A little note: lyrics are in Italian, if you're asking yourself.

Hope you like it, and till next time!

Caelestis - Seaspell

Hi, moonlighters,
Today I'll share with you some more music by me.
My last EP Seaspell is up for download on my Bandcamp:
Musically, it's a mix of ambient, electronica and post-rock. The atmosphere constantly changes, depicting many worlds and feelings. This also features vocals by me, bringing this EP even farer from my previous works. Seaspell is composed of one single massive track of half an hour.

The cover art is by me, too.

Hope you enjoy! :D

Old Silver Key - Burnt Letters

I'm not writing since so much time, but as soon as I saw this, I thought it was time for me to share the discovery. Old Silver Key, a project which was announced so much time ago, finally released their first song, Burnt Letters. Old Silver Key is composed by Drudkh members and features Neige from Alcest on vocals. The mix is amazing, and the full album will be released in september. Don't miss it. Or I'll have to kill you all. :3

Kendra Springer - Hope

Hi, dear followers, today I bring to you something different, but really, really worth the listen:
a piano solo album.
Kendra Springer is a young piano player. She released an album and a single only, but she's really skilled. A semi-genius, I would say. I immediately leave you to her music, so you can understand what I'm talkin' about.

If you liked it (I hope so, you heartless! :3), here's her official website
and you can download her album for free on Jamendo.

Have a nice time!

Alcest new song in Moscow

This is it. Alcest decided to reveal one of his songs from the new album during this live show in Moscow.
The result, as always, is totally flawless. I actually enjoyed just Neige's vocals, though...
Thank god they'll be the only ones in the studio record. :3

Also, sorry I was away all this time, I had some problems. :3

Caelestis - LSD HD

I will talk today about an academic project I have been working on with two of my friends, Antonella Garofalo and Simona Caramiello. LSD HD consists of an audio-graphic software projected through a rotating kaleidoscope. This interactive audio-graphic software was created by me, as well as its graphics and its interactive music.
Here is the video of the great day. :3

Caelestis - The Blue

Ok, I'm feeling pretty egocentric today, so let's talk about Caelestis news.
First of all, my track "The Blue" from my first album is now on Youtube, so give it a spin even though it's not as evolved as my new "Moon Ray". Hope you will enjoy it, it's primitive but with feeling. I suppose. :3

Also, Moon Ray is now DOWNLOADABLE! Woohoo.
So here's the link to its bandcamp page. HERE
You just have to click "Buy it" and name your price.
You can also download it for FREE obviously!
Help me conquer the iPods of the world! :3

And till next time!

Sorg Uten Tårer - Our Night Songs Will Forever Be...

In December 2010, Sorg Uten Tarer, this black-folk metal one-man band, released his last work, Our Night Will Forever Be...
Well, even though some tracks are not really masterpieces, the whole album is an amazing experience to listen to. You can feel the night, the water, the moon between the mountains. The melancholy.
Mostly, this is a black metal album, and is full of harsh, growly passages, but the clean parts... the clean parts are simply wonderful.

Here is SUT's website, where all his ten releases are up to a free download.
Have fun. :3

This is one of the best tracks out of the album, it's full of feeling, listen to it in a night of full moon. :3

I'll soon talk about another Sorg Uten Tarer album, stay... uhm, tuned.

Caelestis - Moon Ray

Hi, guys. Since I've been working on my new album since a bit, I decided to promote my new song with a video. I filmed it in the town where I live, and I think the images underline pretty well the nature of the music.
I hope you'll enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed making it.

If you want to give some help, spread this video, share it, or simply watch it if you are feeling lazy. :3

No need to write my specifics: my MySpace, Facebook, Twitter etc. links are all here ---->
On your right, sirs.

Thanks for everything, and have a nice day.

Final Light - To Stop An Exploding Man

Hi there, dear DOM followers, today we talk again about the amazing post-rock band Final Light.
The record I present you today is entitled "To Stop An Exploding Man".
It's certainly not as good as the excellent "Carry Me Home", published some time later...
But it's still a truly enjoyable release, full of emotion and melancholy.
Give it a try, it deserves it. :3


Their MYSPACE is here
and the DOWNLOAD LINK too. :D

French Teen Idol - Enlightened False Consciousness

Electro-post-rock is the matter of today.
French Teen Idol is an Italian artist from Rome who published three albums until now.
His music is full of voice samples and glitch drums.
And of emotion.
FTI's guitar and piano atmospheres are truly valuable and will probably induce some kind of trance while listening.
Warmly recommended, you'll probably love it.


or his MySpace
Finally, here's the link to DOWNLOAD this beautiful release.

Finally, one of the best tracks out of the release, for a preview.

Let it enlight your false consciousness. :3

Bach Prelude in D Minor - Nargaroth's Sommer

Hi, people! Today we talk of something a bit different than usual...
I was roaming the YouTube when I found this pretty nice metal cover of Bach's Prelude, here. Take a look at it, it's really short.

Well, after I listened to it, I thought that it remembered me something... really much.
Just a few seconds and I realised that the analogies with this masterpiece by Nargaroth are outstanding. This is Sommer from Nargaroth's "Jahreszeiten" album. Give it a spin...
I hope you'll be as amazed as I was to discover that even an extreme author like Nargaroth got inspired by classical music at this point.

By the way, let's also talk about Jahreszeiten, since it's a killer album.
Nargaroth is an author which always expressed rage and fury through his amazing songs, but this (which by the way is his newest album) work features a cleaner sound and a more spiritual approach. The work "talks" about the seasons, and every song is dedicated to one of them. Personally, I think they're not only the seasons of the nature, but also of human life, or human love... the cycle of living. ...Oh well, pardon. :3


I won't post a download to this album since it's NOT free and I'm not promoting piracy on this blog.
Also, Nargaroth appears to hate any sort of MySpace thingy, so he just opened a site of his own.
So here it is, NARGAROTH'S REIGN
Be sure to look forward to Nargaroth's next album, to be released in April! :D

I hope you enjoyed this different post. If you have some feedback to it, just write it down in the comments. :3

Helsingfors - Schematics

Hi, everybody, happy you decided to lose some time again here on DOM, and let's start!
Today's matter is Helsingfors, a math-rock project from London, UK. The mind behind this band is the same of "Loss of a Child" and "Final Light", James Morris, as I already said in older posts. A genius, I think. :D
Well, math-rock is not a really well-known genre, but it's pretty interesting and fresh-sounding. Describing it is not really easy... well, it's kind of a highly experimental post-rock, with sudden changes and unusual riffs. And Schematics by Helsingfors is the best exponent of this kind of music. This is the first demo by the band, and is made up of four songs, can't tell which one is the most beautiful.
More than recommended, this is mandatory, expecially if you like fresh, new stuff but you still want something on the melodic, emotional side.
Support this awesome band! Personally, I can't wait for their next release.


And here, their MySpace
You can also buy a physical copy HERE

Give them a spin... this is Panda Conundrum, maybe the best song out of the release. :3

And till next time!

Final Light - Further Than You Think

Hi, everybody, here we are for a new interesting album.
Back in post-rock/shoegaze/electro-progressive, we talk about Final Light, a side project of James Morris, the brilliant mind behind From The Sky and Helsingfors.
What we have here is a really delicate yet intense album, which offers not only progressive ideas and excellent piano lines, but also some killer percussion riffs.
Tracks are lengthy and meditative, and their quality is really high.


This is their MySpace FINAL LIGHT
And here's the DOWNLOAD

Finally, have fun with the vid!

And till next time! :3

Conquest - Empire

Hi people, new year is here and we're starting out with an incredibly nice power metal release.
We talk about the album "Empire" by the band "Conquest, by Kiev.
As I said already, this CD from 2009 is a perfect choice for Power lovers who are looking for some free stuff. General quality is really high, vocals are powerful and guitars are clean and excellent overall, expecially in the fast solos. Only, the music is not really original... you won't find anything new here, but only much quality power metal.

Conquest MySpace: HERE
You can download this from their site. DOWNLOAD
This is not the only work of the band, so you can check out their site for more. Anyway, I'll probably write about them again, so this is it.

If you want to listen to them before...

And happy 2011! :D
