AETHYR – ‘Messio’ CD (R.A.I.G.) – £11 / £12 / £13

Aethyr rises again with a punishing slab of blackened industrial doom, with a generous helping of samples from occultist Aleister Crowley. “Messio” is an all-new album but it continues the cryptic and menacing atmosphere of the debut “Mass” EP utilising the leaden riffage of sub-tuned bass guitar, layers of harsh textured distortion and electronic ambience, discordant guitar soloing and synth stabs, indecipherable ennui-laden voices and steady slow-motion martial percussion. The duo’s apocalyptic epiphanies of future times are dark and cold borrowing equally from erratic aesthetic of industrial music and the most extreme forms of black and doom metal. File next to Earth, Corrupted, Einstürzende Neubauten, Melvins and Skullflower. Presented in a black hand-assembled cardboard folder with silver metallic printing and inlay.

ATARAXIA – ‘Os Cavaleiros Do Templo’ CD & DVD (Dying Art Productions) – £30 / £33 / £36

CLIMAX DENIAL – ‘All Of My Loves Are Like Dreams’ CD (Assembly Of Hatred)
– £11 / £12 / £13

After numerous CDr and cassette releases, Hong Kong label Assembly of Hatred brings us the first proper CD release from Climax Denial, and what a bruiser it is. A dark and intense power electronics / death industrial hybrid, full of thick, squalling drones, uneasy textures, and throbbing frequency pulsations, occupying a sonic terrain somewhere between Brighter Death Now, early Navicon Torture Technologies and Atrax Morgue. Delivered with precision and force. Ltd x 300 copies. Recommended!!

COLD FUSION – ‘Rundfunktechnische Versuchsanstalt I’ CD (War Office Propaganda /
Rage In Eden
) – £11 / £12 / £13

DEAD RAVEN CHOIR – ‘Lonesome Drinking Metal’ CD (Doom-Mantra Records)
– £11 / £12 / £13

The latest album by Poland’s black metal / avant-garde / noisers Dead Raven Choir (aka Smolken from Wolfmangler). This time with a collection of standard country music covers done in their ever distinctive shroud of soulless scuzz. Don’t worry, the songs are barely recognisable unless you know the originals really well. The lo-fi darkness captured on this CD is everything you’d come to expect from DRC. So hear you go, bust out some brews, pop this into the CD player and let’s see if we can’t get your soul to burn a little bit hotter. Ltd x 500 copies.

MARCH OF HEROES – ‘Liberation’ CD (War Office Propaganda / Rage In Eden)
– £11 / £12 / £13

After many years of silence, the much-anticipated new album of Polish act March Of Heroes is finally here! March of Heroes has created music similar to their debut album “March For Glory”. Still present is the bombastic percussion, orchestral arrangements and melancholic, dark ambient atmospheres which make March of Heroes bravely enter the regions of Toroidh or Karjalan Sissit. Comes in a digipak.

PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT – ‘Austere’ CD (Monorail Trespassing) – £11 / £12 / £13

Five years in the making, and the first duo recordings, created between 2004-9. Moving past the harsh noise cutups but not eschewing them entirely; rather, moving forward to areas of sound collage, music-concrete, field recording and electroacoustic. A calculated and controlled effort. Every sound strategically placed in the narrative. At the core of each track rests layers of cold, minimal electronic drones, which form the skeleton of the album. The progression continues. Ltd x 1000 copies.

PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT – ‘East Fork / North Fork’ CD (Monorail Trespassing) – £11 / £12 / £13

Reissue of 2 tracks recorded in 2009 and originally released on the the extremely limited cassette on Housecraft Recordings (Ltd x 50 copies) plus 2 bonus previously unreleased tracks from 2010. 32 minutes of new music. Reflective of Pedestrian Deposit’s live sets of the past year and a half. Residing in the netherworld between various genres, as usual – Noise, Abstract, Dark Ambient. Ltd x 500 copies.

THE JOY OF NATURE – ‘The Empty Circle Part III: Anitya’ CD (War Office Propaganda /
Rage In Eden
) – £11 / £12 / £13

Anitya is that which has no existence in the beginning and no existence in the end. Its nature is impermanence. The record was created in two different and very special periods of time and it musically unites both western and eastern sounds. The tracks contained are the musical expression of different kinds of dreams. It consists of folk, experimental, psychedelic and industrial elements and even classical music but sounding, in various places, like ritual music. The structures of the tracks owe as much to classical as to psychedelic music. Digipak.

Rage In Eden

Ad Ombra returns with a distinguished opus, this time reaching the heights of malignant Drama, in a suite of 12 tracks of majestic excess and voluptuously carven diversity.

Ultimately emotional dramatic art with an excellent production, not to be missed by the admirers of modern classical masters, industrial, dark ambient, opera / ethereal voices, Elend, Devil Doll or The Protagonist. 6-panel digipak.

FROZEN FACES – ‘Broken Sounds Of A Dying Culture’ CD (Wrotycz Records)
– £11 / £12 / £13

“The year is 1996 I was surfing on cold waves through the very heart of Linkopia, night after night it was all the same. Sleeping in the Karmanik basement seduced by delirium echoing between white concrete walls. I could hear the equipment slowly disintegrating as I put out the light, broken sounds of a dying culture. This might be the erosion of history eternally scraping on the crown of mankind… or was it just the decline of my personal belongings after years of abuse… and was there any difference between the two theories? I stretched out my limb and pressed the record-button” – Lina Baby Doll (Deutsch Nepal). Originally released on LP by Entartete Musikk (1996). Remastered with new artwork and bonus tracks from the “Religion of Hate” 7″. Presented in an A5 foldout sleeve.

“Those who worship at the altar of all that is slow and low and heavy and sludgey and doomy and droney, you must now bow before a new lord, the duo from New York known simply as Wicked King Wicker. After three records, each heavier than the last, comes Borne Black, a sprawling black sun explosion of creepy crawly riffage, lumbering lugubrious tempos, tarpit sludge, and spaced out abstract buzz and shimmer, if you fancy Moss, Bunkur, Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, SUNNO))), Wolf Eyes, Khanate, Skullflower, Human Quena Orchestra, Monarch, Corrupted, Otesanek, Habsyll, and all the various other denizens of the inky black dronedirgedoom underworld, and have yet to hear WKW, you are in for a treat.

Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, SUNN O))), Skullflower, Khanate, Wolf Eyes, Bunkur, etc. Any of those names get your blood boiling, then WKW just might be your favorite new band…. pounding abstract percussion, all draped over near static whitenoise buzz, weird krauty grooves, woozy metallic crawls, pulsing metallic ambience, and heavy heavy hypnotic dirgedoomdronemusick” (Aquarius). Ltd x 1000.
