Denuit from France released Black Sun in May this year and is shooting videos for each of the 10 songs on the album and with Negative Wave, we are at video number 5 so in the next coming months, we can expect some more visual gems from Denuit. Can’t wait? Check out their fantastic Darkwave on the full album Black Sun.
With a shitload of intensity vocalist Nicol Hofmanov tell us to wake up in the latest single from the Czech Republic based Stell/\ris. Founded in 2019 and Dust of Future is the second single from this Modern Metal band with loads of Metalcore influences. Stell/\ris is one of those bands that are on route to be a big name in the scene, you can just hear that.
Usually when I find a band that I don’t know I have a listen to the single on the Tube and save the album for later when I have more time to listen to it but when I heard Infected from Blame Me! I rushed over to their recently released album The Invisible You cause I really needed to hear the full album. And I was not disappointed, fantastic Alternative Rock from Finland.
Kælan Mikla has released another single, Ósýnileg, and once again the visuals are stunning, just like the song. I love how the band always stays true to their Synth-punk roots but with every release, they seem to be developing a whole new musical level.
Lucifer isn’t afraid to try out new things and this cover for Gone with the Wind is My Love, a 1967 Soul song from Rita & The Tiaras, is proof of that. I’m impressed how they kept the heart of the song alive and gave it a bit more of a mystical touch and a little lesser happy Soul vibe than the original song has. And the collaboration with Elin Larsson from Blues Pills is something that deserves a follow-up.
Mundilfari from France creates music that gives me a hard time describing it but something like Progressive Symphonic Alternative Heavy Metal will do. Mundilfari throws so many influences in their art that it’s a real pleasure to listen to their debut album The Last Soul Standing, released in May.
The Bateleurs have with vocalist Sandrine Orsini somebody who can be the definition of powerhouse vocals. The Bluesy Hardrock from the Portuguese band is something that will do great in smaller clubs or bars, you know, sitting at the bar with a beer and The Bateleurs on stage, best night ever! Rise Above The Storm is the first single from the upcoming album The Sun of the Tenth House. Stay tuned for a release date.
Dom Zly from Poland is going to release a new EP and that’s good news for everybody as their Post-Black Metal is out of this world. I was already a fan of their 2019 album Rytual and the new EP Śnisz bory tak gęste shows an overall improvement on their art so you better get ready for them. Stay tuned for the release date.
And more Polish Metal, this time from Arshenic. The band present with Bloodsucker the first of four new singles and this song make me already eagerly awaiting the next three songs. Arshenic performs perfectly executed Dark Rock and they are the perfect band to close this playlist.
