Marty Friedman - Wall of Sound

Somehow, I’m gonna say this… I’m somewhat relieved that what might have been a very short lived Megadeth reunion of their most famous line-up didn’t happen, because it would have probably meant that Friedman would have dedicated himself to that, rather than releasing music to his heart’s content…

Memnon Sa to release new studio album “Lemurian Dawn” on September 29th 2017

Following the release of their acclaimed debut “Citadel” in 2015, Memnon Sa return with “Lemurian Dawn”, a cosmic journey through space, time and myth.

Much like “Citadel”, the primary element of the new album is its carefully constructed atmosphere. Whilst the overtones of doom metal have subsided the sense of dread and mystery remain, the new album is more Sun Ra than it is Sunn O))).

Marty Friedman's new album, “Wall of Sound”, which will be released on August 4th, 2017, expands and destroys any conventional notions of instrumental music.

Dperd - V

Dpered are an Italian duo that features members of cult Italian darkwave band, Fear Of The Storm. While I don’t follow the band, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard some of their previous material while browsing through their record company’s site and I remember them being a bit more “involved”.
 
“V” is very laid back, dark, melancholic, but in a catatonic sort of way that however is not that cold or glacial, as your average “dark wave”… vocalist Valeria has a voice that I find displeasing, quite cold and removed that sounds rather foreboding and out-worldly as it’s “verbed” quite a bit.
 

Dperd to release new album “V” on March 14th 2016

Dperd announces new album “V” - due out on March 14th 2016

Dperd is coming back and the italian duo is doing it with their fifth full-length album called simply “V”, without any doubt the grandest and most elegant album of their 15 years career.

Once again they focused their efforts on the intimate and atmospheric Dark Wave mixing it to a filmic fusion of modern melancholic Dark Rock. The magic of bands like The Cure, Cocteau Twins but also the grandeur of nowadays acts like Dead Can Dance, Lycia, This Mortal Coil and Cranes is present in their music giving to the whole a superb sense of beauty.
