TERMINATION SHOCK

Band:MAJEURE
Album:TERMINATION SHOCK
Label:MUSIC FEAR SATAN
Format:CD
Genre:Zombi/Goblin

MUSICFEARSATAN is very honored to release "Termination Shock", the third album from MAJEURE (A.E. Paterra of ZOMBI). Described by Paterra as his coldest and darkest work yet, the eight tracks deliver very personal, minimal, and intimate ambient music, a mix between kraut rock and new age music with infinite layers of synthesizers in the vein of TANGERINE DREAM or STEVE REICH. Unlike his ZOMBI partner STEVE MOORE, who is very influenced by synthesizer based music of the 70's and 80's for his solo works, Majeure's music reminds us of the cold digital aesthetics of the late 90's and 2000's - like a forgotten David Lynch soundtrack.

MAJEURE is the solo project of ZOMBI (RELAPSE RECORDS) drummer / The two previous MAJEURE's records were released on TEMPORARY RESIDENCE (GRAILS, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, MONO, etc.) / MAJEURE toured Europe in 2014 with TRANS AM AND played ROADBURN FESTIVAL 2015.

For fans of JOHN CARPENTER, GOBLIN and STEVE REICH

SABBATH ASSEMBLY - CD

Band:SABBATH ASSEMBLY
Album:SABBATH ASSEMBLY - CD
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Sabbath Assembly's new album marks a new beginning for the band: its “Great Schism” from the Process Church of the Final Judgment. Like the albatross falling from the mariner’s neck, the band has freed itself from the cult’s theology in order to explore its own creations with no special guest appearances or narrative frills. Sabbath Assembly is, in fact, a decidedly metal offering, for in the writing, the band returned to its own personal roots in the dark age of the '80s. These are Sabbath Assembly’s own “hymns” for their own “church” – a place marked by passion, devotion, and the gospel of metal. The primary thematic difference between Sabbath Assembly and its predecessors is that this album is about embodiment, addressing all the power and grit required to endure our human existence, rather than addressing spiritual philosophy alone. While the songs reference occult literature, such as Robert Chambers’ The King in Yellow, Valeri Briussov’s The Fiery Angel of Desire, and The Gospel of Thomas, these texts were chosen not because of their abstraction from the mundane, but rather their propensity to embrace it as a means to spiritual understanding. If something is to be taken away from the new Sabbath Assembly album, it is this: the mysteries of occult philosophy are revealed not through celestial charts and diagrams, but rather the subtleties of earthly love and loss.

STRAIGHT SHOOTER

Band:SPEEDTRAP
Album:STRAIGHT SHOOTER
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Speedtrap’s sophomore album, Straight Shooter, will hit the shops September 11th via Svart Records. Speedtrap's debut album, Powerdose, took many by surprise and left many established acts eating dust on several end-of-the-year lists in 2013. Metal Hammer called it "metal fed on a diet of Motorhead and alcohol, Exciter and suspect powders – high octane and hellbent for leather” while InvisibleOranges.com considered it a “fist-raising triumph.” Since then, Speedtrap have performed across the European continent and also gone through some lineup changes: Jaakko Hietakangas (ex- Ranger) has joined the ranks as second guitarist, and Antti Salminen has taken up bass duties while earlier bassist Markus Hietamies has switched to the drum-set. Even though Speedtrap still are a loud, obnoxious bunch of catchy riff-mongers with no regard for speed limits, Straight Shooter also showcases the band’s ability to push the envelope and, with their new dual-guitar setup, write memorable songs that twist and turn like a drag racer on LSD.

ORDEAL

Band:SKEPTICISM
Album:ORDEAL
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

A legendary name in metal circles, Skepticism are widely hailed as one of the originators of funeral doom. Their first album for Svart and fifth overall, Ordeal is also the first Skepticism full-length since 2008's Alloy. But instead of going the usual recording-in-the-studio route, the band decided to record this new album live before an audience on January 24th at Klubi in Turku, Finland, with the event also captured on film. A truly unique experience for a truly unique band, Ordealis a honest and accurate summary of what Skepticism is in 2015. "Recording the album live was a positive experience. I've come to think of Skepticism being at its best live, and the Ordeal session proved it for me," says keyboardist Eero Pöyry. "Having a whole day to concentrate in one shot at a perfect performance brought in a good pressure - and a bit of an ordeal, as well." Adds drummer Lasse Pelkonen, "Recording live made the album sound a bit rough and dirty, which is suitable for us in any case." "Recording live suited me well as a musician," Eero continues. "Only being able to fit in what your hands and feet can do at a time made me play only the essential." The album will be available as a CD/DVD bundle and also as a LP/DVD set, featuring visual documentation of the whole Ordeal performance. "It is hard to think of a more street-credible approach to recording an album," contends Lasse. "I think metal is good only if one can recognize it as such by sound and arrangement. This happens on Ordeal." "Life is an ordeal, the album is about ordeal, and making the album was an ordeal," guitarist Jani Kekarainen explains. "To me, the music of Skepticism is essentially dynamic and atmospheric. These qualities in music are best presented live. Hence, recording live made it possible to capture the most authentic result for the album." Adds Lasse, "I am personally very happy with the new songs. They contain a lot of atmospheric changes and layering but still sound like Skepticism." "It is difficult not to be and difficult to be," concludes vocalist Matti. "Ordeal is what music is - genuine without further explanation."

PHARMAKON / PHARMAKOS

Band:SHABDA
Album:PHARMAKON / PHARMAKOS
Label:ARGONAUTA
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Pharmakon / Pharmakos is the third album by Shabda, a year after the highly acclaimed psychic journey of Tummo. Voluntary hermits established in the rural countryside of Canavese, Piedmont, they fulfill, with this work, a rite of foundation, emanating their blanket of dense droning sound to link distant yet compatible musical mythologies. The two suites forming the album shape time, space and repetition building a sound that drives West and East to confront in the field of pure sound: it's not doom, nor folk, nor drone in strict sense, but the heavy golden thread that structures the homogeneity of compositions draws a monolithic identity, simultaneously saturnine and solar. Stylistically, Pharmakon is based on Raga Kafi, tinging it in Middle Eastern shades before crashing on the obsessively guitar oriented drift of its climax. Pharmakos gives off its textural essentiality on the vocal and rhythmic cells of Tibetan mantric music, pushing tension towards the void: then its features are stripped to the bones of an overloaded metal behemoth to investigate pre-existence, life, death and continuity. Pharmakon / Pharmakos speaks about alchemy without using words, through the evocation of pure sound images, vertically ascending the axis mundi. Like Janus, with one face to the west and one to the east. Also, Shabda in partnership with Argonauta Records will actively support Nepal populations affected by the earthquake by donating 10% for each copy sold of Pharmakon/Pharmakos album to Nepalese children through Save the Children.

MAGIC

Band:MEN OF NORTH COUNTRY
Album:MAGIC
Label:COPASE DISQUES
Format:DBL 7 INCH VINYL
Genre:Soul/Funk/Disco

Men of North Country (MONC) emerged from Tel Aviv’s soul scene, bringing with them a fresh approach to creating the perfect three-minute soul nugget. The band started by chance, when soul DJ Yashiv Cohen was overheard singing along to the tunes he was playing at one of his Tel Aviv Soul Club parties. With the encouragement and eventual collaboration of his musician friends they formed Israel's finest soul outfit. And whilst managing to stay true to their beloved 60's Soul they also introduce a contemporary, fresh and personal twist. In 2010 Acid Jazz Records, put out their debut 7" - the double A-side single “Man of North Country/Debut”, which garnered glowing reviews (including a warm recommendation from London’s Metro). When MONC toured Germany copaseDisques label grabbed this chance and recorded 4 songs with the band at Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Studios in Hamburg.

What you hear on this double 7" are three self-penned Soul smashers and soulful cover of the Who's "TheSeeker". Brace yourself up for your next favourite turntable spin. Let alone their forthcoming second full-length album on Acid Jazz Records, to be released later this year.

This summer the fourpiece-ratpack straight outa Berlin will release their debut album on TCM. The „madness“ 7“ was quite a cool scenesmasher – Deaf Forever’s own Götz Kühnemund tried a look into his Rock’N’Roll-glassbowl and wrote something like „...one of the extraordinary discoveries of the last year“. Not only fanziners were sure about this rising star, also bookers of a few high ranking festivals like Freakvalley, Desert Fest or Muskelrock liked to have the guys on their bill. It was quite a shureshot for them, cause the twin-guitar powerhouse blasts riffs into the audience till everyone in in a good rock n roll mood. This machine is made for killing... and that although Travelin Jack are not the new „inventers of the riff“ – but they take the best ingredients of R.O.C.K. – „New World“ is the essence of rock music – with an extra accentuation on „riff“ – write it hollywood-letter-big and you’ll get the picture. But even this other bands do as well, so what’s the hassle about, you ask? The definite V2 all destroying super weapon is Travelin Jacks combination of three main influences of rock music – power, riffs and soul! TJ’s singer Alia Spaceface takes you by the hand and guides you into the vaults of the great 60s female soulsinger – think of something like the Detroit Cobras without being 60s garage rock. The music is straight end 70s glam influenced powerrock. Think of UFO, Suzi Quatro or The Sweet – make-up, plateau-boots, capes, flying V’s and tons of glitter! All this, combined with a bad ass production by berlin’s one and only Richi Behrends – kicks massive ass and makes you wanna dance and bang your head – i promise!

PASSAGE

Band:ALDA
Album:PASSAGE
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

The fittingly titled “Passage” finds Alda further strengthening their bonds as musicians and honing their style into an even more earthen and evolved fusion of black styled metal often revered in their location, and a passionately spirited folk presence. Alda have noticeably grown as songwriters while not forsaking the roots of their core sound. It marks a vital addition not only to their own impressive catalog, but to the ever growing North American “black metal” community. Passage is an all-encompassing journey into the mountains and environs surrounding them, another monumental release combining nature oriented aspects, underground metal DIY ethic's and spirituality.

"In short, if Agalloch, WITTR or even old Ulver ever moved you, you need this." 8 /10 TERRORIZER

 

 

LUWTE

Band:Fluisteraars
Album:LUWTE
Label:Eisenwald
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

The band's last year debut album titled "Dromers", was firmly rooted in the fertile soil cultivated by Drudkh, Primordial or even Agalloch, nevertheless built its own aura. Excellent reviews at the press, whilst also garnering end of year list entries and other critical accolades along the way, hailed Fluisteraars as one of the new potent stalwarts of Dutch black metal. Blending the welcoming, epic affair of their debut with more harsh and biting effort's more reminiscent of 90s black metal, Luwte captures the band from a slightly different, yet none less qualitative angle. While the band had already shown their effective vigour with time stretching melodic and edgy grandeur, this second album is very much the more ferocious finished extension to it. An unpolished yet elaborate production with final mastering duties taken over by Patrick W. Engel at TEMPLE OF DISHARMONY perfectly suits the dynamic, intelligent nature of the music.

 

 

KING HEAVY

Band:KING HEAVY
Album:KING HEAVY
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

KING HEAVY was formed in 2009 by ex-Procession founder Daniel Perez Saa and Luce Vee known for being the vocalist of Belgian Doom Metal act Hooded Priest. Shortly guitarist Matias Aguirre and drummer Miguel Canessa were added to the line up and in 2014 the band self-released an EP entitled “Horror Absoluto” which was later repressed on split-vinyl by French label Emanes Records. KING HEAVY is so much more than nowadays mono-dimensional, superficial doom metal. King Heavy rocks! Aside from strong elements of Candlemass and of the more traditional doom metal sound, KING HEAVY offers tons of EPIC arrangements and a twisted touch that definitely reminds of Black Sabbath’s “Born Again”, Celtic Frost “Into the Pandemonium” and the early, darkest side of Danzig.

INTO DUAT

Band:MAGISTER TEMPLI
Album:INTO DUAT
Label:Cruz Del Sur
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

After having deeply explored the different aspects of Crowley’s philosophy on their previous releases “Iao Sabao” and “Lucifer Leviathan Logos”, Norwegian occult heavy metal band MAGISTER TEMPLI returns with its second full length, “Into Duat”, in which they focus thematically on some of the central myths and gods of the Egyptian Mythology (“Duat” is the realm of the God Osiris). As in their 7’’ “Nyarlathotep” from 2014, the band has moved even further away from their doom-inspired beginnings, towards a more openminded musical experience strongly based on filthy traditional heavy metal. Heavy guitars, intense drumming and authoritarian, preaching vocals are key ingredients. The album is recorded in Oslo at Evil Octopus and Sorcerer studio, with former band member Simon Aarset as technician. The cover painting is done by the German painter Stefan Bleyl. “Into Duat” will be released by the end of August, followed by a strong live campaign which will bring the band to play at the No Sleep Til Dublin Festival 2015 and afterwards on an European tour with Christian Mistress.

ENDLESS VOIDS

Band:DEAD NEANDERTHALS
Album:ENDLESS VOIDS
Label:ALONE RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Alone Records is proud to announce the upcoming release of 'Endless Voids'. This is the album title that the Dutch harsh free jazz duo DEAD NEANDERTHALS chose for a very special project entirely performed at Incubate Festival 2014. They invited a group of stellar musicians from all around Europe for one monolithic and grotesque concert. During the 80 minute 'Endless Voids' performance, elements of drone, doom, noise and free jazz are combined and transformed into something that can be seen as the soundtrack to the apocalypse.

Endless Voids begins like it's recreating a sort of Neolithic messaging service; a multidimensional grumble emanating from deep within the hunebedden, transmitting subsonic messages to other subterranean nerve-nets such as the control centre in Silbury Hill or the Sardinian caves. There are also lots of wheezes, whirrs, whistles and scratches, and the odd muted blurt from Otto Kokke's sax; all creating a flurry of activity going on the higher registers early doors, building up a palpable sense of tension that doesn't even think of spilling over till much, much later. In fact this LP is so heavy it only gets its underpants on round the 20 minute mark, when it decides to hitch a ride on a passing cloud formation. From then on it thunders and groans around the stratosphere like a lost, pissed up Jotun looking for the last bus to Blackpool. Maybe it's never coming back.

WAX AND GOLD

Band:TRACY BONHAM
Album:WAX AND GOLD
Label:BURNSIDE
Format:CD
Genre:Alt Rock

Musical journeywoman, Tracy Bonham has announced the release of her new album Wax & Gold. This is her first new album in five years and was entirely funded by fans through Pledge Music. Recording was split between Bonham’s current hometowns, Brooklyn and Woodstock, NY with assistance from Producer Kevin Salem (Yo La Tengo, Rachael Yamagata) and a talented group of friends (including Langhorne Slim). The resulting album is her most immediate and at times rootsy. First single “Luck” balances beauty with some down n dirty blues guitar. While the title track, which is immediately catchy has a timeless Americana feel, driven by acoustic guitar and deftly picked banjo. Lyrically Bonham admits that Wax & Gold is also her most personal work. Inspired entirely by her five year old son, and defining her own notion of family. On the experience Bonham relates “In-between the last album (2010’s Masts Of Manhatta) and this one, my husband and I adopted a son. He comes from Ethiopia and the adoption process was very long, full of up’s and downs and ultimately rewarding. It’s amazing to me how parents and children who come from opposite sides of the world can come together and their history, their culture becomes interwoven. I wrote a song for this album called ‘This Here’s My Grandpa’s Guitar’ and it’s about this Baritone Ukele he used to play from the 50’s or 60’s. It was a part of my memories of him and now it’s in our house and so it’s part of my son’s life. It’s a connection between this long-gone man from Oregon and this boy from Ethiopia and both of them very dear to my definition of family.” These metaphors and messages are referenced in the album’s title as well. Wax & Gold being derived from a term used in Ethiopian literature and culture. A term meant to describe a way of telling stories that have two meanings, Wax for the superficial meaning while the gold is the true meaning. At the close of this year it will mark the 20th anniversary of Bonham’s Gold-selling debut The Burdens Of Being Upright (Island Records). Initially pegged into the alterna-grrl category due to breakaway single, “Mother Mother” Bonham quickly dispelled that title with music that jumps from folk, blues, country and rock within a single album. In addition to four previously released full-length and five EP’s, Bonham has toured extensively as a vocalist for The Blue Man Group during their live music concerts.

BUMP

Band:THE STANDELLS
Album:BUMP
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Garage Punk

Bump, The Standells return with their first album of all new material in over 45 years! They are back with attitude and better than ever. Including the hit tracks 7&7 Is and It's all about the money! This is album is pure Garage Rock bliss from beginning to end! This is what Larry Tamblyn has to say about it.

"In recent years, the Standells had been doing numerous concerts throughout the world. But for us, it just didn't seem to be enough. We had a choice; we could continue working in safe familiar territory, or move forward. We were literally at a 'bump' in the road. If we crossed over it, we would be rolling the dice and entering into the unknown. I knew that the only way we could move forward would be to take a giant leap over that 'bump' and record a new album. It had been over 45 years since the Standells had been in a recording studio. It would be a risky time-consuming proposition, but it was something we had to do!

First, we had to have original songs, but we knew that they must be recognizable as having that Standells sound. We all immediately began to write new material, keeping in mind the '60s Standells. Next, we had to find the right recording studio, so we ended up building our own Standells Garage Studio, and I must say that in doing so it spawned our creativity. It took us one year to record this album; the band members poured their hearts and souls into it. "Bump" is the result of our combined efforts. We hope that after listening to the album, you'll be as excited about it as we are!

 

 

WEST COAST REVELATION

Band:JOHN YORK AND KIM FOWLEY
Album:WEST COAST REVELATION
Label:BAT COUNTRY
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage

John York was in the Byrds from 1968-1970 through the Ballad of Easy Rider period. Kim Fowley legendary producer songwriter. Kim wrote songs for the Byrds with Skip Battin after John left the band. It is only natural that two would collaborate on this new cd West Coast Revelation. West Coast Revelation is a very special album, in that is tells the story of the 60s through songs and words.

John York and Kim Fowley flowed with this revelation as it ran through the streets of L.A. in the midsixties; a time of creativity that remains unparalleled. Kim, the wild-eyed prophet, gave momentum to the revelation while John York became its gentle musical craftsman; a skilled artisan. From Alley-Oop to The Byrds, they helped shape and form the times, unseen, sometimes unwashed and unnoticed, they both were there riding its rapids. Because they were there, we can now hear the stories and re-experience the passion of it because, like Kim says on the opening track, "Angels and Trucks,"angels never die."

West Coast Revelation is an opportunity to sit in on a rare front-porch session of songs and storytelling. The songs herein are new, unique and original musings of the times; then and now. They steer us through the stories of their times with words from Kim and music from John. This album captures the essence those 'silver sixties,' but the songs refuse to be bound by time. Songs like "Psychedelic," "Rock and Roll Is Another Name For Freedom," drive us closer to the eye of the diamond of the West Coast Revelation and the wild, cosmic spirit of those times; It's a revelation which can never be captured, but can experienced through prophets and artisans like Kim Fowley and John York.

Here is the first album by JESSICA93, one-man band from the north area of Paris who manages to mix two closed worlds (the 80s and the 90s) with his music, a combination between coldwave and shoegaze. The result is a six tracks record with gloomy and heavy tunes but also dancing beats that can remind THE CURE or RIDE. Geoffroy Laporte builds his songs with many bass and guitars loops on dark beatboxes with a distant voice, sometimes in french and sometimes in english. The record delivers a very intriguing and original music but also reachable songs, that is the main interest of the JESSICA93 music. the CD edition contains 4 bonus tracks from the first JESSICA93 EP.

SENSITIZER

Band:WARSAWWARSAW
Album:SENSITIZER
Label:MUSIC FEAR SATAN
Format:CD
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

After seven years of existence, several European tours (one of them with THE LOCUST), three fewer members, and two 7 inches, the parisian noise hardcore punk duo WARSAWWASRAW unveils its first album "Sensitizer". The band delivers 17 challenging tracks of raw and singular complexity. Beyond short and abrasive songs that destroy everything on their path, some elaborate heavier numbers like "Hell's Angles" or "Hidden Ashes" add width to the experience and serve as the backbone of the record.

Somewhere between CONVERGE, THE LOCUST and FUCKED UP, the parisian duo afirms its identity with this record and establishes itself as a pionner of the French and European forward-thinking chaotic hardcore punk scene.

Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

Nattefrost is Bjørn Jeppesen: All hardware & software synthesizers, vocoders and other various electronic equipment. Danish musician Bjørn Jeppesen is releasing his solo music under the name Nattefrost. It all started in 1995 with a cassette tape including some dark ambient tracks. But Bjørn developed his music and made it more melodic and rhythmic over the years. So far Nattefrost has released 9 albums, 2 EPs and is included on over 15 compilation CDs worldwide. The new Nattefrost album entitled “Futurized”” includes 10 electronic tracks. Some of the uptempo elements from the 2010 album “Dying sun / Scarlet moon” have been continued. There are also still a lot of vintage elements. The title track is almost 10 minutes long and might be the most vintage sounding track with lots of arpeggio sequences and vocoder voices. On the album a few artists are guesting. The danish electro act “Remember Green” is helping on “Electro Shock”. “Dorvo” does some great backing vocals on “Ghost Mind”” and “Michel Moers”, the vocalist from the legendary Belgian band Telex” works with Nattefrost on 3 tracks. ”Futurized”” should appeal to the fan that likes lots of the old school spacey electronic synth stuff but also for the Nattefrost fans that like a mixture of vintage and modern electronica. This album appears on 180 gram vinyl, in gatefold cover, limited to 300 copies...

Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Rock

After over 40 years as a keyboardist, guitarist and Pedal Steeler on stage and in the studio, it was about time to plan the release of his first solo album (with all of the live experience in bands like Grobschnitt, Pee Wee Bluegang, Jutta Weihnhold Band, Joachim Kühn Band, Soul Train, David Johnson Band, Taco's Bizz and many more) . And as exciting and varied sound the titles of this album. The work as a musician, sound engineer and producer in the studio (for artists like Dorthe, Siw Malmkvist, Dunja Rajter, Baccara, Casey Jones, David Garrick, Edina Pop, Chris Howland, Ute Freudenberg, The Byrds and many more) was helpful in this project. On this production, almost everything comes from the pen of Thomas Waßkönig himself, only the choirs and the saxophone came from guest musicians. Wasskönig: " As an accomplished multi-instrumentalist you don't need to tell anyone what you want to have. You play it just yourself." The colorful album is a first cross-section of various styles by the musical career of Thomas Waßkönig and never gets boring.

SUMMONING THE LOST ENERGY

Band:THE BURNING
Album:SUMMONING THE LOST ENERGY
Label:ATMF
Format:2CD
Genre:Black Metal

The Burning was the pre-Lustre project. Some of you may wrongfully consider the same as a rough version of the Swedish acclaimed project but are really missing the target. The Burning is like watching the majesty of the nightsky, a large and even more dreaming version of the darker and more depressive declination that Lustre took later on. The 2cd edition is a comprehensive collection of all material released by the The Burning, nothing missed. Atmospheric Black Metal at the state of art, where a deeply emotional keyboard layer is like shred by the abrasive primeval guitar sound. The edition is a limited to 600 copies Gatefold Digipak version.

 

 

CUORE NERO

Band:KAISERREICH
Album:CUORE NERO
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

When the old names of True Black Metal are falling one by one there’s always new fresh blood to hail the dark side with renewed energy. Kaiserreich aren’t for sure newcomers, band is active since late 10 years and made already some valuable statement of the blackest art. They are fully capable to draw the listener into a storm of sharpen guitars, but “Cuore Nero” is a step ahead in forging an even more varied and mature form of their still raw and aggressive form of primeval Black Metal. No politeness will affect their sound. We’re not simply speaking of low-fi and analogic stuff, but setting a new standard in the Black Metal field, where each aspect of the sound can be perceived still maintaining a darkly entrenching & embracing atmosphere.

 

 

SPECTRAL LORE 3

Band:SPECTRAL LORE
Album:SPECTRAL LORE 3
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

After "Sol," the acclaimed conceptual split album with Mare Cognitum, Greece's SPECTRAL LORE has cemented their with "III", their magnum opus of progressive black metal and cosmic ambient, now reissued after being sold out. In the works since 2008, half of the recordings were kept from being completed because of production and mixing problems. To vent off frustration, the album "Sentinel" had been written and produced in 2012 during an intense period of 3 months, allowing the band's sole member Ayloss to acquire the necessary production skills to successfully complete "III", considered by Ayloss himself as SPECTRAL LORE's best work to date. "Lyrically and conceptually 'III' marks a passage from the internal to the external, from the individual to cosmic destiny," explains Ayloss. "It aspires for humans to discover the importance of their own existence and the potential of their effect, negating the pessimism and existential nihilism that are ever-present in black metal. It aspires for Man to ask the greatest questions and to come up with answers, even as naive or limited as they might seem at the moment. The deepest, most beautiful dream is that which is in tune with the Universe."

MAPPING THE MOMENT

Band:BLOODWAY
Album:MAPPING THE MOMENT
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

"BLOODWAY exist without expectations, and without trying to please anybody but ourselves,” proudly asserts Costin Chioreanu, the band's leader and one of the most acclaimed graphic artists within the metal field. Together with drummer Alex Ghita and bassist Mihai Andrei, he formed the band in 2013 and since then has been busy refining its style: An intriguing, surprising brew of black metal, psych-prog and avantgarde music, filtered through Chioreanu's metaphysic visions and life's deepest emotions. In a certain way, BLOODWAY's music is an extension of Chioreanu's art, and twice as bold: A shape-shifting creature inhabiting a bizarre reality, heavily deformed under the band's surrealistic lens. 2014's “Sunstone Voyager And The Clandestine Horizon” debut EP prepared the ground for BLOODWAY's first full-length, a very mature work appropriately titled “Mapping The Moment With The Logic Of Dreams”. The album features Dr. Mikannibal from Sigh playing saxophone in one track, the mind-shattering prog instrumental “A Hallow Bridge”. The rest is Chioreanu, Ghita and Andrei at their best, injecting heavy doses of angst and craziness into a polymorphic musical matter that is adventurous as it is undeniably original.

 

 

HIRNGEMEER

Band:TODDESTOSS
Album:HIRNGEMEER
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Spiritually not so distant from acts like Burzum, Bethlehem, Urfaust or Circle Of Ouroborus, TODESSTOSS use black metal, dark rock and electronic ambient like colors on big canvas, painting a hallucinating scenario of mental ruins. A theatrical stage where their nightmares and fears materialize to perform a tragedy of insanity and despair. It’s a Theatre of the Absurd, emphasized by anguishing screams, bizarre lyrics, and black metal riffs menacingly suspended in the air like clouds of locusts, attracted by the cold and primitive dark-wave pulse of the rhythm section.

 

 

An Extraconscious Lucidity

Band:MARE COGNITUM
Album:An Extraconscious Lucidity
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

“An Extraconscious Lucidity is a view into a decrepit corner of the cosmos, where universes are conceived as quickly as they are destroyed,” explains MARE COGNITUM's sole member Jacob Buczarski. “In this cosmic womb we find sorrowful galaxies, self-aware and conscious. As this cosmic energy swirls and suffers, it is purified, and The Extraconscious Lucidity of the universe is wrought - an ultra-luminous presence of cosmic mind which connects all matter and surpasses all awareness that has come before it. This hollow actualization, in all its grandeur, can still do nothing to appease its own realization that it is, in itself, nothing. It is a journey into the ultimate void.”

 

 

GRISEUS.

Band:AQUILUS
Album:GRISEUS.
Label:ATMF
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Aquilus will not fail to channel a grandeur of feelings. An evocative portrait between melodic black metal and a movie like soundtrack. Just imagine Ennio Morricone and Angelo Badalamenti meeting Diabolical Masquerade, Emperor and the refinement of early Opeth. Not to mention a touch of Ludovico Einaudi. Aquilus is an Australian act that has been able to put into music the mood of 16th century's Italian reinassance . We’re speaking about something unique, a blaze into this corrupted somnolent world.

 

 

FADING

Band:STELLAR DESCENT
Album:FADING
Label:DUSKTONE
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

Fading is an atmospheric, psychedelic, approximately hour-long black metal journey inspired by a specific event: Witnessing seemingly endless migrating water fowl at a local wildlife refuge that supports the Pacific Flyway. I found myself completely enveloped by something almost unbelievable. Infinite expanses of water fowl plastered against a blazing sky, taking to flight in huge, thunderous flocks that seemed to shake whatever lay below. The sheer numbers and sounds were like nothing I had ever imagined. Toward the evening, the sky turned a vibrant shade of yellow and orange and the coastal range turned to stark silhouette. And at that moment, it all seemed too much. I was just lost in this completely surreal, textured scene. I was faded to reality—absent drugs.

 

 

HANORMALE

Band:HANORMALE

A disturbed journey into your consciousness. It’s smudged, distorted and delayed beyond recognition. Whats left are traces – the ghosts and outlines of songs, trapped in a fog of white noise and overdrive – and the end result is disarmingly serene.. Using loops, cans, bins, bollards, wood, metal, plastic, piano, sax, flute, viola and other home-made instruments, HANORMALE pieced together single 40 minutes track album that is as reflective as it is mesmerizing.

BLACK BIKINI

Band:BLACK BIKINI
Album:BLACK BIKINI
Label:MUSIK ATLACH
Format:CD
Genre:Avant-Garde

Black Bikini is a duo by Pentti Dassum and Jonna Karanka. They met many years ago in Turku and became friends. In the winter 2013 they locked themselves for three days in Pentti’s homestudio to make music. They didn’t know how it would sound. Pentti spread out his impressive junk-instrument collection and Jonna started to harass her electric guitar. In between playing and recording they drank lot of coffee and ate sweets. Afterwards Pentti carefully connected the sounds together with his magic-paw. This is the score to arrange the space debris. Tapes, loops, junkstruments, guitar, bass, electronics, processing & manipulations were recorded to tape in the winter and autumn 2013, then assembled during winter 2013–2014 at Arkisto, Finland.

SURPASSING ALL OTHER KINGS - LP

Band:Ballo delle Castagne
Album:SURPASSING ALL OTHER KINGS - LP
Label:Bloodrock Records
Format:LP
Genre:Prog Rock

The sound of BdC is right at home within this joint project of Bloodrock Records. Their doomy and goth-tinged heavy psych recalls other dark and dramatic artists like Orne, and to an extent Areknames and Antonius Rex. The tracks feature both male and female vocals in a dramatic style, there is a theatrical flair to the presentation that is very RPI to the core even during the passages in English. (There is a mixture of language). Drumming is also varied rather than purely typical beat-keeping, there are march-like drums and slower, lumbering pacing with that Antonius Rex feel. Organ and keyboards are not overwhelmingly complex but they are filled with spooky moods and choking atmospheres like sooty smoke. I notice a penchant for long repetitive patterns of song structure that often borders on oppressive, challenging the listener a bit, and indeed on their page BdC challenge their listeners to turn this WAY up. Chunky guitar chords and distorted tones contribute to the heaviness and fun. "Il Viaggio" is a cool track typical of the album, with a Doris Norton style vocal over dark, shimmering, hallucinogenic sound that can only be described as unsettling.

Unremarkably Mortal Long Con

Band:ON BODIES
Album:Unremarkably Mortal Long Con
Label:DEMONS RUN AMOK
Format:LP
Genre:Punk / Hardcore

ON BODIES plays dark, seething, highly-critical hardcore with a snarl. Formed in 2012 by vocalist Damien Moyal (As Friends Rust, Culture, Morning Again) and bassist Rich Thurston (Culture, Blood Has Been Shed, Terror), ON BODIES executes a distinct brand of hardcore punk that's just plain mean. The music lies squarely at the intersection of modern and 90s hardcore, colored with occasional streaks of metal and melody, and barrels forward at breakneck speed, while Moyal's vocals scold with commanding, rabid precision. And always, at the black, embittered heart of each song, is an uncomfortable and highly-critical sense of urgency and discontent. This 12" combines the band's most recent effort, the 'Unremarkably Mortal EP', and their celebrated 'The Long Con' EP, making for one uncompromising exploration of existential themes, and an unapologetic lambasting of organized religion and zealotry.

The title summarizes whom the album is dedicated to, who is fuelling LASTING TRACES and what it is about!

Some words from the band: “To write a second album was an absolute mammoth task for us. After all we didn’t want to repeat ourselves or just trust on the tried and true. Build up new structures, create new ideas and implement them, stay LASTING TRACES, continue an evolution – all these points played an equally important role when we were writing the new songs.” In cooperation with producer Arkadi Zaslavski, who “supported, cursed and complemented our ideas,” the band was able to records its second longplayer in spring 2014 following its own ideas. The title summarizes whom the album is dedicated to, who is fuelling LASTING TRACES and what it is about!

BEFORE THE KILL

Band:MELIAH RAGE
Album:BEFORE THE KILL
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:Thrash/Crossover Metal

A compilation of the earliest recordings of these US power/thrash veterans. Contains a pre-MELIAH RAGE rehearsal from 1986 with another vocalist and with 4 previously unreleased songs (more classic metal style), 1st demo with Munro from 1987, "Kill to Survive" song and live tracks from 1988. This is as raw and authentic as it gets - 70 minutes of pulsating energy, sheer enthusiasm and old school aggression... a trip down the memory lane for all true Metalheads into METAL CHURCH, RIOT, old METALLICA and demo-era MERCYFUL FATE

 

 

THE END IS WORTH WAITING FOR

Band:DOOMSHINE
Album:THE END IS WORTH WAITING FOR
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

The German epic doom metal masters have taken their time to create a new opus... 5 years after their sophomore album, they finally deliver their 3rd full-length. Was it worth the wait? We have no doubt all those who loved the band so far will be as enthusiastic about the new songs. They weave the spell of doom, dwelling mostly in slow and mid tempos, even though in one song also venturing into faster passages. Beautiful and haunting melodies, musical, clean and smooth vocals with the most pleasant timbre, heavy riffs, excellent musicianship and a good variety of moods and tempos is what they offer on this exceptionally inspired album. This band keeps shining on like pure gold in the doom metal pantheon. A must have for all SOLITUDE AETURNUS, THUNDERSTORM, CANDLEMASS, SORCERER, PROCESSION, ISOLE and FORSAKEN fans!
