Magnetism Delayed

The re-press of the BLOODYMINDED "Magnetism" CD has been delayed due to the fact that the pressing plant accidentally pressed the Mauthausen Orchestra "Where Are We Going?" CD and sent those to me. My apologies for the inconvenience to those who were waiting for "Magnetism." The plant should be in touch with a new ETA shortly.

* EDIT: These are actually "Where Are We Going?" covers and disc art with the "Magnetism" music on the disc. What a weird fuck-up! Very rare!! Collectors item!!! The plant assures me that I will have a replacement shipment by the end of next week.

Impossibly Small!

I do not know if this is the device that will ultimately replace BLOODYMINDED's battered battalion of Roland MC-202 analog synths, but the new Korg Monotron just arrived and even through its external speaker it has some promising sounds.

It is actually only slightly bigger than the BlackBerry that I took this photograph with:

Still Single on Locrian Territories


Locrian – Territories LP (At War with False Noise/Basses Frequences/Small Doses/BloodLust!)

Chicago-based bad vibe outfit Locrian has been kicking around the primordial, sidelong growing-evil threat thing for a while now, and are starting to unify their stance across separate genres of metal and dark electronics. There’s a few songs in here (like the opener “Inverted Ruins”) that ought to be where these guys decide to head out to, finally – it’s slow, tortured, brutal evidence of deadly sins crawlin’ out of the ground, layering low industrial drone with piercing electronics, death-march drumming and the miserable howls of Bloodyminded’s Mark Solotroff. Elsewhere, they lean into masterful dark drone, and they close both sides of this LP with straight-ahead black metal. The drone works – that’s where this group comes from – but the USBM is so common, and often so not exciting, that even these competent examples draw away from the nastiness this group has already generated. A mixed bag where the hits are awesome and the rest is just OK. (http://www.atwarwithfalsenoise.com) (http://www.bassesfrequences.com) (http://small-doses.com) (http://bloodlust.blogspot.com)

A different perspective than the previously posted video from Heavy Focus. Crisper sound, too, perhaps? Thanks to James for pointing it out. Thanks to "Bushmoth" for filming and posting. In two parts:
