Dark Funeral - Where Shadows Forever Reign (2016)

Band: Dark Funeral
Album title: Where Shadows Forever Reign
Release date: 3 June 2016
Label: Century Media Records

Dark funeral is back darker and heavier than ever before! Their new album Where Shadows Forever Reign, is the name that will circulate for a long time in people's minds. The album has a clear crisp sound , with loads of throwbacks to the old days of the bands entire discography, but still this one is nothing like you would expect from a Dark Funeral record. Every song literally stands on its own. Catchy riffs and melancholic melodic guitar riffs are all over and it seems that Lord Ahriman has really been busy and overdone himself. The songs are more organic than on previous records and perhaps more balanced as well. Many fans will be happy to hear the new record and many older hardcore fans will find themsleves back to the band, while this one will most certainly also reach further to new audience.

Band: Ahab
Album title: The Boats Of The Glen Carrig
Release date: 28 August 2015
Label: Napalm Records

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, maybe one of the best in this genre. There's often present a certain dose of humour in Ahab's output, even though being well hidden behind the explicit use of psychedelic, sludge and horror elements, but yet you can sense it anyway. Ahab this time composed their boldest album to date, it's not the darkest one they ever made but still there are almost no light moments. The Boats Of The Glen Carrig is not an easy album to consume, it's a complex work, more than anything else these Germans ever did. They used a much larger palette of different elements and they put those together with perfection. 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.
