Pimp Aktion-Slutgun LP.
Loooong awaited record, being the slightly cut version of original nearly unreleased C-60 tape on Zero Cabal. Nearly - because I think the planned anti LP packaging never happened, but some copies of tape with insert was sent around. I happened to get it back then, and thought the rough and crunchy noise was just too dull to capture my attention compared the genius works of Streicher. Years later, I listened tape again, and it was much much much better than my old memories. And now when I listen this LP, I must say this is my impression still. It is simple, crunchy and relatively low fidelity harsh noise wall, yet it has this "non pedal" sounding overdrive in all what happens. Making is very tasty and nice sounding, not too distorted. Not too thin. Not too processed. The moaning or howling voice is such a demented thing, when it arrives once in a while, you rarely hear such element in noise! Totally brilliant! I don't know if it's just the lack of very high crispy sounds combined with dry extra cold weather (-25 *C or whatever..), but surface noise is pretty extensive. Snap, crackle and pop is there constantly.

I was informed LP is not cut. I had original tape on C-60, but seems like material is actually c. 22 +22mins = uncut LP. So if you hesitated to order because of that, don't!

Anenzephalia - Noehaem (LP, Tesco/Zaetraom): Started weird with the first track being kind of classical music (dark, subdued kind of but still), not what I expected, then the second track starts with electronics, but in a way compliments the first track very well, so this works fine. (That first track in itself is good as well, just was not what I expected, hehe.) Overall this is some really good Death Industrial. Really like this LP.

Try listening to this album and nothing else for an entire day. Preferably when not leaving the flat/house. What at first seems boring and non eventful evolves into a truly oppressive album if given enough time and effort. It'll make you feel quite anxious and uncomfortable. The first time this album really hit me was when I was stuck in one of the many never ending queues in the London rush hour. Perfect!

Just wondering, don't you mean the Leichenlinie album? Because as far as Noehaem goes, I don't have the feeling it's monotonous, whereas I said something along these lines about Leichenlinie.

I wouldn't consider Leichenlinie a monotonous album.

If someone can advice for more stuff like this, please go ahead!! Perhaps not the cleanest pressing heard in world of vinyl, yet sound is so suitable for vinyl format.

You might like the Carlfriedrich Claus - Lautaggregat cd. Not quite as noisy as Chopin at his wildest but shares some of the same rough quality that is missing in a lot of sound poetry. Reminds me also of aktionists, Otto Mühl especially. The cd is available at least from Tochnit Aleph, not cheap but very much worth it. And it seems that the audio can also be downloaded from Ubuweb, along with other stuff that I haven't checked out. I think TA is going to release a retrospective set sometime soon?

Alga Marghen vinyl pressings are not the best, unfortunately. And the problem seems to shared by some other Italian labels as well, I guess they are all using the same pressing plant?

Definately not the album in its entirety, but some of the tracks sound a bit monotonous. Anyway, as said, it's a grower (for me at least).

I didn't have Leichenlinie in mind. I don't rate that album very much at all. In it's day I can see why it had an impact but unlike for example Remember, or even In-Konflikt, I don't think it has stood the test of time that well.

Noehaem is a monotonous album and like all the best bands who employ the tactics of tedium to wear the listener down there is a lot more hidden beneath than what first meets the ear. It's one of the heaviest albums I've ever heard. Possibly one of the heaviest albums ever made.

Oh, ok, my mistake.
It might indeed be monotonous, but this is an album I liked from the first listening though. Though I believe there's a lot to hear further than the first listen.
Now that we're talking about Anenzephalia anyway: how do their other albums comparte to this?

When I say monotony I don't mean it in a negative sense, I mean it as a description of sound or style based on repetition. To me monotony is it. The fast paced cut up style noise and improv stop start jazz shit give my ears cancer of the cock. It's no good.

The best Anenzephalia I've heard is the Live in Boras CD. The last 7" Projected Void is sheer brilliance. The New World Disorder and Sender Mussen Schweigen EP's are good while Ephemeral Dawn is so so. I haven't heard Lyse or the first LP Fragments of Demise. Both of them go for mega money but people whose judgement I trust say they are quite shit so I'm not worried about not having them.

I haven't heard everything of course but my impression is that Anenzephalia in general hold a higher standard than GO on compilations.

Also, when I mentioned great GO albums before I forgot to include The Truth Will Make You Free. That one is IMO the best album they've done. If you don't have it then there's something to look forward to.

Oh, the new Anenzephalia album was announced a couple of days ago.

I see what you mean now (sorry, my brain is a bit slow today it seems). I do like some of the totally chaotic stuff, but indeed stuff like Anenzephalia has much more atmosphere and works on an different level.

Thanks for the information! Apart from the Juche comp, I don't own anything else from either GO or Anenzephalia. Sounds like Anenzephalia is definately worth to check out further. That new track sounds good, almost ambient-like, I like this.

grating & pounding industrial by Cazzodio, but not the beats/sampling/programming like Cazzodio.....sounds very digital but with very destroyed sounds. one of those releases that sits around in distro's for cheap for ages....

Deterge - Intellect - Pummelling and brutal. Two 9 minute slabs of grinding Power Electronics with up-front vocal attacks and damaged crackling rumbles. This is just swelling with activity and movement. I need to hear more from this artist. Does anyone know who is behind this?

Swollen Korps - Erect in Blood - This was the very first release by this mysterious Industrial act. The second, "Better To Destroy A Child Than Repair A Man" which came out last year, was 2010's best P.E./Industrial release in my opinion. I owned "Erect in Blood" before I heard the other release and just recently decided to go back to it with fresh ears. Side A is two tracks that both add up to just over 12 minutes. There is a very cold, lo-fi repetition going on here. A good amount of synth action that isn't sharp (although there is some instances where bits and pieces of feedback poke around in the background) nor is it thick and rumbling, it is more in between, a tumbling static somewhere in the middle ground as far as tone is concerned. The use of victim samples is perfectly placed as are the curious and original high-pitched wailing vocals that punctuate the slow burning atmosphere. Side B is a 15 minute discussion between Otis Toole and Lucas about their case, which is very uninteresting, although it may have something to do with the subject matter on Side A but I can't be certain.

SHIFT "morose" tape
very good. It's good it came out now, since I believe upcoming split with SS will simply CRUSH, but this tape is still very good. Monolith blocks of droning heavy noise with vocals. Good length and presentation.

BIZARRE UPROAR live CD
pretty good sound overall. Includes his solo gigs and with various featuring members, which gives different gigs different feeling. It's not same thing over and over again, but each one is relevant to be on the CD!

Teater "absolutenothing" CD
People were not kidding when they praised this. Last track is perhaps little too much of test tone frequency torture, but rest of the CD, damn tasty Italian PE, including also cover of PE anthem Can't Stand That Bitchy Chick! What a sexy artists photos too. Center fold!

Cabaret Voltaire - Red Mecca cd
Continuing my neverending project: "Getting acquainted with the classics". I never paid any attention to these guys, a mistake it seems. Very, very good stuff. Just enough funk/black influences to make things flow and still not sound cheesy/contrived. Sounds aggressive and yet quite subtle. What are the other essential releases from them? I guess they took a sharp turn towards pop charts at some point?

Just enough funk/black influences to make things flow and still not sound cheesy/contrived. Sounds aggressive and yet quite subtle. What are the other essential releases from them? I guess they took a sharp turn towards pop charts at some point?

While their first three albums (Mix-Up, Voice Of America and Red Mecca) all are quite essential, for me the Cab's were also very much a singles band. Some of their absolutely finest moments were issued on 7" slabs of wax, and were conveniently collected on the Living Legends double-LP. I'd try to hunt that one down if I were you; it's been re-released on CD and is not hard to find.

After Red Mecca they went even more funky and saxophone-heavy on 2x45 before they started aiming for the dance floors with The Crackdown (still a very good album though) and Microphonies. From there it went all downhill - the transition into a commercial venture had been completed.

Hell, this year marks the 30th anniversary since I bought Red Mecca, my first brush with the industrial subculture together with TG's Heathen Earth
