Silence & Strength * Opus Paracelsum (cd 2006 the eastern front)

This is the second album of S&S on the Israelian label The Eastern Front. Whereas the first was dedicated to Cagliostro, the new album is dedicated to Paracelsus. The album contains strange soundscapes, here and there with a dark ambient style, at other times more silly of sound. Most of the music is slow stretched soundscapes though. The album has almost no neofolkish parts this time and however it sure has its moments, I prefer the debut of Silence & Strength.

Wave Gotik Treffen 2016

The first time I went to the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, was the disastrous 9th edition in the year 2000. It took a couple of years before I went again. Recent years I went annually. The WGT is so big and varried that there is a lot to see even for me. I have […]

Still an addict

Not much music reviews recently, but I am as much a music addict as I used to be. It is just that I do not run into new things that I really like very often. I listen to a variety of music styles nowadays. My ‘usual’ or ‘old’ scenes do not present all that many […]

7″

I like vinyl, but I seldom buy it since I seldom play it. 7″s I do have quite a few though. This is partly because before the internet 7″s were a cheap way to get to know new music and of course 7″s are sometimes fairly exclusive releases. Here come a few covers. The scans […]

A little peek into early industrial

Recently I have been reading some books about the history of industrial music. “Assimilate“, “Industrial Evolution” and “England’s Hidden Reverse” (not yet finished when I write this). “Assimilate” starts with the early scenes of Northern England, Berlin and San Francisco, but soon speaks only of relatively popular bands and projects. “Industrial Evolution” focusses on the […]

My early days in dark music

It is funny how memory works. When somebody would ask me about my musical background I would start with something like the following. My father has a fairly big vinyl collection and a varried taste, so from an early age I encountered all kinds of different music. As a youngster I went to popfestivals and […]
