Virium’s side project. Atmospheric black and post black metal from Catalonia, highly influenced by its land, the Mediterranean Sea and its forests. Introspection, solitude, mysticism, nature, esotericism… A very worked first album at all levels.
Lóstregos - Onde Calan Os Corazóns, Ruxen As Pedras (LP)
Magnificent pagan black metal with all the power of Galicia in their songs. Undoubtedly, one of the best works of 2021. Eclectic, and with surprising details that prove the bravery of Lóstregos when they writing material. A feat for fans of Kampfar, Arkcanum, or early Borknagar.
12” black vinyl 140gr with insert.

Do you remember this cover? There is only one word that can define what “Absence Spells Beyond” meant in the Spanish black metal scene in general and the symphonic one in particular: mythic. Reissue on CD with “Absence Spells Beyond...” and their first album “Trapped in the Depths of Eve...” as bonus. Dimmu Borgir were from Barcelona?! Wonderful.
Excellent second album by the Irish band. They take elements form black, death, doom, and their traditional music to portray a wide variety of atmospheres and moods. Guttural growls are used in contrast with harmonious choral sections and ‘sean-nós’ vocals. Irish melodies and time signatures are incorporated with aggressive metallic and progressive elements. This distinctive approach to metal music coupled with lyrics sung entirely in Gaelige truly makes Corr Mhóna a one of a kind band.
The spirit of the Basque forests resides in Nakkiga. Fourth album by this veteran band with all their pagan fury and melodic melancholy. A special band, with pure and true feelings. See for yourself how lethal can nature be.
