Abandoned Asylum - Derelicts of Distant Hope ( Malignant: TumorCD63)
The debut album from Poland’s Abandoned Asylum and a welcome new entry into the Malignant family, fitting nicely alongside roster mates Rasalhague, Collapsar, and Phelios, in its ability to explore not only the outer edges of the cosmos, but deep into catacombs and dimly lit underground passages. Derelicts of Distant Hope is a collection of 7 tracks in total where shape shifting tonal swells are met with a host of nebulous textures, distant mechanical whir and industrial debris, and drifting atmospheric desolation, all expertly constructed and layered into a sprawling and expansive whole. With dark ambient, it’s not so much about re-inventing the wheel (which isn’t so easy to do given the genre’s defining characteristics) as much as it is about setting the mood, and Abandoned Asylum accomplishes that with great precision and skill. In 6 panel digipak, lmtd 500 copies.. $8.00

Abattoir/Satori - Aether CD ( Malignant: TumorCD94)
A collaborative work between Italy’s Lorenzo Abattoir and legendary UK project Satori, Aether is a densely constructed and multi-layered assemblage of chordal swells, whirring machinery cogs, aberrant rituals, and sprawling, tar-black atmospheres. Even as parts reach cataclysmic levels of intensity and magnitude, this is the sound of chaos merging with order, where every detail and nuance seems to be carefully regulated and controlled.Formed in 1982 and immersed in the industrial and power electronics culture, Satori has released music on the legendary Broken Flag, Tesco, and Cold Spring, with "Aether" representing a new statement of intent of original member Dave Kirby. Lorenzo Abattoir is an Italian-based noise artist and sound engineer whose work takes shape in a context of underground extreme music to become accessible through various projects related to contemporary art, including Psicopompo with German composer Hermann Kopp (4IB Records), the electro-acoustic collective Mare Di Dirac (Dusktone Records), and a collaboration with Phurpa. Limited 300 in b/w glossy digipak, and co-released between Ukraine’s Old Captain Records and Malignant, Aether is a skillfully crafted and absorbing work sure to appeal to fans of all sub-genres of true industrial music.

Abbildung - All Demons Are Horned CD ( Winter-Light: WIN004)
"Dark Ambient from the dark realm of dreams.ABBILDUNG's 10th years anniversary CD entitled 'All Demons Are Horned' puts together probably the best work so far from the Romanian sound artist. Spanning over 3 years in the making, the release takes you to a transcendental journey through finely crafted, dark ambient soundscapes, mystic drones with a touch of oriental inspired music."This is an incredibly interesting release from ABBILDUNG, utilising a broad, and sometimes brave, use of sounds, field recordings and voices within this genre. This is a release that is pushing at the boundaries of ambient and taking it so much further. The tracks are exquisitely crafted pieces that at times are tinged with fusions of an oriental journey, propelling you through harsh atmospheric re-entry or simply leaving the listener alone to drift in absolute solitude. The opening track drags you in from the very first moments, taking you on a dark journey and eventually pulling you through to the other side. Whether that outcome is one of light or dark only the listener can decide.. $11.00

Abjection Ritual - Futility Rites CD ( Malignant: TumorCD89)
With 2 previously self-released CDrs, Erie, Pennsylvania’s Abjection Ritual grabbed our attention by creating a particularly bleak and virulent strain of death industrial that takes the unbridled, feral violence of American power electronics and combines it with the classic charnel house, necro-atmospherics of vintage Cold Meat Industry (BDN, MZ.412, In Slaughter Natives). Futility Rites is his proper debut, and it fully delivers on the promise and potential of earlier material. From the slow, caustic crawl of “Aversor”, “Entropic Embrace”, or “Tabernacle of Teeth and Tongues”, to the heavily mechanized grind, razor sharp frequencies and lurching physicality of the title track or “Objects of Wrath”, each of the 8 tracks here are impenetrably dark and filled with oppressive dread, culminating in a release that immediately propels Abjection Ritual to the front of the pack when it comes to malevolent, post-apocalyptic electronics. For fans of Steel Hook Prostheses, The Vomit Arsonist, Brighter Death Now, In Slaughter Natives.
In 6 panel digipak designed by Brian Van Der Pol and mastered by J. Stillings, Steel Hook Audio. Lmtd 500 copies. Run time: 49 minutes.. $9.67

Abjection Ritual - Psychiatric Failures CDr ( Self-released: AR02)
The follow-up to the well received self titled Abjection Ritual debut was inspired by mental illness, past and present abuses within institutions, the letters of Antonin Artaud, and the early anti-psychiatry movement. As I alluded to in my review of the first CD, Abjection Ritual is perhaps the definitive new force in American death industrial/power electronics, and the 7 tracks here only solidify that; grim constructions that alternate between being hyper violent and explosive to more bleak arrangements of nauseating electronics and radioactive waste, with a vocal delivery that just ramps things up to impossible levels of intensity. Tightly focused, perfectly executed, and about as good as anything you're bound to hear all year.. $6.66

Aderlating - Gospel of the Burning Idols ( Black Plagve: Infect12)
4th full length disc from this offshoot of Gnaw Their Tongues, finds Mories and Eric Eijspaart exploring further realms of the depraved and sinister; a 7 track descent into a world of wretched decay, nefarious manifestations, and atmospheric decrepitude, where charred frequencies meet slithering, roiling darkness, industrial clutter, demonic vocal incantations, and blurred, abstract layers of nightmarish horror, all periodically propelled forward by an invasion of live, free-form percussion and crashing cymbal resonance. Few artists can deliver a full spectrum of hellish ambience like Mories and Eric, and with Gospel of the Burning Idols, Aderlating comes forth with one of their most focused and complete recordings, capturing the sound closest to a live experience, with little sampling and using only “machines”, synths, vocals, and percussion.. $8.66

Aderlating - Hell Follows CD ( Black Plagve: Infect16)
The 5th full length CD for Aderlating finds the duo of Eric Eijspaart and Maurice De Jong returning to Black Plagve for the first time since 2013’s Gospel of the Burning Idols.
Hell Follows takes a somewhat altered approach as it moves away from the ritualistic horror and smothering claustrophobia of past releases, and into a more spacious realm, with more distinguished sounds and clearer instrumentation. That’s not to say that Hell Follows isn’t steeped in atmosphere and dark energy. The 9 tracks are unpredictable, wildly hallucinatory and beguiling…odes to nightmares and flickering visions of torment and anguish, an alchemy of blackened kosmiche keyboard textures, raspy, foreboding voices, and passages of corrosive rumblings, hellish drift, and sinister percussive clangor.
Mories has stated that Hell Follows was recorded live in the studio with less computer processing, and it shows in the amorphous quality of the tracks; a Coil like sense of psychedelia and surreal wooziness to some, a hopelessly dark and apocalyptic feel to others that adhere more to the traditional Aderlating template. Collectively, it’s a wild and mercurial sonic journey that resides on the peripheral of anything Mories and Eric have done to date, and yet at the same time, makes perfect sense within their discography.. $10.67

Aegri Somnia - Endtime Psalms CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo062)
Aegri somnia returns with his long awaited second album on Cryo Chamber.
The hum of the Endtime Psalms echo through burnt out buildings. Awaiting impending death as the sky grows dark. Black smoke wheezing from charred windows. We we're born from stardust, but are but puppets in a mindless game of DNA manipulation, life.
Deep analogue drones rumble under the heavy boots of the human machine. Aegri Somnia plays the role of field recorder and audio manipulator with surgical precision.. $12.67

Aeldaborn - The Cosmic Trident ( Lichterklang: LK021)
"The Cosmic Trident“ is the second album of AELDABORN, consequently following the path of their debut „Fountain Of Darkened Fires“. Now consisting of Thomas Lückewerth, Philomela, Sepp Funkel, S. Dante and Axel Burgard AELDABORN celebrates old ancient myths by the poignant use of martial influenced Dark Folk and Ritual music which leads the listener to Viking Kings („Hakonarmal“), the finnish Kalevala („Vainamoinen“), the mountain tops of the Hindu goddess Shiva („The Cosmic Trident“), the funeral rites of the tibetian Bön („Mound Of Bones“) or to the hidden doctrine of the Qlipoth („Satariel“). In addition to the diverse vocals of the band guest performances by Frater Eremor (“Im Kraftstrom des Satan-Set“) and Asenath Mason (Foundress of „Temple Of The Ascending Flame“) put even more emphasis on the mythical and spiritual direction of the album. The sound is characterized by guitars, violin and drums in combination with the passionate lyrics, changing between melancholy, heros and aggression. The album will be released with exclusive paintings of the finnish artist Veera Pitkänen in an elaborate digipak and bookle. $7.00

Aeoga - Triangle of Nebula-Devourers & Palace for Vultunales CD ( Aural Hypnox: AHSM08)
After a decade of unavailability we are proud to release ‘Triangle of Nebula-Devourers’ and ‘Palace for Vultunales’ by Aeoga on a CD through our Stellar Mansion series. Both of these were previously released in 2005 simultaneously with the ‘Zenith Beyond the Helix-Locus’ album; ‘ToND’ was limited to 100 CD-r copies and ‘PfV’ came exclusively as a part of ‘ZBtH-L’ deluxe box set that was limited to only 40 copies.'Triangle of Nebula-Devourers' presents three electro-acoustic pieces that will take you through the hazy desert toward the non-spatial zero time. Tempesting, obscure and flowing archaic ambience where meditative rhythms, transcendental resonances and abstract passages blend together – sonic alchemy that will permute the sub-/ non-conscious patterns of the Self. This album is an incomparable outcome in the field of experimental and abstract ambience.
'Palace for Vultunales’ presents two dronumental tracks varying from backwards flowing acoustical drones, eerie sample textures and harmonic sound clouds to archaic rhythm patterns. A voyage through the Coprophagik Cycle into the heart of absolute being - an opus between old school drone ambience and experimental ritual music.

Aere Aeternus - Humanity Needs No Funeral ( Kaosthetik: KSTK006)
Re-stock! "Humanity Needs No Funeral", the first full-length album from Aere Aeternus, is released on the French label Kaosthetik. With a multi-national and eclectic lineup, the band comprises Alex (Macabre Omen, The One, Razor of Occam), Claudio Alcara (Frostmoon Eclipse, Striszek), Cyr (Dark Sanctuary, Elektronic Society) and Radu. Drawing on the wide range and considerable musical experience of its members, Aere Aeternus creates a dark, disturbing atmosphere that probably best fits within the ambient and minimalist genres, and which the band themselves describe as "half misanthropic ritual and half sex ritual." Very obscure and brooding sounds full of spoken incantations, ritual percussion, and just a very evil, disturbing vibe all around.The dominant atmosphere combines a sense of impending insanity with sexual deviancy and a large dollop of occultism, creating a dark and troubling misanthropic sojourn that is relatively unique. The final track is probably the most musical, as it is centred on a guitar arpeggio, but no such concessions to convention are present elsewhere on this deeply troubling disk. The accompanying video of "Invocation" shows a Satanic ritual in all its kitchsy glory. Recommended for those looking for something a darker than the usual entities. .. $5.00

Aghast Manor - Penetrate ( Infinite Fog: IF-33)
Aghast Manor as a whole is a creation of musician, novelist, &actress Andrea Nebel and on this album grand Dark-art master Jouni Havukainen (In Slaughter Natives) joined her!”Penetrate” invites you to a dark and haunting flair of ambient sounds combined with styles of symphonic industrial, dark cabaret and jazz noir. Sinister and peculiar indeed, but undeniably beautiful and alluring.
As Andrea explains: ” Penetrate is in a way for me a journey through the typical clandestine stereotypes of different European countries, like the songs ’Fleur De Marie’ and ’Today Is My Day’ with atmospheres of Paris’ shady cabarets and colourful harlots. Or songs like ’Asylum ’45’ and ’Worship Me’ with images of Dominas, German asylums and wicked wardens, or the mighty ’The Venice Murder’ which is supposed to invoke images of Venice gloom, phantoms and poisoners, or the bizarre song ’Spy On The Wall’... I want the music to be there for everybody who likes to enjoy a little strange and haunting experience...it’s best enjoyed alone at night!”. $10.00

Ain Sopha - Aurora ( Old Europa Café: OECD053)
Re-release of the 1992 CD on Cthuhlu. An uneasy but brave selection of ‘cabaret songs’ that mixed in equal measure the words of the military display. Café society, and the canciones of the itinerant Italian street singer. Jangly, upbeat, downbeat, off key, melodic piano and guiat with Italiano vocals. A very controversial and politically incorrect album (if you speak Italian I suppose), talking about Italy during and after WW2! For those that wonder about Novy Svet’s influences, you need look no further than something like Aurora.. $8.00

Akoustik Timbre Frekuency - Kthonik Korridors CDr ( ATF Produktions: ATF004)
Akoustik Timbre Frekuency utilises a variety of ritual instruments including singing bowls, rain sticks, Tibetan horns, aura chimes, shamanik rattles as well as synthesised sounds to create trance-augmenting background atmospherics for ritual usage. Compositions have been created using field recordings from locations ranging from treetops to sewers, from nature parks to pubs on a Friday night. With Kthonik Korridors, ATF has created an homage to H.P. Lovecraft (in commeration of 73 years since his death), with 6 tracks of cryptic, sepuchral ambience that can used as background atmospherics for Rites dedicated to the Cthulhu mythos. Instrumentation for this recording include singing bowls, flutes, rattles, synth and a large chunk of meatset upon with knives, machetes and a pitchfork. Includes the requisite reverb and heavy echo to great effect, and the result is a very dark, creepy, and haunting recording perhaps remiscent of Profane Grace to some degree, albeit with greater production values.. $5.00

Allerseelen - Rauhe Schale ( Ahnstern: Ahnstern44)
"Rauhe Schale" ('Rough Shell') is the brand new album from Austrian legends Allerseelen, which fascinates musically as well as visually. Everything moves and flows in a field of force between industrial, metal, folklore and pop. Lovers of bands like Einstürzende Neubauten, Laibach or Underworld could also fall in love with Allerseelen. Gerhard Hallstatt sometimes describes his music as Electronic Folklore or Apocalyptic Rock. But basically there is no real description for Allerseelen - all attempts to find an expression for their music may be valid for some time, yet lose their meaning after a couple of months or years. The songs were inspired by various magical mystery tours in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy and Slovenia. Gerhard is assisted here by Dimo Dimov (Svarrogh, Miel Noir, Sturmpercht), Marcel P. (Sagittarius, Halgadom), Meri Tadic (Eluveitie) and Annabel Lee (Blood Axis). 70 mins. of music in a digipak with booklet.. $7.00

A look at the illusory world constructed by the mind and the fact that everything is relative and a matter of perspective. Chimäre is a metaphor for doubt and subsequent questions. No one truth exists.

Anabasis/Gargrim the Liar - Two Worlds 2CD ( Waerloga: Waer016)
Two Worlds is the Waerloga debut of both Anabasis & Gargrim the Liar. Yet it is not right to call this release a split CD as each artist got one CD for their own "world" and release. Both CDs are packed in one Jewel case with great cover/back artwork made by none other than John Howe, famous for his work as the leading artist in Peter Jackson´s Lord of the Rings trilogy and other brilliant illustrations. The music (almost 120 minutes total) of both artists are dark fantasy inspired, cinematic and neoclassical.Inspired by a poem by the English poet Robert Browning, Anabasis' music paint a wonderful story filled with heroism, adventure, darkness and valor. Anabasis is not only inspired by the poem, he also "describe" (in music) personalities and events presented in themes in a Wagnarian way (leit-motives). You will find a hero-theme, traitor theme, stronghold-theme and so forth. They all show up disguised in different tempos and different meters. The music is highly cinematic and instrumental. Gargrim is inspired by Warhammer fantasy roleplay and other roleplaying games. Most of all one specific campaign which deals with a power struggle among four families and an almost Romeo and Juliet sort of love drama as backdrop. Don´t get that story wrong and confused with cheasy romantic crap as this story is filled with mysterious killings, endless debates in the council halls, dark deep intrigues on many levels and all takes place in the upper class among the nobility. The music on this wonderful CD bare hints of such as Ennio Morricone, Hans Zimmer, Klaus Badelt and other Hollywood composers, but with an own style of instrumental stunning dark fantasy music with lot´s of atmosphere and really good melodies. SALE - $7.00 for 2CDs? Are you kidding me? This stuff is pretty legit too, not some plonk.. $7.00

Analfabetism - Av Hjord Är Du Kommen CD ( Malignant: TumorCD90)
As it is with death metal, Swedish industrial is a unique strain with an often defining and noticeable sound, forged in part by the legacy of early Cold Meat Industry, and further fueled by cold winters, alcohol, and mundane factory work. Analfabetism captures that original spirit - a grizzled veteran, known around Malignant for his prior nomenclature, Knös, Frederik Djurfeldt creates back to basics, stripped down, bare bones old school industrial; relentless cold frequencies and sinister atmospheres fleshed out with samples, looping dirge, and pounding machine clangs, and neatly wrapping it in an embrace of distortion and mechanized gloom. It''s a tried and true formula that sadly few explore today, yet here we find Analfabetism taking the torch and leading the charge towards a future that suddenly looks bright, even if it sounds hopelessly bleak and apocalyptic.. $10.66

Analfabetism - Self Titled CDr ( Self-released: Ana01)
Formerly known as Knös, Fredrik changed the name of the project to avoid confusion with another project (assuming with K.N.O., but I could I be wrong). He can call it whatever he wants as far as I'm concerned, as long as he delivers the same post-apocalyptic atmospheres and frigid Scandinavian industrial we've come to expect. 8 tracks here, navigating their way through ominously ambient passages en route to more aggressive terrain, populated by slabs of distortion, factory dirge, and looping rhythms. I really really like this and would have loved to have released it were it not for the schedule currently being so jam packed. Rest assured, Analfabetism will make their way to the Malignant roster eventually.. $11.33

Anarcocks - Hotel Oriente CD ( Old Europa Café: OECD222)
Back in 2011 Massimo Villani and Marco Simonelli were connected by their common friend Lydia Lunch and met in Zürich with the intention of collaborating on a project. Over a sleepless weekend they conceived the tale of longing and desire that is "Hotel Oriente". Marco then wrote the lyrics and Massimo conjured up with Pierce Wyss to create the soundtrack, that was recorded in Zürich and previously only available as a digital download. This CD release is the second installation of the “europArabia” trilogy from Anarcocks that started in 2014 with "Desert Rose" and will see its achievement next year with a yet unnamed third and last chapter. Very cinematic acoustic, classic sounds mixed-up to complex electronics plus the Italian telling voice of Massimo.

Anemone Tube - Golden Temple CD ( Raubbau: Raub039)
The buzz on this one has been building, and praise has been universal. Anemone Tube’s third release of the “Suicide Series“ tetralogy is an immersive industrial music album and the most ambitious and complex work yet, a long-term project of no less than 6 years, pursuing a highly sophisticated approach full of cross-cultural and historical references. Painting a sonic landscape, “Golden Temple” is perfectly real and dreamlike at the same time, endorsing archaic, mythological and worldly ideals alike. Beauty and evil, the profane and chaos, apocalypse and hope – Anemone Tube keeps account and observes the antagonist forces of life.
Composed of raw urban field recordings collected in Japan and China, combined with layers of piercing feedback and sinister hovering synth melodies, “Golden Temple” confronts you with an all-embracing atmosphere of aggrieving darkness and glorious harshness, fathoming the possibilities of the genre. To ensure due impact, it has been sharply engineered to perfection by mastermind James Plotkin.Pursuing. $13.33

Anemone Tube & Post Scriptvm - Litaniæ Mortuorum Discordantes CD ( Epicurean: Cure11)
Under the headline “Litaniæ Mortuorum Discordantes” Anemone Tube and Post Scriptvm present a collaborative album with a truly unique concept: Originally applied to a particular style of ancient ritual music, in the Classical era the term Litaniae Mortuorum Discordantes attained a negative connotation and was used to criticize those compositions – which, instead of instilling listeners with the desired pious euphoria, incriminated them with a sense of dread, existential anxiety, feelings of death and decay. Finding this aesthetic choice to be most appropriate for the present era, the two post-industrial projects attempted to create their own “Discordant Death Litanies” for the XXI century.
The idea is culled from a semi-fictional biography of Johann Sebastian Bach, written by a 19th century Russian author. In the chapter describing Bach‘s childhood and early education, his older brother – who was also his music teacher and mentor – dissuades him from composing those “Litaniæ Mortuorum Discordantes” as they dangerously steer the Christian liturgy into a “wrong” direction of primordial chaos. In reality Bach never dealt with such dark notions, but created the most versatile and accomplished musical glorifications of the Christian god ever composed.
Yet tempted by the imagination of real “Litaniæ Mortuorum Discordantes”, Anemone Tube and Post Scriptvm stage a linear, gradually unfolding “oratorio” which begins with layers of lush brass synths resounding a time and place enveloped in ancient mythical beauty. The pristine serenity, however, slowly deteriorates through the influx of anguish, social decay and profanity. Raw field recordings, throbbing electronics, metallic tremors, distant voices and chants portrait a life of numbness and confusion, where man – tormented by ignorance, ignoble desires and anger – has become a plaything of insane “Weltanschauungen” and the commercialization plague. In a world where spirituality is reduced to rituals of sadness, the prophetic – and confirmed – certitude that the end of civilization is close at hand prevails.. $13.33

Antlers Mulm - Silbergrauer Staub CD ( Wrotycz: WRT021)
The first album ins special art paper package! From FUNPROX: "Not a recent release (October 2003), but one which I listened to quite often recently. The productions of Antlers Mulm and its label Sonderübertragung, both run by Hans Johm, sound and look just a little different. The limited releases, both on vinyl and cd, are always packaged in cardboard boxes, which are functional, yet stylish. The music of Antlers Mulm contains many nostalgic references to older electronic music, without becoming a pure retro act. The music on “Silbergrauer Staub” does not sound very complicated at first. Nevertheless there is a lot of tension in the music and often an otherworldly and melancholic feeling. Pioneers like Kraftwerk come to mind, as well as underground minimal electro from the early 80’s, but there are also clear connections to dark ambient / industrial circles. I have to think of Coil, Column One or Predominance. Despite experimentation, the melodic soundscapes are quite accessible, even meditative at times. Most tracks have an atmospheric electronic sound with clear keyboard melodies, subtle samples and sparse speech vocals, often slightly distorted. Percussion does not play a dominant factor, though there is some ritual, almost martial percussion here and there, like on ‘Gipfelsturm’. In general the music is not particularly dark, there are no deep basses or cliche rumbling machineries. Some tracks sound a bit more threatening though, like ‘c3′. Most of the 15 tracks move forward rather slowly, though a track like ‘Out of line’ has a pumping electronic beat." SONDERÜBERTRAGUNG. $6.00

Apocryphos - The Prisoner's Cinema CD ( Cyclic Law: 73rdCycle)
After the dissolution of Psychomanteum, Apocryphos was slowly formed by now sole member Robert C. Kozletsky and continues further down the pathways charted by Psychomanteum. The Prisoner's Cinema is a duality in concept, exploring two separate paths that intersect each other through out. The first path revolves around sensory deprivation, isolation and the frightening, yet spiritual aspects of these experiences. The second path is that of a personal nature, bearing a literal interpretation of the title "Prisoner's Cinema" where you play the prisoner locked away in the confines of your own conscious mind standing alone against your own darkness. This is the troubled soundtrack to a soul starving for catharsis, a release from the chains that hold us down in this uncompromising world. The Prisoner's Cinema is graced with the signature haunting imagery of Simon Heath (Atrium Carceri) and also features a special guest collaboration by Frederic Arbour (Havan / Visions…) on one track. Psychomanteum may be dead, but out of its ashes, Apocryphos has risen to expand one's soul. Listen and release...

Apocryphos/Kammarheit/Atrium Carceri - Onyx CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo022)
3 veteran producers in the genre, Apocryphos, Kammarheit & Atrium Carceri, collaborate on this behemoth of an album. Each utilizing each others strengths to bring forth a dark and emotional ride through distant memories.
Onyx is a soundscape journey related to the reflection of dispirited memories and obscure sorrows felt by mankind. With the multitude of techniques used by each artist, it also reflects the rich history of the dark ambient genre and how it has progressed through the decades.
The signature analogue darkness of gargantuan caves of Kammarheit is combined with the sacral and emotional layering of Apocryphos and the rhytmical bass throbbing and isolated pianos of Atrium Carceri.
This album was created by cross linking 3 studios in Oregon (US), Pennsylvania (US) and Umeå(Sweden). It took over 3800 lines of studio notes to finalize the album.. $12.67

Apoptose - Ana Liil CD ( Tesco: Tesco094)
Ana Liil doesn't want to be your friend – she lives in an entirely separate world. Maybe at night you see her shape behind a grimy window in the neighbourhood, or you hear her singing from afar. But you will never get closer to her. “I don't know who she is,” Apoptose says. “One day she just emerged. Like a thought that sounds logic in your dreams but completely strange in daylight.” Apoptose’s “ana liil” plays with your expectations. This album spins within close range of those dark ambient realms that Apoptose became known for since the early 2000s. Songs like “meer der ruhe” or “schnee” still bear this signature. But at the same time they show a new quality of songwriting. Both feature the frail singing of a girl who keeps the dusty shadows at bay . On “forget your face”, “adrenalin” or “ich verbrenne” Apoptose replaces the reverb charged tracks by songs full of voices and haunting melodies. But beware: all is not as it seems. The album will be available on CD, vinyl+CD and download. The CD is housed in a stylish spot varnished six-panel cardboard pack including a twelve-pages booklet and a separate CD-sleeve.. $13.00

Apoptose - Nordland ( Tesco: Tesco041)
Time to travel north again: Apoptose's long out of print first album "Nordland" is back - even more beautiful than before. On its release in the year 2000 Nordland instantly became a cult record for lovers of orchestral ritualistic soundsculptures. Like ancient stone circles on barren landscapes the solemn music reminds of an age when the eternal cycle of growth and decay ruled human life. Finally this ambient classic is available on CD again. The album was carefully remastered to ensure that favourite tracks like "Abschied von der Sonne", "Nordlicht" or "Nidstang" sound better than ever. The bonus track "Svartisen" originating from same era as the Nordland recordings enhances the line-up. So even those who know Nordland for ages will discover some new facets of this gem. Additionally the designers revisited the whole artwork and created something completely new to compliment the timeless music. The CD is housed in a multiple-panel fold-out cover featuring a separate cardboard CD-sleeve.
Here's my original catalog description: "A new German project inspired by the ancient order of the megalitic graves. Flowing orchestral movements and somber droning soundscapes with a bleak, windswept feel reminiscent to some degree of Les Joyaux’s work on Les Petits Enfant. Rounded off with some nice ritual percussion. Haunting, introspective work that recalls a forgotten time.".. $13.00

Argentum - Ditirambos al dios de la Guerra CD ( UFA Muzak: UFA65)
The album full of colossal admiration for the Greek pantheon presented by the cult band Argentum. Overwhelming hymns with lyrics in Greek language, infused as components in an alchemic retort, only to make an unforgettable impression. Music is a secret way to Homer's "Iliad", Ovid's "Metamorphoses", to Aeschylus and Hesiod, to the mythological Olympus, the sacred mountain, the place of residence of the gods headed by Zeus. During the Great Dionysias in Athens choirs if singers dressed in goat skins were singing hymns - dithyrambs accompanying dances, and so the album if full of wine and hop spirit. Drunken satyrs with tails and goat legs carry old Silenus on a donkey, a wise teacher, to the sounds of flutes, pan-pipes and timpanis. The Agrentinian project's music opens slowly, moving from majestic hymns to resilient electronic rhythm, from conspiracy to Hercules, to the Orphic spells, to Zeus, from life to death, from pain to ecstasy. The Olympians pass in front of us and glorify their power, interwining Futhark and Ancient Greek, symbols of war and improving the magical experience, animal and divine nature.. $11.00

Arktau Eos - Ai Ma Ra 2CD ( Aural Hypnox: AH11)
Ai Ma Ra is a monumental album containing over 105 minutes of experimental elemental and ambient music, original in the literal sense of the word. More than music, it is 'ethnography of the unknown' in action, providing vistas into rarely glimpsed corners of reality. Created primarily on acoustic instruments, organs and harmonium, carefully mastered on vintage tape, the sound is equally earthy as it is otherworldly – a contradiction in terms maybe, but then Ai Ma Ra is not classified easily in any other respect either. It is a record in which to immerse one’s self over time, containing more than two years' worth of strange experiences and sensations distilled into a curious, potent elixir, the use of which may in its truest sense be determined only by the individual listener. Ai Ma Ra, pressed in 1.000 copies, comes in a sturdy, deep green cardboard box stamped with the mark of Arktau Eos. Contained within is an 8-page booklet bound in tête-bêche format on high quality paper, a small talismanic print, and two CDs.. $17.66

Arktau Eos - Scorpion Milk ( Aural Hypnox: AHSM07)
Scorpion Milkby Arktau Eos, a work that was originally released in June 2006 is re-released through our Stellar Mansion series.'Scorpion Milk' consists of a single album length track, which is best apprehended in a meditative state with minimum outside interference. It is a shadowy companion of the 'Mirrorion' album, the candle-bearer who responds to no call but silence itself. The music can be likened to a dark well, the oily surface of which not only reflects the phantasms of mind recalled through participation in the "Mirrorion" cycle, but is occasionally broken by scorpionic surges of primal Power invigorating the act of contemplation.Performed and mixed live by using mainly obscure electronica on a reel tape, it is the antithesis of the sterile, lifeless sound and attitude of our times; a connoisseur's choice that stands alone despite its undercurrents flowing from the heart of 'Mirrorion'.The album is enclosed inside a newly designed cardboard covers including a 8-panel booklet and a silk-screen printed insert card. Limited to 500 copies.. $13.99

Armon Kuili - S/T CDEP ( Totuuden Sarvi Levyt: Totuu01)
The first release from Totuuden Sarvi Levyt is a piece of Finnish art destined to remain in the minds of those who hear it. The debut mini-album by Armon Kuilu is a funereal musical journey, two long progressive compositions built out mostly of classical piano, strings, orchestral drums, singing, prayers and invocations in male and female voices. More of a gothic work than a total assault on the senses, yet one must remember that the word gothic is often abused in connotation with just a melancholic form of new age entertainment music but here the soundscapes bring to mind images of forlorn cemetaries, initiatory cults, bloodletting, woodlands and altered states of consciousness. At times the melodies of chamber music break out into squeals, groans and crackling which haunt the space and resonate with the Finnish poetry, that most of the time reminds one of a satanic ceremony. Some passages sound familiar to the listeners of European avantgarde and progressive music such as Actus, Art Zoyd and releases from the label Athanor. Post-industrial fans should also listen to this work but remember that this is not your generic so-called occult album with the usual Crowley spoken parts. Instead this is a deeply personal work with challenging classical and sometimes jazz or progressive melodies composed by the master behind the project and performed by real musicians with authentic instruments and also utilizing real actors for the various voices and spoken parts. Believe me, you will hear the difference. The mini-album comes in a black & white sleeve with a full color 8-page art booklet (size 7x7"), built from nature-mystical imagery shot on infrared film. Recommended!!. $4.00

Artefactum - Foxgloves & Bluebells ( Old Europa Café: OECD143)
Being one of the very few representatives of what might be labelled as feminine ambient music, Artefactum remains the embodiment of unique characteristics: deep and warm ambient intertwined with sounds of nature, ritual bells, remote drumming and sensual vocals. In the case of Artefactum you simply can’t mistake the music for any other artist’s work. Merissa d’Erlette’s new opus "Foxgloves & Bluebells" has at last taken its final shape after five long years since the release of "Rosarium Hermeticum" – her last full-length album. The music is richer and more varied than anything else she has ever made – while still within the borders of ambient, the release contains at the same time a collection of beautiful songs inspired by old poetry and mysterious folklore. With wonderful guest appearances from neo-medieval The Soil Bleeds Black, British folk singer Andrew King (Duo Noir/Sol Invictus) and neo- classical Dawn & Dusk Entwined, "Foxgloves & Bluebells" is a must-have release for anyone into esoteric post-industrial music.. $5.00

Artefactum - Rosarium Hermeticum CD ( UR Muzik: UR008)
Proper release of CDr from 2006. Best that I can gather, Artefactum doesn't get the name recognition the project deserves, at least among dark ambient enthusiasts. Maybe it's the misleading color schemes on the covers, or the titles that suggest it might be more goth than ambient. Make no mistake though, this is thoroughly haunting material, reminiscent of Aghast in that it’s somewhat stark and minimalist, but eerie and genuinely atmospheric,albeit slightly more orchestral than that classic CMI project.. $5.00

Asmus Tietchens - Parergon CD ( Dark Vinyl: SA04)
"Parergon" (Greek 'collection of small texts') is the sequel of the idea to continue to recycle recyclings of recyclings. That does not mean remixes or deconstructions but much more genuine compositions derived from already repeatedly recycled structures. In the future the new compositions, too, will be transformed by recycling into totally new music. This approach is in no case hermetic because no circular course happens: There is no way back to the beginning. With digital tools - but w i t h o u t chance operations - one can achieve treatments and processings which lead to a nearly endless multitude of aesthetic relevant compositions derived from once defined basic structures. In this connection 'sampling' is not of importance. - The pieces of "Parergon" do not intend to provoke pictures or moods, but will give the listener simply something to listen to - it is up to him how he handles this offer. In consequece the pieces have no titles. Instead they have index data which point to certain series.
"Parergon" has been composed in dark times, but at the best only the artwork reflects this conditions. The sounds themselves come from the vacuum.
Cold and singular tones and hypnotic ambience for solitary listening excursions and headphone journeys.. $10.67

ASVA & Philippe Petit - Empires Should Burn ( Small Doses: Dose113)
Collaborative project that opens with a sprawling and epic 23 minute piece of resonating drones and distant tonal thrums, with spoken word accompaniment courtesy of Edward Ka-Spel (Legendary Pink Dots). It's 4:30AM when I'm listening to it, and it's the perfect soundtrack for a dark and cold morning. I don't want to drop too obscure of a reference, but for those in the know, the build up and overall feeling and structure is very reminiscent of Contrastate's "Midnight in this Century" . Proceeding tracks are shorter and a bit more abstract, almost vignette like; ominous and suspenseful piano "tinklings" with drones and quiet textures and harmonies, and also feature vocal contributions from Jarboe (Swans), and Bryan Lewis Saunders. Didn't know what to expect with this one, but the results are surprisingly good. $11.00

Atomine Elektrine - Archimetrical Universe ( Eternal Pride: EPP015)
Re-issue/remixed version of 1996's Archimetrical Universe (Yantra Atmopheres) + bonus tracks from extra limited CDr boxed version of the album Nebulous. Archimetrical Universe showcases Peter Andersson (Raison d'Etre, Stratvm Terror) dissection of the sky, a Caesarean section that births massive, geometrically perfect sonic diversions, all spheres and angles, burnished metal dreams and pristine sonic caresses that reconfigure sound into smooth surfaces. To counterbalance the exactness of the sonic development, light rhythms emerge, huge slabs of disrupting tones puncture, the scattered remnants of all of Peter’s projects utilized in the creation of the music here. Everything seems to be in perpetual motion, evolving, revolving, reinvented at the mercy of Peter’s deft hands and devious whim. The clarity of production and meticulous restructuring of the known (space, stars, planets) with the unknown (space...stars...planets...) only heightens the journey upon which he guides us, an alluring venture into the cavernous realm of space...but not a space most of us would imagine. Whether he is sonically scrubbing the architecture, or just mesmerizing us with another sound sculpture at the edge of forever, Archimetrical Universe is, quite possibly, one of Peter’s finest releases, which says a lot because his sonic portfolio runneth over with intoxicating, mind-altering sound manipulations that inspire one’s imagination with conflicting emotional responses (sorrow, desolation, awe, wonder) at all times.. $11.00

Atomine Elektrine - Laniakea CD ( Wrotycz: WRTZ023)
The word Laniakea means the immeasurable heaven: deep, spacious, dark and ostensibly emtpy but still full of energy, matter, structures and bright objects. The same words can be said about the sound on the new studio album by Atomine Elektrine. Further on, the 'Laniakea' album is also characterized by molecular reactions, eroding particles, nuclear fractals, diffused lightwaves and multiversed orbits. Old fashioned modular analogue electronic synthesis combined with modern digital processing is the gravitational focal point on 'Laniakea'. The tracks have mainly sequencer driven narratives with ambient layers of both classic retro styled elements and advanced processed novel sounds.
The origin of the 'Laniakea' album is based on two fundamental occurrences: The definition of the galaxy supercluster Laniakea in 2014 and the decease of the Tangerine Dream mastermind Edgar Froese in 2015. 'Laniakea' is simply a homage to the vastness of space and a eulogy to the kosmische musik that appeared in the early 1970's.
Three bonus tracks (sketches) are included on the CD version (duration 76 minutes) compared to the digital download album (duration 61 minutes). Comes in a 6-panel digipak sleeve with original art by Hypsis (hypsis.net).. $12.00

Atomine Elektrine - Nebulous- Extended Edition 2CD ( Old Europa Café: OECD217)
Peter Andersson brings Atomine Elektrine to an utterly refined and perfectionist sphere. Nebulous leaves all physical boundaries behind and takes you on a trip through endless space towards unknown deep corners of the cosmos. The sound is widening every moment and the walls of your room seem to disappear. Multi dimensional layers of sound makes this record into a cosmic outburst. A truly out-of-body, deeply layered and dynamic cosmic experience in form of a masterful ambience filled with energy outbursts, synthetic movements, illuminating pulses and algorithmical rhythms. An aural projection for a detailed exploration of nebulas, black holes, exploding stars and unknown deep corners of the cosmos.
Very much influenced by the electronic side of the kraut scene and with the ability of imposing his very own classic trademark, Andersson sets a new stone and makes ‘Nebulous’, composed in 2005, one of the greatest albums related to this genre since the early 70’s. Peter allowing the ever evolving music to take shape slowly and form amidst the ever changing facades he creates. Truly an amazing achievement.
Originally released in 2007 ‘Nebulous’ is now presented in an expanded version with compilation tracks, earlier bonus material, previously unreleased stuff and also a complete live set earlier only released as a digital album with the title ‘Space is an Illusion – Live in Vilnius’.
Presented in a phantom styled 6-panel digipak based on space friendly original art by Hypsis.. $15.33
