  SANTA AGOSTINO - "Operazione Paura" digipack CD (Greytone) - 5 euro - /Gloomy Soundscapes/. SantAAgostino tell of the Noises from Beyond the Gate. They feel the return of those who died and are reborn more rotten and foul than before. "Operazione Paura is a total turning not just for the band but for dark ambient music and noise. SA is like a meteor crashing into Earth, disrupting balances, rhythms and cycles. After the crash the planet appears perished but, in the inner part, the new fire of life is burning. A brand new energy developed in a new way of living, thinking and being. "Operazione Paura" speaks of filmic and horrorific fear, and all those mental factors that trap a man in the self-made cage of his own mind. "Operazione Paura" is a huge solitary desert, where sounds flow creating new monsters beyond space and time. Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak.  
   

SEALED IN BLOOD - "Coemeterium" CD (Heerwegen Tod Production) - 10 euro Third album of Dark Ambient from this Polish act, and their first CD-proper. Named "Coemeterium", it is the darkest album in the existence of this lower Silesian project. "Graven night, cold and gloomy autumnal atmosphere with drone echoes, gongs and creaking living elements. Full of death, fullmoon in the fog, dark side of nature, catacombs, graveyards and ancient burial ceremonies".

 
   

SECRET DRUID SOCIETY - "Restless" digipack CD (First Fallen Star) - 10 euro - Long after we are all dead and gone, the planet will continue to go about its business. For aeons before humans existed and for aeons after we are extinct, Earth will cycle onward through seemingly endless ages, barely aware that we existed at all. It is from our own arrogance that we imagine Earth without humans to be a quiet place, an inactive place. If we were to look more closely, to listen...

SHRINE - "Nihil" CD (Cyclic Law) - SOLD OUT!!

 
 

 

 

SIEBEN - "Each Divine Spark" digipack CD  (Redroom) - 11 euro - "Each Divine Spark' is the finest and most fully-realised Sieben album to date. Finding the balance between enigmatic menace and elegant beauty, its lines lock into the brain on first listen - as the looped layers of violin build to a heady and head-spinning orchestral brilliance. Restless, driving rhythms are channelled into performances of restrained intensity, helped by MATT HOWDEN's most confident vocals yet, forward in the mix, close to the ear. Recorded in a perfect studio acoustic, the album creates a sound-maze and leads the listener to the centre. A statement of intent; a masterclass". Features guests: Jo Quail, Sarah Jay Hawley, April Howden, Michael Eden.

 
   

SIEBEN - "Star Wood Brick Firemamet" digipack CD  (Redroom) - 11 euro - Sieben is unique. There is nothing like him. Words flow from a silky voice and notes slide off the bow with ease. In this there is magic. Chemistry happens. The strings loop, the songs unfurl and the images in your head blossom. You are drawn to this world, compelled. Star Wood Brick Firmament envelops you. It enchants. Its stories are rich in life and human warmth and, sometimes, cold reality. This is the mighty Sieben, better than ever. Every track is memorable. Beautifully produced by the man himself, Matt Howden.

SISTRENATUS - "Sensitive Disturbance" CD (Cold Spring)  - 5 euro -  Blurring the lines between Dark Ambient, Industrial and Noise, Sistrenatus storms forth, shifting between oppressive aggression and unsettling atmospheres. "Sensitive Disturbance" is the third offering from this now legendary Canadian act, whose debut "Division One" was issued on Cold Spring in 2007. An aural journey through the urban decay of abandoned factories, scorched landscapes and underground passageways. "Sensitive Disturbance" is an abrasive rendition of the industrial revolution in its darkest phases.

 
      SKULLFLOWER – "Fucked On A Pile Of Corpses" CD (Cold Spring) - SOLD OUT!!  
 

 

 

  SKULLFLOWER – "Tribulation" CD (Crucial Blast) - 11 euro - The new emission from the UK trance-noise legends SKULLFLOWER. A black-void beaming of utterly destroyed drone rock and crushing amplifier obliteration that rains down black ash and punishing blasts of feedback skree on the listener. A dynamic, bleary-eyed meditation. An avalanche of powerdrone that threatens to take your cranium apart and transport your grey matter into filthy new dimensions infested with melodic razor cuts and submerged mantras. A triumphant eruption of apocalyptic meta-metal and radioactive raga swarms, guaranteed to loosen eardrums. This album is one of the heaviest, harshest slabs of guitar armageddon from Matt Bower since the glory days of Total, and bridges the void between the krautrock/celestial free drone influence of the last few Skullflower albums, and the blackened molten death of his Mirag material.  
      SKULLFLOWER – "Orange Canyon Mind" CD  (Crucial Blast) - SOLD OUT!!  
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SKY BURIAL - "Transmissions From The Void" CDR + ART CARD SET (Crucial Blast) - 8 euro - Since the dissolution of his long running power electronics/harsh noise project Fire In The Head, New England noise artist Mike Page has gone on to focus on his other project Sky Burial, which had long existed as a "softer", less violent side of Page's musical work. The first time that I heard Sky Burial was on the self-titled disc that he released on Housepig sometime around 2006, and was impressed by the vaguely menacing drone rock experiments and dark ambience that was featured on it's six tracks. In the last couple of years, though, Sky Burial has evolved into a much more distinct sound that while definitely less confrontational and abrasive as his work with FITH and Irukandji, is still plenty dark and malevolent, a kind of sinister cosmic bliss-out that brings together his obvious love of classic 70's space music and krautrock (Tangerine Dream, Popul Vuh, Vangelis, Klaus Schulze, Cluster, etc) with an undercurrent of grimy, apocalyptic industrial dread. Being a huge fan of both dark industrial and old-school kosmische music myself, I've been getting more and more into Sky Burial's music with each new release, and when C-Blast received a copy of the new Sky Burial album Transmission From The Void to check out earlier this year, I was sucked in to it's glazed black-nebula ambience instantly. Consisting of a single album-length track, Transmissions is one of the darkest pieces of cosmic drift that I've heard from this project so far, it's nearly forty-five minute runtime constantly moving through clouds of intercepted radio signals and distant rhythmic grinding into clusters of gorgeous synthesizer drift that ascend into the stratosphere, then crashing back down into blood-freezing stretches of infernal machine-drone and swirling abyssal ambience

SPREU & WEIZEN - "Gott Vergelt's" CD (Lichterklang) - 11 euro - "Gott vergelt’s", the second full-length album of Munich's SPREU & WEIZEN is a conceptual album concerned with the fall and second rise of the Roman Empire. The album's title is an allusion to a Southern German expression for "thank you", but is to be understood, as was the case with the first album's title "Gott erhalt's", as a play on words calling on God to retaliate against the decline of the Roman Empire.
SPREU & WEIZEN's "Gott vergelt’s" features collaborations with Von Thronstahl, Art Abscons, Rose Rovine E Amanti and Karma Marata.
As opposed to the aspiring Bavarians' first album, this CD can no longer be classified as purely neoclassical, which is mainly due to two new members who have had a strong impact on the project's sound. Apart from powerful slogans and fiery guitars, we are presented with an enticing melange of melancholic neoclassicism and gloomy Christian folk that has a decent Italian touch.
The neoclassical project SPREU & WEIZEN was founded in 2009. In the beginning, the group consisted of two members, Sig P. and Hagalaz. After a slight change in style, embodying, amongst others, black metal and psychedelic elements, first concert plans were made, and guitarist Chris T. as well as flutist Iduna T. joined the group in the following year.
Especially a collaboration with German poet Uwe Lammla and German martial industrial project Von Thronstahl, which was based on Lammla's poem "Deutsche Passion", was received with great enthusiasm.

 
 

 

 

 

 

STEEL HOOK PROSTHESES - "Atrocitizer" digipack CD  (Malignant) - 11 euro -  As long time admirers of this Texas two piece, it seemed only a matter of time before Steel Hook Prostheses would find a home with Malignant. While Atrocitizer will probably not be considered their most aggressive release, it is unquestionably their most unsettling and creepy. 10 tracks in total and close to 50 minutes of death industrial in it’s purest form, dripping and oozing with sinister intentions, and full of grim electronics, unnerving pulsations, and cold frequency spasms that swarm from a fetid pit of malevolence. Add in a steady stream of ultra menacing , processed vocals and nightmarish samples, and surely you have one of the more disturbing releases ever to be released on Malignant. Steel Hook Prostheses formed in 1999, and since then have amassed an impressive discography of limited CDR releases. Atrocitizer is just their second full length non CDR release following 2005's Light Reflected From A Cold Cutting Table. In 6 panel digipak.

Mastered by John Stillings of Steel Hook Prostheses. Ltd x 300 copies in a digipak.  
 

 

 

  STRATVM TERROR – "Pain Implantations" digipack CD  (Old Europa Caffe) - 11 euro - Formed by aggression and pain the aptly titled CD 'Pain Implantation' is probably a good description of the music, given the focus of the approach. Sparse and suffocating atmospheres float forth while distorted sicken tones are injected. The opening track lulls the listener into a false sense of relaxation before the distorted frequencies leap out to reek havoc on the listeners cerebral area. The music throughout the disc pounds on your skull without mercy and then slows down before the next eruption, ripping through your ears jamming them with feedback and beats tearing the mind apart. Stratvm Terror is Peter Andersson of Raison d'être, Necrophorus, Bocksholm, Atomine Elektrine etc. and Tobias Larsson of Ocean Chief.  Total disc duration is 77 minutes.  
   

STROPS – "Likuma Burts"  digipack CD (Sturm) - 10 euro - Industrial. The solid fullenght release penetrates one's mind and emotions with massive layers of noisy, powerful industrial in combination with lyric ambient fever. The dramatic martial opus shines with a distinct Strops peal, - deep, anxious, snug and melancholic. Great barricade industrial songs bear strong social anti-consumerist concept, a hint of despise towards globalisation and philistinism - the resistant message about a forgotten price of freedom.

THE FLOATING WORLD “The Apparition” digipack CD (Cyclic Law) - 12 euro - The Floating World is the solo project of Amanda Votta. Begun in 2005, three albums have been released so far; Full Sturgeon Moon (Hand/Eye 2005), Unda (Barl Fire 2005) and River of Flowers (Foxglove 2006), appearing as well on a few compilations. Amanda has also collaborated with Gustaf Hildebrand in Lacus Somniorum, as well as with Far Black Furlong and New Risen Throne. She also has a band, Secrets to the Sea, with Neddal Ayad from Desolation Singers. The Apparition is Amanda Votta’s attempt to capture that moment when things are other than what they appear to be, when a sound is not just a sound, a voice not just a voice. The liminality of certain places, things, sounds, people, experiences, apparitions in their own right as they are neither here nor there serves as inspiration for our endeavor to reach for that which we cannot see. Just as it was the sound of Iokanaan’s voice that transfixed Salome, the sound and the words, we have blended sound and words to mimic that experience. The Apparition takes its name from the painting by Gustav Moreau depicting the apparition of Iokanaan appearing before Salome, a vision only she sees, that exists in a space between that which we see and that which cannot be seen. On this album Amanda is joined by Neddal Ayad (Desolation Singers/Great Attractor), Timothy Renner (Stone Breath) and Nicole Votta. Drifting, minimalistic ambiances are overlaid by The Floating World's signature flutes, combining to weave soundscapes that are as dreamlike as they are melancholic.

The combination of film music, ebm, idm and ambient color makes this project colorfully creative. Slovakia's production starts to take over a strong position in the generating of serious musical particles that knows to offer the concept for each music enthusiast.

Opening doors and drawers using the sole curiosity as tool, walking backwards the traces of memory, wandering amid shades and details given by mystery, decadence, abandon, romanticism. Carefully delving into psychological dynamics. Openly denouncing the social plagues, but often humbly providing just visual and sound suggestions. Digipak.

  TREHA SEKTORI - "Endessiah" CD (Cyclic Law) - 12 euro - Imagined as the end of a cycle, initiated with 2012's "Endessiah" album, "Severh Sehenh" is not really the third album from Treha Sektori nor an e.p. It's to be seen an appendix, a specific chapter of time. It consists of a lone track, cut into different movements. The material was formally composed for live performances, with the overbearing urge of facing eyes, to live through them. Imagined as a burden to carry, a day we didn’t expect, and a final step that is unknown. No way to unload what is on our shoulders. Acceptance is the only way to trace a new path. Peaceful times with hard thoughts. Rough moments with joyful feelings. saveh erh anth ah erah leh, We will save what ties our throats. deverh ah temehera. koreska enh, We will remember in our hands, the day when we lost.

The music translates into a carefully crafted work full of cinematic drones of ruthless atmospheric power, destined to make Triangular Ascension a name to be reckoned with.

It demonstrates how to create a mindblowing atmosphere with very little sounds involved.

  VALENCE - "Allogene" Digipak CD (Lichterklang) - 10 euro  - For the first time in twelve years existance, american VALENCE release an album in Germany. Valence ist he musical union of N2 Itinitl and Sasha Feline, well known for their works with GNOMONCLAST and LUFTWAFFE. „Allogene“ ist Neofolk at it’s best. The instrumental basis of the rough songs is laid by drums, acoustic guitar, accordeon and a virtuos flute. Only now and then orchestral samples are being used to complete the overall impression. Although the influence of CURRENT 93 can not be denied, Valence have their own identity and remain fresh throughout the whole album. Along the rough charme of their initial neofolk roots, VALENCE fascinate by their powerful drumming which contrasts with the melancholic and fragile melodies. Especially the male vocals perfectly celebrate the nihilistic charachter of the music between sufferance and aggression, giving proof that neofolk arose from the ashes of the postpunk movement, while the female vocals emphasize the beauty of the moment. „Allogene“ is a rough and unpolished diamond of original and passionate neofolk, based on it’s powerful arrangements and the balance of the obvious contradictions. This is the kind of neofolk that should appeal to people who like IN GOWAN RING or BIRCH BOOK as well as CURRENT 93.

Vresnit is the project of one man working for artistic embodiment of the creative rotation within the label Vetvei. He was formerly known as ruler of Kerpg label, Pugna, Vagranok, Nrodum and other projects, now ceased their activities. Deaf thickets and swamps, heaven ravines, lost voices, unseen birds. Eternal mosses, lichens, fog and ancient trees. The path lies deeply through the thickets and higher to the sun, meeting with ancient human-animals, keepers of the Book. Majestic and archaic canvas neither begins nor ends, woven by the Sledge of Three-Worlds-Animals. The Words of scratches, beats, rings and rustles - all goes into vibrating flow of crudely woven muscarinic Shamanic Drone Ambient atmosphere. Tunvet appears as primitive experience for co-breathing with Earth, diving into the twilight forest and flowing into its beyond. Slow and endless movement in a Circle that appears as Eternal Order. A Myth of the World-Man Creation, a dreamflight, a meeting with the Forest Spirits preying on the flesh and substituting it with metal and stones, giving life to the Ancient Co-knowledge. Created using field recordings, voices and woodwinds, metal gongs, percussion and "concrete" sounds. Gripping, saturating and transforming experience of raw wind, celestial chariots and chthonic naturalism.

WEIHAN – "Blódslitinn á Steininum" CD (Lichterklang) - 11 euro - Stronger than ever before and seven years after their last album, WEIHAN return with their impressing new album „Blóðslitinn á Steininum“. While the previous album of the belgium project were characterized by the divergency between Neofolk and martial based influences, Jurgen and Miguel used the long period to strengthen their music on a more sophisticated and variable version of Martial Industrial that is conceptionally founded in norsk sagas and sacrifial pagan rites. The title of the album therefore might also be translated as "The colour of blood on stone". „Blóðslitinn á Steininum“ emphasizes WEIHANS outstanding position in that particular genre. The album was mastered by Axel Frank at the „Blue Lounge Studio“ in Berlin.

  X-NAVI:ET - "Dead City Voice" vinyl LP (Zoharum Records) - 16 euro - The second vinyl album by Rafał Iwański aka X-Navi:Et (of HATI, Voices of the Cosmos, KAPITAL, Innercity Ensemble fame). The theme of the city has appeared in the modern art territory quite a few times before. Wim Wenders, a cult German director, once said that "thecity shapes people, leaves its stigma on them and deforms them to its own likeness." Murray Schafer, a Canadian composer, while working on the concept of "soundscape", claimed that many of the surrounding sonic incidents infiltrates the music of our times. Following the footsteps of Charles Baudelaire among others, urban artists, Rafał Iwański and Ewa Bińczyk, replayed the city, penetrated its spirit and echoed it in their activities. Telling the city by means of sound and vision is becoming an inward journey as well.  
 

 

 

  X-NAVI:ET - "Dead City Voice / Remix Project" digipack CD (Istant Classic) - 10 euro - Limited edition to 200 copiec with art cover graphics by Agnieszka Zwara. Remixes by Z'EV, PURE, RAPOON, STARA RZEKA, Yannick Franck and MIRT. The best psychoactive sounds. Koncepcja na skompletowanie tego wydawnictwa narodziła się jeszcze w momencie edytowania albumu "Dead City Voice", wydanego na winylu i kasecie i zawdzięczam ją po części Z'EV-owi, który powiedział, że kilku artystów z którymi kiedyś współpracował nie miało pojęcia co to znaczy prawdziwy remiks. Według Z'EV-a prawdziwy remiks polega na pracy na surowym miksie albo nawet jeszcze lepiej - na wybranych z niego trackach. No i tak też zrobiłem - każdemu artyście wysyłałem osobne tracki danego numeru zebrane w jednym folderze, a oni robili z nimi co chcieli. Według mnie dało to ciekawy efekt, utwory na "Remix Project" są całkiem inne od oryginałów, mimo że szczątkowo można usłyszeć dźwięki źródłowe.  
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

X-NAVI:ET - "Soundtracks for the Dying Moments" LP 2012 (Istant Classic) - 15 euro -  Rafał Iwański a.k.a. X-NAVI:ET is a percussionist, wind-instrument player and electronic sound artist, known from his main outfit HATI. Performing as X-NAVI:ET, he presents electroacoustic-space-drone-music, a unique combination of analog electronic sound generators and filter machines with acoustic instruments and field/found recordings. "Soundtracks for the Dying Moments" is the title of his full-length solo debut album, released on limited to 250 copies vinyl via Instant Classic. „X-NAVI:ET is based on analogue modified electric and acoustic instruments. I’m talking about small percussive instruments, medium-sized gongs, Chinese and Arabic clarinets and found objects” – explains Iwański.

"Soundtracks for the Dying Moments" was carefully composed with the attention towards every small detail. It resembles a kind of musical storytelling. „It was crucial to create it as a story with memorable scenes, something like a movie to listen to. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the one and only logic of the sequences-compositions. I’m glad that people are coming back to traditional records and magnetic tapes which is a more holistic way of listening”. The album is released in a limited run of only 250 copies. 140gr LP is packed in handmade covers via a Cracow, Poland based indie label Instant Classic.

  YAMI KURAE - "La Sposa Dello Stagno" CDR + ARTZINE  + ART CARD SET (Crucial Blast) - 9 euro - ...with La Sposa Dello Stagno, the Crucial Blaze series is proud to introduce the incredibly creepy and disturbed music of Yami Kurae. Hailing from Italy but enshrouding themselves heavily in a mix of Japanese graveyard folklore and musique concrete techniques, this sounds like nothing that I've ever released before. The group feature members of the experimental Italian rock group Slumberwood (A Silent Place/Tannen Records), but this is not 'rock', nor any other easily identifiable musical form. Yami Kurae is the sound of Japanese demons slowly plucking away at ancient Tsugaru-jamisen songs on broken shamisen taut with cat-skin and spun silk beneath a blood-red moon. It is the nonsensical utterances of insane ghosts lurking between tombstones. It is a bizarre kind of low-fi dessicated deathfolk drenched in dissonance, dementia and disease. Across the twelve songs on La Sposa Dello Stagno, the band weaves together nightmare visions of dead spirits, harshly dissonant improvisations, fractured nocturnal folk, haunted chiming melodies, strange demonic gurglings and brain-damaged caterwauling vocals, the sounds rendered through a murky low-fi recording that is then twisted up and damged by sudden bursts of malfunctioning tape noise and other electronic fuckery, the recording sometimes dropping in and out, or warbling as if we're hearing this music being played back on old decomposing tape reels. After listening to La Sposa several times in a row, the image that kept creeping into my head in an effort to describe this strange din was that of a strange meeting of Jandek, AMM and Abruptum gathered together to perform a set of ancient Japanese folk songs while gradually becoming more and more ruined on low-grade opium...  
    YAROVIT – "Simargl`s Call" CD (Nihil Art Records) - 4 euro -  lim. 500 copies, jewel box, style: ambient / folk. Yarovit`s music is many-sided and advisedly cannot be put in limits of one defined style. The style can be termed heroic rhythmic Ambient - Folk, in some tracks with background guitar stuff, screaming "black" vocals and martial warlike lyrics on russian.

  Z'EV - "Sum Things"  CD 2009 (Cold Spring) - 12 euro - Through an element darkly… In the fall of 2005 Z’EV began dipping deep into his archives and selecting recordings to produce ‘sum things / a possible form for cold dark matter’, a project reflecting his take on the ‘dark ambience’ genre. Composed between December 2005 and March 2006, these 6 pieces endeavor to transport the listener deep into their long forgotten memories of the primal forces at the dawn of creation. Each piece is based on a single sound source. Absolutely no effects of any kind, not even equalization, were applied to the source recordings. Instead Z’EV relied solely on the stretching of the duration and pitch of the samples and then edited and mixed the results down into the heart of space. Hear then, the state of the art in elemental musics. Not to forget the beautiful packaging by artist Abby Helasdottir.

  ZENIAL - "Connection Reset by Peer"  digipack CD - 11 euro - (Zoharum Records)  It's Zenial's first album in 6 years, and it shows his creativity in the context of live activity. It does not mean that 'Connection Reset by Peer' is a live album as such. Yes, the source material for the record was recorded live during sonic experiments and creating sound installations over the past few years. The album is not a compilation though-it's a well-weighed entity, thematically and sonically coherent. 'Connection Reset by Peer' is a result of interferences of environment sounds based to a large extent on electricity, radio feedback, electromagnetic field sounds emitted by current generators and elements of the so-called field recordings.  
 

 

  ŽENKLAS X - "Take" digipack CD (Dangus Records) - 10 euro - The enchanting acoustic improvisation of ethno sound and contemporary music - a new experimental delight from the legendary Lithuanian artists' group, reborned after 15 years! Played with variety of natural acoustic instruments, these 8 songs intake one to the mantric world of cozy mysterious sound, adding to archaic origins the oriental element, ambient, free-jazz, world, subtle electronic and avantgarde. Really calm and pleasant album, bringing folklore spirit, though never quoting it. Composed to listen and to find a personal bond with the language of sounds this record is to experience diversity and enjoy acoustic festivity. CD comes in a deluxe digipack, limited 1000 pcs.
