Oro — Djupets Kall
The cries of the lost and alone, the suffocating darkness, the crippling fear and the great brilliance of that hidden world below... all these things, these beautiful, terrifying things have been captured in the music of ORO, and their debut album, Djupets Kall. ORO was born beneath the Kilsbergen mountains, in the shadows of the deep forests in 2014 and in the brief years of their existence they have created a sound like no other. A towering, crushing force is mixed with intense intimacy and the fact that the band choose to sing in their own language, allowing them to speak purely from the heart, only adds to the grim beauty of these stunningly powerful songs.
ORO means anxiety and unrest and those feelings run through this album like a black stream, but between the towering riffs of agonized doom and overwhelming sludge there are passages of sublime beauty. Within songs like the mountainous ‘Järtecken’ whole worlds of complex emotion open up before you. There will be hundreds of albums released in 2019, but very few of them will possess the power, the emotional intensity, the ability to capture and consume the listener of Djupets Kall. Albums like this are why heavy music continues to thrill and touch the hearts of those who need more than just bland entertainment. So be ready for March 1st, when Endless Winter will release the majesty of Djupets Kall, because ORO will take you to dark places, unravel your nerves and expose your pain — and nothing could be more rewarding.

Omination — Followers of the Apocalypse
The double debut album of Omination will leave on October 10. Due to an album release his only author Fedor Kovalevsky has made the following statement:
— The overall thinking and art direction for Omination is based on the fact that even though everything in this world are cycles, there is always in my humble opinion a cycle of “creation” and “destruction”, therefore, in the human perception we are all aware of beginnings and ends.
— Omination is about what is coming after any end: a new beginning. It’s omens of the harsh future that awaits everyone whose closing a cycle to enter in a new one. For instance, the death of a close one. This is why I use the “post-apocalypse” term and a post apocalyptic imagery/atmosphere in my writings and so forth. Starting the new beginning is harsh.
— Followers of the Apocalypse is an image, an image of people who believe that the apocalypse in every way is a solution to start a new and clean cycle. Globally in this album I'm criticizing the fact that today, our society/civilizations are doing nothing good and therefore it should be wiped out, but behind these words, I speak about my own personal experience I lived after the loss of someone very close to me.

On May 25th, 2018 a debut album of a Ukrainian project Fretting Obscurity is released. The album is titled Flags in the dust.
Emotions and messages conveyed by Fretting Obscurity are based on philosophical existentialism and the works of Jean-Paul Sartre. The title of the project speaks of fundamental unknowableness and hostility of the physical realm.
The image used in the title of the album - flags in the dust - was borrowed from William Faulkner. It is a symbol of formally announced ethical values that are not observed in practice in the era of bigotry, consumption and torpor.
As for the music itself, the style of the project was shaped by a 'three-guitar canon' as represented by Mournful Congregation and tends towards the use of multiple layers with occasional heavy passages and doom-death riffs.
The Golden Dwarf is the second album from Satori Junk, Acid Horror Doom band from Milan, Italy.
Varied and melodic seven-tracked trip between fuzzy riffing and psychedelia, where heaviness meets colorful sound of classic synths from the seventies. A bizarre and immersive experience behind the wall of sleep.
Release date: May, 10th 2018

Atmospheric Doom Birthday Feb. 03 2018
A contract has been signed for publishing a new album of Premarone.
Premarone was born in 2010 on the initiative of four friends who decided to give the band the name of the place in which they meet to rehearse, a tiny hillside village in North Italy. Starting from doom metal, psychedelic and progressive/kraut influences, the sound of the group prefers dark, obsessive and hallucinated atmospheres, but is also characterized by an aggressive attitude.
After the recording of a self-produced four track demo, in 2015 Nicotine Records proposes to Premarone the publishing of an album, thus "Obscuris Vera Involvens" is born. The following year the band starts working on the new album, a disquieting concept called "Das Volk der Freiheit".
New CD will release on January, 20.
Throne (Italy) was born in the 2012 under the influence of alcohol from the most disadvantaged bars.
In the same year, the Italian combo hits the first full length "Avoid the Light" produced by Moonlight Records.
The quintet combines sharp riffs, powerful and dark themes into a sludge-core look like Louisiana swamp, with doom and stoner pills to make it darked and depraveted.
After five years of live show with bands such as The Secret, Hierophant, Black Cobra, Bison BC, Saturnalia Temple, Forgotten Tomb and Caronte, in 2017 the Throne returns to the studio to recording new album produced by Black Bow Records (digital) and Endless Winter (CD digipack).

Direct to your subconscious.
A universal language, without words, without limits.
You decide where to travel.

Endless Winter presents the debut album of Spanish band Shattered Sigh. The band was created with the intention to express crushing sadness and melancholy that invade our lives and atone for that inner emptiness, which floods, oppresses and leaves us breathless.
The album was recorded in the late 2016 and early 2017 at Axtudio, Barcelona. The difficult and tortuous recording, somewhat longer than expected, was finally completed with the joint effort of the band and Mr. Ax.
“Distances” is a journey through affliction and disappointment caused by human relationships. We are always surrounded by people - friends andacquaintances - and still the distances between us make us count on ourselves only. Disappointment, pain, rage, grief and a slight spark of hope are the main brushstrokes that you will find in Shattered Sigh's first full length album.
CD will be released on November, 1st.
