    Except “Eschatology” composed by Dave Phillips

    Satori, continuing a project first started in the 1980’s founding member Dave Kirby brings an onslaught of industrial soundscapes, pounding drums and a dystopian vision of a world commited to destroying itself.
    Comprising a mixture of harsh noise and power electronics with a harder and heavier percussive beat than before Satori enter 2018 with a collection of new songs “Dispossession” based on the physical and mental disconnect facing everyone in the modern world. A constant pervasive undercurrent of violence, the feeling of a society on the brink of a total meltdown and the fears and torments of the powerless individual.

    Lorenzo Abattoir is an Italian-based noise artist and sound engineer from Torino. His work takes shape in a context of underground extreme noise music to become accessible through projects related to sound art. “The sound of chaos merging with order, where every detail and nuance seems to be carefully regulated and controlled”.

    Style: Dark Ambient, Industrial

    Unveiled, the verge of the silence, the voice of the shadow; the cynosure of the psyche is trembling for the essential breath. A subliminal reborn of invisible light strikes the eyes as the underpass appears in the essence and escarps into the esoteric realm of the source of life. A subliminal summon from disappearing heart enthralls the wind of loneliness. Lost spirit leaves deep traces behind as the path is revealing. Circle within circle the lingering path transubstantiates ostensibly, into a revolving contemplation.

    ‘Enthralled by the Wind of Loneliness’, the second CD album by raison d’être, was originally released in 1994 by Cold Meat Industry. It is now available as a reduxed and enhanced CD album.

  • Atomine Elektrine ‎– Laniakea

    Label: Wrotycz Records ‎– WRT 023, Wrotycz Records ‎– WRT023
    Format: CD, Album
    Country: Poland
    Released: 09 Oct 2015
    Style:  Ambient, Berlin-School, Experimental

    The word Laniakea means the immeasurable heaven: deep, spacious, dark and ostensibly emtpy but still full of energy, matter, structures and bright objects. The same words can be said about the sound on the new studio album by Atomine Elektrine. Further on, the ‘Laniakea’ album is also characterized by molecular reactions, eroding particles, nuclear fractals, diffused lightwaves and multiversed orbits. Old fashioned modular analogue electronic synthesis combined with modern digital processing is the gravitational focal point on ‘Laniakea’. The tracks have mainly sequencer driven narratives with ambient layers of both classic retro styled elements and advanced processed novel sounds.

    The origin of the ‘Laniakea’ album is based on two fundamental occurrences: The definition of the galaxy supercluster Laniakea in 2014 and the decease of the Tangerine Dream mastermind Edgar Froese in 2015. ‘Laniakea’ is simply a homage to the vastness of space and a eulogy to the kosmische musik that appeared in the early 1970’s.

    Three bonus tracks (sketches) are included on the CD version (duration 76 minutes) compared to the digital download album (duration 61 minutes). Comes in a 6-panel digipak sleeve with original art by Hypsis (hypsis.net).

    Atomine Elektrine is a side project of Peter Andersson, most known from the dark ambient industrial project raison d’être, with thematic interest in the vast space but also in the smaller world of atoms. It is named after a nuclear power plant and is in part inspired by the electronic space music of the 70’s. Peter Andersson, let out his version of this musical direction in the beginning of 1992, and since then has been expressed on a number of albums, for instance ‘Archimetrical Universe’ (1999), ‘Nebulous’ (2007) and ‘The Deep Invisible’ (2008).

    Bonus tracks (CD only):

    1. Achernar
    2. Acamar
    3. Zeta Normae
