VENOMOUS SKELETON
Drowning in Circles

First pressing in a edition of 300 in a gatefold jacket
-200 Black Copies (THIS)
-100 Clear

It’s been 9 years since Sonne Adam’s death-doom masterpiece “Transformation” has been released, and the world of underground death metal hasn’t been the same ever since.
Countless death metal bands tried to emulate the cavernous sound of the Israeli compound, but no one really managed to reach the same peaks of sublime, transcendental darkness that the masters themselves achieved in 2011.
VENOMOUS SKELETON is a new creature featuring 3 members of Sonne Adam and “Drowning In Circles” is the bands first full-length release.
Instead of simply picking up where Sonne Adam left off, VENOMOUS SKELETON injects a lethal dose of proto Metal Of Death to their sound, exposing more of their musical roots, roots that are deeply buried into the same rotten soil that the pioneers of death metal walked on in late 80’s and early 90’s.

WORSEN
Cursed To Witness Life

- 200 copies Black
- 100 copies White/Black Marble (THIS)

After several years of silence, North Carolina black metal entity WORSEN returns with the long-awaited follow up to 2014's Blood EP in the form of a violent and somber 40 minute full length album called Cursed to Witness Life. Worsen mastermind and sole member Rick Contes speaks further on the new album, "If there was something I wasn't completely satisfied with I would trash it and start over. That's one of the reasons it took several years for this album to come together. The best riffs or sections of songs would naturally find their way back and there was more focus on guitars and song structure as a whole." Regarding the recording process he continues, "Just like previous releases, all vocals and instruments were recorded and/or programmed by me. For me this ones a pretty personal and cathartic record, so I wanted to put my best effort forward and cut no corners. It's something I started alone that I needed to finish alone."

OSSAERT
Bedehuis

First pressing in a edition of 300
-200 Black Copies (THIS)
-100 Transparant Red with Smoke (Band & Label Exclusive)

Zwolle’s, NL, solitary Black Metal entity OSSAERT has completed its first full-length recording and will unload it upon the masses through Argento Records on February 14th 2020.
Fuelled by hatred and disgust towards everything sacred, “Bedehuis” is a superbly written debut that balances an almost theatrical dramatic charge with a malignant atmosphere which permeates through every sound wave of the record.
This 35 minute long sonic journey seamlessly shifts between savage Black Metal predatory aggression and contemplative melodic passages, wall of sound pummelling oppression and a subtle but omnipresent macabre beauty.
“Bedehuis” will be available on limited blood/smoke vinyl, black vinyl and digital on February 14th, with more formats following later.

Includes double sided insert and polysleeve.

the opening of a thousand eyes in utter blackness.
the soft weeping of countless souls who lost all.
the smile of blood as a throat is cut
and the soft sigh as life escapes the wound.

take these as talismans in the waking world,
a crystallization of utter dread and despair.
take these dark gifts, this music of suffering.
let this woe entrance you and surrender.

AFFLICTION VECTOR
Death Comes Supreme - Ltd

Limited to 300 copies
-200 Black
-100 White (THIS)

Affliction Vector has been conceived as an introspective exploration by Ans in 2018.
After the dissolution of Ooze and his separation from Grime, the artist decided to embrace a solitary journey through his own inner demons, choosing isolation and his dissolving mental health as a fuel for his creative flame.
In 2019 drummer Christian Musich (The Secret, Grime) joined the project, projecting his primordial percussive ferocity into the compositions and solidifying the line up.
Inspired by masters like Mayhem, Bolt Thrower and Voivod, Affliction Vector regurgitates its influences into a completely new, unique, self-devouring Death and Black Metal magma that annihilates every boundary between nightmare and reality.
“Death Comes Supreme” is a spirit-possessed descent into suffering without any expectation of catharsis or cleansing. It’s the sound of an artist abandoning his mind into his own inner chaos, a realm dominated by demons.

ALCEST
Écailles de lune

 

CD hardcover book (18x18 cm, 48 pages) with hotfoil-embossed cover, preface by Neige, artwork sketches, liner notes and bonus track

The second album by the pioneers of post-black metal

Three years after their genre-defining record "Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde", Alcest return to the sound of black metal on their sophomore "Écailles De Lune", but without forgetting any of their trademarks: calm passages, massive slabs of guitars, catchy melodies, and hook-lines going straight to the heart. "This time I was especially inspired by the seaside, the energy and the exaltation you can feel when you sit in front of the sea at night," Neige tries to describe the album's atmosphere. "It appears terribly fascinating, full of secrets and scary at the same time."

MOONCITADEL - Night's Scarlet Symphonies
Pre order

MOONCITADEL
Night's Scarlet Symphonies

At long last, the full fathom of MOONCITADEL's now-transcendent powers arrives with the band's long-awaited debut album, Night's Scarlet Symphonies. If past MOONCITADEL recordings bore titles evocative of their respective contents, then surely Night's Scarlet Symphonies trumps them all: here is a bountiful feast of splendorous, widescreen black metal mysticism that's reverent of the mid '90s whilst channeling energies new and untold. Everything about MOONCITADEL's debut album - spiraling melodicism, folkloric atmosphere, impassioned performance, engrossing totality - maximizes the duo's previous works to their fullest potential, all threaded together by a never-too-raw soundfield that heightens these elements further. Which is to say nothing of its attendant song titles; over the course of its impossibly vast 47-minute runtime, some of Night's Scarlet Symphonies include "Ablaze My Heart With Falling Stars," "Nightwind was the Passage Between Worlds," "Whispering Cry of Magick Undying," and especially "Monumental Silver Thorns" all conveying this (monumental, silvery, magickal) headspace.

 

A new modern classic of old mystical black metal has hereby been born with MOONCITADEL's Night's Scarlet Symphonies!

RECITATIONS
The First of the Listeners

Digipack CD by Avantgarde Music

Recitations started work on what would become "the First of the Listeners" in late 2015, after ideas and thoughts had built up and been discussed between the members for quite some time.
The aim was to create unpretentious dark music in an experimental exploration of both unusual harmonies and patterns, as well as lyrical content, and this is what can be heard in its initial steps on this recording.
The band consists of members from more or less known bands to the underground of Black and Death Metal, but wants to keep focus on the musical and ideological aspects instead of participating in the cult of persona, though without any pompous focus on anonimity for the sake of it.

CIORAN
Bestiale Battito Divino

Cioran, from the monicker who calls into question the homonymous Romanian philosopher, evoke the cumbersome burden of the tragic existence of existence. The new Divine Bestial Beast, released three years later by the EP in the cassette for the American Caligari Records, is a step further than the nihilistic wave that has permeated so much music lately and has become a Sticky sticker label on the right and missing. No space for moments of light, this is clear, but their concept is more about a Gnostic dualism of duality expressed by hermetic lyrics. We talk about the paradox of the coexistence of the bestial and the divine, of their balance within an organism, that is, of the man tout cour

AION
Verses of Perdition

AION was founded in MMXIII by M.V., as a means to give sonic shape to mental and physical limit experiences. The first opus, “Verses of Perdition”, contains five tracks which represent five phases of a journey to the spiritual desert – a pathway to perdition, to the fathomless chasm, the radiant night of unexistence.
The music shall stand as a symbol for its grey shores, the realm of one’s own dying – illimitable and infinite.
“Verses of Perdition” reached its final manifestation with the contributions of Asknt (drums) and Ishk (voice)
