New arrivals from Avantgarde Music

Alternative 4 (Uk) "The Brink" --- Digipak

Doom Metal from Uk.This album deserves to “give it all”: it discloses its depth and beauty step by step, one per every single listen.Apparently “keeping it simple” in their arrangements, Duncan & his team explored details in a subtle performance rather than overlaying a hundred sound tricks.Every single episode [starting with the creeping cello of "The brink", the yet-a-classic "False Light" single, the space-rocking "Alternate", the dramatic tunes of "The dumbing down", the blood chilling keys of "Underlooked" and ending with the cathartic beauty of "The brink (reprise)" (by all means a sonic representation of what i do imagine to feel in my first 15 minutes after phisical death has occured) ] causes underskin goosebumps.So deep that you can actually feel & see your soul, scary but peaceful vision, like an open-casket funeral: both in death and rebirth.(Roberto / Avantgarde Music)

Before the Rain (Por) "Frail" --- CD

Before The Rain have a great potential forged both on the killer melodies of their vocals and guitars and the solid, slow, doomish songs structure. Definitely a record that will be appreciated both by higher class doom fans into Paradise Lost or Katatonia and sonic extremists more into funereal paths of music !

Towards Darkness (Can) " Barren" --- Digipak

This Canadian beast of Doom will unleash a masterpiece of darkness and heaviness that we can hardly remember being reached by other bands in the past. Yes of course there is fashionating music style called Funeral Doom: we all love it but we also know the limits of it. Towards Darkness somehow manage to offer that kind of hopeless grief and sound-space depth, but they do through a really solid and aggressive line-up, able to offer the same apocalypse on stage and not only in a recording studio. For that reason TD never sounds ‘fake’ or ‘studio made’ like instead quite a few funeral doom projects sadly do. Towards Darkness os a perfect mix in between a Finnish Doom Metal band and NEUROSIS: from the first they took the icy depths and despair, from the second instead the giant wall of sound and the general apocalyptic mood.

Xasthur (Usa) "Nightmares at Dawn" --- CD

Compilation consists 14 unreleased tracks recorded between 2004 and 2009!!

18/03/13

New arrivals from ATMF and De Tenebrarum Principio

It’s all in the name: 11 AS IN ADVERSARIES are here to flip the script and destroy the norm. Existing in a stratosphere where rules no longer apply, 11 AS IN ADVERSARIES features the mastermind of extreme-metal rule-breakers Glorior Belli and fittingly combines dark, moody post-punk with the most avant-garde ends of extreme metal. Utterly twisted yet surprisingly melodic, contorting and slithering like a snake, the band’s “The Full Intrepid Experience of Light” seeks its own truth, its own light in the darkness, vast and epic yet brave and unselfconscious. Absorb “The Full Intrepid Experience of Light” and be forever altered. Features the vocalist of infamous/notorious extreme-metal band SHINING on The Night Scalp Challenger.

Deadly Carnage (Ita) "Sentiero II - Ceneri" --- CD

What if Satyricon would have chosen for a different path after the impressive “Rebel Extravaganza” going deeper into the modern Black Metal instead of crossing the borders of rock and groovy music ? Deadly Carnage may be an answer, where a darkly atmosphere is supported by the usual delicatessen of the black metal misanthropy, gas masks, polluting negativism and all the magnificence of rotten modernity. Some may argue about the lonely beauty of rain forest and tourist shape of promotion for Northern Lands export but Deadly Carnage head office is in 'ole Italy, where modern and ancient use to collapse to a fertile desecration, vomiting from the insane womb and hoping for the words the end to come near.

HomSelvareg (Ita) "HomSelvareg" --- CD

A sombre vision of nature meets the tradition of the Italian Alps. The myth of the Homselvareg, an atavist creature dwelling the Alps of the Northern Italian Folklore, is summoned by the merging of elegant and evocative acoustic passages and the raging fury of Black Metal, all transcended in the unstoppable forces of nature. The concept of this album has been shaped by visions occurred to its writer. Those who are into early Ulver , Windir and Enslaved will fit into this anti modern perspective.

After many years those songs to be considered as classics for the Italian band are now ready to be emphasized to a wider and more effective level, spreading their inner black flame, lightning the human candles.

The Cold vision of the rising northlands, the shadow from the past. The Opening of the Primordial Whirl is the new chapter by the Ancient Dolomitic Forests band Near, one of the few bands active today that incarnates the corrupted unholy atmosphere of the early days of the Black Metal recall. Expect nothing but gloomy tones of coldness, a monumental atmosphere created by the echo of nature strength and immortality . Featuring (Tenebrae in Perpetuum & Beatrik member)

Nyseius (Fra) "Militiae" --- CD

Brimming with a hideous energy born from a true understanding of the occult, cult French black metal band Nyseius make their full-length debut with Militiae. Frightening in focus, pure and total energy harnessed through metaphysical magick, the strict and stoic Militiae wholly evokes its title, deftly balancing ancient Scandinavian classicism with a thoroughly avant-garde approach. Dissonant and twisted yet free-flowing in its iciness, Nyseius create black metal that spans generations, both timeless and modern, traditional yet forward-thinking.

Srodek (Swe) "Förfall " --- CD

Like a desperate voice of the lone northern lands, bearing the feeling of the early Burzum’s masterpieces and the visionary transcendence of Svarti Loghin’s debut album, the cold season strikes back like caress of a cold knife. Featuring in fact a Svarti Loghin members Srodek is a lonely spirit, detached from the compromises of modernity, flowing like an echoing dissimulation, a melancholic and depressive chant to draw the human shell to the final chapter. For fans of Lifelover & Shining.

Semen Datura (Ger) "Einsamkeit" --- CD

Black Metal as a renewed weapon can overcome the time passing by, shaped to infect and rage the rotten body of humanity with hateful pride. Semen Datura is the further demonstration of the great time that the German scene is living, performing their most impressive album to date, where personality and skilful songwriting is transcended into a pure form of darkness evocation. Semen Datura music accrue to field that can be associated to bands like Secrets of the Moon, Deathspell Omega, investigating on the deepest corners of the decayed human being.

Urna (Ita) "Iter ad Lucem" --- CD

Esoteric Funeral Doom with immense expressive strength, Iter ad Lucem is another tome of antiquity, where haunting guitar lines drown the listener in a new oppressive and visionary dimension. Masterful avant-gardish attitude is strongly manifested on the drone and mystic ambient madness, manipulated sounds and sinister sepulchral recalls, featuring guest appearance by ritual noise overlord Eidvlon The concept is based on the aeons’ doctrine and the initiation path. If “Sepulcrum” has been receipt by the underground as one of the most innovative and fresh post-black metal funeral doom act this new one will raise their name between those of the most personal and innovative acts, another milestone from the LOCUS MORTIS & ARCANA COELESTIA mastermind MZ.

02/07/12

New arrivals from Darker than Black Records

Bilskirnir (Ger) "In Flames of Purification/Totenheer" --- Digipak

This is the first CD from German band Bilskirnir, a one-man band playing pagan NSBM. Bilskirnir's style is reminiscent of early Burzum and Graveland - raw, yet somewhat melodic. The guitar sound is layered and repetitive, effectively fusing several unique individual riffs into a whole. The drumming is solid, with a lot of cymbal and varied breaks. Vocals are a harsh scream, with occasional throat-tearing moments of aggression. The production is thin, but perfectly mixed, so that guitar, drums, and vocals are well-balanced. The writing here is very solid. Especially worthy of praise is "Die Lichtung". It's thirteen minutes of sludgy and oppressive riffs, all swirling around a central theme. This is probably one of the best songs to cross my desk in months, though the other songs are nearly as distinctive. They range from epic and introspective to short and triumphant, all without a boring moment. In general, this album shows a great deal of improvement over the band's earlier demo material. Impressive, considering the high quality of Bilskirnir's demos. With one Graveland cover song, four bonus tracks from earlier Bilskirnir works, and some re-recorded demo songs, this album isn't entirely new. Even so, it's still a must-have for anyone interested in Bilskirnir's music, or in pagan black metal in general. Standout tracks: "In Flames of Purification", "Die Lichtung", "For the Return of Paganism"

Blodtru (Den) "A Brighter Sun " --- CD

A Brighter Sun is the second full length record of the Danish anti-modern and anti-capitalist one-man project Blóðtrú.

A brighter sun is rising!

Acrosome is an oppressive entity coming from Ankara, Türkiye created by two shining souls D.A. & D.Y. Since the very first spreads of the few promotional audio creations, this combo has got an huge and unexpected interest around. “Dementia Praecox” (dusk002mcd) will be the debut official release of Acrosome consisting of 8 tracks Mini-CD. Solid bizarre structures of atmospheric horror sound from the cellar mind clash bringing the listener to a new concept of freezing and dramatic New Psychological Movement Black Metal.

Cold Body Radiation (Hol) "Deer Twillight" --- Digipak

After the high worldwide acclaimed debut album “The great white emptiness” Holland’s COLD BODY RADIATION is soon to release the second studio album “Deer Twillight” on fall 2011.

The new seven compositions come with a pounding sound structure trying to flout all conventions of usual extreme metal audio structures. ‘Deer Twillight’ captures the cold season in all shades and lights. Winter provided a perfect backdrop for melancholy and inner turmoil. This is a personal journey looking for hope in bleak circumstances. Trying to capture the overwhelming beauty and despair of winter.

Grisâtre (Fra) "Esthaetique" --- Digipak

Esthaetique is the second Grisatre full length album on Dusktone label. This time Rokkr created a personal journey perhaps even more introspective and oppressive than the previous acclaimed “L’idée De Dieu” album. Grisatre involve the listener in a timeless and emotionally expansive trave of discovery, evaluation and reflection over the course of the album’s 45 minutes. Grisâtre produces a music aiming at the call of the feelings which take to the reflexion, to the discovery of an unconscious occult knowledge, it’s also a personal representation of visions, perceptions. A vision Artistically metaphysical.. Grisâtre is an idea (Conceptually).

Lilyum (Ita) "Nothing is mine" --- CD

Active since 2002, having already put out a long list of CDr and tape/demo only releases, this is Lilyum’ first pro-CD release. Although it is inspired by modern War Black Metal style, Lilyum create music that is intensely original in it’s orientation : thumping violent drum-war-machine, hyperblasting guitar riffs, brutally abrasive voice from beyond create a demonic wall-noise and blasted atmosphere perfectly orchestrated by multi-instrumentalist Kosmos Reversum. The nine-song “Nothing is mine” will bring you in a magisterial earth-shaking journey of your most wildly mind abandonment.

Lotus Circle (Gre) "Caves" --- Digipak

Lotus Circle’s sound expression is based on an experimental karma of genres such as Doom, drone, black Metal, noise/electronic music always under the sign of a spiritual Inner Ritualism. “Caves” is a truly monster of warm and enveloping drone bringing the listener to an unknown and somewhat psychedelic level. After five years from the previous praised ”Bottomless Vales and Boundless Floods” album, LOTUS CIRCLE are back for a new spiritual catharsis.

Hand made artistic cover, 8 pages booklet and 46 minutes of devastating and morbid Black Metal aggression.

Gravsorg (Den) "Visions of Depression" --- CD

Gravsorg (Denmark) is much more than just another “depressive” Black Metal band. Having a personal experimental style, they perform down-tempo darkness, hymns to depression and decay… 8 tracks of doom negativity and black ambient frustration for the late night hours of isolation. Gravsorg recording is far one of the most abstract of it’s kind and it’s only the beginning…

Ignis Uranium (Ger) "Azimuth Nuctemeron Frequency" --- CD

Chaotic necro Thrash/Black Metal from Germany. Ignis Uranium recorded 9 powerful & well structured tracks for this debut album with a crushing production.

Seven years after the debut album (Vertus Guerrieres) on NYKTA, Athros returns with 3 long duration tracks in a limited MCD. After his contribution in acts like Ur Falc’h and Forteresse, it’s time to awake the Nordmen beast again. Raging Heathen Black Metal dedicated to the cold winters and howling northwinds. Balancing magic folk melodies with Pure Black Wrath, this MCD is definitely worth checking.

Prevalent Resistance (Fin) "Eternal Return " --- CD

New arrivals from Dusktone

Be Persecuted (Chn)"I.I" --- LP

Finally available on vinyl version this seminal debut album of the first chinese extreme metal act. CD version originally released by No Colours, Germany. If you put on “I.I” and fast-forward to a random point in the album, you’ll probably be greeted with a relentless wall of atmospheric noise which carries a distinct feeling of drowning. Blastbeating drums and extremely harsh vocals are mixed low against buzzing, heavily distorted guitars. Unlike many recent depressive black metal releases, the human voice is not the primary focus of Be Persecuted’s sound. The instruments all work together to a sort of harmonious smothering effect. Often, the listener feels like he/she is underwater with the fuzzy yet razor-sharp guitars, hearing the rhythm section and vocals being played from above the surface. The result? A truly desolate vibe that, by the end of the second to last song, faces certain death with a smile. This is a solid (if unspectacular) piece of suicidal black metal, the kind that will only reach a certain group of people already inclined to such nihilistic sounds. If you know exactly what to expect, I.I. is an album for you. Recommend it for solitary listening, introspection, and catharsis.

Beyond Helvete (Ger) "Self Therapy" --- Digipak

“Self Therapy” is a journey through yourself emanating directly from the heart and soul. In this stunning new full length album Beyond Helvete crosses various styles of rock and metal. Lyric contents mainly came from psychic matters in a negative and misanthropic view following the composer’ deep artistic mind. “Self Therapy” is purely emotional music creating deep and dark atmosphere, alternating monotonous structures as well as powerful and fresh riffing and drumming. These sound-waves will bring you from the struggle inside yourself into a final calm catharsis; the alchemical harmony of Black Metal, rocking wall of sound, depressive/curative touch will leave the listener with a sense of unforgettable trance-state. The CD is released as a noble 6 page matt digipack, all artwork by : Stephen Lenfestey.

Deadman (Ita) "Spirito di Pietra" --- CD

“Spirito di pietra” (Spirit of stone) is simply the result of a constant process of emptying, a progressive loss of a condition beyond Man and his own dimension. A powerful and ambience black metal, sometimes apocalyptic, purely experimental, with post-rock, industrial, and psychedelic finishing touches, generating Orwellian visions where melodies, stuffed with a continuous lifetime-long research, echoed and are accompanied by the mystique of the Shakespearean sonnets and Pound’s dizzy verses.

Not to be missed!!

Funeral Fornication/Uruk-Hai (Can/Aut) "Split" --- CD

As a precursor to Funeral Fornication's forthcoming full-length album 'Pandemic Transgression', comes the split album with Austria's legendary Uruk-Hai, a project that Vultyrous has cited as a strong influence throughout his many years as a musician. Both projects on this album carry their own distinctive sound yet the album flows together as a solid entity and each artist's work complements the album as a whole. Uruk-Hai delivers his brand of epic, LOTR-inspired ambient black metal in the vein of Summoning, while Funeral Fornication continues to grow with each sequential release adding new elements to his sound including a cover song of UK doomster 'Solstice' with clean vocals!

Netra (Fra) "Mélancolie Urbaine" --- CD

The street lights are colder than usual, how come I am so moved ? I feel the urge to escape, to make everything vanish for a while. netra's Melancolie Urbaine album is one of the most original metal albums to be released in a very long time and something that is truly unique. Many influences have been leading the writing process of netra including extreme metal, trip-hop, rock and blues. This album is an incredibly atmospheric journey to your innermost thoughts and nightmares and transcends the typical depressive black metal soundscapes. Raw guitar work, absolutely stunning ambience, powerful melodies, jazz-esque solos, and an atmosphere which has the capacity to drown you in a world of depressing urban landscapes. Released in a standard jewel case in an edition of 1000, this is one of the best albums of 2010 and is not to be missed for any fans of Shining, Manes, Katatonia, Bohren und der club of gore, or someone who is getting tired of depressive black metal bands going through the motions.

The Foetal Mind (Fra) "The Grand Contraction" --- CD

A largely instrumental metal album, filled with powerful, catchy and atmospheric riffs that bring about the concept of The Grand Contraction. A very guitar based album that should please all metal fans regardless of genre, The Foetal Mind's first Professional CD shows an incredible evolution in the sound and concept of the project. The guitar work is highly melodic, catchy, and much more prolific in its approach than most black metal albums and can draw comparisons to the Amott brothers work in Arch Enemy. The overall atmosphere of the music is perhaps stronger than ever for this project. This album itself can be described as a mixture of black metal, doom, and traditional metal with a strong emphasis on melody, and a clear production quality that does not belittle the atmosphere of the music. The Grand Contraction further proves why this project should be considered one of the premier underground metal bands in France.

New CDs from Doom Specialist-Solitude Productions

Abstract Spirit (Rus) "Tragedy and Weeds" --- CD

Album “Tragedy And Weeds” has become a new era in the bands work, denoting the transition to a new, high quality sound, more thoughtful material, and the desire to mature. The team once again became a trio, but the Abstract Spirit has ceased from a side project of famous musicians to a full band, performing live shows. “Tragedy And Weeds” is the same sludgy funeral doom, full of fleeting touches of depressive black. Melodies, filled with despair, and if is filled with schizophrenic delusions, evokes feelings of anxiety and fear, casting the listeners down into the abyss of despair. The sound of wind instruments resemble the old, sad, funeral orchestra, accompanying the low belly growl, hysterical cries and sepulchral recitative. All this gives birth to a unique atmosphere Abstract Spirit!

Astral Sleep (Fin) "Angel" --- MCD

A novel work from Finnish band. EP “Angel” consists of three parts featuring more traditional doom-death metal style compared to their debut album. This makes their composition more monolithic both conception-wise and music-wise. Nevertheless, the band keeps their gloom and heaviness according to the genre requirements: the exceptional work for true lovers of the doom-death metal.

Ea (Rus) "Au Ellai" --- CD

The third album of this enigmatic band combines the conceptions laid in their previous albums: exalted lightness of «Ea Taesse» and severe darkness of «II». Unique atmosphere of Ea fuses epic funeral doom with atmospheric ambient adding touch of classical music to the work’s canvas. Melancholic piano, beautiful guitar solos and choirs create a monumental memorial to ancient civilizations bringing their echoes in enchanting Ea music. The epilogue of Ea trilogy is the start of the path to the roots of the World.

The second full-length album of German band. New material, even more harsh and gloomy is professionally produced and ready both to bring joy to old fans of traditional doom-death metal and to attract interest of those who just has started to get familiar with the genre. “Withered Shades” accumulated heavy riffs and acoustic passages, combined dynamic parts and atmospheric interludes. The new album of Ophis is a new precious book in the world library of doom..

Revelations of Rain (Rus) "Emanation Of Hatred" --- CD

The third full-length album of the Russian band further develops ideas of the previous albums. Revelations of Rain presents high-standard uncompromising doom death metal. Even more heavy material featuring high record quality is close to early Evoken works and is saturated with depressive mood of estrangement and deep thoughts of world futility. Forget about violins, roses and romanticism: only gloom and hate fill this undoubted pearl of the genre. With their new record Revelations of Rain confirm their status of one of the best Russian doom metal bands.

Stoned Jesus (Ukr) "First Communion" --- CD

The long-awaited debut album from Ukrainian stoner doom metal band. After recording several demos and performing a number of gigs appreciated by the audience Stoned Jesus summarized all their experience in “First Communion”. Besides the influences by such masters of the genre as Sleep, Electric Wizard and Saint Vitus the band features a powerful load of psychedelic rock and old good blues rock. Groovy guitar riffs, suspension lasting until the last minute of the record and professionalism bring the band to the leaders of Ukrainian stoner scene. Guest appearance of members of The Grand Astoria, X-box Murder and Without God evidently approve this position.

The Howling Void (Usa) "Shadows Over the Cosmos" --- CD

The second album of project of the talented musician Ryan reveals new masterpiece of symphonic funeral doom metal! “Shadows Over The Cosmos” has a potential to become a master form of the genre along with best pieces of such bands as Colosseum and Ea: five endless tracks of majestic funeral doom filled with cold enigma and infinity of Cosmos.

Additional sense is brought by a picture called “Thaw” by a Russian painter of 19th century Feodor Vasilyev used in the artwork:. The CD is printed with pit-art and gold plated.

The Sullen Route (Rus) "Madness of My Own Design" --- CD

The debut album of young Russian band from Volgograd continues traditions of death/doom metal and represents the band as talented professional musicians.

Only pain and despair as travelmates, Tod chants the only one possible, naked, hopeless wisdom : the human misery. A provocatory, intense, dramatic black metal opera, in the veins of Nehemah, Carpathian Forest, Forgotten Tomb. Alternating furious, livid passages to bittersweet moments of deep sadness, Tod depicts the human canvas with the deepest of black and a lugubrious orgy of grey. That's really all.

Lyrics are not related to the previous concept at all and now it´s used Czech language exclusively. Music techniques are more varied and sophisticated, the sound is precise, clear and dynamic. Songs describes dreamy and real visions about hardness and segmentation of the earth and human soul. We infiltrate into depths of rocks for mineral materials to behold the work of masters, these journeys are very tempting, but if we do a step in the wrong direction, the Death followed with a horrible scream, will strike us and throw us down into a vertical flooded mine. The album is for its connection with mines in Stříbro dedicated to the local Miner´s historic association and for the same reasons to admirers of the legendary band Master´s Hammer.

Beneath the Frozen Soil/Negative Reaction (Swe/Usa) "Split" --- CD

This split presents a bitter and unforgiving struggle between the raw blackened Doom Metal of Swedish Doomsters Beneath The Frozen Soil, and the well-known hateful Sludge of New York's gods, Negative Reaction.

The Weak Creation is the band's second full-length album and it brings 8 tracks of black metal that is varied and sick (epic, yet raw and chaotic).

Lords of Bukkake (Spa) "Desorden Y Rencor" --- CD

Desorden y Rencor is the second album from Spanish trio, Lords of Bukkake, and it brings 40 minutes of sickening slow motion Sludge/DOOM filled with dirty riffs, greasy feedbacks, high-pitched nuts vocals and lots of effects and electronics in the background. Extremely heavy, psychedelic and noisier / weirder than any of their previous material. Think Iron Monkey meets Swans meets Grief meets Godflesh meets Esoteric meets Eyehategod and you are still not even close. Album has been mastered by Bri Doom (Lazarus Blackstar) at Studio 1in12.

Mourning Dawn (Fra) "For the Fallen" --- CD

Two years after the band's self titled album, Mourning Dawn is back with eight new pieces of despair and not less then 70 minutes of their unique painful Black/Dark Metal.

This album is not a tribute for the nineties and the glory days of the genre, but a proof that Doom/Death is still kicking in the twenty one century and even more relevant than ever. Doom on!

Volition (Uk) "Volition" --- CD

The full-length album of this British gang delivers eight songs of punishing sick Doom that consist in ultra heavy downtuned guitars, slow pounding drums, guttural vocals (from deep grunts, to fucked up screams) and an excellent dirty, yet crushing production!

Arcana (Swe) "Le Serpent Rouge" --- CD

Over 50 minutes of eerie, cold and raw Black Metal! A masterpiece made up of freezing atmospheres, ambient passages and a truely original sound!The darkest shining star of the deepest underground!!! (The Oath)

Palace of Worms (Usa) "The Forgotten" --- CD

"A dizzying blend of troo black metal buzz, and experimental post rock, which is evident from the first few seconds of the record, beginning with haunting majestic synths, then a brittle lo-fi blast of metal, that sounds like it was played on a mandolin, or pitched up, before the song proper kicks in with a wall of frenzied super saturated black buzz, croaked vokills, and buried in the mix blast beats, switching gears multiple times throughout the song, chugging doomic sprawl, to gnarled Deathspell style blackprog, with plenty of tangly guitar lines and lurching tempo changes, clean guitar, very reminiscent of another aQ BM fave Woe, the same sort of melodic sensibility fused into a seriously harrowing chunk of grim black aggression. The rest of the record follow suit, dipping occasionally into ultra raw, old school black metal pound, weird almost industrial shoegazey ambience (sounding a bit like Nadja or Jesu), classic midtempo Burzumy blackness, awesomely creepy Eastern tinged black ambience, almost Katatonia moody sounding melodic blackness, but always returning to that furious heaviness, all lightning speed riffage, hellish vox, dizzying complex rhythms, soaring synths, but all infused with that strange, and subtle pop element that turns grim and black into something much more interesting, and makes Palace Of Worms another band to add to SF’s black pantheon."(Flenser Records)

Oren Ambarchi (Aus) "In The Pendulum’s Embrace" --- Digipak

Returning again to the hallowed halls of BJB Studios in Sydney, Ambarchi expands the scope and range of his unique musical language, incorporating an even broader pallette of instrumentsand sensibilities. Despite the use of glass harmonica, strings, bells, piano, percussion and guitars, it's startling that the world created is still unmistakably his own, and that there is such a cohesion of vision throughout the albums's three lengthy pieces. With this record there's an even more tenuous coexistence of fragility and density; sounds as light as air mingling with wall shaking low-end. The converted already know the kind of trance-inducing euphoria of Ambarchi's music. Newcomers will be scouting the back catalogue...(Southern Lord Recordings)

New Black Metal band from France. Check out the band's myspace page:

http://www.myspace.com/hsntheeye

(Self-released)

Nekrasov (Aus) "Into the No-Mans-Sphere of the Ancient Days" --- CD

Nekrasov is a black metal / ambient noise crossover project very much in the vein of Vargr, L’Acéphale or Miasma, and has to be judged in those terms – those looking for straightforward black metal should look elsewhere. The swirling, smudgy black and grey artwork of the album’s classy digifile sleeve gives fair warning that this isn’t a run-of-the-mill BM release, an impression immediately confirmed by intro track ‘Freedom From Self-Joy’, a ferocious maelstrom of teeth-on-edge feedback, textured drones and abrasive industrial noise, which leads into the title track, ‘Into The No-Mans-Sphere Of The Ancient Days’, opening with low-key brooding dark ambient atmospherics, before the black metal assault spews forth in a venomous wave of snarling vocals, blastbeat drums and dirty riffing, something like Les Legion Noires or similar lo-fi BM bands. However, this doesn’t last long before the lengthy (13-minute) centrepiece track ‘Ashes Of The Lords In My Hand’ returns to deep whirring drones, heavily distorted vocals, all malevolent hisses and whispers, and thunderstorm sound effects evoking a hostile atmosphere of discomfort and dread. (Self-released)

Nekrasov/Humiliation (Aus) "Split" --- CD

Nekrasov is weird rumbling transmissions from beyond the veil, ancient and futuristic sounding at the same time. He veers from blown out caustic screams and blasting machinery driven black metal to massively oppressive hum and click drone meditations. Humiliation are Ontario's most negative band; embracing the self-collapse of modernism and finding the sacred in the profane. The sound of music falling apart from disease. Industrial without resorting cheap goth-rave black metal shit.(New Scream Industry)

Nekrasov (Aus) "Cognition of Splendid Oblivion" --- Digipak

This recording marks the third full length in over a year and has been crafted intensely in order to hurt and bring about maddening disillusion to the listener. The artwork and packaging is the most evolved of the Nekrasov releases features the best work to date by Exotic Corpse. A nobel six panel digi-pak with uv spot to enhance the depth of this release.(Siege of Power Records)

Tyrael (Ger) "Der Wald ist mein Zuhause" --- CD

Consists of Shaxul (ex-HIRILORN, ex-founding DEATHSPELL OMEGA member, SABBAT (Jpn) session member, etc). and DRAKEN (ex-Putrefactor). "Loudun la Maudite" forges even more holocaustic and obscurity, inspired by their majestic and mysterious myths of Pictavia. Those possessed by their 2003 demo tape easily know what to expect from this obscure album.

Atomizer (Aus) "Caustic Music For The Spiritually Bankrupt" --- CD

The bleakest, most powerful ATOMIZER offering, completely evolved and removed from the conjurations of any other thrash or black metal outputs of today. The band has stripped down their already well-known style and dejected the atomic metal power with a dismal aggression full of depth and gritty catchiness backed by a strong murky production, compliments of Kurt Ballou (Converge). In addition to the radical audio and superb gloom packaging, guest contributions have been made by drummer Sean Cummiskey (Astriaal), Iscariah (ex-Immortal, Dead To This World) and Yasuyuki (Abigail, Barbatos).

Cerekloth (Den) "Pandemonium Prayers" --- MCD

No bullshit Death Metal the way it used to be played. Nothing fancy or technical here, just simple, catchy, non compromising, evil death worship recorded at Necromanteion Studio (Funeral Winds, Infinity, etc).

"From the river of Styx to the womb of judgement". Booklet features a nice metallic silver foil stamping.

Deiphago (Phi) "Filipino Antichrist" --- CD

The ultimate annihilation in audio torture is now at hand! In this time of over-saturated bestial metal, Deiphago blazes their own barbaric trail to introduce Satanic Metal to the world and expose the posers as the the wimps they are. This record annihilates all the pretenders and offers the most punishing, primitive & bestial attack of 2009!! With a background of demo tapes throughout the 90's & their debut full-length endorsed by the Ross Bay Cult, the Filipino Antichrist's succeed in making this hi-speed attack even more rewarding than before. No wannabe Fallen Angel Of Doom, no wannabe The Oath Of Black Blood, no Angelcunt or even War Cult Supremacy. Just pure uncompromising, unconventional violence: this is bestiality. Deiphago are the true beasts.

Destruktor (Aus) "Nailed" --- CD

A real value for your money: quality silver & metallic foil print on black paper.Raging for well over a decade in the isolated land of Australia, Destruktor have stood the test of time with a few EPs and a demo under their bullet belts. Now after much anticipation the war beast strikes again with their debut full-length album entitled "Nailed" featuring 10 new tracks of the highest degree accompanied by blasphemous Riddick illustrations. Harnessing the essential elements of fore founding extreme metal troops, Destruktor deliver a dark brutal desecration of exceptional warring bestial black metal of death that easily rivals those in the same battlefield. Destruktor will win the war... with or without your support!!!

Evil Army (Usa) "Evil Army" --- CD

This Hells Headbangers re-issue has a re-worked layout with new interior artwork & band photo.Some of the very best real thrash around these days! Not to be lumped in with the latest craze of crappy thrash polluting the underground. Features 13 tracks of demonic driven speed metal with a raw hardcore attitude. For fans of old SLAYER, D.R.I., old METALLICA ("Kill 'Em All" era). GET THIS!

Havohej (Usa) "Kembatinan Premaster" --- CD

The second full-length album is now complete! Deemed to be the grand master of unholy darkness and black perversion, "Kembatinan Premaster" destroys all past work & is the definite Havohej ritual to be observed by ALL devotees of the genre. Easily the ultimate contender on the bestial black throne of metal to deliver such complete utter fucking darkness so very few can capture. "Kembatinan Premaster" is a single meditation consisting of 8 parts in 37 minutes of total fucking blackness with acclaimed black vocal vomits and signature style profanatic percussion. This is the continuation of the now classic Ledney atrocities committed in 1993 and yet again breaking major ground 16 years later.

You won't escape TRENCH HELL's hammer!!!

Victimizer (Den) "Resurrected Abominations" --- MCD

Prepare to be blown to smithereens... An unreasonable take on fast, hard hitting and head splitting diabolical thrash/black/speed metal with a downright crushing, powerful and mean sound. Surely not to disappoint any fan of bonebreaking armageddon metal.

Profanum (Pol) "Profanum Aeternum - Eminence Of Satanic Imperial Art" --- CD

Most innovative and the most mysterious Black Metal band on Earth, always standing alone in their own, dark world of sounds. Mournful opus of five dark, majestic, infernal symphonies with no use of guitars or bass or any "typical" metal sound, but replacing it with symphonic orchestra instruments - like piano, violins.

In 2004, the entities behind the band started working on a new work, “The Empty Eye”, which was released in 2005. Now that the creature has got the respect it deserves, OF DARKNESS is ready to unleash some new requiems and oratories.

Defuntos (Por) "Sangue Morto " --- CD

"Sangre Morto" is unique on many levels, not least because of its dependence on an instrument often conspicuous by its absence in BM. This gives rise to a hollow and subterranean sound that UG denizens should savour. It's an unusual and disturbing ride that hits like a crossbreed of Inquisition and Esoterica. Fans of Nortt should appreciate this in a big way. Lo-fidelity funereal black metal has a new standard bearer.

Viaticum (Usa) "Reliquary of the Horned One" --- MCD

US Orthodox Black Metal. Debut release, three track MCD limited to 500 copies.

New CDs arrived from ATMF, and Fall of Nature Records.

Arcana Coelestia (Ita) "Le Mirage de l'Idéal" --- CD

After the brilliant feedback of the previous "Ubi Secreta Colunt" the mystical creature Arcana Coelestia comes back with "Le Mirage de l'Idéal", a superb merging of dreamlike guitar riffs, evocative singing, but without fleeing away from the funeral doom's heaviness. Arcana Coelestia is one of the three creatures of MZ, mastermind of Urna and Locus Mortis, this chapter features also the collaboration of Sephrenel of Absentia Lunae as bass player. This new opus will become a dangerous trip for those into Primordial, Anathema, Shape of Despair, My Dying Bride, Summoning, Novembre, Esoteric and Alcest.

Janvs (Ita) "Vega" --- CD

After their brilliant debut album "Fulgures", JANVS' "Vega" represents another big step forward for the band who managed to realize its most musically and lyrically complex, rich and unpredictable work so far. An eclectic and intense effort which goes beyond any easy definition of musical genre. "Vega" consists of 7 new songs for almost 50 minutes of music and includes important contributions from various guest musicians. Starting from the basis of the milestone "Fulgures", the progressive influence showed before by the band becomes clearer and stronger culminating into an haunting visionary form of expression. Giving voice to a constant quest, to the fiery longing for a lost point of reference which constantly glimpses through the ever storming sea of the flowing eras, "Vega" lets the potential dispayed by the band in the previous release finally bloom, confirming JANVS as one of the most deep and unique acts in the current independent scene.

Joyless (Nor) "Wild Signs of The Endtimes" --- CD

There are bands so much capable of writing history that their intuitions become a trend for the followers. These bands can be rightfully recognized as fathers of their musical genre. Wild Signs of the Endtimes collects material from 96-99 and will unveil amazing moments of madness for those into the pessimistic rock-shogaze bands going on today, played as usual with the incredible spontaneity of the black metal legends Rune Vedaa & Olav Berland (Forgotten Woods). Joyless is a personal way to mix melancholy, folk, rock, shoegaze, avantgardish and depressive black metal echoes in a cocktail of raw emotions.

Sanctus Nex (Uk) "Aurelia" --- CD

The Coldness can be manifested into different forms in its timeless truth. U.K. based Sanctus Nex are the modern black metal wanderers, their harmonic and disharmonic tunes a current of perception. A trip into usual and unusual shadings starts there, where Black metal is a constant recall but a departure point to develop a new visionary and evocative journey. The traditional black metal instruments are just a gateway to depart from the mortal, the vision is luckily, far beyond… Sanctus Nex are the feverish mood of introspection of Deathspell Omega detached from the Judeo-Christian paradigm, walking a different occult path, drenched into the heritage of their island: in pursuit of Albion.

Svarti Loghin (Swe) "Empty World" --- Digipak

Svarti Loghin are destined to become the Swedish point of reference for words like skillfull, emotive and depressive Black Metal. The gloomy atmosphere of their debut leads to progressive territories and to strong disharmonic and melodic vibrations. Empty Wold is the anti-modern anthem which sophistication is the feeling of the music itself instead of any sort of instrumental joy. Empty World is like a twilight gradually covering Midgard, the demonstration that Scandinavia has still something unique to offer to the Black Metal and obscure music scene more in general. The awesome songwriting can sometimes recalls the darker feeling of Forgotten Woods’ “The Curse of Mankind” or younger bands like early Alcest but it’s something beyond. Attractive like nature but in the meantime deadly “Empty World” is the hard cider that will lead to watch the last breath of this vanishing world.

Funerary Call (Can) "Dark Waters Stirred" --- CD

Heralded as one of the progenitors of black ambient music, Funerary Call returns from dormancy with his darkest release to date. "Dark Waters Stirred" is a ceremonial maelstrom of ominous electronics and dark ambient textures, an audial descent into ritualistic obscurity and misanthropy. Features guest appearances from the likes of Deathlord (Blasphemy, ex-Conqueror), and Troy Southgate (H.E.R.R., Seelenlicht) amongst others.

Helcaraxë (Usa) "No God To Save You" --- MCD

Nearly 30 minutes of death metal insanity that will tear your face off. Hail the old school!

Nekros Manteia(Aus) "Deus Otiosus " --- CD

With 'Deus Otiosus', Nekros Manteia present obscure and brooding layers of texture. Rusty coils of aural depravity act as a catalyst to self-reflection and lucid contemplation. This work seeks to confront the listener with ill-concocted hymns of lament. "Deus Otiosus; Leave the universe, let stars devour abominable life!

Nekrasov/Moon/Nekros Manteia (Aus/Aus/Aus) "The Haunting Resonance" --- CD

"A conceptual work has been forged, and three of Australia's most obscure bands come forth with ghastly fruits from beyond the tomb. A horrid exploration of ghosts and spirits; Close your eyes and experience... The Haunting Resonance". Three lengthy tracks of ghastly, cavernous sounds. Blending the boundaries between dissonant Black Metal, hypnotic droning soundscapes and destructive sounds of dark ambience. This is audial darkness in it's purest form.

T.O.M.B.(Usa) "Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemy II" --- CD

Recollecting selected fragments from the past of one of underground music's most mysterious and obscure forces, "Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemy II" serves as an archival release of today's leading Black Noise artist T.O.M.B. Resonating with a pulsing necrotic ambience and saturated in graveyard ritual noise, this is only for the most extreme of tastes.

Helcaraxë (Usa) "Broadsword" --- CD

Sanctus Daemoneon (Den) "Grey Metropolis" --- CD

Spawned with no specific genre in mind yet carrying elements of dark ambient, doom, soundtracks & black metal without sounding like either one of them. The debut album, “Grey Metropolis,” was written, recorded, mixed and mastered during a period of spiritual turbulence and crafted with uttermost perfection - dedication can never be faked! “Grey Metropolis” is surely the most personal outlet either one of the members have ever been involved in.

In Tormentata Quiete (Ita) "Teatroelementale" --- CD

“Teatroelementale” is a brilliantly crafted masterpiece that takes both the fragility and passion of humanity and moulds it into musical/lyrical concept that turns around the eternal live-and-outlive struggle. Delicate melodies and mighty distortion sound are the principle on which ITQ has his roots trying to give people simply great emotions. There will be everything from the italian tradition of Folk-Progressive Rock via an avantgardish Black Metal form a la SOLEFALD to the theatricality of the great DEVIL DOLL. It’s a music influenced by any sound that gives emotions… each single element delivers you to be amazed and to dream.

Liquid Graveyard (Spa) "On Evil Days" --- CD

Former member and frontman in legendary British Death Metal band CANCER, John Walker, is the mind behind this schizophrenic project. Groovy melodies extremely varied in texture and feel, with a huge rhythm section and with a vocalist that shifts between stunning soprano highs and semi-spoken tones, and a full of menace growl, is what LIQUID GRAVEYARD proposes, spanning from Progressive territories to a much darker place, taking up the challenge of dark, Death Metal where bands like Dominion, Opera IX and Atrox left off. For friends of original Metal with an open-minded vision of music, Liquid Graveyard is definitely a band to keep an eye on.

But the combined influences of the members’ previous engagements (ranging from death metal and stoner to post-rock), extensive use of spacey synthesizers and something as rare as a talented vocalist, result in an interesting sound, quite unique to the genre.

New CDs arrived from Eerie Art Records and Heidens Hart

Common Grave (Ita) "Il Male di Vivere" --- CD

The COMMON GRAVE debut album, "Il male di vivere", is an ambitious and profound concept album about the "spleen", the suffering of everyday life. It’s possible to consider a long suite of 65 minute, divided in 8 long chapters, where all tracks are linked together (this means no silence between each tracks) and where there's a perfect equilibrium between dark black metal, avantgarde touches and acoustic passages. An imaginary journey between early SHINING, FORGOTTEN TOMB and even DRUDKH. A complex album that unveils itself listening after listening, offering many moments of rare beauty. Everything supported by an excellent performance of these skilled musicians and a professional sound. If you are looking for evolved depressive/dark black metal, COMMON GRAVE can become your therapy to get your daily dose of sorrow.(Eerie Art Records)

Enmerkar (Usa) "Starlit Passage" --- MCD

A fantastic voyage through time and space. A monolithic and atmospheric black metal opus, with intense and chaotic moments, acoustic passages and drone interferences. Multiple guitar layers and whispered distant vocals sustained with an elaborate and skilled drumming work, performed by Tentakel of brillant TODTGELICHTER. An outstanding piece of art for fans of bands like DRUDKH, WALKNUT, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM... Mastered from A.O.D. (ETERNITY, KATHARSIS...)(Eerie Art Records)

Obitus (Swe) "March Of The Drones" --- CD

Hate! This is the only way to describe "The march of the drones"! Brutal, destructive, abrasive black metal with razor-sharp guitars and hysterical drumming that sometimes leaves the space to some mid-paced post apocalyptic and martial passages. A release that defies all preconceived concepts of any normal album: 45 minutes of uninterrupted music all recorded as one seamless arrangement. The style can be described like a mix of WANING for the melodic side, NIDEN DIV. 187 for the non-stop assault, and some ANAAL NATHRAKH for the apocalyptic feeling! A concept album that can be summarized as a multi-pronged attack against the non thinkers (like the drones they are) of the world, a relentless attack on heard mentality of the intellectually lazy, enriched by a deluxe 28 pages booklet that includes all lyrics! Mastered by legendary Peter In De Betou (ENSLAVED, KATATONIA...). (Eerie Art Records)

Vhernen (Fro) "The Funeral Era" --- CD

Here's a monolitic release for all VHERNEN fans, a precious collection of two "old" records.

Something deep and sorrowful, in vein of acts like NORTT and DEINONYCHUS but with the personal sound (including his classic cello) that represent the VHERNEN trademark. "S.y.b.e.r.i.a.", the first classic Ep, finally available again after two years! A real masterpiece of funeral black metal, highly praised by media and audiance worldwide. A obscure sound full of mournful feelings, sinister ambiances and distant desperate whispered vocals. (Eerie Art Records)

Waning (Swe) "Population Control" --- CD

"Population control" is a sumptuous mix of emotions and brutality, atmospheres and controlled chaos, modernity linked to the classic. Tons of guitar layers to create a real wall of sound, a thundering rhythmic section and impressive evil vocals. The WANING is a personal way to intend extreme music... martial and depressive, avantguardist and visionary black metal, with slight indus and post-rock vibes. Everything supported by a powerful production and a superb studio performance. A new wave of fresh and inspired black metal. (Eerie Art Records)

Ancestors Blood (Fin) "A Dark Passage From The Past" --- CD

Compilation gathering the three demo's from '04, '05 and '06, showing the roots of the bands' famous epic sound. Now for the first time put together, remastered and released on cd! 16 pages booklet with all original artwork, lyrics, photos.

Ancestors Blood (Fin) "When the Forest Calls" --- CD

Brand new second album of epic and highly atmospheric pagan black metal. Powerful production, catchy and bombastic keyboard melodies and aggressive guitars and vocals.

From the darkest depths, from the deepest caverns ov unexistence, the unholy prayers for the coming ov the Lord echo and thunder high and low. Eternally dedicated to the glory of our Master, FUNERAL GOAT is a channel of His will. This unholy entity, summoned by His loyal servants, - HerrAIDS and Ludas - manifests itself in a form of pure Orthodox Devilworship!

Primitive and raw, yet entrancing and hypnotic chants, played solely for His glory and in His name!(Daemon Worship Productions)

Sadistic Grimness (Swe) "Asteni" --- CD

From bleak and funeral emptiness comes forth SADISTIC GRIMNESS. Do you feel this rotten stench from beyond the grave? This suffocating, blinding and devouring stench of desolation and death.... It surrounds you and gets through you, infecting your soul with ancient fear and bloodfreezing terror. Where graves burst wide open and legions of the dead arise and prowl the earth in their morbid lust for FLESH, where endless horizons are flooded with blood and gore, where you can no longer distinguish life from death or day from night, stands SADISTIC GRIMNESS. Drawing influences from the most ancient of Death Metal Cults and the darkest of Black Metal Hordes, they represent the malevolent force of real Death Metal; wicked and grim, atrocious and painful(Daemon Worship Productions)

Aarni (Fin) "Tohcoth" --- CD

Tohcoth is Aarni´s second full-length album and contains a plethora of musical styles ranging from various subgenres of doom metal, 70´s prog and folk to ambient, while remaining charmingly guitar-driven. A number of chord progressions and melodies have been implemented so as to cause beneficial effects in the listener (hopefully) according to the principles of "sacred geometry". You may find the album´s overall atmosphere somewhat proggy, experimental and freaked-out. The themes on "Tohcoth" consist of occultism and futuristic theories, brain-change and collective and personal liberation... with added Lovecraftian, alchemical, mythological, Discordian and Thelemic content. Languages featured this time include English, Latin, Finnish and Enochian. Tohcoth also features what may be the first ever recording of "The Battle Hymn of the Eristocracy" from the cult classic book Principia Discordia. As on Aarni´s critically and popularily acclaimed debut album Bathos, the Finnish media personality Sampo Marjomaa has contributed guest vocals and VV from the band Umbra Nihil plays most of the drums. The album has been lovingly dedicated to the late great Robert Anton Wilson.
You will probably find "Tohcoth" more brutal than your mom, more sensitive than your dad, more wicked than your uncle, more Kabbalistic than Madonna, straighter than Manowar, more proggy than Slayer, more balanced than Jesus or Moses or Mohammed, more educated than Hitler, more scientific than Dawkins, more honest than any government and perhaps less emo than you.(Epidemie Records).I got only 1 copy left in Distro, if you are into progressive music, do not miss out

Dantesco (Pri) "Pagano" --- CD

Dantesco is today the most famous HEAVY METAL band hailing from the isle of Puerto Rico.“Pagano” shows from the first notes an incredible change in Dantesco’s offering compared to the first album, with the distinctive and operatic vocals of Erico “La Bestia” taking the lead, perfectly accompanied by some of the most classic guitars you can hear in today’s HEAVY METAL scene.The songs are built again on an epic and heavy metal background, reminding of classic acts such as Mercyful Fate and Candlemass but sometimes, with their complex structure, going even further back in time to the 70s, to the roots of hard rock/heavy metal. The lyrics, in Spanish, deals with historic and mythological events and figures such as Beowulf and Anibal and the Crusades, but also with Pagan themes as the title in the end suggests.

New CDs arrived from Nothern Heritage

Baptism (Fin) "Grim Arts of Melancholy" --- CD

BAPTISM is known as one of the most reliable Finnish black metal acts with it´s instantly recognizable, yet deeply traditional, sort of puritanical "Eliterian" musical worship and esotericism. Referencing both older metal and a newly awakened purpose for a more extreme form of Luciferian art, BAPTISM´s work is always more than mere music - it´s a theistic black metal ceremony. As it is, "Grim Arts of Melancholy" stands as a natural continuation of the work BAPTISM initiated in the 90´s. Sargofagian´s articulated vocals unveil mysteries of a blackest nature in the foreground of a deeply darkened, almost insane, mostly mid-paced riffscape, which seems this time to have kept to a minimum the use of beautiful counterpointing of melodies. Old-school thrashing parts are captured amidst songs in their flight across godless depths, yet return to obscurity as soon as the listener is awakened from the morbid trance of a mid-paced minor key hammering. For most of the time the whole album sounds like one single extended ceremonial track dedicated to Azazel or some other force whose name is unknown to mankind. It achieves this atmosphere without using standard tricks such as extremely lo-fi production; in fact, this one probably has the clearest and most dynamic production BAPTISM ever had. It serves it´s purpose here to highlight the nature of the album as a sort of anti-symphony, a prayer, a clear vision of doom. The messages of BAPTISM´s "Grim Arts" are serious prophecies, not entertaining background music! 6 panel cover booklet including exclusive artwork and for the first time all lyrics printed also in CD version

Baptism (Fin) "Morbid wings of sathanas" --- CD

Clandestine Blaze/Satanic Warmaster (Fin/Fin) "Split" --- CD

Satanic Warmaster (Fin) "Strenght & Honour" --- CD

Northern Heritage is proud to finally present the definitive reissue of possibly the single most powerful Finnish black metal album of the late 90´s: "Strength and Honour". Combining the satanic aggression of early Finnish black metal with the arising militant pagan awareness, this album was instrumental in the subcultural development of Finnish (black) metal. A reissue was deemed necessary because thousands of copies have been sold in several different editions, but lacking the clarity and perfection of a definitive version. That version shall be available now. Despite being a well-known name these days, SATANIC WARMASTER was known from it´s inception as a serious and provocative project. It´s musical awareness of black metal tendencies from EMPEROR to MUTIILATION and moreover, awareness of the heritage of ancient pagan traditions both in national resurgence and through the witchcraft of Satan, the adversary, with it´s unconscious symbolism to modern heavy metal youth as the destructive energies in man, makes the album concrete and evil. It´s possessed with a feeling that makes you think it´s mere presence will turn over tombstones and set churches on fire. Halfway through this album, back in ´99, this reviewer was turned from scepticism towards modern Finnish black metal, to acclaiming it´s potential future existence as a radical artistic force. The truth of this prophecy has since been proved numerous times, by the same artist, and others unmentioned. Whereas SATANIC WARMASTER´s demo works presented a rather different style, the spiritual root of the later works must be found in the obscure, almost secret work of BLUTRACHE, whose demo has been dug up from the archives to serve as part of the current reissue. Also the bonus track "Legion Werwolf" from S&H tape and vinyl version is included here. The CD is remastered from the original master tape with a different vision in mind and has better dynamics and definition, yet containing the esoteric power of the original savage production. The booklet includes new artwork, all the controversial lyrics plus an expanded manifesto revealing some of the aims of the artist in originally creating this Carelian Pan-satanist manifestation and a meditation on its consequences and where he now stands in respect to it.

New "dishes" arrived from Autopsy Kitchen

Ensepulchred (Usa) "Suicide in Winter's Moonlight " --- CD

USA's best kept secret in the torrid underbelly of the black metal world rapidly return with a new release! Originally released in an extremely limited run of hand numbered cd-rs in slimline dvd cases in 2006. This final and definitive version also includes a completely re-designed layout with a few newly recorded tracks not on the original version. "Suicide In Winter's Moonlight" is 16 miserable tracks of lugubrious, woebegone black fire.

Funereal Moon (Mex) "Satan's Beauty Obscenity" --- CD

Funereal Moon have been creating Satanic audio blasphemies in this world since 1993 with the debut release of their "Prayers Of The Crystal Tablet Of Beli" demo cassette. They have had a unique approach to the dark arts from their very inception and it has only grown phenomenally over the decade since. Funereal Moon eventually returned from absolute obscurity however and began recording full time once again much to our own pleasure.This is the first new Funereal Moon recordings in years: "Satan's Beauty Obscenity".

Marblebog (Hun) "Forestheart" --- CD

Originally released in 2005 on simple tape only format (later to be re-released on tape again!), Marblebog's conceptual blend of anything but jovial ambient passages and deeply personal as well as mature, nature and global depopulation inspired black metal eventually bled it's way onto a super limited CD pressing. All of which made their rounds across the world to end up in the collections of the most die hard and adventurous music lovers and underground black metal fanatics. Here it is again reissue on CD from AKR

Silencer (Swe) "Death - Pierce Me" --- CD

Probably one of the most influential and pertinent black metal recordings to effect today's black metal climate, Silencer is world renowned for their unique blend of psychotic melancholia and somber black atmospheres. They accomplished this with only one album ever recorded. Recorded between 1995-2000 and originally released in 2000 by Prophecy Productions. It can be said that more popular bands of today such as Xasthur and Leviathan might perhaps be itching that ghost limb were Silencer to be eradicated from history. "Death Pierce Me" is available once again in it's original form with a slightly different layout than the original version.

Torch of War (Ger) "The Principle of Cosmic Instability" --- CD

Furious German black metal sitting atop the throne of scathing, uncaring & unabashedly cold records of this genre. Every single track a gem on it's own and every riff completing the circle started by Darkthrone with Transilvanian Hunger. A record made by Torch Of War for Torch Of War...this beast left in tow for your ritual worship.

Thou (Usa) "Peasant" --- CD

Every now and again the rare occasion arises that you come across a record clearly created by fanatics that simply can't help but stand apart from the crowd. Fanatics that have deep roots in nothing else but bashing out the most grim yet beautiful sounding doom.. doom isn't the genre here, doom is the atmosphere. Eyes peer beyond shadows and blood flows beneath footprints. The world is not as vast as the mind. Reality suffers the consequence and we are it's slaves. "Peasant" is Thou's 2nd full length after their debut LP "Tyrant" and both LPs were summoned in their hometown of Baton Rouge, LA which many here in the states consider the home state of that true soulful doom vibe somewhat akin to Motown via Detroit. Unlike many bands of the ilk, Thou doesn't just simply plow over you with riff after unbearably crushing riff over the duration of the album but choose to riff over your soul track by track with more venom per ounce than is likely healthy by any standard. Needless pain and suffering are all around you, Thou are not the answer... they are the alternative. No true pleasure can ever be experienced without a healthy dose of pain. Look no further.

Marblebog/Vorkuta (Hun/Hun) "Wanderings" --- 7'

Anyone with an ear to the underground or just good taste in what it has to offer are surely familiar with Hungary's Marblebog, and recently riding that same cold, deep and despairingly black wave are countrymen Vorkuta. Marblebog contribute "Uttalan Utakon", a ferocious 7 minute bass driven beast of a track that begins with a fire that only years of black metal tradition can ignite and then segues into a deep deep canyon of despair as only Marblebog know how. Most have never heard Marblebog sound like this as it is their most mature material to date and despite activity on numerous splits recently, Marblebog hasn't had a full length in quite some time. This split will leave you begging for it... Fellow countrymen Vorkuta attack this split with a brand new track "Prophecies" which certainly isn't the lighter side of this release. Written in 3 parts (War/Cleansing/Triumph) the track is a blazing assault in tribute to man's oldest pastime. Those already familiar with Vorkuta absolutely need this in their collection as (like the Marblebog track) it is some of their most mature work to date. PINK Marbled vinyl with 2 sided full colour inserts.

First part in the series of experiencing the concealed underwater mysteries, manifested through experimental Black Metal.(Ahdistuksen Aihio Productions)

Slave´s Mask(Fin) "Faustian Electronics & Bruise Poetry" --- Digi pack

As a counterbalance to raw black metal releases, years of delays and several drawbacks, AAP has finally the honour to present the debut album of Slave´s Mask "Faustian Electronics & Bruise Poetry". Kaarna and SG.7 have poured an absinth-odorish coctail FE&BP into a glass ready to drink, using the finest elements of their several artistic works in the mixture of the potion, consisting of nine organic, polished, pounding and pulsating semen injections to the rubbercunt underlining the attraction not to life, but to its exceeded rate. As a sugar at the bottom of the glass, the quaff has been decorated with luxurious six-panel digipack with four lyric cards, thus making it even more irresistable to devour this deceitful drink down the throat. (Ahdistuksen Aihio Productions)

Profetus(Fin) "Coronation of the Black Sun" --- CD

"Heavens are dropping with black seed of Doom when Profetus´ congregation burdensomely shambles its burial march onwards. Scandinavian Funeral Doom pioneers of the early ´90s have had a big part in the process of shaping Profetus as the embodiment of their despondency. Yet their musical roots in Finnish underground Black/Death Metal scene lay a strong effect of rawness on their solemnly forged sound - finally burying everything under a suffocating blanket of northern snow. "Coronation of the Black Sun" offers 4 tracks & 50 minutes of Funeral Doom in devastation of solitude, saturnine bleakness and despair - guided with lyrical & conceptual luciferian light shed by the author Johannes Nefastos to invoke this majestic and mesmerising journey into oblivion."(Rusty Crowbar Records)

12/09/09

New CDs arrived from Supernal Music

Capricornus (Pol)"Alone Against All" --- CD

Debut album from Capricornus' (THOR'S HAMMER, ex-GRAVELAND) eponymous project. The explosion of disgust towards the system based on illusions of equality, freedom, and brotherhood culminates 10 years of the band's existence. Similar in style to THOR'S HAMMER's 'Three Weeds from the Same Root', but with more extreme vocals and a more radical stance, as well as cosmic ambiance.

Dark Ages (Ukr)"A Chronicle of the Plague" --- CD

DARK AGE's second album continues offering us minimalist Dark Ambient from the main member of DRUDKH and HATE FOREST, this time more melodic than before, and inspired on the horrors of the Middle Ages. Between the fall of the Western Roman emprie in A.D. 476 and the fall of Constantinople (capital of the Eastern Roman empire) in 1453, Europe was ravaged by plagues and superstition. Greek was largely forgotten, and with it much of the learned texts of antiquity. 'A Chronicle of the Plague' is a musical tale of the terror of 1349, which depopulated entire villages and decimated Europe's human population; the disease was not understood at the time, and therefore it was assumed to have been the wrathful punishment from the Judaeochristian Deity. Alas, prayers were of no avail...

Dawnfall (Ger)"Drei Räume" --- CD

Recorded many years ago, this is the long-vaulted successor to the infamous "Dominance of Darkness" debut. Weird, nightmarish, disfigured, you will most likely be repelled at first by what these Germans recorded, walking the thin dividing line betten torture and demented genius. Yet this is a clever work, necro and avant garde at the same time, grimly deranged.

Ethereal Woods (Uk)"In The Forest of Arden" --- CD

Second album from this Warwickshire entity. Same dreamy mysticism and sylvian sensibilities, but now with heavier guitars, a generally more robust sound, and more confident dynamics. A step forward from the debut.

Ethereal Woods (Uk)"Kenilworth " --- CD

Third album. This time ETHEREAL WOODS return with an even heavier sound (now touching Death Metal), retaining their Doomy and melancholic sound while infusing a dose of sylvian fantasy into their unique Elizabethan theme.

Woods of Infinity (Swe)"Hopplös Väntan " --- MCD

Very long mini-album, with six tracks and clocking in at half an hour. This talented duo offer us here some very strange tracks: they are, of course, full of the depressive melodies and melancholic desperation that constitute their trademark sound, but the tracks are very twisted and obscure, done in the weird, sarcastic way that only WOODS OF INFINITY would.

The Meads of Asphodel/Mayhem (Uk/Nor)"Jihad / Freezing Moon" --- CD

Split of two excellent bands in CD format with bonus tracks, lyrics, and controverail artwork.

Dolorian(Fin) "When All The Laughter Has Gone" --- CD

Dolorian, a word reminiscent of grief, perfectly embodies the very essenced of the band; expressed through slow yet powerful music where flesh tearing vocals portrait their own gloomy vision of daily, real life.Impossible to come up with a specific range of musical influences, for the band spans from doom to dark ambient, but those lovers of sickening atmospheres will relish " When all laughter has gone " the band's very first output.
