(Hospital - HOS442) CD $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

(Hospital - HOS442) LP $21.00 (Out-of-stock)

Death, deprivation and an agnostic vision of a crumbling society.

AKITSA

Au Crépuscule de l'Espérance

(Hospital - HOS268) CD $14.50 (Out-of-stock)

(Hospital - HOS268) LP $14.50 (Out-of-stock)

Dedicated to imperfection, obsessed by minimalism, Akitsa returns after three years with a full length album (their fourth) where primitivism, bitter atmosphere and youthful naivety clash together in a blaze of raw hate anthems. One of the cruelest factions of North American black metal.

AKITSA / ASH POOL

Ripped From Death, Forced To Live, And Die Again

(Hospital - HOS318) LP $19.50 (Out-of-stock)

Split LP of esoteric and violent North American black metal, four years in the making. Edition of 500.

ALBERICH

Psychology of Love

(Hospital - HOS221) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Long-awaited first LP of heavy electronics command. Philosophies of war and love burn in the cauldron of mythology. Trade one power for another but be warned that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Includes tracks from Rumbala (Hospital 2007), the infamous cassette that started it all. For fans of Militia, Grey Wolves, Pal, and Esplendor Geometrico. Edition of 200.

ASH POOL

For Which He Plies The Lash

(Hospital - HOS267) CD $14.00 (Out-of-stock)

(Hospital - HOS267) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Second full length. Eight songs of big bang black metal by Dominic Fernow (Prurient, Cold Cave, Hospital) and Kris Kapke (Alberich, Northern Cross). Our comrades at Second Layer tell it like it is: "The duo blasts out raw and disgusting primitive black metal, with lots of balance between neck-breaking speed and lurking mid-tempo howl, with even some grind-ish elements for good measure."

ASH POOL

Saturns Slave

(Hospital - HOS229) 7-inch $9.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two new tracks of raw black metal from the cold gas of the cosmic crucifixion. 900 copies on blue vinyl and 100 on clear vinyl.

MAURIZIO BIANCHI

Symphony for a Genocide

(Hospital - HOS183) CD $7.00 (Out-of-stock)

Originally released in 1981, this debut album followed numerous tape-only releases by this Italian industrial legend. MB's bleak, chilling drones contain plenty of well-constructed brutality with hallucinatory blasts of electronic noise, grinding rhythms of hand-cut tape noise, and overblown synthetic distortion.

BLACKDEATH

Katharsis: Kalte Lieder aus der Hölle

(Hospital - HOS288) CD $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

(Hospital - HOS288) LP $17.00 (Out-of-stock)

Blackdeath keeps fighting, living life as war. Wildness and violence have hardened into an idiosyncratic and cracked style: manic vocals that switch from a black rasp to psychotic singing; Nordic riffs bent into a weapon with sharper angles; and song progression equal parts percussive brawl and wide-eyed revelation. Black metal stubbornly focused on quality of riff and refinement of composition. Potent.

BURNING STAR CORE

Challenger

(Hospital - HOS216) CD $13.75 (Out-of-stock)

(Plastic - P007) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

On this composed work (as opposed to BxC's propensity for improv), each piece revolves around a central melodic theme with field recordings, an audio diary bridging the gaps, ranging from pure tonal mood to huge electronic crescendos. Challenger uses space remarkably, with parts coming and going, dropping, building or receding. When the piano crashes in “Mysteries of the Organ,” it's almost a frustration of paradise, a rejection of perfection or maybe a jolt of inexplicable life, unable to be translated into proper communication. Juxtaposed with the quiet haunting of “Hopelessly Devoted” which sounds like a love letter written to outer space, it makes for an album that is both dynamic yet consistent as a full statement. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2008

BURNING STAR CORE

Inside The Shadow

(Hospital - HOS212) CD $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

Unlike the majority of C. Spencer Yeh’s electronic compositions, this reissue of an obscure tour-only recording from 2005 brings three textures to life with violin, chimes and bells. Yeh’s landscape-oriented, linear compositions surpass the limitations of most of his contemporaries’ synth-only exercises.

BURNING STAR CORE

Let’s Play Wild Like Wildcats Do

(Hospital) Used CD $8.00

Full-on experimental electronics from 1995, with the first track “Mes Soldats Stupides (Demo)” gradually fracturing kraut / funk drums, horns, and white noise into a whirling mess of synthesized mayhem. “Clouds In My Coffee” is a darker piece of devastating, resonating analogue drone. Sealed

BURNING STAR CORE

Body Blues

(Hospital - HOS182) 7-inch $6.75 (Out-of-stock)

Spencer Yeh’s voice of rapture emerges from the tunnels of noise. Two side-long pieces that drift between driving, nostalgic, road-weary, headlong plunges into human mysteries and sombre, rose-pedal synth write private and voyeuristic existentialism.

CHRISTIAN COSMOS

Enthronement By God As The First-Born Of The Dead

(Hospital - HOS338) LP $21.00 (Out-of-stock)

Released first as a limited-edition quadruple-cassette box set, now condemned to vinyl. As part of the trinity of electronic projects where Dominick Fernow of Prurient examines anxiety and fear, lightning drums pound the rhythms for lost souls, trumpets of the heavens command the threshold, ancient notes and structures are scrambled and returned with information loss. Soundtrack for judgement of souls. Edition of 500.

CHRISTICIDE

Upheaval Of The Soul

(Hospital - HOS329) CD $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

The second album of compelling black metal from France, combining the serpentine violence of early Deicide with the thunderous, tom-heavy drumming of early Mayhem. Salivating barks echo amid an engulfing atmosphere of crawling obscurity. Darkness upon the world.

CLAY RENDERING

Vengeance Candle

(Hospital - HOS392) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Clay Rendering is a new band born of Aries couple Mike (Wolf Eyes, Failing Lights) and Tara Connelly (The Pool At Metz, The Haunting). The two began work on the project in the fall of 2012, dedicated to resurrection (much like their sun signs), with a focus on arcane structures. Electronics mix with acoustics, vocals and guitar to create these songs inspired by last days.

CLAY RENDERING

Waters Above The Firmament

(Hospital) Used LP $10.00

This second EP from Mike and Tara Connelly recalls everything from Cocteau Twins and The Cranes at their most desolate to classic Sonic Youth, colored and mis-shaped through abstract production. Sealed

COLD CAVE

Cremations

(Hospital - HOS248) CD $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

(Hospital - HOS248) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

The early demos, live and unreleased tracks collected here document the development of this singular musical entity from their isolated beginnings to the recent full band line-up, in all its icy, electronic glory. From Cold Cave’s infancy, sexual identity and oblique existentialism have been expressed through biting lyrics and electronic minimalism. Rarely has the human condition been exposed so brazenly as in “Sex Ads.” Melodies, noise and rhythms clash as stories from below the surface are retold. From the Coma Potion LP, which featured a rugged, stripped-down distortion, to the suggestive Electronic Dreams tour cassette (featuring the voice of Max Morton on the track “Heavenly Metals”), Cold Cave’s genre-defying electronic music never betrays its dark roots. Love and pornography, industrial music and traditionalism, poetry and profanity all mix together in a hedonistic cocktail of nihilistic nights and mournful mornings. Cremations collects all this work for the first and last time.

COLD CAVE / PRURIENT

Stars Explode

(Hospital - HOS266) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Vinyl edition of the collaboration tape originally released in an edition of 100 for a UK tour. Pulsing, heavy ambient electronics, with one new track not on the tape.

COLD CAVE

Painted Nails

(Hospital - HOS226) 7-inch $8.50 (Out-of-stock)

Hospital's first venture directly into the controversial and rhythmic world of trance, power noise, synth pop, and '80s industrial music. Three authentically morose, epic anthems with the texture of a shattered champagne glass. Imagine a highly damaged, Downward Spiral-era demo hitting the raw nerve of a heart, where all breaths freeze in rapture and all feelings croak in the blood of the beat-less heart.

JASON CRUMER

Ottoman Black

(Hospital - HOS215) CD $13.75 (Out-of-stock)

Fresh off a breakthrough Future With No Chance LP (RRRecords), Jason Crumer returns with an album of midnight drones and true noise. Using powerfully clear electronics as a base for declarative noise bursts, Crumer manipulates the sounds with a resounding animosity. His mean streak yields to an array of silences over the course of the album but nothing here is not painful here, especially the quiet; the peaks are almost a relief. "Betrayal After Betrayal" stands out with its conversational quality, both the screams and the muffles, the physicality, while "Where Were You" is an actionist-influenced piece of torture. Ottoman Black is a stern and unforgiving universe. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2008

DEATH SQUAD

Theological Genocide

(Hospital - HOS497) 2xLP $30.00 (Out-of-stock)

Originally released by Spastik Kommunikations in 1997, Theological Genocide culminated in the Self Annihilation Tour across North America. More than simply a band or solo project, Death Squad combined writings and visuals with fearless performances full of psychological and physical confrontations. Multimedia existentialism in the flesh. Edition of 250

DEATHPILE

G.R.

(Hospital - HOS88) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

From 1995 to 2004 Jonathan Canady led this classic American power electronics band, and this the band’s final album (Force of Nature Productions / Hospital Productions, 2003), set a benchmark in extreme music, providing a fully realized, investigative, confrontational intensity while exploring the perspective of the perpetrator, in this case one Gary Ridgway. Longtime industrial and experimental musician David E. Williams provides masterful analogue synth work alongside Canady’s devastating vocal performance, testament to controlled chaos and full immersion in challenging subject matter. First-time vinyl edition of 500.

DIAPSIQUIR

Pacta Daemoniarum / Crasse

(Hospital - HOS232) Used 2xCD $5.00

Diapsiquir's two remarkable double-albums on End All Life warrant the term avant-garde, without regard for blueprints, a rare honor. An obscure and controversial French outlaw black metal band known for their decadent activities, this 2xCD contains their first two demos -- Pacta Daemoniarum from 1999 and Crasse from 2001 -- both of which spit twisted, vociferous, manic vocals over complex, orchestrated, highly distorted chaotic metal. It never rests and is fully absorbed in the savage, sexually violent, drug-laden nihilism of French subculture.

KEVIN DRUMM

Imperial Distortion

(Hospital - HOS134) 2xCD $16.75 (Out-of-stock)

(Hospital - HOS134) Used 3xLP $30.00

Where 2002’s Sheer Hellish Miasma took noise to a new level of near-impenetrable exactitude, Imperial Distortion is an altogether different beast. Kevin Drumm comes face to face with minimal drone music and confronts the genre by providing one of its absolute pinnacles at the forefront: movement. Drone music at its most concentrated and ably performed has build and depth. From the shadowy layers of soundtrack to ominous bell tones, from the almost ballad-esque elegance of tone and frequency as melodic portals to nowhere to the tension suggestive of anxiety that never truly dies, from lullaby ease to severity that eclipses the light, this is a work that commands intellectual and emotional commitment on the levels of the greatest works to come from this genre.
White vinyl.

KEVIN DRUMM

Imperial Horizon

(Hospital - HOS251) Used CD $11.00

Imperial Horizon examines sustained tone in greater depth than Drumm's previous Hospital benchmark, Imperial Distortion, stretching out minimalism to unreached heights of serene ambience. Lulling electronic drones slowly transform over the course of the hour-plus piece, echoing both an existential terror and Zen calm. Mutations grow so quietly, only the body opens to identify this change while the mind closes. The ephemeral and seeming lightness of the tones hang with taut balance in contrast to the method in which they are overlapped and rotated with deadly weight. How wildly divergent emotions rise, hover, and fall using so little is a mystery only Drumm can solve.

KEVIN DRUMM

Tannenbaum

(Hospital - HOS371) 2xCD $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Malignant electronic ambient music by a true master whose subtle, roving drones keep the pace with Hitchcockian tension, while details of a story emerge and recede, and sequences are lost in the clatter of long chambers of isolation adorned with the trimmings of pagan beauties. Edition of 500.

KEVIN DRUMM / PRURIENT

All Are Guests In The House Of The Lord

(Hospital - HOS201) CD $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

The first collaboration between Prurient and Kevin Drumm is one of the darker records in either artist’s discography. Prurient (Dominick Fernow) has toiled in the fields of noise for over a decade and has developed an increasingly dynamic output incorporating darkly arranged synths. Using source sounds of intense tonal drones supplied by Drumm, the two create a haunted atmosphere that is far removed from noise, exploring minimal junctures, using field recordings and clean, patient vocals to lead the way. Subtle electronic textures combine with near-cinematic arrangements.

EMIL BEAULIEAU

Moonlight in Vermont

(Hospital - HOS250) CD $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

With bizarre turntable machinations, a sweater-vest, tie and table-lamp, a live show by the RRReal Emil is a possessed demon dance in service to the relationship of normality and not-rightness. Originally released -- following one snafu after another -- on LP (Ecstatic Peace 2006), Moonlight In Vermont is one of BBBeaulieau’s most masterful documents.The true sound of love by America's greatest living noise artist.

CARLOS GIFFONI

Severance

(Hospital - HOS254) CD $13.50

(Hospital - HOS254) Used CD $8.00

No Fun’s Giffoni defines his signature with compositional electronic music that melds analog drone with tonality of the past expressions and a collision of minimalist sequencer details on a pure electronic landscape.

GREY WOLVES

Judgment

(Hospital - HOS247) CD $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

A CD reissue of Hospital’s favorite cassette-only release from the legendary UK industrial icon in celebration of their twenty-third year of existence. Famed for their power electronics, Judgement instead exhibits Grey Wolves’ dark, rhythmic industrial and ritualistic, minimal synth self. Two side-long oil-slick tracks of filthy, crumbling, rotten beats hammer away with nihilistic chaos. Militant synth lines raise the occult flag. Ancient ethereal feedback howls voiceless language through the hallway of industrial fallout.

HAIR POLICE

Prescribed Burning

(Hospital) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

A heavy, desolate, late-night set that moves into the kind of single-sonic-event in a Saragossa of tension style of NNCK while reflecting on aspects of early Throbbing Gristle, Nord et al. Bleak, extended smears of nightmare tone. Silkscreened jackets. Edition of 500.

LUSSURIA

Ghost Entanglement

(Hospital - HOS252) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

From the phantasmal electronics domain, this seamless sound collage takes you through all the various rooms in the house. Blindfolded, you reach for things familiar but everything feels different in the dark. A state of ambience is interrupted by déjà vu. For fans of early CMI, Mlehst, and the atmospheric end of Goblin. Edition of 200.

MACRONYMPHA

Sex and Death

(Hospital - HOS100) 7-inch $6.75 (Out-of-stock)

The ultimate dichotomy of thunder and scourge, fire and flood, iron and breast. Cock and bat... the hammering continues. Whoever dies with the most cumshots wins. Joe Roemer and Rodger Stella are joined here by Prurient’s Dominic Fernow. Classic transsexual art brut.

MALKUTH

Sefirah Gevurah

(Hospital - HOS217) CD $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

(Hospital - HOS217) Used LP $7.00

The highly anticipated second LP by New York black metal trio. Having spent the last year furiously performing and sharing stages with some of the genre's masters, Malkuth continues their descent into the occult with this truly bleak assault. Far from pandering to false antics, Malkuth's album stands aside Hospital contemporaries such as Ash Pool and Bone Awl and offers their own vision of death. Hail to the coming night that Malkuth brings.

MLEHST

The Difficulty In Crossing A Field

(Hospital) 2xLP $30.00

On this chance meeting of musique concrète and pornography, previously released on CDR in 1998 by Bandaged Hand Produce, the under-heralded master of British sound collage — more sinister and rawer than Nurse With Wound — juxtaposes surrealist electronics with abstracted audio stories. Eerie and mysterious, the secret world of one man’s fetishes hidden away in nature. Edition of 250.

THURSTON MOORE / NEW BLOCKADERS / JIM O'ROURKE

Voloptulist

(Hospital - HOS144) Used CD $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

(Ecstatic Peace - HOS144) Used LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two tracks, one a collaboration with Thurston Moore, the other with Jim O’Rourke (and Chris Corsano on percussion). Tense drones with English clutter dissolving into tape hiss ambiance with booming, free barbaric yawps. Such butchery.

RON MORELLI

Backpages

(Hospital) Used LP $10.00

The L.I.E.S. kingpin kicks off with the muggy, droning welt of “Public Consumption,” while “Another Hit” builds a vintage Regis-era style on skull-chipping snares and effluent acid modulation. The album’s writhing batacuda banger “Crack Microbes” reappears as an extra-ferric extended version, sustaining the hypnotic intensity for nine minutes of panic attack acid and febrile cowbells. Railgun snares and a grotty synthline shake down the triplet techno of “Rushing Again.” Sealed

NIHILIST ASSAULT GROUP

Silent Movie

(Hospital - HOS142) LP + DVD $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Documents the only known live performance (at No Fun Fest) of the alias of The New Blockaders. The DVD contains silent footage only and one must spin the vinyl simultaneously in order to hear the sound while witnessing this futile destruction. DVD also features additional commentary by G.X. Jupiter-Larsen of The Haters.

PRURIENT

Pleasure Ground

(Hospital) Used 2xLP $25.00

2016 reissue of 2006 cassette. Four 11-minute tracks. Hypnotic, uncomplicated. Sealed

PRURIENT

Cocaine Death

(Hospital - HOS232) Used CD $10.00

Cocaine Death is a collects three of Prurient's limited edition 10-minute cassettes -- a triptych exploring the relationship between futile pleasure, substance and escape (escape being a myth): “Cocaine Death” is based on the glamor and destruction of toxic nightlife, and features guest vocals from FFH); “Caribbean Overdose” explores a different but strangely direct topic of the sexual reproductive life of plants; “Tylenol Murders” expands on the sounds of the others to further limits of cracked static, strained vocals and strange melodic loops. For the diehards, two unreleased tracks of Prurient are included. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2008.

PRURIENT

The History of Aids

(Hospital - HOS079) Used LP $16.50

Massive, textural, throbbing, destructive, electronic, feedback-drenched power electronics and industrial noise with heavily processed vocals and field recordings dealing with vulnerability. Uses Thirteenth Century love poems of Persian poet Rumi as lyrics. Originally released 2000 on CD. On vinyl for the first time. Sealed

SARGEIST

Lair of Necromancy

(Hospital - HOS326) 7-inch $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Ritual Finnish black metal that should need no introduction, but just in case: Sargeist features members of Horna and Behexen, both are long-term Finnish black metal bands known for profound live performances of magic. Their Let The Devil In (Moribund 2010) was a new standard for fast, brutal and memorable black metal.

SATANIC WARMASTER

Bloody Ritual

(Hospital - HOS333) 7-inch $10.50 (Out-of-stock)

Vinyl reissue of the first demo (Plague Lord 1999) by the king of finnish black metal, Satanic Tyrant Werwolf, whose idea for his new direction germinated in 1998, while Werwolf was performing vocals under the name Nazgul Von Armageddon for the band Horna.

SHALLOW SANCTION

EP

(Hospital - HOS415) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

A refreshing but authentic take on the lineage referencing bands such as early Christian Death, Amebix, and Conflict. This London group rejects the overly distorted approach of recent years for a more honest, stripped down and raw, gothic punk. An isolated and anthemic voice echoes alongside cold, rainy drums and bloody-nose bass, accented by the unusual introduction of effects and smartly placed electronics. Their skeletal and frightfully nuts-and-bolts morbid punk evokes a nihilistic, apocalyptic, youthful, urban mentality set in old London coiling in on itself. Edition of 300.

SHALLOW WATERS

Equal Eyes

(Hospital - HOS208) LP $17.00 (Out-of-stock)

There is no solid footing in the first full length by this active live unit from Providence, Rhode Island, only a suffocating hail of falling rock, strangling vines, and sinkholes. Like a rabbit trapped in the hole of the snake's throat, this duo comprised of members of Immaculate: Grotesque and Em Dath Rir batters and tears its way through six tracks of power electronics, eco-fallout and revolutionary anger. Offering not one moment of relief throughout this litany of rage, Shallow Waters separate themselves from the pack with the focus of a sniper and the fury of napalm.

SICKNESS / WOLF EYES

There Is A Part Of Me You Will Never Know

(Hospital - HOS209) LP $16.75 (Out-of-stock)

The first collaboration by these two legends is not haphazard but symbiotic; it reaches new places, this dark casket of scorched earth sounds, the remains of the cracks at the aftershock of discovery. Reminding us of the peaks in the artists’ catalogs, There Is A Part Of Me You Will Never Know processes the deepest sounds of four masters in haze of lone atmosphere and true noise. This is not not a terror shock, this is the end.

SILENT SERVANT

Negative Fascination

(Hospital - HOS357) CD $14.50 (Out-of-stock)

On the first official full length album from Silent Servant, long-time followers will feel the effects of a die cast over a decade of precision and dedication to underground minimalist electronic music. DJ and one of the founding producers of the Sandwell District label, Juan Mendez filters his interpretations of early post-punk through the monolithic works of Basic Channel and blends them with a progressively nihilistic vision of Industrial. He utilizes a relentless and uncompromising mastery of hard-as-nails sequencer techno at the forefront with dystopian atmospherics filling the void. Negative Fascination bridges disparate factions on ideological grounds, regardless of sound in the age of mutation.

SKIN CRIME

Case Studies In Early Taxidermy Techniques

(Hospital - HOS-400) 20xCD $125.00 (Out-of-stock)

The creator and main operator of legendary and eerie label Self Abuse Records, Patrick O’Neil founded Skin Crime in 1993-94 out of the morbid surrealism of mother project Hanged Man’s Orgasm. One of the earliest and most influential American noise institutions from the ’90s, Skin Crime is the missing link between European musique concrète, Japanese noise, and the gritty abstract electronics of what became the glory and gory days of American harsh noise — the largely undocumented moment when noise broke away from industrial to destroy further its electronic roots. No mere bedroom project, Skin Crime distinguished itself as a real dedicated live noise band with a rotating lineup surrounding their core as a three-piece; highly detailed, ascending compositions offset with their forceful and dynamic textures. Includes: Desecration (Self Abuse 1994); Prenatal (Self Abuse 1994); Eyestrain (Self Abuse 1995); Electroshock Treatment (Self Abuse 1995); Genital Modification (G.R.O.S.S. 1995); Urge (Bloodlust! 1996); Whorebutcher (Mother Savage 1996); Burn (Less Than Zero 1996); King Of The Death Match (Spite 1999); Audio Pathology (Armed And Loaded 1998); Tsunami (Alienation 2000); Parasite (Xerxes 2001); Skin Crime (Hospital Productions 2003); Trauma (Self Abuse 1996); Monster (Self Abuse 1997); previously unreleased studio and live recordings; early versions of Audio Pathology tracks; compilation and split tracks. Cloth-bound foil-stamped box with ribbon, including individual wallets, 40-page booklet and double-sided poster. Edition of 300.

STILLBIRTH

Toward Sailor

(Hospital - HOS316) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Long-awaited first LP of imaginary electronics conversation through which a story is told of people who never existed, of happy depression, of cures that never bloomed. A small bowl of grass is ground up by the pestle and gulf mist sprays the players on the rocky beach. For fans of Brume, Keith Rowe, and atmospheric Ramleh. Edition of 200.

VARIOUS ARTISTS

Like a Frog In Winter

(Hospital - HOS138) LP + 7-inch $30.00 (Out-of-stock)

In 2004 while residing in Providence, Dominic Fernow of Prurient and Hospital began compiling Like A Frog in Winter, in response to his perceptions that noise had become rather hi-fi, technological, and cold -- entertainment rather than entertaining, something clean, something stimulating. Fernow's choices represent a more psychological, minimal, dismal, and rejected feeling, and calls for a return to the fetishistic and erotic attitude of noise -- and a negative one at that. Participating criminals, in order of incarceration: Ffh, A Fail Association, Immaculate:Grotesque, Cleanse, Pedestrian Deposit, Chrysalis, Ahlzagailzehguh, Habeeb, Craniopagus, Alberich, Bereft, Barrikad, Prurient, Sewer Election, Panicsville, Filthy Turd, Omei, The Seven Arts, Age Of Enlightenment, Mark Solotroff, Whorebutcher, Climax Denial, Stegm, Burden.

VATICAN SHADOW

It Stands To Conceal

(Hospital - HOS369) 3xLP $45.00 (Out-of-stock)

Militant religious industrial in a dub techno / ambient vein, leaning somewhere between Sandwell District and early Aphex Twin. Hospital’s vinyl reissue includes limited edition cassettes: Jordanian Descent; Ghosts Of Chechnya; and Atta’s Apartment Slated For Demolition. Gatefold jacket. Edition of 911.

VIODRE

Interpol Alchemi

(Hospital - HOS161) CD $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

Harsh noise and sound collage by this Long Island, New York group formed in 2001 by John Vibg. Known for ultra-violent live performances (consisting of up to nine collaborators at a time) and layered cut-up recordings, ranging from musique concrète to harsh cut-up noise.

WOLF EYES

Always Wrong

(Hospital - HOS245) CD $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

(Hospital - HOS245) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

Always Wrong is a mantra of severity, coming forth from the piles of tape loops and effects, the bulk of tables reeling with electronics having been shed. This clarity does not sacrifice intensity. Wolf Eyes have crafted a statement with maturity that stands at the top of their mysterious discography. Young, Olson, and Connelly have been scouring audiences across the globe with acid-drenched industrial noise and dub terror psychedelia, establishing themselves as the trailblazers of a genre and pioneers of the long-form noise tour. This is the most organic of the full lengths, but also the harshest and most dissonant. “Cellar” immediately sets the pace of barraged edits and percussive electronics as startling vocals spit from the dry throat and remain unfiltered, breathing for the first time a clear litany of scorn. Throughout the album non-electronic beats created from live drums replace programming while colliding tape loops and junk metal bring the unstable rhythms of a house with eroding foundation. “Living Stone” shows a more natural state of acoustic composition, highlighting the despondent subtle plucking of controlled guitar improvisation that could come from nature’s ghost. Forge onward through “We All Hate You,” with its loud, tonal horns and architecturally placed electronics. “Broken Order” takes hold with shrill feedback fueling industrial cannon blasts of white hot noise that burn the body from the neck down. The closing track “Droll / Cut The Dog” is an eerie harmonica-driven death march straight out of Once Upon a Time in the West.

YELLOW TEARS

Don't Cry

(Hospital - HOS246) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

The sound of a drop of urine pushed through an infected urethra. An uncomfortable attraction to the golden realms of natural expulsion, this is the audio collage equivalent of a child’s worst day at a carnival as an aktionist nightmare of disturbing imagery and sounds. On Don’t Cry these young masters carve sculptures of depravity using god knows what for source sounds. The listener is introduced to a mostly quiet, subtle psychology of fear, childhood trauma and locked cellars. Power comes from the absence the familiar. Separating themselves from the narcissistic herd, the band requires decades of therapy to begin to solve their problems. Bad dreams are supposed to be frightening.
