  AB INTRA – "Supremus" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - After 4 years since the last release, AB INTRA returns with a new album. "Supremus" is almost an hour of music placed in the widely-understood dark ambient genre. The album reflects a much more mature image of the artist who consciously creates a world of his own sound and vision.
The idea behind the album is the trial of creating an inner feeling, or impression, which is superior to others (Supremus comes from Latin and it means the highest, definite, dominant) which is in fact the effect of tuning one's mind and stepping outside the conditioned structures. It is a trial of placing consciousness in the sphere of pure sensations where the word becomes dominated by the sound, surrounded by the feeling, and the symbol and vision become the carrier of new meanings.
 
    AB INTRA – "Aura Imaginalis" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - Ab Intra is the Latin phrase for "on the inside". The term is quite appropriately connected with the project's music. The man behind it, Radoslaw Kaminski, claims that he seeks connection with his inner side by exploring the musical territories. Ab Intra is an illustration of the pictures that are created in the mind of the author. However, the form used enables the listeners to interpret the sounds in their own way. For fans of Inade, Raison d'Etre / Necrophorus, Herbst9, First Law, Endvra  
 

 

 

 

ABANDONED ASYLUM - "Derelicts of Distant Hope" digipack CD (Malignant)  - 11 euro -  Dark Ambient /  The album from Poland’s Abandoned Asylum and a welcome new entry into the Malignant family, fitting nicely alongside roster mates Rasalhague, Collapsar, and Phelios, in its ability to explore not only the outer edges of the cosmos, but deep into catacombs and dimly lit underground passages. Derelicts of Distant Hope is a collection of 7 tracks in total where shape shifting tonal swells are met with a host of nebulous textures, distant mechanical whir and industrial debris, and drifting atmospheric desolation, all expertly constructed and layered into a sprawling and expansive whole. With dark ambient, it’s not so much about re-inventing the wheel (which isn’t so easy to do given the genre’s defining characteristics) as much as it is about setting the mood, and Abandoned Asylum accomplishes that with great precision and skill. In 6 panel digipak, lmtd 500 copies.

  ALLERSEELEN - "Rauhe Schale" digipack CD (Ahnstern / Steinklang) "Rauhe Schale" ('Rough Shell') - 12 euro - is the brand new album from Austrian legends Allerseelen, which fascinates musically as well as visually. Everything moves and flows in a field of force between industrial, metal, folklore and pop. Lovers of bands like Nine Inch Nails, Einstürzende Neubauten, Laibach or Underworld could also fall in love with Allerseelen. Gerhard Hallstatt sometimes describes his music as Electronic Folklore or Apocalyptic Rock. But basically there is no real description for Allerseelen - all attempts to find an expression for their music may be valid for some time, yet lose their meaning after a couple of months or years. The songs were inspired by various magical mystery tours in Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy and Slovenia. Gerhard is assisted here by Dimo Dimov (Svarrogh, Miel Noir, Sturmpercht), Marcel P. (Sagittarius, Halgadom), Meri Tadic (Eluveitie) and Annabel Lee (Blood Axis). 70 mins. of music in a digipak with booklet.  
 

 

 

  ALLERSEELEN - "Hallstatt" digipack CD (Ahnstern / Steinklang) -  11 euro - The Allerseelen CD Hallstatt contains thirteen brand-new apocalyptic and passionate songs about love and death. This release - musically situated somewhere in a terra incognita between folklore, krautrock, metal and industrial music - is inspired by the beautiful Upper Austrian village Hallstatt which belongs to the world cultural heritage due to its amazing tomb findings of the Hallstatt culture and the unique ossuary with the painted skulls. The songs have lyrics and vocals by Gerhard Petak and R. N. Taylor from Changes. These apocalyptic industrial folklore songs about love and death were recorded in 2006 and 2007 at Haus zur letzten Latern. The voice of R.N. Taylor was recorded and engineered by Bob Ferbrache at Studio Absintheia.

ALL MY FAITH LOST... - "In A Sea, In A Lake, In A River... or in a teardrop" digipack CD 2009 (Infinite Fog Productions) - 4 euro -  "In a sea, in a lake, in a river ... ... or in a teardrop" was composed and recorded by "all my faith lost .." in its original line-up (Francis, Federico, Viola and Raffaella) as a first full album. The songs included in this album are inspired by spirits and fairies somehow releated to water. There is Grageth-Anoon, a fairy that can be seen near small lakes, there is Argea, that comes out from a river to tell your destiny and Anja, a fairy hidden in a tear. The sound of the album is just more acoustic than recent releases of the band and almost all songs are following the verse/chorus/verse rule. Acoustic and Classic guitars are the main instruments at the base of the compositions, flutes and delicate synths create, then, light arrangements giving that ethereal mood that will be more present in the following releases of the band. The vocal parts are equally divided among the male one (Federico) and the female ones (Viola and Raffaella) creating a perfect balance between heavenly/frail and profound/dark atmospheres. "In a sea, in a lake, in a river ... ... or in a teardrop" is a beatiful travel in the early steps of "all my faith lost ..." music.

 
   

AMYGDALA - "Memento Mori" CD (Dying Art Productions) - 10 euro - Originally released on the legendary (and now defunct) Hyperium label, this early work of dark Neoclassical / heavenly voices music is now made available again.

ANNIVERSARY CIRCLE - "Saturated Feathers" CD  (Mask of the Slave)  - 4 euro - "Of their ancestral catalysts I think the Banshees, Joy Division and The Danse Society make most sense, but as the creep atmosphere of this fine debut album sweeps over and around you it would make more sense to cast your mind back to the early 90’s and imagine a band in Twin Peaks forming. That same brooding sense of mystery, the same ghostly lightness of touch. "The missing link between Joy Division, Bauhaus & Killing Joke. You’re born, you live and you die in your beds. On each occasion there is cause for celebration or mourning. Always acted upon without question… When we die do we ask? Do we go to heaven, do we go to hell, or are we part of the atheist, agnostic, organic, Darwinist plan and go to earth. Turn to dust. Do we have a choice? Or are we in a perpetual cycle for all eternity. Anniversary Circle. An Existing living hell. CD came out in normal jewel case.

 
     

APOCRYPHOS - "The Prisoners Cinema" digipack CD - SOLD OUT!!

 
 

 

 

 

AQUAVOICE - "Grey"  ecopack CD  (Zoharum Records) - 10 euro - "Grey", the eighth album in the project's discography, contains 10 compositions covering musical territories than before. It's pure electronics, but a bit more experimental than simply ambient or Berlin school, as previosly associated with AUQAVOICE.
The formula and the sound might be different, but the creative method and approach has not changed. As always, Tadeusz Łuczejko treats synthesizers and computers as a sound source. But it's just the start of the puzzle, where all the elements, one by one, create music. Music which is inspired by films at once, literature as well. It is an outlet of emotions and acts as a sort of feedback.
The production is also vital when it comes to "Grey". The mastering has been done by Marcin Bociński, a well-known specialist in the field of electronic and avant-garde music. This 3-panel ecopack CD is limited to 500 copies.

ARDITI - "Leading the Iron Resistance"  Digipack CD  (Equilibrium Music) - 12 euro - Faithful to their path, Arditi return with "Leading the Iron Resistance". After the more orchestral approach found in their previous album "Omne Ensis Impera" (EQM020) and the use of folk elements that characterized the "Statues of God" EP (EQM027), on their fifth full-length recording the Swedish duo partially emphasize the Industrial side of their music, with the extensive use of loops and recurring themes adding a semi-obsessive tone to the Classical-themed militaristic sound-sculpturing.

 
 

 

 

ARDITI  - "Standards of Triumph" Digipak CD  (Equilibrium Music) - 12 euro -  Boasting the unique personality of this Swedish combo, "Standards of Triumph" taps further into the darker tones of Militaristic Neo-Classical ambiance that has become the band's trademark, resulting in their strongest effort so far - ever effective in their use of crushing orchestrations and evocative speeches, Arditi hereby drags the listener around muddy trenches, leaving aside overly pompous festive marches or alcohol fueled merry bunker songs which seem to have become the norm as of late, and casting an hypnotizing veil over the turmoil of warfare-inspired Industrial soundscapes.

 

 

ASTROWIND - "Kaidanovsky" digipack CD (Greytone) - 5 euro - Astrowind Sound designer from Latvia Kirils Lomunovs creates an amazing, deeply emotional and romantic music with help of vintage analog synthesizers and open-reel tape recorder. There is a feel of acroamatic escapism, there are these huge chords of hissing analogue synthesizers and you can even find this special kind of Slavonian melancholia (or Baltic, respectively) people use to rave about. Astrowind bring up a lot of references in their beautiful and, well, obsolete music. Astrowind Project got the harmonies and the sound to become one of the most interesting Baltic acts to emerge from a scene rich of innovative musicians (Muschraum, Joel Tammik, Selffish, to name just the most obvious).
 

 

 

 

  ATARAXIA - "Simphonia Sine Nomine" digipack CD  (Twilight Records) - 11 euro - ATARAXIA is an Italian neoclassical band who combine modern technology with archaic instrumentation. They describe their music as a cross "between sacred and profane, ethereal and neo-classical , contemporary and early music". They make researches into the European legends crossing the Greek and Latin myths. Their lyrics are written in many ancient and contemporary languages.
An unusual disk that may remind some of Dead Can Dance, Elijah's Mantle, or another neoclasical band of early 90`s. Simphonia Sine Nomine seems to be halfway between Gothic and Symphonic Rock. Vocalist Francesca Nicoli sings (in Italian and Latin) over synths, keyboards, electric and acoustic guitars, and occasionally drum machine. The music as a dark 'liturgical' gothic feel much of the time, with lots of minor keys and half-chanted singing, although there are a few brighter songs as well. A very enjoyable album, although it's not for everyone...
 
    ATARAXIA - "A Calliope... Collection" digipack CD (Pocket Records / Dying Art Productions) - 10 euro - Chinese edition of this compilation. Comes in digipak with alternative artwork. Released exclusively for the Ataraxia 2010 China tour.  
 

 

 

 

 

AURA – "Invisible Landscape"  CD (Valse Sinistre)  - 5 euro -  limited to 500 copies,12 pages superglossy & extrathick booklet.  AURA is a Portuguese avantgarde musical project. “Invisible landscape” - the debut album - is a conceptual work, an imaginary soundtrack that traces the story created by 10 pictures by the talented and well-known Portuguese photographer, Jose Ramos. It’s an experimental project that extends itself through innumerous musical styles:  from Classical music to Post Rock, going through ambient, soundscapes, industrial, field-recording, electronica, etc. The relaxing melodic notes of AURA are creating a delicate soundscape, dreamy, psychedelic, deep and beautiful at the same time. A few songs from “Invisible Landscape” were used in the movie "Funeral in the Rain" which' premiere took place in May 2010 at the Cannes festival, but will be presented at several other worldwide festivals. A music for those into experimental music collages.

 
 

 

 

AUN - "Black Pyramid" digipack CD (Cyclic Law) - 12 euro - Continuing on the foundations laid with the acclaimed 2009 album Motorsleep, AUN are further blurring the line where earth and space intersect with the ominous floating monolith "Black Pyramid". Casting a new shadow, the seven tracks that make up Black Pyramid are loosely inspired by the worlds created by visionary french artist Enki Bilal. While still dealing in dark matter, the twisted guitar and electronics mutations find the duo at their most melodic, luminous and accessible yet, but in the world of AUN there is always a very fine line between light and darkness. AUN's singular psychedelic ambient drones laid on Black Pyramid definitely marks this release as some of their best work yet, and this says a lot about the sheer power of this new album given their prolific and highly praised discography.

CONTROL – "Deadly Sins" digipack  CD  (Malignant Records) - 11 euro - 11 years after making his debut on Malignant side label, Black Plague, the legendary Control returns home to roost, with another pulverizing display of power. 7 tracks, thematically centered around the 7 deadly sins (with each track clocking in at the 7 minute), originally released as lmtd CDr for the Elektroanschlag 11 festival. There is no atonement here, nor redemption offered. Just cold, jarring currents of massively built power electronics and horror filled death industrial, full of clamoring factory debris, razor sharp sheets of sonic violence, and grisly metallic grind, rounded out with Garrison's trademark vocal devastation. In 4 panel digipak, designed by John Balistreri of Slogun..

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

COOLOOLA MONSTER - "Canciones del Diablo" CDr  (Mask of the Slave) - 4 euro - Cooloola Monster is an experimental noise project by Miguel A. Garcia & Estanis Comella, including collaborations with other artists as Oier I.A. (Tusuri), Carlos Valverde, Kijetil Hansen or Jorge Nunez. Their goal is to focus into the deep irrational, using completely free improvisation as a tool. Their sound appears sometimes as dark, deep and creepy, sometimes aggressive and noisy, sometimes even humorous and absurd. They have no limits into their approach into sound, being their objective to go beyond the limits itself. Miguel A. Garcia is one of the most active sound artists from the Basque Country. His sound ranges from quiet minimal drones to harsh noise with everything between. Solo and with projects as Valvula Antirretorno, Mubles or Baba Llaga he has released works in many different labels as Slaughter Prods., Apocalyptic Radio, Verato Project, Zeromoon, TIBprod, White Line, Homophoni, Triple Bath, and so on. His live sets has taken him to all around Spain and countries like USA, France, Norway, Poland and Portugal. CD-R in normal slim-jewel case, limited to 100 copies.

CUSTOMER.NOISE – "Chaos Factory" digipack CD (CustomRec.) - 10 euro - Jednoosobowy projekt Sławka Tutak (Toruń), którego twórczość oscyluje wokół szeroko rozumianej elektroniki. W swoich kompozycjach wykorzystuje stylistyczne elementy takich gatunków jak dark ambient, industry/noise czy experimental. Zafascynowany możliwościami środowiska cyfrowego za źródło wybrał wirtualne generatory z ich nieograniczonymi możliwościami kreowania dźwięku. W latach 2012-2013 skupił się na, jak to mówi, powoływaniu do istnienia nowych dźwięków w naszej rzeczywistości. W 2014 roku podjął decyzję, że nadszedł czas aby dźwięki "z szuflady" ujrzały światło dzienne w postaci płyty. W tym celu powołał do życia firmę producencką CustomRec., której pierwszą produkcją był wydany w grudniu 2014 roku album "chaos factory" zawierający 7 zróżnicowanych utworów w opisanej wyżej stylistyce. Z ciekawostek można dodać, że mastering materiału przeprowadził Marcin Cichy (Skalpel).

 
 

 

 

  CYCLOTIMIA - "Music for Stockmarkets" CD (Zhelezoboton) - 5 euro -  The music material itself is nothing like the one heard in the previous records of Cyclotimia. There is no apocalyptic soundscapes of "Wasteland" times, no cybernetic hi-tech and media madness of "E$chaton", no cosmic downtempo of "Celestis: Space Ceremonial Music"... Minimalism, academic sterility, surgical accuracy and meditative ataraxy prevail on "Music for Stockmarkets". Then again it is not the familiar "idm", "glitch", "noise", "clicks and cuts" and not "minimal techno"... The sound of the album is chrystal-clear and warm at the same time. "Vintage" lovers have a wonderful chance to listen to the masterpieces of Soviet music production (such as Rhythm 1, Rhythm 2, Aelita, Formanta UDS, Formanta EMS-01, Polyvox) in pure sound, unprocessed by effects.  
 

 

 

 

  CYCLOTIMIA - "Styx"  CD  (Zhelezoboton) - 5 euro - 7th full-length album from the masters of "stockmarket industrial". "Styx" is the most mainstream-oriented work in the Cyclotimia discography. The music here is free of experimental and academic explorations traditional for the band; here the emphasis is made on the rhythmical component. Inexorable like an economic recession and steadfast like a financial indicator chart, eleven compositions depict the sickly technogenic reality of the planet wrapped by networks of global capital, media glamour and ideological obsessions. In the ancient Greek mythology Styx was the embodiment of primeval dread and gloom, from which the first living creatures emerged. This was a personification of the underworld river whose pestilent currents seclude life from death... Similarly to this mythic river, currents of credits, percent, funds, financial quotations, capital issues, barrels of oil and advertising spaces flow on the Cyclotimia album to the accompaniment of hard, sterile and atmospheric electronic music.  
 

 

 

 

  CYCLOTIMIA - "TimeBank" CD (Zhelezoboton) - 5 euro - "TimeBank" is a collection of exclusive compositions recorded by Cyclotimia in 2003-2007 and for some reasons left out of the main albums. The material presented here is hard to fit in the Procrustean bed of common musical styles, but we can try to list the ingredients from which this post-industrial "dish" was cooked: both cyber jazz and idm, neoclassics and trademark technological ambient, old-school electronics and atmospheric new age, experimental and many more can be found here... Despite the seeming stylistic incompatibility the band succeeded in creating a self-sufficient album with a spectacular plot no worse than a good Hollywood thriller. A special jewel of the disk is the track "Nocturne" combining aerial melodies and uneasy sonic "cinematography". Also worth mentioning is the "live" 10-minute prog-industrial suite "Economic Meditation", imbued with psychedelic dramatism.  
 

 

 

  CYCLOTIMIA - "Deja Vu" CD (Shadowplay Records) - 5 euro -  The Moscow project CYCLOTIMIA is not needed to be present. It's albums were released at the cult western electro-industrial labels and also in Russia. It's music were sent even in space. During the period of 9 years there are lot of reviews about this band almost all sites and magazines that are devoted to the electro-industrial music mention CYCLOTIMIA or write articles about it. But you could make your own opinion about it - just listen the CD... All songs from the album were written in 2001 year and were released as two vinyls "Same Time Same Place" and "Metamorphosis" in 2002 year. But were difficult to buy because of the very limited edition... Chronologically the album "Deja Vu" is between "Wasteland" and "E$chaton"  
 

 

 

 

 

  CYCLOTIMIA - "New Death Order" CD (Ewers Tonkunst)  - 5 euro - This is a re-issue of the first MCD by Cyclotimia which has been released by the now defunct State-Art back in 2000 and now is a very hard-to-find collector item. This depressive gloomy work is closer to the early band's vinyl releases than to more electro-oriented latest albums. The claustrophobic aura of the world dying in the strangling embraces of the new world order, the total horror of everyday life, the omnipresent tentacles of consumerism - all the distinctive conspirological Cyclotimia topics are already here on this debut work, and lo-fi industrial-oriented sound makes it all totally revealed and free of any veneer. This album is a brilliant soundtrack for pre-apocalyptic times which could appeal not only to Cyclotimia fans, but to all the lovers of obscure atmospheric industrial in a vein of Schloss Tegal "Oranor III" or some 90-ies Sigillum S works. In addition to the initial MCD material, the release includes 8 previously unreleased tracks from the same period and comes in a cardboard full-colour envelope limited to 500 copies only. Total length is 74 min.

DARKWOOD - "Schicksalsfahrt" digipack CD (HeidenVolk)  - 12 euro - This studio release is dedicated to the Lonely Pilot. Lost in storm clouds,lost in the desert, or lost amongst men these heroes followed the path into eternity. Close to the sun, close to their gods, with wings of steel they became immortal. This recording is a sonic homage to these lonely falcons struggling with the elements, observing nature, acting in silence. Acoustic tracks with guitars, violoncello, violin, accordion, bass, and drums presenting English and German vocals express the emptiness of a soul lost in the heights of the skies or in the depths of the desert. The CD comes in a digipak with 16pages booklet, the LP will be limited and comes in a gatefold sleeve with coloured vinyl. Dedicated to the life and death of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry & Amelie Hedwig Beese HV13.

The original edition of Vanitas Vanitatum was strictly limited to 99 hand-numbered copies on a printed cdr with A5 special paper packaging. The revered French project Dawn & Dusk Entwined released its first album now more than 10 years ago on World Serpent, then on various other famous labels like Athanor or Cold Meat Industry, to follow its uncompromised path made of heavily atmospheric and dynamic soundscapes, mixing cinematic dark ambience with forceful, at times martial, rhythms, neo-folk nuances and strong orchestrations, with the permanent care of avoiding the clichés of all styles. In a era where man was placed at the center of creation, vanities paintings in the 16-17th century were meant to recall him his mortal fate and greater values, God at the time, than human pretentions, consumerism, cheap entertainment...

DENSE VISION SHRINE - "Time Lost in Oblivion" CD + DVD /PAL/ 2009 (First Fallen Star) - 5 euro - Although it mysteriously shares a similar title and artwork with "Lost Time in Oblivion", "Time Lost in Oblivion" is a completely new album with no known connection to the 2007 release. Building upon a solid foundation of dark ambient, Dense Vision Shrine also employs sampled sounds and sparse rhythm to carefully design the listening experience of a realm where time itself has stopped, of a blackened voyage into oblivion. Each track of the album is distinctive, yet always possessing the signature of Dense Vision Shrine and proving unmistakably bleak. Ltd x 500 copies in a DVD case with bonus DVD of visual material used for the background screening during live performances. PAL Format, Region 0 (will play in all European DVD players).

DER TOD UND DAS MÄDCHEN - "D-Moll" Digipak CD (Lichterklang) - 11 euro -  DER TOD UND DAS MÄDCHEN started out in 2009 finally presenting their debut now. The album „d-Moll“ is a musical anthology of long forgotten lyricists, longing back to the death of Goethe. The elegies all evolvoing from the 19th century reveal the sadness and the pain of the loss of close relatives. Melancholy and transience, deathwish and madness, dream and reality cristalize themselves out of these thoughts and build the centre of „d-Moll“. The area of romanticism, especially the so called black romanticism, focusses around these motives that are now being displayed by the album. Inspired by componists of the romantic times the extict poetry is based on the dark and melancholic tunes of a piano, „Du Verwaistes Haus“, based on a composition by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, being the only exception, standing out as an example for the decline of that classical epoch from it’s instrumental basis. C.P.E. Bach was regarded to be the umbral composer even during his lifetime by the veracuty of his father. The closing words by the German imperator Wilhelm II. from 1904 build the end of the album, questioning the human arrogance with his words „the world is so big und we are so small, how come that we expect to circle everything around us“.

 
   

DERNIERE VOLONTE - "Mon Meilleur Ennemi" digipack CD (Hau Ruck!) - 14 euro - After two years of silence Geoffroy is back with 12 new songs. Inspired by is own introspection, to fight and love his best enemy. Some lyrics to the 12 new songs have been taken from French poesie (Verlaine, Théophile Gauthier...), some are original Dernière Volonté. The sound on this all new album is a well balanced mixture of the atmospheres of the previous two albums ‘Devant le Miroir’ and ‘Immortel’, but in a sort of upgraded, more powerful vein.

 
      DESIDERII MARGINIS - "Hypnosis" digipack 2CD (Cyclic Law) - SOLD OUT!!  
 

 

 

 

 

  DESIDERII MARGINIS - "Thaw" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - Of the Swedish wave of ambient acts from the 1990s, Desiderii Marginis is one of the few still active and definitely one of the finest of those few. Far from being a typical project in the vein of Brian Eno/Lustmord, Johan Levin, the mastermind behind Desiderii Marginis, has created and developed its own unique sonic palette merging digital and analogue: melancholic electronica with electroacoustic elements and intravenous rhythms. From the early days his music met with positive reactions resulting in albums on renowned the legendary Swedish Cold Meat Industry label, and lately also on Canadian Cyclic Law. Over the course of 20 years, Levin released 7 full-length albums, a 3-way split and a collection of rare pre-debut demos plus numerous tracks on various compilations. His latest offering entitled "Thaw" compiles the latter and adds 3 tracks from the split "Lost Signals from Unknown Horizons". On the one hand, it is simply a collection of rare tracks, but, on the other, it may serve a purpose of a "best of" album. With the chronology unaltered, it gives you the full picture of the project and its progress. It is a history lesson of the last 20 years in sonic melancholia of Desiderii Marginis.  
 

 

 

 

 

DERVENN - "Gwad Roueel" CD (The Eastern Front)  - 30 zł - Dervenn in Breton means «oak», the sacred tree of the ancient Celts. Wood is the matter of our instruments and our breath is the «wind that shakes the Barley»… even if we are living in the era of digital and numeric realities. The soul is still musical and deeply tainted by the landscape of Brittany, by the musicality of it, by the symbolism of it. Arthur, Perceval, Merlin, we still share their quest for truth and beauty when riding our cars… No commercial folklore, no infatuated «world» or «ethnic» music, no archeological mythology nor so-called traditionalism. Just our true modern Breton music. Beauty and breath of the arthurian past speaking a present day, but not vulgar, musical language. «Gwad Roueel» («royal blood») is the first act of the quest, a personal and emotional evocation, using both traditional «celtic» instruments (bag pipe, Breton oboe, transverse flute, Irish whistle and bodhran) and modern ones. Invention and respect of the past are the key words, poetry, melody and strength are the feelings one gets from listening to this musical travel through the lights and darkness of human quest for purity and beauty…

DISHARMONY - "Malignant shields" CD (Aliens Production) - 5 euro -  Cold atmospheres, samples from movies, hypnotic rhythms, crystalic electronics and distorted vocals are the main elements of the music, which was reflected in their first release, Moonflower.

A must have for people who can find (and cure) themselves into music which represents total sorrow and neo-romanticism. Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak.

 
 

 

 

 

 

  EXPO 70 - "Corridors to Infinity" 2CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - Originally released in 2009 in a small tape and CDR edition (150 and 100 respectively), ”Corridors to Infinity” has been our favourite in their extensive discography. This edition, which sees the light of the day 5 years after its initial release, has been expanded to a double album with an additional disc entitled ”Star Coloured Clouds”. The original sound of Justin Wright's project – guitar-based drone psychedelia – has been augumented here with organ and synthesizer sounds giving it an even more spacious, but also meditative character. Expo 70 came closely here to Ash Ra Tempel without copying the German trio's sound, but having a similar feel drawing a few parallels with their early work. The second unreleased disc, recorded just one month before the sessions for the main album, has more guitars, yet manages to follow the same contemplative path complementing ”Corridors to Infinity” and thus creating a cohesive 2CD offering. The CD is housed in gatefold sleeve in the vein of Japanese-style vinyl replica and is strictly limited to 500 copies. The cover is based on the original release and the design was handled by Justin Wright.  
 

 

 

 

 

 

EXPO 70 - "Frozen Living Elements" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - It's been three years since Expo 70 appeared on the ”From Earth to Sirius” compilation and now they are back to Zoharum with a full-length offering. Their latest album is entitled ”Frozen Living Elements” and it features an expanded line-up. Apart from Justin Wright, Expo 70 were Jim Button on drums and Aaron Osborne on bass and additional synthesizers for the sessions and the result can be described as space rock power trio. With three tracks spread over 45 minutes, the trio takes as on a cosmic tour de force. With influences ranging from analogue electronica through guitar drone to noisy psychedelia, Expo 70 manages to travel back in time to the 1970s, yet stay as contemporary as they can without sounding dated or irrelevant. The musicians transport us to their rehearsal room drenched in dry ice where they play their extended acid jams landing somewhere in-between SunnO))), Can and Sperm. The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 500 copies. The cover was designed by Justin Wright. "Frozen Living Elements" was mastered by Scott Colbrun.

FORRREST DRONES - "Najas Flexilis Exequiae" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - A few months ago tracks with old pictures of various plants started popping up around the net. Tracks full of organic, ethereal drones. Then this tape with covers made of pages from some old book was released and it landed in our hands. A set of 5 tracks entitled "Tallest Trees Gallery". We listened to it very carefully and loved it, but still didn't know who was responsible for those enchanting sounds. We went through the J-card and found only the email address starting from two words "Cough Serenades". Who is that Cough Serenades dude? It's Robert Skrzyński, otherwise known as Micromelancolié. For his second offering as ForrrestDrones (but the first one on CD format) Robert has created one long piece entitled "Najas Flexilis Exequiae". A perfect contemplative track which takes you on a trip to the woods in the middle of the night. It is the world straight from forgotten fairy tales from sallow books. The owl from the cover is your guide on this dreamy journey. Is the forest real or are we only dreaming? Are those clicks, crackles and pops the sounds of the fire burning or the vinyl being played? Is the melody you hear soothing or sinister? Many questions keep popping up while listening to "Najas Flexilis Exequiae". Are you ready to take the challenge and answer them for yourself? The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FRAKMUNDT - "Urbarglieder" digipack CD (Percht) - 6 euro - Amazing and unique debut CD of the Swiss Ur-Folk project Fräkmündt, born out of the idea to revive old sagas and nearly forgotten songs and atmospheres of the alpine regions of Switzerland. Performed in alemannic central-Swiss dialect, the songs on "Urbärglieder" simulate a journey through landscapes of the quaint regions of Switzerland. They let you chase through stormwinds with the wild hunt at mount Pilatus or stroll under the paintings of the danse macabre over the Spreuerbridge in Lucerne. One can meet the devil in the Schöllenen gorge and follow the alpine herdsmen during their sad walk down to the valleys in autumn. The album is alternated by two sound-accentuated sagas and two atmospheric pieces, letting one share the horrors of the ghost-house in Stans and the mythical ambiance inside the Mondmilchloch cave. On "Urbärglieder" acoustic guitars, accordion, violin, flutes and various percussion instruments generate melancholic melodies full of nostalgia, but also rousing hymns which invite to dance. With "Urbärglieder" a piece of extraordinary Ur-Folk music was born, telling in its very own way the stories that are almost forgotten. Features cz (Vinterriket, Atomtrakt, Nebelkorona etc). Deluxe digipak with 16 page booklet.

GELSOMINA / NO XIVIC - "Furnace" CD (Some Place Else) - 5 euro -   Furnace is an unlikely yet strangely natural union of No Xivic, renowned sculptor of dark electro-acoustic soundscapes, and Gelsomina, Finland's most prolific harsh noise artist. The title track, also the main piece on the album, is a live collaboration recorded in late 2006, a grand opus of psychedelic noise with a peculiar 'kraut' flavour! In addition to this, both artists created exclusive tracks on their own to complete the album. In total, Furnace is a 44-minute blast of fire, brimstone and hazardous electric currents, and thus a fine completion of Some Place Else's tenth year of activity.

GEROSTENKORP - "Terre Brûlée"  digipack CD  (OPN Records) - 5 euro - Interesting and highly unique CD from the French project Gerostenkorp; a hallucinatory, post-apocalyptic vision full of luminous, multi-layered sounds, that move from the surreal, fractured and dreamlike to something more structured, with sprinkles of tribal rhythms, industrial beats, loops, and actual songs.

  GNAW THEIR TONGUES – "L'arrivée de la Terne Mort Triomphante" digigatefold CD  (Crucial Blast) - 11 euro - ...One of the extreme metal/industrial underground's most unique bands, Gnaw Their Tongues arises again with a new album of majestic, orchestral death-terror called L'arrivée de la Terne Mort Triomphante, a series of five hymns to the death shroud, a celebration of dissolution. This Dutch one-man avant black/doom/industrial band is responsible for two of the most chilling albums of abstract heaviness to have been released in recent years (An Epiphanic Vomiting Of Blood and All The Grand Magnificence Of Perversity, both from Crucial Blast), but with this new full-length, Gnaw Their Tongues peels back additional layers of it's bombastic horror to reveal moments of euphonic beauty more than we've heard on the previous albums...  
 

 

 

 

 

  GNAW THEIR TONGUES – "All The Dread Magnificence Of Perversity" digigatefold CD (Crucial Blast) - 10 euro - ...Picking up where 2008's An Epiphanic Vomiting Of Blood left off, Gnaw Their Tongues is back with nine new tracks of fearsome blackened orchestral chaos and abstract horror that still sounds like little else out there. On Dread, we're feeling an even heavier bass-assault compared to the other releases, and this is easily the heaviest Gnaw Their Tongues release yet. This monstrous, noxious bottom-end roar that skulks and slithers throughout the album suggests a foul fusion of Abruptum (which is still the closest reference point to Gnaw Their Tongue's black chaos) and Leonard Rosenman's most nightmarish film scores, piled in towering heaps of sadistic noise, warped orchestral strings, degraded samples, shrieking voices, and punishing lurching doom draped in suffocating atrmosphere. Hyper-abstract black metal sound-collage? Wagnerian avant-doom psychosis? That's one way of putting it, but Gnaw Their Tongues is ultimately impossible to pin down, defying simple categorization as this album plunges even deeper into a black pit of total cinematic horror, sexual perversion, and shapeless heaviosity....  
 

 

 

 

 

  GNAW THEIR TONGUES – "An Epiphanic Vomiting Of Blood" digigatefold CD (Crucial Blast) - 10 euro - Gnaw Their Tongues, an enigmatic project from the Netherlands that has wowed fans of messed-up heaviosity with the phenomenal Reeked, Pained and Shuddering CD that was released on Paradigms along with a host of super-limited CDR and cassette releases, is joining the Crucial Blast roster for the CD release of the new full length An Epiphanic Vomiting Of Blood, which was released as a limited edition vinyl release at the beginning of 2008 on Burning World Records. This undefinable mass of black amorphic horror is one of the most intense listens we've engaged in recently, a nihilistic pit of howling orchestral strings and blackened abstract doom, operatic female voices plunging into a fetid sewer of filth and blackness, equal parts avant black metal and splattered sludge and symphonic horror movie score. An overwhelming deathscape scrawled in jagged figures across pieces like "My body is not a vessel, nor a temple. It's a repulsive pile of sickness" or "Sawn asunder and left for the beasts", and flecked with moments of unbelievably crushing beauty that may surprise fans of Gnaw Their Tongue's previous work.

"The fresh smell of grass, blended with the mist on the lake penetrate into the long long silent night. The remembrance comes insurgently just like the water flows. At this moment, I am keen to touch and feel it, touch it softly and feel the memory flash down my heart... You point to the star which is at the south end and whisper to me softly if one day we get lost and are apart, you will be there waiting for me, holding the lights for me. Time and tide always make people miss the lapsed words in the past. Now, I am getting old. The very star that we promised to still shines brightly and stays there.

GUSTAF HILDEBRAND "Heliopause" digipack CD (Cyclic Law) - 12 euro - Finally we are graced with brand new material from Sweden's Gustaf Hildebrand, a few years after the epic Primordial Resonance album and his joint project with Amanda Votta, Lacus Somniorum. The Heliopause, the point outside our solar system where the solar wind ceases to be, transitioning into what is known as the Interstellar Medium and where our sun becomes just another pinprick of light amongst a billion others. If you were to find yourself stranded in such a place with nothing but a radio receiver, Gustaf Hildebrand imagines that this is what you would hear, low rumbling soundscapes interspersed with bursts of static, com-chatter and signal interceptions from a distant world. Vestiges of humanity bubble up from the ether, speaking encoded messages in the form of numerical combinations and long-forgotten cyphers, their true meanings lost or hidden away inside the memory banks of decommissioned satellites. This new chapter in Hildebrand’s discography reaffirm’s his position as a true visionary and unique craftsman of exploratory sonorities.

  HATI - "Wild Temple" digifile CD (Monotype Records) -  30 zł  - Studio album recorded by Rafał Iwański and Rafał Kołacki with special guest Sławomir Ciesielski - great percussionist and drummer of legendary Polish rock band Republika (in 80. Republika was one of the most original European bands - thanks to their specific antimainstream rock & roll songs, with new wave-inspired music and lyrics).

HATI - "Ka" CD (Eter Records) - 10 euro - If you ever saw HATI live you know how intelligently contrived their compositions are - their vast array of ethnic instruments (mainly gongs & other metallic ones, but not solely) is controlled by them in a very professional way; and the dynamics between between softer and more spheric gong or metal parts and more rhythmic & ecstatic ones are perfectly set. These are studio-recordings made in August in Torun, Poland, their hometown. On eight pieces their totally handmade instrumental sound is spread far to create very versatile material. Seen as contemplative ritual music or focusing just on the beautiful sounds of real instruments, this is a perfect start to enter the HATI-universe if you don't know them yet!!

HYBRYDS - "Mythical Music from the 21st Century"  digipack 2CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro -  "Mythical Music from the 21st Century", the first full Hybryds release, collects tracks recorded between 1983 and 1986 scattered on various compilations. Yet they form the first representation of their venture into the world of sonic rituals and magic. Their perspective on sound still has not been imitated or copied and even after 30 years they still sound fresh.
In the words of Sandy Nys:  The first recordings were made in 1983. During the next years more recordings and musical rituals were created with different people in different places. In this first release about 20 people were involved. The recordings were a field trip, a diary of my life. The recordings became a story. The mythical story of NaHeMa. Most of the songs were sent for compilations on independent labels, yet the complete story was released in 1986 for the first time as a cassette on 3RIORECORDINGS (there was also a very limited edition in a box of 30 copies with the Dream Machine building prints.) In 1990 it was re-released by Nuit et Brouillard (France) as a cassette in a small box. In 1998 a limited picture disc in an edition of 666 copies was released by Triton (Germany). This version is shorter than the cassette one. This new CD release contains extras: the unreleased live version of "Sacred Voices," performed live on Radio Centraal and an unreleased mix of "Octahedron" by the Alpha Project.
The album has been digitally remastered from the original stereo cassette master by none else but Sandy Nys, who also provided the cover based on the previous editions. This is the ritual music at its best. Now you can enjoy it in the best digital quality.

 
 

 

 

 

HYBRYDS - "Soundtrack for Antwerp Zoo Aquarium" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro -  The reissue of a long-deleted classic album by this legendary Belgian project. 'Soundtrack for the Antwerp Zoo Aquarium' is an unusual album, even in comparison with other Hybryds works. It was created especially for the 150th anniversary of the Antwerp Zoo. Music composed by Sandy and Hermann (of Ah-Cama Sotz) was woven in between the sounds of dolphins, killer whales and the noise of the underwater world. The Zoo director wrote the following in the preface: "Soundtrack for the Antwerp Zoo Aquarium" is a musical journey of the similar stature as "20000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Julius Verne. Let it be the best recommendation for those who haven't had a chance to get to know to one of the best and most interesting albums in the Hybryds discography.

 
 

 

 

HYIOS - "Consuetudines" digipack CD  (Malignant Records) - 11 euro -  The alluring debut from Leipzig Germany's Hyios offers 7 lengthy compositions of cold ritual drones, arching trajectories, and visceral descents into subterranean caverns, where rich, kinetic textures and deep resonant tones move and morph in a fluid, serpentine fashion, sprinkled with the debris of an ancient culture and something more otherworldly and primordial. Leipzig has historically proven to be fertile ground for dark ambient and "Consuetudines" continues in the fine tradition set forth by such notable acts as Inade and Herbst9. Presented in a 6 panel digipak, mastered by Secret Lab. A great new discovery!

IBERIAN SPLEEN - "Dracula / Vampire Hunters club versions" CD (Caustic Records)  - 5 euro - Caustic Records presents the club versions of one of the soundtracks from Francis Ford Coppola's film DRACULA (Vampire Hunters) produced and created by Iberian Spleen. Iberian Spleen, after some years of absence, and who reached the top ten of the DAC with the track I am so Afraid from the album Drama and Base, returns with an original idea, making versions not of songs but of the soundtrack of the film DRACULA, merging classical music with an intelligent, detailed and personal electronic music. These versions not only recall parts of the original track but they also try to keep the full essence and great composition by the master Wojciech Kilar, that is why the arrangements of classical music have been newly performed without using samplers from the original track and without losing the crescendo divided in the three parts of melody . Powerful versions that rest in the last track for us to have sweet dreams... LOVE NEVER DIES.

IN SCHERBEN - "Dort an jenem Baume" digipak CD (Licherklang) - 11 euro - Ltd.Ed. 500 / After "Erlkönige" (2008) and "Ostrakon" (2009), IN SCHERBEN release their third album, "Dort an jenem Baume", which is their first release on "Lichterklang". While the two preceding albums were marked by the struggle for a distinctive identity, "Dort an jenem Baume" is not just the result of their acquired musical maturity, but, above all, an affectionate commitment to the concept of "Heimat", which can be experienced in Maren's and Lars's lyrics, but also in their musical interpretations of poems by Eichendorff, Nikolaus Lenau and Gottfried Benn and was inspired by their move from Leipzig to the Swiss Alpine republic.
What elsewhere is often nothing but a common neofolk stereotype, a romantically idealised understanding of the homeland and its cultural and social origins, is transformed into a groundbreaking declaration of love, dedicated to one's own roots. Be it the Ruhr Valley, which is lyrically glorified in "Horizonte" or "Sachsenland", IN SCHERBEN's musical versatility and sparkling instrumentations are far from being restricted to clichés of the genre, but open up new horizons of classically inspired neofolk. Thus, they continue the tradition of strongly influential artists of the genre, such as Forseti or Dies Natalis, focussed on the essential and united in their consciousness of the virtues of an honestly and deeply experienced affinity with nature and cultural achievement.
 

 

  IN SCISSORS - "Orbis Terrarum Requiem" digipack CD  (Zoharum Records) - 10 euro - "Orbis Terrarum Requiem" in brief means "The World's Requiem" or "The Earth's Requiem" and in the case of this album the second explanation given fits better to its concept and thematology. It is a requiem for the destruction that has befallen Earth/Nature inflicted by humans. It describes a world deserted and the only inhabitants are life forms that used to dwell beneath the Earth's surface even long before the Nature's fall and they still do after it...
An excellent follow-up to 'The Veratrine Evangelicum', more structured and mature. An album that will grow on you after a few listens.
 
 

 

 

  IN SLAUGHTER NATIVES - "Cannula Coma Legio" CD (Cyclic Law) - 12 euro - We're honored to have legendary Swedish act IN SLAUGHTER NATIVES join the Cyclic Law family. Lead by the enigmatic Jouni Havukainen since the late 80's, he is responsible for some of the brashest and intense releases of the post industrial genre. This new release can be seen as a prequel to things to come, it contains 3 brand new tracks, in which we see ISN plunge into less bombastic terrain and delve into more obscure ambient territories. Along side these new pieces is reworked, remixed and upgraded material used in the last years as part of live performances by extreme body art performer Chérie Roi, giving new life and direction to some well known passages and lesser known tracks with the trademark ISN bombastic sound and vocals. A brand new album is also scheduled for release in late 2014, and this release serves as the perfect appetizer while we wait for the main course.  
 

 

 

 

 

INDIA CZAJKOWSKA & SEBASTIAN MADEJSKI - "Tańce Snu" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - ”Dances of the Dreams” (”Tańce Snu”) is a sonic journey through unexpected and undiscovered worlds of human imagination. This sonic journey is accompanied by the aura of oddity or mystery straight from the fairytale land. From a rich array of sounds, colours and surprising ideas, the artists extract haunting, subtle melodies. Here early music entwines with ambient, oriental melodies with experimental sounds, folky lightness corresponds with elements of neo-classical. The duo of India Czajkowska and Sebastian Madejski created a very suggestive album by means of early instruments (viola de gamba, psałterium) flute, piano, synthesizer, guitars and two unconventional voices; an album that is very hard to pigeon-hole. Having drawn inspiration from tradition, it brings a lot of freshness into seemingly fossilised structure. It is a surprisingly interesting, intriguing and delightful album for numerous listens. For fans of neoclassical/new folk sounds of Ataraxia, Jack or Jive, Rajna, Louisa John-Krol, Collection D'Arnell-Andrea.

INNER VISION LABORATORY - "Austeros" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - ”Austeros” is the third album of Inner Vision Laboratory, an ambient project of Karol Skrzypiec, on Zoharum following ”Future Chaos” (2011) and ”Perpetua” (2012), and two collaborative releases ”Decline” (2010) with Hoarfrost and ”Ambit” (2014) with Nepenthe. On the new album "Austeros" the artist unite sounds from the surrounding reality. The meanings and references do not illustrate or deconstruct as usual, but allow completely new musical beings to peal out, torn alive from random, lost radio broadcasts, the cacophony of everyday life, or unspecified ether. "Austeros" is an album that allows the individual to enjoy the sounds, served with reverence, which, thanks to its minimal consequences reverberate with the strength. The more they strike, the more you get into this kind of futuristic world, disappearing faster and faster into oblivion. Once again IVLAB shows that the form is a useful tool in overturning established routines ... to build on their ashes a message sent to sublime senses. The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies. The cover was designed by Ewa Skrzypiec.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

INNER VISION LABORATORY - "Perpetua" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 10 euro - The focal point of the album is the condition of mankind entangled in the cycle of creation, stagnation and destruction. Creation is an idealistic picture, it dwells in an idea of fiat lux et facta est lux. It is a blueprint for the musical narrative that is comprised of unrestricted admiration of life, of order that is mankind’s objective, and ultimately of conflict which is the most inherent human condition. In the war of mankind against itself the ideals permeating creation become obscure and only annihilation brings forth a new illusion – a promise of another beginning.
The ubiquitous illusion is an all-encompassing device that folds these non-recordable events into a cycle. It is channeled in the unifying wave of music of Karol Skrzypiec – an artist more complete, yet still debating the finality of his form of communication. Syntactically, the latest release of INNER VISION LABORATORY is an effect of thoughtful construction. Perpetua is an unconventional harmonious image which draws also from beyond of the repertoire typically associated with the instrumentarium characteristic of its genre, the accord of the album’s narration, however, is not lost.

 
 

 

 

 

 

INNER VISION LABORATORY & NEPENTHE -  "Ambit" CD (Zoharum Records) - 10 euro - Two years after well-received "Perpetua" album, INNER VISION LABORATORY returns to Zoharum with their new album entitled "Ambit". Not a solo venture, but a collaborative effort with young, but promising NEPENTHE project. The album was 3 years in the making when they were searching for a common language and fiddling with sonic matter using the Internet in this respect, they have created a monolith - a very cohesive, yet symbiotic world. It might be easily labelled as "ambient", yet they break the patterns of that style. "Ambit" is composed of 7 compositions, clocking in at 50 minutes. It is composed of beautiful, yet unsettling melodies, for those who are fascinated with sounds coming from Cyclic Law and Loki Foundation labels, but also for new-comers to the genre. For those open-minded for something new and touching, a kind of music painted with the whole palette of colours and sounds.

 

 

 

 

 

INNER VISION LABORATORY - "Future Chaos" CD (Zoharum Records) - 10 euro - Inspiration comes from various modern postmodern and futuristic art forms including sci-fi literature or films, minimalist and industrial underground music scene, amongst many other sources. The main such source of inspiration for 'Future Chaos' is today's ever - changing world. Wars, poverty, global economy in crisis, fossil fuels depleting more rapidly every year could put an end to the world as we know it in a snap.A sudden catastrophe could drive human kind away from its technological progress straight into dark and really volatile enviroment of the dark future and into the chaos embedded within it. Some years past the critical moment on planet earth humans begin to leave their isolated and scatterred enclaves to reconquer the desolate postapocalyptic landscapes. A world where ancient rituals and neoprimitivism spread over ruined remains of a reckless past. My work is an illustration of a world after a sudden collapse of humanity and its civilisation in during 21 st century. 'Future Chaos' is a dark ambient passage into landscapes of this world of tribal and postindustrial elements.

 

 

INORGANIC BLOSSOMING - "Autumndrones" digipack CD A5 (Infinite Fog Prod.)  - 5 euro -  "Autumndrones" — is a name which belongs to two musicians from cold Siberia – Becoming and Freeall. They both have done soundtracks for short films, music for theatre plays and sound for commercials. "Autumndrones" — can be explained as a love to autumn. They did not want to dedicate the music to this season, they wanted to write it. Therefore they music was written during the fall only, and when the first autumn passed they left the unfinished material until the next one. That is why the work took them 3 years. Almost all the sounds you can here were recorded in the natural way, these are autumn sounds. The whole mood of the album went through this season, even live instruments, such as violin and accordion, were recorded in fields along with the leaves noise.  "Autumndrones" — is three compositions long record, ambient, careful noise and accidental melodies, the mix of leaves rustle, wind blow and analogue synthesizers’ singing. This is melancholy, doldrums and infinity.
