Triosphere - The Heart Of The Matter

Timeless, yearning, nostalgic, and burning like a fire on the shoreline's edge that doesn't quit no matter how hard the waves crash, Triosphere's third full-length is so solid I am unable to choose my favorite songs, and instead am left just saying "all of them."

Cavalera Conspiracy - Pandemonium

The ever industrious Max Cavalera is back with his Cavalera Conspiracy project that includes his brother, Igor. With a release schedule that sees him releasing one album every year either with Cavalera Conspiracy or Soulfly, one instantly wonders whether Pandemonium will be a good album. After all, quantity does not necessarily imply quality. Indeed, the last few albums have seen a mixed response from the fan base and critics alike, which overall seems to indicate overall quality is at least inconsistent.

Bands
Savn

Norwegian goth metal legends The Sins Of Thy Beloved have been dormant since 2000 - following the release of their second album Perpetual Desolation - and after years of a rumored reunion, Stig Johansen and Anders Thue have instead risen from the ashes with a new band, Savn , and a new vision.

The seeds for Savn (translated: Deprivation) officially took root when multi-instrumentalist Stig contacted Midnattsol vocalist and long-time friend Carmen Elise Espenæs about singing one song for the planned Savn album. Carmen agreed, and Stig and Anders (keyboards) were so pleased with the final result they invited her to sing on the entire record. With Midnattsol rendered inactive for the time being due to personal commitments within the band, and her new role as a singer, as well as a mother of an adorable daughter, the Norwegian powerhouse found herself with enough time and refueled with energy to take part in this new musical journey.

Bands
Eudaimony

Eudaimony was formed in July 2007 by Matthias Jell (vocals/ex-Dark Fortress) and Marcus E. Norman (guitars/Naglfar, Bewitched, Havayoth, Ancient Wisdom). The idea behind Eudaimony was from the beginning on to create music, which reflects the band members' view on every-day life in this society: sick, disturbing and negative.

In September 2007 Jell and Norman met in Umeå, Sweden, composing the first material for Eudaimony . Short time later Jörg Heemann (drums/Secrets of the Moon, Ex-The Vision Bleak) joined the band and in the middle of 2008 the line-up got completed by Peter Honsalek (viola & piano/Ex-Nachtreich).

Bands
Schammasch

Located in Basel, Switzerland, Schammasch was formed in 2009.'Schammasch' being Šamaš, the sun god from Akkadian / Babylonian mythology.)

With little attention to the question of genre from their inception, the band regarded their actual body of work as what is most artistically significant; although their roots can be found in forward-thinking black metal whilst balancing a razor sharp hybrid of dark atmospherics, doom and Hermetic mysticism.

After a year of carefully crafting their art, Schammasch released their first album Sic Lvceat Lvx on an underground Swiss Black Metal label and unveiled their live show alongside international extreme metal acts like Jex Thoth, Temple of Baal, Vorkreist, Evoken and Forgotten Tomb. Their ambitious debut garnered considerable praise from many corners of the extreme music world, in print and online. Legacy magazine in Germany quoted : „On a work of art like this one, there's only one recommendation: goeth and buyeth and you shall not regret it! 14/15"

Faethom

The grim story of Blackened Heavy Metal band Faethom begins in early 2009 in hellish Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Co-founders David Diacrono and Mariela Muerte, both originally from the ghoul-infested town of Cochabamba, Bolivia, joined their dark talents to mix that which they most worship: Horror and Metal. Initially, and for a very short period, the band was known as Fathom, but David and Mariela decided to change the name to FAETHOM (old English spelling of the word) to stand out from other bands with the same name. Terror tales written by Mariela became songs and throughout most of 2009 the band focused on recording their first EP. Also during 2009, they added to the lineup Argentinian bassist, Federico Vidal, and drummer, Thomas Wittig, for the live experience and they began playing shows locally.
