Nové album ruské doom / death metalové kapely.
“In Chains of Torment” is a new album of ALONE IN THE MIST (Russia). The music is much more influenced by death metal than before, however the doom metal foundation characteristic of the previous releases with black metal infusions is still in place here. Departure from raw sound contributed to legibility and heaviness of guitar riffs. The lyrics deal with death, grief and suicidal thoughts, while the album itself embodies insanity, cruelty and despair yet remaining melodic and quite diverse. It is full of both wistful apathy and furious aggression shading into hysteria. Fast blast beats interlace with funeral-slow tempos - the epitome of death itself. Album artwork by Armaada Art!
Krásný tajemný atmosférický metal s oriental prvky a podmanivým ženským vokálem. Digipack. Francie / Severní Afrika.
On 'Sofia', French / North African act ARKAN's third album, the band's trademark whirlwind of Arabic percussion and crushing guitar riffing has audibly matured into a much more melancholic and subtle sound. There are still those magical moments of ancient oriental string instruments, but they blend in more organically than before. The dark warmth of Sarah Layssac's vocals has deservedly gained more room, while Florent Jannier's deep growls now rarely make an appearance in favour of more clean singing. ‘Sofia’ is a deeply heartfelt tribute that reveals more secrets of its detailed textures and meaningful melodies with each new spin. There are treasures to be found by those who listen well and with care...
V krásném digipackovém balení znovuvydané debutní album francouzské doom metalové kapely.
1st album of French doom/death originally released in 2005. It has been out of print for a long time, but after a decade from its original release, it's reissued as a digi-CD with bonus track(the cover of diSEMBOWELMENT's The Tree of Life And Death). This bonus track is the first official studio recording with 3 guitars lineup. In short, their music is doom/death. They combines crushing heavy doomed riffs and intense blast beats, in addition there are a lot of catchy emotional melodies. Their agony is slowly transcending the ages and the earth will be doomed again!
V reedici znovuvydané debutní album AUTUMNBLAZE z roku 1999. Vychází jako dvojCD a druhý disk obsahuje spoustu bonusů.
Ten years ago, in the early summer of 1999, Autumnblaze released their lyrical and epic debut album "DämmerElbenTragödie". To celebrate this anniversary, Prophecy Productions will release - in parallel with the new Autumnblaze studio album "Perdition Diaries" - a special edition of "DämmerElbenTragödie" as a double CD containing all official recordings by Autumnblaze preceding the "Bleak" era.
The "DämmerElbenTragödie" bonus CD includes:
- "Dreaming Moonspark Fairylands" (Autumnblaze's 1997 seven-track demo, for the first time available on CD!)
- "Every Silent Moment I Weep" (7" EP from 1998 with two tracks, for the first time available on CD!)
- "My Ebony Wound" (previously unreleased song from the "DämmerElbenTragödie" sessions!)
An extended booklet with a three-pages essay on Autumnblaze's early years and liner notes by Alvar Eldron rounds off this...
Melancholický dark gothic metal v duchu kapel 90-tých let. Německo.
A tribute to the dark metal of the 1990s
With their 2009 reunion album "Perdition Diaries", the classic line-up of Autumnblaze - Eldron, Arisjel, and Schwadorf - has risen like a phoenix from the ashes. This album is a reminiscence to the dark metal of the 1990s, to a time where the conventions of metal were trampled underfoot and the genre's conceptual chains were irrevocably broken from the inside. Eldron puts it more precisely: "Bands such as Paradise Lost, Anathema, Katatonia, My Dying Bride, Dark Tranquillity, or At The Gates are prime examples for an exploration of the human soul, the struggle of the individual against the chasms of life. Away from the metal standards of the 1980s, towards a kind of deeply emotional resistance against the norms. We continue that which was begun in the early nineties!"

When you're stolen from the thief. And led by shadows to belief..."
The debut collaboration album from doom metal giants BELL WITCH and AERIAL RUIN, the solo folk project of singer/songwriter Erik Moggridge, under the moniker of STYGIAN BOUGH is a culmination of the work of both artists as witnessed previously on BELL WITCH’s three full-length albums where Moggrdige has contributed guest vocals. With each succeeding BELL WITCH release, we have seen Moggridge’s involvement with BELL WITCH developing, growing and getting more elaborate. “Stygian Bough: Vol 1”, produced by Randall Dunn, follows up BELL WITCH’s colossal “Mirror Reaper” opus with Moggrdige actually being involved in the creative and writing process with the BELL WITCH duo of Dylan Desmond (bass/vocals) and Jesse Shreibman (drums/synthesizers/vocals). Not only does STYGIAN BOUGH expand and broaden the alliance of BELL...
Nové album kultovní německé dark metalové kapely. Digipack.
Germany’s Bethlehem have shaped extreme music for the last 28 years as one of the forerunners of so-called depressive or suicidal black metal. With their first three albums "Dark Metal" (1994), "Dictius Te Necare" (1996) and "S.U.i.Z.i.D." (1998), they spearheaded a movement with lasting impact on several genres. At each turn, Bethlehem has released albums which perplex and enthrall their ever-growing audience.
After an experimental phase, the group continued on its abrasive path with "Bethlehem" (2016), introducing a new line-up with front woman Onielar (Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult), whose punishing performance have, by now, become another trademark next to founding member Jürgen Bartsch's unfailing inventiveness. "Lebe dich leer" ("empty yourself by living") bears witness to that: Each song differs from the next, telling its own story while weaving together a sonic cloth of sheer terror. Haunting banshee vocals mix...

Praotci psychedelického proto doom metalu, kteří se představili také na Brutal Assaultu 2019. Kultovní kapela 70-tých let a toto je jejich 5-ti CD box v luxusním art book vydání.
On the sunset eve of the sixties, as flower power was wilting and the winds of change blew a cold breeze over Altamont, Coven struck the first chords of major label satanic rock. Instantly infamous for being the first to use the words "Ave Sathanas" on a record, Coven was boycotted. Not only this but their debut album from 1969 kicks off with a song called 'Black Sabbath.' The bass player's name was Oz Osborne, who can be seen on the albums back cover making the first documented sign of the horns. Now the magick of Coven is coming together in a unique box set. Processed with a faux-velvet cover and golden hotfoil embossment as well as limited to just a thousand copies, this release features all manner of Coven treasures. It includes five LPs; there are, of course, the three classic-era Coven albums,...

“Byzantine Horizons” is a pure moment of genius, a musical kaleidoscope of past and future enigmas, brought to your ears by a very compact and fresh sound that never betrays the Epic Dark Metal roots of the band embracing Folk and Dark Wave elements of the 80s.
