Svart Records turn ears towards a new wave of sound from Sweden, PÅGÅ and their wildly original new album The Evil Year.
PÅGÅ describe The Evil Year in their own words:
Outlandish pop and psychedelic noir rock from Sweden’s Åhman brothers, Pelle and Gottfrid (ex vocalist and bassist from In Solitude). Hand-picked by Mat Kvohst McNerney (Hexvessel, Beastmilk, Grave Pleasures) for his Secret Trees imprint via Svart.
Kvohst describes PÅGÅ as “Post-Punk freakery, like Birthday Party era Cave, avant-garde Bowie and the darkness of Coil with unique artistic flair that’s in a world of its own.”
The Evil Year features beautifully outlandish artwork by Pelle Åhman with layout by Erik Danielsson (Watain). Deluxe ltd edition, numbered, purple coloured gatefold vinyl (first pressing limited 500 copies only!) with lyric & artwork booklet, digipak CD and digital release via all digital platforms.
"Angstbeißer", taken from the new album "Jupiter" by Stillers Tod. Order "Jupiter" as double vinyl (limited to 250 copies) or as CD with DVD-sized digipack and 20-pages booklet (limited to 100 copies) on www.schattenpfade.de
ZALMOXIS stands for storming and epic German Black Metal. Still early days, this concurrent project of Fortress of the Olden Days mainman Entheogen has so far released two demos - the latter of which, Pralayic Beheading, was released by brother label HARVEST OF DEATH. These early works suggested a restless soul steeped in the ancients, black metal of a most medieval vintage.
Now ZALMOXIS strikes back with an ambitious 25-minute single track ominously bearing the title A Nocturnal Emanation. A none-more-apt description of its contents if there ever was one, here Entheogen patiently builds an ethereal-yet-thick fog of sorcerous swirl, its strangely alluring spell drowning the listener in dissonace and dislocated melody. And yet, despite its grandiose length, A Nocturnal Emanation manages to engage at every step, each one rife with grim abandon and on the verge of self-combustion but then righting itself into a surprising twist of texture. This misty 'n' mystical landscape beckons complete immersion...dare you enter?
2020 Official reissue in super heavy TRIPLE LP vinyl, with many bonus and king-size booklet
This is the solo project by Uada founding member and guitarist James Sloan, a kaleidoscopic black metal creature deeply rooted in the depressive black metal sounds of the Nineties.
The Sorcerer’s Sorrow is Anachitis very debut, where obscure, minimal synths pave the way for obsessive guitar riffs and desperate shrieks recounting a tale of despair and self destruction. In Sloan’s words, “There is an underlying story here being told backwards of someone who desperately seeks answers to escape the pain of existence through esoteric practices, but finds nothing but a path to total self destruction”.
"Morningstar" is a progressive metal album with power elements, "Heavy metal that’s vibrant and organic, and at the same time as hard hitting and powerful as we can possibly make it, is the goal", according to the band, and they have the chance to contribute something really meaningful.
