EXPERIMENTAL LITHUANIAN SLUDGE BAND ERDVE UNVEIL A NEW TRACK

We’re teamed up with Season Of Mist so that you can sample a track from Lithuania’s Erdve. Sharing no less than the title-track, the band comment: “Our debut album’s title-track ‘Vaitojimas’ is also the very first song that we wrote.

We caught up Germany’s Rebel Souls for a long-overdue chat about the band’s debut full-length The Forces Of Darkness; an album it transpires, that was written 15 long years ago… “Rebel Souls is a death metal project originally hailing from Thuringia, Germany, founded in 2000 by then 17-year old Thomas Plewnia (Guitars) and Stefan Hielscher (Bass, Vocals). Named after the second album of Polish underground veterans Damnation, we aimed to produce fast and raw death metal in the vein of Vader, Vomitory or Krisiun. Between 2000 and 2003, we home-recorded a couple of demos and played a handful of local gigs. However, our...
