Artaud Assemblage by Port of the Sun

Soundtrack to the newly deceased being baptized in the river Styx, while living shamen ply those waters on rafts of mirrors; to worms carving slow-motion tunnelways through the subworld, leaving porous three-dimensional sigils in their wakes. Ode to pillars of flame burning upward and columns of rain pouring down, contradictory elemental verticalities. To drear post-plague years when locust husks are all you get for dinner.

Il Gabinetto Del Dottor Caligari - 2 x cs - Psychotic Release

perchance as Thomas Ligotti has inferred- horreur fiction tis thee conspiracy against the human race.. here tis an intriguing homage to horror fictionz ov times past from times now passed as well.. Il Gabinetto Del Dottor Caligari [named for thee German expresionist film Das Cabinet des Dr Caligari] was thee projekt ov Dr. Caligari aka Valerio Biagi who likely hailed from somewhere within thee shadows ov Italy.. referrences mentioned within include Renee Viven, Bram Stoker, Mary Shelley, Edgar {Allan) Poe!! both cassettes were released upon Emanuele Lago's astonishingly disturbed Psychotic Release label!! both La Bianca Bara Del Dolore and Lapide Bianca, Fredda Dimora are included in one rip which your fumbling presenteur erroneously inverted chronologically.. as for thee musiques: am not incredibly astute toward trends within Italian pop sensibilities, but imagine Alberto Camerini with macabre gothique sensibilities and organ creep instead ov arpeggiations.. thee track titles are worthy ov translation:

l`untore = the person who put the creams/oils on the dead bodies
lapide bianca, fredda dimora = white tombstone, cold abode
le 7 ferite nel cuore = the 7 wounds in the heart
la bianca bara del dolore = the white coffin of the pain
tetra poesia = gloomy poetry
le bambole della signora Beccamorti = the dolls of the Mrs Beccamorti
[note - Beccamorti tis used as a surname, but it means literally to peck at the dead]
lo scavafosse = the person who digs the holes for the graves

for your listening bemusement!!

THE GREY WOLVES-legion of hell(c60-Strengh recordings-uk-198x)

Here is a short presentation- as I am expecting that the followers of this blog will already be rather familiar with this project; since it is a rather famous one. The Grey Wolves first appeared back in 1983 after being born out of the ashes of a unit called OFI (Opera for Infantry). their music is often labelled as “death industrial” and their name associated with others such as Nurse with Wound and Ramleh. The two members (Dave Padbury and Trevor Ward) have been often controversial and outspoken, and have taken part in a prolific ammount of different projects, and as well have released many productions. They spread their messages across utilising different medias:(pamphlets, mail art, manifestos), and have taken part fully within the cassette scene since back in it's early days. In fact both members have thier own tape labels (Open Wound and Sol Niger) focusing on industrial music. The year of release of this tape isn`t listed anywhere; however I do believe that it came out towards the end of the 80s, and it was distributed by Strength Recordings in the UK and by Ministry of Ultramarine Theatres in Italy. As for the music; far away from the power-electronics assault that made them famous; this tape is instead crafted with esoteric elctronicks messages and sequencings . ”Legion of hell’ stands as a manifesto of the experimental dark-ambient music of that era.

Track listing:

a01-lost souls
a02-hall of the dead
a03-for good or evil-new spirit rising
a04-angels of darkness
b01-eternal suffering

telepherique-alltag(c60-red neon tapes-belgium-1991)

"The project Telepherique began in 1989 with the intention to explore processes and working with people of different cultures. They started with mail-art projects, co-operations, and communication with people all over the world. Basically, Telepherique is Klaus, Danijela and Rene Jochim, from Würzburg, Germany, but there were others that became members of Telepherique, because of the massive collaborations and projects: Ulf Harr, Echart Seilacher, Harry Lüftl, Stefan Au, Stefan Alt and Karin... The name Telepherique is the french word for funicular railway. This name was chosen because of the intention gaining a view from a higher level."

this marvelous cassette ov rhythmic industrial was released circa 1991 upon thee Red Neon Tapes label which was run by Patrick Parent in Belgium!! it also features source materials provided by Parents' projekt Etat Des Stocks!! for this release a description tis rather simple: fantastic effing experimental elektronikx with exceedingly on-point restrained rhythmic sequencing!!

Track listing:

A1 Alltag Des Leidenden
A2 Monotonie Im Haushalt
A3 Bernfswelt
A4 Briefträger
A5 Fernfahrer
A6 Schule
B1 Sonntägsmesse
B2 Modells
B3 Rampenlicht

va - Italy - [Harsh Reality Music - 1989]

another astounding release in thee international series ov thee Memphis, Tennessee-based industrial/experimental/electronic label Harsh Reality Music which was run by Chris Phinney [Mental Anguish, Ambient Complot, Cancerous Growth, Mid-Cult Matrix, Skoptzies, Swine Is Mental, Viktimized Karcass].. this time all artists essentially hailed from thee boot-shaped nation ov Italy!! again this cs as well many other fine releases are still available via thee labels' site!! effing great that they keep available such an astonishing back catalog ov sonorous treasures!!

note: due to thee size- this comp was broken into two parts here & here..

Subliminale tis thee projekt ov Gianluigi Russolo who tis also thee creative genius behind such magnificent projekts as Therabaqud Leic, Wellenwerkmann Neurosonological Research Station, and S. Biasin Trio!! also very much worthy ov note tis thee remix which he provided for thee esoteric body music projekt Metal Music Machine!! thee eery piece which he provides here consists ov scathing yet subdued power elektronikx scapes!!

Stefano Barban was behind such effing magnificent esoteric elektronikx projekts as Abra Had Abra, Ambulatorio Segreto, Lvnvs, and Spin Box!! thee piece which he manifests here utilises an odd cacophanous barrage ov dissonant synthesizer werkx..

Teatrino Della Volpe tis thee work ov thee magnificent mad-genius Stefano Biasin!! thee piece "new industrial" which he provides here combines strange loops ov minimal industrial sequencing elements with tribal samplings, odd disco materials, bizarre saxophone wails, out ov place rock segments.. all very disjointed and seemingly spontaneous.. feels like the maximum sample time tis about eight seconds..

Crime O Nautix provide thee piece Rock The Mussolinis Boys which consists ov slowed plodding dissonances with hilarious grimey rocking vocalisations and wierd utterances as thee parodied atrophy ov rock snarlingly progresses!!

Majorana was thee projekt ov Lussetti Guido.. thee first ov his tracks provided here consists ov rhythmic sequences interspersed with sparse somber synthesizer segments and polyphonic drum machine barrages..

"Das Synthetische Mischgewebe [Isabelle Chemin & Guido Hübner] started in the early 80's in Berlin with electronic, industrial, avant-garde associated cassette releases." they appear on both thee Spanish as well as Italian international series.. thee piece which they manifest here consists ov wierd machinic junk-noize-esque disquietudes..

apparent lack ov biography here for Black Flowers.. their sonorism utilizes interesting pulsating synth with quiet rhythm sequencing and reverberating vocal materials which transition later towards a more spaced out and dissonant sort ov elektronikx scape..

Crime O Nautix utilise for their piece some sort ov sitar and tabla filled Indian pop musique over which they incant oddly subsumed vocalisations before eventually transitioning towards a more psychedelically reverberating guitar outro sektion..

Womb are semi-mysterious here- though it tis believed that DeviLs G [Teatro Satanico!!] had his hands at play in thee esoteric sonorism which they manifest.. distant choral samples play amidst indecipherable vocals and a growing unease ov atmosphere looms over whilst skittering elektronikx reverberate amidst synthesizer werkx which make intriguing presences which together increase in their scathingness as thee piece develops further towards a more rhythmic pulsating bombast!!

for thee concluding piece Majorana utilises operatic vocal loops with haphazardous sequencings and thee dissonant tumult ov collage werkx.. odd experimentations..

Track listing:

A1 Subliminale – Thee Vittoz Method
A2 Stefano Barban – Amantide
A3 Teatrino Della Volpe – New Industrial
A4 Crime O Nautix – Rock The Mussolinis Boys
A5 Majorana – L'Anti-Destin
B1 Das Synthetische Mischgewebe – At My Throne & Under Your Shoes
B2 Black Flowers – In The Mind / Fire Eyes
B3 Crime O Nautix – Der Telephon Ringelte
B4 Womb – Frequency Modulation / No Noise Abortion
B5 Majorana – Fai 400 Respiri Prima Di Un Gran Balzo In Avanti

va - Spain [Harsh Reality Music - 1989]

Nota: dedicado con mucho respeto y admiración a Spain Pain!!

released in 1989 on thee Memphis, Tennessee-based industrial/experimental/electronic label Harsh Reality Music which was run by Chris Phinney [Mental Anguish, Ambient Complot, Cancerous Growth, Mid-Cult Matrix, Skoptzies, Swine Is Mental, Viktimized Karcass] this release was part ov thee label's international series.. though this tis a rip ov an olde cs- this and many other astonishing releases are still kept available from their site!! as thee title may suggest: all artists hailed from Spain..

Merz was thee projekt ov Madrid based artist Luis Mesa who tis listed as contact for all three ov thee projekts on side a here; as well as having been a part ov: Recursos Ajenos, Ambient Complot, & Merzan / Zanmerz!! thee source ov inspiration for thee opening piece should require no introduction for fans ov Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic.. thee track consists ov repetitive minimal synth lines with mid-tempo drum sequencing and additional elektronik experimentation..

for thee projekt Tecnica Material; Luis Mesa tis joined by Miguel A. Ruiz [Exhaustor, Funeral Souvenir, Orfeon Gagarin, Ventral Metaphor, Ambulatorio Segreto, Efficient Refineries, Non Sterile]!! thee track which they produce consists ov astonishing concussive rhythmic sequencing filtered in an effing stomping manner which degenerates into much more raucous tumult at it's point ov cessation!!

once more behind thee elektronikx Luis Mesa operates under thee moniker Alquimia Detras in a strange rhythmic experimental piece with what sound to be religiously related sample sources- a child's prayer and miscelaneous radio evangelists..

providing the entire second side ov thee cassette are Das Synthetische Mischgewebe who were comprised ov members Isabelle Chemin & Guido Hübner!! their back catalog ov releases tis tremendous.. thee piece abandons thee rhythmic sequencing which manifested so heavilly upon thee first side in favor ov a much more cacophanous onslaught ov dissonant experimentation..

Track listing:

A1 Merz – Texas Chainsaw Massacre
A2 Tecnica Material – Adsorcion
A3 Alquimia Detras – Religiones
B1 Das Synthetische Mischgewebe – The Eternal Professional Error At Auto-Reverse
