    La Fiesta Triste – La Belleza del Óxido

    “La belleza del óxido”(2021) sugiere una reflexión sobre el paso del tiempo, una metáfora de nuestra efímera existencia. Una visión poética de la corrosión de la piel, del alma, sobre la edad y la muerte, mostrando la belleza que hay en este proceso decadente, tal y como sucede con la oxidación de los metales en su exposición al tiempo y a los elementos.

    El hilo conductor sónico y estético del disco es la referencia al óxido: ruidos, chirridos y metales, que acompañan a las melodías creando un paisajes coloristas que se mezclan con elementos de varios estilos musicales de los que se influencia, como EBM, post-punk, noise, psytrance, post-rock…siempre con un estilo propio muy reconocible, bases electrónicas bailables minimalistas y repetitivas, adornadas con melodías melancólicas de guitarra, bajo y sintetizadores.

    EG → LA FIESTA TRISTE is the solo project of Javier Andreu (a.k.a. Fête Triste), a musician, producer, designer and photographer from Valencia (Spain).
    He studied music and piano at the Official Music School. Later in life he taught himself to bass, electric guitar, drums, synthesizers and music production. This project arises from the ashes of other bands in which he has participated (Basura de Eva, VIE and Pronoise).
    After some self-produced works, such as «Ciudades Invisibles» (2000), «Minimalista» (2005), or «Desaparecer» (2019), published on CD and digital platforms. In this new album Fête bets on the vinyl format and the «Do it yourself» production, with the collaboration of the label GH Records.

    This new album closes a cycle of several years of producing and composing, and comprises a selection of 8 songs chosen from a large number recorded in recent years. The music, the concept, the design of the covers, have been entirely created by Fête, except for “Todos contra todos” a free version inspired by an original song by Sergio Alfonso (producer and drummer). The theme «To Helen» is a tribute to the romantic literature of Edgar Allan Poe, and the lyrics are taken from the author’s poem with the same title.

    Mixing and mastering are carried out by the producer José M.ª Aboga and the promotional video for the song “Crepuscular” has been made by the video artist Lesya Yershova. Avencio Delgado collaborates with his label GH Records, Jesús CTG (APMV Asociación Promotora Multicultural Valencia / Emergencia Sonora https://emergenciasonora.es/) and Dani Sombra (Dark Valencia), collectives with tradition in this type of music in the city.

    “La belleza del óxido /The beauty of rust” (2021) is a reflection of how time goes by, a metaphor for our fleeting existence. A poetic vision of the corrosion of the skin, of the soul, of age and of death, showing the beauty that exists in this decadent process, just as happens with the oxidation of metals in their exposure to time and the elements.
    The sonic and aesthetic thread of the album is the reference to rust: noise, squeaks and metals, which accompany the melodies creating colorful passages that are mixed with elements of various musical styles from which it is influenced, such as EBM, post-punk, noise, psytrance, post-rock … always with his own very recognizable style, which consists of minimalist and repetitive dance electronic bases with melancholic melodies of guitar, bass and synthesizers.

  • Five years of Dark Ambient Sounds – Mørk Skog

    Label: Gradual Hate Records – GH03 MP3
    Format: Digital Compilation
    Country: Spain
    Released: 2016
    Style: Dark Ambient, Dark Wave

    Mørk Skog has started in the early months of 2006, initially as a minimalistic dark ambient project, influenced by ambient instrumentals and intros of early black metal. After two demos, the project was suspended, in order to focus more on metal music. Mørk Skog reignited in 2008, this time more into the post-industrial and experimental underground, touching nearly all genres of them in the coming five years (including dark ambient, noise, neoclassical, electro-industrial and even martial for one song in 2010) and releasing many demos, EPs and albums. After releasing a tribute album to H. P. Lovecraft and ENDVRA titled Dreams of Black Mountains, the project was closed down forever in 2013 in order to focus more on Kraschau (containing dark ambient parts in it’s last album, Une Foi d’Acier).
