Anabioz – ‘There the Sun Falls’ (2014)

Anabioz there the sun falls

By: Michel
Score: 8,5/10
Release: 10-7-2014
Label: Sound Age Productions

Anabioz, isn’t a brand new band, they started way back in 2003. But this doesn’t mean they produced a large collections of albums, a demo in their first year and two albums, one in 2008 and one in 2010. But I can say I was very excited when they announced they were planning on a new album. Their style of solid Death metal is blended with a very large dose of folk. The music filled to the limit with violin. Only when Olga is singing with her nice high, bit classical, voice, she stops playing the violin. Add the nice raw low male vocals to this and you have an awesome folk-metal mix. So bring it on this new album… Read More

Release: 26-5-2014
Label: Independent

From the ashes of Viatora, a new name arises. Crawling from the obscure caverns of the Dutch folk-metal scene arrives the fall of the darkness, as all light quenches, Nachtval.
After the song Banneling made it’s way to the enternet a while ago, the band will profile themselves with a new demo.
This demo starts with an intro ofcourse. Grim and dark is the musical sphere they grant us. Read More
