Black Earth

A serpent crawls along the birthing womb of a nebulous sun. Labyrinths of broken mirrors trace the path to its utterly devoured glare. Endlessly superimposed patters of blazing shades that cloak the matrix of unconsciousness. Blind visions of a mutilated light. Revealed images of a chaos spawned geometry, diagrams of a hidden order.

Concrete Mascara

American act Concrete Mascara floats around for five years or so, yet despite their ‘limited’ number of years of existence, they brutally reached the top of the international Power Electronics community. Concrete Mascara’s debut Blossoms Of Shame (Corrosive Arts Records, 2014) got highly acclaimed, and now the project returns with the sophomore album Perennial Disappointment via mighty Malignant Records.

Phragments

Phragments, the main outfit of Slovakian artists Matej Gyárfáš and Nenad Branković, return with their fifth studio recording, after 2013’s New Kings And New Queens. That last one did slightly differ from the first recordings, for being less martial and orchestral in nature, yet rather Drone-oriented than before. And that indeed is sort of the direction this album goes on once again.

Shibalba

Shibalba are a Greek project with e.g. Acherontas V. Priest (known from e.g. Acherontas, Nihasa, Virus Of Koch, Acrimonious etc.) in its ranks. But despite those other projects this guy is, or was, involved with, Shibalba have nothing to do with (Black) Metal. ‘black’ is correct, ‘metal’ is not.

Analfabetism

I did never dislike the international Death Industrial scene, but it isn’t but fair to say that the Swedish scene must be one of the most convincing, influential and prominent ones. One of the (many) artists known within this specific genre is Fredrik Djurfeldt, known from the outfit Knös (with material on Malignant Records too) (or active with Electro-project Severe Illusion as well, to be correct).

Aderlating

I have to admit that I like about everything done by Dutchman Maurice ‘Mories’ de Jong. Especially his Gnaw Their Tongues solo-outfit caresses my ear drums time after time (check out the review on L’arrivée de la Terne Mort Triomphante on the update of November 26th 2010 within the ‘Archive’ section, or the one for Per Flagellum Sanguemque, Tenebras Veneramus, which was uploaded on January 6th 2013).

Abjection Ritual

In the North-West of Pennsylvania there’s a city called Erie. Erie, the word, does not differ that much from ‘eerie’, and that’s not always a coincidence. Please welcome Abjection Ritual, and take notice of the small difference in between Erie and eerie – for eerie indeed is what this Erie-based project brings!
