Darkend PR3 best

With “Spiritual Resonance”, the fourth full-length album from Italian Extreme Rituallers DARKEND, set for release on the 13th September, Dark Essence Records have today debuted a track from the album in both single and video format.

The track that has been chosen as a first taste of what fans can expect from the album is “With Everburning Sulphur Unconsumed”, which features guest vocals from WARDRUNA’s Lindy-Fay Hella, and the video, by vocalist Animae,  can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/OPht1dQl-_M

The single itself is available to download or stream at https://darkessencerecords.fanlink.to/Darkend_With-Everburning-Sulphur-Unconsumed

According to the band, “Spiritual Resonance” is the most mystical and ritualistic album that DARKEND has made to date . Everything having been cathartically planned to take the listener through an esoteric journey.  As Animæ says “These are paths to my world beyond. Carrying the seeds of change”.

With original artwork by Jean Delville, which has been re-worked by Animæ, tracklisting for “Spiritual Resonance” is as follows:

  1. The Three Ghouls Buried At Golgotha
  2. Scorpio Astraea High Coronation
  3. With Everburning Sulphur Unconsumed
  4. Vessel Underneath
  5. Hereafter, Somewhere
  6. The Seven Spectres Haunting Gethsemane  Darkend AlbumArt PR

DARKEND was formed in 2006 by drummer, and only remaining original member, Valentz,  who describes the fledgling band as “young guys wanting to let our energy out.  And black metal was the only way –  the left hand path we all aimed for”.  Having undergone the inevitable round of member changes, Valentz has today found the ideal lineup of  like-minded spirits with Animæ on Vocals, Antarktica on Grand Piano/Ambience, Ashes and  Nothingness on Lead Guitars, and Vinterskog on Bass.

Together they create music that is best described as Extreme Ritual Art.  “Arcane symphonies exalting ancient ceremonial chants lost in nocturnal remembrances, sulphur riffs engraved on black metal patterns and progressive freedom.  Lying at  the border between magic and spirituality, where cults and rituals can wander free in the wisdom of infinity, at the crossroads between life and death. Swallowed by the energy of the ceremony, engulfed by the dense smoke of incense, for DARKEND there’s no difference between good and evil, dream and reality”.

“Spiritual Resonance” will be released in CD and Digital formats, as well as in a Limited Edition vinyl version with alternative cover art.

“Spiritual Resonance”  is now available to pre-order from:

Madder Mortem New PR

With seven full-length albums under their belts, Alternative Metallers MADDER MORTEM intend to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their 1999 debut full-length album “Mercury” in style.    Not only will there be  a show at the Parkteateret in Oslo, Norway on the 7th September, but,  Dark Essence Records are also planning to re-release “Mercury” with some bonus material, more info on which will be coming soon.

The show will be extra special and include visual effects by  the multi-media artist and long-time collaborator, and Dark Essence label-mate, COSTIN CHIORIEANU.  And, In true MADDER MORTEM style,  the band very much want their legion of friends, fans,  family and past members to be very much a part of the fun.

As  the Madders themselves explain:

In 1999, we released our first album «Mercury» on Misanthropy Records. We were kids given the opportunity to fulfil our dreams, and getting to do it on such an outstanding label was awe-inspiring. This record kicked off the journey we’re still on, and we’re still immensely proud of it. We’ve evolved and changed through the years, band members have come and gone, and the Madder family has been growing, but the Madder marrow has remained intact. Through our crowdfunding campaign last year, we got to feel the full strength of our community, and now we’d like to celebrate the anniversary and re-release of «Mercury» together with you all. 

 We’ve planned a very special night for you. We are bringing the former members of Madder Mortem back to the stage, to share the different eras with you all, as well as some surprise guests. We’ve chosen a set list that includes some fan favourites and some very rarely heard songs, as well as some of the bonus tracks from the re-release. The outstanding Costin Chioreanu is creating original paintings for songs from the set, and the filmed creation of those paintings will add a stunning visual element to the show. Costin will also exhibit his original paintings at the show, to give you a close look at his visual interpretation of the Madder music, and there might be more surprises along the way.

 But even with all these amazing elements, what we are looking forward to the most, is to celebrate our long history together with you. We’re still going strong, 20 years in, without compromise and without losing our passion. We know who we are and where we belong, and even though what we make is often dark, this will be a joyful night, a gathering of family and friends to share our love for the music. Come and join us for the celebration!

 Tickets for the Anniversary show are available from https://www.ticketmaster.no/event/612291 and further information can be found on the Facebook Event at https://business.facebook.com/events/388578165086331/

helheim2019pr2

HELHEIM, whose recently released album “Rignir” has been receiving plaudits from fans and reviewers alike, have just released a video for the title track.  The video, by Romanian multi-media artist Costin Chioreanu can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/5MiD3pgnW-4


A
The album itself, whose title “Rignir” means rain, draws its inspiration from the weather in HELHEIM’s home town of Bergen, notorious for its high rainfall, and, once again the band  has turned to their Norse heritage when writing the poems that form the lyrics for  the album,  using the ljóðaháttr, an Old Norse alliterative verse form used largely in the Eddas.

Regarding the video for “Rignir” and the band’s cooperation with Chioreanu, HELHEIM’s V’gandr had this to say:

Collaborating with Costin has been an absolute honour and pleasure. The way he interpreted the song is nothing short of perfection and we tip our hats to the gentleman. He used our audio and lyrical canvas to paint the emotions we were trying to create. The circle is complete.

Chioreanu, who has a long history of working with Dark Essence Records, and their sister-label Karisma Records, spoke about what it was like to work with HELHEIM, a band he had long-admired:

I first discovered Helheim in the late 90’s after I found a bootleg cassette copy of their “Av norrøn ætt” album on the black market  in post-communist Romania. Their music has been around me since then and I’ve always been an admirer of how they have evolved.  After more than 20 years we finally met in Bucharest (coincidentally the same city where I first came across their music) to film a video, and we had such an amazing time doing it.  

I would also like to say that my best videos and artworks are, strangely or not, those which I make for musicians who are true to themselves and enmesh perfectly with their work. Then, the vibe brought by our collaboration is warm and friendly. It’s as if the Universe wants to salute their dedication through my work, and such is the case with this music video, when everything in the making process was so magic al that I felt the work was creating itself. 

Having just completed a European tour, upcoming live appearances for HELHEIM are as follows:

01 Jun:  John Dee, Oslo, Norway (with VULTURE INDUSTRIES & MADDER MORTEM)
16 Aug: Flytten, Haugesund, Norway (with SLEGEST & ACÂRASH)
09 Nov: Unholy Congregation Pt II, De Qubus, Oudenaarde, Belgium

“Rignir” is available in CD, Blue Vinyl (limited to 500 copies), and Digital formats, from all the usual retailers and streaming services as well as directly from Dark Essence Records at the following:

Seigmen 1994 PR

Karisma Records are set to release the five classic albums from Alternative Rockers SEIGMEN, who this week will be celebrating their 30th Anniversary by playing four special one-off concerts at Bergen’s legendary Hulen venue.

The five albums in question – “Pluto” (1992), “Ameneon” (1993), “Total” (1994), “Metropolis” (1995) and “Radiowaves” (1997),  have been remastered, and will appear in vinyl and CD formats, with “Total”, “Metropolis” and “Radiowaves” having been expanded to double LP versions containing bonus tracks of selected B-sides.

It will be the first time that any of the albums have be released on vinyl, and a very limited edition collectors vinyl box set will also be available, which will contain bonus material.   More information about the releases will be announced during the Summer.

Hulen, Northern Europe’s oldest rock venue, is itself celebrating its 50th anniversary,  so it is fitting that it should host these very special SEIGMEN concerts,  which will replicate four different concerts from the ’90s.

The concerts taking place are as follows:

Wed 29 May: “Ameneon” release concert of April 1993
Thu 30 May: “Total” release concert of October 1994
Fri 31 May: “Metropolis” release concert of October 1995
Sat 01 June: “Radiowaves” release concert of September 1997

Afterlife Romance PR

Fans of Dark Essence Records will be familiar with the name of Romanian artist COSTIN CHIOREANU whose artwork has frequently been used by both the label and its artists, but it may come as news  to some that Chioreanu is himself a musician, and that he has joined forces with the Greek singer SOFIA SARRI to release their debut album “Afterlife Romance”.  An album which, needless to say, Dark Essence Records was quick to snap up.

Through his art, Chioreanu has explored various corners of the musical underground, ranging  from melodic crust punk to black metal to avant-garde. Whilst sometimes using his vocals to convey strange torments, his main tool has always been the guitar, making use of a wide range of effects to create never-before heard  sounds. He has collaborated with the likes of Rune Eriksen of MAYHEM, AURA NOIR and EARTH ELECTRIC, who he cites as a huge inspiration, and his solo projects have shown a marked  leaning towards the magical, atmospheric side,  interwoven with waves of light and darkness, which have led to collaborations with the likes of  DAVID TIBET and ATTILA CSIHAR.

The unearthly way in which SOFIA SARRI builds her vocals owe a lot to the Island of Crete, from whence she hails.  Its  vivid blue seas, rough mountains and cedar forests have played a crucial

role in creating her unearthly vocal style.  Like Choireanu, Sarri  has also shown a penchant for metal and avant-garde, but the breadth her artistic vision and talent means that she has never had to remain wedded to any one particular style.  She has ranged far and wide, recording with artists  associated with free jazz, improvisation and polyphonic choirs before beginning a solo career with her 2017 album “Euphoria” which revealed urban ambient thrills and a remarkable fragility from which she would escape with wild abandon when least expected.

So what exactly are we to expect from a collaboration between a singer whose vocals sound as if she could have come from another dimension, and a multi media artist who is a devotee of avant-garde and whose work has been used by bands such as AT THE GATES, GHOST, SIGH and VULTURE INDUSTRIES to name but a few?  Well, “unusual” is the first word that springs to mind, and, without giving too much away, “Afterlife Romance” has been cleverly  crafted to mimic a Lo-fi production that makes use of the tension and the eeriness of horror movie soundtracks of the ’70s or ’80s and which, carried by the listener’s nostalgia-based imagination, takes us to a place somewhere between a  cult peculiarity and a romantic enchanted experiment.

Chioreanu and Sarri had this to say about their work together on “Afterlife Romance”:

COSTIN CHIOREANU

“Afterlife Romance” is the album in which all the musical and conceptual experiences I have so far built came together, and I am beyond excited with the result.  However, without Sofia’s gorgeous vocals and her fabulous talent in arranging lyrics and metrics,  the result would have been just half of what you will hear. Since I started working with her, and with engineer and producer George Bokos, a new, amazing dimension of magic opened in my life. The final result of our collaboration is very consistent and coherent on all levels, yet extremely complex in terms of musical approach.

The musical fluidity and the overall metamorphosis which describe “Afterlife Romance” bring up a couple of issues when it comes to the genre inclusion of this piece, and so I thought finding a pretty open-minded label for this record would be pretty difficult nowadays. But thanks to the almighty Universe, Dark Essence Records exists and keeps the flame alive in terms of believing in, and doing what it takes to produce music that doesn’t necessarily fit in with any pre-conceived genre definition. I am extremely happy that we found the best home for us, and I know we all aim for the same goal, which is solid music made to stand the test of time.

SOFIA SARRI

When Costin invited me to sing on the album I tried to plunge deep into the eerie and complex world he had created.  I attempted to embody the storyline’s characters with my voice and tried to narrate it with my lyrics as close to what Costin had imagined all this as possible. Instead of just doing some guest vocals I ended up co-composing and contributing my personal input in order to make an album that adequately represents both of our perspectives in music and art. Writing music is always a mind blowing experience for me, especially when two souls manage to vibrate in synch in different parts of our little planet while floating in this vast universe.

We had an amazing time during the entire process, while exchanging ideas and working on the material, and of course during the actual recordings at Grindhouse Studios in Athens,  and it is with great excitement that we are finally ready to present this album to the world thanks to Dark Essence Records. Being a fan of the Norwegian avant-garde/metal/dark music scene since a very tender age, I am more than thrilled to be part of the roster of a label that nourishes and represents this kind of sound. Till October then!

To complement the music itself, Chioreanu will create different illustrations for each song on “Afterlife Romance”,  and these will form part of the accompanying booklet. The original artwork itself will appear at exhibitions in various historical locations, art galleries and music festivals during 2019 and 2020.

Full details of the album and exhibitions will be available in the run-up to the release of “Afterlife Romance”, which is expected to be in October of this year.

Vulture Industries Deeper ArtworkPR

Norway’s VULTURE INDUSTRIES are set to release a new single, titled “Deeper”, On Dark Essence Records.   A video for the single, by long-time Romanian artist and long-time collaborator Costin Choireanu, can be seen below and at https://youtu.be/zSz3BIUrjT4


A
“Deeper” tells the story of man’s insatiable greed for more, as symbolised by the miners digging all the way to Hell.  Starting out with a haunting trumpet solo, the track mixes a Spaghetti Western vibe with the rhythmic and melodic drive of a large-scale rock opus. Musically “Deeper» nods in the direction of such diverse acts as Ennio Morricone, Type O Negative, The Beatles and Lee Hazlewood, but at the same time there is also a solid dose of rock and metal, in the signature style of VULTURE INDUSTRIES.

Vulture Industries PR

VULTURE INDUSTRIES frontman, Bjørnar E. Nilsen had this to say about the origins of the song:

It was one of those scorching summer days of 2018. The parched grass had turned the fields the colour of old paper, and the sun, at its zenith, was mercilessly searing our skin. Thirsty, hungry, and with tongues swelling, we had just missed the ferry crossing and could taste our hopes turn to ashes in our mouths. Trying to remain calm, but steadily feeling the building pressure of desperation, as a boiler ready to blow, we waited in line. Then suddenly the one year old in the back seat broke the silence chanting AHUM, AHUM, AHUM, AHUM! Overcome by what felt like divine inspiration but might very well have been sent from the depths of Hell, I started drumming on the dashboard. DUM, DADADUM, DADADUM, DADADUMDADUMDADUM.”

Printed on Limited Edition 7″ green vinyl to coincide with the Strange Rain tour with HELHEIM, MADDER MORTEM and CAELESTIA, which kicks off  on the 25th April, “Deeper” will be out on Digital platforms on the 23rd of April.  Strictly limited to 500 copies, the 7″ also features the a live performance of  “The Benevolent Pawn”  recorded at USF in Bergen.

“Deeper” is now available to purchase from:
