Łabandzi Śpiew Wonderful. Can't stop listening to those pitch black chantings. Favorite track: Sky/Insignificance.

Semper Adamas Walking around meadows and woods, in the gloomy half-light, you could not see a path that leads toward something safe, toward a light that penetrates through the leaves, but it is dull and distant, daughter of a heat lost in the plots that the wind draws .
You just have to stop, cover your shoulders and hear the sad song of a priestess invoking the descent of darkness on earth. Without even realizing the time, you took already your last breath. Favorite track: Sky/Insignificance.

Dustfan Shout out to Eve, Michael and Matthew for having this show up in my feed. Dead Can Dance is an apt comparison. Much like Lisa Gerrard the vocals here serve as another instrument in the aural soundscapes rather than as a narrator. Transportive and meditative. Favorite track: Morpheus.

Michael Keerdo-Dawson One of the most original albums I've ever heard and certainly one of the best of 2016 so far just for it's pure audacity. It is the musical equivalent of a slow crawl into into a haunted woods, on an uncertain path to where pure darkness lies; you cannot even see your own hand in front of your face -the light is so absent. An ancient ritual is about to take place and your ears bare witness to the beauty and the menace. Favorite track: Long away.

Eve McGivern Whoah--stop what you're doing and download this now. I'm serious. Dead Can Dance meets Chelsea Wolfe, easily a blend not only of the sounds, but of the two stunning female vocalists. Alternatively angelic and demonic, worshipful and profane, but always in a stunning soundscape both ancient and modern. Highly recommended. Chills. Favorite track: Long away.
