I was quite a ‘fan’ of German Black Metal paganists Thyrgrim, but for some reason, after quite a fine curriculum vitae, they decided to put the band on hold. A pity for sure. But some of the members decided to continue, and this under the moniker of MNHG. It maintains comparisons to Thyrgrim, but the core is quite different, as I will explain immediately.
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.
Quite recently I got in touch with an Italian human being, named Francesco Di Stasio. I knew his name for being the artworker for releases by e.g. Sonologyst, but I did not know that he was the very same guy behind Nihil Impvlse. And it is this project that I will now focus on, passionately and convinced.
The duo Pando has never disappointed me before. Their remarkable muSICKal approach is heavy to digest, but since I have an indestructible stomach, I do swallow all compositions with tasteful pleasure.
[another older release, but so what???]
The word ‘holotrop’ is Greek and means something like exerting yourself towards fullness. The project which this review deals with, took this name from the main member’s inspiration by a psychologist from Czechia, who developed the ‘holotropic breathing method’, which might guide you to reach a stronger, more focused level of the conscious state of mind.
Yeah, when you like it the filthy way, Goatblood will surely please your nastiest desires. This choir was formed ten years ago by D. Janssen aka Satanic Death Vulva (also active in e.g. Blasphemous Putrefaction, Genocide or Nacht) and Reverend Slayer (of Morannon fame).
The light of the moon carried through the earthen doorway. A word from the desert, a word from the mountain, a word found in water. Neither awake nor asleep, the offering quietly transcribed.
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).
