The Dark Skies Above Us- Loudness Against Tav






H 6η συλλογή μας ολοκληρώθηκε. Στο μεν μουσικό μέρος ,θα έλεγα ότι είναι ότι πιο Speed-ατο έχουμε κυκλοφορήσει. Hardcore, Crust και Black Punk έχουν την τιμητική τους ,εδώ. Στο δε πολιτικό ,τα έσοδα θα δοθούν στον αγώνα ενάντια στην κατασκευή υπερτραχείας (No Tav Movement) καθώς το μαφιόζικο Ιταλικό κράτος συνεχίζει να κάνει εξώσεις ,να φυλακίζει συντρόφους να πραγματοποιεί περιβαλλοντική καταστροφή.  Η σκηνή μας είναι ζωντανή- και πιστέψτε μας προσφέρεται για γράψιμο - αλλά η αλληλεγγύη μπουσουλάει ακόμα . Να ευχαριστήσουμε τις μπάντες που ακόμα μια φορά που δέχτηκαν αναντίρρητα να συμμετάσχουν, επίσης τον Lifesuspended και DeafestChase για την εξαιρετική δουλειά.

Καμιά διαπραγμάτευση με το κράτος- ούτε βήμα πίσω, ΝΟ ΤΑV.


Our 6th collection has just been completed. As for the music part, i would call it as "Speed-est", we have released it. Hardcore, Crust and Black Punk are leading. For the political side, all the revenues will be donated for the fight against the high speed train (No Tav Movement), since the Italian government- an the mafia side of it- keep making evictions, sending comrades to jail and polluting the environment. Our stage is alive- and believe us is available for publishing- and our solidarity is still on. Great thanks to the bands that once more offered to participate without question, and to the Lifesuspended and DeafestChase for their great job.

No negotiation with the government - not even a step behind, NO TAV.

Ragana - Wash Away (2015)



Genre : Atmospheric Black Metal / Black Metal / Experimental /Black Crust
Country Of Origin : U. S (Oakland, California)
Tracklisting :
1. Invocation pt. 2
2. Wash Away
3. Nameless Constellation
4. Alive
5. Frail Flame
6. Tired
7. The Field
 Οι Ragana είναι χαρακτηριστικό παράδειγμα μπάντας πoυ πειραματίζεται και πετυχαίνει.  Οι εναλλαγές καφρίλας και μελωδικότητας είναι χαοτικές.  Η διμελής παρέα εκεί που σε μαγεύει με ψηλά φωνητικά  και lowtempo ήχους σε φρενάρει με τα ασήκωτα ρίφς και brutal φωνητικα. Συνολικά πολύ καλές με έντονα εσωστρεφή ματιά  , female power !

The Ragana is a typical case of the band keen on experimenting and succeeding. The changesbetween no rule and exceptional melody are chaotic. This 2 person company seduces youwith high and low tempo vocals and guides you to powerful rifs and brutal vocals. As a total,very good having self-centered characteristics, female power!!!

Repressione - Fuoco






Genre: Hardcore Punk/ D-beat


Country Of Origin: Bologna (Emilia Romagna, Italy)

Tracklisting:

1. 1312
2. In Costante Conflitto
3. Ferocemente

streaming/download


“Fuoco” is the new album of the band Repressione. After their first EP “Rumore e Rabbia”, this time they amaze us with texts  that become an axe which try to cut the chains that make us the puppets of this society. Track after track, they bring us in the places where the Authority exercises his dominion, from our daily life make from routines and alienating relationships to the jail, the symbol par excellence of the capitalistic society. But this album gives us also a message of hope: the dark of these times that bring us to this perpetual nightmare becomes our ally, in fact is the night and its invisibles creatures that scares the power. These creatures are all of us which under the ferocious shots of the repression, feed the fire of the revolt that will burn the society, dancing under the moonshine destroying the existing under the hits of a dance full of hate and love opening together new perspectives of a revolutionary way of life. The album contains also a cover of the Contrasto and one of the Wretched reinterpreted under the inimitable style of the Repressione.

Kvlthammer – Kvlthammer (2014)



Genre: Black Rock n Roll / Black Thrash

Country Of Origin : U.S (Indianapolis)

Tracklisting :

1. Pathless
2. Hesh Trip
3. Hounds
4. Habitual Offender
5 . Visions (Interlude)
6. Hate Is Not Enough
7. Terrifying Ecstasy
8. No Borders
9. The All-Seeing High


Ξέρω ότι βλέπεις Black Metal R nR και στραβώνεις. Άραξε! Μπάντες όπως : Venom , Hellhammer, Bathory  τι παίζανε όταν ξεκίνησαν? Εμένα οι Kvlthammer μου θυμίζουν τέτοιες εποχές .Τότε που Black Metal τραγουδιόταν και γίνονταν μεγάλα mosh pits σε μικρούς χώρους. Αλητεία, μπύρα και μακρύ κατσαρό μαλλί. Τα τραγούδια θυμίζουν πολύ Aura Noir στην πιο πανκ εκδοχή τους. Ωστόσο , αν ψάχνεις για κάτι πιο σκοτεινό , δεν θα το βρεις εδώ.


 I know when you face Black Metal R n’ R you‘re not exactly thrilled. Chill out! Band such the Venom, Hellhammer , Bathory used to play in that style. From my point of view the Kvlthammer remind me of the time when Black Metal was played along and big mosh pits were held in small places. Raw style, beer and long curly hair. The songs bring to Aura Noir at the punk version. Anyway , if you’re looking for something darker , maybe you will be disappointed.

Glen and Precipice by Deafest




On February 23rd 2016, Deafest released "Glen and Precipice" their fourth full-length album. As some of you may or may not know, Deafest, a black metal group from Colorado, United States; is all about nature, and the landscapes that portray true beauty. This new release starts off strong with the pure raw Deafest sound we've all come to know and love, while carrying a new kind of clarity that previous releases may not have been so prevalent with. If you take the time to listen through Deafest's entire discography you'll hear the transformations just as you've seen nature change, and the earth change with each passing day. Chase of Deafest is very much an active member in The Black Metal Alliance, as well as The Dark Skies Above Us, which I can say I've had the honor and the privilege of working alongside him with TDSAU's Resistance Anti-NSBM Compilation Volume IV, as well as the BMA's Crushing Intolerance Volume III. Truly a great musician, but most importantly a great person. Now to return from my digression; "Glen and Precipice" is an astound work of art, that I hold very close to my heart, there are so many emotions captured within the riffs of this short masterpiece. I very much truly mean masterpiece as well; this album will take you on an emotional journey through the valleys, "Hollers" over mountain tops soaring high into the bright sunlight to leave you back down in the valley in the furthest reaches from the warmth of the sun. Where your heart will ache and mourn for our beautiful earth, as you sit back and watch humanity destroy the one thing they have left; then when the chords and the atmosphere lifts your spirits again, you'll sit high above the mountain tops at one with nature. A new found respect for our home. Some of you may be familiar with Deafest, and know that they do not charge for their electronic releases. You can grab yourself a copy of "Glen and Precipice" here with the convenient "Name your own price" tool: https://deafest.bandcamp.com/album/glen-and-precipice

Thanks again for reading:

vvvlv / Void Forger Split (2015)




Country Of Origin: Romania

Genre: Doom Metal / Black Metal / Crust Punk

Tracklisting

1. Vvvlv - Homo Economicus

2. Void Forger - Excess Collapse





Hi everybody. Here I am again. I had really no free time. I moved from my house, organized tdsau fest I (a bomb!) and tdsau benefit comp. No way. But now let me introduce you an amazing release of this year. Vvvlv and Void Forger split. They are our friends by this time and I'm honoured to talk of them. This stone comes first with a lot of sludgy doom and heavy voice: Vvvlv. I think they have a lot of resources that will show us time by time. Void Forger, of course, took care of graphics and stuffs and their track is totally rad. What to say more? Just listen to it (and read lyrics!).

The Dark Skies Above Us - Resistance: ANTI​-​NSBM Volume 4






Ορμώμενοι από το γράμμα του Francesco Puglisi ( συλληφθέντα από τον  Ιούνιο του 13’) η κοινότητα του The Dark Skies Above Us αποφάσισε να στείλει τα έσοδα στην οικογένεια της κοπέλας και συντρόφου του – Paola Ferla ,για την κάλυψη των εξόδων της κηδεία της. Εγώ από την μεριά μου, θα ήθελα ευχαριστήσω τον LifeSuspended και τις μπάντες για την ανιδιοτελή οργάνωση και προθυμία τους στο παρών εγχείρημα .

Η σχέση αιχμάλωτων και εκτός των τοίχων συντρόφων , είναι αμφίδρομη . (Α)

Συνεισφορά - ΕνημέρωσηΛεπτομέρειες : The Dark Skies Above Us –Resistance : Anti – NSBM Volume 4

Having been affected by the letter of Francesco Puglisi (in jail since June 13) the community of The Dark Skies Above Us decided to send the efforts to the family of his girlfriend and companion – Paola Ferla – for the expenses of her funeral. As for me, I would like to offer thanks to the LifeSuspended and the bands for their selflessness organization and willingness to this attempt.


The bonding between captives and their companions outside the walls, is bidirectional. (A)
