„ESOTERIC“ – cult name from UK, mental yet cosmic funeral doom metal, since July 1992, after the gathering of five individuals, inspired to create dark, innovative music that was evocative too and expressive of the contents of their psyche. The lyrics and music are reflections and transpositions of their thoughts, philosophies, emotions and experiences. The music captures the essence of the word “esoteric“. For more than twenty years Esoteric have been pushing the limits of sonic intensity. From the mind-bending darkness of their 90’s double albums ‘Epistemological Despondency’ and the ‘Pernicious Enigma’, to the expansive epics found on their recent opuses ‘The Maniacal Vale’ and ‘Paragon of Dissonance’, they have never compromised their initial aim – to unleash aural mayhem on unsuspecting listeners.

„ISOLE“is an epic doom metal band from Sweden. Formed in 1990 under the name Forlorn, the band released several demos before changing their name to „Isole“ in 2003 in order to avoid confusion with other bands named Forlorn.

Crister Olsson stated in an interview that the story of Silent Ruins will be continued on a future album, possibly two future albums, one of which might not be Isole’s next studio album.
