After a few months of delay, SIGILLUM S are now able to focus of the release of their new record, “GLAMOUR & DECADENCE ACROSS GALAXIES” , a 12″ picture disc LP + download, which should be out in a couple of months: details on pre-order through BANDCAMP will be announced ASAP.
Meanwhile, recording has been further progressing on the new SIGILLUM S & TONY WAKEFORD collaboration “STONES DEBRIS AND SOME CULTURAL FLU”, together with another brand new SIGILLUM S production, “OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA AND OTHER DEADLY MEDICAL CONDITIONS”, scheduled to be issued as vinyl 10″.
The already mentioned “other” collaborative effort has been moving along too: more details will be communicated shortly, together with plans for publication of unreleased older material (such as “EPIDEMIOLOGY” on vinyl, etc.) and live shows.
Meanwhile, regarding SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS , URASHIMA has just re-issued on vinyl LP “KRIONIKA SOSHIKI”, originally released by Slaughter on cassette.
Another truly major URASHIMA re-issue project is on-going, that is the release on vinyl of the seminal “LISTEN AND DIE!” 6 tapes box set published by SLAUGHTER PROD. in 1997: this Italian-American Power Electronics behemoth will see again the light of the day in the shape of two 3xLP box sets, one with the Italian acts (SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS, IUGULA-THOR, MURDER CORPORATION, ATRAX MORGUE, DISCORDANCE, DIKTAT) and one with the U.S. ones (SURGICAL STAINLESS STEEL, SLOGUN, TAINT, SKIN CRIME, DEATHPILE, BACILLUS)…. everything re-mastered for wax by P.NG5361.B.
BLOODLUST!, then, after having released the NEIL JENSON & SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS collaboration “A BRUTAL CASE OF GLACIAL BLASPHEMY” on CD and the CD version of THE FORTIETH DAY + SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS + TERENCE HANNUM “ADVENT”, is working on the production of the “BIO-CONCRETE IMPLOSION ON THE EAST SIDE” CD, an archival release of the first ever SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS performance, recorded live at Pyramid in NYC on June 2, 1996.
On a longer timeframe, INFLUENCING MACHINE RECORDS, as anticipated, is also planning a vinyl LP re-issue of SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS’ s “KUSA’I”, originally released by GROSS on cassette.
Recordings for a brand new IUGULA-THOR full length album have then been still progressing and plans for releases are being refined with BLOODLUST!.
In a few months URASHIMA will also reissue on vinyl LP the IUGULA-THOR / SSHE RETINA STIMULANTS “WRIST” split, originally released on CD by Ant Zen.
Regarding ERALDO BERNOCCHI and his projects, then,…. the long awaited SIMM album is finally on its way: originally due to come out on VITAL RECORDS the album is now coming out for OHM RESISTANCE.
Coming in 2014 on VITAL RECORDS is also “NOTHING” a dark ambient album recorded by Eraldo, together with HENRIK NORDVARGR BJRKK.
In the next few months Eraldo will be producing for RARENOISE RECORDS an amazing doom jazz trio too… FREE NELSON MANDOOMJAZZ… featuring Rebecca Sneddon on Sax, Colin Steward on Electric Bass and Paul Archibald on drums.
From November 6th to 13th Eraldo will be in Budapest working on METALLIC TASTE OF BLOOD second album, while February 2014 will finally see a new cd coming out for ANODIZE, called “OMNIPRESENCE” and under Eraldo’ s own name… it’s a live ambient album, entirely improvised at Darren Bergstein place in NJ…nothing was prepared, everything was flowing… Petulia Mattioli did the live visuals… a moment in time that will never come back and incidentally the first cd ever bearing only Eraldo’s name.
