Third Coming Records presents :

Some Ember (Dreamwave/Berlin)
https://someember.bandcamp.com/

::: Submerging The Sun LP release celebration :::

SUBMERGING THE SUN, the second LP by Some Ember, is a journal of climatological grief, intimate vulnerability, and transcendental sadness. Self-produced by songwriter Dylan Travis, the record’s sparse arrangements are weighted by bleak ambience and dramatic vocal turns.
Icy synthesizers pierce veils of fog-like drones, delivering sorrow and catharsis. Tides of dissonance ebb to reveal glittering mirages of
hope, which are just as soon swept away.

Long a fixture of the Oakland, CA musical underground, Some Ember has seen many forms – a solo dream pop bedroom project, a four-piece goth rock outfit, then a hardware-based synth duo, and back again.

Following cassettes on Crash Symbols, Night-People and Ascetic House, the band released their first LP on Dream in 2014 and toured extensively.

In 2015, Travis and longtime collaborator Nina Chase made the move to Berlin. After a tumultuous two years (which saw a further cassette released on Dream, “DEBTS OF LOVE”), the band will release SUBMERGING THE SUN on Third Coming Records in November 2018.

LUNACY (Darkwave/Noise/Philadelphia)
https://lunacy.bandcamp.com/

“This is a sonic walk-through of landscapes that no longer exist. This is the drip of electronic water on memories of something deep in rooms without a view. Echoes of human activity resonating in the factory chapel, the walls and sentiments covered with moss.” -Roy Montgomery

“As haunting as their songs are, they are beautiful. With each listen this project takes you to a deep, dark, murky place where sound has the power to change your reality!” – CVLT Nation

“A slow burner, distorted and obscure, visionary and obsessive, Lunacy’s distinctive sonic craftsmanship will crawl under your skin and linger and “sediment” in your mind indefinitely.” – White Light//White Heat

Offermose (Dungeon Synth/Copenhagen)
https://offermose.bandcamp.com/

“I saw the seasons change like stages of putrefaction in my decaying flesh Spring came darkest of all sprouting death-like flowers through puss-filled pores Silent screams choked by earth echoed in my skull from a thousand dead Bodies buried deep below forever suffocating in their final breath”

Worn Pop in Berlin: Super Besse (BY) + label residents showcase

“Worn Pop is a music organization based in Kiev and was formed by Nikita Netrebko in 2013 to develop Ukrainian coldwave movement by doing shows with guests from abroad, as well as managing and releasing artists coming from the local scene. Their first releases was produced in 2014 on cassettes and CD’s and were basically full DIY from recording at home till cutting cassette tape and assembling them back and were selling mostly offline. Later they stretch their genre palette a lot, but saved own image where all artists in rooster or line-up fit each other by mood and overall atmosphere. Being concentrated mostly on booking shows in 2015 – 2017 Worn Pop became well-known in Ukraine and through out some music scenes in Europe, so time has come for coming back to releasing. The residents of the label go on tour dedicated to their new releases in August of 2018 through Kiev, Lviv, Berlin, Copenhagen, Warsaw and Kalabalik Pa Tyrolen in Sweden.”

Age Eternal, Dune Messiah

Instruments of Discipline, Third Coming Records & Premium Abundance present :

Age Eternal (DE) – Release party –
https://ageeternal.bandcamp.com/

Age Eternal is the solo project of german musician and visual artist Lissa Benno. Since 2015, she has been diving into the subconscious to find her own musical language. With reverb-drenched guitars, hypnotic synths and ethereal vocals she creates a dreamy yet heavy haze. Her influences come from a wide variety of musical styles such as Ambient or Krautrock while she is also drawn to pop-music and mysticism.

“Wash Away” is a meditation about change as an universal force that is both fulfilling and terrifying. “Before and throughout the writing of the record I saw myself confronted with significant alterations in my daily life, which I sometimes had a hard time dealing with” says Lissa. The record bows down to that mighty ruthless force that is entrenched into everyone and everything that surrounds us and the potential that lies within it.

This LP is co-released by Third Coming Records (fr), Instruments Of Discipline (de), Premium Abundance (dk).

Dune Messiah (DK)
https://dunemessiah.bandcamp.com/

The man in black fled across the dessert, and the gunslinger followed. With those words, Stephen King begins his Magnum Opus, The Dark Tower. But the phrase might as well be a graphical, description of the neofolk band Dune Messiah.

Hailing from Copenhagen, the three-piece, which is architectured by Magnus Westergaard, shoots through its listener with visceral honesty. Dark, romantic and personal, the band bares itself completely, engulfing the listener in candid stories of love, loss and mysticism told with both finesse and violence.

Dune Messiah released their debut album, The Iron Oak, in March 2017. On the following tour in Europe and Denmark, the band supported American neofolk pioneer King Dude and Drab Majesty.

On stage, Dune Messiah is a blazing, intense experience. Inspired by all forms of art that deals in immuteability (from Leonard Cohen to Edgar Allan Poe and Federico Fellini), the band inescapably channels its demanding themes. It is both terrifying and beautiful to behold.

But no matter the wickedness displayed live, the monstrosities enforced by the instruments or the heartbreaking truths told through the lyrics, Dune Messiah’s raison d’être is to capture and project honesty. A concept that, like the man dressed in black, fleetingly runs ahead in this barren, truthless world.

RA (SE)
https://ramalmo.bandcamp.com/

The four creative souls in RA get their energy out of despair, loss, frustration and restlessness. They started out as a psychedelic rock quintet but after just one EP they sadly lost one of their members. The loss and their life in Malmö are shown in the, recently released mini documentary – RA – Malmö Mentality. The band didn’t dissolve, instead they canalized their friendship into what should become their debut album – Scandinavia. The album is a whirlwind of punk, feedback, haunting vocals, melodic guitar riffs and pounding bass. The album took the band out on the road and it gained a lot of attention around the world, placing them in some kind of Nordic Noir Post-punk file, together with iceage, Holograms, Lust For Youth etc. Other comparisons were made to Deafheaven, Bauhaus, and A Place to Bury Strangers, now that is gone.

Here we have the first release since the album, and the band has moved forward. This is a more electronic sound landscape, it is gloomy, it is staring, slower, melodic, almost romantic but equally intense. We find more members than the drummer and vocalist Simon, behind the microphone, more voices, less noise, contemplation. This is a band that never rests. All held together by producer Joakim Lindberg that has produced everything with the band up to date.

”We left our rough punk sound and tried to explore another feeling, a more romantic feeling. We gave ourself time to think and reflect and worked more with the song structures.”

DJ sets by Louis X Legris (Third Coming Records) & Luna Violenta (Instruments Of Discipline).

Berlin based label Foul-Up presents the launch party for its sophomore release, Metalized Man’s debut album “Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy’s First Adventures in Manhood”.

EGYPTRIXX (Live)
Canada

Foul-Up has invited Toronto’s Egyptrixx as a special guest gracing the night with a live set just a few weeks after the release of his fourth album “Pure, Beyond Reproach”.
Since the release of his debut album on Night Slugs in 2011, Egyptrixx’s “celestial club music” has gradually moved further towards abstract territories while never departing the pulse of the club. Over the course of three albums, several EPs and multiple other projects, Egyptrixx has perfected his very own unique strain of high-gloss-industrial techno-centric sharp-edged club deconstructions.
His fourth album comes after a busy 2016, having launched the experimental solo endeavour Ceramic TL, new duo Limit (together with L-Vis 1990, co-founder of Night Slugs) and his NTS show Halocline Trance (sharing name with the record label he formed in 2015).

ZIÚR
Germany

Also guesting the night is Ziúr, an artist that is – as her biography reads – “dedicated to combining different sonic textures and brainy beats into a functional dancefloor framework”.

Ziúr is a co-founder of BOO HOO, an open-ended Berlin night committed to fighting discrimination. As a DJ her undertaking is equally diverse, with an anarchistic approach she dismantles genre-barriers, something which is perfectly paralleled in her own productions where aggressive brutality is rendered with a strange poise.
Since putting out her self-released debut mixtape mid-2015, Ziúr’s schedule has taken off in regards to both touring and studio work. 2016 saw the release of two EPs (on Infinite Machine and Objects Ltd.) and in 2017, Ziúr will release her debut album as a joint effort between Objects Ltd. and Planet Mu.

METALIZED MAN (Live – Berlin debut)
Denmark

The night in question will be presenting the Berlin live debut by Metalized Man who on the preceding day will be releasing his debut full length on Foul-Up. The album – titled “Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy’s First Adventures in Manhood” – finds the artist showcasing his own unique sound – alien yet familiar, fusing elements from industrial, ambient, techno and trance.
The record follows two previous cassette EPs on Danish imprint Infinite Waves, and was predominantly conceived in live sessions at the artist’s rehearsal space at Copenhagen’s Mayhem.
The album’s press release describes the artist’s sound as “rich of a spectrum that extends from the murkiest shades to the brightest hues with a zest of trancey tropes. ‘Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy’s First Adventures in Manhood’ reacts and evolves like a steady biotope submitted to diverse levels of pressure, constantly shifting scales and tempo – from a deep green palette of organic drops and crackles to the sleek vibrancy of multi-faceted synthetic layers – punctured by paranoid ostinatos. ‘Losing Your Virginity…’ shines for setting up its own deeply evocative cinematic playgrounds. Images rise to the surface in a deftly-manoeuvered chaos of sound.”

BEASTIE RESPOND
Denmark

The urge to fuse elements from different musical periods and styles is the key drive behind the Beastie Respond moniker.
Between 2011 and 2013 Danish label Teal Recordings released Beastie Respond’s first three EPs followed by the debut album “Fictitious Nostalgia”. Over the course of his Teal releases, the artist moved from making distinct drum’n’bass tunes to having his own genre-defying sound.
While over the following years having contributed tracks to Dylan & Loxy’s Cylon Recordings and dBridge’s Exit Records, the proper follow-up to Beastie Respond’s debut full-length came in 2016 with the EP “Back to the Future” on Copenhagen’s Circle Vision imprint.
Now, once again, Beastie Respond has given his own sound a complete makeover ahead of a big new project to come out in 2017.
Expect an ADHD-fuelled melting pot of sounds and unreleased productions in Beastie Respond’s ever-eclectic DJ sets!

MISANTROP
Germany/Denmark

Danish-born and Berlin-based Misantrop is the founder of Foul-Up, having released his (and the label’s) debut EP “Limerence” in late 2016.
While a first impression of the EP typically would be one of approaching disparate yet classic club-trajectories, a more detailed listen reveals that the EPs coherence is found in more subtle places – in the more introverted and experimental influences.
A set by Misantrop aims to keep the listeners alert by drawing sounds from a broad sonic territory and embracing stylistic chaos, as well as the occasional foul-up.

JAMES NUNN (Video)

After having debuted his maiden video installation at a series of Foul-Up events celebrating the label’s first release, James Nunn now presents the project’s second revision.

Castle – Albez Duz

CASTLE is pleased to announce the release of their breakout fourth full-length this Summer via Ván Records worldwide.

Titled Welcome To The Graveyard, the follow up to 2014’s critically-lauded Under Siege was recorded by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, Eyehategod, Ommadon et al) at Type Foundry Studios in Portland, Oregon this past Winter. Welcome To The Graveyard is set for official unveiling July 15th.

Comprised of 8 tracks written over the last year, Welcome To The Graveyard sees CASTLE merge their doom powered riffing with soaring 1970s rock . The album features a new level of confident songwriting and is a creepy-crawl through the wastelands of the band’s new L.A. ­­home; a hard-boiled barrage of classic heavy metal riffery tempered with blasts of melodic orchestrated doom. The perfect soundtrack for a Hollywood cult initiation.

Elizabeth Blackwell’s haunted vocal style draws a sigil of death and madness – imagine the Wilson sisters singing hymns from the stygian void, while lyrically CASTLE adapt the stark and compelling vistas of Aleister Crowley’s “Amphora” for the song “Traitors Rune” and Eliphas Levi’s “Transcendental Magic”, whose mystic rumination inspires the lyrical backdrop for the lead-off single “Flash of the Pentagram”.

CASTLE was forged in San Francisco in 2009 and released their debut full-length, In Witch Order, on Germany’s Ván Records in 2011. The album brought light to the newly-formed band and earned them “Album Of The Year” honors from Metal Hammer Norway, as well as Roadburn Festival’s “Newcomer Of The Year.” Shortly thereafter, the band joined the Prosthetic Records roster in North America and released their critically-adored sophomore album Blacklands. The record left to a Canadian JUNO nomination for “Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year.” CASTLE performed over two-hundred shows worldwide in support of the release alongside the likes of The Sword, Conan, Intronaut and Pentagram among many others as well as appearances at some of the underground’s largest fests including Roadburn and the London and Berlin Desertfests.

Since the release of Under Siege in 2014, CASTLE, which consists of vocalist/bassist Liz Blackwell, guitarist/vocalist Mat Davis and drummer Al McCartney, has maintained a relentless touring schedule with multiple expeditions throughout the US, Europe and Canada including stops at the 2015 edition of Heavy Days In Doomtown Fest in Copenhagen, Denmark and the Acherontic Arts Fest in Oberhausen, Germany.

CASTLE, who recently announced a three week run of tour dates around their appearance at the Maryland Doom Fest on June 24 will continue touring across the U.S. throughout July and August with the announcement of 32 additional dates. The month-long headlining trek, which follows the release of “Welcome to the Graveyard”, commences July 17 in Fullerton, CA. Expect Canadian and European dates in support of “Welcome To The Graveyard”.

Occult doom rock band ALBEZ DUZ emerged from the dark corners of Berlin in 2006. Formed by Eugen “Impurus” Herbst initially as a one-man side project, the band’s ominous debut was recorded in 2009 with singer Lars Kaeding; but after Kaeding’s death, the band stepped into the shadows for the next three years. With a lingering fire and purpose, Herbst continued to write for ALBEZ DUZ , and after an exhaustive search crossed paths with Alfonso Brito whose voice seemed destined for the project. In September 2014, the duo brought the band’s second album “The Coming of Mictlan” to life via Iron Bonehead Records and Archaic Sound. They began performing live shortly after.

ALBEZ DUZ has since shared the stage with iconic acts such as PRIMORDIAL and SWANS as well as other rising talent including BÖLZER, ASCENSION and HEXVESSEL. In a short time, the Berliners established themselves as a force in the European underground and elicited high praise from both critics and audiences alike. ALBEZ DUZ recently entered The Source Studios Munich to record its third full-length album, “Wings of Tzinacan”, with producer and audio engineer Michael Zech ( SECRETS OF THE MOON, TRIPTYKON, ASCENSION ). Guitarist Julia Neuman has joined their ranks, solidifying the band as an unstoppable power trio.

With a twilight performance at the prestigious Speckjaga Funkenflug Festival already checked off the band’s list in 2016, and other appearances scheduled at In Flammen Open Air, De Mortem et Diabolum and more, ALBEZ DUZ is burning its flame higher and brighter, ready to cast a spell on the globe and initiate a new chapter in doom. The gates are open !
