WWSAMC_SLECHTVALKSlechtvalk have returned with their fifth album, Where Wandering Shadows and Mists Collide and bring a collection of thundering, dark, and powerful blackened death metal that lives up to the anticipation for this album.

When one thinks of black metal or death metal with heavy black metal influences, bands like Antestor, Crimson Moonlight, and Slechtvalk are some names that should come to mind.  Interestingly, all three have had their share of long breaks and then releasing an album that instantly reminds everyone of how good they really are.  Antestor took a break from 2005 to 2012 and then released Omen, Crimson Moonlight took their break from 2011 to 2016 and released Divine Darkness, and now we have Slechtvalk on break from 2010 and releasing Where Wandering Shadows and Mists Collide now at the end of 2016. Slechtvalk (Dutch for peregrine falcon) was formed from a solo project of singer/guitarist Shamgar around 1999, with a debut album, Falconry being released in 2000. Following positive reception of Falconry, Shamgar was able to assemble a band and in 2002, released The War that Plagues the Lands Continue reading »

oie_uyec2eabkdumThe new Circle of Dust full-length studio album “Machines of Our Disgrace” is available now. Created by artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller, Circle of Dust returns to Klayton’s industrial roots with metal riffs, pulsing electronics and catchy songwriting. Check out the premiere of the lyric video for ‘Embracing Entropy‘ below.

Says Klayton: “‘Embracing Entropy‘ ended up becoming one of my favorite tracks from “Machines of Our Disgrace.” I wrote it early on in the process and was having fun reconnecting with some old drum machines, gritty guitar tones and more extreme panning effects in the mix. The song ended up with one of the more memorable vocal melodies on the album, so that brought all the elements together into what I felt perfectly represented Circle of Dust in 2016.”

“Machines of Our Disgrace” marks the 5th full-length studio album for industrial music pioneer Circle of Dust, after a near 20 year hiatus. Created by artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller, Circle of Dust returns to Klayton’s industrial roots with metal riffs, pulsing electronics and catchy songwriting.
