New Album “Entering A Timeless Winter” Announced By Talv

Italian atmospheric black metal act Tav is set to release the new album “Entering A Timeless Winter” on November 3rd through A Sad Sadness Song Records. The album is the third full length release from the band.

Hailing from Italy, Talv started in early 2012 under the name of Trees In The Fog. The purpose has always been to merge dissonant and melancholic black metal with a touch of ambient music. Like painting a dismal scenario, Talv’s new effort is drowned into the darkest north-Italian naturalistic black metal inspiration. The cold and freezing guitar sound reminds of Tenebrae in Perpetuum and Beatrik’s classics, while the prevailing desperate feelings position the band within the groove of depressive black metal.

What makes of Talv a personal and unique project is the wise equilibrium between a hateful, cold hunger and a fragile background soundscape. The ColdWorld cover further emphasizes the strong visionary ambient perspective and inspiration of this raising underground project.

The band commented: “‘Entering a Timeless Winter’ is going to reveal the artistic direction of this new cold journey.”

The track listing is:

1. Dreaming a Funeral in Another Life
2. A Sad Moon Concealed by Pines
3. An Eternal Snowfall Will Come
4. Sidereal Hypothermia
5. Winterreise (Coldworld cover)

New Album “Domino” Announced By Sinheresy

Italian symphonic melodic metal act Sinheresy will return with the sophomore full length album “Domino.” The album is expected to drop on April 7th via Scarlet Records and is the follow up to the debut full length “Paint the World” (2013).

Formed in 2009, Sinheresy soon developed a unique blend of metal by adding a wider range of influences going from the symphonic sound of Nightwish and Within Temptation to the progressive approach of Symphony X and Children Of Bodom. The first works “The Spiders And The Butterfly” EP (2011) and “Paint the World” (2013) attracted very positive reactions from fans and critics alike, allowing them to tour all over Europe with renowned acts such as Lordi and Tarja.

The band now ready to come back with their brand new album “Domino.” Superbly mixed to bring out warmth and depth, their new work is a treat for the ears on multiple levels. Not only is the overall sound excellent, but the solid engineering also serves to highlight the strength of Cecilia and Stefano’s vocal performances and displays the raw talents of the band to its fullest.

This is how mastering engineer Mika Jussila of legendary Finnvox Studios commented: “I keep this album as a good example of a modern metal record but don’t want to categorize any more. All tracks are produced and arranged in a very cool way and the sound is modern, punchy and powerful. Listening this you feel happy and energetic at the same time.”

Complex at times and elegantly simple at others, “Domino” is a strong evolutionary step that blends new elements with old, enhancing rather than changing the band’s traditional sound. The track listing for “Domino” is:

1. Domino
2. Star Dome
3. Without A Reason
4. My Only Faith
5. Unspoken Words
6. Under Your Skin
7. The Island Of Salt And Grass
8. Ocean Of Deception
9. Believe
10. …Another Life
