MW036 In Aeternam Vale – Dust Under Brightness LP

Minimal Wave is proud to present a second volume of selections from our French favorites,In Aeternam Vale. Culled from a vast archive of recordings, these tracks were originally self-released on various cassettes by the band’s frontman Laurent Prot between 1985-1988. The sound ranges from early EBM / industrial to gristly coldwave to dark reverby guitar psychedelia. This record illustrates the stylistic range that, through experimentation and fearlessness, Laurent Prot and Pascal Aubert were capable of producing. To quote a review from In Aeternam Vale’s self-titled LP (2009) : “All the caustic, lazy, lowbrow/highbrow genius is there and even though the music is still raw, ramshackle and DIY-sounding, it’s produced and mastered like a MOTHERF***R!”. MW036 is a limited edition pressing of 999 hand-numbered copies, housed in matte heavy weight printed sleeve and black paper innersleeve. Special thanks to Eamon Ore-Giron for providing the cover painting. Purchase here, $22. Sound samples linked below.

Nilaihah Records – nr054 EBM, Industrial, Dark Electro

“’EXPLOSIVE’ is our hardest, fastest, and harshest stuff yet and is going to blow you away!”

Yes, sounds contrite? Well, once you listen to this album, you will be forced to agree. Sonik Foundry is gaining momentum in the electro/industrial genres and has the talent to back those words. They continue to grow and perfect their craft, faster than most. With Nikademus’ strong vocals, catchy lyrics, pounding beats and striking programming, they forge ahead of the rest! If you had to compare, imagine Combichrist, Assemblage 23, God Module, Komor Kommando and a little dub-step thrown in!

Originally from New Jersey, but now based in Maine, Sonik Foundry formed in 2008 after having gained a lifetime of experience in the entertainment arena. With a unique blend of EBM and Industrial sound Sonik Foundry combines clean and distorted vocals with harsh synthesizers and heart penetrating beats. Their live shows literally extend beyond the stage, with an “in your face” energy.

And, if you can imagine, Sonik Foundry’s latest release, aptly entitled ‘EXPLOSIVE’, raises the bar to a whole new level! Forging a uniquely blended EBM-Industrial sound, the songs are catchy w/ harsh synthesizers, in-your-face energy and pounding beats. Jam-packed with 13 original tracks, plus 3 remixes by Assemblage 23, 00tz 00tz, and SINthetik Messiah!

Hi everyone,

A little reminder for our label night at De Nieuwe Anita, Amsterdam on Saturday May 26 2012.



Rooie Waas – coming soon!
We’re stoked to announce the debut release of Nederpop doomers Rooie Waas. Het is maar een constatering will be released on September 1. Meanwhile, you can preview two tracks on the Narrominded Bandcamp page where you can also pre-order the album. But first things first, check out the video of Elke dag.

Reviews of our winter collection: Katadreuffe, Peal and Boutros Bubba
This winter we released three pieces of work by Katadreuffe, Peal and Boutros Bubba. Reviews from all over the world came in. We’d like to share some recent highlights with you.

Still fresh: China by Matto Frank (cd / download)
In February 2009, Matto Frank traveled around China where he recorded sounds with a malfunctioning microphone. What struck him was the huge presence of pop music and other synthetic sounds in public spaces. ‘It seems like in China they enjoy turning up everything as loud as possible, even if it results in . heavy distortion from the speakers. Sales people use microphones to advertise their goods and in combination with the loud music, sometimes huge feedback erupts, but nobody seems to be bothered by that.’ He decided to capture the noise around him ‘as raw and blunt as possible’.

On China he mixes these recordings with his own work, ambient tracks that allow the listener some breathing room in between the hectic Chinese soundscapes. China is a quirky trip through China just after the 2008 Olympics. The fragments reveal something of the new hospitality of the once closed communist country: conversations with curious passersby, exuberant welcome hymns and pop music made by Western standards.


That’s for now!

All the best from us at
