Vendita vinili - musica Black Metal e Dark estrema

Anyone with the slightest interest in darkwave music and the goth counterculture is familiar with Lycia. Born in Tempe, AZ, in 1988 from the creative mind of Mike VanPortfleet, Lycia is as seminal and influential as a band can get. Devoted to cold, somber and synthetic sounds, these pioneers of the ethereal are responsible for some of the most acclaimed underground albums of the ‘90s.
The current lineup of the band is John Fair, David Galas, Tara Vanflower and Mike VanPortfleet, who has been the only constant member since the band’s formation. Although only achieving minor cult success, the band is notable for being one of the groundbreaking groups in the darkwave and ethereal styles. Their 1995 album The Burning Circle And Then Dust "remains a high point of American dark rock" according to AllMusic, and 1996’s Cold has been cited as one of the genre’s best by Post-Punk.com and Alternative Press. Lycia's sound is characterized by rich soundscapes and layers of heavily effected guitars, dark atmospheric keyboards, heavy reverb drenched drum machines, VanPortfleet's somber raspy vocals and Vanflower's vivid melodic voice.
Avantgarde Music had the pleasure to bring the 1991 debut full-length Ionia to a vinyl edition for the first time in early 2021, and this brought along the chance to cooperate on new music. This turned out to be a rich studio EP, Casa Luna. We reached out to Mike VanPortfleet, who describes Casa Luna as a followup to 2018’s In Flickers, with a more varied approach, stylistically and thematically. “In Flickers and Casa Luna are Lycia’s purest releases. Originally planned as a split 7” with the song “A Quiet Way to Go”, as more songs were written they evolved to an EP”.
Returning with their third scathing blast of profane black death metal, England’s Wode now join with 20 Buck Spin to unleash ‘Burn In Many Mirrors’, their most potently wild and predatory work yet. With six new tracks spanning 40 minutes of meticulously summoned infernal ferocity Wode scorch the landscape and drape it in the foul reek of death’s fog.

t has been seven long years since the world was last blessed with new music from the melodic blackened death metal stalwarts of NIGHTFALL, but now the band is plotting a triumphant return with ‘At Night We Prey’, the darkest and latest chapter of NIGHTFALL’s already storied career.
‘At Night We Prey’ is a very dark and personal effort, tackling the topic of frontma, Efthimis Karadimas’s battle with depression. “A beast I have experienced its teeth deep into my soul, I decided to come out and share that experience with metalheads,” Karadimas laments. “This is the least I can offer now to the big fight against depression. If we don’t stop this, it will eat us all alive. Share your pain, speak openly about it. This is the only way to kill the demons in your mind.”
including a unreleased Bonustrack!

Re-issue of MÖRK GRYNING’s sophomore record ‘Return Fire’ Originally released in 1996, MÖRK GRYNING’s second full-length ‘Return Fire’ breathes a more raw and darker atmosphere than its predecessor. The record, highly influenced by thrash metal titans such as KREATOR and SLAYER, even contains the band’s own interpretation of the song “Necrophiliac” by SLAYER. Over the years, the record gained popularity and is now regarded as one of the classics of early Swedish black metal.
