Quite soon after the full length Tysiacletnie Kajdany, which was this band’s fourth full length in a decade and a half of existence, Mystherium return with a new EP, Zwycięstwo. It’s a five-tracker that lasts for twenty-three minutes. The EP comes in a truly beautifully artistic CD-edition via Lower Silesian Stronghold, and there’s a (limited) tape-edition too (Werewolf Promotion). The material was mixed and mastered by Wojciech Cenajek at the Metal Sound Studio.

Blåkulla are an outfit by a French guy who calls himself Surtr Blackmoon Emperor aka S.B.E. (sometimes also active as Sveigdir Bölverks Einherjar). He released two recordings before, Darkened By An Occult Wisdom in 2011 and the EP Hymns To The Past Glory in 2013. Now he returns with his second full length, which gets released in an edition of 1,000 copies via Lower Silesian Stronghold, the label of Dark Fury’s band leader K.
This Story Happened Before… It’s the damn truth! It did happen before. Many times. In Europe, in Asia, in America. Centuries, many centuries ago it happened. Last year it happened in Paris. And now, Brussels… Leaders of Europe: pay attention! This story happened before and it might happen again!
Celtic Dance are a Portuguese band formed two decades ago by Laldaboath, Tzaboath and Conquerer. After the recording of the 1998-debut Ancient Battlecry, Laldaboath and Tzaboath decided to leave, but Conquerer continued his activities with Celtic Dance. FYI: the re-release of that strong debut album was reviewed by undersigned and posted on this site on July 13th 2014.
Divine Blasphemy are a new collaboration with current and former members from, for example, Diabolical Principles (the review on The Final Step Before The Dawn was updated on December 24th 2015), Mortuus Caelum (split Impetum In Tenebris: see November 10th 2014), Dizziness (split with Enoid and Mortuus Caelum, see former reference; new album Bound In Strength: February 7th 2016), Acrimonious (for a description on t
On November 10th 2014 we did upload the review I wrote for a split in between Mortuus Caelum, Enoid and Dizziness. The three of them did surprise me, but Dizziness simply impressed me. It might be a personal opinion, but their contribution on that Impetum In Tenebris split album was the best part on it. So I was quite pleased when the very same label, Lower Silesian Stronghold, did send me the newest effort by this Greek band.
One of the most productive Spanish (Black) Metal artists for sure is Javier ‘Erun’ Sixto, (formerly or currently) active under the banner of e.g.
It’s always a sardonic pleasure to listen to a (new) album on Lower Silesian Stronghold. With this sixth album by Poland’s Demonic Slaughter it’s no difference. This time in co-operation with French label Hass Weg Productions, Lower Silesian Stronghold prove once more that they are able to find qualitative bands (and releases) that are able to please a selected yet superior audience, and able to irritate the stupid, ignorant masses on our filthy globe.
There is no need to write a full introduction on Polish horde Dark Fury, for you can find the necessary information in one of the previously written reviews I did this and last year; just click on the band’s name on top (the same, evidently, goes for the great other material on Lower Silesian Stronghold).
