In the spotlight


It was back in 2010 when a new beast emerged in Essen, Germany, by two extraordinary artists Din-Tah Aeon and Nino Sable. Named Aeon Sable it forever changed everything that we thought we knew about dark rock and goth music. The creativity and dexterity of the two musicians, involved in several projects of the German underground scene since 1997, has allowed them to travel to seductively-surprising territory creating an alluring, dark atmosphere that continues to command the attention of the fans in Europe and worldwide. Din-Tah Aeon (guitars, programming, production, instrumentalist-songwriter) and Nino Sable (vocals, lyrics, production, songwriter, graphics and media designer) started Aeon Sable as a studio project only and released the debut album named Per Aspera Ad Astra in February 2010 through Af-music. The album, which was still pretty much influenced by goth rock giants like Fields Of The Nephilim and The Sisters Of Mercy, especially the songs like goth rock monuments "Exodus" or "Sever", on the other side already showed some unique and modern elements ("Agnosia", "At The Edge Of The World") that divided the gothic rock scene, goth elitists never really accepted the sound of Aeon Sable, but those who found goth/dark rock becoming a bit boring and repetitive, gave Aeon Sable a chance.

Red Sun Revival - Running From The Dawn: One of the most emotional and profound gothic rock releases of 2012. Red Sun Revival's debut is beautiful and smooth, adventureous and warm, still cold in it's core. Read a review HERE. Link: Website

Saturnus - Saturn In Ascension: There is a lot going on in this album, it's a slow sinking into some of the most melancholic and grim spaces that have ever been discovered with the sole music. It's slow, melodic, yet brutal and dark, yes, very dark. Read a review HERE. Link: Website

The 69 Eyes - X: Helsinki Vampires are back! With their latest release, X, they brought us the sound of the respected Paris Kills and spiced it up with some lighter, catchier tones. X is a release that holds a real gothic touch, alongside with passionate vocals by Jyrki69 and some heavy guitars as well. Dark, atmospheric, passionate - everything a goth n roll album is supposed to be. Read a review HERE. Link: Website

Therion - Les Fleurs Du Mal: Album that consists of covers of old French chansons and pop songs in symphonic metal version in pure extravagant Therion manner. Swedish maestro Christofer Johnsson and co. showed once again an amazing talent, this time with re-arrangement of those songs. Link: Website
