Label: Mattoid Records. Price: 5€ + 1,5 shipping. Cdr. "Semanario Químico" is a different disk, compact content and continent and certainly special. A good dose of sound somewhere between minimalism, the industrial and ritual in an album where the motivating idea can not explain better than the artist himself: Using the days of the week, each theme embodies the archetype of a planetary deity of the classical tradition (Monday-moon, Tuesday-Tuesday, Wednesday, mercury, etc) and his songs contain symbolism that corresponds to each of the deities in question, but focused on a somewhat extreme of life.

There is no atonement here, nor redemption offered. Just cold, jarring currents of massively built power electronics and horror filled death industrial, full of clamoring factory debris, razor sharp sheets of sonic violence, and grisly metallic grind, rounded out with Garrison's trademark vocal devastation.

Gabriele Fagnani refers to the project itself, as totalitarians Industrial. this album "adunat" falls sharply in less time than we expect from him and has to "collapse" even a melodic work, which would be attributed more to the martial. "We can resist, we must resist!" is one of the urgent messages that the listener with dark ambient sounds, noisy elements, samples and many of his distinctive voice will be taught. A highlight of the album is without question the 14 minutes remix of his previously most powerful piece, "Berlin Caput Mundi".

The duo has developed a carefully sonic identity which combines loud en quiet sound and to search for the limits of blissful noise. Trans-Dermal is a drony noise composition with several layers which started dark and sinister. Soon high pitched sounds develop into different kinds of noise. An intense piece of noise. Side B is filled with a noisy track of Carlos Villena, but has a more open atmosphere than the track of Cornucopia. The music is a combination of field-recordings of crickets and added electronic sounds and melodies. Cracked sounds come and go and fade away. Carlos Villena knows how to find melody in abstract noises. Source: http://www.vitalweekly.net/

Label: Truco espárrago. Price: 5 € + 1,50 € shipping."Continuity Of Deception / Black Hole Trip" is presented in a professional cassette with two tracks and 25 minutes of music, in an limited edition to 110 copies. "Continuity Of Deception" has a strong continuity with the original spirit of Generic Death. It’s a track that comes from deception, frustration and the most negative feelings of hatred and condemnation, to create a chaotic and obsessive track, with certain taste to crematorium free-jazz. The band crawls and twists, progressing through noise and feedback, a bass drowned in distortion and effects, and a desperately intense vocal work, over a mattress of harsh noise, creating an assembly of apocalyptic visions. Varunian has tones of dark ambient, noise and black, with a suffocating, dense, and decadent sound, and a concept so deep that transcends human nature.

Label: Lichterklang.Price: 9€ + 1,50€ shipping.After "Erlkönige" (2008) and "Ostrakon" (2009), IN SCHERBEN release their third album, "Dort an jenem Baume", which is their first release on "Lichterklang". While the two preceding albums were marked by the struggle for a distinctive identity, "Dort an jenem Baume" is not just the result of their acquired musical maturity, but, above all, an affectionate commitment to the concept of "Heimat", which can be experienced in Maren's and Lars's lyrics, but also in their musical interpretations of poems by Eichendorff, Nikolaus Lenau and Gottfried Benn and was inspired by their move from Leipzig to the Swiss Alpine republic. What elsewhere is often nothing but a common neofolk stereotype, a romantically idealised understanding of the homeland and its cultural and social origins, is transformed into a groundbreaking declaration of love, dedicated to one's own roots. Be it the Ruhr Valley, which is lyrically glorified in "Horizonte" or "Sachsenland", IN SCHERBEN's musical versatility and sparkling instrumentations are far from being restricted to clichés of the genre, but open up new horizons of classically inspired neofolk. Thus, they continue the tradition of strongly influential artists of the genre, such as Forseti or Dies Natalis, focussed on the essential and united in their consciousness of the virtues of an honestly and deeply experienced affinity with nature and cultural achievement.
Label: Mantricum Records. Price: 5€ + 1,5 shipping. ProCassette.Who has a split release with labelboss Carlos Villena. I am not sure if this is a split tape, with each having their own track, or if this extends to being a work of some kind of collaborative kind. Each has a piece that lasts ten minutes. Helms' side is set around a few sounds which return every and then. My assumption is that these are field recordings, maybe in a tunnel, outside in the field or something like that. It has an interesting feel to it, due to its loose organization. Sounds drop in, drop out in a rather light setting. Field recordings also play an important role in Villena's piece, which deals with car sounds (mainly in one channel only) and a nasty low end bass sound in the other. It pierces right into your brain. Its a bit too much, but perhaps its the wrong time of the day for that low buzz? Source: http://www.vitalweekly.net/

Travel the hallways and explore, as you venture into a more cerebral musical state than what brakeHEAD offered, where ghostly transmissions and hypnotic layers of surreal, ethereal atmospheres intersect with disembodied voices, clattering, furnace blasting percussion, and of course, healthy injections of true, old fashioned industrial noise and sweeping doom, done in the best Scandinavian style (imagine if Deutsch Nepal had continued in the same path laid down by Benevolence and you start to get the idea). The pacing of the album is truly impeccable, flowing seamlessly from to track, as if moving from room to room in a hazy, dream state, the layering and cohesiveness on a whole nothing short of meticulous.

"Oh Pequeño Muble / Los que habitan en la oscuridad” is presented in a professional cassette with two tracks and 42 minutes of music, in an limited edition of 56 copies. From there, or better said, from Bilbao, they proceed Mubles, a band formed in February 2008 by members with such an experimental background like Terri Florido (Kakofunk), Mikel (Xedh, Valvula Antirretorno, Baba Llaga), Álvaro Matilla (“3lp3rr0v3rd3", KRPNTRS), Carlos Valverde (Ravenofthybleakskyes) and Loty Negarti. The group works in its recordings and live actions with free improvisation, bringing danger and brutality back to experimental music. "Oh Pequeño Muble" is a psychologically intense, fragile, and unpleasant track, a descent to the sewers of soul, with the special prominent dada verses of Álvaro Matilla, that uncomfortably move between taboo and ridicule. The working rhythm of Grassa Data it’s simply prodigious. He closed year 2011 with a balance of dozens of releases in labels from all over the world, and it seems that in 2012 this Madrid resident does not intend to slow down this rhythm. Nevertheless, its characteristic abrasive sound, with creaky shrieks and satured masterizing, has not remained impassive, and has mutated constantly through noise, power electronics and psychedelic electronics. His proposal has incorporated new resources and atmospheres. "Los que habitan en la oscuridad" is the most industrial track in the discography of Grassa Data. Its masses of creaky and dense noise are mixed with rhythms and loops, feedback reverbered in hallucinogenic spaces and suffocating atmospheres of dark and violent shades. The concept is simple and terrific: "Kill Kill Kill Kill Kill Kill…".
Label: Malignant Records. Price: 9€ + 1,50€ shipping.The music of Oblivion Ensemble remains as elusive and surreal as the ever-shifting cast of musicians and performerswho participate, knowingly, or unknowingly in their work.Founding members are John Bergstrom and Brannon Hungness (aka Figure). Hungness is a virtuoso experimentalguitarist and composer and a former member of the Glenn Branca Ensemble. Bergstrom is a computer-musicgearhead and a film composer with a classical music pedigree, and mastermind behind the industrial-noise assembly Torse. Seraphim Hallucino is Oblivion Ensemble’s fifth full-length release, the first since the virtual opera “Nightmare:Sinistrotorse” (Complacency, 1995). At Seraphim Hallucino’s source are strange, electro-acoustic improvisations of percussion, trumpet, voice, synthesizers and guitar. These improvisations are sculpted and sampled, twisted and turned, shaped into building and diminishing moments, and, at times appearing alone, pure and unmodified. Deeply imbedded in the music and fragmented lyrics are secrets, intertwining themes, voices, and imprinted messages. All come together to create an enormously complex, mercurial mix of surreal, dynamic and dark sounds. To fully appreciate the scope and intricacies of Seraphim Hallucino, headphones in a darkened room are highly recommended. “ The band most likely to compose a fitting soundtrack for the end of the world. ” Sorted magAZine.“ Visionary gothic pyschedelia. ” The Wire.“ the most undefinable gorgeous musical anything that I have ever witnessed ... a beyond great performance, chilling and anxious. ” Best of Times.

Label: RONF Records. Price: 5 € + 1,5 shipping. ProCdr.This is the second edition of this Collection CDr which we firstly released in December 2007 and got quickly sold out, as we have been asked several times for it we decided to make this second press for giving a second chance to those who missed the 1st edition. The only change we introduced on this to differentiate both editions was a slight change in colour of artworks replacing red by yellow. For those who already have the first edition there is really no need to get this one because the record has the same structure exactly. This collection of early 7MON material includes at first place a 19 minutes unreleased recovered piece recorded during the studio sessions of their "The Noise Of The Rose" (7inch EP) released by TNT Records back in 1991, for fans of 7MON this is a precious recording because this enlarges that 7inch which has been one of the best reviewed back in time. Secondly this includes their side for a hard to find split tape called "Autodestrucción" released back in 1992 in the Peruvian label Cintas Extremas, running for nearly 12 minutes this features 7MON at their most fierce and serious noisecore style, truly a very worthly recording of nihilistic Noisecore. The third track here is a live recording of a gig in Kölhn (April 1994), this intense nearly 15 minutes recording shows us the not very heard live side of 7MON, this was included on 'No More Music' Compilation Tape released in 1993 by Onkel Tuka Tapes. The last two tracks consist of a couple of short (4-5 minutes) appearances on compilations done in 1992 both, being 'Rudi Rat Volume 4' (Comp. CD) and 'The Master Of Noise' (Comp. LP) released by Ecocentric Records and S.O.A. Records. Summarizing, all this stuff was recorded between 1991 and 1994 by Mick Hollows & Matthias Weigand, so if you want to explore into the early 90's Seven Minutes Of Nausea material here you're finding some of their rarest recordings of those times. Total Running time: 54 minutes. Second edition of 99 handnumbered copies pressed.

Like previous works, Rothko Field is a highly charged and visceral auditory experience...mind bending and turbulent sonic explorations that are grainy and tense, where uneasy frequencies intersect with caustic drones, infected, insectile buzz, swelling drifts, and intense, slow motion percussion driven sludgery. Further comparison reveals Rothko Field to be less schizophrenic, less challenging, and more structured than in the past, coming off as both spacious and yet suffocatingly claustrophobic (and ultimately closer in style to IRM), suggestive of a spiral downwards into mental decay and degradation, and further enhanced by Martin's uniquely distressed and provocative vocalizations. 9 tracks total, broken into two "mirrored parts", with track 5, "Void"acting as the actual mirror itself. In digipak, with full color 24page booklet. Not to detract from previous releases, but this is easily the best Skin Area work to date, and a must for all things Martin Bladh!

Label: Malignant Records. Price: 9€ + 1,50€ shipping.Having sold out of last year’s With Dirt You Are One CD within a few months span, supreme, Boston based cultists Sewer Goddess return to Black Plagve with Disciples of Shit: Live Waste, a fetid and raw collection of live audio crimes committed over a two year period from 2009-2010. Anyone who has witnessed Sewer Goddess live will generally know what to expect here, which is a more structured take on the death industrial, squalor filled atmospheres they’re known for. A more traditional band format adds layers of distorted and skuzzy bass, crashing percussion, and discordant guitar and meets head on with terrifying, blood curdling screams and the requisite churning mass of post mortem, electronic dirge. 5 tracks, most previously unreleased, that represent Sewer Goddess in the most raw, unclean, and unpolished of states….as if you’d want them any other way! In 6 panel digipak, designed by Andre Coehlo (Sektor 304). Track listing: Condemned Are the Unborn, We Ate Their Eyes, Mother Agony, Chained to the Edge of Existence/A Lifeless Dreaming, Slavepiece.
Label: Artilleria Pesada. Price: 8€ + 1,5 € shipping. DVDr. In the words of free encyclopedia Wikipedia, "Ankoku Buto” (暗 黒 舞 踏), known in the West simply as Buto-o Butoh in its English transliteration, is the name used to refer to the different range of dance techniques created in 1950 by Kazuo Ohno and Tatsumi Hijikata, who, touched by the fatal bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, begin your search for a new body, the body of the postwar period. It should be noted that during that decade, the images of some survivors who filled the streets walking with burned bodies and burst eyeballs hanging on their cheeks. Thus was born the Buto, dance into the darkness. Soizu is one of the exponents of Butoh in Barcelona with a history of three years more and more intense and open to experiment with different art forms (painting, theater, music, etc). Impertenencia includes their peformance in January 2010 in Sala Gràcia Arts Project during the fifth annual festival of extreme music PORNO GORE GARRI EXTREME FEST in Barcelona, 30 minutes of intensity, both visually and sound, with a backdrop formed by Cardona Adrià's work exhibited in the festival program under the title " Carn i Malsons” (Flesh and nightmares). It includes a bonus with photos and music from their performance in the second issue of TREMÒ FESTIVAL in Monistrol (Barcelona).
Label: Lichterklang.Price: 9€ + 1,50€ shipping."Gott vergelt’s", the second full-length album of Munich's SPREU & WEIZEN is a conceptual album concerned with the fall and second rise of the Roman Empire. The album's title is an allusion to a Southern German expression for "thank you", but is to be understood, as was the case with the first album's title "Gott erhalt's", as a play on words calling on God to retaliate against the decline of the Roman Empire. SPREU & WEIZEN's "Gott vergelt’s" features collaborations with Von Thronstahl, Art Abscons, Rose Rovine E Amanti and Karma Marata. As opposed to the aspiring Bavarians' first album, this CD can no longer be classified as purely neoclassical, which is mainly due to two new members who have had a strong impact on the project's sound. Apart from powerful slogans and fiery guitars, we are presented with an enticing melange of melancholic neoclassicism and gloomy Christian folk that has a decent Italian touch. The neoclassical project SPREU & WEIZEN was founded in 2009. In the beginning, the group consisted of two members, Sig P. and Hagalaz. After a slight change in style, embodying, amongst others, black metal and psychedelic elements, first concert plans were made, and guitarist Chris T. as well as flutist Iduna T. joined the group in the following year. Especially a collaboration with German poet Uwe Lammla and German martial industrial project Von Thronstahl, which was based on Lammla's poem "Deutsche Passion", was received with great enthusiasm.

Label: Mantricum Records. Price: 5€ + 1,5 shipping. ProCassette. The compilation tape with The Band, Z'EV and Carlos Villena has a complete other mood as the tapes mentioned before. The Band from Berlin composed together with Z'EV the composition "The Garden." A strong beat composed by Z'EV at a Yamahe drum machine supports the screaming and singing voice of Alexandra von Bolz'n, who sings like Diamanda Galas. All elements of the female voice have been explored. Fragment King added the bass and synths. The track lasts 18 minutes and for me it is too long to hold the attention of this music. At the other side of the tape Z'EV started with drum and maracas and transforms this rhythms to a rhythmical ritual. The voice of Alexandra von Bolz'n is one of the sound-sources in this beautiful composition. The music is a combination of steady going drums and experiments and improvisations with voice. The tape ends with a ambient track of Carlos Villena, created by highly mixed fieldrecordings. Again a nice piece of music which is a good epilogue of this compilation.

Label: Malignant Records. Price: 5 € + 1,50 € shipping.A brand new CDEP from Terra Sancta, originally planned as part of the next full length release, but the tracks here are significantly different from the newer material being recorded as to warrant a separate release. Sunken|Buried|Forgotten should be seen as a sort of bridge between Terra Sancta's past and future recordings, the three tracks here (total time roughly 23 minutes) representing the heavy droning sound found on particular parts of Disintegration; swaths of roughly textured, post-industrial drift, propelled forth with a massive back weight into a crescendo of epic turbulence, leaving a wake of swirling cosmic debris in its path. Once again, Terra Sancta shows an innate ability to push the limits of what is traditionally considered dark ambient. 4 panel digipak, lmtd 500 copies.

Label: Malignant Records. Price: 9 € + 1,50 € shipping. And so the journey formally ends for Wolfskin, 15 years from whence it began with the release of the Hidden Fortress cassette back in 1995. The essence of Wolfskin has transformed and mutated throughout the years, reaching on "The Stonegates of Silence" it's simpler form….one of desolation, solitude, insanity and death, the final frontiers of human existence. As he did with The Hidden Fortress: A Revisitation CD, Wolfskin once again pairs up with Anders Peterson of Objekt 4 fame, now operating under the name of Last Industrial Estate for the purposes of this recording. This is Wolfskin at its bleakest and most restrained, offering 5 tracks of enveloping ambience built around foggy, ambiguous textures and an endless flow of drifting isolationism, shapeless horrors, and oppressive subterranean heaviness. In the case of Stonegates, Wolfskin goes out not with a bang, but with a slow, evolutionary creep into the shadows, forever etched in the lexicon of dark ambient music. In 4 panel digipak.
