AN AUTUMN FOR CRIPPLED CHILDREN – ETERNAL cd edition on June 8th, 2017

04/10/2017

AN AUTUMN FOR CRIPPLED CHILDREN – ETERNAL will finally achieve the Digipak cd edition, strictly limited to 600 copies, on June 8th, 2017.

The Masters of Shoegaze Post-Black Metal are back with another opus filled with melancholy and a dense sense of perdition.
Rotten, polluted & abrasive art as AAFCC are able to deliver but at the same time drawing their tense melancholic visions.
All JESU & PELICAN fans looking for some even more struggling feelings can’t miss it.

After many years of activity AAFCC are ready to prove once again their personal approach to this emotional soundscape, being one of the first act to pollute Black Metal with post-rock & negative vibes, shoegaze shadings, before this musical direction became a trend.

Preorders will take place starting from end of April at
WICKERMAN REC. BIGCARTEL

dp_album1_big

“Kingdom Of The Blind” featuring ten stunning tracks of progressive, melodic death metal, being without any doubt the finest album to bear the DE PROFUNDIS name. More challenging, more extreme, more captivating and addictive than anything they have released before, Kingdom Of The Blind will thrill DE PROFUNDIS’ devoted fans and draw many new listeners into their cult of technically breathtaking, atmospheric death metal mastery.

The comes complete with some wonderfully evocative artwork, courtesy of Costin Chioreanu, renowned for his work with Arch Enemy, Darkthrone, At The Gates, Grave and many others.

2014 was an excellent year for DE PROFUNDIS as they drew plaudits from around the globe for their fantastic Frequencies EP. The EP hit the top spot in the Zero Tolerance Magazine readers’ poll, running away with the award for the best self release of the year and bassist Arran McSporran also featured in the top ten bassists of the year – amongst some illustrious company like Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse), David Vincent (Morbid Angel) and Glen Benton (Deicide).

 

 

EBONILLUMINI – ARKTOS in stock on early June

05/19/2015

Ebonillumini are a band of musical traveling nomads who embark upon geographical journeys of discovery. Their mission is to illuminate all things hidden within the ebon shadows of earth, space and time. Musically the band can be described as avant-garde Black Metal with underlying tones of Jazz, Classical, and Acoustic dark Ambient. The cultural musical influences also arise from the lands in which they find themselves. “Aktos”, the second full length album by Ebonillumini, is a continuation of the encyclopedic chapter series. Music meant as a sublimation of the spiritual journey, like a cheeky beggar. It is based on a musical concept developed upon geographical exploration and the unveiling of lost forgotten realities, mysteries and legends.

Let your soul be guided by the female singer charismatic voice, transmitting all the experience of a profound life, overcoming the limit of everyday existence.

DE PROFUNDIS now part of the Wickerman Family

05/4/2015

We’re proud to announce the signing of DE PROFUNDIS, hailing from England.

The first fruits of this new relationship will begin on the 28th September with the release of the fourth DE PROFUNDIS album, entitled “Kingdom Of The Blind”. Featuring ten stunning tracks of progressive, melodic death metal, Kingdom Of The Blind is without any doubt the finest album to bear the DE PROFUNDIS name. More challenging, more extreme, more captivating and addictive than anything they have released before, Kingdom Of The Blind will thrill DE PROFUNDIS’ devoted fans and draw many new listeners into their cult of technically breathtaking, atmospheric death metal mastery. The album will come complete with some wonderfully evocative artwork, courtesy of Costin Chioreanu, renowned for his work with Arch Enemy, Darkthrone, At The Gates, Grave and many others.

“De Profundis is excited to release our most brutal and ambitious work to date with Kingdom Of The Blind,” comments band guitarist Shoi Sen “and we can’t wait to start working with the guys at Wicker Man. We feel we now have the backing of a really enthusiastic and supportive team, the right people to help take De Profundis to the next level.”

2014 was an excellent year for DE PROFUNDIS as they drew plaudits from around the globe for their fantastic Frequencies EP. The EP hit the top spot in the ZERO TOLERANCE MAGAZINE readers’ poll, running away with the award for the best self release of the year and bassist Arran McSporran also featured in the top ten bassists of the year – amongst some illustrious company like Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse), David Vincent (Morbid Angel) and Glen Benton (Deicide). However, even these achievements look set to be eclipsed in 2015, when the monumental Kingdom Of The Blind is unleashed.

De Profundis bio:

Formed in 2005, London’s De Profundis started life playing a haunting blend of Doom and Death metal. Self-releasing their full-length debut “Beyond Redemption” to critical acclaim in 2007, the band wasted no time in making themselves known as a live experience to be reckoned with. Gigging extensively in their native United Kingdom, they went on to stun audiences at Bloodstock Open Air, March Metal Day in Greece, and by 2009 were supporting Iron Maiden in India, resulting in a 2 album deal with Sony India. Despite these explosive beginnings, various line-up changes combined with the band’s disillusionment with the stagnant Doom scene saw them distance themselves from it in favour of a greater challenge.
2010 saw the release of “A Bleak Reflection”, which was picked up by Kolony Records (Ita). Colossal in scope and far more progressive in nature, the album presented a new sound for the band, showcasing superior musicianship and songwriting while retaining the sombre, melodic atmosphere that defined their debut. Countless shows followed, including the UK’s Infernal Damnation, Portugal’s Ilha do Ermal Festival, a European tour supporting Ragnarok (Nor) and a triumphant return to India for a headlining tour, which included playing as co-headliners with Lacuna Coil to 30,000 people at the Kingfisher Octoberfest in 2010. A 14 date Eastern European tour supporting Rotting Christ followed in 2011.
The boundaries pushed on ‘A Bleak Reflection’ were well and truly broken altogether in 2012 by the band’s third opus “The Emptiness Within”, once again released by Kolony Records. After years of honing their art, the sound of De Profundis was streamlined into concise, technical cacophonies that fused ferocious Blackened Death metal with ethereal progressive overtones. The band would film their first promo video for the song “Twisted Landscapes” before storming Germany’s Rockharz festival, supporting Endstille (Ger) on their UK tour, spending 2 weeks supporting Marduk and Immolation throughout Europe and embarking on a UK headlining tour of their own.
In March 2014, De Profundis began recording their next 2 releases: a 4 track EP entitled “Frequencies” to be released in June/July 2014, followed by the bands fourth yet untitled full length album in the near future. With these new releases, De Profundis continue to evolve, the new material being the most scathingly aggressive yet intricate and refined music they have ever written. 

In July 2014 De Profundis will embark on UK tour supporting India’s Demonic Resurrection and 6 years after their first Bloodstock appearance in 2008, De Profundis descend upon the Sophie Lancaster stage determined to prove that they are a force within UK’s Extreme Metal scene that cannot and will not be ignored.

Amazing feedbacks for the An Autumn for Crippled Children new album “The Long Goodbye”

Amazing feedbacks for the An Autumn for Crippled Children new album “The Long Goodbye”

Just to mentioned the latest:

infernalmasquerade.com 95/100 “, An Autumn for Crippled Children easily standout with soul crushing releases like this one, so if you are into older Alcest, Lantlos, Deafheaven, and Ghost Bath, look no further and pick up a copy of this one.”

heavyblogisheavy.com 4.5/5 “An Autumn For Crippled Children are potentially the most important creative act currently active on black metal’s cutting edge”

metalstorm.net 8.7/10 “firmly believe An Autumn For Crippled Children are one of the bands at the apex of the foggy, icy covered black-gazed mountain top. With The Long Goodbye, they have elevated their game to the highest level by dumbing down their approach. A simple but effective maneuver, when euphoric atmosphere and blinding aura are smoothly ingested without much ado, music of this kind has fulfilled its purpose.

Deadrhetoric 8.5/10 “If you’ve yet to check out AAFCC, do yourself a favor and pick up this release – it’s one of their best.”

ghostcultmag.com 8/10 “The Long Goodbye will only serve to enhance that standing, with the exploration of death rock, alongside their usual despondency and delicate post-Black metal, adding a welcome vibrancy and impetus.”

Unholynoise “An engaging, haunting, raw and beautiful listen,’ The Long Goodbye’ offers a concoction that few other experimental bands have achieved, and will undoubtedly provide yield greater treasures with further listening and the passage of time.”

pitchfork.com “AAFCC aren’t clones—they mutate Lifelover’s ethos into a gnarlier, and at the same time beautiful, sound.”

newnoisemagazine “this is a truly great album, however you wish to label it.”

toiletovhell.com “These guys are dialing in their knack for enveloping the listener on this, another great release from a consistently great band.”

treeworthy.org  “A type of band that’s an absolute acquired taste, without themselves an undesirable taste. Which, is hard with a death metal genre.”

musicandriotsmagazine.com  “The strength of these dynamics, and the quality of the melodies on offer, are a valuable contribution to a still-exciting scene and, when applied with such skill and intricacy, make for one of the best offerings from the band yet.”

angrymetalguy.com “There is no doubt in my mind that The Long Goodbye is AAfCC‘s best work, achieved through minor improvements across their last three releases.”

impattosonoro.it “The future is An Autumn for Crippled Children”

metalitalia.com “Who started to follow them won’t stop today”

metallus.it “AAFCC are back with a sensual and introspective platter”

metal maniac “I invite you all to have an open mind and check “The Long Goodbye”. It proves that experimental music doesn’t have to be simply “weird”, but rather well-composed, recorded and to be passionate”

we remind you that album is available on our bigcartel eshop:
