Screloma - Amplifying Hatred
As soon as I saw there was Screloma CD available I had to get it from WCN. I have not heard the tape on Subliminal Propaganda (if you have this and want to part with it, send me a PM. Same goes for the split cdr with Antracot) but the sounds here are even more morose, grim and melancholic than on Rotten Sarkoma. The powerful line-in sound is here again but the overall sound is not as loud and a bit more varied and subdued as on that one. There's some very energetic moments of full blown rumbling oscillations and whirring synths but these moments usually fade into more desolate industrial soundscapes with very good use of samples and even melodic synthwork. There's not too many rhythms here and even they're mostly present on these short melancholic interludes that bring to mind the Predator soundtrack or Linekraft's great Industrialized Criminals History. There's some very venomous vocal action on few tracks also. I think my description here might make this seem more all-over than it really is but this is a very well crafted and quite monochrome sounding release very well depicting the horrors of war on the covers and song titles.

Scald Hymn - Hatfield Isolation Chamber
Right from the start this falls in the deepening hole of mixer overdriven(?) Junk sounds. But as with the Scald Hymn tape on Monorail Trespassing, the loops sound very composed and there's a very meticulous feel on this. The second track ups the intensity and distortion. The composed feeling and a keen ear for dynamics remain though. The thing I like on Scald Hymn is the restraint and ability to tone down the sounds to make dynamic pieces that don't lose momentum. The A-side closes with a shedful of creaking concreté.
 B-side starts with sound of chains or some other metal dragged on metal that gets drowned into a sea of tape rumble. Again, there's some very uplifting compositional tricks. This is noise that feels as much like a craft than music.

In WCN podcast Aprapat episode they were talking about The New Boyfriends ”3” tape, tape that unusual blend of noise and saxophone. Yes, indeed, but I would think sax is pretty common, and depending how you ”sense” it being played, there are other things than the… how could one describe it? Something else than sonic diarrhoea?
 
I was always fan of DISLOCATION (japan) "Carve Another Notch" CD, who I always associated as NOISE as they were on such labels and compilation, although I guess at times one could describe it free/improv/whatever. Live feel of sax/reeds/electronics/acoustic sounds. Lots of room, air, but also tension, noisiness. No way spasstic jazz, no way diarrhead sax blast, but something quite unique happening on all their releases. Not brutally HARSH, though.

IFOTS ”Blush” CD. I would say best IFOTS stuff is on Unrest and the one cd on Freak Animal. Cold Spring has good stuff, but when I listen for example ”Blush”, it is really one of the greats of IFOTS. Crystal clear, sharp and unique take on electronic noise.

ARV & MILJÖ "Orientering I Denna Värld" cd, less than 30 mins cd on analogue tape noises, harshness, rawness, yet as cover displays, it has certain… almost sonic architecture, some kind of monumental element in it, as opposed to ”vile” or .. ”disgusting” noise. Seeminly decayed and raw.

New WCN podcast, with TASKMASTER, perhaps project I am slightly less familiar with. I was listening episode, thinking I must have few things, but not that many. "Swamp Lurker" 12” one-sider on Troniks is something that it is certainly more harsh noise than what later was associated as ”HNW” (they talk about this in podcast), but sonically most of elements are things that wall stuff has plenty.
Pedal distortion blast. No feedback, barely ”acoustics”, no synths, etc, just distortion pedal characteristic sound - not in negative sense.
Listened this twice today, and it could take more spin instantly. Heavy noise. No tinny, no ripping thin razor, but heavy and hard.

Talking about great less known artists, I was doing some personal trades, and I got couple tapes that didn’t ask, but both turn out to be very good.
Energy Gradient ”Circulations” tape, absolutely great tape. First form artist? Maybe.  It has elements of noise, industrial, field recordings, tape manipulations. You could thrown together Alfarmania, Hum of the Druid, Sewer Electrion tape works, perhaps even little bit of H.Ö.H., and so on. I guess one gets just about the territory he is operating at.
What is great here, is that it is compositionally so good. Starts with quiet loop/microsound crackle kind of thing, but you won’t be listening full side of piezzo crackles kind of thing, but it soon escalates into murky and grim noise, and eventually into broken chewed tapes of field recordings and raw noise.
B-side has it all too. From strong noise moments to dirty basement clatter loops and eerie screeching machinery. Backwards tapes and other old school, but always great methods. Always lo-fi in tasty way.

Guy of E.G. is also one member in Elastic Energy Ensemble. That tape is full on harsh noise. Nothing revolutionary, but very good in what it is. Nice graphics, sounds pretty much like could be live-in-studio tracks. Not quick edits not massive multilayering. Sound is liverly and always things happening, but basic pallette is pretty much same through-out entire duration. I suppose this project may be more known, due label was probably somewhat hyped? Gracial Host. I never head any of them, as this label works out pre-order batch kind of way, and I am probably worst in  placing pre-orders. Don’t recall if I ever really pre-ordered any noise?! Some wholesale orders of course, but probably not retail orders.

Stimbox / AUM / Death Squad CD. Stimbox does couple harsh tracks. Good stuff. AUM is collaboration of S & DS, I think it is safe to assume that Tim does the high pitched lively feedback electronics and Michael the bassy brutal crunchy background? It would go in lines what they were doing at the time.
This is before the classic Theological Genocide album, where DS sound changed dramatically. All the tapes before it, are ultra distorted, crunchy, bass loaded noise. Often loops. Debut CD turned into treble-only ”power electronics”. Tracks on this split are still in line with early tapes. Simple, brutal, noise. At the time, quite amusing Terminator 2 sample. Ain’t that popular anymore to have blockbusters sampled to power electronics and some cyber warfare sounds going on below the noise. From the 90’s I recall at least 3 guys sampling Terminator 2. Death Squad, Netzach, Propergol.

Putrefaction Orchestra - Sequential Stages of Decomposition tape
Sludgy analogue electronics, decayed synth sounds and medical/postmortem samples. Really appeals to my taste as it would anyone into Disgusting Sanctum, Slaughter Prods and the like. Worth checking out.

CREDO - Triumphant Throes of Warfare tape
A continuation of Chad Davis' Torturecide project. More in common with the old German sound of Tesco and early Loki Found than it does the last Torturecide release. Solid tape of heavy electronics.

Form Hunter "Wrecked" tape
I was saying earlier I have no Gracious Host label stuff other than tape I was recently sent. Nah, actually this tape is also on that label. When I got it, and who sent it to me, can’t remember anymore, but it was among pile of tapes already on shelves I installed on wall while ago, so listened and appreciated, but perhaps couple years ago? Came out in 2019.
Now back in tape deck and I like it probably more now that I have gotten to really ”know” what Form Hunter is about. Instead of just one more harsh noise tape, one can actually appreciate its approach in more detail.

Rusalka "Revisualizations" tape
New Forces
For me this sounds better than the much praised LP? Not saying one should not grab the LP, but if having possibility to pick either or, I’d recommend go for the tape! Faster paced, kind of more going on, it feels noisier, but also some almost heavy electronic type oscillation moments found on it. LP takes longer to get going. Of course if one seeks for more bleak and minimal, that is decent.


Sound of Hate series part 2, 6 and 8.

vol 2 has lots of goodies, but especially Intrinsic Action "First cold" track.. damn! Is it exclusive to this comp tape still today??? I think Solotroff could continue I.A. reissue series with some tasty compilation tracks!


vol 6  Japan comp. Known heroes and quite obscure names, goes down so smoothly… King Of Pigs (K.O.P.), who also did material under other names. Dozens of variations of initial. I usually associated it to be Kultur Operating Penis. 80's Japanese industrial-noise style.
Mackerel Can Molding Company was band featuring guy of N.P., who had tape on Masami's label already in 1985. He was also member in early Gerogerigegege recordings. 15 min track here! Seems that some pretty much unheard material exists out there.
While 1st side is the guys more associated with 80's scene, B-side of comp is solid assault of Thirdorgan, MSBR, Aube who dominated the 90's!

vol 8 UK comp. Out of all the good tracks, almost 10 minutes long The Grey Wolves live track is such a treat! Lots of acts rarely mentioned these days. Dachise, Abuse of Power, Hex Minora, and so on..

Just listened to this on YT, good stuff, especially the last track is really good. Any idea where this can be found? On discogs there was a link to a bandcamppage that was already deleted.

I have been absorbing the new Prurient album Creationist -  I paid for the digital files as importing a stack of tapes, books and vinyl at huge expense from across the pond is not a cost I can justify right now.  I shall most likely make my own 2CD package for this so I can keep a copy in the car.

This feels like a great follow up to Rainbow Mirror in terms of direction and scope - quite a focused band of sounds, loops and controlled chaos... pretty much what I have been trying to achieve with my own amateurish project but Prurient manages it with precision and balance (and the decades of practice helps too).  Yeah its noisy but its also pretty damn polished.  I shall get a lot of repeat listens from this album, as I still do with Rainbow Mirror, and I shall probably have more to say on it at a later date.  Favourite track so far is "Skyline Hunting Humans" as it encapsulates the dismal repetitive nature of what I try to create in a very neat package, and manages to progress to a few different places before bowing out.  A strong release IMO.

Best to contact Chad directly. He's on fb, instagram etc...

Quote from: Zeno Marx
Walter Marchetti

After the Marchetti talk in this topic I went ahead and bought a copy of his 2nd LP that was missing from my collection. Long piano piece on side A and 2 electronic tracks on side B. The 2nd one from 1973 sounds like contemporary noise. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJ7xDaJfLZo

That Taskmaster thing was bugging me. I -must- have some other Taskmaster than just the 12”. Of course, this Taskmaster / Wince split tape, early WCN release.. Both good, Taskmaster very neat and Wince even better.

In morning, I listened couple of time The Rita Gamzatti (excuse multiple times linking, if interested, here a bit about it: https://special-interests.net/main/iconic-surfaces/  ). I was kind of amazed how in Taskmaster interview, it seemed as if the guys were cautious to even mention ”HNW”. As if it was some unwanted disease that just leaked out and turned disaster.. haha.. Well, that The Rita album is brilliant, and man must be hailed as one of most important noise artists of this millenium, no question about it.

Leichenhalle ”Industrial armageddon - metal becomes flesh” tape. Late 90’s Polish industrial-noise, power electronics type of thing. This is something that could/should be reissued. Who knows does anyone really want to hear it, but I feel this project at its best is no less than Söldnergeist, Dagda Mor or whatever happening some years before! I got to trust what I read, and it seems like people indeed are little touchy about even moderately spicy song titles these days. Some tapes of project, even if just tasty industrial noise, may have to remain in form of original tape editions…

What is turn off / dislike for me in "noise", is knowing that you should have it, but you can’t find it, regardless of how much browsing your shit. Few times purchasing it again, just to realize "aahh, THAT one.." and realizing you missed it as was thinking packaging was different and just browsed over the item several times... You know, fucken’ hell, is it possible that I would not have Ramleh ”hole in the heart” 2xCD. I almost believed it, and it was miserable turn off for entire 2021

A certain noteworthy user here talks well of that great track.  His piano work makes me want to get out Palestine's Strumming Music and Julius Eastman.  Any number of other piano pieces would work for that long meditation.

I pulled out Iancu Dumitrescu - Pierres Sacrées/Hazard and Tectonics this week, and it fits nicely with that contemporary sense of industrial via avant-garde.  Yeah, man...Ana-Maria Avram & Iancu Dumitrescu.  They know how to make dust fall from the rafters.

You can't talk like this without at least trying to reissue it, can you?  Never heard of it.  Sounds great.

Altar Of Flies - Återblick
I had not heard the Inblick and Överblick tapes before so this was 100% all new stuff for me. Fantastic release in every possible way: it looks good and it sounds great. I was under the impression that this was supposed to be a bit noisier AoF material but to my ears it sounds the same living/breathing organic material as before. Maybe with longer noisier parts? If this is not among the best releases this year then it is going to be one hell of a noise year!

Maranata - Dry Lungs
Never heard of this band before but if New Forces is putting it out it is most probably worth checking out. Noise with saxophone. John Zorn-ish sax strangulations on top of solid harsh noise. What's not to like?

Barstool Mountain - Birth Canal
Barely had time to hear the first tape before I received this. I'd say this is pretty close to what I imagined the Altar Of Flies 3xLP would have been when I though it was going to be harsher material. This is also very organic with plenty of dynamics, not just blown out rumbling. Great new project.

Knurl - Sensory Eradication
'90s Knurl! Alan Bloor has been releasing solid harsh noise as Knurl for over 25 years. There have been no periods when his material would have been somehow inferior or anything, it's always been good. This is an unreleased tape from 1998 and it's great that this was not left to gather dust in the Knurl archives. It is from the first 5 years of Knurl so maybe it is a bit more straightforward that some later Knurl but it is still a scorcher! Full blast harsh noise with no mercy or quiet moments to catch one's breath.

Aube - Flood-Gate
One of my all time favorite Aube releases (if not the best). Calming water ambience slowly builds up to thunderous waterfall noise. Perfect.

Merzbow/Pan Sonic - V
A live collaboration from 2002. This was not too long after Merzbow switched his godly analog noise machinery to a laptop. His laptop stuff is not always the best but here it works very well with the rhythmic clicks, noises and bleeps of Pan Sonic. It really feels like a combination of Pan Sonic and Merzbow. Lots of more quiet moments (like Merzbow had around that time, like on Puroland or Fantail) so it is not just total laptop noise with Pan Sonic trying to come through in the mix but a balanced whole.

DANIEL MENCHE - Primal Fictions LP (Ferns, 2020)
Furnace Fucker and all that, excellent stuff. But to me he’s better than ever nowadays, and has been for years. This LP is a cathedral of chiming tones, with vibrating drones of all sorts worming their way through its halls. At times almost threatening in atmosphere, but most of all beautiful throughout. The flipside, while keeping the cathedral-like resonance, has an air of nighttime desert. A powerfully amplified one that is.
There’s alot going on at all times on this record. For the most part, that is a strength, with so many unexpected combinations of sounds colliding (amplified rubber band, field recordings, percussion etc next to metal chimes and whatnot), but there are moments when I feel it would have been even more majestic had he stripped off some layers and left just a couple dominate on their own. All in all though, what a great record!

And to my surprise I noticed that Ferns had slipped an older release into the jacket as a bonus (Again! Not the first time they’ve done that.):

DANIEL MENCHE - Blood Of The Land 3” CD (Ferns, 2010)
A massive wall of, well, wind! Rain on buckets, the occasional animal sound, dust and dirt. Not too far from what Romero did on Negative, in a way. ”Storm recordings (…) mixed and mastered (…) in the analog domain”, absolutely stunning stuff. Need to play this one real loud when I get the chance.
As for this being a freebie, heh… pressed in 500 copies in 2010. My memory isn’t the best, but I have no recollections of 3” CDs in flimsy paper covers being all the rage back then. But I’m very glad to have this!

YKSI "Liberté! Liberté!" CDR

xlent and tasty noise project from sir uton. as already heard on satatuhatta release here we get more of fuzzed up tornado storm avalanche, not so heavy, but flying high in upper middle range ... lots goin on and never resting. sounds somehow like 90's noise tape. as with all things hirvonen, there is an underlying cosmic meditation undertone to this... heavy meditation?! haha

when this dude sleeps at all is a mystery to me: magma tones records, uton works, paintings, zine, now this yksi project, contributing to ikuisuus records....
