Having recently signed a two-album deal with ENDEZZMA, Dark Essence  Records have today announced  the details of “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, the third full-length album from the Norwegian Black Metallers, and which is set to herald in the new year when it hits the streets on the 22nd January 2021.

Formed in 2006 by frontman M. Shax,  ENDEZZMA’s  current lineup, includes M. Malphas on guitars, Nihil on Rythm Guitar,  Skriu on  Drums and Aske on bass, forming a cohesive group of musicians who together demonstrate a  brand of brutal, fiercely intense, and yet aesthetically mystical approach to their music. 

With “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, ENDEZZMA have taken a huge step forward in their song writing.  Mixing the raw grimness of the early days of black metal with the epic grandeur of later bands, to produce an album that bridges the gap between dark anthems and primitive aggression. 

 Recorded at the Vika Studio and the Malpherno Studio in Norway, “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder”, was mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studio in Stockholm.  With cover painting by Stefan Todorovic/Kahos Diktator Design, the album will be available in Digipak CD and LP formats, with an A2 poster included with the vinyl version.

Tracklisting for “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder” is as follows:

  1. The Awakening
  2. The Name of the Night is a Strong Tower
  3. Anomalious Abomination
  4. The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder
  5. Formless and Void
  6. Garden ov Heathen
  7. Wild Glorior Death
  8. Open Your Eyes and Stab the Sight
  9. Arrows of Equilibrium
  10. Closure

Commenting on the album ENDEZZMA had this to say:

We are excited to finally bring out the news and details of “The Archer, Fjord and the Thunder” because this is an album into which we really have placed not just a piece of our heart but also our  whole soul.  Never before have we worked as hard and as determinedly on every little detail of an album.  In it we really see the band arise out of the ashes as a new golden entity, with a hunger  that is more rabid than ever, filled with the desire to set the world ablaze with our music.

We feel that the album takes the band into a new epic and mythical landscape and sends  the listeners out on an  infernal , intense, and epic journey to a dark and obscure world that is lit by the archer’s flaming arrows of equilibrium, wild glorious death and anomalious abomination.

“The Archer Fjord and the Thunder” should be considered as a concept album, and we invite you into our world of stellar darkness, to explore our path of burning devotion…We are Endezzma  “

Vestindien Logo PR

VESTINDIEN  might not be a band that is immediately recognisable to most music fans, but that’s about to change, because the Bergen-based  band has just been snapped up by Dark Essence Records.

Formed in 2009, VESTINDIEN’s first, and up to now, only, release, was 2011’s debut EP “We are the Lords of Hellfire”, which delivered classic 90’s hardcore, with a heavy metal twist.  But only one year after its release, and despite having built up a solid following eager to experience the band’s  frenetic live shows, VESTINDIEN called it a day.

Absolute silence followed for the next seven years, until, in 2019, some of the band members got together and decided that VESTINDIEN needed to make music again.  And make music is exactly what the band’s current lineup of Torjus Slettnosk on vocals, Simon Skøien on guitars, Karl Johan Johannessen on drums and Pål Eirik Veseth on bass did, demonstrating a more introverted and less aggressive approach to their art.

It was at this point that  Dark Essence entered the picture, as Slettsnok explains:

Dark Essence was the only label we contacted when the album was finished. It was important to us that the label be based in Bergen, with people we trust. The only other option would have been to do it ourselves.

We were of course very happy when they felt the same way as we do about our music and we are looking forward to collaboration with the very good people of Dark Essence.

Endezzma PR 2020

Norwegian Black Metallers ENDEZZMA have signed a two-album deal with Dark Essence Records, joining a roster that includes some of the best known and established bands in the genre, as well as some of the upcoming artists that are making huge waves on the scene.

Formed in 2006 by frontman M. Shax, ENDEZZMA’s original lineup featured URGEHAL’s late, and much lamented, Trondr Nefas.  The duo, joined by other, experienced Norwegian musicians, quickly established a die-hard following, impressed by the band’s live appearances, which were imbued with  morbid overtones and an undercurrent of barely-suppressed viciousness.   “Alone”, ENDEZZMA’s aptly named first release,  cemented the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with. A band that went its own way, regardless of what others thought, or were doing.

The debut full-length “Erotik Nekrosis” appeared in 2012, and proved that ENDEZZMA was a band well-able to weave an old school atmosphere into  eerie, seductive, modern compositions, to produce  an album full of necro requiems.    It also marked the death of Trondr Nefas, which left  a vacuum within the band.  A  vacuum that was eventually filled by guitarist M. Malphas, which allowed ENDEZZMA to go on to explore mystical dark fields with their sophomore full-length “Arcane Abyss”.

Aside from Shax on vocals and Malphas on guitars, ENDEZZMA’s lineup includes Nihil on Rythm Guitar,  Skriu on  Drums and Aske on  Bass  –  a group of experienced musicians, hungry to bring their brand of brutal, fiercely intense, and yet aesthetically mystical approach, to Dark Essence Records, a label they know will understand where they are coming from, and where they want to go.

Commenting on what fans can expect from their third album, ENDEZZMA had this to say:

The upcoming album has been mixed and mastered by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studio in Stockholm. He Is well known for his great work on recent  WATAIN and MAYHEM albums, so we knew that we were in the hands of someone who would know exactly what we wanted.

 Together with Dark Essence we intend to meet the high expectations that have been placed on us, and come out with an album of extremely strong material that will take fans into a mystical world of stellar darkness filled with mythical outcasts and characters. 

 Epic energy will burn the night!
It’s time to let the Stellar Darkness shine!
WE ARE ENDEZZMA

Vulture Industries Live Stream PR1

There are virtually zero good things that have come out of the current pandemic, but one of the positives is that fans the world-over, who would normally only be able to watch their favourite bands on stage via poor-quality fan-filmed footage,  are now getting to watch the bands perform via live streaming, using multiple cameras and high quality sound.

One of the bands who will be communicating with their fans this way is Norway’s VULTURE INDUSTRIES, who have joined up with photographer Jarle Hovda Moe, who is running a series of professionally filmed,  live-streaming concerts, via his Medstraum series,  to film their show.

The show will be filmed at a local Bergen historic location, the Vestindien, which was the town’s last public brothel, and will take place at 22:00 CET on Saturday 20th June,

Fans will be able to watch the event live on Facebook on the VULTURE INDUSTRIES page at https://www.facebook.com/vultureindustries/ , on the band’s website at http://www.vulture-industries.net/ and on YouTube.

Exact streaming links will be available closer to the time, and all information and updates will be published on the Facebook event at https://www.facebook.com/events/268027394402784/

Commenting on the concert, frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen had this to say:

For no other reasons than the anguishing prospect of being bored to death by the dull reality of covid-19 and a deep philanthropic urge to keep you all amused, we give you VULTURE INDUSTRIES live from the historic location Vestindien. Now a museum, this was once Bergen’s own House of the Rising Sun. For this special evening we will dub it House of the Irregular and we invite you all to join us by the Bergen docks for an hour of musical rarities new and old.

The show is absolutely free for everyone, but Charity is endorsed and appreciated, but, we emphasise, not obligatory via  Vipps: 92266316 or Paypal: paypal.me/VultureIndustries

 Special merchandise, designed by the Romanian musician and multi-media artist Costin Chioreanu especially for the event is available to purchase from https://vultureindustries.bigcartel.com

With a career spanning over a decade and with hundreds  of shows under their belts, Norwegian Progressive Metallers  VULTURE INDUSTRIES  are  well known both for the technical skill of their lineup, which comprises Øyvind Madsen and  Eivind Huse on Guitars, Tor Helge Gjengedal on Drums, Kyrre Teigen on Bass and Bjørnar E. Nilsen on Vocals,  and the eccentric and somewhat manic antics of frontman Nilsen, whose on-stage weirdness has garnered a multitude of fans for the band over the years.

Acarash PR 2020

With their music imbued with esoteric  poetry and ritualistic contemplation, Occult Metallers ACÂRASH have today released their second-full length album.  Titled “Descend to Purity”, the album is a masterful blend of Hard Rock and Black Metal that explores and expands the boundaries of Rock with a sound that varies between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive doom.

ACÂRASH’s  lineup, which includes Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals,  has created a distinctive sound that is founded on the pillars of the 80s and 90s avant-garde rockers THE VOID and which respects and embraces tradition whilst at the same time bringing something new and fresh to the table.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem at the Caliban Studios in Oslo, track listing for  “Descend to Purity” is as follows:

  1. Descend to Purity
  2. Satanic Obsession
  3. Desecrate. Liberate.
  4. Goat, Skull, Ritual Circle
  5. Below Ceremonial
  6. Three Knives
  7. Steel Hunter
  8. Red Stone Betrayal

Acarash Descend Albumart PR

Describing “Descend to Purity”, as  “A vessel for justice, strength and revenge”, ACÂRASH recently had this to say about the album:

This album is a potent cocktail of visionary blackened doom and primitive heavy metal. Emerging from dark spiritual clarity and hard work, the music conquers and transforms. 

 Transformation through suffering. Conquest through purity.

“Descend to Darkness” is out today, 29th May, on Dark Essence Records, and is available in CD, Gatefold vinyl and Digital formats from all the usual retailers and streaming services as well as the following:

Acarash PR 2020

“This song is a beautiful two-headed beast. It’s a tribute to the initiated and wise, while at the same time filled with utter contempt for the ruling class. “Below Ceremonial” is a venture into the realm of justice” is how Occult Metallers ACÂRASH  describe the single that Dark Essence Records have released  from the band’s upcoming album.

The track can be streamed or downloaded at the following:

https://darkessencerecords.fanlink.to/Beyond-Ceremonial

The album itself, titled “Descend to Purity”, will be the band’s second full-length, and is a perfect illustration of ACÂRASH’s mastery at exploring and developing the boundaries of rock.  By blending Hard Rock with Black Metal, the band’s lineup of Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals,  have come up with a distinctive sound that is wholly ACÂRASH’s own,  alternating, as it does, between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive doom.

Founded on the pillars of the 80s and 90s avant-garde rockers THE VOID , the essence of ACÂRASH’s music has, at its core, esoteric  poetry and ritualistic contemplation, and is a prime example of how a band can respect and embrace tradition whilst bringing to it something new and fresh.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Ruben Willem at the Caliban Studios in Oslo, track listing for  “Descend to Purity” is as follows:

Formed in Oslo in the fall of 2016, and founded on the pillars of the 80s and 90s avant-garde rockers THE VOID, ACÂRASH is a band which, whilst embracing tradition, nevertheless manages to forge a sound all of its own. A  sound in which esoteric poetry and ritualistic contemplation are central to the music, and whose nuances are mirrored in both sound and musical contrasts.

With “Descend to Purity, Acârash’s lineup of of Sølve Sæther on drums, Lukas Paulsen on guitars and Anlov P. Mathiesen on bass and vocals, have managed  to both reinvent and  preserve, and in doing so have delivered a record that explores and develops the boundaries of rock and metal, and alternates between raw catchiness, dark introspection, and progressive doom, with consummate ease.

Costin Chioreanu VR PR4

When this year’s Inferno Festival was cancelled due to the current Corona virus crisis also cancelled was the much-anticipated guided Virtual Reality tour “Midnight Cemetery” that was going to be brought to you by Costin Chioreanu and Adrian Tabacaru. The exhibition would have encompassed the entire story of the album “Afterlife Romance” by Chioreanu and Sofia Sarri, and would have allowed fans to enter the world of Costin Chioreanu’s art, enabling them to walk amongst, and through, elements of his artwork, and to interact with them at some levels.

Having seen how the cancellation of all live shows and forced isolation has affected the morale of music fans everywhere, Dark Essence Records and Fruits of Venus Productions have joined forces to give fans something to look forward to by offering the “Midnight Cemetery” experience to everyone as a free-to-download Virtual Reality Tour.

Produced by Adrian Tabacaru and Costin Chioreanu “Midnight Cemetery” can be explored using a dedicated VR-Headset, or as a standalone PC Game.  As Dark Essence explains:

In these dark times for humanity, Fruits of Venus Productions and Dark Essence Records are starting a campaign to spread a combination of art, music and technology, using some alternative tools and a new type of approach in what will be a first in the history of metal music.

After the “Midnight Cemetery” exhibition, which was supposed to have its premiere at Inferno Festival 2020, was cancelled due to the current pandemic, Costin Chioreanu and Adrian Tabacaru, the creators of this amazing virtual experience, realised that this project was suitable for spreading all over the world, and, that by doing so, they could offer moments of magic to people in lock-down in their homes. Having released “Afterlife Romance” in 2019 and hearing Costin’s ideas, we were also enthusiastic about this endeavour.

Fruits of Venus Commented:

You will hopefully find that the “Midnight Cemetery” virtual tour is a new way to experience art in the current digital domain. A premiere for the music industry, it gives a new dimension to a recording, by giving life not just to the music, but also to all the illustrations created for booklets, in one fascinating virtual experience.

Instead of being stuck in Oslo, and available only to those attending Inferno 2020 “Midnight Cemetery” will now be available world-wide and everyone will be able to experience it via a free download App. The world-wide premiere is set for March 31st, 2020 and on that day we will publish the download link so you can enjoy it, and spread it to your friends and beyond.

Whilst waiting for its impending release, you can check out the very first images from this experience and see a little insight into the creation of the project below and at https://youtu.be/aIeOVX66xx4

Nyrst PR3

Icelandic Black Metallers NYRST have released a second track from their upcoming album “Orsök”, an album filled with incredibly cold, stark, and barren soundscapes, whose lyrics come straight from old horror literature, laced with cosmic undertones.

The track, ” Nástirni”, can be streamed or downloaded from https://darkessencerecords.fanlink.to/Nastirni

It can also be heard below and on YouTube at https://youtu.be/TLFHMrp8aZc


A
Formed in the winter of 2013 and drawing their inspiration from their grim and icy Icelandic heritage,  NYRST’s lineup consists of Snæbjörn on vocals,  Eysteinn and Davíð on guitars, Egill on bass, and Sveinbjörn on drums.  NYRST’s first demo, released in 2018, garnered considerable praise for the band’s use of diverse vocals and chilling atmosphere.  Interpreting  their studio sound for  the stage, the band are able to deliver mystic and haunting live performances which have gained them respect in the metal scene of their native Iceland.

Nyrst PR7

Set for release of Dark Essence Records on the 24th April in CD, Vinyl and Digital formats, and with artwork by Moonrot and additional artwork by Skadvaldur, track listing for “Orsök” is as follows

1. Æðri verur
2. Orsök
3. Nástirni
4. Athöfn
5. Hvísl hinna holdlausu
6. Turnar í fjarska

Recently commenting on the video, the band had this to say:

NYRST are proud to premiere the music video for “Orsök”, our first single and the title track from our upcoming album. We had a very specific vision in mind to convey the harsh and barren landscape of our country, which was our main inspiration when we wrote the album. There is something about the desolate wastes of the highland that gives you a sense of hopelessness, but also this immense calm, a perfect symbiotic relationship that made us find a very accurate atmosphere and sound which made all this possible.

 The lyrics of Orsök tell of a lone wanderer and his journey across the frozen wasteland,  where he is forced by the Gods to sacrifice his young daughter to host a Goddess or a cosmic entity, thereby bringing doom upon life. Departing with the baby, absolute loneliness and grief become his companions, following him to the end of his journey. 

 In his final moments, conceding to the spirits,  he realizes his mistake and embraces the void.

It is fitting that Black Metallers NYRST have chosen the title track to introduce their  debut full-length album “Orsök”, because it is a track whose sound illustrates to perfection an album that is filled with incredibly cold, stark, and barren soundscapes, and whose lyrics come straight from old horror literature and are laced with cosmic undertones.

The band’s grim and icy Icelandic heritage, is where NYRST draws its inspiration, and the band’s new video for the track “Orsök”, illustrates this to perfection.  The video, by Daníel Puskás of Valhallartworks can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/m4oZcDqB1i8

With a lineup that today is comprised of Snæbjörn on vocals,  Eysteinn and Davíð on guitars, Egill on bass, and Sveinbjörn on drums,  NYRST was formed in the winter of 2013.  The band’s first demo was released in 2018 and garnered praise for the band’s use of diverse vocals and chilling atmosphere, whilst NYRST’s  mystic and haunting stage performances have gained them respect as  a live band in the metal scene of their native Iceland.

NYRST’s next live appearance will be on Saturday 29th February at the by:Larm Festival, in Oslo, Norway, followed by the 14th March at the Hard Rock Cafe in Reykjavik, and the 18th April at Gaukurinn, also in Reykjavik.
