☼ Illusion Of Safety / Hands To / Beequeen – Guru Means Slayer Of Darkness

This release, while technically a compilation, is actually a musical experiment conducted by Illusion of Safety, Hand To, and Beequeen. Each band is exploring in their own unique way the use of the absence of sound in a track much in the same way John Cage utilized the sound of the audience in his classic '4:33.' The premise is that while the primary effects of a composition of music is to experience the artists ability to manipulate abstract pieces of sound into a single cohesive element there also lies the notion that without the absence of certain distinct sounds that track cannot exist. Music plainly put is organized noise and when it fails to retain any type of structure or fabrication it is no longer music but only noise. By utilizing the often unnoticed truancy of certain sound elements each artist how to be able to better understand the composition of what is commonly defined as music. A good example would be to take a track of music and for each note on the scale, flip it totally in reverse, playing white noise generated by a air compressor or a Verdi Opera. Simply listening to this album doesn't give us all the answers but it allows us to expand our minds towards a new method of thinking that we may have not experienced before 1996.

☼ Monte Cazazza – The Worst Of / The Cynic

Monte Cazazza is an American industrial music & culture pioneer, who has performed with or aided many acts such as Factrix, Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV. A true legend!

☼ Monte Cazazza – The Worst Of Monte Cazazza

“The Worst Of Monte Cazazza” is compilation of tracks by Monte Cazazza and associated acts.
Monte Cazazza conjures up a harsh, huge monster, who, if given the chance, will bite your head clean off. His music is harsh industrial in the purest sense. Opening with “Psychiatric Report,” an actual real life report of the man Monte himself, the album immediately sets the tone taken up by Throbbing Gristle of; 'let's be as offensive and disgusting as we can.' Indeed there are a few spoken word tracks on the album, from the eerily sincere “To Mom On Mother's Day,” in which Monte waxes lyrical about how great his mum is and how perverse he is, “Kick that Habit Man” - a song about Monte judging someone and forcing them to give up heroin, to “Rabid Rats,” the completely engrossing tale of how Vietnamese soldiers were inflicted with rabies, and how 'rabies is the worst way for a human to die.' The album really is a brutal and punishing exercise, not only in Cazazza's ability to make the music, but the listener's ability to take frightening and disgusting body blow after body blow. The great thing about the album though, and in general the first wave of industrial music, is the sense of humour of the musicians is directly in contrast to the horrendous and often disgusting subject matter. Cazazza, and his contemporaries Throbbing Gristle, are excellent examples of this sense of humour, prevalent in industrial music.

☼ Monte Cazazza – The Cynic

He's back! No, not the man behind the mask, but the man who coined the term "Industrial music for industrial people" for Throbbing Gristle and unwittingly unleashed a new musical genre. “The Cynic” is the first album from cultural mortician and the same sick fuck who gave us such delights as ‘Mary Bell’ and ‘To Mom On Mother's Day’ (see above!) though the Monte Cazazza of today doesn't plummet to the same depths. From the opening deep dark droning soundtrack stylings of ‘Interrogator’ “The Cynic” presents an eclectic collection of tracks, with the aid of Lustmord on additional programming and production and Freddy-G (Gianneli) on guitars. It's hardly surprising that much of this sounds old though; “The Cynic” has been talked about for years. There's an EST interview with Lustmord from the early ‘90s where he cites “The Cynic” as a future release on his now defunct Side Effects label.
“The Cynic” isn't really going to appeal to anyone looking for industrial music but anyone (like me) who remembers Monte Cazazza's output as a solo artist or as The Atom Smashers is gonna fuckin' love this!

☼ Nocturne - Terroriser-Manipuler-Convaincre

This is a concept album built around the figure of Doctor Mabuse, the anti-hero of Norbert Jacques's novel, the genius of crime and chaos, the genius of finance in a slow falling world in the first part of 1900. Slow moving uncompromising industrial and abrasive power-electro, using analog instrumentation mixed up with sounds from the beginning of the last century and many samples in German language taken from the legendary movie.

☼ VA.\Danvers State Recordings - Show 73 by DJ Peter Lee from Xiled Radio Podcast

A spotlight on power electronics label Danvers State Recordings . (be sure to check out their blog and buy some killer tapes!)
I was able to download all of the MP3 radio shows from the Xiled Radio site, but now they have 'temporarily' removed the downloads and only offer streaming or podcast. So, I thought I would offer the MP3 download for those who don't like streaming or podcasts.
This label is great amazing and needs as much exposure as possible, so please check this out if you are a fan of power electronics, death industrial, noise, etc.
