  • Scotland/Norway goth /darkwave /post-punk collaboration Kill Shelter & Antipole “Raise The Skies” from upcoming album “A Haunted Place” via Manic Depression Records

The coveted alliance between the Kingdom of Scotland and the Kingdom of Norway delivers a heady combination between the Sisters Of Mercy inspired esoteric gothic doom of the former with the Cure-tinged elegant crepuscular gloomy melancholy of the latter, flawless in bringing their distinctive sonic vision into an emotional-ridden and fierce piece of dark guitar-fueled post-punk prowess. An urgent, sinister and cinematic concoction of crisp steady rhythms, buzzing and flashing synth riffs, pulsing low ends, whilst evocative guitar tones switch from wistful entrancing melodies to bursts of searing whines around sinister, alluring male vocals’ nicotine-strained release of chilling omens into the dire, bleeding atmosphere of quivering pain.

  • Pittsburgh, PN Shoegaze /Post-Punk trio DEATH INSTINCT “Silhouettes” new single

Gloomy atmospheric St. Valentine’s murky roses from Pittsburgh trio distil meandering bleak bass line that plagues dry crispy beats, lit by poignant twangy guitar strings glistening over haunted male vocals’ melancholic release of tragic beauty into a cold, dark cinematic chill of eternal depression.

  • California‘s goth/industrial/electronic/darkwave artist Fornicata “Love Like This”                                                 

Californian producer whips up a sharp and kicking storm of persuasive dark electro-industrial vibrations through sinister warbling bassline throbs fueled by a relentless, mechanical, crunchy rhythmic drive to tow radiating alienated synth bursts around harsh euphoric male whispers hypnotic drip of lusty love into intensely grinding atomic dancefloor rhythms.
