Nyodene D – Edenfall CD + Bonus CD (feat. Sektor 304)

Nyodene D – Edenfall CD + Bonus CD (feat. Sektor 304)
Malignant Records
This is the second full-length CD release from this Ohio based death industrial act. If you are not quite familiar with the project yet Nyodene D focuses on repetitive crusty noise reminding me of a combination between Brighter Death Now and old school Grunt.
On Edenfall the influence of Europe After Storm-era Grunt is quite palpable. The most obvious element here is the repeating loops that act as a backbone to each track and then added noise and distorted vocals. …

Blue Sabbath Black Cheer (Seattle, WA)
Blue Sabbath Black Cheer – The Sense of Violence
Blue Sabbath Black Cheer (BSBC) formed in winter 2005, by wm.Rage and Stan Reed, rehearsing after-hours in the Electric Heavyland (R.I.P.) record store in Seattle, Washington, before moving into an all concrete garage in the alley behind the record store, where they rehearsed incessantly for the next 2 years, much to the dismay of the nearby neighbors.

Noise Walls Have Become Small

NOISE WALLS HAVE BECOME SMALL
OUT OF HIS PITY FOR THE LAST MAN HATH GOD DIED

By clemon09
Noise walls have become small, and on it there hoppeth the last man who maketh everything small. His species is inexterminable like that of the ground-flea; the last man liveth longest.
“We have discovered happiness”- say the last men, and blink thereby…
Everything is intrinsically meaningless, but things can be extrinsically more or less meaningless, if not absolutely so. I call this their noisiness.
Social Drift’s somewhat bold idea is that nosiness has become a quality of …

Shift & Hal Hutchinson – Full Weight of the Opposition 10"EP

Shift & Hal Hutchinson – Full Weight of the Opposition 10″EP
Unsound Recordings
I believe Unsound Recordings is a sublabel of Unrest Productions the label run by Martin of Shift. Shift, having been reviewed here before releases sounds ranging from raging power electronics to minimal harsh noise. Hal Hutchinson however, I am unfamiliar with so this is my first exposure. The packaging here is simple stock with black & white print. Nothing to write home about but a decent presentation.
Pigshit is the first track which takes up all of side A and …

Herpes Ö Deluxe – Tollerort Organisation Verfügt 7"

Herpes Ö Deluxe – Tollerort Organisation Verfügt 7″
Divergent Series
Divergent Series is a Boston based label (soon to be relocating to San Francisco) from the man behind FRKSE who has been reviewed here before. I’m not familar with Herpes Ö Deluxe but they are said to be “Swiss Legends” from the label. Skepticism set on high as I delve into the tracks.
Well the words of the label could ring no truer because immediately the record impresses with Friester Auf Der Lauer an incredibly weird yet creepy layering of strange sounds culminating …
