Right now, GENOCIDE ORGAN - Mind Control

More brilliant SPK worship from Deutschlands finest! More great film samples. Hate has Tim Roth spewing his vitriol in brutal 80's film Made in Britain.

GO goes very well with doing weights.

Last night:

V/A -- Neue Deutsche Post Avantgarde LP (Audi Plex, 1988)
Someone wanted me to make a list of ten "essential" releases, a quest that I should have laughed at and ignored right away, but I was obviously not thinking straight. Making lists take time. At least when you try to compress several years of listening into a mere ten releases. Oh well, the good thing is that it gives you an excuse to go through the collection to find, and re-evaluate, those releases that you remember as being great, but haven't listened to recently. This comp LP is one of them, compiled by Asmus Tietchens in 1986-87 it gives a pretty good view of German experimental music from that time. Some tracks are absolutely amazing still, but some of them sound dated, and some of them I must have winced at all the time but forgot how bad they were. Cranioclast are great, as they tend to be, Graf Haufen's track is a weird field recording track that sounds like a mic rubbing against a windbreaker jacket -- possibly my favourite track on the whole comp, Werkbund does a good job also. H.N.A.S. sound very dated and the track is mainly bass guitar + electric guitar with a much too clean and boring sound, and Gerechtigkeits Liga is pretty much unlistenable rhythmic constipated industrial cliche stuff. Not one for any top-ten list, but still a decent comp that made more of an impact on me back then than it does when I listen to it now.

Narwal -- The Album LP (De Fabriek/Artware, 1991)
Damn, I like this album. Versatile ambient synthetic and acoustic free-flowing and constantly shifting layers of sound that make up two massive tracks on the (approx 50 mins.) LP. Lots of "traditional" psychedelic moves -- there is even a sitar on there that put a big smile on my face. Ambient stuff that never sits still long enough to make you restless. Beautiful all the way, from the handprinted poster sleeve all the way through to the end groove.

Today:

V/A -- Für Ilse Koch LP (Come Organisation, 1982)
This was one of the first true (trve) power electronics albums that I heard. Got it on tape from an older acquaintance when I was 14 I think... So needless to say it has always been a formative experience of great importance to me. Listening to it now, it is kind of funny that it manages to squeeze together so mamy of those names that are usually connected with "industrial cliches" -- Manson is here, some Himmler speech, Jim Jones is sampled, even Aleister Crowley (doesn't feel really Come Org, does it?), etc. The NWW track is sheer brilliance, Etat Brut is absolutely killer, Consumer Electronics, Whitehouse, MB, Club Moral (oh, I mean Wiking DDV), and the rest of the gang all contribute with great tracks. Absolutely essential heavy-weight comp, very well put together.

Joe & Joe -- s/t LP (LAFMS, 2006)
Holy fuck, someone is selling this on discogs -- asking price €150... weird. Not much I can say here, I think this is a great LP (but hardly €150-price-tag-great), very understated and pleasant tape collages, more or less stays in the same mood all through the LP. Murky and obscure, I would advise you to turn up the volume to enhance the listening experience.

Controlled Bleeding -- Knees And Bones LP (Psychout Productions, 1985)
Not the first CB I heard, but the one that will always be number one for me. Supreme heaviness all around. Bits of this are very close to current US noise blast + screaming style power electronics. The most arousing bits are the extreme metal destruction on the b-side, true ear candy. Could definitely be a contender for that damn list.

Zone Nord -- Marche Noir/Denrees Diverses LP (private, 1983)
The word that comes to mind is ROUGH. The HNW freaks would probably dig this one a lot, with it's heavy crunchiness and delightful single-mindedness, hellbent for sonic destruction. The sound does not appear to be layered, but rather a pretty "simple" recording yet with undeniable power. Hard to find pressing of 286 copies. Why hasn't this been reissued yet?


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on December 18, 2009, 08:40:22 AM
Controlled Bleeding have said in interviews that their old LP's sounded always weaker than tape version of them. I wonder if anyone actually got the 5xCD box set from Hong Kong? Paid, but still waiting to it to mailorder. I hope those recordings has been left untouched by the treatment he did for some recent CD's. Cutting bass, cutting dymanics, all compressed to flatness which is hardly ever good term when talking about noise.

I was just listening to promo tape or LR. One of the artists in Posh Isolation label crew. Heavy as fuck. Total sub-bass crawl filthy PE rumble. In a ways, one could file them next to Pestdemon, but perhaps more "punk". Simpler structures, wilder screaming voice, but still sort of structured in these shorter songs. LR getting better all the time. And show that someone should really compile NEW BLOOD comp. LP "Neue International Post industrial 2010" ? New bands with just handful of tapes or one / two other releases popping up here and there, who could represent themselves well in selected piece of 5-10 minutes.

NEUE DEUTSCHE POST AVANTGARDE
I found this from a record fare in Turku last spring for 10 euros from some prog guy's stash. Quite unlikely discovery in Finland (well, at least outside the gates of Sarvilevyt!), maybe the first S.B.O.T.H.I. LP next time...BTW, perhaps should start a separate topic on compilations?

Working at home today and just perfectly got a parcel with Illusion of Safety/Holeist LP, AMK/GUM 7", Peter Duimelinks 7" with Vital zine (picked this mostly for the zine) and Chop Shop "Tension-Discharge" so that'll be my playlist for today. Comments (maybe) to follow.

After trying to educate myself about crust/d-beat/whatever by listening to Framtid, Nightmare, Skitkids and Pisschrist I put on

The Hafler Trio - How to reform mankind cd (reissue on Korm Plastics)

Like most of McKenzie's output, this one is very good. I can listen to stuff like this all day every day and not really get bored. But at the same time it's something that I cannot get supremely EXCITED about, for some reason. Like there would be some small but crucial part missing from the equation. I just cannot put my finger on what it could be. The same thing on this disc. He pulls all the right moves, manipulates the simple sound material perfectly. Maybe it's just some small trace of human touch that I'm missing here. It's all so bafflling, so alien that at some point it becomes too much to handle. Like the texts he includes with the albums - total whathefuck, über-dada. I'm sure it's full of humour but somehow I cannot get a proper grasp on the joke.
Maybe it's a problem with me and at some point all the pieces will fall in their places and AHA! I will get it completely. Until then I will just keep on buying and listening to this stuff...
ps. I just checked his revised web-site (www.simplysuperior.org (http://www.simplysuperior.org)). Amazing.

Irm - Order4 CD (Cold Meat Industry, 2010?)

Listening to a copy of this upcoming album. Continues in the vein of our 12" of Segerhuva but adds a deeper experimental, static edge. Sudden changes in atmosphere and intensity. Even if the material is far from "commercial" I hope this can be some kind of break-through for them - would be interesting to hear these tracks in a live-situation.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: heretogo on December 30, 2009, 07:46:54 PM
Listening to some recent purchases for the past couple of days

Macronympha: Pittsburh, Pennsylvania cd
Macronympha: Baroque cd
PBK / Hands To / AMK: System-Music-End cd
The Haters: In The Shade of Fire cd
The Rita: The Voyage of the Decima MAS cd
Bizarre Uproar / Bastard Noise: split cd
Haare: Aquarian Darkness 7"
Jason Crumer: A Personal Hell 7"
Chop Shop: Discrete Emissions 7"

Some very good discs there. The Haare 7" being pretty much the only real disappointment, maybe I should spin it a couple more times to figure out if there's anything in there. The Macro's are amazing and the same goes for the Haters cd (total merging of concept and sound!). The PBK / Hands To / AMK Pure-cd was recommended by Mikko and it's superb. A very diverse collection of tracks that still fit together very well, doesn't feel like a compilation or split release at all. The new Rita disc requires more listening but seems there is a lot of potential there...


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on December 30, 2009, 09:57:22 PM
I have had 1 copy of that PBK/Hands To/AMK for years. Literally fucking years. And nobody showed slightest interest on it. I think it is great cd. And was it mere 7 euro? It's gone now. But I think just because of stubborn appreciation & support for certain bands, I'll restock it even if it means carrying dead stock for next 2-5 years...

Haare 7" was told to be fucked in pressing. Not sure how much. Ilkka said it because very lo-fi and the metal clangs and stuff like that are very soft and distant sounding. But hard to say, when not knowing how master CDR sounded like. I always find it amusing when people who release 7"s complain about sound. Having unrealistic expectations of type of length & frequencies & type of sound you can put on 7" cut by standard music business people.
In other hand, you see stuff like Ramleh VOD box 7" with 10 mins music on each side with amazing sound.

Nevertheless, I liked that Haare. Not his best moments, but guaranteed lo-fi drone job.

AMK/GUM "Assemblage 2"
Hanatarash "Total Retardation"

Merzbow/MSBR split
Ground Zero "Revolutionary Pekinese Opera Ver.1.50"

Title: Re: PLAYLIST

Listened again to the Haare 7". This time at 45 rpm, sounds much better! I guess this is the correct speed, even if it's not indicated anywhere. The A side is still a bit disappointing, should be longer to let it develop. B-side suits 7" format better, pretty good. Not Ilkka's finest moment as a whole, I would say. Still better than that shitty tape from a while ago which was recorded at so low levels it was ridiculous (and the B-side of my copy had just some mains hum on it, nothing else, hah)!


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on December 31, 2009, 07:54:23 PM
You're talking of that Black Arts label release? I didn't even want it, since I know the typical sound levels of the label. He mentioned that his tape deck died in middle of dubbing those tapes..... no shit?


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: heretogo on December 31, 2009, 08:37:23 PM
Yeah, that one. At first I thought the B-side was intentionally left "blank" but Ilkka told me that wasn't the case. Didn't bother asking for another copy since I wasn't even going to listen to the A-side ever again because of the stupid ass dubbing issues...

Been on a Contrastate bender. Such a beautiful band. I'm starting to like even the ones I didn't care for when they were released like Goodbye Great Nation. A collaboration with Tiger Lillies which I also listen to a lot the last two days. Weird band I never can decided if they are the greatest band on earth or a bunch of idiots that deserve a good beating. At the moment they are the greatest.
What I like about Contrastate is their ability to challenge what Contrastate record should sound like and still there is a distinct feel to every record I have with them. Great band!


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: heretogo on January 03, 2010, 11:04:53 AM
I was able to fix my trusty Nakamichi 582 tape deck. So it's time to play some tapes

Emeralds - s/t  CS (Hanson)

Suprisingly dark stuff compared to the other Emeralds albums I've heard (Solar Bridge and What Happened). Cosmische kraut has been partly exchanged for dark, brooding industrial. Even some sinister high tempo beats somewhere along the line. But it's still hallucinatory as hell, maybe just a bit of a bad trip this time around. I'm very happy to see that these guys are not stuck in a formula. One of the most interesting American groups around. I have to admit that during their set at No Fun Sweden I fell asleep for a short moment or two, and I STILL thought it was an excellent performance, hah! The same happened to me once during a Nurse With Wound concert... The only problem with this tape is the strange channel balance, it's all the time panned heavily to one side. Could be intentional I guess, but makes me wonder if it isn't just an issue with the dubbing...

Hmm.. what's next? Maybe some Bizarre Uproar...

Topias Tiheäsalo - Eyes Of A Dead Lamb cd
A very nice acoustic guitar improv disc from 2005. Sparse & delicate sounds with lots of silence between them. One of the most interesting improvisers on the Finnish "scene". And it's not all low-key & silent with Topias, the set he did last week here in Helsinki bordered on noise in some aspects. And as he used a dildo to assault his guitar maybe it can be called sex-noise... hah!

Taco Bells - Vadelma/Hawaii LP
Surprisingly good free jazz from this Finnish combo. Very organic sound, there's something unique about them. Not quite sure what it is though, must investigate a bit further.

The New Blockaders - Simphonie In O Minor LP
Yeah, the reissue on Harbinger. Nice handmade covers. I like the HISS. Plus there's some vinyl crackle, some hum and other low level artifacts. I enjoy it as a fetish. I'm not into porn or other such forms of "deviance" - this is my thing.

Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on January 12, 2010, 10:52:40 PM
Been on 7" frenzy for some days. Some of experimental ones been commented here on board, now during couple days been going through several metal releases (incl. Order from chaos, necros christos, Rotting Christ, Waffenweihe, Panzerfaust, etc) and skinhead 7"s. Some time ago managed to score "Voice of Britain" and "WP" original 7" slabs, and somehow they sound better than on LP (or CD). With little snap crackle and pop, one still appreciates more timeless klassiks like Smash IRA, Sick Society etc. Too bad genre is such a digitalized nowadays, very few doing vinyl anymore. Especially not with this kind of tasty hand made punk artwork.

Bizarre Uproar mother 3, continues series with perhaps more raw noise approach.
Bereft CDR. USA PE what has been going for long time, but remains rather unknown. Nowadays assisted by mr. Vomit Arsonist, Bereft has been getting better and better. Recent split with Sewer Goddess suggested that this band should proceed little big higher than CDR releases in future?

A few of us made a small road-trip to Lahti from Helsinki (about 100 kms). The day was happily spent browsing through records in Mikko's store + some other local second-hand shops. Now it's time to enjoy some of the acquisitions...

Dachau Gramophon - Ton Des Todes cs
Quite nice rumbling turntable action. Properly decaying sound quality with not many high frequencies. Keeps on rolling smoothly, clearly some thought has been used for this. Maybe a bit too long for what it is, but a nice tape to put on and play in the background.

v/a -Dokument #1 (Futurist & DADA music) cs
Very pleasing historic document. Especially the Marinetti tracks are very satisfying. The downside is that all this stuff is quite easily available on a similarly themed Sub Rosa compilation. The Dokument #5 - The Myth is in Art tape on Private Edition is more "valuable" since the material is more obscure (and still very very good). Anyway, mad props go out to Sweden for the guy behind these nice tapes.

Merzbow - 1930 cd
Ahh, it's good.

Title: Re: PLAYLIST

Got home from work. First up is Hurriganes - Live in Stockholm 1977 cd. Finns and some Swedes will know what this is about...

Next is Raionbashi / Joke Lanz / Michael Barthel - 7 3" cd-r. This is a pretty funny one. Very short, just under 6 minutes altogether. Effected shouts, groans, growls, ominous pumping bass thumps, triangles. Just as it starts to get going it's over. Feel's thoroughly composed, very effective use of the few available minutes. In principle I hate these small 3" cds but this one has something special going for it.

And then Jason Crumer - A Personal Hell 7". Have to give this a few more listens before making a judgement. Sounds good but maybe not as distinctive as I might have expected. The cd-r that accompanied this 7" seemed more promising in that sense. Not convinced by the cover, too ... something.

But I have to say, neither Crumer or R/JL/MB have the visceral impact of Hurriganes!

TABU was a great live band. The Beating just went on... Verboten did some good stuff but when he recorded his side for the split with Lille Roger just cleaned up his act. The tape version of the same material was better when he sang the lyrics to Dina Ormar. Story about a guy cutting up a girl and taken out her "snakes" and playing with them. VM who was Verboten and one half of TABU today runs a rather famous publishing house in Sweden releasing books by Dennis Cooper and Lemmy.

Those two tapes are from the mid-eighties... And if you like that kind of stuff you should check out En Halv Kokt i Folie. Weird cut-ups which are more fun if know Swedish but weirder if you don't... stay away from the CD on CMI though.
Although Konduktör have released a few releases in mid 2000 they were mainly active between during the eighties. Börft pretty much started when Konduktör folded.

I hope they do Rippikoulu 1st demo. It crushes 2nd demo anytime. No death-doom, but very nice "regular" death metal. Not long ago listened the demo. Ordered it from band members when it came, and did interview to my zine back then...

I've been pretty much 7" frenzy now. Basically grabbed all my metal related 7"s I have never listened, and been systematically going through them. Not many anymore, then doing same with noise & related. That should be like 50 slabs to spin. Some have been listened, but placed again "to be listened again soon" pile where been collecting dust for couple years.

SLOGUN "Kill to forget" LP

Haven't listened to this one in ages and it's much better than I remember. Fascinating to hear how much of this actually sounds like modern day noise/PE from the US - both vocally and musicwise with it's thick layering and quite organic, rumbling soundscapes.

Today's playlist included amongst others:

Lou Reed - Metal Machine Music cd
Got this last week after years of planning to do so. Thought it would be just a historical curiosity, not really a one to listen to. Instead it's a pretty great album. Not harsh or violent at all, more of a psychedelic mass of feedback. Almost drone-like, drifting in and out of bliss and vision. Not dated at all, I could easily imagine something like this coming from the more psych-drone-oriented side of the noise scene of today. Except it's better than most of that stuff...

Kevin Drumm - Untitled single-sided 12"
On Dilemma Records. 95% of the time I really don't get the point of single-sided LPs... and that applies to this one also. Why bother unless you're going to put some etches or something on the blank side? Fortunately the sounds are very very good. First track is harsher with nice start & stop pause action. Second one is like a million insects buzzing inside your head. Drumm rarely disappoints.

Henri Chopin / Pan Sonic / Achim Wollscheid - Composition (some character!) cd
2/3 of the Chopin tracks are guaranteed pleasures, the first one a more of a curiosity. Pan Sonic seems mediocre here, not impressive in any way. I remember a live show of theirs from years ago, where I literally felt my insides being massaged by the overwhelming mass of sound. It fuckin' slayed, if you know what I mean... Wollscheid is pretty digital and annoying. But in a good way! I like it when somebody can annoy me like this.

Violent Onsen Geisha - The Midnight Gambler cd
Some good parts but WAY too long. Condense this into 30 min. and then we'll talk, ok?


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on January 30, 2010, 10:27:36 PM
Lou Reed - Metal Machine Music cd

I remember thinking that this must be pretty "rare" to get even on CD and I think I was so amazed to find it somewhere 2nd hand CD. Well, it seems like album has always been in-print, and available for pretty good midprice... Regularly priced even in my own mailorder (which probably means midprice in regular shop standards). I think it's good album, but be it done by someone else maybe not that famous? Related to this, I remember when I picked up Laurie Anderson original tape from very early 80's from one Japanese shop for like 1€. It might have been Lasse Marhaug who happened to be there who asked did I know who she was, and that tape could be pretty rare. I had no idea who mrs. Anderson was... and well, apart from UBUWEB samples, can't say I would have checked much else of her works.  Totally zero interest to see Reed & Anderson play live in Helsinki last year. Seemed like bitter jaded old man goofing around with electronics.

Lou Reed is one of those artists I heard a lot during my chilhood thanks to my older brother. About three years ago I decided to buy a couple of albums again (Berlin and Transformer) since I'd totally lost touch with him from my teens and onwards. So with a certain sadness I admitted that Lou Reed is a pretentious bore. When I was in Mikko's shop last year I gave Lou one last chance when buying the mythical Metal Machine Music and my reaction was the same. A load of boring old shit. Fuck this guy.

Definitely the most overrated ex member of VU. I recommend everyone to go for Nico instead.

Very nice compilation, a lot variety and still full of quality. But ah, unfortunately there is a technical problem here. The channel balance leans heavily towards one channel... very annoying to listen in proper "audiophile position" between the speakers (or on headphones, I guess). Yeah, I do have a channel balance adjustment on my amp, but still... I wonder if the problem was with the master or if it's due to the duplication process (this seems to be professionally made).

BizarreSSMania - What's Your Pleasure, Sir LP
First impression: good but not as good as I expected. Hard to say yet, feels like there might be more to it on further listenings. Solid stuff but didn't make me all giddy, not yet at least.

Urauschwitz - Zirkuszerfall cd
Parts of this are superb. Like phantom nostalgia of times that never were. Other parts are just plain boring. Very intricate and confusing packaging / cover art, in this regard it's one of the best I've seen in a while. A project to keep an eye/ear on, I think.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: alpharmania on February 04, 2010, 11:28:17 PM
Hated Perversions:
Waited a while until picking this up, but it was sure worth it... I think the Institute of Paraphilia Studies really did succeed in gathering the most perverted names in noise & power electronics field. Inside the heavy leatherbook-styled packaging a booklet is hidden. Exceptionally well-researched and carefully compiled from both own material as well as other material that makes any retro-pervert go insane! I recognize some of the swedish / danish magazines mentioned inside...
One can tell that there is people with fanatic dedication to their perversions. Highlights are Sick Seed (two really strong tracks), Nicole 12, BU, Grunt and Taint (dedicating his work to Male Rape Group - genius!). The rest was good but a bit overshadowed by the power of above mentioned....
Hated Perversions prove that this subject isn't over-and-done-with as many claim. Here it is taken to a whole new level. I welcome this and pray for more products from IOPS in the future!

Vehm - Time of Violence:
Debut tape that took a while before it came out... Recommended for all those into sounds of Grey Wolves in Catholic Priests / Punishment era. Hopefully we won't have to wait another 10 years for next release?

Dusa - tape on Utmarken:

Reminds a bit of his "Svenska bebådare" cassette that came out last year. Not in any way noise-related, but very strange and original experimental soundwork. Kjell Böglund cover. Classy handmade covers. Maybe bit too short, otherwise an excellent tape!

Enhänta Bödlar: Tomma tonhuvud
Oh no... Enhänta Bögar (as Leif of RJF put it) are back with a tape on Börft. This is the part of Swedish "industrial" that I can't really handle... Crazy/funny titles like Åka Sopbil and Spräckt fläkt. I pressed stop button after two tracks.

Pestdemon: Vexations (Strömkarlen) + The Natural Destroyer (Utmarken):

Two tapes of well-performed death industrial / power electronics. Uprising act in Swedish scene. Both tapes are really good.

Yesterday:

BizarreSSMania "What's Your Pleasure, Sir?" LP
Great, varied sound. More laid-back than I had anticipated, but that suits me just fine. The sound is as dirty as you could imagine, and incredibly powerful.

Kristian Olsson "Att Vara Där Jag Var Innan Jag Var Jag" LP
A lot more laid-back and subtle than Alfarmania. This has a very eerie, otherworldly atmosphere, compared to Alfarmania's industrial filth. Some parts remind me a bit of Niellerade Fallibilisthorstar. I love the sounds of creaking and banging metal, and the hints of "real" instruments buried deep here and there in the sludge of feedback.

Pestdemon "The Natural Destroyer" tape
Fourth tape so far from this Swedish act. And the quality does not drop a single bit. Powerful death industrial in its very noisiest form. Edition of 50, so get it while you can.

I guess the factory has one of duplication decks with this error. I know that 1 person before this complained about same thing. When I did check with all my copies and publisher listened plenty of his, other defected copies couldn't be found. I wonder how many decks they have running? 10? 20? 30? So I guess it is 1 out of XX copies that has problem in balance of channels. I'm sure label will replace you with new copy if you ask nicely. This probably affects everybody using tapeline.



Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: ConcreteMascara on February 05, 2010, 06:34:57 PM
One way I compensate for this problem when it happens is I record the tapes to a digital format, but in mono. Then I do any extra balancing after it's recorded. While MP3s never sound as good as the physical tape it's better than having everything in one channel.

Sure, will send you an e-mail and we'll get it sorted. Anyway, idea was not to slag the label, sorry if it came across like that.

About the comp, I was especially impressed by the Pain Nail contribution + the Manic/Depression track. And nice touch with the Funeral Mongoloids track ending side A, works beautifully.

TESENDALO "Wendezeit" LP (Korm Plastics)
TESENDALO "Natur Naht" LP (Noise Museum)
TESENDALO "Laura" LP (Staubgold)
TESENDALO "Bandwurm" MLP (Molar Records)

German ambient from the 90's. Don't think the guy - Peter Schuster - did get that much attention outside mainland Europe perhaps? The earlier LPs ("Wendezeit" and "Natur Naht") are more darker, "industrial" ambient (maybe a bit due crappier equipment?) while the later ones are more clear and "lightweight" droning guitar ambiences. I like these a lot.

Was there Tesendalo 7" on Drone? Remember project being good. Never been HUGE ambient fan myself. At one point sold almost all what I could file as "dark ambient" away. Slightly regret doing so.
Katastrofialue! It's kind of small world, when you think of it. Singer of the band is on this board too...

Been educating myself with some neofolk/neoclassical/world serpent scene type of bands.  Sol Invinctus, The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath The Could, Decadence (cheap greek stuff with nice female voice!), and so on.. Listening also upcoming Industrial Recollections CD's.

Of The Wand And The Moon is probably my favorite neofolk band/project/whatever and I can only fully listen to and submerge in the records during winter rains and while drinking gin, vodka or something like that. Then, listening to OTWATM makes me feel utterly miserable, and for some reason I really enjoy it.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: Ritual on February 07, 2010, 01:42:32 PM
Trepaneringsritualen "Septentrional" tape (Hanson)
Very interesting industrial with a ritualistic touch. Eerie and otherworldly.

Ryan Bloomer "In response to a threat" tape (Harsh Head Rituals)
Fast-paced harsh noise. Quite clear in sound with lot of high frequency noise. Great!

Jarl "Vertigo emission" CD (Autarkeia)
The latest Jarl album. Probably my favourite so far, as well. A more varied sound than previously. Also, slightly harsher and more grating.

Dietermüh/MNEM "Atomyriades" CD (Cipher)
I was a bit disappointed at this when I got it and thought both acts were much better on their own. But it has grown each time I've listened to it, and now I think it is really good. Maybe not as engaging as the two acts normally are, but a very good album to unwind to.

Swans "White light from the mouth of infinity" 2LP (Young God)
My favourite Swans album, period.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds "Your funeral ... my trial" CD (Mute)
Great album! There are no low points on it, and it includes one of my favourite Cave songs... the nightmarish circus waltz of The Carny.

Amebix and Mistreat = solid combination

is it new 7" from GL? I have two 12" + several live tapes with Gerechtigkeits liga... tapes are released on their own label (Zyklus?). much better than studio vinyls (where it often gets too "funky" for my taste).


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: Steve on February 08, 2010, 12:43:16 AM
The 7" seems to be a split with a project called Gehirn.Implosion of which I know nothing about. It is released by Verstand and is limited to 199 copies. The GL track is called "Wendehorn" and is the sound of an awakening beast, a beautifully constructed piece of modern industrial music. The G.I track is OK. There are sections that sound like lock grooves - but it is OK. White vinyl with an insert. Worth it.
It is better than the Ironflame 7""! I have the Zyklus 12"EP "The Games Must Go On" + the LP on Thermidor. I regard this release as essential Gerechtigkeits Liga.

Like Mikko said in the review thread... this has a quite electric and "clean" sound. I've been listening to so much crude stuff lately, that this felt a bit out of place at first. But, as the tape went on I got into the sound and discovered its qualities. It's quite original stuff... I'm going to give it another spin tomorrow.

Nicole 12 - Substitute cd

One of my favourites, fresh power electronics. Not as good as Braces 7" and Lolita Love/Playground cd which, I believe, benefit from shorter format & more compact songs.

Martin Bladh - Umbilical Cords cd

Slow and heavy, yet beautiful. Great record to listen to with a cup of coffee.

Streicher - Legion St. George lp
Streicher - War Without End cd


Of these two I prefer the cd, really epic stuff. The noise delivered is IMO akin to those on the new Grunt cd, should listen it next. Which one of the reissued cds is closest to War Without End?


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on February 12, 2010, 09:16:48 PM
War Without End actually IS pretty much the same stuff. That CD is made out of selected pieces of old Streicher works, but heavily re-mastered/edited and given new titles without the skinhead/wp references. And no vocals. But Streicher is known for recycling elements & sounds anyways, so I think it suits very much purpose. Most of Streicher releases have been in first place released in 2 versions. Where original art/titles have been changed to fit to new vision of band. This happened to Annihilism, Voltage, Chemisorb, etc. which later were known with different names.
I think the newest, the 5th part is excellent choise. It has c. 70 minutes of material, and due being several releases/compilations on one disc, it means there are pretty compact songs.

Dead Body Love "Nechronology" 8-tape box (Second Sleep)
I have gotten through the first four tapes of this set now, and I can safely say it is quite a magnificent collection of material. Definitely recommended!

Lasse Marhaug "Tapes 1990-1999" 4-cd box (Pica Disk)
The Industrial Recollections release of the Egoproblem material made me revisit this collection of early LM recordings. And damn, it's good!

Burial Hex "Ghost Trio No. 1" tape (Young Girls Records)
This single sided tape contains a 22 minutes long piece of acoustic piano, metal abuse and shortwave radio noise. It is a quite asonishing piece of music, actually. The main part of the piece is haunting piano music, quite lo-fi sound, with some subtle metal abuse going on in the background. The noise level increases and the piano becomes less melodic as the piece nears the end. Finally, the piano disappears completely and the rest of the track is just pure noise.

Charlemagne Palestine - Sound 1 single-sided LP (Alga Marghen)
So simple. A few oscillators fighting against each other, creating a slowly beating drone tapestry. Not really static but very slowly moving. It's not dreamy or beautiful in the standard "drone way", the attraction is maybe more intellectual here. Certainly not the best ever by mr. Palestine but I'm a big fan, so... Still, the stupid 1-sided LP format annoys me to no end.

Borbetomagus & Shaking Ray Levis - Coelacanth 10" (Agaric)
I have no idea who/what is/are Shaking Ray Levis. But this certainly doesn't sound like the Borbetomagus I'm used to. Much more "relaxed", not the force of nature they usually are. This is more playful, more experimental if you like. Along the way it acquires some almost oriental flavours, snake charmer type of shit. Side B is fiercer stuff but still in a "wackier" format than is the norm for Borbetomagus. Very nice actually, demented virtuoso free music.

On my daily bus ride to/from work I've been on a total Grateful Dead & related -binge. I've even grown to enjoy the new Furthur-stuff. Some of the songs are painfully trite on the surface but when they get jammin'... man it's great. The only problem is that the bus ride only takes about 25 minutes... too short for the Dead!

BJ NILSEN "Fade to white" CD [Touch] 2005

Played this as a reminder to what happened before the more recent BJ Nilsen LP "The short night" which I haven't spun yet. This one haven't really stood the test of time (ok, it's only been 4-5 years...) but my memory of it was better. There are some good droning moments but parts of it feels kind of flat and uninspired to me, although you have to be in the right mood to really appreciate Bennys work. For a more intricate (and better) listen try his work as Hazard instead, in particular the "North" CD and "Wood/Field/Bridge" CD+LP (both on Touch).

Biota / Mnemonists - Musique Actuelle 1990 cd
I put this on inspired by the Anomalous Records -thread. Not the best Biota / Mnnemonists stuff ever but still highly enjoyable. It's amazing that they can create this strange mass of sound with basically just acoustic instruments. One of the most distinctive musical groups ever and also one most the most "difficult". I think I need to revisit more of this stuff...

The Dead C - Trapdoor Fucking Exit cd
Year after year, this always sounds great! After listening to this or Harsh 70's Reality (the only other Dead C record I have) I always regret not getting more of their releases. Perfect fusion of punk, noise and kraut.

BOCKSHOLM cd on autarkeia
If you ask me, I don't have any special high interest in most of projects where these 2 famous guys are involved. I do appreciate those for what they are, but most of the time I don't see them THAT special. But this collaboration project is simply gold. It is kind of prototype industrial noise, with looped metal junks, some guitar drones, clashing scrap, percussive elements. Live show perhaps more to-the-point and noisier than studio works? Some yelling vocals too. Good playingtime, digipak.. recommended.

ORGANOMEHANIZM "Bred Cosmosa" cdr
Well, I have kept saying over and over again how I tend to dislike CDR, but couldn't refuse to spin these Russian releases. This project someone may know for old Ultra label release, and his works with Veprisuicida. This CDR has lots of tracks, it starts almost like playing new era Whitehouse from walkman and doing some raw noises on top. But it does progress into more. Radio noises, russian speeches, cracles, hiss, broken sounds. It's is extremely lo-fi and unpleasant in standards of "music". It's simplicity and hand made "unedited" approach demands certain amount of will to go the difficult route, but in the end I say this material simply pisses over a lot of things what PE/industrial scene offers in the "west". I think there is need for someone to start issuing some of these hidden Russian jewels on CD format...

Been listening both, 2xLP and the CD version, and one can say that clearly the best thing what has come from norway since glory days. There is only one crappy song on this album, otherwise I'd rate it very highly even in such impressive discography. Some complained vocals are different, but they were already different before. And band never did two similar albums. This is amazingly simple, and not afraid of bringing new style of riffs/melodies yet remain very much rooted in sound what there always was. One can also give credit that unlike many BM bands, design actually has gotten better. Lack of lengthy keyboard tracks is good. There are still very minimalistic tracks, which are something that many bands seem to not be able to do. When almost nothing happens, you finally get into basic elements of what is good and bad in (black)metal. The best bands have courage to just do this, and not try to to impress you with something more complex or supposedly revolutionary.

SKIN CRIME s/t LP (Hospital Productions / Force Of Nature)
Patrick at Self Abuse managed to find a copy for me after searching a while. I'm not really aware of either Skin Crime or the Black Dahlia murders but I think this work is not really representative of Patrick's ordinary work as Skin Crime? However, this is a very good release. Two long tracks which starts with slow echoing metal screeches to build in tension and atmosphere. There is quite little interference of electronic manipulation I guess. Neither side reaches pure noise territory (but b-side has more background monotonous loop sounds) - think more spooky and intense industrial without rhythmic structures. Damn good!

BAND OF PAIN "Argento" LP (Dirter Promotions)
For some reason I never got into hearing Band Of Pain until a few years back when Fin De Siecle Media released a compilation double CD. Mostly I thought is was pretty generic dark ambient with samples etc. but when seeing this LP for cheap I decided to try. Seems to be one of their first works, released in 1994? First side is dark synth "tone" through it all with samples and additional sounds, b-side three quite different tracks made with guitar, voice and even saxophone on last one. Not exactly ambient but more things happening but still pretty dark and cold feel overall, only last track breaks the atmosphere a bit. For repeated listenings.

About these two, I think Skin Crime is indeed great release. I have a vague recollection that there was some release with also similar less distorted aproach? Can't really remember which one. Also CD on Armed & Loaded - very good. Releases like Whorebutcher tape/cdr are masterworks in fierce violent noise.  I remember labels who put out the LP, were talking about re-issue already when it came out, since it sold out within... weeks? or at least couple months. And you'd hope highlights of some band to stay available little longer. But knowing how little SC has interest for re-issues, probably won't happen.

Band of Pain, I first heard on 7", which indeed has sax and all that. I lumped it immediately more into direction of bands like Splintered, Husk and whatever (even if those are VERY different), that the "cold spring dark ambient" what the later cd was. Not bad, though.

Worship Black Twilight CD-r (Crepusculo Negro)
Good compilation of usbm, especially the Ashdautas and Arizmenda tracks stands out. Last unnamed project is great as well.

Pestdemon - Doppelgänger Tape (Unrest)
Fifth (right?) tape from Pestdemon and the best output so far. As many has mentioned, the B-side stands out the most, with piano samples and strange vocals. One of the most promising "new" Swedish acts i would say.

Yellow Swans - Going Places LP (Type)
Last YS release and the best stuff they ever did. Epic material, sounds like an whole orcherstra blowing big holes in the sky. I really like how they incorporate haunting melodies in the mix, a direction which was noticeable on that last Load album as well but here fully executed. Powerful.

Sewer Goddess "with dirt you are one" CD on Black Plague
pretty good indeed. Was this a bit older recording what came out? No recording dates in cover. I like the kind of muddy and suffacting feeling that many tracks have, despite obvious sounds of modern "cheap" digital effects with amp modelling things etc. what make those effects very different than individual pedals. There are also plenty of subtle melodies played on keyboards and there are also sometimes used instruments like bass to deliver slow sludgy "riffs". Makes me think of sunn o))) influences perhaps? It is like Death Industrial done today. There is the instrument use and there is the distorted melody. But luckily their overall atmosphere is most of all dark in the raw way. Its everything else but clear & sharp, which is big advantage. You can always refer some classic names of death industrial, but good thing is SG is that they aren't into 1:1 copy, but there is some actual substance of their own and they also manage to create album with 9 tracks that aren't too alike.

Mania - Insidious And Alone (Freak Animal) tape
All the Mania material I've heard has been superb. This one takes a slightly different approach, more concise and fierce. I understood from Mikko that this is actually older stuff, sounds a bit more PE'ish than the other Mania releases. I'm not familiar at all with Taint but maybe this is from a transitional period? Be that as it may, I'm enjoying this a lot. Dubbing is very much "in-the-red" but it doesn't detract from the sounds in this case.

Kristian Olsson - Att vara där jag var innan jag var jag (Nattmaran) LP
This was described as industrial filth but that's not really how I hear it. A nice balance between almost academic soundscape (well, of the lo-fi and dirty sort), harmony and metal banging. Very atmospheric, thoroughly composed (sounds that way anyway...) and good, I will be listening this for many days to come.

Smell & Quim - The Christmas Album (Industrial Recollections) cd
I've been totally unfamiliar with these guys until now. Big mistake, it seems... Delicious racket they make! Amazingly coherent for what it is.

ULTRA "Lifestyle" CD (The Ajna Offensive)

Warm-up for the vinyl re-issue of "Roman Holiday" on the resurrected Dom America label. When it comes to Ultra it often seems like comments are always about the LPs - haven't heard much about either "Lifestyle" or "Stain" CDs. Could it be they always were more popular with people having their larger part history in the 80's? Anyway, seems strange it's been 10 years already since the release. This one is more about soundscaping, and the first track is stretched out guitar space outs with brooding industrial undertones. Further on the sounds evolves to more "traditional" Ultra. What i've always admired with Ultra is their sense of doing both darker and gloomier tracks and their more experimental side with cut-ups and a lot of samples. It lacks some of the mock-PE of earlier releases, just a short noisy outburst without vocals at the end of the disc. Well, there is a short track with ONLY vocals in German (in that hot, sexy style, sounds like he's taking a shit!) which could actually be considered power electronics but otherwise this CD is pretty subtle but nevertheless great.

Sacher-Pelz "L. E. Cherz Pas" CD-R (TIBProd.)
I have no idea if this is old, unreleased material or newly recorded material, but it sounds old. Minimal ambient pieces with a primitive industrial touch. Not mind-blowing, but pretty good. A very low price makes this good value for money, despite being a CD-R.

Konstruktivits "N.K.V.D. Compilation" CD-R (Klanggallerie)
Collection of tracks by Konstruktivits and the related N.K.V.D. Really good industrial-tinged abstract ambient pieces. Too bad it is not put on proper CD. If I remember correctly it was pretty expensive too.

Heavy and devastating! I like the "short" tracks, keeping everything focused. This release have everything I like... Crushing bass rumbling, shrieking feedback, metal junk abuse, intense vocals. And it's done with integrity and personality. Highly recommended!

Pogrom "Liberal Cunt" tape (Filth & Violence)
Filth and violence! That sums this tape up. Crude, filthy, misogynist PE with fierce, hateful vocals.

I brought three Ultra CDs with me in the car today after reading Loves post.... after I heard Ultra for the first time I always hunt down whatever I can lay my hands on with them. few groups manage to do such depraved and sleazy music in such perfect way, merging experimental / avantgarde and power electronics...

Roman Holiday - I even had to get an extra copy of this one after playing first one to death. good to hear it finally gets released on format worthy the music. I hope some day they re-issue Live 1986 tape on Dom...
Lifestyle - excellent illustrations and packaging. as bogskagg put it more experimental, still charged with unpleasant vibrations...
Stain - difficult listening I must say... when I first heard this I got disappointed but after some listens it grows like shit in the slaves mouth. more in text/sound tradition but way too explicit content to fall into art category. full of surprises but nothing I'd recommend to new listeners.

Wertham - Sleaze tape: together with tesco cd best works I heard from Depla. very informative booklet and as always from EST extraordinary packaging....

Ex.Order "law of heresy" CD... new master with the missing track here. 10 track in total. Possibly their finest release with nice raw edge to many of tracks, like wow of tapes, analogue fuzzy sounds etc. Heavily loop oriented (which works for me!), but kind of handmade feeling with a lot of effects etc. Will be sent to pressing on monday..

Pogrom "liberal cunt" tape. Indeed, just as described couple messages above. It's brutal. Often based on simple elements of bassy and heavy synthnoise(?) and then fierce feedback/noise and testosterone grunting male vocals. You can easily tell this is some of the good newcomers to the scene. All he got to do, is to find some personality & own elements into material. For lovers of violent PE, its pretty much guaranteed satisfying purchase.

SCREWTAPE - "Day Of Hell" (cass., Solar Anus)


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on March 14, 2010, 11:43:49 AM
I was pretty impressed by some of the Screwtape stuff. In every other way than the poor presentation of inkjet print covers etc. But music was very good in some CDR's even. Reminding little of noisier days of CCCC. Brutal and harsh, but with some nice "psychedelic" texture in it.

Got to say about Pogrom that forgot to mention that b-side is different. It's like concept work of human moaning & throatfucking malformed into "bubbling" sonic wall with high pitched feedback sounds apprearing once in a while. Which is pretty nice for F&V, like Snuff tape, to have kind of theme/concept audioart on one side and songs on other.

This morning TILE 7" with raw and noisy sludgy noiserock. Kind of slow.. but not really. Kind of groovy way fast, but.. not really. 45rpm 7" just perfect for the two tracks. Gave it spin 4 times on a-side immediately. Material is kind of good reminder for folks of today that if you're doing feedback drenched guitars and sludgy doomish / rocking material you can actually compress your ideas in 3-4 minutes instead of boring the hell out with 20 minute funeral processions with barely 1 riff worth to remember.
Another Kult of Nihilow label release LOINEN tape. Their first release after Petu's suicide. No guitar anymore, but just basses. Loinen is totally unique. It sounds nasty, unpolished and just plain uncontrolled energy. Simple bass riffs, sludgy tempos what occasionally burst into faster hardcore. Home made recording style, lyrics on level of absurdity. A-side is more doomy, B-side is even better. Lyrics is something one can just wonder. "Sementtimylly! Mun ainoa rakkaus! Anna pillua huora!!!". Kind of love story of man with the cementmixer, where the choise of words is pretty much... well, 5-10 words for about 15 minutes. I may be wrong, but my association immediately was like Death Trip or/and Terveet Kädet gone noisy into trend-free sludgecore. While you'd think this is about as uncommercial and nasty as things can get in the genre, label sold all 100 tapes within week or so?? Lucky hunting...

Post by: BARRIKAD on March 16, 2010, 09:28:18 PM
I have had a Nil By Mouth night and thought to share some thoughts on a label worth checking out. Gone through some new and some old:

Graniopagus: Lithuanian Acceptance - C10
Stylish cassette from Nil By Mouth with the Lithuanian flag colors wrapped in thin strips of tape around the cover. Public celebration of Lithuania, distorted voice on top of the national anthem, a little percussion, C10 - not a lot of candy here, unfortunately. I am most surprised that the lyrics and covers are available in English and not in Lithuanian - that would have been something!

An innocent young throat-cutter: Gliocchi Dentro - C30
Dedicated to the horror filmdirector Bruno Mattei, Remirez and Renzoni offers noise from Texas. Nice and brutal cover, I often find "dead bodies"-layout boring but this one works great to this yellow cassette. Although yellow plastic around so a bit pain for the collector in you to break its wrapping. Eyes Without Face part 1 and part 2 does not feel so innoavtivt as track titles. Part 1 starts quickly and then move into a more middle frequencies, bubbling, almost hypnotic like good ambient. Part 2 contains the film samples and then goes to a dark crackle. A primitive sense that Lille Roger, Z'wai Leumi Irgun etc. does better, this sounds somewhat amateurish. Will give it some more playtime.

Fear Constructor: Philosophy of a conflict - C60
Russian power electronics project, focusing on human history by conflict. Feels analog, synths through pedals, throbbing, chanting voice. One of my favourit releases from this label, well-done. Can unfortunately not say I have an eye on this country's noise project at large, unfortunately. Nice edition, as usual, from NBM! Green plastic bag, 9 gray postcards and spray-painted tape.

Mourmansk 150:Mourmansk 150: La guerre, l'Anarchie et le chaos - CD
Glad to get the booklet with lyrics, been nice to get an explanation also of the French texts and in more detail what is behind some of them ... The layout feels a bit standard now that we are spoiled by previous NBM-editions but looks great. Music-wise, it is industrially and in some quarters PE, aggressive. Vary in quality between the songs, but often reaches a high level. Like especially his voice being in long hours and not the classic PE "short phrases with delay" etc.

POST SCRIPTVM "grey eminence" CD
TEsco 079
Hey, dammit! New Tesco release, which captured me with nice cover collage. 3 panel digipak with matte finish, with brownish/grey'ish collages. I thought release with this kind of cover can't be bad. And it wasn't. Most of it is very organic industrial. Bells or other "tonally ringing" percussion elements, some hi-tech editing perhaps, but most of all very tasty sounds. One of the tracks goes pretty close to modern day PE realms. With heavy flanger vocals and dense layers of loop sounds creating rhythmical piece. If you look at the Tesco catalogue, I would guess Contrastate is the closest reference?

And lets say about the same for:
VORTEX "Phanopoeia" CD
Tesco 074
It starts little bit something in "Deflagation of Hell" era Deutsch Nepal maybem but due as many as 10 tracks in this CD, it goes into many places. Sometimes it is the well produced dark ambient realms, occasionally perhaps more experimental & hand made sounding. Good sounds of metal junks and various other sources. Never noisy, but well made. With listens of little of old D. Nepal and some Zoat Aon or such first, one couldn't go wrong choosing Vortex! Cover explains the artistic movement Vorticism which was spawned in England 1912 till 1915. Connected to Cubism. How much music manages to capture Vorticism ideals, is yet to really decide, since many tracks have somewhat ritualistic & "occult" wibe, while some may turn into more surreal sound compositions. Nevertheless, I reall there has been some questions about where you find more well crafted and hmmm.. "dramatic" industrial sound nowadays, and these couple new Tesco releases actually are something I'd immediately recommend! Not spilling their beans in first few minutes, but actually compositions done with talent and good ear for aesthetics of doing good album!

It is...strange that Burzum would be in any charts in any country, but I say good for him. There's now a rumor circulating with a link to a bogus website that all the proceeds for the LP are going to the earthquake victims in Haiti. What's even more amusing is that people believe it.

It got a decent, although not raving, review in our biggest newspaper. The review was written by a knowledgable music journalist with a fairly open mind. I haven't read any other reviews in mainstream media here, so far. The album is distributed in Sweden by Bonnier, which is our largest media company. That would have been unthinkable in the nineties.

HELM - To an End, LP

Luke Younger from Birds of Delay releases the first LP with his solo project HELM. The A side with its looped coughs and wheezings managed to make me feel slightly nauseous. The B side is a long and very well made drone which grows Mariana Trench deep as it sneaks up on you. Not as unpleasant as the A side but then again not as mellow as the first encounter makes out either. If the A side is a mans dying moments the B side is the eternal after. The plunge into a deep beyond. This is very good!

Recommended!

Re: HELM - is the a-side reminiscent of recent Sewer Election work?

About rereleases - listened again recently the old LOTUS EATERS "Mind control for infants" CD from 2002 (?) which recently have been rereleased on vinyl. Other reason for rerelease than being members from other "famous" groups this material is far from excellent to my ears and could definitely have stayed only on CD. Mostly made up by guitar and bass, both acoustic and electric with effects. Maybe parts of it actually sounds like later day EARTH material without the drums. There are a few tracks that flow pretty well but most parts are silent and dull, without direction. Mini-LP on Ajna was much better, four tracks with limited track times maybe made it more interesting?


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: GEWALTMONOPOL on March 18, 2010, 10:24:38 PM
I doubt I've heard any recent Sewer Election at all so I can't say.

Regarding Lotus Eaters, the same can be said for the LP version of Ginnungagap's Remeindre album. It's nice if a good person like Andrew who runs AB made a bit of money, and I honestly wish him all the success in the world, but musically I'm unsure if this should even have made it onto a CD. As a tape for a promising new band yes but nothing more. Others may disagree.

good new dark ambient from Tesco. Add to items mentioned in my recent mails also THO-SO-AA "identity" CD (tesco 081). Dark, gloomy, heavy on bass, subtle melody of slow keyboard waves. Loops and physical sounds. Was listening to their 7" on Drone couple weeks ago, and it is great. Would be total BS to say 7" doesn't work for "ambient" pieces. That 7" is great. Few moments on this CD I wasn't thrilled about, but overall it's nice to see this kind of good, yet unpretentious dark ambient releases.

I'm going to see Altar Of Flies play tonight, so I thought I'd start the day by listening to this album. Great, organic noise. Not that harsh, but detailed and well thought out. The power lies in the structures and atmosphere.

Iron Fist Of The Sun "Behavioural Decline" cd (Cold Spring)
Nice album from this new-ish UK act. The approach to the sound is refreshingly different than most other current PE acts. The sound is minimal, clean and feels very electric. A track can be based on just one sound, basically. I also feel some sort of heritage from early UK PE acts here. Good stuff!

Will Over Matter/Bizarre Uproar split LP (Filth & Violence)
First thing I've heard by Will Over Matter. I really liked the first of the two tracks by this act. The slow drum beat combined with the extremely low-pitched bass create a very strong foundation for this track. When the vocals come in later on the track becomes even more powerful. I'm not sure I like the raised tempo in the end, but maybe I'll change my mind when I've listened to this a bit more. The second track didn't do that much for me, but I've got a feeling I'm missing much due to not speaking Finnish. The Bizarre track is great! The sampled Islamic chant combined with some sparse electronics build up a great atmosphere. Then the track slowly transforms into a thick mass of filthy noise with some occasional vocals added.

New Malignant order for listening later tonight:

Sektor 304 - Soul Cleansing
Strom.ec - Divine Leagions Beyond Psyche
NTT - The Gospels of the Gash
Cloama - Lernaean Catacomb Complex

Earlier today:

Cradle of Filth - Dusk and Her Embrace
Cradle of Filth - Cruelty and the Beast

Forget all the stupid hatred thrown at this band from "true" metalheads and accept that these guys are very good at what they do. Ignore the fact that they cater to the whole teenage Hot Topic mall goth crowd and just LISTEN. Their music completely draws you into a world of their own creation, and that's really what I look for in music. I haven't listened to their last 3 or 4 albums, but the pre-2000 stuff still sounds great to these ears after years of not listening to them.

MUSLIMGAUZE "Ayatollah Dollar" MCD (Staalplaat)

This one is mostly about dubby sub bass and sparse laidback rhytms, aided by vinyl crackle and additional field recordings. Not much melodies throughout and quite light in atmosphere. I wish more of Bryn's compact discs would be like this - devoid of fill-out tracks and better selection of tracks that works well together. Gorgeous packaging.

Two side-long drone pieces. The A side is pretty good with quite a heavy and grating sound and some decent progression throughout the track. The B side isn't as good, and I felt the track didn't go anywhere and didn't do much for me. Decent tape, though, thanks to the A side.

That tape is a killer. I love the two covers. I think I wrote a review of this on the Chondritic forums last year.

but my playlist
Loscil - Triple Point - (CD) relaxing, ambient techno with a touch of dub. More ambient than techno and perfect for reading which is what I've got to do for the next 8 hours...
Branikald - Blikk Av Kald - (CD)fuck tons of reverb, especially on the opener and closer, both being the best tracks in my opinion. Just make me imagine some giant stone citadel, with Brankald in the middle playing all alone. Something out of Tolkien
Narcosis - Best Served Cold: Discography (CD)
Funeral Mongoloids - Fuck Is Best When God Is Dead (cassette)
Nurture Abuse - Nurture Abuse (cassette) Best recorded material yet and more bass than ever which is always a plus in my book. Still I think this group is best live and their set in Brooklyn last week is evidence.

just finished off a very nice evening of listening to various drones and experimental music with a friend of mine. To find time to play as much as possible I had to limit the playlist to side A of each recording.
La Monte Young - Dream House
Terry Riley - Persian Surgery Dervishes
Merzbow - !!!????!!! with memorial gadgets
NWW - Sylvie and Babs
NWW - Spiral Insana
Takehisa Kosugi - Catch Wave
NWW - Soliloquy for Lilith
MB - Neuro Habitat

All recordings worked well to exclusively play side 1 from except Spiral Insana and Catch Wave. They got cut in a rather clumpsy way since they are more continous perhaps.


a lot of drones due to the company and the late evening. all classics in their own right. atleast to me.

King of Snakes LP, I have still copies. Should be listed at www.cfprod.com/nh  use "search" for band name.
I got some rare shirts of band in my shop what was sold on tour. Also 1 copy of hoodie they made for pre-order only. I think it was quite small size. Perhaps Medium. Merch is at sarvilevyt shop, also some other RFR stuff not available anywhere else.

PRAYING FOR OBLIVION "turm schweigen" CD - this is the new release of Finnish label. I think this album is better than some CDR's I got from band while ago. It still has kind of effect ridden feeling which could be less. It's nice alternative for pure feedback/junk/harshness type, without going into "euro-industrial" at all.

Listened most of the Turgid Animal 7"s. Some pretty good, some ok'ish. Few very bold choises of rather unknown bands. Some perhaps little dull, being such a "big bands" normally not associated with label recruited for release. Lots of different sides of Mutant Ape, who is musically one of the best from UK. Diverse, often surprising, but brings the quality sound.

John Cale & Terry Riley  - Church Of Anthrax LP
Nice synthesis of pop/rock, jazz and Rileyesque ethnicism. Not minimal or anything like that, but has this funny "insistent groove" going for it. I avoided this for many years, I guess I thought it was going to be boring fusion-shit. Silly me.

Trepaneringsritualen  - Septentrional cass
Pretty cool stuff. I guess it's safe to say that is "ritualistic" by design. Strange atmosphere lasts throughout the tape, not really evil but somehow threatening...  Nice rhythms and vocals, I approve.

Toy bizarre - kdi dctb 122 [f] 3" cd-r
The format is probably my least favorite one but the content is nice in this case. Field recordings from nature (birds, wind, thunder etc.) overlaid with a harmonious drone (made with cymbals, strings, electronics ?? I dunno). Nothing spectacular, just good sounds that hit the spot for me in this time and place.

AARON DILLOWAY "chain ballad" 7"
nice turgid animal 7", which is the raw hand made noise works of Dilloway. I know many people do have either the most passionate love for this side of USA noise or the opposite, utmost dis-interest and dislike. But honestly, just take a listen and these broken raw noises, malfunctioning analogue gear. Hiss, humm, crackles, raw distortion blasts etc. All not only good, but perfect for 7" vinyl in every other way, except I have slight feeling as if especially b-side was just cut of longer piece.. which could have had more intentional & focused "composition". Sounds of material could satisfy anyone into some raw Filth & Violence type of sound.

WINCE -tape
So.. who knows this White Centipede Noise -label? Maybe you should. I know, that c-30 with xerox J-card including hairy pussy, kkklansmen, .. and is it some sort of wire, sausages or whatever, should be the alarm sign of "move this item closer to tape deck". It took me time to actually to do so, but when I listened, what a noise bliss! We aren't obviously talking about inventing the wheel again, but it's actually pretty rare that someone approaches noise in early 90's Incapacitants methods. It's mainly feedback. Fierce and uncomfortable with high end distorted crackling noises. It doesn't brutally hammer forward or try to really do much. In the simple uncomfortable extremity, it is very much recommended. It doesn't have the density of Incapacitants or the spasticity of movement, but just the pitch and difficulty. There are few tracks, which each works with slightly different set of sounds, but overall atmosphere stays the same.

NECKHOLD tape, another White Centipede Noise release. Very straight forward simple noise. At times I thought of some noisier era Prurient or just the modern day filthy noise? It seems to work on live methods. There is basically one thing going on, it moves fast, but stays in certain range of sounds. Always sounds like all-in-red harshness, yet is still relatively coarse and damaged sounding instead of smoothly fuzzed.  It is pretty entertaining to listen to, but can't really prove to be more than just decent noise tape.

I know it aint the same chief but it's much closer than Swedish. I found a translation and got myself a history lesson as well. The song is a tribute to General Koos de la Rey who had balls of steel but also was very chivalrous towards the captured British during the second Boer War.

Here is the original video with English translation. Sung by a guy called Bok van Blerk whose voice reminds me of Swedish heart throb Christer Sjögren. No mean feat.

nurture abuse - self titled 2xcs 2006 
dead times - aum war 
reptile worship - alpha draconis

Good choices. I know you ;)

Karlheinz - Creep (live) - Live material from three shows (2 from 2006, 1 from 2007). Each one is some decent rumbling American PE, some loops, effect heavy with loud vocals. I'm not a fan of the rest of his material but this is worth checking out if you can get it for a reasonable price.

Akitsa - Prophetic Heretique - Three tracks including a great, rich and romantic intro track that has a nice French BM touch to it. The title track is a stomping RAC influenced Black Metal, quite thick sounding at times with loud banshee howls and only a couple chord changes, the usual simplistic Akitsa formula. The last track "Goetie" (also on the split with Prurient) is one of my favorite Akitsa tracks; lengthy (almost 6 minutes), slow, crawling minimalism with high pitched screams at first and then the songs breaks down into a slowly picked guitar piece with some background noise and hushed vocals which then picks back up with a fart sample (not really but you'll know what I mean when you hear it) into a heavy kick drum martial beat, depressing lead guitar and more howling vocals.

Monde Bruits - Purgatory
DMDN - Agonistes 1 & 2
Speculum Fight - Glass Giant
Thirdorgan - Cyclotron

My introductory batch to G.R.O.S.S. (thanks mr. Keränen!). Solid stuff all the way, no yawn-inducing moments on any of these tapes. My favorites are probably the Speculum Fight tape along with the Monde Bruits one. The first is a prime example of the organic rumble method I like so much, the second one a masterful exhibition of inhuman & chaotic sonic waste put in order.

Franca Sacchi  - En LP (Die Schachtel)

Rather relaxed and subtle electronic music from late 60s / early 70s. Side A is pretty ok but not great, on side B the pace picks up and we get some rather great synth action, moves nicely in space and in time. Almost like proper zonked-out kraut-action - a tad restrained maybe, does't go for the all-out psychosis at any point.
But why o' why is the LP pressing so damn noisy? Almost ruins the experience for me, especially on the quieter side A. Makes me wish I had the cd version instead... What's the problem with Italian labels (Alga Marghen comes to mind...) in this respect? Are these all pressed at the same sub-standard plant somewhere? Even a thorough cleaning didn't help with this one.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: ConcreteMascara on April 11, 2010, 01:46:29 AM
picked up a lot of good shit at Hospital's sale last weekend. Here are a few things that have really stood out.

Grunt - Someone is Watching (cassette) the a-side is like a creepier version of Terror & Degeneration/Europe After Storm era Grunt. The combination of heavily processed vocals and atmospheric synths and grinding feedback really produces an obscure sci-fi/horror in my mind. And the first track on the b-side "DNA Test" is unlike anything else I've heard by Grunt. Half way through it gets into this trance inducing synth rhythm that leaves me wishing it never ended.

Endless Humiliation - My Wife Is Willing (LP) - black/grind/noise filth by Matt Franco of Air Conditioning. The music conjures the sights and smells of the dingy porno shops and filthy red light districts. A very aggressive and raw atmosphere that could only be created by a life long history of abuse, humiliation and base lust. A real sense of originality here. Highly recommended.

Exordium - In Warth Principle (CD)

Selbstmord - Dawn Of A New Era (CD) - this reeks of pure hate. Strange but somehow balanced production, excellent riffs and insane vocals. Highest recommendation. Cannot believe I did not know this project previously.

Will Over Matter - Might of the Planet Eater (2xCD) - Even better than the debut. Much more variation and little bit of the queasiness factor of the first album has been removed but more intricate song structure and more interesting layers have taken its place.

Robert Jurgensen is the main force behind this project along with Arthur who did some drumming for Air Conditioning. I'm pretty sure Franco had nothing to do with this. I agree that it is great, amazing really. It is one of my absolute favorites from 2009 and in general, especially for the "Black Metal" influenced Noise styling. I am hoping it is not a one time thing, but it may be considering the story behind it, but another release from this project would make me very happy.

w-o-m/bizarre uproar split lp

This split is killer. Both WoM and BU are on top form. The second WoM track is probably my favorite with these strange sort of backwards effects on the loop or something. I can't really describe it. And I like the sampled (?) vocals that run throughout.

Control - Deadly Sins (CD-r)

Bizarre Uproar - Teurasjate (cassette)

Enslaved - Frost - Yggdrasil with that folk-y intro, complete with a mouth harp, is one of the best Enslaved tracks. period.

Goatmoon - Death Before Dishonour (cassette) - So I digitally ripped this last night and the b-side does not match up with the tracklisting which has 10 tracks but there are 13 or 14 depending on how one short keyboard track is counted. Does anyone have the full correct tracklisting for the b-side of this re-issue?

Genocide Organ "leichgenlinie" CD/LP 2010 version.
BEen listening this for couple days now. Either the complete album, or just the 2 bonus tracks that are on new edition. I remember when I got the 1st LP and which happened after Mind Control. After Remember. After Truth Shall Make Us Free (well, cd version same time of course). And I though it wasn't as good as some people let you to believe. But it was simply because I was still blown away by many of the classic über hits of band found on their later album. Nevertheless, when giving multiple spins for this re-issue, it just reminds about the strength of debut album. Ave Satani is perfect intro piece. Mind Control is like the prototype of violent analogue PE industrial. You can worship bands like Subliminal etc but this is the real deal what has been copied by many. Klaus Barbie is the militant drum machine beat driven through various distorting filters for maximum damage.  Face of Horror represents the gloomy tones of keyboards and grim and bleak spoken word. Come Orgasm is the distorted brutality. Stalins Orgeln is steady analogue pulse and scrap metal echoing on top. 1...2.. Tot is amazing industrial-noise piece.  Negros in Sky-Wars is another noisy synth throb. Keiner Kommt Zuruck has the cleanest drum beats and synth tones with violent speeches.  Two bonus tracks from SSSM compilatin from 1991 is the great and seamless addition to re-issue!  a must!!

MONOS "Generators" DCD (Die Stadt)

- Mostly about the second CD "The Black Sea" - a 48 minute one-tracker. Reminds me a bit of NWW's "Salt Marie Celeste" but grows in structure and intensity. Still filed in the dark drone section of course. Watching the waves of eternity, shifting into unknown waters.

White/Lust For Youth tape (Störningar I Psykologisk Utveckling)
White side is great, maybe a bit re-worked but i recognize parts from the set played live 2 times last year. More reminiscent of the first 2 tapes than the previous recordings i would say. Lo-fi synth stuff from Lust For Youth. Two tracks; first one is amazing, catchy and poppy and it gets stuck in your head immediately. Second one drags on a bit.

Pleasure Fluids - Show No Mercy - One of my all time favorites so it is always hard to judge objectively. TF/PE filth with all the goodies: rumbling walls, high frequencies, junk play (I think), drones, victim loops, samples, vocals, etc.

VA - Gender With No Purpose... - Awesome sampler. Grunt starts it off with a vocal heavy piece that is fairly simple with minimal movements. Wertham are up next with some light walls of hiss, some higher frequencies later on in the track and treated vocals through-out. BU is amazing as usual; controlled feedback and high frequencies adding a cringe inducing atmosphere while a nice sample plays out in the background. Alexia of Brazil is an interview with a tranny which serves as a fitting separator between Bizarre Uproar and Silence of Vacuum who dish up some minimalistic harsh noise that progresses quite nicely from screeching high-end to static filled, rumbling low-end.

Manic/Depression - First Blood (F&V) - Really good debut. A nice organic, tape based sound with smoldering layers and damaged vocals which are skillfully buried within the sound. The last track is really nice too with the tape loop blow out sound. Sort of reminiscent of Dilloway, if he was doing PE in the filthy Finnish way. Can't wait for the next release, definitely one a project I'll be keeping an eye on.

FFH - Anything Is Possible (Hospital) - previously discussed in the Hospital thread...

Whorebutcher - Libertine re-issue (Hospital) - this is an album worth re-issuing. I had only heard Whorebutcher from his apperance on Field Tales (one of the best tracks) and the Like Frog in Winter comp, but I really like what I had heard. This tape sounds older than it is, like it could've been done in the early '90s which I like. No digital effects or heavy editing just raw and cold PE. This is a really good compliment to the FFH tape. The two longer tracks are punishing with layer and layers building to nothing. Great tape.


Front Line Assembly - Tactical Neural Implant (Third Mind Records) - My sister got me into FLA when I was like 8 and even though their later material is all cheese, their first few albums still murder. Sure there's that goth-dance undertone but there's just a perfect mix of industrial elements and electro-techno. Tactical Neural Implant is the height of their powers and I always put it on when I'm feeling nostalgic. I'm just afraid my tape is going to wear out at some point...

Face of Horror represents the gloomy tones of keyboards and grim and bleak spoken word.


I believe the spoken word is Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now. Leichenlinie is my favorite from them... I just like the sucked-dry sound especially on the vocals. Leaves the violence to the imagination and the atmosphere is like a radio transmission.

Control - Deadly Sins (CD-r)

How is this? I've been a big Control fan since I read the interview in Degenerate #2 and bought the Algolagnia CD (absolutely hate his choice of artwork though).


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: ConcreteMascara on April 27, 2010, 04:11:15 PM
Honestly I've only heard Control's tracks on the Field Tales comp and Hated Perversions so I can't compare Deadly Sins to the rest of his discography. That being said I really like because while the songs are mostly just massively dense layers of synth, there's also a real clarity to the sound. I'm honestly surprised with so much bass that it isn't just all muddy and opaque, but it works. And the vocals really shine through, all similarly effected like Suffocate and Silent from Hated Perversions. Each track is 7 minutes too so for $10 I felt like it was a good deal. It's made me much more interested in his previous output as well.

PS
I like how this thread has become more than a series of pointless lists and turned into less "serious" review thread.

DISGUST - "Times Ruins Everything" (3"CDR, Small Doses)
I didn't know anything about this project when I got this record but I have been enjoying it very much, my reason for ordering it was just the comment on the Malignant catalog "Fucking hard power electronics - brutal, monolithic and straight forward with some absolutely ripping vocals." and I think it truly defines it, with a great explicit vocal work because of them being not very processed with fx's, good synths, feedback, good structures I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys PE in the way of Brethren, Skm-Etr, Sektion B, Grunt, Slogun, Neuropathic Force Feedback..... very intense and in your face sound... maybe only I would complain about songs being quite short in durations but this also makes me itch having repeated listens!

APOPTOSE "Bannwald" CD [Tesco]
GENOCIDE ORGAN "Archive I" 10" [Tesco]

Those who can read swedish can follow my reviewwork through the whole Tesco catalog from beginning to now so i'll just give some short impressions on these two here - also, by the time I get to these catalognumbers they may have vanished from peoples minds altogether anyway... (Sexuellt frustrerad)

Apoptose - a bit less songoriented than last releases it seems - lacks some of the directness of the first "Nordland" CD for instance. More following a (pretty thin) red thread throughout with calm, very digitalized (not necessarily in a bad way) but pretty warm sounds. File this under total filmmusic cliché - i'm not really shaken at all by the theme and the pictures in the sleeve doesn't help much. Handicraft ok, but not much more in full whole.

Genocide Organ - first track from 1987 is long Esplendor Geometrico-worship with steady, almost funky rhythm and also spanish calm, spoken vocals. Trademark G.O. synths in background. Good! Side B, two tracks. First unreleased compilation track from 1991 - noisy, abrasive electronics with some flanger on it. Vocals sounds very much like Roger Karmanik at times at "Necrose Evangelicum" = reverbed, dark "singing" style. Can live without it. Last track VERY SHORT - nice, fast synthbubblings with echoing vocals - wish it was longer to be able to bloom a bit. I can most definitely see why this was limited to 300 - more made like a present for those attending the show in Leipzig.

Jojo + Sakevi "mammalia" LP
damn I have waited years to get this. Friend used to have it and played some tracks. It's not the typical GISM nor typical HIJOKAIDAN, but very dark industrial/drone sounds. Eerie synth soundscapes and guitar feedback, dark vocals, obscure rhythms..  Just great. Nearly by accident found mint copy in indiemusic shop in Koenji/Tokyo for pretty nice price. Out of the many Jojo collaborations or Hijokaidan collaborations, this may be the best one. Simply because it goes into new & interesting directions. Does it very well too. I wonder how much material is left unpublished. It says LP was "compiled under supervision of m.a.p.". Perhaps it indicates there was much more than fit into one LP? Perhaps would have been more valid grave-digging than Ultra Bide old recordings or re-issues of SOBkaidan or such...

Whitehouse - Right To Kill Do I need to explain?

Taint - When You Meet A Stranger I have reviewed this elsewhere. Short 7'' put out for Self Abuse's "Case History" series. One of the most interesting killers expressed through the sounds of one of the most interesting P.E. artists.

Offerings - Black Master Amazing piece of Power Electronics that covers a broad range of sounds, even rhythmic at times, and a nice range of vocal attacks. Hands down one of the best releases from 2009. Subject matter is dedicated to the dark lord and is put together in a mature and worthy manner.

SNUFF - Male Supremacy - the a-side reminds me of In The Spot Light just a bit with that pulsating crunchy synth line.

The New Blockaders - First Live Performance - got this as a gift from my sister. Fucking killer

Robedoor - Raiders - progression into more psych territory with less drone. Best thing I've heard by the group.

Caucasian Colony - Modern Slavery -  Really enjoying this release.  Heavily structured PE .  With the exception of the second track (which has some interesting low/spoken sounding vocals) the vocal work is really well mixed  and almost instrumental at times.  The instrumental pieces are harsh and vary enough in structure and sound to make them complement the other tracks and enjoyable to listen to.  Best Posh Isolation I have heard.  Not to say the other stuff from the label isn't good, but this is more up my alley.

Wierd! I got a master and a short letter in the mailbox if i wanted to release this recording a few months ago. Very secret with no contact or e-mails and Fagge/Moptaco Dics won´t tell me who stand by the music since the creator/s wish that. I was not interested to release it since i don´t know the persons who´s behind it but i was very good stuff and the cd-r on Moptaco Dics is awesome.

Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: RyanWreck on May 17, 2010, 04:13:25 PM
So far this mourning:

Libertinage - Quick Cum - Seemingly improvised high-end sequel that wakes you up good and quick. Occasional stabs of rumbling buzz in the beginning which eventually, about half-way through, becomes the main aggressor but don't be fooled because that high-end comes back when least expected, in typical Taint fashion, to surprise the shit out of you (headphone wearers beware). There are some highly treated vocals and I have no idea what the hell he is saying but I've never really tried to hear the lyrics they work best as an instrument here. I have always wondered why this work wasn't released under the Taint flag. I would love to see some more Libertinage put out in the future but I won't hold my breath on that.

Neckhold - Black Bile - This one caught me off guard. I had given up on 905 releases because I always got shitty "avant" jazz or droning shit. Neckhold shows that this label does have at least 1 sophisticated taste bud in their palette. Harsh eruptions and nice guttural vocals all unrestrained by the gimmicks that 905 usually put out. If you see this one grab it up.

Grunt - Welfare - Not my favorite Grunt but definitely above average Power Electronics by the modern king of the P.E.. Track 1: Junkie Cunt is almost entirely made up of subtle loops hissing about molded by a natural sense of pace knowing all too well that sometimes this music works better when there is breathing room and when considering the subject matter of this 7'' this style is eerily fitting. This track also has vocals for almost the entire length of the track. Track 2: Welfare. This one applies the same formula as the last track, subtle droning waves but this time there is some stuttering rhythm underneath it all, the vocals are still present always clear and distinguished, this time however there is a sample from a movie thrown in at the end. I "get" why this sample is here but what I don't get is why someone who has such good tastes and aesthetics actually decided to use it, I think it is the worst sample he has ever used, it feels like it would belong better on a Metalcore CD. This entire 7'', which make up a little over 10 minutes of music, has such a cold and (as I mentioned earlier) eerie mood, everything works conceptually well together except for that damn sample.

It's a nice day, no work, good tunes to review for my upcoming Zine I might as well put some more shortened version down here of some of the stuff I listened to in the last hour, or rather, since my last post above:

Strict - Kiss - This one still blows me away every time I hear it. If I had to describe it quickly, in 3 words, I would say deviant frequency torture. Although the the range here is incredible and varied Strict behaves best, most organically, with those high-end tones everyone talks about when talking about this album. They do it so well it probably can never be matched, it is sensory violence at its best. All of this with and a lot more (crisp rumbles, delay, etc) including perfectly grating vocals wrapped up in lo-fi production serving up the content in breakneck fashion.

Mauthausen Orchestra - Anal Perversions - You can taste the shit on the tip of your tongue when you're done listening to this one. Dirty, old-school, crusty noise from Italy. M.O., especially during this era (circa mid 80's), seemed to have a large impact on the Power Electronics scene and aesthetics, yet this tape and the sounds heard on this tape are nothing more than rough Noise. No real sense of structure going on, no influence of industrial, no samples, no vocals, nothing here that separates it from being Noise and that is OK with me.

Going through the PHAGE TAPES 100 6-tape set. So far I've played:

CLIMAX DENIAL- good but not as strong as the recent tape. Could've used vocals.
DISCORDANCE- S1 is good but S2 entitled "What have you done?" is excellant!
MORIBUND- good but not great. heavy PE but 1st song on S2 has nice brutal Jpn-styled noise going on.
SHARPWAIST- nothing special. heavy electronics. no vocals or anything that really stands out.

Still have HUMAN LARVAE,& SEWER GODDESS... I'd recommend checking this out. Phage does a nice job here. Pro tapes which were printed on (type II), nice cover art, bklt, etc.

Played the LP couple times during last couple of weeks. Perhaps the "not as annoying as..." is good description, which can be said about a lot of cut-up's and sound collages. There are lots of great sounds and yet despite my hecticly storming brain not always able to focus, but in the style such as this, the sound snippets so quickly moving to next, sometimes seemingly without much aim, pushes it in very edge of annoying & genious. After all, I do prefer Christoph Heemann solo works over any HNAS I have purchased.

embarrassed to say, I have never really listened to Christoph Heemann solo works.  My friend, who is obsessed with Mirror, recorded me a copy of 'Solaris',  and I still enjoy it quite a bit , not as much as my friend, but I I understand how someone would appreciate this.

The only other record I have from HNAS is 'Kuttel Im Frost', which is probably the reason I am not a big fan.  I listened to it all the way through, maybe once or twice, and there are some really beautiful passages, and some interesting music, but I really can't deal with the constant abrupt changes, and annoying bits of 'experimental' or whatever someone would call it.  The Melchoir is close to 'music', albeit strange sounding. I suppose it stands out in that respect

Isn't Melchoir recorded with/produced by NWW/Stapleton?
I guess it can make a difference compared the works done without him?

I have played several times Ättestuspa tape and LP. Tempted to praise them more, but there will be review in next SI.

Now giving another play to Wutanes Heer 7". Listened this while ago, despite being decent didn't feel it was spectacular. Made me wonder how come I never took this 7" back in 1998 when it could have perhaps stood out a bit more? Crushing bass-heavy noisy loops that are heavy and slow. Some coarse vocals, few organ tones. Presentation of album makes you think about some martialmusic/neofolk project at their hardest, with old euro war references, yet in the end, perhaps closest modern references would be Deathkey meets Pestdemon, with less things going on. Perhaps put together on 4-track and most often not even using all the layers. If artist could have cut out few weak moments and replaced with some better material, this 4 song 7" would be more recommended.

Funeral Mongoloids - Fuck is Best When God is Dead - Good Noisecore is a pretty scarce thing these days (with the exception of Deep Jew and Air Conditioning it is pretty much a dying breed), usually it's wimpy art-school drop out shit or talentless and shallow attempts at fusing one scene with another, usually Grindcore but most recently Sludge has been taking the hit. FM are more Noise than "core", all of their albums are great, this one is so far the best and apparently members of Mutant Ape and Seppuku are featured as "bonus mongos". This one features a lot less sound clips and movie samples which have been heard on prior releases. This time the static mess of shouting, feedback and muddled walls of noise come straight at you. Blasting and quick pieces scattered with abrupt tempo changes and guttural howling vocals. Side B swirls around featuring deep bass guitars, blastbeats, pedal abuse and hopeless shouting at times this feels like straight up Noise.

Post by: RyanWreck on May 22, 2010, 11:06:22 AM
I've only heard a select number of Mortville bands and wasn't impressed with many of them. I can't recall names but I would assume it was a compilation since all the music sounded different. From what I remember it was mainly quick Grindcore songs with lo-fi production and a few stabs at Noise, nothing that blew my mind. When it comes to Noisecore I am very picky, only a handful of bands impress me including those mentioned above. The latest Noisecore that I took a quick liking to was Fernows Tortured Hooker which somehow manages to create really good noise with grind elements (some would argue it is the other way around) and it doesn't end up sounding like that completely talentless non-sense that comes from the familiar "I'm just doing it to do it" attitude which bleeds into the actual music and you can sense/hear it right off the bat, unfortunately this seems to be the current state of Noisecore.

TAM QUAM TABULA RASA fabula rasa CD (Old Europa Café)

Italian group active since late 80's. I have not heard more than the excellent "Laborobiginis" tape on ADN prior to this, later work from 2001. While the earlier tape is pretty rough looping industrial (imagine a softer K2 maybe, with added, now somewhat dated, soundpark) this is more into world of guitar drone but still with looped, concrete elements. Bought cheap from clearance sale AND released on OEC so I was a bit worried it would be much worse than it actually was. While some of the tracks could have been scrapped most part is good and worthy repeated listenings. Cover features very standardized penciled sex drawings - could have lived without those anytime.

Went to Hospital yesterday and came away with some stuff I've been meaning to get for a while.

Highlights of what I've been going through

v/a - Hoga Nord LP - this was really different than what I expected and 100x better. I love the atmosphere and the sort of creepy, musique concrete style of a lot of it. Really wish I had got this sooner

Incapacitants - Box is Stupid 10xCD - working my way through this one. great so far and the packaging is really nice

Lifelover - Erotik CD - really unusual metal that sometimes gets a little to mainstream sounding but then goes back into more twisty and harsh areas.

Incapacitants / Sewer Election - split 12"

Sewer Election - Dedicated to Belgium cassette

Hoor-paar-kraat - Handy Feet cassette

BLOOD AXIS "born again" CD
what the hell! BA has gone so professional, it has very little of clumsy noisy early days atmosphere. Now it's about the most professional neo folk band... after Sol Invinctus? Real instruments, real studio sound, real compositions,... well. This is good! Some nice lyrics, still the obscure underground wibe of low spoken/sung male voice as opposed to some more merrier folk vocals.

Prurient "history of aids" CD
Got the LP re-issues while ago. And was tempted to listen it again. Well, due conditions, didn't have turntable in the place I was spending several hours, but good speakers and cd player. So, instead of vinyl, just put the old original CD on player. It is pretty much what I remembered. In its strengths and weaknesses. I have always valued Prurient into high ranks of noise, yet it's hard to point out perfect release. Not even History of Aids is one. It has brutal heaviness on bass department. It has crispy high end crackles and distortions. But often sound is very suffocated and kind of "ready to burst".. but simply won't. There is like rumbling bass frequency and broken snap & crackles which sounds as if your speakers are ready to break. But sound will not be fully unleashed. Harshly malformed pitch/distort vocal effects break the surface with high pitched attacks, but noise itself rarely attacks fiercely. Many songs (there's 15 in 45 mins) are short 1 minute type of bursts. Grande finale of the cd is long simple tone, going through distorted filtering. Slowly modulated static tone, is kind of trademark backbone of many "PE" type Prurient recordings after this. Strength of album is absolutely fact that there isn't another noise cd like this. One can think about Masonna, Randy Yau,.. even Sutcliffe Jugend or such. And then come to conclusion that any link to them would be clueless and just inaccurate. Philosophy and the sound, is unique. And that's something what can be respected. But sonically, I still prefer albums such as "Fossil", "Black Vase" (2xLP edition with the nasty feedback track!) and "Arrowhead", where sound is more piercing and violent than low end rumbling and crackles. I really hope LP versions of Fossil or/and Arrowhead will be done! Especially latter, since I unfortunately only own the advance copy CDR, not even the real CD.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: ConcreteMascara on May 26, 2010, 07:59:34 PM
I heard Dom say that he wasn't really that pleased with Arrowhead so I think chances are lower that it will be released on vinyl.


edit

Iron Fist of the Sun - Blush - holy shit. This is fucking great. A really clean, hi-fidelity sound but still raw. I love it especially A3, Feel The Boot. Rhythmic and snarling.

AHLZAGAILZEHGUH "Enemy of the future" TAPE (Truculent)

Long time since I listened to any harsh noise but this was a refreshing experience! I don't know if it had anything to do with being able to play it at loud volume on boombox in the cellar of my day work? Good stream of sounds with enough variation - C20 tapes with one track per side also works good for this type of noise.

Otto Mühl - AAM 1 LP

Pretty enjoyable aktionist tomfoolery. Nonsense singing to jazz-tinged rhythms and generally teutonic humour on side A. Side B includes also some lady giving the lowdown on her parents and other group therapy -type madness. The only problem I have is with the annoying distortion on the first part of side A. Is it on the original master tape, does it come from the vinyl transfer of this "grey area"  reissue or what? I dunno but it really bugs me...

Also been listening to the first two discs of the new Kevin Drumm - Necro Acoustic 5CD. Very very nice, can't wait to explore the rest. This man does not disappoint.

Deathpile "Ne Plus Ultra" ??

Well, I can't see any connection, than.. well, it's heavy. But Ne Plust Ultra is layers over layers of effected & distorted synths. With some buried vocals.
I always thought that it was perhaps musically one of the best Deathpile, but vocals could have been louder. While something like Deathpile/Discordance LP DP side has too loud vocals. It was rare case when they got everything just perfect. G.R. has great vocals, but in end vocal sound same in all tracks and the noise aggressive yet less depth & dimension.
Sound of Ne Plus Ultra with vocal strength of G.R. and some old style DP effects in some tracks. Perfect DP album? Could have been.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: RyanWreck on May 27, 2010, 10:47:52 PM

Xiphoid Dementia - might is blight  - Pretty decent industrial sounding stuff. Reminds me slightly of Militia at times.   I feel maybe there are too many independent  ideas jammed into each track though, some of the songs sounding like they could be split into 2 or three songs.

H.N.A.S - Melchoir - Thought I had sold this a long time ago.  Glad I didn't.  Not as annoying as a lot of the other stuff from them I have heard.

Played the LP couple times during last couple of weeks. Perhaps the "not as annoying as..." is good description, which can be said about a lot of cut-up's and sound collages. There are lots of great sounds and yet despite my hecticly storming brain not always able to focus, but in the style such as this, the sound snippets so quickly moving to next, sometimes seemingly without much aim, pushes it in very edge of annoying & genious. After all, I do prefer Christoph Heemann solo works over any HNAS I have purchased.

HNAS are one of my all time favorites, but it's true I enjoy the more 'focused' work to the collage/cut-up sounding material. I think that 'Im Schatten Der Mohre', 'Ach! Dieser Bart' and the 'Bitte Werfen...' M-LP are the best ones especially if you prefer Heemann's solo material.

DAMION ROMERO twins DLP (Tone Filth)

If minimalism is your thing you can find it here. Four side long tracks of simple tone manipulations, first two without any effects or overdubs, second LP with some distortion and added layering. Label name is pretty spot on for the second LP here also, though maybe not in today "standard" of filth. Reminds me a bit of Andrew Chalk's first solo LP "Over the edges" after Mirror, which was just long guitar with e-bow tones with minimal interference, though this sounds not as bleak.

I have often thought what HNW would sound without distortion added, maybe it would be a bit like first LP here? There's no sign of either harsh, noise or wall there but still I can hear the likeness in approach of sound.

Well, layers can exists even if there isn't overdubbing. Just things played at the same time when recording. Effects meaning effect boxes? I think distortion of sound is achieved by many methods.

Romero is very good, in general. Haven't heard this particular album. There are some albums which I feel are more interesting as idea how it was done than actual sound, but there are lots of releases where the drone is just about perfect.

Swollen Korps - Erect in Blood - Like all TF/PE units Swollen Korps is centered around perversion and violence, and like all TF/PE units they do it in the best possible way. Side A is almost mellow for PE/Noise, more like a cold industrial atmosphere with minimalistic droning Noise and some buried vocal attacks. The production is quite lo-fi. Side B is a conversation between Toole and Henry Lee Lucas where they discuss their case and admitting to their guilt, the problem is they never mention what they actually did! It's a tease but it is a good listen if you only listen to it just once.

Clinic of Torture - Whip and Pierce - I'm sure most of you have this so I will spare the long-winded. It basically boils down to three words: perfected, fetish, noise.

Golden Rain - Praise the Whore - So many people suggested this to me but now that I have heard it I wonder why? What did they hear in it that I don't? I've only listened to the entire thing twice so maybe it needs to grow on me. The sounds are good but nothing amazing; a lot of throbbing bass pulses, humming mid-range tones and some well placed crunch, at times there may even be something slightly resembling rhythm. What ruined it for me was the stuttering, ping-ponging vocals which get a bit irritating after awhile. Without the vocals I would actually enjoy this release more than I do now. I'll take a few more listens before giving up on it completely.

MERZBOW "ecobondage" CD
Recorded 86-87, remastered from tape to digital form in 1994 and put out by Distember label from Chicago. 1st track 30 mins, 2nd about the same. 3rd short c. 6 mins. Experimental sound collage is perhaps what you should call this? 2nd track gets noisy, but it's never harsh by todays standards. All the sounds rely on the natural noisiness of objects. Clangs of metal. Screech of perhaps styrox on glass or such. Turntable/tape manipulations... All flow near the perfection, just with imperfect touch of the human creator what makes it interesting. Full color bondage/collage fold out poster cover in jewelbox. Does noise CD's get better than this? Perhaps sometimes, but one can still offer this disc playtime and find new dimensions & details unlike from a lot of other albums.

Checking out stuff bought from Mikko's store yesterday:

Jarl - Negative Rotation tape
The first thing I've heard from this project. Nice balance between atmospheric floating and more rigid structures & rhythms. After a while I start to think that maybe it should be either/or, also I'd prefer a less mechanistic feel. By the end of side B I'm satisfied but slightly bored. Still, it's clearly good enough to keep me interested.

v/a - Tension State Of Collapsing Vol.I + II 2cd
Lost of variety on offer here. The tracks still sort of flow and merge into each other, I can't keep a count on what's what. It goes from in-your-face harsh to stupid sample territory in the blink of an eye. Cleary there are weaker contributions in between but it's still a very succesfull as a whole. Compilations like these make for perfect background listening, I'm not sure I'd want to focus on these sounds for full 2 cds.

Altar of Flies - Förruttnelsen LP
Ah, this is more like it! I was very disappointed with the tape on Cipher but this seems to restore my faith in this guy. Side A feels stronger than the flipside but this is just the first listen so we'll see... This is the type of music that demands focus and concetration, no use having this play in the background. The cover is nicer than what I thought based on the online images.

Now, if only my ears would stop ringing from yesterday's live noise assaults so I could start fresh for Con-dom, Golden Rain etc. in the evening.

Control - Deadly Sins (2010)
No huge surprises here, the same great formula Control has used on nearly all his albums. A cacophony of swirling bass pulses, throbbing rhythms and dense rumbles make up the nuts and bolts of these 7 tracks while various other noises of higher frequencies make appearances throughout the album, but they stay low within the thick and heavy atmosphere as to not dominate it with any unneeded excess'. As usual the vocals are buried pretty deep and act as an instrument more so than actual vocals (I actually only heard vocals on two tracks here, but I may be wrong). This will definitely be a treat for fans of this long running American P.E. act.

I can recommend his latest outputs, the first two parts in a trilogy, Vertigo Emission and Vertigo Border. On these recordings, Jarl has added some slightly harsher elements here and there, which give the music a more distinct industrial feeling to it. It is still the trademark type of deep, unsettling compositions he usually makes, but with some more jagged edges.

Something so good in this. Double 10" version has been sitting on shelves for looong time without being luring for new rotations. For whatever reason, took the CD version and now been listening it in the car.. perhaps 4 times in last 2 days. The method of ripping off old tunes and poetry done with successful elegance. The simple violin patterns of mrs Lee are something that I hope someone could recommend violin music similar as this. Solo instrument, slow, melancholic. Not show-off. Not folky fun. Not something what real violin music maestros probably do.

What can you say? The good days of 80's experimental music! Many bands don't perhaps stand out as pure masterpieces, but the album goes on with very nice atmosphere full of surpricing sounds. NWW, Coil, HNAS, P16 D4, Smegma, Asmus Tietchens and many more...

Funeral Mongoloids - Fuck Is Best When God Is Dead tape
Super great chaos! Works suprisingly well for a tape this long (c-40, I think). I'm not versed in the canon of noisecore, recommendations for more stuff like this would be appreciated. As chaotic as possible, please!

Merzbow - Collection 4 & Flesh Metal Orgasm tapes
Very nice reissues on Blossoming noise. Collection 4 is euro-improv done in low-rent japanese style. Sort of funny at times but interesting all the same. Flesh Metal Orgasm is much harsher and tighter, metal banging (obviously!) and throttle electronics.

Terry Earl Taylor - Another time cd
Mr. SS-Offizer played a couple of tracks off this at the Con-dom Helsinki gig. I had to get it! Being a good dj he of course picked the two best songs from the cd but the rest is quite good also. Modern blues/bluegrass style with some English folk thrown in the mix. Banjo, guitar, vocals, harmonica.

And in 30 min the great African horn drone (gets a bit on my nerves, actually...) of the World Cup continues!

I guess this thread is viewed far more than the review thread so I'll just shorten them and write them up here.

Coma Detox - Concussed and Asphyxiated Filth and Violence - FILTH35 (2010)
I was surprised a bit by this one, I heard Reduced To An Invalid only shortly before I heard this one and although you can tell it is the same artist there seems to be a few noticeable differences. Coma Detox can spill out tons of raw energy, they never really let up but with this one it seems a bit more subdued, not to say there isn't a good share of sparse chaos because there is but it is just held back a bit more, at least to my ears. But this formula works well with it, I actually prefer this sound. Most of this tape is made up of low and sustained bass rumbles and (what sounds to be) banging junk abuse along with samples and some vocals (fewer in number than on previous Coma releases) which are thrown up in a nice disheveled and angry manner.

Koufar - Enemy / Legacy Universal Tongue (2009)
Koufar always has such powerful releases, the sound is always heavy and crushing and the message comes through with authority and pride bundled up in a very genuine package. Each track on this one starts out with a clear sample to acquaint the listener with the themes which will be pushed through their speakers in the approaching minutes. The actual sounds, as usual, are firm even if there is little going on as is the case with track #3 "Ahalan wa Sahilan" which carries a sample of a 2 men speaking (seems to be an interview or interrogation) for over a minute as a few minimal tweaks and jabs cascade around his voice followed by some soothing drones that get punched in the face by a sharp hiss and up front vocal shouts and the track ends with some very high-tones being fucked up and played with. If I were to make a "Modern Power Electronics" mix for a new comer I would without question put this track somewhere in there.

Jean-Luc Guionnet & Eric La Casa "Maison.House II.V" CD
very bizarre CD. Jean Luc does saxophone and mastering, Eric La Case does microphones, mixing & mastering. It is all very conceptual. Basically, two guys go to 5 different houses in south of france, the place microphones around the building, and simple tones of saxophone pierces the air. But it is not really sound of saxophone you'll be listening, but the space of house and surroundings. Booklet explains the process, and disc itself has track #1, which is just calibrated background noise of first house, and 2 to 5 complete process of recordings.
One could say either pointless, or pretentious? But in other hand, with some flaws, I do like it. After few listenings, it's hard to say exactly why, but I think in the end simply the organic sound of nothing really happening.

Deicide - Legion

Happened to get pile of Deicide CD's to my shop. I had always the attitude of demos & 1st album being good, and "legion" barely tolerably, and rest simply shit. During the years you start to realize such "only demo and 1st album are good", is such a stubborn attitude of some metalheads, that should give band opportunity to develop & become something else too.
Well, when I put the "In Torment In Hell" CD on player (2001 album) I could not believe my ears how SHITTY it was. Recorded at Morrisound,... in 4 days? Supposedly short time, but how come it can sound so weak? Crappy songs, lame vocal arrangements and ridiculous sound. Not to mention poor covers. When giving "Once upon a cross" playtime, I recall I was quite surpriced back in the day that it had TRevor Brown artwork. It is much better. But still seems like lightyears from power of the debute...  Legion I still keep, but hardly ever listen to. Deicide & Amon, essential in fast brutal dm.

Government Alpha & PBK CD
collaboration based on studio improvisations they did on 2004 tour. It is decent, but I think only last track strikes really as great. And it is perhaps more standard with massive metal junk sounds. There are too many moments where sound seems like purely digital. Like line-in chaos-pad or such. If this was amplified, and then recorded, it could get more feeling. Not bad cd, but from two such a masterminds, you'd hope much better!

BODY CARGO "Echoes" tape (Autarkeia)
I had the volume too low at first, which made the music sound very bland and uninteresting. But, after turning it up considerably I started liking this quite a bit. The music on "Echoes" is fairly muted and low profile. The sound is quite "loose" and spacious... but the murky, dirty qualities to the sounds make me want to use the word "cavernous", instead of "spacious", which I feel give the wrong idea about the atmosphere. Most of the sounds used are quite muted and subdued, as if heard through a wall or something. This gives a certain feeling to the music, which I like, but at the same time it makes the tracks a bit similar and they don't really grab hold of the listener. The presence of a throbbing pulse in some of the tracks helps somewhat in this matter, though. All in all, a quality release, but something I feel works better as background music, for me at least.

BODY CARGO "Posthum" tape (Autarkeia)
This tape is much more varied in sound than "Echoes" and also contains more in-your-face types of sounds. It made me listen more intently! The murky atmosphere is still here, but there are other sounds used as well, that give more focus to the tracks. The second track of the A side even has (recogniseable) vocals and a quite rough attitude throughout the track. The most obviously PE-oriented track of both tapes! The first track on the B side has a slow, heavy rhythm, that is too slow and too random to be called a beat. Overall, I think these tracks are more compact in sound, more intense and more diverse and interesting than those of "Echoes" and, at least after the first listening, I hold this tape higher than the other. Both tapes are good, but "Posthum" is great! If you ask me, that is...

Oh, and really nice packaging in both cases!

I hate giving good reviews all of the time but this shit earns it. Wiking is a fucking masterpiece, amazing and original vocal work and that unmatched piercing feedback XE has conquered. Tampere Skinheads is more subtle but nothing too unique that would seperate it from the rest of the XE library, track gets best after around 15 minutes.

Fleshrevels - Extreme Meat Eater CD (Swedish HC supergroup with members of Meanwhile, Disfear, and Uncurbed).
Crow - Neurotic Organization 7" (when they were still playing a style of HC that struck me as tepid).
Desolation - Rest in Panic 7"  (D-beat?  Since when?  big production, but with weak drum sound).
Bastard Noise - Mutant CD  (an album that likely came amongst many other BxNx releases, therefore being mostly forgotten - one of the best of their albums from the Wiese period).
Alltid Jaget - Hjelpelos 7"  (crushing Norwegian HC with very smart elements of melody, as one would expect).
Kieltolaki - Massahypnoosi 12"  (one of the top Finnish HC bands active today).
Kylma Sota - 10 Tracks 12"  (fuzzy, sizzling, one-dimensional, great Finnish HC).
BSBC+NAG - Planned Obsolescence LP+7"  (I didn't take to this one like some have, but I do enjoy it more and more with each new listen).
Haemorrhaging Fetus - Procreation:  A Disease/Tangled Desires LP  (possibly my favorite Wall artist, and losing him was a true loss to the genre - here's to hoping he finds his way back - this album (two tapes) is phenomenal).
Bloomer/Mania LP  (final 2-3 minutes of the collaborative side (A) start to roll and are good - both solo tracks (side B) are sharp industrial music).

The transition from fierce Finnish HC to crumbling, crusty, walls of goodness was seamless.  I wanted to fit in the BSBC - Untitled and/or The Endless Blockade LPs, but I ran out of time.

Don't remember where I was, but saw this 3"CD of Juha Valkeapää called "siberian summer".
It says its soundscapes composed for Helsinki Museum of cultures Siberia exhibition 2002-2003.
Well. I listened the cd, and googled for the man and found his website. Been active from 2002 onwards, sometimes getting funds from state to just focus on doing art. With more than 500 performances behind, not sure how the new material is. debute cd was documentary of human voice improvisations project that was going for whole 90's. This is minimalistic piece. For 10 minutes it goes with electronic drone, most likely created with extensive fast delay and delicate high pitched sounds. Annoying singing voice of "khanty bear song" by Semjon Pakin is mixed with sounds. After 10 mins, they fade in some brass instruments. Trumpet? In c. 12 minutes the piece seems to get more depth. More interesting backing sounds done with human voice. But the annoying mongol tribal singing or whatever always lurks just few moments away. And the red line of high pitched electro drones eventually seem going nowhere. It's ok'ish and worth of couple euros for Finns to hear examples of experimental music that is pretty close to what happens in "underground". I'm guessing similar material to be heard in Kiasma later this year. Check out gig announcements at some point...

Any good? This is THE xibalba from south america?

Just listened CUSTODIAN "destructive resonance" tape and have to say it is good. It is not revolutionary or anything, just good junk matel & effects based harsh noise, which is cut into new things in relatively slow pace. More like Macronympha, not like Kazumoto Endo / Sickness. Saturated sound of pretty simple noisefragments put together into 30 minutes piece. Most definitely recommended if one looks for quality tape noise!

Immortal - Battles in the North

First black metal album I ever heard back in highschool. Classic.

Listening to:
Grunt - Someone Is Watching (cassette)

The Urge Within - Blood Red Sun (cassette) - This was released in conjunction with John Canady's art exhibition that opened at Germ Books in Philadelphia and the show with Pharmakon and Sexual Assault Rifle that happened last Saturday. Live the two new tracks were alright, but lacking definition. For once I honestly think things were too loud. Recorded however, the samples can really be heard, the first on Unit 731, the second on the rape of Nanking. High on the creep factor. And coincidentally the b-side features the very same track I had made a previous thread about, Rostov Killing Fields.

Yup, the same band that released "Ah Dzam Poop Ek".

It's alright, but it's been many years since I listened to that old album so I can't say how it compares (not that it matters). The mix reminds me of Deathspell Omega "Infernal Battles", with vocals and guitars very loud in the mix and simplistic drumming. I guess the Darkthrone influence is still present. I've only listened to it once so far, but it's definitely worthy of repeat listens. I remember liking the short outro song, just a simple but epic riff.

GRUNT - petturien rooli cd - only other from Grunt i´ve heard (i believe) is a tape in the mid 90s, and there is some similarities, but much better now, a bit too controlled for my taste. But i really like the concept style of the album and it sure has an old industrial feeling to it that warms the heart. Favorite tracks for me is the more experimental and rumbling (sounds like a march through muddy fields) "kansanmurhan kone" + the all out noisy "rotohygienian aikakausi".
Freak Animal sampler cdr - been a while since listening to noise/p.e. and i hear in this comp. some of the reasons for me getting tired of it a few years ago, it has too much of a metal feel to me. Guess Genocide Organ plays a part as well, a band i´ve never liked. Still very good sampler with many quality artists, only real let down is Brethren that i found to be really bad/silly, and also have two tracks (did skip the second...). Absolute favorite is Gelsomina with out of control noise, pure bliss, and also Sickness & Pain Nail. Yao 91404 D is an artist i´ve liked before, this track was good as well. Very nice comp, and good to hear lots of artists i´ve just read about here and in S.I. mags, must say Bizarre Uproar was a bit of a let down after all the fuss, maybe not the best track? - cheers to Mikko for including these two with my SI order (really like the magazine, some great stuff!).
SKEPPET / STREET DRINKERS - split LP - well, Skeppet sounds pretty much exacly like i had expected, like a cheapo version of Harmonia, but must admit that i enjoy it a lot after a few spins, never dips into new age territory and it is a nice style. Street Drinkers i first found completly useless, but it grows with some more plays, a bit Deutsch Nepalish maybe, never been my kind of thing, but it does sound pretty muddy and weird with the chanting vocals and everything. Good for one lp-side, and unsurpricingly like a somewhat watered down Ättestupa. Good lp.
SNUFF - untitled LP - now this is how i like it! very crude and unsettling electronics, obsessive sounding and no fancy shit. Maybe songs could be a bit longer and vocals more varied, but it doesn´t really matter, great just the way it is. Remending a bit of "Peter Kürten" with many very short tracks. Seems to be obsessed with "black rapists"....

I guess we shouldn't have a full-on discussion about noisecore in this thread, but check Mikko's definition here: www.cfprod.com/noisecore

That's fine, everyone is open to their own opinions. I am just wondering how bands like Endless Humiliation (whose entire album is a stumbling Black Metal, ildjarn styled blastbeat with barely any riffs at all), Trash Dog (especially the album I suggested) and Deep Jew aren't Noisecore? They fit with Mikko's idea of Noisecore, which by the way doesn't mean that is the definition of Noisecore just cause Mikko wrote it. The only band there that does not have blastbeats is Infarction. All of the others do as well as "chaotic guitar/bass noise and vocals", hardly any discernible riffs which are usually sloppy and chaotic with lo-fi recording aesthetics.

The original poster was asking about bands that are similar to Funeral Mongoloids, who themselves don't really have that sound which is talked about on the link you posted. Most of the bands I listed (besides Tortured Hooker) all fit within the same general area as FM. I would also add Cryptic Salve Band to my list.

Maybe a mod can merge these into a Noisecore thread here.

Don't have Erect in Blood so can't compare, but it's an excellent release nontheless - rumbling low-end, feedback, samples, loops... it's quickly becoming my favourite of the TF/PE tapes I own.

Deathprod : morals and dogma  cd

Easily one of my favorite if not favorite dark ambient releases. "Dead People's Things" is one of those songs you can listen to on repeat for hours.

I've been listening to the Goatmoon demo re-press and Selbstmord - Dawn of a New Era CD. The later is truly sinister while still being able to throw in a trace of melody here and there. And the vocal performance is really inspired.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: RyanWreck on July 08, 2010, 10:42:59 AM
Haven't been able to listen to too many cassettes, mp3's or CD's lately. Today I got a few in:

Mania & Bizarre Uproar - Charnel Heap: Two of my favorite artists go at it for one hell of a release. BU's side is slower moving than Mania, as one would expect, especially the second track which is my favorite and consists of well placed feedback slicing up a stuttering drone of crunchy buzz that becomes washed out somewhere towards the middle of the track by louder buzz and feedback and eventually shapes itself into a chaotic mess of junk abuse. Mania stays true to his usual approach as well. A lot more seems to happen on this side, it has more layers than BU, effect heavy, more movement and angrier vocals along with some more junk metal mayhem.

Liver Mortis - Scissored Out: I love LM, I love everything from TF/PE and I must admit that I didn't find a whole lot to get excited about with this one. It's pretty standard rough American Noise. Good helpings of hiss & fuzz hell, industrial scraping, pulsations, "victim tapes/samples" and loud vocal attacks. The best track found would be "New Exports" which, out of all 3 tracks, is probably the most "minimal" as it is centered around a continual hum of Noise and manipulated feedback and then breaks through to some walls of harsher buzz and vocals.

V/A - Heavy Focus Compilation: I'm sure a lot of you have heard this already and frankly I am too lazy to review it so I'm just going to say that the Heavy CD, which deals more with the heavier, noiser material, is my favorite including amazing tracks by Koufar, Climax Denial and ALLxFORxTHIS (this last one surprised me, it is a really fucking good track). The Focus side is more atmospheric, "caustic" and, well, focused. The best track on this CD definitely belongs to Gnawed.

Offerings - Black Master: Amazing satanic themed Power Electronics from Graham Moore. Next to Grunt's masterpiece Petturien Rooli this was one of 2009's best P.E. albums. Everything is created with the utmost attention to detail from the vocals and lyrics (which are sometimes buried low in the mix, sometimes loud, sometimes in Latin and sometimes in English including an entire track dedicated to the perversion of a bible verse/prayer) to the synth tones which range from warmer and sometimes even rhythmic tones, bass throbs and beeps to cut-up styled blankets of bludgeoning harsh Noise. Perfect release, I hope to hear more from this project as I don't really care from Grahams solo stuff.

Macronympha - Metal: Here is another one that I'm sure everyone has probably heard so really no use for a review other than to say that this is great, even if too rhythmic at times. 100% junk "percussion" and scrap metal scraping with "little to no effects".

Grey Wolves - Judgement cd
This is my idea of good industrial! Not a boring moment in sight, just great semi-rhythmic pounding of the senses. Psychedelic as shit to my ears.

Genocide Organ - In-konflikt
Got this very cheaply to find out what the deal is with this band. I have to say I don't get it... Competent enough but nothing that would grab me as interesting. Maybe the effect would be better if this was played at ridiculous volume and in complete darkness... not really, actually, there's something too cheesy here for my taste.

Ramleh - Hand of Glory 12"
Now this is great! PE done in the way I can relate to and appreciate. Oppressive atmosphere throughout, nothing too complicated or over-stylish. Vocals are just a mess of screams and squeals, quite low in the mix. This suits me fine, I can remain blissfully oblivious to any message (if any) they might be conveying. I'm quite ignorant of this group's output, must investigate further!

That's the first 'review' I've seen of "Charnel Heap". Oddly enough, I'm thinking I didn't do any vocals for my work but I could be wrong... Amazing that I can't remember!

Is that Teitanblood record any good? I was thinking about getting it when it came out, but I've never heard the band.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on July 12, 2010, 10:32:56 AM
Teitanblood is good, but... not THAT good. I think it is first of all too long to really keep the pressure up. But also maybe too "stylish". Too well done for the style what it is.

HERPES "Medellin" 7", 80's columbia butchery. Often nowadays sold for exaggerated prices and referred to Sarcofago, Blasphemy, etc.. but what this really is, is chaotic hc/grind/noise. Something what barely keeps in structure, most often riffs unable to be heard, just blasting chaos. Few upside down crosses and old english fonts hardly make it "metal".  Lyrics seem to be more political.

ASTAROTH "Aullio Sepulcral" 7", another columbia 1987 release. Devilish heavy metal with very crude sound quality. Some friend was boasting that he has ultra rare single coming on mail. Checked ebay auction with close to 100$ price tag, and thought maybe I should listen this more often. It is fierce and savage metal I got somewhere can't even remember where and when. But probably listened more now than ever before.

CONFUSION "hopeless" 7"If you ask me: the best ever released vinyl ep of any music genre. And possibly my most listened 7". Columbia, Medellin, early 90's. It just captures the violence, social misery and rebellious chaotic energy into muddy brutality. Because it's "grind", it is destined to remain irrelevant and forgotten, even if any day any time mops the floors with bands like VON, Teitanblood, Proclamation or whoever. Most often managing to sound way darker and sinister, even if it's purely lyrics of social problems of Columbia (confusion is the circle / where you can't escape / desperation in your mind / that brings insanity and suicide / we're condemned to live in a confused world / where only death make justice). Since it came out, remains big influence for majority of my projects in way or another.

GIL SAN MARCOS "Domes" 12"got this noise LP from guy never heard of. Great stuff. Kind of blend of more "free form" electronic improv and little new wave of american noise/"american tapes" references, but also much more textured and ambitious noise-compositions, which makes it interesting and at the same time kind of "vintage" feeling. Thinking of days of PBK or such qualifying as "noise", without having to be utmost harshness. 4 studio tracks and 2 live tracks, 45rpm. Two spins given, more is needed!

BORBETOMAGUS seven reasons for tears CD... was it? Well, some borbeto-live assults was listened with great enjoyment. It is good reminded that for harsh and painful noise, you don't need to settle only for contact mics and metal junk, but there are actually plenty of material to use, also with usage of traditional band instruments. They often have good range of possibilities to be mis-used. And Borbetomagus simply goes so much further than the traditional saxophone goofball diarrheah you see being farted out by endless amount of musicians in "improv"/"free music" scene. If there is someone who have not yet experienced borbetopower, I recommend to correct that mistake instantly! If possible - in live setting where the gentlemen really are in their element!

Agreed.  One of the best metal albums I've heard in the past decade (easily top 5), and I believe it made my overall Best of the Decade list as well.

I can get behind this. Awesome atmosphere especially in the more "doomier" moments, they even did some groove parts that somehow sounded fucking evil.

I wouldn't say it would make it to my decade list but it is one of the best Metal albums I heard last year next to "Execration of Cruel Bestiality" by Proclamation which, to my ears, took 2009.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on July 14, 2010, 09:42:51 AM
Perhaps it is more about tastes & expectations. I have always recommended Teitanblood to everybody, since I know just about everybody seems to like it. I can't hear much what would make it so special. I do have 2xLP, and keep it just in case the genious quality opens later.
I always considered Proclamation one of the worst fanclub bands. Seen them live few times, heard all albums. And all is lame. Very lame. It shows the guys who know what they must do, it shows guys who intentionally copy riffs from others (boasting how cool is to just reverse beherit riff and then its yours). It shows the package idea of songs/sound/artwork is been "produced" long ago, and now just replicated more.. and more.  All the good bands of the style (Blasphemy, Beherit, Sarcofago,..) made honest one (or two) album of the type, which made it superior, and let the style develop from that on. It wasn't product, or calculated thing where every move is prepared. I recall Proclamation taking c. 30 minutes to fix their vocal echo for live show. "no no no.. it must be  little longer and slower". Adjusting some stupid delay so it is 100% right. I'd rather hear metal which is 88% right. Allowing little chaos and unexpected things what allows sinister energy to flow free, and not just music producer mentality where everything is calculated from amount of bullet belts to what type of riff is allowed on album.

MACRONYMPHA "cut ups, drones and weird" 2xLP
First listened A-side with 45rpm and was like "hmm.. that was short!". Then realized wrong speed and listened whole thing. I think its very good album in many ways. Professional printing/packaging etc. Visually rough, yet technically sharp. No pixelated images, no blurry texts etc! Sound has to good early 90's quality. To me, this doesn't raise up to levels of "Baroque" or "Amplified Humans", because it lacks the sewere violent quality of those recordings, but like name says "cut ups, drones and wierd" is the name of the game. Occasionally the weirdo element might be too dominating (theremin or other high pitched goof electronics), yet in other moments monstrous and heavy shortwave and harshness dominate. Plenty of variation and good sounds.

In general, not just about this particular release: It is the quality of "cut ups" and chosen cuts of recordings that sometimes it gives atmosphere as if song just ended because of length. I think it might apply on D side of macro? Amazing great track goes on for long time, and then "click". Abrupt end, which seems to be there simply due side of LP ending. "Composition" itself doesn't give (to me) indication that track would have approached to end, but it's a cut-up from longer piece, which is almost in danger of being "removed from context" so to say. I think it has been under discussion on some 7" topic. Which is problem of many noise 7", when "song" seems like being random cut which starts and stop in a way, that you know it's just edit. Just small fragment from long piece which lacks the real beginning and real end. So what I say is, that it would be nice to hear more noise, where songs start, go on, and stop. Which show the whole arch of the piece, instead of being just best slice under format restrictions. Of course I should selfishly promote myself, that upcoming Testicle Hazard CD on Freak Animal is just that. Studio live piece, what is indeed complete. From turning on equipment to turning them off. It may not have the genious freakiness of disturning cuts like Macro has, where they suddenly change the whole spectrum of sound into something else, but it does have the atmosphere of.. ehm.. "song" even if being plain harsh noise.

HA! I bet you do.

I like TTB more than Proclamation; the 3rd LP worn a little thin for me but I do like the LPs b/c of the simple design. I do wish they'd throw some new twists into the music. Proclamation is playing in Houston next month but I prob won't make it...

INHALANT "bondage" LP
oh my! This starts ROUGH! If you wonder how you can make The Rita type fierce crackles transform into more "PE" atmosphere, first track is just about as good as it gets. This is crispy as fuck and sounds as if the speakers of stereos would be about to be ripped apart. It shounds loud and forceful. All songs aren't as good. Some fall into kind of routine jobs of synth backing + junk noise on top with digital atmosphere or even little bit of wall of noise type of thing. Ending of A-side gets into kind of old Sshe Retina Stimulants crystallic feedback tones which are always pure pleasure. Finally also use of guitar in a way I appreciate: loud painful noise feedback! I would say this LP is asking to be included in collections of modern day noise-pe vinyl!

Taint - Hel-lo : I've always wanted to name a project of mine "Hel-lo" but now I can't. But that's fine in light of how good this tiny little 5 and a half minute assault of Noise is. Next to the track "One Thousand Days In Sodom" found on the split with Grunt, this track features some of my favorite Taint vocals. Delayed and angry shouting over very simplistic rumbles and feedback, it slightly reminds me of what Snuff came to do years later.

Grunt / Mutant Ape split : Grunt hits us with an assault made up of a heavy, scraping loop which may also seems to double as some junk abuse on top of this are Mikko's extremely powerful vocals that remain the dominating force as always. Mutant Ape plays with a strain of painful feedback punctuated by a muted, droning hiss and some buried vocals. Both groups on this split end up giving minimal sounds but deliver maximum effect.

Eisenwinter - Monumentales Scheitern : If you have heard Eisenwinter you should know, or at least have a simple idea, of what this will sound like. Melodic, almost poppy riffs repetitively played through-out each track with monotonous banging drum beats, Black Metal rasps and lo-fi production. This album is not the best Eisenwinter so if you have never heard him then I wouldn't suggest starting here, maybe try "Waffe Helvetias" or "Antreten zum Verrecken!".

Ättestupa - Begraven mot norr LP
My first exposure to this band. Very nice, noisy & atmospheric with decent amounts folkish instruments and melodies to set it apart from many others. I don't know why some people describe this as "kraut", however, I hear nothing of the sort. It's more like melancholic & eclectic indie-rock (meant in the best possible sense of the word) set to a background of noise. I wouldn't mind even a bit more musicianship & tehcnical progress, as long as it doesn't mean getting rid of the noise. Very much looking forward to the future of this project & must get the previous ones also...

Sewer Election - Bristning LP
This is something that is not easily appreciated to its full extent on the first listen. Lots of quiet interludes and parts where the action is very much buried in the detail - in addition to the harsh noise onslaught. To be honest, after two listens I really don't know what to make of this. I know it's good but whether it's excellent remains to be heard.

Macronympha - Baroque cd
Such a great reissue! Amazingly multifaceted without ever sounding cheesy or contrived. Love the reggae samples that fit in just perfectly!

Merzbow - Rainbow Electronics cd
Not quite as eclectic as the Macro disc but still an expert demonstration of how much there is to "noise". Not harsh at all, psychedelic & mind-bending is more like it. Makes me ashamed that I don't have more Merzbow on my shelves... must try harder!

PRURIENT "roman" LP
Harbinger
One of the best from Prurient in recent years?! 2007 recording which is close to perfect blend of his "older" style raw harsh noise with screaming voice and song with the melodic synth music type of approach with violent spoken newsreports.  5 songs, each slightly different. Most often you hear the objects used for noise are small pieces of metal. Perhaps just keys or something like in Prurient live shows? But overall sound is harsh and brutal. LP medium is good for this stuff and I'd say this simply rides over all the recent bigger profile albums. Therefore being ltd 100 LP, hardly makes sense. It calls for CD re-issue!

HAIR POLICE "stay in bodies" LP
Harbinger
Great LP. And I would dare to say, another piece of ltd 100 copies LP what actually crushes many of their CD's? There's nothing really THAT different, but their ability to make lo-fi shit noise sound so miserably slow and fierce is admireable. When you have drums, electronics, guitar,... basically band line-up, but it sounds neither drone, nor sludge.  No sunn o))), no standard harsh noise. It's hardly "music", yet they do play something. Some people may cry about the endless amount of improvised jam releases band may have created, but without doubt, they have made something of their own, and done something which is pretty unique. On b-side, very tasty and most roughest tape manipulations! Should have been longer piece.

Mania - Miserable Disposition (2005)
This is still my favorite Mania release to date. Side A is more subtle (strange word to use here) than some of the newer stuff as far as layering and effects are concerned but the harshness is completely in tact. Insane squeal, controlled feedback, perfected. Hissing and swishing shadows cascade around metal abuse. Play this at your next family picnic.

Chrome Jesus - Anti-Aquarian (2010)
Haha, what the fuck is this? This one caught me by surprise but that was my own fault. After getting the tape I went ahead and looked at who was behind the project....Wes Eisold. Now I have nothing against the guy himself but I just can't stand his music. I despise those Three One G "hardcore" bands he is in (namely "Some Girls") and I have never liked Cold Cave one bit. This was the first time I let my guard down in awhile and I promise it won't happen again. There is one nice section on Side B at about 2:06 of some nice Noise, but then a clear synth comes into play and the entire thing is ruined. I felt like I was on Miami Vice.

CRANIOCLAST "(The) L.K.A. Sonar Kit" PIC 7" (Drone Records) 2000

Most definitely one of their more accessible recordings. The composition is very good with background slow pounding rhythm and lots of different overdubs, including samples, sitar and strange treated cello (?) on the a-side and laid-back piano on the other. I wouldn't call this one industrial in any way - very "modern" in approach, both music and covers.

Been delving heavy in on German 80's-90's experimental music all summer. Continuing...

mostly stuff from latest package sent by mikko: the rita / alo girl LP, utmarken 10'', new sewer election LP, new infirmary LP... and junk metal genius of grunt's "pripyat" track!!

i've also been enjoying how the latest ÄTTESTUPA lp is starting to grow on me. i liked it from the start, but full appreciation has been work of numerous listens. when will we be treated to a finnish debut performance of this group!?

HAIR POLICE "stay in bodies" LP
Harbinger
Great LP. And I would dare to say, another piece of ltd 100 copies LP what actually crushes many of their CD's? There's nothing really THAT different, but their ability to make lo-fi shit noise sound so miserably slow and fierce is admireable. When you have drums, electronics, guitar,... basically band line-up, but it sounds neither drone, nor sludge.  No sunn o))), no standard harsh noise. It's hardly "music", yet they do play something. Some people may cry about the endless amount of improvised jam releases band may have created, but without doubt, they have made something of their own, and done something which is pretty unique. On b-side, very tasty and most roughest tape manipulations! Should have been longer piece.

I must buy this item. This band for me is early SWANS in 2000s era. If SWANS were still from those years they would do such music like HAIR POLICE.

THE NEW BLOCKADERS  two new LP's on Hanson
one unreleased stuff, one previously only on CD in the 4xCD box set. Was it 300 each? Seems like little too limited. I guess was sold out in matter of hours. And who knows how many of them are just waiting in stash of some dealer to be later auctioned?
Well, both of these are great. Good covers, good artwork, good pressings. Hard to say which one is actually better? They both represent the guaranteed works of TNB. CD material is partly very hi-fi / high frequency boost sounding, but due multiple tracks, the atmosphere changes once in a while.
I don't know should these be rated as absolute classics, since they tend to recycle (?) the famous TNB sounds from past, but it is still guaranteed enjoyment.

New Swedish project, self-released, self-distributed début I think. Discrete industrial, slowly investigating the few scratches and bleeps that grow and disappear. Synthesizer definitely present, but not dominant. Far-from-your-face attitude, reminds me slightly of the longest track on the KORPSES KATATONIK album. Recommended if you can find it somewhere.

Cosmonauts Hail Satan - Satan, Yuri And You + Mortuary Sorcery + A Beautiful Girl Like You / Mystery Mountain 7"'s
Perfect music for washing dishes etc. It's a shame the format is very ill-suited for such activities...

Heavy Winged - Spreading Center cd
This has been sitting in the "to play"-pile for a long time, I don't even remember how I got this. Experimental, slightly psych-y noise with rock instruments. Not too bad, actually, I can easily listen to the whole disc through. I'm very happy they don't aim for the trendy black metal territory - in that case I would have to turn it right off...

Testicle Hazard - Het Potatis 7"
What's there to say? Great harsh noise with no unnecessary elements, no pictures of nekkid ladies or funky cadavers to distract my focus. Instead the artwork & title include some nice references to Finnish popular culture and school education! Jättebra!

Debut CD is very good also. Or should I say everything is. I think part of the debut is made of the two early tapes. Finnish tape label Joukkomurha compiled first two tapes on one tape in... 1992?

Do you mean the Cape Cannibal Skull Island Apocalypse cd (I guess that's the only cd)? Yeah, it's good as well. Although somehow this kind of music works much better (as long as you're not doing the dishes...) on 7", stupid lo-fi weirdo madness fits the format. I'm still missing some of the 7"s (Grunt split, Hellraiser, Cosmic Invocation), luckily they're still easy to find, must complete the collection soon.

been going through the VOD box set of PORTION CONTROL... damn. I can tell that it's possible to listen minimal synth / pre-EBM or whatever it is, but one does keep wondering if I should, or rather focus on something what is more to my tastes?

test pressings of SATANIC WARMASTER LP & SATANIC WARMASTER 7". Roughest and nastiest SW yet? 7" recorded on dictatophone/walkman type of thing with almost 9 minutes on side of single. Harsh.

Post by: Tommy Carlsson on August 07, 2010, 05:48:48 PM
Usually when I get the Vinyl On Demand packages, I start off with whatever seems least likely I will enjoy. Last time it was the Die Form box set. I tried to listen to it from start to finish, but the music was just absolutely dreadful, so I listened for a while until I couldn't take it anymore and picked up the needle and moved it forward a bit. Still dreadful. Picked up the needle again + moved it forward. Same old rubbish music throughout. I skimmed through the 6LP set in about half an hour that way. Suffice to say I will not be fooled into thinking I need to ever listen to anything from Die Form again.

This time I started with the Portion Control box, and I was a bit more serious in trying to listen to most of it, but at the 5th LP I gave up completely. I don't understand this kind of music, I think it's utter rubbish, and I'm just sorry that Frank of VOD feels it's worthy of inclusion in the VOD release schedule. The EBM/rhythmic synth pop stuff does absolutely fuck all for me, but I like to think I'm somewhat open-minded musically, so I wasn't altogether unhappy about giving this box a try. But fuck it, to these ears this is about as embarrassing as it gets. "Angry" shouted vocals, weak-ass synth sounds, holy macaroni how can anyone stomach this junk? Some bits of the Shot in the Belly tape were at least semi-listenable mainly because it was lacking the silly vocals, but that's about as good as it gets I'm afraid. Nah, I wish VOD would just drop the whole synth pop thing and do more releases in line with the TNB and Hijokaidan stuff we got earlier...

Now onto the oversized Current 93 box. The size of that thing is a nuisance -- it's much too large to fit into my LP shelf! Feck!!

re: C93 boxes on VOD.
Just a thought. If there is anything Current 93-related that has remained unreleased to this day, then there is probably a very good reason for it.

After the first LP-side of these boxes, I am thinking I was so right about that.

Los Angeles Free Music Society - The Lowest Form Of Music 10cd box
Slowly (!) getting ready for the October London LAFMS extravagaza. There's so much variety on offer here: goofiness, noise, semi-serious experimentation etc. Perfect as a soundtrack for a HOT summer day such as this one. The problem with big boxsets is that they never get as much rotation as single/double discs of similar quality. But at least now I have clear motivation to play this as much as possible.

But there's more to life than weird noises, right now it's Lucinda Williams....

I have listened to half of the material of the Portion Control box. I think it is great, but then I really like this type of music and Portion Control have always been one my favourite acts in this genre (the reason I bought the box). I obviously think it is great that Frank does this type of releases as well, as there are numerous early acts with lots of tape releases that you may not otherwise hear. I did like most of the Die Form box as well.

Four Swedish acts take one side each of two tapes. The third being Thuggee and a little surprise return of one off from a couple of years ago.

haha, Tommy, just my thought of this set. I usually more or less by reflex buy any new C93 vinyl that gets in my way, but this one sounded like leftovers served on silver plates. (and "pale queens..." always was my least favorite record by them to start with) Just grabbed the "emblems" lp and even that somewhat confirmed this, some really good tracks on it but very uneven. Loved the latest proper C93 lp though and also the picture 12" released at the same time.




Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: Tommy Carlsson on August 10, 2010, 01:48:25 PM
Personally I really wouldn't mind if VOD halted the whole OTT luxury-box thing they have been getting into lately. The NWW and C93 boxes are ridiculously "special". I think there is way too much focus on packaging, and perhaps not enough on content. This goes for a lot of labels, not just VOD, mind you.

Having listened to both of the C93 boxes, there were some pretty nifty moments on them. The Tokyo concerts in particular have some great tracks (terrible version of This ain't the summer of love not being one of them). I also quite dug some of the looped music tracks, although most of them are ruined by Tibet's yammering vocals. I hadn't heard the Christ + the pale queens 2LP before, and the side-long instrumental track of looped violins + percussion from that one was actually right up my alley.

Operation Miranda - Children Pornography Review - boring

I agree. I paid far too much for what it was.

Tonight:

Hvide Sejl - Dignity - Definitely getting better with each release but still too minimal for my personal preferences. Very light maneuvering of drones and ambient noise. It needs something more dominating to spill out of the stagnation.

Slogun - Ever Mistake A Little Deeper - Slogun sticks to a very rigorous template of simple, low-end crunch and assertive, high in the mix, vocal stabs. Here, in this short 2 song CDr, we are exposed openly to strong vocal attacks that tower over the noise, which is fairly simplistic in its approach. Track 1 is pretty much just vocals over a long conversation with a girl, the second track "Gutter Lane" is also quite reserved when it comes to the noise and shows off the vocals without any interruption. I like this formula for Slogun and hope to hear more material from him that feels like it.

BIG SITI OOKESTRA "New beat for baby" CD-R [Negative Foundation]

Not the most prolific label, Juri of Mnem's Negative Foundation... 4 releases in the last 11 years! More labels should have that pace. First six tracks is comprised of their trademark strange sound of loopings, both from toys and other more concrete sources and machinery - pretty dark and gloomy. Rest of tracks up to 47 is just very short sound collages, mainly samples. Any other recommendations of their work is appreciated. Always hard to pin down but everything has been more or less enjoyable.

Been on a bit of a Swiss trip today.

OP Recths - Murder Report LP. Yeah I like this. Classic style power electronics from the late eighties. Looooong Ed Gein tribute.
Tappava Günder 7" "File under psychedelic power electronics" I can't say my collection of psychedelic power electronics is anywhere as big as it should have been. Weird stuff this. Somewhere between performance art and power electronics.
NJD 10" More weirdness from Switzerland. Titles in Swedish although Mun i håla sounds very strange in Swedish. I think the backbone is guitar drones mixed up with some concrete sounds. More psychedelic to my ears than Tappava Günder. Good. I need to listen to this more often.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST

Yeah, it's weird you don't hear more about Op Rechts. Did that LP come out at a particularly bad time, or was there no distribution, or why isn't it more widely known? I'd like to know. Should be discussed more often, maybe even should be considered old and clandestine enough that it begs for a place in the "PE canon".

Right now I am listening to the Coup De Grace Over Europe tape, on Club Moral (1986). What struck me first (since it's been a few years since I last listened to this one) is how AMAZING the sound quality is. Hi-fi sound on normal grade tape, not bad for a 20+ yr old cassette. And the sounds, man, great authoritative and sparse material, only occasionally drifting off in annoying synth noodling (which assumedly is delivered by his Club Moral mates backing him), the live recordings are mostly of very good sound quality. Highly enjoyable power electronics of a kind that I'm not seeing being made anywhere at all at the moment.

Caucasian Colony, two tapes. New and the older. Danish noisy PE, which most of all gives you hints towards the more PE era sound of Prurient / Hospital prod. Lay-out and the lyrics have similar "arty" yet rough approach. Musically this is grainier, more physical. Distorted vocals, humming/drones, crushing noises. Not just wall of noise with vocals, but each song has its own composition of different sound elements. Promising.

V/A - Animal Bizarre 1 (2010) - I really wish this thing was longer as there are only 4 tracks and only 3 which are actual songs, the last track is just an outro but a very unique one at that, I explain this later on, when the time comes. Grunt starts us off with an enduring style of controlled chaos and staunch vocals that he has been experimenting with since the dawn of man. You know Grunt when you hear it and this is no exception. Next up is Bizarre Uproar who contribute the best track on this tape by cultivating an atmosphere of eeriness which becomes so much more disturbing when put into the context of this tape and its subject matter. All BU music must be "felt" and is hard to explain in words so just listen to the fucking thing and come to your own conclusions. Wertham finishes off the actual songs with a very vocally focused track playing atop a scenery of slowly bubbling loops and lo-fi drones. Finally is South American Great Dane, who I spoke of earlier. Like I mentioned, this track is an outro that wraps up a cassette dedicated to bestiality. It is literally just some audio recording of a girl, and maybe a guy, getting fucked by a dog on a wooden floor, and that's it; no noise, no vocals not even a slight drone or hiss. Other than hearing South American Great Dane once for the sake of completing this album as a whole, taking it all in, (as it should be) I personally stop this comp before that track starts now. Everything else is great as expected.

MAEROR TRI "Hypnotikum II" LP [Poeta Negra / Absurd] - Still so good. A bit harsher than the first part. Very loopbased and pretty grainy sound. More "industrial" in approach than other MT works.
SRMEIXNER "Ten thousand ways to die" CD-R [material of forthcoming CD on Segerhuva] - Never seen Segerhuva as a exclusive noise-label and this will most definitely change a few peoples perception regarding this.
STRAFE F.R. "Moor" CD [Staalplaat] - Not as intriguing as the "Lufthunger" CD but still a well made work. Stylewise hard to pin down, but I guess maybe that's why I enjoy this right now.

Will have to get back on the RELAY FOR DEATH LP + ZONA INDUSTRIALE and new TREPANERINGSRITUALEN tapes later this week.

One of contemporary music’s greatest and most elusive mavericks returns to Tzadik with yet another CD of ear bending electronic sounds. A student of Stockhausen and close collaborator of John Cage and David Behrman, Amacher has been creating acoustic art, electronic soundscapes and site-specific installation work since 1967. A new CD of Amacher compositions is a true cause for celebration and Teo! Is one of her greatest works. The winner of Prix Ars Electronica in the Digital Musics category, Teo! premiered in the Esplanade of the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City and is a collaboration with scientists at the Sun Pyramid of Teotihuacan. An absolutely stunning electronic masterpiece!

HAKARISTI tape (F&V) raw clumsy instruments and fierce vocals. Not really noisecore, nor punk. Just something. Short and to the point.

STAB ELECTRONICS "temple of self-disgust" tape (F&V) pretty much uniform release with previous tape. There are several good songs and couple lame. I think the ones with clearest voice are the strongest! One with strange slow phaser type of effect on voice sounds amusing. I think perhaps better than 2 tapes, would have been doing best track to one tape. These days one would think making one great release would make better impact than two good ones.

MANIA+BIZARRE UPROAR "charnel heap" tape (F&V). Finnish edition of this release is better. Better simple packaging, loud sound levels. Pro-dubbed tapes in standard f&v packaging. It is pretty much what you expect. When dealing with these two bands at the moment, you can only blame for one thing. No drastic suprices. They deliver the guaranteed job of heavy strong low end & metal junks as well as feedback & lo-fi amp damage screaming.

VAASANKATU SS two different 7"s. Helsinki drunk/drug punk. It's some guys who are known from tons of different bands in Helsinki area. Rockin' yet fierce sounding punk about robbing grannies, taking drugs, not giving a fuck. Pirihuorasta Perheenäidiksi is already such a classic song title, that alone for that, it seems essential!

CCCC "test tube fantasy" 7", sounds as pressing added extra layer of high pitched distortion, but no worries. two heavy bolts of later days sounding CCCC, athough it is 1993 live recording. From times when Ant-Zen was actually great label for noise fanatics!

LAST LAUGH  7", local label put this out. One could say interesting case. Singer of band is such a well spoken and talented guy, he actually hosts one huge national radio show and was one of the judges in Finnish version of X Factor program in TV. Tabloids hit him hard, when they realized he actually sang also in Wrongdoers, which was skinhead rock including Mistreat members. In middle of X Factor season, he resigned from band publicly. Now when his TV duties are done and none of tabloid care at the moment, Last Laugh 7" was published. Tight & fast hc punk with aggressive vocals. 11 sings on 7", one in Finnish (Vittu mitä paskaa) and 10 in english. Cover with POV car window cruising to hit & run to anti-war protest. "Old" bitter men giving middle finger to hippies, youth, pacifists,.. Was it 300 copies on Tritonus rec, so better to grab it while one can.

AGNIVOLOK "cherries" cd, israeli experimental neofolk. I guess half russian half english. One of the best music heard on Looking For Europe 4xCD neofolk introduction compilation, although one makes you think no wonder Europe is lost if Israeli bands are included? hah.. Well, Now in scene so full of "professional" hi-fi recordings of cliche's, this band with their old sounding rusty guitars, noisy dark experimental pieces and authentic sounding female vocals, it stands out enough to grab into collection even simply for matters of knowledge in the genre.

PAIN JERK + WIESE "nerima" mCD. Been listening to this few times. And I like it. But it goes to your ear so smoothly, what exactly happened? Basically from each listening I remember that songs start and stop very abruptly and are exxxxtremely distorted electronics. Real time studio live collaboration makes it different enough to justify release after 2 previous collaborations of these guys, but is it as memorable and intensive as the best works of these guys as solo? I doubt. Still good purchase for guaranteed noise blast.

AKIO SUZUKI / DAVID TOOP "breath taking" CD
Another east west combo. If one would have to find just about exact opposite of above, could it be this? Its digitally crisp live recording, but quiet acoustic music. No effects, no real amplification. Just instruments a'la stone flute, stones, pan pipe, ireba, bone whistles, dog whistles,...etc. And why I say no real amplification? Well, David does use besides multitude of physical and acoustic elements also "feedback device", but its sound is as quiet as any whistle they use. Just like collaboration above, this is packaged to neat professional 1 panel digipak, with professional lay-out. It already indicates that one shouldn't expect typical "underground drone" muzak even when tools would allow. Since all the echo effects, all the gloomy lo-fi hum isn't there, you'll be just listening 2 guys improvise. Majority of recording is quiet. You'll hear sound of small stones and high pitched dog whistle in middle of total silence. But when half hour mark is approaching, duo starts to increase intensity and suddenly it reminds more typical improvised music. Not really reaching jazzy tones, though. I could say this is hard to digest. My main interest in the album is focused on how different it is from stuff what I normally listen to. When this was actually captured on recording and put out on CD you can amplify through your stereo system, it seems to make sense. When I think how it must have been withness this as member of audience, I'm thinking how bored I would have been. They thank audience, but you can hear none.

Dorchester Library - Summer Incest (IOPS)
This is put together really well and every piece of it, the Noise, Guitar (?) and the drums, have clear definition all of them stand out as individual pieces which is rare with Drum and Guitar oriented Noise which is usually a bad cluster-fuck of noises that ends up just sounding like a wind tunnel during a tornado. Vocals would have been really nice here and I am hoping that this project releases more material in the future. Because this was the only thing I had time to put on my mp3 player before I went to work this morning I ended up listening to it almost non-stop for the past 6 hours. With IOPS material it seems that there is always an underlying theme that relates back to the subject matter but I cannot pin-point the Incest theme here at all, it's there I assume, it is just disguised very well.

Mania - If They Move... Kill Them - (Vemod Records)
This is one of the better Mania releases in my opinion. To me it feels a lot less sporadic and dissonant than most of the other material but still insanely tense, especially Side A where there is never a moment of relaxation after the Noise ruptures, it all just bleeds into itself and forms one big, ugly entity. Side B, "Hate for Hate", is a step away from Side A; it is fairly minimal at first and then it gradually shapes itself with effect saturated vocals, feedback, crunch, all the good stuff. This track actually reminds me of Snuff for a little bit.

I do Agree with what you say Mikko! There are some tracks i was not happy with on the tapes,though I thank Passi for the opotunity to get my stuff heard And of course for Shift for messing with and improving the recordings!
The new STAB Recordings are Much much harsher with clearer vocals! Working title baptised in brown water!

MINAMATA "cyclator" CD+dvd
despite quite clean & dull digipak packaging and the modern digital sound that lacks certain amount of punch and saturation, I find this quite good album! It is experimental industrial. Vocals, spoken word, electronics, keyboards...  Occasionally one wonders how much better would it be if the nearly glitchy quality of some sounds would be driven through amps of analogue recorder? If you get over that, the album itself offers more inspiring creations due diversity & composition.

ZFK "robochiy Kontrol" CD
Russian industrial noise done years ago by Teito Sound Company. Never heard people talk about it, but it's a good release. One long, nearly 50 minutes monster track. Harsh and noisy, yet also with gloomy and heavy elements.

KADAVER "Automatic Autopsy" CD
This artists is good in mixing together wide variety of sources. One may think it would be some blatant "death industrial" imitations, but infact it has very little, if anything, to do with BDN copycats or such. 10 tracks on the album layer together good selection of sounds from droning & humming machinery to spoken word, electronics, various noises. Despite occasional "noise walls" included in mix, it is most of all atmospheric. Never falling in trap of boredom of trad. ambient or "drone". Most of the time it simply lacks the crunchy bass and sense of loudness, and operates in thinner layers of sounds. When thinking this is a real CD album.. why in earth such a crappy pixelated cover booklet? With better packaging and perhaps some better artwork, than artists(?) displaying his tattoos, would rise album to much higher!

Satanic Warmaster - Nachzehrer LP
I haven't heard all of SW material but this LP along with new 7" are my favorite so far. This album just instantly clicked. The production is kind weird, fuzzy and bass-y but it works really well. There are also some fierce solos to be found too. And the vocals kill. I honestly have no complaint with this album. Perfect playing time, great songs, no filler. Highly recommended.

Satanic Warmaster - Ondskapens Makt / Forgotten Graves 7"
Raw and uncompromising. The first track has great acoustic intro too. A great compliment to the LP.

Heinz Hopf - Heinz Hopf cassette
Vicious filthy harsh noise. Exactly what I expected, exactly what I wanted.

WERKBUND "Neue rungholter tänze" LP [Walter Ulbricht] 2010

Continuing on the Mechthild Von Leusch project, which originally was released as two separate albums in the early 90's. It is pretty far away from other Werkbund works in the sense that its primary focus is based around rhytms intertwining, with little or none interference of traditional melody. Don't expect hard rhytmic industrial or anything like that though, I think it is made up mostly from altered drummachine patterns, manipulated and digitalized. Very laidback and "modern" in sound to make a soft whole - could be very stiff and geeky (I had a hard time with it upon first listen) but I think it works well and it holds a aura which I don't think is very easy to find these days. In very handsome green rough cover, insert with information (in German) about the project.

Mikko, would you be able to answer my analytical statement a few posts down in my Dorchester Library review? I quoted it here and marked the section I am speaking of.

Quote
Dorchester Library - Summer Incest (IOPS)
This is put together really well and every piece of it, the Noise, Guitar (?) and the drums, have clear definition all of them stand out as individual pieces which is rare with Drum and Guitar oriented Noise which is usually a bad cluster-fuck of noises that ends up just sounding like a wind tunnel during a tornado.

With IOPS material it seems that there is always an underlying theme that relates back to the subject matter but I cannot pin-point the Incest theme here at all, it's there I assume, it is just disguised very well.

Am I simply over analyzing it? It seems that every IOPS release drags the subject matter through the songs themselves not to mention the art and very direct album title. I know that Clinic of Torture has a sound that is based around pornography's "idealist view on subject matter" and the choice of sounds reflects those old S&M videos that uses, as you said, "one camera, one take" so CoT does the same in audio format = "No edit, no overdub." I also get Silence of Vacuum (I hope) in that it observes "the stillness of passive rubberfetishist" and by once again using sounds on this tape to perfectly illustrate the idea of being in a full enclosed rubber/latex/PVC/etc piece. All of the compilations tend to follow suit as well, i.e. "The End of Simulation For Procreation", "Hated Perversions", "Animal Bizarre 1", "Gender With No Purpose Other Than", and they are very obvious and specific in their aim, most of it can be discerned quite easily. But how about Dorchester Library? I can't find the theme anywhere outsides of the art and title. I also have a hard time with Golden Geissel. I'm probably looking far too much into this but I was bored, plus I was listening to it yesterday for 6 hours straight at work sitting there trying to "get it" and not being able to grasp it in that amount of time is frustrating for me. So I figured I would come to the source, the man behind it and ask him.

I know that may have been a bit of a dumb question but any recording I have will always sound so much better to me once I can understand it as a whole album instead of playing it out piece-by-piece.

Am I simply over analyzing it?

IOPS doesn't have one method of presentation. Some of the releases are concept sounds. Your examples are clear, and list is expanded further in future.
For example BU tape, which b-side was simply audio of the spanking session presented in the cover (or better, the special edition card set, which showed the moment of spank, but also results days and week later when bruises developed) is example of artist who chose to do it (or actually was modified by IOPS). But BU itself is not always "concept sound".
In some cases, material operates just in level of good noise, which compliments & tributes the artwork & themes, but doesn't directly try to imitate it with sound itself. I would find it foolish if everything follows same routine, perhaps even leading eventually into uselessness of various project names by same group of people. There is a wide variety of sounds and approaches to be issued on IOPS sooner or later.

BizarreSSMania - What's Your Pleasure, Sir? Very fine LP. Up to now I seem to discover new elements every time I listen to it, so that definately is a good case. Nice looking layout. The cover smells funny though, hehe...

Sewer Goddess - Verdigris 7" Good stuff, as expected from Sewer Goddess, yet no two releases sound the same. Nice layout as well.

Sewer Election - Bristning LP Definately a different approach to noise or something along these lines, but definately captivating.

Alfarmania - Bottenskrapet PicLP LP looks great, fine music as well.

Con-Dom/Militia - Scorched Earth Policy CD Don't like all tracks from Con-Dom, but some of them are definately very good. Militia is great stuff.

The Vomit Arsonist - Wretch CD Very good stuff as well, nothing really extreme, but great dark atmospheres. Interesting project to follow.

Asides from that a load of Metal stuff, such as
Blood Storm - Ancient Wraith of Ku
Satanic Warmaster/Clandestine Blaze split
Grave Miasma - Exalted Emanations
Akitsa/Nocternity 7"
Imynvokad - Ad Ordines Descendens 7" (great Black Metal, recommended)

Hated Perversions:  Nice compilation. Not very familiar with most of the acts on it, but there's some quite nice stuff on it. Great layout, sick booklet!

Degerating Finland DVD: Friend asked to order it for him with my last order from FA, watched it myself first. Good overview of the Finnish noise/PE scene, I guess. Some great stuff, some less interesting, but overall I liked this DVD. My friend is a big fan of Nihilist Commando, but I guess he's up for some surprise, haha, guess he'll like the noise though.

Halthan - Corrupt tape: Ordered this because I like his tracks on the Manifestations on the Road to Death comp. Definately no disappointment, stuff reminds me quite a bit of The Grey Wolves, which isn't bad at all.

Necrophiliacs mLP, early 90's german grind/hc whatever. Infest cover hardly gives much indication of their own style. Was there WBI connection? Certainly the chaotic and clumsy touch so good in old grind vinyls.

BBC grinding madness 3xCD, fuck... essential! Peel Sessions collected from Napalm Death, Carcass, Unseen Terror, Godflesh, Bolt Thrower, etc.. extensive booklet with mr. Harris in memorylane to amusing details. Just listened 4 tracks of Godlesh and damn it is good! Fierce versions of tracks from albums. Way before the dull "dub" influence creeping in. Both Thrower with their over-speeding thrash, before they reached trademark sound. And obviously Napalm Death being possibly at their best in these recordings. Two first ones and split with SOB only ones that can compete. Unseen Terror is also clearly at their best. 100x better than album on Earache.

Der Sturmer "Iron Will & Discipline" 7". Got and heard all the rest, seen them live couple of times. This was the last missing piece of their discography and now void is filled. And I just dare to say that maybe, they happen to be at their best here. Simply due its a 7" with decent amount of RAC type midpaced crushing besides the high speed drum machine carnage.

Ronnie Sundin "sunspots" LP. Had not heard from Sundin's work for quite some time, but when got spam that there was this ltd to 50 pressed LP (no lathe cut), though this is probably the time to catch up. Quiet electo-acoustic sound. Bassy tones that sound like electronic cable just broke. Crispy nearly glicthy electronic cracles. And so on. Decent LP. I know years ago I would have hated it, but nowadays have learned to appreciate.

The New Blockaders / Mama Baer split LP
Psych.KG
TNB is their 2010 recordings, nice stuff. Noisy, yet more into crackling and scraping than smashing and distorting. It's Rupenus, Durgan and Huebner in line-up.  Mama Baer is pretty much plain horrible. Child-like electro acoustic making no sense to me, I guess its main thing in their work, though?

V/A Swedish Contemporary Music LP
Fylkingen
I guess released sometime in early 80's? Found this for 100jpy (c. 1 euro) in Japanese shop last spring. Mats Persson, Jan Sandström and Lars Sandberg pieces are pretty much the contemporary piano chaos. Nothing very exciting. 15 minute piece of Tommy Zwedberg abusing tape manipulation, is suddenly much much better and makes the LP worth to keep. Piece comes from late 70's.

Order of Nine Angels - Possession (2008)
For the most part I can't stand HNW for that long, and I never go out looking for Wall releases. Order of Nine Angels is different to me and there is more style and evolution going on here than on any other Wall Noise release I have encountered (but that is a low number so don't put too much thought behind that). A layer starts, another gets added, simple enough. But instead of being boring and yawning off to sleep I find myself glazing over into catalepsy. The ritualistic and unhallowed atmosphere is fully present here and you can feel it, you nod off into the astral and become it. One strange release indeed and I hope to track down the other Order of Nine Angels material even though it is all so damn limited.

Order of Nine Angels - Possession (2008)

Is ONA connected to actual ONA? I recall there was interview in some zine lately, but can't now focus my mind where it was. There are some artists nowadays who are "officially" ONA related sounds, so it would be curious if there is band using the name, as well as artists connected to actual thing working within almost same field...

Anyways, the playlist.. was away from the stereos for several days, but now, first thing ARYAN AQUARIES. This is pretty much just the overall theme of recent listening. Last recording before "holiday" was Current 93 "dogs blood rising" LP, now first thing to spin when back home AA "meet their waterloo" LP. Psychedelic rock from David Tibet and bunch of others. 1987 release on Laylah antirecords, but apart from name and connections, not that special. Good listening, though, if you compare to too produced modern day alternatives like Devils Blood or such. I'll choose this anyday. This album at least reeks of sort of genious irregularity.

Ohtar - Petrified Breath of Hope CD - On the same level of quality as Human Fuel of Death. The songs are little less complicated and diverse but this overlooked by the even better atmospheric sections which feature clean guitar. These sections break things up and help to avoid potential monotony. The production standards are pretty high, especially when compared to other NSBM bands. I think this works to Ohtar's benefit because it allows the arrangements to shine.

Selbstmord - Spectre of Hate CD - Ohtar's more furious and ragged younger brother? At least it sounds like it here. The riffs are very jagged and not as varied but the tempo is increased. A good album but not as good as...

Selbstmord - Dawn of a New Era CD - Better riffs, more balanced production and completely unhinged vocals. Getting closer to current Ohtar territory while still keeping things faster and more violent.

Bizarre Uproar - Musta Rotta 7" - Controlled, unnerving, filthy and seething with anger. I'm willing to say if you were only to get one BU release this year, make it this one. But I'm probably just preaching to the choir.

Order of Nine Angels - Possession (2008)

Is ONA connected to actual ONA? I recall there was interview in some zine lately, but can't now focus my mind where it was. There are some artists nowadays who are "officially" ONA related sounds, so it would be curious if there is band using the name, as well as artists connected to actual thing working within almost same field...


No, they are not. I know this not because I've spoken to the 09A guy about it (although I am not saying he doesn't practice) but because I know, through 2 sources, and have meet the man (David "Myatt") who started the actual O9A. He is doing something light years away from culling camps and Lucifer. If another cult outside of the original exists then it isn't because of him or any of his disciples (at least not any that made it far enough to initiate others). Since the universal change in guidance there have been no universal Chiefs of the Order, there would be absolutely not authentic link to any of the "intelligence" which started the lineage in the first place. Therefore if someone out there is initiating under the name O9A they are not the real-deal. They may be legit in connection to these prater-human intelligences giving them the "go ahead" with initiation, but they are still not a surviving chain from the original. They would simply be stealing the name. With all of that being said, David's methods were all too physical and, really, alot of people could instruct those types of teachings without being in contact with anything outside of the material place. As someone once said: "The ONA has taught the most efficient way to curse someone. You send them a nailbomb." I think all that is left of the "Order" now is basically some far-right wing British people with an apatite for destruction and "averse" things such as Satanism. David, on the other hand really looked for a spiritual connection in order to help him bring down the "the capitalist-consumer West and international finance". He has since found that in the practical Jihad of Islam.

*edit* I think the Zine you are referring to is "Troubled Sleep #1" from Narcolepsia? The guy from the Noise project O9A said it best in that Zine himself when he quoted Stephen Brown.

Deströyer 666 - To The Devil His Due: a collection of their 7" tracks, probably not their best material in general, but there definately are some good tracks on it, so worth the purchase if you really like this band, as I do.

Deathkey/Bizarre Uproar: just had a first listen, but this definately sounds nice! Fine layout of the inserts as well.

"Thiocarbamide" CD put out by Phage Tapes

ANDREW CHALK & RALF WEHOWSKY & ERIC LANZILLOTTA  "yang tul" LP
Anomalous
Good stuff. I think something feels different, when Chalk seems to be in "real studio" doing sounds based on RLW. It's from 1997, and has the good non-computerized feel. Nothing is edited too nicely. On other wise RLW is using two other guys in 1988. Is it mistake in liner notes or really 10 years earlier, who knows? Despite decade time span, it fits well greatly. Electro-acoustic, arty sound crafting with moderate use of effects, in favor of interesting original sounds. Not too much of quiet/utmost silence, but things consistently happening. Great sound & quality overall.

Jim Haynes - Sever 2009
Stonemill grind droning - good album, but not a great album - typical in ways - rather disappointing because I had very high expectations for this album - just doesn't have the tonal/production aspect making it stick out of the pack - the bonus CDr of the ltd.ed. has the best, most powerful track.

David Coulter-Michael Gira-Jean Marie Mathoul-Charlemagne Palestine - Gantse Mishpuchah 2004
First track brings to mind Null in his extraordinary Water Period, Palestine's minimalism, and something maybe Jackman would finalize in tone, or maybe I'm thinking of how rich and deep Keith Rowe's sounds can be; also has an organicness to it that makes me think of Voice of Eye - that organic feel comes close to something you might hear on Aural Hypnox, but it definitely isn't ritualistic; more experimental with field recording makings.  2nd track grows and multiplies into a powerful machination - this 2nd track also falls into an ugly rhythm for a moment or two, as if someone in this grouping was listing to ANY dub ambient; YUCK; but it only ventures there for maybe two minutes.  Track three continues with the plush timbres, but it also flushes out the possibility that there might be too many chefs in this kitchen; it's more experimental and busy, sometimes defeating the quality ambiance; and here again we come upon a distracting rhythm...and there it goes (THANKFULLY) - if you could edit [maybe] five minutes out of this album, it would be so much better than it already is.  Worth it for the first track alone, but the entire album was a solid, interesting, high-quality surprise.

Sick Seed - The Great Corrupter: Nice LP, not exactly what I had expected, had expected something a bit more extreme. However, I think this is good stuff. Brooding atmosphere.

Bizarre Uproar - Musta Rotta 7": Sick stuff! What is there more to say? I like it.

Snuff - Male Suppremacy 7": A side has a bit too much feedback to my feeling, I think if you listen this with earphones it's fatal for your ears. B side, which has more of the distorted noise as well as the feedback, is more to my likings.

Antipakt - Fuck Them Where They Breath 7": Good stuff! I know there's been quite some fuss around this release and some people seemed to think that it was all about presentation and not about the music, but it's not. The music (non-music, whatever) is really good.

I felt the same way about this when I first listened to it and wondered why it was on so many "top of 2009" lists. It took my American tastes awhile to get used to it but now, I would say it is one of my personal favorites.

Both sides have a good amount of crunch considering it's a Snuff release. With that being said "Male Supremacy" is the best Snuff track yet.

*Jackman & Organum 10" - one of them on die stadt. Listened maybe 4 times. Everytime I feel it went pass too quick. And nothing really happened. But it lured for re-play.

*Lydia Lunch + anubian lights 10", more slow smoky oriental nighclub music with sensual nagger on vocals

*V/A could you walk on the waters LP. With Bushido, Konstruktivists, NWW and more. Some of the stuff decent, some plain embarressing at this point. Perhaps back in the 80's the "neo-classical" keyboard music would be fresh, but now there is certain toyful quality in it. Or lets say the whole neoclassical as genre. When you actually put some real classical music or avantgarde classical compositions, it open whole new angle towards the so called "neo classical". Which is the quick shift towards crap department, hehh..  Maybe topic about avantgarde classical music later on....

Alfarmania / Ättestupa - Split LP
Very enjoyable but part of me thinks it's all too obvious. Especially the Ättestupa side. I guess I was expecting my jaw to drop... instead I'm just smiling and nodding in agreement with the sounds. Very nice pairing, by the way, there's a certain synergy between the sides.

Vivenza - Réalités Servomécaniques LP
Silly me, why haven't I checked this project out already years ago? Amazingly dense sounds that somehow still make perfect sense. It seems I will have to do some buying in the near future.

Eric Lunde - Candyhole cd
Like taking a timemachine to past, present and the future - all at the same time. My Burroughs & Gysin -infested mind is so happy when I hear the words ... "Hassan i Sabbah".... Just great.

And then I'm leafing through the brand new Brion Gysin - Dream Machine book. Buncha essays on the great man coupled with loads of nice photos and images. I'm just sort of confused by all this book activity on Gysin in the recent years. Not complaining, you see, just slightly overwhelmed...

Very nice Indian music by "musicians, dancers, prostitutes and actors". I wish I knew more about this stuff, some of it is quite incredible. You can clearly feel the hundreds of years of tradition behind the sounds.

The Catastrophic Trio - One Night In Hell  (one of my projects with Boar and Doldis...so far, so good....i have spent 3 months trying to do vocals for a 5 minute track....i think i got it right tonight.)

that's quite bold words. N.H. is releasing new "Falling Monuments" LP/CD within 2010 if cover art gets finished soon enough.


K2 10".. damn, what's the name or label? Sealed in brownish red paper. The good era K2 metal cut ups. All good stuff, yet predictable if you have decent collection of what he has done. It can take multiple plays due decent variation of textures and sounds, yet if you have THE RUST and METAL DYSPLASIA and maybe couple smaller releases, you might be pretty well covered with this style of K2. Then next aim could be LP on PDB or some earlier stuff to get some more industrial sound. Have had the new K2 disc waiting on pile of to-be-listened, but something has been holding me back, waiting for good moment to give it a try.

Thanks for the information! So, there is a good reason for it indeed. Upon hearing the full song (which I think sucks by the way) it is more obvious that it is in Finnish. Should have recognized it wasn't Russian, was in St-Petersburg this summer. Also heard some people speaking Finnish over there, thought it was a very recognizable language then...

On topic:
Yesterday:
Steel Hook Prosthesis - Atrocitizer: I really like this act, should get more of their stuff. It's by far not as extreme as a lot of other acts, and borders more on ambient, but their dark, ominous atmosphere is great.
Brethren - Kingdom Coming 7": sounds like a more structured approach to PE, like it. Great vocals as well!
Sewer Goddess - With Dirt You Are One: very interesting act to follow. I like her vocals and the overall atmosphere of utter filth. Gutter is just the best description to this music. With having the Verdigris 7" and the Belialist collaboration as well, I know this is an act to follow.
Also: The Vomit Arsonist - Wretch, Antipakt 7", Bizarre Uproar - Musta Rotta, Snuff - Male Suppremacy

Ligeti/Heppener "lux aeterna" cd (harmonia mundi)
Both avantgarde composers born in 20's, who formed base for post-war avantgarde classical. Ligeti basically such a big name, in Finland you can just walk to any library and borrow his compositions if you don't want to buy any. This cd is divided to several pieces. Starts with 10 minutes title piece being solo violin. Continues with another c.13 minutes with more violin.
Lux Aeterna is easy choise, since the "pop culture reference" = used in Kubricks space odyssey 2001. It's eerie, dark and strange composition.
Robert Heppener offers 6 cycles of mixed choir music in solid 22:30 long dose. Based on modernist poetry of romanian jew Paul Celan, who's experiences under work camps etc probably put some extra anguish in it. You can't really follow the poetry when listening, unless taking the extensive booklet in front of you, with all the translations. It is most of all dark and eerie "vocal drone", with moments of dramatic horror-movie like elements and religious choir music. Lyrics=poetry is obscure.

AMBER ASYLUM "bitter river" CD
been always fan of their gothy experimental whatever downtempo muzak. Simple violin, relatively amateurish female vocals. This is 2009 profound lore record item, but just got it. Continues tration of AA very well. Features wide variety of contributors from Jarboe to Eric Wood and many between. Compared to album above, one can say that sometimes it is simply nicer, that the violin work is simple and to-the-point. And vocalists are not world class level trained people. But just someone with passion to create. In many ways this is exactly the kind of bastardized elements taken from "real music", but it has unique charm in genre of "underground art music".

v/a - Höga Nord LP
Industrial as such is not my big thing. But once in a while a fix of chuga chuga factory beats and solemn ambient is in order. And then a comp like this comes in handy. It flows very nicely from track to track, no annoying discontinuities that are the hallmark of bad compilations. Side A seems more exciting to me, especially the Dusa track. Flipside is more atmospheric without really going anywhere (nothing wrong with that, in principle).

David Behrman - On The Other Ocean / Figure In A Clearing LP
Acadamic electronic music from the 70s, two sidelong tracks. On the other ocean features flute, bassoon, electronics and some computer fiddling. Gentle harmonies and melodies with semi-fragile electronic drones to accompany them. Doesn't sound very academic at all, to be honest. Very nice background music to start a lazy weekend with. And it continues in the same mood with Figure in a clearing. Now there's cello coupled with electronic waveform generators. Dreamy, timeless sounds. This could easily be released now on some small edition drone tape label (with worse production values) and receive much (well.. you know what I mean) recognition. Not essential by any means but much better than what I remembered.

Doroga - I cd
Very minimalistic, three tracks clocking under 40 minutes. Starts with a big bell tolling and evolves...nowhere? Just some sounds vary, creating very relaxing atmosphere. Being relatively short album, it is actually listenable, not just something to put on background.

copynoisehighclassical / Songs about Pandas split-tape
Just what the name suggests: hipster stuff. Bought this one from local comic shop as the price was same as the cheapest beer around. Don´t know which side is which, other being minimalistic noiserock/whatever sounds created by band instruments played in very silent (bedroomish) manner, while other side is intended to be more experimental. Basically it is just some knocking over which some source sounds are being modified by speeding them up and down.

V/A - More Arctic Hysteria cd
Compilation of various Finnish avantgardish stuff from the 70s to early 80s. Most stuff, I believe, otherwise very hard to get, so compilation is fairly noteworthy. Some of of the stuff on the disc is rather jazzish and makes me wonder if the track on compilation is the only more experimental one from the artist. In case of disc opening Pekka Streng that is definitely the truth.

It is obviously very reminiscent of Sotos' "Buyer's Market" CD but, strangely, without the same amount of emphasis on sex which one would think a record label like Sexkrime would focus on. Nonetheless it is still a nice release, everything kind of bleeds together into a nice, strange cut-up story even though each sample is taken from different sources.

New Pledgemaster - Father Figure (Chondritic Sound 2008) - Very well done fag Power Electronics featuring a fucking George Michael cover song. Most of the time it is pummeling synth-driven madness with great buried vocals. The best track would be "Too Young To Cum" which sounds at first like a tape being eaten, lots of movement, then it breaks down into a low hum and echoing vocals layered over one another that become the main focus. I'm sure everyone has heard this already but if not it is a highly recommended release.

HAL HUTCHINSON "taste of iron" tape

big cheese said this offers some competition to the blockaders. weeell I dont agree. after admitedly only one listen rupenus still rules and other boy drools. the tape was still pleasent to listen to though much fuller sound than the pitch said. I was all exited to hear some eerie/nasty/annoying "stripped of heaviness" moments.7-/10

Not sure where it was mentioned, if I wrote it or just said about it? Of course not to be taken as TNB copycat, but closer to that than some other metal scrapers. Referring more to Changez Les Blockeurs type TNB, rather than the heavy duty multilayered noise of their later works. But it's not either THAT "minimal", but has multiple things going on.

Various Artists - Nyrkki Ja Kyrpa II (Filth and Violence, 2010) - As I said in the F&V thread, I personally think that this is the best and most thorough compilation since "Hated Perversions". There is not one track that I do not like, everything has something to offer. There are a few tracks that really stick out though, and those belong to Snuff, Mania, Wince and a new comer named Mortuario who spends most of his 4-and-a-half minute track whispering, in creepy Nicole 12 fashion, over a nice, lo-fi, synth-driven loop (or maybe it isn't a loop). Coma Detox gets 2 slots which is pretty nice to hear. The first of his tracks is nothing amazing but it surely fits in well with everything that came before it, his second track titled "Coagulated Exudate" is really solid with nice vocals over some lower frequency nastiness. Mania finishes off the whole thing with a more subtle approach, buzzing rumble, controlled feedback, alarming beeps, etc. than his more hard hitting violence, and it works itself out really good.

Silence of Vacuum - 1 (IOPS, 2007) - Just as it was described; droning and minimalistic walls capturing the sensory deprivation of full rubber enclosure. It is precise and surgically sterile, it works best through headphones when you can pick up every tiny detail and process it into your imagination and direct it out through your personal tastes.

GOVERNMENT ALPHA "Alphaville" LP [Segerhuva] 1998

I had forgotten how good this LP actually is! First track on b-side is a bit slower and feels out of focus but damn everything up to massive last track is absolute top notch! Playing length of LP format is also optimal - I rarely play noise CDs over 40 minutes even if they are good. Material with its impressive dynamics to return to after a long period of flat/"unsuccessful" noise. I believe this one came out almost in the end of the last "big" noisetrend - would be interesing to hear how it would be commented upon if released now?

Yeah, it's a good album!

Actually I think it was released in 1999. And yeah, it was definitely at the tail end of the big "japnoise" hooplah of the 90's. Not that it matters, it just took a few more years to sell all copies.

I didnt take it literally,I was  just being cute. anyways I somehow missed that pitch did say it was all layered sounds so my mistake for thinking there would be quiet moments. quiet bits would have worked well though!

MUSIIKKI VYÖRY cd
I'm quite sure most people might not follow what Ektro does, but mr. Lehtisalo did good job digging up this utmost Finnish obscurity. Recordings from 1980-1981 put out by label who did tapes mostly of Finnish experimental/obscure/homerecording stuff, but also released tape of Maurizio Bianchi. Being early 80's, and liner notes saying editions of distributed copies varied from 10 to 30, this was pretty much mere "legend" what could be only found in some references, but hardly heard or owned by anyone. Now 78 minutes with extensive liner notes. Picks up tracks from various tapes of his. Pre-dates the times of extensive equipment. He didn't even use 4-track. Just recording on tape, and playing it over new layer of sounds to next deck. Biggest effect is simply extensive gain distortion and overall decay of sound. No fancy effects. Sometimes one could be surpriced how close something may get to much much later finnish project a'la Will Over Matter. Of course the intentions and the aesthetic is very different, yet the crude beats, nasty electronics, lo-fi buzz, etc..  Just add the atmosphere of 1980 post-punk teenage angst etc.
If you can handle the most fierce and effect-free home taping inferno, this is the piece to get! Especially for the finns. Couple of these found in Freak Animal distro right now.

Clandestine Blaze - Deliverers of Faith CD (NH) - Ryan previously stated he thought that Church of Atrocity was one of the best black metal albums. I'd have to disagree. For me Deliverers of Faith surpasses CoA. Psychopathia Sexualis and Winter of White Death are my favorite CB songs done. The bleakness in Winter of White Death is unmatched by anything else. There's even a hint of tragedy and despair (without a whiff of cheese). The only song I've never really connected with is Falling but it's still solid.

Jarl - Vertigo Border CD (Autarkeia) - Vertigo Emission was the best Jarl yet but this effortlessly surpassed it. I was honestly surprised by how much this gripped me on first listen. Reminds me a bit of mid-period Autechre (which is always a good thing) but much darker and harder-edged. Perfect night-time listening. So many layers and nuances within the songs. A record to absorb and let penetrate.

V/A - Nihil 2xLP (CMI) - Everyone is on top form except Institut unfortunately. IRM thunder with really synth and bass heavy compositions. Nod weave disturbed fairy tales and I don't even know how to explain Sharon's Last Party's tracks.

Pig Heart Transplant - Accidental Phone Sex (Heavy Psych, 2009) - Probably the most boring PHT I have heard. "Earhammer" is droning and drawn-out a bit too long for me. "Oakland" is a bit better, it follows a pulsating and thick synth line which shrouds some minimal high-end that goes on the background. I doubt I am going to come back to this though.

Caligula031 - Albanian Meat Market (F&V, 2010) - Side "AL" starts out with what sounds like a toy piano or circus music and a barely noticeable wall of static that kind of sounds like rushing water at times, buried vocals. Nothing too amazing. Side "BANIA" is very nice, I love the hushed vocals and that thin swarming sound that looms in the atmosphere with some slight use of feedback piercing its way through. I don't know if this sounds like Wertham since I don't own any Wertham other than comp tracks, but I do know that I thought it was going to be more violent sounding than it was but in the end it worked, everything was applied well and the overall mood is fitting for the topic.

CARLOS GIFFONI "resignation letter" 7"
uk 2006 tour 7". White label single, in samped innerleeve. Nothing to look at, noise sounds like 10 min piece is cut in half and place on sides. It is clean and heavy modular synth noise. No lazers, no sudden bursts, no dirt, no grain.. Just heavy smooth oscillating waves of electronics. Nothing very spectacular, except that you realize that when he does THIS live, with massive PA power, you will get the full body massage from subwoofers. I'm not a big fan of synths. At least that big I'd like listening pure synth sound for too much with very little of other efforts.

GOVERNMENT ALPHA / EVIL MOSTURE split 7"
huh! I must repeat: what a great format 7" is for noise when it's done right! You get small sense, like with tape, that something little happened with sound. Little extra compression. Little extra distortion. Not much, but just enough that it's not the same as for example some later days digital Government Alpha.
Was this pure split or collaboration. I think some collaboration exists. Each side has its own feel, though. I don't know how many minutes exactly goes per side, but song feels like real song. It carries plenty of change. When the end of side is approaching, you get the feel that this is the end of track. Not some abrupt cut, but real end of track. On other side, there is wild lazer noises, sudden quick cuts, grinding loops, multiple layers going strong. Side is shorter and trusts more in edits/composition that full on noise blast. Very nice. ltd 300 and pink vinyl, special hand silkcreened multi color covers.

J/O - Untitled (Sexkrime Arts, 2009) - Nicely done lo-fi Noise. You have a solid mixture of low-end, static hiss, samples and loops all put together in a modest manner, nothing is ever upfront other than the samples (which is the point) and this gives the material over to the extra-musical exploits of the release nicely. "She's In Control Of My Cock And What Is Done To It" begins with a nice long sample and then the noise begins but the track gets cut up by samples and returns with a fresher sound, and each time the sample comes back into play you are suppose to jack off on the cover art (which we are suggested to laminate), as instructed by each sample, "but only when instructed". I have yet to do this but I think this was an original and though-out idea and it doesn't hurt that the sounds are good too.

I remember going through a bunch of those & thnking it was kind of dumb as most of the images were off the internet but occasionally someone would post a photo of his neighbor or sister-in-law. Might've been a few of teenage stepdaughters (fully clothed). Is there ANYTHING online still like the yahoogroups?!? God, it was a goldmine!

You still find plenty of images as well as videos of guys doing it. imagefap for example is good source. I guess also moviefap is one, for the videos. Some funny stuff, like guys cumming over computer screens of images/videos of young females. I guess there must be special audience who prefers to watch those, instead of real deal, so to say.
I think there should be release you can only purchase with such method. You get the photo with tape and with returning it in time, free bonus tape follows.

And playlist:
Andrew Chalk / Christoph Heemann split 7"
pretty good, yet also 100% expected nice textured ambient. No covers, just the 7" with color labels. Few listens later, conclusion is that it was worth to buy, yet perhaps longer playtime would make it better?

Well yea, compared to porno it isn't original at all, but for a piece of "music" I thought it was. And I'm pretty sure it is sold out by now. I've been meaning to review it for a bit.

They still exist just not on Yahoo, but many newsgroups are dedicated solely to this and some IRC channels are too. I can link you in PM to a few. There are 2 fairly new groups that just popped up in the past month with over 300 photos of clearly underage girls pictures getting jizzed on. That is like 10 new photos a day. All of them completely clothed, most are yearbook pictures and crap like that but I did see a set of 3 carefully cropped photos of faces from KX. A completely legal and artsy-fartsy form of r@ygolding. I've wondered if any of those guys read Sotos.

Mutant Ape - Erotic Yorkshire (Ecstatic Peace!, 2009) - This album never gets old, the diversity alone makes for a high mark on the replay value scale. A lot of stuff is thrown around from ambient vibes to thick, rumbling noise tirades that slash through pile-ups of Jamie Gillis samples and powerful vocal nods in no less confrontational a manner than anything these guys have put out up until this point. You really have to listen to this from beginning to end because this type of tLP is probably best taken in one overwhelming "uncut" dose, and Mutant Ape knew it and executed flawlessly. And those are the only words that really do it justice because the enjoyment comes from actually realizing what you're hearing.

Does anyone actually like Bloody Roots after the first 3 or so listens? Slogun has a pretty good discog, I can't deny that, but it doesn't stand the test of time for me.

Piss Horn - The Woodchopper's Balls (Gaping Hole, 2008) - Weird album title. Up until about 5 minutes this is pretty tame and then it begins to build itself, very slowly, into some crumbling low-end and possible junk abuse that sounds like some swings in a playground. Vocals shouted through-out with some heavy effects on them, hard to make out any lyrics. The 10 minutes mark and forward shows the best material; bassy synth pulses lead into fuzzy ruminations trapped uneasily between soft, almost ambient comfort and terror. Overall this is not my favorite Piss Horn (I don't even know if I have a favorite) but it was an entertaining 20 minutes of my life.

JOE & JOE -LP
Old LAFMS LP that was available in London for 15 pounds. And I first hesitated, and actually waited till sunday and then bought it. And no regrets! Great heavily textured and dense droning. Basically there is backbone of synth type drone sound that creates the drone element, and over that is piled layers and layers of great sounds. Very warm and rich. No covers, just LP is thick plastic sleeve.

Tovah D-Day - Unseeing Being (American Tapes) tape
This is exactly the kind of stuff I expect from American Tapes releases! Part meaningless stupidity, part inexplicably satisfying noises from the wasteland of humanity that is America. Nice noisy short-scale drones that thankfully don't drown in the cesspool of their own lo-fidelity. The problem with AT is how hit-and-miss it can be... the V/A: Live & IN DEBT @ Miles Bday Party -tape I got from the same batch was more-or-less useless.

Eric Lunde - Suites for solo analog recorders (traitmediaworks) cd-r
The sounds of tape recorders recording themselves in sound proof boxes. Of course "nothing" happens here but the nothing that does is quite nice. I wish more HNW sounded as interesting as this, a proper study in the textures of sound (and maybe also in the uncertainty of it all?).

Airway / Hijokaidan - Split (Harbinger) LP
The one that was released to celebrate the recent LAFMS event in London. Pretty good but doesn't get me smiling like an idiot the way their sets did at the fest. The Airway side especially suffers from a fairly poor live recording. My powers of imagination can however fill in the blanks in-between and I can actually feel how great it must have sounded live!


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on November 07, 2010, 02:12:18 PM
I thought Airway on the split wasn't as noisy as I was hoping. Hijokaidan was good, but I prefer the studio style, where electronics and furious noise is mixed on top and drums somewhere behind. It was good, but no match to for example latest studio album.

Henry Pierre "Haut-Voltage Coexistence" LP
Pretty good musique concrete. Noisy, sometimes orchestral.

Nyodene D "i have no mouth, yet I must scream" tape
Pretty good and heavy blend of deadly industrial tones and metal junk noises. It sounds more of "well produced", something to lump into company of Vomit Arsonist, Xiphoid Dementia and such american units. Vocals are high pitched yelling, sometimes brings up Militia in my mind. Perhaps the tone & rhythm of vocals remains too similar from track to another. Well made and composed tape.

Pestdemon "Pestdämones hinsiderfärd" tape
A-side is pretty good "traditional" Pestdemon heavy duty punishment, but B-side is a letdown. I guess each tape has something different on B-side? Mine was more of humming of disconnected cable and some crackles etc.

Yes, b-side is individual. I'm surprised if there's any of the 55 b-sides that are actually worth calling "music". Or listenable at all. Have no idea what's on them, the process of creating them is very blurred in my memory... Sounds like you got one of those with less "action". But thanks for the comment on the a-side. That's the part that matters on that release.

Have been listening a lot to the OSCILLATING INNARDS 2tape box, irretrievable: mmii-mmviii. As noted, a retrospective with several OOP tracks throughout his career. Had hardly heard OxIx before seeing the gig in Malmö last weekend, the sounds on the tapes definitely lived up to the heavy power and violence of the live performance. Wide range of sounds as well, not only harsh noise but also more experimental material. 8 page booklet with liner-notes explaining the development, nature of tracks, motivations and anecdotes from the whole history of OxIx, with a surprisingly humble and self-deprecating attitude. Highly recommended if you lack these releases.

I think I'm in agreement with you. I really liked it the first listen but I spend more and more time in between each return visit.

Yeah, I was also surprised by the lack of distortion and noise, it's actually quite straightforward freeform rock action. But shit like that is right up my alley when it's done well. The only real problem for me is the sub-standard recording quality.

Delicate drones, slowed down tape and manipulated field recordings. Beautiful stuff. Feels a bit more subtle then The Breadwinner (2008).
This is also darker, there is a slightly off vibe present... Everyday mundane sounds, skillfully altered, given a new strange quality. I recognize that from some of lambkins earlier output.
One of the best records i've heard this year


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on November 09, 2010, 11:46:26 AM
not sure should it be done at reviews of playlist, but since intent to do short comments, I guess playlist is accurate to comment..

KONTRAST 5x7" box
Toy Bizarre 7" = very nice. It's the artist who have decent releases out, but you never hear anyone mention the name? At some occasions, the blend of relaxing ambient textures bursting into harsher noise makes me think should this be recommended to some who prefer modern days J.Crumer or even such? Is contrast the ongoing musical direction here? Perhaps. It goes from very quiet to loud, from hectic to slow.
MSBR 7" = playful electronics? It has steady backing of warm and playful electronics, and harsh bursts of electronic noise hammered on top. Contrast of volume and sound pressure is hard. It doesn't present MSBR's noise wall. Other side is slowly moving electronic ambient-noise. Which is even less aggressive, yet texturally much more interesting. Length of 7" is great for this. Transitions are done quite often, and many good sounds are happening.
Aube 7" = In the noisy and pretty fierce era of Aube. Some parts of the material ends up in highly distorted electronic damage, while the traditional layered loops and slow modulations of sound are naturally present. Again, I think 7" is favorable format for Aube, since it forces to make compositions more compact. If you'd extend Cleft Tubing to 20 minutes, it would not be the same as it is now in... 5-7 minutes. The climax of the end with roaring bassy loop rising below crude distorted sound works as perfect ending. Possibility to extend moment into 3x longer would have probably ruined it. Flutter Collop starts with high pitched silent test tone type of sound. Vinyl surface noise is pretty extensive when all of sound happens only in the highest of the high frequencies. It takes until 3rd of song is gone, when other things start to happen. Calm yet heavy loops of sound crawl beneath the high pitched sound. It's disturbing song. Very good!
Contagious Orgasm 7" = least noisiest, yet among the best! Highly reverb drenched industrial sounds. No musical form, rather abstract collage of metal screech, loops, voices,.. Knowing this is probably recorded not so distant from C.O. cd on Tesco, it's nearly 100% guarantee of supreme sound!  
Schloss Tegal 7" = continues in quite similar atmosphere as CO, but noisier. Clang of strangely vibrating metals, like flutter of to-be-broken analogue tape. Drenched in reverb with extensive layering. Other side with more distant and abstract humming, with overall similar atmosphere. Probably might have listened sides in wrong order in first place, since this seems like it would be building atmosphere heard on other side, but I guess works well this way too. Massive sound of song slowly increases over the side.

Pestdemon "Pestdämones hinsiderfärd" tape
A-side is pretty good "traditional" Pestdemon heavy duty punishment, but B-side is a letdown. I guess each tape has something different on B-side? Mine was more of humming of disconnected cable and some crackles etc.

My B-side was pretty good actually. Slowed down religious songs with odd drones and crackle sounds. Came of as a sort of cheap down beat Swedish religious version of early Les Joyaux De La Princesse. I prefer the A-side but I will listen to both sides of the tape.

Jarl - Tunnel Vision / Mind Reaper [2xcassette]
Cold and monolithic. This music envelopes the listener, it crushes the listener. The synth work at times is truly menacing, cruel even.

Jarl - Vertigo Border [cd]
Better than Vertigo Emission! Sprawling dark soundscapes. The production values in Jarl's work are downright scary now. Such clean and precise sound. Reminding me at times of Autechre, especially the 3rd track. Constant modulation, tuning, adjusting of sound waves and elements. The compositions are busy in a sense but the evolution is slow.

new bits....

henri chopin/ la plaine des respirs lp  (eerie vox tape music)

cyclobe / wounded galaxies tap at the window lp ( intense deep drug music, the sound pallet from what the album is made from is like no other i have heard)

deflag heemorrhage/haien kontra cd's ( arthouse/whitehouse)

thomas kroner lp (re issues on type cant seem to get these off my deck)

unicazurn/ temporal bends cd (as with cyclobe steven e thrower delivers some fantastic modern electronic/acoustic avant garde)

ahlzagailzehguh/ misinterpereted injury 2 x 7" set ( a little let down by this...seems flat and one dimensional in its sound, however i seem to be looking for more dynamics in noise of late)

In regards to Ahlzagailzehguh - I'd recommend his two LPs on Hospital. I think they're much more dynamic than Misinterpreted Injury. Much more in the Sickness cut-up style. The last LP, Refuse and Control really pulls off sleaze with dynamics. Might be hard to track down though.

I agree completely, but also like Misinterpreted Injury. Also, the Chondritic tape is similar to the newest LP on Hospital. Dude fucks shit up f'realz.

Really getting into Wapstan's "Stoneham", apparently the result of three faulty micro-cassettes playing the same thing, a "slowed down" field recording. No editing or overdubbing, yet for that comes out really well. This and Eric Lunde's "Candyhole" makes me want to get some crappy tape recorders and go outside with them. I like being inspired like that.

Keränen - Bats In The Attic (Pica Disk) cd
Instrumentation is different (vintage synths) than on Tommi's previous releases but the end result is pretty familiar. It's still all about masses of sounds hanging in mid-air, tons of thing happening but not really going anywhere. Again I'm thinking of this as a canvas of sound, like it's missing the time axis altogether but the energy and action are conveyed perfectly all the same. Beauty over depravity which suits me just fine. The first "movement" of the only track is a bit better to my ears but overall it's a very strong album. Good length too, only 35 mins.

Glass Bath - Grey Gardens (Ides) tape
I had no idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Some wallish elements but probably too much happening to call it HNW or whatever. Drones and decaying echoes with very good recording quality and ambiance, maybe that's why I thought about musique concrete for a while. Would need that bit of "something extra" to carry it full-lenght but quite nice as it is.

But right now I'm listening to Springsteen's Darkness on the Edge of Town and thinking that I really should get that new Promise album with shitload of unreleased songs from the same sessions...

Graham Lambkin & Jason Lescalleet - The Breadwinner
Probably one of my favourite albums right now. Only part that gets to me is the snoring (but the fact that they push it almost the point of wanting to skip to the next track, and just then it's finally over is something I actually like about it)

Keränen - Bats In The Attic (Pica Disk) cd
 The first "movement" of the only track is a bit better to my ears but overall it's a very strong album. Good length too, only 35 mins.

I though I wrote about it somewhere, but seems like didn't...
I think it starts very strong. Then comes the few minutes moment when the stillness hits. Not like it would drone or anything, but the "zzzooing zoing zoing" type of star wars battle, perhaps more the square wave short tööttäilyt, that sounds more playful than intense. But maybe that would be exact sonic metaphor for "bats in the attic"! But as soon as disc gets over that, and moves back to intense noise, I must say this must be among the healthiest and most interesting recordings done with synth in recent times!
No the muddy bass beard-drone. Not the semi-kraut-wannabe psychedelia. No torments on one key/tone throbbing, but extremely rich texture of sounds. Even when he uses synths, you couldn't compare with with CCCC, Hive Mind or whoever. Perhaps more of Incapacitants in era of Ministry of Foolishness. It is so dense, that it becomes a mass. It is such a textured, it ain't the "wall". It is so hi-fi and sharp, it isn't muddy and dark. It is noisy and fierce, though.
That few minutes goofin' around is good as transition, to let the remaining disc proceed with proper synth annihilation.

I feel like I'm too often praising what my friends do, but I do have a plenty to compare it with. And it sounds relatively unique - as much as you can do in field of synth noise anyways!

Black Air "Paris" LP
While listening to A-side, I was like.... pffff... what the fuck? Can it be more predictable? Can it be more similar what these guys have done? It's such a trademark sound of wall of noise crackles and bassy rumbling, there is exactly 0% of any sort of surprise. And also the sound itself is pretty uninteresting. Flipping to B-side, and it seems like now, it's getting somewhere. Starts with thin crackling noises and soon hits in heavy duty bassy rumbles. In theory, it ain't much different, but what they create here, starts to get obscure harmony and even tonality. While track slowly hammers forward, at some point it starts to remind something like Shift or Silence of Vacuum, where the "wall" if often formed with tonal undercurrent. It suddenly makes the stream of disharmonic crackle and crunch take form in key and harmony. It isn't ambient, nor at all aggressive noise, but has another dimension to play with. A-side I felt like that's that, but b-side I returned for replay and it is something that I found pretty successful, in all its simplicity.

Bastard Noise - A Culture of Monsters has been on frequent rotation lately.

I didn't enjoy it at first, mostly because I think the original Cyclops versions of "Pincer's Movement" and "Me and Hitler" are much superior, but I'm coming around to it.

Haare "Madon Evankeliumi" CD (At War With False Noise)
Two long tracks of slow, oppressive, utter darkness. As usual, with Haare's stuff, it becomes more and more nightmarish, the farther into the tracks you get. Not that noisy, but not clean either. The sounds are low-key, somewhat muted, but grating and slowly tearing at your senses. A great release!

Upon release from Court today I finally got to listen to...

Grain Belt - Grain Belt (White Centipede,Phage Tapes,Small Doses 2010) - This project consists of a group of Noise artists from the states; Baculum, Willful and Wince. I must admit I know very little about Willful and only own one Baculum CDr, but Wince was one of the best projects I had the pleasure of discovering this year. I'm pretty sure every track is live. For the most part this is an unceasing sea of rough Noise with tons of development happening all around. And even though everything seems disassembled and isolated, somehow, every sound on each track flows naturally. Metal abuse is obviously the main culprit, along with a good dose of feedback, crunch and nicely positioned effects. A really intense, distinct sound that these guys collaborated to create. There is definitely a ton of character in this.

JOHN WIESE & C SPENCER YEH 7"
Von Editions
lap top and violin? So what can come out of that. In this case, good stuff. 7" feels little short, and even after couple of spins, memories are pretty vague what exactly did happen, yet overall feeling that it was good.

ULTRADEATH "condenced death" 7"
Von Editions
one side wall of noise, crunchy, heavy, distorted. One side lowed down noise/voices. OK, yet on the noise side so standard.

ASAKKU 7"
Melodic average ug black metal on Sombre. But that being recorded in mid 90's with pretty raw sound makes it work. Didn't hesitate a bit about getting this now. even if Sombre did plenty of crappy and barely ok releases, label still had certain wibe unlike a lot of others.

STRID 7"
Had bootlegs on vinyl and CD, but when opportunity to score original 7" came, why not. Norwegian bm from 90's, which has plenty of originality. Times before endless amount of Burzum copycats (if they ever existed in such a mass...) and especially before the wave of suicidal & depressive bm. Slow/midpaced with extremely simple guitar work, but few drumming patterns, few synths and most of all the constant bass melody/bass riff noodling what builds the frame to both songs is what sets Strid beyond anyone else. One could play this over and over again, and at the same time it feels so easy and simple, but also capturing and with substance.

S.T.A.B. Electronics - Temple of Self-Disgust tape
A-side is alright, B-side is much much better, the last song kinda falls out thought.

Terg/Squamata - The Walls Close In tape
Terg side is the great rumble, not so much variation but really powerful noise. Squamata delivers, in your face junk noise with nice bursts of feedback.

STROM.ec - Heartbreaking Love From God CDr
Two tracks, title track has strong vocals (as usually) and good lyrics. Wavy, rhytmic background. The typical goods STROM.ec gives. Perhaps the next full lenght could have more powerful rallies like this one.

Sick Seed - Beasts Among Men
After digging up my old stereo set mainframe from basement my tape listening experience has gone million times better. No more that old ghettoblaster fuzz. And this gains from it insanely, A side has screeching and grinding tracks with vocals, but B side is marvelous. Trash barrel ritual from hell, best listened to at loud volume with a couple of beers.

Project of Yellow Tears and Halflings member Ryan Woodhall. Anyone into either bands should make a point of finding this release. Sound wise, very close to halflings more seething moments mixed with fierce and bombastic drumming. This is what more American PE should sound like.

PAIN JERK "Brutalica" tape
5 shorter songs, some are amazing, some remain behind the high standards of Pain Jerk. I feel that B-side perhaps obliterates better? Brutalica offers the more cut-up approach, where sounds abruptly change from one to another, which is very well done, but after all I do prefer:

PAIN JERK "Loud Acoustics For Nude Mobile" tape
2 long tracks. A-side being utmost killer harsh noise in the finest tradition of early 90's Japanese pedal orgy. Fierce Merzbow'ish wah-wah sweeps, heavy duty bass rumbles, crispy high end. Sounds moves relatively quick pace, yet not really cut & paste method, but natural flow like live set. B-side seems little less heavy, more quick loops, bubbling filtter sounds, etc. It offers less brutality but no less of sonic substance in general.

Haven't listened these tapes for years, and it reminds how vital would be re-visiting good noise releases more frequently!

Which leads to:
HANDS TO "sfo" CD
which I didn't care for much when it originally came out. From this Zabriskie Point label, I originally liked only Incapacitants and S*Core releases, but later on realized the genious qualities of many of them. Including this. The master of utterly decayed walkman field recordings layers and edited crudely into beautiful sound art!

IANNIS XENAKIS "Col legno" CD
Modern classical. I think best moments happen sometime in latter parts of the album. Massive 74+ minute ballet must be fierce experience for someone who'd expect swan lake or something. Dis/harmonic orchestral textures beyond the "usual" approach.

JOHN DUNCAN / ZEITKRATZER "Fresh" CD
10 people in orchestra, with sax, trumpet, tuba, violin, cello, double bass, piano, according, percussion and sound/electronics. And the result is? Perhaps one could file this under some sort of "dark ambient" meets contemporary classical? It is not nowhere as "classical" as Xenakis above, and compositions rely more in pretty easy solutions as opposed to hectic skillful pseudo-chaos. This is more about harmony and relaxing quietness.

Goatmoon/Dead Reptile Shrine-Winterforest

Maybe I had way too huge expectations for this split, but after few listens Goatmoon side seems to be a bit of a dissapointment for me, both metal songs being a bit too folky for my tastes, but I think it'll grow on me after a few more listens and after I've read the lyrics, which are by Devamitra, if I've understood correctly.

Dead Reptile Shrine on the other hand delivers maybe their best songs here, atleast from what I've heard of them. Not metal at all, maybe some kind of ritual music? Acoustic guitars, buzzing soundscapes, clear vocals, great stuff.

Also the presentation of the LP is top notch, very nice looking gatefold cover, I just wish there would be DRS lyrics included.

Goatmoon-Death Before Dishonour digiCD

Although already owning the vinyl and tape versions of this album, I just had to get this digiCD too, DBDH being one of my favorite BM albums of all time. Great soundscape, great songs, great looking dig.

Also at work I've mostly been listening to various Ride for Revenge releases and the ever so great Satanic warmaster/Clandestine Blaze collab split.

Also I need to mention Kärsimysnäytelmä! CD, absolutely great black metal/noise filth, tracks Maria Magdaleena Puhuu and Öljymäellä always make me smile while working, hopefully they'll release another theme album for some other christian holiday.

Brethren - The Chosen (10", Freak Animal): just had a first listen, sounded good, but it seems I like the Kingdom Coming 7" better.

The Vomit Arsonist - Birth Recovery (3"CDr, L.White Records): Sounded like typical Vomit Arsonist style, really liked it.

Halthan - Collapse in Progress (3"CDr, L.White Records): Should listen to it again, didn't give it my full attention, but style seems similar to the Corrupt tape, although a bit harsher.

Goatmoon/DRS split LP, indeed DRS side dominates. I like the atmosphere of GM, which reminds me of the glory days of Polish pagan/bm. Where intros/outros and folky riffs takes most of the demo tape while actual "metal" remains only small fraction. Out-of-tempo, clumsy result adds to the atmosphere. DRS is experimental dark sound. Something which I consider far far beyond all the "black noise" and "dark ambient". It has no metal in it at all, but neither it fits to any other category.

Shallow Waters -first tape??
For whatever reason, this tape had been laying on my cellar floor for like 4 years. No real reason why, and no idea how it got there. Been just moving it around, but not actually taken it where it belongs, until now. And C-10 is quick to give listen. One guy with electronics, one guy vocals. 1st side is little bit weak, but things improve by the end of b-side. One could think of Slogun, Brethren and such american acts, where lyrics are the key focus. Shallow Waters remains behind those acts with lacking the sheer violence of Slogun and more complex & original solutions of Brethren. Noise is relatively well done, but the clean shouted voice going through Crass type of endless lyrics, start to lose its impact when approach is nothing but shouting.  It's decent tape, but also would make one wonder, is there is such a strong message intended to deliver, why vocal approach is more of the crust-punk and less of and political speech? One should take a look into politics of the past, where good spokesmen could lift the speech into utmost rage even without backing noise.

Shikaky "ribald" tape
New japanese noise?! Hmm, always curious to hear. Is this C-20 or something? Guts of Love is much more noisier while Malfunction Orchestra on b-side relies on experimental approach. It's good to hear something that isn't exactly the most "trad" jap noise what one could think of, but most certainly wouldn't be out of place if it was released on 90's Vanilla Records, Endorphine Factory or such labels. No heavy noise brutality but a band to keep eye on!  Not to mention this is put out by Shit-eye cassettes, so can it go wrong? Limited 66.

Atheist "jupiter" CD
my teenage years heroes of progressive ultra technical... thrash? They promised no comeback recording will be done. I went to see them play c. 2 years ago in their tour and it was very good. And this album? I'd say it is.. good. Its better than Elements, but most certainly can't match the superiority of Unquestionable Presence. Modern day production values are usually doomed to fail, but in case of Atheist they can make it work. I do miss the REAL drum sound of days when metal sounded metal, yet in general it is quite acceptable production. Listened in handful of times and yet to really capture feeling of "album". More like barely over 30 minutes of songs put together.

Swans new LP
I was quite surprised how good it was. It's not heavy and it's not such a crushing and dark as Swans at their best. But can you expect them to re-create their most "legendary" times? It seems more honest that they actually do something else than the most classic moments. I have yet fully digest what this album is about, but lets give it few more spins...

I'll take it off your hands if you don't want it.  I feel like this is one of my favorite PE acts.  I haven't heard this tape, but I really like most of the songs.  There's this massive noisy rumble, and every so often a melody starts to sneak through. I like the vocals, although sometimes the vocal aspect becomes long winded.  It's simple, but good.   tapes 2/4/5 are my favorites.

DEATH IN JUNE "Peaceful snow" 2X10" (NER)

So Douglas finally decided to lay the guitar to rest and go for...piano instead? Of course not himself playing, so final result is Douglas singing (or in reality most often more "talking") and one Miro Snejdr to do piano interpretations of Douglas songs (first written on guitar?). Snejdr's playing is perhaps more diverse and "free" than, say, C93's "Soft Black Stars" album but it also gets a bit tiring after a while. One might wonder if Douglas' men now is VERY old and only enjoys these kind of loungy tracks, so if he wants something up his ass, better write tunes like these.... I was quite amazed how "uplifting" these bits are, not really dark at all. One some of the tracks the nature of the recordings with vocals probably recorded afterwards does not work so well, while others actually does work. Overall an OK album - I will probably see myself putting this on several times this winter. Interesting to see how the last albums have been overwhelmed with photographs of himself wearing the mask, and therefore manifesting the role of the mask as a "logotype" - something I don't think he intended from the start.

Been on the ride to catch up with A LOT of tape releases that happened already while ago, but been buried in shelves for reason or another. Lets comment some of them...

SHARPWAIST "the night of and the morning after" tape
Nil By Mouth
Pretty strong new wave of PE from USA. Loud, distorted, pretty straight forwards even if attention is given to noises. Vocals are up front and distorted. It feels pretty good, but with short tape like this, yet to really show do they have enough talent. Decent tape, nevertheless!

CHERRY POINT "Smog City" tape
Harsh Head Rituals
This is crushing and heavy. Fucking brutal and merciless. It's basically what is best in loud noise wall. Two guys slowly modulate their sounds, all the time with highest energy and highest level of noise. It's nothing new for C.P. or genre in general, but this C-20.. or C-30 goes down so smooth in your ears it's a jackpot.

SEWER ELECTION / WEREWOLF JERUSALEM collaboration tape
Trash Ritual
Huh... I could say exact opposite what above. This is like heinous crime towards noise! 30 minutes is such a dull listening experience, one wonders how it can be? Werewolf Jerusalem at its best, is obviously one of leading names of the genre. Sewer Election has only few misses among strong line of hits. But THIS? What the fuck is this? A-side titled singular is like test how far joke can go. stupid crackling one dimensional noise that sounds simply bad. On the beginning on B-side, called Linear, you feel yeah, it is probably a concept music, and indeed little improvement with sound, but soon to be watered down to utmost failure. It's hard to even imagine how to be able to make so lame noise, so I guess it must be intentional. Not looking good either.

OVMN "III" tape
Mother Savage
It can't match the power of the absolute undisputed classic debut OVMN tape. A-side suffers from dull distortion, that works on similar badly crackling and utmost overdriven sound, where every sound is distorted into powerless numbness. It doesn't explode into loud noise. Tape improves little by little and when you reach perhaps 45 minutes time (half way b-side), it gets close to what Mother Savage crew is known for. Still not to be raised among the classics.

RU-486 "Princess of Rot" tape
Destructive Industries
2nd release of the label, and pretty early on discography of the band. I guess this C-10 was re-issued too? Since mine is ltd 25 copies and I think its been available quite recently? Prurient comes to my mind instantly. Being C-10 and being feedback drenched shouting/screaming vocals with some drum blasting on back. Perhaps the Black Vase era?  RU-486 did also all the distorted melodic keyboard things Prurient is known for, but little by little band has started to take shape, building some of its own form beyond obvious follower of big names? This is big improvement for very earliest releases, but still way behind what they have recently done. One would hope bands wouldn't rush so quick to do releases if they progression happens as fast as this.

PARANOID TIME "Pregnant Nun" tape
Harsh Head Rituals
Loud, energic, brutal and fast. Sounds like pretty simple sources and easy pedal solutions, but in all its simplicity, it works. It's not as total hammer-in-the-face as Cherry point, but they can deliver. I like this much more than the recent "tape, metal & glass" which was quite dull in sounds and way it was put together.

hah! don't remember reading / hearing any positive comments about this tape. i was listening to this with a friend and he refused to believe that this is actually the sound intended by SE & WJ, he thought the tape must be corrupt or something. well, i actually like it a lot! there's just something in that dull crackle that tickles my nerves the right way. it's definitely stupid and one dimensional noise. a joke? maybe to an extent. there's a "fuck you" attitude to this tape (my own assumption, of course), a bit like with Kasettemusik - which too raised a lot of negative response when released and which i also like.

BURNING STAR CORE / PRURIENT "ghosts of Niagara" 10xtape box
Hospital
I know whole deal about this 10x 10mins tape for 100$ seemed little dubious, but it was most of all benefit of Hospital shop being able to keep going in very difficult situation. I guess many who criticized without hearing or seeing it, expected exaggerated price over too little of substance for quick cash? Luckily one can say that in fact, this box offers perhaps more value for the money than many other items in the bands discographies. In this case, I could say that C-10 is clearly a benefit for the material. You don't get some yawning long tracks or whatever random cheap collaborations, but whole package seems very well planned and even better executed.
Huge vinyl case designed to house 10 tapes (in c. 10" x 10" size), full color covers, full color collage booklet, each tape individually labeled. Each tape with two tracks which sound as they indeed were recorded intentionally to be this. Not just random cuts of some longer piece, but actual songs which all differ from each other. You can hear plenty of "usual" trademark sounds & methods of the projects from this era (c. 3 years ago), but I have this gut feeling that how come once again some small edition limited tape is more inspiring and refreshing than some bigger edition CD/vinyl releases? Melodic keyboards, spoken vocals, emotional screams, noisy drones, harsh loops and metal clatter, all the "usual" elements build 20 tracks which stand strong and one could think 10x7" box would perhaps made good re-issue, unless wanting to make it tolerable cost in double CD.

well, i actually like it a lot! there's just something in that dull crackle that tickles my nerves the right way. it's definitely stupid and one dimensional noise. a joke? maybe to an extent. there's a "fuck you" attitude to this tape (my own assumption, of course), a bit like with Kasettemusik - which too raised a lot of negative response when released and which i also like.

Then I could recommend you also:
THE RITA "predators" 7"
Second Layer
Latest The Rita 7". I liked previous one quite a lot, but this, this is just a simple and straight forward "crackle study", "noise object", or whatever harsh noise experts call it. One dimensional dull crackles, not noisy, not harsh, not dense, not loud. Mere mid range slow crackles of sound you can't really identify what it may have originally been. I recall when someone said, Roemer of Macronympha was the last true legend in noise. Maybe to some extent, but, I'd say Sam has almost alone guided harsh noise to such a personal and die hard routes, perhaps the time of true legends isn't over. Regardless how I feel about this particular recording.

SEWER GODDESS "verdigris" 7"
Perhaps even less "PE" than 12" and more into cinematic death industrial. One of the sides starts to sound to me close to soundtrack of sci-fi/horror movie, while other side still has little elements of oscillating synth waves connecting it with "pe". Heavily processed vocals, thick and dense dark tones, reverb drenched colossal rhythm loops...

SONNE HAGAL "Läuthner 2a" 7"
Luftschulz
After I had listened that new Der Blutharsch split 7", not only DB was pretty lame, but that other band was like lazy Neurosis type of band. Nothing experimental, nothing industrial or related. Just mid paced aggro vocal whatever...  Though, I rather cleanse my ears with some pure neo folk then! And that's what Sonne Hagal delivers. Nothing more, nothing less. It's predictable, easylistening, harmless,....  Basically something I'd say I both can admire in some occasions, and can hate in other. I do miss the slightest traces of personality and difference. I miss the apocalyptic post-industrial connection and charismatic performers doing songs. I do listen Sonne Hagal rather than Of the Wand And The Moon for example.

Taskmaster "Kriemhild Anal Saxon" tape
Harsh HEad Rituals
HHR is one of those label, which to me, has been pretty much the culmination of good things in harsh noise. Unlike just about all the other labels focusing on doing a lot of harsh noise, this label is pretty much 100% guaranteed satisfaction. It's not like only 1 out of 3 (or less) would be good, but pretty much all of them. Is there something new in this? Of course not, but the heaviness of crunchy harsh noise is such a bliss, it simply captures your senses by this very straight forward primal offering!

Treriksröset / Sewer Election "rågsved" tape

Thorax Harsh Cassettes
Another collaboration of these guys, done in live recording. I guess... c-40? Something like that. It is basically what you expect. After Taskmaster tape, it felt like these guys didn't build as heavy low end rumble, but it is also the advantage. Even if starting loud and fast paced noise chaos without any hesitation or holding back, there is still room to move both high end and low end, to build this massive set somewhere. And that's exactly what happens. I think the best moments are probably close to the end, when set is about to react the climax and little by little is "sharpened" and intensified, making you think can it still be punched up a notch? And will they do it on low end or even crispier high end?

A.M.B. "Implosions" tape
Zikachudoku Self-released tape from 1995. A-side has "self scission" and B-side "self explosion", "self expansion" and "self abrasion". Underlined: All instruments as my cock! One of those bands from Japan which has remained pretty small and unknown and I guess also relatively hard to find? I do have pretty decent amount of old AMB tapes, and amount they get listened, isn't perhaps enough. A-side of tape is focused on high pitched synth oscillations and lo-fi mid-low rumbles. It's ok, but nothing special. Flip on the b-side discards most of synths and we're experiencing hands-on (or cock?!) metal junk/pedals etc what Japanese know well. It is not like AMB is re-inventing the wheel, BUT, he doesn't spill the beans immediately, but there are great moments when you have been listening loud and fierce noise for a while, and suddenly low, wider stereo sound bass rumble hits in. It's like the kick what is missing from majority of noise today, when all is maximum at all the time. Despite AMB isn't perfect. It perhaps doesn't belong to the hall-of-fame of Japanese noise, but this mid 90's original noise cruncher has lesson or two to show contemporary artists!
Just one question: Anyone else have this tape? HOW lo-fi it is meant to be? Is my ferric tape already decayed or maybe even little failed dub? I feel that there is occasional lurking high-end crisp what almost hits in. I mean, in style of Pain Jerk or such. Now, whole tape is somewhat blurred and without the very highest crispy clarity. Not that it would hurt the tape. Not at all. Just curious.

and perhaps should also say, new Ex.Order.. been on playlist and I'm still little half&half what exactly to say about it. And what dominated yesterday on the playlist was Type O Negative debut CD. I was considering selling away the last remaining ToN in my cd shelves, but then got stuck listening most of the day that same CD. "Unsuccessfully Coping With The Natural Beauty Of Infidelity" is such a epic journey of stinky cum breath, cheating whores and slutty ex girlfriends that one can admire it as much as Carnivore albums!

Haven't heard this particular release, or really what THE RITA has been up to lately at all, but this description reminds of what type of sound he was exploring when witnessing him in Copenhagen some week ago. But in the live setting, the actually pretty clear and crisp crackles came out at such a massive volume, that it became physical, like standing too close to massive fireworks or sth similar. Perhaps not very interesting on tape/vinyl, but on stage, it was... massive.

np: FURZE - reaper subconscious guide, MK9 - Resist 3" (I think that is the title at least)

No comments. But it's kind of hand made look in it. Basically printed stuff, but not double sided J-card, but info text is glued on other size. Tape has labels.
It's ZIKA12-950701.. I guess all those tapes (12+?) are AMB's or also other projects?

Perispirit "abysmal penetrations" tape
Hospital productions
Huh! When I saw the tape cover, I thought this must be something good. Still, filed it to tape shelves for about... half year? Well, of course nothing gets old this quick, but until now, it remained one of those projects, I wouldn't have cared to even check out because never heard anyone mention it, but I guess the new split LP goes immediately amongst to-be-purchased!
So how it is? If you say guitar/synth & laptop, it will sound like some awful thing, but side a of this tape is actually up their myspace. http://www.myspace.com/perispirit
So check out yourself (Obsolete Weather...). They list among their influences P16.D4, MB, Runzelstirn and Gurglestock, Mirror, Hands To, Maconympha, Bernard Parmegiani, Kevin Drumm, Xenakis, Suddent Infant, Eliane Radigue, Nurse with Wound, The Haters, Phil Niblock, Morton Feldman, Jason Lescaleet, New Blockaders, Pain Jerk, and Crawl Unit. It seems quite rare mix of influences, and they do live up to expectations! This is exactly the kind of stuff I feel has been kind of missing thing among contemporary noise. It boldly mixes harsh noise to brilliant cut-ups, drones, field recordings, guitars, and so on. I find it nearly shame that this was just a tape. And Hospital tape. I feel there is kind of danger it will be picked up by merchant vultures to stash for potential ebay auctions? Or just something other than people who'd give it really proper listening? Yet who am I to blame since I got it simply due being Hospital release!
One must give credit for Hospital for improving the tape releases. Good sound. Nice simple packaging. So who's doing them on LP or CD? It would be something that really would seem worth to do.

Steel Hook Prostheses - Torturous Anxiety (CDr, L.White Records): Typical Steel Hook Prostheses style of Dark Ambient, Death Industrial mix with strongly effected vocals. Only bad thing is the cover, which I think is rather ugly.

Con-Dom/The Grey Wolves - Many Are Called, But Few Get Up (12" 45rpm, Power and steel): Sounds to me closer to typical The Grey Wolves stuff, than what I have already heard of Con-Dom. No bad thing though, short, but nice LP.

Hal Hutchinson - taste of iron (tape, Freak Animal): Metal bashing, nothing else. Hadn't heard anything like this before (I mean only the metal bashing without any form of distortion/noise). Sounds well made, good stuff for sure, but I think it's not too bad it's a short tape.

Disgust - Time Ruins Everything
This feels way, way too short. The tracks on their MySpace are insane and yet on this disc I feel like I want more. Still one of my favourite acts right now, though, out of any genre, not just noise/PE.

Coil - Scatology (2001 remaster/extra tracks)
First listen of Coil. Definitely enjoyed it. Gave a pretty pacifying mood.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: Ashmonger on December 02, 2010, 11:21:50 AM
Pain Nail - end times (CD, Freak Animal): Not too familiar with many industrial acts, but I like this stuff. It does sound like a desolated industry, still working. Like the vocals and the fact that there's quite some variation between the tracks, I was surprised by some of the calmer tracks, one of them actually sounded more like dark ambient.

Atrax Morgue - Death Machinery II (3"CDr, L.White Records): Don't know much stuff from Atrax Morgue, so can't compare to his other works. One thing which is certain is that it's really sick stuff, however, the tracks are monotonous and apart from the coming to front and going away of the sound not much seems to happen. Think it'll need some time to sink.

Silent Abuse/Antichildleague (7" 45rpm, Hagshadow): Great hysterical vocals on the A-side, but I do like the noise from the B-side a bit better, it's a heavier track. All in all, worthy purchase and I'm interested in what other stuff Silent Abuse will still do.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: Ashmonger on December 02, 2010, 08:10:47 PM
Death Squad - Fucked in the USA (3"CD, Freak Animal): First thing I hear from Death Squad, definitely no bad thing. Starts with rather low/mid range rumbling and spoken voices (sounds like samples) and gets more heavy towards the end, with rather typical screaming/shouting vocals and some hysterical female vocals, which I like, though I'm not certain whether they're original or sampled. Different parts sound as if they could be different songs though. Strange thing is, up to now every time I listen to it, I've got the feeling that afterwards I've only got a vague idea of what happened. Not a bad thing, though, it's good enough to play it again.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on December 02, 2010, 09:13:03 PM
expected is re-issues of a lot of Death Squad tape on CD by Autarkeia. It would be nice to have Theological Genocide on LP. Band did CDR re-issue of it (possibly for currently ongoing euro tour?). Covers are from 1st CD edition, but disc CDR.

Now perhaps should comments the big german names?

GENOCIDE ORGAN "archive I" 10"
Tesco
Celebrated their anniversary. Band digged up old recordings, dating to 80's and early 90's. Mostly material meant to be somewhere, but didn't. With first listen, A-side appears to be very vintage industrial sound, but every spin it somehow grows to be better and better. B-side has two tracks with one being leftover from Dry Lungs compilation from '91, which is perhaps most "standard" song in 10", yet still remains my favorite. 2nd track is merely short cut of longer piece before it fades out. I'd be more curious to hear the full length version than c. 1-2 minute sample. first 10" felt like it couldn't match the power of albums, yet realizing the context of release and accepting the nature of early releases, it is good release.

HAUS ARAFNA "you" LP
Galakt Horrö
New album is perhaps even more to direction of "negative pop" or whatever they call it, than Butterfly?! I'm nearly shocked how tiny is the portion of actual hard industrial elements. There is plenty of distorted beats, analogue drum machine beats, melody of distorted vintage synths, most often mr. Arafna singing with clear voice. I'm sure these are hits in the German gothic dance floors, but it's merely one fourth of album - if that - which appeals to tastes of those who expect something what reminds of earlier days of project. HA is most definitely always worked with their own range of sounds and starting from first beats and first synth tones you know what label and which project it is. Have given in couple spins and yet unsure should I say it is good or is this giving my little finger to the gothic devil!

Disgust - Time Ruins Everything
This feels way, way too short. The tracks on their MySpace are insane and yet on this disc I feel like I want more. Still one of my favourite acts right now, though, out of any genre, not just noise/PE.


I thought the length of each track worked well for this style and approach, with the whole "Power Violence" in the form of PE / Man is the Bastard / Bastard Noise influence. The first track has a fairly simple design and pattern that if you seen it "on paper" you would probably think "meh that isn't going to be special", but they pulled it off and it sounds incredible. It flows, it's perfectly arranged and maneuvered that its short 4 minute life span comes out of the speakers as a completely unforgettable romp that I don't think anyone else would have pulled it off quite the same. I could listen to just that first track over and over (and I have). The thing that is even better about this little CD is that each track can still hold its own weight next to it. To me the whole thing is an A+ piece of work. But I understand you about wanting more. Of course, like anyone else who likes them, I wish for more material and I'm hoping they do more than just a 3'' next time. I've always said that Disgust is P.E. that you can mosh to, or even blast in your car without getting too many funny looks.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST

Various Artists - Juche (CD, DPRK): Compilation featuring Turbund Sturmwerk, Operation Cleansweep, Con-Dom, Genocide Organ, Militia, Ex.Order, The Grey Wolves and Anenzephalia. Very interesting compilation, with a concept (Democratic People's Republic of Korea, of which I don't know too much, to be honest). Worthwhile in general, after I first listen I mostly liked the tracks of Con-Dom, Genocide Organ and The Grey Wolves. Glad I still could get it, as it's strictly limited (to 15.000.000 copies).

Con-Dom/ANTIchildLEAGUE - Free Speech Series (3"CDr in glass frame, L.White Records): Really like this CD, very good. To me it sounds more like Death Industrial than straight Power Electronics (though I'm far from being an expert). Great vocals as well.

Mania - Ultra-Negative (CD, Freak Animal): Good noise! Don't really know what to say about this, except that in one of the first two songs sounds a bit too high too me, not because it might hurt or something, but it's so high it sounds a bit powerless to me (only this sound, that is). Seems like my only comment about this disc though.

Sick Seed - Beasts Among Men (tape, Freak Animal): A-side: recognizable Sick Seed stuff, though different from the LP. Noise, guitar, recognizable voice, metal (and other?) junk. Side was over before I knew it, which, in this case, definitely is a good sign. B-side: metal junk with some guitar, vocals and electronics, mainly in the beginning, but just very little. Same as for the Hal Hutchinson stuff, I do like the use of junk metal and stuff, but on its own, it doesn't go for too long. It's good for about 20 mins or so, but I can't really imagine that I would like to junk metal and nothing else for more than half an hour.

Umpio meets Anal Barbara (Nekorekords 2010)

I am not sure if one could call Umpio meets Anal Barbara a collaboration record. The source sounds of the tape comes from noisecore band Anal Barbara's previously unreleased recording, over which Umpio delivers his metal junk and feedback noise. In overall sound, Umpio is way more dominant. Actually the tape differs only little from "normal" harsh noise - just to hear some noisecore band when the noise gets more silent doesn't give that more of originality. Nevertheless, this is a good tape. Compared to two Umpio cds that came out previously this year, Umpio meets Anal Barbara is even more hectic (perhaps this is because of the source material) but also less sharp. At some times it gets even blurry.

-
Also some 20 different ep's and splits from mincecore act Agathocles. Perhaps half of them are - as usual for a band making a lots of records, mostly lofi stuff - fairy shitty, but I got them for really moderate price. Some 7"s such as Distrust and Abuse are really noisy, nothing louder than anything else -type of mixing, sounding like lenghty pieces of sound instead of songs. Meanwhile others are merely boring, punkish grind with nice and neat sound not even raw enough to disturb anyone.

going through some of my records I haven't heard in a while...

Enema Syringe - Live At No Fun Fest 2007 (LP)
I have to be honest, this LP makes me want to boogie. The persistent groove could get anyone's foot tapping. The music sounds firmly rooted in the '80s to me but in a good way. I really enjoy the last track especially with it's low pulsing synth.

Emaciator - Coveting (LP)
One of most successful Emaciator records in my opinion. Sparse guitar drone but not in the style of Andrew Chalk or Hakobune, much more bare, almost nauseating at times. It's very tense despite of or in fact due to the minimalism.

Aaron Dilloway - Concealed (LP)
The best from Dilloway. LSD committed to vinyl.

Red Snapper - Our Aim Is To Satisfy Red Snapper (2xLP)
I forgot I even owned this album, picked it up second-hand in Japan 6 or 7 years ago. Kind of a mess of styles. Trip-hop, acid jazz, instrumental rock. This isn't noise or anything. Some of it's rubbish but the instrumental tracks are pretty enjoyable.

Neuntöter Der Plage - Breathe This Sickly Breath (CDr, Slaughter Productions): For one reason or another, I thought this would be harsh noise. But no, it's Death Industrial/Ambient, and I really like it. Sounds like some other acts, I've heard before, but the only one I can think of right now is Gräuen Pestanz. Anyway, although I like this CD in general, there are some tracks which I like less, such as Immortalis and The Trick, they seem a bit lighter and less disease-ridden.

Ugh, that album was a big disappointment. What in the hell happened? All the previous stuff had this wild-eyed intensity and fire, but then they release a debut album with plodding and yawn-inducing tracks. Hopefully they come out with a new album that returns to the earlier sound and fury, but if not I always have the Presence 12" and Mdłości 7"

Marching Church, At Night, CS (Posh Isolation)
First heard MC on the Grå Fraktion L- compilation from Posh Isolation and I thought it was great, so I was really excited about this tape.
At first listen I wasn't sure what to think but after a while I was hooked, now I play it over and over. Reminds of Circle Of Ouroborus in some ways but more post-punkish.

Yeah, there is quite a few people that prefer Presence instead of Groza. Groza was my first introduction to the band, though, and I really enjoy it. It´s not groundbreaking, but the overall feeling is great in my opinion. For some reason, I still listen to Groza more than I use to listen to Presence.

By the way, today was "Martin Bladh´s Day" here: IRM "Oedipus Dethroned" (all time fave) / "Four Studies For Crucifixion" / "Order" + SKIN AREA "Journal Noir".

It's a great tape. Did you get the actual cassette or the download from my blog (FuneralStench)? I personally feel that the rip is more ominous and dirtier, but in either case it is still one of the best "post-punk" styled album I have heard in quite while. I hear a little CoO and evn some earlier Nuit Noire, but this is not Black Metal. Like everyone else I hear Joy Division using a 4-track and with a pasr in Noiwe, with the vitriolic loathing of Brainbombs, and hell, I even hear a slower Raspberry Bulbs with a crooning, suicidal singer. I haven't heard many bands like this and, personally, I think their formula will take them far through hypocritical, lame, "holier-than-thou" scene they are working in. LP please!

Steel Hook Prostheses - exploring the outer lesion (CD, Clinical Records): compilation of compilation and older tracks. Throughout this CD, I got the idea, that the SHP work all sounds very homogenous. In this case, I think that's a good fact, since I really like their style.

Sewer Goddess (LP, Baseborn Records): Double single sided LP. More straight on on this LP, not too many vocals either, which is a bit a pity, since I like her processed, sickly vocals. Good stuff, but not her best release, it seems to me.

Grey Wolves - Judgement (CD, Hospital Productions): Sounds a bit different from the Grey Wolves stuff I've heard before (such as the Punishment album). Less threatening and oppressing. Don't really know what to think of it after a first listen.

Death Pact International - Siege 1999 - 2009 (CD, Old Europa Cafe): Not very harsh, but an overall dark atmosphere, interesting album. The last track was a surprise: sounds more like old electronic music than anything else, which is nice, since I like some of that stuff.

Plenty of recently released noisecore today:

Arse - Discography cd. Raw and intense as hell. While all material has been recorded within c. one year, there is fair amount of variation. This is primitive in the very meaning of the word: no nonsense, no thinking what the stuff should sound like. Just making chaotic noise and someone recording it to tape. But why aren't there any material from Arseslaughter? I suppose it would have fit well to this cd.

Nihilist Commando - Noisecore Violations 2002-2008 cd. Less raw than Arse but much more violent. With strong sound, I think Nihilist Commando is taking noisecore to whole new dimensions. Or if there are other band sounding much alike, I'd definitely be interested to hear about them! The latest demo is a favourite of mine.

Napalm Death is Dead / Penis Geyser - split 7"
Pure noisecore on 7" is something I'll buy each time I see in some distro. After slow intro, NDID breaks with traditional 1 second long songs with high pitched screaming (low in the mix, luckily). Decent stuff. Penis Geyser is noisier, nonstop guitar feedback noise with drums beating "the usual noisecore stuff" on the background. Without the drums, this could be from your avarage harsh noise record. Intense stuff, though.

Aunt Mary - Almost Dead 7"
It actually took me some time to make sense is this 33 or 45 rpm. Drums sound too blurry for 33rpm but somehow too fast with 45.. Oh well. Anyway, it is the drums that are the main thing here. Other instruments are played in very noisy manner and put low in the mix. Also insane sounding screaming here. Not much like the old, classic 7" but going to new directions.

Arse - Discography cd.
But why aren't there any material from Arseslaughter? I suppose it would have fit well to this cd.

Arse and Arseslaughter are different bands. In 93 when Arse split up, remaining members joined forces with Savonlinna based Earslaughter. And new band Arseslaughter was born. Studio demo of Arseslaughter is utmost kult item, and I will try to do my best to get it released, but we'll see... Arseslaughter made huge amount of live shows with different line-ups, some better than others. Again, when band quit, from ashes were born Yesmeansyes. At their best, YMY is on split CD with 7MON. I have last few copies of this split CD available. Studio production, so it doesn't match the sheer regurgitating 4-track damage and walkman captured live assaults of Arse.

FFH/PRURIENT "central park jogger"- d/l'd this looking for "Women of War"; pretty good but some of it sounds like tracks pieced together rather than recorded specifically for this along with the slightly pitched-down news reports. Does have some nice wallish heavy staticy whitenoise electronics. Awful pitched-down vocals begin s2 but become better buried in feedback/static. Some of the glitchy lowend sounds remind me of recent Whitehouse. Anyone have a source for "W.O.W."?

Great to see people talking about noisecore here!
Years ago there was some great noisecore projects here in Brazil, but nowadays this scene is almost nonexistent. From the newer bands I know, most are joke projects or some gore-oriented stuff (neither of both really interest me). Maybe in 2011 I´ll start my own project in this field.

Skullflower C-100 on Cathartic Process - approving this test tape that reissues "The Paris Working" and "La Noche de Walpurgis" on a single tape. It sounds incredible on the hi-bias cobalt master, dubbed a little hot for nice saturation. This material is blistering. The A-side ("The Paris Working") is a live track that takes a few minutes to get going, but develops nicely into a really intense performance. The other side will remind people of "Vile Veil" and the material on the 3xCD box released last year. These CDr's were self-released, so not many copies were available and certainly not across the pond.

Lou Reed - Metal Machine Music CD - I forgot how amazing this CD is. I also forgot how much Sunroof! sounds like this album!

Aidan Baker - Book of Nods CD - I really love his solo work and most of the Nadja albums, but this is absolutely a highlight in his discography.

Tangerine Dream - Green Desert CD - don't be confused by its mid-80s release date. This was pre-Phaedra, and is at home among their early releases. Not as minimal as "Zeit," but a similar vibe.

V/A "Anthology 1: Come Organization Archives 1979-1981" 2CD - I picked this up to get the original version of the 150 Murderous Passions. I have the Stapleton mix on the United Dairies CD and the (what I believe is) the Ron Lessard remix tape that he put out on RRR. I was told by a friend that I was wrong when I said I had heard the album, referring to my UD CD. He was right.

Voice Of Eye - The Portland Improvisations CD - I was listening to this a couple weeks ago really loud in my office and my old lady said my daughter was really enjoying it, so she ripped it to play on her computer for her when she's putting her down for a nap. The play count on her iTunes for this album is in the 40s and rising. Needless to say, we've heard this one a lot around here. The same can be said for the next couple...

Circular - Shaping the Unknown CD - Kind of like what you could imagine a Klaus Schulze + Inade collaboration sounding like. This has been left on repeat at the house, listening to it several times a day for the past few weeks. The whole family jams to this one regularly.

Haare - Doomsday Sunrise CS - coming out soon on Cathartic Process, the master was on constantly. I left it in the position in my disc changer right after the one I remove to put on other discs, so this always followed whatever I was listening to for about 4 months. I have probably listened to this more than anything in the last decade. It's definitely my favorite Haare recording, so I'm really happy to be putting it out.

Soisong - xAj3x CD - I can only listen to this in the living room on my old lady's computer because of the octagon shaped CD. All my other players are slot-loading. Thankfully, she has good speakers so we can jam this one loud. I was very pleasantly surprised by this disc. I had read reviews (even raving reviews) that made me hesitate to pick it up. It's certainly like nothing else I listen to (is anything like Soisong?), but it's really stunning. "Paer Tahm," which has a particular magical quality to it. In fact, when my baby girl is fussy, I can put this track on and when the female vocals kick in toward the middle, she'll stop everything and really focus on the music. I checked out the website that you can access with a code from the CD and it was really cool to see that the pulsations of the images match the rhythm of "T-Hu Ri Toh" which just happened to be playing when I was going through the photos on the site.

Monks of the Dip Tse Chok Ling Monastery - Sacred Ceremonies: Ritual Music of Tibetan Buddhism, Vol. 1-3 3xCD box set - There are tracks on here that sound like Wolf Eyes playing Tibetan ritual music! There's some serious morphogenetic connections between this ancient music and the stuff that influence what we all listen to and talk about on this board. The horns! The bells! and the metal junk noise?! Yup, that's here too. I decided to pick this up after a friend sent me this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdBSTAw_cKY  This is good stuff. I could live the ascetic life to daily perform ritual music like this alongside hundreds of monks!

Nurse With Wound - The Surveillance Lounge CD - After many years of fairly average releases, this one shows that Stapleton can still put out material that stands alongside anything in the discography. Brilliant!

Or if there are other band sounding much alike, I'd definitely be interested to hear about them! The latest demo is a favourite of mine.

The "Live Assault" from 2008 is my favorite thread of attacks on there. NC covered a nice range for such a small and (seemingly) straight-forward genre but they were also consistent enough as to be able to tell that it is definitely them. It would be hard to offer up any new artists doing similar stuff.

Because of this thread I threw on some Tortured Hooker, specifically "An Offender's M.O. Can Change. Static And Rigid Remains The Signature". That thin, recorded with one-mic sound couples nicely with Fernowian Noisecore.

Putrefier & Romance live collab 2007 LP
Harbinger
Damn, this sounds pretty close to recent LAFMS event Putrefier live? And then he had 3 members from one other band collaborating. You can't expect much of "Romance" type of killer harsh noise here. In fact, first listening was adjusted way too low in stereos. I was sitting down in chair, thinking should I turn it up, or will there be soon some total explosion of volume? No, there wasn't. So new rotation with more volume. This morning I decided to give more spin, and I know I must have said this before, but perhaps my tastes has matured. Not only tend to drink scott whiskey for taste of it, and finally "learned" to drink this crap you call coffee, but also learned to appreciate the noise, that seemingly goes nowhere. When the LP starts, it operates in ultra high pitched electronics. Metal sounds are not like huge sheets, but little think clatter without been loudly amplified. Electronic noises are short and fast. A lot of it is like clicks, pops, short lazer shots. Material indeed steps further and further away from the early "PE" of Putrefier, and perhaps even further and further from his Hyper Tension Classics era harsh noise. One could throw references to old electro acoustic and experimental electronic music. Good thing in this is, that each sound is very distinctive. You can follow texture of multiple things happening, you can hear the occasional effects what are placed in strategically good moments. Like from layers of dry and thin electronics noodling, one suddenly goes to deep bass levels while some other has short moment of extensive echo, which doesn't really disappear into chaos, but you can follow the duration and detail of echo with everything else happening on top of it. And this is one of the things what is missing in genres like PE or Dark Ambient. Artists not being able to see that even if echo is good, it may not be THAT good, if it becomes mandatory routine element to drive everything through it. Instead of using it with skill and taste. Nothing in this recording sounds like they would just leave equipment to do their thing. It seems like 2 guys are hands-on, actively processing sound all the time.
If you seek for noise a'la Romance or old/mid era Putrefier, forget this. If you seek for experimental electronic works, it's very nice.

That Thorofon LP is pretty damn good as is their debut 7" appearance on State-Art. A split, I think?

Listening to Consumer Electronics "Crowd Pleaser" LP- it's ok. I'd like it more if his vocals were mixed a little lower into the electronics. Weak static/buzzing & his voice isn't very interesting, let alone, powerful.

Skinny Puppy - VIVIsectVI LP
classic. HUMAN DISEASE

Author & Punisher - saw him play two weeks ago. I was really disappointed with the performance to be honest.


Classic indeed. Although the CD version boasts the extra tracks. Just wanted to spin it on vinyl though. The album is a very prominent highlight in their discography, make no mistake! Skinny Puppy will always be one of my favourite bands but it is sad how little they have achieved, with the exception of live performances, since their comeback a good 10 years ago. They are of course missing a third of their brilliance who has been and gone. Saying that, they were fantastic when I saw them in July but maybe because they stuck to the classics. The last two albums barely shine a light to the majority of their back catalogue - but I read somewhere that Ogre has claimed the forthcoming album will be very "raw". I will believe that when I hear it. Allegedly it will be called In Solvent See which is related to the insolvency of the record label who released their last two albums. If that is not a prime example of their general decline then I do not know what is. On a lighter note, that Fractal Zoom bootleg CD has some fantastic live versions of a lot of the Bites tracks. I have a spare copy for sale or trade with any other Puppy maniacs - I am particularly interested in obtaining the Heavens Trash, Intolerance and Land Of Technology CD bootlegs or the Choralone 5" flexi.

Author & Punisher has to be one of the only new projects that genuinely excited me. As soon as I heard Doppler I bought the CD. Crushing, well executed brutality at its finest. It may sound like Godflesh in places but to be honest, anything with guitars and a drum machine may steer close to that sound. A lot of genres I like are moulded together without appearing too contrived or out of place. Having seen videos of Tristan's setup it looks like something that is innovative yet perhaps difficult to pull off live. What did you not like about the performance you saw? Highly recommended regardless.

This may only be my second post here but I already prefer it to Chondritic Sound (do not even get me started on Noiseguide...) - nice to see some actual discussion happening. I should have joined here when I first browsed the forum a year ago, but it was pretty dead then!

Allegedly it will be called In Solvent See which is related to the insolvency of the record label who released their last two albums.

They already used "In Solvent See" as the name of the 2009 tour, which of course featured none of the songs from the 2011 album.  I doubt the album will reuse the name.

I don't care for lazy answers like what I'm about to say, but you can't go wrong with any of the Hum of the Druid releases.  He's never stagnant, but they are all of the same quality, and qualities, as all the others.  You won't feel like you're buying an unknown artist, but you surely will be exposed to a new perspective.  He's uniquely consistent like that.  If there is an odd release in his catalogue, it is Raising the New Wing/Braided Industry; because moreso than maybe any of the others, it is based heavily on tonality and textures rather than structure and textures.

Be sure to own copies of Mountainous and Trials.

Aye, 1st LP. It's been a while since I listened to it, but I remember it being a little more wild and varied than Raising the New Wing/Braided Industry and Norse Fumigation. I remember some bassy square wave synth sounds too, maybe? It's good material, just less focused and maybe less mature than the last two on SNSE.

At somepoint I'm going to send him some material for a collab if I can get out of my lazy slump...

Both are from 2005 and were self-released on CDR in digipacks.  They were in print a long time (maybe still in print?).  You should be able to find a copy of each.

Aha, now i understand. I thought it was only one release with the name "Mountains and trails". And i actually got the Trials cd-r, must listen to it again though cause it was a long time ago since i did. Thanks for the answer!

Mountainous is actually very limited... most of the copies went to people at the Portland fest in 2005, but some went out later. I know a couple people sold their copies over the years, so that is the best bet. I know you're a big fan of this one, but I always felt similar ideas were better done on Trials. I like Mountainous for the fact that it's the first real experiment I did with the "heavy organic-industrial" type of sound, but I don't care if anyone else hears it.

MANIA----glad to hear it's still on your mind. Take your time....

Walter Carson - sneezes and breezes - tape. strange one, sounds like it´s falling apart while listening, mouldy electronics, pretty cool.
Play motel - tape. 4 short static noise tracks based round this sleazy Ray Lovelock giallo, last track even has some nice dialogue samples from it (but nothing form the super catchy theme-song). Brilliant!
Crash at every speed - forecast - tape. Everchanging but not very dense noise, sounds a bit like malfunctioning elctronic devices, but maybe it´s the tracktitles that leads me into that. Really liked this a lot, but what is that on the cover?!
Spine Scavenger - Shackles of man-meassured time- lp. simple, somewhat hypnotic and bloody great!
Spine Scavenger - plays the writings of commander x - tape. didn´t like this half as much as the lp, specially the b-side is irritating and unfocused. a-side is ok. murky synth layers.
Ghost - opus something (can´t read it...) - LP. i´m not much of a metalguy at all, but this much hyped band is really really good. reminds me a bit of old Death SS... if most black metal is Saw & Hostel in moives, this is more like Hammer horror or Blood on Satan´s claw, i like it!

Torturecide (CDr, Slaughter Productions): Kind of tight structured Death Industrial, with sick effected vocals in a bit of a military commanding style. Short album, but I like it.

Fuck the Modern World (comp CD, Autarkeia): Only known names were The Grey Wolves, Con-Dom and Deutsch Nepal. Good tracks from those acts, Deutsch Nepal is a kind of calm track, with some neo-classic vibe, I really liked this. The other acts (Frozen Faces, Traur Zot, Hazard, Janitor & Wejdas) differ: some are more ambient, some more pe/di, some interesting tracks, some less. Overall, I've heard way better compilations than this. Must give it another spin, but I wasn't really convinced after the first one.

SRMEIXNER "ten thousand ways to die" CD
holy shit! I think the sale speech with spaghetti western references was something I foolishly associated immediately to that old Cock ESP/Merzbow 7" with western theme samples appearing in middle of harsh noise blasts. But no no no! This is pure gold!! Listened it several times, and it just gets better. With 36 minute playtime, one starts to feel this LP length is absolute brilliant choice.

Otherwise, been just busy as fuck. For seasonal reasons, been listening more of the metal recently. Inquisition, Azelsgard, Aryan Blood, Kriegsmaschine/Infernal War, Uncreation's Dawn, Graveland,... Although most possessed by recordings of the Alchemy of the 21st Century, which can't get enough, hah!

yeah, you mean Rob/Darken, who is only one in band since 90's? I guess Capricornus has been out band since 90's and out of scene permanently for years too. Several years ago I talked with him about some LP versions, but then he disappeared. Been listening the new split 7", which is fine, but not as good as they are at their best. From 1993 to 1997 pure gold, after that, hits & misses.
Also listening today polish bands Kataxu and Necator. Kataxu at their best is totally epic black metal. Or Swastyka "prophecies of aryan moon".. even if merely intro+1 song + burzum cover, very good.

Also on play list, some Sibelius, which is fine for Finnish classical music, yet not as adventurous and dark as classical can be at the best.
AntiChildLeague/Silent Abuse split 7" good stuff too.

Yes, he was Darken. I am impressed your knowledge about Polish black metal music. Unfortunately, this kind music never have influenced on me.

Now I listen to French STENKA BAZIN and his "Survie" (Emergence Du Repus) tape. Very interesting old school industrial from the 80s. Prepared tapes, experimental sounds, multilplanes sonic structures. No doubt, it should be reissued on CD.

Really enjoyed the recent Selbstmord album.

Heard the new Gontyna Kry material is more like DM than weird atmospheric shamble-symphony style of the older material... I'm hesitant to track it down...

After all the talk about a dead and shit forum it's time to get back to business!
 
EX.ORDER - Broadcast 23 a Live Documentation, LP

Classic cold as fuck SPK worshipping German industrial. Within its genre this is as good as it gets. I only have this and the CD reissued by IA last year. If all of it is as good as this I'll have to buy the lot.

NOISE PROPAGANDA Volume 3, C60

Only the a side of this so far. I was told the DIUTESC track is shit but I found it OK. Not great by any means but acceptable. HAARE chose the same theme as I did without asking my permission first. He's a rude boy but It's a great track. I don't stay on top of HAARE releases the way I used to but it seems he's getting nastier and darker by the release. VIDINE RAMYBE is totally unknown to me. It's very good. Heavy and massive with a fluttering quality which gives a feeling of saturation, as if something is about to burst. SICK SEED is more full on and sounds as unhinged as he did on the Hated Perversions compilation. That's the side of SS I miss sometimes so I'll put this in the category of my prefered tracks by him. STEEL HOOK PROSTHESIS are one of those American acts who sound more European. I like that of course. I see similarities sound wise to Control and on many occasions SHP are just as good even if they haven't recieved the same attention. This track starts with a low end and dirty bass tone/drone with a sample about Unit 731 over it. A rythm kicks after a while adding further heaviness to the track. It's excellent! SHP can do this with their eyes shut and hands tied behind their backs and that's why I love them. 

I'm not enough of a gay asshole to sit here and big up my own track. It's CIA/MK Ultra themed and that's about all I have to say about it. Thanks for inviting me on the compilation. More later...

Bereft - Your Messiah Will Fail (CDr, Bloodlust!): Very nice death industrial album. Some nice feedback, apart from that, hard to describe, however in a way, it's no surprise that it's half of The Vomit Arsonist, although, to be honest, I like The Vomit Arsonist just a bit more. Anyway, if you like VA, or Death Industrial in general, I think it very worthwile to check this out.

I do appreciate all the Ex.Order releases. One can always argue, something small happened when they moved into computer technology, BUT, when they sound wasn't that "dirty" to begin with, they actually did the transformation pretty well. Same can be said about Inade, and while I used to worship some old Inade 10" above most of their works, I must say that new album felt like project might be at their strongest?! Ex.Order new album that came out at end of 2010, remains faithful to their style.

Hermann Kopp : nekronology  lp ....great soundtrack work, red/black splattered vinyl, embossed gatefold sleeve, ....tracks like Unholy really make my skin crawl.

Club Moral : mit neuen waffen  cd .....18tracks ! and only a few that really are of interest imho....respect @ doing reissues like this but i can't shake the feeling many releases are just for the sake of 'archiving' old material, good or bad.....i don't see the point of ultralofi live recordings, CM has a lot more to offer imho....



Title: Re: PLAYLIST

The Rita - snorkel/skate - LP. i like everything with this record, concept, covers, sound, all lovely. On the skate side more of the soundsource can be percieved and it is also the more varied side, but both are head-on noise that´s balsam for the soul...

Gomeisa - ego death - tape. 2 static walls of noise in 1 hour, minimal changes, rumpling and sparkling, to be honest i can´t explain what i like so much about this, just find it quite brilliant!

Envenomist - the reservoir - tape. Slow moving synth á la early Tangerine dream or stuff on Drone rec. label, 4 distict pieces with a bit more edge on the b-side. Don´t listen much to music like this anymore, it tends to get kind of boring after a while, but this is pretty good. Would work well as soundtrack to sci-fi/post apocalypse movie.

Peter Kowald - bass solo - LP. 40 minutes of only acoustic bass may sound like limited idea, but as the free jazz legend he is Kowald pulls this off in a fantastic way. Only couple of minutes of traditional playing rest is like looming and droning soundscape with lots of changes, really dark and mysterious, at the end he does a bit of his usual chanting. I believe a few of you here could really appreciate this extraordinary record!

ERIC LUNDE "drawing circles in the asphalt with the back of your head" LP
a.k.a. limited edition vinyl release of selections of "ootheka" CDr.
Cleaner and more electronics material. I must say, that LP format is very good for this - due shorter length and the atmosphere it offers. Some weaker tracks have been removed and even if not perhaps his best works, it offers different side than the ultra decayed & recycled and the field recordings. 100 copies edition on Trait Media.

cool, it´s great isn´t it! Kowald played with all the classic free jazz figures from the 60s onwards, both in Europe and America, starting with Peter Brötzmann. But sadly he passed away a couple of years ago. I´d never thought sounds like this could be made from a simple bass, was quite overwhelmed when i first heard it some months ago. Another brilliant bass-record, but with drums as well, is the Henry Grimes/Rashied Ali - Spirits aloft cd, more of a jazz feel, but there´s some really weird sounds on that one...!
I rather like solo-instrument records, must be quite a challenge for the artist to do. One of my favorite drummers Paal Nilssen-Love have made a solo drum cd and also one with drums/electronics, i must check them out!

$30 for quality music is not soo bad. With shipping for 2 LPs it may be expensive though. Unless your converting from the Euro. All the bands play well except I think the Institut side is pretty weak. But the Nod tracks are really excellent. Each bands plays about 20-25 min worth of material so you're getting a fair bit of music. And I don't want to spoil the surprise of Sharon's Last Party but it's again, even better than most of their other material.

Well, there's not too much material to choose from, is there? There's only the 7" on Segerhuva and the later tape, which is a whole different affair. The main difference probably being that Martin Bladh was part of the Nihil recordings (+ maybe also on the 7", I don't remember now?) - the music shifted in the same way Adolphi's musical interests changed considerably during this period.

It is worth 30 dollars but you should be able to find it much cheaper than that. I'm sure CMI still has copies but of course you take your chances ordering from him. There must be several brand new copies sitting in distros out there who can't wait to get rid of them. Keep looking.

Yes, the Institut side is probably the weakest I've heard from him/them. For Institut I recommend getting the Unto the Last Man 2 x 7" and work your way forwards. The releases before that are shit.

In that case, it would be totally worth it! As others have said, Institut are uncommonly weak here, but the other acts more than make up for it. It's a quality release with thick, heavy vinyl records and all.

Not teaching you to suck eggs but unless it's brand new and shrink wrapped make sure the seller removes the discs from the sleeve before sending it. I've had more than my tolerable share of LP's with damaged spines lately. One would think seasoned sellers on discogs knew how to package a fucking record but many don't.

Enjoy Nihil, it's a good record.

I know it's a bit off topic here, and might be a bit of an unknowing question, but I don't really understand why it is important to get the LPs out of the sleeves. I've seen most of the mailorders do it, so there must be a good reason to it, but I'm just not certain what the difference is. It's got something to do what happens if the package bends?


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: GEWALTMONOPOL on January 15, 2011, 02:14:22 AM
The chances of the disc moving inside the sleeve during transport are almost 100% guaranteed which means a very good chance of the spine getting damaged. The last LP I ordered on discogs turned up with a 3 inch gash in the spine which I could have done without.

The strange thing is that so few people seem to know this. I assumed it was bread and butter stuff for anyone who deals with vinyl but such is not the case which as has been proven many times. The most irritating incident was when GO's Mind Control turned up with a damaged spine. That's a 150 euros worth of, before sending, near pristine essential genre artifact.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: absurdexposition on January 15, 2011, 02:44:17 AM
yep. a lot of people don't "get" proper mailorder practices. it's really not hard to remove a record from its sleeve or to add some extra padding, or tape all sides of a box including corners (or even more than just one piece of tape on an LP mailer...). at least i got this one on ebay, so i can always mark "item arrived damaged" or something to that effect (ebay still has that option, right?)


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: Ashmonger on January 15, 2011, 12:35:39 PM

Pain Jerk / Rock'n'Roll Jackie CD. It's unique. First track is pretty much setting mood of discomfort, and finally in 2nd track they unleash the beast. Album most definitely requires multiple plays. First time is more like foreplay to really know what they're doing and when you start to get overall image, you can actually start to go to details. Which, in this album, is such a overdose, perhaps most of all thanks to Jackies contribution? Pain Jerks best contributions are at the latter part. More about it in SI#5..

two new bands [to my ears] that deserve more attention:

SFN - Itching 7" on Drugged Conscience - quality power-violence with a nice bass tone homage to Man is the Bastard (not style; tone) - Wisconsin PV no less.

New Lows - ALL (I believe they have a demo CDR, tape, and a coming album) - HEAVY, crushing HC that, as someone else put it, "totally dodges all the stuff i usually don't like from big label hard stuff", so no nu-metal and no riff-bending or pinched harmonics - HC, not sludge, though I'm sure it will get lumped into that by the lazy.

Smycken/Viking jews - split LP. Smycken side is not my type of music at all, synth-pop sounding like a non-mysterious Residents, even has some vocals (i´m often not to fond of vocals...). Viking jews side is thankfully much better, but strange band name, sounds like something of old United Diaries compilation, lo-fi, exotic vibe, nice!
Amph - rapport om blinda - tape. Actually pretty similar in style to Viking Jews, but maybe even better, some percussions and chanting (i much prefer that to than singing!). Good one.
Hollow Bush - the harmonic module revealed -tape. From R. Stella and reminds me of the 4th side of Macronymphas "cut ups, drones...", like being in a machinehall with slowly rising alarm shriek. Brilliant tape!

SFN - Itching 7" on Drugged Conscience - quality power-violence with a nice bass tone homage to Man is the Bastard (not style; tone) - Wisconsin PV no less.
I'm thrilled to see SFN mentioned on here! they're friends of mine from when I lived in Madison, WI - my old roommate drove them on their first east coast tour a few years back because none of them were old enough to drive at the time. the self-titled 7inch on 625 Thrash is also highly recommended

NOD - The Story Of The Three Little Pigs And The Big Bad Wolf

First time I heard this project was downloading some samples from CMI´s site several years ago. Then I heard the whole album and really enjoyed it, and kept listening to it from time to time. Also their songs on Nihil are really nice. For some reason, I see really few people still mentioning the band. It can surely be due to the band´s small discography, but I have also read some really hard opinions about Nod.

Any infos about the current status of the project or if it´s member (Daniel Wihlstrand) is doing something under some other monicker?

This is one of those bands that probably have problem being on label where their name is in shadow of so many bigger ones? When years ago, I took like 2 copies for sale, it took literally years to sell just 2.

Twodeadsluts Onegoodfuck (12"LP, Apop Records): Short noise attacks, with lots of feedback and rather strong vocals. B-side tracks are a bit longer and a less chaotic, but 'Another Dead Walpole Kid' sounds very bleak. Good stuff, even though it only lasts for about 17mins.

Twodeadsluts Onegoodfuck - Girls Born in the Nineties (3"CD, Apop Records): 14 tracks in 8 minutes. 4 tracks in the same vein as the LP, 10 tracks, forming one longer track, titled Girls Born in 1990 to Girls Born in 1999. Good stuff as well, though from the first listen I like the LP a bit more.

Neuntöter Der Plage - Swine (7", Nurse Etiquette): Dark Ambient/Death Industrial with Black Metal shrieking vocals with delay. Simple formula, very dark outcome, really like this.

Lodge of the Ancient Order - In Nomine Diabolus (7", Hellville Records): Read something about this obscure act and got interested, so I bought it to check it out. No bad guess. Kind of mixture between ritual/ceremonial drumming and a layer of noise, makes me think, together with the packaging aesthetic (being simple, but in a sort of medieval style), about Hexentanz, more or less same sort of atmosphere even though the music is different.

Ramleh - Hole In In The Heart 2CD
I've never really investigated this group properly. The interviews in ALAP and Niche Homo raised my interest enough to acquire some more cheap examples. Very nice stuff, atmospheric and yet it doesn't wander off too much to pointless directions or detours. I can definitely see the connection to "desolate urban lanscapes". The bleak psychedelic touches are just perfect.

Tangerine Dream - Cyclone LP
I guess this one is generally considered to be the sell-out album from this bunch? Doesn't matter, I like it all the same. Side A is more prog/pop-influenced but very well done with some stellar vocals. Side B on the other hand does the full-on kosmische thing for one long track.

Severin Bestombes (Vom Horse Gore Club) "Auszug und abgesang" LP (Punch)
--Some years old side-project LP from Nový Svet's Jürgen Weber, far away from their other works as NS, this is more into calmer experimental dadaistic vein. Focus on soundscape with strange breaks more than collage. Good, and requires repeated listenings.

Robert Turman "Way down" LP (Dais)
--Old works from 1987. I haven't heard the tape set Hanson released but I guess this must be quite different from those recordings. This is guitardriven, instrumental monotone synthpop almost. Only a few good tracks and hardly the masterpiece the label tells us.

Andrés Krause "Move ground" LP (Streamline)
--Two long tracks of the slow, and intense, calm drone with field recordings I enjoy a lot. Fits nicely on Christoph Heemann's label.

Ke/Hil "Hellstation" LP (Tesco)
--Haven't heard much of this one anywhere? Strange, considering it's Wilhelm H. from Genocide Organ and B. Moloch from Anenzephalia/G.O. Quite easy listening and not really upsetting material, stuff in the T.G. vein, coupled with influences from more accessible synth/industrial music. Good, but not genuinely engaging. I had preferred new Anenzephalia any day!

Panicsville+Prurient - Rubber Baron 8": Crude and noisy synth with alternating pitched-down spoken word and shrieking vocals. Sources seem to indicate this is a split release but sounds like a collaboration to me. I think I like this release a lot.
Curved Blade - Be Like Death cs: Supposedly Bone Awl+Prurient+Akitsa collaboration project? Enjoyable but far too short and the ideas don't seem fully fleshed out. I definitely like some of the things I am hearing but would like to have seen more time/thought put into this release and have a solid full length.
Prurient+Nico Vascellari - Jesus 2xcs: Nice stuff! One side on each cassette of a live collaboration and the other side (I'm presuming) is a collage studio work. Live actions are minimal with lots of feedback and screaming, the "studio" tracks are moody incorporating spoken samples. Liking this a lot.

Maybe it hasn't yet been spread very widely? I have heard people getting it already month(s?) ago, but still waiting my copies. Expecting LP and CD to distribution as well.

I haven't seen anyone to mention Pacific 213 2xCD release either. And it SHOULD be of interest of anyone into old industrial-noise. We're talking of double CD collecting material from old reel-to-reel tapes from bands archives.. and was it mainly era of 1st LP and before? Not just re-issue of something, but actually stuff what has been never heard before. That too, I'm still waiting to get. For myself, and for sale.

Today

Keränen "Bats In The Attic" CD
Excellent harsh noise! Varied sound with lots of dynamics! Perfect length for this sort of stuff... some 35 minutes.

Haare "The Temple" CD
Sludgy, dark, psychotic drone with quite a harsh edge to it. Noisier than more recent stuff, but just as excellent.

Haare "Nightmare Sutra" tape
Probably my favourite Haare release. Dark and nightmarish...

SRMeixner "Ten Thousand Ways To Die" CD
Latest output by ex-Contrastate member, and the final release by the ever excellent Segerhuva label. I don't know of any suitable descriptive label for this sound. There's a bit of drone in there, a bit of ambient, some samples, guitar, piano, harmonica (might be sampled)... just for starters. A very personal exploration of what the common themes of spaghetti westerns might be. Very recommended! I wish more music was made in this vein...

False Mirror - Derelict World CD - decent dark ambient though didn't quite get into it. maybe because it was morning.

Phelios - Astral Unity CD - I liked this one more. Dark ambient with some rhythmic parts and overall not too abstract.

Rita, The + Wilt - Werewolf In The Black Space - good album, good noise.

Bastard Noise - Our Earth's Blood IV - forgot about this release and just yesterday listened to. a very nice compilation/album or however it should be called.

Xiphoid Dementia - Might Is Blight - a couple of times enjoyed relistening to this very good CD.

Goatvargr - Black Snow Epoch - never was too much into all that Nordvargr stuff, but this one is rather nice industrial album. I like it.

Sewer Election - Sex/Death (CD, PACrec): 3 tracks of Harsh Noise, first two last 15min, last one 30min. Not much special to say about it, sounds like decent harsh noise to me. Second track is a more subdued track, with more bass sounds and less high pitch, which makes it less extreme, but more brooding, like this stuff.

Navicon Torture Technologies - The Gospels of the Gash (2CD, Malignant Records): Quite a monolithic release, with both CDs lasting around 70min. Mixture of Dark Ambient/Death Industrial, so some tracks are calmer, while others are a bit more extreme. All sounds rather clean, no really filthy stuff, but that's definately no bad case here. Some parts remind me a bit of Steel Hook Prostheses, but I guess it's actually the other way around, since NTT started earlier. Great layout, by the way!

Cryptic Winds - Storms of the Black Millenium (CD, Breath Of Night/Merciless): Extreme, fast black metal with a drumcomputer and lots of effects on the vocals. This is definately among my favourite bm releases. Feels to me like one of the most aggressive albums, there is. I also like the intermezzo's as well. Altogether this has a very strong (post-)nuclear apocalypse feeling, which gives it, next to the aggression also a desolate feeling.

Raymond Dijkstra "L'opus ch" LP
So what's good thing about this 'zine called Special Interests? I'd say it expands (my) view on what to spend money on. Dijkstra was utterly unknown figure to me, before contributor offered interview etc. I liked what I was reading and communicated a bit and found artist selling his self financed LP for pretty good price. No regrets. I guess better review to be found from past issues of SI, but I could say I like the way this has plenty of "air" in the sound. Lots of things happen and some of the sounds are rotten and damaged, yet one couldn't talk about "noise" in same sentence. Audio collage of wide variety of sounds and instruments, which seems relatively loosely put together and sometimes plays with dynamic range very well, sometimes feels like artists doesn't aim to sound "professional" what comes to choice of sounds/effects. Not "academic", more just underground art.

Current 93 looney runes. I have probably talked enough of C93 in this topic. STILL yet to start VOD box materials, but been circulating it like fly around turd, but after all picking up everything else from my collection to listen, or re-listen. Apocalyptic folk and goofy experimental music with very unique approach.

Nocturno Culto - music for movie Misanthrope. Happened to get 2nd hand CD to my shop, and while eating lunch, I decided to take a look how the movie is. Before that, I did listen the "20 minutes of new exclusive music" presented on disc two. If one wants to hear THE crappiest material with so little ideas, basically anything would be better, check out this. Imagine guy, with relatively cheap multi-effect pedal, trying to get some delay/reverb and line-in distortion work for the brainless guitar sounds. It tries to be some sort of experimental music, but turns out to be like first attempt to try out couple bad pedals and failing. Still promotional sticker has the pompous text of "new exclusive compositions". He had to compose THESE?
Combine that with few moments of cheapest bedroom metal riffing and vocals via distortion box making no sense. Words don't do justice how shit this is. And, it is big dvd size "superpack" with dvd movie and audio cd on Peaceville! What the fuck?! So what is the "movie" then? Nothing really. It's like home video footage of short clips of fishing, biking, skiing, going to rehearsals, some bands playing live. Nocturno Culto signing Aura Noir to his label and guys then drinking and smoking while playing chinese chess in cabin. Nothing looks good visually. Nothing is edited in good way and most of all, nothing just makes sense. Things this covers, it's like 30 seconds of Darkthrone rehearsing. 60 seconds of aura noise live in some rock club. Nocturno Culto driving car to rehearsals and Fenriz saying "I haven't bough new cymbals for years". And that's the substance of this... ehm, it says "movie", yet it isn't really. It's not really document either. It's more of collection of video diaries which has no value to outsider. Avoid like plague!

Hal Hutchinson - Amplifications (3"CDr, Der Bunker Records): Wanted to check out his noise work, after listening to Taste of Iron. Totally different of course, but good noise stuff. Maybe nothing extraordinary, but just a good 17min track of Harsh Noise.

Concrete Isolation Box - Love Under Steel And Concrete (CDr, self released) and self-titled tape (C30, Disease Foundry): Got this in a trade for my NATH demo, and it's definately a good trade! I like the tape a bit more than the CDr. In general a mixture of harsh noise and power electronics tracks, sparse use of (effected) vocals, which are good, all sounds rather crude and lo-fi, but it's well structured. Interesting discovery for me, at least.

Oscillating Innards - Grey Variables 12"
BT.HN - Vitiated lp
Bizarre Uproar - Unsafe and Insane lp
Incapacitants - Tight lp

All Dogma Chase releases. I adore Incapacitants yet Tight must be one of their lesser works, sound is too sharp (digital?) and noise not as dense as in their best recordings. All others top quality, considering both music and artwork. Not too similar to each other, BT.HN being my favourite of this bunch. I'm not sure if its a radiowave manipulation or what, but the end result is strong and warm sounding noise. Not too many things hapening at same time, not too intense in terms of speed or movement yet the sound makes Vitiated very pleasent to listen to.

Haters "Further" CD, commented elsewhere.. while there is this major backbone of crackling static noise, under it goes huge amount of cinematic industrial sounds. Movie soundtrack stuff? Electronic beats, screams, swirling electronics. etc. It holds some of the characteristics of "HNW", but in other hand, it went so far from it, it nearly becomes just slow sludgy music? Beats are pretty abstract, but still, if one listens something like Halo, and then wants to decide do you take THIS or Ordinarily Nowhere or In the shadows of fire, I guess this is obvious choice. But as for my personal tastes, I prefer two mentioned ones.

Anal Barbara / Funeral Mongoloids split tape
Solid noisecore. Amusing Darkthrone reference on FM side!

Whitehouse "New Britain" CD
Probably one of my favorites from WH. It's hard to really decide, since all albums have the proper reason to exists, which makes it pretty rare case in noise/pe. Nobody did it like this. It's totally beyond.

Final Solution demo 1990. Was just re-issued by Hospital / Chrome Peeler records, as it originally was. 4 studio tracks with strong and fierce sound. One could actually say this is better than for example Rapeday 7" !

RUNZELSTIRN & GURGELSTOCK  "morx und kotschalg" cd..... 1993 Selection release. Over 70 minutes long track. This is just around the time I heard the band for the first time and it seemed too difficult to get into. Years passed and I begun to worship what they do, and now, finally bought this and listened it 3 times during one day. It is, extreme by all standards.

Shitload of tapes have arrived in the mail during the last few days. Here's some of them...

Skullflower - The Paris Working/La Noche de Walpurgis (Cathartic Process)
Uhh... A long time since I last listened to any Skullflower. Is the current stuff really this good? (that was not a rhetorical question, by the way) Not super-high on fidelity but there's some truly devasatating stuff on this tape. Thick, treble-heavy sheets of deviant psychedelia, reaches levels that are almost nauseating. Standard tape-case and j-card but done according to the best of standards, thumbs up!

Relic - Anthology (Utmarken)
Slow, doomy, simple & stupid. I like it a lot. I don't know much about these kind of sounds but there's definitely something appealing here.

Sylvester Anfang II - Live At Utmarken (Utmarken)
Cosmic jams. Not groundbreaking or anything but good enough that I can just close my eyes and not worry about a thing.

Komissar Hjuler & Frau - s/t (Utmarken)
First thing I've heard from these people. Silly noises, on top of which they read texts about conrete poetry & Gustav Metzger. Nothing to it, one might say. But it's still strangely engaging. Not in the "let's concentrate & listen to this all the way through" - kind of way but it gives a nice evening buzz playing in the background. Can anybody recommend other stuff from their discography?

Smoke The Pipe of The Starfilled Sky - s/t (Utmarken)
I guess it's fair to call this stoner? With some definite desert vibes thrown in there. Again, I'm really not an expert with this type of music but I like some of it. And this passes the test, I can taste the beer & feel the bong in my hand when listening. Sonics are sort-of muffled and dull but I guess it fits here alright. Minus points for not filling the B-side all the way!

Pymathon - Ruptured In Hyperborea (TWR Tapes)
So which metal genre is this a pisstake on / tribute to? I'm very clueless (again.. hah!) about these things. Is it death metal? Whatever it is, it does sound very nice. Extended semi-impro-style riffing all the way, rough & stupid. During some points the noise itself becomes overpowering which is obviously not a problem.

Hmm... It seems I've liked them all. Must be getting old & lazy.

I would recommend COMMISARIS HJULER EN MAMA BEER-MENSEN DIE 'KORT STAAN' VOOR DE ZELFDODING LP (Ultra Ezcema). It´s a fantastic piece of annoying music? First time i heard it a few years back i was totally confused and did not know if i hated it or love it. I still don´t know what to think, but in some weird way i love it. They also play Suicide´s "Frankie teardrop". Would be fun to know what Vega/Rev would think of it :-D

Skullflower - The Paris Working/La Noche de Walpurgis (Cathartic Process)
Uhh... A long time since I last listened to any Skullflower. Is the current stuff really this good?

Glad you dig the tape. To answer your question: yes. The Vile Veil LP (I have these if you are interested) is very similar, as is the 2xCD on Neurot ("Strange Keys to Untune Gods Firmament") and "Pure Imperial Reform" will tear through your head. The 3xCD box is also incredible, but unatainable. I love the new incarnation of Skullflower as much as the classic stuff. "Tribulation" is good, but not as powerful as the ones I already mentioned. I really loved these CD-r's and was bothered that they were done so cheaply and were largely unavailable. When I ripped them to mp3 to take them on the road a few months back and saw that both discs were almost exactly the same length and similar in style I knew it would make a perfect tape, and especially so since I think the second side was available as a CD-r at the show where the first side was recorded.

On the subject of Skullflower - my introduction to them was buying a copy of the "Evil Knievel" seven inch after reading an encouraging review. I hated it; sounded like sub-par grunge. Haven't really bothered with them ever since, so can I assume that little album was an anomaly?

"New Britain", for me, is the worst record from their first period (and probably in their all discography). Too much minimal and instrumental, without inside fire, but, of course, still interesting.

"morx und kotschalg", yes, great record! Though I think that his "Dein Mund So Rot..." (Pure) is even better. Rudolf is only real dada artist our times...

1) how shoebox size noise distro contacts Cargo for successful deal
2) price. I have sold LP's for 20 euro and double LP's for more, and after cut from middleman (distributor/wholesaler) the profit margin is pretty much nonexistent, but price is still relatively high. Of course, these are the best versions to buy. Total Sex 2xLP ! Huh! What a intense version!

"New Britain", for me, is the worst record from their first period (and probably in their all discography). Too much minimal and instrumental, without inside fire, but, of course, still interesting.

I think the minimalism, the breaks between songs, utterly high pitched overall sound, is what makes it even more disturbing than many other albums.

ARISE / IRON JUSTICE split CDr. I wonder what is this. Hour of 13 productions from NC, USA, edition of hand numbered 30 copies. I don't remember where and when I have got it. Arise is quite clean PE. At worst it is bad, but at the best it goes somewhere along Control Resistance, Deathkey, and such. With songs like Forced Control, Blut Heil!, The Law of Man, they follow very tightly the cliche's of the genre...
Iron Justice material sounds like era of the 7", being 4 tracks of straight power electronics. Especially "Face the Freedom" goes probably too obvious Con-Dom worship? It is nice enough, but always leaves impression of band who painfully clear tries to adapt into PE, but in long run doesn't have enough to offer? It's hard to say what exactly would be wrong, since all the elements are just like they should. Maybe that's the reason..
I tried to check out if this is official release. At least it gives all contact addresses, but no info of year on cover and nothing found about label.

Trampling the Cross Underfoot - The Long Journey On the Arm of Death (Satan's Din 2011) - Fucking great tape here. I am preparing a longer review for my "Pure Stench" blog so I won't say too much about it here. Basically a 20 minute long simplistic track with one member doing vocals (or rather talking, almost like a spoken word album) rambling on in a very monotone way, with a few added effects, about various topics while the other member forges a nice substratum of Noise that slowly builds up piece by piece from a layer of rippling static to finally a full stew of crunchy distortion, washed out drones and snapping static (possibly effected metal abuse?). This one comes highly recommended.

Hal Hutchinson - Taste of Iron (Freak Animal 2010) - The album title is a very fitting description in-and-of itself. As described, this is 20 minutes of pure junk metal Noise without compromise - no effects and no vocals/pedals all delivered at a crawling speed. It appears to be lacking a general structure which is perfectly fine for this type of material - field recordings of raw and unedited junk abuse: chains, barrels, sheet metal, etc. Unlike Macronympha's legendary Metal Noise I can't see listening to this on a regular basis. I would not call this a novelty because that takes away from its artistic merit but I also can't see it being part of, as we call it, "the canon of PE" but rather a motley "one-off" from the Industrial/Noise/P.E. collective which I personally probably won't be playing too much, not because it is bad but it isn't remarkable enough to my ears and with something like this it needs to be remarkable to have a good shelf-life.

whithouse have pressed their lp's thur CARGO's distributions label very friendly so the standard is tip top...i have  all the represses and had zero complaints!

I only have Asceticists 2006 on vinyl, but it seems like it's very low volume. I really have to crank the volume knob to get it at a satisfactory level. Are any of the other new WH vinyl editions like that? It's only a minor complaint and I'll still probably pick up a few regardless.

IRM - An Act of Self Mutilation is an Act of Freedom CD-R

Was definitely into this one aside from the live track at the end. Way too much crowd sounds are heard. Especially those couple people "woo"ing constantly. Really detracted from the whole experience. Otherwise a good disc! Anyone know what the pressing was? Discogs says it comes in a DVD case, but mine didn't. Just a folder sleeve, can't find info on it.

SQUAMATA - Arrogant absolute -tape. Brilliant noise tape! It has some wall-influences i suppose, rumbling, but far from static, things happening most of the time and lots of surprices. Not hectic like japnoise though. Is this a Finnish artist?
MILLION BRAZILIANS - New ideas in psychic music - tape. Foundation seems to be snakecharmer-flute and drums, one side starts a little freejazzy and goes in more rock oriented way after a while, other side sounds a bit like Nurse With Wound when they´re laid-back goofy, like Cooloorta Moon, parts with spoken words of something i didn´t really pay attention to. Nice one.
LEWD - Pincers - tape. I believe this is a Dutch early 90s group. Music is similar to Skullflower/rock-Ramleh, pretty short songs in different tempo some with vocals. It´s well done, but this type of music does not interesset me anymore i´m affraid.... 2-3 minutes is ok, then i get bored with it.
WEREWOLF JERUSALEM - Someone lurking in the dark - tape. I guess this rather short tape is pretty typical W.J., sort of calm noise, not sure why i get that impression from this project, but i like it a lot. Static with a few minimal changes that seem monumental at high volume, specially like the sound ending side B. Great tape!
LETTERA 22 - Negative tounge - 2xtapes. Not really sure what to say about this. It´s good noise, not very harsh or demanding, just pleasant to listen to. Both tapes are pretty much alike. It´s good stuff but i find it anonymous and rather forgettable.
Travis Johnson - Valsa - 3"cdr. Drone in style of Halfer Trio and such artists, with a bit of a twist. The warm droning sound is played sideways with some cracking and twisting electronics, but it fits pretty good and gives it a bit of an edge. All in all not bad, but not very special either.

Alice In Chains - Sap CD (Never got this when I was a kid, picked it up cheap, really like it, prefer this and Jar of Flies over all their "harder" album releases.)

Cunt Decide - 579116952348 (99 Songs Demo) CS (Senseless Apocalypse before they were S.A., grindy noisecore, like Final Exit with the odd vaguely competent musical moments interspersed among the blasts.)

Corrupted - La Victima Es Tu Mismo 7" (Solid two sides of compacted Corrupted heaviness...)

The Rita - Voyage Of Decima MAS CD (Unflinchingly focused examination of personal aesthetics... really awesome.  Cold.)

The Rita - Thousands Of Dead Gods CD (This and the Hennix have been played endlessly, this one at low volumes, the high end really stands out nicely as a delicate layer of foam.)

Takami - Yume No Kirigishi CD (Love this kind of drifty 80's gothic stuff... totally its own vibe.. like mixing a Japanese Dead Can Dance on heroin with Tangerine Dream.)

CLUB MORAL "mit neuen waffen" CD, nice document, but I don't think it lives up to the best of CM stuff? With CM its often same feeling as listening some of the VOD minimal synth re-issues. It seems pretty nice for what it is, but it all doesn't age as nicely as does the noise and raw power electronics. Lots of simple synth pulsations and awkward vocals.

LAXATIVE SOULS 2xCD, I dare to say much better than above mentioned. With it's weaknesses and strengths, still material not many dare to do these days.

VAPAUSSOTA "totaalinen vitun ep" tape. Have they done some sort of Hässäkkä tribute with doing ep with the same name?? It advertizes itself as noise/doomstep/industrial/black metal whatever. Very synthetic sound with long wet reverb, distant metal junk and upfront vocals. Well, there isn't really noise here. Neither any black metal. Doomstep? Who knows what that should be. To me this sounds like humor project of some grind/hc people, where they take the topics as Pekka Siitoin, finnish civil war, bible, etc. and scream with kind of grindcore screamo voice over relatively clean rhythmic electronics. It's relatively well made, but sounds utmost joke. And unfortunately, the joke doesn't really work, unless one would present it to be serious?

Bennett / Tsunoda 12", damn! I wondered if Bennett has actually wanted to make nice profile lift among electro labels, and made some split. Didn't even bother to check out description of the LP before buying it. Well, this is actyally JUSTIN Bennett.... but hell, if dense wall of racket made out of 2003 Barcelona demonstration against war in Iraq sounds almost like... ehm, war in Iraq, then can't really complain! Just massive amount of people banging drums and yelling and whatnot, and it's basically just dense detailed noise. Tsunoda has manipulated field recordings and sine waves. Not bad.

What is that? Looks awesome.

Russian ANS-synthesizer. Isn't that the cover of the Coil album? Never heard that one. But one album that's been in my player a lot recently is the Electroshock Presents: "Electroacoustic Music. Vol. IV: Archive Tapes. Synthesiser ANS (1964-1971)" compilation. Wonderful stuff.

1. Oleg Buloshkin: "Sacrament"
2. Sofia Gubaidulina: "Vivente Non-Vivente"
3-4. Edward Artemiev: "Mosaic" & "12 Looks at the World of Sound"
5. Edison Denisov: "Birds' Singing"
6. Alfred Schnittke: "Steam"
7-8. Alexander Nemtin: "Tears" & "I. S. Bach: Choral Prelude C-dur"
9. Schandor Kallosh: "Northern Tale"
10. Stanislav Kreitchi: "Voices of the West"
11. Edward Artemiev & Stanislav Kreitchi: "Music from the Motion picture "Cosmos"
12. Stanislav Kreitchi: "Intermezzo"

Got any info about Oleg Buloshkin? Don't know anything about him. I enquiried the label about him, asking about the possible existence of other electronic works, and the response I got was: "As for Oleg Buloshkin's activity then I can say that it's the one and only composition created by this blind composer for ANS synth, and I don't have any other compositions by this artist." The track is absolutely stunning, mysterious dream music. Would love to know more...

I didn't like Belus, only grew on me slightly but feel no urgency to bother with it again, not like Hvis or Det Som. I did read Fallen is more akin to Det Som though(?) so will give it a chance at least, although that was a quote from Varg which I take with a pinch of salt.

LR "rosenmunde" 2xtape, good harsh and lo-fi noise electronics. It's hard to say what exactly it is. Two short tapes, where perhaps again some of the grimmest and lo-fi Prurient a'la split tape with Grunt comes to my mind occasionally, yet there is personality to what LR does. It's rough and dirty.

Haare "death happening" 7", hahahah!!!! English guys have the good taste to treat our Finnish drone shaman! First At War With False noise put out cd with front cover saying HAAPE and now Turgid Animal unleashes the amazing beast of suomi-leijona into back cover!! Total classic!!! Red-neck drone? I think that is something what really needs to be there. I'm pretty impressed. What comes to the music, Haare is surprisingly chaotic and disharmonic here! Layers of reversed sounds creates demonic roaring noise. Which isn't harsh, but very far from relaxing. I'd like to congratulate band for being able to bring some nice new things to its approach! Other side is much more conventional Haare with eerie guitar drones and lots of layers of things happening. Could it be that reversed side is the other side.. just reversed? Nevetheless, Good 7"!

Liimanarina "first I look at the tits" tape
Huh! If one has to vote for best song title for recent weeks, it must be: "Laulu Liiallisuuksiin menevästä gay-ystävällisyydestä (maailma homojen panttivankina)"!! Finnish obscurity cult band, which supposedly has ton of unreleased shit laying around, and perhaps these days isn't that "cool" that labels would invest money for doing 7"s etc. But fuck, This opening ballad alone would be perfect single. Sound of the tape is actually cleaner than most of old Bad Vugum stuff, but the bizarro levels are still there.

Geography of Hell - Tchernobyl 1986 (cassette) - In the past year I've been less and less excited about Hospital tapes but it's tapes like this that restore faith. Another Fernow project, Geography of Hell is lo-fi but more exciting than some of Fernow's other side projects. There's lots of flange and shitty electronic sounds, almost retro (?) in a way. But effective crude, violent and decayed. The vocals have very little effects on them sometimes which is a plus. Just two 20 minute tracks of shit industrial and hint of power electronics. Recommended.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST

GIALLO - LP. Compliation of four artists doing "walls" with relation, more or less, to the giallo genre. I like the attempt to link it together in the insert, not sure i buy it, but a nice try. One can argue that this is pointless music where nothing happens, well maybe, but i happen to really enjoy it! Not much variation between the artists but all solid. Must give credit to last one, Naked Girl Killed in the Park with track Mysterié, both artist and track-title taken from films with very few redeming values, specially Mysterié, what a piece of crap... but track is good!
HUM OF THE DRUID - Norse Fumigation - LP. Titles and artwork creates feeling of mystique, but on first listen i though it sounded only like a running engine, maybe a harvester, and not much else. Something made me go back to it and upon second and third listening i got sucked in and now find something more. It actually does have an aura of mystery, of mist and marshes, maybe i get this from reading Lovecraft last night... A record that grows, how nice, i´ll look for more stuff by this guy!
WEREWOLF JERUSALEM - The beast before christ - cdr. Another good one from the werewolf, typical sound, static but abruptly changing low pitched noise. Second track is called "extreme waves of terror" so i was prepared for a headache, but it was same as usual.
THE RITA - Womanhood - tape. Celebrating the ladies of eurotrash cinema, Monica Swinn, Pamela Stanford etc. The more restrained style of The Rita, i prefer the all-out noise, but this is good as well, maybe not as effective, more like mood/background music.
EVIL MOISTURE - if you want to fuck the sky, teach your cock to fly - lp. Like being taken back to the noise of the 90s.... I guess E.M. was active even back than, maybe i´ve even had a tape or two from them/him. This has that goofing around style with sounds coming and going, random screams, quirks etc. (and yes, the word "cock" in the title) that was popular then, no real flow to it. There are some decent enough ideas/sounds in there, but mostly i find this an annoying listen...

v/a - Snatch Paste - An Assortment Of Snatch Tapes LP
I guess the best word for describing this stuff is "charming". You know, nice homegrown lo-fi sounds combined with clear youthful enthusiasm. I'm not a big fan of the 80s synth-pop sound but even those elements don't really bother me here. It all flows effortlessly and smoothly, very much my kind of compilation, nothing stands out too much from the rest.

Street Drinkers / Skeppet - split LP
What is with Sweden these days? So many good/great projects coming out that it's difficult to keep up. Skeppet is more laid back, simple sparse beats + some soft psychedelic atmospherics laid on top. Doesn't blow the mind but surely is tasty. Street Drinkers borders on the ominous but still keeps it fairly melodic & comfortable. Last track reaches all the way up to majestic but stops before getting there. Ättestupa comes to mind at times, I guess there is some shared personnel. Nothing complicated or extremely ambitious, just very nice late night music. Goes well with red wine.

Dajjal - s/t C-90 on Cathartic Process

Aggressive, industrial noise with long, epic travel as it meanders through so many different lands, all with equally great skill.  I've only listened to side A so far because something I enjoy this much is something I'm going to be patient absorbing.  Blew me away.  I was sometimes reminded of early noise industrialists, and at one point, I was thinking of Richard Ramirez during his I keep My Stuff Inside and /Alchemy of the 20th Century period.  Says it was recorded live, and if so, and not well rehearsed prior to the recording, he was blessed with at least one 45-minute span of everything working for him.  As much as it changes, it felt effortless.  This is why I continue to listen to industrial music, and if I can find something this rewarding even once a year, I'm satisfied.

KE/HIL LP is very good! I think the weakest moment is the Monte Cazazza tribute song, but even that is pretty good. Album as whole, I was very positively surprised how strong industrial album it is!

Slogun new CD, fucking hell! Could this be up to very top in Slogun discography! And now as ltd 300 cd, being smaller pressing than almost anything in back catalogue. Don't miss!

Onamotopoeia "irrelevant" LP, old tape re-issued as LP. Who remembers? If you like the approach of some old UK noise. With sense of humor, sense of composition of experimental noises, this is great stuff. I keep repeating the "stuff you can't hear nowadays", and this artist is one of those. I can't think anyone who would be like this is contemporary noise? Brilliant.

so it's not tired noise with monotonous shouted vocals WAY too loud on top, like bloody roots? i've given slogun many chances, but it just doesn't seem to be my thing.

Complexity of the songs and variation in sounds is higher than ever before. It is still Slogun. So for example delay drenched vocals having "same sound" is present in many tracks, but now some changes on that department too. To me it sounds like Slogun is the most experimental and the most innovative about the sounds he uses than for years.

Haare "death happening" 7", hahahah!!!! English guys have the good taste to treat our Finnish drone shaman! First At War With False noise put out cd with front cover saying HAAPE and now Turgid Animal unleashes the amazing beast of suomi-leijona into back cover!! Total classic!!! Red-neck drone? I think that is something what really needs to be there. I'm pretty impressed. What comes to the music, Haare is surprisingly chaotic and disharmonic here! Layers of reversed sounds creates demonic roaring noise. Which isn't harsh, but very far from relaxing. I'd like to congratulate band for being able to bring some nice new things to its approach! Other side is much more conventional Haare with eerie guitar drones and lots of layers of things happening. Could it be that reversed side is the other side.. just reversed? Nevetheless, Good 7"!
Yeah, think I'm gonna have to buy a Karhu/Karjala baseball cap soon...
As for the sounds, nope, it's not the same material reversed. Some sounds were used on both sides though.

Sewer Goddess/Diseased Oblivion split (CDr, Degenerate Slime): Sewer Goddess has two tracks, first one sounds more like her 'usual' stuff, with some 'dronelike' guitars and cool sparse use of drums (cymbals). The second track is more Funeral Doom Metal. Good stuff as well, like her vocals on this one. Diseased Oblivion is misery-filled Doom Metal, good stuff. Only on the first (of the 3) tracks the vocals are a bit weird, like very deep spoken vocals, just sounds a bit off. Glad I still got this though, overall good stuff.

Anenzephalia - Noehaem (LP, Tesco/Zaetraom): Started weird with the first track being kind of classical music (dark, subdued kind of but still), not what I expected, then the second track starts with electronics, but in a way compliments the first track very well, so this works fine. (That first track in itself is good as well, just was not what I expected, hehe.) Overall this is some really good Death Industrial. Really like this LP.

Genocide Organ - Leichenlinie (CD, Tesco): Being an industrial classic and having heard some GO material that I liked, I ordered this. Definately worth of buying, but I think it still has to grow a bit on me, due to some of the tracks being a bit monotonous it seems.

Control - The Cleansing (CD, PACrec): Heard some Control tracks (ao on the Hated Perversions comp) which I really liked, so I guessed this compilation of other material is as good a place as any to get more of his material. Definately like this a lot. Though being Power Electronics, there's also a kind of ambient feel to me. Also really like the effected vocals.

Der Stürmer - A Banner Greater Than Death (CD, Die Todesrune): I don't have too much interest in NSBM, but Der Stürmer is really great. Makes me think they're kind of the War Metal of NSBM. Although this isn't fully fitting, because they also have some songs with a more epic feel, which are just as fine. I also saw them live in Belgium a couple of years ago, and live they're just as good, maybe not really tight or anything, but raw and energetic nonetheless.

Henry Chopin "catata for two farts & co" LP
Found this, and since it includes the killer "throat power" track it seemed to be the best Chopin to include in my own collection. Liner notes, great noise, especially the 2nd side, with before mentioned Throat Power and Vertigo Du Vertige tracks. If someone can advice for more stuff like this, please go ahead!! Perhaps not the cleanest pressing heard in world of vinyl, yet sound is so suitable for vinyl format.

Pimp Aktion-Slutgun LP.
Loooong awaited record, being the slightly cut version of original nearly unreleased C-60 tape on Zero Cabal. Nearly - because I think the planned anti LP packaging never happened, but some copies of tape with insert was sent around. I happened to get it back then, and thought the rough and crunchy noise was just too dull to capture my attention compared the genius works of Streicher. Years later, I listened tape again, and it was much much much better than my old memories. And now when I listen this LP, I must say this is my impression still. It is simple, crunchy and relatively low fidelity harsh noise wall, yet it has this "non pedal" sounding overdrive in all what happens. Making is very tasty and nice sounding, not too distorted. Not too thin. Not too processed. The moaning or howling voice is such a demented thing, when it arrives once in a while, you rarely hear such element in noise! Totally brilliant! I don't know if it's just the lack of very high crispy sounds combined with dry extra cold weather (-25 *C or whatever..), but surface noise is pretty extensive. Snap, crackle and pop is there constantly.

Maldur Atai 10"
Heavy repetition of loops. Clean sounds reverbed and delayed. Eastern themes, wibes of palestine. It's well crafted stuff with some live elements. Deutsch Nepal and such bands wouldn't be totally out of question when talking of this Lithuanian group. I would hope little more "modulation" of sounds instead of letting the same sound go on for too long, but in other hand it creates kind of epic mood. Will have to check how the CD's are!

Try listening to this album and nothing else for an entire day. Preferably when not leaving the flat/house. What at first seems boring and non eventful evolves into a truly oppressive album if given enough time and effort. It'll make you feel quite anxious and uncomfortable. The first time this album really hit me was when I was stuck in one of the many never ending queues in the London rush hour. Perfect!

I was informed LP is not cut. I had original tape on C-60, but seems like material is actually c. 22 +22mins = uncut LP. So if you hesitated to order because of that, don't!

You might like the Carlfriedrich Claus - Lautaggregat cd. Not quite as noisy as Chopin at his wildest but shares some of the same rough quality that is missing in a lot of sound poetry. Reminds me also of aktionists, Otto Mühl especially. The cd is available at least from Tochnit Aleph, not cheap but very much worth it. And it seems that the audio can also be downloaded from Ubuweb, along with other stuff that I haven't checked out. I think TA is going to release a retrospective set sometime soon?

Alga Marghen vinyl pressings are not the best, unfortunately. And the problem seems to shared by some other Italian labels as well, I guess they are all using the same pressing plant?

I didn't have Leichenlinie in mind. I don't rate that album very much at all. In it's day I can see why it had an impact but unlike for example Remember, or even In-Konflikt, I don't think it has stood the test of time that well.

Noehaem is a monotonous album and like all the best bands who employ the tactics of tedium to wear the listener down there is a lot more hidden beneath than what first meets the ear. It's one of the heaviest albums I've ever heard. Possibly one of the heaviest albums ever made.

Oh, ok, my mistake.
It might indeed be monotonous, but this is an album I liked from the first listening though. Though I believe there's a lot to hear further than the first listen.
Now that we're talking about Anenzephalia anyway: how do their other albums comparte to this?

When I say monotony I don't mean it in a negative sense, I mean it as a description of sound or style based on repetition. To me monotony is it. The fast paced cut up style noise and improv stop start jazz shit give my ears cancer of the cock. It's no good.

The best Anenzephalia I've heard is the Live in Boras CD. The last 7" Projected Void is sheer brilliance. The New World Disorder and Sender Mussen Schweigen EP's are good while Ephemeral Dawn is so so. I haven't heard Lyse or the first LP Fragments of Demise. Both of them go for mega money but people whose judgement I trust say they are quite shit so I'm not worried about not having them.

I haven't heard everything of course but my impression is that Anenzephalia in general hold a higher standard than GO on compilations.

Also, when I mentioned great GO albums before I forgot to include The Truth Will Make You Free. That one is IMO the best album they've done. If you don't have it then there's something to look forward to.

Oh, the new Anenzephalia album was announced a couple of days ago.

I see what you mean now (sorry, my brain is a bit slow today it seems). I do like some of the totally chaotic stuff, but indeed stuff like Anenzephalia has much more atmosphere and works on an different level.

Deterge - Intellect - Pummelling and brutal. Two 9 minute slabs of grinding Power Electronics with up-front vocal attacks and damaged crackling rumbles. This is just swelling with activity and movement. I need to hear more from this artist. Does anyone know who is behind this?

Swollen Korps - Erect in Blood - This was the very first release by this mysterious Industrial act. The second, "Better To Destroy A Child Than Repair A Man" which came out last year, was 2010's best P.E./Industrial release in my opinion. I owned "Erect in Blood" before I heard the other release and just recently decided to go back to it with fresh ears. Side A is two tracks that both add up to just over 12 minutes. There is a very cold, lo-fi repetition going on here. A good amount of synth action that isn't sharp (although there is some instances where bits and pieces of feedback poke around in the background) nor is it thick and rumbling, it is more in between, a tumbling static somewhere in the middle ground as far as tone is concerned. The use of victim samples is perfectly placed as are the curious and original high-pitched wailing vocals that punctuate the slow burning atmosphere. Side B is a 15 minute discussion between Otis Toole and Lucas about their case, which is very uninteresting, although it may have something to do with the subject matter on Side A but I can't be certain.

SHIFT "morose" tape
very good. It's good it came out now, since I believe upcoming split with SS will simply CRUSH, but this tape is still very good. Monolith blocks of droning heavy noise with vocals. Good length and presentation.

BIZARRE UPROAR live CD
pretty good sound overall. Includes his solo gigs and with various featuring members, which gives different gigs different feeling. It's not same thing over and over again, but each one is relevant to be on the CD!

Teater "absolutenothing" CD
People were not kidding when they praised this. Last track is perhaps little too much of test tone frequency torture, but rest of the CD, damn tasty Italian PE, including also cover of PE anthem Can't Stand That Bitchy Chick! What a sexy artists photos too. Center fold!

I guess they took a sharp turn towards pop charts at some point?

While their first three albums (Mix-Up, Voice Of America and Red Mecca) all are quite essential, for me the Cab's were also very much a singles band. Some of their absolutely finest moments were issued on 7" slabs of wax, and were conveniently collected on the Living Legends double-LP. I'd try to hunt that one down if I were you; it's been re-released on CD and is not hard to find.

After Red Mecca they went even more funky and saxophone-heavy on 2x45 before they started aiming for the dance floors with The Crackdown (still a very good album though) and Microphonies. From there it went all downhill - the transition into a commercial venture had been completed.

Hell, this year marks the 30th anniversary since I bought Red Mecca, my first brush with the industrial subculture together with TG's Heathen Earth

HALTHAN/BRANDCOMMANDO Split TAPE
Nice Halthan eagle logo. First H track brilliant, thick sound wall w/commanding vocals. Good sample placement. next 2 would perhaps have benefitted loud amps type of recording method. Last one NO REMORSE cover live and loud in bunker, very much what I like: filthy fierce and chaotic. Just like Halthan live has been at best.  
BC starts w/easy listening frequencies, loop like door going forth and back. I could listen this w/my grandmother and have a nice cup of tea. at some point feedback gets nastier creating strange mixture of hard and soft. nice idea.

The last song beats all others from this release, actually making all others sound boring. Too bad all songs are not as raw and violent.

KE/HIL LP is very good! I think the weakest moment is the Monte Cazazza tribute song, but even that is pretty good. Album as whole, I was very positively surprised how strong industrial album it is!

I'd like to congratulate them on making an album that is even more introverted and depressing than Noehaem. Whether it's as good is too soon to say but it's definitely good enough.

Two descriptions from two very different sources:

An American friend with a background in punk and HC compared it to The Normal. I can hear elements of that but it's The Normal on Thorazine to dull the bad trip.

One of the members described it as "old mans industrial" which made me chuckle.


It's BrandKommando with a K. Come on guys, this is European industrial. You know that C's do not apply.

CLUB MORAL "instrument of attraction II : Social hygiene" 10"
This is much better than the recent re-issue CD. It's not that far away, but just something hits my brain so much more than the CD. Also this has some of the most crude live recording with minimalistic sounds. B-side I have rotated much more. Dominated by angry vocals, sometimes the music itself is nearly irrelevant, but most of all it's fierce and noisy. A-side I have rotated much less, since it's more of this kind of "pre-EBM" meets sound poetry or what should you call it? Simple synth muzak rhythms with nearly non-sense vocal diarrhea on top. Good thing is, that it seems as if nobody would do this kind of stuff anymore (except Genocide Lolita covering the "Nazis of the night" found on this 10", hah!), but perhaps there are reasons for it... A-side has aged much less noble ways than B-side. Which gives kind of hint about the timelessness of good noise, compared to music that often is connected to very specific moment in history.

It was hard to find back then as well. Or rather, the label Kapellmeister was a scam meister. Jeroen Provoost who ran the label ripped off Segerhuva for 10 copies of the 10" (= 95 euros) back in 2003. I hear he's still dj-ing in Belgium, so I hope I can make it there one day to meet him in the dj booth.

Also should mention lathe of DDV appeared on De Player label recently. Edition was incredibly small (10 units) and priced quite high (270,75 euro) but seems copies moved quite quickly. I am told a 7" lathe version will surface in the very near future at a cheaper price of roughly 60 euros. Should also mention that during recent installation a collection of entire Force Mental zines was published. All copies sold out during installation but DDV has mentioned a larger edition will occur soon for those who were not present which is great news.

Currently awaiting confirmation of material to be present on Vinyl on Demand box. I can assume will be a mixture of studio and live material. With such a vast discography as well as unreleased live material it is possible that entire box could contain material that falls outside of the Club Moral Archive series on Trash Ritual. I would assume LP on Cthulhu Records is included for example. I would personally love to see some of the other "related" acts to be included such as Etat Brut, AR/TE, V-Side, etc.

We want our money back. He knows this, and has acknowledged his debt in an email this January. Since then he has stopped replying to any emails though, just as one would have guessed.

As for the Club Moral box set on VOD, that was probably the most exciting release in the 2011 schedule. I have been a VOD subscriber for all years, but I'll pass on it this year. I'm just not very keen on most of the other planned releases.

Great to see such a growing interest in Club Moral overall. I'll make so much more money when I sell my CM collection, ha ha!

AURAL HOLOGRAMS vol. I CD [Aural Hypnox]

I haven't immersed myself into the whole Aural Hypnox catalog but after a short listening at a friends home I decided to try this. I wrongly thought it was perhaps a bit too clean sounding but all three tracks has a rougher background. Intricate packaging which peaks my interest further. First track is best with its claustrophobic atmosphere and swirling melodies - reminds me a bit of MB's later works with its manipulated tapeworkings.

CLEW OF THESEUS LP
I recommend this. One side somehow brings to my mind old Inade 10". It has the ambient - but also the industrial edge to it. Other side more drone, but not only the pointless drone, but perhaps drone with aim - so to say!

Pacific 231 "1983-86" 2xCD
It's good. It is also strange. They keep mentioning so many times the 24 bit digital transfers from original loops, and then perhaps some things are made little abruptly. Like how songs are cut? Some goes perfect. Both discs ends like just all the sudden, full action still going and track is cut. Small fade or something could have been ok? Not that it ruins anything really, but underlines the nature of release being old unreleased archives being cut to relevant pieces and collected - one disc studio, another live. Majority of the studio stuff is as band mentions "full stereo". Well, one could say also: 2 track. So basically left and right channel has completely different things going on, and sound is not mixed together. Most of the stuff it works just fine, but I could imagine some tracks, with headphones, may sound bizarre with drum machine on one ear and droning noise in another...  I think best moments are among the live stuff, with vocals and all. I would recommend to those who look for old "imperfect" industrial-noise !

Blood:Circle "hyperpyron" CDR
demo cdr on new finnish noise/pe project... and does it hold the pretty high standard of bands that come from here? Well, no. In fact, most of the time, it sucks ass so bad, I wonder what exactly was the previous demo, what got KMY guys so exited?? More noisy? This sounds like lames computer done crap, with one of the weakest vocals heard lately. With bad effects on them. http://www.myspace.com/thetruebloodcircle   "Behind the mask" is probably among the hit songs, so that's on the myspace too. Rest of the tracks are not on this cdr, but take a listen to elegance of "iron human" and I would say to mastermind behind this project that it would be better to realize quick that not ALL early experiments need to go to public. Some vocal style suggest that he might not be completely serious with this, though?

The new tapes on UNREST PROD:
SHIFT - Morose - as heavy, nocturnal and defeating as always; the distinct lawnmower-like scrape that showered the listener on Bulk is now a bit more hidden, but still present, woven together with some underlying ambient almost melodic synth drones. B-side is built upon a pulsating rhythm of some kind. Harking slightly back to the dynamic harmony of the very first 7", but retaining the pitch darkness of the albums.

HUMAN LARVAE - What Lies Ahead - Another PE/industrial release from Unrest in the line with IFOTS, exploring different depths and layers of sound and dynamics; very pleasurable, highly recommended. First I've heard from this project so I can't relate to previous efforts. Will need to listen more attentively, the tapes arrived yesterday so only once so far.

And something else: LANDVARELSER - Strålning B - synthesizer harsh noise attack from member of Time Deleters, Sphynx etc. 4 or 5 tracks, distinct songs, which is positive - not just improvised barrage of noises, but structured and versatile. Quite a ride. Nice cover also. Released on the new Malmö label Sprachlos Verlag (http://www.sprachlosverlag.com). Would also recommend the AMPH tape. Andrew McIntosh's reviews made them justice.

Just got this in the mail. Not surprised to see that GPO is as much of a historical revisionist as ever. His then-darling Paula (Alaura) was also a part of the recording, and was credited on the original release of At Stockholm. Now, for the LP box, her name is gone from all credits. Classy, Gen.

RICHARD RAMIREZ - hard trainer - tape. pretty standrad Ramirez-noise with samples from some gay-porno set in a gym, solid stuff. but it´s the packing that sets this apart, comes in a jewelry-box, sweet.
DILLOWAY / GIFFONI - live at the no fun fest 2007 - LP. i know i can count on Dilloway to deliver the goods, but always thought Giffonis stuff would be boring, only took seconds to reconsider... his side on this is brilliant, swirling noise with a touch of Esplendor Geometrico. first class lp!
BOTTOMS OF BLACK LAKES - the gatekeepers of ecstacy - tape. synth/drone type of thing, not really ambient, similar to early Tangerine Dream or a more pulsating Ora, really like this tape.
CALL BACK THE GIANTS- s/t - LP. experimental droneing pieces and some catchy songs, very brittish, like something from Snatch tapes or a lo-fi Coil. gets quite a few spins here.
ALAN SILVA - luna surface - LP. fantastic free jazz from dream-team line up. it is like acoustic wall noise, brain melting!

For reason or another, been too busy with other music than noise for last few days.
BURZUM "fallen" LP - good, but not great. More balanced as album than belus, but also without the darker "hit" tracks.. Listened over and over again, but still not totally convinced. This is not the stuff how cult reputation was build, but neither the album to lose it.

Shitter Limited "nyt ammutaan ministeri pertti salolainen" 12"... I skipped this when it came out, and for a good reason. Majority of songs are pretty lame "pop-rock", with just totally obscure lyrics. Vittu Mä Tapan Sut Iiro Viinanen is still good punk track,
Shitter Limited "Anna Pillua Helena Pesola" 12", used to be too expensive back in the day, but now scored it for reasonable price. And how much better is this than release above? A LOT! They were always skilled musicians, yet here it's still leashed to serve relatively aggressive metallic punkrock. Saatanan Ryssät! Helena Pesola on  h u o r a! Pasifisti!

Liimanarina 7"s... classics!

Since it arrived I've spun it few times a night, really really good three way split. All artists deliver the goods! I like the end of the BU song how the sample arises from the chaos and gives a great kick to the end of the song!

FINAL SOLUTION - All New Power
Hateful as always, maybe a bit more Whitehouse moments than on the 7". But very enjoyable, simple layout, killer content.

Kluster - Eruption 1971 - truly, early electronic experimentalism - when Schnitzler was still with the group, before becoming Cluster - no cosmic krautrock - manipulations and treachery.

Kluster - Klopfzeichen 1971 - same as Eruption - first track is over a female German orator - not menacing - just avant-garde - this and Zwei-Osterei each include 1/2 of a 1980 piece as bonus tracks that are good experimental/instrumental noodling; not great, but competent; Zwei-Osterei has the better of the two halves, I think.

Kluster - Zwei-Osterei 1971 - first track continues where Eruption and Klopfzeichen left off, but the 2nd track is more of a freak out, percussive sounds/rhythms and warped sounds odyssey with a less difficult energy; good stuff and the most enjoyable of the three albums from '71.

I'd forgotten, thus really surprised, by the level of experimentalism involved with these three albums.  difficult, without a moment's rest.

V/A UNDERGROUND USA c-90
MSNP
Wasn't there some sort of plan to re-issue Noise War... and Americanoise? I wonder what is status of these?
Anyways, Undergound USA, is year after Americanoise, less bands, longer playing time. Woe Is Me, Strict, Orifice Training, Bacillus, Armenia, A.S.M., Depress/Regress, Bob Marinelli and more! Not everything delivers the most memorable material, yet the sheer mass of the punishment makes is great. Laying down on sofa, 90 minutes, with nothing else but choices made by Mother Savage Noise captains, it is good. And I don't know what exactly it is, but listening "average" 1996 noise comp, sounds somehow so much better than noise of 2010. I'm just about 95% sure, it has mostly to do with compression and digital distortion plugins? Anyways, bands like Woe Is Me, to ultra ugly noise of A.S.M. crudely chopped into this comp. Armenia's distracting pause-button stop&go, heavy duty noise drone of Persn...... I mean, one could ask someone to make perfect "average noise comp 2011"? If it can't be done, I guess this as uncompressed, un-edited re-issue, would be as good reminder as Tension State Of Collapsing CD set.... simply perfection found from imperfection.

Alio Die "the way of fire" 7"
Drone
If early AD was pretty clumsy ritual music, some of later works is pretty cheesy keyboard muzak. For a drone 7", this is good. I wonder if there has been extensive report of Drone label's 7"s, but that is some fine series of music. And despite many small editions and nice covers, majority of titles are available for decent prices. What I paid for this.. 5,- ? Maybe. I don't have complete series.. yet. But I guess it would be just about time to see what exactly is still missing and start hunting!

Alright, got a double tape deck last week, done with listening to tapes on shitty walkman!

Sewer Goddess - Dejection Veil (C32, Rotting Chapel): First release of Sewer Goddess (though reissue), I think. Already knew the track Reflection from the Gutter from the Manifestations on the Road to Death comp. Overall, it seems SG delivered quality from the first release onward, although it seems later releases are more focused and filthier.

The Vomit Arsonist - Reason (C30, Nil By Mouth Recordings): First the packaging: first time I really have to cut open the packaging to get to the actual release, pretty cool. 5 sober inserts (black and white) of which on one of them the text was not readable, bit pity, but by know I know what it says (I know how it will end). Black spraypainted case, black tape. All elements of the packaging go well together. Then the music: sounds typical The Vomit Arsonist stuff, synths, noise, cool vocals. First two tracks had some sounds of which I first thought it was kind of the tape hissing, hehe. Can't tell much about the Bloodyminded cover (ie how it is compared to the original), since I'm not familiar with this act. Overall a very good tape and one that I'll certainly have to listen a couple more times to fully get it.

Survival Unit - Thought Trigger Target (CD, Autarkeia): Good Survival Unit stuff. Second album I own, after Will to Zero, which I think is just a bit better, because it's more intense. Is there a mistake in the tracklist? Because it says that track 9 is Anthrax Zone, while track 10 starts with the anthrax speech sample and clearly has the lyrics Anthrax Zone in it. One of the best tracks on the album anyway.

Enjoying these two tapes quite a bit. Good, muddy industrial shit. Really like the minimalism of the Bereft tape. Is other Bereft material in a similar vein?

Also...
Ke/hil - Hellstation LP - only given this one listen so far but I like it. Some really nice sounds on here. I haven't heard a lot of Anenzephalia, but would you say this is more similar to that project than GO?

Alright, got a double tape deck last week, done with listening to tapes on shitty walkman!

For the past few months all I've had is a new Sony walkman playing through my stereo system. Had to resort to that because the two tapedecks I've bought on eBay (a Nakamichi and a NAD) have both crapped out on me with seemingly the same issues.

Junko & Mattin - s/t LP
I seem to recall reading some very negative comments about this from the esteemed forum owner. But I like it quite a bit. Sure, it's annoying and the noise has virtually no depth to it. But somehow the hyperactive atmosphere of the record suits certain moments in life. Like just now. Just pure assault on ears, no aesthetic value whatsoever. I just wish I had the balls to play it extremely loud - but unfortunately I'm way too sympathetic towards my neighbors.... And to be honest, I can't envision circumstances where I would be inclined to play both sides back-to-back.

Whitehouse - Quality Time LP
I was previously only familiar with Birthdeath Experience, which I thought was pretty nice. But this is even better, works on more intricate levels. Moods change from menacing to downright disturbing pretty quickly. And it's quite amazing how "tight" the tracks are, considering that it's not really done in a song-based form.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST

I think it was the pinknoise CD of Junko/Mattin I disliked quite strongly? LP as far as I remember is better.

Anton Nikkilä "kytkentätaulun valot" 7"
Bought this based on being finnish, being Nikkilä, featuring Taanila in some track. What should I call this? Post-punk meets minimal electronics with slow rock drive. Obscure surreal finnish lyrics. I'm more curious of "Pilottilasit" comp CDR what exposes the Helsinki underground electronics 1981-1987.

BAPTIST SKIN COMMUNITI - keyhead/redskin - tape. Very basic "wall" noise, at times it sounds like its falling apart, at times it´s pure white noise, but mostly it just drifts along with no fancy shit, yes, its good!
DEATH WORK - tape. Don´t know anything about this, looks like people spraying pesticide on the coverimage, no tracktiles. Short tracks, primitive like prime Sutcliffe Jugend, the best power electronics i´ve heard in a long time, still it doesn´t get me going at all anymore...
SEAGULL - conquering worm - 7". Short, 1 sided 7" of minimaly evolving static noise, i can´t say why i find this record so fascinating, but it just clicks. Great one! Have he done anything else?
EVAN PARKER & PAUL LYTTON - collective calls (urban)(two microphones) - LP. UK improvisation from 1972, mostly saxophone and percussion, but also some tapes, electronics etc. I swear at times it sounds just like early Whitehouse minus the vocals! Very noisy and really fantastic record!

wolf eyes/sickness:There Is A Part Of Me That You Will Never Know
-very good. has there been discussion on collaborations? my own take on them is that most  are shit and I have a strong aversion to mail collabs but I doubt this one was made face to face so there are exeptions, edwige was good too.

tunnel canary: jihad 1978-1984
jupiter larssen did a column on this in the alap rag. found a rip so I decided to edjucate myself. very good, fucking noisy compared to the noise of now and the band quit a year prior to my birth. what does that say about the going ons of 20??

enoch: graveyard disturbances

I'd say another mail-collab worth mentioning is the BizarreSSmania LP. I think it's very good example of talent being combined to show the best of each artist instead of just watering down their respective skills.

I've heard mixed reviews about the Prurient & Kevin Drumm CD on Hospital. I personally think its the best thing K.D. is connected to but I'm probably in the minority for this. Apparently Prurient and K.D. have done a lot more material together but Dom told me that K.D. is not comfortable releasing it so I guess it will remain unheard... :(

I think that was part mail, part live? I haven't heard that one myself, been searching for a copy for 2 years!

I suggest getting the BizarreSSmania asap if you can.

Listening - V/A - FILTH LP - Beastly. Too good to be so limited I think. I guess you had to quick, lucky or fanatic to get a copy...? Not generally a fan of Ramirez related projects but the Priest in Shit track is punishing. BU material is similar to the WOM Split and the Deathkey Split. And N12 does not disappoint, even harsher than I expected. Hopefully new full length will have tracks like this!

Agreed. I'm not too familiar with Ramirez's projects but on this very release, Priest in Shit delivers great, fierce noise.

What I don't get is having entire silk screened back cover filled just with the label logo. BU/Deathkey split had such too. Minor detail but still...

Bereft - Chlanna Nan Con Thigibh Aso's Gheibh Sibh Feoil (C20, Destructive Industries): Yeah, I copied that title, haha... After the first listen, I felt like: is this all? Why? Because it's a minimal recording, monotonous tracks as well. But after every listen it seems to get better. Cool vocals in the covers as well (I don't like you!!!). Funny thing, think I know more pe covers of Skrewdriver by now, than I know Skrewdriver material itself.
I heard that Malignant (if I'm not mistaken) is going to re-release the split with Sewer Goddess on CD, that's definately something to look forward to.

V/A - Tied To An Abuse (C48+C50, Nil By Mouth Recordings): Great packaging, I really like the booklet! Bought this because it has some artists I wanted to hear more from and others which I wanted to check out (always the best reason for me to get a comp.). After a first listen, I certainly was not disappointed. Different styles are represented, some noise, some power electronics, some death industrial. Worthy purchase!

Abnegate - Vassalage (C20, Danvers State Records): Good PE, good gritty filthy stuff with some nice feedback. Female vocals that remind me a bit from some of the Sewer Goddess vocals. Anybody knows whether this act is working on other releases?

Anal Barbara/Funeral Mongoloids (C20, Untergeschoss): Got this for a friend, but since the people involved are known for their other acts, I gave it a listen. Conclusion from listening to this (and other stuff) is that noisecore isn't my cup of tea really...

Just for the record, on the Metal side, stuff like:
Grave Miasma - Realm of Evoked Doom, Apocalypse Command - demo 2006, Absu - In the Eyes of Ioldanach, Nifelheim - Envoy of Lucifer, Vasaeleth - Adorned & Irridescent, Motörhead - Motörizer, Proclamation - Execration of Cruel Bestiality. All great stuff of course.

Control "deadly sins" CD - Good, yet very much in tradition of what he has done for long time. Maybe little new things could be included. Not perhaps progression, but slight changes in the sounds and how songs are build? It appears to be STRONGLY compressed. It has thing exploding quality where every layer of sound is competing which can be on the top. It's still unique, but in moment of thinking which album to listen to, it doesn't make so much difference what choice is made. All are good, but I'd hope something slightly different for change. Even if it would be.. less good?

GRIM "5eyes" tape
I'm sorry to say but Japanese grim may have experienced the same faith as for example Mauthausen Orchestra. This comeback material is lightyears behind what they used to be in 80's. Shame. Only couple good moments of percussive industrial beats with their trademark throaty vocals. Rest of material, not good at all.

DIE KREUZEN "Big Bad Days" 7"
With members of Boy Dirt Car, found this locally and I thought 5,- for the 7", I'll give it a shot! One side is kind of... ehmm grunge related rock? Other side acoustic tune. I'm no expert on this field, yet I did like it. Old 7"s do have charm in them whatever the style..

NIHILISTICS "bad...dirty...hate" LP
Scummy punk rock from '89. Used to play cover song of this with one of my old bands c. 15 years ago? With songs about hate, killing, black leather, etc.. how can you go wrong!

VMTK "sikahuora" 7"
Year 1990 in Finnish HC and this has members known (before or after) Rytmihäiriö, Uutuus, Wind of Pain, Anal Intruder, Forca Macabra etc. But this set some standards on the asshole attitudes in punk. Towards "scene" itself. Title track itself is such macho manifest and follows anti-vegetarian, anti-straight edge songs and general lyrics about killing and waving middle finger to all directions. Vegetaristi - paskaa päässä!  So when just about every turd of finnish hc/punk has been re-issued, where is re-issue of this?!?



Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: Ernpe on March 28, 2011, 07:30:53 PM
Shift - Bulk Could be my favorite one from Shift. The tittle and the cover descibes the sound very well: like a big, concrete made building. Really beautiful.

BT.HN - Her Serpent I got to know this project by the 12" released by Dogma Chase. Vitiated was indeed something very different from this (and all other previous?) releases, Her Serpent being much more pure harsh noise. Thick layer of noise covers everything while quite a lot is happening lower in the mix.

VMTK "sikahuora" 7"
So when just about every turd of finnish hc/punk has been re-issued, where is re-issue of this?!?

Just about everything from the 80s, much less from early 90s. Also some members of the band may object doing reissues or the master tapes may be lost - both of these apply eg. to Uutuus material (same era, some same members).

Halthan/Brandkommando (C40, R.O.N.F. Records): Halthan side: first track is quite noisy and intense, for Halthan, best track on this side. The others are more in the style of the Corrupt tape, but a bit less good than that tape. Last track, don't really know what to think of it. Brandkommando side: hadn't heard Brandkommando prior to this tape. Rather calm stuff indeed, but with a dark, rather ominous vibe to it. Might be worthwile to check some of his other stuff out.

I rarely post in this thread, but this had to have a mention. Extremely lofi old school PE, like Teenage Nuremberg Consumer Electronics with more vocals, Nordisk Klub is a small CPH tape label run by the kids behind the projects released. All the releases looks really good and crude. Also recommended is the Megan tape (see live footage in the video thread) and the Redflesh tape, if you're into HC Punk. I think the releases can be ordered thru Posh Isolation, Lukas of 17 years, the main guy involved in the label told be that they are building an website.

LE SYNDICAT "Festing D'acier" LP
hmm... sale speech mentions this is closest to industrial what LS has done.. but should it say closest to techno? I mean, drum machine beats that drive forward, are more common from slower tempe techno music - whatever it would be. But some beats wouldn't be out of place from some thug throwing rhymes over it. If it sounds bad, no worries. Actually this is pretty good. If you do get over the certain type of beats, suddenly there is abundance of physical noise, huge amount of distortion and later days Whitehouse type of fast delay meets sound stretching. Not by any means to be compared to early 80's Le Syndicat, but if they can come up with this stuff in 2009, it makes them much more relevant than many of the old names who have utterly fucked up, what comes to quality.

Beyond some of these French machine noise guys, latest playlist is dominated with Finnish hc/punk. Kaaos/Gadgers 7", Vox Flatus 7" (more humoristic postpunk even with Neubauten/Missing Foundation wibe occasionally), Massacre 7", Massacre split 7", Rattus "rajoitetty ydinsota", Maho Neitsyt "jne" 7", Bastards 7",... I think some of this stuff still not seen re-issues, so luckily the vinyl is in shelves! Have piled up some old finn & us hc-punk ready to go to turntable...

Nordisk Klub is a great label name. I don't know why but I associate it to Swedish/Danish porno mail-order/clubs of the seventies.

Went through a pile of tapes in the office and found

Sharon's Last Party Bayonets to Lhasa Tape


Released by ochu's kickacid release in 2007 so I guess that's why nobody talks about it. Very different from the stuff the made when Martin Bladh was a member. Violent droneing? It is pretty noise without being noise. Very organic feel and the cymbal banging could have given it a occult feel but with junkies on the cover instead of strange symbols you are left with the feeling of the dirt instead. I like it. Bayonets for Lhasa was even better then I remembered.

Will Over Matter "might of the planet eater" 2xCD
Will Over Matter "9 to the moon" CD

I think I may have said this before, and I can say it again. When you hear many people say they do "old school" or that they like "old school bands", it still is often something quite timeless. Or it seems utterly inaccurate what comes to their work. When you listen to something like MB's "symphony for genocide", it actually sounds such a.. how to say... dated, that it's simply huge task to find anyone, who would have guts to go THAT primitive, that crude.
And this is when Will Over Matter comes into picture. It's one of the bands who is so damn rude and grim, it often borders in the edge of "how someone can still make THIS?". It is the simplest oscillator boxes - not to be confused with "synthesizers" in modern sense. It's the rough clean slow beats of drum machine. It's sometimes vocals with little or no effects. Sometimes talk, sometimes kind of throaty "metal" style. Each CD is maximum length. We're talking of album being complete when disc reaches like 74 minutes limit. And some weaker tracks - just allowed to be there. Often it is not good choice, but in this case, I think it kind of underlines the roughness. The moment, when you really think what the fuck is this? And shouldn't the be some sort of effect to cover dry electronic signals. There are few moments when you could think of bastardized version of Haus Arafna at their simplest of electronic works of Beherit. Musical, yet not really. I listened these 3+ hours of stuff at once, and it is at the same time mesmerizing as it is disturbing and difficult. I would recommend with certain caution. But if you can handle it, it's really unique in current genre.

Bereft / FITH split LP
Not that these bands would be opposite of WOM, but still, from another planet. Bereft has been improving all the time. I remember the early days, when it really was quite primitive and nasty, but now, it still is, but with "professional twist" so to say. Drum machine / loops etc are heavy as fuck. Loaded with bass frequencies and massive reverb. On the top feedbacks and electronics and rough throaty shouted vocals with quite banal working class skinhead slogans. I think the moment when lyrics are in ways of "I will never be shamed to be white", to me, it sounds like singing "I'm not shamed to be man". Of course you're not. But, therefore, it would be nice to have lyrics what cover the issue of being.. well, man or white. What is the "heritage", what is it about being "working class"? Of course, I admit that PE release is perhaps not necessarily demanding lengthy political identity studies, but still it would be better than having merely words that means very little. One could think for example Slave State. With lyrics as simple as "white land - white rule", it would define many things. Or bands like Brethren, who usually discuss some specific theme, not about reducing it to mere "I'm white, I'm proud". But nevertheless, I think this could be if not the absolute best, then at least very close to best Bereft material and those who like for example fellow american's a'la Vomit Arsonist, harder side of FITH, and so on, will welcome this with open arms!
FITH is well known for what it is. It is the heavily layered and very tonal method of synths, with the kind of sound-track-ish polyfonic keyboards included. Cinematic feel is mixed with some rougher noises, but as said many times before. No dirt, no fierceness, no really crunchy. It is well put together and couple of times I now listened it, I could see more success than to most of noisier bands. It doesn't sound that much "computer made", since the transitions from sound to another go pretty smoothly and sounds themselves are well done. There EQ range goes from deep bass to highest crisp. I just hope here would be the loud vocals known from live gigs and for my own tastes - less of the tonal polyfonic synth sound harmony. People who like FITH, will like this for sure. Those who have not, well, probably not.
So all in all, in this LP, there are no surprises, but it delivers what it promises.

I think that tape sold out from the website in about a day, maybe even a matter of a few hours? The new batches of tapes are gone off the website generally very fast. I'm next to positive FPC is another Fernow project judging from the sounds and especially the vocals on the one tape I have.

A few weeks ago 4 FPC tapes came out in one tape batch, all c10s for $8. Parts 1-4 of a series. What I want to know is why couldn't all of the material been put on one tape so that more than 59 or 49 or whatever super limited number of copies could have been made bigger? It irks me to know end because 200 copies could have been easily sold and people who get the newsletter later than 5 minutes after its sent might get a chance to buy one.

interesting that Hospital Prod can get away with flittering with such things but anyone else catches shit.

Correct me if I'm wrong. But judging from the FPC artwork, the sample seems to relate to the general theme of the project. Namely the white colonization of Congo/Africa, and not as a White Power statement. Then again this could still be more than enough for the manistream media, to cause a shitstorm. If the person behind the project is the one suspected.

Regarding the releases. I have to agree with CM, I used to be really into this small/short tape hospital thing. but it has come to a point were it all just seems so cordinated. The one-off project tapes of the past works better than this IMO. I'll just hope for a nice CD reissue like the Cocaine Death rerelease and ignore this bubblegum sticker collecting bullshit

Tufthunter - Es Ist Eine..... CS
Just got this from my friend Sara. After first listen I was left with a total WTF feeling. Now after repeated listening I'm absolutely digging this. really old school primitive synth work similar to the aforementioned "Symphony For A Genocide" and other old M.B works. Some of the stuff has vocals that varies between what I imgagine it would sound like if Miss Kittin did PE and straight up demented gagging loops. At some points the rhythms become almost tribal in nature, but never in a ethno/hippie kinda way. More like a post-nuclear urban tribe feel to it. This tape still requires a lot from the listener. And I can in no way categorize it or figure out which mood suits the listen experience best. But this is for sure recommended for someone looking for something completely different

Clew Of Theseus "The Death Urge" LP (Verlautbarung)
Great drone with enough heaviniess and rough edges to resemble old death industrial at times. Layers of drones of various frequencies form a shifting weave of grating sounds. Quite exceptional stuff!

DÄMONENBLUT"Das Tor Zur Hölle" CD  Great ABSURD-ish stuff! VENOM cover in German.Sweet!

I'd also recommend both Dämonenblut 7"'s, good stuff, especially the newer one called Inquistion.

On my current playlist:

FILTH splitLP: Everyone delivers the goods in this one, especially BU, I hope that BU tracks from this, BU/WOM and BU/DK splits will be released on CD too. Only negative thing I can come up about this release is the looks, I would've prefered it to have one inlay per artist, now it's maybe too minimal.

Also before getting the worst influensa of my life I got in mail both Clandestine Blaze-Delivers of Faith LP and CB-Fist of the Northern Destroyer tape that I'll be adding on my playlist too, already knowing that both are great albums.

Control - Deadly Sins (CD, Malignant Records): the only other stuff I've got from Control is the The Cleansing CD (comp.). Compared to the material on The Cleansing, Deadly Sins sounds cleaner. Also, I've got the feeling there's an Ambient feeling to the music. Vocals seem few and mostly buried deep in the mix. Definately not bad at all, think I still should check out more Control stuff.

Sharpwaist - The Night Of And The Morning After (C20, Nil By Mouth Recordings): To start: nice packaging! Musicwise this is quite suffocating. It seems it's got a lot of vocals and the music itself also feels very 'busy', seems like quite a lot is happening at the same time, withouth being very chaotic though. The last track is calmer and maybe the best one. Think this might need some more listens to sink.

Ah yes, Armon Kuilu - I procured the CD version from FA a while back solely because of the reference to bands like Art Zoyd and Univers Zero. It's slower and doomier, more ritualistic than mentioned bands - they lack the jazz-exuberance, which I guess can be both positive and negative... The tracks never really lift the way UZ and AZ managed, but still a very nice little minialbum. Was the CD version also your release? Is there any information available about this band - other releases, musicians active elsewhere...?

GIFT - Shoah 7"

Murky German industrial from Operation Cleansweep member(s). First impression is basic and simple but I'm expecting more detail to emerge after a few more spins.

DJK - The DJK Committee 7"

More German industrial from the much lesser known DJK. A side sounds like an attempt to please the goth/EBM crow with some sort of dance hit. Pretty boring. The b side explores a more traditional style of analogue bass rumble with distorted vocals with a bit of Con-Dom quality to them. Much better. Good, maybe even very good!

I think this was probably better than their own LP or the split LP. Both of those are ok. Occasionally good, but so "standard", that in times when so much good stuff came out, it was destined to be forgotten...

Talking of "euro pe",
listened couple of times LR & Puce Mary LP on posh isolation. If this came out on Loki Foundation or such, I think fans of Ex.Order, O.Cleansweep, and such would gladly listen to it. Atmospheric, harmonic, minimalistic industrial-drone with rhythmic elements as well. It sounds to have much more common with "PE" than "drone music". I would recommend this.

Ritual Hate - Live Ritual I (Self Released (?) 2010) - God damn I love Noisecore. I don't understand why most people don't like it at all, but everyone's taste varies I suppose. Anyway, what you get here is 3 live tracks that reach just 15 minutes in length. This is raw as hell start-stop-start-stop brutality, what I like to refer to as the assembly line style Noisecore, where you can't really tell when a track stops and a new one begins or how many tracks are actually being played during each of these 3 shows. It could be 50 for all I know. The first track has the best recording quality and it is also the longest of the 3. This track also changes pace more than the other tracks giving it more of a variety from 5 second blast beat riffs chord styled slamming and grunts to cymbal crashing, bass laden doomy atmospheres. The following 2 are sharper, thinner sounding, painful. The final track is the shortest clocking in at just over 2 and a half minutes of static and pummeling drums, no breaks.

Very much impressed with this one. One of the better outputs i've heard from the PI circle, and if you add the new Ashley C album i think you have two good examples on why Denmark is currently where it's at. First part in a series of 3 LPs i think?

Jasper TX - The Black Sun Transmissions CD (Fang Bomb)
Slow moving music, guitars in the front with lots of subtle movements in the background. Gloomy and stripped down. Live Jasper TX are somewhat reminiscent of droney acts like Birchville Cat Motel, but the albums are usually more... "rich" in sound? Takes a few spins to get everything together. Great stuff!

THU20 "Bologna" CD - very nice Dutch group, with many of the "fames", a'la Frans De Waard, Guido Doesborg, Jac Van Bussel, Jos Smolders, Peter Duimelinks, Roel Meelkop.... I like the way this band does their "electro acoustic" -> still shamelessly noisy! 1991 live recording is filled with micro sounds and disturbing electronics, but when occasion comes, they're not holding back to include heavier electronics and vocals. I can see why band would not be so talked about, when during last 10 years.. I guess two albums have been released?

SOL INVICTUS "Lex Talionis" CD
Re-issue of their part of 3xLP set with C93 and NWW, with couple bonus tracks. I think this is easily my recent times top listening. Meaning how much I have listened it. Probably dozen times in few weeks? It is kind of culmination of things that are good in neo-folk. Relatively clumsy, relatively out-of-tune, but with tasty edge of industrial, with good lyrics, etc. Pretty essential stuff.

Mr.Natural / OVO split 7"
Whatever was on the other side, is shit. But Mr. Natural - I have said it before, and I keep saying it, is fucking great! Try to get over the name, and grab some of his stuff. None of it is rare. Everything is cheap and easy to get. I was missing this in my collection and even if it doesn't go into top levels of Blazen'Y'Sharp -era stuff he used to do before, it's still great piezzo colored organic noises.

This is not "joke noise", but with nice warm connection to daily life.

That Anemone Tube looks and sounds great. I have actually moved some copies from distro, so appears people do like it, but still could recommend people to check out review at SI#5 and CD from Silken Tofu! Ashley C indeed took big step forward on the CD Freak Animal put out. Originally signed him for 3"CD, with idea that he can do great 20 minutes, but when abandoned idea of 3"CD series, asked to submit full length worth as promo, and it blew me away. Even if someone may say I've put too many of metal junk noise releases lately, no way. I would say this CD takes very different approach from all the rest!

The Anemone Tube CD is very good. I've moved a good number of it as well. I'm guessing word of mouth about the quality of this release played a part.

The Ashley C CD was a very pleasant surprise which bodes well for the future.

In my opinion, this is the best, and so have said many others, but I wouldn't say any of their stuff is weak. You might especially like some of their other albums with more bassier & deeper sound!

All their stuff was re-issued as CDR by band themselves, but pretty damn crappy 72dpi inkjet graphics. Does very little justice for original vinyl. I think proper CD re-issues would be good.

Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: Zeno Marx on April 25, 2011, 07:54:49 PM
I can't talk about Einleitungszeit without being biased.  Now that Freak Animal is as recognized as it is, reissues on it would likely be the best possible scenario.

I've been working on a CD reissue of Aus der Leichenkammer for several years now.  The original push to take it to CD was to make it louder, and to obviously expose any of the fidelity that was left on the cutting room floor.  It's a very heavy, dense, low-frequency album with some interesting upper dynamics (I think it is far and away the best album from that period of exploring low frequencies).  The main complaint, all along, was that the mastering was too quiet.  It required too much volume knob during playback.  When I'd received the DAT master back in 1996, I only had a few hours, on a single afternoon, to listen to it before sending it off for vinyl mastering and plating.  I thought the vinyl mastering was the reason for the low volume, but in fact, it was originally mastered at a lower volume than normal.  It isn't the vinyl.  It's the master.  After hearing the DAT>CDR transfer, I lost a lot of interest in reissuing it on CD.  A CD version would flush out a bit more sound quality, but not as much as I thought it would.  There are enough vinyl copies out there to handle the demand, and to be honest, after having tens and tens of more listens to compare the LP to the digital master, the vinyl mastering is high quality from a fidelity perspective.  I wasn't always confident in that, but now I am.  I was also once under the false impression that a 2LP would've been better for the material than a single LP.  While probably ultimately so, the material wouldn't have benefited that much from going with a 2LP.  I'd have to check my records, but whoever I had master that record did a fantastic job.  It's definitely the most demanding material I ever released, and they did the master great justice.

The first three cassettes are still my favorite releases from them, but it might not be fair to say they are also at the height of their skill.  A couple of the newest albums are amazing in their own right.  To my ears, the two lowest releases are Kremation Gesch Lechtslos and Aus Dem Laboratorium, the former being the worst of them all.  Everything else is gold.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on April 25, 2011, 08:54:20 PM
I think there is always place for good albums to be re-issued. Even if there's still copies at reasonable price, one can be sure, there are enough interest for CD format for label to break even. Simply due fact, that not all care for vinyl. They couldn't care less if you can score 2nd hand LP for 15,- from discogs, if they can get CD for 12,- from any distributor of the genre.
There is plenty of vinyl fetishism, but I see plenty of customers who prefer CD.

Tapes are great. I remember the time before internet, when I had the CREW-ZINE magazine, and noticed info about one of their tapes. Ordered it, and pretty much instantly sent invitation to do LP. Tapes, most definitely, would require proper CD re-issues. I have no memories of what format master was, and did it get returned from plant or not, and if band got it back or not. This FA's LP was only made 200 copies, which makes it much more rare than the other vinyl.

That middle, low-frequency period of Einleitungszeit is best experienced with headphones AND speakers.  There's a lot of minutiae to hear in there, but the low frequencies are great to be felt through the body.  I usually don't care for "headphone" albums, but sometimes you can't avoid it.

DMDN "sling trip 2" CD
Perfect 80's industrial/pe. Could this be even better than PURE/RRR disc? Anyway, selected from the discography in similar way. Best tracks of some tapes. If I would have to recommend people who like what Industrial Recollections does, that you should REALLY get this one. And perhaps shamefully I should also advertise I should have time today to update FA mailorder list with this title for sale.. heh.. Anyways, Anyone who likes the 80's Euro PE should admire this. Rough, yet well done. Intense, but not falling into pointless noise.

HEBOSAGIL "Ura" tape
tape version of new full length. Should this be mentioned in Noise Rock topic? Maybe. Not exactly noise rock, not exactly sludge, not exactly hardcore or metal.. What it this? I don't know. Wild rehearsal sound quality, with obscure finnish lyrics, very well made and talented riffing. Good musicianship all over. Some has described this like fuzzy and grim mix of Unsane and Radiopuhelimet. Why not! http://www.hebosagil.com/

ICEAGE "live 2010" tape
Short noisy punk-noise from Denmark's Posh Isolation label. I think b-side gets better, short tape of ultimately fierce sound.

WAR "god made flesh" tape
C-20? Anyways, short tape from Posh Isolation which continues the path to become label best known for releasing bands with names that already been used by tons of bands before, hah! This is Copenhagen WAR which is lo-fi and grim electronics, yet also with this melodic/instrument/song method. If I have nothing better to say to compare, one could say some works of Ättestupa? Vintage cheap keyboards, rhythm but the lo-fi noise approach to music.

HUMAN LARVAE "What Lies Ahead" tape
Unrest continues to do the quality music on tape. Did I comment this before? Some parts of this reminds as if HL would have tried to approach music with SHIFT influence! Several moments of similar minimalism and effected vocals, but diversity within 6 tracks goes further and also conquers different territories. Heavy electronics from germany and project worth keeping eye on. Not sure which is better, this or the CD on Existence Establishment, but both worth to get!

Die Menschzerstörung is by far my favorite Einleitungszeit release. The first song reminds me a lot of Strom.EC - General Enemy played at half speed.  rMensch 2xlp was good too. I agree with Zeno about Aus Dem Laboratorium, it's just boring. The last 3 albums are just too much extended static blast for my taste. Same reason i stopped obsessively buying Dissecting Table in the past year.  I like the older industrial stuff better from both artists. 

Also picked up 3 of their dvd's from FA. They put on a great show. The Auranoise dvdr should probably be mentioned in the performance art thread.

Alvin Lucier - I am sitting in a room. Hadn't heard before; quite an unsettling experience. The mechanic repetition of the voice recording, and the constantly extended obscuring of the recognizable words; as if a lense between the listener and the sound is becoming more and more opaque. Either the person talking is fading away from existing world into some kind of mist, or the listener is slowly loosing consciousness. Perhaps not something I will listen to many times - or even once again; I would most certainly grow bored in the abscence of this first rather profound listening experience.

John Cage - selected works for prepared piano and vocal ensembles and other stuff. Prefer the instrumental works, never been too keen on more experimental vocal works (rambling and shouting voices all in a mess - I prefer regular concert choirs like Carmina Burana, if anything.)

Bäckenfraktur - untitled c10. First release of this Swedish project, first release of the label, Pissoar. Solo venture heavy on the synthesizers. A bit too fiddly for my taste, but certain dark and heavy sounds and ambiances he achieves will hopefully be explored more thoroughly in the future. The main tracks actually feel like intros, and some short stuff at the end of both sides appear to take off, but ends abruptly. In its brevity, a good introduction to yet another newcomer in the Swedish scene (only the last 1½ years or so have seen a deluge of new more or less interesting projects; Khmer Noir, Arv och Miljö, Blodvite, Hängd, Amph, Händer Som Vårdar, Argonaut, Teufelsdröckh, Feberdröm, to mention those that come to mind right now...).

SPK - Leichenschrei. No comment needed.

SPK - Meat Processing Section. How could I have missed this for all these years? Amazing songs.

+ various ALUK TODOLO releases - the first 7", a live tape, and the collaboration with DER BLUTHARSCH which was surprisingly good; like regular AT releases with sad pop songs played on top. Highly recommended.

A slight disappointment. For a 45 rpm 7" I'd like to hear more "instant hit" material, stuff on this record would be fine on a tape or lp. But on a 7", just makes me wonder why or how do these two tracks stand on their own. For me, they do not. Solid stuff, though, just too short to make an effort.

DMDN "sling trip 2" CD
Perfect 80's industrial/pe.

Today I listened to the DMDN Netley Abbey tape (Midas Music, 1990), and I think that most of the tape is included on the CD mentioned. It is really excellent stuff, and hasn't dated at all as far as I'm concerned. In 1990, I don't think anyone made any kind of distinction between "noise" and "power electronics", rather I think that most folks that I heard mention the tape just thought of it as a noise tape. Things were so much easier back then, heh. Anyway, a great tape, and one that a lot of folks would appreciate these days.

Wince – Vasovagal Syncope (White Centipede Noise, 2010) - I believe this was the beginning of the Wince we know today, changing from the walls found on Buried Rage and previous cassettes to well rounded Harsh Noise utilizing an abundance of metal/junk and pedal abuse. This also marks the beginning of the great WCN label. Side A begins with a sample and rigid feedback that quickly erupts into bulldozers of static. Creaking metal and, what sounds like, broken glass being tossed around in a metal paint roller tray or tin can, make their presence known quite early. Side B feels "fast" to me. It's like Noise blastbeats without rhythm. Violent volleys of crunch, effected metal and snaps of feedback that intensifies itself as the track progresses. This one can give you an anxiety attack accompanied by nausea.

Sharpwaist - Sucking from the Breast of a Castrator (C30, New Forces): Quite a different line up from the tape on Nil By Mouth (now with Kristen Rose of Sewer Goddess) and it sounds different indeed. Less chaotic, more kind of subdued, dark, maybe even a bit atmospheric. (I really feel I suck at describing this kind of music.) Anyway, not that the tape on NBM is bad, but I like this one more.

It's a pretty unique album.  More noise rock than the previous two, more "earthy".  The guitar playing is similar to Moment of Silence, but it is far less overtly electronica-influenced.  Sometimes reminds me a bit of '90s industrial metal like Ministry, Nailbomb, Godflesh, etc., though not exactly a metal album itself.

The bar is very high when it comes to SS. High expectations. A-side is hit tune for me. B side is "just" good(yeah would work better as a longer piece). Solid cut,great sound quality. I did enjoy this release a lot! however I can see what y mean. 7" is a format that needs a something very very special. Think about if there would have been SS 7"  "Snow Fell/Huorakatu", both tracks on first LP. T H A T would have been uber hit release! That kind of picks are needed for 7"! btw upcoming SS material on split LP w/ SHIFT is so good that it hurts. Epic long  stuff, just perfect for LP side!

Defiler - V.III (CDr, self-released): Good Dark Ambient/Industrial stuff. Got quite some guest-work (one track made by each: Camisole and T.O.M.B.; and J.Stillings (Steel Hook Prosthesis) did some vocals and additional sounds), but it works. The overall dark atmosphere is kept very well and rather homogenous. J.Stillings vocals are of course very well recognizable, and where I think they wouldn't fit in with every other project, it goes with Defiler. Guess he was rather inspired by SHP overall. If you're into this kind of thing, definately worth checking out.

Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on May 06, 2011, 07:09:48 AM
yes, these are good tapes. Only complaint would be, that they don't fully represent the power of original sound. For example Concrete Mascara live gig, in this tape, the end appears to be electrical cord noises and crackling sounds and vocals, but what recording failed to capture, was the massive DEEP bass frequency, what was THE dominating element of the live. I mean, the crackles wasn't just crackles, but it was the sound of bass amp nearly bursting in flames. You could feel bassy waves trembling in small space.
Recording was made from distance, with normal microphone, so there are some limitations.
Although a lot of PE does benefit from thin and lo-fi sound, sometimes also clear and in-your-face sound could reveal the nature of sounds better. Even if we talk about the crudest and harshest sounds.
I'd hope to get live recordings with proper microphones placed just in front of the amps.
Nevertheless, both tapes are good, and Sadistic Bliss new tape appears to be the best what band has done! First I thought how come they went into this Randy Yau meets vocal poetry thing, with loop/delay/vocalsound experiments, but it doesn't take long when insane sounding drum beat and feedback noises arrive. One long piece.

Lettera 22 – True Form LP (A Dear Girl Called Wendy)
Absolutely loved last years Second Sleep release from Lettera 22, but this is even better. Pretty much the same thing, but more refined and delicate. Messy but crystal clear compositions of field recordings, cassette manipulations and electronics, with manages to feel both chaotic and extremely controlled at the same time. Beautiful stuff. Highest recommendations.

Keränen – Moon Over Torrelorca CD (Ljud & Bild Produktion)
Far away from the intensity on Bats In The Attic, this one features a long and slow moving drone track. The ambience and stripped down approach kind of reminded me of Drumm’s Imperial Horizon. Boring music, in the best possible way! Got me really excited on the Keränen show here in Gothenburg tomorrow, although I guess this is maybe not what Tommi will bring to the table…

Händer Som Vårdar – Bakåtböjning Tape (Järtecknet)
Debut tape from HSV was pretty decent, but Bakåtböjning is such an improvement! Weird, claustrophobic stuff with a heavy use of loops. It has a somewhat shitty nerve to it which I really appreciate, the sounds are… “wrong”. I found it hard to find something to compare this to. Uneasy listening, well worth checking out.

Alfarmania "Hålögd insikt" 10" (Autarkeia)
Quality release from Alfarmania, well worth it's rather expensive price tag. Alfarmania is progressing towards an ever darker and more oppressive sound, and this 10" picture vinyl is a great example of that. Gloomy and apocalyptical.

Bestializer "Perpetrator Leisures" tape (Styggelse)
Brutal, ugly noise with a crude industrial foundation. Heavy and violent! This act has put out a couple of really strong tapes lately! I can recommend this and the tape on Joy de Vivre, which is a bit more industrial and less noisy.

Blood ov Thee Christ "Guilty to everything" tape (Styggelse)
A fragmented, delerious mess of crude noise, drunken, hateful ranting, recorded conversations and sheer insanities. Extremly filthy and ugly. Sometimes it is excellent, and sometimes I just laugh out loud. Definitely not tailored for commercial viability!

Capturing live recordings via the audience is very, very difficult.  It's a true craft.  Microphone placement is only the beginning of it.  Knowing the configuration of the microphones if using more than one.  Knowing the rest of the equipment.  Knowing the venue, it's gear,  and its acoustics.  I listen to a lot of live recordings, and it is not an easy thing to master.

If the goal is to capture the atmosphere, as well as the sound, it's sometimes best to create what is known as a Matrix.  It's a combination of a recording off the soundboard, or mixer, coupled with a microphone/audience recording (sometimes more than one, if more than one is available, because each microphone is better at collecting sound from particular ranges).  And it is not an easy task in itself.  Phasing, pitch matching, and all kinds of little technical nuances have to be aligned for it to not sound like a mess.  Sure, you can throw one over the other in Audacity, but you can usually tell that is exactly what happened.

And I'm not talking some lofty, studio-grade expectations.  There are a few hobbyists out there who are masters at this.  I mention these things because I would think it particularly difficult to get a high-quality live recording from a noise or power-electronics group.  A simple soundboard recording wouldn't be difficult at all, but to capture room atmosphere would be almost Herculean.

Taint - Justmeat - I've reviewed this numerous times before. My favorite Taint release.

Civilian - Unclean (TF/PE 2009) - http://purestench.blogspot.com/2011/03/civilian-unclean.html

Tortured Hooker - Tortured Hooker - An Offender's M.O. Can Change. Static And Rigid Remains The Signature. - (Hospital Productions 2010) - Great Noisecore with a very sharp and raw production. Probably the most one-dimensional Tortured Hooker release - a very acquired taste is needed more-so than with most Noisecore or any of his other releases under this name. And that's what is great about it, it is not a cliche. A satisfying blast of seemingly disjointed parts (exactly 102 of them spread through-out 3 tracks) that are actually very fitting it would be hard to picture it any other way.

Sharpwaist/Sewer Goddes - Blood Libel Cult (C30, Razors and Medicine): Death Industrial, mostly slow, but there are some more chaotic moments. Some parts of it struck me as almost melodious. Glad I still got it. One thing I don't like is how the last track just abruptly stops. Both Sharpwaist and Sewer Goddess have done that on other releases (with some tracks) as well and I don't really like it. I prefer a (short) fade out or something else that gives it a more finished feeling.

ELODIE "Echos pastoraux" LP (La Scie Dorée)

Collaboration project with Timo Van Luijk and Andrew Chalk. Mostly pretty short, fragmentaric interludes made from different flutes, horns and acoustic guitar, sometimes slightly manipulated electronically. Diverse and well made, not really "drone" as the tracks are short, but still with that occational otherworldly feel. While Andrew's recent solo works has been so-so, Timo Van Luijk (formerly Noise-Makers Fifes) is one of the few contemporary artists I actually care about.

V/A Dutch Fidelity 7", short tracks of all sorts of electronic and noise. Good stuff.

SWANS - live gig. Two and half hours of live stuff, intense. Heavy as fuck. I wish more venue would allow noise to be done like this. Maybe people could "get it", if noise show would be allowed to sound as heavy and crushing as it could be, instead of settling for micro sized PA and hus-hushing soundman complaining about feedback or distortion.

Metal!

Rhinocervs - RH02 (Rhinocervs 2010) - Rhinocervs isn't the bands name, they don't have a name so fans just call them by their record label name since it was the first of two releases this label put out at the same time as you can see here  http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-O32x7GIzOfY/Ta9RTh01RJI/AAAAAAAAACw/1vAHsGPfdFQ/s1600/Discog.jpg . I like RH-02 better than RH-01. For awhile I swore RH-01 and RH-02 were by different bands and thought that RH-02 may have been a split because Side A and Side B differ in various ways. I later found out my assumption was wrong. Side A is fast and repetitive for the most part, pretty straight forward but raw as hell Black Metal (these guys are tied in with the Black Twilight Circle, a group that includes bands like Volahn and Arizmenda among others, who have very close ties with Bone Awl). The second track is when things begin to change, it breaks down in the middle and gets completely melodic, then this melodic bridge picks back up pace until the end of the song and we are back in the ball game with a new developing sound that follows itself over to Side B and doesn't let up. Side B is great, it is definitely in line with the romantic French BM sounds - lots of melodic leads, minimal use of blastbeats that are tossed aside in favor of a punk directed drumming, and a sophisticated sound/mood - if Shakespeare was into Black Metal this is what he would write. I don't get how anyone who likes Black Metal couldn't like this. This tape has a very high ranking in my collection.

Flame - March Into Firelands (HHR 2011) - So far this is one of my favorite Metal releases of this year.  8 tracks of Blackened Thrash with hints of "War" or "Bestial" Metal in there. Fans of the genre know there are more than one type of "War Metal" and when I mention it in this case I am referring to that bands like Bestial Mockery or the Metal that a lot of older South American bangers played instead of the crazy stylings of Revenge, Proclamation or Order of Chaos type "War Metal". I would say it is like a mix of older Aura Noir, Bestial Mockery and Vulcano. You can listen to a few full track off of it here:  http://www.hellsheadbangers.com/flame/

Morrigan - Celt (Horns of Cernunos, 2003) - Fans of mid-era Viking Metal Bathory and Bathory worship will love this (this band was previously known as Mayhemic Truth). This CD never really gets that fast, it's more slow to mid-paced Metal with great hooks and really good use of Keyboards, occasional clean vocals and chants. The slower songs are sometimes refereed to as "doomy" by reviewers who don't know what the fuck they are talking about, "doomy" is a false tag in this case. The slow, chunky sections and songs are suggestive of the Hellenic BM (Greek) sounds of bands like (early) Samael, Thou Art Lord, Varathron, and Zemial. I usually like more raw and lo-fi Metal, especially when it comes to Black Metal, to me a sickening and dirty atmosphere is essential in 9 out of 10 cases. This album, no actually this band is a good exception to that rule, they make up that 1 out of 10, because although there is an amazing atmosphere burning up in there this album more about riffs and the simple but talented drumming. This CD in particular needed good production values to pull off the sound they were aiming for and it worked perfectly as it did on all the albums they made from here on out.

Taint - Piece-Meal Dissection (Taint Entertainment 1995) - I haven't actually heard a physical copy of this tape in about 6 years up until just a few days days ago when I tracked down a copy from a guy in Italy and finally received it in the mail. Side A still blows me away as it did when I first heard it, actually maybe even more now that I've accumulated a more "acquired taste" for Power Electronics. I believe that the material here could be released on a label like F&V, Freak Animal or something today and yet it was released in fucking 1995! Way ahead of its time in my opinion. The importance of releases like Misogynist Lust and Whoredom don't escape me at all, but I feel that this is such an underrated release in the history of the genre and in this artists discography. Both sides of this cassette are both disturbing pieces of very subtle and building P.E. equipped with Taint's specific signature and M.O. - pervy samples/victim tapes (not nearly as many as we would hear in later releases), feedback and metal/junk abuse.

Grunt / Cloama "Valkoinen Kuolema / Belyi Smertz", CD (Freak Animal)
Great split album, this is how PE is supposed to sound. Concept and topics here are similar to "Petturien Rooli" I believe,
namely the Finnish Civil War. Many of the tracks feature voice samples that I guess come from these times or describing them from a later date.
I would say there is a clear distinction between the respective styles of Cloama and Grunt, but they melt together really well here.
Perhaps could be said that Grunt has a little more noisier approach than Cloama, whose sounds are more analog synth based.
Do correct me if I am wrong (I find it a little difficult sometimes to properly describe the various sounds in noise and power electronics).
This album would definitely deserve a re-issue at some point, but seems like it is quite available still to this day.

Cloama "Death Certificate", 7" (Freak Animal)
As a follow up to the previous CD mentioned here, this is one good seven inch. I especially like the first track and its unplugged
approach. However, any more words from me are redundant. Get this one! It is perfect for the 7" format.

Romance "Live : Gateshead / Newcastle / Glasgow", 7" (Harbinger Sound)
I guess this is what is refered to as cut-up harsh noise? This is very good stuff, I would say a bit reminiscent of some Bizarre Uproar
material. Felt like it was very short in length, almost too short. It definitely left a taste for more.

Ennio Morricone "Sacco & Vanzetti (Original Soundtrack Recording)", LP (RCA Records)
Obviously not noise, but if one likes Morricone, this is essential. Interestingly, there are a few parts on here that has some
kind of experimental electronic approach. I would not go as far as to call the sounds "industrial", but perhaps proto-? Without
roots in the industrial music genre, it is maybe not legitimate to give it an industrial label, but nevertheless out of the ordinary
in this context. It was made in 1971.

I would be very curious to hear more unmusical electronic recordings from this period in time and earlier. If someone could
give me a few pointers it would be much appreciated.

FACTOR X "Directions" LP
Where did I get this? I guess bought from RRR while ago? There is funny thing about this, that since I heard 1994 Self Abuse compilation "Soundtrack for the end of the world", I was so blown out by Factor X on that CD, that I always bought what I could find, but even if liking it, it wasn't the same. Or as good. And just about every time, I remember that fuck, it was NATIVE X on that Self Abuse comp, not Factor X. And next time same thing happens again! And this has happened several times.
Who's Native X? I don't know. Did they do something as good as that comp track? I don't know, but at least they have the role of inspiring to get completely unrelated, but still good band releases by "accident".

So what is Factor X? Lets see:
Quote
Reissue of old Factor X tape from the 80's. Top-class crude no-fi voice and tape yuck by this much underrated UK project. A genuinely strange record. Limited edition of 200 copies. Recommended for fans of Mlehst, Schimpfluch and tape collage noise.

"A great collaborator and all round cassette scene protagonist who provided Bandaged Hand with the Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock / Factor X / AMK "Helicoptor" remix, a Mlehst / Factor X collaboration cassette and various source material contributed by Factor X for Mlehst recordings... Once a great introduction to a slurry of weird location recordings, for someone who was integral to the scene, never really talked about these days." - Mlehst.

Was his interview in old issue of Work In Progress or such UK industrial magazines? I remember I was pretty inspired about his method of physical tape collages. I mean, cutting up regular C-cassettes and taping them back together from short slices and using that as master. Most definitely also this LP sounds unlike people would do in computer/sampler assembled collage sounds. Weird, crude and disfunctional and genuinely rough.

Re-issue is simple as fuck. The original tape J-card glued on white LP sleeve. Tape label stickers glued on LP stickers. Meaning kind of 1cm x 10cm slice. It's quite unusual to have totally unaltered tape artwork as LP.

IRM "Oedipus Dethroned" 2CD (Autarkeia)
Classy reissue of this great album, now as a double CD in nice glossy, black digibox. The bonus CD is a reissue of the CDr "An act of self-mutilation is an act of freedom". Even though I think IRM has become better and more interesting since they became a trio, there's no denying the greatness of this album. I hadn't heard the CDr before, so it's really nice to be able to get hold of those recordings.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: implicitruin on May 22, 2011, 06:34:13 PM
Came to think of it since it was recently mentioned in the thread,

V/A "Soundtrack for the End of the World", CD (Self Abuse Records)
What has kept me for so long from listening to this? Don't know, but decided to give it a spin now.
Classic compilation featuring Con-Dom, Taint, Macronympha, The Haters, Aube and more.
I guess this is a pretty good introduction if one is not that familiar with all the acts participating.
The fourth track, "Ouns're Method (May 11:00 am)" by Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck has to be one of the
strangest songs. Shifting from whistle to uncontrolled screaming to folk melodies to dog barks to
frog's croaking in the background to obscure, disturbing vocals and more... The fuck? Vacillating from
occasional hilarity to complete insanity, that in the end leaves you kind of dumbstruck.

Allegory Chapel Ltd. "Trip", TAPE (Sound of Pig)
The first side of the tape is one single, long track. For a large part driven by a sparse bass loop with
lots of spacey sounds on top of it. Quite meditative in a sense, or ritualistic if you like. A pleasurable listen.
The second side has shorter tracks, more harsh and intense, and a greater use of samples. There is a heavy
focus on loops, especially on the final track, both in terms of samples and other sounds. I suppose that the title
is related to being under the influence of psychotropic agents and the sounds being a reflection of that.

Allegory Chapel Ltd. "Confirmation", TAPE (Sound of Pig)
This is a tape with much variation. Sometimes a lot heavier than "Trip", noisier with an industrial touch,
sometimes almost 1980's synthpop style in terms of rhythms. At times it's difficult to discern what is
sampled and what are original compositions, but it doesn't matter at all. In this case it has given several
tracks a cinematic feel, like for example the first track on side B. Originality and greatness are not necessarily
equivalents, but on "Confirmation" they definitely do coincide.
What other releases by Allegory Chapel Ltd. are recommended apart from these two tapes?

Corpuscle "Loam Drape", TAPE (New Forces)
Neat, short tape of harsh noise with frustrated, screaming vocals. Some calmer parts but mostly intense.

*BT.HN / Sistrenatus CDR good stuff. Perhaps better than their albums?!

*BODY CARGO "wasted flesh / recycled" 7" good again! Better than stuff before or maybe it's that 7" allows repeated plays to really get into material?

*GEROGERIGEGEGE "sexual behavior in human male" 7". Finally got the vinyl version, and as far as I know, completes my Gero 7" collection to as complete as it will ever be. I don't expect to find Live in Tokyo Gay Center acetate (ltd 10) or Ai-Jin flexi (25 remains?).  Now I regret strongly I didn't buy Showa LP from Osaka record store when I saw it for 70usd. It's not that good, but while being just couple steps away from complete, sometimes little collector mentality hits in.. hah.. This 7" is punk rock meets experimental sexual audio. No noise.

I've been really sick the last few months, which is why my barely noticeable presence has decreased further.  So apologies to any who care.

As I've been trapped in bed most of the time I've been able to dig into a bunch of music...

Chris And Cosey: Wow... I figured after Pagan Tango it would all be shit, but thanks to a lucky local used CD store score I have 3 of the 4 "Library Of Sound" discs, and 3 of the 4 "Electronic Ambient Remixes" discs... while not earth shattering, I have to say this stuff is really great more or less spacy ambient music.  All have been consumed at low volumes so I'm sure to be missing dimensions, but they have been sitting at the tops of my heavy rotation mountains.  Will without a doubt NEED to track down the two discs I'm missing.

Migrations In Rust: Everything... just masterful composition and beautiful pacing... he crams so much into so few minutes, it's really incredible.  I'd love to hear a full 60 minute chunk from him.

Haters, The - Breakthrough 7": This is technically a David Jackman solo 7", and it's JUST the beautiful sounds of shattering glass.... any speed.. pure heaven... file it with the first Sudden Infant 7"...

Experimental Audio Research - Mesmerised CD: Skip all the new hipster "retro synth" fake kosmisch bullshit and get this... legit drifting spaced out bliss... Spacemen 3 fanatics obviously need this.

Also ALL Dead Can Dance and The Cure albums.... over and over...

Ok back to bedridden hell...

Nicole 12 - Black Line
Obsessive, eerie, mind piercing; simply amazing album. Sometimes very few things going on, yet the atmosphere is thick as ever. Production is is a pleasure, I rarely comment on these matters, but here it is a real pleasure to ears. Each layer of sound is clear and 'sharp', adds so much to the atmosphere. Wrinkly Bliss is one of my new fav N12 tunes, keep playing it over and over again.

Dub Buk - Idu Na Vy!
War hymns for the summer. It is satisfying to find these bands, even though this might seem just another east european black metal band, but I beg to differ. Slave Ukrainji!

That's funny, I just got the Pagan Tango CD this week.  It has a few interesting moments (I'm amused by how much "Take Control" sounds like an EBM track), but I agree it is not the greatest.  The monkey call on "Go-Go Latino" is certainly cringe-worthy!


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: GEWALTMONOPOL on May 26, 2011, 07:38:08 PM
They were signed to Play it Again Sam at the time which could explain their leanings towards a more EBM sound. I think Pagan Tango is a fucking awful album. The album before that, Trust, is much better and sounds even more EBM. The album after PT, Musique Fantastique, I recall being good. We're into the early 90s by this point and I think they released one more album as Chris and Cosey called Skimble Skamble plus a remix album. From a once again distant memory both were decent. Then came the inexplicable name change and apart from seeing an extraordinarily dull concert in 2003 I've heard nothing from that period.

Xenophobic Ejaculation – Must Be Ready / Hang The Nigger (Assembly of Hatred, 2010) - "Must Be Ready" is apparently a cover song from the old Finnish RAC band Mistreat. There is some actual rhythm to be found in this cover song which is something we also heard XE do on the Goatmoon split, but this time around there are no drums but rather some bass guitar (? or synth) with the usual undilating feedback and strong vocal attacks. B-side is probably another cover song by the same band but I can't be sure (their song was titled "Hang the Scum"). This track consists of a clean mid-range tone and rasp screaming and pretty much stays this way for the entirety of the track until the very end when some effects carve into the vocals and the steady tone gets higher and eventually dies down.

Nicole 12 – First Dance Of The Spring (Freak Animal, 2011) - I am going to do a larger review of this on my blog so I don't want to get too into it here. At first I was thinking to myself "I wonder why he is making two separate releases instead of one longer one?". In terms of sound the 7'' seems like it would be appreciated more by people who's favorite Nicole 12 album is the Substitute LP, while Black Line has a sound that harkens back to the older material in Nicole 12's catalog. Whatever the reason may be you can definitely hear some differences.

S.T.A.B. Electronics - Born for Righteous Abuse and Temple of Self-Disgust tapes
First time I've listened to this project and I think it's good. After one listen each, I like the first tape more but I'll definitely be giving both of these repeated listens.

Sadistic Bliss - III tape
This kind of stuff does nothing for me.

Will Over Matter - Seven Impulses tape
I was somewhat distracted while listening to this, but I remember liking the weird vibes. Maybe a bit too long in parts, would like to see this project try some shorter track lengths on a 7" or something.

Male Compliments - s/t tape
Really good. Intense vocal attacks, really like the short reverb/delay used on them. This tape is gonna get played a LOT. Unfortunate that it comes in a fucking plastic bag. Goddamnit I hate that shit.

Neurosis - Sovereign lp reissue
Not their greatest material, but still good stuff from around the Times of Grace period. Glad to see that this band's backcatalog is slowly getting reissued on vinyl. Essential band for any fan of heavy music.

Arckanum - ÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞÞ lp
I know a lot of fans of the original trilogy would freak out at this statement, but I think this album might be his best work. Songs are crafted very well and the whole album just flows perfectly.


Title: Re: PLAYLIST
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on May 27, 2011, 04:40:43 PM
Few comments for messages above. I've seen couple of times mentioned N12 "Wrinkly Bliss": it's Wrinkly Bills ;)

STAB Electronics, I agree the first tape is better than 2nd. I think the best solution would have been to simply combine the very best of 2 tapes in one, and re-record and use the remaining ones later on somewhere. I think the original promo was one long piece, which was divided to be 2 tapes. It was good choice, but 1 tape with weaker material removed would have been better.

And now, the Alfarmania new pic 10", very nice! There no big surprises, though. One side to my ear sounds close to Con-Dom's "Holy Bible" 2nd track, with less up front vocals and some physical sounds thrown in. I like the eerie and distant sound of recordings, which has kind of feeling Anenzephalia have had in their live stuff. Nothing is "loud". Nothing is "in your face". It's not really distorted or fierce, but muddy, echoing, distant, gloomy industrial-noises and power electronics soundscapes. It's good follow-up in the catalogue. 20 minutes of playingtime already got several spins.

Decided to pop the first S.T.A.B. Electronics release in with all this talk surrounding it. Personally there isn't one track on either S.T.A.B. cassette that I dislike. I agree that the phased vocals in some of the tracks was a bit much like on the title track for Born For Righteous Abuse, I also agree that he should have just released on larger LP.

Funeral Mongoloids – New Wave Of Mongoloid Heavy Metal (Self Released, 2006) - This is the first FM release. The tracks on this one are more Noise oriented than on later cassettes/CD's, 80% of the tracks have such destroyed and effected sounds that it is hard to even tell if there is a Guitar present or if it just some loops, pedal work, whatever. Lots of cheesy samples opening each track or rather each set of tracks (72 tracks in total smashed into 10 longer pieces). A lot of pace changes too, most songs are mid-paced which is another difference when compared to FM's other material and Noisecore in general.

Funeral Mongoloids - Fuck is Best When God is Dead (Filth & Violence, 2010) - A clusterfuck of sounds forming 40 minutes of one-take, no edits Noisecore. Side A is a static mess of Noisecore with grumbling vocals and the usual Noisecore abrupt-tempo-change-with-a-drum-stick-count-down, waves of hissing cymbals and fast snare blasts, effects, goofy leads, etc. Side B isn't much different but the riffs are more discernible in some places. This is probably the best FM release (not a huge surprised considering the label) and the album which I would suggest a newcomer to start with.

Waste - Demo (S.H.I.T., 2010) - Noisecore from Canada's S.H.I.T. Sydney's Holiest Independent Tapes label. Murky tape noise and fast, augmented grinding Noisecore blasts effected to shit.

Shift - Morose (C30, Unrest Productions): first listen, will need more listens. Side A is quite calm, Side B is harsher. For now I prefer Side B.
Got this together with the Shift/Sick Seed LP on the Silken Tofu fest, but that LP needs more listens to say anything about it. SS side skips in the beginning though, seems like there's a small bend in the LP, can't even see it, but it's enough to make the needle skip unless I heighten the weight. Put it under a pile of LPs now, hope that'll help, but I'm not certain...

Genocide Organ - Under - Kontrakt (CD, Tesco Organisation): good stuff. I like how GO has both more extreme tracks and calmer ones, also like the vocals, which are less screamed than most PE, but sound kind of gruesome due to the effects used. GO also sounds cleaner than a lot of other PE, to me at least, which makes it sound rather cold. Should compare them more, but for now I like this album better than Leichenlinie. (Note: these are the only two GO releases I own, and have heard, up to now.)

SHIFT / ANEMONE TUBE 7", listened this maybe 5 times ! One side heavy straight forward, another heavy with shifting layers. In a way, brutally simple, but also complexity to go beyond minimalism.

Spacemen 3 - Sound Of Confusion cd
17 minute version of Rollercoaster that might rank as one the best recorded songs ever. One of the few tracks I can listen to endlessy without getting tired of. Drugged out rock bliss.

Taimour Abdulwahab cs
Gothenburg harshnoise. Was for sale at merchtable at the last night of Utmarken without any info. Shitty low dubbing that in some way suits this well. Sounds like a 8th generation dub of "insert any Incapacitants recording here" just buried under loads of tape mud and volume needs to cranked up high for best result. Nice stuff for what it is and I can always appreciate something that comes close to sound as it was buried in the ground in the mid 90's and now digged up, and I mean that literary. Thumbs up!

MANGLED CLIT - Purveyors Of Cruelty cs [Slaughter Productions]
American gutter/xxx power electronics from the 90's. Raw, funny and entertaining. The noise is beyond primitive and sounds like mangled tape going from first to last track. It's damaged. Lyrics are beyond. Mangled Clit would fit perfect for Industrial Recollections next to those Streicher reissues.

LR - Exile LP (Posh Isolation)
Absolutely gorgeous soloalbum from one half of Damien Dubrovnik. Clean and "numb" sounding electronics with a cold feeling, sound being somewhat reminiscent of the recent and also very good LR/Puce Mary collaboration LP. Nice textures and a mellow and sombre touch which i really appreciate. Occasional vocals. PI tapes can be hit or miss, but the vinylreleases is obviously where it really, really shines.

Implicit Ruin CDR
First demo of new Gothenburg project, released in late 2010 but i just revisited this again. Full throttle synthnoise, first i compared this to Keränens Bats in The Attic since i got them around the same time, and it's maybe not too far away in sound? Hectic, a bit all over the place, energic noise attack. The recording is too long to keep my interest going all the way, and much of it being improvised, some parts could have been cut down to give this a better flow i think. Still, for a first recording, this is impressive. Debutshow earlier this year was a bit different, and sounded more like power electronics.

Defiler - V.III (CDr, self-released): Good Dark Ambient/Industrial stuff. Got quite some guest-work (one track made by each: Camisole and T.O.M.B.; and J.Stillings (Steel Hook Prosthesis) did some vocals and additional sounds), but it works. The overall dark atmosphere is kept very well and rather homogenous. J.Stillings vocals are of course very well recognizable, and where I think they wouldn't fit in with every other project, it goes with Defiler. Guess he was rather inspired by SHP overall. If you're into this kind of thing, definately worth checking out.

Defiler is an amazing project for sure!

agreed 100%.  "V.III" is a great disc, and i'm very much looking forward to the MURDEROUS VISION/DEFILER 7"...


Anyone know how to track this guy down for an interview?He seems pretty hard to get a hold of,Iam pretty new here and I dont have a Facebook account but I was fortunate to track down his V.III cd and would like to interview him for a mag I am working on.Any help would be great!

I recall it was collaboration made in-person sessions. Not mail..
It is a great 7". Of course, when both artists are into sharp and clear, often with digital in-you-face sound, CD single would be perhaps doing the most justice for the aimed perfection of the sound.
But concerning length and style, 45rpm 7" to me sounds great. And most of all, very healthy in times of muddy and clumsy noise releases.
Of course some prefer HIV infected rusty mora, but it's good for a change to get total stab in the face with sharp & clean surgical instrument.

Family Underground - Un tratto di malinconia / CD / Turgid Animal / 2011

Just got this, If recent offerings from this long running CPH outfit (this being their ninth studio album) has showed a leaning towards a more industrialized sound. This could be said to be the band's first proper Industrial record. The drone pieces of the past are still present but in a more controlled and subtle way, adding even further to the psychedelic experience, and tying together 5 harsh industrial tracks. At times this will remind you of Whitehouse, Godflesh and more than anything else TG, complete with screamed desperate vocals and harsh oscillating synths. The disc flows extremely well and this together with the unorthodox artwork invokes an almost soundtrack like atmosphere . I urge everybody into oldschool industrial not to let the bands background trick you into not giving this album the attention it deserves. I'm extremely proud to be featured briefly on this release, and assure you that I'm being as objective as possible when I say that I can't recommend this enough

Arv & Miljö "Stenbergapyromanen", TAPE (Posh Isolation)
Second tape from this Swedish act. Concise and to the point tracks that never keep on dragging and I think that is
a major strength here. What we are being served is straight harsh noise with feedback, junk and other electronics.
The vibe is primitive and I appreciate that. It struck me, were voice used to create noise on the third track? Sounded more
"organic" than something generated by an electronic device. Also, the "melody" on the fourth track reminds me of something,
but I cannot seem to place it. Looking forward to hearing more.

Shift / Sick Seed "split", LP (Freak Animal)
Shift delivers utmost crackling destruction, heavy to the core. Later the track moves into a more atmospheric, but equally
oppressive, atmosphere. Sick Seed continues the other side with material that indeed fits that of Shift's contribution.
A nauseating aura all over, survival of the fittest in an inherently sick world... Seems also to partly be a take on
"The Most Dangerous Game"? The cover art, in junction with the lyrics to Shift's "Everything you are will be destroyed",
made a nice parallel in my head to the final parts of the film "Melancholia", or perhaps the ultimate fate of Earth and the Sun,
the advent of an almost inconceivable demise. This is one hell of a split for sure.

MILITIA "power propaganda production" CD
Good! It has basically all the elements of Militia. It has the powerful and complex metal percussions, it has the simple loop patterns of melodies as well as rhythms. It has ethnic elements. It re-visits some of the classic Militia tracks in form of sampling sounds of them.
It is good, yet also one can always complain about certain synthetic qualities of clearly being recorded and edited with computer technology. The lack of warm overdrive and saturation what made the early masterpieces such amazing. Still quality and style something nobody does.

That's what I figured but I wanted to make sure. We talking about Kakerlak? If so, personally the only material I have collected over the years is the split with Macronympha, Unsafe Vitality and now this new TF/PE release. I've never had a huge interest in this artist, and I honestly don't know why. I didn't like Unsafe Vitality at all it was almost purely Walls being adjusted here-and-there. The Macronympha split was good, though it had great dynamics and a strong atmosphere on Kakerlak's side. But I have to say, with this new one everything has been stepped up ten-fold. It's an amazing cassette. So I guess I could only suggest that split with Macro and this new tape on TF/PE which blew my mind.

Shift/Sick Seed split LP (Freak Animal): Despite the technical problem with my copy, it's definately an interesting release. Shift has a good balance between heavier and more atmospheric parts. Very crackling sound, not exactly comparable to any other noise/pe distorted stuff I've heard already. Sick Seed: caveman electronics is a good description, although the part with the sample about the human population is very atmospheric in fact. I liked the The Great Corruptor LP, but it seems to me this project is getting better.

Now with comments.

Several weeks back I drained my local second hand record shop dry of all their vinyl goodness. To get to Snu-Peas, you have to wade through the festering shithole that is Boscombe - full of street drinkers, angry Big Issue salesmen and toothless skanks who I fortunately could not hear when approached due to wearing headphones.

Bauhaus • The Singles 1981-1983 • 12”

I love goth rock and post-punk. The way it is produced; the emphasis on the toms, the reverb, the eerie overtones, the overloaded guitars, the simple riffs…. all classic ingredients that worked for many bands of that era. The record comes in a smart and simple gold embossed on black sleeve.  It is only 6 tracks, but you have to remember this was only compiled over three years. It does not compile anything from In The Flat Field or associated singles before and after it, which have some of their ultimate anthems. Why you would start a singles collection past this period of time is beyond me. However, it contains some mandatory classics that the band is renowned for. A good start for the curious, but in terms of quantity I would suggest seeking the Crackle compilation instead. I was never into the Bowie cover, but that is just me.

Bauhaus • Burning From The Inside • LP

Great title and innovative packaging - a smart black window sleeve for the insert within and picture sleeve image of the lyrics scrawled onto paper and postcards. An exquisite package for the real fan - get this on vinyl. It begins where the Singles compilation left off with alltime favourite She's In Parties, this time the full uncut album version. The sound quality seems infinitely better and crisp than the compilation for some reason. The album is bizarre in nature (“those indians wank on his bones / on his bones those indians wank”) and ridiculously catchy. Despite some of the sing-songy tracks it is still a dynamic cut of goth that switches between total madness to calmer pieces incorporating piano, guitars, saxophone, synthesizers, etc. The B-side picks things back up with guitars blasting waves of distortion on Honeymoon Croon and the downtuned despair of the album’s title track. BFTI is not as dark or heavy as the albums prior to this... but there is only one Bauhaus. This is one that will grow on me.

Siouxsie And The Banshees • Dear Prudence • 12”

I have never really cared for The Beatles and I probably never will. But I do care for the queen of goth. This is a nice cover though, but not really worthy of a standout single? The 12” version of this has an additional track on the B-side when compared to the 7”, but this also means a gap on the A-side where a track could be. The original B-side tracks are decent too, showing the band’s experimental unhinged side. Tenebrous goth.

Napalm Death / Coalesce • In Tongues We Speak. • 7”

The oddball of the vinyl haul. It is pretty good. Napalm Death’s sound is what lurks between classic albums like Scum and the death metal material they are doing now. Their tracks are of course heavy and fast with crunchy riffs and pounding breakdowns. They still have the maniacal high pitched screams, thank fuck! Coalesce seem to be just-another-hardcore-band but these tracks are decent, especially when you consider the sea of crap hardcore bands out there. When pitted against the Napalm Death tracks though, they get crushed.

Napalm Death / Coalesce • In Tongues We Speak. • 7”

Listened CD version of this other day. Was 2nd hand item in my shop. I was far from impressed. I basically have not really gotten into Napalm Death after 2nd LP. It seems too "normal". Too safe in every way.

playlist includes:
Apostles "Hymn To Pan" LP. Their 8th vinyl album, damn! It's not as good as some of early. This has also some experimental instrumental tracks, but mostly the demented anarcho-punk-folk-rock what they were known of. 4-track recorder, busy melodies, charming out-of-tune singing with always so brilliant english accent.

Empire Falls - 7"s and some CD's. USA hatecore. This band has just about zillion of releases, varies between punkrock, fast hardcore and metallic muscle hardcore. Pissed-off angry lyrics. They play also plenty of covers, from Misfits to Negative Approach, to AC/DC to Skrewdriver, to Antiseen and GG Allin and so on. At best, it's killer. At worst, still listenable. On Antiseen split 7" they actually beat the Antiseen side. Metalheads may get interested by listening "Crushing Rainbows" comp CD track "why has hardcore turned gay".

Boy Dirt Car "Familia" LP
BDC is doing what they do well. "resurrection" CD with long ambient jams was not really that interesting, but this is like old approach of band just updated into modern technology. It's still harshly made, crude and free of technical highlights, yet you clearly sense it ain't early 80's, but much much later.

Mz.412 "Infernal Affairs" CD
If I would have to point out what exactly I find lame in "black industrial", it might be this. In some ways, occasional good moments try to give impression it has good thing to offer, but in reality this looooooooooooong album is such a computer generated digitalia, no amount of cinematic horrorscapes can insert "infernal" atmosphere.

Militia -new CD...
did I comment this? Anyways, more listening, it's good album!

Beherit demo tapes vs. "At Devils Studio 1990"
Listened the early demos and 7" material, as well as 1992 promo, just to be able to say whether the new LP/CD/tape of unreleased 1990 album is good or not. And conclusion was that yeah, it's nice, but 26 minutes with couple instrumental rehearsals included, I wouldn't necessary loudly advertise it has "real debut album". Sound wise it unfortunately is behind both, the demos that made the core of "Oath of black blood" and far away of supremacy of Lord Diabolus recordings in 1991 which includes 2 of the same tracks of this unreleased album. For fanatics, obviously a must if you want once again hear the songs...

Autopsy "Torn From the grave" comp
Not really perfect compilation, but still gives indication unlike just about everybody else in death metal scene, Autopsy never became shit. Lets see what happens with the new album...

Ashley C - Timeless Reality CD (Freak Animal)
It's been awfuly quiet about this one for some reason, which is a shame since it's a very good one that really deserves more attention. Wasn't heavily into earlier Ashley C outputs, but this is a huge step up. Tender and at the same time gross junk mayhem, somewhat stripped down in it's approach but with enough stuff happening all the time.

Lust For Youth - Solar Flare LP (Avant!)
Finally an full LFY album after several tape releases during the last few years. Avant compared this to Cabaret Voltaire, Absolute Body Control and New Order and i guess that's not totally wrong here. The tape mess and overall weird sound quickly destroys the "cold wave" tag, this is too messy and noisy for the minimalism och coldness of that genre. Still kind of poppy, direct songs with in some cases a very strong hit sensibility... A few tracks here i could live without, but overall it's a nice debut album which comes highly recommended. Blows that Contrepoison 12" Avant released at the same time completely out of the water.

Skinmask - Reinstallment of Harmony (3"CDr, R.O.N.F. Records): Nice first release for this project. Some parts remind me a bit of Halthan and Grey Wolves. Vocals are rather buried in the mix, which I think fits very well in the whole sound. Cool artwork as well, kind of classic 'artwar' stuff like for example Grey Wolves used to have. Nothing earth shattering special, but I'll most probably keep an eye on future releases.

Brandkommando - Changes (C60, Nil By Mouth): A side is rather laid back, calm electronics, nothing really extreme. I actually like this, interesting to hear how this works, while actually using the same elements like most of the more aggressive stuff. B side is harsher, some good vocals. One track with kind of overwhelming feed back work, which works in itself but seems to stand a bit apart from the other stuff. Third track on the B side seemed a bit boring though. Overall not bad, but I wasn't fully convinced. Might have to give it some more spins though.

Libertinage - Quick Cum (Biteworks, 2007)
Haven't popped this in in ages. Domineering, piercing feedback while caked in static crunch intensifying itself, sometimes cutting off and leaving you with more lonely, undefiled feedback. Vocals seem to be there but very buried and happen during a couple of random moments and comes in small doses. Expect Taint more than Mania.

Clo Goelach – Forced To Choke   (Klaustrosignal, 2009)
Clo Goelach's best material is to be found here. The title track, "Forced to Choke" and the quick stammering of "Failling Indigo/Sticky Hole" are my favorite Clo Goelach tracks and they can be heard on this album or on the collected work titled Baltic Filth released last year and also contaings his Streetwhore material which isn't too great. What you can expect from Clo Goelach doesn't share many characteristics with his newest project Body Cargo, with the exception of the dragging and sluggish heaviness. Clo is far more violent and direct with the pummeling of his fans. Tracks are mainly based on swelling walls and brazenly direct vocals and some underlying droning static. Other artist with this sound who immediately pop into my head is latter era Deathpile, Slogun and maybe some Organized Resistance/Brethren material.

Whitehouse - New Britain (Susan Lawly CD re-release, 1982/1996) - I'm sure I don't need to give this a thorough one since we all have it. To me it is a perfectly cold and provoking Power Electronics album. Tight mixtures of feedback, mid range droning static and crunchy low-end with Whitehouse's signature processed vocal style (well, at least it was a "signature" up until around GWD). Favorite tracks for me are "Viking Section" because of the strong feedback and thin hiss, "Roman Strength" which I think exhibits one of Whitehouse's best vocal approaches, and you can't help but love the Hitler opener. And "Ravensbruck", a track that kind of sticks out on this album because of the barely audible pulsations buried in there along with its short bursts of bass moments which, like everything else here, gets stabbed into by sharp feedback leading way to stuttering vocals.

Mauthausen Orchestra – Host Sodomy (Aqulifer Sodality, 1986) - Not an absolute favorite of mine from MO which is my favorite P.E./Industrial artist from the old-school, just for the record. However, this piece of work does rank very high up there in both the MO catalog and the Power Electronics oeuvre. This tape also marks the ending of the greatest time period in which the greatest Industrial artist made his greatest work. Host Sodomy covers a good amount of ground and drags the listener around with building and toppling towers of noise. The typical MO synthesizer exploration is still here but with added power. Loops became a seemingly important piece of sound to Manthausen Orchestra just a few years before this cassette, and Zoppo knows how to work with them to great effect. Although I've heard that some of these older cassettes may have stolen from other artists? I know that later material put out by M.O. used other Noise artist work at times but I would love some clarification as to some of the material on these older cassettes.

Bizarre Uproar - Lily the Flesh (Filth & Violence, 2010) - Another one everyone has probably heard by now so no use to really go into it much so I'll just say a few things. I know a lot of people say this reminds them of Clinic of Torture. While there are some instances where this seems to be the case I am reminded more of material that Taint recorded early in his career on cassettes such as Prey and Piece-Meal Dissection. A very creative use of sampling combined with compressed and cloudy Industrial racket. BU's cassette is a bit more droning and hazy than the Taint tapes but if you listen to them back to back it is hard not to hear the comparison.

Body Cargo – Flesh Waste / Recycling (Autarkeia Vinyl, 2011) - I've been a fan of Body Cargo since the beginning and it seems as though each release, even if it was recorded at an earlier date, makes complete sense in the sequence in which it is released. Everything that makes BC an original product, a threat, is here but with a greater emphasis on subdued aggression. I was so pissed that the new needle I got for my record player seems to be fucking up my records because now I have to wait to hear this again and to hear any of the 10'' which I'm extremely excited to hear. Both should be reviewed soon on the blog.

Absolute constant rotation the last couple of day. Truly a great record. One of the most disturbing and uneasy listening experiences lately. And for sure one of Dilloways best. Last track which is ultra dirty subtle synth loops is a perfect way to end the record. Can anyone point me in direction of more Dilloway(or other artists) in this vein

This past weekend was all vinyl all day.

Third Door From The Left - Face The Firing Squad VOD lp
Meh, it's ok. The TG comparisons are especially evident on the b-side.

Sigillum S - Organic Skyscrapers & Occult Wastelands 10"
Enjoyable if a little forgettable. Not one of my favorites from them. Enjoy more shock horror soundtrack stuff.

Sat Stoicizmo - Jacati Tijelo Sportom sslp
Absolutely love this record. One of the best 20 mins of music ever.

NWW - TPM 2xlp 2001 rerelease
Aside from being warped to hell when i bought it this plays perfectly as a followup to the Sat Stoicizmo. Another 20 mins of frantic drumming and cutup.

Mynox Layh - Intra In Caelum lp
Another one of my favorites. The best CMI band ever that was never on CMI.

Tapes during the kitchen-renovation:

Maniac Cop "Stalks the living to feed on the dead" (Hatband) - laidback and slow moving outstretched sounds.
Mania "Miserable disposition" (HHR) - good, but i'm pretty tired of this style of noise. favorite mania still is last track on ultra-negative.
Laxative Souls "Twist and decease" (LXSS) - too long tracks, has not really stood the test of time for me.
Lashtal "Thoum aesh neith" (Nekrophile) - from impressive to embarrasing.
Dieter Müh / Balinese Beast "You are playin' like a fuckin' pub band 4" (The 7.17 From West...) - appearently done for the int'l record store day. good loops and dark dronescape from DM and rubbish from BB.

yes this lp is more complex and varied than his other releases, having different cuts in each side instead of one long drone track and featuring even spoken vocals at parts, some left field recordings specially water and crying baby?, buried melodies... some parts reminds me a bit of the softer side of m.b. - still sounds like Lussuria but you can tell he put more effort in this than the tapes.

Concrete Isolation Box - Iesus Homo (CDr): Third release from CIB. This time with more shorter tracks, but again some good raw power electronics. Last track has some (bas)guitar in the background it seems, which gives it a nice extra variation. Seems the project is little known, but I think it deserves some more recognition.

Kanibal Hymn - Brompton Cemetary (3"CDr, Cthulhic Dawn Productions): got this in a trade together with the CIB release. Two tracks, 12 minutes. Kind of ritual/ambient stuff. The first track sounds a bit like ritual/ambient - power electronics mixture, the second track is more dark ambient. First release I heard from Kanibal Hym, but I might want to check out some more, 'cause this is pretty good.

Apart from that, some other stuff like Fields of the Nephilim - Dawnrazor (great!) and Sophia - Herbstwerk (also great! don't know too much about this kind of neo-classical/martial stuff, but I can't imagine it can get much better than this, haha).

Toukaseibunshi - Meta-Inorganicmatter Meta-Newlon on PSF Records

Impressive album of good variation, all maintaining a consistent high quality.  "Glace 2" is a full-on power-electronics assault with an 80's cassette feel.  "Enthsiate" is a strong industrial, quasi-percussion piece.  "Glace" is a long minimalist track of solid caliber with massive metallic noise swells.  This album might be too varied for some, but it delivers throughout the listen.  I'm impressed, and I know I'll come back to it more than a few times.

"The Ligeti Project" is a very nice little box. Haven't listened through it all yet, but the compositions on the second disc fascinated me a lot. Especially "Lonanto", "Atmosphères" and "Apparitions". A suggested listen to anyone into the more dissonant sides of 20th century classical music.

Altar Of Flies/Darksmith 7" (Hästen & Korset)
Darksmith.. very minimalistic, just one fairly quiet loop in the background and some occasional glitchy sounds coming in and a sparse use of what i guess is field recordings (something that sounds like a car alarm going on for an example). Quite decent, though the short 7" format is not the ideal for this music. AOF continues with what he does best, a bit more dynamic than usual perhaps with a nice use of metal junk at the second part. Great track.

Joy Division • Closer • 2xCD

The band renowned for the tragic loss of their enigmatic and mysterious frontman. This, their second and final studio album (give or take compilations, etc) sees them at quite possibly their most miserable. The genius, personal and often all too true lyrics mixed with the pounding simplicity of the instruments is timeless. After their success of Unknown Pleasures, the band were able to experiment with new equipment (including more of an emphasis on synthesizers than previous efforts) and recording techniques, expanding their musical palette.

Closer is a masterpiece. One that grows on you. Simply powerful and emotional music. It may not hit home as hard or be as full on as their debut, but its subtle approach marks a clear line between the two records, and yet all the same connections and similarities can be recognised – for example a nice mix of slower tracks (Decades – without a doubt one of their most melancholy efforts) to more upbeat ones (A Means To An End) and of course all of the traits that made Joy Division who they were. If a band sounds at least slightly different on every record they create, progressing as they go, then they are doing something right. What makes Joy Division so great? The pure honesty? The unique doom laden guitar tones and hard drums? The sincerity? The groundbreaking negativity and hurt within the music? The listener can decide. Despite how seething and gloomy Joy Division were, there is always a ray of beauty to be found within their music if you search for it.

Alongside Unknown Pleasures and Still, this album is treated to a full remaster in a double digipak with a booklet containing photos and interviews alongside an additional disc with a live recording. It features a full set of plenty of classics (although only one track from Unknown Pleasures!). It is well known that Ian Curtis’ performances vs. studio recordings are full of more energy regarding how he uses his voice, and at times the music is faster, louder, stronger, and show a completely different perspective to the calmer studio versions. The other side of the coin. The recording is good quality for what sounds like a single microphone audience recording.

It is interesting to note that a lot of highly influential bands from the late 1970s / early 1980s met an early end for one reason or another: Joy Division, Throbbing Gristle, Bauhaus… all of which happened in a heartbeat. A short existence yet one that leaves a profound impression. Sadly, this band will always be the mold for shit indie bands to be cast from. New Order recently released a compilation CD called Total – collecting another “best of” Joy Division and New Order. Flogging a dead horse does not cut it.

Joy Division • Love Will Tear Us Apart • 7”

The one song that everyone knows. It is a beautiful classic that ties the knot for the end of the band. The single is paired with the fast paced post-punk These Days and another version of the A-side snuck after it. A nice record shop find.

Sektor 304 • Soul Cleansing • CD

Bands like this get rarer and rarer. Sektor 304 seemingly came out of the blue and knocked most who have heard it off their feet since. All kinds of sound sources and methods are used to create dissonant industrial music. It is not noise. It is not power electronics. It is simply that: industrial music for the modern era. Oil drums, sheet metal, scathing vocals, drills, bass guitars, drum machines, synthesizers, broken glass and much more are all utilised and orchestrated in a way that evokes tribal-esque rhythms and unholy compositions of sound. All day could be spent name dropping a large amount of bands that Sektor 304 brings to mind, but why bother? However, if you were to do that, the majority of them would be either from or started in the 1980s; not bands and projects from today, which sets Sektor 304 apart from a lot of modern experimental music.

The only problem with this album is that some of the tracks seem to not really go anywhere and do so for an elongated period of time. The minimalism and slug-pace of some of the material requires patience to appreciate, but in all honesty the best approach to this album is to sit down and listen to it from beginning to end (and loud at that), absorbing everything.

Saying that, there is plenty of interesting variety on offer here and nothing gets particularly stale - some of it just drags on a bit without changing its course. But if some “hit” tracks were to be mentioned, the brutality and simplicity of the drilling bass guitar dirge and destructive percussion of opening track Body Hammer sticks out as a modern classic. More notable genius and simplicity can be found on The Beast, which evokes grinding guitar feedback, chilling atmospherics and industrial rhythm, and towards the end Death Mantra’s punishing deliverance of chaotic brutal percussion and the deafening screech of war horns, making way for a vicious verse / chorus / verse structure, which descends into a nightmarish void of lost voices resonating within is all too satisfying. The production is tight and loud and as a whole the album flows well from beginning to end.

Soul Cleansing is scorching debut which hopefully is not a one-off. When and if they come back, it would great to see more evolution and less repetition in some of the tracks, but otherwise this is an essential and mandatory addition to the true industrial connoisseur’s collection.

Cthulhu Youth • Cthulhu Youth • C14

Nasty powerviolence and noise from London. This is a reissue of their debut self titled EP. Plenty of downtuned fast and hard madness and crunchy massive riffs. A track or two sounds like it nods towards black metal a little, too. It all sounds really good on tape. Side B is filled with some feedback noise and microphone abuse which erupts into a scorching final track. This band seems to be onto something and can definitely go places if they take what they have and develop it further, but for now it is a rewarding listen.

Cthulhu Youth • Inflatable World For Weak Lungs / Water Retention Problems • C20

Their second EP does indeed show progress. The thrashy and hard elements are there to be able to make the conclusion that some of this, in terms of sound, is not that distant from some raw black metal. This time there are shorter and fast blasts of powerviolence based around some really heavy riffs. The band could have squeezed in a few more tracks during the four minutes of silence on Side A, though. Side B presents the best material here: Conceptual Coma Activism really hits home. It is simply disgusting, slow, sludgy and downright dissonant. The final track takes a similar turn to the self titled: this time with oscillator squelch and low end noise akin to Man Is The Bastard.

Both of these tapes come in nice screenprinted cardboard packaging with an insert. Sadly, the only way to see the tracklisting is to look online. These tapes are sold out now but a download can be purchased from Holy Roar.

Macronympha • Amplified Humans • CD

An essential cut of the masters of amplified steel and filth dubbed to tape! Industrial Recollections are doing a good job of reintroducing the nastier side of old noise tape culture to the CD format. Most Macro fans know what to expect: dry metal abuse, burning electronics pushed to the red, fast cuts between transitions and powerful loops. As for newcomers: the further one delves into the extensive history of their discography, the more satisfaction awaits. This is a noise project where it is usually easy to know what to expect, but very rarely do you get disappointed.

As a whole this is an excellent album consisting of two long sides of material – but there are some definite highlights, which are usually the unexpected moments that leer out of the carnage of layered scrap. The fast-cut style from one transition to another is the Macronympha trademark, where subtle moments explode into a mass of tape bass energy and audial heat. This may not be as full on as the raw purity of record such as Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania but it is still a necessary addition to your noise collection.
