Aherusia - Nostos ~ An Answer (?)

I was never, much of a fan of Aherusia’s first couple of albums, considering them to be a neat, if not a little more artistic, version of Rotting Christ, a band I was never too big on, with the exception of a couple of albums, due to their poor English enunciation. This however totally changed around, when the former released their third album, “Prometheus”, an ambitious concept album, which decides to modernize and give its own interpretation to the Promethean myth.

Cemican - In Ohtli Teoyohtica in Miquiztli

Metal has become not only fragmented, which might have helped it survive, but has also relegated it to relatively low overall chart places and such, but has in a way become a little unimaginative. Every now and again a really interesting band will come out and refresh the scene and shortly thereafter an army of clones, with sometimes not only the same MO, but in some extreme cases even font will come out to challenge the primacy of theirs. A story as old as time itself.

Wormwood release lyric video for first single “The Isolationist”

Today Wormwood invites you back 152 years in time. To this very day, on the first of June, 1867. To a year when the summer never came to Sweden. A devastating famine ravaged throughout the country. The scars from the starvation and the failed crops can be seen til these days out in the isolated provinces.
 
“The Isolationist” is song about solitude. About a man who refuses to leave his home deep in the forest. His old wife dies, yet there he remains and withers away into obscurity.
 

Finsterforst to release new studio album “Zerfall” on August 2nd 2019

Their fifth studio album, “Zerfall”, sees Black Forest Metal act Finsterforst return to the serious and elegiac soundscapes of classics such as the critically acclaimed “Mach Dich Frei” (2015). The Germans’ emotional brand of post black metal gives vent to endless rage with pounding riffs and astonishing orchestral elements – and then flows into somber choirs.
