Legacy Future messing around with Unreal Tournament Alpha

Last time I played Unreal Tournament was back in 2002-2003 when I ended up 4th in the European Lan Tournament. Thought to get my hands on Unreal tournament Alpha version 2017. Messy gameplay (its been a while and I Read more

Reverorum Ib Malacht “Ter Agios Numini” album review and soundcloud excerpt

I must give credit for discovering REVERORUM IB MALACHT to longtime comrade John Gossard (Dispirit, ex-Asunder, ex-Weakling)! Strangely enough, following his words of praise back in the early 10’s I haven’t instantly listened to any of their records. This is Read more

INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

NECROBLOOD “Collapse of the Human Race” black/death metal album review and bandcamp stream

Parisian old-school metal band NECROBLOOD have penetrated violently my musical microcosm back in 2011. They have done so with the best credentials that an underground metal band could possibly have according to my book: a debut self-titled 7”EP released by Read more

Randolph & Mortimer New Track “Existing, Not Living”

Posted on by Vassago in Electronic, Music | Leave a comment

In an age where electronic music as a genre is so obsolete with more and more bands claiming its precious tag (but in reality releasing the repetitive known to all electronic body music), Randolph & Mortimer new release is welcomed as a balsam to my wounded ears. For those not aware with the band, Randolph & Mortimer – who got their name from the movie “Trading Places” where two broker brothers do a ‘Prince & Pauper’ move with actors Dan Aykroyd and Eddie Murphy. The names of these characters intrigued them and felt that it suited the message they wanted to express in my music” as they recently admitted on an exclusive interview with Decompression magazine – are playing electronic music mainly influenced by the late 80s and early 90s with influences from bands such as Nitzer Ebb , Ministry and if I dare to say Control Bleeding.

Enjoy their brand new “analogue” video, released moments ago.

autoclav1.1-tenpointone

Autoclav1.1 announced on their facebook page today that their ten year anniversary album titled ‘ten.one.point.one.‘ will be released by WTII Records. Autoclav1.1 has gained a reputation for pulling on the deepest of human emotions with a variety of melody, frequently torn apart by paranoid beatwork and broken rhythmical structures. This Autoclav1.1 signature formula is ever present throughout Ten.one.point.one. From the dark soundscapes and haunting piano of “16a” to the break beats “Your Face Goes Here,” Autoclav1.1 continues to push new boundaries and proves things only get better with age.

HECQ: AVENGER CD Hymen Records

Posted on by Vassago in Electronic, Music | Leave a comment

The ever prolific Ben Lukas Boysen returns with his Hecq project this time basing his output on a cross hybrid of super heroes and Mexican wrestlers; the artwork comes from Mexican street artist Saner and if you hunt down

hecqavenger

the limited version of this album you are ludicrously going to be walking away with a Mexican wrestlers mask. Want.
So onto the music; you know, I simply haven’t got a bad word to say about Hecq, not one iota… it’s ridiculous that I can pick up any of his albums and mumble the word ‘amazing’ and this again is no exception; ‘With Angels’ is a prime of example of the word with beats so masterfully cut up alongside visceral power from the electronics, couple this with ‘Pulverised’ this is sheer legendary heart stirring stuff musically. You can forget the likes of Venetian Snares and Aphex Twin and the like because Hecq makes a mockery of them all.

HAUJOBB: Dead Market CDEP Tympanik AUdio

Posted on by Vassago in Electronic, Music | Leave a comment

It’s been absolutely ages since we heard from Daniel Myer’s main project Haujobb and boy has it been well worth the wait with this prelude to the forthcoming album ‘New World March’. This EP comprises of 2 new tracks in the haujobb-deadmarket-coverform of the title track and a mix of another new track ‘Letting the Demons Sleep’ along with five mixes of Dead Market along with an extended mix.
So onto the main track itself; it reeks of pure Haujobb with pulsating bass and beat structures and futuristic electronics along with Daniel’s vocals sounding better than ever, it’s psychotic and off kilter and thoroughly engaging and things are looking good for this project circa 2011.

ABS6 – Audiomedikation CD Review, Hymen Records

Posted on by Vassago in Electronic, I.D.M, Music | Leave a comment

An array of styles clash and ultimately combine on this release from IDM to electro and ambient structures melding drum and bass into twisted scattered concoctions that remind you of a time when we were bombarded with music from the Warp generation.abs6Many an artist can be cited when listening to ‘Audiomedikation’; ‘Aphex Twin’, ‘Venetian Snares’ and the like. This is done unashamedly and I believe this is the intention, and who are we to argue with the main influx of work from such artists being of a high visual presence if not always of the highest quality; it’s still respected work.
Complex and in some part quite vicious with the assault on the senses this does keep you intrigued for the most part with cut up electronics and frenetic beats that weave and turn on themselves almost at will giving the listener no quarter to absorb upon first listen what is going on in its entirety.
