Hluboký melancholický drone ambient. Digipack. Polsko.
Genius Loci uses deep drones, acoustic instruments’ sounds and field recordings registered near the author’s place of living (Jaworzno). The project was inspired by the author’s personal fascination with the diversity of nature and the philosophy of Schopenhauer, who considered nature to be one of the most primaeval manifestations of a blind and aimless will, a will which we too are a part of.

Velmi povedený hluboký atmosférický doom death metal. Nová kapela lidí z Pantheist, Aphonic Threnody, Void of Silence. Digipack.
Doom metal supergroup Towards Atlantis Lights give us a sublime album of heart-wrenching drama emanating from historical events. Members of acclaimed bands like Pantheist, Aphonic Threnody and Void of Silence weave together a majestic tale brimming with melancholy and emotional strife. Each song is an elegant expression of their dreamlike visions of a world long past. They carry the burden of grief passed down from centuries with utmost grace and lend to the music an unmistakable nostalgic charm that is very much palpable. Towards Atlantis Lights have created a masterpiece of epic and atmospheric death/doom metal that is tempered with talent, experience and vision.

Pozoruhodný ženský dark ambientní projekt. Francie.
After working with Sven Mann on two LIYR's albums, Alexandra Nordrac started a dark ambient project TREFLE NOIR. Her first album " Villanelle du Diable" leads us into a dark and poetic universe. Inspired by French poetry from the 19th century, the texts lead us through the maze of death, near borders of the afterlife, witchcraft and madness, and all this on a dark and scary music, mixing of soundscapes, drones and percussions.

Litevský rituální folk. Krásné digipackové vydání.
Sutartinės in their pure form! Unique Lithuanian polyphonic ritual songs are performed by the most known sutartinės singers (chanters) group Trys Keturiose. This is very old tradition from pagan past, kept alive in secret for ages, mostly among women. The songs (chants) on conceptual "Kas dar taka" collection are dominated by the Lithuanian verb teka which has several mythologically connected meanings: it means the rising of the sun, the flowing of a river, the flowing of time as well as the process of a woman marrying a man.

Pozoruhodný post death metal. Projekt lidí z Dodecahedron. Digipack. Holandsko.
ULSECT feature guitarist Joris Bonis and drummer Jasper Barendregt from DODECAHEDRON as well as former TEXTURES bass-player Dennis Aarts. It therefore hardly comes as a surprise that elements of their origins have permeated into ULSECT's eponymous debut album. You will find high technical precision and prowess woven into dense dissonance and lucent atmosphere. 'Ulsect' embodies relentless post-death metal aesthetics fraught with shifting patterns and dark tonality. The primeval forces unleashed by pioneers such as GORGUTS and DEATHSPELL OMEGA are violently harnessed to serve a sinister musical purpose. Nightmares transformed into sonic matter
