BAD SECTOR Kosmodrom 2xCD/T-SHIRT BOX   30,00 EUR (pre-sale price)



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!

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!


LOSCIL feat. Kelly Wyse Intervalo LP  22,00 EUR

+ download code!

Intervalo is the result of a collaboration between Seattle pianist Kelly Wyse and Vancouver’s loscil. Culminating from two live performances in 2012, first at Seattle’s Substrata Festival and later at Decibel Festival, these recordings were made in Seattle to capture the collaboration. This collection features reworked versions of familiar loscil compositions such as Endless Falls and Hastings Sunrise along side unique versions of rarer compositions such as Rye Fields and City Hospital. Limited 500 copies. Available at Loscil´s tour in Spain.


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.


ELECTRIC SEWER AGE Moon’s Milk In Final Phase LP  26,00 EUR

The absolute last music ever made with Peter Christopherson! Originally the music was to complete the moons milk series of releases. Now the vinyl edition with one additional track. Limited to 500 hand numbered copies. Gatefold cover plus insert. 180 gram vinyl.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 25th, 2013




Vancouver, Canada-based duo Ohm will release their debut self-titled album on Artoffact Records October 1st. The duo comprises Chris Peterson, famous for his work with Delerium, Frontline Assembly, Noise Unit, and Decree, and Craig Joseph Huxtable, notable for Landscape Body Machine.


Peterson teamed up with Huxtable to form Ohm a couple years ago, mostly as a way to fill those late-night jam session urges. Enter 2013, when the project has finally crafted ten tracks for a debut and swiftly signed a record deal with Toronto-based Artoffact Records. The music is gritty and addictive, a kind of dark-disco meets pop-electro, with atmospheric, almost surrealistic vocals. The first single "Car Crash" has already been picked up by the likes of Mindphaser, Release Magazine, and I Die: You Die, and the Vancouver scene is about to put yet another substantial pushpin on the dark-electronic map.


Ohm is also crafting the final touches on a new video that will debut in October. The video is directed by CG artist and director Geoff Mark, whose work has appeared in Babylon 5, Serenity, The Simpsons, Battlestar Galactica, Spider-Man 3 and most recently the international B movie hit Sharknado.


Ohm will be released on CD and digital on October 1st.





"Huxtable and Peterson have a new project called Ohm, and we're jazzed as all hell about it."

Chain D.L.K.: Hello Andreas, back with your latest album “Mechanisms of Faith”, so I’d like to ask at first: how are you and how does it feel to hold the result in your hands?

Object: I’m fine, thank you. It’s of course a fantastic feeling to hold this new and hard worked-out double CD in my hands. I’m very pleased with the album, because the result matches my aspirations.


Chain D.L.K.: “MOF” got released as a 2CD set, which offers asides the normal album a kind of remix collection, the “Old School Conspiracy”. Please explain us a bit the sense for you to collect  remix work from other bands, because I find it striking, that not only tracks of “MOF” got reworked, but also older, previously released tracks.

Object: Actually I wanted to feature more tracks off “MOF” on “Old School Conspiracy”, but unfortunately I’ve lost most of the Midi files. So I was only able to send out the remix kits of three tracks from “MOF” and had to look for older and different alternatives in my archives. It is one of my bad habits to delete all Midi files after completion of a track. But sometimes I forget to delete the files of one or another track… 🙂


Chain D.L.K.: Talking on the main album, you once explained in a different interview, that it mixes the different featured influences of the first three Object-albums. That needs to be explained with more details especially to those listeners who haven’t heard your previous albums…

Object: The longer I have worked on the production of “MOF”, the more it turned into a real old-school release. This wasn’t planned initially, because I usually don’t have the slightest idea how my album will sound in the end. Somehow “MOF” encompasses my whole musical journey in a compressed form. Listeners can discover the fiddly element of “Part-Time Paranoia”, the melodic aspect of “The Reflecting Skin” as well as some harsher sounds of “The Ethane Asylum” on “MOF”.


Chain D.L.K.: In our last interview you explained us, that you haven’t written “thoughtful” lyrics for “The Ethane Asylum”. How is it with “MOF”, any differences regarding this compositional process?

Object: Ha-ha, no, my “lyrics” are still rather text fragments out of my head and how they come to my mind. Mostly I write them down and compile them randomly. There’s no real context, also a concept is not available. Exceptions are of course the lyrics of FIX8:SED8 and LPF 12…


Chain D.L.K.: As mentioned above, “MOF” features two interesting collaborations with Martin Sane (FIX8:SED8) for “Mescaline Crisis” and Sascha Lemon (LPF 12) for “Soul Seeking”. How did you get introduced to both artists? Please explain us a bit about the technical side, which have been necessary to do such collaborations…

Object: I’ve known both of them for quite sometime and I really appreciate their music. So it was rather a natural process to ask both for collaboration. I find it kind of interesting to give the listener the chance to hear a different sounding voice.


Chain D.L.K.: The end-mastering of “MOF” got again provided by Dominique Debert of Brain Leisure. It seems you’ve been quite satisfied with his work, as he has had also your predecessor “The Ethane Asylum” under his magical fingers. So no need to change anything?


Object: Yep, the sound of „MOF“ meets my inner wishes. The mastering is nearly perfect compared to my “awful” production. “The Ethane Asylum“ sounded more raw and noisier because I wanted it that way. „MOF“ on the other hand,  sounds  more transparent than “The Ethane Asylum“ and a tad bit more melodic. And all that has been masterfully executed by Dom.


Chain D.L.K.: Object started it all with the release of demo-tapes many years ago. The formats to release music have obviously changed through the years, but you’ve been always faithful in your style to express yourself. Have you ever seriously thought about to re-release any of your older recordings? In which kind and format would you like to re-release your hidden treasures?

Object: Nader and I have already talked about re-releasing the first two albums on a DCD set filled with bonus stuff and completely re-mastered. But unfortunately we had to cancel the re-releases due to technical difficulties. But whoever has an interest in my first 2 albums and all my demos is now invited to download it here: for free or as pay-what-you-want download.


Chain D.L.K.: There’s another story I remember a while before regarding your track “Dying Planet”. There was a sort of a remix contest in the making with the plan to lay more recognition on one of your best tracks ever, originally released on your “Sink of Iniquity” demo-tape. Whatever happened with these plans?

Object: Wow, that was planned a long time before, but unfortunately it didn’t materialize… 🙂


Chain D.L.K.: In recent news some mindful visitors of a known online forum could already get a pre-listen to a new side-project, which you are currently working on with Dominique Debert. Would you like to share the things around this project with our readers and introduce it to us?

Object: No, there aren’t plans for project with Dom, that is only a rumor and I don’t know how it came up. But I am definitely doing a longer pause under Object, so I have started a new project entitled Borderlands. Under this project I will explore my beloved music styles such as Drone /Ambient / Dub-Techno und Shoegazer. One or another influence of Object will be available and cannot completely vanish, so Object-fans may should check it out too. The 100% music will be completely instrumental and available digitally via Soundcloud or Bandcamp


Chain D.L.K.: It’s not a secret, that you have also a preference for modern IDM/Dark Ambient/Electronica-artists like Access To Arasaka, or projects inspired by the Gridlock-formula. What can a Dark Electro music-producer extract and learn from bands out of this genre? What are your non-plus-ultra favorite releases of this special kind of music?


Object: Yes, I like that stuff, but it doesn’t necessarily inspire me when I work on Object. Same goes for Borderlands. The Gridlock-/Tympanik-styles have no direct impact on my music. As for inspiration I’d rather name artists/projects like Tim Hecker, BVDUB or The Sight Below. I’m fascinated by the sound-scaping Tim Hecker or the monotonous element in the melancholic compositions of BVDUB. My favorite albums of these genres? Well, surely „Harmony in Ultraviolet“ (Tim Hecker), „Serenity“ (BVDUB) or Yagya’s „Rigning“.


Chain D.L.K.: I need to ask you again for some upcoming plans, maybe new releases, additional projects, live gigs, etc., you like to confirm here? I hope we don’t need to wait another 4 years until you’ll be able to return with a new Object-album…

Object: As I said, Object is currently on hold. As far as re-releases goes, “Part-time Paranoia“ and „The Reflecting Skin“ are planned. Maybe one or another goody taken out of the Object-archive will be available as a download. Borderlands has recently started and live performances are as usual not planned. For new and sound examples just click on
Chain D.L.K.: Some final words to our readers to conclude this interview?

Object: Thank you for the interview
