Eibon - stunning new CD
Last updated: 4 December 2012

AD is extremely pleased to bring to you news of a forthcoming release from EIBON.

New tracks of dark progressive blackened doom - which are sounding awesome. Showcasing EIBON as the finest innovators of extreme doom today.

More details to follow soon - but here is the album cover artwork to start with.

Should be released in the first quarter of 2013 - alongside the brutal new cd from THE NIHILISTIC FRONT


Haiku Funeral new CD
Last updated: 2 November 2012

The 3rd CD from French dark electro act Haiku Funeral is released on 31st October 2012 - entitled "Nightmare Painting" ...

Available now through the "releases" section of this website.

Deep, dark, seductively evil...and infectiously, wickedly groovy, HAIKU FUNERAL generate an atmosphere of black, bleak, ironic paradox. Cold industrial ambience meets darkwave experimentation, liberally seasoned with death/doom and driven by the twin engines of pulsing, trippy, virtuoso bass and hoarse, snarling, savagely crazed voice.
Building on the foundations of sonic terror laid down in "Assassination In The Hashish Cathedral" + "If God Is A Drug" - "Nightmare Painting" retains the same horrifying imagery of death, madness and godless depravity while developing the musical themes to new levels of maturity...and subversiveness. Whilst the listener is drawn in like a moth to a flame, by the appealing rhythms and textures of post-everything avant-garde, the darkest of messages is being whispered direct to their cortex.
It's already too late to wake up: the nightmare is there, under your skin and echoing somewhere in the morbid depths of your soul. Such tender murder, indeed.
a diverse album, a jazz-funk/blackened metal hybrid with ambient experimentation....
(thanks to Mike for the help!)

The Nihilistic Front
Last updated: 21 January 2012

THE NIHILISTIC FRONT are progressing well with tracks for the new album - for a completion in spring 2012.

Titled "Procession To Annihilation" - the cover art is also finished.

This new material will crush any emotion and empathy you may have remaining following their previous 3 albums - TNF are the musical manifestation of all the hatred and contempt you have for society.

TNF have commented - "What the fuck have we created!" - as the realisation dawns of the monster that is being conceived.

an essential vinyl edition
