Rudolf Eb.er: String Quintet and Ass Trumpet:

A very listenable to classical music that sounds to me to be describing a hard journey through something, a woman (crawling around the floor is how I picture it) screaming and howling and Eb'er occasionally talking and shouting in the background as something is dropped over and over again sometimes smashing into things.

Abandon - In reality We Suffer Use to adore this, slow and heavy sludge doom by which the singer died through an overdose, though shit. Well, it's still not bad and the tracks somnambulistic and in reality we suffer are still intense on high volume, but they take to much time for the buildup and when it's not intense in sound, it sounds to dull.

Remesh - Choke Remesh, Lietterpisch, Poochlatz, D9, don't know what these guys are up to these days, but these guys done some great things over in Israel, like this one. Long and creepy buildup, begins with dark wavering drone where more and more icy distortion and PE sounds creep in and some guy screams in the background. Of course this leads to an eruption and the guy screams his lungs out, good!

After a weekend in the studio recording a PE album and listening to nothing but PE for months to prepare, I've been caning old Blazebirth Hall black metal this week. Branikald and Forest.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DFJ3RtjPsg

Also been revisiting this underrated Ulver album, which was probably my first foray into anything that could tenuously be described as "noise" (in reality closer to ambient or musique concrete?). Regardless of genre it's an amazingly atmospheric album.

Also checked this out this morning which has added to my eternal regret of not attending Obscurex Fest:

Amazing live recording, very clear but still sounding filthy, vocals are top fucking notch.

Speaking of BBH, found this oddity as I was looking to purchase some obscure Russian industrial noise: https://yaop.bandcamp.com/album/mrakobesie

U-731 "By All means..." CD
Black Plagve
Members from United Front, S.H.P., Vomit Arsonist,... It sounds to me quite a like one could expect based on hearing those names. Also something what makes me think of several current USA projects. In a way, it is decent. It has pretty much all the basic elements of the dark post-industrial / heavy electronics stuff. Aggressive vocals. Strong samples from speaches or documentaries. Aggressive electronics as well as bleak and eerie, even tonal keyboard usage. It's not recycling same template, but actually each track does stand on its own.
But what sets it apart from the best of the genre, is the fine detail of sound. Many tracks suffer from somehow flat production. You got steady tone of raw electronics as back bone, then processed vocals echoing on top, and perhaps few other sound elements or samples going on, but nothing melts together and the true punch is missing. Seemingly like mixed on computer multitrack without sounds truly "becoming one", and often sound is relatively thin or flat, only enhanced with things like "reverb", rather than looking into core of sound, is it really any good? And instead of looking for brutal, fat, crunchy or truly fierce and ripping, you got this almost low bit rate multieffect type crackle tone hidden under echo? Well, of course not all the time and all the tracks - but the commonly heard and seen problem these days in this type of approach.

Of course, when you put some germanic leader speaking, you can throw almost any fuzzy tone behind it, and track can't be too bad, hah... So the CD is fine. But project appears like they could do way better than they have ended up doing. Lack of physicality and loud amplification is perhaps one missing detail, but I'm not sure if that's even the thing they want.

Ha! Everything that could of gone wrong regarding equipment failure to mixing the album using software was the reality of to why as much as I enjoy what we did as a whole ultimately failed on my end to deliver the intended sound....Since then I have re-worked and restructured new material using a different palette and methods to achieve something much heavier yet keeping as much as the United Front sound somewhat intact, I do hope we achieved with the second chapter of By All Means II (The Fall of Church and State) ;)

ROTAT - High On Excitement C40 (Narcolepsia)
Really fond of this one. Sounds like older Ochu colliding with Vårtgård av early Mania to these ears. A sound I'm especially in love with which I rarely encounter these days. Looks good too, this tape. Is the rest of the Rotat discography in the same vein? If so, I need to go shopping.

If wanting to think what could be something of this nature in Finland, I picked up from shelves long forgotten and utterly ignored Finnish noise release: Putkonen-Laurila -tape. Laurila may be more known guy of these two. This is done in 1998, when he had not made yet much name in Kemialliset Ystävät, Office Building, etc. Other guy had made releases with different names on Freak Animal, New Noise (Peter Zincken's label),.. As nobody appeared to even own copy of this (including artists), I was asked to take a listen. Vague recollections was that "something close to early Consumer Electronics". Well... perhaps not entirely true. Laurila abuses electric guitar, but lacking all echeos and neat effects. Closer to what for example Incapacitants very early releases had. Just fucking with raw guitar string sounds. On the top, Putkonen operates barbaric electronics, metal junk and sound manipulation. While rather crappy packaging and artwork - and project name, is nothing to rave about, this is curious release. 1998 is year when Finnish noise scene was vastly different. Most noise acts that are active now, were yet to come. Hardly any live shows or gatherings. Someone churning decent harsh barbaric noise was already interesting. Amusingly, this tape is "recycled tape": Dubbed over Richard Ramirez' CONTROLLED FILTER tape, haha.. As Putkonen-Laurila assault is shorter than c-60, there was still other side remaining of ramirez noise. Probably should do SI "radio program" about lost tapes of Finnish noise. There are surprisingly many of them. This certainly would be worthy of exposing few minutes of it to wider public.


i would love to hear this, and yes an SI on "forgotten Finnish noise" would be great. Jan (Kemialliset...) is an old friend, toured w him in 07 or 08 for a bit.... weirdly in the US that whole side of "experimental Finland" is always brought up; yet from what i know that scene and the "PE/HN" side of stuff don't cross much??? also Mikko i remember u listing some junk noise LP a few years back that i think was people from this crew, maybe Avarus related??? sounded great but can not find the link.

Trepaneringsritualen: Judas Goat
Sissy Spaceck: Grsip
Bloated Subumans: Commemoration
Grey Wolves:Division
Hair Police: The certainty Of Swarms

I felt more than a little slighted by a comment today that I should just stick to gorenoise, like I'm some sort of troglodyte, stuff isn't even that good to me, just on occasion, so I felt like I had to mix it up.

Serves you right if something as simple as a normal response to a bit of a precarious inquiry gets your panties in a bunch. No offense, but you bring up contentious topics on a forum and that's what happens. Happens to nearly anyone. I'd say you should know that, but apparently...

ANYway,

Mercury Hall "Library's Bells" 4xCS (Second Sleep)
          Excellent set of musique concrete tracks constructed from very simple but catchy field recording loops, I think I hear some tape echo on certain pieces. Piano sounds, room reverb, clanking, snippets of voice of passers-by. This probably won't disappoint any fans of Mercury Hall sound-wise, but I will bitch and moan that each tape is only a C10. At 40 mins. total, that's not insufficient, but I thought I was gonna end up with 60 or 80 minutes total.

No Heat "In The Shadow Of Paradise" CS (Prime Ruin)
         Really good stuff from Alex York and another bandmate who's project name escapes me. Very minimal, almost-abstract take on industrial that borders occasionally on drone. Very stylish and uncommon approach to vocals, wherein I can't tell if this was recorded live or "assembled." Wasn't crazy about 100% of the lyrics, but the better ones are truly good/weird. Lots of pulsing, thumping, and semi-distorted drones. Effective simplicity.

Alex York "Implicit Memory" CS (self-released)
          Short tape (C20-25?) of two side-length musique concrete tracks in 60s/70s style, filtered through that obscure/low-fidelity '80s/'90s sensibility (Hanged Man's Orgasm, If Bwana, etc). Catchy stuff that seems to mostly rely on edits and loops but never really achieves a sense of rhythm, which I dig. As far as the source sounds, I'm in the middle as to whether they originated elsewhere or were generated by Mr. York and cut to bits for these purposes. Warped piano and keyboard tones, unidentifiable background noises, snippets seemingly from TV and radio further messed with on tape, odd cuts of interjecting shouts. Really good stuff. I have yet to hear material from this guy I don't like.

I find it difficult seeing perspective in things (also I compulsively make bad decisions) but it does indeed serve me right, I am an adult after all and should be held to normal standards.

Zyklon SS - Live In Finland 2016 (cassette)
Excellent live recording, vocals are top-fucking-notch. the live version of Bring Back the Camps is so goddamn perfect. I wish my live recording had this level of punch.

otherwise mostly metal, especially Mortician for the past few weeks.
Mortician - Domain of Death LP
Mortician - Hacked Up For Barbecue 2xLP
- the best
Mortician - Final Bloodbath Session CD
Incantation - Profane Nexus LP
- solid stuff. obviously it's not the dank Incantation of yore but it's damn good death metal, the b-side tracks being especially strong.
Vasaeleth - All Uproarious Darkness mLP
Orchidectomy - A Prelate's Attrition CD
- the only slam death metal album you need.

Starcave - Demo 1 Quite a unique take on black metal. The icy, icy guitar with weird deathrock/goth basslines. Maybe the "catchiest" BM I have ever listened to. Perfect length for a "demo" (I feel like bands like to throw this word around for kvlt status truth be told), but I'm excited for whatever is in the works next for these folks.

Void Prayer - Stillbirth From The Psychotic Void Another excellent and interesting take on BM. Excellent BM from muslims, if not the best really (this is me assuming they aren't Serbs or Croatian). Feels sloppy but in an intentional way with really eerie passages in their tracks. Also the Intro and Outro are extremely well done and I enjoy listening to them unlike most attempts made by other BM acts.

Buried at Sea - Migration One of the heaviest, darkest doom albums ever written. From the opening punch (I would love to know how that sound actually made, i have never heard anything like it in my life), to the Sunn O))) heaviness of the opening riff on the second track followed up by the effected vocals that follow......just like drowning eternally, not in a minute, but much, much longer.

Apollo Brown - Grandeur Another knock out from one of the best producers of the Detroit Hip Hop sound. Beautiful, masterful sampled beats featuring excellent MC's. The two standouts are of course the tracks featuring Westsidegunn and Sean Price (but then again I like the "bad guy" rappers of course, fuck a migos forever). The Sean Price verse "Yesman Shit" is nothing short of inspirational and I appreciate his words more and more as time goes on. If you like J-Dilla, I can't suggest this enough.

I second this - easily as good as any of the studio tapes.

Caverne - Aux Frontieres Du Monde French black metal that is so so so so so GOOD. I'm usually not a fan of clean singing in black metal but this guy pulls it off. Tracks that never seem too long ever, in fact they could be longer really. I can't tell if there's any sort of "nationalism"/pride thing related with the album but at times it feels extremely passionate and heartfelt. If only the demos were as good as this album. Will be picking up the LP for my birthday next week.

Apollo Brown & Ghostface Killah - Twelve Ways To Die: The Brown Tape Apollo Brown coming hard again. This time mainly with the mighty Ghostface and the Wu-Tang crew. Focused on crime, talking about Tony Starks, cutting up bodies and disposing of them, doing time in prison (describing it, not just saying "I did time in prison"), all with a vibe of realness that I don't find too much in "extreme" music. I wish there was more 5% references but maybe its slipping by...more often then not I need to re listen and study the words closer when the Gods speak. All of this darkness of course accompanied by Apollo Brown's production that is a perfect accompaniment of sampled mastery...the sounds of the hustle in a big city, but not made by men in suits, just crooks and hooks.
