In the spotlight


One of the most important musical projects inside the neoclassical/folk noir scene must be the German or rather European music ensemble Sagittarius. The project was born back in 1998, formed by Cornelius Waldner who felt the urge and need to work more intensively with classical music and soundscapes and to musically interpret traditional pieces of literature dear to him. Until now, Sagittarius released three full-lenght albums through labels like Cold Spriing Records (UK) and Renovatio Verlag (Germany), plus several limited edition releases. The first two releases of Sagittarius were two demo cassettes, Im Zeichen der Sonne (1999) and Fragmente (2002), soon after that Sagittarius released the debut album titled Die Grosse Marina in 2003 through Renovatio Verlag. The album is a conceptual composition based on Ernst Jünger's novel 'On The Marble Cliffs', but should not be understood as an attempt to put the entire book into music, instead, selected scenes and passages were picked out and inspired Sagittarius during the process of creation. Apart from six own compositions, the album also included musical pieces by Ion Manzatu, Simion Lefter and Ludwig van Beethoven.


Album of the month - January 2018

Band: Summoning
Album title: With Doom We Come
Release date: 5 January 2018
Label: Napalm Records

Silenius and Protector, created another masterpiece that will expand the borders of our perception how the fantasy world can be infringed into music. With Doom We Come is in many regards quite similar to its predecessor, but still it evokes many different emotions, it's their most ambiental and gloomy work so far, also the ever present whistful atmosphere makes it as one of the most melancholic albums released by Summoning until now. Over eight tracks, With Doom We Come indulges all things sublime and majestic, while grandiose keyboard backgrounds and mystical intros weave pure atmosphere contrasting with raw black metal. This album is meant to take you on a journey into the fantasy world, it's a dark cinematic soundscape for those who like to dream, but this dream might be a wild one, taking the listener from the land of the Valar to Morgoth and visiting the hills of Shire, before entering in the shadow land called Mirklands.  Summoning are otherworldly, there are not many bands on this planet which are able to build up and intensify the ambiance in their songs like they do. With Doom We Come is another album made by Summoning that reaches the sublime, and Protector and Silenius have in a magnificient way turned over a new leaf in their bottomless saga.

Video of the week

We Are Parasols -

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Dark Funeral
Album title: Where Shadows Forever Reign
Release date: 3 June 2016
Label: Century Media Records

Dark funeral is back darker and heavier than ever before! Their new album Where Shadows Forever Reign, is the name that will circulate for a long time in people's minds. The album has a clear crisp sound , with loads of throwbacks to the old days of the bands entire discography, but still this one is nothing like you would expect from a Dark Funeral record. Every song literally stands on its own. Catchy riffs and melancholic melodic guitar riffs are all over and it seems that Lord Ahriman has really been busy and overdone himself. The songs are more organic than on previous records and perhaps more balanced as well. Many fans will be happy to hear the new record and many older hardcore fans will find themsleves back to the band, while this one will most certainly also reach further to new audience.
