14 First Time (4:52)
15 Forgettable Name (3:43)
16 Question (4:20)
17 72 BPM (3:53)
A year after their debut, Tearwave returns with this monumental 17 song, 77 minute CD. Overflowing with passion and motion, Jennifer's soaring vocals float over guitar glaciers, letting her words flow from a very authentic place, tapping into the darkest sides of her self.

Different Shade of Beauty's huge washes of shoegazer / indie-rock / dream-pop is driven by Doug's sweeping, gauzy guitars creating a dense musical interplay with Joe's surging bass-lines and John's insistent drum rhythms. And yet, even with the beautiful layers of musical melody, it's the ghostly ethereal soprano and dark lyrics which beckons through the tracks, like a woman lost in a wintry, foggy forest.

The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath A Cloud - Yndalongg [1996, Vinyl, 10"]

A1 - Untitled
A2 - Untitled
B - Untitled

Yndalongg (ART 4) containing three previously unreleased tracks, all recorded at Little Saxam Church, Suffolk
The A side is more typical of the duo's normal style,
first track concerns the heinous 'Children's Crusade' of 1212 in which corrupt merchants traded on Christian zeal to transport thousands of children from Marseilles to Alexandria where they were sold into slavery. The song has a strong melody line, clever counterpoising of Elisabeth's two vocal tracks. The second track appears to be a thematic sequel.
The B side has a laid-back, ambient-industrial instrumental which is very like some Nurse With Wound.

Yndalongg is a 10" and comes in a grey sleeve with a grey poster featuring the group's logo. Limited edition to 555 copies.

The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath A Cloud - A Night In Fear [1996, E.P.]

1- Untitled
2- Untitled
3- Untitled

A Night In Fear (1996 ART 8) is a joint production of the Moon lay hidden and their good friend, Lina of Deutsch Nepal. This is not a split CD but a close collaboration between the two parties, creating a neo-folk/ritual-industrial hybrid which is more than the sum of its parts. The 3-track, 30-minute CD is powerful and exciting. The CD cover appears to feature some jolly huntsmen, but in usual minimalist Moon style other details are marked by their absence.

Released in a jewel case with textured paper.


The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath A Cloud - Kostnice [1996, Vinyl 7"]

1- Untitled
2- Untitled

Issued in a limited edition of 222 numbered copies. Packaged in a paper similar to parchment-style and sealed with wax seals.

APOPTOSE - Nordland [2000]

1- Unter Bewusstsein
2- Abschied von der Sonne
3- Nordlicht
4- Nidstång
5- Horizont
6- Sturmnacht
7- Erntewôd

This is the first release from this EXCELLENT German one-man project who makes instrumental, mostly electronic music, with great depth and variety. And of course, is one of my Favourite Artists.

"With elements of dark ambience and martial neo-classical, Apoptose infuse inspiration from both into their own sound, subsequently creating a great album in the process. To describe further, there are no tracks that could really be considered neo-classical in their own right, yet it is the use of ritual/martial percussion and solemn classical tunes that give this in part a similar aura. Crowd noise, mid-paced pounding martial beats and solemn keyboard layers are found on the opener, ‘Uter Bewusstsein’, while the sorrowful yet rousing atmospheres of ‘Abschied Von Der Sonne’ are accentuated by selected outbursts of sharp drum rolls (that become more prominent mid way through to take the main focus). The sampled female choir vocals of ‘Nidstang’ give a broad comparison to Raison d’être (at his most composed), with the backing music containing shifting bass soaked noise and classically inspired keyboard layers. The classical type movement continues into ‘Horizont’ with a deep cello being the most discernable element of the melody. Mid-way in, heavy martial drumming pounds into contention creating a much more aggressive aura over the unchanging musical backing. The drawn out concluding track ‘Erntewod’ is content with slowly forging forward with a repeating tune and fluctuating backing consolidating the pieces focus. The only thing left to mention is the fold out digipack that complements the music perfectly - a great merging of visuals and sound. This release is definitely recommended."
Review from "Spectrum magazine"

"Nordland" was released May 2000 in an edition of 1000 embossed 6-panel digipaks. In 2001 there was a second edition of 1000 copies with little colour-changes on the digipak and the CD labelprint.

p.s. thanks to the "discogs", becouse i dont had the work to shot the photos of my digipak :)
I will not post the others albuns of Apopotose, becouse they are more easy to find on net.

5- Queen Ov Flames
6- Draco Rex
8- Cloud
9- Claw And Flame
10- Princess
11- Lady Ov Water
12- Lure
13- Throne
Draco Rex is the 10th anniversary of Conscientia Peccati. The project started in 1994 with the release of the "Theogonia" Tape at Art Konkret. The topic of this release is the dragon, the best-known mystical beasts and also offers vast variations in form and interpretation. While in Christian culture it is seen as a destructive servant of Satan, in China it can be a lucky charm bringing fertility and prosperity.The tracks of this work try to represent these different aspects. Some show the playful nature of the dragons, which are often said to be lovers of beautiful music. Others address the destructive nature of the dragons or the battles against them. There are songs about dragon worship, stories about the deeds of dragons and about their role in society. Poes "Conqueror Worm" also appears in one track, still bloodthirsty.
To reflect all these aspects, the album consists of musical styles ranging from Marches via Dark Ambient to simple instrumental melodies. "Conqueror Worm", due to its folkloristic topic, may be the Conscientia Peccati release with the strongest middle-age influences to date.

Limited edition to 333 handnumbered copies, mine is the 154 :)

GALERIE SCHALLSCHUTZ - Montauk project [2005]

1- Let's Talk Montauk
2- Phoenix II
3- Camp Hero
4- S.A.G.E.
5- The Human Factor
6- Neural Tunnelling
7- Montauk Chair
8- Facing Reality
9- Phoenix III
10- 6037
11- Delta-T-Antenna
12- Tran(c)eformation Of America
13- Now Is The Time...
14- ...To Think About!

This is the Third release of G.S. and of course is another one EXCELLENT work. Montauk Project (also named the Phoenix Project, depending on the time period) was in the 70's and early 80's a covert governmental ultra-top-secret electromagnetic mind control and time experiment project that took place at an abandoned Air Force radar base at the southeast tip of Long Island (New York) ...a base that should still be in use nowadays for ultra-secret research and experimentation into interdimensional technology, weather control, electronic and drug-based mind control...(just to name a few of these mad projects that are the work of secret societies).

The overall musical assemblage is mostly based upon dense layers of sound, pulsed and repetitive frequencies, drawn out ambient textures, multiple noises, deformed voices/cries... with some atmospheric passages...but expect to physically and mentally feel the special atmosphere of this record, especially on 'Montauk Chair' which is a real listening experience that will leave no listener insensible...
(some words taken from the defunct Heimdllar Webzine)

The regular cd edition comes in a dvd case featuring a 19x14 cm foldout digipak with a holographic picture on the frontcover. The special limited handmade edition (only 83 numbered copies), it comes in a stunning 22x22 cm S.A.G.E. radar station made of wood and metal.Included too an 11x9 cm holographic card.

p.s. - You can find all the discography of G.S. on the blog :)
