DAEMONIA NYMPHE released new EP

DAEMONIA NYMPHE - Witches Lullaby

Greek folk acoustic project Δαιμονία Νύμφη (Daemonia Nymphe) has recently released its new 5-track EP “Witches’ Lullaby“. These songs were originally composed for the play Macbeth, which was staged at the National Theatre of Northern Greece, directed by Anastasia Revi. In the play, this melody represented the Shakespearean witches, enigmatic and dangerous beings who manipulate Macbeth and make us wonder if they are, in fact, the Fates. The lullaby is a melody that symbolizes birth; a new life. Even in ancient Greek mythology, life was influenced by the Fates, “Clotho”, “Lachesis” and “Atropos”. The first represented the present, the second the future and the third the past, all that has happened and cannot be changed. Lullabies have Read more

ZGARD announce new album

ZGARD - Place of Power

Ukrainian pagan black metal one man project Zgard will release its upcoming full-length album “Place of Power” on May 21st, 2021 via Schwarzdorn Production. Zgard is truly a remarkable phenomenon in the Ukrainian metal scene. Geographically located far from Ukraine’s music centers, like Kharkov and Kiev, Yaromisl managed to create his own unique style. Is it the nature of the Carpathians, or residence near the mountain Bogit, where a Zbruch Idol (9th-century Svetovid sculpture and one of very few monuments of pre-Christian Slavic beliefs) was located, which so influenced Yaromisl to create the music of Zgard? Either way, the result speaks for itself! In 2019 Yaromisl finished the recording of his seventh studio album, “Place of Power“. Zgard created eight fascinating epic pagan black metal songs.
