There are long stretches of near silence and super minimal high end drone, slow building crescendos, squalls of distorted choral buzz, warm metallic reverberations, shimmery and dense black dronemusik…” (Aquarius). Beautifully remastered with a 20-minute bonus track, ‘Vloed’ captures the immersive live experience of a Machinefabriek concert. Presented in a stunning matt digipak with modified artwork.

ARCANA – ‘The First Era 1996-2002’ 4 x CD Box (Cyclic Law) – £35 / £38 / £41

Very few bands evoke such awe and inspiration than this Swedish act, driven by the now legendary talent of Peter Bjärgö. Arcana have been at the forefront of the Neoclassical / Heavenly Voices movement with their poignant, ethereal and medieval inspired music since their very first album, “Dark Age Of Reason” was released in 1996 on Cold Meat Industry, on which they subsequently released 3 other albums, “Cantar De Procella” (1997), “The Last Embrace” (2000) and “Inner Pale Sun” (2002). Sorrowful strings, doomsday horns and trumpets, massive percussion, snares, bells and dulcimer all interlaced with exquisite male and female voices create a quite singular atmosphere of grandeur and of melancholy for times long gone. This 4CD box set includes the first 4 albums with bonus tracks taken from various compilations and EPs, covering the early days of this unique act. The first 3 albums have also been carefully remastered by Peter Bjärgö and Frederic Arbour. Ltd x 2000 copies in a rigid card box containing the 4 CDs in separate sleeves along with a 40-pages booklet relating Arcana’s early days.

All Magazines

AUTHOR & PUNISHER – ‘Drone Machines’ CD (HCB Records) – £10 / £11 / £12

By squelching, triggering, amputating, stretching and tormenting sounds achieved from the execution of heavy machinery into vivid instruments, Author & Punisher offers “Drone Machines”. Nonetheless, “Drone Machines” is beyond avantgarde, in that exciting sense that it brings together slow-paced Doom whips, modern technology, an eerie flood of vile drones and heavy machinery in a whole new perspective. It’s also an album that is reviving the Industrial Metal genre from its ashes and rephrasing the primeval passion for that classic bestial drum pound with rancid low end and sonic-metallic scraping. Recommended if you like Godflesh, HALO, Swans, Human Queena Orchestra, Dead World, Grave in the Sky, Khanate, Black Mayonnaise etc.

CYCLOBE – ‘Wounded Galaxies Tap At The Window’ LP (Phantom Code) – £18 / £21 / £24

Essentially a duo comprising Ossian Brown and Stephen Thrower, Cyclobe have created a thrilling and compelling collection of music, which moves effortlessly from realms of cavernous cacophony to moments of blissful delicacy. The first new CYCLOBE music to surface since their ‘death-concrét’ missile ‘Paraparaparallelogrammatica’ (an album made in collaboration with NURSE WITH WOUND), “Wounded Galaxies” showcases major new developments, with contributions from Thighpaulsandra, John Contreras, Cliff Stapleton and Michael J. York. Together, they’ve created an immersive pan-psychedelic dream warren, rich in detail and surprise. “Wounded Galaxies” front cover features a stunning artwork by the renowned American artist Fred Tomaselli. Thrower and Brown are well known for their work in the legendary group COIL, as well as UnicaZürn, The Amal Gamal Ensemble and Current 93. With ‘Wounded Galaxies’, the group has not only produced their finest and most ambitious work to date, they’ve created an album which can stand tall with the year’s most innovative and exciting releases. Ltd x 500 copies on white vinyl.

FALSE MIRROR – ‘Derelict World’ CD (Malignant Records) – £11 / £12 / £13

After three years of intense work, Dark Ambient disciple False Mirror returns with his third full-length journey. With the timeless drones of his debut “Chronostatic Scenes” and the icy soundscapes on his highly acclaimed sophomore masterpiece “North” still resonating through space, solo artist Tobias Hornberger delivers “Derelict World”, his most massive and epic undertaking so far. Dark drones, frostbitten soundscapes and warm vibrating tones from the deep bowels of the earth. From the sheer force of a tornado set loose to the beguiling calm within the eye of the storm, “Derelict World” is a 74 minute long sonic journey into a desolated, depopulated world. In a digipak containing a 20 page booklet with a conceptually linked short story written by author and journalist Bjørn Springorum. The album contains a number of hidden messages that lead to a rewarding “Bonus World” on falsemirror.de. “One of the best dark ambient releases in recent years” (Orkus).

JOHN DUNCAN – ‘The Tailing’ DVD (Von Archives) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50

“Slow writhing in near-total darkness. Intertwining drones from a church organ. Movement and sound heavy, thick as oil. Erotic and forbidden”. “The Tailing” is a hammond organ soundtrack improvised by John Duncan at Diapason, New York. Premiered at Three Days Of Struggle, Vittorio Veneto in February 2010. Produced and directed by John Duncan. Ltd x 500 copies.

LARVA 108 – ‘99.09 – Inside The Stones’ CD (Greytone) – £11 / £12 / £13

“99.09 – Inside The Stones” is a collection of the most significant tracks made by LARVA 108 (aka Guido of Corpoparassita) during their first 10 years. A soundtrack for walking alone through a winter snowstorm or between the trees during a grey day in November. Sounds inspired by nature – a soundtrack for landscapes, moments, or just to escape from the world for a few moments. Experimental, electronica and organic drones create gloomy, psychotic, dark ambient atmospheres. 12 songs over 60 minutes. Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak.

LASIK SURGERY – ‘Cyclo’ CD & DVD (Silentes Minimal Editions) – £11 / £12 / £13

Tense electronic plots, calm ambiental stasis, inserts of sharp and harsh metallic sonorities, distortions, filaments of subliminal melodies, masses of dark and penetrating low frequency drones. The journey of Lasik Surgery starts with a whirlwind of atmospheres and perpetually prismatic sonorities that have a big impact on the listener. This project was born from the minds of Pierpaolo Zoppo (Mauthausen Orchestra), the memorable noise-power electronic author, and Gianluca Favaron, a skilled master controller and sound assembler with a long experience, already active under other aliases (Ab’she, Under the Snow, Metal Music Machine). The first exciting chapter of Lasik Surgery comes with a free DVD that includes two video clips created by Enrico Bressan. Digifile.

LOVAC – ‘Apes Of A Cold God CD (Soleilmoon) – £12.50 / £13.50 / £14.50

Swedish folk / industrialists Lovac is a new band with old roots, having already released a full-length CD of Death in June covers on Douglas P.’s NERUS label under the name Down in June. With a distinctive “totenpop” vision they re-invented the songs to the delight of both Death In June fans and music journalists who discovered the treasure of Douglas P. songs anew. Lovac’s music evokes a night-of-the-world mood that deftly calls down the nostalgia of romanticism and overlays it with a war machine blowing a cold breeze of death into the dawn. Lovac is part of a larger movement of modern European pop music that draws inspiration from traditional folk music and brings it to new life in a fertile clash with the contemporary minimalistic industrial scene. Combining this music with text fragments from Karl Marx, Antonin Artaud and Percy Bysshe Shelley, “Apes of a Cold God” invites the listener to take a deep look into the abysmal underside of civilization. Lavishly printed mini-LP style sleeve with gold foil blocking and an eight page booklet.

MOLJEBKA PVLSE – ‘Zojo’ CD (Greytone) – £11 / £12 / £13

This album was recorded during Mathias Josefson’s studies at the Royal Institute of Art. He was inspired by the longest night of the year in Stockholm, the day when there is almost no daylight. His ambition was to make an acoustic album of minimal drone music without any musical instruments.  Moljebka Pvlse set up long nylon strings across his entire studio, which he then plucked and bowed and recorded with his favorite contact microphones on that very night. These recordings became the basis of the album and set the tone for the rest of the work. Features Japanese artist Michiko Kashiba. Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak.

All Moljebka Pvlse Titles

MERZBOW – ‘Merzbient’ 12 x CD Boxset (Soleilmoon) – £80 / £86 / £92

“Merzbient” is a 12-CD collection of Merzbow’s previously unreleased ambient recordings from the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, at a time when Japanoise prime mover Masami Akita was becoming famous for his live performances, which featured some of the harshest sounds ever heard. But all the while he was secretly recording quieter, more atmospheric music, and using a wide variety of acoustic instruments including an impractical monstrosity he describes as a “big handmade junk instrument made from a metal box with piano wires”, which he played with a violin bow. He made hours of recordings, but kept them private and never released them, until they were eventually set aside and forgotten. He recently rediscovered the multi-track mastertapes in a box and remastered them for release on CD. And what a discovery they are! These 12 discs represent a side of Merzbow never before heard. The music bears many of the signature styles expected from Merzbow – think of the theme of long-form drones pierced by random bursts of sound, for example – but it’s enticingly different from what we’ve heard before, with spacious sounds evoking prehistoric misty landscapes, desolate abandoned industrial sites, and sci-fi/horror film soundtracks. If the familiar and traditional Merzbow is like a jet plane taking off at full-throttle then “Merzbient” is the hanger where the plane was built. Not a violent assault on the ears, but something more interior, more personal, and more gentle. The twelve CDs in this collection are presented in a custom-made hard-cover box with red foil block printing. Each disc is packed in its own slipcase. When the slipcases are arranged togther in a rectangle a large image is revealed. A large and heavy (5 x 11cm, 84 gm) die-cast metal medallion with the Kanji characters representing “Animal Liberation” completes the set, which is limited to 555 numbered copies.

PRURIENT / CARLOS CASAS – ‘Vezdekhod’ DVD (Von Archives) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50

This DVD documents a 48-hour journey with a Vezdekhod into the Siberian tundra. From the field recordings captured by Carlos Casas, Prurient, created and constructed these solid musical masses. An audiovisual experiment on the crossover of documentary and sound exploration. Ltd x 500 copies.

TASADAY – ‘Implosione Tra Le Pieghe Dell’Anima’ CD (Silentes Minimal Editions)
– £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50

The sensational CD release of an outstanding tape (originally published by Multiple Configuration) that includes live tracks recorded between 1983-1984 and comes in a completely remastered edition. Tasaday are a “cult” band active since the early 80s. Born from the merging of Die Form and Nulla Iperreale, they are probably the most eclectic and groundbreaking representative of an Italian experimental scene that blended elements of rock, noise, experimental and industrial music with great courage and originality. An audio document of exceptional value, this long-awaited reprint of live material is also the most direct and remarkable evidence of the work of this unforgettable band.

THE WYRM – ‘The Wyrm’ CD (Gradual Hate Records) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50

The Wyrm (the old English word for a dragon or dragon-like creature) is a musical project born in 2002. This eponymous album deals with themes of forgotten traditional customs, folklore, national identity, witchcraft, paganism, death, birth and universal order. The Wyrm navigates between the Darkfolk, Medieval and Martial genres, with a host of clear-cut musical folk instruments eventually taking centre stage. Ltd edition in a shrinkwrapped card sleeve.

UNICAZÜRN – ‘Temporal Bends’ CD (uZu Music) – £12 / £13 / £14

UnicaZürn are: Stephen Thrower (CYCLOBE, COIL) and David Knight (ARKKON, SHOCK HEADED PETERS). Both are also members of The Amal Gamal Ensemble. Composed from recordings and improvisations made between 2004-2009 by the banks of the Thames and the East Sussex coast, “Temporal Bends” is aquatic, coastal music, connecting an experience of the rivers and seas of England with the micro-waterways of memory and the mind, through decompression and dehydration to full flood and saturation. Knight is renowned for his pulverising fretwork in Shock Headed Peters, and his cavernous guitar treatments in Arkkon; Thrower’s reed playing provided a distinctive ‘free-melancholy’ in Coil and emerges as electro-acoustic texture in Cyclobe. To this duophonic arrangement, UnicaZürn add analogue synthesizer, mellotron and piano, with influences echoing back through early Tangerine Dream to the VCS3 days of Roxy Music. Features special guest vocals by DANIELLE DAX, who also contributed the front cover painting on the digipak. With “Temporal Bends”, UnicaZürn offer a deeply immersive music which hovers at the brink of abstraction, seeking to conjure at that threshold fantastical coastlines and subterranean narratives in the mind’s eye.

VARIOUS ARTISTS – ‘Ekhnatòn – Ricera Italiana Semplice Numero Uno’ CD
(Silentes Minimal Editions) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50

This compilation, originally released in 1984 on LP by Multiple Configuration and A Dull Note, is finally available again in a completely remastered CD version. “Ekhnatòn” collects tracks recorded by the most daring and remarkable bands that were active in the experimental Italian scene during those years. Through a valuable and accurate restoration, Sielnted make available again an unmissable view on the first intuitions and the experimental methodologies that shaped their times, leaving a permanent mark – in Italy and abroad – on the following generations. Two tracks apiece from: Evitaxal, Maze 1066, Tasaday and Tomografia Assiale Computerizzata (T.A.C.).

– £17 / £18.50 / £20

“Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings” is a two-CD collection defined by (mostly) acoustic musical settings of nature’s scenery and impressions, or of personal sentiments mirrored in nature. This profound respect and a deeply romantic magical and mystical perception of nature are the common denominator of all the featured artists and the thematic foundation of their contributions. The fact that nearly all of the songs included here are either exclusive to this project or rare tracks that aren’t otherwise available anymore serves to emphasize the extraordinary character of this release. Over 100 minutes of rare and exclusive tracks from Ainulindalë, Bauda, Dornenreich, Empyrium, Havnatt, Les Discrets (2 tracks), Lönndom, Musk Ox, Nebelung, Nest, Neun Welten, Nhor, Nucleus Torn, October Falls, Orplid, Syven, Tenhi, Ulver and Vàli (2 tracks).

REFORMED FACTION – ‘Until…’ CD (Greytone) – £11 / £12 / £13

“Until…” is a new set of dark ambient recordings built around the ideas of abstract compositional instructions similar in meaning and intent to those used by Karlheinz Stockhausen in such works as “From The Seven Days” and the the nature of auditory vibrations.

Reformed Faction are Robin Storey and Mark Spybey, both ex-members of zoviet*france and both with long established and productive solo careers  as Rapoon and Dead Voices On Air respectively.
