SHADOWDREAM - Signs With Wormholedeath For The Release Of 10th Anniversary Album

Serbian dark ambient/jazz one-man band Shadowdream will release its 10 years anniversary album entitled UM via Wormholedeath Records. Sixth full lenght album titled UM, which marks 10 years of musical work, will be released and promoted/distributed worldwide via Wormholedeath on 13th May. This album presents a "sonick psychosis", a unique voyage into the depths of a tortured mind - the mind of a schizophrenic. Therefore, the music on this album can be described as "Psychotic Jazz". Rastko Perišić awakened his musical project and called it Shadowdream, referring to the forgotten realms which are born under the darkest shadows. He started this project with great desire to emphasize dark side of Ambient Music Art, discretely composed with black metal tones. Since the very beginning of his Saga, he was learning about spheres of Dr. Anton Laveys philosophy and feelings which this philosophy created, along with emotional state of melancholy, made the first step in the depths of Musical Art.
Worm stated: "When I got in touch with Rastko I made some researchs on him. His music sounded unique to me and I really wanted to work with this very strange/obscure project but I also wanted to know more about him. I found out that he has a Master degree at the Stockholm University, Sweden at the Department of Cinema Studies and studies at Musical High School with major in violin and Music Theory, and piano and flute as secondary instruments. He is very passioned towards astronomy and frequently is doing observations trough his telescope and researches in fields of this science. Also, he is evolved in researching of Maya Civilization and he wrote several essays in Serbian language on subject of this civilization. Rastko is also the owner of film production company: Sunsettlers Cinema. I decided to sign Shadowdream also because its long career as a project, its amazing music but also because I believe that this guy is a true artist that can jump from music to cinema with outstanding results so easily. I am so proud of this deal, please support us with this experiment, this one, it's going to be massive!" Watch and listen below to the 15 minutes long promo video for UM. Link

RAGNAROK - Part Company With Frontman

Norwegian black metallers Ragnarok have announced an amicable parting of the ways with their frontman Hans Fyrste. Fyrste, who has been with the band since 2005 and performed vocals on two of their seven full length albums - 2010's Collectors Of The King and the latest release Malediction - is cutting back on his musical activities due to other personal and job-related commitments, which had already affected his ability to tour with Ragnarok at the end of last year. His last live appearance with the band was at this year's Blastfest festival in February.
In a statement the frontman explained his decision: "The decision to leave Ragnarok, has been an extremely hard one to make. Jontho and Brigge brought me in to the horde in 2005, and this still stands as my biggest achievement as a musician. Personal circumstances have made it so that I will not be able to dedicate myself to Ragnarok, as much as it requires. It is with a heavy heart that we have come to an agreement, and I am pulling out of the band. All words fall short compared to how grateful I am for have taken part in this journey. Over the years we have experienced so many great achievements, and I would never have been without any of them. Being able to tour around the world, from Siberia to Rio de Janeiro, with supporting, passionate and faithful friends and fans in every city, has been a humbling experience. Every step of the way has also brought with it impressions, educating me to be a stronger person. Also learning so many new things, evolving to be the vocalist and human being I am today. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has  made this journey possible. Without all my great friends and fans out there, nothing of this could have ever happened. Thank you! And finally, of course, thank you Jontho, DezeptiCunt and Bolverk. Thank you for all the great times on and off the stage. Thank you for everything we have gone through together. Thank you for the brotherhood and support! I leave Ragnarok as a humble man, and wish my brothers all the best in the future.
Hans Fyrste…."
Founder and drummer Jontho had this to say about Fyrste's departure: "After 20 years you come to expect these things as an inevitable part of being in a band. Sooner or later there comes a time when all musicians must take a hard look at their lives and take decisions based on family and work commitments. Hans Fyrste felt that he could not give the amount of dedication that Ragnarok asks of its members, and that it would be fairer all round to call it a day, and that is very much to his credit. He has been a real asset to the band. We have watched him grow over the years to become a great frontman and we wish him all the best for the future". Link

Ever since Nigredo’s final lasting breath perfumed with dissonance the air during 2004, a beast had been crafting its legacy within the very entity of Diary Of Dreams. Slowly, but steadily, it was taking shape so as to appear in the 11th hour of the band, Elegies In Darkness, their 11th full-length to date. Elegies In Darkness inhales the thick air from the scorned mouth and exhales the multifaceted grandeur of internal affairs straight from the eyes with the bleakest of colors; one stare at the cover artwork will convince you.Elegies in Darkness is one of those albums that won’t rely upon hit-songs and highlights, after all it doesn’t stand in the light. It’s a soulful testimony and should be cherished as such through its whole duration in order to treasure everything it stands for. If you thought it would be that easy surviving inside the vast ocean of emotions you should know that Diary Of Dreams can play tricks on your mind anytime and they achieve it once again with the heart-rending "A Day In December" and "Die Glassen Der Stadt" among other songs and passages that cut your breath like a knife in the wind. Dreams have been etched in the diary, another chapter is fulfilled.
