Ocean of Grief - Eyes of Oblivion (official track)


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.

On December 23rd, 2017 the band released the second single from their new album entitled "Eyes of Oblivion", brought to life by the amazing Haris Kountouris of the HK Visual Creations

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

Hitwood Announces New EP + New Single Released



Foto de Hitwood.



First Chapter of the new EP "Marea" that will be released track-by-track in the first half of 2018. Antonio Boccellari and Laurhell join forces to write a Melodic Death Metal track that doesn't follow the trends of the last years and will touch you with deep lyrics about an apocalyptic scenario predicted by the Hitwood dreams.

The EP will be released song-by-song, in a slowly way, as every one of the tracks will represent an important chapter of the concept, so really soon you could finally hear the first step towards apocalypse with the collaboration of the vocalist LaurHell.


The cover of the EP #marea, it was realized by Maria Jose of Emejota Illustrations (https://www.instagram.com/eme.jota.g/). It was really simple to work with her, I explained her my idea and she illustrate the scenery as I have seen in my dreams, an apocalyptic scenario where the sun fall into the sea. Yeah, the sun is really small here in the picture, but this is the vision I've seen in the dream....I really like the combination of colors, I have post-edited that to get more vibrancy to the artwork; the thing I like the most are the way Maria have designed the waves...check out her works! -  Commented Hitwood

Somnent - Sojourn (Full-Length Album - 2017) - Bandcamp Stream

BIOGRAPHY
Somnent is a solo melodic doom/death project by Giovanni A. Vigliotti in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Musical themes include personal struggle, death, nature, and the meaning of life and consciousness. While inspiration comes from an array of sources both musical and non-musical. The debut EP titled “Eventide” was mixed, mastered, and produced by Giovanni A. Vigliotti at Diagnostic Studios during the summer of 2015. Originally the album was released as a digital album on June 26, 2015 but after a positive response, was released on Russian label GS Productions in February 2016 as a limited edition digipack.

Sojourn, Somnent's first full-length release, is a concept album which revolves around a man's acceptance of death and his brief yet painful existence on Earth. And like nature itself, he has no choice but to accept the inevitable end. He comes to his own conclusion that life is nothing but a painful lie and death is the only truth that he must accept in order to find peace.

Sojourn was mixed, mastered, and produced by Giovanni A. Vigliotti at Diagnostic Studios between July 2016 to October 2017.

Mistralth - My Grief (Full-Length Album - 2017) - Youtube Stream


After a substantial gap of 16 years, Finland's Mistralth return with their second album, the follow up to 2001's independently released 'Diary of Despair'. Having enjoyed a lengthy hiatus, the group reformed with a new line-up and began demoing new tracks in 2015. And so, in September 2017 Mistralth's sophomore effort was finally unleashed. Fortunately, it's apparent very quickly that this second coming has produced an outstanding new album.

Mistralth is 1998 formed Dark Metal band from Finland. This is the second album from the band following “Diary of Despair” released in 2001. The sound and style is described as simple, rough, Old School style dark metal. Sometimes melodic, atmospheric and almost optimistic, at other times more misanthropic sounding.

The recordings took place between the spring of 2016 and summer 2017. An album by the name "My Grief" that includes 7 songs was born. A lyric video of the opening track "No Tomorrow" has been released the beginning of September 2017. The full album will be released by the end of September 2017.
