In the spotlight

AEON SABLE

It was back in 2010 when a new beast emerged in Essen, Germany, by two extraordinary artists Din-Tah Aeon and Nino Sable. Named Aeon Sable it forever changed everything that we thought we knew about dark rock and goth music. The creativity and dexterity of the two musicians, involved in several projects of the German underground scene since 1997, has allowed them to travel to seductively-surprising territory creating an alluring, dark atmosphere that continues to command the attention of the fans in Europe and worldwide. Din-Tah Aeon (guitars, programming, production, instrumentalist-songwriter) and Nino Sable (vocals, lyrics, production, songwriter, graphics and media designer) started Aeon Sable as a studio project only and released the debut album named Per Aspera Ad Astra in February 2010 through Af-music. The album, which was still pretty much influenced by goth rock giants like Fields Of The Nephilim and The Sisters Of Mercy, especially the songs like goth rock monuments "Exodus" or "Sever", on the other side already showed some unique and modern elements ("Agnosia", "At The Edge Of The World") that divided the gothic rock scene, goth elitists never really accepted the sound of Aeon Sable, but those who found goth/dark rock becoming a bit boring and repetitive, gave Aeon Sable a chance.

Cradle Of Filth - The Manticore And Other Horrors: What more to say about this British masters of extreme gothic metal that hasn't been said before? This album can easily cope with their most praised albums like  Nymphetamine for example. Cradle Of Filth are back in all their glory! Link: Website


Enslaved - RIITIIR: Another masterpiece from those Norway based premium progressive black metallers. A bit more difficult, even more progressive and complex than their ultimate previous masterwork Axioma Ethica Odini, but still one hell of an album. One of the best extreme metal albums of the year 2012, absolutely! Link: Website


Lacrimosa - Revolution: Masters of gothic Lacrimosa are back with their eleventh studio album. Revolution is not an easy listen, it needs to be devoted into it and only then it offers amazing sonic experience. This album also shows kind of revolution in Lacrimosa's sound, as it is much heavier than last few albums of theirs. Read a review HERE. Link: Website


My Dying Bride - A Map Of All Our Failures: Gloom & doom like we are used from legends My Dying Bride. Epic soundscapes of sorrow and pain, darkness and beauty. The band proves once again that they haven't lost their touch after strange ambiental Evinta. Link: Website


Tiamat - The Scarred People: One of the most anticipated albums of 2012. It was worth waiting for this one. In its core this is one of the darkest Tiamat albums, but paradoxically also the one that holds huge amount of positive power. Atmospheric gothic rock and doom metal at its best! Read a review HERE. Link: Website


Valkiria - Here The Day Comes: Black metal, gothic and doom metal marvelous mixture. Such an outstanding musicianship cannot be missed and beside The Foreshadowing they should take the leading role in  Italian dark music spectrum. It would really be a disgrace to miss this dark gem. Read a review HERE. Link: Website
