[Dark] UNKNOWN

NONE

The USA based ambient/industrial, neo-folk solo act None - a tribute to all the divine - was founded in 2015 by musician and songwriter Nicholas Mendiola (Ex-Plague Phalanx, Thangorodrim and Awakened Abyss). For Nicholas, None is the deity of his creation and the eternal version of himself. As he had stated for the interview (webzine From Corners Unknown), the purpose and mission of his contemporary life were to discover himself as the true voice and host that None speaks through - and to leave the word and mark of None upon the world not only to affect other present beings of the earth and multiverse but to leave traces for future lives to again discover their true identity.

None's music will be presented on the radio show [Dark] UNKNOWN this Thursday, 3 June at 22.00 [CEST] on Terra Relicta radio.

SUFFER YOURSELF - New Album Out Today

Funeral doom institution Suffer Yourself conspires with Aesthetic Death to release Rip Tide, the band's third album, on 25 June. Dark, morose, dirgeful– a maelstrom of intense doom death. Suffer Yourself have returned – following the acclaimed and respected 2016 release of Ectoplasm – with a new album that has taken the band to a new level of composition, construction and expression.

What immediately stands out is the darker death metal tones found within Rip Tide – those tones signified in the deathly doom of acts such as Esoteric or Evoken – however, Suffer Yourself creates its own space, with the maturity from over a decade of craft and unblinkered vision.

Throughout Rip Tide, there is an undercurrent of suffocating drone – with all tracks being built upon the claustrophobic foundations of a drone score created by Belarusian artist Ugasanie. From that point, the expressive composition adds layers of beautifully dissonant guitar work that has a notable 90s death metal feel to it. Within that, there is an almost cinematic scope to the album – with sounds and samples embroidered into the music. The final touch is delivered with a mesmerising cello part – that is wonderfully woven into the tracks and adds such depth. Even though the feel of the album is the same throughout there is a distinct difference between all tracks.

All these elements are brought together, to create a maelstrom, a master class in underground extreme death doom. Suffer Yourself has crafted a wonderful album and have shown the world that they now sit amongst the best of the extreme doom genre. The fragment from the upcoming 3rd album Rip Tide awaits you below. Link
