Pеnitence Onirique - V.I.T.R.I.O.L.; front
Visionaries Penitence Onirique step out of the shadows with the phenomenal debut album “V​.​I​.​T​.​R​.​I​.​O​.​L.” An undisputed masterpiece mixing the best ingredients of melodic and avant-garde black metal. A release worth to be known as one of the best of 2016! Following Death’s footprints Penitence Onirique is a bicephalous collective that hails from Autricum, France. It is exactly the type of bands that make me do what I do everyday – promote unknown artists with an exceptional talent. Not so long ago, these guys started to spread death and misery. The band was born in 2015 andRead More

When both musical and visual artwork of utmost quality collide, a big bang results in massive proportions and one of the causers for such spectacular happenings is once again Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions from France.  This French label introduced to me several bands that took part in SBM sampler vol. 2 and in today’s installment, I would like to present you one of them – the mighty Moonreich. If there’s one thing that I already know for sure about Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions, their trademark is experimental black metal andRead More

I’ve got some brand new stuff to showcase from the headquarters of Les Acteurs de L’Ombre Productions who as always continue to explore the experimental sub-genre and offer its finest. In this installment, Maïeutiste introduce their debut self titled album which is primarily inspired by black metal but incorporates elements from many other genres such as doom, jazz, folk rock and ambient. With that being said, it is very hard to place it under any categories because it simply destroys the illusion of barriers and goes beyond predictable. “Maïeutiste” is out onRead More

A blast from the recent past: Darkenhöld and Sühnopfer

Surprisingly, there are lots of folks out there who still appreciate and support artists who release their albums the old fashioned way – tapes. So I decided to dedicate this quick writing to all individuals who enjoy listening to black metal through their cassette players rather than any other kind of media, which is popular nowadays. I have picked two records, one of which some of you might be already familiar with [read Darkenhöld – “Castellum” review] and Sühnopfer’s “Offertoire.” What’s common about these two is that they are absolutely mind-blowing epic/melodic black albums,Read More

Paramnesia – S/T

As a person who’s obsessed with collecting CDs, one of the criteria I mark the chosen ones by, is the artwork. It must be convincing and expressing the music beneath the fancy packaging. The bond between the visual and the sonic components is vital. In this sense, I came across Paramnesia’s self titled debut album, whose cover art is truly captivating and captures completely the essence of it. “Paramnesia” was released through Les Acteurs De L’Ombre Productions (see The Great Old Ones – Tekeli-Li) earlier in 2014. It is outlinedRead More

The Great Old Ones – Tekeli-Li

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”, said the one and only horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. This man has been an influence to many, particularly The Great Old Ones who have dedicated a musical sub-genre to his novels – “Lovecraftian black metal.” Wondering how Lovecraftian black metal would sound may not bring any definite answers unless you enter the transcendental world that  The Great Old Ones’ tunes emanate from. Their second full-length “Tekeli-Li” continues the obscure adventure,Read More
