Lares - Towards Nothingness

Lares – Towards Nothingness (album)

Release date: 26th June 2020||Genre: black/doom metal||Label: Argonauta Records Thinks kick off pretty in Towards Nothingness, the new album from Berlin’s Lares, before we descend into a kind of blackened psyche-doom.

Molasses Barge – A Grayer Dawn (album)

Release date: 10th April 2020 ||Genre: Doom||Label: Argonauta Records I mean, the name is very effective in telling you what to expect from Molasses Barge.
