"Visits From The Nighthag Part 1" by The Projectionist

Black Metal from Canada.

Release Date 31-October-2018.

The Projectionist (formerly Lord Matzigkeitus) is a project of pure Hellthundering black metal. Invoking spellcasting through isolation, and darkness.

Ever since laying the foundation of THE PROJECTIONIST in 2015, Lörd Matzigkeitus (Diabolus Amator, The Black Sorcery, Thy Sepulchral Moon, ex-Idolatry) and his tenebrous army have pushed the boundaries of black metal cult. Each release morphing to a new direction from its previous sonic hellscape under the cloak of his arcane, twisting and evolving voice.

“Visits from the NightHag Part 1” is the glorious theatrical third full length of the band, released via Appalachian Noise Records on vinyl LP format (in 3 different color variations, limited to 300 copies).

Lörd Matzigkeitus informs:

“Visits from the NightHag Part 1 is the first installment of the Projectionist’s two-part magnum opus. A jarring, unsettling concept album that unravels the story of a projectionist, accosted by night terrors that induce sleep paralysis so powerful his limbs are to be amputated. The vicious, cryptic NightHag covets what magics she knows him to possess. She will summon all the forces of hell to steal them from him and slaughter all he holds dear...”

Explore a masterpiece of subversive, haunting orchestrations, laid to waste by a building fury of raw black metal from the coldest reaches of the North. Told in the manner of a Shakespearean play with guest vocals from Caeser Tiberius (Ides of Winter), the arcane Aven Haunts and a funeral choir.

Black metal’s borders are being smashed down. Come venture beyond the walls of what was....

"Credo" by Akitsa

Black Metal from Quebec, Canada.

"The new AKITSA album “Credo” is out now available on CD and can be streamed on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Apple Music (vinyl and cassette pre-orders through Hospital Productions will now ship early Dec). Quebec/Canada’s reigning most cult black metal band pretty much ever, AKITSA approach their 20th year as one of the most uncompromising, primal and singular underground black metal bands in the scene.  “Credo” is AKITSA’s most towering, violent, and hypnotic album yet and defines itself as 2018’s unparalleled black metal opus." (Profound Lore Records)

Release Date October 2018.

"Unbound" by Sargeist

Black Metal/Melodic Black Metal from Finland.

Released Date October 2018.

"...‘Unbound’ is both important and imposing as a black metal album in 2018 for its undeniable melodic scent and violently classic expression. It is poignant reminder of the effective thrust and utter nihilistic furor that black metal holds without complication or feigned modernism. Beyond what Sargeist represent in black metal’s torrid landscape of indifference and parody ‘Unbound’ is a vital and energetic guitar album that channels and distills the undying will of man to destroy everything vital for his existence and for that reason I have to highly recommend it. The experience and composition are both undeniably brilliant..." (by Grizzly Butts Review)

"Exitium" by Primaire

Raw Black Metal from Germany.

Primaire is a new formation of veterans from Bavaria (featuring members of Anencephaly, HateCult of the Cunt, Lower Than Zero, Ysbryd and Blutwald) who just unleashed this year their debut album "Exitium" on  2nd-October-2018. What first grabbed my attention was the great art-cover of the album created by Astaroth Cerebre and it didn't disappoint when I hit the play. Primaire plays traditional raw black metal, fierce and powerful with dynamic catchy riffs but also with excellent dark atmospheres and melodies the most elitists will approve off. Their themes are based on anti-religion, death and hate. The only negative is their tracks are perhaps a bit short but on the bright side it won't bore you and is what makes you crave for more!

Recorded between January and March 2018 at Khold Hell Studios Augsburg
Music and Lyrics by Gestalt | Omega written by Nihil
Artwork by Astaroth Cerebre | Logo by Pest Designs

Line up:
Nihil - Guitars
Kadaver - Drums

Khaos - Bass
Isengrin - Vocals
