Altar of Flies - Female
https://altarofflies.bandcamp.com/album/female

After being blown away by the above, I checked this out, as it's the only Altar of Flies I could find on Spotify. I liked this even more- harsher and darker even than the Tapeworks collection. It ends with one of the most disturbing samples I've heard in industrial, I was walking home from the shops in total darkness when I listened to this and was staring straight ahead wondering what the fuck could possibly be happening and not really wanting to know...

His best that I’ve heard. The way each sound morphs from one moment to the next is very impressive. Plus it has an absolutely perfect, gross, decayed tape sound and vague, ominous atmosphere of dread. And the end... definitely makes the skin crawl. Powerhouse album.

It's a while since I listened to it but I always thought the end of Female was a child birth recording? I never got the creeps from this. I put it firmly in the Ron Lessard True Sound of Love® category (versus, e.g., Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock Asshole/Snail Dilemma).


I think that it likely is a recorded birth. The title of the track could also be read as a birth date. But there I am speculating. Regardless I’ve always found it to be an uneasy listen simply on a sonic level. Additionally, I used the term “vague” in my previous post and I think that a common effect of many samples/sound pieces is a sense of strangeness or vagueness that emerges for no other reason than the sounds  being detached from a visual signifier. The material itself may be fairly innocent or mundane. It is the re-contextualization and absence of certainty that lead to reactions such as this. Regardless great fucking album that gets a lot of play around here. Currently waiting on Auditory Hallucinations to arrive in the mail. Never given that specific tape a listen.

Kiran Arora - Wormwood Scrubs CD
First release I've heard from Kiran Arora. I'm guessing this will appear on a lot of 2020 lists. It's on mine for sure. Excellent album.


Excellent release, just finally got around to checking it out. Certainly AOTY material. Unique sounds, editing, and really well mastered by Jon Borges. I only have a couple of other releases from the artist, but both the Fever Swamp and Glare tapes are highly recommended.

Crazy Doberman

I really enjoyed the Haunted/Non Haunted LP - I have Hypnagogic Relapse on order and definitely keen to check out more of their stuff. I love a collaborative approach to this. Kind of reminds me (at times) of early 2000 era Wolf Eyes with the delayed sax happening. That’s a good thing!!

Trou Aux Rats - Le Cloaque Apres La Romance
Roro Perrot project which melds unsettling organ, muddy vocals, deathly reverberations, creepy noises... sudden shifts in volume, abrupt endings, 25 tracks filling 2 CDs.  May just creep into my top albums of the year, really great material.

Also liked and listened few times instantly. I like the environmental recordings thrown into mix here and there. Having noise blasting and then cut into the rain drops (on metal?) and back to noise. Good stuff. There are some KSNK in Finland who did things like this - of course sounding completely unlike Kiran Arora, though.

Desgranges "New Orgasm Formula"
First listen of their/his new full length. I enjoyed the debut tape a lot so was looking forward to this one. Thematically treads similar ground to some of the other names spoken around lately...necrophilia, misogyny etc. Sounds are far more crisp and distinctive though, not hidden behind a layer of murk as much. More sedated in approach as well, leaving room for the vocals to dominate up front.  Not bad and will get some further listens.

Orcus Inferi "Cold Meat"
old CMI/Slaughter inspired. Like a more active Archon Satani maybe.

I was just listening to a live clip of them on youtube a few days ago.  Excellent project with great vocals.  I will have to look into this tape.

GELSOMINA - Waste Oil Recycled Vol. 3 C40 (Abisko, 2005)
This is a good tape. Sounds like sound sources fed through pedals with the knobs set all ”wrong”. And the way it’s done as a whole is just plain weird somehow. Rough noise finding its way, taking strange detours getting there. Staying off the main road. I come to think of Worth at times, but slower, more absent minded and oafish in a positive sense. Or Government Alpha in super slow motion.

SEWER ELECTION - Killing For Norberg C40 (Spanking Ritual, 2007)
Starts with a split channel roar of untamed feedback and a low-end shitstorm. The full spectrum. This lasts for quite a while, and then slowly abates into a bottomless pit of boiling lard, with the occasional eruptions of the former, which lasts for the rest of the tape. Rich soothing layers of earthy crust, drilling feedback and distant electronic psych beams. For being a ”live rehearsal” it’s pretty damn great, and a slightly different Killing Session. Not saying it HAS to be reissued, but an edition of six is... scarce.

Never heard of this project, just went to check it out. Fucking awesome. If I was to ask for my dream PE project, it would be 'song-length' compositions with a balance between droning/chirping synth sounds and metal/feedback abuse with super up-front vocals, especially with that Dalek-level phaser treatment.

Artwork is also very cool, I love to see paintings as album art in PE/noise https://antipatikrecords.bandcamp.com/album/desgranges-new-orgasm-formula

Knurl - Acetylphasia CS : I had bought this used some years ago from someone who had removed the tape from the bag once he recieved it. If you dont know, this was coming with an acid moistened napkin that its fumes [?] are corrosive ! And judging by the look of the shell, very corrosive ! Screws of the shell were rusty, i shaked the cassette and rust was falling haha. I suppose this was done cause of the acid and not intentionaly used [?] . -My tape is a 2 sided C45~ BTW- . I decided i am too pussy and that i value my deck enough to not feed it with rust. So unglued the labels, kept them, and procceded to a transfer to another shell operation. But it was impossible to unscrew open. The screwdriver was totally destroying the rusty tips, till there wasnt any catch. Went to the basement and carefuly cracked the shell with a vise, and finally put the reels in a new shell. With a fear if that happened to screws in what condition is the tape inside i played the tape. To my surprise it sounded excellent -it still does- , it left some oxide residue on first pass -nothing tragic, but enough that i should clean- but that was one-off, from then it passes clean everytime. Since then i even keep it in a new case cause the original smells. - - Yes, that was a music review about Knurl.

I have listened two other Knurl lately too, and have them fresh in memory, the new tape on Nefarious Activities [if i recall correctly tracks are recorded in 2008] and Mesosoma CDR, and i think Acetylphasia is the one i prefer most of them. Cause it's different. It's not the harsher, it's not wild, it's mostly slow, with the saw blade cello creating an 'ambience' , would this qualify for guitar noise ? Sounds like many times. Favorite track the last one, a beatiful industrial piece.

Hey, can anyone confirm the long 20min track is the first one ? Just to be sure i didnt reverse the sides when transfering. Dont remember i paid notice on that.

PS: I see Thoracia is from the same year with saw blade cello too. Have to check this.

Holt crap, I’d be supremely grateful if you’d bless me with these files...I’ve had this tape sealed up and stored for years since I figured it was totally unplayable :/

Thoracia is one of the best later Knurls, I think. Alot of blade action! Bloor is always in total control of his setups, but there's something slightly reckless about Thoracia. Wild and loud tape. It also has a great track where he simply just plays around with the tip of an amplified cable. A good example of how he can bring alot out of almost nothing.

Today five years ago, Lemmy passed away.
So, playlist is clear and I will raise several glasses.
Cheers!
