Post Metal band from Ukraine.
Oakland, California-based progressive doom metal sextet SECRETS OF THE SKY projects a unique brand of cinematic, cerebral, atmospheric metal with a heavy persuasion towards doom metal and even more blackened influences citing The Ocean, Opeth, Isis, Agalloch and others. The debut album from this new but skilled act, ‘To Sail Black Waters’, is a modern and unique mix of elements from a multitude of genres. With up to three guitar tracks, two and three keyboards at a time and a multitude of vocal styles — clean and epic lines against hollow and blackened battle cries and crushing, low-end growls — the band creates huge buildups and epic movements as expansive as the cosmos.
Filthy Sludge Metal from Perugia, Italy.
FFOO: Eyehategod, Buzzov-en

Arising from the cold depths of the Basque Seas emerges KEZIAH; an omnipotent creature with sludge coursing through its veins.
This unrelenting beast channels the swaying, down-tuned riffs and hypnotic, swirling drumming patterns synonymous with the tormented aspects of sludge/post-metal with their latest, aptly titled, release 'The Unknown'.
In just under 40 minutes, images of the world being swallowed in cold, empty oceans will play out as the soundtrack perpetrates your consciousness with molasses-thick progressions and harrowing vocal delivery that'll shake the most sturdy of souls. Nods to Mouth Of The Architect and Cult Of Luna are present whilst retaining originality.
The french duo comes back with a new album, Modern Rituals, plunging deeper into the urban blend of noise and sludge already settled on their previous release, Ville Morgue.
This new record expresses all their skepticism and unease towards a society where sarcasm and mediocrity became criterias of appreciation if not values to be defended at all cost. A society that constantly and repeatedly broadcasts its own decay, drowning masses in a sea of ignorance and ready-made reflections.
Modern Rituals marks on a new step in Carne’s methodical research of more darkness, loudness and sombre psychedelism.
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.
"Wild ride fo heavy riffs. Punk Rock infused carnage with a dash of Rock and Roll"

Zolfo - Delusion Of Negation
6-panel Digipak CD
Italy’s underworld is a somewhat fervent environment lately and the Apulian Sludge/Doom-mongers Zolfo has rightfully earned a place in such realm.
Their debut work ‘Delusion Of Negation’ evokes a smoking creature that will utterly please fans of Iron Monkey, Ufomammut and Bongzilla alike.
Huge riffs and loud amps proceed hand in hand with the slow-paced yet unmerciful drumming while the vocal delivery is harsh as hell, non-human at times.
Recorded and mixed at Molotov Recording (Bari, Italy) by Andrea Lenoci
Mastered at Skyhammer Studio (UK) by Chris Fielding
