Immortal Frost Productions is known especially for the many releases on compact disc, yet as from a couple of years ago, though quite modest, the label also released some material on vinyl. It all started with a split 12” EP in very early 2015, gathering Finland’s finest Azaghal and Belgian act Ars Veneficium, which involves label owner S. Now the label comes up with the tenth vinyl release, which is once again a split that includes Ars Veneficium.
Phil Illsley used to be the lead vocalist in Lordaeron for several years, and he’s involved with bands such as Taken By The Tide or Death Tripper too. But as A|V, he recently started the project Abduction. This solo-outfit is modestly productive, for Abduction recently released a new full-length album, the third one in nearly two years. The working title of that recording is All Pain Is Penance.
For sure being one of my favourite bands from the Middle-East, From The Vastland actually hail from Iran, although band leader Sina lives in Norway nowadays. The guy started this outfit in 2010 and throughout almost a decade of existence, he wrote and recorded some very nice stuff. From The Vastland debuted in 2011 with Darkness Vs.
It is a very sympathetic thing to do, dearest Aleksey, to celebrate you 200thSatanath Records release by means of Panchrysia. Good idea, respect, haha!
I remember being extremely happy – no, I’ll start all over again. Happiness has been disbanded, banished from my personal mental sanity. So, here it is… I remember being extremely aroused when I heard the album Hexkonst by Finnish horde Ondfødt more than four years ago. I received the album from Immortal Frost Productions’ chieftain S., and this very same guy / label takes care of the release of sophomore full length Dödsrikets Kallelse.
Once in a while, you just get blown away by a (new) release that offers something unique, promising, magnificent. Well, did you have the opportunity to enjoy Tacent Semitae, the 2016 debut by international act Adaestuo? Indeed, that’s what I mean with getting blown away. It isn’t just Black Metal that this trio performs. This goes way beyond the ‘orthodox’ borders of that mighty muSICKal style called Black Metal!
20 years in mean time, this Dutch Thrash band has climbed up to the highest regions of the international scene. Now, finally, after several years of silence, they return with their fifth full length, The Ferryman’s End, once again via France’s Listenable Records. It got recorded at the famous Soundlodge Studio and lasts for forty-two minutes (I know, a very short introduction, but since their ‘popularity’, you will find everything you want to know on the net).
This release is a split in between two projects that wander within the darkest netherworlds of occultism. The material gets released both digitally as on compact disc, be it in three different - and strongly limited, so hurry - editions. One of them even includes a t-shirt!
What will the stars tell us?…
Introduction, part one …
Stijn Van Cauter is a very sympathetic guy, but he’s also a talented musician. I adore about all acts he’s involved with – some more than others, yet I think he’s a notoriety within the worldwide (Funeral-oriented) Doom scene. Some names: Until Death Overtakes Me, Inframonolithium, Beyond Black Void, The Sad Sun – enfin, I can sum up two hands full of projects (often solo) that I like, seen from aural point of view.
I admit that I had not heard of Zohamah before. Apparently it is an outfit by Hezi Menashe, whom you might know from his collaboration with Folk / Pagan band Romuvos or Death Metal act Spawn Of Evil.
