Vorare – The Drainage Rituals (Dark Industrial Auricular Violation)

Vorare – The Drainage Rituals (Dark Industrial Auricular Violation)

  Another late entry into the review pile be this one, which I only decided to cover because I so rarely get good experimental stuff. Hell, I can’t even remember the last time I received any at all! But, anyway, what makes good experimental good? It’s rather simple, but perhaps we should start with what […]

AlNamrood – Worship the Degenerate (Saudi Folk Black Metal Cool)

  You’ve probably heard all the legends, so I won’t even bother starting there. Yes, this is that Saudi black metal band with folkish elements. And yes they’re probably the most recognized band from their country, which reputedly wants to kill them for even existing. I’ve sampled their work before, but honestly, though I enjoyed […]

Burning Psalms – A Layer of Repugnance Protects My Wounds. (Sadboi Suicide Ambient Noise)

  I hate how I have to actively search this shit out. Why are noise, ambient, and so forth artists and labels so bad at promotion?! Anyway, I got lucky on this one on two counts. One, not released yet. Two, the label head is cool and responded in a reasonable far quicker than the […]

NERATERRÆ – The Substance of Perception (Almost Pretentious Dark Ambient)

  I feel bad for how late this review is, but it’s totally not my fault. One, I typically never check for promos on the Facebook page, and two, Facebook tossed this in spam. So old why review? The fact is it’s rare I receive submissions like this that I feel like reviewing, because dark […]

Klara Lewis – Too

Sketches. Incomplete ideas of pictures yet to be formed. Idle lines on paper connected in moments of inspiration, never fully developed. Most of us are just sketches. Fragmented, splintered, incomplete representations of human beings, but yet we constantly hide this fact. We hide ourselves behind images that best represent our thoughts and shapes, and we […]

Stuzha – Butugichag

Perfect timing for this, what with all of the cold creeping in and killing everything.  Today the temperature dropped low enough to freeze puddles, and the pleasant sound of fracturing earth was welcome, but still, it’s not cold enough.  We need cold that anything living dreads, cold you can feel in your bone marrow.  Stop […]

BLACK YO)))GA – Asanas Ritual, Vol. 1

So it has been a bit, eh?  Now that the seasons are getting colder, I’m growing more and more Minnesotan in my Seattle landscape in order to best combat the troubles ahead.  Yesterday I chose not to wear any normal clothing and wore traditional Minnesotan garb of fur pelts from animals and consumed the beating […]

Yen Pox – Between the Horizon and the Abyss

We’ve been on board with Malignant Records for a long time now.  What started as a partial zine project many years ago eventually went on to become one of the modern powerhouses behind death industrial, noise, ambient, and all of those moldering genres we enjoy so much around here.  So yeah, we’ve known about them […]

Isolator – Culture & Principal of Anti​-​Human Exaltation

Loneliness, crushing loneliness.  If you’re not feeling that right now, stop right here, go no further.  For this is the kind of thing you can experience in only one context; in the middle of wretched solitude.  No feeling, numb, cold, and in complete darkness.  Without these elements you’ll completely misunderstand everything about this album.  There […]

DEATHSTENCH/Trepaneringsritualen: Split LP

In the world of darkness, there are a few labels that reign supreme that we see around here frequently.  One of those, Malignant Records, has sent us recently several cool pieces, including our first vinyl promo for the new hardcopy address.  And here it is.  First off, nothing beats a picture disc with cool artwork, […]
