Bianchi, Maurizio -- "Akoustikoriginem" -- CD-R -- €7
2009 Lona Records, locd55r, (ltd. 150)
Improvisation is the practice of making and creating in the moment and in response to the stimulus of one's immediate environment. Musical improvisation is the spontaneous creative process of making music while it is being performed. It's like speaking or having a conversation as opposed to reciting a written text. "Akoustikoriginem" is a marginal and exhausted resource for experimental diffusion of uncompromised acoustic sounds from the convergent beginnings... Maurizio Bianchi prevalently uses an expiatory acoustic guitar, maltreated with cortical fingers. Dedicated to Jubal, the tamer of the improvised acoustic sounds. [label info]

Bianchi, Maurizio -- "March-Ex" -- CD-R -- €7
2009 Lona Records, locd62r, (ltd. 150)
March-Ex (based on the book of Genesis, chapter 31, verse 35). "To obtain the menarchal attention of creative limits in a special synthetic subject, electro-hematic photocompositions scratched to the declivity as always different to obtain a dysmenorrheic catalyst. It was planned for soft shapes, extreme perfection, hematopoietic spirituality, however that was a simple labial menometrorrhagia. The tendinous tissue adapted the metabolism of coagulative effects, on the pestilential determination to guarantee the menorrhagic splendor among impressive recordings. Spurring the processional metrorrhagia of reformable background and concrete oligomenorrhea; between the infinite paths, our hypomenorrhagic point of view is inevitably furnished in a genuine horrors of our amenorrhagic time, mysterious of lightning along with the sanguinolent and peripheral activities. The polymenorrheic reputation or some excursions to a consequent capillarisation of hematogenous resistance. To modify the sedentary escape. This is the hemostatic defrosting of "March-ex"."` This work is not dedicated to the Dr. Hermann Stieve (22-5-1886 / 6-9-1952). [label info]

Bianchi, Maurizio -- "Verfall" -- CD-R -- €7
2010 Lona Records, locd66r, (ltd. 150)
Dedicated to the "entartete" musicians who were persecuted for their creativity between the 1937 and the 1945. "An intimistic work, in which the disintegration and declension of multicellular particles meet damaged piano affections. Ruinous and protonic waves culminate in a declining sonorous decay, which is the neurotic aim of the falling off author, at his regimental climax." (M.B. - March 2010). Degenerative work, played at a degrading piano on the 17th August 2009, in a decadent afternoon. [label info]

Bleiburg -- "Till The Last Night" -- CD -- €10
2011 The Eastern Front, Front 030, (ltd. 1000)

Brandal, Andreas -- "Little Three" -- 3"CD-R -- €6

Communism –- "Laughing Gas" -- CD -- €14
2005 Misteriya Zvuka, MZ 271-2
Experimental / noise / rock from late 80-s Soviet Siberian underground - feat. members of Grazhdanskaya Oborona. "From the whole vast discography of COMMUNISM the album "Laughing Gas" (1989) is perhaps the most hard to listen to. After colourful idiotism of "On Soviet Speed" and clearly structured conceptualism of "Suleiman Stalskiy", "Laughing Gas" impresses first of all with lashings of noises and absolutely unstoppable lyrics. The album is completely immersed in the magic environment of free ad-lib or as Egor Letov said 'very strange excursions into consciousness'"... [Maxim Semelyak]

Communism –- "Satanism" -- CD -- €32
2007 Misteriya Zvuka, MZ 276-2
Experimental / noise / rock from late 80-s Soviet Siberian underground - feat. members of Grazhdanskaya Oborona. "The 8th album named "Satanism" is the black hole in the landscape of COMMUNISM. Even the most dedicated fans of Egor Letov & Co. used to tell they couldn't listen to this more than once. Meanwhile "Satanism" is definitely one of the most important exuses of COMMUNISM as musical project - here you won't find recitations by Kuzma, no obvious concept, no easy-to-catch expressions, only harsh full scale sound experience, quite radical for the USSR in 1989. Of course both COMMUNIZM and GRAZHDANSKAYA OBORONA have always used the elements of noise, ritual rhythms and shamanic kind of vocals. But only "Satanism" utilizes all these techniques only to fill all the space of this lengthy album - the result is pure season in hell with the elements of miner strikes in Kuzbass... "Satanism" is perhaps the only work of Soviet musicians which could be easily placed in one row with the odious records of British industrial musicians, I mean first of all NURSE WITH WOUND and CURRENT 93 (their noisier side). In fact this record had something irrevocable in it. "Satanism" with its rumbling numbness kind of opened some door, behind which everything was ultimately funny and scary at the same time." [Maxim Semelyak]

Courtis, Alan -- "ACR" -- 3"CD-R -- €6
2010 Lona Records, locd68r
"A Capella Rainbow" is an experimental piece made with voice as only sound source recorded at the artist's own Studios in Buenos Aires. In this case the recordings were so heavily processed that it's hard to recognize traces of human voice. Vocal Drone? Sci-fi Spoken Word? Detuned Human Bioacoustics? Electrified Singing? It's difficult to say, however it's an intense piece to be filed probably in between "Sound of Hydrangea" and "Tape Works". [label info]

Epsilon Eridani -- "Disturbance" -- CD-R -- €7
2010 Essentia Mundi, EM015, (ltd. 100)

This is the first CD release of Epsilon Eridani after a few mp3 releases to various net labels... Originating from Mexico City, Juan Pablo Valle, 30, produces both ambient and dark ambient. He samples sounds from everything and enjoys modifying them by pitching or time stretching, adding some bright or dark melodies to his compositions. [label info]

Exit Project & Sergey Letov -- "Live At Golden Mask" -- CD -- €10
2011 Soyuz, SZCD 7247-11
Avant-garde Jazz / Rock. In March 2007 EXIT Project played one of the best (or maybe actually best) gigs in they history. The gig happened as a part of the musical program of Goldenmask Club at the "Golden Mask" theatre festival. A wonderful saxophonist Sergey Letov took part in the concert. Big concert hall, lots of benevolent visitors, great sound - what else one needs for a perfect show? And the show was great indeed! And now, after 4 years, the recording of this gig comes out on a CD "Live at Golden Mask" - and now everyone can feel the atmosphere of that wonderful night. [press-release]

Fahl -- "The Paths To Emptiness" -- CD -- €10
2010 The Eastern Front, Front 027, (ltd. 1000)
Fahl is much more complicated and interesting than many many albums in "dark ambient" style (if we keep calling a variety of musical creations this way). It tells a story. Vivid, exciting, emotions driven story about "gateways to the occult and hidden forces of the inner self" - thus musician themeselves described the idea. I would just add that this music is about what rests deep inside of human mind and soul and about what we hardly think and talk in daily fusiness. [label info]

Five Elements Music & Denis Shapovalov -- "Steel Glares and Night Shadows" -- CD -- €10
2011 Observatoire, obs * 029 cd, (ltd. 350)
Record of this disc has been made during 2010,2011. The material of Moscow region project Five Elements Music is used as a basis. The record was made at night in different industrial areas of town. In this collaboration F.E.M. goes ahead with its field recordings line. Denis Shapovalov (Adriva) finds his sound recovery from natural materials – metal, glass, wood… One cannot find synth’s in this disc, however, naturalistic sticky pseudo-analog sound provides “authentic old school”. This effect is sustained by wave reverberations which run into massive drones. But it’s not the very essence of buzzing often cut by new structure waves and cycles conjoined with field recordings. [press-release]

Gnome & Spybey -- "Beyond Willie's Place" -- CD -- €10
2011 Tourette, tourette 020, (ltd. 600)
Mark Spybey's been having his way with rhythm and noise for so long that the motifs he's ascribed over the years are practically commonplace amongst the novice post-industrialist, or hell, the post-whatever. His is a sound that summons any number of nocturnal beasties from the ether. Throughout the last 25-plus years, he's plied his trade and remarkable sonic mojo both solo and in the company of many a forward-thinking electronic engineer. His collaborators include cEvin Key, Eric Pounder, Jean-Yves Theriault, Jarboe, Mick Harris, Martin Atkins, James Plotkin, Mark Nugent, Orphx, Phil Western, David Wright, Zev Asher, Darryl Neudorf, Ryan Moore, Niels van Hoorn, Kinder Atom, Evolution Control Committee, Chris Connelly and others. It's as Dead Voices On Air, however, that some of his most startling ideas emerge fully-realized and fully-armed; of course, to hear Spybey tell it, once art leaves the nest it's up to (once again) the recipient to assume the role of engager: "My work is created in isolation from external references. That is the ideal I strive for. Only in this way is it possible to allow the listener an opportunity to create their own understanding of the music, or, as the artist Joseph Beuys once said, 'One should resort to interpretation only in an emergency'.

Gorduw -- "XIX CIF. 30/15" -- CD-R -- €7
2011 Folvork'prod, Kfeytzez 106, (ltd. 100)
79 min. It starts with rough ragged noise based on a batch of overwound effects of looped samples, which grows like an avalanche raving and then comes down to the valleys of more spacious structures, after all degrading to monotonous noise jelly hanging like an impenetrable fog. Persistent schizophrenic collages of mind-corroding voices, a short break and then again millstones start their work, grinding the common sense.

2011 Radiodrone Records, RD-02, (ltd. 100)
New album by Oleg Hurvatov (Interior Disposition, Lanceolaria Im Licht Der Laterne) presents this space ambient musician on the other part. There’s a totally unfamiliar, unexpected person. Anaesthesia Dolorosa Psychica is an exorcism dive into the depths of sorrowful heartlessness, which fetters the will to live. It is a proven attempt to find a way out of the maze of closed benumbed consciousness by sound magical opportunity. Psychoactive drone ambient transmits the chaotic flow of neurons and dark thought forms. It’s a last refuge into a infinite loneliness of a microcosm. The abyss calls to abyss. The abyss swallows up the abyss. Envelope from craft-parer with fullcolour print. [press-release]

iN sCissorS -- "Mnemosyne & The Structure Of Time" -- CD -- €10
2011 Zoharum, ZOHAR 021-2
"Mnemosyne & The Structure Of Time" is a translation of the scenes that preceded the Earth’s decline in “Orbis Terrarum Requiem” into the sounds of iNsCissorS’ “Cinematic Ambient” where Mnemosyne, the ancient Hellenic Titan goddess of memory and remembrance and the inventress of language and words orchestrates the sequence of events and guides you throughout the complex cluster of the structure of time downwards to her lake in Hades where initiates used to drink in order to remember and bear memories along their journey through life... iNsCissorS’ third full-length album is a new journey through places beyond the Earth’s surface composed and performed by Vincent Andelmoth but with the also greatly important feature and additional composing and arrangements of Jason Andelmoth... Angel W. Black features giving her own enchanting touch with her astonishing voice either when lamenting as a queen that passed to silence or when invoking Hecate from Hades! Finally, as in every album the artwork is an inseparable part of the concept of iNsCissorS. This time the images cloaking the music are designed by the well known photographer/image maker John Santerineross (www.santerineross.com) who gave life to the image of Mnemosyne in his own unique way capturing the atmosphere of the album through his camera and translating it to another work of art!

Inner Vision Laboratory -- "Future Chaos" -- CD -- €10
2011 Zoharum, IYHHH 004-2
Inspiration comes from various modern postmodern and futuristic art forms including sci-fi literature or films, minimalist and industrial underground music scene, amongst many other sources. The main such source of inspiration for 'Future Chaos' is today's ever - changing world. Wars, poverty, global economy in crisis, fossil fuels depleting more rapidly every year could put an end to the world as we know it in a snap. A sudden catastrophe could drive human kind away from its technological progress straight into dark and really volatile enviroment of the dark future and into the chaos embedded within it. Some years past the critical moment on planet earth humans begin to leave their isolated and scatterred enclaves to reconquer the desolate postapocalyptic landscapes. A world where ancient rituals and neoprimitivism spread over ruined remains of a reckless past. My work is an illustration of a world after a sudden collapse of humanity and its civilisation in during 21 st century. 'Future Chaos' is a dark ambient passage into landscapes of this world of tribal and postindustrial elements. [press-release]

Meelkop, Roel -- "Real Mass" -- 3"CD-R -- €6
2008 Lona Records, locd40r, (ltd. 100)
Roel Meelkop (1963) studied visual arts and art theory at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. During a post-graduate course at the same academy he decided to dedicate his work to sound and music. His musical activities date back to the early eighties when he started THU20, together with Jac van Bussel, Peter Duimelinks, Jos Smolders and Guido Doesborg. THU20 have released several tapes and CD's and performed regularly in Europe. The working method of THU20 included many discussions about how to compose and why. This period was crucial in forming his ideas and concepts about sound and how to organise it, but it was not until the mid nineties that he was able to fully realise these ideas. The purchase of a sampler and later a computer radically changed his possibilities of working with sound, offering infinitely more control and freedom. Since then he has worked steadily on a body of work, most of which was recieved enthusiastically in the small but dedicated world of sound art. His other activities include working with Kapotte Muziek and GOEM and organising sound events, mostly in Rotterdam. Aside from releases, Meelkop also creates site-specific sound installations and performance pieces in collaboration with other artists. [label info]

Meelkop, Roel & Takanobu Hoshino -- "Fukushima" -- CD -- €10
2011 Observatoire, obs * 030 cd, (ltd. 350)
It may sound preposterous, but this CD is the direct result of a catastrophy. When on March 11th of 2011 an earthquake was noticed in Japan, nobody could anticipate the destruction that would ensue in a large part of the country. The city of Fukushima had to endure te worst of all: it was first hit by an earthquake and then a tsunami. But with the breakdown of a nuclear plant in direct vicinity of the city, a nightmare came true. Not only did many people lose their homes, now the fear of contamination was as real as it could get. Up until now it is still unclear how many people will suffer the consequences of nuclear radiation. It is for the city of Fukushima and its inhabitants that this CD was concieved and produced, as a memorial to their struggle and a token of respect to their endurance. [press-release]

Owen, Ben -- "Birds and Water, 2 & 3" -- CD -- €9
2011 Observatoire, obs * 029 cd, (ltd. 350)
Birds and Water, 2 & 3 are four recordings from May 05, 2010 made while on residency with The Experimental Television Center in Owego, NY. These recordings are the second release in the series and continue as sound based pieces using David Jone's image processing system. ETC expanded operations in 1974 with the first Jones Colorizer and in 1975 with a set of keyers, a multi-input syncable sequencer and a bank of oscillators, all designed and constructed by David Jones. Thanks to Hank Rudolph, Sherry and Ralph Hocking, Justin Lincoln, Giuseppe Ielasi and Denis Shapovalov. Ben Owen, November 2011... In terms of sound it is rather minimalistic canvas of the length of 72 minutes. The first two tracks let us see what we are concerned with. This is super-strict and absolutely unmusical matter. The listener can picture to himself something from CM von Hausswolff, but based on two patches subtly guiding the original pure signal. Obs, November 2011. [press-release]

Pale Roses -- "Fear Of Dawn" -- CD -- €10
2010 The Eastern Front, Front 028, (ltd. 1000)
Pale Roses is a new musical project from France (more precisely - from Bretagne) which plays neo-folk in its classical pure manner. Neo-folk typical sound becomes recognizable from the very first guitar accords and songs through the whole album, all its 10 compositions... The album is inspired, influenced and I would say even derives from Sol Invictus and there is its own specific charm in this thing. It is not about mindless copying Sol Invictus style, it is about Arnaud's view of Sol Invictus music that is converting into his own unique musical world which is called Pale Roses. [label info]

The Lime Green Yellow Recording Company, LGY 016 CD

People Like Us -- "Lassie House / Jumble Massive" -- CD -- €11
2000 Caciocavallo, CAD 9
This CD compiles two long out of print, obscure vinyls by People Like Us. Almost all (maybe all) were recorded as commisions for Dutch radio. People Like Us plunders her way through the wastelands of vinyl nobody buys, collages them into mostly strange, and at times funny pieces of music. Unlike other plunderphonics, People Like Us keep the voice/spoken word segments to a minimum, which I most hearthly welcome. Extensive spoken words are usually hilarious, but after repeated listening don't hold up. People Like Us use them as a supplementary part of music. There is an amount of easy listening stuff which may be dated now (the records come from 1995 and 1996 respectively), but it bears still the skills People Like Us have. Witty, to the point collages, a DJ that holds attention beyond the club setting, so one that indeed deserved to be re-issued. [FdW, Vital Weekly]

Pisaro, Michael / Sugimoto, Taku -- "2 Seconds / B Minor / Wave" -- CD -- €10
2010 Erstwhile Records, erstwhile 061
Michael Pisaro and Taku Sugimoto are not generally closely associated, but have quite a bit in common. Both are composers whose primary instrument is the guitar, both have close ties to the Wandelweiser collective (Pisaro is a longtime member), and both have pursued their unique paths without much concern as to how the rest of the world will perceive them. 2 seconds/b minor/wave marks their first collaboration, but these aesthetic overlaps allow their independently conceived recorded parts to fit together remarkably naturally... 2 seconds/b minor/wave is a long distance collaboration, with each musician composing and recording their own parts, before hearing what the other had done. Pulse, pitch and wave were the three areas they wanted to explore on the three pieces, and loose rules/guidelines were agreed on beforehand, as follows: '2 seconds' was a unit of pulse, either as a basic unit or a point of departure; 'b minor' was a key, with Sugimoto playing harmony and Pisaro playing melody: and 'wave', with no further details, simply whatever that word brought to mind. This was the extent of the specific discussion between the two, and thus the entirely fluid melding of the results is a testament to their deep understanding of the other's aesthetic/s. Yuko Zama's intuitively empathetic design is a perfect symbiotic fit for the music contained within. [label info]

Promyshlennaya Arkhitektura –- "Love and Technology" -- CD -- €17
2000 UR-Realist, URCD011
In spring 1988 Selivanov was the guitarist for "Putti" and "Grazhdanskaya Oborona", same year in autumn he plays live with his own band "Promyshlennaya Arkhitektura" ("Industrial Architechture"). Themes of his songs are amazingly similar to the panopticum of "collapsing new people" in Britain in early 1980-s: antisex, tiredness, decay, death. The definition "collapsing new people" was used by Fad Gadget in regards to one of the favourite groups of Moscow intelligentsia in 1990-s - Einstuerzende Neubauten; and although Selivanov is often compared to EN, comparing to Fad Gadget, Gary Numan or Magazine, and especially to the Leer-Rental duet with their album "The Bridge" (Industrial Records) would be more adequate. Monotonous guitar riffs, dark repetitive synths, lyrics about vanity and disgusting meaninglessness if the existence - a kind of trademark of electronic post punk. [Mikhail Verbitskiy]

ROME -- "Masse Mensch Material" -- CD -- €15
2008/2011 [Trisol] Music Group GmbH, TRI 394 CD
New wine from the orchards of Rome! After two successful albums, Nera and Confessions d’un Voleur d’Ames, ROME blesses us with its 12-track-knock-out Masse Mensch Material -which holds more than one musical surprise! ROME’s particular brand of post-industrial folk, combined with new-wave song-writing and neo-classical arrangements, takes on a new and poppy twist. But these outstanding songs have way too much depth to be dismissed as mere pop music. This third album is of a more subtle darkness and probably ROME’s best work to date. A work of art of extreme sincerity, Masse Mensch Material revolves around the themes of love, faith and endurance. ROME has created a fascinating world of contradictions which each song lays out with clarity and with all the cruelty and kindness intact. Within a very short period of time and at a terrifying pace, workaholic mastermind Jerome Reuter has carved his own path and created and established a dominion of his own, with its own codes and values. Through its bitter sweet melodies of exquisite sadness and rebellion, its haunting lyrics, mesmerizing vocals and recordings of unmatched production and sound, ROME has become the new face of dark romanticism. Jerome’s voice echoes pride and death of a time and place long forgotten. A voice which becomes the axis that breaks one’s consciousness into some kind of tender submission. Let yourself be buried in the shade of this masterpiece, in the beauty of desperation! Come out under the stars! ROME is the light! [CMI press-release]

Sal Solaris -- "Zwielicht" -- CD -- €10
2011 культФРОНТ, KF-XVI / 7Hz Records, 7HZ 06 D, (ltd. 88)
Zwielicht - a collection of sketches for "Tenebrae", a collaboration album of Majdanek Waltz & Sal Solaris dedicated to a German poet Paul Celan. "Tenebrae" was released in spring 2011 and became a result of consequential rework of the material. The initial recordings of Majdanek Waltz were interpreted by Sal Solaris, and then again brought to a common denominator. From our point of view, a stop on a road sometimes is worth the final goal. We found the intermediate resulf of Sal Solaris work so original that we decided to release it on a separate disc in the end of 2011. We think these sketches for "Tenebrae" not only have a completeness of form, but they also give the listener an opportunity to feel what illusiveness means - an idea, so important for the 21st century.

Streams of blind uncontrollable forse, rushing through the night of everything... 37 minutes of yearning for symbolic, speaking the language of burning universe. Noise as a key to understand one's own personality, unstable, fluid, transient, woven from countless voices, not belonging to itself, but still in its extreme manifestations able to reach the level of asking the timeless...

Sutcliffe Jugend / Satori -- "Japan Tour 2007" -- CD -- €11
2007 Cold Spring Records, CSR83CD
Split release from these two British acts for their Japanese Tour in April 2007... After "THIS IS THE TRUTH" Sutcliffe Jьgend continue to fuck with your brain. This time with a twenty eight minute diatribe against those who choose the path of least resistance, and suggest not only that they face their demons but embrace them. Are they questioning the listener or holding up a mirror and not liking what they see? Sutcliffe Jьgend continue to explore and understand the human condition with more depth and clarity of vision than a hundred singer/songwriters. A collage at turns ambient, experimental and explosive, they leave the listener thinking where next and more importantly - who is next in the line of fire... Satori arises with its first official release after 12 years of silence. 3 tracks of prime Fortean Electronics and Death Sonics, exploring the Noise side of Satori. Inspired by the Ringu trilogy, these tracks probe the hidden world of dead channel transmissions and unseen realms of the ether. This is the precursor to the Dark Ambient full-length album "KANASHIBARI", to be released on Dogma Chase Records / Molehill, Japan in 2007... Original artwork by Abby Hellasdottir. [press-release]

Vishudha Kali -- "The One Not With U.S." -- CD -- €9
2005 Stigmata, ST:02:2005, (ltd. 500)
The album was recorded during the beginning of the U.S. aggression against Iraq. As usual in recent years, States got Saddam, and nobody helped him. Probably if USSR still existed such things could find some resistance... This is partly why the album has some nostalgia for the Soviet Union, both in lyrics and music. First track of the album is a remake of one famous pioneer's song. I used to sing it in a pioneer camp some day, this is a kind of masterpiece of Soviet era. "Orlyonok" starts to open the theme pointed in albums title. This song embodied that culture and that system which were opposite to the country, that is, I believe, the Evil itself. Second and third tracks tell that "seven deaths can't happen, but one can't be avoided", as Russians say, and those who are not with us - are against us. So this is the developing of the album's idea following the intro cover of "Orlyonok". Anyway, even the greatest empires don't live long, they die too. And who knows, sometimes this day will come for the States as well. Then I think the world will be divided. Hence the title. The last track is the most programme track from the album, it contains quite a big text. The composition is built on the concept idea of diverging and converging harmonics. Ideologically this reflects the meaning of the album: the one who is not with us is against us. In technical terms, the structure of the track is built on psychoacoustical principles: sound components are separated for right and left channels. They mix in space during playback and affect the listener bringing him to a certain state as they create special resonances, so if you listen to the track in headphones, the sound will be different than in space.

V/A -- "From Earth To Sirius" -- 2 CD -- €15
2011 Zoharum, ZOHAR 020-2
'From Earth to Sirius' is a form of message sent from the Earth to the brightest star. It is composed of 20 exclusive tracks prepared especially for this compilation: S.E.T.I., DIFFERENT STATE, APOCALYPTIC VISIONS, EXPO '70, NORDVARGR, RAPOON, PHELIOS, ZENIAL, ELECTRIC URANUS, ATOMINE ELEKTRINE, X-NAVI:ET, KIA KARMA, HYBRYDS, OUROBOROS, AH CAMA-SOTZ, EMME YA, CHRISTBLOOD, UNKNOWN CALLER, KALLEE, THERION TRISMEGISTOS... Each of the participating projects presents a slightly different character and style, and, at the same time, shows a different aspect of the cosmic theme, its strong relation to the Earth cycle and human life... Sirius - the canine planete - the brightest star of the northern sky, placed in the Canis Major constellation. Known since the ancient times, it has left an imprint on forming outlooks, beliefs, religious centres in many cultures. Even the ancient Egyptians worshipped Sirius as a deity, built their calendar on Sirius' cycle closely connected to the Nile tides before the summer solstice. Moreover, they were building their temples so that the light from the star was visible from the altar. In the 20th century the interest in the magical aspect of Sirius did not die out. Thanks to the Discordian groups with R.A. Wilson and T. Leary at the head it is still being revived... The 'From Earth to Sirius' compilation, dedicated to R.A. Wilson - one of the greatest philosophers of the turn of the centuries - a wise, insightful, witty, optimistic man, is a trial at reinterpreting the myth known to the man for the thousands of years... The music on the album oscillates between psychedelic drone, dark ambient, tribal and downtempo. Some of the projects approaches the theme in the vein of ritualistic music, the others realises their ideas through the sounds of universe and deep dark infinite space. There are humorous overtones as well, so characteristic for R.A. Wilson. The huge array of styles and themes depicts how wide and multilayered concept is the cosmos, its meaning and influence on the human lives. [press-release]

Communism –- "Khronika Pikiruyuschego Bombardirovschika" -- MC -- €11
2001 HOR, hmc-038
This is the last album of COMMUNISM and this is definitely a unique and significant work, as it was the last work recorded with Kuzma, and it was fully concentrated on our own selves with our own material without any elements of outside existence. It became a bridge from the old COMMUNISM to a new project EGOR I OPIZDENEVSHIE and late phase of GRAZHDANSKAYA OBORONA. [Egor Letov]

Haare -- "Exogenesis" -- MC -- €8
2010 Abgurd, AB-60, (ltd. 100)
After a year of delay we have released the album by this finnish project recorded in the end of 2008. Abrasive, thunderous, psychodelic Drone Noise. A lot of long oppressing feedbacks, abyss of reverberating acoustic noises and guitar scratches are spread all over 53 minutes drowning you into thick resin of anthropomorphic terror. [press-release]

Kuzya Uo & Khristosy Na Paperti –- "Dvizhenie Vselenskoe Sie" -- MC -- €11
1996 Manchester Files, MAN 033
Solo Experimental Noise Rock project of a member of COMMUNISM and GRAZHDANSKAYA OBORONA - from late 80-s - early 90-s Soviet Siberian underground. [YAOP]

Kuzya Uo & Khristosy Na Paperti –- "Tram-Ta-Ra-Ra-Ram" -- MC -- €11
1996 Manchester Files, MAN 032
Recorded by Kuzya Uo partly at home, partly at Manager's home, who was invited to participate as a guest vocalist, and intently performed almost all vocal parts under vigilant guidance of the author. Musically, this is a daring blasting mixture of thrash-metal (!), punk and avantguard, victoriously performed with a dubious accompaniment of hand-made sick sounding rhythm-box. During the recording, Manager's tape recorderm which played back the background track, electrified extremely and spontaneously started to make annoying interference in inexorable form of loud and arhythmic electromagnetic FARTING, and also as deepest consistent dropouts in both channels. The recording has utterly cinical, non-trivial and simply unprecedented character. In its own way this is a valiant example of the highest degree of non-compromise and non-conformism on a global scale. [Egor Letov]

>o< -- "Autumn has come" -- MC -- €6
2006 YAOP, YAOP 022
Dilettantish improvisations on two acoustic guitars, flute and bells. Primitive anti-rock referring sometimes to pitch dark depression of Joy Division, sometimes to cold autumnal meditativeness of a teenager, sometimes to primeval drive of garage bands of 60-ies, sometimes to "hippie" psychedelics. Anti-rock position here is presented not only in inability to play, but mostly in anti-song and anti-pop-musical form: this album is listened more like something ambient-meditative than like traditional music. Fotocover. [press-release]

>o< -- "Autumnightabyss" -- MC -- €6
2006 YAOP, YAOP 021
Ragged gloom of dark autumn night. Severely minimalistic work - one long improvised track played on old Soviet synthesizer "Yunost-21" and recorded with wild overload. Obscure oppressive pulsations of primitive power electronics gradually transfer to dirty ultra-loud gothic noise ambient and finish with unhealthy collage of high pseudo-symphonic trills and crackling electro-noise. Fotocover. [press-release]

Adriva -- "Cold Sea Week" -- CD-R -- €8
2007 Abgurd, AB-43, (ltd. 100)
Project of Denis from formations of SUNCHARIOT, ENMERKAR and MATTER shows a little more experimental Drone Ambient than the one he performs in his main project, SUNCHARIOT. The album is dedicated to the author's sojourn on the shores of Black Sea in winter. Slack, congealed soundwaves crystallize in the air and gently descend on eyelids and shoulders, immersing one in eternal slumber of Suspense. Floating spectres of drowned fishermen, call-signs of ultramundane submarines, icefloes that ram Eternity, chasm of scalding coldness and pitch-darkness. [press-release]
[mp3]   [mp3]

Adriva -- "Voix de Mythe" -- 3"CD-R -- €8
2009 Abgurd, AB-54, (ltd. 50)
A new mini-album from this Russian project which album Cold Sea Week released by Abgurd in 2007 got good acknowledgement. The new material is completely acoustic without usage of any musical instruments. Only field recordings and feedback. Everything melts down into electroacoustic drone ambient of live tension. [label info]

Agnivolok -- "Cherries" -- CD -- €10
2006 The Eastern Front, Front 005, (ltd. 1000)
Israeli neo-folk project Agnivolok presents its album «Cherries». The album was planned to be released on a few years ago under the original title «Cherries for the Golden Skull», was re-worked slightly and out now. An impressive musical meltdown that takes traditional music into a new dimension. Passionate folk, rich of eastern and oriental characteristics, skillfully combined with experimental acoustic ambient layers, and a female voice that is haunted by melancholy. [press-release] Psychedelic folk with female vocals and some unusual instruments (two-handed saw, stone chello, ice flute), and some usual too.

Agnivolok -- "Sculptor" -- CD -- €10
2006 The Eastern Front, Front 004, (ltd. 1000)
Now on CD with a previously unreleased bonus track «Angels». The alchemy of Agnivolok, an Israeli ensemble of musicians whose roots lie in the depths of Russia and the Ukraine, takes you to a place where unspeakable events fall into place... An impressive musical meltdown that takes traditional music into a new dimension. Passionate folk, rich of eastern and oriental characteristics, skillfully combined with experimental acoustic ambient layers, and a female voice that is haunted by melancholy. Agnivolok is Near Life Experience—traditional music for spiritual travelers. [press-release] Reissue of LP previously published by now defunct German label StateArt with bonus track. Mournful female voice in company with lots of acoustic (guitar, bass, piano, harmonium, etc.) and electronic (samples, effects) instruments. Israeli import.

Agnivolok & Chaos As Shelter -- "Henbane" -- CD -- €10
2009 The Eastern Front, Front 024, (ltd. 1000)
Agnivolok is the neo-folk and experimental music project of Vera Agnivolok, Igor Krutogolov and Vadim Gusis. Vadim Gusis stands also behind the project Chaos As Shelter, his solo project. So this album seems a very logical collaboration, but could it not just been an Agnivolok album? Well, not quite. Since Agnivolok is very neofolk oriented and Chaos As Shelter makes mostly instrumental industrial soundscapes. Both projects take turns with each track, so we go from experimental neo-folk into experimental soundscapes. This way the album has a very interesting synergy. I very much like the, somewhat distorted, vocals of Vera Agnivolok, although I can’t hear what she really sings about, it has a very nice ambience to it. Neo-folk for me is often a hit or miss, but here it’s a definite hit. Because the neo-folk of Agnivolok has very industrial elements, it really fits with Chaos As Shelter soundscapes, to create one somewhat unique whole. With this album I really feel like walking in some dark industrial world, or some torn apart cities, and then getting some narrative in-between. It has therefore a somewhat cinematic quality, sometimes even theatrical. A very excellent release, even if you are perhaps not really into neo-folk. Though both projects have a significant sound of their own, together it works very well because they complete each others input. The Eastern Front has already delivered some fine releases, and this one they can put up there with some of their best albums! [Fabian, Gothtronic]

Ain Soph -- "October" -- CD -- €14
2002 Old Europa Cafe, OECD 044 / Misty Circles, MCR33
Yes the roman masters are back after 10 years with the AURORA follower album: "OKTOBER"... ! All is singed on Italian with their usual acoustic instrumentation and their tipical keyboard, songs in the way of Aurora but with an aditional rocking electric guitar, once more a work out of all standards! The more unusual industrial project which still works from inside the idustrial world... Tales from a jung russian guy during the october revolution... probably even more "surprising" than the last "incredible" AURORA... The disc that all of you was waiting for! Comes in ellegant digipack + lirics booklet. [label info]

Albireon -- "Mr. Nightbird Hates Blueberries" -- CD -- €14
2010 Old Europa Cafe, OECD 132
A dark comedy or a folk drama about drunk birds, mocking spiders, empty bottles and lost souls. Starring David E. Williams, Lloyd James, Sonne Hagal, Future Whirl, Die Weisse Rose. A strange manuscript, telling a tale about some bizarre characters, found somewhere in a forgotten cellar and hidden by countless broken bottles, was the inspiring spark for this dark comedy or folk drama-as the subtitles suggest-set to music in order to show how love can be a faint illusion and the deepest of all wounds. For this decadent party, recorded between late 2008 to early 2010 and graced by great emotional neo folk ballads and more experimental gloomy soundscapes, Albireon invited some very selected guests to share this tasty blueberries’ cake and offer the album a different palette of vocal nuances and a multinational coven of damned artists’ parade. American songwriter-genious David E. Williams, UK’s finest minstrel Lloyd James of Naevus, german neo folk leading act Sonne Hagal, Norwegian/american highly talented artist Future Whirl (formerly Oberon) and the new martial heroes Die Weisse Rose are the selected guests of Mr. Nightbird’s party. These great artists offered a priceless contribution to Albireon’s music and lyrics, and perfectly painted the sad main character, in his struggling pilgrimage toward love, loss, forgiveness and rebirth, but all seen through the drunk eye of the mocking spiders. And after all, you now may be guessing why Mr.Nightbird hates blueberries? Listen to the album and find out why! [press-release]

Alio Die -- "Under An Holy Ritual" -- LP -- €20
2006 Small Voices, SVV004, (ltd. 600)
Alio Die’s magnum opus on vinyl for the first time. Released on his own label Hic Sunt Leones (1992) and re-released by Projekt (1993), this is a milestone of ritual ambient music. Ghostly incantations from the void, subtly shifting frequencies and moods. Dream-inducing atmospheres and introspective drones. Stefano Musso has managed to resurrect unsettling sounds from a pre-Middle Ages epoch and merge them into a pastiche of gripping, evocative pastures for the discerning Ambient fan. Limited to 600 copies. [label info]

Allerseelen -- "Abenteuerliches Herz" -- CD -- €15
2002 Aorta, AORCD07
"Abenteuerliches Herz is a great album. Raw, powerful and complex. It is very exciting to see someone take the neo-folk music genre and completely redefine and broaden its scope. To see an artist infuse this genre with so many diverse musical approaches and infuse it with Mediterranean flavor has been a very unique and enjoyable experience. Allerseelen’s Abenteuerliches Herz truly stands out as an original and innovative release. I highly recommend this album to everyone. The music is very approachable and seductive. Faeries coming from many different music scenes will find both something familiar and something new in this music. All of the songs lyrical content is poetically esoteric and open to interpretation. The music is also good just for the experience. If you love innovative music that is redefining limits and boundaries you have to get Abenteuerliches Herz!" [Malahki Thorn, Heathen Harvest]

Allerseelen -- "Flamme" -- CD -- €15
2003/2004 Aorta, AORCD10
"Apocalyptic folklore magnetico pop.. The music on these two records is warm and sensual with apocalyptic pop, folklore magic and flamenco magnetico. Fine catchy melodies, infectious groovy rhythms, a lot of joie de vivre ambiance, lovely strings and a varied musical menu. Accessible and original at the same time. There are no weak moments. Some of my favourite songs are the sing-along 'Sonne golthi-ade (Josef)', the intimate classical songs 'Ob auch mein Herz so funkelt' and the almost Latin 'Sturmlied'. On the album even a DAF cover is present: 'Als wars das letzte Mal '.?"Flamme" sparks with the lovely choral 'Kamerad', the cheerful 'Lowin', the irrestible dancehit 'Goldener Lebenswein', the mysterious 'Knistern'... With this record the temperatures are rising again..." [funprox.com]

Allerseelen -- "Neuschwabenland" -- CD -- €15
2000 Aorta, AORCD05
"It is not only the packaging that possesses the texture of ice. A shimmering world of subterranean glacial caverns. One's consciousness is mesmerised by siren-like strings and metallic chimes, that glisten like frozen stalactites in this palace of ice. Sophisticated upbeat numbers veering toward pop territory in terms of its melody and construction, gelid love-songs. The addition of string and brass sections imbues the whole with a sense of subdued tension which acts as the perfect vehicle for Kadmon's pondering, poetic lyrics. Backdrobs of pulsating bass, sweeping reverberations. Wonderfully expressive violins provide a respite from the cold. As always with Allerseelen, one is left feeling enthused and invigorated by a brilliant listening experience. With concepts and music of this quality, Kadmons looks set to remain at the forefront of cutting-edge sounds for years to come." [Judas Kiss zine]

Allerseelen -- "Venezia" -- CD -- €15
2001 Aorta, AORCD06
Dedicated to Mediterranean culture and music, this album was inspired by the beautiful city of Venice, Italy. The albums music moves between powerful and rhythmic oriented tracks to soundtrack-type grooves, encompassing the decadent, inspired, hypnotic and surreal. Based on R.M.Rilke and inspired by Nietzsche and E.Pound. Lounge and downtempo industrial. [label info]

Allerseelen / Sangre Cavallum -- "Barco do Vinho" -- CD -- €12
2006 Ahnstern, Ahnstern 21
Barco do Vinho is the Portuguese word for Wine Boat - the boats that in the past brought the barrels of wine from the vineyards in Callaecia (Northern Portugal) on the river Douro to the town of Porto. The CD features four exclusive songs by the Northern-Portuguese group Sangre Cavallum and four exclusive songs by the Austrian group Allerseelen - ancient and traditional but at the same time brand-new avant-garde music, somewhere between apocalyptic folklore and psychedelic rock. Poetical songs about wine taken down rivers with crews of strong men, floating down throats with crews of sparkling spirits. Inspired by the vineyards that welcome the sun bringing character to grapes. Then a silent darkness, a timeless life inside oak barrels turn wine into flavoured blood for a toast between men and nature. [label info]

Antarktida -- "Baza 211" -- MC -- €6
2008 Valgriind, VG 10
Ritual Industrial / Martial Avanguarde. Reissue of a CDR previously released by UFA Muzak (2005). Collaboration project of Russian underground musicians standing behind Ryr, Thernoblyad and >O< is dedicated to German researches of the South Pole made in the 30ies of XX century. This disc can definitely break your view on how should sound military industrial concerned with National-Socialism. Insane collages made from retro music, German speech samples and mad sound-trash from Ryr are supplemented with savage industrial noise and rhythms from Thernoblyad and >O<. The guys evidently have outstanding imagination, all together it is listened on one breath. The booklet contains several collages comparable to music. "Deep penetration into the dark waters of occult-theosophic Reich, made together by projects Ryr, Thernoblyad and >O<, mystyc atmosphere of alchemic death, combined with cosmic vision of unknown areas of world and man. The secret of "Last Sacral King", "Haunebu" project, operation "Valkyrie" have become topics for this collaboration. Flying saucers, enigmatic arctic bases, experiments with time and space - everything finds its reality here. Cold industrial sound implicitly subdueds the consciousness to move towards the North. Ritual kicks and chtonic frost, analogue noise hell, burning apparatus and exalted classics." [UFA Muzak]

Apoptose -- "Bannwald" -- CD -- €14
2010 Tesco Organisation, TESCO 078
On a Friday in September many years ago three girls went into a large forest in northern Germany. They never returned. Apoptose followed their path into the woods and listened closely to the voices whispering among the trees. The new album »Bannwald« reflects the girls' journey to a realm of witchcraft, fairy-tales and ancient goddesses. Here in the green twilight of rustling leafs and crackling twigs nothing is as it seems and reality is covered by a thick layer of autumn foliage. The German term »Bannwald« bears a double meaning: On one hand it stands for a protected woodland where nobody is allowed to cut trees or even to enter. On the other hand »Bann« is an ancient word for ban or spell. After the urban nightmares of the last CD »Schattenmaedchen« Apoptose come back to the northern wilderness once more - the home of their very first album »Nordland«. This time with extended lineup: Those who had the chance to attend one of the rare live performances already know the voice of singer Silke and the enormous rhythms of the 15 drummers of the Fanfarenzug Leipzig. On »Bannwald« they join forces again to invoke the spirits of moss-covered stones and hidden glades. Needless to say, this CD comes in an outstandingly designed multiple-panel foldout cover featuring an 8-page booklet and a separate cardboard CD-sleeve. [press-release]

Apoptose -- "Schattenmädchen" -- CD -- €14
2007 Tesco Organisation, Tesco 068
Schattenmädchen (English: »shadow girl«) has always been around, waiting patiently for seven years to step out of the shadows and reveal its face. Apoptose's third album explores dystopian locations: the undergrounds of Japanese megacities, the depths of worldwide data highways, the nightmares of little children. The seven tracks express images of a desolate and dying world, far removed from the solitude of the beloved Northern woods. A world lacking daylight and oxygen. A bleak vision of reality. Over the years, several of these tracks made their way to compilation CDs all over the globe. There they laid dormant to be reunited some day to form this album. In autumn 2006, Apoptose joined forces with Japanese cyberpunk author Kenji Siratori to complete the cycle. On this album, Apoptose works for the first time with spoken word lyrics. Featured languages are Japanese, English, and German. The tracks previously on compilations have been polished/remixed/rerecorded and renamed especially for the unique listening experience of Schattenmädchen. The CD is housed in an embossed 6-panel cardboard cover with an additional booklet. 7 tracks, 62 min. [press release]

Arditi -- "Marching on to Victory" -- CD -- €14
2007 Equilibrium Music, EQM015
The original release of "Marching on to Victory" dates back to 2003, with a small pressing of 1000 copies on the obscure Swedish label Svartvintras. The legacy that one half of the project brought from his work with Puissance was fairly evident, yet the focus on his work as Arditi was not so much beautifuly orchestrated narrations of the apocalypse, but far grimmer depictions of the past centuries world conflicts. Field recordings and blurry speeches were incorporated into Arditi's compositions, adding a rather disturbing tone to the predominant military snare-drums, obscure symphonic arrangements and hypnotic soundscapes. The suffocating combination between martial classical arrangements and somber atmospheres would set Arditi's debut album as one of the bleakest releases on the Militaristic Neo-Classical movement that was starting to flourish at the time. "Marching on to Victory" is now made available again, in a deluxe Digipak release featuring 2 bonus tracks. [press release]

Arditi -- "Standards of Triumph" -- CD -- €14
2006 Equilibrium Music, EQM014
Boasting the unique personality of this Swedish combo, "Standards of Triumph" taps further into the darker tones of Militaristic Neo-Classical ambiance that has become the band's trademark, resulting in their strongest effort so far - ever effective in their use of crushing orchestrations and evocative speeches, Arditi hereby drags the listener around muddy trenches, leaving aside overly pompous festive marches or alcohol fueled merry bunker songs which seem to have become the norm as of late, and casting an hypnotizing veil over the turmoil of warfare-inspired Industrial soundscapes.

Atom, Mikhail -- "Astroepos" -- CD-R -- €8
1999 Soulworm Editions, Worm III
A conceptual masterpiece, and the ultimate one among those made by the Russian ambient artist known as Mikhail Atom. Travelling the nostalgic, subtle soundscapes, the author tries to render an illustration to the his own philosophical and alchemic searches. Sheer bells, monumental synths and mysterous, gentle noises... All this drives the listener to some kind of mystical mood while the spirit leaves the body for a while, wondering for what's hidden behind the horizon of meanings... [press-release]

Atrium Carceri -- "Souyuan" -- CD -- €14
2008 Cold Meat Industry, cmi189
3 years in the making, Atrium Carceri is back with another visceral masterpiece entitled Souyuan.

With fresh atmospheres, and a depth previously unfathomable, Souyuan will amaze initiates and pundits alike with its complexity and pureness of form. Never before has the artists innermost recesses been so sublimely conveyed to any medium... Simon, born in 1977, started producing when he early on played around with his Amiga and a microphone. In the years that have followed, Simon got involved in numerous projects and developed his knowledge and skills. During the process and through the years, he has been part of writing 16 albums and additionally many other tracks on compilations and other albums, released under various names, touching a broad range of ambient, dub, IDM, psy, folk, medieval, classical and black ambient. Simon is known for having reached a very high level both in story telling and production technique... Atrium Carceri has been praised by music critics and embraced by a cult audience for its depth of atmosphere. As described by one reviewer, "Heath creates a world where time collapses, where the ancient world of conjured spirits, the physical limitations of being all too human, and the infinite outreach of potential futuretech, all coexist."

Bisclaveret -- "Psyche noMine" -- CD -- €10
2006 The Eastern Front, Front 007, (ltd. 1000)
Bisclaveret - A Polish dark ambient/dark wave duo presents its album Psyche noMine. It took two years to conceive, resulting in 6 songs (clocking at around 53 minutes). Musically, it's a piece for those interested in moving, yet extraordinary art. Lush strings, industrial rhythms and even noise tones at times summarize the background for Dragos' voice coming from the other, subconscious side of his mind. Lyrically, it's a concept-album of sorts. All the lyrics deal with human sub consciousness. The words on 'Psyche noMine' shows a man entangled in the arcane of the world, somebody who does not notice phenomena around him. The man whose recklessness or even arrogance so natural for him is the cause for him being lost in the surrounding reality. The album's ambiguous title suggests what receivers will deal with when listening to new Bisclaveret album. A must-have album for fans of Nordvargr, Dead Man's Hill and Cold Meat Industry acts, such as In Slaughter Natives & Sanctum. [press-release]

Though only people themselves create History, they always prefer to re-write it afterwards, being horrified and embarrassed by what they have committed.

2007 Cold Meat Industry, cmi163
The Thelemic Warlord is back; and after years of silence and solitude Aldenon once again presents us with a true masterpiece - "The Dark Illuminati - A Celestial Tragedy in two acts". This is an epic saga of eight illuminating pieces trying to penetrate the core of the Darkest Light. Aldenon's characteristic growling coupled with Linus's bombastic drums and Karin's serene voice come together in a tapestry of ritualistic, penetrating and sinister ambiance. Included are three timeless classics in new and improved formats... Choirs, strings and intricate orchestrations bring about an unforgettable tale that won't leave any listener untouched; possibly giving rise to more questions, than it poses answers. So what is it? The Dark Illuminati - The Dark Enlightened.... A global elite attempting to enforce a world government? An organization controlling world affairs? The New World Order? Or a Secret Few, merely seeking to preserve the Dark Light....? Well... The Stage is set. The Music begins to play. But the Script has been lost. [press-release]

Der Blutharsch -- "s/t" -- CD -- €14

Der Blutharsch -- "Flying High!" -- CD -- €15
2009 WKN, WKN34
"Flying High!" with this psychedellic combat cry one of the most excentric and innovative projects from Austria / Vienna is returning. On their ninth studio album Der Blutharsch continues travelling in the direction they took back in 2005, when the former guru of martial industrial/military pop, Albin Julius, and his band, rocketed towards the deep space of psychedelia. One of the most controversial bands of the last decade staked its claim anew, totally breaking with old images, cliches and tunes. Starting already on the last album The Philosopher's Stone the turning to the walls of guitars and repetitive chants was already to recognize. Flying High turns this to a programmatic climax. If you start thinking on Sunn O))), Guru Guru, Amon Düül, Tangerine Dream or Godspeed You! Black Emperor you are not to far away, but still inherent is the big part of apocalyptic feeling which you are already used to. Highly influenced by the amercican West Coast Sound of the late sixties with a small dosis of that what some people use to call Krautrock. The tracks are slightly developing into eachother, ambient parts followed by ecstatic deathrock songs and then they glide into a wall of sound. The guestparts on the vocal side is full of well know artists: besides Bain Wolfkind and Albin Julius or Gianni Serusi, you discover 1980s legend Patrick Leagas who himself celebrates the title song in his typical distinctive manner. Flying High is a dark record, it mixes eros and deathwish, productivity with desctructivity. Since the release of, "When Did Wonderland End?", Der Blutharsch have mutated into a psychedelic rock monster; their motto, "into new territories!", symbolic for this mutation, a battle fought not by marching but by flying, 'Flying high!'. Flying high! is a weird trip for blown minds through the dark worlds of today's society, passing love, hate and lust during its journey into the center of the sun! The CD comes in a stunning foilblocked, painted with glowing in the dark ink, digipack, covered up in a need designed folder. [press-release]

Der Blutharsch -- "The Track Of The Hunted" -- CD -- €16

Deutsch Nepal -- "Comprendido!... Time Stop!" -- CD -- €14
1997 Cold Meat Industry, CMI.49

Gone is the ethnic influence and you will meet a new form of electronic treatment and distorted voices earlier not used in the Deutsch Nepal sound-image. [press-release]

The final part of "Silent" trilogy published by Old Europa Cafe. Great example of old school industrial! The album has been collected over 10 years and is spiritually close to Lina Baby Doll's live shows - alcohol-fueled, sometimes rhythmical, song-oriented, dark, chaotic and kinky.

DS Matter -- "Harmonia" -- CD-R -- €8
2009 Abgurd, AB-51, (ltd. 100)
After releasing two albums (Untitled and Pinky Lips) this project of Denis Shapovalov (SUNCHARIOT, ADRIVA, ENMERKAR) added two symbols to its name and one album two the discography. "Harmonia" is an oversimplification of frequencies or "supercompression" as an interpretation of author's point of view on the nowadays digital mastering in the mass-music that makes the final mix sound unified. The album presents only saturated frequencies on rise and fall. This sort of averaging allows disclosing new aspects of pure acoustic sounds of glass, plastic, wood, metal recorded with microphones and digitally processed. The album contains three long meditative tracks in a sophisticated electroacoustic manner with interesting variations of frequencies and warm droning backgrounds. [press-release]

The powerful noise-tracks alternate with hypnotic Ambient-Noise tunes, which give the album a comatose and traumatic character. "Heroinloops" is a varied and well structured Noise-album, for all fans of the early Industrial years. [press-release]

Folkstorm -- "The Culturecide Campaigns (Archive Series 5)" -- CD -- €14
2010 Old Europa Cafe, OECD 137
The series of the «Folkstorm» monster continues! The Culturecide Campaigns was released in 2000, only available for one month through MP3.com, during which time only 39 copies were sold. These more than ten years old recordings has now finally been restored, redesigned and remastered and features two bonus tracks. This album was recorded back to back with "Victory or death" and carries the same menacing feeling, but with a bit more structure and empahsis on pounding rythmic industrial noise. The Culturecide Campaigns was Folkstorms first attempt at infiltrating mainstream culture and also infiltrating the new and upcoming filesharing culture. Besides releasing this album only online it was also spread in secret over the Napster filesharing website. Mainstream "top ten album" downloads were manipulated and tracks were exchanged. That means that possibly thousands of people that were expecting to listen to Madonna or U2 ended up listening to this. So maybe this oscure gem actually has been more played than all of the Folkstorm albums, albeit in secrecy to an unaware audience? If you want rough old-school industrial this is what you need! The campaign continues... [press-release]

Foundation Hope -- "Tunes for the Wounded" -- CD -- €9
2008 Cold Meat Industry, cmi177
‘Tunes for the wounded’ can be considered a lament. It is a defamatory accusation to the world and it’s suffering. Foundation hope lodges complaints through gritty ambient-industrial structures, broken sounds and despairing moods. Always without losing touch with the beautiful and melodic. Always with that tiny bright spark of hope, overshadowed by doubt and cynicism. This successor to ‘The faded reveries’ is a little more harsh. Incorporated are distorted guitar drones, tape-decks, broken strings and noisy outbursts. Firmly rooted in reality, this is tears dropping slowly, a herd crawling through mud and blood, and a call to a redeemer who isn’t there. [label info]

Goatvargr is an assault on the senses, appealing to both the metal and noise scenes (for fans of MZ.412). [press-release]

:Golgatha: -- "Tales of Transgression and Sacrifice" -- CD -- €14
2007 Cold Meat Industry, cmi176
The French philosopher Georges Bataille serves as the inspiration for the new and third fulltime album of the German ritual-folk-band :Golgatha:. Founded in 2004 by Christoph Donarski and S. Marleni, :Golgatha: began in the dark realms of ambient-drones and continually developed their use of acoustic instruments to create a unique mixture organic and electronic elements. After two acclaimed albums on the subject of heroism, ‘Tales of Transgression & Sacrifice’ marks a certain change of course in the music of :Golgatha: – in a psychonautic trip from ritual-drumming via multi-textured soundscapes up to catchy folk-songs this album appears even more sensual, erotic and fascinating than before.

Herbst9 -- "The Gods Are Small Birds, But I Am The Falcon" -- CD -- €14
2008 Loki Foundation, LOKI 48The all new album of Herbst9 is a step further into the depths of the Assyrian and Asian mythologies, using authentic audio and visual fragments of sacrifices, lamentations, prayers and ancient rituals. The result is a deep labyrinth of sounds with meditative percussions, ghostly vocal fragments and singings which melts with detailed and multi-layered tones of various traditional instruments. All this is constructed around a core of dark and ongoing floating drones creating an atmosphere of true archaic music which has been developed by Herbst9 to perfection. This soundtrack is the secrecy from the deep and hidden places of the sacred earth transcending us beyond the real world to the inner realm of ourselves. The CD is presented in 6-panel digipack.

Herbst9 vs Z'EV -- "Through Bleak Landscapes" -- CD -- €14
2007 Loki Foundation, Loki 45
With this stunning collaboration the dark cavernous drones and ethnic-ritual instrumentation of Herbst9 melts with the complex and percussive sounds of industrial pionier and master of rhythmajik Z'EV. Ten tracks of deep spheres and blazing ruminant lightnings abducting you into golden constellations and swirling worlds full of aural effects and demonic resonance. Both projects worked with raw material of each other while the final mix was made by Herbst9. The result is a sombre and meditative soundtrack made with gongs, choral textures, deep vibrating strings and scraping effect-sounds reaching it's climax with outbursting tribalistic sequences and drummings. An impressive and gripping journey through bleak landscapes and abandoned places accompanied by a 24-pg booklet. [press-release]

In Gowan Ring -- "Exits and Entrances" -- 2 CD -- €16
2007 Ahnstern, Ahnstern25
Jon Michael B'Eirth (B' - IN GOWAN RING / BIRCH BOOK) is one of the last of a dying breed, that of the wandering minstrel. At the same time he is one of the first, one of the founders of a new generation of Folk musicians, gently growing out of the early ninetees, after a worldwide, for 15 years lasting dark era of no ambitious Folkrock music at all. Approaching the middle of the 70ies, all the great Folk-Rock bands, Songwriters and Minstrels either disappeared or started to drift into triviality (beside a very few exceptions) and the darkness in Folk should last up to the late 80ies/early 90ies, when artists from the early World Serpent label recovered their roots out of the late 60ies/early 70ies era. This was the time, when the young B' joined World Serpent and within only 2 albums, he got one of the most important acts on that label and for the whole growing scene. From the very beginning until today he was the lonesome wandering minstrel and with his heartbreaking balads and Psychedelic Folk tunes he occupied many hearts over the past 15 years. IN GOWAN RING is not only unique because of B's outrider position, he is also a perfectionist and a highly professional autodidact. He is one of the very few persons I ever met, who plays all imaginable instruments and who is even able to build and (re)construct these instruments himself. A unique genius with a big heart full of sadness and flowers... Exists & Entrances is a retrospective through the years 1994 to 2003. All 40 songs and 157 minutes have never been released officially before, only the artist himself gave away some copies on CDR. On several songs B' was performing with Michael Moinyhan & Annabel Lee (BLOOD AXIS / ALRAUNE), with Markus Wolff (WALDTEUFEL) and other friends around his magical circle of Folk freaks. Besides several traditional songs, this compilation also includes coverversions from songs by great 60ies/70ies Progressive Folk artists and songwriters, like THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND, STRAWBS, VASHTI BUNYAN, NICK DRAKE, FRED NIEL, ROD McKUEN, as well as coverversions from PSYCHIC TV, LEGENDARY PINK DOTS, Brian Castillo (JARBOE) and 17 PYGMIES. All songs were remastered by Axel Frank (WERKRAUM) in the Blue Lounge Studios/Berlin. [press release]

Inade -- "The Crackling Of The Anonymous" -- CD -- €14
Loki Foundation, LOKI29
After 5 years since the last studio album Aldebaran, we can finally announce the release of a new full lenght work. With The Crackling Of The Anonymous, Inade move beyond all pre-conceived notions of sonic creativity. The plethora of puzzle pieces that interconnect in the expanding universe that Inade unwaveringly explores have grown amorphous, no longer defined by distinct outlines, melding as one whole, obscure entity. The expansion comes in many levels, incorporating the vast parameters of time, dimension and reality as viable participants in Inade's aural objective: to shine a light on the enigmatic unknown and give it a vague silhouette. The dark and hallucinatory masterwork that is The Crackling Of The Anonymous, is constructed via the never heard utterances of the void, while tapping into the psyche of the impossible. A stunning release that defies all logic because it creates its own! [press-release]

Jarl -- "Turbulence Colour" -- 2 CD -- €18
2008 Autarkeia, acd 030, (ltd. 500)
Turbulence Colour is the tenth album of talented Swedish composer Erik Jarl, containing two and a half hours of new, never released sound material in two CDs. In terms of music, Erik Jarl remains loyal to his original but dismal style. Very long, hypnotic tracks convey unbearable, depressing and morbid states of human psyche. Turbulence Colour is at the same time a journey into the grey matrix of anxiety where the listeners are masterfully taken through the sickly labyrinths of the author’s mind. The latest Erik Jarl’s release is the top class drone psychocollage packed into a very elegant package. [press-release]

Jarl -- "Vertigo Rebirth" -- CD -- €13
2010 Autarkeia, acd 053, (ltd. 200)
Vertigo Rebirth is the fourteenth album of Swedish composer Erik Jarl and the third and last part of the Vertigo trilogy. It is difficult to say anything more about Jarl’s music on the whole. Like the earlier albums, this one generates particularly severe emotions that could be shortly defined as isolation, intoxication and especially negative, poisonous intuition. This impression is enhanced by the contrast. Erik opens the album with a track that has a construction uncharacteristic to his previous compositions. This composition contains quite strange rhythmics and is rather dynamic, which generates deceptive elation. But that’s only the first track of the album. The rest fling the audience back to the cold uncompromising space of drone, piercing and crushing all attempts to perceive the phenomenon of Jarl’s impasse. This is one more remarkable album for potential suicides. [press-release]

Kammarheit -- "Asleep and Well Hidden" -- CD -- €14
2003/2005 Cyclic Law, 3rd Cycle
First "official" CD from this Swedish master of what we could term apocalyptic dark ambient. After a streak of CDrs and an apperance on the "Nord Ambient Alliance" compilation CD, Kammarheit offers us a unique album of tortured sonic landscapes taking us on an unsetteling journey through darkened dreams. Homogeneous dark ambiences combined with serene drones and put together as a shadowy collection of dreamy, melancholic soundscapes, Kammarheit forms images of long lost ruins, barren lands and gigantic, rumbling machines. "Asleep and well hidden" was created as a tool for dreamers, a place to flee to when the outside world comes too close. [label info]

Drone Ambient as it is performed by CLOSING THE ETERNITY by Scum and Rhythm'n'Noise falling into Power Electronics by dr.Feitnathoroth. Distorting reality, hum in your head, voice in your ears... Sophisticated structures of industrial dance-rhythms force you to dance with your conscious rapped... Shutting doors, echoes of steps -- unreality of drained brain...

Lustmord -- "Heresy" -- CD -- €15
1990/2004 Soleilmoon, Sol 99 CD
It's not often that an album comes along that both initiates and defines a genre. From the deepest vault at Soleilmoon, precisely such a cherished but long unavailable classic has been remastered, repackaged and re-issued. "Heresy", the album that launched and defined the dark ambient genre when it was first released in 1990, has been hailed by critics and fans as one of the most important works of its time. Nearly 15 years after its release it regularly features on top-ten lists of ambient music. "Heresy" was recorded in various subterranean locations and manipulated in the studio with Andrew Lagowski providing engineering and additional programming. It was the first Lustmord album to feature extensive sampling and computer assisted sound design. Recent improvements in sound technology permitted Lustmord to re-master and significantly improve on the original recordings for this new version, which comes in a digipak and even bears a new catalog number. Based on recognition established through recordings like "Heresy", Brian Williams, the man behind Lustmord, went on to work as a sound designer in Hollywood and has over 40 major motion picture credits as well as TV, games and now commercials. His resume includes musical collaborations with The Melvins, Adam Jones (Tool), Chris & Cosey, Coil, Paul Haslinger (Tangerine Dream), SPK, Robert Rich, Current 93 and Nurse with Wound. He has done remixes for Jarboe (Swans), Venetian Snares, Lori Carson and Mortiis. From 1985 until 1999 he ran Side Effects Records, the label launched by SPK, releasing more than 30 albums. As Lustmord he has released 11 albums since 1981. "Heresy" stands as Lustmord's signature work, the gauntlet that birthed a genre, and this new edition shows even more why it's been a best seller for such a long time. [press-release]

Moljebka Pvlse setup long nylon strings across his entire studio at school, which he then plucked and bowed and recorded with his favorite contact microphones on that very night. These recordings became the fundament of the album and set the tone for the rest of the work.

Ouroboros -- "Opus Tartari" -- CD -- €10
2011 Zoharum, ZOHAR 018-2
'Opus Tartari' is the latest album of Italian dark ambient project which - in its leader's own words - after years of esoteric and alchemist studies decided to transfer his own experiences into music. Ouroboros should be then treated as a medium used in search for its own philosophical stone. Compositions included on the album lead the listener into the world of antique and medieval times due to their tunes and the singing in Latin. Mystical, slightly sacral character of the tracks has become its leitmotif recognisible for the band. Marco Grosso known for his collaboration with many session musicians (with Claudio Dondo of Runes Order) asked a lot of vocalists (Nuna Luna - soprano voice, Sorath Isis, Aleph Zero, Malice) to participate in the recordings as well. This resulted in the creation of 'Opus Tartari' - an intriguing, emotional, full of unsettling beauty and esoterica journey. The album can be likened to early releases of Diamanda Galas, The Moon and the Nightspirit and The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud. The album has been released in a 3-panel digipak. [press-release]

Post Scriptvm -- "Marginal Existence" -- CD -- €14
2005 Hermetique, H-CD04, (ltd. 500)
A sound work on its own. An extremely dark one. Some sort of contemplative mirror of a sick society. It is without artifice that this American project hailing from New-York (Brooklyn) unveils us a neat and unhealthy piece of sound work of an incredible intrinsic maturity. A now mad and rabid, now suffocating atmosphere. The thread seems uncertain and lures the listener into a cruel maze with no exit. Here each sound is disembodied, jammed and torn out. Is this reality or is it fiction? On edge. Existence is a painful last resort. A desperate move. In search of one's own body, of one's own destiny. The journey is a dangerous and solitary one. Putrefied flesh, fleshless and revengeful spectres. Clockwork is irremediably running towards its last turn. Paralyzing. Like a trepan, Post-Scriptvm goes deeply into the unutterable side of our mind and of our sensitivity. A journey with no safe return guarantee and a possible dead end as an outlet in a pitiless and disjointed pipe dream like scenery. In the heart of the senses and of the emotion. The search for the past, for history and for existence lies in the fact of digging the earth among rubble and muddy bones in order to rebuild this macabre and moribund puzzle of our human life ad infinitum. A unique masterpiece incarnating an open-heart operative field, a brain surgery of the last chance during which a general anaesthesia is proscribed. Mastered by Jerome Nougaillon (Propergol), it comes in special envelope with inserts and is limited to 500 copies. [label info]

Rasthof Dachau -- "Prison Poems" -- CD -- €14
2006 Steinklang Records, SK36
7 years went by since the last album from this Austrian Cold-Electronic project was released. "Prison Poems" is a conceptual work about the Irish civil-rights movement in the 70ies of the last century. The album deals about the fate of a handful young IRA volunteers, imprisoned for political affairs, but then simply sentenced as criminals. After a long hungerstrike, the young men died, forgotten from the rest of the world. Most songtexts on this album were written by one of these young men who died from hunger. He wrote these poems on toilet- and cigarette-paper with the refill of a biro-pen, hidden inside his body in the years before he died. The sound on this album varies from dark and cold songs a la GalaktHorroe to early SPK-like Heavy-Electronic tracks. All with hard or subliminal rhythms and psychic analogue frequencies.

Spiritual Front -- "Armageddon Gigolo" -- CD -- €14
2006 [Trisol] Music Group GmbH, TRI272CD
With fervent ballads combining "Mafia-folk", Nick Cave and Ennio Morricone - refined with a shot of Rock'n'Roll-Spirit - the Italian project SPIRITUAL FRONT along with their likeable singer Simone Salvatori have nestled cozily among different styles of music. What once started as a mixture of acoustic pop and free-style folk has soon turned out to be a charismatic live act and is just about to astonish the music business with their highly exceptional vision of Suicide Pop. Supported by the musicians of the Ennio Morricone Orchestra, the new album skillfully combines Western and Gangster film atmosphere and the aura of great entertainers which melt into a genuine, post-modern mixture. The result is music for the anarchistic youth of the future inspired by the spirit of the past. Vibrating guitar riffs, pointed piano chords, devoted strings and a subtle acoustic guitar support expressive English vocals which bewail the grievances of Machismo who is caught between an overwhelming drive for freedom and a romantic desire for eternity. This album definitely is a straight tip for all Bad Boys & Girls out there, for anarchistic rebels - and machos with a tender heart. Love and suffer with SPRITUAL FRONT. [label info]

Sturmpercht -- "Geister im Waldgebirg" -- CD -- €15
2006 Percht, Percht 07
One year has passed since the Austrian / south Bavarian Alpin-Folk formation Sturmpercht released their last 7". Finally now here is their long awaited new album! "Geister im Waldgebirg" is a journey through the deepest central-European forests and mountains with all their strange creatures, fairies, myths and legends. The sounds and lyrics on this album are engrained in old pagan rites and cults, in hunters-legends and in tales from darkest woods and the people living there. The songstyles vary from powerful Martial-Folk hymns, over fragile Folk-balads, to weird songs about strange people and creepy animals. Several great artists supported Sturmpercht in the making of this album: first af all Axel from WERKRAUM, who is a basic Sturmpercht-member since quite a while now. It's Axels perfect guitar- and flute playing and his skillful hands in mixing, that the Folk-songs have this brilliant late 60ies/early 70ies touch now. The close Sturmpercht-friends ALLERSEELEN, SANGRE CAVALLUM and WALDTEUFEL have also recorded fantastic songs especially for this album. Allerseelen and Sangre Cavallum also contributed several sounds from their large archives and Waldteufel additionally gave his voice for "Riesenbruder". Sturmpercht is the only Folk-band, who created their own music style named "ALPIN-FOLK", which is absolutely unique up to now. Anyway if you prefer straight or weird Folk: there is no way around this album for all kinds of Folk-Lovers. This album will be your closest friend in dark and frosty winter nights! [press-release]

Subhuman -- "s/t" -- 3"CD-R -- €10
2005 Abgurd Subdivision, AB-09, (ltd. 99)
Project which authors preferred to stay unknown for the audience plays raw martial. Without politics, without "blood and soil", only musical retrospection of 30-40-ies. [label info]

Subhuman -- [untitled II] -- 3"CD-R -- €8
2006 Abgurd Subdivision, AB-18, (ltd. 198)
Second untitled work from Subhuman. Symphony of desolation after the hostilities. Distant buzzes and whistles, melancholic piano passages, rought drum rolls and speech samples. This mini-album will perfectly fit as a soundtrack for documentaries about the destruction of cities during WWII. Music can be possibly compared to Von Thronstahl and most soft works of Toroidh. Without politics, without "blood and soil". [press-release]

Subhuman -- "[untitled III]" -- 3"CD-R -- €8
2008 Abgurd, AB-50, (ltd. 50)
Final part in the history of the project. The first two 3" CDrs gained a lot of attention and and good reviews, many people asked if any continuation would happen. If [untitled I] was rather bombastic, with neoclassic elements, whereas [untitled II] shifted emphasis to ambiences and minimal use of instruments while being more industrial — [untitled III] merges those two sides of Martial genre, combining light and touchy melodies with deep background ambiences. [press-release]

Surma -- "Allocutio" -- CD -- €10
2008 The Eastern Front, Front 019, (ltd. 300)
New album of the very young Ukrainian project Surma. Martial ambient sounds mixed with industrial elements and nostalgic old samples. [label info] Walking those desolate battlefields of Les Joyaux de la Princesse and Der Blutharsch Surma is operating in their vein making sober martial ambient. Old shellac and repetitive loops of battle sounds grinding you through this war machine. As the smoke slowly disappears the horror will become visible and the stench of rough blood penetrates your nostrils. Allocutio brings you the oppressive atmospheres from the trenches. Starting with some kind of anthem in the “First Vision” we enter the rotating war samples of bombing with some metal percussion and a distant voice in the “Second Vision”. The martial genre is a genre with not much room for innovation and so this release continues with four more other visions with the same ingredients. Surma makes filmic martial ambient creating pictures of war and desolation. Allocutio is a nice record but the genre itself has nothing new to offer and so does Surma but Surma can compete with the best acts from the genre and is therefore interesting enough for those who like acts such as Combative Alignment or LJDLP. [Gothtronic]

Survival Unit -- "Murder For The Mission" -- CD -- €13
2005/2009 Autarkeia, acd 034
Although the cult album Fentanyl Martyrs embodied the death of Survival Unit project, the latter is toxic even while buried. The zombies are coming back. The new album Murder For The Mission is Volume 1 of old and very rare, almost unobtainable retrospective records of the Swedish cult project or the collection of cultural terrorism. The album Murder For The Mission includes both released and yet unreleased tracks from a few sessions. These are Vemod label's tape Murder For The Mission, a concert in Paris and the CDR Utan Fana released as very limited edition. So the audio terror goes on and those who believe that it has ended after the Fentanyl Martyrs act, now will pay the double price. The extremely aggressive psycho-powerelectronics shock full of hatred and insane samples will get them. [press-release]

Survival Unit -- "Thought-Trigger-Target" -- CD -- €13
2001/2009 Autarkeia, acd 040
Here is one more masterpiece of Swedish cultural terrorism supplemented with new material and re-released in the golden collection of cultural terrorism series. If compared with the most aggressive albums of Kristian Olsson’s gang Survival Unit, this one is perhaps more atmospheric than openly destructive. Yet, like all other Survival Unit’s diversions, it is pervaded by the black social despair, hate towards human civilisation and the lies it spreads about the reality. It also conveys the position of a person developed in the violent world, i.e. violence against violence for violence. Resistance to everything and anything. Life and its meaning in a nihilistic fight against the surrounding fake reality. This album is a gloomy insight into the future that awaits us all and a fine lesson showing us what stands at the end of the Scandinavian idyll. The album is released in a very elegant digipack with an embossed cover. [press-release]

Survival Unit -- "Tied Down For Survival" -- CD -- €13
2003/2009 Autarkeia, acd 038, (ltd. 500)
At the times of global crisis, the zombies of cultural terrorism strike again with the fire of new toxic power. Tied Down For Survival is a old/new blow from the Scandinavian cult project Survival Unit to the rotten cancer of Western civilisation and the second collection of rarities in the golden collection of cultural terrorism series. This is an exceptionally suggestive, psychedelic power electronics with deeply terrorising implications. Here you will listen to unreleased live records, passages from limited edition utan fana and the controversial conspiracy theory of Rolf-Peter Andersson, where Swedish monarch family, Indira Gandhi and Mikhail Gorbachev practice cannibalism.

Survival Unit -- "Will To Zero" -- CD -- €13
2002/2009 Autarkeia, acd 039
Will To Zero is the third part in Survival Unit’s golden collection of cultural terrorism series, actually meant for crippling as many people as possible without a hope of recovery. Daresay, that all in this album serves for the attainment of this purpose. The duration of esp. aggressive and deranged tracks exceeds 15 mins. Very straightforward sound, often reminding the invasion of rats, crushes the minds of all calibres. Do you believe your nerves are strong enough to take this? Then read the title once again and then go buy medical insurance. Zero chances to withstand. But those who do, will surely require medicines for the rest of their lives. The release is presented in a fine digipack of three embossed sides. [press-release]

Thorofon -- "Final Movement" -- CD -- €15
2002/2007 Klanggalerie, gg94, (ltd. 500)
A milestone in Thorofon's back catalogue, 'Final Movement' was released on the band's own UMB label in 2002. A very limited version of the album had a 10" included which is also present on this CD re-issue. And in addition, we have thrown in a previously unreleased track so the playing time is extended to nearly 80 minutes. Thorofon are a German-based duo consisting of Genevieve Pasquier (who also records as a solo artist) and Anton Knilpert. Although their sound is very unique, their roots lie in classic 80's Industrial - 'Final Movement' starts where SPK stopped in the mid Eighties. 'Bloodheat' is more your Cabaret Voltaire or Portion Control. A killer album first time on CD. [press-release]

2002 Zeromoon, ZERO 001, (ltd. 1000)
The Ultra Milkmaids from France meet v. (feat. Jeff Surak from Violet) from Washington DC and give birth to a mutant baby quite unlike either of its parents. Abstract, dense music that you can hum and that will swirl around in your head. [label info] “Each of the seven tracks featured here offers a unique and immensely engaging sound environment. …it has proven to be a recording that reveals its secrets slowly and with careful listening. Recommended.” [Incursion] “Brilliant by many factors, the most important of which in my opinion, the difficulty of joining the more improvised nature of v w/ the more electronica evolution of the milkies.” [Absurd]

The album is tributed to the Russian «ghost-towns» Kadykchan, Kursha-2 and Halmer-U. Kadykchan («Death Valley» in Evenk) is a miners urban village in Susuman district of Magadan region, which was left by the inhabitants after the mine detonation in 1996. Nowadays only a few native people live in this dead town without central heating and water and power supply in half-destroyed apartments. Kursha-2 was build shortly after the Russian Revolution as a workers village for mastering vast forests of the Central Meshera. In the year 1936, during hot and windy summer, 1200 humans were burnt out alive because of the forest fire that surrounded Kursha and outskirts. Halmer-U («Death Valley» in Nenets) is situated in the area that was used by natives as a burial place for centuries. In the end of 20th century it became another «not wanted» miners town. People were evicted to Vorkuta city by riot squads. Three tracks of disturbing static oppression. All-dead Drone Ambient and sizzling Drone Noise dressing you alive. VELEHENTOR is well-known for its skill in creating the proper atmosphere using only facts, and here it is reproducted as by a direct witness. [press-release]
