Aghast Afterglow-Imaging

Artist: 
Aghast Afterglow
Release: 
Imaging
Label: 
Revalve Records

 The year is almost to an end and we have seen some pretty good releases so far, from all subgenres of metal. The creativity and the flare never stopped burning and for sure metal still has it. While I am mostly a fan of harsher forms of metal, an occasional chilled and softer album comes by okay. In this case a prosperous gothic and symphonic metal duo from Italy. Actually, Aghast Afterglow was a duo just couple of weeks ago.

Christine Plays Viola-Leocadia

Artist: 
Christine Plays Viola
Release: 
Leocadia
Label: 
afmusic

For my first review for Subexistance I was asked to choose a band from afmusic, a German label working with underground dark wave and gothic bands. And since it was going to be my first review, I wanted it to be as positive as possible; therefore I picked an Italian band with a beautiful name, Christine Plays Viola. And the review is about their latest single-EP, “Leocadia”, which was released on 31 May 2013.

Ecnephias - Inferno

Artist: 
Ecnephias
Release: 
Inferno
Label: 
Scarlet Records

This is the third album from Italian band Ecnephias and it is under the microscope of subexistance. We took an in-depth look.

Ecnephias are self-proclaimed "representatives of the occult metal scene with mediterrenean elements". This is not far from the truth. Their music can best be described as gothic metal european-style, structurally similar to Paradise Lost, but with a distinct sound and approach reminiscent of Moonspell's and Rotting Christ's darker and melody-driven records.
