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 - July 2018

Band: Khôrada
Album title: Salt
Release date: 20 July 2018
Label: Prophecy Productions

Originality in an era of creative conformity is rare. Khôrada’s debut album Salt cuts through the heavy music scene fluff and is Exhibit 1 for what can be produced through hard work and dedication to the craft when the correct amalgamation of individual personalities and talent work in unison. Casting aside the well-known stylings of their now defunct bands, Agalloch and Giant Squid, obviously provided the crew of Don Anderson (guitar), AJ Gregory (vocals/guitar), Jason Walton (bass) and Aesop Dekker (drums) the freedom to explore new sonic terrains; an opportunity they fully pursued. The easiest path would have been to replicate their old sounds without breaking new ground. Instead, Salt is a genre-defying slab of contemporary post-metal infused with a healthy appreciation of psychedelia, sludge and precise riff-mongering. While many contemporary vocalists choose grunts and growls out of ease (or necessity), the clean vocals utilized on all of Salt perfectly fit with the soundscape being forged from this burst of new growth as artists and creators.
