NEW COLD SPRING RELEASES

 

COIL / NINE INCH NAILS

 
COIL / NINE INCH NAILS – ‘Recoiled’ Picture Disc LP (Cold Spring CSR193P)

 

Final special edition of this extraordinary release. Full colour picture disc in a heavy PVC sleeve. Ltd x 1000 copies only.

 

“Recoiled” is a rambunctious alchemy, of magikal Coil sensibilities and hi-tech home circa 90’s mixing technique, all fused in the cave-like early studios of Danny Hyde / Peter Christopherson. These were the unrestrained PRE- BIG studio- mix downs, of four songs which long time Coil admirer / collaborator Trent Reznor requested Coil to remix. Reznor sent over the original multi-tracks and DATs to Hyde / Christopherson, who independently mixed versions and then met to synch both creations, molding them into these master versions. “Recoiled” includes a fuller, more opulent version of the track ‘Closer’, which eventually made it onto the opening credits to the movie “SE7EN“. These 5 lengthy compositions are pre-Ableton / laptop generation type priest song creations, with the use of baby alarms and numerous wires to create bespoke effects. These legendary tracks were always rumoured to exist and, only the due diligence of a dedicated NIN forum who hunted them down, are released/unleashed for your listening pleasure. 4 of the tracks were released on the download-only “Uncoiled”. A bonus, previously unheard track from the same sessions closes the album. Jhonn Balance is also manifest on this gilded constellation.

 

Release Date : 30th May

 

 

 

 

BURIAL HEX 

 
BURIAL HEX – ‘In Psychic Defense’ CD (Cold Spring CSR197CD)

 

Burial Hex is a composition cycle of Post-Industrial music, dubbed “Horror Electronics”, by Clay Ruby. With a progressive mix of influences as far-reaching as vintage Industrial and Power Electronics, Kosmische Music, Black Metal, Techno and Electro, Early Music and Contemporary Classical, these dynamic compositions are simply unclassifiable. This compilation continues the stunning trajectory of the previous Cold Spring reissue collection, “Book of Delusions”, falling even further into the spiraling abyss of ritual music made in preparation for the Final Mysteries in the twilight of this Kali Yuga. Collecting tracks from various out-of-print vinyl releases, including In Psychic Defense, The Tower, Fantasie und Fuge, Hunger, and the highly sought-after “A Kiss To Birth The Rotted Sun” from the WVNDRKMMER 5xCS compilation, this volume is a welcome addition to every Burial Hex collection, as well as an ideal introduction for the Horror Electronics neophyte.

 

Release Date : 7th April

 

  

 

SHIFT

 
SHIFT – ‘Altamont Rising’ CD (Cold Spring CSR195CD)

 

Ferocious and misanthropic new full-length from Sweden’s son Shift. “Altamont Rising” is a calibration of the cosmic equilibrium in 7 chapters presented by Shift. The album deals with the consequences of man defying nature with Altamont as an example of what happens when pushed far enough. Three works /events stand as inspiration for the album: Apocalypse Now, Valhalla Rising and Altamont Free Festival. “Altamont Rising” is a brutal amalgamation of malicious vocals, drenched in heavy, claustrophobic death industrial and harsh noise.

 

For fans of Grunt, Brighter Death Now, Anenzephalia, Sick Seed.

 

Shift has previously released on Freak Animal, Hospital Productions, At War With False Noise, Silken Tofu, Unrest Productions and more.

 

Release Date: 7th April
