New York based Sci-Fi death metal band ARTIFICIAL BRAIN have completed work on their debut album “Labyrinth Constellation”.
Featuring Revocation guitarist Dan Gargiulo and ex-Biolich (which once featured CASTEVET vocalist/guitarist Andrew Hock) vocalist Will Smith, ARTIFICIAL BRAIN deliver a devastating offering of atmospheric, dark, twisted and dissonant ambient death metal horror which harbours a heavy Sci-Fi aura surrounding its aesthetic. “Labyrinth Constellation” is the band’s debut album, after a series of demos which made their rounds within the death metal underground, and an album that will make quite the impression within the U.S. death metal scene.

After a number of delays, through bouts of furious obsessiveness to bring the new AVICHI album to manifestation, AVICHI sole-mastermind/proprietor Andrew Markuszewski (aka Aamonael) has finally completed work on the third AIVCHI album, “Catharsis Absolute”.
In what will reveal itself as the ultimate work in the AVICHI repertoire and within Markuszewski’s own body of work, “Catharsis Absolute” pushes the sonic boundaries that Markuszewski laid down through his vision of true black metal with the debut AVICHI album “The Divine Tragedy” and its follow-up “The Devil’s Fractal”. “Catharsis Absolute” is a glorious yet furious and moving black metal opus…
The new VAURA album “The Missing” (stream the entire album for a limited time via Pitchfork HERE) and the re-issue of YOB’s “Catharsis” are both now available to order (CD versions), process, and ship prior to their official Nov 12th release date. The new Vaura album (check packaging HERE) is a sonically rich album consisting of a seamless mix of progressive metal and classic goth/darkwave that creates a solid identity for this band comprised of such virtuosic musicians.

*UPDATE: Due to an unfortunate incident while in Sacramento when the band’s van got broken into and the band’s instruments and other valuables were stolen (a list of what was stolen HERE), SUBROSA had to drop off the tour. Due to these events that have unfurled, a gracious friend of the band, Kevin Musgrave was generous enough to start a fundraising page for the band to help them recover from this incident and the band have surpassed their fundraising goal. To raise a bit more money for the band, we are also auctioning off a test pressing…
