MGR 'Wavering On The Cresting Heft' (limited) LP/CD
CD available here at REDUCED PRICE of 10 EUR until official release date (November 21)!!!
With MGR guitarist Mike Gallagher -of renowned dirge architects ISIS- unveils a compendium of sparse ruminations culled from years of underground musical experience. Gallagher has developed a style characterized by dense, sustained textures coupled with a penchant for the subtle melodicism associated with the post-Sabbath riff. MGR's effectiveness stems from how fluidly Gallagher is able to gradually add texture upon texture, building up the intensity of the tracks until they reach a tragic momentum. Imagine Isis with much of the bombast stripped away, leaving only dark, moody and melancholic soundscapes… MGR (the acronym for Mustard Gas and Roses, which Gallagher has borrowed from a line of Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five), is an emotionally charged amalgamation of sounds that, much to its credit, refuses to fit neatly into any particular category.

MANINKARI 'Le Diable Avec Ses Chevaux DCD
CD available here at REDUCED PRICE of 12,50 EUR until official release date (November 21)!!!
Maninkari’s' first full release (after releasing an EP featuring remixes by JESU and SCANNER) is no less then a gorgeous soft cacophony of epic post rock drift and minimal jazzy shuffle. Using light tribal percussion clouds and swirling melodies songs subtly and dynamically build, flow and spiral. Maninkari manages to add more textures and tonalities with various middle eastern origined instruments like Cymbalom and Santoor, resulting in adventurous and exploring new soundscapes.
This is truly something unforeseen and thoroughly special.
