Hold hands and take a journey into loneliness and despair. We have all been there, we just put the soundtrack together to your terror. Welcome to a place of warmth and tears.


[a short one for being sold out – at least the tape-edition of this remarkable live registration – yet still worth being promoted anyhow, and in support of / respect for Thomas]


Eternity is but an instant

T x R x P aka Trepaneringsritualen, the main outfit of Thomas Ekelund, do not need any extended introduction, so I won’t delve too deep into this great project’s past. I will go to the content immediately.


The word ‘holotrop’ is Greek and means something like exerting yourself towards fullness. The project which this review deals with, took this name from the main member’s inspiration by a psychologist from Czechia, who developed the ‘holotropic breathing method’, which might guide you to reach a stronger, more focused level of the conscious state of mind.

Michael Idehall

For about a decade, Swedish sound artist Michael Idehall creates a very own-faced form of Industrial under his own name. before, he was active under different pseudonyms too, but as Michael Idehall, this guy from Gothenburg is the most successful one. He always ‘tries towards manifesting an opening to a world beyond mundane. The creative process involves honing in on the nexuses between the flows of mind, matter and spirit. Nexuses which exist inside the human being, but also in the outer world, as conglomerations of energy and matter.

Sanctum (live-1)

I will review two live registrations for Swedish act Sanctum, both being released via Raubbau. In a couple of days / weeks / millennia it will be a review on their performance on CBGB, but this review deals with their co-operation on the famous Maschinenfest happening in Oberhausen (Germany) on October 10th 2015. In 2004, Sanctum was part of the Maschinenfest line-up as well.


I admit that I easily refer to defunct Cold Meat Industry when talking about the glorious days of Industrial (that specific scene in a very wide and general sense), even though back then there were lots of other superb labels existing as well - nowadays it’s even getting better, again and again, yet still, the heritage... The ‘cult’ status remains, for ever.

Geneviève Pasquier

After quite a long period of silence, Geneviève Pasquier returns with a ‘new’ recording, including older live material as bonus. Last decade she did release some highly acclaimed albums, especially via Ant-Zen or UMB (the latter being run by herself and Thorofon / The Musick Wreckers colleague Anton Knilpert (nowadays known as Dan Courtman, if I’m not mistaken).
