  • Leipzig, Germany techno/coldwave/darkwave/synth solo project, нат.аша ‘hym.ne’ first track from the upcoming new album “Leere Spiegel”

Dark-wavey one-man-band from Leipzig under the enigmatic moniker of нат.аша is refining, in the last year, his analog synth-driven sound on the forgotten by some, albeit not by all, Soundcloud, which mixes urgent pounding rhythms, unsettling, obsessive synth melodies, ominous buzzing basslines, with acid, techno and rave undertones, in an increasingly convincing way, with above all a heap of anxious darkness. In the first preview from the ongoing new album “Leere Spiegel”, his simmering, agitated male vocals unleash determined finality “We will never see each other again.”

  • Guadalajara, Mexico dark rock /post-punk /gothic rock trio Animal Rojo “No Second Part” new single

Swirling and energetic, finely crafted, dark Gothic Rock from Guadalajara, weaves wicked, razor-sharp guitar riffs and blazing wandering melodies with menacing grinding bass lines, and punchy rhythms to ignite seething chaos around dark, intense male vocals releasing vengeance into the apocalyptical doom.

  • Belgian post-punk /darkwave /’epitaph pop’ duo from Antwerp, Sebastian Melmoth “Fallen House” off the cassette EP “Mourning Glory” on Perfect Aesthetics

Out from a batch of 9 tape releases to celebrate 5 years of Russian label Perfect Aesthetics, dig the ghostly darkwave of Haunted as well, Wildean named Belgian duo Sebastian Melmoth deliver five chilling dark post-punk dirges punctuated by industrialized martial and obsessively mechanical rhythms along with relentless bleak droning low ends, awash by mourning, solemn waving synth swirls around detached, distorted growling male vocals, harshly releasing primal pain into funereal and decadent icy cold realms, where affliction reigns unchallenged, in an eternal descent into the darkest crypt of the human souls, dimed by modern-day fear, pain, and disenchantment.
