H.N.A.S - Melchoir - Thought I had sold this a long time ago.  Glad I didn't.  Not as annoying as a lot of the other stuff from them I have heard.

Played the LP couple times during last couple of weeks. Perhaps the "not as annoying as..." is good description, which can be said about a lot of cut-up's and sound collages. There are lots of great sounds and yet despite my hecticly storming brain not always able to focus, but in the style such as this, the sound snippets so quickly moving to next, sometimes seemingly without much aim, pushes it in very edge of annoying & genious. After all, I do prefer Christoph Heemann solo works over any HNAS I have purchased.
embarrassed to say, I have never really listened to Christoph Heemann solo works.  My friend, who is obsessed with Mirror, recorded me a copy of 'Solaris',  and I still enjoy it quite a bit , not as much as my friend, but I I understand how someone would appreciate this.

The only other record I have from HNAS is 'Kuttel Im Frost', which is probably the reason I am not a big fan.  I listened to it all the way through, maybe once or twice, and there are some really beautiful passages, and some interesting music, but I really can't deal with the constant abrupt changes, and annoying bits of 'experimental' or whatever someone would call it.  The Melchoir is close to 'music', albeit strange sounding. I suppose it stands out in that respect

Isn't Melchoir recorded with/produced by NWW/Stapleton?
I guess it can make a difference compared the works done without him?

I have played several times Ättestuspa tape and LP. Tempted to praise them more, but there will be review in next SI.

Now giving another play to Wutanes Heer 7". Listened this while ago, despite being decent didn't feel it was spectacular. Made me wonder how come I never took this 7" back in 1998 when it could have perhaps stood out a bit more? Crushing bass-heavy noisy loops that are heavy and slow. Some coarse vocals, few organ tones. Presentation of album makes you think about some martialmusic/neofolk project at their hardest, with old euro war references, yet in the end, perhaps closest modern references would be Deathkey meets Pestdemon, with less things going on. Perhaps put together on 4-track and most often not even using all the layers. If artist could have cut out few weak moments and replaced with some better material, this 4 song 7" would be more recommended.

Funeral Mongoloids - Fuck is Best When God is Dead - Good Noisecore is a pretty scarce thing these days (with the exception of Deep Jew and Air Conditioning it is pretty much a dying breed), usually it's wimpy art-school drop out shit or talentless and shallow attempts at fusing one scene with another, usually Grindcore but most recently Sludge has been taking the hit. FM are more Noise than "core", all of their albums are great, this one is so far the best and apparently members of Mutant Ape and Seppuku are featured as "bonus mongos". This one features a lot less sound clips and movie samples which have been heard on prior releases. This time the static mess of shouting, feedback and muddled walls of noise come straight at you. Blasting and quick pieces scattered with abrupt tempo changes and guttural howling vocals. Side B swirls around featuring deep bass guitars, blastbeats, pedal abuse and hopeless shouting at times this feels like straight up Noise.

Mortville is doing 99 band comp CD, which I would think would include plenty of noisecore? I think should be out this summer.

I've only heard a select number of Mortville bands and wasn't impressed with many of them. I can't recall names but I would assume it was a compilation since all the music sounded different. From what I remember it was mainly quick Grindcore songs with lo-fi production and a few stabs at Noise, nothing that blew my mind. When it comes to Noisecore I am very picky, only a handful of bands impress me including those mentioned above. The latest Noisecore that I took a quick liking to was Fernows Tortured Hooker which somehow manages to create really good noise with grind elements (some would argue it is the other way around) and it doesn't end up sounding like that completely talentless non-sense that comes from the familiar "I'm just doing it to do it" attitude which bleeds into the actual music and you can sense/hear it right off the bat, unfortunately this seems to be the current state of Noisecore.

TAM QUAM TABULA RASA fabula rasa CD (Old Europa Café)

Italian group active since late 80's. I have not heard more than the excellent "Laborobiginis" tape on ADN prior to this, later work from 2001. While the earlier tape is pretty rough looping industrial (imagine a softer K2 maybe, with added, now somewhat dated, soundpark) this is more into world of guitar drone but still with looped, concrete elements. Bought cheap from clearance sale AND released on OEC so I was a bit worried it would be much worse than it actually was. While some of the tracks could have been scrapped most part is good and worthy repeated listenings. Cover features very standardized penciled sex drawings - could have lived without those anytime.

Went to Hospital yesterday and came away with some stuff I've been meaning to get for a while.

Highlights of what I've been going through

v/a - Hoga Nord LP - this was really different than what I expected and 100x better. I love the atmosphere and the sort of creepy, musique concrete style of a lot of it. Really wish I had got this sooner

Incapacitants - Box is Stupid 10xCD - working my way through this one. great so far and the packaging is really nice

Lifelover - Erotik CD - really unusual metal that sometimes gets a little to mainstream sounding but then goes back into more twisty and harsh areas.

Incapacitants / Sewer Election - split 12"

Sewer Election - Dedicated to Belgium cassette

Hoor-paar-kraat - Handy Feet cassette

BLOOD AXIS "born again" CD
what the hell! BA has gone so professional, it has very little of clumsy noisy early days atmosphere. Now it's about the most professional neo folk band... after Sol Invinctus? Real instruments, real studio sound, real compositions,... well. This is good! Some nice lyrics, still the obscure underground wibe of low spoken/sung male voice as opposed to some more merrier folk vocals.

Prurient "history of aids" CD
Got the LP re-issues while ago. And was tempted to listen it again. Well, due conditions, didn't have turntable in the place I was spending several hours, but good speakers and cd player. So, instead of vinyl, just put the old original CD on player. It is pretty much what I remembered. In its strengths and weaknesses. I have always valued Prurient into high ranks of noise, yet it's hard to point out perfect release. Not even History of Aids is one. It has brutal heaviness on bass department. It has crispy high end crackles and distortions. But often sound is very suffocated and kind of "ready to burst".. but simply won't. There is like rumbling bass frequency and broken snap & crackles which sounds as if your speakers are ready to break. But sound will not be fully unleashed. Harshly malformed pitch/distort vocal effects break the surface with high pitched attacks, but noise itself rarely attacks fiercely. Many songs (there's 15 in 45 mins) are short 1 minute type of bursts. Grande finale of the cd is long simple tone, going through distorted filtering. Slowly modulated static tone, is kind of trademark backbone of many "PE" type Prurient recordings after this. Strength of album is absolutely fact that there isn't another noise cd like this. One can think about Masonna, Randy Yau,.. even Sutcliffe Jugend or such. And then come to conclusion that any link to them would be clueless and just inaccurate. Philosophy and the sound, is unique. And that's something what can be respected. But sonically, I still prefer albums such as "Fossil", "Black Vase" (2xLP edition with the nasty feedback track!) and "Arrowhead", where sound is more piercing and violent than low end rumbling and crackles. I really hope LP versions of Fossil or/and Arrowhead will be done! Especially latter, since I unfortunately only own the advance copy CDR, not even the real CD.

I heard Dom say that he wasn't really that pleased with Arrowhead so I think chances are lower that it will be released on vinyl.


edit

Iron Fist of the Sun - Blush - holy shit. This is fucking great. A really clean, hi-fidelity sound but still raw. I love it especially A3, Feel The Boot. Rhythmic and snarling.

AHLZAGAILZEHGUH "Enemy of the future" TAPE (Truculent)

Long time since I listened to any harsh noise but this was a refreshing experience! I don't know if it had anything to do with being able to play it at loud volume on boombox in the cellar of my day work? Good stream of sounds with enough variation - C20 tapes with one track per side also works good for this type of noise.

Otto Mühl - AAM 1 LP

Pretty enjoyable aktionist tomfoolery. Nonsense singing to jazz-tinged rhythms and generally teutonic humour on side A. Side B includes also some lady giving the lowdown on her parents and other group therapy -type madness. The only problem I have is with the annoying distortion on the first part of side A. Is it on the original master tape, does it come from the vinyl transfer of this "grey area"  reissue or what? I dunno but it really bugs me...

Also been listening to the first two discs of the new Kevin Drumm - Necro Acoustic 5CD. Very very nice, can't wait to explore the rest. This man does not disappoint.

Deathpile "Ne Plus Ultra" ??

Well, I can't see any connection, than.. well, it's heavy. But Ne Plust Ultra is layers over layers of effected & distorted synths. With some buried vocals.
I always thought that it was perhaps musically one of the best Deathpile, but vocals could have been louder. While something like Deathpile/Discordance LP DP side has too loud vocals. It was rare case when they got everything just perfect. G.R. has great vocals, but in end vocal sound same in all tracks and the noise aggressive yet less depth & dimension.
Sound of Ne Plus Ultra with vocal strength of G.R. and some old style DP effects in some tracks. Perfect DP album? Could have been.
