BLOEDMAAN - Castle Inside The Eclipse
Pre order

BLOEDMAAN
Castle Inside The Eclipse

12" Vinyl + Insert & A2 Poster

Bloedmaan, another brainchild by the infamous Ronarg (also known from Ars Veneficium & Antzaat) presents its debut full length album «Castle Inside the Eclipse». Those who are familiar with both mentioned bands know what to expect from this gentlemen and can even hear similarities, however, Bloedmaan stands completely on its own.


The music is as Melodic as Antzaat and as Violent as Ars Veneficium, yet, the approach is completely different. Fast and complex guitar melodies wrapped in a harsh mid 90’s old school sound package with variated drum patterns and those nice low end basslines. The vocals give you that haunted 90’s Vampyric feeling with a touch of depressive note without entering the suicidal atmosphere.


All in all, Bloedmaan delivers a Hell of a debut album that will take the Black Metal scene by storm without a doubt!

SULDUSK - Anthesis
Pre order

SULDUSK
Anthesis

 

Anthesis is a groundbreaking new album from Australia's @suldusk444 formerly a one woman project and now a full band. Mixed by Troy Mccosker (Ne Obliviscaris) and mastered by Thomas Johansson (Soilwork), Anthesis is a true game changer for the heavy genre, blurring lines and dissolving the boundaries of heavy music as we know it today. A synthesis of dark folk and a myriad of heavy genres, Anthesis creates a resonance which alights both the shimmers and the shadows from the deepest woodlands.

GOTHMOG
Medieval Journeys

Collector's Edition in 4-panel digipack, limited to 500 copies.

"Depressive Silence was founded by RAL & B.S. from Mightiest in 1994. The band is one of the cult acts and forerunners of the Dungeon Synth genre alongside Mortiis and Jim Kirkwood. 
When Depressive Silence split up and RAL & B.S. created their individual Dungeon Synth projects, B.S. founded Solanum and RAL founded Gothmog. So these were the follow-up projects of Depressive Silence back in the 90s, and their releases are also being reissued by Northern Silence in remastered form and with new, exclusive artwork by master artist David Thiérée.
Gothmog only ever released one demo, entitled ""Medieval Journeys"", back in 1998. It featured 7 songs of old school Dungeon Synth that will no doubt appeal to fans of Depressive Silence as well. This re-release also includes an intro that was not part of the original release."

SGÀILE - Traverse The Bealach
Pre order

SGÀILE
Traverse The Bealach

Sgàile is the artistic endeavour of Scottish multi-instrumentalist Tony Dunn, of which Avantgarde Music released the overlooked, yet greatly crafted debut Ideals & Morality in december 2021. Two years later, the talented Scot is back with his sophomore opus, Traverse The Bealach, which he describes as follows.

“When I started the Sgàile project in 2018, and through the writing and recording of Ideals & Morality, I wasn’t sure that anyone would take to the style, or even care. This time around I knew I had a small audience that enjoyed what I was doing so I felt free to create from pure instinct. 

With that freedom came focus and direction, which led me to create a concept album, a venture that I had never previously attempted. What this did was create a driven narrative that brought a maturity to the Sgàile sound.

Through the recording process, there was a feeling of refinement, taking the lessons I learned from Ideals & Morality and carefully honing them to improve the overall production. Working with Mike Lamb (Sojourner, Remina) for a second time really helped to pin down the sonic quality that I was looking for. 

The story of Traverse The Bealach is that of a nomadic traveller in post-apocalyptic Scotland, trying to figure out his fate and facing the elements while travelling north, battling inner demons along the way. Thematically, the inspiration came from the events of the pandemic, our ongoing battle with climate change, and my fascination with long distance trekking.”

ALFAHANNE - Vår tid är nu
Pre order

ALFAHANNE
Vår tid är nu

Taking one step forward and three steps back, Alfahanne returns home to Dark Essence Records with their most furious and heavy release to date! Marking exactly 10 years since the band's debut, the new album "Vår tid är nu" will see the dark of night in February 2024.

Loaded with the catchy melodies that has become the Alfahanne signature, the album combines a punk attitude, melody and groove with a bleak atmosphere somehow both reminiscent of the 80s and the early days of black metal.

Adding such noble and notorious guests as Nattefrost (Carpatian Forest), Spellgoth (Horna), Nattfursth (Sorhin) and Doedsadmiral (Nordjevel) into the mix, you have an explosive cocktail fit for the end of days.

On "Vår tid är nu", Alfahanne looks back while leaning forward, staring deep into the abyss.

The band quotes "Our time is now, this is the beginning of the end."
