Belarusian symphonic metal duo Belle Morte sign with Wormholedeath and announce debut album "Crime of Passion"
Belarusian Symphonic Metal duo Belle Morte have signed a deal with Wormholedeath for the release of their debut album "Crime Of Passion".
Bella Morte shares their feelings:
"We are extremely proud to share that we have signed with WormHoleDeath label, and our first full length album “Crime of Passion” will be released soon. This is a big step for us, as we’ve spent over 2 years crafting it track by track. Compared with our debut EP, “Crime of Passion” has a way darker sound and vibes and more complicated arrangements with multiple influences. We believe we’ve advanced musically, and signing with WormHoleDeath will help us reach more people. We are thrilled to become a part of the family and can’t wait to see how it goes!"
And about the album:
"The album is called “Crime of Passion’ and it’s inspired by John Fowles’s novel “The Collector”. It tells a coherent story which started as an unhealthy obsession and stalking and resulted in murder, both from the side of the murderer and his victim. The idea of having a full-length album appeared when we were working on the EP. We had enough material for it at that moment, but at the same time didn’t want to rush and really wanted it to be well-thought and professional, so it took us 2 years to complete it. In general “Crime of Passion” has a way darker sound and vibes, compared to our first EP “Game on”. The story we tell here doesn’t have a happy ending, so you are witnessing how the situation unfolds, getting more and more intense and having a tragic finale.
Musically “Crime of Passion” has more complicated arrangements, a lot of djent/progressive and even some black metal elements and a very diverse material. For example, “Beauty meant to kill” doesn’t have guitars at all, relying heavily on powerful symphonic parts with electronic instruments and percussion. “If only you knew” has a lot of prog metal and some djent elements. Guitars became heavier and more sophisticated, especially in “My Little Demon” and “Beauty and the Beast”. We are using a lot of different elements on the “Crime of passion” and we made it all sound consistent and not trivial at the same time. Each element used reveals different nuances, making it all sound like a mono rock-opera, with leitmotivs and instrumental parts, which are there not for the sake of being there, but for the sake of strengthening presence effect, shedding more light on the emotions of the characters."
Belle Morte is a musical project from Belarus, Minsk, playing dark symphonic metal with gothic / progressive flavour and melancholic vibe. The first single “Mercy” was released on Dec 9, 2017, accompanied by a music video later on. Debut band’s EP “Game On” was released in 2018. 4 tracks listed on the EP have asymmetric songwriting structure and jarring dynamic jumps from balladry to metallic symphonic bluster. Later on, Belle Morte collaborated with Norwegian melodic death metal band “Addendum” and released “Mistakable Monster” single together.
The song is about trying to find back to the ones you have loved and lost. A tale about two sisters, locked in different worlds. After EP the band focused on producing a full-length conceptual album inspired by John Fowles’s “The Collector”. During this period “My Legacy”, “To Get Her” and “Lace” singles were released. The second Belle Morte’s music video was shot for the “Lace” single. Album named “Crime of Passion” tells a coherent story which started as an unhealthy obsession and stalking and resulted in murder, both from the side of the murderer and his victim.
The idea behind Belle Morte is playing on contrasts – in music, lyrics and visual imaginary. It’s about seeing its own beauty in disturbing things, ugly things, and, vice versa, seeing the bad side in nice things which might not be that obvious at the first sight.
Extreme Belarusian Avant Garde duo Mora Prokaza are now releasing the third brand new track taken from their forthcoming album 'By Chance'. The album is scheduled for release on July 3rd, 2020. The new offering 'I'm Not Yours' can now be viewed via HERE!
Welcome to the unnerving and anger driven world of MORA PROKAZA where madness reigns! Just like MORA PROKAZA, the upcoming new opus ‘By Chance’ cannot be contained nor be put in one single musical category. A mixture between Avant Garde Black Metal meets New School Trap, integrated with the Belarusian arts roots that lay so deep within.
The band with the cunning name MORA PROKAZA was formed back in 2013 by Farmakon (guitars, vocals) and Isvind (drums). Both musicians have a long-term experience of playing in many local Belarusian extreme metal bands. The material for the first release “Bringer of Plague” was quickly composed and released in early 2015 and with that, MORA PROKAZA shared Russian stages with bands such as HELL SPIRIT, SUSPERIA, DARKEND, CLAYMORDS, MORIBUND OBLIVION and many others. In the winter of 2015, the band even supported INQUISITION in St. Petersburg (RU).
Shortly after the release of their debut album, Isvind leaves MORA PROKAZA and furious drummer Hatestorm joins the band commencing the recording of new material. With the addition of Hatestorm, the band opened up for new opportunities and In May 2015 the musicians present a brand-new EP "My Awakening" shorty followed by a new full-length "Dark Universe" (2016).
In 2018 MORA PROKAZA completely changed their approach to composing and sound concept and with the release of the single ‘Blacker than Black’, the band reinvented themselves with great feedback from fans all around the world. The band set out for new musical horizons and started recording a brand-new full length after signing a deal with Season of Mist.
Take what you will from ‘By Chance’. The underlying aggression in its purest form or perhaps the philosophical glance towards spiritual growth. In the end, WIMG?
Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of new school black metal formation Mora Prokaza. The Belarusian duo are currently in studio writing their brand new album which will be released in 2020 via Season of Mist.
Mora Prokaza comment on the signing:-
"We came here to continue making our music with new powers. Nothing is more important than the continuation of the creation of powerful compositions. Now, with Season of Mist, we are opening a new chapter in our works. Our main joint task is not to betray art and show that in the modern world we all can hear the new black metal and new forms of metal music. "

Belarusian instrumental black metal trio Krvvla is about to release their new (maxi) single on July 5, 2019. Pre-order launched - http://smarturl.it/krvvla. Keeping true to the tradition of one-letter album titles, the band named their upcoming track "T". This is Krvvla’s 5th release since their formation in 2015. The track features a mixture of black and death metal that sounds more like a dialogue between the two subgenres rather than their fusion.
Check out the teaser right now:- https://youtu.be/9krr7y6-H1k
Krvvla is a three-piece instrumental black metal band based in Minsk, Belarus. Formed in 2015, the band has already released 4 EPs and shared the stage with such bands as Hexis, Wiegedood, Celeste, and Furia. Even though they've been playing together for only 4 years, each of the band members has at least a decade of experience in playing in various local bands (Crown For the Rat King, Coat, Barrow, Sen Deni, Scenario, Challenger Deep).
Instrumental progressive metal band Essence Of Datum have teamed up with No Clean Singing to premiere the music video for the song "Pendulum". The track has been taken from the band's upcoming record "Spellcrying Machine", to be released via Season of Mist on August 30th.
Check out the video at No Clean Singing at the link below:
Essence Of Datum comment:-
"One of the favourite buildings in our home town is Minsk city crematorium! The comprehension of the fact that there's a very high probability that our physical presence in this world will end up there and the bodies will be committed to flames, puts a veil of peculiar magic on this place. Walking in the halls of crematorium you cannot but notice giant pendulums that stand still symbolizing frozen time. It is the pendulum that gives more emphasis to the present before the inevitable end to come thus leaving us greedily gasping for the moments remaining. The pendulum in 'Spellcrying Machine' holds a special place and we'd like to set off a story with this composition. Until then, let the Pendulum swing!"
One does not always need words to convey a story. If there’s anything that instrumental progressive metal duo Essence Of Datum proves, it’s that the power of music can do just that. ‘Spellcrying Machine’, the band’s third full-length, is set for an August release on Season of Mist and is bound to open up their creation to a wider audience.
Essence Of Datum was formed by guitarist Dmitry Ramanouski in 2011 in Minsk, Belarus. After recording the first demos, the musician was joined by drummer Pavel Vilchytski who quickly became an irreplaceable part of the band as the man behind the machine-gun rhythm section.
From the very beginning, the project was meant to be purely instrumental, thus not giving the listener verbal or lexical means to comprehend or interpret the conceptual universe of the music. Providing fans with mere hints hidden in the artwork and track titles, the musicians challenge the listener to use their own imagination to explore the universe that Essence Of Datum created. Each album is part of a larger, fictional universe and ultimately, everything is bound together in one single story.
In 2013, the journey set off with the release of debut album 'Event Horizon.' the duo paint there a picture of a surrealistic world by means of soaring guitar melodies and groovy rhythms with an unbelievable technical precision. The second full-length 'Nevermore' (2017) opened a new chapter in which the Essence Of Datum universe was tainted by war, struggle, and fear, transformed by the band into powerful songs with melodic grace.
Set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world, the band’s third record, 'Spellcrying Machine', synthesizes the best of extreme, modern metal into an elegant and articulate whole.Essence Of Datum invites you to explore their universe.

, Iron Bonehead Productions sets August 23rd as the international release date for Pa Vesh En's highly anticipated second album, Pyrefication, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
In little more than two years, this Belarusian enigma has built a sizeable (and starkly terrifying) catalog, culminating in last year's critically acclaimed Church of Bones debut album and, earlier this year, the Cryptic Rites of Necromancy EP, all under the aegis of Iron Bonehead. Thus far, Pa Vesh En has exhibited a stark 'n' unsettling style of black metal: from stifled-violence miserabilism to seemingly formless drift, from bent-askew melodicism to echo-chamber murk, always with a tortured soul guiding everything, he's almost effortlessly created a sound-world beyond compare - and has done so with the restlessness of a lost spectre.
Restless as ever, Pa Vesh En prodigiously keeps apace with his tortured vision of black metal with a brand-new second album, Pyrefication. Ever aptly titled, Pyrefication is total spiritual meltdown: this is the veritable sound of the soul collapsing inward and dying a most exquisite death. To that, Pa Vesh En draws inspiration from within, and here locates a wobbly, ever-so-delicate balance between Cryptic Rites of Necromancy's ultra-violent hysteria and the murkier mystery of his earliest work, all done with spellbinding alchemy that makes for a miasmic 40-minute labyrinth. If anything, Pa Vesh En seems unsettlingly comfortable taking his muse wherever he wishes on Pyrefication, malforming and maiming any atmosphere he wishes whilst maintaining that beckoning-abyssward style of melodicism he's made his own since his auspicious start.
Once again, Pa Vesh En hands you the matches for self-immolation - will you provide the kindling for Pyrefication? The first fire can be felt with the new track "Call of the Dead" HERE at Iron Bonehead's Soundcloud.
Iron Bonehead Productions sets October 12th as the international release date for Pa Vesh En's highly anticipated debut album, Church of Bones, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
2018 has already been an extremely busy year for Pa Vesh En. In the span of six months, this singular 'n' shadowy entity from Belarus released through Iron Bonehead the Dead Womb demo, the two-song A Ghost 7", and a split album with Temple Moon. Each step of the way, Pa Vesh En has exhibited a stark 'n' unsettling style of black metal. From stifled-violence miserabilism to seemingly formless drift, from bent-askew melodicism to echo-chamber murk, always with a tortured soul guiding everything, he's almost effortlessly created a sound-world beyond compare - and has done so with the restlessness of a lost spectre.
Now arrives Church of Bones, proving with no small amount of finality that Pa Vesh En is creating some of the most mysterious and vital black metal of modern times. At seven songs spanning 37 minutes, Church of Bones feels far more vast than its otherwise-compact runtime suggests. If the preceding split with Temple Moon marked a momentous shift toward total and utter desolation, then Pa Vesh En dives deepest - and equally, both in manner and quality - into both the fog and the murk here, further developing that malodorous melodicism that likewise crept forth on the split.
Returning to misery and comfort (and the comfort of misery), the long 'n' languorous landscapes laid out across Church of Bones beckon the listener in a most seductive manner, all before those cursed tendrils ensnare the subconscious and suck it dry, any last semblance of hope extinguished. This celestial drift-unto-descent feels somewhat familiar in the grand scheme of black metal which uses rawness as a weapon, and yet there's that elusive X-factor (or, literally, just literal elusiveness) that makes Pa Vesh En sound completely and utterly ALIEN.
Either way, Pa Vesh En has triumphed with the masterful Church of Bones, truly finding his voice and singing the most damned songs. Will you enter that church and join in the choir? Dare to step forward with the new track "Pale Body Desecration" HERE at Iron Bonehead's Soundcloud.

At the forefront of slam, Belarusian quartet Extermination Dismemberment are leading up the charge and have revealed a brand new single and video just days before embarking to headline the Slamming Annihilation Tour across Europe. Sure to cement an already rock solid reputation, 'Omnivore' is a weighted track of mammoth proportions and offers a mere glimpse of the impending aural assault due from the bands third full length album in the near future.
Listen To 'Omnivore' Here! - https://youtu.be/bXHbPyYxuoE
The band comments:-
"Guts, blood and meat. 'Omnivore' continues the main concept of the band's whole material and appears as a connection point between the old and the upcoming stuff. The track is based on classic riffs of slamming brutal death metal. No melody, no calmness. Two and a half minutes of complete destruction. The composition gives us nothing but heaviness, which is our main priority."
Extermination Dismemberment is a slamming brutal death metal band from Minsk, Belarus. The band's current lineup includes Arseniy Kovalchuk (guitar), Vladislav Martirosov (vocals), Viktor Kanashevich (bass) and Denis Poluyan (drums). The band was founded in October 2009 by guitarist Arseniy Kovalchuk and vocalist Valeriy Kozhemyako. They started working on the debut album at once. During the process, the band found two more members: Viktor Kanashevich (bass) and Vladislav Martirosov (drums). Valeriy Kozhemyako left the band in 2013 and was replaced by the band's drummer Vladislav Martirosov in 2016. Soon after that Denis Poluyan joined the band on drums.
The band's debut album Butcher Basement was released in December 2010 by the Ukrainian label Imbecil Entertainment Records. Having started actively playing shows, Extermination Dismemberment immediately started writing new material and three years after their debut album, on May 27th 2013, the second full-length album Serial Urbicide was released by the famous Japanese label Amputated Vein Records. Immediately after the release, Serial Urbicide collected a lot of positive reviews and became album of the year according to SBDC. To this day, Serial Urbicide stays in fans' playlists and continues to gather new audiences around the world.
