Paradise Lost - Medusa

2017-08-23 (News)

It is this hideous creature who Paradise Lost have chosen to be the figureheard for their 15th studio album, as, from a philosophical perspective, she is more than simply a monster. Singer Nick Holmes started his research, intrigued to find greater meaning behind the symbol of Medusa.
"Attempts to avoid looking into her eyes represent avoiding the ostensibly depressing reality that the universe is meaningless", is an idea that was adopted by American novelist Jack London, and a thought that could have easily emerged from Paradise Lost’s lyrics over the past 3 decades.

Lacrimosa - Testimonium

2017-08-18 (News)

"In 2016, the world has lost too many great artists - creators of unique moments for eternity! With their art I grew up, their greatness, their megalomania, their uniqueness, their entire work has shaped my childhood and youth and was often my guidance: the visionary versatility of David Bowie, the unmistakable uniqueness of Prince, the depth, melancholy and humbleness of Leonard Cohen! Thanks to their art, I learned not only to listen to music but to feel it! Their art was the inspiration for me to enter into this magic world of music! Now this album is dedicated to all of them - in gratitude"- Tilo Wolff.

Inkubus Sukkubus - Belas Knap

2017-08-04 (News)

‘Belas Knap’ is second album in the ‘Tales of Witchcraft & Wonder’ series by Inkubus Sukkubus. The CD, which is the band’s 22nd release, contains 11 completely new tracks, and 2 radical re-workings of previous material. 'Belas Knap' is a vagabondage through a haunted, sinister world forever bound to the tragedy, misery, passion and violence of the past. 'Belas Knap' takes you to what seems like the rural idyll of fairy tales, to a Cotswold arcadia of the pre-industrial age, only to expose the cold reality of a brutal dystopia of murder, suicide, insanity, jealousy and abuse, where life is short and cruel, and the few moments of joy must be grasped without question, in the moment and with both hands.
