The Sand Rays
CD (ltd. 300)
After the dissolution of The Infant Cycle, Jim DeJong went on a hiatus from production, and disappeared into seclusion. However, after a few months, an offer to score a feature film appeared, which spurred him back into production. A lot of flexible basic tracks were produced during this time, that could be fitted together for different scenes. Unfortunately, the film production ground to a halt, but being active again caused DeJong to begin his new project, The Sand Rays, and adapt some of the film score ideas into something that could be released and heard. A number of EPs were released on DeJong's label The Ceiling in tiny editions, under a number of similar names (The Sand Rays, Ray Sands, Sandra Y.), which are hard to find. The sounds emanate from an assortment of instruments and sound makers including carved runout grooves, bass guitar, bird cages, shortwave radio, and more, cooked into a choppy stew of drones and mood.
The cover photo reflects its contents. Up close, a pretty photo of sumac, but pulls back to reveal a more troubled location. This location was outside DeJong's old studio, a brownsfield too toxic for people, but a safe place for the vegetation to flourish.
The material could be considered an extension of the final inclinations of The Infant Cycle, such as the "Drop-Out Center" album (2012, Zhelezobeton). A new chapter in the same book? Now we bring together the rare first four EPs in an easier to find and digest package, with full colour sleeve artwork. Eight interlocking tracks. Play it straight through, or random, or repeat.
2 CD (ltd. 300)
At last! The first major solo release from Otzepenevshiye in 11 years of the band's existence! The project was shaped in 2006 by Evgeniy Voronovskiy (Cisfinitum), Dmitriy Zubov (Hypnoz, Zuboff Sex Shop) and Ivan Napreenko (Sal Solaris, Θ16), but after some time transformed into a duo of Ivan and Arnold_pR (Reutoff, Myrrman). Otzepenevshiye have recorded many compositions published on compilations on various occasions by such labels as Heliophagia, Ewers Tonkunst, Old Europa Cafe, etc. The only full-length album "For a Knife" was created in collaboration with the band Vir' (2013, Zhelezobeton Distribution Division). And only now many scattered pieces, like cold drops of condensate, have accomplished their cycle and gathered in two dazzingly freezing snowflakes.
Powerful and catchy guitar riffs, relentlessly sharp industrial rhythmics, minimalistic pads and authentic field recordings – these are the lattice points of the sound of Otzepenevshiye. The need to use understandable terms makes us turn to such tags as industrial doom metal, drone-doom or doomgaze, but anyway we can't avoid the word "doom" here. Yes, this music has darkness inside, there's suffering, there's a feel of real experience, but also a clear conscious gaze towards the other side of the rubicon. Otzepenevshiye know how to get to the very depths and see the blackness that contains the infinite cosmic absolute.
Apart from solo recordings, the second disc features tracks created in collaboration with Circle Of Unexisted and Vir' and remakes of compositions by Banda Chetyryokh and Thergothon. The material of this album was released in small cassette editions by NEN Records, including several bonus tracks. The track-list of this double-CD edition was specially adjusted by the musicians for the sake of maximum immersion.
CS (ltd. 55)
Vetrophonia began its history in 1987 with the recording of an eponymous album, released on tape by the Ultra label much later in 1996. After that Ultra published five more Vetrophonia cassettes, the last being a split-release with the Japanese noise project K2 in 2000. All the later releases were made on compact discs, DVDs and small edition CD-Rs.
In this regard, we're unspeakably happy to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the project by publishing their new material in the cassette format! "Russian Universal Robots" is a lecture on the influence of robots on human mind. Like all other Vetrophonia recordings, this is an elaborately constructed collage made of all sorts of sounds, noises, orchestral parts, samples and quotes, depicting the image of robots in Soviet art with a humorous undertone.
Majdanek Waltz / Denis Tretyakov / The Noktulians
CD (ltd. 300)
Aleister Crowley's poems translated into Russian were first published in 2017 – the same year we release the album on which musicians inspired by his works create their sonic dedication. This album was created by Russian dark scene musicians who have never met before but have been following each other's activities for a long time – Majdanek Waltz and Denis Tretyakov.
The latter professes his own religion which implies faith in a mole as an underground deity. Being the leader of two bands – "Tserkov' Detstva (Church of Childhood)" and "Bratya Tuluzovy (The Tuluzov Brothers)" – for the first time he acted as a reciter of poems. Majdanek Waltz from Ryazan' remembered their early musical experiments and primary sources of inspiration. Priceless support was granted by the secret musical project The Noktulians. The final black balance was masterfully adjusted by the member of Reutoff and Otzepenevshiye – ArSch aka Myrrman.
Apart from all other obvious jubilees and important round dates, 2017 marks the 70-year anniversary of Aleister Crowley's death. This recording should close the gap of the jubilee list of the year. Instead of the always fashionable red stars better use this black digipak. Put it in windows, nail it to the front door, take it with you wherever you go. "Every man and every woman is a star".
300 copies in glossy 4-panel digipak, released by kultFRONT with the support of ZHELEZOBETON Distribution Division.

2017 Terror, TR-47, (ltd. 300)
The very first thought to offer a release to Arkhe came during artist's visit in Lithuania, Armageddon Descends festival. More than a half of autumn has passed and this CD is finally out.

Just like you cannot grasp the calm, powerful, but frightening existence of taurus when you meet it eye to eye in an endless silence of the universe. [label info]

During the recording sessions for his most recent regular album "The Healing", Michał Śliwa aka Echoes of Yul recorded much more material than appeared on the album. Some of these unpublished recordings appeared on the "The Healing Session" cassette issued in the strict limit of 50 copies. The material was quickly distributed among the collectors and practically until now was unavailable in the physical form. Since the music is as interesting as on the regular album "The Healing", it could not be forgotten. Today, in a slightly refreshed version, with minor changes, it is rereleased, this time on a CD. The album is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 300 copies. [label info]

As the third one in this series is the recording which, as the title indicates, is the effect of a collaboration with another project from the Silesian region - MOAN. All the sounds were interestingly developed by both artists. Each of them exchanged sound snippets to arrange them in their own way. Then the entirety was subjected to the final mix and mastering to appear on a CDR back in 2003. The album was reissued in an ecopak and is limited to 200 copies only. [label info]

Hybryds -- "The Ritual Of The Rave" -- 2 CD -- €14
1995/2017 Zoharum, ZOHAR 151-2, (ltd. 500)
For the past several years Zoharum has been reissung the subsequent albums of the Belgian independent scene legend, Hybryds; so far five has been released. "The Ritual of the Rave" is the sixth installment in this series and is an expanded version of the 1995 album. It has not lost its freshness in those years. It is electronica with strong ambient and ethnic music influences locked in six long, slowly developing compositions. Here there are rhythmic elements directly taken from techno (which announced further changes in the Belgian project's repertoire.) "Icarus" or "Sjamanistic Dream" are still classics in the Hybryds catalogue... This is also one of the expanded editions of their classic albums. The second disc shows what Hybryds was like at concerts during the period when the recordings were made (live tracks compose the first five tracks recorded in 1995). In addition, we have three studio compositions here here. The first one belongs to the collaborative Hydra project, whose only official recording appeared on the compilation "The Uncertain Future" on Antler. The other two are the early recordings from 1988 by Magthea with Mark Burghgreave of Klinik. One of them, "Octahedron", appeared on the absolutely first single of the project... The album has been digitally remastered from the original master tapes by none else but Sandy Nys, who also provided the cover based on the previous editions. The CDs are housed in a digipak sleeve and the album is strictly limited to 500 copies. [label info]
Jarl -- "Negative Rotation / Intensive Fracture" -- 2 CD -- €14
2017 Zoharum, ZOHAR 152-2, (ltd. 250)
After the critically acclaimed (and almost sold-out) collaborative album with Envenomist, Jarl returns to Zoharum fold with the next release. It is the first in the series of albums collecting rare works of Erik Jarl known for his involvement with IRM and Skin Area apart from his solo work. His own compositions are an exquisite mix of static ambient with strong influence of drone, noise or post-industrial electronica in general... This double CD is a reissue of two cassettes originally released by Abisko. They were recorded on a Fostex 8-track recorder. Both tapes sound very different. ”Negative Rotation” is cold and monotonous, but with some changes in sounds that repeats themselves, while ”Intensive Fracture” is improvised psychedelic floating noise. Both recordings were done with analogue synthesizers and analogue effects. This double CD also contains five bonus tracks from different compilations... The CDs are housed in an ecopak sleeve and the edition is strictly limited to 250 copies. [label info]
Kubota, Kazuma / Mei Zhiyong -- "Session June.12.2016" -- CD -- €10
2017 [...]dotsmark, ooo-32, (ltd. 300)
Noise. Kazuma Kubota is the noise artist who is gathering support from various strata, and Mei Zhiyong is the most important figure of modern Chinese noise music. This piece of work is the live recording of a 2016 studio session that came about from a chance encounter of the Japanese and Chinese modern noise artists. It is a collaboration of a high purity that fuses together the synchronicity, which can be felt from the two artists' solo work, as a tight and hard noise. I think this is an important piece that presents the current Japanese and Chinese noise. [label info]

Mammoth Ulthana -- "s/t" -- CD -- €10
2013 Zoharum, ZOHAR 048-2 / Huta Artzine, HUTA_SND001, (ltd. 500)
Mammoth Ulthana is a sound-concept project based on a combination of traditional acoustic instruments, such as an oriental gong set, bells, animal horns, pipes, ethnic drums or singing bowls, with various sounds generated by computer software. This blend creates a sort of unique and intense musical space build on a strong basis and filled with many unforeseen sound events. The main objective of this project is mutual interpenetration of two acoustic and electronic sound worlds. Mammoth Ulthana is based on the ancient world ways. Hundreds of centuries ago, in the previous era when life was a battle for survival, the Mammoth Ulthana tribe wandered to the north. It was a community made up of druids, shamans and paladins of the Nature in which everyone gained knowledge and the power to maintain inner balance by entering the spiritual world of sound. Ulthana Mammoths were mediators in their culture, they communicated with the spirits, both living and dead alike and including the spirits of the deceased, on behalf of the community to alleviate unrest, unsettled issues, and to deliver gifts. Album packaged in 3-panel digipack. [label info]
Maninkari -- "L'Océan Rêve Dans Sa Loisiveté <
2017 Zoharum, ZOHAR 153-2, (ltd. 300)
Three years after the release of "Continuum Sonore Part 7>14" back in 2014, the remarkable French duo Maninkari returns to Zoharum catalogue with their new offering. Just like the title says, the new album is a continuation of the recordings entitled "L'Océan Rêve Dans Sa Loisiveté". Once again, the duo proves that they are unmatched in creating unbelievable and unclassifiable sound texture... "L'Océan Rêve Dans Sa Loisiveté, Second Session" is much based on improvisation and leaves room for more melodies, especially for viola, the resonances of the bodhran and its repetitive rhythms gives access to a form of trance and have a character of composition. This album with the subjective title transports us in a frenetic universe where the sea mother of idleness reigns in all power, land and sea form a vibrant balance. The voluntary control of certain melodies is felt through cymbalom and santoor and sharp long ethereal resonances. The voluntary reverberation of certain instruments resounds like a dream prayer... The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies. [label info]
Moan / Genetic Transmission -- "Dedicated to Luigi Russolo" -- CD -- €10
2004/2017 Zoharum, ZOHAR 150-2, (ltd. 200)
The fourth installment of the GT Archive Series is the split release by MOAN and GENETIC TRANSMISSION. Tomasz Twardawa and Rafał Sądej wanted to dedicate their music to Luigi Russolo, a composer who greatly influenced the creation of what we now call the urban music... The album consists of two long compositions, one by each project, respectively MOAN (Men at Work) and GENETIC TRANSMISSION (Przebudzenie Miasta). Although artists perform in their own completely different way, their music on this album sounds very consistent. It is worth mentioning that the first composition was a sound installation during the exhibition "People at Work" which took place at the Museum of the City of Jawor in 2004. Originally, the material was released on CDR in 2004. Today, Rafał Sądej remastered his new CD version in 2017... The album was reissued in an ecopak and is limited to 200 copies only. [label info]
Murmurists -- "I Am You, Dragging Halo" -- CD -- €10
2016 Zoharum, ZOHAR 121-2, (ltd. 300)
This album, 'I Am You, Dragging Halo', is the second in a nominal trilogy of works; very much the sequel to the earlier 'I Cannot Tell You Where I Am Until I Love You' (released by Alrealon in 2013) and a direct precusor to the already in-process 'i,m [sic], W/e'. Recorded in five countries and almost three years in the making, it features the voice talents of Bryan Lewis Saunders, Pixyblink, Annie Dee, Sharon Gal, David Cunliffe and Anton Mobin, as well as contributions from a range of fine musicians, including Mark Browne, Paulo Chagas and Paul Mimlitsch. The album is housed in a 3-panel ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies. [label info]
Muslimgauze -- "Wish Of The Flayed" -- CD -- €12
2008/2017 Aquarellist, aquarel 41-17, (ltd. 300)
Previously released by Muslimtapes, France for free download from arabbox.free.fr in 2008. Original description said: "Time to come out of the old dusty box for an album by Muslimgauze named 'Wish of the Flayed' that has for a long time remained under wraps. Bryn Jones himself gave this album on cassette tape to Steven Wilson (Bass Communion) during their first meeting on the 3rd of june 1996; the album having been recorded the day before. (One day for making a whole album is not so surprising for Muslimgauze..). The master DAT had, seemingly, not been sent to any label, so this recording is the only proof of the existence of the album. Two tracks were used with different durations on the album 'Fatah Guerilla' (first and last tracks), the others being totally exclusive."

2017 La Nouvelle Alliance, L.N.A.013 / OPN, OPNCD0033, (ltd. 300)

Oorchach -- "Ontologia" -- CD -- €10
2017 Terror, TR-49, (ltd. 300)
Industrial. After more than 10 years, one of the most unique Lithuanian industrial projects releases a disc of autumnish audial melancholy. Long wordless compositions, rising the morning mist every time you spin the record. Trembling archaic journey through the listener's senses. No words and no need for them. There are just guidelines in the fog. [label info]
Phurpa -- "Ya Tog Rid Pa'i Gyer" -- 2 CD -- €14
2017 Zoharum, ZOHAR 145-2, (ltd. 500)
This double album is the successor to the previous release entitled “Chöd” from nearly a year ago. The new release shows how Phurpa constantly transforms itself through their own musical exploration as well as personal spiritual development. Apart from intensive concerts, its members are famous for their long meditation trainings/sessions. This constant movement, the exploration of various techniques and discovering new inspirations in eastern culture makes Phurpa musicians more and more eager to use traditional instruments in addition to their distinctive “rgyud-skad” singing, thus enriching the already familiar formula. By emphasizing the sacred and spiritual nature of their activity, they seek to enrich it in such a way that the listener can find the novum, bearing in mind that not only the aesthetic but very spiritual world of the ancient deities of the Bön tradition is particularly important. The title, referring to the magical quest for the universe, should set the direction for the interpretation, or be merely a pretext or an invitation to this mystical journey... The album consists of two discs with over 90 minutes of music. It is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 500 copies. [label info]
Ruins Of Melancholia / Lyudi Na Ldu -- split -- CD-R -- €5
Ambient / Experimental. Split of two Russian projects. Ruins Of Melancholia "Subtle Whisper of Oblivion" is a 38-min atmospheric track soaked in strage gritty sounds, iridescences and resonances. The track is quite abstract, cold and alienated... Lyudi Na Ldu "Frozen Day" - 24 minutes and a half, here the atmosphere is more dense and dynamic, with an industrial touch. Synthetic vibrations come and go, sometimes condensing in thick clouds of sound, sometimes dissolving in misty haze of echoes.
Schlienz, Gunter -- "Autumn" -- CD -- €10
2016 Zoharum, ZOHAR 133-2, (ltd. 250)
Günter Schlienz is a musician deriving from the German experimental underground. He has been an active musician for over 25 years. For 20 years, he has been a part of an ambient / post-rock project Navel. He releases music in analogue formats as Cosmic Winnetou. But above all he constructs synthesizers which he also plays... An example of his synthesizer music is another album in his discography entitled "Autumn" and inspired by the three autumn months. So is also the number of compositions that slowly whisk ahead, like brown leaves falling from the trees. Their organic nature is underlined by guest parts of French horn and cymbals. The sequential nature of sounds from modular synthesizer corresponds perfectly with the autumn musings and the slow pace of life... The album "Autumn" is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 250 copies. [label info]
Schlienz, Gunter -- "Book Of Dreams" -- CD -- €10
2017 Zoharum, ZOHAR 148-2, (ltd. 250)
Günter Schlienz, one of the leading creators of modular electronica placed at the intersection of ambient and new age, gained positive reviews with his last album, "Autumn", the first one released on Zoharum. Now he comes back with a reissue of "Book of Dreams". First released in a small amount of 100 copies on vinyl, it was sold out in just a few weeks. Now this excellent album is back in expanded form, complemented with two additional tracks. It is a surprising release, because it is completely different from "Autumn", consisting of shorter recordings with much more dynamic... Original sleeve notes for the album: "Book of Dreams" was inspired by notes about dreams I wrote down shortly after I woke up from my sleep. In those strange moments between fantasy and reality, when you can still remember the images and feelings of the dream before they are rubbed off by daytime thoughts and troubles. The compositions which can be heard on this album trying to recapture those images and feelings mixed with a second thought, kind of a sober interpretation of the sometimes wild and furious adventures with somnia... The album "Book of Dreams" is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 250 copies. [label info]

Moon Far Away -- "Belovodie" -- LP -- €15
2014 Shadowplay Records, SPR-LP-001, (ltd. 250)
Forming ten years ago in Russia, Moon Far Away released their first album "Lado World" in 1997 and it has been recognized as the first gothic Russian release. "Belovodie" is their first album since the "Sator" album, released back in 2000. Their music is deeply influenced by the classic Russian folk music (the band also use some traditional instruments) but the band decided to blend the traditional sounds with electronic moments and with a darker atmosphere. In this way tracks like the opening "Na zore", "Zhito zhala" or "Volna shumit" are more influenced by new wave and gothic music while "Sobiraetse liubeznoy", "Iz-za gor", "Ekoy vania" or the following "Zvetiki" sound more folk and traditional. The effect created by this alternance of modern and traditional melodies is interesting and evidence that mixing different ideas is always a good thing. The forty six minutes of the album create a sort of ritualistic atmosphere that blend tension and calmness at the same time. [Chain D.L.K.]
Phurpa -- "Rituals Of Bon II" -- LP -- €17
2017 Zoharum, ZOHAR 146-1, (ltd. 300)
Phurpa is an extraordinary artistic and cultural project, not only on a European scale. For years, its members have been exploring the traditions of Bön – the magical practices of ancient Tibet, Iran and even Egypt, and they take it closer to their listeners... A year ago the first volume of “Rituals of Bön” was released on vinyl. Zoharum now presents the second volume of this series, based on the recordings from the Moscow gigs where Phurpa performed magic shows lasting up until a few hours. The participants would certainly confirm that they are a highly intensive ritual in which both the band and the audience participate... As in the case of the previous LP, the second part of the series presents the sacred aspect of the Russian troupe’s activity. It’s more than 40 minutes of shamanic trance. Just like the first volume, this edition on black vinyl is strictly limited to 300 copies. [label info]

Gohan -- "Peur" -- CS -- €6
2016 ∞, , (ltd. 30)
Soft soil, the path hardly could be seen in the darkness of night. The air is getting thicker, light is dripping on the humid leaves; ghost lights are gleaming through the tangle of branches. Shadows sticking the fingertips. Your eyes, slowly opening and closing. Hypnotic vibe of the traffic lights and glowing windows of the megacity is circulating, remaining constant, but changing a little every single time. The intense feeling of something happening wrong. Reality is blurring. And in the end of the journey you found yourself again in the dark woods... Black cassette wrapped in hand-dyed fabric. [label info]

Alexander Nacraptor is a Russian sound producer whose album "Подручные материалы" ("Improvised Materials") is a weird mix of field recordings, movie samples, radio programs and documentary chronicles cuts, loops, background noises, voice and knocking. This is a mix of everything, that the artist could find and use. We receive signals from The Outside. From Eternal Yesterday, where time stands still. There, among noises and distortions, in the shadows of lifeless space we can find entities whose names are erased and forgotten a long time ago. They want to tell us something... Programming, field recordings - Alexander Nacraptor. Recorded - summer 2012, except "Первое Прикосновение (Демоны и Колокола)" - autumn 2005. Dedicated to everyone who seeks the answer to the question: "What happens when a tree falls in a forest and no one is around?" [label info]
Kohnen Pandi Duo -- "Darkness Comes In Two's" -- CS -- €10
2017 Dark Jazz Records, DJR 003, (ltd. 50)
Dark Jazz / Dark Ambient / Improvisation. Dutch artist Jason Köhnen (Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation) joins forces with the Hungarian drummer Balazs Pandí, best known in the last five or six years for his work with Merzbow. The duo’s first album, 'Darkness Comes in Two’s' was recorded live in Auróra, Budapest, Hungary, 23.11.16. Conducting itself with the gravity of a symphony, its 45-minute duration is divided into three roughly equal movements, each in their own way an attempt to grapple with the implications of their ideas within an infinite, yet all-enveloping, claustrophobic soundworld. [5:4] Chrome tapes, hand-dubbed, numbered edition of 50 copies.

System Morgue -- "Foret Noire" -- CS -- €6
2017 Noyade Records
Guitar Drone / Noise. System Morgue takes you to the Forêt Noire full of phobias, forgotten dreams and imagery trapped deep in subliminal levels. Follow dense guitar drones, dissolve your emotions and thoughts in their vibrations, submerge in sleepy meditation... Bunches of short mechanistic loops slowly pulsate behind stolid guitar chords, boost and mirror them, intensifying sonic pressure, spinning sound waves and locking them into spiral. Then pulsation become more frequent, anxiety grows and bursts with high-frequencey guitar yells and melody shreds cacophony in panicky rhythm. Short breather after panic attack, and sound pressure takes over again. Waves of guitar chords tighten distorted melodies in an uneven helix, sometimes ascending to hysterical crescendo, sometimes collapsing in melancholic alienation. [press-release]
t_error 404 -- "Buddha 2.0" -- 2 CS -- €17
2017 ∞, , (ltd. 18)
Megacity is still vibrating with neon signs and carstreams, that turned the streets into a glowing web by headlights, while you're connecting to the Net. Night here is always bright. But among all this, far from the noisy streets there are temples and sanctuaries, hidden in the virtual subspaces and modified brains, on flash drives and cloud storages, outside of time and physical territories. Cybermonks are uncovering new boundaries of fractal areas here, practicing and working out their karmas in an accelerated mode. Knowledge is flowing through the neon skies. Forms are changing, consciousness is tuning to a feedback channels, encoded in rhythmic patterns. And, disconnecting from the network once again, you're feeling a whiff of incense... Set of 2 blue cassettes wrapped in hand-dyed fabric. [label info]

Yunclas -- "A Train to Finland" -- CS -- €10
2017 NEN Records, NEN20, (ltd. 45)
The October Revolution of 1917 requires interpretation and practical mastering rather than celebration, and these are the things the Spanish project Yunclas does. The title 'A Train to Finland' refers to Lenin's arrival at the Finland station in Petrograd after his exile in 1917, together with a small group of revolutionaries, to propagate the ideas he had developed and which would be fundamental in the success of the Russian revolution. The album itself is dedicated to October 1917 and its striking, terrible, inspiring echoes that have been sounding through the history... Yunclas describes himself as "personal project but with a collective vocation. It was born to produce techno with a clear ideological intentionality».Techno by Yunclas is intimate; «It's not just dance-oriented music, it's music to make to think, or that's my intention», author says... ‘A Train to Finland' is an outstanding example of such thoughtful dances of transhistoric scales. Yunclas claims that the album is more rested, worked and integral than his other recordings: "all the tracks on the album are parts of the same story that unfolds in different phases and sequences..." Which story? A story of good news that the order of things is not set once and for all. Or, as Yunclas himself says, "the break with the established system, whether in its economic, social or cultural form, is possible and necessary to build other situations where the common interest is the priority. This is a basis of what I start to draw musical ideas, both structure, sound or emotions that can transmit the tracks. In my music I think that there is always that drive for the break"... Do you hear a beat? A train packed with impossible future arrives at our station... 45 hand-numbered copies. Recorded on recycled Soviet/early Russian MK-60 cassettes (tape and some mechanics replaced to ensure quality). Two-sided colored inlay sleeve featuring cut-up montage artwork. Soviet stamp issued in 1987 to 70th anniversary of the October Revolution of 1917 inside (6 different types of stamps available). [label info]

Aube -- "Le Syndrome Aquatique" -- 2 CD -- €12
2008 Silentes, sme 0721
This is the long awaited reissue of one of the best Aube's work originally titled AQUA SYNDROME, published about 10 years ago by MANIFOLD records. The new reissue included the original album with a bonus track and a bonus live CD. LE SYNDROME AQUATIQUE is an impressive job of deconstruction and resetting of sonorous material to work of Aube, this particularly extended in the duration, treaty and expanded time, much to be proposed in a rich edition in double CD. Through sophisticated and very tested technical of sonorous rework assembled in years of untiring activity in a searching experience, Aube puts molding on and models fragments of concrete sounds of "aquatic" derivation transforming them in unknown drones, noises, pads, loops rhythms-mechanics, constructing a fantastic sonorous tapestry of valuable invoice and incredible impact, and unavoidably bringing back to the memory the first three CD constructed with single water sounds of the monumental one box of 12 CDs proudly published from Amplexus more than 10 years ago. One new unforgettable work for all those who love, and has loved, the avant-guard-istic sonorous experimentations of large the great Japanese master. [press-release]

Expo 70 -- "Corridors To Infinity" -- 2 CD -- €14
2009/2014 Zoharum, ZOHAR 086-2, (ltd. 500)
Originally released in 2009 in a small tape and CDR edition (150 and 100 respectively), ”Corridors to Infinity” has been our favourite in their extensive discography. This edition, which sees the light of the day 5 years after its initial release, has been expanded to a double album with an additional disc entitled ”Star Coloured Clouds”. The original sound of Justin Wright's project – guitar-based drone psychedelia – has been augumented here with organ and synthesizer sounds giving it an even more spacious, but also meditative character. Expo 70 came closely here to Ash Ra Tempel without copying the German trio's sound, but having a similar feel drawing a few parallels with their early work. The second unreleased disc, recorded just one month before the sessions for the main album, has more guitars, yet manages to follow the same contemplative path complementing ”Corridors to Infinity” and thus creating a cohesive 2CD offering. The CD is housed in gatefold sleeve in the vein of Japanese-style vinyl replica and is strictly limited to 500 copies. The cover is based on the original release and the design was handled by Justin Wright. The whole production process was overseen by Michal Porwet. [press-release]
Falkenstein -- "Kraftort" -- CD -- €14
2009 Heimatfolk, HF 08
German pagan neofolk, a project of Tobias Franke. Glossy digipak + booklet.
Falkenstein -- "Urdarbrunnen" -- CD -- €14
2008 Heimatfolk, HF 04 / Kraftplatz Records, KRPL 02
Falkenstein is a young oaktree in the fairywoods of new Pagan Folk Music. Born out of the mystic nature and ancient cult-places of southern Germany, Falkenstein guides you gently to your heathen ancestors and their natural religion. Falkenstein's music is classical NeoFolk in best tradition, with beautiful lyrics about hallowed trees and woods, ancient tales from veiled times and long forgotten natural rites. Falkenstein is definitely a unique and outstanding NeoFolk artist of the new generation, who knows how to play his instruments and who's lyrics directly creep under the skin of each Pagan and Folk Music lover... Falkensteins self produced debut-album "Heiliger Wald" gained a lot of applause in Folk music press and was highly recommended by many reviewers. Their brandnew album "Urdarbrunnen" is now released by the STEINKLANG / AHNSTERN NeoFolk daughterlabel HEIMATFOLK. "Urdarbrunnen" is again a perfecly played, strong and dreamingly beautiful album with a rich, varied instrumentation, even more dense and powerful than the debut album. The musical range lasts from acoustic ballads over Martial Folk songs to dark fairietales about naturaly mysticism, paganism and natural rites in the Alpine regions... If Falkenstein would have been 40 years earlier, today they would stand in line with bands like early Steeleye Span, Magna Carta and Pentangle... All songs recorded by Tobias Franke - mastered by Axel Frank (WERKRAUM) - artwork, layout and most fotos by Max Percht (STURMPERCHT). [press-release]

ForrrestDrones -- "Najas Flexilis Exequiae" -- CD -- €10
2014 Zoharum, ZOHAR 082-2, (ltd. 300)
A few months ago tracks with old pictures of various plants started popping up around the net. Tracks full of organic, ethereal drones. Then this tape with covers made of pages from some old book was released and it landed in our hands. A set of 5 tracks entitled "Tallest Trees Gallery". We listened to it very carefully and loved it, but still didn't know who was responsible for those enchanting sounds. We went through the J-card and found only the email address starting from two words "Cough Serenades". Who is that Cough Serenades dude? It's Robert Skrzynski, otherwise known as Micromelancolie (do you still remember his Zoharum CD entitled "It Doesn't Belong Here"?). For his second offering as ForrrestDrones (but the first one on CD format) Robert has created one long piece entitled "Najas Flexilis Exequiae". A perfect contemplative track which takes you on a trip to the woods in the middle of the night. It is the world straight from forgotten fairy tales from sallow books. The owl from the cover is your guide on this dreamy journey. Is the forest real or are we only dreaming? Are those clicks, crackles and pops the sounds of the fire burning or the vinyl being played? Is the melody you hear soothing or sinister? Many questions keep popping up while listening to "Najas Flexilis Exequiae". Are you ready to take the challenge and answer them for yourself?... The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies. The cover paintings and design was made by Wiktor Jackowski. "Najas Flexilis Exequiae" was mastered by Mateusz Wysocki (aka Fischerle). The whole production process was overseen by Michal Porwet. [press-release]

Hati -- "Metanous" -- CD -- €10
2015 Zoharum, ZOHAR 105-2, (ltd. 400)
"Metanous" is HATI's third album on Zoharum, but the first one including new material. Two years after releasing "Wild Temple" CD (MonotypeRec., 2013) the band is back with a new album which is a summary of the period 2011-2012 when the musicians performed as a trio of Rafal Iwanski, Rafal Kolacki and Robert Darowski. It's the next time in their history when the duo changed their line-up to expand the sonic formula and create music of a slightly different nature. In the case of "Metanous" the weight of percussion is balanced by the sound of the didgeridoo which exists here not so much as an addition, but a fully-fledged instrument. As usual, you can hear many other instruments making up the sonic world of HATI from the very beginning of the band. Here you can find gongs, drums, bells, found objects, horns and other wind instruments. The sound generated in this new interaction is rich, song structures are usually complex, often based on a dialogue of characteristic gong-based rhythms with didgeridoo and several other instruments played by Robert Darowski. Here are also acoustic drone explorations, equally important in the music of the group. Once again HATI reveals a new, hidden face. By re-building their line-up or inviting new members or collaborators (so far they include Z'EV, Dariusz Brzostek, Slawomir Ciesielski), Rafal Iwanski and Rafal Kolacki still explore new sonic areas. "Metanous" is the transformation (of the mind); the word 'meta' (Latin) means as much as the boundary, the end, the turning point. In the case of HATI, it is in fact the end of that period for Torun musicians. The group will never return in such a configuration again. This album is a recording of an interesting period of the group included in seven compositions recorded for the purpose of this release... The cover is designed by Tomek Mirt. The album is mastered by Lukasz Miernik. The CD is housed in a digipak and the album is strictly limited to 400 copies. [press-release]
Hoffmann, Nick -- "Barbarous Tongues" -- CD -- €10
2014 Gravity Swarm Recordings, UT-43, (ltd. 300)
Nick Hoffman is the proprietor of Oregon-based Pilgrim Talk Records and a prolific experimental musician in his own right, and though the label seems to have been on hiatus since last year, his personal output at least remains steady. That growing body of work ranges from fields recordings and elaborate improvised collaborations (like his enthralling LP with Takahiro Kawaguchi and Aaron Zarzutzki for Senufo Editions), to the varied CD before me, Barbarous Tongues, out on Japan’s Gravity Swarm Recordings. Like the atmospheric totems spread across its folded-poster packaging — tinted obelisks, a Celtic mask, and a wall covered in hanging dolls — this is a crafted object, resonant drones and tone patterns that without that sense of “craft” might each seem to build themselves from sheer weight of inevitability. Manipulated choral samples and the noisy perambulations of a distorted squiggle here and there add dimension to the listening experience, but the album’s biggest payoff is in simply tracing its movement from beginning to end.

Jarl / Envenomist -- "Tunguska Event" -- CD -- €10
2014 Zoharum, ZOHAR 083-2, (ltd. 300)
A long time ago we discovered little known musician called Erik Jarl. We really liked his first albums and we were watching his music mature over the years. So when Erik contacted us with the offer concerning releasing his album we jumped at the chance. Erik has teamed up with David Reed aka Envenomist to create a sonic reenactment of the Tunguska event. It was ”was a large explosion which occurred near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, at about 07:14 on June 30, 1908” [Wikipedia]. It flattened 2,000 km2 of the forest and it caused glowing sunsets on the horizon. There are many theories concerning the cause of this particular event. Some scientists claim it was connected with an asteroid or comet that burst in the air above the region, others claim that it might have been a small black hole passing near the Earth. The mystery is still unsolved... The music, presented here in five parts, is full of oily drones and industrial blasts intertwined with unsettling ambient textures. The sound on this recording is of complex and mature nature, which hardly comes as a surprise when thinking about years both musicians spent mastering their skills (David with Envenomist and Luasa Raelon; Erik both in IRM and Skin Area, and solo known simply as Jarl). It is an interesting piece of work for those who search for something on the fringes of electronic music... The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies. [label info]

The material was recorded within one evening of February 12th, 2008. Atmospheric and hypnotising ritual, which differs from their solo projects with its new mood and more bright sounding.

L'Homme Eternel -- "Maladie Orientale - Sessia" -- CD-R -- €8
2008 Observatiore 21, (ltd. 50)
L'Homme Eternel is a collaboration project of two Russian musicians: Denis Shapovalov (Adriva, Sunchariot, Matter) and Alexander Selivanov (Mortart). The second work of H.E. is made in the same vein, but more chaotic and surreal. It doesn't contain flowing tracks as before, but still has the mesmerizing ritualistic feeling. Like in the previous album here the most interesting think lies in live improvised sonorities. Sounds are like alive creatures from other dimensions inhabitating the surreal jungles, they frighten and surprise one's consciousness. In general, this is a rough and abrupt work. [label info]
Laharis -- "Unpolitical Alchemy" -- CD -- €10
2006 Vrihaspati Recordings, VR003, (ltd. 500)
Laharis is the new project of Johan König who was the original founder of A Challenge of Honour. After recording the "Wilhelm Gustloff" sessions, Johan left ACOH and gave the Project to Peter, who is ACOH nowadays. In 2005 Johan started working on his own music again under a name that he used already several years ago: Laharis. On the new album "Unpolitical Alchemy" he works again (for the first time in 5 years) together with Peter. The sound is between the early ACOH recordings with modern electronic influences. A beautiful album with many psychedelic moments. The best soundtrack for long car-rides in dark nights. ATTENTION: this CD contains a hidden video-clip! [press-release]

Machinefabriek -- "The Measures Taken" -- CD -- €10
2015 Zoharum, ZOHAR 091-2, (ltd. 300)
After last year's two releases (a compilation of rare tracks ”Dubbeltjes” and the reissue of a collaborative album with Dag Rosenqvist entitled ”Vintermusik”) a renowned sound artist Rutger Zuydervelt returns with a completely new album called ”The Measures Taken”. It is the score for a dance performance by choreographer Alexander Whitley and visual artists Marshmallow Laser Feast. ”The Measures Taken” was originally commissioned by the Royal Opera House (it premiered there in May 2014). The spectacular performance involves a lot of hi-tech interactivity between dancers and projected visuals. The theme of man vs/with machine is magnified by the music, which combines warm melodic pads with glitchy white noise and (more than on any other Machinefabriek release) propulsive rhythms. Now you can enjoy the music from the performance on a physical album which is also striking without the use of the visual side... The album is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 300 copies. The cover is based on the original by Rutger Zuydervelt. It was mastered by Lukasz Miernik. The whole production process was overseen by Michal Porwet. [press-release]
Maeror Tri -- "Hypnobasia" -- CD -- €10
1992/2016 Zoharum, ZOHAR 112-2, (ltd. 350)
Musicians of the now-defunct Maeror Tri have already had many opportunities to work with Zoharum on both releasing their new recordings and reissues of their older material. Our catalog contains titles by Troum (“Autopoiesis / Nahtscato”, “Seeing-Ear Gods” and “Dreaming Muzak”), 1000Schoen (double split with Polish Ab Intra), and also their original project Maeror Tri (“Emotional Engramm” and “Meditamentum”). Together with musicians we remove blank spots in their discography by restoring their older recordings... Maeror Tri was a project operating since the mid-80s until 1997, when they released their last album entitled “Emotional Engramm.” In their works they penetrated such genres as minimalism, ambient and industrial music, and borrowed drone aesthetic from classical music. In addition to seven regular albums on CD and LP, they released a number of cassettes. They contained much rawer recordings compared to those from the trio’s regular albums. One of these two tape albums is “Hypnobasia” originally released in 1992 by the Italian label Old Europa Cafe. It was the fifth tape in the discography of Maeror Tri. The following rerelease is expanded with 3 additional tracks lifted from various artists compilations from 1989-1992. All the recordings have been remastered for this release. The album is released in a 2-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 350 copies. [press-release]

Majdanek Waltz -- "Die Blinden Schutzen" -- LP -- €20
2016 Sulphur Flowers, SF 7
Catharsis as art - the new full-length work of the leading Russian dark-folk project perfectly transmits the feeling of the devouring purification: death folk still has the right to exist, although most part of the time we are immersed in the deep swamps of dark ambient, embraced by the mysterious neoclassical chimes. [label info]
Majdanek Waltz -- "Stille!" -- CD -- €10
2012 Nadeln Prod., NaP.V
"Stille!" opens the new chapter in the history of Majdank Waltz. The outlines of terra incognita have appeared earlier on the album "Tenebrae" recorded in collaboration with Sal Solaris, where the classical neofolk form was changed to disturbing noisy fusion. "Stille!" moves even further, away from the utilized territories. At first glance everything is deceptively semi-familiar, but nothing is predictable. It's not possible to predict neither the curve of melody, nor the neighbourhood of a violin and a deaf wall of guitar rasp. And also, the most important here are not the sounds, but - as the title says - the gleams of silence between them, which speak much more than music. "Stille!" is a walk in a garden of ruins, where around every bend hides someone's forgotten dream, "a grief at the bottom". The lyrics used on this album belong to Nietzsche, Tomas, Rilke, Blake, Celan and Clemm. [press-release]

2014 self-released, (ltd. 100)
One of the projects of the St. Petersburg based noise musician G. Avrorin (Alisa-Yhtye, Huren Aquarium, ex-Monopolka, etc.), toughly chopped collage of various micro scraps of music, movies, cartoons and noise. The work is utterly meticulous, intense and unpredictable, a real caleidoscope. "Noise collages and husk of 10 years of development, powerful overproduction and other sins of pop industry." (from the author)
Northaunt -- "The Ominous Silence" -- CD -- €12
2001/2010 Ewers Tonkunst, HHE 027 CD / Cyclic Law, 32nd Cycle, (ltd. 470)
Second in a series of collaborations between Ewers Tonkunst and Cyclic Law is also a re-issue of a long sold out dark ambient milestone - the debut Northaunt album which first saw the daylight back in 2001 on Polish label Fluttering Dragon. "The Ominous Silence" is more musical album than its followers, with a lot of piano, guitar and synth melodic parts like in the classical tracks "De Sorte Traer" and "Pain Is Better", but the typical Northaunt elegiac melancholy and dark gloomy nordic ambient soundscapes are already here. This edition has completely new artwork, new mastering and a bonus track, it is limited to 470 copies and comes in a stylish monochrome mini LP-like embossed cover with inner sleeve and three inserts. [press-release]

Rosenqvist, Dag & Rutger Zuydervelt -- "Vintermusik" -- CD -- €10
2014 Zoharum, ZOHAR 080-2, (ltd. 300)
One album, seven tracks, two people. Who are they? Dag Rosenqvist is a Swedish musician releasing solo music under his own name/previously Jasper TX moniker, and Rutger Zuydervelt is prolific Dutch sound artist familiar to most as Machinefabriek, already known to Zoharum followers via ”Dubbeltjes” compilation of his rarities. And what is ”Vintermusik”? Actually, it is another rarity being reissued. The tracks from this album date back to 2006 and are one of the early tracks commited by both Dag & Rutger. They did not meet at the time of the recordings, they used the Internet to exchange files. And so 50 minutes of music was created. It is contemplative music full of shimmering guitar drones, delicate piano melodies and bits of field recordings. They sound cold, yet warm at the same time. So the time for releasing this music is just right – it is a little bit of winter music for the end of the summer... The original version ”Vintermusik” came out on a CDR limited to just 200 copies. Due to a popular demand we decided to re-release it. It has not dated in the least bit, it is as fresh as on the day of its release. As a special bonus, another rare gem was added, that is ”Feberdrom” coming from a 3” CDR. It gives you the full picture of those early ventures into duo collaboration between Dag and Rutger... ”Vintermusik” is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 300 copies. The cover is based on the original by Rutger Zuydervelt. It was mastered by Lukasz Miernik. The whole production process was overseen by Michal Porwet. [press-release]

Old-school industrial band from Siberian city Tomsk, Russia. First album was recorded at 1999 and reissued on 2009 on CD. Insane synth pulses and mad psychedelic guitar sound - if you love old Throbbing Gristle sound (end of 70') - this is for you! [label info]

2016 Torga Amun, Amun-098, (ltd. 40)
Sometimes the most private feelings and habits can emerge from someone's depths and explode in public as lifechanging decisions: that applies for sure to things such as porn or noise music. The virtual encounter between Venta Protesix and Victoria Yuki is possibly a meaningful epiphany for the work of both. Two sides of a screen, the masturbator and the pornstar; two complementary lives narrating of the same devotion and deviation, from different point of views. Almost 1 hour of new material coming out of Italo Belladonna's laptop, filled with japanese porn jpegs, delivering a fresh HNW version of his previously released stuff. Comes with a special dedication from Victoria Yuki. Pro-CDR, 40 copies. [label info]
Vluba-- "Arkarp" -- C-40 -- €4
2007 Monopolka / Emerson Lake & Headache
Psychodelic primitive drone rock from Argentina. Sound a bit more grim than you cold expect but, alike another Buenos Airish cripple magus Reynols, absolutely basic and snotty. Gives me replica impression of doing sex piss out of old leeds repair. Old good Skullflowerish attitude and even more boring. This tape will smoke you up, of course. Pro done tape, comes in the case sleeve, with screenprint insert. [press-release]

V/A -- "Heilige Feuer II" -- CD -- €14
2002 Der Angriff Nr. 6, (ltd. 1000)
On December 1st, 2001 the second Heilige Feuer festival was held by Indiestate Distribution in St. Petersburg. Following the great success of its last year predecessor, the triumph of the second event proved Heilige Feuer to be the biggest russian industrial feast that tends to become the regular one. The compilation that was released soon after the first event has become true sound memorial of its majestic atmosphere. Being a musical remembrance of Heilige Feuer II spirit, this release follows the tradition of the first compilation, including two exclusive tracks by each band which played that evening, that were contributed especially for this album. 2012 haunts a listener with their dark ambient structures melted with ritual rhythmic pulsations and mystical existential sounds, Raison D'Etre brings us their authentic sonic atmospheric reflections of its russian travel reminding of desolated russian landscapes and decaying city stones, while Cisfinitum futuristic mix of background subtle melodic nuances and powerful driving upfront noises wakes some associations with cold and utopian world which is similar to Bad Sector's lonely universe. Harsh and aggressive tunes of despair from Ex.Order and angry anthems of Anenzephalia crowns the overall feeling of virtual industrial musical trip to russian irrational inner essence. The CD is almost 1 hour long and comes as a digipak with A5 hard cover booklet printed with green and gold on the deluxe paper that is very similar to the first Heilige Feuer volume. [label info] CD comes with a festival poster and a ticket!
V/A -- "Horosho! - A Tribute To Vladimir Mayakovsky & Russian Futurism" -- CD -- €8
2014 Collapsar Publishing
The long awaited tribute to Russian futurism and such a flagship personality as Vladimir Mayakovskiy. The tritube was created by the musicians from Russia and Italy - the countries that most actively manifested themselves on the path of the Futurist movement. Unlike many compilations dedicated to the Futurism, we won't hear waves of abrasive noise and distorted rumble, but rather enjoy a glass of wine and feel inspiration from the elegant pop music and decadent rock, diving into the age of the avant-garde spirit and revolutionary art. AIN SOPH, ANENERBE MUSIC CLUB, CINETECA MECCANICA, ШРКЪ, SPIRAL69, TEATRO SATANICO, TORCH PROJECT, SPECTRE. Digisleeve with an 8-page booklet. [Ufa Muzak]
V/A -- "Iznutri" -- CD -- €11
2007 Ewers Tonkunst, HHE 014 CD, (ltd. 400)
The history of humanity knows many examples of posession by apocalyptic moods, but not many will argue that they have never been so overall as nowadays. In expectation of the End of Times we cast aside hysteria and try to catch the particular consonance - solemn and spellbound aspiration of liberation. Compilation "Iznutri" (Russian word meaning "from the inside") is a premonition - suffocating desert of linear time of contemporaneity will blow up like a mouldering mushroom, baring the unheard-of contours of the eternal present. However only a special Witness will be alble to go through this menacing transformation, whose coming evey one of us should await from the inside. Cisfinitum, Allerseelen, Reutoff, Sedative, Kryptogen Rundfunk, Majdanek Waltz, Sal Solaris, Hypnoz, Troum, Cyclotimia, Otzepenevshiye, O Paradis, Rapoon, Neutral, Hum, Quattro Bravo Eballieros.
