[A dark ritual project, playing eerie and haunting industrial ambient music with a satanic background, obsessive percussions and frightening demonic voices. The original line-up consisted of Tomas Pettersson 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 project Inanna. Highly recommended.]

Les Joyaux De La Princesse - Aux Petits Enfants De France


The wonderful first release from one of my favorite artists of all time. Les Joyaux De La Princesse is Erik Konofal. Each of his releases present an exhaustively-researched historical point of interest, always dealing with the state of Europe (and France in particular) in the era building up to and during World War II. It's difficult to pidgeonhole him into a particular genre, but industrial is the one most commonly associated with him. His compositions range from droning industrial landscapes to mournful organ dirges, often sampling archival vocal songs and speeches from his era of interest.

This is a remastered version of his first release, which was limited to 49 cassette copies in packaging which set the tone for what would be a trend of lavish presentation: a wooden, coffin-shaped box with several postcard inserts and a sheaf of wheat.

Blackhouse - Five Minutes After I Die

Blackhouse are an oddity in the Industrial scene, because their music features Christian themes and lyrics! The duo of Ivo Cutler & Sterling Cross come from the heart of Mormon country, Salt Lake City, and have baffled the scene since they began opposing the libertine power electronics of Whitehouse with their Bible-obsessed messages. Unlike bland Xian pop, Blackhouse preach the good word over the wicked sounds of raw beats and harsh electronix. They see no contradiction in their art, because as they say: "There is no war more holy than the fight for peace."I always thought they were just being cheeky. I appreciate the underlying sickness of religion, so I don't frown upon mocking it, and thought Blackhouse was the same.

Current 93 - Live At Bar Maldoror (1986)

Remenisent of "Dogs Blood Rising" (an OUTSTANDING LP) only stretched out a bit. Actually, if it wasn't for the length of the original two tracks featured here, I think that this release would be fine. But as one reviewer said, you can pretty much here a 1 minute stretch of "Only Shadows Of Hooks" and you pretty much have heard all 21 minutes of it. Thankfully, included in this package are 2 bonus tracks also from the same era."Live At Bar Maldoror" was originally released on Mi-Mort records in 1986. Appearing on this recording was David Tibet, Steven Stapleton, John Murphy, John Balance, John Fothergill. This particular version is the 1990 reissue which featured bonus material.Christ's First Howling and Fields Of Rape are taken from the NER compilation album "From Torture To Conscience".When is a door not a door? When it's a ducasse!

Zero Kama - The Secret Eye Of L.A.Y.L.A.H.

Zero Kama was a ritual experimental project of Michael DeWitt the founder of Nekrophile Records.. This is a awesome record and one of my favorites on Nekrophile Records.
"All instruments to be heard on this album were exclusively made from human bones and skulls by the hand of Zero Kama. They never have been used since the time of its recording, which took place at the Secret Temple of Laylah from 5th to 28th of May 1984 . Remixed at Psychonaut Studio Vienna in November 1987, and dedicated to the symbol of Laylah, meaning night and death, as well as to its numerical equivalent, Oz, a goat or unrestrained sexual force of creation, thus showing the identity of the basic two opposite forces in this generous universe of beauty and strength, in which the Lovers my find ecstasy in Pan. Who wishes to enter this world of darkness, in which the Great Goat dwelleth, may pass through the sigil of Oz given at the front of this Cover.
"The Secret Eye Of L.A.Y.L.A.H. was original released on tape in 1984 by Nekrophile Records (NRC 07). Rereleased on lp in 1988 by Permis De Construire (PER 009) and on cd by the same label in 1991 (PER 023).
This is the lp version.

The Grey Wolves - Where Darkness Reigns

The Grey Wolves are Dave Padbury and Trevor Ward. They exist since the early '80s and have released a lot of tapes via their label Anal Probe, which later split into Artaman and Zeal SS, the latter changed it's name quite often and is nowadays Open Wound. In 1992 they were contacted by Tesco Organisation and recorded their first LP. Their art is definied as "A Manifestation Of The Cultural Terrorism Network", and their packages and visuals are collages of disturbing and provocative images, photos and symbols. The Grey Wolves play heavy industrial noise with a genuine punk attitude, being irriverent and nasty, but never lacking self-irony.

Label:Open wound

Test Dept - European Network (tape, V2, 1986)

Test Department at their peak, as far as I think. They played The Netherlands in november 1985 and both Staalplaat and V2 wanted to release this on cassette. V2 'won' the bidding war, perhaps because their recording (back then to a 'hi-fi stereo video') or the more art-presence of V2? I don't know, but this is an excellent live recording and quite a popular cassette release in the 80s, alsodue to the fact that it came in a nice black carton box. You'll find also scans of the various inserts, which may have been only part of the first edition.enjoy

Hunting Lodge - Night From Night 7"

Back in April mutantsounds posted the Exhumed cassette, and that's what gave me the idea to pull out my old vinyl, first up is Hunting lodge's first 7". Night From Night was released in Dec. 1983. The title track is a slow rather lo-fi rhythmic piece with the title repeated over and over. The b-side is an untitled track that sounds like Hunting Lodge's attempt at kodo. For more info go check out the Exhumed post, mutantsounds posted an entire biography with interviews and such. i suck at these writeups.

Today's post is the very first 12'' single by classic French coldwave band Norma Loy, one of the first bands of the genre, and one of the few to get significant exposure outside of their home country. Though original members Usher and Chelsea first met and collaborated in 1977, Norma Loy properly formed in 1981, dubbed so by Alan Vega of Suicide. Heavily drawing on the intensity of post-punk, the cold buzzing synths of wave, and the theatrics of performance art, the band released several singles and full lengths with various lineups before disbanding in 1993. Usher and Chelsea continued their collaborations sporadically while each explored solo projects and various other art experiments in alternate mediums. In the meanwhile, the band's influence grew, as several compilations and reissues sprung up from the band's ashes. After a thirteen year hiatus, Norma Loy reformed for a series of hometown shows, original members Chelsea and Usher joined by Lol (bass), Yann Reversat (guitar), Guillaume (drums), and Helene (buto dance). The band is seemingly still active, most recently appearing in Prague, yet no new material has surfaced. I've uploaded their very first release, 1983's self-titled 12'', occasionally referred to as the Romance 12''.

Without any further adieu, the details:

Dirty Rotten EP/LP is the 1983 debut release by the punk band Dirty Rotten Imbeciles. The album has a very gritty sound and is the band's only punk album without metal influence. It is considered one of the most influential hardcore albums of all time, and is also considered one of the first thrashcore albums. Originally released as a 7" Dirty Rotten EP (played at 33 RPM) with 22 songs, it sold out quickly. It was later remixed and re-released as a full album with the same 22 songs, but in a different order, and titled "Dirty Rotten LP". This album would also be combined with all four songs from their 1984 Violent Pacification EP. The Dirty Rotten LP was re-released yet again in 2003 as the Dirty Rotten CD, with 22 bonus tracks.

Vivenza - Machines (12", Musee St. Pierre, 1985)

Perhaps my final posting on the work of Vivenza, this is a rather short one, but quite nice example of his machine music. As my friend AV pointed out, the thing Vivenza didn't do was making music with recordings of machines. He made the scan of the Vivenza equipment as shown in the booklet of his V2 cassette. We can two putney at the core of his set up. Interesting. Find the picture separate from the post... The person in the picture is not Vivenza, in case you might wonder.

Esplendor Geométrico - Necrosis en la poya 7" (1981)

Estamos ante la institución del sonido industrial en España por excelencia, una banda formada por ex-miembros de Aviador Dro, quienes por diferencias musicales se marchan de este grupo para adentrarse en una propuesta más radical en el sonido (Aviador Dro estaban bastante influenciados por grupos como Kraftwerk y Devo), Esplendor Geométrico seguiría la senda trazada por los padres del industrial Throbbing Gristle y los australianos S.P.K. Tomando su nombre de un libro futurista llamado: El esplendor geométrico de la mecánica del mundo, de Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. La semilla de este proyecto estaría conformada por: Arturo Lanz, Gabriel Riaza y Juan Carlos Sastre. Este es su primer sencillo, con tres cortes bastante provocadores (sobre todo las letras en Negros hambrientos) corrosión, mucha corrosión y perturbadores ambientes maquinales.
