In Search Of Death * III (cd 2015)

There is not a whole lot of information on this disc. No track titles for one. There is this though:
> Recorded in 2003 by – Xavier H
> Mastered in 2015 by Peter Andersson
According to Discogs that would be Peter ‘Raison d’Être’ Andersson and not Peter ‘Lina Baby Doll’ Andersson, but who is Xavier H.? Judging the cover of the cd which is the same as the logo of the label Death Continues Records, my guess is that H. is the man behind the label. So what about the “III”? If Discogs is correct, this is In Search Of Death’s (and Xavier H.’s for that matter) first and only release. Perhaps the third attempt?

I bought this cd as being “death industrial”, but that is not a very good description in my opinion. The cd is not harsch enough to be “death industrial”, but it is too hard to be “dark ambient”. Most tracks hold somewhere in between. “Dark and noisy ambient” that would be a description. There are also passages where the sound gets pretty noisy though, so when you like dark ambient, but not noise, think twice before buying this album.

The music on this cd is alright. It is moody and dirty, but not terribly interesting. It is not boring either, so it will work out just fine as background music.

It appears that there are only 200 copies of this cd by the way.

Femeheim ‎* Grenzniederkunft (cd 2013)

Death Industrial from a Belgian label that I do not think I heard of. Only now I see that I bought the debut of this project while there is a more recent release available through the same label. It is not like Femeheim sounds like Brighter Death Now. The music is dark and noisy, but not all tracks have the massive low frequencies of projects like Ex.Order. There are some pretty good tracks to be found here though. The rest is more like very dark ambient with a noisy edge which works as background music.

Not bad and this does make me curious about the second album.

Nekrofellatio ‎* Pesadilla En Una Noche Sin Estrellas (cd 2014)

I thought to have ordered a death industrial cd, but this starless night nightmare is more a collection of weird and noisy soundscapes, too unstructured for my liking. The music is somewhat dark here and there, but I think that this release is more for people who like noisy soundscapes than people who are looking for noise or death industrial. I guess the label expects an audience, so I am sure it must be there. Quite a sad project name too by the way.

Not my thing. No worries, that can happen.
