:: Monument Ende
The waiting has come to an end. After four long years of preparation the Thuringian masters of avantgarde metal are finally back in the business with their fourth full-length album “Monument Ende”. The first three outputs, that can be seen as part of one concept, have left band the wondering how to go on with Fjoergyn, both musically and lyrically.

Ignis Fatuu (Single CD)
It’s been a while since we heard something from Ignis Fatuu, this isn’t strange if you know they parted with their singer last year. Changes of vocalist are always a bit risky, but they have to be made sometimes. A new singer can give a bit a whole new sound. Fortunately Ignis Fatuu doesn’t let us wait for their full length to listen to their new singer. Now they’ve released a single, giving us the opportunity to listen to their new singer.
This single co …[more]
träumen von aurora (CD)
The successor ties in with the debut album sehnsuchts wogen released as recently as last June both lyrically and musically.

Celtachor are in no means new to the Irish Metal scene, their demo “In the Halls of Our Ancient Fathers&r …[more]
Essentially the music that Obscurity play is a thrill a minute joy ride of Pagan principles and Viking lore! Listening to them makes me want to grab a Viking drinking horn and quaff many a pint of mead while raising my fist in the air and hailing Odin and Thor, and that is how a good Pagan Viking Metal band should make you feel. Obscurity grab your attention by your broad sword and refuse to relinquish their grip until they have finished with you. Nothing wrong with a little ravishing, plunderin …[more]

träumen von aurora (CD)
The band's debut album is conceived of two parts and deals with a break-up and the attempt at overcoming the yearning for the situation which is no more.
The first part, consisting of the pieces »insomnia«, »parfüm«, »welknis«, »neontot« and »flucht«, is about the thoughts and feelings before and immediately after the end of the first person narrator's intense relationship with another person, whereas the second part, consisting of the pieces »firn« and »reflektionen«, restrospec …[more]
