Grist - Another Year

AuGrist is here and it is time for another Gristian Rite from thee Australian Ritual projekt of A Demon Sheen

 

From thee Artist:

“These annual offerings are not just albums, but, in a very real sense, they are what keeps GRIST alive – they have become  once-a-year celebrations that not only honour the project but have actually turned the project from a band-as-ritual to a ritual-as-band. These albums are no longer just a compilation of rituals released as music, but music performed as annual ritual, cyclical events to be re-performed every year. ‘Another Year’ is dedicated to P23.”

 

Available here

 

 

A Most Accursed - Synaesthesia Dialogue

We are very happy to present thee fourth release from A Most Accursed, thee side-projekt of our good friends at Druhá Smrt.

From thee Artist:
“The album was intentionally created as an attempt to synesthetically express the possibilities of perception that we have experienced and are experiencing together, like a painter, musician and poet. The eclectic sound of AMA therefore finds a way even deeper and more concisely in the analog realm; no synths, just piano, mellotron, ostinato strings, stoner guitars and vintage drums. We didn't think about form and structure, rather a spontaneous minimalistic, primitive stoner approach.”

'Dark Ambient Vol. 18' Review

An exhaustive review from Psymon at 1208 North Fuller Ave Apt 1 for thee recent Dark Ambient Vol. 18 kompilation!

"...I can honestly say that there were no duds on this one...I urge you to pick this up, and give it a thorough listen – it deserves a careful listen and a lot of appreciation."

'A Most Accursed - Ghosts' Review

A new review for thee latest review from A Most Accursed has been published on thee 1208 North Fuller Ave Apt 1 website!

"It is an uplifting and sobering experience, a reminder both of joy and grief, a celebratory parade and a funeral cortege...This is a scintillating gem that shines darkly in both the light and the dark."

'Deus Ex Charta - Earth Diver' Review

Thee first review is in for thee new Deus ex Charta release, entitled 'Earth Diver', kourtesy of 1208 North Fuller Ave Apt 1!

"Sombre Soniks once again releases a thought-provoking set of music, one that perhaps is tinged with a certain urgency that impels action. I am continually astonished at P23’s ability to entice artists to produce such consistently high-quality work."

'A Most Accursed - Ghosts'

This month we are pleased to announce thee third release from A Most Accursed, a side Projekt from thee Czech Ritual akt Druhá Smrt!

From thee Artist:
"In the zeitgeist of Kali Yuga there are places that are being destroyed, although their power brings growth and prosperity to all living around. This album is dedicated to places that remain only in the soul of the world. The same thing awaits man. Between remembrance and premonition is a gateway through which we can slip into the world of spirits, a world on the horizon of desire, passion for the impossible. In this sense, waiting in Muzik is the invocation of the future reality, which is the transgression of the eternal Now, is the most profound act. A Most Accursed are those who have become ghosts in contemporary bodies, because they found themselves out of time."

https://sombresoniks.bandcamp.com/album/ghosts

'Deus Ex Charta - Earth Diver'

Sombre Soniks presents our first release from Deus Ex Charta, a side projekt of Serbian based Timur Iskandarov, thee Artist behind Tamerlan.

From thee Artist:
"Earth Diver contains three chapters, starting from rejection of the ‘world’ forced upon us (Our Kind Of Hell), destruction of our existence and role in it (Thanatorgasm) and the visions of creation of the new existence, in the world where our divine nature thrives (Earth Diver).

Instrumentation for this release included: sheets of paper, squealing origami figurines, guitars, planet Earth.”

'Grist - AuGrist' Review

A very nice review for thee latest Grist release, 'AuGrist', from Cryptic Resonances webpage!

"...AuGrist will be a definite feast for your ears. A true lesson in abandoning a sense of over arching guidelines with one’s work, this album nothing less than a stimulating, hallucinatory journey through landscapes of a dense, dreamlike nature."

'Misantronics - Initium' Review

A wonderful first review for 'Initum' by Misantronics from thee exquisitely eloquent Psymon at 1208 North Fuller Ave Apt 1!

"Initium is a wide-ranging album, a broad canvas depicting and portraying deeply-rooted dispositions and atmospheres, using a whole spectrum of colours and hues to capture the minutiae...The mostly ‘impressionist’ approach to sound painting here conjured up responses that I connected with only too readily – a sign that Misantronics must be doing something right."

Grist - AuGrist

AuGrist is here again and we celebrate with our seventh release from thee mighty Blak Ambient Drone Artist hailing from Australia...Grist!

From thee Artist: "This release is an account of 'not doing'.These three pieces are pure exploration, goalless, intentless, mindless, egoless, consciousless. They are pure ‘play’. An Augurist takes the happenstances of the present and constructs the future with them. On the album Augurist, Grist took the happenstances of his sound-present and constructed his own sound-future – which you can hear right now."

https://sombresoniks.bandcamp.com/album/augrist

Misantronics - Initium

This month sees our sixth release from Misantronics, thee ever-evolving Dark Elektronika Projekt from Belgium!

From thee Artist: "In June, a planned EDM session suddenly tumbled into darkness. The gloomy, lingering and somewhat gritty version of Misantronics crawled out of his hibernation. The dance beats disappeared and made way for impending drones. 'Ortus' was born, the start of a new Misantronics album. From the moment on, the focus was on one question: 'How far can I stretch the Misantronics sound before it's no longer Misantronics?'. The answer is: 'quite far, apparently'."

https://sombresoniks.bandcamp.com/album/initium

'Grist - AuGrist' Review

Thanks once again to Psymon for a thorough and deskriptive review, this time for thee new offering from Grist, 'AuGrist'!

"One thing I’ve learned is that P23’s Sombre Soniks label has a habit of releasing offbeat and intriguing music...Judging by the results issued here, Grist understands what his music wants to tell him, and he trusts it enough to let it speak through its own voice. For me, this is another winner from Sombre Soniks."

Druhá Smrt - Incarnatium

 

This month I am very happy to announce thee eighth release from Druhá Smrt, thee Ritual projekt hailing from thee Czech mountains!

From thee Artist: “This album begins where ‘Occurentium’ ends, but not in a linear vein. It's a part of the same temporally topological loop and, in this sense, it's also an audio reification of our 'Weltanschauung', our manifesto of Druhá Smrt; an intentional Ritual creation transmitted from the magickal current. What can be seen as a mystical point of view of incarnation is in a fact also a phenomenological-existential perspective of in/carnality.”
