RAKE "Squelch / Phrase Text Slur" 7"
Fourth Dimension
Perhaps quite typical to be this label, mid 90's...  Despite sort of progessive/art/weird rock from USA, I can foolishly lump it together with all that UK stuff a'la Skullflower, Splintered, Band of Pain (not all stuff) and such. Rock drum beat all sorts of semi-random music and experimental sounds on top. I know band has massive discography, but I remember only having collab. 7" with USA industrial band ConDemek.

PGR "Euphoria / Order And Chaos" 7"
Silent
While ago wrote about the debut LP. Not sure if I ever heard/seen tapes under "Poison Gas Research" moniker. And while discogs info says band started in mid 80's, this 7" is already recorded in 1983, just mixed in studio '87 and finally released 1990. Material is not that "industrial", but like ugly home-made experimental music. Instruments are prepared autoharp, pot lid, prepared guitar and syrup can. Quite funny that they list that on cover, what gives this odd handmade noise much more amusing feel than sound itself would. So into listening some pot lid & syrup can cling-clang?! About 5-6 times later I can conclude that cutting of vinyl is probably quite fucked. Or the sound of material may be quite fucked. It adds charming unprofessionalism, what sets it apart from kind of "academic" electro-acoustic stuff - which is where this leans much more than industrial/noise.

Wertham "Maladolescenza" 7"
Deathangle Absolution Records
Nice title. Nice back cover image! Two tracks of known Wertham style of vocals, spoken fragments, buzzing electronics, creating quite solid and steady sound in the end. Just like I commented on Control, I don't think there is bad Wertham releases, but not so easy to find the ultimate hit track that stands utterly memorable. Both these tracks offers good dense multilayered power electronics information overload, but also not utterly distinctive elements that would make it jump out of discography.

ROMUTUS 7"
Maybe label name is Ei Armua?! Not sure. This is Turku based fast and wild bass-drums-vocals hardcore punk mixed with Umpio doing harsh noise. In the end, you got "fastcore" tempo paced noisecore blasting. It's not hyperfast, and basically tracks have same tempo and feel all the time. But sound is good, inclusion of lyrics makes vocals something else than mere random screams. Good titles as Suomi Kusee, Suomi on Kehitysmaa, Jumala on runkkari, Jeesuskauppiaat, Suolesta, etc etc..

INTOLITARIAN "Omnicidal Murderer" 7"
Deathangle Absolution Records
Noisecore blasting from USA then. So change the hc/punk aesthetic to hostile-to-all antihumanism and destruction, visually leaning to later days inhuman warmetal and you get the point. Basically its like taking Revenge kind of music to logical extreme: abandoning idea of riffs and longer song structures. Just dark and distorted short blasts. I think this old material was better than debute full length, but still, recently released 2nd full length crushes it easyly...

Don't think so. It appears hard to communicate with label at the moment. I just got one copy for myself. If situation changes, I will try to get them. Now I would guess best place to buy this labels stuff is Hells Headbangers?

All Deathangle Absolution Records releases are only available through Hells Headbangers (or so it was announced at the NWN! board), though I believe Darker Than Black/Merchant of Death was getting some (but then he just bought them, not wholesale), don't know whether he still has some.
So, Hells Headbangers is probably your best chance.

EDWIGE - Play The Game Or Leave The Bed (Release The Bats)
Not sure if it's already been mentioned in this thread, but anyway... Much in line with the first LP, this is a perfect EP. Harsh noise by Sam and Dan with Brewer making a hell of a racket in the midst of it all. To the point. Some sleazy samples thrown in as well. Feel like saying so much about this EP and the first LP, but what is there to say really? A real nobrainer. Probably cheaper now than when it was released.

I know Hell Headbangers is the “official” store. I’m trying to avoid making orders overseas, that’s why I’ve asked. Thanks anyway!

Wrote about this 7" couple years ago..

ASHTRAY NAVIGATIONS "the "o" mouth direct input raygun" 7"
Turgid Animal
This is the prime example of absurd UK noise. With track titles like "Moonfried marshmallow eyesockets signific indifference". I used to admire old A.N. stuff, but at some point I got really bored with with it. I guess it has a lot to do with one terrible live show I saw. Not that anyones one bad set should ruin anything, but it's not always about intelligent reasons why you like or don't.
This 7" restores my faith in fact that Phil Todd most certainly knows what he is doing. Not so much muddiness of drone muzak, but quite crystallic high pitch synth resonation and oscillation, with mellotron and guitar creating solid drone background. Nothing here will revolutionize the world of noise, but gave few spins for the 7" and especially in this type of 4 songs in 7" format, it works well. Hits into somehow same nerv as old MITB electronic tracks. Short, atmospheric, gets the job done.

Also would have to say, that even if it has very little, if anything to do with Grey Wolves, some of the stuff here made me think about Catholic Priests Fuck Children. Raw noise drone, but subtle melodic patterns on back like few of the greatest GW tracks. Of course here it's more in form of drone. Also Skullflower connection happened in my brain more than anything about MITB...

AARON DILLOWAY / THE CHERRY POINT "Fencing" 7"

Troniks
Dillo side starts noisy, gets way less noisy and slowly builds back to raw and physical. Even after 4 spins of his side, it escapes to really capture attention. I do like what is done here, but somehow the live take of rough sounds doesn't really really become good "song" and remains perhaps too short to be stuff you just sink in..  Nice, but only nice.
CP guys do 45rpm side. Faster, louder, thick wall of noise. It appears like reverb was used before distortion, creating very strong wall-like sound. All gaps are covered, but still one can hear details below the static. Good stuff.

SKULLFLOWER "Total" 7"
Vinyl Communications
one side great drone/feedback stuff, other side pretty lame live material. I wish both sides would be as solid as opening piece. Of course, it's the "same old" we have used to expect from Bower. Guitar and feedback. Nothing new back then, nothing new now, but this era Skullflower appeals to me.

the 3 x CD reissue of Carved Into Roses, Infinityland, plus a disc of 4 x 7"s from that era revealed this to be what alot of people thought : that it was more like a Skullflower/Total split 7". the titles were also listed too.

Skullflower : Metallurgical King (Live)
Total : Twin Constellations

here :
http://www.discogs.com/Skullflower-Carved-Into-Roses-Infinityland-Singles/release/3227174

totally agree the Total side is great and the main reason to own that 7". no, it's nothing new at all, but still great all the same. i mean, how could someone who's into guitar feedback and droney noise not love this?!?! check it out : http://youtu.be/ojLLesU6kKk

ALLERSEELEN "Nornar nagei / panzergarten" 7"
Ahnstern
I have kind of love/hate relationship with this project. While I would want to like what I hear, very often I don't. This is one of the better ones for my taste. It's pretty easygoing muzak anyways. Based on single loop going on and other things build over it. But not just clumsy dance music, but something else too.

THE GEROGERIGEGEGE "Life Documents" 7"
Fourth Dimension
This is the true anti-Tahdon2014 soundtrack. Lousy electronic dance music and grunting homo vocal noises on top. Nothing healthy, nothing neat, just sleazy men in absurd action. One could always want little more noise, but it's ok for 7" length!

ALTAR OF FLIES "Cenotaphs" 7"
Hästen & Korset
Good 7". One one louder and more textured. Starts great with noisy loops and racket, gets more quiet and "artsy" if one should use such word. Builds back to good noisy textures. Other side with piercing electronics and tormenting animal sounds. While being good, it is 2010 recordings, what means the best of Altar of Flies was yet to come...

BASTARD NOISE / GEROGERIGEGEGE split7"
Bastard Noise does short tracks of vocals and electronic noise. Few sounds that I'm not too excited about, but as usual, they do good job in their typical style. Gerogerigege rocks on with more Ramones kind of way. Hardly the best thing either band did, but I can say that I'd still buy any missing piece of either ones 7"s if there is some.

I've been buying a lot of old stuff. What are the best recent 7"s (noise/industrial/exp.)? Thanks!

Home alone for a couple of hours and here's the result.

Nyodene D: Caged Dog / Common Criminal (Phage Tapes)

“Caged Dog” has rough metal junk, very good shouted vocals and minimal synth background. Works fine with very simple and effective means.
“Common Criminal” is the same sans scrap metal and more fx on vocals. Not bad / not great to my taste.

V/A: Engines Of Modern Dysfunction Vol.1 (Phage Tapes)

Seven artists on 45rpm 7”. Yeah, it’s fast, sharp and loud, cut-up noise by bigger and smaller names of the sub-genre. Both sides are over sooner than you think and on side one I couldn’t be sure where one track ends and other starts. No problem, works fine this way. Side two is slightly easier to follow I guess. Seems that A Fail Association and Baculum are names I need to get more familiar with.
Nice locked groove ending that you can easily listen to as long as the actual tracks.
Great cover art. More volumes of this please!

John Wiese: Mixed Metaphor / Into A Bad Way (Phage Tapes)

Excellent harsh noise! No tricks’n’gimmicks, just blast like there’s no tomorrow. Hails!!! Some of the source material for this was provided by Masami Akita and yes, this is reminiscent (especially on side two) of golden era (ie. mid 90s) Merzbow.

Custodian / Pusdrainer split (Phage Tapes / Dead Pope Productions)

Custodian does harsh noise in rather Japanese way with lots of short loops, some cut-ups and overall free-flowing feel. Sound itself or timbre or whatever doesn’t seem to change that much but the way the loops and cuts act brings much variation to the whole. Very good.
Pusdrainer sounds very violent with just screamed vocals, feedback and delay effect. Maybe it’s just vocal mic going through distortion and play pedals to amp? There’s some Masonna touch here, but not as extreme. Works fine and with a short dose like this there’s no need for more. A longer whole would of course need something else.

Faux Pas / Grain Belt split (Phage Tapes / White Centipede Noise / Small Doses)

Faux Pas is high energy harsh noise with live feel. Loud and joyful Good stuff.
Grain Belt is more composed with distinct layers of sound. Harsh scrap metal (loop?) is especially great, and other rumble and feedback fit well on top of it. Killer track in finest US noise tradition.

K2: Iron Kulture (Self Abuse)

Klassik stuff. Innovative movement and full spectrum of variation in sound.

Bad SectorDolmen (Drone Records)

A very good 7” of quite simple, rhythmic dark ambient. It’s highly atmospheric synth music and the record is a good example of how what works perfectly on a 7” would probably be too simple for a full-length to be exciting throughout. The only letdown is the mundane vocals that appear a few times on side A: someone is saying one or two words that I can’t make out, and it’s just really out of place. Anyways, these interruptions are luckily too short to really affect the atmosphere of the music.

The HatersHello Hater (Pinch A Loaf Productions)

Great noise in the style of The Haters: erosive, absurd, single-minded. It starts and ends with a girl leaving messages on GX Jupitter-Larsen’s answering machine; in between there’s static distortion with repeating short sounds on top. Great 7” with a funny cover.

OrganumOrganum (Sonaria)

According to Discogs, this is side B of another 7” (Crusade) repeated 6 times on side A and 5 times on side B. This is another crazy idea by David Jackman, but it works quite well. So what you get is short (less than a minute) burst of noise with silence between them. The piece itself is distorted noise, a bit like early Organum, with nice undertones buried underneath.
