PANTHEON I "From The Abyss They Rise"
Release date: August 14th 2014, Non Serviam Records 

This Release consists of b-tracks and demos that have been recorded and never released during the 10 years of the bands existence. It represents both the past and the present of Pantheon I.
Formed in late 2002 and hailing from the city of Oslo in Norway, Pantheon I is an extreme metal band that combines brutality, aggression and speed with heart-wrenching melancholy. Rather than resorting to the use of synths with string samples, the symphonic aspects of their music are highlighted by the use of the cello. The current, and very sensual, line-up is composed of KVEBEK on guitar and vocals (DEN SAAKALDTE, ex-1349), SAGSTAD on guitar (TROLLFEST, SARKOM), T.R.S. on bass (1349, DEN SAAKALDTE), MADS G on drums (THE ALL SEEING I, ZEENON), and LIVE JULIANNE on cello. 
PROTOKULT "No Beer In Heaven"
Release date: August 8th 2014, Asher Media PR

Starting as the trio of Martin Drozd (Vocals, Guitar, Synthesizer), Mike Matveev (Drums) and Dawid Slowiak (Bass), the band developed itself through numerous changes in sound and line-up. The addition of former keyboradist Gregor Darwin came when new, more mature interests in history, paganism and folklore took hold — followed by the unleashing of their debut album, Ancestral Anthems.
During a brief hiatus and writing period, the group underwent another loss, with keyboardist Gregor Darwin going off to Harvard for Celtic Studies. After a few personal struggles, in mid-2013, the members focused intensively on hammering out new material, and what could have been another demo/EP (consisting of 4 tracks previously recorded in 2012) had turned into plans for a full-length album. Clocking in at just under an hour, ‘No Beer In Heaven‘, captures the reformed quintet at an all-time high, showcasing an impressive palette of entirely new compositions, and straps the listener on an adventurous, heavy and experimental trek, diving into themes of drinking, history and human endeavor.
LELAHELL "Al Insane... The (Re)Birth Of Abderrahmane"

FRACTURED SPINE ""Memoirs Of A Shattered Mind"
Release date: August 1st 2014, Inverse Records

Starting out with instrumentals and ballads, Fractured Spine's music quickly evolved into heavier death/doom metal. However, few songs were released to the public before 2012 with one notable exception being thevery limited edition demo "Frost" in 2008.

The line-up consists of two core members Antti (instruments, vocals) and Timo (vocals), with occasional visits from session musicians and guestvocalists. All songs are recorded and mixed at the band's Studio Fracture, with only mastering, publishing and distribution given to professionals outside the band. The 2nd full-length "Memoirs Of A Shattered Mind"
continues where the debut album left off - atmospheric and melodic, taking elements from doom metal, progressive rock and shoegazing. Writing and recording the songs started before "Songs ofSlumber" was released and took 14 months to complete.

EXPAIN "Just The Tip"
Release date: June 24th 2014, Self-released/ Asher Media

There’s something to be said about technology and its ability to bring musicians together and Vancouver’s EXPAIN has Craigslist to thanks for its birth.
Mixing thrash with jazzier elements and everything in between, the band delivers music that’s energetic, diverse and thoughtful in every sense of the word. “Our music tends to be very melodic and we put a big emphasis on the songwriting, as well as the individual riffs,” says guitarist Eric Morrison.
The band’s debut album, ‘Just the Tip’, plays to its sense of humour, but also represents the beginning of a musical journey that’s not bound to stop or slow down any time soon. Writing about everything from overcoming adversity to partying hard, living in an ever-changing city and the state of today’s society as a whole, Expain has captured its true identity on record. As Morrison explains, “We go through many different concepts on this album but I think throughout all of it there is an attempt to stay hopeful and make something positive out of difficult or unpleasant situations." 
Release date: June 23th 2014, by Candlelight/ Future PR

Forming in 1994 from the ashes of death thrashers Bereaved, Irish occult metal act Abaddon Incarnate came together with the intention of becoming the fastest, most brutal band in Ireland. It was a mission thoroughly accomplished within the Irish underground by the time they released their brutal death metal debut 'The Last Supper' on the then up and coming label, Season of Mist.
Abaddon Incarnate re-emerged in 2007 with new drummer Johnny King (Altar of Plagues) and bassist Steve Finnerty and since then have completed  successful tours in Europe, Russia and South America, while also having released their fourth full length 'Cascade' and a split with legendary Orange County grinders, Phobia.
With four full-length releases and a split behind them, Abaddon Incarnate, led by founding members Bill Whelan and Steve Maher, are looking forward to the future and their Candlelight Records label debut 'Pessimist' due out June 2014. The new album was recorded and mixed in three days, with the vocals and music being done in one take to maintain a level of live intensity and maximise a very real and frantic feel. Artwork duties have fallen to Manuel Tinnemans (Deathspell Omega, Pentacle, etc.) and the lyrics on the album are the most dark and honest the band has done to date. 
SPATIAL "Silence"
Release date: June 22nd 2014, by Metal Scrap Records
Debut full-length album by the Polish Dark Doom Metal band. The album contains full spectrum of different Metal sounds; it’s unique hybrid between many different Metal genres. This is band’s trademark, which makes their songs unmistakable. It’s very hard to define their style with one word. But still there are some things that connect them all - atmosphere, melody, space, darkness and heaviness. With a little touch of dark magic, their songs receive a very unique under-sound and message. Interesting, strong guitar riffs, cosmic and “spatial” solos, mighty rhythmic section, and above all an amazing vocal. Vocal, which is not afraid of any challenges and perfectly fills this gloomy and atmospheric album, with dark incantations. The lyrics are telling a story about many important for band themes, like: hate, melancholy, life and, more than anything, death. Aggressive yet melodic stuff for all Metalheads who are searching for something unconventional. It’s highly recommended for Doom, Death or even Black Metal fanatics, especially for all those, who are looking for unknown spaces and new experiences! Musthave for fans of: Moonspell, old Tristania, Type O Negative, old Samael, and fans of early 90’s Melodic Swedish Death Metal!! Metal Scrap Records!
DE PROFUNDIS "Frequencies"
Release date: June 19th 2014, Terrorizer Magazine

Over the course of their near decade long existence DE PROFUNDIS have grown and developed at a prodigious rate, their music blossoming into ever more imaginative and challenging forms. From their roots in death and doom metal they have reached out in a multitude of diverse directions, leaving limiting genre definitions and regulations shattered in their wake. Blending unfettered creativity, fierce ambition and outstanding musicianship the band have already unleashed three magnificent albums, including the ground breaking The Emptiness Within which elevated their absorbing atmospheres, progressive thinking and breathtaking technical abilities to unprecedented levels. However, even the heights of The Emptiness Within have been surpassed by the sonic sorcery of their new four track EP, Frequencies. More devastatingly intense than anything the band have delivered before, Frequencies also manages to set new standards of technical intricacy and still be more engaging and enthralling than anything
from De Profundis’ impressive back catalogue. The band have previously played alongside the likes of Iron Maiden, Lacuna Coil, Endstille, Marduk and Immolation, impressing all who see them. They will also be making their return to Bloodstock Open Air, where they first stunned the crowd six years ago.
With the Frequencies EP De Profundis are laying down a challenge that few extreme metal bands will be able to match. And the bar may be raised even higher when their fourth full length album emerges later this year...

CREINIUM "Project Utopia"
Release date: April 16th, 2014 by Inverse Records

CREINIUM was founded in early 2012 by former band mates Aleksi Holma (drums) and Antti Myllynen (keyboards). During the spring and summer, they found the missing links to complete the band's lineup, and from April 2012 to May 2013 they recorded Creinium's first demo "Modern World Tyranny" DIY-style, piece by piece. After their first bass player left the band, Miiro Varjus took his place, recorded the bass lines, and then mixed and mastered the demo. The demo was finally released on the 14th of June 2013. It recieved positive feedback and was titled "Demo of the month" by Finnish hard rock Magazine "Inferno". Soon after that they signed a deal with Inverse Records.
Creinium combines all kinds of metal influences in their music, such as black, melodic death, death/doom, dark and progressive metal. Their music is characterized by a strong presence of keyboards, unusual song structures, abundant melodies and diverse growling vocals.
In April 2013, a few months before the release of "Modern World Tyranny", Creinium already started to record their second release, soon to be an EP called "Project Utopia". Once again, they did everything by themselves. In January 2014 it was finally finished and ready to go.

What better way to exaggerate that commonality than with an absorbing double album, inclusive of four bonus tracks?

HECATE ENTHRONED bassist, Dylan Hughes stated about the band's upcoming CD: "The new material is very much guitar-driven, lots of heavy and fast riffs (tuned to C#), giving a relentless feeling to the tracks which we have tempered with a big orchestral sound. The choirs and orchestras have always been a big part of the sound with HECATE and that is very true with this material. In some parts, it recaptures some of the moods from the very early releases. Because of the fact we are recording ourselves, we aren't pressured too much by time constraints and can spend more time on getting the right sound and mix as we feel in the past we have had to sacrifice certain things to reach a recording deadline."
HALBERD "Ruthless Game"
Release date: December 13th 2013 by Metal Scrap Records

Band HALBERD was founded in July, 2012 at St. Petersburg, as a remake of the band Brain's Damage, from Omsk, which was attended by guitarist
Denis Ivanov. The musical direction was not discussed initially it was decided that it would be Thrash Metal in the most classical of its manifestation. Over a relatively short period, the band gathered material and musicians began to record their debut EP. The recording was completed in January, 2013 and in March of the same year was recorded one more track "The Time Of Temptation", with the participation of another guitarist from the same Brain's Damage, Ruslan Tebenkov (now Metropolis, Omsk) .
During the year of existence the band’s line up changed several times and eventually found the right people willing to make common cause and do not stop at reached. Band took part in many concerts, both local and visiting. In autumn 2013, HALBERD signed a contract with Ukrainian label Metal Scrap Records. Mini-album "Ruthless Game" was released December 13, 2013
ALGHAZANATH "The Three-Faced Pilgrim"
Release date: 13th December 2013, Inverse Records/ Woodcut Records

ALGHAZANATH has been in existence for 18 years and has throughout its rather lengthy lifespan incorporated elements of the more melodic kind into its more or less traditional brand of black metal. The lyrical aspects of Alghazanth have always revolved around Satanism and all that it entails, but just like the musical expression itself has been refined, also the blade of the Living Word has become sharper as the years have gone by... Alghazanth has released a total of seven full-length albums. Even though the basic components have remained somewhat the same on all seven albums, the current approach took shape after The Polarity Axiom when half of the sextet parted ways with the band and the responsibility over the compositions moved wholly onto Grimort and Thasmorg’s shoulders. Adapting to such drastic changes took some time but it was clear right from the start that all this was only for the best. The three most recent albums certainly stand testament to this fact.
The Three-faced Pilgrim is not only lyric- and musicwise Alghazanth’s strongest album, it also symbolically marks a new revolution of the wheel as, after over a decade of concentrating solely on the guitar, Thasmorg is now handling the vocals again. In addition, he also switched from the role of a guitarist to that of a bass-player. This change, along with Mordant joining the ranks to share the guitar duties with Grimort, brought a welcomed breath of fresh air into the rehearsal space. When the time came to start recording the new tracks, a decision was made to find someone new to work with, someone who would be exactly on the same page as the band. It so happened that the person to fill these shoes was not entirely new as Jari “Tupi” Tuomainen, the engineering wizard behind the seventh full-length album, worked as an intern at Tico Tico studio back in 1998 when Alghazanth was there recording Thy Aeons Envenomed Sanity. New line-up adjustments and different decisions in production elevated Alghazanth’s sound to a new level – and the evidence to back up this claim is for all to hear on the brand-new offering, The Three-faced Pilgrim.

The album is something of a rollercoaster ride through the ups and downs of our minds, and at times we even stop to think about serious things in a larger scale.

MAD HATTER'S DEN "Welcome to The Den"
Release date: November 22nd 2013, by Inverse Records

Mad Hatter's Den is a melodic heavy metal band from Finland. The band draws musical influences from classic metal bands like Iron Maiden,Judas Priest, Accept, Dio and Rainbow, but that's not the whole story. The music of Mad Hatter's Den owes in style and sound to heavier 1980's thrash/speed metal bands like Megadeth and Anthrax as well. Some songs have been inspired by progressive rock from bands like Rush, and their line-up with a keyboard player also carries some classical elements into the music.Mad Hatter's Den always delivers nice hard rock tunes, great riffs and catchy melodies for their fans, but the band's ambition is to satisfy the more demanding listeners as well. The depth of Mad Hatter's Den'smusic, with an abundance of different elements inside their songs, is a surprise for most, and even a challenge for some. Influences from bands like Alice Cooper and King Diamond certainly add some very nice flavours to Mad Hatter's Den's sound.The band started playing in 2010, but all the pieces of the puzzle fell in place two years later, when vocalist Taage Laiho joined the band. Mad Hatter's Den released The Dark Wheel EP in 2012 and the Stone Cold Flame single in early 2013. Their EP was very well received live, and critically acclaimed as well. Mad Hatter's Den's new album Welcome to the Den reveals a much wider scale of styles and also has stronger song material. The album includes 10 songs, of whichone is an instrumental.Are you ready to step inside the Den?

Release date: November 15th 2013, by Inverse Records

A project that started out in 2004 as two guys playing and experimenting with grindcore, GORESOERD has quickly evolved into the spearhead of intelligent, vicious and tongue-in-cheek extreme music in the Estonian scene. Goresoerd’s music can be described as a truly eclectic feast with influences varying from mainstream rock to crust hardcore. Hectic, hyper-driven and entertaining live shows have paved the way for the band’s success. In February 2010 Goresoerd unleashed its second full-length, entitled „Tüdruk ja Surm” („Maiden And Death”), backed by an unerring sense of hit-worthiness and the solid punch delivered in the lyrics by the legendary and infamous Estonian writer Sven Kivisildnik — resulting in a bizarre „rock opera” involving lethally precise death metal riffing, catchy melodic soloing and violent, varied vocal hooks, wherein all possible borders between the real and the grotesque come down in a sickly bout ofgallows-humor.

YGODEH "The Experiment Interrupted"
Release date: November 2013, by Inverse Records

YGODEH was founded in October of 2009 by Pavel Stepanov aka “Piton” after scrapping his previous symphonic metal band “Disease”, which is reported to be the longest lived metal project in Daugavpils up to now and having a pivotal influence on the local rock-scene. He invited Victor “Feka” Rinkevich (ex-“SvinKTR”) to perform the vocal and lyrics writing duties, thus, forming the core of the band, which immediately focused on studio work and recording fresh material together. Right from the start “YGODEH” proved a daring challenge to the stylistic versatility and compositional complexity mainly due to Pitons passion for experimentation and extensive use of additional symphonic elements. In February 2012, Ygodeh found just that in Andre.S Cura aka “Serberus” (ex-BlackDespair), allowing them to perform for the first time as a live band on stage at Surface festival 2012. Receiving nothing but great responses from audiences they began recording their second album with Serberus. With his mechanical vocal delivery it made the second album a step into the experimental direction. Receiving good reviews from critics in France, UK and Russia it landed them as the most played band in the Russian Heavy Metal Guide February 2013. In the meantime they have just announced to have recorded a cover of “Symbolic” by death metal band Death, which is to be released soon. A tour is also in the works to support “The Experiment Interrupted” album. Much like its name, Ygodeh’s sound is extremely enigmatic. Whilst
incorporating different genres of metal it seamlessly flows unpredictably into something unique, mesmerising and unforgettable.

Release date: October 29th 2013 by Pagan Records

Poland based black metal band MORD'A STIGMATA released their new, third album “Ansia” on the 29th of October 2013 via Pagan Records. Featuring five tracks with over 47 minutes playing time, “Ansia” is a multifaceted album that explores disturbing, hypnotic music with expansive experimentation rooted in black metal, but it goes much further than that. Mord’A’Stigmata is an impressive band, taking the black metal framework and pushing it into the psychedelic, avant-garde and experimental territories. Mord’A’Stigmata was formed in autumn 2004 in Bochnia, Poland by Static, Sickil, Doom L. Voxmord Stigmator V’nderer and Sadist, each of them connected to the local black metal scene. Since the very beginning, the aim of a group was to make music different than the sounds of other extreme metal bands. This resulted in incorporating influences of electronic music and synthesis of various other genres. In 2008 the band releases their debut album “Überrealistic”, and in the same year the firstline-up has almost broken up. New members gave the band new possibilities and brand new music tastes, which culminated with “Antimatter”, an album recorded by Static, Silencer, Ion, DQensemble and released in 2011. This particular line-up persists in almost the same form until today, and it still explores disturbing, hypnotic music.
In 2013 Mord’A’Stigmata signs with Pagan Records to release third full-length album “Ansia”.
Release date: October 29th 2013

Inspired by the writings of some of the world’s most renowned authors, including H.P. Lovecraft, H.G. Wells, Homer among many others. 'Tales' explores a more melodic and progressive sound than ever before, but still staying true to the group’s extreme aggression roots. The follow-up to 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts, demonstrates TRIBUNE’s brawn and brains with a collusion of extremity and accessibility.
As the band’s appetite for more extreme metal
increased, bands like Carcass, Death and At The Gates began bleeding into their melting pot of influences, resulting in a fresh take on their fine metal sound, which can be heard echoing inthe depths of TRIBUNE’s Tales.

The first full-length album of Ukrainian Groove Metal / Metalcore band. Ten tracks bringing hurricane of guitar riffs, drum’s groove and vocal chanting. Starting with the first track you sink into the ocean of drive and powerful energy that does not let you go until the very end. Music that combines technically riffs and melodic solos; bright vocals spilling over from the truly heavy and hard to subtle and exquisite. No intro, no breaks, just the music without restrictions.
The main lyrical themes are divided into two opposites - the destruction and creation. This line is permeated the entire album. Poetry itself is fascinating and at the same time frightening. There’re affected the sickest threads of society: self-destruction, war, collapses. However at the album was found a place for ballad that will not leave anyone indifferent. All this creates a unique atmosphere in which everyone can find something of their own, immersing in the world of music created by MOROR band.

UNBEING "Unbeing"
Release date: October 1st 2013 (Self-realised)

UNBEING: Rising out of Montreal’s bubbling metal underground, it can be said that Unbeing have been through it all. Starting out as a three-piece, members came and went, two demos were released to an overwhelmingly positive response, the band won Metal Académie 2 – a
two-month-long competition where the band impressed both the audience and esteemed metal judges such as Kataklysm to take home top honors – then decided to shake things up again. Taking the judges’ advice to heart, Unbeing opted to no longer continue sacrificing their creative liberties, removing vocals all-together to finally discovered its true nature in the form of a five-piece ProgEpic InstruMetal band. But alas, seven years after the birthing cries of Unbeing tore holes in the fabric of space and time, individually and as a whole, they have overcome hardships, laughed in the face of danger and stomped on the charred corpse of impossibility. In 2011, the band released its debut full-length album (now set for re-release in 2013) before solidifying its name in the metal community as afive-piece outfit.
BLISS OF FLESH "Beati Pauperes Spiritu"
Release date: October 1st 2013 by Season of Myst

BLISS OF FLESH spreads a brutal and insane Black Death metal on the European extreme music scene for several years now. After their debut album“Emaciated Deity” unanimously acclaimed by criticism, they profess the coitus with their new album "Beati pauperes spiritu". This brutal and ecstatic album will awake the miasma of your guts and eradicate all light in your soul. Let’s walk on the paths to expiation and embrace your guilt.

« Beati pauperes spiritu quoniam ipsorum est regnum caelorum »
"Blessed in spirit are the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens" - Beati Pauperes Spiritu is a word of the Christ in the Gospel (St. Matthew 5:3) as well as the chant resounding during the ascent of the Mount Purgatory in Dante Alighieri's trilogy (Purgatory, Canto XII). Souls find rest only to the detriment of Reason and of Truth, abandoning their consciences just as we relieve ourselves of a heavy burden.

In the first album Emaciated Deity, we explored the human soul's miasmas and the internal conflict between morality and acceptance of evil which lies in each of us. Beati Pauperes Spiritu focused on repentance and guilt and wonders about the legitimacy of forgiveness. This album is a hymn to humiliation, shame and suffering.The 9 tracks of this opus accompany the audience on this initiatory and tortured road to expiation. The outcome belongs to you: follow the path of peace and stupidity or the one of chaos and truth. Our path is chosen... https://www.facebook.com/BLISSOFFLESH

COLD FEET CONTROL " Tales of Brokenhearted, Part II"
Release date: September 20th 2013, by
Inverse Records

COLD FEET CONTROL was formed in 2011 by a bunch of good friends who wanted to play a different style of metalcore. Four months after the band was formed, they went in to the studio to record their first debute EP "Shake it, Shake it!" which got a very good acceptance from the fans. Tales of the Brokenhearted was released on the 1st of January 2013 and the third EP, Tales of the Brokenhearted part 2 will be released on the 20th of September 2013. Juuso (the songwriter) tries to write always more brutal and heavier riffs but manages then always drop in some really deep and beautiful melodies with the guitar. So we guess then thats how the songs end up to become easy to listen to. The lyrics then deal about normal everyday life subjects. Some lyrics are more about our personal stuff, things that have happen in life and things what we think happen around us.For an example "What kind of drink is absinthe" song from Shake it! Shake it!-ep simply is a story about what we think might happen when you drink that crazy drink.
Then again "Bridges Burned" from our latest EP "Tales of the Brokenhearted" is a song about a failed relationship. We just try to give people a new way to think to be honest and maybe some people cannotice that they can find their own life situations in the songsand in that way adapt to the lyrics.

Travelling from Yukon to Nova Scotia may just be the greatest – in scale and awesomeness – trip any Canadian could ever imagine undertaking in their home country and yet, for SANKTUARY, one of legendary extreme metal label Spread the Metal Records’ latest additions, it was all just part of their musical journey.
Spawning from high school friendship and growing into something much more epic, Sanktuary kicked things off with two back-to-back EPs – 2009′s self-titled release and 2010′s Black Magic Brew – and soon
followed that up with a massive move from Whitehorse, Yukon to Halifax, Nova Scotia.
After touring the country following their epic relocation and being faced with a major blow in Toronto that saw their van and nearly all their gear get stolen, Sanktuary turned things around with a third EP in 2011, Tundrastruck, (a 3 way split with Black Moor and Metallian) and signing with Spread the Metal Records in 2012, which sent them all the way back to Whitehorse to begin recording their soon to be released debut full-length album, Something Fierce out this summer 2013.

FATALITY "Psychonaut"
Release date: June 28th 2013 (Self-release)

Toronto, Canada’s high-energy, modern thrash monsters FATALITY have been cranking out wise-cracking, beer-drenched nightmares together since 2003. Known for their wild, riotous live performances and their peerless work ethic, they have been independently booking and promoting their own shows, creating great merch, touring North America, and making some great tunes along the way. Few bands embody the DIY spirit as fully as Fatality consistently do, and no other bands have as much fun working their asses off.
In early 2012, the band began writing a brand-new full-length, unquestionably their most ambitious project to date.
Smarter, stronger and musically tighter than ever, Fatality are now ready to unleash their sophomore album on their adoring public. Entitled Psychonaut, their new record is at once a darker and more mature effort, with more complex arrangements and sophisticated concepts that still retains their trademark energy and commitment to drunken mayhem. Tracks like “Thoughts Collide” and “Before The Collapse” delve deep into the sodden minds of their creators, bubbling with the strange alchemy of pop culture. Set to be released June 28th, 2013 Psychonaut is an exploration of the inner landscape of the mind, where addled thoughts and horror-polluted dreams are held up to musical scrutiny. Monstrous, ambitious, and sardonically funny as ever, Fatality are taking their unique sound and boundless energy to the next level.

In the summer of 2012, the band entered the studio and recorded 6 unholy plague hymns for their debut mini CD “Ashed”. By early 2013, Ov Plagues signed with underground label Seven Gates of Hell to release “Ashed” worldwide.

On their debut album, The Healing Powers of Hate, which is set for a June 4 release, BornBroken play out not only what life has given them but also what they want to give back: truth, integrity, perseverance, loyalty and faith in humanity’s struggle for equality.“We try to keep with tradition on this release and bring back a true dry metal sound, upfront loud guitars, drums in your face and a singer that can be distinguished from the rest,” says guitarist Mike Decker of The Healing Powers of Hate.“BornBroken is the beaten and the fallen overcoming their outlook of a blackened tomorrow,” he explains of the band’s vision and goals. “Taking sorrow and anger and rising up from the ashes to rebuild and heal a new world from one that’s crumbling down around us now.” It’s a truly powerful message delivered by one of the metal world’s most powerful new bands. Get ready to experience the magic moment when, finally, the broken shall rise.

Release date: May/ June 2013 by Metal Scrap Records

The debut full-length album of Moscow Gothic Doom Black Metal project. The music of this mysterious and magical formation offers us to feel the contrast between the beauty and the ugliness, between joyful sadness and truly desolation. You can compare it with Estatic Fear, Autumn Rain Melancholy, but you won't find one and the same sound or guitar cliché. If you know, what emptiness and despair really means, it'll tell you, who hides inside of you. Walk through the cold alleys of solitude, feel the wet leaf fall of empty hopes and sleepless nights,
open the door into the abyss of long nightmares and endless His Majesty Dusk's halls. Get ready… The darkness is coming…

Płyta „The Last Days of War” ukaże się 20 maja nakładem Hellthrasher Productions.Nowy krążek Finów to 8 zupełnie nowych nagrań, perfekcyjnie balansujących pomiędzy szybkim, zwartym death metalem, a majestatycznym doomem, przesiąkniętym duchem Asphyx, Hail of Bullets i Bolt Thrower. W warstwie lirycznej zespół kontynuuje ścieżkę obraną na dwóch poprzednich płytach, podejmując ponownie tematykę Pierwszej i Drugiej Wojny Światowej, tym razem z perspektywy ostatnich wydarzeń - m.in. bitwy pod Paschendale, lądowania w Normandii czy ofensywy w Ardenach. Jak zapowiada lider zespołu, Matias Nastolin: „To zdecydowanie najmocniejsza i najlepiej wyprodukowana pozycja w naszej dyskografii. Proces twórczy trwał nieco dłużej niż w przypadku naszych poprzednich albumów, dzięki czemu płyta jest bardziej dopracowana i wyważona, a jednocześnie nadal bardzo świeża i energetyczna.

Debiutancki album krakowskiej death metalowej ekipy Dormant Ordeal, który chcąc zachować niezależność artystyczną zdecydował się na samodzielne wydanie i dystrybucję materiału.

Miks i mastering to już grudzień, kiedy materiał powędrował do warszawskiego Progresja Studio pod opiekę Pawła „Janosa” Grabowskiego, znanego ze współpracy z takimi zespołami jak Gortal czy Masachist.
Dormant Ordeal powstał w 2005 r. jako jednoosobowy projekt obecnego perkusisty zespołu, aby po wydaniu dwóch materiałów demo (Demo I w 2005 r. oraz Rotten Hearts rok później) stać się wreszcie pełnoprawnym zespołem w roku 2009. Po kilku nieuniknionych przetasowaniach skład zamknął się ostatecznie w czterech osobach: Maciek Proficz – wokale, Maciek Nieścioruk – gitary/wokale, Kacper Działdowski – bas i Radek Kowal – perkusja. Już pod koniec 2009 r. zaprezentowane zostało
pierwsze promo o nazwie More to Come.
