Zbrusu nové album britské avantgardní black metalové kapely.
The year is 1898. The Gentlemen's Club of A Forest Of Stars invites you to a midnight performance of their latest maniacal masterpiece, "Grave Mounds And Grave Mistakes". This exclusive brotherhood embraces the decadent, conflicting nature of their Victorian England, weaving sickly gin-tinged thoughts with bizarre, hypnotic melodies to fully express the decadence of their era.
120 years later, in the year 2018, A Forest Of Stars would be nothing less than one of the UK's leading Avantgarde black metal outfits. On "Grave Mounds And Grave Mistakes", the septet takes William Blake's proverb of Hell "Exuberance is beauty" as its principle, and celebrates lushness and excess in their music, lyrics and artwork. As an exploration of a struggle against insanity, it also represents the band's desire to revisit earlier works. A more atmospheric album than its predecessor, 2015's "Beware The Sword You Cannot See", this album has...

In 2002 Arcturus managed to astonish and surprise again with "The Sham Mirrors". Abiding by the motto 'expect the unexpected', they created an opus that shows their musical and song-writing comprehension and ability once more, while at the same time it is accessible to an unexpected degree. It combines characteristics of the first two albums with a lot of new elements: again the band's creativity and joy of experimentation seem to be immense; again they are ahead of their time."The Sham Mirrors" is clearly rooted in the band's past and shows Arcturus' elemental way into the future.

After 20 years in the metal scene, ATROX mark the occasion with their 5th album “Binocular”. Their new delight takes you through the twilight zone between Progressive Rock and Avantgarde Metal. Norwegian ATROX released their debut “Mesmerized” (Head Not Found) in 1997. Their two follow-ups “Contentum” (2000) and “Terrestrials” (2002) came out on Season of Mist. The music presented on these releases was more melodic and an experimental / avant-garde metal. The fourth album “Orgasm” (2003, Code666) marks the end of an era as it’s the last album with extravagant female vocalist Monika Edvardsen. “Binocular” shows an important change in the vocal department and an extensive use of electronics and computers. Atmospheric and energetic, groove based arrangements and catchy melodies wrapped up in a metallic symbiosis.

Info: an Orgiastic mixture of Prog, Gothic, Jazz and Creative Metal! Atrox can appeal any music fan looking for something unique, far from the recent trends of Xeroxed-metal bands. Although Norwegian and playing Metal combined with female vocals, Atrox can't and won't be compared to their country mates of Theatre of Tragedy, Tristania, etc. First of all, Atrox' music is far more progressive, creative and heavy! besides that, unlike the out-of-tune heavenly vocals, Monika can sing. She plays with her voice, a Kate Bush delirium combined with Indian, Arabic and Asian influences! Atrox will move the standard Gothic Metal clichés into a Theatrical Extravaganza!

Feat. Susperia, ex-Dimmu Borgir and ex-Old Man's Child members. The culmination of the last years’ intense writing and studio-work has resulted in “Instigator”, BLACK COMEDY’s highly anticipated debut album that hit the shelves early 2008. Massively tight guitar riffing, powerful drums, synthetic leads and pads, ear-shattering and epic vocals all come together on this 12 track tour de force where BLACK COMEDY finally bring its modern, futuristic metal to the masses. The album was recorded at Strand Studio during 2007 with production and mastering being handled by Marius Strand with Bjørn M. Borg as co producer.

Botanist is a highly creative Experimental Avant-garde Black Metal band, or, in their perspective, Green Metal. At times eerie and ghostly, almost mystical, the sound is harsh, but it's still gorgeous and almost delicate, haunting, atmospheric and soothing. This new edition of the now sold out "Hammer of Botany" EP feature a 12min long brand new unreleased bonus track titled "Oplopanax Horridus".

CANTATA SANGUI smash like a steam-rolling juggernaut through massive walls of sound. The Finns are exclusively fuelled by the mighty clanging and pounding heaviness of bass-strings. By contrast the lusciously deep velvet voice of singer Anna Pienimäki snakes seductively through the monolithic musical structures created by those thick steel-chords. As the foundations of CANTATA SANGUI were laid down by two bass-players, the continued absence of guitars evolved without a second thought and was never considered to be a lack: "We don't need to down-tune as our sound is heavy by nature!", states Anna confidently. With the accuracy of practising research scientists, CANTATA SANGUI dissect, examine and re-assemble the genetic codes of Doom, Gothic and even Black Metal to shape the avant-garde monster of "On Rituals and Correspondence in Constructed Realities". Parallel to their musical...

Deluxe Digipak with bronze foil print and 16-page booklet. CYNIC finally return with their long awaited second full length since their 2007 reunion. ‘Kindly Bent to Free Us’ is at the same time a natural continuation of best-selling album ‘Traced in Air’ (2008) as well as a collection of new ideas incorporating new elements distilled from their musical experiments conducted on the two EPs ‘Re-Traced’ (2010) and ‘Carbon-Based Anatomy’ (2011). The alchemy of frontman Paul Masvidal and rhythmaniacs Sean Reinert and Sean Malone should equally appeal to CYNIC enthusiasts as well as connoisseurs of PORCUPINE TREE, OPETH, THE PINEAPPLE THIEF, KATATONIA, and ULVER. Now these leaders of their genre offer you ‘Kindly Bent to Free Us’. Listen well!
