SERRUYS, MATHIEU - on germaine dulac - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
179 SEK
NEW ITEM. Description coming soon. Back in stock!
ALFARMANIA & PROIEKT HAT - mardromd dodsstrom - LP [Tesco]
199 SEK
NEW ITEM. The title tells us a lot of the sound contained herein - heavy pulsating submissive rhythms, manufactory utensils of havoc and warm but sterile synth work with the odd 90's-oozing sampling. You went too deep this time, cleansed and empty the corpse reaches for your throat. I'm happy to hear modern day death industrial is doing so well and delighted to see a continuation of the moss green color scheme from "Make sense"...hail! With two-sided A5 insert.

G*PARK - gour - LP [Tochnit Aleph]
159 SEK
NEW ITEM. Description coming soon.
HUTCHINSON, HAL - mangraft - LP [Urashima]
199 SEK
NEW ITEM. New LP from the UK's premier metal basher Hutchinson! Given the powerful collage art made by Kristian Olsson, which cover the whole release and insert, I thought this would be a trip into total noise mayhem but the four tracks herein actually are quite subdued, sure, there's enough grit and dreadful finesse alright but the sound is pretty overblown overall, not really multilayered. One for the die-hards. Very limited issue, in standard Urashima silver-on-black covers.
KONTINENT - death technologies - LP [Unrest]
189 SEK
NEW ITEM. Very limited vinyl re-issue of an even more limited tape (also on Unrest) - UK power electronics, I would say almost a euro version of Slogun's "The pleasures of death" - thick, oppressive reverberating soundwaves, a lot of samples and buried vocals (which I might add puts me off a bit generally). Part of the new wave of heavy electronics, far removed from the filthy, feedbackdrenched PE that has dominated a while. Proprinted covers with thick, doublesided insert.

***TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK***
AF URSIN - de overkant - LP [La Scie Doree]
179 SEK
Re-edition in new sleeve and vinyl cut. A collection of tracks recorded between 2009-2014. Back to more shorter song-like ones, in his usual slow atmospheric and spectacular mode, some with a krauty touch and others quietly cinematic. A truly rewarding listen! Highest recommendation! Last copy.
AF URSIN - aika - LP [La Scie Doree]
169 SEK
Timo Van Luijk main project with slow, conciously made lofi musique concrete and organic, darker atmospheres. One of my favorite recordings from 2008 in new cover and larger edition. Back in stock.
ALFARMANIA & PROIEKT HAT - astral slaktmask - C43 [Chefsideologen]
69 SEK
All-new recordings from this unholy unit. Slightly different from the earlier LP, primarily due the more "song"-based, shorter tracks here and brighter sound overall, but naturally the rotten atmospheres and rhythms are present as before, now coupled with real factory sounds here and there. Doublesided cover and chrometapes - tip! Postage for the tape is free when ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls. Back in stock!
ALTAR OF FLIES - rorelsen mellan rummen - LP [Jartecknet]
159 SEK
Gustafssons absolute best work to my ears - from cold, distant rumbling and windswept metallic resonances to the Dillo-esque rougher loopings and manipulations. Unmistakably Altar Of Flies - just on another level. Should be a mandatory purchase for anyone into modern post-industrial music. Even some hints to Nocturnal Emissions "Stoneface" or "Spiritflesh" somewhere in there! One of the highlights of 2016.
AMPH - polar / mongol - 12" [Sprachlos Verlag]
99 SEK
Two long slow upbuilding tracks, very well structured and without any clichees in sound. Hard to pin down but features most of what I enjoy these days in more organically working drone and rougher industrial. Will most likely be on my top of 2013 releases. In printed b/w sleeves with insert, 45 rpm vinyl. Back in stock! Last copy.
AMPH / ARV & MILJO - nordiska ljud nr. 1 - LP [Jartecknet]
149 SEK
Very impressive output from Amph once again, this time perhaps a bit more emphasis on lesser sounds and rather stripped, though still conveying that special Amph multi-facetted style, Arv & Miljo offers a hypnotic piece dedicated to the sounds of car motor engines and what comes out of it, completely compelling stuff, derived from synth and field recordings. In folded color covers, with large insert. Back in stock!
AQUA DENTATA - an equine red - C42 [Strange Rules]
79 SEK
First Aqua Dentata release where everything works flawlessly - much like an alliance of Benny Nilsen's early isolationist works as Hazard and static tones (with the right amount of grit) of Coil's Time Machines. There is something very intimate about these synthesized drones and bells, bordering the Aural Hypnox-posse at times. Headphone listening required. Much recommended. Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls.
ARKHE - downstream - C20 [Kafe Kaos]
59 SEK
Full powerhouse death industrial (momentarily still much reminiscent of Proiekt Hat, both in terms of structure and sound) with controlled feedback, no-fi pulses, heavy electronic loops and partially even a slight melodic touch. Slow suffocation during the lifeless motions of time. A much welcome style in the swedish duck pond of today and unarguably his best yet. Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls. Last copy.
ASTOR - lina in nida - LP [Penultimate Press]
189 SEK
Far away from the "close" and homely feel of the earlier works, this new LP comes across as a more electronic venture into a wide array of sonic extremes. Some of the tracks reminds me of the cold and sterile atmospheres of George Lucas' film THX 1138, where other flows freely between the cosmic and/or theatrical side of things. A fine, relaxed but strangely overwhelming album.
B*TONG - prostration before infinity - LP [Silken Tofu]
169 SEK
Although I find the term "experimental" slightly bland these days, it should be the most fitting desciption here. And why should you be interested then? Well, its just a nice calculated and layered album that consists both of microsounds, elements of drone and the use of (often treated) samples. Not far away from some of Dieter Muh's work, albeit utilizing a more digital soundworld. Clear and colored smoky vinyl in b/w covers.
BIG CITY ORCHESTRA - drone gnomes - 10" [Substantia Innominata]
99 SEK
Two long tracks from this legendary US group, while the cover leaves a lot to be asked for this is a stunning, playful work of organic drone which opens the inner eye. First track utilizes mainly percussion, bells and voices, the second one a slower number with organ and tapes. Indeed some trippy stuff! Please email for postage rates when ordering this.
BLADH, MARTIN - umbilical cords - CD [Segerhuva]
49 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls.
BLOD - red light companion - 3LP-BOX [Segerhuva]
299 SEK
Vinyl re-issue mainly of hard to get tapes and compilation tracks in hard color printed box with inserts. Sex noise. Postage - count as 3 LPs.
BLOD - my beloved daughters - CD [Segerhuva]
49 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls.
BLOOD OV THEE CHRIST - master control - CD [Segerhuva]
59 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls. The CD will be sent without jewelcase!
BRANCA, GLENN - lesson no. 1 - 12" + ONE-SIDED LP [Superior Viaduct]
159 SEK
Enjoyable and relatively repetitive and instrumental rock music recorded 1980. A name i've heard several times during the ages but never checked out - something i'm happy I did now. Should be great music in the car should I have a portable vinyl player. Last copy.
BROWNING MUMMERY - obiter scripta - LP [Tesco Archive Documents]
229 SEK
On a backbone of sweeping synths, delayed voices and mechanized loops this re-issue of a 1984 tape oozes of fairly typical for that age, ritualistic post-industrial. Never really piercing, more shrouded in electronic fog with slight pulses here and there hovering in the background. I am thrown back to the times of early C93, Zero Kama but this has a more clear focus on the synths. Sometimes also into softer, dreamy territories but mostly of a hallucinogen kind. Last copy.
BRUITAL ORGASME - experiment in functional background music - LP [Silken Tofu]
169 SEK
Pure electro-acoustic sounds over field recordings and turntablism to blistering noise, parts reminded me of some of Dave Phillips works. Very nicely structured flow of unease, coupled with a slight humourous edge. One of 2015's good finds. This comes highly recommended! In silk screened pvc sleeves. Last copy.
BRUME / OUBLIER ET MOURIR - a year to live - LP [Silken Tofu]
159 SEK
Oublier Et Mourir is pretty light-weight melancholy ambient songs by Anemone Tube-member, I honestly can't speak where this Brume-material fits in his vast catalogue but full of that peculiar psychotic atmosphere. Full color covers and insert, white vinyl.
BURIAL HEX / IRON FIST OF THE SUN - act aeon / grown under english ice - LP [Cold Spring]
129 SEK
BH with ritualistic industrial/ambient and sporadic vocal parts. IFOTS clean sounding power electronics.
BURRIED MACHINE - stoned mirror - 12" [Rockatansky]
149 SEK
My first experience with this Japanese act, far away from harsh noise - first track is made up entirely of one long industrial loop, the sound reminiscing a bit of MB with its muffled echos but without the atmospheric elements. Second track likewise a long loop without further progression except a total downpitch at the end, this one has more of a dungeon feel to it. I am intrigued to investigate further into his catalogue. Tasty pro-cover, looks like a gigantic alien vagina!
CAEN - middlefield - LP [Urashima]
169 SEK
Drone/Tone-project of Mr. Ashworth (Oscillating Innards et. al), dense loops derived from guitar me thinks - appearently material that has surfaced earlier on different US tape labels. In earlier standard Urashima covers, limited issue!
CHALK, ANDREW - ghosts of nakhodka - LP [Faraway Press]
179 SEK
Same title as another, earlier work but this is entirely new tracks. Again, shorter interludes, this time made on monophonic synthesizer alone, ranging from a little cosmic to very down-to-earth. A pleasant surprise! Includes insert and postcard set. Last copy.
CHALK, ANDREW & SCOTT, TOM JAMES - wild flowers - LP [Skire]
169 SEK
Shimmering, delicate piano amidst background floating and gentle strings of a foggy morning, music for the first minutes of the day, heavy on nature romanticist themes and much in line with Andrew's later output. Full color cover.
CHRISTIANSEN, HENNING - op.50 requiem of art (aus "celtic") fluxorum organum II - LP [Penultimate Press]
189 SEK
Description coming soon.
CIRCUIT BREAKER - my descent into capital - LP [Harbinger Sound]
169 SEK
Contemporary UK group with a clear influence from early minimal synth and post punk but spiced up with guitar washes, and not always clinging onto nostalgia. I'm ordinarily not appealed but keep returning. Should be right up all Cabs and Duet Emmos fans' alley?
CLEW OF THESEUS - the death urge - LP [Verlautbarung]
149 SEK
Two longer droning industrial tracks, sometimes akin to some bleak Archon Satani material but more monotonous and organic, without samples. Very good!
CLOAMA - municipality of marionettes - LP [Freak Animal]
149 SEK
Innovative power electronics from Finland without real clichees. In screened white covers. Last copy.
CON-DOM - how welcome is death to i who have nothing more to do but die - LP + ONE-SIDED LP BOX [Tesco]
449 SEK
Mike Dando returns after several years with a new work and a closer look on the slowed down process of dying. I will spare you the details but will just mention I think this is some of his strongest works to date, with a slight departure from the earlier power electronic assaults where focus instead lies on longer tracks with slow upbuilding tension, let alone the anguish of living in the end. The sounds herein often also feels directly related to the theme. Packaged in a sturdy pro-printed box with the one-sided LP having an etching, plus 24-page 12" booklet in color full of lyrics and pictures. Normal postage rates does NOT apply for this item (weighs almost 1 kilo without packaging) - please inquire!
CONSUMER ELECTRONICS - dollhouse songs - LP [Harbinger Sound]
169 SEK
Well, well... i'm sure this one will have both lovers and haters but i'm quite intrigued. The sound itself won't appeal to everybody, despite they've almost ditched the beat-drived stuff. I find myself both amused (in a good way) and nauseous from this digital onslaught and both ferocious and whispered vocal delivery. Never a dull moment actually! Full color sleeve with printed innersleeve incl. all lyrics. Last copy.
CONTAGIOUS ORGASM & TZII - blind shadows - LP [Trips Und Traume]
139 SEK
A special mixture between later day C.O.'s wierd rhythmic and filmic soundscapes and deeper desolate ambient tunes. Modern, good sound naturally! In very nice color covers.
CONTRASTATE - true believer / the 10/40 window - 7" [Dirter]
79 SEK
A relatively short but sweet new single by old time favorites, first side is classic Contrastate-ambient with added piano clangs, bass and singing which in some strange way makes me think of Vangelis "Bladerunner" soundtrack and Jon's repeated and lulling vocals. Second side has fragmentaric soundsnippets, which makes way for a rising dark dream. Both tracks could brood out more, but I keep flipping this so some magic is undoubtedly there. The sound is light, based on a palette unheard of in todays climate. Recommended!
CONTRASTATE - regiment de rapaces - LP [Segerhuva]
129 SEK
This old 90's ritualistic ambient acts best material according to us - originally CD on Staalplaat's Mort Auv Vaxhes-series. Quite a lot of antagonistic vocals and overall anti-war atmospheres.
CORNER, PHILIP - battutosso / bone pulse (and other nature musics) - LP [Ricerca Sonora]
179 SEK
Live recordings from Italy 1989-1997. First track where Corner hits a lamb's thigh-bone for a rhythmic excuse and searches for room acoustics is truly retarded! Other tracks focusses on field recordings of cows' bells, stone scrapings and breathing through flutes.
CROENE, FREDERIK - f.c. me fecit - LP [B.A.A.D.M.]
179 SEK
Three delightful organ works, recorded at the St. Peter's church in Gent/Belgium. Not overly academic, or religiously tinged either for that matter, and on the right side of musical development, i e pretty far from say Mr. Nitsch's droning and minimal arbeiten. Comes very much recommended. In thick, pro-printed covers.
CROENE, FREDERIC & VAN LUIJK, TIMO - voile au vent - LP [La Scie Doree]
159 SEK
Fusion of darker academic pianowork and more musical krauty, organic elements. Should work great to some old silent experimental horror movie. Back in stock. Last copy.
CRUMER, JASON - stare at the devil - LP [Depravity]
199 SEK
Description coming soon. Last copy.
DEATH MAGAZINE 52 - s/t - DLP [Harbinger Sound]
219 SEK
Early 80's UK group involving Mike Dando, all recordings here, both studio and live. Overall a pretty sloppy feel with strange mixing between the metal percussion, half-funky bass lines and samples. Pretty rough sound quality but i'm at least partly enthusiastic, especially when it goes into longer, more monotonous pieces. In pro covers. Last copy.
DEBT OF NATURE - order: spoil the entire state - LP [Harbinger Sound]
159 SEK
A set of mid-80's archival live recordings from this Los Angeles-pack of known names based around the LAFMS scene. Relatively short pieces of spontaneous both noisy and non-noisy, improvised sounds derived from tapes, circuit-bent gear and random found sounds. I'm not ordinarily fond of live recordings most often due to thin and flat sound but I think it works great here. Good 80's feel also on the cover, if you want I can try and make it worn out and you can't tell if its from 2013 or 1993. Last copy.
DEVIATION SOCIAL - practices / demo june-oct. 81 - LP [Dais]
189 SEK
Much needed re-issue of their first demo tape from 1981, originally ridiculously limited to 25 copies. Here in hand stamped cover, labels and insert. The sound here is even more thinly stripped and monotone than later recordings, dripping with bleak unease in that classic early 80's style. A total must for self-annihilists! Last copy.
DEVIATION SOCIAL - tempus / deathwatch "from end to beginning" vol. 2 - LP [Dais]
189 SEK
Second issue of early US bedroom industrial - highly influenced by TG, this LP assembles the first real tape and 7". Partly rhythmic, primitive and rather depressive material with anguished vocals. Main ingredients should be guitar, tapes/samples and drum machine. Grey vinyl in sturdy color cover and large printed informative booklet with lots of pictures and artwork. Last copy.
DICKSSON, G. / BLODVITE - nordiska ljud nr. 2 - LP [Jartecknet]
189 SEK
Very limited split LP between Gustaf Dicksson's unnerving verbal (in swedish) tape loop collages which falls somewhere between En Halvkokt I Folie's silliness and Current 93's early incantations without the obvious religious overtones. Blodvite here does a rather bleak and sordid drone track mostly based around some string instrument, continuing on the minimal path. In folded covers, plus two inserts.
DIETER MUH - stockholm monsters - LP [Bootleg]
119 SEK
Live at Fylkingen/Stockholm 2001. Varies from darker ambient, industrial with samples and rhythms. Bent corners on all copies so a bit cheaper price.
DIETER MUH & DUQUETTE, LON MILO - the call - LP [Haemoccult]
129 SEK
DM softer sounds with DuQuette special intonation and language on side one. Longer live piece on side two, always hard to pin down soundwise but i'm enjoying this a lot!
DILLOWAY, AARON - the beauty bath - LP [Rockatansky]
179 SEK
Japanese import. Some great whistling on this new both darker and more bleak work! Even if there are part here that's very noisy the overall impression is quite subdued. Still heavy on the looping of course and I feel this one is really one of his better efforts. Neat color covers.
DILLOWAY, AARON - modern jester - DLP [Hanson Records]
239 SEK
An impressive affair, all over the place in terms of style from quiet to harsh but always with the loops as base. Takes some time to fully digest but well worth the trouble! Postage - count as 2 LPs. Last copy.
DOGPOP - bleierne zeiten - MLP [Zaetraom]
149 SEK
New material from this side-project of Anenzephalia and Thorofon-members! As the name suggests more into straight-forward pop territory, in the way of some greyish NDW with german vocals, occationally beatoriented minimal electronics. I can hear the traces of early days SPK here but with a sharper sound naturally. Pro-pressed color cover, around 30 minutes playing (playful?) time. Last copy.
DRONE-MIND / MIND-DRONE VOL. 3 - various artists - LP [Drone Records]
139 SEK
Third installment of this ongoing series with four handpicked groups in the...you guessed it...the (more or less) drone-department, from Jim Haynes' tensionfilled and static, humming tones, over to Exit In Grey's emotional daydream guitar drones, further to Kshatriy's more modern (too much reverb) classic dark and a bit cosmic ambient and ending with the french Maninkari-boys' more tribal-induced trance drones.
DRONE-MIND / MIND-DRONE VOL.1 - various artists - LP [Drone Records]
139 SEK
Drone Records first in their new LP series, with four groups (Jarl, Halo Manash, Ubeboet and B*Tong) - shows a lot of the variety in drone music!
DUNCAN, JOHN & O'ROURKE, JIM - yeah - LP [Ideal]
129 SEK
First side recorded 1993, begins very softly but goes back and forth into quite complex, layered heavy ambient pieces in the darker and tensionfilled realm with some shortwave. I needed a few listens on high volume to fully grasp this one but its unmistakingly the ghastly Duncan present here. Flip the side and we have a track recorded live in Tokyo from 2013, with help from Joe Talia and Oren Ambarchi. One long improvised piece with electronics, drums and Duncan's growing desperate mantra. Compelling, snazzy cover. Last copy.
DUNCAN, JOHN / ESPOSITO, MICHAEL / Z'EV - there must be a way across this river / the abject - LP [Fragment Factory]
139 SEK
Very subtle ambiences and processed voices from Duncan suitable for late night listening, digitally processed sounds in the organic, academic ambient vein from Z'ev.
EBOLA DISCO / ROPE SOCIETY - flies for friends - LP [Tesco]
179 SEK
A pairing of two Australian power electronics groups, Ebola Disco offers one long track of free form synth violence and indecipherable vocals, while Rope Society use synth as background but also uses feedback and metal junk to great effect. Both groups pretty far away from the standard much structured German style for example.
EDWIGE - the inconsolable widow thanks all those who consoled her - CD [Segerhuva]
29 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Postage free if ordered with any amount of 12" vinyl.
ELODIE - grisailles - LP [La Scie Doree]
349 SEK
I've had a hard time digesting the path Elodie has mapped out on their last recordings as I think were are too directionless, but on this latest work the five pieces engraved puts the clarinet, flute and whispered voices a bit more in the forefront with a slight minimal result. Best is the magnificent last and long track which evokes the same dreamy, countryside flair that parts of the Ralf & Florian LP contains. Packaged in a handmade, thick structured sleeve with artprint attached to the front, hence the price.
ELODIE - le manteau d'etoiles - LP [Faraway Press]
179 SEK
Description coming soon.
ELODIE - miniatures persanes - LP [La Scie Doree]
169 SEK
Another fullength work dedicated to ancient illustration, two long enigmatic tracks full of interfering wind instruments and synths into a rich and detailed psychedelic mesh with a slight eastern tinge. The flip offering more straight sound with additional bass and guitar. Classy presentation as always from the La Scie Doree label.
ELODIE - traces ephemeres - LP [La Scie Doree]
169 SEK
Collaboration project between Andrew Chalk and Timo Van Luijk. Short snippets of delicate real instrumentation in form of guitar, bass, flutes, percussion and synth with a slight jazzy flavour overall. Alters between dreamlike mellowness and more concrete group recordings. Not really like anything I have heard before actually!
ELODIE - echos pastoraux - LP [La Scie Doree]
179 SEK
Timo Van Luijk and Andrew Chalk collaboration. Partly quite fragmentary short pieces of shimmering ambiences but also some little longer pieces in more monotone fashion. Focus shifts fast so entertainment is retained throughout. Restock.
ENHET FOR FRI MUSIK - lat oss vada genom all angslan tillsammans - LP [Forlag For Fri Musik]
149 SEK
This LP caught me a bit off guard, a continuous flow of disconnected snippets made out of simple guitar melodies, some saxophone, spoken word and the usual tapehum maybe Mr. Sewer is guilty of? Parts of it reminds me of early outdoor Trad, Gras Och Stenar stuff, but rather different in atmosphere. Close to ordinary pop music sometimes but mostly in the middle, between pure experimentalism and the definable. Cover with a very homemade feel. Back in stock. Last copy.
ENKLAV - 2 - LP [Jartecknet]
149 SEK
Continuing in the same vein as the first LP on Wendy. It's all about rough tape loops here, mate! Stay away if you don't like monotony. In very minimalistic b/w covers.
ENVENOMIST - chariots - LP [Segerhuva]
119 SEK
Four tracks of unsettling synthworks with an apocalyptic touch. In one of my favorite Segerhuva-covers!
ETANT DONNES - royaume / aimant + aimant - - LP [Penultimate Press]
189 SEK
Description coming soon.
ETANT DONNES - aurore - LP [Penultimate Press]
189 SEK
Another name I did not look into in the 90's besides their splendid collaboration work with Michael Gira - here comes a welcome vinyl re-issue of the first part of a trilogy based around the use of field recordings and whispered French vocals. The intimate tone and surprising mixing makes this album a truly unsettling work worthy of your full attention! A ghastly test of the endurance. Both outer and inner sleeves in color.
EVIL MOISTURE - goo - LP [Blossoming Noise]
129 SEK
More cut-up madness from Mr. Bolus, not much harsh noise in sight here, mostly an endless stream of slightly playful, chopped up noises and a lot of starts/stops. However, the pacing is quite calm and not very layered so it's easy to pay attention. Last copy.
FISH FROM TAHITI - decal baby - LP [Harbinger Sound]

FORZA ALBINO - black dog - 12" [Freak Animal]

FOSSIL AEROSOL MINING PROJECT - the day 1982 contaminated 1971 - LP [Helen Scarsdale Agency]
179 SEK
Description coming soon.
FUCHS, LIMPE, HEEMANN, CHRISTOPH & VAN LUIJK, TIMO - macchia forest - LP [Streamline]
169 SEK
An organic audio forest of analogue electronics and electro-acoustic sounds, the both playful and twisted, dark nature of these sounds work very well together. I think Fuchs' sounds are a bit loud in the mix in some parts but maybe its the most often surprising element of her sounds. A very satisfying recording if you're open enough and not allergic to high-brow stuff. Recommended! Last copy.
GENDREAU, MICHAEL / LOPEZ, FRANCISCO - drowning / untitled #185 - LP [CIP]
139 SEK
Two pieces made from the glory of vinyl crackle, static and run out grooves, greatly textured complete with motor hummings and mic'ed driving belts. High volume required for full effect. In black disco-sleeves and insert.
GENOCIDE ORGAN - obituary of the americas - LP [Tesco]
219 SEK
A strong new outburst from the ever-going G.O. We would suggest this is a slight noisier album than the last but still all classic movements like samples and heavy synth buzzing are there, as is the obvious comparisons with Anenzephalia and Ke/Hil. Most tracks are driven forward not by any clear rhythm but deep pulse bass and the vocals. One of those albums whose strength not lies in a fast enjoyable ejaculation but a long term stimulation. Last copy.
GRIM - orgasm - LP [Tesco]
209 SEK
Despite a quite hideous up-beat track on face one, this new offering from Japan's Grim is a DIFFERENT listen, bordering between traditional rhythmic industrial music and a more melodic outlook, with the special use of vocals. Up and down in quality but keeping my ear open throughout despite the "cult"-yapping hordes heed-calls. WHITE vinyl version. Last copy.
GRIM - orgasm - LP [Tesco]
199 SEK
Despite a quite hideous up-beat track on face one, this new offering from Japan's Grim is a DIFFERENT listen, bordering between traditional rhythmic industrial music and a more melodic outlook, with the special use of vocals. Up and down in quality but keeping my ear open throughout despite the "cult"-yapping hordes heed-calls. BLACK vinyl version. Last copy.
GRUNT - myth of blood - LP [Freak Animal]
169 SEK
New studiowork from Mr. Aspa - ten shorter, brutal tracks with lots of feedback, some clearly structured where the vocals and audible lyrics leads the way. Shows quite a lot of variety throughout, good mix between overt aggression and calculated despair. Pro-pressed covers with CD-size booklet inside.
GUNK - bird / less - 12" [Self released]
159 SEK
Relatively new finnish four-piece group, with self released and very limited (100 copies) twelve-inch, offering another take on pure loud junk metal noisy resonance and gong-muzak. Sounds largely improvised to these ears, with great layering and feel also for quietness to satisfying effect. Thirty minutes at 45 RPM, in b/w discosleeves plus two large inserts.

HAARE - meditations - LP [Heavy Meditation]
199 SEK
Dedicated to the Taj Mahal Travellers, this work recorded in 2005 and released now takes a dive into subterranean depths - I don't think i've heard Haare this DARK and unsettling before, approaching classic "Heresy"-territory no doubt. The muddy sound palette and low volume cut only adds in earthy flavour. In folded card board, silkscreened and adequate cover art. Very limited edition and strongly recommended.

HEEMANN, CHRISTOPH - the rings of saturn - CLEAR LP [Robot Records]
179 SEK
Mostly quite unprocessed field recordings and far away from his other dronebased works, but leaves a lot for your imagination, in a good way.
HEINZ HOPF - ultra primitiv - C38 [Team Boro Tapes]
69 SEK
Tape version of the now sold out LP! Spiced up harsh noise straight outta Gamlestaden! Eight tracks with perfect lengths and own identity. Dense and powerful action, rough and ready to chew. Instant happy listening.
HELLVETE - sint-denijs - LP [Blackest Rainbow]
169 SEK
More of a uplifting, long stretched-out Nangijala-vibe to this album than the earlier more darker ritualistic, shorter poems. Streamlined, minimalistic and droning overlapped, sustained organ tones and some additional instruments is the order for the day. Factorymade b/w covers and heavy vinyl.

29 SEK
Old Segerhuva stock now available here! Please ask regarding postage rates.
HAKKI - tension - C40 [Kaukana Vayjyy Ambient]
59 SEK
Finn-meisters Mr. Umpio and Jaakko Vanhala collaboration work doing "unpolished electroacoustic noise", my impressions are on to a more straight line, harsher and growing G*Park? Staying on the safe side of noise, never piercing or full frontal but perhaps as expected, the focus here lies on texture, and, naturally, TENSION... Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls.
HANDER SOM VARDAR - aristokrat - LP [Jartecknet]
169 SEK
First fullength vinyl from this Stockholm aficionado. Six tracks where I sense different styles and moods, mostly rooted in the Swedish lo-fi tapeloop tradition though. I tend to think the more rumbling, layered industrial-tinged songs works best, whereas some of the other synth-based ones just seems to lack some extra punch and javlaranamma. Cover in usual Jartecknet minimal style with Mr. Handsome on the front.
HOGA NORD - various artists - LP [Segerhuva]
119 SEK
Well executed compilation album with four swedish groups (Bocksholm, Dusa, Niellerande Fallibilisthorstar and Vartgard). Pretty far from each other soundwise but works very well together. Absolute last copies!
IDEA FIRE COMPANY - the laboratory ep - 7" [I Dischi Del Barone]
69 SEK
Two tracks (in reality one long track?) of monotone and stripped down synthwork, very chilling material quite reminiscent of Andrew Chalk's "Over the edges", except that one had a guitar as sole ingredient. First release on RTB-Matthias new seven-inch label. Play loud. Postage as 2 tapes, no additional postage needed when ordering 1, 2 or 4-6 vinyls at the same time.
IDEALISM (VOLUME ONE) - various artists - LP [Ideal Recordings]

New compilation LP on Ideal with the likes of Altar Of Flies, Frederikke Hoffmeier, Riccardo Mazza (Lettera 22) and Peder Mannerfelt. More elaborate description coming up! Last copy.
IN CAMERA - frampton comes alive - LP [La Scie Doree]
159 SEK
Christoph Heemann and Timo Van Luijk duo. Mainly new work presented here, which feels more 70's overall in terms of sound and stoned atmosphere, involving more different kinds of sources as flute and impeccable field recordings beneath. Still in a way a bit more disharmonic than earlier stuff! Back in stock. Last copy.
IN CAMERA - rumours - LP [Dom Bartwuchs]
159 SEK
LP-re-issue of material from a 2006 VPRO radio session that originally came with some copies of the "Open air" CD on Robot Records. Despite the Fleetwood Mac reference, very much akin to some of Mirror's earlier material here, which means very static, dark drone, in a good way. Last copy.

Absolutely massive and muddy destruction in the first part of side one, pretty weak digital experimental tracks and good long live track on side b. In luxury silkscreened covers and booklet with pictures and texts.
INCAPACITANTS / SEWER ELECTION - mental derivatives / shining obsession - 12" [Segerhuva]
99 SEK
Was originally intended as a 10" but was impossible to cut due extreme frequencies. Incapacitants in overloaded, chaotic mode and Sewer Election with wallish harsh noise.
INTROVERTED FORMULA - various artists - DLP [Jartecknet]
239 SEK
One side each of Altar Of Flies, Blodvite, Elisha Morningstar and Sewer Election collaborating with Anders Dahl. Overall lots of tape manipulation and field recordings to explore. AOF on a dark and twisted route, Blodvite industrial interference loops, EM lofi reel-to-reel loops and SE w/ AD drones with fitting field recordings. In usual Jartecknet minimal outer sleeve, with two large doublesided inserts, one for each side of the set.
IRGUN Z'WAI LEUMI - klirrfaktor - LP [Verlautbarung]
139 SEK
First release on the German Verlautbarung label. One looong track of slow but always evolving bleak feedbackbased industrial. Best album of 2008!
IRM - indications of nigredo - 12" [Segerhuva]
99 SEK
Monotone and almost catchy, long, massive drone with unforgettable vocals on side one, side two more subdued in style and more focus on atmosphere. Damn great!
IRON FIST OF THE SUN - tears royal - LP (Unrest Productions)
139 SEK
Detailed and focused modern sounding (no, not digital) and intense industrial electronics, quite original stuff with lots of atmospheres to delve into and sporadic harsh vocals. Classy covers that suit the music very well.
ISOMER - three kestrels - LP [Tesco]
199 SEK
Long time Tesco collaborator, previously into darker ambient structures, this time into harsher territory, not unlike Genocide Organ period around "Mind control" or Ex.Order. Still, some of the tracks featured does have a different edge most based on bleaker synth drones and vocals. In classy colored reverse board covers.
JACKMAN, VIKKI & CHALK, ANDREW & REBILLY, JEAN-NOEL - a paper doll's whisper of spring - LP [Faraway Press]
179 SEK
While relying a bit too much on the floating synthesizer sounds for my personal taste, this new album by the Faraway Press staff and a frenchman shows their ability to weave different sorrowful moods into a very special dreamlike state with delicate electronic haze. Music for staying in bed all day, naturally. As always, intriguing package-wise.

KALLABRIS - music for very simple objects - 10" [Substantia Innominata]
99 SEK
Short sequences of digitally manipulated field recordings and objects. Not really drone per se, and far away from their early works, but works pretty well in this format, length and also the steady flow of new impressions. One for the sound-fanatics.

KAVAL - zee van gedachten - LP [Vrystaete]
179 SEK
First release on this new Enfant Terrible-sister label Vrystaete from the Netherlands, on the more psych-tinged tracks not unlike a slightly synthesized Hellvete, others odd old-style electronic ambient. Quite enjoyed this actually! Small edition in screenprinted artprint cover, handstamped labels, with insert.
KE/HIL - zone 0 - LP [Tesco]
189 SEK
Small restock, now on white vinyl. New fullenght album from previous Meisters Anenzephalia, a strong thematic record around the city of Mannheim. A more complex and modern listen compared to the first album, fanatics will however feel familiar in their analog soundworld. Lesser use of vocals here too if memory serves me right. Good one!

KIRKEGAARD, JACOB - 40 days of silence - LP [Von Archives]
169 SEK
Appearently a soundtrack to an Uzbek movie, file this under glacial ambience, six cuts with quite different character. A lot of reverb throughout but always staying on the right track, some tracks more pure darker sub bass drone in the vein of Thomas Koner, others more harmonic and desolate.
KLEISTWAHR - arsonicide - LP [Harbinger Sound]
149 SEK
Second re-issue of another old '83 Broken Flag tape, another of Mundy's solo projects, very primitive, crude and quite one-dimensional synthnoise and early PE-style vocals.
KNAEKKEDE STEMMER - forste portraet (et hult menneske) - LP [Jartecknet]
159 SEK
First LP from this post-Alleypisser project - two sidelong tracks based on droning synthesizer, sparse percussive elements and low metal screech. While the a-side is good, things really shine on side b. Quite muffled sound overall - another great issue on Jartecknet. In folded b/w covers, plus insert. Back in stock!
KNURL - reactance - LP [Wintage]

KSIEZYC - rabbit eclipse - LP [Penultimate Press]
179 SEK
A perfect fitting soundtrack to this snowy November evening in Stockholm, dare I say a more professional outlook now after the 20 year hiatus (?) and so the dated keyboard sounds has been derailed in favor of a still playful but orchestral (instrument) approach. While one may miss the slightly naive manners on the first album, the length pieces here expands in richness. The clarinet stays on the right margin, thank you. Thick vinyl in companionable printed outer- and innersleeves.
KSIEZYC - s/t - LP [Penultimate Press]
179 SEK
Second vinyl re-issue of this Polish acts first and only fullength recording from early 90's, fairy tale music with medieval touch with female vocals and keyboards, slight cheesy warning partly but still holds a good atmosphere. In thick gatefold and printed innersleeve plus white vinyl.

LAST DOMINION LOST - snowdrops from a curate's garden - LP [The Epicurean]
179 SEK
A live recording from 2011 with all unreleased tracks, quite an original brand of industrial music rarely heard today with slow rhythms, metallic percussion and twisted, hypnotic electronics. Up and down a bit qualitywise, but the better tracks more than makes up for it. Packaged in two doublesided LP-sized papers, with postcard. Last copy.

MAEROR TRI - hypnotikum I - LP [Soleilmoon]

Proud to have this in stock again - sounds used as backing tapes for liveshows at the time, most impressive mix of archaic, rhythmic industrial leanings with bleak, desolate guitar washes. Parts not unlike some of Proiekt Hat's first LP, surprisingly.

Has been compared to some old Panasonic-material (some say Muslimgauze more ambient material meets Anenzephalia without vocals), minimal electronics made from one MS10 and one MS20 synth naturally! One of this years very good newcomers for me personally. All sidelong tracks with impressive soundquality, from bleeps to slow upbuilding rhythmic material. Last copy.

NOVY SVET - doce - LP [Kill Shaman]

A collection of twelve songs from different albums and compilations, some unreleased. A good introduction to this now more or less defunct group, which definitely shows their diversity.
NOVY SVET / GERMAN ARMY - s/t - 7" [Tourette]
79 SEK
New NS track from 2014, surprisingly uplifting modern sound with Weber's unmistakable voice. GA does three short tracks of great dark and experimental 80s-tinged electro. Email for postage rates!

189 SEK
Matteo Castro's new project with Giovanni Donadini from Ottaven, both working with tape recorders, playing with tempo and mechanized loops. Not the dustiness often coupled to tape works but actually quite clear sounding. This is very active music, with hints both to both traditional tape works and fucked up idm techno, without any obvious rhythms. Color cover.

RLW - funeral parties - LP [Musica Moderna]
169 SEK
I wrote somewhere else this sounds like early Current 93 a la "Imperium" totally re-messed by an all-digital Nurse With Wound, happy-go-lucky on fast editing techniques. The leisure-tempo, occationally interrupted by digital glitches and microsounds of increased/decreased volume, does not really make me think of traditional funeral music (whatever that is?) but makes a contradictory and humourous aura surround the pieces. A fascinating record I (oddly enough) return to. Minimal artwork.

179 SEK
Fantastic vinyl pressing with hydrophone recordings of singing bowls filled with water, then multitracked and edited digitally, great outcome, not really meditative stuff but something to really dive deep in.
SEATTLE PHONOGRAPHERS UNION - building 27 WNP-5 - LP [Prefecture Music]
179 SEK
I'm trying hard not to compare this to the Curfew Recordings of old, but really, this is actually better. Improvisations with a library of unedited field recordings in two separate large spaces for full reverberation effect. In gatefold color cover with pictures from the recording sites plus printed innersleeve. Very much recommended!
SEMILANCEATA - amsvartne - LP [Darker Than Black]
179 SEK
First LP appearance of this Swedish project, known from last years "Sjalablomster" compilation on Hibiskofon. One long track on each side, first in the darker ambient vein with field recording details, somehow reminds me a bit of Ain Soph's earlier stuff but with a distinct rural touch and without the vocals. Second side an entirely different affair but equally dark, mostly based around treated acoustic guitar and quiet drumming. Highly effective! In pro-printed both inner- and outersleeve.
SEWER ELECTION - nara - LP [Jartecknet]
149 SEK
New LP from Dan Johanssons main project, again a step forward into even more minimal approach with long ringing high pitched tones and sparse field recordings documenting from what I gather personal events and close-by sounds. Upon initial listens it does not really grip me as some earlier works but I think this will take time to fully grasp. In likewise minimal packaging, but including large double sided inlay with pictures and texts.

SHREDDED NERVE - in the shadow of what never was - LP [Chondritic Sound]
199 SEK
First LP from this relatively new US act, first side comprised of three parts which flows between reverberating, concrete loops, chugging static synth and airy tones plus feedback. The flip has four tracks of varying intensity and holds adulterous kinship to both Japan's S*Core and unrelenting swedish tape noise, but still with its own identity. Recommended. In golden and printed black jackets, with insert and download coupon.

119 SEK

SKIN AREA & JARL - la petite mort - LP [Malignant]
189 SEK
Fantastic new collaboration between these three lads from Norrkoping, surely known among you. All the usual sounds are there, screeching violins, ringing drones and sparse synth, all bubbling with tension and intense layering. A truly unsettling work in surreal atmospheric music around the theme of masturbation so just unzip your trousers and away you go. In pro-pressed sleeves plus 13 delightful individual thick A4 color prints. Please count as two LPs regarding shipping. Few copies in stock!
SMALL CRUEL PARTY - unroof the house of the fishes - LP [Harbinger Sound]
169 SEK
One of those G.R.O.S.S. tapes I didn't want to spend a fortune on so the Harbinger vinyl re-issue came in handy! Sounds like some alien trapped in a hangar trying to speak with whales somewhere deep in the ocean on side A, Ransone doing his version of The New Blockaders on the other. Lots of shrieking metal there, but nowhere aggressive. As usual, completely out of this world and one of those artists I will never fully understand but follow categorically. Newly designed cover and innersleeve, in color.

Scott Foust, Frans De Waard and Mike Popovich collaboration project, said to be influenced by Dome this time and somewhat incorporates both playfulness, gloom and skew. Synthesizer swirl, discrete bass lines and percussive elements dominates the first side, whereas the other one is less about pop-approach and clear structure, feels more improvised. I'm thinking one should see the front cover in a loaded context, on a beach somewhere all down and out... I could definitely smoke a fag to this in a live environment! Sexy transparent, green vinyl.
TOY BIZARRE / EMERGE - s/t - LP [Attenuation Circuit]
179 SEK
Kind of a extended sister-follow-up to the Stein-compilation released earlier on Verlautbarung, two fellow Drone Records artists treating field recordings inside some French mines. Full of crunchy blast and concrete sounds, partly quite lightless subterranean cavern-drone. Always busy, highly engaging stuff - tip! Just a few copies available.
TREPANERINGSRITUALEN / BODY CARGO - s/t - LP [Autarkeia]
219 SEK
Newly released split vinyl with TRP in a more sombre-syrupy, archaic mode with less vocal treats but rest assured, still digging deep in the occult mud. Actually at times not too far from the atmospheres invoked on the Etant Donnes and Michael Gira collaboration mentioned elsewhere in this list. I have not encountered BC before so I can't speak for how this material compares with the rest but this is heavily layered industrial and despite being labelled "dirty and lo-fi", to me quite clean sounding with heavily processed vocals and samples. Rather pricey yes, don't blame me - however heavy, clear vinyl in pro-printed thick brown cardboard sleeves.
TRERIKSROSET - heteronormativ musik for att starka medelklassens sjalvbild - LP [Second Sleep]
169 SEK
First fullength vinyl of this notorious act, actually a re-release of a quite limited cassette from 2014. It's not so often nowadays I put on harsh noise but when I do, it IS stuff like this, where you can truly sense Carlssons' incarnated ecstasy. A hectic, purging and snorting hell of a ride. In thick pro-printed b/w sleeves with usual SS collagework, plus satisfactory brown innersleeve. BUY OR DIE. Color poster made by Mr. Carlsson himself included in all copies bought from here! Last copy.
TRICOLI, VALERIO - vixit - LP [Second Sleep]
189 SEK
Two long tracks of advanced multichannel electroacoustic vortex, derived from tape treatments and electronic sounds that are processed digitally to create a narrative but abstract landscape taking full use of the soundspectrum. I'm not immediately sucked in as many of the sounds don't seem to be stuck for too long, so the droning moments here are kept at minimum. Still, there's a contemplative feel overall at times that facilitate subconcious travel. In b/w printed both inner and outer sleeve.
TROUM / CLOSING THE ETERNITY WITH AD LUX TENEBRAE - dilo / scent of mires - 12" [Vegvisir]
139 SEK
Music inspired by the atmosphere of swamps and marshes, Troum is back in good form here with a long, bleak and hollow track. The two russian groups collaborating on the flip offers dark, shamanistic drones with large focus on digeridoo, flutes, bells and delicate percussion. Beautiful full color cover, only black vinyl version left now, sorry.
ULTRA FUCK - sex at the maly trostenets - LP [Jartecknet]
159 SEK
Remastered vinyl re-issue of another Dan Johansson project of dry and rather minimal rugged tape loop industrial. Cold and effective stuff! Back in stock.

Description coming soon. Last copy.
VAN LUIJK, TIMO & VANDERSTRAETEN, KRIS - costa del luna - LP [La Scie Doree]
159 SEK
Could well be 90's NWW but without the funny elements. Just a improvised and slow moving continuation of quiet sounds. In extremely nice double side (!) printed covers. Back in stock.

VARROPAS - s/t - LP [Ikuisuus / Hyster Tapes]
149 SEK
I'm not really acquainted with the Finnish guitar/improv/lofi dronescene but this LP was a welcome surprise. Lots of cheap synth loops and treated guitars here with additional rhytmic clangs and noises. A thorough krauty (god, I hate that term), calm and hypnotic feel and suitable for late night listening.
VERTONEN - pont respiration - C30 [Dokuro]
59 SEK
Processed field recordings from under a bridge, a bit like drones made out of resonating metal and a fitting picture for a decaying industrial era. Not unlike Jarls' early sound world but with a less synthetic edge and looser structures. Postage free of charge when ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls.
VERTONEN - fait a la machine - PIC LP + CD-R [CIP / Ratskin]
179 SEK
This is an entirely different story than the LP below - here we have Mr. Edwards in full Vivenza-mode, all recordings of real machinery and hard to tell if they are loops of sound or just the elegance of monotony, lots of loud clatter masterly mixed for that submissive effect. Just the right length on the eight tracks on the LP. The accompanying CD-R with one long 60-minute track lays focus on silent and dronelike machinery sounds.
VERTONEN - 11° 22.4'N 142° 35.5' / HACE/26,250'E - LP [CIP / Misanthropic Agenda]
149 SEK
One of the highlights of 2013 so far for sure! A strong thematic album working around two extreme locations on earth. Two long tracks of very impressive editing and timing, stemming mostly from a Polivoks synthesizer this LP conjures a frightening experience in deep, evolving industrial-tinged drone. Delicious tip-on jackets with special triangular insert. Restock, and a bit better price this time!
VERTONEN / 16 BITCH PILE-UP - s/t - LP [What We Do Is Secret]
139 SEK
Managed to snag some copies of this split LP - Vertonen is here in a varied mood between synth + effect explorations and half darker dronings, 16 Bitch Pile-Up presents a live recording from 2007 with one long track of quite dark experimental cut-up murk evolving more into noisy territories and pulse.
VIPCANCRO - gamma - LP [Lisca]
169 SEK
Decription coming soon.
VIVENZA - fondements bruitistes 1 - LP [Rotorelief]
199 SEK
Tracks recorded from 1984-86 - now on vinyl with unreleased extra tracks. First track is total KILLER, and the rest just pure gold too! Submit to the master of pure machine sounds. Part of the industrial archive from France release series on Rotorelief.
VIVENZA - fondements bruitistes 2 - LP [Rotorelief]
199 SEK
Tracks recorded from 1984-86 - now on vinyl with unreleased extra tracks. This second release shows a bit more restrained and darker feel than the first one, and equally satisfactory! Part of the industrial archive from France release series on Rotorelief.
VOGEL, MICHEL & CORNER, PHILIP & NEVILLE, PHOEBE - musiques de ailes / winged music - LP [Ricerca Sonora]
179 SEK
Satisfying live recordings from Paris in 1999. Large focus on small steel bell sounds and to a lesser degree gongs which flows out in room resonance. Packaged in color covers including two inserts.
VOICE OF EYE - anthology one: 1989-91 - DLP [Vinyl On Demand]
249 SEK
Early material from out-of-print tapes. Rougher in nature, and you can actually hear traces of TG in some places and overall not the same focus on reverb as later works. Postage - count as 2 LPs. Last copy.
VOLTIGEURS - carrion - LP [Second Layer]
119 SEK
New Skullflower side-project. I can't really tell what separates this from the mothermonicker and frankly this motionless material does not give me much at all. On nice golden vinyl anyway!
VON HAUSSWOLFF, CARL MICHAEL - matter transfer - LP [Ideal]
119 SEK
One for the pure and minimal tone freaks and pretty hard to endure due almost non-existant evolving throughout. Got a nice feel of old horror movie, though not in the way you perhaps think. Appearently recorded in connection with an exhibition in 2006. Last copy.
VROMB - jeux de terre - DLP [Ant-Zen]
159 SEK
Vinyl re-issue of the old Tesco CD - quite organic and well composed industrial music with that good 90's touch and interesting insect theme which reflects in the music. To taste - as they say!

ZEH, JASON - a vacant lot to be in - LP [CIP]
129 SEK
Total tape obliteration on this great new US find! Full of hiss and mangling spread on two long tracks, sometimes bordering on harsh noise but mostly really gritty drone - lofi, yes of course! In silkscreened back sleeve with a mounted risography image on the front. A few copies back in stock, now with a better price!
ATTESTUPA - vattnet drog sig tillbaka, stenarna blev synliga - LP [Jartecknet]
159 SEK
Not much left here from the earlier LPs, well I for one don't mind, I wasn't too fond of them anyway. But this I enjoy A LOT. If the first vinyls dealt with living conditions and to some extent were quite down to earth, this has an almost dehumanised and dreamlike touch, stripped of any "musical" elements. While the depressive outlook may be intact, this new venture delves deeper into full scale bleakness. Modest but still challenging sacral tape manipulations. One of the highlights so far into 2015 for me but will maybe not satisfy their more "rock-oriented" aficionados. B/w covers with several accentuating inserts. Back in stock.
ATTESTUPA - musik for tomma rum - LP [Jartecknet]
159 SEK
New recordings from the Gothenburg all-star team in classy covers. Musically back and forth between the earlier slow, depressive "rock"-mode with synthmelodies(big focus here)/percussion/guitar/bass/vocals and their respective outlook with a lot of raw tape manipulation work. A lot more coherent to these ears than earlier LPs. Back in stock!
ODEGARD, WAGNER - ur tornedjupen - C30 [Hibiskofon]
59 SEK
A pompous horn introduction leads into fragmentary interludes and intertwining loops of piano and harmonium of both the darker and solitary kind, with the occational considered sample. Kind of how I would have liked Mortiis to sound in the mid 90's. Packaged in an pasted on o-card, plus insert. Postage free if ordered with 1, 2 or 4-7 vinyls. Back in stock!
