"Kadath : The Antarctic" Cdr 2013
Lukasz Grochocki is a very eclectic visual artist,musician and writer who has been from a long time working on deconstructive pieces creating a universal language through the use of suggestive sounds and visuals via many channels.so,we have the pleasure to get the album "Kadath: The Antarctic" , a trascendental voyage in the myth focusing on the brother search to apotheosis through the path of the mysterious Kadath ,following the spectral shadows of the self in the cold frezzing anctartica. The album include 7 ritual ambient compositions in which you shall be submerged in the cold sea of nothingness for a walk into the labyrinths of Kadath. The album open with "Ice Fields",a vaporous track with some amazing percussive sounds and spectrums creating a ghastly atmosphere.The album continues with "Night Gaunts" which is really awesome ,so at times reminds me to Halo Manash ,due how the music is evolving,through the use of plates,ritual mantras and ambient elements,the percussive sounds also emerge as a powerful tool in this sonic experience. "moonlight" is a short but beautiful exposition of sounds and ghastly emanations crawling from the deeps of Kadath itself,showing you the path to follow. "The Castle" , intense since the beginning the track itself is a ritual ambient exploration into the hidden veils in Kadath,the percussive elements and strong nature of the track ,make of this one of the best here. the album is really interesting,due it keeps the essence and eclectic nature from start to finish. let's just hear "Throne Of Room" with such ritual invocations,"circle Of Gods" or even the last one "cosmos" with the special guest of K.Novak. without a doubt a great album by Lukasz Grochocki(samples,drums,Chants) , Brian Cramer (Keys,Drums, chants). lets just wait what future bring us with this duo!!

MAREK X.MARCHOFF & DROIN (usa)/(Pol)
" Source Of Vectors " Digi cd 2013
Through this 8th release on the infamous series IYHHH and limited to 444 copies zoharum surpises one more time with one of the best instalations developed until now. this time in the shape of Marek X. Marchoff who is well known by his other project DIFFERENT STATE and Tomasz Kretowski aka DROIN who released its first album "Time To Reconsider" in 2007. This time both creative spirits has joined forces with Tonya Thomas,Maciek Mehring,and Praetorian to create an eclectic and suggestive machine able to alchemicaly deconstrute the diverse phases into a solid corrosive convergence. the release include 6 untitled tracks, coz All the tracks are given symbols relating the process of electricity in different vectors, instead of titles.all of them with the necessary dose of mutational power to keep your attention all the time. The first track open a veil into the psychotic nature of the album ,with an experimental composition with sutil sounds and elements emerging through al the track. The second one is along with almost 16 minutes in which the powers of electricity are mixed with altered psychotic electro acoustic elements creating a powerful track here.the most revelant aspect is how the track is evolving within the minutes emanting all the corrossive nature in all its splendour. The third track is fair an experimental one dressed with percussive elements and diverse electronic sounds,which makes the track and enjoiable trip.The fifth track is the best one for me,the high dose of aesthetic power electronic sounds gathered through a sonic fields transportation with intense moments from start to finish. The sixth track is mostly brillantly,remind me to the work of coil,due the dynamic expressionism released here.note that the album itself is dedicated to peter "sleazy" Christopherson from Coil. The album closest with the 6th track a destructive piece full of corrossive vaporations and ultra suggestive noise elements which are really lethal for a perfect end.The album is released n an ecopack with a postcard insert. for more about this just order this through zoharum recs.
