The basis of this instrumental no voices music work are atmospheric, cold and very pleasant keys and synths put on atmospheric black background with elements of ambient, neoclassic, neofolk and medieval. Lead melodies are easily remembered and come to mind long after, they are light, airy-heavenly and natural....

Light bright sadness, anxiety, sweet melancholy, personal dear memories and thoughts about a bright future - here is just a small list of feelings and emotions that may cause listening of this beautiful and inspiring album... Light and gentle sounds of pure melancholy practically without a severe and negative impurities. Listening to the album can see those landscapes, fields and valleys on which mind's eye roamed the сreator of this musical splendor. This music is music of wonderful natural legends, valor and light grief about the soon passing earthly life.

Magical sounds as if born in the forests of Lorien as if lost out here and fly in vast expanses of wasteland and fields, rivers and seas, woods and mountains, infinite skies, not knowing rest again and again appealing to the innate and inherent in each of us a sense of the beautiful.

On the album “Solstitium” Nord Frost is very close to new age and world music in the spirit of Amethystium and even Enigma, Gregorian, Era, and Deep Forest, and the the only very transparent resemblance with black contained in the dirty synthetic sound of guitars and the rhythmic tapping percussion on the general air and heavenly music canvas.

The album will surely appeal to the broadest circle of listeners because the tag is black metal in this case is rather nominal because it relates to ideological aspect but not the total musical component of the project, and this CD is much more authentic it will look on the shelf in the music collection in the company of Amethystium releases for example, rather than next to the compact discs Storm and Burzum that for the black scene is a definite breakthrough and achievement!

In the design of the work used photos of the author and photos of Katharos Melancholin (Lauxnos). Thumbnails these excellent photographs illustrate this wonderful music and reveal the theme of seasons. Press release contains abstracts of reviews from our media partner - portal.

Digital release: The Happiness Cage - "Lurking Beyond Consciousness" (2014/2016)
melancholic atmospheric black / doom, Russia

Lost my world beyond consciousness,
It, visiting, to leave could not.
The glimmer of suns in mirrors of the unseen buildings
Imprinted in memory, stretches at the feet.

With the above words begins the second full-length album of The Happiness Cage project which carrying the name "Lurking Beyond Consciousness". Went out this album in 2014 on limited procd-r by Rigorism Prods and has acquired a different sound compared to the debut album of the project. Now the album is available digitally on our label and in the future will appear on a CD together with the first album of this project.

The album tells the story of an ordinary man, who had the incredible opportunity to carry their lives on uncharted worlds. The hero of the story, living life on their home planet "Earth", every year watching the same picture, it feels like this world is dying. The death of all living things symbolizes autumn which calls for a winter winds and wade bones frosts, but every spring the world comes alive again, that's why with the onset of cold winter days the whole world freezes in anticipation of spring! Nature is cyclical, life replaces death, death replaces life - and nothing else. Unlike people. In the view of the main character death represent the people themselves, bearing death and destruction to all living things on the home planet, that is their nature. Hero in their long journeys, discovering long-dead worlds and draws analogies with human abode that will ever catch up with exactly the same "triumph".

On the other side of consciousness
Lurked a world that died long ago.
In his ruins I can see the outlines
Resembling a house. Us peace...

He continues to travel on uncharted worlds, which are hidden from consciousness. His mind unable to comprehend how he did it, how it got in there. Traveling through space, through the interstellar chaos, he finds what he wanted deep down. He finds a world in which there is no suffering, lies, deceit, pain, no emotions per se at all, and that for him is the supreme happiness. He is bewitched by the beauty of this place - its architecture, its life struck the heart, hiding in memory.

Not remember already as snuck in here.
There is no desire, and cannot go back.
To the people in their world the way closed forever.
The supreme consciousness, I want to be light...

Staying among the sublime to live life, terribly short on a cosmic scale, he knows the doctrine which have been hidden for centuries from the eyes of peoples, unravels the tangle of threads which interweaving the basics of the universe. In the last moment of his life comes to him the realization of limbs just past. It has open the last unknown mystery. All matter which is filled with life after death unable to leave the abode of the universe and go into oblivion, to be absorbed in a veil of timelessness, she is born on the horizon of a new burning star, radiating bright light for herself and for everyone who has seen the light.

Glitter luminaries on the languid sky,
Will flare one day, not remembering himself.
Stuck in the cool of the dark matter,
Waking up outside of life from the eternal sleep.

Digital release: Psychosis 4.48 – "...from the pain that burns in the dust to the oblivion of rotting..." (2013/2016)
depressive post black / blackened doom, Russia

"These lines written by pain,
The pain that burned me,
Wounds of the heart sprinkled with salt,
And in the soul awakens the darkness..."

Project Psychosis 4.48 was formed in late 2008 by Thanataur (Eisflammen, HexenHammer's Flame, Planetshine, Without Dreams, Aurum Solis) & Waldgeist (Wintercult, HexenHammer's Flame, Norskian Anathium, Waldstille, Akrethion). The main source of inspiration was the drama of Sarah Kane. Conceptually the project is based on the existential identity crisis that leads a person to self-destruct. In 2012-2013 was recorded and released debut mini album "Overdose of Hope". In 2013 recorded a full-length album "...from the pain that burns in the dust to the oblivion of rotting..." which we now bring to your attention!

The musical components of the album is extremely varied but is the monolith and excellently perceived - predominant slow and medium tempo of the music, quiet acoustics and explosive sound with raw components, enticing clean vocals and extreme to hysterical, magnificent lyrics on Russian language passed through the depths of wounded soul - all in this album!

"My World is destroyed,
My Paradise is so dirty,
My Light is not needed,
My Poison is contagious,
My World is crushed,
My God is flawed,
My Hell is beautiful,
My Journey is over..."


Thanataur - all music, lyrics, instruments, vocals (Eisflammen, HexenHammer's Flame, Planetshine, Without Dreams, Aurum Solis)

Cover design - Vladimir Prokofiev (In Tenebriz, Paint-It-Black-Design)
