CDs & CD-Rs
[13:75+0:11MLD] -- "Fields Of Jupiter" -- CD -- €7
2014 Black Death Production, BDP019, (ltd. 500)
Space Ambient / Dark Ambient from Poland. "Fields of Jupiter" is [13:75+0:11MLD]'s second full-length album, though first time on professional CD. This time the album focuses on Jupiter, the biggest planet of our Solar System. Some of the sounds are from Voyager's space probes. Three lengthy 3 tracks (almost 45 minutes) of cold and deep music. [Cold Spring]
ANTI-VERSTAND -- "Mulyazh V Pishchu Ne Prigoden" -- CD-R -- €5
2020 Paper Moon Republic, PMR_55, (ltd. 18)
Noise. Old School Harsh Noise, recorded live without spectators, without preparation and overdubs July 15, 2020. No electronics, just a contact microphone, macro objects (different for each of the three tracks) and tons of feedback. A ritual noise tribute to the classic styles of K2 and early Merzbow with a rabid psychopathic concept that harks back to the golden days of post-Soviet noise at the turn of the century, performed by Comforter, LLG, Reductio Ad Absurdum, Veprisuicida and Khlyst. Absurd scriptures and wild little heads. CD-R with printing on the surface, packed in transparent jewel-case. [label info]
AT1385 -- "Home Audio" -- CD-R -- €5
2015 Kill Ego, KLLG013, (ltd. 50)
IDM / Electro / Breaks. A project of the Russian musician Alexander Tikhonov with a compilation of tracks recorded in 2005-2015. Powerful rhythmic electronics. CD-R packed in a slim jewel-case with an obi-strip.
BELORUKOV / BOSSHARD / DENZIER / MARKVART -- "Bizarre Perspectives" -- CD-R -- €7
2020 Акт-Продукт, akt-produkt 41
Free Improvisation / Electroacoustic. Swiss violinist Patricia Bosshard and Franco-Swiss saxophonist Bertrand Denzler, active in various fields of modern improvisational and composed music, play together with Russian experimental musicians, whose range of activities is also rather wide: Ilia Belorukov plays here alto saxophone and electronics, Alexander Markvart uses feedbacks of a prepared acoustic guitar and extracts sounds from a variety of objects. The recording was made at the Sound Museum at the end of 2017, Bosshard and Denzler appeared then in St. Petersburg as representatives of ONCEIM – Orchestra of New Musical Creation, Experimentation and Improvisation, and performed together with St. Petersburg Improvisers Orchestra... 5 thoughtful and contemplative improvisations, in which it’s not always clear what instrument is the source of sound. Any of these improvisations is a trace or a document of a meeting, which, anyway, opens rather bizarre perspectives... The release has a physical form – CDr in a cardboard envelope (that is also rather strange at this difficult time). [label info]
CHERVI -- "Evil Game" -- CD-R -- €7
2020 Ultrasomnambula U, (ltd. 20)
Industrial / Darkwave / EBM. The second album of Chervi (Worms) from the distant 1997, forgotten, damned and unrevenged, never previously released, from the cassette archive of Yuri Kovalsky (also member of MERTVIJE HIPPY and MONUMENT STRAKHA). Now found and remastered. 20 hand-numbered copies in cardboard sleeves with a bonus-track unavailable in the download version. [label info]
CONNIFFE, BRIAN feat. SIMON MORRIS -- "The Day And The Night Of The Body" -- CD -- €10
2020 Lumberton Trading Company, LUMB031
Spoken Word / Dark Ambient. New two track album from Ireland's Brian Conniffe, previously known for his work with NURSE WITH WOUND and a MLP released on LTCo at the very end of 2013. One of these lengthy pieces features the late Simon Morris (CERAMIC HOBS) providing spoken word he wrote exclusively for it. The CD also arrives in Dolorosa De la Cruz artwork and includes a 4pp. booklet... Brian Conniffe is a cross-genre musician who has worked with a long list of collaborators covering a diverse stylistic range. Although perhaps most active as a member of a variety of synth-pop acts in his native Ireland, his most interesting work is that of far less conventional - deliberately uncommerical and even intentionally esoteric - experimental projects, characterised by a fusion of the darkest psychedelia with disquieting ambience. The most noteworthy of these possibly being the limited edition collaboration of NURSE WITH WOUND’s 'Musique Pour Faits Divers' (2016)... This album was recorded from 2007 to 2009, and consists of two expansive pieces, which - as the title suggests - are characterised respectively by bright and nocturnal atmospheres, and retain an intense physicality undiminished by the occasionally abstract nature of the wide-ranging sound pallet utilised. The first piece is symphonic tapestry of colourful noise and alien-sounding drones, constantly shifting and avoiding monotony, reminiscent in places of the work of LABRADFORD, THE HAFLER TRIO, JOHN DUNCAN, and AUBE at their best. The second piece is altogether darker and more defiant of description and comparison, based around a long text written and spoken by the late Simon Morris (author and frontman of the CERAMIC HOBS), which moves from its surreal yet possibly familiar beginning into an astonishingly breathless and tumultuous confessional, a true voice of the lost. The disquieting use of samples provided by Morris provides an intense sense of the uncanny... [label info]
DAY BEFORE US & ANTIKATECHON -- "Complaintes Au Bord D'un Autre Monde" -- CD -- €10
2020 Heerwegen Tod Production, HTP-CD 019
Dark Ambient / Neoclassical / Industrial. Heerwegen Tod Production has the honor to present the next release straight
from the borderland of dark ambient, neoclassical and industrial music styles. The two projects – French „Day Before Us” and Italian „Antikatechon” decided to join forces and create an album together... „Day Before Us” is the dark ambient project with neoclassical compositions full of women declamations. Wonderful keyboard compositions are just woven into the music background and they seem to be the cradle of a classic atmosphere. There is the place where we can feel the spirit of the past and it is filling today`s emptiness... „Antikatechon” is the project specializing in long ambient hypnotic sessions with industrial emotions. Such a combination of styles generates definitely very unusual sounds. They seem to be different but still connected in a very interesting way so they complement each other and form a kind of a symbiosis... This combination of both styles generates an unprecedented wall of sounds, seemingly from different dimensions, while cleverly combined in such an amazing way that both these projects they complement each other, passing from the gentle nature of Day Before Us into the more acute form of expression represented by Antikatechon, almost in perfect symbiosis. Music representing a lot of elements, which can be safely called a journey through various dimensions of ambient sounds, combined into one whole... This generates a very original atmosphere, which is impossible to pass by without emotions. The graphic design reflects the theme of the album. It consists of classic women figures in black and white pictures. They are presented in monumental poses and look alive, just like from old photographs taken „post mortem. This is the 62-minutes musical journey with an original atmosphere and a large load of emotions. [label info]
DESOLATE HEAVEN / DEFUNCTUS ASTRUM -- "The Ashes Of Cosmic Uncreation" -- CD -- €5
2020 Valgriind, VG62

2019 Live Bait Recording Foundation, LBRF054, (ltd. 300)
Dark Ambient / Industrial. Conceptualized and created throughout the first 8 months of 2019, Liminal Presence is not intended to be either a collaboration album, nor a split. Rather, a 70 minute journey into interstellar light drifts and sleep transformations. Floating and mystical ambient and underlying dark nightmares. Where the whole is greater than the sum of it's individual parts. Packed in a 6 panel wallet, limited to 300 copies. With collage work and graphic design by David Russell Stempowski. Mastered for optimal drift by Derek Rush. [label info]
GALAXY THE INCUBATOR -- "Invisible Strike (Semitransparent)" -- CD-R -- €5
2020 Den Noiser Memorial Archive / Valgriind Glasir CDR Series, 13
Radionoise. To commemorate Den Neuser's 35th birthday on October 12, 2020, Den Noiser Memorial Archive, Glasir CDR Series and YAOP have co-released the previously unissued 2009 Galaxy The Incubator's album "Invisible Strike (Semitransparent)", which has been discovered more than 10 years later in the Valgriind archives. A dense and massive Droning Radionoise, dedicated to the history of the world's first long-range ballistic missile "V-2", its development and experience in combat use. Given the importance of space topic in Den's work, the concept of an album dedicated to the rocket that laid the foundation for all astronautics is not at all coincidental for GTI. Rare photos of "V-2" were provided from the collection of the famous researcher and thinker Katarij. [label info]

GOAT THRON -- "I Believe In One Great, Unbroken And Death-obsessed Chaos" -- CD -- €7
2020 Heerwegen Tod Production, HTP-CD 018
Industrial / Dark Ambient / Noise. Once again Heerwegen Tod Production is responsible for the release of the latest Goat Thron album. After "Plugastwo", this is the next venom outbreak straight from Funeral primitive craft in creating sick visions of Dark Industrial / Noise / Dark Ambient. This time there is a kind of a clash of the dark side of nature with bloodthirsty human and mechanical creases from mining and heavy industry. The project is accompanied by the radical message and ideology. „I believe in one great, unbroken and death-obsessed chaos” sounds just like industrial concrete but it is also a tribute for the glory of destruction divided into 8 satanic hymns. This is over an hour prayer for the apocalypse and slavery which molest and destroy all the emotions. Dehumanized music and graphic design reflect raw and direct message presented by Goat Thron for many years. Because of its radical content, not for political correctly and religious citizens! [label info]

GOVERNMENT ALPHA -- "Affective Imagery" -- CD -- €10
2020 Abhorrent Creation Tapes, ACT001, (ltd. 500)
Noise. The brand new studio album from cult Japanese harsh noiser Government Alpha. Mangled scraping, droning junk noise, pitted against walls of insane, stomach-churning noise. Definitely one for those with a love of uneasy listening, with GA's queasy trademark cut-up artwork to match. A beast of a release! Nine tracks (48 mins) recorded at Xerxes Studio 2019. [Cold Spring]
IL LAZZARETTO -- "Il Necropolista" -- CD-R -- €11
2020 BeTon Raw, BTRW 16, (ltd. 30)
Post Mortem Electronics album dedicated to the life of the magician, necropolist and researcher Anatoly Moskvin from Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, who was forced to undergo compulsory treatment for creating and collecting dolls made from children's corpses. Death Industrial of the oldest possible school (as it would have sounded if performed by Maurizio Bianchi in the late 70s, if there was such a style at all), stitched with eerie field recordings, montages of necrotic sounds, depressing ultragothic solos in the spirit of local aspen jallo and electronics so primitive that it is itself a symptom. Overnights in cemeteries, a ritual wedding with a deceased 12-year old girl, sewing on shrouds and mummified skin, night family celebrations, digging in trash cans and other amusements of a provincial intellectual in 9 tracks of endlessly sick psychedelic pleasure. Black and white cardboard sleeve and mini poster booklet. [YAOP]

MURDEROUS VISION -- "Abscission" -- CD -- €10
2019/2020 Live Bait Recording Foundation, LBRF055 / Chthonic Streams, MYRK 075, (ltd. 300)
Dark Ambient / Industrial. Abscission is "the shedding of various parts of an organism, such as a plant dropping a leaf, fruit, flower, or seed. In zoology, abscission is the intentional shedding of a body part, such as the shedding of a claw, husk, or the autotomy of a tail to evade a predator." Danger is lurking, and the only way to survive it may be to lose a piece of yourself... The 2019 limited edition cassette Abscission has been remastered and expanded to 7 songs totaling 50 minutes of some of the best work of the project's 26-year existence.

NOISESMETANA -- "Space 43 / Is it your future??" -- CD -- €8
1996/2019 Provoloka, prvlk 0011-0001 / Bryansk – 0001, (ltd. 480)
Noise / Cut-Up / Sound Collage. NOISESMETANA is a mythical project. According to the apt expression of one of those interested, "only those who read old noise fanzines from the 90s know about NOISESMETANA." For the first time the name was found in the catalog of the St. Petersburg label "One Touch" 10-15 years ago. After asking Philip Wolokitin (as the person behind One Touch), I learned that “yes, there really was such a project”, “it was quite a long time ago” and “contact with the author was lost”. A dozen years later, thanks to Alex Alexeev, a cassette with a demo of this project fell into my hands and later I managed to communicate with the author. As it turned out, it all started in the first half of the 90s, in the city of Bryansk - after the author got acquainted with the 7" by AUDIOSTENCH / SATANIC DEATH and the DISPHAGIA band of the Alexeev brothers (SOI tapes). After some time (namely in 1995) Sergei himself decided to try his hand in the field of harshnoise and in 1996 released a demo record "Space 43" on his own label Miasma tapes. This was followed by both standalone releases and splits with various noise projects - among which there were no less mythical St. Petersburg TALONOV NET, Canadian DAN-CHARGE with "Humpty Dumpty", ERIK DISORDER with "A cunt with a bowl of reefer in it" and the aforementioned Alexeev brothers with LLG and WEAK ANAL MUSCLE. In addition to Smetana, Sergey organized several more projects - THREE CRIPPLE FREAKS (harshnoise), G.N.P (lofi / shitcore), also the Miasma tapes label is mutating into the publishing house Oral Diarrhea tapes (there were about 20-23 releases in total), releasing several more splits with LLG and Barnaul-based project LANAKROMOLEB. This disc contains tracks taken from the "Space 43" demo and from the triple split "Is it your future?" also featuring GOREGOD and LLG. [label info]
OF SWINE AND SWILL -- "s/t" -- CD -- €10
2009 Live Bait Recording Foundation, LBRF028, (ltd. 1000)
Industrial / Psychedelic Rock. Like an ancient bottle of Absinthe found buried in some dark cellar, you've discovered something very unique here. Elements of the classics, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath and Hawkwind perfume the air as an aural louche, sonic clouds swirling with Industrial soundscapes a la Deutsch Nepal or In Slaughter Natives, with a touch of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Stephen Petrus (Murderous Vision) and John Potter (Flintknap/Murderous Vision) created the initial concepts for Of Swine and Swill as childhood friends. Musical discussions turned to all night experimentations. Recording sessions turned into weekends, then weeks of nothing but the music. Over the course of the summer of '08, Stephen and John blended their rock and electronic roots into a finely honed project, with over an hour of material recorded. With the addition of Rick Pflueger (Reichardt Van Grieken, Rambler 454) contributing vocals on two tracks, and eventually joining the project full time, the circle has been made complete. Without the constraints nor boundaries of any one genre, the music of Of Swine and Swill is very personal, introspective and emotional, a palette of color, aggressive yet subtle. Atmospheric, yet never a passive listen! The album features a 8 page full color booklet, which includes all lyrics and artwork by both John and Stephen. [Fishpond]
PARANOIA INDUCTA -- "Viri Probi" -- CD -- €10
2020 Heerwegen Tod Production, HTP-CD 017
Dark Ambient. Heerwegen Tod Production has the pleasure to present Viri Probi, the third part of Lux Mundi, eagerly awaited by all the Paranoia Inducta fans. Lux Mundi follows Gloria Laus and Pia Fraus (released by Beast of Prey) and addresses the issue of atrocities committed by Roman Catholic Church. The disc (released in jewel case) contains 49 minutes of emotional, dark and dynamic ambient music which perfectly complements two previous parts... The darkness of the music stresses the wicked nature of Catholic Church, the dynamic performance of sacral parts refers to monumental structures of temples where all the crimes and persecution against those who did not accept Christian values, were taking place... Viri Probi (act III) is another great achievement of Anthony Armaggedon Destroyer talent and his unique approach to the music (or as he calls it anti-music). It can be compared to Cold Meat Industry, projects of Desiderii Marginis, Raison d'etre or Megaptera. All the followers of Paranoia Inducta will find themselves mesmerised by liveliness, dynamic and expresssion of his music... [label info]
PROXIMA THULE -- "Integralnye Sny" -- CD -- €8
2020 MIC Label, MIC 015, (ltd. 100)
Dark Electro / EBM. "Integralnye Sny" (Integral Dreams) is the first full-length release of the Odessa post-industrial project Proxima Thule. The disc contains a diverse and powerful fusion of EBM, dark-electro, future pop and synthgoth. The 11 chapters of the dark futuristic manifesto contain some undoubted dancefloor killer tracks like 'Alive Dead', 'Worms', 'Man and Machine', hysterically philosophical 'Time' and 'Your New World', prophetic 'Future' and 'Liars'; apocalyptic 'Void Over the World' and 'We Will Stay'. Bonus - oriental rave song 'Hydra Says', dedicated to the memory of Keith Flint... Proxima Thule says. Proxima Thule opens up sores. Proxima Thule accelerates the locomotive. [label info]
RAMLEH -- "The Great Unlearning" -- 2 CD -- €14
2019/2020 Fourth Dimension Records, FD2CD121
Noise Rock / Industrial. The 2CD version of the group's fantastic new album, originally released during the summer as a 2LP by Egyptian label Nashazphone. An absolutely stunning collection of songs by Gary Mundy, Anthony Di Franco, Stuart Dennison, Martyn Watts, Philip Best and Sarah Froelich that draw from post-punk, ravaged psychedelia, raw electronics and, of course, their own background as purveyors of music both intense and uncompromising. Packaged in a 6-panel foldout sleeve similar to the previous 'Circular Time' album. Quite possibly album of the year at Fourth Dimension HQ... Of the original 2LP release Brainwashed said: "Like 2015's 'Circular Time', 'The Great Unlearning' is another massive release from Ramleh, though a bit more concise as a double record, rather than a double CD. While 'Circular Time' was definitely a rock album, this one features the band further merging their two styles. On the whole it works as a perfect culmination of the project’s sound, from the ultra low fidelity tapes of the early 1980s, into the dense noise rock of the 1990s to the polished production of today. In just short of 80 minutes, 'The Great Unlearning' manages to summarize everything that has made Ramleh so brilliant for the past four decades, and hopefully a hint as to what will come next from Mundy and Di Franco in the future." [label info]
ROBINSON, EUGENE S. & PHILIPPE PETIT -- "Chapel in the Pines" -- CD -- €10
2018 Lumberton Trading Company, LUMB028
Avantgarde / Spoken Word / Art Rock. The very latest set of collaborative work by Oxbow's frontman and a master of sonic architecture, Philippe Petit, this time also including Percy Howard on vocals. Aided by two of other musicians, the five pieces here are built around brooding spoken word accompanied by a range of electronics, guitars, percussion, piano and metallic sounds moulded into suitable backdrops. Anybody familiar with the previous collaborative albums will be able to grasp the sometimes ravaged nature at work here. Utterly commanding, Chapel in the Pines ebbs into a space where the literary meets contemporary abstract sound in absolute harmony. Includes 8pp. booklet of Eugene's words. [label info]
SCAB, DOM F. -- "Crosswords" -- CD -- €10
2005 Margen, 0105/3
Berlin School. Crosswords is the latest release by Spain based synthisist Dom F. Scab. This new CD is a fantastic concept album which brings visions into every listeners' eyes and mind.

Any open-minded, adventurous musical lover will return to this magical CD again and again. [label info]
SCAB, DOM F. -- "Necessary Fears" -- CD -- €10
2006 Margen, 0206/2
Berlin School. Spanish synthesist Dom F. Scab has quite a large discography and has established himself as an important figure in electronic music. He is taking the Berlin school of spacey sequencer-driven electronics in new directions. Twelve Stories (2004), Crosswords (2005), and Necessary Fears (2006) all have strong influences of Tangerine Dream circa Stratosfear, plus a few instances of more Vangelis-like material. Never too abstract or experimental, his music is full of classic Teutonic sequencing blended with melodic elements. [Cue-Records]

VITOULIS, SAM & SERGIO KOVAL -- "Leonard" -- CD -- €10
2005 Margen, 0105/1

Leonard is a collection of 16 epic, open and spacies tracks. Combining the classic patters and timbres of modular analog synthesizers with the latest digital devices, Koval and Vitoulis explored a murky, moody domain evocative of both the interstellar void and the infinitely more mysterious expanses of myth and the mind... Amazing sequences orchestrations and choral arrangements, high-class melodies and the intemporal flavour of vintage synthesizers (Yamaha CS-80, Moog, Mellotron). [label info]

2019/2020 Valgriind, VG65
Black Metal. One-man Atmospheric Black Metal band from Mikhaylovsk, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia. "On this album, I definitely returned to atmospheric and measured music. You can call it depressive, but I prefer the definition of “introspective”. Although it concerns almost all of my music. But the album was spontaneous and painful. My dark thoughts, doubts and experiences at the end of the summer, waiting for the new winter..." [from the author]
WOLLO, ERIC -- "Silver Beach" -- CD -- €10

Silver Beach is Erik’s most rhythmic album consisting of fifteen intense and stunning tracks from his early career. At the time, Electronic music was still in its early stages, and the MIDI revolution had just started to influence the way artists made music... The original Silver Beach album (tracks 1-8) was released on vinyl on the Norwegian label Cicada Records in 1987. In 1988 the album was released on CD (also Cicada) and included the additional and very rhythmical tracks “Little Big Tune” and “Mountain Train.” The album was re-released on CD on the Spanish label Margen Records in 2005, remastered and fine-tuned with 5 additional previously unreleased tracks from the same era.

ZINKL -- "Dance Music For Insects" -- CD -- €10
2002 Margen, 0202
Electronic / Prog Rock / Experimental. Munich based composer and sound designer Zinkl proved himself with his first albums as a musician, who never treads beaten tracks. Between the worlds of electronic music, progressive rock, jazz or world music Zinkl seeks his artistic freedom and creates most unusual soundtracks for imaginary movies. With his new longplayer "Dance Music For Insects" Zinkl continues what he started with the musical science fiction adventures on his third album "Plexus Andromeda": Once again he has dedicated a whole album to a very special topic. Insects, Zinkl says, may seem banal at first glance, but on closer examination (i.e. through a magnifying glass) show themselves to be bizarre monsters, "unbelievably robust and resistant and extremely strange." Thus the notoriously inventive Zinkl confronts the listener with accordingly bizarre and strange sounds in his purely instrumental dance music for the multi-legged animals. Again his affection for cryptical humour, for drolleries and funny horror makes his music flourish beautifully. Still there is an important new aspect to Zinkl's music: There is a new emphasis on grooves, the architecture of the songs is more open, amidst all the sophistication sensuality has gained more ground. In short: "Dance Music For Insects" is the most accessible Zinkl album to date. [BSC Music]

BELORUKOV, ILIA / JAON KAHN -- "Studio Album" -- CS -- €9
2020 Notice Recordings, NTR056, (ltd. 100)
Free Improvisation / Experimental / Noise. This studio recording of Jason Kahn (voice) and Ilia Belorukov (modular synthesizer) is tense and taut, as dry, crumbling sonic swathes manifest both as machine and human, facilitating an almost ceremonial liberation. Kahn has historically been known for electronic sounds exhibiting stasis and abrasive, enduring minimalism; as of late his work has been primarily concerned with his own unaltered voice. Belorukov’s work exists within the realm of improvised noise and electroacoustics, as he prioritizes a wide range of collaborations. Kahn's voice provides a stark contrast to Belorukov's jagged synthesis, like examining oneself close-up in a mirror. Here, these prolific musicians share a unique, intimate intensity through drastically different approaches. [label info]

Black Metal / Folk. Two demos of the Chernoplod' project in audio cassette format. Side A - demo of 2018, side B - demo of 2020. Demo'18 consists of 2 compositions. Raw black metal with a folk bias due to female vocals, singing "folk" parts and lyrics of the tracks. Demo'20 adheres to the same vector, but it has acquired a more "cutting" sound and three more songs. Also there is more emphasis on female parts and more thoughtful instrumental textures. Both releases and lyrics are on opposite sides of the same cassette. Recorded in the attic near the village of Chernoe Zakhonye,Pskov region, Russia. [from the artists]
CHEWING ELEPHANTS -- "Cassette" -- CS -- €7
2019 YAD, (ltd. 10)
Noise Rock / No Wave / Lo-Fi. The anthology of Chewing Elephants opens with the album 'Cassette'. The most spontaneous of all three, it also has all the charm of the first pancake. Rushed arrangements, made on the go, complement the lyrics, also composed spontaneously. The album, which should have been recorded in the kitchen, appeared in the basement of a rehearsal base. The title track is a good example of analog mixing as it was recorded over a dance music tape. The result is a "natural collage". Songs with a dance background in the most direct sense of the word. [label info]
CHEWING ELEPHANTS -- "Everything Shrank Inside" -- CS -- €7
2019 YAD, (ltd. 10)
Noise Rock / No Wave / Lo-Fi. The cycle is continued by the most hit album "Everything Shrank Inside". The pinnacle of Chewing Elephants' creativity. Songs written in the train on the way to rehearsal are accompanied by wandering and the rollcall of mismatched instruments. The psychedelic sound and love lyrics create a spring mood. I can't even believe that people who consider themselves producers will later consider this project futile. [label info]
CHEWING ELEPHANTS -- "Ferro" -- CS -- €7
2019 YAD, (ltd. 10)
Noise Rock / No Wave / Lo-Fi. The album "Ferro" closes the trilogy - an example of the fact that metallization of sound doesn't necessarily tend to make it heavier. Noisy recording, as if slightly rusty. The lyrics are imbued with the theme of distance and the desire to travel. Light autumn sadness. The band had one more record, after which began the history of the BROOKS band. Until then, here's the unprecedented declassification of archives. For connoisseurs only. [label info]
THE CRAWLING CHAOS -- "s/t" -- CS -- €7
2017 Отвар, #5, (ltd. 30)
Noise Metal / Sludge / Avantgarde Jazz from Moscow. Too experimental band, it just ain't possible to describe their full genre palette here, varying between doom, black metal and grindcore, flavoured with saxophone noise. Among the members of the group are the members of IL and DEKONSTRUKTOR, and this certainly says something! [Outown]

2012 Second Sleep, SS050
Experimental / Drone / Minimal. A project of Jon Borges (Emaciator, Vasculae, Monorail Trespassing label) from the US. "This is one of the few special ambient/atmospheric albums that I revisit regularly becuase the content resonates with me and takes me to a particular mental state. The compositions are pretty basic and that's the point, these are basically just collections of various decaying tape loops, masterfully stitched together to create a very unusual sonic fabric. Non-cliche darkness, tense melancholy. Beautiful." [Dawid Kowalski].

FAKE MOVEMENT -- "Special Mobile Dub Force" -- CS -- €7
2020 TAKOE, TAK013E
IDM / Dub / Experimental from Moscow. "Fake Movement is instant music, quick-cooking noodles of Russian underground, a scam with thimbles on an unfinished playground, a broken toy disguised as a new one, a "doll" instead of crispy bills. There is no point in straining. There is a point in relaxing, as deception is inevitable." [from the author]
FUTILITEIT ORCHESTRA -- "Burning Bridges" -- CS -- €8
2020 NEN Records, NEN42, (ltd. 45)
Synth-Pop / New Wave. «Eighties, I’m living in the eighties!», — the bug-eyed prophed yelled, and we listened to him with our mouths open. Thirty-odd years passed, the prophet sailed to isles and the eighties gave their way to the twenties. What happened?... In the scheme of things, nothing changed. This record is another confirmation of world in constant. Sedated disco, linear stand at the inner «tshun!» command, songs about the art of falling apart, that your parents went amiss and that you have found low key. Consider this as a cult offering to the spirit of pop mu-sick never became really popular in its days, but sprouted years later. A revision of simple sound techniques, evoking sensations far from simple. An applied eroticism of unjustified expectations and broken promises, a truly perpetual world engine, making everyone dance in its motion... What else remains, when we have no Joan of Arc and even no girl with an oar slipped into the images of time, but only a corpse, wrapped in plastic? Just take this piece of polymer mass and stop the world... Two-sided color inlay sleeve in a jewel case. 45 hand-numbered copies. Color stickers on both sides of a tape. Cases come in a numbered mail envlope with a marked separation line. [label info]
GALAXY THE INCUBATOR -- "Invisible Strike (Semitransparent)" -- C-48 -- €6
2020 Den Noiser Memorial Archive / YAOP, YAOP 101, (ltd. 35)
Radionoise. To commemorate Den Neuser's 35th birthday on October 12, 2020, Den Noiser Memorial Archive, Glasir CDR Series and YAOP have co-released the previously unissued 2009 Galaxy The Incubator's album "Invisible Strike (Semitransparent)", which has been discovered more than 10 years later in the Valgriind archives. YAOP is responsible for producing the cassette version of the release. A dense and massive Droning Radionoise, dedicated to the history of the world's first long-range ballistic missile "V-2", its development and experience in combat use. Given the importance of space topic in Den's work, the concept of an album dedicated to the rocket that laid the foundation for all astronautics is not at all coincidental for GTI. Rare photos of "V-2" were provided from the collection of the famous researcher and thinker Katarij. [label info]
GORDON, DALE -- "Sex in the Family" -- C-20 -- €15
2007 Institute Of Paraphilia Studies, (ltd. 50)
Noise / Power Electronics. More immoral yuck from Finnish singer/songwriter Mikko Aspa, again using sleazy paperback art as a cover for paraphilic prurience. Aspa's name is nowhere on the tape, though. Instead, this is by "Dale Gordon, Ph.D" and it's not simply a c10 of rough aural abrasion, it's a "study". It must be science! [Bleak Bliss]

Noise. 4 way split with different people, which I have been preparing to publish for three years. Forhazis, Thirst for Consumption, Merry Bread and my collaboration with Belial. A lot of noise and rumble, nothing progressive, just exceptional harshness. [Grigory Avrorin]

J.NEHRU -- "Anshlag-Anshlag" -- CS -- €8
1998/2020 Winter Solstice, WS 009, (ltd. 30)
Experimental / Industrial Rock. This band was a kind of "Russian Psyhic TV" in the 90s. They played music which was well-known in the world, yet completely incomprehensible in their native city of Tula. However they played live a lot and participated in small and big events on the local stage. Now this music sounds no less interesting than early releases by Cabaret Voltaire, Coil, The Residents and many other interesting bands, although we don't want to make such comparisons. This is the history of the Russian underground music, a must-have for everyone who's interested in it. [label info]
J.NEHRU -- "Cha-Cha" -- CS -- €8
1998/2020 Winter Solstice, WS 010, (ltd. 30)

YAO 91404 D -- "Sportfront" -- C-36 -- €6
2020 Luxury Terrace, LuxTer 02, (ltd. 22)
Industrial. The sports theme is not very spoiled by attention of musicians, and in the field of experimental music it is completely exotic. Some of the examples that can be recalled offhand are the prog-ambient "Ode to the Good Messenger" by Eduard Artemiev, the Musique Concrète canvas "Iranian Female Olympic Table Tennis Team Theme" by Muslimgauze and the industrial album "Jačati Tijelo Sportom" by the great Croatian act SAT Stoicizmo, although there is not so much sport as one might expect from the title. The new cassette of the industrial project YAO 91404 D released by Luxury Terrace is intended to continue this list. Based on a solid foundation of futuristic ideas from the second quarter of the 20th century, this work is made in the style of the old-school Mechano-Industrial: it boils with a heavy, thick and powerful machine sound - matching the rough blackness of the album artwork. The resilient dynamism of groovy machine rhythms is saturated with excerpts from old football broadcasts, tearing apart the dynamics of antediluvian radio receivers with a roar of jubilant stadiums. Truly fighting work, once again confirming the immutable dogma that sport is, first of all, a sublimation of war, no matter what conclusions are drawn from this. Limited edition of 22 hand-numbered copies. Black and white cassette covers and stickers. Extra photo sticker included. [label info]

2009/2013 Werewolf Promotion, WP255 / Heerwegen Tod Production, HTP-MC 010, (ltd. 500)
Dark Ambient. "Orbis Terrarum Requiem" in brief means "The World's Requiem" or "The Earth's Requiem" and in the case of this album the second explanation given fits better to its concept and thematology. It is a requiem for the destruction that has befallen Earth/Nature inflicted by humans.

MACHISMO -- "Bodies in Perfection" -- C-20 -- €7
2015 Terror, TR-13
Power Electronics / Noise. The first thought that comes to my mind after seeing Machismo, Striations, Abuse Patterns titles or Depravity, Anabolic Dimensions labels, is filth, inconvenient themes and oppressive darkness full of aggression. This is the perfect example of USA power electronics scene - no clear structure, no compromises, no lyrical deviations from the core of noise. 20 minute tape full of raw hate, dedicated to victimizers and oppressors in best vein of USA power electronics.

MAJDANEK WALTZ / SAL SOLARIS -- "Himmel Des Reichs / Der Himmel Über Berlin" -- CD -- €10
2008 kultFRONT, KF-X, (ltd. 500)
Split "Himmel Des Reichs / Der Himmel Über Berlin" is a re-issue of the most energetic recording of MW with remastered sound, with special support of their associated from SS. In fact the release continues the theme of MW's single "Cranes" - the theme of inanity of the confrontation between the two forces of brother-soldiers. And yet two poles can be distinctly seen here, divided both stylistically and ideologically. If four tracks of MW are the hymns of one of the confronting sides, performed at the meeting point of anxious military-industrial and dark-folk, four tracks of SS are the ambient-industrial memory of those who was at the other side of the front. The CD is accomplished by a thematical videoclip of SS "Der Himmel Über Berlin" created from archive video-materials. The author is a clip-maker Oleg Potiy (VJ Dornier Wal). The artwork contains rare photographs from 1939 when the fighters of both poles were still confederates. [press-release]

OTZEPENEVSHIYE -- "Methadrone" -- C-90 -- €15
2020 NEN Records, NEN107, (ltd. 72)
Industrial Metal / Drone Doom / Experimental. In our estimation (saying “our”, I mean Оцепеневшие), Methadrone (side A) is a documentation of the best concert performance in all the years the project has existed, a performance played by the best ever line-up. Asterius (Sal Solaris), VoPoH (Cisfinitum) and Myrrman (Reutoff,) came together on stage. The event was rendered a certain specialty by the appearance of the newly found VoPoH behind Polivox – he took the place of Dmitriy Zubov (Der Golem), the now deceased third member of the project’s very first lineup. So just take it for granted: there were gods on staget that night, and they always sing one song about the main thing... Methadrone is an "afterhum" that people usually hear – it starts so early, on the edge of the human hearing, that no one understands when something went wrong, and one feels 'just' uneasy - always 'a bit'... Methadrone by Оценепеневшие takes in quickly, and you feel as if you were inside a solid monolith. It grinds the joints of published and unpublished compositions. It slops, falling into swampy holes and abandoned missile silos. It makes feel "cold" under one's knee. It howls relentlessly peering into windows of night Russian suburban trains. It sniffs like a fool, hoping for the best and getting stuck in weird postures. Tilting the head back, it mumbles in longing for pain and beauty. Because everything is good. Because nothing matters. It brings you on the verge of laughing or crying, as there is nothing left beyond. Nothing but the icy desert and the horizon of no return – and you, having no maps or plans, stuck between the two... We produce Methadrone, which imperceptibly tortures everyone reminding of the fact that beauty and icy desert are so adjacent, and we produce it in the most concentrated and bioavailable form, recalling the principle that similia similibus curantur. Methadrone by Оцепеневшие is an inoculation against the habit... The B side has no need to go into details due to it's laconic and enigmatic nature. It's also a recording of a live performance, a special 'expurgatory' one, played on April 7, 2018 at Model T Club (Moscow) (thanks to Ritual Booking). Same staff, no doomgaze, no guitars, only samplers, effectors, tapes, synthesizers and vinyl. Listening is necessary to get practical knowledge, what the prefix 'metha' in the word 'methadrone' means. Adding "Hypothese №2" makes the tape work like an optical system: one side reveals the ferocity of the other, and vice versa... 72 black сassettes with a black sticker on each side hide within a vacuumised embossed pack with a couple of black medical gloves, a black medical mask, a postcard, some new Оцепеневшие on self-isolation photos and a download coupone. NB! Vacuuming the package caused some expected wrinkles on the photos and the postcard. Here we point to complicity with materials. They draw a direct analogy to the folds and contractions that occur on the subject's surface as a result of prolonged self-isolation and quarantine limited social interaction. [label info]

2004/2020 Heerwegen Tod Production, HTP-MC 042, (ltd. 33)

The second one - "Sanctifed Destruction" is a dehumanized kaleidoscope of a radical anti-musical attitude, a roller of industrial sounds, adorned with dark ambient nothingness. The album simply paralyzes the senses of hearing, soothes the pain of existence, and at the same time involves us into tumble of all emotions and a hypnotic machine session, where human feelings are replaced by machine trance. Both tapes are limited to 33 pieces, hand-numbered, include about 150 minutes of heavy music, like tank, crawling on human nature, causing extreme emotions.Both tapes are a prelude to the latest Paranoia Inducta album which will be released soon in Heerwegen Tod Production!

RADIOSON vs. KRYPTOGEN RUNDFUNK -- "Dissoluteness" -- C-40 -- €15
2020 NEN Records, NEN33, (ltd. 33)
Noise / Experimental. This collaborative product by [S] and M.M. is a black twin of their previous work [W]interloop[s]. If [W]interloop[s] is dominated by a filigree play of frequencies and a needle-frost coziness – “Dissoluteness” opens the door into anarchaos of technogenic frustration pressed by purposeful randomness... The recording comprises fragments of radio broadcasts, EV-phenomena living their own lives, haunting signals and phantom sounds. It almost took years to create the opus, as the experiment was very time-comsuming. All sources went through the tape again and again with one and only purpose – to amplify defects and artifacts to the utmost. Repeated re-re-re-recording of the phonogram resulted in a canvas of unpredictable landscape, woven from interferences of ornate structures... A modest masterpiece of degenerative arts and crafts, a discreet monument to unkown victims of psychotronic wars – in a form of an art object... 33 сassettes hide in a hard A6 book cover with an A5 instruction sheet (with partly highly classified information) fixed with a cord inside. Every of 33 sheets (the circulation is strictly limited) is numbered by hand. A black tape case with die stamping on both sides is attached to the cover with a 40cm hand cut twilled ribbon that evokes pleasant memories of medical bandages and tying up Soviet case files (for VERY special cases, no doubt). Cover artwork is produced in mixed techniqnes with deliberately limited use of digital instruments by Ivan Spitsyn (Nizhny Novgorod). [label info]

SEALED IN BLOOD -- "Accursed Sphere" -- CD -- €7
2015 Heerwegen Tod Production, HTP-CD 006
Dark Ambient. The inspiration for record of 5th release of dark ambient project from Lower Silesia was forgotten, omitted and devastated places around Polkowice. Traditionally the greatest role played such items as ruined shrines, forgotten cemeteries with overgrown monuments and remains of funeral halls. At the same time away from human settlements it`s possible to find the places with old oak trees which are integral part of landscape. Then it goes night with its autumn aura, mist and moon accompanied by ritual anthems. All these factors are creating mighty, hard and gloomy atmosphere around the last release of Sealed in Blood. One hour songs contained of misty sounds in music traditionally builded on individual foundations of the mining and industrial areas environment, on instruments of own production, keyboard expressions leading by vocal sounds recorded in abandoned bunkers. All this stuff is perfectly captured on the picture painted in 1982 by local artist Wasowski. It exactly reflects the concept of the release on the front included the raw graphics photos made by Funeral. [press-release]

Unfortunately most of these places were devastated, industrialized and become more urban in order to increase the territory „Żelazny Most” sump reservoir. That`s why its named “Dying Temple” and it is try to preserve as well as the unique climate, hypnotic joining of human minds with the past and heritage of the spirit of nature, and time seriously tarnished and devastated, through the mindless progress of civilization pushing the contact of closeness to nature with a man in the abyss.

T-WALD -- "Landeinwarts: In Memory Of Hermann Hesse" -- CD -- €5
2014 Ufa Muzak, UFA 66 / Valgriind, VG 56, (ltd. 300)
Symphonic ambient / Neoclassic. The album dedicated to Hermann Hesse opens like his book, from the very first lines inviting to the inmost fabulous world of his impetuous imagination, intellectual fiction tightly related to the moments of his own life. Hesse set himself against the society and was running from it into his dreams, in journeys, in complete dissolution in nature which was the confirmation of the existence of God. He couldn't imagine life without creativity, having truly healing force, being able to bring up a personality, giving answers to the essence of things. Hesse wrote about that in his last philosophical surrealistic novel "The Glass Bead Game", in which an order of intellectuals invents the universal art influenced by Buddhism and mathematics in addition to music. Like in the aesthetics of Romanticism, kept up by the German classic, the idea of progress and civilization is opposed by returning of a human to the roots of nature, so in the music of T-WALD one can hear quiet whisperings of wildlife spirits, always having a powerful impact on the ability to create. The album touches the key points of the writer's world of imagery. Deliberately quiet recording prepares the listener for the attentive contemplative mood, in which he would open again and again the faery grottos inviting to take a rest in each of them, being imbued by the magic. Light weightless melody, like a breath of wind from Bodensee, carries long faded smells, voices, rustling of leaves and splashes of water from the past. There is no return, the only thing left is the book read long ago and buried in a pile of dry leaves, and the eternal music in a long abandoned empty house. "Oh, was not all suffering time, were not all forms of tormenting oneself and being afraid time, was not everything hard, everything hostile in the world gone and overcome as soon as one had overcome time, as soon as time would have been put out of existence by one's thoughts?"... 9 tracks, 45 minutes, 6 panel cardboard sleeve.

Burning ice and frosty flames in two tracks of Thursian Black Industrial Electronics from the new project hailing from the banks of Volkhov river. ThUrSo (= Thurisaz Uruz Sowilo) pierce with such powerful, raw and dank synthesizer sound that it's better to compare it with the works of Ildjarn, Wulkanaz and Arckanum rather than any electronic producers. Stalactites are flaming, volcanic lava is poured on a glacier and freezes still... the opposites merge in one in anticipation of Ragnarök. White cassettes with hand-painted stickers.

2014 Valgriind, VG 52, (ltd. 500)
Martial / Ritual Noise / Ambient. "This is not a usual split-album. This disc is a kind of report material and a transitional moment. It contains both old compositions, previously released on compilations and albums in their original variants or in those versions waiting for their hour in projects' archives, and also completely new material. 14 mantric hymns directed to the nameless and speechless Gods dwelling out of limits of atomic lattices, 14 steps to the pedestal with a cup full of burning wild foreign flames lit by ancient Titans from the rays of the Black Sun. A travelogue and a map of a pilgrimage to the borders of the conditioned and finite world." [press-release]

URUK-HAI -- "Northern Lights" -- CD -- €5
2005/2011 Valgriind, VG 47
Black Ambient / Dungeon Synth. Among those musicians who have read of tons of heroic fantasy books and spent hours listening to the music of Varg and Summoning and then rushed to torture guitars and synthesizers creating "inspired epic music", Alexander Wieser and his Uruk-Hai are the most pleasant to me, being a usual listener. He manages to create really epic compositions imbued with the spirit of ancient tales, soaked in spirit of bloody battles or beauty of fairy worlds where the dreamy author's nature tries to get with the help of rich fantasy. "Northern Lights" is a reissue of a cassette from 2005, with excluded track "Moria" (caused by of lack of space) and new bonus tracks instead old ones. This album material perfectly shows the essence of Wieser's music. On the one hand, it is black metal rawness and rage of Burzum (although the instrumental cover-version sounds very peaceful), on another - fantasy-like "otherworldness" of Enya (whose track "May It Be" is sung by some Hildr Valkyrie good in everything except for the fact that she is far from being Enya, and it speaks for itself)... When many adherents of "black ambient" play on two-three synth keys, Wieser manages to compose simple but heart-stirring electronic symphonies... A good work of Uruk-Hai waited for more effectrive media and meeting larger audience. [maeror3.livejournal.com]
VENGEANCE SPACE QUARTET -- "The Decaying Of The Year" -- CD-R -- €7
2017 Live Bait Recording Foundation, LBRF049, (ltd. 300)
Stoner / Psychedelic Rock. For the most part, "The Decaying Of The Year" was created and recorded spontaneously over a 3 hour period, on a warm late summer day. This concept is a holdover from the way VSQ practices in Lull's garage, or drunkenly blazes through live shows in a variety of Cleveland venues. Spaced out improvisational jams for fans of Ramleh, Electric Wizard and 60's era Floyd. Limited to 300 copies in a 4 panel, full color wallet, featuring Pinhole Photography and Hand Lettering by Jeff Curtis. [label info]
VENOMOUS RIG -- "VSTrange" -- CD-R -- €5
2015 Kill Ego, KLLG016
Industrial / Dark Ambient / Experimental. The Venomous Rig territory is a representation of the past, present and future: about where our civilization came from, where has it came to, and where it moves to (or, more precisely, does NOT move?), all performed as streams of consciousness. The fundamental influence on these flows, as an element of the present, is made by industrial aesthetics and man-made environment. They fascinate just like the first step of a child - the first real step of a young civilization in understanding and reclamation of the surrounding reality. They frighten at the same time - because it is the time to move on and set forth another leg for the next step, otherwise the child will fall by inertia, the civilization will destroy itself, leaving only a mutilated planet for the future. Believing that pure intuition is more strong and truthful than logical thinking, making the conceptual works, but being against constructing and writing compositions, here we have a one-time recording of the streams of consciousness without further layering and editing. After all, sometimes the less you think about something, the more you understand it ... Are these the moments when the work of the mind suddenly reaches a new, higher level? [label info]

2017 Valgriind / Glasir CDR Series, 01
Brilliant Death Industrial / Power Electronics collaboration of the two projects dedicated to the events of the Winter War 1939-1940.
