Artist: REGAN
Title: Sellisternia
Format: CD
Label: High Priestess (@)
Distributor: Projekt, CD Baby, CD Street, etc.
SELLISTERNIA ("Feast for the Goddess") is the first release of a girl who fell in love with techno rhythms, gothic atmospheres and medieval singing style: this girl is called Regan. The reasons of this musical blend is because the past musical experiences Regan had: she studied classical music since the early ages but in 1993 when she left Boston to move to L.A. she started to link with people of the DJing and goth scene. This brought her to strengthen her interest about electronic, industrial and gothic music. SELLISTERNIA is like divided into two different parts: the first five tracks (along with the last one "Airetaina") are more influenced by classical music, medieval melodies and fairy voices (part which is boring for my tastes). The following six are more intestesting as they mix jazz, ambient, techno and goth with 50's style vocals. Even if this music isn't my cup of tea I found this CD interesting because of the variety of musical ideas but if you love these kind of sounds for sure you'll find it more than interesting.

Artist: I ME MINE
Title: Politisch Verdachtig
Format: CD
Label: DAC Productions (@)
Distributor: DEAF American / EU '91 / Napalmed / Deliria / etc.
If you like sick sounds this I Me Mine's CD is your occasion to feel insanity, because it gathers extreme noise industrial sounds and Belorussian folk elements. The seven tracks contained into POLITISCH VERDACHTIG are collages of random industrial sounds with some distorted rhythms here and there: something which could prove your senses, expecially the twenty one minutes of "Moving Away" with its sounds deconstruction which really proved my listening. I don't mean that this Dreaming About Cannibalism release is a bad one but for sure it isn't easy to enjoy. If you like noisy anarchic extravaganzas try this...

Artist: OTEP (@)
Title: Sevas Tra
Format: CD
Label: Capitol
Ever wondered to listen something like Lidia Lunch singing in a jam session which sees Korn and Brutal Truth involved? Nope? Well, if you listen to Otep's first album SEVAS TRA this could be the impression. I don't know why Capitol sent me an advance copy of their first album which contains seven out of twelve tracks but since it could be enjoyed also by industrial/gothic listeners, here I am reviewing it... Well, the particularity of a lot of songs is the experimental spoken pauses which serve to give a major dramatic sense to the following explosion of agony, where the distorted vocals sounds really wild, even if the singer is a girl. The band earned a spot on Ozzfest 2001 without a record deal and that live show allowed them to sign to a major label without a demo thanks to the power and the brutality of their live show. All the seven tracks of the CD are extreme and sound desperate and I think that you'll see them on MTV and similar channels really soon.

Artist: DETRITUS (@)
Title: Sense/Martyr
Format: CD
Label: Fleshmadeword (@)
Dave Dando Moore is a guy coming from Whitehill, UK and he's also the founder of a new label called Fleshmadeword. Detritus is his musical project and SENSE/MARTYR gathers his first two MCDs. Musically the eight tracks of the CD deal with industrial, noise treatments, various electronic sounds, orchestral arrangements and rhythmical extravaganzas. The first thing that catched me has been the way Dave treats samples, because there's always something that change into the track's structure, just like as the sound is evolving while the tracks is played and this is very useful to focus listeners' attention. Also the upbeat tempos used are very energetic and along with the use of sounds coming from different sources give to tracks like "Sense" or "Detritus" a dramatic sense, as it was an industrial soundtrack. Visit his website and give Detritus a try, it's worth it!

Dark, Ambient electronic mood music. This first release by Anderson instantly takes the listener on a journey into a realm of the dark unknown. Combining elements of Ambient, Industrial and various eclectic and experimental self contrived electronic audio structures and even utilizes some tribal elements.

If you like music like Patrick O'hearn's album Indigo then you will love Robert Anderson's work as this is the closest comparison I could possibly make to this album.

You will find some New Age elements prevalent on some pieces while others are more tribal or industrial sounding. This is definitely great mood music for whatever purpose; meditating, message, trance, sexual intercourse, etc. The sounds are so originally constructed that they create a virtual landscape for the mind to contemplate, dark though it may be. The themes may even instill fear in some more timid listeners but will sound ethereally beautiful for those who enjoy a darker shade of life.

These compositions are originally composed and intended it seems for BDSM and other similar adult play.
