    The Lustmord project started when Brian Williams was assisting the seminal industrial ensemble SPK in the early ’80s when that project was at its most caustic. In those early days Lustmord was often the duo of Brian Williams (often credited as B. Lustmord) and John Murphy. Later Lustmord increasingly became a solo project.

    First Human Ferro – Heterodox
    Label: Old Captain – OCCD17, Gradual Hate Records – GH 128 CD
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition
    Country: Ukraine
    Released: Apr 2016
    Style: Dark Ambient

    Old Captain’s owner, Olegh Kolyada, fights the sea and presents his Lost Generation victory in defeat. “Heterodox” is a dark ambient album born of the sound and the fury with heroes lonely and mad. A sparse, straightforward yet emotionally vigorous record with its own interior monologue, a discourse to be a silent interlocutor to. Restraining the interior the musician offers the nature symbolism via modular synthesizers and analogue junk approach to scatter one’s ego worldwide for good. Full of elemental primitiveness the heretic in his destructive folly challenges to claim a nihilistic vision of reality to engage the listener into an ever-present absurd. A 200-CD edition in a classical glossy Digipak. A co-prod of Old Captain and Gradual Hate Records.

    Gudelnaya Polyana – Solar Systo Togathering 2020
    Label: Zhelezobeton ‎– ZHB-LXXXV
    Format: 3 × CD, Album, Compilation, Limited Edition, Numbered, Partially Mixed
    Country: Russia
    Released: 31 May 2021
    Style: Drone, Dark Ambient, Experimental, Ambient, Noise

    Here we have a three-hour long compilation of live recordings, made in September 2020 at Gudelnaya Polyana (Russian for “droning glade”) – the experimental stage of the Solar Systo Togathering festival. The concept of Gudelnaya Polyana is total drone, infinitely diverse, but united in its essence. Every year in any weather dozens of musicians gather in the woods of the Leningrad region to take part in this ritual action, keeping themselves warm with bonfires, hot pu-er tea and kilowatts of sound.

    In 2020, we were lucky to record the performances of most artists, and many of them agreed to provide fragments of these recordings for a commemorative compilation. The unity and diversity of droning sound is fully represented here since the festival gathers musicians from different fields: ambient, drone, noise, electronic, academic, and even the ensemble of 12-year-old experimenters made their contribution.

    The first disc gently immerses us in the forest thicket, swamps and electrified fogs; the second takes us further into the labyrinths of sound experiments and unlikely consonances; the third begins with the piercing clarity of dawn, which gives way to a calm daytime mood, followed by the coming of night – the deep darkness thickens, we’re riding electromagnetic waves and trying to look beyond human existence…

    However, the cathedrals were not only temples strictly dedicated to religious worship; in turn, they become places of encounter, of discussion, of contemplation. Sanctuary of the Tradition of Science and Art, the Gothic cathedral must be seen as a sufficient concretion of popular ideas, trends and faith, as a perfect whole that we can go to without fear when we try to know the thoughts of our ancestors , in all fields: religious, secular, philosophical or social.

    The medieval builders, authentic creators of these complex and amazing buildings, breathed into their works a whole series of knowledge and hermetic messages. From the conception of the building in a plane, through its orientation or the layout of its plan, each and every one of the elements of a cathedral or a church were carefully planned following some schemes loaded with symbolism and knowledge that largely He had inherited from antiquity. The imprint of these esoteric doctrines, applied by the builders, was evident in the designs made in cathedrals and medieval temples.

    Among the students of these buildings, the figure of the enigmatic controversial alchemist Fulcanelli stands out, for which the cathedrals constituted a compendium of all the knowledge of medieval alchemy. The principles of hermetic wisdom were exposed there, in the sight of all, but through symbols incomprehensible to the uninterested. The alchemist related, for example, the plant of the cathedrals in the form of a cross with the alchemical crucible and linked the seven medallions of the Virgin on the facade of Nôtre Dâme with the seven metals of the alchemical process for obtaining gold. He affirmed that «Gothic art» came from the term «argot», a secret language that only the initiates knew and that the light that penetrated inside the cathedrals had thaumaturgical properties because the stained glass filtered the harmful rays of the sun.

    «Art and science, once concentrated in the great monasteries, escape from the laboratory, run to the building, grab the bell towers, the pinnacles, the buttresses, hang from the arches of the vaults,` populate the niches , they transform the glasses into precious gems, the bronzes into sound vibrations, and they spread over the facades in a joyful flight of freedom and expression. «

    The dark-ambient and cold-cinematographic styles definitely are the main sources of inspiration running through this opus. I also noticed a few experimental treatments, but globally speaking this is music to activate evil spirits. Haunting voices and deep, humming tones will accompany the listener during their nightmarish trip. «side-line»

    Label: Noctivagant

    Country: USA
    Style: Drone, Ambient, Dark Ambient, Dungeon Synth, Neo-Classical

    Zothique (Clark Ashton Smith)
    «He who has trod the shadows of Zothique
    And looked upon the coal-red sun oblique,
    Henceforth returns to no anterior land,
    But haunts a later coast
    Where cities crumble in the black sea-sand
    And dead gods drink the brine.

    He who has known the gardens of Zothique
    Were bleed the fruits torn by the simorgh’s beak,
    Savors no fruit of greener hemispheres:
    In arbors uttermost,
    In sunset cycles of the sombering years,
    He sips an amaranth wine.

    He who has loved the wild girls of Zothique
    Shall not come back a gentler love to seek,
    Nor know the vampire’s from the lover’s kiss:
    For him the scarlet ghost
    Of Lilith from time’s last necropolis
    Rears amorous and malign.

    He who has sailed in galleys of Zothique
    And seen the looming of strange spire and peak,
    Must face again the sorcerer-sent typhoon,
    And take the steerer’s post
    On far-poured oceans by the shifted moon
    Or the re-shapen Sign».

    HIEMIS is a Spanish musical project belonging to the dark ambient genre that began its journey in 2018 after a period of reflection on an earlier stage with the darkfolk project Silent Love of Death. («The Poet´s Senses» 2004-Palace of Worms, «Donde Habite el Olvido» 2011-GH Records)

    In the little HIEMIS life I have published my music with the North American label Noctivagant with Phillip Abraham as well as with the Spanish label GH Records with the responsible Avencio Delgado.

    Nachtstücke (GH Records, 2018), Hyperborea (Noctivagant Records, 2019), Thule (GH Records, 2019) and Radix (Noctivagant Records, 2020). The latest album La Chose, about to be released under the GH Records label in spring

    an esoteric ritual book translated into two languages,
    Spanish and English.

    Although its sound has evolved to more ritual sounds, it maintains immersive textures together with drones in dark and disturbing environments.The main evolution that HIEMIS has had at this time has been at a con

    Apoptose – Die Zukunft
    Label: Tesco Organisation ‎– TESCO 128, Tesco Organisation ‎– 128
    Format: CD, Album
    Country: Germany
    Style: Dark Ambient, Ambient, Downtempo, Synthwave, Modern Classical

    In the four years of production Apoptose selected a wide range of different singers for this album. Most outstanding is classical trained tenor Daniel Sans. He sings «What Power Art Thou» – a song that was composed by Henry Purcell in the late 17th century. Apoptose and Sans preserve the complex harmonic structure of the original translating it into a breathtaking five minute ride in apoptotic soundspheres. They succeed in conjuring up Purcell’s «cold genius» that had already fascinated legendary countertenor Klaus Nomi in the 1980s. Other voices on «Die Zukunft» include the gloomy spoken words of the advance single «Time-lapse City», the lost girl’s voice on the title track and two female singers on «Dornen». Consistent with the album title Apoptose does not look back, but is heading for novel territories within the dark ambient music genre

    Limited to 100 copies.

    Folkstorm started out as a martial industrial project of Henrik Nordvargr Björkk in 1999. Over the years it has progressed into a more refined beast, mixing punkish rhythmic noise with aggressive vocals.

    «Only a year after the «Nihil Total» album Folkstorm returns stronger than ever with an album of suffocating and death-infused ortodox industrial.
    Recorded using only 70´s circuitry and lots of metallic percussion Nordvargr has created a dense atmosphere that is dark and threatening as well as hypnotic.»
    Recorded September 2020 in Studio Nar Mattaru
    All music by Henrik Nordvargr Björkk: Serge 73-75, metals, FX
    «Obotlig» is dedicated to Marcus LaBonte
