Swedish Symphonic Black metal DSBM band Mist Of Misery is back with a new EP Shackles Of Life
Shackles Of Life and Fields Of Isolation were written and recorded during 2016 in studio Forlorn Halls and on various private locations around Stockholm.
The band comments: "The themes on both EP's vary quite a lot from our earlier works, but the original concept of Mist Of Misery is still there. Those who have heard our latest release, Absence, will surely find some similarities to both that album and also to our earlier releases."
The EP features guest vocals from Paolo Bruno of Thy Light and Georg of Coldworld. Artwork was done by talented Russian artist Alex Tartsus. Link

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.
