RockmusicRaider Review - Et Moriemur - Ex Nihilo in Nihilum - Album CoverSometimes records sit in the review pipe for no good reason for a very long time. And get passed over time and time again, just to be rediscovered more by accident than by design. This so happened with the Dying Ones from the Czech Republic. In 2014 Et Moriemur unleashed a pretty underrated Doom Metal album called Ex Nihilo In Nihilum via Solitude Productions. Just to get a re-issue very late in 2016 by Minotauro Records. So, why feature this album on the blog now, so very long after the fact?

First because they are good at what they do. There is no mistaking the doomish flavor in everything present on that disc.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

RockmusicRaider Review - My Silent Wake - Damnatio Memoriae - Album CoverDoom Metal is one of the most fascinating genres in the metal multiverse. Ranging from clear voice and female fronted outfits, like Draconian, over the Peaceville Three to the slow marches of Funeral Doom. And it is all about emotion. Some project tear-drenched sadness. And others again go for angry desolation, fueled by everyday issues and concerns.

And this is the emotional scale My Silent Wake project in their album Damnatio Memoriae. Doom Death Metal to be consumed with a pinch of desolation and powered by general anger, even fury. And they deliver it well.   

Damnatio Memoriae literally means Damnation of Memory in Latin.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
