In the spotlight

SAGITTARIUS

One of the most important musical projects inside the neoclassical/folk noir scene must be the German or rather European music ensemble Sagittarius. The project was born back in 1998, formed by Cornelius Waldner who felt the urge and need to work more intensively with classical music and soundscapes and to musically interpret traditional pieces of literature dear to him. Until now, Sagittarius released three full-lenght albums through labels like Cold Spriing Records (UK) and Renovatio Verlag (Germany), plus several limited edition releases. The first two releases of Sagittarius were two demo cassettes, Im Zeichen der Sonne (1999) and Fragmente (2002), soon after that Sagittarius released the debut album titled Die Grosse Marina in 2003 through Renovatio Verlag. The album is a conceptual composition based on Ernst Jünger's novel 'On The Marble Cliffs', but should not be understood as an attempt to put the entire book into music, instead, selected scenes and passages were picked out and inspired Sagittarius during the process of creation. Apart from six own compositions, the album also included musical pieces by Ion Manzatu, Simion Lefter and Ludwig van Beethoven.

Album of the month - December 2017

Band: Minas Morgul
Album title: Kult
Release date: 1 December 2017
Label: Trollzorn

German combo Minas Morgul are back stronger than ever, and they should be, because the band which formed back in 1997 is celebrating their 20th anniversary, and why not make a colossal work boldly titled Kult. So, if you have guts to name an album with such a name then you must be pretty self confident of what you have to offer and Minas Morgul are, for a reason. Minas Morgul create an astounding dense wall of sound, the atmosphere is often dark and poignant, with interesting gloomy synths put in the background. When the soundscapes became almost too linear the band nicely inserts some elements that you won't expect, like some clean vocals, acoustic guitars, orchestrations and keeps constantly everything at high dynamics. The album has a certain theatrical feeling, it's a sonic crusade of primordial force and Teutonic rage. You can find in Minas Morgul destructive pagan/black metal sound many different elements, from driving "made in Germany" thrash in the vein of old Kreator or Sodom for example, typical black metal, doom metal, a bit of post-black metal, death metal, to symphonic metal and some folk elements, but everything is throughout consistent, absolutely heavy and has a very addictive flow.

Video of the week

Primordial - Stolen Years

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Horror Vacui
Album title: Return Of The Empire
Release date: 26 October 2014 (digital)/25 April 2015 (EU vinyl release)
Label: Avant! Records, Legion Of The Dead Records, Black Water Records

Treading on the musical and cultural border that links dark punk with goth, Horror Vacui is one of the most singular additions to the current roster of sinister rock bands. With its debut album, In Darkness You Will Feel Alright (2012), they already managed to recover what moths had eaten over decades of boring replicas. They merge elements from deathrock, post-punk and gothic rock with a strong personality into songs that keep intact the band’s punk belligerence. In that sense, Horror Vacui recalls the days when groups like Vex, Lords Of The New Church, UK Decay or The Dark - just to mention a few - freely moved among those shadowy punk-rooted territories, just before they splitted apart into distinct genres. Horror Vacui regains the bygone grandeur of sinister rock from a honest D.I.Y. instinct.
