Ocean Of Grief - Nightfall's Lament (Full-Length Album - 2018) - Bandcamp Stream


BIOGRAPHY
Ocean of Grief was founded in 2014 when bassist Giannis(ex-Typhon) and guitarist Filippos (ex-Typhon) decided to form a band musically close to the melodic doom/death metal genre. The keyboards and guitar duties were handled by Aris(Meden Agan, Memorain) and Panagiotis Kyriakou respectively, who also introduced Thomas to the band, as a drummer. 

The band's line up was completed with the arrival of Charalabos on vocals and then the bands 1st song, Drowned in Nostalgia, was recorded at Panagiotis' home studio as a demo. Following the song's upload, Panagiotis had to leave the band in order to move permanently to Australia so a new guitarist needed to be found as soon as possible. 

Luckily, Dimitra (ex-Final Words Of Sorrow) auditioned for the band, she became a regular member and the band started working on its first official release. EP's recordings started, eventually, at autumn of 2015 and the EP was finished at early 2016 when the russian lebel GS Productions agreed with the band to release the EP on February 2016.

Nightfall's Lament out on 26.1.2018 through Rain Without End Records.

Giant Gutter From Outer Space - Charred Memories (Full-Length Album - 2018) - Bandcamp Stream


The drums-and-bass duo Giant Gutter From Outer Space are back here to tell what's what with a 6-track ball of fire inspired by suppressed traumas of those affected by the authoritarianism and brutalities committed by the Brazilian State particularly in the 60's-80's.

Recorded in late 2017, the duo broaden their pioneering sound with bits from modular synthesizer territory, courtesy of Curitiba black metal artist Nahtaivel. "Charred Memories" is presented on Terranean Recordings with an exclusive battered mix and graphic design by Luke Lund.

“Charred Memories” is out, February 1st, on Brasilian net label Sinewave, UK based Harsh Noise Movement / HNM Records, MuteAnt Sounds net label (US), and Finnish label Terranean Recordings.

The reality is that the band is a very rare case, especially in the music scene of Curitiba, a band that managed to record so much work in so little time. In addition to the CD "Black Bile" in just five months, the group has released two EPs, "Set Adrift" and "Stumm", and has been able to national and internacional prominence with his music.

The Outsider - (2016 - 2017) [ Full Discography] - Bandcamp Stream

Foto de The Outsider.

"The Outsider" is the debut album that can be described as a 'cosmic horror', heavily inspired by horror literature, in the vein of HP Lovecraft, even though not all of the songs are directly linked to the writer; other songs (lyrically speaking) deal with the apocalyptic future that humanity will face and the human condition of madness and fear. Musically, this is thought to be very black music, symphonic, cinematic, with some other musical influences, but with a very clear line to follow: horror and darkness. Open-minded fans and listeners can expect a journey through what I call a clear message, stating that "humanity is worthless and will know its end briefly."

"This particular release is heavily influenced by bands such as Septicflesh, Behemoth, Rotting Christ, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Therion, Ihsahn, Opeth and Sigh from the beginning - the latter being the strongest influence, because of their creativity and not being afraid of experiment with various types of music. In the future, even when the music is black, I want to try more experiments, so any expression of art that shows creativity will be an inspiration."

One of the most important elements on the music by The Outsider is the orchestra, the orchestral arrangements made for all the songs in the album are meant to add drama and an overwhelming sensation of horror. Each song has different kinds of arrangements for the different sections of the orchestra, and even though human ear is not able to perceive each and every instrument or section clearly, it perceive them as a whole. "Orchestral Renditions from the Unknown" is the name given to the upcoming studio release by The Outsider and the songs are actually the ones from the debut album, but taking out the distorted electric guitars, bass, drums and almost all vocals in order to boost the orchestral music and make it sound in all its majestic nature playing all the original horrid and dark orchestral arrangements of the songs. But "Orchestral Renditions from the Unknow" is not an ordinary "orchestral version" album, it is also a creativity and versatility statement. Each song contains not only the orchestral parts, but other arrangements that belong to other music genres like flamenco, electronic music, twelve-tone serialism, scales and instruments from the middle and far east, as well as some experimentation with vocals, percussions and noise.

"I want to continue to create music, make it grow and reach other countries. In Mexico there is not much space for extreme metal, so I want to take my music to other places where this genre has a better chance of being heard.  The band is planning to physically launch Orchestral Renditions from the Unknown, "which is a complementary CD with orchestral songs and rearranged from the first album, and then maybe release material that was not used on the album. I am currently working on new songs for the second album. Making concerts is not on the brief plans. " - Commented the Band.

Iota and the Riffaheads - Insomnio (Official Music Video)



After four years of silence, and away from the madding crowd, Iota arrives with a new single: Insomnia. Iota leaves behind what was his previous presentation work  Metamorphoses, of more classical sounds,  to get into more personal darkest atmospheres, fruit of his own inner journey during the last 4 years. Insomnia, saw the light on December 4, 2017,  accompanied by the impressive video clip that Iota himself has been in charge of directing, producing and editing.

Let yourself go to a state of insomnia, anguished, dark, and almost insane. Palpable in its textures, in its taken care of atmospheres, images and texts. Sound features of Electronics, postulates from  a personal Rock vision. An inner world to which Iota extends his hand and that sure you will not leave indifferent.


  Released on December 2nd, 2017

Theme recorded and mixed in the Ibersonic studios (El Realengo) with Juan Pedro Navarro as sound engineer and mixer. Co-produced by Iota and Juan Pedro Navarro. Mastered by Martín Martín Ballesta in Last Punch Mastering (Glasgow) and Juan Pedro Navarro in Ibersonic (El Realengo).
