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 - August 2018

Band: The Eternal
Album title: Waiting For The Endless Dawn
Release date: 17 August 2018
Label: Inverse Records

Doom metal hasn't sounded so very intriguing and adventurous for a long time, actually I see that rare are the bands in todays doom metal scene who have the guts to create something that transcends the genre and at a certain point reinveints it. That's what the Melbourne (Australia) based The Eternal did on their sixth full-length Waiting For The Endless Dawn. This album is a melancholic opus that contains seven songs with a playing time of 75 minutes, and yes, most of the songs are lenghty, some almost epic, like the 20 minutes long opener "The Wound", a cinematic statement that connects in a way this album with previous one and takes the listener from moments of progressive, emotive rock, gothic metal, all the way to slow drudging doom metal. The songs might be long but there's so much going on while The Eternal throughout keep the very melancholic and dark ambiance. The Eternal's Waiting For The Endless Dawn is a smooth stellar piece of sonic art and one of the doom metal highlights released in the last couple of years.
