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 - May 2017

Band: Sólstafir
Album title: Berdreyminn
Release date: 26 May 2017
Label: Season Of Mist

Sólstafir with their highly recognizable and unique sound are absolutely hard to categorize, many have tried and almost everybody comes up with a different description, but yet it's pretty sure that if Pink Floyd, Bjork or Sigur Rós would be making metal or hard rock music than something similar to this would come up. Berdreyminn is a masterpiece by all means, just like it was Ótta (2014) or Svartir Sandar (2011), there's not much to add. The band sticks to the approved formula, yet on every their album we can find kind of new levels of atmospheric soundscapes, masterfully inducted surprises, in a word a whole new world to discover which is still familiar to those who were listening to any of Sólstafir's albums before. Sólstafir offer some of the best elements taken from each of their previous albums, yet spicing it up with some new things, they simply pushed it on the next level. Sólstafir's Berdreyminn is eclectic by a conscious choice to make feelings audible and transform taste as well as texture to sound. Berdreyminn is an adventure, still pretty dark album and beside extravagant instrumentations, only intense feelings of longing, joy, pain, nostalgia and melancholy take over the senses here and leads the listener into uncharted territories.

Video of the week

End Of Green - The Door

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Abbath
Album title: Abbath
Release date: 22 January 2016
Label: Season Of Mist

Immortal is back, in a new shape and with a new name, hailing under the name of the previous frontman of Immortal, Abbath Doom Occulta. The album feels like a journey back to the old glory days of Immortal, it reminds to classic albums like At The Heart Of Winter and Sons Of Northern Darkness. Melodic and fast tunes go perfect along with the bombastic music. The famous Immortal sound is certainly there in the fingers of Abbath's guitar playing. The guitar sound is warm and fuzzy, the songs feel alive and very powerful. They are like a journey into the mountains.
