In the spotlight

AEON SABLE

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.

Album of the month - December 2018


Band: Súl Ad Astral
Album title: Oasis
Release date: 12 December 2018
Label: Flowing Downward

Súl Ad Astral is different, still it can be roughly labeled as blackgaze, but in reality it's way more than just that. The music of this act is simply transcedental, such a cohesive, lush and flowing blend of many forms of blackened and atmospheric metal. Oasis is an adventure, it's as emotional as it's intense, it can be extreme in one moment and deeply sensitive in another. Stephen and Michael guide the listener through eight tracks, some of them are proper epic creations, with such a sense for sonic harmony that it simply grabs the listener and it doesn't let go so easily. Elements of black metal are used as a basis, but post-rock, shoegaze, death/thrash metal, doom metal, heavy, progressive metal and yet more are so smoothly connected between each other. All of the tracks on this album are as well from the compositional point true masterpieces, Súl Ad Astral have that much needed creative vein to make perfect dramatic building up in tension songs that are so very dynamic and technically perfective as much as they are smooth. Súl Ad Astral are a true revelation in the field of everything blackened in metal music.

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
