SSS023 Falaise – A Place I Don’t Belong To

SSS023 Falaise – A Place I Don’t Belong To

After two acclaimed albums, Falaise are now ready to make a further step in their artistic growth. The main album concept relates to the sense of loss and perdition that human beings suffer for by living in modern megalopolis, so devoid of personality and soul. “A Place I Don’t Belong To” is an urban desire of escapism drowned under a veil of melancholy and sadness. Like homeless wanderers towards nothingness, Falaise members draw a dramatic painting of despondency. Their feelings of loss and confusion take a post-black metal shape, so much that it comes to mind another band that has been part of the ATMF’s history, LANTLOS. Falaise’s music conjures up the disturbing feeling of being isolated by the world’s inner core, where hopelessness and desperation unfolds on grey walls of sound. Dreams and pale shading of solitary consciousness are mingled with the wordless grey reality, but the post rock psychedelic influences do not wash away Falaise’s depressive black metal roots, while noise and ambient elements concur to the multifaceted and introspective mood of the album. The third effort by the Italian duo, “A Place I Don’t Belong To”, is a perfect synthesis between the black metal character of the band’s debut and the post-rock currents of its come-back, an un-cathartic journey through the sewers of modernity.

JOYLESS – “Unlimited Hate” & JOYLESS – “Wisdom & Arrogance” Cult 008/009

JOYLESS – “Unlimited Hate” & JOYLESS – “Wisdom & Arrogance” Cult 008/009

Shortly following the successful re-editions of FORGOTTEN WOODS’ cult albums “As The Wolves gather” and “The Curse of Mankind”, it’s now time to offer the same treatment to the most controversial and innovative project of the Norwegian combo, JOYLESS. “Unlimited Hate” has been the starting point of the JOYLESS experience. Originally presented in 1997, part of the album was created for FORGOTTEN WOODS and therefore recalls their typical Norwegian black metal rawness, but filtered through new wave & post-rock elements that made this negative piece of art unique. The cult edition of “Unlimited Hate” includes 3 extra songs that have to be considered, according to Rune Vedaa’s opinion, as the perfect link between the 2 efforts: “Fulfillment and Entity’s Embraced” from the split vs Apokryphus, “Swansmile” and “Room of Velvet Splendour Pt.2” from the “Blue in the Face” 99′ EP. “Wisdom & Arrogance” is of course the second output of the project, but also the first to show JOYLESS in a comprehensive form, an evolution of the first wild signs that characterized the band’s debut, with songs swifting towards more contaminated negative rock territories. The album has been indeed an influence on the scene and was released by the young Kvarforth (Shining) via his personal label Selbstmord Services. Both these albums have become part of the ATMF cult edition series to emphasize their importance in experimenting different forms of hateful and negative music, showing the potential progression that Black Metal would have reached at a later stage, and making of JOYLESS a precursor of that irreverent attitude and creativity later flaunted by bands like Lifelover and Shining. “Unlimited Hate”...
CULT007 FALGAR – La Dama Del Alba

CULT007 FALGAR – La Dama Del Alba

What if Varg Vikernes’ most appreciated masterpieces Hvis Lyset Tar Oss/Filosofem era would be projected on a melancholic and medieval artistic environment ? The answer, improved by skillful arrangements & a prominent emotional vibe, may be “La Dama Del Alba”. ATMF cult editions take back from the ashes another small gem of the very underground, from Falgar, a project moving from the Black Metal fields of this album to recently land to folk territories. Originally released by Nebular Winter Productions on cassette format “La Dama Del Alba” can be in many ways considered as one of the most remarkable manifestations of the post-burzumish depressive/melancholic wave. Forgotten by the most powerful promotional & distribution channels the cult edition finally provides to this small piece of art a whorty form. The edition is enriched by 2 bonus songs “The Whispers of Diana” & “Her Sacred Dwelling”, never released before on cd format, chosen by the artist as representative of the pre-Dama del Alba Falgar artistic form. “La Dama Del Alba” is now a glorious artistic epitaph of the cult edition, together with the more macabre counterpart Beatrik’s “Journey Through the End of Life”.
