The debut album called “Aethyr Abyss Void” of the California duo Haex burst onto the world’s Industrial scene like a heavy thermonuclear projectile! But Haex can hardly be called newbies; it’s just that the path to the first full-length record was quite long and winding. This can be judged just by the fact that the messages about the “final stage” of work on the album at the band’s social networks date back to the beginning of 2019… And the first single of the album appeared on Bandcamp in the middle of 2017.
This is what we’ve all been waiting for… Ok, maybe not we all, but the editors of NDH FM for sure! After the release of numerous singles, the second album of a young (at heart) NDH-project called Kuhlmann saw the light of day with the laconic title “Zwo” (“Two”) with a portrait of the band’s frontman, Walter Kuhlmann, on the cover. Moreover, judging by the photo, Walter did not assume that he was being photographed for a cover art, but the visual part of Kuhlmann requires a separate discussion, which we will move on to a little later, but for now let`s focus on the music. Moreover, Kuhlmann have not yet acquired a solid fan base and I think it makes sense to talk more about the fundamental moments in the band’s sound.
The seventh album by the band called Schwarzer Engel with the not-so-inventive title “Sieben” (“Seven”) became one of the first high-profile novelties of the year. Of course, I simply couldn’t ignore Dave Jason’s new record (unfortunately, I don’t know the real name of the leader of “black angels”). After all, since the announcement of the release of the very first album of the project back in 2010, it was clear that something very noticeable was waiting for us within the framework of the German Gothic Metal scene.
And now, a year later, the band presents the ideological continuation of this record – the album called “Helheim”. Actually, the fact that the band would continue to move in the direction set by “Yggdrasil” became evident after the announcement of the title of the new work and the release of its cover. But where the pagan motives have led the “earth dwellers” this time, we will understand below.
