    Intaglio's sophomore album is a comparatively gentle and atmospheric blend of neoclassical Death/Doom that finds its own distinct space.
 cdimgIntaglio (15-year Remix)
    An album that helped kick-start the Russian extreme Doom scene in the early 2000's - what's not to like about Intaglio's debut seeing a re-release?

Glimmering Veil
    The sophomore from Death/Doom band Superstatic is a complex, lengthy journey into crushingly bleak sci-fi/horror inspired territories.
    Californian solo project Dawning offer a short but quite sweet example of raw, largely instrumental "live in the studio" jamming.

Melting The Ice In The Hearts Of Men
    The latest full-length from Our Survival Depends On Us is a fascinating, sweeping, cinematic Post-Metal opus.
    Helevorn's latest full-length is something of a mixed bag, which doesn't maintain solid momentum between its flashes of brilliance.
cdimgAnthems To My Remains
    This blackened Funeral Doom debut from Polish solo project Thorns Of Grief is a great mix of brutality and forlornness.
 cdimgBlack Mass Wedding
    The sophomore from US band Bestialord is a dark, Satanic exercise in '80s-style Doom Metal.
