NEPTHISIS – Releases New Single “Remnants Of You”

Posted in Heavy Metal with tags , , , on October 11, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

NEPTHISIS has unleashed their new single “Remnants of You” via Ghost Cult Magazine. The song is from their upcoming, chaos-driven album Spiral Hollow due out on January 21, 2022.

The artist comments:

“During the pandemic, I took a deep, dark dive and unleashed my true honest, chosen sound and identity in an album under the dark goddess name & brand NEPTHISIS. The music is dark and heart-wrenching, and pairs with cinematic visuals and storytelling. This is my dream, and it’s coming to fruition. It feels exciting and vulnerable, daring and aligned.”

Nepthisis is super excited to share our first single Remnants of You. It was created over the course of the past few years. And it is an honor to share it with you. May it impact you the way it’s our own.”

Spearheaded by multi-disciplined artist Sheila EdenSpiral Hollow comes from a place below the surface where the sleepless and sinister dwell. Heavily inspired by Egyptian mythology and the twin goddesses Nephthys and Isis – from which the outfit garners their name – Spiral Hollow is transformed by the darkest of dreams and the most primal desires. Musically, this exploration takes on gothic nuances while abandoning any hesitation in exchange for a more aggressive spirit unbound by genres.

NEPTHISIS dwells in the realm of modern female performers CHELSEA WOLFE and ZOLA JESUS – combining goth, industrial, electronic, and experimental rock. The musical influences are cross-genre with tonal qualities of hard-hitting 1990s groups DEFTONES, MASSIVE ATTACK, NINE INCH NAILS, MY BLOODY VALENTINE and HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS.

NEPTHISIS is a multi-faceted and dynamic musical discovery that will engulf fans in a shroud of the unknown. Walk the uncharted path with NEPTHISIS

MORDIAN TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE

Posted in Metal with tags , , on June 21, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

January Moon’, the new single from Alternative-Gothic artist Mordian, is to be released July 2nd. Produced by Evan Graham Dunn, it’s a haunting offering meant to carve the path for the next era of music; Mordian is eager to release more material after a period of rumination.

‘January Moon’ follows her debut EP ‘Romance in Disguise’ which released in May 2019 and contains three distinctive sections which explore contrasting moods and atmospheres. Opening with serene entwining of vocal harmonies and clean guitar chords, this section has a personal feel with a strong uplifting atmosphere. Soulful vocals produce a beautiful sound before thundering into heavily distorted metal instrumentation and melodic elements. Emerging from the depths, the concluding passage brings a delicate melody performed on classical guitar with a haunting spoken narrative.

Journeying through intense moods, the distinctive musical style of each part delivers its own powerful impact. Mordian’s overarching Gothic themes and ethereal sounds are certain to evoke a whole world of feelings within.

It seems like Gothic Metal became the national music for Finland – and among the leading acts you’ll find TO/DIE/FOR.

TO/DIE/FOR was founded in the middle of the 90’s. They soon released some mini-albums on their own and their first album “All Eternity” followed in 1999, released through Spinefarm Records (Finland)/Nuclear Blast (Europe). Soon the band became well-known within the gothic scene, not at last because of the excellent cover version of the 80’s classic “In The Heat Of The Night” (originally by Sandra). A tour with in Flames and Sentenced followed and proved that TO/DIE/FOR is more than an overnight sensation.

When their second album “Epilogue” was released in 2001, the single “Hollow Heart” reached a top position at the Finnish single charts in advance. A tour with Lacrimosa followed, another successful step in the history of this outstanding Gothic Metal act.

After the band focused on the songwriting and took a small break, their third record “Jaded” was released in 2003. Once again a rocking Gothic Metal album, featuring those typical, melancholic and dark vocals of Jape Parätalo, which is one of the trademarks of the band. The fourth studio album “IV” (2005) followed and “Wounds Wide Open”, the fifth studio album, was released in October 2006. In autumn 2007 the band decided to take a break.

After many years of absence one of the pioneering Gothic Rock/Metal bands is back with their new album “Samsara”, which will be released in summer 2012!

DOMMIN. A blend of Rock, Hard Rock, Gothic and Heavy Metal. Yes, I am into the songs and sound of DOMMIN, at the end of the Metal day, I am a very diversified Metalhead. Admittedly, I am also NOT ashamed to admit that. DOMMIN. Taking Metal detours is an adventure… heck, you only live once. My self diagnosis is that I love music, period. No, not Daughtry… I stated music, afterall, I’m not into garbled bubble gum slop from a televised talent show. On February 2, 2010, I will be picking up my reserved copy of Love Is Gone at my neighborhood fye and will skip all the way to my car with a sinister smile on my face. (O.k., I am just kidding about the “skipping to my car” part). This new DOMMIN album will be in my hands just 5 days from now… (I am counting Thursday thru Monday).
