What Graceless Dawn

Band:WORM OUROBOROS
Album:What Graceless Dawn
Label:Profound Lore
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

With their third LP “What Graceless Dawn”, Oakland’s WORM OUROBOROS have brought into existence their deepest and most moving work yet. The follow-up to 2012’s “Come The Thaw” which was the band’s sophomore release, the trio of bassist/vocalist Lorraine Rath (ex-The Gault/Amber Asylum), guitarist/vocalist Jessica Way (Barren Harvest), and drummer Aesop Dekker (Vhol, ex-Agalloch/Ludicra) have taken the WORM OUROBOROS sound to a new level of sophistication through their amalgam of morose 4AD-esque doom, introspective death rock, dark ambient, and enchanting chamber goth. Through obsessive bass lines, ambient guitar movements, layers and overtones, the alluring vocal intertwining between Rath and Way, along with Dekker’s subtle yet procession-like percussion parts “What Graceless Dawn” is a sonic vision of tragedy and despair, one of the saddest, crippling, and gut-wrenching releases in the realm of heavy, dark, introspective music to bring the curtain down on the year. 

For fans of Agalloch, Pallbearer, Cocteau Twins, Yob, Amber Asylum, and the 4AD roster.

Band:CARDINAL WYRM
Album:Cast Away Souls
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Following their 2015 Svart Records release ‘Black Hole Gods’, California doom trio Cardinal Wyrm return with their new full-length release ‘Cast Away Souls’. With a sound described as “dense and riff-laden” by Terrorizer and “theatrical and grandiose” by Decibel, Cardinal Wyrm’s latest full length continues the band’s hypnotic wandering through the borderlands of reality and myth. Taking further leaps with the band’s style and songwriting, guitarist Nathan Verrill and vocalist / drummer Pranjal Tiwari are joined in this genre-bending release by new addition to the Cardinal Wyrm family, Leila Abdul-Rauf (Vastum, Hammers of Misfortune, ex-Amber Asylum). A gatefold and booklet of fantastical, full-color artwork by Kim Holm (Solstafir, Vreid) serves as the only map for listeners as they drift on a river of riffs towards the sonic islands of six epic, mesmeric tracks, on a journey through dimensions within and beyond.

Arctic Blues

Band:Eero Koivistoinen and Umo Jazz Orchestra
Album:Arctic Blues
Label:SVART
Format:2CD
Genre:JAZZ/JAZZ ROCK

The saxophonist and composer Eero Koivistoinen, who turned 70 this winter, is going through an exceptionally creative phase in his career. Koivistoinen celebrated his birthday together with the jazz orchestra UMO (Uuden Musiikin Orkesteri, New Music Orchestra), which he took part in founding in the mid‐seventies. Arctic Blues was recorded in Helsinki this winter and mixed and mastered in Power Sound Studio, Amsterdam. The album is a showcase of Koivistoinen's talents as composer, arranger, saxophonist as well as conductor, conducting one of the most remarkable European big bands of today. Arctic Blues is a behemoth of an album, spread over two CDs and three LPs, being the first Finnish jazz record of such magnitude. After founding UMO 40 years ago together with Esko Linnavalli and Heikki Sarmanto, Koivistoinen has often worked with the orchestra, and also acted as its director for a few years in the 1990s. Arctic Blues consists of mostly new material, recorded in the winter of 2016, but also features three tracks from a live session at UMO Concert House in 2005. The album has big band renditions of Koivistoinen's past work as well as material written for this record in mind. "In the 1970s, I studied composition and arranging at the Berklee College of Music, Boston, under the guidance of Herb Pomeroy. It waas an important phase in my musical development. UMO was my second musical college. The orchestra made it possible for me to become acquainted with the best works for big band, guided by the masters themselves. UMO had guest musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie, Thad Jones, Gil Evans, Joe Henderson", recalls Koivistoinen and adds, "Since we played a lot of these current numbers live with UMO at the shows this winter, the studio session was an easy and inspirational one." - 2CD SET.

LIVE IN BREMEN

Band:KOFI BAKER`S CREAM EXPERIENCE
Album:LIVE IN BREMEN
Label:SIREENA
Format:2CD
Genre:Rock

Phantastic live recordings by GINGER BAKER's son KOFI BAKER and his trio! CREAM was not only the first, but also THE mega-group of all times. Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker produced so much musical material in only two years, which would have taken other bands decades. Songs like “Sunshine of Your Love”, “White Room“, “Dance the Night Away“ and of course “I Feel Free" still are timeless classics, that are constantly rediscovered and reinterpreted by various artists. With his band Cream Experience, Ginger Baker’s son Kofi revives this genius blend of Blues, Hard- and Psychedelic-Rock and presents it together with Chris Shutters and Bob Willemstein in a raw, original and powerful way. Of course, the unique personal style of these great artists influences the recorded music and thus, a whole new experience is created also for veteran fans of Cream. This CD was recorded at a concert hosted by the legendary Meisenfrei Blues Club in Bremen and is part of a live-collection that is presented and continuously extended by Sireena Records.

 

 

FRONT POP

Band:FRENCH BOUTIK
Album:FRONT POP
Label:COPASE DISQUES
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:MOD / MOD REVIVAL

Highly anticipated debut album from Paris based French Boutik, is a revolutionary reference not only to the band's assertive "pop moderniste" style. But what is "pop moderniste" you'll ask?! Well as usual it is difficult to describe: As Shindig Magazine puts it: "They call it Pop Moderniste. I call it bloody marvelous." To put it straight I would descibe it as an unique combination of influences ranging from 60s standards like Dutronc and the Kinks, to early punk and powerpop from XTC and the Jam, but with all the French Boutik trademarks : Unusual but catchy melodies, sharp French and English lyrics, strong harmonies, chiming and slightly psychedelic guitar and assertive bass and drums, all underscored with smooth Wurlitzer and Hammond organ sounds courtesy of guest Popincourt.

Innocent Road

Band:Caleb Kauder and Reeb Willms
Album:Innocent Road
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Country

Caleb Klauder and Reeb Willms bring to you some of the finest, most pure and emotional country music that America has to offer today. On their new album, titled Innocent Road, Caleb and Reeb present six Caleb original songs and nestle them perfectly with a selection of gems that are often overlooked. Innocent Road is the third release by Caleb Klauder with his full Country band but this time he joins full force with Reeb Willms to follow up their sparse debut duo album Oh Do You Remember. Both musicians are equally at home singing lead or harmony and each offers an excellent compliment to the other. Its no surprise that these two sing so well together, they both approach music with a purity of emotion that is rare in today’s world. Few singers have the depth that these two bring to a song. This is a special duet that is subtle, powerful, and compelling. Their no bells and whistles approach while vocally focused, is grounded by Reeb’s rock-solid guitar playing and elevated by Caleb’s lyrical mandolin style. Innocent Road also features Russ Blake on pedal steel guitar and six string electric, Sam Weiss on fiddle, Jesse Emerson on upright bass, Ned Folkerth on drums, and a guest appearance from Jason Norris playing fiddle. Caleb and Reeb take the listener through a journey of early American country music, from the Carter Family to the Stanley Brothers and all the way to the present with Caleb’s own original songs. Their performance always includes a selection of mandolin and fiddle tunes from regional traditions across America.

 

 

SLOW

Band:OTTMAR LIEBERT
Album:SLOW
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:world/new age

"Sometime in 2015 I decided to record an album by myself, without the band, and knew that I wanted to create slow music. Love whispers and hate screams, and I decided to whisper very softly. I wanted to raise my guitar against the sound of billions of smartphones beeping with the latest news, mentions, likes, and comments, designed to keep us in a state of constant alarm. I made all of the music on this album with one guitar and one microphone. Working by myself in the studio felt like writing a very personal diary. I hope that some of you will switch your devices into airplane mode and let this music take you on a flight" – Ottmar Liebert

 

 

Holy Wow

Band:AMERICAN ENTHUSIASM
Album:Holy Wow
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Alt Rock

New 12” EP from Falmouth noisy lo-fi pop band, American Enthusiasm.

Formed earlier in 2016 (and initially intended as simply a recording project for singer / guitarist, Samuel Bedford), American Enthusiasm have developed very quickly. Having released their first self-titled cassette EP in September on Bristol's Breakfast Records, here's another 7 songs a matter of months later. On Holy Wow you can already hear the development the band has made. Recorded live at their practice space at Troubadour Studios in Falmouth, capturing that darker spirit of their live show. The new songs flit between noisy rock à la No Age and Japandroids and more melodic moments channeling Stephen Malkmus and Cate Le Bon, both working as the perfect backdrop to Bedford's distinctive baritone growl

 

 

EIGHT NIGHTS

Band:GRAND-POP
Album:EIGHT NIGHTS
Label:SPECIALIST SUBJECT
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Alt Rock

Debut LP from Bristol's Grand Pop. Perfect power pop from members / ex members of The Attika State, Caves & Personal Best.

Formed back in 2012 with members at a respective crossroads with current projects, Warren Mallia hadn't played guitar in 6 months, bassist Tom Hussey found himself in a new city with no musical outlet and despite being busy fronting Caves, Lou Hanman was itching play drums again. The result of this was Grand-Pop! Since 2012 a lot has changed, members no longer live in the same cities (drummer, Lou doesn't live in the same continent!). And despite a number of live shows supporting the likes of Iron Chic, PUP & Muncie Girls over the years, Grand-Pop have never been the most prolific band. Eight Nights is the perfect document of 'what was' and 'what could be' for three friends making music together.

Sticking to a to the point, power pop formula (think Weezer, Superchunk & The Promise Ring), this record rages by in a truly gratifying, sing along fashion. With shows planned for early 2017 who knows what could be in the future for Grand-Pop. If it's another eight great pop songs in the next four years then maybe that's good enough!

 

 

Blowing Chunks

Band:PIZZATRAMP
Album:Blowing Chunks
Label:TNS RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Reggae

With a high energy action packed live show Pizzatramp have been exciting punk rock audiences all over the UK. This is fast as fuck, riff fuelled thrash punk, delivered with a swagger. It doesn't piss about. 'Blowing Chunks' is their best recorded material to date, building on the success of their previous EPs and adding even bigger riffs and even more energy. Basically they are your new favourite band and they will be coming to a town or city near you very soon to drink all your booze.

This is what Pizzatramp had to say about the album: "Our new album is out on November the 11th, and has been long awaited and anticipated following the excuciating period of time since the last one, about 6 months. Featuring absolutely no progression whatsoever, the new album is once again full of short rants about the world around us, cunningly disguised as songs about drugs and pizza. Everyone should buy this album, because 1. It is wicked. 2. It is cheap. 3. It has a good cover. 4. We are better than every other punk band in the world, except Wonk Unit, Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man and Grand Collapse."

ARRM

Album:ARRM
Label:instant classic
Format:CD
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

November will see the release of a new Instant Classic album - the full length debut from ARRM, a group created by musicians known from post-black metal band Thaw. Their self-titled record consists of five instrumental tracks recorded mostly live and reminiscent of early Barn Owl and „Hex” era Earth. ARRM came to life in 2010 as a solo project of guitarist Artur Rumiński (Thaw, Furia). „First it was only me but as time went by I decided to expand ARRM, first by adding bass player Rafał Miciński. Then Maciej Śmigrodzki (Thaw) came to replace him and we even managed to play some concerts supporting Nadja and Mamiffer”, recalls Rumiński. „A couple of our tracks got released as part of cassette split with Stara Rzeka and Innercity Trio but at the end of 2012 ARRM went on a hiatus so that we could concentrate on other projects. It lasted until March 2016 and brought some personal changes – we welcomed back Rafał Miciński, Maciej Śmigrodzki switched to keyboards and drummer Michał Leks joined the band”. „ARRM” was recorded in Maq Records Studio under the supervision of Haldor Grunberg (Thaw). „We managed to record the whole album live during one weekend”, says Rumiński. „Before entering the studio we only had two demo versions of 'Pinewood' and 'Grave' but those were scrapped in favor of the newer ones. If I were to find a common ground for those five tracks I would point to an obvious lack of haste that allowed us to concentrate on specific sounds”, he adds. To support the release ARRM will play shows with Rafał Iwański (Innercity Ensemble, Alameda 5) and Tides From Nebula. The band will also play with Jozef van Wissem in Warsaw on October 20th.

After playing shows with Sludge and Post-Metal heavyweights like Downfall Of Gaia or Buried At Sea, Abest will release their new 12“ EP LAST in May 2016. LAST is mastered by Brad Boatright (Old Man Gloom, Nails, Oathreaker) and contains four songs that are a lot more uncompromising than the bands past material. LAST sums up the past two years of Abest, their intense live performances and shows a style of Post-Metal, that will leave you breathless and satisfied at once. For Fans of Cult Of Luna and Primitive Man. vinyl lp.

Genre:Black Metal

Founded by Benjamin Linz and Sebastian Fischbeck in Winter 2015, Berlin based Post Black Metal Band ÅND will release its debut album in late 2016.

BAD BLOOD - CD

Band:CLOWNS
Album:BAD BLOOD - CD
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

In 2015 Clowns have unsolicitedly carved their name into the walls of the Australian punk rock hall of fame. The success of their most recent full length Bad Blood has seen them smash sold out shows and festivals nation wide, appear at the 2015 SxSW festival, become the first ever Australian act to (dis)grace the prestigious Riot Fest line up in Chicago and achieve high rotation on national radio stations and bedroom record players alike.

Combining a vicious base layer of punishing punk rock combined with influences that range from 77’ punk, to underground Australian rock, as well as thrash, doom, noise and powerpop all loaded with chaos, energy and fun. Clowns really know no boundaries in regards to leaving punters stoked that they left their couches and came out to see them at a show. With two full length LP’s under their belt including 2013’s “I’m Not Right” which ranked in at number 5 of national radio's "Short Fast Loud' top 40 releases of 2013, as well as the already highly acclaimed follow up LP "Bad Blood" released in early 2015, Clowns are heavily equipped with the right credentials to back up their impressive live show. Both of these records are out on highly esteemed Australian label “Poison City Records”, which the band have a strong and proud working relationship with, as well as having North American distribution through “No Idea Records” in USA. With over 300 shows since the bands inception, shedding the lifeblood of Melbourne hardcore punk across South-East Asia, China, New Zealand, Australia and just recently USA; not to mention appearances at SXSW in Texas, MIDI Festival in China and many wild Australian East Coast shows, it’s safe to say that Clowns have a strong thirst for being on the road.

MOSHBURGER

Band:Insanity Alert
Album:MOSHBURGER
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:CD
Genre:Thrash/Crossover Metal

The alpine 4-piece mows everything down: Crossover-Thrash like the good old days, with a big evil grin from ear to ear and a skate, party drenched humour (“Life’s Too Short For Longboards!”, “Disco Demolition”). The singer may remind me of Mike Muir from Suicidal Tendencies sometimes, yet Insanity Alert sounds way more metallic and are definitely faster! Brutal riffing, gang-shouts, effective moshparts, everything presented in a tight old-school sound which barely keeps me from opening a beer. D.R.I., Municipal Waste, early Suicidal Tendencies, S.O.D., early Anthrax, Nuclear Assault ,Dr. Living Dead! – that’s where Insanity Alert gets the toxicated inspiration. Thrash Harder! It’s all about having a good time and a massive moshpit: Metal Punk at its best, that’s what these dudes from Innsbruck celebrate - and everyone wants to join the festivities. The band is on the road a lot, and is a force to be reckoned with, so do yourself a favour and go check them out, you're gonna regret it: Shred Power to the Max!! Insanity Alert's upcoming longplayer “Moshburger” was recorded and mixed by Andy Classen (ex-Holy Moses) at Stage One Studios and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust).

DEAD SUN RISING

Band:SPACE CHASER
Album:DEAD SUN RISING
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN
Format:CD
Genre:Thrash/Crossover Metal

From the first tone and the feel of the cover you quickly realize, that the guys are little more in for the „dark“ stuff. Still, the have their hymns and sing alongs, but the complete album is mor „adult“ - thats what you called it, i guess. They got rid a little bit of the comic-esce / funlike vibe they had on „Watch The Skies“ and added some skilled & complex guitarworks – its more aggressive and better than the old stuff.

The singing from Siggi varies between the mighty Dickinson and a young version of Kiske – but more aggressive than both – this is no bullshit thrashmetal – fast, aggressive, complex and in your face! The sound is crispy and sharp like a knife. Think of of lightfooted Slayer, Overkill, early Deathrow, Holy Moses, 80s Metallica or, of couse Anthrax.

This is a damn good psych-trip – take Butthole Surfers, Pissed jeans and NEU! meets Sweden! The volvo under the saabs!

Depraved / A very long week

Band:CHARLENE BERETAH
Album:Depraved / A very long week
Label:DIVISION
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Black Metal

The band’s first ep is offering two epic tracks, and let us tell you that they are sludgy & morbid as fuck. The songs, running for more than 10 minutes each, represent the two sides of the same evil coin and are the foolish testimony of CHARLENE BERETAH malevolent fire power. Mixing with no shame the heaviest doom with crust acceleration and a hint of old-school black metal, the band’s music is perfectly suitable for invoking the Great Goat, opening the gates of hell or just enter in a mind communion with nothingness. Pure violence, no compromise.

Glory Of The Supervenient

Band:Glory Of The Supervenient
Album:Glory Of The Supervenient
Label:OVERDUB
Format:CD
Genre:Prog Rock

Glory Of The Supervenient comes from a creative urgency. In his essence wants to be free art, that means untied from forces that wishes to mold it in a certain direction rather than another. The music that flows from that is a journey through uncharted sound landscapes. Overflying harsh, tensive images, sometimes landing on quieter clearings, dreamlike. Rhythm, repetition and cyclicality are fundamental traits of the trip, always serving thematic continuity and inside formal organization. Electronic and virtual instruments are the needed content that produces the variety of sound of the entire album, allowing to define the features of a work placed in contemporary world and man but with a look further, using the words of great philosopher Emanuele Severino, toward the Joy of the Whole, in the Glory Of The Supervenient.

Having forged a longtime relationship with DOOMENTIA that has already resulted in over a dozen lavish vinyl reissues, it felt logical to choose that very same label to, at long, last re-release the last two missing parts of that puzzle: namely, the two ABOMINATION full-lengths originally released in 1990 and 1991, respectively.

Skullbearer / In Nighted Waters

Band:GRAVEHILL / MORDBRAND
Album:Skullbearer / In Nighted Waters
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Death Metal

You really thought that, after three splits and as many singles and albums (plus a compilation of all those random tracks) in ten years, MORDBRAND would start to slow things down, didn’t you? You fool! They’re about to once again renew their collaboration with DOOMENTIA, which got kickstarted with the Unmake EP in April 2013, with another slab of their very own crusty-yet-twisted brand of Swedish death metal, but this time sharing the wax with the GRAVEHILL boys from Los Angeles, California.

Business as usual, then? Nah, no quite. Conceived as stand-alone EPs, each with their own cover artwork and title, each side marks a new step in both bands' (d)evolution. While still raging, MORDBRAND’s half – dubbed In Nighted Waters, on side B, and featuring spooky T. Ketola artwork – has a newly acquired creepy/subdued vibe, as suggested by the atmospheric layers of keyboards that engulf opener "Decimation Reigns." As a special treat to both longtime obscure DM fans and those who acquire this split, they’ve also recorded their own, rearranged version of Bluuurgh's "Compost Christ" (from their 1990 Suffer Within EP) with former GRAVEHILL frontman Mike Abominator on backing vocals.

As for GRAVEHILL, who begin the record on side A, Skullbearer is kinda a new start for them. Fear not, though: their OTT blackthrash is as relentless as ever, but since their great Death Curse album in 2014, there’s been a few changes in their camp, with a new lead guitarist in tow and the aforementioned Mike Abominator having handed the microphone to their bass-player Corpse, who, in turn, got replaced on the four strings by their former guitarist Bodybag Bob (are you still with us?!). But since their founding member Thorgrimm is still cracking the whip, you can be sure they’ve lost none of their intensity. And those four new tracks (plus a faithful-yet-vicious cover of Bathory's "Sacrifice") will remind everybody they’re still the most METAL band on the whole West Coast. Hail and kill!

 

 

EVIL MADNESS / INFANT DEATH

Band:EVIL MADNESS / INFANT DEATH
Album:EVIL MADNESS / INFANT DEATH
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Death Metal

INFANT DEATH and EVIL MADNESS may come from two very different countries - or even continents, for that matter - and each have a slightly unique DNA, but they’re both old school to the fucking bone, and that’s why they’ve decided to gather forces to show the rest of the world how it’s done.

Originally released on tape through Ancestral Terror Productions from Chile - home turf of EVIL MADNESS, whereas INFANT DEATH are from Norway - this LP contains 31 minutes of vicious blackthrash meets old-school classic thrash, each band offering four and five tracks, respectively, of ripping torment, including a storming rendition of Onslaught's very own "Thermonuclear Devastation," courtesy of INFANT DEATH: a fitting description of their approach, actually. EVIL MADNESS may have a less blackish and more traditional way of decapitating their listeners’ heads - think more early Kreator or Possessed than, say, Aura Noir in that case - but both acts have the same uncompromising and "fuck all trends" attitude. As implied by this split, pressed on 45 RPM vinyl to insure maximum audio fidelity, they’re not here to take any prisoners!

 

 

Satanic Corpse

Band:BRUTALLY DECEASED
Album:Satanic Corpse
Label:DOOMENTIA
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

HM-2 pedal in full splendor? Check. Relentless downtuned riffage? Check. Paolo Girardi's grotesque-yet-magnificent artwork? Check. Death fucking metal the Swedish way from the Czech Republic? Check indeed! BRUTALLY DECEASED are back with Satanic Corpse, their third release under the DOOMENTIA RECORDS banner. Formed in 2007, the group was devoid of compromise ever since, and two years after Black Infernal Vortex, they have lost none of their crushing power.

As soon as the chainsaw guitars of the opening salvo "The Art of Dying" kick in, these dudes once again show that there is far more than meets the eye and that BRUTALLY DECEASED are not just another retro band playing it as if the world had stopped turning since the release of Left Hand Path. Utilizing filthy-yet-articulate distortion, furious blastbeats, and solid songwriting, these guys are able to do the job on their own.

Anyway, worshipers of the classic acts of the genre should be on their guard, too. Not only those twin-guitar harmonies in "At One with the Dead" will make all the Dismember (and Iron Maiden) fans beg for more. If you are into honest and unforgiving death metal, 30 minutes of Satanic Corpse is one hell of a ride!

 

 

VENERATION OF ARMAGEDDON

Band:GOATBLOOD
Album:VENERATION OF ARMAGEDDON
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

Set to be released blasphemously on Christmas Eve 2016, DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of Germany's GOATBLOOD, Veneration of Armageddon. For the past five years, this chains- and bullet-bedecked power-trio have been polluting the metal underground with their belligerent brand of bestial black/death. A handful of demos as well as a split were vomited forth before GOATBLOOD's momentous debut album, Adoration of War and Blasphemy, in 2015. Ever aptly titled, Adoration of War and Blasphemy soundly put the band on the international map, and proved that new, gnarly twists can be made to the rigorous bestial metal template. Alas, with a few more ensuing splits, time has come for the second GOATBLOOD album, equally aptly titled Veneration of Armageddon. If Adoration of War and Blasphemy pushed the envelope and punished the (un)willing listener, then Veneration of Armageddon gleefully takes that garish assault one step further. Across 18 tracks in a swift 'n' salacious 37 minutes, GOATBLOOD explode forth with a pulsing, pestilent savagery from which there is no reprieve. It's dank and disgusting, dungeon-toned and treacherous, whipping the listener into a hellish, hallucinogenic trance. And yet, for however unrelenting all these songs are, Veneration of Armageddon retains a rare, everelusive catchiness, GOATBLOOD here nodding as much to nascent grindcore like early Blood, Extreme Noise Terror, and Doom as they do Blasphemy, Beherit, and Archgoat. In other words, it's simply everything that ingratiated Adoration of War and Blasphemy to the dieharder faithful, but taken to more extremes - and extremely memorable, in the process. Desecrate the birth of a bastard hobo with Veneration of Armageddon! (Text by Nathan Birk)

DUNKELHEIT PRODUKTIONEN is proud to present LASTER's highly anticipated second album, Ons vrije fatum. In 2014, DUNKELHEIT released LASTER's debut album, De verste verte is hier, and it went on to be hailed as a visionary work of modern black metal, blending grimness and gorgeousness in equal measure. Here on Ons vrije fatum, the Dutch trio strive for an even bolder vision, maximizing the emotional pull of its epic predecessor by reigning in song lengths to more digestable trajectories whilst exploring an even wider expanse of sonic/atmospheric possibility. It's a record that explodes with a harrowing harshness, particularly in the vocal department, but which peels back its layers as the album progresses - and yet adds more, mysterious layers during its duration. Its violence, its ceaseless sturm und drang, is firmly rooted within black metal, but LASTER's increasingly ambitious approach strives for hinterlands of the soul & spirit not conventionally nor conveniently labelled "black metal."

HELLRIDER

Band:METAL LAW
Album:HELLRIDER
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Do you like bands which try to reinvent the wheel? If so, you can quit reading now. METAL LAW don't reinvent the wheel, they're just satisfied to run you over with the wheel that's already there. If you want something unique or innovative, you've come to the wrong place. It is not, but who ever said that music needs to be original to sound good and be downright enjoyable? It took 8 long years for the German defenders of steel to come back with a new full-length, the 3rd one in their discography. But good things come to those who wait, and the 10 new songs (plus a re-recording of a tune from their previous album) are traditional heavy metal anthems with solid riffs, sing-along choruses and somewhat gruff vocals reminiscent of Eric Adams, rounded up by production which is a vast improvement over their last effort. Warning: if true metal runs through your veins and you can never get enough of IRON MAIDEN, MANOWAR, JUDAS PRIEST, ACCEPT or old RUNNING WILD, listening to this album is guaranteed to make your head bang, your fists raise up high in the air and is likely to make you wanna party and scream "METALLL!" on the streets in the middle of the night!

After 8 years METAL LAW serve up their 3rd album. The German defenders of steel don't reinvent the wheel, they're just satisfied to run you over with the wheel that's already there. But who said that music needs to be original to be enjoyable? If true heavy metal runs through your veins, listening to these anthems will make your head bang and your fist raise up high in the air!

 

 

Countdown to Armageddon

Band:SACRED GATE
Album:Countdown to Armageddon
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

If Armageddon is anything like the new SACRED GATE album, it would be something to count down the days to with excitement! The already solid songwriting known from this German traditional heavy metal band's two previous albums has developed even more as they have further consolidated their own style, which often brings to mind '80s US power metal, gives a few nods to NWOBHM, but also verges on thrash in some chunky riffs. The addition of a new singer with dynamic, melodic and full of passion vocals has facilitated it and helped the band reach their artistic maturity. It's hard not to appreciate the intricate arrangements, catchy choruses, flowing leads with beautiful, epic melodies and the robust rhythm section, especially when the powerful production helps them shine. A well thought out and musically intoxicating album, which should find its place in the collections of all metalheads who love bands such as SAXON, ICED EARTH, IRON MAIDEN, ASKA, BLAZE, DESTILLERY, THUNDERBOLT, METAL LAW, METAL INQUISITOR, early ARTCH or BLITZKRIEG!

The Germans from SACRED GATE recruited a very talented Dutch singer and recorded their 3rd album. It's still traditional heavy metal with '80s US power metal infusions, but they further consolidated their own style, reaching artistic maturity with intricate arrangements, dynamic and melodic vocals, catchy choruses, flowing leads, epic melodies and robust rhythm section

This band can be best compared to wine - they're only getting better with age. The sound that once brought ATTACKER to the forefront of the underground scene has matured and yet remained faithful to the classic sound that has made them great in the first place.

The Loom of Time is a novel blend of black metal, death metal and doom - music that constantly forges forward, but keeps its roots in the unassailable heritage of rock and heavy metal. In a world of passionless, formulaic music, Loom gives us a glimpse of what metal might have been had the genre progressed without leaving behind the grit, fire, depth and creativity that today's trend-chasers never seemed to grasp. The influence of Marduk, Immortal, Emperor and more in general of Scandinavian black/death metal, tempered with Candlemass, Thyrfing, Sahg and Angel Witch, creates a sound that keeps the soul of heavy metal intact, whilst stepping forward musically and lyrically - facing the questions that confront mankind, that may never truly be answered. Australia is becoming any day the new frontier of extreme metal, forging projects that are part of a strong creative assembly.

Band:SONDAG
Album:Bright Things
Label:OVERDUB
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

“Bright Things” has come into the world after a year of sound experiments, always looking for a compact and distinctive sound.

Murmure

Band:TRE CHIODI
Album:Murmure
Label:OVERDUB
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

The body creaks, whispers, blows and cracks. We don't pay attention, but it talks to us, and if we listen to it we can learn new things. Our album is named after the sound of the air cells which open to take air. It's a sound we never hear,except when we decide to do it paying attention. It's the faint sound of the interaction between our body and the world which sticks inside us, inside our lungs, close to the heart. Murmure gathers the voices of nine parts of the body which have inspired nine stories. Joining them, if you listen to them carefully, there is a relationship between two people; two steps of a relationship which starts with a taking of will from one of the two, asserts himself, enraptures the other's attention, causes a crash and ends on his own, listening to the suond of his hair's growth.
