Well, it’s been yet another month of great music – here’s our highlights from May that are worth another listen!
Red Moon Architect – Return Of The Black Butterflies
Track to check out: NDE
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/red-moon-architect-return-of-the-black-butterflies-review/
I bloody loved their second album Fall, yet they’ve surpassed it with Return Of The Black Butterflies. This is funeral doom at its finest, and I am completely in love.
Ajattara – Lupaus
Track to check out: Ave Satana
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/ajattara-lupaus-review/
Well damn, talk about a comeback! Lupaus is the first release from Ajattara since their 2012 hiatus and it’s a phenomenal release to say the least. Seeing the new songs at Nummirock in a few weeks is going to be killer!
Nighon – The Somme
Track to check out: Scharnhorst
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/nighon-the-somme-review/
The Somme is a very mighty piece from metallers Nighon and I can’t stop listening to it! This is a release that will get under your skin and you’ll remember it for all the right reasons. And, as with Ajattara – I’m very keen to check this talented band out at Nummirock too!
Freakangel – How The Ghost Became
Track to check out: Insight
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/freakangel-how-the-ghost-became-review/
This album took me by surprise. Combining hardcore with industrial is nothing new but Freakangel have got the attitude and sound of industrial down. It reminds me a bit of Spahn Ranch which is an obscure industrial act nowadays but nonetheless great!
Sabbath Assembly – Rites of Passage
Track to check out: Shadows Revenge
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/sabbath-assembly-rites-of-passage-review/
Rites of Passage is a complex album and it can be hard to take but beneath its harsh facade lies an interesting album with moments of transcendental beauty.
Lichtgestalt – Tempus Fugit
Track to check out: Virus Mensch
Our review: http://www.soundscapemagazine.com/lichtgestalt-tempus-fugit-review/
There’s a lot of class action going on in this album. It has all the bells and whistle of a classic but manages to update it and makes metal great again. It makes me want to play the original Doom.
