The inner exploration continues its mysterious transformation through "Varjoista" ,more deeper and penetrating than last one.this time the ritual drone trance soundscapes submerged you to the primal waters of a distant stellar tradition. so cold,so mysterious,a primigenian call through field recordings,ritual drummings and the intense drone trance sounds,with almost 10 minutes of pure spiritual exaltation. the last hym released here is called "Tulelle" ,a long deep trance one with almost 19 minutes,in which your inner fire and the lunar seeds are joined creating  an alchemical substance to trascends the spiritual planes.the whole album can be considered as an evocative devotional hymn to the lunar-seed mixed with the mercurial essence to create an apotheosis of self in the totally of existence.hypnotic,and deep ,one more time HALO MANASH surprise us with an incredible album full of magnetism and charisma from start to finish.The album will be available in two editions: 350 CDs and 50 cassettes.

Rising from Sao paolo Brazil this orthodox luciferian project consecrate its most powerfull rite to date,under the igneous black flame of lucifer. an intense and well structured album which will transport you to such deep vast qliphotic realms due the extremely 6 compositions relelased here + intro/Outro. Opening the album is an intro revealing a pompous neo classical hymn full of bombastic elements. then comes "Vobiscum Inferni " doing honour to the horde's name, the track is just pure devastating and catastrophic in its mos pure essence,remembering the guitar parts to the one of blackmoon at the "secrets of the bltack Ars" album by Dark Funeral but still being so creative. "Discipline of the Black Arts " is just amazing ,ripping chords and a very interesting word of  drums makes of this track one of the best ones here.still with such intense moments from start to finish.after such devastating one emerges "Blessed by the Stench of Darkness",a peregrination to the secret wisdom through dense  guitar tunes and mid tempo drums,which are impressively good,so the guitar and bass parts are just briliant,so this is teh best track from teh whole album for sure,although all of them contisns such a dose of enigmatic and mysterious sounds worth to check.the ritual continues with "Gloria Victoriam Diaboli " and "For the Greatness of His Kingdom of Fire and Blood " both of them  raw and potent  compositions with the seal of darkness from start to finish,so one of the best projects coming from south America lately. The album closes with "Perversum Necropedophilian Aeternum " and an Outro to complete this ritual piece of pure black metal exaltation. Highly recoomended for those into raw,satanic and primitive black metal in its most pure form!! all hails VOBISCUM INFERNI

"here Is Now" Digi cd 2012
Created in 2008 in Ney York city by David Tamura who has been working in several projects,focused all its efforts to create a psychotic machine adapting diverse elements from noise,jazz and improvisation structures which all of them colapsed into each one of its 3 albums,being the new work called "Here Is Now",developing 9 compositions full of schizophrenic experimental music,with an powerful hightlight due how each one of the tracks is emerging with new elements within passing of the tracks. "wheres Ion" is just chaotic and bizarre bringing just madneess through the use of sounds and arrangements,all of them compressed into a  psychotic pulsation from chaos itself. "Whee Irons" comes with more sutile sounds and guitar elements bathed by a improvisational stuff which gives the track such original touch. "Oh Rise" is just a calm and melodic Jazz composition with some perfect Saxophone parts and percussive elements.The point with ThE JAZZFAKERS is the capability to trascends  different sounds into new layers of  originality and suggestive sounds. "Her Woe Sin" is a suggestive piece adapting itself into  plate sounds and saxo elements and electronic devices  creating a new paradigm into the music perception as a wholeness of chaos itself. an interesting album worth to be explored.

Here the spectral metabolism is focused into cd + dvd converging the whole integrity of a project focusing from a suggestive way a trscendental  voyage conecting us with water and moon,creating a parallel universe where both elements are conjoined creating an in deep transformation. The video side is developed by Anna Pilewicz,a visual artist and who has been participating in various projects. with a total of 6 tracks ,transforming each one of them into a living organism through drone sounds and suggestive osscilating analogue synths which sometimes adquire highest dimensions due the nature of how the music is turning with the pass of minutes. Rattles and metal sounds evoking spectral passages are handled from time to time given the album in general a more than interesting elements worth to explore. water sounds,field recordings and electronic effects complements the album,adapting diverse steles of sounds and layers of in deep drone spaces. The nature of the visual side is handled here in a very impressive way,because all of the  visual structures are floating in the same alchemical focus,with diverse suggestive sprectral fractals deforming and mutating all the time. there is a part in which Mesdusas floats in a very harmonic way,as danzing in a great vast ocean of darkness.also there is a part when a female is under water submerged in a sea of primigenian madness and reptilian tendrils haunting  her to the deeps of the void itself. A very interesting album worth to explore.

The highlights at "There's No Other God Than Rambo!" is the way as the percussive sounds and the diverse electronic atmospheres are joint in order to create and eclectic and sticking rythmic compositions.A very interesting album for all those involved into experiemntal and original music from start to finish.

The legend RAPOON in the shape of Robin Storey,continues its strong and mysterious path with this new album in which you can experience all its potential in the fields of experimental music,creating a marvelous piece through 11 compositions adapting perfectly each other to create this almost perfect album.
The album begins with the composition "Sputnik Remix",a suggestive piece with very incredible sounds as trumpet parts surrounded by bass lines and sutile jazzy elements going well structured through the whole track. The voyage continues with tracks as " Earthbound And Emotional" and "Hybryd Identities",both tracks floating into such calm sounds and loops,the first one including female voices in German Language as far as I can hear.and the other being more experimental when we track in a structural sense. The whole album contains a high dose of creativity and marvelous elements which only RAPOON can develop. Tracks as "(memories of) Holydays At The Sea,with such sutil and beautiful sounds emerging to offer you exquisite touch to the album in general. or even "of course There Are Aliens (In This World Early Uptempo mix)" with interesting loops beats mixed with penetrating voices and atmospheres creating an interesting piece here. This is an album with so many interesting elements worth to check.

One of the most impressive artist from Polish Scene is without a doubt Rafal Iwanski,known by projects such as Hati,Voices Of The Cosmos,X-Navi:et.. "Brain Overloaded" is an album which trascends the limits of mind,a visionary conjunction of elements which at hearing inserts a new dimension of possibilities,due the evolutive nature of each one of the 7 compositions included here.  Opening the album is "Is It Your Brain" a psychedelic experience based o repetitive electronic spaces,drawings sonic matrix from an experimental perspective. Then we have "Artificial Landscape" a more dense and penetrating than first track. A Travel to human mind,a travel to subconsious through diverse filter machines and sounds generators,creating one of the best compositions here. Through "contra-stasis",the deep platform transforming into a dark machine with strong reverberating sounds,diverse elements converging and mutating all the time. "minute By Minute,Second By Second" is a sutil but at the same time an enigmatic travel to nothingness,basing its music through minimalistic soundscapes filled with such industrial touches giving the track a powerful and vibrational mixure through dynamism expressed here. "Total Overproduction","reversed Space For No One" and "Reset Digital Demon" complements this great album by one of the most creative projects worldwide.the whole album is dedicated to william s. burroughs with incredible art cover from Polish Artist Ewa Binezyk.
