U.S. Doomsters APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE will release “Of Woe and Wounds” on November 4 in North America through Cruz Del Sur Music. Decibel Magazine is streaming album track “Luna” exclusively at this location.

With its oppressive and crunching sound, APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE’s “Of Woe and Wounds” will rank among the heaviest album of 2014. From the 7-minute opener “Blackest of Times” to the ending “Luna,” APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE deliver an incredible performance that gives full sense to the sometimes-abused term “DOOM”. Mastered by Tony Reed (producer of last SAINT
VITUS’ album “Lillie: F-65”), this album confirms APOSTLE OF SOLITUDE as a versatile, multi-dimensional doom band that offers the most Sabbath-inspired sound around these days, blended with personal, oppressive yet dynamic atmospheres such as those found in “Push Mortal Coil” or “Whore’s Wings” (re-recorded hits from their 2012′s demo), or the long and haunting “Die Vicar Die”. The album also features the extraordinary work of talented Artist David Csicsely known for his illustrations of Mournful
Congregation, Solitude Aeternus, Wheel, Flight of Sleipnir releases. DOOM has never been so HEAVY!

Finnish MAUSOLEUM GATE releases today the first track off their forthcoming, self-titled debut album to be released by Cruz Del Sur Music on October 10th in Europe and October t7th in USA.

“Magic of the Gypsy Queen” can be streamed here. It is total 80s metal worship, with hypnotic riffs and dramatic, theatrical vocals. MAUSOLEUM GATE’s influences emerge quite clearly from this song. Its debut album will be particularly appreciated by any lover of  late 1970s hard rock  (such as early Scorpions and Uriah Heep), and also early 80s metal (principally Saxon and the weird twists of Cirith Ungol).  The presence of unusual keys (Mellotron and Organ mainly) gives this album a spooky and somewhat tragic atmosphere, with long musical suites such as “Lost Beyond the Sun” and “Mausoleum Gate” that reach the highest peaks of an opera prima that will hardly pass unobserved.

MAUSOLEUM GATE’s out-of-nowhere appearance on the scene came very unexpectedly and immediately turned some heads – the band has already been invited to play at the next edition of famous German “Keep It True Festival” in April 2015 -. We are sure that their debut album will not just turn, but also behead quite a lot of others. [Read the rest of this entry...]
