CDs & CD-Rs
EMPUSAE & SHINKIRO -- "Organic.Aural.Ornaments" -- CD -- €11
2011 Ant-Zen, act252
EMPUSAE is a project created by Sal-Ocin who is also a member of various other projects such as THIS MORN' OMINA, TZOLK'IN, PROJECT ARCTIC and also works as a live member of AH CAMA-SOTZ and IN SLAUGHTER NATIVES. Sal-Ocin is always open-minded about working together with other artists, as can be heard on this album: a liaison with Manabu Hiramoto a.k.a. SHINKIRO from Osaka, Japan who collaborated with artists like CONTAGIOUS ORGASM, HYBRYDS and JACK OR JIVE, and who has also made releases under the name KOTODAMA... Organic.Aural.Ornaments is based mostly on track-sources from Manabu supplemented by Sal-Ocin. Both artists' aural characteristics merge perfectly: SHINKIRO's cinematic dark soundscapes with a meditative touch blend with EMPUSAE's haunting ritualistic ambience and enthralling melodies. Varied rhythmic structures ranging from tribal to minimalistic sequences loom out of the vast, lamenting synth sounds - a kaleidoscope of ethereal atmospheres, both enthralling and enchanting... In Sal-Ocin's words, the term 'organic' fits perfectly concerning the result of this collaborative work. Two artistic minds fused into one, creating a movie without visuals or dialogue. Organic.Aural.Ornaments is waiting for you to step through the frame and into an imagined world, and we highly recommend taking the chance. [label info]

In Japan the old ancient word - KOTODAMA - meaning "The Spirit of Words" says to have a mysterious supernatural and spiritual power and is a word to be used with great caution and respect. This is the perfect soundtrack for fans of J-Horror culture. CD comes in a deluxe 6 panel digipack with stylish and beautiful ice cold dark designs / photography by S.alt / Bombthedot. [label info]

[label info]
NURSE WITH WOUND -- "Homotopy to Marie" -- CD -- €12
1982/2007 United Jnana, UJ 366
Homotopy To Marie is the fifth album by Nurse With Wound, released in 1982. Although Nurse With Wound had generated considerable interest across their preceding releases, Steven Stapleton has asserted to author David Keenan that Homotopy To Marie should be considered the first "real" NWW album. In Keenan's book England's Hidden Reverse, Stapleton states that this was the first album he made without intervention, the original trio line-up having dispersed in 1980. Although J. G. Thirlwell participated in some of the sessions and is thanked on the album's sleeve, this is effectively a Steven Stapleton solo album and he would retain sole curatorship of NWW from this point onwards. [Wikipedia]

2018 Paper Moon Republic, PMR_20, (ltd. 16)

ORGANOID -- "Bitsevsky Maniac" -- CD -- €16
2017 Filth And Violence, FILTH&VIOLENCE-163
Organoid "Bitsevsky Maniac" was recorded in 2007-2008 when I was 17-18 years old, and it was my first rather "adult" work. Unlike the first demo records, the material here took the form what was meant to be - atmospheric sinister crime electronics in the spirit of Slogun, Deathpile, Skin Crime, etc. "Bitsevsky Maniac" was lost by me in 2008 and still was never published, but in the summer of 2016 I was lucky enough to find it from my friend from another city! So this material waited for the listener for nearly 10 years. "Bitsevsky Maniac" is a conceptual material about Alexander Pitschuschkin, Russian serial killer, it includes Bloodyminded cover version plus some bonus tracks from first demos and compilations. Mastering by Pentti Dassum (Umpio). [from the author]
RXAXPXE / DEZERBET XUU NIMMERZETH -- split -- CD -- €11

German-Siberian alliance on 100 hand-numbered digipack CDs.

Dezerbet Xuu Nimmerzeth is the project of Alexander K. from Russia, also engaged in Flagellatio Orgasmus and Organoid (also F&V), etc. For DXN he presented eight tracks of lo-fi black harsh noise, including covers of Gonkulator and Beherit, featuring guest vocals from Dweller Of Endlesse Graves (Reptile Womb, Ritual Violence). [label info]
SENKETSU NO NIGHT CLUB -- "s/t" -- CD -- €12
2018/2019 Dark Jazz Records, DJR 005, (ltd. 100)
The project stems from an idea by ADRIANO VINCENTI determined to push his research into a new level. Inspired by extreme Japanese cinema, Adriano aims to bring together Japanese Power-Harsh drifts with jazz doom-noir atmospheres that he masters since a very long time. Next step was to involve in such a project GIOVANNI LEONARDI who was also passionate in such artistic expression. Alchemy was working and turning perfectly into a very intriguing project. The two than decided to ask also the support of English saxophonist IAN FERGUSON, who takes care of all wind instruments. But the initial psychoanalysis of the project is Japanese filmmaker FURACHI LIFE, she delivered one of his poems on band's debut album and took care of all the images and entire inspiration of the project... Everything was condensed in these 10 episodes that end up overcoming the stereotypes and gender boundaries, there is a language where jazz, trip hop, kraut rock, end up merging with industrial debris of uncompromising power-noise, evoking the most disturbing images of the rising Sol cinema. [band info] CD reissue of an album previously published by Old Europa Cafe as a CD-R limited to just 70 copies.
SHINKIRO -- "Archive: Volumes I - III" -- 2 CD -- €14
2018 Old Captain, OCCD42, (ltd. 250)
Shinkiro is a dark ambient project from Japan, formed in 2003 by Manabu Hiramoto who dwells in organic isolation full of pulsating drones and elegiac solaris ambiances. Based on the old recording sessions in 2003 - 2007 this release captures the darkest and most beautiful moments of Shinkiro's music: low-key synth textures merged with rhythmic cadences and slight distortions gradually unfolding roaming melodies, magnetic and cold undercurrents, ethereal epiphanies and ever present longing for the unattainable abyss. Three early unreleased albums assembled for the first time together manifest thrilling, oneiric and existentialist nature of Shinkiro's nature exposed in its dark and cinematic mosaic: Japanese voice samples blended with strained piano parts, machinery industrial noises, ominous drones, ritual percussion, hypnotic hardware pads leading to the event horizon. Dissolve in the myriad of mysterious emanations towards colossal eschatological pleroma. Recommended for those who follow Lustmord, Apoptose. Amazing music is accompanied with an exquisite layout executed by Mauro Berchi (Eibon Records) and produced as a 2CD edition in a 4-panel gloss-laminated Digipak limited to 250. [label info]
SHINKIRO -- "Archive Volume IV" -- CD-R -- €12
2018 EsotericAudio, EACD-02, (ltd. 18)

Limited edition of 18 hand-numbered copies. The CDR is a vinyl style in a jewel case decorated by layered origami papers & glass buttons.
SHINKIRO -- "Deep Blue" -- 2 CD -- €13
2005 Athanor, ATNR 027 / ATNR 028, (ltd. 500)
Debut release by SHINKIRO from the futuristic city of Osaka, Japan. We have great hopes for this fantastic CD, music could be the perfect soundtrack for films like Dark Water, Kairo or Cure... not so astonishing in our opinion for someone living so near the dark waters of the Yodos river. Dark ambiances with percussions and a few samples of smooth women voices. The sound has been once again remastered for the best pleasure by Andreas Resch of MINOX LAY. The digipack also looks stunning and initial copies (500) of the CD comes with a bonus MCD with 4 reworked tracks by HYBRYDS. [label info]
SHINKIRO -- "Way Of The Gods" -- CD -- €10
2008 Athanor, ATNR 036
Athanor is proud to present the second album by Japanese artist Manabu Hiramoto as Shinkiro. While the first album was urban and influenced by the deep dark atmospheres of the futuristic city of Osaka, Shinkiro’s new album focuses on a more personal path influenced by Shinto, Buddhism and Manabu’s relocation by the country side. The sound of the new album is made of deep dark soundscapes mixed with percussions, soundsources of rain, winds, sea, trees, waves and birds. Though the album is dark ambiant and ritualistic in essence, it also has a meditative and contemplative touch which may please fans of Steve Roach, Robert Rich or Alio Die... Under the alias ‘Kotodama’, Manabu also released a first CD for Vital and has a new collaboration CD with Contagious Orgasm on SSSM. Shinkiro will play live in Hong-Kong on the 21st of December as opening act for Jack or Jive, a well known Japanese band with whom Manabu has already collaborated on three tracks in the past... The CD is presented as a crystal box with clear tray. Artwork by Niko Skorpio that could remind works of J. Wozencroft for Touch. [label info]

UVODNA -- "Molodyozhny" -- CD -- €10
2017 K-Records, KR-003, (ltd. 221)
Dark Ambient. Half a century ago, on 18 April 1966, an extraordinary tragedy took place in Muysky District in the Republic of Buryatia. In the black morning the fate of ordinary people, villagers of Molodyozhny – doctors, industrial and office workers, was changed forever. An immensely powerful avalanche bore down a little village, turning hopes into crystals of ice, mixed with asbestos dust… Where snow chained everything with its pain and silence fell on mountain gorges, only a voice of an unknown mystery was echoing in a frozen mouth of the stream, swallowed by dead darkness… Where frost takes lives away… Where the Muya river flows… There you’ll be led by Uvodna… Dark ambient from the very heart of the Ural Mountains, brought by winds of Transbaikalian taiga… [label info]

BELORUKOV, ILIA / MIGUEL A. GARCIA / ALFREDO COSTA MONTEIRO -- "Etwas" -- C-45 -- €6
2018 Tanuki Records, 32, (ltd. 90)
"Etwas" is a new Tanuki Records cassette presenting two tracks (22:13 and 21:35 respectively) by Ilia Belorukov, Miguel A. Garcia and Alfredo Costa Monteiro, appearing for the first time as a trio. The three musicians had previously worked together in pairs: Miguel A. Garcia and Ilia Belorukov are regular collaborators (as Wolkokrots) while Monteiro has released two records with Garcia and one with Belorukov. All three have in common a practice based on physically challenging sounds and textures sourced from minute gestures and fragile materials like paper, strings, small objects or manipulated acoustic instruments like flute and accordeon. Despite their tiny initial volume and modest origins these sounds are treated until they acquire startling dynamic contrasts ranging from quiet and subtle to violently noisy. In these two pieces the trio has built an immersive landscape that eschews conventional drone tactics for slow-motion crashing micro-events. Tidal waves of piercing tones and sheets of sizzling mesh combine to shape unknown open spaces. [label info]
CYCLOFILLYDEA feat. VAL DENHAM -- "Before You Break / The Forest" -- C-10 -- €7
2018 Hvedrungrsmil Records, (ltd. 20)
The St. Petersburg formation Cyclofillydea spent more than two decades in the field of post-industrial, and the term “industrial” is more appropriate here, with a decent feeling of “British esoteric underground”. Especially relevant is the second component of the release - Val Denham, the visual artist who worked with Troubling Gristle, Psychic TV and a number of members from the same underground. Coverart is also made by her and it's beyond any criticism... [label info] Two tracks, performed in the classical English industrial key with energetic ritual vocals and collage sound.
ENTRE VIFS -- "Kohle + Stahl" -- C-45 -- €9
Lorraine is divided into four departments, plus a fifth which is called the steel-industry. The Fensch valley, in Lorraine, is one of those industrial regions heavily affected and effectlvely rendered powerless by the crisis of the steel-industry of the 1980s and 90s. As sons of metalworkers, and very much at home with the tools of the trade, the members of Muckrackers are natives of this region. They play within the slumbering industrial sites, in the veins of which the molten iron used to flow. With an authentic connection, far beyond the preppy poses of the industrial genre, their music bears the memory of their elders who have given their all: iron, cast iron, steel – and who, in the end, have been deprived of everything... “Kohle + Stahl” (Coal + Steel, an allusion to the late European Coal and Steel Community) is a tribute to Muckrackers and to their compatriots, sacrificed and promptly forgotten for supposedly superior reasons of productivity.
It is, and will probably remain, the one and only politically motivated work of Entre Vifs. Never forgive, never forget... Solo session by Zorin, May 6, 2014. Performed live at our Noisecraft Workshop. Maison Alfort, France. [from the author]
FLAGELLATIO ORGASMUS -- "Last Summer Of Innocence" -- CS -- €11
2017 Lost Empires Records, LER-03, (ltd. 50)
Power electronics from Barnaul, Western Siberia, Russia. The doctrine of humiliation / last breath of innocence. Artwork by the master Jukka Siikala. [label info]
FLAGELLATIO ORGASMUS / HYMENAL OPENING -- split -- CS -- €11
2017 Slivko Tapes, st001, (ltd. 50)
Half an hour long track by Flagellatio Orgasmus, slightly more atmospheric and experimental than early releases, but still keeping the basis of the old school industrial and power electronic energy. Hymenal Opening - a project by Jake DuBois, owner of the Bacteria Field label - pours half an hour of intense harsh noise. First and immediately successful release of the underground label run by the sole member of Flagellatio Orgasmus. [label info]
MYKORIZA / SVETLO111 -- "Stanciya" -- C-90 -- €8
2018 Biosonar^Lo-End, 085/2018, (ltd. 23)
The second split from the series of five. Queen of noise from St. Petersburg, Svetlana is a longtime activist of the noise scene, but she never sought to publish her works preferring live performances. We took a recording of one of her gigs and placed on one side of a cassette. Austere analogue synth drone noise - this is the side of Svetlo111. Mykoriza side contains a mixed homemade set of slightly naive amateur noise ambient, made also with the use of mostly analogue setup. Artwork - paper sleeve with a unique drawing by Lilia, the painter from the city of Vyatka, hand-written info and numeration. [label info]
PUSTOTA -- "Magnitofakt" -- C-45 -- €6
2019 Biosonar^Lo-End, 087/2019, (ltd. 12)
Once again PUSTOTA goes deep into the world of tape noises, re-recording and other magnetophone manipulations. Repeatedly re-recorded tape "cavities" are saturated with the imperfection of equipment and the entropy of material media: tapes from 70s-80s and reels. Four pieces are full of non-interference in the technical process and yet they have a special romantic spirit, an unaffected atmosphere. Artwork - paper pouch with inserts. Hand-written info and numeration. [label info]
RADIOSTALKING -- "Usad'ba Prof. Lyagushinskogo" -- C-60 -- €6
2018 Biosonar^Lo-End, 084/2018, (ltd. 15)
In the wilderness of provincial abandonments secret secrets are secreted. Professor Lyagushinskiy, who fled to Berlin, had buried a golden treasure under an age-old fur tree, trying to save his wealth from the Bolshevists. Radio interceptions and scanning the ether may probably become a better finding, for the aesthetic treasures warm our soul no less then golden bars. Artwork - wallpaper pouch with strange inserts, hand-written info and numeration. [label info]
RZENG -- "XXXX" -- CS -- €9
2018 NEN Records, (ltd. 33)
When speaking about her album ‘XXXX', Snezhana Reizen, a St.-Petersburg experimental musician, uses the epithet “two-hemispherical” that refers to the functional differentiation of the human brain, where the left hemisphere is responsible for analysis and logic, and the right one for imagination and intuition. Thus, the first - “left” - side of the cassette, where disciplined rhythms and thorny glitch reign, can serve as the acoustic equivalent for rational mental activity. On the second, the “right” side, dark industrial shamanism sets the tone, imposing a conversation about itself in categories of the fantastic. The integrity of the album is ensured not only and not so much by recurrunt and retracing sounds, as by its “trippy” nature. To change the metaphor, you can see that ‘XXXX‘ is arranged as a trip or a journey to the edge of night. On the way, the arrogant rider of consciousness plunges into sleep, drops the reins, and now the horse of the unconscious chooses its own path in a velvet emptiness. Wherever it steps, you always know where it will go. According to Reizen, the final track, which gave the name to the whole album, has an internal kinship to the slow-paced midnight raga Darbari. “Darbar” in Hindi and Urdu means “royal court”. The alchemical audience in the center of dream, who needs more explanation here? [label info]
SEX AND HYPNOSIS -- "Control The Mind / Control The Body" -- CS -- €11
2017 Bacteria Field, 044, (ltd. 50)
"On the count of three you’re going to sit on my face." [label info]
SMEHOPILORAMA -- "Opyleno Shmelyami" -- C-45 -- €6
2018 Biosonar^Lo-End, 086/2018, (ltd. 11)
The new page of the Leningrad noise underground. This time the comrades, armed with overdrives and other distortions, pour down the wall of noise of characteristic dispersive content on a listener; guitars, voices and other instruments are subjected to such destructive processing that they are no longer heard as something separate from each other. Harsh noise in low-fi mode of production. Artwork - rubberized paper sleeve wrapped in yellow duct tape. Hand-written info and numeration. [label info]
SONM -- "赤" -- CS -- €7
2018 Pearly Snowdrift, PS06
Ambient / Drone / Experimental. The idea of recording was originally conceived as a soundtrack to an experimental theatrical performance in the summer of 2017. As a result, a series of sound improvisations took shape of independent work, which slightly differs from the previous releases of the SONM duo in its sound and visual design. Transparent tape cassette, hand painted in marbling technique. A full-color cardboard slipcase with the author's collages. [label info]

AKPAN -- "Schwarze Sonne" -- CD -- €6
2007 Strely Peruna prod., SP019, (ltd. 420)
A project of a man also performing as Sva Battalion. Militant shamanistic dark-ambient/noise in which throat singing, khomus, percussion and wind instruments (not sampled but recorded by the author himself) meet noises and gunshots. Feeling like a gathering of shamans-generals conjures about their military business. In general, quite vivacious and non-standard recording, qualitative and interesting.
ARGENTUM / SIGVEGR -- "Black Sun Is Rising" -- CD -- €12
2007 Heidenwut Productions, HP002
High quality Martial Industrial from two acclaimed projects. Exalted compositions with different sound, from pompous melancholic neoclassics to harsh urban industrial, lots of military and political samples, tracks dedicated to historical past and the realities of modern NS movement. Jewel case, 8 page booklet. [YAOP]
CONTAGIOUS ORGASM + KOTODAMA -- "Blackout" -- CD -- €10
2008 SSSM, SSSM-109
Very nice atmospheric collaboration between Contagious Orgasm and fellow japanese act Kotodama, on Contagious Orgasm's SSSM label. Still slightly gritty, bure more mesmerizin than really noisy, the whole album contains a lot of long melodic loops, sci-fi soundscapes and this kind of almost dubby, deep tonality that is typical of Contagious Orgasm. More accessible than most material by this essential act, and recommended. [Ad Noiseam]
EGO COLLAPSE -- "Snow & Sun" -- CD-R -- €5
2016 Down Elcovka Records, CD-R DER 022, (ltd. 30)

Almost an hour-long droning suite for the lovers of late autumn and melancholic black and white movies. CD-R with printed surface packed in half-DVD box. [label info]

And hibernate. CD-R with printed surface, packed in a half-DVD-box. [label info]
HENTAI vs. NORDVARGR -- "Semen" -- CD -- €11
2006 Vital Records, Vital 003
Semen is a collaboration between Jakob Nybo (Hentai) and Henrik Nordvargr Bjørkk (MZ.412, Toroidh, Folkstorm). Hentai and Nordvargr ejaculate their audio semen into the cold electronic womb, and watch in fear as an unnatural sonic offspring mutates, squirms in agony and slowly comes to life. A unique and extremely disturbing masterpiece of fleshy, cold and perverse avantgarde dark / death electronic soundscape nightmares. Comes in a superb 6-panel digipak with artwork by Salt (Ant-Zen). [label info]
LIGHT COLLAPSE -- "Krasota?" -- 4 CD-R -- €7
2016 Down Elcovka Records, CD-R DER 026, (ltd. 20)
Radionoise. We'll be short and neat to fit the minimalistic artwork of this edition. Four discs of radionoise from the Urals. More than 4.5 hours of radio interference of various mood. Is this beauty ("krasota" means "beauty" in Russian) or not - that's still a question. Although we've decided that for ourselves long time ago. Four white CD-Rs with painted bugs. The amount of bugs equals to the number of the disc. Packed in a DVD-box. [label info]
LIGHT COLLAPSE -- "ZX Sedative" -- CD-R -- €5
2016 Paper Moon Republic, PMR_4, (ltd. 30)

SISTEMA BEZOPASNOSTI -- "Debitum Et Fides" -- 2 CD -- €10
2011 Heimdall Records
The new album of Sistema Bezopasnosti, one of the few currently active Russian dark folk bands. Their music is heroical and lyrical militaristic apocalyptic folk recorded by the canons of the genre: marching rhythms, acoustic guitar, bass, piano, trumpet and some amount of electronics. The band's style is easily recognizable by its lyrics and ecstatic vocals of the band's leader VlaD Doronin, and also by lush but thoroughly thoughtful musical arrangements. The songs sang in Russian language are dedicated both to the present-day themes of the dominance of non-spirituality, and to the timeless philosophical questions. Here's also some place for simple human feelings. The album also features a couple of nice instrumental tracks... The second CD contains the album "Cosmogony and Eschatology" (2008) previously not released on physical media. This opus is dedicated to the Scandinavian mythology and shows completely different side of the band, particularly it's skills in working with analogue electronic sound. Rich multilayered instrumental compositions, each of them like a trip with complete plot. This is not purely an ambient work, here is enough space for pompous battle scenes, electro ritual atmospheres and noisy moments... The album is released in a double digisleeve with an 8-page booklet containing lyrics and photos.
