EE21: XIPHOID DEMENTIA / BASTARD NOISE – HUMAN EXTINCTION ENGINE LP

*purchase this from the shop*

Human Extinction Engine is a split record between the throttling yet textured death industrial of Xiphoid Dementia and the harsh space ambience of Bastard Noise. Conceptually both artists unite in seeing a world where humans slowly tighten the noose around their own neck through “advancement” and “industry”. Yet each artist reflects this concept in very different ways. On side A Xiphoid Dementia turns inward with cryptic spoken samples and delivers one track of pummeling industrial, one track of seething dark ambience, and concludes his piece with …

Human Extinction Engine Reviews!

The reviews have started rolling in. Here’s what the press is saying:

From The Doorway To:
This Split starts with Xiphoid Dementia and the best way to describe what I’m getting is Noisy Electro Martial Industrial vibe . I feel like a cyber war/nightmare is going on its very apocalyptic in presentantion and has the dark industrial deep drones and drifts mixed in. The percussion is just sinister and creepy in that Martial/warlike way adding to the power behind it. The sample / vocal part are eerie in good way I really …

FILE UNDER: HARSH NOISE / EXPERIMENTAL / INDUSTRIAL NOISE
I am old, and so this is how I prefer to experience festivals now. Fuck having to buy a plane ticket, travel all the way to a distant city only to spend countless hours holed up in a dingy club. Now I can appreciate the festival sights and sounds, energy and vibes all in the comfort of my living room. This DVD has really incredible quality featuring mixing …

Janzeits/Altered Form 7″

Janzeits/Altered Form 7″

Anthems Of The Undesirable Bandcamp Link

Janzeits and Altered Form both hail from the US but conjure a nostalgia for German ambient and modular artists of the 80’s that hits the hammer on der Kopf.

Janzeits’ name might be recognizable if you’ve dug into the deep discography of Chad Davis whose work includes playing for Hour of 13 and Subklinik. Fresh from his recent full length called Cosmic Orbits, here he takes a chaotic and spacious axe to the modular palette of jagged triangle waves and precise envelope filtering to …

Compactor/Vitriol Gauge – Economic Devastation CS
Bandcamp link
It’s been a minute since I last reviewed something, but I have to say, this review pulled me out of the tomb I’ve been in. Destructive sounds from two similarly minded industrial artists comprise this take on economic progress, and damn is it a rewarding experience.
The oversized tape box format is underutilized for the most part. Thankfully the team at Waste Management knew how to maximize the dimensions perfectly. It’s not often that I am taken aback by how thoughtful inserts are since most …
