TASUKETEKUN: Electrical Lessons CDr Obfuscated Records

I kinda figured what this would sound like before I pressed play. Infinitely hard to review, this kind of Power Electronics requires a set mind frame to soak up the varying levels of pulsating destruction and to the casual listener this would be something to abhor. Continue reading

Review: Josh Lay/Crown of Bone – This is a Tourniquet of the Light, The Black Obituary CD

OR4_cover Just noticed a new review on one of releases from early last year. We still have a few copies of this left so don’t miss your chance to this up.

Josh Lay/Crown of Bone – This is a Tourniquet of the Light, The Black Obituary CD – Obfuscated Records

High contrast abstract artwork adorns the face of this release and it’s a good indication of the bleak sounds that lurk within. This is a split release with one long track from each artist. Continue reading

Release: Sky Burial – Pas The Sarvering Gallack Seas and Flaming Nebyul Eye – or27

PTSGSAFNE_zps589d2c7bJust in time for the Summer Solstice! “Pas The Sarvering Gallack Seas And Flaming Nebyul Eye” takes its name from a line in the Russell Hoban novel “Riddley Walker” set in a dystopian U.K.. This release returns to the longer track style of previous SB releases while continuing to develop upon the sound and compositional style explored on last year’s “There I Saw The Grey Wolf Gaping”. This cd features guest appearances by piper Craig McFarlane, Nigel Ayers (Nocturnal Emissions), Finnish multi-instrumentalist Pentti Dassum, John Balestreri (Slogun/Self), Andrew Grant (The Vomit Arsonist) and Stargazer’s Assistant.

Release: Wilt / En Nihil – Psychic Constellation – or31

WILT_ENNIHIL_COVERPsychic Constellation, where does it reside? What does it mean? It is the zone deep within our sub-conscious where emotions and memories swirl about. Draping over stone facades of psychology and mirroring deep into the pool of the dream state. The realm of dreams, nightmares and the physical aspects of night terrors. We see each night the effect of ourselves manifesting into the abstract.

Release: GRODOCK CD2 Verwerfungen – or21

or21Quaking, roaring and dominating sound constellations of Grodock. this Industrial/Ambient project was created in 2009 and originates from Freiburg (Germany). Manipulated samples paired with waves of synthetic noise drones and atmospheric shreds of everyday sounds form the basis of this release. The Tracks on “CD2 – Verwerfungen” reflect the wide bandwidth of the music project and were carefully and sequentially constructed.

CROWN OF BONE & WILT – NEUROSIS OF ENTHRALLMENT (CDR by Obfuscated Records)
Two solo pieces here by each band/person/project and then a lengthy collaborative piece. I don’t think I heard of Crown Of Bone before, but this kind of loud, unrelentness (harsh) noise (wall) is not so much my cup of tea. Continue reading

Review: Circuit Wound – Patience Wears Thin – or17

or17

Circuit Wound waits and waits for the listener to slip into a comatose state expecting the drone to continue on, and then hits with a relentless assault. The layering of the cacophony, too, is some of the better harsh noise I’ve heard.
