The celtic-metal sextet of Matt (Vocals), Nicolas (Guitar), Tristan (Keyboard), Guillaume (Guitar), Matthieu (Bass) and Axel (Drums), from Lausanne (Switzerland), who form the band Norvhar will be releasing their début LP Kauna on the 16th of February.
Released as a standalone single today (available on bandcamp) – Fest In Midgard -, which is the second single to appear from Kauna, opens to a quiet strumming in to which the mind prepares for a softly laid celtic ballad only for the scabrous vocal to hurtle though the speakers, immediately cloaking the room in a bewitching Nordic folk-tale of legendary battles in dark forests.
The Swiss downtempo duo Odd Beholder will be releasing the LP All Reality Is Virtual on the 10th of October.
A ten track album (available on bandcamp) of drifting melancholia that rotates through the room in gentle undulations which has a sad isolation as the release reflects of a world in which digital pixel connections are, for many, a validation of self-worth.
The Swiss djent sextet Mycelia will be releasing the LP Apex on the 12th of October.
The first song to be revealed from the album, also the first of the thirteen tracks, Eight Milligrams sets up the framework for the roughly forty eight minutes release with the blend of death-metal, tincture of jazz, twist of maths-rock and a smidgen of house which permeates through their compositions.
The Swiss melodic-deathmetal quintet Soulline will be releasing the LP The Deep on the 19th of September.
From the forthcoming release – the rip-roaring Leviathan that thunders through the room in a flurry, which showcases their blend of fury and melodic structure, was released as a stand alone single on the 22nd.
The Swiss ambient-electronica project 50in15 revealed a new track within the past twenty four hours.
As with previous music featured there is an underlying sense of the vastness of the surrounding mountainous landscape, which plays a significant influence in all of the music, resulting in swooping loops of hushed and unhurried synthesis surrounding a shrouded core.
Given the title of the new composition – Pop – one may contemplate there must be a conflict between the two ideas – yet, on hitting play – the conjoin of the juxtaposed themes makes perfect sense with the listeners mind and body slowing in to syncopation.
