Experimentální psychedelický doom metal. Finsko.
Nové album španělské doom metalové kapely. Digipack.
Originally formed in Madrid in 2007 as a new project from members of the seasoned bands Glow, Autumnal and Adrift, the band quickly developed their own identity and gained popularity, leading to their 2009 debut album "The Call of Shiva" being chosen as the best unsigned record by the readers of Terrorizer magazine. Gaining momentum with their next two full-lengths (2011's "Decline... Towers of Silence" and "Avesta" -2017-, as well as the EP "Deadly Lake" in 2014), the band increased their live activity, including an European tour with the blackened crust punks Khmer and support shows for diverse renowned artists like Godflesh, Baroness, Forgotten Tomb or Altar of Plagues, as well as celebrated sets at big festivals like Madrid is the Dark, Resurrection Fest, Doom Over Paris or Bracara Extreme Fest. On this new album the band pursues a more straightforward approach, with heavier shorter songs that still show the band's peculiar...
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...
Nový a zajímavý počin od labelu Prophecy Productions. Středověký doom metal z Velké Británie. Digipack.
ARÐ are of Northumbria. The band’s name is taken from an Old English word meaning "native land” in the dialect of the Anglian Kingdom of Northumbria. The concept behind the debut album „Take Up My Bones“ from this insular doom metal solo project created by composer and musician Mark Deeks revolves around the legendary relics of the famous Northumbrian saint Cuthbert (634–687) and their long journey. ARÐ built their artistic quest for heritage and identity upon a solid doom foundation. The early medieval Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria that inspired ARÐ was far larger than the historic English county Northumberland implies. Before the Germanic warriors arrived, at first as a part of the Roman armies and later as conquerors, the Romans had subjugated the local population of Brittonic Votadini, speakers of a Celtic language. The Roman Empire had left a religious legacy that...

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!"
Velmi pěkný melancholický ambient / folk / doom / black metal. Speciální digipackové vydání. Chile.
Zbrusu nové album americké monumentální doom metalové kapely. Tentokrát jako zdařilá kooperace.
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...
Old school doom death metal z Německa. Lahůdka pro příznivce Paradise Lost, Entombed, Dismember. Digipack.
Voices from a Fathomless Realm" is the first full-length from CAVERNOUS GATE. The German death doom outfit is a solo-project of multi-instrumentalist Sebastian "S.K." Körkemeier. Sebastian has co-founded HELRUNAR under the alias Alsvartr and he also supports Markus "Schwadorf" Stock's black metal project SUN OF THE SLEEPLESS as well as EMPYRIUM live. CAVERNOUS GATE and "Voices from a Fathomless Realm" are quite obviously musical works of love. Sebastian is successfully channelling his penchant for British doom and death acts such as earliest PARADISE LOST and CATHEDRAL as well as Swedish death metal in the vein of early ENTOMBED and DISMEMBER into a dark, depressive, and massive monolith of ultra-heaviness. On "Voices from a Fathomless Realm", Sebastian's granite-grinding and abysmally low growls clearly dominate, but are on rare occasions beautifully contrasted with Jenny...
Projekt lidí ze Shape of Despair. Melancholický finský dark rock / doom metal. Digipack.
Choosing the term "depressive dark rock" to describe themselves doesn't do Counting Hours enough justice as the debut album from this Finnish five-piece not only links their sound to game-changing acts such as Katatonia, Paradise Lost and October Tide but succeeds on evoking the lost feeling of the 90s dark and gothic music scene, mainly because part of what you get to hear on their fresh and intriguing 2018 demo was written during that era, embodying the original atmosphere and vulnerability only a band from those times could materialize. Jarno Salomaa (guitars) comments on the debut full-length: «When we first started with Counting Hours, I basically went to our rehearsal room with Ilpo and had some beers along to record some vocals on the demo stuff I had made. Basically, nothing else besides creating music from the grounds I had made for Rapture back in early 2000. But anyway... Beer, good...
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,...
