Like many Moloch-releases (a couple of hundreds), Verwüstung too has been re-released, re-re-released and re-re-re-rereleasedreleasedrereleased several times before. Actually, I wrote a review for this specific album, one of the CD-editions, for the re-release on Hidden Marly Production – see update June 7th 2015.
Fuck You And Your Eyes was the first release on Skullhouse, one of the sub-labels of Legs Akimbo. This label focuses on Grind / Noise / Speedcore / Splatter beauty, and in the near future a couple of other reviews will pass… But first things first, and that’s this tape by UK-based act Spastic Burn Victim.
Singapore-based act Battlestorm, with Nocturnized members (PS: soon I will come back to a split-LP which includes Nocturnized), were formed about a decade ago. After some demos and a split with Damned Eternal, the band released the full length Demonic Incursion via Japanese Deathrash Armageddon, which sort of was a (relative) break-through for the band on international scale.
Bokluk are a Spanish Death Metal formation, nowadays consisting of Alex (vocals), Corey (drums), Iago (bass, vocals) and Tukas (guitars, as well as recording, mix and mastering).
The Black Metal oriented sub-label of Legs Akimbo, Locust Amber Records, focuses on tape-releases especially, and one of them is the split-tape Odyssey Of The Twelfth Talisman, not the cartoon, yet a recording done by London-based acts Dgorath and Dark Ritual. Both of them are quite young bands that recorded their material in 2014 and 2015.
One of the many splits with Ukraine’s Moloch is the one with Swiss act Voidstar. Initially their collaboration saw the light in early 2015 via Nocebo Records (digital and vinyl), and Legs Akimbo’s sub-label Locust Amber Records did take care of the tape-re-issue, though this one being limited to an edition of fifty two (52) copies only, half of them released on grey cassettes, the other half on brown ones.
Death Carnival Records are a Noise / Drone / Industrial / Ambient label from Nice, France, nowadays acting under the wings of Arsenic Solaris (cf. Arthur Arsenne and his multiple outfits). Most releases are done on tape-edition, and since I did receive a handful of them, you can expect quite some reviews on these creations as from now on. Stay alert!
Remains are quite a young Mexican project, formed in 2011 by Miguel Angel (joined then, or afterwards, by colleagues from e.g. Anoxia, BIID, Fractal Entropy etc.). After some demonstrational material, there was a first full length release in 2014, called Angels Burned, and now Miguel returns with a new effort, called Evoking Darkness.
One of the most productive musical projects, as you surely know, might be Ukraine’s Moloch, an outfit by Sergiy Fjordsson, who also runs Depressive Illusions Records (+ some sub-labels), and who acts in a couple of other outfits.
Locust Amber Records are a sub-division of Legs Akimbo, but both rosters differ a lot from each other. While the parent label focuses on Noise / Breakcore / Grind stuff especially, Locust Amber Records has been created to support the Black Metal scene especially, especially via the promotion on (limited) tape editions. This review is the first one in a row of more than ten tapes that will be reviewed and uploaded in the near future.
