Ad aprire le danze dello split il duo degli Ah Ciliz, band formatasi come progetto iniziale nel 2008 e con all’attivo diverse uscite tra demo, split, e full lenght, che ci presenta tre stupefacenti brani il cui effetto oscuro e ma...

On November 6th, the record labels Hypnotic Dirge Records and Throats Productions are releasing a new split together. Origins, as it is called, will contain music from the atmospheric black metal bands Ah Ciliz and Chiral. I already know Chiral's music, but this will be my first time listening to Ah Ciliz. Curious! 

Ah Ciliz started in 2008 as a solo project of Elmer, but nowadays Boris Iolis takes care of Ah Ciliz's vocals. You ...

Out on November 6th 2017, atmospheric post black metal band, Chiral will release a split album with atmospheric black metal band, Ah Ciliz. The split, entitled ‘Origins’, will be out via Hypnotic Dirge Records and Throats Productions.

Ah Ciliz get the album started with a trio of icy cold, dripping in dark atmosphere tracks. Cascadia has all the harder elements that will get a black metal fan excited but also includes plenty of me...

 I’ve covered a few splits over the course of the last few months, and they’ve all been fantastic, oddly enough. It seems that 2017 has been a great year for all types of albums from full-lengths to splits, and I recently found out about another of the latter that peaked my interest, to say the least. I’ve been a fan of Chiral ever since his first full-length album, but this time his partners in crime are the US duo of Ah...

Part of the effectiveness and fun of discovering split releases is the fact that the listener may be familiar with one artist but not the other, but then subsequently become a new fan of that other band.  Today’s offering was brought to my attention having been a huge fan of Chiral but knowing nothing of Ah Ciliz.

Hypnotic Dirge and Throats Production presents the release an intense nature-themed atmo...
