HEX MINORA - Ai - (Metamorphosi-UK-1995)

Another great tape by this astonishing noise artist Hex Minora-maybe her best work. I have already posted her self titled tape released in 1992 and the split tape with Skinflick Productions.
Here the review by my friend Crepusculum from his blog Vita Ignes Corpus Lignum:
 Readers ov this blog should already be semi-familiar with what info we have on thee Ipswich, Suffolk UK female occult-industrial artist: Carol-Ann who is behind this cassette which was released on the Metamorphosi label in 95. It features works recorded from 92-94, and is some ov her harshest, and at times {The Gentle Birth Of Sadism and the intro to PMT) some ov thee most beautifull ov her output with both ov the tracks featuring beatific piano progressions juxtaposed with harsh visceral occult power electronics.. It appears that there were several different covers made for this release each featuring different nude color printed photos ov various female models..
 In this video there is, in fact, another cover for this cassette...
for all the lovers of certain sexual occult noise industrial...!
A big Thanx to Crepusculum for this rip and his review.
Enjoy it.

Bikarbonato N1-(Fanzine-Spain-198?)

Bikarbonato was a fanzine made by the Bikarbonato Collective in La Cuadra (Basque Country-Spain).
It was mainly focused on poetries and short stories with a few drawings. This is the issue number 1 and there is no date listed, I guess came out sometimes in the 80s. 
Only in the Spanish language.

v.a.-SCHIZOPHOBIA-(Interrupt Product-c90-Holland-1989)

Another obscure compilation covering some acts from the international industrial scene of the 80s. It does contain quite a few very psychotic tracks by some kind of deranged yet genial artists. 
Interrupt Product was a small tape label from Holland active during the 80s, it has a sublabel called Non-Interrupt, a sub-label that seems to be still active nowadays.
In this astonishing sampler, we`ll find many good tracks raging from the noise, the old school industrial, the electro, the esoteric electronics and a few rather difficult melodies (or anti-melodies) to absorb.
Enjoy it.

ABSURD N5- An Issue Of Absolute Nothingness-(Fanzine-Greece-2001)

Absurd was an all-English written fanzine from Athens (Greece) active in the early years of last decade. It does cover many aspects of the industrial music scene in Greece and beyond.

For industrial music scene here I mean almost all its subgenres and also difficult music in a broad sense.

The concept itself for editing and writing this issue  is quite genial and I prefer to leave the explanation to the editor :
This issue number 5 evolves into info about quite a few obscure, or less obscure music labels, musicians, gig organizers and music reviews.
In some ways, it looks more like a very useful bulletin with addresses and various info. 

Eventually, I feel this is a very great tool to research the lively international electronic deviated music scene of the early 2000s and at the same time a very nice example of the creative and passionate underground press. 
Thanx to Jason of 1000+1 TiLt Recordings for sending me this astonishing zine a long time ago.
Enjoy it.
