Jowisz - Trench Rat's Banquet, (2017.)


(Scroll down for English)
Jowisz, martial dark ambient iz Poljske obradovao nas je svojim prvim full-lenght albumom pod nazivom, Trench Rat's Banquet. Album je u limitiranoj verziji od dve stotine primeraka izdala Spatha Production. Čovek koji je idejni tvorac ovog posve interesantnog projekta zove se Mr. Wolf i drago mi je što postoji i što stvara istoriju svojim kompozicijama. Fizičko izdanje albuma odrađeno je u maniru pravog martial albuma. Sadrži dvanaest pesama koje su posvećene krvavim rovovima Prvog svetskog rata. Rat je upravo počeo i mi mu se priključujemo!


Album otvara numera Cold Spirit of Russia. Čujemo horsko pevanje i prelazimo na hladnu rusku zimu. osećamo to na svojim telima. Strahote rata se bliže. Sada već slušamo drugu numeru Parabellum. Tonovi izazivaju strah, koji postaje sve veći.. Čujemo pucanj i kraj! Ni primetili nismo da već slušamo treću numeru Polen KampfKult. Jedna sasvim i u svakom pogledu herojska pesma (lični utisak). Oduvala nas je na sve načine. Četvrta numera Le Grotesques de Verdun. Upravo slušamo jednu od boljih pesama na albumu. Umetnik na jedan savršen način oslikava tu veliku i traginu bitku Velikog rata. Tonovi nas vode da i mi napredujemo preko ničije zemlje i jurišamo na neprijateljske rovove. Nakon uspešne bitke usledio je horor u petoj numeri The Crawling Horror (In Tribute for Mark I). Suočavamo se prvi put sa svojim drugovima u rovovima sa zvukom koja ta čelična čudovišta prave. Svet se menja, način ratovanja se menja, mi smo se promenili. Strah nestaje dok prelazimo na šestu numeru  Trench Rat's Banquet. Kiša, sve je mokro oko nas. Zvona zvone u daljini. Tu su jedini stanovnici rovova, kojima ne smeta svet koji nestaje. Oni u ironiji današnjeg vremena prave svoj banket i uživaju. Numera sedam Soldier of Sun i numera osam The Yellow Cloud Ritual. Sada su tonovi malo drugačiji, tek toliko da nam daju do znanja da rat još uvek traje. Dolazimo do devete pesme The Grey Faces of Ypres and Somme. Došli smo do konačnog obračuna. U rovu smo sa puškom u ruci i čekamo znak. Zvuk pištaljke i pokolj je počeo. Meci lete iznad naših glava, dok kose naše drugove. Ničija zemlja je postala grobnica. Jedni preko drugih leže, ranjenih svuda okola. Jedno čitavo selo je zbrisano. Pobeda je ničija. Bližimo se kraju albuma i došli smo do desete pesme After the Battle II. Nije ostalo ništa. Po bojištu lete ptice i traže plen, dok sahranjujemo svoje pale drugove. Jedanaesta numera The Brotherhood of Arditi, kao omaž jednoj specijalnoj jedinici iz vremena Velikog rata. Za kraj nam ostaje numera The Last Breath Before the Storm (Remix). Savršena numera za kraj jednog savršenog albuma.
Utisci? Pre svega drago mi je da se martial žanr neguje među slovenskim narodima i to na ovakav način na koji radi i muziku stvara Jowisz. Album svakako vredan pažnje i uživanja. Skrojen za sve poštovaoce Velikog rata i čuvanja tradicije palih naroda koji su branili svoje zemlje. Topla preporuka da što pre nabavite primerak svog albuma, jer verujte mi nećete se pokajati. Oni koji će umreti vas pozdravljaju!

Jowisz - Trench Rat's Banquet, (2017.)


Jowisz, martial dark ambient from Poland, delighted us with his first full-length album titled, Trench Rat's Banquet. The album is a limited edition of two hundred copies issued Spatha Production. The man who is the creator of this quite interesting project called Mr. Wolf, i'm glad there is a creating history in his compositions. The physical edition of the album was done in the manner of a true martial albums. It contains twelve songs that are dedicated to the bloody trenches of the First World War. The war has just begun and we are joining him! 


The album opens with the track Cold Spirit of Russia. We hear choral singing and moving on to the cold Russian winter. We feel it in our bodies. The horrors of war closer. Now we listen to another track Parabellum. Tones cause fear, which becomes more and more .. We hear a gunshot and the end! Neither noticed that we did not already listening to the third track Polen KampfKult. Another completely and in every heroic poem (personal impression). Blew us in all ways. The fourth track Le Grotesques de Verdun. Just listen to one of the better songs on the album. Artist in a perfect way reflects the great and the tragic battle of the Great War. Tones us water that we move through the no man's land and the assault on the enemy trenches. After a successful battle was followed by horror in the fifth track The Crawling Horror (In Tribute for Mark I). We are facing for the first time with his comrades in the trenches with the sound of the steel monsters right. The world is changing, the way warfare is changing, we are changed. The fear of being wiped out as we move to the sixth track Trench Rat's Banquet. Rain, wet all around us. The bells ringing in the distance. Here are the only inhabitants of the trenches, who do not mind a world that disappears. Those ironies of our time make their banquet and party. Tracks seven Soldier of Sun and eight tracks The Yellow Cloud Ritual. Now tones are a little different, just to let us know that the war is still going on. We come to the ninth song The Gray Faces of Ypres and Somme. We came to the final showdown. In the trenches we have with a gun in our hand and wait for a sign. The sound of a whistle and the slaughter began. The bullets flying over our heads, and our other pieces. No Man's Land has become a tomb. Over each other lying wounded everywhere. An entire village was wiped out. Victory is nobody. Nearing the end of the album, and we came to the tenth song After the Battle II. There's nothing left. After flying birds battlefield and looking for prey, and bury their fallen comrades. The eleventh track Brotherhood of Arditi, as a tribute to a special unit from the time of the Great War. We shall end the track The Last Breath Before The Storm (Remix). Perfect track for the end of a perfect album.
Tips? First of all, I'm glad to be genre of martial nourish the Slovenian nation and in such a way that love and music creates Jowisz. The album is certainly worthy of attention and enjoyment. Tailored for all admirers of the Great War and preserving the tradition of the fallen peoples who were defending their country. Warmly recommended that you obtain a copy of his album, because believe me you will not regret. Those who die, salute you!

Nytt Land - Fimbulvinter, (2017.)


(Scroll down for English)
Nytt Land iz daleke Rusije obradovao nas je svojim novim albumom, Fimbulvinter, pod pokroviteljstvom Cold Spring-a. Natalija i Anatolij nastavljaju da oduševljavaju sada već veliku publiku širom sveta tonovima koje stvaraju. Već smo čitaoce iz Srbije upoznali sa njihovim prošlim albumima, a sada ovom recenzijom nastavljamo uspešnu saradnju. Album je stigao do mene. U pitanju je digipack izdanje, skrojeno na pravi nordijski način. Muziku stvaraju iz starih Edda i pevaju na staronordijskom jeziku. Uz to dobijate i tekstove pesama, koje upotpunjavaju puni doživljaj, koji oni svojom muzikom stvaraju. Album ima ukupno dvanaest pesama i konceptualno je podeljen na dva dela. Prvi deo posvećen je stvaranju sveta i ljudi, drugi strašnoj zimi i kraju svih živih bića.


Album otvara , numera koja nas polako vodi u svet Nytt Land-a. Čujemo vokal u daljini. Uključuje se Natalijin vokal i sve dobija smisao. Naše putovanje je upravo počelo. Uživamo i prelazimo na drugu numeru
Vetar se čuje. Uključuju se gajde. Zvuk je božanstven. Nordijski bogovi su oko nas. To je ono posebno što cenim kod njih, a to su ručno pravljeni muzički instrumenti. Malo je bendova koji toliko polažu na tradiciju i očuvanje svoje i svetske kulturne baštine. Na tome im svaka čast. Muzika nas i dalje vodi i igramo sa starim Bogovima. Svakako jedna od boljih pesama na albumu. Treća numera
Ár var alda (Helgakviða Hundingsbana I, 1-4) , zima je blizu. Zvuk ptica je daleko! Putovanje se nastavlja, dok mi sve više uživamo. Četvrta numera je usledila, a da to nismo ni primetili,
Čujemo sada grleno pevanje i novi momenti na albumu kreću. Pesma je nežna i opuštenija. Pesma kojom pokazuju da su majstori svog zanata. Usledile su peta Gjallarhorn (Völuspá, 46-48) i šesta pesma . Natalijin vokal, kao da pevaju stari Bogovi. Uživanje je sve veće, a naše putovanje još lepše. Došli smo negde do polovine albuma i zima je sve bliža. Hladan pokrivač se nadvija nad nama. Temperatura je u padu. Ubedljivo najbolje pesme na celom albumu. Došli smo do sedme numere . Zvuci tradicionalnih instrumenata su oko nas i ritual se nastavlja. Vokali razbijaju. Ritualni ples je započet. Plešemo u nedogled. Osma numera . Čujemo zvuk mora, zvuk koji nas navodi da krenemo u nepoznato. Bez pogovora pristajemo na to, jer nam je muzika vodič. Bližimo se polako kraju albuma i već slušamo devetu numeru . Instrumental na početku, da bi se u drugom delu uključio maestralni Natalijin vokal. Mračni ritual uveliko traje! Došli smo do desete numere , ujedno i najduže numere na čitavom albumu. Gost na numeri je Eisenslav iz benda Kroda. Zvuk roga daje posebnu simboliku. Pesma počinje nežnim vokalom. Tonovi su savršeni. Vrhunac albuma je upravo ova pesma! Kada budete preslušavali album shvatićete o čemu pričam. Uradili su nešto fantastično spojivši spojivo sa nespojivim, što i jeste odlika velikih muzičara. Jednostavno, numera za pamćenje! Ostale su nam za kraj poslednje dve bonus numere The Last War i Winter Day. Kako su počeli album, tako su ga završili na sebi svojstven način. Dosledno do samog kraja i sve napravljeno za uživanje!
Utisci? Pratim od samih početaka njihov rad i dobro je da postoje. Ruski Varjazi su ovim albumom daleko napredovali. Svojom muzikom nas puno obradovali. Ovaj album je priča koju oni pričaju. Priča o postanju, dobru i zlu, samom kraju i večitoj borbi. Ovaj album je za sada njihovo remek delo!

Nytt Land - Fimbulvinter, (2017.)


Nytt Land from distant Russia surprise us with their new album, Fimbulvinter, sponsored by Cold Spring's. Natalya and Anatoly continue to delight now a large audience worldwide that produce tones. We have already met readers from Serbia with their previous albums, and now this review will continue successful cooperation. The album reached me. It is a digipack edition, tailored to the real Nordic way. The music created from old Edda and singing in Old Norse. That comes with the lyrics, which complement the full experience that they create their music. The album has twelve songs and conceptually divided into two parts. The first part is dedicated to the creation of the world and people, second terrible winter and the end of all living beings.



The album opens Daud Balder (Voluspa 31-35) track that slowly leads us into the world Nytt Land-a. We hear the vocals in the distance. Turns on Natalie's vocals and everything makes sense. Our journey has just begun. We enjoy and move on to another track Gullinkambi (Voluspa, 42-44). Wind we heard. Including the bagpipes. The sound is divine. The Norse gods are all around us. This is what particularly you appreciate about them, and they are handmade musical instruments. There are few bands that take so much tradition and preserve their cultural and world heritage. For that they each honor. We continue to play with the old gods. Definitely one of the better songs on the album. The third track Ar var alda (Helgakviða Hundingsbana I, 1-4), winter is near. The sound of birds is far! The journey continues, while we enjoy ourselves more. The fourth track is followed, but we did not even notice, Fimbulvinter. Now we hear the throat singing and new moments on the album range. The song is gentle and relaxed. The song, which show that the masters of their craft. This was followed by the fifth Gjallarhorni (Voluspa, 46-48) and the sixth song Fenris kinder (Voluspa, 40-41). Natalie's vocals, as well as to sing the old gods. Enjoyment is growing, but our trip even better. We're here until about half of the album, and winter is getting closer. Cold quilt hangs over us. The temperature is falling. By far the best song on the whole album. We came to the seventh track Hittusk Aesir (Voluspa, 7-10). The sounds of traditional instruments around us and the ritual continues. Vocals break. The ritual dance is initiated. Dance forever. The eighth track Sal Ser hon standa (Voluspa, 64-66). We hear the sound of the sea, the sound that makes us go into the unknown. No question agree to this, because our music guide. Nearing the end of the album, and slowly but listen ninth track Surtr ferr Sunnan (Voluspa, 52.57). Instrumental in the beginning, to be included in the second part of Natalie's masterful vocals. The dark ritual is well under way! We have reached the tenth track Bróðurbana sínum (Havamal, 89-91) feat. Eisenslav "KRODA", also the longest track on the entire album. Guest on the track is Eisenslav from the band Kroda. The sound of the horn has a special symbolism. The song begins with a gentle vocals. The tones are perfect. The highlight of the album is this song! When you listened to the album you'll understand what I'm saying. They did something fantastic to combine the incompatible with compatible, which is the characteristic of great musicians. Simply tracks to remember! All we got to the end of the last two bonus tracks The Last War and Winter Day. As the album began, so it ended up in his own way. Consistent to the end and made all to enjoy!
Tips? I follow the band from the very beginning of their work. Russian Varangians with this album are far advanced. With its music, a lot of us cheered. This album is a story that they are talking about. The story of genesis, good and evil, and the end eternal struggle. This album is their masterpiece for now!

Recenzija: Keltika Hispanna - Nekue Uertaunei, (2016.)

Keltika Hispanna - Nekue Uertaunei, (2016.)


(Scroll down for English)
Keltika Hispanna je dark neo-folk bend, koji je nastao u drevnim planinama Gvadarame (Španija). Koriste tradicionalne instrumente u svojoj muzici. Pevaju svoje pesme na jeziku Kastilje, kao i na starom keltoiberijskom jeziku.  Bend čine Daniel Salmador, Luis M. Folgado, Iñaki Simón i Andrés Barriga i postoje od 2011. godine. Ponosno čuvaju tradiciju KeltIberije i prenose je sledećim generacijama. Posle nekoliko izdanja obradovali su nas novim albumom Nekue Uertaunei. Album je izdala muzička kuća Soliferro Grabaciones Iberas. U pitanju je digi eco-pack, urađen na jedan poseban način. Na cover-u je prikazana šuma, koja je meni kada sam prvi put držao album u rukama simbolisala slobodu, kulturu i tradiciju. Savršeno za početak. Album ima jedanaest pesama i mi krećemo na putovanje drevnom KeltIberijom.


Otvara ga numera Abuloslouskum. Čujemo glas, koji nas vodi. Prelazimo na muziku i sada čujemo zvuk tradicionalnih instrumenata. Naše uživanje je počelo. Prelazimo na drugu pesmu Colodra Labrada. Žičani instrumenti su u pozadini. Daju nam poziv za igru. Uključuju se praporci (mislim da sam pogodio instrument). Tu je i duvački instrument, koji daje potpuno novu dimenziju ovoj numeri. Ni primetili nismo da već slušamo treću pesmu Devs Candamivs. Počela je jedna od boljih pesama na albumu. Uz zvuke roga, doboša ritual je počeo. To nam kazuje i vokal koji čujemo. Sve je pažljivo planirano i servirano u pravom trenutku. Pesma koja vas podiže na noge i nosi u visine. Blaženstvo! Četvrta numera Zurron al Hombro. Akustična gitara nas uvodi u pesmu. Vokal nam se pridružuje. Jedna skladna melodija u kojoj se posebno izdvajaju zvuk flaute, koja će vas opiti. Potpuno obuzeti i pod utiskom prelazimo na petu pesmu Nekue Uertaunei. Zvuk praporaka i ritualni glas nas pozivaju da se pridružimo njihovom plesu. Radosno pristajemo na to bez pogovora. Došli smo do šeste pesme Ya no lo ven Tus Ojos, ujedno i najduže pesme na čitavom albumu. Mirni tonovi akustične gitare uz vokale nas uvode u pesmu. Melodija je ono što nam znači, melodija je život koji oni stvaraju. Umetnici i čuvari tradicije, to je Keltika Hispanna. Uverićete se i vi dok budete slušali ovu najbolju pesmu na albumu (lični utisak). Sedma numera Bajo la Encina (with Ceccila de Caelia). Odlična numera i gostujući božanstveni ženski vokal. Milina! Sa istim osećajem prelazimo na osmu pesmu La Curia. Jedan kratak ritual kojim nastavljamo naše predivno putovanje do devete pesme Cabalgando con Bravura (with Gustavo de Hiedra). Koji god da instrument koriste na početku pesme (ja uopšte nemam pojma) božanstveno zvuči. Pesma će vas potpuno razbiti u pozitivnom smislu te reči. Čućete glas samih Bogova i znate šta, uživaćete u svakom trenu, jer ovo je jedna fantastična pesma. Došli smo do pretposlednje pesme Tin lunstir Tauatoteka. Dobar uvod u poslednju numeru El Cerro. Zvuci akustične gitare i frule donose nam smiraj. Jasan i čist vokal nas vodi po predelima KeltIberije. Vidimo antičku Numansiju, divimo se arhitekturi, dišemo punim plućima, jer Iberija je slobodna (lični utisak). 
Utisci? Ako neko treba da se ponosi onim što ima onda je to upravo Iberijsko poluostrvo. Keltika Hispanna zajedno sa ostalim bendovima (Àrnica, Drusuna- Ritual Pagan Folk,  Cuélebre,  Urze de Lume i The Wyrm  ) ponosno čuvaju ono što drugi narodi zaboravljaju. A, to je tradicija, koju kroz svoju muziku i koncerte prenose na sledeće generacije. Upravo to su i učinili svojim novim albumom. Svaka im čast na tome, imaju duboko poštovanje sa moje strane. Već dugo pratim muzičku scenu sa tog poluostrva i znam o čemu pričam. Ovi momci će se nadaleko čuti sa svojom muzikom i u to budite uvereni.

Keltika Hispanna - Nekue Uertaunei, (2016.)

Keltika Hispanna is the dark neo-folk band, which originated in ancient mountains Guadarrama (Spain). They use traditional instruments in their music. Band sing their songs in the language of Castile, as well as on the old Celtiberian language. The band consists of Daniel Salmador, Luis M. Folgado, Iñaki Simón and Andrés Barriga and there since 2011. Proudly preserve the Celtiberian tradition and pass it on to the next generations. After several editions surprised us with a new album Nekue Uertaunei. The album was issued a record label Soliferro Grabaciones Iberas. It is digi eco-pack, made in a special way. On the cover is shown in the forest, which to me when I first held the album in the hands symbolized freedom, culture and tradition. Perfect for start. The album has eleven songs and we go on a journey to ancient Celtiberia.


Opens the track Abuloslouskum. We hear the voice that leads us. Moving on to music and now we hear the sound of traditional instruments. Our enjoyment started. Moving on to another song Colodra Labrada. String instruments in the background. They give us a call to play. Turns on feathering (I think I hit the instrument). There is a brass instrument, which gives a whole new dimension to the track. We did not even notice that you already listen to the third song Devs Candamivs. She started one of the better songs on the album. With the sounds of horns, drums and ritual began. Everything has been carefully planned and served at the right time. A song that takes you up on your feet and take to the heights. Bliss! The fourth track Zurron al Hombre. Acoustic guitar introduces us to the song. Vocals joins us. A harmonious melody in which stand out the sound of the flute, which will make you drunk. Completely overwhelmed and under the influence of moving on to a fifth song Nekue Uertaunei. Sound and ritual voice invite us to join their dance. Joyfully agree to it without question. We came to the sixth song Ya no lo ven Tus Ojos, also the longest song on the whole album. Quiet tones of acoustic guitar with vocals lead us into the song. The melody is what we mean, life is a melody they create. Artists and guardians of tradition, it is Keltika Hispanna. You will see  when you listen to the best song on this album (personal impression). Seven tracks Bajo la Encina (with Ceccila de Caelia). Excellent song and visiting celestial female vocals. Bliss! With the same sense of moving on to the eighth song La Curia. One brief ritual that we continue our journey to the beautiful ninth song Cabalgando con Bravura (with Gustavo de Hiedra). Whatever the instrument used at the beginning of the song (I do not have a clue) heavenly sounds. The song will completely break up in the positive sense of the word. You will hear the voice of the gods themselves, and you know what, you'll enjoy every moment because this is a fantastic song. We came to the penultimate song Tin lunstir Tauatoteka. A good introduction to the last track El Cerro. The sounds of the acoustic guitar and flute, bringing us calm. Clear and clean vocals guides us through landscapes Celtiberia. We see ancient Numancia, admire the architecture, breathing lungs because Iberia is free (personal impression).
Tips? If anyone should be proud of what you have, then this is exactly the Iberian Peninsula. Keltika Hispanna together with other bands (Àrnica, Drusuna- Ritual Pagan Folk,  Cuélebre,  Urze de Lume i The Wyrm) proudly preserve what other people forget. It is a tradition that in their music and concerts transmitted to the next generation. That's exactly what they did with their new album. Each honor them for that, have a deep respect from my side. For a long time I follow the music scene with the peninsula and I know what I'm saying. These guys will hear the well with his music and in to be sure.

Recenzija: Tamerlan - Luciferian, (2016.)

Tamerlan - Luciferian, (2016.)


(Scroll down for English)
Tamerlan, projekat Timura Iskandarova postoji već više od jedne decenije. Ovaj vrsni multiinstrumentalista obeležio je na sebi jedan svojstven način našu, a i međunarodnu muzičku scenu. Krajem prošle godine (15.12.2016.), obradovao nas je svojim četvrtim studijskim albumom Luciferian. Izdavanje albuma podržala je sada već čuvena muzička izdavačka kuća iz Rusije Casus Belli Musica. Gde je Timur stao svojim prethodnim albumom Ain (recenziju pročitajte ovde), sada je nastavio i produbio smisao same muzike. Pored muzike i tekstova koje je uradio i na ovom albumu ima gostujuće muzičare Bornyhake na bubnjevima (Patricide), Will Connor na perkusijama (Burn In Peace, Until Dreams Are All That's Left, The Beholder i Faces In The Fog), Aleksandar Maksimović na bubnjevima (Come And See i Lucifer's Soon), Cecilia Bjargo kao back vokal (Come And See) i Khargash na violini (Lucifer's Soon). Album je produciran i miksovan od strane Mihajla Obrenova u njegovom DURU studiju. Digipack izdanje izgleda fantastično. Uz njega dobijate i booklet na šest strana. Cover fotografija je ono što ostavlja bez daha u umetničkom smislu te reči. Predstavlja rađanje nečeg novog, dostižno nedostižno. Svakako je Bora Helvacioglu uradio maestralan posao. Album ima osam pesama i mi krećemo u detaljnu analizu. 


Otvara ga pesma Patricide. Prepoznatljiv zvuk gitare širi se po sobi. Vokal izaziva divljenje. Mrak, gotika. Izbor je samo naš i ničiji više. Tonovi nas vode, dok plamen sveće dogoreva i svetlost je sve tanja. Prelazimo na drugu numeru Burn In Peace. Čujemo perkusije, vokal se ubacuje. Gitara se javlja preko svojih žica da nije zaboravljena. Jedna "nežna" horor melodija, koja me u potpunosti oduševljava i podiže dok ne zaplešem u potpunom mraku. Tonovi su i dalje fascinatni i u mraku nam pokazuju svetlo. Ritual je počeo. Nastavljamo sa trećom pesmom Until Dreams Are All That's Left. Perkusije, gitara i dalje su savršen spoj da bi nastavili svoje uživanje. Savršen zvuk gitare čujemo (3,25 minut). Tonovi su malo brži, dok je vokal smireniji i pokazuje nam put ka beskraju. Četvrta numera Come And See. Jedna od boljih pesama na albumu definitivno. Na back vokalima gostuje Cecilia Bjargo. Timurov glas nas poziva da dođemo, da se uverimo, da vidimo sopstvenim očima. Sada već čujemo brže tonove i spremni smo za polazak. Krećemo bez pogovora. Prešli smo na petu pesmu The Beholder. Čujemo pucanje žice koje nam donosi tonove. Vokal se uključuje i počinje bombardovanje i nastavak rituala. Ne bunimo se uopšte, jer to ni ne želimo. Perkusije su tu i sve je idilično sada. Preko šeste instrumental pesme Apotheosis, lagano smo prešli na sedmu pesmu Lucifer's Son. Ubedljivo najbolja i najlepša pesma na celom albumu (lični utisak). Nežni tonovi gitare otvaraju pesmu. Čuje se i violina, što daje poseban osećaj samoj numeri. Vokal neopisivo dobar. Totalno će vas rasturiti, ali u onom pozitivnom smislu te reči. Ritual je ispunjen u potpunosti i tu nema dileme! Poslednja numera Faces In The Fog. Savršeno za kraj. Za sve fanove Sol Invictus-a, Arcana-e i Dead Can Dance-a. 
Utisci? Korak napred je svakako napravljen. Timur je dao zadatak našoj sceni da mu pronađe pandan, ali iskreno mislim da je to nemoguće. Ovim albumom pokazao je da je najbolji multiinstrumentalista na našoj sceni. Umetnik! Album je već sada dobio prvo mesto za najbolji album godine. U to budite uvereni!

Tamerlan - Luciferian, (2016.)


Tamerlan, Timur Iskandarov project has existed for more than a decade. This marked the skilled multi-instrumentalist carries a unique way our, and international music scene. At the end of last year (12.15.2016.), delighted us with his fourth studio album Luciferian. Supported the release of the album now famous music publishing house in Russia Casus Belli Musica. Where is Timur stopped their previous album Ain (read the review here), now continued and deepened the sense of the music itself. Besides music and texts that he did on this album has visiting musicians Bornyhake on drums (Craigslist), Will Connor on percussion (Burn In Peace, Until Dreams Are All That's Left, The Beholder and Faces In The Fog), Aleksandar Maksimović on drums (Come and See, and Lucifer's Soon), Cecilia Bjargo on backing vocals (Come and See) and Khargash on violin (Lucifer's Soon). The album was produced and mixed by Mihajlo Obrenov in DURU studio. Digipack edition looks fantastic. In addition it comes with a six-page booklet. Cover photo is what leaves you breathless in the artistic sense. It represents the birth of something new, attainable unattainable. It is certainly Bora Helvacioglu done a masterly job. The album has eight songs and we move into a detailed analysis.




It opened with the song Patricide. The distinctive guitar sound spreads around the room. Vocal admiration. Dark, gothic. The choice is ours and no one else's. Tones us water until the flame burns out and the light is thinner. Moving on to another track Burn In Peace. We hear percussion, vocals are herre. Guitar occurs through their wire that is not forgotten. A "soft" horror melody, which inspires me completely and raises until you dance in complete darkness. The tones are still in the dark and fascinating show us the light. The ritual began. We continue with the third song Until Dreams Are All That's Left. Percussion, guitar and still are the perfect combination to continue our enjoyment. The perfect guitar sound we hear (3.25 minutes). The tones are a bit faster, while the vocals calmer and shows us the way to infinity. The fourth track Come And See. One of the better songs on the album, definitely. On the back vocals hosted Cecilia Bjargo. Timuro voice invites us to come, to be sure, to see with their own eyes. Now we hear the tones quickly and we are ready to go. We start without question. We're in the fifth song of The Beholder. We hear a broken wire that brings tones. Vocal turns on and starts pounding and continue the ritual. I do object in general, because it does not want. Percussion are there and everything is idyllic now. Over six instrumental songs Apotheosis, gently we move on to the seventh song Lucifer's Son. By far the best and most beautiful song on the whole album (personal impression). Gentle guitar tones opening song. I can hear the violin, which gives a special feeling of the track. Vocal indescribably good. Totally will crush you, but in that positive sense of the word. Ritual is filled completely and there is no doubt! Last track Faces In The Fog. Perfect for the end. For all fans of Sol Invictus, Arcana and Dead Can Dance.
Tips? A step forward has certainly been made. Timur was given the task of our scene that he finds counterpart, but honestly I think it's impossible. This album proved to be the best multiinstrumentalist on our scene. Artist! The album has already won first place for the best album of the year. Be sure!

Recenzija: BloodSoil - Endtimes, (2016.)

BloodSoil - Endtimes, (2016.)


(Scroll down for English)
BloodSoil, martial projekat Aeon-a iz Španije, oduvek me je oduševljavao. Volim martial muziku i sasvim je logično da pratim njegov rad od samih početaka. Pred vama je njegov poslednji i najnoviji album Endtimes, u izdanju Rage in Eden Records-a. Samo fizičko izdanje u potpunosti oslikava martial industrial u muzičkom žanru. Na cover-u jasno vidimo, haos je u prestonicama Evrope, jer "narodi sa mora" su stigli. Album ima šest pesama potpuno iskovanih u sirovom i pravom martial industrial-u.



Otvara ga numera Endtimes, uz cvrkute ptica, koje smenjuju zvuci sirene i upućuju nas na opasnost kao uvod u ono što nas čeka u Modernom svetu. Umirijući proročki glas nam sve objašnjava. Sve shvatamo i sve znamo, jer mi smo svedoci vremena u kome živimo. Lagano smo prešli na pesmu broj dva The March. Brže tonove čujemo. Pozivaju nas na marširanje. Odličan osećaj je stvoren. Adrenalin raste. Kao vojnici marširamo, jer Stara dama je u opasnosti. "Narodi sa mora" pristižu i traže utočište. Slušamo treću numeru Resistance. Otpor se javlja! Sukob se ne može izbeći. Fascinantni tonovi nas napadaju, dok mi uživamo. Već slušamo četvrtu pesmu Social Dissolution. Zvuk zvona i horskog pevanja nas uvodi u priču. Jedan nestvaran instrumental u martial žanru sa proročkim pozadinskim vokalima. Jedna od boljih pesama na albumu (lični utisak). Došli smo do pete i pretposlednje pesme Collapse. Kolaps stiže. Uzbuna je na svim nivoima. Domovi, porodice su ugrožene. Tradicija narušena. Povređenih ima svuda. Pad i propast su blizu. Agonija. Poslednja pesma The Hidden Truth i kraj albuma. Savršeno za kraj, najbolja pesma na celom albumu. Proročki opet slušamo glas, koji nam kazuje pravu istinu i suštinu Modernog sveta. Sve je smišljeno unapred, upakovano i servirano. Stari svet se mora otrgnuti. Svet jednakih, kakav se prezentira u takozvanom Modernom svetu, jednostavno ne postoji!
Utisci? BloodSoil, opet proročki najavljuje "sumrak Starog sveta", i to čini upravo svojom muzikom. Muzikom protiv politike Modernog sveta na najbolji mogući način. Tako nešto u potpunosti podržavam. Neka se glas što dalje čuje, neka se Stara dama probudi i vrati ono što joj pripada!

BloodSoil - Endtimes, (2016.)


BloodSoil, martial Aeon project from Spain, has always fascinated me. I love martial music, and it is quite logical to follow his work from the very beginning. In front of you is his last and most recent album Endtimes, published by Rage in Eden Records. The physical release is fully reflected in martial industrial music genre. On the cover clearly see chaos in the capitals of Europe, because "the peoples of the sea" have arrived. The album has six songs full minted in raw martial law and industrial-u.


Opens the track Endtimes, with bird songs, which alternate sounds of sirens and point to the danger as an introduction to what awaits us in the modern world. Prophetic voice we explained everything. All understand and know everything, because we are witnessing the times in which we live. Slowly we move on to number two song The March. Faster hear the tones. They invite us to march. Excellent feeling is created. Adrenaline increases. As the soldiers march because the Old lady is in danger. "The peoples of the sea" are coming and are seeking refuge. We're listening to the third track Resistance. Resistance occurs! The conflict can not be avoided. Fascinating tones attacking us while we enjoy. Already we hear the fourth song Social Dissolution. The sound of bells and choral singing introduces us to the story. One fanciful instrumental in martial genre with a prophetic background vocals. One of the better songs on the album (personal impression). We reached the fifth and penultimate song Collapse. The collapse is coming. Alert at all levels. Homes, families are threatened. Tradition impaired. Injured everywhere. Decline and Fall of the close. Agony. The last song The Hidden Truth and the end of the album. Perfect for the end, the best song on the whole album. Again we hear the prophetic voice that tells us the truth and essence of the Modern world. Everything is deliberately pre-packaged and served. Old world must break away. Council equal, what is presented in the so-called modern world simply does not exist!
Tips? BloodSoil again prophetically announces "the twilight of the Old World," and it makes just his music. The modern music against the policy of the Modern world in the best possible way. Something I fully support. Let the voice be told, let the Old lady wakes up and return what belongs to her!

Superhammer - Nameless, (CD-single, 2016.)


Kada neko izda singl, to i ne privlači pažnju pojedinih ljudi, ali mnogi greše. Mene je jedan posebno oduševio. To je Nameless, od sada već nadaleko čuvenog dvojca iz Inđije, benda Superhammer, koji čine Igor Jimmy Stanić  i Jadranka Tzetzah-chan Stanić. Bend pratim skoro pa od samih početaka. Doživeli su niz promena u sastavu, ali njih dvoje ne odustaju i nastavljaju da gruvaju na sceni. Upravo mi se to i sviđa kod njih. Kada najmanje očekujete, ovi vas razbiju enormonom dozom kvalitetne energije. Majner je kao i do sada stao iza ovog izdanja, a gost na bunjevima bio je Vojin Ratković. Miks je uradio Ivan Ilić. Cover "nedefinisano" dobar, prekriven crvenom bojom, dok je krst na pravom mestu i gleda nas. Ne sećam se ni više kada sam poručio album od benda, ali znam da ne pamtim da sam nešto više puta preslušavao u životu. I, znate šta, nije mi uopšte dovoljno. 


CD-single ima dve pesme Nameless i Fear and Regret. Dalji tekst je posvećen njima. Otvaraju je teški tonovi numerom Nameless. Rifovi se nižu. Čujemo vokal koji nas okružuje. Odličan osećaj stvaraju. Kombinacije čiste umetnosti i duše. Savršenstvo. Ovaj pravac kojim nas drže ne treba uopšte menjati. Bas, gitara biju po nama samo tako. Katarza! Prelazimo na drugu numeru Fear and Regret. Tonovi su još brži, dok mi nastavljamo uživanje u najboljoj pesmi (lični utisak). Tzetzah-chan je razbila vokalom u ovoj pesmi. Totalno mi se svideo pravac kojim su krenuli. Black Sabbath  na srpski način, sirovo, nabijeno, prosto maestralno. Pokazuju da su oni jedina i prava dobitna kombinacija za Superhammer.
Utisci? Šta drugo reći sem da je savršeno. Žanr totalno po mom ukusu. Pravi Superhammer. Ovaj CD-single trebate doživeti, kao početak novog puta kojim je Hammer krenuo u pripremanje nečeg velikog. Blistaće oni još više i jače, u to budite uvereni. Ovaj CD-single treba imati svaki poklonik prave muzike. Ah, da poslednje i najvažnije, što pre nabavite svoj primerak! Kontaktirajte bend ili pak izdavačku kuću, podržite scenu! Čujemo se!

Somnare - Bellum Esse, (2016.)



(Scroll down for English)
Somnare, duo iz Španije koji čine DP Rey i Pilar Molina u poslednje vreme zaokuplja moju pažnju. Nisam puno znao o njima, sem novog albuma Bellum Esse. Nakon preslušavanja uvideo sam da je ovaj bend fantastičan. Prosto mi je bilo krivo što ovaj bend nisam ranije otkrio. Krenuo sam u temeljno istraživanje samog projekta sastavljenog od izvrsnih multiinstrumentalista. Svoju muziku definišu kao Neoclassical Darkwave/Martial i stvaraju je kao pravi umetnici. Stvaraju muziku sa dušom. Uspostavljen je kontakt sa bendom i album Bellum Esse došao je do mene. Muzička izdavačka kuća Lichterklang uvidela je kvalitet i izdala album. Samo fizičko izdanje urađeno je u maniru pravog neoclassical darkwave muzičkog žanra. Nebesko plava boja je sveprisutna, dok kamena statua oslikava martial prisustvo. Album ima osam pesama i krećemo sa preslušavanjem. 


Počinjemo sa prvom pesmom Ruhig. Čujemo neoclassical vokal, koji nas uvodi u njihov svet. Tonovi se razlivaju, nastaje mistika. Već na samom startu vidimo savršenu kombinaciju neoclassical i martial muzičkog žanra. Prelazimo na drugu numeru, Bellum Esse. Ovom pesmom uspevaju da ožive "mrtav jezik", stari latinski. Pesma nabijena sirovim martial tonovima. Vokal maestralan. Čujemo i violončelo, što mi se posebno sviđa kao kombinacija uz martial muzički žanr. Dok naše uzbuđenje raste prelazimo na treću pesmu Passages of Melancholy. Gitara DP Rey-a se čuje dok proizvodi nežne tonove. Melanholija je oko nas, to nam ukazuje violončelo koje čujemo. Uživamo i ne želimo ništa da menjamo. Za kraj totalna katarza dok uživamo u vokalu Pilar Moline. Blaženstvo! Četvrta pesma Desertum Infinitus i sledeća peta Humanitatis Dormit vode nas u neki drugi svet. Martial žanr nas udara tako jako da ne možemo da ustanemo. Savršena kombinacija se nastavlja. Došli smo do šeste numere The Earth Slave. Brži tonovi su oko nas. Slušamo najbolju pesmu na ovom savršenom albumu (lični utisak). Horski vokal nas obuzima, dok tonovi postaju sve brži. Osećaj je nestvaran i to morate lično doživeti da biste me u potpunosti razumeli. Došli smo do pretposlednje sedme pesme Ego. Nastavljaju da nas i dalje uspešno obasipaju tonovima koje stvaraju violončelo, bas i dobijamo martial/neoclassical užitak. Naš ego postaje bitan. Mi postajemo Oni. Oni postaju Mi. Postajemo Jedno! Poslednja numera The Sun carved my Tears. Osećajno za kraj, savršeno za beskraj!
Utisci? Ovaj album, kao i ovaj projekat moraju se daleko čuti. Ja dajem svoj doprinos ovde u Srbiji, jer oni to jednostavno zaslužuju. Pridružite mi se da zajedno uživamo u muzici osećanja. Nećete se pokajati!

Somnare - Bellum Esse, (2016.)


Somnare, duo from Spain who make DP Rey and Pilar Molina lately attracts my attention. I did not know much about them, except for the new album Bellum Esse. After listening I realized that this fantastic band. Freedom to me was wrong that this band did not previously discovered. I went for a thorough analysis of the project, composed of excellent multi-instrumentalist. Their music is defined as Neoclassical Darkwave / Martial and make it like a real artist. Create music with soul. Contact was established with the band and the album Bellum Esse came to me. Music publishing house Lichterklang realized the quality and issued the album. Only the physical release was done in the manner of a true neoclassical darkwave music genre. Sky blue color is ubiquitous, while stone statue portrays martial presence. The album has eight songs and we start listening.


We start with the first song Ruhig. We hear neoclassical vocals, which introduces us into their world. Tones smears, resulting mysticism. At the very beginning we see a perfect combination of neoclassical and martial music genre. Moving on to another track, Bellum Esse. This song managed to revive a "dead language", the old Latin. Song charged raw martial tones. Masterful vocals. We hear the cello, which I really like as a combination with the martial music genre. While our excitement grows pass on the third song Passages of Melancholy. Guitar DP-Rey and be heard while the products are gentle tones. Melancholy is about us, it shows us that we hear cello. We enjoy i do not want anything to change. The place of total catharsis, while enjoying the vocals Pilar Moline. Bliss! The fourth song Desertum Infinitus and the next fifth Humanitatis dormit lead us into another world. Martial genre hit us so hard that we can not stand up. The perfect combination continues. We came to the sixth track The Earth Slave. Faster tones are all around us. We listen to the best song on this album is the perfect (personal impression). Choral vocals overtakes us, while tones are becoming faster. The feeling is unreal and that you have to experience personally to completely understand me. We came to the penultimate seventh song Ego. We continue to remain successful showered with shades that create a cello, bass and get martial / neoclassical pleasure. Our ego becomes essential. We become they. They become me. We become one! The Sun carved my Tears. last track. With feeling for the place perfect for endless!
Tips? This album, and the project must be far away to hear. I give my contribution here in Serbia, because they simply deserve. Join me that together we enjoy music feelings. You wont regret!
