Two new tapes out today

[ANGST_34] Burial Hex - Assumption / Ascension 

For over a decade now, Burial Hex, the eponymous maestro of Horror Electronics, has offered us a confounding glimpse into the dark night of the soul. On this powerful offering, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Clay Ruby and cellist Angela McJunkin gracefully weave through a shocking juxtaposition of kosmische neo-classical and power electronics. In an attempt to depict the mysteries of the Assumption and Ascension, Burial Hex makes a harrowing musical journey that ultimately culminates in a peaceful resolution with a very uncharacteristic piece of monastic folk pastorale. 

c-35, black tape. 
Edition of 73

 [ANGST_35] Cassandra - Claustrofobia 

Second tape for this rome-based act, following the first effort "E/E" (2o13) and the collective "Aktion#1" tape (2o14) _ alongside autocancrena / Negativeself / A Happy Death. / Irs.  

3 hellish new tracks offering a blend of death-concrete/ritual noise of total malevolence.

some winter tapes out next days + more on their way

very last copies of back catalogue

sabato 10 ottobre 2015

A couple of weeks ago we released and started spreading the new batch, but once again, due to recording trips and various life-dragging delays still had to write about it.

4 new tapes are out and as usual you can order them writing at

                        [ANGST_29] Unexamine - Roessler, K. - c-3o

Solid noise act from Portland consisting of Charlie Mumma (Sissy Spacek, Kira, Surplus Killing, Antropofago Ateo label) + Danny Costa (Rohit, Cost/Worth, L'Acephale, Nux Vomica) with a fair share of tapes and 7'' on A.A., Heavy Psych, Worthless, Chondritic Sound, Oxen, etc. In the red dense and dynamic harsh noise, brainbombing crusty rumblings, tape saturation fucking heaven bliss. Featuring / mastered by Brent / HHL (also in Kira with Charlie - tape on ANGST coming up for them as well)
+ also featuring Danny Propert / Legless. Chrome tapes.

[ANGST_3o] Skin Graft - Subterrane - c-32

No introduction needed for Cleveland's finest. Wyatt Howland keeps painting his personal, blacked, dismal vision with another great mood-changing tape.
Two long untitled tracks of junk metal crunching / bashing, sonic debris from conscience's darkest corners, unrelenting wrath, meditative discomfort, overall tension. Chrome tapes.

[ANGST_31] Wish For Skin - Measured Absence - c-2o

Wish For Skin is Erik Brown from Massachusetts, that also works as Scald Hymn and Streiber and in Under Nylon [track down also his previous efforts on Unseen Force, Bacteria Field, Summer Isle, and his own Love is the law tape label]. We're happy that this work puts an end to a moment of hiatus of the project, and that Erik crafted for us two awesome long rugged tracks of stripped down, painfully emotive PE. Uneasy haunting moods, chocking screams of despair drenched in muffled / crispy noises.
50 copies on chrome cassettes. Artwork has two different xerox blends, on same hi quality paper (25 of each were made).

[ANGST_32] Umgreifende - s/t - c-2o

New duo based in rome,  two tracks captured and mixed live on a 4 track tape recorder. Transcendent concrète musique, murky feel.
Pieces of microtonal / detuned guitars, burman bells, analogue synths rumblings, treated tapes of ritual hindu / persian music and field recordings, hisses, delirium pannings, amplified objects / metals, as much as all the silence inbetween them.

lunedì 4 maggio 2015

First part of the spring batch is ready.
Four new tapes are out.

A Happy Death. / To Mankind - Nil. - c5o [ANGST]

Delayed since forever for every sort of trouble - as every proper damned release demands - the split tape between A Happy Death. and To Mankind went finally out in the cruelest month.
Both projects are based in Italy and offer some kind of death industrial noise with several similarities in feelings / sounds / attitude / hatred. Debut effort for To Mankind [formerly Cruel Cadaver Exquis, also gtr player in crust/d-beat band Polis Äckel] and new pollution from A Happy Death. [also involved with Malastrana, Campomorto, Maldoror's Dog, Degrado, etc] following few other tapes shared with Shiver, Negativeself, autocancrena and some collaborations. 3 tracks each, recorded and mixed between 2o13 and 2o14. Ultra-negatively charged filthy electronics. Amp crashes, layers of various junk and dying synths, tape saturation folding sad atmospheric landscapes of concrete discontent. Unpleasant views, constant anxiety, increasing lack of meaning. An intimate examination of the void left from emotiveness slowly turned into pain and detachment due to cold brutality of everyday horror. Featuring Mauro S. [Shiver / Deprivation / Diazepam tapes] providing some more despair with his extra synth in the opening track. Comes in standard j-case with collage inlay + 3 extra cardboard cards. 7o black / hand-scratched c-5o.


Campomorto - s/t - c4o [ANGST / Scorze]

Campomorto is a collaboration unit between autocancrena and A Happy Death.  
The first self titled tape is out now, co_produced by both members' labels _  Scorze Records + ANGST . 3 tracks, nearly 4o minutes of desolation from this discomforting swamp. Amplified ritual metals / objects, Microkorg, field recordings, broken tapes.  
The swamp is still here to us. Self isolated noise influenced by old italian and swedish postmortem disarray. 

Recorded and processed by A. + L. at Cursed Christ studio during 2o14. 

66 pro dubbed black tapes, pro printed inlay and an extra cardboard card.

No excerpts.

LCB / Wertham - Contempt - c5o [ANGST]

"Contempt", a brand new release that is both a collaboration and a split between Tuscany's acclaimed extreme noise LE COSE BIANCHE, and WERTHAM, since two decades, Lombardy's supplier of antisocial electronics. LCB delivers 4 tracks in its personal style, featuring highly saturated sounds and Italian shouted manic vocals
WERTHAM trade mark full-frontal analog aggression, vocal wreckage and explicit samples. Furthermore, thee tape is completed by two collaboration tracks blending both styles together. As the title suggests, "Contempt" includes 10 hymns for the socially impaired, focusing on obsessions, disabilities, phobias, predatory instincts and good-old antisocial tendencies.
c-5o, comes in black and white J-Card illustrated by Marco Deplano.

Excerpts from all tracks :

Vomir / Nascitari ‎- Sameness  - c6o  [ANGST / Signora Ward]

No particular introduction needed.
Vomir (fr) and Nascitari (it) are two of the few real masters of hnw . Together with The Rita, Ramirez and very few others, among those still delivering quality releases with personal research /  concepts (or no concepts) . Among those that spent years and years of true morbid obsession on sound,  leading each one to an unmistakable touch .

On our tape they join forces in two long slabs of total void and bleak crackling slow motion transcendence, for an hour of pure noise bliss.
9o copies
