[Eg0_123] When We Live

After the beautiful single Frozen Time, When We Live (the collaborative project between Kirill Makushin (Russia) and Jerry Norton (USA)) is back on eg0cide with and enhanced version of their first full length self-titled album, that was recorded and first published in 2013 as a very limited CD-R. Their personal blend of melodic ambient pieces and droney, ghostly folk songs will be a perfect soundtrack for melancolic autumn evenings…

[Eg0_121] UNUNE : Movements In Decay

< UNUNE > * is the project of Stephen Surreal, a british musician active since 1979 who has taken part in the early industrial vibe. His music has evolved through the years, it is often more atmospheric, but always original and challenging  (don’t expect new-agish ambient here!) Movements in Decay belongs to Unune’s rather quiet and droney works. It includes abstract soundscapes as well as melancolic melodies – and always with a subtle work on textures and their layering.

In november eg0cide will also release a doubla album of live tracks of Unune and earlier projects (from 1979 to 2010s) that should finish to convince you that Stephen is a overlooked sound artist. Meanwhile you can check his bandcamp page for more albums.

*’ Unune is a little known derogative of the word untune,in this case – incapable of causing harmonious effect,it is also ( amongst other definitions ) both UN (male) & UNE (female).

[Eg0_119] Mescalibur : Larmes de feu

In his new album Larmes de feu (could be translated as Fire Tears), Mescalibur continues to explore the possibilities of his analogic synthesizer. This time the mood is rather dark and heavy. These 3 improvised tracks were indeed directly inspired by an intense state of pain caused by a long-term illness. Philippe of Mescalibur wrote more about this in text below (in french only, sorry) so we won’t add more on this subject. All we can say is that the musical result is a powerful tornado of sounds – minimal pulsations boosted and intensified until becoming slabs of sizzling noises or disintegrating themselves into crackling spectral drones- that should appeal to fans of experimental electronics and raw old school industrial

” Qui ? Quoi ? Ecoute, parle, l’autre et puis je ne sais pas plouf plouf, rien n’existe que je puisse prendre au sérieux,
il n’y a pas si longtemps tout était devant, là au premier plan, tout devait s’emboiter vite et parfaitement, une urgence insatiable .
La douleur est venu me disputer ce corps, l’habiter conjointement, me voilà colocataire sans avoir le moindre avis à émettre .
Tout le reste devient si flou et si distant, me voilà complètement fagocité, ligoté, puis petit à petit désassemblé , démonté morceau par morceau,
je navigue d’une douleur à l’autre, essayant de les rassembler, je me roule en boule, piéger la douleur dans ce corps et m’en extirper
sans passer par la case départ .
Voilà ça plane plus rien ne m’intéresse, je trouve toute cette agitation tellement ridicule, une Kyrielle d’égos aboyants des mots, tout ça
pour gouverner le monde, les autres, l’autre, juste eux même .
Rien plus rien, un troupeau de bovins bovinant bruyamment. Mais la vache produit du lait en quantité, le veau, boit le lait de la vache,
son regard s’éteint et il devient estomacs, peut être devrions nous ne plus boire le lait des bovins afin de redevenir humains .
Marcher à nouveau sur nos pattes de derrière, pour aller les uns derrière les autres au cinéma, au super marché, voter !
Puis à nouveau Boviner de concert, sans fin .
Peux pas regarder en arrière, y’a pas d’arrière, tout est là, instant, instantané, immédiat .
Toujours vivant, tellement vivant que ça fini par vous déchirer la mémoire qui vous vomi à la gueule tout vos arrières .
Mais y’a pas de passé, y’a que l’histoire, nos histoires vautrées sur nos vies, laminant nos corps de leurs souffrances .
Parfois je me dit pas plus loin, mais le plus loin, y’a pas, c’est comme l’arrière ni plus ni moins !
Alors je suis toujours là, je me tiens dans l’instant de ma vie, ainsi sans fin, écoutant tomber mes arrières dans mes plus loins,
sans mots pour dire, alors je pleure, l’histoire s’écoule par mes yeux, pour chaque larmes un corps se tord et puis s’efface,
mais rien n’est dit du début ou de la fin . “

 

[Eg0_117] Spleen : Detest

Spleen is an one-man project from Serbia which mixes dark ambient and atmospheric rock. Detest is an epic concept album dealing with the theme of misanthropy. It starts with an hypnotic ritual sequence, but later tracks also contains lots of industrial rock elements.  All along the album, bleak drones, crushing guitar riffs, pounding rythms and haranguing voices join their forces to take the listener into a world of morbid fixations and reclusive anger . If you are not afraid to explore the depth of such negative feelings, Detest will be a perfect soundtrack for your dark ruminations.
