|GOATVARGR | Black Snow Epoch CD (CSR126CD) £8 / £9 / £10|
|Shipping: 21st June|
The second unholy union of Lord Nordvargr (MZ.412, Folkstorm, Toroidh etc) and Goat (USA). Time, pilgrimages and bloodlines have been bourn since the first testament of Goatvargr was witnessed in this era of false knowledge. The first covenant of Goatvargr was baleful, lycanthropic and lethiferous. A rejection of the techgnostic kingdom and circuitry idols which seduce our era. The downfall of light has brought a world of coldness. This Black Snow Epoch is a time to honour our forbearers such as MZ.412 and the elements of flesh, wood and alchemical steel. Industrial loops and analogue keyboards merge with sheet metal and chains to create a solemn winter hymn where the cold steel stings your flesh. The wolf instinctively hunts through the frost, and the goat is blamed for human transgressions, yet during the Black Snow Epoch, the true hunters will pursue. Foldout poster cover.

|FIRE IN THE HEAD | Confessions Of A Narcissist CD (CSR120CD) £10 / £11 / £12|
“Confessions Of A Narcissist” marks the final full-length release by Fire In The Head ending six years of sonic warfare with an assault of manic, self-indulgent industrial electronics. Drawing as much influence from early punk / hardcore as from industrial / power electronics, FI/T/H was conceived as a cathartic outlet to explore and ratify the delusions and social perversions resultant of psychosis and the darker side of man’s conflicted dual nature, to fan the flames which engulf the borders between obsession, compulsion, lust and need. The tracks on this release were recorded in 2007-2008 and are the last of the “short, sharp, shock” vocal tracks which Michael abandoned in favour of “epic” length industrial / ambient compositions. Features guest appearances from Nick Blinko (Rudimentary Peni) and J. Randall (Agoraphobic Nosebleed), with exclusive artwork from Blinko.

|ATARAXIA – ‘Concerto No. 6: A Baroque Plaisanterie’ CD (Twilight Records) – £11 / £12 / £13|
Reissue of Ataraxia’s 1996 album (Apollyon), remastered with an exclusive bonus track. Contain 9 songs taken from the original album, plus “Orlando, A Female” from the “Orlando” EP and Ataraxia’s version of Franz Schubert’s ‘Ave Maria’. “Concerto No. 6” was inspired by Ataraxia’s admiration for the stylistic canons of Baroque music, a music that incessantely pursued an aesthetical-formal elegance that was sometimes the mirror of an inner beauty. A deeply felt tribute to the Music Maestros of the past, a suffered research in the profound meaning of music, a personal homage to the impressive film of A. Corneau “Tous les matins du Monde”, a dialogue between our earthly dimension and the ones we belong before being born and after death, an individual contribution to the Baroque harmonies and age, a subtle balance between formal beauty, passion and spontaneity, a singular excursion in the purity of sound.

|DER BLUTHARSCH – ‘Live In Leiden’ CD (WKN) – £11 / £12 / £13|
The 3rd album in a series of live recordings – after “Live at The Monastery” and “Live in Copenhagen”. “Live in Leiden” was recorded at “The Night of Confusion” held 28th September 2004 at legendary LVC venue. This recording is a document of that night. At the same time it is the last live recording of the “old” Blutharsch – a small reminder about what Der Blutharsch was dreaded for before they morphed into “era two” and turned into a dark psychedelic kraut monster. This is a great live document of a concert of the thee band who invented “martial industrial” as well as “military pop” – a MUST of all die hard fans of this genre as well as for people who want to know why this band once has been considered “dangerous”. The CD comes in a foilblocked digipak.

|DERNIÈRE VOLONTÉ – ‘Immortel’ CD (Hau Ruck!) – £11 / £12 / £13|
Dernière Volonté’s 5th studio album took 4 years in making and marks their 15th anniversary! It is a huge development from the former style which redefined the therm “military pop” to a more homogeneous, less neoclassical but much more modern in sounds, more electronic but organic at the same time – and reinvents a style Geoffroy D has been influenced since his early days. The themes on “Immortel” are effected by books, movies or personal experiences of Geoffroy but reflect in general his personal feelings about beloved people and their spirit which is and always will be present in our souls and memories. “Immortel” is another milestone in the oeuvre of one of France`s most interesting band from the underground scene and will for sure attract fans from the early days but a lot of new fans from other musical scenes. Debossed, spot-varnished digipak with 16-page booklet.

|INADE – ‘The Incarnation Of The Solar Architects’ 2 x LP (Loki Foundation) – £20 / £24 / £28|
There is a world that shadows our world; a world of mysterious design and unspoken secrets; of space that breathes and infinite echoes that never cease to cry. Mirrors that refract images into dark pools of cosmic nothingness. Inade explore these worlds on their latest masterpiece, in which sound is utilised in a transformative manner, not only to focus on that which lies beyond and that which has never been seen, but to embrace the Darkness and let it wash over one’s soul. The mythology that Inade has created touches that place beyond forever, yet now, through the insistence of that which lurks in the margins, a metamorphosis has transpired, in which the cosmos of self has awakened. Inade provide the soundtrack… the frisson of unease is abundant, a churning, seething dread that veers into awe. It’s up to the individual listener to listen intently, behind shuttered eyelids… to see and experience the true labyrinthine hierarchy of black splendor that awaits. Ltd x 344 copies on black vinyl in a stunning gatefold sleeve. ACT FAST!

|KIRLIAN CAMERA – ‘Pictures From Eternity’ CD (Twilight Records) – £14 / £15 / £16|
Re-release of one of Kirlian Camera’s most legendary albums. Originally on Discordia in 1996, now reissued with 3 exclusive bonus tracks. ‘Pictures…’ marked the return of Kirlian Camera to their earlier, darker, romantic and melodic days. It’s a definite retro album and includes some of the most beautiful tracks Angelo Bergamini has written in 20 years. Kirlian Camera today are without a doubt one of the most important acts in the electro scene and this work marked one of the peak moments of their career, often regarded as their most ‘accessible’ and most ‘darkwave’ album. Limited to just 300 copies in a digipak. ACT FAST!

|NADJA – ‘Ruins Of Morning’ 10″ (Substantia Innominata / Drone Records) – £12 / £14 / £16|
“Ruins Of Morning” shows NADJA in a very experimental and dark poetic mood. Their contribution for the “Substantia Innominata” series comes in two long parts (around 20mins each) based around one musical theme that appears again and again (a great dark harmonic phrase moving through different levels through this epic track), linked by very beautiful drone-sections and more noisy outbursts. Song-orientation and a more experimental sound-art approach are thus combined perfectly. The fantastic lyrics from Aidan Baker point in a very poetic way to an utopian new morning where material values play no role anymore, but a new state of sensual being is settled in an almost J.G.BALLARDian way. These lyrics open up a scope of vague possible interpretations witch match up perfectly with the impressing music; a music that describes “The Unknown” in strong metaphors of surrealistic psychic states of being. Experience the avant-gardish drone-doom-metal duo at their most dark and beautiful. Ltd x 500 copies on golden coloured vinyl.

|NADJA / TROUM – ‘Dominium Visurgis’ CD (Transgredient) – £12 / £13 / £14|
This is something you could call a “dreamlike liaison”. When the Canadian “avant metal / drone doom” duo Nadja and the German post-industrial / experimental drone pioneers Troum (years ago active as Maeror Tri) combine their exceptional styles, they form something even vaster as usually known from them. These three long collaboration tracks were recorded as a result of a spontaneous improvisation in April 2008 “live in the studio” near the Weser-river in Bremen, Germany, and suck you in with their powerful and emotional drone melancholy that works in many micro and macrocosmic ways, using electric and acoustic guitars, bass, accordion, drum-machine and voice. Presented in a stunning 8-panel digipak with copper / black print.

|PENJAGA INSAF – ‘Sama Sadja’ CD (Power & Steel / Loki Foundation) – £11 / £12 / £13|
For several years Ingo Sauerbrey made extensive travels through Indonesia, always carrying recording equipment to collect sounds as an audio diary. During periodic return trips to Germany, he started to work on the recordings with electronic devices. Some sounds were edited, cut and transformed, while others were kept completely intact. Water Puppet and Shadow Theatres, Gamelan and various welcoming and fighting dances like Kecak, Jegog and the Tarian Caci were used for this album. “Sama Sadja” weaves together the sounds of living traditions, religions and languages with spherical ambient pads and electronically edited drones from the field recordings. This is an contemplative and intimate soundtrack from the deepest heart of South East Asia.

|QUIMERA MUSIC – ‘Love And Madness’ CD (Twilight Records) – £11 / £12 / £13|
“Love And Madness” reflects Quimera’s unique style of Classical-Baroque, Gothic and Symphonic sounds, carefully crafted into powerful music that is paired with lyrics of deep meaning. The artist states “Love And Madness is more than my debut album, it is my own revelation of love, fear, hope, and the touch of madness which I believe is inherent within all powerful feelings. I want my music to inspire others, to take them places in their minds, and maybe even help them go through whatever difficult thing they may be going through, perhaps things they can’t even speak about to anyone. Music is the only way I know to express the inexpressible.” Digipak.
|SKROL – ‘New Laws / New Orders’ CD (Twilight Records) – £11 / £12 / £13|
The return of one of the most amazing industrial acts! The conception of of Czech ensemble Skrol arose from the visions of its spiritual father Vladimír Hirsch in autumn 1995, when he was joined by Martina Sanollová-Sweeney and Tom Saivon. Skrol employ original principles of composition, with the added depth of classical influences. Their inspiration derives mainly from Slavic melodic and harmonic systems. “New Laws / New Orders” was originally an instrumental suite of Vladimír Hirsch, created in 2000, later reworked alongside some unreleased pieces from 1996-1999. Skrol’s majestic and uncompromising music is based on specific melodiousness and orchestration of contemporary neoclassical music, situated in the arch of industrial ambient and brutalised by noises and modern technological sounds. This album represents the “swan song” of the band, being its last activity. Digipak.

|TAPHEPHOBIA – ‘Access To A World Of Pain’ CD (Greytone) – £11 / £12 / £13|
The Dark Ambient music Taphephobia (aka Ketil Søraker, ex-Northaunt) makes is mostly based on manipulated guitars. Taphephobia tries to express the feelings Ketil has at the moment he composes his music. The idea is to create an atmosphere that is sometimes scary and sometimes beautiful, like, for example, a good thriller movie. Taphephobia is very skilled in the creation of cinematic atmospheres, combined with personal feelings of fear, hope, hate, regrets etc… The main goal is to make the listener able to dream away with the music. Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak.

|TOPOGRAFIA – ‘Genius Loci’ CD (Greytone) – £11 / £12 / £13|
“Genius Loci” uses deep drones, ambient soundscapes, acoustic instruments alongside field recordings captured near Jaworzno, Poland. The project was inspired by the author’s personal fascination with the diversity of nature and the philosophy of Schopenhauer, who considered nature to be one of the most primaeval manifestations of a blind and aimless will, a will which we too are a part of. Topografia is Maciej Banasik (founder of Atum). Ltd x 500 copies in a digipak.
|TROUM – ‘Eald-Ge-Stréon’ CD (Beta-Lactam Ring Records) – £12 / £13 / £14|
Welcome to the Thunderdome. Troum’s bone-cracking reverberations respirate with such ferocity that all non-Troum molecules are blown away. “Eald-Ge-Stréon” is a massive, rising beauty. It is a great becoming, and we are nothing but an ant in the afterbirth. Troum has set its controls beyond the heart of the Sunn. The pulsating inferno of these 7 drone concertos may require an insurance adjuster, but what a lovely way to burn. It is in your nature to do one thing correctly. Before Troum, you rightly tremble. But fear is not what you owe Troum. You owe Troum awe! Comes in mini-gatefold cover with strange metallic silver-blue layout by Stephen O’Malley (Sunn O))), Thorr’s Hammer, Gravetemple, Æthenor etc) and photography by Seldon Hunt.

ANTLERS MULM – ‘Of Withered Sparks’ CD (Loki Foundation) – £11 / £12 / £13
The third album of Antlers Mulm opts for deep resonating tones that are harmonious and hypnotic with a greater emphasis on percussion, and the massive foray into song based structures. Dark beats linked with electro-pop vibes bring highlights of an extraordinary world of sound. Phantasmagorial melodies melt into an intense atmosphere guided by the voice of Hans Johm. These 10 songs catch the mood of the warm feeling of being at home and create a landscape of a coruscant kingdom that lies deep within the lyrical and musical expression. Digipak with booklet.

The absolute response to the nightmare that is the world we live in. Ex.Order is the alter-ago of Inade.
FJERNLYS – ‘Ascending Triads & Luminous Arcs’ 2 x CD (Loki Foundation)
– £15 / £16 / £17
Behind this project hides one of Inade‘s masterminds – Knut Enderlein. On this first disc, the songs layer cosmic and synthetic sounds and go on tracing according to the principle harmony in the music, their acoustic space feeling very expansive. The voices creep crosswise into sounds and effects to lunar spheres and solar places. The five remixes and interpretations of Antlers Mulm, Bad Sector, First Law and Lovespell on the second disc support the complex character of the whole release and expand the into a new style of Ambient songs. More ‘song’ based than Inade, Fjernlys reminds of fellow Loki act Predominance. Presented in a double jewel case with a very nice slipcase to finish.
