This year was really productive for Narrow House. We had an opportunity to present our new post-funeral-era stuff here in Kyiv, and of course we had released our first album. Actually we are really happy how it turned out, as "A Key to Panngrieb" was accepted pretty good generally. This is just a starting point for us, and the new album is in work for some time now. Thanks for support guys and girls, see you in 2013.

So, happy New Year and stuff :D. Time to get back to work. Currently Solitude Prod. runs a poll which is all about best releases of 2012. Vote for Narrow House if you feel like. The poll is located in the right sidebar under the "Bestsellers" block. Thanks!

And now for something completely different. Recently I Saw a Twitter update from St. Vitus saying they've added something new to their Reverbnation account. So, I checked out this WEB site and created a page there for Narrow House as well. You can find it here: https://www.reverbnation.com/narrowhouseukr

I've already added some pics and vids there, but it will take some time before I will succeed in adding everything. One of the coolest things about this service is that it gives you an opportunity to actually create an application for Androids and iPhones/iPads/etc. So, if you want all the updates, pics, vids, news, free songs and other blah-blahs in one place - this is a good thing to start with.

It is absolutely free (of course) and can be downloaded here: https://www.reverbnation.com/narrowhouseukr/app

It seems like we're receiving some new reviews again. Spanish "Pitchline Zine" on "A Key to Panngrieb":

"An interesting album, that despite arriving a little late, shows that Eastern Europe is still the undisputed Stronghold Doom Metal, and if we dig a little, there are always surprises".

Unfortunately, the confusion fest continues, as they call me an Absolute author of the music, and mention our recent saxophone player, who has never participated in recording of that particular album. The full googletranslated version can be found here: http://translate.google.ru/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pitchline-zine.com%2Freviews.item.php%3Fid%3D002609

Nobody expected the Spanish inquisition!

Yet another Japanese store spotted selling "A Key to Panngrieb": Weird Truth Productions (http://www.weirdtruth.jp/cgi-bin/webstore/store.cgi?pmode=detail&selected_id=20130115232420).

And there seems to be some kind of discounts at German based Steinklang Mailorder: http://www.steinklang.at/shop/index.php?main_page=product_music_info&cPath=45&products_id=6312

Great, something is happening again :D! "A Key to Panngrieb" has been nominated to "Metal Storm Awards 2012" in "Extreme Doom" category. We will have to Fight such doom titans as Ahab, Evoken, Faal and many others to win! So, we need as much votes as we can get . Can't do that without your help.

To vote you'll have to register at Metal Storm website (you can connect using your Facebook account, so it's pretty simple, actually) and vote for "A Key to Panngrieb". Thank you for your support!

Few more stores around the globe are selling our stuff now:

- http://www.cd-russia.com/NARROW-HOUSE-A-Key-To-Panngrieb , а Russian based webstore that seems very English-friendly and willing to send CDs anywhere in the world
- http://www.musikaze.com/en/music/labels/label.php?cod=589&site=ODIOSONORO& , a Spanish label, that has a limited number of our CDs. The owner advises to mail him, as they are not listed in the store: odiosonoro[at]gmail.com

So, the voting at Metal Storm was closed, and we made it in the top 3 after all. Thanks to everyone for your support!

We are happy to inform you guys that we will start recording our new album in a week or so. All the tracking, mixing and mastering will be performed by famous Ukrainian Morton Studio: http://mortonstudio.com

We'had successfully recorded all the guitars for the upcoming album. Next stop - vocals.

Recently we had our first guest musician in the studio - a vocalist from famous Ukrainian band I Miss My Death (http://imissmydeath.at.ua/eIndex.html) that will share a stage with Shape of Despair and Mourning Beloveth at international Ukraininan based festival Doom Over Kiev VI.

So, we've successfully passed another milestone with recording of our next album. Just like "A Key to Panngrieb" it will also contain cello! But in addition to that we've also decided to use stringed bass (contrabass), which makes it three bass instruments on the future album counting a more common bass guitar as well. Heavy stuff.

Apr 14, 2013 5:10 AM ET #64 (permalink)

On 13.04.13 we have recorded all necessary instruments for our upcoming album. The honor to close our last recording session in the studio had been given to saxophone, which will be present in most of the songs. Anyway, we still need our album to be mixed and mastered, so stay tuned!

Today we are happy to show you the album art for our next album - "Thanathonaut". This time we have collaborated with Christophe Dessaigne, a French photographer and digital artist (http://www.midnight-artwork.com/).

His illustrations have been used for covers of many books including works of Stephen King, Agatha Christie, Margaret Atwood and other famous writers.

The face of the new Narrow House album (literally) will become an art called "The Miracle and the Sleeper", which carries the same mystic spirit as "A Key to Panngrieb". Get ready for a new journey to your inner world - it won't leave you indifferent.

Good news for fans of our first album! Petro Rogutskyi who was the part of original Narrow House lineup, will be a guest drummer for "Thanathonaut". Petro will show his workmanship in a new way, proving his talent once again.

The work on our new album is coming to an end, and it is time to reveal the tracklist for "Thanathonaut". To make this more entertaining we are presenting yet another work of Christophe Dessaigne we have used as album art:

Today we are celebrating 4 years of Narrow House activity, and we feel like giving you something as a present. So, we are proud to present the first issue of Thanathonaut Recording Chronicles, which will give you some interesting details on how we approached the recording process of our new album.

Enjoy and subscribe to our channel for further issues!

2013 will end soon, and so is our epic studio diary. We have already showed you how we handled guitars, strings, saxophone and vocals. The fifth installment of «Thanathonaut Recording Chronicles» will finalize our recording process with drums and keys, giving you a few more audio samples from the upcoming album.
Watch this and get ready for something completely special!
