Azure – “Moonlight Legend”

First time on vinyl! The 1998 masterpiece of Swedish melodic black metal has been remastered for vinyl — recommended for fans of DAWN, DISSECTION, VINTERLAND, SACRAMENTUM

Just over 20 years later, the concept album finally sees the vinyl treatment it deserves for the first time ever!

Azure’s Moonlight Legend is a raw and frantic black metal experience, and it masterfully maintains the dreamy and journey-like state paired with pummeling drums and melodic guitars we’ve all become so familiar with in the melodic black metal genre.

The lyrics, arguably one of the most important parts of Moonlight Legend written by guitarist/vocalist Robban Kanto, expand it from an album to a world of its own. The story fleshed out in chapter-like songs, follows the prophecy of Belhelth, “The Eroican”, the nocturnal goddess Selene, and the gods and spirits that watch all tales of those prophesized to become rulers of the universe.

Line-up from 1998:
Robert “Amorth Bredlave” Kanto – Guitars, Bass, Vocals, Writing, Lyrics

With guests,
Matte Holmgren – Drums, Keyboards, Vocals
André Nylund – Guitars (lead)
Stefan Rådlund -Guitars (lead)

Cover art and logo by Mattias Persson
Engineered and mixed by Janne Andersson & Olle Rönnlund.

Ushangvagush – Mntu

Native American black metal with a searing punk edge, Ushangvagush unveils their blistering debut album. Without a doubt one of the best in its style in recent years. Recommended for fans of YELLOW EYES and NADRA.

The debut album from first nations band USHANGVAGUSH is a searing and passionate expression of emotion. Improving upon the foundation left by the INANITION demo, MNTU is an impressive and self-realized album about struggle and strength.

We are previewing the second track from the album, “Siguapatign” — titled in the native language of Miq’maw. The track is a flurry of raw and melodic black metal guitars and destructive drumming by sole member D.

Vinyl, tape, and digital orders are open, the album is released this August by Vigor Deconstruct.
