New reviews of Existence Establishment releases

Bereft/Fire In The Head – MA/PE/FU Vol. 1 LP
From Heathen Harvest webzine:

Concrete. A perfect metaphor for the hardcore spirit that infects both the past and the present state of the Massachusetts underground. It is the brutal, severed face of American power electronics. It greets flesh with all the subtlety of a nuclear blast wave, and its only voice is the crushing crumble under the rumble of an Earthquake or the gut-wrenching clash of jagged metal against itself, the white noise of the heavy rain that washes away …

*DELETED*

Lavas Magmas is the project of Luis Gonzalez hailing from Portland, Oregon. After touring with Regosphere and specializing in sound and video projects it was decided to focus a DVDR/CDR release on Existence Establishment. Lavas Magmas creates industrial ambience with a precision that is rarely heard from artists today. Pulsating oscillations collide with unearthly scrap metal improvisations and ghostly drones to form a thick tapestry of otherwordly brilliance.
Accompanying the CDR is a DVDR mind-altering video/audio experience that utilizes convergence of saturated, vivid source material and manipulations which portray a plethora …

Even spanning into weird ambience, synth-pop and cybergrind influences.
With Lackthrow’s Release Existence Establishment strives to present a cohesive …

From Heathen Harvest webzine:

GM Electronics is a decade-old experimental / noise project from UK-based sound explorer Jirí Balšínek. Though originally from Hustopece, Czech Republic, his relocation to Driffeld, UK seems to put him in place for a larger audience, even though the town is 30 miles from the closest city in York. Though you’re more likely to know him through this project, Jirí also owns …

Review of BT.HN/Sistrenatus – Exposing the Ribcage CDR from Animal Psi

The guys over at Animal Psi were kind enough to write their thoughts on BT.HN/Sistrenatus – Exposing the Ribcage CDR.
“‘Exposing the Ribcage’ is a pile-up live Noise collaboration involving BT.HN (Sam McKinlay of The Rita and Josh Rose of Sick Buildings) and Sistrenatus (H MacFarlane). This six-handed way to kill an hour leaves little slack in this massive track, and the tripling of efforts means any idiosyncratic misstep is redressed by the oversight of the averages. This is not to say all we get is 65 minutes of …

EE14: GM ELECTRONICS – TRASHWALKER CDR

*DELETED*

Trashwalker is a post-apocalyptic journey through waste strewn fields of radiated digital noise. GM Electronics presents a chaotic, multi textured, walk through, dark ruined streets littered with needles and debris, teaming with desperate characters seeking some sort of seedy appeasement. Originally recorded in 2004 and released in a limited edition first on I.N.K. Recordings, then once again re-released on Cyberblast Records. Now Existence Establishment once again revives this abandoned matter for yet another strictly limited run with all new artwork and packaging.

MA/PE/FU article in the Boston Phoenix

Special thanks to Ian Duncan-Brown for his inspired article about the first EE vinyl release and first volume of the MA/PE/FU series!
Here’s the introduction, follow the link to read the article in it’s entirety:
Beneath New England’s long-established hardcore, metal, and indie scenes lies the increasingly vital subculture of noise and power electronics. Once or twice a month, an unsightly, intimidating crowd packs into a dingy basement in Allston or Somerville, where they stand shoulder-to-shoulder and exchange barbed, sidelong glances as they jostle for space at the front.
As the artists set …

Paul Casey over at Rock! Shock! Pop! has been kind enough to write up a glowing review of Existence Establishment’s first vinyl release! MA/PE/FU Vol. 1 is still available at the shop.
About four hundred years ago, a bunch of losers left England because their religion wasn’t strict enough. Instead of doing a massive group castration and subsequent suicide (why live without the batteries to your funmobile?), they sailed across the Atlantic Ocean. Unfortunately, they settled in Massachusetts, and this place still holds a lot of the same ideals that existed …

Here is the review in it’s entirety:

‘Might is Blight’ offers up quite a varied, original and often bleakly epic mixture of: electronic and junk based industrial textures, powerful and avant grade tinged neo-classical elements, animal and environmental field recordings, power electronics and cinematic tinged noise.
Each of the six ten minute plus tracks that make up the album seem to tell their own distinctive sound story and tale …

Existence Establishment helps usher in the Canadian invasion with this brutal masterpiece of wall-noise drone.
