Kolony Records to release Be'Lakor's Of Breath and Bone to North American Audience
Italian label Kolony Records inked a brand new distribution deal for all of North America through DisManic via eOne Distribution. Kolony's aim is to expanded and reach more European fans and stores since it's 2008 formation. With the new distribution deal, they are able to furnish us some good music via Australian band Be'lakor. Of Breath and Bone is the band's third album and Kolony Records hopes this will bring them a wider audience. Of Breath and Bone was released in Europe last year to critical acclaim and Kolony hopes the June 2013 North American release will bring the same. The opening track, "Abeyance", boasts some good guitar harmonies by George Kosmas and Shaun Sykes over some solid drumming. George Kosmas's vocals remind me of 80s Fields of the Nephilim / Sisters of Mercy type thing. The modern sound and the waver vocals are a great mix. "Abeyance" is a wonderful mixture of vintage and modern metal.
Heretique De Non Existentia Dei Via Nocturna Release: 26 March 2016
This is kinda happy to be death metal. It's, dare I say, jaunty! Listening to the tracks from Heretique's De Non Existentia Dei, make me happy. I have a loopy grin on my face and I'm banging my head along with the music. To be sure, De Non Existentia Dei is a heavy album. It's a veritable wall of sound. The vocals are Mojo Jojo worthy. But the tempo and timber fill me with glee! The songs are solid and concise. Sometimes they end before I want them to and I have to play them over again! This is the most awesome death black metal album. For those who are new to the genre or are curious, definitely start here with Heretique's De Non Existentia Dei. It's gobsmackingly done and done well. It's interesting and fun. It' oozes a delicious evil.

Turn on. Tune in. Drop out. That's how I feel listening to Klechdy by Thy Worshiper. It's ethereal and moving. The music totally draws you in. It's hard to put Klechdy into a category because so much of the compositions overlap in genre. The drumming can be tribal. The vocals can be folksy. The guitars have shades of avant garde, progressive, and Viking folk. There is no way to get bored listening to Klechdy. Thy Worshiper paints stunning visuals with music. Listening to Klechdy is a fully immersive musical experience.
