Combining, winding orchestration, with, growling death metal rips, Ivan Mildanov is able to create music that takes the listener on a journey which is simultaneously intoxicating beauty and menacing darkness.
The second of the two tracks on Soul Finder (available on bandcamp) is I Was In Hell.

Calligraphist is an England based Bulgarian dystopian-hop creator.
After a three year gap Calligraphist returns with the intriguing just over seven and a third minute track GodSpeed.
A piece which collaborates with five other musicians – featuring three voices, trumpet, a B♭ cornet, along with more familiar instrumentation in a composition that seeps its way in to the listeners bone-marrow. The raw rambling narrative is delivered to a finely judged musical accompaniment and the listener finds themselves reminded of the nature of the dream sequence structure of Bunyan’s – The Pilgrim’s Progress.
Calligraphist is unafraid to deliver material which is, akin to Marmite, either repelling or attracting and unlikely to have any other reaction. The fact I am asking you to spend time in company with Godspeed lets you know that I do enjoy the structure of this track which is a delicious friction of contrasting calmness and the frenetic discordance of a lead vocal which tumbles through quizzical ponderings of the world around failing to find resolution.
