RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Cycloscopia - Immured - Album CoverSometimes alternative universes show up in the RockmusicRaider review pipeline that persist. And continue to haunt you throughout your day until you give in and write about it. The band Cyclocosmia in all its spidery glory is one of those. They just unleashed their latest EP Immured this January 2017.

And theirs is a captivating tune. They mix the weirdness of Todtgelichter with the serenity of Darkher with astonishing ease. As with the latter, the questions poses itself if Immured should qualify as metal or not. And again as before, the band gets this metal tinge out into the open that even warms this metalhead’s steely heart.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Darkher – Realms (2016) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Darkher - Realms - Album CoverTo be #metal or not to be, ’tis the question. We are speaking about the début full length album Realms of the (almost) one-woman show Darkher aka Jayn H. Wissenberg. And it is – at first – a difficult proposition. Just to find yourself later in a doomish soundscape that clearly smacks of #metal, apart from the airy, atmospheric, almost folk-laden look and feel this album presents to you. I cannot but be reminded of Myrkur and their latest album M or the weary wails of Loreena McKennitt, both dwelling in the ethereal realm same as this one. Of course, the genres for the former and the latter are totally different.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
