And once again it has been way too long since I have updated this blog.. It does not mean that I have given up, it’s mainly because I don’t have that much time nowadays.. But let’s start with this cassette that arrived today. Ungraven.. waited for this to arrive so freaking long that I almost gave up but here it is. And if you didn’t already know, this industrial-blackened-heavy-sludge release has something to with Jon Davis (Conan).. Holy hell, I […]
While visiting the local record store the other day I asked the owner to recommend some records and he did, one was that Ättestupa’s album I wrote about earlier. I also bought two other records and this latest from Puce Mary was one of those. Really strange record, filled with strange tunes and in some twisted way I really enjoy these soundscapes. Noise, electronics, industrial, experimental are the words to describe this. Not bad at all, I just have to […]
Got this one from The Flenser few days ago. I’m smiling, just because this album is totally insane. Noise, industrial, samples, hardcore.. you name it. I can’t help myself but some distant way this reminds me of Johnny Violent and his awesome album “Shocker”. Anyways, this is refreshing album in every possible way. If you want to blow your brains away with music, try this one. This colored version is limited to 250 copies but first hundred copies came with […]
Finally I “managed” to purchase this awesome compilation from Gagarin Kombinaatti. These tunes were recorded on tape back in 1983-85 and now (at last) we are able to hear these tracks from vinyl, thanks to Mika Vainio (Panasonic, Pan Sonic, Ø, Philus, Kentolevi.. etc.). And yes, Vainio plays drums & synths on this industrial, experimental group called Gagarin Kombinaatti. This record shows that there was very lively underground scene of experimental & industrial music in Finland back then, even though only […]
Yes, new release from Alessandro Cortini. What can I say, brilliant record this is (like all the previous releases from this artist). There’s two tracks on this 12″ and I find this recording very dark, hopeless.. in other words it’s a beauty. I have no idea of limitation but this is available from numerous stores, for example from following ones Piccadilly Records, Norman Records, Red Eye Records. Grab a copy and step into the darkness. More, please (and soon!)
Strange album. The best possible way. This was released by Profound Lore Records (company that has put a spell on me with awesome releases) and it’s Psalm Zero’s second album, the first one I have heard. There’s no need to put this one under some specific genre just because its way too difficult to describe their music, is it industrial metal flavoured with some kind of cold wave or something. Anyways, I purchased this based on one track and I’m […]
Phil Collins yes, but not that one.This is a strange collaboration/compilation of ambient, electronical, kraut, experimental, industrial, etc.. music with artists like Pye Corner Audio, Heroin In Tahiti, Demdike Stare, David Sylvian just to name few. Strange record but some how very beautiful record. If you are interested to know more about this project I suggest you to visit Nero magazine. First pressing was limited to 500 copies and when it sold out there came 2nd pressing, identical to first […]
I nearly skipped this one (do not even ask why..) but suddenly I came to my senses and purchased this white vinyl version from Profound Lore. My first album from Prurient and I have to say that this release leaves me speechless.. overwhelming & astonishing one. This release needed a little time and patience but suddenly it revealed itself to me. Don’t even know what genre to put this one because there obviously are influences from all of them.. electronics, […]
Abysssss… is calling.. Chelsea with her latest release and like before, I’m sold. Crushing & haunting is this double album. Stellar one. Mysterious is this artist & her music. Can’t help myself but somehow this artist reminds me of another awesome musician, Polly Jean. Excellent album, once again. Available from Sargent House (EU) and those who live in states can easily order their copies from Sargent’s HelloMerch store. If I have understand this right, there are three different color variation available via […]
I have this strange obsession with Vatican Shadow, I must purchase every damn vinyl release from this artist and I can’t help it (few I have missed though). Some kind of post-apocalyptic (experimental/industrial) electronics is the name of the game here and I really enjoy games like this. Initial copies (300) comes on colored vinyl and sad but true, it seems that this colored version is sold out. Regular copies available for example from Juno Records, Kompakt, Red Eye Records, […]
Once I heard this record I just couldn’t resist purchasing it. Even though there are goth elements on this album I prefer this to be more like industrialized, droned dark ambient. There is surely something dark lurking behind these tunes… This is totally new duo/band to me and thanks goes to Bart (one of my readers, who actually has a nice blog of his own) for leading me to this record via his recommendations. I managed to find this white […]
Yep, nicely titled album from Vatican Shadow. Hopeless record, and that’s just good. Maybe this is post-apocalyptic techno? No hope for humankind.. But damn this sounds good! Do not know about limitation but initial copies came on blue vinyl and I think that those are gone by now but you can get regular version for example from Boomkat.
And little avant-garde-jazz-industrial-metal-noise for the people. I have known this band for ages but this is the first record I have bought from their catalogue. Now I know what I have missed. Wonderful record for those who can walk their ears and eyes open. Love. If I’m not totally wrong, this orange version is limited to 100 copies, and of course there is regular black version available. Both versions seems to be available from Prosthetic Records.
What a beautiful record this is. Bought this nearly a year ago and this was my first touch with this band, damn. Surprisingly I’m trying to get all releases from this band on vinyl.. hoarder.. This is limited to 200 copies on yellow (+ yellow 7″) and 300 on black vinyl. Available from Denovali, both versions.
Old treasure from my record rack. Bad Vugum released this twisted seven-inch nearly 20 years ago. Gunni, from Island, mixing industrial/electronic/punk to unique wall of sound. Copies of this can be found at least from Discogs or maybe from Ebay. There’s no clips from this EP, but here’s some sample from youtube what this stuff is like.
I really do not remember when I purchased this one and that is a shame. Brilliant dark ambient recording. Damn. Where was this band when I needed them most? This is sold out from the label, Blackest Ever Black and Boomkat has also sold this out. You can find this dark ambient/industrial flower easily from discogs for very decent prize.
Hmm.. today has been “little Christmas” to me. Currier brought this an hour ago. Ministry and “Last sucker” first time on vinyl. Nice cover, like it a lot. This is limited to 400 copies and seems that this is still available from Nuclear Blast. It’s quite expensive.. but I had to have this one.
