OLIO TAHTIEN TAKANA - Spectral Katharsis (black/grimace purple vinyl)
Pre order

OLIO TAHTIEN TAKANA
Spectral Katharsis (black/grimace purple vinyl)

Galaxy effect, grimace purple in black (final result may vary from this computer generated mock up)

Olio Tähtien Takana is one of the artistic expressions of Finnish multi-instrumentalist v-KhaoZ (Vargrav, Druadan Forest and many others), here joined in his artistic endeavour by singer Hellwind Inferion (Desolate Shrine, Sargeist).

Spectral Katharsis is the third album by Olio Tähtien Takana, and is described by Hellwind with a series of key terms: “Cosmic, majestic misanthropy and ultimate devil worship”. Expect fury, rage and patterns of keyboards to surround you and bring you on your journey through the cosmos.

On the musical side of things, v-KhaoZ says: “We wanted something different than our other bands, a more straightforward, yet melodic approach. To this we added a varied singing style and otherworldly, space-like keyboards, to reach the multidimensionality we were aiming for”. Spectral Katharsis will tickle fans of Limbonic Art, Odium and the mid-’90s symphonic black metal scene.

The band's very name is probably the best expression to describe what v.KhaoZ and Hellwind Inferion are trying to accomplish with their collaboration, as Olio Tähtien Takana is Finnish for 'A Creature Beyond the Stars'.

Dold Vorde Ens Navn - Mørkere
Pre order

Dold Vorde Ens Navn
Mørkere

DOLD VORDE ENS NAVN have been born out of friendship. Although the band consists of veterans of Norway's black metal scene that have been or are still members of such important names as DØDHEIMSGARD, ULVER, SATYRICON, VED BUENS ENDE, and STRID that has never been their point or an end in itself. Instead their focus lies entirely on creating the music that they love and want to play. The Norwegians' debut full-length, "Mørkere" (“Darker”) is a case in point. The perspective of this album has, in the true spirit of black metal, expanded into something that is bound to its roots yet at the same time reaches beyond them. DOLD VORDE ENS NAVN started from the simplest of propositions: two old friends, Haavard Jørgensen and Kai S. 'Cerberus' Halvorsen, getting together over drinks and deciding to record a track together for fun. Both had deep histories in Norway's second wave of black metal that came to infamous fruition in the early 90s. Haavard had played in the death metal band, ECZEMA, that went on to become SATYRICON, before joining a then-nascent ULVER in 1993. Kai had been a sound engineer at the S.R.F. Studio in Oslo that hosted bands such as DIMMU BORGIR, AURA NOIR, VED BUENS ENDE, and DØDHEIMSGARD, briefly joining the latter on drums for early rehearsals, before returning as bassist on their 1998 EP, "Satanic Art". Initially for the lyrics, the founding duo turned to Cerberus' old friend, former bandmate and colleague at S.R.F., DØDHEIMSGARD frontman, Yusaf 'Vicotnik' Parvez – an artist whose continued presence in the black metal scene has proved transformational. Both the band he’d fronted since 1994 and the band he joined the same year, VED BUENS ENDE, had morphed into volatile, avant-garde entities that wrote a strand of rogue code that still lies embedded in the movement's DNA. Joined by latest DØDHEIMSGARD recruit, NIDINGR drummer Øyvind Myrvoll, DOLD VORDE ENS NAVN set about recording the debut EP, 2019's "Gjengangere I Hjertets Mørke". It was in part a testimony to the scene that had defined their youth. This is also true for the debut full-length. Yet although the sound of "Mørkere" is rooted in 90s black metal, it veers off new sonic terrain. The range of dynamics and textures throughout this album – the dramatic escalations and the discipline with which they hold to a beat; the utilising of mid-paced grooves made gripping by the conviction driving them on; and the shifts in tone proving as unforced and holistic as a weather front – are not just the mark of a band in full control of their art but break new ground. There is no fake nostalgia to be had from DOLD VORDE ENS NAVN. "Mørkere" is a contemporary Norwegian black metal album with a proud heritage that stands on its own and is more than ready to take the test of time.

LYS
Silent Woods (Sound Cave exclusive)

100 copies limited, comes in a blend of dark grey/black and blue vinyl colors: this is a computer generated mock-up, final color may vary

Lys is the mastermind of Enisum, the well-known Italian atmospheric black metal band. After focusing on his main band for over a decade, the time came for the musician from Val di Susa to temporarily focus on something different. Here comes Silent Woods, Lys first solo album, a mélange of atmospheric black metal, acoustic music, nature, landscapes, mountains, rivers and forests. 

Similar to yet different from his main musical endeavours, Silent Woods shows a varied sound palette, with the usual Enisum references (Agalloch, Wolves In The Throne Room and the Pacific Northwestern scene) and some twists. Acoustic guitars and clean vocals find their way in, and so do more extreme elements, such as gurgling screams and hypnotic, circular guitar riffs with clear depressive black metal references (Xasthur, Leviathan and the likes).

Come join Lys in his new venture through the woods of Northwestern Italy. Avantgarde Music will take you to the Alps on October 29th.

1914
Where Fear and Weapons Meet

Black Vinyl

"Ukrainian blackened death/doom metal offensive 1914 continue to reflect the gruesome tales of World War I, its soldiers’ fate, their death, fear and feats to be never forgotten, and unleash their new opus, Where Fear and Weapons Meet, on October 22nd, via Napalm Records. Its eleven tracks of pure historic harshness follow up to the band’s sophomore full-length, The Blind Leading the Blilnd (2018), and debut, Eschatology of War (2015), both highly acclaimed amongst critics, and create a sophisticated variety of massively brutal blackened death metal accented by dramatic and realistic audio soundscapes and disquieting melodies spiced with the approach of sludge and doom!
