There is more darkness than light. More darkness than life. Being alive means nothing more than searching for the meaning of human existence. – Aeons Confer, “Signals” I cannot recall when exactly I discovered Aeons Confer but it was by accident. Their music video “ESP“ crossed my sight and after listening to it for the first time, I was certain that I had to share it with you guys on SBM’s social pages. But that was all back then. After a long while I got back to Aeons Confer with their CD “Symphonies ofRead More

Shrike – Sieben

The Colours of Yearning As previously announced, Berlin based Black Metal formation Shrike have been very, very busy: In June 2013, they released their album Hinab in die vertraute Fremdheit, and not even a year later, Sieben (translates “Seven”), Shrike’s third album, hits the stores. The title refers to the seven years of band history Shrike can look back on, and Sieben should set new accents in their music. I had some problems with Hinab in die vertraute Fremdheit; getting their music wasn’t easy for me – with Sieben this was different, also because the album itself differs very much from theRead More
Welcome back to the second edition of From the depths where this time we head for the hellenic underground scene. It was a little tough to pick just three bands out of a whole bunch of others that kick major ass, meaning that we’re gonna get back to Greece again for sure! However, I know your time is precious, so lets get straight into the core! Note: For those of you who are wondering what the fuck From the depths  is all about, please go through the first edition andRead More
In the previous post of this kind I ranted about the new changes on Facebook and how they affected everybody who is kinda depended on it. This time, I’m gonna try to share some methods that will hopefully be of use to you when promoting your music/merch or whatsoever. First and foremost you need to understand that just liking your page doesn’t guarantee your followers that they will receive your feed. In fact, they are likely to miss up to 90% of it, despite of being your “fans.” To handleRead More

So far they only released a demo titled “TussenRead More
Undeground epic black metallers Noctem Cursis did excite their fans a couple of days ago as they uploaded a track from their upcoming debut album “Nocturnal Frost.” At the first spin of “Les Rivages de la Mort” three main points were noticeable: Maturer sound –  A big leap forward in their work that surely makes “Nocturnal Frost” a deserving winner that tops up their EP “Wrath of Winter.” Splendid composition – Exciting melodies and epic elements mashed into one outcome to suggest a feeling that brings you closer to nature;Read More

Hryre: A promising newborn black metal act

The band is represented by Rick Millington – vocals, guitar and bass, Nathan Patchett – guitar & bass, Gareth Hodgson – drums and Michael Blenkarn – keyboards (guest appearance). Yesterday the band announced their official Facebook pageRead More
