Formed in 2007, Frigoris have released 4 full length albums, cementing their mastery of the Atmospheric/Pagan Black Metal genre. Their second album, "Wind", can be seen as the turning point in their career, marking a bit of a stylistic shift from their early days and bringing them the attention they very much deserve.

PRE-ORDERS: Omination - NGR

January 8, 2021
Today, we launch pre-orders for the release of Omination's "NGR".

An absolute mammoth of a record, “NGR” (The New Golgotha Repvbliq) contains over an hour of some of the most encapsulating and ominous funeral doom metal to come out in quite some time. Combining abrasive and dissonant riffs with a shroud of atmospheric and monumental church organ and choirs, the instrumental aspect of this record is already massive, which is only enhanced by Fedor’s forceful growls, belted with conviction...
