DISUMANA RES-possession and trance(c46-B.A.O.-1991)

side a consists ov one single 23 minute long track: de operatione daemonum - deeply trancing slow ritual industrial percussions set amidst droning atmospheres and chants with esoteric sound collaging technique for a magnificent effect!! plenty ov ethereal elements with an almost restrained dub-type progression late in thee piece which transitions to strange sound collaging!!

a01-de operatione daemonum
b01-inrus est adversarius
b02-homo homini diabulus

DISUMANA RES-the Gorgon(c60 B.A.O. prods 1997)

"In Greek mythology, the Gorgon (plural: Gorgons) (Greek: Γοργών or Γοργώ Gorgon/Gorgo) was a terrifying female creature. It derives from the Greek word gorgós, which means "dreadful." While descriptions of Gorgons vary across Greek literature, the term commonly refers to any of three sisters who had hair of living, venomous snakes, and a horrifying gaze that turned those who beheld it to stone. Traditionally, while two of the Gorgons were immortal, Stheno and Euryale, their sister Medusa was not, and was slain by the mythical hero Perseus.

Gorgons were a popular image of Greek mythology, appearing in the earliest of written records of Ancient Greek religious beliefs such as those of Homer. Because of their legendary gaze, images of the Gorgons were put upon objects and buildings for protection. For example, an image of a Gorgon holds the primary location at the pediment of the temple at Corfu. It is the oldest stone pediment in Greece and is dated to c. 600 BC."

this cassette released on Biotope Art Organization presents wondrously esoteric ritual elektronikx which utilise astonshing combinatory non-linear techniques which create a tremendously dreadful; yet enticingly powerfull effect both in their ascension and descension!! to peer into thee vision created tis to understand thee force ov thee Gorgon's gaze and it's ability to transform one to stone!!

Track listing:

part I - the rise
part II - the fall

KARCERAL FLESH-au suivant(c60-diy-1994-France)

Elated to be able to present this cassette contributed to us from thee collection ov Guglielmo Lanzilli [Biotope Art Organisation]!! Au Suivant [The Following] tis my personal favorite ov all ov thee Karceral Flesh releases we have shared thus far!! Karceral Flesh was thee French projekt ov Franck Kervizic who was accompanied for this recording by Lagartija Nick [guitars/ bass], Fedrico Iovino [percussions], and C.C. La Mouette [voix feminine]!!

Dors [sleep] begins thee cassette with an amazing restrained piano introduction which transitions to a continuation ov thee restrained piano work, dissonant guitar wailing, and somber feminine vocalisations!! thee piece steps up in tempo a bit with great industrial percussions before dissipating with a slow rumbling synthesizer bass outro!!

Agonie En Dentelle [Agony In Lace] begins with more dissonant guitar/bass work and restrained percussion, and steps up into a more anthemic progression with drear masculine vocalisations!!

Faire L'Amour Avec Son Sang [Make Love With His Blood] drearily rocking restrained industrial with masculine vocals!!

Qu'as-Tu Vu? [What did you see?] mid tempo elektronik sequencing begins this piece and tis met with restrained percussions, heaviilly flanged guitar work, and plodding bass!! drear masculine vocals, and psychotic feminine vocalisations make this a rather enticing piece!!

Seche Tes Yeux! [Tumble Your Eyes!] dissonant guitar, slow plunking bass, and restrained percussions are met with gruff masculine vocals!! thee chorus repeats thee title "Seche Tes Yeux!"!!

Le Sourire T.D.M. [The Smile T.D.M.] begins with plodding goth bass and restrained percussion, and steps up into effing great sustained percussive attack with bass accents and ethereal dissoant guitar material!! thee piece alternates this pattern ov restraint and attack!!

La Petite Fille [The Little Girl] mid-tempo goth-rocking industrial with more ov Franck's depressive sounding vocals!!

Inhuman World tis an instrumental piece ov fairly experimental minimal restrained semi-dissonant tones with very sparse synthesizer bass presence!! later in thee piece thee tempo picks up, and continues to follow similar structure ov delivery before transitioning to alternating sparse tones and ethereal synthesizer washes ov sound!!

A La Glorie... [In The Glory ...] restrained percussions with beauteous depressive guitar progressions are met with more ov C.C. La Mouette's somber beatific vocals!!

Pour Le Reve [??- do not know if this tis titled for the 1920s French silent movie, a painting by Pablo Picasso, or thee novel by Emile Zola..] ethereal synthesizer work with restrained kick sequencing and trancing bells provide a backing for more beatific melancholy feminine vocals!! about 5 minutes in there tis a break to very restrained quiet thundering bit-stretched sample reverberations which are met with bits ov anxious ticking, and quiet washes ov fm static before fading away..

Le Jugement [the judgement] slow ticking, reverberating tambourine shaking, thundering toms pace out a slow progression with quiet synthesizer work and sparse slowed masculine vocals which last for nearly twelve minutes..

Le Jugement II [the judgement II] tis an even more somber progressions ov minimal tones and synth/organ accompaniment!!

400 REM tis one ov the masterpieces ov this projekts output!! restrained percussions are accompanied by plodding synth with accents which sound like bowed violins, and more ov those sunless feminine vocals!! sadly thee piece ends much too soon for my tastes.. tis sooo amazing!!

Sourire... [Smiling] again: restrained percussions, melancholy synthesizer progression, and dusky and angsty feminine vocalisations to conclude this brilliant cassette!!

interesting 4 - way split here ov power elektronikx artists.. appears that this was also released with different art on thee New Noise label from thee Netherlands which was run by Peter Zincken as a sub-label ov Nihilistic Recordings.. no label listed on this version exactly.. maybe Constantemente?? dunno..

Macronympha tis thee projekt ov Pittsburgh, PA us artists Joseph Roemer and Rodger Stella.. their back-catalog tis rather copious.. thee track that they provide here tis much as would be expected from this genre: cacophanous barrages ov washed out power elektronikx.. fairly interesting conflagratory material..

G-Hörsturz tis listed as being thee projekt ov German artist Martin Gebauer.. more bombastic power elektronikx here..

Bizarre Uproar tis thee projekt ov Finnish artist Pasi Markkula.. great power elektronikx with thee "jesus, FUCK YOU!!" sample from thee film "The Exorcist" thrown in there a cpl times..
