In the spotlight


Karolina Urbaniak is the co-owner of Infinity Land Press along with Martin Bladh, multimedia artist and musician (IRM, Skin Area). I first encountered Karolina Urbaniak last summer when she was on tour with IRM. Her unique sense of fashion burned the memory into my mind. A very dark yet elegant look. This dark elegance seems to dominate many aspects of her existence. Karolina works within a variety of different media formats. From photography, to moving art, to book publications, Karolina imbibes her unique style into every aspect of these works.
Teaming up with Martin Bladh certainly seems like a smart decision. Both of these artists share in that dichotomy between elegance and darkness. Though we often see Martin take his works to more personal extremes. As Infinity Land Press, the duo have already accomplished a great deal. Starting up a press, which publishes books with extremely unique and niche content could seem like a gamble, but Karolina and Martin have already shown a great deal of impressive work within this arena and the fans have been showing their support for it.


Album of the month - October 2016

Band: NU:N
Album title: Naked Until Noema
Release date: 31 October 2016
Label: Black Genesis Records

After their rather mellow debut, Nothing Unveils Nothing, but still an album that reached almost a cult status among the followers of the genre, the Portuguese trio NU:N returns in such a great style with their sophomore full-lenght, its name is Naked Until Noema. This new album is in one word - transcedental! It perfectly captures the pivotal essence of goth rock, it's dark, mythical, obscure and while listening to it transcends time, space and even perception. Francisco, T.M. and Pedro have composed eleven diverse tracks that are so very haunting and captivating at the same time that you'll most likely not even notice when those 56 minutes of playing time go by. Naked Until Noema is a clear statement that borders inside this rather narrow genre can be crossed, expanded and overthrown, but still remaining goth in its primal essence. The Portuguese trio emerges in a new proportion of sound and writting exploration bringing them closer to themselves, and thus invites every dark soul out there to join them on this journey full of deviations and variations, where different ambiances, dark soundscapes, from typical gothic rock to almost industrial segments, ritualistic drama, dark theatre and occasional strange but so appealing, almost with kind of exotic Arabic scent enriched melodies, will keep the listener hooked for quite some time.

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Terra Tenebrosa
Album title: The Reverses
Release date: 17 June 2016
Label: Debemur Morti Productions

Terra Tenebrosa is not a typical extreme metal band at all, nor it's dark ambient and absolutely it's not hardcore, sludge or anything similar, its creation is a well structured chaos, it's void and Dante's inferno transformed into music. Yes, it's avantgarde, psychedelic, it's black, dark and utterly suffocating, but yet it's something more, something that is beyond anything done so far. The Reverses is an unique piece of organized chaos, a cinematic journey, one of the most evil soundscapes ever. The Reverses is that kind of an album that needs to be heard many times and by every consequent listen you will discover more and more hidden things being disguised in this darkened psychotic musical gem, and maybe if you'll be persistent enough the hidden world of those compositions will slowly unveil all of its creepy beauty. A chaotic masterpiece!
