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. Catalogue number : SSS023  FIle under: Blackgaze Tracklist: 1) Intro  2:13 2) Once, My Home  7:16 3) When The Sun Was Warming My Heart  6:01 4) A Place I Don_t Belong To   5:17 5)  An Emptiness Full Of You   6:47 6) Leaves In The Wind    6:12 7) Consumed Soul  5:59 8) Holding Nothing  5:48 Total Running Time: 45:33... read more

DTP038 AERA – The Craving Within

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”... read more

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”. Cat Number: CULT007 tracklist: 1.    Invocación    01:11 2.    La dama del alba    06:57 3.    Renacimiento    06:25 4.    Seguiré    05:46 5.    Fango y frío    05:11 6.    Laberintos    05:54 7.    Artemisa    06:25 8.    The Whispers of Diana  06:32 9.    Her Sacred Dwelling   08:32 Total Duration: 52 min 53 sec ATMF bandcamp / Falgar  – La Dama Del Alba https://atmfsssdtp.bandcamp.com/album/la-dama-del-alba ATMF eshop:... read more

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. Release Date: October 25th, 2018 Cat Number: SSS022 Tracklist: 1 The Disdain 06:27 2 Petals 06:06 3 Submission 05:57 4 the Zenith 06:43 5 Fatigure 07:01 6 The Majestic Decay 08:02 Total Running Time: 40 min 26 sec Pre-order via Bandcamp & 2 songs streaming preview: https://atmfsssdtp.bandcamp.com/album/wildlife ATMF ESHOP PREORDER:... read more

DTP037 ELEGIAC – Pagan Storm

Forging the New wave of USBM ELEGIAC are into this creative and productive overwhelming attitude that all the most influent bands of the ’90 where in at their very beginning. Nevertheless ”Pagan Storm” is moving from the more straight ahead approach of the previous “Black Clouds of War” to a more varied and mature song-writing, alternating the typical assaults to solid imposing mid tempos. The feeling getting in to the album is to proceed deeper and deeper into the heritage gut. Pagan Storm dwells with the most typical references of the early Scandinavian heritage influenced by the more pragmatic synthesis of the USBM roughness. On the aesthetic musically manifested on a rude attitude, not caring about all the modern post frills, we can perceive “Pagan Storm” as the voice of the rotten ruins, an echo of the primordial hate. Strictly limited to 300 copies edition on the same quality digipak format. 1. Rituals of War 8:17 2. Allegiance and Honor 5:07 3. Somber Morning 10:20 4. Through Ancient Eyes 7:33 5.

Kommandant – Blood Eel cat number: ATMF047 1 Absolutum 4:05 2 Blood Eel 7:15 3 The Struggle 5:25 4 Ice Giant 8:47 5 Cimmerian Thrust 7:42 6 Aeon Generator 7:10 7 Moon…The Last Man 8:14 Total running time 48:38 min During their years of activity KOMMANDANT showed how consistency can match in a constructive way with progression forging a solid extreme metal aggression. The misappropriate ear can easily point out how a crossover of Black Metal & Brutal Death can be a label for KOMMANDANT, but the story is far more complex. “Blood Eel” is the most obvious symptom of this artistic path. The production is taking the coldness of the ’90 bm fetish to a professional and powerful soundscape where all instruments take part to the murderous party. Drums performance is huge and if any reference can be recalled as the Marduk capability of Panzer Division, this one meets the darker and oppressive side of Black Metal on the guitars side. Following the eureka moment of the cover the cruelty of human nature meets the purity and apparent starlit calm of the cosmos, with something breeding on the background ready to explode. The moment after the first atmospheric suspense of the intro is a storm of aggression, where the few moments of peaceful interludes just make the whole thing even more impressive. KOMMANDANT combine the strength of Marduk & Infernal War with the subtle shadings of conceptual depth. Feeding on the confusion and scorn of our times, this is the sonic renaissance annealed by a hammer of destruction. “Blood Eel” will see the light on 2 high quality... read more
