Otherworldly female vocals from extraordinary performers have always been the trademark of world-famous choir ensemble The Mystery Of The Bulgarian Voices (formerly known as "Les Mystères Des Voix Bulgares"). After an almost 20-year hiatus due to the death of producer Marcel Cellier, the choir released its critically acclaimed comeback BooCheeMish in 2018 together with esteemed guest vocalist Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance), combining magnificent vocals from various stylistic backgrounds and traditional Bulgarian instruments with modern elements like beatboxing. The ensemble and its host of guests embarked on a successful tour in 2018 and 2019, performing in renowned concert venues such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, The Netherlands or L'Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, Belgium.
Summer 2020 sees a continuation of the choir's live activities in Europe, and the new 7-track EP Shandai Ya / Stanka presents the strongest songs from "BooCheeMish" in even more refined versions alongside two exclusive tracks - an impressive live rendition of Gerrard's solo composition 'Rite Of Passage' from a concert in Warsaw, Poland and 'Zaidi Sluntse', a collaboration between the choir and beatbox world champion SkilleR, marrying vocal skills that could not be more contrastive to great effect.
Shandai Ya / Stanka comes out as Digipak CD and vinyl (black/ ltd. green).

Perchta: 'Åtem' - official video clip
watch the official video to first single 'Åtem':

Tyrolean atmospheric black metal entity Perchta now on Prophecy Productions | first album on April 10th

Taking its name from a pagan goddess revered among the people in the Upper German and Austrian Alps, Perchta from Tyrol, Austria, were founded in 2015 and channel the deity's essence to keep alive regional traditions that have been trivialized over time to fit modern conveniences.
Known to walk among men from Christmas to Epiphany and thus symbolizing a time of transition, Perchta has many faces and guises, at once radiant beauty and wrinkled, old hag, both unforgiving punisher and nourishing guardian, haunting destroyer as well as rewarding creator. "Ufång," the project's first record, is a multi-faceted concept album about the four elements, entirely intoned in local vernacular before a backdrop of tremolo guitars and ritualistic folk passages. Perchta will make her live debut at Dark Easter Metal Meeting at Backstage in Munich, Germany, in early April. "Ufång" is released as Digipak CD, LP and 2CD artbook (48 pages, 18x18cm) on April 10th with all lyrics, additional texts about the Perchta lore, poetry and photo material as well as two bonus tracks. The first single 'Åtem' is available as of now on all digital platforms.
