Hope by Mord’A’Stigmata – A Comment

mas-hope

Out this Friday, February 17th 2017, is Hope by Mord’A’Stigmata via Pagan Records.

A band from Poland that is in between black metal, blackened death metal and post metal, Mord’A’Stigmata offers us a journey of dark emotions, which the main brain of the band, Static, tries to explain in the brief following citation, that their music is more than simple black metal songs:

[…] This is what this record is about. It is hard for me to call the music on “Hope” black metal. Anyway, I get the impression that the term is frequently abused and given a wrong meaning nowadays. As usual, we came up with a mixture of styles to be named by people wiser than us. We play more with hearts than with heads and do not intend to play someone we are not. And that’s actually what “Hope” is, the music of pure emotions.

In all, Hope by Mord’A’Stigmata is a good dark album of four songs (which the majority runs for near or over 12 minutes) and, along with a great other band, Obscure Sphinx, they are touring this spring to present their new album, and we hope, they’ll have great success as such album deserves.

A must to have on your playlist, available on Bandcamp.

‘The Cursed Travails of the Demeter’ by Vircolac – A Comment

vircolac_demeter_ep_cover

Out last Halloween, October 31st 2016, was released ‘The Cursed Travails of the Demeter‘ EP by Vircolac via Dark Descent Records in North America and on Sepulchral Voice in Europe.

A blackened death metal act from Dublin, Ireland, Vircolac delivers a powerful short album with four aggressive songs that dishevels and is sure to please fans of black metal.

Although in the genre of blackened death metal, Vircolac wants to bring back the essence of death metal and fuse its origins in what would give us ‘The Cursed Travails of the Demeter‘, a cruise that both Dracula and Vircolac wants us to take in the journey of death metal from its beginning up until now.

A shorty to please many, ‘The Cursed Travails of the Demeter‘ EP by Vircolac is available on Bandcamp.

‘Due Diaboli Et Apocalypse’ by SevenSins – A Comment

157-1

Out last September 20th 2016 was ‘Due Diaboli Et Apocalypse‘ by SevenSins via Satanath Records and MurdHer Records.

A symphonic blackened death metal album by an amazing band from Kazakhstan that delivers powerfully like Dimmu Borgir and its siblings.

Formed in 2008 we are left wondering if we’ll hear more about this amazing band. Info is scarse and obscure but we do know that they sing about the medival times of their country and its alentours. Fortunately available on Bandcamp.

‘Brotherhood Of Chaos’ by Sectasys – A Comment

156-1

Out last September 19th 2016 was ‘Brotherhood Of Chaos‘ by Sectasys via Satanath Records and Evil’s Records.

A blackened death metal album from Venezuela, ‘Brotherhood Of Chaos‘ by Sectasys delivers a powerful sound of darkness with speedy drums and melodic riffs. We sense a thrashy inspiration also in ‘Brotherhood Of Chaos‘.

Fans of black metal will enjoy the album and fans of death metal will love its blackness. Available on Bandcamp.

Out today November 10th 2016 is self-released ‘Invasion Of The Tentacube‘ by Xoth.

A band from Seattle, USA, these former members of PHALGERON, WARBRINGER, and LECHEROUS NOCTURNE are united to present us their second full-length album, ‘Invasion Of The Tentacube‘; a delicious combination of death metal, black metal and thrash metal that can be summed as a blackened death metal album.

Well played, well written and well produced, ‘Invasion Of The Tentacube‘ is a great album that might project Xoth into the spheres of stardom, as the album has all the ingredients to be very popular among the metal heads.

Available on Bandcamp.
