 when he was invited to perform in Hamburg as a special guest for a Star Club reunion concert, with great success. His life changed direction and he now lives and works in Germany. He describes it as a series of musical journeys embracing numerous styles, reflecting many facets of the human experience. It is the “last concept album!” he says, but absolutely different to the Gothic pseudo classical style which typified the genre. “Each experience which contributes to our individual story is a mini journey, you could say. In the end we are all travellers. This is the simple theme which unifies the diverse moods of the album” TRAVELLER is presented with a 24 page booklet with photo illustrations along with lyrics.

Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

1969 formed, IHRE KINDER decided to connect songs in German lyrics with rock music. Given the lack of acceptance among record labels - rock music at that time was exclusively reserved English singing bands - they produced their first LP IHRE KINDER 1969 themselves (supported by Jonas Porst). In 1970 the band signed with the newly established Munich record company Kuckuck and produced the album "Leere Hände" (not without a precaution to make an English version for all pieces). Kuckuck went on with the next albums by IHRE KINDER untiel the split in 1973. The songs of the band are known for their complex but also engaged socially critical texts on topics such as substance abuse, apartheid, detention and xenophobia.

"Werdohl" was the fourth album and appeared in 1971. For Germany's largest circulation music magazine Music Express Werdohl was "the best pop album, which has been published in the German language". This great album will appear after 45 years again on colored 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, for the first time in gatefold, limited.

 

 

TERRA INCOGNITA - CD

Band:TRIBUTE
Album:TERRA INCOGNITA - CD
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Terra Incognita was the fourth album TRIBUTE made. Originally released in 1990 it also became their final album. Prior to this CD-production the group had undergone a radical restructuring. Pierre Moerlen, Josef Rhedin and Åke Ziedén had left the band. Those that remained from the earlier incarnation of TRIBUTE were the siblings Gideon, Lena and Nina Andersson, and Dag Westling. In musical terms this album represents a return to a more epic symphonic style, and the individual tracks are characterized by long instrumental passages and orchestration on a grand scale. The overdubs were numerous, including various stringed instruments, vocals, synths, drum sets, orchestral percussion, and many other philharmonic orchestra instruments, played by members of the Norrköping Symphonic Orchestra, with which TRIBUTE had joined forces on several occasions back in the 1980s. The Swedish symphonic rockband TRIBUTE was founded 1982 by the two musicians/composers Gideon Andersson and Josef (formerly Christer) Rhedin. The band created four albums - ”New Views”, ”Breaking Barriers”, ”Live” and ”Terra Incognita”. ”New Views” was the first album and was the one that gave the group their breakthrough in Germany and Sweden in the middle of the nineteen eighties. TRIBUTE toured continuously between 1983 and 1986, and established a large following among the symphonic/progressive rock lovers. TRIBUTE'S music is mostly instrumental. It is focused on rhythm, intricate riffs and melodies. In the orchestration there is plenty of classical percussion, such as tubular bells, vibraphone, marimba and timpani. There is also a strong impact from the keyboard section mastered by Josef Rhedin. Another significant aspect of TRIBUTE is that all musicians were multi-instrumentalists, which made a significant impression on their audience.

 

 

HELLFRIENDS

Band:DEMON BITCH
Album:HELLFRIENDS
Label:SKOL
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

DEMON BITCH is a traditional Heavy Metal band based out of Michigan, USA, with a taste for the strange and obscure realms of the genre. The history of the band dates back to 2011, when three long time friends came forth to cement their breed of Heavy Metal with their self titled 3-song demo, which was released in 2012. The line-up was promptly solidified with the integral addition of the second guitarist, Solon Saton, which allowed the group to play various live shows, and a US East Coast tour in 2013. In 2014, the complete line-up came forth with a follow-up to their demo, an EP titled "Death Is Hanging...", which was released by Dying Victims Productions in Europe and Evil Prevails Productions in Indonesia.

The next, and greatest chapter yet is their debut full-length entitled "Hellfriends", which is to be released in June of 2016. A genuine love for the Hard and Heavy, from 80’s legends of the underground such as MERCYFUL FATE, SATAN and ANGEL WITCH, to 70’s Progressive and Hard Rock, provided a foundation for the band to stand upon, but it’s the intangible inspiration of fantasy, camaraderie and the unknown, which sculpts the rare sounds by these Hellfriends of Demon Bitch.

FALSE HIGHS TRUE LOWS

Band:PLEBEIAN GRANDSTAND
Album:FALSE HIGHS TRUE LOWS
Label:BASEMENT APES INDUSTRIES
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

After the highly acclaimed and imposing Lowgazers in 2014, PLEBEIAN GRANDSTAND returns with another milestone. 'False highs, true lows' stands alone with a music elegantly moving from pure black metal, sludge and noise. The repeating dark guitar harmonies, jackhammer drumming, and the fierce unrelenting screams are backed with a top-notch production. Not exactly the black metal cave-dwelling kind, to say the least. It suits the album perfectly and widen the ferocity to a higher level. Departing definitely from their post-hardcore debut, PLEBEIAN GRANDSTAND now dwells in the international extreme landscape. This is all about restrained fury and intimately suffocating layers of harmonies.

BEYOND.

Band:BOSQUE
Album:BEYOND.
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

DM moved from nowhere to even more isolated places and created a new BOSQUE opus: “Beyond” follows down the paths walked by “Passage” and “Nowhere” but opens up new perspectives – not only when it comes to names. Bosque (port./span.: Forest, the forest with his legends as perception of the north) and DM lead us to a new journey in the deep of his world of thought. We leave the present world and process with a mystic and surreal travel. Bosque success again with their new album to put a mark being a guide of (Funeral) Doom, but this section of music-genre is too small to define all the powerful essence of "Beyond". A unique sound, that creates a atmosphere that search it kind while drag and push the listener at the same time. Bosque call us the rain, send us into a paradoxon of our own feelings only to open us the gate to the otherworld. The band sticks to the strictly analogue style of recording and thus the very natural sound is preserved. The fog created by the guitars on “Nowhere” clears a little bit, the choral style is more present: Here, “Beyond”, lies insight. An insight to emptiness and melancholy, but also aspiration and a subtle enchantment. This is not a music for trend-followers, no worship of senseless dreamings, Bosque is the audial melancholy of souls. The new album comes on noble and heavy vinyl edition, inclusive a poster in A2 format. Also available as digipak edition and digital download.

 

 

FIREBORN

Band:CRIMSON FIRE
Album:FIREBORN
Label:PITCH BLACK
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Originally formed in 2004, Greek heavy metallers CRIMSON FIRE are a band that remains faithful to the passion and glory of 80’s heavy metal. The sound is there, the licks and kicks and riffs are there, along with high-pitched vocals and powerful and melodic music, all blended nicely together to make you want to raise your fist way up high into the air and headbang like there’s no tomorrow! With a number of notable performances listed on their CV, including the support slot during a mini tour of Canadian band Anvil, CRIMSON FIRE have quickly gained a large number of loyal followers and in 2010 released their debut album (“Metal is Back”) which is now sold out.

“Fireborn” (their sophomore release) is about re-inventing one’s self. The idea of the circular process of life is represented by the mythical creature “Phoenix” and through its prism we look at different aspects of this interminable process, be it youth, love, revenge, personal struggle, politics, new beginnings as well as endings, etc. It symbolizes man's power to face and overcome any kind of difficulty in order to emerge even stronger. With 12 tracks clocking in at 42 minutes and an average song length of around 3.5 minutes this is an album filled with catchy and “no BS” songs that will simply make you reach for that leather jacket and pick up your air guitar while it’s blasting through the speakers!

HAIR OF THE DOG

Band:MONUMENT
Album:HAIR OF THE DOG
Label:ROAR
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

UK’s finest, New Wave of British Heavy Metal heroes MONUMENT return with the follow-up to “Renegades” (MGR Music, 2014), their sophomore full length album, “Hair of the Dog”, which is their best musical creation up-to-date. Memorable guitar riffs and twin guitar leads, catchy and powerful tenor vocals, performed by talented frontman Peter Ellis (ex-White Wizzard) and a tight-as-fuck rhythm section that brings in mind the Iron Maiden and Judas Priest legacy are the main elements of the MONUMENT sound, but only few of the reasons why one should get this album. Deriving from the glorious past of heavy metal music but still being firmly rooted in the present (as previously stated by Spanish magazine “Heavy Rock”), “Hair of the Dog” sounds fresh and updated, being also suitable for fans of the heavy-metal-revival movement of NWOTHM and of bands such as Enforcer, White Wizzard, Cauldron and Elm Street. empowered by the slick, powerful, but still a bit retro-loving production of acknowledged extreme metal producer, Scott Atkins, MONUMENT’s new creation is already a nominee for heavy metal album of the year 2016. MONUMENT is undoubtedly one of the rising forces of the modern-day traditional heavy metal sound and “Hair of the Dog” is the living proof.
