BACK WITH A BANG...
Apologies for the extended absence. Trying to get life organized and posting more often. We launch back into things with a few minutes of unrelenting Harsh Noise Wall from The Rita. This is a 2006 7" release. One track on each side. No letting up.

IS MAN THE DISEASE OR IS MAN DISEASED......
Todays offering is LEBENSFADEN'S 'Die Vollendente Schonheit- Eight Portraits of Dearest Deformations Caused By Disease' on the always great Lust Vessel out of Japan. Based on the collection Epicure by Dr Ikkaku Ochi. An hour of industrial drones & septic odes with contaminated analog synths. This is an impenetrable look at the ugliness that sometimes invades the ugly. Bleak stuff.
DIE VOLLENDENTE SCHONHEIT
Never Dedicated To Patients But Their Wounds And Diseases.

FACE TO FACE WITH PARANOIA...
Another 7" release from another long-running German act - Haus Arafna. Prime cuts from the "Angst Pop" duo. Dark material. Side A is about as punishing as it gets. The 2 tracks on the B-Side are more mellow on the surface, but don't get lulled into a false sense of security.
"In Dreams...You're Mine"
The faithful will be rewarded.

THE WARNING WAS POSTED - THE ANGEL OF DEATH IS AT HAND...
Today we present another offering from the year 1995. This is a 7" release from the long-running UK harsh electronics artist Con-Dom. One assault on each side. The first track is an all-out attack of harsh feedback and repetitive barked denunciations. The flipside is a more of a rhythmic affair, but still extremely intense and punishing. Everything one could hope for.

A SMALL TASTE OF THE ORIENT...
The slab up for offer today is a 1995 cut from Japanese "hard noise" group Incapacitants. Roughly 12 minutes of high-intensity, high-frequency feedback assault. Unrelenting.
Of note: the cover is a cut-up of labels of Spirytus Rektyfikowany - the 190-proof "rectified spirit" popular in Poland and consumed by the hardest-drinking degenerate types you find lurking in the corners and bus shelters of Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
We recommend that you pour your drink of choice and SPECULATE on this record on this cold winter day.

AMES SANGLANTES 'L'Existence Des Existences' Tape
Ames Sanglantes is the moniker under which Pierre-Marc Tremblay airs his lone musical grievances. You know him from Akitsa. You now him from Contrepoison. Two songs here. Both powerful. Side A is an ethereal landscape in the trenchs of yesterday. Side B is more poignant. A 9 minute journey of self-realizations and a rallying call to raise the banners! Fantastic stuff, everything this guy does, fantastic.
