Collector's Edition in Digipack, limited to 500 copies.
The solo-project Forlorn Citadel plays Epic Black Metal in the vein of Summoning. This is done so remarkably well that at times fans might find it quite hard to differentiate between these two bands. Nonetheless there are enough own elements in the music to distinguish Forlorn Citadel from the inventors of Epic Black Metal.
So despite the considerable number of bands playing this style that appeared on the scene in the years following Caladan Brood's immensely successful debut album, Forlorn Citadel is another very welcome addition and we highly recommend "Ashen Dirge of Kingslain" to all fans of Summoning, Caladan Brood, Emyn Muil and similar projects!
The album is a collection of songs written late-2018 to mid-2019 and is dedicated to all warriors who fight their battles, only to return home to a kingdom that is not as it was.
Gateway to Selfdestruction is an Atmospheric Black Metal band from Germany, formed in 2013. Their debut album „Death, My Salvation“, released by Northern Silence in 2016, marked the beginning of the band’s musical output. At the time they had already been active on the live front for quite a while, captivating the audience with their sorrowful and haunting creations. The style was very much influenced by Katatonia’s “Brave Murder Day”, so signing the band was a foregone conclusion when the individual behind Northern Silence witnessed one of their fantastic live performances for the first time.
In November 2019 the band entered the studio to record their second album, entitled „Sanctus : Mater : Scortum“. It was once again produced by Patrick W. Engel at Temple Of Disharmony and will be released on CD and digitally on February 21st.
The concept behind the album delves into the power struggle between the child and the motherly, pathologic presence of a woman suffering from mental illness, whose self-destructive behavior is expressed through child abuse, perversions and prostitution in both obvious and hidden ways. The conceptual layout of the CD shows her pathology and the different roles she is driven to play in her life – the loving mother to the casual observer, the whore in secret, the Madonna as the highest aspiration which she struggles to reclaim.
Musically, Gateway to Selfdestruction went from the Depressive Black Metal with atmospheric Doom influences of earlier days to a more Progressive Extreme Metal sound with extensive use of clean guitars, guitar solos, different vocal styles, clean vocals, choirs and extreme screams. Influences range from old Katatonia to more contemporary acts such as Shining, Woods of Desolation, Ghost Brigade and Antimatter.
SEDER is the manifestation of the One through the accumulative infinite and birthed to consciousness and to material by Gurthang. This output is predicated on the eternal seeking of cosmic knowledge, oneness with nature and oneness with eternity.
Founded in 2012, a time when Gurthang was already active in the project ANCALAGON, and after some previous iterations of manifestations featuring Gurthang as the sole artist, the Sunbled album was recorded in 2016.
The music on SEDER's debut album could most appropriately be described as Cascadian Black Metal, and is recommended for fans of Wolves In The Throne Room, Fauna, Skagos and similar acts.
SEDER continues to be written and recorded in solitude, ever progressing toward a still more glorious dawn and cosmic-consciousness.
SEDER is a part of the One void collective, in eternal cosmic ceremony.

"A New Dawn" is the third album of Skyforest. It was written entirely in the first half of 2019 and takes us further into the Atmospheric (Black) Metal territory that we know from "Unity" and "Harmony".
Lyrically, it is about the journey into a new chapter of one's life. You never know what awaits you on a new day...but it's worth checking out. Many questions are still left unanswered and yet it may lead to a positive change.
The artist’s continued growth into a powerful, life-affirming creator is also reflected metaphorically in all of Skyforest’s artworks after the debut, and culminates in the wonderful paintings which adorn the new album, again masterfully captured on canvas by Sergey Shenderovsky.
