Ambient/Black Metal/Folk Mixture
Ambient/Black Metal/Folk Mixture
With this new album they move away (lyrically as well as conceptually) from the often fantastic and historical context of previous creations from the band. They now aim to prove that pure emotions felt in the hearts of everyday human beings can be as pure, triumphant, heroic and dramatic as those told of in ancient tales

Luna Mortis prides itself on blurring the lines to arrive at something beautiful and aggressive. Their progressive and dark sound will appeal to a wide audience of metal heads. Captive melodies, technical precision and engaging hooks. The vocals come with an unliimited range and dynamic scope. Imagine Dream Theatre, Opeth and At The Gates creating music with out boundaries.
Debut full-length album by Italian Dark/Gothic Metal band.
Excellent Dark Gothic Rock/Metal solo project of Martyr Lucifer, singer of Hortus Animae and Space Mirrors.

Imagine Katatonia and Tiamat mixing with Sisters of Mercy, The Cure and Joy Division!!
Features the mighty Panopticon’s on the subject of mortality Part One (in three tracks) as well as three new recordings from When Bitter Spring Sleeps. Panopticon presents an organic, stripped down, and uncompromising exploration of the theme of Death and the purpose of existence. Fueled by ferocious, driving drumming and percussion, raging and furious vocals, and the technical guitar shredding of A. Lundr. When Bitter Spring Sleeps offers their unique Black Metal nature worship in the form of vicious live ritual recordeds in a nature preserve and WBSS’ first studio recordings blended with ambience captured at the same nature preserve but brimming with depth and thick instrumentation
SHOW OF BEDLAM is cryptic, psychotic, dark, supremely heavy and absolutely mesmerizing and epic in his own way… The female-fronted wall of sound from Montréal is transcending the magnitude of the ever progressive NEUROSIS and the psychotic, off the wall craziness of BATTLE OF MICE. Rich with layered ambiances, “Transfiguration” displays a staggering exhibition of despair and immersive power, morphing the band into a Dark Spectacle fueled by an inhuman degree of atmospheric density.
Dark/Black/Melodic with some Clean Vocals
Melodic thrash/death metal with a dark side from Norway
Symphony In Acrimony. This is the brain child of Jordan Varela (Domintation Through Impurity, Ex-Lust of Decay, Ex-Lividity). This is a massive slab of emotions coming in at 33 minutes for 1 epic song. A twisted trainwreck of beauty, brutality, speed and meditation all at once. Jordan has stepped it up and has done every single instrument/vocal duty on this release. A must for fans of Lykathea Aflame, Edge of Sanity, Kvist, Garden of Shaows, Third Moon, Enthral Etc. Comes in a slipcase over the jewel case!!!

Swedish THOSE WHO BRING THE TORTURE is back with the fifth full album! Just like their predecessor 2014’s “Piling Up” the new one brings 10 songs of intense, heavy and crushing death metal in the vein of HYPOCRISY, MALEVOLENT CREATION, GRAVE. And again Rogga Johansson (PAGANIZER, RIBSPREADER, PUTREVORE, REVOLTING, DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN, MEGASCAVENGER, BONE GNAWER) and co. have done great job! Mixed and mastered by B. Helgetun at Studio Brainjar (JOHANSSON & SPECKMANN, PUTREVORE, DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN). Artwork by Ironworks Gravefix (BONE GNAWER, PAGANIZER).
Cosmic, nature-inspired, trance-inducing, many-layered black metal compositions of the highest caliber from two very respected acts. Descend once more into the empyrean, yet earthly. machinations of the universe! Panopticon and Wheels Within Wheels combine forces a second time – as nature intended – to present always deep philosophical whisperings and oftimes fear-inspiring intensity. Incredibly dynamic Panopticon blends black metal with gorgeous post-rock and ambient music, Wheels Within Wheels pulses forth with another dreamy, astral escape from the dark conspiracies surrounding our fragile corporeal forms.
