HEROES

Band:ARTHEMIS
Album:HEROES
Label:Helvete and Hate
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

ARTHEMIS have always been a full on surprise metal band. ‘Heroes’ is an exhilarating high powered metal experience. So much so, the artistic imprint defines their career to date, as one of the most fresh and the cutting edge of metal music. “This record, in terms of lyrics is our answer to the odds in a teenager or adult daily life, musically we want to give high powered metal sound with a modern approach and a strong hint of positive energy ” states guitar hero Andy. But it’s the band alchemy in great arrangements between vocals, guitar work, bass and drums, a good karma atmosphere and steady groove, which is making up of the language Arthemis uses for a dialect. But volume speaks louder than words. The album sets itself perfectly in the modern metal world, with well dosed melodies yet the power that bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Megadeth managed to achieve. The music of Arthemis is perfectly balanced with such high demanding metal community, therefore worth indulging in.

“Arthemis…primary purpose is to win over… Hard Rock Hell crowed. They do it with ease, motoring through… slick and fiery powercum- thrash metal and charming all and sundry with big smiles and bigger riffs” - Dom Lawson, Geoff Burton and Scott Rowley - Metal Hammer / Classic Rock Magazine

 

 

LEAD YOUR CHILDREN TO THE SKY

Band:MIDGAR
Album:LEAD YOUR CHILDREN TO THE SKY
Label:ROCKET TOWN
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Hailing from their hometown of Aldershot, Midgar have promoted themselves up and down the country with a strong sense of what they are looking to achieve, doing so on their own terms and winning fans at every new show, leading to support slots with bands such as Deaf Havana, Lower Than Atlantis, Canterbury and Fei Comodo. Now Midgar are building on this momentum, with the release of their new, self produced mini-album “Lead Your Children To The Sky”, which is sure to show just how quickly they are evolving in to what has to be a band to watch for the new decade.

 

 

SOL

Band:ALTAR OF PLAGUES
Album:SOL
Label:RADAR SWARM
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

In 2009, Altar of plagues released their first album via profound lore. "White Tomb" was described by a number of critics as one of 2009's best and most exciting releases (and was featured in Decibel Magazines Best of 2009 list). Since then the band toured extensively throughout Europe (from small clubs to acclaimed roadburn festival), released an EP on Roadburn and just signed to Candlelight.

Before that, their first EP “Sol”, originally released by the band themselves in 2008 in a limited run and quickly sold out, started it all. By heavy demand, “Sol” has finally been re-issued with revised digipack artwok via radar swarm (year of no light, omega massif, rosetta, time to burn…).

 

 

1/DOG DAYS

Band:GOATSNAKE
Album:1/DOG DAYS
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:DOUBLE VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Rising from the ashes of stoner/doom legends Obsessed during the small genre's most fertile post‐Kyuss period, Goatsnake helped define southern California's low‐and‐slow metal scene during the late nineties. With releases on Hydrahead Records, Frank Kozik's famed Man's Ruin, and finally settlingly with the mighty Southern Lord Records (co‐owned by guitarist Greg Anderson), Goatsnake could be considered one of the quintessential stoner/doom bands of their time. 1

80 gram gold vinyl European version contains  the debut full‐length album ("1"), 7” (Man of light) and EP ("Dog Days) from cult doom rock juggernaut Goatsnake. Now this collection of the first Snake recordings is available on vinyl for the first time! Beautiful gatefold jacket featuring detailed liner notes and rare photos of the band from the late nineties.

 

 

STONE AXE 11

Band:STONE AXE
Album:STONE AXE 11
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Once more a great trip back in time; sounds of Thin Lizzy, The Free and AC/DC are gathered together again on this second album by Stone Axe. The debut album of this band, which was loaded with top quality early seventies rock with balls rocked a lot of socks off. The debut album was kind of a hobby project of Tony Reed and Dru Brinkerhoff, who could freely express some nostalgic creativity. Every riff and vocal line felt very intense and straight from the heart. Again, with tracks like ‘We Know It’s Still Rock ‘n’Roll’ they bring a great mix of AC/DC and The Sweet, and the song ‘On With The Show’ could also have appeared on a Black Crowes album. Also obvious influences of Thin Lizzy (‘Those Were The Golden Days’), The Free (‘Live For The Day’ and ‘Aint Gonna Miss It’) and even Procol Harum (‘Turned To Stone’ could also have been called ‘Turned To Whiter Shade Of Pale’) are available on Stone Axe II.

CHALLENGER

Band:KNUT
Album:CHALLENGER
Label:DIVISION
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

This album is the one that started everything. Matching Converge’s ultimate rage with Botch’s sense of details, combining Neurosis’ dark atmosphere with Kiss It Goodbye’s tense virulence, “Challenger” has managed to get rid of all those influences, transcending them to become nothing less than a genuine myth. This album is also the one that allowed many other Swiss bands to start believing in themselves, realizing what is possible to achieve. This record is not only a record, this is the birth certificate of Swiss ability in the field of extreme and deranged music.

"From the opening crackle of “Whacked Out” to the epic closure of “March” you’ll find yourself sporting a similar face to when you first heard “Jane Doe” or “We are the Romans”. This is sharper than any Swiss Army Knife." - Terrorizer

TIL YOUR FEET BLEED

Band:JAMES APOLLO
Album:TIL YOUR FEET BLEED
Label:NO ALTERNATIVE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Til Your Feet Bleed was largely written under a tree in the Utah Canyons, within the shadows of notorious train and bank robber, Butch Cassidy’s favoured hideout. Informed by the imagery of William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor’s Southern prose, Apollo’s music also recalls Ennio Morricone’s spaghetti-western themes, all grizzled with a Tom Waitsian fervour, and the lush, warming tones of Richard Hawley. It’s a curious combination of inflences, but it just works.

Opening on the clip-clop lament of ‘Oil On A Trashcan Fire’ (a sound recalled on ‘No East No West’), Apollo introduces his cultured croon on ‘For Now’, a solitary song that cries bitter of isolation whilst the beautiful optimism of ‘How Hard’ is imbued with a familiar jazz-informed waltz, tipping a travelled Stetson to Charles Mingus. The 11 tracks of ‘Til Your Feet Bleed take in the emotions, both fleeting and fundamental that document the bittersweet, cinematic legacy of Apollo’s ongoing journey - Americana at its most romantically sunset-strewn and desolate.

 

 

DIRTY REGGAE

Band:THE AGGROLITES
Album:DIRTY REGGAE
Label:AXE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Reggae/Dub/Ska

This album is Axe recording artists’ The Aggrolites hard to find debut album!

This recording comes off so original many have mistaken it for actual classic reggae cuts from the likes of the Trojan or Studio One vaults. While serving justice to the originals, The Aggros still maintain a distinctive raw and dirty sound that has people all over poppin' their trunks and funkin' their bumpers.

A distinctively LA sound, the Aggros have put west coast reggae on the map, going on to record 3 albums for the Hellact label and touring extensively throughout Europe and the US.

SPLENDOR OF SORROW

Band:EASTER MONKEYS
Album:SPLENDOR OF SORROW
Label:SMOG VEIL
Format:CD/DVD
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

It’s generally accepted amongst the Cleveland cognoscenti that Easter Monkeys were the best rock ‘n’ roll band calling the city home in the early to mid 1980’s. Rock ‘n’ roll in the sense of the Ghoulardi-inspired hybrid that Cleveland is known for. The band was fronted by ex-Kneecappers Chris Yarmock, bassist Charlie Ditto, with Jim Jones (Pere Ubu, Home and Garden, Mirrors) amazingly creepy guitar work and Linda Hudson’s basement beat. This release collects up the band’s lone LP, comp tracks, unreleased stuff and a DVD of a 1982 gig.

“We just decided to make some noise with no real idea of what we were doing. We certainly didn’t think it would turn into a band, and we were really surprised when people kept coming to see us!” –Jim Jones, Your Flesh

 

 

RODE HARD PUT AWAY WET

Band:FACE VALUE
Album:RODE HARD PUT AWAY WET
Label:SMOG VEIL
Format:CD / DVD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

Just about every great Cleveland hardcore band from 1988 onward revolved around Tony Erba or Dwid. Prior to stints in H-100’s and 9 Shocks Terror (and Smog Veil acts Stepsister and Amps2Eleven), Tony Erba delivered the goods with Face Value. The band played a defining role in the hardcore scene of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, turning out furious tunes at breakneck tempos and whipping crowds nationwide into a fine froth before calling it quits in 1993. This career spanning retrospective containing 31 songs plus an insane DVD of various live performances, photos and whatnot proves once again that you can’t go wrong with Cleveland. Artwork by crazed BMX bandit Ryan Humphrey.

“Cleveland's finest needs no introduction in DIY hardcore, from the first generation Clevo-core of FACE VALUE to his place in the rise of chaotic, volatile hardcore in the 90's. When the Kids were sitting cross-legged on VFW Hall floors, Erba & Co. were throwing hammers at them with bands like H100s and 9 SHOCKS TERROR. Erba saved my life, showed me a lot of really sick snuff, and once staple gunned a hat to my head.” –Chris Colohan, High Anxiety

 

 

BEFORE OBSCURITY: THE BUSHFLOW TAPES

Band:TIN HUEY
Album:BEFORE OBSCURITY: THE BUSHFLOW TAPES
Label:SMOG VEIL
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

Spawning in one way or another both the Waitresses and The Black Keys should count for something. If not, than this release should put Tin Huey in its place as a progenitor of the quirky Akron sound later expounded by both Devo and The Bizzaros alike. This release collects up the bands earliest recordings, spanning the years 1974-1979, including the first ever recordings of the lineup that became known as The Waitresses. For fans, as Robert Christgau describes in the liner notes, of fancy key changes, gut-swooping tempo shifts, elaborate arrangements, and meters you figure out on a calculator.

“Tin Huey's blend of blues, jazz and progressive rock is hilariously unique, offering up a warped vision of Middle America.” --Trouser Press

 

 

TERMINAL

Band:PISTOL WHIP
Album:TERMINAL
Label:SMOG VEIL
Format:CD / DVD
Genre:Punk / Proto Punk

Pistol Whip was the first ever punk band from Erie, PA, and their lone 7-inch on Endangered Species, released in 1977, is a scorcher and a prized collectible. The band moved to Chicago in 1978, and recorded a 10-song demo, also included here. The band later changed their name to The Swingers, whose output included a sought-after 7-inch and an appearance on Twin Tone’s ‘Big Hits Of Mid-America’ compilation. The DVD contains wild 8mm footage from back in the day plus interviews, photos, and more! 

“During their Midwest dates last winter, Pistol Whip was blamed for everything from starting a riot in Linesville, Iowa, to polluting Lake Erie.” –Prairie Sun, 1978

Album:PSYCH BITES VOLUME 2
Label:Past And Present
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Psych Bites Volume Two throws up a melting pot of twisted mantras and wide-eyed rockers that are almost religiously defined by the volume of their fuzz boxes. This global garden of unearthly delights hosts a variety of rare species including the last ever mod boogaloo from 1970, presented by the honorary Spencer Mac and the pure psychosis of Decca’s African warriors Ofo and the Black Company with their distorted take on strumming the guitar taking on new levels of hysteria for lovers of acid, fuzz and punk.

 

 

EVERYTHING TAKES FOREVER

Band:PEACHFUZZ
Album:EVERYTHING TAKES FOREVER
Label:BOMBED OUT
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Heart-on-sleeve indie power pop from three Welsh lads who grew up listening to The Replacements, Big Star and Crazy Horse. Everything Takes Forever is the second album from Peachfuzz, following on from their 2008 debut. Take the songsmithery of Bandwagonesque-era Teenage Fanclub, the lyrical finesse of The Hold Steady and rough it up with vocalist Adam Jones' "Mike Ness-meets-fellow-Welshman-Kelly Jones'" croon and you'll have some idea of where this band are coming from. Everything Takes Forever is unashamedly a summer album with its ballsy yet crafty pop hooks and angst-ridden lyrics that will conjure up an image of teenage life in the Valleys. Adam sings about lost love, teenage excesses and hardcore shows with all the authenticity of someone who's been there. It's no wonder Ben Deily from The Lemonheads called Peachfuzz "So damned brilliant".

For fans of The Replacements, Early Soul Asylum, The Gaslight Anthem, The Hold Steady, Lemonheads Etc

DO YOU WANT POWER

Band:THE ETTES
Album:DO YOU WANT POWER
Label:TAKE ROOT
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

This garage-rock power trio answers their own question with an emphatic “Yes!” on their sharp and energetic third release. Lead singer and guitarist Coco Hames is a potent blend of sass and venom. She plays the coy temptress one moment and the jilted vixen the next as the airtight rhythm section hammers the beat home behind her. Brief, punchy, fuzzed-out rockers like “Red In Tooth and Claw,” “I Can’t Be True,” “Walk Out That Door,” and “No Home” are the foundation of the album and the band’s sound, but they know how to ease off the throttle, too. The loping, nearly country strummer “Love Lies Bleeding” is as catchy as anything here, while the piano-with-cello ballad “Keep Me In Flowers” closes the album on a surprisingly vulnerable and touching note. In the end, this variety, along with the crispness of the songwriting, makes Do You Want Power their most impressive release yet. - iTunes

NOWHERE NIGHTS

Band:KASEY ANDERSON
Album:NOWHERE NIGHTS
Label:RED RIVER
Format:CD
Genre:Alt-Country / Americana

Kasey Anderson's latest full length release, Nowhere Nights, is filled with the same brand of evocative, literate lyricism that marked the gifted songwriter's critically-lauded albums, Dead Roses and The Reckoning - earning Anderson widespread praise from the likes of Paste, No Depression, The Onion A/V Club and many others - but after surveying the decaying American social and political landscape, Anderson has turned his gaze inward to focus on a more familiar subject: himself. Nowhere Nights, which Anderson describes as 'equal parts charge, benediction, apology and indictment,' finds the gifted writer chronicling his own personal and artistic coming of age, conveyed with grace and gravity over the course of eleven songs about the things people carry and the things they leave behind.

“Anderson's straightforward narrative songwriting slots nicely into the hallowed Townes Van Zandt/Steve Earle/Guy Clark Texas tradition.” – Paste

“A versatile and confident singer and songwriter.” – No Depression

She's appeared on Leno and Letterman, and toured with Neko throughout the U.S.A., Europe and the U.K. Ms. Case returns the favor multiple times on Visqueen's Message To Garcia, and joins a spectacular cast of collaborators - from The Fastbacks to pedal steel/banjo genius Jon Rauhouse to The Long Winters. The result is a killer, super fun sing-a-long record with gigantic guitars, gangs of handclaps, unexpected flugelhorns, and the exalted blessing of cello. Assembled and produced by Rachel Flotard with her King Me cohort, Barrett Jones (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) on her new independent record label, Local 638 Records, inspired by her beloved and recently departed dad's New York City Steamfitters union. Message To Garcia (11 tracks mixed by Young Fresh Fellow and Fastback, Kurt Bloch) is the distinguished elder sister to two previous Northwest album favorites: King Me (2003) and Sunset On Dateland (2004).

"The band is so fun; it sounds a little like Neko Case and Joan Jett, and there's nothing wrong with that." STEPHEN THOMPSON, NPR naming the album "The Biggest Suprise of the Year"

"If Visqueen were a major label baby band, modern-rock radio stations would be all over this record like static cling. King Me is royal fun, a high-speed, sugar 'n'steel picnic from start to finish." DAVID FRICKE, ROLLINGSTONE

Label:HAUNTED HOTEL
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Grindcore

One of the first goregrind bands in history returns! Corpses of the Universe is another gleefully putrid addition to the Dead Infection catalogue. It is muddy, buzzing, rumbling goregrind with a little groove and mostly sounds like a mix of Terrorizer played through an early-Carcass filter, as well as occasionally sounding like Autopsy and Repulsion birthed an ill-tempered child with a penchant for (literally) slinging mud at passersby. One of the most brutal slabs of vinyl to come out in quite some time. Also includes a MORTICIAN cover song (bloodcraving) which does not appear on the original cd pressing.

Album:TWILIGHT IN THE CRYSTAL CABINET
Label:Transubstans
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Feat members of MAKAJODAMA, MAGNOLIA and ANEKDOTEN. In a world where most things are overthought and music has become more and more technical, Transubstans Records is proud to present a truly spontaneous, organic record: MY BROTHER THE WINDs "Twilight in the Crystal Cabinet", a completely unrehearsed album recorded in 2 hours on a vintage Ampex 16 track 2" tape machine at Drop Out in Åmål, Sweden in May 2009, and mixed within 2 hours the very next day. The band consists of Nicklas Barker (ANEKDOTEN) on guitar, Mathias Danielson (MAKAJODAMA, and formely of GÖSTA BERLINGS SAGA) also on guitar, Ronny Eriksson (MAGNOLIA) on bass and Tomas Eriksson on drums: four relative strangers who with this record capture the achingly beautiful, melancholic music magic that ensues when talent and intuition meet and marry, and the inspired result casts its hypnotic, psychedelic spell on us all. "Twilight in the Crystal Cabinet" is comprised of six utterly improvised tracks, the spirit of which is honoured by its real-time, respectfully untampered mixing and resulting in the most honest, perceptive, sonically cinematic experience in recent decades. A bewitching culmination of pure, unedited creative energy - from the soul, through the fingers, directly to tape. It doesn't get any more real than this.

MAY THE CURSE BIND LP

Band:GHAST
Album:MAY THE CURSE BIND LP
Label:FLENSER
Format:VINYL DLP
Genre:Black Metal

Wales’ GHAST are among the heaviest of black-doom bands, and their debut CD, 2008’s “May The Curse Bind,” testifies to that. Now available on malevolent red vinyl, “May The Curse Bind” is available to be heard in its true analogue glory. As an added bonus this double 12-inch also features the tracks from GHAST’s sold-out 2007 split CD-R with the band Helvette. Limited edition of 500 copies.

GHAST was formed under the name “Souldust” in 2004. The intent from the beginning was to combine the heaviest Doom with the darkest Black Metal. After releasing three now sold-out cassette demos, the band changed their name to GHAST. GHAST recorded a split with Helvette that was released in 2007, and shortly after “May the Curse Bind” was recorded over the course of several days at Muscle Studios (Hateful Abandon, Salute). The result is an original vision of doom and black metal perfected, a masterpiece that separates GHAST from all other Black Metal bands, featuring strong musical and vocal performances matched with crushing production.

 

 

MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPE

Band:ASIDEFROMADAY
Album:MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPE
Label:DIVISION
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

The journey is dense, landscapes are varied but invariably grazed. There is one constant thing, the weather: dark, grey, threatening, always on the edge of spiting its downpour; the deluge is close, so close, too close… This new album must be walked, like to path of existence is walked, quickly or slowly, but always in a chaotic way. Hardly controlled hatred explosions, moments of perfect appeasement, the listener is trapped between hyper melodic tunes and savage parts full of aggression. Yes, modern hardcore has still something left to say…

"I think that this band got an enormous potential with a very good and very defined sound. The same struck me as with big bands such as Cult of Luna, Knut or Envy. Listen to this album. If you are a fan of this , I guarantee you that you will not be disappointed." The Executioner (Spain)

Album:ASCENSION
Label:DIVISION
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

The harmony is more than perfect, it’s cosmic. The depth of the first answers with so much grace to the atmospheric path of the second that you’re trapped, instantly, inexorably. From ultimate doom heaviness to pure progressive rock lightness, this album is not only a way for the bands to revisit their own influences (from EyeHateGod to Neurosis, from Celtic Frost to Godspeed you! Black Emperor, from Knut to SunnO))), from Earth to Pink Floyd) it is also the heartbreaking manifesto of two universes transcended by their own interweaving.

Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

Holy Cancer is the awaited follow-up to 2006’s The Mountain Daylight Time, which was unanimously considered as a brilliant breakthrough in heavy and atmospheric music. Mixing with no shame the heaviest sludgecore with smooth instru-metal parts reminding the best of the ‘post-rock/experimental’ scene, KEHLVIN’s Holy Cancer will crush you down like no other. Recorded by the band itself and mixing in three days by Godfather of Heaviness Julien Fehlmann (Dirge, Forceed, Hollow Corp, Unfold), this new record is wild, rough, heartbreaking and brainstorming, something like you’ve never heard, something with soul, something with guts. Yes, Holy Cancer is progressive hardcore at its best, with no compromise, far from the ‘post-hardcore’ cliché, it represent only honesty and terrible craving for the doom side of life.

Label:DIVISION
Format:CD
Genre:Grindcore

This is not a band, this is a war. This is not an album, this is a battlefield. This is not music, this is nuclear explosion. You’ve never heard something like this new album, it’s full of sick blastbeats and crazy mosh parts, it’s going faster and faster, it hurting you, it’s destroying your ears but still, you need it, you want it. There’s no escape, you are trapped somewhere dark and gloomy, there is this man who scream like if he is burning in hell, those guitars which sound like gun shots and this drummer who is perfectly insane. Lost Sphere Project is sheer brutality and mind dementia. Lost Sphere Project is definitely not human.

Label:DIVISION
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/POST ROCK

This album has changed everything.

Rich and heavy at a point that no one can even imagine, Unfold has reached the highest level of his art with this second full-length. Massive and pachydermic, this music does not forget to be melodic as well. It has been built to resist time, so that 8 years after its release, it is still fresh and young. The direct answer to the Swedish Cult of Luna, or the American Neurosis. The savage mix between Godflesh heaviness and Breach song writing. An eternal entity, a perfect record.

Colossal riffing. Raw emotion, but with a touch of evil. Charm and chaos. A crushing sonic realm with class. Vancouver is a heavy hypnotic hydra, a multi-dimensional behemoth.

 

 

BLACK LIGHTS & SILENT ROADS

Band:MY SILENT WAKE / THE DROWNING
Album:BLACK LIGHTS & SILENT ROADS
Label:Bombworks
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Doom duels doom on the new opus from My Silent Wake and The Drowning. My Silent Wake is already well established in the UK death / doom scene, having released 3 full length albums on Bombworks Records. The Drowning has also been a force in the UK scene, having released several albums of their own. Over the years, the 2 bands have shared the stage on many occasions and have forged a great friendship, so the idea of sharing an album together was a no brainer. The result is a feast of death / doom that is quite diverse and demonstrates the versatility, creativity, and musicianship of each band. Each band contributes several new original songs while paying homage to their relationship by each covering a song from the other. My Silent Wake begins with the first 4 songs, starting with a cover of Attrition's "I Am (Eternity)", including guest vocals from Attrition, a brand new original song, a brilliant acoustic cover of The Drowning's "Devoid of Light", and their longest and perhaps most diverse song to date, "Rebirth", clocking in at over 23 minutes. The Drowning then takes the stage with the crushing song "The Doomsday Feire", continues with 2 more brand new songs and then completes the album with an amazing heavy interpretation of My Silent Wake's "A Photograph", originally from the acoustic disc of "The Anatomy of Melancholy". Both bands deliver with memorable melodies, crushing riffs, and amazing sonic and dynamic contrasts to weave a musical tapestry that can both sooth the soul and crush you with its heaviness. The intricacies of the songs are expertly woven, making them enjoyable and accessible on a first listen while growing richer and rewarding the listener on continued listens, allowing the listener to truly experience the compositions. This is a required purchase for fans of My Dying Bride, Candlemass, Trouble, Iced Earth, Dead Can Dance, death and doom metal, and wellcrafted songs. Prepare to be immersed.

Album:WHISPERS OFTEN BLEAT
Label:I FOR AN I
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

SAVAOTH, originally formed by Saβaωθ in 2004, are an extremely promising four piece act based in Athens, Greece. Their music uniquely blends classical baroque era symphonic elements with cutting edge Scandinavian blackmetal and industrial aesthetics. “Whispers Often Bleat” is a hazardous experiment: a mixture of industrial distorted beats and noises with majestic orchestrations, always following the black metal traditions of bands like Dimmu Borgir, Emperor, Satyricon, Burzum, Darkthrone, Arcturus and Mayhem. The result is a brilliantly schizoid crossbreed!
