JARL / ENVENOMIST - "Tunguska Event" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - A long time ago we discovered little known musician called Erik Jarl. We really liked his first albums and we were watching his music mature over the years. So when Erik contacted us with the offer concerning releasing his album we jumped at the chance. Erik has teamed up with David Reed aka Envenomist to create a sonic reenactment of the Tunguska event. It was ”was a large explosion which occurred near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, at about 07:14 on June 30, 1908” [Wikipedia]. It flattened 2,000 km2 of the forest and it caused glowing sunsets on the horizon. There are many theories concerning the cause of this particular event. Some scientists claim it was connected with an asteroid or comet that burst in the air above the region, others claim that it might have been a small black hole passing near the Earth. The mystery is still unsolved. The music, presented here in five parts, is full of oily drones and industrial blasts intertwined with unsettling ambient textures. The sound on this recording is of complex and mature nature, which hardly comes as a surprise when thinking about years both musicians spent mastering their skills (David with Envenomist and Luasa Raelon; Erik both in IRM and Skin Area, and solo known simply as Jarl). It is an interesting piece of work for those who search for something on the fringes of electronic music. The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies. The cover picture and design was made by Karolina Urbaniak (responsible for the lastest covers Jarl, IRM and Skin Area albums and widely known for here photographic work.)


JARL - "Out of Balance" digipack CD  (Malignant Rec.) - 11 euro - 17 tracks in total, each flowing into each other, with the early pieces having an almost cosmic heaviness a la Inade. As it progresses however, the seeds of profound sickness begin to blossom as tones and textures become more surreal and unsettling.


JAZKAMER - "Balls The Size Of Texas Liver The Size Of Brazil" CD (Purple Soil) - SOLD OUT!!




JESUS OF NAZARETH / EXPLODING METH LAB – "The Seed Mouth Collection" CDr (Crucial Blast) - 7 euro - Total fucking blast noise armageddon !!! This disc has been in the works over here for an eon, but we've finally gotten it together and have this jackhammer assembled and ready to trepan any of you mutants out there that might be looking for some extreme cut-up grindnoise violence to ruin yer day. This is part split album, part collaboration between two DC-area projects that have been orbitting the underground grind/punk scene in the region since the turn of the decade. The Seed Mouth Collection is packaged in a foldout sleeve printed in high contrast red and black, with an insert card and the disc affixed to the inside of the jacket on a plastic hub. Limited to 300 copies...







JOB KARMA - "Punkt" digipack CD 2010 (Obuh Records) - 11 euro - Those who follow post-industrial music know well (or at least they should know) the name of JOB KARMA. We present  with utmost pleasure a still-hot fresh album of this merited duo, who are gradually becoming the spearhead of landscapists of the genre. These two brave-hearted boosters of  post-industrial tradition are now forging hit by hit 8 well-shaped and perversely tuneful pieces, which form an ideal soundtrack for an apocalyptic soap opera that eats up bits of our lives every now and then. Escape from...but where? Everywhere is the same in the giant guts of the mechanical Leviathan. Cosmos serves more and more dark lards from the frighteningly far galactic preserves, the black hole gets bigger and bigger. But do not be afraid. The Mind Grinding and Oppression Machine (the fearful MGOM), choking and wheezing with its own enormity, gets jammed and broken more and more often. Somewhere in a System bowels a new Snake Plissken is born. The fight goes on. As ever. And me... Well, I recommend to you the most sensational album this Spring. Covered as it should be, in a three-fold digipack with a phenomenal cover design by Arek Bagiñski, let happiness and joy be with him for now and ever.

    KAMIL KOWALCZYK - "Aurora" CD 2011 (Prototyp Produktions Ltd) - 5 euro -  A debut CD album from sound artist/composer Kamil Kowalczyk. It contains two long tracks, “model II” and “plasma”. The main concept for album was conspiracy theory about Aurora – a top secret, ultra fast US Military aircraft, also called TR-3B, which has very advanced technology, and special engine driving by plasma…  
    KAPITAL - "Chaos to Chaos" digipack CD (Istant Classic) - 11 euro - The album consists of 8 tracks recorded by the band and mastered by Marcin Bociñski. It’s a huge musical step forward from the realms of drone that engulfed “No New Age” – it seems quite enough to mention the vocal-centered single “The Music of Goodbye” with it’s wide pallette of moods. A brighter and somehow more uplifting cover art (courtesy of Joanna John) makes this unique enigma even more compelling.  


  KAPITAL - "No New Age" digifile CD (Bocian Records) - 11 euro - Kapital is an encounter of two artists that usually penetrate different musical genres and ideas. It is an encounter of two musical worlds: psychoactive electro-acoustic music generated with electronic instruments and found objects and extreme psychedelia based on the sounds of processed guitar. Zio³ek and Iwañski worked together for the first time during recording sessions of improvisational group Innercity Ensemble formed in 2011. In August of 2013 they recorded in Bory Tucholskie their debut album titled "No New Age", released on CD by Bocian Records.  
    KARJALAN SISSIT - "Miserere" CD (Cyclic Law) - 12 euro - Re issue of the second album by Karjalan Sissit, originally release in 2002 on CMI, with completely redesigned artwork and 2 additional tracks. A close follow up to their 2001 self tilted debut. Blending unsettling string arrangements and ambient passages with thundering percussion and screeching vocal passages, this second installment in the Karjalan Sissit discography definitely deserves to be made available again and be rediscovered. Hate, humor and disintegration really have established themselves as the essential elements fueling this unique project.
Edition of 500 copies in A5 Gatefold Sleeve. 11 Tracks. Running Time 49:30
      KARMA MARATA / KRISTIAN GIORGINI - "And still remain" profi CDr (Skull Line) - SOLD OUT!!  



KARSTEN HAMRE - "Through the Eyes of a Stranger"  CD + DVD /PAL/ 2009 (First Fallen Star) - 12 euro - Having created music for many years under such project names as Arcane Art, Penitent, and Defraktor, Karsten Hamre returns with the "Through the Eyes of a Stranger". Similar to his project Dense Vision Shrine, under his own name, Karsten crafts desolate dark ambient sound structures, ornamented by sampled sounds and experimental textures. The end result of this process is an experience categorized perhaps too simply as dark ambient, though it more closely resembles a dark soundtrack to a movie, or to a life - as seen through the eyes of a stranger. Ltd x 500 copies in a DVD case with bonus DVD that takes the viewer on a visual journey of imagery used for live performances. PAL Format, Region 0 (will play in all European DVD players).




KAUNA TRAIPS – "Kauna Traips" CD (Sturm) - 5 euro - Experimental dark ambient release by Tarchoks and Koils. It all started in 2006 when it seemed no longer possible to keep holding all this within, partly due to the surrounding environment. Like induction, shame - as masochistic means to feel strange guilt for breaking imagined social and moral constructions, or making them serve another purpose; and conservation of energy - the two minds and bodies, often being intoxicated death close, transforming energy into something else. A tranquil accompaniment for madness, and information overload, pouring into your consciousness and subconsciousness through every smallest crack.

In the electric field between. Total faith and desperation, hope and doubt, eternal bliss and delusion, we walk an unsure path to an unknown end. When the clouds open, the light navigates. The loud music of the sky: pounding drums surrounded by trumpets and swirling voices echoing from a distance unknown”. Kreuzweg Ost rises again with God on their side. “Gott Mit Uns” combines a variety of different musical styles: from Martial Industrial to Classical sounds, from deep Ambient to cinematic Pop music.

It tells how, in the years between the two wars, in some small villages of the south it was believed that magic rites and amulets could have some form of will on daily life.Taking inspiration from some cult italian books, such as Tommaso Landolfi's homonymous novel, these song show how neofolk music has an esoteric origin through their real popular beliefs. Recorded in five years, the album includes guests from the italian neofolk scene, such as Egida Aurea, ZSP, Lupi Gladius and Antiqua Lunae. Their genre could be a strange kind of neofolk called "verist post-folk".




LAGOWSKI PRESENTS LEGION - "False Dawn" digipack 2CD (Zoharum Records) - 13 euro - LEGION came as a surprising side-project in comparison to the British audio visual technician's regular tracks released up to that date. "False Dawn" was an excellent venture into the world of spacey electronica which might have served as a complement to the dense world of techno on LAGOWSKI's early vinyl releases and to the dark wave of NAGAMATZU. Containing two lengthy tracks ("Colossus" and "The Plasma Pool") supported by a short rhythmic "Accurone", it explored the potential of digital electronics in order to create atmospheric soundscapes, for which it was critically praised. The reissue is presented in a 2CD edition in a luxurious 6-panel digipak.




LAHARIS - "Unpolitical Alchemy" CD (Vrihaspati Records) - 5 euro -  Laharis is the new project of Johan König who was the original founder of A Challenge of Honour. After recording the 'Wilhelm Gustloff' sessions, Johan left ACOH and gave the Project to Peter, who is ACOH nowadays. In 2005 Johan started working on his own music again under a name that he used already several years ago: Laharis. On the new album "unpolitical alchemy" he works again (for the first time in 5 years) together with Peter. The sound is between the early ACOH recordings with modern electronic influences. A beautiful album with many psychedelic moments. the best soundtrack for long car-rides in dark nights. ATTENTION: this CD contains a hidden VIDEO-CLIP!

LARRNAKH - "Like the silken shrouds of loneliness" digipack CD (Epidemie Records) - 5 euro - I founded Larrnakh in 2005. I wanted to incarnate a musical entity that is based on my own ideas and conceptions alone. This is dictatorship. I am in control, I make all the important decision. Of course there are friends, who help me out. They provide their instrument skills or technical support, and sometimes ideas too, under my guidance. I expressed my musical ideas in a certain militant, heroic way from the start, making them complete with a little lyric harmony. Mostly industrial, neofolk and noise influences dominate, with various other tiny elements and ideas, keeping all in continuous formation. After long preparations, the recordings of the Now will you believe? album started in 2009. The album was released in 2010 by the Austrian label Steinklang. The reputation of the 40 minute long album was really good among both professionals and the audiance too, so the band filled with self confidence and fresh energy has started the next album. In May 2011 the second album titled Like the silken shrouds of loneliness was released. As previously, the disc contains neofolk rich in emotions and vivid industrial elements. The dark ambient influences are less dominant, making the music of LARRNAKH more explicit.




LARRNAKH - "Now will you believe?" digipack CD  (Steinklang Industries- 5 euro - Great NeoFolk album featuring (ex)members of CAWATANA, STURMAST and SCIVIAS! "Now will you believe?" is a brilliant mix of classical guitar-based NeoFolk with electronic elements, varied and assembled with droning Ritual/Dark-Ambient tracks. the mix of two completely different styles in music makes this album to a outstanding new milestone of "crossovers". Dark and sometimes frightening soundscapes with samples, trumpets and haunting drums are compiled with beautiful harps, piano, violin and narrating vocals, rounded by fine NeoClassical elements. 7 songs / 41 min.




LES COLONNES DE L'ÉTERNITÉ - "A Soldier Of Lifeforce" Digipack CD (Lichterklang) Limited edition 300 copies - 11 euro - LES COLONNES DE L’ÉTERNITÉ were founded in 2009, when Vilkas found new forms of expression in the Martial Industrial-genre after first musical experiences in the Black Metal scene. „Soldier Of A Lifeforce“ now is his first step into public where powerful drumming corresponds with melancholic melodies und muliple layered passages, influenced by neoclassical orchestrations and choirs. Conceptionalwise „Soldier Of A Lifeforce“ deals with the clash of cultures in a global world, where the loss of cultural identitiy is increasing day by day. LES COLONNES DE L’ÉTERNITÉ stand in the tradition of bands such as Toroidh or Karjalan Sissit, but with their own unique musical brand that makes „Soldier Of A Lifeforce“ nothing less than one of the most impressive Martial Industrial albums of the year.

LUL & BETA CLOUD & ANDREW LILES - "Circadian Rhythm Disturbance Reconfigured" digipack CD (Cold Spring) - 11 euro - From England to the United States and back again… it all started as a simple drone project between LULL (aka Mick Harris of Scorn, ex-Napalm Death) and BETA CLOUD (aka Carl Pace), based on the concept of how insomnia can effect your thought patterns. Billows of powerful bass drones set to indistinct flourishes of temporary insanity. The original track is there, but also included is a fierce remix track by legendary sound artist Andrew Liles (NURSE WITH WOUND). Fans of Lull and Beta Cloud will really sink their teeth into this one; what Liles has created here is not a simple remix but a raging, deconstruction as only he can do. Originally released as a limited 3″ CD in 2008, now proudly presented in a deluxe digipak edition with stunning new artwork. A captivating listen for dark ambient and harsh noise fans alike.

  MACHINEFABRIEK - "The Measures Taken" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - After last year's two releases (a compilation of rare tracks ”Dubbeltjes” and the reissue of a collaborative album with Dag Rosenqvist entitled ”Vintermusik”) a renowned sound artist Rutger Zuydervelt returns with a completely new album called ”The Measures Taken”. It is the score for a dance performance by choreographer Alexander Whitley and visual artists Marshmallow Laser Feast. ”The Measures Taken” was originally commissioned by the Royal Opera House (it premiered there in May 2014). The spectacular performance involves a lot of hi-tech interactivity between dancers and projected visuals. The theme of man vs/with machine is magnified by the music, which combines warm melodic pads with glitchy white noise and (more than on any other Machinefabriek release) propulsive rhythms. Now you can enjoy the music from the performance on a physical album which is also striking without the use of the visual side. The album is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 300 copies.  






  MACHINEFABRIEK - "Dubbeltjes" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - New compilation of rare works entitled "Dubbeltjes". It consists of 11 track recorded between 2008 and 2013. Rutger Zuydervelt talks about "Dubbeltjes": Short playing time formats, like 7-inches and 3-inch cdrs, are great to work with. More than on regular albums, the durational limitations are useful to experiment with and to create really focused, cristalised pieces.
Most of these tracks focus on a very limited palette of sounds. "Hilary" and "Jeffery" for example, are constructed using solely trombone recordings from (you guessed it) Hillary Jeffery (of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble). "Huiswerk" Part 1 and 2 were made using a simple setup of electric guitar and sampler. And probably a suprise in my discography are "My Funny Valentine" and "Oh Doctor Jesus", two jazz classics, in collaboration with bass clarinet player Gareth Davis. All these sets of songs have a very specific quality to them. These tracks are among my personal favorites. Most of them aren't available on a physical format anymore, so it's great to gather them on the album 'Dubbeltjes'. The tracks are presented as pairs or trios, as they appeared on their original releases. It's up to you, the listener, to either experience these combinations seperatly, hear the album in continuous play, or use shuffle mode to make new combinations.



  MACIEK SZYMCZUK & SLOWTION - "Ways" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - Album was prepared together with a British artist hidden under the moniker Slowtion. 'Ways' is a musical journey into the depth of your own persona, the diary from spiritual journey in search of the answer on the meaning of the human existence where, among the complexities and blind alleys, one can find an element of sacrum, the contact with the Absolute. Musicwise, 'Ways' show slightly different traits of Maciek Szymczuk's work. It may have happened this way because of the collaborative nature of the project and Slowtion's involvement in it. Also, it may have been the character of Joanna's voice-delicate, ethereal that resembles Bristol sounds a bit.   



  MAEROR TRI - "Meditamentum" digifile 2CD (Zoharum Records)  - 13 euro - Unavailable for many years, "Meditamentum" is a collection of tracks culled from tape releases and rarities hidden on many compilations. It spans the whole existence of Maeror Tri, starting with 2 tracks from 1989 ending with 3 tracks from 1996. It is a sort of "best of" Maeror Tri, as it tells the story of the bands progress. From rough edges of "Peak Experience" to dreamy soundscapes of "The Beauty of Sadness".
"Meditamentum" is also a document of the underground tape scene of the 1980s and 1990s, and of a genius of MAEROR TRI as purveyors of mind-altering sonic experience. It's "Music for the Brain" at its best.
Each volume is extended with a bonus track making the whole collection 155 minutes long and comprising of 23 tracks.




  MAEROR TRI - "Emotional Engramm" digipack CD (Zoharum Records)  - 11 euro - The reissue of a long-forgotten classic MAEROR TRI album with stunning new artwork and newly remastered sound. Back in 1997, it turned out to be the last album by this experimental trio of German droners composed of Stefan ‘Baraka[h]’ Knappe, Martin ‘GLIT[s]CH’ Gitschel and Helge Siehl. The former two later formed TROUM and the latter 1000SCHOEN. During their nine-year existence, they recorded a handful of albums and cassettes with their unique mixture of minimalism, industrial, ambient and drone, exploring the brains of potential listeners. „Emotional Engramm” is MAEROR TRI 's most refined effort to date. After years of experimenting, the group came to a characteristic sound composed of layers of electrically / electronically-treated acoustic instruments. Their organic sound achieved the most accessible form on „Emotional Engramm”;. Clocking in at just under 80 minutes, the seven tracks presented here show Maeror Tri at its best.
The reissue is presented in a lavish 6-panel digipak.





MANINKARI - "Continuum Sonore 7>1" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - Maninkari, a duo hailing from France, should be a well-known one for ambient lovers. They have already released six albums on renowned labels such as Conspiracy, Neuropa or Basses Frequencies. Their influences range from classical music through jazz and free improv ending with ambient and drone. Therefore, it is not easy to classify them as a modern post-industrial electronica combo. The duo works quite intensively. They have just prepared the second volume of their 2012 ”Continuum Sonore” album. What enchanted us about Maninkari while listening to part 7-14 ”Continuum Sonore” compostion of is their easiness in creating beautiful, but haunting melodies drowned in cinema-like atmosphere. It is not surprising as the duo have created music for films of Thomas Pantalacci. Their other advantage is varied instrumental textures. Apart from regular synthesizers and not so common persussion, they use atypical instruments, such as bodhran, viola, cimbalom, santoor. It brings them closer to the neoclassical genre. The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 300 copies.




MARS – "Blood Is The Food Of The Gods" digipack CD (Lichterklang) - 11 euro - ‘Blood is the Food of the Gods’ - MARS, a pagan brotherhood founded in 2011, present their third release after the folk-debut ‘Sons of Cain’ and the powerful vinyl-e.p. ‘Sacrifice’. Inspired by American pagan folk and apocalyptic philosophy the sound of MARS is dominated by purely acoustic arrangements using guitars, various percussions and two male voices. Their drum-driven hymns tell of the persisting powers of nature, of the ancient breath of the gods and of the Eternal Cyclic Law of life. This is no simple escapism into dreamy realms, it’s a multifaceted journey into the subconscious parts of the human spirit, driven by pounding rhythms and accentuated guitars. With ‘Blood is the Food of the Gods’ MARS has become a powerful force in the European pagan underground. Their songs are energetic rituals to awaken the forgotten powers. Like the 12” ‘Sacrifice’ before this album displays unique hand-painted artwork by Nadine O. Demmler. Featured are new interpretations of ‘Icarus Falling’ (:Golgatha:) and ‘Man is Disorder’ (Aeterna).

    MEJDANEK WALZ - "Ophelia" CD (Wroth Emitter) - 5 euro - "Ophelia" is the second part of a trilogy by Majdanek Waltz.

All compositions are published for the first time.  

MEPHI - "MoRgAnIuM Ad AyLaNiUm" digipack CD (MidNight Productions) - 5 euro - The debut album from the swedish neo-classical project MephI, sparkling like a crystal, melancholy like in a moon-night, 2 souls of solitude present you this sorrowful love poem which interweaved by full moon and numerous stars.

MERZBOW - "Scene" CD  (Waystyx) - 12 euro -  Recorded in November 2004, this material is not remarkable for it's brutality, rather on the contraty, sometimes it reminds quite normal music. The album is filled with straight rhythmic moments and ambient diffusions, but of course Masami Akita couldn't do it without good noise flavouring even here.

MERZBOW & Z'EV – "Spiral Right / Spiral Left" CD (Cold Spring) - 11 euro - In the planning (and many faxes, emails and discussions in person) for 20 years, finally this stunning collaborative release for Cold Spring from Japanese Noise king Merzbow and legendary elemental sound artist Z'EV is here.

MERZBOW - "Camouflage" CD (Essence Music)  - 12 euro - We salute the ferocious torrents of abused, imploding and exploding electronics, the sharp, pulverizing and abrasive high frequencies and the unrelenting punishment of frenzied throbbing machine-screams witnessed in the controlled cacophonic environment of the latest Merzbow offering!

A fascinating classic "and" quiet "album of" ambient music, to work of one of the greatest and "historical" masters of the sort...

Also defined as a multi-layered noise act combining unsightly sound forms with Harsh Noise, Experimental, Industrial, Ambient elements. CD-R in normal slim-jewel case, limited to 60 copies.


MIZAR - "A View to a Flower Garden"  Digipak CD (Corvus Records) - 10 euro - The return of a classic dark wave band from the 80’s, this time with a more minimalistic approach (in the vein of Joy Division, for instance), but quite dark, elegant, melodic, very gothic and still sweetly melancholic.




MOLJEBKA PVLSE – "Zojo" digipack CD (Greytone) - 10 euro  - The Moljebka Pvlse album Zojo was recorded during the Mathias studies at the Royal Institute of Art. He was inspired by the longest night of the year in Stockholm, the day when there is almost no daylight. His ambition was to make an acoustic album of minimal music without any musical instruments. Moljebka Pvlse setup long nylon strings across his entire studio at school, which he then plucked and bowed and recorded with his favorite contact microphones on that very night. These recordings became the fundament of the album and set the tone for the rest of the work. Moljebka Pvlse are very grateful for the contribution by the Japanese artist Michiko Kashiba on this album.






MOON FAR AWAY - "Minnesang" CD (Ahnstern / Steinklang)  - 10 euro - Brand new album from cult Russian Neofolk act Moon Far Away! "Minnesang" is an album of 21st century ritual music encased in a unique fusion of the most diverse and zeitgeist-capturing musical styles, from neofolk, dark folk and post punk to practically future pop. The theme of the album, the deep-rooted feminine archetypes in contemporary art, is embodied in the title, which identifies a genre of medieval knight lyrics. At the same time, most of the original Russian lyrics on the album are drenched with the trademark Pomor flavours, emphasising the pride that the band has always taken in its cultural roots that extend deep into the epic traditions of the Russian North. "Minnesang" is a new milestone achieved by a cult group who already gave contemporary art scene a number of discoveries and revelations. This Ahnstern version has partly different artwork to the Russian edition and the last song is completely different to the Russian version.


MORTUOR - "I'm Waiting for You" CD (Syzmic Records) - 10 euro - Debut release from this US act. The stale state of experimentalism has forced this; the union of sickness and sound. A tribute to the forerunners of power-death electronics. Pure emotion. Pure sickness. Pure power. Nothing compromised. Classic Death Industrial, dedicated to and inspired by the works of the late Marco Corbelli (Atrax Morgue) and the Italian Death Industrial Movement. Ltd x 250 copies in an outsized gatefold sleeve.

MURDEROUS VISION - "The Times Without Gods" CD  (Live Bait Rec.) - 11 euro - Deep layers, melodic keyboards, classical samples, some ritualistic percussion here, some low-pitched echoed plus chorused voices there, and a good dose of darkness via reverb and minor chords; you already know the formula, don't you? But the fact is that, even if Murderous Vision repeats the patterns of an established genre with a superb accuracy .. and then, maybe you can infer that this is the case of a perfectly planned album, which lacks an own soul, and that's not precisely what surrounds me .., Mr Petrus demonstrates that it has an identity as a composer. And moreover, I would describe some parts of the recording as highly emotional, giving that somewhat special touch to the album; the quality all art should transmit and something that some technically depurated musicians tend to forget nowadays. Add to it a few carefully arranged pictures (layout work of the acclaimed Michael Riddick) in a standard jewel case, but with a professional appearance, and, as a whole, here you have the reasons why an edition like this couldn't keep on passing unnoticed for the average fan of the more listenable side of Industrial. A perfectly designed product and an infallible bet, which surely decided the artist to give its best in all senses once he realized what he had between hands. A moment of brilliancy and a high mark difficult to be surpassed in the near future, but that can set a new beginning for the band.

    MUSSORGSKI - "Chaos and Paranormal Divinity" CD (East Side) - 5 euro - 20 years after first demo and 16 years after the dubut album MUSSORGSKI is back! New Album 'Chaos and Paranormal Divinity' brings 46 minutes of dark Doom / Black Metal with industrial touch. Let the Chaos begin!!!

  NADJA – "Desire In Uneasiness" digigatefold CD (Crucial Blast) - 10 euro - Following a wave of recent reissues and re-recorded versions of older CD-R titles, Desire In Uneasiness is an album of all new material from the acclaimed Canadian dreamsludge weavers Nadja. Five colossal jams of eternally-fuzzy, ethereal dirge that are powered by the interlocking bass guitars of Leah Buckareff and Aidan Baker, who set loose a wave of monstrous grinding bass riffs amidst a fog of beautiful, swirling electronic effects. Desire also marks the first Nadja album to feature a live drummer in place of the drum machine programming that has driven the band's previous recordings, and the difference in the band's sound is apparent from the first crushing beats of album opener 'Disambiguation'. The organic drumming here takes Nadja's music into new realms of spacious jazzy exploration, dubby rhythms and cavernous psychedelia, while also delivering some of the band's most grooving, crushing hypno-bliss yet. Desire also stands out from the rest of the Nadja catalog for it's bizarre artwork that Aidan commisioned from his friend The Reverend Aitor. Aitor's bright, bold lines and textured magic marker artwork gives the gatefold jacket we've presented this disc in the look of a twisted children's book on acid, with weird images of chickens, trees growing through chairs, and more. The package is a sturdy 4-panel gatefold jacket printed by Stoughton, and it looks killer.  



  NEKRASOV - "The Ever-Present" 2xCDR + ART ZINE (Crucial Blast) - 10 euro - Harsh noise into his miniature holocausts of hellish speakershred isn't news to anyone who has been following his body of work over the past few years. From the beginning, Nekrasov's mechanized black blasts and sprawling abyssal soundscapes have been infested with the most caustic forms of electronic abuse and frequency terror. But starting with the extremely limited disc In Solitude And Darkness, The Last Step Is Made that came out on Void Séance last year, Nekrasov has now also started to work with the rigid aesthetic of the "wall", sculpting brutal, immersive infernos of extreme static noise that are reminiscent of Vomir. The mindset is certainly similar; going for extremely long unbroken tracks of churning high density distortion that remains unrelenting and unchanging, Nekrasov's efforts in HNW drag me down into the same sort of depressed, lightless Zen state that the French master is so adept at invoking. This is no small feat.
Hand-numbered and limited to two hundred copies.







  NIEMANDSVATER - "Zeitenlos" Digipak CD (Lichterklang) - 9 euro- In the beginning, “Niemandsvater” was the result of a collaboration involving Markus Stäritz, Christoph Lotte and Niklas Schäpsmeier. Between 2009 and 2010, they created a cycle of interpretations for William Blake’s “Songs of Innocence and Experience” with the musical support of Torsten Jeschke and Magdalena Dieke.
After that, Niklas Schäpsmeier and Christoph Lotte worked on own ideas for Blake’s “Europe a Prophecy” and set some works from H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu myth to music.

Finally, “Zeitenlos” was composed by Christoph Lotte and his wife Julia Hayn who also wrote the lyrics for the album and provided its artwork and cover design. Niklas Schäpsmeier and Sven Luhman also contributed to the creation of “Zeitenlos”.

“Zeitenlos” is a reflection on the aesthetics of time, its transience and the inevitable fate of mankind while it reveals the love for a concept of an idealised human greatness that is considered to be lost. Myth-like, the album’s topics twine around timeless ideas in an ideal time and, thus, constitute a quest for the cultural and spiritual beauty of man.
With minimalist approaches to classical music and inspired by the sonorous landscapes of the Greek and Roman antiquity, “Zeitenlos” unfolds a reverie transcending time in an unreal atmosphere. Piano, lyre, trumpet, percussions and subtle ambient effects accompany Christoph Lotte’s dominating vocals.







  NIHIL NOVI SUB SOLE - "Jupiter Temple" digipack CD A5 (Licherklang) - 11 euro - At some point during the year of 2009, My Kingdom Music sent me a rather interesting 4-track EP. Only 17 minutes short, it was a magazine-only foretaste of Marco Kehrens (ex-Deinonychus, ex-Bethlehem, ex-Dark Sanctuary) new project - Nihil Novi Sub Sole (Nothing New Under The Sun). Now in early 2010, Marco has released his debut under the new moniker. A new moniker - a new kind of music. Let me tell you that 'NNSS' really doesn't have anything in common with metal. Instead the project focuses on industrially tainted ambient compositions. The most defining aspect is the drumming. It's very loud in the mix and rather monotone and serves the purpose of dragging the listener throughout the eerie atmospheres set by various orchestrations and samples. Vocals are completely replaced by samples speaking about great sins of humanity - most of them in German about national socialist atrocities - and a few choir samples. The atmospheres this record conveys are powerful and picturesque and as such the whole music has a certain intriguing gloominess to it. It's rare that the chiming of a bell paired with a simplistic keyboard build-up can carry such a strong mood by themselves (Totgeborener Lebensmut). With this album Marco Kehren proves how effective music based solely on atmosphere can actually be. However the music doesn't offer anything apart from that. The musicianship is rather minimalistic and while no two songs are completely alike, the CD as a whole sounds very samey, which is probably its biggest shortcoming. As background music for moments of solemn reflection, this record seems almost perfect though.   
    NIKITA GOLYSHEV - "Solaris" CD (Monochrome Vision) - 5 euro - The debut CD album of one of the most promising russian underground musician, presenting his own unique vision of ambient music. Combining the deep layers of machine-like hum and minimal melodic keys, Nikita creates highly emotional and dramatic journey to the netherworld. Two parts of this one hour long suite are the partly presented in the program of Add Noise II festival on May 15th, 2007.  
    NOSENS - "The Final Step" CD-R 2009 (s/t) - 3 euro - This is debut releases of French project Neoclassical / Ambient / Orchestral / Industrial. Sound on myspace>

OF SWINE AND SWILL - "Of Swine and Swill" CD (Live Bait Rec.) - 5 euro - Like an ancient bottle of Absinthe found buried in some dark cellar, you’ve discovered something very unique here. Elements of the classics, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath and Hawkwind perfume the air as an aural louche, sonic clouds swirling with Industrial soundscapes a la Deutsch Nepal or In Slaughter Natives, with a touch of Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Stephen Petrus (Murderous Vision) and John Potter (Flintknap/Murderous Vision) created the initial concepts for Of Swine and Swill as childhood friends. Musical discussions turned to all night experimentations. Recording sessions turned into weekends, then weeks of nothing but the music. Over the course of the summer of ’08, Stephen and John blended their rock and electronic roots into a finely honed project, with over an hour of material recorded. With the addition of Rick Pfluger (Reichardt Van Grieken, Rambler 454) contributing vocals on two tracks, and eventually joining the project full time, the circle has been made complete.Without the constraints nor boundaries of any one genre, the music of Of Swine and Swill is very personal, introspective and emotional, a palette of color, aggressive yet subtle. Atmospheric, yet never a passive listen!The album features a 8 page full color booklet, which includes all lyrics and artwork by both John and Stephen. Limited to 1000 Professionally replicated copies.

ORCHIS - "A Thousand Winter" digipack CD (Infinite Fog Productions)  - 11 euro - "A Thousand Winter" it is improbable result of the deep mystical experiences embodied in studio work! It's a сonceptual album, with Grand Theme: The story of one part of Europe is extraordinarily like every other part; a thriving pagan culture that at first laughs in derision at the priests of the desert messiah, and then is slowly submerged by the rising tide of christianity until all that remains is folk memory and old tales and songs. The cult of the Nazarene has built many truly awe-inspiring cathedrals from the blood of the people of Europe whilst incorporating and subverting their culture into that of the Blood of the Lamb. Now this album also the important part of history Neo-Folk of music to which we again have possibility to touch... So, ORCHIS again with us and returning begins with "A THOUSAND WINTERS" which we with pride represent in 6 pannel-digiCD with a bronze stamping.





  ORDO ROSARIUS EQUILIBRIO - "Songs 4 Hate & Devotion" [Limited] Gatefold LP (Out of line) - 23 euro - Strictly limited edition VINYL in deluxe GATEFOLD-Cover, featuring an alternative track listing. Crossing the borders between art, rebellion, passion, apocalypse and sex, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio have managed to settle in their very own musical niche with their opulent and intense sonic sculptures. “Songs 4 Hate & Devotion” is an emotional rollercoaster ride driven by the intense voice of Tomas Petterson that alternates martially majestic monuments of orchestral sounds, marching drums and percussion with very intimate and fragile moments, mingles Cold-Wave-, Shoegazing- and Minimal-elements with folkloristic structures and that manages to slip in the odd musical quote as well. The Swedish duo has carefully opened and evolved its unique sound into a wholly exceptional epic that consequently evades any easy categorization. Pop music for non-conformists.  


  ORRYELLE - "156 = Musick = Babalon = Kaos" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - The Silver Dusk's 156 = Musick Project is an experiment of Process: Magickal Musick was recorded by members of The HermAphroditic ChAOrder of the SILVER DUSK -usually in ritual context or with invocational intent- then posted on CD to other member/s in another country for them to add more layers to. This continued progressively until completion. The style of music ranges from neoclassical ambient orchestral multi-instrumental corroborations and layered electronic experimentations to simple primal ritual corroborees with sticks and bells and harmonious voices around a fire by the Hekate Tree.  




  OUROBOROS - "Opus Tartari" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 10 euro - Album of Italian dark ambient project which - in its leader's own words - after years of esoteric and alchemist studies decided to transfer his own experiences into music. Ouroboros should be then treated as a medium used in search for its own philosophical stone. Compositions included on the album lead the listener into the world of antique and medieval times due to their tunes and the singing in Latin. Mystical, slightly sacral character of the tracks has become its leitmotif recognisible for the band.
Marco Grosso known for his collaboration with many session musicians (with Claudio Dondo of Runes Order) asked a lot of vocalists (Nuna Luna - soprano voice, Sorath Isis, Aleph Zero, Malice) to participate in the recordings as well. This resulted in the creation of 'Opus Tartari' - an intriguing, emotional, full of unsettling beauty and esoterica journey. The album can be likened to early releases of Diamanda Galas, The Moon and the Nightspirit and The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud.
    OUROBOROS - "Lux Arcana" CD (Sabbathid Records) - 10 euro - Full-album / Esoteric Dark Ambient from Italy.

PBK & Josh Lay - "Split" CDR  (Syndrom Records) - 4 euro - American composer, Phillip B. Klingler, better known as PBK, has been active in the experimental music underground since 1986. His soundwork correlates to electroacoustic, classic industrial and free jazz genres. PBK has fashioned a noise-based music that doesn't rely on power electronics process, but rather, by placing noises themselves into ambient/atmospheric sound environments. His soundworks are composed from turntable manipulation, sampling and analog/digital synthesis. Improvising spontaneously and with little preconception, PBK creates pulsing, echoing, organic soundscapes of unknown sonic origin. Josh Lay combines his horror-noise approach with PBK's psychedelic synth improvisation into a deep, forbidding soundscape.


PBK / TELEPHERIQUE -  "Noise Ambient Connection" CD (Monochrome Vision) - 5 euro -  This particular album is the first ever collaboration between american soundartist Phillip B.

PHRAGMENTS - "Earth Shall Not Cover Their Blood" digipack CD  (Malignant)  - 11 euro -  You’ve seen it before. Certain bands or artists delivering their finest work with their first recording. Then, in futile attempts to capture some of the same magic, becoming formulaic and stale, rehashing ideas and never really achieving the same caliber of work. Others, expanding on the elements of their prior releases, and through a natural maturation process, get stronger with each release. That would certainly be the case with Phragments. With their third full length studio CD, this Slovakian duo have made remarkable strides not only in quality but in scope. Equipped with an enriched sonic palate, Earth Shall Not Cover Their Blood mixes forceful brass and dark orchestral strings with rolls of powerful tribal percussion, somber wind instrumentation, ominous atmospheres, industrial clangor, and a strong and commanding vocal presence, particularly on tracks like “Over Deadlands” and “The Kin of Cain”. Cohesive, complete, and epic, this is a release that will open some eyes to new found authority of Phragments. Yours to discover. In 6 panel digipak

More than 70 minutes of music here is divided into two parts. The first one, featuring Alissa Nicolai on vocals, shows the band from a completely different angle; the other one presents the most important and interesting sessions recorded over the past few years, with a recording from CTM festival where they impressed the audience with "kuntunzangpo."
"Mantras of Bon" is an excellent introduction into the adventures with PHURPA, the world of Tibetan music filtered by contemporary reinterpretation free from rigid rules. It may enchant both those looking for interesting sacral music and the ones searching for a new form of sonic statement.

  RAPOON & PROMUTE - "Machine River" CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - Not only is Robin Storey aka Rapoon a very prolific solo artist, but also he collaborates with many musicians from all over the world. He has already worked with Mykel Boys, Wyrm, Pas Musique, Kinder Atom, Cisfinitum, Pacific 231 et al. This time he teamed up with Shaun Sandor aka Promute to create 8 haunting tracks. This is the story of their meeting in the words of Shaun Sandor: This collaboration between Rapoon and Promute is a direct result of the 2011 Endless Form Tour. For several nights in a row in different cities I sat in a swirling mist of sound conjured by Rapoon. The music easily generated notions of timelessness and seductive landscapes. In all of this, I was realizing that the electro-acoustic set that I was performing seemed to be a natural compliment to the music of Rapoon. I created several dozen tracks of homemade instruments, prepared guitar and bass, and sitar and sent them to Robin Storey to manipulate, process and edit. I asked my friend Des Kashyap to contribute some vocals as well, and he agreed. Robin added his music and vocals as well and did the arranging and mixing. The CD is housed in an ecopak sleeve and is strictly limited to 500 copies.



  RAPOON - "Seeds in the Tide Volume 3" digipack 2CD (Zoharum Records) - 13 euro - The third volume in our ongoing series of albums collating Rapoon's rarities from 2003 and 2004.

The cover was designed by Maciej Mehring based on Robin Storey's paintings. "Seeds in the Tide Volume 3" was mastered by £ukasz Miernik.





RAPOON - "To west and blue" CD  (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - "To West and Blue" is 50th RAPOON album. And this one will become a staple in our CD players for long time. 7 long, slowly evolving tracks appealing to your subconscious side. An album that is definitely not to everyone's tastes. This one gradually grows on you until you are captivated by its haunting beauty. But there is an underlying uneasiness in it. A sort of clash between reality and a ghost world or a world that is long-gone. With choral voices hidden beneath layers of treated sounds, "To West and Blue" is a stand-out album among RAPOON numerous releases.
Robin Storey talks about this album: These pieces are about the area grew up in in the UK. A peninsula of land which stuck out into the Solway Firth. Surrounded by the sea when the tide was in and surrounded by endless mudflats when the tide was out. When the water covered the ground the line between the sea and the sky was almost non-existent. A diaphanous boundary. The sea came in from the West where the huge skies hung without end in a vault of blue.


RAPOON - "Vernal Crossing Revisited" digipack 2CD (Zoharum Records)  - 13 euro - The double album celebrates the 20th anniversary of "Vernal Crossing" release, Robin Storey's third album. But it's not a mere reissue. The artist revisited the original and adapted it for the 21 century,hence the title. "Vernal Crossing Revisited" is two sides of the same coin: the first disc contains the original album and the other one being the 2013 reinterpretation of the original. This is Rapoon at its most rhythmic stage. Prepare yourself for the journey to the desert.

    RAPOON - "Seeds in the Tide Volume 01" digipack 2CD (Zoharum Records)   - 13 euro - "Seeds in the Tide" will collect all the rare tracks released on compilations, small or limited formats. The first disc entitled "Keepsakes and Oddities" contains tracks recorded between 1993 and 1999. The second one is a reissue of the ultra-limited CDR version of the well-known "Messianicghosts" album which inclides the original version of the four tracks from that album that are significantly different from their later variants.
The tracks were faithfully restored by Maciej Bartkowiak. The paintings on the cover is by Mr. Robin Storey himself.
    RAPOON - "Time-loop anomalies" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro - "Time-Loop Anomalies", the next RAPOON album after "Disappeared Redux", contains more than an hour of eerie, ethereal music lingering on the borderlands of dreamworld and reality. Robin Storey, the man behind the moniker, delivers yet again a subtle woven masterpiece, both being a bold step into the new world and in the vein of his earlier projects continuing recurring themes in his artistic work.




RAPOON - "Disappeared Redux" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 11 euro -  Album by the legendary avant-garde project. Robin Storey, the man behind the moniker, has been creating music incessantly for more than 3 decades and is responsible for inspiring legions of other artists with his music released together with Zoviet France and then with Rapoon, New Cult of the Sun Moon, Hand & Slim, and also under his own name. With almost 50 releases under his belt, Rapoon is a household name in the ambient world. 'Disappeared' is not entirely new album. It was first released in 2010 as a download and as an extremely limited CDR edition. Now it has been remixed and partly re-recorded especially for this Zoharum release totalling to 72 minutes (the original album was 7 minutes shorter). Hence the title, "Disappeared Redux".

The album is a dedicated and conceptional piece of work, based on one of the biggest tragedies of the past millennium. Musicalwise 7pm Rituals debut is the perfect blend of songs, influenced by Neofolk and orchestral, cinematic sounds bands that sometimes remind of early recordings of In The Nursery, but with a more folky edge. The songwriting as well as the sound quality are outstanding and there’s no doubt that 7pm Ritual and their musical diversity will leave a deep impact throughout the different genres mentioned before.

ROTO VISAGE - "Where The Mandrakes Grow" digipack CD (Autumn Wind Productions) - 11 euro -“Where the Mandrakes Grow” is conceptualized around autoerotic asphyxiation, forming an abstract narrative into a singular autoerotic experience. A singular moment in flux within the body. The sound compositions consist of consciousness cut ups – flashes of memory and anomalies of the moment interweaving. Dark drone and experimental ambience. Mastered by the legendary Robert Rich. Beautiful 6-panal digi-CD designed by Anastasia Sarandou limited to 1,000 copies. 64 minutes.
