FOLLOWING ALBUMS ARE FORSEEN TO BE OUT DURING FEBRUARY / MARCH 2011
OECD 136 ROSA RUBEA – The Fire and the Rose CD Digipack PTBA
RosaRubea is born by the collaboration between Daniela Bedeski (already known as the lead soprano voice of Camerata Mediolanense)
and Pino Carafa, alias SynthEthic and Pavor Nocturnus, who previously also collaborated with Camerata Mediolanense.
Daniela and Pino have been long since active on the underground music scene of Milan, that they have widely experienced.
Together with them, works the talented cellist Zeno Gabaglio (Frankie Hi NRG, Les Jumeaux Discordants, Paolo Saporiti) and the pianist Marco Bosio.
“Rosa Rubea” is the alchemical Rubedo, the ultimate phase of the “Opus Magnum” or “Opus Chemicum”, announcing the transmutation of vile metal into Gold.
RosaRubea is Expression, Vision and Manifestation.
“The Fire and the Rose”, RosaRubea’s debut EP, celebrates Life-Death-Rebirth through the four elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water.
It will feature five oniric, evocative songs based on lyrics by Daniela Bedeski and by the great American/English poet T.S. Eliot
and the French poet Christine de Pisan plus an ancient Scottish ballad.
Two recited poems by D. Bedeski will open and close the EP.
Vision meets Music and Poetry in the process of Creation.
Illustrations by the painter Massimo Bertocchi.
Photos and artwork by Aimaproject, aided by Massimo Bertocchi.

OECD 140 XX CENTURY ZORRO – La Volpe du XX Siecle CD Digifile + large booklet PTBA
Cult project of the Italian 80’s underground !
This is the first re-edition of this masterpiece into digital format.
Like Frank Sinatra dancing a tango with Nico …!?
Broken melodies full of nostalgia, dandy and gigolo fascination, B/W sounds, pre and after world war songs,
music for an other era which will probably never come …
The weltanschauung of XXCZ is simply formidable and incomparable to anybody and anything, a unique experience out of time.
The disc was completely released with a special system called “MonSter” which was never re-used after this production by anybody else:
you can choose to listen to both stereo channels contemporarily (as you usually do with any other standard album)
or to listen to one channel per time as different tracks was recorded on both stereo channels.
This system gives you infinite listening solutions just turning the stereo button more to the left or to the right channel …
The very special feeling in this album is his very oblique sensibility.
An album to be listened in the morning, as soon as you wake up, when your balance is more delicate.
[Frater Rudolf (Rudy) was one of the band members …]
NB : The album will come in a series of different covers and CD label prints.

OECD 142 DIVISION S – Something to Drink 5 CD Folder PTBA
Here comes DIVISION S second CD, The fifth chapter in the “Something to Drink” saga.
A new small treasure of minimal Noir-Cabaret with Mediterranean sounds,
with Rock’n’Western saloon melodies, with vintage fashioned hits dealing with “60’s like” sounds.
Songs to be listened while drinking a good Italian red wine and smoking an unfiltered cigarette.
Songs for nostalgic rainy days and for summer sunset light.
Songs for lovers and suffering broken hearts.
Songs for drunken and dandy urban cow-boys & cow-girls.
“Something to Drink 5” continues where the last album ended, from the last drink, from the last glass of whine…

Lie down on the soft summer grass, deep in the woods just before twilight, and perhaps you will be lucky enough to encounter some good-natured tiny beings of pleasing appearance.
Under their spell you may want to fall asleep, but you may also want to… dance!
Being one of the very few representatives of what might be labelled as feminine ambient music, Artefactum remains the embodiment of unique characteristics:
in the case of Artefactum you simply can’t mistake the music for any other artist’s work.
Merissa d’Erlette’s new opus “Foxgloves & Bluebells” has at last taken its final shape after five long years since the release of “Rosarium Hermeticum” – her last full-length album.
the release contains at the same time a collection of beautiful songs inspired by old poetry and mysterious folklore.
With wonderful guest appearances from neo-medieval THE SOIL BLEEDS BLACK, British folk singer ANDREW KING (Duo Noir / Sol Invictus)
and neo-classical DAWN & DUSK ENTWINED, “Foxgloves & Bluebells” is a must-have release for anyone into esoteric post-industrial music.
Released in collaboration by by Old Europa Cafe and Ur Muzik as a 6 pannel digipack.

Folkstorm returns to follow up the successful 2009 album “Ortodox” with another crushing assault on your senses.
This time Nordvargr pushes the sound even further and adds a more classic songstructure and vocals to the album – hence the title.
While still maintaining a harsh old-school industrial vibe, these recordings takes Folkstorm to a whole new level.
Welcome to explore the wrath of a man gone seriously pissed off with everyone and everything.
Don’t loose the chance to taste the new Folkstorm Combat Folk-Pop(?)!
