Quote from label: "Packed in nice designed in totalitarian style A5 booklet
The debut full-lenght is mastered by James Plotkin (O.L.D., Khanate, Jodis etc)
“The Forgotten,” sounds like the bastard child of a marriage between Killing Joke and early Pitch Shifter in the church of Laibach.
“The Forgotten”s power relies on its interplay between the elegant and the primal. The Gothic-Metal brilliance of “Do Not Forget” and the Death-Disco beats of the aptly titled “Death” are perfectly complimented by the ‘Big Black meets Gorefest’ attack of “Anatolia,” an agressive song with hateful lyrics focusing on socio-cultural hypocrisy in the middle-east. The Industrial tension and chilling rape screams of “Drought” (a song about religious violence) gives way to the dark heart of the album that is “Sky-Burial,” a bone-crunchingly heavy track about a specific funeral tradition. Religious violence theme shows its ugly face again in the Post-Punk meets Death Metal trance of “Land Of Executioners” and finally, we have the album closing epic “The Forgotten,” a 7-minute dirge that reaches an emotional climax complete with battle-cries, elegant keyboards, angelic female vocals and the rich baritone of Tanju Can.
“The Forgotten” is an eclectic album that sounds totally unique and out of place in nowadays music scene. It is partly nostalgic, since it sounds almost puritanical with its raw, minimal arrangements and old school drum machine beats, but also is very futuristic with its lyrical themes and overall atmosphere. It is Death Metal created by Martial Industrial freaks, Post-Punk played by some political assassins in-the-making."
Quote from label:"Requiem For The White Wind” is the third album of the local folk/ambient band Kayno Yesno Slonce, whose driving force is Veselin Mitev from Isihia.
In “Requiem For The White Wind” you can hear genuine Balkan music that flows from the bottom of the soul. Music that carries within itself the timeless glory of the Bulgarian mountains. The voice of the bagpipe makes us close our eyes, transport to another time and listen closely to the rhythm of our hearts. Sacral choirs carry long forgotten voices that tell us old mountain legends.
As usual, many traditional instruments were used in the recording process, such as bagpipe, kaval, duduk and drum.
“Requiem For The White Wind” contains 8 songs and is released in an A5 digipak version with conceptual design by the author".
Lingua Fungi’s sound is calm, soft and tasty- enriched with acoustic instruments and brilliant percussions. Long and mature compositions with clear sound drifting in timeless trance.
Shrine’s sound is more ambient/industrial, darker, with more samples and a bit noisy. He is presented by two long compositions dealing with dualism.
The first one –“There” is lighter, dedicated to the human part, light, life, while the second one-“Back” is darker, massive and gloomy. It’s representing machinery, industrial part of our life, the loss of everything human. In other words-Hell.
The collaborative work is released in 500 copies, 3 panel digipack with conceptual design".
Quote from label: "This time Mizar hit right in the heart with melodic, yet filled with sorrow songs, sung by the choir for Byzantine and Eastern Orthodox medieval music called “Harmosini”.
Balkan Peninsula is a place where every single stone has his own history and it is soaked with blood. This fact make music from the region filled with sadness and beauty, desperation and courage and love and hate in the same time.
Being dark wave band since the 80’s Mizar gained cult status among the music lovers in Balkan and neighbor countries. But this album is different! It still keeps their trade mark sound, still can be described as Byzantine gothic. It still has slow songs, dark wave feeling, but this time no one of their remarkable leading singers are presented! Deep voices are singing with pride and dedication, the songs were written ages ago and this makes your skin shiver. The choir is the leading singer, which make the album sound much more epic, heroic and thrilling. There are guitar oriented songs and traditional tune of Ljubka Rondova from Bulgaria (“White Sea”).
Close your eyes, and you will see the fall of Constantinople, listen and you will hear the steps of Alexander.
The album is packed in elegant A5 format digibook designed in traditional Balkan Art manner with drawings by Corvus".
Quote from label: "First DVD of this pagan metal band. Double layer DVD contains official video of “Wreck” (song from the debut album “Where the heart burns”), also acoustic concert, documentary telling about the story, beginning and interesting facts about the band, interviews, fan videos filmed in different places and events.
In acoustic performance played in front of selected audience you can see the guys pay homage to Bulgarian folklore. They play songs from both albums with acoustic guitars, tambourine and sing songs for ancient heroes, desperate struggle and bitter loss.
The concert was recorded and mixed by Ivaylo from Bulgarian ethno ethereal band IRFAN.
Quote from label:"Mini CD of WALDEN (Germany) with total playing time of 21 minutes. “WALDEN” is printed in cardboard digifile with conceptual design, based on photos taken by Antonia Vicheva in the glorious mountains Rhodopy in Bulgaria.
Slow and melancholic music with Nordic feeling and a lot of passion despite its minimalistic character. Gentle and in the same time thrilling acoustic guitar tunes played in honor of the Awakening of the Mother Nature after the long cold winter. The music is slow, melodic and in the same time dramatic at places".
