Wheels of Mercury Snarling Manilla Road-esque vocals drenched in reverb? Spacey production with a huge dose of rawness? Yes to both of those! I can't wait to see where these guys go next. SUPPORT CANADIAN METAL! Favorite track: Heaven's Gate.
Elric of Melniboné

Elric of Melniboné Gives this album some multiple spins and it'll grow on you more and more. For me te singer's voice reminds me a little of the singer of the doomband The Wizar'd. And just like The Wizar'd, Kontact also has that same spark of originality that metal bands these days need to stand out from the crowd. Recommended! Favorite track: Ancient Malice.

The essence of our worldly vessels, imaginary. Everlasting life is the gift for the antiquary. Methodologies of the mystic—hereditary power in the mind of receptive believers in the ancient and occult, the eternal. The rituals and rites performed at night by the faithful imbue a certain clarity of sight and a purpose: The right to possess insights into questions proposed by the first ones to look up in fear and awe at the sky. Jet black window into the beyond. An all-engulfing will to know the secrets of the stars. To pull back the devil’s mask and look in his eye. We’ll never solve the riddle of death if we never try. With these holy lines we enchant the land, and draw our spirits’ pathways in the sand. And by our blood, we purify, to join our brethren in the sky. Tied to a tree in the heart of the forest, bride you will be to the Lord of the Harvest. Knife cuts your throat, make you bleed into the chalice. I watch you die to release ancient malice. Eat of the flesh to possess knowledge of the ones before us and rejoice in the blood of the young to restore us. Can’t you see your mind is a prison, won’t you break the chains? In darkness you will find unholy wisdom. JOIN THE ORDER OF THE PROFANE

Honour and greed, carrying me, across the sea to the isle of shimmering jade. Soon I will be daring and free, my enemy never suspecting barbarian raid. Silently I step upon the shore before him. I will earn my name forever more, in war: CONAN Metal and fire, cunning and speed. Hacking and slashing through ruins of marvellous age. Into the chamber, I feel no fear. My spirit is calm though my body is burning with rage. I cannot believe the thing I see before me. Lo, I know it was my destiny to meet the devil in iron. Bones of metal, flesh of steel, titan evil, swords are feeble. Warrior. Traveller. Killer and conqueror. Messenger. Messiah. To rid the earth of the devil in iron.

The Luciferians, rejected from the kingdom, have kept society in darkness. You, the chosen few, become more than human, the power and the glory’s ours to reach forthe stars. You are going away... Your mind will survive the doomsday... Another level awaits... When your human shell annhiliates. Heaven’s Gate The truth is breaking through, the weeds have taken over, and the earth become a carcass. We, the devotees, have the technology to leave our consciousness behind and take to the sky. We’re all waiting for you... There’s only one thing left to do... You will feel no pain... When the heavens open up and call your name. Congregate and evacuate to reconciliate with the cosmos Consecrate and asphyxiate, how can you hesitate when you’re oh so close to heaven’s gate? Come with us, this world is done with us, you only need to trust in your salvation. Recognize the saviour in disguise and open up your arms to your oblivion.

Into the temple, cursed by the pharaoh’s crumbling hand. A craven idol in the valley of the sand. Pillage for prosperity on foreign soil. Taking all that you can find, reaping the spoils. But there’s an omen in the red sky overhead, an ancient loathing over the ground where millions bled. Seeking to ascend to the city of the pyramid but you’re condemned to the dimension of the legion of the living dead. Here the spirits of the dead are crying out. There is no escaping the desert’s mouth. Fall to your knees and beg for mercy. The jackals hear your pleas, and will be grateful for the feast. Searching for your splendour in the ruins of the distant past but in the end, you can’t outrun the merciless sun when destiny’s die is cast. Evil awakens, your life is forsaken, you’ve forfeit your right to a spirit tonight they will come for their prize, and figures will rise, and suck out your soul through your eyes they control a dimension where people are taken and made into slaves to erect their cathedrals to the godhead. In the city of the pyramid.

about

Canada's newest doomsday cult, KONTACT, blast off with 5 tracks of HEAVY METAL FROM BEYOND. As if frozen in the distant past and thawed in the distant future, their debut release “First Contact” fuzes 80s Priest with 90s Voivod into science-fiction epics that sound both strange and ancient, fresh but familiar. Featuring members of BLACKRAT and TRAVELER.
