FRÄKMÜNDT - Releases New Video

Swiss ur-folk act Fräkmündt created a quaint music video for "Pfaffechälleri", a song from their upcoming album titled Landlieder & Frömdländler, to be released on 26th September in Europe and on 30th September in North America via Prophecy Productions. This release is Fräkmündt's most diverse and refined album so far, it perfectly exemplifies the ensemble's odd, rustic style. The musical spectrum ranges from thoughtful reflections on nature across wistful renditions of folk tales to drinking songs performed with Helvetian zest for life. With this, the musicians skilfully balance serious content and subtle humour, which makes their music compelling and tinged with Swiss local colour like no other. Enjoy in video below. Link

SPECTRAL HAZE - Debut Album Out In November Through Soulseller Records

Norwegian psyched out doomsters Spectral Haze will release on 28th November their debut album, I.E.V.: Transmutated Nebula Remains, through Soulseller Records. Spectral Haze was first conjured from the void three years ago, through four sonick sorcerers residing in Oslo, Norway; Cëlestial Cöbra (drums), Döömdogg (bass guitar), Spacewülff (vocals, guitars) and Sönik Slöth (guitars). Through these last few years, Spectral Haze has undulated and grown into channeling through a fifth vessel, namely Electric Starling (Theremin, VOID). The upcoming album I.E.V.: Transmutated Nebula Remains follows their eponymous debut EP released in 2012, and brings even more psyched out doom rock rituals.

DEN SAAKALDTE - German Politician Apologises The Band For False Accusation

Political member of the centre-left German party SPD, Ralf Hofman, has publicly apologized to - amogst other artists - Norwegian black metallers Den Saakaldte, for his false false accusations concerning band's alleged involvement in the so colled "right-wing scene", with regards to the band's appearance at the Norwegian Hellcamp in Schweinfurt this October.
The whole incident was originally and wrongly ignited by Antifa, and brought to the attention of Schweinfurt's local authorities (including Ralf Hofman), in order to ban the Norwegian Hellcamp Festival in October (more in this topic can be read in the German eiditon of Rolling Stone Magazine (HERE). Evetually, after consulting credible independent sources, Mr. Hofman decided to apologize and admit that his suspicions were incorrect and drawn from unreliable authors.
His full statement: "My call for the ban of the concert at Stadthalle on Octover 4th has caused some outrage in social media. At this point, I have been given access to sources and people who are competent on the subject and the bands, such as the webzine undergrounded.de. At the core of the matter, it seems to be the case that our original source exaggerated some facts. I have to blame myself for what happened as I disregarded the central tenet of journalism to have at least two independent sources. But I am neither a journalist nor a full time politician, and doing volunteer work only, these things are not always easy. The bands that will play on October 4th in Schweinfurt have elements of their show that can be considered tasteless/in bad taste. But the extremist background I suspected is apparently not there at all. Thus, I withdraw the call for a ban".
In response, the members of Den Saakaldte commented: "Stop this bullshit! Our members, our lyrics and what we represent as a band has not a single thought even, being mixed with either left - centre - right political ideas....never has -never will!! We give a SHIT for politics and LEAVE US OUT OF THIS GOD DAMN THING!". Link

WHITE EMPRESS - Video Introduction To The Band And New Track Online

White Empress, the new band founded by former Cradle Of Filth guitarist Paul Allender, is streaming a new song, “A Prisoner Unleashed”, from the band’s debut album Rise Of The Empress. White Empress’ debut full-length album is set for release on Peaceville Records on 29th September. The album was recorded in the band's studio and has been mixed and mastered by veteran producer, Kit Woolven (Thin Lizzy, Cradle Of Filth). Paul’s signature razor-sharp riffing and epic, melodic twists and turns compliment the sumptuously alluring and often demonic voice of Mary Zimmer (Luna Mortis) to create a masterclass in savage yet uplifting metallic darkness. Beside Paul and Mary the bands line-up comprises of Will Graney, keyboardist from Damnation Angels, Chela Harper, bass player for Coal Chamber, guitarist Jeremy Kohnmann from The Awakening, and drummer Zac Morris, who’s played with many bands including Ugly Kid Joe. Now the band unveils two things, a video like introduction to the band and new song "A Prisoner Unleashed". Everything is below and over HERE you can still enjoy in recently released video clip for the track "Darkness Encroaching". Link

Welcome to the bewitching and magical pagan world of The Moon And The Nightspirit. The Hungarian duo consisting of singer/multiinstrumentalist Ágnes Tóth and lyricist/multiinstrumentalist Mihály Szabó, brought to life in 2003 is back with their fifth studio album named Holdrejtek. In truth there are not enough words in the vocabulary to express the magical entity of their music, but let me tell you that their enchanting and compulsive creations split between medieval, folk, world, pagan and celtic music are simply out of this world. Holdrejtek is absolutely their strongest and most compact release to date, it's thematically based and influenced, like each of their albums, by deep veneration for and love of nature, yet this time approached by much more philosophical and intellectual way and less romantical. Still this doesn't mean that it has lost any of its romantic charm, contrary. The Moon And The Nightspirit can captivate with an interesting sense to compose smooth, yet very rich, almost cinematic ambiances that can be compared in terms of effectiveness to those of Dead Can Dance, but the acts that are stylistically nearest are Norwegians Arcana or Austrians Die Verbannten Kinder Evas. Holdrejtek holds an ancient aura and engulfs its vibe from the ancient folklore and mysticism. It's essence is dark, yet pure, it's elegant and hypnotic in the most audacious way.
