    Khôrada ‎– Salt (2 × Vinyl, LP)
    Label: Prophecy Productions ‎– PRO227LP
    Format: 2 × Vinyl, LP, Album, clear vinyl
    Country: Germany
    Released: 20 Jul 2018
    Style: Progressive Metal, Alternative Rock

    Rising from the ashes of Agalloch and Giant Squid, a new group is born: Khôrada. Featuring former Agalloch members Don Anderson (guitar), Jason Walton (bass) and Aesop Dekker (drums) alongside ex-Giant Squid guitarist / vocalist Aaron John Gregory, Khôrada creates colossal, textured, and emotionally powerful music.
    As a completely fresh concept, Khôrada is an opportunity for the musicians to explore new soundscapes while challenging themselves creatively. With their debut album «Salt», Khôrada forges breathtaking swathes of sound that swell, stretch, submerge and recede with panoramic power.

    At once atmospheric, aggressive and apocalyptic, the album’s emotion is driven by the band members’ view of today’s world; these are precarious times. «Salt» was written under the pressure and uncertainty of the beginning of the Trump-era, standing as a musical exploration of the routine madness we now live. Paired with the surreally visceral artwork of internationally renowned painter & sculptor Cedric Wentworth, the visual explorations prove to be as haunting as the ethereal vocals of Aaron himself.

    The dissolution of two of America’s most beloved underground groups has resulted in the formation of perhaps the scene’s most highly anticipated new band. With a sound built upon a resolute sense of purpose, Khôrada has arrived.

    Orplid ‎– Greifenherz
    Label: Auerbach Tonträger ‎– AB 020 LTD
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition
    Country: Germany
    Released: 21 Nov 2008
    Style: Modern Classical, Experimental, Neofolk

    Orplid’s martial fourth album

    Two and a half years after «Sterbender Satyr», Orplid are back with their fourth studio album «Greifenherz». In contrast to their previous outing, this album is filled with pathos, a belligerent and archaic piece of work. «Greifenherz» is informed with a surprisingly hostile and cold atmosphere – a partially menacing and martial sound Orplid haven’t applied since some of the more violent outbursts of their early works.
