"As vast-sounding as their Icelandic compatriots Sólstafir but still journeying through black metal’s last light, Dynfari’s 2012 album Sem Skugginn was powerful enough to move mountains and banish stars. Now the Reykjavik-based duo are returning with the follow up, Vegferð Tímans, an album that maps the heart onto the most majestic of landscapes, and one whose boundless emotional weight enters charged but rarefied realms only the likes of Winterfylleth and Wolves In The Throne Room dare to tread. Vegferð Tímans is an immense and thoroughly immersive experience in its own right, though, a journey through deeply personal landmarks that range from incendiary surges to delicate refrains and all manner of...

Funeral doom metal. Ukrajina.
Nádherný monumentální funeral doom metal inspirovaný tibetským buddhismem. Krásné digipackové balení. Ukrajina / Kanada.
Dýrtangle is a name that comes from an imaginary world, and being a play of words, cannot be correctly interpreted with them. However, dýr means “a beast” in Old Norse language, and tangle with its English roots sends us to “entanglement”. So literally it means “in the rough embrace of the beast”, but this translation does not do justice to the meaning. Some similar notes may be found in the coming of Indian Buddhism to Tibet, transforming the “beasts” or so-called “evil, wrathful deities” into the guardians of the new fused Tibetan Buddhism.
On this album, Ego Depths may be speaking to hungry and evil spirits, negotiating the aspects of life and debating its laws and principles.
Apart from the traditional instruments like guitar, bass and drums, the project involves different styles of vocals including growl, scream, whispers and clean tone, but he also tries...

Split CD dvou australských projektů. Hypnotický rituální neoklasicistní mystický ambient. Digipack.
Ein Skopudhr Galdra unfolds a hypnotic journey of living ritual.
A dream that drifts into shadow, darkness, ecstatic fury.
Coiling and uncoiling in psychic shadow,
avant garde, atmospheric, and extreme influences
pulse through atavisms of mystery and the old god Woden.
Mistsorrow perform epic neo-classical passages
against the hum and grind of melancholic atmosphere.
Steeped in natural beauty, against a reeling resonance,
like the sad song of the horn against the mist…
Echoes of Neptune Towers and Burzum´s Dauði Baldrs
can be heard in the distance.
Mrazivý black metal. Digipack. Německo.
Opět k dostání toto velmi pozoruhodné album z Iránu. Melanchoilický temný black doom metal s prvky ambientu. Velice kvalitní hudba i produkce. CD vyšlo na běloruském labelu Possessions Productions a níže pro zajímavost tisková zpráva labelu.
As always, we have tried to break the next stereotype and release Metal album "Suicidal rebirth" of Iranian (!) project EKOVE EFRITS. The world not and knows about Darkness hiding in the Persian desserts much. And it would be necessary to be more informed … It is forbidden to play Black Metal in Iran. But not so, that "ah-ah-ah it is impossible so to do", for it you'll simply be prisoned. For the Persian to perform Black Metal means to risk his life for real. And it is especially forbidden to play Black Metal live which is so beautiful and filled with propagation of things which are far from islam. Even do not ask how we got the master-CD into our hands… in Iran it is impossible to go banal at post office and send a compact disc, the Internet...
Po úspěšném debutním albu Sudety (2018) přichází projekt ELBE s novým albem Eschatology. Oproti prvnímu albu je zde více posun do doom metalu, nechybí však ani post-rock, psychedelické pasáže a charakteristická melancholie pro tento projekt.
Kdesi uprostřed Jeseníků je místo, kde se v minulosti rozprostírala dnes již zaniklá vesnička Elba. Silná atmosféra linoucí se tímto místem inspirovala kytaristu a skladatele Stanislava Jelínka (Dying Passion) k hudebním hrátkám, jež později vyústily ve vznik projektu Elbe, který dnes spolu se Standou tvoří i Martin Spacosh Peřina (Sousedi, Between the Planets).
Elbe je soundtrackem k tajemným scenériím Jesenicka a k jeho pohnuté historii. Hudebně se zde pracuje s vlivy postrocku, ambientu, shoegaze, psychedelie.

"Sunwar the Dead" is the second part of the five-album cycle started with "Winds Devouring Men" and finished with "A World In Their Screams" (2007). "Sunwar the Dead" sees the core trio recording with a complete classical ensemble and female choir of 50 musicians for the first time, taking the much-admired production of "Winds Devouring Men" to a further level and bringing the sound of the ensemble to a new dimension in terms of liveliness, clarity, complexity, and power.

Krásný zasněný ambient ve stylu Steve Roach / Robert Rich. Belgie.
Zbrusu nové album kultovní německé kapely. Krásné digipackové vydání na labelu Prophecy Productions.
With their sixth full-length, "Über den Sternen", an allegorical German rendering of their band name meaning "Above the Stars", EMPYRIUM still draw from the magic and spirits of wild places, nature's beauty, and human relics of ages long past. "Über den Sternen" echoes this reconciliation of the old with the new on a musical level as well. The Franconian duo is putting more emphasis on the electric guitars and harsh vocals again, which marked their first two albums and stood strong upon the band's melodic black metal foundations. Yet EMPYRIUM also revisit the dark folk style, which the Germans had progressively embraced on their third and fourth albums.
What used to appear to be a crossroad in their musical development has now merged into one breath-taking sound. The combined force of mastermind, multi-instrumentalist, clean and extreme vocalist as well as producer Markus...
Zbrusu nové album italské melancholické post doom rockové kapely. Digipack.
EN DECLIN’s mournful, but progressive, attitude towards everything concerning their music and everyone inside and outside it is synthesized in their definition of music that is Emotional Music, a kind of Art that succeeds to express the melancholy of human being with a defined modern sound. With this new album the Roman band come back with an amazing masterpiece with musical references going from Anathema to Katatonia, until emotional bands such as Klimt 1918 and Nosound.

The 4th album of suffocation and oppresive funereal death metal from these purveyors of wretched doom. Accept no imitation or falsehoods.

We Proclaim Your Death O' Lord is etched deep with a ritualistic zeal, thus, Encoffination has contrived a funerary obelisk of atavistic evocations and vestiges. - Metalbite (8/10)
