Vemod – The Deepening – Album Review

Artist: Vemod Album Title: The Deepening Label: Prophecy Productions Date of Release: 19 January 2024 It has taken a decade for this album to see the light of day but there’s an argument to suggest that time has little meaning in the town of Namsos, Norway.

Nochnoy Dozor – Nochnoy Dozor – EP Review

Artist: Nochnoy Dozor Album Title: Nochnoy Dozor Label: Prophecy Productions Date of Release: 26 October 2018 With a name like this, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Nochnoy Dozor hailed from somewhere in Russia or the Baltic.
