Introducing: I Am The Night featuring members of Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, Paradise Lost


The new band featuring Finnish metal scene legends opens an ancient chasm of Black Metal, born of an epic tradition.


Rising from the deep valleys of Kymi in southernmost Finland, I Am The Night is Black Metal rooted in the classic early 90’s tradition, where walls of guitars and synthesizers raise the forces of darkness in a battle against the heavens and burning angels light up the night sky.

Finnish noise-rock band Throat release video for new single ‘Vanilla Cuts’


Throat’s third album, ”Smile Less” carries a significantly darker tone compared to the band’s previous output albeit the light at the end of the tunnel has always been dim. While the foundation of Throat’s sound remains in 90s noise rock, ”Smile Less” pushes its way through all boundaries, starting off with cold post-punk vibes and ending in a wall of harsh noise. The space between those moments is stuffed with noisy rock music offering the listener the odd chance for groovy booty shake before throwing a curve ball with some industrial sound experiments. The first impression may not be as jarring as on their earlier recordings, but ”Smile Less” is still a demanding listen as Throat have never been poster boys for entertainment value.

JESS AND THE ANCIENT ONES Release Second Single “Love Zombi” From New Album “Vertigo”


Jess and The Ancient Ones show us their possessed Psychedelic Soul on “Love Zombi”, the second single from their forthcoming new album Vertigo! With organ-led swagger and a freak-beat to raise the dead and make them dance, “Love Zombi” is a graveyard smash.

Main-man songwriter/guitarist Thomas Corpse describes it perfectly when he says: “In this track one can maybe hear eerie echoes of funk lurking in the root. The feel of the middle part leans towards European old school horror movies”. “Love Zombi” is Jess and The Ancient Ones back to their creepy, catchy rocking best, live-wired and undead!
