1. DoM  ‘Gud Times (Good Times)

Yes this is some really good news for the indie audience. DoM are back with an ace track ‘Gud Times (Good Times)‘ after about 6 years of silence (in relation to an original release). The US band feels nostalgic about good old times, and the synth is addictive as hell, when the chorus sets off. A lovely one indeed, and lets hope for an album announcement soon. For the time being…

  1. Cryo Chamber Collaboration  – ‘Yog-Sothoth

The fourth album in the Cryo Chamber label’s Lovecraft series gets its inspiration from one of Lovecraft‘s most prevalent gods. Yog-Sothoth was one of the most often mentioned of Lovecraft’s gods. He featured heavily in the “Necronomicon“, and he even fathered several children which would terrorize the Earth in “The Dunwich Horror“.

This time around Cryo Chamber has cut back on the overall play-length, coming in at two hours. There are 20 artists involved in this collaboration including well-known artists from Cryo Chamber like Atrium Carceri and Northumbria, as well as some excellent talent from outside the label like Kammarheit, Kristoffer Oustad and Gydja.

Follow these artists as they traverse the dusty tomes of the “Necronomicon” and the maddening truths of cosmic chaos. Those that come in contact with this malevolent deity rarely give a sensible account thereafter.

  1. Slowdive – ‘Don’t Know Why

Our beloved 90’s shoegaze/dream pop band Slowdive have recently made available a new video for the song ‘Don’t Know Why’ from their latest album ‘Slowdive‘ (Dead Oceans, 2017) that has fully gained our interest back on them after 22(!) years. The new video is directed by Grant Singer. The hard to understand video is about a sad couple and starts with a scene of a playful husky at dawn or in an inexplicable gloaming in a meadow. The second scene is at the beach with the sad couple still in gloaming light. After that it switches to their real life. Enjoy!

  1. Witchery – ‘Welcome, Night’

Formed by the former members of Satanic Slaughter in 1997, Witchery from Sweden claim a fair place next to big names of thrash metal. Although there have been significant line-up changes (in 2016 the new, third, singer Angus Norder and third drummer Chris Barkensjö were added), the band hasn’t lost their quality and known blackened thrash/speed metal sound, judging by their latest lyric video ‘Welcome, Night‘. Their new album is coming on November 10th ‘I Am Legion‘ via Century Media.
