Holding the new -2019 self released- Treriksroset cassette in my hands i was wondering what is that make Treriksroset stand out. Is it my own bias ? What established my opinion ? A believer questioning the dogma of his faith. Thomas wanting to touch the wounds. I start listening with this spirit, trying to pay attention to details, to analyze the structure, to understand why ! Took me 10 minutes, i understood, i knew ! Cant explain it, i dont have the technical knowledge, neither my english help me. Actualy i dont have that talent, to put music in words, i cant, not even in my language. But i know why ! It's here and it's real ! Treriksroset's superiority, Treriksroset's truth !

Relieved, i surrended with confidence. The next hour i saw miracles happen, stigmata on my body, gates of noise heaven opened and i walked in.

Silence, klank, cassette ended. - Me, more convinced than ever, ready to kill and be killed for my faith. Crusade ! Do you believe ?

Netzach - Altitude of thurs drum based loops buried in high treble static. good first thing in the morning or a peaceful evening. This puts me in the mood of what I would imagine people get from Alberich, but I don't actually own any Alberich so don't take my advice. I am pretty interested in getting the split with Linekraft.
The Haters - Urban SensitivityI dont think ive listened to this in over 10 years. I think my opinion of it is about the same as back then- the first track is pretty bad, just sounds like shop class in an uninteresting way, the other tracks are pretty uninteresting as well EXCEPT track 3- 'made mostly from breaking glass. ' but no it does not sounds like it is! it sounds like actual music except from a paralell universe. its really crazy.
TEF - Framework Shows Dada drumming is back and means business. The cd gets more dramatic as it goes on , but mostly just the most choice cuts of scathing noise. even when it moves away from harsh every sound is appealing.
K2 - technodrugreissue. never knew k2 made this kind of modulated material, but im not too familiar with the project. need to give it another listen but I can say it is good.
SSRI -Focalore one of my favorite recent tape acquirements, at least of a new-ish tape, but also wish I had this when I was younger because I would have played it til it fell apart. some Gelsomina is some of my favorite noise ever so this is great to finally hear. good interview in troubled sleep as well.

listening to BDN after not listening in long time, being on an old school death industrial binge.. definitely one of the greatest, especially the early, really necro-sounding stuff before innerwar.. (although i like that second period as well).. haven't listened much to stuff after late 90s.. what is the best of the later work..?

Merzbow - Jinrinkinmouzui (Slowdown Records)

Recorded and mixed in 1985, released in 2019. Another old gem released just a couple of months ago. This is yet another unreleased collection(?) from the mid '80s with sounds all over the place which keeps it all interesting and lots of fun. Radio broadcast samples (with possibly some porn moaning samples thrown in), metal banging, plucked instruments, all sorts of noises. This is somehow slower moving than some of his other material from the same era. Like with other recent archival recordings this one also has links (at least one) to previously existing old releases. The first track is called Jinrinkinmouzui (Wild Animal & Polyhedral Garden - Another Mix) which refers to Batztoutai With Material Gadgets. This sounds like a longer and louder mix of Wild Animal & Polythedral Garden from that album. Again, if you like that style I cannot see how you could go wrong with this one.

Merzbow - Antimonument Tapes (Slowdown Records)

Recorded and mixed in 1985-86, released in 2019. No surprise that this one has ties to Antimonument. Half of the songs are mixes of tracks from that album (Tatara and several versions of 3 Types Of Industrial Pollution). Even if this one has been mastered to have more punch than the original (and it feels louder than the other Slowdown releases I have reviewed earlier) it still ends up being somehow pointless and not that interesting. Here the emphasis is on the klang, klang and bang. The original is more varied. But there is some excellent harsh noise hidden in some of these tracks. Hit and miss.

Merzbow - De-Soundtrack (Slowdown Records)

Recorded and mixed in 1986-87, released in 2019. Part crazy cut-up madness, part disabled orchestra with squeaky violin. Lots of rhythmic stuff (drums & percussion) and too much of that annoying violin torture. Like retarded orchestra trying out instruments they cannot play. Kiyoshi Mizutani provides guitar sounds.

Merzbow - Kaoscitron (Slowdown Records)

One of the newer non-archival treasures. Well, not really a treasure IMO. This on was recorded in 2016-17. Sure it does not totally suck but the man has hundreds of hours of better material. The album starts with bubbly synths that are soon drowned by distorted noises that I could appreciate if it did not have all the bubbling still in the background that soon turns annoying. 6 minutes of this and the album takes a 180 degree turn. The next half an hour is mellow slow drum machine beats with synths on top. Some slightly more distorted sounds appear every now and then but all in all this is pretty soft. The last 26min track takes the listener back to where the album started with harsher noise with some bleepy/bubbly synth wanking on top (in the background?). Not a winner but probably something interesting for those who enjoy some of the more recent Merzbow releases.

Controlled Bleeding "Distress Signals II" LP (Artoffact)- unrel material from the sessions that was released on tape by Broken Flag (I own the orig). Harsh electronics-noise with lots of screaming, feedback, junk metal, synth sounds. Recommended if you're a fan of "D.S." & "Knees and Bones".

S.T.A.B. Electronics "Enemy of Pigs" LP (Unrest)-  violent electronics from the UK based on heavy sex content. Side 2 ramps up the sexual rants & non-stop vocals; my fave tracks are "Of Misandry" and "Sic Semper Tyranis". Solid release all the way through. Too bad it's so limited so jump on a copy FAST.

If anyone has "Day of the Male" & "Instrument for Operating on Mutant Women", drop me a message.

Merzbow - Kaerutope (Slowdown Records)

Recorded in 2016-18 and released earlier this year. One thing that immediately strikes me is how this sounds like much older Merzbow. Weird noises and improvised stringed instruments. Too bad I am not the biggest fan of this improvised plucked guitar stuff. This never gets too harsh, it is more in line with the early '80s mess of sounds style. In a nutshell this release is part Merzbient, part '80s improvisation all rammed through Masami's current fancy electronics.

Merzbow - Indigo Dada (Slowdown Records)

Like Kaerutope this one was recorded and mixed in 2016-18 and released this year. Out of all the Slowdown Records releases I wrote short comments on in the last one month(?) this is the harshest. Especially the last track is harsh noise with a throbbing pulse in the background. Tracks 1 and 2 are kind of a summary of Kaerutope. First track is sort of oldish sounding in the way that it has very varied sounds (with some very annoying improvised piano playing) and the second track has some of the Merzbient-ish calmness with occasional bursts of harsher electronics.

Concrete Mascara - Worms of Corrosion -  Tape

Easily the best i've heard from him.It's tracks that are previously unreleased or ones from releases I have not heard. Not like the overly harsh or blown out sound CM has presented before where a lot of details & dynamics get crushed (and not in a bad way), but more building atmospheres from cold and distant to really dominant & pumping, excellent. Some of the vocals are just utterly insane, I love it.

I think this was only released in a small handful size edition for an event in the US but it should be made more widely available and with more similar tracks. I would like to hear more of this kind of thing from CM.

Concrete Mascara - Worms of Corrosion -  Tape

Thanks for the kind words. The praise for this tape is a bit unexpected as I just aimed to give a second life to some forgotten tracks which are outliers from my usual style. I only did an initial run of 25 because I figured interest would be low. I guess I'm a bad judge of what people want.


Maki Asakawa - Maki Asakawa CD - Honest Jon's - my mom got this for me as a gift a few years ago. she heard about it on NPR and thought I'd like it. a thoughtful and unexpected surprise, and a damn good compilation to boot. Asakawa is the kind of singer who immediately conjures images of dinging nightclubs, Yakuza bars and heroic bloodshed. ambience somewhere between the films Seijun Suzuki, Jean-Pierre Melville and John Woo. the blues-y tracks are my favorites, with the psychedelic folk ones coming in second. then there are the relatively brighter folk and pop(pier) tracks that do less for me but fit in the structure of the comp. and everything benefits from being unable to understand the lyrics. I've yet to to start picking up her albums from '70s just yet but will probably take the dive soon.

No recommendations except to say that this track, which I think is on that comp, nails a certain smoked out sultry sumptuousness for which I am consummate sucker-
