La Sonorité Jaune – Soundtrack For Breathing Structures / Parallel Soundtracks

La Sonorité Jaune

Dark and dreary atmosphere, slow menacing drones, inhuman and industrial sounds, and an ending of madness and depravity… This is my sonic safe space!

X A M B U C A – カムィ & уничтожение

уничтожение

уничтожение

Here’s an interesting little project that arrived in my inbox a couple of weeks ago. A part of a series of ambient electronics that aims to educate people of different cultures and tries to break down some of the ignorance borders between cultures and people. A very nice and noble concept that I’m all for and which I could see leading to very interesting collaborations and unique sounds.

Too bad уничтожение and カムィ  falls a bit flat and feels rather mediocre…

Sunwølf – Beholden to Nothing and No One

Beholden93/23

At the time of writing, the new noise festival Röset is premiering at the small farm of Svartmyra in the darkest Småländska forests, and unfortunately I am not able to attend the two day noise-fest… Really wished I was able to attend it, but as always, it was just a bit too far away and if I made my way there I wouldn’t be able to pick up any nifty swag. Shame to miss some of the biggest artists in the local scene, like TREPANERINGSRITUALEN, Händer Som Vårdar, Ochu, Alfarmania, and Deutsch Nepal. But they’ll probably show up somewhere else, and I guess it’s not so bad, I’m not a big consert/festival goer. Most shows I go to, I end up feeling like crap and tired for the next couple of days, but it would have been nice to support the local scene and chat with them.

At least I got to see Death in June in Stockholm, I was also close to seeing Chelsea Wolfe and Russian Circles, but they were on the other side of the country at the time I was seeing Death in June. Speaking of bands that have toured with Chelsea Wolfe

Golden Fawn – Danger Fawn Femur

Golden Fawn93

Heeeey everybody! Do you like fawns? Do you also like gold? Why not combine those and get a Golden Fawn?! All the joy and grace of a tender fawn grazing in a dew covered meadow, with the splendor and status of gold! It may be a hassle to care for and the insurance payment is through the roof, but at least you can boast to your friends that you own a ethereal singing Golden Fawn and a swanky leather pouch! Golden Fawn! You could do worse!

Sorc’henn & L’Acéphale – Will of the Abyss

UNI05_Front93

Will of the Abyss is the fifth release by Union Finale and so far every release by them has been gold, but surely not every thing they distribute can be great, right? Every label has their share of mediocre releases right?

40 min later…

Sigh… You know, this isn’t fair for the other labels trying to make themselves heard when Union Finale has all the good stuff…

Synsophony – Karmic Existence

Synsophony93

“Drawing on a diversity of influences, Synsophony are not scared to betray their love of music of all types – from metal to electronica to classical – in an effort to make music that is as psychedelic as it is terrifying. Stick on your headphones, crank up the bass and volume, and enjoy!”

dusa – Segermännen

dusa - Segermännen93

“Kammarorgeln klingar sorgset i den arla snålblåsten. Ovan hällslänten i den gryningsbleka glesan stämmer felorna upp, bygdefolket flockas runt blotkasen. Muntra lynnen sorlar, rök driver svart. Alla tystnade med en ens, när de anlände till bålet; de tre männen av Segerhuva. Hädangång, limbo och strävsam mullbörd ur det öde slättlandet följer. Nytt liv i ny skapelse.”
