V/A - Leather (IOPS)
         Awesome presentation. On my third listen in a row. Enough             said.

Streicher / Totenrune (Unrest)
          Truly great tracks from both projects. Timeless sounds.

Blood Incantation - Interdimensional Extinction & Starspawn- the band never really clicked for me before, figured they were just a hype t-shirt band since their merch was going for crazy amounts of money a couple of years. thought I would give them a shot live before I laid them to rest for ever caring about them, seen them last week on the Morbid Angel/Cannibal Corpse tour and they blew me away, best band that played night. definitely a band that has more power/energy live than they do on record, pretty insane set

Blood Ov Thee Christ ‎– Masterbio Syphilitica - Dokuments 2005-2011

The description "recorded in various mouldy basements in Sundsvall under horrible conditions" is apt and this atmosphere shines through on while playing the tape. Rough sounding, a lot of audible junk metal, feedback, sudden cuts, highlights of practice and outtakes of recording sessions. Thoroughly enjoyable and the volume of tracks gaurantees maintained interest over the course of this 90 minute tape. Very nice 24 page booklet with artwork and tracklisting, liner notes, etc.

One of the best releases I've heard recently! Nice to hear "Tolv Steg Åt Helvete" again, used to have it in my YT channel. Hatemaster is a madman and I've had the honor to share beers with him.

Saw these guys a few months back with Demilich, was blown away. They definitely get a lot of hype but I think it's well deserved.

Young Hustlers - Encaged
Bought this when it first came out (i think) due to Mikko's praise. Very happy i picked it up. sounds like MS20 worship and GO worship but also has a youthfulness and 0 fuck attitude that makes it entirely its own, and depending on your mood BETTER... Bass heavy synth and straight forward phase shifted reverbed out vocals... which are PERFECTLY mixed... not too loud not too quiet. All tones are perfect theres seriously not a dull moment. Seems unavailable maybe someone will repress. but probably no time soon. I love how this project seems to not give a fuck. Looking forward to seeing them in chicago in a couple weeks.

<<INTERAKTION>> compilation
This is a compilation cassette c60, from 1991, on the French NEUIT ET BROUILLARD label featuring:
INTERNAL, FUSION, GEINS' NAIT, FATAL IMPAKT, DESACCORD MAJEUR, N.L.C, CORROSIVE TAPES and METAMKINE
Experimental industrial tracks that fit a consistent theme. picked this up cheap and was really into it. Lots of low fi beat sounding projects that have repetitive samples and loops, chants, negative space and creativity. All the songs are scary and raw. Ever hear the split with macronypha and Grey.com?? has the very same feel of the GREY.com side.. Lots of synth and sad/scary melodies in here and echoed out rhythms. I'd recommend this one on a rainy day.

Hal Hutchinson - Industrial Development
 A simple album but its so full and thick and the loops have such a great flow. Im never bored. Every piece working together creating a complete album. Have played this over and over again and it didn't disappoint tonight. Rich, lush full loops that changed every minute or so. 15 loops in total. very repetitive and straight forward but very respectable.

seeing them live really changed my opinion about them. they have a live 12" for sale on the tour and I picked one up. haven't listen to it yet, hoping it truly captures the energy and power the have when they are playing live

Yeah, I suppose their studio recordings might come across a lot more polished and with higher production value than how they are live but at the same time I can kind of appreciate that production quality given their style and the content of their releases. Am curious how that live 12” is, have only heard the studio albums at this point aside from seeing them live once.

V/A "INDUSTRIAL AKTIONS OAKLAND" CD
Syzmic Records
Long compilation CD including 15 artists. CONTROL and CONCRETE MASCARA stood out for me. Lots of decent tracks from the rest, but also some quite "clumsy" tracks, where glitchy sound or slightly uninspired tracks barely present artists at their best. This is the absolute challenge with compilations these days. It seems like one should not "waste" best track to compilation very few will listen, yet collecting CD of "less than best track"... Well, that's why compilations probably are not as interesting. However, I can say that this is decent stuff. Lots of names you can trust deliver decent material even if it wouldn't be their absolute "hit song", hah... BDN, IFOTS, T.O.M.B., Xiphoid Dementia, Swollen Organs, Gnawed, and so on...

BRUME "Drafts of Collision" CD
BRUME "The Sun" CD
BRUME Featuring VRISHIKA "s/t" CD

Old Europa Cafe
Brume is something I have mentioned several times on forum, and it is project I like, but can't name my favorites. Not even "top 5" or so. These three releases, mostly a bit older, doesn't change it. I like the experimental, ethno-percussive, industrial-soundscapes, yet it's hard to really tell which is absolute best. Perhaps Drafts and Collisions is most abstract, and appeals the most. Yet the musical and percussive qualities are what can often make me listen Brume.

S.P.K. "Live at the Crypt / London - April 25 1981" CD
Old Europa Cafe
At first I was like... so digging from bottom of the barrel now? I mean, percussion is thin and distant and quite separate from electronics. Audience chats occasionally fairly loud.... But, soon either I get used to it, or it just gets better. Hard to say. But RAW and PRIMITIVE industrial from the early stages. If one likes stuff like this, it certainly is good to listen to. Not as amazing as the VOD box set, but certainly live set I'm pleased to have on my shelves as CD!

Red Wine and Sugar “A Population of Indoor Cats” (Index Clean, 2019)
        Must be something in the water down there. Matthew Hopkins, Matthew Revert and these gentlemen sure do manage some strange contrasts in their music. Simultaneously mundane and surreal, minimal and extremely detailed, haunting and oddly comforting. This is perhaps RW&S' best effort yet. A more “musical” approach where vocals/lyrics take a backseat to the collage of sound, there's a lot of emotion in the tonality/melody here (which plays more a role here than on the first LP). The more “concrete” details are of course equally moving and intricate, in particular, the electroacoustic feedback work which plays a role in almost every track. Treatments of the sounds via tape are so delicate and natural as to seem accidental rather than deliberate. Vocals are mixed noticeably quiet compared to previous releases with less emphasis on effects than on tape muffle, with lyrics as intimate and stream-of-consciousness as ever: anxieties, anecdotes, dark humor, therapy-speak. I suspect some of the delivery is from Fieck as well as Groves this time around, but it's hard to tell. Essential realist experimental non-music for regular people.

Amph “Hudson” CS (Joy De Vivre, 2013)
        Well-worth the six-year wait it took to find a copy! Beautiful and desolate Amph as always; weird yet serene atmosphere. More surreal side A, more “industrial krautrock” side B. This might be their most tape-loop oriented stuff other than the sample I've heard from the recent “Control” LP. One of those projects that sounds just as good coming out of an old boombox as from high-end headphones. Only real complaint about this one is that sides seem to end before the tracks actually do. Essential listening (as is the entire output) from a project in no hurry to prove that they never wane in quality, even slightly. Somehow I get the picture some of the “loop fans” who I sometimes hear from who would like this project haven't heard it – to them I say, go get some Amph! (Heh.)

Mercury Hall “The Floor Above” CS (Clandestine Compositions, 2017)
        Despite this being one of my favorite current projects in tape music, for some reason I didn't like this the first time I listened. I don't know what was up with me that week. It's probably that some elements stand a little further out from the rest of MH's more-or-less recognizable sound – the glacial synth drone, the whispery voice work, the linear repeat clunking. Eventually, as with all MH releases, more elements revealed themselves and the way they work together and bleed into one another with further listens. What was at first off-putting became immersive and enjoyable, a feeling I find surprisingly rare in experimental music. The mark of a well-formed if challenging vision, which is basically the point. Weird, unclassifiable stuff.

Thought Broadcast - Social Acid + Voided

Cryptic rhythmic industrial music in the classic format and produced in the classic method. Dubbed out drum beats, vocals that can be mistaken for synths, and an odour of isolation accompany the tracks on both of these tapes. These recordings are the closest thing that one can get to re-creating the sounds of real deep japanese electronic music circa late 70s- early 80s. Vanity Recordings, Yasuo Sugibayashi, Tomo Akikawabaya. I'm missing a few of the releases from this project, but am on the hunt.

Living Currency - Accessory

Thought Broadcast side project, swapping out synths for a guitar but still maintaining the same atmosphere as the artists main project. Post-mortem music with dub influences. Tape echo units really help to make this cassette sound ghostly, cover art aside. The other tape on Seed Stock sub-label Personnel was great as well - Looking forward to more material from this project.

Mania - Untitled 7" - Total Black - first off this sounds really good for a lathe cut. kudos to those involved in making this happy reality. I'm immediately reminded of the revelation that was the Grotesque Mirth which kicked Mania into the next gear. I'm not left quite as floored by this one on first listen as I was on Grotesque Mirth, but impressed nonetheless. I'd say it's an even further refinement of the creeping menace that Mania can do so well. lower energy, but more atmosphere and a lot of room for the individual sounds. almost Skin Crime territory. and the vocals on the a-side are nicely modulated as they go along which I really like. If you dig Mania, I hope you picked this one up before it sold out.

Solmania - Evil Bed CD - Alchemy - just came in the mail today. as far as "major" Solmania release go I'm now only missing the first full-length on Alchemy and the latest. Even without a complete collection, I think I can say Solmania is my favorite Japanese noise artist/unit at this point, which surprises even me. I certainly listen to more Solmania than Japanese noise artist (excluding Linekraft). but I read a description of this album claiming it was the one where they really let it rip and deliver the harshness. I can confirm. it's definitely the "heaviest" i've heard by them but still avoids that full on wall of noise assault. so many crooked loops and squiggly sounds come in and out. layers of crispy distortion. seasick internal rhythms. but definitely fuller sounding here, more all encompassing. I think the first track is best with its nice build in and really nice outro, but there's not a weak one in the bunch. loving it.

Sutcliffe Jugend - Live Assault 01 (RRRecords)

Got this a little while back from Ron and recently it has been in rotation constantly in my car stereo. I assume this took place sometime around the “Victim as Beauty”/“When Pornography is No Longer Enough” era (though I don’t care to actually check the dates on those releases). Absolutely love the ambient intro music as they come on stage, though there is some type of low end crackle that shows up periodically through the quieter/less noisy sections which is a little irritating. Otherwise, for a live recording I’m absolutely floored by this release. First track is straight high end feedback worship reminiscent of the early stuff on Campaign and We Spit on Their Graves with manic vocals from one of the earlier mentioned releases. Great part midway through the first track where there is a bass pulse followed rhythmically with lines like “I wish, I wish your mother could be here to see this!” Absolutely fantastic. Second track a little more low end, rhythmic, with intense and clear vocals delivering a nihilistic diatribe on religion (at least as I heard it). Third track more rhythmic sections, high end feedback worship, brutal vocal delivery, more of the same. Love hearing the crowd’s response after sections with no vocals, can only imagine what was happening on stage beforehand. Overall, an outstanding live album.
