Last Days of Humanity - "Horrifc Compositions of Decomposition" CD - Rotten Roll Rex -2021
Vocals sound like a fork stuck in a garbage disposal, killer samples, catchy anthemic riffs, crispy blasts. EFFORTLESS grind sickness spread across 33 tracks in a little under 30 minutes.

Joe Colley - "Trance Tapes" 2xC40 - No Rent - 2021
Ice cold electronic minimalism. It was barely audible on my tape deck, but through a pair of headphones the tones revealed themselves nicely. Somewhere between minimal techno (at points) and test tones. It feels like a continuation of some of the pieces from the Disasters of Self box. Rhythmic/arrythmic, music by and for machines. Beautiful layout too, very strong release!

Yooo check out these two, Last days was aight but maybe not as fucked up as I like? Cool but sounds more like straight up death metal than proper goregrind madness.

Was catching up Noisextra, listened both, Seed mouth and Anenzephalia episodes. Seed Mouth is great. I probably have mentioned that I even managed to see it live once. There was gig in Japan. I was not on tour or gig, but just visiting. Utterly difficult venue to find, and Seed Mouth and Yama-akago (Fumio Kosakai’s wife drone-noise project) amongst others was there. Seed Mouth had CD walkman and some rather primitive gear.

Anenzephalia "live karlsruhe" CDR
I have Live karlsruhe tape box, this 2nd edition CDR remaster, and the later LP edition with 2 bonus tracks. All good. Booklet with this CDR, very neat. I don’t known how many times I have seen him play live. I would suspect at least 3?
None of the gigs were as VIOLENT as this Karlsruhe gig. All has been great, though. I don’t know if I still have, but I used to have unreleased live recording on the live in Finland. It happened just before New European Disorder came, and in this gig I heard Final Pulse for the first time. I had to ask B. Moloch how was the beat done. He just said something like ”I have synthesized that can do it”. No idea how that thing was programmed, and with what exactly. I should maybe try to find the mini-disc master of anenzephalia set.

DEPTHER "Altar state" CDR
Nihil Market
This is disc that would demand re-issue. 2001 recordings of Depther (a.k.a. J.Vanhala) on Kaos Kontrol’s sub-label Nihil Market. Under same label came out equally limited Sshe Retina Stimulants CDr and CDR of obscure Finnish noise project Hinageshi Bondage. That one too is actually pretty good and interesting noise from guy who still after all these years is involved in noise!
Depther has been described sort of pre- Zoat-Aon, and from outside perspective, that is pretty much what it sound like. Back in the day, I.Corax was duo of couple of these Oulu guys, and among very first things that was publicly heard, was their track on ”Degenerating Finland” compilation CD back in late 90’s! Even if most of that CD, was like who-is-who of Finn PE at the time (Bizarre Uproar, Grunt, Order, Pain Nail, Strom.ec and so on..) way more darker and obscure I.Corax was included on CD as their track blew me away. This good ”ambient” in Finland!?
All the artists related to Helixes (helixes.org) are pretty much appreciated kult bands these days, but curious thing is, that starting from this very first Depther CDR, despite being 20 years old recordings, project displays such a superior skill of sound craftmanship, that it has not aged at all. If this would come out now, I would still conclude it is absolute top quality, in technical skills and taste. In genre like this, where a lot of CD’s has not aged so well, I think it is quite achievement! Only thing that somehow sets it to the more "90's" spirit, is perhaps the way spoken samples are being used!
Multiple plays this week…

Vigilantism - Fistborn
Strong stuff and really caught my attention right away. This one grabbed me much quicker than the previous releases on Freak Animal and that's saying something because those releases were superb.

Cefaris - discography
Canadian black ambient that rides the same winds as LLN Black Ambient acts, Darkness Enshroud etc etc. Pianos, percussion, synth and a voice rasping away behind it all. Works well however.

Umpio - Kulotus 2xCD (Narcolepsia/Hiisi Productions)

Brand new Umpio release with harsh noise material spanning 10 years. No insect electronics here! If I understood correct this is not a compilation even if some of the source material is old. It sounds like a solid whole due to the mastering (I guess) and oh boy does it sound great! In my mind I connect this sound to the loud crispiness of last year's Skin Graft/Wiese CD that was one of the best releases of 2020 for me. Umpio sounds crisp, crunchy and crushing. There are no dull or lackluster moments on these two discs, it is all quite varied yet coherent. It really feels like the sound could escape your mangled speakers at any moment.

Acknowledging that I'm long overdue to start posting retarded shit again, two fairly recent bits of retarded shit elsewhere posted (very slightly altered in the requisite altered state):

[INCAPACITANTS - GEERT KOHLER - PRIEST IN SHIT - JSH​+​ANONYMOUS MASTURBAUDIOUM - Split 2021]
INCAPACITANTS
No offense to the other contributors to this comp, all of whom deliver, but the whole point of this is the indicated.

One of those "let's see what incaps are possibly up to" moments and scored this puppy. More properly-non-coherent-babble to be applied upon receipt of the physical tape.

For now. Quite the baffler. Incaps. Sounding very much in the D.D.D.D. I Residuum The Tongue vein eg when the banker buds were channeling the not-undue influences of the lower-ended Yank crowd. Y'know, low-brow flatulence. Raspberried hefty-boys. Overworked sphincters clocking up the overtime. At least sez me. Um.

Start again. There's this critical point, see, where Incaps flirt with shambolic, but never quite achieve due to the sheer incandescent fury in force. This one sits somewhere in that no person's land. That shambolic-slash-incandescent-fury land. (A pretty cool spot, but a spot upon which judgement passes but fleetingly.)

Now, I know you probably think you've got Incaps' number. You do, right? I know you do. But lately, they've been seriously fucking with the program. Ostracized Enigmatic Conqueror. Survival Of The Laziest. These are fucking KILLER TIMES TEN. Killer times not on the program. And very recently in the pool. That is to say, indicative of an incaps straining against its own confines and delivering something that is both whole-ly incaps and whole-ly flatulating in exciting(ly) new shades of belchtastic. Love me some belchtastic.

Okay.

Now, this. This... thing, which reminds of a few earlier classics, as stated, but which also verges into peculiar WTF territories of more recent bent. Warp. Strain. Grimace. I mean. The textures. Did I mention the textures? They are the thing. The THING. The thing that converts the sometimes questioning worshiper, aka me. Converts the questioner back to believer. Textures what flatulate. Try to finish a sentence but interrupted by: flatulent-hodai. All-you-can-flatulate, raspberries till the sphincters come home.

Start again. I'd really like to know when this particular incarnation of Incaps was born. It is entirely possible that these chaps are, like, poised to RIP THE FUCKING SHIT off of noise. But, like, that's the kind of thing certain persons would say. Especially when said persons are me.

Dare to hope to dream.


Cracksteel, 道産子アナル, Macronympha, Skin Crime, AMB, Astro - v.a.
The only problem with this little gem from Workturm Ghetto is that Cracksteel scorches out the gate with such incandescent blistering fury that we're pretty much holding at why bother by the time the second track kicks in. And with the possible exception of that second track, much bother is offered. Macro a surprisingly psychedelic turn, harsh heavy bottom-dwelling puritannical onslaught not bothering with even the slightest gaps in which to insert the labored huff. Skin Crime sounding much of thereabouts ('96), burnt raw butcherings wrenched amongst the ill-kempt chalknailed flautelence. Autotoxic Mental Bizarrerie necessarily spelt out in full cuz that's how they are, how he always are, but here even more so and with a title like "Scratch Ahead I" to leave the duly triggered goggly'd bout placement of the chicken and the egg or well suffice it to say I'm yes kinda the sort who kinda digs the noise stuff nonetheless had me popping out the tape just to ensure shit wasn't getting mangled god blesh ye merry Mental Bizarreries! Astro on that charburnt acid safari he'd slowly gentrify in subsequent iterations but I still quite like this raw and say it rude warble with few intentions to let things simmer lush and long so be it. As for DO THANK ANAL, well, caught them live once or twice and yes they certainly live up to the name no further ado.

Oh wait, here it comes, the further ado (and how could it not?)

Control - Blood Will Rain - last studio album by Control on Ant-Zen from 2018. Massive sound - huge. I am researching the projects recent work as I got a batch of earlier material a few months ago. How the vocal shouts over the top of the noise and falls into it becoming part of it is impressive.

There seems to be an ambitious sound, that is very big, the vocal and synthesizers that cut into it at times I like.

Masonna- Destructive Microphone (5", Alley Sweeper)

I expected this to be good, of course, but I kind of bought it also for the sake of having a 5" (although I do have Merzbow's Green Wheels). So I was pleasantly surprised by how good it is, especially side A. There are plenty of great and even somewhat catchy vocal loops, plus some psychedelic effects Maso started using around this time (and which I always thought added a lot to his music). It's condensed Masonna in a way, around one and a half minutes on each side. Definitely not only a gimmick record.

Mo*Te - Throw A Stone (CD, Absurd Exposition)

Not surprisingly, this album does not disappoint. All the elements are there that make this project unique (and also different from his own ‘90s material): strange loops, rhythms, and pulses; occasional melodies, sometimes buried underneath feedback; and several layers going on at the same time, with clever changes occurring from time to time. One of the highlights for me is the stereo panning in track 2. The mastering was done by Umpio. As always with Mo*Te, this release is highly recommended if you like noise crafted in an unusual and creative way.

Roland Kayn - Zone Senza Silencio (Bandcamp only release)

The latest in the monthly Bandcamp-only releases of unreleased recordings by this German composer who up to a couple years ago was almost completely unknown, but has been gaining reputation since. This piece, made in 2004, is a morphing, continually changing flow of completely abstract electronic/electroacoustic music that's rich in textural detail and has a mysterious atmosphere. Kayn made utterly singular music, and while he repeated himself a lot (with around 300 works to his name, that's hardly surprising), even those pieces which don't stand out from the rest are worth listening to.

Some recent 7 inches:

STRESS ORPHAN - “Colony Collapse”
Great mix of sounds on this and overall a brutal release. Metal scraping, aggressive oscillations, drones - all the good shit. What I like about this project are the vocals. They sound tough, pissed. This is the type of PE/noise that has balls. I was able to see him play at the last Summer Scum and the same feeling carries over to the live performance.

VERNICHTUNG DURCH ARBEIT - “Totenfotze”
I don’t know much about this project. This was a blind buy simply because of it being released on F&V/Wrath - I figured there’s gotta be something there for me. And there is. Both sides present blistering wall of electronics with what sounds like very subtle vocals in the background? Hard to tell. Type of record to listen to at cranked volume and slip into the void.

SADIO - “Piss Drinking Slut”
Ah, yes, good ol Sadio. Does not disappoint. Love the liquid sounding effects as that dude unloads his piss right at the beginning of the title track. Then rips into maniacal vocals and layers of different textured sounds. Something to bum out the neighbors. B side has a different sound with looping instrumental piece underneath commanding words. Deep breathing mixed in for a nice sexually deprived touch.

More random dribblings from the elsewhere posted, with a few choice edits.

Self-stoking in preparation for the two OVMN reissues soon to be molesting the earholes...

OVMN / AUDIBLE XXY split
The best moment in this tape comes about twenty-three seconds in. Just when you think it's going to dissolve into pure and genuflective Incaps worship, a massive thrust of thunderous pelvic sludge-bludger bulges and bursts stage center. From there on out it's all overworked sphinters endlessly ruptured amongst lost overtones, tar-blackened belch rapture, optimum volume maximum thrust, credited to none less than Joe Roemer T. Mikawa Tim Oliveira Fumio Kosakai Rodger Stella Mlehst. Noise bankers meet stoners meet their filthy flatulent maker in fornicating free-for-all fuckfestivities, semi-frequent cuts cumming crude rude and unvarnished amid hordes of saturated unsaturated brutality. And brutality is probably the only viable descriptor. I clearly remember the day this tape first lodged in deck, and prematurely lodged itself the fuck out, sounding a bit overmuch like jerking about with massed piles of shizzlemeat. But in the here and today I'm better placed to appreciate just how much shizzlemeat we're talkin. Like, a lot. So there. Plus, did I mention brutal? Like, fuck. Redzoned oblivia till the overworked sphincters come home hammered n blood crusted. Final "mix and edit" credits distributed evenly among meisters J.Roemer and T.Mikawa, but no question as to whose cock is most 'vested in the corrupt third party power lights-out buttplug in standing on the border with two guns righteously cocked. Riiiiight?

Audible XXY on the flip and it's no contest. Andrew Lersten against the combined exertions of Joe Roemer T. Mikawa Tim Oliveira Fumio Kosakai Rodger Stella Mlehst. Like, the poor stoned banker buggers never stood a chance. In fairness, this particular XXY iteration is "cut up and mixed at Red Zone Studios", like practically everything else that came within range of Roemer's filthy fornications. Still, if it weren't for the semi-self-imposed obscurity I might question why this project weren't more frequently namechecked. This shit is plain fire. Man, fuck OVMN. Bring the XXY, version Audible. How does it sound? Just, hefty. Seriously man-handled hefty-boys, crushing as all fuck. (And all fuck, btw, is seriously of the crushing persuasion.) Against the all-out all-over-the-fucking-place bloodbath that is the banker stoner collective, this shit's incredibly focused and puritannical, occasionally opening into widened reverberant caves just to fuck with the program, then drilling down to the fucking bone, pure bone-grinding furies fed through rickety wrinkled dimemberments of first order limbs conducting current through perfect density of fresh tracing contaminant stream blood. Right.
[/dribblings]

^Since posting the above, I've had a chance to go through a smattering of XXYs of the audible description and it may be fair to conjecture that Red Zone Studios left a heftier mark than the liners might indicate. The material on this split represents the best I've heard from the project, at least as far as the harsh and heavy goes. Some of the less muscular stuff almost wants me sniffing for more testosterone.

V/A "WITH BRUTAL FORCE" LP
Maruta Records
With my own works, I usually listen so much of it when its being done, and  after it is done - the process where its being evaluated is it worth of being released (read: to be listened countless times) - that once it is finally out, it’s time to bury it on shelves and not return to it any time soon..  With Brutal Force comp LP from 2002, already 20 years old material on it and very much possible I have not touched this since it came out and listened it few times. Pain Nail track feels not far from what upcoming couple Pain Nail albums are going to be (endless process, but I hope this year some of it will be public!). Grunt track is not to be shamed, but nowhere near the best works. Recorded around the time when Grunt/Sickness split/collab CDR was done.
On this comp. Grey Wolves, Lasse Marhaug, Death Squad, Pain Nail and Survival Unit probably survived the best the test of time!  Special edition in wire mesh, regular edition is dirt cheap at discogs, so if one has sweet spot to early 00’s power electronics, line-up is decent!

BRIGHTER DEATH NOW "Great Death I + II" 2xCD box
BDN double CD box listened couple of times. Some of the best, some of the bleakest BDN stuff. I’m sure many have different favorites, but this has handful of absolute ”hit tracks” if one can use such description for material that is not… well.. ”hit music”, hah. Bought it 2nd hand many years ago, already then dusty but never wanted to clean it as the outer box dirt adds just good atmosphere!
There was that one BDN 10” where all covers was moderately damaged by purpose. Ring wear and such. Appearance of 2nd hand item for entire pressing, I think?! In days when everybody is horrified of decreasing resale value, it could be good to publish items in dysty, dirty covers… Anyone into checking out probably best Karmanik interview, I strongly recommend to check out BARDO METHODOLOGY #7!

TAINT / SMELL & QUIM / CON-DOM  3xCD box
Red Stream
Nearly 3 hours well spent here. Its not long since I listened the actual CD box, but this was from youtube due being out of town. After returning home, spend quite a long time to find this damn box, since I had misplaced it during previous listening session...

Taint - there is a plan to re-issue CD as single album at some point. Some may have seen I mention that Keith gave me the right to ”handle his legacy in ways I feel he would feel is right way”. This is tricky thing, as Keith was at the same time against reissues, but few weeks later there could be suggestion that ”do you want to do Indecent liberties…”.  Like as if that would be question with more than one way to answer! My gut feeling is, that stuff tha was originally ”mass produced” is something he meant for larger ”masses” (in context of noise). So it would be respectful to do. Been in contact with most people involved with taint albums and everybody giving thumbs up. Have to write Pat of Red Stream. We used to be in touch a lot, but label has been in slow downshifing process for years. Well, anyways, listening Taint material here, it would be shame if now active new generations would have to settle for youtube stream, instead the way it was meant to be: Compact Disc!
Smell & Quim. I am quite confident to say, that instead of reissuing this, S&Q are now on level of producing vastly better material! Anyone doubting it, I recommend to check out some of the new stuff they have done! This CD, it is partially EXCELLENT, partially almost unbearably disturbing. Latter quality is of course not saying it is garbage. Just saying it is the somewhat different approach to noise. Not ear-candy and harsh blast that gets your juices flowing, but more like questioning what the fuck is this thing I am listening - and soon shifting into response.
Con-Dom is reason why this set could not be reissued as-is. Now retired, and doesn’t want to approve further reissues. I must respect this approach, and I can see the *artistic* merit of it. Release were done for other purpose than ”consumption” or ”mass production”. They had time, place, reason. Each release had point, connected to live shows, connections of sounds by other artists, most likely personal meaning. To have labels churning out CD’s could be like stickers reproduced of paintings. It just aint the same thing. Specific era passed, and those owning the original piece of art have it as part of their own life. Not to be ”cheapened” as bulk reissue.
While I understand that logic, I often do consider repress absolutely positive. Of course depending on mood. Currently preparing couple reissues of my own, which I postponed for decade(s), but I tend to think my own opinion of what c/should have been done with particular recording is not -that- essential. Instead of keeping them hidden in master archive, I may just regurgitate them out there again, hah.. despite there would be most likely more necessary releases, like PERVERSION AT ALL COST, to be availble. One could say, that title of the box, is THE power electronics in the nutshell. If one doesn’t like it, there is option to GTFO.

Vetrophonia "Dadacacophonia Dao"
Zhelezobeton / C67 tape
https://zhelezobeton.bandcamp.com/album/dadacacophonia-dao

xlent sinister and varied, industrial nightmare music from st.petersburg, russia, with tons of dark sounds combined. clear production, not so harsh or muddy, but constantly evolving... apparently took a long time to cook. recommended for ugly noise seekers



VA -- Gudelnaya Polyana – Solar Systo Togathering 2020
Zhelezobeton / 3xCD
https://zhelezobeton.bandcamp.com/album/gudelnaya-polyana-solar-systo-togathering-2020

a monster collection of tons of artists performing at this massive trance festival, all crossfaded into each other to create a huge cosmic trip. mostly beautiful resonating intergalactic frequencies and pulses, but a few darker drones, and even tribal drummings also present... just letting it drone on repeat non stop to forget nightmare of reality. i cant imagine the amount of hours that went into this. recommended for those "voice of eye" moments

First time poster, long time lurker here.

Atrax Morgue - In Search Of Death (big surprise) I feel that this is definitely one of the more diverse entries in the AM canon. There's something almost voyeuristic about listening to it. It's like when that quiet guy you've been friends with for years, who never told you he made any kind of music or noise, finally hands you the tape he's been secretly hammering away at in his bedroom forever. While there are moments that are still somewhat uniform with the simple, sleazy, and hypnotic assaults that would define most of his catalogue, there is also a ton of space, patience, and atmosphere.  Definitely a favorite of mine for the wide spectrum of general creepiness it covers.

White Slug - Cage Paralysis I'm a huge fan of trashy, sleazy shot on video horror movies. Most of the good ones are "good" in the same way a certain kind of punk band is—where only one member can actually play their instrument worth a shit, but the raw, unified vision of the project is strong enough to keep the music captivating. I think I was watching Gorgasm or Gorotica (can't remember) and I heard this incredibly unhinged industrial shit weaving in and out of the soundtrack. Sometimes it would resemble some absolutely crushing death industrial/power electronics and other times it felt like very damaged industrial metal. Through sitting through the credits and then doing a little research, I found out that it was one project doing both—White Slug. I don't hear much chatter about this project, but they traverse the spectrum of industrial music in a pretty raw, batshit way, and I definitely recommend checking out Cage Paralysis.

UMPIO - Kulotus 2CD (Hiisi & Narcolepsia, 2021)
Umpio has always dabbled with modular and no input sounds, or at least on all releases I have, but I wasn’t quite prepared for this. This is purely oscillator, modular and no input, assembled from tape recordings done over a ten year period. He covers the spectrum from volcanic eruption to restrained rippling, always with maximum pressure and energy. There’s not a dull second here, but if I’d have to pick a favorite it’s the fifteen minute bulge fest ”Glass Crunch Snack” from disc one where he lets the sounds skid, slide, screech and stammer in a lovely way while low end explosions keep things moving (fast!). Best yet so far this year for me. Fans of Keränen’s superb Bats in the Attic take note in particular, and T.A.D.M. fans even more so (in a blind test I’d definitely take ”Phantom Pulse” on disc one for a T.A.D.M track), but any fan of inventive harsh noise needs this.

I love Umpio—the sound of total noise obsession. His segments in the doc on Finnish noise are definitely some of my favorites.
