CRIMSON DIMENSION - s/t

CRIMSON DIMENSION
s/t

 

Although appearing as a new entity, the origins of Finland's CRIMSON DIMENSION date back to 2017 or perhaps even earlier. That year, the band revealed the staggeringly epic track "Black Mass," which vividly displayed 12 minutes of blackened progressive metal. That CRIMSON DIMENSION stress this difference - blackened progressive metal, instead of "progressive black metal" - is telling, as their spectrum of sounds & sensations encompasses a far wider range than the usually-obsidian hues of black metal, no matter how extended or extrapolated. While years of seeming silence followed, CRIMSON DIMENSION were patiently crafting their long-form debut, now emerging as Crimson Dimension. If the dozen minutes of "Black Mass" dazzled in their generous buffet of adventurous metallics, then the three accompanying songs surrounding it on the album go even deeper and darker than that already-not-inconsiderable feat. With all four songs combining for nearly an hour's worth of music, CRIMSON DIMENSION go all in on painting a dark, dynamic, and detouring canvas beyond compare. To be sure, the root sounds are decidedly black metal in origin, but with the quintet's enviable chops put squarely in the service of The Song and no texture considered too taboo, Crimson Dimension mystifies and mesmerizes with ever-shifting ease. In fact, for each of its component tracks going well into the double digits, the album's deceptively compact; those Herculean minutes pass ever so quickly, so thrilling and storytelling is CRIMSON DIMENSION's songcraft.

INHERITS THE VOID - The Impending Fall Of The Stars
Pre order

INHERITS THE VOID
The Impending Fall Of The Stars

The Impending Fall Of The Stars is intended to be the evolutionary continuity of Monolith Of Light, Inherits The Void’s debut album released in 2021.

Despite this continuity, however, the album tends to be more melodic, leaning towards the black metal scene of the ‘90s, particularly the Swedish one (Sacramentum, Dawn, Vinterland) while still infusing modern influences from bands such as Regarde Les Hommes Tomber and even elements taken from the first wave of melodic death metal (early Ablaze My Sorrows, Eucharist, Gates Of Ishtar and the likes).

“The Impending Fall Of The Stars was composed as a faithful mirror of my initial and all-time musical tastes and influences. The involvement of session members - with their own feelings and sensibilities - proved rewarding and made it possible to reach the final rendering as it is proposed”, said Inherits The Void composer and mastermind Antoine Scholtès.

“The nine songs revolve around people migrations from very ancient ages to current times, considering the hopes, the dangers, and the loneliness from all of them during their wandering. All these emotions have permeated the composition of the songs in order to obtain music in which rage, chaos, melancholy, sadness and hopes are mixed together”.

ANACHRONISM - Meanders (limited)
Pre order

ANACHRONISM
Meanders (limited)

Anachronism is a Swiss band formed in 2009. Drawing inspiration from a lot of different influences, from dissonant, technical and brutal death metal to jazz and prog music, the quartet is now about to release their third studio album, Meanders.

Following the self-released Orogeny from 2018 (and the Reflecting the Inside EP before that), Meanders is a work of heavy contrasts: pure blasts of violence intertwine with ambient, intimate parts or groovy drum & bass duos. On top of complex, unpredictable structures, singer Lisa Voisard’s low growls and aerials riffs make work to bring depth to the eight songs of the albums.

When asked to describe their new opus, Anachronism answered: “Sometimes we find harmonized arpeggios, sometimes we find fast and agressive moments, and in the end each song is a journey of its own, painting a different scenario”.

With their new album Anachronism shows varied atmospheres and moods, all with powerful feelings and a rich palette of emotions. Come take a tour through their Meanders.

Anachronism new album, with a cover illustration by Adam Burke, will be released via Avantgarde Music death metal division Unorthodox Emanations on January 28th, 2023.

GRA (GRÁ) - Lycaon
Pre order

GRA (GRÁ)
Lycaon

Since their inception in 2010, Grá has relentlessly worked to shape their music to be both a perfect example of Swedish black metal and a very personal interpretation of its classic sound. Their new studio album will mark the first cooperation between the band from Stockholm and Avantgarde Music, and we thought best to leave frontman Heljarmadr complete freedom to introduce the opus.

Lycaon is our fourth full length album and ever since we started Grá in 2010, we have been striving for constant evolution, to challenge ourselves as musicians and composers with every release.

Where our last album Väsen was extremely intricate and bombastic, with an "all in" approach to keyboards, orchestral parts, acoustic guitars and choir arrangements, Lycaon is heading in the opposite direction. It has fewer layers and with that, every layer needs to be meticulously measured and well thought out to carry the right atmosphere forward.

MISTHYRMING - Með hamri
Pre order

MISTHYRMING
Með hamri

By their hammer let none be saved – Misþyrming return to lay down the law. Með hamri is the sound of the iron heel of Black Metal trampling the face of musical modernity.

Með hamri is deeply saturated with the vibrantly alive energy that Misþyrming capture so effectively on stage. The drums sound organic and powerful, the guitar distortion has a vicious bite, and D.G.’s vocals are as brutal and evocative as ever. The underlying spirit is one of action. There is melancholy, bitterness, and filth, but one of the album’s foremost characteristics is its relentless surge of determination. Never before have Misþyrming sounded livelier and more confrontational.

BAD MANOR
The Haunting (black vinyl)

BLACK VINYL

“A house, high on a hill, filled with a mystical air.”

Emerging from the burgeoning Ordo Vampyr Orientis circle, black metal entity Bad Manor's energetic and whimsical debut The Haunting weaves a series of dark tales surrounding the band's titular mansion. Inhabited by dark spirits and curses alike, Bad Manor's vision of black metal looks not to grim forests and minimal musical ideas but rather vivid, imagination-driven scenes, curious tales, and sinister, active musical ideas alike. Featuring a paired book illustrated by artist Landis Blair and with stories recounted by the mysterious author and medium Stephen R.C. Sicreeve, The Haunting's multidisciplinary approach to black metal – filled with secrets and hidden passages – is as sprawling and chaotic as the house itself. Lose yourself in its hallways, but don't let yourself disappear. Listeners and readers alike: beware.

Each new homage becomes a portrait, each new portrait becomes our legend.
