v.a.-devastating templaric sounds 2(c90,italy-b.a.o.-1990)

ecstasy in these sunless days!! following thee first ov these: we have Devastating Templaric Sounds 2!! sometimes thee understanding that things have been laying hidden away beyond reach can create an enrichment to thee enjoyment ov knowing that thee desire for those things has been brought to fruition.. for others who have similarly desired these Biotope Art Organization releases; perchance you may find a similitude ov sentiment as well..

Tomografia Assiale Computerizzata has seen quite an ammount ov change amongst thee members ov it's lineup over thee nearly thirty years since when it initially began it's existence.. Simon Balestrazzi having been it's core member throughout.. thee track which T.A.C. provides here tis an astonishing piece ov ritual ambiance with slow horns, gongs, chantings.. ethereal and beauteous!!

Factor 42 was thee projekt ov Alex Kane thee person behind thee US label GPC Productions.. thee piece which he provides here has slow repetitious throat-singing, sparse synthesizer and percussive presences, and Kananowicz's oration ov thee Tibetan sky burial..

Therabaqud Leic tis thee projekt ov Italian occult sound artist Gianluigi Russolo who in thee last yaer has offered thee astounding Aurebus Alchemickal Frequency release on thee great German experimental label Surrism Phonoethics!! thee piece provided here features slowed repetitive samples ov wind instrumentation and flourishes ov delayed percussive sounds..

Archon Satani "a dark ritual project, playing eerie and haunting industrial ambient music with a satanic background, obsessive percussions and frightening demonic voices.. thee original line-up consisted ov Tomas Pettersson [Ordo Equilibrio, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio, No Festival Of Neither Light Order Roses Nor Equilibrium, TriORE, Victoria..] and Mikael Stravöstrand.. they worked together from 1990 to 1993, then the former went on to form Ordo Equilibrio, while the latter continued under the name Archon Satani, as well as with his other projects: Inanna, The Skull, Vita, Bulgur Brothers, Entarte, Luus, Men In Slippers, Stavöstrand & Skugge.." thee track provided for this comp consists ov excellent restrained synthesizer progression, throbbing ritual percussive sequencing, and anguished effected vocalisations!!

prior to this cassette was unfamiliar with Eliphas Usher, but now am rather curious about thee label which he was a part ov: Industrial Ölocaust Recordings.. "established in 1989.. thee label tis a subsidiary entity of thee Akkademia Esoterica Üsher and was conceived in order to reveal the A.E.Ü.'s Sound Grimoire.. The A.E.Ü. tis an Italian private organization involved in magical and mystical studies.. actually A.E.Ü. and I.Ö.R. are both englobed in Cardinium Network.." thee first ov thee two pieces provided by this projekt consists ov a somber synthesizer progression, whilst thee latter piece consists ov delayed shimmering cymbal crashing repetitiously before slowly decaying..

Nux Vomica [Alan Herrick, Jenny Liang Herrick, & Evan Sorstein] "Experimental music project from San-Francisco, active since 1990.. their music encompasses a large range of styles (industrial, ambient, noise, & ethnic) and compositional techniques (found sounds, processing, electronics, & live instruments).. it's members established and ran the SF experimental music store and label Auricular Records in San Francisco during the early 1990s. throughout their career they have collaborated with many other musicians, generally from thee Bay Area. though relatively inactive since the late 1990s, Nux Vomica began performing live again in 2007.." thee piece which they provide here: Eruption In Form consists ov slow repetitious eruptions ov sound..

Enema & Gejonte tis thee projekt ov artists Jonas Ohlsson & Kai Parviainen [Commando Laarz, En Halvkokt I Folie, Enema Syringe, Perfektemanskropp..] who both hail from thee Netherlands.. thee piece they provide features twinkly synthesizer material with effected and undiscernable [to me] masculine vocalisations..

Subliminale tis another projekt ov Italian artist Gianluigi Russolo [Therabaqud Leic] which provides here a piece ov trancing concussive percussive blasts entitled: A-Test-Azione..

non-attainment ov information related to thee projekt Rashid Al Taliq [other than an apprearance on an Insane Music compilation..] thee piece offered here: Hommage À Bafomet tis an almost loungy piece ov experimental sonorism with amazing Italian vocal incantations and throbbing house-like sequencing!! throw in some great restrained synth lines, flute, and field recordings ov animals, military exercises, air-raid sirens, and effing shite am in LOVE with this rather strange piece that feels as though it would have belonged to some Bava-esque Giallo masterpiece!!

Disumana Res tis thee astonishing projekt ov Guglielmo Lanzilli whose Biotope Art Organization released this astonishing document ov ritual industrial elektronikx!! ov note: it was he who provided thee cover scan featured in this article, and who as it tis understood will be providing many more ov thee missing pieces in uncovering some ov thee mysterious workx ov this most magnificent label ov his!! thee piece which he provides: La Festa Degli Eccessi [party of the excess] consists ov brilliantly dark ambiance with vocal chanting and rather interesting sound collage ov field recorded materials!!

THB tis another mysterious [to me anyhow] projekt whose only other appearance which has been found here was on a compilation on thee Nihilistic Recordings cassette label run by Peter Zincken (Odal) during thee eighties.. thee piece provided here tis a splendid composition ov ambiance and suspensefull string materials!!

"Crash Worship's live shows were infamous for their unrivalled chaos and unlimited celebration.. led by a strong trio of drummers, the band creates an atmosphere of bacchanalia.. their recordings explore different aspects of rhythm and psychedelia.. Crash Worship sometimes appears with ADRV appended to their name, meaning Adoration De Rotura Violenta ("Crash Worship" in Spanish).." thee piece which they provided fo this compilation tis entitled: Nacimiento Sanore (Blut Geburt) and consists ov intriguiing ambiance, ritual percussions, and later in thee piece: eruptions ov bestial growlings!!

Prozess are yet another projekt with next to nil for information attainable other than that they released a cpl ov cassettes on thee Austrian Art Brut label arround thee late 80's.. thee piece which they offer here consists ov ethereal ambiance with both maculine and feminine subdued choral-esque vocals..

Hailing from Treviso, Italy Officina Magnetica Antonbrega "one man band of genuine experimental, straight industrial music , formed mainly from the Italian Luigi Russolo.. thee concept tis thee research and thee usage ov electro-acoustic and concrete sounds filed under the industrial music concept and inspired to thee themes ov thee Futurism artistic movement.. thee factory tis identified as a place where rhythms and workers' jobs can be read as Music so this futuristic vision humanizes the working/factory habitat.. sounds ov factory as belts, chains of assemblage, drones are meant to be as soundscapes.. some sounds are real, others sampled and sequenced creating a great suggestive cold, abstract atmosphere.. this theme and mission are the side effects of living near a factory, just where Luigi Russolo lives.." thee sonorism which Russolo offers tis cold scathing machinic cybernetic organism-esque feedback thriving monstrousness..

Sol Niger were an astonishing Portuguese occult elektronikx projekt whose works appeared on thee mysterious Putrefactio label!! thee darkly illuminating manifestation which they conjure here consists ov slow ambient tidal-esque movements and undulations ov indecipherable repetitive feminine vocalisations whose cessation occurs abruptly with a feminine scream ov horror!!

following this abrupt ending; tis thee presence ov thee scathing feedback blasts ov Italian artist Stefano Biasin [Teatrino Della Volpe, S. Biasin Trio, Teatro Satanico!!] harsh vocalisations hide behind thee throbbing esoteric industrial elektronikx!!

Archon Satani provide another piece here ov haunting ritual ambiance with sparse reverberating percussive slams and demonic vocalisations!!

Order 1968 tis thee projekt ov Italian ritual elektronikx artist Claudio Dondo which later became well known as Runes Order!! thee piece provided here tis magnificent restrained synthesizer with sparse choral samples resonating as thee swell ov synth material surges towards brilliant plateaus ov climaxing elation!!

Aktive Stagnation was thee projekt ov German artists Maria Zerfall, Rastlos, and Sorath.. thee piece which they concoct tis one ov gloomy skittering elektronikx and dissonant elektrik stringed feedback worshipping pulsating flux!!
