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 tex...view item »


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 Ma...view item »


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 r...view item »


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 en...view item »


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

This was originally released on CD way back in 2001 on Kitchen Motors / ÓMI as ‘Motorlab #3’ and has now been re-titled ‘The Hymn Of The 7th Illusion’ (i.e the title of the main track) for the new vinyl edition on Cold Spring. It’s also now credited to include The Hafler Trio...view item »


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&rsq...view item »

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, a...view item »

Coil / Nine Inch Nails
Recoiled

Here's an interesting release. It's about 40 minutes' worth of Coil remixes of Nine Inch Nails songs including a version of 'Closer' that featured in the film 'Se7en', a sticker on the cover is keen to point out. Trent Reznor is known to be a huge fan of Coil's - How To Destroy Angels was even named after their first EP - but I wasn't aw...view item »

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...view item »

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 o...view item »

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.  ...view item »

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 re...view item »

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 Isol...view item »

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 straight...view item »

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...view item »

Coil
Backwards

I have a strange relationship with the music of Coil. Some of their work I absolutely adore and is among some of my favourite music ever created. Music of unparalleled beauty. Then there’s the other side where there’s tracks I literally can’t bare to listen to, and when I do come across them I have to...view item »

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 name...view item »


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 [Deconstruct...view item »


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...view item »

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 ...view item »

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....view item »


Skitliv
Bloodletting

Where's David? Oh, there he is! He's shouting "WHO WILL DELIVER ME.. FROM MYSELF?" over and over again in a kind of collage style, introducing this single from ex-Mayhem lad and Black Metal leg-end Maniac. It's a slightly comical start (even to someone who loves some of Current 93's stuff) but things seriously pick up once the MASSIVE doomy riff...view item »

It never ceases to amaze me how prolific Rutger Zuydervelt is and yet the quality of his work is always super high quality. Joining the artist here are Richard Skelton along with Greg Haines and Anne Baker. Here Zuydervelt is in fine form creating nostalgic ambience full of grain and crackle. It sort of feels like a lost archive that's been degr...view item »

Wow, another poetic press release!
