Digital release: The Happiness Cage - "Silence Brings Wisdom" (2013/2015), melancholic atmospheric black

Digital release: The Happiness Cage - "Silence Brings Wisdom" (2013/2015)
melancholic atmospheric black, Russia

When calm voice that greets us at the beginning of the first track is silenced, the heavy waves of melancholy which painted in the darkest colours immediately gets hold of your body and mind! This waves like slow poison will gradually penetrate into every cell of your body, while your whole body will not be captivated by longing, so hopeless and clutching to the ground and all the other senses are silenced, unable to compete with her...

Each of us at different times in their life faced with the idea that in this world something is wrong. This idea is like a splinter in the brain: it produces a state of uncertainty and a hidden, deep-seated fear which dooms its victim only on the feeling of hopelessness. It is these feelings awaken "The Happiness Cage" in his creation, these feelings leave no space nor the faith, nor the hope or opportunity to get away... (Mafey)

New release: Lauxnos - "The Last Pier" (2015, CD)
post rock / post metal / atmospheric post black, Russia

"The culmination of life...the end is not easy but this is just the beginning of life..."

"The Last Pier" it's a conceptual continuation of the previous album "My Dead Ocean" which tells about how the main character of the story, tired of the hypocrisy and the frailty of life, left the human realm and went to meet the horizon, towards to destiny that awaits him amid the waters of the boundless ocean, towards to mystery that hidden from man.

The lyrical component of the album is endowed with philosophical meaning and worthy of a separate literary works, texts written and performed on Russian language by two voices - pure and extreme. Stylistically the album was made at the intersection of post rock and post metal with elements of post black. Exceedingly handsome and airy instrumental compositions and fragments alternate with more rigid and disturbing music material but not a bit less touching, interesting and memorable. The atmosphere that creates the album - cold and lovely, light and heavy at the same time, the voltage builds up, then goes down, what remains is the uncertainty depressing and exciting waiting very plausible and far from the lightest end, however through the development of the album, on the other hand, passes light theme about extreme hope that helping to overcome any adversity!

Tracklist:

1. Morning at the Sea
2. Dolphin's Tale
3. Winds of Hope I (The Ending Calm)
4. Winds of Hope II (Meeting the Fate)
5. The Oncoming Storm
6. Gale Force 9
7. In Prayer to the Gods
8. My Last Pier
9. The Last Contemplation of the Moon
10. The Secret of Three Corners (bonus track)

Total: 68:31
