Face In The Rays (Reissue)
    Deceptive's 1997 sophomore reissued is a fascinating glimpse into pre-scene Russian Death/Doom.
    Tighter and more evolved, but still firmly enforcing Deveikuth's "Funeral Noise. Not Music." manifesto.

GA.GA.R.IN. - Galactic Gateways for Reborn Intellects
    Ambitious and as genuinely eclectic as they come, Misty Morning's debut full-length reaches far and wide.
 cdimgEndless Floods
    Endless Floods' debut offers an inhumane, urban, extreme sounding blend of Drone and Sludge/Doom Metal.

    A morbid and unsettling mix of Death Metal and Death/Doom characterises Psicorragia's second full-length.
    Consecration: big, heavy and full in your face Death/Doom at its mightiest.
cdimgAn Unbroken Threnody (Compilation)
    A hell of a package: whether you're already a fan or not, you'd be foolish to miss out on My Silent Wake's first volume of memoirs.
    A heavier and more progressive approach to Death/Doom sees Somnus Aeternus's sophomore treading interesting new ground.
