This ep on cd-r is black metal with a lots of 80s influences,here the description from his bandcamp page where this album is not listed.

"Atmospheric Blackened Death from the catacombs of Turin. A unique one man act that rips up the book on the Death Metal by numbers shit with many unexpected twist and turns. Completed with a putrid and cavernous production that puts over produced and sanitized so called “Death Metal” back in the pop charts where it belongs"

STONE BODY-Canabal Parasitical-(Self Released-Northern Ireland-c90-1994)

A strange project hailing from Northern Ireland,I think the  artist here is Jeremy Herron and from this tape I can understand that He is into sound collage,field recordings and  spoken words.
On this long tape-work additional conversations are added to some noise,weird mixes of various music stolen from  random radio shows and other confused passages of instruments and voices.
A very good tape of  infinite chaotic yet creative sound sculptures + pagan obscure voices whispering messages of life,death,pain and pleasure.
Nice one.

OUTRAGE-Smile Of Death-(Self released-Italy-1986)+Outrage-(Self Released-Italy-1987)

Outrage were a thrash metal combo hailing from Rome(Italy)
They were active in the mid 80s,they formed in 1984 and it seems that they were active until 1990.
Those demos show us a  good band of power thrash metal, both recordings are good too.
Thrash `till death!!!
smile of death


OLAF SEIDER-Industrial Revolution-(New Band Underground-Germany-c60-1993)

Olaf Seider is a German musician/sound designer and art director.
He`s involved in the experimental electronic music scene since 1986.
He also used those aliases Azreal, Olaf Seider Coincidence as names for other projects. He still active nowadays,you can check his webpage here.(It is in German only).
This tape offer us a good mix of raw noise and deep conversations(again only in German) bringing us in a  dark dimension of horror and  mysticism.
Of course I am talking about my sensations only,in fact I cannot understand German and so I am  very probably missing the most of the meanings of this tape-work.
Definitely a very good tape for people into dark and creepy sounds/messages.
New Band Underground is his personal label founded in 1992,I guess it is not active any longer.
Enjoy it.

EMBOLIA ASSASSINA-Discarika Screaming-(Contaminated Productions-Italy-c60-1992)

Another tape by the the ghost collective E.A., project covered in this blog already few times.This is the review that I have passed to Vita Ignes Corpus Lignum blog with my original rip of this tape that I am going to re-post here.

"The idea behind this project was to use the sounds from the videotapes from the 1st squat in Foggia, called  Discarika(as it was an old discharge), Raff and Mario with Megawatt`s help and machines extracted the sounds from different videotapes of this squat:there are then sounds of demonstrations, gigs, debates and daily life of this squat mixed with additional sounds/noises created by E.A.!
It is a full fun-experiment of sound collage and field recordings.
The tape was coming in a very special package made of hard cardboard where on the front the tape plastic case was glued on the cardboard and on the same face of the board it was added a photocopy treated with an acid, so to make a blurred graphics work. On the back, there was a presentation of this project both in Italian and English. 
For this project E.A. stands for Embolia Assassina, It means Killing Embolism."

EPA NYYRO-Rock`n`Roll Years 1981-1991-(Joukkohourma Prods-Finland-c90-1992)

28 songs on this long c90 exploring 10 years of  life of this unknown band from Finland.The title of the cassette talk about Rock`n`Roll : It is definitely a little joke,in fact the music here it  is a sick form of weird experiments with normal instruments played in a funny yet chaotic way.On the top of it you`ll get screams yelled with  deranged vocals,and it`is only a pity that every song is sung in Finnish language,so I have no idea what are the subjects of those crazy songs.Every now and again their music change for something a bit more conventional but the change last very short time.
Beside having few little troubles trying to explain you the music of this project or band and knowing that they were active in the 80s in Finland,Epa Nyyro remains a mystery to me:
Anybody with more info about them out there???
Joukkomurha Prods(Engl. Mass Murder or Massacre) was a small label managed by Jupe Luoma in Vaasa(Finland).The title of the label was later watered down to a more neutral-sounding (maybe even a wee bit more) JM-Tapes.The label was originally started just for fun, as a continuation to the creative stream of small press activity and it was active producing the plethora of cassette-only albums (or albums, as John Bartles would put it!) and compilations of folk / punk / electronic / aggressive / art music(k) and odd bits of sound all the way from Ohio to Okinawa.It was in action between 1989 and 1998. In total, there were more than 70 releases during that time of angst, madness and creativity,and yes there are lot of other releases by this label on this blog...
Enjoy it.

THE RORSCHACH GARDEN & MOATA OMEN-Pure NRG!-(Cat Killer-Germany-c90-1992)

The Rorschach Garden was founded in 1988, It  was the solo project of Philipp Münch, mainly known from his works as Synapscape. In 1997, he stopped this project due personal reasons. The Rorschach Garden was reactivated in 2001, made its first public appearance at the Maschinenfest 2002 in Aachen, Germany. After this, some other live perfomances were held with the help of some of Philipp's closer friends. Ever since, TRG has grown into a proper band with a steady lineup and a great reputation for live performances. Their musical style has developed into a unique blend of electronic pop music and defies genre limitations. Since 2008, no concerts have been played due to personal circumstances of the band members, yet there might possibly some again.-MySpace, Facebook-
Moata Omen is the personal project of  Sven Pügge also involved in the band  Ars Moriendi.

 This tape seems to be a full collaboration between the tape labels Fich-Art and Cat Killer,both german  and active since the 90s.

FACTOR X-Radio Dada n1(fulk songs)-(Maljugin Musik-Germany-c90-1992)+Shampoo Boots-(Self Released-UK-199?-c60)

Factor X was one of Shaun Robert's pseudonyms/projects/aliases. Factor X was founded by Shaun in 1983 as a conceptual idea. The first output was anti muzik and then moved to rough collage. Factor X ended in 1994. 
Shaun Robert (b. 1966, Brixham, Devon, England) started recording and making music since the age of 8 using tape machines by utilizing the pause button, crash editing sounds together. This was not seen as a form of art, more of a way to understand and adapt the world around him. Using a catalog of pseudonyms to do various projects, these creative outings became more and more like imaginary friends, coloring things with a rainbow of the mind’s eye.

MENACE DEMENT-Menace Dement-(Co-Production=Menace Dement /Nautilus-Italy-c30-1990)

This band was a side  project of Neil Burke(bass player of Born Against) and Patrick Blank (drummer of Undead and Black Snakes),they played  for a couple of years on the end of the 80s releasing only a 7inch called Nanna in 1991 on Lungcast Recs, a posthumous album on Vermiform in 1997  and this tape in 1990.
They play a rather insane form of post-punk mixed with some noise rock,tribal obsessive rhythms,some degenerated  blues and desperate   screaming vocals by the amazing Cassandra Stark.
This  tape came out as a  co-production:a good effort from the band and the legendary Italian label Nautilus,still very active, here their webpage.
Enjoy it.
