Bizarre Uproar - Verikiima
I don't know, this one leaves me a bit confused and at the first listen some weeks ago, I thought that I was somehow a bit underwhelmed. But nonetheless I can't stop listening again and again. Not much vocals here or they are here but buried in the mix. And yes - sexy digipack!

IDEA FIRE COMPANY ”Live Aboard the Sinking Ship” C80 (Regional Bears):
Scott, Karla, piano, sparse horns, din of the boat. Long, simple and soothing album. Easy to loop all afternoon and lose track.

Vigilante Ecstasy: Yes, this is usual news broadcast in Finland. That was pretty lame stuff though, usually they elucidate the financial changes in communal sector with scat fisting and testicle torture.

Abysse – Bulles Noires. 3” CDR.

This is two live sets by this one-man French noise project known as Abysse. There have been several releases on Bandcamp, some self-released and on other labels. The project is also linked to the French Street Art scene; as marker pan artwork features on this release and many of the others. This recording collects two live performances to small, select audiences. This is linked to other projects including - The HNW Quartet, Static Park, The Future and Figures of Solitude amongst many others. The 3” CDR format is presented in a Black pouch with a White capital A patch sewn into it.

Minimalism is the key word for these unflinching repetitions of sound, it juxtaposes up 4 discreet sound elements together. Bulles Noires sounds like a locked grove surrounded by pulsating waves of sound jarring against each other. The sound subtly intensifies throughout the track with interventions of hissing noise. It reminds me of some of the aggressive loops used on early 70s, Krautrock albums. There is a feeling of controlled points of malfunction spread across the performance that serve as uncomfortable points of silence where the sound doesn’t really start up again as it continues in your head throughout the silence. The subtle variations of intensity are assertive through their impact on the works atmosphere.  Rising levels of static hiss don’t allow for the silence to be repetitive, they vary it.

The repetition makes this function on the same principles as HNW as it doesn’t really let up, when it pauses it is too late as it is etched into your brain, even when it ends suddenly. Despite not being so obviously aggressive, it is, as it zones you into the sound and you’re stuck inside. This process is repeated on both performances, but little is revealed. I’d like to see how this process works on a whole album, over more tracks or a very long one. The little black pouch contains a brief happening of sound that is difficult and uncompromising.

Stockhausen "Aus den sieben Tagen" 7x LP box
Deutsche Grammophon
1968 works, "from seven days" is 15 compositions. Besides few noisy and sort of infamous works of Stockhausen, this box is among my favorites of him at this moment. Characterized as "Intuitive music"—music produced primarily from the intuition rather than the intellect of the performers - says the description. So often reminding of free music, but it is still following clear patterns and each piece is different. Some are more to my taste than others, but I can easily play though entire box at once - of course if just time allows!
Shitty thing is that the vinyl box I have, is 2nd hand copy from the early 70's and surface noise is rather loud. I was looking if the CD version exists and stockhausen-verlag CD edition from early 90's seems to be priced starting from 350 euro at discogs... fuck! If someone would be selling it for 70 or perhaps even 100,- I'd be willing to grab it.

SEMA "Time will say nothing 1982-1984" 4xLP
Vinyl On Demand
At the time when VOD was putting out box after box after box after box of archival recordings, it started to become too much. Seeing how many boxes cumulated next to eachother and remain unopened. After cancelling subscription probably year before label stopped active series, suddenly I'm in situation where almost everything has been listened through. Things like 8xLP's of Current 93 seemed often too big task to get started, yet when actually going for it, 4xLP length seemed just good amount of stuff to sit down and take couple whiskey glasses while rotating through them.
Same with SEMA. 4xLP goes fast. Very physical and eerie, droning, yet musical experimental works featuring real instruments as well as experimental elements. Last album being just piano works, rather credited to Robert Haigh instead of his SEMA moniker.  Not long ago I was listening Robert Haigh CD on Art for Life. Haigh is supposedly well known for his drum & bass project, but as that genre is among things I do not listen nor want to know anything about, I know name mostly as NWW contributor type of things. His solo piano works are ghostly and great, yet I may have to say early SEMA works probably even better, due extensive amount of good sounds and ideas.

PISSOIR ROUGE / SCATMOTHER "physics dissolve in urine" CD
OFR
Out of handful of Scatmother related collaboration projects, this is so far my favorite! Thanks to really rugged and primitive sound. Not inventing a wheel, but finding the great tone and level of noise destruction. Last track is a bit useless compared to strength of album in general. Fans of filthy & violent won't be disappointed...

ULEX XANE "Stances Semblance" CD
Cipher
Got to listen this with more care later on. First impression was slightly confused. Not that it would be surprising that Ulex is very versatile artist. While famous for his brutal and raw power electronics/noise, he was actually member or the leader in some really amazing atmospheric ritual-industrial projects. Known for wide taste is music and art. This CD goes mostly to "art electronics". It looks and sounds as if attempted to represent academic electro-acoustic works, yet there is very much underground feel to it. While it's clean, and it is formatted in lay-out as if it was works on some state funded artmusic publishing house, it is nevertheless very underground look to it. Possibilities of digital recording and processing gives most people almost identical tools that enable delicate and quiet sounds processed what used to be near impossible some decades ago. I have yet to make final conclusions of material itself. At the moment it looks like Ulex is walking on direction very few probably expected. He could milk his Streicher legacy with making new brutal materials what would be probably more wanted than stuff like this. Yet I suspect this CD is more to his liking to show that he can be creative in many ways, not only produce something people expect to hear.

ENTRE VIFS "The harvest" tape
Cipher
This tape is another example of odd way how Cipher does his releases. I think many of labels CD releases are odd. New SK.MV is fine, yet barely CD album worthy collaboration of Skingraft & murderous vision. Stuff like Crumer + DJ EOF (wtf that is?), Smell & Quim + Onomatopoeia live collab cd release in 2014... and so on. A lot of weird choices to make factory pressed CD's, what are barely good albums. Just live stuff, quite random collaborations... but then the tapes! Damn, label put out so many good tapes in small pressing. This being one good example. Certainly album worth material in good packaging!

COMPOUNDEAD / TAKLAMAKAN split tape
https://www.discogs.com/Compoundead-Taklamakan-Compoundead-Taklamakan/release/2898242

from 2011, but a keeper for compoundead!! taklamakan is still of the "endless black blob" variation here, and would later evolve into the junkyard/swamp thing stuff.... compundead from italy is already there. sounds like searching for a screwdriver through a washing machine full of bricks, very active destruction and overall tekemisen meininki!! broken machinery falling down the stairs noise. wonder what else they have.... this one is xlent.

Order Of Darkness - Esoteric Satanism 10"
I heard some of their previous releases. Stock standard raw Black Metal, nothing stood out and the vocals were always a bit on the weak side and the mix didn't help. This EP is a slightly different case as they've mixed BM and electronics. The Black Metal material is again nothing amazing, cavernous type atmosphere like every other Portuguese band around and the electronics is nowhere near as harsh as listener opinions and press releases would have you believe. That said - it is far more interesting than anything else they've done previously, even if only for a short time.

Dark Worship ‎– Fullmoon Over My Castle
Noise drenched Black Metal. Great nasty vocals and riffs. Reminded me of Belketre in parts. Shame it was limited to an exclusive cassette.

Human Larvae - Methods Of Submission tape
I find it difficult to find a fault with this project. Consistent with every release and no exception here. If you're not onto HL by now you're fucking up.

Stockhausen "Aus den sieben Tagen" 7x LP box

you can still buy the 7CD-set from the stockhausen verlag directly for 102 euro. the reason why the stockhausen cd's are so difficult & expensive to buy is that they don't offer wholesale prices so only very few shops / mailorder even bother stocking them.

here is the pdf pricelist of available titles:

based on the excellence of relatively blind purchase of Dissecting Table's "Zigoku", the related Dissecting Table thread and comments here on his work, I decided to dig deeper into his back catalogue. and after finding someone one discogs who was basically selling his whole Dissecting Table discography for cheap I cleaned up! Averaged out to about $4.50 a CD. Picked up: Between Life and Death, Ultimate Psychological Description II, Dead Zone, Music for Performance "Dead Body and Me", Human Breeding, Into the Light, Life and Non-Euclidean Geometry.

So I've been making my way through this huge amount of material and while I expected it to be a bit arduous it's just been a goddamn blast. Standouts so far are: Between Life and Death - a 8 relatively shorter tracks and a nice look into the various shapes DT takes over the next 10 albums. Dead Zone - my favorite so far. one long vocal track that actually works, two killer percussive whirlwind tracks, and uncomfortable zombie circus sounding closer. Life - hard to pick between the two Relapse albums but right now I'd go with this one. grinding metal madness!

Beyond Enclosure - Dungeon of Total Void CD - finally grabbed a physical copy of this one. really nice industrial/power electronics. it sounds too modern to be '80s p.e. or even '90s heavy electronics, but it definitely summons those vibes. lots of oscillating electronic pulses and bleeps, ultra-dispassionate vocals, repeated mantras. everything is put together so well in compact package, it's hard not to like. maybe it's not groundbreaking but its easy to enjoy, and that goes a long way.

IURTA - Notes Towards a Mental Breakdown CD - I don't know shit about dark ambient put I pick up releases here in there. I grabbed this one because I liked some of the Wolfskin stuff I heard before well enough and I'm into checking out anything André Coelho does so here we are. There are parts of this that sound like Sektor 304's more ambient/droning side, there's a fair amount of metal scrapping and there's of course slow bass pulses. I like it, for what that's worth. There's also a nice dichotomy between short, more active tracks, and larger ones that unfurl like storm clouds, the last track being the highlight.

OCHU - Unproduktiw MLP (Verlautbarung)
I was excited to see where OCHU would go after the rather peculiar Tvärsnitt LP, and I'm not disappointed. Soundwise it feels like a marriage of his present day approach to sounds and the rough racket found on his earlier cassettes. Layers of of squealing, chafing and rumbling looped field recordings, arranged and mangled by heavy but not sloppy hands. This heavy handed yet precise execution has me thinking of JEPH JERMAN's LP The Bray Harp, but this still reeks of OCHU. The master recording was sent to me a few months ago, and  while I loved it as it was, the vinyl artwork really lends it a bleak and hopeless air I didn't really pick up on just hearing the sound itself. It's not bleak as in boring though; there's always been a discrete semi-nasty sense of humor to Ochu's output, and that's still the case. Vipeholm industrial music. A late addition to last years "best of" list.

AMPH - Control LP (Verlautbarung)
I've had a rough mix of half of this album on tape for three or four years, and given the duos busy lives I didn't really expect it to ever be completed. But lo and behold! There's a deceptive calm over the whole album as there's so much more going on than what you'll hear upon the first listen. Segments of various kinds of unease come and go, relieving eachother beautifully. A couple of friends have called this album soothing, but I find it rather unsettling. Tape sounds dominate as usual, but there are a few surprises in this scary bag, such as alien sounding synth and weird grunts (and is that someone snoring in the beginning?). Demanding, but it will definitely grow from repeated rotation. Good stuff!

piled some Finnish CDR's from the past to be todays playlist.

Hinageshi Bondage "Pariisi Vuonna 1959" CDR
Nihil Market
2001 release of mr. Martinkauppi, known from a lot of projects but forum users may known him best as other half of Haare. Mostly live member, but also appears on some releases. His works from almost 20 years ago, disc still works fine. Surprisingly industrial, and also good. Perhaps a bit digital or "edited" feel to it, even if it may be quite hands on approach?

HALTHAN untitled CDR
self released
Is this unreleased? At least quick search from discogs or google didn't show that this 23 minute 5 track disc would have been properly released. Includes "loputon marssi", "untitled", "id-100", "täyttömaata", "katharsis (knee-deep in blood & shit" tracks. Not bad at all, actually. It's not best halthan, but this is probably... first? Or at least very very early. Track called "loputon marssi 2" appears on NBM labels 2007 CDR, so this would be sometime before that at least.

Squamata "Into The Folds Of The Angelic Skin" 3"CDR
Obscure Eruption
2006 recording, one member solo, brutal fucking harsh noise. Limited to 25 copies, so not very widely available. Squamata was intense as fuck, and FA archives still has 60 minutes of unreleased material. Yet this, being ltd 25 is barely better than unreleased. Intensity, brutality, energy are all top level. One of the rare replies from Finland to same era of Swedish harsh head rituals type of assaults.

These are on the way to me now and my expections have even grown higher now that i read this!
Very excited about this - i always had a soft spot for these 2 acts.

Âmes Sanglantes- Crackdown - hard to sit down and be able to listen to 12 hours of music straight through, so I've been listening to this release in chunks at a time recently.


Âmes Sanglantes  – Chindia Tower Impalements - probably my favorite A.S. release next to Murder Of Key. love the atmosphere on this release, hypnotic, pulsating noise/p.e.

Would love to hear the unreleased c60. Any thoughts on a FA issue tape of this?

VA - Extremism (12", 10 Label)
Compilation featuring Daniele Brusaschetto, Jansky Noise, Human Larvae, & Damaskin. A nice blend of experimental and industrial genres for an otherwise techno-centric label from Japan. Massively underrated.

Trou Aux Rats - Amour Et Sepulcre (12", Nashazphone)
Swampy ambient melodies from Romain Perrot. The latest releases on Egypt's Nashazphone are all great listens.

Taking a break from my Drum and Bass trip to listen to some real music. Half a bottle of decent wine and a Mariestad Export from the ferry have accompanied me on my journey.

Kommando R J F ‎– Sweet Slow Suicide TAPE
A 2018 re-issue of a vinyl I don't have. It is recorded on finest tape, with a cover non-coincidentally looking like a Segerhuva release, and it was given to me by a surprisingly slender young man on the outskirts of the capital of what was supposedly Sweden. Top notch stuff here - living, breathing power electronics/post mortem of the somewhat more laid back type. All star crew: when HKSO's vocals take center stage I'm almost listening to Alfarmania, but there is no doubt there are many minds at work. Dirt, psychosis, samples, noise, rumblings, the anxiety of the psychiatric ward brought to beautiful tape. Pure party music, to put it succinctly. Will need to get back to it to fish out all the subtleties, but given the line-up there is really little to fuzz about. Also, at the time of writing easily procurable off of discogs at a not-yet exaggerated price.

Funeral - Black Flame of Unholy Hate TAPE
French instaclassic from 1995. A precursor to Kristallnacht (the band, not the event), this band produced a demo full of almost-Norwegian sounding 90's black metal. This is the type of production you got back then; you used an engineer who had some experience with recording, but no idea what black metal was, and then you topped it off by never having your stuff mastered or remixed after the first mixdown. Excellent, in other words - quite clear, but not really too fleshed out and not at all "brutal" or metal in the post-Enthrone Darkness Triumphant sense. The sound is more warm and saturated than heavy, and it works just fine with the raw-yet-melodic riffs and arrangements. No bells and whistles here, but also no nails in a dishwasher, Abs Conditus style chaos. Oh to be 17 again and drunk in the woods listening to this off of some shitty boom box. Brutal vocals too, no fake. There were some Tr00 controversies around these guys too - apart from the NSBM angle (here expressed only quite subtly through the song title "Night and Fog"), one or two of the members were involved in a grave desecration where they exhumed a woman's body, though there is no particular reference to this event on the tape. In the monomaniacal fashion of many continental Europeans, the band put out a buttload of these, so original copies are still available at a decent price (though some may be bootlegged; generic tapes combined with b/w xeroxed covers and all). I also just now discovered a CD reissue including the edgier titles from their split with Osculum Infame as well as a Rotting Christ cover. Far from Deafheaven, this.
