Darkher Weathers "The Buried Storm"

Doom metal has a wonderful way of painting the darkest mental landscapes there could be. Sometimes, just the sound can conjure up thoughts of harsh terrain, oppressive surroundings and even make one's skin feel cold. Such is the case with "The Buried Storm," the latest offering from English dark doom outfit Darkher.

A one woman band led by Jayn Maiven, it was in 2016 that the first album, "Realms" was released and six years later, the sophomore effort, "The Buried Storm" is available. To find out more about the record, the gap in between releases and more, Metal Underground was fortunate enough to put some questions to Jayn Maiven, who had the following to say:

Diamond Oz: Congratulations on your new album, "The Buried Storm." It's been six years since your debut full length "Realms" was released. Why was there such a long gap in between albums?

Jayn Maiven: Thank you . For many reasons, for the first couple of years following ‘Realms’ release, I was focused on playing live and touring. Following that I had some ill health and collectively we had the pandemic which slowed things down, but i think for the most part an album can take time to be complete, especially when doing the writing, production, recording and mixing alone- it can be a very slow process.

Oz: Musically, what would you say makes "The Buried Storm" different from “Realms"?

Jayn: I think there is more emphasis and focus on the orchestral instruments and the harmonies on this album. It felt more cinematic and visual when i was creating it.

Oz: What's the meaning behind the album title?

Jayn: The storm relates to dark emotions and The Buried Storm refers to leaving those emotions behind and finding a sense of peace.

Baest Brutalises The Black Heart

Unquestionably one of Europe's fastest rising death metal bands, Denmark's Baest has been on a relentless stampede ever since releasing their debut album, "Danse Macabre" in August 2018. Only a year and a month later, the quintet would unleash the superb, "Venenum," with their third full length, "Necro Sapiens" following in March 2021. Not one to rest on their laurels, Baest will be releasing a new EP, "Justita" this month and to celebrate, the band has been headlining venues across Europe, including a stop in London to perform at The Black Heart.

The Black Heart is an interesting venue, tucked away on Greenland Place, the next street over from The Underworld, it boasts a fantastic downstairs bar, decorated with gig posters and the best soundtrack a metal fan could ask for. Upstairs, just past the toilets, is where you'll find the performance area, where on this occasion, deathcrusties Sewer Trench were kicking off proceedings. Honestly speaking, Sewer Trench were fine. They had some good support locally, but most of those who weren't part of their circle of friends seemed a bit nonplussed. They were a solid band to open a death metal show and may be worth checking out if you like the style, but offered little in the way of memorable songs or stage presence. More...

Post. Festival 2022 Lineup Announced

Post. Festival is back with a grander scope and eyes set on establishing the finest assemblage of niche rock artists to take place on American soil. Following the examples set by like-minded European events, the Post. Festival is as much about community and respect and support as it is about music and culture. It is a celebration both for fans and artists, an opportunity to come together and revel in a scene that has built itself from within to the point of global presence, without the aid of commercial status. Some of the most exceptional and creative musicians work within the realms of “post”-adjacent genres, and it is this festival’s goal to bring as many of them as possible together for one weekend to give them the opportunity to show out and share their work with a wildly dedicated fan base.


Post. Festival Day 1 will begin at 5pm on Friday, September 9, and Day 2 will begin at 3pm on Saturday, Sept. 10. More...
