NONE - Interdimensional War Poetry
Release Date: June 4
The upcoming latest release from ambient metal band NONE looks to be a logical progression of the sound they started developing in 2017. With this release, the production has decidedly improved and the band leans heavily into neo-folk influences while mysteriously holding on to its metal edge with growling vocals and drums that go from slow and grinding to suddenly rapid fire. All this while the guitar trash along, albeit acoustically. Currently available for pre-order with one track available for listening.
gnaarf - Gray Lines and Black Signs
Release Date: June 18
This upcoming release from Austrian artist gnaarf on Xtelyon Records is a relaxing jazz influenced soirée and a slightly confusing abstract mess at the same time. Dark backgrounds and harsh electronics combine with jazzy improvisations played on guitars, pianos, saxophones and other instruments to create a surreal experience. An experience that is still jazzy enough to drink a gin and tonic to while also strange enough to keep you guessing. Currently available for pre-order with four tracks available for listening.
Deludium Skies -Destination Desolation
Release Date: June 3
Another upcoming release from Xtelyon Records, Deludium Skies is a three-piece improvisational act that seems to be heavily guitar driven with some excellent guest spots that include saxophone and trumpet. This album delves heavily into noise rock influences with distorted, grinding guitar and equally hard hitting drums. Even in softer moments with the saxophone, the guitar is grinding along in the background while the saxophone wails out its piece. Currently available for pre-order with four tracks available for listening.
Subexotic Records - Solstice ‘21
Release Date: June 21
This upcoming compilation promises to be quite a wonderful showcase of the talent on Subexotic Records roster. You can expect to see contributions from familiar names such as Simon Klee, Dogs versus Shadows, Letters from Mouse, and Onepointtwo. The tracks range from downtempo electronic with chill beats to wild abstract pieces and even a bit of ambient drone thrown in for good measure. There is currently no pre-order available but you can follow Subexotic Records on Bandcamp to be notified of when the album is released.
Night Sky Pulse - These Possible Lives
Release Date: June 11
A wonderful upcoming release on See Blue Audio from John Sellekaers‘ latest project, Night Sky Pulse. This album promises to be a cinematic journey with minimal rhythms, thick atmospheric pads an sparse melodies that create a sense of wonder. Listening to the available tracks gives a feeling of looking at the stars with a sense of amazement and curiosity. Currently available for pre-order with two tracks available for listening.
Stephan Moore - STAGE
Release Date: June 25
For this upcoming release from Stephan Moore, do not let the somewhat colorful cover art fool you. The tracks on this album are of the dark and experimental variety, but are still colorful in their own noisy way. The entire album is created on one instrument that has been appropriately named the “Wall of Metals” and the sonic textures derived from this creation are nothing short of amazing, if not also unsettling. Currently available for pre-order with two tracks available for listening.
