Nebelhorn – ‘Urgewalt’ – New Album!

Nebelhorn is a Viking Black Metal project from Germany, lead by one man by the name of Wieland, that always sang about Viking related events and their mythology. The latest full-length, ‘Urgewalt’, follows that line with an alignment structured in a timeline, and it takes you away to a different time and a different place.

‘Urgewalt’ is a quite diverse album, which includes several genres meticulously intertwined with each other, such as Folk/Pagan/Viking/Black Metal, and is definitely worth checking out!

‘Auf Bifrösts Rücken’ – it has a great sense of melody whilst whipping up the aggressive sides of black metal. All the musical elements and the vocals blend together quite well and make for an incredibly enjoyable first track...

Describing themselves as “Heavy, Low, & Witchy” and claiming to “create music for the night sky”, FRAYLE are a female-fronted doom / witch-rock band that draw their inspiration from seminal acts such as Sleep, Portishead, Beastwars, Blonde Redhead, Kyuss, Massive Attack, Down, and Chelsea Wolfe… FRAYLE exists at the intersection of doom and dream pop.

Gwyn’s voice is like a gentle ethereal breeze blanketed by the lunar light of a full moon. It blends all too naturally with the heavy droning guitars and thundering layer created by the drums and bass...

Yuka & Chronoship was formed in 2009 by Yuka Funakoshi (a rare female prog rock artist in the world) and three experienced session musicians (Shun Taguchi, Takashi Miyazawa, and Ikko Tanaka).

Band member Shun Taguchi said: The last song “Did You Find A Star?” was originally planned to sung by John Wetton, but he passed away from cancer and at first we planned not to include it on the album. However, although unfortun...
