_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Ahab - The Boats Of The Glen Carrig:
With The Boats Of The Glen Carrig, the band seems to leave their typical funeral doom metal style behind them. There's much more emphasis on the atmosphere, driving metal lines and let's say the band discovered its progressive side, which nicely complements with heavy slow crushing riffs, punishing drums, wretched bass and guttural death vocals. Ahab's obsession with depths of the ocean and sea, with epic adventures, with anything drenched and salty, this time got a truly monolithic form and is the pitch perfect mood setting. [Review]


Confrontational - A Dance Of Shadows:
A Dance Of Shadows is not just another electronic release, which has its roots in the retro sound, but authors love for the darkwave and goth rock become notable, as he shifts away from the soundtrack music style and peers more into creating a deeply sorrowing sensations. This is an album that offers you a wonderful trip down the memory lane with and it truly does feel, like you're dancing with shadows. [Review]


Cryo Chamber Collaboration - Azathoth:
Azathoth is one of the most recommended dark ambient albums to experience. The listener will be constantly finding new and interesting layers and themes coming out of this vast work. Azathoth should be especially enjoyable listen on a dark rainy night or any time when the darker side takes hold. Global collaborations like this, showcasing artists from all over the world, is an inspiring concept, especially during these increasingly troubled times. [Review]


Dear Strange - Lonely Heroes:
Dear Strange posses the ability to create such vivid emotions and explicit coolness while walking a thin line beetween catchiness and atmosphere, thanks to the inspiration and re-invention of the dark side of the 80s with some minimal electro and club-sound-elements coming from an armada of synthesizers. Lonely Heroes is an album that captivates with its flow, with the inteligent revival of the new wave sound, addictive dark atmospheric layers and unique post-modern sound. [Review]


Draconian - Sovran:
Sovran is an ultimate proof that the combination of gothic metal and doom metal works out perfectly if you have top notch musicians performing and composing it. Sovran is magical, soothing, melancholic and dreamy adventure, yet it is ponderous, powerful and heavy. All of the songs on Sovran are nicely building up in atmosphere, there are so many layers and multidimensional ambiance gets often fulfilled with obscure gothy symphonic synths which give to the songs such an unimaginable depth and rich sound. [Review]

 
Neurotech - Stigma:
This album does open up new dimensions in the realms of Neurotech. On one side it is so staggeringly poetic, romantic and thought-provoking, on the other well as nerve striking, energetic and even demonic. From the first to the last second, this album exists as one; it breathes as one.  Playing softly with intertwining so many various styles, building on a solid foundation of cyber metal and enhancing with so many different layers, most notable feature of Stigma is its strong cinematic approach. [Review]


Shape Of Despair - Monotony Fields:
Finnish funeral doom-bringers Shape Of Despair make their long-awaited return with their first new album in over 10 years, Monotony Fields. Oppressively heavy, imposing, and always emotionally wrenching, Monotony Fields is an ominous masterpiece by all means. So beautifully the band blended together melancholy, atmosphere and doom into one well shaped coherent unity of sound.
