Nové album ruské symfonické black metalové kapely.
“There was ominous silence all around. I had a premonition of an impending catastrophe. And so it began... The black Sun was rising above the horizon in its majesty. Standing on the edge of a cliff, I saw its shadow mercilessly covering this world. Hopelessness... Despair... Yet there was something mystical and unbearably familiar in this twilight. As if an ancestral spirit was howling like a wolf in my blood awakening some ancient long-forgotten instincts. The legend has become a reality... But what are we in for?" Welcome ‘Solar Despair’ - the ninth album by ASTARIUM. With significantly slower tempos, thicker and heavier sound the project presents its new yet distinctive style. It is still the same symphonic black metal we love. However this time there is an abundance of depressive inserts combined with ambient elements. A must-have for the fans of atmospheric music!

Velmi pěkný litevský folk rock. Krásné digipackové balení.
The famous Lithuanian folk-rock band ATALYJA presents its third album: its solar theme is revealed not only through lyrics but also via fresh and sunny sound. The album uniquely combines solid rock composition, world improvisation and experiments, while the multicoloured instrumentation is adorned by traditional Lithuanian kanklės, bagpipe, violins, along with Indian bansuri and tabla. The sound is solid, delicate and inflaming. The twelve tracks include charming Samogitian songs, Latvian mythological saga, interpretations of sutartinės (glees), few surprising compositions and a dramatic culmination "Eglė's Curse" (motif from the epic Lithuanian fairy tale). The album is dedicated to the Millenium of Lithuania.Presented in a white 4 panel digipack.

Mrazivý atmosférický black metal z Islandu.
Hailing from Iceland, AUÐN are the latest offspring from the burgeoning black metal scene in this land of ice and snow to set their dark sails for foreign shores. On their second full-length album 'Farvegir Fyrndar', AUÐN deliver haunting melodies and beautifully frozen atmospheres – as opposed to the jarring and caustic blunt force trauma that has recently brought the island to the black metal forefront. With 'Farvegir Fyrndar', AUÐN not only demonstrate the impressive progress of their songwriting skills but also deliver a clear definition of their very own black sound.
Druhé album islandské atmosférické black metalové kapely. Digipack.
As the country's vibrant black metal scene has proven, Iceland can be a beautiful and sinister place where furious elements rage teaching fear but also inspiring human creativity. Emphasizing melodies rather than dissonance and approaching their music from a dramatic, classical black metal angle, AUÐN deliver another mesmerizing piece of art with ‘Vökudraumsins fangi’.
This album explore new soundscapes and push their music to new heights, thereby setting themselves further apart from their Icelandic contemporaries. The six piece draws inspirations from their natural surroundings, but also chart the territory of the mind. The album title literally translates to ‘prisoner of the daydream’, but rather refers to a perpetual state of delusion of a life that never took place.
Join AUÐN while traversing the blurred lines between reality and the supernatural and the otherworldly sceneries of their native...
Zbrusu nové album australské black metalové kapely. Digipack.
AUSTERE are back. The Australians return with their third album – and they are as laconic and without any pretensions as when they went into extended hibernation after the release of their sophomore full-length "To Lay like Old Ashes" in 2009. Entitled "Corrosion of Hearts", the new tracks stay true to the path that AUSTERE have carved for themselves out of solid black metal bedrock. The multi-layered and harsh yet often dreamlike guitar tapestries woven by Mitchell Keepin are complemented by the emotive drumming of Tim Yatras, who also contributes keyboard splashes and cinematic soundscapes. In the typical manner of these Australians, their songs are still meandering, flowing streams of musical thought of epic proportions. On "Corrosion of Hearts", AUSTERE's brand of black metal has evolved into a more mature and defined form of expression, which is hardly surprising as both musicians were active in other bands during...
Sebrané vydání kultovní australské depressive black metalové kapely nyní vychází na německém labelu Prophecy Productions. Nádherné vydání jako art book!
Before AUSTERE release their long-awaited third full-length, the veteran depressive black metal duo from Wollongong in Australia's east coast state New South Wales will offer their complete catalogue of cult recordings as an essential anthology.

(with ISOLATION, 2008) as well as the Australian's sophomore album "To Lay like Old Ashes" (2009). Previously unreleased material is added on a bonus CD that contains the two re-imagined tracks...

A portrait of the soul in monochrome
The second album by Autumnblaze marks a radical cut with the project's Folk-Metal past. Featuring Schwadorf (Empyrium) as drummer, bassist, and producer, Autumnblaze create a masterwork of emotional Trip Rock somewhere between Portishead and Katatonia - the best album of their career.
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 náladotvůrný trip rock, post gothic metal. Německo.
How meaningfully and aptly this cryptic announcement was chosen. Whereas Autumnblaze's debut, "DämmerElbenTragödie", was characterised by its mystical, metallic eruptions, in this album it is the many diverse expressions that mark a new passionate artwork of sound. Trip-hop beats, rock outbursts, melancholic pop-melodies; comforting warmth, bleak hopelessness, and dream-like, sumptuous clouds of atmosphere: all these are the criteria that label "Mute Boy Sad Girl" as an album that needs to be experienced - an album that wants to touch you deeply and clearly succeeds in doing so.
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!"
Akustické provedení některých skladeb od Autumnblaze. Digipack.
In celebration of their unplugged tour with Antimatter in autumn 2003, Autumnblaze re-recorded songs from the albums "Bleak" and "Mute Boy Sad Girl" for the acoustic album "The Mute Sessions". While the band combined trippy beats with rocking eruptions on their previous releases, the group around Markus B. show their proximity to classic singer/songwriters on "The Mute Sessions" to enchant their listeners in a much more intimate way.

Compositional depth and emotional lightness
Even though their distinctive melancholy is still an essential feature of Autumnblaze, their fourth album surprises with an unexpected musical open-mindedness and energy. “Words Are Not What They Seem” gives you a lot more room to breathe than its predecessors and presents an astonishing and maybe unique melange of compositional depth and the lightness you feel.
With “Words Are Not What They Seem,” Autumnblaze continue to follow their very own way, never bending to other’s expectations or the standards of genres, but instead always driven by an inner need to sincerely express their own emotions.
Apart from their self-written tracks, there is a cover version of the Twin Peaks theme “Falling” featured on the album.
