In the spotlight

MERCIFUL NUNS

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 - March 2018


Band: Auri
Album title: Auri
Release date: 23 March 2018
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

The encompassing talent of Finnish composer and virtuoso Tuomas Holopainen is really outstanding, not only that he's the founder and the main man behind most of the compositions of one of the most influential and world’s most successful symphonic metal bands of our time, Nightwish, and innovative pioneer for an entire genre. Together with exceptional vocalist, Tuomas' wife Johanna Kurkela and his band mate Troy Donockley, went on a musical adventure called Auri. Auri in its essence is not a metal band, far from that, you won't find any heavy guitars in here, this is simply another musical world, it's dreamy, ethereal and very emotional atmospheric music that is hard to categorize, but certainly the elements of folk and Celtic music are most evident. This is a staggering dynamic sonic journey from start to finish, it's the result of a shared passion of three magnificient musicians who united to celebrate a kind of epic-romantic ethno pop that seems to float in quaint spheres, which are intangible yet unleash multi-faceted soundscapes filled with powerful imagery. It's like a soundtrack made up of some of the most magical and surreal moments that will for sure take the listener into the depths, and in there a world of wonder and miracles awaits behind the mirrors.

Video of the week

Behemoth - O Father O Satan O Sun!

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Saille
Album title: Gnosis
Release date: 13 March 2017
Label: Code666

Gnosis is the fourth album from the Belgian symphonic black metallers Saille and the band  brings with this new offering pure fascination, it captures and hold one's attention from the beginning until the end of the journey. Gnosis is a concept album which explores the Promethean ideal along with its Luciferian counterpart. Each track is unique, bringing avant-garde elements mixed with pure black metal. The symphonic side blends just perfect. The shift that happens time to time in the flow of energy in the songs will not allow you to lose your attention over it. Lovers of Dimmu Borgir and Emperor can't let this masterpiece get unnoticed.
