• Blending elements of contemporary AOR, melodic rock, and Djent, BLACK ORCHID EMPIRE presents a progressive sound that is as polished as it is technical, as fresh as it is familiar, and as melodic as it is hard hitting.
Since their debut in 2016, the London-based trio’s star has been on the rise as they corner the active rock market in the U.K. Now, with ‘Tempus Veritas’, the band is ready to take it to the next level. Conceptually, the album is a collection of stories that seeks to find compelling imaginary narratives hidden away in history as we know it.
If previous ops ‘Semaphore’ was an album of Sci-Fi, this is an album of Hi-Fi.
  • The apocalypse is nigh and Finnish grindcore entity ROTTEN SOUND has crafted the perfect soundtrack to accompany humanity’s impending extinction. Aptly titled ‘Apocalypse,’ the band’s eighth studio album is dropping into 2023 with the same blistering speed and chaotic impetus as an asteroid searing through atmosphere and crushing everything upon impact. Each song delivering abrupt yet violent aftershocks, delivering an auditory assault with its unstoppable, seismic force.
  • Since 2009, STONED JESUS has served as one of Ukraine’s leading forces in heavy rock. Fuzzed-out riffs, driving bass lines, and maximum groove serve as the foundational elements of STONED JESUS’ sound, augmented by the combination of gentle clean vocals and hook-laden chorus choices, along with an array of ornamental guitar melodies.
  • Emerging Pagan black metal project UNFELLED is rising from the underground to release their debut full-length, ‘Pall of Endless Perdition’.
Designed by the same mastermind behind Woods of Desolation, the project serves as a vicious and violent counterpart to its elegant and melodic predecessor, showcasing muti-instrumentalist D.’s impressive musical duality.
Musically weaving together fury and triumph with aggression and melody, the lyrics predominately center on bloodshed, war and death – the threefold cloak beneath which lies eternal darkness.
  • ‘Exul’ personifies Ne Obliviscaris’ distinctive, boundary-pushing ethos. The band’s trademark blend of emotion and beauty is as towering as ever, if not even more compelling, particularly how the haunting violin lines carefully weave their way around the riffs. The duality of Charles’ clean vocals and Xenoyr’s growls remains the narrative anchor, elevating songs that emanate sophistication and are a masterclass in composition.
  • Upon the birth of their first full-length album ‘Lone’ in 2019, atmospheric death doom duo OAK emerged from Portugal with a slow and steady force, like roots breaking concrete.
After four years of slumber, the band has awakened like the old gods, ready to release utter devastation onto the masses with sophomore effort ‘Disintegrate’.
  • CD in deluxe digipak with 16-page booklet. Drawing lyrical inspiration from esoteric organizations, their beliefs and own practices, Finnish music veteran Jesse Heikkinen and co-lead vocalist Natalie Koskinen (Shape of Despair) weaved ritualistic tales from the darkest corners of themselves to pair with music that is a provocative, alluring kaleidoscope of dark, heavy rock. The result is the mystical ‘Word of Sin’, THE ABBEY’s first full-length. Featuring former Sentenced and The Man-Eating Tree drummer Vesa Ranta, Janne Markus (guitar, also of The Man-Eating Tree) and Henri Arvola (bass), the emerging progressive doom rock band’s debut album is certain to entrance and captivate the listeners with its spell.
