I am thrilled to announce six new releases on New Forces. Orders can be placed at https://newforces.bigcartel.com.

K2 Sexencyclopedia 5 CD Boxset
Sexencyclopedia is the crowning achievement of legendary Japanese noise artist K2. Since the early 1980's K2 has been at the forefront of noise, celebrated for intricate musique concrète, amplified scrap metal, and dynamic harsh electronics. Originally released on Kinky Musik Institute in 2001, "Sexencyclopedia" perfectly exemplifies the sprawling discography of K2, balancing shredding metal junks against lighting fast electronic destruction. Across 4 discs the original Sexencyclopedia unveiled a master-class in noise performance, composition, and editing. The tracks stop, start, and cut abruptly only to relentlessly expand in waves of screaming euphoria that are both psychedelic and pummeling. The skill exercised on these tracks is intimidating, a window into the sonic possibilities of pure sound.

One of the mandatory examples of Japanese noise, and my personal favorite in the K2 discography, the original 4-disc set has become increasingly difficult (and expensive) to acquire. New Forces is proud to make Sexencyclopedia available once more. For the reissue K2 arranged collaborations with four allies: Toshiji Mikawa, Sissy Spacek, Kazumoto Endo, and GX Jupitter-Larsen. These tracks are included on a bonus fifth disc unique to the new edition. Each of the 5 discs is housed in an individual slip case, with the entire set contained in a CD boxset with new artwork by John Wiese, based on the designs of the original 2001 edition.

 
C.C.C.C. Amplified Crystal II Double CD
Originally released on cassette by Endorphine Factory in 1993, this rare Japanese noise masterpiece features a remix of the B-Side of the C.C.C.C. "Amplified Crystal" LP by Aube on disc 1, while disc 2 includes solo tracks by the four members of C.C.C.C. as well as a final group track. Over the course of these two discs the psychedelic noise of C.C.C.C. is reimagined by the deft hand of Aube (R.I.P.), deconstructed into the composite parts of Hiroshi Hasegawa, Fumio Kosakai, Mayuko Hino, and Ryuichi Nagakubo, and then rebuilt for a glorious finish. C.C.C.C. exemplifies the overwhelming energy at the core of noise music, and New Forces is proud to make Amplified Crystal II widely available once more. For an immersive listening experience, the original handmade packaging has been redesigned by John Wiese into a 6-panel digipak.
 

Industrial-Historical Document 3: Indian Country Triple Cassette
Industrial-historical investigations into imperial continuities in American history. Moving beyond the puerile cliché that "those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it." We're still living it. It never left. Violence resonates beyond the boundaries of individual actors. Striations. Unsustainable Social Condition. Breaking The Will. Three attempts to amplify the fury that gives definition to the present.

3 cassettes housed in a vinyl case with multiple inserts.

 
 
A Fail Association - Dedicated To Shot + Weapon Cassette
Mandatory noise from the boss of the flawless Dada Drumming imprint. Razor sharp slicing noise executed with breakneck speed and fearless propulsion. A longtime favorite here at New Forces HQ. Sweating, out of breath, lacerated with clinical precision.
 

Form Hunter - Form Hunter Cassette
Available again! The debut release from Form Hunter.

The debut release from Form Hunter, a duo that comprises S. Aune (Breaking the Will, Kjostad) and W. Czerkies (Sunken Cheek, Goddaughter). Everything pushed defiantly into the red, pummeling scrap metal, mangled electronics, blasting tape hiss and shredded eardrums. Grinding you into the dirt, cutting to the bone with a rusty hacksaw, a reminder that noise feels best when it hurts. The first salvo, recorded at Noise Widow farms, for those forever chasing the euphoria only harsh noise can provide.
 

Crawl of Time "Moments of Pleasure. Years of Pain" Cassette
Available again!

5 tracks of deeply personal heavy electronics. An unflinching portrayal of family, anger, and forgiveness. A sonic reckoning, and an opportunity for growth. New Forces had the honor of issuing the first Crawl of Time material in 2017, and we couldn't be happier to once more work with Samuel Montero-Torres (Terror Cell Unit, Koufar).

Preparing to send some copies to Tesco (German), Old Europa Cafe (Italy), and Cipher (Australia). A restock is also headed to White Centipede Noise (Germany). The C.C.C.C. is sold out from me, and the K2 is getting low.
