Barrikad -- "Nordic Ideological Frontline" -- CD-R -- €4
2014 Aaltra Records, aa08, (ltd. 100)
Active since 2001, the Gothenburg-based unit BARRIKAD developed a very personal approach to harsh/industrial noise throughout enlightened excursions into semiotics and philosophy as well as showing his attachment for left-wing ideology and activism filtered by a genuine crust/HC attitude. Every track from his discography sounds like a statement. This CD-retrospective is the best overlook on his music: a collection of 10 tracks ripped off from selected works he released in the years on great labels such as Segerhuva, Freak Animal, Peripheral, Nil by Mouth and Phage Tapes among others. Pro-CDr, 2-panel slim-digipack in edition of 100. [label info]

Crawl Unit -- "Vs. Silence" -- CD -- €5
1996 Manifold Records, MANCD06
The sounds on this record, originally recorded between 1993 and 1995, were intended for use as "environmental sound for exhibition space". These pieces are remarkable for how their subtle and dense soundscaping continuously moves in and out of a foundation in silence. These five segments create an amorphous whole where silence is not only used as marks of punctuation, but fulfils its double role as both the source and the destination of sound. [Richard DiSanto, Incursion.org]

Deison & Candor Chasma -- "Antimatter Circles" -- CD -- €7
2013 Show Me Your Wounds Production, LESION # 0014, (ltd. 299)
Recorded within a one-year span "Antimatter Circles" is the collaborative effort of Cristiano Deison and Candor Chasma (Simon Balestrazzi & Corrado Altieri). In this exploratory voyage in the depths of sideral space, the trio weaves dense sonic fabrics using electronic and concrète sources creating an immersive organic sound paired with crumbling arid noise. They spontaneously build aural gems that hide a frantic level of activity under their occasionally serene looks: turmoiled and thoughtful electronic fluctuations meet slow-motion drone hallucinations, ghostly creaking sounds mix with highly complex electro-acoustic and electronic textures, field recordings and synthetic pulses. This album unveils the mysteries from the deep and hides an in-depth research on aural aesthetics, a finely developed approach to sound, philosophy, and sound ecology. [label info]

Frozen Ocean -- "Prills Of Remembrance" -- CD -- €13
2015 HAARBN Productions, HAARBN 028, (ltd. 100)
This album could be an awesome soundtrack. And it is, if you would like to mean a soundtrack to loosy surreal pictures flashing in your mind. "Prills Of Remembrance" is completely novel experience for Frozen Ocean: it contains nether metal, nor droning ambience but has the atmosphere of touchy melodies and simple silent rhytms instead. [label info]
Frozen Ocean -- "The Prowess Of Dormition" -- CD EP -- €10
2015 Apocalyptic Witchcraft, APW 005
A long EP of 25 minutes was intended to be a bridge from mostly electronic period in Frozen Ocean art back to metal addiction, but became something standing alone instead. For sure, it foretells what future releases of Frozen Ocean will look like, but at the same time it has its own face, frozen and injured but full of heavy rage. Midtempo atmospheric metal, "blackened" if you would like, with involuntary touch of pagan melodics and crystal translucent electronics; four long songs about winter, struggle and death, epic and inspiring; a hint of what you could expect from Frozen Ocean of tomorrow - all this is "The Prowess Of Dormition". P.S. "Dormition" as not the religious phenomenon (something unclear about virgin mary whatsoever), but as "death sleep". [label info]
Goatpsalm -- "Downstream" -- CD -- €9
2016 Aesthetic Death Records, ADCD 035, (ltd. 1000)
Supergroup consisting of Horth (Karna), Vaarwel (Frozen Ocean) and Sadist (Misanthropic Art, SS-18, Alienation Cold, Baal Zebuth, Deathmoor, Lashblood).

Haemorrhaging Fetus / Ferveur Noire / Sick Buildings -- "The Dense Gravel Of The Riverbed" -- CD-R -- €7
2007 Militant Walls, #09, (ltd. 100)
An eminent study of harsh noise through another three drastically different approaches from three amazing contemporary harsh noise artists. Haemorrhaging Fetus pummels the listener with a concentrated and seething avalanche of crunched electronics that ride down a mountain of heavy rock and cliff formations. Ferveur Noire takes a more abrupt and violent approach with stabbing and grating shifts and movements, all the while keeping the constant suffocation obvious. Sick Buildings offers a concise, concentrated, and incredibly tense study of harsh sound, it's explosive quality, and the rumbling sub frequencies it disrupts before and after it's attack. Easily one of the most focused works I have ever heard, taking the entity of harsh noise to new levels of study and concept. The release features a 'crystal' pro-CDr with pro-printed inserts and disc artwork, both encased in a vinyl 'trigger' case. 100 ed. [label info]

Hoarfrost -- "Anima Mundi" -- CD -- €10
2016 Reverse Alignment, RA-27, (ltd. 300)
Anima Mundi - the world soul. Sometimes interpreted as the mythical Gaia or the mother of earth and all it's life and forms. The superorganism of the planet. With their fourth album, Hoarfrost explores the philosophical view of mother earth as the caring ancient goddess and the possibility that she's actually a Medea that will deceive and betray humanity, making us faithless and deprived of our will to survive. And in the end, facing total collapse. On "Anima Mundi", Hoarfrost collaborates with Katarzyna Bromirska (cello), Valdi Rzeszut (guitar), Dawid Chrapla and Tomasz Twardawa (noise structures) bringing us dark ambient industrialism... [label info] "I would highly recommend this to listeners who love to hear musicians step outside the normality of so much modern music. There is little here that could be directly compared to anything else out there. Hoarfrost have presented their most unique work to date." [Michael Barnett, Terra Relicta]

K2 / GX Jupitter-Larsen -- "Convulsing Vestibular" -- CD -- €5
2014 4iB Records, 4iB CD/1213/005, (ltd. 250)
30 years is a long time for 2 people from different corners of the world to come full circle and meet again. Old time buddies K2 (Kimihide Kusafuka) and GX Jupitter-Larsen (The Haters/Survival Research Laboratories) are both presented together on this split CD release after their paths first crossed in the 1980’s when they were actively involved in the underground populist artistic movement of mail art and homemade audio tape trading. In 1999, they met once again in Kyoto, Japan where they performed together on stage dressed up in Lucha Libre wrestling masks. This show also saw GX rigged-up in a championship wrestling belt that had been specially reconstructed to generate pure harsh noise through a built in microphone and distortion pedal. In many ways, this release presents a significant homecoming of sorts, where 2 old friends cross paths once more to showcase their unique styles of sonic mayhem together... [label info]

La Casa, Eric & Jean-Luc Guionnet -- "Inscape. Lille-Flandres" -- CD -- €5
2008 Monotype Records, mono019
As Inscape Eric La Casa & Jean-Luc Guionnet deal with 'site-specific listening installations', 'principally on the notion of 'background noise'. The review of their CD can never really deal with all the implications of their project (otherwise I'd be retyping the entire booklet), but they more or less scan the environment where a project is by means of audio and video, which are used in a live concert or an installation piece. 'Lille-Flanders' was made in 2004 at a disused postal sorting office, now a cultural space and a list of sounds is in the booklet. Best is to sit back and let the music just roll about. Cars passing, trains, water meter, the rain falling, incidental music from the nearby train station etc. Its all there. Other than LaCasa's solo work, this is more a collage like approach on sounds, with a bit more rapid mixing than in his solo work. It makes a small, but significant difference and it makes a beautiful piece of music. A very fine and solid work of field recordings. [FdW, Vital Weekly]
Legiac -- "The Voynich Manuscript" -- CD -- €12
2016 Dronarivm, DR-40
After last year’s sophomore release, The Faex Has Decimated, on Tympanik Audio, the Legiac project is back, but this time on the Russian based Dronarivm label, where the new album feels more at home. This time, the electronic duo of Roel Funcken and Cor Bolten take on a more meditative approach to their mildly glitch-infused, modular explored sounds, weaving in ambient textures, field recordings, and vast soundscapes. Titled after an early 15th century hand-written and illustrated codex, named after Wilfrid Voynich, the mysteries within this cryptic album can only be unlocked upon subsequent rotations, offering it up as a soundtrack to an enigmatic place, existing somewhere within imagination of these two prolific artists. The Voynich Manuscript slowly transforms its listener from a seemingly ordinary habitat, to a day-dream haze, to kaleidoscopic illusion – a sonic environment you thirst to visit once again… [label info]

Marchetti, Lionel / Jean-Baptiste Favory -- "100 000 Annees" -- 2 CD -- €8
2008 Monotype Records, mono020
"Kitnabudja Town" by Lionel Marchetti is a fascinating and abounding composition, a colossal encyclopaedia to dissect with patience, an unseen sound collage that revives with the beloved techniques of the surrealists to reach a kind of automatic writing, a flux of thinking that is nor music, neither science, philosophy, neither eastern, nor western, at the same time electronic and shamanic... using studio techniques that we can discern as archaic, lionel marchetti bends and pummels his sources until their last death rattle, being not afraid of distractions and collisions. A dense, visceral and generous work... "Des Spheres" composed by Jean-Baptiste Favory. Comprising seven electronic improvisations, this piece is inspired by the movement of the seven celestial bodies closest to the earth with the sun as a central axis. Each planet is represented by two sounds: one concrete, the other synthetic. The concrete sound is not audible but modulates the synthetic sound in amplitude and frequency. The result is then processed using several effects to obtain a sound in constant evolution and partly random. Without seeking to reproduce an existing astronomic model whitch is taken for reality, the piece proposes a quasiorganic vision of what in former times was named "Thespheres" wherein the forces were realeased by the movements of celestial bodies, acted directly on mankind.

2006/2008 Tegal Records, TR0016
This time Czech-based project paid their attention to the phenomenon of pleasure from torture and violence, psychopathology quite widespread nowadays. This theme is usually utilized by power electronics projects of American school, but here the approach is completely different. Well thought-out compositions in death industrial vein, eerie samples and dismal atmosphere. When recording this album musicians used such instruments as cleaver, mallet, knives, grinder and hand saw. The album was originally released in 2006 by the Russian label Waystyx Records. This is remastered re-issue with two bonus tracks.
Sewer Election -- "Wreck" -- CD -- €10
2016 Triangle Records, TR-54, (ltd. 200)
SEWER ELECTION is a widely-acclaimed project in the noise, industrial and experimental electronic music circles. “Wreck” is without a doubt one of the heaviest works Dan Johansson has put out in the recent years. Surprisingly enough, it bears some resemblance to HEINZ HOPF (a duo consisting of Johansson and Matthias Anderssen). Unique, uncompromising harsh noise crunch and punishing junk metal abuse. The album contains many other elements of the trademark SEWER ELECTION sound – tape manipulation, layers of subtle noise residue, an array of contrasts. A masterpiece. [label info]
Sky Burial -- "Corranach" -- CD -- €10
2016 Reverse Alignment, RA-26, (ltd. 300)
As a means of giving music an expression unbound to narrowly defined genres, Michael Page created Sky Burial in 2006. Mainly dealing with noisy power electronics with project FIRE IN THE HEAD, Sky Burial entered the realms of dark ambient and sonic experimentalism. Since it's start this outfit has released several albums and we're proud to have the opportunity to release it's new opus "Corranach". The three mesmerizing tracks which comprise "Corranach" play a dichotomous dirge both grounded and ethereal. Sky Burial takes us unto a journey through internal structures and outer spaces, immersed in the Kosmische ethos. With "Corranach" Michael presents his most focused and refined work so far with a unique blend of industrial and ambient elements. [label info]
Slogun -- "A Breed Apart / The Die Song" -- CD -- €10

This is the third release in the "History of Violence" re-issue campaign and it unites two related, key entries in the early Slogun catalog. "A Breed Apart" was originally released on cassette by Slaughter Productions (SPT 86) in 1996, and it was packaged in a beautifully designed, oversized sleeve with a vellum overlay. "The Die Song" tracks are taken from the legendary Slaughter Productions six-cassette box set, "Listen And Die!" (SPT 100), from 1997. This rare, bizarrely packaged collection ("The Italian/American Power Electronics Massacre. 4 Hours And 36 Minutes Of Violent Entertainment"), was limited to 100 copies, and it also featured contributions from Iugula-Thor, Sshe Retina Stimulants, Atrax Morgue, Murder Corporation, Diktat, Discordance, Surgical Stainless Steel, Taint, Deathpile, Skin Crime, and Bacillus. Like the first two re-issue CDs (B!059 "Sacrifice Unto Me" and B!062 "Will To Kill"), the audio for this compiled and re-mastered version was prepared in Lille, France, by Jerome Nougaillon (Propergol), while John Balistreri's graphic design follows the standard that he created for the ongoing series.

Somnare -- "Bellum Esse" -- CD -- €10
2016 Lichterklang, LK032, (ltd. 270)
Neoclassic. SOMNARE is the musical incarnation of Pilar Molina (Aura Noctis, Aeldaborn) and DP Rey (Wrong, The YTriple Corporation, Neverdie), created in 2013. The idea behind SOMNARE is to dream from the perspective of your minds, a travel to the depths of your soul. Compromising the consciousness and subconscious, the percussion reflects the inner struggle of each person. The silence of its chords lead us to the most mystical darkness of our being, but at the same time the melody of the strings, takes us by through landscapes of melancholy. Nature itself inspires us, creates hope to learn and evolve again and again. There is still hope for lost souls. [label info]

Teatro Satanico -- "Der Tod In Venedig" -- CD -- €12
2016 Ufa Muzak, UFA72, (ltd. 170)
Macabre synth / Cold necro wave / Experimental. Here we have a unique release - reissue of the long sold out album, so unusual that its extravagance can only compete with the cause of such a collection of rare compositions. The album title sounds a bit pretentious, but it has very few lines of contact with famous literary and cinematographic sources. "Death in Venice" refers to the famous "Island of the Dead - San Michele", the necropolis, privileged refuge for the dead of this city on the water. This place is famous for the numerous burial places of renowed artists, and already in the second number we meet one of the "Cantos" by Ezra Pound who found his last resort in this place. Free poetry of this eminent American rebellion has to be heard, not read... music as expression, words as echoes, spoken long time ago. The Italians will never disown their sacred and forbidden figures of their culture, and the third number features lines from the monster novel, the mystery novel, unfinished, interrupted by the author's death - "Il Petrolio" by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Sound design, musical patterns, peculiar flow of images made of deadly techno rhythms and hissing layering synthesizer backgrounds. Spiral up further, another symbolic figure of Julius Evola is waiting for us. Text from the book "Meditations on the Peaks" disclosing the sacred symbolism of mountains as habitation of gods, where rulers and warriors go, where yogis achieve full liberation. The atmosphere is rarefied, so little oxygen that one has to breath deeply, feeling ringing in ears because of pressure, but the beauty has to overpower all unpleasant feelings. What next? The song with the same title as a theoretic book about suicide, we hear flappings of predatory owls in the night. From which world have these messengers come? Or was it a gondola that brought us to cypresses of San Michele? It's early to disembark, the rhythm pulls swings up and down, up and down. The original album is supplemented with three tracks, visions and insights continue. Charon hasn't yet received the payment for transportation, still lying under the deadman tongue according to the funeral rite... 9 tracks, 65 minutes, matte 4-panel A5 digipak. [press-release]

2015/2016 Fulldozer Records, FD36LP, (ltd. 150)
Fulldozer Records proudly present the vinyl version of the last album by Theodor Bastard, one of the most mysterious and mythical bands from Russia. The album name is a Latin transliteration of the Russian word for branches bearing in mind the branches of the World tree which supports the heavens, connecting the heavens, the terrestrial world, and the underworld. It's music combines elements of world music, neofolk, dark wave and trip hop. The hallmark of the album is female vocal by lead singer Yana Veva, her unique voice filled by glory and in the same time by meditative serenity and mild warmth. The musicians use classic instruments as well as electronic instruments and numerous ethnic instruments. Theodor Bastard release their albums not so often, working for months in various recording studios in several cities and countries, searching for the best sound and arrangements. The work on this album took three years with plenty of musicians taking part in it. Continuing the theme of wanderings, which was the basic idea of the previous album Oikoumene, Theodor Bastard take their listeners from hot south to the fairy northern lights. A peculiar combination of the archaic percussions and folk instruments was used during the recording. Playing unusual ethnic instruments is still an important part of Theodor Bastard creative process. Russian horn, traditional Mongol violin morin khuur, ritual tibetian horn dunchen, ancient Russian gusli, cajon, jew's harp, dulcimer (string instrument like zither) - this is just a short list of musical miracles of the album. Many musicians were engaged in creating this sound kaleidoscope. That was a serious and laborious work. [press-release]

Antlers Mulm -- "Touring The Moon Bog / The Moon Bog: Other Tours" -- 2 CS -- €12
2016 NEN Records, NEN08, (ltd. 45)
NEN Records presents a Russian edition of 'Touring the Moon Bog', the most heart-felt Antlers Mulm's album. A project by the German musician Hans Johm is formally close to the post-industrial stage. However, Johm always avoided caps lock talking, and preferred to communicate quietly, even barely audible. Surprisingly, what he says strikes a lot stronger than "direct actions". Sensitive minimalism, darkwave of schizoid accentuation - in case of Antlers Mulm genre marks are far less important than the ability to cut the listener to the quick... ‘Touring the Moon Bog’ is a class on mental arrhythmia, guided by its special meter. To some extent this is a manifesto that your soul is not entirely yours, with a hint that it does not belong to you at all. Your I is like an empty plastic bag flying through the air, it has nothing to cling to, and the appearance becomes obviousness: you have no I. All that you got: a couple of habits, a yellowed photo, two broken oak-trees and a fleeting feeling of someone’s warm exhalation on your cheek. Of someone who has no I like you do. There is only the sky that does not belong and can not belong to anyone, and the remnants of the rainbow that melt on the horizon of which you’ll forget in a moment... ‘Touring the Moon Bog’ conveys this message by a strange rhythm, which always objects to your expectations. As the rhythm pounds like raindrops from the roof into a barrel of water, you slip into its fabric and realize that you’ve been deceived. There is no rhythm to the raindrops as there is no rainbow. These songs are a hymn to invented memories. They begin from nothing and leave at the right time, which could be any other. It is not arbitrary, as a law that wasn’t written for you, most likely because you do not really exist... Antlers Mulm managed to bring up songs not intended for us, while the participants involved in the remixing and covering, made them our own, harnessed and formalized. The formalization is arguable, of course, but there is no another. [label info] Second tape contains the compilateion of cover versions and remixes made by Pertti GrÖnholm, Forgttn, Kim Ki O, Frank Machau, Antlers Mulm, Sunset Wings, Llovespell, Myrrman, Frl.Linientreu, Alien Levi, Contemplatron and Reutoff.

Harshcore & Der Einzige -- "Live Bujun Dokument | Graz | June 11th 2009" -- CS -- €7
2013 Old Bicycle Records, Crash #09
Harshcore is a duo of Tommaso Clerico and Luca Sigurta, and there is a bunch of trumpet sounds, effects, electronics, theremin, rhythms, voices and objects among them. I think much of what they do find it's origins in improvisation around some sounds and effects. Not really noise based and at its best, mainly due to the extended trumpet with echo sound, not too dissimilar to the old Throbbing Gristle sound (Heathen Earth era). There is a fine sense of drama in the sounds here, and towards the end also a bit of humor. Der Einzige is the solo project of Matteo Uggeri, who also uses trumpet, but also laptop, percussions, aerosol and screams. Here everything is a bit more monolithic in approach, single minded towards the full on noise. Many screams indeed, much more echo on the trumpet and perhaps as such a bit more alike the wave of power electronics that followed in Throbbing Gristle's footsteps, but with a some what cleaner sound.

The Haters / Hal Hutchinson -- "Xylowave 2010 / Amplifaction II" -- C-92 -- €5
2010 Der Bunker Records
The Haters are a noise and conceptual art troupe from the United States. Founded in 1979, they are one of the earliest and best-known acts in the modern noise scene. The group is primarily the work of the Hollywood, California-based artist, writer, and filmmaker GX Jupitter-Larsen, accompanied by a constantly changing lineup of other members... Hal Hutchinson has previously released several of his scrap metal sound recordings on labels such as Freak Animal Records, Unrest Productions and many others. In the last couple of years he has moved to incorporate analogue synthesizers, field recordings and other elements into his work, collaborating with projects such as Mania and Shift amongst others. These recordings are released on Hal’s Der Bünker label. Here, Hal presents a recording made entirely of scrap metal and concrete wreckage with a very primitive sounding end result. [Auf Abwegen]

This album, just as many others, is characterized by the use of many styles and frivolous game with composition... Electro easily turns into rock and speedy, almost punk-style crossover; majestic ballads in psychedelic rock style with baroque and academic arrangements merge with electroacoustics, noise and industrial... Some songs are based on harmonies built on multi-layered gnashing microtonal feedback loops, created by the sound processing units... This new album was recorded entirely on vintage authentic technics, without any computer sounds. Aside from lots of analogue synthesizers and organs, vocoders and harmonisers, spring reverbs and tape delays, we can hear lots of author's metal percussion... [label info]

Christian Stadsgaard's project what pre-dates Posh Isolation label. Several tapes and some other formats 2006 onwards. Very lo-fi recording what appears to be guitar noise and electronics barely able to penetrate microphone. It sounds as if sounds basically compete which manages to come through, and it gives recording charming broken & vibrant feel. However, tape is hardly anything that special or memorable compared to good stuff of Posh Isolation! Lo-fi drone noise one side, extreme painful feedback b-side. Competes with Prurient "arrowhead" with this... [Freak Animal]

Zeh, Jason -- "Polarity" -- C-50 -- €6
2012 Handmade Birds, HB-042, (ltd. 100)
This cassette focuses on the inaudible electromagnetic fields produced by the motors of a variety of cassette players. Side A is a slightly modified live recording made during a show at the Robinwood Concert House in Toledo, OH on October 9th, 2011. It involves the use of telephone coil pickups to play the electromagnet fields of cassette transcription machines, a cassette 4-track, a cassette walkman, a microcassette recorder, and a tabletop cassette player. The end of the piece features the use of "cassettes" that, instead of tape, have built-in contact mics to play the sound of the uptake reels spinning and dragging a short length of leader... Side B was culled from a series of recordings made at home during the Summer of 2011 in preparation for playing this new work in a live setting. It uses recordings of the electromagnetic fields produced by cassette players as source material. This material was then subjected to a variety of tape-based processes of manipulation... If you love cassettes, and have never owned a work by Jason Zeh, you are missing out. NOBODY IN THE WORLD is exploring such depths with tape-as-instrument as this master. We can only hope that someday a live DVD is made of one of Jason's performances... Edition: 100 CS50 Pro tape, red shell with white print. [label info]

V/A -- "The Moon Bog: Other Tours" -- CS -- €8
2016 NEN Records, NEN11, (ltd. 33)
NEN Records presents an international remix/covers compilation to Antlers Mulm 'Touring the Moon Bog' album. Antlers Mulm, a project by the German musician Hans Johm, is formally close to the post-industrial stage. However, Johm always avoided caps lock talking, and preferred to communicate quietly and even barely audible. Surprisingly, what he says strikes a lot stronger than "direct actions". Sensitive minimalism, darkwave of schizoid accentuation - in case of Antlers Mulm genre marks are far less important than the ability to cut the listener to the quick... 'Touring the Moon Bog' is a class on mental arrhythmia, guided by its special meter. To some extent this is a manifesto that your soul is not entirely yours, with a hint that it does not belong to you at all. Your I is like an empty plastic bag flying through the air, it has nothing to cling to, and the appearance becomes obviousness: you have no I. All that you got: a couple of habits, a yellowed photo, two broken oak-trees and a fleeting feeling of someone's warm exhalation on your cheek. Of someone who has no I like you do. There is only the sky that does not belong and can not belong to anyone, and the remnants of the rainbow that melt on the horizon of which you'll forget in a moment... 'Touring the Moon Bog' conveys this message by a strange rhythm, which always objects to your expectations. As the rhythm pounds like raindrops from the roof into a barrel of water, you slip into its fabric and realize that you've been deceived. There is no rhythm to the raindrops as there is no rainbow. These songs are a hymn to invented memories. They begin from nothing and leave at the right time, which could be any other. It is not arbitrary, as a law that wasn't written for you, most likely because you do not really exist... Antlers Mulm managed to bring up songs not intended for us, while the participants involved in the remixing and covering, made them our own, harnessed and formalized. The formalization is arguable, of course, but there is no another. [label info] This tape contains the compilateion of cover versions and remixes made by Pertti GrÖnholm, Forgttn, Kim Ki O, Frank Machau, Antlers Mulm, Sunset Wings, Llovespell, Myrrman, Frl.Linientreu, Alien Levi, Contemplatron and Reutoff.

V/A -- "Seven Towers of Shaitan" -- CS -- €5
2016 Oriental Prophecy, OrPr-01, (ltd. 50)
According to the Eastern myths of Abrahamic monotheism, in places where the seven fallen angels have been overthrown in antedeluvian times were erected cult constructions known as Towers of Shaitan... According to René Guénon, the Towers of Shaitan were a kind of antithesis of sevel poles (aqtaab) of Sufi tradition, sanctuaties of the opposite sign, "places of power" providing black magicians a communication with the Prince of Darkness and supporting the centers of counter-initiation guided by the "men of Satan" (awliya al-shaytaani), devil worshippers in true sense of word, those who prepare the arrival of the Antichrist (al-masikh al-dajjal)... The theme of Towers of Shaitan has been often discussed by Guénon in his correspondence in 30-ies, from which we can learn the approximate location of the Towers: "They [i.e. Towers of Satan] are placed in a form of arc going around Europe in some distance: one is located nearby Niger, a place known for the most dreadful sorcerers wvwn in ancient Egyptian time; second one - in Sudan, in a mountain region populated by "lycanthropes" [people who are able to turn into wolves] in amount of approximately 20.000 people (I've met the witnesses of this phenomenon here); third and fourth are in Asia Minor - one in Sirya, another in Mesopotamia [to the East from the Iraqi city of Mossul]; fifth is in Turkestan; and two others should be located further North, closer to the Urals or in Wetern Siberia, but I have to admit that until now I haven't been able to find out their precise georgaphic location..."

7PM Ritual -- ":08:16:02:" -- CD -- €10
2015 Lichterklang, LK029, (ltd. 300)
7pm Ritual is the new project of the founding Stein members Norbert Strahl, Nic Sender and Oliver Sittig who reunited for spontaneous jam-session after a couple of years, which finally resulted in “:08:16:02”. The album is a dedicated and conceptional piece of work, based on one of the biggest tragedies of the past millennium. Musicalwise 7pm Rituals debut is the perfect blend of songs, influenced by Neofolk and orchestral, cinematic sounds bands that sometimes remind of early recordings of In The Nursery, but with a more folky edge. The songwriting as well as the sound quality are outstanding and there’s no doubt that 7pm Ritual and their musical diversity will leave a deep impact throughout the different genres mentioned before.

Altieri, Corrado / Gianluca Favaron -- "The System Of Objects" -- CD -- €10
2013 Silentes Minimal Editions, sme 1361, (ltd. 225)
Silentes presents a new collaborative effort between two prominent artists of Italy's electronic and experimental scene, Corrado Altieri (Candor Chasma, Monosonik, Uncodified) and Gianluca Favaron (ab'she, Under The Snow, Z'been). Inspired by Jean Baudrillard's essay of the same name, "The System of Objects" offers seven compositions combining field recordings, analogue textures, computer music and concrиte sounds. Altieri e Favaron dig deep in the unconscious of the french philosopher, devising a hypothetical music score of his manifesto on the relations between objects universe and consumer society ideologies: drones and digital pulses, processed tapes and multi-layered frequencies make for a voyage to the borders of ambient, noise and radical experiments.

1995/2012 Power And Steel, PAS17
After it's first limited CD release in 1995 this album became a much sought after item and finally the re-release of BAD SECTOR's classical first full time record sees the light of the day now. With AMPOS Massimo Magrini set a standard in deeply emotional dark ambient noise and many of his following releases went in that vein of evocative intensity and monolithic sound.

Cardboard sleeve. [label info]

Bad Sector & Astro -- "Idio Blast" -- CD -- €10
2005 Insofar Vapor Bulk, IVBCD10, (ltd. 500)
Initial material for this released was recorded by Hiroshi Hasegawa (Astro) and then manipulated and re-organized by Massimo Magrini (Bad Sector). Resulting sound of the album reminds something Aube-like: attenuate abstract electronic waves with highly detalized structure, nothing like traditional Bad Sector sound at all. The artwork of this release deserves separate description: it's a cardboard meccano kit with engineering instruction, by following it's notes you can assemble technic-like construction of decent size, in which the CD with booklet should be put. Besides the album itself, the CD contains some extra-material from Astro in ogg format (player installer can be found on CD as well), screensaver and several wallpapers for your computer desktop.
Bad Sector & Astro -- "Idioblast" -- CD -- €10
2005/2012 Power & Steel, PAS 32
In 2005 a small Russian label, Insofar Vapour Bulk, proposed to Massimo Magrini to work on a recording made by Hiroshi Hasegawa (Astro). It was a "drone-like" sound of a few minutes, Despite the difficult nature of the assignment, Massimo loved the very static and cryptic structure of the original. So, starting from this basic recording (without using additional sounds) he developed a 45 minutes long suite: it was like using a magic audio lens which revealed a myriad of hidden details in a microscopic world. The original Astro sound can still be heard at the beginning and at the end of the suite. The re-edition comes in beautiful cardboard case with silver-embossed printing. [press-release]

Becuzzi, Gianluca & Turra, Luigi -- "In Winter" -- CD -- €7
2012 Silentes Minimal Editions, sme 1257
One more new Gianluca Becuzzi release on Silentes, this time in collaboration with Luigi Turra. Composer of musique concrete and graphic designer whose main interest is the musical balance between silence and the tactile perception of sound, Turra’s works were published by labels such as and/OAR, Unfathomless, Non Visual Objects, SmallVoices and many others. A lot has already been written about Becuzzi, here we would just like to remember his historic Darkwave / Industrial project Limbo, his more recent Kinetix and Noise Trade Company incarnations, and the long collaboration he carried on with Fabio Orsi. "In Winter" was recorded between 2008 and 2010, with Becuzzi mostly taking care of field recordings and programming, and Turra giving his own contribution playing acoustic guitar and piano. Light as the snowflakes that entitle them, these nine compositions offer dreamy atmospheres that rely on minimal structures and evoke visions of lonely and lazily wintry landscapes. Music for the heart and the mind, delicate representations of quiet moods translated into harmonic sequences that combine environmental synthesis with influences of a refined sophistication.

Con-Dom -- "We Who Were Living Are Now Dying" -- DVD -- €11
2014 The Epicurean, cure.4 / Peripheral Records, PR020 / Silken Tofu, stx.31, (ltd. 222)
Mike Dando/CON-DOM has operated in the multimedia domains incorporating sound, film and performance since his early years. He confronts the audience in extreme ways, touching on taboo subjects suppressed or reduced to primitive stereotypes by the mass media of today. With a devastating barrage of noise he traces the unconscious religious subtext of modern mass society, crossfades religious and political (border) phenomena and relates them with violent and pathological aspects. In the six super 8 short films, created in the 1980s to early 1990s and finally digitally restored in 2013, daily routine scenes are juxtaposed with grainy photos of criminals, dictators and clerics and book pages bearing crude, racist interpretations of Scripture, filmed line by line. Packaging: DVD digi pack, High quality 400 chromolux paper, includes woven patch with Con-Dom logo. [press-release]

Crumer, Jason -- "Ottoman Black" -- CD -- €10
2008 Hospital Productions, HOS-215, (ltd. 500)
"Ottoman Black" is an album of midnight drones and true noise. Using powerfully clear electronics as a base for declarative noise bursts, Crumer manipulates the sounds with a resounding animosity. In the vein of Pedestrian Deposit and Air Conditioning, Crumer yields his mean streak to an array of silences over the course of the album. The theme here is personal relations; tracks like "Betrayal After Betrayal" have a conversational quality, both the screams and the muffles, the physicality. "Where Were You" is an actionist-influenced piece of torture. There's nothing not painful here, especially the quiet; the peaks are almost a relief. Ottoman Black is a stern and unforgiving universe. [press-release]

Cyclotimia -- "Wasteland" -- CD -- €7
2002/2005 Irond, IROND CD 05-1065
"We started to record 'Wasteland' in the end of 1999. We were inspired by the album 'The City' by Vangelis. A view of the Greek composer on modern city looked unreasonably "optimistic" to us... The idea of creating a soudtrack more suitable for contemporary megalopolis was born immediately. Impenetrable veil of stone buildings, blinding neon advertising lights, continual informational streams, supermarkets, stockmarkets, all-round crowds of ever scurrying people and cars... This was the picture of our "city". The recording took about twelve months, and by the beginning of 2001 the work was completely done. Listening to 'Wasteland' after five years we tend to consider that despite some technical imperfection our goal has been reached. It's worth mentioning that there's something more in common with Vangelis' work - we deliberately used some same sound libraries of the BBC company which sound in 'The City' album too. It's a strange case when the CD can apply both to the fans of "old school" electronics, i.e. Klaus Schulze, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, and to the lovers of ominous darkness like Raison d'Etre, In Slaughter Natives, Lustmord, Bad Sector, Coil, Skinny Puppy." [from the authors] The album was originall released in 2002 by now defunct German label Stateart, and in 2005 reissued by Russian company Irond.

Der Tod Und Das Madchen -- "d-Moll" -- CD -- €10
2012 Lichterklang, LK007, (ltd. 300)
DER TOD UND DAS MÄDCHEN started out in 2009 finally presenting their debut now. The album "d-Moll" is a musical anthology of long forgotten lyricists, longing back to the death of Goethe. The elegies all evolving from the 19th century reveal the sadness and the pain of the loss of close relatives. Melancholy and transience, deathwish and madness, dream and reality cristalize themselves out of these thoughts and build the centre of "d-Moll". The area of romanticism, especially the so called black romanticism, focusses around these motives that are now being displayed by the album. Inspired by componists of the romantic times the extinct poetry is based on the dark and melancholic tunes of a piano, "Du Verwaistes Haus", based on a composition by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, being the only exception, standing out as an example for the decline of that classical epoch from it's instrumental basis. C.P.E. Bach was regarded to be the umbral composer even during his lifetime by the veracuty of his father. The closing words by the German imperator Wilhelm II. from 1904 build the end of the album, questioning the human arrogance with his words "the world is so big und we are so small, how come that we expect to circle everything around us".

Proper follow up to their debut LP 'Solar Bridge', 'EMERALDS' takes the thick drone sound of that LP into an even more abstract and strange place. Visual music that lifts the listener up and transports them through tubes of sound occasionally to be swept into the opposite direction by an unexpected entrance into another world entirely. An intense journey that drops you off in a place just beyond death. Field recording contributions from Aaron Dilloway. Mastered for CD by James Plotkin. Contains a 16 page full color booklet featuring photo artwork by the band themselves. [label info]

La Pietra Lunare -- "s/t" -- CD -- €10
2015 Lichterklang, LK027, (ltd. 260)
La Pietra Lunare's debut is a concept album dedicated to the mysteries of Italy. It tells how, in the years between the two wars, in some small villages of the south it was believed that magic rites and amulets could have some form of will on daily life. Taking inspiration from some cult Italian books, such as Tommaso Landolfi's homonymous novel, these songs show how neofolk music has an esoteric origin through their real popular beliefs. Recorded in five years, the album includes guests from the italian neofolk scene, such as Egida Aurea, ZSP, Lupi Gladius and Antiqua Lunae. Their genre could be a strange kind of neofolk called "verist post-folk". [label info]
Macronympha -- "Studio 95" -- CD -- €10
2010/2013 Triangle Records, TR-51 / Cerosene / Outcry
Personally, I don't quite favor the bands with long discography lists, although MACRONYMPHA is an exception because you can never get too much of it. The CD contains studio material recorded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1995. Those 30 cassette copies that were originally released are now re-released in the CDs with a new mastering. Embarking on this multi-layered, heavy vintage noise be prepared for a lot of dirt, electronic signals, hissings and falling to pieces cassette tapes. Classics. [press-release]

It contains retrospective compilation of cassette tracks dated 1989-1992. "This compilation is probably the more ambient of any Maeror Tri compilation, going for more textural guitar and drift than the rumbling, backwards-chord sound. Comes in an amazing brown artboard case and embroidered cloth sleeve, four-page booklet inside inspired by rough layouts of cassette-years past gives plenty of text to absorb with the sounds. Amazing sounds demand amazing packages and we wanted to make sure this would be a treasure for all who were ever interested in Maeror Tri." [label info]

Navia -- "Smert' Rozy (Death of a Rose)" -- C-60 -- €7
2016 BioSonar^Lo-End, 054, (ltd. 13)
From the dusty sacks of nonexistence we've put out this recording, checked it's level of uselessness and decided to make an edition of 13 copies. There is very little artistic component in these tracks, and nothing from the original sound of the project: no catacomb clangor and howls, only tape drone fainted with time... maybe it was a backing tape prepared for future mixdown, maybe some failed re-recording of endlessly processed, reverbed and distorted cassettes, but around half of it's time there are mostly magnetic tape artifacts. There is a whole box of similar cassettes with reversed tapes, distorted and delayed sounds of classical music and new age, but this is all intermediate material, which later has been turned into some layers of early Lunar Abyss recordings. The recording is dubbed on Soviet cassettes "Svema MK-60", cardboard box is decorated with Soviet pocket calendars. [label info]

Schnitzler, Conrad -- "Windvogel" -- CD -- €8
2009 Waystyx, WR44, (ltd. 187)
Conrad Schnitzler is a genuine legend in the krautrock and electronic music worlds. Schnitzler studied under Joseph Beuys before joining an early Tangerine Dream. Their first album Electronic Meditation shows a band highly influenced by Schnitzler's unique, singular approach. Schnitzler left Tangerine Dream to form Kluster with friends Dieter Moebius and Hans Joachim Roedelius. When Schnitzler left Kluster they changed their name to Cluster eventually merging with Michael Rother (of Neu!) to form Harmonia, a group who Brian Eno once called the most important rock group on the planet. Schnitzler also founded Eruption in 1970 along with Klaus Schultz, Manuel Gottsching (Ash Ra Tempel), and Klaus Freudigmann... Looking back at Conrad Schnitzler's career it becomes obvious that he was an architecht who helped draw the blueprints for some very significant musical movements. Perhaps overlooked, or at least desperately underappreciated, it hasn't slowed Schnitzler down. Since leaving Kluster Conrad Schnitzler has composed dillegently for electronics and piano. Now located in Dallgow Germany he continues to accumulate equiptment and recordings of what he says is "cold, hard electonic sound."

While the German neofolk was in its early days the year 2001 saw the foundation of the German neofolk-duo :werra:. Over the next couple of years several songs saw the light of the day, all written at several bonfires within nature’s palm. They were recorded and reworked between the years 2003 – 2005 and due to private circumstances it took some more time before some of them were used for a number of compilations which gained a lot of interest. The request for a complete album became so overwhelming that now, eleven years after :werra:’s foundation, the debut „MMI-MMV“ was released by the German label Lichterklang. The eight songs reveal the spirit of the early German neofolk, that means a return to the traditions of our ancestors as well as the search for own cultural identity and the longing for a new and hopefully better world. The digipak-album contains all material thus far recorded by :werra:, including 2 songs with Cornelius Waldner (Sagittarius) as a guest-musician. The mastering took place at Luftschutzkerker in 2012. This is the re-release of the debut album including 5 unreleased bonus-tracks. [label info]
