GNAW THEIR TONGUES - Crucial Blast Confirms Multiple 2015 Titles From Dutch Black/Doom Entity

Dutch avant-black/doom entity, Gnaw Their Tongues, will release through Crucial Blast multiple titles in 2015, beginning with the January discharging of Collected Atrocities 2005-2008. For nearly a decade Gnaw Their Tongues, named after a particularly evocative passage from the Book Of Revelation, has been infecting the underground with a uniquely disturbing brand of chaotic heaviness. Fusing together malevolent, rumbling doom with rabid, noise-damaged aggression and blasts of fearsome orchestral power and industrial pandemonium, and draping these lurching, hellish dirges in an oppressive atmosphere thick with horror and despair, the intensely nightmarish music of Gnaw Their Tongues defies easy categorization. The sum of all Gnaw Their Tongues's construction and execution is the work of sole architect and madman, Mories, also known for other destructive output with Cloak Of Altering, Pyriphlegethon, De Magia Veterum, Aderlating, Mors Sonat, Pompidou, Dimlit Hate Cellar and others. Before the release of the band's Crucial Blast debut, An Epiphanic Vomiting Of Blood, in 2007, Gnaw Their Tongues crawled into the black metal/industrial underground via a number of ultra-limited EPs which quickly went out of print, and are now sought after by fans of the band's abject blackened horror. Collected Atrocities 2005-2008 is a new double CD anthology that gathers together essential, out-of-print early recordings from the band that span the first three years of Gnaw Their Tongues's existence, compiling the Prefering Human Skin Over Animal Fur, Horse Drawn Hearse and For All Slaves... A Song Of False Hope EPs, the material from the Static Hymnal compilation, and other rarities from the bowels of the Gnaw Their Tongues archive. Collected Atrocities 2005-2008 will hit the market on 26th January 2015. One of the tracks, "Glorification Of Rats", previously released on Prefering Human Skin Over Animal Fur EP is available for streaming below. Link

CRIMSON BLUE - New Album Out In November

Russian gothic metallers Crimson Blue will release on 17th November via My Kingdom Music their sophomore album entitled The Angelic Performance. With a weird idea of a keytar-equipped soprano as a frontwoman of a metal band may look amusing. When it comes to Crimson Blue with an 8 string guitar and bass tuned down to the subterranean depths, the idea gets even weirder and amusement evolves into thrill. Here we go. Mixing elements of gothic metal, nu-metal, art rock and every-crazy-thing that can be found in any genre Crimson Blue delivers you the brand new stuff, a modern music that is absolutely original, full of personality and amazing essence. The Russian act can be put in the same universe of bands like Lacuna Coil, Evanescence, A Perfect Circle and Nightwish. Album is available for pre-order at this location. Below you can check out the official album teaser. Link

GOLDEN APES - Acoustic Album Out Tomorrow

German gothic rockers Golden Apes after Riot, the latest official output from 2012, will release The Langsyne Litanies tomorrow ( 31st October) at last, for clearing the way for things to come. Inspired by their acoustic tour earlier that year the band chose 5 personal favourites from their canon to reinterpret them while looking back and rearrange them while taking a step forward, deliver them from the chronological dust and restructure their tonal nucleus. By using mainly acoustic instruments, like classic guitars, percussions, a cello, flutes and even a tuba, the process bore a soundscape wherein familiar sounds reflected in a new way, sloughed aurally and detached from any tense. Including 3 brand-new tracks The Langsyne Litanies became more than the planned EP, but an album that mirrors the band's versatility and their many facets in an unusual and impressing way. The Langsyne Litanies will be available as an limited edition (restricted to 333 copies) only through AF-music. Tracklist and cover artwork are below. Link

The Langsyne Litanies tracklist:
01. Devil
02. Rosary
03. Blind-Eyed Boy
04. Ferryman
05. The Archers
06. Digging Towers
07. White Days
08. That Infinity Called Man…

The clock stroke Mitternacht (English: midnight) and the queen of sorrow, enigmatic and spiritual visible ghost Anna-Varney Cantodea and her shadows woke up from eternal sleep and presented the 12th full length studio release by the always mournful Sopor Aeternus & The Enseble Of Shadows. There seems to be three aspects of endless sorrow on Mitternacht; one stripped of everything and just existing per sé, one slowly slipping into a world of deeply disturbing derangement and one, drawing a feeling you've reached a point when you are hurting so much, you can't even feel it; you can't shed a tear or say a word. You simply give into your pain, accept your surroundings and it brings you some inner peace and even a glimpse of joy. Anna-Varney's vocals are – as usual-  a big and important part of the overall ambiance, because her signature, dramatic, expressing style of singing is so unique and such a great part of Sopor's music. The symbiosis between delivered melodies and her darkish, twisted, sometimes wicked and at other occasions playful vocal work is impeccable and blends together in a perfect equilibrium. Its sundscapes portray the non compos mentis cycle of grief, pain and death, which travels slowly and anxiously into light, hope and life. It will open your old wounds and they will bleed again; it will awake your deepest fears and bring to surface your most painful memories, twisting the knife deeper into your bleeding heart and slowly dying soul.
