The Eternal Drift's Canticles
    Extremely competent, but a bit too familiar-sounding: Verdun's debut full-length.
 cdimgThis Dead Is World
    Suffer In Paradise offer a melodic but somewhat pedestrian Funeral Doom debut.

Дорога в неизбежность
    An energetically melodic Gothic Doom debut from 2013 by Анклав Снов aka Enclave Of Dreams.
 cdimgIn Search Of The Unknown
    More modern-day Anathema atmospherics than Doom, Iran's The Unknown deliver a polished debut.

La Existencia Humana Debe Ser Un Error
    A good, solid Death/Doom debut from the mixed French and Colombian Ceremonia.
 cdimgEternal Lament (Reissue)
    Massive, crushing and relentless: the re-release of AGoD's debut plus EP/split bonuses.
cdimgWaiting For Öktober MMXVI
    Once again, Forever Autumn's Acoustic Doom is damn' near perfect, on its own terms, with the caveat that they may not be yours...
 cdimgYour Time Will Come (Demo)
    This demo from The Conqueror Worm demonstrates, but doesn't quite live up to, their talents.

2016-08-15 : Interview with Cardinal Wyrm

2016-08-11 : Interview with Plateau Sigma
"The band has created a majestic and, in some senses, avant-garde work with deep and nontrivial concepts appealing to ancient Roman/Greek mythology...I would have like to have had a longer interview, but it turned out to be briefer than Manuel Vicari (vocals, guitars) and I originally planned."
