Altar of Perversion

Intra Naos By Calus ‘Intra Naos’ is the result of many years of intermittent work, which had its inspirational apex becoming incessant during the years from 2011 to 2015, when we finally entered the recording studio. This period saw something unlocking, allowing me to finally dig deeper and fully explore the still underlying layers and…

Spectrale

Triangle by Jeff Grimal Spectrale is Jeff Grimal’s solo project started in 2014. It is the result of long-term work on acoustic, hypnotic and esoteric music exploration. The band released a demo in May 2016 on “Inductive Oppression Records”, but also a Split on “Emanations” with the help of Jean Baptiste Poujol for some tracks…

Au-Dessus

End of Chapter By Mantas ‘End of Chapter’ examines the same topics as the first one as it is a sequel to our self-titled EP. It’s more like an emotional journey through our vocalist’s thoughts on society, social norms or life in general. We never intended to put some statement or send some message it’s…

Sikth

Sikth and Destroy Sikth formed in 1999 in England and immediately became one of the most influential bands in the progressive and djent genre. Their music was innovative and without a doubt ahead of their time, and this gained them recognition, acknowledgement and respect between the prog-metal fans scene. The band started touring the world…

Hooded Menace

Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed By Lasse Pyykkö For me, the songwriting process was the most enjoyable part of the whole process – as always. The songs came out quite painlessly, and it was a rewarding experience. The recording is often a bit stressful and this time was no exception, but it went pretty well even if…

Arstidir

Nivalis By Daníel Auðunsson Árstíðir is a three-piece band from Reykjavík Iceland. Involuntary intertwined to the Icelandic calendar of big events, Árstíðir was founded in the same month as the 2008 stock market crash, and the band embarked on its first international tour in the same month as the Eyjafjallajökull eruption in 2010. After years…

Alkaloid

Liquid Anatomy By Morean Alkaloid is a band that is defined through the field of tension created between musical opposites, merging death metal and other more diverse genres of music into unique alchemy of extremes. Founded in Germany in 2012 by five seasoned metal warriors from (ex-)bands like Obscura, Aborted, Dark Fortress, Noneuclid, Spawn of…

Seven Sisters

The Cauldron and the Cross By Kyle McNeill Yeah, that’s correct, our new album ‘The Cauldron and the Cross’ was released in April this year. We’ve been active as a band since 2013, and this is our second full-length album. We recorded it at Knight Time Studios in London with producer Jim Knight at the…

Monument

Hellhound By Peter Ellis I have a background in classical music and studied classical guitar for 8 years. I became involved with bands as a teenager, starting as a guitarist and then moving on to being a singer at the age of 19. There are always challenges when putting an album together. On this one,…

The Vintage Caravan

Gateways By Óskar Logi Our goal is always to become better as a band, write better songs, perform better as a live unit and perform more concerts over the globe. With expectations it’s different. It very hard maintains expectations when you’re so involved in a band since situations can change within days or even hours.…

The Spirit

Sounds from the Vortex by MT We started to create ‘Sounds from the Vortex’ immediately after we founded the band at the end of 2015. Most of the band members didn’t know each other back then. While we worked on this album, we all became part of something bigger, The Spirit. I realised again during…

Khemmis

Desolation By Phil Pendergast We come from a variety of backgrounds and musical experiences, ranging from death and black metal to stoner rock to a brief stint in a Judas Priest cover band. We spent the last half of 2017 writing and demoing the material that eventually became the six songs on Desolation. The most…

Graveyard

Peace By Joakim Nilsson and Truls Mörck Joakim: I guess there’s no story behind this album. Truls: It’s not a concept album. It’s just a collection of songs that we wrote during this particular time. That was special for because it was written during and right after we had split up. That was different I…

Follow The Cipher

Follow The Cipher By Jonas Asplind, Karl Löfgren, Linda Toni Grahn JA:  We want to catch the feeling of something big and bombastic; like Hollywood movies in the style of Mad Max and Terminator when you hear us. KL: Chris Rörland made the cover (he’s most famous for playing the guitar in Sabaton). The songs…

Taken by the Tide

Revenge by Phil Illsley Our new record ‘Revenge’ was out Aug 3rd, 2018. It’s the culmination of a couple of years of struggle and difficulties. It represents the band, against all the odds, pushing forward. We do things a little strangely in this band. I’m not sure if it’s because of happenstance or [we joke…

Omnium Gatherum

The Burning Cold by Jukka Pelkonen The musical backgrounds of every member differ a bit. There is a classical background, studying the theory of music, a lot of playing in different groups etc. It is pretty basic stuff. Of course the music we have listened and also listen influences and serves as background material for…

Lucifer

Lucifer II By Nicke Andersson and Johanna Sadonis Nicke: It’s got nine songs of Lucifer heavy rock. Johanna: Yes, nine songs of heavy rock. We can recommend it. Nicke: Johanna had the concept. Ester Segarra took the photo. Johanna and I laid it out. I can’t say it tells the story of the album, no.…

Baest

Danse Macabre By Simon Olsen The album is coming out the 17/8, and we are stoked to release our debut finally! Of course, we wish to blow people’s mind with our uncompromising death metal, and our primary goal is casual world domination. We work daily with songwriting, Doomstar (our booking agency), Century Media (our label)…

Alien Weaponry

Tū By Henry and Lewis de Jong We’re a thrash metal band with groove and nu metal influences. We also sing about half our material in Te Reo Maori, which is the native language of New Zealand. Lewis used to obsessively watch David Gilmour and Stevie Ray Vaughan DVDs when he was really young –…
