Russian black metallers Khashm have premiereed the new track "Obsidian Keys" at Decibel magazine's website. The track hails from the band's highly anticipated fourth album, Asmodeus Rising, set for international release on May 26th via Iron Bonehead Productions on vinyl LP format with bonus 7" EP. Hear Khashm's "Obsidian Keys" in its entirety exclusively HERE.
One of black metal's best-kept secrets, Khashm belong to the inner circle of Russia's True Ingrian Black Metal Death. As such, the sound they've patiently crafted for nearly a decade bears a tangibly gnarly physicality contrasted by an almost-levitational aspect: truly, an alchemical melding of aggression and atmosphere.
Asmodeus Rising is arguably Khashm's most complete and engrossing work yet. At five songs on the main LP and a bonus 7" featuring two new bonus tracks, the near-50 minutes comprising Asmodeus Rising exhibit a haunting spirit that's at once wholly modern and authentically ancient. Traces of the most orthodox black metal both past and present are taken and twisted into garish 'n' grimy shapes, and often buttressed by medieval organ. The production is full and filthy, never sacrificing the sanguine in its search for cobwebbed clarity. Khashm even exhibit the sonic nous to tackle fully fledged dark ambient for the main LP's climactic, catacombed end. Asmodeus Rising, indeed...

Up-and-coming extreme metal label The Artisan Era is proud to announce the signing of Dark Matter Secret, a talented instrumental progressive death metal project started by guitarist and composer Denis Shvarts and fretless bassist Pavel Semin.

Hailing from Russia, the instrumental trio (with members of Arkona and Irreversible Mechanism) bring forth something fresh to the table with their truly progressive death metal sound.

Originating from Moscow Russia, Pokerface were formed in 2013. Following line-up changes the band overcame the obstacles of establishing themselves in the female fronted metal scene and are now releasing their 3rd studio album “Game On” this March 2017. With a unique style reminiscent of bands like Arch Enemy and Kreator the band has shared the stage with the likes of Slayer, Testament and Sodom amongst many others. Their music is characterised by heavy riffs and a combination of clean and brutal vocals.
"Game On” is not your ordinary album; It consists of 10 tracks in line with the core theme of ‘chance’.
The album provides an insight into how we deal with opportunities and how we face our inner fears. It is inspired by the concept of self development and that the easiest choice is not always the right choice.
The hero of the album does not ‘break’ in light of social pressure and chooses the high road , the path less taken. Now trapped in a whirlpool of greed, fear and betrayal his problems surface as monsters which pursue him into the depths of his subconscious. He plays with fire and the demons inside him lead him to the loss of everything he has earned throughout his life. Trapped in a labyrinth with no beginning and no exit the realisation that our very own person is the route to salvation does not come as a surprise. The album communicates to the listener that until we remember who we really are our demons will haunt us until we take control of our own destiny and live as autonomous individuals.

Emerald Mind plays a unique mixture of power and progressive metal with one of the most professional female vocalists on the Russian metal scene Svetlana Vysotskaya.
The band released a new video for the song “Astronaut In Her Space” from their second album “Civilization”. This song draws parallels between the depths of the universe and a human mind. One person explores the other one like a spaceship, drifting among the space. Anyway even if you are far from philosophy you can just enjoy powerful riffs, catchy melodies and exceptional vocal of beautiful Svetlana!

Russian Atmospheric / Depressive Black metal band Taiga are streaming their third studio album 'Sky' that was released on September 16th via Symbol of Domination, a sub-label of Satanath Records. The album tells the story about those moments in life when people are aware of their own insignificance and can not overcome the emotional pain. Everyday is torture for them, loneliness guards their cage where they feel there is no escape. In hope of change, they turn their eyes to the sky.

Taiga was founded in the Siberian city of Tomsk by Nikolai Seredov from the thrash band "Стахановцы" (Stakhanovtsi) and the funeral doom band "Funeral Tears" along with Andrey Chernov, guitarist of the military / martial industrial metal band "Panzertank". In December 2013, they released their first two songs, "За чертой" and "На битом стекле", which marked the beginning of the project. People suffering from mental disorders caused by public misunderstanding, undivided love and their own weakness are the main influence in Taiga's lyrics. In January 2014, Taiga released their the first EP called "Ты всё ещё дышишь" (You Are Still Breathing), which was immediately followed by another EP in February 2014, entitled "Прах к праху" (Ashen To Ashen).
With great feedback on their EPs, Taiga revealed their debut full length "Ashen Light" during March 2014. The album featured new arranged tracks from the first two EPs and was co-released by labels Satanath Record, Metallic Media and and Le Crépuscule Du Soir Productions. In 2015, they released their second album "Gaia" via labels Symbol Of Domination and Metallic Media. In 2016, band recruited Aleksey "Satanath" Korolyov as their keyboardist / ambient sound maker to add to their mystic atmosphere. Quick Note: Andrei Chernov was not involved in the recording of the new album 'Sky', but is still involved as a member of the band.
