AVE MARIA "Chapter I" digicd (13.00,-) (***-2011-AAP) Chapter I - a riotously swaying, inward spinning spiral - is a trippy journey making its outer spheres reach the banishing of the oath, locking the mind and moaning in lust and holy treachery. The smell of brimstone lingers in the air whilst the inner circles of the vortex glisten in the source of light. The contact is lost inside a devouring whirl of confrontation while the form is collapsing and the spiral reaches the never-seen. Psyched-out yet focused Black Metal. Debut album. http://airameva.bandcamp.com/

MOURNFUL CONGREGATION "The Monad Of Creation" cd (12.00,-) (***-2005-Weird Thruth Productions-WT017) "The long wait is finally over with incredible pleasure(depression?!). Long awaited their 2nd album is finally unleashed to this world of the hopeless! Extreme slowness and heaviness bring depression to the depth of your mind. Layered sorrowful melodies make your tears shed from your eyes. They deliver 4 sorrowful hymns here to make you mourn. First 2 songs are their typical tunes, very emotional and dramatic. When you listen to guitar solo of the end part of "As I Drowning In Loveless Rain", you can´t control the grief rising in your mind. Next one "When The Weeping Dawn Beheld Its Mortal Thirst" brings you 10 minutes rest with beautiful acoustic guitar melodies. Then the last track "The Monad of Creation" starts in solemn mood. Gradually sorrowful emotions are unleashed, apocalypse comes to an end... Definitely, this is the new bible of mournful doom established by high musicianship!" AAP recommends!
OBSCURE ANACHRONISM "Transcending Mundane Obstacles" cd (12.00,-) (***-2007-AAP) Four tracks of trance-inducing Black Metal -performed with utmost passion and dedication- proclaming the despise to the ill-fated lives yet acknowledging the own succumb to the all-devouring essence of deterioration. Transcending Mundane Obstacles isn´t a recording which offers an easy walkthrough (although the first impressions might give an opposite feeling). To gain and reach the very essence of Obscure Anachronism, one must be willing to give his complete attention and concentration for TMO and it will not be in vain. "Finally even the ignorant and the blind have been capable to perceive the fire, which has been blazing behind the misty veil of time ever since the creation."

Om Ram Rahve Namah! http://www.ahdistuksenaihio.com/rahusample.mp3
SATURNIAN MIST "Gnostikoi Ha-Shaitan" digicd (13.00,-) (***-2011-AAP) "Unholy journey of satanic arts and devotion compelling both intelligence and irrationality by stretching the edges way beyond the world of man. Borne in serious contemplation, Saturnian Mist´s debut album provides holistic contiguity between esoteric black metal and occult philosophy. The booklet of the album is accompanied by a collection of journal writings and notes more or less involved in the creation of the
Gnostikoi Ha-Shaitan. Maybe someone can learn, achieve or understand something from them together with the lyrics, music & visual creations of the album, or use the collection as an independent pageant of Occult philosophy in practice." http://www.saturnianmist.net/
SEPULCHRAL AURA "Demonstrational CD MMVII" demo cd (5.00,-) (***-2007-AAP) Not often it´s possible to come across as convincing demo recording as Sepulchral Aura´s Demo MMVII. Intensity, lunacy and bestiality are accompanied with deeply philosophical, esoteric and occult approach. The member behind Sepulchral Aura, J.Partanen, has evoked more than remarkable recording in the Black/Death Metal history. Pro-printed cd. http://sepulchralaura.blackmetal.fi/
SLAVE´S MASK "Faustian Electronics & Bruise Poetry" digicd (13.00,-) (***-2006-AAP) As a counterbalance to raw black metal releases, years of delays and several drawbacks, AAP has finally the honour to present the debut album of SlaveÂ´s Mask "Faustian Electronics & Bruise Poetry". Kaarna and SG.7 have poured an absinth-odorish coctail FE&BP into a glass ready to drink, using the finest elements of their several artistic works in the mixture of the potion, consisting of nine organic, polished, pounding and pulsating semen injections to the rubbercunt underlining the attraction not to life, but to its exceeded rate. As a sugar at the bottom of the glass, the quaff has been decorated with luxurious six-panel digipack with four lyric cards, thus making it even more irresistable to devour this deceitful drink down the throat. Goat has many ways. For you to walk.
TODESSTOSS "Beutetrieb Schwarzer Witwen" mcd (8.00,-) (***-2005-AAP) Raw, surrealistic Black Metal. Fragments of Martin Lang´s tainted inner soul forced into audible format. Although sharing some convergences with Burzum and some certain Les Legions Noire bands, Todesstoss hasn´t any limitations or compromises in their expression. If you´re familiar with the Todesstoss´ previous mcd, "Spiegel der Urängste", you might know what kind of vortex of feelings you´ll be dragged and drowned into. Purpose of the mcd is either to leave the listener to yearn for more after the spinning stops...or be soaked in the sand of bloody beaches... "Music of the lonely one is always purer."
W.A.I.L. "S/T" cd (12.00,-) (***-2011-AAP) Conceptualized around the letters of the acronymic band moniker, W.A.I.L. (Wisdom through Agony into Illumination and Lunacy), the debut album of this Finnish band delves through a five piece journey of murky and crushing soundscapes. On this first part of self-titled full-lengths, W.A.I.L. explains its meaning from a wholly personal perspective. The exceptional name accompanies exceptional music and therefore W.A.I.L. gives a mouth to something that absorbs conventions of black, death, doom & heavy metal - but the entity speaks with only one unique voice and that voice does speak indeed, because the wine of Satan has got them drunk. The cd version has an improved mastering & layout. The official shipping date is 7th March.

RIDE FOR REVENGE "The King of Snakes" LP (16.00,-) (***-2007-AAP) Heaviest and darkest black metal ritual emerging from Finland! Imagine extremely down tuned version of the slowest Beherit tracks and you might come close but still a decent amount of originality is added to the mixture. Suffocating guitar & bass sound roars in depths, while stiff and heavy drumming, obscure echoing voice and occasional keyboards and effects deliver the final touch for this masterpiece. Don´t expect standard or generic copycat so common in the scene, Ride For Revenge is ready to crush with an authentic dark cruelty! Re-press, identical with the first pressing. http://ahdistuksenaihio.com/rfrtkossample.mp3
RIDE FOR REVENGE "The Renegade Temple" 7" (6.50,-) (***-2008/2-AAP) Bestial ecstasy, primitive barbarism, ritual occultism; that´s what the first 7" from these Finnish goat shepherds is all about. Musically the content comes close to the first full length, paying respect to the traditions set by the masters yet following the own distinguishable path. Re-press.
SATURNIAN MIST "Repellings" mLP (13.00,-) (***-2011-AAP) 27 minutes and three psalms of possessed harangue with revolting ascension, atrocious woe & convoyed demonic embrace; where all attempts to understand shall drown into the everlasting chaos while Luciferian truth shines simultaneously through every putrid and impure being without a single word or a form. One sided mLP, re-mastered audio. http://www.saturnianmist.net
SPEKTR "Mescalyne" 10" (10.00,-) (2008-AAP/Debemur Morti) "The mysterious duo returns with 23 minutes of distilled chaos, where manic fury and swarming intensity are regulated and channelled in SPEKTR´s inimitable trademark style. On their first-ever mini-album, the fearless Frenchmen conjure a frightening and twisted vision, utilising regimental discipline and an uncanny appreciation of mood manipulation to create a stark yet alluring atmosphere. Wickedly warped and contorted, "Mescalyne" is one of those perverse pleasures capable of unsettling your mind whilst simultaneously enriching your spirit. A heaving hybrid of raw Black Metal and harsh industrial ambience pulls the listener into a deep vortex of swirling energies where all is one and one is all. Somehow the creators bind disparate sounds seamlessly to deliver a unique, atypical work of stringent, structured obscurity."
SPEKTR "Near Death Experience" LP (15.00,-) (2008-AAP/Debemur Morti) "With the release of their second album, “The Near Death Experience”, this two-member band are bound to excite, confuse but ultimately impress any fan of the unusual. Surely black metal in nature, Spektr combine sounds unlike any other. It’s a harsh, disturbing, raw in all matter of sense, but one that is still highly complex and sophisticated within a low-fi environment. Much like friends and label mates Blut Aus Nord, Spektr buck all musical notions." Comes with 180g. white vinyl, printed innersleeves and 30x30cm 12-page booklet.
