Tableau Mort

UK extreme metal outfit Tableau Mort have released a lyric video for their newest single “Candle In The Darkness” taken from their forthcoming album Visio In Somniis available May 6th, 2022 via Cult Of Parthenope. “Candle In The Darkness” features Italian opera singer Laura Delogu and was mixed and mastered by Neil Haynes at Parlour Studios (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, Amorphis). The artwork was crafted by Alex Shadrin at Nether Temple Design who collaborated with the band on all their previous releases.


After At The Bottom Of The Sea and High Mountain, Achachak returns from the journey and brings us their third studio album Planet Hashish.

It has been hypothesized that the planet Hash was formed by the collision of a planetoid with the planet Earth billions of years ago.” says the band and explains how the concept album came more as a logical sequence of events that we’re all in.

So far the fiercest, most direct and most challenging album we could make!

With the album the band also presents a video for the song “Breathe” with Robert Šostar in the lead role. The song is a depiction of the fear of losing your own ground under your own feet. The album is available to buy and stream now.

No need to search any further Beardos! Better Times are here to stay! You know we wouldn’t have it any other way. Buckle up and strap it down because Crobot is comin’ back to town. And with smiles on our faces, we’ve got all the right grooves that hit in all the right places. So, grab your junk – food that is – and tune into this special sneak preview of the studio, kids! See you out there this Spring for some ass shakin, ear smackin’ thangs! Ca-caaaaawwwww!
