Taiga

When you’re in the mood for some unhappiness, you must pay attention. As you might know, a taiga is a vast landscape in Arctic and Subarctic regions on our sweet World, with forests and desolate plains, the silence of nature, the absence of joy, the representation of man’s futile existence. As a misanthropic philosopher (or is it a philosophising misanthropist?) such places aren’t but brain candy to me...

Satanath

Yesss! That was my first thought when I heard, about one year ago, that there would be a new Satanath album out soon. There are two main reasons to explain my enthusiasm.

Cultus Profano

Cultus Profano is the name of a new entity from the Californian city of Los Angeles. It is meant to promote cocktails on the beach, fast cars and colourful bath fashion… Not! No, it is an outfit by Arthur Mendiola aka Advorsus, knows as (former or current) drummer (and vocalist) in e.g. Sadistic Intent, Vesterian or Blaskyrkh. He joined forces with (female) guitarist / vocalist Strzyga with Cultus Profano as moniker.

Ugasanie & Xerxes The Dark

Cryo Chamber have never been afraid to release collaboration – I am not talking about split releases, yet about recordings based on a co-operation of different artists. Label owner Simon, for example, has several collabs with his (sublime) project Atrium Carceri, but the same goes for quite a lot projects that are closely related to this label (Alphaxone, Cities Last Broadcast, ProtoU, Council Of Nine, God Body Disconnect and so on).

Moloch Conspiracy

While the companion’s dread was reflected in the stones a way opened. The streaming water formed an ocean that crystallized the light from the incantations and spells of our guide. They discovered the cult that was upsetting the place and that was abandoning itself in despicable rituals from the depths of time.” That is exactly what this album deals with, like an introduction of an illustrious journey through ancient Mesopotamian mysteries, myths and occult rituals, an esoteric trip towards a forgotten cave of metaphysical darkness and lights.

Altars Of Grief

Hailing from the very south of Saskatchewan (actually, they are from the city of Regina), not that far from the border with our oh so beloved country U.S.Aargh, Altars Of Grief are another Extreme Doom band from Canadian soil – or is it Prairie Doom they are performing...

various artists - Visions Of Darkness

Iran… Known for its repressive government, Shiite-religious fundamentalism, millennia-old Persian civilization (more than 2,500 years of culture, including a huge heritage of historical remnants – praise and respect!), beautiful women (these women have the most beautiful eyes in the world), tasteful ab kusht, even a successful wrestling team and a fabulous, undeniably attractive anti-appreciation for our Earth’s newest Caesar, Mister Donald T... But when it comes to Music, well, that might seem quite limited, even narrow-minded, in our western countries.
