Tvoj je hram u srcu mom’, debut studio album of Endarken! A Massive black metal production for the fans of the genre. (Stream , Artwork & Info)

You settled in the depths of my heart. I did not invite You, I did not know You, at least not the way I know You now. It was something that happened naturally, without any influence, something pure.

I still remember the first time I saw Your face, that scene shaped my life. I stepped in Your footprint, I knew I belong there even though I was child… Your presence was growing year after year… Your temple is in my heart, You are my heart, You are the pulse of life.

Tvoj je hram u srcu mom“ is the envoy of darkness, the bearer of the black flame, a six odes to the omnipresent indestructible force which is the source of life and death. This album is an ode to Him, a gloomy sound pervaded with fiery melodies – anything that lovers of black metal can wish for.

History

Talbot, the heaviest duo on Earth (and beyond), has been conquering the world actively since 2008.

With Magnus Andre on bass guitar, synths, vocals and Eugene Mikhaylov on drums & vocals, this duo from Estonia’s capital Tallinn, has created a unique sound of their own – massive, atmospheric and noisy with a nice amount of psychedelia on top of it.

Band has previously released an EP “Tundra” in 2008 and album “EOS” (2010). “EOS” was nominated for the Best Metal album of 2010 at the Estonian Music Awards.

Talbot’s second album “Scaled was released in April 2013 and has already gained a lot of feedback from the listeners and reviewers.

The duo finished their yet another European tour in May and among the other festivals also played at the Roskilde Festival 2013 (DK) and Rock The Beach 2013 (FI).

“Talbot is now a force to be reckoned with in the realm of extreme music.” Scaled is a brilliant album and one that will be called classic in the years to come. eats.” (The Sludgelord)

“All six tracks on Scaled offer excellent listening and varying dynamics and I can not recommend it enough. I expect to hear from the doom duo and if you’re into something different do not hesitate.” (Phil Johnston / Echoes and Dust)

“Back at Von Krahl, Talbot has whipped up a thunderous sound. The drum kit took up half the stage, behind them sitting heavily tattooed, utterly solid percussionist Jarmo Nuutre, who beat his instruments within an inch of their lives with pummelling brutality and an (John Rogers / The Line Of Trance), and a double vocal played a melodic rock vocal off against Nuutre’s guttural doom-metal roar. Best Fit)

“Talbot was awesome. Besides the guys looked exactly like the guys who drink beer in the shower, which is awesome.” (Juuso Vermasheinä / Flockified)

History
Inkvisitor is a thrash metal band originating from Jyväskylä, Finland. The band was formed in August 2012 by Jesse Kämäräinen and Lauri Huttunen after Jesse posted an add about forming a band. Together they agreed that thrash metal would be the genre and the two managed to form Inkvisitor’s first line-up with two additional musicians. The line-up was short-lived and quickly replaced by Petteri Milan on drums and Petteri Huikkonen on bass. Aapo Vuori was last to join the band during spring 2013.

The band spent the summer composing and rehearsing new songs and in Fall performed their first live shows. In December 2013 the band entered to studio to record their first release, Delirious Tales EP. The EP was released in April 2014 and was met with positive reviews and receiption. For example the Finnish metal magazine Inferno picked the EP as the Best of Month in May. The band toured in May and in summer 2014 started to write and rehearse new material. During Fall 2014 the band will tour and then enter the studio to record their first full length album.

The band toured in May and in summer 2014 started to write and rehearse new material. During Fall 2014 the band completed tour in Finland dubbed Mobile Shredding Unit Tour and it consisted of 10 gigs.

After the tour bassist Petteri Huikkonen informed that he’ll be pursuing other activities than music and therefore quits the band. He cited lack of time to be the main reason for his decision. The band started to look for an replacement.

In December 2014 the band won competition organized by Tuska Open Air Metal Festival to play with Lost Society at Tavastia, Helsinki and completed the year by playing at Klubi, Tampere with total of 24 shows in 2014. After a christmas break in January 2015 the band starts to record it’s debut album named Doctrine of Damnation and completes the recordings in February. The album will be released 17.8.2015 and features ten new songs. Due the lack of bassist, Jesse’s old friend Pekka Löhönen plays the bass on the record. Lauri’s and Petteri’s old friend Ville Grekula fills in for the live shows.

Doctrine of Damnation was released to a positive reception both domestically and world wide. The band toured actively throughout the year and released two music videos for the songs Damnation and Hellbound for Carnal Knowledge. In November 2015 Petteri was fired from the band due to his lack of motivation. He was instantly replaced by Tino Jäntti.

The band also immediately started to write new material for their second full length album. It was decided early on that the album would be a concept album revolving around a single storyline. In Spring 2016 the band entered the studio to record two songs from that album to be released as singles. First single Dark Arts of Sanguine Rituals was released in May 2016 with a music video.

Inkvisitor was later confirmed to co-headline Tuska Festival’s new project Tuska on Wheels -tour with Block Buster. After the tour Aapo informed that his interest in heavy metal and Inkvisitor had diminished and that he would depart from the band. The band started immediately to look for a new frontman.

While looking for a new vocalist the band completed writing all the material for the second album and demoed instrumental versions. In December 2016 Lauri informed that his motivation to tour and be in an active band had dropped. He would still play on the record. Luckily Jesse already had a guy in his mind, he called immediately to his long time friend Joonas Kolehmainen to fill in and Joonas answered the call. In February 2017 Markus contacted the band and wished to join. He and Jesse held a demo session and after the session it was a no-brainer. Markus joined the band officially in March.

In April 2017 the band entered Electric Fox Studios with Tuomas Kokko engineering. All drum parts were recorded and guitars, bass & vocals recorded for two songs. One of the songs Second Sacrament was sent to Nino Laurenne of Sonic Pump Studios for mixing and later to Virtalähde Mastering to be mastered. A music video was also shot in April. The song was released as single in May 2017. Rest of the recordings were completed by October 2017.

During Autumn 2017 the band completed it’s line-up permanently. Sakari Soisalo joined on bass and Mikko Saviranta took over the lead guitar duties. With the album complete, the band started to work on the release. During January the band filmed a music video to be released later in 2018. After planning, the release date was set on 20th of April 2018. In March 2018 filmed another music video and 2nd single “Mindslaver” from the album was released.

Stream RUST’s debut album ‘Urstoff’

RUST founded by the original members of October Rust, a band which had split-up several years before due to the lack of a singer and started rehearsing again in 2015, eventually employing Jotun as their new stable vocalist.

 

A magical, evocative and enchanting work, as well as tragic, apocalyptic, cruel, painful, fatal, nefarious, violent and deadly … A unique and disenchanted vision of extreme music. A dazzling journey, almost blinding and inadmissible, leading to the discovery of a majestic and impressive record, whose roots are inspired by the first OPETH, SHINING and a post-KATATONIA taste.

However, this record has an ultra-personal vision, open and unique that makes RUST’s universe an unmatched experience.

CHAINBREÄKER – Wasteland City

The four-piece from Linz surprised many of the people present, because despite their youthful age, were able to show high – class playing.

Classic, strong 80s Thrash / Speed Metal could be heard in the “Rockhouse” and tackled many a decent grin in the face.

Even visually, the four appeared as directly from the 80s – tight pants, bullet belts and white sneakers

CHAINBREÄKER have internalized the straighten thrash not only musically but also visually.
