Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

At first, I thought this was a split cassette release, but after a while, I realized it is a live collaboration between Abattoir and Satori. This material is not their first collaboration, and previously they released the album version of Megaloschemos and another collaborative cassette named Aether. Abattoir is a side project of Lorenzo Abattoir,… Read More Abattoir & Satori – Megaloschemos Live CS (Unsigned)

Here’s another interesting experimental release, which is also one of the latest published by the Unsigned, an avant-garde music label from Budapest, Hungary.

Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

Shanyio came a long way from experimental artist to prolific avant-garde composer/multiinstrumentalist. Perhaps this Romanian artist seem like a prolific musician who releases his recordings on a nearly monthly basis, but Shanyio calculates and simultaneously works on several projects at the time. Therefore, it may appear like his albums and collaborations are popping from every… Read More Shanyio – Of The Waters / A Apelor CS

Fixateur Externe – A Fekete Gong CS (Unsigned / Blastbeat Worship)

Here’s another interesting experimental recording, recently released by Unsigned and Blastbeat Worship. Like many other avant-garde outlets, Fixateur Externe are strangers to these pages, and I previously had a chance to review a couple of their releases. Fixateur Externe is more of a collective than a project, mainly because it gathers various Hungarian experimental artists… Read More Fixateur Externe – A Fekete Gong CS (Unsigned / Blastbeat Worship)

Qoniak is an experimental electronic duo comprised of Vincent Membrez and Lionel Friedli. The group explores so many musical spheres that it’s so difficult to grasp their music in just one listening. This duo bases its sound on vintage analog machines, profoundly detailed synthesis, and a comprehensive collection of complex rhythmical maneuvers. The highly intelligent… Read More Qoniak – Mutatio CD (Hummus Records)

Royal Hungarian Noisemakers – Le Roi Est Mort CD (Unsigned Records)

Royal Hungarian Noisemakers emanate from Budapest, Hungary. I was fortunate enough to share the stage with this live act, but also to experience their live performances a couple of times. Whoever experienced their live performance, left with the impression there’s a lot more going on, mainly because of the presence of both analog and digital… Read More Royal Hungarian Noisemakers – Le Roi Est Mort CD (Unsigned Records)
