Nové album prvotřídní post black metalové kapely. Digipack. Holandsko.
Krásný spirituální post black metal / folk z Rumunska.
In 2009, an uproar resounded through the Black Metal scene when Hupogrammos and Sol Faur left Negura Bunget. These visionary song-writers had given the group its unique style, and now they were left without a band. Yet, the two musicians looked ahead and, a short while later, founded a new group in order to realise their musical visions on a grand scale: Dordeduh.
Dordeduh's debut single, "Valea Omului" (2010), made clear that Hupogrammos and Sol Faur would keep on following the path of their former band. With their ambition to unify the layers of the soul with transcendence, they create spiritual Black Metal that encompasses Ambient passages and primal fury as well as elements of Romanian folklore and progressive Rock. On "Dar De Duh" (English: "Gift of/from the Spirit"), their first full-length album, Dordeduh continue on their chosen path to present, after three years of work, a record that defies the usual standards of...
Zbrusu nové a dlouho očekávané album mocných DORDEDUH! Digipack.
With their sophomore full-length, "Har", Romania's DORDEDUH have created a rare and unique metal record that defies easy categorisation, pushes boundaries, and offers something new and previously unheard. Guitarists and founders Edmond "Hupogrammos" Karban and Sol Faur aka Cristian Popescu were expected to deliver an album oscillating in the musical space between dark folk and black metal. And, while they did indeed draw from those sources, they also fearlessly incorporated electronic, gothic, rock, psychedelic, prog, and even pop elements without prejudice. It is not the first time that Hupogrammos and Sol Faur have been involved in creating an iconic album. Both had leading roles in composing of NEGURĂ BUNGET's masterpiece "Om", which essentially put Romania onto the map of heavy music. After splitting, the duo from the city of Timișoara founded DORDEDUH and delighted critics and fans alike with the EP "Valea...
Další pozoruhodné album od této kapely. Tentokrát akustický black metal.
Their eccentric acoustic album
"In Luft geritzt" is Dornenreich's sixth studio recording and shows Jochen 'Eviga' Stock and Thomas 'Inve' Riesner, who are the creative heads of Dornenreich since 2006, from a totally new perspective: the pieces are acoustically arranged, yet they strongly defy the stereotypes of an 'unplugged' album. The title - 'Carved in Air' - is open to interpretation and hints at the Austrians' aim to merge music, words and image into something that is searching and demanding at the same time, something that sounds as powerful as it sounds unforced.
Spolupráce labelu Epidemie Records s maďarskou scénou má dlouhou tradici, která sahá do roku 2009 kdy jsme objevili Thy Catafalque a vydali jejich fenomenální album Róka Hasa Rádió. V pozdějších letech jsme vydali v reedici předchozí album Thy Catafalque Tünö Idö Tárlat a neofolkové projekty Larrnakh , Woodland Choir a martial industriální Kriegsfall-U. Nyní s velikou radostí představujeme náš další pozoruhodný objev tamní scény.

Čtvrté řadové album islandské black metalové kapely. Krásné digipackové vydání na labelu Code666.
Fourth, Incredible album from Icelandic Black Metal band Dynfari! Alternating between post-rock vibes and black metal atmospheres, the album explores fantasy writer Patrick Rothfuss' theory on the mind's abilities to cope with pain, by weaving it together with over 100 year old lamentations on human existence by early 20th century Icelandic existentialist poet Jóhann Sigurjónsson. The combination of the two writers' thoughts is embodied in the union of the drive of black metal with more traditional soundscapes of acoustic guitar, accordion, flute and bouzouki. Artwork by Metaztasis (Watain, Behemoth).
Třetí album islandské black metalové kapely.
Stellar atmospheric Black Metal from iceland, influenced by bands such as Austere, Woods of Desolation, Alcest, Drudkh, Burzum, Nyktalgia.
"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 cathartic currents in between." Jonathan Selzer - Metal Hammer
Post black metal, death metal, ambient. Belgie.
Belgian extreme act EMPTINESS’ fifth album 'Not For Music' mixes early black and death metal influences with ambient soundscapes that are imbued with a sinister foreboding of something evil lurking underneath those often elegant textures and surfaces. Strings and electronics blend seamlessly into an overarching sound of rising darkness that embeds eerily rasping vocals that scratch along frayed nerve ends like the dry snakeskin whispering of claws gliding over ancient vellum filled with arcane symbols and forbidden knowledge. Yet far from dwelling in the distant past, this horror has firmly settled within the concrete, glass and steel vistas of a modern metropolis in our time.
Nové album belgické post black metalové kapely.
EMPTINESS' new opus 'Vide' was meant as a claustrophobic album, a journey of an infinite mind stuck into a world too small. Questioning the essence of once perceptions, this album invites you to rethink your grasp of reality. To that end, it was important for EMPTINESS to be isolated during its "experimentations". Recordings would take place sometimes in confined spaces like apartments or a cabin in the woods, and sometimes on a city roof allowing to contemplate a strange human world from above. Involvement was strictly limited to the band members who took care of all audio production and visuals work. The pandemic and lockdown happened while recording was in progress; a materialization of the imaginary world being created. The album either by coincidence or not, is in tune with our dissonant times.
CD in white jewel case with slipcase and 16-page booklet.

Black 12" vinyl in jacket with 4-page insert. First pressing to 300 copies worldwide.

Nové, šesté řadové album britské post black metalové kapely. Digipack.
On "The Dead Light," Fen explore the beauty that comes from destruction. Representing the vanguard of contemporary UK post black metal, the band offers its heaviest, most direct album to date. It is the sixth full-length in a career of less than 15 years and marks another recalibration for the three-piece that, while always daring to use unconventional structures, found that the predecessor "Winter" (2017) was the apex in this respect. "This time, we took on the creative challenge to say more in less time," says co-founder The Watcher.
That does neither mean Fen lost their trademark sweeping melodies and atmosphere, nor does it suggest less progressive structures. If anything, the material shows the group at its most British. "I'm kind of old school, I love heavy metal," the guitarist and singer explains regarding his more riff-oriented, straightforward approach that goes along with some more "outlandish"...

Melancholický náladorvůrný black metal. Digipack. Španělsko.
On this fifth album, Catalonia's FOSCOR carve a multi-facetted jewel out of deep longing, their country's characteristic melancholy, and dark foreboding heaviness. This album invites the listener onto a cinematic journey through dream landscapes created by carefully arranged sonic delights and unexpected aural twists. 'Les Irreals Visions' is easily drawing its eager audience in, only to lure the unwary listener into a dark labyrinth of unexpected complexity filled with beauty and sorrow, which they might find much harder to leave than anticipated. Enjoy charting your course through the glittering facets of this musical gem.

Something rises in the bleak and blackened skies of society as we know it. Vortex community GAEREA are about to bestow their Undying Sigil to the masses, with their brand-new full length album, ‘Limbo’! Are you ready for the tale of the Fallen Society and the journey to the vast Void, the only good in Life? Let us begin then. In the first hopeless circle, on too great and Undeniable Nothingness.
Zbrusu nové album španělské post black metalové kapely. Digipack.
Behind black shrouds of obscurity and desolation, the men of GAEREA deliver their odes in cascading maelstroms of aggression and beauty with full-length number three, ‘Mirage.’ Emerging from the age of pandemic to whatever awaits humanity next, the Portuguese horde remains on the frontlines of the next generation of extreme metal. The beauty of GAEREA lies in the directness and simplicity found within their florid tapestry of extremity and aggression. With talons dipped in the inky blood of black metal and scraped across the flesh of human suffering, GAEREA is leading a charge into the future of darkness, and all those who find beauty and power in the dark side of existence would do well to take heed.
