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.

SSS022 LASCAR – Wildlife

SSS022 LASCAR – Wildlife

Dreaming & evocative music as the unique Lascar experience is able to spread, Wildlife is slightly different from Saudade for a more varied songwriting approach, alternating mid tempo to some faster parts, in a more many-sided way. A sensible romantic vision on the naturalistic world is the exact picture that Lascar’s music paints on the canvas. Luckely this mature form of musical evolution is not missing their introspectve target. The sometimes apparently calm feeling give a chance & glimpse to the modern man to further investigate about the sense of loss and misunderstanding of the schizophrenic human evolution. The web lays over our head.

SSS019 TALV – Entering a Timeless Winter

SSS019 TALV – Entering a Timeless Winter

Hailing from Italy, TALV started in early 2012 under the name of Trees In The Fog. Their purpose has always been to merge dissonant and melancholic black metal with a touch of ambient music. Like painting a dismal scenario, Talv’s new effort is drowned into the darkest north-Italian naturalistic black metal inspiration. The cold and freezing guitar sound reminds of Tenebrae in Perpetuum and Beatrik’s classics, while the prevailing desperate feelings position the band within the groove of depressive black metal. What makes of Talv a personal and unique project is the wise equilibrium between a hateful, cold hunger and a fragile background soundscape. The ColdWorld cover further emphasizes the strong visionary ambient perspective and inspiration of this raising underground project. Scheduled for an October 6th release under the banner of A Sad Sadness Song banner on jewelcase edition, Talv’s new album “Entering a Timeless Winter” is going to reveal the artistic direction of this new cold journey.” The new album and the new fresh cooperation with ATMF has been the right time to make a new superb logo by Christophe Szpajdel.

SSS018 LASCAR – Saudade

SSS018 LASCAR – Saudade

Hailing from Chile, LASCAR is back with their sophomore release, “Saudade”, an album that moves exactly along the lines of its illustrious predecessor (“Absence”, 2016), underlining once again the band’s naturalistic approach – masterfully represented by the pictorial artwork – and marking a perfect syncretism of those feelings of loss, fragility and desperation that have always been LASCAR’s trademark. Their emotional post-black metal offers a unique interpretation of the apparent conflict on the naturalistic experience. The “Saudade” implies a sense of abandon and a nostalgic mourning manifested within an artistic environment. Modernity as an appetite for destruction of all natural forms of existence, and the unavoidable emotive fallout that follows. Release date : September 15th, 2017 on Cd format by A Sad Sadnes Song, LP edition (limited edition too) by Thronemaster rec. (some units will be available for Preorder on early September)....
SSS017 FALAISE – My Endless Immensity

SSS017 FALAISE – My Endless Immensity

The sole definition of Depressive Black Metal doesn’t fit anymore to Falaise. With their second effort the italian duo is ready to further cross the boundries of this genre to involve the expanding vision of post-rock and indie tunes. This defragmented vanishing flux of emotions is well shifted on the cover, the mind and the feelings are like swallowed into the infinity of cosmos. A tribute to Amesoeurs is performed with the cover song “Les Ruches Malades” providing a possible chance of comparision. If “As Time Goes Bye” was already an impressive and coherent collection of emotionally heart wrenching songs maturity has been achieved with “My Endless Immensity”, where the different chapters seems like part of a bigger scenario. Tracklist: 1) Nightgaze 2) The Embrace Of Water 3) You Towards Me 4) Crimson Clouds 5) Dreariness 6) The Abyss 7) Sweltering City 8) Pristine Universe 9) A Veil Of Stars 10) Les Ruches Malades (Amesoeurs Cover) Total Playing: 53 mins Release date: September 7th, 2017 Preview Song:...

SSS015 – FALAISE – As Time Goes By

Cd, 2016 After an highly appreciated debut ep, dealing into post-rock territories, Falaise are ready to move on contaminating their musical offer with the depressive and melancholic aura of the greyscale metal. The highly anticipated album showed this progression, reminding in some passages bands like Amesoeurs, Austere, An Autumn for Crippled Children & Woods of Desolation, merged with the liquid rockish shape of the debut ep.
