Syberia - Resiliency (2016)

Band: Syberia
Album title: Resiliency
Release date: 22 April 2016
Label: Debemur Morti Productions

With Resiliency the band documents a mental and spiritual transformation where darkness and light are both essential to the transmission of ideas. The four members of Syberia don't use any words, just two guitars, bass and drums, ok, that's nothing new for post-"xy" genre, but where some of the bands just sink into mellowness, Syberia enthuses with ability to provoke exceptional emotions regardless of the song´s length. The music of this quartet needs your full devotion and relaxation, even though it won't be annoying if played as a background music. Everything is pretty cinematic, Syberia combines swathes of yearning, crashing crescendos with the serene and pastoral. All of the tracks have some kind of a very reliable pathos, everything is well connected, keeping the listener in some sort of a trans and continued suspense.

Band: Mütterlein
Album title: Orphans Of The Black Sun
Release date: 22 April 2016
Label: Sundust Records

Truly insane, wicked, haunting and absolutely unique is the debut album of French act Mütterlein. The band is conducted by vocalist, songwriter, composer and performer Marion Leclercq, joined by multi-instrumentalist Christophe Chavanon, and the two describe their musical output as witch wave. Mütterlein on their debut album presents six tracks clocking in around 35 minutes, but what minutes those are, there's not a single moment where the intensity is lacked, nor there's a part without emotional outpours, even if at moments it might sound a bit minimalistic, there's no single moment without being thrown into some kind of a bewitching magical world. Orphans Of The Black Sun is not an easy album, at least after a first couple of listens it might be even disturbing, but the whole thing might drastically change if you immerse yourself a bit more into this musical creation. With Mütterlein's sound we are like being trapped in some sort of underground world or dungeon. This is an opus that conveys sadness and anguish of being, as beautiful as the biting cold of winter, yet as gloomy as a funeral of a loved one. It's all in one - sadistic, dreadful and mesmerizing!
