A MORS ET BELLO

Mexican band A Mors Et Bello was established by vocalist and bassist Alverdark in 1998. First called Divine Blood, Alverdark, Serpent and Siner, made some local presentations without materializing their sound. With the return of the drummer, guitarist and composer Andras Mors from the United States in 1999, Alverdark decided to give the band a new name: A Mors Et Bello. The band then decided to record an EP with two new members, Seyer and Olaznogh, titled this material Dominazione Di Satanas. Soon after the EP's release (2001), Seyer and Olaznogh decided to leave the band due to personal issues. The remaining A Mors Et Bello's members Andras Mors and Alverdark then recorded a debut album called Sounds Of Horror, released in 2005.

A Mors Et Bello's music will be presented in the radio show [Dark] UNKNOWN this Thursday, 13 May at 22.00 (CET) on Terra Relicta Radio.

SAIGON BLUE RAIN

French act Saigon Blue Rain was formed by Ophélie Lecomte and Franck Pelliccioli in September 2012 as Stupid Bitch Reject. Six months later, its first self-titled EP got released on Afmusic. A couple of months before the debut album What I Don't See release on Cold Insanity Music in September 2014, the duo decided to rename the band from Stupid Bitch Reject to Saigon Blue Rain. While the initials, which proved to be lucky ones, stayed the same, the music style changed - what was the reason for changing the band's name in the first place. The same kind of ethereal vocals now combined with highly emotive new/coldwave with some post-punk, darkwave, shoegaze and some gothic rock.

Cradle Of Filth - The Manticore And Other Horrors: What more to say about this British masters of extreme gothic metal that hasn't been said before? This album can easily cope with their most praised albums like  Nymphetamine for example. Cradle Of Filth are back in all their glory! Link: Website


Enslaved - RIITIIR: Another masterpiece from those Norway based premium progressive black metallers. A bit more difficult, even more progressive and complex than their ultimate previous masterwork Axioma Ethica Odini, but still one hell of an album. One of the best extreme metal albums of the year 2012, absolutely! Link: Website


Lacrimosa - Revolution: Masters of gothic Lacrimosa are back with their eleventh studio album. Revolution is not an easy listen, it needs to be devoted into it and only then it offers amazing sonic experience. This album also shows kind of revolution in Lacrimosa's sound, as it is much heavier than last few albums of theirs. Read a review HERE. Link: Website


My Dying Bride - A Map Of All Our Failures: Gloom & doom like we are used from legends My Dying Bride. Epic soundscapes of sorrow and pain, darkness and beauty. The band proves once again that they haven't lost their touch after strange ambiental Evinta. Link: Website


Tiamat - The Scarred People: One of the most anticipated albums of 2012. It was worth waiting for this one. In its core this is one of the darkest Tiamat albums, but paradoxically also the one that holds huge amount of positive power. Atmospheric gothic rock and doom metal at its best! Read a review HERE. Link: Website


Valkiria - Here The Day Comes: Black metal, gothic and doom metal marvelous mixture. Such an outstanding musicianship cannot be missed and beside The Foreshadowing they should take the leading role in  Italian dark music spectrum. It would really be a disgrace to miss this dark gem.
