CDs & CD-Rs

ASTRO -- "Shell Star / Spica" -- CD -- €10
2004/2009 Cipher Productions, (sic39), (ltd. 500)
Noise. In March 2004 I released what was then, and remains now, one of the titles I am most proud to have released on Cipher Productions: the Astro 'Shell Star/Spica' 2x3"CDR. Now five years later that material is reissued on CD, with all-new artwork from Mike Shiflet. 'Shell Star/Spica' was one of the first Astro releases to truly crystalise Hiroshi Hasegawa's use of subtle editing techniques and beautiful layering/mixing control with his synth mastery, for two near-20 minute tracks of dizzying orchestration and arrangement. This is where the modern Astro sound began, to be continued into equally competent works as 'Astral Orange Sunshine', and I'm incredibly pleased to make it available again for those who missed out the first time around. [label info]

BIZARRE UPROAR / AUNT MARY -- "Recordings 1991-1992" -- CD -- €25
2005 Freak Animal Records, FREAK-CD-031, (ltd. 200)
Noise / Noisecore. Early recordings made by Pasi Markkula for his projects BIZARRE UPROAR (harsh noise / power electronics) and AUNT MARY (noisecore).

BLOODYMINDED -- "Gift Givers" -- CD -- €10
2005 BloodLust!, B!045
Power Electronics / Noise. The band's third full-length release. Two years in the making. Ten full tracks, five blast songs, an unexpected introduction, and a voyeuristic middle passage. Multiple vocal layers, in English, French, and Spanish. Guest appearances from Michael D. Williams (Eyehategod, Outlaw Order, Arson Anthem, The Guilt Of...) on the song "Ten Suicides" and Pierpaolo Zoppo (Mauthausen Orchestra) on "Private Thoughts." [label info]

BLOODYMINDED -- "Magnetism" -- CD -- €10
2006 BloodLust!, B!057
Power Electronics. This is the fourth full-length BLOODYMINDED album. Surprisingly released little more than a year after their previous full-length, "Gift Givers" [B!045, 2005], this album demonstrated a disturbingly updated approach to the band’s sound. It is comprised of fifteen feedback-drenched tracks -- ten of which are relatively full-length songs and five of which are the band’s trademark blast songs, although track length lines may be a bit blurred in the greater context of the album. Some listeners might equate the sound of "Magnetism" to the band’s often urgent and turbulent live sound -- certainly more so now, as the group has focused on several of these songs in the live setting over the past four years. This album features much more abstract, eccentric, and guttural vocals, which encompass screaming, howling, yelling, moaning, etc., and without a doubt, it strongly divided listener opinion... [label info]

BLOODYMINDED -- "Trophy" -- CD -- €10
1995 BloodLust!, B!001
Power Electronics. First BLOODYMINDED album after the disbanding of the group INTRINSIC ACTION. 47 songs, 74-minute power-electronic debut, a combination of "blast" songs, 2- to 3-minute songs, and one long 20-minute track.

BLOODYMINDED -- "True Crime" -- CD -- €10
2002 BloodLust!, B!040
Power Electronics. The band's second full-length release. Guests include Xavier Laradji of "Timeless" magazine (now a full-fledged band member), Paolo Bandera of SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS/SIGILLUM S, Andrea Chiaravalli of IUGULA-THOR, Akifumi Nakajima of AUBE, Jonathan Canady of ANGEL OF DECAY/DEATHPILE/DEAD WORLD, and John Balistreri of SLOGUN.

BSICTRANSIT -- "Аэлита" -- CD -- €10
2019 Akt-Produkt, akt-produkt 39
Soundtrack / Ambient / Experimental. Cosmism is becoming a promising idea again, and it would be difficult for Akt-Produkt to stay aside from this trend. So we present our first cosmist release (and 39th overall). “Aelita” is the music for a ballet of the same name, created by Tomsk-based experimental collective bSICtransit. The ballet, which itself was an experimental work in progress, was first performed on November 7, 2014. Dance artist Ksenia Belenkova was responsible for its choreography, and its libretto based on the eponymous novel by Alexei Tolstoy was compiled by philosopher German Preobrazhensky... bSICtransit recorded a minimalistic and alchemical soundtrack where everything oscillates between the two poles. On the one hand there’s warm and old-fashioned Earth, where, however, there is no place already; on the other hand there’s cold, strange and alien space, where there is also no place (yet?). But there are 2 things that connect them – those are love and revolution. However, both of them remain somewhere in between those non-places, in the incomplete (or endless) flight towards.

CACTUS TRUCK with WADIM DICKE -- "Live In Siberia" -- CD-R -- €6
2019 Akt-Produkt, [akt-produkt 36] / Tractata Records, 004
Free Jazz. Akt-Produkt presents its 36th, this time another international release – live recording of Amsterdam-based power jazz trio Cactus Truck together with Wadim Dicke, bassist from Tomsk, Siberia... The Dutch trio describes its music as a mix of free jazz, japanoise, no wave, and delta blues. Saxophonist John Dikeman, guitarist Jasper Stadhouders, and drummer Onno Govaert create a high density sonic flow. On the one hand, their sound could be called old-school – it is inhabited by ghosts of free jazz, recalling the frenzy of Albert Ayler (whose "Spirits Rejoice" is quoted in the recording) or the first experiments of mixing jazz with heavy music; on the other hand – it is nuts and reckless in a punk rock way... Like many improvisers, Cactus Truck often collaborate with other musicians. In 2012 they did a joint release with Terrie Ex. "Live in Siberia" is a collaboration with Wadim Dicke – bassist, improviser, conductor of Strangelet Ensemble, and a member of such experimental outfits as Sect of Phoenix and Sine Seawave. Due to Wadim's presence, the sonic hailstorm seems to be even denser, and at the same time, more complete... This highly energetic recording was made at the "Energetik" house of culture in Cheremushki, the engineers settlement of the Sayano–Shushenskaya Dam. The EP consists of two improvised numbers, plainly titled "The Long Track" and "The Short One". The former unremittingly holds your attention for 19 minutes; the grindcore-like rapid firing of the latter, performed as an encore, fits under 15 seconds (not counting the applause), with a lot going on during those seconds. [label info]

CLINIC OF TORTURE -- "Whip And Pierce" -- CD -- €25
2001/2003 Freak Animal Records, FREAK-CD-030, (ltd. 200)
Noise / Industrial. One of the numerous projects of the restless Mikko Aspa (GRUNT). This CD collects tracks from the 2001 "Whip & Pierce" LP and from the 2003 "Perversion Bizar" 3"CDr. First edition, limited to 200 copies.

DIETER MUH -- "Mutus Liber" -- CD -- €11
1995/2019 EE Tapes, EE40, (ltd. 200)
Industrial. All recordings shaped between 1993-1994 at the Wormery Studios, Nottingham, UK apart from track 5 recorded live at the Narrowboat, Nottingham 17-12-1994. Originally made as a 'give away' cassette for those who shared an interest. Never before released on CD. Packed in a 6-panel digipak limited to 200 copies.

DRESDEN '45 -- "Archiv 1993-1999" -- CD -- €7
2003/2004 Der Elfentanz, DE04, (ltd. 500)
Industrial / Power Electronics from Germany. Re-release of the lim. 99 tape. From dronning dark ambient tracks to rhythmic industrial songs. Well structured, with samples and voices and all in all very good listenable! [Parallax Records]

ESPLENDOR GEOMETRICO -- "1980-1982" -- 2 CD -- €14
1999 Staalplaat, S.T. CD 061
Industrial. Esplendor Geometrico was the leading industrial ensemble out of Spain. They began with a rather derivative style, best represented by the cassette "Muerte A Escala Industrial" (1981) and the single "Necrosis en la poya" (1981), but achieved with Mekano-Turbo (1988) the link between the harsh wall of noise of early "industrialists" and the electronic body music of their descendants. "1980-1982" collects the first cassette and the first self-released album: this is Esplendor Geometrico at their most cacophonous, specializing in electronic distortions and drones. This is still an impressive piece of soundwork. This double CD permits finally to accede to EG early stuff to all those that we did not had the opportunity of making it previously. It contains the full "EG 1" tape, "Héroe del trabajo / El acero del partido" LP and "Necrosis en la poya" EP. [label info]

GRASSOW, MATHIAS -- "Himavat" -- CD -- €11
1999 Staalplaat, STCD 036, (ltd. 1000)
Ambient / Drone / Tribal. This album is a non-religious and a non-new age work. It's a pagan work, full of doubt to all certain perceptions. In case of understanding music as a state and not as a tool for entertainment, these compositions once more are a possible way for each listener to walk on own different paths of sanity and consciousness. These ways are only ideas of mine; unlimited ideas and a large painting. The music is the oil and you're the canvas. Together it can be a wonderful picture of a mans state of being and the world behind. So please check out out the five different pathways and the following piece behind each. Surely you'll find a state representing your mind at the moment, like a polaroid... [from the author]

HASEGAWA, HIROSHI / LEID-LINIE -- split -- CD -- €10
2016 Cipher Productions, (sic 86), (ltd. 100)
Noise. Over the first half of this CD Hiroshi Hasegawa (ASTRO, C.C.C.C., MORTAL VISION, etc.) proves just why he is considered a master of the noise idiom. Through textural manipulation of feedback, corrupt electronics and junk metals, "Unconditional Surrender" is as virulent as anything in his impressive 25+ year career. Undeterred, LEID-LINIE - the rebranding of Sascha Mandler's respected IZANAMI'S LABOUR PAINS project - responds with four tracks of finessed cut-up noise abundant with dynamic tension and wrenching juxtaposition. Edition of 100 CDs with cover artwork by MALSONUS mainman Jonathan Canady. [label info]

HYDRA -- "Power" -- CD-R -- €7
1996/2008 BloodLust!, B!111
Power Electronics. Nearly twelve years since its first release in an edition of 50 cassettes, nearly five years since the death of HYDRA-head Greg Scott, with little of his musical legacy remaining, the time seems appropriate to re-visit this barely heard recording from Scott's short-lived, post-FINAL SOLUTION band. The disc is comprised of studio and live recordings (including memorable, between-song banter) for fans of power electronics, noise and old-school industrial. [Tedium House]

INVISIBLE FRONT -- "Interferences And Time" -- CD -- €7
2007 Indie-ziert, IZ.03, (ltd. 477)
Industrial / Noise. "The shortwave pulsates and lives..." Your history, your noises, mysterious signals and the brainwashing function as a propaganda medium were the inspiration for the first album of the Berlin noise project INVISIBLE FRONT "Interferences and Time" with the subtitle "Battle on all sequences". The visual design of the CD, the name and the logo already indicate the subject of the Third Reich. The same is also reflected in titles such as "Neue Propaganda für Neue Hirne" ("New Propaganda for New Brains") and "Harmonie für den Schützengraben" ("Harmony for the Trench"). The main style is pure noise, peppered with a pair of rhythmic industrial interludes and calmer ambient sounds. INVISIBLE FRONT uses plenty of historical speech samples for this, so that the whole album sounds like a kind of radio play. In addition, “Lili Marleen” by LALE ANDERSEN can be heard from time to time, to which the track "Schicksalslied Aller Fronten" ("Fateful Song of All Fronts") is dedicated. None of this sounds particularly innovative and is only intended for very special tastes, but due to the many samples, which sometimes only become apparent after listening to it several times, the album remains quite interesting. As with every story, after all, you want to know how it goes on... The CD comes in a slim DVD box with a photo and sticker and is limited to 477 hand-numbered copies. [Terrorverlag]

K2 -- "Junk-A-Tohgenkyo" -- CD -- €10
2012 Cipher Productions, (sic 67), (ltd. 250)
Noise. This CD closes K2's second chapter which, through almost two decades, littered the noise world with some of the brightest, most bewildering, and most dangerous metal junks-infused noise imaginable. Junk-A-Tohgenkyo bookends that era of K2, following the Target To Nowhere and Brainwash Education CDRs on Cipher and Tochnit Aleph respectively, with a collection of the project's final three live shows each staged in mid 2003. First, a solo set at Tokyo's legendary 20000V aptly titled "The Last Metal Storm". Second, a lengthy collaborative track with those titans of noise, the one and only Incapacitants, again at 20000V. Third, a less abrasive and utterly intriguing collaboration with Yukinori Kikuchi (Billy?) served up at Tokuzo in Nagoya. Each track is a room recording, capturing all the eagerness, pressure, volume and weld sparks of the event. This CD must be played LOUD for true effect. Pro-pressed CD, digipack, edition of 250 copies. [label info]

MACRONYMPHA -- "Close To The Edge" -- CD-R -- €25
2003 Self-Abuse Records
Harsh Noise.

MACRONYMPHA -- "Fetischismus" -- CD -- €10
2017 L. White Records, LW102, (ltd. 100)
Noise. Macronympha provides new material for fanatic's listening purposes. Leo of Armenia and Joe Roemer recently teamed up to create the new version of Macro together, and is more focused on an ambiance-vision with ominous tensions. Despite that, it still has most of the blistering and damaging trademark sounds that have influenced noise in general. 77 minutes finest harshnoise from America! [label info]

MACRONYMPHA -- "Priapus" -- CD-R -- €12
2005 Harshnoise, HN-012

MAEROR TRI -- "The Singles" -- CD -- €11
2005/2020 EE Tapes, EE42, (ltd. 500)
Drone / Industrial. Second edition of the CD compilation of Maeror Tri singles and EPs originally released in 1993-1996 (except for the very first single "Saltatrix", released by Drone Records in 1993). These tracks were originally featured on the following EPs: "Physis" 7" (Fools Paradise Records), "Mystagogus" 7" (Noise Museum), "Exorbitant" 7" (Ant-Zen) and "Pleroma/Altrove" (Ant-Zen). Packed in a 6-panel digipak.

MONTAGE -- "Protest Against The Government" -- 3"CD-R -- €7
2005 Misanthrope Studio, MS012, (ltd. 200)
Noise project of Koji Takagi from Japan (aka Iconoclasm, also Monotype label boss).

MOTHER SAVAGE -- "Kryptopyrrole" -- CD -- €10
1993/2013 Industrial Recollections
Noise. Joseph Roemer and Rodger Stella from MACRONYMPHA. Very physical and hand-on approach on industrial-noise with many similar sonic qualities as MACRONYMPHA. This tape originally published under this name in 1996 by Mother Savage Noise Productions. Industrial Recollection version includes artwork from it's earlier version simply known as Mother Savege "2" tape. [label info]

MUSLIMGAUZE -- "Iranair Inflight Magazine" -- CD -- €11
2014 Staalplaat, MUSLIMLIM 021, (ltd. 700)
Experimental / Tribal / Dub. Each title is a page in the Iranair inflight magazine. "Behind a false plaster and mud partition covered with posters declaring Muslims are being massacred by the forces of imperialism, Ghulam, a tall bearded youth whispers instructions into a radio set using code words from the Koran..." Title of track 3 comes from a passage of a Sunday Times article (4th October 1998) about Bin Laden's men infiltration in indian state of Jammu and Kashmir: "In the bazaars of Srinagar's old town, chuddar-clad women now speak of the jihad and the bearded foreigners in their midst..."

MUSLIMGAUZE -- "Souk Bou Saada" -- CD -- €11
2012 Staalplaat / Muslimgauze Archive, 3, (ltd. 700)
Experimental / Dub. Hefty slabs of beefy beats are seasoned with spicy South Asian melodies while mouth numbingly hot bass lines are smothered in distortion chutney; "Souk Bou Saad" was broiled in Machester’s finest tandoor and is now served by Staalplaat. If you love East-Indian flavor with a neo-Bhangra beat, this disc will not disappoint, equally at home on the dance floors of Bradistan, UK or Mumbai, India. On a buffet, this sizzling dish ought to be placed somewhere between "Silknoose" and "Lahore & Marseille", but with some unique takes on Bhangra beats... Though "Souk Bou Saad" overall is decidedly East-Indian, it also acts as a bridge between above mentioned albums, great for Muslimgauze completists who want to hear all versions of previously released works along with something new and essential to those who are slaves to the rhythm. [label info]

MUSLIMGAUZE -- "Un​-​used Re​-​mix's 1994​-​1995" -- CD -- €11
2014 Staalplaat / Muslimgauze Archive, 28, (ltd. 500)
Experimental / Dub. "We do not work on a release, a piece is done at a time. A CD is drawn from various tracks which can span a few days, weeks or a month, or a day, each release is different." [Bryn Jones, Grinding Into Emptiness interview, 1998] Here we have an excellent example of the perils and rewards of that approach; eight mixes, just over an hour, of some of the dubbiest, most spacious material Jones ever put to tape. The tracks collected on Un-used Re-Mix’s 1994-1995, the newest release in Staalplaat’s Muslimgauze Archive series, are too good to leave collecting dust, but Jones never got around to organizing or even titling them (except, perhaps, inside of his own head). The truly diligent might be able to track down the source for some of these tracks after hours poring over the rest of Muslimgauze’s vast discography, but no such trainspotting is needed to appreciate the smeared, haunting vocal and hand percussion of the third track, or the ominously rattling, echoing sixth track, or the heavy organ overlay that brings the last track as close to shoegaze as Muslimgauze ever came. [label info]

MUSLIMGAUZE -- "Zilver / Feel The Hiss" -- CD -- €11
2015 Staalplaat / Muslimgauze Archive, 30, (ltd. 500)
Experimental / Dub. Use the same kinds of devotional voices found on much of "Minaret Speaker", but here other voices are present too. Conversational or angry, male or female, English or French or Arabic, almost inaudible or forcing their way to the front of the music, these "Zilver Tracks" (the name based on a note Jones wrote on the tape) engage more directly with the world Jones was so fascinated with and tried to represent over and over again in his work as Muslimgauze. [label info]

MXM -- "Flesh-Biting Paedophile" -- CD -- €15
1995/2013 Industrial Recollections
Noise. A collaboration of Joe Roemer and Rodger Stella of MACRONYMPHA with Shohei Iwasaki of MONDE BRUITS. Reissue of a tape published by Mother Savage Noise Productions in 1995.

ONE DARK EYE -- "Death Is Knocking At The Door" -- CD-R -- €10
1997/2003 Self Abuse Records, (ltd. 100)
Noise. Side-project of MACRONYMPHA. Originally released in 1997 on the KDF (Kadef) label in Germany. Recorded and produced 1996.

ONE DARK EYE -- "Manic Depression" -- CD -- €10
1996/2012 Ljud & Bild Produktion, LBP007, (ltd. 300)
Noise. Experimental tape recordings by Rodger Stella (MACRONYMPHA) from the early to mid-nineties. Psychedelic analog noise and drone consisting of tape manipulation, obscure electronics, shortwave, field recordings and acoustic delay. [SoundOhm]

PREDOMINANCE -- "Nocturnal Gates Of Incidence" -- CD -- €10
2000/2012 Loki Foundation, LOKI 26
Originally released in 2000 the second album of Predominance marked another step further into new dimensions. Pulsating heavy background textures are contrasted by symphonic-monumental and rhythmic proportions, brooding walls of sweeping soundwaves and vocals as well. A deep ambient soundtrack that rises from the very center of a convoluted labyrinth and creates a unique image of ancient myths and extraterrestrial traces. [label info] Second edition with remastered sound and two bonus tracks taken from the "Nord Ambient Alliance" compilation (Cyclic Law, 2002).

2020 Zaplatka, ZPT024
Industrial / Electro / Rock. RAZMOTCHIKI KATUSHEK is an industrial electro duo, conceived and nurtured by two seasoned masters of the experimental scene: Ekaterina Fedorova (Iva Nova, ZGA, FIGS) and Remko Muermans (ex-ZEA, Holland). For several years they have been meticulously assembling and connecting the conceptual forms of electronics and industrial into an organic symbiosis, presenting the audience with a deeply original product at the intersection of these two worlds of music. These two veterans of the stage will immerse you in a balmy world of analogue effects, live and electronic rhythm, domestic noise and the positive constructivism of soothing factory sounds... The debut album is released in an unusual cut-out 4-panel digipak with foldtray and a card, includes a sticker set for replacing the original album title. [label info]

THE RITA -- "Bodies Bear Traces Of Carnal Violence" -- CD -- €15
2004 PACrec, PACrec109 / Troniks, TRO-150, (ltd. 1000)
Harsh Noise Wall. Pure sound influenced by Italian Giallo violence & harsh noise cassette culture. Extreme, dirty, low-end electronic crust. First proper cd release from this long-running Canadian cult act, following notable cdrs on Self Abuse Records & Chondritic Sound as well as several self released cassettes. Two tracks, 60+ minutes, including a collaboration with Texas sleaze sicko Mania (Taint). Black gloves and razors. [label info]

THE RITA -- "Thousands Of Dead Gods" -- CD -- €23
2006 PACrec, PACrec124 / Troniks, TRO-231, (ltd. 500)
Harsh Noise Wall. The Rita returns with his second full length cd, his ultimate tribute to the GREAT WHITE SHARK. Almost academic in his noise purity obsession, The Rita mercilessly charts every nuance of crunch & crumble, the space between demolition, white out & heavy flood. Dead Gods pushes nearly 60 minutes thick of RAW WALL, recorded live using source sound from great white shark cage diving. [label info]

THE RITA -- "The Voyage Of The Decima MAS" -- CD -- €20
2009 Troniks, TRO-293
Harsh Noise Wall. From the mind behind "Thousands Of Dead Gods" and "Bodies Bear Traces Of Carnal Violence" comes a sea of obsessed deliberation and suffocating HARSH WAVE. Sourced from live snorkeling murk, overdriven detail defines the unfathomable abyss. "The Voyage Of The Decima MAS" proves there is NO MORE HOPE. [label info]

ROTAT -- "Hussy Rescue" -- CD -- €10
2019 Obsessive Fundamental Realism, OFR-CD 05
Noise. New full-length album from this uprising Finnish dominator. Upfront and aggressive songs that offer both straight-to-the-point harsh noise and at the same time subtle and thought out song structures and very individualistic aspects. [Cold Spring]

RYR -- "116 G. OT R. A.G." -- CD-R -- €12
2005/2020 Agfa Archive, AGFA 01, (ltd. 50)
Martial Industrial / Sound Collage. A romantic blend of martial, harsh electronics and right-wing aesthetics, classics, ragged noise, whistles, marches, snatches of speeches. Thunderous stretching layers of sound, fragments of the past, overloaded memories, dark calling depths, pulsating air of a dream. Even deeper, more hidden. Ambiguity. Through the fusion of Martial industrial and Dark ambient, the task is to understand the inexplicable. The presence of the secret of a common European myth through a concrete slice of history... Reissue of the first RYR album, originally released in 2005 by the labels NEUROPA / VERDIKT88. New design and premium presentation for the 15th anniversary of the album: mini-artbook with 6-page booklet, 2 postcards (one artificially aged), sticker. [label info]

SACHER-PELZ -- "Zre Has Celp" -- CD -- €10
2014 L. White Records, LW-085, (ltd. 250)
Industrial / Noise. To the 35th anniversary and dedicated to SACHER-PELZ himself (1979/2014). SACHER-PELZ has returned back. But maybe he never went away. From the depths of the more radical and dark sonic experimentation here resurface a systematic arrangement composed of magmatic and hypnotic sounds. The listener will be fascinated by them, as long as he will free his mind and heart by the unnecessary weight proposed by the modern mass media and embraces the freedom of the post-industrial neuro-modular average. [label info]

SCANNER -- "Trawl" -- CD -- €13
2020 Aquarellist, aquarel 54-20, (ltd. 300)
Experimental / Dub. The track "Trawl" was recorded by Robin Rimbaud in 1996. In the same year, the Chreode label released a 12" record containing two remixes of this track by Bill Laswell and Mick Harris. This CD contains seven compositions: the original track, two remixes, two tracks from the same 1996 session and two new tracks recorded by Robin in November 2020 based on material from 1996. Packed in a 4-panel soft touch laminated digipak. [label info]

SEKTA PHOENIXA -- "The Jolly Bonfire of Emptiness" -- CD -- €10
2015 Акт-Продукт, [akt-produkt 23]
Experimental / Industrial / Spoken Word. The enigmatic, provocative and controversial, eluding any kind of definition, having survived break-up, schism and reformation, Sect of Phoenix comes to light with a new album - its first new statement in 14 years. Here, it is cut down to a duo of two key members, one of them having contributed the most to the establishment of a mythical 'cult' of SPh in its early years with his paradoxical lyrics and charismatic stage presence, the other one having produced all the recorded output of the Sect up to these days... Most of the material was recorded live in November 2013, and, while using the benefits of studio technology for creating a finer, more complex and more controlled sonic image, the Sect strives to preserve the electrifying magic of here and now interaction which manifests itself with especial keenness in best performances. The concert in Tomsk on November 20, 2013, that this album is based on, was one of such special performances. [label info]

SEWER ELECTION + TRERIKSROSET -- "The Killing Sessions" -- CD -- €25
2005/2007 Troniks, TRO-249 / Chondritic Sound, CH-175, (ltd. 500)
Harsh Noise from Sweden. A reissue of two cassettes ('Killing For Norrland' and 'Killing For Finland') originally released on Harsh Head Rituals.

STEEL HOOK PROSTHESES -- "Calm Morbidity" -- CD -- €10
2016 Malignant Records, TumorCD96
Industrial / Power Electronics. 15 years in and with 9 full length releases under their belt, it’s safe to say that the terminally morbid, Dallas based duo that is Steel Hook Prostheses are the undisputed flag bearers for American death industrial. Perhaps they have been for a long time, but if there was any doubt, it’s quickly erased within the first minutes of Calm Morbidity, their first full length since 2013’s The Empirics Guild. Once again, we find them channeling all things grim and grotesque, and while they don’t stray too far from the charnel house atmospherics you’ve come to expect, there’s a dynamic and dark energy that exists with Calm Morbidity that never fully existed before. From the heavily polluted and blackened drones, decrepit, percolating frequency beds, and acid dripping, highly processed vocals, everything about this release feels intensified and elevated. An immersive and riveting display of the macabre and unequivocally a high watermark in an already illustrious discography. In 6 panel DVD Digipak designed by Maurice De Jong of Gnaw Their Tongues. [label info]

STEEL HOOK PROSTHESES -- "The Empirics Guild" -- CD -- €10
2013 Malignant Records, TumorCD65
Industrial / Power Electronics. The first full length release since 2008's Atrocitizer, The Empirics Guild finds this Texas death industrial duo digging even deeper into the depths of depravity and clinical madness, having taking their time to create 12 tracks of gristly, necro-horror atmospheres and multi-layered, hallucinatory soundscapes, where shuddering waves of charred and blackened electronic filth meet heavily distorted, sadistic vocalizations. Ghastly and nightmarish, this is the soundtrack to surgery performed amidst filth and grime, with flickering lights, rusty scalpels, and absolutely no hope of anesthesia. SHP have always been adept at fusing dark, cinematic ambience with power electronics and they have certainly perfected that skill with The Empirics Guild. In 6 panel digipak with suitably gruesome artwork. [label info]

STEMCELL RESEARCH PROJECT -- "Charnel Houses" -- CD -- €10
2011 Syzmic Records, syzmic09
Death Industrial. Five songs inspired by death and post-mortem rituals with each passage delving deeper into the stygian abyss. Charnel Houses is profoundly imbued with feelings of despair brought forth with field recordings of actual autopsies taking place. Somber moments layered with metal percussion, white noise and rhythmic drone that envelopes the listener like a lead blanket. Mastered by John Stillings of Steel Hook Prosthesis. [White Centipede Noise]

STUDIO OF UNCONSCIOUS MUSIC -- "Perekati-Pustotu" -- CD -- €10
2019 Akt-Produkt, [akt-produkt 34]
Industrial / Techno. The first full-length studio album of SUM:techno – the techno-industrial hypostasis of the Siberian experimental formation STUDIO OF UNCONSCIOUS MUSIC. Tumbleweed-emptiness in the age of confluence of eyelids - either fog, or dawn, or the light of a source that does not exist... Within the Studio, there have always been a number of parallel projects, one of which is SUM:techno. The project was an attempt to occupy an intermediate position between experimental and pop music. We decided to play something danceable with a straight hard beat, and jokingly called it all "techno", although, in fact, we got industrial punk (later we dubbed all this "no-techno" - by analogy with no-wave)... The project originated back in 2012, during our techno-industrial improvisations in Novosibirsk. For the first time in a more or less mature form, no-techno manifested itself in St. Petersburg, at a concert in the now defunct smithy at the Karl Marx factory. Since then, the world has managed to turn upside down several times, and not in the best way, and now, finally, the album is ready... Almost all of these minimalistic and repetative songs about true life were played by us at concerts, except one. If we talk about the album as a whole, it's music for the dumb and hip-hop for corpses. It sounds at an apocalyptic zombie dance party somewhere in the outskirts of the world. All those bitten by the sun grow with rays that eventually end. Laughing despair and dizziness from decomposition rolls in all directions over the void and dissolves the brains in its own alikeness. The curtain - yet again - twitched. Let's go to the fields, we'll play there forever, every day - if you can still hear us. [label info]

TRERIKSROSET -- "Sexregler" -- CD -- €20
2002/2007 Troniks, TRO-261 / Chondritic Sound, CH-151, (ltd. 500)
Noise. Sexregler is solid release from noise artist Tommy Carlsson aka Treriksröset. The release is an exploration of dirty electronics in every sense of the word. The main sound source for this material, as Carlsson lays out in the linear notes, is his genitalia. For 46 minutes Carlsson explores the masturbatory nuances of crude sounds created from what I assume is a basic set-up of contact mics and effects pedals. All though the noise remains focused throughout, the limited sound palette does get tedious after awhile. I am glad Carlson decided to keep the length of his phallic inspired track just above LP length. [itzmehall, Discogs]

THE VOMIT ARSONIST -- "Meditations On Giving Up Completely" -- CD -- €10
2017 Malignant Records, TumorCD106
Death Industrial / Power Electronics. Anyone familiar with The Vomit Arsonist’s past body of work should know to expect a healthy dose of negativity and hopelessness with every release, but never has that been more true than with his 5th full length, Meditations on Giving Up Completely. There is no reinvention of the sound and no veering off course, but rather a narrowing of the sonic palette, condensed into a continual free-fall of complete despair and nihilism. As Andy Grant described it, Meditations is a release about "futility, failure, and no longer being able to find even a shred of worth in humanity". That mindset is perfectly captured and reflected in the stripped down, monolithic nature and sheer dense weight of the 7 tracks here, where distant furnace blasts and scraping metal abrasions churn amidst toxic fumes and opaque, polluted murk, the vocals roaring through the mix in thick sheets of distorted fury. Those with a fragile mental state may want to steer clear of this one, but for those that find solace with the curtains drawn or at the end of a rope, Meditations on Giving Up Completely is unwavering in its direction and resolute in its approach. [label info]

THE VOMIT ARSONIST -- "An Occasion For Death" -- CD -- €10
2013 Malignant Records, TumorCD67
Death Industrial / Power Electronics. When one looks at the hierarchy of US power electronics and death industrial, few names belong at the top like Rhode Island’s The Vomit Arsonist. The project of Andrew Grant since 2004, time has seen The Vomit Arsonist evolve into a major force, channeling aggression, negativity, and spite, and molding it into a focused, pinpoint display of barely restrained power and purely dark emotion. The 7 tracks found An Occasion for Death encapsulate this to near perfection, blending bleak, atmospheric drones and ominous synth layers with distorted frequency grind, mechanized rhythms, looping pulsations, and vocals that cut through the mix with unbridled animosity and ferocity. A welcome, and perhaps overdue addition to the Malignant roster! In 6 panel digipak, mastered by Steel Hook Audio. [label info]

THE VOMIT ARSONIST -- "Only Red" -- CD -- €10
2015 Malignant Records, TumorCD77
Death Industrial / Power Electronics. Two years after "An Occasion For Death", Andrew Grant's The Vomit Arsonist returns with a vengeance with his second full length for Malignant, "Only Red". Inspired and galvanized by Brighter Death Now's US shows in 2014, Grant's latest takes on an even more visceral and dynamic feel than works past, and is unquestionably the heaviest thing he's ever done. If An Occasion for Death showed moments of self discipline and hints of subtlety, no such restraint exists here, as everything about this record feels amped up to an entirely new realm of intensity... This is The Vomit Arsonist in full attack mode, as explosive and bludgeoning percussion loops emerge from a churning, monolithic pit of corrosive electronics, menacing transformer buzz, chain dragging atmospherics, and gasping machine exhalations. Throw in a heavy dose of processed, acidic vocals and the whole record becomes an adrenaline fueled ride, wrought with tension, extreme nihilism, and palpable hostility. With Only Red, Grant has laid down a new flag at the summit of an already impressive catalog. Final track is a remix of Go Without featuring Kristoffer Oustad. In 6 panel digipak, mastered by John Stillings. [label info]

ATTESTUPA -- "1867" -- 12" -- €10
2009 DNT Records, DNT #059, (ltd. 330)
Industrial / Experimental. A winter so harsh, a spring so cold and a summer so late. A dead harvest. The failure of the crop meant starvation and thousands and thousands of people died. Bark bread, lichen gruel and families slowly fading away. This bleak period, ended in 1869, resulted in that more Swedes than ever emigrated to Northern America and other places for a better life. Based around those years, Gothenburg's Ättestupa here creates an absolutely terrific soundtrack to this misery with their new 3-song EP. Exploring the dark past of their native country Sweden, this is a well-executed journey into the never ending well of hopelessness. Into the struggle of nature and mankind. The unique production is getting close to perfection, a raw and disgusting thick sonic bliss with a continuous crunch. A sharpened blend of noise, Kraut and black metal with a crude melancholic atmosphere. Vocals buried deep under the soil and guitars being more prominent. Organs, screeching metal junk, tape loops. Pounding drums. The recording reeks of bad times and tremendous coldness and it's hard to grasp for air. No hope and definitely no joy. Recorded during the first three months of 2009. Limited to 330 copies on black vinyl. [label info]

DIJKSTRA, RAYMOND -- "De Schroef" -- LP -- €10
2009 Le Souffleur, (ltd. 200)
Experimental. Perhaps our most beloved outsider in experimental music. Raymond Dijkstra never ceases to amaze me. 'De Schroef' ('the screw') is his biggest edition so far (I think), limited to 200 copies. That's not the only chance here. The music is ten pieces of maybe one minute to 90 seconds, ending in a silent lock groove and with lots of blank space in between those pieces. Meaning you have to get up to place the stylus into the next piece. Most odd. It doesn't end there. Each of the pieces seems to be a variation on the same theme. An organ/harmonium sound, scraping of glass; all done rapidly. But the proceedings are short and one is left to think its the same thing, but perhaps its not. That's the great thing about releases by Raymond Dijkstra. It leaves an endless amount of thinking about it. Is it same, or different? Why is it cut like this? Poetry. I think Dijkstra offers us sound poetry. Without words, but these ten poems are variations on a few sounds. It will surely annoy a few listeners, but no doubt the true fans of Dijkstra - count me in there - are amazed. Once again. The great outsider. [FdW, Vital Weekly]

MURDER BOOK -- "Wooden Enclosure" -- 12" + CD-R -- €10
2008 Turgid Animal, TA386
George Proctor´s MURDER BOOK project has been focusing on the more Mondo Cane side of heavy drone music and the more murderous side of old school industrial noise. This first vinyl outing is no different. The first and only side of this release is a full on bass/guitar kraut-styled work out from the depths of the Sparrow Pit. Slowly weaving and blurring itself into abyss. Ending with a slow growl of discomfort. The CD-r features two drawn out synth experiments from the tail end of this year to round off the proceedings. Grim. Laser-printed artwork loose inside a PVC sleeve with the record inside a white paper sleeve and housed in a black card outer sleeve. Simple like the music within. [label info]

MURNAU -- "Decoder" -- LP -- €10
2004 220N, 220N 17, (ltd. 300)
Power Electronics. The first single LP for the label, and somehow the more simple, condensed shape fits the "musical" content quite well: While earlier 220N releases (of which the Mürnau and Eisengrau, i.e. this artist's released formed the majority) were more freeform and experimental, this is a linear record that takes you on an enjoyable trip throughout, with some variety on the way: The A-side is pure powerelectronix, distortion and shouting with subcurrent bass rhythms, while B1 and B2 appear more subdued and with an old school/analogue feel before the final tracks slices everything apart with highpitched frequencies. Thoughtful, recommended. [label info]

ANAMNESIS -- "Aldan" -- C-40 -- €6
2020 Nazlo Records, NzR153, (ltd. 40)
Minimal / Glitch. These are images of a dark and cold Siberia engraved in the memory of a child. It is about a high mountain where the snow never melts, about empty streets, about an exploited mighty nature, abandoned with its guts spilling out. It is about a shattered nuclear plant, and black mornings when the freezing air stings the skin with its chilly needles. Landscapes that the child observes quietly, within a very slow motion of time, on which children hover. [from the artist]

Ambient / Experimental / Neoclassical. A one-time project of Alexander Chulkov (SIX DEAD BULGARIANS) created back in 1998 and dedicated to the exploration of the electrical conductivity of the body. "Human body is a natural conductor of electrical impulses, and different parts of the body have different resistance, capacitance and inductance, and thus, the human body can be used as a generator of the simplest signals. Some of the sounds used in this project are a natural background obtained as a result of the interaction of the human body and electrical impulses. Some pieces are completely recorded using sounds as described above. The human body is the synthesizer of the future." [from the author]

2016 Black Psychosis, BLACK05 / Vanity Recordings, [VR-003], (ltd. 80)
Power Electronics. When only pieces remain from a life of trauma, no dedication to the ego is too great. When the after taste of shame and guilt is unending and all-consuming, no offering of blood is sufficient. When every waking moment is a nightmare, no dosage is high enough... Concrete Mascara is proud to announce the newest document of depravity, “Delusion Rituals”. This cassette documents two complete live performances, from United Forces of Industrial II and M.A.P.S. Fest respectively. These recordings contain live renditions of material from “Blossoms of Shame”, “History of Ruin” and “The Pursuit of Hedonism”. [label info]

CONTENT NULLITY -- "Scorn of Totality" -- C-16 -- €5
2012 Audial Decimation Records, ADR016, (ltd. 200)
Power Electronics. Another vehement chapter from this young British power electronics / industrial artist. This EP is the link from the debut self titled album to works of the present and future. Traditional junk metal abuse and synthesizer cacophony collide with vicious, misanthropic vocals filled with hysteria and disgust. The raw lyrical content, since almost left behind in favour of ambiguity, makes this stand out as a definitively explicit addition to the growing discography. Expertly mastered by Thomas Garrison at Misanthrope Studio, with design by Stephen Wilson / Black Uroborus Illustrations. Professionally manufactured red tint cassettes with black ink in oversized case with cover and insert. [label info]

CONTROL -- "Over Maschinenfest, Paris And Berlin (Nudity, Blinded Eyes And Burning Gear)" -- C-50 -- €16
2014 Raubbau, RAUB-024 / Pflichtkauf, pflicht 056, (ltd. 100)
Industrial / Power Electronics. Much has been said and written about how Thomas Garrison has managed to breathe innovation into the restricted power electronics style through his unique one-shot-recording technique, and really, where others are concerned with rage and aggression, Control calls forth a whole range of emotions. Control is about sound, and this tape captures eight tracks in ear-splitting mixing desk quality. The majority of tracks is new or live exclusive, with “Anoxia” being the calm before the storm of multilayered piercing noises, distorted bass sounds and upfront vocals that have been tested positive to conjure up primordial fears. A 48-minute trip that’s not for the feeble-hearted! [label info]

2020 Pantheon, PAN137, (ltd. 30)
Ambient / Drone. According to the idea of the master of ambient crafts from the Netherlands, formerly known as BZAURIE, a new project appears with a unique kaleidoscopic journey through the world of sound, which takes you far away from any hustle and bustle and literally "tells a story", many stories, each of them unique every time - for any listener with closed eyes and open ears... With the last rays of the sun pouring through the clouds, turning everything into a game of colors and shadows ~ the story begins. It might be an adventure you wanted since being a kid, it can be something unexpected and surreal but certainly, it will be different every time. Simply because it happens in those sanctuaries of our mind which are opening when we close our eyes, when we start breathing slower and deeper, turning our mind's gaze inwards... When we go to sleeplands... This world remains unexplored despite the billions of adventurers sailing off the shores of their lives into the unknown. Who knows, what treasures are lying hidden in those labyrinths. You may only find out yourself. [label info]

2009 Cathartic Process, CP-20
Noise. Blaring, rumbling, crackling loud-as-fuck wall noise from RE Fontainbleau's second cassette on CP. "Girl On Film" is more extreme than "Snuff Victim" in every sense. I can't bring myself to upload mp3 samples, because it was recorded to tape, mastered on tape, and no digital file can capture the saturation and hiss that comes from your VUs slammed in the red with violent harsh walls tearing through the speakers.

2020 Global Pattern, glo089, (ltd. 25)
Ambient. The album was recorded in a difficult period - when the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19 began in China. On the one hand, this is peaceful ambient, but on the other, it conveys some restless feelings around what is happening. One track was partially recorded during an examination in the infectious ward of the Beijing Hospital. I always believe the good, bright thoughts remain with me. Listen to these sound notes that have home, industrial, and natural noises and textures. [from the artist]

[label info] "I tried to record the most sleepy and tactile landscapes and light textures. Pleasant noise is the basis for this work. You will be relaxed by the spatial phonetic whisper and echo effects.

MISHKIN, SASHA -- "Pastoral Breakfast" -- CS -- €8
2017 Cosmic Winnetou, #41, (ltd. 70)
Organ Music. Met Sasha many moons ago at a festival in Austria. During his set, which was pretty similar to the music recorded onto "Pastoral Breakfast", my heart was torn apart. He sat on stage just with his cheapo electric organ and played kind of homage to the ol' Johann Sebastian Bach as well as weird folk songs. Each and every note pronounced a heartaching longing for some place in the world he belongs to. Still not sure if this place exists in the "real" world, or if he wish to be at some kind of otherworldy place... Weirdo organ music for the romantic gnome inside of us. Psychedelic and pure at the same time. Go and buy this tape and play it to start your inner slide show with pictures of happy childhood memories. [label info]

MOONLIT SUN -- "Glass Skies" -- C-40 -- €7

ONEIRINE & RYOSUKE KIYASU -- "The Harp of Nihilism / The Twang of the Void" -- CS -- €8
2021 Metamodernoise, MN01
Noise Rock / Free Improvisation. Summer of 2018, Japanese citizen Ryosuke Kiyasu have played in Moscow at the "Normal Jazz Festival-2" that was held at the now-deceased Model T metal bar; firstly as part of the weirdo-noisegrind band Sete Star Sept, and the next day — with an equally exuberant solo show of a man with a snare drum. Between these events the musician was pumped with oneirine in the dark corridors of the former factory on Maryina Roshcha and led into the Red Eyes space, hidden in the depths of the same building. There the noise trip of The Endless Blockade founder and (for some time now) a member of the great and terrible Fushitsusha was documented. This document drove several people crazy: they tried to make it public and lose their mind in the process completely. And now METAMODERNOISE label offers it to widespread attention of a narrow circle of people in a cassette format. [label info]

2020 Pantheon, PAN164, (ltd. 30)
Ambient / Drone. A collection of the tropical Pacific mirages, overexposed over a winter train trip from Russia to Belarus to play a couple of gigs. Right before the mind journeying has become a worldwide [mandatory] trend, two projects from St. Peterburg managed to present their audio-visual imaginaries to the audience in a museum and a tea house. Two visions of a utopian future-past, the vague fantasies of the worlds in between here and there. The paradoxically renewing static of the constant movement, the rings that make spirals, that make pathways, that make melodies... All the way over the infinite labyrinth of imagination and back to the straightforward train trajectories. [label info]

PUSTOTA -- "Cinemaslyshaniye" -- C-40 -- €6
2021 BioSonar^Lo-End, 118/2021, (ltd. 10)
Minimal / Noise. A new trend of sound invasion of words and text into the natural / technical noise of tapes. This phonogram is a re-recording of a found tape which contained a recording of an unknown cinema about a blind poet... quite surreal by itself, yet primarily interesting for the big amount of soundless parts and specific concrete sound of the plot. Limited edition in paper sleeve. [label info]

2021 BioSonar^Lo-End, 117/2021, (ltd. 13)

Completely technological recording without any semantic content, but full of noise signals imitating digital interference, encoded transmissions and speech. Limited edition in paper sleeve.

SHARPWAIST -- "Poison Harbor" -- CS -- €9
2009 Razors And Medicine, Razors and Medicine 16
Noise / Power Electronics. Sharpwaist offers some of the best industrial/power electronics in the world and hails from my very own hometown Boston. It is the project of Carl Haas who has been active in the scene since the mid 2000s. This is some of Sharpwaist’s best work. The raw character that pervades most of his recordings is still here, yet this time it’s coupled with a ferocity not seen in his earlier endeavors. This material hits hard as hell. There is a dark edge in all of the tracks but it is succinctly mixed with aggression to create a fine honed point... [Existence Establishment]

SHIVER -- "The Taste Of Repent" -- C-30 -- €6
2011 Prairie Fire, PF027, (ltd. 40)
Noise. "The Taste Of Repent" is two tracks and 30 minutes of heavy psychological terror. "Breeding" is a dark dark thundering, feedback soundscape. It builds and builds – heaping pain upon pain until the inevitable breaking point hits with screams of torment. "Conscience is a Mutilation" takes half a step away from its soul-shattering predecessor. The addition of a sense of beauty to the proceedings makes the aural torture seem even crueler. Much like being dragged out of a dungeon and into the most visually stunning cathedral in order to receive a most vicious round of torture. [label info]

SPIES BOYS -- "Love (Anthology Vol. 1)" -- CS -- €8
2020 Winter Solstice, WS 012
Future Jazz / Experimental. The first part of the anthology includes all the lyrical mood from the sound arsenal of Spies Boys. “Love, love, love - these three concepts...” - as Zinoviy ​​Gerd used to say on behalf of the entertainer from the “Unusual Concert” play. Here we have put compositions from the period of cooperation with the singer Nadezhda Tikanova. We were looking somewhere in the funk area, and then we smoothly moved on to deepbluejazz. Heartfelt lyrics about the eternal, about love, about the search for oneself. Kilometers of electro piano, unhurried rhythms, stringy fretless bass... everything to take your mind off a little and look through a window glass, wet from the rain, somewhere into the distance. Melodies? As much as you wish! [label info]

SUNHIILOW -- "Whispers Of A Dream Wind" -- CS -- €7
2020 Pantheon, PAN145, (ltd. 30)
Ambient. «Sunhiilow is exploring the sounds from the lost cultures, creating new stories from the oldest collective imaginary» ~ and by doing that Valerie Magisson, the dreaming force behind the alias, creates an exquisite world full of gentle warmth and iridescent forms, an imaginary flora and fauna living its own ways of universal evolution. Known for her releases on some of the best cassette labels out there, Sunhiilow is a storyteller whose voice might not be familiar to many, but for those who once heard it stays forever as a special feeling somewhere deep inside their hearts... «Whispers of a Dream Wind» is a fairy tale, a diary of explorations of the world usually not seen or noticed, quiet nuances hidden in the textures of our world and glowing through the tiny sparkles on the surfaces of waters or crystals or leaves... This wind is always changing but at the same time it stays intact, it may whisper and sing through the knobs and wires, it may enter your dreams at night and give pleasant views of the world which is yet to come.

UNCLEAN / LAPOT -- "Sortovuosien Terrori / Represijų Metai" -- C-77 -- €7
2013 Terror, TR-17, (ltd. 100)
Power Electronics / Harsh Noise / Field Recordings. A little unexpectedly the release date of this album is the same with Independence day in Lithuania which was declared in 1918 02 16. It's interesting because more than a year ago when we were talking about the concept of the upcoming album, the idea was to associate it with repressions of Russians in the beginning of XXth century in Finland and Lithuania. Different countries, different path how they saved their identity up to this day, but overall impressions, when looking to these events hundred years ago are somewhat similar. Unclean - Finnish harsh noise/power electronics project. For my ears, his output is the strongest in this album of all his discography. Filthy and rough noise with bitter taste of hate. Lapot presents one long, uneasy track, constructed of mostly untouched field recordings. [label info]

Conveying intimacy inside, dealing with the fragility not inherent to our everyday lives, this work reveals the pure, uncut vision of the twilight mindstate by trying to catch a balance between unconciousness stream, depletion of sensation, spatial and temporal disorientation and involuntary and impulsive movements. The sound and concept are formed by isolated meditation, experimental work with traditional musical instruments and obscure sound gear manipulations. Recorded and mixed by Vindfaengsel. [label info]

ZHERTVOPRINOSHENIYA -- "Nastupila Pustota (The Emptiness Has Come)" -- CS -- €8
2021 NEN Records, NEN52 / Akt-Produkt, AP 47, (ltd. 33)
Noise Rock / Doom Metal. NEN Records and Akt-Produkt present a second studio album by Zhertvoprinoshenya. In music it reproduces the crushing black metal atmosphere by means of a heavy improvisational orchestra. In ideas the album is dedicated to the political depression, which has particularly escalated in Russia lately... According to the vocalist and author of lyrics Max Stropov, Zhertvoprinoshenya is closely connected to another political and artistic project — Party of the Dead. However, the Party is charged with the paradoxical positive idea of universal justice and, therefore, is alien to the mesmerized stare at death and decay. For Zhertvoprinoshenya, such a stare is intrinsic. It is a fascination in the face of death, not personal death, but the death of others... Zhertvoprinoshenya do not tell us all what to do — those of us who stare face-to-face, but they do pose a kind of agonizing question... The album is dedicated to right-conservative turns and the gloomy timelessness of reaction. [label info]

An installation / concert which took part in a series of events called "33 sounds: the ABC of Petersburg's experiment" on 05.10.2019. During the re- or deconstruction we used "Utyugon" – the legendary "first Soviet synthesizer", invented at least in 1983 by Timur Novikov and Ivan Sotnikov (and if you believe Sergey Kyryokhin, it was assembled by Vladimir Mayakovskiy). The release is dedicated to the 666th anniversary of Sergey Kuryokhin. [label info]

ZUBOFF SEX STAR -- "Ty (You)" -- CS -- €8
2021 Iconic Promo, 038, (ltd. 50)
New Wave. The album "You" by ZUBOFF SEX STAR was recorded in the summer of 1999 in the basement of the Children's Art House in Fryazino, Moscow region. The bands line-up was formed by Dmitry Zubov after the tragic collapse of one of the leading bands in Fryazino at that time – INTERESTED PERSONS, whose vocalist was killed by street bandits the day before. The drummer Dmitry Lantukh and the guitarist Dmitry Generalov were recruited by Zubov in SEX STAR, and the bass player Evgeny Solovyov went with Roman Sidorov to play trip-hop in FATAL... This cassette contains a number of hits and demonstrates Zubov's potential as a singer-songwriter, and also tells a bit about the future music of ZUBOFF SEX SHOP. The cassette is also interesting as evidence of the stormy musical activity that took place in the Fryazino Basement at that time... Dmitry Zubov's debut album is a unique artifact, marker and evidence of the creative activity of the Fryazino music community of the late nineties and will take an honorable place in your collection. [Evgeny Solovyov]

ZINCHENKO, DANIIL -- "Tinnitus" -- VHS -- €8
2020 Iconic Promo, 038
Daniil Zinchenko's film looks at industrial music as a way to talk about death. The plot is triggered by a conversation between composer EVGENY VORONOVSKY (Cisfinitum) and music researcher DMITRY VASILIEV, in which they talk about musicians of the 1990s and 2000s, who worked with the theme of death. Those who worked, as many of them are no longer alive (suicide, drugs and other mysterious circumstances). The perilous area of action which these sound artists chose for themselves consumed them and destroyed them. Against this background, one of the characters of the film dies under highly controversial circumstances. Real death materializes from talking about it, and the film begins to change, acquiring new characters, stories and meanings. Russian language, English subtitles. [afisha.ru]

ARKHAION -- "When Gods Walked The Earth" -- CD-R -- €7
2012 Ufa Muzak, UFA57, (ltd. 150)
Heroic / Mythical sympho neoclassic ambient. Human history is not what is seems for the majority of modern people today. There's no evolutionary and progressive history of development. The primitive modern science can only suppose that it all started about 8000-6000 years B.C. The raven darkness of this delusion is penetrated by other theories which may seem to be completely fantastic, talking about cyclic models of development. 10.000 years before the Common Era humanity was at the peak of cosmic growth and highest development. All myths and heroic eposes, ciphered and allegorical, tell about that times. In those times there was a different race on Earth, now we call them Gods. The great ancestors built gigantic cities, they were developing and lived according to the highest wisdom. This race was certainly of cosmic origin, and they laid the foundation of the whole history on this planet. There were humans like us too, who lived in the same time with the highest creatures, the Gods, and received knowledge from them. First kings described in ancient myths were the offsprings of the Gods - they belonged to the other level and deserved complete worship. Their power allowed them to reach the highest spiritual state, the biggest progress of science of much more absolute character, to build the cities of unseen constructions. The power of human beings came from the Gods who gave them self-consciousness and combined their fate with their own great fate and goal within the Universe. It started 200.000 years ago. Majestic, triumphant and cryptic album of the conceptual project Arkhaion opens up slowly and calmly like movement of a huge body in cosmic space. Everything is undisturbed and grandiose, white light divides in spectral colours and the micro-symbol starts rotating, a mandala containing the new model of the Universe. Ambient and symphonic structures repeat the process of matter efflux from the stars. Immersion in music is like obtaining wings for a short time enough to see the fabulous picture from the bird view. Genetic memory will allow only a few to dive deeper into the visionary space of the Ancient and live some more time there. 8 tracks, 52 minutes, pro-CDR, 8-page booklet with 8 myths. [press-release]

ASTRO & CORNUCOPIA -- "Deep Wind" -- CD -- €7
2010 Quasi Pop Records, QPOP CD055, (ltd. 500)
Noise / Psychedelic. The second collaboration between Japanese noise legend Hiroshi Hasegawa (Astro) and duo Cornucopia from Puerto Rico, though the first one released on CD. Each from two tracks is from the particular artist, and based on opponent's sound sources. Totally psychedelic record, often in extreme frequences & dynamics, it features some Cornucopia's trademark pulsating sounds, while Astro's track is unstopable stream of deep, heavy and slow as hell noise magma. Physical, brutal and meditative. Pure beauty of modern extreme electronic music. [press-release]

BARBAROSSA UMTRUNK -- "Der Talisman des Rosenkreuzers" -- CD -- €8
2012 Ufa Muzak, UFA 49, (ltd. 400)
Military pop / Ethereal neoclassic. We present the fundamental work by the French musical formation completely dedicated to the mysterious personality of Baron Rudolf von Sebottendorf and his work "Der Talisman des Rosenkreuzers" published in 1925 in Germany. One of the founders of powerful secret organisation "Thule Society", a member of Turkish masonic lodge "Order of Rose Wreath", a numerologist, an occultist, a Sufi practicioner with misty entangled fate - he fits very well for a subject of detailed study, and one of the forms of it is this album. Musically, you'll hear one of the most powerful combinations of martial, neoclassic and ambient. From the very first seconds it goes deep in the significant years of the XX century, grandiose flashes - slices of troublous times, exotic geographic locations, dangerous people, occult-war intrigues and famous mystical German movement. Walls of heavy drones, explosive drumming and songs of dervishes, sublime samples of classics and dark rhythms encoded by electronics, a whisper from the other world, making heart beat high. During all the long and comprehensive material there is an intuitive investigation of entangled weltanschauung of "the baron", a combination of sufism, masonry and aryosophy. 13 tracks, 70 minutes, 6 panel cardboard sleeve. [press-release]

BELORUKOV / BOSSHARD / DENZIER / MARKVART -- "Bizarre Perspectives" -- CD-R -- €7
2020 Akt-Produkt, 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]

2011 Ufa Muzak, UFA 42, (ltd. 120)
Power Electronics. Boundless distance of dark areas, corridors, side streets, bottomless niches. Catacombs of endless labyrinth, suppressing with monumentality of its cruelty. Everyone who is here feels horrifying despair, because this territory is not somewhere outside, it is inside of people. Those who are entrapped, beaten and humiliated. Who lives in a country where treachery and violence has become the basis, where all human rights are defied, and there's only one freedom left: survival and slave submission. The project of harsh analogue anti-music in Power Electronics style, presents its requiem suite of the basics of people's structure resulted in a formula: "Hate your neighbour as yourself". Eight tracks of manic depressive convilsions. Sick therapy session either going to cure you, or plunge deeper in the abyss of the vicious circle. To all born in the period of new distemper. Russia is an ordeal... 8 tracks, 45 minutes, 8-page cardboard booklet. [press-release]

DOR -- "Something Without A Name" -- CD-R -- €7
2012 Ufa Muzak, UFA 52, (ltd. 120)
Power Electronics / Angst Pop / Shoegaze. Entering the forbidden territories can turn into nothing but total change. Returning into habitual environment is a catastrophic experience, strongest shock of striking difference. Familiar things, people, feelings, dreams turn out to be covered with thin layer of rot and decay. Time of absence turned into "time" of instand death, past and future combined in a dead-end, hidden from the visible existence, and everted to destroy everything completely. If once you touch this hardly visible gray mirage, the objects and forms of living and non-living nature turn into cloud of ashes. That's exactly why there are only two ways: do not enter, or do not return. The second album of DOR presents the radical view of another world. This is not the complete oblivion of the present, but already highly intensive attention to those who stayed at this side. Hammering as pales for the construction of huge columbarium with thousands of non-existing names, philosophic shots, tracks of this album call in there. While listening to them one has to concentrate not to be carried away... 7 tracks, 50 minutes, 6-panel cardboard sleeve with a postcard. [press-release]

ESCUADRON DE LA MUERTE -- "Omnia Vincit Mors" -- CD-R -- €7
2010 Ufa Muzak, UFA 34, (ltd. 141)
Apocalyptic Noise / Power Electronics. Going wind in black pits, in ropes with no way out. This is the situation of reality. All of you are sitting tied to chairs, and information goes right in your brain. Abnormal, infinitely violent and compressed. Blood, lies, hunger, money. Smell of a burned human being and nature of depravity felt in killing fields. Bile of the world, in all corners of constant inconceivable depression. The project from South America presents an hour of music full of total strain and moral hardiness. This is not just noise in it's common form, this is a completely new level where this project exists, leaving behind all rivals. Prepare for adrenaline shock and remember - there's no way out. Escuadron De La Muerte is the music of crisis, all and everything, without an end. [press-release]

FLUE -- "Beyond The Edge Of Nowhere" -- CD -- €10
2007 Diophantine Discs, n = 7, (ltd. 500)
"Beyond the Edge of Nowhere" is Flue's first full-length album, following the trio's debut 7" in 1999 on Obuh. This is a wonderfully atmospheric and experimental recording: the enchanting and mysterious sounds are created largely from guitars, bass, and synth, imparting an extremely unique feel to the work. It is certainly a very active work, with many diverse elements and threads fused and juxtaposed together (often simultaneously) into a cohesive whole, lasting for fifty minutes... Flue consists of three figures from the Bay Area experimental music scene: Mason Jones, Jason Stein, and Chris Miller. Mason is known through his solo work, the classic Trance project, and his Charnel Music label. He has also been a member of many groups, including SubArachnoid Space and Culper Ring. Jason has been a member of SubArachnoid Space and Tekachi, and Chris has also been a member of Tekachi. This album features guest contributions from Geoff Walker (Gravitar)... The CD comes packaged in an elegant blue paper wallet with silver printing. [press-release]

INADE -- "The Crackling Of The Anonymous" -- CD -- €10
2001 Loki Foundation, LOKI29
After 5 years since the last studio album Aldebaran, we can finally announce the release of a new full lenght work. With The Crackling Of The Anonymous, Inade move beyond all pre-conceived notions of sonic creativity. The plethora of puzzle pieces that interconnect in the expanding universe that Inade unwaveringly explores have grown amorphous, no longer defined by distinct outlines, melding as one whole, obscure entity. The expansion comes in many levels, incorporating the vast parameters of time, dimension and reality as viable participants in Inade's aural objective: to shine a light on the enigmatic unknown and give it a vague silhouette. The dark and hallucinatory masterwork that is The Crackling Of The Anonymous, is constructed via the never heard utterances of the void, while tapping into the psyche of the impossible. A stunning release that defies all logic because it creates its own! [press-release]

J ORPHIC / EPOCH / TSIDMZ -- "Unsere Weltanschauung" -- CD -- €10
2015 UFA Muzak, UFA68 / Sulphur Flowers, SF5, (ltd. 300)
Combative martial industrial / Neoclassic. Ladies and Gentlemen, UFA Muzak presents you the fresh almanac album from the new names of the European industrial underground. This recording features a dozen of chapters comprising musically and artistically all the important events in history, politics and economy from the traditional point of view of these artists who give special meaning to their work. You will have the complete image of aesthetical and cultural movement, inalterably keeping the idea of resistance against the modern decay, which, we have to say, increases its power and scale with every year. Back in 1938 Julius Evola wrote in German press, that a European started with eliminating the hierarchy inside of him and used his freedom for spiritual destruction, and only then called these phenomena of decline and decay with such innocent words as "progress" and "democracy". The music of these projects loudly claims one should not forget about the spiritual factors of the real European Unity which is now subsituted by such an absolutely degenerating market phenomenon as European Union. The album is split in three parts and each of them brings its own colour to the whole picture. J ORPHIC: Epic symphonic aquarelles of the various chapters of history in periods of especially solemn, triumphant and critical moments. As if you're in the Vienna Opera caught by fire, but the concert doesn't stop until the last line is crossed. EPOCH: Plunges you in a constrained world of hypnotic techno rhythms combining melodic anxiety with looped orders / incantations. No concession to the New World Order! The head is swirling of stupefying adrenalin raising its amount in blood. TSIDMZ: Here oriental tunes melt incredibly with waltzes of the previous century and clash of the cavalry timpani. Restless whisper spells the possibility of the Fourth World War amidst the unstopping mechanichal rattle. Despite of using the whole pleiad of sonic colours, "Unsere Weltanschauung" sounds as a united whole, and it offers some surprises even for the very experienced genre addicts. Carthago delenda est! 12 tracks, 63 minutes, 8-page booklet. [press-release]

LUNDE, ERIC -- "Mimefistofele" -- CD -- €10
2011 TraitMediaWorks, tmw030
Experimental / Noise. Are you familiar with opera? Then Boito's Mefistofele ought rank right up there, despite the sickening stench of an omnipresent g*d, but the devil has the game in this one and its worth listening to "son lo spirito che nega sempre tutto". Anyway. Eric Lunde has taken the first act of this beloved opera and given it the reduplication treatment. Layered and processed, it barely sounds like the original, which was the intent. Harsh, nearly criminal assault on this beloved masterpiece of evil, sin and redemption, except that now the devil comes out on top... [label info]

MACHINEFABRIEK -- "Vloed" -- CD -- €10
2008/2010 Cold Spring, CSR138CD
'Vloed' is a collection of (slightly edited) live performances, recorded between 2006 and 2008 in Amsterdam and Den Haag. "All performances find Machinefabriek in fine form, offering up thick billows of warm guitar shimmer, fluttery staticky ambience, and at one point some uncharacteristically heavy super distorted metallic guitar, but here, it's not so much metal as simply a mighty drone, thick and throbbing and super intense. There are long stretches of near silence and super minimal high end drone, glimmering slow building crescendos, squalls of distorted choral buzz, warm whirring metallic reverberations, shimmery and dense black dronemusik, all the stuff we love about Machinefabriek" (Aquarius). Beautifully remastered with a 20-minute bonus track, 'Vloed' captures the immersive live experience of a Machinefabriek concert. Presented in a stunning matt digipak with modified artwork.

MILLER, SCOTT / LEE CAMFIELD / MERZBOW -- "No Closure" -- CD -- €12
2013 Cold Spring, CSR185CD
"No Closure" is the collaborative output of ex-Sutekh Hexen members Scott Miller and Lee Camfield, with Japanese noise mastermind, Masami Akita, aka Merzbow. Mixing elements of psychedelia, black metal, doom and industrial music, the three musicians created a spellbinding work of experimental art... Conceptually crafted in a dark basement recording studio in the Mission District of San Francisco and later fleshed out in Tokyo, Japan, Miller, Camfield and Akita have completely pushed the boundaries of sound far beyond their individual comfort zones. With the implementation of standard instruments being force fed through loop pedals and precise layering, multi-instrumentalists Miller and Camfield set out to build an album rooted deep in the exploitation of intentional rhythms and deliberate patterning... Through their use of guitar, bass, drums, organs, synths and vocals, purposely devoid of their usual feedback drenched and oscillator projections, they left the inevitable incorporation of varied sound manipulation and textures strictly to Akita, thus giving birth to these two tracks. A 44 minute long masterpiece of epic mind warping experimental composition. [press-release]

TEATRO SATANICO -- "Der Tod In Venedig" -- CD -- €10
2016 Ufa Muzak, UFA72, (ltd. 170)
Macabre Synth / Cold Necro Wave / Experimental. Here we have a unique release - reissue of the long sold out album, so unusual that its extravagance can only compete with the cause of such a collection of rare compositions. The album title sounds a bit pretentious, but it has very few lines of contact with famous literary and cinematographic sources. "Death in Venice" refers to the famous "Island of the Dead - San Michele", the necropolis, privileged refuge for the dead of this city on the water. This place is famous for the numerous burial places of renowed artists, and already in the second number we meet one of the "Cantos" by Ezra Pound who found his last resort in this place. Free poetry of this eminent American rebellion has to be heard, not read... music as expression, words as echoes, spoken long time ago. The Italians will never disown their sacred and forbidden figures of their culture, and the third number features lines from the monster novel, the mystery novel, unfinished, interrupted by the author's death - "Il Petrolio" by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Sound design, musical patterns, peculiar flow of images made of deadly techno rhythms and hissing layering synthesizer backgrounds. Spiral up further, another symbolic figure of Julius Evola is waiting for us. Text from the book "Meditations on the Peaks" disclosing the sacred symbolism of mountains as habitation of gods, where rulers and warriors go, where yogis achieve full liberation. The atmosphere is rarefied, so little oxygen that one has to breath deeply, feeling ringing in ears because of pressure, but the beauty has to overpower all unpleasant feelings. What next? The song with the same title as a theoretic book about suicide, we hear flappings of predatory owls in the night. From which world have these messengers come? Or was it a gondola that brought us to cypresses of San Michele? It's early to disembark, the rhythm pulls swings up and down, up and down.

TELOOPERATOR -- "Crions" -- CS -- €7
1999/2015 NEN Records, NEN01, (ltd. 33)
Telooperator is a 'salute' smelling of low-end port "Agdam" and iron red-hot with the sun from Rostov-on-Don of Russian "dashing nineties". The only record of Telooperator, Crions, is soaked in science fiction. At the same time this is a full-blooded commentary on Russian reality of millennium end, which was fun and scary as the world was bulging at the seams. Still Crions value should not be reduced to an archive value. It is something more than a sample of an early wave of Russian post-industrial, a product of the age of net-zine RWCDAX and SEVER mailing list. This is a demonstration how absence of map or ignorance of genre boundaries promotes discoveries. A minimalistic burst of power electronics slipping into catatonic pseudo-techno sounds fierce, sometimes naive, but always refreshing and well-timed. Recorded by Konstantin Mezer (SAL SOLARIS) in 1997-1998. First version appeared on now defunct Moscow label Grief Recordings in 1999. Remastered in 2015 by Arnold_pR (REUTOFF). Cover photo: Polina Vrublevskaya. [label info]

TROUM -- "Acouasme" -- CD -- €10
2015 Cold Spring, CSR213CD
After the much praised collaboration with RAISON D’ETRE released summer 2015 (“De Aeris In Sublunaria Influxu”) and the final volume of the ‘Power Romantic’ trilogy with “Mare Morphosis” in late 2013, “Acouasme” is the first full length album from TROUM in over 2 years. With this album, TROUM wanted to go in a completely different direction, creating a ‘harsher’ and more ‘Industrial’ sounding album as a contrast to previous releases. But through the trademark troumatic machining, the final result doesn’t sound at all like standard harsh noise – it’s rather industrial noise as if filtered through a feverish dream, through a deranged perception. The six long tracks of pestering transrational drones on “Acouasme” sound like an aural psychiatric symptom, a humming hallucination leaving the stable reality. [press-release]

TROUM -- "Mare Idiophonika" -- CD -- €10
2010 Silken Tofu, stx.12, (ltd. 500)
Mare Idiophonika ('The Self-Playing Ocean') is the new album by the German duo TROUM and contains the studio-version of the live programme Troum performed in 2007, with a new ending added later. Using bass, guitars, metal objects, voices and choirs and for the first time also singing-bowls and ‘dry’ beats Troum creates yet another magnificent journey into unknown dimensions. Its sounds are stunning and enchanting, leaving one in a state of bewilderment while exploring the world of the unconscious. With its compelling drones and haunting atmosphere Mare Idiophonika is a masterpiece of transcendental soundscapes. It is a mind-blowing dreamy and moving experience, reaching out towards the inner self and beyond. [press-release] European edition in oversized cardboard folder with silver print.

TROUM -- "Syzygie" -- CD -- €10
2013 Cold Spring, CSR183CD
Formed by Glit[S]ch and Baraka[H] in 1997, Troum rose from the ashes of Maeror Tri. The duo create unbearably beautiful drones, multi-layered transcendental noise, and highly atmospheric dream-muzak. Syzygie: Zusammenkunft und Gegenschein zweier Planeten, or: an antithetic relationship between (personified) beings of the spiritual world and their shadows. A collection of rare / deleted tracks from compilations Vol. II (1999-2002).

TROUM -- "Tjukurrpa (part two: drones)" -- CD -- €10
Transgredient Records, TR-01b
This part two is dedicated to "drones", presenting five highly atmospheric and droning tracks ranging from minimal to monumental sounds, from dark ambient to more ritualistic areas: these are drones to loose your rational mind in. The music on Tjukurrpa II is made by loops based on metal-sounds, percussion & other more obscure sources, as well as mouth-organ, choirs, guitars, and effects. [press release]

TROUM -- "Tjukurrpa (part three: rhythms and pulsations)" -- CD -- €10
2003 Transgredient Records, TR-01c
Dronecore. This is the third part in Troum's Tjukurrpa-trilogy, following part 1 (harmonies) and part 2 (drones). This final part is dedicated to "rhythms" and "pulsations", with a focus on rhythmic, pounding, looping & repetitive elements and structures. With Tjukurrpa 3, Troum shows a not so well known side, using the trance-power of repetitive textures. In every of the seven extensive tracks (playtime 66+ min) rhythms in various moods build the basis: from smooth ambience-pulsations over ritualistic surroundings up to ecstatic pounding harshness, from underneath & soft pulsative patterns up to evolving harsh & overwhelming rhythmic loops. The music on Tjukurrpa 3 is made by raw & processed loops & handplayed percussion, along with electric guitar & bass, balalaika, mouth organ, male & female human voice, flute, and accordeon. No samplers, synths or computers used. [press-release]

A tape for purists who does not care about the names, titles and medals, but cares about noise and it's quality. [label info]

VERDANT -- "Sincerity" -- CD -- €10
2013 Existence Establishment, EE17, (ltd. 200)
Power Electronics. Verdant is Zach Adams who is also the man behind BKPR the esoteric and obtuse harsh noise project of relative obscurity. With this new work Adams presents a new dimension to noise in the form of quiet power electronics. The work of Verdant focuses on spoken word, secret promises, dusty corners, delicate instruments, and obsolete equipment. In the span of a few tracks Verdant’s sound can range from a seething attack of brooding noise and industrial to carefully constructed soundscapes that have been packed away in the attic of an old victorian where even the walls whisper of the things they’ve seen. Sincerity opens up a complex inner world of lost loves, silent betrayals, hidden jealousies, and blind grief forcing the listener to stumble in the darkness of a familiar place. The album is limited to 200 copies in a full-color 4 panel digipak. [press-release]

WILL OVER MATTER -- "Lust For Knowledge" -- CD -- €10
2011 Freak Animal Records
Industrial / Dark Ambient / Noise. Freak Animal Records is proud to present new album of Will Over Matter. Band continues its path to new dimensions. Utterly unique approach bordering genius and utterly insane. Making choices that nobody else dares. Will Over Matter's take on esoteric-industrial noise abandons the cliche's of dark ambient/reverb drenched ritual muzak etc. It doesn't sound "retro", yet approach has more in common to M.B. and Musiikkivyöry for example, than contemporary noise. [label info]

VARIOUS ARTISTS -- "Ivan The Terrible" -- 2 CD -- €15
2015 Ufa Muzak, UFA 70 / Anenerbe Music Club, (ltd. 300)
Bombastic martial / Strange Neofolk / Weird electronic / Obscure ambient. Ufa Muzak in cooperation with Anenerbe Music Club presents to all fans of epic, conceptual and electronic music this 2-CD album with a collection of tracks from bands from all around the world, dedicated to the film by Sergey Eisenstein "Ivan The Terrible" (1945-1958). Over 100 minutes of the most varied and interesting sonic palette present the contemporary soundtrack to the motion picture which is a milestone in historical cinema. Big and complex work which was never entirely finished (being shot during the World War II, 2nd part released many years after the first one, 3rd part remained only in screenplay, preliminary sketches and notes), containing mystical prophetic motives of the tragic role of the country at the crossroads of world history, offering most violent physical and moral ordeals. The very image of Ivan IV The Terrible, ruling Russia during 50 years in uneasy times, is very ambiguous and open for research, and at the same time it is a historical symbol of those times, inspiring not only science workers, but also artists to create works in honour of his name. Having this monumental picture created by the genious director, now the musicians make no less painstaking work to express the breath of those dark times, soaked in dissension, wars, tyranny, oprichnina and constant civil strifes. If you care about the history of Russia, history of cinema and its masterpieces, actual and thoughtful Industrial / Neo-Folk scene, be sure this album will bring a lot of pleasant surprises. The Word and the Deed. NOISES OF RUSSIA, AIN SOPH, L'EFFET C'EST MOI, TEATRO SATANICO, SCHRK, TSIDMZ, ZLYDOTA, LONSAI MAIKOV, PARZIVAL, DER ARBEITER, VIR', MOON FAR AWAY, NECROPHONIX, REL', BARBAROSSA UMTRUNK, NEVOD, ANENERBE MUSIC CLUB, SPECTRE.
