The listener will go on a certain extraordinary journey, turning into wanderers of different dimensions. According to authors, this trip symbolizes a roam in quest of light in the time-worn world, leading to rebirth not only of people, but also of the Planet. “Transcendental Trip” incarnates acquisition of demiurgical power in the consciousness of a man, who waded through a long and complicated path, heading towards a long-awaited insight.

The new release of Mizantropia narrates all about the acuteness of feelings and emotions experienced by us during our life and at the same time about theirs inevitable dilatory withering with the course of time.

JOINTSTEREO "Circles. EP" 2015 /NEW/
(Atmospheric Progressive Post-Metal/Rock)
Debut EP by Russian Atmospheric Progressive Post-Metal/Rock band.
Jointstereo was always known to avoid narrow stylistic niches, whatsoever. The extensive musical exposure and wide range of musical likes help Jointestereo make the music “on the go”; hence their stylistic diversity of music. This helps Jointstereo avoid self-copicatting and release diverse material without giving up on the signature mood, atmosphere and style. The style of this band can be described as Atmospheric Rock with Progressive elements, approximate to the Post-Metal.
Lyrics mostly deal with the dark states of mind, based on religious and philosophical views and scientific theories thus going way beyond personal feelings and self-reflections.
Conceptually, record sessions were all about achieving live and natural sound; hence the Rock legends of the past, used as a go-by during mastering and the numerous analogue devices in the record path. The release therefore can be viewed as an eclectic and post-modernistic one (in a good sense of this word).
Highly recommended for fans of: Katatonia, Anathema, Callisto, The Ocean, and Ghost Brigade!
VARANG NORD “Fire Of The North” 2015 /NEW/
The debut mini-album by Latvian Folk Metal band.

The album was inspired by such bands as: Amon Amarth, Fintroll (music) and Skyforger (lyrics). The main theme of the album is the culture of the people of North and North-East Europe.
"Fire Of The North" deviates from the accentuated Epic Folk Metal, bringing to the genre rigidity, straightness and Nordic severity. Hunting, ale, blood and war - this is the atmosphere that accompanies the album from beginning to end, that must please fans of evil and truly Pagan Metal!!
DAN DEAGH WEALCAN "Who Cares What Music Is Playing In My Headphones?" 2015 /NEW/

(Modern Heavy Metal)
First EP by Russian Modern Heavy Metal band.
On the eve of its fourth full-length album Druknroll decided to please their fans with two new tracks and a cover-song of In Flames!
... And here you are again, with grandma at the Philharmonic - on piano concert by P. I. Koniakovski. It takes a few seconds and a huge thrash gush of speed heavy guitar-bass-drum-keys pressure sweeps everything in its path and the powerful vocals only enhance this chaos! And somewhere nearby heard granny’s hellscream: "Enough rockin'!!!"...
The mixture of high-speed styles – Symphonic, Melodic, Progressive, Alternative, Thrash, MDM... etc. Speed Metal organically interlaces with the melodic choir choruses and your brain wants to burst out; you open your eyes and... theatre sees you out with last notes of a symphonic orchestra.
Very positive music in general, really fresh and extraordinary style, by one word - the Light Metal!
For fans of such bands as: Children Of Bodom, Soilwork, Mercenary, Degradead, Dark Tranquillity, Svartstorm and especially In Flames!!
