OFFICIUM TRISTE

The Death Of Gaia

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Transcending Obscurity Records, 2019)

Officium Triste's previous album, "Mors Viri", was excellent doom/death/funeral, part Peaceville Three (Anathema, My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost) stylings part early Swallow The Sun and Katatonia (the latter technically, also Peaceville) for a work of incredible finesse, beauty, melodic harmony and heavy metal craft. Crafted a whopping 6 years later, "The ...

QAYIN REGIS

Doctrine

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(BlackSeed Productions, 2019)

This 4-track debut album by the Spanish black metal occultists Qayin Regis turned out to be a pretty damn wicked surprise to yours truly. Its intriguing and deeply unsettling artwork was instantly appealing and I had a feeling that I was in for a morose treat as I pressed play, which, ...

QUIET RIOT

Hollywood Cowboys

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Frontiers Records, 2019)

In hard rock and heavy metal circles, Quiet Riot is a cool and well-respected phenomenon and for good reason as these guys have churned out some classic and much-loved records over the years, and the 2017 effort entitled “Road Rage” definitely proved that these guys could still rock with the best ...

NIHILISM

Apocalyptic Fate

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Great Dane Records, 2019)

Great Dane Records have unearthed some pretty damn solid extreme metal releases these last few years and “Apocalyptic Fate” by the French death metal squadron known as Nihilism is no different. This is a rumbling, rotten, and thoroughly old-school record loaded with lethal riffs, morbid atmospheres, and slightly ambiguous lyrics that ...

FOREIGNER

Double Vision: Then and Now Live. Reloaded

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(earMusic, 2019)

The marvelous Foreigner surely need no introduction as these guys are responsible for crafting some of the most cherished and memorable (hard) rock tunes known to man, and ever since the band's inception back in 1976, guitarist and musical visionary Mick Jones has kept Foreigner on the road and in the ...

THE DARK ELEMENT

Songs the Night Sings

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Frontiers Records, 2019)

Featuring the skilled Anette Olzon (ex-Nightwish) and Jani Liimatainen (ex-Sonata Arctica), The Dark Element dabbles in symphonic metal with sing-along choruses aplenty and subtle progressive undertones to it, and this 11-track LP has a rather modern and polished sheen to it. Many strong ...

FEN

The Dead Light

Anmeldt av Eddie Rattlehead
(Prophecy Productions, 2019)

Fen's previous album, "Winter" (2017), made significant waves among the progressive black metal fans, because of its unique combination of delicate, dreamy shoegazing passages with brutal and uncompromising black metal, but the band still lacked clear compositional direction. On "The Dead Light", released this month, Fen provides that direction while not ...

PINK FLOYD

The Later Years 1987-2019

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(Pink Floyd Records / Parlophone Records, 2019)

This single CD set by the legendary Pink Floyd, which is culled from the huge and expansive box set bearing the same title that was recently released, is an interesting collection of cuts and tracks by the Gilmour/Mason/Wright-led line-up (or the 1987-2019 era, if you will) and nicely illustrates the many ...

ONIRICOUS

La Maldición

Anmeldt av Jens Nepper
(BlackSeed Productions, 2019)

This vile and nasty 6-track mini LP/CD by the Spanish death metal warmongers known as Oniricous turned out to be a really wicked surprise in that it offers well-written, memorable, and hugely atmospheric tunes that hearken back to the glory days of the aforementioned genre. With an emphasis on raw brutality ...
