Koboloris remasters arriving soon!

Since it's release in 2012, Koboloris's self titled debut EP has consistently been our most downloaded digital albums. Despite not having completed a new album since, support for the 2-man black metal band has not trickled to a halt, defying the laws of today's oversaturated world of digital music marketing, where an in-your-face promo plan is often required just to get any listens at all. So it strikes me, something musically must have really gone right, surely this band still has places to go, grand and grim new castles to build on the foundations of  a debut that refuses to die.

So, in order to deliver a tasty new morsel of audio delight to Koboloris fans, we are putting out a remastered edition of the debut EP!

When we recorded and produced the original back in 2012 (yes, that long ago!) production values were tight, equipment basic and experience somewhat lacking - we still made a worthy attempt, but some musical elements may have been lost in the muddy mixing and the hammer-smashed approach to mastering that went ahead. Now it is our chance to bring you the record as it should have been produced.

More details will be announced soon, with a digital release expected around the end of Summer 2016.

New artist: Meister

Its not every day that I have the pleasure of announcing a new band, but today is one of those days!

Meister is an Industrial metal band from York, England. Expect uncompromisingly heavy riffs, baritone vocals, lyrics like the darkest gothic poetry you could ever hope to stumble across, all over a backdrop of synth orchestras and cold mechanical beats. Did we mention a member of Miseria Visage is involved?!

There is no doubt that Meister marks a departure for Three Rooks, our first foot in the door with electronic music, yet at the same time there are undeniably strong metal elements to their sound.
You can keep up with the exploits of these electro-metal deviants on the Meister facebook page.

So what comes next? Meister are just about to start recording their first EP, which we will be bringing to your ears as soon as its hot from the studio! After that, its time to go on the hunt for live- perfomance opportunities, likely kicking off with club shows in their native UK, naturally we will keep you updated with all things Meister-related from now on!

Three Rooks are flying the nest..

Signs are that our long hibernation could be coming to an end. We are now committed to making 2016 the year that we once again have the chance to sort things out and get back to doing what we do best - bringing new dark and heavy music to your ears. 

Our new mission is to broaden the scope of our collective with new projects and new genres, spreading our wings into Industrial, Gothic and Dark Electronic territory. 

Its also been too long since we've taken on some serious studio projects. The audio production arm of Three Rooks is back, currently working hard to produce music with a fantastic new band that we will unveil soon, of course it will come as no surprise that an ex. member of Miseria Visage is involved.

However, we also want to open up the studio to other bands and projects too! It is through collaboration and combining resources as well as talent, that underground artists can best flourish and prove their artistic worth.

Stay with us - great things will be happening soon.

May We Never Forget Her Face..

Good News! 

 A new album from Mourning Hours is on its way. 'May We Never Forget Her Face' will be the second album-length creation by this project and already shows signs of raising the quality bar higher than ever before. 

One of the things I like most about this project is the determination to carry on releasing lengthy releases and to push forward despite the difficulties faced by all non-mainstream artists, it should be an inspiration to all bands.

Here is the latest teaser video featuring the album track 'Fallen Leaves'..

I hope you will join me in looking forward to hearing the finished product!

We're back .. and we're bringing a new album with us!

Once again, Three Rooks has stirred from it's death-like slumber, and once again our musicians have been very busy behind the scenes, crafting something new and intriguing.

Back in August 2012, the project known as Mourning Hours, impressed us with the debut track
'Us & Despair', followed in September by the first self-produced full length 'A Journey From Here To Nothingness' which we released digitally.

Now, Mourning Hours is on the verge of bringing us a second full-length album, entitled 'Selfless Within'.
With recording and final mixing of the album complete, we will be handling the mastering in-house, bringing you both a digital and CDR version of Mourning Hour's most ambitious musical work yet. Check out this clip of  'Hatefornication', and you will get a taste of the new direction in which this project has evolved ..
