Vulture Industries - The Malefactor's Bloody Register Pool Of Blood Vinyl Edition
Vulture Industries
The Malefactor's Bloody Register Pool Of Blood Vinyl Edition
LP | 2021 | EU | Original (Dark Essence)
29,99 €*
Release:2021 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Preorder available from 05.03.2021
To celebrate the 11th anniversary of the 2nd album from Vulture Industries, “The Malefactor’s Bloody Register” has now gotten a makeover and will for the first time be available on vinyl. Re-mixed, de-mixed, remastered and unmastered, this release has been in the making for some time. Intent on an impeccable vinyl presentation, the band originally set out to re-mix the album. But good intentions turned to shit as the new master sounded worse than the original. So, two steps back, press reset, the original master was tweaked for vinyl and we are mighty pleased with the result. Originally released in 2010, “The Malefactor’s Bloody Register” was released to critical acclaim and took the band to big festivals such as Hellfest Open Air and Metal Days. With the band growing in size, and the latest single, “Deeper”, reaching half a million streams, we know the fans are hungry for something new. And this is the only Vulture Industries album that hasn’t been out on vinyl yet. So, while we wait for something completely different and new from the band, we can enjoy a trip down memory lane with “The Malefactor’s Bloody Register”. “The Malfactor’s Bloody Register” was originally recorded at Conclave & Earshot Studios with Bjørnar Nilsen, and was mastered by Brian Gardner (Isis, NIN, David Bowie). The album also features a guest performance by Herbrand Larsen (ex-Enslaved) on hammond organ, and performers on cello, viola and saxophone.

26,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
From the depth of Reykjavik in Iceland emerges NYRST with its blackened creation "ORSÖK", an album that pays homage to the band's grim and icy Icelandic heritage. With "ORSÖK", NYRST, which means "northernmost" in Icelandic, holds true to its name by delivering a debut album filled with a soundscape that is incredibly cold, stark and barren, whilst the lyrics come straight from old horror literature and are laced with cosmic undertones.

Descend To Purity
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Dark Essence)
26,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
With a sound that feels as if it emerged not just from Oslo, but from the depths of one of the city's burial crypts, Acârash presents their latest dark creation "Descend to Purity" -­ an album that embraces the true Norwegian tradition, whilst managing to forge a sound that blends Hard Rock together with Black Metal. It is a sound in which esoteric poetry and ritualistic contemplation are central to the music, and mirror the nuances in both sound and musical contrasts. Formed in Oslo in the fall of 2016, and founded on the pillars of the 80s and 90s avant-­garde rockers The Void, Acârash is an occult hard rock band that embraces tradition, yet manages to forge a sound all of its own, with its blend of hard rock, metal and black metal.. Acârash's lineup of of Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals, manage to reinvent, whilst at the same time preserve, in order to deliver a record that explores and develops the boundaries of rock and metal, and naturally alternates between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive doom. "Descend to Purity", was recorded, mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem at the Caliban Studios in Oslo, to produce a sound that fits the sharp delivery and the crispness of the music to perfection.
Dwaal - Gospel Of The Vile
Dwaal
Gospel Of The Vile
2LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Dark Essence)
28,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
When you’re stuck in quicksand, movement is severely restricted by the oppressive sludge. Every effort to escape makes you more stuck. The occasional pocket of air might support you for a short while, giving you the illusion of hope, only to collapse under your weight. In the end there's no way to avoid being smothered, consumed by the dirt. Dwaal’s proverbial quicksand is a dense, hypnotic wall of sound. Their atmospheric blend of sludge, doom and post-metal is at the same time bone-crushingly heavy and depressingly melancholic. Gloomy riffs, epic atmospheres, despairing vocals one minute and minimalistic, lo-fi melodies the next. Gospel of the Vile is the first full length album from this six-headed monster from Oslo, Norway, following their self-released EP Darben (2017). The music is definitely rooted in Doom Metal, bearing also clear inspiration from Post-rock, traditional Metal and the ambience of Black Metal – Resulting in a massive sound, with moments of both brutality and beauty. The concept of the album is depicting humanity’s embracing of its inner darkness and the decline into a more primal state, with songs like “Gospel of the Vile” and “Obsidian Heart Burns” at the center of the lyrical universe. Gospel of the Vile is an album that challenges you to endure its every movement.
T.O.M.B. - Thin The Veil
T.O.M.B.
Thin The Veil
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Dark Essence)
24,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Over the twenty plus years of their existence T.O.M.B have skilfully crafted their own avant-­garde style, which is characterised by an eclectic mix of Ambient, Doom, Industrial, Noise and traditional Black Metal. It is a style that has earned the band a well-­deserved place as one of the top innovators of modern day Black Metal. "Thin The Veil" rises menacingly from the underworld, in a flurry of storm-­laden blast beats, persuasive death riffs, ritual chants, superb void-­like vocals mixed with pure necrotic black metal harshness. It is a one of a kind album worthy of the angel of death himself. "Thin The Veil" features Mayhem's Hellhammer on drums, alongside collaborations with musicians such as Craig Smilowski (Ex-­ Immolation), Andy Winter of Winds, Duncan McLaren of Venom Wolf, and with spoken necromancy spells recited by Maurice De Jong ("Mories" of Gnaw Their Tongues). All in all fans can expect "T.O.M.B's unique harsh atmospheric death-­industrial style to be combined with a relentless, fierce and primitive form of musicianship reminiscent of the old glory days of 2nd Wave Black Metal.

“Mercury” is the classic debut album from Madder Mortem, originally released in 1999.

In addition to the remastered album, the CD (also included in the vinyl package) includes 3 newly re-recorded songs from Mercury: He Who Longed For The Stars, The Grinding Silence & Remnants - as well as two brand new songs, based on riffs from the Mercury era. The bonus material was produced by BP M. Kirkevaag & Madder Mortem, and mastered by Peter In de Betou at Tailor Maid.
Darkend - Spiritual Resonance
Darkend
Spiritual Resonance
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Dark Essence)
24,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Darkend is Extreme Ritual Art: arcane symphonies exalting ancient ceremonial chants lost in nocturnal remembrances, sulphur riffs engraved on black metal patterns and progressive freedom. At the border between magic and spirituality, where cults and rituals can wander free in the wisdom of infinity, at the crossroads between life and death. Swallowed by the energy of the ceremony, engulfed by the dense smoke of incense, for DARKEND there’s no difference between good and evil, dream and reality.
