When thinking about aural pleasure from the Quebec era, I usually get forbidden thoughts and hidden pleasures because of my passion for the Black Metal scene out there. But there is a combo called Soil Of Ignorance that sickens man’s brain too, yet not from a blackened angle, yet from a grinding one.
Split CD / Vinyl
In a series of four new releases on Patologian Laboratorio Productions, there is one split, being one in between Kalmankantaja and V-Khaoz. There is some kind of logic behind this split-release, for both projects are very trusted with each other.
This split-album, Void Asceticism, joins two great acts in order to illustrate ‘moral collapse, soul sacrifice, eternal oblivion’. I know, it makes me happy too…
The 12” vinyl stuff was released in an edition of 500 copies on ‘regular’ black vinyl (140g, you know), and each band present three tracks, clocking the whole experience to half an hour.
Kunal did send us (a while ago, but that’s another story) a new MFL Records aka Moscow Funeral League release, this time being a split in between two great Doom acts from Russia and Finland, gathered as The Symmetry Of Grief. Doom on!
Both Arbre and Brouillard are grandiose French acts, which I praised intensively with their former Distant Voices-releases. Also the label itself is quite unique, which you can find back in each of the reviews I did for them in the past (besides both bands on this split: also Misery, Celestial Dirge and Scars From A Dead Room passed the revue; check them out on the site!).
As a teaser for both bands’ upcoming albums, Hypnotic Dirge Records did release a split-EP on vinyl with one track from those full lengths. Based on the result, Doom-fans must watch out for the upcoming material!
