Sometimes all it takes is to be out there. In the misty, cold dark reality and be alone. A suburban street with impotent street lights failing to break through the spell of the fog. A city underpass with the pungent smell of urine the only reminder of other human existence. Or a windswept moor after midnight with owl’s silently devouring rodents and foxes quietly careening past as you realize your own insignificance. In such situations creative sparks are born and the sounds of the Earth reveal themselves. Herr K has clearly been listening, as Fragments Of Silence offers a portal into the eerie, yet unmistakably earthly void. Metamorphoses, was an homage to Kafka and while the bleakness of Fragments…tips a grey, tattered cap in the direction of the great man, it draws greater strength from our existential state and especially from the murky world of nightly dreams. “You are free, and that is why you are lost” Kafka reminds us. But listen closely and you will see yourself in Herr K’s sonic mirror and remember that ‘found and enslaved is no match for ‘lost and free’, especially in a world painted in such a stark, yet enchanting monochrome.

Infused with the same spirit as the preceding EPs, with Into the Wild VOODUS has honed their craft to its most fierce and finessed essence. This record is indeed a wild and winding ride through the murky depths of starkly melodic yet crypt-pure black metal. Their sound is staunchly rooted in the 1990s - with ice-cold melodies racing across the searing surge of black metal – but breathes a refreshing sense of dynamics and pacing. VOODUS does not engage with the blast-a-thons of old, the indiscernible blur of one song protracted over 30-plus minutes. Instead, the quartet unloads expert compositional variety here, with memorable melodicism constantly at the forefront - all of it framed in a clear and cutting production courtesy of the esteemed Necromorbus Studio. And it's a truly epic experience clocking in at 61 minutes, allowing the listener's wanderlust to truly run wild.
Duplicate Records proudly presents NEURONAUT. A rare breed indeed, this Sweden-based quartet combine a wide spectre of influences to create something that is completely their own. Atmospheric, progressive and dissonant are all adjectives that are easily associated with their debut, State Of Not Enough. However, those elements alone doesn't necessarily make a great album. It also takes high levels of songwriting, execution and production. NEURONAUT delivers on all accounts.
digipack cd with poster
A spiraling and winding descent into arcane black metal pandemonium! Sounding both modern and timeless at the same time, they unleash some serious throwback Celtic Frost/Darkthrone/early Mayhem vibes while projecting its hideous aura straight into the future with a shapeshifting approach to songwriting that can’t be called anything different but “prog”, while also throwing in the mix some unexpected ambient passages and improvisational liturgic abstractions ( that yield a result of constant motion and disorienting unpredictability, as if we were facing a European version of Negative Plane or a more experimental reinterpretation of the arcane mysticism of Mortuary Drape.
Comes with A2 poster and 12"x12" booklet glued on the gatefold sleeve.
Pressed on tri-colour heavy vinyl with splatters.
Classic brooding riffs, malignant atmospheres, primordial blastbeats and deathly guttural vocals are the hallmarks of ARCHGOAT's black art and "The Light-Devouring Darkness" is a monument to their unending vitriol and malice. Pungent as the stench of rotting flesh and supercharged with vitriol, this album exudes the reek of authentic, uncontrolled Satanic decadence.
Captured with terrifying clarity, the magickal energy and raw power of ARCHGOAT finds its purest expression in the live arena, in-the-moment where all witnesses are bludgeoned into the guts of earthen evil. Featuring an extended set including tracks from 1991 demo ‘Jesus Spawn’ via the classic 2006 full-length ‘Whore of Bethlehem’ all the way through to 2018’s ‘The Luciferian Crown’, this is a devastatingly brutal overview of one of the most singular bands in extreme music.
Comes with 2-page insert and download card.
