cory strand - memento (totality).



Cory Strand - Memento (Totality)

1. Memento (Totality)




ask and ye shall receive.

cory strand's "totality" reinterpretation of memento is just as dark, labyrinthine, and despairing as the film itself.

and it gives me the urge to remix the video to go along with the destructive audio...maybe someday.

I don't know how or why copies are still available, but grab one now.

it's an essential companion to what is still, in my opinion, christopher nolan's crowning achievement.

cory's also been uploading a lot of material to bandcamp lately, so grab some of that stuff, too.

finally, sorry for the split...download all three .rar files and then unpack.

orgy of carrion - hymns of melancholic violence and plague.



Orgy Of Carrion - Hymns Of Melancholic Violence And Plague

9:10

1. I
2. II
3. III



of the myriad bands to come out of defiled light (all of which are absolutely fantastic, in case you're unaware), orgy of carrion has been my favorite by a long shot.

this compilation from altare productions collects material from six different releases before adding these tracks, from an unreleased demo, on at the end.

most of this material is available online, so instead of ripping the entire thing, I'm only posting these last three tracks.

two tracks of scathing black metal and one track of ambience.

do yourself (and the band) a favor and pick up the remainder of the material on bandcamp. it's all there and it's absolutely outstanding.

I can't recommend it highly enough.

copies of this handsomely-packaged double cassette compilation are available from the label.

and buy stuff from defiled light while you're at it.

Un Regard Froid - Devoir.Génétique.Violence.Hiérarchie

20:50

38.7 MB

1. Devoir
2. Génétique
3. Violence
4. Hiérarchie




power electronics of the highest order from un regard froid, courtesy of NSN.

searing tones and brutal textures, all over far too soon...looking forward to more from this project.

past releases are available via the artist's bandcamp.

great packaging on this one, too...large clamshell case, inserts, and a patch.

another worthy addition to the NSN catalog, and the next batch can't come soon enough.




(buy this [and more] from NSN.)

v. sinclair - metamorphosis.



V. Sinclair - Metamorphosis

1:01:21

116.56 MB

1. Defined By It's Presence Or Absence/Silhouette
2. Indéterminé
3. A Rope Taught With Considerable Weight
4. The Shoulder Is Constrained Within It's Form
5. The Small Of His Back




fantastic drones in a fantastic package from valentine sinclair and his clandestine compositions label.

incredibly refined, minimal, and well-designed.

some of his work has been a little too minimal for me, but this one is just right.

between this and the ligature release from earlier this year, clandestine compositions is really hitting a stride.

this isn't sold out yet, so buy this one...plus all of the other releases.




(buy a copy from the label.)

Assassani - Daemonical Raw Tech Invocation

19:50

37.76 MB

1. I Can See The Whole Ibiza Bvrning And Thee Corpses In Flames Dancing
2. Como Alambre De Espinas Y Meo Napalm




the title pretty much says it all - very raw, noisy, and demonic techno, courtesy of fallow field.

kind of like a slightly more unhinged, maniacal, and destructive vatican shadow.

I haven't heard any of the artist's other works, but a couple of recent recordings are available on bandcamp.

1. The Rita - Untitled
2. Mania - Untitled
3. Mania - Untitled



new cassette reissue of a CD-R from 2006 courtesy of bacteria field.

there's a wall from sam mckinlay on the first side and some harsh power electronics from mania on the other, including one track that wasn't on the original version.

much like everything else from bacteria field, this one is sold out, but there are two copies on discogs as of this writing.

NSN.




I've long been a supporter of everything that NSN puts out, and after a lengthy hiatus, the label is finally back with two new tapes, along with a release party early next week.

the first is "hymnes à la déroute," from trup.

raw, scathing black metal, and it's really great.

the album is available on bandcamp, but obviously I highly recommend and encourage you to buy the physical version.

the second is "devoir. génétique. violence. hiérarchie," from un regard froid.

brutal power electronics.

a video preview of one track is available here:




it is awesome, both sonically and visually.

and if you're in montreal on 5/31, swing by the release party, have a few beers, and meet the artists.

bottom line: buy these tapes as soon as they're available.
