[SOP 033-1317] Symbolic Death - Negative Leader



After a track on Dancefloor Killer and remixes for Antistatic and Kallkällan it’s time for French producer Symbolic Death’s solo release: Five tracks in glistening production value offering some nice and welcome variation.
While „Suze“ can be considered the industrial techno peak time centerpiece of the EP, the rest works with some different aspects – a coherent fusion of doom and acid („Negative Leader“), a stampede of crossover rhythmic noises („Combo“), trickling space atmospheres („Tspark 11“) and a buildup with melodic grandeur (Saga“).
Pure delight with an extra dash of darkness!

Label: Spirit Of Progress

Ausdärmen - Corps Apoptotiques



La nuit est ma nudité, les étoiles sont mes dents, je me jette chez les morts habillés de blanc soleil. La mort habite mon coeur comme une petite veuve, elle sanglote elle est lâche, j’ai peur je pourrai vomir, la veuve rit jusqu’au ciel et déchire les oiseaux.

[TumorCD106] The Vomit Arsonist - Meditations On Giving Up Completely



Anyone familiar with The Vomit Arsonist’s past body of work should know to expect a healthy dose of negativity and hopelessness with every release, but never has that been more true than with his 5th full length, Meditations on Giving Up Completely. There is no reinvention of the sound and no veering off course, but rather a narrowing of the sonic palette, condensed into a continual free-fall of complete despair and nihilism. As Andy Grant described it, Meditations is a release about "futility, failure, and no longer being able to find even a shred of worth in humanity". That mindset is perfectly captured and reflected in the stripped down, monolithic nature and sheer dense weight of the 7 tracks here, where distant furnace blasts and scraping metal abrasions churn amidst toxic fumes and opaque, polluted murk, the vocals roaring through the mix in thick sheets of distorted fury. Those with a fragile mental state may want to steer clear of this one, but for those that find solace with the curtains drawn or at the end of a rope, Meditations on Giving Up Completely is unwavering in its direction and resolute in its approach.

Label: Malignant Records

[SOP 035-1417] Hidden Rooms - Pattern



There should be a Hidden Room in every house – and definitely every techno-minded household should have a copy of this fine collection: Eleven tracks culled from the five Hidden Rooms EPs that have appeared on Spirit of Progress and ZUUR between 2013 and 2017 – plus eight digital-only bonus cuts.
Re-encounter the streak of HR techno bangers that come in flawless sound quality with an analogue feel: Firm beats, melodic hooks, washes of acid sounds – you know the drill. “Pattern” as a whole is as topical as you could think it up for 2017, with a perfect balance of underground grit and slick groove perfectly in sync with the techno Zeitgeist: A fine anthology of the Hidden Rooms project, which is more than just a sidekick to Maurice Pinkster’s The Relic and Cubic Nomad aliases, but proven as much a serious concern as those.
While the scarce CD is an attractive collector’s item in slick minimal design, the digital version contains remixes for the likes of Carnage & Cluster, Energetic-X and Bombardier, collaborations with Toysfornoise and The Peoples Republic of Europe a.o., so let’s talk about value for money!

Label: Spirit Of Progress
