The discovery of Shadowgazer for us is indeed a heartfelt surprise. This young but no less ambitious fresh blood caught us immediately with their promo single earlier this year with their brilliant execution of everything that Japanese Blackgaze/Post Black Metal is known for: as if a meshwork of kaleidoscopic vignettes full of subtle yet multi-faceted emotions freely shines through the sparkling dew of summer morning. Shadowgazer's music thus travelling across margins of genres that within and outside the realm of shoegaze/blackgaze, even though there's nothing "innovative" about their approach, Shadowgazer's debut ep still serves as an exceptional offering that follows the path of predecessors like Heaven In Her Arms and 明日の叙景 (Asunojokei).
Pest Productions will release their debut ep “Blackgaze Cinema" as Digipack CD formats and limited to 300 copies, highly recommanded!

The year I found love for the first time in a long time, Unreqvited releases this beauty. This record captures all the conflicting emotions of pain, confusion, joy, gratitude which are connected with leaving the past and devoting your soul to someone pure.
At first listen, I wasn't sure how I felt about it because of the previous more darker tones I fell in love with, but the stunning artwork made me try once more and thats how I fell in love for the second time this year! <3 childofbodom97
