New track A whisper in the evening by synopsys (full album to be released May 17th)

2017-04-11 04:45:22 UTC


Some things can't be explained… To understand Synopsys you must listen to their music, feel the pictures, capture the quiet and sustain heaviness. Those atmospheres build themselves on a paradox, shadow & light, the infinitely big & the infinitely small, things to say that we cannot say, the balance & the fall. These unavoidable meetings are translated into as captivating as lightning sounds.

synopsys  will release their first full length album « Le temps du rêve » on May 17th 2017. The album will come with a full length film to illustrate it. "A whisper in the evening" is their first  title on Bandcamp  along with a  music video for the  title « Leviathan »

Track List

A whisper in the evening - 06:34

Genre : metal, rock, experimental, post-hardcore, post-metal, post-rock, shoegaze

Debut album - Ordeal & Plight by Ordeal & Plight

2017-02-11 04:32:33 UTC


Ordeal & Plight are an instrumental Post-Rock/Doom Metal band from Germany.
 Formed in 2012 by K and black metal band Black Horizonz guitarist H, Ordeal & Plight began as a project experimenting on combining post-rock with black metal and doom metal elements. Joined by bass guitarist R, the band began recording their first demos in the Dunkelkammer Studios in Kamen, Germany, leading up to their self-titled debut record. Mixed and recorded at Fragment, Dortmund, in 2016, the album Ordeal & Plight was released on Chaosthrone Records on January 13th, 2017.

Three-piece post-rock/doom metal band Ordeal & Plight released their self-titled debut album on Chaosthrone Records. Almost 5 years in the making, the album explores contrasts: uplifting post-rock anthems ("Your Patience") arise from devastating swamps of doom ("Nine Years"), crisp melodies soar over heavy, gloomy chords. Coming from different musical backgrounds such as jazz, folk, or black metal, Ordeal & Plight's members experiment with each of them to create a sound that is both light and clean, heavy and dark, and takes listeners to muse over the boundaries and overlaps of memory and premonition ("Mnemosyne"/"Lethe"), and life and death.

Track List

  • Mnemosyne - 04:30 
  • Patron Of The Embalmer - 03:54 
  • This Trip Is Forever - 04:02 
  • Nine Years - 06:09 
  • Spectral Light - 02:10 
  • Your Patience - 03:54 
  • Lost Horns - 04:01 
  • Fangs And Debris - 03:41 
  • Crawl King - 04:02 
  • Lethe - 04:16

New album - Shades by Mindsedge

2016-10-25 04:50:33 UTC


Mindsedge has taken a different approach than on the first album "Theta".  They wanted this record to feel smooth and be much more positive, despite retaining the dramatic feel of the previous record. The songs feel tighter and more structured. Shades, the titular track is unique in a few ways. It is a redoing of the drummer's old song that he recorded along with the bassist in their old band. He wrote it himself but we wanted to put a new "Mindsedge" spin on it... so they made it sound nothing like a Mindsedge song. It's somewhat ambient and poppy at the same time (even if it's twice as long as your run-of-the-mill pop-song) and features vocals by Małgorzata Pawłowska (who you can also hear on Pathways) as well as keyboards by  jazz guitarist Piotr Grudzińsk. Another unique thing about the song is that it was recorded with instruments downtuned to 432Hz instead of 440Hz. It made them sound deeper, perhaps somewhat broken but also very warm.

Track List

Tesla - 02:59
Unmeisen - 04:03
Snowstorm - 06:07
Interlude - 00:44
Sunrise - 05:28
Pathways - 09:07 info
Shapeshifter - 04:17
Vipassana - 06:58
Shades - 06:58

Genre : rock, alternative, instrumental, metal, post-metal, post-rock, progressive

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
