manlietto A fantastic blend of Berlin school and dungeon synth, a marvelous tape, and a rich booklet with the background references for the songs. If there will be another printing, make sure you grab one! Favorite track: In the Barents Sea.


After the conclusion of the trilogy about Zotique's cycle by Clark Ashton Smith, DOOM CATACOMB, the bard of unspeakable horrors, is back with a... chilling album!

"Polar" declines the decadent and nihilistic poetics expressed in the previous albums in a new and surprising direction. The landscapes of death and desolation that DOOM CATACOMB has accustomed us take on the appearance of endless icy expanses: the impenetrable polar regions, where every glimmer of life is annihilated by the frost.

The DOOM CATACOMB's polar-synth drives us to the ends of the world, in the most inhospitable regions of the earth, retracing tragic polar explorations, telling us the stories of those men who wanted to challenge the horrors of a hostile and unknown kingdom and paid with their lives.


The first side tells us about the deadly exploration of the Arctic island of Novaya Zemlya in the sixteenth century; on the second side we change hemisphere and epoch: we are in the twentieth century, in Antarctica; object of research is Bouvet isle, one of the most inaccessible and remote islands on Earth.

The 28-page booklet attached to the cassette will accompany you in the exploration of these desolate places.
