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

Autoclav1.1 Werewolf Country CD Review

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

It is not a secret that this is one of my favorite bands, primarily because of it’s constant musical progression in each and every release, making Autoclav1.1 a distinctive reference into the IDM scene. With an album release almost every year, Werewolf Country (his 10th album, following up the very successful “ten.one.point.one” and in stores for quiet some time now), is published WTII a US label for lots of diverse bands such as E.S.A, Chant & Regenerator to name a few.

I was highlighting on my last review that “ten one point one” opened a new era for the band. There was a natural progression in composition and musical ideas from “Love no longer lives here” up until  “Embark on Departure“, however in his latest album we witness a progression in terms of both sound and noise selections as well as diversification in Tony’s musical taste.

I kind of expected that as a natural continuation of his anniversary album , but what I definitely didn’t see coming was “Earworm“: ,

IDM/Electronic Music Playlist 2015

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

The monthly podcast series began back in 2004 when I was running Enochian Apocalypse E-zine and was a collection of songs I really enjoyed listening at that time. I’ve decided to revive this here in Legacy Future and post on a monthly basis at least an hour of music I enjoy listening these days. It will mainly come from the IDM/electronic scene, wether it is a new or an old song.

Spotify Playlist for September

The playlist posts will include a spotify list and information about some of the bands/songs I selected as well as additional clips and videos. My intention is to update this list monthly, ideally around the 15th of each month. For September I decided to include 10 songs (49mins length) from Autoclav1.1, Carpenter Brut, Detritus, Perturbator, Blanck Mass, The Night Terrors, Stendeck, Byetone & Amon Tobin.

UPDATE: I originally planned to do this every month but due to limited time I wasn’t able to update the list montly, thus I rename this to a “2015” list instead of “September 2015” playlist and will do my best to update frequently this year.

E.S.A Themes of Carnal Empowerment Pt.3: Penance

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

ESA’s (Electronic Substance Abuse) sound is always a hard one to pin down. Taking influences initially from rhythmical noise acts, the overall structures have developed and integrated countless influences from the broad spectrum of alternative and extreme music. The tone of ESA is harsh and oppressive, dripping with destructive and corroded grooves whilst still emanating sub conscious melodies and a strong sense of Spirituality. ESA’s compositions are undoubtedly threatening and offensive floor stomping club tunes but also twist and churn enough to warrant more attentive listening.

With the much revered ‘Themes 1 & 2’ releases causing such a stir within the noise and harsh industrial scene, ESA’s creator, Jamie Blacker, is ready to unleash the closing album to this destructive trilogy; Themes of Carnal Empowerment Pt.3 : Penance. From the anthemic rhythms of “2nd Movement” to the tribal chants of “Juju Yako,” Blacker calls this ESA’s most complete work to date.

Here is a video preview of their latest work:

Posted on by Vassago in Experimental, I.D.M, Music | 2 Comments

Legacy Future quickly documents 10 years of music created by Autoclav1.1 and give a listen to the new 10 year anniversary album titled “Ten.one.point.one” (set to be released in June the 24th) which proves that things only get better with age.

Autoclav1.1 ‘ten.one.point.one‘ Album Cover

Autoclav1.1 is the brainchild of Tony Young, an authentic IDM/Experimental enthusiast who made his very first steps in the scene through his contribution in various music outlets as well as the release of his own fanzine “Black Harvest”. For those who knew Tony, it was only a matter of time before he would step up more actively in the music scene and start releasing his own work, you wouldn’t expect anything less from a person who dedicates most of his time to music either as a writer or a DJ.

Mamiffer & Circle “Enharmonic Intervals” free mp3 listen!

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

Remember we wrote a couple of month ago about Mamiffer & Circle “new album titled “Enharmonic Intervals”? In particular we highlighted that “This is definitely an experimental release for both (more for Circle though as Mamiffer have already done similar attempts), and  this is the kind of album that will be either a point of reference in your music collection or something to be quickly forgotten. The final judgment is yours“. Read the Mamiffer & Circle “Enharmonic Intervals” CD review.

Well here is your chance to make that judgment. Mamiffer & Circle uploaded their latest release on bandcamp and you have the chance to get a free listen before purchasing the album. Go on and give it a go and if you have some time, let us know what you think of it.

Autoclav1.1 celebrates his 10.1.1 Anniversary with a new album!

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.

Blitzkrieg Baby: Kids’ World EP Review

Blitzkrieg baby kids world ep

I have to admit that Blitzkrieg Baby chose the hard music road. Not that musicians can control their creativity and influences, but choosing a road full of soundscapes and electronic experimental sounds makes it always harder to appeal  than choosing the more commercial path, if I may say. Having said that, what we are dealing here is not simply an industrial EP, but a very specific industrial genre release that will appeal to few. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing!

March 15: Our Love Becomes A Funeral Pyre Album Review (Vinyl Only release)

Posted on by Vassago in Experimental, Industrial, Music, Noise | Leave a comment
march15 

March 15′s newest vinyl release “Our love becomes a funeral pyre”, was maybe one of the greatest surprises that landed my inbox recently, as it brought up memories from my glorious industrial past back in 1999; when I first started spinning releases over the radio such as NON, DAF, Psychic TV and Suicide. The mastermind behind this LP release, Sami Albert “Witchfinder” Hynninen – who is mainly known to the wider audience for his participation with other bands such as TÄHTIPORTTI, REVEREND BIZARRE, THE PURITAN, OPIUM WARLORDS, SPIRITUS MORTIS and AZRAEL RISING, decided to wrap up some old school tracks (originally composed in 2004) and add a couple of new ones (2010 and 2013) in order to produce this “vinyl only” edition; which will be limited to 315 copies only and available on February the 14th.  Read more

Eva Polgár & Sándor Vály: “Gilgamesh” Album Review

Posted on by Vassago in Experimental, Music, NEOCLASSICAL | Leave a comment
Gilgamesh-album-review

Before starting this review a couple of words about Gilgamesh. The poem of Gilgamesh is, perhaps, the oldest written story on Earth. It comes to us from Ancient Sumeria, and was originally written on 12 clay tablets in cuneiform script. It is about the adventures of the historical King of Uruk “Bilgamesh” (somewhere between 2750 and 2500 BCE) whose prime aim was to discover the secret of eternal life. To date, only a few fragments of it have survived and if I remember correctly this is the first attempt from a band to try and release an album based on the particular poem.
