Merlin - Iron Borne (Live)

At the beginning of the year, right after The Wizard was released, we decided to switch to a 6 piece lineup and loved the sound so much that we wanted to record and release our first show together no matter how intensely unpredictable or potentially sloppy it was gonna be on stage. We wanted to do it no matter what would befall upon us. Well it ended up being a pretty cool night and without further ado...We are proud to announce our newest release, Dank Souls and Dark Weed: A Live Experience

Lucid Sins - The Witcher

Every now and then a band comes along and gives you something new. Rarely is that something melodic, as there are limited permutations in rock and at some point everything is derivative. LUCID SINS manage that three card trick with a blend of pastoral, psychedelic freshness. It’s a mix of Topanga Canyon legends, Crosby, Stills and Nash, occult rock, and antique doom not a million miles removed from the first Witchcraft record. This is a heady mix of melody and nuance that will appeal to any listener.
The danger of using melody in doom is that you risk alienating the metal listeners. The key to retaining your credibility is, of course, lyrical content. Ghost’s overt melodies where offset by their dedication to the dark side, which made them successful. Lucid Sins, likewise, make good on content. In short, they know their stuff.

Demon Head - The Resistance

Denmark’s most authentic proto-metal project took shelter from the winter on 2016 and shook off the frost with their massive second full-length ‘Thunder on the Fields’. It was somewhat overlooked for it’s retro sound and stripped-down hard psych style. The allure of Demon Head is in their dark proto-metal sound that rolls out like a cleaned up Pentagram tape from the 70’s. The immediate draw for me towards Demon Head was the lightly baked vocals of M. Ferreira Larsen that have a perfect affectation for their style, his cadence is halfway between briefly NWOBHM/prog band Demon‘s Dave Hill and a touch of 90’s Glenn Danzig minus the hysterics. His tone brings some horror and darkness that few retro-referential groups manage and elevates the personality of their guitar driven rock music.

Satan's Satyrs - Germanium Bomb

Staggering out of Herndon, Virginia, like a six-legged razorback high on blood and gas fumes, Satan’s Satyrs ply the kind of doom-fuzz domination and full-tilt horror boogie that exists about a million miles outside the realm of giving a fuck. Teenage mastermind Clayton Burgess recorded and played every instrument on the band’s 2012 debut, Wild Beyond Belief!, while he was still in high school. Inspired by Blue Cheer, Electric Wizard and a slew of sleazy 60s/70s cult biker flicks like The Glory Stompers, Werewolves On Wheels and Satan’s Sadists, Burgess eventually found kindred spirits in guitarist Jarrett Nettnin and drummer Stephen Fairchild, who joined the SS fold in time to appear on last year’s Hammond-drenched brain-boiler Die Screaming.

Lykantropi - Black Old Stone

From the dark woods of Värmland, Sweden, sounds slightly melancholic werewolf rock when album debutants Lykantropi delivers seventies-pop-folk-rock-doom. Enchanting female and male vocals in symbiosis consolidates the lycanthropic touch painted by diverse, catchy melodies. New, fresh, old music. Transformation is a descriptive term for the album which was recorded live in the studio and mastered by Martin Konie Ehrencrona (The Oath, In Solitude, Dundertåget). The main inspiration is found in the '70s rock, but consists of an equal part of their embracing of nature and its force, dark as light.

SRC - Up All Night

SRC had their own distinct sound and unique vision- heavy psychedelic rock mixed with hard rock overtones with Quackenbush's lead guitar style really contributing to their overall sonics. Quackenbush's technique was incredible, especially the way he used feedback and incorporated it into searing solos that are so expressive and can range from melodic to chaotic in a matter of seconds in the same song. This made the band stand out, although the other band members shouldn't be underestimated since it's when they all got together that the songs took form. Their music is the kind you get lost in, you forget yourself and your surroundings just melt away. Their sound reflected influences like Cream, The Pretty Things, The Who and The Yardbirds and other British bands. They mixed that influence with the sound of peers from the local music scene (the Stooges,MC5 and the Amboy Dukes) to come up with something very unique and creative. http://www.furious.com/perfect/src.html

Kabbalah - Presence

Spectral Ascent is much more than something to bob your head to pleasantly, so if you’re looking for something that has many facets and that you can really sink your mental teeth into, this one’s for you. Concurrent to the occultic themes on the album, there is a clear element for anyone really to grab onto; Spectral Ascent has multiple layers. On the album’s eighth track, Kabbalah’s singer puts the listener in the position of the character that was introduced in the first track and has been maintained, in various capacities, throughout the album, singing, “You keep searching for an answer; You’ve watched the darkness fall; And you heed its siren call; That shadow falls upon you.” The album ends on a slightly more upbeat note musically speaking than it opened up with. The production sounds at times as though it is from decades ago, when the musical influences that converge in Spectral Ascent began to make their mark in the modern era. Although it could thereby feel antiquated, it works well. http://newnoisemagazine.com/review-kabbalah-spectral-ascent/#
