2017-04-05       05 Apr / 2017

 

 
New offering from Russia’s shamanic ritualists PHURPA. Channeling the void with their eerie and engulfing overtone ritual chants rooted in the BON tradition of Tibet, their mesmerising rituals are used as a tool of transmogrification. The chanting meditations are accentuated by the use nga drums, rolmo cymbals, gyaling oboes, as well as telescopic dunchen horns, dunkar shells and short wandun horns. Their performances are meant as exercises in aural power, channeled primordial sounds aimed to alter ones consciousness, otherworldly prayer mantras pulsating through the chakras.  This exhaustive Double album was recorded in Moscow, Russia in March 2016. Let go and touch the emptiness…

Pre-Order - Funerary Call "The Mirror Reversed II" CD (77th Cycle)

Pre-Order - Available April 28 2015.
 
FUNERARY CALL “The Mirror Reversed II” CD (77th Cycle)
The spectral second and final instalment of Funerary Call’s “The Mirror Reversed” tumbles deeper through the Setian tunnels, leading the way to the vast and mysterious Other Side. Continuing from where his initial movement left us, Harlow MacFarlane once again summons the tones and auras of his Qliphothic interpretation. It is a serpentine force extending from a churning black vortex lined with crystalline fetters. A dark and textured voyage through the shards of the shattered black surface that once reflected the illusory. The 46-minute meditation ebbs and flows through ambient pulsations of fear, awakening, and the unknowable. Each segmented chapter is a dynamic representation of the individual demonic forces at work, bringing us closer to the roiling waters of formlessness. The forbidden freedom of the Other Side awaits.
 
Edition of 500 copies in 6 panel Digi Sleeve. 1 Track. Running Time 46.02

SHRINE "Ordeal 26.04.86" CD (88th Cycle) Out Now!

2016-10-26       26 Oct / 2016

The new full length by SHRINE is dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Chernobyl disaster that happened on April 26th, 1986. Composed during a post-operative convalescence period in 2015 Hristo Gospodinov says of the process: “To me the Chernobyl theme has always been very special not only because I witnessed the nuclear sunburn effects myself back in 1986 when I was a kid, but also because I find it to be the closest glimpse of a pending apocalypse we have seen so far. I find it terrifying not only because of the devastating effect of the ionizing radiation itself, but also because it was a man-made event. To me, the parallel with the biblical book of Revelation is inescapable.” Laced with emotional distress and SHRINE’s superbly crafted soundscapes and notable sound design skills, “Ordeal 26.04.86” serves as a tribute to those that suffered, and still suffer from the irreparable. Events like this one have happened again since, the most recent being in Japan’s Fukushima, and there’s definite signs that in the future we’ll unfortunately witness more of these man made catastrophes, in that eventuality, “Ordeal” will serve as the perfect soundtrack. Artwork by Dehn Sora and Hristo Gospodinov.
Edition of 500 copies in 4 panel Digipack. 6 Tracks, 50:00

SOPHIA “Unclean” CD/LP/CS (84th Cycle) Out Now!

2016-03-31       31 Mar / 2016

SOPHIA “Unclean” CD/LP/CS (84th Cycle)

New opus from Sweden’s Industrial Ambient project from Peter Bjärgö (Arcana). Bringing together some of the original collaborators which were featured on earlier albums, Per Ählund, Stefan Eriksson and Ia Bjärgö, “Unclean” is again an outstanding piece of sonic force. Pounding percussions,  commanding vocal parts and expanding ambient passages all merge to give us and absorbing, diverse and forward thinking journey. “Unclean” is an excursion into the folly of man’s self destructive tendencies, with a slight hope of a possible awakening before the last gasp is taken.

 

CD Edition of 1000 Copies. 12 Tracks. Running Time 37:40

LP Edition of 500 Copies. 12 Tracks. Running Time 37:40

CS Edition of 100 Copies.12 Tracks. Running Time 37:40 in Collaboration with Total Black
