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 - January 2017

Band: Au Champ Des Morts
Album title: Dans La Joie
Release date: 27 January 2017
Label: Debemur Morti Productions

Au Champ Des Morts surprises a lot, their music is in no way just another typical post-black metal thing, there are many elements hidden and nicely blended inside their compositions. Just to see which bands are cited as their main influences tells a lot, Bathory, The Sisters Of Mercy, And Also The Trees, Celtic Frost, Alcest, The Devil's Blood, pretty varied list of artists... This album is a healing journey for darkened souls who want to explore the beauty of darkness. Dans La Joie is one of the best albums from this specific sector lately, it grabs your soul, heart and mind in an instant and enchains you with its multilayered yet aggressive and powerful sound so much that is impossible to remain cold blooded. The band makes such a varied sound, when going in full blast it's mostly comprised of shimmering effects-laden yet very intense tremolo picked guitars, melodic riffs, dense and thunderous, very technical drumming, blasting bass lines, rich gloomy ambiental synths and agonizing obsessed with the devil shrieks by Stefan. Dans La Joie has it all, it's dark, deeply personal but very vital record, is an interweaving of many dualities like transience and temporality, aggression and emotion, aging and aesthetics, depression and delirium, dreams and dust, well forged in analog sound and integrity and backed up by solid musical foundations.

Video of the week

My Own Ghost - Life On Standby

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.
