Cult Of Osiris is a relatively young label from Leeds (in the U.K.), focusing on digital releases with a harsh character. On their roster, you can find acts like Apothecary, Wintercrown or Uten Håp (for which I published a review a while ago). The net-label also released / releases several compilations with some of the better bands or projects floating on our globe. This review will deal with ‘one’ of those.

The young Russian label Distorted Void has a small yet very interesting roster. It houses material by acts like Psionic Asylum, Onasander, Hiemal and Uzbazur, and they did compose and release some very attractive compilations too. I recently wrote a review for the first Forgotten, Abandoned, Desolated compilation, and this review deals with another compiled sampler, consisting by thirteen pieces by as much projects from all over our globe.

I admit that the ‘Western Worlds’ do have a lot to offer when it comes to (Dark) Ambient and Drone material. But the ‘real’ followers of the scene cannot but recognize the superiority of the East-European / Russian scene too. It would be too stupid to sum up all those great projects at the one hand, or influential labels at the other, but to my opinion the scene ‘out there’ deserves much more support, promotion and attention.

Iran… Known for its repressive government, Shiite-religious fundamentalism, millennia-old Persian civilization (more than 2,500 years of culture, including a huge heritage of historical remnants – praise and respect!), beautiful women (these women have the most beautiful eyes in the world), tasteful ab kusht, even a successful wrestling team and a fabulous, undeniably attractive anti-appreciation for our Earth’s newest Caesar, Mister Donald T... But when it comes to Music, well, that might seem quite limited, even narrow-minded, in our western countries.

We must ponder, cogitate, muse on the dual ideas on truth. ‘Which choice holds the right opinion?’ Are we able to think for ourselves, to make our own choices based on what we think that is right or wrong? Are our thoughts and ideas constructed in our Inner Self as being part of a greater concept? Is having an opposite opinion good or wrong? And what is a good or wrong opinion on certain matters? ‘Differences of opinion do not make anyone heretical or orthodox.

After Russian Death Metal and Russian Death Metal vol. 2, we can finally enjoy Russian Death Metal vol. 3, indeed the third volume with nothing but Russian Death Metal. I guess the smartest ones amongst you were aware of that; but just to make sure you’re perfectly informed, it’s my pleasure to make sure you’re with me… You’re welcome…
