Promotions: Extreme Metal
“By way of Quebec comes a unique blend of Eastern European-inspired black metal and Bulgarian folk music, presented in the form of Цар Стангра (TSAR STANGRA). Driven by complex songs, exotic rhythms, and multiple orchestrations, the music is as diverse and refined as the culture in which it represents.
With the impending release of their debut album Небесният ковач (Celestial Forger), set to drop on May 26th, the band has taken great care to deliver a mosaic of melodic music that blends mysticism with uncommon elements found in today’s pagan/folk black metal scene. Inspired by the expertise of such legends as Negură Bunget, Drudkh, Rotting Christ, and Nokturnal Mortum, each and every song is then localized utilizing typical Bulgarian rhythms and harmonies.” – from original promo
“BESTIAL DEFORM not stands alone and is not trying to become a true icon in extreme music, and all the way to the selected group – only them, it is unique, isolated and there is no place for anyone. The Many Faces of the death machine that sweeps away everything in its path, and all! Battering ram, punching gates of consciousness! Catapult that carry the walls, exposing the flesh of cities and sensual creatures! Sadist, savoring of convulsions and agony.” – from original promo
“Blackened noise avant-chaos from the Norwegian maestros – the kind of insane creation you come to expect from this duo – and a fine and fitting end to the series.” – from original promo
“Speak Not of the Laudanum Quandary is a harrowing, yet distinctly human odyssey through the absurdities and tragedies of British imperialism, voiced in an appropriately deranged sprechgesang by the band’s creative director, Alasdair Dunn.” – from original promo
