[Music] Sshe Retina Stimulants – Play Cronaca Nera

This release by Sshe Retina Stimulants is one of the most claustrophobic works I’ve heard in some time.  This is noise, but done with a way that makes the experience almost magical.  I had the feeling of falling down an endless rabbit hole a la Alice in Wonderland.  It’s a harrowing release, and one of […]

[Music] Rauppwar & Sir Edgar Carpenter – Reptilian Abnormalities

Though this is nowhere near easy listening, this collaboration between Brazil’s Rauppwar and Mexico’s Sir Edward Carpenter don’t make mere noise – they add a rather cosmic, psychedelic element to it. Not for the faint of heart, but rewarding in its own way. It was released by Cian Orbe, out of Santiago, Chile.

[Music] Destruktionsanstalt – Cerebrum Daemonia

Our friends Destruktionsanstalt make their fourth appearance on the blog with one of the most brutal post-Industrial music releases I’ve heard in a while.  Per Najbjerg Odderskov is one of the few composers working in this genre who understand the original Industrial music ethos thoroughly, and it shows in his (very brutal) work.

[Music] Wirephobia – Kurdistan

Kudos to Wirephobia, an experimental/noise project based out of Erbil, Kurdistan in Iraq, for doing their part in developing a local noise music scene in what one could imagine is a hostile area.

[Music] Z’ev – Live in Iceland

We lost another legend today. Percussionist Stefan Weisser, known to his fans and colleagues as Z’ev, passed on today at the age of 66. He left a body of work so important in experimental music that I expect tributes to pour out for days (including this one from our pals in Lithuania, Radikaliai!). This free […]

[Music] Various Artists – This Is Darkness: Vol​.​1 Dark Ambient

This Is Darkness is a website based out of Baltimore, Maryland, in the United States which is dedicated to promoting dark ambient music. This is their first in what we hope to be are a long series of compilations dedicated to the promotion of the best of bleak music. Such names as Xerxes The Dark, […]

[Music] Sonologyst – Silencers – The Conspiracy Theory Dossiers

Sonologyst is no stranger to this blog. Raffaele Pezzella, Mr. Sonologyst himself, brings a new release (also available on vinyl!) of dark ambient inspired by conspiracy theories. If Alex Jones were an ambient composer… oh, just kidding.  He has a far more serious interest, and you can either read more about it at the Bandcamp […]
