Lindemann – Skills in Pills, fail to meet expectations

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

lindemann skills in pills promo picI remember a couple of years ago when SEGA announced the new Allien:Colonial Marines game, a high anticipated FPS based on the cult movie Alien 2. It must have been more than a year I was spamming refresh on the SEGA web site, waiting impatiently for a release date announcement. Needless to say I purchased the game immediately and it took only 40 minutes to understand 100% how AI engine works, the sloppy job in graphics, the horrible game play and eventually abandon it. Alien:Colonial Marines was the ultimate disappointment in terms of anticipation vs end product for hard core alien fans forcing SEGA to admit that the trailers were misleading and that the game failed to meet expectations.

Why I say all this on a review about Lindemann’s debut album “Skills in Pills”? Because this release reminded me a lot what I felt with this long anticipated FPS.

Debut EP “X2A” by Aevin released on 16th of February

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

The debut EP “X2A” by the Greek digital media artist Aevin released on 16th of February under the German label Raumklang Music Records (Dirk Geiger, Huron, Basementgrrr). The sound mastering was done Anatoly Tokee Grinberg of the Unguided Tactical Sounds Corp. The album’s concept is metamorphosis. The tracks work as a storytelling of one’s transformation from the past experiences to the present self.

Nostalgic piano motifs, and staccato beats punctuated by sonic interference reminisce over days gone by, while glitches throbbing in the cocoon of the skull clear away the cobwebs and the fog of sleep.

‘X2A’ transports the listener to powerful places of change—to the darkness and neon of the dancefloor temple and the secret room between the ears.

Aevins’ debut EP leaves the listener with the feeling that something of the old remains within the new, something tempered into the present, through the alchemy of the past. Brain-scrubbing beats, scanning across the auditory feld,  reawakening the senses.

The album features two exclusive remixes by Conjecture (Raumklang Music) and Totakeke (Tympanik Audio, HANDS label)

KIRI KIRI KIRI – 2xmixtape free download

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

kiri kiri kiriA mindless,formless,senseless morass of noise and glitch: KIRIKIRIKIRI featuring UK Liverpool artist Rob Morris on mixing duties,Finland metal prodigy Frans ‘Finowa’ Aalto on guitars and vocals,and Australian Sam Bean (Berzerker, The Senseless, ex-Mithras) on guitars. The old material is harsh and abrasive screechy metal electronic hell,with the stand out track being “Don’t Call Me A Liar”,and the kind ofproduction values that made old-school black metal famous.The new material is even more glitchy and mindfucked, featuring smooth production and moments that hit like a wrecking-ball wrapped in velvet.

Their music has influences from a variety of different but related genres such as Grindcore, breakcore, speedcore, sludge, doom, metal, and extreme music in general. One of the UK’s underground scene finest!

They offer 2 Mix tape albums on their web site for free (which you can download here) but for those who wants to have a taste of what they are about to listen here is the song “666×10” from their Mixtape 1 2010 release.

KIRI KIRI KIRI are unsigned and unaffiliated and they like it that way!
