AMNUTSEBA - DEMO

Amnutseba - Demo Very Good

Caligari Records, 21.04.17
From the catacombs in Paris, a new repulsive entity comes crawling. It may not be the catacombs the abomination is worming out from, but the sewer, for it smells foul and rotten.
According to sources in the health department, there is reason to believe that Amnutseba isn't alone on this mutation. These, judging by the music, dysfunctional deformities, have some symptomatic similarities with acts from other continents, such as Portal and Imperial Triumphant, but greater similarities with local victims to leprosy.

FREIHEIT - БЕЗУМИЕ. НЕНАВИСТЬ. СМЕРТЬ.

Freiheit - Безумие. Ненависть. Смерть. Middling

GrimmDistribution, 05.05.17
Despite a German band name, meaning Freedom (although I trust many of you would need no translation), the album's title hardly leaves any doubt about origin.

Freiheit comes from Arkhangelsk in Russia, and Безумие. Ненависть. Смерть. means something in line with Madness. Hatred. Death.

The young Quartet delivered their first EP a year ago, and now the band's first album follows. On the menu we find fierce and rowdy, yet controlled black/death.

HORIZON OF THE MUTE - TRANSMUTATION PROCESS (EP)

Horizon of the Mute - Transmutation Process Good

Independent, 08.05.17
Not much more than a year ago, I presented the first EP from Finnish Horizon of the Mute, and six months ago the first full length came along. The band doesn't need a presentation beyond what I've already given in connection with Horizon of the Mute and Trobar Clus.

Jani Koskela is back with his dark, leaden, slow and resounding one-man band. This time with two cover songs, if at all that's the right term to use. These are namely songs Jani have previously recorded with two of his former bands.
