"Fuck your power electronics"
Year:    2010
Country:    US
City:    Chicago
Label:    Nihilist
Format:   CD
Tracks:    5
Time:    28 min.
Genre:   electronic
Style:              Noise

Raw old-school industrial  through the prism of Japanese electronic harsh noise and european old industrial music. Anarchist nightmare but not nihilistic at all. Diffused synth hiss, pretentious harsh noise arcades, crispy scurfy hateful harsh noise electronics. Another spit into the face of rotten society and shitty system. There were a few closed gigs. Also, loads of recordings were made. Most of them have been destroyed. Some parts of tapes full of piss and vinegar have just been lost or erased during terrible hangovers. All that have been saved - works from 1997 and later. Those are sounds recorded on our 4-track. The sounds of sick buzz in our heads. Torn apart sheets of iron and stone walls of slaughterhouses spattered with blood. This is the shit rubbed in the silk white sheets of modern industrial. This is the true old-school noise! No modern bullshit and nazi crap! Ⓐ

It is happy to announce "Koskemattomuus," the label's second release by the emerging industrial noise group, Kriminaaliset Metsänhaltijat, which follows on the footsteps of the bands recent "Anarkkia, Kaaos, Maailmanloppu!" EP [B!129]. The members of this shadow group of old-school industrial acolytes originally hail from Finland and from Karelia — a region and an autonomous republic of northwest Russia, between the Gulf of Finland and the White Sea. To paraphrase some of the band's own dogmatic yet oblique statements and manifestos, Kriminaaliset Metsänhaltijat quite accurately claim to have built their sound on the bones of such groups as S.P.K. and Throbbing Gristle, through a prism of Japanese harsh-noise and Finnish hardcore-punk, spewing out a nihilistic nightmare of diffused synth hiss, commanding metal percussion, waves of harsh-noise, anarcho-punk attitude, and dissident power-electronics. This "new" album, which the band actually recorded in 2001, furthers the group's association with the anarcho-punk scene [CRASS, et al] by presenting a fiercely grim anti-war statement. By conjuring the disasters of war, both historic and contemporary, the group lays the blame for the death of so many innocent civilians squarely on the shoulders of greedy politicians and big business. Kriminaaliset Metsänhaltijat weave their aggressive, dark industrial-noise style with segments of traditional, romantic Finnish war songs from World War II, as well of impassioned battlefield vocal segments, creating a complex and compelling tableaux that should appeal to a broad group of listeners, including fans from the martial music, minimal synth, crusty punk, and noise scenes. These are professionally duplicated CDs, with single panel, double-sided inserts, featuring striking color artwork; in jewel boxes with shrinkwrap.

"Anarkkia, Kaaos, Maailmanloppu!"

One of the best (but the best) release of this harsh noise project from Finland. Some people has described the tape like “nihilistic noise”, but the artist affirmed he is not nihlist but anarchist, pacifist and ecologist. So, he has clear ideas and has nothing to do with chaos or destruction. This cassette was made in only 30 copies by the russian label “Triangle Records” ( own the noise musician MAAAA, who currently lives in Poland ). And 1 year after, in 2009, another label was interested in made another re-issue, it was the turn of “BloodLust!” from the american capital of noise: Chicago city. Nowadays you can get this recording totally free in different net-platforms.
