There are lots of percussion and sound bites on this album. We are introduced to the album with an American news report hinting at what we are to expect throughout the album. “Age of Terror” has an interesting introduction leading into some programmed ... See full review

posted a review of Soft Cell - Bedsitter. over 8 years ago
This was one of my more favoured Soft Cell singles. Tim Pope’s video always did the single credit showing Dave Ball wandering around a lonely London. Marc waking from his sleazy bedsit lost in Soho kidding himself he was having fun. The song is full of ... See full review
posted a review of Tampasm - This Is Carnage. over 8 years ago
“This is Carnage” was released on a compact disc single as a promotional copy only. It is one track only of punk/rock with some keyboards. The track sounds very commercial but seemed to be sadly unsuccessful, I don’t know if it was ever fully released ... See full review

Contemptus Mundi consists of two tracks making up about forty five minutes of dark, ambient sound-scapes. The initial track introduces its read text after a three and a half minute introduction. The text originates from the Satanic Scriptures by Peter ... See full review
posted a review of Lustmord - [Other]. over 8 years ago
After battling with a piece of sticky tape to unseal the nice digipak (now marked from the tape!) I sat and listened. This is dark ambience at its best; this as with other work by Lustmord creates those dark, thought provoking atmospheres in the ... See full review
posted a review of Isomer - Serpent Age. over 8 years ago
The opening track is one of the highlights of this album. Star of Sarajevo conjures up a luscious opening ambience, with ominous overtones. At just over eleven and a half minutes, Omphalos introduces harder darkness setting this album apart from other ... See full review

This was one of the first releases for Cold Spring back in 1992. It was a compilation of work featuring mostly drum and percussion pieces.

posted a review of All Hail The Transcending Ghost - All Hail The Transcending Ghost. over 8 years ago
I knew I would like this release when I read about it.
The initial track (the only named track) opens up with reversed audio leading into breathing. There are many interesting sounds on this album, but not just normal snatched samples. The sounds on ... See full review
posted a review of Isomer - Zero Lounge. over 8 years ago
‘Zero Lounge’ comes in a cardboard fold out sleeve, accompanied by a booklet. The first track “Twilight Revisions” is six minutes of space, preparing you for the next seven tracks. For this genre I was surprised to hear a guitar loop on the next track, ... See full review

posted a review of Tenek - Stateless. over 8 years ago
This is a synth album that starts with a guitar – blasting into the albums intro of ‘Breakdown’. All the tracks on this album have great hooks and have you remembering the tune weeks afterwards. Stand out tracks on this album are ‘I Don’t Cry (For You) ... See full review
posted a review of Martin Carradus - Analog. over 8 years ago
There are some nice analogue sounds on this album, a nice collection of vintage synthesisers are used throughout. (The Polymoog stands out and sounds great). This is a must for Gary Numan fans. Nice digipak packaging and artwork.

I liked the way each ... See full review
