SECRET AMBROSIAN FIRE (LIMITED)

Band:MOSAIC
Album:SECRET AMBROSIAN FIRE (LIMITED)
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CDD
Genre:DARK METAL/AVANTGARDE/FOLK

SECRET AMBROSIAN FIRE the invocation of a new, old world. With their debut full-length album, MOSAIC explore the sacred traditions of their Thuringian homelands, reinvigorating myths and legends which are as ancient as the mountains they stem from. SECRET AMBROSIAN FIRE draws heavily on the traditional lore of the Hörselberge, a mountain chain situated in the most mystical of all German regions. Legend has it that this is the place where purgatory is located and where Mother Hulda leads the wild hunt through stormy winter nights. To the initiated, the weeds and flowers growing in these mountains can even be the key to the otherworld. MOSAIC use this fiery, flowery lore to forge an aural bond between this world and the world of our forebears, while at the same time transitioning into a wholly new phase of their creative endeavours. MOSAIC feed the SECRET AMBROSIAN FIRE with their love of poetry, weaving their own interpretations of works by poets such as Georg Trakl, Else Lasker-Schüler and Paul Celan, as well as more regionally known artists like Hanns Cibulka, into their songs. Widely known for their daring, shapeshifting approach to creating music, MOSAIC now go a step further to create an album that is ultimately uncompromising. Reduced song structures leave space for the atmosphere to unfold, and every single song is allowed to bloom in its unique manner. MOSAIC invited several highly distinguished guest artists to contribute to and make their own mark on this inimitable record. SECRET AMBROSIAN FIRE is an offering of experimental ambient soundscapes, traditional motifs and bewitching incantations, shaken by eruptions of masterfullly crafted black metal. To put it into one word: SECRET AMBROSIAN FIRE is SUPREME THURINGIAN FOLKLORE. All music was mixed and mastered at Klangschmiede Studio E by Markus Stock (Empyrium, Sun of the Sleepless). TRACKLIST 1. Am Teufelsacker (5:55) 2. Brimstone Blossoms (3:43) 3. Cloven Fires (3:28) 4. She-Water (5:11) 5. Ambrosia XIX (5:34) 6. Wetterdistel (4:44) 7. Coal Black Salt (4:15) 8.

FENSTERVERSE UND NACHTGESPINSTE

Band:MOSAIC
Album:FENSTERVERSE UND NACHTGESPINSTE
Label:Eisenwald
Format:MCD
Genre:AVANTGARDE/FOLK/SONGWRITER

“Fensterverse und Nachtgespinste” is an experimental release by MOSAIC which mirrors Valkenstijn's wide-ranging taste in music. He cites EA80, Rome and Tenhi as his most important influences, who on this record are cited and re-imagined in a most unique way. Breathing an air of urbanity and contemporariness, all songs included on this record are musical interpretations of poems by Cologne-based writer Ulrike Serowy. Serowy's poetry is infused with a rough romanticism which can only sprout on the threshold between reality and imagination, between this world and the world behind the veil. Her language, both dreamy and compelling, invokes images of urban and non-urban landscapes which have found their aural inkarnations in Valkenstijn's simple and haunting compostions.

UMBRA

Band:UMBRA
Album:UMBRA
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:ACID ROCK/70S

What was available to unknown hard rocking dreamers like Umbra in Denver in 1971-72? Weekend gigs. Nothing but weekend gigs. But there was an upside to that: bands like Umbra could mix original material in with covers, and make enough money to survive. Or in the case of Umbra, to make enough money to build a home studio, where they recorded ads to promote their upcoming shows-and eventually, laid down the eight tracks on this disc. Everything was recorded by bouncing tracks back and forth between two-track and four-track reel-to-reel tape recorders. Spacey intros and weird effects were created by recording guitar licks, then re-recording them played backwards at double speed. What sounds like a flute was the result of blowing over the top of a 14" goose neck (believe it or not). The resulting tracks are hard edged and heavy, verging on acid rock at times. Makes sense, as Umbra was a power trio most of their too-brief existence. Yet the songs (heavy though they are) have a deft touch. There are weird effects, space rock elements, plenty of melody, and a refreshing category-free approach to writing songs that makes Umbra's music exciting to hear.

Our Lion LP edition comes with an 8-page LP-sized color booklet, with lyrics, photos, plus interesting and funny things that can only happen to musicians, and did to Umbra. The CD edition comes with a sixteen-page color booklet containing the same material. We know that band bios can be sterile and boring or can move to the opposite spectrum, rife with grandiose embellishment. Umbra's story is neither. Instead, it is the story is the story of a band from the early 1970's who recorded what they wanted to record: heavy, heavy music from the start of the "American Comedown Era" (as we've seen it described by friends for their Brown Acid series of compilations). Umbra's story is also that of a band whose music, terrific though it is, has never to this point been released out into the wide world. Prepare yourselves to be surprised-and we hope as impressed as we are-by what Umbra had to offer.

 

 

KOZMIK KOON

Band:ZONE SIX
Album:KOZMIK KOON
Label:SULATRON RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:ACIDROCK/PSYCHEDELIC/RITUAL MUSIC/SPACEROCK

Zone Six got founded in August 1997 by Dave Schmidt (aka Sula Bassana). Now you get a new studio-album by these legendary impro-spacerockers! The wild mixture of psychedelic rock, electronica and trippy soundscapes is still the leading direction for the band. But these tracks rock a lot. The title Kozmik Koon was inspired by our friend Kozmik Ken from England, who is the father of the lovely Kozfest and a bear like person. We live in a area full of racoons, so we instantly found the name Kozmik Koon. :) This album is also dedicated to our friend Richard van Ess, called Richie, who sadly passed away much too early! We love you forever! The great coverpainting was done by Ulla Papel, who also did the paintings for The Doomsday Machine and Innside Outside by Electric Moon. It's Lulu's dad by the way. Recorded 2016-2018 by Sula at Amöbenklangraum Schlierbach. Mixed and produced by Sula, mastered by Eroc (www.eroc.de). Cover painting by Ulla Papel, layout by Lulu Artwork!. This album is dedicated to Kozmik Ken and Richard van Ess. Rainer Neeff: Guitar, fx (The Pancakes, ex Embryo) Komet Lulu: Bass, fx, voice (Electric Moon, Krautzone) Sula Bassana: Drums, Synths, Organ, Mellotron, E-Piano and A-Guitar (Electric Moon, Interkosmos, Krautzone, ex Liquid Visions etc.) Tracks: Maschinenseele (12:53) Kozmik Koon (10:58) Raum (03:28) Still (03:37) Song for Richie (13:52)

 

 

SETTING FORTH

Band:ODYSSEY
Album:SETTING FORTH
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:LP
Genre:PSYCH

Once upon a time, when the music business was more music than business (but only just), there was a band that created a quintessential dose of New York sixties psychedelia: one perfect album, loaded with fuzz guitar riffs of the greatest ferocity, heavy swirling organ, pulsating drums, and intense vocals. That band was Odyssey. It is true that their album, "Setting Forth," did not take them from support slots in their native Long Island to the major label heights of other local bands like Vanilla Fudge. That could be because there were only a few copies made, and they came in a plain white jacket. Yet it is that same Odyssey "Setting Forth" album that is one of the greatest guitar-heavy psychedelic records in the world, and as a result is one of the most sought after and rare (expensive) LPs of the era. The last original vinyl copy to hit the open market was back in 2005, it s that rare. Now Setting Forth is available on vinyl again for the for the first time in a decade, ready for true psych fans to devour. This is truly one of the cornerstones of underground psychedelic music, recorded in 1969 and released as we have said in a minuscule private edition. It is an album that jumps right out of the speakers at you, from it s opening blasts of 'In-a-gadda-da-vida fuzz guitar riffs, right to the very end. Color insert has a suitably kaleidoscopic band history by Odyssey leader Vinny Kusy, as well as rare photos from his own archive. One of the most important psychedelic rarities ever pressed on wax back on wax. One of the absolute best American psychedelic LPs of the 1960 s, and one of the rarest! Includes a color insert with rare photos, and kaleidoscopic band history by Odyssey leader Vinny Kusy.

Side B will sport a laser etching of the band logo. This time Bernocchi is guesting two female vocalists, Minipony’s Emilia Moncayo, whom voice is constantly balancing among growling and rhythmic wording, sometime bordering hip pop/dub territories, and Stefania Alos Pedretti from OVO. her vocal excursions are simply crawling under your skin. The thirds track is a Blackwood fingerprint classic where treated religious samples are transforming ceremonies in something darker. The place where dreams are devoured is more alive than ever

HOLLYWOOD ROXX 1976-80:STUDIO SESSIONS

Band:LUST
Album:HOLLYWOOD ROXX 1976-80:STUDIO SESSIONS
Label:PROGAOR
Format:CD
Genre:HARD ROCK/HEAVY METAL

LUST were the best kept secret from the prolific California Heavy Rock scene of the 70's, that spawned bands like Van Halen, Quiet Riot, Y&T, Legs Diamond, Motley Crue, Dokken, Snow and many others. The band was formed by Austin M. Carrino (guitar) and vocalist Keith Deen (R.I.P.) who later found major recognition in the Thrash Metal band Holy Terror. The band also had in their ranks drummer Liam Jason (Warrior, Rhinobucket). The LUST sound is the kind of melodic Heavy Metal that you could expect made in the late 70s: Think 70's Riot, early Dokken (Back on the Streets era) and 70's Quiet Riot to have an idea where they stand with their songs. Keith was an amazing singer and Austin's guitar work was good enough to stand strong on stage when they were performing live with some of the local classic names. Had the band found a good manager and a decent record deal and probably today we would have another legendary melodic Metal album in the Hard Rock hall of fame. DYAMOND ROXX/PROGAOR has been for a year with this project on hold for a number of reasons but finally…it is finished! This release is above all, another attempt at bringing some justice to Rock'n'Roll. Remastered by Swedish guitarist Janne Stark (Overdrive, Constancia, Grand Design, Merryweather Stark, etc.) the CD contains 7 tracks recorded between 1976 and 1980 plus one solo project song recorded in 1982. Presented in a 12-page booklet including the lyrics, archive photos and song-by-song comments by Austin himself, this is a release not to miss! TRACK LISTING 1 Lady Fine (1980) 2 Roll Away (80) 3 First Time (80) 4 Queen Of Diamonds (80) 5 Grains Of Sand (77) 6 Faith (77) 7 Dog Food (76) 8 I Need Your Love (82 - Bonus Track)

 

 

THE BLACK POINT

Band:SUBDUXTION
Album:THE BLACK POINT
Label:AAGOO RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:POST-INDUSTRIAL/DRONE/EXPERIMENTAL/DOOM

The dense sonic fabric of The Black Point is one awash in a massive wall of unrelenting sound and intense blackenedatmosphere. Combining a dark electronic futurism, sheets of noise and the more tar-thickened elements of doom, it makes for a bleaker musical chapter for subduxtion. At times tranquil and oppressive, The Black Point is a hazy recasting of differing styles. The album will be released on December 6 2019 via New Jersey label Aagoo Records in CD and Digital formats. Christopher Gilmore is an American composer and producer. He is based in Kansas City, Missouri. Christopher’s music shows the relationship between post-industrial, ambient, drone/doom metal, noise, psychedelics and electronics. He composes instrumental and experimental music that is murky, dark and heavy.

CALL FOR JUSTICE

Band:COLDSIDE
Album:CALL FOR JUSTICE
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:7
Genre:HARDCORE

True hardcore music is unstoppable. Coldside has destroyed the barriers of the Florida hardcore music scene and embedded themselves into it’s gritty core. Heavily influenced by the NYHC culture, Coldside will take you back to the days of circle pits, parking lot brawls, and bloodstained boots. When the message meant something and hardcore was a lifestyle. Ex-members of Wardogs, Vietnom, and C.B.S/Lita Gray, Coldside is constantly evolving into one of the hardest bands on the East Coast. Still staying true to the times when hardcore was more then music, when it was a movement. Coldside brings back the tradition, the aggression, and unity that hardcore music has always been about. Heavy riffs, sing-alongs, and lyrics written from years of growing up in the underground music scene pour out in every song. Like going to a show with 10 kids or 500 who may not know each other, but knowing that everyone at the show with a heart is compelled with the same intensity, to never let anyone even think they can stop them. True hardcore at its root’s…COLDSIDE.

Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:DEATH/DOOM METAL

The Drowning from UK pay tribute to the death/doom pioneers of the style but they add their own dynamics to the affair, balancing poignancy with pummelling aggression. Rarely has this been pulled off without disrupting the mood but The Drowning are surprisingly adept at it. It's as if the pent up emotions are being channelled after an eloquent, meaningful expression. This keeps happening during the course of the wonderfully varied and interesting album, that adds a dimension to the standard UK death/doom that we're well-acquainted with. The organic and sonorous production works with both aspects of their sound and only makes the emotions that much more palpable. Structurally rich, this album grows on you with each listen, and the outstanding performance by the vocalist in expressing grief and rage elevates it above other albums of this ilk.

NOCTURNE

Band:BLOSSE
Album:NOCTURNE
Label:DE TENEBRARUM RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METAL

Blosse, hailing from Quebec, began in early 2018 with the release of “Le Dernier Crépuscule”, moving from a primitive form of Lo-Fi Black Metal & involving some Dark Ambient elements too. As times passed by the hypnotic, visionary and transcendental substance grown as a key part in the band creative process. Time is suddenly distorted and your body feels heavy. References may be found on projects like Lunar Aurora, Paysage d’Hiver, Trist and The Ruins of Beverast. As the artist mentions : "The term “Lovecraftian” being used to describe any kind of metal that’s a little bit cosmic sounding and weird is insanely overused, and often I don’t think it’s accurate. Not all cosmic horror has to come from something 7000 feet tall and so great we cannot comprehend it. In this sense, this is why Blosse’s music sounds more earthly. I didn't want to fall into the stereotypes." The cd edition of "Nocturne" includes "Era Noire" EP as bonus. The EP shows the more meditative and synth inspired side of Blosse, While into "Nocturne" the space synths/choirs are still there, the abrasive guitars are way more center stage contributing to the Blosse's comprehensive manifestation. "Era Noire" is definitely to be considered a more experimental side of the project: a guitar wall of sound and loop, then adding the synths and merge them with distortion to create a deranged sound.

 

 

O SANGUE DA NOITE (LIMITED)

Band:SARTEGOS
Album:O SANGUE DA NOITE (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:BLACK METAL/BLACK DEATH

Lead by Rou Morgade (guitar, bass, keyboards, vocals), SARTEGOS may have been a silent presence in today's underground metal, but their shadow inexorably lengthened on the scene throughout the decade. After a couple of demos released in 2010 and 2011, the Galician band proved its worth thanks to two important recordings: the revelatory “As Fontes Do Negrume” EP (2013), and the formidable “Resvrrezionespiritval” split with YSENGRIN (2016), both released on vinyl format through I, Voidhanger Records. Filed a with fellow, for SARTEGOS it's now time to conquer the world with their debut full-length album, “O Sangue da Noite” (The Blood of the Night), which combines the primitive and abrasive sounds of 90s metal with a tense and sharp songwriting devoted to obscure and morbid atmospheres.

 

 

TELLURIAN INSURGENCY (LIMITED)

Band:PLOUGHSHARE
Album:TELLURIAN INSURGENCY (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:BLACK DEATH DOOM

With their 2018 debut full-length “In Offal, Salvation”, PLOUGHSHARE shaked the extreme metal underground very violently, making many year end's best-albums lists. Their new EP, “Tellurian Insurgency” follows in the steps of its predecessor boldly underlining an incontrovertible truth: the Australian band doesn't strictly adhere to a metal sub-genre in particular, but opens its arms to a multitude of influences and sounds in order to serve a greater purpose. Black metal, death metal, doom metal, noise rock, post-punk and even the darkest offshoots of electronic ambient: all are bent to PLOUGHSHARE's scorching metal vision, all of them converge in the same cauldron and liquify into an incandescent metal magma to gobble down in one deadly sip. “PLOUGHSHARE is what occurs when we come together as a band,” they explain. “We all bring material, but this will always undergo transformation once we’re together. The music emerges contingently, and in a manner that makes it impossible to inscribe our wills into it. We might all contribute, but we are equally all caught up in it.” “Tellurian Insurgency” feeds on sickness, unbearable oppression and blind violence. There are no apparent constraints, as the music flows impetuous and intense; the only rules are those dictated by the band's expressive urgency, though always disciplined and absolutely focused on the final result. The EP opening tracks, “Abreactive Trance” and “Indistinguishable Beast of Flight”, underline PLOUGHSHARE's preference for visceral and exquisitely twisted sonic trajectories; the remix of“ In Offal, Salvation” (the full-length debut's title-track) adds even more depth to an already amazing song, while “Xeno-Chemical Insider” is an enigmatic and experimental closing number that leaves us excited thinking about the Australians' next musical step.

 

 

CARRIER OF POISON APPLES (LIMITED)

Band:BENIGHTED IN SODOM
Album:CARRIER OF POISON APPLES (LIMITED)
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:DEPRESSIVE BLACK/DARK

BENIGHTED IN SODOM is the most long-lived project of Reuben Christopher Jordan, aka Matron Thorn, founder of ÆVANGELIST, OBSCURING VEIL, DEVIL WORSHIPPER, PRÆTERNATURA, DEATH FETISHIST and OBLIVION GATE, as well as an ex-member of LEVIATHAN, CHAOS MOON and BETHLEHEM. Existing since 2006 -and since then filtering black metal through the lens of shoegaze rock and darkwave- BENIGHTED IN SODOM have always been Jordan's most personal project, a mirror of his existential malaise, and a tool of necessary catharsis. With this in mind, “Carrier of Poison Apples” could be the band's magnum opus, a ride into the darkest hour of the night exploring Jordan's lonely corner of the earth, where no dream is forsaken and love is as tenebrous as darkness. “The album is nothing but the story of myself as a person, though it's relatable for anyone,” he explains. “We all live in an age where everyone is trying to out-occult each other with elaborate artworks made to look like their little heavy metal album was created in some old century and filled with esoteric knowledge. Its escapism like anything else, but the esoteric knowledge in 'Carrier Of Poison Apples' doesn't come from a manuscript or grimoire, it's from a lifetime of terrible events, living among strangers, criminality, transcendent depths of obsession, substance abuse, lust, violence, and other everyday parts of my life.”

 

 

III

Band:IN HUMAN FORM
Album:III
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:PROGRESSIVE BLACK METAL

“III” is arguably the third full-length album of Massachussets' IN HUMAN FORM, a formidable quintet of highly talented musicians devoted to an avant-garde kind of metal with strong esoteric and philosophical tints. Their 2017 sophomore release, the amazing “Opening of the Eye by the Death of the I” was a remarkable blend of aggressive black metal and progressive music, but in “III” the band's style matures and evolves even further, birthing an audacious and breathtaking musical hybrid by perfectly amalgamating the musicians' extreme metal background with their love for 70's prog and jazzfusion. “There were many new avenues that we experimented with, especially guitar solos”, explains guitarist Nicholas Clark; “that really tested out limits and dug up some interesting influences. A track like 'Weeping Stones' was actually recorded live with a few overdubs, to give it much more emotion and tightness; and I ended up using the Mellotron quite extensively as well, as a nod to our 70's prog influences.”

DEATH'S THRESHOLD

Band:SHADES OF DEEP WATER
Album:DEATH'S THRESHOLD
Label:DUNKELHEIT
Format:LP
Genre:DOOM METAL/DEATH METAL

A cult fixture in the funeral doom scene, SHADES OF DEEP WATER began its exploration of the abyss in 2006. The sole creation of one J.H., the band's ascent/descent has been as steady as his music is slow. From 2007 to 2009, three demos were released in succession and then the Constant Pressure EP in 2012, all before the debut album, Waterways, in 2013. Aptly titled, Waterways suggested the aquatic, abyssal themes SHADES OF DEEP WATER would henceforth explore. From there, J.H. hit a creative streak, with two more EPs following as well as two compilations, such was the demand for his music among ultra-doom afficionados. Now, at long last, arrives SHADES OF DEEP WATER's magnum opus, Death's Threshold. Likewise aptly titled, Death's Threshold is a veritable exploration (and celebration) of his native Finland's rich history in funeral doom and doom-death. Comprising four utterly epic, stretched-across-the-abyss tracks in a vast-yet-focused 41 minutes, here do SHADES OF DEEP WATER drown the listener in physically/spiritually crushing atmosphere, dragging that listener down/down/DOWN under, far below the depths and never to return; the effect is hauntingly hypnotic, and almost comfortingly so. But, as this is strictly (and unapologetically) within the funeral doom pantheon, rest assured that there is no light, no hope, wherever the album roams.

For the first time the drums and vocals were recorded in other studio locations while guitars and bass tracks were still recorded at VAULT M. Studios owned by guitarist Maggesson. For the final mix and mastering process REVEL IN FLESH handled over the final files to their long – time companion Dan Swanö (UNISOUND Studios) for a mix & mastering process. Growing over there years as a union the production of „The hour of the avenger“ marks the most vital one in the bands history thus far!

DOLINE SU OSTALE IZA NAS

Band:BEDNJA
Album:DOLINE SU OSTALE IZA NAS
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:BLACK METAL/HARDCORE

From Croatia, Bednja are on to something special. Eschewing the stale black metal template, they have taken elements from other genres such as hardcore to concoct an electrifying blend that harnesses the best qualities of each, topped off with an atmospheric touch. The result is not only largely unpredictable but also energetic, with soothing passages interspersing the violently rampaging parts. One word description for Bednja's music would be fascinating but that would hardly sum up the music that is contained on their debut full length. It's an album that you will keep coming back to for more, simply because it's unparalleled in its expression and the way it's stringed together without seeming contrived. Rarely has this blend of black metal and hardcore made this much sense, embracing the atmospheric and spontaneous side of things while being at it too.

 

 

THE DEATH OF GAIA

Band:OFFICIUM TRISTE (NETHERLANDS)
Album:THE DEATH OF GAIA
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:DEATH/DOOM METAL

Dutch death/doom metal legends OFFICIUM TRISTE, who have been around for 25 years, are back with their sixth full length album titled 'The Death of Gaia'. They're only wiser with age, for the music is just as evocative as always if not more this time around, with better arrangements and variations spread across the album. Their music has this gentle yet overwhelming approach that will leave you in complete tatters by the time it's done. It's beautifully hinging on this balance they've perfected over decades between plaintive melodies and wretched heaviness. Additional instruments such as piano, violin and cello have been brought in and even several guest vocals to lend to this an epic air, further entrenching their mastery over this form of poignant music. For this album they've employed the services of Chris Smith (Grey Aria Design Studio) for the vibrant artwork and of Greg Chandler (ESOTERIC) where mastering is concerned, ensuring that everything is done just the way it was meant to be. 'The Death of Gaia' is the pinnacle of the band's illustrious career and sets new standards even now for others to look up to.

 

 

HERE THE DEAD LIVE

Band:NOX IRAE (FRANCE)
Album:HERE THE DEAD LIVE
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:DEATH/THRASH METAL

Members of the legendary French death metal band CATACOMB join forces with members of AFFLICTION GATE to create raw, thrashy death metal dripping with old school fervour and unbridled passion. Members of both the bands bring their trademark elements to the table - the bloodcurdling vocals of AFFLICTION GATE's Herostratos with the brilliant structuring of the CATACOMB veterans when it comes to the creation of this morbid yet delectably catchy mess. This is old school death metal given new expression through the lens of what these bands stood for, without being plainly derivative or sounding old hat. There's palpable tension and rage all through these six compositions and you'll find yourself returning back to these again and again to hopelessly satiate the flesh-tearing itch. NOX IRAE have made a huge statement with their debut EP and one can only expect great things from them in the foreseeable future

This is truly Mortification at their greatest, their innovative blend of extreme metal styles setting them apart from the crowd.

CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE

Band:R.U.S.T.X.
Album:CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE
Label:PITCH BLACK RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:HEAVY METAL

Formed in 2003, the Cypriot rockers were fully determined right from the start. Truly-from-the-heart and no BS melodic Heavy Metal with classic rocking passages is their absolute passion as one can easily determine with just one listen. Enthusiastic and passionate about everything R.U.S.T.X do, their upcoming 3rd album Center of the Universe will unquestionably convince old school lovers that they do mean serious business. The level of musicianship in Center of the Universe is beyond perfect and the band sounds completely harmonious and in perfect unity. Not surprising since, not only all band members are seasoned musicians, but all four are siblings (!), 3 brothers and their sister, who apart from their instruments, they all share vocal duties! A most definite (and amazing) family affair! Legendary radio producer Robert Camassa, who pens a foreword on the album, couldn t have put it better: This album is like a swiss clock, ticking along nicely, never skipping a beat. This is a band that has paid its dues and has come roaring back with a killer album. If R.U.S.T.X should ever need a blood transfusion it must be Heavy Metal+. Featuring a stunning cover artwork by the amazing Chris Achilleos (best known for his painting of the heroine Taarna, on 1981 s Heavy Metal animated movie poster), the album also features guest appearances by Paolo Nipa (DARK QUARTERER) and Andrea Ramacciotti (DEADLY TIDE). The CD version features 2 bonus tracks, one of which is a cover of the classic Band on the Run (Paul McCartney and Wings).

A DARK LAMENT

Band:MORTEM ATRA
Album:A DARK LAMENT
Label:PITCH BLACK RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:MELODIC DEATH/DOOM METAL

MORTEM ATRA, were formed in November 2011 in Limassol Cyprus and they describe their blend of melodic death/doom metal as an amalgamation of genres, a mixture of emotions . The main lyrical themes of the band s songs consist of internal struggles, aggression & depression, sensitivity as part of the human nature, dark stories and elements that can best be associated with fairy-tales. The band s upcoming debut album A Dark Lament will sooth the soul, while at the same time darken those inner feelings. The atmosphere that the melodic keyboard lines provide, along with the double bass drumming, heavy riffs and growling and clean vocals, in combination with female operatic vocals, will set listeners drifting into otherworldly emotions but always in good companion by some of their favourite metal genres, namely Melodic Death and Doom Metal. All blended into one magnificent arrangement. Special mention should be made to the band s fallen brother, Tasos Bratsos. In 2016 tragedy struck and Tasos passed away after losing the battle with cancer which he had fought bravely. He was in his early thirties at the time and apart from being an extremely talented drummer, he was always positive and highly energetic and undeniably the main driving force of the band. A Dark Lament has been in the making since then and it features his recorded drum parts. With the album now finally completed, the band is of course paying tribute to Tasos by dedicating it to his memory and legacy. For fans of: Moonspell | Candlemass | Paradise Lost | Crematory | Tiamat | My Dying Bride
