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.

ONUS "Proslambanomenos" CD (83rd Cycle)
New joint project from the master minds behind SOPHIA / ARCANA and EMPUSAE. Peter Bjärgö and Nicolas 'Sal-Ocin' Van Meirhaeghe’s long term friendship culminates in this unique collaborative project, ONUS. Based on recordings created by Peter over some years, Nicolas then worked to transform them into a perfect symbiosis of both musician’s respective projects. Ethereal and introspective, Onus transpires with the burden of life yet offers a far away glimpse of hope.

THE HUMAN VOICE “Silent Heart” CD (82nd Cycle)
NORTHAUNT’s Herleif Langas unveiled in 2008 new work under the name THE HUMAN VOICE. Now the much anticipated follow up to his first album is finally here as “Silent Heart”. Where his work as Northaunt primarily focuses on rendering barren landscapes aurally, The Human Voice dives within, to the emotional turbulence and confusion of a lost soul. Melodic piano passages and intricate field recordings like only he can capture fuse with sparse atmospherics. “Silent Heart” is a deep personal plunge into the aching heart of man.

New volume by Austrian analog photographer KRIST MORT. Following her highly acclaimed “Inlumaeh” Book where we saw a more chronological overview of the general aesthetics of her past body of work, she now presents us “Tera”, a more focused conceptual photographic exploration of the primal origins the human body. Six chapters take us through the cycles of birth and decay, portraying bodies as more abstract shapes turning into desolate landscapes. Bodies rooted in earth, evolving to their intend forms to eventually decay and disintegrate to their origins, back to soil. A poignant metaphor on life and death and the universe’s governing cycles, uniquely rendered through her very particular photographic eye.
Limited Edition of 300 copies. 128 pages. Hardcover with Blind Debossing on a light grey natural cardboard. Special Lay flat binding. 18x24cm, Matte Finish.

DEHN SORA “The Sensation Of Being One Of Them” Book/CD (81st Cycle)
French graphic designer and musician Dehn Sora, (aka Treha Sektori), compiled over two years of his visual work taken from exhibitions, carefully selected works commissioned by various international musical acts and labels (Blut aus Nord, Church of Ra, Manes, Cyclic Law and more) and also presents us two full series of new artworks.
The book is accompanied by a 25 minutes album of previously unreleased material specially created for this book release. Titled “The Sense of Dust and Sheer” and composed as a soundtrack to the books visuals, it is a collaboration between Dehn Sora’s own project, Treha Sektori, and the solo project of Swiss composer Sam Vaney, Muhd (of Cortez fame). A unique addition to this album is the rare presence of Kristoffer Rygg from Ulver, contributing his always poignant vocal skills to the whole, making this ep a very special piece in itself.
Divided into four chapters, Dehn Sora exposes his chimerical visual obsessions through the hidden symbolism of animality and manifests sacred, unknown mythologies. Each pieces are accompanied by a written comment, complementing their deeper meaning.

Ominousium reflects on a mental and physical hardship and serves offers a glimpse into past periods and events, bringing to light hidden states and emotions.

KAMMARHEIT “The Nest” CD (78th Cycle)
10 years after the now cult classic album “The Starwheel”, Kammarheit finally offers us brand new material of his most complex work yet. Pär Boström returns with his typical atmospheres that are both apocalyptic in vision and soothing to the soul, delivering a dense and compelling album of pure, awe-inspiring darkness and meditative ambience. With The Nest, Pär takes us on a subterranean journey through enormous halls of unfathomable depths, and with the new opus he demonstrates once again why he’s become one of the most respected artist in dark ambient.
