The review on the weird but very interesting first release of the one man band Mustamaa from Finland, "Maa on Systinen Laulu", is online.

Actually, the ultimate ambient music was probably experienced by me in my very house, while resting on my very lounge last summer: There I was and there I lay, retired for the evening, with discman and good headphones on the ready, when suddenly it occurred to me that something very profound and mysterious was about to unfold. Perhaps this wasn't anything all that unusual as I had often enjoyed the process of the deep, inward ambient electronic journey. Thus, I wasted no more time and pressed the 'play' button on the portable CD player, so that at that very moment, the mystery CD seemed to spin and the world seemed to drift.

It must have been no more than 5-10 minutes later when I began thinking things like:
"Wow... this is deep"    and   "holy heck, this is minimal as all hell..."

Then at that point the sense of mystery or mysteriousness started to deepen and became increasingly unsettling, indeed it was something too weird for words. So I sat up and flicked on the table-side lamp, only to realize that the device had been set to lock/hold and thus the CD hadn't even been playing. What a revelation! that I had merely confused what I was expecting to hear for the droning sound of an air-conditioner (yet again).  And what a relief for existence also! which had since reverted back to being a laughing matter yet again.

Still the sense of mystery lingered on and gradually re-intensified until the point where it finally and rather suddenly hit me with the force of an F-18 producing the sonic boom, throwing my consciousness from this end of the couch to other.

And it was at that moment that the true essence of ambient fully manifested itself to me.

Without intending, I had momentarily confused the non-spinning state of the CD with it's spinning state, and the muffled soundwaves of the world beyond the headphones, with the expectation of the inner world within them.
 
And such as it was, that one experience, or lack thereof served as a catalyst for a billion splinter thought-variations, and for each of them a non-thought counterpart. Everything went inside out; the expectation inherent in what makes music musical had dissolved, pre-conceptions of what 'is' and 'is not' dissolved - and everything just sort of 'was' -  all on account of accidentally having listened to 'not-listening' and/or being a lone wolf who reserves the preference for hyper-connectivity over insanity, not that he'd know.

Metal / Re: OSSUAIRE (France) Tape out now! Old school death

Greetings,

I’m pleased to announce 300 copies of the OSSUAIRE tape have now invaded the underground! Worldwide.
Check your local distros for availability, or directly contact me.


Also more reviews have appeared:

LA HORDE NOIRE Webzine (France):
http://lahordenoire.free.fr/chronique.php?art=3260#.VVWwXJPj9NQ

VM UNDERGROUND zine (Holland):
As said in our first issue, I admire underground tape labels like Nihilistic Holocaust from France. This time Gabriel of NH re-released the demo of French Death Metal act Ossuaire, who released this demo back in 2005. The booklet of the tape just has the right attitude, everything is illustrated and cut & paste. And it is printed on beige paper, to give it an ancient feeling. Mission accomplished! The demo consists of 3 tracks and an intro, all in a dark and obscure atmosphere. Although it speculating about the lyrics, but it seems to be about a damned and perverse Troubadour (a folk poet-singer), who tells about all the horrors and insupportable scenes he could see, and be involved in. Isn’t that hunky-dory! The atmosphere is definitely all about smelling the stench during the Plague-era. Music wise you can expect a mixture of old Morbid Angel and early Cannibal Corpse. So there is a bit of complexity as well as old school brutality. During “Le Flčau” you can hear some Bolt Thrower groove, but I would like to keep the Bolt Thrower reference only for this track. If you are a fan of tapes and 1990s Death Metal Torture, contact Nihilistic Holocaust for this demo. (Ricardo)

Unbury the medieval hatchet,

The ultimate ambient musik is just some guy from a failed civilization wandering through the woods humming melodies to himself; trying to figure it all out, but often-times just too blissed out (to try and figure it all out).

Hey Spinal, nice find! I did hear it but not for a long while. Just started re-listening now and it's actually not half bad (if one can handle the cheesy 80s synth aesthetic), but I'm actually enjoying it now a lot more than I remember. So thankyou!

Hmmm...

An 'orange cover' sounds as though you might be thinking of that Tangram album, which was basically just a big cheese fest for moog enthusiasts after the band almost entirely lost every shred of creative potential; plus momentum flounders that ever there was.

Needless to say, do give them another chance. I would say the starting point for newcomers from a metal background would undoubtedly be their earlier material, mid 70s and earlier but most definitely starting with Phaedra.

Hey aquarius, did you ever hear the Logos 1982 live album? It's kind of orange... I found it cheap at a record store some time ago, and it's actually not totally worthless (for being 80s TD)! It's drips of cheese at the end but side one plus beginning of side two has some nice moments. The beginning of side two is even a bit sinister.
