JARL / ENVENOMIST - "Tunguska Event" CD (Zoharum Records) - 15 zł - 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.)

JESUS OF NAZARETH / EXPLODING METH LAB – "The Seed Mouth Collection" CDr (Crucial Blast) - 10 zł - 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 (Obuh Records) - 30 zł - 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 Bagiński, let happiness and joy be with him for now and ever.

Adam z Bremy. W okresie panowania pierwszych Piastów gród ten, nazywany w tekstach Jumme, Jóm albo Jómi, był jednym z najważniejszych skandynawskich emporiów nad Bałtykiem zamieszkanym przez Słowian oraz Wikingów. W tym miejscu mieszkali waleczni wojownicy rządzący się własnymi prawami - i o nich właśnie i o ich czynach jest ta opowieść ...

A close follow up to their 2001 self tilted debut.

LA PIETRA LUNARE – "Same" CD (Lichterklang) - 15 zł - La Pietra Lunare's debut is a concept album dedicated to the mysteries of Italy. 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".

LES COLONNES DE L'ÉTERNITÉ - "A Soldier Of Lifeforce" Digipack CD (Lichterklang) Limited edition 300 copies - 15 zł - 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.

  MACHINEFABRIEK - "The Measures Taken" CD (Zoharum Records) - 15 zł - 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) - WYPRZEDANE -  



  MACIEK SZYMCZUK & SLOWTION - "Ways" digipack CD (Zoharum Records) - 20 zł - 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) - 30 zł - 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)  - 30 zł - 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) - 15 zł - 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) - 15 zł - ‘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).




MERZBOW - "Minazo vol. 1" CD (Importand Records) - 25 zł -  Minazo was raised at the Enoshima Aquarium in Kanagawa Prefecture. With a strong build, 5 meters in height and 2 tons in weight, he was the only male elephant seal in Japan. Director Yukiko Hori said in her book, The Story of An Aquarium (published by Iwanami Shoten) that Minazo was brought to Japan from Uruguay in 1995. His name, which consists of three Kanji characters meaning "beautiful," "male," and "elephant," was chosen from 1,500 public suggestions. The aquarium had raised male and female elephant seals called Daikichi and Omiya, who had been brought from the Antarctic island of South Georgia in 1964. After they died in 1977 and 1979, specimens were made using their skins, which are currently displayed at the aquarium. Hori said that the previous experience with the two seals was of help in raising Minazo.



MERZBOW - "Scsi Duck" CD (Fourth Dimension) - 25 zł -  Harsh electronics innovator Masami Akita. "It‚s been years since I've reviewed a Merzbow CD. Every other month I see a new release surface yet I hesitate to listen. After the 10 CDs I've heard in the past, I was expecting the same old harsh white noise; I'm happy to say that I was wrong. "Greenman", the opener, starts with a junk percussion sound and quickly turns violent and spacious, with plenty of layers and textures. "Rock Me Booa" is also pounding and percussive, with more focus on the wall of electronics and swirling feedback. Loud and abrasive is "Untitled 12," a thirteen minute piece. "Herpos Suite" clocks in at 26 minutes and is very hard to get through. Very uneasy, very loud. My attention span is more in the five minute marker, but good nonetheless. Once again Masami Akita proves he is the king of noise; Japanese or otherwise.

MERZBOW - "Scene" CD  (Waystyx) - 20 zł -  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) - 25 zł - 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. The tracks were created in London and Tokyo, with each artist remixing the other's original sounds. Two tracks weighing in at 22 minutes apiece! Dark Ambient Noise in a special textured card digisleeve.

MERZBOW - "Camouflage" CD (Essence Music)  - 25 zł - 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! "Camouflage" plays by the straight MERZBOW rules, going back to his comfort zone of audio barbarism. Ltd x 800 copies in a deluxe gatefold hardback sleeve.

MOLJEBKA PVLSE – "Discourse On Lightness" digipack CD (Reverse Alignment) - 25 zł - As the title "Discourse on Lightness" suggest, the new album explore the semantics of "light". As "light" can have obvious different meaning, the three tracks that comprise Mathias Josefson's new album also has a different approach soundwise. As entering track "A History of Levitation" takes a swarming grip on drone with carefully laid out details the second one, "Between Lightness & Luminance", is more experimental, unpredictable to it's character but still keeps to the format. Ending track "A Field Guide to the Sunrise" is somewhat a mixture between the two previous, as if two unmatched views or discourses becomes one common.




MOLJEBKA PVLSE – "Zojo" digipack CD (Greytone) - 15 zł - 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.

  NADJA – "Desire In Uneasiness" digigatefold CD (Crucial Blast) - 20 zł - 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) - 15 zł - 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) - 15 zł - 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) - 20 zł - 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.

O PARADIS – "Llega El Amor, Asoma La Muerte" CD (Dark Vinyl Records) - 30 zł - O Paradis is the work of Demian Recio. Since fifteen years Demian is now creating a melancholic Mediterranean feeling in his music, free from all general trends and hypes. On this trip he met several artists (like Novy Svet, Val Denham or Thomas Nola among others ) and the result was a common cooperation and inspiration. If we understand the work of O Paradis as a long search for Demian`s own aim, we could say that his new creature "Llega el Amor, Asoma la Muerte", can be seen as his "Ithaca" or personal masterpiece. There are fresh new inspirations / directions in this album, but we recognize also a homecoming to his old love for Latin music and the melancholy of English folk music , but all under the gaze / banner of the death. Ladies and gentlemen, you are invited to participate : "La Muerte" (The Death) is coming with a smile on his face.

ORCHIS - "A Thousand Winter" digipack CD (Infinite Fog Productions) - 20 zł - "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) - WYPRZEDANE - 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) - 15 zł - 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) - 15 zł - 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.

    PARANOIA INDUCTA "From the Depths" A5 digi CD (Rage in Eden) - 25 zł - „From the Depths” spontaneously closed formed earlier trilogy („Evil Angel”. „Maze of Death” and „From the Depths”).

PHURPA - "Mantras of Bon" CD (Zoharum Records) - 30 zł - The magic and strength of their music has been appreciated by Stephen O'Malley among others, who released one of their albums on his own label. Zoharum would like to present the latest album by the band entitled "Mantras of Bon." It is an extraordinary release, even for such an extraordinary and unusual project as PHURPA. 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.

PIEVOS - "Mėnuli baltas" CD (Dangus Records) - 20 zł - The original Lithuanian group's second album shines with a strong poetry and ancient folklore, dark alternative rock, acoustic tunes. The rich female singing of vocalist Virginija is impressive indeed, accompanied with solid guitar lines, melancholic violin, flute and accordion harmonies which add a fine neo-folk feel. Tinted with exciting strokes, the poetical music of Pievos carries us on the wings of soulful harmonies to the northern Lithuania, where one can find answers to all the questions of life among the charm whispering meadows, praying trees and lurking mires. Lyrics in Lithuanian. CD comes with a nice wrapper, 11 songs.
POETS TO THEIR BELOVED - "Embrace the Fool" Digipak CD (Equilibrium Music) - WYPRZEDANE

PUSTOTA - "Greatest Hits" CDR (Zhelezobeton) - 9 zł - A collection of the best pieces by the conceptual project Pustota maintained by Evgeniy Savenko (Lunar Abyss, Hattifnatter, Boevye Cikady, etc.) to explore various forms of manifestation and convergence of the acoustic spaces and artifacts. Repeatedly amplified noise of old magnetic tape, work of tape-recorder mechanisms and technical faults, electro-magnetic interference, running through the tube cascades of the old amplifiers, impersonal urban and field recordings caught on cassette dictaphones - all this is tesselated in a sort of mosaic of textural sonic events. All compositions except one were previously released in extended forms by BioSonar^Lo-End label in tiny editions of 7-15 cassettes with deliberately absurd handmade artwork.

  RAPOON & PROMUTE - "Machine River" CD (Zoharum Records) - 30 zł - 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) - 35 zł - The third volume in our ongoing series of albums collating Rapoon's rarities from 2003 and 2004. As always it's composed of 2 discs.

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





RAPOON - "To west and blue" CD  (Zoharum Records) - 30 zł - "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)  - 35 zł - 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)   - 35 zł - "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) - 30 zł - "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) - 30 zł -  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".


RASALHAGUE - "Theories Behind Chaos" 3'CDr (Rasalhague Music) - WYPRZEDANE


RECLUSA - "The AntiConscience" CDR + ART ZINE (Crucial Blast) - 15 zł - ...a new offering of vile, absurdly heavy low-fi mechanized horror from this cult Ohio outfit. A seventy-seven minute descent into filthy sub-Godflesh / (early) Pitch Shifter machine pummel, putrescent guttural vocal-fumes, ultra bleak dark ambience, diseased dub, deformed deathdoom, blasts of orchestral terror, & murky industrial noisescapes. Hopeless, terminally nihilistic ugliness from the bowels of the American Midwest. The disc comes with a 20-page chapbook of nightmarish artwork and writing...

    REFUSE TO DIE - "The Piper At The Gates of Donna" CDR (T'an! Kaven!! Ash!!!) - 9 zł - Weird experimental work «The piper at the gates of Donna» of acknowledged Israeli industrial avant-garde project Refuse To Die. Comes in white digipack with disco styled artwork.  
    REFUSE TO DIE - "The Penguin" CDR (T'an! Kaven!! Ash!!!) - 9 zł - Weird experimental work «The Penguin» of acknowledged Israeli industrial avant-garde project Refuse To Die.

  REUTOFF - "No One's Lullabies" CD (Zhelezobeton) - 19 zł - "No One's Lullabies" is the 9th album by Reutoff, one of the best-known Russian projects on the international post-industrial scene. Over the course of one hour they will be performing their "lullabies" which won't let you sleep though... The whole panopticon of borderline mental states will unfold before the eyes of our attention. Every track is a masterfully performed decadent dance of emotions and feelings. Steady industrial rhythms, an unhasting but assertive semi-drunk waltz, circus-like grotesque with wicked medieval shades, comatose jazz swinging in dark tones and epic electronic doom that could also fit well in the repertoire of their brother-project Otzepenevshiye - all imbued with remarkable spirit and slightly inflamed imagination.  



  RITUAL – ":08:16:02:" digipack CD (Lichterklang) - 15 zł - 7pm Ritual is the new project of the founding Stein members Norbert Strahl, Nic Sender and Oliver Sittig who reunited for spontaneous jam-session after a couple of years, which finally resulted in “:08:16:02”. 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.  
      ROSEGARDEN - "Novenna" CD (Dying Art Production) - WYPRZEDANE  


  ROTO VISAGE - "Where The Mandrakes Grow" digipack CD (Autumn Wind Productions) - 25 zł - “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.
