SISTRENATUS - 'Division One' CD 14€ (Cold Spring)
Powerful debut of the Canadian noise project. 'Division One' is harsher and more bombastic than Harlow MacFarlane's now defunct project FUNERARY CALL. A true onslaught of Black Ambient, Power Noise and Death Industrial. This is the much anticipated album, after the well received track on our legendary SWARM sampler.
SISTRENATUS - 'Sensitive Disturbance' CD 14€ (Cold Spring)
Blurring the lines between Dark Ambient, Industrial and Noise, Sistrenatus storms forth, shifting between oppressive aggression and unsettling atmospheres.

An aural journey through the urban decay of abandoned factories, scorched landscapes and underground passageways. "Sensitive Disturbance" is an abrasive rendition of the industrial revolution in its darkest phases.

SLEEP RESEARCH FACILITY - 'Deep Frieze' CD 14€ (Cold Spring)
Ultra deep, glacial Dark Ambient, based around Antarctic co-ordinates. The polar regions are awe-inspiring environments of inhospitable minimalism, and at the same time there's a beautiful serenity to be found in their uncharted bleakness. There's a powerful purity and a timelessness to be found there; snow which has lain un-trampled for millennia and ice which formed eons ago; mountain ranges and deserts and rivers to be found if you look. 'Deep Frieze' is SRF's second album for Cold Spring and here deep, resonant, abyss-like drones shine forth from icy chasms below. Jewelcase with foldout map booklet.
SLEEP RESEARCH FACILITY - 'Nostromo' CD 14€ (Cold Spring)
Ultra deep ambience, based on the first 8 minutes of the movie 'Alien' which depicts the deep space haulage vessel slowly moving through the void.

Colossal dark ambience from the abyss, with beautiful artwork that evokes the sinister atmosphere of the ship. Reissue with bonus track 'Narcissus'.

SPLINTERSKIN - 'Wayward Souls' CD 14€ (Cold Spring)
Splinterskin unveils his spell after years of solitude and hermetic isolation, in the form of a harsh, dark folk music. His tales are told using an old classical guitar accompanied by haunting vocals, violin, and soothing whispers cradled in the delicate atmospheres of autumn. A collection of tales blending life and death, entities and creatures, hidden wisdom, unknown places, pain and suffering, folklore, possession, insanity, nature and the dark world that surrounds. Yet there are no words to truly describe Splinterskin's message or music.
STREICHER - 'War Without End' CD 14€ (Cold Spring)

The original cassettes are now sought after collectors items. STREICHER utilise a mix of total noise / power noise with covert military recordings, military equipment, radar signals, military telecommunication signals.

The Sutcliffe Jügend filthy dirt-mess of an album that is Pigdaddy is now available on Cold Spring. Six stories of mind-fucking depravity.

Hear Pigdaddy and you will never feel clean again. Cover painting by Kevin Tomkins.
SVARTSINN "Elegies For The End" 2CD 14€ (Cyclic Law)
The 4th album by Norwegian dark ambient act, Svartsinn, shows a more melodic yet rather obscure side of the artist. 2009 is the 10th year of Svartsinn's existence and it has inspired Pettersen to try a different approach and to experiment with some new ideas. This new musical journey deals with sadness and melancholy, about not knowing one's place in this vast and at times uninviting world, how it can become a daily torment to not be able to find one's reason to exist. And it's also about finding one's personal path, finding ways to endure and hopefully transcend these engulfing life challenges.
The Double CD includes a unique collaboration track with Dahlia's Tear and a 10 years anniversary bonus disc containing exclusive remixes by Triarii, Kammarheit, Letum, Life Toward Twilight, Gustaf
Hildebrand, Tenebrious, New Risen Throne, MGriffin, Visions and Hovmod. All acts giving very
interesting perspectives on some of Svartsinn's previously released tracks, making this second disc a very special homage to the singular world of Svartsinn.

SINKE DUS "Akrasia" CD 12€ (Cyclic Law)
Akrasia is an old question dealing with the weakness of the will. To behave "akratically" is when one acts against his better judgement, committing acts that are known to be wrong but yet still going through with the motion. Markus Lonebrink wanted to explore not so much the philosophical issues at hand, but rather the subjective experience of akrasia itself. To learn of the underlying motives of when one acts akratically. Certain events in the akratic process felt natural to him and it was those he tried to integrate into these soundscapes. There are no conclusions described in the music, but there might be a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel and perhaps the shadow of a hint of why we humans sometimes act as irrationally as we do. A shared quest to gain better knowledge of oneself through this self-revisionistic ambient journey filled with ethereally lush passages that give way to a truly visionary and immersive experience. The album also features a special collaboration with Par Bostrom of KAMMARHEIT.
1000 copies in fold out gatefold cardboard sleeve.
7 Tracks. Running Time: 45:50
SGHOR - "Le Grand Mystere" Profi CDR 2009 Price: 8€ (Beast Of Prey) / dark ambient / deep darksounds / New release in Colaboration Beast Of Prey, Polish projekt of dark ambient with very dark, black and eternal sounds. "Le Grand Mystere" = 70 min album. "...Black, cold, the surrounding space. Without sound, without a bit of breath. Somewhere far away beyond the borders of the senses, outs of time, you can hear hopelessly long cries, sad, never-ending monotonous song of emptiness. Emptiness fills everything. Even hearts so far full of life now are dead..."

The future is now, absolutely every single prediction of the cyberpunk movement have been fulfilled turning the world we live in it's totality. If you are not a zombie you have already realized this. Welcome to the reflection of the disaster. Born under the bar codes oppression we keep going with firm steps towards a world in which simulation is more important than the truth. Big corporations have drowned us, and a rebellion in the networks seem to be the last resource to get to the explicit freedom. UNIX warriors get their weapons ready... Front Line Assembly hacked by Chicago’s acid-house, electro music touched by the hand of Belgium’s new beat, Front 242 and Max Headroom copulating and Afrika Bambatta and Skinny Puppy kissing each other under neo- Tokyo’s light. New age old school.
