In the spotlight

SOULGRINDER

One of the most surprising returns in the goth rock scene this year is the one by Swedish cult band Soulgrinder. The band recently released a stunning new EP named Ressurection after almost 18 years of absence, which sounds even darker than anything this band did before, the ambiance on all of the four songs is so very obscure, with "old school" sound and almost suffocating atmosphere. There's no doubt that Soulgrinder has made a mark in the gothic music genre with its unique sound, which is not your typical gothic rock, but it blends elements from various dark music styles like industrial, doom, dark electro and so called dungeon synth, by often using kind of an avantgarde approach. Growing up in a small town in Sweden, the brothers Daniel and Niclas were fascinated with music from an early age. Moving from contemporary rock bands like Sweet and Kiss into heavier acts, they found true inspiration in more avant-garde and original music like Celtic Frost’s epic album Into The Pandemonium and the Italian-Slovenian experimental rock band Devil Doll. The influences from all of these were used as a base for the brothers’ own musical journey. Guitar and piano lessons helped them kick off their song writing, which was used in various band constellations to come.

Album of the month - March 2017

Band: Phallus Dei
Album title: Black Dawn
Release date: 17 March 2017
Label: Dark Vinyl Records

Black Dawn is the latest release from Phallus Dei; the veteran German industrial/darkwave project with an extensive discography who are currently celebrating their 25th anniversary since inception. Noted as "one of the most important industrial/darkwave projects of the 90s", they certainly do not fail to deliver with Black Dawn. The crashing of rough steel melds with the distorted drone sound adding tension to the overall scene as buildings begin to fracture and the primal chaos is unleashed as it has been so many times before. Crashing cymbals and electric squeaks carry the fleet onward, further into the darkness and the haze. The overall sound and use of texture is perfected throughout the album. The sound is thick, deep and satisfying and the texture is raw. Definitely a case of 'less is more' with this album where the minimum is maximum and major concern is focused on the minor details. There is also a great variety of styles and approaches utilised throughout the album which separates each track from the others without breaking character. The base structure of each track is simple and repetitive while somehow avoiding becoming monotonous. The music is walking a fine line, like a tightrope walker effortlessly crossing between two buildings without hesitation or reservation. There is also the added variety of some well placed saxophone instrumental sections that really lift the listener to unexpected levels of appreciation.

Video of the week

Mils - Escape

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Luciferian Light Orchestra
Album title: Luciferian Light Orchestra
Release date: 30 April 2015
Label: Adulruna Records

Christofer Johnsson suprises with something truly special, a new band named Luciferian Light Orchestra. It stands for everything that Christofer composed throughout the years and somehow didn't fit on any of the Therion albums. Luciferian Light Orchestra' debut is even though being an elegant vintage sounding album still fresh. When you think that the music could became too complex, psychedelic or perverse, Luciferian Light Orchestra immediately kicks off with such a catchy structure that you'll be in an instant put again into the corridor of this musical occultistic, yet conceptual journey. Take off your dress and join Luciferian Light Orchestra in the sabbath!
