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.

1st album of French doom/death originally released in 2005.

After 20 years in the metal scene, ATROX mark the occasion with their 5th album “Binocular”. Their new delight takes you through the twilight zone between Progressive Rock and Avantgarde Metal. Norwegian ATROX released their debut “Mesmerized” (Head Not Found) in 1997. Their two follow-ups “Contentum” (2000) and “Terrestrials” (2002) came out on Season of Mist. The music presented on these releases was more melodic and an experimental / avant-garde metal. The fourth album “Orgasm” (2003, Code666) marks the end of an era as it’s the last album with extravagant female vocalist Monika Edvardsen. “Binocular” shows an important change in the vocal department and an extensive use of electronics and computers. Atmospheric and energetic, groove based arrangements and catchy melodies wrapped up in a metallic symbiosis.
Prvotřídní norský avantgardní metal. Digipack.
Info: an Orgiastic mixture of Prog, Gothic, Jazz and Creative Metal! Atrox can appeal any music fan looking for something unique, far from the recent trends of Xeroxed-metal bands. Although Norwegian and playing Metal combined with female vocals, Atrox can't and won't be compared to their country mates of Theatre of Tragedy, Tristania, etc. First of all, Atrox' music is far more progressive, creative and heavy! besides that, unlike the out-of-tune heavenly vocals, Monika can sing. She plays with her voice, a Kate Bush delirium combined with Indian, Arabic and Asian influences! Atrox will move the standard Gothic Metal clichés into a Theatrical Extravaganza!

Mrazivý atmosférický black metal z Islandu. Digipack.
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.

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.

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!"

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.
Instrumentální atmosférický black metal ze Sýrie.
After 3 years of waiting, Syrian atmospheric black metal band Autumnwind is back again with the third album "Endless Fear" as an instrumental release to simulate the story of the terrifying panic attacks that stroke the mind of its founder Abdulrahman Abu Lail in summer 2017. From the depths of horror and panic, "Endless Fear" was born to tell a story of pain and barbarian thoughts written on musical instruments pages, a story of a 5 songs album speaking throughout the mind of a victim who suffered the worst fear that a man can imagine, the fear of himself and his thoughts. For fans of Lustre, Summoning, Agalloch, Elderwind and Shining. Mastered by Digivision Records (Belarus). Artwork by Paint-It-Black Design.

Black metal. Finsko.
What you hear is what you get. BAPTISM deliver another album that is firmly rooted in Finnish black metal orthodoxy. Again their raw and unbound musical fierceness is counterbalanced by epic melodies buried underneath a shredding onslaught and majestic atmospheres. Yet despite staying true to course there is neither a feeling of stagnation nor of senseless nostalgia. BAPTISM excel in keeping true to their course, while appearing fresh and raising the stakes with their fifth full-length.
