Mist Of Misery - Shackles Of Life

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

I’ve always believed that the best season to better enjoy Symphonic / atmospheric Black Metal is during summer, simply because the frozen-tinted riffing, the icy-cold atmosphere and the relentless vocal-shrieking seem to provide some relief from the sky-rocketing heat and the unbearable humidity and is able to take away some of the season’s frustration / temperature-problems. So, it seems that Swedish symphonic Black metallers MIST OF MISERY have chosen the perfect time for the release of their upcoming EP / mini album “Shackles Of Life”, throwing some of the best atmospheric tunes on the table I’ve recently heard.

Decapitated - Anticult

I believe it goes without saying that eastern European countries have established a solid tradition on giving birth to some of the greatest extreme Metal bands out there, and that, of course, Poland has its fair share among them. And even though our beloved DECAPITATED have started their route in discography by stepping exclusively on tech Death Metal territories, producing some of the best moments of the genre, it seems that they felt the need to expand their songwriting, meaning that they didn’t get trapped inside the sound that made them recognizable and successful. To me, this can only be considered as success in my book, so let’s see together what their seventh studio offering “Anticult” has in store for us...

Space Witch - Arcanum

Keeping yourself inside your comfort zone is never a good thing and the same goes to music listening. And metalheads in particular have the tendency to do exactly that, and keep their listening habits right on track and, in most cases, hate to see deviations from what they consider to be normal. I am happy to admit that this bad habit has been out of my system, and from time to time, I like to challenge myself by checking new music which has little to do with my regular listenings. My sole criterion to choose the next uncharted waters to wet my feet in is the cover artwork; if that is appealing / mysterious, then it will enter my to-check list without thinking much. This is how I ended up spinning the new SPACE WITCH LP, titled “Arcanum”, which in the beginning looked like an EP featuring just four tracks...

The Night Flight Orchestra - Amber Galactic

Yup, the mighty ‘80s are almost everywhere these days; you can find ‘80s-inspired TV series, movies’ remakes, ‘80s-laden commercials, and even fashion seems to follow the ‘80s trend, with the bold stripes and the vivid colors all over the place... So, it’s almost inevitable seeing music following this frenzy (and I’m not talking only about all these revival Synthwave bands that pop up lately like mushrooms after a rainy evening) that wants the Disco-infused decade sneaking in every aspect of our life. It seems that the modern metallers of THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA are already into this synth-heavy ’80s sound where melody and catchy grooves have the first word, and their third full length “Amber Galactic” is the palpable proof. So, let’s see what the known melodic Death Metal musicians in this lineup have in store for us here...
