Confirmed: NOCTURNE (Fr) Industrial/Experimental

We make noise because we are alive and we will have all the time for the calm!

Saphi is the origin of Nocturne and it began its first analog and industrial experiences in 1994. Its first concerns were that of global memory and guilt, the notion of choice and free will. Face a situation we only find an attitude to adopt in order to react to an emergency and can keep us going. But our biological logic is distinguished from the social logic, and our internal opposition goes sometimes against what we really are or would like to be. It's in the intimacy of reasoning which arise the first conflicts before their possible extensions, that oscillates Nocturne.

We will destroy everything, even our ruins!

Confirmed: SATANISMO CALIBRO 9 (It) Infernal Industrial

Infernal Industrial from Italy since 2005. Satanismo Calibro 9 is a mix of primitive ritual soundscapes, harsh blasts, Power Electronics and Death Industrial. After the first cdr released by Open Wound, (label of Trev Ward, The Grey Wolves), SC9 signed to the cult label Old Europa Cafe.

Last autumn SC9 celebrated its first decade at X Congresso Post Industriale together with Djinn, Le Cose Bianche, Sshe Retina Stimulants, Trepaneringsritualen and MZ412.

During the past years the concept evolved, creating a unique esoteric system permeating every release and live show.

Confirmed: SICK SEED (Fin) Power-Electronics/Industrial.

Sick Seed is an ever-evolving and mutating Power Electronics Industrial band/project that started in 2008 as a continuum of Pekka PT’s previous harsh noise project Gelsomina.

Musically SS releases and live shows have ranged from barbaric P.E. attacks to dusty Industrial no-wave blues and several places in between. Thematically there have been nearly no limits from primitive perversions to sarcastic social commentary to obscure esotericism and back.

In 2016 Sick Seed performs Pure Industrial Musick and Rust Magick and stands for Discordianism without humour.

Confirmed: AIT! (It) Experimental/Avant-Garde/Post-Industrial

AIT! is the one-man band of Tairy Ceron, an Italian artist active in the Industrial-music area since 1997, when he started recording Death-Industrial music releasing several albums as "Today, I'm Dead”, produced by the cult label Slaughter Productions.
In 2002 He stopped that project and created AIT!

AIT!’s music is uneasy to be labeled, due to its many and different musical styles, including electronic, experimental, noir-folk, spacy-lounge, punk, and more...yet always reviewed and interpreted with a distinctive Industrial and very dark key.

After the highly acclaimed album “Romanticismo Oltranzista” (2007), AIT! has not released new albums and also chosen not to play concerts for many years.

After a long silence, he has played a couple of selected gigs, performing only new songs as preview of his forthcoming new album, that will finally be released this year!
According to people present at those concerts, the new songs are quite different from the previous works, and also the approach on stage is considerably mutated.
Tower Transmissions will be a good occasion to discover the new essence of AIT!

Confirmed: SATORI (Uk) Dark Ambient/Noise/Industrial

A spore. Or a seed. Or maybe a drop of blood. There is always something left. Just when everyone thought the devil was done, the alien defeated, it comes back.
More powerful, stronger and much much angrier. To lay waste the land, destroy the positive and breathe its fetid stench in the face of light. We should have known.
Should have realised that in the vacuum left by its departure something would grow. Expanding and multiplying to fill the void.
Recycling its hate, constricting hope and slowly, surely getting pissed at the world. Do we deserve its seething rage? Yes we probably do.

Dave Kirby formed Satori in the early 1980s with Rob Maycock, released music on the legendary Broken Flag label and then, just as quickly as they had arrived, stopped.
Resurrected briefly to promote a retrospective CD "Infect" Dave and Justin Mitchell (Cold Spring Records) joined forces to blast a total wall of noise to unsuspecting gig-goers.
Then Dave vanished. Justin along with new recruit Neil Chaney (Pessary) released the album "Kanashibari" in 2008. After touring the UK, Europe and Japan things went quiet again.

Until now. Dave is back with ten new Satori tracks. Classic Power Electronics, Industrial and Dark Ambient soundscapes sculpted from a collection of alienating electronica, found sound and heavy drums.

"The Hanging" marks both a new beginning and a continuation of a project now 30 years old but, most importantly, the chance to hear over an hour of brand new Satori.

Confirmed: EINLEITUNGSZEIT (Sk) Death-Industrial/Noise/Performance

This Slovak band exists for more than 20 years.
The early experiments later led to ultimate Death-Industrial sound which brought Einleitungszeit the status one of the genre top-classics.
Longtime original set-up changed in 1999 when P-01 (Patryc Cyber) was replaced by hallucinatory throat of Martin Jarolim (from VO.I.D).
P-01 capitulated and still dedicates himself to his solo project Simulacrvm which debut CD Zevgma was released two years ago on Old Europa Café.

The very first tapes Die Menschzerstörung, Menschliche Destruktive Zivilisation and Kremation Gesch-Lechtslos were released by Slovak Crewzine. This material was followed by LP Aus dem Laboratorium on German Art Konkret label.
Another release L´accouchement Des Machines Humaines was realized on Finnish label Freak Animal.
Afterwards American cult Recalcitrant Noise took care about this project and the results were two vinyl albums R Mensch I Tanatologie (2LP) and Aus der Leichenkammer which was censored on Slovakia because of quite shocking and unacceptable cover.

After many releases are Einleitungszeit well-known worldwide nowadays and their live performances have been seen by audiences not only in Slovakia and Czechia but also in Poland and Germany – with more then positive reaction and successful acceptance.

Einleitungszeit live actions are very intense, often described as „negative or destructive", but they have more common with ecstasy when R-01 uses grinder directly on his chest (protected only with thin metal plate) or burning his hands with asbestos gloves or grinding an iron band around his neck. Sometimes, these emanations of joy could not be left without a harm; R-01 was burned or hit by electricity for many times.

The sound is absorbing, clear and powerful. Forty minutes of their stage storm brings ecstasy and feelings of transformation through sound, spirit and fire. The imagery of master-slave relationship, the embodiment of human alienation, those are information transmitted by the cyber-apostles for the next century, for hybrids and clones century.

Confirmed: 1997EV (It) Experimental/Psychedelic Noise

1997EV
In the proudest acid style ...

We Are A Neurotic Cyberpunk Psychedelic Mutopia.
We Are Nuclear Fissions Hating Being Confined.
We Are A Declaration On Acceleration.
We Are A Stroboscopic Nihilist Kaleidoscope.
We Overdrive Our Burst Of Impronatural Energy And Accelerated Thoughts.
We Are An Army Of Bastard Rodents Addicted To The Anatomy Of Your Own Psychic Life.

1997EV is an experimental post-apocalyptic project born somewhere... some time before now.

The project focused into experimenting several heavy-on-drones and drum machines recordings, flowing from both a surreal trance-impro style to a subliminally cosmical-industrial feel, facing an upward progression toward a more abstract and methaphysical sound, a fusion of atonal and hypnotic acid-rock and psycho-folk, a kaleidoscope of pseudo-digital suites and ectoplasmic sub-lunar projections.

1997EV following efforts refocused towards even outer recesses and sonic wanderings around the form of a post-technological cosmogony.

1997EV has been seeding its tight sonic sound for years showing the spell of interacting within the deep wall of sound resulting on stage and is manifested live by Andrea Ev, Janlux Derlist and Tzii.
We strive to bring you on this unique event our hypno-thrashing sonic conspiracy above all else ... and hope you inspire us do the same.
We have no idea of where the hell we're going!
... or maybe we have!

Confirmed: SALÒ SALON (D) Death Industrial/Ambient Noise

"Salò Salon is a German Death Industrial/Ambient Noise one-man project that started in 2013.

Embedded between the priorities of cultural and metaphysical pessimism with a strong historical accentuation it tries to create an atmosphere of mental disturbance as a reflection on, amongst other things, the circulation of ideas during the first half of the 20th century.

The sound itself based primarily on metal (percussion), collages, noises, and subtle "melody" fragments. - O giungere o spezzare."

On Friday and Saturday at TOWER TRANSMISSIONS VI we will screen a new exclusive video from Marco Deplano (WERTHAM/CALIGULA 031).

"Culprit" is the new chapter of the "In Absentia" video series, which stands as a replacement in non-physical form of Wertham's live actions.

This work is the ideal follow-up of previous videos, a non-intellectual research on criminal mentality from the guilt’s perspective. A rough attempt to dig in the mind of a nameless delinquent standing above the law.

The video was prepared exclusively for the Tower Transmissions festival; sounds are taken from the forthcoming new Wertham’s full length album “Bodies Under Siege” and dwell in classic 90’s European Power-Electronics, with full-frontal vocal assault.

Great weekend. Big thanks to Eric & co for organizing & bands for performing. Club Puschkin is perfect for a festival of this type. Nice to meet some Special Interests people face to face as well.

Personal top three were (perhaps rather unsurprisingly) Genocide Organ, Einleitungszeit and Sick Seed. Got to say that for me GO was in their own league, though.

Are there pictures of the weekend online somewhere?

This was my... 3rd? Or 4th festival? TT has proven to be among very best of international industrial festivals. If UK has it's UNITED FORCES OF INDUSTRIAL that has given good slice for unknown & up-&-coming artists, TT has been doing it for Germany. I think it's far easier to put out fest, which relies solely on "classic names". Festivals like these two, are good for my taste, as they allow you to see something unlikely to be seen.

Of course, we may end up in situation, where band is not yet exactly on level of big stage of international festival. For example SALÒ SALON who started on Friday, would have most likely been 100% fitting to some of Finnish kontti gigs. Two guys, in commando masks, lo-fi noise fuzz on the PA and guys beating randomly on bunch of metal junk. While one could appreciate that it really was noise stripped down from everything "innovative", just making bunch of racket, in this context it didn't give much to praise. In smaller space, adding some known-how to really amp the junk, and less light... perhaps it would be just fine.

SATANISMO CALIBRO I liked. 3 guys doing quite traditional ritual music soundscapes. Oscillating electronics, eerie throat drone, contact mic'ed horns or bones or what was it. Sigils drawn on paper, burned in metallic bowl. It has electric feel to it, but still plenty of things happening and you could see the sounds created on stage. Be it boutique oscillator-box button turning, or chants, bells, etc. Set was too long for my taste, but it was good. It was just too long of the good.

Nowadays NOCTURNE is too much of "industrial music" for my taste. It was quite amusing for many reasons, but I think a lot of people liked set, that was possibly longest of entire fest?!

1997EV was one of those names I had no idea who it was. And when I saw bunch of guys jamming endless one riff spacerock/kraut/psyche whatever, it made me think band must be in wrong place. I'm sure it was picked up to give variation for night, but I think if you go for rock bands, there are endless amount of better bands to choose.

CLUB MORAL surprised by lack of performance art. That this was more like just a... well, gig! They played songs, classic ones including Nazis of the Night, but I was turned off by clarity of sound. No vocal effects. Random boutique synth buzzing jumping here and there over drum beats and loops that created backbone of songs. Just personal taste of preferring Club Moral at its noisiest form.

WERTHAM video was bright white screen with faces. That much I can tell. Perhaps not ideal way of presentation and honestly I didn't see entire thing, as catching some breath was necessary between bands, due the brutal heatwave....

I may appear praising the buddies, but nevertheless, I'd say SNUFF was best of the Friday by far. And this wasn't even the best gig they did. Simply because it's quite a lot about what type of amplifier one uses - if the main ingredients of material is amplifier feedback! What they did in Finland, was more piercing and ripping, yet no complaints here. Snuff is slow and tormenting. Sometimes even irritating, difficult noise electronics. Double vocals, fatty and flegmatic stage presence oozes kind of old mans position who just sees the vile surroundings and approves it. Almost saggy, tugged into ass-crack. White trash approving the white trash urges. There's nothing noble in it. Noise they make, fits well to whole "who'd appreciate THIS" content. Still, they compose, plan, rehearse and execute it with true intent. It's not build upon lack of skill, but clearly exact opposite of diamond clear vision what they'd want to achieve.


Saturday 17th started with  SICK SEED who delivered one of their best shows. Maybe. Band is so diverse, that it's hard to compared some of the shows together. No rock'n'roll here. I happened to sell mr. Sick Seed some of equipment I wanted to get rid off, and it's good to see significant part of the set was build on playing this Sleepdrone -oscillator. Despite it's limitations, this box enabled SS to create very nice tracks. That, and live loops, bass player creating bass noise. Exactly the kind of stuff I like - that you see what is done on stage. And that it also works. And every track is different from another. Vocals blended in unusually quiet compared to some other SS gigs, but I liked that vocals were more as sound element than clear speech on top of music.

SÖLDNERGEIST did not arrive to fest. Who knows why. SATORI appeared most of all as guy standing behind lap-top. Which was such an opposite of Sick Seed's live noise. It wasn't bad, but this type of stuff is for me home listening. Not for stage.

AIT! had huge stage set up build during break. It was guy from Today, I'm Dead. While that project is more towards death industrial, known for releases on Slaughter productions etc. AIT! is more into industrial music, what has melodic patterns, beats, nearly "gothic" feel to it. Again, lap-top playing ready made music, with just bleak vocals on top...  Not for me.

As result of that, drinking perhaps couple beers too many just before GENOCIDE ORGAN hit on stage. Returning inside, to moist brutal heat on venue. It was both, suitable climate for the new performance of GO, but also resulting lack of focus from my part. Drifting somewhere between alert and excited, but also exhausted, I hoped I had not drank that last beer, hah... This show was so good, it should have been seen with clear mind. New material, somewhat new stage presence. Clashing machetes, forceful synth tones, loops, all the "usual" GO is known to be, but doing what they do now. Almost exclusively new album songs, with addition to couple formerly known tracks. But no attempt to please fans with some ever-green old classics, but band clearly sees themselves being vital at this moment, not some nostalgia act. Excellent.

I had heard many things about EINLEITUNGSZEIT before. I like their music on records (of course, having released on of their albums back in the day), but wasn't sure if all the stories of their amusing stage props is true - and will it work. And it was true, and it did work. Now already clear mind after GO, could observe and listen entire set like it should. Their sound seems more chaotic and furious industrial-noise than on older records. Perhaps it's partially just the sound quality itself. Lots of people on stage. Everybody wearing costumes, like pulled out from post-apocalyptic b-rate sci-fi movie. Power tools, fire breathing, grinding sparks from scrap metal, smoke and all sorts of chaotic behavior. At the end, all 5 members came to front of stage on one row like theatre group to bow and salute to audience. It was most of all just energy fueled fun. Not joke, but something what perhaps isn't done these days at industrial gigs of this type. You can't expect someone appear in silver face paint and kind of blacksmith/butcher outfit and just deliver good loud noise without doing it as joke. Guy setting his arm on fire while some cyborg look-a-like gas mask guy churns loud noise on back.  Atmosphere was totally unlike Genocide Organ, but they lived up to level of closing band of festival.

While, being critical for some bands, it is good that there are things one doesn't have to watch entirely. Festival is organized in great place, what allows to go out for chat with friends you rarely see and even quiet corners to get some beers and sit down. As soon as bands to see, good stage, good lights, good sound system. I was told there won't be TT fest next year. Too bad. I hope they will return in 2018 then!

This time was only as visitor. Not on stage. Nevertheless, big thanks for Eric for all the work! Would hope to visit again..
