PRE-ORDER: a noend of mine - Sanctuaires

February 12, 2021
Today, we launch pre-orders for the second album from a noend of mine, entitled "Sanctuaires"




a noend of mine (anom) is a project by Les Vynogradov (Vin de Mia Trix, Kauan) based in Kyiv, Ukraine. The genre of anom can be loosely described as melancholic post-prog. 

Sanctuaires marks a departure from the mellow proggy vignettes found on anom’s debut, The Serenity’s Eve, in favor of a slower, darker, more cinematic approach. Drawing inspiration from sources as varied as Bark ...

SONG PREMIERE: a noend of mine - Des chemins crépusculaires (I-III)

February 4, 2021
For something a little bit different today, we have partnered with Invisible Oranges to premiere the opening three tracks (as one stylistic whole) from the forthcoming "a noend of mine" record "Sanctuaires".



"Carrying echoes of the early-1990s English experimental rock scene, the delicate but electronics-heavy pulsations found on upcoming album Sanctuaires redefines this project. Reflecting memories of the specific albums which defined the use of then-new genre tag "post-rock," Sanctuaires' so...

February 4, 2021
(Originally posted Friday January 29)

Another video/track from the forthcoming Omination album "NGR" has surfaced, this time for the track "Apocalyptic Ignis Fatuus", the second track on the album.



Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.

Kill the tamed for the rebirth.
Know the rules of this world, become masters of these rules to break ...

January 26, 2021

After the releases of the "Requiem" and "Desolation" full-length albums in 2020, Nordicwinter returns with "Sorrow" this spring, marking its third release in two years and continuing a very prolific period for the project.
