Vatican Shadow
Pakistan Military Academy

Dominick Fernow drapes us in his Vatican Shadow once again. Well, actually with this remastered reissue of 2011’s Pakistan Military Academy the Hospital Recordings boss takes us back to the project's early days, but this is a record so potent that it still grabs your attention almost a decade on from the first release. Running the gauntlet of dark ambient and industrial techno, Fernow’s stern assessment of the Military Industrial Complex ranks as one of the highlights of his extensive discography. Pakistan Military Academy's Muslimgauze comparisons hold.

Vatican Shadow
Byzantine Private CIA

Vatican Shadow is the techno project of American multimedia artist Dominick Fernow. Fans of his will be rejoicing in the fact that his early tapes, now just too bloody difficult to find anywhere, are now available on vinyl. Byzantine Private CIA is available as a double LP set on Hospital Productions.

Vatican Shadow / Various
Berghain 09

Dominick Fernow’s noise / music / sound journey has taken him all the way from the self-loathing feedback howls of early Prurient to compiling a mix as Vatican Shadow for Berghain, that most noted of Berlin techno institutions. A great mix of powerful bangers and gnarly noise textures, including several locked grooves on the D side of this double LP set. On Ostgut Ton.

Vatican Shadow
Rubbish Of The Floodwaters

He’s been working in this direction for a while now, but Dominick Fernow’s military-industrial-themed alias Vatican Shadow is now a certified techno project, as this new 12” is released by the Berghain kings themselves: Ostgut Ton! Rubbish Of The Floodwaters contains three broodingly intense tracks.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Venus Flytrap Exotica

Dominick Fernow (Prurient) and Phillippe Hallais (Low Jack) reunite as Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement for another cut of humid dub dread. ‘Venus Flytrap Excotica’ is aptly titled, relocating the dance-floor in the depths of the jungle, with this sense of being entwined in a mass wildlife, straying further and further outwards from civilisation.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Red Ants Genesis

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Green Graves

An entirely instrumental release from Prurient/Vatican Shadow donny-don Dominick Furnow, this new project is sparser than both. Built from a bunch of skeletal drum loops, ambient synths and the sound of forest rain, the not-doom-laden-but-definitely-uneasy feeling that permeates Green Graves recalls Actress and Demdike Stare. Not one, not two, but three vinyl.

Rainbow Mirror

New Prurient album! And boy is it a big one: Rainbow Mirror is a three-and-a-half-hour super release, currently available as a quadruple disc 8 panel digipack. It’s all fresh original material, delving into deep and quasi-ambient territory without losing the harsh edge of the Prurient project. Massive potent stuff, presented on Profound Lore.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Ambient Black Magic

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement is another project from Dominick Fernow (aka Prurient and Vatican Shadow), in which he works with deep and dark synth-dub-ambient on an epic scale, with tracks that roll onwards for half an hour or more. Ambient Black Magic is a new recording, made with the assistance of Silent Servant, and it's an epic listen. Out on Dom’s own Hospital Productions.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Taking Place In The Foyer

Another Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement reissue, remastered for transparent green vinyl by Paul Corley. Trust Prurient mastermind Dominick Fernow to suck the beauty out of New Guinea’s rainforests, instead making an exoticist study of witch hunts out of them. There’s not a bird or a singing insect to be heard here - only tense, stripped-down atmospheres; narratives of human suffering and supernatural intrigue.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Papua Land Where Spirits Still Rule

If you missed one of the original sixteen cassette copies of this album when it first came out in 2012, you’ll just have to settle for one of these transparent green vinyl reissues instead. Even noise artists tire of frowning at urban human evil all the time, so for Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement Dominick “Prurient” Fernow has a good old frown at tropical forests instead. The results are as sinister as usual, but far softer and smokier, mostly focused around uneasy atmospheres and ritualistic rhythms.

Ancient Methods & Vatican Shadow

No need to complicate things: two big fat industrial techno slammers on a 10” split, released by Hospital Records; now in their twentieth year of operation. Vatican Shadow & Ancient Methods have cultivated a reputation for delivering unforgiving b2b live/DJ sets over the last year. If you want to get in on a piece of the action from the comfort of your own home, here’s your chance. Limited to 300 copies, so hurry up!

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Jungle Black Magic and Highlands Green Sorcery

Here’s another long-awaited vinyl release -- of Jungle Black Magic -- from Dominick Fernow under his Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement alias. A substantive one -- 40+ minutes -- featuring some uncomfortably sticky moments where ghosts are pursued, through rainforests, at night. Well, somebody had to. Exotic sounds and deep rumblings ahead. Are you ready to explore the heart of darkness with Dominick? This transparent green LP is an edition of 500, on Hospital Productions. Naturally.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Fallen Leaves Camouflaged Behind Tropical Flowers

Fallen Leaves Camouflaged Behind Tropical Flowers documents six years of Dominick Fernow’s output under his long-form Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement alias. The first ever vinyl version of the Prurient man's gloom project embeds two drawn-out, grainy, doom-laden tracks inside its unwinding grooves. The once-mysterious release reveals new detail in the slow, sullen yet controlled techno textures coiled and lurking within. If you’re feeling brave. Green vinyl LP on Hospital Productions, limited to just 500 copies worldwide.

Pleasure Ground

Furious man Dominick Fernow flips a coin between techno act Vatican Shadow and his noise origin story Prurient, this time coming up heads for a record of doom influenced-dissonance under the latter moniker. Initially released in 2006 on Load, Pleasure Ground is one of the pinnacles of Prurient's attempts at mixing fragility and harsh, unforgiving noise into the same pallette -- anyone who came to know him through the double-disc opus Frozen Niagara Falls -- a glacial, dissonant synth odyssey -- will understand, though this record scales far heavier. This Hospital Productions reissue is now spread across two slabs of vinyl.

Music Of The Firewalkers (Vatican Shadow / Pete Swanson remixes)

Interesting prospects on this double 12” -- one LP contains 1979 field recordings of Greek fire-walking rituals, the other contains remixes of same by Pete Swanson (ex-Yellow Swans) and Vatican Shadow (Dom Fernow, also of Prurient). A heady mix eh? The re-workings both add heavy percussion, whipping up a dense storm of sound both old and new.

Vatican Shadow
Media In The Service Of Terror

Here he is again, scowling and angry sound manipulator Vatican Shadow (aka Dominick Fernow) with another batch of intense drills to scare you out and into the comfort of your own bed. The album steps up the energy to leave you with a head spinning selection of gruesome cuts to help contemplate life in 2016.   

Function & Vatican Shadow
Games Have Rules

Here's a collaboration between electronic big hitters Function and Vatican Shadow who have combined forces,  simultaneously stripping back each producer’s main production elements - the dancefloor-focused techno structures of Function; the experimental cassette-roots of Vatican Shadow - to create an album of dynamic electronic ambient music, equal parts rhythmic and atmospheric. 

Vatican Shadow / Cut Hands
Azar Swan Variations

Two titans of noise collide in this super limited release. Vatican Shadow (Dominick Fernow of Prurient) and Cut Hands (William Bennett of Whitehouse) showcase their respective knacks for finding melody in industrial surroundings. Out on vinyl 12" on Handmade Birds. Limited to 400 copies in poly-lined collector sleeve.
