Japanese review translated to English: I once saw “Ultraman 80" itself when I was a kid, songs are used, and when listening to the theme music collection of Ultraman 80, I recall Ultraman 80 at that time And while feeling nostalgia, I am immersed in it.

Violet Poison is the dark, enigmatic and esoteric side-project of Francesco Baudazzi, already known as Obtane, co-owner with Giorgio Gigli of the defunct techno label Zooloft. The project is focused on analogue proto-techno with influences from 70’s Italian progressive bands like Goblin or OST composers like Fabio Frizzi and earlier Downwards records from 1994-1995.
Dark Ambient, Drone, Experimental, Industrial, Noise, Ambient, Electronic; Limited Edition Purple Vinyl LP - Ex Used condition
Originally released in a private press run of handmade tapes, the collaboration was made in person with Alberich and Lussuria making use of digital synths in homage to that distinctly European scene of the mid 90’s that combined hardcore Industrial textures with Ambient pulses. It’s a sound you’ll be familiar with if you’ve immersed yourself in the most unnervingly quiet sections of the last few Prurient albums, building a kind of futuristic soundscape situated somewhere between David Lynch, Kevin Drumm and a more dystopian variant of Brad Fiedel’s distinctive soundtrack to The Terminator. Alberich’s instinct for harsh propulsive rhythms is here tempered by Lussuria’s weird topography, the digital rendering adding a kind of artificial foundation quite removed from the throbbing earthiness you’d find on a hardware session. Instead, the more linear trajectory of so many dark Ambient excursions is replaced with a constantly shifting landscape, veering from an oddly displaced vocal narrative into pounded, crumbling rhythms at some points, while those sinking subbass sands keep things resolutely atmospheric for the duration. There are no concessions to that blackened aesthetic here, if you were into Green Graves or want to immerse yourself in one of the most brutally atmospheric albums you’ll hear this year, we urge you to check it out.

The album that followed on from 2003's Bird Seed album, Asceticists 2006 was the culmination of three years of obsessive sound tinkering by William Bennett. The album revealed a bold - or more accurately, terrifying - sound to it, full of noise and ear-shredding bombast, with incredible vocals, rasped in the most anarchic and hair-raising intonation on brilliantly titled tracks like 'Ruthless Babysitting' and 'Dumpng The Fucking Rubbish'. Amazing stuff, but it'll leave you a bit bruised.

180 Page Hardcover Book with 11" Record, featuring Kevin Drumm. What separates Dominick Fernows Prurient project from the rest of the contemporary underground cannon is its unyielding personal subject matter. From the inception of Prurient the concept has always utilized intimate details, photographs, letters and other ephemera culled from places where most artists would choose to obscure. Prurient draws these details into focus more than ever on Rose Pillar, a 180-page hardbound book of Fernows collage work and text supplied by his mother Jean Feraca from her previously published memoir I Hear Voices. Feraca tells the story of the death of Stephen, the brilliant but troubled older brother, an anthropologist who was adopted into a Sioux tribe. Feracas text is juxtaposed with Fernows collages of fallen empires, plant-life and industrial decline. The imagery presented is both stoic yet strangely profound and revealing as an analogy of death. Rose Pillar also contains an 11” vinyl LP containing material from Prurient that is some of the most profound and fully-realized work of his career. Prurient is not about an attack but rather a cry for help. Prurient takes the listener to the ends of human emotion as the range of sounds swell as the light of life fades. The climax of the album is the track “spins the worlds wheel again” which contains the most densely melodic frozen drone ever contained on a Prurient recording. What's evidenced in these recordings is a sense of loss and destruction that cant be replaced. The sound feels more like an erosion of steady decline, ebb and flow, storms, power controlled and power unleashed. This multimedia project pries deeply through the depths of mourning on both a personal and societal scale. In conversation Prurient has exclaimed Rose Pillar to be the end of an era in both function and material. This is Prurient taken to its furthest and most satisfyingly complete conclusion. Nothing will be the same after this release as this is the ultimate result of Prurient's process. Finality is a recurring theme with Rose Pillar and that says more than anything.

Russell Haswell joins Philip Best's Consumer Electronics for the face-melting force of 'Estuary Electronics'. Following on from the Mattin-produced 'Crowd Pleaser' (2009), it finds the pioneering duo at their most virile and vital across seven tracks rife with sputtering tech-n0!se and, of course, Best's spray it, don't say it delivery. It's a cruel, vicious fucker and therein lies its charm in showing up most of their field as dilettantes. Between the flatulent jag of 'Teknon' to the staggering, 'floor bleaching force of 'Co-opted' or the 'Air Lock' monologue that seals the final side, it delivers visceral thrills in a way most others can't compete with. And it's all the more powerful for its reduced and optimised palette - vocals, spatter drums and eviscerated electronics stoically delivered with real venom where it matters. For adventurous DJs, proper wrong 'uns, and the noise brigade, it's stone cold essential.

On the foreboding ‘Three Knocks’ Lussuria limns an unconscious, near-death experience based on a tale told by his grandmother, who was admitted to ER after an allergic reaction escalated into something inexplicable. She was put in a medically induced coma and administered a breathing tube. When under the effect of heavy sedatives, she spoke of a visit by angels who warned of an impending disaster. She eventually came around, and recounted that her illness was preceded by three knocks at her office door, slow and heavy - proposing that each knock was a mockery of the Holy Trinity; one knock for each crucifixion - but when she answered nobody was there. This omen, and its confirmatory hallucination form the basis of this utterly absorbing Lussuria album. Using a Hawaiian flute made from a human femur, and an Iron Lung for percussion (don’t ask how he accessed it), together with operatic tape cut-ups and field recording made on the shores of Long Island’s empty asylums, Lussuria stages his grandmother’s vision in four parts of lugubrious, black metal ambient gloom. The atmosphere is just frighteningly tangible, revealing a sense of depth perception and stone cold clamminess that brings its spirit vividly within touching distance, from the over-the-shoulder vocals and cracked window pane howl of ‘Fentanyl Chaser’, to the hollow clank of oil drums and spent ammo casings in ‘Three Knocks’, and through to the frankly terrifying descent thru choral loops into a bony flute solo with ‘Confused And Ill By Shadows’. This would all just be another urban myth were it not for the exquisite detail and dramaturgy of Lussuria’s production and arrangement, which typically imparts its feeling in no uncertain terms, most acutely hyperstizing (making a superstition real) a state of psychological dread and panic induced by the occult imagination.

Hospital Productions present a digital edition for one of the most affective industrial/ambient collections in their catalogue, and one of the label's most sought-after. Over the course of three cassettes (limited to just 99 copies) issued in 2012, Lussuria ("Lust" in Italian) drip fed these eight tracks of opiated, phantasmic SM atmospheres into the musical bloodstream, duly hailed by many as one of the most crucial set of tracks released that year. Reflecting the ritualistic appeal of late '70s and early '80s Italian industrial à la Cicciolina Holocaust, Sermonizer or MB, crossed with the epic claustrophobia of early material from the Cure and the decadent, voyeuristic compulsion of Pasolini flicks so enamoured by Coil, the enigmatic Lussuria has conceived nothing short of a dark ambient masterpiece for our times. It's a De Quincey or De Sade-like meditation on a perceived American condition that percolates far beyond its borders, matching the militant oppression of Vatican Shadow. So many attempt this sound, yet it's putative pleasures remain just out of grasp to most. Not so with Lussuria.

Notorious split LP from Nicole 12 and Prurient complete with very disturbing wraparound printed card sleeve and lyric sheet. The Nicole 12 side is particularly harrowing, with monstrously mutated found tapes ala Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson put to spools of high end electronics and ferociously delivered lyrics exploring variously fucked mind states. The bleak ardour of the music barely relents, jamming a whole bunch of contradictory and ambiguous signals in a way that gives you little room to orientate yourself or make any definitive reading, forcing you back on your own preconceptions, prejudices and dark places. Terribly uneasy listening that demands a response way the hell beyond any comfortable binary notion of good/evil or right/wrong. So don’t put your brain to bed. Prurient side is a beauty, featuring a bunch of tracks segued together in a fog of low-grade feedback and immolating vocal form. Banned from sale on Discogs due to disturbing content.
