||| (Three pararel lines) is a band from Italy and this is the debut demo. The album is entitled 'Lines & Lands'. It's a mix of ambient/black metal and noise. 
||| Lines & Lands |||  Is nothing but a twisted perception of a frozen reality. Truth never spoke, lies never told. 
Nature and sorrow, noise and light are brought together and recalled on this half-hour recording. 
Distant from all the beauty, colours don’t matter. Feelings just don’t belong. Just a mere, abstract and cruel representation of time and space, of lines and lands.

Harrower - "Remembrance" (2016)




HARROWER  "Remembrace"

Year: 2016
Genre: Black Metal
Country: USA

Track List:
  1. Embracing
  2. November
  3. A pale sun
  4. The tower
  5. Mountain cradle
  6. Harrower

Harrower was conceived in 2013 within the mountainous region of upstate New York in a Hudson Valley village called New Paltz. A term used to describe cultivators of the land, Harrower plays a double entendre with harrowing: distressing, to call forth a sound of desolation and struggle. Harrower brings together the atmosphere of the rural landscape with black and post-metal in its debut album, the same sound it has shared on stage with bands like Yellow Eyes, Black Table, Planning for Burial, and Funeralbloom. 

Remembrance is struggle and strife. Hatred, despair, and loss pervade the first half of the album before transitioning into coping and understanding: feelings of overcoming anguish. With the natural world as its backdrop, the lyrics place importance on the inclusion of nature in the overcoming of ones internal struggle”

Miguel-Almereyda - "Jian Zhicheng"


I want to share this little project with you. Anapsique and I decided to make a music video regarding the recent suicide committed by Jian Zhicheng... she ran an animal shelter in Taiwan, by site policies and in view of the small number of adopted animals she had to sacrifice some dogs to prevent that the number of housed animals exceed the capacity of the center. In total 700 dogs were sacrificed in two years. 
With the same drugs used to kill the animals; Jian Zhicheng committed suicide at the age of 31... leaving only the following words:
"Human life is not different from the life of a dog; I'll die with the same drugs used to put dogs to sleep in peace". 

We both believe that human life has no more value than any other species. The human being "justifies" the right to use as he pleases everything around him, curtailing freedoms, ending lives; enslaving the life of an animal that only has unconditional love for us despite the neglect and abuse. 
This dog, tied 24 hours a day, doesn't know anything about freedom. All he knows are the walls that contain him an the outside world that he manages to see, really such a vile action is justified? Tying an animal that some human thinks he "belong" so he doesn't be able to escape, so he could only do his one job in life: to take care of a property from intruders. 

What is the real value of life today?

You can listen to Anapsique's music in soundcloud and Facebook.

Listen

Timekiller are a rawpunk/hardcore band from Brazil. This is the short chat i've whit them.

 "I l­ived in Rio de Janeiro for a few years wh­ere I started the band with Douglas (sing­er/songwriter) of deaf kids. We released ­our "bleed out" ep which was released on ­noise of hell records and was on cvlt nat­ions top 6 raw punk records of 2014. Shor­tly after that a split with Timekiller an­d deaf kids was released. I am no longer in brazil but I am now in Vietnam and our­ "stagnant" ep is finally done mixed and ­mastered. I play all of the instruments o­n the records except for drums. The drumm­er on this record is chad lumsden from Co­llapsian. A kind of doom metal band from ­USA. While the band is no longer based ou­t of brazil, we still maintain that the b­and is from brazil/USA because I often go­ back there and that is where much of the­ songwriting and recording happens. We ar­e influenced by hardcore and Motörhead bu­t still enjoy noisy atmospheric bands lik­e swans. We try to incorporate that into ­our music as much as possible. A good mix­ of aggressive hardcore but also emotiona­l and paranoid at times. We are looking f­or a label who will release this record i­n a physical format but until then we hav­e it for download on our bandcamp"
