The band released this statement; “When our true essence manages to thaw the ice walls of the soul, we can be ourselves and face the challenge of controlling our own life, without the heavy burdens imposed by society or the rigid standards of upbringing. That also happens on a social scale, and the people also begin to understand where they want to go and where they come from. “Defrosting” invites the listener to defrost the soul and look towards our roots to find a path in the future.”

Pyrogenesis”, the fourth album by the Tyrolean exception black metallers ASPHAGOR, has been in the stores since 10 March. These 11 songs and a playing time of over 60 minutes are probably the highlight of the quintet’s work so far.
Now the band has released an solid video clip for the album’s title track and comments this as follows:
M. Zanesco: “Pyrogenesis” is a song that centers around the idea that great power and enlightenment can arise from a spark of inspiration born from flame. The lyrics describe the journey towards this power and the potential consequences that come with it, emphasizing the destructive potential of this force while acknowledging its transformative and creative capabilities.
Hybreos: As an ode to Prometheus, we tried to create an amalgamation of Old School Death Metal with our home base of Black Metal, with a thrashy connotation. Like every track on the album this one as well has its unique approach, guiding through densely packed arrangements toward the final conclusion in a harmonic riffage. Enjoy!
The album is available on CD, as a double LP in gatefold and as a limited DigiPak in a limited BoxSet. In May you will have the chance to see the band together with The Spirit on the Dark Fortress Farewell Tour, see the dates below.

Connecticut, US melodic death / doom metal band FIRES IN THE DISTANCE have today shared their new single and an accompanying visualizer, Idiopathic Despair. Idiopathic Despair is the third track to be taken from FIRES IN THE DISTANCE‘s upcoming second album, Air Not Meant For Us, and is one of the sophomore album’s more introspective tracks. Air Not Meant For Us due for release on April 28 via Prosthetic Records.
Speaking on the single release Yegor Savonin (composition, guitars, programming, lyrics) comments: “Idiopathic Despair is one of the most powerful and sinister tracks from Air Not Meant For Us, and also serves as the record’s epilogue. As a deeply personal segment, the song covers introspection into some of the most brutal and debilitating aspects of living with chronic depression, and depicts interior collisions with something that cannot always be expected or controlled.”
On their second album, FIRES IN THE DISTANCE further expand on their musical foundations of wistful melodicism, crushingly heavy guitar work and intricate atmospherics. Across Air Not Meant For Us’ six tracks, FIRES IN THE DISTANCE tie together intensely personal ruminations on mental health and themes of existentialism in the form of mortality salience, without losing sight of the importance of perseverance.
Teaming up with Salt Lake City producer Randy Slaugh, FIRES IN THE DISTANCE’s chief songwriter Yegor Savonin (composition, guitars, programming, lyrics) sought to reach even greater dynamics within the band’s core sound of melodic death and doom metal. With live orchestration in the form of violas, violins, cellos, as well as piano work, proving to be an incredibly fruitful collaborative process for both band and producer.
Air Not Meant For Us marks the first time the band have recorded with new drummer, Jordan Rippe, who delivers his own wide range of ornate work and feeling to the group’s established sound. Whilst drums for the album were recorded at the historic Power Station New England, the rest of the instruments were tracked at Studio Wormwood in North Carolina with returning producer, Dave Kaminsky, who handled recording and mixing in both studios.
In addition to the collaboration with Randy Slaugh, the album also features a guest appearance from Burial in the Sky guitarist James Tomedi on instrumental track Adrift, Beneath the Listless Waves, who’s deft fretwork adds an additional layer of dynamic sheen.
Kristian Grimaldi’s thunderous vocal delivery compliments the album’s composition strongly and projects the songs to a greater level of formidability. The record is rounded out by Craig Breitsprecher’s complex and serpentine bass work which weave throughout the LP with an imperative sense of cohesion.
Seeking to retain aesthetic continuity, FIRES IN THE DISTANCE once again reached out to Caelan Stokkermans for the album’s art and layout, which masterfully conveys Air Not Meant For Us’ emotional core. With a runtime of 51 minutes across six songs, FIRES IN THE DISTANCE’s sophomore effort is a melodic doom and death metal odyssey in both artistic vision and sound.
Air Not Meant For Us tracklist: 1. Harbingers 2. Wisdom of the Falling Leaves 3. Crumbling Pillars of a Tranquil Mind 4. Adrift, Beneath the Listless Waves 5. Psalm of the Merciless 6. Idiopathic Despair
FIRES IN THE DISTANCE is: Yegor Savonin – composition, guitars, programming, lyrics Craig Breitsprecher – bass, vocals Kristian Grimaldi – guitars, vocals Jordan Rippe – drums
Finnish dark metal band KUOLEMAN GALLERIA has released their fourth full length album “Pedon synty”. As this beast borns the first cry echoes on the video of the opening track of the album.
The band’s singer Kimmo Jankkari tells: “Pedon synty (The Birth Of The Beast) carries the listener towards the altar of inner chaos and starts a chain of events that leads you into the core of darkness and back. The song is a melodic but heavy piece that goes forward determinedly and gives you a ride to your darkest innerself. It’s time for the beast to be born.”
