Sutcliffe Jugend - When Pornography Is No Longer Enough CD. Took me a while to find a reasonable priced copy, would be nice if this get's a reissue (on vinyl). Listened to this a few times in a row today in my car. Such a great PE album. Creepy atmosphere, dynamic noises and left me wanting for more due to it's length. Since i've only heard fragments; is The Victim As Beauty CD in the same vein?

Maaaa ‎– Decay And Demoralization
I'd never actually heard Maaaa until that excellent video with outdoors live performances was posted a while back in another thread, but upon seeing and hearing that I immediately decided to buy a few recordings and check them out properly. It's not only the album title on this one that has a certain Grunt vibe, but even so the style is not as dark, heavy or crypto-melodic as what can be found on Terror and Degeneration. In the end, there is little reason to go on about a comparison mostly caused by the title and the Ugric connection. This is solid, violent harsh noise with some industrial touches and a humongous variety of sound types and sources. Each track has a distinct identity, distinguishing it from the others, and it is rare that a sound overstays its welcome. Everything has a nice crunch, except for the few parts not meant to be overly crunchy, and this is an investment I am rather happy about. An additional thing to note is that everything here feels very deliberate, structured and well produced/mastered - if that is the case or not I don't know - and this could of course be a problem if you're in a certain type of mood. Since I'm not at the moment, I'm simply enjoying it.

Geography of Hell - Hiroshima 1945/Nagasaki 1945

Any soundsamples from this album available somewhere?

Great album minus the part that sounds like Star Wars.

BizarreSSMania “II” CD (Freak Animal, 2017)
        You already know if you'll like this without me having to tell you, so stop reading now if you're one of those people who gets all uncomfortable about this kind of stuff. Anyway, the real title was not-so-discreetly hidden in advertisements because you can't be too careful these days,

Actually real title is "II". It was labels mistake to leave the sketchy original book title used in back cover graphics into spines. But it would be good title, hah...

UNSUSTAINABLE SOCIAL CONDITION "Pleasure Seeking Pacifists" tape
Phage
Decent harsh noise blasting. One could almost call it harsh noise wall, yet it falls into old school of just being... heavy buzy, restlessly boiling and splattering sound wall. Fairly short play time, was it 20 minutes, makes it work well.

MACRONYMPHA "For Better of Worse" 3xtape
Phage
What USC tape above had strength was compact length. I'm not against long length, damn, I listen full day of noise many times, but when band puts out rather many releases... Since 2016, am I wrong but there is like 80 new Macronympha releases for 2 year period. Most of them on mr. Sabattos     Bizarre Audio Arts. It makes me wonder what is the actual output of original members here, and how much is just basically what would make these Armenia releases? Level of many of these releases are less than one would expect from Macronympha, and visually a lot of titles look rather poor. I wasn't much excited by most of new releases I heard. They all lacked what makes Macronympha good in their absolute killer works. This triple tape, is not bad. Not at all. It is fierce basic harsh noise, where enough variation within side, and between sides. But still makes me think that Macronympha of 1995 would have not been satisfied on this, but done way better. It would be quite miracle anyways. To expect that 80 releases later, within couple of years, they'd deliver utmost highlight, is quite unrealistic. Still, these guys have been making harsh noise so long, that they know how to deliver the decent assault of noise brutality. Listening through triple tape at one sitting - not a problem at all. That indicates it already being way better than my complaints let you understand.

KIRAN ARORA "Glare" tape
Skeleton Dust
However, comparing above Macronympha to this... It becomes rather clear that the really good noise is still better than fairly good. Kiran Arora has merely 1-2 tapes per year, proper 45-60 minute tapes. Texas noise artists falls well into americanoise's 90's spirit, but what really is spirit beyond crunch and neat tape saturation, is that A LOT of bands, despite being harsh noise, are some how extraordinary. It's not "the same", and sounds themselves has distinctive nature what won't let Kiran Arora stuff fall into just decent blasting, but even album worthy nature of focus on detail!

Masahiro Ikumi - Perfect Blue OST LP - Tiger Lab Vinyl
Listening to this again for the umpteenth time, there's a part of me that thinks this is perhaps the best soundtrack of all time. Better than Blade Runner, better than Escape From New York, better than Profondo Rosso. A major point in it's favor, as it's presented here, is that you get six complete tracks rather than a collection of short cues and themes. So it's very much a stand alone album. even for a suspense/horror anime the music is deeply uneasy and uncomfortable. a mixture of queazy ambient, distant guitar noise, industrial rhythmic pounding and wordless vocals. it's very polished, deeply layered and dynamic. there's no hint of cheesiness anywhere though the techno leanings of "Uchida's Theme" might be off-putting to some of readers here. but to my ears it's quite literally perfect.

And personally I'd love to get a copy of the original CD with the JPop tracks from the movie interspersed throughout the album. they're solid in their own right, especially if you know the lyrics from the film, and they help ratchet up the anxiety when listening to the album as a whole.

just listen to this excellence!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=HWNMb6RmWWE

Samantha Glass “Introducing The Confession” CS (No Rent, 2017)
        Really intriguing and immersive minimal electronic music from artist also (un)known for more industrial, PE-ish material under the name Victor Portsmouth. Although I haven't heard that stuff, I'll definitely be checking it out – as this is pretty top-notch. Very dreamy and ethereal without being totally stereotypical two-note goth haircut keyboard bullshit, good for background multitask listening without relying too much on stock-drone ethereality (I.E. atmosphere is achieved through effort, not factory presets). When focused on with proper attention, the atmosphere seems almost offensively intimate, sort of like the tapes from JH1.FS3. But what do you call this, genre-wise? I don't really know; some tracks have processed vocals, others samples, one even has a Patsy Cline sample in lieu of vocals. Some have a weird approach to sound collage involving almost indiscernible field recordings and unintelligible police scanner recordings, but all have an underlying current of minimal melodic and rhythmic synth work. Really great stuff with an ultra-modern, sleek n' stylish post-industrial vibe that I normally am (ahem) a bit skeptical of, but here seems to fit perfectly. Would definitely appeal to some of the Strange Rules and Posh Isolation crowd in terms of sound, but I don't think that's bad in this case. Here, I'm thinking Kyo, Vanessa Amara, Olymphia, stuff like that. If you can tolerate that kind of thing, you'll like this.

Pool “Jim Day Upholterer” CS (No Rent, 2017)
        Crude yet somehow kind of sleek minimal noise-collaged nothingness from a handful of guys whose names I don't recognize. Sounds like this could be one person as much as it is apparently a group, as there is not a lot here. We get a variety of popping, warbling, and synth blurting sounds alongside some other obscure and momentary noises and field recordings, this isn't another static “study.” Things never even come close to getting loud or harsh, even at high volume. There's an obvious use of acoustic and everyday sound here, so this kind of rests in that nebulous place that is not noise, sound collage or musique concrete, but plenty would see it as being all three. Lots of weird warping effects and strange mixing/placement choices. You'd think this would be pretty lo-fi, and some sounds are, but mostly it just has this “medium grey” quality that helps blend everything together. I can't tell if either side is the same exact piece, or different mixes of the same basic sound pallette, but I suspect they're more or less different. I think this would appeal greatly to the vintage-obsessives but also to anyone who wants an example of something being done today outside of any reference to anything else. I guess it's vaguely like some of the stuff from Stewart Skinner. I like this very much but I get the feeling it'd be nauseating if you listened while suffering from food poisoning or a bad hangover. Otherwise quite relaxing and pleasant. Apparently this project is on a couple of pretty obscure compilations and I'd like to check those out.

SONIC DISORDER ‎– Travelers' Companion Volume III LP (Les Disques Bruitistes)
Who's this fella? Seems to have been very active throughout the years, but I've never heard the guy before. Just an LP in a white disco sleeve without any inserts. No date on the label, just the titles etc. Weird, very lofi sound experiments using tapes, objects and some samples. Hard to place this kind of stuff on a timeline. It fits well on the label, LDB, but could just as well have been released five years ago on Hanson. Curious thing, this one. I think I like it.

Some US weirdo who recorded tons of noise/shitnoise/noisecore/weird stuff in the mid 90's and put out a billion tapes and split tapes back then. I'm afraid I'm usually more interested in the bands he made splits with than in him in general though.

Used to really dig his early (90's) output - the travellers companion II tape for example etc... to the extend i featured him on a comp. tape i did back then. I remember it had field recordings, chainsaw sounds, screams, ...  But yeah, a shit ton of releases indeed and i didn't really follow his output anymore. Might check this one out though.

Sickness / Slogun - The Scars of Happiness / Always Numb CD - PacREC/Troniks
Been a while since I've listened to this one. Great Sickness material. Loud as hell and starts of strong. Just classic cut-up madness. While I definitely dig the more restrained darkness of Ruiner and Mudlark, its the non-stop onslaught stuff that really gets me going. the Kill to Forget remix or whatever it is is damn good too. As for the Slogun track, I've never been the biggest fan and this one leaves me feeling meh. One day I'll have to dig into his extensive discography but today is not that day.

Bizarre Uproar - Purification CD - F&V
This was my favorite BU album for a long time, but again, hadn't listened to it in years. Goddamn if it's not still great. Especially the first 3 tracks which are just damn perfect. I have to laugh at how much this influenced my first few years of CM recordings. in terms of the chronology of BU albums it serves as an interesting transition album between the hi-fi metal and loop madness of Unsafe and Insane and Liha-Evankeliumi and the later dirge albums like Rape Africa and Vihameditaatio. And to me, probably the closest to full on power electronics that BU has gotten. still a classic.

Kevlar - New Fears New Fights CD - Unrest
Really enjoying this one. A bit cleaner and more balanced in the production. The vocals are more distinguishable too which makes me happy. But there's no track that grabs me by the balls like Doctrine Over Person from Criteria. At least not yet. Generally it benefits from loud listening, though it can compare to the supremacy of the UFoI III live set. An easy album to listen to on repeat though and definitely recommended!

Abscheu - Pretense cassette - Unrest
Digging this one even more than the new Kevlar. There's nothing wildly groundbreaking or even super complex, just extremely effective use of sounds and themes to create a very engaging listen from start to finish. probably my favorite "heavy electronics" release since Am Not's Unpunished. mandatory purchase!!

Sektor 304 - Soul Cleansing CD - Malignant - my first exposure to Sektor 304 and the soundtrack to my last two semesters of college, specifically finals. it was just the right amount of intensity and misery. Body Hammer and Death Mantra remain my favorites but like everything Sektor 304 has done, it's best taken as a whole.

Sektor 304 - Subliminal Actions CD - Malignant - waited on this one for a bit after it came out. I didn't think lightning would strike twice, let alone twice as hard. everything sounds more massive, everything hits harder. it sounds utterly alive and organic. and there's a nice arc from the aggressive first third to the expansive sounds of the last third.

Sektor 304 - Live Reactions CD - New Approach - honestly listening to this again, it's like an improved version of Soul Cleansing. I think I prefer it to the studio album. and the percussion must be praised!

Sektor 304 - Communiphones CD - New Approach - and then Sektor 304 hits you with this great ambient-industrial album that's all simmer and swell. the sound of lead boiling.

I bought the Engage... Forwards box set from New Approach when it came out and it's honestly the gift that keeps on giving. If you're into Sektor 304 I highly recommend getting all of the non-album stuff in one go. totally worth it for the $ and it looks fucking great.

I feel like I heard at some point recently that Sektor 304 split up? can anyone confirm or deny cause that'd be a goddamn shame. when I reach for modern industrial it's either this or Ke/Hil.

Thanks for the info. Still a bummer but at least I've got something new to check out. I wonder why they called it quits?
