Aesthetic Death

Reido

First I have to make a confession. I did not know this band from Belarus. Seriously, I had not heard of Reido before. And you know, I am gonna make it up all right, because this release… Nope, first things first.

Woebegone Obscure

I’d like to start with a sad announcement. No, wrong, I actually wish I did not need to announce this. But apparently Woebegone Obscured decided to split up last year. A moment of doom and woe. And damn, it does fit to their last effort, which was (and still is) called The Forestroamer.

Haiku Funeral

If I am not mistaken, Haiku Funeral were created in 2008 in the south of France by two guys, Dimitar Dimitrov (vocals, electronics, keyboards, hailing from Bulgaria) and William Kopecky (fretless bass, vocals, sitar; originating from the U.S.) under the influence of hallucinogenic and psychotropic pleasure. After three official recordings in the period 2008-2010, the duo signed to Aesthetic Death, and those trusted with this mind-blowing label will not be surprised.

Arcane Voidsplitter

What will the stars tell us?…

Introduction, part one …

Stijn Van Cauter is a very sympathetic guy, but he’s also a talented musician. I adore about all acts he’s involved with – some more than others, yet I think he’s a notoriety within the worldwide (Funeral-oriented) Doom scene. Some names: Until Death Overtakes Me, Inframonolithium, Beyond Black Void, The Sad Sun – enfin, I can sum up two hands full of projects (often solo) that I like, seen from aural point of view.

Misanthropic Existence

When you call your band ‘misanthropic existence’, I know that you’re doing a great job. So be welcomed, Misanthropic Existence!

Actually, this band was formed at the very beginning of this decade. In 2012 they recorded a first demonstrational mini-recording, and two of these tracks also made it, that very same year, to a split with Baalberith, Razakel Krieg and Mantarok (Satanica Productions). Then things went silent…

Nagaarum

A very productive outfit from Hungary is Nagaarum, a solo-project by In Vacuo / GuilThee’s Gábor Tóth. In less than a decade, Nagaarum released fifteen full lengths and some splits (with the likes of Astru or Dreams After Death).

Fleurety

Fleurety might not be that well-known, I think, but the members are quite notorious names within the (Norwegian) Metal scene. The band was formed in 1991 (!) by Svein Egil Hatlevik (drums and vocals, and additional synths) and Alexander Nordgaren (electric and acoustic guitars, bass). The first one is or was also involved with diverse bands, such as Dødsheimgard, Umoral, Stagnant Waters, Strid (since last year) and many more.

Mekigah

Mekigah are a solo-outfit (in the earliest days, it was a duo) by Vis Ortis, who has been helped once again by a whole horde of same-minded session musicians for this successor of 2014’s Litost, amongst whom Black Rhino / Serpent Pig’s Leith Carnie, who took care of production and mix of this album as well, Yippie Brain’s Thomas K.
