Sieben will consist of five songs and follows Hinab in die vertraute Fremdheit (translates as “Down into the known strangeness”). Shrike are known for a certain psychedelic quality in their music and lyrics, the latter concerning a lot introspection and are not afraid of exploring the vast and dark fields of the mind.

frozen_land_banished_the_everlasting_confinement
I have carried out an “expedition” in search of precious winter treasures and unexpectedly found one, buried deep down beneath the ice. A gem full of power growing since 2006. A single that confirmed my expectations of a real happy new year. Frozen Dawn‘s “The Everlasting Confinement” is what you might need to warm your soul with in the cold winter nights. Incredibly well-crafted, with a mind-blowing quality and melodies that could make you break off your replay button, is the least I can share with you. Listen to “CirclesRead More

“Make them bleed, make them hurt!”

The music that is capable of making you go into different scenes, stories and experience them as if you were the main character is not a common thing. Music in representation of horror, insanity and hatred towards the living. Written in blood, recorded in shadows –  it’s time for you to enter a genial yet murdering mind. The world of  Morgul. Before doing anything else, I’d like to give an insight for those who are not familiar with the art of Morgul. Obviously a black metal band coming from theRead More
amiensus_bandpic
(Amiensus agreed to answer some of the questions to our guest writer Nattramn. We personally want to thank every band member for their time.) How do you describe “Restoration”? Clearly this isn’t just a black metal album, it has lots of influences. James: We typically shy away from calling ourselves black metal at all because we quickly realized (and even before we released it) that this album was… Somewhat eclectic. We are obviously very influenced by black metal but this band is about using what every band member has, talents,Read More
Retribution_of_Life_-_DecayArtwork
(Nattramn reviews the debut album of Gates of Aaru, “In Retribution Of Life & Decay”.) South Africans Gates of Aaru released their debut today. I’ve stumbled upon these guys incidentally on a demo song “Welcome To The New Dawn” which caught me off-guard with it’s fast tempo and aggressiveness, especially the drums. Since then I was looking towards the album. They’re classified as black/death metal but share close sound to the Dimmu Borgir’s Abrahadabra release. That’s what I felt on the first hear and thus make this comparison. Strong symphonicRead More
