Anna Gardeck - Bondage Women

Excellent industrial, thematically focusing on fetishism, female domination and bondage which makes this one of the most interesting releases in the genre that I have heard in quite some time. Highly recommended.

Old One - s/t

Here's some traditionally tinged doom with a few modern tweaks by a two-piece (drums, bass) from the US. Great fuzzed-out trad-doom riffs and some grooving bass solos. So grab a beer, sit back, relax, light one up, and enjoy the fuzz.

Siamese Twins - Demo (2011)

Here is a new band playing catchy post-punk with a gothic feel akin to The Cure. There is a shoegaze edge to the sound as well. One of the best demos I've heard this year, give it a listen.

Alrakis - Omega Cen

This is awesome. Atmospheric, ambient black metal dedicated to space, constellations and galaxies. Whoa. How could this not be incredible? Obviously for fans of Darkspace but I actually think this may be better.

Roses Never Fade - Fade To Black

Dark neo-folk project featuring members from multiple countries, including Dwid Hellion (Integrity), Thorsten Wilhelm, Mathew Shack, Nick Fiction, Stephanie VH, and Adami. This is surprisingly great, sitting somewhere between Death in June, Agalloch and :Of the Wand and the Moon:.
