In time and energy consuming process of trying to clean up the label schedule from all the bending and delayed deals, massive new batch is now out with many absolutely recommended titles.

See covers and more information here:

http://freak-animal.net/2021/10/14/new-cds-october-2021/

For quick view below. More information about each item may be posted a bit later!

Toteslaut ”Strident Impurity” CD (FIN, odd mix of noise and martial music! Very unusual and original album, somewhere between old Blood Axis, Naos and …Richard Ramirez!)

Will over matter ”Aviation Hypnosis” CD (FIN, new album, shorter instrumental album minimal industrial sounds, pulsating rhythms and electronic signals for fans of EG, MB,.. and WOM!)

Hal Hutchinson  ”Cold Industrial Experience” CD (UK, new album of HH, less harsh noise, more industrial-soundscapes of loops and crude factory sounds, arranged into pieces that has the dirty noisiness, but also the cold industrial sound)

V/A Terässinfonia vol 3 CD (FIN, introducing many new acts to global scene. Finnish compilation series of harsh noise, pe, experimental-noise, etc. Be surprised of quality and quantity of new names!)

V/A Terässinfonia vol 4 CD
(FIN, introducing many new acts to global scene. Finnish compilation series of harsh noise, pe, experimental-noise, etc. Be surprised of quality and quantity of new names!)

APRAPAT ”s/t” 2xCD (FIN, double CD compiling all early tapes plus unreleased work. Finnish harsh noise mastery!)

Pain Nail ”Salainen Diktatuuri” CD (FIN, finally new album from Pain Nail! Finnish industrial-soundscapes/power electronics)

Of course all items seem to be like absolute must, but while individual artists on top of their creative peak is something that can be seen globally happening all the time, ongoing series titled Terässinfonia (Steel symphony) proves there is some notable happening in Finland on collective level too.
This has been talked with a lot people, how come from such a tiny country can emerge so many PE/harsh noise/experimental noise bands/projects/artists? Reasons can be speculated, but as proof, here we have two more volumes introducing some names people most likely know, some names that are most likely new to most! Also parts 1 and 2 are available.  Perhaps 5th will be done 2022!

The new Hal Hutchinson album sounds fantastic.  Will these releases be distributed in the US through the usual shops?

Formed back in 1998 and instantly same year Pain Nail played its first gig and made promo tape. That was not in wide circulation. Promo worked more as tape sent to couple labels who could be interested in projects sound. Back then, Finnish power electronics / industrial was not as appreciated as it is today and it took year for Pain Nail to be recognized along the names people are more familiar with.
Eventually material of the promo tape was used on debut 7" (2000) and some songs on End Times LP (2002), both on Freak Animal Records. For almost 25 years, Pain Nail has played shows in Finland and abroad, and published new works once in a while. All old material has been sold out, but Freak Animal is planning to repress albums on CD during 2022. Pain Nail has recorded vastly more than it has published, but every release has been long process of evaluation and rejection until finally complete physically release emerges.
Salainen Diktatuuri, recorded already 2018, is finally out now! 40 minutes of Finnish industrial-pe-noise soundscapes. Rhythmic, raw, atmospheric, decayed and elegant all melts together. Cardboard gatefold in slipcase. CD only!

COLD INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE describes well the new Hal Hutchinson album. Freak Animal has collaborated with artists several times during the years. New albums is less of pure harsh noise, but also different from his previous FA releases that were heavily focusing on loops.
Cold Industrial Experience has great dirty and rusty sound and all the songs are build out of raw and harsh industrial-noise fragments, that have somewhat musical composition known from his work as ZSS. All instrumental works are build of dysfunctional machinery rhythms, feedbacks, crushing and collapsing construction sounds, overdriven, saturated mix. Originally artists considered these 5 tracks as a tape release, but Freak Animal considered material the be strongest of his works yet and CD album being mandatory! Noisy enough for harshnoise-heads, composed enough to satisfy people into darkest and noisiest industrial.

APRAPAT 2xCD

Merely couple years ago Aprapat started to peak into public. Small edition self released tapes were praised by the small group of people who managed to get them. Many others cursed the contemporary situation where one needs to be alert almost 24/7 if not wanting to miss out interesting new noise.

Since its foundations in early part of the 90’s, Freak Animal has been on the mission of bringing the Finnish noise to attention of global scene. Even in 2021, many debut CD albums of rising Finnish names has been published. Making these hard to find Aprapat tapes of 2019-2020 available for larger audience they certainly deserve was good to do now.

Harsh noise blast is combined with The New Blockaders -esque collapsing junk, rugged hand assembled tape-loops, screech and clatter, oddities of tape saturation, analogue artifacts and so on. Packaged in very neat full color double digipak that takes advantage of all the original art from self released tapes.

Also t-shirt of related design is available!
