Moonlight Sorcery is a Finnish black metal trio formed in early 2018. The band’s black metal is a symphonic and melodic variety by nature. Inspired by many black metal classics as well as classic heavy metal and melodic death metal, the band indeed has a huge palette of influences, which is directly reflected in the versatility of the song material.
Piercing Through the Frozen Eternity, the band first EP, was worked on as the icy winds blew and winter did its magic. In all the peace and quiet. The silver-saturated nights of the moon rushed to the melodies that breathe sorrow and the eternal majesty of the cold stars.

Inherits The Void is the musical endeavor of French multi-instrumentalist Antoine Scholtès. Born in 2020, the project based in Clermont-Ferrand released the Mémoires EP before starting to work on a proper full-length studio album.
Monolith Of Light hence marks Inherits The Void debut album, born from Scholtès’s desire for “a meeting between influences from the ‘90s Swedish Black Metal scene and a more current orientation of the genre”. Rage and melody entwine in these seven hymns to the transience of man, bringing to mind the great masterworks of Dissection, Dawn and Vinterland, as well as the more contemporary sounds of France.
Inherits The Void adds to their deep black metal roots, incorporating atmospheric hints from bands like Celeste, Déluge and Nesseria: “the main idea behind that album was to compose songs that would be both melodic and atmospheric, embraced by the desire to propose a range of various emotions”.

ABYSMAL GRIEF's classic debut EP, Mors Eleison, on CD format for the first time ever.
ABYSMAL GRIEF should require little introduction. Since 1996, the band have prolifically maintained their position as Italy's foremost purveyors of traditional doom. Originally released in 2006 on vinyl, Mors Eleison followed a handful of demos and split releases; as such, it was ABYSMAL GRIEF's first stand-alone pro recording just prior to their classic self-titled album in 2007. Even this early on, their sulfurous magick was a beyond-heady brew that was simply impossible to deny. Sure, they embodied all the sonic/aesthetic traits otherwise associated with "doom," but it was the gothic horror (and sometimes, just straight-up gothiness) that really put ABYSMAL GRIEF into a class all their own, deeper and deeper into virtual and literal DOOM, and arguably here on Mors Eleison is where it first truly took flight...or is that depth(s)? Punning conundrums aside, the band also really underlined their grand lineage - and oddball uniqueness - with a cover of granddaddy Paul Chain's "Occultism" as well as the frequent excursions into crypt-dwelling ambient soundscapes. Also included in this new (and, we feel, definitive) version is the rare video for "Dies Funeris." Enter the crypt again, or for the first time!
