GROBBING THRISTLE - "Hidden Strategies" digipack CD 2009 Price: 13€ (Beast Of Prey) /postindustrial / Who would expect that under the name Grobbing Thristle are hidden mutated clones of Genesis P. Orridge, will be surprised by the amount of sound strategies used by the Polish ensemble. On one of the levels Grobbing Thristle play steel symphony of postindustrial earthy Inferno. Noisy wind of clicks, cracks, laptop grinds, insect like microsamples and psychotic looped vocals lead into paranoic world like in novels of Philipa K.Dicka. The thing that scares here the most is by paradox, the most common and accustom element - voice. The words "...So yes I have to go now, so bye bye..." opening the album sound like a goodbye before descending into the abyss. But this is a hell of cybernetic robots - this is a music that brings pain. Fortunately for artistic might of the recordings GT knows how to dose it.

GRADUAL HATE & SILENCE IN FIRST DEGREE " Panopticon" DVD box 1CD+1DVD 14,50€ (GhRecords)
Dark environments, subliminal sound structures, oppression ...all wrapped in a meaningful video, which makes us discern what really lies.Work Dark made Experimental Ambient altogether with the
experimental group Argentine Silence in First Degree and Gradual Hate, based on the work of Jeremy Bentham and M.Foucault (Discipline and Punish).The panopticon develops out of the need for
surveillance shown in the plague. Plague measures were needed to protect society: the panopticon allows power to operate efficiently. It is a functional, permanent structure. The transition from
one to another represents the move to a society in which discipline is based on observation and examination. The disciplinary society is not necessarily one with a panopticon in every street: it
is one where the state controls such methods of coercion and operates them throughout society. The development of a disciplinary society involves socio-economic factors, particularly population
increase and economic development.
GRADUAL HATE & KENJI SIRATORI "Spoken Word" DVD box 3CDS 12€ (GhRecords)
Dark atmospheres, spread rhythms that they become on the other hand in dancing and other more slowed, they are fundamentally the new bet that “Spoken Word” it presents us in their musical
section. That yes, always under the common denominator that surrounds the music created by Miguel LS: their complexity, darkness and enigmatic attraction.
Strangers trips CyberPunks narrated by Avantgarde artist Kenji Siratori: a Japanese cyberpunk writer who is currently bombarding the internet with wave upon wave of highly experimental, uncompromising, progressive, intense prose. His is a writing style that not only breaks with tradition, it severs all cords, and can only really be compared to the kind of experimental writing techniques employed by the Surrealists, William Burroughs and Antonin Artaud. Embracing the image mayhem of the digital age, his relentless prose is nonsensical and extreme, avant-garde and confused, with precedence given to twisted imagery, pace and experimentation over linear narrative and character development. With unparalleled stylistic terrorism, he unleashes his literary attack. An unprovoked assault on the senses. Blood Electric (Creation Books) was acclaimed by David Bowie.
