new-ish fallow field release from about a month and a half ago.

raw black metal on one side, unlisted noisey ambience on the other.

this is fallow field we're talking about here, so you should all know what to expect.

copies are long gone, of course, but there's one for sale on discogs.

in my barely-cursory internet searching, I was unable to find much info on the people behind this project...only a few rough tracks and a blog post from a year ago saying that the tape was "coming soon."

but whoever they are, hopefully there's more to come...and soon.

7. (A)Sex - Glistening Blood Drops Against My Pale Skin

in honor of the excellent (a)sex performance last night, here's a split from (a)sex, the man behind the ebony tower, and RDCD, the man behind phantom cadaver.

not only is mitchell of (a)sex a captivating performer, his recorded output is just as dynamic, and he's also become incredibly prolific in a very short amount of time.

his wall material is consistently challenging and thought-provoking, and his power electronics material is consistently brutal and cathartic.

and the same can be said of john's RDCD material.

lots of great tones, textures, and vocals in this one.

I'm not sure how many copies of this disc were made, but it's seriously excellent and should provide a great starting point for anyone unfamiliar with either (a)sex or RDCD.

a few other (a)sex releases are available via bandcamp - they're all affordable, so please support this hardworking artist who also just happens to be a really nice guy.

and there's plenty of RDCD material available on bandcamp, too.

if you have the chance to see (a)sex live, do whatever you can to bear witness to mitchell's special brand of concentrated fury.

(buy some digital releases.)

one of the two new total black tapes, the other being a new v. sinclair release which might also get posted soon.

limited to 49 copies in black clamshell cases, these all sold out pretty quickly.

love that cover art.

all very minimal with some occasional synth flourishes.

solid stuff, recommended if you can find it.

various artists - atavist document.

Various Artists - Atavist Document



1. Mares Laig - Luster Of Damask
2. Vitka - Parched And Drowning
3. Black Beret - Tedium
4. Pool - Untitled
5. Malcriado - Penitence
6. Work/Death - And Percious Blood Cemetery Washed Down Main Street
7. Zerfallt - Diamond Hull
8. V Manuscript - Exist

courtesy of v. sinclair's clandestine compositions label.

solid juxtaposition of ambient drones and noise.

that "post industrial bliss" line on the cover is a perfect description.

the packaging is first-rate - there's some nice vellum paper, the cassettes are labeled, and everything fits together just right.

I don't think I'd heard of any of these artists before, but the label's never steered me wrong before, even with only a handful of releases, and this one is no different.

glad I picked this one up.


(buy a copy from the label.)
