SUR AUSTRU
Obarsie / Obârșie

Super deluxe Digipack edition with DIE-CUT front and UV spot ! 

Following the concept of their first journey Meteahna Timpurilor, released via Avantgarde Music in 2019, Sur Austru is ready to present to you its natural follow up, their latest ritual called Obârşie. The band born from the ashes of beloved Negură Bunget is once again ready to take you to a trip through the endless forests of Romania and southern Carpathia with their ritualistic blend of black metal and local folklore.

With Obârşie, Sur Austru is opening new gates and sacred structures, developing the sound of the previous album and adding more layers of sounds, beautiful voices and choirs, massive sound walls, gloomy atmospheres, epic blast-beats as well as sacred traditional instruments, all in one single concept album. Obârşie is the Romanian word representing the concepts of origin, descent and source, whether it is the source of water in the mountains or an initiation ceremony.

You may want to add one copy of Sur Austru debut CD "Meteahna Timpurilor"  now in special offer with the new album's preorder for only 5.00€ (click here to add "metehana.." digi CD)

DROUGHT - Trimurti (CD)
Second hand

DROUGHT
Trimurti (CD)

Six panels digipak with booklet 

Drought is an entity spawned to channel its creators’ creative energy in a black metal form. The Tantric concept has been adopted to transform this energy into a tale of upheaval and elevation, using fire as a metaphor to celebrate spiritual transformation through cleansing, drawing purity from impurity. After a promising debut EP Drought fell into several years of silence, from which they will finally rise this spring to unleash their first full-length album, Trimurti.

As a Lotus grows from the swamp, enlightenment comes from improvement and regeneration. In Trimurti this theme is reprised from the previous ep Rudra Bhakti (2016, also on Avantgarde Music) and deepened, generating three suites - each explaining one of the three phases of this spiritual turmoil, as well as the three phases of Pranayama, and overall, the three phases of evolution: awareness - transformation - elevation. Nine tracks divided into three conceptual segments - this new opus develops and brings forth the tantric concept of the previous release, articulating it into a full spiritual blast of extreme music.

When asked to introduce the album, Drought said: “Trimurti represents the tantric chemistry of our creative energies and the ones kept within the sea, the mountains and the woods which surround us, channeled into music to celebrate the eternal life hidden in this world and in the ones behind it”.

Trimurti will be out on cd and lp (regular and limited) on May 15th / 22nd

PROFETUS - The Sadness of Time Passing
Second hand

PROFETUS
The Sadness of Time Passing

Profetus - The Sadness of Time Passing (New Full Album) Profetus was formed under the heavy snows of Tampere, Finland in 2006, to perform solemn and mournful, crushing and captivating Funeral Doom - brought to existence by A. Mäkinen & S. Kujansuu. The musical idea was to bring forth their musical love for old Doom Metal and especially to affine the funeral ambience of classic Finnish Funeral Doom acts like Thergothon, Unholy and Skepticism. As a leading frame of their future work, they decided to create the sound without bass guitar and replaced it with organ which would give a monotonous and more majestic background to their slow march. Highly acclaimed by the followers of the funeral cult. The Sadness Of Time Passing is the third full-length studio album by the Finnish band, and is worth every single day of the five long years its creation took. Profetus's third studio album is a concept about time and mortality, a collection of bleak compositions to raise the awareness that everything is transient, all is impermanent. To express such idea, The Sadness Of Time Passing can be linked to the Japanese concept "mono no aware", and such link to the far east is sealed by its cover. The painting by Yuka Yoshihara, talented contemporary Japanese painter, was made using 19th century colors and old Japanese painting techniques to resemble a Finnish romantic, XVII century painting. The Sadness Of Time Passing was composed along a five-year span, a period which carried great personal losses for Mäkinen. Eventually, Profetus locked the door of their own studio, a wooden lodge in the middle of the Finnish woods, and recorded the album as a whole during one week only, in early 2018. The studio, said to be haunted by the spirits of the woods, gave a natural sound to the recordings.

Suicide Forest - Reluctantly
Second hand

Suicide Forest
Reluctantly

Three years after their fascinating debut, Suicide Forest is back with Reluctantly, a sophomore album which further develops their art. Taking their name from the Japanese Aokigahara forest, where many troubled 
people travel to end their life, the one-man band from Tucson, Az., moves from classic depressive black metal coordinates and expands their sound palette. As a result, Reluctantly settles somewhere in between DSBM, atmospheric black metal and post-black/blackgaze.
The perfect company for restless souls, Reluctantly reminds of the eerie keyboard patterns of Burzum and the dilated atmospheres of contemporary US black metal pillars like Ash Borer, mixed with some unpredictable twists such as dissonant riffs and solos. Suicide Forest will please both those looking for furious up-tempos and the more introvert blacksters, looking for a sanctuary from the outside world.
Multi-instrumentalist and mastermind A.Kruger wrote Reluctantly in the second half of 2019, before the pandemic struck us all, but began tracking the album at his home studio in early 2020. About the lyrics, when asked what themes inform his work, he plainly replied: The whole album focuses
on the themes of resent and isolation, feelings that were only compounded considering the entirety of Reluctanlty was recorded during the covid-19 lockdown”.

NEIGE ET NOIRCEUR - Bach - Preludium Minor
Second hand

NEIGE ET NOIRCEUR
Bach - Preludium Minor

Neige et Noirceur comes back with a surprising tribute dedicated to the great Jean-Sébastien Bach: 4 minor preludes and one invention. Five pieces of baroque dark ambient with a touch of métal noir québécois.

Ultimate ode to melancholy and sadness, these minor preludes go off the beaten track, to lead us into baroque landscapes, embrassing the solitude of the hermit by Bruegel the Elder.

For this unique project, Sion Daus (aka Spiritus) is as always, accompanied on vocals by his devilish accomplice Schimaera. But the heart of this ablum is marked by the arrival of Cynthia who performs with grandeur, organs and other keyboards.

Bach / preludium minor is a unique and vital album for all fan of darkambient black metal.

APOKRYPHON - Subterra - A5 cd
Second hand

APOKRYPHON
Subterra - A5 cd

A5-sized digipak with extended booklet, printed on offset paper

Apokryphon is the new project by Zorgh, Darkspace founding member and bassist. This new band has nothing to do with Darkspace, hence it would be inappropriate to make any kind of comparison between the two. Quite the opposite, after twenty years crafting a certain kind of music (and a certain kind of black metal), the Bern-based musician wanted to explore something different, and this is why you should expect a totally distant approach to both themes and sounds. The multi-instrumentalist even chose a new alias for herself, here going by the name of Ophis.

We asked Ophis herself to express her thoughts about this new adventure she embarked on, which you can read hereunder: Apokryphon literally means "hidden" or "dark" and refers to the apocrypha, old esoteric scriptures written by a variety of people that were either actively hidden or controversial and therefore excluded from public viewing or biblical content, for example. Many of them were found to be heretical, some were related to gnosticism. Many of them were written in the geographical area of the Middle East about 2000 years ago. ”Subterra" thematically relates to themes treated in the apocrypha. Musically, it is rooted in black metal, decorated with oriental spices. It is an expression of my own personal and musical identity and themes that touch me generally. I have chosen to liberally interpret both apocryphal texts and black metal in my very own way. And with "Djinn" I have found the perfect voice to interpret most of the vocal aspects. 

After more than a decade of cooperation, at Avantgarde Music we have the utmost respect for the Swiss trio, and when one of the few women in the black metal world expressed her wish to produce an (almost) solo album we knew we wanted to give her our full support before even hearing a single note. Once we had Subterra in our hands, we were but proven right.

We hope you’ll find Apokryphon as interesteing as fascinating as we did. Subterra is scheduled for release on the 14th of February, 2020.

LYCIA
Casa Luna (black vinyl)

extra limited 100 copies in black vinyl

Anyone with the slightest interest in darkwave music and the goth counterculture is familiar with Lycia. Born in Tempe, AZ, in 1988 from the creative mind of Mike VanPortfleet, Lycia is as seminal and influential as a band can get. Devoted to cold, somber and synthetic sounds, these pioneers of the ethereal are responsible for some of the most acclaimed underground albums of the ‘90s. 

The current lineup of the band is John Fair, David Galas, Tara Vanflower and Mike VanPortfleet, who has been the only constant member since the band’s formation. Although only achieving minor cult success, the band is notable for being one of the groundbreaking groups in the darkwave and ethereal styles. Their 1995 album The Burning Circle And Then Dust "remains a high point of American dark rock" according to AllMusic, and 1996’s Cold has been cited as one of the genre’s best by Post-Punk.com and Alternative Press. Lycia's sound is characterized by rich soundscapes and layers of heavily effected guitars, dark atmospheric keyboards, heavy reverb drenched drum machines, VanPortfleet's somber raspy vocals and Vanflower's vivid melodic voice. 

Avantgarde Music had the pleasure to bring the 1991 debut full-length Ionia to a vinyl edition for the first time in early 2021, and this brought along the chance to cooperate on new music. This turned out to be a rich studio EP, Casa Luna. We reached out to Mike VanPortfleet, who describes Casa Luna as a followup to 2018’s In Flickers, with a more varied approach, stylistically and thematically. “In Flickers and Casa Luna are Lycia’s purest releases. Originally planned as a split 7” with the song “A Quiet Way to Go”, as more songs were written they evolved to an EP”.
