MERZBOW & Z’EV | Spiral Right / Spiral Left CD (CSR133CD) £9 / £10 / £11
Shipping: 8th October
In the planning (and many faxes, emails and discussions in person) for 20 years, finally this stunning collaborative release for Cold Spring from Japanese Noise king Merzbow and legendary elemental sound artist Z’EV is here.

MP3 | MP3


BAND OF PAIN | Sacred Flesh O.S.T. CD (CSR33CD) £8 / £9 / £10
Shipping: 21st September
The soundtrack was written by Steve Pittis’ Band Of Pain, creating a very dark, brooding atmosphere to compliment Nigel Wingrove’s film. Originally with a 16-page booklet depicting explicit scenes from the film, pressure from the distributors forced the artwork into a revised 4-page version. Sacred Flesh is dark journey into realms of mental anguish and repression; a very Black Ambient soundtrack. This is Band Of Pain working in the medium to which its most suited. An incredible album with massive demand from both film and music distributors alike. 10 year anniversary edition of 666 copies!

ALBIREON – ‘Mr. Nightbird Hates Blueberries’ CD (Old Europa Cafe) – £11 / £12 / £13
A dark comedy or a folk drama about drunk birds, mocking spiders, empty bottles and lost souls. For this decadent party, recorded between late 2008 to early 2010 and graced by great emotional neofolk ballads and more experimental gloomy soundscapes, Albireon invited some very selected guests to share this tasty blueberry cake and offer the album a different palette of vocal nuances and a multi-national coven of damned artists’ parade: David E. Williams, Lloyd James (Naevus), Sonne Hagal, Future Whirl (formerly Oberon) and Die Weisse Rose are the selected guests of Mr. Nightbird’s party. These great artists offered a priceless contribution to Albireon’s music and lyrics, and perfectly painted the sad main character, in his struggling pilgrimage toward love, loss, forgiveness and rebirth, but all seen through the drunk eye of the mocking spiders.

All Albireon Titles

ASBAAR – ‘Corona Veli Aurei’ CD (Black Drone) – £11 / £12 / £13
Asbaar is a new dark ambient musical project by Marc Merinee (Eldar). “Asbaar is a meeting with our ancestors who speak to us in our dreams, and teach us how to run our lives, everything that lies between the energies that move the world. To hear is to connect with our collective conscience, irrational consciousness that unites all living things together with all the energy that moves the universe.” (Marc Merinee). 6-panel digipak.
BLACK SUN PRODUCTIONS & VAL DENHAM – ‘Somewhere Between Desire And Despair’
CD (Tourette) – £12 / £13 / £14
A full length Black Sun Productions album featuring the legendary Val Denham. An alchemical journey through the wild boys world. Homosexual overtones inform much of Black Sun Productions material but with Val Denham, a transgendered figure, the focus moves on to a new form of sexuality. It’s clear that Massimo & Pierce haven’t forgotten their past association with Coil, with shuddering rhythmic electronics and dark electronics. Somewhere Between Desire and Despair is much more fun-filled than previous Black Sun Productions. It strikes a balance between electronic music and cabaret music, and a balance between poignancy and absurdity. Features collaborations with Bahntier and Testing Vault. Digipak with artwork by Val Denham.

All Black Sun Productions Titles All Val Denham Titles

BOY DIRT CAR – ‘Familia’ LP (After Music Recordings) – £15 / £18 / £21
All hail the new desolation. Considered one of America’s premier Noise acts, Boy Dirt Car returns with a sermon, or possibly a soundtrack to a beautiful yet disturbed mantra, with a possible insight to breakdown. Darren Brown, Dave Szolwinski, Dan Kubinski, Keith Brammer, Steve Whalen and Jeff Hamilton are joined by guests Rico McCoulm, Mike Sawyer, Josh Mead and Jarrod Olman for this journey into enlightenment or dementia. Found sounds combine with interludes of thrashed out bass, distorto guitar, and manipulations alongside vocal musings, tantrums and almost choral-like insertions within and around. Comes with a bonus vinyl-only track. Ltd x 300 copies with silkscreened jackets by Josh Mead.

All Boy Dirt Car Titles All LP/12″ Vinyl

BRB>VOICECOIL / SPOILS & RELICS – ‘Split’ LP (Harbinger Sound) – £15 / £18 / £21
Extremely limited split between BRB>Voicecoil (Big Road Breaker) and Spoils And Relics. BRB’s piece was constructed from factory production line source recordings and preconceived situation recordings set up and captured in a Victorian warehouse cellar on Newcastle’s quayside which the artists rents. “A filmic piece and an excellent composition from this band which always reminds me of Small Cruel Party… Spoils And Relics’ piece seems to be a collage of sound. Banging on metal outdoors, obscured electronics, voice like mumbling, maybe field recordings… a somewhat more crude construction in the domain of musique concrete. Its all a bit loosely organized, a sort of naive charm around it. Its one of those things that leaves me curiously wondering what else it is that they do”. (Vital Weekly). Ltd x 100 copies in an ink-stamped sleeve.

All BRB Titles All LP/12″ Vinyl

CRISIS – ‘Hymns Of Faith’ 12″ (La Vida Es Un Mus) – £14 / £17 / £20
Re-release for the first time on vinyl, since it’s original release in may 1980 – the one and only 7 track album from seminal radical and political punk / post punk band Crisis. ‘Hymns Of Faith’ was Crisis at their more reserved. The guitar was more innovative than on the punk anthems on their earlier singles, but the lyrics were just as politically bitter. Lyrically the album deals with subjects such as TV, violence, totalitarian Russia and European terrorist organisations. This was their last effort, as it had all begun to fall apart by this time for Crisis, with the band members going in different directions. Douglas P. went on to form Death In June with Tony Wakeford (Sol Invictus), and Luke Rendall went on to form Theatre Of Hate. 30 years since its release ‘Hymns Of Faith’ still sounds vital and honest. Ltd x 700 copies on black vinyl with insert.

All Crisis Titles All LP/12″ Vinyl

FLESH PUPPETS – ‘Medusa’ CD (THIRDSEX) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50
“Of all the recordings Richard Ramirez could have rereleased, I’m glad he and thirdsex decided to resurrect this one. Originally released on Ramirez’ label Deadline Recordings in 1990, Medusa is described as a tribute to underground gay/bi S&M weekly… there may only be 10 original copies in existence… From straight-up in-hale, ex-hale sounds to thick walls of harsh noise, Medusa carries a lot over the span of three tracks. The artwork is excellent – a bit pixelated, but still very arousing, and once again, very complimentary to the subject matter. Head to your unfinished basement, toss on a zipper-mouth mask and give this one a spin” (Holidays). Ltd x 333 copies in a gatefold card cover.
GAË BOLG – ‘Petite Introduction Aux Pratiques Des Gymnosophes’ CD (Le Cluricaun)
– £12 / £13 / £14
47 minutes of new and unreleased material. 4 powerful new tracks, 2 radical versions of Gaë Bolg songs by Trublion 23 and Omne Datum Optimum and 2 crazy and powerful live tracks with the famous Gaë Bolg Live Band (Gaë Bolg, Omne Datum Optimum, Trublion 23, The Hysterical French Band, Karl Blake) and a mysterious ghost track. Petite introduction… is, as the name suggests it, the introduction or precursor to the forthcoming Gaë Bolg album “Petit traité de Gymnosophie” (though none of these tracks will appear there). It deals with happiness, craziness and the human condition. More powerful than ever, with a certain touch of psychiatric dancefloor, Petit traité… marks the return of Gaë Bolg to more immediate songs. Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak.

All Gaë Bolg Titles

GAË BOLG – ‘Petite Traité De Gymnosophie’ CD (Le Cluricaun) – £12 / £13 / £14
The long awaited brand new 2010 Gaë Bolg album is finally released, full of craziness, orchestral deviant songs, cabaret savor and perverted psychiatric dancefloor anthems!!! 11 new direct and ultra-powerful tracks in the way of the first tracks of the previous “Petite introduction aux pratiques des Gymnosophes”, 11 bombastic, orchestral, neofolk and mad hymns dealing again with happiness, craziness and human condition. Features Omne Datum Optimum as a guest on 1 track. Digipak.

All Gaë Bolg Titles
GATE TO VOID – ‘Black Empty Void I’ CD (Section XIII COMA) – £11 / £12 / £13
The first rite performed during three nocturnes 29 May – 1 June ov 2009. A passage towards the realms of Darkness and Death, through the soundless echoes of Insanity, crushing the shell which binds the fragile human anatomy to Life. III rites that invoke endless pain and suffering, to drown the consciousness of this illusory existence, into the depths of nothingness. Black Ambient / Deathscapes. Ltd x 200 hand-numbered copies in a slimline DVD case with insert.

GNOMONCLAST – ‘Tempus Null’ CD (Old Europa Cafe) – £11 / £12 / £13
Great debut release by this US project. Previously consigned to the liner notes of diverse Luftwaffe releases, Gnomonclast has recorded a virulent 60 minute Neofolk / Martial / Experimental exposition on the subject of time’s censure. “Tempus Null” is the result of a collaborative effort waged by Luftwaffe and Valence. This debut album consists of 20 tracks, which includes a cover of Death In June’s ‘Rose Clouds of Holocaust’ and also features collaborations with ARt ABSCONs and State Research Bureau. “Time that ends will not begin again”.

All Gnomonclast Titles

HLADNA & VRESNIT – ‘Inej Senju Kornej’ CD (Vetvei) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50
The first collaboration between Nikolay Kalmykov (Hladna) and Sergey Ilchuk (Vresnit) in a remote Jarogora village in January 2010. “Winter woods of Vepsky Park… disturbing pulsations of the earth and majestic meditative canvas. Handbells summon the frozen spirits, the snow crunching underfoot broken off by sharp technogenic crunches, twilight fades, the frost grows stronger and then all calms down. At dawn a fairytale maids sing solar lullabies, and boundless birds spin heavenly open spaces. Space drone equipment, flutes, jew’s harp, field tape recordings – nature and technology have merged here in three dense Drone Noise Ambient shamanic rituals where Vresnit’s chtonic naturalism and weird psychedelia hide a lump of severe urban existentialism which is indispensable for Hladna’s works”. Ltd x 383 copies in a 6-panel outsize sleeve.

All Hladna TitlesAll Vresnit Titles

LUFTWAFFE – ‘Ere I Perish’ CD (Old Europa Cafe) – £11 / £12 / £13

All Luftwaffe Titles

MERZBOW – ‘Marmo’ CD (Old Europa Cafe) – £11 / £12 / £13
“Marmo” (Marble for Italian) is devoted to Italian and particularly Venetian marble. Masami Akita visited and played in this magic Italian city several times and was impressed by all the marbles used in the Venetian buildings and paintings. The 3 tracks composing this album are entitled “Merzbotanica-parallela” – an ode to “Botanica parallela”, the book written by the Italian author Leo Lionni who is also the inventor of such botanic science, a parallel hyper-real botanic where imagination is more reliable than reality. A real psychadelic tribute by the Japanese master of noise to Venice and Italy. Enter this new “Merzcolored-Merzbotanic-Merzpsychomuzak” full of scratching rhythms and psychoactive noises and let your brain explode. Presented in a special folding cover with Venetian marbled paper effect and golden lettering.

All Merzbow Titles

MILITIA – ‘Archive Collection 1: 1996-1997’ CD (Neuropa) – £12 / £13 / £14
The first chapter of Militia’s Archive Collection takes us back to their 1996-1997 recordings. The tracks are taken from the “War Against Society” compilation, the “Pain/Familiedrama” tracks featuring Con-Dom and Laura Maes and the “Kingdom Of Our Lord” MCD. All 10 tracks were previously released by the now defunct German cult-label Praxis Dr. Bearmann. A nice appetizer for Militia’s upcoming album “Power, Propaganda, Production!”. An essential piece of industrial nostalgia! Ltd x 500 copies in a 6-panel digisleeve.
MYSTIFIED – ‘Passing Through The Outer Gates’ CD (First Fallen Star) – £11 / £12.50 / £14
Through the end of all things is a new beginning found! The Eulogy Series challenges musicians to create the soundtrack to nothing less than their own death, transition and afterlife, as they see it in their own mind and in accordance with their personal beliefs. Thomas Park (Mystified) has created an album that’s worlds apart from his previous releases in both maturity and complexity, and in doing so has opened a new chapter in his own history as a musician. As his body dies and his soul embarks on a timeless journey through an increasingly strange series of gates toward a place of final rest, we find that Thomas` aural vision is crafted with not only spiritual transcendence of this physical world, but also with transcendence of the narrow genres typically used to classify musicians. Ambient and dark ambient soundscapes alike are deftly populated by neo-classical elements, occasionally with an experimental twist! Ltd x 500 copies in a beautifully presented in an A5 digipak with silver foil-embossed lettering and a specially die-cut cover whose coffin-shaped hole reveals only a hint of the true album cover artwork underneath! Mastered by Frederic Arbour (Cyclic Law).

All Of The Wand And The Moon Titles All LP/12″ Vinyl

ORCHESTRA NOIR – ‘What If…’ CD (Neuropa) – £12 / £13 / £14
This is the first full-length album from Tony Wakeford’s new-look Orchestra Noir since its resurrection as a London based project. With a move away from the martial towards musicians and compositions more based on chamber, and early music. In 2006 a collaboration started with Current 93 collaborator Richard Moult and acclaimed oboist Mark Baigent based initially on the words and music of Tony Wakeford (Sol Invictus) but which soon flourished as a collaboration between the three and later with the acclaimed early-music violinists and viola players, Ben Sansom and Alexandria Lawrence. With the addition of Sol Invictus percussionist M and flutist Guy Harries, a synthesis of experimental and traditional took place with unhealthy dollops of Edwardian dark whimsy, humour and satire. Aided by the folky voice of Autumn Grieve and the Jazz improvisation of Jessica Constable, an intriguing new direction had begun. 6-panel digipak with sticker.

All Orchestra Noir Titles

SECRET DRUID SOCIETY – ‘Restless’ CD (First Fallen Star) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50
Long after we are all dead and gone, the planet will continue to go about its business. For aeons before humans existed and for aeons after we are extinct, Earth will cycle onward through seemingly endless ages, barely aware that we existed at all. Devoid of any form of life as we narrowly define it, the allegedly inanimate forces and physical features of this planet possess a life all their own! Rivers, oceans, volcanoes, the wind, the rain, the drifting snow, the erosion of rock, the eruption of mountain ranges – all representative of the activity, the vitality, the life possessed by the planet! The duo that form Secret Druid Society carefully carved, moulded and eroded drones and minimal dark ambient soundscapes, finally recording what had evolved from the process, in order to tell a story not of human misery, not of an apocalypse, but of what Earth has always done and will continue to do for periods of time wholly unfathomable by the human mind. Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak.
SECT – ‘Babylon Rising’ CD (Midnight Productions) – £11 / £12 / £13

WOLFSKIN feat. LAST INDUSTRIAL ESTATE – ‘Stonegates Of Silence’ CD
(Malignant Records) – £11 / £12/ £13
And so the journey formally ends for Wolfskin, 15 years from whence it began with the release of “The Hidden Fortress” cassette back in 1995. The essence of Wolfskin has transformed and mutated throughout the years, reaching on “The Stonegates of Silence” it’s simpler form… one of desolation, solitude, insanity and death, the final frontiers of human existence. As he did with “The Hidden Fortress: A Revisitation” CD, Wolfskin once again pairs up with Anders Peterson of Objekt4 fame, now operating under the name of Last Industrial Estate for the purposes of this recording. This is Wolfskin at its bleakest and most restrained, offering 5 tracks of enveloping ambience built around foggy, ambiguous textures and an endless flow of drifting isolationism, shapeless horrors, and oppressive subterranean heaviness. In the case of Stonegates, Wolfskin goes out not with a bang, but with a slow, evolutionary creep into the shadows, forever etched in the lexicon of dark ambient music. Digipak.

All Wolfskin Titles
