DANISH ATMOSPHERIC BLACK METALLERS SUNKEN TO RELEASE “DEPARTURE” ON MAY 26th


After the 2013 demo “The Crackling of Embers”, Danish atmospheric black metallers SUNKEN are ready to take the world by storm with their debut full-length “Departure”, an album where the band showcases once again their potency and songwriting skills, promising to cause an impact and lasting atmosphere.

The band comments: “Our debut album has been long underway. ‘Departure’ shows a more matured, unique and experimental Sunken, with a more honest approach to songwriting, sound and expression. The writing of the album has been a long journey, with new and interesting sources of inspiration and contributions from many different musicians. All of this made the album what it is today. We’re finally ready for our Departure.”

“Departure” is set to be released on May 26th, 2017 via Triton’s Orbit (home of Vinterbris, Akasava and Riti Occulti).

SNOVONNE Details New Album “THE CHILD AND THE BITCH”


Sno.jpg

Snovonne is known for her melancholic and psychoanalytic creations, which often reveal things one would rather not see.  The new album The Child And The Bitch is exactly that and so much more.

“The concept carries a strong psychoanalytic undertone.” Snovonne says. “It’s about perception, points of view. It’s the battle between two voices – how you were born vs. what the world turns you into. There’s no right or wrong, both the entities have values to stand on, but that doesn’t stop them from clashing… I wanted to give room to both voices.”

The album will be introduced with the super-melancholic “Best Days”.  Coming out March 17th, the video presents the album’s concept of duality, musically and visually.

The third official full-length album The Child And The Bitch (subtitled “Chronicles 1984 – 2014”) has been in production since 2015 and is now scheduled for release on April 17th. 

“Best Days” Trailer! 

With all artistic gears spinning to a maximum, it’s a big leap forward – not only its heavily emotional and expressive content, but also in its audio and visual presentation. Heavy-hitting, stomping riffs are supported by epic, aggressive orchestral arrangements and cut through with razor-sharp melancholy.

Sno´s grandfather was, in his time, a reputable psychiatrist with a passion for fine arts and swing music. That had a significant influence on her artistic life.

She continues: “I’ve always been fascinated by old medical journals and books… Grew up around it, family of doctors… So given the self-analytical tone of the record, it was only natural to make the artwork an old medical journal. The lyrics are my entries with dates when they were written, some of them I wrote when I was very young. As a parallel, I put in old articles from the 20’s, which I scanned from the original personal scrapbook of Dr. Frederick Finch Strong. He was a renowned persona of the last century – promoter of electrotherapy, cutting-edge in developing methods of treatment, and highly esoteric and eccentric. He was the first American to employ Tesla Coils therapeutically.”

Krysthla announce new album ‘Peace In Our Time’


Krysthla announce new album ‘Peace In Our Time’

album-cover-rob

Hailed by Metal Hammer Magazine (UK) as “setting 2016 on fire” (alongside TexturesDream TheaterAnthrax, and Devin Townsend) one of the finest extreme metal acts around will release their sophomore album this April.

Titled ‘Peace In Our Time’, this new studio offering from Krysthla sees the British five-piece producing something extremely special. Part metal, part extreme, part technical, part progressive… Aurally this is a metal fan’s nirvana. There’s an abundance of aggression on offer, and yet the power of the band is amplified even more with melodic tinges and lighter musical landscapes, which never detract from the powerhouse delivery Krysthla is renowned for.

k3hiresFollowing the announcement of their debut album ‘A War Of Souls And Desires’ in July 2015, Krysthla broke into Amazon UK’s pre-release Top 10 album chart (alongside the likes of Iron Maiden and Disturbed), featured in-store nationwide at HMV as a “recommended buy” and lead music video ‘Luminosity’ was playlisted on Scuzz TV.

Krysthla’s debut album received extremely positive reviews from the music press, setting the band up for an exceptional 2016. From their extensive European tour with Decapitated to a prestigious slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock Open Air, and main support to Textures at Mammothfest, Krysthla has crafted their music and live shows to such a high standard, that they can’t be ignored.

With ‘Peace In Our Time’, this is the sound of a band that has quickly found its place in the metal market, and given the chance, Krysthla will take the scene by storm.

The new album ‘Peace In Our Time’ is released 7th April via PHD.
