Melancholic Death Doom by a Danish duo that is melodious, poignant and somehow in search of the stars. That cosmic drift through Gothic undertones is certainly atypical. A mystery and maturity that elevates the experience beyond the pedestrian. The title and artwork suggest more too. Breathe deep and step into the chasm…

Billed as a Dutch Doom Noise trio, this debut album is a testament to suffering through the endless cycle of creation and destruction. The human voice a primal wordless scream piercing the layers of riffs and rhythms. Precise. Exacting. Disorientating. With two basses, no guitar, four expansive suites await.

The massive third full-length album, my personal favourite, remixed and remastered by Greg Chandler himself, is huge and all-consuming. Three side long tracks. Fodder for nightmares. No expense spared on this ridiculously high quality pressing.

A concept album, delivered as an esoteric ritual with dark ambient expression, in honour of Hekate, Goddess of Witchcraft. Genuinely haunting with sparse female vocals akin to a narration by Sandra Silver. The sound of the catacombs. Where the dead walk…

Doom Metal played the old way by standard bearers of the movement.

Serving as the spiritual background to esoteric music, this issue focuses on testimonies from Alphaxone, Black Death, Czlt, Enthroned, Forndom, Kadaitcha, Mork Tre, Nameless Conflagaration, Rhazuns, Secrets of the Moon, Umbrarum Tenebrae and Youth Iria, There are also many philosophical articles by Sean Woodward, Hierophant, Timothy Izykowski, Akhlys, Bathory Legion / Hermann Kopp, Grafvitnir and Svartsyn. Genuinely heavy on content!

Two years on, the trio presented a massive and multi-layered opus where each and every listen further reveals the depths of its sonic madness. Haunting, dreamier and even more progressive, the bewitching vocals beckon, seductive and alluring. Yes, the web has been spun and you, the fly, have little hope of evading it…

Almost ten years old, this daring trio transcended the occult rock movement with a thick, hazy atmosphere, hypnotic and hallucinatory, thanks in part to Nameless Void)(of Negative Plane) who supplies guitar and organ for the band. His guitar tone sounds like insects swarming underwater, part black metal and part otherworldly character. When combined with the simple rhythms and ghostly singing of bassist MAL and drummer V, this debut album was somehow transformed into a doomed, droning aural miasma that’s quite unlike anything else out there. It’s a surreal blend of the feminine, the devilish and the psychedelic, which epitomizes how this genre is supposed to sound: Rosemary’s Baby recast as a malignant musical opium dream. Timelessly, tirelessly cult!

The ritual dark ambient shaman returns with a meditative-trance double album with pronounced tribal elements. Five tracks are spread across both discs united by a common meaning. “When evil and violence fill the world, when people fall into barbarism and forget about virtue, spiritual degradation occurs – the era of Kali-yuga comes. Realizing the inevitability of the end and the subsequent beginning, a person finds peace.” Again, limited to 108 hand-numbered copies with naturally aged material and soft Indian incense…
