Kollaps – Mechanical Christ Label: Cold Spring – CSR269CD Format: CD, Album Country: UK Released: 28 May 2019 Style: Industrial
Australian post-industrialists KOLLAPS are a three piece creating a unique brand of primitive noise “intended for degenerates and outsiders”. The bands’ distinctive primordial tones are created using appropriated waste materials like scrap metal, raw plastics and steel plates combined with blistering percussion, bass and vocals. This is no empty “industrial” gesture, for the band this process of creation facilitates the literal use of postmodern society against itself.|
Mechanical Christ, the bands’ sophomore release, is a conceptual continuation of its predecessor Sibling Lovers. This release sees Kollaps further their exploration of the inherent societal sickness of our times, one that manifests itself in the debasement of individual morality. Themes of exploitation, vengeance, drug addiction, paranoia and slave labour are part of a dissonant, inverted morality play. Testament to the bands’ evolving conceptual depth are the overarching themes of love, life and death that offer a sense of shared experience in the discomfort of the universal human experience. Known for their violent and nihilistic stage performances, this recording encapsulates with harsher clarity the visceral confrontation that is Kollaps’ live act.
Mechanical Christ was recorded and mixed over a two-month period at Aviary Studios by Mike Deslandes, and mastered by James Plotkin/Plotkinworks. It is a 36-minute journey into the desperation and lack of resolve that is both the crux of modern social ills and at the very heart of the human condition.
Merzbow – Hermerzaphrodites Label: Old Europa Cafe – OECD 269 Format: 2 × CD, Album, Limited Edition Country: Italy Released: 30 Apr 2019 Style: Noise, Experimental, Ambient
Limited edition of 300 copies. Comes in a six-panel Digipak.
An unusual MERZBOW double CD album.
Two very different CD’s boundedin one unique album:
§ On one disc sounds are more «Ambient Style» with a free piano and many field recordings, far and rumbling rythms and rumours (The Piano Lento ma non Troppo Madness)
§ On other disc sounds are explong deep into «Poly-Rhythmic’s», continuosly beating & popping plus additionall sqeezeing & exploding sounds
(The Pop-Corn Psychedelia), to me this is the soundtrack for a new psychedelic dance.
A different & very intriguing «MERZBOW / HERMAPHRODITIC» sound.
Special «Hermaphriditic» art-work by Lilian Pelizzari Giust.
Six panels digipak full of colours & hermaphroditic images for a complete psychedelic experience.

Digipack artwork basically in the same form of the original but for the first time all lyrics on the booklet are in both : original languages (such as Italian, French, Spanish, Latin ..) and English translations.
