Three years after the second full-length 'Faunalia', the singer/keyboardist Selvans returns with a new EP. 'Dark Italian Art' is definitely the Manifesto of the Italian composer. Selvans confirms the prog rock and symphonic influences introduced in the previous work (with Goblin and Devil Doll ruling the roost), imprinting them definitely in his folk-horror scenery. The EP introduces 'Corvo Morto' (Italian for 'Dead Crow'), a character created by Selvans in collaboration with the horror writer Luigi Musolino and to whom the track 'Verrà Corvo Morto' (Italian for 'Corvo Morto will come') is connected, as well as the homonimous tale attached to the 80 pages digi-book version of the EP. Aside from the second new track 'Iò Pan!' and the outro 'L'Errante', Selvans celebrates the artistic heritage of his country with the cover of 'The Hanged Ballad' taken from the first Death SS' album and a cover medley of the legendary album 'Inferno' by Metamorfosi, a progressive italian rock band from the 70's. This will be the first work in which Selvans is joined by his full live band, made of valid musicians who are with him since several years of concerts. Learned the lesson of the great masters of the horror and the absurd in music – with Screamin' Jay Hawkins and King Diamond above all – Selvans offers a decandent and peculiar interpretation which is brazenly Italian. Walking among woods and ruins of ghost villages, Selvans leads a procession of outcasts hidden behind animal masks, on a muddy stage weaved with roots, whispering rituals of rural magic and cursed doggerels. Curtain up!

Initially formed under the working title, ?Order of Shadow? (at the time including Gareth Murdock of Alestorm), Drakonis has been an on going project for many years, featuring Saul McMichael and Lee McCartney of pagan metal veterans, Waylander. The band remained a studio project until 2015, when a line up was assembled to take things to the live arena. ?The Great Miasma? is the third release from the band and a concept EP with a story spanning three songs. Each chapter follows the ritualistic sacrifice, possession and wrath of a young girl to appease an ancient god. Each song will be accompanied by a story driven, highly visual music video, released out of sequence, bringing the bands live theatrics to the medium of film. Only when all three videos have been released and played in order, will the story become clear.

Cold Records - a label under the banner of Concilium (Ordo MCM, Clavis Secretorvm, AnnapurnA) dedicated post-black metal, shoegaze, and other atmospheric sounds - is proud to present Unreqvited's momentous debut album, Disquiet, on vinyl LP format, on black vinyl (standard) and a very limited edition on splatter vinyl. Originally released toward the end of 2016 in an extremely limited edition, Disquiet soon found fervent followers of its expansive, breathtaking heights. Here, the mysterious Unreqvited blasted forth with a heartbreaking form of post-black metal completely given over to the most manic of emotions, with each of its seven equally epic tracks taking turns that were simultaneously depressing and uplifting, downward and heavenward. Disquiet didn't so much as reinvent the "blackgaze" idiom as it did perfect it; there's simply no denying the intense gravitas of Unreqvited's songwriting, no matter where you stand on the validity of that idiom. Unperturbed by such trivial matters, Cold fell in love with the album upon its initial release, and now endeavors to spread its majesty ever wider.
DSKNT was officially born in 2013 as the audial subdivision of DSKNT Industry, which is involved in arts by several ways such recording, music composition and design creation. The main goal of this scission was to build up the noise shaped personal face of Asknt?s implication in music creation. Pushing away the traditional Black Metal-way of thinking, the first album ?PhSPHR Entropy? will feature some of the material composed short after the split-up of Ab Occulto in 2010, reworked during 2011-2013, and new tracks. In December 2016, the vocalist of Antiversum, signed on Invictus Productions, joined the act to perform the vocals on the DSKNT?s future releases. During summer 2017, a video trailer of the second track of ?PhSPHR Entropy? S.O.P.O.R was released on Youtube platform. At the same period, the track was part of a special compilation issued by Via Omega paper zine in USA. DSKNT is currently working on the two forthcoming split releases which should be available in 2018.
ANNAPURNA is proud to present REVERORUM IB MALACHT's highly anticipated fourth album, Im Ra Distare Summum Soveris Seris Vas innoble. As sole practitioners of Roman Catholic Black Metal, REVERORUM IB MALACHT are truly in a league of their own. Their three albums to date - 2011's Urkaos, the three iterations of 2014's De Mysteriis Dom Christi, and last year's Ter Agios Numini - are unparalleled in their intensity of vision and sound. But with Im Ra Distare Summum Soveris Seris Vas innoble, whatever conceptions of "vastness" and "density" the band deeply explored prior have been hereby dwarfed.\n\nLike any of the band's albums, REVERORUM IB MALACHT's Im Ra Distare Summum Soveris Seris Vas innoble is not an easy album to navigate, nor was that ever an option to begin with. For music - truly MUSIC, whether it be classed as "black metal" or "ambient" or otherwise - this personal and idiosyncratic was meant for exploration of truths far beyond the surface level, both above and below, encompassing the totality of eternity and its incomprehension. Layers are built upon layers upon layers, each one denser and yet more Spartan than the next, weaving a maze that becomes a riddle that circles back to a maze again, like the very Ouroboros forever swallowing its tail. It very much "sounds like" black metal (or ambient-intensive black metal, that is) but rather aims for what IS...existing, spreading further, forever outwards...living, dying, being.\n\nTo unravel the mystery of Im Ra Distare Summum Soveris Seris Vas innoble is to begin to approach the enigma of REVERORUM IB MALACHT.
