Since 2016, ALKYMIST has trod its own trail and challenged the preconceptions of heavy music, with a dynamic, textured and progressive doom metal. Their latest album ‘Sanctuary’ (2020) embraces all the massive characteristics of doom metal alongside the adventurous spirit of classical music and 70’s progressive rock inhabited in the band’s distinct musical amalgam. ALKYMISTs musical approach is free from trivialities and limitations, resulting in a modern interpretation of doom metal with intensive layers of instrumentation, melodic compositional progression and a captivating lyrical universe.
LATE NIGHT VENTURE
“There is not much light in ‘Subcosmos’, but we have picked up the pieces and assembled a rough, dark mosaic from our experience. ‘Subcosmos’ is the world we create subconsciously. The doom we have let in ourselves.”
The Copenhagen based post-metal band LATE NIGHT VENTURE has travelled a long way, both as individuals and as a unit. From birth to adolescence in the countryside and Danish suburbs to grown-up life in Copenhagen, the formation of the band in 2006 and to their latest record ‘Subcosmos’ in 2019. The band released their self titled debut album back in 2006 and after a series of personnel changes, the current line-up assumed form and released ‘Pioneers of Spaceflight’ (2012) followed by ‘Tychonians’ (2015). These two albums took their cue from shoegaze and post-rock unfolding narratives of the universe, man’s encounter with it and the questions of both scientific and existential observance emerging from such contemplation. The latest album ‘Subcosmos’ is the third and last part in this trilogy, and where the two previous records take an observing standpoint, this record is a highly personal work. Also, the music has shifted its focus as LATE NIGHT VENTURE has moved towards a heavier post-metallic sound and expression defined by legends such as Neurosis and Isis, which the band develops by the force of their melodic, poetic and local traits that have continously characterized their music.
