Year of No Light
“This is instrumental music meant to carry you to other worlds within yourself”
Decibel Magazine

Year of No Light celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band in 2021. On the occasion of this, they are releasing not only their new album “Consolamentum”, but a wooden box set containing their entire discography of 5 studio albums, several split EPs, and the collaboration with Belgian composer Dirk Serries from the 'Live At Roadburn' recordings, on 12 vinyl records.

Sometimes adding more weight to something that's already heavy feels like relief. When the staggering build-up of layer on layer of guitars and synths towards the end of 'Aletheia' reaches its boiling point, when the tension and drama become too suffocating to bear, the sudden discharge into the following upbeat part, based on a single power chord gallopping away at the speed of no light feels strangely alleviative. This is the moment when the feet leave the ground, and the bones of the arms of the heretic crack, being pulled up in a strappado behind his back. One of the most agonizing and arguably one of the greatest moments in heavy music of the past decade.

Yearof  No Light’s lengthy, sprawling compositions of towering walls of guitars and sombre synths irradiate a sense of dire solemnity and spiritual gravity, and couldn't be a more fitting soundtrack for such grim medieval scenarios. But there is also the element of absolution, regeneration, elevation, transcendence in the face of death. Consolamentum is dense, rich and lush and yet somehow feels starved and deprived.

GRAND AQUILA

Grand Aquila est un groupe belge de post-metal, formé en 2020 offrant une musique puissante et captivante, qui fusionne harmonies épiques et intensité viscérale. Composé de quatre membres issus de la scène post-rock et post-metal, le groupe, basé à Huy en Belgique, s’est donné pour mission de créer une musique toujours plus sombre et intense. Leur premier album, enregistré de manière indépendante entre 2021 et 2022, démontre leur engagement à produire des paysages sonores expansifs. Les compositions sombres laissent entrevoir subtilement de l'espoir, avec des interludes instrumentaux analogiques soigneusement élaborés. Une expérience musicale audacieuse qui transcende les frontières.
