Metal / Re: Tangerine Dream
« Last post by aquarius on April 19, 2015, 06:19:14 AM »

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.

Metal / A Helpful Guide To Better Ambient Listening
« Last post by aquarius on April 19, 2015, 05:32:06 AM »
Quote from: Adam Douglas, Redwood City, 1993
First things first: Ambient music can be many things, but there are three things it most definitely is not:

It is not merely techno slowed down.
It is not just a bunch of sound effects records played at the same time.
It is not boring.

If the ambient music you are used to hearing is any of these things, chuck it in the garbage, because it's a waste of your time. Ambient music requires one to listen, and these elements are all shortcomings to actually listening. It is the easy way out. And that's called 'pop music.'

Like Muzak, ambient music creates an environment that you enter while listening. Notice how no other sense is necessary for this experience: no fractals to look at, no patchouli to smell, no bean bags to lie on. These are all superfluous. All you need are your ears and an active, open mind. Ambient music can get you there—minus the jet lag, minus the come down. All it requires of you is to listen.

And when you've turned off the stereo, keep listening. Ambient music is constant. Birds, wind, cars, people—a rhythm of random, natural sounds perpetually performed: the concert of life. As John Cage has said: "Music is all around us, if we only had ears." So listen, listen to your own rhythms: your heartbeat, the sub-bass rumble of your circulating blood, the music bubbling forth in your brain. Don't tune them out because you've heard it before—it's beautiful, and it's free.

Travel deeper than your surface perceptions, listen behind the sounds, around the silent spaces. Beats begin to emerge from the clutter, voices from seemingly unintelligible sounds (my first ambient experience was hearing rhythmic voices from a running dishwasher as a child). And listen actively—we have been conditioned into passive listening, an activity that requires virtually no action. Ambient music can help you fly, but you still have to flap your arms. How hard you flap only depends on how high you want to go.

Metal / Re: OSSUAIRE (France) Tape out now! Old school death
« Last post by gabalgabow on April 11, 2015, 09:05:46 AM »

New reviews of the OSSUAIRE tape have appeared!

BRUTALISM Webzine (Hol)
This is a re-release of this French death metal bands 2005 demo tape, although listening to the tracks I would swear it was from the early 90’s. This is savage old school death metal. The production is perfect for the style, it’s creepy and earthy in all the right places and the music itself is like a dismembering ritual on a harlot from hell or at best the most daunting music to teach any particular person that pisses you off a real lesson in assaulting death metal!
There are a few atmospherics, the title track ‘Le troubadour nécrophageophile ‘ is savage, with the brutality of the early Florida scene, the guttural vocal attack of later brutal death metal with an overall sound that’s sounds like war, especially with the blast beats added. ‘Necrofistum prima nocte’ again tugs at the heartstrings of the death metal purist, groovy and battering, even underneath some pretty raw production. Bolt Thrower may spring to mind, but that’s too easy, but you get the meaning, its getting towards that stage of naming every early 90’s death metal band as an influence, which I feel is from both sides of the pond, i.e. Europe and the USA.
Refreshing is how I would describe this release, old school is bounded around a lot for bands that play a particular style, you may be fed up of hearing that term, but this is one of those releases that actually feels right to be tagged in such a way. The vintage is perfect and if you want to burst a blood vessel, bang your head and smash shit up, then Ossuaire know how to provide that perfect soundtrack. 4/5. Maul Madison

CHAINSAW GUTSFUCK Newsletter (Chile)
El primer demo de Ossuaire les va a volar la raja. Estos franceses saben lo que es tocar death metal oscuro, sin conseciones ni altibajos maricones. Gracias a Gab de Nihilistic Holocaust nuevamente por hacer llegar este material. Encontraras en estos 4 temas y una intro de momentos epicos de brutalidad como el antiguo Morbid Angel y esa atmosfera plagada de riffs intensos de 'In Battle there's no Law". La tematica se basa en los horrores y atrocidades del medioevo. Quizas el mejor demo llegado a Chainsa para este issue.

Adoration of Blasphemy and War
DP049 | CD | TAPE | DD

GOATBLOOD raise the bar of madness again: ‘Adoration of Blasphemy and War’ is the first full-length by these satanic Black/Death Metal-disciples. There is no doubt about the band’s priorities: low-tuned guitars, a crushing bass, massive drumming and the satanic shouts of Satanic Death Vulva give distinction to the sound.

If you’re into the war hymns of REVENGE, PROCLAMATION or BLACK WITCHERY, you’ll enjoy this release. Hell breaks loose in seconds and it brings tortures even worse than death. The Black/Death Metal of GOATBLOOD is the most intense. Fast, brutal, and satanic songs destroy everything in their way. The satanic commandos crackle mercilessly, the darkness rises, and Hell itself is here!

The cassette edition is limited to 150 copies. Black cassettes with noble gold print and A2 poster.
The first 50 CDs come with a embroided logo patch.
