House Of DoomIt only takes a few short bars of the title track 'House Of Doom' to feel that familiar
sensation again: yes, Leif Edling aka the undisputed king of minor key songwriting has
returned. With him, he brings frenzied riffing, melancholy made sound and warm Hammond
organ tapestries that form the pillars of every Candlemass classic! The band is back on
top form with this killer doom epic. The House Of Doom EP comes with 3 bonus tracks,
raw and in your face: The brooding monster of a track 'Flowers Of Deception' indulges
in unadulterated doom heaviness, while the second half of the EP features the stripped-down
ballad 'Fortuneteller' and the wraps up with the almost sludgy 'Dolls On A Wall'. The
Swedish pioneers of timeless slowness managed once again to distill the essence of epic
doom metal on House Of Doom - and at the same time they make waiting for the next
long-player (to be released in fall 2018) even harder1. House Of Doom

Die Healing (Awaiting Repress)"Die Healing" featuring original SAINT VITUS vocalist Scott Reagers! This is essential doom!!!!

Die Healing is a pivotal point in Vitus' discog; not only their very last before they temporarily ended their relentlessly classic doom metal album releases with a thirteen year hiatus, but their third recording with Scott Reagers, who helped make the eponymous debut, Hallow's Victim and EP The Walking Dead such milestones of doom. And what a way to go out. Many will tell you this is actually Saint Vitus' finest moment, and although I favour the debut and Wino's career zenith Born Too Late above it, there is no doubt it deserves as solid a place in the pantheon of doom as Nightfall or Master Of Reality or In The Rectory Of The Bizarre Reverend.
The band's sound and instrumentation is class without question. The guitar tone saw a slight departure from the fuzz prevalent on Wino-albums (including the 2012 opus Lillie: F-65), with something more of an electric edge familiar to C.O.D. Fret not, the tone is still plenty burly, and of course massively appropriate for the toking of vaporous substances.
The guitar solos are likewise a little clearer - though of course solos like on 'One Mind' and 'Return Of The Zombie' have that inimitable Chandler scaling chaos in spades, squeaking like a dozen metal detectors malfunctioning. In general though the album's sound gives the feeling of the band moving forward with the sound established on the underappreciated, Chritus Linderson-assisted C.O.D., while welcoming their original singer back into the fold as easily as if he'd never left. It comes together brilliantly.
What cements the album's place atop the pile of '90s Vitus releases is that it's a lot more solid than V and C.O.D. in terms of songs, chock full of highlights with nary a skippable track. 'Dark World' heralds absolutely no messing about, a timeless slow burn Saint Vitus classic to get you going. Reagers unlocks his trademark moon-touched howls, boosted here with a gruffness and depth that must have come with age. He can still hit the unnerving highs that made the debut such a unique piece. Not to mention his more aghast and tragic-heroic style is accompanied by a lyrical shift toward tales of horror and myth, adding further colours of yore to the band's solidified musical approach (although 'In The Asylum' is as brilliantly witty a tale of human disintegration as anything Wino has written for Vitus).
Some of the great knells peeling off Chandler's guitar in the main riff of 'Let The End Begin' are highlights for Vitus' entire career. It climaxes with a great rocking section, splashed with sumptuous guitar and bass solos, in a move actually quite uncharacteristic for the band, who tended to steer between leadweight trawling songs and more rambunctious cuts. The eerie build on 'Sloth' is another of the band's best moments. The entire song, with its off-kilter structure and wailing chorus, is an example of just how muscular the band's creative fibers were at the time. 'Return of the Zombie', a quasi-sequel to the classic, shifty song off the debut of course, makes its mark with a crazed vocal performance and some spooky effects. And of course there's more, I've just listed a few real standouts but the album is too generous in its blessings for them to be exhaustively listed.
It's just a really solid album that builds on all the best things the band had done to date while keeping the songwriting fresh. What a swansong this was. This album is the reason Lillie: F-65 had such vast expectations from me. A must have.

Includes Original 2015 Enslaved Roadburn Poster
Roadburn Live is Enslaved's first official live album, a split release between Roadburn Records and By Norse Music. Enslaved is a band widely known for being one of the best live bands in the scene. The album was recorded during one of band's headline shows at the renown Roadburn Festival 2015; an edition curated by Enslaved's guitar player Ivar Bjørnson. The album features a brilliant layout created by highly demanded artist and Roadburn's regular graphic designer Costin Chioreanu.
The album was mixed by Iver Sandøy at Solslottet Studio, mastered by Jens Bogren (Kreator, Opeth, Sepultura) in Fascination Studios. It is also the last official release with Herbrand Larsen on keys and vocals.
After celebrating 25 years in 2016 showcasing a majority of older material, Roadburn Live displays songs mainly from the newer and more progressive part of Enslaved's career, with songs from "In Times", "Riitiir", "Isa", "Below the Lights" and "Monumension". The album features the guest appearances of Einar Selvik (Wardruna), Aðalbjörn Tryggvason (Sólstafir), Per Wiberg (Opeth, Candlemass); and Menno Gootjes (Focus) on Immigrant Song, the first cover song by Enslaved to ever appear on a record.
Grutle Kjellson comments on the album: I'm generally not a huge fan of live albums, I like to be present at a show, to grasp the energy of the band and to witness the, sometimes, magical symbiosis that occurs between the band and the audience. I am, however, a huge fan of the Roadburn Festival! I consider this to be my all time favorite, both as a musician and as a guest. Therefore; if ever Enslaved were to release a live album, it had to be from a Roadburn show! I hope you will enjoy this piece of wax as much as we had recording it!1. Building With Fire

'Epicus Doomicus Metallicus' is a true classic. Every track is undeniably strong - heavy metal riffs blended with almost neo-classical touches,
plus some theatrical elements bringing to mind bands like Mercyful Fate (thought to be another influence). This is one of the definitive Doom Metal releases, immortalising the band, alongside early developers of the style such as the US band, Pentagram.1. Solitude

Dactylis Glomerata (Out of Stock)Candlemass were formed by bassist and songwriter Leif Edling in Stockholm, Sweden in 1984. Well known for their epic doom metal, they have hugely influenced a generation of the genre's subsequent greats from My Dying Bride to Paradise Lost - Candlemass themselves taking a large influence from Black Sabbath.
Dactylis Glomerata' was a come-back album of sorts, originally released in 1998, after the band had temporarily been laid to rest after the 'Chapter VI' album.
'Dactylis...' was an album of more stripped down dirty doom with some solid songwriting on display, evoking what some described as a strong stoner vibe, along with some hard rock elements. This was in contrast to the more epic heavy metal inspired compositions from previous albums, which the band were more known for. Having stood the test of time incredibly well, 'Dactylis Glomerata' is a gem in the band's rich history spanning 30 years.
The album notably also features guitars by Michael Amott of Arch Enemy (ex Carcass), and also a guest appearance by Ian Haugland from Europe.1. Wiz
