Hadewych - Welving CS ( Cloister Recordings: Crus43)
Though the project of Dutchman Peter Johan Nÿland, contributions from members of Trepaneringsritualen, Dead Neanderthals, Turia and veteran experimental vocalist Greetje Bijma, help Hadewych to function more as a collective as it amorphously shapeshifts and navigates through a broad swath of styles. And yet, Welving is so finely honed and skillfully crafted, that it works as a singular, whole, never losing a firm grasp on what remains at the core of its unique and dynamic sound. Still, it is nearly impossible to classify or define, utilizing a broad array of instrumentation, working in the monolithic, organic and the acoustic, and filtering it through a complex network of darkened, post-industrial, post-black, ritual hallucinations, and noir-ish Bohren And Der Club Of Gore deathjazz, with a steady stream of insistent bass, percussion, and spoken narrative to propel many of the tracks forward. Hadewych defines their music as black rituals channeling the ultra-grotesque, which is about an apt description as you're going to find, and yet it's that vagueness and ambiguity that manages to sum them up perfectly. One of the most unique and exceptional releases under the Malignant banner, and highly recommended for those unafraid to venture into realms unknown.. $8.00

MZ.412 - Svartmyrk CS ( Cloister Recordings: Crus45)
Swedish behemoths MZ. 412 return with their first full-length album in 12 years, once again asserting their dominion as the true Kings of Black Industrial. "Svartmyrkr" is a massive tour de force that reinvents the classic sound of MZ. 412 whilst retaining their trademark malevolent harshness.
This album is dedicated to the true hell of the north - Helheim - and the giant goddess that rules it, Hel. From blackened ritual incantations, to bleak yet beautiful dark ambient arrangements, to harsh bombastic orchestrations, this album exceeds all expectations.
MZ. 412 blur the lines between music, magick and reality. The earth trembles... the mountains quake... all light is vanquished. The Swedish overlords darken the hearts and extinguish the souls of all who bear witness to "Svartmyrkr". $8.00

New Arrivals for the Week of February 03 2019

Bonini Bulga - Sealed CD ( Cyclic Law: 117thCycle)
Sweden’s enigmatic and highly productive Pär Boström of KAMMARHEIT, CITIES LAST BROADCAST and ALTARMANG presents yet another singular project under the name BONINI BULGA. His debut “Sealed” was originally recorded and released in 2017 as a limited edition cassette on Boström's own label Hypnagoga Press. We gladly present a remastered and extended version of this release. In recent years Boström has been exploring new sonic territories through his various projects, and with BONINI BULGA he’s chosen a more lo-fi loop based approach to his musical creations, bleak and minimalistic, we journey through a careful blend of processed analog synth layers and poignant revolving passages. This expanded edition includes three new tracks, which further exposes Boström’s unique vision and creative pact with the unknown, giving listeners the complete scope of his contemplative sonic magick.
Edition of 500 copies in a special 10 panel, cross fold out Digipak.. $15.67

Cober Ord - Le Chant Des Ruines CD ( Cyclic Law: 115thCycle)
3rd album, and first for Cyclic Law, by the enigmatic French Pyrenean ritual ambient act created by Yann Hagimont (Habsyll, « O », Ecce Homo) and Yann Arexis (La Breiche, Stille Volk, Ihan). Recorded in various natural locations throughout the mystical Pyrenean landscape, in ancient temple caves, sacred mounds and ruins using an array of acoustic and electronic sources and local field recordings. Cover Ord functions as an ode to lost ruins and mineral elements, chants summoning the rising of nature, a post-modern ritual for times of ecocide. They’ve weaved and channeled an exceptional soundtrack exploring the confines of matter, spirit, time and space.
Edition of 300 copies in tall A5 Digipak with 14 pages booklet. $15.67

Desiderii Marginis - Deadbeat CD ( Cyclic Law: 131stCycle)
Re-Mastered reissue of the long unavailable 2001 follow-up to Desiderii Marginis first album “Songs Over Ruins”. Work on “Deadbeat” began in 1999 and one specific aim was to create an album with a strong sense of unity and cohesion, to keep building on the sacral atmospheres of previous work but to aim for added depth and a darker, colder, more industrial sound throughout. At a time when dark ambient music was very much finding its way it certainly felt of the essence to create something with a wider expanse than before, and to try to make it personal as well as emotional amidst the gritty soundscapes. One could say that the delicate balance between the ugly and the beautiful, the harsh and the serene, the darkness and the light that has been a fundamental part of Desiderii Marginis since the onset, came into fruition with this album. Discover or re-discover this timeless classic. CD & Digital version feature 2 previously unreleased tracks.. $14.50

Desiderii Marginis - Vita Arkivet CD ( Cyclic Law: 129thCycle)
Long awaited new material by one of Sweden’s most revered Dark Ambient acts."Vita Arkivet” translates from Swedish as “The White Archive” and is an official document detailing ones funeral arrangements. In death our existence is whitewashed, the slate wiped clean. We start all over and we bring nothing with us were we go. We lose the agency of our own memory and leave it for those left behind to attend to, to continue our story, to write our eulogy. Vita is also the latin word for Life, so the meaning could also be “The Life Archive”. White is the colour of the casket lining, the plaster death masks and the walls of the chapel, it is the colour of the first and last pages. What is kept in between the covers of our life archives? This record is a personal reflection and manifestation of that process, the loss and the great detachment from life, from others, and from ourselves.. $14.50

O Saala Sakraa - Etmaal CD ( Cyclic Law: 111thCycle)
A new collective led by former Hadewych member Peter Johan Nÿland, also a recent member of Trepaneringsritualen. Etmaal ("natural day") is the first in a series of explorations that aim to serve as a channel between the ethereal and chthonic, sacred and profane, the innermost black well and the outermost white sun. The album follows the circadian path as an analogue to the revelation of the actual self, with the sun as the inverted eye that unveils all things in their temporality, opposite the eternal inner black of night. Sudden transitions between coercive percussive hammering and sharp boreal drone pieces seek to mirror cosmic events; from glacial movements to throbbing punctuation and sudden death and with each end resolved arises a new tension and an attempt at cleansing and delving deeper with the intent of finally arriving at the inner clearing. In the recording process for Etmaal, the group effectively alternated between states of extreme focus and hiati in which subconscious impulses were allowed to arise and the result is an album that skillfully wanders an essential pathway between two planes in its own distinctive way. On this album, O Saala Sakraal is a five piece outfit that consists of four percussionists; Scramasax (Volksweerbaarheid/Hadewych/Distel), Rene Aquarius (Dead Neanderthals, Fantoom, Krishna), Patricia Manko (Hadewych), Donné Brok (Donné Et Desirée) and Peter Johan Nÿland (Distel, Hadewych), the latter who plays tapes and piano-string percussion instrument "draak", next to regular percussion. The group first came together for a series shows as Hadewych with an extended percussion section, but it soon became clear that its pieces - partly composed, partly improvised - claimed a realm of their own and drifted away from the overall sound of Hadewych, into something more monolithic, mystical and opaque.

Otavan Veret - Syvys CD ( Cyclic Law: 112thCycle)
"Syvys” is the second demonstration of how Finland’s OTAVAN VERET decipher the pulse of the great cosmic filaments. The radiation from the distant otherness takes audible form in four pieces of ethereal, pulsating atmospherics, where the multitude of transmissions is implemented via a curious amalgam of electronic and acoustic sources operated by Kaarna & XVL. As a result "Syvys” reflects the many phases of a stellar journey in a dreamlike state, encountering both enchantment and anxiousness.. $14.50

Shrine - Celestial Fire CD ( Cyclic Law: 110Cycle)
12.00New album of intense and carefully crafted soundscapes from Bulgaria’s SHRINE after his acclaimed 2016 album “Ordeal 26.04.86”. Based on the fictional story for Tomb Raider III, created by the British game studio CORE in 1998, the story begins in Antarctica millions of years ago, where a meteorite has crashed into the landmass and when the continent was still located in the tropics. Millennials later it was discovered by the ancient Polynesians who had reached the Antarctic coast and they soon realised that strange otherworldly powers surround the celestial rock and so the people began to worship it as a deity. After severe mutations started to occur among their newborn, the settlers fled in terror and never came back but before they left, they sealed the meteorite into a deep underground chamber, locked by four "keys", four unique objects crafted from the same alien material as the meteorite itself. In the 19th century, a group of sailors travelling with Charles Darwin came to Antarctica and rediscovered the artefacts. The story follows the search for the four artefacts and the rediscovering of the meteorite, hypothesised to contain the most important findings in genetics and evolution since Darwin. We are aurally taken through this unique world through 6 singular chapters of pristine sonic grandeur. Artwork by Dehn Sora.. $14.50

Vortex - As Gods Fall 2CD ( Cyclic Law: 126thCycle)
“As Gods Fall…” celebrates the 10th year of existence for the German ritual cinematic ambient project by Marcus Stiglegger. It is the final part of the mythical trilogy that began with “Kali Yuga” (2013) and “Moloch” (2015). Inspired by the Nordic mythology of the Edda, this album revives the realm of the Old Gods in their final conflict. As before this musical reflection on mythology is used as a metaphor for a portrait of the present world out of balance. The tracks were composed after a intense journey to the ancient viking relics of Scandinavia in 2015: “Breathing the air of history I felt ultimately connected to the past and heritage of the old Germanic tribes and their mythology, also understanding what this all means for what happens in the world today. "As Gods Fall" is a cycle of music invoking forgotten energies and lost wisdom...” For this album Marcus S. joined forces with many guest (including Michael De Victor of While Angels Watch), providing unique instrumental and vocal contributions. From pounding martial rhythms and hypnotic ritual chants via brooding drones to stunning and fragile melodic elements this album captures the essence of what Vortex stands for: ritual music. The album was recorded from the summer of 2015 to the winter of 2017 and finally mastered by Frederic Arbour in 2018. Stunning artwork was created by Nihil. This release also contains a bonus-disc “Helstrom” featuring 2 unreleased Vortex tracks as well as remixes by Apoptose, Empusae, Phelios, Visions, Operation Cleansweep and more…
Edition of 500 copies in 6 panel Digisleeve with 8 pages booklet.. $19.00

Controlled Death - Journey Through A Dead Body / Deathwish LP + CD + 2 Tapes in Wooden Black Box ( Urashima: UMA130)
Controlled Death is a new project by the Japanese noise legend Maso Yamazaki a.k.a. Masonna . In April 2018 he decided to make a shudder debut with 1st album "Symphony For The Black Murder" . In this LP, Maso Yamazaki tried to commit to the dark side of psychedelia deepest in his own projects history and surprised the fans, but as soon as it gets excited, it is the 2nd work the wooden black box "Journey Through A Dead Body" & "Deathwish Tapes 1-3".
Cracked minimal electronic sound by Korg MS-20, unclear and disturbing voice, corroded drone effect, with the influence of primitive black metal and dark ritual in "Journey Through A Dead Body" LP which developed a moisturized doom world while wearing a raw material texture. Anxiety, alienation and hypochondria turn into a deep paranoia in pain. Without hesitation, the bodies are emptied, leaving the field to an electronics purulence of rare power disconcerting: a perfect journey through a dead body. And the sound contained in the CD and two cassettes called "Deathwish Tapes 1-3" are direct feeling which developed the idea at the time to making "Journey Through A Dead Body" . In order to record it, it is said to be connected to a microphone at the input of the Korg MS - 20 and recorded on a cassette tape with a single recording. It is nothing to call it mindfuck, its freshness is only fear.
The activities of Controlled Death are like archaic revival to the music experience before Masonna . We can also find the pathology image of the early industrial period and the shadows of Vienna activism such as Hermann Nitsch . The existence and art that pierces through conspicuous consciousness and dives to areas of unconsciousness due to death and pleasure. While taking death as the strongest drug, the season of second summer of death industrial is coming.About 2 hours and 30 minutes of astonishing storm of echoes that bangs it into your head!
The wooden black box comes with LP, CD digipack and two cassettes plus postcard, insert, business card and sheet with notes in Japanese by Tamotsu Mochida (Noise/Industrial music critic in Japan, the organizer of "Anatano kikanai sekai" connect spiritualism and occultism to music and the author of "Industrial Music for Industrial People" - DU BOOKS ).

MSBR - Ultimate Ambience LP ( Urashima: UMA129)
MSBR ( Molten Salt Breeder Reactor ), a.k.a. Koji Tano , was one of the most respected noise artists to arise from Japan's exciting noise/experimental music scene of the 1990's. Much of his material was self-released on his own label, the astounding MSBR Records , which was dedicated to the production of limited edition releases with incredible artwork. MSBR present a music elaborated with previously chosen source of sounds, whose origins are either naturel or artificial, with use of Korg guitar synthesizer and some effects, working in analog sounds. Oscillating between Grappling Electro Noise (as he describes his musical style) and pure noise, the really surprising quality of the sound research leads to a tremendous kind of noise-texture.
“Ultimate Ambience” is his debut album , recorded in February 1991 and released the following year on its label in 400 copies (the first one hundred copies in special edition with in unique fold out handmade covers using foil, paint, and collage elements). Tano 's Molten Salt Breeder Reactor divided record into two long track filled with excellent harsh noise with strong influences of musique concrete and electro-acoustic. The great production on this Lp makes it so powerful that it is frightening at times!
The record has been pressed on 140 gr black vinyl with black label and black inner sleeve and comes in a deluxe silver silkscreen on Fedrigoni black cardboard sleeve, limited to 199 copies w/insert on Rembrandt deluxe paper with layout by Yoshihiro Nakano. Original audio master from Denzatsu.. $24.00

New Arrivals for the Week of January 20 2019

Hybryds - Mistrust Authority & Tectonic Overload 2CD ( Zoharum: ZOHAR 161-2)
For the seventh time, Zoharum present a piece from the history of the Belgian underground legend Hybryds. This time Sandy Nys reached for slightly different albums than before. The following set consists of the material from 'Mistrust Authority Promote Decentralization' released on vinyl in Iceland (1996) and a full-size CD 'Tectonic Overload' (1998). These two discs show Hybryds in a slightly different light. Strong rhythmic motifs of ethnic origin are still here, but music is much more aggressive, technoid and cybernetic. It was certainly a big surprise twenty years ago, but it can be surprising for those who have reached for the earlier Hybryds reissues released on Zoharum.
As with almost every previous Hybryds reissue, some additional material is also given here. This time it is a large fragment of the Munich concert from 1996 lasting more than half an hour. It shows, similarly to both core albums, the beginning of the new cyber punk face of Hybryds.
The album has been digitally remastered from the original master tapes by TraumaSutra. Sandy Nys provided the cover based on the previous editions. The CDs are housed in a digipak sleeve and the album is strictly limited to 500 copies.. $14.67

Maeror Tri - Archaic States CD ( Zoharum: ZOHAR 163-2)
Musicians of the now-defunct Maeror Tri have already had many opportunities to work with Zoharum on both releasing their new recordings and reissues of their older material. Our catalog contains titles by Troum ("Autopoiesis / Nahtscato", "Seeing-Ear Gods" and "Dreaming Muzak"), 1000Schoen (double split with Polish Ab Intra), and also their original project Maeror Tri ("Emotional Engramm" and "Meditamentum"). Together with musicians we remove blank spots in their discography by restoring their older recordings. Maeror Tri was a project operating since the mid-80s until 1997, when they released their last album entitled "Emotional Engramm." In their works they penetrated such genres as minimalism, ambient and industrial music, and borrowed drone aesthetic from classical music. In addition to seven regular albums on CD and LP, they released a number of cassettes. They contained much rawer recordings compared to those from the trio's regular albums.
The third release in this series is "Archaic States" originally released in 1993 by the Japanese label G.R.O.S.S. Tapes. It was the ninth cassette in the discography of Maeror Tri. The following rerelease is expanded with an additional track lifted from the compilation "My Lom II" released in 1998. All the recordings have been remastered for this release.
The album is released in a 2-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 350 copies.. $12.09

Sonologyst - Apocalypse CD ( Eighth Tower Records: ETRCD014)
Eerie drones, oscillations from the ether, distorted dark matter, signals from other dimensions... The music of Sonologyst fluctuates between scientific sonic documentaries and psychedelic abstraction, illuminated by early experimentation of the 50's and 60's, as well as future possibilities of the electronic and electro-acoustic
Everyone predicted it would someday arrive, but so few believed in the inevitable; for within the deepest recesses of people’s hearts and minds, the world's destruction was little more than a foolish and faraway myth. Nonetheless, the insinuations…the ghastly omens…were always there, whether in the way nature’s wrath surfaced through disasters or in the manner in which tyrants continued to rise tall and proud, with no apparent consequence to their shackling actions. However, when Earth’s cataclysmic conclusion finally hit, it manifested not so much through the rumblings of some inner, core force; tumultuous storms; famine; economic collapse; mind control...nuclear devastation. It came predominately from out the darkness of our soiled souls. We caused the end of the world by not caring, by letting charity, good will and compassion die. It was ironically our selfish obsessions for heartless conformity, for sadistic self-preservation that spawned our demise. This album’s tracks represent and punctuate the ultimate end to all ends, with all the melodious sorrow and impetuous anguish that humankind’s collective sins could ever dare conjure—and (bet your bottom dollar) will. Listen close. Listen hard. Learn and prophetically see and prepare, as each segment drags you deeper into the fetid, despairing annals of...the Apocalypse!. $13.33

Vidna Obmana - The Surreal Sanctuary / The Contemporary Nocturne 2CD ( Zoharum: ZOHAR 172-2)
By releasing "The Trilogy" not so long ago, Zoharum have opened a new series in which they are trying to bring closer the VIDNA OBMANA albums, which have long been unavailable in regular distribution and which reach exorbitant prices on auction portals.
This time they took two regular albums to work on. "The Surreal Sanctuary", like "The Contemporary Nocturne", recorded with the guest appearance of Steve Roach, Jim Cole and Joris De Backer, originally appeared in 2000 on Hypnos as separate publications. However, their character, the time in which the compositions were created and the participation of the same guests combine them into an extremely poignant and musically rich entity. Therefore, together with the artist, we decided to publish a two-disc album, closing this chapter in the discography of Vidna Obmana.
All the material was remastered by Dirk Serries in 2018. Photos for this album were made by Martina Verhoeven.
The 2CD album is released in an 8-panel digipak, strictly limited to 400 copies.. $14.67

Vidna Obmana - The Trilogy 3CD ( Zoharum: ZOHAR 159-2)
Dirk Serries, known for his Zoharum collaboration with Celer entitled 'Background Curtain', was operating for many years as Vidna Obmana. The first recordings under this moniker appeared in the mid-1980s. Initially in his work he penetrated very rough industrial sounds, but at the beginning of the following decade he turned to ambient music with subtle ethnic undertones. His first albums, where he successfully explored this style and which also brought him wider notoriety, were 'Passage in Beauty' (1991), 'Shadowing in Sorrow' (1992) and 'Ending Mirage' (1993), composing a trilogy in both sonic and visual sense. A few years later, they were reissued in one package by the American label Relic.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the release of the last album from these three. This is a good opportunity to bring the entire trilogy to light again, as it is considered one of Dirk Serries' outstanding achievements as Vidna Obmana. On top of that, all three albums, both in the form of a triple compilation and as single discs, have long been unavailable and reach quite high prices on auction sites. The discs received a new graphic design, their sound was also remastered by the artist himself. We can enjoy over three hours of these classic ambient sounds again.
The triple album is released in an 8-panel digipak and it is strictly limited to 400 pieces. The cover is designed by Maciej Mehring based on the photographs by Martina Verhoeven. Dirk Serries himself is responsible for the mastering. The whole production process was overseen by Michał Porwet.. $18.00

Shibalba - Stars Al-Med Hum CD ( Agonia Records: ARCD172)
Shibalba is an otherworldly, meditative project from the members of Greek and Swedish black metal bands, Acherontas and Nåstrond.

Some of the more traditional instruments they use include Tibetan horns & singing bowls, bone & horne trumpets, darbukas, ceremonial bells & gongs as well as percussion instruments made of bones and skulls. The music is richly detailed and multidimensional, while its outcome is deep, unsettling and subconscious. As a whole, it offers an otherworldly voyage.

"Stars Al-Med Hum" was recorded and produced by the band themselves and both mixed and mastered by Nekelmu Ilu. The latter also created the album's cover artwork. Black vinyl with full color 2 page insert. $17.00

The science team wave you over and gesture towards a towering black monolith on a grey horizon - the signal came from there? As you approach the titanic structure a low-frequency hum, emanating from somewhere within its chrysalic surface, grows stronger. The cold electric blue of your HUD dances madly, glitching, and the survey equipment beeps furiously. Contact.
Dark swells, pulsating shimmers and endless reverberations greets you on this dark space exploration album. $13.00

Dahlia's Tear - Through the Nightfall Grandeur CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo104)
After 6 years of silence this veteran dark ambient producer is finally back with a new album. Through the Nightfall Grandeur is a dreamy and multi-layered melancholic journey through worlds both inner and outer.
"The dreamer watches you from atop the onyx tower. You are in his domain now, a world within a world beyond the dreamsphere where reality is born anew. Snow flakes melt on your neck as you peer out over a jagged landscape, is this real? You've asked yourself this question more times than you can remember, awakening from each dream within a new dream. Reality has grown into an old weathered memory, left behind at the surface of that first deep dive into the subconscious."
The album revolves around a spiritual awakening where the shattering loneliness of the protagonist fuels the search for meaning. We follow through moonbathed nights on a journey through dark abysses, snowy mountains and desolate moors.
A detailed and layered album that takes many repeat listens to fully explore all the complexities, one mystery at a time unto enlightenment. $13.00

Northumbria - Vinland CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo103)
Vinland is the third and last album in Northumbria’s trilogy inspired by the Norse discovery of Canada.
The journey was long and hard, you lost good men sailing across the never ending sea, but now you stand on foreign land. The father of gods watches over you as his ravens circle the funeral pyre to bring his warriors home.
The rocks here emanate a low hum, the silent wind carries the scent of honey and at nightly camp bestial cries echo between the mountains. Your men speak in hushed voices as the dark creeps close, they mutter about this being the territory of new gods. This dreamy land is getting to your people, some men wake screaming in the blackest hour from visions delivered by the dark below. But for you this expedition is one of enlightenment, the fresh rivers fill your mouth with the light of Yggdrasil, forests carry whispers from the mead halls beyond and as such have you convinced that this is the pathway between the worlds of gods and men.
Using 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 Vinland, the Windswept Land.. $13.00

Various Artists - Shub​-​Niggurath - A Cryochamber Collaboration 2CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo108)
A 2 hour dark soundscape album recorded by 20 ambient artists to pay tribute to H.P. Lovecraft.
Dark sounds from dreamy dimensions to never ending cursed forests. Join us in the ritual of lust for the Black Goat of the Woods.
Shub-Niggurath is an Outer God (or Outer Goddess) in the pantheon. She is a perverse fertility deity.
An enormous mass which extrudes black tentacles, slime-dripping mouths, and short, writhing goat legs. Small creatures are continually spat forth by the monstrosity, which are either consumed into the miasmatic form or escape to some monstrous life elsewhere.
Of all the mythos deities, Shub-Niggurath is probably the most extensively worshipped. Her worshippers include the Hyperboreans, the Muvians, T'yog of K'naa, and the people of Sarnath, as well as any number of druidic and barbaric cults. She is also worshipped by the non-human species of the mythos, such as the "Fungi from Yuggoth" (the Mi-Go) and the Nug-Soth of Yaddith. With the proper occult paraphernalia, Shub-Niggurath can be summoned to any woodlands at the time of the new moon.
So is this a compilation?
No, this is a collaboration and huge undertaking. 20 artists linked studios and sound for over a year so that they could work with each other. This led to a deep exploration of the Mythos and Shub-Niggurath
2 CD album comes in a Deluxe 16 page Hard cover DigiBook. Artwork is served on Matte Laminated pages that makes the artwork stand out. A journal with entries by the seeker of the Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young, as interpreted by writers Donald Persson & Alistair Rennie. $15.50

New Arrivals for the Week of December 02 2018

Apoptose - Die Zukunft CD ( Tesco: Tesco128)
“Wir sitzen in unseren Zimmern und draußen wird unsere Zukunft zerstört.” We sit in our rooms and outside our future is destroyed. This line sets the tone for Apoptoses’s sixth longplayer “Die Zukunft”. Sometimes you don’t have to travel far to see and feel desolation. Your hometown, your room or even your head can turn into an overwhelming world full of fear or confusion – from initial alienation to the unsettling moment when just the voices in your head seem to know what is right or wrong. All this is palpable in the songs of “Die Zukunft”. Instead of painting these voices in colours of terror, Apoptose shows their inherent beauty in super dark electronics with slow motion rhythms.
In the four years of production Apoptose selected a wide range of different singers for this album. Most outstanding is classical trained tenor Daniel Sans. He sings “What Power Art Thou” – a song that was composed by Henry Purcell in the late 17th century. Apoptose and Sans preserve the complex harmonic structure of the original translating it into a breathtaking five minute ride in apoptotic soundspheres. They succeed in conjuring up Purcell’s “cold genius” that had already fascinated legendary countertenor Klaus Nomi in the 1980s. Other voices on “Die Zukunft” include the gloomy spoken words of the advance single “Time-lapse City”, the lost girl’s voice on the title track and two female singers on “Dornen”. Consistent with the album title Apoptose does not look back, but is heading for novel territories within the dark ambient music. $14.67

Pterygium - Concealing the Past CD ( Tesco: Tesco127)
Pterygium is another discovery that was brought to a bigger audience via “Projekt Neue Ordnung II” 4LP Box. Like “DEATHPANEL” the Australian outfit did surprise with his outstanding atmospheric droned textured power electronics. Concealing The Past, Pterygium’s first CD and second full length album compiles a assemblage of studio recordings throughout 2017 and 2018. From jarring analogue live sessions to melancholic, nonchalant atmospheres, each piece disconnects from the next, self containing singularity ideas that present as individual representations of every day chaos and detachment. Continuing on from his debut album “Grip”, Concealing the Past explores greater textural depths, seeking a more elaborate, expansive sound palate. This culminates in adroit switches between cold and bleak to manic and uncompromising. Underlying drones mold layers together leaving melodies to punctuate the structural development of each work. Freestyle, improvised power electronic workouts serve to separate the somber uncertainties. Simply put, Concealing The Past is 9 episodes of modern Sturm und Drang detailing rationalized toil authenticated by modern social tendencies.. $14.67

Masonna - The Passion of Rubbers LP ( Urashima: UMA091)
2nd repress. "The question of what's one's favorite item from their collection (or accumulation) consistently pops up in conversations amongst fans and collectors, and this unquestionably is always my answer. From head-to-toe, insert-to-tape, all elements are in glorious harmony and conversation with what another. Having the G.R.O.S.S. label's 'industrial design' fetish/obsession (some would say a relatively antiseptic departure from much of the other noise tapes of the time) articulating the sexualized rubber/bondage theme is a fantastic intersection, and one, to my knowledge, not touched upon again as overtly by the label (the subtle rope-play of The Three Temples excluded). The presentation truly is the content, and vice-versa; a unique trait in the young but deep legacy of Noise tape packaging. I marvel at the object's concrete refined sense of pruriency – the particular choice of patterned rubber material, the ornamental silver, the crude claw of staples holding the fucker together – all without resorting to pre-fabricated means (for example Dildo & the Dildoes releasing a tape hanging from a vibrator or something). Every time I've slowly and carefully undone the buckle, hear the crack of Velcro, pried the rubber shell open, and later meticulously sealed up its intricacies once I'm finished, the process has felt like nothing less than ritual. Moving on to the actual tapes themeself – double C10 – another perfect choice ; four parts of ‘acidtronics' – a concise statement forced by physical circumstance. I've always been a sucker for increments of twenty minutes on cassettes (in this case the total program being twenty), as well as short tapes, maybe because they focus on what truly matters – how the ‘side flip' is handled: a similarity with others' obsession with 7-inch singles. Parts One, Two and Four offer ‘live takes', uncut and ramming full speed , differing from the intense cut up techniques reported on other studio efforts from the time period; just organic velocity. A fucking monolithic vacuum cleaner sucking up all bullshit ‘good time' posturing, headbands and peace signs, and blowing them into a rubber isolation suite filled with sex gas so that one can truly get deep and ‘well-acquainted ‘ with the finer onanistic details. The Third part/side is a relative anomaly, a marked contrast – echoed out spacious synth bells – the tense and the delicate sharing opposite sides of the same space as the brutish and primal. Simple but effective sequencing; a crucial piece that bare all intentions behind the churning sonic mass surrounding. Taken inside as a whole, the four side shape a massively pleasing and dynamic curve. Absolutely ‘psych' – psychosexual and psychedelic. A ++, five star, two thumbs up, four spurting cocks and all that. C. Spencer Yeh – AS LOUD AS POSSIBLE Issue One 2010 on The Passion of Rubbers 2 x C10 cassette
This astonishing double tape printed in only 144 numbered copies is reissued on vinyl exactly twenty years after his release. Lp has been pressed on 140 gr black vinyl with black label and black inner sleeve and comes in a deluxe silver silkscreen on black cardboard sleeve, limited to 99 copies w/insert in luxury 160 gr ivory paper. All package in a clear plastic sleeve to protect record, cover and inserts form dirt, shelf wear and damage.". $26.00

Distel - Wapens CD ( Ant-Zen: Act378)
Underneath Distel's third full length release lies a thorough personal re-evaluation of truth, unveiling and being. 'Wapens' is the Dutch word for 'weapons' and also translates to 'family crests' or 'coats of arms'. However, a third sense, more specifically related to the kindred word 'wapenen', is explored in the title track's lyrics which propose a state of being wherein the self becomes an existential monolith - becomes focally reinforced in the sense that its presence refers first and foremost to only its own individual being instead of the networks of meaning that we tend to define ourselves by.
Distel's intention while working on this album was to achieve a more direct, massive and monolithic sound than before: to channel most energy through an insistent impulse within the rhythmic and melodic movement - from stomping stabs to legato motion - and make every other embellishment secondary. This initial thought is the core of the music on this album and an overall synthesized modern classical mode is the guideline for new tracks. another aim is to show more colour, truth and openness - and this openness is obviously echoed in the sound of the album itself. thematically 'Wapens' includes many references to end times, apocalyptic visions, embodiment and authenticity towards death. While its predecessors presented the 'muffled sounds from within', now the pandora's box has been opened for all to gaze upon its vast spectrum of horrors.
The self-applied tag 'ultra / angst pop' could now be redefined from the original industrial-based minimal electronics into a unique contemporary strain of high energy synth-pop-noir, or 'dark energy'. A quite evocative mixture of excellent subliminal rhythm machine programming, predominant purging keyboard lines and swirling spectral vocals result in twisted dark wave pieces with a catchy approach carrying an overwhelming, coercive energy.. $13.66

Iszoloscope - All is Immensity and Chaos CD ( Ant-Zen: Act375)
"All is Immensity and Chaos" - a conclusion that can often be reached through decades of artistic experience, and after decades of working with sounds and visions this saying was chosen by Canadian artist Yann Faussurier as the title of Iszoloscope's eighth album. an aggressive, yet melodic release of great diversity showcasing a wide variety of styles and influences where industrial music of the highest quality sets sail into idm territory.
"All is Immensity and Chaos" - a unique and intelligent fusion of sinister ambience, wailing electronics and deep reverberated martial percussion on a bed of distorted glitches and droning pads. frenetic grooves, precision samples and angelic female voices transmit cinematic, disarming atmospheres in which melodic motifs are perfectly in balance with the harsh sound architecture.
"All is Immensity and Chaos" - an important, tightly constructed and mature album with a clear progression from start to finish. a multi-layered musical and personal statement. highly recommended.. $13.66

The [Law-Rah] Collective - Innovation CD ( Raubbau: Raub069)
The latest output by The [Law-Rah] Collective is called 'innovation'. on this release the Utrecht based duo consisting of Martijn Pieck and Bauke van der Wal chose to explore new methods within each of the steps it takes to create an album.
Seven coherent yet diverse tracks with a total playing time of just under an hour. . 'innovation' stay close to the sonic palette for which the collective is known and appreciated; it's still those massive drones - or if you prefer noisey soundscapes - which at moments hurt either your ears or your emotions. but the album is called 'innovation' for a reason, so how the album was created has changed in all possible ways: sound sculpting, composing, mixing, mastering and even collaborating ...
The sound sculpting part was done all with modular synthesis. all sounds have been created from scratch, which was long trajectory of pulling and patching cables and intensive listening until the sound was what it needed to be.
With 'innovation' The [Law-Rah] Collective asked themselves whether it pays off to leave the beaten track; to take a step back and question yourself and your ways.
It's a proven fact: 'Innovation' has become a very intense and consistent album with a clear message. it's not for your average background listing sessions. the sounds are all over the frequency spectrum and the compositions are quite demanding to the listener.
it's intense ... it's dynamic ... it's innovative .... $14.50

Blakk Harbor - Madares CD ( Ant-Zen: Act366)
Madares' is the first album by Blakk Harbor a.k.a. Angelos Liaros (Mobthrow), a Greek artist based in Berlin. The album is named after and inspired by the dune mountains of Crete, whose moonlike landscape was a sacred land of ancient ceremonies. Inspiring the music as well as the cover and artwork, most of the percussive samples and drones on the album were created by recording traditional custom Cretan instruments (lute, skin drums, lyra, tsabouna) and world instruments (Tibetan bowls, gongs, Dungchen horns) granulized through modular synths, hardware samplers and spacetime black holes.
Blakk Harbor guides the listener into an audible intersection between the traditional and the modern, between relief and tension, between secularness and spirituality. Sampled acoustic folk instruments, shamanic percussion and experimental electronics enriched with ritual drones create a dark, moody twist of tribalistic ambiance and subliminal driving force. Omnipresent dark moods permanently interact with cinematic bright spheres to achieve a perfectly balanced equation.
Brilliantly produced and elegantly arranged, Blakk Harbor presents an excellent debut of varied musical and spiritual realms. Highly recommended to those who are willing to take a look beyond the obvious surface.. $13.50

Control - Blood Will Rain CD ( Ant-Zen: Act380CD)
The pious pretense that evil does not exist only makes it vague, enormous and menacing.'
With his new album 'Blood Will Rain' Control presents a release which is a status report of a journey into an artist's saturnine inner self. The sound shows a slight shift in direction from Control's power electronics basics towards death industrial whereat deep, dark soundscapes play a decisive foundational role. Enduring pulses of apparent and sometimes concealed rhythms overlaid with resonant metallic drones and tortured voice treatments evoke a dramatic atmosphere of maleficant trance. An electronically generated ritual music caused by the combination of hypnotic, cavernous and perpetual aggressive elements.
This most sable release in Control's history is a soundtrack for incantations of many kinds: chaos, suffering, enlightenment. Able to establish fraternal bonds between artist and listener, 'blood will rain' might be used to open up as yet closed, or even hidden doors. Be prepared.. $13.50

Whetter is the follow up to 2016's well-received Sinter Pools, and continues along a similar trajectory; gauzy, ethereal ambience augmented by late night textural smear, rhythmic pulsations, and abstract, affected glitch, drifting in and around and through each other in hazy patterns, warm and enveloping, pulsing and reverberating, an indistinct blur... almost tangible, but ineffable.. $9.00

Michael Idehall - Aion Reborn CS ( Raubbau: Raub065)
To those who enjoyed Michael Idehall's 'Prophecies of the Storm' release on Ant-Zen, Raubbau is proud to present a further outing of this outstanding artist's self-coined 'seancetronica' sound exploration - a one-of-a-kind combination of death industrial, apocalyptic tunes with a subliminal song structure and dark, structured ambience. Once again the Swedish producer/performer evokes a crude, vicious force carrying intense tempers of menace, aggression and sadness with a strong streak of esoteric themes and personal poetics shaping the mood and tone. Idehall's rich baritone intoning ritual chants and secretive whispers with a solemn atmosphere, highlight the arcane bent of the heavy electronics pushed with striking tautologic sequences. From sparse throbs and slow paced beats to cinematic ambient elements and industrial overtones, 'Aion Reborn' displays a captivating mixture of alluring vocals, throbbing bass, pounding beats, ominous drones and metallic tremors. An engaging album that provides a gripping and sometimes horrific tale from start to finish where the lack of an easy path for pursuit is part of the experience - hypnotic, forceful and savage. Highly recommended.. $13.50

Ruptured World - Exoplanetary CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo101)
Ruptured World is the cinematic ambient project of Alistair Rennie (UK), who is also known as an author of Weird Fantasy and Horror Fiction.
The exoplanetary deep space mission to Proxima Centauri b has reached its intended destination. Work begins on assessing the planet for its suitability as a site of colonial expansion and habitation for an increasingly desperate human race.
But there are problems.
"Exoplanetary" features fragments of transmissions amid sonorous and distorted interpretations of narrative events as the mission faces up to the challenges of off-world exploration and the inescapable fact that, on Proxima Centauri b, the human visitors are not alone.
Cosmic horror combines with ambient evocations of a real-life futuristic drama in the face of alien estrangement and a prevailing aura of existential persecution. Radio transmissions are superseded by melodic inferences of atmospheric detail and the otherworldly drones of cosmic landscapes and the mysterious twilight roaming grounds of the Krivren.
The "Exoplanetary" CD package comes with a documentary booklet featuring a 16-page executive summary of the mission's objectives and a detailed profile of the planet's geophysical characteristics, as well as its inherent dangers. Digital Booklet also included with download.
It offers a unique listening and reading experience that integrates sound orchestration with speculative dark fiction to present a quasi-scientific account of future possibilities rendered in sound.
Recommended for fans of cinematic dark ambient and spoken word.. $13.50

The album "Disease", originally released in 1996 by Art Konkret, is no exception to the rule. It is Death Industrial at its best - grim, terrifying and ghastly. The album is bulit like a psychological horror soundtrack, not as harsh as its predecessor - "Beyond The Shadow", but it is darker and will definitely crawl under the listener's skin. The 2018 version is not a mere reissue, though, as it is completed with a brand new 10-minute-long track, which includes additional sound by John Stillings (Steel Hook Prostheses). Mastered by Henrik Nordvargr Björkk (MZ.412). Presented in a 6-panel digipak with artwork by Kellerman Design.. $12.67

No Festival of Light - Divide Et Impera 2CD ( Eibon: NFOL105)
No Festival Of Light is the best kept secret in the annals of dark industrial Swedish tradition. For decades Fredrik Bergström's guilty pleasure lingered at the backyard of the world to sporadically cast a shadow of minimalist ritualism and evaporate in enchanted air again. An unorthodox approach and such deceptively simple music itself stirs all the senses to trigger morbid addiction, affection and unconscious share in blasphemous conspiracy. The 2CD set manifests rhythmic and ambient mind-numbing versatility of the project ranging from the debut "Divide Et Impera" (1994) mixed by Jouni Havukainen / In Slaughter Natives, to cryptic "Tape 1" (1996) originally released by Slaughter Productions, to various arcane compilation tracks featured on labels like Abyss, Slaughter, Thaglasz, Art Concept, to rare unreleased two live sets in Belgium and the USA in 1998/99. "Within the pleasures of the flesh, rests the Salvation of the human spirit". For the lovers of early Cold Meat Industry and Slaughter Productions era, projects like Morthound, Ordo Equilibrio or Kranivm. A 2CD edition in a 4-panel gloss-laminated Digipak in edition of 300 copies. Co-released with Eibon Records.. $14.67

Vittore Baroni, Maurizio Bianchi, Piermario Ciani, Daniele Ciullini - Musical Surgery ( Old Europa Café: LUCE057)
From the archives of the Florentine studio SOUND RECYCLING TERMINAL comes this singular finding, an experiment in "sound surgery" originally assembled in February 1982 by DANIELE CIULLINI (aka OXIDIZED MAN) with audio materials sent by Maurizio Bianchi (M.B.) and the founders of the TRAX multimedia project, the journalist and mail artist VITTORE BARONI (musically active as Lieutenant Murnau) and the graphic artist-photographer PIERMAIO CIANI (Mind Invaders, Great Complotto, etc.) who died in 2006.
At the time, MUSICAL SURGERY was reproduced on cassette in four copies only, one for each author, so the work has remained unpublished until now, the product of a sort of "supergroup" of prime movers extremely active in the Italian post-industrial scene and in the “cassette network” of early 80s.
The five original tracks, now assembled in one unique track of about half an hour, merge the cold industrial-apocalyptic electronics typical of early M.B. production, experiments of pulsating electronic minimalism attempted in those years by CIANI (tape recorders incorrectly connected, backwards tapes, etc.), BARONI’s maniacal rants and the analogical drone-ambient textures by CIULLINI, who in the mixing also used field recordings and samplings of various kinds.
The "spoken word" fragment used here, originally written by Baroni for his performance "N" held in 1981 in Reggio Emilia as part of the event La perdita del centro, will then be reworked in the cassette album The Cop Killers The CD (mixed by Ciullini and Baroni in May 1982 and published in the same year by TRAX), a six-handed work by Baroni, Ciullini and the British musician M.A. Phillips of which this rediscovered collaborative work at distance can be considered a sort of prototype and general rehearsal.
MUSICAL SURGERY, will be co-released by OLD EUROPA CAFE and LUCE SIA.A limited edition of 300 copies in a cardboard folder with vintage original graphics by the four authors.. $13.50

Abscheu - Pretense LP ( Unrest Productions: UNPRLP18)
6 tracks, all with a discernible tension and volatility running throughout, bringing about near-frightening intensities through shifting zones of frayed, heavy electronics, deadening rhythmic elements, and lurching, mechanized loops. Swarms of highly charged drones and nauseating, flanged vocals add a threatening sense of hostility and aggression,
"From Europe to Middle East via Sub-Saharan Africa, Abscheu have been watching some of the most determined acts of violence. Studying how bloodthirsty groups wash their hands by adorning their motivation with divine command. Seeing zealots justify murderous wrath by invoking their favorite sacred book whenever necessary. A self-proclaimed court where justice is selectively rendered. A confusing purgatory where hatred is given a legitimacy. A sneaky trickery designed to mislead one's enemies in the maze of one's lies. «Pretense» is the exploration of that system from various perspectives. «Pretense» is an unquestionable judgment before men – definitely not before that thing they call god.". $20.67

Dødsmaskin - Ingenting CD ( Cyclic Law: 106thCycle)
“Ingenting” was first finalised in June 2015 and shrouded in almost complete secrecy. Being their original debut it somehow never had a proper release, untill now. When contemplating a human face through the eyes of an x-ray machine, the void it projects back can be unsettling. This cranial frame, stripped of life; a reminder of the finite frontiers that constrain our transitory institutions, and the nothingness that precedes and succeeds them. However, while we occupy this bodily state, nothingness is detached neither from comprehension nor experience. Rather, it is interacting; mirrored in the human inclination to manifest its imprint time and time again through a continuous spiral of intellectual and material destruction. And its catalyst is also a testament to its paradox: the human impulse to escape it by any means necessary. “Ingenting” is a well balanced introduction to the core elements of the Dødsmaskin’s sound where extreme measures were used in order to capture the right physics sonically, such as having a 1000-ton freight train powering over recording devices, the process was an intense undertaking and the resulting harsh sonic textural walls that collide with more atmospheric passages are some of the most unique we’ve heard. Mastered at Black Knoll Studio by Rafael Anton Irisarri.. $14.33

False Mirror - SIGINT CD ( Malignant: TumorCD86)
It’s been 8 long years since the release False Mirror’s highly acclaimed Derelict World, and SIGINT marks the return of one of the giants of the dark ambient genre. Thematically centered around the gathering of intelligence via the interception of signals, SIGINT is an hour long creation of desolate beauty and isolated intricacies, where droning textural flow is incorporated with floating wasteland debris, distant transmissions, and fluid layers of climatic tones. Like all False Mirror’s work, the attention to detail and subtleties are unparalleled, striking a balance between field recordings and synthetic sounds in a perfectly conceptualized harmony of calming warmth and barren isolation.
In digipak, with 12 page “cryptographic manual” to decrypt a hidden message in track 10 that can be used to unlock a bonus track.. $10.67

Encephalophonic - Exhuming the Perversion 2CD ( Industrial Recollections: IR-EETP01)
Industrial Recollections idea was to reissue sold out items, most often tapes, that Freak Animal felt necessary to reissue, but didn’t want to make main label discography too fragmented. Many such an small and obscure releases, that they are unlikely to be released by almost anybody else. Unlike plenty of releases that have already existing cult status and following - and therefore potential market. What exactly is "industrial" and what exactly constitutes "old enough" to warrant reissue, is very loose concept. Under Industrial Recollections label has happened reissues from 80's and 90's. Musically, anything vaguely rooted to traditions of industrial. From industrial noise to power electronics and experimental works. Now, with Encephalophonic tape re-issues, IR takes quite a big leap forward. It has been question I have been pondering - why would one need to wait 20 or 30 years to validate necessity of reissue? 2010-2011 when these early Encephalophonic tapes were done, is yet to reach even 10 years anniversary. Yet being unavailable for long and debut tape being nearly impossible to get even when it came out, to me, it was very clear that I rather put out 8 year old great noise tape, than remain too fixed to idea to only dig the long gone history. Encephalophonic as project is still very much active. It has progressed from early days, yet the core remains the same. What makes me consider Encephalophonic fit to industrial tradition is its content. Dark and abusive nature of recordings set it far away from heart warming jams and free-noise energy blasts. Of course, there is energy and ripping power, but it is razor sharp, cold and cruel and filled with destructive feel. Combined with negative feel of sound samples emerging between some tracks, band steps away from usual spirit known from Japanese harsh noise. While music nods towards masters of Japanese noise, Kazumoto Endo, Pain Jerk and such, Encephalophonic stays away from contemporary cut-up in means of technological methods. Lack of post-production and computer editing, keeps sound of physical and full of flesh and blood. Double CD with booklet including reproductions of all original artworks of tapes and added sleaze.. $15.67

Anemone Tube - The Three Worlds: Forget Heaven CD ( Laesencia: LER019)
Far reaching pleasures will be at hand – Anemone Tube reveals a series of three CDs entitled “The Three Worlds: Allegory of Vanity / Forget Heaven / Vanity of Allegory”, referencing a cosmological treatise on the universe from the Theravada Buddhism of the 14th century, the subject matter of which is the description of three levels of existence of all beings and mythical creatures.
This extensive retrospective release contains selected tracks from various tapes released between 1997 and 1999 - mostly rare and unavailable today - as well as yet unreleased tracks recorded between 1997 and 2013, a.o. outtakes from the “Death Over China” recordings, handpicked and recontextualized by Anemone Tube, representing the project’s roughest and most atmospheric material up to date, ranging from depressive ritual experimental ambient over dark rhythmic industrial soundscapes to whirlwind noise. Sharply mastered by Hunter Barr for a powerful, contemporary sound, each CD comes in a 6-panel digifile featuring beautiful photography by Dario Lehner
“The Three Worlds” is a work about transience on many levels, perfectly elucidated in the Buddhist Sutra “Far Reaching Pleasures”, “The three worlds are transient like clouds in autumn / Birth and death of all beings unfold like a dance / Their lives rush away like a mountain stream / Vanish like lightning in the sky”, which serves as the contextual framework for the CD series and is translated in the most beautiful and poetic fashion with three painstakingly arranged photographic scenes based on vanitas symbolism of old masters’ paintings.
“Forget Heaven” addresses more celestial matters and shows the artist playing with soap bubbles (a classic vanitas symbol as well, a hint at the fleetingness of the moment) – reflections of light in the dark create the image of a starry sky, the universe. The CD features the entirety of the “Forget Heaven“ cassette release, plus three compilation and two unreleased tracks. The sound spectrum is more immense, from aggravating noise to ethereal, ritual beauty.. $12.67

Anima Nostra - Atraments CS ( Cloister Recordings: Crus33)
Cassette version of Atraments, which includes a bonus demo version of "Solemn Majesty". Pro-dubbed chrome tapes and limited to 100 copies.
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. Cassette layout by Eric henderson.. $7.00

Leila Abdul-Rauf - Diminution LP ( Cloister Recordings: Crus31)
The follow up to Leila A. Rauf’s 2015 highly acclaimed debut Insomnia, Diminution sees the Bay Area based, multi-instrumentalist take a more stripped-down approach to her uniquely haunting and shadowy soundscapes. While retaining a firm grasp on the feeling of urban loneliness and early morning solitude, Diminution’s tracks are generally longer than previous works and feel more spacious and open, where sparse melodies and gentle textural flow meet ethereal choral vocals, distant trumpet, delicate guitar, and luminous, yet melancholy drones and warm tonal drift. Another spellbinding work from Leila for those seeking solace in quiet and introspective music residing just on edge of consciousness.
Black vinyl edition. Limited to 150 copies. Full color jacket and two-sided insert featuring the masterful artwork of Matthew Jaffe. Layout and Design by James Livingston.. $16.00

STROMSTAD - New Devoted Human CS ( Cloister Recordings: Crus32)
Few names imply mind-bending, forward thinking heavy electronics like Finnish stalwarts STROM.ec, and with every release, they seem to further stretch the boundaries of what can be a pretty rigid genre, and navigate realms never before seen or heard. Similar things can be said of Norwegian atmospheric heavy weight and Malignant staple, Kristoffer Oustad, whose particular strain of dark ambient and post-industrial soundscapes are incredibly dynamic, at times surreal and cinematic, other times more driving and heavy, but all with a recognizable, highly emotive touch. Put the two together, and you get the debut of their collaborative project, STROMSTAD. Spread out over 8 tracks, this is a dizzying exploration of sound and vocal fury, where mechanized pulsations, writhing frequency oscillations, and grinding machine loops meet stretches of drifting darkness and touches of musicality, suggestive of a future that’s dystopic and bleak on one hand, yet highly innovative and revolutionary on the other. Featuring a guest appearance by Grutle Kjellson from the mighty Enslaved, mastering by Nordvargr, paintings by Jeff Klena and design by Alonso Urbanos.. $7.00

C.3.3. - Ballad of Reading Gaol – The Cacophonietta CD ( Cold Spring: CSR255CD)
C.3.3. is a personal project from Paul Jamrozy, co-founder of original industrial agitators TEST DEPT..
The work is inspired by the real life experience of Her Majesty’s Prison Reading. Tracing the history of the location through to the present current political and social situation, evoking the harsh realities of Victorian and modern day Britain.
Reminiscent of the finest mid-era TEST DEPT., such as “Gododdin” or “Pax Britannica”, with heavy percussion, strings, and strident vocals.
The title C.3.3. is drawn from the cell number where the literary figure Oscar Wilde was incarcerated in Reading Gaol under gross indecency charges. C.3.3. was the pseudonym used for the publication “The Ballad of Reading Gaol”, a poem based on the execution of a fellow inmate.
This sonic rendition draws upon the writings of Wilde’s poem and the horrors of prison life for a condemned man, as a metaphor for the universal predicament of all humankind.
Remastered with 2 bonus tracks, featuring TEST DEPT. and presented in a 6-panel digipak.. $12.50

Dødsmaskin - Fiende CD ( Cyclic Law: 107thCycle)
On their latest album the Norwegian duo pushes some of the hard hitting, mechanically textured aesthetics of their previous release “Fullstendig Brent” to the forefront. A dystopian commentary on the risks inherent to the antagonistic nature of humankind, and how the overwhelming and uncertain scope of Industry 4.0 - of progressively more powerful technology and strong AI - may end up amplifying those risks beyond human control. Given this conceptual framework, Dødsmaskin have aimed to develop a sound palette that shifts between both droning and pulsating brutality that represents unstoppable forces in motion and bleak atmospheres that denote an age of growing futility and - ultimately - self-inflicted extinction. Mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri at Black Knoll Studio, NY.. $14.33

Inade - The Nine Colours of the Threshold CD ( LOKI: LOKI68)
With the all new album after 9 years, Inade return with another work that indicates a codifying of their sound world full of mysterious design, unspoken secrets and dreams of ancient origin.
The immersive arrangements and haunting voices supported by crackling electronics painting a dark and earthly picture. Infinite eons have passed through the labyrinthine hierarchy of deep fusing drones, tectonic soundscapes, percussions and ritual instruments - sonically sculpturing of that which lies deeper than matter, time and space.
The intriguing tone colour on 'The Nine Colours Of The Threshold‘ is generally one of heroic majesty, a kind of epic intimacy, with light and sparkling fragments. It is the narrow, hidden tracks that lead back to our lost homeland, what contains the solution to the last mysteries is not the ugly scar that life´s rasp leaves on us, but the fine, almost invisible writing that is engraved on our body.. $12.50

Inner Vision Laboratory - Relics CD ( Winter-Light: WIN017)
'Inner Vision Laboratory' releases his new studio album 'Relics' on our Winter-Light label.
The inspiration for this album came from different science-fiction and post-apocalyptic books and movies, but also from the artists’ personal thoughts regarding mankind’s condition.
‘Relics’ is a musical illustration for the very distant future, where humanity has failed in its progress and moved to total annihilation. Relics are the only things humanity has left behind. Other higher advanced civilisations will come to visit our now desolate planet to collect these relics; these fading tokens of the past. They come to visit the Museum of Savages, who destroyed their own habitat and rendered their once beautiful planet uninhabitable.
'Inner Vision Laboratory' is a musical project brought into existence by the Polish artist/musician Karol Skrzypiec. Created in March 2005, stylistically the project qualifies as industrial dark ambient. Nevertheless, it also includes elements of ethnic music, classical music, et al.
'Inner Vision Laboratory' has released a series of albums on labels such as Rage In Eden, Zoharum, and Beast Of Prey, collaborating with other artists such as Hoarfrost, Roto Visage and Nepenthe. His other works include the highly acclaimed 'Anywhere Out Of This World', 'Perpetua' and 'Austeros'.. $11.67

Rapoon - Offworld OP1 Equs: Mercury Rising 2 CD ( Winter-Light: WIN018)
In celebration of his 25th Silver Anniversary, Winter Light are releasing a trilogy of new work from Rapoon entitled ‘The Mercury Rising Trilogy’. The Mercury Rising Trilogy will comprise of three brand new studio albums, all with exclusive material. The albums will bring a new feel to Robin’s work, that of a more off world spacious feel, jazzy in parts with a ceremonial thread running throughout. Each album interlinked by this feel and theme, as the titles suggest, but with each one still having it’s own unique identity.
Here we present to you the second installment of the Mercury Rising Trilogy - 'Offworld OP1 Equs'. The trilogy began with 'Sanctus Equinox', released through Winter-Light in November 2017. The journey now continues.......
Every 150 years the moons align and block out the light entirely from the small inhabited planet of Offworld OP1. Too cold even for the androids to survive they move en-masse to the farthest moon Celios and wait out the winter in the relative warmth.
The ice crystals in the nearby gas planets rings reflect the meager light of the far sun and throw rainbows down to the surface of Celios… a sign…
The androids have built their shelters in the shape of the six pointed star with a circular perimeter representing the outer rings of home system Saturn and the sun that moved.
Looking back along the aligned moons they diminish in intensity until Offworld is just a shadow, a memory. Waiting. It will take six months before the the first light shines again on Celios and another six before the androids will return. Celebrations await that return…. for now there is only the slow resignation of winter and a promise of it’s end.
Spacious synth sweeps glide through the air, whilst icy piano tones play out, filling the spaces with crystallized sounds. Drums crack and fall away, a lo-fi saxophone plays a somber song to itself, as alien voices raised to the skies chant the mantras of a temporarily dislodged Offworld race of sentient beings.. $11.67

Taphephobia - Ghostwood CD ( Cyclic Law: 103rdCycle)
New deeply introspective album by Norway’s Taphephobia.

In the vein of his previous Cyclic Law release “Escape From The Mundane Self”, we are submerged in a skillful combination of lush ambient guitar passages, sonic abstractions and processed flute. “Ghostwood” is a most personal hymn to experiencing the solace of the northern forest.

Channeled throughout are primordial sonorities to alter ones deeper psyche, a spiritual ascent unifying with the whole, the elemental cosmic life force that transpierces us, to the monad of creation.. $14.33

Dead Melodies - The Foundation of Ruins CD ( Cryo Chamber: Cryo094)
Dead Melodies is back with his second album on Cryo Chamber, The Foundations of Ruin. Following on from his last album, Legends of the Wood we return to the isle of mist and dig deeper into the narrative.
"The wrought iron gate creaks open to the overgrown driveway. Up ahead, flickers of lightning make out the hazy silhouette of a large house veiled in a dense fog. Shelter! Finally, somewhere to rest your head after that terrifying ordeal in the wood.
The house, a ruinous crumbling remnant of better days stands lonesome in the unruly grounds; like a keeper bestowed with time itself. An ornate wooden door hangs broken on its hinge, the windows cracked and vines creep wildly from every crevice like tendrils from the netherworld. Something definitely feels wrong here, but with hours till dawn and the relentless storm wailing through the surrounding trees, the will to survive the night defeats all reason to fear this shady forgotten sanctuary.
Stepping inside the once stately ruin, the great hall teems with decay and an age of sedimentary dust covers every surface; any remnants of life that once knew this place are long gone. Doors and stairwells stem off in all directions. With a creaking silence and a deathly stillness consuming the air, you contemplate which way to go. But then, a noise… is someone there? The temperature drops and a familiar chill runs down your spine…."
Recommended for fans of soundtrack like experiences and cinematic dark ambient.. $12.99

Jugernaut of a split between two leading US power electronics artists.
Mania side recorded and mixed during the same sessions as 2017s "Little Pieces Of Violence" on Phage Tapes; which, if you have heard it, you know it was one of the best titles last year and one of the highlight's of Mania's legendary output.Deterge side focuses on 2016's Pulse Nightclub shooting which has initiated a longstanding debate on gun control in the US.

Offerbeest - Afrika CD ( Malignant: TumorCD119)
Shipping June 20th, 2018. Maurice De Jong has never shied away from exploring the darker side of humanity, but for the latest project from the mastermind behind Gnaw Their Tongues and Aderlating, he figuratively journeys to its heart. Offerbeest moves away from the stygian blackness and infernal churn typically associated with his work, but delivers its own slice of nightmarish qualities, deftly capturing all the strife, turmoil, and tribalism in a 7 track homage to the dark continent. With percolating frequencies, writhing beds of acrid, electrical buzz and vocals that spit in your face with a heartless and alarming hostility, “Afrika” feels reckless and unsettled. Recorded strictly with analogue gear with no samples or laptop, it is perhaps the closest Maurice has come to a true heavy electronics project. Lmtd 300 copies in digisleeve, with 12 page A5 zine.. $10.00

Templum N.R. - Spectrum CCCXC: Transitio CD ( Aural Hypnox: AHUE05)
This is the very first official release of Templum N.R. The work was initiated already back in 2005, but it was not until February 2015 that the final touches were given in the secret Chamber 817.07., built on archaic crossroads.
The musical and visual material of Templum N.R. comes from the very depths of the Templum members; their travels in the Spheres of Otherness are presented in ‘Spectrum CCCXC: Transitio’ through obscure electronics, synthetic drones, odd rhythmic patterns, pulsing melodies and various manipulated field recordings dating back over a decade.The intention of these two, long-lasting psychedelic movements is to travel deep inside the subconsciousness and foster understanding of the Formless Sacrifice. Where this work resounds, the Otherness is unleashed. A meeting with the Guardian of the Veil awaits.
The album is enclosed in a customized and screen printed Sublunar series cardboard covers, including four two-sided insert cards. Limited to 300 copies.. $14.33

Templum N.R. - Spectrum DCXCIII: Poison Portals CD ( Aural Hypnox: AHUE07 CD)
On one hazy night I met an elderly man sitting in an old wooden chair. He was wearing an elegant white suit and I could not help noticing the simple white lines in his fore- and middle fingers. In the remaining fingers he had circles. The pitch-black sand of the shore absorbed all the light from the sky. Regardless, I saw fifty-meter-high waves crashing down behind him – and at the same time, they remained static.
‘Spectrum DCXCIII: Poison Portals’ has a luring, fatal beauty of its own. Redirecting, throbbing analog electronics, slowly swallowing droning textures and sinuous rhythms are accompanied with eternal, eerie melodies – all reeking of the primordial pleasures. Obscure radio transmissions and telepathic resonances are emerging from the parallel universes and will sink you even deeper into the ignorance of your very self or towards the ravishing beauty of transformation.
The other worlds and realities are present both in sound and vision; A triple-bladed iron dagger, brought to this world through trancework. Assume its form, pass the Poison Portals, and continue until the opposites intermingle and known territories vanish beneath the colossal waves.
This CD version also includes the previously limited ‘The Mass Rattle’ ep with tracks ‘The Viscous Tomb Liquid’ and a Telepath Remix of the ‘I am His Sacrifice’.
The album is enclosed in a customized and screen printed Sublunar series cardboard covers, including five two-sided insert cards. Limited to 300 copies.. $14.33

Templum N.R. - T.o.V. Improvisations XCII-XCIII CD ( Aural Hypnox: AHUE06CD)
The musical improvisations of T.o.V. derive from Umbra-visitation sessions held in the Temple of Mercurial Orgies and Room Luna Lake between 2014 and 2015. The concept of the album has been evolving within the minds of the Templum N.R. members for the past twenty years, so perhaps it is not proper to talk of this as their latest release. Linear time and Templum N.R. do not walk hand in hand and their rituals cannot be measured in hours but in years.
Compared to their previous release ‘Spectrum CCCXC: Transitio’, this album is based on a more analog-organic approach than an analog-digital-synthetic. The four echoing Hymns of Otherness are here to awake the ghosts dwelling within; join the Stagnant Dance and meet the Carcass of Formations – the shrieks are heard from beyond.
This CD version includes a ‘Grave Gravitation: Transitio XCV’ ep which came earlier exclusively as a part of ‘T.o.V. Improvisations XCII-XCIII’ special edition. Two tracks of pure oscillating power – minimalistic, wrathful modular drones, where multitude of hidden harmonics meets a choral of transforming frequencies.
The album is enclosed in a customised and screen printed Sublunar series cardboard covers, including six two-sided insert cards. Limited to 300 copies.. $14.33

New Arrivals for the Week of June 10 2018

Chöd ‎ - Bardo Thodol 2CD ( Old Captain: OCCD34)
The Tibetan word "Chöd" means "to cut off' or "to slay", represented in icons by the victory banner and ritual knife. In Chöd, an adept symbolically offers the flesh of their body in a form of a tantric feast. The skin of the practitioner's body represents surface reality or maya: it is cut from bones, the true reality of the mindstream. The similarities between the Chöd ritual and the prototypical initiation of a shaman are obvious, although there is an essential difference between the two: the shaman's initiation is involuntary, whilst a Chod(pa) chooses to undertake the ritual death of a Chod ceremony as a will. Traditionally, Chöd is regarded as challenging, potentially dangerous and inappropriate practice for meditating practitioners. An external Chöd is to wander in fearful places where there are deities and demons, whereas an internal Chöd offers one's own body as food to the deities and demons: the Ultimate Chöd is to realize the true nature of the mind and cut through ignorance. Enter the charnel fields of the obscure monk of the Chöd project to witness the offering of a corpse to the vultures of the tradition that inspires terror. The object of ignorance, the root of samsara, which is holding the "I" as truly existent must be killed as the inner enemy, delusions, and the way of the dharma practice: to achieve liberation, ultimate happiness, cessation of all the sufferings, rebirth and death. Pure occult Evropean tradition in flesh and bones to hurt you. Filed alongside Zero Kama or Ain Soph. Raw, elemental, primordial 22 tracks / 100 minutes of the original ritual retrieved from 1996-1999 DAT-tapes. The layout is executed by Mauro Berchi (Eibon Records). A 300 2CD edition of Chöd's legacy in a 4-panel matte-laminated Digipak.. $14.67

Coil presents Black Light District - A Thousand Lights in a Darkened Room CD ( Infinite Fog: CBLD01)
Re-issue of a 1996 on Eskaton, this release сontains two bonus tracks: 11 is previously unreleased; 12 was previously released on Eskaton vinyl editions
Tucked into the middle of their discography, this album is often overlooked in ranking Coil's output. This might be their peak. With the acid house experiment fully rinsed from their system, but before donning tinfoil hats for the Time Machine-era recordings, they created Black Light District: dense, atmospheric, textured, and utterly unique compositions that showcased their considerable creativity finally matched to modern, high-fidelity recording. When someone asks "where do I start with Coil?", this is a crucial early step.. $14.67

Tusen Ar Under Jord - Sandhavens Genklang LP ( Verlautbarung: Mitt39)
Verlautbarung are proud to present a series of exotic aural vignettes, like the dim phantasms populating the minds of Victorian armchair ethnographers.

The murmur of a hermit's unbroken wake, huddled by the doorway to the proper crypt of Khefren. All this framed by the ever swirling monomania of discordant flutes, vague swirling melodies obscured amidst incessant ethno-percussion and loops.
Edition of 221 copies in brown cardboard disco bags with mounted risographic print and handstamped linen detail.. $10.00

One is for infliction / Two is for inversion / Three is Immaculate.
Catalonian Death Industrial duo DE·TA·US·TO·AS blend together ancestral prayers and highly corrosive textures in order to create a deathly sound based upon soil, blood and scent.
«The Immaculate Triumvirate» is the third ritual, based on the progressive completion of the Four Knives Path: Zealotry, scourging liturgies, repentance, the pursuit of purging the self and the strife to crawl towards the state of ascension.
«The Immaculate Triumvirate», composed by four new tracks, involves the return of the death industrial / ritual duo DE·TA·US·TO·AS, after the self-released «Plunging Four Knives» demo CD and «The Inverted Halls» Cassette (Bestiarie 2016). Grimy, filthy death industrial at its finest.. $18.00

Leila Abdul-Rauf - Diminution CD ( Malignant: TumorCD109)
The follow up to Leila Abdul-Rauf’s 2015 highly acclaimed debut Insomnia, Diminution sees the Bay Area based, multi-instrumentalist take a more stripped-down approach to her uniquely haunting and shadowy soundscapes. While retaining a firm grasp on the feeling of urban loneliness and early morning solitude, Diminution’s tracks are generally longer than previous works and feel more spacious and open, where sparse melodies and gentle textural flow meet ethereal choral vocals, distant trumpet, delicate guitar, and luminous, yet melancholy drones and warm tonal drift. Another spellbinding work from Leila for those seeking solace in quiet and introspective music residing just on edge of consciousness. In 4 panel digipak with stunning artwork by Matthew Jaffe, layout by Kristoffer Oustad.. $7.00

Siberian band NYTT LAND presents its new epic musical canvas. Working with the same unchanging 4 band-members, the musicians continue to revive the true magical sound of the Ancient North.
OĐAL...
HERITAGE...
PATH TO THE ROOTS...
Oðal is inspired by the traditional music of the indigenous peoples of Siberia, the Old Icelandic epic and the atmosphere of classic Norwegian black metal.This time the album was recorded without using samples; all parts of the instruments were performed live. All songs were recorded and mixed in one of the technical quality best Russian studios, "Radio Sibir", which strongly affected the sound quality. All the sounds of nature were recorded in western Siberia and northern Norway.
For the first time the 4-year-old son of Natalia and Anatoly, Yuri Pakhalenko, took part. By this they emphasize the concept of the album - heritage.
As in the previous album, Fimbulvinter (CSR234CD), Oðal features the traditional Siberian overtone singing technique "kargyraa", but the overtone singing by vocalist Natalia Pakhalenko gives a special character to the sound. This is very unique, since this technique is a almost exclusively a male singing practice due to its physicality.So, it's time to start the path to the roots...Presented in a 6-panel digipak.. $12.33

Atrium Carceri, Cities Last Broadcast and God Body Disconnect collaborates on this foggy noir album.
The invitation came in a cinnamon scented envelope. It had been years since your last visit to the hotel, before the headlines of murder had shut it down. Was it re-opened after all these years?

Miles to Midnight is a Dark Jazz Ambient album with a Lynchian Noir feel: A hotel trapped between two worlds and a detective with a traumatized past.
God Body Disconnect's live jazz drums and cinematic wall-of-sound builds the foundation of the mysterious hotel. Cities Last Broadcast brings ghostly tape loops and melodies stuck in time.

Himukalt - Knife Through the Spine LP ( Malignant: TumorLP116)
As admirers of Himukalt’s four previous tape releases, Malignant is pleased to present the first full length LP from this promising, Nevada based, female fronted act. The project of the enigmatic Ester Kärkkäinen, Knife Through the Spine delivers a steady cascade of abstract sounds, festering with grinding pneumatic throb, coarse frequency blasts and sputtering electronic oscillations, with spliced snippets of processed, flanged vocals and a general sense of social anxiety and disaffection. There’s something uniquely old school and primitive at work here, capturing the claustrophobic, unsettled and fragmented sound of early Illusion of Safety or mid-late ‘80s industrial on a whole, contemporizing it, and filling it in with an obsessive, post-mortem feel. A unique and challenging take on heavy electronics for fans of Puce Mary, She Spread Sorrow, Atrax Morgue. Lmtd 200 copies.. $18.67

The tracks switch between dark and light and you can feel the influence of his recent Eastern travels, crackling in the air, in the field recordings, in the synth sweeps and patterns and in the sonic landscapes that the album creates and carries you along. Make no mistake, this is not an album filled with the chants of Hindu monks and the busy clatter of every day Indian life. It is an intensely spiritual album, which for its duration will take you along the same paths traversed by the artist himself.. $13.77

Truly a masterpiece, this album is a conveyance to starkly different, maybe even unique states of mind - hypnotic, forceful and savage. Highly recommended.. $10.00

Nam-Khar - Secret Essence-Sangwa Dupa CD ( Winter-Light: WIn016)
Nam-Khar is a Ritual/Drone collective that utilises various ethnic instruments and synthesised material within its works. What Nam-Khar offers up here are nine very different pieces of ritualistic music, each with the common thread of bringing you to a place of both focus and isolation. The subtle use of traditional instrumentation creates small vacuous pockets for the listener to move into, which are then juxta-positioned with slightly harsher, more industrial sounds. These are then all neatly sewn together with ice cold drones, warm bass sounds and synth sweeps.
With its short stabs and metallic sounds, the music can sometimes feel cold, unsettling and edgy. Tracks such as Shidak (re-shaped) could easily soundtrack the nightmare segment from a film, where the drones pull you stumbling through dark corridors, treading uncertain footsteps with a feeling of anxiety, never knowing what shapes are hiding out in the shadows, or what lies just around the corner. But the other side to the music from Nam-Khar lies in the warm, rich textured sounds and the drones that slowly build in density. Each aspect complimenting one other to bring a rich varied sound to the whole album and drawing all the tracks together.
"Secret Essence/Sangwa Dupa" is a sonic journey to the archaic energies/powers in Tibetan culture, which in the end, are not to be seen as being separated from one’s own mind.. $13.99

Philipp Münch - Greyscale CD ( Ant-Zen: Act375)
While listening to 'Greyscale' a dramatic change concerning the lyrics is instantly obvious: they are now primarily in German, pointing at Philipp Münch's personal musical roots in the legendary project Ars Moriendi including famous co-members such as Andrea Börner (Morgenstern), Andreas Schramm (Asche) and Tim Kniep (Synapscape). Ars Moriendi's unique mixture of power noise rhythms, dark ambient spheres and often aggressively performed German vocals lay the foundation for the updated conceptual turn on 'Greyscale' as well as the fortified use of acoustic instrumentation besides omnipresent electronics. A project that also leaves one's mark here is Philipp's alter ego Rasputeen which combines minimal electro with headstrong and often time-critical lyrics. Assimilating these influences and giving them a contemporary update, 'Greyscale' displays the topical manifestation of Philipp Münch as an artist and as a musician - both as he is now and as he was, simultaneously.. $13.99

Strom Noir - Mountains Become Machines CD ( Winter-Light: WIn014)
Emil Maťko, the man behind Strom Noir, hails from Bratislava, Slovakia. Since 2008, Emil has released around 15 albums to date on a variety of different formats, as well as a number of singles and also contributed to several compilation albums. His music can possibly be best described as guitar and loop based ambient, with a melancholic feel to it. Strom Noir builds up intricate layers of sound using mostly only electric and acoustic guitars, effected through pedals.
The artist himself describes the thoughts and processes behind the recording of ‘Mountains Become Machines‘.....
‘The beginning of the recording process is dated back to the second half of 2013, that time with the intention to come up with the full-length release consisting of more “stand-alone” tracks built significantly on acoustic guitar, in most cases, heavily transmuted. As I used to set the recorder always in a way that it recorded associated sounds from the recording room as well, recordings are more complex and have some accidental/random aspects; on the other hand, the overall feeling is a little bit lo-fi. That’s the process how the tracks, I would label as the core of the album, were basically recorded – the beginning of spring, mountains become machines, sám na vrchole hory (alone on the mountain top), where late the birds sang and čistota (purity).. $13.77

Abjection Ritual - Soul of Ruin, Body of Filth CD ( Malignant: TumorCD113)
With their second full length record for Malignant Records, Abjection Ritual emerge a far different beast, now fully untethered by genre constraints and conventions. Soul of Ruin, Body of Filth is a vast progression from past releases, incorporating guitars, bass and a live drummer into their arsenal, and in doing so have crafted a far more diverse, idiosyncratic vision, while retaining the atmospherics of heavy electronics and industrial ambience. Like a hybrid of Enemy of the Sun era Neurosis, early Swans, Godflesh, IRM and Khanate mixed with the caustic doom sludge of Halo and Indian, Soul of Ruin, Body of Filth is a crushingly visceral and eclectic journey that destroys preconceptions and leaves any true classifications in tatters.

Eidulon - Combustioni CD ( Malignant: TumorCD111)

Following an 11 year absence since his debut, Idolatriae, Eidulon returns a radically different entity. Whereas Idolatriae was haunting and minimal catacomb ambience, Combustioni is otherwise now a daunting, full on apocalyptic industrial, auditory excursion, complete with crushingly ominous brass chords, fearsome horn proclamations, organ, and doom filled atmospherics. Contributions of murderous, gnarled vocals courtesy of Nordvargr and Luca Soi, as well as caustic noise from Italian heavy electronic practitioners Naxal Protocol (ex-Cazzodio) add a powerful element, often cutting through a blaze of swelling tones and pneumatic percussive pummel, the only respite coming in the form of collaborative tracks with Kammarheit and Caul, which sees Eidulon returning to the foggy gloom and bleak isolationism that populated the debut. Collectively, it’s quite the provocative declaration, shattering genre barriers and setting the soundtrack for a world of incinerated cities, global plagues, and nuclear winters.
In ultra-luxurious 10 panel, Maltese Cross digipak.
"... a much more assertive apocalyptic industrial excursion. Eidulon’s sound has grown both in volume and in confidence: it demands attention and focus and proclaims itself from on high rather than insinuating itself from the background. It’s a vortex of dissonant brass, organ and electronically generated noise, still heavy on atmosphere, but brimming with the confidence of a conquering army" Heathen Harvest. $8.00

Entre Vifs - Ontologie CD ( Aussaat: Aussaat06)
New release from this long standing, "bruitiste" project, “Ontologie” offers a selection of extracts from their best recent sessions.
Each of these excerpts have been positioned so that they appear like bruitiste pieces, composed with care, even though all of these pieces are played live. Each time, it is a symphony of noises, extremely varied in intensity and frequency where one can distinguish, with precision, the sound detached from its original source. Entre Vifs’ noise generators are delicate and relatively small in size, but the sounds they produce through mechanical means are captured by electric guitar pickups and piezoelectric cells, then sent to a battery of amplifiers and homemade effect processors. The effect is quite massive, however it is not only a question of volume but a stereophonic depth effect where sonic masses seem to thicken and change continuously.. $13.00

Havenaire - Rabot CD ( Glacial Movements: GM031)
Havenaire is John Roger Olsson, a composer, musician and producer based in Stockholm. After many years performing as the melancholic pop act The Grand Opening, John Roger launched his new ambient electronic alias Havenaire early 2016. The debut album ’Tremolo’ was released on the US label Constellation Tatsu. Previously a guitarist and drummer by trade, now analog synthesizers dominates his sound. John Roger has always been interested in the process of making music and his sense for details is highly noticeable throughout the sound image.
Inspired by old photos taken 1910 by Fredrik Enquist (1885-1963), a Swedish geographer, the theme of his new album Rabot for the Italian label Glacial Movements came to form. Layer upon layer building up walls of sound pushing its way slowly through out the albums six songs. He treats his ambience with a pop sensibility, massive sound that sometimes climaxes in chorus-like parts, with distant piano notes echoing in the background. While other times the music falls apart and only leaves traces of its previous monumental washing sounds.. $13.99

Koufar - Phoenicianism CD ( Old Captain: OCCD36)
"Phoenicianism is an attempt to put on display the further identity crisis that many of the Lebanese face. Whether its over there, or here in America the confusion reigns supreme. Arab or Phoenician? Western or Eastern? Christian or Muslim? Identity often dictates politics, but with the Lebanese that is not consistent. Historically the only thing consistent is instability. An instability creating frictions that slowly grind against one another until the only eastern answer is reached, violence. Caught between Eastern values and Western luxuries.This album attempts to reflect all of this, while mixing in the artists own personal experiences of living a life of dualism. Misbaha beads or "Worry" beads? Christ or Shams? Allah or Mawt? Walk the edge of the boxcutters razor and make your offering." Remastered and accompanied with an exclusive material the CD is released in a full-colour matte-laminated 6-panel Digipak in edition of 300 copies. $14.33

Raison D'Etre - Prospectus I (Redux Version) 2CD ( Old Europa Café: OECD173)
Long time sold-out, finally the re-issue of this cult and seminal album!
A stunning blend of the modern soft gothic sound and the timeless chants of Catholic rituals. It is at once a beautiful sound, yet also filled with melancholy. Archaic layers of strings, bells and choirs intermingle with heavy drums and industrial loops creating an unsettling and threatening background atmosphere whilst spleen and sweetness forms the foreground.'Prospectus I' became the first CD album by Raison D'être, originally released in 1993 by Cold Meat Industry. In order to celebrate the 20th years anniversary it has now been made available as an enhanced 2CD album. All the sounds have been restored and re-recorded from source and all the tracks have been carefully mixed to maintain the true feeling and atmosphere of the original album but with the modern standards for high quality audio. 'Prospectus I' with related tracks can for the first time be experienced with superior audio quality and well balanced mixes. The first disc mirroring the tracks of the original album and the second disc contains a major selection of tracks from the 'Prospectus I' session previously available on the 'Lost Fragments' and 'Collective Archives' collections.. $15.77
