Con-Dom ended with style.

I guess I missed the ending of Con-Dom.. Anyone knows if Mike is working on a new project now? Glad I saw him live a couple of times over the years. His 7" series remains a favorite of mine.

leichenlinie seems to be getting a 30th anniversary pressing. funny to this old man but the 20th seemed to be so recent. fine by me as i missed out on that opportunity. no mention of the metal plate, just the new style spot varnish/embossing we have seen on last few reissues. excited none the less!

edit: spelling

It is clearly intended to be disturbing and for me, personally, he nailed it.
I have tons are violent and disturbing shit in my collection, but this one really messes with me. I believe that every Noise/P.E./Extreme Metal album should be like this, whatever the topic is, honest and crude, both in sound and visuals and I take my hat off to him for it. Even if I looked at that Digi, with full attention, once since I got the CD.

CON-DOM "How welcome is death to I, who have nothing more to do but die" CD

This one never clicked on me. And the damn artwork repels me everytime I think on picking it out again.

The second description explains why I love this album so much! Can totally see what not everyone would dig it, as I can only listen on very rare occasions. However this is because the atmosphere is so effective that it knocks me sick. I can only describe the music itself as sounding "nauseous", the samples are genuinely uncomfortable and saddening, and the artwork truly repulsive. Because this is subject matter not one of us will escape in our real lives. In my eyes it succeeds as a power electronics album in a way that nothing else does.

Well put! It's not an album about death IMO. It's about the stages before death when we're too weak to fend for ourselves. The final decay.

I've visited many shit holes in my job. Bariatrics, elderly, disabled, mentally ill etc. Depressing doesn't even begin to describe it. I've also had the misfortune of performing "life saving" measures on the dying or already dead. Puke, piss and shit everywhere. Next of kin or carers distraught. And the stench! And the calamity! It's fucking miserable and undignified. The realisation that this is how the end will be for most of us is unsettling. A 12 gauge in the mouth is preferable. But when? How? We're prisoners of our own mortality and for most of us it'll end this ugly, alone and impersonal.

I've said it many times but CON-DOM had the genius of capturing this in an otherwise no frills album that doesn't stray from the formula of our genre and he blew everything else out of the water in one fell swoop before bidding us all farewell.

The strength!

Fuck yes. What is most spectacular about the release is that is channels the essence of p.e., being this filth or uncomfortable reality of life others would rather not talk about. But the difference here is that most people here if not all have actual experience from this aspect, knowing the stench from the nursing homes, seeing someone you loved developing into someone else, become weak in mind and body.
So many p.e. artists are white males talking about rape, gender issues, racism, murder etc without having any actual experience with the horrors that go along with the topics, other than knowing about such horrors from second hand perspective.  The genuine nature of this Con-dom release is perfected as he is writing this album in real time while watching his mother get worse to the point of euthanasia in order to escape the indignity of it all, going as far as making her an actual peace of the art.  Talk about an artist.
