Toroidh & Arditi * United In Blood (cd 2004 neuropa)

Hm, did I know about this split album? I suppose I did, but Toroidh is not my favourite project and I never really heard Arditi, Puissance is just alright, but not really my thing. The militant ambient sound of Toroidh proves to go well with the more orchestral bombastic tones of Arditi though and this album is actually not too bad at all. No masterpiece, but a nice thing to run into.

Toroidh * Those Who Do Not Remember The Past Are Condemned To Repeat It (cd 2001 205 recordings)

Hm, this MZ.412/Folkstorm sideproject releases so many very limited things that it is impossible to keep up. I also ordered an lp which is no longer available and also this cd was said to be no longer available, but I got a copy afterall. In the meantime there is another lp available. I wonder why the guys release so much material, because it is really not that good. Maybe it would be a better idea to work on the material for some more time before releasing something.
“Those Who Do Not Remember…” seems to be older material now on cd. This disc contains ambient/industrial which reminds a lot of the first cd of Der Blutharsch. There are some militant samples and drumming, but the music remains tranquil and quite monotous. It all sounds quite nice, but not really good and definately not original (too obvious samples too!!). <29/6/02><3>

Toroidh * Europe Is Dead / Dr Weiskopf Ist Tod (7″ 2001 christcrusher)

How strange these things can go. I ordered the Toroidh lp and cd almost three months ago and I am still waiting. This 7″ I ordered two weeks ago from another mailorder… Well, I guess this 7″ was the Toroidh debut, so maybe it is better this way.
This picture 7″ was released by a black metal label, what probably makes your toes crawl. Having this notification followed by the remarks that the first track is an industrial track with an acoustic guitar and the second track a dark industrial/ambient track with a rather militant sound, probably won’t make things better. Anyway, it sounds alright, so I wonder what the full-lengths will sound like. You will read it here as soon as I get them. <13/4/02><2>
