Rough Man’s Snivel: New single “Waiting for Thoth’s Final Verdict” now available

Russian post-metal collective Rough Man’s Snivel have just released a new single entitled “Waiting for Thoth’s Final Verdict”, a 10-minute journey about the Egyptian kingdom of the dead, Duat. The track focuses on the souls of the dead as they fearfully await the final judgment of Thoth, weighing their hearts with a feather. The lyrics voiced their horror at the feeling of close reckoning and appreciation of their own lives. Compositionally, the track is divided into two parts – a more conventional introduction and development, and an almost fully instrumental outro, which paints a musical picture of the arrival of a god and the beginning of judgment.

The track is taken off from the band’s upcoming album “Deadman”, which explores the representation of death by different cultures and literary writers. The storyline of the album is based on the journey of a deceased soul through the afterlife of various religious denominations – from the Scandinavian Hel to the Egyptian Duat. The main idea behind the album is to convey the atmosphere of these worlds musically and to guide the listener through them.

Rough Man’s Snivel deliver a mixture of Post-Metal, Black Metal, Sludge and Progressive Metal, with some elements from folk and ambient music.

Dorothy Polonium released their second full-length album Psychoccult

More Kate Bush than Slayer, more Slayer than Black Sabbath, powerful female leads collide with the rough edges of 90’s grunge on Dorothy Polonium’s second full length. Psychoccult is an anthology of the sounds and visions beyond our eyelids, a pilgrimage to the deep trenches of our mind, where light and shadow clash in an endless imbalance.

Formed in Jyväskylä, Finland in 2014, Dorothy Polonium describe their twisted and dark take on modern rock as “metalloid igneous rock”. The female-fronted fresh quartet have toured extensively both home and abroad. Their rough and barely controlled sound combines strong melodies, enchanting vocals, catchy refrains and gloomy lyrics.

Released in the end of the year 2017, their full-length debut “Tales by the Pyre” aroused fear and curiosity both domestically and abroad and even snatched a mention among the top albums of the year. (30.12.2018, Kaaoszine).

Dorothy Polonium released their second full length album, titled “Psychoccult” on September 1st 2020. This time Dorothy’s sound has developed like fine wine and the second album takes the listener even deeper into the darkness.

Dorothy Polonium:
V – Suvi Uura
G – Markus Taipale
B – Arto Kettunen
D – Ensio Hintikka

Neofolk outfit SEA WOLVES OF THE ATLANTIC release new album ANTIFASCIST NEOFOLK

The album is 11 tracks and 45 minutes of jangly clean guitars, driving bass, and maudlin vocals. The album sees expanded creativity from the debut EP with influences not only from neofolk but also post punk, goth rock, and post black metal.

“It’s a shame it’s taken five years to get here” says frontman Sea Wolf. “Better late than never, right? The world is a very different place here in 2020 compared to 2015. In 2015, fascists still hid in their bedrooms and basements, but here in 2020 they are literally out on the streets killing people. It’s a crazy world we live in – I’m hoping these songs provide some respite from all the madness swirling around this poor dying Earth.”

Antifascist Neofolk is available now as a download from seawolvesoftheatlantic.bandcamp.com. The album is also available to be streamed from Spotify, Tidal, Google Play, and many other streaming networks.

Tracklisting:

01) Grey Depths
02) Sea Wolves of the Atlantic
