Darker Color Bright (ADCB) recently released a music video for the track "Missing You." The video, which was edited by Akila Ingvoldstad, adds something special to the track, as the camera work and editing really create a sense of loneliness. "Missing You" is currently available for download now on iTunes. Watch A Darker Color Bright's "Missing You" Music Video Below:

Germany’s leading gothic metal act Crematory are set celebrate their 25thAnniversary with the release of their hugely impressive thirteenth studio album, ‘Monument’, as a DigiPak CD, double gatefold white vinyl LP (with CD in paper sleeve) and download, on Steamhammer / SPV, on April 15th.
‘Monument’ marks an unmistakable return to metallic toughness for Crematory, following the Mannheim band’s excursion into EBM tinged territory on 2014’s predecessor, ‘Antiserum’. ‘Monument’, packed with brute guitar riffs and hard-as-nails drum grooves, replete with sinister keyboard hooks and the group’s typical trademark mix of growls and clear vocals – some in English, some in German – is a rousing, resounding accomplishment.
Before Crematory began working on ‘Monument’ in Spring 2015, the band had to first find a replacement for Matthias Hechler, their clear voiced guitarist, who left the band on amicable terms after 17 years in the line-up. Making a virtue out of necessity, Crematory enlisted not one but two successors; Tosse Basler (Scapegoat, Avalanche) joined the fold as rhythm guitarist and clear vocalist, along with Rolf Munkes, Crematory’s new lead guitarist. “Tosse and Rolf have brought a breath of fresh air to the band, they’ve really inspired us with their powerful style and phat guitar sounds,” rejoices drummer Markus Jüllich, who composed the songs once again with producer Kristian ‘Kohle’ Bonifer, before co-producing ‘Monument’ at the Kohlekeller Studio.
The result is a gothic metal masterpiece, positively bursting with energy and sparkling with rekindled creativity. Strident album opener ‘Misunderstood’, for which a video has already been filmed, is probably the most metallic number of Crematory’s career to date. The ballad ‘Save Me’, however, which Jüllich/Bonifer wrote prior to the formation of the new line-up, presents a stark contrast; “As far as I’m concerned, this number has an orchestral flair”, Jüllich reckons; “It suits Tosse and his timbre perfectly.”
A major milestone in Crematory’s career, the new album more than lives up to its symbolic title with massive justification; each and every one of the twelve impressive songs contained is undoubtedly a real monument to the Crematory’s palpable creative powers. ‘Monument’ will indubitably win Crematory, who have already been confirmed for the Bang Your Head Festival in Balingen, the Wave-Gothic-Meeting in Leipzig, and the Metalfest in Pilsen, a whole host of new fans once unleashed on April 15th.

H.P. LOVECRAFT Hallowe'en In A Suburb And Others EP Confirmed For April Release Through Cadabra Records
Cadabra Records presents H. P. LOVECRAFT's Hallowe'en In A Suburb And Others, as a limited edition 7" title, set for release this April as part of the label's ongoing series in homage to the author.
The poem Hallowe'en In A Suburb is a classic, staple title by H. P. LOVECRAFT, and has been frequently reprinted over the years since its initial publication in 1926. Here, the rhyme is joined by several other tales including The Cats, The Garden, Festival, Astrophobos, Despair, and The Messenger.
As with the other titles in the ongoing Cadabra series, these seven poems are here read by Andrew Leman, who is known as a co-founder of the H. P. LOVECRAFT Historical Society, as well as a professional actor with years of stage, screen, and audio performances including The Call of Cthulhu, The Whisperer in Darkness, and Dark Adventure Radio Theatre. Leman's voice captures the terror, dread, suspense and madness that permeates LOVECRAFT's writing, and is here appropriately paired with sound by Josh Coy of Teratoma Sound Lab, the release bound in cover artwork by Sam Heimer.
Spoken arts label, Cadabra Records, will release Hallowe'en In A Suburb And Others on April 29th as a limited 7" title, which is currently being pressed on clear vinyl, in an edition of 150 copies. The cover will be hand-screened in silver ink on a fold-over cover, printed on French paper, and includes an insert. Preorders will be posted on March 24th.
Cadabra Records' ongoing H. P. LOVECRAFT series recently began with the release of the maiden title in the series, The Hound & The Music Of Erich Zann, released onLP in February. Upon its release, the label announced New York-based dark ambient/industrial outfit Theologian has been chosen as the label's "house band" for all upcoming titles, including the absolutely terrifying, The Lurking Fear, the next title in the series, to be followed by Pickman's Model and other titles soon to be announced.
