The Millennial Heartbeat (EP)
    German Epic Doom band Flame, Dear Flame deliver a stunningly effective female-fronted debut EP.
 cdimgThe Wraith Uncrowned
    A beautifully-crafted dive into the inferno, A Dream Of Poe's latest Gothic/Doom opus is transfixing.

Voidward Spin
    Big, bold and maybe a bit too fast for Doom purists, Grave Siesta nonetheless present their own personal darkness with a punch.
 cdimgDestined For The Grave
    A powerful and huge debut full-length from Finland's Earthbound Machine - one to grab while it's still available!

Ruins Of Faith (EP, Re-release)
    Tantalisingly brief, but packed with intriguingly creepy retro/Stoner occult vibes, Mother Witch... really deliver with this EP.
    Tel's full-length debut is a commanding and mature venture into adventurous and eclectic Sludge/Doom.
cdimgDemoni (EP)
    Harsh, insane and dark: the debut EP from Finnish solo project Kalmo is not easy listening.
 cdimgNameless (Split with Doomcult)
    A well-worked and complementary split from Doomcult and Talsur, two industrious contemporary Doom bands.

A band featuring MDB stalwarts Hamish and Shaun, exploring music based more on their various stints with Solstice - that has to be an interesting prospect, right? Comrade Aleks certainly thinks so.
