FINAL SOLUTION were a power electronics group from NYC. they existed in the early 90s and created some of the most raw and intense power electronics ever. they could be compared to great white death era whitehouse, but they really emit a hard new york ugliness that only an american born group could bring. final solution are one of my all time favorite acts. here is the complete discography save some comp tracks. enjoy.

Sleep Chamber - Sexmagick Ritual

Its hard to find any recording whose strange, dark and frankly demonic amospheres compare to Sleep Chamber's 'Sex Magick Ritual'. This album is a work of dark art.

So damn hard to find due to its limited release and its quite obvious uncommercial appeal, it remains one of those must have collectors pieces. Shame this sort of stuff doesnt attract a larger audience because I think this stuff deserves wider exposure. Really very talented stuff.

I don't know the set list as I am not versed in the Deutsch Nepal discography. If someone wants to give it to me I would be grateful.

THE MOON LAY HIDDEN BENATH A CLOUD (all discography and book)

I think all of you that come the R.N. know this amazing project, they are one of my favourite bands of all time, like Dead Can Dance and Muslimgauze. I decide to post all the records here on R.N., this posts were on the other blog that im a contributor "The Rosemary Locale" (music blog that i dont post anything along time ago...), but i think they fit very well here, so i tranfer them to R.N. Behind the original records that i have, in this same post you find the book with all music letters created by Alzbeth. I know that its easy to find some of TMLHBAC records on the blogger world, and i also know that allmust that what you find was taken from my posts on The Rosemary Locale :P

"The Moon lay hidden beneath a Cloud (TMLHBAC) was an Austrian musical duo composed of Albin Julius ( Der Blutharsch). and Alzbeth. Their music reflected their deep fascination with myriad aspects of European medievalism including ritual, clerical chants and the daily experience of the peasantry.Their music combined modern electronics, tape loops and samplers with medieval instruments such as the shawm, hurdy gurdy, and Hexenscheit. Alzbeth was the primary vocalist for the group and often sang traditional songs in numerous archaic languages including Middle High German, Latin and Old French. Julius provided distorted and backup vocals."

The project name describe a phenomenon that occur in every place on earth, its a real situation that we can present. This situation provoke different reactions and experiences on people. Some feel exalted others stronger, free, depressed or puzzled with the scenery. But all feel noble with the phenomenon. The TMLHBAC music must be feel by the listener in personal way, This is the reason why they never put names on tracks and label their music, the space is open to fantasy…
Becouse the tracks are untitled, i will only say how mutch them are in ich record.The music was released on their own Arthur's Round Table record label and distributed by World Serpent Distribution.

Alzbeth presents - The Book of Lyrics (2000)

The book included lyrics, photographs and references for the historical themes used by the band.

Hard-backed, cloth-bound book. Limited to 777 copies


L.A.A. - Mass for the Dead [2002] DCD

L.A.A. was the Pre - The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud project,” Mass for the Dead" is a 2 x CD, Unofficial Release recorded on 1990-91. The first CD is studio material, thus rather clear sounding, whereas the second CD contains tape recordings done during sessions; the sound quality is very poor and the tracks are more or less identical to those on the first CD. Limited edition of 500 copies.

CD1 - VII tracks

CD2 - V tracks


The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud (1993)

This was the first official record from TMLHBAC.

“ On the begin Arthur was transported to Avalon. Bloody bells and drums mourn over is leaving. Meanwhile in the Round Table swords were raise on silence. In the woods an orgiastic dance was performed around the incandescent fire. Gloomy dances with fairys that mixed with the bewitch virgins by the immortal dragons. Lancelot notice from the mist…”

Words translated from the interview to TMLHBAC ,on the defunct Portuguese Azorean zine “Crepusculi Aurora” issue #1, 1998 (you find here on R.N.)

-X tracks


Amara Tanta Tyri...(1994)

“ Skeletons dance trough the marching sound of the pagan warriors. Two faces, Albin and Alzbeth. An austrian scream by the night. Few words…the mystery persist. Names don’t exist and aren’t foreboding. Denominations don’t exist too, only to not capture the imagination and limit the evasion.The laceration emotions only stay. Despite the unknown sound, something is familiar, like it always exist in us studded on our chest.”
Words translated from the interview to TMLHBAC ,on the defunct Portuguese Azorean zine “Crepusculi Aurora” issue #1, 1998 (you find here on R.N.)

Second Album of TMLHBAC, the one with more Medieval influences. This is the re-issue which came in a jewel case with A.R.T., World Serpent and WKN contact information.

-XXIII tracks


A New Soldier Follows The Path Of A New King (1995)

I like all records from TMLHBAC but this one is very special for me, becouse was my first approach to their sound, i perfectly remember the story behind this one. I was in school and one of my friends that in that time listen some stuff in Gothic Ethereal and DarkWave field, had visit a music store in Lisbon called "Symbiose" and he take to me their catologue, and in all that they have there was a very strange name that catch my attention, and when he had back to the store i had tell him to buy that one, and when i listening that, i think to my self "what the f.... is this? its AMAZING :) so from that time im a big "fan" of the band :)

" The castle ruins continue cursed.Black words of victory are now listen. A new order emerge from the silence. The standards where risen to the wind on the proclamation of heretic rites. Meanwhile, the intense and painful fog proceed. Angels chants invade our body,that is tortured on the front of our eyes. Alzebeth voice invoke the eternal blood...the Graal search is incessant and obsessive, like the religion images. Cristh is again crucify by the Alzbeth chant, with the sounds of Julius and words of Crowley, that are reveal by the moon and the sounding fog. Tradicional melodies drag appear to is own slow agonizing decomposition.The holy nation is involve by a atmosphere were scottish sounds and movie pictures by Kenneth Branagh, mix up on a spiral to the final battle."

Words translated from the interview to TMLHBAC ,on the defunct Portuguese Azorean zine “Crepusculi Aurora” issue #1, 1998 (you find here on R.N.)

Third Album of TMLHBAC, The first pressing is a limited edition folded cardboard sleeve with A.R.T. and World Serpent contact information. Later re-issues came in a jewel case with A.R.T., World Serpent and WKN contact information.

-XX tracks


Kostnice (1996, Vinyl 7")

Kostnice was recorded at the ossuary of Köstel Vsech svatých (All Saints' Church) in Bohemia.It has to be said that the music on this live recording is a bit thin and the sound quality does not compare with the studio-recorded CDs.
Issued in a limited edition of 222 numbered copies. Packaged in a paper similar to parchment-style and sealed with wax seals.

- II tracks


A Night In Fear (Split cd with DEUTSCH NEPAL) (1996)

A Night In Fear (1996 ART 8) is a joint production of the Moon lay hidden and their good friend, Lina of Deutsch Nepal. This is not a split CD but a close collaboration between the two parties, creating a neo-folk/ritual-industrial hybrid which is more than the sum of its parts. The CD cover appears to feature some jolly huntsmen, but in usual minimalist Moon style other details are marked by their absence.
Released in a jewel case with textured paper.

- III tracks


The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath A Cloud & Hybryds - Madhr (1996, vinyl 7'')

This 7" was originally ment to be givin away at the 1996 concert of both groups at a church in Weißenburg, Germany. Although due to unacceptable restrictions from the Weißenburg Church Council, the concert was cancelled, and the 7" was made available through Arthur's Round Table. Initially ment as a split release by the two bands, it later evolved into a collaboration as each band "finished" the tracks of the other artist. Limited edition released in a sleeve with an embossed Algiz rune.

- IV tracks


Were You of Silver, Were You of Gold (1996)

"Were you of silver, Were you of gold" (1996 ART 6) contains eight tracks which were specially written and recorded for the Dutch Radio 3/VPRO show 'Grand Disco Classique' and first broadcast in October 1995. This will also was issued in a limited (to 500) vinyl edition with an extra track.The theme reflects their "inner conflict" with the bloody history of Yugoslavia and its style is very Balkan indeed.

- VIII tracks


Yndalongg (1996, Vinyl, 10")

Yndalongg containing unreleased tracks, all recorded at Little Saxam Church, Suffolk
The A side is more typical of the duo's normal style,first track concerns the heinous 'Children's Crusade' of 1212 in which corrupt merchants traded on Christian zeal to transport thousands of children from Marseilles to Alexandria where they were sold into slavery. The song has a strong melody line, clever counterpoising of Elisabeth's two vocal tracks. The second track appears to be a thematic sequel.
The B side has a laid-back, ambient-industrial instrumental which is very like some Nurse With Wound.
Yndalongg is a 10" and comes in a grey sleeve with a grey poster featuring the group's logo. Limited edition to 555 copies.

- III tracks


S/T (1997, 7")

Vinyl, 7", Picture Disc, Single One-sided picture disc, Limited numbered edition of 222 copies.

- II tracks


The Smell Of Blood But Victory (1997, Box Set)

The definitive work of The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath A Cloud. Symphonic strata of orchestral samples, beating martial rhythms and haunting chants evocate a very frightening vision of war and destruction. Track 02 is the one which will be reworked and used by Albin Julius with his solo project Der Blutharsch as the famous "God Punish England". CD 2 includes one of the best tracks ever by the band: it is about the madness of nazi SS commander Heinrich Himmler and the music is a powerful Wagnerian orchestration which would be worth of the best Laibach and Autopsia. The final track is a beautiful 14 minutes loops created using a sample from Prokofiev's "Alexander Nievski".

<----cd1 - XVIII tracks

cd2 -VI tracks ---->

Double CD box including poster. Limited edition 2000 copies.


Rest On Your Arms Reversed (1999)

Another great record with a collection of all material on limited releases, all bonus tracks, compilations and unreleased material.

- XVII tracks

Sunn O))) – Monoliths & Dimensions

a better link:


God has a face, and it looks like Kevin Martin. Although the band so named has had a fairly stable multi-member lineup, it is just one of many outlets for this British noise technician’s twisted creativity. Working at a point where hardcore, experimental jazz and electronic music can be made to meet, Martin’s God mines a vein similar to the likes of Scorn, Naked City, Godflesh and some of Bill Laswell’s more abrasive undertakings. – Trouser Press

MySpace Page

Free jazz/metal unit God was initially a project of UK musician Kevin Martin in which he shared duties with Shane Rogan, but by the time the band was finished in the mid 90s, it also included numerous other members. Martin started God when E. Mark Smith from Fall contacted him in the late 80s and asked for a submission for a compilation Disparate Cogscienti, which Smith wanted to release via his label Cog Sinister.

In the 80s, the band had no formal line-up and no particular style and it wasn’t until Martin met Justin Broadrick (Napalm Death, Godflesh) that the band released their debut. 1990 “Breach Birth ” EP came out on Situation Two Records and was produced by Broadrick. “Possession” LP followed two years later.

Beach Birth - 1990

Beach Birth - 1990

Trouser Press described “Breach Birth” as “a screeching, fiercely distorted deconstruction of metal that remains the most “rock” thing Martin has ever released.” “Possession” was described them as being “similar, but with almost symphonically bombastic production not unlike mid-period Swans;” and a “turbulent and confrontational live outing.”

Further on, the band produced two more LPs – 1993 “Consumed” and 1994 “The Anatomy Of Addiction”, as well as “Appeal To Human Greed” EP, which included remixes of band’s material recorded by the likes of Kevin Shields, Justin Broadrick and Bill Laswell.

All Music Guide pointed out that despite Justin Broadrick contribution to “Anatomy Of Addiction” the album is no ” Godflesh redux, since Martin’s own particular style remains intact.” Further on, they commented that “squalling sax breaks and contributions mix with his extreme, echoed shouts, but he does also throw in more growling, low-end singing. Mixed with the crisp, industrial strength (and sometimes styled) beats from (Scott) Kiehl and (Lou) Ciccotelli, which are generally arranged as tight, focused rhythms and pumped up at high volume, it makes for a fine new avenue for God to explore.”

Outside of God, band members were also involved in numerous other projects – Martin and Broadrick played together as Techno Animal until 2004, while Ice included Broadrick, Martin, Alex Buess and Lou Cicotelli from God, as well as Dave Cochrane (Head Of David, Greymachine, Jesu) and Joe Jobaggy (Terminal Cheesecake) in its line-up.

Ok I realize that this is the second post in a row featuring Justin Broadrick. But don't take me for a fanboy or anything, Jesu is for hipsterfaggots going "lolol true drone/industrial" when they're actually just listening to his pop albums.

Anyway, this album is a nice experimental mix of free jazz styled wind instruments meets cold, pale music such as industrial metal (though it doesn't feel very metal at all).

God - Loco

Conceived in 1987 by saxophonist and prolific experimentalist Kevin Martin with guitarist Shane Rogan, although without a formal line-up until after their 1990 debut EP "Breach Birth." Numerous releases by the congealed nine-piece over the next four years explored dark fusions of punk, industrial, electro, free jazz and ambient dub.
This release was recorded live at St. Mary's Church, and features Justin Broadrick (Godflesh) playing guitar, who then went on to produced the record as well.

God - Anatomy of Addiction

"Anatomy of Addiction, the second God studio album, turned out to be the last, but it made for a good way for the band to go. Instead of continuing the previous releases' exploration into open-ended group jams, this time around God -- with a mostly unchanged line-up, interestingly enough -- focused much more (if not entirely) on brusque, heavy-duty techno metal with some free jazz touches. It's clear that Broadrick had a much greater say in the album this time out, especially with his massive, clipped riffing, but one or two songs aside (check "White Pimp Cut Up") it's not Godflesh redux, since Martin's own particular style remains intact. Squalling sax breaks and contributions mix with his extreme, echoed shouts, but he does also throw in more growling, low-end singing. Mixed with the crisp, industrial strength (and sometimes styled) beats from Kiehl and Ciccotelli, which are generally arranged as tight, focused rhythms and pumped up at high volume, it makes for a fine new avenue for God to explore. Where Anatomy resembles Possession the most, it ends up taking some interesting chances, like the droning sax start of "Lazarus" or the notably slower paced "Bloodstream," which actually also has one of the brightest, gentlest breaks ever in a God song (kudos to Kiehl's enjoyable percussion). In terms of overall sonic impact, though, it's hard to complain, and certainly Anatomy's not a commercial album by any standard. Martin's new emphasis on lyrics that are at points perfectly understandable certainly makes things a touch more accessible, but only just, while the blasting rhythms and feedback remain the undeniable center of attention. The addition of electric viola and, via guest performer Alex Buess, bass clarinet adds even more roiling chaos to Anatomy, and the album as a whole is a fantastic listen. " - Ned Raggett

'Stay tuned, because this is the heaviness of Godflesh'....
This was the introduction to 'Avalanche Master' on WCVT 89.7fm (Towson) one night back in 1990 on the weekly Industrial/Electronic show. Heaviness is an understatement. This is more like being run over *slowly* by a gigantic tractor trailer. Bonecrushing.

Godflesh - Live - Schorndorf - 03-31-90the

Label: Bootleg
Year: 1990

Here is a Godflesh bootleg that seems to be one of the very few floating around the interwebs, that I've ever noticed anyway. The sound quality is pretty good, not pristine mind you, there are some overblown moments, but you can easily make out all the vocals, instrumentation, etc. I'd rate it an A-
I don't really feel the need to "explain" Godflesh, because we're all pretty much in agreement that they are one of the cornerstones of contemporary heavy music right? We can all agree that they were an ominous steamroller that devastated the listener through unrelenting precision, volume, and intensity right? And it seems that we can also agree that the band was the "total package" in that they had that presence most bands aren't committed to, the one that cloaks the group in a real and metaphorical dark haze, few photos exist, few interviews were conducted, and the band didn't really tour that much. Plus they predated the internet (at least the internet we now know) so if you wanted to know about them you had to dig real couldn't Google "Godflesh" and get their discography to pop up. I guess what I mean is that the band existing within an aura of mystery, and that simply heightened the excitement of any Godflesh news.
Listen to this recording very loud and with the lights out. Also, punch yourself in the face every three minutes or so for full effect.


Godflesh - Streetcleaner

This album can be summed up fairly simply: Heavy, mid paced industrial guitar riffs with super low bass that locks in perfectly with the drum machines, with some desperate, massive vocals roared by Broadrick. There's the occaisonal moments where thing will drop out, to give your ears some respite (The heavily treated guitar intro in Mighty Truck Krusher ) Still, as far as I can tell, Godflesh tried to write the heaviest, darkest industrial record they could, and they succeeded. The drums are huge and fit the sound so well.. Sometimes they're upfront, like the pulverising Pulp, sometimes they're a long way in the background, but for the most part, they are shattering and splintering eardrums. The guitars sound very heavy throughout the whole album, especcially in the superb Christbait Rising, and in the awesome Head Dirt. Whether they're playing super low riffs, or providing a backdrop for the bass and drums, the guitar demand to be noticed.
