Very first Digi CD edition of this obscure album. Dark, deeply personal and original interpretation of Black Metal art. Given life by Ukraine’s Propaganda (Lucifugum HQ) during the Russian invasion. Any sales will be donated back to the source in support of their resistance. Truly a matter of life and death…

Italian cassette import! With one long suite per side, expect tribal ritual atmospheres, creepy soundscapes, dark ambience, Oriental spirituality and magick…

Has it really been seven barren years since the “Idle Stones” LP was revealed? Really? Granted, there were a couple of stirring singles in the intervening spell such as that special split appearance with The Wandering Midget on the Pariah Child imprint. Still, a long time has passed. But the wait was not in vain, no, because this third full-length album, “Endless Garden” witnesses our Finnish trio in full bloom. The sound both organic and punchy. These songs brimming with life. Collectively, they feel like a breezy spring day with proggy folk hues shimmering in the sunlight and a gentle fragrance of melancholy lingering in the air. Distilled in old oak barrels, they have fermented long beyond humble doomed beginnings yet retained that unmistakably personal character we cherish. This is a culmination of their craft, and for me, truly irresistible at that. Drink deep the heady ambience. It will intoxicate again and again.

Five albums in, there should be little doubt about what to expect. This is US doom and gloom delivered with heart and sorrow. Consistent. Powerful. Repeatable.

Reborn anew, the Coven enters the next alchemical stage of existence. With fiery intent intact, change is unavoidable as they collectively shape-shift into a yet-unexplored aspect of who they are…

No mere repetition of their debut, this new offering by the Italian luminaries swerves far and wide through dark progressive psychedelia. The opening track alone almost clocks up thirteen minutes and this daring trait recurs more than once. Brimming with lucid confidence, there is much to absorb. Embrace the experience…

Not so much as life after Thunderstorm as a fleeting parallel excursion into a dense and mystical tradition of Epic Doom. There was very little fanfare then or since. But the sombre music remains. And stalks still..

Having been thoroughly impressed by the solemn experience of “The Room” it’s time to venture back in time for that self-titled debut we unknowingly missed. Thick, ominous and unforgiving, theirs is a vivid pictorial form of Doom. Not for the faint of heart…

A visionary story with a cinematic flavour. A timeless journey conceived between spirituality and passion. Featuring Samantha Stella as singer, musician and lyricist with Nicola Manzan as guest violinist, the album unfolds in a desert landscape where medieval European mystical influences blend with the flavour of the American West to weave a gloomy psychedelia…
