Years On Earth

http://mutant-sounds.blogspot.com/2008/11/years-on-earth-site-tape1982uk.html



Lots of low budget 70s sci-horror synth sounds warbling and crashing into each other, like Dario Argento directing Alien. Rattling vocals echo beneath those sewers of instruments and an uncomfortable aura of something slowly creeping up behind you in the middle of the night. Album gleaned from the lovely guys at Mutant Sounds, as the link above will suggest. Good luck finding any other info about the band.

Wormsblood




Filthy, unproduced black metal brimming with howls (both human and inhuman), esoteric ambience and the unmistakeable stench of something very evil beneath the surface.

Amaka Hahina


Droning organ and layers of vocals that rasp and ramble. You'll feel like walking through a demon-haunted forest, alone and about ready to give in to encroaching madness. The complete mysterious aesthetic - with titles that don't make sense and lyrics that you can't make out - completes the music's horror.

Orzelda



This is the sound of creepy children's toys and cobwebbed attics. Wavering between noisy horror ambience and lo-fi rock, this Twilight Sad side project is brimming with weirdness and late nate uneasiness.

Both albums available from website so go there and get them!

Yoga



Haunted and eerie drones crawl out of the speakers. Repetitive ghostly ambience masking impish gibberish and mournful wails. They claim to blend new age and black metal aesthetics - music for a New Black Age. This is what the blog was made for.

Below is the Yoga half of their split with Ghäst, and is the same as their demo tape.

Black Goatskin Robe

http://www.last.fm/music/Black+Goatskin+Robe



Layers of warped, twisted, groaning vocal samples made to sound like a ritual of zombies and their demon masters.

Shaye Saint John


Absurd to the point of creepy, this is music from the uncanny valley. Horrid visuals are achieved through total lofi effects, and the obsessive repetition found in the songs make so little sense it feels like my head is slowly...pull...ing...apar...t...

And also be sure to watch the short movie featuring Shaye St John, Wire Therapy.

Lucifer




Famed early electronics with an hellish sneer. The music swirls between eerie ambience, ritualistic beats and drama that wants to charm the serpent-devil itself. Total 70s b-movie chic.

Creepy electronics soundtrack poems from Charles Baudelaire's "Les Fleurs de Mal". The voice limps through reverb and distortion as the music grows and dissipates. Some songs are scary in their sparseness, others bewitching, whilst some (e.g. "Spleen") are simply haunted with evil.

Saaamaaa




Inside the belly of a demon, trapped and incapable of bursting through. It comprises distorted organs and monsterous vocal samples. A massively deep sound is completely understated by its swamp-like production. Not for audiophiles or easy listening.

White Noise






Early experimental electronics. Endless samples and weird primitive effects turn these songs into a soundtrack for going insane. Vocals don't appear much. Shame the rest of this album ("An Electric Storm") isn't as good as these two tracks.

As an aside... #1

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciSkHZpNkmA&NR=1





Not music but an effectively creepy lofi video. Bikers capturing an unidentifiable figure in the woods, standing in a weird position. It moves strangely as well. No sound either, which somehow somehow works for it.

Wraipe Aurora






Dark, dark droning ambient. This is the soundtrack for snuff films and fucked up movies about being raped. By zombies. Plodding scoundscapes are interupted by fuzzy guitars and groooooaaaning howls. The music is excerpts from hours-long sessions of being locked in cellars. It's languid terror is more akin to nightmares than movies.

Mount Vernon Arts Lab

www.myspace.com/mountvernonartslab





Despite good production this album is still a slab of weird horror-inflected electronics. This is more like a low-budget Lynch movie. Lots of visceral samples and sounds which fuck with your head. You'll want to turn it off but be totally incapable of doing so.
