MOON XI - MÚSPELLZHEIMR "Hyldest Til Trolddommens Flamme/Demo Compilation" 2CD
MÚSPELLZHEIMR are the new, blurred-out face of Denmark's fast-rising black metal scene. Only the purest and most traditional black metal is utilized within this idiom; however, the band's vision - and those of their close comrades - is boundless, thus making the "old" new and vice versa, like the ouroboros forever devouring its tail. MÚSPELLZHEIMR's majestic, mystical black metal is much like that: starkly vast, circular, hypnotic, buried deeply in the abyss, both in the physical and spiritual senses.
Originally released in 2015, Hyldest til Trolddommens Flamme was MÚSPELLZHEIMR's bolt-from-the-blue full-length debut, a veritable Ground Zero for this exciting development within black metal's deepest underground (and which largely revolves around the Afgrundsvisioner nebula of predominantly Danish and Swedish artists). Immediately instilling austerity and iciness but soon burning hot with a passion and poignancy that's blanching to behold, Hyldest til Trolddommens Flamme is a dizzying yet feverishly melodic rumination on the mysteries of nature and the beyond. Its frequent detours into placid, acoustic-led territory is forever haunting, as well as the band's overall grasp of dynamics: truly, this is the work of actual humans who play as a band rather than the sterile cut 'n' paste (or worse) of so much nowadays "black metal"; paradoxically, this decidedly "un-human" human touch is refreshingly life-affirming whilst losing none of black metal's core misanthropy. At 42 time-evaporating minutes, the album hovers and then smothers - truly, an experience that eternally etched MÚSPELLZHEIMR's name into modern legendry.
Released earlier this year by Afgrundsvisioner but only digitally, the equally lengthy Demo Compilation includes three incrementally rawer iterations of Hyldest til Trolddommens Flamme tracks as well as two raw iterations from MÚSPELLZHEIMR's third album, Raukn. Fervent fans from the beginning, LUNAR APPARITIONS is honored to bring together these two works on 2CD format, giving a timely glimpse into past, present, and future. (Text by Nathan T. Birk)
Double CD co-released with Amor Fati.

MOON VIII - PRIMOGENORUM "Ye Last Ordeal" MCD
PRIMOGENORUM was spawned in the morbid pits of Ukraine in 2008, from the sick mind of Lucifug. Always using the purest/purist foundation of black metal as an instrument of unhumanity and spiritual perdition, under the PRIMOGENORUM banner has Lucifug released two full-lengths as well as several demos and splits during these dark years.
Now, 10 years after the first demo, the circle is complete with Ye Last Ordeal, which will indeed be the last opus of the band. Everything has been said; you only should have listened. Rotten and ruinous to the very last note, to the last slit of the listener's throat, this is the forlorn final chapter upon the path of PRIMOGENORUM: diseased, desiccated, sickness of the mind, body, and soul, all-caps BLACK METAL to the bitter, lonely end. See you in Hell! Adalord Satan Haegl!
Listen: PRIMOGENORUM- "On the Ground of the Dying Man"
