    Star of Ash - The Thread
    Lovely electronica by the wife of Ihsahn. Also did Peccatum together with him, and earlier also her brother. I find her debut really soothing, but the new album I'm a bit anxious about.

    Release Date: OUT NOW!

    Pronounced "Sex" - XXX
    Zwein and Kim known from trineogkim.no which is known for the cover art of many Norwegian bands is making an ambient album together, this sounds really interesting. I see it as a continuation of Aphrodisiac

    Release Date: OUT NOW!

    Sculptured - Embodiment
    Sculptured is resurected from it's grave after the main writer saw that Sculptured had potential that he didn't see bofre after taking an english class. Sounds somewhat like Agalloch, but more progressive and weird. Seeing that there are two members from Agalloch in the band that's not hard to understand.

    Release Date: OUT NOW!

    Virus - The Black Flux
    Very funky progressive rock from the mind behind Ved Buens Ende.

    Release Date: OUT NOW!
  • Albums I'm looking forward to in 2007

    Ved Buens Ende - TBA
    Finnaly they re-grouped and has an album planned to release in 2007. Kyrck Productions, the greece label known for re-releasing demos also have plans to re-release the "Those who caress the Pale" demo which Ved Buens Ende will make a new track for, as a bonus.

    Release Date: Never

    ______________________________________________________

    OUT NOW

    Mayhem - Ordo ab Chao
    I like their new industrial death black metal style and Blasphemer has said the new record reminds him of Wolfs Lair Abyss so that will be great, also Atilla is back, I like Maniac also though.

    Drudkh - Anti Urban
    A lot from these guys these days, they have recently released Songs of Grief and Solitude which is an all acoustic record of material from previously released records and have already two new releases in the making.

    Dødheimsgard - Supervillain Outcast
    I really loved their last release 666 International and Satanic Art is great too, and I've recently started to really really like their "tr00" record Kronet til Konge. I've heard this album now and it's two steps back, back to Monumental Possessions but still good. Their is some hints of the funky riffs that made 666 International so great here and there too.

    Zweizz - The Yawn of a New Age
    Svein from Fleurety's (and ex-Dødheimsgard) onecrazymanband.

    Solefald - The Linear Scaffold (re-release)
    A really smart move by Avantgarde Music, re-releasing the worlds greatest album ever.

    Solefald - Neonism (re-release)
    A really smart move by Avantgarde Music, re-releasing this awesome album. It's also gonna have a bonus track, cant wait to hear it.

    Manes - How the World Came to an End
    Manes is now signed to Candlelight and have 2 albums planned. The title for the secound album is at the time "Be all//End all". I really liked most parts of the Vilosophe and [view] so this could be good. The one track that was featured on a promo complication sounds great. Im offcourse talking about Deeprouted. Also Cornelius Jakhelln from Solefald contributed with lyrics to this album.

    G.U.T. - My Only Drug is Madness
    Electronica album from the meister Cornelius Jakhelln of Solefald and Sturmgeist. He has recorded a lot with a orchestra in Sofia, Bulgaria and that must be huge, can't wait for this one, out in spring!

    Sigh - Hangmans Hymn
    They get crazyer for each album so will be cool to hear how more insane they are on this one. Only in Japan, only in Japan.. Mirai has said it to be german trash metal with bombastic symphonies and the samples sounds really tivoli like, love it!

    Hardingrock - Grimen
    Ihsahn and Ihriel is making an album together with Knut Buen. Music based around Knut's fiddle. Very folk like.

    Peste Noire - Folkfuck Folie
    These thrashy black metallers from France are truly uniqe at what they do yet they keep the music very simple.

    Drudkh - Estrangement
    Their Blood in our Wells record from 06 where great, far from their first record but still really good. I love their depressive folk black metal. Hoping for another masterpiece.

    Winds - Prominence and Demise
    They make some of the most beautiful music on this planet, the way the stringinstruments fit in with the hard riffs and such is amazing. They where suppose to release this last year but they are lazy I guess.

    Ulver - Shadows of the Sun
    It's probably 6months since Garm said that they where working on a new album and a soundtrack to a new movie so it should be out soon. Shadows of the Sun will be the most personal and dark release from them yet.

    Solefald - The Circular Drain
    Cornelius has said that there will be a complication album from them in the year 2007 to celebrate Solefalds 10 amazing years. The only detail I know at the time is that Svein Egil Hatlevik (ex-Dødheimsgard, Fleurety, Zweizz) will make a remix of a track from Red for Fire.

    Umoral - Umoral
    Svein and Teloch from Nidingr's project together, will release a 7" EP later this year. Very straight forward aggressive black metal.
