LUSTRE – THEY AWOKE TO THE SCENT OF SPRING (LP REPRINT) DUE SOON

Dated 2012, a piece of history of the Atmospheric Black Metal wave will be finally pressed on a gatefold LP format. Through the year LUSTRE has been rightfully recognized by most of the followers as a point of reference in shaping the guidelines of a majestic vision inspired by the northern nature.

XUL OV KVLTEN – NEW ALBUM ON ATMF

XUL OV KVLTEN are ready to get further exposure via ATMF after the totally underground and strictly limited debut album, where they proved their dedication to the darkest and vilest form of black/death metal.

Before all of that, though, there was De Occulta Philosophia, first released in 2007 on Supernal Music, and now given new breath by ATMF. It couldn’t have come at a better moment either, the scathing-yet-starborne ‘Your Blood, […]
