On the last two weekends, I listened on repeat to - Organoid- "Bitsevsky Maniac" and Flagellatio Orgasmus- "Criminal Russia" CDs, both on Filth&Violence.

When I got them some months ago, I only listened once or twice, thought I wasn't too impressed and filed them away. After reading the interview in the NEUESACHLICHKEIT book, I decided to listen again. And damn, they are fucking great. Definitely want more.

Just watched a couple of the IPoS DVDs, phew!

Does anyone know where I can find the last two?

Also someone on here posted a link to an interview with the dude from Bizarre Uproar. Could someone direct me to that too?

MERZBOW "Life Performance" CD
Cold Spring
Great to see Cold Spring to finally put out actually good Merzbow CD! I think none of the many merzbow items label has done, has stood out as particularly great. Of course some are ok. This, being re-mastered re-issue of 1985 tape, that goes into harsh noise category, yet still full of loops, tape manipulations and such is example of good era where even standard merz-noise stands out!

From 2015-2017, what releases have been re-releases from the 80s like this one?

Current Worming “Untitled” CS (Dogmatics In Outline)
        So-called “noise” can sometimes be a strange thing when looked at objectively. Case in point, there's the most recent tape from Current Worming. This tape could easily have been recorded and released by a Danish (?) project called Corrosion, but it's a Canadian project called Current Worming. To be fair, I have to wonder what makes me like Current Worming that much more than Corrosion; by that I mean this tape is probably my least favorite CW effort so far. It's not bad, but it just doesn't have the character of the previous and therefor lacks it's main strength.
        Yes, it's good, as in crunchy, “real” noise with acoustics, an “organic” feel and some great loop sections etc., but it's lacking a certain emotive or energetic quality much like Corrosion in my opinion does as well. There are some admirable textures and in some moments on the second A-side track, very tasty resonance/acoustic junk, as well as a very nice loop on the latter half of the B-side, but overall it's a bit too compressed with overlong meandering sections that have force but not a lot of power. Higher frequencies are just kind of crunched out of the mix. I'll easily concede I could be just turning into more of an asshole, in that other CW fans will probably not be as picky as me – still worth getting if you liked what you heard on other CW tapes.

Publication Ban “Miranda” CS (Dogmatics In Outline)
        Again, “noise” et al can be a strange thing – another example of what makes you question how is one project at all separate from another (including my own). Here in the latest Publication Ban tape, side A's “Role Play” sounds suspiciously like the above project, Current Worming: pounding background rhythm at various mid-pace speeds underneath a flow of mid-bassy, full-sounding blown out crunch, moving on to some shrill acoustic scraping (presumably) and then including some nice feedback/high-pitched whistling tones. This could pretty much be CW – I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same person/people, or if one project is the solo project of a member of the other. This is pretty tasty, though, with an emphasis on high-end over lows that is very much my kinda thing. Latter part of A-side reminds me just a little bit of Incapacitants or Gelsomina, oddly enough. Some piercing, chime-like sounds end the track very nicely.
        Interview/interrogation sample opens the B-side track “Stage Distribution” laid on top of hissing, shrill feedback-type noise. Fluttery texture not unlike Peter Kurten/RTK-era Whitehouse. When the sample drops in volume, a grinding tone momentarily overtakes things before getting quiet and more slight, quiet feedback slices in. When sound is reduced to just the generator tone and slashes of the tinny feedback/chime sound, it's perhaps the best highlight before a louder, mid-range crunch sort of bulldozes everything and then gives way to glassy, tinny, thin-sounding junk clatter and stops abruptly. If it weren't for the sample, I'd say this just should have been another Current Worming tape, maybe released instead of the above. Not bad, but I hope the label goes for more adventurous efforts in the future.

Last year Urashima did Lowest Music.2 and Remblandt Assemblage. Can't comment on content / quality, though.

I very much enjoyed Lowest Music 2 and Collection 009. I didn't love all of Remblandt Assemblage however, if that's the one with the acoustic guitar bits in it, which seemed to drag on and on. I am definitely looking forward to more of these Urashima reissues though.

Damien Dubrovnik - Great Many Arrows

Probably a contentious one, I'm not actually sure what the prevailing opinion of Posh Isolation/Loke Rahbek around here is. Personally hit and miss as a label for me, as Damien Dubrovnik delivers some brilliant ambient/industrial stuff but other stuff errs too much on the side of modern techno/electronica for me. Then there's some material totally separate from the industrial spectrum such as Vanessa Amara which is just beautiful piano/organ/string improvisation.
Of course then you have label stalwarts like Puce Mary, who is indisputably excellent at creating detailed and dynamic PE/industrial.

Great Many Arrows to me seems like the culmination of the best of a few different styles Rahbek has been trying for a few years. Some ostensibly "heavy" PE sounds, some long quiet atmospheric passages with snippets of field recordings or strange percussive instruments, and some very melancholy synth/organ/string melodies. It's certainly a far cry from early DD or stuff like Caucasian Colony but it's an interesting progression as an artist and one of my favourites from a year with a lot of other good releases within the PE/industrial/experimental circle.

Utzalu - The Loins of Repentance

https://vrasubatlat.bandcamp.com/album/vt-xv-the-loins-of-repentance

Some great noise passages in this black metal album. Top quality stuff as usual from Vrasubatlat- if you like Dagger Lust, Triumvir Foul, Knife Dagger, etc then you'll know what to expect from this label.

Ebola Disco - Discography
Cool stuff! At the beginning, I felt that some of the studio tracks could have used 10 - 20% more biting distortion, but I got into it and enjoyed myself. Some of the live performances seemed really damn powerful and aggressive. Very nice no-bullshit PE.

Am Not - First Morbid Vibrations
Contemporary Am Not is so strong and dominant that my initial fear was that this may suffer in comparison. This was not the case, though. Very nice and deep sounds, not quite as aggressive as some of his best new stuff, but still very musical and round. Certainly a very good idea to reissue this and recommended, of course.

Incapacitants - Mon, Ma, Mon?
Always an enjoyable act! This material was not quite as powerful as some other stuff for some reason, but still, second-best Incapacitants beats 90% of the rest. Very good live track at the end that sounded nice and harsh!

The opening sounds of that album took me by surprise, thought it sounded great and wasn't expecting it at all. The metal itself lacked a bit for me personally, especially in contrast to the noise.

Currently on a Black Metal trip

Ordo Templi Aeternae Lucis /  Blessed In Sin  ‎– Tu Fui Ego Eris
Always followed this circle of bands and loved their output. Blessed In Sin was a bit hit and miss in my ears though, songwriting has definitely improved on this release. Kristallnacht meets Varathron.

Die Kunst Der Finsternis  ‎– Das Geheimnis Des Vampirs
Hetroertzen main guy playing stuff that sounds like Darkthrone/Katharsis meets Mercyful Fate perhaps. Enjoying this much more than Hetroertzen.

Mooncitadel  ‎– As Nightwind Embraced And The Shadows Caressed...  
Early 90's style, complete with keyboards and main protagonist wielding a sword on the cover. Hope a vinyl version of this comes out.

Tenebrae In Perpetuum  ‎– Onori Funebri Rituali
A name I overlooked back in the 2000s when they were active. Immediately dropped $100 on a few LPs. Great riffs, hateful vocals. Relatively simple but I like that.

Lluvia  ‎– Premonicion De Guerra
Late to the party with this too, and kicking myself because it's fantastic and any albums cost a limb. Right amount of atmosphere and repetition to keep me engaged.

Demonomantic  ‎– Blessed in Eternal Cruelty
See above. This is fucking nuts black/death. Effected voices wavering in and out. Prefer this approach much more over Proclamation or other bands in the style.

One of my personal favorite black metal albums but the sophomore album is fantastic as well. Drumming/drum sound is just flawless, cold and piercing guitar work and vocals flow perfectly.

Congrats for scoring one!

And since I'm here... well, playing vinyl version of Oksennus "Valkoinen Jättiläinen" atm. Happy to get it from the band since buying from the label in China would've end up costing me close to 50€ for one LP and Kalle was kind enough to include the latest Hirveä demo in the package as well. One of the more daring and experimental death metal bands out there without coming across as pretentious, artfaggy or just plain annoying. Some of the members are active supporters of our noise/PE scene which is nice. These are not some pansies scared to get down and dirty as we like it here in Finland. About the pressing, from MPO so quality there. I had the self-released tape version of this already but only remember that it sounded a bit thin. This one might sound a bit better but at some points the bass is a bit overpowering which could've been fixed during mastering process. The music itself is top notch, totally crazy and unpredictable twists and turns yet all the members are in perfect sync. Like improv and math mixed together or free jazz with skill and direction in form of death metal. Not even a single annoying riff which is an achievement in itself when speaking about experimental metal music. The latest album, Sokea Idiootti is fantastic as well... I'm sucker for those doomy sections on that album. The Bestial Burst vinyl version sounds just flawless. Monolithic sound on that one! All around great band!
