With all honesty, I really liked what you did here... A great usage of samples and overall killer atmosphere. The harsh vocals are really cool
(I was expecting something pathetic lol) and the cleans definitely not bad either. Keep up the good work!


Thanks, it means a lot to a starting artist like me, it really does. It's just my opinion, but I actually think three other tracks I have on my Dreadrealm youtube channel are better than this most recent one. "The Essence Of Winter", "Midwinter Feast At The Queen's Castle" (instrumentals) and "Norsemaiden's Lament", where I think my growls and cleans are both the best I've ever done are tracks I myself like more.

And thanks again, for listening and for the encouragement. You've more than earned a free signed copy

EDIT: A special thanks for the killer atmosphere comment. That one really made my day.

Hey, man! I remember listening to your Mornië Utulie project on Youtube quite some time ago and I am glad to say that (if I remember my feelings on that one correctly) it seems you've improved quite a lot in the songwriting department. I am really enjoying Zaglada, loving that the songs seem to have more aggressive momentum than MU had. I listened to Pale Rivers and Without End and then decided to purchase the whole album (I would have paid more, but I really am quite broke atm ). I am guessing that a lot of people would want slightly better production, but I love that raw sound and somewhat drowned-ish vocal mixing.

Overall I'd say keep focusing on Zaglada, You've really got something worthwhile going here, I'd rate what I've heard so far with a 7.5/10 easily and maybe higher once I listen to the full album. And anyone else, who is wondering whether to give this project a chance, I'd say take a listen. This really is good stuff

Best of luck with Your music!!!!

Hey Metren! Thank you very much for everything - it means a lot to me. To be honest - I never really know what to say, when someone saying something like this!

But anyway - thank you once again!

Here it is, it is finished. A full album released independently on Bandcamp and digitally only for now, but still. Dreadrealm's debut, my first ever actual achievement in the field of music. For the time being, the entire album is available as a free download and all 7 tracks are available for individual download as well. I hope people who discover this and are into the more atmospheric and ambient type of black metal can enjoy this album, I somewhat enjoyed creating it. I feel there is tons of room for improvement in the future, but I am still also slightly proud of having done this. A huge thank you to everyone, who checks it out and to everyone, who has given me feedback thus far. This album is dedicated to all of You.

Unfortunately, Bandcamp only allows for 200 free downloads per month for every artist, so I've been forced to set a minimum price of 1 € for the album, having reached that number of downloads (which is blowing my mind really) in just 40 h. As soon as I can (12th of May according to Bandcamp), I will again set the price to 0 for another 200 downloads.

Meanwhile, if anyone really wants to own the album (I've put it up on Youtube in its entirety as well), but can't afford the 1 €, just e-mail me and I will send you mp3s of all tracks, without ever revealing your request to anyone else.

Thanks everyone, who has purchased the album as well. You guys are all awesome!

Can't remember very well the Bandcamp options, but did you try putting a "Name your price" tag? I think this allows for infinite amount of downloads (and would be free for people that just "buy" for 0€) but you could still give a pay option for those that want to. Not sure of course, but worth checking out.

btw, congrats for all those downloads! Really impressive

Yeah, it was originally just "name your price", but since 200 people downloaded without paying, the option is now unavailable for the next 3-4 weeks, that's apparently how Bandcamp works. They want to make some money too, which is understandable and they are an excellent website, truly, the setup of the site is such that it is easy for people to find things they might like. If I want to give 300 more people the option to download without paying, I have to pay Bandcamp 9 USD. I am actually considering doing that since it seems that there are a lot of people, who seem to enjoy The Essence Of Winter.

Also, Thanks, man! I was hoping for 20-30 downloads in a week, not 200+ in 2 days, I am genuinely surprised and very grateful. Someone running a Youtube channel also wrote to me on FB, asking to upload my album in full (the channel has 1000 subs, so it might help) and an underground magazine wanted to include the title track on their CD for the May edition as well as offered to interview me, but they wanted 60 € for that kind of exposure, which I don't think I'd be willing to spend quite yet, as cool as it would be to have an interview in a bm magazine.

Yeah, I just checked the limit of 200 applies to all, be it "free download" or "name your price". Well, too bad.

And I see you have already been exposed to the dishonest means of certain magazines... I wouldn't give in, all that "pay us so we feature your band" crap is what made music magazines absolute shit (unless it is free/no-pretentions type like Metalstorm ).

It's an actual physical magazine that comes with CDs as well. Almost nobody reads those anymore. They have 2400 likes on FB, but meh... 60 goddamn euros, I won't take that offer I think. I'd rather make a joke Weird Al type interview with myself

EDIT: Plus, the name of the magazine is Fear Fucktory... so yeah...

Wow, congrats on having so many people download your album. Been following your music since you started posting here and you have come a long way. I'll be sure to send a few euros your way when I get the chance and I'm curious to hear the new tunes!
