BAD SECTOR Kosmodrom 2xCD BOX 17,00 EUR (regular edition)

Originally released in 2005 as a limited CD and CD/MCD edition which has long since sold out. Now available again – remastered and expanded! The 2xCD box includes the original album and the MCD with five extra tracks, which turns the second disc into an additional full length release. Includes 12-page booklet.

 

In BAD SECTOR’s 20 years of existence Massimo Magrini has developed a sound aesthetic of harmonious sonic drones that marked its beginning with the first album AMPOS in 1995. Many releases and a decade later the ground breaking work KOSMODROM was published and sold out within a few months. Dedicated to Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the Russian pioneer of astronautic theory, the key element in BAD SECTOR´s music (bringing together science and sound) was brought into the foreground with this release. Original Soviet sound devices like the Aelita synthesizer and the electro-optical ANS (which Coil also worked with) were mixed with heavily processed sources from space missions, adding an unearthly human dialogue to the electronics. The sounds on KOSMODROM are deep and droning, pulsating and constantly flowing with processed rhythmic sequences, supported by a bed of radio signal recordings. A timeless masterpiece of deep ambient electronica!

NEW ARRIVALS:

 

ARKTAU AON Ikuisuus näkyy luiden läpi CD   13,00 EUR

Thought lost and subsequently forgotten, a complete album by AIH & AIL of ARKTAU EOS and JKV of ZOÄT-AON was recently rediscovered. This unknown chapter in the evolution of the classic Finnish ritual sound originates from sessions held in May 2005, when Arktau Eos was still unnamed, beginning work on their seminal opus ‘Mirrorion’ and Zoät-Aon had just released the equally influential ‘Star Autopsy’ CD.

The album retains the original title of the sessions: ‘Ikuisuus näkyy luiden läpi’, Finnish for ‘Eternity Shines Through the Bones’, and for purposes of this release the group is named simply ARKTAU AON. ‘Ikuisuus näkyy luiden läpi’ is enthusiastic, youthfully vigorous and decidedly ominous ritual music with a total running time of 31:53. Instead of songs, it is divided into different ‘movements’ or phases: it resembles a field recording of some obscure ceremony from a far-off corner of the world. Boasting a raw but good, clear sound, ‘INLL’ remains unaltered save for the mastering done in 2013 at Katajan Kaiku studio.

Limited edition of 289 CDs including two hand-finished photo prints (selected randomly from a set of 32 prints), an insert and silk-screen printed cardboard covers.

 

 

LUSTMORD Metavoid CD   13,00 EUR

cd gatefold sleeve – heavy black cardboard with anthracite print plus silver foil embossing. layout by salt legendary sound artist lustmord (brian williams) creates the sound that gave birth too and epitomizes the genre known as dark ambient. williams began working under that name in 1980, and since then his dark sound sculptures have been highly influential not only in music genres such as ambient and industrial, but also in film and games. lustmord’s sound investigations are exquisitely crafted manifestations of horror that balance sublime sound references with the body’s natural queasiness about ultra-low frequencies. lustmord has previously extracted the eeriness from field recordings made in crypts, caves, and slaughterhouses, and combined it with sonic incantations and the haunting wail of tibetan horns. his seamless treatments of acoustic phenomena encased in digitally expanded bass rumbles have the quality of nightmares from the the blackest abyss. ant-zen is proud to announce the re-release of lustmord’s critically acclaimed and ground-breaking album metavoid which was originally released on may 21st 2001. metavoid presents the logical development of the unmistakable lustmord sound and pushes further into uncharted depths. dark ambient currents and growls, padded with strings and angelic voices, are interrupted by effected voices, tribal/industrial percussion and sound effects. there are definite instances of pure melody and orchestral sounding strings and arrangements juxtaposed perfectly with the breaks of choir samples and stark, cold, metallic noise. a most accessible work that could easily have been a film score – a soundtrack for the apocalypse.

 

LUSTMORD Zoetrope CD  13,00 EUR

cd gatefold sleeve – heavy black cardboard with anthracite print plus silver foil embossing. layout by salt legendary sound artist lustmord (brian williams) creates the sound that gave birth too and epitomizes the genre known as dark ambient. williams began working under that name in 1980, and since then his dark sound sculptures have been highly influential not only in music genres such as ambient and industrial, but also in film and games. lustmord’s sound investigations are exquisitely crafted manifestations of horror that balance sublime sound references with the body’s natural queasiness about ultra-low frequencies. lustmord has previously extracted the eeriness from field recordings made in crypts, caves, and slaughterhouses, and combined it with sonic incantations and the haunting wail of tibetan horns. his seamless treatments of acoustic phenomena encased in digitally expanded bass rumbles have the quality of nightmares from the the blackest abyss. inspired by the franz kafka short story ‘in the penal colony,’ zoetrope presents the haunting visions of a man imprisoned within the inner depths of his own mind. he tries to escape his torturer’s talon grips, only to discover the truth about himself and the world of oppression which has driven him to this inescapable fate. consisting of both the music and extensive sound design of the movie, melded and mutated to recapture the atmospheric nightmare of the world that is zoetrope, where walls breath and dreams become nightmares. originally conceived as a two month music and sound design project, it quickly evolved into a three year journey into madness, as zoetrope the movie became a complex exercise in pure cinema and sound. in this score, brian williams maintains the focus on aleatoric sound manipulations made of echoing effects, tormented voices, industrial artifacts and slightly neglect the specific rumbling and layered electronic textures that were heavily substantial in his previous efforts.

 

CONTROL Transgression CD  13,00 EUR

‘transgression’ represents control’s second appearance on ant-zen after the highly regarded ‘the resistance’ release in 2012. on this album thomas garrison remains loyal to his significant, unique approach of power electronics and death industrial, ready and willing to penetrate the open listener’s mind and body. the eight album tracks convey drastic, mesmeric atmospheres carried by the perfect balance between harsh sonic outbursts and accentuated subbass pulses. sharp noise layers are accompanied by seething dark ambiance, subliminal rhythms and the distinctive, arcane vocals control is well-known for. while listening to ‘transgression’ you will find yourself captured inside an inescapable web of varied moods and feelings which can only be intensified by the experience of a control live performance. do not miss!

PHELIOS Gates Of Atlantis CD  12,00 EUR

The first new recording from Phelios since 2010’s highly acclaimed Astral Unity, finds Martin Stürtzer in fine form, creating yet another masterwork of meticulously crafted, richly detailed cosmic doom. Very few acts, if any, are more adept at composing such epically scaled atmospheres and Gates of Atlantis once again sets the bar impossibly high, offering up a multi-colored tapestry of sweeping sounds, full of majestic, nebulous drones and ominous strings, propelled forth by rising waves of tribal percussion and more earthen, textural darkness. The scope and breadth of the 7 tracks here truly transcends dark ambience, and the sheer weight and complexity of sound is nothing short of awe inspiring. A triumphant return from one of the genre’s great practitioners. In 6 panel eco-wallet with artwork by Pär Boström (Kammarheit) and mastered by Secret Lab.
