Prurient & Kevin Drumm – All Are Guests In The House Of The Lord CD - Hospital Prod., 2007 - it's been a little bit since I've given this album a listen but it's just as good as I remember it. One of my favorite Prurient releases ever actually. It feels like the collaboration with K.D. takes the elements I like from Prurient's moodier work and really elevates them in terms of complexity and composition. Nothing "goes on too long", frequency range gets overly abused and nothing feels haphazard. The first two tracks really fucking deliver. Starting with those quiet, slightly effected spoken vocals, disembodied voice samples flutter in, crystilne drones sit in the background. Proper bad vibes stuff, reminding me of the Ghosts of Niagara material. Then, after a swelling of horror strings, On This Slab kicks into gear and you're treated to classic Prurient screams over warped orchestral samples, distorted bassy synth surges, stuttering white noise scraping. It feels like the last 3 years of Prurient recording thrown into a food processer and this is the distilled essence. The intensity tops out there, but the bad vibes get worse and worse for the rest of the album which more than makes up for it. This is in the top 5 Prurient albums for me, and this listen was a pleasant reminder why.

KSNK / Moozzhead / Mogao / Tyhjä Pää – Kolari IV CD - EI ARMUA, 2021 - this whole compilation series has been such a delight and a perfect, second and longer look at artists featured on the Terässinfonia series. This whole volume is just blistering harsh noise, with highlights being the wonderfully unhinged "Tuelessa" by KSNK and the fucking stormer that is "Löysässä Hirressä" by Tyhjä Pää. That fucking track, goddamn! Ripping, screeching, grinding, lopsided, hollowed out, churning, metal bending abuse. More please! I need to track down more Tyhjä Pää asap.

Elsewhere posted, some of them a bit back but I think not as yet here so

Tetsuo Furudate - Macbeth
About as baffling, bombastic and boldly overwrought as one might hope and expect. Now, I mean. Back then, at the time of first encounter, I’d have had little idear of what to expect. The only Furudate to which I’d previously exposed the earholes was a track on the Ne San compilation (Banned), which I distinctly remember as being the only comp submission that genuinely blew the proverbial goat.

So why in hells would I have bothered to pick this up? Take a look at the cast of characters on the cover, mofo. Reiko Azuma. Merzbow. Tatsuya Yoshida. Plus no-less-intriguing host of luminaries. It would seem clear, from the title, from the presentation, that, whatever that goat might demand, we’re in for something…well, something.

Scene 1 stretches over 36-minutes, breaking into six distinct parts.

I, Third Witch, and a gloriously lifted sample from Macbeth, the 1947 film by Orson Welles.

II, Lady Macbeth, with Reiko Azuma on soprano vocal and Furudate on “sounds sampled from Penderecki’s St Luke Passion”. Hold on, “sampled”? This is just straight Penderecki, lifted in whole, no edits, no alterations. Not even sure where the Azuma comes in. But this anyway sets the tone for… Furudate’s entire recording career. Not, presumably, as a master lifter of other people’s work, but as one so gloriously up for The Epic. This thing is, yes, large, almost unwieldy, with enough cooks to do some gloriously disgusting things to the outcome. Among the myriad highs and lows, an abundance of glorious WTF.

Favorite has got to be the Merz, whose “Raw Material for Furudate” is exactly that. Can’t blame Furudate for not trying to do anything with it. It’s brief, but perfect, plonked smack dab in the middle, raw as fuck, and fucking quite perfectly with the program…assuming it’s possible to fuck with a program so clearly expressed in the letters W, T and F. Macbeth, okay, but more I’d surmise as a point of departure into something completely other. Quote, “Existence of clear death, assertive, almost politic, growing without limits. Deprival of the meaning. Expression of the lack of understanding. Death of the trees.”

For the most part this 70-minute epic represents in the not unambitious corner of symphonic ambient industrial, with extended percussive Yoshida wig-out in the earlier going, going out with a bang courtesy Koji Kida, laying down slow, majestic, ritual-percussive bombast, of the sort which would come to feature prominently over a good share of the Furudate discog. Definitely not blowing any goat today. Oh well.


Kazumoto Endo - While You Were Out
This is one whose every contour has been grafted onto the neural fibers, speaking not to the arsewhoopidness but to the aggregate: all contour, definition, contrast, writ pornographic. Nor to speak to requisite virtues in my preferred shit but as far as this shit the shit is unambiguously the shiiiiit. Largely compiled from that period when Endo was the standout on every compilation graced, ie immediately after Killer Bug went on extended hiatus. All Bugger no fugger.


Romance - quality assortment
Finally copped the 2007 Putrefier-Romance collab from a local seller, now self-stoking with some prime nostalgia [Ed. still, three months later sitting in to-listen pile...] Here’s a project that shot up like a rocket, exploding over a scene already burgeoning with cut-up rrrrrippers jockeying for endocore supremacy. What sets the work apart is perhaps ironically where it cleaves most cleanly to the core- very sharp, kinetic blasts of metal-on-metal smash-bash-mc’crash, perfectly poised precision-guided furies angling against painstakingly plotted silent intervals so emphatically rrrripped into scorched earth oblivion. Even when not drilling into the harshzone, the quieter interludes are liberally dosed with muted TNB-grade acoustic clatter, as might befit a project that I believe would have hailed from Newcastle? Looks like the full-length (pictured, top-left) sadly fell through, though from what I gather all the tracks eventually found a home, some possibly re-titled, via a 4-cassette split on Harbinger (who would seem to have served a critical role as primary curator of the later work).

As far as the project disappearing, I recall from an interview that was something of an artistic choice, reflecting an aim less to be a project than simply to be, y’know, in there bangin’ away. Didn’t even know I’d more recently heard work involving the principal, via Halalchemists- a sorta all-star TNB tribute band…and a very good one!


ERG / MSBR / Das Synthetische Mischgewebe ‎– Geosynclines
In the mood for some MSBR, I decided to pull this out, though it would have to belong more correctly to the multi-appendaged body of DSM. Well, they (DSM) got the final mix, and a not coincidentally greater share of their signature dis-placed dis-position to duly saturate the precipitate. Frenetic, playful, jump-cut ‘n cutting, from mood to mood, though not in ways that seem particularly in-clined to drive you batty. Not for the most part. Not deliberately. Plenty of time allotted for concentrated exploration of each successive dis-vergence, perhaps at times to suggest a sort of Das Synthetische Mischgewebe presents ERG & MSBR.

I’d have to concede, I’ve got little in the way of ERG to compare any of this to, but at least from the collaborative works of two principals (MNortham & Jgrzinich), some of the more smoothly contoured in-clinations could find their due re-presentation. Thematically, at least, the geosynclinations of ERG would seem most at home in the precarious and fragile hearing of wind searching for form via enlightened splicing devices dis-locating the stultified body, covered with dust under a blazing sky, as it were.

To the question, whither MSBR? Probably lost and snoozing somewhere along one cline or another, and I suspect that’s just the way crunchcrunchcrunchrunch he likes it.


T. Mikawa / John Wiese ‎– Oblique No Strategy
Wiese channeling latent Incaps fanboy snuffalufagus into some proper Mikawa-Grade Scorch (tm). Mikawa in the foreground but I'd put all the strings and all the harsh in the hands of the chap in back. Fact is, there was nothing like this coming out of the Incaps camp, for days. For days none of them severely pitched puritannical blister-shriek squealies, none of them dis-hinged dental implements converging upon orgies of incisive cartilage-shredding sado-bliss.

Incaps never went away, nor did the HARSH, but at least as far as the studio was concerned- and for me all the real Mikawa n pal magic happens in the studio- certain of the less hinged brutalities were traded off for more plainly tech-specific derivations whose acoustic characteristics, while quite plainly interesting, were quite plainly, well, I wouldn't say plain, nor tamed, at least in polite company, but, perhaps, painted into a corner from which escape might only be hatched through a dis-progressive inverted yield curve distilling the full bodied primitivo force of earhole abrading quietus, drilling drilling drilling home to momma harsh. No risk no return amiright?

But this, this. This is, like, exactly what I'd have done in the same position. Exactly. Or tried to. Aimed to. Hoped to. This. This fuggin Wiese dude fuggin nailed it. The purest puritannical fanboy tribu-pooption par stenchalance.

Sniiiiiiiiiiiiiifffffffffffffffff. Whoo yes. Sniiiiiiiiiiiiiifffffffffffffffff-Sniiiiiiiiiiiiiifffffffffffffffff-inny-Sniiiiiiiiiiiiiifffffffffffffffff-Sniiiiiiiiiiiiiifffffffffffffffff. Yessir. Nothing oblique about it, reamed straight up the noise SHITTER.

Love me some ozones frying in the morning.

Unité D'Habitation - Harmonices Mundi

I first heard about this project when their tape on Hospital was released but I always put them off for no real reason until today. A very strong debut from this French Industrial/Power Electronics outfit, rooted in the traditional heavy synths and demanding vocals of European acts before them but differing in their heavy use of dynamics as well as found sounds and/or field recordings. Shout out to the use of electric guitar on some tracks too, unexpected but...quite welcome? The excellent mixing work blends all of these elements seamlessly to create a varied, yet somehow always forceful listen. The album is available for free download on their Bandcamp, I recommend a listen.

Ironically enough, I haven't been able to get into their album on Hospital, just isn't doing much for me. Go figure.

Die Reitenden Leichen - Scumshot (Monolithische Aktion) cassette
Monolithische Aktion is back! The latest batch is only small part HNW but mostly good harsh noise of various styles. I like this new DRL tape the best of the bunch. Gone are the more static days as this is just active harsh noise. No drone passages or quiet parts, only ripping harsh noise. Sounds somehow very clear and crispy (digital?) but at the same time very powerful. Great!



I am far from unbiased here, as I have also released some DRL and my appreciation started way back, but this tape absolutely blew me away. Intense, heavily crunchy and paced just right. Absolute win from start to finish and by far the best HN I have heard in a long long time.

Worth "Blood Possessed" CDR
Prose nagge
Lots of things one could comment on, one being talk about CDR. When Oskar asks about ”disc rot” or CDrs becoming unplayed, Will presents less frequently heard opinion that they should!
I guess its mentioned to be more to underline the ”temporary moment” -approach. It is sort of old avantgarde art type of view. As opposed to dusty old museums and institutions trying to preserve and immortalize, there would be something happening that is instant, quick and ongoing and full of spontanious life.
I understand well that logic. It seems sometimes juvenile to think, that every noise CD need to be ”forever”. it could be just temporary documentation of sound process. Almost like playing or seeing a gig. Experience it, and move on, without worrying if it will ”last forever”.
That said, that idea seemed valid, most of all, in the old, stagnant, dead culture, where ”nothing seemed to happen”. Nowadays, everywhere I look and most things I see, are disposable, quickly consumed, instantly ageing badly, and so on… suddenly idea of noise CD being and remaining perfect and as timeless now in 2021, as it was perhaps 1991 (say, Hijokaidan Windom!) is somehow delightful idea. Working probably as long as there exists player that can play cd.
Well, however, I’m not listening Hijokaidan right now, but this Worth CDR, which is damn good material. Broken, but very sharp, clear, yetsounds melting together nevertheless. Like feeding in sources and internal feedback at the same time and something slightly unexpected start happening. Harsh noise, but with a lot of ”acoustic” vibe, even if it is … highly electric!
I guess around 100 copies out there, and ideally CDr might be playable longer than I live, so not so much to worry about, haha… Just the mentioned opposition to ehm.. ”modern world”.

Worth mentioned in podcast Kiran Arora CD being among very top of new’ish releases. I liked when it came out, but wasn’t blown away. Feeling is still the same. I like it a lot, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, but for reason or another, not on my top of the year list.

Kapotte Muziek "25 years of Kapotte Muziek" CD celebration, other people doing remixes. I was listening the disc and Asra seemed unusually… ”art music”. Like proper instruments etc. Really good. Then a bit later, even better stuff emerges from speaker. So good, I had to stand up, walk to stereo systems to see who is playing, and it was good old Howard Stelzer!
I have one good memory of New York city (actually many..), where Howard suggested to check out THE best bagel place in New York before going to Boston. I am in cue before him, what was huge. As soon as I am at the desk, and guy ask what  want,  I start to check out what is available. Guy is pissed off in about 0,5 seconds and calls ”next”. Howies steps in, says I’m foreigner and couple salmon bagels please. It was a true ”soup naz1 experience” in new york. No complaints! Man can handle people, and the electronics!

Maeror Tri "1988-1996 collection of rare & lost" 2 x CD, really good double CD comp of early days of this german band. It has noisier, more industrial feel to many of tracks. Absolutely best tracks fall in style of brain shaped Language of Flames… album, but there is great diversity in this comp. Should be cheap if you see them somewhere. Just like above mentioned Kapotte Muziek CD. Still these days, less than new C-20 tape will cost you, you get good CD. All stuff recommended..

Since football game was cancelled, I decided to dig up some tapes for listen...

Hate Basement - "Pathetic" tape
I had no recollections of even owning this tape, let alone anything about the project. Nice variation in sound, distant echoing sounds, with bursts of violent noise and vocals. A side ends with tin can mayhem. Side B does more atmosphetic industrial sound, slowy morphing into ripping low end rattle accompanied by contact mic noise. Then I think there's a track changing or something, more harsh vocals and wobbly noise twisting around. Overall solid tape, now I have more mental recollections of this.


Mania - "Insidious and Alone" tape
Mania - "Decript" tape
Everyone knows Mania was good, and still is. I really love this type of Mania, dirty atmosphere, with interesting samples of walking, operating things and such. With crisp production and really maniac vocal work. Just a real pleasure to listen to, the untreated metal work, with amplified metal work and other sounds blending together perfectly, and the sound has proper amount of punch to it. There was none other like Keith with this kind of stuff.

There was talk with Keith that all FA tapes would be collected to one CD, after the "Raw nerves... " CD was done. Still feeling a bit strange about reissues, even if he did give the permission to do so in future.

Had some old Hippycrack tapes I was gonna listen to, a demo and a rehearsal material tape but they were both either dubbed with extremely volume or they both are broken the same way. But they were pretty much unlistenable. Shame.

Skin Graft - "Drug Addict" tape
I had a memory of this tape being a rather good one, and it certainly is. Especially like the side (no side markings mind you) that starts with water sloshing around, omnious low synth humming in the background. Just this really dirty atmosphere that reminds me of sewer water. Kind of like Mania, but way more rugged and lo-fi sound. Overall really good tape.

Being - "Hunters Fingers" tape
Mega saturated in distortion, sometimes completely blown out. Crackles and pauses. B-side was the strong side for sure, more diversity and oomph to it, there was a red line to follow.

Keränen - "As Below So Above" tape
Keränen live tape that has two gigs from the very different settings. A-side is played in the EST bunker with known hooligans present, excellent powerful sound! Known noise hooligans being extremely enthusiastic about the gig, you can just hear it. And I don't blame them! Keränen is ripping the fuck out of his noise gear, I'd be going a bit nuts myself. Love it how at the end of the set people are begging for MORE so they got a short burst of "encore" where crowd sounds like being in a noise ecstasy, haha!

Second gig takes place in a whole different venue. Keränen operates smoothly in noise thug dungeons and academic concert halls, such as this; Helsinki Music Centre. Sound is much more spacious, naturally. And also much more striking on high and mid tones. Precise noise attack on a somewhat unsuspecting crowd I'd assume,at the end there is a pause and then clapping, like at a real concert, not screaming their lungs out like on the a-side gig, haha. Very good counterpart for the a-side in your face sound gig, more refined sound and very powerful set on it's own way. Really damn good live tape!

Well, I hope that this cd might happen one day.  Those tapes are some of my personal favorites of his recordings (and noise in general).

Today I was listening online to Macronympha ‎– Grind. Never heard this before, what a total ripper. Exactly the type of harsh noise I like + perfectly executed and mixed. Tape from 95 now re-issued on cd. Any EU distros stocking this?

Got a new tapedeck recently and that Skin Graft was the first tape I played. Excellent atmosphere indeed, nice choice of sounds, super raw atmosphere.
