We return the the hallowed days of early’80s Broken Flag with the absolute classic “Statement” compilation. Ramleh, Un-Kommuniti, Pure and… Read more Various Artists – Statement
With the full NWN/Hospital Japan Fest line up announced, we go all in on Thirdorgan, the cyborg of night two. “Jinzonigen” is Thirdorgan’s 1998 LP on Harbinger Sound. We answer the questions posed in the track titles. We prepare for the dystopian future where Hakaider and Loch Ness Monster will lead us to new lands. Thirdorgan is the harshest of them all, and this LP showcases exactly why. Do you believe?
We remain in the zone for stone cold classics, and it felt like a fitting time to revisit some MB.… Read more MB – Aktivitat
S-Core simply exists. There is no beginning or end. “My Candle Has Died” has always been there, it just took S Core to tap into the stream and bring it to life. A perfect album on a perfect label. These things live in no time and in all times. S-Core resides in mind. S-Core forever and ever.
Sean Ragon (Cult of Youth) was the perfect person to join us to uncover the classic Metgumbnerbone “Ligeliahorn” LP on A-Mission Records from 1983. A truly mysterious project, Metgumbnerbone creates their own world and we are all more than happy to walk around the industrial ruins and abandoned mills where the recordings were made. This album is a staple for post-industrial and is cloaked in a fantastic mythology ripe for discovery.
With the return of the Self Abuse Murder Series, we wanted to put up one of our Patreon episodes on the original Murder Series over here on the regular feed. March to 1980s Soviet Russia with this month’s Case History as Skin Crime tackles the werewolf-like existence of Andrei Chikatilo on the “Monster” 7″. We get into the life of the Butcher of Rostov and how perfectly the noise relates to his murders. Stay away from train stations and woods, but keep this 7″ close. You never know who you will run into.
Shane English returns and brought with him possibly the most obscure album we’ve covered thus far — NSI “M Plays Havoc.” A huge mystery from 1980s France, this self released slice of industrial ambience is shrouded in fog. A friend of Shane’s was able to track down a member of NSI and supplied us with some info and history behind this hidden project.
Break the metal mold with Chop Shop “Steel Plate.” A heavy release in every sense, we explore the sonic sculptures of Scott Konzelmann. Two 10″s and a booklet strapped to a sheet of metal, this is one of the great 90s noise packages. Listen and witness physical sounds through visible sources
Papa Noel crosses our doorstep in the form of the self-titled Kallabris LP. Whip up a holiday cocktail and trudge through the snow to witness the darkly tense strings and low noise being performed in rooms beyond your reach.
KK Null’s “Saishiyu Butshitsu” LP from 1985 was recommended to us and we were all blown away. Brand new to us, this album hits all the right notes. In the moment physical brutality brings us to many different spaces in our brain. KK Null has a widely varied discography, but this LP sits firmly in the land of pure noise. A new favorite for Noisextra.
