Katatonia – Dethroned And Uncrowned

Posted in Review with tags , , , , , on 9th August 2013 by Nico Davidson

Katatonia
Dethroned And Uncrowned
Released 9th September
Ambient/Atmospheric
Released via Peaceville Records

Kings of the Swedish metal scene, Katatonia have been regarded by many as the forerunners of doom with last year seeing the release of the band’s ninth studio album Dead End Kings, which was praised throughout the metal community. A year on and Katatonia are ready to release a new and redefined version of their ninth album: Dethroned And Uncrowned.

The dreary vocal lines and misery-soaked pianos begin The Parting which is made by entrancing by the rainfall of acoustic guitars, gently easing their way through the song. The subtle orchestrated passages add to the strength of the emotion that flows throughout the track. The One You Are Looking For Is Not Here features a hypnotic vocal melody that glides with a certain mystique and elegance alongside the haunting pianos and tides of acoustic guitars. The piano sections in Hypnone are truly spine-chilling,  whereas as the guitars add an element of warmth to the song which is countered by the could vocals.

The Racing Heart is a slow, emotive song displaying the staunch use of vocals clearly, mixing them almost breathtakingly with the orchestrated sections and guitars. Buildings and Leech sail down similar routes, over subtle waves of misery and other emotion. The vocals on Ambitions sound colourless compared to the other tracks but this adds to the forlorn sound of the guitars and piano. The destitute soundings of Undo You show a change in the album whilst staying in the same vein of the album as well, something that is carried on by Lethean.

First Prayer sound eerily upbeat when played against the rest of the album but there is still that twang of despair that screams through the guitars and the album comes to its dreary finish with Dead Letters, which like the preceding track, is more upbeat in comparison to the other songs. The vocals prove to be at their most prominent on this final track, injecting new life into the album.

Dethroned And Uncrowned creates an atmospheric yet dark tranquillity, allowing for ambiance to create and set new moods and stir new emotions. It’s an interesting change in direction for Katatonia but one that have no difficulty with following and no that has breathed new life into their sound.

4/5

My Dying Bride – The Manuscript EP

Posted in Featured, Review with tags , , , , , , on 1st May 2013 by Nico Davidson

My Dying Bride
The Manuscript
Released 13th May 2013
Gothic/Doom Metal/Yorkshire Metal
Released via Peaceville Records

My Dying Bride are possibly the best thing to come out of Yorkshire since… Yorkshire puddings. Though unlike their savoury tasting kin, My Dying Bride have reigned on the British scene with a dark and foreboding career of soul crushing darkness and doom-laden music.

The Manuscript is a cascading sea of melodic riffs, tinted with the band’s Yorkshire-flavoured sound of forthcoming doom, transforming into a different flow of ghastly tones with each song. Aaron Stainthorpe’s vocals echo almost ethereally, lending a sound to the EP that is more haunting than a midnight walk through one of Whitby’s graveyards. The violin passages, as provided by Shaun MacGowan, are oddly entrancing and hypnotic, gently calling out like a gothic siren’s call whilst the bass, offered up by Lena Abe, and drums supply the ever bold backbone of the music, thundering down like a violent storm of hail.

The poetic introduction of Only Tears To Replace Her With rings out like church bells, conjuring up darkened visions of a romance gone wrong. The pace of the music helps to reinforce this image, as the vocals float coldly throughout the song. Var Gud Over Er sticks with the melodic passages of the EP but rushes in a heavier approach as well, complete with Aaron’s signature growls.

Painting a bleak picture with their music and lyrics, My Dying Bride have produced another beautifully tainted piece of musical craftsmanship, that will drag the listener down to the deepest depths of despair and agony whilst tantalising one’s natural audible devices at the same time.

5/5

Katatonia return with special triple vinyl release

Posted in Featured, News with tags , , , , , , , on 30th April 2013 by Nico Davidson

Katatonia are set to return with a special triple-LP vinyl release featuring an epic set of classics from the band’s catalogue. Last Fair Day Gone Night features the Swedish darkened metal masters at their glorious best with this electrifying set from London’s esteemed Koko venue during a series of special celebratory shows to mark the band’s 20th anniversary during 2011’s Last Fair Day Gone Night tour.

Released 17th June on Peaceville Records, Last Fair Day Gone Night is presented on triple heavyweight 180gm vinyl in a deluxe box, with a 12 page 12″ book. Founding members Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse are joined by long-time drummer Daniel Liljekvist along with recent members – namely guitarist Per Eriksson, plus recently recruited bassist Niklas Sandin – for an exhilarating night fuelled by a rich and extensive set of Katatonia tracks both past and present, including a special performance of the landmark 2001 album Last Fair Deal Gone Down in its entirety.

Katatonia was formed in Sweden in 1991. Their debut album, Dance of December Souls, was released in 1993, gaining the band recognition for their eclectic brand of gothic, doom and death metal. On future albums a newer, sleeker Katatonia sound came to the fore, starting with a streamlined and structured collection of melodic dark rock songs that became third album Discouraged Ones; the main evolution point for modern day Katatonia, where the band stand at the pinnacle of the dark and progressive metal genre.

Pre-order at this location.

Autopsy set to return from the grave after 15 year hiatus, new album released in June

Posted in Featured, News with tags , , , , , , , on 19th April 2013 by Nico Davidson

June 24th (unless you’re over in the States, then it will be July 2nd US) marks the return of Autopsy, the US masters of brutality, with their sixth studio opus of horror and all-out madness, titled The Headless Ritual, on Peaceville Records. Featuring the returning quartet of Chris Reifert, Eric Cutler, Danny Coralles, and Joe Trevisano, The Headless Ritual is a relentless monster of violent and brutal death metal mastery delivered in the unmistakable Autopsy style of chaotic riffing, insane solos and doom-filled interludes, all served with the band’s unhinged brand of vocal sickness. The album was recorded and mixed April 2013 at Fantasy Studios in California with Adam Munoz, and features cover artwork by renowned artist Joe Petagno (Motörhead, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin). As the band comments:

Expect nothing less than the monstrous brutality that Autopsy has been known to offer. Laurels will not be rested upon, trends will not be followed and mercy will not be shown. Mark your calendars for June and pick out a coffin to lie down and die in. Darkness and death await…

The tracklisting for The Headless Ritual is as follows:

01. SLAUGHTER AT BEAST HOUSE
02. MANGLED FAR BELOW
03. SHE IS A FUNERAL
04. COFFIN CRAWLERS
05. WHEN HAMMER MEETS BONE
06. THORNS AND ASHES
07. ARCH CADAVER
08. FLESH TURNS TO DUST
09. RUNNING FROM THE GOATHEAD
10. THE HEADLESS RITUAL

Among the early breed of US death metal pioneers, Autopsy formed in 1987 in the San Francisco bay area and released four albums on Peaceville Records. Beginning with the classic debut Severed Survival in 1989, they disbanded in 1995 with members going on to form Abscess. Autopsy triumphantly and officially returned from the grave after a 15 year hiatus with the 2010 EP, The Tomb Within, followed by the release of the band’s widely acclaimed fifth studio album, Macabre Eternal in 2011.

My Dying Bride set to release new EP entitled The Manuscript

Posted in Featured, News with tags , , , , , , on 28th March 2013 by Nico Davidson

Yorkshire’s very own lords of unending doom, My Dying Bride, have been imposing their legacy for over two decades, since their debut album As the Flower Withers surfaced in 1992 and took hold of the doom scene with the band’s unique brand of ice-cold doom. Now the Yorkshire titans return with their latest work, The Manuscript, set for release on Peaceville Records on May 13th on both CD and vinyl.

The Manuscript will contain four new and exclusive songs; taking you on a dark voyage spanning over 27 minutes of supreme doom in the unmistakable My Dying Bride style of heaviness mixed with dark tales of foreboding. The EP was recorded and mixed at Futureworks Studios in Manchester, UK with the band’s long-time producer, Mags.

As the band comments: “The Manuscript features four monstrous tracks of brilliantly crafted metal that only My Dying Bride can do, with swathes of doom laden melancholy, harmonic beauty and thundering death metal all combined in their trademark sound. Four tales of tragedy, loss and bitter vengeance greet the listener with an added assault on the emotions too, leaving the soul grey and limp. There is beauty here, but it’s carrying a dark blade. 2012 saw the release of undoubtedly one the band’s finest, & most epic works of late, ‘A Map of All Our Failures‘; capturing the imaginations of metal fans & doom lovers alike with their foreboding journeys through love & death, religion & folklore.” The album artwork for The Manuscript can be seen below.

The band will also be embarking on a short South American tour next month. The dates are as follows:

10th April 2013 – Rival Petrobras, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
12th April 2013 – Teatro Flores, Buenos Aires, Argentina
14th April 2013 – The Metal Fest Chile, Movistar Arena, Santiago, Chile

The Manticore and Other Horrors tracklisting unveiled

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 12th September 2012 by Nico Davidson

Cradle of Filth have revealed the track list for the band’s upcoming 10th studio album, The Manticore and Other Horrors, due out October 29th (Europe) via Peaceville Records and October 30th (North America) via Nuclear Blast Records.

1. The Unveiling of O
2. The Abhorrent
3. For Your Vulgar Delectation
4. Illicitus
5. Manticore
6. Frost On Her Pillow
7. Huge Onyx Wings Behind Despair
8. Pallid Reflection
9. Siding With The Titans
10. Succumb To This
11. Nightmares Of An Ether Drinker
12. Death, The Great Adventure *Deluxe Edition Digipak
13. Sinfonia *Deluxe Edition Digipak

Recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone studios (where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins), Suffolk, the album is a testament to the longevity of The ‘Filth, as not only does it reek of Cradle’s (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but this thoroughly modern album places the band firmly in fresh killing fields anew.

The Manticore and Other Horrors itself possesses an altogether new atmosphere for the band, incorporating a heavier, faster NWOBBM punk vibe that is both current and cruel, blended with ornate orchestration and the quirky immediateness of 2000’s Midian opus.

The album’s title can be likened to a bestiary, a collection of stories on monsters –  personal demons, Chimeras, literary fiends and world-enslaving entities to blame but a few.

Artwork for the impending release comes courtesy of Matthew Vickerstaff of Darkwaveart.

Commented the band’s infamous front man, Dani Filth, “This is our 10th commandment in metal. We have diversified and kept alive the spirit of this band and breathed it into something that I can proudly say, slays like an absolute motherf**ker. The Manticore is coming… Long live the filth!

Cradle of Filth announce European tour dates

Posted in News with tags , , , , on 5th September 2012 by Nico Davidson

UK extreme metallers Cradle of Filth have just announced a mammoth run of dates across Europe, including a one-off UK show at London’s Forum on 19th December. Happy Christmas! The band’s ringleader Dani Filth of the forthcoming touring event commented: “We are obviously enraptured at the prospect of ditching our Manatee suits and sweating it our night after night on tour across Europe. We have seemingly morphed into an American band of late, having toured there quite extensively, so it’s going to be awesome playing some of the places on our home continent we haven’t visited in a while. It’ll bring some much needed culture back to our humble frames. On the live front we have some great new ideas for our show, a new setlist, a new bassist and a new album, so expect, with the addition of Godseed and Rotting Christ, the tour to be a tentacular Dracula spectacular of rare and dizzying heights. Europe beware! The Manticore is coming! Long live the ‘Filth!

Cradle of Filth are set to release their new masterwork The Manticore & other Horrors this Hallowe’en on Peaceville Records.

The title of this, Cradle Of Filth’s tenth studio full-length, can be likened to a bestiary, a collection of stories on Monsters; personal demons, Chimeras, literary fiends and world-enslaving entities to blame but a few, Manticore being the ravening title track. It is a song about a beautiful mythological horror that comes to be feared as the disfigurehead of foreign occupation in the Indian provinces.

The songs Illicitus and Pallid Reflection bare the sweet ingredients of vampirism and lycanthropy; the wicked For Your Vulgar Delectation and Frost On her Pillow are woven perversely into grim fairytales, whilst classic, monumental tracks like The Abhorrent and Siding With The Titans both extol tentacular Lovecraftian values.

The album itself possesses an altogether new atmosphere for the band, incorporating a heavier, faster NWOBBM punk vibe that is both current and cruel, blended with ornate orchestration and the quirky immediateness of 2000’s Midian opus.

Recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone studios (where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins), Suffolk, the album is testament to the longevity of The ‘Filth, as not only does it reek of Cradle’s (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but this thoroughly modern album places the band firmly in fresh killing fields anew.

Vocalist Dani Filth had this to say on the new album: ‘This is our tenth commandment in metal. We have diversified and kept alive the spirit of this band and breathed it into something that I can proudly say, slays like an absolute motherf**ker. The Manticore is coming… Long live the filth!

Cradle of Filth is also set to spread their darkness upon European lands with a tour throughout November & December.

Damnation sponsored by Peaceville Records

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 24th July 2012 by Nico Davidson

Peaceville Records is proud to announce that, to coincide with celebrating 25 years of the label’s existence, we will be joining forces with Yorkshire’s own Damnation festival, as sponsoring partners. Damnation Festival, based in Leeds, UK, has brought a high-caliber of extreme metal’s finest & most diverse acts from around the globe to the north of England since launching in 2005.

Representing Peaceville on the night will be local doom heroes and heroine My Dying Bride – themselves a long-standing act on the label over a 20 year period of metallic tyranny – as the band return to the stage in support of their upcoming album due on Peaceville.

Since its inception in 1987, Peaceville Records has brought consistent quality & evolution to the metal universe, from early crust punk releases, to the death metal of Autopsy & At the Gates, through the black metal of Darkthrone, to being a leader of the gothic doom movement with the ‘Peaceville 3’; namely Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride & Anathema – all cementing the label’s legendary reputation as the home of doom. Later years saw numerous internationally renowned acts such as Katatonia & Opeth brought to the fold, & more recently the UK’s own Cradle of Filth.

“Damnation Festival are thrilled to be partnering up with Peaceville Records for the 2012 edition of the festival. It’s a killer label with an amazing history and we wish them a very happy birthday. Damnation fans will benefit from this fantastic partnership in the form of a free CD sampler featuring some of the best Peaceville tracks from the past two and half decades. There will be 2000 samplers on offer, so don’t forget to collect one alongside the complimentary programme courtesy of Terrorizer magazine. Here’s to the next 25!”

Katatonia announce new album

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 28th May 2012 by Nico Davidson

Katatonia, the Swedish purveyors of dark metal, have announced thatKatatonia 'Dead End Kings' front cover - high res their ninth studio album, due August 27th (August 28th North America) on Peaceville Records, will be entitled Dead End Kings. A continuation of 2009’s inspired and acclaimed Night is the New Day, as well as a leap forward into the unknown, Dead End Kings sees the quintet conjure yet another milestone in audial melancholy & angst.

Amongst their most poignant and ambitious material to date, Dead End Kings was recorded at Ghost Ward Studios and The City Of Glass. The album was produced by Anders Nyström & Jonas Renkse themselves, and mixed by David Castillo, known for his prior work with the band, as well as Opeth & Bloodbath.

Dead End Kings sees the recording debut of guitarist Per Eriksson for Katatonia, as well as recent bassist Niklas Sandin. Additionally, Katatonia is joined once again by Frank Default & his invaluable expertise on sampling & atmospherics, plus a special guest appearance by Norwegian vocalist Silje Wergeland of Dutch legends The Gathering/ex-Octavia Sperati.

Jonas (vocals) comments on the album title: Dead End Kings is about the corridors of our mind from where there is no return. Be a king or queen in your own right in these hallways, even at the dead end. Carry your burden with pride. That’s what we are doing, twenty years and counting. Kings, because we believe in what we are creating, in our own disturbing faith.

Anders (Guitars) also commented: This album has doors revolving into many different genres of music but remain disguised within the Katatonia trademark. We have walked the fine line between attempting not to repeat ourselves but also not to distance us away from what people know and love. We’re now ready to hand over the evidence and whatever the direction this has taken is now for you to decide. We’re confident the creativity and passion on this album is something that will be echoing even beyond the dead end.

Artwork is once more supplied by long-time visual collaborator Travis Smith.

My Dying Bride have just entered the studio to commence the recording of the follow-up to 2009’s epic For Lies I Sire, with the album currently scheduled for an Autumn 2012 release on Peaceville Records.

With the tracks to be laid down at Futureworks Studios, Manchester with long-time production partner Mags, the new album will feature more punishing doom from the legendary Yorkshire metallers. My Dying Bride have been deep into the writing process since last year when they marked 20 years of existence with the special orchestral Evinta release, plus the dose of supreme doom metal that was The Barghest O’ Whitby; a single 27 minute track exploring the dark and immensely heavy side of the band, ranking among their heaviest and most ferocious material ever written, as well as being the first studio recording to feature new keyboard/violin player Shawn McGowan.

Mysticum Sign To Peaceville

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 19th March 2012 by Nico Davidson

Peaceville Records have proudly announced the signing of cult Norwegian band Mysticum, which will result in the release of the long-rumoured second studio album, Planet Satan, a record almost 15 years in the making. Unifying the core trio of Herr General Cerastes, Svartravn and Mean Malmberg, Mysticum will commence work on the new album shortly.

One of the pioneering industrial black metal forces to emerge in the early 90’s, Mysticum brought to the world a completely unique brand of psychedelic discordant black metal with insane drum machine patterns and synths. They were originally signed to Euronymous‘ Deathlike Silence Productions label, such was his belief in the band. However, this venture proved to be cut short following his murder, forcing Mysticum to look elsewhere for the release of their eventual debut album, In the Streams of Inferno.

Mysticum‘s past releases, consisting of 1996’s In the Streams of Inferno and the collection of the band’s other works, Lost Masters of the Universe, will both be re-released by Peaceville with new artwork and with a remastered sound, along with bonus material. Release dates for these titles, plus Planet Satan will be announced in time.

The band stated: Mysticum is back! A few months ago we decided to gather forces again, and finally start the making of the cursed album Planet Satan. After considering several offers and going through negotiations, we decided to sign with Peaceville Records in order to have a proper record label to back us up. Peaceville will handle our complete discography and also make our old material available. So along with “Planet Satan” you can expect re-releases of “In the Streams of Inferno” and “Lost Masters of the Universe“. Stay tuned for more folks!

Barren Earth – THE RAIN BEGINS Video Now Online

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 2nd March 2012 by Nico Davidson

‘The Rains Begin’, the debut video from Barren Earth‘s new masterwork, ‘The Devil’s Resolve‘, is now finally complete. The video was directed by Ville Rissanen at Obscure Entertainment, who has also previously worked with fellow countrymen, Insomnium.

Mixed by Dan Swanö (Opeth/Katatonia) at Unisound, ‘The Devil’s Resolve’ continues with all the trademarks one has come to associate with Barren Earth: brutal riffs, gloomy growls, majestic melodies, as well as acoustic and progressive passages. But this time the band has delved even deeper, and takes their music to the extremes. What was brutal on the first release is now tripled and what was proggy is also tripled.

Audio & video clips, including a new video interview with bassist Olli Pekka-Laine can be found here.

The Devil’s Resolve’ is to be released March 12th on Peaceville Records on CD & vinyl.
