Gloomy Grim

Two years and something after their last full-length studio album (The Age Of Aquarius, Satanath Records and Murdher Records), Finnish cult-horde Gloomy Grim returns with a new recording.

Ars Veneficium / Ulvdalir

Immortal Frost Productions is known especially for the many releases on compact disc, yet as from a couple of years ago, though quite modest, the label also released some material on vinyl. It all started with a split 12” EP in very early 2015, gathering Finland’s finest Azaghal and Belgian act Ars Veneficium, which involves label owner S. Now the label comes up with the tenth vinyl release, which is once again a split that includes Ars Veneficium.

Har

Har are a young project but consisting of experienced musicians from Israel. The members of this Tel Aviv based act were or are in other notorious bands such as Mortuus Umbra, Witchcraft Sadomizer, Mocous Scrotum (hey guys, are you still alive?), Sonne Adam and so on. The band independently released a first EP in 2014, called Baal Ha’ov (there was a tape-edition too, quite limited, via Orgasmatron Records), and then everything seemed to fade away in total silence.

Marche Funèbre

Everybody knows Carmina Burana by Karl Orff, and especially the O Fortuna fragment, for it has been used hundreds of times before as intro on a (demonstrational) recording or for a live gig.

Malakhim

I will not spend too much time in an introduction this time, for I hope this band will come up with a full length soon; and then I will give a more profound and appropriate description of this band’s history, discography and biography. But I cannot but mention that Malakhim consists of members of e.g. Naglfar and Sanity Of Impiety. The five-piece was formed in 2016, and they had a first demo in 2017.

Ater

The Flemish artist Wesley Beernaert might not be that known (not yet!), but there is quite a big possibility that you have heard him ‘singing’ before. He has been doing vocals for Lemuria for several years, for the international act Fabulae Dramatis (worth checking out if you can appreciate a more progressive approach!), for Satyrus (also an important name within the Flemish underground scene), for September Syn, or for Persephone’s Blade (with former members of e.g.

Nefastu

Nefastu was (actually it must be: ‘is’) a band from Oporto, Portugal, that was modestly active at the beginning of this decade. But with exception of some demonstrational material (there were, I think, only two demo-tapes in 2011 and 2012), the band did not exactly record anything that would put their name on the (worldwide) map. Now, after more than six years of silence, the trio returns with three new tracks, gathered on vinyl, being limited to an edition of 150 copies.

Vandalorum

I have to admit that, when it comes to Dungeon Synth Music, I can be extremely aroused, or immensely irritated. Some projects delve deep into mystery and magic spheres, while others just try to create a superficial would-be world of fake phantasies. Dungeon Synth, as it was once created for, needs depth, content and significance. At least, that’s my opinion, but those semi-happy 8-bit oriented projects that are conquering this scene lately do insult the essence of dark-spirited Aural Art.
