Der findes stadig enkle, men sjældne bands derude, der har en unik evne til at forbinde makaber og mystificerende rock med et mere poporienteret touch a la tidlig Bowie eller The Cure. Denne egenskab finder man hos det finske postpunk-band, Grave Pleasures, der i deres mestren af netop denne dualitet er lige velegnet til at spille stadionkoncerter som at optræde i et Lynchiansk mareridt. Den britiskfødte forsanger, Mat McNerney, siger selv om musikken:

“I try to write songs about the unexplored human darkness, of the nightmares but also the joys inherent in it. It’s about accursed attractions and making love to your nihilism. Misery loves catharsis.”

Grave Pleasures rejste sig af asken fra bandets korte levetid som undergrundssensationen, Beastmilk, og udgav det ambitiøse debutalbum, Dreamcrash, i 2015 til flotte anmeldelser. Albummet rakte ud til et bredere publikum og bandet fik efterfølgende bragt deres atomare punk til højprofilerede festivaler som Hellfest, Reverence Festival og Rockavaria. Sidste år smed bandet deres andet fuldlængde album, Motherblood, på gaden, der gav bandet yderligere flot omtale og er blandt andet blevet beskrevet som “en våd postpunk-drøm”.

Grave Pleasures er et band, der tager publikum med på usikkert farvand, hvor skibet er ladet med rå, catchy og sexede rockhymner, du sent vil glemme!

All in all, this band is the hottest thing in the current underground Heavy Metal scene!

SLÆGT (dk) – Ván Records
https://www.facebook.com/Slaegt
http://slaegt.bandcamp.com/releases
Slægt started as a solo-project of Oskar J. Frederiksen (lead vocals & guitars) in 2011. The beginning saw Slægt delve in raw and primitive black metal aggression. Over time the band has developed into having a full line-up now including Anders M. Jørgensen (guitars), Olle Bergholz (bass guitar) and Adam ”CCsquele” Nielsen (drums). Although the current version of Slægt seems to have progressed a lot since its early days, the essence still remains untouched. Stylistically influences are now drawn from a broader spectrum from such diverse movements as the NWOBHM and the black metal scene(s) of the 80’s and 90’s. Slægt delivers what can be best described as an epic blackened heavy metal with lots of catchy moments, played fast but without the usual blastbeats, exploring sound patterns that seem familiar, but always making them sound fresh. The darkness within the riffs and lyrics flows with dark blasts of energy.
The band has, in the current constellation, released the EP “Beautiful and Damned” (Iron Bonehead Productions), which came out in December 2015, and the full-length “Domus Mysterium” (Ván Records), which came out in May 2017. Both releases have received great reviews, at home and abroad, and with a victorious concert at the Copenhell festival, in Copenhagen, June 2017, the band has cemented its place as one of the most exciting and promising bands on the Danish metal scene.

Step into the church of the night with the beautiful and damned sons of Copenhagen.

ENCYRCLE (dk) – Unspeakable Axe Records / Dark Decent Records
https://www.facebook.com/encyrcle
https://unspeakableaxerecords.bandcamp.com/album/encyrcle
The sonic vessel ENCYRCLE appeared on the map in 2015 with a widely praised eponymous debut album, by many referred to as ‘nocturnal speed metal’. While speed is characteristic of a vessel, it is not essence. ENCYRCLE is the story of the journey into the Other, nightly Sister and Source, where all things are lost and gained in an otherworldly ecstasy. Their stage becomes a meeting ground for dissolution and dawn, violence and melancholy. Thus, in the shamanic vein of every potent rock ‘n’ roll artist of past, ENCYRCLE play the night’s heavy metal. Rock solid in aim, yet serpent-like in method, the troupe will return to land once more in the fall of 2016 with a three-track EP, foreshadowing their most daring adventure yet, their follow-up album, come 2017
