Hailing from deepest, darkest Suffolk, Ghosts of Atlantis are a metal band that carry a wealth of experience and professionalism. Like both Cradle Of Filth, and Devilment before it, Ghosts of Atlantis continues the tradition and staple of the witch county trademark sound. The sound is dark and aggressive, sinister and twisted, yet universally appealing due to big chorus lines, emotive orchestration and massive hooks. Sonically, the band crosses many genres and lyrical styles, from poetic spoken word elements, full choirs, and memorable choruses to guttural destruction carried forth through the main vocals. Ghosts of Atlantis (G.O.A) features both present and past members of Devilment, Failed Humanity, The Conflict Within and Cold Lazarus. The band members involved have been signed to Nuclear blast, Candlelight records and New rising records. All of the members have been in bands together for the last 9 years, and the chemistry within the band is superb. All have been on either headline or support tours across the world in their various projects. Some names of note include Lacuna Coil, Motionless in White, Times of Grace, Prong, Biohazard, Lock up, and Soilwork. Add to this, a long line of festivals such as Graspop, summer breeze, Rockharz, hammerfest, Wave gothik treffen, and main stage performances at Bloodstock open air in the UK.

2017 release. With the release of Ambition Rocks, their first album in 25 years, and with a new lineup, AOR and classic rock band Da Vinci returns with brand new songs. The group was formed in Norway back in 1986, and after a short round with demos, the band got a record deal with Polygram Norway and released their debut album the following year. Looking back on the Norwegian melodic rock of the 80's, one of the bands to leave a major impression were undoubtedly Oslo's Da Vinci. Enjoying as much radio play and charting nationally in the same league as Return, Stage Dolls and TNT, Da Vinci released two albums, Da Vinci and Back in the Business. DaVinci was touring constantly from late 86 to 92 and did over 600 performances in Norway. They also played as support for Status Quo on their Christmas Remedy tour in 1989 in Great Britain together with Ole Evenrude. The last concerts were two gigs at Wembley Arena. They split up in 93, but Selboskar, Westlie and Aass continued to write songs together for a few years. Some of these demo songs were illegally released in Europe. Jarle MĂ„loy moved to the north of Norway. Bjorn Boge started Street Legal together with Bjorn Olav Lauvdal and Selboskar was in the band on keys several years. Gunnar Westlie formed his own band called Tjugods and Lars Aass started working as a songwriter at Waterfall Productions. In 2004 Selboskar and Westlie started to write AOR songs together again and formed Eidsivating with the drummer from Son of Angels, Geir Digernes, and after some years with a lot of songs and different members, this project ended up in today's Da Vinci.

It has now been two years since Nordvis released Grifts outstanding debut album, "Syner". Since then, the bands mastermind Erik GĂ€rdefors has released a split with Drudkh, and a cassette of acoustic songs recorded live in the forest. The new album, "Arvet" ("The Heritage") continues where "Syner" left off. Once again, Erik has struggled with the endless big questions that sensitive people have always struggled with and have tried to express. From the small and seemingly insignificant in every human being, to something that always pulsates and becomes meaningful in some way; beyond the meadows and the forests. The heritage we carry within us is something we never can escape from. An inheritance is something that characterizes every individual in often paradoxical ways. It may be a social heritage, a biological heritage, a religious heritage, etc. With this album Grift wants to illuminate the always ongoing journey from the small safe place in each mans heart to the great unforeseen life. We often think that everything is going to shape from scratch to something unique. But sooner or later we understand our vulnerabilities and falls back to what we have inherited since we were innocent children. The album was written and recorded entirely by Erik in his studio, Eremitaget Liesmia. In addition to the usual instruments, Erik has also chosen to include the old Swedish instrument, Psalmodikon, which was used mostly during the 19th century in poor Swedish congregations. Erik has also recorded nature sounds from the forests around where he lives. A tawny owls howling, the scream of a fox, and other unspecific sounds contribute to build up the right kind of atmosphere. Three guests also contribute with their characteristic voices. Ludvig from Forndom, Inkantator Koura from Mosaic, and Elea from NoĂȘta & Undantagsfolk. To illustrate the ideas behind the song "Den stora tystnaden" ("The Great Silence") a music video has been filmed. The video follows the red thread from the former music video "SvĂ€ltorna" produced in 2015.

2018 release. The year was 2370 C.E. A great war was coming to an end, and with it's twilight it brought the dawn of a new era. Since it had caused the war, religion in any form was declared a danger to all of mankind. Thus, it was outlawed, all writings were destroyed and lost forever. This was the fall of religion, the birth of a new era. All who remained agreed on starting anew from their new year One. This event has since then become known to the following generations of mankind as The Outlawing. Some 700 years after the Outlawing, mankind flourished. Working together as one, the technological advancements growing beyond control. While some stayed on in this new era, others chose to travel and colonize other systems and planets. However, the ones that stayed advanced so far in technology that they thought that it would be within mankind's power to create another moon. This to better control the climate for Earths overwhelming pollution due to the fallout. The attempt failed. Instead the Moon was destroyed in the process and plunged Earth into disarray for hundreds of years, the surface becoming a total wasteland. Many went below the surface into the Earth and under the seas, creating civilization anew. Mastering the art of Genetic Engineering, they called themselves The Hybrid-born. Genetically tailored to be a society of nonviolent people almost void of emotion and with an incredible longevity. Whilst some flourished in this new society, some chose to travel and migrate to other planets as well as other solar systems.

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

"Bergtagen" is a gloomy and mystical journey into the darkened shrine of dungeon synth. It is deeply inspired by the folklore of ancient Sweden and the dramatic nature that has left and continues to leave it's time-worn scars on the landscape of the country and, in the harsher fringes, the faces of it's people. The album pays homage to the rusty tones of autumn and succeeds in replicating that magical feeling of a lone walk through the woods as the russet hued leaves crunch underfoot. Take time out to free yourself from the many heavy chains that modern society burdens you with to immerse yourself in the solemn, Swedish beauty of Örnatorpet. To quote a certain famous show, 'winter is coming.

2018 release. Beyond the Katakomb is the brainchild of Swedish metal vocalist L-G Persson, known from the power metal-band The Storyteller. As Persson envisioned a new environment for his powerful and dramatic voice, he decided to enlist producer Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry, Kaipa, Nocturnal Rites) to help him unleash this album on an unexpecting world. Nilsson brought in guitarist Daniel Palmqvist to be a part of the songwriting team and to handle the guitar duties. Matt Guillory is the keyboardist, well known in the world of progressive metal from his virtuoso performances with James Labrie and Dali's Dilemma. On the bass you'll find none other than metal veteran Johan Niemann (Evergrey, Talisman, Tiamat, ex Therion) laying the foundation for the band and bringing his own brand of thunder. Also involved in the project is Henrik Ohlsson, whose ingenious and vivid lyrics greatly contribute to the album and the dark tales it tells. Drawing inspiration from gothic mysticism and the underworld, each song takes the listener on a progressive metal journey. All the talents of the musicians involved were optimized and fine-tuned by mastermind Per Nilsson, whose skills as a producer, songwriter and arranger make this record shine. Welcome to step inside the Katakomb, if you dare

2018 release. Beyond The Scars is more than a new album for Cayne. It represents a rebirth, an awakening, a new chapter for the Italian band, after a long silence lasting 4 years. During these years of turmoil Cayne changed and grew up, then started to write new music, feeding the project with new blood. The wounds mended, leaving scars. And beyond the scars the new Cayne stands with this album. Beyond The Scars delivers the power of Cayne's sound, while taking things a step further. Giordano's great vocal skills have created unforgettable melodies enriched by a wide use of synthesizers and electronics, as well as the inclusion of the violin, whose presence became much more consistent on this new album than in the past. "I felt this urge to realize something slightly different than what can be deemed as the typical Cayne sound" says Giovanni: "I have been listening to a variety of different music and found inspiring bands such as White Lies, New Order and Riverside, among others. This brought me to discover new sounds and patterns that typically do not belong to metal music". The upcoming album includes 12 songs and lasts for almost an hour. It includes the track "Blessed By The Night" accompanied by a comic video featuring the guys from the band riding a DeLorean in a wild night and meeting a bunch of famous cinema-, comic- and music stars from the '80s.

Some questions asked with a heavy heart are not always to be answered. Still, they need to be asked. Some prophecies of things to come are not pleasant to contemplate. Still, they will be revealed by the unyielding passage of time. Some memories are best left buried. Still, what's left behind usually greets you ahead. This bittersweet duality of harsh reality battling sentimentality is one of the core aspects of being human, and nowhere is it better expressed than on Grift's new album "Budet".The passion and despair found herein claw at your soul and heartstrings, leaving you breathless yet rejuvenated by the sheer force of the emotional outburst carried out by the six diverse songs. With a foundation in both desolate folk and melancholic harsh metal, "Budet" employs traditional instruments such as the lonely chords of a reed organ and exquisite violins, the latter courtesy of Georg Börner (ColdWorld, Sangre de Muerdago.) Erik GÀrdefors's vehement, bordering on desperate, vocal outbursts convey the introspective and thoughtful lyrics in a most gripping manner, and the thick rural atmosphere is at the same time both nostalgic, anguish-filled and redeeming. The long melody lines stretch through the years and brush the leaves of trees long gone, but also ones still to bloom, breathing an aura of timelessness. There is a healing, forgiving and hopeful spirit amidst the solitary gloom, as "Budet" peers into the unknown that is still to come. In Erik's own words: "I would say that this is an album that is more about the future than my previous albums; about things around us that undoubtedly will happen sooner than later." If you're in pursuit of reflection and contemplation, to explore your mind and soul, to live in times past and times to come, look no further. Grift will take you beyond.

In the seas polluted with all kinds of sludge, drone and stoner hybrids, finding a real pearl of epic doom metal is a treat. In Aevum Agere is one such pearl. They follow in the footsteps of the doom metal forefathers, but the founder/guitarist/vocalist, Bruno Masulli, is also a big fan of Chuck Schuldiner, which you can clearly hear in his guitar parts. On their 2nd album, this Italian trio pays tribute to the most important Italian poet, Dante Alighieri, and his magnum opus "Divine Comedy". Focusing on the Inferno part, they've managed to capture the epicness of this poem really well, creating a perfect soundtrack to this imaginary journey through the circles of hell. There's a good variety in these compositions, and the declamations in Italian add to the atmosphere. A powerful sounding album, with clean and strong vocals, memorable melodies and riffs. Those who love CANDLEMASS, SOLITUDE AETURNUS, SORCERER, MEMENTO MORI, BELOW, FORSAKEN, EVANGELIST, THUNDERSTORM and CRYPT SERMON need to have it in their collections!

Lonely Grave

Craterface

CD: $10.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

UmeÄ trio Lonely Grave's debut full-length, Craterface, is an infernal powerhouse of pestilent, grinding crust. Despite the almost nonstop high energy level, the record's atmosphere is oppressive and suffocating. Opener "The Extremist" makes an unforgettable entrance with a deafening cacophony of diseased, rotting noise, soon interrupted by a breakneck d-beat assault and churning blasts. Running just under seventeen minutes, Craterface is by no means a long album, but honestly I don't think it could feel more complete. Lonely Grave lays out a perfect amount of variation between the bursts of hardcore, with (thank God) sparingly used headbang-inducing breakdowns and even an interlude of harsh noise meandering on "Craterface." It ends incredibly strongly too, the ominous sample that concludes "Buy Punk Gloves" providing a final repose before the pumping thrashcore riffs of "Don't Let Me In" and the slow, sludgy closer "The Three Beggars" - which, at only two and a half minutes, thankfully avoids the grind cliche of a drawn out, repetitive last song, which is seemingly hardly ever done well. Craterface handily accomplishes a difficult task: it feels short in a good way without leaving the listener feeling gypped, and all I want to do is listen again and again. 2019 release from the Swedish metal trio.

Vietah

Czornaja Cvii

Vinyl: $30.98 Buy

Limited vinyl LP pressing of this 2015 release, the fourth album by the atmospheric black metal phenomenon from Belarusian Swamps. Vietah is the brainchild of Antarctis, an artist hailing from the city of Gomel situated in the southeastern part of Belarus, close to the Ukrainian border. Over the years I Hate has worked hard to put the spotlight on former Eastern Bloc artists, who rarely get the attention they deserve from metal fans or media. Such a description is spot on in the case of Vietah! In a state where the political regime (in conspiracy with the church) does not look lightly upon metal-extreme metal in particular-and takes every chance to counteract or shut down everything not fitting their agenda, Vietah has managed to stay active for ten years, releasing four convincing full-length albums to date. Antarctis handles all instruments himself and delivers some really desperate vocals sung in the Belarusian language, giving his creations a unique touch - the folk soul of the Belarusian people permeates through Vietah's incantations.

2020 release. More than 20 years ago, a power metal alliance was formed in Greece, with vast influences and great passion, inspired by artists like Manowar, Warlord, Domine and Basil Poledouris. Sacred Outcry was formed in 1998 as an epic metal band. In their first years, they even performed live supporting Doomsword. In 2001 they entered the studio to record their debut album Damned For All Time, a process that took 2 long years before the band came to a halt. The only thing left behind was a rough mix and the belief that someday the album would be completed in the form it truly deserved. "And still, throughout the years, we had people asking for the album", the band says. "We always knew that the time would eventually come, the stars would align and the old flame would be rekindled". Because the flame never dies. The recordings were completed between 2015-2018, orchestral arrangements were added and editing, mixing and mastering was finished in 2019. Finally, Sacred Outcry present the first chapter in The Sacred Chronicles under the title Damned For All Time, performed by George Apalodimas (bass), Dimitris Perros (lead & rhythm guitars), Stelios Darakis (drums), Vagelis Spanakis (acoustic guitars), John Skalkotos (keys) and very special guest Yannis Papadopoulos (ex-Wardrum, Beast In Black) in lead vocals.

With two enthralling full-length albums in the bank, German dark folk entity Prag 83 returns with something new, something old. "The Dance" is a compilation of the three EP's Herr K. has created, one of which now gets it's first ever release. Even though consisting of separate releases, the melancholic and reflective red thread is easily discerned through the whole of "The Dance". Morose melodies, crestfallen chords and melancholic moods permeate the seven songs, with Herr K.'s hypnotizingly soothing voice weaving through the gloom with inimitable grace. Contrasting with the harmonic, acoustic and elegiac beauty of the first two EP's "Énouement" and "A Fire's Blessing", rugged and clamorous drums and guitars provide a dynamic boost as unreleased EP "The Dance" displays a fiercer side of Prag 83 while never compromising with the intimate vehemence. If you're longing for heartfelt, elegant and wistful tunes that pack an emotional punch, "The Dance" is for you.

70's rock had a revival during the latest ten years, but what is it that makes a band stand out in today's great variety of this kind of rock? Is it the uncompromising rawness of the blues-based Sabbath riffs that once was written? Is it the vintage speakers and instrument, combined with pure analogue recording that the commercial scene lacks? Or is it just spelled Captain Crimson? Four enthusiasts from Örebro, Sweden, have managed to shape a palette of blues-based rock with heavy, fuzzy elements. The result is a full-length album called "Dancing Madly Backwards" and recollects the tunes of GRAVEYARD, WITCHCRAFT, MOUNTAIN and LEAF HOUND. Captain Crimson also features Stefan NorĂ©n from BLOWBACK, who released "800 Miles" on Transubstans in 2010. As the band says: "We guarantee you that this album makes you swing your head to the beat of the music and fill you with euphoria that many bands lack." No more needs to be said.

De Oord

CD: $20.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $1.79 Download

2018 split release. Two of the Netherlands' most innovative black metal bands, Fluisteraars and Turia, have aligned to release a conceptual split album on Eisenwald. Both hailing from Gelderland, a more densely forested area of the Netherlands, the bands' take inspiration from the regions' history and their natural surroundings. Conceptually, the album deals with the two primary rivers, the Waal and the Rhine, that mark the area around Arnhem and Nijmegen, their respective hometowns. Highlighting the bonds forged between both bands, the record is called de Oord, an old Dutch word designating the area where two rivers meet. In keeping with the theme of the two rivers symbolically meeting, the bands recorded and produced their respective sides together simultaneously at Klaverland Studio: a recording studio in a nature reserve, where the Rhine enters the Netherlands. Roduced and engineered by Turia and Fluisteraars, mixed by A. de Vries. Mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios in the spring of 2018.

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 2011 album including two bonus tracks. These US power/thrash veterans probably don't need much introduction... But what can be said about this album? Well, for sure you can't expect another Kill to Survive after 23 years. Dead to the World contains more mellow and classic US power metal, but that's how Meliah Rage have been playing in the recent years, even though they can still thrash with machine-gun guitar attacks. Mike Munro is gone (however sang on one of the songs) and Paul Souza stepped in again to deliver some of the darkest lyrics in band's history with a voice that showcases a wider range. It's a hook-filled album with great melodic lines and with crunchy riffs, played by seasoned musicians delivering their goods with confidence. Still most comparable to Metallica, but fans of Metal Church, Wargasm and Xentrix should dig it too!

2017 release. Desolation, from the small inglorious town Kramfors, Sweden, was an obscure death metal act, originally active from 1990 to 1995, releasing one demo tape in 1993. However, in 2013 the squad was again called into action with 3/4 of the same line-up as back in the day. Spinning their self-released LP at the I Hate HQ felt like being dealt a knockout blow. After regaining consciousness, we quickly offered the band a CD release of the album! Instead of the zillions of tired comebacks, this was something different! Desolation's sound is perfect for fans of the earliest Scandinavian '90s death metal - without the usual clichés. Think of the oldest Dismember-feeling, Bolt Thrower with a slightly blackened edge, and the Death (band) inspired debut album "Dark Endless" by Marduk. This album should have been released in 1992 or 1993 and received the credit it deserves! Fresh and old school!

Archive release from the Swedish metal legends. The Stockholm/Gothenburg branch of early Swedish extreme metal has been really well-documented, but the area in and around the city of Norrköping in the Östergötland province likewise spawned famous acts like Marduk, Allegiance, Darkified, etc. In classic healthy underground style, a lot of other quality ensembles resided within that movement. One of the absolute best was Amenophis, and during their years of activity (1989-1995) they were responsible for two classy demos: Amenophis in 1991 and The Twelfth Hour in 1992. Both demos (containing all the material ever put to tape) have now been collected onto one disc with an extensive biography written by founding member Tim Pettersson. Amenophis were strongly tied to the classic old sounds of Death, Possessed, Celtic Frost - connecting it with a Swedish early `90s death metal edge. Some of the Amenophis members also played in the aforementioned Darkified and Allegiance. The Demos 1991-1992 compilation is an important piece of Swedish extreme metal history and a must for all serious old school collectors.

These early Scandinavian predecessors continue to be widely influential acts that have inspired more great bands over the last 20 years or so. For Division Vansinne, they look to follow in a similar vein to some of Sweden's all-time greats, playing a 90's nostalgic brand of Death/Black Metal. It fixes that itch for anyone looking for a refined old-school sound.

2015 release, the third album from the sleazy Swedish hard rockers. After touring all over the world for their sophomore release, in Wonderland, this hard-working crew went into the studio to record this full-length. The album goes back to basics, but still with a modern twist to it. The new songs are faster, rougher and edgier - all this because of a different approach to songwriting and a different vibe within the band. Highly recommended for any fan of Pretty Maids, Axxis, Edguy, and Masterplan!

Do We Want It?

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2018 release. The duo RÄhypnos was formed 2015 in Gothenburg by Nadja Virgé and Pablo Rautenberg. They released their self-titled debut EP 2016 and the press described their music as dark Indie mixed with modern Pop. A club tour around Sweden followed and RÄhypnos also got some media attention with interviews and a live performance on Swedish national radio (P4 Gothenburg). In 2017 RÄhypnos main focus was on recording the album Do We Want It? The sound is impressive. It is well-produced and dynamic, with emotional contrasts between a melancholic minimalism and heavy walls of distortion. The album contains a wild blend of influences from rock and dark wave to electronica and modern dance music, and result is as convincing as it is experimental. Do We Want It? is a record about identity, limits and failures, but also about hope. The message is clear: everyone has a responsibility and there is always a possibility for change.

Bergraven

Dodsvisioner

Vinyl: $29.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $6.99 Download

Vinyl LP pressing. It is hard to believe that eleven years have passed since PĂ€r Gustafsson's Bergraven released Dodsvisioner into the black metal biome. Impishly experimental and yet highly honed and focused, it is an album that seeps it's way into the subconscious as all the best black metal is won't to do. Perhaps the most striking sensation you get when listening to this album is that doom-informed riffs, idiosyncratic grooves and shadowy interludes included, you are experiencing the work of a mind open to integrating sounds that are rarefied in the often stubbornly traditional black metal genre. It would be difficult to talk about Dodsvisioner without a nod in the direction of Xasthur and Burzum before them, but Bergraven's black metal is not as repetitive and only sometimes as hypnotic as these forebears. The subtle shifts in tempo and dizzying experimental deviations rife on Dodsvisione play tricks on the listener's mind, much like mountains from which the first part of the band's name come can disorientate and confuse weary walkers, rendering madness a distinct possibility.

Mika has been playing drums and percussion in various bands since 1981 and has played all genres from jazz to metal and composed songs for different genres and this legacy of mixed genres can be heard in the Imperium songs.

For this project, Mika is writing all the songs and lyrics, and is playing all drums, bass, keyboards and singing backing vocals. All the lead vocals and guitars are played by various very talented musicians from the Finnish metal/rock scene. The album's post production was mixed by Erkka Korhonen (Urban Tale, Northern Kings, Ari Koivunen, Raskasta Joulua) and mastered by the legendary Mika Jussila (Nightwish, Children of Bodom, Stratovarius, HIM etc.) The album was produced and recorded during 2012-2015 by Mika himself at his Groovehouse studio in Vantaa, Finland.

Battlerage

Dreams In Darkness

CD: $20.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2018 release, the fourth studio album of these heavy metal veterans of the Chilean scene, formed in 2002. Professional recording and production resulting in xceptionally clear and powerful sound meeting the highest modern standards, but at the same time staying old school enough for the traditional heavy metal style. It's been seven long years since the last album of these Chilean heavy metal warriors, but finally the follow-up to their third full-length is here and it's their most varied one to date. As uncompromising as before, but with new facets to their songwriting, standing with one foot firmly planted in US metal and one in European metal, especially the Teutonic metal of the '80s, they are once again fighting for a true metal victory, though the style is better described now as just plain heavy metal. They've exchanged the axe for the sword, no less deadly but oh so much more versatile. From speed metal bullets to mid-tempo fist-raisers, the album packs everything you can expect from Battlerage, but often with a new and unexpected twist to it. Reinventing themselves while remaining themselves, this is surely their strongest and most original album so far.

MP3 Album: $7.99 Download

Crea has never really been interested in sounding like anything else. Crea is not afraid to explore and question our multi-nuanced reality. Armed with poetic stories that are often based on human behaviour Crea gives room for each tone to paint a vivid picture heading into the listeners mind. Crea is a progressive Linkoping-based rock band that has been around since 1988 led by founder-member guitarist and vocalist Peter Gren. From the beginning, the band was called Mugabes Manna which in 1989 was changed to the Crea Brotherhood. In 1990, their current drummer Sonny Johansson joined the band and they dropped the brotherhood to change to a shorter name, thus Crea. Bassist Nicke Bjerke joined the band in 1992 and in 2001 they made their last gig with their keyboardist Tomas B who had to leave the band because of personal reasons. Crea then continued to exist as a trio until 2013 when keyboardist Anders Karlsson joined the band. Several other members have come and gone over the years, such as several choir singers, 1 lead singer, 1 violinist, 2 previous bassists, 1 former drummer and also a guitarist who participated in the years 1988-1992. Several recordings and gigs of songs have been made through the years in smaller formats. But it wasn't until 2018 things really became magic. Crea came in touch with Roy Lunberg, producer and owner of Studio Connect. Roy had just bought and rigged a new drum set in his studio and wanted to make a test recording. Roy was so amazed by Crea so instead of recording one song, Crea was allowed to record 8 songs that Roy both produced and mixed in his studio called "Studio Connect" An entire album came to life. After having signed a contract with Sound Pollution in the spring of 2019, Crea was finally ready for the whole wide world with their album Dwarves & Penguins.

Loch Vostok rose out of the collapse of Progressive Metal band Mayadome in 2001. After 10 years Drummer Teddy Möller was tired of the cheeze and decided to start something meatier - Loch Vostok was born. Three core members, Mayadome founder Teddy Möller, Keyboardist Sebastian Okupski and Bass Player Erik Grandin set about formulating a new act. Möller would switch from his erstwhile role as a drummer to that of lead vocalist/guitarist and with the incorporation of former El Presidente guitarist Niklas Kupper alongside ex Imperial Domain drummer Alvaro Svanerö the band was complete. However, Grandin was to relocate to the USA and so former Mellow Poetry guitarist Tomas "Tym" Jonsson stepped in to fill the bass vacancy. Utilizing producer Daniel Bergstrand, Loch Vostok cut a self-financed album "Dark Logic" entirely based upon infamous serial killers such as Henry Lee Lucas, Andreij Tzjikatilo and Ed Gein. The first label to pick up the album for distribution would be the Russian concern CD-Maximum. Shortly after the Russian release, Portugese label Magnetism Records contracted Loch Vostok, and released "Dark Logic" worldwide August 1st 2004.

2018 release. Iskandr returns with it's second full-length album Euprosopon. The album's title expresses the impossibility of the ideal man. However, formulating new concepts of heroism is nessecary to preserve ideas of strife and longing in an age of eternal devaluation. The record departs from previous works in it's more pronounced songwriting, confrontational attitude and triumphant regal flourishes. Euprosopon aims to evoke heroic medieval symbolism, while taking musical cues mainly from Norwegian classics such as Enslaved's Eld, the Dark Sorcery EP by Aeternus and... Again Shall Be by Hades, to enrich it's already established style and sound. Supported by the session drums and production assistance of M. Koops of Fluisteraars, Euprosopon surely will be seen as a definite leap in an attempt to chart a path of noble and austere black metal art.

The cycle of life and nature is a precious and wondrous thing. We are born. We learn. We live. We die. And after death, another life awaits. When the world succumbs to the cold and dark grasp of winter, the promise of a spring birthing everything anew keeps hope alive. Such is the journey we make, and such is the lifespan of "Fa_ir". Heaving, pulsating, filled with contrasts. Ardent hostility and fiery revenge, blossoming life and lush fertility, soul-wrenching grief and deep anguish. Such is the path we walk, under the guidance of the deities. The helping hand of a father. The nurturing wisdom in times of need. But, sometimes, a treacherous god who leads us into death and despair - albeit always with an underlying purpose. Such is "Fa_ir".With eloquence, elegance and emotion, L. SwÀrd has created another monolith of sublime art to add to Forndom's impeccable discography. This highly awaited follow-up to 2016's "Daudra Dura" is nothing short of a modern masterpiece, rooted in ancient ways. The expressive vocals and strings soar on top of a foundation of unyielding drums, like spirits dancing in the skies yet connected to the human pulse. Never surrendering the strong connection to our mortal world, there is a deeply sacred dimension to "Fa_ir". A glimpse of the divine, seen through a lens of devotion and veracity. The joining of death and life, if you will.The thick atmospheres and vast inner landscapes Forndom creates are more prevalent than ever, and from the first trembling string introduction of "Jakten" to the last wistful beat of "Hemkomst", one is transported to another time, another place, and another mindset, leaving behind the calamity, stress and superficiality of the modern world and finding anew the lost wisdom hidden by the veil of years passed. Who needs movies when you can listen to "Fa_ir"?

To sum up what this avant masterpiece is all about, here's what The Progressor said about the album back in 2015; "A stellar cast of musicians sees to it that Steensland's visions, that at least from a musical point of view are firmly placed on the dark and gloomy side of things, are brought to full life in a mesmerizing manner on A Farewell to Brains. A visionary production with material rather unlike much else you'll encounter, most certainly residing within the more challenging corners of the avant-garde progressive rock universe, a transfixing journey into realms rarely explored by others. Highly recommended, especially to those with a taste for music firmly placed on the dark and eerie side of life."

2020 release. Varde present, with the immense primordial forces of their native Norway coursing through it's veins, their debut full-length album Fedraminne. Raw yet sophisticated, Varde's channeling of ancestral memories is fuelled by their deep connection to the national romantic era, and is centered around traditional Norwegian poems from the 19th century. Varde's blackened metal is steeped in lingering folk melodies and ferocious metal riffing, and the passionate vocals echo the call of the wild Nordic nature. There's also a place for somber acoustics, ethereal saxophone leads and industrial beats on Fedraminne, boldly telling it's story with all means necessary. Instincts, visions and memories from their forefathers, passed down through the corridors of time, have inspired Varde to this timeless creation. Through Fedraminne, in more ways than one, the past is alive.

With this 2013 release, Netherbird have matured and deepened their distinctive sound, where the early scene influences and their respect for the '90s Black/Death underground become clearer than ever. As always, the band displays a solid and confident ability to combine ferocious music with high sense of melody. On this album harshness meets the fragile and subtle, and this symbiosis goes even further - closer to the Extreme Metal roots and at the same time more innovative than ever before, which rings especially evident in the epic piece "Along the Colonnades" full of Post-Metal echoes. It is a clear progression of the path the band set already in 2005 with it's first release and continued to develop on the follow-up records, still Netherbird stay faithful to their own musical formula which makes them recognizable on today's mercurial scene.

With the intense blastbeat-riffing combined with heavy and -for lack of better words- 'melodic dark' parts together with the aggressiveness of the vocals, the works just smashes through the listener, one after the other. Sensational and brilliant pieces of work (Art !)Vicious Art started up in 2002. Matti MÀkelÀ (Guitar) and Robert Lundin (Drums), who both used to be in Dark Funeral, was joined by long time friends and fellow-musicians Jocke Widfeldt (Vocals) (Dominion Caligula, Obscurity Sthlm) and Tobbe Sillman (Guitar) (Guidance of Sin, The dead). After a while Jocke felt 'tied up' handling both the vocals and the bass (you will understand why when you see him live) and so the band decided to start looking for a permanent bassplayer. In early 2004 the band finally got in touch with Jörgen Sandström (Grave, Entombed, Projet Hate MCMXCIX, Krux) and right from the start, during their first rehearsal together, everybody knew that this was going to be a classic collaboration. Not only did Jörgen bring great bass-playing and backing vocals, he also takes part in the songwriting which without a doubt contributes to making the music what it is: VICIOUS ART!!

OUR FAITHFUL CONGREGATION, "First Death of the Lutheran" represents the end of the insidious sinners' earthly serpentine path as their life ends and they pass on to face the Final Judgement of the Lord Almighty. No doubt in our minds that they will end up horrified by their fate. The Lutheran hypocrites have wasted their lives following their deceitful priests, blinded by their drivel. And these perverted wretches of the cloth have diluted the Word to serve their own greedy and lustful needs. May these priests be impaled by the claws of their true master, the accuser, Satan. And may the Lutheran churches fall in the name of the Lord Almighty, for they do not honour Him, but organised human evil. For His is the Glory now and eternally.

2017 release from the Swedish band. It is time for revolt. The pressures of social expectation are ours no more. We will not do as our fathers command, we will not be what our mothers wish and we will not fit into the mold that they made for us. We are the Firstborn and we will make our own destiny. The bible already sets the tone: God's wrath taking the Firstborn sons of Egypt and saving the Israelites' by the mark of sacrificial blood. Religion wielded as a weapon then as it is wielded now. Firstborn refuse this logic of sacrifice and strain against what they perceive as a means of control: "It is one of our key messages, that everyone will try to manipulate you with everything they got at their disposal. We want to fight that, resist that climate of demands and sacrifices. We want everyone to be able to be who they want to be!" Alternative rock band Firstborn are claiming this right for themselves, too.

2016 release. Imagine yourself by a campfire underneath the open sky, far away from the rattling of society. Nearby you notice a raven spreading its wings; croaking as it solemnly stares out across the surrounding landscape. As you turn you can hear a fox crying out in the distance, followed by what can be perceived as a drum beat derived from the earth itself. This is FLYKT, an escape from the world such as humanity has let it become - neglected and abused. With an enchanting splendor FLYKT takes us on a very down to earth yet intense musical journey, a ritual tribute to our Northern legacy and a time when people lived in harmony with nature and worshipped the Nordic gods. There is more to FLYKT than merely ambient tones that resonate with atmospheric soundscapes - it also serves as a reminder to us all to embrace our heritage; to bring back what has been lost and to cherish it until the very end.

"Fra en Vugge i Fjellet" - "from a cradle in the mountains" - is the second album of Norway's FEDRESPOR. It is the singular vision of sonic outdoorsman Varg Torden Saastad, from the outback of Telemark: an expression for nostalgia, the pain of rememberance, yet ever moving forward, draped in an air of timelessness. The sounds and timbres resounding through "Fra en Vugge i Fjellet" are a melange of archaic and contemporary instruments: from the primitive percussion of birchwood and chestnuts to digital synthesizers via traditional Norwegian horns, drums, harps and lyres, all flowing together into a poetic whole. The harmonies and techniques of Fedrespor hark back to diverse sources such as the pastoral hymns of Popol Vuh and Mike Oldfield, the magnificent fjellsynth of Ildjarn-Nidhogg, and the sombre and yearning pomp of the Neofolk genre, converging in a unity imbued in rustic, frostencased swathes of dreamlike nostalgia. The Janus-faced works of Fedrespor reminisce of the days of yore but also gazes forward, leading the project to higher grounds than your contemporary superficially Norse-themed ethno-ambient. "Fra en vugge i fjellet" is an evocative journey, not just through the northern wildernesses but into the forlorn wilderness of the heart and memories of humankind.

Fragments Of Silence

CD: $20.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $7.99 Download

2018 release. Sometimes all it takes is to be out there. In the misty, cold dark reality and be alone. A suburban street with impotent street lights failing to break through the spell of the fog. A city underpass with the pungent smell of urine the only reminder of other human existence. Or a windswept moor after midnight with owl's silently devouring rodents and foxes quietly careening past as you realize your own insignificance. In such situations, creative sparks are born and the sounds of the Earth reveal themselves. Herr K has clearly been listening, as Fragments Of Silence offers a portal into the eerie, yet unmistakably earthly void. Metamorphoses, was an homage to Kafka and while the bleakness of Fragments... tips a grey, tattered cap in the direction of the great man, it draws greater strength from our existential state and especially from the murky world of nightly dreams. "You are free, and that is why you are lost" Kafka reminds us. But listen closely and you will see yourself in Herr K's sonic mirror and remember that 'found and enslaved is no match for 'lost and free', especially in a world painted in such a stark, yet enchanting monochrome.

The lyrics are noticeably important to the band and in true Narnia spirit this heritage has been well managed and further refined.Christian Liljegren sings with such passion that it is hard not to be touched by the vocals.

The debut album "From the Depths" by Ravened is an experience of five young guys, pouring 100% of their hearts into 12 heavy tracks, which would attract both listeners interested in the technical aspect of music, as well as anyone who just loves great metal. Even though the band members are between 19-24 years old, the music has been a big part of their lives for generations. Olle Liljegren (guitars) are son to Simeon Liljegren (Modest Attraction, AudioVision), and nephew to Christian Liljegren (Narnia, The Waymaker, AudioVision, Divinefire, Golden Resurrection, etc.) and drummer Oliwer Svensson is son to Kent Svensson (Hellfueled). Ravened is all about really tight metalcore with heavy riffs, well-written lyrics, and a hunger and passion like few other bands in their age. From first introduction-track "The Path" and into "Foul Deeds" to closing title track "From the Depths", the band keeps the listener's interest. The guys put their hearts and minds into songs like "False Conjunction", with it's attitude, and the mighty "Personal Universe", featuring a church cantor, playing a grand church organ. The band was formed in 2018, and has just started their journey towards an exciting future. This is where it all starts!

Strongly rooted in the late '80s tradition, but still managing to sound fresh and potent! Inspired by both the Teutonic black/thrash/speed sound of countrymen Desaster and Hellish Crossfire and the more death thrash-ier ditto of Possessed and Pentacle. Gathering Of The Insane is bound to go down well among traditionalist metal maniacs and people turning their back towards polished mainstream sounding abominations that flourish everywhere. Concept-wise, Gathering Of The Insane deals with the darkest and most macabre sides of the human nature; "True Crime" is on offer here. JT RIPPER finishes off 2018 in the most sick and twisted way. Let cult and chaos reign!

Ghost Collector

CD: $20.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

Digitally remastered edition of the first full-length Netherbird album, when it came out in 2008, was well received by the media and attracted a large group of fans. Due to the production being pretty heavy on keyboards and gothic elements, the band quickly gained popularity among the appreciators of gothic-influenced extreme- and sympho-black metal. The Ghost Collector is a promise of something grand and ambitious, it is a clear proof that Netherbird were always a band with a bigger vision; and it paves a solid path to the success of their recent, more atmospheric records. This album is an inspired complex venture, combining both the earliest tunes written by Netherbird co-founder Grim and songs created by the band's main composer Bizmark between 2004 and 2008, with vocalist Nephente's profound and imaginative lyrics crowning them. A massive guild of guest musicians that took part on the recording sessions adds to the versatility of instrumentation and stylistic diversity of the record.

REDLINE hail from Birmingham, the ancestral home of metal. Balls to the walls guitars, a locked and loaded rhythm section and a real powerhouse of a vocalist, REDLINE have forged their own distinctive blend of Classic Hard Rock and British Heavy Metal. With influences drawn from a rich heritage, the band have been compared to Judas Priest, Saxon, Dio, Iron Maiden and a host of others from the founding fathers of metal.REDLINE have played a number of British festivals including Hard Rock Hell, Planet Rockstock, Planet Rock's Winter's End, and Europe's biggest free festival, The Godiva Festival in England. REDLINE have previously toured the UK with the legendary Saxon and the QuireboysREDLINE's album 'VICE', released on Escape Music (worldwide) and Rubicon Records in Japan met with much critical acclaim. One of the tracks featured is REDLINE'S anthemic "King Of The Mountain", which has become the soundtrack to the Isle Of Man TT Motorcycle Races.Music from the album is also used exclusively on 'Full Throttle', a challenging motorcycle theme'd Pinball Machine... and songs will now feature on the new official video game of the IOM TT Races to be released in 2020 on PS4 and all formats by BigBen Interactive.Since releasing VICE, REDLINE have welcomed Chris Basener, an accomplished and exciting new guitarist, into the band. Chris has released a number of solo albums as well as authoring books on guitar technique and brings fresh impetus to the song writing process. REDLINE have found a great chemistry that sees them writing material that has a darker and heavier feel than before... and from this cauldron Gods And Monsters was born.REDLINE elected to record the album at ROCKFIELD STUDIOS in Monmouth, England. The world's first residential recording studio that saw not only Rush, Black Sabbath and Robert Plant record hit albums, but where Queen recorded one of the biggest tracks of all time, Bohemian Rhapsody.Nick Brine at the console was a natural choice. Having worked at Rockfield and engineered, mixed and produced such diverse talents as The Darkness, Thunder, Tyketto, Brian May, Bruce Springsteen, The Stone Roses... to name but a few, Nick has a great understanding of capturing that live band feel that REDLINE were seeking. The finished mixes were passed onto Pete Maher, a world class Mastering Engineer for the likes of The Rolling Stones, U2, Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, Thunder, Paul Weller... just some of the artists he has mastered award winning albums for; REDLINE naturally had no doubt that Pete's mastering would unleash the full power of the tracks.REDLINE's Rockfield pilgrimage set out to capture the band's signature classic rock sound, a raw energy that forms the basis of their music. Riff laden rock, power-pipe vocals and hook laden songs telling tales of the good... and the bad, of the darkness that lies within, and of hope that lights the way.Gods And Monsters... now about to land and blaze a trail for the next chapter of Redline... torchbearers for a new wave of Classic Rock and Metal.

2020 release. Ignitor, the titans of Texas true metal, return with their scorchingly wicked slasherpiece The Golden Age of Black Magick, their seventh studio album. They offer eight newly forged ruthless metal anthems that harken back to the glory days of unrelenting fist-pumping, head-banging, screaming heavy metal electricity, so thick you'll have to cut it with a chainsaw. Strong song structures with dynamic tempo shifts, catchy, rampaging riffs and melodies that will stay in your head for days on end. It's not your typical US power. You can hear nods to NWOBHM and the British tradition in double guitar leads, but the band has a dark edge and sometimes also ventures into epic metal territory. Jason McMaster's distinct vocals with high-pitched timbre are aggressive and unpolished, just like the music. This high-energy, intensely passionate and authentic slab of metal is not to be missed by the fans of Attacker, Dio, Riot, Skullview, Aska, Cage, Rainbow, Iron Maiden, Phantom-X, Jag Panzer, Saxon and Judas Priest!

2017 release. In recent years, Three Seasons have made themselves known as one of the most exciting acts on the psychedelic blues rock scene. The band's earlier work has been built on atmospheric melodies, intricate arrangements, and has often included musicians on Hammond organ or traditional Swedish folk music instruments. Their three albums have been celebrated by fans and media alike, resulting in several sold-out records, top placements on the charts, ecstatic reviews, and Album of the Year awards. But while this approach has undeniably been successful, the band is not content just staying the same. Things change, and rather than living on past achievements, this Three Seasons album constitutes a renewal of the band's sound. The music has moved towards that of a hard-hitting, right-in-your-face power trio, and although the influences from the good old days are still clear, they take a whole new shape in the band's recent work. Sartez Faraj (lead vocals, guitar) and Olle Risberg (bass) have been joined by hugely experienced drummer Thomas Broman (ex. Glenn Hughes, John Norum, Michael Schenker etc.), and the band is now releasing Things Change.

ROCKETT LOVE was founded in 2015 by singer Daniel Samuelsson and guitarist Stefan Westerlund. Fueled by mutual interest in 80's melodic rock, the two began recording original material in Daniel's home studio. With only one song on iTunes and Spotify and absolutely no commercial back-up they received a lot of radio time and a fully packed venue when playing their debut gig. The song "Rocket Love" took off with a big viral spin when Beau Hill picked-up the track at his studio and produced it. A year of writing and recording went by and in 2017 ROCKETT LOVE finally released the full-length debut "Grab the Rocket" on AOR Heaven. In the following time, they set up their own studio and named it Meganoise, and the recordings began in early 2018. The duo needed to cut down the material from twenty something to 11 songs. When the recordings were finished, the Swedes sent the material to Erik MĂ„rtensson (ECLIPSE, WET) to mix it. ROCKETT LOVE now returns with "Greetings from Rocketland" on August 30th, 2019. The band's second album contains 11 new tracks including the highlights "King for one day", "Back on my feet" and the power ballad "Take me home". Stefan Westerlund comments: "This time the songs are for real, no compromises. Erik has done a fantastic job and we feel strongly about the album and what he did to the material. Now it's up to the listeners to take it to their hearts. "Greetings From Rocketland" is a classic record full of great and melodic rock songs."

Founder Jari Kuusisto says; "I quit Carnal Forge after the last full-length album Testify for my victims because I was just feed up with the music industry and everything about being in the band. It took some years but I felt I was kind of missing CF, so I talked to my brother Petri and I called up Lars in 2013 and said. Hey, let's fuckin' do it! He had been waiting since the hibernation in 2010 so it was a Go! Right on the spot. We made this mini CD to wake up the corpse and we did some shows but then we decided to not do any more shows until we had a new album and new fresh songs to play. It's a long boring story why it took so long time, but finally here we are now, ready to kick som serious ass again! And with us we also have Lawrence Dinamarca (Nightrage, Loch Vostok) and new vocalist Tommie Wahlberg." The Swedish thrash quintet Carnal Forge was formed by guitarist Jari Kuusisto in 1997 in Sala, Sweden.

2018 release. Eitr is the new brainchild of Nachtzeit, the man behind ambient dark metal project Lustre. Representing the first recording of this new adventure, HÀdanfÀrden takes us back to the time of the Norse gods and the death of Balder, masterminded by the ever-devious Loki. As the waves of mischievous, playful synth wash over our senses we are transported to Asgard and any misgivings over the potential of an album without lyrics to tell a story are dispelled. Are we now Loki or merely observers in his game of trickery and cunning? HÀdanfÀrden could just be the album we all wished Daudi Baldrs could have been. We take the form of the old woman with Loki as he tricks Friggr into telling him the one substance that can harm Balder. We feel the breeze and air of expectation as he strides with the branch of the little mistletoe bush back to the hall in Galdsheim. The contrast between the air of joviality of the masses and the dark, conniving nature of Loki is tangible and the theatre of it all captured in simple sonic form. There is ancient magic at play here, no doubt. The spirit of the Norse gods and their tales is alive and well in Eitr's softly lilting music - lulling us, a la Loki into a false sense of peace and security. All the while Balder is imprisoned by Hel, aided by the cave-dwelling giantess Thokk, or should we say... Loki.

Unique is a word often attributed to music but none so truly realized as when attached to Sweden-based The Project Hate MCMXCIX. On their third studio album, this dual-vocalist (one male/one female) electronic-come-blackened death metal band have written an album of incredible quality and compositions that will surely stand out amongst the year's new releases. Recorded at Soundlab Studios, "Hate, Dominate, Congregate, Eliminate" was produced by Mieszko A. Talarczyk (Nasum) & Lord K. Philipson. Clocking in at over 70-minutes (the album's shortest player at 7.5 minutes!), it is a behemoth of a recording that is dark, penetrating and invoking from the get-go. Formed in 1999, The Project Hate MCMXCIX is Lord K. Philipson's musical vision of perfection. And to enhance said vision a lot of different people are brought in with each and every album, all adding their own unique touch to the album(s) they are on.

In The Colonnades was a Swedish quintet with roots in punk and early 70's metal. They ignated the Swedish rock scene for years with their uncompromised rock. A cynical noisy wall of sound.

Back in the year that President Kennedy was assassinated and the Beatles first song entered the UK charts, Mick Devine was born in Bulawayo, Southern Rhodesia. Music was always an important part of the Devine family life with his Dad a semi-professional drummer and frequent late night band rehearsals in the home, proved a source of inspiration to the impressionable Mick.He always had a good singing voice and from a young age was singled out to perform, with impromptu solo school performances through a number of choirs and school bands, the desire to be a professional musician was growing.Roll on through the teenage years and Mick has moved from the now Zimbabwe to start a new life in Johannesburg South Africa. He was playing in a local band UC27 as a drummer / singer when he met Keith McFarlane from the award winning South African pop group Face to Face who at the time were planning a move to the UK to further their music careers. Mick was invited to join the band as a drummer and Seven was born.In the UK as the band developed, it was agreed that Mick was a much better singer than drummer and he needed to come out from behind the drums to be the lead singer. Mick's first performance as a frontman was at a showcase for CBS Records in London in front of the A&R guru Muff Winwood. Unfortunately no record deal followed.Shortly afterwards the band secured a support slot on their first nationwide tour with 90's pop group Brother Beyond where valuable live experience, and a sizeable fan base were earned. It attracted the attention of Phillip Schofield who at the time was a Radio 1 DJ, and started to play their demo's on his show. Whilst on this tour, the wife of the head of Polydor Records came to one of the shows and the story goes that she went home and told her husband that he needed to sign the band. Whether true or not a record deal was offered and signed. This would prove to be the undoing of Seven, as for many years they had been crafting their sound very much in an AOR rock vein and had a number of really credible recordings and tracks. This was around the time when Soul to Soul burst on the scene and the AOR sound was becoming a little out of fashion in the UK. The band had a real 'Boy Band' image and their management and record label pushed them in that direction with the hope that it would break them into a larger market. John Parr was secured to produce the bands two single EP's, both of which achieved top 75-chart status and further tours supporting The Monkey's, Jason Donavan and Richard Marx followed. But as with so many bands without major chart success, the record label dropped them before an album was recorded.Fast forward through 25 years of bringing up a family and earning a living, to a chance conversation between Khalil Turk (Escape Records) and Pat Davey, the original Seven bass player which led to an offer to finally record the Seven album that should have been released in the 90's. Sevens first album '7' was released to critical acclaim and was followed two years later with a second album 'Shattered', an album of newly written original tracks that was equally well received.

They were after a bass player, but since Risto came along, Gekko took the bass guitar. A hard rock band 'Villa Sucka' was formed. They wrote songs actively and recorded an EP during the spring of 2010. In the same year, Risto got recruited to a melodic rock/AOR band 'Human Temple'. Gekko soon followed him. In those times, Jori 'Jorge' Tojander was the keyboard player of Human Temple.

2020 release from the German metal band. Not even a year after the first sign of life, the German maniac from Vomit Division releases the first full-length titled "Hell in a Bottle", unleashing a black/thrash pandemonium, pushier than before, especially noticeable in the lyrics. Loaded with more ripping riffs, fresh and unpredictable songwriting, quite diverse vocals and solid guitar solos, the album takes some unexpected turns while never losing the key aggression this project inherits. It's full of demented belligerence, hurtful honesty, pure abhorrence, arrogance and a stolid FUCK OFF attitude. More black metal than MIDNIGHT, more rock'n'roll than DESASTER.

2017 release. The Ritualist is Chad Davis (Hour Of 13) and stands for the ways of the old, the ways of the lifestyle of the children of doom, and for the return of quality music to hold up the standards of the ideals expressed within the music itself. The Ritualist strive to bring back the unity felt in this lifestyle just some few years ago, and to dignify all of those that are active and present and still continuing to wield their craft into a true purpose. It is quite apparent in listening to The Ritualist that the pre-sence of the beginnings are all there, tinged in the 4th and 5th album era of Bathory and the bone crushing heaviness of the early days of Nemesis/Candlemass. But before getting those sounds implanted in your skulls, rest assured that the sound created within The Ritualist is in no way showcasing these influences, rather it takes the ideals and moves them forward into this day and age without copying anything.

Intricate and unruly, switching between grandiosity and self-hate in an attempt to compose the soundtrack to the chaotic and often unpleasant human existence.

C.B Murdoc is a four piece band based in Stockholm, Sweden which music is described easiest as hardcore metal with a sour twist of death. The origin of the band goes back to 2005 and the disbanding of black metal act Mörk Gryning from which Johan Ljung, Johan Larsson, C-G BÀckström, Henrik Hedberg and Fredrik Boëthius FjÀrem formed the new constellation and decided to develop in a different direction.

On a summer's day 1978, bass player Lars-Åke loaded his amp and speaker onto his bicycle trailer, heading for the first meeting and rehearsal with guitarist Åke and drummer Anders. This was the start of Keen Hue. At that time the band was exclusively playing covers from bands such as HURRIGANES and RAMONES. Three years later, the second guitarist Stefan and new drummer Peter joined the band. At this point they started to write their own music, influenced by acts like JUDAS PRIEST and BLACK SABBATH. As they were living in the same little village, the band was rehearsing almost everyday in the basement of Stefan's parents' house. When his mother started popping pills and his father's hair turned white, they changed location. Next stop, Peter's parents' house. Still rehearsing and gigging local venues, in the autumn of 1982, Keen Hue also recorded and released their first 2-track single ("Spread Your Wings Of Fire/One Of Two"). The boys paid for it themselves and 500 copies were made. Another three years later, 1985, English record label Ebony Records signed the band for an LP. After the release of that album ("Ogre King"), the band had a good response from all over Europe and several countries around the world. Shortly thereafter, the band recruited bass player Kent so that Lars-Åke could focus on his vocals. The following years they did some touring in Sweden and in 1989 the singer Lars-Åke left Keen Hue. After finding another frontman the band kept on writing songs and then released a CD in 1993 ("Juicy Fruit Lucy"). In the years to come, members changed but Stefan and Kent were still in the band, playing a lot, now under the name Keen Hue-UNDER COVER.

With members from bands like Constancia, The Poodles, Token, Narnia and Essence of Sorrow, and with guest stars Nina Söderquist (Bjorn Skifs/Badrock, Champions of Rock a.o.), Janne Stark (Grand Design, Mountain of Power a.o.), and TÄve Wanning (The Voice, Adrenaline Rush, Peaches), melodic hard rockers Heartwind may come across as one of those one off band projects, but nothing could be more far from the truth. Heartwind is the story of two old friends, with a common love for classical melodic hard rock and AOR, that after fifteen years of friendship started to write the album they always had wanted to listen to themselves. Over a meal in downtown Stockholm, guitar player and songwriter Goran Engvall (former with Hitworks) and progressive/melodic keyboard player and fellow songwriter Mikael Rosengren (Constancia, Token, Scudiero), laid down the vision for what was yet to come. 15 original songs and 12 months later, Mikael started to pull some strings from his many fellow musicians in the Swedish hard rock scene since 20 years back. The two songwriters were amazed with the positive response they got on their first demos, from hard rock industry people & fans. It became evident that they were going to be able to attract some great talent to the album and the band. Believing in the importance of fellowship and a strong people fit when starting a band, Mikael and Göran started to dig in closest ground: Drummer Peter TrumPeter Svensson (Constancia, Faith) and singer Germån Pascual (Narnia, DJ Mendez, Essence of Sorrow), happily joined the band, and two key pieces of the puzzle came into place. With Peter and Germån onboard, the band knew they had both a powerful backbone and a phenomenal front man in place!

Grid's Human Collapse Syndrome is as intense as it gets. It's blasts in a hyper intense speed with screeching guitars, disjointed and angry vocals alongside the unbridled fury of hardcore drum beats. If you're not already a fan of grindcore, you're not likely to get much out of this album. It's a hail of noise with occasional hooky moments such as the ending to Sluta Grat when the intensity drops to allow a bit more rhythm and clarity. Music like this works best when it's short with quick blasts to the head. Human Collapse Syndrome delivers that with the 28 second title track that looks to rip your brain out via your ears. However there are some longer tracks that focus on a more guttural vocal style. Fooled, in particular, coming at the end of the disc is a harsh sounding piece of grinding metal. It's got some meaty riffs that have a more methodical pace, far easier to pick out and far more enjoyable. Human Collapse Syndrome finishes on the high-energy Out Of Air, an absolutely furious smashing of instruments. The aggression here is unmatched by anything heard so far, an ending that puts the exclamation point on a hell of statement. If you want to clean up your head then don't look any further. The Swedish grindcore act Grid will do this for you. 2017 release from the Swedish grindcore band.

He began writing songs and formed the Rock band 'Sahara' whilst spending any spare time attending a gazzillion gigs at the Legendary 'Glasgow Apollo' till it closed in 1985. Various incarnations of the band ensued including a name change to "The Hardline" until they were picked-up by 'Wet Wet Wet's manager Elliott Davis and offered a management contract on the strength of a demo tape. Showcasing his phenomenal voice, 5 years of recording demo's, touring, notable sell out gigs at Glasgow's King Tut's, London's 'Borderline Club' and a support to Wet Wet Wet in front of 30,000 people at Glasgow Green followed.

2016 release from the German metal band. The high flyers from Regensburg impress with their very own, innovative style of music: Complex arrangements and progressive song structures meeting with brute force, an enormous portion of groove - and some really catchy hooks. Established in 2004, Burden Of Life have long since made a name for themselves throughout the German metal scene with their strikingly versatile sound. Their third studio album In Cycles represents Burden Of Life's definite liberation from any straitjacket in terms of music. The elaborate harmonies in their sensual duet "Amour Fou", the nightmarish up-tempo-insanity of "Kafkaesque" or the virtuosic richness of the 12-minute-long sledgehammer "At The Heart Of Infinity" - these four guys' creativity seems virtually limitless. Thereby, each of the album's eight songs tells its own story. The spread of issues reaches from the principle of retributive justice in the title track, over a ghost train ride through one's own fears, to the surreal intermediate world of a patient in a vigil coma. Multi-facetted, dynamic and packed with loopings - In Cycles kills.

The music combines elements from heavy and melodic space rock to epic/Prog metal. It has more focus on delivering fine crafted tunes but not forgetting initial space rock fundament. Artwork is once again created by Kevin Sommers.

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2018 release. Atlas is a melodic rock band from the North of England. Keyboard player James Thorley founded the band in early 2017 with the intention to create a band that centered it's roots around the AOR and melodic rock genre whilst delving into other areas of hard rock, metal, progressive and even jazz. Five keyboard demos were produced by Thorley during the first few months of 2017. The name Atlas came from the working title for these demos, which would soon be molded into the songs heard on the bands' debut EP World In Motion. Atlas drew heavily on influences stemming from the AOR classic standards of Toto and Journey to the modern era of Work of Art and W.E.T with subtle progressive elements of Dream Theater mixed in to forge the early sound heard throughout their EP. The end of 2017 found the band achieve three awards from AOR Underground (A feature of Powerplay magazine) for 'Independent album of year 2017' for their release of the EP 'World in Motion', 'Best Newcomer of 2017' and 'Song of the year' with 'Lost in The Moment'. This momentum and growing social media following provided the stepping-stone for the bands next endeavor. With strong motivation and after almost a year of working together as a band they now release In Pursuit Of Memory.

Target was an exciting US Quintet from Memphis that featured the legendary Jimi Jameson (Cobra/Survivor) on vocals. They released two albums on A & M in 1976 (Target) and 1977 (Captured). However, it has come to light that a third album was recorded in 1979, entitled In Range before the band split in 1982. While vocalist Jimi Jamison did go on to greater heights - thanks to his stints fronting Cobra and, of course, Survivor not to mention releasing an impressive catalog of solo records - Target were the band with whom he first made the progression from playing the bars and clubs to touring as a major label act opening for the likes of Black Sabbath and Styx.

2018 release. Hailing from Malmö, Sweden, four piece thrash metal unit Dead Sleep have finally released their debut album In the Belly of the Beast on Denomination Records. The album contains 10 tracks of raging energy, addictive hooks and uncompromising lyrics. Dead Sleep forge their special brand of music in between the chaotic aggression of hardcore punk and the bombast of metal. Their sound picks the best from both old and new, falling into a strong tradition of '80ss thrash metal while infusing it with a contemporary feel. Homage is paid to the NWOBHM legacy and there may be nods at black and death metal, but the core lies firmly in classic thrash, with strong guitar riffs at the center, relentlessly propelling the tunes forward.

2017 release. Eneferens will be typecast as atmospheric black metal protagonists, but theirs is a more complex, nuanced style that embraces not only the epic, Cascadian fare that Wolves in the Throne Room pioneered, but also at times the mournful, heart on the sleeve doom that Patrick Walker has made his own, via Warning and 40 Watt Sun. Guitar lines crush, shimmer and tease in equal measure, while it is scarcely believable that all of the voices, ethereal, growled and haunted originate from the throat of sole protagonist Jori Apedaile - who also plays every instrument on the album. Eneferens exist in a realm where sun-beaten deserts and white hot alabaster above give way to frostbitten tundra, in the hours beneath. Theirs is a music of contrasts, with heart-breaking beauty sandwiched between melody and the harsh, ominous sounds of a world in ruins. Take the trip through the white and follow the path to ascension. Climb the black mountain and find refuge - stark, ominous, tranquil and cacophonous: Eneferens.

Expanded two CD set. Influenced by the likes of Saint Vitus, Candlemass, Pentagram, Witchfinder General, Trouble, and (old) Black Sabbath, the roots of Dawn of Winter stretch back to the very early '90s, and their dream of playing pure and honest doom metal has not waned or changed in the slightest since then. A string of demo releases and an EP eventually led to the debut album In the Valley of Tears in 1998. This long out of print album is now re-released by I Hate as a deluxe digipak. Disc 1 features the full-length, In the Valley of Tears. Disc 2 consists of recordings never before released on CD including the pre-album demo tape In Servitude to Destiny (1996), and the two 12" EP's, Slow Is the Suffering (2001) and The Skull of the Sorcerer (2012). Almost two hours' worth of superbly crafted and passionately expressed doom metal from the German underground! No frills, no fads, no gimmicks, no asinine image! This is true doom the way it's meant to sound. A formula enduring in the hearts of real genre fans until the end of days.

Precision and prog metal: the two go hand in hand - especially in Switzerland, home to clockworks and quality craftsmanship.True to that national spirit, Appearance Of Nothing are stepping right into the tradition of outstanding and unique metal, Made In Switzerland (ever heard of Coroner, Eluveitie, or perhaps Celtic Frost?). Honing their skills together since 2004, the band around founding members Marc Petralito (piano, hammond, synths) and Omar Cuna (bass & vocals), along with shredders Manuel Meinen & Albert Ibrahimaj and drummer Ronnie Wolf, have always felt true to Prog with a capital letter - think Opeth, Dream Theater, or Symphony X.With their new single 'Storm' they mark an explosive return after parting ways with their former lead singer in 2017. Keys blazing, the creative driving force Marc proudly places his giant synth walls right where they should be: front and center. The newest family members Albert Ibrahimaj (two-time winner of a prestigious Berklee College of Music scholarship) and Manuel Meinen - both acclaimed guitar teachers - have found themselves right at home, driving the band's sound forward along with Ronnie, who has been making a name for himself for over 30 years ever since his work on the legendary 1985 album 'Young Blood' by Killer. Omar, finally, having already made the unusual transition from dancer to bass player early in his career, showcases how he inherited the position of main vocalist and frontman without skipping a note on his bass.A new album has been completed as well, although the band remain shrouded regarding a potential release date. They can, however, announce some explosive details already: the record has been recorded and produced with none other than the undisputed queen of Swiss metal, Anna Murphy (Cellar Darling, ex-Eluveitie) at Soundfarm Studios, has been mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Leprous, Symphony X & more), and features illustrious guest performers including Anna Murphy herself, cello virtuoso Tina Guo (Hans Zimmer, 'Wonder Woman' soundtrack), Devon Graves of the legendary Psychotic Waltz, and former Scar Symmetry vocalist Christian Älvestam. Last, but not least, Appearance of Nothing's new guitar sound was created at Swiss guitar legend Tommy Vetterli's New Sound Studio.

Code Red

Incendiary

CD: $28.98 Buy

MP3 Album: $9.99 Download

2017 release. Lead singer Ulrick Lönnqvist initially started out with the band Sahara who released a self-titled album in 2001 on AOR Heaven. Since then he has mainly been working as a song-writer and co-writer for different bands all around Sweden, i.e. with Hal Marabel (Bad Habit), Morgan Jensen (Swedish Erotica), Jake E (Amaranthe), Michael Palace (Palace) and Andreas Gullstrand (Creye) to name a few. So the seed to the new project and band Code Red was planted many years ago in fact, when colleagues and partners became close friends. During 2016 while Lönnqvist was co-writing songs for the new albums with Jim Jidhed, Creye, Mad Invasion and Find Me, producer Daniel Flores (The Murder Of My Sweet, Find Me) approached him and suggested that he really should record an album of his own. It was never Lönnqvist's ambition to be a solo artist, but Flores convinced him and wanted to produce the album. The singer teamed up with co-writers Morgan Jensen (Swedish Erotica) and Michael Palace (Palace, Big Time), and along with lead guitarist Oscar Bromvall (Palace, Erika) and keyboard player Kaspar Dahlqvist (Shadowquest, Dionysus) the line-up was complete. Code Red was born. It felt like a natural step to approach Georg Siegl at AOR Heaven, and he believed in the songs and Code Red right from the start. The band recorded their debut album during the spring of 2017 at Sound vs. Science in Stockholm under the direction of producer Daniel Flores and Ulrick Lönnqvist. It was a pure labor of love, resulting in the melodic rock album titled Incendiary.

2017 release. What is beyond the horizon? All Will Know have a clear vision: innovative and contemporary melodic metal! The six guys from Darmstadt blend their sound with a good dash of old school attitude and electronic influences. The recipe works: more than a hundred shows and festivals played since 2010, as well as gigs in Spain, Poland, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Switzerland (i.a. with Amorphis, Xandria, Debauchery or Emil Bulls) bear witness to the intoxicating impact of this musical tonic that regularly merges the band and their fans into a wildly partying unity. And with Contact (2012) and Deeper Into Time (2015), All Will Know are already looking back on two successful album releases. With their third studio album Infinitas, All Will Know are proving once more that the source of their creativity is still sputtering without restraint. Accompanied by gentle orchestral sounds, the sextet navigates the listener deep into the infinite soundscapes of the new oeuvre, until mighty swells of melo-death pool forces with roaring riffs, stormy beats and electronic currents to form a sonic typhoon, that will cast them far out onto an ocean of power and melody. In twelve new tracks, All Will Know explore progressive passages, multilayered vocal harmonies and are carried to new shores by artful rhythms and virtuosic solos, while singer Frank Richter's dynamic vocals vary between the low, gurgling sound of a furiously raging wave and the pure, clear fade away of a soft sea breeze. And for the finale: An unplugged reggae version of "Deeper Into Time"!

2017 release. Groove and death metal thrashers Magnacult formed in 2005, bringing together a unique group of musicians from across the Netherlands: vocalist Seb, guitarists Tomas and David, bassist Stan and drummer Bionic. With their third album, Infinitum, Magnacult have nailed their music style, shifting up a gear to an epic release packed with massive guitar solos and full of groove. The birth of their new masterpiece has been challenging; personal issues and set-backs have been channeled into a force that has brought the band closer to each other. The result is a crushing new album featuring ten powerful, meaningful songs. There are two guest vocalists on the new album, giving it a new depth. "We asked Alma from For I Am King to add her brutal voice to the song 'Righteous Murder'," says David. "The song is about how people can have such intense and disastrous experiences with others that they are deprived of who they could actually become in this life." Theresa Smith from Metaprism provides vocals for the track 'Holy-um', which is about the religious indoctrination gripping the world today.
