This second album of Then Comes Silence, plainly entitled “II”, follows the steps of the first one. The Swedish act proves being extremely effective in its genre, by delivering a true gem of a record.

Merciful Nuns – Exosphere VI

From the darkest, coldest depths; a shimmering aural wall ever so slowly takes shape and builds in intensity. Faint, hypnotic, ancient whispers begin to surface. A much clearer voice from beyond now begins to take form and reminds us of that which we have forgotten. Thundering, deliberate drums and bass lines, perfectly blended guitar riffs… Keep Reading

Garden of Delight – Enki´s Temple | Rediscovered

If there is a philosophy of Enki, it manifests and explains itself in early Mesopotamian and Egyptian thought, where the true creator of the universe was manifest within nature, and that nature enveloped both the Anunnaki, and the humans. Nature, as the Great Mother, was still supreme, despite any patriarchal scheme to the contrary. Admittedly,… Keep Reading

Quasimodo is another really good surprise of the Underground scene, from The New Millennium.

They are doing some really fine Gothic Rock music with a… Keep Reading

What has surprised us the reviewers, is the quality of third wave Goth/Post Punk that has come from Greece.

Rising from the cold lands of Sweden; there’s the powerful howl of the Wolf: Canis Lupus first full length titled “Shape Of the Ghost”.

Johnathan | Christian – Beautiful Hideous

With this first album, the Swedish Johnathan | Christian are delivering a real display of Darkwave elegance. The ability to produce extremely polished songs, solid and catchy, strikes the most. The production is immaculate, but the vocals bring warmth and exudes soulful tremors (“Fallen”). “Before the Dark”, a cover of French “dark” pop diva Mylène… Keep Reading


Ascetic: – Self Initiation

I rarely find brand new bands which I immediately like. I don’t know, it’s difficult for me nowadays. I prefer old school stuff and am used to that kind of sound. I like more harsh and unpolished output. I even prefer some imperfectness, it makes a human touch to music which nowadays is filled with… Keep Reading
