^ Thanks for the update on this! I've been checking on Vintersorg here and there to see the progress on this and I'm happy to see that Till Fjälls pt II is complete!! I'm more interested in the Vargatron classics, so I'll definitely be buying this!!

 

Odemarkens Son is also gonna be available on vinyl *_* I may have to get that too since I happen to have a record player...

Vampire - With Primeval Force

With Primeval Force sees Vampire return to form, and they've managed to renew themself quite a bit. It's raw, it's epic and it's melodic, and it balances these elements really nicely throughout the album. I'd wish for a rawer production, but it works really well. It doesn't sound nearly as soulless or flat as their debut album.

 

Btw, there is a certain Castlevania feeling throughout this album. At least I think so.

Droid - Terrestrial Mutations

I recommended this band some pages back when I was speaking of Vektor, and Droid are finally releasing their debut album. Not as agressive as Vektor, but they still have a certain Vektor-esque feeling to them. But they're more speed metal-oriented, and they actually sound a bit like Voivod too, unlike Vektor.

 

Beautiful cover art! Looks awesome.

My first impression of With Primeval Force is meh, pretty good but I need to give it more time maybe. The cover art is mind blowing though, absolutely stunning work!

The embedded track sounds really good, will definitely keep an eye on these guys and I'm looking forward to check out this album. And yeah, beautiful cover art.

Any A7X, FFDP or I See Stars fans?

Used to listen a lot to FFDP and I See Stars (more the first than the second) but I can't stand them now. A7X's latest album is truly great though, I keep coming back to it every once in a while and I really dig it. Btw, I really didn't like it the first time I gave it a go, but then it kept growing on me till I ended up enjoying it as I do now.

I'm not a fan of teasers like this, but this sounds promising. Emyn Muil plays epic black metal in the vein of Summoning, Caladan Brood, Kinstrife & Blood and Nazgûl, which tells you all about the sound of the band. Also heavily inspired by Tolkien of course.

 

Emyn Muil's debut Túrin Turambar Dagnir Glaurunga isn't all that to be honest. There's a shitload of good music on the album, but a lot of the songs are way too short. When you play black metal like this you need some lenght on your songs to be able to build the songs properly. The longer tracks (6+ minutes) are very good, but the shorter tracks leaves something to be desired for sure. 10 tracks, 52 minutes.

 

The upcoming album Elenion Ancalima have 5 songs clocking in at 41 minutes. 3, 14, 7, 8 and 8 minutes. So the track lenghts are there for sure, and from the teaser the songs are there too. Sounds more Summoning-esque than the debut too, which I will always consider a good thing. I am really looking forward to this album.

Shiiiit finally something new from these guys!! That's really some amazing news to wake up to. And I agree about their debut, feels somewhat short but that doesn't bother me personally. I enjoy as it is. 

 

And damn that teaser sounds really good, I'm truly looking forward to listen the whole thing because I'm confident this will be as solid as their debut (if not better). Also loving the artworks, look kind of minimalistic and that's pretty cool (like the one of their debut, which I prefer by the way). 

 

Now because of this I'll be spinning their debut like there's no tomorrow. It was about fucking time I'd be getting back to it. Yasss!

Alright guys, as expected Schammasch announced a new EP to come out on the 9th of June.

 

I'm quoting their post on Facebook: 

Quote

 

With last year's release of Triangle the numerological trilogy I - II - III has been closed. Different territories are about to be explored in the future, beginning with the first work of a series of records entitled "The Maldoror Chants". As the title clearly tells, the concept of those records is based on the grand novel "Les Chants de Maldoror", one of surrealism's dire fathers and up to this day one of the biggest literary mysteries and outgrowths. Having been an inspiration to Schammasch ever since Contradiction, the times have come to give this inspiration the room it deserves. Each record will follow one specific moment of the book, the first one being "Hermaphrodite", a short story which appears aside the main story line in the book's first half.

From a musical point of view these records are to be seen as an artistic experiment, apparently deriving from a different place than what we've done so far. Focus lies on telling instead of singing, atmosphere instead of technique, flow instead of structure. Don't expect anything but explore everything.

"The Maldoror Chants: Hermaphrodite" will be released on the 9th of June, available in various pre-sale formats over our web store: http://schammasch.com/store/

 

I just love how these guys keep experimenting and getting better with time, they're certainly one of my favorite bands and among the best in the extreme metal in the last years scene. I'm really curious on how the new EP will sound, the description of it is very interesting. My expectations for this new release can't be any higher, it's Schammasch after all.

 

 

Triangle was, for me, the greatest thing I've listened in 2016 and this 30 seconds preview pisses me off because it sounds so fucking promising. 

 

I think you get it now: I'm. So. Fucking. Stoked.

The clean vocals is way too low in the mix, but musically this sounds great. It's not a new Til Fjälls, but it sure does sound like Vintersorg, and when I say that I mean the folky era of the band.  And it sounds really fucking nice, despite being a bit overproduced. But you know, this is how I want my Vintersorg and I really fucking like it. Give me the entire album, fuckers!
