In the spotlight


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 - October 2017

Band: Andras
Album title: Reminiszenzen...
Release date: 20 October 2017
Label: Einheit Produktionen

This seventh album of Germans Andras, Reminiszenzen..., is simply fantastic! A wonderful experience unprecedented in the history of this band. It's an honour to enjoy these 67 minutes of pure 90s style in a very well engineered context, yet with passionate lyrics which deal with nature in a spiritual way and the heresies of humanity when it considers itself superior to everything. The tracks are direct and deep with a stunningly ethereal atmosphere, yet with a demonic aggression in each of them. This guys are legends, they are in another dimension, they acquired with this monumental work of art a place between the gods of black metal. A masterful keyboard that match with other instruments and perfectly sets up this orchestral landscape of incessant beauty. There are many truly epic parts with clean vocals which are interspersed with aggressiveness in perfect simbiosis. Dirty mouths that could possibly say that the band is moving away from the traditional, can swallow soap. The guitar passages are heavy and still often melodic, the riffs are mesmerizing. Pure darkened art with bewitching melancholy and real passion, this is the kind of an album for those who want to embark on a journey full of passion and divine consciousness of nature and the relations of mankind with his place in this chain.

Band: Antimatter
Album title: The Judas Table
Release date: 9 October 2015
Label: Prophecy Productions

Since the departure of one of the Antimatter's founders, Duncan Patterson, (former bassist/songwriter of Anathema), the remaining member Mick Moss brought Antimatter to the state of being one of the essential bands when it comes to melancholic and atmospheric rock. After two stunning albums, the groundbreaking Leaving Eden (2007) and Fear Of A Unique Identity (2012), both albums set new standards for the dark atmospheric alternative rock music, now Mick's Antimatter is back with a new very introspective album, The Judas Table. Following the steps of before mentioned two albums, the new opus is another proof how to blend together melancholic art rock, goth, atmospheric rock and highly emotional acoustic pieces. The Judas Table is a conceptual album in which Mick Moss sings about his personal experiences, about betrayal, disappointment, self-doubt, and anybody who ever suffered from betrayal on a personal level will without doubt relate to this album, but not only... Mick Moss' battle with his inner demons might seem to be now in an equilibrium, but we who love the music this man does will hope that this battle in his thoughts might never end and Antimatter will still be exploring this intimate and sad side of personal struggle to survive amongst all of evil selfish souls who were born just to cause harm and desperation. All in all, Antimatter created another gem full of amazing soul and mind shaking atmospheric songs!
