The never ending stream of good, concentrated efforts of Michael Idehall are delving further into his own aesthetics and esoteric messages. With “Aion Reborn” he treads on the same path that have been created since the start, but he opens up to a softer yet harsh landscape of sound that brings forth the most deranged, beautiful experiences yet.
Most of the tracks are entwined with one another, creating a dynamic thread that runs through the whole album. There is not much to add to an almost perfected sound, but yet he manages to fit different meanings and sounds into an already crammed soundscape. He is a genrebender by nature and there is no certain word that can put these works into a specific genre, which is refreshing.
We’ve always liked the warmth of his sound emanating from below, the atmosphere swings a heavy hand onto you and you’re hooked from the first track and all the way through. Luckily we get to exclusively premiere “In The Black Tower Of Alamut” from this album, and you can stream it down below.
Make sure to pre-order this album from Raubbau, it will be released on the 12th of September.
An homage to the solitary lifestyle of the “global” musician or DJ? An ode to all the nights spent thinking about what could’ve been done better, where one should’ve been otherwise? The titles of the tracks suggests so.
David Bremer is surprisingly vivid musically for a first time listener and experienced field recordings listener, there’s a coating of overwhelming ambient music that drives the point home musically in tracks that are unusually short for these kinds of genres – in “Paradise Refuted” – his first “proper” release in years, on Fang Bomb.
The music itself is unsettling and doesn’t paint the picture of globalism in a positive light, it is like modern architecture – something that should be in the scrapyard of the past. A brutalistic take musically as if derived directly from the style of architecture itself, depressive, nihilistic, hollow – three words we find describe it the best. Don’t forget to strap in, as there’s a hint of hope beneath the layers upon layers of destructiveness – a glimmer of light that seeps through the cracks.
We’re just waiting to be at that end station where everything suddenly shines, or when the rain finally pours down a warm summer night – like the nights we’ve had before, at least here in Sweden, not too long ago. The sudden realization that everything can be over in a snap, the realization that months of agony have finally come to a halt. There are many emotions that overwhelm you when listening to “Paradise Refuted“.
Some people would just consider it to be background noise, but there’s a lot going on that you have to have a keen ear to be susceptible to, it is like your inner mind getting rid of every noisy encounter you’ve had throughout the day – every meaningless thought that have gone, a relocation of your soul into the music and the soul restored in yourself.
You can listen to the track “Solitude Hotel” exclusively here on Repartiseraren, purchase the cassette whose official release-date was today on the 29th of August.
This is one of the most interesting releases coming up on Malignant Records this year, Italy’s Eidulon unleashes a brutal combination of dark ambient and apocalyptical orchestral music – a combination that is rare to hear – within the forthcoming release “Combustioni“. It has been a long time since we last supported Malignant Records, but that’s only because there have been no room for more then a year to get a hold of something from their releases – we blame ourselves for that, rightfully so.
Now we’re bringing you one of the most fearsome collaborations this year, Eidulon utilizes the help of Naxal Protocol for a noise-oriented, crackling atmosphere – layered beneath the might of Nordvargr’s vocals that crush through everything. In collaboration with Malignant Records we’re pleased to bring you “The Hierarchy Of The Inner Planes (feat. Naxal Protocol And Nordvargr)“, taken from the forthcoming CD-release on the 25th of March.
If you haven’t already pre-ordered this release, make sure you do and fetch the CD as well when it is available. You can stream the song exclusively via Repartiseraren’s soundcloud weeks before the release is out, down below.
Dreamy, dreary breakbeats with tight IDM-influences is what makes or breaks La Bile – a french project having the honor of being released by Tripalium Corp – in their Digital Mutant Series (number 22), titled: “La Sublimation du Poulpe“. There’s a plethora of different electronic influences in each track on this release, from a multiverse of techno, acid and otherwise obscure electronic genres. Fetching the best from each genre, not compromising with the experimental overtones and the grittiness of it all.
We’re proud to be premiering a track from the B-Side of this release, in our ears one of the best tracks on the release, “La Piscine” delves into the human psyche and opens up a world of mystery, through fast-paced drums and constant flickering, there’s an urgency that doesn’t die out until the song finally fades into nothingness.
You better act quickly if you want it in physical form, as there’s only nine cassettes left of forty in total, so pre-order it from here, and stream the exclusive track from Repartiseraren’s own Soundcloud way before it is released.
Not to be confused with Duran Duran, the more experimentally oriented electronic musician Duran Duran Duran (Ed Flis) is now having his latest release put out on Tripalium Corp – as a part of one of their ongoing release-series – Digital Mutant. The title of this release is “Bolo Trax” and sports some very intuitive, beautiful and forceful ambient-styled electronica on the a-side of the release, whilst the b-side is filled with a claustrophobic and abrasive experimental kind of electronic music.
What’s exciting about this release is that it is a very limited edition cassette, only forty copies made, which after it comes out will become a sought after item. Even though some of the music isn’t that appealing when listening through it the first time, like many good releases it starts to grow on you and certain themes can be sought out within the music and yourself as you connect to it on a weird metaphysical level.
We’re proud to be collaborating with Tripalium Corp in getting to exclusively premiere their releases, and this one is no exception. You will be able to stream the song “Sinking About You”, taken from the a-side of the release, exclusively on Repartiseraren nine days before the actual release. Tune in to it down below and don’t forget to pre-order the cassette. It is also available as a digital release.
Finally, Vanessa Irena of Knifesex – as she calls her solo-project – is getting a proper debut-release via 3t3rnal Records on the 17th of November. Repartiseraren have gotten the exclusive opportunity to premiere a full track from her album “Babalon“. According to herself the inspiration for this release have come through an appreciation of the occult, a dedication to the apocalyptic. The ritualistic nature of her music is expanded upon in this release, for those of you who’ve heard “Blood From Stone” from the first compilation on Repartiseraren will not be disappointed – it is more of the same and even furthers the experimental, but ambitious electronic sound.
There is no secret either that she draws these inspirations together within a feminist approach. The album consists of seven songs and we’re going to give you “Living Flame” to listen to, a week before the release-date. You will be able to purchase the album digitally through 3t3rnal Records on the 17th of November. Listen to the exclusive song down below.
With stunning aesthetic visuals provided by Svartaphotography, the ethereal vision of Ele Ypsis collapses and is built up within their latest album “Meiosis“. Musically it would not stand on its own with just the percussive IDM and breakbeat sounds, ambient it’d be a shell of what it could be – together with Laure Le Prunenec’s vocals – everything starts and ends in total disharmonious harmony. A double-edged metaphysical sword thrust deep within yourself. What a marvelous piece of music everything on this album is. One can not, however, underestimate Stélian Derenne’s craftiness when it comes to the musical composition, as the vocals benefit largely from that suspicious and ever changing atmosphere.
We’re glad to be premiering the best song on that release, which is: “Diplotene“, as it boils down into a common denominator in terms of how the album can be perceived, what elements are best fitted together with each other and how music really can stand out from the norm – in terms of ambition and overall quality. It is an outrageously great song and we were surprised by it ourselves, having listened to it over and over again.
In collaboration with M-Tronic Label, four days before the official release date – we’re proud to give you the ability to listen to “Diplotene” in full via our Soundcloud. Pre-order the vinyl release, here.
