☼ Christ On Parade – Insanity Is A Sane Reaction / Sounds Of Nature [re-issue] / Cheap, Deformed, Cassette EP

Christ On Parade was a mid-to-late '80s San Francisco East Bay political hardcore punk band, formed in 1985 by ex-members of Teenage Warning and peace-punks Treason. Their debut, "Sounds of Nature" was issued on Pusmort Records. The group featured vocalist Barrie Evans, guitarists Mike Scott and Noah Landis, bassist Malcolm Sherwood, and drummer Todd Kramer. Some members lived in the East Bay's legendary New Method Warehouse and they played shows with the Subhumans, Agnostic Front, Circle Jerks and Conflict.
They were an explicitly political band and their song "America the Myth" questioned the United States' foreign policy at the time, while they dedicated "Landlord Song" to the owner of the New Method Warehouse. With three of the members deep into skateboarding, their music was included on a compilation cassette issued by Thrasher magazine, "Thrasher Skate Rock Vol. 3". Mike Scott left the band in 1986 and was replaced by guitarist Doug Kearney, and in late 1987 bassist Ron Nichols replaced the departing Sherwood. The group officially disbanded in 1989 after touring Europe. Landis would later form Blister (also with Kearney) before joining Neurosis in the mid 1990s. Evans formed psychobilly group The Hellbillys. Mike Scott joined Arkansas ex-pats Econochrist. Nichols formed Grinch after Christ On Parade broke up. The band has recently reunited for tours in both Canada and the United States.
These guys were one of my favorites at the time! :)

☼ Killing Joke - Requiem: Live At Lokerse Festival 2003 [October 2009 re-post]

Heavy and slow, Killing Joke (at least early in their career, and then now l8r ;) was a quasi-metal band dancing to a tune of doom and gloom. They eventually became less heavy and more arty (more danceable even) but early on they made some urgent slabs of molten dynamite that oozed with the power of thick guitars, thudding drums, and over-the-top singing.
This release features recordings captured live on stage at the Lokerse Festival in the Summer of 2003.

☼ Kevin Drumm - Sheer Hellish Miasma [RE-POST REQUEST]

Avant-garde tabletop guitarist Kevin Drumm played in a handful of rock bands before relocating to Chicago in 1991. He soon began experiments with prepared guitar, applying objects including magnets, binder clips, chains, a violin bow, even toenail clippers to distort the instrument's sound. In time Drumm befriended a number of members of Chicago's growing improv community. His chameleon-like presence has been documented on a number of projects, each revealing new facets of his wide-ranging and unique talents on both guitar and electronics. He's recorded and performed with Phill Niblock, Tony Conrad, Jim O'Rourke, MIMEO, Mats Gustafsson, John Butcher, Thomas Ankersmit, Taku Sugimoto and many others. Drumm seamlessly melds the worlds of acoustic and electronic sound, occasionally teetering on the edge of silence, yet always remaining impeccably musical.

☼ C.O. Caspar - Helix Of Exist/ From The Secrecy [RE-POST REQUEST]

C.O. Caspar (*1936) lives in Berlin and in Sweden. He is a datoist, (living 'today'), author, performer, tone-worker, photocopyist, and actor. He works as a soloist, workshop organizer, actionist, and musician with sound tools as installations, with projections, and with light-art. His medium is the processing of concrete tones and noises by means of digital equipment. Sound is planned as scenaric tone and speech acts, and is spontaneously developed from the original impulses of the sounding body - also in cooperation with other players. In the first period of his artistic work, he concentrated on the verbal and visual form of his performances. In recent years, he has increasingly devoted himself to aural concepts. In addition to solo appearances, he also produces music for theater, films, exhibitions, and readings. The sounding bodies consist of industrial material such as pipes, hoses, turbines, and constructions of metal, plastic, and latex. They hang on chains and, independently and by means of manual influencing, develop vibrating and sometimes chance dynamics in accordance with the qualities of the materials. Turbines made of plastics, metal, and latex and, put under pressure by blowers, develop a vibrating dynamic of their own, varying in accordance with the characteristics of their material. Feedback systems effect acoustic loops; microphone articulation is the human component. Enjoy!

☼ Deathkey - Totenkopf EP [re-issue]

(by request)
Deathkey is one of these names whose releases or outputs are always followed by a wave of comments, criticism, vaunts and outrage. This person, representing radically right-wing attitude, offers no compromises by aggressively displaying "offensive" symbolism, hate-filled sounds and inhuman declarations, raising unsatisfactory feedback with every move.
Generally, if you are interested in politicized power-electronics, maybe this will do it for you...?
Always remember…
#1 Deathkey is NOT "music".
#2 Deathkey is beyond the realms of "music".
#3 I leave music for musicians.
#4 Deathkey is a plague.
#5 May this world suffer from its infection………

☼ Kraken Duumvirate - From The Dying Soil To The Eternal Sea EP

Kraken Duumvirate are a band that themselves are shrouded in secrecy, as the project has been kept to the forlorn underground for undoubtedly quite personal reasons. Little is known about the project other than it is apparently a duo of depressive experimental black metal musicians and that the music is largely sea-based and doom-ridden, feeding off the tragic ideal of being dragged into the abyss that is the ever-expansive sea and devoured. Though quite minimal, it takes at least a few listens through for one to really grasp all the beauty and despair that “From The Dying Soil To The Eternal Sea” has to offer. Somehow, this release is more than just black metal, more than just dark ambient or whatever you, as a human, are inclined to try to define and label it as.
It's as if Kraken's tendril reached out from great faceless waves, impelling you to take a bow where the heavens meet the waters. Seizing you to your knees, forcing to gaze to the veiled bottomless depths…
This release is the first part in the series of experiencing the concealed underwater mysteries manifested through forward thinking experimental black metal with a slightly technical edge and doom leaning.
Limited to 800 pieces.

Artist(s) Country: Finland
Label(s): Ahdistuksen Aihio Productions
