Two More Tapes from Worthless

Worthless Recordings keeps up their steady pace of eclectic noise with two more releases.

The first is a split between the increasingly prolific Marax and Coma Centauri. Titled Coerced To Pull The Trigger, this C-60 is limited to just 50 copies.

Here at least is a bit of Marax to sample:

The second tape is The Earth Dies Screaming from the Serbian act, Raven.

Beautifully executed industrial ambient noise from Serbia. Raven supports anarchism, animal liberation, antifascism, vegetarianism/veganism, DIY ethics & culture, environmentalism, pacifism & antiauthoritarianism.

Vivisection is scientific fraud.

Tape is also limited to 50

To order both and hear pieces of both tapes, head here.

Earth: Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II Details!

Thank you thank you thank you... some news on the new Earth. Due out in February of next year, so save those pennies now.

The second half of Seattle drone icons Earth's Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light is being prepared for release on Southern Lord Records in North America this February 14th on CD, LP and digital download formats.

Recorded in the same two week session as 2011's lauded Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I by Stuart Hallerman at Avast and mastered by Mell Detmer, Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II carries on in the freely and folkloric vein of the last release and invokes even more improvisational and unrestrained energy than its predecessor.

Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II is striking in many ways, not least in the wildly improvised nature of this particular recording. The songs "Sigil Of Brass" and "The Corascene Dog" perfectly emphasize how the interplay between the foursome has evolved even further since the first installment. Meanwhile, the track "His Teeth Did Brightly Shine" veers further into an entirely other direction, recalling sounds of the great British Acid Folk generation. This new material brings forth some highly original and deeply mesmerizing tones throughout, at times more hopeful and less dark and death oriented than previous work. Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II is ultimately a completely unanticipated direction for Earth, and a very welcome one at that.

The line-up again consists of Adrienne Davies on drums and percussion (on this release there is more percussion of all sorts), Lori Goldston (Nirvana, David Byrne, Black Cat Orchestra, Laura Veirs) returns on cello, and Karl Blau (K Records, Laura Veirs, Microphones) plays bass. This also marks the first time the band on the record has toured outside of the US West Coast in preparation for the album. As with the first part, it again has truly amazing artwork by Stacey Rozich. View the cover art at this location.

Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II track listing:

1. Sigil of Brass
2. His Teeth Did Brightly Shine
3. Multiplicity of Doors
4. The Corascene Dog
5. The Rakehell

New From Land Of Decay: Cedars Of Lebanon

Listen here:

Cedars of Lebanon "At The Grasp of Death We May Sing" by Landofdecay

We’ve been fans of Cedars of Lebanon for years, but unfortunately this project has been obscured by the popularity of the project leader’s other musical projects (Minsk, and U.S. Christmas). The group’s “Archive” 2xCDr was released by the artist in limited quantities a few years ago and never received its fair share or praise or distribution. The material on “Archive II” is even stronger and more haunting than the artist’s initial release. “Archive II” is the first Land of Decay release that was recorded exclusively in the drainage tunnels and abandoned missile silos around Peoria, IL.

Cedars of Lebanon
Title: Archive II
Format: Cassette
Catalog Number: LOD 018
Edition Size: 125 Copies
Members: A Couri, Jamie Drier, Mikey Ricketts
Track Titles:
Side A
1) Lament (4:35)
2) Place Me Underneath My Mother’s Breast Underneath the Cedar Tree (8:25)
3) I Was There At The Moment of the Beginning (9:31)
4) Nerves (14:22)
Side B
1) At The Grasp Of Death We May Sing (7:37)
2) Opium Tone 2 (24:25)
