I've long been a supporter of everything that NSN puts out, and after a lengthy hiatus, the label is finally back with two new tapes, along with a release party early next week.

the first is "hymnes à la déroute," from trup.

raw, scathing black metal, and it's really great.

the album is available on bandcamp, but obviously I highly recommend and encourage you to buy the physical version.

the second is "devoir. génétique. violence. hiérarchie," from un regard froid.

brutal power electronics.

a video preview of one track is available here:

it is awesome, both sonically and visually.

and if you're in montreal on 5/31, swing by the release party, have a few beers, and meet the artists.

bottom line: buy these tapes as soon as they're available.

2. They Died On A Beautiful Day
3. How Shadow

5. It Was A Short Funeral
6. Metamorph (Intrinsic Action Cover)

interesting power electronics from climax denial, courtesy of bacteria field.

huge variety of tones and textures here...vocals, melodies, noise, some ambience...this one pretty much runs the gamut.

really great stuff.

copies are still available from the label via the link below.

and while I'd normally tell you all to check out the rest of bacteria field's offerings, this actually appears to be the only release that isn't sold, yeah, there you go.

but obviously keep an eye on that storefront and don't hesitate to grab any new releases as they become available.

(buy a copy from bacteria field.)

don't judge me, I couldn't resist posting this.

first tollund men full-length, courtesy of bleak environment.

I'm glad these guys waited out the darkwave fad before releasing a full-length...they were always one of the best (along with body of light), and with a less-cluttered landscape today than, oh, say, two years ago, this album stands out even more.

that's not to say it couldn't stand out in that more crowded marketplace...but the moods, rhythms, and melodies here are so great that I'm glad it doesn't risk getting lost in the shuffle.

copies of this one are long gone...I think it took a matter of hours...and so is everything else,, yeah, keep an eye on discogs.

(everything is obviously sold out.)
