Dear friends, welcome to the second installment of our coverage regarding the upcoming Czech edition of the pilgrimage into the black metal netherworld by the English writer and journalist Dayal Patterson. Today, we are delving into the first act, originally unleashed in 2013 by the U.S. publisher Feral House, of this four-installments long saga.

Dear friends, at last our release plan for 2021 kicks off, and with a double release at that! Last year, we ended on a literary note, this year we are picking up where we left off, heading into the history of one of the cornerstones of extreme metal, of a genre where blasphemy, evil, darkness and nihilism reign; simply put, into the history of black metal!

Dear friends, our comrades from the Czech cyber metal orchestra MINORITY SOUND have just released a new single entitled "Cyberdosed"! As the title suggests, it is something of a definitive conclusion to the 2019 “Toxin” full-length.

Dear friends, we hope that you had pleasant holidays, as well as that you got through this year, which was really something to put it mildly, without harm.

Let us believe that the dawn of better times is at hand.

Dear friends, here is the final segment of our "talks" for this year, and since this series follows closely our release plan, our conlcuding guests are of course Lukáš Hořínek and Alexandr "Krusty" Nováček, authors of the recently published book "Diagnóza 19932020: Syndrom zapomenutého ticha", the official history of the band FORGOTTEN SILENCE, which constituted the bulk of our interview. Enjoy!

Dear friends, welcome to the next installment of our "talks", the protagonist of which is understandably the Czech post-metal/doom quintet The Corona Lantern and their recently released macabre opus "Certa Omnibus Hora". Regarding other topics, we also talked the musical evolution the band went through (if only given the time separating this piece from its predecessor "Consuming the Tempest"), or the position of this very distinct genre on the scene. Enjoy!
