JH1.FS3 - Silence.DOM

JH1.FS3 - Silence.DOM
self released

This is a collaborative project between and Jesse Sanes (Liebestod/Hoax) and Frederikke Hoffmeier (Puce Mary) that is a different project than their other collaborative project Fejhed. This is a little more nosie ala Hair Police and I felt that Fejhed was a little more power electronics - I don't know, maybe I'm splitting hairs. Fans of any of their other electronics projects will obviously enjoy this.

Stillborn Fawn - Norn

Stillborn Fawn - Norn

I thought the newest Bleak Environment seemed a little skimpy since usually they don't put out as long as tapes as these, but with 2 full lengths from Tollund Men and Stillborn Fawn I'm very happy. I like what metal in Colorado is doing with Blood Incantation and especially Spectral Voice (check that out if you haven't). This is no different - 40 minutes of ripping black metal. I love the mid tempo parts, I could definitely slam to those. It's mixed a little weird IMO but whatever, right? The production is raw enough where it doesn't even matter that much. Another great release from Bleak Environment though, well worth the wait between batches of releases for them. The Spectral Voice and Blood Incantation split has been out for a while but you should definitely pick that one up also.

Tollund Men - Autoerotik

Tollund Men - Autoerotik

Finally, a Tollund Men full length! I'll keep this post brief since I haven't fully digested this yet but obviously this is great. "Post-post synth pop" is still the best way to describe this band. I'm happy they finally recorded a full length because every release they've done left me wanting more. This definitely feels like a complete album - definitely a must hear. Total support for Bleak Environment.
