Speaking of releases;

OUT NOW!!!

MARE – Ebony Tower CD/LP
-The debut magnum opus album from MARE!

After 8 years in the making its finally ready, well worth the wait, as you can read here;

Mare
”Ebony Tower”
Terratur Possessions (2018)
6/6
Terratur’s nightmare of an album has surely taken its toll. “Ebony Tower” will finally be released after years of waiting. The rest of the world may not care, but to us who dwell in the underground…, now is the time! Some 25 years after “De Mysteriis dom. Sathanas”, an album that is a worthy successor is made. Others have tried, others have failed and there has always been something missing. Tempo, the riffs, the vocals, the sound but more than anything the atmosphere has failed. I will not conclude if this is better than the said album or not, but I will still claim that this work is the closest a band has come to the atmosphere of “De Mysteriiis…”. Shouting, chanting and grim vocals, where I must notify how the double vocals on “Labyrinth Of Dying Stars” are almighty. There are strong melodies that leave enough space for bass and drums. This masterpiece does also contain some well placed keyboard sections that underline the atmosphere in those parts, like four minutes into “Blood Across The Firmament”.
Other elements are in example timpani and of course the outro which we will return to later on. The right tempo is important when you set the mood, and I experience that Mare has thought this through. One track from the said Mayhem album that connects with with the tempo of “Ebony Tower” is “Life Eternal” and its hypnotic rhythm. It’s fast enough, yet not so slow that it turns into doom. It’s intense all the time in the same way medium tempo black metal can be more intense than Marduk at full force. “The Fountains Of Darkness” starts in fast tempo before it glides over to mighty melodylines in the said perfect tempo that drives the album further. The tempo and the airy production create a feeling of cathedral and mighty rooms.
Finally there’s a release that can stand next to albums like the mentioned “De Mysteriis dom. Sathanas”, like “Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice”, like”A Blaze In The Northern Sky”, like”Salvation” and that rises to the top of the tower. Religious, cathedral, yes, but don’t let that fool you because it smells like corpses and burnt churches from a long distance. “Ebony Tower” has grown bigger and stronger and into Lamia Vox’ perfect closure in the shape of a beyond beautiful outro. “Ebony Tower” is 45 minutes that give life meaning again and again. Are you able to see how they build cathedrals, can you see cathedrals torn apart, can you see the tower encircled by darkness?

CORNIGR – Shroud of Satan/Death Trimorph 7″EP
-Cornigr is long since dead but before we close the casket, here’s two alternate versions of songs that later ended up on Relics of Inner War. These versions are rawer, more rabid and wild and stand very well on their own, hence this final EP that had remained unreleased for 9 years. The end is now complete.

MANII – Sinnets Irrganger CD/12″MLP
-When Manes morphed into something more than what once was, something was stirring beneath. After some time the two originators of the project, Cernunnus and Sargatanas, wanted to recede and devolve back into the shadows of Trondheim. This retreat into darkness bred something dismal – Manii.
Discomforting, haunting and ethereal Black Metal, Manii holds the spirit of the early 90s, yet with that extra unintelligible facet that made Manes into the band most of us know and worship.
Manii harnesses layers and levels, which musically invoke a level of malaise that isn’t easy to portray. An unappeasable expression of the desperation of existence, and the ever reaching depth of the scorn of self…
12″MLP and CD(Incl. Skuggeheimen 7″EP as bonus) coming winter 2017/18, released by Terratur Possessions exclusively. Art by B.H.N.Q./Beyond Art, layout by Kontamination Design.

DEVOURING STAR/CAECUS – Split LP
-“Given time, even the strongest bone will succumb and shatter. And in the light of sovereign Death, even gods must submit.

Apostasis is a bastard of Devouring Star & Caecus, a collaboration in obscure Black and Death metal. An unlikely match in adversarialism.

TRACKLIST:
A side:
DS/C – Apostasis
B side:
Devouring Star – A Pale Monument
Caecus – Ascend to the Void
