EP

Brahmastrika

Our dear friends from Brahmastrika return with a new EP, easily called Abhabaniyastral Samsarimplication (if you can spit this title out for five times without hesitating, I’ll give you a well-deserved thumbs-up). Okay, we do not expect to have a new release with a simplistic title by this India-based act, seen their former one being called Excarnastrial Commencination (this demonstrational recording, by the way, has been re-released via the band’s current label and might be reviewed too by undersigned in some near future).

Funeral For Two

May the fuzz be with you… Funeral For Two are a Finnish act that did surprise me enormously last year with their debut-EP. Due to circumstances, I did not have the time or energy to write a review on that material. Maybe I will, in the future. Yet it does deal with intriguing stuff for sure!...

Alcahest

Alcahest are a new outfit from French soil, a mysterious duo consisting of the (human?) beings M (who wrote and performed all instrumental contributions) and J (lyrics and voices, and arrangements). The duo finished a first mini-album in Spring 2021, with Drakkar Productions taking care of this four-track EP.

Pus

Pus are an act from Peru. Okay, that’s enough for an introduction…

No, seriously, I did not know this band and I have about no further information about this act. I think they’re quite new, for this must be their first release (at least, when focusing on their BC-page). It’s a quartet consisting of Parasito, Nauseo, Porfi4do and FXTXZMX, hailing from the capital city of Lima.

Baalberith

There are several bands called ‘baalberith’, named after a demongod, an entity also known as Ba’al Berith and closely related to El Berith (sort of spiritual ‘twins’). I am not going to write down an essay on this grand duke; I guess the internet, and the Old Testament, might satisfy your quest for knowledge.

Promise Down

My first acquaintance with Antwerp (Belgium) based act Promise Down was via the first volume of the Sounds Of Hell Series (a magnificent compilation series focusing on the scene from the Benelux). I was quite surprised by their contribution Furious Masturbation (part of this EP, so I will surely come back to this specific track soon), and suddenly – don’t ask me why, or how – I got their debut EP in my hands. It’s a five-piece mini-album that – nope, I’ll come to that back soon too.

Lůn

Warning: there is a huge dose of feminism going on when talking about the French project Lůn, but it has to do with the female force as a vital part of Mater Terra’s evolution, as goddesses of Human Life, rather than with some anti-male statement. Phew…

Atra Vetosus

To celebrate their tenth anniversary, Atra Vetosus satisfies its audience with the release of a new recording, happily called Even The Dawn No Longer Brings Hope. I’ll keep my introduction brief, for you can find more background information in my former reviews for this act from Tasmania (links: see below). Atra Vetosus were originally formed in 2011 by the Josh-duo (Josh Young aka Slikver, whom you might know as well from e.g.

Tymvos

Once in a while – and that is exactly why I do like being a reviewer – you just get overwhelmed by something completely stunning. It does not have to be something new / renewing, you know, but something that just grabs you by your b***s, eh, something that draws attention.
