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 - September 2018

Band: Atrium Carceri
Album title: Codex
Release date: 11 September 2018
Label: Cryo Chamber

Atrium Carceri is one of those acts that doesn't follow the trends of the genre, but rather than that is making new trajectories and exploring new grounds, and Codex is simply another proof of that. Even if the album is quite "short" for a dark ambient release (45 minutes), it offers a lot, more than you might have expected and is maybe the most adventurous, the most musical, the most enigmatic, going deeply into the fields of industrial music, and as well is the most dynamic album that Atrium Carceri ever made. The album perfectly builds up in tension, it's highly suspenseful and sound seems to become from track to track more alive and somehow breathing. Codex is meant to become without any doubt a cult album, from every single point of view, performance, composition and production are just top notch. Even if each track offers something different, everything seems to be in perfect harmony and still well connected to render an outstanding sonic adventure. Codex might not be that kind of album for dark ambient "elitists" if they exists, but it's certainly a work of art that explores and sets new borders.
