White Fog, the growing force in the black metal community, has signed with The Bearded Dragon Productions. The band, originally a solo project created by Nick “Phantom” Boisjolie, has already released their debut demo, “Vampyric Sacrament”, independently before signing with the label.

Earlier this year the band announced recording a new release; a full-length album. As the production began, a new member came into the iridescent light, going under the moniker of “Queen of Shadows”, who took over Drums and Ambience. The new album, “Temple of Sorrow”, is in the process of being recorded now, with eleven tracks being featured on the release. Continue reading »

Two man project Mystic Winter bring their diy ethic to bear on the ep Tergiversating Blasphemies

Mystic Winter arose from the ashes of the band Haloed Patriots in the woods of Indiana and the early material sprang from two band members realizing material they had did not fit the previous band’s identity.  In March of 2018, Mystic Winter released the single “Withered”,  with Tergiversating Blasphemies coming in 2019. With musical influences including black metal icons like Antestor, Crimson Moonlight, Horde, and Vials of Wrath, one might expect a project filled with black metal and explorations into the ambient side of the genre.

The ep opens with “Exordium” a haunting mostly ambient, keyboard and horror movie sound effect laden track with some deep, growled spoken word over the top.  Suprisingly, the next track “Nomadic Tumor” also starts out with the atmospheric keyboard intro,  instead of the usual explosion of riffs and blastbeats common to the genre.  Unfortunately, while the keyboards sound as if they were recorded normally, once the rest of the music comes in it sounds more like it was recorded in metal box a ways away from the microphones.  The songs is muffled echo-driven noise separated by cleanly recorded keyboard sections.  Ambient black metal noise seems a fitting description.

Shekinah has joined The Bearded Dragon Productions roster, also known as the Draak Herd. The project is a newly formed side-project of the ambiguous and ambitious Nocturnal Servant of black metal project Proven Existence and goregrind project Brainkrusher.

The new and inspired black metal project, Shekinah, is extremely straightforward in their views. The project’s announcement came by way of retaliation of the Lousiana Church Burnings by a black metal musician who claimed to be influenced by the likes of Varg Vikernes of Burzum, known most infamously for being involved in the burnings of Fantoft Stave Church, Åsane Church, Skjold Church, Holmenkollen Chapel, the attempted arson of Storetveit Church, as well as stabbing Euronymous of Mayhem.
