In the spotlight


The third wave of gothic rock is spreading its wings more and more, and one of the most visible new acts, who already gained quite a lot of appreciation in the underground and already achived some kind of a cult status are Portuguese trio NU:N. The band was formed in early 2014 and their highly acclaimed debut album titled Nothing Unveils Nothing was released in December that same year through Black Genesis Records. After the release of the album the band had a fruitful year, played many notable shows, especially their sets at SGM Fest 2015 in Madrid and their appearance at the Sacrosanct Festival in UK the same year left a huge mark and fans of gothic rock welcomed this band with open arms and darkened hearts. After having a productive 2015 recording new material included on compilations (one of them was a tribute to Brazilian legends Das Projekt), digital singles and performing live in charismatic European festivals and venues, the band began working on this new material as far back as April 2016, and on July 2016 have returned to Vulcanalia Studio to record their second album named Naked Until Noema.


Album of the month - September 2016

Band: Various Artists
Album title: Nyarlathotep: A Cryo Chamber Collaboration
Release date: 27 September 2016
Label: Cryo Chamber

Cryo Chamber has released a giant with this one. On Nyarlathotep, Cryo Chamber releases a more ambitious addition to their Lovecraftian Mythos series. Nyarlathotep takes into account everything Cryo Chamber learned on the previous two outings. Yet, it pushes the limits even further. Nyarlathotep consists of 26 artists. Cryo Chamber artists, as well as a handful of artists from outside the label bring forth a whole new tale. The use of field recordings on this album seems to reach magnificent heights. The use of so many different instruments within the album adds yet another layer of Earthly realism to the mix. Often these instruments take on a Near Eastern quality, usually of the Egyptian variety. This gives us a sense of location as well as a mental image of Nyarlathotep dressed in the garb of a great ancient pharaoh. From concept, to studio integration, to technique, to mastering, and everything in between, Nyarlathotep hits the intended mark. With each of these Lovecraftian Mythos collaborations, somehow these artists seem to keep topping themselves. Nyarlathotep is one more step up the ladder, one more masterpiece from a label that keeps pushing the boundaries, without alienating the origins of the genre. Nyarlathotep is an absolute must have album for any dark ambient fan. Over the three hours of music, there is never a dull moment, everything is orchestrated to perfection.

Video of the week

Nordjevel - Djevelen I Nord

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Atrium Carceri
Album title: Metropolis
Release date: 9 June 2015
Label: Cryo Chamber

Metropolis is above all a very dark meditative journey, locked out from the illusion and takes place entirely in our former home within darkened sky and gargantuan citadels where the man once ruled as gods. Metropolis is in strong connection with the previous proper album The Untold which was released in 2013 and with which Simon took us to the origins, to the primordial metropolis and into the void where the creator abandoned us. The new epic output follows the expedition to uncover the truth about the factions in control, what happened to the long lost architect and how to open a portal back into the colorful illusion the ignorant call home. Metropolis is one of those climaxes of everything taged dark ambient. This time Simon went quite out of the genre borders and created such a stunning work of art that will leave a deep mark within the scene. With such compositions where the attention for details is essential, where subtle layers offer an otherworldy experience, yet everything is well produced and comes with a very nice artwork and just calls for many repetitions. Metropolis is a prime example how to make dark ambient music flowing and melodic, strenuous and adventurous, strong, lush and emotional, almost solemn in its very essence.
