The Rita - Toe Cleavage 7xCassette Wooden Box Set ( Urashima: URA 030_036)
With his flagship project, The Rita, Sam McKinlay has, for nearly two decades, explored and distilled into sound various permutations of fetish and vice. He is recognized as the creator of Wall Noise (or Harsh Noise Walls/HNW), but that sound — massive and rich textural layers of relentless, monolithic fields of distortion — was nothing new, in and of itself. It was McKinlay's conceptual intent and the singular intensity of his focus that established it as something novel and profound. One recognizes in McKinlay's unwavering approach to his body of work the obsessiveness of the fetishist. McKinlay's compulsive reverence for noise — for the unyielding, deliberate weight of Wall Noise — is a fetish of sound. There is an aesthetic rigor often associated with the fetishization of form or object. Seen through the eyes of the most focused and obsessed, even sordid and sexual fixations often manifest in a manner that is highly refined, sculpted, concentrated, and even artistic. The line distinguishing the artist from the fetishist is always blurry and often non-existent.Though his musical approach has remained more or less consistent, the subject matter inspiring McKinlay's work has periodically shifted through the years, mapping out the constellation of non-musical obsessions that occupy his mind: sharks, drag racing, Giallo cinema, skateboarding, and snorkeling, to name just a few. Frequently, McKinlay utilizes field recordings and other sounds sourced from the objects of interest before encrypting them in an opaque shell of noise. Listening to McKinlay's recordings, it's often difficult to determine whether one actually hears the sounds of the source material or if the power of suggestion is so strong in McKinlay's presentation that the listener extracts phantom sounds from the chaotic rumble.In recent years, McKinlay has increasingly focused on the female form, particularly the modes of body augmentation that define classical femininity, such as make up, nylon stockings, etc. The progression of this focus culminated — perhaps inevitably — with the most archetypal projection of femininity in Western Culture: the ballerina, her feet, and her pointe shoes. The foot of a woman has long been identified as the most common source of unusual sexual preoccupation. It is a part of the body that is frequently utilized and easily damaged. In its immaculate form, it is rare and precious. The foot is the terminal point of the body, the most distant corporal destination from the seat of consciousness. McKinlay's music might be viewed in similar terms. HNW is arguably the terminal point of music itself, beyond which it's impossible to achieve greater or more effective minimalism and abstraction. It is a pure, visceral sound, untethered from intellectual and emotional composition.Toe Cleavage is the most comprehensive expression of McKinlay's recent endeavors. For the uninitiated, the term “toe cleavage” refers to the display of the upper portions of toes in low cut shoes — an essential detail for many shoe designers and an aptly selected title for this collection. Across the seven tapes in this set, McKinlay, through his music, dissects, indulges, illustrates, and worships the feminine foot. To that end, McKinlay worked with Los Angeles based visual artist Olivia Burr and recording artist Kristin Hayter (Lingua Ignota). In addition to photographic contributions, Burr and Hayter provided much of the source material for McKinlay including: dance studio floor recordings; contact mic'd ballet shoes; and the repeated unboxing, unwrapping, trying on, walking in, and re-boxing of various designer shoes (Valentino, Miu Miu, etc.). Adding depth to the overall experience, McKinlay interspersed interludes throughout the recordings featuring audio samples derived from discussions and tutorials about pointe shoes, toe cleavage, and various designer ballet flat and stiletto reviews. This set of recordings is arguably McKinlay's most focused and obsessive effort to date and perfectly embodies the cultivated stylistic traits that have defined his work through the years.. $80.00

Last Dominion Lost - Snowdrops From A Curate's Garden CD ( Epicurean: Cure8CD)
CD version of an LP released back in 2015. "Snowdrops from a Curate's Garden” is a 2011 live recording of industrial veterans Last Dominion Lost with all exclusive, unreleased tracks. Active since 1992, Last Dominion Lost feature Jon Evans, John Murphy (Shining Vril, Krank, Ex-SPK/Whitehouse/Current 93) and Julian Percy. Through their pedigree, Last Dominion Lost are considered to justifiably carry the legacy of the legend that is SPK - and that’s also by their sound, as they stand for an undiluted brand of industrial music, combining shuddering analogue sounds, clanging metal rhythms and feedback with ritual percussion & chants. On “Snowdrops from a Curate's Garden” the main focus lies on the hypnotic, ritual and mental aspects of music, with an omnipresent metallic percussive backbone. It comes as no surprise to find the group reveling in dark subject matter like psychopathology, debasement and religious deviation, to which they manage to deliver an authentic soundtrack.
This live album has been recorded at Kalyug Festival, Berlin in 2011 and is perfectly mastered by James Plotkin, providing the album a sharp, forceful & modern sound. Thus “Snowdrops from a Curate's Garden” can be considered the missing link between the grainy, demo-type 1990s recordings that became “The Tyranny of Distance” (Tesco, 2004) and the enthusiastically received “Towers Of Silence” album (The Epicurean / silken tofu, 2014), which displayed a very contemporary, indicatory approach at that classic industrial sound.. $13.77

Raison d'Etre/Troum - Xibipiio. In and Out of Experience CD ( Transgredient: Tr-12)
Second part of the collaboration, this time performed, processed and mixed by Troum.
Based on a notion of the fascinating Amazonian Piraha tribe, this is an excursion into nine different micro-worlds of perception and consciousness. Music that reaches for the eternal, but it only exists in the very moment;Troum navigate through cavernous, subterranean spaces where cyclical sounds reverberate towards impressive crescendos of icy noise, luminous drones and dramatic, guitar-driven ghostly melodies. Their truly unique gorgeous soundscapes shine in a perfect symbiotic movement with the Swedish dark ambient maestro Peter Andersson. Engulfed in a hauntingly beautiful kaleidoscope of grey-ish melancholia, raison d’être comfortably walks deeply into Troum’s vast territory, delivering his very own trademark of eerie tones, ominous sacral ambience and crystal clear constructions.
Airy lush enigmatic atmospheres live together with dark breathing, reverberant transformative drones. Rich and gorgeously layered. $11.67

Tome of the Unreplenished - Cosmoprism: The Theurgy - Act I LP ( Order of Theta: Theta005)
Vinyl issue of Tome of the Unreplenished's latest offering, previously released on CD by I,Voidhanger Records, and featuring esteemed members of Spectral Lore, and Necrosadist.
An exercise in audial dissonance, TotU's 6-track EP seeks to portray in no uncertain terms what some might consider a mind-bending revelation of cosmic proportions. It has been variously described as "a dive into the depths of insanity" (Metal Invader), "raw, primeval, and degenerative"(Metal Recussants)and "terrifying music for terrifying times" (Invisible Oranges), and is an expression of pure disdain and nihilism - blackened noise terror supreme, with smeared textures and ritualistic chaos, where any semblance of structure and melody to arise gets swallowed by chthonic howls and writhing masses of inharmonious atmospheres. Highly recommended fans of Gnaw Their Tongues, Black Earth, and the like.
Comes on black 12"/33RPM vinyl with fold-out covers bearingtheexceptional artwork of Alex Dictator featured on the original CDversion by I, Voidhanger.. $16.50

Various Artists - Drone-Mind//Mind-Drone Vol. 5 LP ( Drone: Mind05)
Four "Drones" on one record! Volume Five features:
GYDJA: (New Zealand) Enchanting female drone esoterica by an artist who is also known through her stunning artworks for COLD SPRING and other labels. Through magnetic winds and metallic clouds the long track "Gjallarbru" creates a wonderful secretful and sensitive atmosphere; very lonely and frosty, like a cold and clear consciousness released on a high mountain, on top of the world...
CLADE, (Scotland / USA) Named after a notion taken from biology science (=Monophylum), this duo is based in Scotland and USA, alluring with very focused minimal drones on so far four releases. The two tracks presented here stand out with their use of somehow refractional, fibrous sounds, placed on monotonus drones with a very sedative and insistent effect...
MONOCUBE: (Ukraine) This "ethereal drone" discovery from Ukraine moves musically through endless spaces, creating choral-like aural clouds and strange melodies => self-supporting drones with an incredible width, when even the smallest particles of concrete microsound encountering are exciting, entering into a heavenly "song of the sirens" choir..
YRSEL : (France) Another bi-national project is this French-Swedish collaboration of JULIEN LOUVET (2:13 PM, etc.) and C-J LARSGÅRDEN (ONDO),who released three albums so far. Their track "Krstnhmnbrtncrt" consists of very heavy, swallowing drones with atonal elements coming to the surface, diffus and poisonous but also lulling you into a deep (dead) sleep., slowly drowning in dense humming waves of cryptic drones...
SOLID SILVER COLOURED VINYL, graphic design by ABBY HELASDOTTIR, using two paintings by British painter PETE GREENING (www.redbubble.com/people/petegreening); limited ed. of 400 copies. $15.00

New Arrivals for the Week of October 22 2017

Scanner - The Great Crater CD ( Glacial Movements: GM030)
Over the last twenty give years Robin Rimbaud – Scanner has traversed the experimental terrain between sound, space and image, connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres – a partial list would include sound design, film scores, computer music, avant garde, contemporary composition, large-scale multimedia performances, product design, architecture, fashion design, rock music and jazz.With a catalogue busy with commissions, soundtracks and studio releases it’s extremely rare to find a new studio recording, so The Great Crater stands out by measure of this. Invited by the label Glacial Movements to create a new album he focused on the tale of strange circles appearing in Antarctica. Flying overhead in 2014 a group of scientists spotted a circular formation of 2km diameter. For a time it was thought that it could be the scar left by a crashing meteorite but in fact it was quite another story. Investigating the circle on foot in January 2016 scientists found a 3metre deep depression, with vertical well-like shafts in the middle. Drilling into the ice they found multiple lakes beneath the surface, as part of a ‘hot spot’ or melting ice sheet. There is growing concern that it could lead to further disintegration. The album explores an immersive, fragile and moving exploration of themes inspired by this simple tale. At moments the ice moves and a sonic scar if formed, at others the chill wind blows across the exposed water. The Great Crater offers up the voice of a unique composer in an ever unsettled global landscape.. $13.99

Sum of R - Orga CD ( Cyclic Law: 97thCycle)
Switzerland’s Sum Of R led by Reto Mäder (RM74) and accompanied by Fabio Costa create slow moving instrumental sonics with a sensibility for hypnotic and complex song structures. “Orga” is an immersive voyage into a shapeshifting mist of raw-boned melodies and repetitive mantras. The album is a hybrid of ritual drums and eerie percussion, atmospheric analog electronics and epic drones forming a drifting orchestral wall of sound. Darkness, light and its reflections is what emerges from this mysterious aural mist. Cover photography by Milena Kancheva.
CD Edition of 1000 copies (Co-released with Czar Of Revelations). 11 Tracks. Running Time 58:23. $13.50

Sky Burial - Chapel Image CD ( Wrotycz: WRT028)
Firmly rooted in the kosmische ethos, 'Chapel Image' is a constantly shifting journey through the nebulous depths of drone and dark ambience with full-immersion being just held at bay by the uneasy dichotomy of low and high frequencies and punctuation of rhythmic and industrial elements. You can mention haunting or ethereal but this doesn't serve to define the full range or feel of the entire piece. The mood changes throughout shifting from beautiful bell tones and diving into industrial dirges. Sky Burial’s 14th full-length recording features an epic single track (45 minutes). Ltd x 300 copies in a digipak.. $11.66

Wet Nurse./Ten Thousand Miles of Arteries - Split CD ( Malignant: TumorCD108)
Split release featuring the damaged, heavy electronics of Canada’s Wet Nurse. teamed up with the obsidian atmospherics of Idaho’s Ten Thousand Miles of Arteries, two acts who take different approaches but are bound by sharing a similar proclivity for making polluted and deranged soundscapes.
Wet Nurse opens things up with “Vow of Sickness (A Prayer), a barrage of jammed frequencies and lurching, corrosive synth waves with a fearsome and highly agonizing vocal presence that sets the tone for the proceeding two tracks. For fans of IRM, early Haus Arafna, and STROM.ec, Wet Nurse. create a disorienting, visceral sound that melds structure with chaos, and ripples with angst, tension and intensity.
Ten Thousand Miles of Arteries follows with 4 tracks of soul blackening, brooding arrangements, teeming with malevolent, noir-ish ambience and corrosive drones, sprinkled with darkened melodies and structure, and propelled forth by percussion and vocals that cut through a haze of reverb and distortion. It’s a deftly crafted, emotionally harrowing and bleak listen, ever so vaguely reminiscent of early Navicon Torture Technologies even while coming off as wholly unique.
In 6 panel digipak, designed by Noah Lane Coleman.. $10.00

Alphaxone & Dronny Darko - Foresaken CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo078)
Alphaxone (Iran) and Dronny Darko (Ukraine) join forces on this mysterious album.
The fog hangs heavy over the emptied town as you make your way down the crest overlooking the ocean. The streets lie silent but for the subtle click of a stoplight juggling colors. Your hand disappears into the thick fog here and the smell of sulfur from the nearby factory feeds your head. Something about this place feels wrong.
Damp thuds spins you around towards the misty outskirts of the beach town. A white horse disappears into the hills and behind it a trail of other animals flee after it. And then it booms, the sound of the fog horn rolls in from the black ocean and echoes off the buildings, the stoplight sways. Silence afterwards, ear shattering. The old man was right, they're coming for us!
Alphaxone's smooth pads and deep bass meets Dronny Darko's long form drone and ethereal reverbs in this trip into the fog. For lovers of evolving drone soundscapes.. $12.50

Atrium Carceri & Cities Last Broadcast - Black Corner Den CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo075)
The two bearded Swedes join forces on this collaborative album. Black Corner Den is the result of long winter studio sessions separated by the atlantic ocean but made possible by the internet. Lonely moments in the company of the night lamp, overlooking the messy pile of tape loops while the machines hummed and the piano played until the morning.
Exploring the opium dens at the end of the 19th century this album takes you deep into the soothing dreams of dead poets.
"The streets lay silent as the floor creeks under your bare feet. The old loft lit by a wax candle, it's light dancing over your oak desk. You grab the vial of black ink and the leather bound book as you scurry out the door into the humid night. You pass trails of fire as the lamplighter tends to the myriad lanterns adorning the bridge. A left turn leads you down a set of stone stairs where the satin clad lounge welcomes you in.
Sweet smoke lingers in here where gentlemen gather to dream about the black sea. Your booth at the far end stands prepared. A pipe, tinderbox and purple pillow for a tired head. You have a friend tonight and it calls itself the Black Corner Den."
Pär Boström’s dreamlike soundscapes combines with the careful melodies and elegant structures of Simon Heath. The perfect soundtrack for decadent nights or introverted reading sessions, preferably combined.. $12.50

Trinity is a touching, personal and enlightening album from Maximillian Olivier. In a genre where most keep their personal life to themselves, Maximillian opens his heart for all to see.
"This is my catharsis. The many stages of grief and the acceptance of loss, deeply personal, unforgiving, cold and painful. This is the story of the greatest loss I have suffered, the death of my mother. This marks the end of a chapter and the closure I was desperately seeking."
Blending atmospheric sound layering with a harmonic palette it drifts between dark and light. Walls of sound collide with echoing strums, drones wash over endless shores.

Genevieve Pasquier - Louche Effect CD ( Ant-Zen: Act361)
The eagerly awaited fourth full length album by the German noise chanteuse Geneviéve Pasquier - an imaginary arena where avant-garde, pop and industrial ingredients intermix in the most peculiar way like a milky oil-in-water emulsion. The thirteen atmospheric, captivating compositions build the foundation for easily understood and utterly incomprehensible thematic symbolism between bleak shadows ('Apesanteur', 'Dirty Blue') and enjoyable brightness ('Gin Tonic').
'Louche Effect' digs different stylistic gardens and shows the eccentric femme fatale at ease with a wide spectrum of sounds and subjects. It's sonic span ranges from highly dosed dark electro avant-pop with hooked new romantic melody lines and primordial neo-noir post industrial dreamscapes to eerily haunting chansons with deep ethereal lounge and downtempo elements. Geneviéve's fragile, persuasive and sometimes highly modulated voice is carried by a wealth of electronic spheres stabilized with most different structures and dubious shady beats.
This album significantly shows Geneviéve Pasquier's evolution in composition, interpretation and sound mastering. an intriguing, elegant and seducing sonic wallpaper, fluctuating from tender-hearted noblesse to adroit virtuosity and speaking to listeners' feelings between positive affirmation and dark layers of melancholy.. $13.33

Hecq - Chansons de Geste CD ( Hymen: ¥850)
With 'Chansons de Geste' Hecq presents a very personal release, conceived as a memorial and dedication to bygone events and individuals. The basic source for the eleven haunting tracks were original tape recordings Hecq and his family members made decades ago for private use, ranging from piano etudes to classical works by composers like J.S. Bach and Johannes Brahms. It was hecq's intention to restore, to revive and to re-arrange these basic sources for the existing release in a condensed and unusual way. Each tape was digitized to hard disc, loops and patches were extracted from this sound pool, and the collection was recorded on a reel-to-reel tape recorder. The tapes were taken and played back inside a church where the natural reverb of the location was added and used as the master recording.
Musically, 'Chansons de Geste' is a captivating assemblage of mesmerizing ambient works where the natural hissing from the ancient tape recordings interpolate with orchestral classical textures and slight electronic manipulations. The hypnotic loops and dots transfer an atmosphere of grandeur and melancholia to those who are aligned to the album's concept as well as to the unprejudiced listener.. $13.50

Khost - Governance CD ( Cold Spring: CSR237CD)
“Governance” continues KHOST‘s immersion in themes of detachment and dissonance, and ruminates upon the exertion of wills that are not your own, and upon the ways to detect and trace the outlines of the presence(s) that may exert these daily wills upon you, day by day. It was written over the course of the 2016/17 Winter, during times of unease and sickness for the band, including one near-death experience. The resulting album is a hinterland of low resolution transmissions interspersed with broad concrete columns of distortion that loom suddenly from the dim landscape. Governance is like driving at night with your spirituality asleep at the wheel.
With demoralizing vocal terror, hypnotic nightmarescapes, frost-encrusted tones, and horrifying rhythms, KHOST’s Governance devastates the listener with nearly fifty minutes of entrancing yet hazardous tectonic doom-laced revulsion. Features guest appearances from Eugene Robinson (OXBOW), and Jo Quail, and includes a remix of the track ‘Coven’ by Tel Aviv artist Adrian Stainburner.. $12.50

Promethean picks up years after the event of The Architects destructive era of eradication, as well as the years of darkness and reflection within the Remnants album.

The album takes him, and the listener, through a new world, a reshaped world, with new eyes to see what remains, what was, what will be. Until he reaches his final destination, his final transformation, the point in time to change his path forever.

Somatic Responses - Pattern Seeking CD ( Ant-Zen: ¥852)
Since their foundation in 1995 Somatic Responses are an open-minded project concerning the vast array of contemporary electronic music - 'complex dislocated & broken beats, distorted intelligent constructions, fascinating sonic structures, force and sweetness intertwined' is the description the brothers John and Paul Healy made to define their sound, and this description is still valid.
Although a unique SR style is always visible, there never was any reserve involving various influences in their work. This stylistic care free attitude is an important element of the 'Pattern Seeking' release where the Healy brothers include many sonic directions from lush ambient to pounding techno, catchy electro and abstract breaks into one diversified and enthralling album - a coexistence of syncopated harshness and enigmatic ambience.
The main basis for the sound sources on the twelve tracks is a return to tactile methods, generally meaning the use of outboard synths and modular gear which always is a big difference compared to computer-based production. However 'Pattern Seeking' is not a pure 'analogue artifact', as a computer was still used for beats, processing and sequencing. By mixing both types of technology SR. are able to create an all round diverse sound amalgamation.
This album can be seen as a transboundary statement against self-made and unnecessary borders - passing these is unmistakably possible, as somatic responses perfectly illustrate.. $13.33

Tracing its legacy to the glory days of CMI, with stylistic nods to Megaptera and Archon Satani, Analfabetism create a particularly atmospheric style of death industrial, where damaged circuitry, crackling transmissions, and fatiguing metal clangs reverberate above gloomy synth bed ambience and soundscapes littered with rusted steel and broken glass. These are the sounds that speak of urban desolation, decaying factories and disenfranchisement, forged and crafted by a skilled tactician. In 6 panel digipak, designed by NTF Design.. $10.00

Iurta - Notes Towards a Mental Breakdown CD ( Cyclic Law: 96thCycle)
Joint project of Portuguese J. A. (Wolfskin, Karnnos) and A. Coelho (Sektor 304). IURTA is a reflection upon the modern dystopia. Inspired by the works of J. G. Ballard and A. Tarkovski, IURTA’s first full length album deals with the fragmentation of identity, of a mind forged by short-circuited information processes. It is a guided descent into an abstracted insanity, a sonic diary of the verge of mental breakdown through soundscapes built upon cascading drones, harsh textures and minimal sonic oscillations. Neural dark ambient, at times punctuated by a cinematic tone exploring the limits of an inner space.Edition of 500 copies in a 4-panel matte laminated Digipak. 9 Tracks. Running Time 66:03. $13.50

Death Squad - Theological Genocide 2LP ( Hospital Productions: HOS497)
More than simply a band or solo project, Death Squad combined a highly complex assemblage of writings and visuals with performances full of psychological and physical confrontations never before seen and never since replicated on American shores. Death Squad differentiated themselves by bringing their multimedia existentialism to the flesh across several infamous tours, which are partially memorialized on blood flecked flyers and pamphlets, a staple of Death Squad live. originally released in 1998, Theological Genocide culminated in the ‘Self Annihilation’ tour across North America. Death Squad's level of dedication was rarely matched at the time, and their fearless events and sheer level of touring led to years of discussion and debate. On gatefold vinyl for the first time.

Grey Wolves - Catholic Priests Fuck Children CD ( Hospital Productions: HOS499)
Originally released by Praxis Dr. Bearmann, finally re-issued on CD by Hospital Productions. Housed in a slipcase CD sheath with audio taken from the masters and original industrial punk artwork faithfully restored. A controversial and timeless classic of ultimate cynical power electronics. A biting rebuke of hypocrisy and a manifestation of the cultural terror network. An album before it’s time shows The Grey Wolves subtle and caustic combinations of power drones, eerie prayer-like loops, sub bass rhythms, electronic noise that support a voice of total condemnation. What many have tried to imitate for years and never even came close. Impossible to top this group’s visual and sonic ‘artwar’. We owe them a debt of papal gold for what many would argue is their definitive album.. $12.99

Orphx - 01/02 2CD ( Hospital Productions: HOS478)
There are less than a handful of bands that can honestly say they were equally involved in the early 90’s noise scene, the mid 2000’s dark ambient scene, and what simultaneously emerged as the power noise movement in Europe. Orphx is one of these pioneers and have gracefully interwoven their tortured electronic architecture among the various subcultures of fringe electronics, while seamlessly continuing on to remain a vital part of the contemporary wave of industrial techno hysteria.
Here we have Orphx 01/02, the double CD counterpart to the noble Mannequin 2xLP vinyl release: Archive 1993/1994.
Edition of 300. Design by Juan Mendez. Further notes on what is included:

Recorded, mixed, and mastered September to November 1993 at The Pit in Dundas, Canada. All tracks by Rich Oddie (synthesizers, metal percussion, voice), Christina Sealey (reel to reel tape machines), and Aron West (synthesizers, sequencing, metal percussion).

United Front - By All Means II (The Fall of Church and State) CD ( Malignant: TumorCD121)
Previously known as U-731, Gordon Lazarus’ project returns to the Malignant roster, now as a duo and rebranded as United Front. The same incendiary and antagonistic principles apply as before, only heightened and intensified with By All Means II (The Fall of Church and State), which burns with fervency and scalding anger, painting a picture of a country rife with corruption and spiraling towards war and strife. Even as it’s primarily centered around US policy, this has a more distinctly European feel than before, channeling mid-late 90’s German acts with its singular frequency throbs, samples, hostile vocals, and ominously atmospheric washes of toxic electronics. Released as a joint experience between Oppressive Resistance Recordings and Malignant, By All Means II is a dire proclamation and should serve as a wake up call to those previously content to sit by the wayside.

Damien Dubrovnik - Great Many Arrows LP ( Posh Isolation: Posh200)
Great Many Arrows' is the 6th studio album from Damien Dubrovnik, the Danish duo of Loke Rahbek and Christian Stadsgaard. It is also the 200th release on their Posh Isolation label, marking 8 years for both the label and project. The label's inception came with Damien Dubrovnik's debut album, and since then the two have been inseparable. Without Damien Dubrovnik there would most likely have been no Posh Isolation, and vice versa.
'Great Many Arrows' is undoubtedly a high point in the varied discographies of both Rahbek and Stadsgaard. It is the most realized Damien Dubrovnik recording to date, and a standout in Posh Isolation's troves.
As a record, 'Great Many Arrows' manages to translate the intensity of the duo's often unrestrained live shows in to carefully crafted studio productions. Unlike the pair's earlier and largely electronic recordings, the compositions on 'Great Many Arrows' set organs, cellos, violas, wind and other acoustic instruments against the backdrop of an electronic landscape.
The new toolset is as apparent on the surface as it is in the enclosed detail, taking the project further from its noise roots than it has ever been. This is not to say that Rahbek and Stadsgaard have traded ferocity for formal constraint. It is rather the opposite. While 'Great Many Arrows' is certainly the pair's most 'musical' work to date, its veneer of accessibility might also make it their most terrifying.
The strength of the recording lies here in the interaction between the melodic, acoustic instrumentation and the bulldozing electronics. Moments of beauty and light are transfigured into utter chaos and rage, the mesmerising change an expression of the equal and opposite form's natural sway as it beckons and slips between its own passing.
'Great Many Arrows' takes its name from a historic archery competition in Kyoto, Japan, in which archers would shoot as many arrows as possible for a 24 hour period.. $21.00

Throbbing analog electronics, slowly swallowing droning textures and sinuous rhythms are accompanied with eternal, eerie melodies - all reeking of the primordial pleasures.

Mania - Foul Inside 3inch CD ( Freak Animal: FreakCD92)
Mania has had several releases on Freak Animal. While one can always conclude that each of the releases has been different, they have the same overall sound palette. Brute electronics, feedback, metal junk, scarcely used vocals. Hardly power electronics, but also not material what would file under standard noise. Mania has such a recognizable sound. For example, listening to a compilation that is full of unknown and anonymous noise, his material always stands out clearly as Mania. This type of personality is rare in genre of noise. “Foul Inside” continues his work flawlessly: It is most definitely Mania, but slightly more abstract and slower moving perhaps? To fully analyze what precisely makes it different from all things in past, is hard, but one can clearly feel it instantly in first listening.
When asking Mania himself, his approach was very down to earth: “I had three unreleased tracks plus a new piece I like.” Benefits of the format was simply that “The 4 tracks fit the length well.” Tracks are presented in one solid 20 minute piece, without indexing or giving specific details, capturing similar feel as Mania tapes have had. $8.99

Kazumoto Endo - Live at Sendai Contemporary Museum singled sided LP ( Audio Dissection: AD16)
One-of-a-kind 12" vinyl record, a testament of a glorious Endo-san performance held in 1999 at the Sendai Contemporary Museum, Sendai (Japan). In the same year the CD "While You Were Out" was released, a milestone which set highest quality harsh noise on a whole new level and that still today, almost 20 years later, it is regarded as a pinnacle of the genre.

A delightful mangle to the fanatic's earholes with non-stop assault of metal scrap feedbacks and powerful, crushing walls of distortions. Thankfully to the excellent quality of this recording an abundance of sonic details can be fully appreciated, as well as the explosive live energy and physical feeling deeply experienced.. $21.00

Eraldo Bernocchi & Netherworld - Himuro CD ( Glacial Movements: Iceberg3)
"Himuro” is the debut album of ambient duo Eraldo Bernocchi/Netherworld. Composed and produced in two years of exchanging material and sound inputs coming both from electronic treated guitars and organic sources. The album lies its foundation on ambient, dub, space and distance.“Himuro" was an "ice cellar", a "'cold room" during the Edo period in Japan. The Kanazawa castle had one and after, during the Meiji period, these rooms were part of palaces. Often used for storing snow and keeping it during summer they had medical, food or ceremonial importance. During summer snow or ice kept in the himuro were sometimes sent from one castle to the other travelling as far as 500 km, relocating the "coldness". For months Netherworld supplied Bernocchi with a vast array of soundscapes and textures, an endless stream of feelings and emotions that the latter used to create the foundations of the album tracks on which constructed guitar scapes (often not recognisable), bass lines, harmonies and grooves. After month of collecting and creating sound inputs, Bernocchi started to carefully assemble what we now can listen on Himuro. A velvety sound creation constantly balancing between a rhythm approach and pure drifting scapes.. $12.77

Kazeria - Nihilist Militant CD ( Twilight Recordings: TWI.150)
With this new album, Kazeria gathers a retrospective and very personal material. All tracks (or "explorations") are unedited and were recorded between 2003-2007, earlier in the formation of the project and during “a troubled personal time; one of militant nihilism” according to [S] own words. Neither hi-tech nor hi-fi were used in here.
Back at that time [S] employed worn and minimal gear, using primitive recording techniquies (hand-manipulation, mostly) in order to create "old school" and minimalistic industrial, black / dark ambient and noise but including many elements that can be recognized on Kazeria´s later works.. $11.33

VelgeNaturlig - Opalescent Pust CD ( Winter-Light: WIN008)
VelgeNaturlig is no stranger to Winter-Light, having appeared on the recent DCD compilation "...That First Season", with his beautiful track 'Golden'. 'Opalescent Pust' has an entirely different feeling altogether, one of constant motion, one of change. 'Opalescent Pust'; the breath opal, the colour of pearl, the purest form of breath. A cleansing process, that of a purifying experience. Purity.
From the opening moments of the first track 'Onset', you know you are entering a world that is both familiar to you, but also somewhat alien at the same time. It's an inward journey that you have begun; a travel within yourself that you should feel comfortable with as it's you. But the dark tones and underlying menace of the music let you know that, in no uncertain terms, before you can reach that light, that purity, you must first traverse the dark paths of your own mind and wrestle with whatever it is you find lurking there. And so the tone is set.
Tracks such as 'Opal' push you further into the blackness where, lying there in state, you can hear the electrical impulses of your own thoughts, embellished through 'Amorphous Silence'. 'Diffraction','Gold Opacity' and 'Pust' will leave you floating and submerged in your own flotation tank. Drifting into nothingness, a time to shed and let go. 'Obsidiana', 'The Hum' and 'Plateau' push you upwards and on towards a ceiling of light, crashing first through barriers of your own constricting thoughts and feelings where finally...with 'Exhale', you can at last breath; the purest breath.
The album began life as a one take improvisational piece, which was then fine tuned in the studio by Ivo Santos (aka VelgeNaturlig), resulting in the fluid, organic wave of sound that you now hear. This full CD of new and original music comprises of 10 tracks of experimental drone and ambient soundscapes.

A year later you walk through long forgotten caverns with lantern lit. You've finally found the underground lake. A tired face stares back at you from it's reflection.

Occult and ethereal, this album is for lovers of Necromancy and the unexplored ruins beneath the sands of Egypt.. $12.67

Creation VI - Deus Sive Natura CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo071)
Drone veteran Creation VI (Russia) presents us with his debut album on Cryo Chamber.
The cold wind howls outside the warm yurt, the shaman inside prepares the pipe. The inhale is deep. With the exhale he starts throat singing. The smoke dances between drums and bells raised by the rest of the tribe. Sweaty face sway and glazed eyes blink in rhythm with the beat.
This album is a journey of us humans moving through the ages in our universe. Trying to figure out our place within it as we forge myths and philosophies. Build megaliths and temples. Send our prayers into space and bide our time waiting for the miracle.
Recorded on old tapes for a fuzzy warmth. This album uses a lot of acoustic instruments like blockflute, chinese flute (hulusi), shruti-box, harmonica, ocarina, kazoo, bells, chimes, seeds & seedpods. Tribal drums make you feel like you are in the middle of a hypnotic ritual. Recommended for you who enjoy Ugasanie and Paleowolf and field recordings.. $12.67

Dronny Darko - Abduction CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo068)
Dronny Darko brings us a new album of dark dreams, recorded in the smoke filled Black Room studio (Kiev, Ukraine).
Dark entities roam the edge of our reality. An incomprehensible intellect observes our primitive patterns and behaviors. Vulnerable and naked, you become abducted and pulled into their domain. Examined by strange machines that hum, buzz and drip. You awaken, ankle deep in a purple fetid sludge that submerges the floor of the charcoal citadel. Alien symbols adorn the colossal doorways here, each leading into a new world. In the distance guttural clicks reverberate as they watch your trembling steps from within the shadows. Are they waiting for you to choose your fate?
This album merges the lowercase and minimal genre with a strong science fiction element. Throbbing bass layers croak and groan under the pressure of whirling machines that buzz and hum. Very dark and brooding.. $12.67

Blackened clouds grumble down a bitter melody of tears upon the streets. A single shot blares between your ears, dropping you to the bed of concrete below. Here we witness the transformation of a once awakened man turned to sleeping prisoner.
Plunging deeper into the heart of the unconscious mind, the doors to a mysterious labyrinth emerge before us. From behind the towering walls, strange voices beckon us to enter. We insert and turn the key, unlocking a hidden portal to the past. A forgotten dimension, where once suppressed memories now filter through the lens of the surreal. This is the place where our darkest reflections go to hide. Self-perception is liquid here, and the emotional landscapes morph at will.
Deep bass, ethereal guitar and post rock influences mixed with Vocal narration and Binaural field recordings, This album has it all. A sonic explosion of the senses and a deeply moving and personal experience brought to the microphone.. $12.67

Baldruin - Biotische Verwitterung LP ( Cloister Recordings: Crus23)

My goodness, these earworms are infectious.

Bleach For the Stars - The Time for Silver Flowers CD ( Cromlech Recordings: CromCD1704)
Bleach For The Stars is the dark ambient, drone & industrial project of Benjamin Power, hailing from the UK. His music is best described as an intense, raw and powerfully emotional journey into the dark regions of his mind. Ben uses his art to deal with his past and his life's experiences. Without going into his personal details it is clear to the listener that Ben has had his fair share of tragedy and bleak moments in life. This results in extremely profound musical pieces that create a menacing feeling but also make you appreciate them as something very pure and unreserved. Seldoml has music been such a direct and stark statement as with this album. "The time for silver flowers" is a therapeutic and dramatic expression by an artist who is truly fascinating.. $12.67

Anima Nostra - Atraments CD ( Malignant: TumorCD107)

Initially the name of a collaborative CD between Henrik Nordvargr Björkk and Margaux Renaudin released on Cold Spring in 2016, the duo have now relabeled and solidified themselves under the Anima Nostra moniker, and in turn, broadly expanded their sonic palette, taking the more intimate ritual ambient aspects of the debut, and incorporating them as part of towering constructs that blur the line between death industrial, doom metal, and neo-classical. With it’s upward swells of foreboding brass, fearsome tribal percussion, and hammering, bass heavy dirge, “Atraments” is the unleashing of something truly monumental and cataclysmic, eclipsing nearly everything Nordvargr has ever been associated with in of scope and grandeur. Integral and prominent in the mix are heavily serrated and imperious vocals, employed to drag the listener inexorably into an inferno of apocalyptic proportions, while adding a more structured “song” element and trumpeting the arrival of an inevitable doom. “Atraments” stands firmly as a vision complete and the perfect soundtrack for times of great tumult.
Completed with artwork by Thomas Ekelund (Trepaneringsritualen) and Portugese occult calligrapher Gordoletters, in 6 panel, heavy stock digipak with spot varnish finish and 8 page booklet.

Following the unrestrained act of aggression that was 2014's "Altamont Rising", Swedish Death Industrial act SHIFT returns to more personal and ethereal domains on "Abandon".

New Arrivals for the Week of June 04 2017

Aeoga - Obsidian Outlander CD ( Aural Hypnox: AH16)
‘Obsidian Outlander’ slowly weaves together droning fabric of guitars and analog synths that melt together with abstract sounds and field recordings. Whereas earlier works have been more holistic in nature, 'Obsidian Outlander' is maybe the most narrow-focused thus far - bound to only certain frame and concept. The album exhales its nocturnal essence upon the listener and inhales this sensory experience back into Aeoga's mythopoetical dimension, crystallizing into a vision of a vigil standing before a slowly throbbing corpsecloth, while the black loom weaves the fabric of UN-inverse-OM. Total running time: 29:08.
The CD version of the album is enclosed in a customised and screen printed Sublunar series cardboard covers, including three two-sided insert cards. Limited to 500 copies.. $13.50

Anemone Tube - In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality CD ( Blossoming Fern: Fern01)
Related to Nietzsche`s notion of the Wagnerian music drama as a revelation of the abysmal truth about man, “In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality” allures us into the Dionysian dreamland, where tragedy reigns, in pursuit of the ultimate oneness. With its washes of noise and layers of piercing feedback on a subbase of wavering synths, it is a maelstrom of sound generating a hallucinatory reality. The atmosphere oscillates between destructiveness and aggravating frenzy, between the archaic and the sacral, between frenzied passion and abyssal melancholy, serving the mythical experience of music in a world where language has failed as a method of communication and music figures as the primordial form of expression.
As he considers humanities to have reached their limit, young Nietzsche hopes to find ultimate spiritualization and idealization in the reborn myth. Music alone (“our German masters”), as the primeval form of poetry and revelation of true Dionysian wisdom, may achieve triumph over the Apollonian shallow world of apparition.
With his timely musical rendition of mythical experience as “In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality”, Anemone Tube conveys an emotionally and mentally charged album which reveals his soft spot for progressive post rock metal acts like Amusement Parks On Fire, Blut Aus Nord or O.L.D. Their special approach of dreamy melodies vs. atonal, discordant sounds is skillfully recreated through polyphonic synths lines, which are then modulated into feedback and added for good measure.
Carrying the same title as the 2015 cassette EP release on The Epicurean, this CD with its 40+ minutes total length and five all new, yet unreleased tracks is less a mere re-release, but rather a full stand-alone album, featuring Ukrainian dark ambient artist Monocube on one track, as well as including sounds by Russian avantgardists Post Scriptvm and sound processing by French sound artist Pacific 231.. $12.67

First ever vinyl reissue of one of the severe classic album by Death Squad "Isolation As Intent" originally released on Spastik Kommunikations (ex-Spastik Soniks / pre-Neural Operations) as SK2 in 2000.
"Silence begins in the mind, surrogate feeding times & diminishing drives, to want, to move, to have, to covet, to exist. Death dominates all. The walls are cold... Made from nocturnal desecrations, in & along the false senses we create & perceive. Sound gains, motioning as if dead, suffocated in aisles of paranoia, it looks & breath. We have felt the glow of blood pouring from self inflicted wounds, from abuse, we have felt this & can no longer deny the release of pressure that the world & its parasites demond. Stretches of incogruent speech, focus lost. Well hidden in the addiction, drugs, sleep, self isolation. There is nothing... Subconscious atrocities at night, the reverberations from the mind begin their relentless attack... Self divided by self... Nothing left to bury but my body." - Notes from original disc

The Vomit Arsonist - Meditations On Giving Up Completely CD ( Malignant: TumorCD106)
Anyone familiar with The Vomit Arsonist’s past body of work should know to expect a healthy dose of negativity and hopelessness with every release, but never has that been more true than with his 5th full length, Meditations on Giving Up Completely. There is no reinvention of the sound and no veering off course, but rather a narrowing of the sonic palette, condensed into a continual free-fall of complete despair and nihilism. As Andy Grant described it, Meditations is a release about "futility, failure, and no longer being able to find even a shred of worth in humanity". That mindset is perfectly captured and reflected in the stripped down, monolithic nature and sheer dense weight of the 7 tracks here, where distant furnace blasts and scraping metal abrasions churn amidst toxic fumes and opaque, polluted murk, the vocals roaring through the mix in thick sheets of distorted fury. Those with a fragile mental state may want to steer clear of this one, but for those that find solace with the curtains drawn or at the end of a rope, Meditations on Giving Up Completely is unwavering in its direction and resolute in its approach.. $10.67

Matthew Soko, whose spoken vocals shape the album (and whose artwork and body form the visuals), gives this perspective on its genesis and his participation: "Nude And Full Of Wounds began as a phrase spoken to me in passing and brought to life as the project evolved with the atmospheric music that was fed to me by Kevin (Tomkins) and Paul (Talyor) . The ocean exists as a constant metaphor and the industrial sounds by industrial legends Sutcliffe Jugend further define and guide the themes present in the spoken work that leave the listener with a sense of isolation".. $12.33

Dread (Lustmord) - In Dub CD ( Ant-Zen: Act352)
Dread is a newly formed project of legendary sound artist Brian Williams, best known as Lustmord. Since 1980 his dark sound sculptures have been highly influential not only in music genres such as ambient and industrial, but also in film and games. Besides these genres, Williams is thoroughly captivated by the sonic potential of dub music, an obsession reflected in the various dub mixes he’s made for other artists: Think of the remix album for Puscifer, or the dub remix EP for the Lustmord album [other] in 2009. For years it was his desire to form an individual project dedicated to the dub genre, and after much preparation and recording, ant-zen is glad to present Dread’s debut In Dub.The mightiness and intensity of this album is both tense and trance-inducing, drawing attention to the shape and depth of the space between sounds as well as to the sounds themselves. The instrumental tracks, drenched in echo and reverberation, ebb and flow, dropping in and out of the mix, kept together by the prominent use of varied deep bass sounds. The use of implemented voices, acoustic drums and an electric guitar played by Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit impart a distinctly organic feel to the music even though the effects are electronically created.
Both unique and original, this release melds seamlessly into the tapestry of Brian Williams’ work. Breathtaking, dark, unshiftable and solid, this is the kind of dread where you’re not sure where the evil force lurks, but you know it’s out there searching for you…. $13.33

Hybryds - Only Darkness CD ( Sleepless: SRB029)
Belgian art / music project born in the underground of the 80 ties in previous century, Hybryds has always been a project of worldwide located people working together, ( by mail) directed by mastermind Magthea.
Hybryds were one of the first bands to explore the tribal, atavistic feeling of losing your mind in the sound of music. By mixing contemporary electronic techniques with ancient tribal influences they created a new eclectic music style, crossing the borders of ethnic and industrial music: Ritual music.The last 3 CDs ( on Sleepless) were born out of live jam sessions between Magthea, Peter De Koning, Madeline Arndt and even Barry Edgar Pilcher ( who came of his island after 25 years to join Hybryds in person.)
Going back to their roots: ritual music. Trance inducing ambient atmospheres, from Barry's manipulated saxophone are sucked up in tribal rhythms, electronic beats, colouredwith the intense percussion of TraumaSutra, blend in the evocative and impressing vocals of Madeline Arndt.When you close your eyes, and let your heartbeat synchronise with the pulsating rhythms from ancient lost times and free your mind on the magical sound waves, you can tune in with the great Universe of Life. Darkness will eat parts of your soul and show you the light.. $14.67

Bizarre Uproar - Sikiöasento 2CD ( Filth & Violence: F&V159)
Bizarre Uproar has undertaken many a rather remarkable journey over these last years. Having gained notoriety, respect and disgust for the authentic BDSM and fetish aesthetics, the crude and sadistic sounds and a variety of intense live actions, Pasi Markkula has never feared to reinvent techniques and follow paths which could be hard to digest to say at least. More recent outputs such as “Vihameditaatio” or “Dekadenz” could probably be described best as static sickness, which draws its power from skilled interactions between monotonous bleakness and harshest brutalism“Sikiöasento” is a great example of how Bizarre Uproar succeeds at fusing new ideas with old (but gold) tricks. Possibly, this album recaptures the mania and hate of past triumphs like “Purification” or “Mother” more than the last ones but maintains the same level of darkness and disgust that defined the younger outputs. “Sikiöasento” strangles its listener with hate-filled eyes and foam running from its mouth. Markkula's iconic vocals howl with heavy delay and spite and narrate the peaks and depths of the sonic rage enclosed. Hate, chaos and death are merged into one and the result is nothing short of pulverising.The violence reigns supreme and the intensity is as high as it could possibly be.. $14.99

CHVE - Rasa CD ( Consouling Sounds: Soul059)
Colin H. van Eeckhout is best known when he is surrounded by kindred his spirits in sludge/post metal outfit, Amenra, but now he steps into the limelight on his own, solely using a hurdy gurdy and his voice as instruments to dig deep within his own self.
This is CHVE at his most vulnerable. Just a man, his thoughts, scars and memories, with his voice and his instrument. The album is magnificently produced by Dehn Sora (Treha Sektori, Sembler Deah), and brings long soundscapes capturing in ambient and droning sounds, what lies beyond what can be grasped by words.
CHVE started to build his album out of an empty void. He built layer upon layer, and rebuilt and reconstructed to complete his universe called RASA. The album ended up somewhere between folk, drone and ritual. But above all, the album is a conquest, a meditation and it offers an inward journey, between grief and tears.
Art and packaging design by the unimitable Dehn Sora.. $11.33

Northumbria - Markland CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo063)
Markland is the second album in Northumbria’s trilogy inspired by the Norse discovery of Canada.
As you set foot in Markland, the salty mist of the ocean gives way, swirling around your heavy boots as they crunch on the rocks. Unexplored land left untouched. The wind screams around the mountaintops and something echoes in the distance. You make your way across the steep mountain pass, your eyes water as the weather turns harsher with each step. From atop the cliffs you kneel in awe at the primordial alien landscape stretching on and on. Your trembling hand covers the yellow hazy sun as you spot wild shadows dancing in the dark forest below. A sickly thunderous roar builds from deep within the earth turning day into night, what is this place?
Using only guitar and bass, and recording their improvised compositions live, Jim Field and Dorian Williamson create a deep textured sound world. Evoking the ancient wonder that the Norse explorers must have felt discovering Markland, the land of the Forests.. $12.67

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.

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.

Antlers Mulm - Touring the Moon Bog CD ( Autarkeia: ACD097)
New album from Leipzi's Antlers Mulm, five years since their last regular album, “The Age of Efficiency”.started 14 years ago, A.M. is still haunting the spaces between electronica, electropop, idm, and new wave. Everything is still covered with pieces of whispering dirt, and textures of mostly bleached colors. this release finds the producer Hans Johm a.k.a. Mulma Lonesome on the keys and pads. through the years he worked on many collaborations – we saw projects with Stephan Spreer of Llovespell (who is still his partner on stage and on their label SEA STATE), Andreas Wahnmann of Fir§t Law (The Viral Dread/TVD), Holger Wobker of Boytronic (Beachhead), a flash of the work with Frank Machau of Orplid (we hope for more to come...) and with D.

Contrastate - No Eden With Annihilation LP/CD ( Tesco: Tesco109)
Active from the late 1980s through to the present day Contrastate follow up their last studio album “A breeding ground for flies” with this the sister release “No Eden Without Annihilation”. The tracks were performed live at various venues across Europe between 2012 and 2014. Theirs is a sonic soundtrack to an apocalyptic world that is hypnotic, yet still full of dynamic sounds and shifts. Their sound insinuates itself somewhere inside the dark ritual ambience of the electronic avant-garde shot through with a vein of experimental noise and sarcophetic vocals strewn amongst industrial surrealism. Contrastate, along other experimental acts from the 80's and 90's, have gone through something of a critical re-assessment of late. Their music has come to be understood on its own terms and nothing like them has really come to take their place. “Contrastate achieve an amazing equilibrium between organic sound and brooding electronics” – Heathen Harvest.. $23.99

Dødsmaskin - Fullstendig Brent CD ( Malignant: TumorCD104)
The physical debut for Norway’s Dødsmaskin, Fullstendig Brent («completely burnt»; «holocaust») is a meticulously crafted effort that presents to the listener a sonic interpretation of one of the darkest chapters in Norwegian history, namely the witch trials that took place in the country's northernmost regions during the 17th century. Assembled constructs that incorporate field recordings, drones, atonal melodies and clusters of distortion and searing noise, Dødsmaskin transcends all genre classification, pushing boundaries while deftly navigating through a spectrum of post-industrial soundscapes. Tracks can and often start quietly and introspectively, then build to explosive climaxes of unbridled tension and razor sharp intensity, with dense pneumatic blasts intersecting with caustic frequencies and mechanized throb. It’s that kind of unpredictability, attention to detail, and forward-thinking craftsmanship that’ll have you thinking Kevin Drumm one minute, and Sistrenatus, STROM.ec or Propergol the next, and what makes Dødsmaskin such a vital new entry to the Malignant roster. Mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri of Black Knoll Studio, N.Y. (www.blackknollstudio.com) and presented in a 4 panel, textured digipak.. $9.67

Isomer - Three Kestrels LP ( Tesco: Tesco107)
L.ed.num 300 , incl. download code! It’s been a long time between drinks! Finally here is the new full-length from Isomer: his first release since Cipher Productions’ 2011 EP ‘Nil by Mouth’ and his first on Tesco since 2009. In the intervening years, the violence and dirt of alter ego Rope Society has had a good airing, but with ‘Three Kestrels’ that project’s modus operandi meets Isomer’s more subdued material to spurt a blend of muscular power electronics and heavy drone, similar to the direction on ‘Nil by Mouth’. Taking as its starting point a period of personal upheaval, ‘Three Kestrels’ looks at the experiences of unfamiliar territory and is a paean to strength and overcoming. Our most foreign and unfamiliar experiences harbour the greatest change. $22.00

Jarl - Hypnagogic Domain CS ( Autarkeia: ACD92)
JARL "Hypnagogic Domain" CAS. Never published sound material of Swedish composer Erik Jarl dating back to 2007-2008. Here we have very suggestive ambient music conveying Erik’s experience in anomalous hypnagogic states that he often used to find himself in before. In Middle Ages, one believed that this state is induced by a demon sitting on one’s body. This is a phenomenon of the mind. Mental phenomena that occur during this "threshold consciousness" phase include lucid dreaming, hallucinations, and sleep paralysis. Other terms for hypnagogia, in one or both senses, that have been proposed include "presomnal" or "anthypnic sensations", "visions of half-sleep", "oneirogogic images" and "phantasmata", "the borderland of sleep", "praedormitium",. The "borderland state", "half-dream state", "pre-dream condition", "sleep onset dreams", dreamlets, and "wakefulness-sleep transition" state. Threshold consciousness [commonly called "half-asleep" or "half-awake", or "Mind Awake Body Asleep"] describes the same mental state of someone who is moving towards sleep or wakefulness but has not yet completed the transition. Such transitions are usually brief, but can be extended by sleep disturbance or deliberate induction, for example during meditation. side one: hypnagogic domain part 1-3 side two: hypnagogic part 4 Lim.

Various Artists - Ivan the Terrible 2CD ( UFA Muzak: UFA70)
18 tracks 100 minutes, 2 CD, 6 sided digipack Bombastic martial/ Strange Neofolk / Weird electronic / Obscure ambient. Ufa Muzak in cooperation with Anenerbe Music Club presents to all fans of epic, conceptual and electronic music this 2-CD album with a collection of tracks from bands from all around the world, dedicated to the film by Sergey Eisenstein "Ivan The Terrible" (1945-1958). Over 100 minutes of the most varied and interesting sonic palette present the contemporary soundtrack to the motion picture which is a milestone in historical cinema. Big and complex work which was never entirely finished (being shot during the World War II, 2nd part released many years after the first one, 3rd part remained only in screenplay, preliminary sketches and notes), containing mystical prophetic motives of the tragic role of the country at the crossroads of world history, offering most violent physical and moral ordeals. The very image of Ivan IV The Terrible, ruling Russia during 50 years in uneasy times, is very ambiguous and open for research, and at the same time it is a historical symbol of those times, inspiring not only science workers, but also artists to create works in honour of his name. Having this monumental picture created by the genius director, now the musicians make no less painstaking work to express the breath of those dark times, soaked in dissension, wars, tyranny, oprichnina and constant civil strife. If you care about the history of Russia, history of cinema and its masterpieces, actual and thoughtful Industrial / Neo-Folk scene, be sure this album will bring a lot of pleasant surprises.

Common Eider King Eider - Unhuulda CS ( Cloister Recordings: Crus14)
Common Eider, King Eiderhas always been an enigmatic project, marching to the beat of its own tribal drum and operating on the fringes of an already fringe scene—one that finds comfort in sweeping drones, stirring neofolk, field recordings, and pastoral near-silence. This endeavor (the collective effort of Rob Risk, Blaine Todd, and Andrew Weathers) bends noise and feedback to his will, smoothing out harsh edges into something soothing, gentle, and quite lovely; nature infuses every note and every pause, and that the project's latest album, ‘Unhuulda’, has a heavy environmental focus and its five movements sound like a dark forest evening is no coincidence. Beautiful, haunting eco-ambient.
‘Unhuulda’ is the latest offering from Common Eider King Eider's own imprint, Caribou People. It comes with a handmade book of poetry, printed with metallic gold ink on blood red 100% recycled paper.. $7.67

3rd of 4 tapes released within a years time from this Nevada based, female fronted project. The buzz on Himukalt has been growing steadily with each release, and for the most part, it's warranted and justified; harrowing soundscapes built on distorted sinewaves and sinister oscillator throb with uttered, non-decipheral vocals, fearsome, propulsive loops, and expertly placed samples. There's a cold, detached quality that permeates all Himukalt releases, and it adds to the sense of tension and overall visceral nature of her work. Highly recommended.. $8.50

It Only Gets Worse - Angels CS ( Cloister Recordings: CRUS16)
Collaborative project between Matt Finney and Gnaw Their Tongue's Maurice De Jong; "Fusing the moody, jazzy sounds of Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks score with minimal electronic beats and weathered, gruff spoken poetry, Angels expounds upon the despondent roots of Finney and Mories’s earlier works and gives the individual elements more space. The droning, sedated pop syrup bleeds slowly and with purpose, as restrained and calculated as Finney’s truncated prose. The beautiful, calming music belies some very harsh themes, which are expanded further by Finney himself below, which feeds into my earlier conceit of brutality. This is sad, despairing music, and, when given the right context, is difficult to listen to in one sitting. And yet Angels is beautiful, and there are moments in which Mories’s downcast pop electronics, when paired with Finney’s distant, detached presentation, become otherworldly. There are a lot of harsh things in this world, gussied up with flowers and pretty colors, but they only serve as a mask, and the superficial beauty of Angels only makes what it hides all the more hideous".

La Breiche - Le Mal Des Ardents CD ( Cold Spring: CSR224CD)
La Breiche (“the witch”) features two well-known musicians: Arexis and Lafforgue of Stille Volk – a band best known since 1994 as one of the pioneers of Pagan Folk in Europe – and of Pagan Black French band Sus Scrofa.
“Le Mal Des Ardents” (“Holy Fire”) is a concept album about fears, terrors, about the balance between folklore and reason, myth and common sense, light and darkness, past and present, modernity and archaism. The album marries minimalism, purity, a fine approach and ancient instruments: traditional music (hurdy gurdy, shawm, polyphonies, percussion, gongs); the gloom of oppressive dark ambient; the slow pace of ritual music, wavering between modernity and archaism. Voices rise towards beauty, lifting it away from some occult mud. Holy Fire takes us back to a forgotten world – a primal, ancient, wild and free world, pervaded by secret dances of sorcerers’, unfathomable forests, remote and lifeless places.6-panel digipak.. $12.67

Michael Idehall - Retort Redux LP ( Retortae: Venenum2)
imited edition of 150 copies :retortae: is happy to present its second collaboration with our friends from outstanding Beläten family. After the instantly sold out 3LP epic release from Trepaneringsritualen, the mastermind behind Beläten, this time we offer the vinyl compilation of the best tracks from one of the most intriguing and unusual members of this Swedish label's roster - Michael Idehall. Starting in 2011 with a collaboration tape with Thomas Martin Ekelund, he continued further with several obscure tape, online and vinyl releases preferring to stay a bit in the shadow. Nonetheless he got many devoted fans quite soon and in a short time the greater interest by the wider audience has been arised. Due to these demands Michael decided to go more into the light now and agreed to do bigger forms. Last year's Ant-Zen CD reissue of two older tapes was first of them, the second one is now being presented and it is, so to say, "Greatest Hits" LP. The album includes the best and most attractive compositions from previous releases as well as two tracks not available on any physical matter before and one track which is totally new. In terms of sound the rhythmic elements are combined here with a very gloomy and sinister mood and that could remind us of some Galakthorroe heroes, but in terms of darkness Michael goes much further, it is closer in mind to his friend Trepaneringsritualen and sometimes goes as far as only great Coil have gone in their wildest dreams. So, we are proud to welcome all of our friends to this dark and dystopian world, sometimes brutal, occult and frightening, sometimes sensual, perversed and extatic, but always trance-inducing and dwelling.

Nytt Land - Fimbulvinter CD ( Cold Spring: CSR234)
Notably outstanding on the Russian scene and largely compared with the legendary Wardruna, NYTT LAND are unique in their devotion to ritual Northern music and tradition. Their approach, using genuine native hand-crafted instruments, and true Old Norse, help them to grasp the true spirit of ancient Northern music like no one in Eastern Europe has done before. Their music is mostly based on the sources from Poetic Edda, performed in original Old Islandic.
“Fimbulvinter” is enriched with instruments like bagpipes and trembita (Alpine horn), and throat singing skillfully used to illustrate the occurrence of the forces of chaos; chthonic monsters in the world of men and gods. Fear and powerlessness alongside belief in the coming revival, renewal.
All Scandinavian mythology is permeated with fatalism, humbleness to fate. The same mood saturates “Fimbulvinter”. The first part is dedicated to the creation of the world and people, embodying the warm seasons. The second half to winter, the death of all living things.

Your Limit is Oozepus’ first official release, a 4 track EP built on battering repetition and singular, monolithic riffs, and propelled forth by rigid bass lines, Bungo Uchino’s warbled, under water vocals, and massive percussive pummel. All of it’s delivered with an infectious and hypnotic cadence, coalescing into a towering wall of heaviness and pressurized sludge.Not necessarily what you’ve come to expect out of Malignant, and yet, sure to find appeal to those with industrial sensibilities and to those that appreciate all manners of extreme music.. $8.67

You will hear hints and echoes of native keening, lush prog romanticism, and the charcoal textures of noise, but all subsumed within our alchemy, the unmistakable wellspring of sound that is SF”.6-panel digipak.. $14.50

Trepaneringsritualen - Deathward, To the Womb CD ( Cold Spring: CSR222CD)
Trepaneringsritualen’s long out of print debut release: Deathward, To The Womb finally sees a proper reissue on CD, and limited edition 12″ vinyl.
An invocation not so much of BABALON Herself, but of the tormented elemental of Frater T.O.P.A.N., and his fervent attempts to usher in the Æon of Horus.
In the lyrics – based on the texts of Frater T.O.P.A.N. on the Babalon Working – the perilous flame that is BABLON is called upon to ravage creation. She is asked to scorch the earth clean for the coming cosmic renovation. The Eternal Virgin would spring from Her womb. From Her love, the new divine man would be born. 70 years after the Bablon Working was deemed successfully concluded, its utter failure is painfully apparent.»All love songs are of me« She says. This is certainly true of the first five songs of Deathward, To The Womb. The final songs, All Hail The Black Flame, seem different altogether. In this guise, BABALON brings not solely love, but cataclysm; a holocaust brought upon the domain of Man. Manifested as the Black Flame, She reaches from a time before time, formless chaos, and rips apart the very fabric of the created worlds. Such is Her nature: two opposing principles; that of the nurturing mother, and that of the callous destroyer.
“She is flame of life, power of darkness – She destroys with a glance – She may take thy soul. She feeds upon the death of men"
Appended to the six original songs is a specially commissioned 12 minutes and 57 seconds long ritual work entitled “I Remember When I Was God” (included as download for the vinyl edition), and attributed to Teeraal Räum Pheynix. BABALON was summoned at Winter Solstice 2015 under the sign of ᚢ, with assistance from Alone In The Hollow Garden, A.I.L of Arktau Eos, Michael Idehall, KzR of Bölzer, Nÿland ii of Hadewych, and Æther. To destroy and to give life. We declare this ritual concluded and successful.. $12.67

Rotat - Carnal Beauty CD ( Freak Animal: RCBFACD1)
After hearing this great recording of ROTAT, Freak Animal decided that merely around dozen copies as self financed tape isn't enough. What we have here, is full length CD version of Carnal Beauty. Unusual case in Finnish noise at this era, announcing influences like TAINT and SMELL & QUIM. Providing both sleaxy and grim as well as deranged sense of black humor. It is hard to put ROTAT into narrow category. It goes from harsh and brutal noise to power electronics, with lots of primitive sounds and electronic damage. It is ugly and disturbing recording.. $12.77

Atomine Elektrine - The Second Moon CD ( Old Europa Café: OECD235)
For at least two centuries there have been ideas about another companion to Earth, a conception of a second moon orbiting Earth. Mankind has explored the Universe in many levels and directions, both close and very far away. We may think we should know all about the heavenly bodies next door, but it does not seem so. There has been a number of claimed moons of Earth at least since 1846 and the latest claim was done by Nasa as late as April 2016. With "The Second Moon" Atomine Elektrine turns closer to Earth, scrutinizing some of the stories of claimed second moons, still firmly floating around in the unknown domains of space. Organically revolving vivid layers of cosmic activities are blended with enigmatic fluctuated sequencing occasionally broken and saturated while orbiting around the Earth in the search of another satellite. Try yourself, listen and hear if you can see the second moon. Atomine Elektrine is a cosmic project by the Swedish Peter Andersson, most known for the dark ambient industrial project RAISON D'ETRE. Digipak.. $12.88

Gnaw Their Tongues - Hymns For The Broken, Swollen And Silent CD ( Crucial Blast: CBR117)
The new album shows Gnaw Their Tongues at the top of its game. The band started out as a studio project, but has recently started performing live, and it feels like this carefully found its way into the music. Don’t get us wrong: oppressive, bleak and claustrophobic remain the key words when describing the unique output of this drone/noise/black metal infused miscreant of Mories. The music grabs you by the throat and sucks all the air out of the room. Although it leaves little more than an anaerobe environment, the music itself feels likes it has been breathing and organically growing into this true beast of an album. Brace for impact.. $10.00

Nordvargr - The Secret Barbarous Names CD ( Malignant: TumorCD102)
Active since the late '80s as a member of MZ.412 and Pouppée Fabrikk, few names within the realm of dark industrial and blackened ambient carry more weight and presence than Sweden's mighty Nordvargr. Though side projects Muskel and Koerperwelten have been released on Malignant, The Secret Barbarous Names is the first solo recording done for the label, and Nordvargr's first physical release since 2013's The Dromopoda Transmissions on Old Europa Café.
A vocal based work inspired by the Draconian and Typhonian traditions, the title refers to the hidden meanings of the countless manuscripts that have been kept secret for millennia - their supposed effectiveness resting in their utterance, not their meaning. The words of power, vibrated at the correct frequency and amplitude in the correct setting and time, have the power to manifest anything. As such, these are an incredibly haunting and formidable invocations, built upon richly timbered, incantatory vocals and deep, liturgical chants, and occasionally augmented by ominous orchestral swell and ritual percussion. All of it is endlessly stretched out into lightless passages of primordial malevolence and suffocating dread, completing an album that will stand out as a highlight, even within such a lofty and illustrious discography as Nordvargrs.
Lavishly packaged in a digipak designed by Margaux Renaudin (Anima Nostra).

Gender Trouble - Chokehair CD ( Dark Vinyl: DV69)
Gender Trouble is a new project by R. Loren (Pyramids/Sailors With Wax Wings/White Moth) and Faith Malimba (Black Doll), along with guest collaborators including Kenneth Parker and Ashley Scott Jones, and vocal spots by Marissa Nadler, and Scout Pare Phillips, that explores the much ignored/maligned/ignored genre of Harsh Noise Wall through the prism of noise, techno, and THE MOTHERFU*KING SPECTACLE. Gender Trouble is static and synth and more static, waves and waves of static, and rejection of music and rejection of nihilism, but with a decent beat you can (but won’t) dance to. Indebted equally to The Rita and Tiesto, I feel confident that if Little Richard was conceived in 1990, this is the music he’d be making today" (R. Loren, October 2016). $10.67

Monocube - The Rituals CD ( Malignant: TumorCD101)
Following a recent appearance on Drone Mind Vol 5, Ukranian act Monocube makes his way into the halls of Malignant for his second, full length recording, featuring nine tracks and just over an hour worth of material ensconced in shadowy, enveloping atmospheres, intact with all the hallmarks of classic dark ambient: arcing, cinematic textures, elegiac melody, and timestretched drift. As The Rituals progresses, it becomes increasingly populated by something even more ominous and bleak; undertones of ancient tribalism and fiery invocations arise, mixed with the blackened soot of distant factory churn and the burning remnants of an ashen wasteland. Featuring collaborative tracks with Treha Sektori, Apocryphos, and Asmorod, The Rituals is an immersive and compelling work, seamlessly tied together by a binding embrace of darkness.
Tracklisting: Visiones III, Drowned Sun, Downwards (feat. Apocryphos), Totem Incantation, Fires Shifting – Nocturnal Motion, Through Our Blood, Father Fenris, Anthracite Glow (feat. Treha Sektori), Initiation (feat. Asmorod).. $10.67

Shrine - Ordeal 26.04.86 CD ( Cyclic Law: 88thCycle)
The new full length by SHRINE is dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster that happened on April 26th, 1986. Composed during a post-operative convalescence period in 2015 Hristo Gospodinov says of the process: “To me the Chernobyl theme has always been very special not only because I witnessed the nuclear sunburn effects myself back in 1986 when I was a kid, but also because I find it to be the closest glimpse of a pending apocalypse we have seen so far. I find it terrifying not only because of the devastating effect of the ionizing radiation itself, but also because it was a man-made event. To me, the parallel with the biblical book of Revelation is inescapable.” Laced with emotional distress and SHRINE’s superbly crafted soundscapes and notable sound design skills, “Ordeal 26.04.86” serves as a tribute to those that suffered, and still suffer from the irreparable. Events like this one have happened again since, the most recent being in Japan’s Fukushima, and there’s definite signs that in the future we’ll unfortunately witness more of these man made catastrophes, in that eventuality, “Ordeal” will serve as the perfect soundtrack. Artwork by Dehn Sora and Hristo Gospodinov.
Edition of 500 copies in 4 panel Digipack. 6 Tracks, 50:00. $13.50
