« A liturgy of decay, because if you want to learn to fly, you will first have to learn to fall »

At the crossroads between a deeply gothic style (in an almost literal meaning of the word), carried by a misty and originally disenchanted religiosity which gathers inspiration in centuries-aged musical shapes and orchestrations, and a truly modern, clear-voiced, atmospheric and melodic metal, +Liturgy Of Decay+ is the place of birth and the cradle of what reviews formerly described as a deeply personal and yet unexplored style – to which has been given the designation of “ flamboyant gothic metal”, in reference to the proliferation characteristic of the architectural genre with the same name as well as to the bringing together and to the confrontation within its aesthetic, dialectical and musical content of abyssal darkness and of sparkling lights from intense radiance, of black opacities and of vibrant clarities. Blending a wide spectre of influences from Dead Can Dance, The Cure, The Sisters Of Mercy or Elend to Paradise Lost, Samael, Moonspell or Tiamat, passing by symphonic, liturgical and electronic music, the band’s work, carried by a permanent emotional and spiritual tension wandering the extremes both high and low, drives to the exploration of an ageless universe where saturated guitars and hammered rhythms, classical and electronic orchestrations, great organs, harpsichords, choirs and carillons melt with each other and weave a backcloth where an alternately plaintive and incantatory chant psalmodies the revolt and the bitterness of an aching past and the invocation for a glorious future by calling to an uprising of the Self against despondency.

Diktatur – “L’Agonie d’Un Monde”


Diktatur – “L’Agonie d’Un Monde”

Label: Melancholia Records
Release Date: November 28th, 2016
Genre: Black Metal
Country: #France
Running Time: 19 min

Line-up:
Guitares, Bass, Synthetizer & programming : Aizko :
Drums : Thorgis
Voice : Thsymgor

TRACKLIST

01 – Comme une Ombre
02 – L’Hérétique
03 – Par le Fer & le Feu
04 – L’Agonie d’Un Monde

Founded in 2008, DIKTATUR is a black metal band from the South-West of France and the Basque country. The band draws its inspiration from the concept of the “strong way” (violence, horror, fighting the unbeatable, etc…) where hope dies and death is the only solution.
Late 2010, DIKTATUR self-released its debut album entitled LA VOIE DU SANG (translation: The Way of Blood). The takes place mainly in the context of trench warfare, facing the horror and the threatening eye of Death. Despite a minimal promotion, the album has been exported to Spain, Greece, Germany, Norway and Thailand.
During 2015, DIKTATUR reveals four new pieces taken from the unfinished outline of the successor of LA VOIE DU SANG and makes it a EP in 2016 : L’AGONIE d’UN MONDE (translation: The Agony Of a World).
Once again, the group proves that it is not easy to put a label on their creations and offers us here 4 titles of a perfectly mastered Black Metal with deep and varied atmospheres. L’AGONIE D’UN MONDE depicts in music an unstoppable mechanism, that of a slave-like order (Comme un ombre) and oppressor (L’hérétique), ready to destroy everything to rule over nothing
(Par le fer et le feu, L’agonie d’un monde). Mastered at [X]-LAB STUDIO (The Prisoner, Numenor …) this EP also marks a major turning point for DIKTATUR with several changes of line-up and its entry into the renaissant label MELANCHOLIA RECORDS (Orakle, Bornholm, Hecatombic, Numenor, Straasha, Unholy Matrimony, Malefilencia, The Prisoner …).
Do not deceive yourself, under this name which makes him fantasize more than one, DIKTATUR does not support any political or philosophical current. Only music reigns supreme.

Realms of Odoric – “Second Age”


Realms of Odoric – “Second Age”

Label: MDD Records/Shop
Release Date: December 14th, 2016
Genre: Classical/Soundtrack
Country: Internacional
Running Time: 43 min

Line-up:
Arkadius Antonik – All instruments
Kris Verwimp – Artwork, Concept

The soundtrack project of well known graphic artist Kris Verwimp (Marduk, Manegarm, Tyrfing, SuidAkra), and musician and composer Arkadius Antonik (SuidAkra, Fall Of Carthage), where they combine their creativity in a concept of a huge fantasy world, will be continued by the end of the year 2016 with “Second Age”. “Second Age” tells the story of the second era of Odoric. The story is realized in the complex and orchestral compositions of Arcadius, as well as numerous illustrations by Kris Verwimp, which can be admired in the offered 80-page book. Due to the study and completion of Arkadius at the Audiocaution Academy, the compositions are much more mature than ever before. For the first time in the history of the project, the recordings were recorded with the participation of guest musicians from all over the world. Two compositions of this amazing work were played and recorded by the Brandenburg State Orchestra and the Budapest Scoring Symphonic Orchestra. The 18 tracks undoubtedly represent the culminating point of the creation of both exceptional artists, and create a fascinating and inspiring experience for listeners as well as beholders. Composings and recordings (with exception of the orchestral recordings) “Second Age” was created by Arcadius Antonik in the “Realms Of Odoric” studio (Würzburg), while Martin Buchwalter is responsible for mastering at the Gernhart Studio Troisdorf.

The CD Book is only available on MDD (and a few choosen shops) without huge store distribution.
The project is defined by the combination of illustrations and music.

Diapsiquir is dead tonight…

Fed up with your boredom, your conformism, your deceitfulness hidden behind your pitiful fan-attitude. You thought you could belive in them, but they don’t believe in you at all. Whatever. Diapsiquir put an end to the folklore as much as they grab its very essence, they fuck the light as much as they embrace it. Diapsiquir is Diapsiquir and almost no one understood what it is about, even yours truly, trying to lay down these words. No need to lie anymore…

Diapsiquir is dead. Diapsiquir is alive. A bit closer to God, and farther from Satan. Or maybe these two ones are just the two sides of the same coin, laughing while strangling each other, false brother and false foes.

Diapsiquir is dead, Diapsiquir is alive. Straighten up to 180°, erected and harded-on, an authentic but unorthodox Lazarus. Too authentic, for us, for everything. Diapsiquir is dead and 180° is alive, it quivers, eructates, sings and doesn’t like salute you. It doesn’t like you, did you know ? And you can bet you won’t like it too, not if you care about your beloved little metal, this inocuous infringment. The bastards are back and well ! They squat in your unconscious, the mental backyard you don’t want to tread. What is inhibited ends up revolting.

Face to the dead-end, both escape or fight are at hand. No more folklore, no more disguise, tear down the mask, the existential fear on your back. 180° to burn you, 180° to turn you uspide down, 180° to piss you but in the end you’ll love it nonetheless. Stockholm syndrom pays.

Bastards forever, with new clothes but still the same, without shame. Don’t you like variety?

Diapsiquir is dead tonight… all hail Diapsiquir!

FALL OF CARTHAGE – “The Longed-For Reckoning”


FALL OF CARTHAGE – “The Longed-For Reckoning”

With their second album, “The Longed-For Reckoning”, Fall Of Carthage prove their intentions are serious. After numerous live shows within the last few months, it’s clear this is not just a sideproject of Arkadius Antonik (Official SuidAkrA, Realms of Odoric) and Martin Buchwalter (Perzonal War), who pulled Sascha Aßbach in front of the mic after a long absence from the music scene.

Sixteen songs represent a genre-defying creativity and joy for experimentation, as well as, their love for detail and natural sounds. Those who expect programmed blast-beats and typical Thrash or Metalcore structures will be in for a surprise. What you get is much more. Their sound can be described somewhere between groove metal, hardcore and rap without having the feeling of simply throwing sounds together.
The versatility of Sascha’s vocals is convincing in its full spectrum. Thanks to the solid and elaborate songwriting that all band members were involved in from the beginning, the new tracks are catchy without getting boring.
FOC have grown together musically, and so “The Longed-For Reckoning” will surely be a highlight for 2017.
Like the debut, “Behold,” this album was produced at Gernhart Studio in Troisdorf, and promises a fat ass sound with superb mixing. Be on the lookout for “The Longed-For Reckoning” in early 2017.

Label: MDD Records
Release Date: January 27th, 2017
Genre: New School Thrash & Metal
Country: Germany
Running Time: 58 min

Line-up:
Sascha Aßbach – vocals
Arkadius Antonik – guitar
Martin Buchwalter – drums
