German electro/industrial/punk/wave act Rabia Sorda are back… and the name of their new EP, which would translate into "wild beasts" in English, is pretty much programmatic for all the infernal new songs.

Check it out in the video below what the mastermind Erk Aicrag has to say about the release. Link

PRIMORDIAL - Releases Their First Ever Professional Video Clip

Irish "heathen" metallers Primordial have released their first professionally filmed and edited video clip in the history of the band. The clip is for the song "Babel's Tower" and is taken from bands latest majestic opus, Where Greater Men Have Fallen, released a couple of days ago through Metal Blade Records.
Comments the band: "It was really about time right? This far down the road that we made our first video eight albums in. So we trusted Gareth Averill and crew who also made our DVD a couple of years back. The traditional band jamming in a warehouse scenario was not something that entered our heads, we wanted something broad and cinematic, something visually striking and arresting. So we spent a couple of cold and windswept days standing on the side of a mountain in Ireland. Here you have it, and about time…" Link

MESMUR - Debut Album Out Soon, Opening Track Available For Streaming

USA based funeral doom metallers Mesmur will release their debut self-titled album on 8th December via Code666. The band is led by Yixja, the mastermind that brought to life the progressive black metal band Dalla Nebbia. Blending influences ranging from the funerary dirges of Evoken to the mesmerizing atmosphere of Neurosis, Mesmur shows versatility in a genre where simplicity usually reigns. Also featuring the agonizing screams of Chris G (Orphans Of Dusk, Intorment Black), the drumming of Alkurion (Dalla Nebbia and Funeral Age), and the bass playing of Aslak Karlsen Hauglid, Mesmur brings you the harrowing sounds of your inevitable demise and is not for the weak at heart.
On the eponymous debut album, Mesmur weaves five tapestries of dread and despair, totalling about 52 minutes of runtime. Lyrical subject matter ranges from themes of isolation and paranoia, to death and loss, to cosmic cataclysm and the destruction of human society, and the album as a whole carries an almost Lovecraftian feeling of hopelessness for humanity in the face of uncontrollable horrors. Adding to this feeling is cover art from Gravedealer Studio, with its image of a primitive subterranean city that could portray a meager attempt at refuge from some unknown apocalypse occuring above ground, or could perhaps be the remnants of an ancient civilization that suffered a similar fate long ago. The opening track named "Deprivation" is already available for streaming on Bandcamp. You can give it a listen below. Link

Aeon Sable, a name that must already bring shivers to every and each soul fancying dark music out there. The band is one of the most productive and credible bands in the dark rock scene, but not only, with each new release, the German band expands the borders of the genre - let's say gothic rock, even though this is a bit unjust to say so for their musical creations. One year after the stunning "mini" album Aequinoctium Aeon Sable offers an ahead of time album named Visionaers. Aeon Sable become masters in creating vast atmospheric gothic rock soundscapes by making use of elements taken from post-rock and metal, even shoegaze, dark wave and cinematic music. Aeon Sable's fourth album reaches the heights that were set with previous albums, but it goes further. Thankfully also the production, final mix, mastering and artwork concept works in their favour. Visionaers is by all means an album showing now a completely consistent band that's expanding their own artistical limits and with that, maybe even unconsciously, writing the history of the genre, making it modern with an unpretentious approach. A must!
