Charlotte based indie label Forgotten Empire Records (home to The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, Day Without Dawn, among others) has just launched a series of e-cards online in support of their recent and upcoming releases.
These include Portland, Oregon's Ninth Moon Black, fresh off sharing the stage with the likes of doom giants Middian and Indian as well as label mates Blackwaves from Germany. Ninth Moon Black push the progressive ambient genre with dropped guitars that go from metal-induced to eerily slow and delayed, drum beats that serve to hold the whole structure of sound up with double-kicked metal parts or even trip-hop-influenced loops, spacey synthesizers that add epic strings, retro synth lines, and experimenting into noise, a loud bass that rumbles below every track, never venturing too far from the lower strings, and unsettling movie audio samples that surface from time to time as the only human voice that is heard, communicating a feeling of desperation.
"Boston's Voyager" is a self-titled EP clocking just over 32 minutes of sparse, emotional, melodic, desperate and always punishing music. Fans of Mare, Old Man Gloom and ISIS should take note.
Also available in it's full is a split cd, consisting of Scottish instrumentalists Fire on the Horizon and North Carolina's From Oceans to Autumn. Fire on the Horizon has an amazingly dense, thoughtful sound slow moving sound. Focusing on textures of ethereal guitar melodies, their music has often been compared with Cult of Luna, Mono or This Will Destroy. From slow paced riffs to bone crushing rhythms, ambient interludes and beautiful melodies, From Oceans To Autumn combines experimental metal and psychedelic rock with a spaced out feeling of weightlessness and droned-out atmospheres.
UK experimental rock/metal band Fire On The Horizon has signed a record deal with Forgotten Empire Records. The band is currently working on there upcoming album, and a planned release is scheduled later this year.
