Burning Arrow is the second release from Vanum, the collaborative project of K. Morgan (Ash Borer, Predatory Light) and M. Rekevics (Fell Voices, Vilkacis, Vorde). Following their debut album, Realm of Sacrifice, released on Profound Lore Records, the Burning Arrow EP reveals a band both expanding their sonic palette and rigorously seeking the distillation of their own essence.
The next chapter in the evolving journey that is Häive – the long-awaited second full-length album from this most focussed of acts. Entitled simply ‘Iätön’ (Finnish for ‘Ageless’), this painstakingly crafted recording represents a true journey into the very soul of the band. Each element of Häive has been taken to the next level – the driving-yet-delicate guitars, impassioned vocals, powerful percussion and deeply thought-through themes, every aspect has been refined further in order to draw the listener into Häive’s world.

Hailing from Italy, Blaze of Sorrow was born ten years ago as a musical vessel to deliver themes of sorrow and self-reflection through nature-inspired black metal with a number of folk influences. Masterminded by multi-instrumentalist Peter, after several demos they quickly caught the attention of the underground with their self-released ‘L’ultimo Respiro’ debut albums, a record steeped in an ambience of despair and longing.

Following on the heels of the 2014 album 'V', the 6th full length 'Skadi' shows the Colorado individualists The Flight of Sleipnir more focused and settled. Taking inspiration from earlier recordings which work as the creative drive, they forge their trademark sounds ahead once again in Nordic spiked splendour wrapped in a new life-form. 'Skadi' creates another extraordinary venture, full of extreme metal and polarizing tension. There is a certain fresh simplicity in structure, though the further you delve in, the more complex and soaring it becomes. From pulsing waves of doom & stoner, decorative rock and prog to expanding glances into folk spiked with black metal-esque sparks. Whether you consume it at an intimate campfire or throughout stormy evenings, with ‘Skadi’ they have created one of their most passionate and artistic recordings to date.

Natives of Germany's rich black metal scene, VIVUS HUMARE formed in 2007 and released a demo, Prolog, in 2008.
With black metal as the base foundation, VIVUS HUMARE wander through various sonic catacombs - tense and pulsing one moment, doomed and desolate another, dynamic and fluent every step of the way - and take the listener on an emotional rollercoaster ride across epic tracks.
Grimoire reveals the expression of a wandering, lonesome soul searching for the path to spiritual elevation. Dreams, fantasy and beauty summoned upon the darkest mourning ashes of chaos and emptiness. The broken wheel of time, creation and destruction. A conscience invoked by nonexistence. A light raised in obscurity.

Originally issued in 2008 and published under several different pressings since then, this reworked and public re-edition of the bands debut „Sovereign Nocturnal“ comes with deluxe packaging and new stunning artwork.
Hailing from Colorado, USA, Velnias came into being in late 2006 and established themself by force of steady and captivating live performances throughout the years, be it single concerts and rituals or tours with the likes of Agalloch, Mournful Congregation or the recent EU appearances with Kampfar.
With three songs and a total running time of over 40 minutes, „Sovereign Nocturnal“ is widely described as a harmonic combination of sorrowful black metal with a sprawling doom atmosphere, combined with elements of folk & moody acoustic passages. Their musical foundation, with intertwined tracks of long brooding atmospheric monuments and feral yet fragile riffs with healthy traces of folk, manage to invoke the sense of a moonlit forest and the spirits within, nature's majesty and humanities irrevocable demise.

This is Woman is the Earth's second record (the first proper album) written over the course of three years. Much time and effort was put into writing and recording the album to uphold the original conception of the music. In addition to guitars and drums, a variety of instruments were used, including a Roland Juno-60, bass guitar, classical guitar & ocarina. The album reflects a yearning to reconnect with the spirit of the natural world in a time when that connection is quickly dissolving.

Originally released in 2007, AUSTERE's Withering Illusions and Desolation debut appeared seemingly out of nowhere and soon came to be considered a modern classic of suicidal, heartwrenching black metal. The duo's roots run deep in the enigmatic Australian black metal underground, but here on Withering Illusions and Desolation, AUSTERE crafted hysterical yet hauntingly melodic epics of absolute anguish and utter despair, taking the foundation laid down by Burzum to new heights/depths. Now, att long last, a proper and final re-issue of this first AUSTERE album arrives with new band-selected artwork, new mastering, and packaged in a six-panel digipack: their distant and desolate black metal has never been presented better.
