L'ACEPHALE

Band:L'ACEPHALE
Album:L'ACEPHALE
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CDD
Genre:ATMOSPHERIC/AVANTGARDE BLACK METAL

album; ten years after their last full length. The tracks on this titanous, 74-minute magnum opus offer a varied, yet focused, listen with copious tension. While staying committed to their extreme metal roots and historical, literary themes, L'Acéphale incorporates and shines brightly with elements of monumental dark folk, spoken word, black metal, and almost martial artforms. On seven epic-length tracks, spiraling with monolithic auras and blasting with furious whirlwinds, L'Acéphale appears at once aloof, yet savage with wild abandon, while at times delicate, but still unbreakable. L' Acéphale is as avant-garde as you can get, while raging with blistering and cacophonous ferocity. Their full-lengths, have all been remarkable... L'Acéphale are set to plunge Roadburn 2019 into a terrifying void of darkness! - Roadburn Festival TRACKLIST 1.Sovereignty: (Dieu Die Sonne stirbt Sovereignty) 2.Gloria in Excelsis Mihi 3.Runenberg 4.Hark! The Battle Cry is Ringing! 5.Last Will 6.Sleep 7.Winternacht

AT THE THRESHOLD OF THE GREATEST CHASM

Band:COSMIC PUTREFACTION
Album:AT THE THRESHOLD OF THE GREATEST CHASM
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CD
Genre:Death Metal

With his two other projects, THE CLEARING PATH and SUMMIT, multi-instrumentalist G.G. has already demonstrated his capabilities thanks to a cerebral and audacious songwriting constantly balanced on complexity and atmosphere, conquering the most demanding appreciators of the extreme progressive metal and post-metal genres. Differently from the past and surprisingly enough, with COSMIC PUTREFACTION the Italian musician drinks from the source of the most furious and eeriest death metal ever, reinterpreting it in the light of a modern wall of sound. On guest vocals, two excellent accomplices: Brendan Sloan of CONVULSING, one of today's most exciting underground metal acts, and XN of the raising death metal stars HADIT. Originally born as an EP containing rearranged materials from the past, At The Threshold Of The Greatest Chasm has mutated into a monumental and annihilating opus organized in 9 steep and obscure epics; 9 short but dense tracks that retain a cosmic aura despite their brutal aggressiveness. COSMIC PUTREFACTION's full-length debut marks an important milestone in G.G.'s short but intense career and it is sure to please the fans of true death metal, old and new.

 

 

A PLACE I DON'T BELONG TO

Band:FALAISE
Album:A PLACE I DON'T BELONG TO
Label:A SAD SADNESS SONG
Format:CDD
Genre:BLACKGAZE

After two acclaimed albums, Falaise are now ready to make a further step in their artistic growth. The main album concept relates to the sense of loss and perdition that human beings suffer for by living in modern megalopolis, so devoid of personality and soul. A Place I Don t Belong To is an urban desire of escapism drowned under a veil of melancholy and sadness. Like homeless wanderers towards nothingness, Falaise members draw a dramatic painting of despondency. Their feelings of loss and confusion take a post-black metal shape, so much that it comes to mind another band that has been part of the ATMF s history, LANTLOS. Falaise s music conjures up the disturbing feeling of being isolated by the world s inner core, where hopelessness and desperation unfolds on grey walls of sound. Dreams and pale shading of solitary consciousness are mingled with the wordless grey reality, but the post rock psychedelic influences do not wash away Falaise s depressive black metal roots, while noise and ambient elements concur to the multifaceted and introspective mood of the album. The third effort by the Italian duo, A Place I Don t Belong To , is a perfect synthesis between the black metal character of the band s debut and the post-rock currents of its come-back, an un-cathartic journey through the sewers of modernity.

 

 

DESTINY CALLS

Band:CHEVALIER
Album:DESTINY CALLS
Label:GATES OF HELL
Format:LP
Genre:SPEED/EPIC METAL

Separatist speed/epic metal from the frozen climes of Finland that relishes in the unexpected while giving metal fans exactly what they want. Destiny Calls, the first full-length from Finland s Chevalier, whips up ferocious speed metal while stretching itself out with epic song arrangements, all capped off by the not-for-the-faint-of-heart vocals of Emma Grönqvist. Bands are often the sum of their influences. Some wear them on their sleeves almost too much, where every riff, vocal line and drumbeat is practically telegraphed, thus, negating any sort of individuality. Others, like Finland s Chevalier are masterful at disguising what brought them into the metal game in the first place. While their avoidance of genre clichés and norms is commendable, it s the band s ability to push the envelope while maintaining an air-tight grip on memorable songwriting that makes their first full-length, Destiny Calls, the intrepid endeavor it is. Recorded across two separate sessions in November 2018 at Black Floyd Analog Studio in Hämeenkyrö, Chevalier made it a point to ensure the rough and ragged atmosphere found on last year s Chapitre II EP was captured. The album s nine cuts including a re-recording of The Curse of the Dead Star from Chapitre II find Chevalier weaving between their speed metal template and labyrinthine song arrangements. It s a difficult balance to strike, but Chevalier (who comprise vocalist Emma Grönqvist, the guitar tandem of Tommi and Mikko, bassist Sebastian Bergman and drummer Joel) found a formula that works for them, namely, the usage of momentous intro segments to kick off each song. From there, it s off to the races with a deft combination of old-school metal savvy influenced by underrated metal heroes ADX and Omen, mixed with progressive song builds. Grönqvist, handpicked to front Chevalier because of her superlative range and the band s desire to avoid having a generic metal karaoke vocalist, is critical to the overall sound of Destiny Calls. She capably controls her powerful lungs on The Immurement, Road of Light and Stormbringer, while teaming up with Tommi on the album s lyrics, which deal with themes of life, death, freedom and destiny. Even though Chevalier is firmly embedded in Finland s capital of Helsinki, they see themselves as outsiders in a fertile, growing scene. Fitting in or going with current trends is contrary to Chevalier s overall purpose, who, admittedly, are less concerned with recreating the sounds of yore and more inclined to carve a path of their own. It shines through on Destiny Calls, an album that breaks with convention while setting an entirely new speed metal pace.

UNALTERABLE

Band:MIST OF MISERY
Album:UNALTERABLE
Label:BLACK LION RECORDS
Format:2CD
Genre:DOOM/METALSYMPHONIC

The conception of Unalterable goes a long way back, as the title track was actually already written in 2014. However, we had no idea that we were going to use it as a title track for our third ful length album back then. The rest of the songs were composed during 2017 and 2018 and the recording of the album has been during that period. This album differs a bit from our earlier releases, both in production and composition of the songs. The songs are longer, darker and more atmospheric than on any previous release and the album clocks in at nearly 2 hours, thus making it the longest we've ever recorded by far. The title Unalterable refers to the path of life, unalterable despite all efforts to alter the course. How you're bound to dwell in this miserable existence until life's end.
