NoiseArt Records is a label that is growing enormously. Not that evident, for the Music scene is going through a crisis. In this label’s case it has not to do with signing big-selling commercialised acts, yet with signing qualitative bands. Oke, I do not need to exaggerate, because nobody is to like every single release through NoiseArt; I do not either. But most of the albums (and so it leads to the bands as well, of course) are of a more than average quality.
Not that long after the mini Backroom Eugenics (review in the archives section), which I could appreciate a lot, Swedish combo Zombified return with their second full length (the first one was called Zombified Slaughtermachine).
Actually this material was compiled and released a while ago, and more than this: this material was written more than thirty years ago (and initially recorded in 1985).
Black Burn is a (Cult) act from Berlin, Germany, that was formed during the very early eighties by Jörg Franke, who was active in legendary bands like Skylla or Calderone (amongst others).
Scottish combo Cnoc An Tursa were able to record The Giant Of Auld at the legendary Foel Studio with highly acclaimed producer Chris Fielding at the helm (think: Ageless Oblivion, Moss, Winterfylleth, Primordial, The Wounded Kings etc.). Result: a killer production, of course!
Endezzma were originally formed by Morten Shax in 1992 as Dim Nagel (also in Bloodsworn). After a long-time hiatus, he decided to reform the band almost seven years ago, with Tomas ‘Trondr Nefas’ Torgersbraten in the ranks.
Monolithe are one of France’s finest Obscure Doom acts. This band with e.g. Anthemon member Sylvain Bégot, who started this act more than ten years ago, released two full lengths before (in 2003 and 2005; followed by two downloadable minis, respectively in 2007 and early 2012, the so-called Interlude-diptych).
As appetizer: check out the reviews (professionally and grimly) done for this splendid website in our archives section for Aeon’s former releases.
Dawn Of Winter were formed in 1990 (!) as Cemetery, paying tribute to bands as Candlemass, Trouble, Saint Vitus, Witchfinder General, Black Sabbath etc. After a short period, the members did choose to change the band’s moniker into the current one, and at the same time they decided to change their style into the initial approach (tributing the gothfathers of Doom), mixed with specific own-faced structures. Dawn Of Winter were born…
King Dude is a nickname for Book Of Black Earth’s T.J. Cowgill, and under this moniker he’s active as Folk-artist.
German label Pelagic signed the rather young act Family, a band with four experienced musicians in its ranks. Family recorded this debut, which lasts for forty seven minutes, at Translator Audio (Melvins, Unsane) and it features a guest appearance by John Lamacchia, guitar player in e.g. Candiria, Crooked Man, Julie Christmas and Spylacopa.
