Finsterforst – Mach Dich Frei: Like no other band, Finsterforst managed to claim the depths of Germany`s Black Forest as their own source of myths: the German sevenpiece erected a monument full of nature romanticism for their home soil and filled it with an astonishing wealth of details. Mach Dich Frei! – the forth Finsterforst album – boldly crosses all boundaries of the pagan and folk metal genres and invites the listener to a cinematic and epic journey.

Thulcandra – Ascension Lost: „Ascension Lost“ is the third album from Munich Thulcandra, whose reputation as independent and especially melancholic-melodic Black metallers is since the successful debut „Fallen Angel’s Dominion“ excellent. Also on their new record „Ascension Lost“ their darkly majestic riffs are always covered by atmospheric lead guitars and are whipped up by frantic drums.
HATE – Crusade:Zero

Hate – Crusade:Zero: Hate from Poland stand for highly dramatic death and black metal soundscapes which see menacing blastbeats melt into pure elegance! Crusade: Zero was recorded at the infamous Polish Hertz Studios (Vader, Decapitated, Behemoth) and enthralls its audience with epic puissance and melodies worshipping at the darkest of altars. Lucifer must be hellishly proud of his sons!
