From Bandcamp streaming cause ... well, go find the tapes yourself, impossible, unless you want to pay loads !

Yellow Gas Flames, "Zen Carbon Monoxide" tape ep and Accepting The Necrophile double tape. Short one, with more high pitched, lo-fi harsh noise blend with some movie audio-track type of sounds behind it. Double tape, more solid harsh noise, makes me think of older thirdorgan. It’s fast, texture is always on the move, but remains in quite narrow range of noises. Harsh, but not utterly boosted and punishing. More suffocated fidelity and less punch. All these, being good qualities! Also good song titles on "zen carbon.."!

I like the packaging, colorful artworks, size and... even the smell is a bit like... you don't get this when it's factory sealed pro-tape missing all the qualities what "self made" releases have.

Howard Stelzer & Campbell Kneale
The World May Congratulate Itself That Desire Can Still Be Raised In The Dulled Hearts Of Its Citizens By The Rumor Of An Emerald (Version 2)

Re-work of the very limited 2016 CDr, re-edited & re-mastered in 2020. Masterful droning by these two and a great example of two artists elevating each other. Not that either aren't already exemplary in their own right, but this release is really fantastic. Listened laying in bed with headphones last night and there is a lot of nuance and detail to the sounds. Highly recommended and a steal at the "name your price" option currently on Bandcamp.

I've  been working my way thru the latest Fusty Cunt and Easy Listening batches, all kinds of great stuff starting to show up.

Mallard Theory / Burnt Feathers - Split C32 - Fusty Cunt 2021
To the point, fast and intense harsh noise from some real Pittsburgh heads. Mallard Theory side brings a confident, extra lofi attitude without at all losing the character of it's components. Piercing, tinny synths shred over ominous low-end rumblings. Bass (guitar?) hits rumble through like a tornado siren. Squirming and heavy stuff.  Burnt Feathers (Niku Daruma and other great projects) brings some vocals into the mix, while maintaining a similar density of sound. Heavy and thick mix, synth, bass, piercing feedback. Both play well off each other!

Kwashiorkor - I Have Kwashiorkor - C45 - Fusty Cunt 2021
Described as a mix of doom, noisecore, and PE, this one upended my expectations. Drums and bass on a handful of tracks bring the doominess, though never getting too "songlike"; this hits more like MITB/powerviolence on a cassette deck with dying batteries. All 3 contributors (folks from the US, German, and Ireland) provide vocals and noise, while percussion brings some level of "structure" to the 6 tracks. Amorphous and filthy noisecore, slowed down and bludgeoned.

Dosis Letales / Mo*Te - Split C20 - Fusty Cunt 2021
Dosis Letales' side is crunchy HNW, the only dynamics really being stop/start moments in otherwise brickwalled noise. At ten minutes, it doesn't wear out it's welcome. The Mo*te side is great - very filthy recording, closer to something like "stash" than the newer material, though still maintaining the strange rhythmic quality of the past few releases.

Gates of Janus - 3xC46 - Easy Listening 2021
Downer synth duo of Thom Elliott and Knox Mitchell. I loved this - rhythmic industrial built on a handful of elements per side. The drum machine hits are so thick and play well off the strange synth lines. Simple melodies unfold over time; bleak and confident tunes.

Lidless Eye - Slanted Surface - C30 - Easy Listening 2021
Intense and heavy synth noise. Liner notes indicate it's all MS10, MS20 and tape, recorded in one take, and that's what you get. Choppy synth lines mashed with obscured vocals, chaotic frequencies, and semi-rhythmic sequenced moments all blend into a thick haze of unhinged chaos.

Many of the "holidays" this summer, out of town for weeks. Possibilities did not allow noise listened all the time! One thing listened from bandcamp, was Mark Solotroff new solo album.
https://marksolotroff.bandcamp.com/album/not-everybody-makes-it
Due current shipping rates, its unlikely album will really make it to European distributors, so listening at bandcamp seems fine.
Pretty good stuff I would say! Can’t say I would have heard all his solo works, but compared to older stuff - which was often decent material too - it seems like this is advanced in composition and sound! It is always delight to see the veterans of genre to progress! Five 10 minute tracks of quite ”drone” oriented at times. Even quiet, but also more noisy synth sounds are included.

CLEANSE "The prince" 12"
Hospital prod
I am sort of surprised that this 12” is as cheap and easy to get as it is. Of course format and length might not be preferred by many. c. 15 minutes vinyl release, one-sider. Content is decent. Ripping pe-noise, makes me think a bit of Strict blending with History of Aids type Prurient or something around that type. Not heavy electronics, not very structured. Just feedback and nasty electronic noise. From 2008, from mr. Holger. Edition about 150, on Hospital prod.

Spine Scavenger "crossfire in skanatel attack" 12"
Troniks
about 20 minutes one side 12” on Troniks. If I’d say rhythmic electronic loops, feedback treatments and such, that probably makes one think something entirely different than what this is. However, that is quite accurate description. Hard electronic pulsations has nearly musical quality, but I would rather file this among -noise- than anything else really.

Birth Refusal 12”
continues my recent re-visits to Troniks one siders. Raw electronic noise sessions.

Rasthof Dachau "Blut & Boden" LP 2nd press.
Steinklang
Discogs has banned the 1st press LP from 1998 and the metal box special edition, but all later pressings are available cheap. This one came like 4 years after first edition. I actually like more this utterly simple, very much ”old power electronics” type of glued little title on top of plain cover. Also band may be here better than in some other stuff. I recall split VHS with G.O. Was somehow more… performance art/indusrial blend? Haveb’t watched that for ages, gig was from 1993. Later works, like Prison Poems, is cleaner than this one here, and vastly more linear and one-dimensional. 1st LP has surprisingly good blend of experimentation, physicality and noisiness combined to hard euro-pe / old school industrial material.

Black Seas Of Infinity "Within Daathian Chasms" extremely low fi death industrial / death ambient for this American project, which - in my opinion - belongs to a very underrated, yet extremely good little "scene", together with other great projects like Dapnom or Taog Susej, grown around 15-17 years ago around labels like Antihumanism or Autumn Winds, closer to black metal rather than to electronic music. Spooky and minimal evil ritualistic ambient music with absolutely NO frills or "intellectual" purposes. Just darkness.

Dapnom doesnt get mentioned as much as they deserve. I got some the bloody tapes at the time they were happening. BM obsessed guy played it at his place and it was too weird and great to pass. But the tapes were quite varied. One might be total monotony and other might be very happening.

Spoke with Dapnom years ago about doing releases, nothing ever eventuated. He now plays classical under his real name and if i recall has received decent success with that.

Thanks for mentioning this.  Never heard of BSoI.  Not sure I hear nothing but darkness and no frills, but that's for another time.  This is a lot of fun because I'm hearing it in a similar way to how great noisecore can be done.  Conceptual or storytelling or something akin to that.  Situational noisecore like Traci Lords Loves Noise, Rectal Pus, or who not.  If I was putting this in a mailorder catalogue, I'm not sure how I'd label it or describe it.

NORD "LSD" LP
I recall back in the day, making offer of, then outrageous 150 or was it 250usd for original LP. I have only couple times paid that kind of money for album. Couple Hijokaidan originals I paid probably 150, which seemed mistake after seeing them sold in Japan fraction of the price when I first visited there. Whitehouse Right to Kill and GO debut I paid also good money. I guess just about everything else was bought for pretty much regular prices. Handful of LP’s for 50e, but that is soon probably new normal for any LP’s.. hah..
Well, NORD LSD, I guess it sold for way more than my offer (auctioned by RRR, not on ebay, but privately). In 2011 someone in Germany made replica bootlegs of the 2nd and 3rd NORD LP’s. I think sound is good and cover ain’t hopeless either, even if its blurry and odd texture on pictures. Most of all, one can conclude that the NORD debut, with original line-up is vastly superior compared to LSD. This one is not bad really, but merely clumsy psychedelic kraut type works, as opposed to early NORD immersive noise soundscapes.
Factually, tons of new tapes are better than this, yet something made me -again- pull this LP on turtable instead of something… ”better”?

MB "Evidences vol 1" 5xLP box
VOD
I recall back in the day, long before MB did the comeback, his stuff was so mysterious. Bootleg tape dubs sold by some tape labels of the time and tracks found from compilations.
Then access for archive CD’s changed things and you could access a lot of stuff. Eventually felt as if ”a lot” became too much for me.
Lost the urge to get more MB than I already had. Never liked any of the comeback stuff, so that sort of escalated that I felt I have probably way more MB in shelves than I REALLY need.
So something like this box… it came out 2007, and first time hit on my turntable now.
Seemed like time was now right, on the mood for some MB. And hell yes, not only ”on the mood”, but I could conclude that this box-set compiling many of the tapes that came out in one and same year, 1980, is brilliant stuff. Of course I have some of this stuff on other formats, and it was not a surprise it is great… nevertheless, somehow gave rebirth for absolute appreciation of MB works.
When you really think of what stuff we have here, and that it all was done in 1980, and you can take a quick look about the state of NOISE back then… Who would not appreciate MB!?
4th LP on rotation, and proceeding…
If you do not have to much of MB, this box is well worth to grab. I don’t think it became too expensive or rare meanwhile..

INADE "colliding dimensions..." 4xLP box
Loki
after five hours of MB, already starting with 2nd LP out of INADE 4xLP box. Dark, sinister sounding things going on here. Throat singing or some sort of invocations, tribal instruments, dark tones, dragging metal junks and some distant echoing bounding sounds…

ESP KINETIC "want some of this?" LP.
Harbinger
A bit dirty pressing, snap, crackle & pop through entire LP, but in other hand, it is -dirty- old school industrial works. Nasty keyboard patterns, drum machines, flanger vocals, some metal junk smashing noise tracks too. Overall rotten and mid-range hollow sound, like boombox or walkman recording done in early 80’s. So even with surface noises, it works ok.

MILITIA "New European Order"  3 vinyl set
PDB
one of all time favorites, and most listened junk percussion industrial albums. Their best works too, due the analogue production what makes the overall sound vastly better than in later works. This album is so good, it never sounds dated in wrong way.

The Archangels Of Sex Rule The Destruction Of The Regime
So here was one of those holy grails that would mock me every week in the shop, priced three to four times higher than any other cassette sold at the time (early-mid 90s). The two of them [ed. Archangels & Beast 666] were similarly priced, I think, though I'd managed to cop Beast 666 some years earlier. I knew I absolutely needed Archangels but that need was balanced against the certain knowledge that I was being played for the silly sod I was (am, cough). No other suckers would go for it, obviously, cuz it sat there for months (years?). I don't even remember if I actually finally caved (probably), or if I managed to cop it somewhere else (doubtful).

There were two reasons I needed it and their names were Ain and Soph, in that order, as I was absolutely in thrall to everything I had with said names on it (about three things- Ars Regia, Kshatriya and what I will always stubbornly call Exarp Hcoma Nanta Bitom). Came for the Ain Soph and they were everything I hoped, two tracks sounding much in the Ars Regia vein - borderline crappola occult indulgences with an undeniable indomitable atmos occasionally to be named (by me) "ritual dirge" - but arching somewhat to the left of overlapping sessions, beauteous disembodied belchings lending just the correct gutterfelch spelunkings.

Came for the Ain Soph (to a lesser extent the Metgumbnerbone), stayed for the Ewald Spiss. Ewald Spiss. Now here's a character- still going strong! A perfect and perfectly primitive oddity of atmosphere but really I think the star of the comp. (The turn as Kathan Spiss on Beast 666 no slouch at that.) Again that dusky disembodied dirgesmosphere waffling over call-n-response assortment of semi-regular thunk, scrape and wallop, sitting well up or down in the mix as the respective track directs.

Grand Celestial Nightmare - Forbidden Knowledge and Ancient Wisdom
This is a really refreshing take on understated symphonic black metal from Mories of Gnaw Their Tongues (and dozens of other endeavors). Pretty blown away by this one—highly recommended. While catchiness and strong melodic content isn't always what I'm looking for in black metal, this album delivers both in droves—lots of memorable riffs and great interplay between guitar and synthesizer. Probably not for everyone here, but I'd suggest giving it a shot. The cover art is beautiful, too.

Sadio/Prurient - BDSM Atlantic Partnership
Really solid split here. Sadio side is appropriately punishing—demented screams over growling lawnmower noise. Prurient side is great too—I like that Dom is still willing to break away from the more produced side of Prurient that has sort of dominated the project over the last decade (which I also enjoy a lot) and slip into the raw, tortured, and formless depths noise and P.E.. Glad I seized an opportunity to snag this one. Definitely less enamored with the Exploring Jezebel tape I picked up in the same order, but that's OK.

I'm currently in the process of running through the Burning Star Core/Prurient - Ghosts Of Niagara 10xCS box, but the fact that they're all C10s and that listening through whole thing requires stopping what I'm doing and running over to the tape deck 20 times, it will probably be a while before I get through it all. However, the material is pretty great.

I've also really been enjoying Magnetic Coroner - Time Maligned. This guy makes great fucking noise. Lots of awesome tape fuckery, super satisfying textures, and really engaging sounds throughout. Will definitely be picking up more from this project.

Scald Hymn - Lilac Drain [New Forces]
I picked up the Balming Mechanism Tape on Monorail Tresspassing last year and played it a LOT.
Then earlier this year I managed to grab a copy of the Instance of Home CD - my first Troniks purchase.
I was excited to get hold of this tape and this style of noise is my particular sweet spot - crunchy blown out low ends with a bit of high end for balance, but interesting use of instrumentation, sparse and subtle field recordings and compositions.  There are moments of real calm that highlight the dense blasts of noise when they puncture through. 
So I guess I consider myself a fan of this project, and this release is well suited to New Forces alongside the Kjostad discography.

Just a few short remarks on some recent stuff I bought;

Beuys / Pissoff - Creamcheese Düsseldorf LP; live recordings from 68 and the only surviving Pissoff recordings. Pissoff was an art school free jazz noise project by Eberhard Kranemann and some friends which morphed into Kraftwerk. Joseph Beuys, their professor, invited them to play at one of his performances. The quality of the recordings is better than I expected and the music will appeal to fans of the Nihilist Spasm Band, Airway, etc. Actually, just a really good LP.

Gust de Meyer - Casioworks LP; reissue of a Ding Dong Records tape from 1983. 8 tracks recorded live with only a Casio calculator. Sounds like a mix of primitive synth pop and vintage video game music. The only recordings from this obscure artist who later became a professor. Recommended if you like this type of stuff.

Alberich - Machine Gun Nest LP; powerful industrial and rhythmic noise. I have some more Alberich records but it's not something I play often. This collection reminded me to revisit his other material. Nicely produced mix of industrial, power electronics, techno and ambient. A bit like those Hymen/Ant-Zen records I used to buy in the 90's.

Lucy & Aaron LP - Aaron Dilloway and Lucrecia Dalt collaboration. Sold out pretty fast but I believe a 2nd edition is on the way. Saw some people recommend this here and I have to agree this is a really great record in the vein of the recent loop-based Dilloway LP's. I can't hear a lot of Lucrecia Dalt on side 1 but what she contributes nicely complements the atmospheric, surreal sounds of Dilloway. Best collaboration I heard since a while.

BJ Nilsen - Ore LP; a beautifully packaged picture disc that seems to have escaped most people's attention because it was released on a small label with hardly any distribution. I comes in a die cut sleeve with a large booklet and numbered insert. The sounds on this record are a mix of field recordings and minimal drones for the patient listener. Focussed and strong material. After the first listen I revisited the Short Night and Invincible Cities cd's on Touch that i bought once because they were recommended to me by a good friend and loyal Boomkat follower. It seems Nilsen ended up somewhere between some of the different scenes as his name doesn't seem to get mentioned a lot these days, which is a shame.

Aaron Dilloway & Jeph Jerman - Casual Collisions CD; digipack with nice pictures of the home studios of both artists (I guess). It took me about 5 seconds to decide I needed to buy this reissue of a cdr from 2013 as I'm a big fan of both artists. This cd starts out as a regular Jerman record to my ears, which is a good thing. Slowly some of the typical Dilloway sounds seem to surface and when the record seems to get going it's already finished. To be honest I expected a little more but obviously still worth getting.

Z.O. Voider ‎– Perpendicular Groove CD; saw this announced just when I was digging into Turman's discography. I really like Flux and some of the more accessible later records. This is an old collaboration project from 1988; typical early industrial with elements of Grey Wolves, Le Syndicat, etc. The first half is from an early recording session in 86 and sounds more muffled with a lot of hiss when compared to the second half which was recorded in 88. This sounds like a straight tape transfer and could've maybe used a bit of mastering for this cd release.

Altar Of Flies – Signaler CD; I first played this in the background while working and really liked it.Then I listened to it in my car with more focus and it was still good but a totally different experience somehow. Crumbling soundscapes, field recordings and varied textures nicely mixed and mastered. Sometimes it feels a bit like the sounds are just floating without direction but overall just a great listen that I keep coming back to. And I also like the artwork.

Mlehst – Her Single Desire & Deep Throat And Felching CD's; I have a few Mlehst items in my collection but his vast back catalog is so intimidation I never know where to start when I want to check out some more. These 2 reissues were a welcome starting point for further exploration for me. In my mind Mlehst is one of the bridges between the avant garde (NWW), drone and the noise scenes. The Deep Throat cd is my favorite of the 2 and more in line with the other material I have. The other cd sounds more like conventional harsh noise and could've used some more dynamics or variation.

Kjostad ‎– Knuckle Gash 7"; one of my favorite contemporary noise artists with a nice mixture of some of his typical sound elements with a nice build up on side A and a chunk of metallic junk noise on the other side. Somehow these pieces feel a bit less focussed when compared to his other material, like these are fragments of longer pieces. Nice collage artwork.

Graustich – Irrational Fear 7"; industrial pulsing rhythms, synth noise with some hints of Tesco/Unrest style power electronics. Enjoyable white label 7" with a tiny numbered insert.

One of my last played noise tapes is Citalopramy Shunyata - Countess, released by Narcolepsia. Comes in a ziplock back with black print on a purple paper cover. Bit hard to describe the noise, it's not really harsh or extreme most of the time, but it's good.
