I’ll keep the introduction of this band short, for you can find any additional information in any of my former reviews for this stunning project. But it would be kind of me, don’t you think, to add at least a small acquaintance, so here it is. Abigorum is the name of an outfit by Aleksey Korolyov, a very talented and dedicated musician and promotor (and above all: a mostly sympathetic personality, which I truly adore!).
The solo-outfit Gravespawn has a rich biography. I won’t go too deep into the matter, but it’s an interesting fact that this project was formed in South Korea by an American soldier, while serving for his national army in the far East of Asia. We’re talking about the earlier years of this century. Things went quite tranquil, and it wasn’t until the year 2010 and the next ones, to grow ‘bigger’ as studio-act. As from then on, throughout the years, Gravespawn did release several recordings (full-lengths, EP’s and splits with e.g.
(older release, yet always worth being promoted and supported)
After several digitally self-released tracks, the Australian outfit MaziKeen (an archaic Hebrew word meaning something like deleterious soul or detrimental spirit) signed to Satanath Records from St. Petersburgh in order to release their first official full-length album; it’s a cooperative happening with Iron, Blood And Death Corporation from Mexican soil.
Haissem is a solo-outfit by some Andrey V. Tollock, whom you might know from another one-man army too, i.e. Doom-Death project Sunset Forsaken. Haissem however is more productive and diverse, and throughout six years of existence, more than a handful of somewhat differing recordings got released. Amongst those last year’s Kuhaghan Tyyn, available physically via Saint-Peterburg’s Satanath Records.
A short one, yet one way too important not to pay attention to…
This review does not deal with the band Hadopelagyal from the German city of Leipzig, yet with the band Hadopelagial from the German city of Leipzig. Confused? Well, when I did receive two releases at around the same moment, both by a band from Leipzig with (almost) the very same name, except for one single letter, I was sort of confused as well.
This time I am not going to give a ‘full biography’, for I’d like to refer to one of the other reviews I did for this Swiss project (links below) or, for additional info, for any other review I did for several other projects that involves Monsieur Sergio ‘Bornyhake’ Da Silva.
The history of Hungarian band Eclipse Of The Sun goes back to the very end of this century’s first decade. Hailing from the city of Székesfehérvár (close to the Balaton lake, appreciated enormously by undersigned for its fine winery – egészségére!), as a five-piece they did create a first untitled demonstrational EP, soon followed by Symbols, consisting of four new tracks. Several line-up changes followed throughout the years, but in 2015, the band came up with their first official full-length album, Daimonion (independently released).
Ah, sometimes it is truly fine to get confused in a positive way. That’s exactly what happened to me when Aleksey from Satanath Records (amongst others) informed me about the debut of the project The Malice. I have to admit that I did not know this entity, but apparently it’s a pan-European collaboration of two famous and experienced sweeties.
