Black Earth – Diagrams of a Hidden Order mCD

Black Earth – Diagrams of a Hidden Order mCD
Malignant Records
Ambient black metal in this day and age is a far cry from the warped primitive manifestations of Abruptum‘s In Umbra… (RIP Tony), so I really appreciated that Black Earth didn’t go the purely electronic route of flitting evil touches and general “grim” vagaries that adjective oriented artists like. This mCD is a hazy and flagellating test that rewards listeners on multiple levels.
Black Earth‘s bandied color descriptor and geometry cult designs are among the things that make me grimace. …

Starboxxx: E02: Addendum 5″ Lathe

Starboxxx – E02: Addendum 5″ Lathe
Empty Space Collective
This is an awesome little serving of cut-up sound oriented trip hop insanity from mysterious Swedish short player Starboxxx. Primarily focusing on the more musique concrete aspects of sample-based composition, these two modest tracks pack in quite a bit of sustenance. Side one fondues itself in a collection of hard fucking drums and knobby noodlings and side two goes skittish and then spooky warping time and space.
The 5″ lathe format offers two really unique perspectives on this genre of music – …

Анатомический Атлас Compilation CS
UIS LABEL
Looking for one of the best experimental compilations of this year? Анатомический Атлас not only has a great array of artists, but a really compelling and cohesive theme. Great curation and a mandatory acquisition!
Анатомический Атлас means anatomical atlas. Each track covers a certain aspect of medicine with respect to the enlightenment era and the tracks cover HNW, dark ambient, and power electronics. The tracks are sequenced impeccably in such a way that there are two distinct build-ups. The art for this …

Torture Corpse – Third Human Sacrifice to Samhain lathe

Torture Corpse – Third Human Sacrifice to Samhain lathe
Auris Apothecary
From Auris Apothecary comes a fetid and grim piece of work from Dutch mastermind Torture Corpse in the usually disregarded lathe cut novelty format. Somehow, Torture Corpse managed to edge a surprising amount of depth with this release which features his Buddhist-tinted, pungent HNW approach. The track is pretty straightforward rumbling and cage shaking, laced with some possible guitar elements and a lot of static. Separating the actual track from the poly-carbon surface noise and imperfections is a great …

Trepaneringsritualen/Body Cargo – Split LP

TRP/Body Cargo split LP
Autarkeia
TRP‘s songs play like b-sides from Perfection and Permanence. It contains two of his ambient works that harkens back to the Martyrium cassette but with the gloss of his success at setting up sparse synth sounds and mortar fire bass drums that peak with a quiet crescendo of ghoulish tact and another more defined track. Having no real idea exactly where “Unclæna Ghast” and “Gravfärd” begins, the listener is left with one continuous distant lawnmower clipping bag of a track that goes on for too …

Jib Kidder – New Works for Realistic Mixer 2016

Jib Kidder – New Works for Realistic Mixer 2016 CD-r
Care of Editions
Every so often, a record label forms to transform some aspect of the industry, however minute or grand. Care Of Editions‘ shtick is offering a certain number of paid (as in you get paid to download) downloads for every physical copy sold of an album sold. The handy guide in the back tells me that there is a non-linear, inverse relationship between vinyl sales and downloads. The more vinyl sold, the more one is paid because …

Headstone Brigade – Divine Vestiges FREE EP now available!

We would like to introduce Headstone Brigade which is the new folk project of Egan Budd/Xiphoid Dementia with this free downloadable and streaming EP featuring covers and traditional arrangements of folk songs. Headstone Brigade’s sound can be described as neofolk or melodramatic pop with a sea shanty twist due to the main instrument of accordion being featured in almost all tracks. This free EP is a precursor to a full-length which is coming later this year on Brave Mysteries.
Please check out the EP Divine Vestiges over at Headstone Brigade’s bandcamp …

Interview with Ionophore

Based in two locations, Ionophore is the product of Leila Abdul-Rauf, Jan Hendrich, and Ryan Honaker. Dark electronics, beats, industrial soundscapes – Ionophore weaves in and out of styles on their second full length album entitled Sinter Pools. The album has been stuck in my rotation for a while as I’ve been inclined towards something more pleasant but still rewarding to listen to. As such, Sinter Pools is saturated with electronic manipulations and organic instrumentation that are densely packed into an album that is easily one of …

Regosphere & Vomit Arsonist – An Inquiry Concerning the Indications of Insanity C20

Regosphere & Vomit Arsonist – An Inquiry Concerning the Indications of Insanity C20
DumpsterScore
Having appeared on a split 7″, An Inquiry… is proper collaboration at last, but alas it is but a short journey. There is some strong evidence these two Andy’s should work together again as the content focuses on a re-visitation of common themes the two artists have explored (cognitive processes, mental health) and the two artists’ styles mesh very well together.
Side A’s “Mechanized Lobotomy” and “Nurse, The Scalpel Please…” are conservatively sculpted blankets of sound that tinker …
