Sanguine Glacialis (Canada) new video out and signed label deal with WormHoleDeath records

Canadian death metallers from Sanguine Glacialis, signed record deal with WormHoleDeath records to release their new album, Hadopelagic, which will be out on April 8th this year. Also, the band have released a video for the song ”Monsters”, which can be seen below.


Maude, vocalist of the band, stated: We took a huge step forward with this album and fans will appreciate it much more than the previous one. Everything is better in this one in my opinion. We want to show the new direction of the band. We want to show how much we’ve grown and how much the band has changed between the two albums. This album is a very dark part of my life, and it’s something that everybody lives in their own way, and I hope this album will help fans go through their own difficulties.” Lyrically, Maude avoids the usual metal clichés. “Most of the songs are personal experiences that I wrote in the form of stories and legends.



Interview: Esperoza

Interview with Zoya Belous, the vocalist of the Moldavian metal band, Esperoza.

Hi Zoya! Please introduce Esperoza.
Hello, we are Esperoza from a little country in Eastern Europe – Moldova. And we are playing kind of symphonic extreme, obscure, dark metal.


You have released a 2nd album under the name of  ”Aum Corrupted”. What is the story behind this album and the lyrical themes?
This album is all about the interpersonal conflicts, never knowing peace, trying to fill the fresh wound gaps with things that absolutely don’t matter, striving for perfecting without leaving the abyss, etc.

To release this album, you have signed with the Italian label, WormHoleDeath…

You have two previous releases, an EP (2012) and a full-lenght (2014). Comparing with these two, is the sound of ”Aum Corrupted” different?
We can say a lot of things about our work, good or bad, but in all these cases it won’t be objective. So it would be much better if the listener would decide by himself/herself how it sounds for him or her.

Aswell you have a video for the song ”Unknown Summons”, what is the video about?
It shows the various problems of the modern world. Of course not all of them, to show all of them wouldn’t be enough just one song.

Interview Nihil

Interview with Enea (drums) of the Albanian Black metal band Nihil.

By Carla Morton

Hi Enea, how have you been?
Hi Carla! I’m just fine. Thank you for this interview and giving us a chance to reach out to wider audiences.


Tell me when Nihil was founded?
Nihil was founded in 2009 by Saimir (bass guitar, vocals) and two other musicians. A year later I joined the band as a drummer and co-composer. Since then the band has played in different line-ups until Atris (guitar) and Baltion (guitar) joined in 2012 stabilizing in our current line-up.

 In 2010 there is a two songs demo, right?
Yeah, the “Unierr” demo. We had far more material at the time, but decided to use the two most attractive songs for a landmark demo. But as I was the new guy at the band we hadn’t started playing my compositions yet.

 Did you start to record your first album?
We started recording for a new album in better quality in 2011, and produced 7 songs which we later released digitally through Youtube and later on as a demo titled “Willingness of strength” in 2012. We are currently working on our next release which I hope will be a full length album.

What are the lyrical themes?
Our main themes are nihilism and antireligion. In our view nihilism stands for ignoring and rejecting all imposed values in order to deflect a society living in denial and revaluate reality on our own terms. There’s no meaning to reality other than what we choose to give it to.

Did you have shows along?
We have played in 5 local gigs in Tirana and are planning on a couple of shows for the summer. We are not planning any tours or shows abroad before finishing our first full-length album.

A message for Nihil fans?
Thank you for all the support and trust, and stay tuned for our next release of Black Metal pandemonium…

Thank you Enea, cheers!
Thanks again for the interview Carla, and for supporting the underground metal bands. Ave!


Interview Life’s Illusion


By: Carla Morton

Life’s Illusion is a Depressive Black/Dark Ambient Metal from Ukraine with an EP released last year. Here is an interview I made with the band’s vocalist Xasthuriath, who she told about the band and also about starting the recordings for a new album.

Hello Xasthuriath, how are things going?
Hails! Doing fine, in spite of the entire enemies coalition against me I’m still alive and kicking.

 About Life’s Illusion, tell me when the band was formed.
 The band was formed circa 2011 by me and a broken acoustic guitar. I just tried to express my emotions and transform my sadness and pain into something, and gradually it became something bigger.

 2 demos are out, one in 2011 and one out in 2013. Tell me a few words about them.
 Honestly, I’m not really happy with them, especially 2011 one – primitive, extremely raw and kind of embarrassing. “Memoires” is slightly better – it means a lot for me because it was composed during my stay in psychiatric ward.

 Last year you released the first EP ”Art Of Despair”. How were those recordings done?
 I didn’t have a stable lineup at that time so I recorded everything internationally – with members of Worthless Life (USA) and Suicide Emotions (Italy). Quality is a bit more improved on this record yet I’m still not really happy with it.

 Who mainly write the lyrics?
 The lyrics were, are, and will be written by me only.

 Any lyrical themes for Life’s Illusion?
 Started off with my depression and pain. Later it developed into the world of a dark Psychotic mind: desolate landscapes, nightmares, obscure emotions and visions.

 Are there some shows coming up this year?
 We are playing two shows in Kiev, with Forgotten Tomb and Psychonaut 4.

 Are you preparing for a new album?
 We are currently in progress of recording of our debut full length “From Pain I Rise ” , coming out this spring on Talheim Records.

 A message for the fans?
 Believe in yourself and stay negative…

 Thank you for your answers, cheers!
