The Blood Choir
A couple of songs have surfaced from the album (available on bandcamp) the most recent of which The Boat , which will be the third of the ten compositions, is scheduled for release as a stand alone single today (also available on bandcamp).
Houses Of The Sun makes a welcome follow-up to the 2012 LP No Windows To The Old World, having, on the basis of the two songs, a similar dark shadowing that seeps in to the room along with wide surface area to the material, though with an occluded front of electronica which creates a sense of turbulence and hidden menace.
The Denmark based neo-classical-metal quintet Parzival – originating from Denmark and Russia – release the LP Urheimat Neugeburt on the 16th of March.

Deeply rooted in Russian and Danish folklore the nine track album is a rich blend of mutilayered instrumentation and distinctive vocal of foreboding intensity which encases the room in a brooding, bewitching, oppressive atmosphere from which the listener has no desire to escape.
Rummage for that faded leather jacket, select your preferred air-guitar, strike your pose and then hit play.
The fourth of the ten tracks Song Of Reckoning hammers out of the speakers like a cork firing out of a warm and shaken bottle of champagne as the bubbles sprays all around, prior to settling down to an impressive display of power melody.
