KER KRISE/SADO TERROR AUTOSIMBOLISTIK-Split Tape-(Slaughter Productions-Italy-c60-199?)

Sorry not much info about this Slaughter Productions release. The year is not stated. Ker krise is Diego Stellino playing a kind of deep noize industrial. Although there are 4 tracks on the cover sleeve; on the tape there are not marks between the tracks, and it was just impossible to cut those tracks--after listing Ker Krise side I Decided that to experience fully his message the best is just to go with the flow of his de-constructed noises.
On the other side: Sado Terror Autosimbolistik. No idea who`s playing(He might be Atrax Morgue with another name, but I am not sure). This side is a full on breaks-stop and go, and although 3 tracks are listed; it was very difficult for me to decide where one ends and the other starts. Also in this case I decided that the best is to follow the continuum of this journey.
This is music for death chambers, sounds for dungeons of torture and pain, sonics for nightmares, expressions of fear, or call it whatever you feel like, but this is just great.
For all the lovers of Slaughter productions- this is a pure gem.

Track listing:

A1 Ker Krise - To Gate's Voice
A2 Ker Krise - Falling Sins
A3 Ker Krise - Mind Distortion
A4 Ker Krise - File.dth
Automatik Ritual Noise
B1 Sado Terror Autosimbolistik - Pain/Pleasure
B2 Sado Terror Autosimbolistik - Suffering/Ecstasy
B3 Sado Terror Autosimbolistik - Torment/Beauty

FLAGRANTS D`ELI/DOVES UNDER CHAIRWALK-Screaming Hearts-[split tape]-(Self Released-France+Germany-c60-199?)

Flagrants D`Eli was an Anarcho punk band from Epernon, France formed in 1986.They released lots of stuff, here a discogs page dedicated to them.
Doves Under Chairwalk changed their name to DUC in the early 90s for two reasons: The circumstance that the band sang only German lyrics was one, but the main reason was that they have changed their guitarist. From then on, his influence was gone but the band refused to be the same band. So they did not want to change their name completely but worked on under the shortcut of their previous name: DUC.
Enjoy it.
ps-this rip is been revisited on 28jan 2016-it is much better now

ANDROMEDA COMPLEX - Hypnotic Erotic Syndrome - (Trummer Kassetten-Germany-1995)

Excellent erotik meditations and esoteric body music here from thee Italian projekt Andromeda Complex; who were formed in 1993 by Angelo Bergamini (keyboards and programming) and Celestino Pes (vocals and guitar)!! released on thee German label Trümmer Kassetten which was run by Lutz Pruditsch.. thee release tis packaged in an a5 cover loaded with some surreal/erotik collages and photos..
Vessillifera Mortifera [deadly spearbearer]- begins with melancholy slowed orchestral samples and tis met with drear loungey German femimine vocals, and some sort ov Giallo styled piano and percussion which tis played alternatingly forward and reversed with processing for a sort ov glitchy type ov effect with thee continuing ov thee previously mentioned feminine vocals.. all fades away..
Deep Gardens - rattling, chimes, and somber ambiance are met with a feminine voice guiding us towards an erotik meditatitive overtaking ov thee senses.. "you are magnificent , you are divine, you are ecstasy, and you are sex"..
The Black Mother - dark beatific ambiance tis interspersed with slowed breaths and ecstatic vocalisations as well as nice minimal synthesizer progressions.. tympanies thunder a ritual cadence and masculine vocal chants make their presence amidst climaxing feminine vocalisations!!
La Perception De L´Eternite [the perception of eternity] - thunder and a splashing ov rapids are soon met by a restrained rock beat with thee occasional dripping ov waters and the distant continuous rushing ov streams.. anthemic minimal synthesizer work plays atop thee continued rock beat with thee interspersing ov a few somber French masculine vocal utterances.. thee rushing ov thee aqueous flows continues, and transitions to a trickling over which intermittent static appears before fading away..
Aristockings Queen - "ready for anything?" great restrained esoteric body music tis overlayed with thee monologue ov a dominatrix describing and utilising her devices for thee transmission ov pain/pleasure upon thee body: whips, nipple clamps, teeth, candles, shears.. "I know your fantasies, I know your dreams, I know the darkest ones.."
Women And Masses - more ecstatic elektronik dancefloor revelry ensues amidst repetitious processed gasping/panting.. two more samples are repetitively interspersed: that ov a woman's voice: "do you mind waiting for me?", and some indecipherable word met by thee thunderous voice ov a crowd..
Lady With Opera Gloves - atmospheric synthesizer work tis met with short agonised groans, and very scarce hits ov elektronik harpsichord..
Lady With Grey Stockings - meandering piano work flourishes before being met with a more sustained hammering and chord progression for thee final piece ov thee album which suddenly comes to a cessation with a repetitive Italian feminine vocalisation..

Track listing:
A1 Vessillifera Mortifera
A2 Deep Gardens
A3 The Black Mother
A4 La Perception De L´Eternite
B1 Aristockings Queen
B2 Women And Masses

A magnificent cassette of derenged noisy passages.

DEVIATION-Huy Vam,Abo Totalitarizm Nya Proydze!-(BMA Prod -Belarus-1997)

Deviation is a folk punk band from Belarus,I cannot recall how I got this tape!Everything is written in cyrillic characters so I couldn`t understand anything.
Eventually I asked my friend Al-Maytatu L-Habithu to provide translations of  the cover sleeve.
He did find also additional info in a interview online(also this written in russian) and he kindly translated some part of it for this post.
As far as I know there are few pages about this band yet only in russian so I am very grateful to  Al-Maytatu L-Habithu for providing all those informations,I can only add here a very big "Thank You".
"Huy vam, abo tatalitarizm nya proydze!"  is the title of this album and it means "Fuck you all, or totalitarianism will not pass!"Here you find all those useful info in english.
Belarus was  a poor totalitarian post-soviet country in 90s. Guys with
long hair, earings, strange clothes could find troubles in the streets
(especially in small towns): fights, arrests, bans... 
Those circumstances raised protests among the youth.
Deviation (sometimes deVIAtion) formed in small town Berestovica near
Hrodna in Belarus in August of 1993. Their first concert was in
November '93, in which they played  the song "Militseyskiy terror. Ubey menta"("Police terror. Kill cop!"). For this the band was arrested after their
first concert (the judge gave 10 days in jail to the vocalist, 15 days -
to the bassist and the drummer had to pay a fine). This is  how Deviation was born.After the court on Deviation a lot of rock bands in Hrodna had
problems with authorities. In their interview Stas (vocalist) said
that they were banned in their hometown, and never gave concerts in
Hrodna. But  they became famous in Belarus. And in the end of 90s they went on tour in Poland and Russia.
"Huy vam, abo tatalitarizm nya proydze!" is their second album. In 1997
they gained some popularity. The album was selling all over Belarus, but
with  title cenrosed as "…tatalitarizm nya proydze!" and sometimes
"…nya proydze!"
Their music is dark and aggressive - punk rock and hardcore sometimes
with influences of reggae and folk.They made themselves an image of
extremists. Living in dangerous times and in a dangerous country yet  they
didn’t compromise. The lyrics subjects are in anarcho-punk "no pasaran"
traditions: antisystem, antifascist, anarchism, against police &
authorities. They sings "how bad is Belarus, and it will be worse".
*Bielaruskaja vosien / Belarusian autumn was dedicated to Krasnyye Zvezdy*
Who is Krasnyye Zvezdy?
Krasnyye Zvezdy is popular belorussian pro-system (hypocritical) punk
rock band. "Deviation is like Krasnyye Zvezdy but conversely". Critics
often compared this two bands. Deviation didn’t like this comparison, and
they dedicated  the track "Bielaruskaja vosien" to Krasnyye Zvezdy.

Band is:
Stas - vocal
Vital (Kurkul*) – guitar
Andrey – bass
Dima (Balamut*) – drums

* "Kurkul' means "Meanie"
* "Balamut" means "Troublemaker"

Band is (as in booklet):
Stas - roar, moan, scream
Vital (Kurkul*) – electric and acoustic guitar, from time to time screaming
Andrey – bass, was silent
Dima (Balamut) – drums, from time to time moaning

All music and lyrics by Deviation (except track 5). Was used
belarusian folk song "Oh, rechennka, rechenka ..." ("Oh, river,
river…"), noises and samples from USSR documental film "Obyknovennyy
fashizm" ("Ordinary Fascism"1965).
Sometimes the name of the band is "deVIAtion" (with three capital letters). Its a reference to soviet past. What is VIA music you read on wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIA_music
