And Nothing Shalt Remain is an ‘older’ split-release on French (top) label Hass Weg Productions, done by Greek duo SAD (absolutely quite a productive outfit from Athens since, in mean time, more than a decade, and they have been on the Hass Weg Productions roster before) and French act Mourning Forest, who are totally less productive than their Greek colleagues.

You might have heard of the Noise / Drone / Ambient label Death Carnival Records before. If not, stay tuned, for I will write and upload a handful of releases from that French label in the near future, and on February 15th I uploaded one for a split in between HgM and L_Arsenne. Death Carnival Records are a label run by e.g.
You know (or you do not, but then you will know it as from now on) that I do have a (not that secret) appreciation for Belgian label Immortal Frost Productions, run by Ars Veneficium’s chanteur S. It’s the qualitative result for each release that impresses me a lot.
Frozen Tranquillity is a collaboration in between two projects from Russia (one partly injected with human flesh from Ukrainian soil), which sees the light via, once again, an unholy marriage in between Metallic Media and Symbol Of Domination Productions. It brings three tracks by each participant, resulting in an experience that lasts for fifty four minutes. Here we go…
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.
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!
