Sadist - The Shadow Of The Swastika

Sadist - The Shadow Of The Swastika
self released

Definitely one of my favorite current Boston bands. Extremely noisy punk. This has some songs from their demo except with way more noise and production that suits them well. Great demo as well if you haven't heard it. There's a seamless transition and a locked groove on the last track that I let play for around 20 seconds.

Koufar - Lebanon For Lebanese

Koufar - Lebanon For Lebanese

The legendary return of Koufar on Fusty Cunt. 30 minutes of unrelenting power electronics. The label describes this as "putting an end to 'safe' power electronics" and I fully agree. Very political and personal, the vocals really bring that out. Vinyl was definitely the correct format for this release as it's so heavy hitting with so much stereo work. I strongly suggest picking up this monstrosity from Fusty Cunt as it is definitely some of the best power electronics released in quite some time.

Black Cilice - Mysteries

Black Cilice - Mysteries

The mysteries are not to be revealed.

The covers of Black Cilice's LPs should be enough for you to check them out but if you haven't now is the time. One man black metal from Portugal that boarders noise, extremely raw. This is not as abrasive as his albums, you can hear more melody in this one (though still not much). Very great record though, truly unmatched in this style.

Erotikens Historie - Homosexuality

 
Erotikens Historie - Homosexuality

 "Heavy synth drones on forbidden sexualis" basically sums up this release. This one was limited to 30 copies in the most recent batch of releases that Posh Isolation put out. Discogs says it came with a Posh Isolation condom but mine didn't, which is too bad. Regardless, this is more of a drone release mixed with some noise and power electronics. 2 tracks at about 16 minutes.

Haraam - When The Sacred Months Have Passed

Haraam - When The Sacred Months Have Passed

Fallow Field continues to put out top notch music. This batch didn't even have any black metal! Another project I know nothing about but enjoy a lot. This one takes from the industrial techno scene and even has some jungle/hardcore influence, which is great. Not very far off from the Downwards stuff like Surgeon and Regis, except much more lo-fi and nosier. Very bass heavy. Definitely my favorite from the batch.
