|SLEEP RESEARCH FACILITY | Stealth 2 x CD (CSR159CD) £12 / £13 / £14|
Shipping: 9th April
Sublime new album from the drone / dark ambient legend. “Stealth” presents itself as an exploration of sounds neither here nor there, textures camouflaged against their own background noise, and the distant crackling telemetric code-speak of a vague humanity hidden behind a cloak of deadly high-technology. Five deeply-layered extended tracks, mixed and edited from re-sampled location recordings originally captured inside the hanger environs of a Northrop-Grumman B-2 Stealth Bomber, during a period of downtime maintenance at a U.S. Air Force base in Cambridgeshire. Original field recordings and texture preparations by FOURM / Si_Comm. First edition pressing of 1000 copies includes bonus disc comprised of this *pre-mix* material in its original, un-edited form, as a representation of the source audio from which “Stealth” was reconstituted. Deep listening inspired by one of the most mysterious aircraft of the 20th century. Headphones recommended.

|BURIAL HEX | Book Of Delusions CD (CSR166CD) £8 / £9 / £10|
Shipping: 9th April
During the period in which Clay Ruby first began working on this piece of art, he had become so completely surrounded by evil and deception that he was forced to begin summoning a particularly extreme and ancient force of protection and vitality just to make it alive through the end of 2008. Aside from spiritually fortifying Ruby’s life, the complexities of these new elemental entities brought with them circumstances causing a much more rich and intense recording experience than he could have ever composed on his own. Classic horror electronics and post-industrial apocalyptic soundscapes with unsettling notes, anguished cries and voices of the dead. His most ritualistic album yet. Reissue of the extremely limited LP with bonus tracks taken from the split LPs with Kinit Her and Zola Jesus, all available on CD for the first time! All tracks have been carefully remastered.

| COLDSTRAIN – ‘I’ CD (Spectral Halls Productions) – £11 / £12 / £13|
Coldstrain arose from the ashes of Karna, following the interior call flickered in the dark chasms of the minds of Horth (Karna, Goatpsalm, Sick Rites) and Asterius (Sal Solaris). Coldstrain have no parallels nor connections with Karna nor Sal Solaris, except their provenance from distinguished authors proving their abilities. Coldstrain is a fusion of sorrowful tectonics within entangled circuits of the creators’ thoughtways. A long monolithic yet polymophic dedication to solitude and its innermost origins, expressed in one half-of-an-hour tapestry woven by guitar drone, noise, dark ambient and a lot of intimate reminicscenses can be nothing except a great experience. “I” is another hall we advise you to enter, but don’t forget that these corridors are not built for you to walk through and around. Ltd x 300 copies in a gatefold digifile.
| DER TOD & DAS MÄDCHEN – ‘D-Moll’ CD (Lichterklang) – £11 / £11 / £12|
Der Tod & Das Mädchen started out in 2009. Their debut album “d-Moll“ is a musical anthology of long forgotten lyricists, harking back to the death of Goethe. The elegies, all evolving from the 19th century, reveal the sadness and the pain of the loss of close relatives. Melancholy and transience, deathwish and madness, dream and reality crystallise themselves out of these thoughts and build the centre of “d-Moll“. Inspired by componists of the romantic times, the extict poetry is mainly based on the dark and melancholic tunes of a piano. The closing words by the German imperator Wilhelm II. from 1904 build the end of the album, questioning the human arrogance with his words “the world is so big and we are so small, how come that we expect to circle everything around us?”. Ltd x 300 copies in a digipak.

| DRAUGURINN – ‘Myrkraverk’ CD (Le Crepuscule Du Soir) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50|
Shamanic and ritualistic music from Sweden featuring dark, sacral, nature, emotions, feelings. Whereas the gloomy dark ambient of the previous album “Daudada” left a lot to the listener’s imagination “Myrkraverk” gives more hints. Nothing obvious, nothing overt, still murky, still questioning, still transcending, but this time slightly more tangible. Now the voices you hear are actually voices, namely whispers and wails, awakened from who knows when, but it was in a place audibly cold, dark, wet and barren. The basic percussion has now evolved into sparse ritualistic percussion made by using shamanic instruments. Once, this was sacred. today, it needs to be remembered and revered again. Ltd x 500 copies.
| GOATPSALM – ‘Erset La Tari’ CD (Aesthetic Death Records) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50|
Second album from this Russian act. Bleak death industrial ambient for the fearless, a dark initiation co-existing with lo-fi noise and raw black metal visitations – an eclectic diversion of auditory dissonance and dissidence. Steeped in demonology, this music will inspire the darkness dwelling in your subconscious. Features members of Karna, Sickrites, Baal Zebuth, Cyber Baphomet etc. A true underground and occult aura surrounds this act of darkness. Ltd x 1000 copies.
| KARNA – ‘Nekronautica: Chronicles Of Lost Souls’ CD (Spectral Halls Productions)|
– £11 / £12 / £13
Blackest Ambient from this Russian act. Karna is dead, and there are no doubts or vain regrets. However, as a perfect creature of Pure primordial Darkness, even after death it continues to paroxysmally emit spawns of its heritage, whose prehensile tentacles are woven deeply into the fabric of our Cosmos. “Nekronautica” is a compilation of different, shattered, sharpened splints of Karna’s inanimate legacy. Unlike other compilations, “Nekronautica” doesn’t sum up any terms, or provide any conclusion or essence, it is just a door to those Darkness of which was told so much, but which become fearfully real only after death, and there is no matter whose. Ltd x 300 copies.

| KARNA / VELEHENTOR – ‘Era Of Cold Hearts / The Asha Blaze – 7 Minutes Later’ CD|
(Nomos Dei) – £11 / £12 / £13
Split album from two great Dark Ambient / Black Ambient Russian formations. Karna presents 4 ominous ambient post-industrial tracks, in the spirit of Melek-Tha and early MZ.412 experiments. Rough textures of noise, ambient viscous substrates, persuasive voice loops and barely perceptible rhythmic structures. “The Asha Blaze – 7 Minutes Later” is a half-hour dedication of the Ural act Velehentor to the major railway accident that occurred near the town of Asha in 1989. Relaxing soundscapes with a foundation or synthetic percussion and spooky atmospherics. The track draws the listener to a depth of sound soft wonder, quietly bringing it to a head in a clear, otherworldly drone. Cleverly composed and appropriately designed material is not for everyday listening. Ltd x 666 copies in a super jewelbox.

| KRASCHAU – ‘Offenbarung’ CD (Twilight Records) – £11 / £12 / £13|
The debut album of a promising new act in the Martial Industrial scene. Inspired by the great empires and kingdoms of Europe, like the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Prussia and 20th century christian and legitimist movements.

The album features various guest musicians from the Hungarian industrial and neofolk scene. Neoclassical / symphonic music with the strictness of martial rhythms and with the power of industrial sounds. For fans of Triarii , Arditi , March of heroes etc. Digipak.
| LCHM – ‘Terra Australis Incognita’ CD (La Esencia) – £11 / £12 / £13|
Debut album from LCHM, inspired by the short stories of Jorn Riel, a Danish writer who lived for 16 years in the most isolated and impervious areas of Greenland in the early 20th Century, at close quarters with the hunters who originally lived there. With this work, LCHM has tried to recreate, by means of sound, the lights and shadows of these great and unknown men who lived extraordinary experiences by relying on their own forces alone, on their adaptability and on their will to survive in an age when you didn’t have much to begin with. LCHM was born out of a passion for audial research, the study of human psychology, and ispirations drawn from several esoteric practices. Deep and wide sounds, bright and obscure, unique and full of nuances. LCHM conceives and records all of its material using sounds captured in nature, in unusual places, or created using other instruments. Digipak.
| MHÖNOS – ‘Humiliati’ CD (Le Crepuscule Du Soir) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50|
Ritualistic Doom Metal from France. Mysterious, ritualistic drones made through bass layers, amplifier worship, possessed chants and Burzum-inspired ambience, Mhönos emerges from his crypt during year MMX to offer his bewitching liturgy to the mass. Dark and bright, ugly and beautiful, overwhelming, uplifting, melodic and droning at times, ritual issued by Mhönos aback and sometimes mixes the horror and the esoteric. Low frequences and tortured voices reign in supreme masters in the unstructured reptation, throbbing and disorder, thorned at irregular intervals by hypnotic psalms scended by haunted voices. Necropiss from The Arrival Of Satan appears on this album. Ltd x 500 copies.
| MOLJEBKA PVLSE – ‘Sadalachbia’ CD (Isoramara) – £11 / £12 / £13|
Brand new studio work by the great Swedish “mysterious drone” project, now a trio consisting of Mathias Josefson, Lena Bergendahl and Karin Jacobson. Three long pieces, siren-like drones, melancholic piano-patterns, harmonium-drones, strangely effected field recordings all set within a very special kind of ambience. The backbone of all these pieces is the drones and the harmonium. They form a swirl of long form sounds on which on top there are sparse sounds the amplified objects and some piano. Presented in an outsize card gatefold sleeve with obi strip.

| MOURNING DAWN – ‘For The Fallen’ 2 x LP (Aesthetic Death Records) – £20 / £25 / £30|
Second album from this French doom metal / black metal act, 2 years after their eponymous debut album. Full of despair and pain, the production is freezing, the material is slower then ever and together with the guest vocals of Jonathan Thery (Ataraxie, Hyadningar, Bethlehem, Funeralium), “For The Fallen” is definitely the sickest effort by this suicidal French band. In the vein of Bethlehem, early Katatonia and Deinonychus. Ltd x 350 copies on splatter vinyl in a sumptuous gatefold sleeve with insert.

| NECROSADIST – ‘Abstract Satan’ CD (Temple Of Flesh / Daemon Worship Productions / |
Blood Harvest) – £10.50 / £11.50 / £12.50
“Abstract Satan” is a proper head-first initiation into the abyss of Necrosadist; a 46-minute blistering deluge of raw Necro Black Metal violence. Serpentine, dynamic song structures gnarling and twisting together titanic, gargantuan riffs, intense blasting machinegun violence, slit-throat vocals that are vomited – not sung, obscure and hypnotic atmospheres, chaotic, wailing guitar solos screaming from the netherworlds and hints of occult psychedelia – all pointing in the only direction possible: downwards towards Hell. Featuring lyrical contributions courtesy of KHZ (Bestia Arcana, Malchira) and MkM (Aosoth, Antaeus). You are nothing but flesh.
| OF THE WAND AND THE MOON – ‘The Lone Descent’ CD (Heidrunar Myrkrunar)|
– £13 / £14 / £15
The long awaited and anticipated 5th album from Denmark’s Of The Wand & The Moon. Kim Larsen takes a different road to the previous albums. 60’s influenced, where the love for Lee Hazlewood and Serge Gainsbourg shines through. Still keeping the dark Neofolk roots, “The Lone Descent” is without doubt the most bleak and melancholic album from Of The Wand & The Moon, and clearly shows Larsen’s brilliant talent as a singer/songwriter. Features guests: Lorenzo Woodrose (Baby Woodrose), Aron, Soma Allpass (Mew, Martin Hall), Bo Rande (The William Blakes, Mew, Blue Foundation), John Murphy (Death In June, Knifeladder, Nico, SPK), John van der Lieth (Sonne Hagal) and Anne Eltard (Solanaceae, OTWATM).

| OLD FORGOTTEN LANDS – ‘Primal CD (Hypnotic Dirge) – £11 / £12 / £13|
Old Forgotten Lands’ much-awaited full-length album ‘Primal’ finally sees the light of day. Whereas the older material was more synth-based ambient, the new material shows a nice progression from musician Elan O’Neal, and has a much more natural and organic feeling. Making use of various unique instruments such as a Tibetan singing bowl, a tambourine, wooden flute, violin, timpani, maracas, among others, as well as the use of field recordings, acoustic guitar, synth, and minimum vocals, when all is said and done, this is an ambitious and well-executed album spanning almost an hour in length. Primal also features guest appearances from some prolific special guests. Overall, this is a fantastic and diverse album which shows incredible maturity in a genre which can sometimes become repetitive and mundane, and should be definitely be appreciated by all fans of ambient, neo-folk, and experimental music. Ltd x 300 copies.

– £14 / £16.50 / £19
Trepaneringsritualen explores themes of religion, magick and the occult realms of consciousness, taking its musical cues from old-school ritual ambient & death industrial. Rhythmic and seething at times, and oozing forward with a creeping sense of desolation, Trepaneringsritualen conjures forth bleak but mesmerising visions of the end-times. Babalon, Consort of Chaos, Sacred Whore and Mother of the Virgin of Eternity. Since the dawn of time She has been with Man and in March of 1949 she was revealed in the flesh. “Deathward, To The Womb” is largely inspired by the Babalon working conducted by Jack Parsons, 1949.

| VARIOUS ARTISTS – ‘The Ballad Of Genesis And Lady Jaye: Music From The Motion Picture’|
CD (Sweet Nothing) – £15 / £16 / £17
The soundtrack to the intimate, affecting portrait of the life and work of ground-breaking performance artist and music pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV) and his other half and collaborator, Lady Jaye, centered around the daring sexual transformations the pair underwent for their “Pandrogyne” project. Featuring music by Psychic TV, Thee Majesty and various collaborators (Bryin Dall, Derek Rush, Tony Conrad). This is a love story, and a portrait of two lives that illustrate the transformative powers of both love and art. In warm and intimate images captured handheld, Marie Losier crafts a labyrinthine mise-en-scene of interviews, home movies, and performance footage. The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye documents a truly new brand of Romantic consciousness, one in defiance of the daily dehumanization of the body by the pervasive presence of advertising and pornography, conveying beauty, dignity and devotion from a perspective never before seen on film.

BLOOD AXIS – ‘Born Again’ CD (Storm) – £13 / £14 / £15
Over the course of the 12 tracks which comprise their 2nd album, “Born Again”, Blood Axis explores an epic yet human universe in which gods are summoned, kingdoms rise, riddles are unlocked, love is lost, and worlds crumble. Whereas early Blood Axis music was marked by keyboards and samples, Blood Axis in 2010 is stripped down to an essential core of natural instrumentation – electric and acoustic strings, melodeon, piano, highland bagpipes and Galician gaita, marching percussion, the mysterious Annabel-a-tron, and Bobby BeauSoleil’s growling, prison-vintage guitar eruptions circa 1976. Underpinning the album and propelling much of the music is the traditional Irish bodhrán, recorded here with unprecedented power. Moynihan’s ominous voice is well matched by Annabel Lee’s elfin intonations, just as her violin finds a perfect counterpoint in Robert Ferbrache’s protean guitar parts. Shot through by myth and romance, the expressive lyrics on “Born Again” have their roots in ancient and modern poetry, archaic invocations and tragic laments. Both unclassifiable and unforgettable: neither folk nor rock, traditional nor avant-garde, modern nor archaic, it is simply Blood Axis. To everything there is season. For those who are cursed, a time to die and to be forgotten. And for the blessed, a time to be born again: to live on, beyond death, in the minds of men. Now is the time for Blood Axis to be Born Again. Packaged in a beautiful gatefold outsize cover with foilblock lettering and a 24-page booklet.
BLOOD AXIS – ‘Ultimacy’ CD (Storm) – £13 / £14 / £15
“Ultimacy” collects the final versions of all the singles and compilation tracks released by Blood Axis during the two decades since the project was founded (1991-2011). Stunning versions of well known BA classics such as ‘The Hangman And The Papist’, ‘Eternal Soul’, ‘The March Of Brian Boru’, ‘Wir Rufen Deine Wölfe’. These pieces appear in a reverse chronological order, beginning with more recent work and moving back through time to the distant past. Blood Axis explore European folklore; German occultism; Norse and Perso-Roman mythology; fatalism, militarism and Nietzschean romanticism through folk rock, ritual pieces and menacing electronica. Expertly re-mastered by Blood Axis member and renowned studio engineer Robert Ferbrache, “Ultimacy” presents these rare tracks in their ideal form, exactly as the band itself has always heard and envisioned them. Guests include: Stephen Flowers (Edred Thorsson), Boyd Rice (NON), Thomas Thorn (My Life with the Thrill Kill Kill Kult / Electric Hellfire Club), and Markus Wolff (Waldteufel). Presented in a spot-varnished gatefold digisleeve with printed inner sleeve.
