MISSHAPEN - TRANSCENDENCE (EP)

Misshapen - Transcendence Meningsløst

Independent, 08.02.19
Misshapen is a Canadian band, suffering from collective dissociative identity crisis. Or something.
The group plays a form of melodic, technical metal where the indications of lack of sense of direction gradually can not be ignored.
But I'm ahead of the schedular course of events. Let's first introduce the band.
Misshapen has been around since 2015, and has had a fairly steady lineup. Three of the quintets members are active in other constellations, where they reel off things like deathcore and brutal or melodic death metal.

EUCLIDEAN - QUOD ERAT FACIENDUM

Euclidean - Quod Erat Faciendum

Division Records, 09.02.19
As below, here's another quick message concerning re-released material:

Swiss Euclidean released their first album independently just before Yule 2017.

The long-lasting album consists of evocative atmospheric post-black, which works beyond expectation due to its suggestive, disillusioned and slightly ominous feeling of discouragement.

The work is now being re-released on double LP via Division Records, and the original review can be read out here: Quod Erat Faciendum

ENTHEOGEN - WITHOUT VEIL, NOR SELF

Entheogen - Without Veil, Nor Self

I, Voidhanger Records, 25.01.19

Here is a quick message from one of my faithful contributors:

In November 2017, Fallen Empire released the debut album of American Entheogen on vinyl and digital format.

This cacophonious and intensely disturbing work has recently been made available on CD by I, Voidhanger Records.

ONDFØDT - DÖDSRIKETS KALLELSE

Ondfødt - Dödsrikets kallelse Dice 5

Immortal Frost Productions, 25.01.19
Almost five years ago, Finnish Ondfødt album-debuted with the album Hexkonst, after first probing the market with an EP.

I had a taste for parts of the material, but all in all, the album became too wavering and incoherent for me to offer a wholehearted approval.

With Dödsrikets kallelse, Ondfødt have weeded out the beginners problems, and at this point appear as a much stronger entity.
