    There is evidence that shows the existence in ancient times of an arcane civilization that controlled much of the West and even Greece and Egypt itself. The Atlantis empire was a confederation of different kingdoms located in the ancient Thule, which together formed an empire that ruled for nearly 3000 years the Mediterranean. They were experts in different subjects such as astronomy, navigation or metallurgy, one of their greatest legacies being megalithic monuments. Political and religious interests caused the oblivion of this civilization, in addition to the false legends that pushed the destruction of the myth. Precursor of Greco-Roman mythology, the Atlantean lineage was recovered over time by Julius Caesar himself for his own benefit as propaganda of the Roman Empire, becoming a living god, like the kings of Atlantis.

    Many will be the historians, archaeologists and researchers of all time who will try to decipher the mystery of Atlantis. Especially, after Schiemann discovered the city of Troy following the clues found in Homer’s readings. The hypotheses about their possible settlement have been, in most cases, speculative and with little scientific basis. Surely one of those that has gained more strength is that which relates it to Greece (Minoan culture) and Spain (Tartessian… more

    Existen evidencias que demuestran la existencia en tiempos antiguos de una arcana civilización que controló gran parte de Occidente e incluso Grecia y el propio Egipto. El imperio Atlantis era una confederación de distintos reinos ubicados en la antigua Thule, que unidos conformaron un imperio que gobernó durante cerca de 3000 años el Mediterráneo. Eran expertos en distintas materias como la astronomía, la navegación o la metalurgia, siendo uno de sus mayores legados los monumentos megalíticos. Intereses políticos y religiosos provocaron el olvido de esta civilización, además de las falsas leyendas que empujaron a la destrucción del mito. Precursor de la mitología grecorromana, el linaje atlante fue recuperado con el paso del tiempo por el mismísimo Julio Cesar para su propio provecho como propaganda del Imperio Romano, convirtiéndose en un dios viviente, como los reyes de la Atlántida. 

    Muchos serán los historiadores, arqueólogos e investigadores de todos los tiempos que intentarán descifrar el misterio de la Atlántida. Sobre todo, después de que Schiemann descubriera la ciudad de Troya siguiendo las pistas encontradas en las lecturas de Homero. Las hipótesis sobre su posible asentamiento han sido, en la mayoría de los casos, especulativas y con escasa base científica. Seguramente una de las que ha cobrado más fuerza es aquella que la relaciona con Grecia (Cultura minoica) y España (cultura tartésica). En ese sentido, las teorías encontraron afinidad con algunos topónimos mencionados por Plantón y que hace referencia al Mediterráneo, África y a la que fuera colonia fenicia de Gades.

    Exit In Grey ‎– Истерика Вечного
    Label: Frozen Light ‎– FZL 044, Zhelezobeton ‎– ZHB-LXIV
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition, Numbered, Remastered
    Country: Russia
    Released: 26 Aug 2016
    Style: Drone, Dark Ambient

    Radiowaves rustle, layers of ether interference whisper and an electric guitar carefully draws gentle tonal vibrations… The new album by Exit In Grey is indeed largely based on sounds of radio noises, so close to our heart. Although of course this is not a noisy work but rather oneiric, contemplative, shimmering… In two multilayered 20-min long collages we can hear the elements of nature and man-made objects, fragments of random radio interceptions and melancholic guitar parts piercing dark space with its bright emotionality.

    The material was recorded by Sergey [S] in March 2011 and mastered by Oleg Hurvatov (Interior Disposition) in 2016. Co-release with Zhelezobeton (St. Petersburg, Russia) – zhb.radionoise.ru.

    English title: «Hysterics Of The Eternal».

    HIEMIS – Nachtstücke

    Label: Gradual Hate Records – GH05 MP3
    Format: Digital 
    Country: Spain
    Released: 2018
    Style: Dark Ambient, Drone, Minimal

    There is a parallel world to which we all live, and it is made up of chance, intuitions, fears, mysteries… Hoffmann explored, in everyday life, that hidden reality that can be guessed in dreams, visions, ghosts, funerary stories, scientific machinations. In short, a world full of strange and mysterious forces, which are able to play with the life and illusions of all of us.

    “Nachtstücke” is a look at that universe where disturbing characters live that become oracles, supposedly trivial images that contain a mystery, as well as threatening inventions that never cease to amaze us. Thus, dreams, magnetism, telekinesis, somnambulism, forebodings, premonition and telepathy make up the matter of this disturbing reality 

    First sound work (“only be published in digital format” ) by Juan Carlos Toledo (Silent Love of Death) dark environments full of nuances and sparkles, subtle orchestration, minimalism sound.
