FOPAW/ELEFANT - TUUUT (10")
FOPAW: Future Old People Are Wizards, sometimes also shortened to FOPAW, is a band from Ghent with Stijn Vanmarsenille (Drums Are For Parades, Elefant) on guitar and vocals. Nele De Gussem (Mayas Moving Castle) takes on the bass, but instead of going for the classic bass guitar, the bass sounds are created by some brutal synths. Responsibility for the drums lies with Sylvester Vanborm (Wallace Vanborn). Elefant: you might find yourself at Dante's inferno though you're at a gig you might not feel at ease you might smile from ear to ear you might think this behaviour is too much and ridiculous you might hear a discord you might feel something you like you might see 4 figures cut some sort of a figure, go figure you might as well be hanged for a sheep as for a lamb you might love you might hate Elefant does not live in boxes cardboard and the like.

GNAW THEIR TONGUES - PER FLAGELLUM SANGUEMQUE...(10")
Brutally cathartic, impossibly suffocating... doom and noise with a seriously terrifying cinematic edge. ConSouling Sounds are proud to present this 2x10" vinyl re-issue of the 2011 album by Gnaw Their Tongues, originally unleashed into the world of the living by Crucial Blast. Finding itself among an extensive discography of pitch black ritual noise chaos, 'Per Flagellum Sanguemque, Tenebras Veneramus' is among some of Gnaw Their Tongues' most affecting work - an apex of dramatic, nightmarish violence where the doomed distortion and clattering percussion intermingle with alien string squeals and hopeless, depraved shrieks.

JARBOE/FATHER MURPHY - SPLIT (10")
For this amazing collaborative EP, American artist and performer Jarboe (Swans) collaborates with the Italian occult duo Father Murphy. With the latter being from Italy, the Roman catholic church was ever present, together with the catholic sense of guilt. Father Murphy wants to make that guilt audible, with them digging deep into occultism and eroticism. Their live shows are known for their intensity, treading a narrow line between a rite and an artistic performance. Their craft matches perfectly with Jarboes oeuvre. Jarboes known for her bold experimentations and melodic diverse expressions. Throughout her life Jarboe has explored the rebuilding and reinventing of identity and the elemental structures of personae. With these exceptional artists meeting up you can be sure this will conjure an extraordinary album that haunts and hurts, but most definitely will leave you longing for more. The album has been expertly designed by the very talented Dehn Sora, beautifully capturing the essence of the record. For fans of: Swans, Neurosis, Diamanda Galas, Stephen OMalley, Akron/Family.

30.000 MONKIES - I ATE MYSELF TO GROW TWICE AS BIG
Limited to 100 copies numbered for RSD! After having released two incredible EPs and building up quite the live reputation, Belgium's 30,000 Monkies finally are ready to storm into the limelight with their debut full album I Ate Myself to Grow Twice as Big. Their very particular nonsensical sense of humor is a perfect companion to their music: absurdly, yet effortlessly, blending sludge, doom and solid riffing with noise and psychedelic drones, the band takes you to all kinds of places all at once. 30,000 Monkies is truly one of the most exciting young bands we heard in a long time. The band has been on our radar for quite a while now, and were really pleased to be able to present this monstrous sounding beast of an album. As the illegitimate child of a night full of debauchery between Sleep, The Melvins, Melt Banana, Harvey Milk, McLusky, Lightning Bolt and even Merzbow, the band most certainly ticks all the right boxes. Be prepared for this tasty feast!

A-SUN AMISSA - THE GATHERER
Formed in 2011 by Richard Knox, the instrumental music collective A-Sun Amissa has released a few phenomenal albums on Knoxs own Gizeh label. We couldn't be more happy A-Sun Amissa wanted to reach out and give "The Gatherer" a home on Consouling Sounds. Their dense drone-like atmospheres, accompanying melodic string and woodwind sections, intertwined with guitars and field recordings are nothing short of amazing. Expanding on their incredible instrumental music, "The Gatherer" also welcomes guest vocals by CHVE (Amenra, Sembler Deah, Kigdom, CHVE, .), adding a vocal layer of atmosphere to the work. "The Gatherer" is a majestic aural tour de force, guaranteed to leave its audience in awe. POINTS OF INTEREST Guest vocals by CHVE (Amenra, Kingdom, Harlowe, ...)

ALKERDEEL - LEDE
Alkerdeel are back for their first full length since 2012's Morinde! It might seem a long time, but the band has been working very hard. This resulted in a couple of split albums that hinted at the direction they were headed, but mostly they used the time to piece together the brand new album Lede. The album is undeniably Alkerdeel: the muddy but yet surprisingly well defined sound is ever present. The direction in which the music evolves did change over time. The doomy sludge drone monster of before made way for a more direct and head-on approach. These Belgians are not beating around the bush this time: they will grab you, and drag you along for a relentless journey through their murky uncompromising black metal wasteland. On the artwork of Jeroen Pede: Immediately recognizable among all other releases on Consouling Sounds, are those designed by Jeroen Pede for the band Alkerdeel. Jeroen (Gent, Belgium), himself a band member of Alkerdeel, has held on to a consistent imagery to develop the look of the band. Inspiration comes from graphic imagery, both in a literal and figurative sense, as very linear work of Beardsley, Bosch, and other scatological pictures are used as an inspiration. As such, Jeroen Pede has built up a world of dark yet cheeky imagery engulfing Alkerdeel and adding strength to their message. comes in gatefold sleeve and includes poster.

AMENRA - MASS I
As the Masses amassed, it became clear Amenra was a serious contender within the post/sludge/doom genre. Mass V (Neurot, 2012) highlighted the gravity and sincerity of Amenra's unique vision, as they were heralded to universal acclaim. With this reissue of the long out of print debut album we take a step back, and celebrate the album that started the procession now exactly a decade ago. Mass I, rooted in the (post)hardcore and noise scene, reveals an ambitious outfit that are set to preach their distinctive blurring of genres and musical conventions. The original recordings' brilliance is finally revealed by Billy Anderson's (Eyehategod, Melvins, Neurosis, Swans, .) tremendous remastering of the album. Mass I never sounded this full and powerful. If you want to know what Amenra is all about, start praying with us from the beginning. RIYL: Neurosis, Cult of Luna, Oathbreaker, Hessian.

AMENRA - MASS V
Now Available exclusively through Sonic Rendezvous/Consouling Sounds! Formed in 1999 in the forsaken fields of West-Flanders, Belgium, Amenra has conjured unholy masses and paved their own headstrong way ever since, spreading their vision of a world of unseen mystique that's out of touch with the past, present and future. Amenra's confounding and compelling sound mixes surreal melodies and warped subtleties with churning rhythms, pummelling riffs and crushing dynamics. Having found a home with Neurot Recordings, the group sets ambitions and expectations high for their fourth full-length album Mass V. Their post-modern vision of music, consisting of droning, repetitive chords alternated by gut-wrenching howls, make experienced listeners renounce their definitions of music, perhaps even their whole belief systems. Amenra puts heart and soul into every note, word and image, changing the course of peoples' lives in the process.

B/CHVE/SYNDROME - REWORKS
CHVE Colin H. Van Eeckhout is best known when he is surrounded by kindred spirits, but with CHVE he steps into the limelight all on his own. He crafted his music and transformed it into a unique entity. CHVE solely makes use of a hurdy gurdy and his voice as instruments to dig deep within his own self. Just a man, his thoughts, scars and memories, with his voice and his instrument. SYNDROME Several years ago a primitive form of Syndrome was brought to life as a vehicle for the solo output of Mathieu Vandekerckhove, mostly known for his work with Amenra, Kingdom, Sembler Deah,... For years the self-thought musician learned and studied his craft of songwriting and soundscaping, mainly as a means to self-exploration, meditation and attempts at channelling negative into positive energy. B - "1 MAN vs 4 MACHINES" B is the live Techno project from Bert Libeert. Armed with just two synths and two drum machines B is bringing the rawness and spontaneity of live music back to clubs. His signature sound is an uncompromising mix of hard edged EBM and Old School Techno that still sounds as exciting today as when it first kicked off a musical revolution in the 1980s. THE COLLABORATION They knew each other from back in school and are from the same region in Belgium, but it was the music that finally brought them together. Their collaboration started when B was inspired by the the track "Rasa" by CHVE and "Forever and a day" by syndrome. When Bert heard their intoxicating sounds he immediate was triggered do something with it. Despite the differences between the different artists, they have lots of similarities when it comes to energy, emotions and character. This is why the meditative vibes of CHVE and SYNDROME blend in perfectly with the dark basslines and low pitched beats from B.

BAKER, AIDAN - THERE/NOT THERE
"There / Not There" will be released through Consouling Sounds on the 2nd of October. It combines Baker's interest in minimalistic post-rock and textured ambient noise, the ongs' themselves on this album numbering among the first Baker wrote at the beginning of his career but as yet never properly recorded. Rather than recording all parts himself, as Baker has done with previous albums, and in an effort to give the album more of a band sound and feel, he invited drum and bass contributions respectively from Fiona McKenzie (also of Halma) and Dana Schechter (also of Insect Ark, Bee And Flower, Angels of Light, Swans). Although recording of the tracks began in 2019, given the circumstances of the 2020 pandemic the album was completed via file-sharing and not in person, the tracks assembled and mixed at Baker's Broken Spine Studios in Berlin, Germany. Simon Scott, drummer in Slowdive and also a contributor to Baker's 2012 album "The Spectrum of Distraction" (Robotic Empire), mastered the album.

BARST - THE ENDEAVOR
Taking cue from live renditions, the structure of the album started to present itself early on. It was only a question of arranging it, structuring it, and constantly rebuilding it, before the whole extent of this endeavor started to crystalize. This album -- which is yet again presented as one long trip -- is spectacularly complex and utterly engaging. To record this beast of an album, BARST was blessed with contributions by among others: Niels Brown (Vonnis), Gregory Simons (Vonnis, Arise Fair Sun), Messy Mathi, Mathlovsky (Mathlovsky), Tokyo Oyo, William Lacalmontie (OVTRENOIR) and Mike Armine (Rosetta). Because BARST is always about stunning all the senses, Marlies De Smet from Teer Studio has expertly visualized the Endeavour. Let this gesamtkunstwerk pull you in, and engage in the Endeavour.

CHARNIA - HET LAATSTE LICHT
After the release of Dageraad in 2014, the band didnt exactly sit still. They have started to write on a whole new piece, which would crystalize into Het Laatste Licht. Departing from their post-metal debut, the band has been working on subtler droney and ambient layers of music. Charnia has brought this piece of music as a work in progress on several occasions, perfecting the album every step along the way. The time is finally here to unveil this remarkable piece of music. The music unravels organically, interweaving hauntingly beautiful melodies and soundscapes, aided by the expert musicianship of Jens Debacker (violin) and Innerwoud (double bass). This fragile piece of work, which is reminiscent of the way Godspeed You! Black Emperor or A-Sun Amissa build their music, does not let go of its audience, even after the fierce and harrowing finale has passed.

CHVE - 10910
At the end of 2015, CHVE made quite an impression with his debut solo full album "Rasa". CHVE is best known for his work with Amenra, but the solo work took a different turn both musically and stylistically. Instead of the brute primal force and walls of sound, CHVE's solo work is very introspective and intimistic, making use solely of his voice, a hurdy gurdy and the bodhran. The approach might be very different, but the music is equally devastating and brutally honest. "Rasa" was the studio incarnation of CHVE, produced with the aid of Dehn Sora (Treha Sektori, Sembler Deah, .), but during his many live shows, the music transformed organically in a distinctly different way. To document the transformation from the studio to a live solo CHVE performance, this beautiful new live record is presented. The album captures the music in a truly unique way: it was recorded by one man in one take in an old tram, amidst the busy Saturday city life of Ghent, and was immediately cut to vinyl afterwards. These recordings have been mixed by Aaron Harris (ISIS, Palms, Deftones, Tool, etc.) and have been mastered by Frederik Dejongh at Jerboa Mastering (CHVE, TBHR, Syndrome, etc.) to ensure the most perfect listening experience of this live rendition of "Rasa", augmented with a unique interpretation of Nicos Le Petit Chevalier. For the artwork, CHVE and Tine Guns collaborated in a unique way with visuals of Guns playing a part in the packaging of the album and the music of the CHVE live album playing a part in Guns new film "To Each His Own Mask". Furthermore, Aline Gorsen created relics of CHVEs own flesh, which are also featured in the artwork.

COMMON EIDER, KING EIDER - A WOUND OF EARTH
Birthed around the mid-two thousands in the wake of San Francisco's collapsing psychedelic and art rock scene, and gravitating around the core values and aesthetics of San Francisco's legendary tUMULt and aQuarius reCords strongholds, Common Eider, King Eider is an obscure congregation of veteran San Francisco sound sculptors and unrivaled masters of creation when it comes to realm of the most darkened, immaterial, and cataclysmic sonic architecture that the human mind can fathom. Taking cues from revolutionary and mind-expanding artists like Lustmord, Throbbing Gristle, Wardruna, Dead Can Dance, Halo Manash, Arvo Part, and Sunn O))), through their levitating, soul-shattering, and black hole-sized ritualistic black ambience, Common Eider, King Eider have elevated themselves to the rank of near-mystical figureheads in the realm of modern times dark ambient and drone music.

The duo - consisting of Ren Aquarius and Otto Kokke - are known for their free improvisational music, as is known in the jazz scene, but with a very different output. Flirting with extreme music like metal or even grindcore, their music takes on a dark twist. Their new offering, and debut on Consouling Sounds, "Craters" brings the band into dark and moody territories, adding a bass guitar to the sonic palette. The album sounds organically layered, with Aquariuss ominous percussion paving the way for Kokkes atmospheric sax arrangements, glued together by Maxime Petits bass tones.

ELEFANT - KONARK UNA BONARK
When a band is formed with members of The Van Jets, Future Old People Are Wizards, Drums are for Parades, The Arquettes, and The Antler King, it goes without saying this combination of great musicians of diverse musical backgrounds grabs your attention. Their incredible live performances proved this band is much more than a gimmick. Dressed in white hazmat suits with white chalked faces, these artists look ghoulishly freaky. Their podium presence looks otherworldly, where weirdness is set as the norm -- which is exactly and completely in line with their music. The four guardians of Dante's inferno bring an insane blend of all types of challenging music. Kraut rock, match rock, sludge, pust punk, and noise are shaken up, and presented in insanely groovy way.

FOPAW: Future Old People Are Wizards, sometimes also shortened to FOPAW, is a band from Ghent with Stijn Vanmarsenille (Drums Are For Parades, Elefant) on guitar and vocals. Nele De Gussem (Mayas Moving Castle) takes on the bass, but instead of going for the classic bass guitar, the bass sounds are created by some brutal synths.

FÄR - SALUTE
This Belgian duo borrows on a wide array of genres: from trap and witch house, over to ambient and noise, but presented as deceptively poppy tunes. Their bass-heavy sound, and harrowing vocals are sure to grab you by the throat. Having only been around since 2016, their relentless work ethic and intense live shows already got them to open for acts such as ABRA (US, Awful Records) & Tropic Of Cancer (US). FÄR has quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with. The album was recorded and mixed at Much Luv Studio (Brutus, High Hi), and mastered by James Plotkin (The Melvins, Sunn 0))) ). For fans of: Salem, Tropics of Cancer, H09909, Dlek, Death Grips, Chelsea Wolfe, Zola Jesus, .

GNAW THEIR TONGUES - GENOCIDAL MAJESTY
'Genocidal Majesty' delivers exactly what the titles promises: its epically brutal, filthy and oppressive, but with such an over-arching grandeur, you cannot but feel compelled to descend together with Gnaw Their Tongues into sheer madness. This is an album that grabs your attention by force, and will not let you go. Another tour the force of this remarkable conjurer of darkness.

GNAW THEIR TONGUES - HYMNS FOR THE BROKEN, SWOLLEN AND SILENT
After the 2012 release of Per Flagellum Sanguemque, Tenebras Veneramus on double 10" vinyl, the Dutch master of all things nightmare Gnaw Their Tongues returns to Consouling Sounds for the vinyl release of his brand new offering Hymns For The Broken, Swollen and Silent. The new album shows Gnaw Their Tongues at the top of its game. The band started out as a studio project, but has recently started performing live, and it feels like this carefully found its way into the music. Dont get us wrong: oppressive, bleak and claustrophobic remain the key words when describing the unique output of this drone/noise/black metal infused miscreant of Mories. The music grabs you by the throat and sucks all the air out of the room. Although it leaves little more than an anaerobe environment, the music itself feels likes it has been breathing and organically growing into this true beast of an album. second pressing on black vinyl.

GNAW THEIR TONGUES - I SPEAK THE TRUTH, YET WITH EVERY WORD UTTERE
'I speak the truth, yet with every word uttered, thousands die' is Gnaw Their Tongues' 14th full length containing absolute disgusting frequencies and utter despair. Gnaw Their Tongues. Slowly stabbing the life out of everything since 2004. Born from personal inner conflict as a means to scream at the world. Countless releases on countless labels, shows all over the world. Still hungry for the blood of humanity. Still vomiting ear piercing noise upon the world. Always a reflection of the world at large... The world is not doing good and that is reflected in this album. This album revolves around death, human failure, depression and hatred. "For fans of ear-piercing and indecipherable shrieks, wild electronic drum noise, dark static feedback, and layered death clanging that will rattle your bones." - Riff Relevant

GORATH - APOKALYPSIS - UNVEILING THE AGE THAT IS NOT T
About the Apocalypse of John. Many have tried to interpret these visions, but very few have managed to look beyond the madness, beyond the deceit of the false "God" that so many weaklings worship. Those desperate fools who put their faith and hope in the final judgement by their "God" are up for an unpleasant revelation, for He is not who He claims to be. Cursed is he who reads aloud the words of the prophecy and doomed are those who hear and who keep what is written therein... Originally released on CD through Twilight Vertrieb.

IIVII - COLONY
IIVII is the new solo project fabricated by visual artist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, Josh Graham. A founding member of Red Sparowes and Battle Of Mice, Graham currently plays in A Storm Of Light, and has made appearances with Jarboe, Blood And Time, Tombs, Syndrome, Fallen Black Deer, and Tribes Of Neurot. With IIVII, Graham focuses on sonically engulfing and moody soundscapes, layered with a science-fiction edge. This approach has allowed Graham to expand upon his sonic body of work and traverse new electronic territory, focusing on the subtle orchestration and manipulation of dense sonic atmospheres, rather than the bombastic approach found in A Storm Of Light. Depicting a derelict space colony in view of Saturn, the artwork was also completed by Graham, who currently serves as art director to Soundgarden, and has also worked with many bands including Neurosis, Jesu, Shrinebuilder, Sleep, Vattnet Viskar, and Isis.

IIVII - INVASION
With his 2015 album "Colony", Josh Graham (A Storm of Light, ex-Neurosis, ex-Red Sparowes, ex-Battle of Mice...) coined the genre "Ambient Fiction" for his musical project IIVII. This moniker couldnt be more apt, as Graham is exploring the boundaries between ambient music and science fiction themes. IIVIIs music is difficult to pigeonhole: making use of analogue synths and tape loops, the music refers to eighties film music on the one hand, a nod to the Berlin school ambient on the other hand, but nonetheless sounding refreshingly contemporary. The modus operandi of layering droning sounds and crafting eerie soundscapes is forwarded to his new album "Invasion", but Graham expanded on the IIVII sound with more percussive elements, giving the music an extra drive and ominous urgency. As usual, the visual side of the album is absolutely stunning, hinting at the great invasion movies that make up the collective memory. We cant wait to see "Invasion" come to life live, with Grahams signature visuals complementing this incredible music. POINTS OF INTEREST Sophomore album of dark ambient synth project by Josh Graham (ex-Neurosis, ex-Battle of Mice, ex-Red Sparowes, A Storm of Light) Solid white LP For fans of: S U R V I V E, Stranger Things OST, Zombi, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schultze...

ILLUMININE - #2 REWORKS
Belgian neo-classic artist Illuminine with "Illuminine - #2 Reworks" feat. Alex Somers, Message To Bears, Julien Marchal, Benoit Pioulard, Stijn Huwelsls, Wouter Dewit and Studnitzky Almost one year ago, Illuminine released #2; the follow-up of their highly acclaimed debut album #1. This second album offered the listeners a consistent set of songs with a highly emotional character. Both albums clearly showed the distinctive language of their founding member, Kevin Imbrechts, who came to the fore as a master of melancholia. Kevin Imbrechts now asked several musicians to reconstellate some of the songs of the second album. The result is #2 Reworks; an ambitious album which provides the listener with a varied collection of reworks by national and international artists. The music ranges from minimal organic techno to fragile ambient and from delicate solo piano to soft electro. Limited vinyl edition of 250 handmade silkscreened copies on coloured vinyl.

LENTO - FOURTH
The experimental psych sludge masters of Lento are back with a brand-new album. Their fourth album is aptly called "Fourth", and beautifully displays the no-nonsense attitude of these Italians. From the opening track, the band show they mean business, with the music pouring over its audience. Their forthrightness is beautifully balanced by the intricacy of the album. Each track of the album is meticulously crafted, blending doom, stoner, math rock and even ambient with a seldom before heard groove and urgency. Expanding on the sound of 2012s 'Anxiety Despair Languish, Lento have layered an intricate web of dark and moody arrangements into a massive over-arching composition in 10 parts. This album is truly a gargantuan effort which puts Lento at the vanguard of instrumental doom music. For fans of: Ufomammut, Baroness, Mare, Cult of Luna, Sleep.

MAUDLIN - SASSUMA ARNAA
2013's A Sign of Time marked a break away from their post metal past. With the new album Sassuma Arnaa, they have completed that shift, in favour of a more progressive rock/metal sound that still checks the pulse of the doom/sludge side of the spectrum. These Belgians have taken their time to compose their follow-up album, and it really shows. The album is meticulously crafted and their quest for dynamics has really paid off. This is a very mature sounding album of a band that has confidently found their voice. Highly recommended if adventurous rock/metal is up your alley!

MINSK / ZATOKREV - BIGOD
On BIGOD, Minsk (USA) and Zatokrev (CH/EU) deliver a joint effort, a deliberative and collaborative intention to reflect their innermost expressions, another search for deeper meaning in the here and now through beautiful psychedelic melancholy paired with the heaviest walls of sound and creative destructiveness. Their shared passion and aesthetics gave rise to the idea for the split album BIGOD. The work creates a new spirit, one who unites two dark souls and joins two paths into one. Here, both bands contribute two epic songs, both receiving vocal support from the other. To complete the work, Parisian artist, Max Loriot, has created an extraordinary visual realization of BIGOD's theme, a compelling and interpretive take on the allegorical story of Elijah's fiery chariot. Two horses with their own will, a burning chariot with no horseman, the spirit fire of creation.

MNHM - OF EMPIRES END
The Dutch collective MNHM is defying labelling and genres. Being pigeonholed as noise rock, math rock, post metal, doom metal, prog, all the way up to free-jazz still fails to aptly describe the band. They have a very own way of composing music, drawing influences from all sorts of genres, and blending everything seamlessly together in epic miniature pieces of music. Most characteristic to the sound of the band is most certainly Otto Kokkes (Dead Neanderthals) saxophone, but the overall musicianship of the band is nothing short of phenomenal. Now following the critically acclaimed 2013 debut "Super-Empowered", the quartet has teamed up with Rocky OReilly (And so I watch you from afar) to release their brilliant new album.

OVTRENOIR - FIELDS OF FIRE
OVTRENOIR is a post metal band from Paris, France. Their latest album 'Fields of Fire' will be released through Consouling Sounds on the 23rd of October. Initiated by William Lacalmontie (guitar / vocals) in 2013 as an instrumental acoustic post-rock project, the line up consists of long-time close friends Julien Taubregeas (The Great Divide), Angeline Seguelas, joined by Dehn Sora (Treha Sektori / Throane) in 2015. Now adding Olivier Dubuc (ex The Last Embrace) as a fifth live member and after about 20 shows in Europe (France, Belgium, Spain, Russia, Netherlands) including Roadburn festival in 2019, they can fully transcribe that heaviness on stage. As a first album, 'Fields of Fire' takes further the journey that OVTRENOIR began with a monolithic Ep followed by a single track reaching for more melody.

SERRIES, DIRK - UNSEEN DESCENDING AND LAMENTATION
Unseen Descending And Lamentations is the result of Dirk Serries collaborations with (free)jazz and improv artists. These new encounters led Serries to a whole new approach of finding inspiration, and to the actual writings of his solo output. Not only his instrumentarium is augmented with a 1976 Fender Rhodes and a violin, his recent solo concerts in Norway also sparked Serries to explore a vast array of sounds - without losing track of his minimal and atmospheric roots. Almost simultaneously, Serries was reconnecting with his classic VidnaObmana period (1987-1996) - which will even result in a brand new album on the trusted Projekt Records. It comes to no surprise then these influences also echo throughout his new solo material. The new album, which serves as a prelude to the successor of the 2013 critically acclaimed microphonics xxi-xxv album, creates a musical universe that bridges the gap between ,vintage" Serries, and the Serries that is constantly searching for new ways to touch the sublime in sounds, harmonies and atmospheres. Unseen Descending And Lamentations is a very personal expression of new musical developments in constant motion.

For this release, Dirk Serries (Microphonics, VidnaObmana, Continuum, Fear Falls Burning) and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek, DNMF, Piiptsjilling, Shivers, Cloud Ensemble) teamed up to make a hauntingly beautiful album in 4 chapters. Sparse and subtle, but powerful and urgent, these chapters lift up the audience, and keeps them afloat for the entire listening trip.

SYNDROME - NOW AND FOREVER
Close to a decade ago a primitive form of Syndrome was brought to life as a vehicle for the solo output of Mathieu Vandekerckhove, mostly known for his work with Amenra. For years the self-taught musician learned and studied his craft of songwriting and sound scaping, mainly as a means to self exploration, meditation and attempts at channelling negative into positive energy, this while staying below the surface at all times. Now 2012 marks a turning point for Mathieu Vandekerckhove and Syndrome as he steps forward, with the epic 28 minute long "Now And Forever". Dedicated to his son Wolf, this track offers words of guidance and will grant you a look into the heart and soul of the artist. Close your eyes and hear the beating heart of pure artistic freedom. Guitars and vocals by Mathieu Vandekerkhove (Amenra, Kingdom, Sembler Deah, Caan) Additional vocals by Colin H. van Eeckhout (Amenra, Kingdom, CHVE,.)

THISQUIETARMY - ANTHEMS FOR CATHARSIS
Anthems for Catharsis marks the follow up to thisquietarmys last full length studio works "Rebirths", a representative collection of reworked tracks that have defined his purgative live performances. Between back-to-back tours in Europe & Asia and the release of live drone documents as well as collaborative works with Noveller, Aidan Baker/Hypnodrone Ensemble, Andr Foisy/Locrian, Syndrome/Amenra, thisquietarmys Eric Quach went back to the drawing board in his Montreal studio, at the end of 2014. Within the repetitive genre of ambient and drone, thisquietarmy constantly evolves and tries to incorporate new additional textures and structures into the music - for instance, think of the kraut rock shoegaze of "Resurgence", or the post rock doom of "Hex Mountains". However, in other to start fresh and shed skin from exhaustive influences, Quach strips his music down to the black bones. Anthems for Catharsis sounds very focused but also very very dark, not unlike a ritual cleansing or a detoxification. In dismantling his sound, thisquietarmy almost struck a black metal vein, resulting in a dark and brooding ice cold oozing of his signature drones.

ULVEBLOD - OMNIA MORS AEQUAT
Since 2006, Vitriol and M. have been crafting their own, unique version of black metal as Nihill. Internationally recognised as one of the leading bands to combine old school influences with avant-garde experimentation and an almost infuriating, hypnotic repetition. With the passing of singer and founding member M., the cult of Nihill has come to a grinding halt. Main guitarist and producer Vitriol has now created a new vessel for the void, called Ulveblod. The band is using some of the same session players as Nihill did, but with tracks that have all last shreds of sanity and comprehension stripped away. Ulveblod is pure, chaotic channeling of an inner anger and a feeling of senselessness, set to music. The bands' first album 'Omnia Mors Aequat' will be released simultaneously with their debut show on the acclaimed Roadburn Festival 2020, where it will be played integrally and set to a tailor made video accompagnement which will also be executed live... This unique show is surely one of those 'not to be missed' slots on an already stellar line-up! For fans of: Nihill, Gnaw Their Tongues, Teitanblood, Revenge, Nekrasov...

VAN WISSEM, JOZEF - EX MORTIS
These new compositions are inspired by 'The Book of Gostlye Grace', which was written by nuns in the convent of Helfta in the 1290's. It depicts an intense religious and even erotic desire to get closer to God. Playing around the dichotomy of eros and thanatos, Van Wissem paints a vivid and engrossing picture. He got the help from Jarboe, Nikolaj Komiagin and Thor to get his take on Ex Mortis come to full fruition. Jozef Van Wissem will extensively tour 2020 to promote Ex Mortis. The idea of Ex Mortis, or 'From Death', is inscribed on the lute used to record this album, and refers to the renaissance of lute music as carried out by Van Wissem. All compositions by Jozef Van Wissem With Guests: Jarboe (Swans), Thor (Swans), Nikolaj Komiagin (Shortparis). "Both an avant-garde composer and a baroque lutenist, and thus no stranger to dichotomy." - New York Times "Pushing the lute's agenda out of the academy and into more accessible circles." - Pitchfork

WIEGEDOOD - DE DODEN HEBBEN HET GOED
The band members have proven their worth in acts like Amenra, Oathbreaker, Hessian, Rise and Fall. an interesting gathering of musicians that immediately raises high expectations - they deliver. Against all expectations, the result of this collaboration has nothing to do with post metal, sludge or hardcore - Wiegedood treats us to a relentless onslaught of atmospheric black metal. The music might be categorized in vein of the cascadian black metal wave from the US. They bring their European twist into the mix. De Doden Hebben Het Goed, a debut album of what you can hardly call a debuting band - the title covers the album perfectly: a bleak take on extreme metal music. But it never loses touch with the band members' other projects.

WIEGEDOOD - DE DODEN HEBBEN HET GOED II
After the release of the critically acclaimed De Doden Hebben het Goed, Wiegedood didnt exactly lay low. Not only did the band tour Europe extensively, they also got together to compose their follow-up album De Doden Hebben het Goed II whilst being in the flow of playing together for numerous nights in a row. The organic feeling of playing the music live certainly found its way into the sound of the band. You can expect everything that was brilliant about the debut album, but more concise, compact, and precise. Over a relative short span of time, Wiegedood certainly developed a sound of its own within the atmospheric black metal lexicon. This sound is extended to the second installment of De Doden Hebben het Goed, but with a fresh and urgent ferociousness added to the mix. A monster album. And thats a promise. For fans of: Amenra, Oathbreaker, Hessian, Rise and Fall, Wolves in the Throne Room, Ash Borer, Skagos, Fell Voices, Altar of Plagues.

WITXES - ORIENTS
ORIENTS is the third long length record by Witxes (still pronounced "witches"), main vessel for french artist Maxime Vavasseur (born 1985). Two years in the making, Vavasseur admits it wasn't an easy one to work on, mostly because it deals with "being stuck in the illusion of infinite possibilities, with reality and virtuality becoming dangerously one". Featuring horns by Krystian Sarrau (Dale Cooper Quartet) & Matthieu Metzger (Killing Spree, Louis Sclavis Quintet, Marc Ducret, etc.) and additional synthesizers and percussions by Fabien Mysak. Cover art courtesy of Sarah Meyohas, from her Speculations series.

YODOK III - A DREAMER ASCENDS
YODOK III excels as a live band. The strong reputation they have is thanks to the sophisticated structure of their long live epics, the intense dynamics and homogenous group sounds they know to create on stage. It is not a surprise that "A Dreamer Ascends" is only their 3rd album after 7 years. This album was recorded in 2017, in the Ora Studio in Trondheim, Norway. But to distil an album made up of 3 hours of music is not an easy task. "A Dreamer Ascends" is a super tightly clenched album in which their YODOK III's organic sounds plays a central role. The album is not exactly a long sophisticated composition of their live concerts, but as a listener you receive an album that blossoms, with a raw edge, but full off intensity, grainy sound layers and a pulsing rhythm. For fans of: Dirk Serries, Ulver, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, MNHM, The Use of Ashes

30.000 MONKIES - I ATE MYSELF TO GROW TWICE AS BIG
After having released two incredible EPs and building up quite the live reputation, Belgiums 30,000 Monkies finally are ready to storm into the limelight with their debut full album I Ate Myself to Grow Twice as Big. Their very particular nonsensical sense of humor is a perfect companion to their music: absurdly, yet effortlessly, blending sludge, doom and solid riffing with noise and psychedelic drones, the band takes you to all kinds of places all at once. 30,000 Monkies is truly one of the most exciting young bands we heard in a long time. The band has been on our radar for quite a while now, and were really pleased to be able to present this monstrous sounding beast of an album. As the illegitimate child of a night full of debauchery between Sleep, The Melvins, Melt Banana, Harvey Milk, McLusky, Lightning Bolt and even Merzbow, the band most certainly ticks all the right boxes. Be prepared for this tasty feast!

30.000 MONKIES - SOMEWHERE OVER THE PAINBOW
30,000 Monkies are an experimental stoner noise quartet from Beringen, Belgium. Their sonority is described as experimental not because the band tries to merge a wide variety of sounds and textures in order to create something awkward, but due to their non-linear approach to song structures and sounds that brings to mind a noisier version of Melvins jamming with Flaming Lips. Their first EP Womb Eater Wife Beater released in 2011, showcased the band blending the sludgy heaviness of bands like Melvins and Harvey Milk with elements of psychedelia and noise-rock. For their newest EP, Somewhere Over The Painbow, they have opted to offer a more straightforward version of their aesthetic, but still retain a bit of their experimental edge by launching into some weirdo riffing and sounds throughout these four new tracks.

A-SUN AMISSA - THE GATHERER
Formed in 2011 by Richard Knox, the instrumental music collective A-Sun Amissa has released a few phenomenal albums on Knoxs own Gizeh label. We couldn't be more happy A-Sun Amissa wanted to reach out and give "The Gatherer" a home on Consouling Sounds. Their dense drone-like atmospheres, accompanying melodic string and woodwind sections, intertwined with guitars and field recordings are nothing short of amazing. Expanding on their incredible instrumental music, "The Gatherer" also welcomes guest vocals by CHVE (Amenra, Sembler Deah, Kigdom, CHVE, .), adding a vocal layer of atmosphere to the work. "The Gatherer" is a majestic aural tour de force, guaranteed to leave its audience in awe. POINTS OF INTEREST Guest vocals by CHVE (Amenra, Kingdom, Harlowe, ...)

ADERLATING - SPEAR OF GOLD AND SERAPHIM BONE I
Aderlating is slowly but surely making a name for itself. Starting out as an outlet for Mories (Gnaw Their Tongues/De Magia Veterum) to bring his unique dark aurual vison to the live environment, together with Eric (Mowlawner), Aderlating evolved into a solid recording/performing band. After releasing various splits (Cdr, LP), ep's (Free downloads, Cassettes) and two full lenghts (Cdr, Cd) Aderlating is now ready to unleash new tidal waves of darkness with "Spear of Gold & Seraphim Bone I", the first part of a diptych. (The second part is scheduled to be released later this year). Ranging from subtle ambient to noise-drenched slabs of black metal, rumbling low-ends, screeching highs and driven industrial brutality, Aderlating is captivating and disenchanting at the same time. The game of attracting and repelling casts the audience under a dark spell. And this metaphor really isn't far fetched. The whole atmosphere breathes a hypnotic darkness, which has a distinct ritualistic feel to it. It's surely no surprise this work is the follow-up of 2010's "Devotional Hymns", as Aderlating's sounds seem to be vile ritual hymns of pure darkness and horror. It purges all the filth, bleakness and darkness of the world, and channels it into a mind numbing sonic abuse the listener just can't get enough of. The word 'cathartic' never has been more in its place...

ADERLATING - SPEAR OF GOLD AND SERAPHIM BONE II
After the unleashing of Spear of Gold and Seraphim Bone part I, 2013 will spawn the second installment of this behemoth of a project. With this counterpart Mories (Gnaw Their Tongues/De Magia Veterum/Seirom) and Eric (Mowlawner) conclude the journey through hypnotic insanity they started to critical acclaim back in 2011. Rendering the diptych complete, this second part nonetheless serves as a chapter of its own. Atmospheric disenchantment, condensed in noisy slabs of ritualistic drones. From the lowest depths of aural madness to screeching industrial driven metallish mayhem. All the twisted and deformed elements that separates Aderlating from the boys come to full fruition as the sum of part one and two equals a sensory frenzy second to none.

ADORAN - ADORAN
The new project from Aidan Baker (Nadja, Whisper Room, BBS, Caudal, ... ) and Dorian Williamson (Northumbria, Holoscene). Spanning nearly an hour, the tracks of this album explore Aidan's and Dorian's sludgy doom-side in a whole different way: atmospheric as ever, yet heavily relying on rhythmic patterns. Aidan's drums sound bone-crushing, and are really the pulse of ADORAN's music. Straightforward drumming or playing around with syncopations, it makes the odd sludgy sounds Dorian produces come vibrantly alive. In light of these gentlemen's oeuvre, this albums sounds both familiar and at the same time excitingly fresh. The album is mastered by James Plotkin, which contributes tremendously to the delicately brutal sounds of ADORAN. The music is full and heavy, but rich in detail. An amazing job by Plotkin, that surely has done justice to the aural experience Aidan and Dorian envisioned. If you're a fan of either Aidan or Dorian, or you're a sludgy doom fan in general, we couldn't recommend this one enough.

Adoran is back! After the acclaimed 2013 album, Aidan Baker (Nadja, B/B/S, Whisper Room, Caudal, .) and Dorian Williamson (Northumbria, Holoscene), follow up with their sophomore album "Children of Mars" on Consouling Sounds. The albums picks up where the self-titled debut album left off: drawing largely on improvisational soundscaping with Baker relentlessly pounding the drums and Williamson conjuring a wall of sound on his bass. They might be just a duo, but they fill up the sound beyond belief. Their exploration of both atmospheric and heavy sounds takes the listener to all kinds of places. From doom and drone over ambient and sludge, even touching with experimental and avant-garde, youre in for an epically dark ride.

ALKERDEEL - LEDE
Alkerdeel are back for their first full length since 2012's Morinde! It might seem a long time, but the band has been working very hard. This resulted in a couple of split albums that hinted at the direction they were headed, but mostly they used the time to piece together the brand new album Lede. The album is undeniably Alkerdeel: the muddy but yet surprisingly well defined sound is ever present. The direction in which the music evolves did change over time. The doomy sludge drone monster of before made way for a more direct and head-on approach. These Belgians are not beating around the bush this time: they will grab you, and drag you along for a relentless journey through their murky uncompromising black metal wasteland. On the artwork of Jeroen Pede: Immediately recognizable among all other releases on Consouling Sounds, are those designed by Jeroen Pede for the band Alkerdeel. Jeroen (Gent, Belgium), himself a band member of Alkerdeel, has held on to a consistent imagery to develop the look of the band. Inspiration comes from graphic imagery, both in a literal and figurative sense, as very linear work of Beardsley, Bosch, and other scatological pictures are used as an inspiration. As such, Jeroen Pede has built up a world of dark yet cheeky imagery engulfing Alkerdeel and adding strength to their message.

ALKERDEEL - MORINDE
No better way to start off the apocalyptical year 2012 than with the unleashing of Alkerdeel's debut full album 'Morinde' upon this world. After a few successful demo's/EP'S, these Belgians are pushing up the ante. It's clear Alkerdeel has progressed quite a bit since the release of 'Luizig'. Although the familiar elements are still present - raw sludge/doom infused with filthy black metal - the compositions have matured and gained more depth. The lo-fi approach of the previous albums made room for a more thoughtful recording process, making it sound perhaps more accessible but also allows the sound to reveal all its sluggish nuances. But rest assured, Alkerdeel remains Alkerdeel: a mean putrid steamroller that takes no prisoners. If you're a fan of Darkthrone, Burning Witch, Wolves In The Throne Room, Beherit, Mount Eerie, . this one's right up your alley! Mastered by Tom Kvalsvoll in Strype Audio, Oslo.

AMAZUMI - V FOR VENOM
A M A Z U M I is a force of nature. She is flow, rhythm and word personified. She is also your foreign girl-next-door, hailing from more than a few places and professions for most people to remember. Much like her evolving identity, she is constantly searching and molding her sound. While she may not have found a sense of belonging in any country or community, she found her place and a resonating voice in HipHop. A Nepalese from Hong Kong, she began her journey into HipHop while studying documentary filmmaking in London but admits to being sonically made in Gent where she took the freedom to learn, experiment and grow as an artist. Formerly known as Zulu Moon, she released her first single and EP in 2014 and 2015 respectively. While she was actively performing in Belgium, UK & the Netherlands throughout 2015-16, she has been working on her new E P, V for Venom set to release in early 2017. The new EP showcases her lyricism and musicality in a different light. The soundscape is heavily infused with steely synths, hard basslines, heavy guitar licks and dark elements. It comes from a place. For fans of: Coely, Dutch Norris, Blackwave., Kendrick Lamar, Goldlink, etc.

AMENRA - ALIVE
In 2009, Amenra released the beautiful and fragile EP Afterlife, meant as a musical testament for future generations. The acoustic tracks that made up this EP showed a very different aspect of Amenra, but also proved that in any incarnation the band connects on a deeply emotional level with its audience. The acoustic album kept on lingering in the background, and it was only a matter of time for the band to revisit the acoustic approach of the EP. In 2014 this Belgian powerhouse again showed its most vulnerable side on different stages. This album collects live recordings of old and new acoustic renditions of Amenra tracks, but it also harbors the collaboration with Belgian poet Sofie Verdoodt and two bone chilling covers.

AMENRA - MASS I
As the Masses amassed, it became clear Amenra was a serious contender within the post/sludge/doom genre. Mass V (Neurot, 2012) highlighted the gravity and sincerity of Amenra's unique vision, as they were heralded to universal acclaim. With this reissue of the long out of print debut album we take a step back, and celebrate the album that started the procession now exactly a decade ago. Mass I, rooted in the (post)hardcore and noise scene, reveals an ambitious outfit that are set to preach their distinctive blurring of genres and musical conventions. The original recordings' brilliance is finally revealed by Billy Anderson's (Eyehategod, Melvins, Neurosis, Swans, .) tremendous remastering of the album. Mass I never sounded this full and powerful.

B/CHVE/SYNDROME - REWORKS
CHVE Colin H. Van Eeckhout is best known when he is surrounded by kindred spirits, but with CHVE he steps into the limelight all on his own. He crafted his music and transformed it into a unique entity. CHVE solely makes use of a hurdy gurdy and his voice as instruments to dig deep within his own self. Just a man, his thoughts, scars and memories, with his voice and his instrument. SYNDROME Several years ago a primitive form of Syndrome was brought to life as a vehicle for the solo output of Mathieu Vandekerckhove, mostly known for his work with Amenra, Kingdom, Sembler Deah,... For years the self-thought musician learned and studied his craft of songwriting and soundscaping, mainly as a means to self-exploration, meditation and attempts at channelling negative into positive energy. B - "1 MAN vs 4 MACHINES" B is the live Techno project from Bert Libeert. Armed with just two synths and two drum machines B is bringing the rawness and spontaneity of live music back to clubs. His signature sound is an uncompromising mix of hard edged EBM and Old School Techno that still sounds as exciting today as when it first kicked off a musical revolution in the 1980s. THE COLLABORATION They knew each other from back in school and are from the same region in Belgium, but it was the music that finally brought them together. Their collaboration started when B was inspired by the the track "Rasa" by CHVE and "Forever and a day" by syndrome. When Bert heard their intoxicating sounds he immediate was triggered do something with it. Despite the differences between the different artists, they have lots of similarities when it comes to energy, emotions and character. This is why the meditative vibes of CHVE and SYNDROME blend in perfectly with the dark basslines and low pitched beats from B.

BAKER, AIDAN - LOST IN THE RAT MAZE
With Lost in the Rat Maze Aidan Baker (als know from the drone project Nadja) produces an unconventional album - even to Baker-standards. Having been known for his extensive ambient soundscapes, Baker chose a different approach to his sound weaving - albeit true to the "Bakersound". In stead of a densely layered and broad sound palette, Baker has almost embraced a "postrockish" method of composing. More compact, pointed and clear progressions can be discovered, together with a diverse array of instruments, sounds and techniques. Expect the classic Aidan Baker elements: captivating, fascinating and repetitive mesmerizing sounds - but with a different twist to it. Aidan Baker has worked in the past with artists like John Duncan, Tim Hecker, Zev, Matt Borghi, Jakob Thiesen, .

BAKER, AIDAN - THERE/NOT THERE
"There / Not There" will be released through Consouling Sounds on the 2nd of October. It combines Baker's interest in minimalistic post-rock and textured ambient noise, the ongs' themselves on this album numbering among the first Baker wrote at the beginning of his career but as yet never properly recorded. Rather than recording all parts himself, as Baker has done with previous albums, and in an effort to give the album more of a band sound and feel, he invited drum and bass contributions respectively from Fiona McKenzie (also of Halma) and Dana Schechter (also of Insect Ark, Bee And Flower, Angels of Light, Swans). Although recording of the tracks began in 2019, given the circumstances of the 2020 pandemic the album was completed via file-sharing and not in person, the tracks assembled and mixed at Baker's Broken Spine Studios in Berlin, Germany. Simon Scott, drummer in Slowdive and also a contributor to Baker's 2012 album "The Spectrum of Distraction" (Robotic Empire), mastered the album.

The Hypnodrone Ensemble is a new project conceived by Aidan Baker (Nadja, Caudal, B/B/S) & Eric Quach aka thisquietarmy (Parallel Lines, Destroyalldreamers, Mains de Givre) as part of an exclusive performance during thisquietarmy's Europe tour in the spring of 2014. In the last 10 years, the two prolific guitarists have collaborated on several releases, toured together and shared stages numerous times in North America & Europe. The idea was to present a collaborative, semi-improvisational piece exploring atmospheric guitar drones and propulsive polyrhythms, joined by Berlin-based drummers Felipe Salazar (Caudal, Muerte en Pereira), Jrmie Mortier (Alice In The Cities), and David Dunnett (Man Meets Bear). The performance was recorded live in front of a captivated audience at NK - an artist residence and sound arts organisation in Berlin-Neukoeln to be released as their debut album. They will perform again at Incubate Festival 2014 in Tilburg as part of Aidan Baker's residency.

BAKER, AIDAN/THOMAS JARMIR - WERL
Aidan Baker (Nadja, Caudal, Hypnodrone Ensemble, .) and Tomas Jarmyr (Zu, Barchan, Yodok, YODOK III, .) are both very active and prolific artists with a shared vision on sound sculpting and free improv. It seems like a miracle they found the time to record together, but somehow they did. And, they made it count! The result of their recording sessions, "Werl", is a trip that lasts longer than an hour and a half. This seems a bit much, but it truly isnt. The album constantly evolves and grows and demands your attention. The album twists and turns from psychedelica, krautrock, space rock to ambient, noise and doom. "Werl" is a unique and remarkable album. Consouling Sounds is tremendously honored to release this extraordinary album as a double CD set. The music has been mastered by James Plotkin and the packaging comes with artwork by the Belgian artist Kato Six.

BARABBAS - THE LOCKSMITH
Band members from SardoniS, Hedonist, Rebel Yell, The Grams and Solenoid decided to join forces, with this Genk-based power house as a result. Each band member brings in some of the DNA of his other band, making this an album that is stoner doom from the hardrock side of the spectrum, with a grungy edge added to the mix. If youre in for no compromise full on rock action, search no more: Barabbas is the rock n roll cure for whatever ails you.

BARST - THE ENDEAVOR
Taking cue from live renditions, the structure of the album started to present itself early on. It was only a question of arranging it, structuring it, and constantly rebuilding it, before the whole extent of this endeavor started to crystalize. This album -- which is yet again presented as one long trip -- is spectacularly complex and utterly engaging. To record this beast of an album, BARST was blessed with contributions by among others: Niels Brown (Vonnis), Gregory Simons (Vonnis, Arise Fair Sun), Messy Mathi, Mathlovsky (Mathlovsky), Tokyo Oyo, William Lacalmontie (OVTRENOIR) and Mike Armine (Rosetta). Because BARST is always about stunning all the senses, Marlies De Smet from Teer Studio has expertly visualized the Endeavour. Let this gesamtkunstwerk pull you in, and engage in the Endeavour. For fans of: Swans, Rosetta, OVTRENOIR, A Place To Bury Strangers, 65daysofstatic, Slowdive, Mayhem, Burzum, Sun 0))), Death Grips, Dalek, Aphex Twin...

BARST - THE WESTERN LANDS
After having released the critically acclaimed three-way collab album with Treha Sektori and RM74, numerous cassettes, and a whole lot of live shows, BARST is finally ready to present his full length debut album "The Western Lands". This is an obvious reference to William S. Burroughs. The fragmented, the transcendental and the viscerally unsettling of his work was taken as an inspiration point to build up the massive effort that is BARSTs debut full length. Moreover, the cut-up technique of Burroughs earlier work, where layer upon layer is fitted to build up a work of art, is exactly BARSTs modus operandi too. Cutting up sounds, and layering them from very subtle to incredibly huge is in BARSTs DNA. To reach the massive sound achieved on the "The Western Lands", he had the help of an amazing riches of musicians like Mike Armine (Rosetta), Dehn Sora (Treha Sektori, Sembler Deah, .), Karen Willems (Inwolves), Mathieu Mathlovsky(Mathlovsky), Nicolas Van Meirhaeghe (Empusae, Onus, .), An-Sofie De Meyer (FAR), Tokyo Oyo and Herr Man. The album is one epic trip, encompassing ambient, drone, metal, shoegaze and electronica. "The Western Lands" captures a multitude of musical universes, and blends them seamlessly together in one of the most complete albums we have ever heard. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Tim De Gieter at Much Luv Studio. The artwork, which reflects the same inspiration, was expertly executed by Niels Verwijk RIYL: GYBE!, 65 Days of Static, And So I Watch You From Afar, Slowdive, Ride, Swans, My Bloody Valentine, Sun O))), Coil, Liturgy, Wrekmeister Harmonies, Atari Teenage Riot.

BLACK HEART REBELLION, THE - HAR NEVO
TBHR has changed, shed its old skin, and slowly but surely reshaped its original mold. HAR NEVO is the bands second album and became a conjuring and restless creation. TBHR shows off many faces. Starting in the punk scene in 2004, the band's remarkable course roller-coasted from the international underground to more public stages in and around Belgium. The band was constantly on the hunt for new impulses, either visually, graphically or musically. The new album reflects that steady, artistic evolution. HAR NEVO oozes with waiting, tiresome and disconcerting. Working patiently and endlessly towards an inevitable outburst. Produced, recorded and mixed by Koen Gisen (An pierle and white velvet, Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat, The Bony King of Nowhere, Flying Horseman). Mastered by Uwe Teichert. Guest vocals by Colin H. Van Eeckhout and Mathieu Vandekerckhove (Amenra, Kingdom,...), Koen Gisen, Stef Heeren, An Pierel and Daan De Vree

CHARNIA - DAGERAAD
Charnia, young wolves from the Waasland in Belgium, have been making quite an impression in the underground live scene since 2012. Their mixture of sludge and post metal, combined with ambient and drone elements, makes up for a gripping listening experience. After having carved and crafted their debut album ,Dageraad" for ages, theyre finally ready to immerse their audience in their grey and gloomy world. However, what seems like an odious wall of sound at face value, keeps on revealing its inner-strentgh and inner beauty with each listening session. This album will be released at Incubate 2014. It will be up for exclusive pre-sale in the Consouling Sounds Mobile Office

CHARNIA - HET LAATSTE LICHT
After the release of Dageraad in 2014, the band didnt exactly sit still. They have started to write on a whole new piece, which would crystalize into Het Laatste Licht. Departing from their post-metal debut, the band has been working on subtler droney and ambient layers of music. Charnia has brought this piece of music as a work in progress on several occasions, perfecting the album every step along the way. The time is finally here to unveil this remarkable piece of music. The music unravels organically, interweaving hauntingly beautiful melodies and soundscapes, aided by the expert musicianship of Jens Debacker (violin) and Innerwoud (double bass). This fragile piece of work, which is reminiscent of the way Godspeed You! Black Emperor or A-Sun Amissa build their music, does not let go of its audience, even after the fierce and harrowing finale has passed.

CHVE - 10910
At the end of 2015, CHVE made quite an impression with his debut solo full album "Rasa". CHVE is best known for his work with Amenra, but the solo work took a different turn both musically and stylistically. Instead of the brute primal force and walls of sound, CHVE's solo work is very introspective and intimistic, making use solely of his voice, a hurdy gurdy and the bodhran. The approach might be very different, but the music is equally devastating and brutally honest. "Rasa" was the studio incarnation of CHVE, produced with the aid of Dehn Sora (Treha Sektori, Sembler Deah, .), but during his many live shows, the music transformed organically in a distinctly different way. To document the transformation from the studio to a live solo CHVE performance, this beautiful new live record is presented. The album captures the music in a truly unique way: it was recorded by one man in one take in an old tram, amidst the busy Saturday city life of Ghent, and was immediately cut to vinyl afterwards. These recordings have been mixed by Aaron Harris (ISIS, Palms, Deftones, Tool, etc.) and have been mastered by Frederik Dejongh at Jerboa Mastering (CHVE, TBHR, Syndrome, etc.) to ensure the most perfect listening experience of this live rendition of "Rasa", augmented with a unique interpretation of Nicos Le Petit Chevalier. For the artwork, CHVE and Tine Guns collaborated in a unique way with visuals of Guns playing a part in the packaging of the album and the music of the CHVE live album playing a part in Guns new film "To Each His Own Mask". Furthermore, Aline Gorsen created relics of CHVEs own flesh, which are also featured in the artwork.

CHVE - RASA
Colin H. Van Eeckhout is best known when he is surrounded by kindred spirits, but now he steps into the limelight all on his own. This first solo album was preluded by a split 7" he released together with Nate Hall. In the meantime however, CHVE crafted his music and transformed it into a whole unique entity. In stead of the folkish singer/songwriter track he premiered back in 2012/2015, CHVE now solely makes use of a hurdy gurdy and his voice as instruments to dig deep within his own self. This is CHVE on his most vulnerable. Just a man, his thoughts, scars and memories, with his voice and his instrument. The album is magnificently produced by Dehn Sora (Treha Sektori, Sembler Deah), and brings long soundscapes capturing in ambient and droning sounds what lies beyond what can be grasped by words. CHVE started to build his album out of an empty void. He built layer upon layer, and rebuilt and reconstructed to complete his universe called RASA. The album ended up somewhere between folk, drone and ritual. But above all, the album is a conquest, a meditation and it offers an inward journey, between grief and tears.

COMMON EIDER, KING EIDER - A WOUND OF EARTH
Birthed around the mid-two thousands in the wake of San Francisco's collapsing psychedelic and art rock scene, and gravitating around the core values and aesthetics of San Francisco's legendary tUMULt and aQuarius reCords strongholds, Common Eider, King Eider is an obscure congregation of veteran San Francisco sound sculptors and unrivaled masters of creation when it comes to realm of the most darkened, immaterial, and cataclysmic sonic architecture that the human mind can fathom. Taking cues from revolutionary and mind-expanding artists like Lustmord, Throbbing Gristle, Wardruna, Dead Can Dance, Halo Manash, Arvo Part, and Sunn O))), through their levitating, soul-shattering, and black hole-sized ritualistic black ambience, Common Eider, King Eider have elevated themselves to the rank of near-mystical figureheads in the realm of modern times dark ambient and drone music.

Despite the kilometers separating the members (who are currently located in Belgium and Russia), they managed to record their debut album The Signs of Spiritual which will be released on the 18th of September through Consouling Sounds. The 7-track album is a journey through illusions, delusions, anger, grief, agony, deprivation, self-loathing and obsession, guided through by hallucinations, flash-backs, voices and prayers, giving space to reflection, obtainment of self-control and much needed resurrection of self, stepping into the new cycle of martyrdom that is yet to be broken.

DAGHRAVEN - #1
Daghraven is the ambient/drone sibling of the Belgian band Illuminine, but sets out for its very own course. This is music composed after dark. It oozes a creepy eeriness out of every pore. Intricately constructed yet epically dispersed, Daghraven makes up for a brooding archeological listening trip through layers of our very own soil. Referring to our own medieval and (early) modern past, it scrapes behind the surface of the veil of time, revealing the awkward construct of realitys fabric. Its ambitious music in all its subtle droning shades.

Dead Neanderthals are steadily making a name for themselves. Helming The New Wave of Dutch Heavy Jazz, you know to expect something out of the ordinary. The duo - consisting of Ren Aquarius and Otto Kokke - are known for their free improvisational music, as is known in the jazz scene, but with a very different output. Flirting with extreme music like metal or even grindcore, their music takes on a dark twist. Their new offering, and debut on Consouling Sounds, "Craters" brings the band into dark and moody territories, adding a bass guitar to the sonic palette. The album sounds organically layered, with Aquariuss ominous percussion paving the way for Kokkes atmospheric sax arrangements, glued together by Maxime Petits bass tones. An album that will take you on a dark and twisted trip for sure. For Fans Of: Zu, MNHM, Monno, The Thing, Mombu, Mats Gustaffson, YODOK III, Sunn O))), Merzbow

DEUIL - SHOCK/DENY
Deuil is a 4-member band from Liège, Belgium - they've started their expedition in 2012 - Deuil is an odd and yet, very earthly experience - their sound has the scent of a deathly awe. Their creations are like a memoir of the lost and a pilgrimage to where time shutters and all hope is forever gone - brewing their sound with blackened and sludge elements -. Two track album - this release is about the two first levels of the mourning/grief process and about the sadness you can directly feel after the loss of someone close from you - they have obviously put more production love into this release, but the raw hostility is ever-present in this new track - the new track starts off with the familiar drone-sludge riff and drums just crushing in typical Deuil fashion, then we are faced with a blasting wall of of intensity - the full spectrum of the release is most excellent.

Graduals is the first Ekca Liena full length in over two years, the official sequel to the dreamscapes of the critically acclaimed Slow Music For Rapid Eye Movement.

EKCA LIENA - GRAVITY AND GRACE
Though the Ekca Liena discography has grown through various EP's, other albums and archival issues, the central sonic narrative that runs through its heart is arguably the most dramatic and involved. Starting with the dreamy soundscapes of 'Slow Music for Rapid Eye Movement' and continuing with the shadowy, lonely environments of 'Graduals', the next chapter is ready for the world and it's entitled 'Gravity and Grace'. The thick atmosphere of 'Gravity and Grace' is spiked with shades of geology and mechanics, with a layering of non musical sound underpinning the typically emotive and enrapturing core. Its expression is based on this juxtaposition, a beguiling friction between abstract sounds and largely melancholic compositions. The album dives deeper into the realms of doom and noise, where heavy guitar drones are the centre piece. However, it's neatly balanced with calm and even tender moments of yearning -- like we came to expect from Ekca Liena's previous releases. The final track sums up the album perfectly, and revisits the journey between darkness and light, noise and melody.

EMPUSAE - LUEUR
Empusae has been paving the way for many years now, resulting in the release of one critically acclaimed album after another. The main man, Sal-Ocin, is also a much-valued contributor and/or band member of a great myriad of acts, like for instance Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio, Onus and BARST - just name but a few. Although his music warrants a broad appeal, Empusae is best known in the dark electronica scene. With the release of this deeply personal album "Lueur", Empusae is breaking out of these confines for sure. "Lueur" most definitely sounds like Empusae, but the dark and brooding drone palette expands his sound tremendously. A testament to the gap Empusae bridges on this new album are the guest vocals of CHVE, whose characteristic vocal approach gives the music an extra sense of grief and longing, lending the music an extra urgency. This tale about darkness and light will not leave you unmoved and is bound to linger in your mind. For fans of: CHVE, Amenra, Lustmord, Tim Hecker, The Hasan Cloak, SPK, Rapoon, Muslimgauze, ORE.

'I speak the truth, yet with every word uttered, thousands die' is Gnaw Their Tongues' 14th full length containing absolute disgusting frequencies and utter despair. Gnaw Their Tongues. Slowly stabbing the life out of everything since 2004. Born from personal inner conflict as a means to scream at the world. Countless releases on countless labels, shows all over the world. Still hungry for the blood of humanity. Still vomiting ear piercing noise upon the world. Always a reflection of the world at large... The world is not doing good and that is reflected in this album. This album revolves around death, human failure, depression and hatred. "For fans of ear-piercing and indecipherable shrieks, wild electronic drum noise, dark static feedback, and layered death clanging that will rattle your bones." - Riff Relevant

GORATH - CHRONICLES OF KHILIASMOS
The Chronicles of Khiliasmos marks the last ever Gorath album that'll be unleashed on this earth. But instead of lamenting the burial of Gorath, it's a time to rejoice: their sixth full-length marks a tremendous termination point for this Belgian black metal outfit. Gorath's path has been one of exploring experimental digressions and steering into more progressive waters with every release - to much critical acclaim. Their latest and last offering displays a band that has fully embraced their position at the vanguard of extreme metal. The Chronicles of Khiliasmos renders a matured and seasoned take on progressive or post-black metal. The slow, doomy and complex ambient compositions not only characterize the sound of Gorath at its culmination point, it also hints at the future and of what to be expected after Gorath's funeration. Although this end is a pathway to a new beginning, it's only appropriate to first take some time to mourn the loss for the Belgian metal scene, and to savor Gorath's legacy and relish this last supper. Limited digifile edition of 500 copies.

GURA - CALIGURA
With the duo expanded to a trio, they shaped their new album Caligura showing the world the two sides of GURA: the first part of the album is a hectic soup of underground sound, an amalgamation of precise mathematical computing and spontaneous emotional melodies, supercharged with negative energy and an alldestroying rage towards the whole of creation. The second part brings a nearly unending chain of misanthropic doom riffs, a sullen mindscape that predicts nothing but the sense of barren isolation. For fans of: Monno, Death Neanderthals, Electric Wizard, Dillinger Escape Plan.

HEDONIST - THE COLLAPSE
Hedonist, a hard rockin', hard groovin' power trio from Genk, formed in the summer of 2010 when Roel Paulussen (Sardonis, Solenoid, Barabbas) and Frederik "Cozy" Cosemans (Serpentcult, Hemelbestormer, Death Penalty) decided to have a few jams together. Riffs and songs kept pouring out and soon a third party jumped on the train to wreak havoc upon the land. The thunderous bass and roaring vocals of Frank "Frenz" Homolka (Solenoid, The Killbots) were the perfect fit for Cozy's maniacal beats and Roel's neckbreaking axework and so the "power of three" was complete. On their first release, a split with stoner/sludge giants Your Highness, Hedonist delivered an exciting, energetic and compelling mix of Motorhead, High On Fire, Karma To Burn and Monster Magnet that suckerpunched audiences straight in the face. No nonsense, no bullshit, no fancy gimmicks, just pure, honest, kick-ass rock-n'-roll. Now, in the year 2016, the time has come to release the equally staggering full length "The Collapse". Once again, "The Collapse" is nothing more than the equivalent of a battering ram. From the pounding opener "The Urge", to the monstrous sludge assault of "Black Lungs" (featuring Ben from Your Highness on vocals) and the swampy, bluesy heaviness of "Beecher", Hedonist simply goes all the way on this one. Thirty-seven minutes of sheer rockin' mayhem coming your way. All killer, absolutely no filler! So brace yourself, open up a cold one and join the fun 'till you. collapse!

IIVII - COLONY
IIVII is the new solo project fabricated by visual artist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, Josh Graham. A founding member of Red Sparowes and Battle Of Mice, Graham currently plays in A Storm Of Light, and has made appearances with Jarboe, Blood And Time, Tombs, Syndrome, Fallen Black Deer, and Tribes Of Neurot. With IIVII, Graham focuses on sonically engulfing and moody soundscapes, layered with a science-fiction edge. This approach has allowed Graham to expand upon his sonic body of work and traverse new electronic territory, focusing on the subtle orchestration and manipulation of dense sonic atmospheres, rather than the bombastic approach found in A Storm Of Light. Depicting a derelict space colony in view of Saturn, the artwork was also completed by Graham, who currently serves as art director to Soundgarden, and has also worked with many bands including Neurosis, Jesu, Shrinebuilder, Sleep, Vattnet Viskar, and Isis.

IIVII - INVASION
With his 2015 album "Colony", Josh Graham (A Storm of Light, ex-Neurosis, ex-Red Sparowes, ex-Battle of Mice...) coined the genre "Ambient Fiction" for his musical project IIVII. This moniker couldnt be more apt, as Graham is exploring the boundaries between ambient music and science fiction themes. IIVIIs music is difficult to pigeonhole: making use of analogue synths and tape loops, the music refers to eighties film music on the one hand, a nod to the Berlin school ambient on the other hand, but nonetheless sounding refreshingly contemporary. The modus operandi of layering droning sounds and crafting eerie soundscapes is forwarded to his new album "Invasion", but Graham expanded on the IIVII sound with more percussive elements, giving the music an extra drive and ominous urgency. As usual, the visual side of the album is absolutely stunning, hinting at the great invasion movies that make up the collective memory. We cant wait to see "Invasion" come to life live, with Grahams signature visuals complementing this incredible music. POINTS OF INTEREST Sophomore album of dark ambient synth project by Josh Graham (ex-Neurosis, ex-Battle of Mice, ex-Red Sparowes, A Storm of Light) Solid white LP For fans of: S U R V I V E, Stranger Things OST, Zombi, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schultze...

LENTO - FOURTH
The experimental psych sludge masters of Lento are back with a brand-new album. Their fourth album is aptly called "Fourth", and beautifully displays the no-nonsense attitude of these Italians. From the opening track, the band show they mean business, with the music pouring over its audience. Their forthrightness is beautifully balanced by the intricacy of the album. Each track of the album is meticulously crafted, blending doom, stoner, math rock and even ambient with a seldom before heard groove and urgency. Expanding on the sound of 2012s 'Anxiety Despair Languish, Lento have layered an intricate web of dark and moody arrangements into a massive over-arching composition in 10 parts. This album is truly a gargantuan effort which puts Lento at the vanguard of instrumental doom music. For fans of: Ufomammut, Baroness, Mare, Cult of Luna, Sleep.

MAUDLIN - SASSUMA ARNAA
2013's A Sign of Time marked a break away from their post metal past. With the new album Sassuma Arnaa, they have completed that shift, in favour of a more progressive rock/metal sound that still checks the pulse of the doom/sludge side of the spectrum. These Belgians have taken their time to compose their follow-up album, and it really shows. The album is meticulously crafted and their quest for dynamics has really paid off. This is a very mature sounding album of a band that has confidently found their voice. Highly recommended if adventurous rock/metal is up your alley!

MINSK / ZATOKREV - BIGOD
On BIGOD, Minsk (USA) and Zatokrev (CH/EU) deliver a joint effort, a deliberative and collaborative intention to reflect their innermost expressions, another search for deeper meaning in the here and now through beautiful psychedelic melancholy paired with the heaviest walls of sound and creative destructiveness. Their shared passion and aesthetics gave rise to the idea for the split album BIGOD. The work creates a new spirit, one who unites two dark souls and joins two paths into one. Here, both bands contribute two epic songs, both receiving vocal support from the other. To complete the work, Parisian artist, Max Loriot, has created an extraordinary visual realization of BIGOD's theme, a compelling and interpretive take on the allegorical story of Elijah's fiery chariot. Two horses with their own will, a burning chariot with no horseman, the spirit fire of creation.

MNHM - OF EMPIRES END
The Dutch collective MNHM is defying labelling and genres. Being pigeonholed as noise rock, math rock, post metal, doom metal, prog, all the way up to free-jazz still fails to aptly describe the band. They have a very own way of composing music, drawing influences from all sorts of genres, and blending everything seamlessly together in epic miniature pieces of music. Most characteristic to the sound of the band is most certainly Otto Kokkes (Dead Neanderthals) saxophone, but the overall musicianship of the band is nothing short of phenomenal. Now following the critically acclaimed 2013 debut "Super-Empowered", the quartet has teamed up with Rocky OReilly (And so I watch you from afar) to release their brilliant new album.

NADJA - TOUCHED
Touched marked the debut full length of the duo Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff under the Nadja Moniker. A first version was presented by Deserted Factory Records in 2003. It would see a first proper release in 2007, reworked and expanded, on Alien8 Recordings. The album has been out of print for quite some time now. In honour for its 10-year anniversary, we are now re-releasing the album again. Expanded once more, with an extra CD filled with bonus material. The influential blog Pitchfork awarded the album a 7.9 score, citing: "Quiet and consonant, Touched ultimately suggests the whole thing may have been a nightmare. Or maybe this is just the eye of the storm. Either way, the path to solace is full on both high drama and deliverance". The path to solace will come extended. Dont miss out on the anniversary edition of this ground-breaking piece of art.

OVTRENOIR - FIELDS OF FIRE
OVTRENOIR is a post metal band from Paris, France. Their latest album 'Fields of Fire' will be released through Consouling Sounds on the 23rd of October.

Now adding Olivier Dubuc (ex The Last Embrace) as a fifth live member and after about 20 shows in Europe (France, Belgium, Spain, Russia, Netherlands) including Roadburn festival in 2019, they can fully transcribe that heaviness on stage. As a first album, 'Fields of Fire' takes further the journey that OVTRENOIR began with a monolithic Ep followed by a single track reaching for more melody.

SARDONIS - III
The third full album of the Belgian two man battalion SardoniS. "III" marks the follow up of 2012s "II", and steamrolls on that same path. No signs of hesitation or faltering in sight. Ever since their inception in 2006, SardoniS never came close to a misfire. The sheer energy this duo summons is awe-inspiring. Just a drum and a guitar is all thats needed for their full on assault of stoner/doom with a more than healthy dose of sludge. Pure heaviness and subtle melodies are intricately layered into the trademark SardoniS sound. With this third album, the battalion surely takes no prisoners.

This Belgian pioneer has come to a point in his career where he wants to take a look back, and dwell on the different stages within his career. Epitaph documents this journey spanning 4 decades, presenting the many faces of Dirk Serries in one long coherent and engrossing trip. This document is by no means to be interpreted as his grave.

SERRIES, DIRK - UNSEEN DESCENDING AND LAMENTATION
Unseen Descending And Lamentations is the result of Dirk Serries collaborations with (free)jazz and improv artists. These new encounters led Serries to a whole new approach of finding inspiration, and to the actual writings of his solo output. Not only his instrumentarium is augmented with a 1976 Fender Rhodes and a violin, his recent solo concerts in Norway also sparked Serries to explore a vast array of sounds - without losing track of his minimal and atmospheric roots. Almost simultaneously, Serries was reconnecting with his classic VidnaObmana period (1987-1996) - which will even result in a brand new album on the trusted Projekt Records. It comes to no surprise then these influences also echo throughout his new solo material. The new album, which serves as a prelude to the successor of the 2013 critically acclaimed microphonics xxi-xxv album, creates a musical universe that bridges the gap between ,vintage" Serries, and the Serries that is constantly searching for new ways to touch the sublime in sounds, harmonies and atmospheres. Unseen Descending And Lamentations is a very personal expression of new musical developments in constant motion.

Brings together two of the most prolific and interesting artists the ambient/drone genre has to offer. For this release, Dirk Serries (Microphonics, VidnaObmana, Continuum, Fear Falls Burning) and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek, DNMF, Piiptsjilling, Shivers, Cloud Ensemble) teamed up to make a hauntingly beautiful album in 4 chapters. Sparse and subtle, but powerful and urgent, these chapters lift up the audience, and keeps them afloat for the entire listening trip. The avant-garde approach of Zuydervelts sound scaping merges brilliantly with Serries minimal and atmospheric pursuit of crafting sounds and ambiences. The result is simply stunning, and leaves one in want of more.

TERZIJ DE HORDE - SELF
The album focuses on the problem of self. Six tracks explore different ways to live, or fail to live, with self and world. They embody the struggles these paths and strategies create: blindness, suffering, a desire for release, the destruction of self and others as well as the turning towards -or away from- life. Self as prison, self as a source of power, self as vessel for manipulation by outside forces, self as shield and as inner world, self as medium for Dionysian rapture, self as something to be overcome. In the six songs that constitute Self, the rage of black metal is paired with a cathartic destruction as well as a contemplative, sometimes crawling melancholy. Instead of navel gazing or the worship of constructs, Self is analysis forced. A cerebral celebration of liberation at all costs and a requiem for spheres rendered apart. The artwork of Self depicts ants, consumed by cordyceps. These parasitic fungi appropriate the brains of whichever host they infect, to manipulate and effectively destroy its self-regulating features. Through this annexation, the ants become empty shells of what they once were, governed by a destruction from within, imposed and irreconcilable.

THISQUIETARMY - ANTHEMS FOR CATHARSIS
Anthems for Catharsis marks the follow up to thisquietarmys last full length studio works "Rebirths", a representative collection of reworked tracks that have defined his purgative live performances. Between back-to-back tours in Europe & Asia and the release of live drone documents as well as collaborative works with Noveller, Aidan Baker/Hypnodrone Ensemble, Andr Foisy/Locrian, Syndrome/Amenra, thisquietarmys Eric Quach went back to the drawing board in his Montreal studio, at the end of 2014. Within the repetitive genre of ambient and drone, thisquietarmy constantly evolves and tries to incorporate new additional textures and structures into the music - for instance, think of the kraut rock shoegaze of "Resurgence", or the post rock doom of "Hex Mountains". However, in other to start fresh and shed skin from exhaustive influences, Quach strips his music down to the black bones. Anthems for Catharsis sounds very focused but also very very dark, not unlike a ritual cleansing or a detoxification. In dismantling his sound, thisquietarmy almost struck a black metal vein, resulting in a dark and brooding ice cold oozing of his signature drones.

ULVEBLOD - OMNIA MORS AEQUAT
Since 2006, Vitriol and M. have been crafting their own, unique version of black metal as Nihill. Internationally recognised as one of the leading bands to combine old school influences with avant-garde experimentation and an almost infuriating, hypnotic repetition. With the passing of singer and founding member M., the cult of Nihill has come to a grinding halt. Main guitarist and producer Vitriol has now created a new vessel for the void, called Ulveblod. The band is using some of the same session players as Nihill did, but with tracks that have all last shreds of sanity and comprehension stripped away. Ulveblod is pure, chaotic channeling of an inner anger and a feeling of senselessness, set to music. The bands' first album 'Omnia Mors Aequat' will be released simultaneously with their debut show on the acclaimed Roadburn Festival 2020, where it will be played integrally and set to a tailor made video accompagnement which will also be executed live... This unique show is surely one of those 'not to be missed' slots on an already stellar line-up! For fans of: Nihill, Gnaw Their Tongues, Teitanblood, Revenge, Nekrasov...

VAN GULICK, JASON - CONCRETE
Jason Van Gulick is one of the most inventive drummers on the contemporary music scene. For more than a decade, he has used his education as an architect to explode the foundations of drumming. Maintaining a distance from all aesthetic, disciplinary or formal limitations, he has developed his artistic approach in the confrontation between the acoustic character of his chosen instrument and architectural resonant spaces. He has performed with Carla Bozulich / Evangelista, for many tour and share stage with Stephen O'Malley (Sunn O)))), Chris Corsano, N.U. Unruh (Einsturzende Neubauten), LE QUAN Ninh, . Apart from that, he is also known for his live band work with for instance Wolvennest, SUM OF R, or his joint performances with for instance CHVE. CONCRETE is the latest result in the exploration of what sounds drums and percussion can produce. Van Gulick has masterfully experimented and crafted a sound that is surprisingly engaging. A dark ambient and drone take on playing the drums. This is an amazing album that will make your jaw drop. This has become an almost unbelievable effort.

VAN WISSEM, JOZEF - EX MORTIS
These new compositions are inspired by 'The Book of Gostlye Grace', which was written by nuns in the convent of Helfta in the 1290's. It depicts an intense religious and even erotic desire to get closer to God. Playing around the dichotomy of eros and thanatos, Van Wissem paints a vivid and engrossing picture. He got the help from Jarboe, Nikolaj Komiagin and Thor to get his take on Ex Mortis come to full fruition. Jozef Van Wissem will extensively tour 2020 to promote Ex Mortis. The idea of Ex Mortis, or 'From Death', is inscribed on the lute used to record this album, and refers to the renaissance of lute music as carried out by Van Wissem. All compositions by Jozef Van Wissem With Guests: Jarboe (Swans), Thor (Swans), Nikolaj Komiagin (Shortparis). "Both an avant-garde composer and a baroque lutenist, and thus no stranger to dichotomy." - New York Times "Pushing the lute's agenda out of the academy and into more accessible circles." - Pitchfork

WIEGEDOOD - DE DODEN HEBBEN HET GOED
The band members have proven their worth in acts like Amenra, Oathbreaker, Hessian, Rise and Fall. an interesting gathering of musicians that immediately raises high expectations - they deliver. Against all expectations, the result of this collaboration has nothing to do with post metal, sludge or hardcore - Wiegedood treats us to a relentless onslaught of atmospheric black metal. The music might be categorized in vein of the cascadian black metal wave from the US. They bring their European twist into the mix. De Doden Hebben Het Goed, a debut album of what you can hardly call a debuting band - the title covers the album perfectly: a bleak take on extreme metal music. But it never loses touch with the band members' other projects. For fans of: Amenra, Oathbreaker, Hessian, Rise and Fall, Wolves in the Throne Room, Ash Borer, Skagos, Fell Voices, Altar of Plagues.

WIEGEDOOD - DE DODEN HEBBEN HET GOED II
After the release of the critically acclaimed De Doden Hebben het Goed, Wiegedood didnt exactly lay low. Not only did the band tour Europe extensively, they also got together to compose their follow-up album De Doden Hebben het Goed II whilst being in the flow of playing together for numerous nights in a row. The organic feeling of playing the music live certainly found its way into the sound of the band. You can expect everything that was brilliant about the debut album, but more concise, compact, and precise. Over a relative short span of time, Wiegedood certainly developed a sound of its own within the atmospheric black metal lexicon. This sound is extended to the second installment of De Doden Hebben het Goed, but with a fresh and urgent ferociousness added to the mix. A monster album. And thats a promise.

YODOK III - A DREAMER ASCENDS
YODOK III excels as a live band. The strong reputation they have is thanks to the sophisticated structure of their long live epics, the intense dynamics and homogenous group sounds they know to create on stage. It is not a surprise that "A Dreamer Ascends" is only their 3rd album after 7 years. This album was recorded in 2017, in the Ora Studio in Trondheim, Norway. But to distil an album made up of 3 hours of music is not an easy task. "A Dreamer Ascends" is a super tightly clenched album in which their YODOK III's organic sounds plays a central role. The album is not exactly a long sophisticated composition of their live concerts, but as a listener you receive an album that blossoms, with a raw edge, but full off intensity, grainy sound layers and a pulsing rhythm. For fans of: Dirk Serries, Ulver, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, MNHM, The Use of Ashes
