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.

SATURN'S CROSS
Cheat Death (LTD vinyl)

Sebastian Montesi is a prolific artist, probably best known for his endeavors in Mitochondrion and for being one of the founding members of Auroch.
With Saturn’s Cross, the Canadian took a very different path, delving into cold wave territories, which little have to share with the bands he is usually associated to. Yet, when we listened to what Sebastian crafted, we had no doubt, and we gladly welcomed this new project to our roster. With neither hope nor fear, Saturn’s Cross unveils Cheat Death.  Now operating as a two piece, with 1908 entering the fold on bass and
vocals, Cheat Death disregards genre with wild abandon in favour of something that is at times overwhelmingly abrasive and at others intoxicating.
This is a willing exploration of the endless labyrinth and a lamp of pitch black glass intended to serve as a beacon in the lightless depths of the human spirit. This is a headlong dive into the soul's psychic darkness, with nothing to break the fall. This ushers in a new era Saturn's Cross.

GRA (GRÁ)
Flame Of Haephestus (LTD)

Guitarist and singer Heljarmadr (Dark Funeral) expressed his thoughts: “Flame Of Hephaestus” is the first single from our new album Lycaon. We feel that it is a good representative for the album and it carries an intensity that kinda connects it with our last album Väsen. It serves as a natural bridge, if you will.

Flame Of Hephaestus brings us back to our early days, when we were including more influences from Greek mythology, alongside the ancient Scandinvian cult. It is therefore also quite suitable that Lycaon was mixed and mastered in Greece. Mixed by Terry Nikas and mastered by George Nerantzis”.

The Flame Of Hephaestus artwork was created by Italian artist Roberto Toderico, while the B-side, ”Stella Polaris”, is a single exclusive instrumental track, written by guitarist Maugrim. This is his first contribution for Grá as a composer.

FERUM - Asunder/Erode (black vinyl)
Pre order

FERUM
Asunder/Erode (black vinyl)

Ferum is a death doom metal band originated in Italy, but now scattered
over two countries. Asunder / Erode, the band’s debut album, is an
obsessive and monolithic record. Slow, funereal riffs are tied to faster,
sharper parts, while harmonized melodies and solos paint a cavernous
atmosphere. The drums wisely marches, moving from the background into
the spotlight, always followed by the bass guitar.
Asunder / Erode was recorded and mixed at Walter Productions in Tallinn,
Estonia by producer and sound engineer Are Kangus. The studio is located
inside the historic Tallinna Linnahall, a behemoth built during the Soviet
occupation. Today it is an urban wreck kept alive by few commercial
activities which are based on the inside: it is in fact closed to the public,
with the exception of some parts. Its interior is a maze of stillbirth potential,
and inspired one of the album's pieces.
The record was mixed completely in analogue to give the songs a deeper,
more archaic, real thickness. The master by Dan Swanö added the final
touches, making the album consistent, organic and even heavier.
Conceptually, Asunder / Erode is a journey that explores the idea of
separation and its dichotomy, up to erosion and collapse. This is
represented in a morbid and extreme way by the cover by Maestro Paolo
Girardi. The choice of oil on canvas follows the same logic of the analogue
mix: to make the whole as natural, as real as possible, and to pay homage
to the influences that inspired Ferum, by reinterpreting them
