01. A Dead End

Tengil is a fictional character and the main antagonist of The Brothers Lionheart, a Swedish children's novel by Astrid Lindgren. His name is taken from viking age rune stones (like Katla & Karm) and means "lord".

Tengil is the evil ruler of the paradise-like thorn rose valley in Nangijala. He resides in his own land of Karmanjaka, from which he oppresses the people and force them to build him a fortress. Tengil's power relies on the army of soldiers he commands, the Black Riders and well as Katla the dragon, which he controls with a magical lure. His soldiers execute anyone seen resisting Tengil's rule, but there's a resistance forming in the thorn rose valley. At the end, Jonathan Lionheart, one of the protagonists, steals the lur of Katla and Tengil, now without her control, is killed.

Tengil are post-rock/hardcore band with some screamo elements. I was taken by surprise when I heard their latest single, which reminded me the band "Her Name Is Calla", but with some screamo parts.

News: Autism released "The Crawling Chaos" on CD

Lithuanian post rock / post metal solo project Autism started 2014 by releasing their debut album "The Crawling Chaos" on a CD. This album originally was presented as a digital mp3 release in early 2013, which got quite positive reactions in the underground scene, which led to the cooperation with Mexican label Throat Productions, which released this album.

This album takes a darker turn with the narration of fragments of HP Lovecraft's maddening story "The Crawling Chaos." The album's heavy guitars and pounding drums drive add to the telling of an Opium overdose over a century ago. The combination of spoken word, post rock, and ambient sounds were composed in the way that each listener could relive all the emotions of the main character.

"This album was a big step in Autism biography. I was always interested in music which had solid, interesting and strong concept behind it. After the album was finished, I personally was very proud of how it came out. Sound, the atmosphere and whole concept merged together so well that this release set the bar for future Autism albums higher than I could imagine. So "The Crawling Chaos" has put a lot of pressure on me, but the same time made me feel proud." - explained the man behind Autism.

"The Crawling Chaos" is a soundtrack to HP Lovecrafts novel and the same time a tribute to the genius writer.

This release can be bought directly from the artist from:

Lights & Motion (until 2012/11 known as Aerials) is built around the 24 year old Swedish musician Christoffer Franzén. In the fall of 2011, he started to spend nights alone in the studio, learning about the different ways of recording and creating music. With no one else there with him, he was forced to pick up all the different kinds of instruments that he felt he needed himself. Songs started to emerge during these late night sessions, and Lights & Motion started to take its form. Built on melodies, ambient soundscapes and crushing crescendos, Lights & Motion draws you in and doesn’t let you go.

After many years of playing various styles of music together, in 2009 Todos Caerán formed and began writing post rock influenced screamo. Now, nearly 4 years later and after a host of releases including an EP, full length and 6 splits, as well as a line up change which brought in two new integral members, they return with their sophomore LP, Town of Cats.

Following in the footsteps of their first album, After Dark, Town of Cats weaves between pounding, driving crescendos and soft eerie lulls for six tracks lyrically inspired by the works of Haruki Murakami.

Pulling influences from multiple bands and genres and mixing them together amid the cold Canadian winter has pushed Todos Caerán’s sound from mere Funeral Diner worship to something more explosive and dynamic which they can call their own.
