There are certain cycles in the rise and fall of bands that form a discernible pattern. One of the stations in this process is the break-though, when a group rises from the murky underground into the sphere of heightened mainstream attention. It may seem a rather daring to attribute such a moment to INQUISITION's forthcoming seventh full-length 'Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith' in advance. Yet even with the first spin of this record, any doubt and thought of hyperbole should disappear. The American black metal duo has obviously reached a level of confidence, maturity, and mastery of song writing, technical execution as well as strength of production that this masterpiece will mark a milestone in a career that has already gathered momentum.

Cult black metal duo INQUISITION explodes from the underground with their newest full-length 'Obscure Verses For The Multiverse'. The album's ten paeans to the occult are at once hostile, hypnotic, and bombastic. Chainsaw riffs carve violently to the forefront, while ominous vocals croak odes to the infinite and satanic alike. As tracks such as "Infinite Interstellar Genocide", "Darkness Flows Towards Unseen Horizons", the title track, and more prove, 'Obscure Verses...' is INQUISITION's finest hour yet and trumpets their arrival as the new kings of darkness. Comes with the bonus track "Where Darkness is Lord and Death the Beginning!" Side A : 01. Force of The Floating Tomb - 02. Darkness Flows Towards Unseen Horizons - 03. Obscure Verses for The Multiverse. Side B : 04. Spiritual Plasma Evocation - 05. Master of The Cosmological Black Cauldron - 06. Joined by Dark Matter Repelled by Dark Energy. Side C : 07. Arrival of Eons After - 08. Inversion of Ethereal White Stars. Side D : 09....
Cult black metal act INQUISITION exploded from the underground with 2013’s full-length 'Obscure Verses For The Multiverse'. Prior to the release of this critically-acclaimed masterpiece, the American duo had unleashed five other albums that all contributed in establishing INQUISITION as a rising black star on the extreme metal scene. Originally published in 2011 and long out of print, ‘Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm’ foreshadowed INQUISITION’s arrival as the new kings of darkness. Now adorned with brand new cover art designed Paolo Girardi and closing the circle of the band’s full back catalogue reissues, the album's ten paeans to the occult are at once hostile, hypnotic, and bombastic.

Nádherné vinylové dvojLP nového alba islandské kapely KATLA. Černý vinyl. Gatefold dvojLP.
Katla is an Icelandic band featuring ex-Sólstafir drummer and visual artist Gu∂mundur Óli Pálmason and singer/multi-instrumentalist Einar Thorberg Gu∂mundsson (Fortí∂, Potentiam). Named in tribute to one of Iceland's greatest active volcanos, Katla creates powerful, panoramic music where shimmering guitars, crushing melodies and atmospheric density meet dark, entrancing power.
Katla's debut album, "Mó∂urástin", shines a spotlight on the band's hook-heavy, horizon-stretching sound. The lyrics tell tales of living in a country of contrasts; a land where fire and ice co-exist and dark winters are offset by the summer's midnight sun. Iceland: a country where insular existence has spurred a rich and vibrant culture.
"Mó∂urástin", Icelandic for (a) Mother's Love, might seem like a strange title for a metal album, but Katla dares to be different. What on Earth is stronger than a...
Třetí album francouzské melanchoilické kapely na LP.
Lyon, France dark dreamweavers Les Discrets return with "Prédateurs", their first full-length album in five years. Ever-evolving, the sound of Les Discrets in 2017 takes a stylistic shift which sees the band's dreamy shoegaze and metallic tinged post-rock turn into dark indie rock with electronic chill while incorporating inspiration from trip-hop and 70's film soundtracks.
Described as 'the soundtrack of a slow film noir happening in a train where the journey leads the auditor to several places seen from the windows', "Prédateurs" is a cinematographic, urban album made of steel, concrete, snow and electricity. Easy on the ears, "Prédateurs" accessibility is shaped by interpreting the familiar music and melodies of Les Discrets with new instruments, approach and ambition. Although its shape has changed, the feeling of the music, its atmosphere and its essential core has remained the same. On the new album and its concepts,...

NECROWRETCH hammer out album number three in an all-out attack on everything that is glossy and polished in modern metal. 'Satanic Slavery' is dirty, gritty, mean, and beautifully untamed. This record spells DEATH METAL in capital letters without embracing mindless nostalgia. NECROWRETCH are letting their roots clearly shine through. Early death metal with clearly audible thrash elements play a large role on 'Satanic Slavery'. Echoes of POSSESSED or DARK ANGEL are equally present as fiercely rasping black metal vocals, and the melodic attitude of Swedish influences with a dash of DISSECTION.
Sprawl of Sin / Tredeciman Blackfire / Satanic Slavery / Evil Names

NIGHTBRINGER are pushing forward in their fast-track evolution with grim determination. Their forthcoming fifth full-length 'Terra Damnata' takes at least as big a step into new musical dimensions as its predecessor 'Ego Dominus Tuus' (2014) – yet without straying from the band's original black course. While 'Ego Dominus Tuus' amalgamated traces of quintessential elements taken as inspiration from EMPEROR, DARK FUNERAL, and DIMMU BORGIR among other black classics into a dark American alloy, 'Terra Damnata' seems to systematically sever such ties to the previous orthodoxy found on 'Hierophany of the Open Grave' (2011). NIGHTBRINGER have sharpened their claws and unafraid of dissonance dare to take their songwriting where it hurts.
Side A : As Wolves Amongst Ruins / Misrule
Side B : Midnight's Crown / Of The Key And Crossed Bones
Side C : Let Silence Be His Sacred Name / Inheritor Of A Dying World
Side D : The Lamp Of Inverse Light / Serpent Sun

Misericordia [Turin Session] was recorded in Italy on Sept 2015 and is a collaboration between shamanistic Bon spiritualists Phurpa from Russia and experimental drone and field recordings Italian act Mare Di Dirac, fronted by Lorenzo Abattoir.
The overall album drowns you in a meditative tantric soundscape consisting of Alexey Tegin’s deep gutteral vocal vibrations (rgyud-skad) or ‘tantric voice‘ and Lorenzo Abattoir’s dark ambient field recordings and sound effects. Organic sounds are produced by bells, gongs, chimes and traditional hand-made instruments created from human bone and animal remains, resonating a background ambience of calm and prayer.
This very intimate and powerful recording showcases the soul wrenching effects that take hold and the artists ability to shake the foundations of the human subconscious through ritualistic and meditative performance.
