Label: Rage in Eden. Year: 2009. Price: 12 € + 1,50 € shipping. 12 tracks, 45 minutes, 3 panel glossy digipack. One year after his debut, George D. Stanciulescu returns with a neatly distinguished opus, this time reaching the heights of malignant Drama, in a suite of 12 tracks of majestic excess and voluptuously carven diversity. Elegant and compelling orchestral densities full of sophisticated charm, profound recesses, heart wretching scents of tragedy, viciously intense sopranos effusions, all morphed into a dynamic and ingenious set of cinematic impulses, elite livresque allusions and selected grains of madness. Ultimately emotional dramatic art with an excellent production, not to be missed by the admirers of (post)modern classical masters, industrial, dark ambient, opera/ethereal voices , Elend, Devil Doll or The Protagonist.

It started out as an experimental music project, taking a large influence from bands such as NON. In that year the „Carpet Bombing“ tape was released, musically it was firmly in the Noise / Dark Ambient style. In 2008 a follow up release entitled „Operation Archangel“ was released. Feeling he had taken this style as far as he could with this release, Michael focused on making music which was more natural and created the atmosphere he desired. Two tracks were recorded for compilation albums and following that the „Iron Will“ album was recorded and released in 2009. This was a big change for the band mixing the early elements of the band with Martial, Electronic and Neofolk. In late 2009 Michael began writing material for a new album. Determined to make a lage step forward, he started using much more professional recording and musical equipment. In the winter of 2009/2010 the „In Hoc Signo Vinces“ album was recorded. It is a varied album the main parts of which are Martial but also containing Dark Ambient and Neoclassical style parts and could be compared to such bands as Arditi and Blood Axis. The tracks on the album deal with such themes as Irish and European history, philosophy, war, nature, culture and disaffection from the modern world. It’s atmosphere is dark yet positive, igniting the flame of determination and unwillingness to succumb to the values of the modern world, harking back to the ancient values of honour and loyalty. German based „Lichterklang“ label offered to release the album, which was then mastered by Axel Frank (Werkraum). The artwork was created by Haate Kaate (Allerseelen, Svarrogh!).

Niiko (now the only member of Asmorod) used the word Hysope (French word for Hyssop) as a symbolism of spiritual purification. In ancient times, Hyssop was used for the cleansing of lepers (Leprosy may represent sin... but lepers were not necessarily sinful) and used for cleaning sacred places. It is alluded to in the Scriptures: 'Purge me with Hyssop, and I shall be clean' (Purify me from my sins, and i will be clean; wash me, and i will be whiter than snow . Psalms 51:7). Two tracks from that album feature choirs by eLL from Sui Generis Umbra.

Label: Ozonokids. Year: 2007. LP. Price: 10€ + 2€ shipping."Ozonokids is a noise/art/action type label from Barcelona, Spain, here with a split LP. Angeldust is an American power electronics group featuring the guy who is M Ax Noi Mach (see review elsewhere) and a couple other guys who lay it down harsh and heavy PE-style with low growling recitation and low growling electronic waves of free-form sonic hatred. They have a freewheeling and aggressive approach that threatens new territory for what really is a pretty limited genre. Fasenuova has a sound that is a little more unknown (though getting less so), some sort of mutant coldwave sound with good punk vocals and all-Spanish lyrics I can understand sometimes, like when he says "maquinas" and "la gente." I would check out this band again. Comes with excellent representative line-art on disco sleeve (pictured)." ( Blastitude.com )

That yes, always under the common denominator that surrounds the music created by Miguel LS: their complexity, darkness and enigmatic attraction. Strangers trips CyberPunks narrated by Avantgarde artist Kenji Siratori: a Japanese cyberpunk writer who is currently bombarding the internet with wave upon wave of highly experimental, uncompromising, progressive, intense prose. His is a writing style that not only breaks with tradition, it severs all cords, and can only really be compared to the kind of experimental writing techniques employed by the Surrealists, William Burroughs and Antonin Artaud. Embracing the image mayhem of the digital age, his relentless prose is nonsensical and extreme, avant-garde and confused, with precedence given to twisted imagery, pace and experimentation over linear narrative and character development. With unparalleled stylistic terrorism, he unleashes his literary attack. An unprovoked assault on the senses. Blood Electric (Creation Books) was acclaimed by David Bowie.

Work Dark made Experimental Ambient altogether with the experimental group Argentine Silence in First Degree and Gradual Hate, based on the work of Jeremy Bentham and M.Foucault (Discipline and Punish). The panopticon develops out of the need for surveillance shown in the plague. Plague measures were needed to protect society: the panopticon allows power to operate efficiently. It is a functional, permanent structure. The transition from one to another represents the move to a society in which discipline is based on observation and examination. The disciplinary society is not necessarily one with a panopticon in every street: it is one where the state controls such methods of coercion and operates them throughout society. The development of a disciplinary society involves socio-economic factors, particularly population increase and economic development.

What you get are straight forward hardcore bangings and ditto loops on which hardly any effects are applied, beats are clean’n catchy, simple’n fast. The release is quite varied, vocals are used in a very nifty manner, somewhere between human noise box and straight forward distorted singing - or something that comes near it. I’ve seen Max Noi Mach live at De Living, this release comes very close to what the guy does live. Get a copy and ask him for your next gig: billy_newman att hotmail dott com. Oh before I forget to mention it: the sleeve is a nice silk-print with on the front three naked chicks and on the back a pair of tits.

Each part of the trilogy has a correspondence with the three main hermetic-alchemical phases: Nigredo, Albedo and Rubedo and, at the same time and correspondingly, to individual experience, inheritance of our ancestors and, finally, the overcoming of a mere individual state of existence. This first part corresponds to Nigredo. The subtitle of this work - "A Theatre lost in The Vast Abyss of Starry Skies" came in a lucid dream in which appeared the idea that this world in which we live our day-to-day lives can be compared to a small theatre in a vast abyss of starry skies. This album is about a world of disquiet, in which a catharsis should be done. To gather the impurities, realize their nature and build something pure from there. The music follows the concept - there are elements of Folk, Ambient, Psychedelic and Experimental music, mixed in a coherent way, creating a unique sound and a breathtaking atmosphere, predominantly acoustic and with dark tones.
