Good to see variation in this field. Never too many of these in Finland.

Indeed, it is good to see new labels rise.
I could just nag about the dvd case. Just about worst thing to pack a release.
for easy & cheap covers, I recommend those jewelcase size thing (a'la BLJ, Emil Beauliea, Mania and such FA releases). Goes to shelves with regular CD's and strong + light weight and all the other benefits if one doesn't want fragile jeweboxes.

I agree with DVD-case being a poor choice for packaging. But I applaud kicking off the label with an edition of 200 cds. Nice change from these "micro-labels" with 20-50 copy editions of cd-r's and tapes.

It has to be said that too few in the Industrial or "Noise" genre are any good. Most are Johnny-come-latelys with a ton of weird effects pedals but no ideas, no real emotion or content to back it up. But these days there are still a few like Slogun, Murderous Vision, Corephallism, or Bereft, that are more like what Throbbing Gristle were trying to do in the 70s. That is, depicting a decaying, no-hope world, coming mostly from the cities, rust-belt ones in particular...

Praying For Oblivion is one of those artists. Hailing from Buffalo, a town more known for a middling arts scene and rotting infrastructure, main man Andrew Seal is now in his thirties and living in Europe, but is very much a product of the town. Many of his tracks are a scream of rage, at a disappearing future for himself as well as his frustration with humanity and its fake sincerity and accomplishment.

This CD is more of a retrospective of tracks scanning almost a decade and a half of machine hum, drone, clatter and scree. Like the other bands I mentioned (and a bit like the latest release from Ramleh) there's no recognizable musical base on any of these tracks. It's like the musical equivalent of an abandoned factory, kind of like an aural skeleton (if you will...) I'm sure most people may not get anything out of fare such as this, but it's there and impossible to ignore. Maybe you could read it as a disturbing vision of the future. At any rate, I hope Seal keeps on with his project, as it would be interesting to see how it develops...
