5x New – week 35

In anticipation of their upcoming long-awaited debut album ThORnMENThORn, set to be released this September 14th in collaboration with Loud Rage Music, Oradea based DECAY, one of the oldest Romanian Extreme Metal bands still in activity, reveals their new video
This release is made after a long break in which ElisaDay were facing a serious transformation in their approach to making music and performance. The band would even say “the release was waiting for us to grow up to be finished”. You will meet your best expectations of what symphonic metal should sound like.
 
The lyrics are all about emotions people can face when they struggle to realize who they really are and how have they got to that point.
‘Kalahari’ is the opening track on ‘All Becomes Desert’, an album of improvised analogue soundscapes by London based musician and composer Ian Williams that evokes the hostile beauty of the most spectacularly empty places on earth. The velvety warm, undulating tones of his Roland Juno 106 provide a perfect setting for the meditative sonic backdrop of the piece.
Dust Mountain was founded in 2016 by siblings Toni Hietamäki (Oranssi Pazuzu, Waste of Space Orchestra) and Henna Hietamäki (Cats of Transnistria, Henna & Houreet). The sisters are accompanied by an exceptional band: drummer Jukka Rämänen (Hexvessel, Dark Buddha Rising) bassist Riku Pirttiniemi (Death Hawks) and guitarist/backing vocalist Pauliina Lindell (Vuono). 
MITOCHONDRIAL SUN’s core of the music is an electronic and instrumental affair, that ranges from quiet meditations on space and time to relentless cosmic storms; from a sonic journey into fast, urgent and chaotic songs of the bleakest black metal sound, yet MITOCHONDRIAL SUN is full of emotionally charged melodies and atmospheric soundscapes lurking beneath the surface. Falling somewhere in between the contemplative and moody debut album and the intense Sju Pulsarer successor, each song – from the cinematic and slow moving opener to the industrial full-throttle closing track – differs a lot from each other in style, but share the same vibe: Dystopian and cold, yet organic and occasionally hopeful.
