Drown, alongsides Aureole and Tchornobog, takes on a central role in the work of Ukrainian-born musician Markov Soroka. The album “Unsleep” was originally released in 2014 under the moniker Slow, containing five songs that tell the story of a man who drowns himself, whereupon his body and spirit spiral forever in the deep sea. Melodic and infinitely creepy, the record sets the stage for Soroka's later releases of Aureole and Tchornobog, all of which explore the same narrative world.
With "Nephilim Grove," Chicago's Novembers Doom celebrate their 30th anniversary in style, building upon the grandiose vision founder Paul Kuhr has developed throughout the years. As an entity existing in his singular musical universe of doom, death and progressive metal, the band by now dodges all endeavors of categorization.
Wolcensmen’s purpose is to draw upon those folkloric moods and aesthetics and to explore the mystical Heathen culture of North-Western Europe. In October 2017 the first live performance of Wolcensmen songs took place in England’s Lake District. Following this, work began on the writing and planning of a sophomore album and further live shows.In 2018, Wolcensmen signed with the Norwegian label Indie Recordings, who reissued ‘Songs from the Fyrgen’ in November of that year, with several new songs and a cover of Bathory’s ‘Man of Iron’ included as a bonus EP under the title of ‘Songs from the Mere’. In 2018/2019, Wolcensmen toured the UK and lowlands of Europe supporting Winterfylleth, and then entered the studio to record the follow up to ‘Songs from the Fyrgen’, ‘Fire in the White Stone’ – a concept album.
When PARADISE LOST guitarist Greg Mackintosh put to rest his VALLENFYRE side project in 2018, he closed a difficult, but an ultimately cathartic period in his life. Created as a tribute to his father John, who passed away in 2009, VALLENFYRE originally served as a sounding board for Greg’s grief, but then delved into his nihilistic take on the world. VALLENFYRE’s brief existence was intentional — the band always knew they could go no further than the three studio albums that bore their name. A mere few days after VALLENFYRE played its last live show in September 2018, Mackintosh announced the formation of a brand-new band, STRIGOI.Named after the troubled spirits in Romanian mythology who could rise from the grave and assume an entirely different form, STRIGOI's lineup is rounded out by former EXTREME NOISE TERROR and VALLENFYRE bass player Chris Casket, who was also responsible for the project's lyrics. Mackintosh gave him simple thematic guidelines: Attack organized religion, sparingly discuss grief and dive into the countless horrible things humanity continues to inflict upon itself.
The resultant 12-song-debut »Abandon All Faith« was recorded and mixed at Greg's Black Planet Studio between January and March 2019 and today, the English duo unveils a haunting music video directed by Ash Pears. Designed in the same black and white vein of the band's overall look, 'Phantoms' will clearly evoke some ghosts. Stream or download the new single here: https://nblast.de/Strigoi-Phantoms
