DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT - FINISTERRE

Der Weg Einer Freiheit - Finisterre Dice 4

Season of Mist, 25.08.17
Der Weg Einer Freiheit is once again here with a new album. Where I missed out on the debut, the Germans impressed me with their second album, something I also wrote in connection with the third album Stellar, where I also mentioned that the expression had a more consistent and concentrated touch.
Some of the playfulness and unpredictable attics that caused Unstille - as the title suggested - to not stand still, were toned down, and a kind of post-metallic expressions burdened with gravity had snuck in.

NYCTOPHILIA - DWELLING IN THE FULLMOON LIGHT

Nyctophilia - Dwelling in the Fullmoon Light Dice 3

Independent, 06.06.17
Polish Nyctophilia is a one-man band crafted by Grief not fully three years ago, in December 2014. So far, 10(!) releases have been dropped. Half of which this very year. The last one being a split released about a month ago.
The band's black and atmospheric metal is based on the spiritual links to nature, death and the satanic spirit, whilst our man also linger over darkness and depression.
Dwelling in the Fullmoon Light takes the listener on a depressive journey in the mind's necrotic moods, and the voyage is made with primitive vessels.

BESTIAL SIGHT - WHEN YOU NEED METAL...GO TO HELL

Bestial Sight - When You Need Metal...Go To Hell Dice 4

Independent, 21.07.17
Not long ago, I stumbled across the Russian trio Bestial Sight, and their first release, When You Need Metal...Go To Hell. The band comes from Krasnodar in southwestern Russia, east of Crimea, between the Black Sea and The Caspian Sea, and plays black metal infused with elements from other forms of extreme metal.

The album, whose name ain't just confusingly similar to Hells Headbangers slogan, seemed tempting, while the cost of a digital copy was far from discouraging.
