01. Saåad - The Charnel Ground
02. Insiden - 24 XI 12 11H03 - 11H28 AM Download | Mirror
The Saåad’s side is inspired by the tibetan sky burial ceremony, questioning our relation to the body and the impermanence of life. Symbolized by the death of ego and attachment, “The Charnel Ground” is certainly the most lightning work of the Toulouse-based duo. Based on analog synthesizers, the 3 movements (MI – Atmayajna MII – Body-Breakers MIII – I See The Callus On Her Soul) are dominated by ethereal melodies and warm tones, revealing a new side of the Saåad’s music, outside their usual darkness.
Insiden are four member act bringing together Guillaume Mikolajczyk, Romain De Ferron, Amédée De Murcia (aka Somaticae) and Hugo Saugier. Sharing with Saåad an inclination toward in situ improvisations, ’24 XII 12 11H03 – 11H28 AM’ is their first output ever recorded. Based on noise generator, synthethisers, electric cello and vocals, their 3 movements illustrate a colorful trip with nocturnal flavors, where runs slowly an introspective piece which outspread from a peaceful intro to a eerie percusive mid-part to finish in a out-of-time mood.

Melbourne based A Dead Forest Index are brothers Adam & Sam Sherry, forming a minimalist two piece. Drawing on elements centred around rhythmic pulls and washes of vocals, the guitar & percussion clatters in and around measured structures, that can end abruptly, or drift off into tapping decrescendos where the harmony does find a resolution.
Antique brings to life a sound that is strikingly original and sincere. This music recalls and is homage to a by-gone era. Lyrically engulfing forms are highlighted by repetition, or isolated acapella moments, that mark this collection as a unique and important first release.
A fresh new sound which should please fans of a mixture of Scott Walker, Chelsea Wolfe, Einstürzende Neubauten, Bela Bartok or Dead Can Dance.

OSCL Records are offering all Heirs discography until the end of the month as pay what you want.
Hailed as one of the best post-metal albums of 2009, Heirs’s debut, Alchera, established the band amongst Australia’s foremost instrumental acts. Released by German label Denovali Records, the album contained distant echoes of industrial metal deviants Godflesh, the misanthropic catharsis of early Swans and the gloomy noise rock of Slint, but these influences are something they have been steadily outgrowing. The album’s accompanying tour saw the band play 69 shows across Europe, UK and Japan, cementing their reputation for delivering an engulfing and all-consuming live experience. On stage, the band maintained a relentless, ear-splitting offensive, defying audience expectations by refusing to offer an immediate sense of resolution.
2010 saw the release of Heirs second album, Fowl, displaying a shift towards a broader sonic palette, taking further influence from industrial, darkwave and gothic rock. Incorporating a pugilistic rhythmic foundation with coarse, threatening guitar textures and a stronger electronic presence, Fowl marked a great leap forward for Heirs, taking them beyond genres into a realm that is almost hermetic in its vision. The album also featured the bands first collaborations with multi instrumentalist and world renowned Theremin maestro, Miles Brown. Receiving much praise from critics and fans alike, Heirs returned to Europe to promote the album, performing Denovali Swingfest in Germany, Bracara Extreme Festival in Portugal, as well as headline shows across France, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and Germany. An Australian tour with post-rock heavyweights Laura followed in March 2011, which saw the band courting a confronting visual presence to compliment the weight of their sound.
In September 2011, Heirs will release the first single from their forthcoming third album in the form of a 10″/CD titled “Hunter”, again on Denovali Records. The material sees Heirs strengthening their melodic resolve, and while equally intense, inhabits a less oppressive atmosphere, with the band citing Cocteau Twins & Sisters of Mercy as being influential to their process. It also sees the band taking their visual explorations to new heights, with artwork and video production taking even greater significance, where light, colour and sound are distorted in to a monochrome, hyper-real coition.
To celebrate the release Alcest & Heirs are touring Australia in October 2011 presented by Exotic Corpse and Reckoning Entertainment. The tour features visuals and installations by Heirs’ guitarist and visual artist Brent Stegeman.

Eric Quach (destroyalldreamers, thisquietarmy) from Montreal QC, Ryan Ferguson (Electroluminescent, Sianspheric) from Hamilton ON, Pascal Asselin (Millimetrik, Le Chat Blanc Orchestra, Below The Sea) from Quebec City QC have often crossed paths during their musical careers with their various projects --- the first time in 2005. Since then, they've become close friends and have played together all over Quebec, Ontario & even in Europe.
It was only a matter of time before a collaboration was to happen. And so it did, on July 26th, 2009 - live at Sam Murdock's house in Quebec City where he runs the P572 label and occasionally host house shows. This project, dubbed Parallel Lines, in reference to their numerous musical endeavors, is the result of this musical collaboration between 3 great friends.
38:22, a split over 5 parts; or "movements", this live collaboration between 3 artists at the forefront of underground experimental music in Canada is quite an epic. Sprawling layers of guitars and synths create a huge wall of psyched out shoegaze over the top of rhythmic and hypnotic drumming. What you'll hear is something you would not hear from any of the artists individually; it's something new and exciting. The term "krautgaze" has been used and it's a pretty accurate description.
The second recording from Parallel Lines was captured live on video by Wearepostrock at Divan Orange in Montreal, part of the Under The Snow Festival on March 11th 2011, opening for Esses & Sianspheric.
Completely improvised and totally unrehearsed, tri-city trio /// Pascal Asselin on drums + Ryan Ferguson on synth + Eric Quach on guitar /// gets together once again and put themselves in danger on stage for some thrilling moments. Whatever happens happens: downtempo ambient, psyched-out shoegaze, tension, buildups & explosions.
Note: Another version of the audio co-exists from an accidental occurrence: when converting the captured audio, from the original sample rate of 48.0 kHz to 44.1 kHz prior to the mastering process for CD, the audio was slightly slowed down but not enough to be noticeable right away. It was only a few days after the mastering process that we noticed the mistake. However, we also felt that it has rendered the sound to be warmer and more relaxed, which gave the tracks a completely different vibe. Available as digital-only bonus tracks with the download.
Initially composed to be played as a live soundtrack (like at Roadburn Festival 2011 for example) on Carl Dreyer's "Vampyr" (silent film from 1932), this long musical piece was finally recorded in February 2012. The result is not a new Year Of No Light album but a long new track (72 minutes) with Year Of No Light classic heavy riffs mixed with more experimental and drone tunes that can remind us their collaborative records with Nadja or Thisquietarmy.
