Succopuss is a heavy blues trio from Vienna, Austria. Their unmistakeable roots & musical background is based deep in the Blues. Krystof Hümer & Tobias Paul formed the band in 2013. Michael Westerkam joined the band on Saxophone & Backing Vocals and is an indispensable element in the bands sound. The trio plays an interesting blend of jazzy blues & heavy rock spiced up with rum-soaked vocals. This constellation could be heard already on their highly acclaimed eponymous 4 Track EP, released in 2017.

The new album “Zuckerguss” was  released on October 2,2020 via StoneFree Records. It‘s the first full length album and marks a highlight in the bands history.

Savanah is an austrian Stoner Rock Trio from Graz, formed in 2014.
They suppported bands like Colour Haze, Karma to Burn, Rotor, Black Cobra, Seven That Spells, Black Rainbows and Acid King.

The band takes influences from Doom, Desert and Psychedelic Rock to create their unique sound, once described as aggressive Stoner with a deafening bass and powerful riffs. Energetic Live-Performances are part of the bands character and attitude.

That the inspiration for the name Ozymandias was actually drawn from the TV-series “Breaking Bad”, when Walter White recites the thusly named poem by Shelley – pah! Education from TV is still education. If you fuse various styles of metal into your own sound, if you aren’t scared of heavy old-fashioned hard rock, you’re not that busy reading …

Rather scream until your voice fails and then batter the guitar strings! That led to nine songs that you will be hard pressed to forget. You don’t think so? Listen to this!

Since their inception in 2006, Doomina have made a conscious effort to transform their influences in to an original and independent product (both conceptually and through their releases) and even after swelling to a quintet, this approach has not been lost. It wouldn’t be entirely wrong to call their music post rock, but at the same time it sells Doomina’s artistic vision short.

Although Daniel Gedermann cites bands like Mogwai and Explosions In The Sky as major influences, Doomina ultimately sound like all and none of these bands. First and foremost, they sound like themselves. Daniel describes it as “emotions set to sound”. These emotions however, should not be vocalized with the help of a human voice but solely by their instrumentation.

Forget about everyday stuff and step into an adventurous fantasy world. That’s what Hällas want those who listen to their records or see their live shows to experience.

Quite obviously a growing number of people are drawn to the quintet’s 70’s inspired and dynamic mix of progressive rock, metal and folk. The upcoming album Conundrum, the third and last part of a trilogy, may be their most varied and complex so far, but still essential Hällas in its sound and lyricism.

Hällas, founded in 2011, got something of an underground breakthrough with the previous album Excerpts From A Future Past (2017) and its hit single Star Rider.



On Jan 31st 2020 their new album Conundrum was released.

rmv-grammofon.lnk.to/hallas



It´s easy to grow fond of Night. It´s easy to say that their influences today could be found in history with artists as Phil Lynott, Mark Knopfler, or Scorpions ’76, or Blue Öyster Cult around ’77. But it´s so much more. With their last album ‘Raft of the World’ (2017 The Sign Records) the band got hails from most part of the rock scene. The dark album moved the band several steps away from the NWOBHM background and towards a proto-metal atmosphere of the ’70s.

Night keeps moving and during the spring of 2020 the band is releasing a two-track 7” called ’Feeling it Everywhere’. The directions of the new tracks take the band even more into the rhythm and style where the ’70s collided with the ’80s. Where Rock music meets up with Disco. It was a golden age for music, and the go-to period for many bands to find their influences. The recording was done as an in-studio live session to keep the feeling of live music.

Night is preparing to release their new album set for release in autumn 2020. The band is once again taking help from producer Ola Ersfjord (Primordial, Dead Lord, Imperial State Electric) that the band started to work with on ’Raft of the World’.

12.2. HEXVESSEL

Founded in the magical forests of Finland, via the green and pleasant lands of England and Ireland, HEXVESSEL are wyrd folk. Formed in 2009 by Mat “Kvohst” McNerney, who having already made a name for himself in extreme metal bands in the UK where he was born and raised, and again in the Norwegian Black Metal scene, finally found his home in the land of the midnight sun. Settling in a country where mythology, tradition and pre-Christian heritage is still alive McNerney, (who also fronts 1980s-excess-tinged gothic pop band Grave Pleasures), found solace in the constant reflection of Finland’s pagan past, awakening secret knowledge that led to the formation of HEXVESSEL.

Since acclaimed debut album “Dawnbearer” (2011), HEXVESSEL have released two further albums of forest folk and bewitching psychedelia. They have played sold out headline tours in their homeland, been nominated for 2 Finnish Grammy awards, toured Europe together with bands like Sabbath Assembly and Alcest, graced the main stage at Roadburn in Holland and performed at SXSW in Texas, seeing their music on the charts and on many critics lists. They embellished their sonic rituals with mushroom-induced psychedelia on third and most recent best-selling album “When We Are Death” to widespread critical acclaim and continue to develop their sound. Their new album “All Tree” sees the band expand upon McNerney’s personal spiritual journey. Reunited with his co-songwriter from “Dawnbearer”, Andrew McIvor, they unfurl their primordial storytelling with a contemporary command of song-craft.

During the writing of “All Tree”, as he sat by the fire in his summerhouse in the Finnish wilderness, McNerney recalled the summers of his youth, spent listening to Celtic ghost stories on his father’s family farm in Galway, Ireland. He began to write music that grew out of that connection between myth and nature and wanted the album to symbolise a pathway toward a spiritual revival of the old fables. From a youth spent in pastoral England to the boggy marsh woods of Ireland, to his homeland forests of Finland, McNerney’s HEXVESSEL reveals nature’s universal tales of hidden spirits. The pagan wilds are portals to reality. You go through them and you enter the universe.


HEXVESSEL write songs in the oral tradition of the old balladeers. They weave everyman stories that create a bond between the teller and the audience, bringing alive a sense of shared purpose and spiritual history. With wife and collaborator Marja Konttinen, like-minded troubadour and co-writer Kimmo Helén, guitarist Jesse Heikkinen, the primal rhythms of Jukka Rämänen (Dark Buddha Rising), and the occult found-sounds of Antti Haapapuro (Aural Hypnox/Arktau Eos), HEXVESSEL has truly become a melting cauldron or “vessel,” a potent “hex” of spellwork.


By drawing on older folk acts like Shirley Collins, Vashti Bunyan, later folk rock bands such as Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention and King Crimson, to more recent artists such as Nick Cave and Coil, imbued with Karelian and Nordic folklore rhythms, HEXVESSEL have created a sound that is both ancient and modern. “All Tree” is about connection and roots, bringing the spirits of the past that we all share to a more mystical and fulfilling vision of the future.

24.11. EARTH + HELEN MONEY

Earth is an American musical group based in Seattle, Washington, formed in 1989 and led by guitarist Dylan Carlson. Earth’s music is mostly instrumental, and can be divided into two distinct stages. Their early work grew out of the Seattle-area grunge scene and is recognized as pioneering the genre of drone doom — an experimental offshoot of doom metal, characterized by droning, minimalist, lengthy, and repetitive structures.


Earth’s early albums were usually recorded as a duo (Carlson and a bass guitarist), and could be seen as a variation of the experimental doom-influenced metal of The Melvins. Earth currently features a markedly different sound, slow-paced and lengthy, but now with a drummer and featuring strong elements of country music and jazz.

With their latest album “Full Upon Her Burning Lips”, Earth purges the layers of auxiliary instrumentation that embellished some of their previous records and deconstructed their dynamic to the core duo of Dylan Carlson on guitar and bass and Adrienne Davies on drums and percussion. In the process, they tapped into the Platonic ideal of Earth—an incarnation of the long running band bolstered by the authority of purpose, where every note and every strike on the drum kit carries the weight of the world.

Full Upon Her Burning Lips opens with “Datura’s Crimson Veils”, a twelve-minute opus that adheres to Earth’s 21st century approach with Carlson’s sepia-toned Bakersfield Sound guitars lurching across a barren landscape while Davies punctuates the melodies with death knell drums. It’s a sound that harkens back to the riff-constructed vistas of their Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light albums, but stripped of their ornateness.

“It was definitely a very organically developed record,” Carlson says of the process. “I limited the number of effects I used. I always like the limiting of materials to force oneself to employ them more creatively. Previous Earth records were quite lush sounding, and I wanted a more upfront and drier sound, using very few studio effects.” In less capable hands, these kinds of limitations might diminish the aural scope of the compositions, but Carlson and Davies have always thrived on reductive methods.

The stripped down approach had another advantage. “I really wanted the drums to be present,” Carlson says. “I felt with previous Earth records that other instrumentation took up so much of the sonic space that the drums were kind of pushed to the side.” This tactic helps highlight Davies’ ability to elevate the drum kit beyond its mere metronomic functions and allows it to serve as an expressive, nuanced, and tonally rich component to Earth’s arsenal of sound.

In addition to scaling back on their ranks, Earth altered their previous trajectory by entering into Full Upon Her Burning Lips without a conceptual arc to guide the process, relying instead on their collective subconscious to hone in on the overarching muse as the songs developed. “In the past I’ve usually had a strong framework for an album,” Carlson says. “This one developed over the course of writing and recording. It just felt like ‘Earth’—like just the two players doing their best work at playing, serving the music.”

The absence of a pre-existing narrative guiding the compositions meant that the songs were more open and intuitive, often resulting in more terse musical vignettes like the richly harmonic “Exaltation of Larks” or the dreamily itinerant “Maidens Catafalque”. Yet subconscious impulses gradually created their own subtext for the album. “I wanted this to be a ‘sexy’ record, a record acknowledging the ‘witchy’ and ‘sensual’ aspects in the music… sort of a ‘witch’s garden’ kind of theme, with references to mind altering plants and animals that people have always held superstitious beliefs towards. A conjuror or root doctor’s herbarium of songs, as it were.”
