globalWAVEsystem - "Dead=Live" (1992/1997 gws)

Limited edition CD-r; only fifty copies were made.
the cds themselves were spraypainted silver. (sparkly, shiny, pretty!)
surprisingly this still plays. what a lucky duck to get this one as i loved the first full length which was widely available.
i'm enjoying this disc again right now...

Liner Notes:
The tracks on this recording were completed in November 1992, anticipating live globalwavesystem performances that never happened. The mixed are all more in line with the band's intended sound for the full-length album Life Equals Death, which was recorded in a rush in August, 1992.

These versions of the songs represent some of the most interesting changes in the arrangements from the album. All are instrumental versions with no instruments excluded for live performances.

"Evaluate," from the original Will Not Play With Power 1.35, and the never-before released cover track, "The Hydrogen Bomb," have also been included.

"The (Hydrogen) Bomb" is an instrumental cover of the Lifesavers Underground song, "The Bomb."

1.deathstroke to youth (deathmix II)
2.it's only natural (natural dub for the club)
3.X (noisex)
4.it was born there
5.soul like ice (commitment start)
6.commitment (old start new end)
7.plug out (dallas)
9.yukionna (hot/cold)
10.2cinc! (rec mute mix)
12.evaluate (short)
13.the (hydrogen) bomb

ELEVEN (fear of faith) - "frustration" (self 1996)

one of my fave bands (Fear of Faith) during a transitional period.
1. why should we?
2. never
3. inside
4. undone
5. grieve
6. this momentary affliction
Review from ballistic test zine:

This six-song tape is the fourth album for a trio of guys formely known as Fear of Faith and who now reside under the moniker of Industry Eleven. While I did enjoy the terminal velocity and ferocity of the FoF sound, Frustration finds the band searching for their own identity, whereas the former entity was somewhat of a novelty.
First, the guitars are a notch lower on the speed gauge. The chainsaw-like guitars are now razor sharp instead of just a blur of noise which makes catching the grooves and riffs a lot easier. The monstor rhythm in "Why Should We", for example, is a sound that often plays out in my head at unexpected times of the day and one I immediately associate with this band.
Second, the band attempts to integrate a degree of melody into their sound through the vocals and synths. The heavily distorted vocals seem less harsh but are certainly still quite angry and bitter. The delivery is predominately in the form of yells or screams but there are a few moments of actual singing. I find myself being able to better empathize with the extreme emotional turmoil and strife the band is venting in their lyrics. On the surface, Eleven may appear to be wrought with nothing but gloom and doom. However, the listener can find hope buried in the sand if they are willing to dig for it. The angelic imagery that appears in the insert is one bit of evidence.
Dark ambient synths and pulsating electro percussion also help to distinguish Eleven from other cookie-cutter death/thrash metal bands. For example, the ambient synths accentuate the somberness of "Grieve", while on "Never" synthetic machine-gun fire percussion accelerates the pace. It's all nicely done and makes things more interesting to listen to.
This album has quite a few things going for it. Production is solid. It comes with two interchangable cover inserts that share a common gold, white, silver, and black colour scheme. You can choose to have a stern, intimidating face staring back at you or or an ethereal angel beckoning your spirit. Three of the songs here are not available on the band's 1997 CD release which is another reason why you might want to track down this tape. Frustration is a bitter metal album with a silver electro lining.

--Richard Maaranen

mikhail atom - "astroepos" (1996 self-released)

some great ambient stuff out of moscow here.
this cassette went on to be re-released in different formats over about the next 5 years.  
side a:
side b:

T.E.F. / Macronympha - "chemical peepshow / premium product" (1999)

cdr re-issue of the cassette version on Inner Space
typically great work from T.E.F. (one of my all time faves) and Macronympha

1-6=T.E.F. - untitled
7=Macronympha - premium product


various artists - "Tribute to Living Sacrifice" (2001 clenched fist)

one of the rare tribute albums that really satisfies.
many different bands of many different styles, from thrash to black, to  doom, rework living sacrifice tracks from their first several years in the highest quality way.
most of the covers come from the early (imho best period of l.s.) recordings with some from 'reborn' as well. All of the bands doing covers here do a great job here however, each adding their own twist.
see artists and tracks covered below in the track list.
forget whatever belief system is attached...justly or not, this is some fantastic metal.

1 Mindrage - Haven of Blasphemy
2 Crutch - Breathing Murder
3 Mordecai - Not Beneath
4 Soul Embraced - Truth Solution
5 Gnashing of Teeth - No Longer
6 Kekal - Mind Distant
7 Crimson Thorn - Anorexia Spiritual
8 Soterios - Distorted
9 Clemency - In the Shadow
10 Mistral - Threatened
11 Dwell Beneath - Unseen
12 26days Til Freedom - Dealing With Ignorance
13 Dirge - ...To Nothing
14 Living Sacrifice - Desolate
