An Empty Frame
    Slick, polished and continuously evolving, Soliloquium's Melodeath/Doom debut full-length takes them up and forward.
 cdimgAlteration (EP)
    A dynamic instrumental journey through light and shade: Khaldera's spacy, atmospheric Post-rock.

For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages
    SubRosa return with their most Doom-oriented album to date, which proves to be yet another masterpiece.
 cdimgCast Away Souls
    Cardinal Wyrm's latest full-length is a daring, but mostly successful, Doom-based exploration.

    A reminder that Windhand's sophomore, though a few years old now, was a true Stoner Doom classic.
    This tape-only Gothic curiosity is the only legacy of long-defunct Lithuanian band Ars Moriendi.
cdimgMors Vocat
    The all-female Saturnine witches unleash a monstrously punishing Sludge/Death/Black debut.
 cdimgThe Shadow Over Innsmouth
    They may have forgotten to add the Lovecraft vibe, but Bretus certainly found the Reverend Bizarre one.

2016-09-20 : Interview with Magma Rise
"Magma Rise could be a new name to some of our readers, but two of its founders were members of the now-inactive first Hungarian Doom metal band, Mood, from 1993 onwards. So, be sure that these men know how to play slow and heavy..."

2016-09-18 : Interview with Swampcult
"I've seen Lovecraft's legacy mangled far more frequently than it's been continued, so when Swampcult came up with a real quality musical interpretation straight from the Mythos, I wanted to find out more about the source of their many-angled visions..."
2016-09-18 : Interview with Dawn Of Winter
So, maybe you're wondering why you haven't heard anything about this band, if they've been on the scene for 25 years? The answer is simple...there are only two full-length albums in their discography. I heard they were recording new songs, and the idea to do this interview was spontaneous."
2016-09-08 : Interview with Wolf Counsel
"The release of sophomore album 'Ironclad' seemed like the perfect opportunity to take a closer look at the project and ask some in-depth questions."
