In the spotlight


The word of goth music and dark rock in general wouldn't be what it's without the legendary German band Garden Of Delight, a band which is one of the main acts for the development of second wave of gothic rock in the early 90s. Who on this planet that is into goth doesn't know the cult albums like Enki’s Temple, Sargonid Seal or Necromanteion IV, just to name a few? Then, the band which started its path in 1990 called it quits in 2008 and then another gem of dark music emerged in 2010, Merciful Nuns, the only real successor to Garden Of Delight. Even though that Merciful Nuns emerged from the ashes of the legendary Garden Of Delight - most of the similarity ends here. Artaud said: "The intension to split up Garden Of Delight and go on with the Merciful Nuns was to create something darker and deeper as Garden Of Delight ever could do." Merciful Nuns has evolved from leading the resurgence of goth to becoming a unique genre in itself, into something that got a label occult post goth. The three Germans, masterminded by the iconic Artaud Seth, has now just released through Solar Lodge their album number ten, titled Anomaly X, which is also the final album for this exceptional band.


Album of the month - November 2018

Band: Aeon Sable
Album title: Aether
Release date: 2 November 2018
Label: Solar Lodge

Aeon Sable on this new album offer one of the most elaborate and elegant stylistical symbiosis that we ever heard. The band which was primarly influenced by the likes such as The Sisters Of Mercy and Fields Of The Nephilim expanded through the years their sound into directions that not many would dare to do so. It's obvious that Moonspell, Tiamat, Draconian and Type Of Negative to name a few have played their part here, but Aeon Sable throw into the sonic palette from album to album more and more of doom metal, post-rock/metal, blackgaze, black metal and now even a bit of cosmic drone. Aeon Sable know perfectly how to make songs that slowly progress and build up the tension. Aether is an epic album, a true monument that collapses the borders between goth rock and metal, some say this is post-goth, but no matter how you define or label it, Aeon Sable with it reached into the absolute heights. Aeon Sable has always stood for big themes and deep black abysses that are now more than ever revealed in the vast soundscapes of Aether. This is destined to be a cult album!
