Svarte Greiner -knive

Hailing from the damp, blood-caked shores of Norway we always had an inkling that Erik K. Skodvin (better known as one half of Deaf Center) would be beckoned toward the dark side. As we all know, Norway is the most evil country in the north of Europe; they invented black metal and have a liberal government that actually works – there’s got to be something wrong. It was only a matter of time then before Skodvin felt the call of his pagan ancestors and smelted ‘Knive’, a dusty anthology of surreal and doom laden paeans to the ancient ones.

The troubled artist was set on his ashen path after a fated trip into the winding forests of rural Norway, during which he was shaken into exploring the darkest caverns of his mind to explain the bizarre forces that were making themselves known to him. He was spoken to by spiritual entities only rarely seen and set on a path of experimentation with the new influences flooding into his brain. Instead of revelling in pain and suffering though, Skodvin looked to the skewed world of the Dadaists feeling that their bug-eyed outlook would meld perfectly with his odes to the inky lords of Norwegian caliginosity, and the result is nine tracks of menacing abstraction and surreal, nauseating horror.

The album opens with ‘The Boat was my Friend’; a distorted guitar drone rings out into the atmosphere as crows bellow overhead and before you realise it a cello fades up in accompaniment and a shadowy female voice utters strange wordless chants. This is our serenade into a monochrome world where every floorboard creaks, where the sun never rises and the moon is forever full, willing evil to seep from the minds of the terminally unhinged. Before long we hear the sound of a saw ripping through that which we would prefer not to imagine on ‘Easy on the Bones’ and a gruesome character is revealed – the shocking visual aspect which so many attempt and fail dismally. When we finally reach the end, the appropriately titled ‘Final Sleep’, we are treated to the album’s most memorable moment – an operatic vocal which soars atop Angelo Badalamenti influenced organs, seeping into your veins as it winds the album to a close.

Skodvin has constructed a delirious collection of disorientating surrealism, an audio movie, re-enacting the most sadistic and most bone-chilling moments from your preferred tales of horror. Make sure all sharp implements are locked away and listen at your peril!

Sjelløs - Gestalt der Nacht video

Nasienie-Machine Howl

Dweller on the Threshold - Self-Titled

Track list:

1. Will O' the Wasp (lasting five minutes and 41 seconds of the release). This is a melancholic and depressive introduction to the calamity that is ahead. This marks the hope for a peaceful passing, and at the same time reminiscing on all of the beautiful moments (both joyous and saddening) that one can experience in life. Moreover, in the end, it all is but a hope...

2. I - The Fleet of Shades (lasting nine minutes and 34 seconds of the release). A majestic and yet sinister revelation, it can be depressive. This marks having the sight of "the end" right before you, not the action but rather the very possible concept...I will not be too specific. In this stage, one would encounter a worldwide phenomenon of pernicious intent, while at the same time experiencing the feeling of wisdom in a downfallen style, fading out to the fading in of...

3. II - Eradication (lasting 12 minutes of the release). This is a hateful and vengeful smirk upon the human filth slowly becoming extinct. This marks the joy and dry humor one might get from and while watching the extinction of one's own vile species. Again, I will not tell anything too specific. "The end".

4. III - Harvest (lasting 12 minutes and 42 seconds of the release). Complete despondency, nothing but bleak visions of the barren future to come, and my own personal celebration to it. This marks "losing it", someone is howling insanely with a mind broken after witnessing and experiencing things no one person should have to, coming in all at once. Who or what is harvested? Well, that is the brokenness of it.

5. Erased (Closure) (lasting the last 12 minutes and 26 seconds of the release). The ending of this journey...or rather, just fading out of it. That barren place is in front of one, nothing left to howl about, nothing left to do travel aimlessly and rot away to the music of emptiness. What happened and why was the transition so quick? Who am I talking to? Do you hear a hint of hope in the winds of the deadlands around? Well, one might be a bit delusional after such an ordeal.

Raped and Flayed By Ancient Winds - Yithian Prophecy video

Blackhouse-Golden Ghost 1990 video


Cezary Gapik (also know as CEZAR) was born in Czestochowa, Poland in 1963. He started his musical activity in 1980 as an animator of punk rock bands. Soon enough he discovered new sounds which were brought by the punk rock rebellion. Cabaret Voltaire, Public Image Ltd. or other ânew waveâ bands had an enormous influence on the perception of music by Cezar. Plunging into the fundaments of musical avant-garde (Karlheinz Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Luc Ferrari, La Monte Young), the appearance of new creative possibilities (computer) together with the works of artists like Mick Harris (Lull, Scorn), Illusion of Safety, etc. had definitively shaped the musical direction towards which Cezary Gapik follows. His musical creation is based on drones and micro-tonal sound planes interlaced with abstract "images" (field recordings) or computer-processed synthetic sounds (glitch). In his compositions one has the opportunity to feel the fascination of the artists like Luc Ferrari, Philip Glass, La Monte Young and the masters of isolationist ambient - Lull, Thomas Köner, Nocturnal Emissions. After individual experiments with dark electronic vibes in the mid-nineties Cezar met in 1998 Bartlomiej Kuzniak (bass, sax & electronics musician), with whom he created QG/GQ project. A little trace of this cooperation is a track âZ1â on "C9H13O3N" album released in limited, 200-pieces edition under the independent label Polycephal. The year 2000 brought another collaboration of Cezar with musicians like B. Kuzniak (mentioned above), Joe Giardullo (sax - New York's jazz avant-garde), Dawid Kosiarkiewicz (sax, prepared piano), Zbigniew Szmatloch (prepared guitar & electronics) and Andrzej Zaleski (drums) which evolved into a concert tour across Poland. The memorable concerts were performed in Warsaw (Centre of Modern Art in Ujazdowski Castle) and in Szczecin (Kana Theatre). Part of the Warsaw concert has been included on the Dokument. Program Strefa's compilation released in 2005. Cezar is very often invited for co-operation by grind-core and death-metal bands like YATTERING, for whom he composed drones which were used to fill the gaps between tracks on the album "Murder Concept" (2000). He can be called a "fulltime" intro & outro specialist for the band INFERNAL WAR which with his contribution released albums "Terrorfront" (2005) and "Redesecration" (2007). Cezar has also an episode with computer gaming IT Industry on his account where he composed an ambient soundtrack for the PC game "Painkiller" released in 2004 and acclaimed by critics. Up to year 2006 Cezar has composed in his own self-created studio a large volume of sound material which he regularly released on CD-R discs in limited editions for his friends and fans. Originating from this collection - the album "Artefakt" (2000) has been highly valued and recognized by critics and finally re-released by a netlabel Torrentech in 2009. The years 2007 and 2008 can be considered as a pause in Cezar's creation while the year 2009 brought an increased artistâs activity. After the re-release of "Artefakt" and release by a Russian netlabel DNA Production of the retrospective compilation âThe Collection 1998-2006â Cezar brought to life his own label - C.G. Drone Records. The first âfruitâ of this project was a mini CDr (3) "The Limestone EP". At the same time Cezar tightened his cooperation with DNA Production which resulted in his new EP to be also available for download (mp3 & FLAC format) from this netlabel's catalogue. The year 2009 has also brought a new cooperative project - this time with German ambient musician Siegmar Fricke which concluded with an album CEZAR | PHARMAKUSTIK â âEnukleacjaâ. The album could be described as a cool, isolationist and dark-ambient creation. The year 2010 opened with the release in January by French netlabels Le Colibri Necrophile, Earsheltering and M.i.r.e.n.a. of the compilation "Nektar 2017 Volume 2". Cezar contributed to this production with the track "0421". In February C.G. Drone Records released "Zaduszki (All Saints Day) EP" which is a re-edition of the tracks previously composed in the years 1998 and 1999 under the same title.

What concerns the future - "there is still a lot of unrest in my soul which I desire to transform into sound" - says Cezary Gapik.

Simeon Dotkov - Before Dusk [2009]

This is the conceptual dark ambient/soundtrack album ‘Before Dusk’. In sixteen tracks we are slowly introduced to the world of Jenny. Creepy monologues, dusty pianos, slowly evolving soundscapes and satanic chants draw the fragile boundaries of the mental asylum she’s trapped in. We offer you over an hour long walk with her in the endless nightmare, a walk you’ll surely be taking over and over again, once you dare to drown yourself in this obsessive ambience of desolation, depression and tension. Now we are offering you the digital version of the album, soon a limited edition cd-r release will be published!
