FLAMINGO

Band:Uusikuu
Album:FLAMINGO
Label:NORDIC NOTES
Format:CD
Genre:WORLD TANGO FINLAND

In November 2019 it is 20 years from when Finnish singer Laura Ryhänen and her musician colleagues played Finnish tango in Germany for the first time. What was intended as a one-off show, developed unexpectedly into a long-term involvement in the genre. Since 2006, Laura has been touring Europe with her current band Uusikuu (New Moon) providing a fresh perspective to old Finnish dance music. Uusikuu s fourth CD "Flamingo" is released in October 2019 on German world music label Nordic Notes. Uusikuu bows respectfully and admiringly to the heroes of Nordic dance music from the 1930s to the 1960s. Back in the day, dance evenings were filled by music influenced by various genres from jazz and swing to folk, tango, humppa and waltz. Uusikuu lovingly polishes these old diamonds until they shine like new again. The band s approach can be summarised as semi-romantic vintage dance music , the spirit of which is in giving a 21st century makeover to the songs without cutting their roots or erasing their charming period features. The band always plays with a twinkle in their eyes, but beware! We are talking about Finns here and the old Finnish wisdom has it that one should never have too much fun. If the sun always shines bright in your life, you won t see the beautiful stars anymore . The darker shades, melancholy, nostalgia, and longing, are also needed in order to reveal the whole range of life s emotions. And a bit of kaiho (longing) is always around the corner. Kaiho is a Finnish expression for melancholy and nostalgic memories. You can long for a person, an experience or a place that is far away or in the past in fact, you might not have even met them, visited the place or experienced that emotion yet. Nevertheless, you can still feel the kaiho. The mixture of melancholy tangos, dreamy swings, raucous humppas, cheeky jenkkas, and romantic waltzes in Uusikuu s repertoire takes the audience into a world full of emotions and, of course, wanderlust. In addition to the jewels of yesteryear, Uusikuu s own original compositions bring the old tradition to the 21st century. The front lady Laura Ryhänen, with her serene and ironic stories about the of Nordic life, offers the audience an escape from their everyday lives for a moment and, after experiencing a Uusikuu evening, they go home with a dreamy smile. Uusikuu has always actively sought opportunities to collaborate with other artists and genres. In addition to film and theatre projects in Germany, Finland and the UK and numerous performances at various venues and festivals (among others Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Bardentreffen Festival in Nuremberg, Mittelrhein Music Festival, Ulmer Frühling Festival, Scandinavia Show in London, Helsinki Music Centre, Salzhaus in Winterthur and Internationale Kulturbörse Freiburg), the next major crossover project for the band is a collaboration with Württembergische Philharmonie Orchestra and conductor Atso Almila in 2020.

KRYOTHERMALMUSIK AUS DER EISFABRIK

Band:EISFABRIK
Album:KRYOTHERMALMUSIK AUS DER EISFABRIK
Label:REPO RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:ELECTRONIC/SYNTHPOP/ FUTUREPOP

The Eisfabrik is similar to the Area 51: You know it exists. We can see and hear it, but do we know what's going on inside it? At least we got the first internal memo leaked from Y., a hairy employee who wants to remain unnamed. And so it happened that on the 22.11.2019 there was a violent failure of rotation in the Eisfabrik . "This rotation failure can not and will not remain without any consequences", the shaggy employee explained to us. "After this incident, the machines reprogrammed themselves, ice crystals began to glow and the rainbow children let it snow," says Y., who works in ice block production. Y. continues: "With Kryothermalmusik aus der Eisfabrik something completely new has arisen, harmonies and sounds have been frozen together, depths and energies have merged into a genre of their own. Not only songs like "Deeper And Deeper", which introduces the album in an unusually dark way, "Lonely Like A Wolf", "Too Late", the over five minute long extended version of "And Nothing Turns", the club hit "Journey Of Oblivion" and the final "White Sheet" in a cryo-thermal end time version clearly show that the functional failure of 22.11.2019 left refreshing traces. Also potential hits like "No Matter", "We Don't Care", which accompanies the typical electronic sound of the ice manufacturers with an acoustic guitar, "Grim Reaper" or "Opposites Collide", which shows itself with 140 bass drum kicks per minute from the harder side of the band, show unimagined sound worlds. As Y. confirms, the 5th Eisfabrik album will be delivered on 24.01.2020 during the 2019/20 Kryothermalfeste - Tour with Beyond Obsession and Intent:Outtake as support acts. A preview of this new album will definitely be given before the official album-release with selected songs during the live-shows. TRACK LISTING 01 Deeper And Deeper 02 No Matter 03 We Don't Care 04 Grim Reaper 05 Lonely Like A Wolf 06 Too Late 07 Greetings From Far Away 08 Journey Of Oblivion 09 And Nothing Turns (Extended) 10 Back Home 11 Opposites Collide 12 White Sheet (Kryothermalversion)

VENIAMO DAL CIELO

Band:NOVA
Album:VENIAMO DAL CIELO
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Formed in 2003, it would not be until 2014 when NOVA would release a public recording. At last, it came with Il ritorno, courtesy of ATMF. It would be followed three years later by Soli contro il mondo, also courtesy of ATMF. Not for nothing has ATMF aligned itself with NOVA: as proven by these two acclaimed full-lengths, NOVA are masters of epic, pagan-inspired black metal with a uniquely Italian touch. Keeping apace, now arrives NOVA's third album, Veniamo Dal Cielo. Immediately and distinctly NOVA, here we find again a vigorous sound far away from trends, timeless in its craft and execution. No merely digital approach is cheaply or lazily undertaken here; instead, NOVA proudly strive toward a purely analog feeling, instilling life - vital, effervescent LIFE - into ancient, primordial black metal. Within a compact runtime of 35 minutes, Veniamo Dal Cielo brims with strident sorrow and blearyeyed bloodlust alike, retaining the classicism for which NOVA are known. Fiercely focused but still idiosyncratic, they're nearly without peer.

 

 

IGNEE SACERTA CTONIE

Band:COMANDO PRAETORIO
Album:IGNEE SACERTA CTONIE
Label:ATMF
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

Formed in 2011 and featuring members of Movimento d' Avanguardia Ermetico, COMANDO PRAETORIO made their public debut with the Divinità terrifiche EP in 2015. Although the interim has seemed quiet, the band have taken to the stage often and have otherwise been finetuning their debut album. At long last, it bears the title Ignee Sacertà Ctonie. COMANDO PRAETORIO's Ignee Sacertà Ctonie is a tremendous sonic journey about the chthonic fire cult of Mount Soratte, where ecstatic and wolfish initiatic paths were performed by the Hirpi Sorani, honoring the Inner Sun of Apollo Soratte. Transcending the imminent obscurity, a full-throated voice looms large, storytelling across these four epic-length tracks and representing a deeper understanding of this underworld fire cult, its manifestation brought forth through the wrathful archetypes of extreme music inspiration and spiritualistic sound approach. Indeed, COMANDO PRAETORIO here have shaped their glorification of the forgotten energies, the primeval gods, their vibrant black metal belying grey tones and ominous shading, with cresting-yet-somber guitar lines building a massive wall of doom for the modern man not to overcome. A subtle juxtaposition of extremes, this is, the album's overt muscularity evading rote aggression for its own sake and instead conveying more profound sensations, a stern austerity that's custom-built for the strident individualist.

PREMIERS CHANTS

Band:OSSUAIRE
Album:PREMIERS CHANTS
Label:SEPULCHRAL PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Having recently inked a record deal with Sepulchral Productions, Ossuaire emerges anew as the grandiose and impetuous first chapter of a concept spawning two albums and recounting the major events contributing to the downfall of christianity and the rise of heresy resounds. Ossuaire delivers a resolutely unwholesome breed of Black Metal, both corrosive and melodic, bestowing upon this offering an aura that is as dark as it is authentic.
