IRIDIUM

Band:CEREBRUM
Album:IRIDIUM
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:Death Metal

Greek technical death metal stalwarts release a mind-boggling album of intense and complex death metal music that doesn t abandon soul and emotive values in favour of technicality. This is momentum-heavy, rhythmic and visceral death metal that remains challenging while not disrupting flow or memorability. This quality seems long forgotten in the race of being the fastest or most flamboyant, and that is the very reason this experienced band that once boasted of having a Nile member, George Kollias, in their ranks, stands out from the pack. With stunning artwork from Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates) and special mastering from Colin Marston (Gorguts), everything is ensured to provide maximum clarity despite prevailing (and essential) chaos, while retaining a human touch all along. Greek death metal giants return with a smashing new full length release Features artwork by the highly talented Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Feral) The band had none other than the legendary Nile drummer George Kollias on drums The album has been mastered by none other than Colin Marston of Gorguts fame - "an absolute devastator of a record" - Head-Banger Reviews (US) - "masterful" - Dioses Del Metal (Spain) - "damn near perfect" - Cadaver Garden (US) - "impressive intricacy and technical skill" - No Clean Singing (US) - "have stepped forward and grabbed hold of the death metal reigns" - The Dirty Room (US) - "a refreshingly good Death Metal album" - Rock 'N' Load (UK) 9/10 - "great album" - Musipedia of Metal (US) 8/10 - "Wonderfully played, written and produced!" - Nattskog (UK) - "have put the bar too high" - Rock Overdose (Greece) 80/100 - "Something good for those who want something different" - RTMB (Mexico) 7.5/10 - "really remarkable technique" - Broken Tomb (Spain) 7.5/10

 

 

LOST ETERNALLY

Band:CHALICE OF SUFFERING
Album:LOST ETERNALLY
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:DOOM METAL

US band Chalice of Suffering put out a remarkable debut that was very well received the world over and they've followed it up with what's possibly one of the best albums in the doom/death metal style. Where this kind of style goes, it's more about the emotions than the heaviness, and that's where this band excels. 'Lost Eternally' perfectly encapsulates the grief, the stinging loneliness and its bleak outlook. It's a well-rounded album that exudes the right feelings and it's something that's perfect for this time of the year, while being strangely palpable. The album plods on powerfully despite the weight, showing moments of melodic respite and even contributions from several guest musicians and vocalists to further enhance the proceedings. This is as genuine as it gets right from the underground. Delve into this heart-wrenching slab of doleful, atmospheric death/doom metal music and experience life at its cruelest.

 

 

DISEASED REMNANTS OF A DYING WORLD

Band:DODSFERD
Album:DISEASED REMNANTS OF A DYING WORLD
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

Greek black metal heroes Dødsferd have been toiling hard in the underground, releasing albums with untainted passion and bold vision. Be it their raw black metal sound that they started off with, or their excursion into DSBM and black/punk styles, they've maintained that all along. On their latest album, they've further refined the sound and take the best elements from everything that they've been known for and much more. The songs are perfectly tempered and resonate with familiar emotions of anguish, hopelessness, and contempt for humanity and its capability for committing despicable acts time and again. This is a dark and fiery album rife with palpable emotions with shades of melancholy and despair. It is a testament to the expressive power this style holds without straying too far from its core sound.

 

 

CARRIER OF WEIGHT

Band:EREMIT (GERMANY)
Album:CARRIER OF WEIGHT
Label:TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY
Format:CDD
Genre:DOOM METAL

Monolithic sludge/doom band EREMIT give us one of the heaviest and most ambitious album the style has seen in recent times. Featuring stunning album artwork by Mariusz Lewandowski (BELL WITCH), the band trudge through turbulent, winding structures without letting them affect the overall momentum. There are three epic songs, with the longest being over 33 minutes, where they flesh out every nuance and showcase rare depth while retaining unparalleled brutality. Being the band's debut, the emotions are all too raw and palpable, but perhaps that's what's needed to get the point across. This is undiluted, straight-from-the-heart, maxed out sludge/doom with moments of poignancy ensconced in the bludgeoning heaviness.
