Rukkanor - Despartica - Face Two [2008]

1 Death (4:31)
2 Leisure (3:58)
3 A Long, Long Sleep, A Famous Sleep (3:36)
4 Sea Fever (3:58)
5 High Flight (4:29)

7 Mad Song (5:15)
8 Stars (3:49)
9 The Dead (4:54)
10 When You Are Old (2:21)
11 Past Present Future (3:30)

The mixture of styles and musical ages. Echoes of 70's electronic, new romantic of 80's (OMD, Numan, Heaven 17, Visage). A bit of industrial, a pinch of EBM, a touch of synth-pop. Second part of the specific interpretation of 19th and 20th Century poetry. This time in more gothic and electromantic "musical sauce". Achtung! No martial nor neo-folk songs. A very last album of Rukkanor.



Lacus Somniorum - Tideshaper [2008]

1. Tideshaper
2. An Intangible World
3. Hinterland
4. Beyond All Things Is The Ocean
5. Point Of No Ascent
6. Phasis
7. Sentient Abyss
8. 11°22'N 142°36'E

Splendid collaborative work between Gustaf Hildebrand and Amanda Votta, Lacus Somniorum emerged as a mutual desire to convey a suggestive concept of what lies hidden and unseen by the eyes of modern civilization--beneath the waves in murky chasms, or perhaps in places not anchored within our concept of reality. Airy flutes and choirs hover above sometimes distant, rumbling sound textures, hinting of corroded machinery and unseen presences but also emphasizing a sense of serenity and peace of mind. The underlying concept is not fear of the unknown, but rather of a hidden beauty within those places where none of us will ever venture.

Edition of 1000 copies in fold-out cardboard sleeve.

2- To Break A Heart
3- L' Ivresse

7- Dos Kelbl
8- Du Mein Einzig
9- Danse De L' Obscurité
10- Die Sonne Im Geiste
11- Die Gedanken Sind Frei
12- Sonnentanz

* Track 1 was divided into two tracks

This is the first full-lenght album from Hekate, “Sonnentanz”, proves its evolution. The music is sort of a mixture of neo-folk and medieval styles, completed with powerful drumming and use of electronics. Hekate consists of many members and a rich instrumentarium and with several vocalists (male and female), so that the songs are pretty varied. Sometimes it sounds bombastic, with martial drums and trumpets, sometimes fragile and beautiful with female voices and acoustic guitars and strings. Most lyrics are in German, but there are also texts in French, Yiddish and old German. My favourite track is "Du mein einzig", and was my first approach to the sound of Hekate, that was in V.A. Miroque Vol. VI, that i buy some years ago.

Kauan - Lumikuuro (2007)

This is the debut album from an eclectic Russian band named Kauan. This album incorporates lots of different influences, namely doom metal, black metal, ambient, folk, classical, and you'll even hear the odd sax. Despite the large amount of influences, this album does not feel in the least bit crowded or overly complex, they pulled it off very well, it's quite lo-fi and slow paced, in that sense the dominant characteristic of this album is largely of doom metal. The atmospheres created by the ambient keys, guitars and mix of clean and growled vocals come together very beautifully.

Released on BadMoodMan Music, sub-label of Solitude Productions.

CD-1. Opheilia/Ulunda

CD-3. Snow
CD-4. Satyr
CD-5. Invasion
CD-6. Babel
CD-7. Yuki
CD-8. Night

The first studio album of Hybryds since “Electric Voodoo” (2002).
"Dreambient" is based on exploration of the female characters from the Pagan past: archetypes of the seducer, the demon, the girl, the whore, the slave, the mistress, the priest, the mother...
The music of the project has become more accessible for unexpirienced listeners: traditional ambient-ritual basement is enriched with rhythmic electronics, melodic synthesizer tunes and even guitar parts.
Vocals are now done by Madeline Arndt from the German darkwave/gothic band Schattenkinder.
One hour DVD contains “The Photoshop art of Sandy Viktor Nys”, the erotic esoteric videos from Hybryds mastermind – “Religion and erotica melds together on the stage of Eros and Thanatos”.

13 Gesang an den Horusfalken
14 Falken-Eid II

Two and a half years after “Sterbender Satyr”, Orplid are back with their fourth studio album “Greifenherz”.
In contrast to their previous outing, this album is filled with pathos, a belligerent and archaic piece of work.
“Greifenherz” is informed with a surprisingly hostile and cold atmosphere - a partially menacing and martial sound Orplid haven’t applied since some of the more violent outbursts of their early works.
Reflections of dreams about war, death, and decay.

" Hekate was formed in 1993, for the time being as an atonal-project. Hekates first ever performance was in the spring of the same year during an art exhibition at an advanced technical college in Koblenz. Soon there after, a fusion of several stylistic elements into a symbiosis emerged from the strong naturalistic-folkloric relation of each band-member. The music is mainlybased on the use of classical percussions like kettle drums, timpanis, snare- and bass drums and chinese gongs combined with acoustic guitars and middle-aged instruments as e.g. hurdy gurdy. The musical background is completed by use of modern synthesizers. The lyrics are presented by alternating male and female singing in German, English and French- and other tongues such as Latin, Jidish or Middle-Age-German. "

Cover printed on heavy wood. White vinyl. Comes with text booklet and sticker.

Founded on a prophecy about the downfall of humanity and the end of the world, the Norwegian industrial death metal band V:28 set out on a musical journey through a world in turmoil. Their three albums, NonAnthropogenic, SoulSaviour and VioLution released by Vendlus Records, constitute the Total Deconstruction trilogy, where the band dug far into the dark matter of the human mind in search for the ultimate apocalypse. The burning desire to explore new musical territories lead to a multitude of interesting collaborations and approaches within the extreme metal genre. As a result, V:28 has in many ways been a groundbreaking act in their field.

The idea of doing a remix album was spawned at an early stage in the band's existence. Carefully selected artists were invited to use V:28 source material to make their own interpretation of a chosen track. Not only does this release mark the end of the band, but it also showcases the experimental side of the band and much of what has been a great source of inspiration for the cinematic and apocalyptic sound of V:28. - The Total Reconstruction was born!

8 Offering | Sacrifice (6:28)
9 Declaration Of Innocence † Aralim (10:38)

Limited numbered edition of 500 copies in a metal box!
Exactly one year after the highly acclaimed 'Dead Cities' the
man who we know better as Ah Cama-Sotz (Batman to his friends)
presents a new album on his own Bats and Cats label. Hidden
inside a metal CD-case lies the 'Declaration of Innocence',
guarded by the characteristic circular logo of the Bat.
In ten tracks Ah Cama-Sotz tells the story of a journey - how
your soul is transported into another dimension. Events on this
journey involve a certain 'Sacrifice' as instructed by 'Voices
from the Dark', a visit to 'Warszawa' and - albeit from a
distance - watch the 'Decline of the Roman Empire'.
And like a true journey, the view out of the window is gorgeous.
Varied and dynamic as we have gotten to know the talent of our
tour-conductor. There are moments of deep dub with heavily
distorted guitars, ambient neo-classical soundscapes, Arabian,
as well as ritualistic influences. And the additional vocals of
Fleur Pierets turn the rockiest mountain into the garden of eden.
With 'Declaration of innocence' Ah Cama-Sotz succeeds again in
delivering an album which completely fucks up the inside of your
head and therefore changes your perspective of a world filled
with blood, guilt, sin and innocence.

Finally after a long pause, the new A CHALLENGE OF HONOUR album is out now! their last album "Seven Samurai" was released 4 years ago and in these past years many things changed (in) ACOH. With "No way out" you will hear a completely new side of ACOH. The album would be best described as a pure Neo(Pop)Folk album with many Neoclassical and some Martial elements. Peter learned to play several acoustic instruments in the last years and some guest musicians also helped to create the band's new style. On "No way out" You hear acoustic piano, guitars, e-bass and contrabass, drums, violin and bells, as well as electronic instruments. most songs are with lyrics and have quite a dreamy and catchy atmosphere with monumental and heroic parts. Some songs even spread a feeling of early 80's independent music like Joy Division, the Fall, New Model Army, etc.

4. Seven hours to execution
5. Six hours to execution
6. Five hours to execution
7. Four hours to execution
8. Three hours to execution
9. Grazia Plena
10. Execution

The Italian duo Medusa’s Spell is back with their second album after the “Mercurial Behaviour” released on Cold Meat in 2006. “Last X hours”is also a conceptual album, this time following the ten last tragic hours of a woman who stands accused for witchery. Ten songs, each representing one hour of her last ten in life, from the moments of the trial, - when her body is completely exhausted from pain - until her mind resigned to her fate of death. The lyrics of the first and the last song is a curse! - the true words spoken by a woman falsely accused of witchery and condemned to death in 1428. The witch of Medusa’s Spell is however a symbolic woman representing all women condemned as witches. By infernal torments and torture her mind and tongue slowly converts to the Devil…and her voice becomes finally the voice of the Devil.
Medusa’s Spell has again created a genuine accoustic ritual dark-folk concept.

7 Maritime Passage (7:16)
8 And The Name He Gave Me (1:50)
9 December (7:42)
10 Shadows In The Light (7:32)

Faux-spiritual drone-folk from Nick Grey enters into a very stark contrast with more serious, moody edges from neo-folk pioneer Tony Wakeford, while moments of intense communion between Kris Force and Grey come off as a relief of earth-crying gloom and experimental processes and methods recalling Philip Glass' most divine moments, meeting old school industrial angst à la Throbbing Gristle with a twist of sublime, early Brian Eno.

Force and Grey craft a general climate of neo-classical acoustic technique and chamber music arrangements, meeting up with Wakeford's ownset of aesthetics and conjuring a heart-warming, post-jazzy, epic fusion of the senses. Various clarinets, live vibraphone, antique old piano, creeping blues-garage guitar, voices in chorus, masterfully haunting strings and vocal solos all rejoice in a whole new genre of extremely humble post-industrial musical theatre, replete with up-to-date electronic processing techniques.

Schloss Tegal - The Soul Extinguished (1991, LP)

American ambient psychogenic sound project duo consisting of Richard Schneider and Mark Burch (who also recorded as Red Skull). Project officialy started in 1989 with the release of their 1st 7"inch single Procession Of The Dead. They have been called the founders of Dark ambient music genre by some critics. Their name came from a hospital in a castle near Berlin, that served as a psychiatric clinic treating soldiers with art and music therapy.The Castle was destroyed and the patients exterminated during WWII.

A1- The Brides Of Loudun
A2- Immunde Spiritus
A3- Cadaver Obedience
A4- Procession Of The Dead
A5- Autopsy The Animal
B1- The Visitation
B2- Adoration Of Teitan
B3- Godvision
B4- Malefacia

Their works are a mixture of graphical information in the form of audio tapes synthesizers and electronic sound and forensic samples that resemble more of a anthropological film or study rather than music per se. The music is extreme and overpowering psychogenic (psychological/hallucination) sound intrinsic mind movie which is ultra-real and sometimes subliminal and many times not for the weak stomach. The sounds range from dark ambient, experimentral to extreme psychogenic power electronics. Schloss Tegal create what they call hyper-real sound or pshychogenic sound.

After a few private and published demo recordings, Brooklyn-based Richard Bosse delivers
his debut album. After an impressive third demo - the first one to be made public - Bosse has now taken things to a whole superior level in terms of emotional rendition through the bleakest form of acoustic funeral folk. All you will find here is melancholy, nostalgia and voluntary isolation from all that is human. Makes you wonder if this was created by someone living on the same planet.
This work of seclusion truly is the fiddler’s tune of our funeral to come.

I Trace the pentagram of Fire and say the incantation that causeth O Great One to manifest before the Gate! Manifest! O Great One, manifest!

And then he will come unto thee and bring His Globes and He will give true answer to all you desire to know. And He shall reveal unto you the secret of His seal by which you may gain favour in the sight of the Old Ones when They once more walk the Earth.

By Xenethono-Rohmatru, I command you O Aziabelis, by Ysehyroroseth, I call the O Antiquelis, and in the Vast and Terrible Name of Damamiach that Crom-yha uttered and the mountains shook I mightily compel ye forth O Barbuelis, attend me ! Aid me ! Give power unto the runes of fire recieveth such virtue that it shall strike fear into the hearts of all spirits that would disobey my commands !

The tracks of this CD were obtained using only original recordings made in the Pozzo del Merro sinkhole in the first, dry part of the hole, and in the wet, bottom part, using special microphones and sensing hardware. The recorded sounds were then treated in studio with some basic processing: pitch shifting, filtering, reverberating, mixing, fading. When possible, arbitrary musical structures were avoided in the final mix.

Hypnoz - Breath Of Earth [2008]

1. Rise (4:40)
2. Wandering River (6:14)
3. Whisper Before Sleep (7:37)
4. Storm (5:21)
5. Secret Wave (4:42)
6. Water (7:11)
7. Earth (5:17)
Hypnoz is a project of Dmitry Zubov, a musician from Moscow suburb town Fryazino, which endowed the lovers of post-industrial music with such names as Hum and Staruha Mha. His first composition was recorded in 1993, and during its existence Hypnoz has released one CD on the Moscow label Insofar Vapour Bulk, which gathered tracks from different periods, a couple of very limited CD-Rs, and participated on the compilation "Iznutri" by the Ewers Tonkunst label with a fragment of a composition from this album. Aside from Hypnoz Dmitry plays in several other projects: Zuboff Sex Shop (post-punk / new-wave), Circle Of Iron Tape (harsh noise), BRZB (electronics, with Alexey Borisov), etc.

The basis of most of the tracks for "Breath of Earth" was recorded by Dmitry together with Evgeny Voronovsky (Cisfinitum) during their joint night psychedelic sessions, and this is evidently felt in their mood. Stylistically this can be called tranquil electronic ambient with a remarkable experimental touch – but who thinks about it while recording? Slowly twisting sound helixes, drawing inside the astral subspaces, pulsating rhythms, cosmic sounds of old analogue synthesizers, – all this produces an appropriate effect on the listener's mind, and there's nothing more to demand from music.

Limited to 500 copies

Transient serenity of the previous album has gone. More Angst, more drums, more thrilling tunes! Go ahead! Beyond horizons! The fourth album of the project LIHOLESIE. More Industrial-Neofolk with barbaric drum patterns but keeping to the previous melodic/lyrical lines this time. Enigmatic, dark, mysterious. Amid debris of a bygone civilization.
