King Dude - Sex (2016)

Band: King Dude
Album title: Sex
Release date: 28 October 2016
Label: Ván Records (Europe)/Not Just Religious Music (USA)

A dark haze, that hovers over very intense feelings of fullness and pain. An intriguing mind, above worldly coincidences. Not everyone in his life is capable to achieve this level of omniscience. Since the beginning of his career in the band Book Of Black Earth in mid-2003, he showed that he was not just one more among many. After about three years, TJ Cowgill, the mastermind behind King Dude, actually started his unique project in folk tradition. King Dude uses his bewitched dark folk sound with primal archetypes, to explore the depths of human feelings. His ability to combine influential elements of country, blues, dark folk and traditional hymns with metal beats, creating deeply resonant music, makes the art of King Dude impossible to go unnoticed.From the beginning, the art of King Dude is in constant evolution and change.

Band: Ison
Album title: Cosmic Drone [EP]
Release date: 8 June 2015
Label: Self-Released

It was expected in a way that nothing else but a pure sonic beauty can came out from the two likeminded artists, Heike Langhans, known from her solo project Lorelei and as the new vocalist of the Swedish gothic/doom metal masters Draconian, and Daniel Änghede who's the main force behind electro/shoegaze/goth duo Hearts Of Black Science and member of Crippled Black Phoenix. The music of Ison is mainly inspired by drone, goth, ambient, post-rock and shoegaze, but with Heike's deep fascination towards astral planes and universe everything gains a completely new dimension. Everything flows with such ease, yet has the power to hypnotize with its dark charm and eerie atmosphere. Great compositional skills by both artists shine with a mesmerizing combination of guitars, synths and electronica where every single guitar chord, let it be acoustic or heavily distorted, every echoing pulse, cold spherical piano touch and every single beat, with all those perfectly arranged spacey synths and beautifully balanced almost ethereal vocals, all of those and yet all other elements which are only waiting to penetrate your mind are in pitch perfect symbiosis to force the listener to close eyes and submit to the world without cellphone reception or windows to tell if it´s day or night, to the location of total isolation to the outside world.
