In the spotlight


Recently we are facing a proper post-punk revival, there are many new bands on the scene and as well some long forgotten cult acts were reformed and are now on their second mission. In this mass of bands many are just bland copies and revivalist of 80s sound, but some of them certainly bring fresh air to this rather narrow genre, one of them are UK based newcomers Klammer, a band who by blending together post-punk, punk rock, goth rock and add to all that some dark pop accessibility, certainly deserves your attention as they are one of those acts who with their professional approach towards what they are doing expands the borders of the genre.Klammer come from Leeds and came to life in 2013, from the members' shared love for all things angular, dark, loud and melodic. They've shared stages with the likes of The Membranes, Penetration, Art Brut, Department S, 999 and Richie Ramone (who they are going to be touring the UK and Ireland with again this November and December).


Album of the month - September 2016

Band: Various Artists
Album title: Nyarlathotep: A Cryo Chamber Collaboration
Release date: 27 September 2016
Label: Cryo Chamber

Cryo Chamber has released a giant with this one. On Nyarlathotep, Cryo Chamber releases a more ambitious addition to their Lovecraftian Mythos series. Nyarlathotep takes into account everything Cryo Chamber learned on the previous two outings. Yet, it pushes the limits even further. Nyarlathotep consists of 26 artists. Cryo Chamber artists, as well as a handful of artists from outside the label bring forth a whole new tale. The use of field recordings on this album seems to reach magnificent heights. The use of so many different instruments within the album adds yet another layer of Earthly realism to the mix. Often these instruments take on a Near Eastern quality, usually of the Egyptian variety. This gives us a sense of location as well as a mental image of Nyarlathotep dressed in the garb of a great ancient pharaoh. From concept, to studio integration, to technique, to mastering, and everything in between, Nyarlathotep hits the intended mark. With each of these Lovecraftian Mythos collaborations, somehow these artists seem to keep topping themselves. Nyarlathotep is one more step up the ladder, one more masterpiece from a label that keeps pushing the boundaries, without alienating the origins of the genre. Nyarlathotep is an absolute must have album for any dark ambient fan. Over the three hours of music, there is never a dull moment, everything is orchestrated to perfection.

Video of the week

Nordjevel - Djevelen I Nord

Recommended by Terra Relicta

Band: Antimatter
Album title: The Judas Table
Release date: 9 October 2015
Label: Prophecy Productions

Since the departure of one of the Antimatter's founders, Duncan Patterson, (former bassist/songwriter of Anathema), the remaining member Mick Moss brought Antimatter to the state of being one of the essential bands when it comes to melancholic and atmospheric rock. After two stunning albums, the groundbreaking Leaving Eden (2007) and Fear Of A Unique Identity (2012), both albums set new standards for the dark atmospheric alternative rock music, now Mick's Antimatter is back with a new very introspective album, The Judas Table. Following the steps of before mentioned two albums, the new opus is another proof how to blend together melancholic art rock, goth, atmospheric rock and highly emotional acoustic pieces. The Judas Table is a conceptual album in which Mick Moss sings about his personal experiences, about betrayal, disappointment, self-doubt, and anybody who ever suffered from betrayal on a personal level will without doubt relate to this album, but not only... Mick Moss' battle with his inner demons might seem to be now in an equilibrium, but we who love the music this man does will hope that this battle in his thoughts might never end and Antimatter will still be exploring this intimate and sad side of personal struggle to survive amongst all of evil selfish souls who were born just to cause harm and desperation. All in all, Antimatter created another gem full of amazing soul and mind shaking atmospheric songs!
