Paysage D'Hiver are a phenomenon within the black metal genre. Wintherr, the Swiss project's sole and solitary member, has released ten albums and several splits within 20-plus years, all of which became underground successes and sought-after items while he kept mostly to himself, feeling no need to go public.
With 120 minutes playing time, "Im Wald" is not only Paysage D’Hiver's longest effort so far but also another chapter in the tale of winter travel (thus the French name Paysage D'Hiver) that runs through the project’s entire work like the proverbial golden thread.
2CD Digipak with 20-page booklet in black envelope
Originally released by Swedish Sludge monsters SUMA in 2010, "Ashes" is a beast of granitic riffs, sludge destruction and unrelentless heaviness, engine-eared, mixed and produced by Billy Anderson.
Highly anticipated new album by Dutch Stoner Rockers KOMATSU, feat NICK OLIVERI as special guest.

The former viking black metal act is once more conjuring up fascinating and progressive soundspheres - heavy and exciting!
'Success' is a funny concept. On its rawest, most pure form, it is entirely relative, and this was the subject KEN mode chose to approach their new album with.
Both sonically and lyrically, a shift has been made from the classic spitting of metallic hardcore tinged vitriol to a more raw indie aesthetic.
On 'Success' KEN mode pay tribute to where they've come from, saluting both their Canadian Prairie roots and a time when they first started to care about making music.
This was a time when the burgeoning grunge scene of the late 80's / early 90s, with bands like NIRVANA, BIG BLACK, COP SHOOT COP, THE COWS, CIRCUS LUPUS, and DRIVE LIKE JEHU were warping their teenage minds.
KEN MODE is ready for the next great step.
KEN MODE’s fifth full-length “Entrench” proudly preserves their acclaimed metallic Post-Hardcore severity, while offering their most creative and sonically diverse album at the same time – to which famed producer Matt Bayles (MASTODON, ISIS, BOTCH) added a massive punch. Formed in 1999, KEN MODE have shared stages with THE END, MASTODON, BURNT BY THE SUN, PELICAN, THE DREAM IS DEAD and GAZA among others.
This band is hot and clearly bound to be the next big thing!
The brand-new studio album of the mighty MARDUK
MARDUK, torch bearers of real Swedish black metal, never bowed down, never wimped out, never compromised … and they prevailed!
No other Swedish black metal band can look back at nearly three decades of spreading the gospel of death and the devil upon this world.
"Viktoria" is a statement. A call to arms. An outburst of fury. A real black metal album.
With its 30 minutes of lenght, the band’s new effort is a really solid and dynamic EP showing Seventh Genocide’s most metal side plunging into a tunnel of endless ambient, dark folk-oriented and post-rock-ish layers.
SVNTH gives a completely new birth to some of the band’s old material and offers new tunes as well, creating a stunning combination of melodic intertwinings, abrasive distortions and atmospherically brooding overtures.
First album ot the band after the post-black metal evolution.
Fast and massive riffs merge with soft and comtemplative acoustic and post rock passaged.
For fans of Alcest, Vallendusk, Agalloch and Deafheaven.
Debut mini-album from this Danish constellation. With former OBSKURE TORTURE members, EGG?ÉR sets out on a spectacular musickal journey, through the Causal cosmos - with an overt nihilistic outlook – straight into the pit… Nadir.
Significant sonic influences include VULPECULA, SPEAR OF LONGINUS, CATHEDRAL, WINTER, MOONBLOOD… and, needless to say, the masters of the void, BLACK SABBATH.
