Updates from SMGS Records: Encircling Sea & Rorcal

SickManGettingSick Records is a DIY underground label from Leipzig (Germany). They recently asked me to post some info their new releases on my blog, which I gladly do. Let's begin with Encircling Sea, a black/doom metal band from Melbourne (Australia), which I first noticed because of the post on our old RABM forum ~an year and a half ago:

  • Rob Allen - Guitars/Vocals
  • Dase Beard - Bass/Guitars
  • David Coen - Keyboards/Effects
  • Matt Radford - Drums
There's a short review of their new album "A Forgotten Land" @ The Dark Skies Above Us. And here's another interesting release by SMGS Records: RORCAL - "Világvége" (February 2013)

"Világvége, Armageddon, Fin du monde, Weltuntergang, Apocalypse, Ragnarök... No matter the language or origin, the 'End of the World' has always been a huge theme of discord since men were born. After illustrating the decadence of a Roman Emperor with HELIOGABALUS in 2010, RORCAL is back with a third album whose guideline just appeared to be obvious. Like its source of inspiration, RORCAL music has no boundaries and VILAGVEGE is here to prove it. When Doom turns into Black, you can't expect anything but chaos: 8 tracks straight to the point, nervous and furious like never before" - official site

P.S. SMGS also released Alda's "Tahoma" DLP.

  1. So Encircling Sea is a RABM friendly band?

  2. I don't remember exactly, but I think it was said so in that thread. Also looks like their label is RABM-friendly for sure.
