Zeni Geva & Steve Albini
Maximum Implosion

This release by Zeni Geva (the noise rock band led by KK Null) and Steve Albini (producer extraordinaire and Big Black / Shellac main bastard) gathers up all their collaborations from over the years, with material including 1992 live tracks and tracks from the rare Superunit release. Comprehensive and also crushingly heavy double CD set.

Anni Hogan
Lost In Blue

A star-studded and aptly titled new album of forlorn songs by Anni Hogan (AEAEA, Attrition, Marc and the Mambas and many others.) Hogan’s enthusiasm for collaboration has surely led to lots of friendships over the years, which may explain the incendiary team she’s put together for this one. There’s Lydia Lunch, ex-Kraftwerk Wolfgang Flür, Kid Congo Powers, Scarlet West - to name just a few.

Coil / Zos Kia / Marc Almond
How To Destroy Angels

A Coil rarity for you here coming courtesy of Cold Spring (Merzbow, Psychic TV). This recording, dating to a gallery performance in 1983, is markedly different from the similarly-titled EP that Coil issued the following year. With the group at this point consisting of Marc Almond, John Gosling and of course John Balance, they construct a twenty-plus minute piece from spoken word and industrial noise. Gosling’s Zos Kia project provides a remix. Closing track ‘Baptism of Fire’ is an unreleased ZK/Coil collaboration recorded in the same year.

Merzbow / Genesis Breyer P-Orridge
A Perfect Pain

Here’s a twentieth anniversary reissue of this collaboration between two heavyweights of subversive and challenging music, Gristle Throbber Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Japanese curator of cacophony Merzbow. Genesis lend obscure and absorbing spoken-word, around which Merz builds engrossing and intense textures.

Corrupted
Felicific Algorithim

Japanese doom metal destructors Corrupted present a 12” of their particular form of sludged-out distorted crush music, featuring that little bit more feedback than your average doom crew. Felicific Algorithm is designed to be played at any speed on your turntable, giving you, in a sense, twice as many tracks to enjoy! On Cold Spring.

Barry Adamson + Pan Sonic + The Hafler Trio
The Hymn Of The 7th Illusion


Krzysztof Penderecki
Kosmogonia

The Shining, The Exorcist, Children Of Men, and Shutter Island are just some of the films that used Krzysztof Penderecki's uniquely unsettling music. His iconic compositions are brimming with cold, unrelenting fear… so.. Enjoy… Made available for the first time since 1974, it’s first time on CD, and remastered on Cold Spring.

Psychic TV
Kondole / Dead Cat

This box set contains David Lewis’ obscure film Dead Cat on DVD, featuring Genesis P-Orridge and Derek Jarman. The CDs contain the sparse, eerie soundtrack in both full length and edited versions. Also included is Thee Whale, the tribal percussion-driven score to an abandoned short film, and a third track, Thee Shadow Creatures. All were recorded on the 23rd of January, in the years 1988, 1989 and 1993 respectively.

Coil / Nine Inch Nails

Common Eider, King Eider
Shrines For The Unwanted, Respite For The Cast Aside

Recorded across four evenings of ritual and chant, Shrines for The Unwanted, Respite For The Cast Aside is a dark concoction of threatening and primal ambience. Common Eider, King Eider are Rob Fisk of Deerhoof and Andee Connors, the boss of aQuarius. The 4 tracks across this CD are drawn-out drones of ancient times and ancient rituals.  

Various
Visions Of Darkness (In Iranian Contemporary Music)

I’m buying this one for the title alone. Visions of Darkness (In Iranian Contemporary Music) gathers together a collection of drone, noise and dark ambient music from Iran across 2 CDs. Within Iran’s recent history is a period of cultural repression including the outright ban of music creation and of owning so-called Western musical instruments like the guitar. To gather these rebellious, challenging tracks together is a feat in its own right.

Trepaneringsritualen
Perfection & Permanence

Exploring the themes of religion, magic and all things metaphysical comes Trepaneringsritualen (good luck pronouncing that to your friends) and their record entitled Perfection & Permanence. The image of Jesus Christ as album art sort of gives you an insight into what to expect lyrically in this release. Available on limited blood red coloured Vinyl LP repress on Cols Spring. 

Coil / Current 93 / Foetus / Test Dept.
The Sound Of Progress

This is The Sound Of Progress circa 1988, as expressed by extreme and experimental artists like Coil, Current 93, Test Dept. and Foetus. Performance footage, interview footage, and footage of these chirpy fellows hanging out is all included on what appears to be the first proper DVD release of this documentary (first broadcast on Dutch TV). DVD with booklet.

Penny Rimbaud's Kernschmelze II
Cantata For Improvised Voice

Extreme electronics sourced purely from vocal sounds from Eve Libertine and Penny Rimbaud from CRASS. Sparse and vulnerable poetics have been processed to create an intense and highly charged work which questions the notions of what music can be and where it could go in future. Still pushing the envelope this lot.  

Dave Ball • Jon Savage
Photosynthesis

Dave Ball (formerly of Soft Cell) worked with Jon Savage and a wide range of synthesisers to create Photosynthesis, a sound suite inspired by nature’s power. Please note however that this music as as much about melody as it is pure texture: some parts sound quasi-orchestral. CD release on Cold Spring.

Skullflower
The Spirals Of Great Harm

‘Nectar and Venom’ for dinner again? My favourite. This nice fold-out Digipak shows the harsh noise duo at their most obtuse and confrontational. Melodies and textures bubble under a surface of distortion in a manner that recalls the more into-the-abyss ends of Hospital Productions or Posh Isolation.

Zos Kia / Coil
Transparent

Stark, minimal and grating industrial, from three defining players - John Gosling, John Balance and Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson. Originally released in 1983 only on cassette, then reissued, but edited by Coil years later. These are the full length unedited recordings, and also have two unreleased tracks from Zos Kia’s previous incarnation AKE.

Merzbow & Balázs Pándi
Live At FAC251

Live At FAC251 is just what it claims to be: a document of the recent live performance there by mighty Merzbow himself, playing with regular recent partner in crime Balászs Pándi, whose fierce blast-beats give the massive noise-sheets a real sense of drive. Edition of 500 CDs in a straightforward sleeve (here’s what the venue looked like!), on Cold Spring.

Sun Ra | Merzbow
Strange City

Avant-garde music lovers from all over the spectrum will raise their eyebrows at this record: Merzbow and Sun Ra are two of the most prolific sound-weirdos out there, but this is the first time their paths have crossed. Of course, Sun Ra returned to Saturn decades ago, but Masami Akita got his hands on some unheard Ra recordings and fed them through his Merz-blender. The results make for a Strange City indeed.

Penny Rimbaud’s L’Académie Des Vanités
Yes Sir, The Truth Of Revolution

During the political unrest of the Faulklands conflict, 1982's 'Yes sir, I will' by Crass was as hard-hitting as they come. Writer Penny Rimbaud re-imaged the piece for Blackpool's Rebellion Festival thirty years later, taking the original sentiment and applying it to the current political climate. The recording features some of the leading names in London's jazz scene. Available on CD.

Khost [Deconstructed and Reconstructed by] Godflesh
Needles Into The Ground

Khost’s album Corrosive Shroud was pretty brutal to begin with, it must be said, but that didn’t stop them from letting Justin K Broadrick of Godflesh have a go at it, leaving several tracks even more cranked-up and angry than before. Needles Into The Ground [Deconstructed and Reconstructed by] Godflesh is a harsh blackened-blast of a listen and no mistake.

Hijokaidan
Emergency Stairway To Heaven

Absolute-ultimate Japanese mega-kings of noise Hijokaidan have a new record out on Cold Spring, and it is pressed to vinyl picture disc no less! So you can gaze on Mikawa’s electronics as you spin these entirely out-there noise jams of the group in ‘rock-band’ format. Studio recordings, limited to 750 copies only.

Skullflower
Draconis

Matthew Bower has been evil for a minute or two, traceable in the lineage of British noise and power electronics as a shadowy figure with a guitar, lots of pedals and a dedication to changing minds and shattering ears. His Skullflower project has concentrated more on the industrial side of things, while retaining a natural beauty you won't find in much other work like this. On 'Draconis', he's joined by Samantha Davis, and together they take what's pretty in the world and drown it in white noise.

Machinefabriek
Veldwerk

Master of drones and estranged found sounds Machinefabriek continues to set scenes and then abstract them to the point of no return. Veldwerk offers recordings inspired by Yan Jin, another member of the global field recordings family known for his aptitude for outdoor sonic collages.

Iron Fist Of The Sun
We Can Yield Our Own Footseps

Iron Fist Of The Sun flaunts his power violence / electronics with this new album, We Can Yield Our Own Footsteps. Chilly synths, untraceable clicks and pops, and of course the genre favourite of indecipherably distorted screamed vocals! Six tracks of harsh action, or seven on the CD edition. From Cold Spring.

Psychic TV
Themes

Here is a nice looking box set of all the Themes albums by PSYCHIC TV, all at once in a splendid looking matt laminate box. A collection of archive and rare tracks from Genesis P Orridge's long running outfit. Comes complete with a bonus disc, the glamorous sounding offering Live in Basildon.

Merzbow
Nezumimochi

Those nasty types over at Cold Spring Records have managed to turn out a full 200 releases over the years, and to celebrate, the King of Noise himself, Mr Merzbow, has provided them with the 90+ minutes of his patented brand. Pressed (with different tracklistings) to both LP and CD, Nezumimochi is guaranteed to satisfy.

AX
Metal Forest

AX is one of bass player Anthony Di Franco’s many musical projects. On Metal Forest Di Franco pulls no punches in its attempt to create symphonic feedback and dark soundscapes. This CD gathers together tracks from the renowned but long-deleted vinyl output of the 1990s. Di Franco is known for his work with Ethnic Acid, Ramleh, Novatron, JFK and Skullflower.

Scott Miller / Lee Camfield / Merzbow
No Closure

King Masami Akita (aka Merzbow) hangs out with Sutekh Hexen dudes Scott Miller and Lee Camfield and this is the result. Miller and Camfield quite sensibly leave the bulk of the noise to the Merz-man, instead laying down rhythms and instrumentally bits. I thought the interplay really worked out here. Good record.

John Barleycorn Reborn: Dark Britannica

Metal/doom/neofolk connoisseurs Burning World Records have waxed up this 2CD compilation from 2007 for the discerning vinyl heads. Originally curated for Cold Spring by Mark Coyle, the 4LP box set reissue contains a booklet elaborating on the theme and concepts of the project. That is, the grimmer and seedier side of Britain’s folklore, rendered in neofolk by 33 various artists (Sol Invictus, The Owl Service, Clive Powell et al). Step aside, Richard Dawson!
