Tam Quam Tabula Rasa ‎– Noxia Blandimenta

Summer has come, soon the air will be filled with mucus filing pollen, and I’m cooked up in an office with lots of free time. What better way to pass the time than to do some delightful Discogs archaeology!

I started off with looking at the discography of some good old fashioned industrial tape labels, since it’s been a while I enjoyed some harsh rhythmic melodies. I got caught up with the Insane Music label and their myriad of compilation tapes. Some really fantastic stuff there, and I noticed Kopfschmerztablette, a classic and favorite industrial bands of mine. But hey, what is this release, Objekt Zwei Oder Einfahrt Freihalten? Haven’t seen that one before, and the label, ZNS Tapes? A short-lived, German, tape label from the late 80’s – early 90’s, with a focus on abstract, experimental, industrial, music. And their entire back catalog is available online? Now were talking!

Organisation Calvaire – Impardonnable | Urbansvart – Translucide

Impardonnable

Alright, before I scramble together a list of the best whatever albums of last year, let’s take a quick little listen to two French black/prog? metal project I’ve been meaning to have written about quite a while back. Organisation Calvaire and Urbansvart by Kalvr!

By the way, what was the deal with 2015? For some reason I’ve never put any mind to the year albums were released last year so I can barely remember any released in 2015… I know it’s been a good year for experimental music, but it feels like nothing was released. But, maybe I’ve just gotten a brain tumor and had a music memory lapse.  Forget it, let’s listen to Diapsiqui- I mean Organisation Calvaire!

Ak’chamel, The Giver of Illness – Foreskin of Enlightenment

Foreskin of Enlightenment

The sun is setting, the snow is laying thick and white on the ground outside, a fresh pot of coffee is brewed. The only thing left is some mood music… The new Boduf Songs album; too clean. Blut Aus Nord; too energetic. 396 Mountains; now we’re getting somewhere. Ak’chamel; perfect!

Vivenza – Réalités Servo Mécaniques

VIVENZA

” This evolution of music is parallel to the multiplication of machines, which everywhere are collaborating with man. Not only amid the clamor of the metropolis, but also in the countryside, which until yesterday was normally silent, in our time the machine has created such a variety and such combinations of noises that pure sound, in its slightness and monotony, no longer arouses any feeling.”

– The Art of Noises, Luigi Russolo

Ryan Garbes – Shit Education

shit education

Time for something a little less pretentious and somewhat more musically interesting; time for some experimental, psychedelic, art, noise rock.
What?! Don’t give me that look, I’m totally cereal, guise! Come on!

JUTE GYTE/VENOWL – Split cassette

BH7893

Alright, guess it is time to try and get a hold of the immensely weird, esoteric, avant-garde, mess that is Jute Gyte. Dissonant melodies, disharmonious rhythms and an overall discordant sound is probably the easiest and most straightforward way of trying to explain that which can not be described. Yet underneath all this hobbled mess of frequencies there is still a fun and playful sound that is truly unique for Jute Gyte. I have heard my fair share of various avant-garde, experimental, esoteric, and overall weird metal, but never have I come across something this dense and varied as the works of Jute Gyte; with a quite large and prolific discography that jumps from slow, discordant guitar lamentations, to weird experimental black metal, to just straight up harsh noise, you can never be sure what you’re going to get with him, except for something bizarre and unique.
