In the spotlight


The word of goth music and dark rock in general wouldn't be what it's without the legendary German band Garden Of Delight, a band which is one of the main acts for the development of second wave of gothic rock in the early 90s. Who on this planet that is into goth doesn't know the cult albums like Enki’s Temple, Sargonid Seal or Necromanteion IV, just to name a few? Then, the band which started its path in 1990 called it quits in 2008 and then another gem of dark music emerged in 2010, Merciful Nuns, the only real successor to Garden Of Delight. Even though that Merciful Nuns emerged from the ashes of the legendary Garden Of Delight - most of the similarity ends here. Artaud said: "The intension to split up Garden Of Delight and go on with the Merciful Nuns was to create something darker and deeper as Garden Of Delight ever could do." Merciful Nuns has evolved from leading the resurgence of goth to becoming a unique genre in itself, into something that got a label occult post goth. The three Germans, masterminded by the iconic Artaud Seth, has now just released through Solar Lodge their album number ten, titled Anomaly X, which is also the final album for this exceptional band.


Album of the month - May 2018

Band: Amorphis
Album title: Queen Of Time
Release date: 18th May 2018
Label: Nuclear Blast Records

One of the most unique bands in the entire metal scene must be the Finnish Amorphis, not only that they have in their 28 years long career made a huge impact on heavy music like we know it today, the band has also developed their own hard to really define style to which almost no other band comes close. Queen Of Time has everything you can expect that a forward thinking band would offer. Technically and productionally (thanks also to the producer Jens Bogren) is flawless, it has also the necessary depth and is emotionally charged. Amorphis so very nicely conceals the progressive character of their music with amazing folkish melodies and truly captivating rhythms, and by doing this they achive kind of a special drive that is present throughout all of the songs. The songs are dense, rich, massive,... It's not that Amorphis changed that much, they simply added some new things into their already amazing sound, it's really great to see the band still growing after all this years and not just setting down on what they already achived in the past; you need some courage and most of all the necessary skill and talent for doing this.

Video of the week

Varathron - Remnants Of The Dark Testament

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Luciferian Light Orchestra
Album title: Luciferian Light Orchestra
Release date: 30 April 2015
Label: Adulruna Records

Christofer Johnsson suprises with something truly special, a new band named Luciferian Light Orchestra. It stands for everything that Christofer composed throughout the years and somehow didn't fit on any of the Therion albums. Luciferian Light Orchestra' debut is even though being an elegant vintage sounding album still fresh. When you think that the music could became too complex, psychedelic or perverse, Luciferian Light Orchestra immediately kicks off with such a catchy structure that you'll be in an instant put again into the corridor of this musical occultistic, yet conceptual journey. Take off your dress and join Luciferian Light Orchestra in the sabbath!
