In the winter of 2015, two weeks after the release of "Bringer of Plague" (2015), the band supports INQUISITION in St. Petersburg. At the end of April 2015, Isvind leaves Mora Prokaza and furious drummer Hatestorm joins the band commencing the recording of new material. With the addition of Hatestorm, Mora Prokazaopen up new opportunities and the band change their composing approach and sound concept. In May 2015 the musicians present their brand-new EP "My Awakening" shorty followed by a new full-length "Dark Universe" (2016).
Now with Season of Mist by their side, Mora Prokazawill introduce you to something new. The Russians are exploring brand new musical territories which are promised to be "Blacker than Black"!
All hail the unnerving New School Black Metal wave of Mora Prokaza.
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.

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.

Belarusian atmospheric black metal unit Raven Throne is returning with their sixth album "I Miortvym Snicca Zolak" on May 02, 2018 via Dutch Label Non Serviam Records.
Decibel Magazine unfolds the premiere of the second track "Pole cicha šaptała kałossiem..." from the upcoming album, which is based on poems from the beginning of the 20th century. Listen to it RIGHT HERE.
"With lyrics and music based on and inspired by Slavic poetry, I Miortvym Snicca Zolak enfolds the listener in a blinding maelstrom of spellbinding riffs, weightless but imbued with that special brand of Eastern European melancholy that makes bands from that part of the world so singular, and so irresistible." — Dutch Pearce, Decibel Magazine
The Band informs: “The song “Pole cicha šaptała kałossiem” is taken from the poem (having the same title) of Michas Charot — the Belarusian poet, playwright and writer who was shot in the framework of the repression, committed by the Soviet leaders in October, 1937. Michas dedicated this to Tishke Gartnoy (real name Dmitry Fyodorovich Zhilunovich), another prominent poet from Belarus. The poem fits perfectly into the music of Raven Throne, thus forming one of the most powerful and piercing tracks from this album.”
Belarusian Black Metallers Raven Throne sign with Non Serviam Records; 6th Album "I Miortvym Snicca Zolak" out May 02
Emerged from the ancient city Polotsk in 2004, Belarusian band Raven Throne is having 05 LPs and an EP in its amassment. The short lived first line-up collapsed after a few shows, the guitarist Chernotur (aka Dzianis Lukianovich, Thy Wings) kept the flame alive with War Head, who joined the band as a bass player in 2005. Encountering several line-up changes, the main core of the band had been formed in the person of Chernotur and War Head since then. During 2005 and 2006 RAVEN THRONE was a studio project, until Ingwar Winterheart (aka Galdor) joined the band. The first records were made at that time.
Raven Throne had no drummer until 2011 and played under drum machine, but they released 03 magnificent albums till then. The band has become more active since 2014, started playing small and big festivals/gigs on regular basis. The current drummer Green Skin joined the band in 2015. The band shared stages with some prestigious local and international bands, including legendary Polish death metal troop Vader.
05th album «By the Path of the Forgotten» was released in 2016 via Possession Productions. The record was made by Chernotur and War Head as usual. In April 2016, the new line-up was renewed. Zergved Hellersatan (ex-KAIRA) became new vocalist. Raven Throne supported Rotting Christ on their Minsk gig during the world tour in December 2017.
Upcoming album "I Miortvym Snicca Zolak" will be out May 02nd via Non Serviam Records on digipak. Raven Throne invites you to an odyssey in the splendor of the Slavic nature, which is based on poems from the beginning of the 20th century. The bands from the east Slavic countries can invent the supreme atmosphere that darkens the music with deep melancholy and Raven Throne is the perfect example to illustrate this tendency.
First single and the Pre-order will be available very soon.
