‘Click Interview’ with Blakk Harbor: ‘Creatively I Would Say Berlin Is A Stagnant Place For Me’

The Greek artist Angelos Liaros got previously involved with Mobthrow, which he defines as a dubstep project. Especially the second and last album of Mobthrow (cf. “Unfolded”) released in 2014 on Ad Noiseam was nothing less, but a masterpiece. Blakk Harbor is the newest sonic brainchild of this artist. The debut album “Madares” released on Ant-Zen is a new masterpiece revealing different influences, but confirming the genius of the artist. No doubt about it, “Madares” is one of the best albums I’ve heard in 2018! (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: What has been your initial goals to set up Blakk Harbor and are you still involved with Mobthrow? Angelos: Blakk Harbor is a fresh project and personal vinyl imprint focusing more into drone, industrial and experimental techno territories. I wanted to have a new fresh start with this project, explore new territories and have a different approach in my sound. Mobthrow has been a dubstep-era project strongly related with Ad-Noiseam label and all of that three ceased together. Q: The Blakk Harbor sound clearly reveals a truly passion for good-old analogue gear, but still for authentic instruments (from your native country I think). How did you come to mix it […]

Alfa Matrix relaunches e-store with massive 50% discount on complete catalogue (or almost)

The people behind the Belgina label Alfa Matrix have been pretty busy the past few months, not only are they preparing new releases, but they have also pimped their e-shop. The store has now re-opened and for the occasion the label has launched a massive 7-day long 50% discount sales in both their e-shop and on Bandcamp. It suffices to use the discount code backtraxx on Bandcamp or in the e-shop and you’ll get the 50% discount. Note that for the e-shop that code is valid on all products released before june 2018 while it’s valid on all releases on Bandcamp. Speaking of which, the label’s new store has a way better integration with Bandcamp: “That’s correct,” says Bernard Van Isacker, webdeveloper at Alfa Matrix, “we wanted to limit the friction people have when they visit our store, so from now on all bandcamp-only products are clearly visible and people will be directed instantly to the correct page on bandcamp to get the release.” The change didn’t go without a few hurdles so Bernard explains: “There is a lot going on under the hood of the e-shop and we have been debugging for the past weeks in order to be […]

Peter Murphy (Bauhaus) kicked out of own show in Stockholm after launching a bottle in the crowd

Never mess with a Swedish audience, Peter Murphy is also aware of that now. Murphy, who is touring Europe with Bauhaus bandmate David J, was literally thrown out of his own concert during a concert in Stockholm last night. That’s what Dagens Nyheter reports. As it seems Murphy threw a bottle right into the audience, unfortunately injuring a fan who got the bottle right n his face and who suffered injuries. The organisers intervened and threw Murphy out of the venue after which the police (or a security team, as the jackets don’t really show) intervened. A picture of the incident was posted on Facebook by Tom Homlund as you can see above and here’s an instagram video of the actual moment when Murphy launches the bottle.   View this post on Instagram   #bauhaus #petermurphy #nalen #davidj #stockholm A post shared by Angela (@d1zzydishes) on Dec 12, 2018 at 2:55pm PST The concert promoter also reacted in a Facebook post: “With one more song planned, the artists tour manager and technician decided to end yesterday’s concert with Peter Murphy since technical equipment had been destroyed due to incidents we at Nalen take very seriously. The artist acted in an […]

Porn returns with ‘The Darkest of Human Desires – Act II’

In 2017, Porn released its third album “The Ogre inside.- Act I”, the first act of a trilogy based on the character Mr Strangler. The story that goes with it: Mr Strangler expresses his dark impulses without limitations and has no boundaries. With his crew, he commits murders and massacres. He also invites everyone to make a step forward and invites you to express your darkest desires and join his death cult. In the second act, “The Darkest of Human Desires – Act II “, you can hear some of the most scariest serial killers and murderers : Richard Ramirez , Ed Kemper, Charles Manson, Richard Schaeffer or Jeffrey Dahmer. The new album is the first collaboration between Porn and Tom Baker, who mastered many mythic albums including “Antichrist Superstar” by Marylin Manson, “Downward Spiral” by Nine Inch Nails, “Psalm 69” by Ministry, “Hellbilly Deluxe” by Rob Zombie and so on.

Click Interview’ with Jk Flesh: ‘I Wanted The Machines To Breathe And Appear As If They’re Organisms’

JK Flesh is the electronic- or should I say techno project of Justin Karl Broadrick. Internationally praised and renowned for his involvement with Godflesh, JK Flesh brings a totally different exposure of the artist. He recently released the third JK Flesh full length entitled “New Horizon” on Electric Deluxe. It’s not pure techno music, but an interesting and somewhat experimental approach of the genre. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: What kind of work did you want to accomplish with “New Horizon” and how do you perceive the evolution in sound from the debut album “Posthuman” till the new work?  Justin: The evolution has been somewhat radical; “Posthuman” still contained the residue of my more established works, guitar and vocals much like Godflesh, but fundamentally electronic music, which was the albums intention. Ironically “Posthuman” was designed as a purely electronic statement, but the then label boss of 3by3, Steve, who was also a member of the much missed Cloaks, suggested that I integrate the vibe of my other work with guitars and vocals to make something more arguably unique, at that point I felt maybe he had a good point. So, I set about adding organic instrumentation to the existing […]
