Posthuman Tantra

Posthuman Tantra

This is a kind of drone, dark ambient shamanic electronic from a guy here in Brasil. I like it, but quality wise I don't know what to make of it. There are two albums that I could find, one I found quite good, Pissing Nanorobots, whereas Posthuman Void I found enjoyable but not so good. But I'm still listening to it, it has good replay value. Reminds me a little of Krieg. Here are the links if anybody is interesting in reviewing it here:

There are more albums, but only for sale

Speaking of Krieg, is there anything good by Krieg? All of it sounds like garbage to me. I listened to everything reviewed on the DLA. The reviews are also strangely more flowery and adjective-laden than they are descriptive. The feeling I get from Krieg is like looking at an ugly piece of modern sculpture, utter nihilism of the passive variety. Am I missing something here? It is the only DLA reviewed band I do not get at. all.

Vigilance, it can be boring and annoying, if you allow it to be, but I don't think it's that bad. It may be repugnant AND good at the same time, at least for me. I admit it's hectic, but it's more of an exploratory stuff for me. It's not music in the traditional sense.

As for Krieg, I like this song a lot:

Here is the guy's myspace. I'd like to know what people think of it. It is very similar to music I've done, although I was even worse with the technical part, and it is very uni-directional. Strangely it has gained favorable reviews in various places in the world.

They are more like chaosiac-sigils than music, intended to penetrate subliminar barries inducing states of mind on the listener in a tetric way.

It is more mantra than music.

Another thing that amazed me was how it was on split-cds with great bands, like Emme-ya and Melek-tha.

Sono lo Scherno is an album that has fascinated me for a number years. Apart from that, maybe parts of Rise of the Imperial Hordes as well, particularly "End of Time".

At it's best, Krieg seems to be a distinct and at the time unprecedented resolution of the avant-garde aesthetic realized in early Blasphemy, summoning both profound ritual and savagery. The occasional insertions of ancient music ("Ruin Under the Burning Skies", "Knights of the Holocaust" ) provide a deeper, more abstract narrative still.

In some ways, this era of Krieg reminds me of At the Gates ca. Garden of Grief and The Red In the Sky is Ours. The more recent stuff, as well as the more widely hailed stuff, I haven't yet developed an appreciation for.
