Ramleh ‎– Conquest Play / Clockwork



2016 12" LP by legendary Ramleh on Entropy, with two exclusive tracks. "Conquest Play" is a terrifying guitar noise wail, while "Clockwork" is a rhythmic post-punk epic. Essential stuff.

Culver ‎– Recurrent Themes For Consumer Society



This 3" CDR released by MUZZedia VERHEAD in 2009 is a rerelease of an early Culver tape released by Saturated Tape in 1995. For those familiar with Culverian drone, this is quite different, as it is noise with a touch of hypnotic industrial machinery repetition. For more early Culver, a good place is 1000 Flights blog.

Maurizio Bianchi ‎– Escape To Bela-Zoar



This is if I remember correctly the second MB release I had ever heard (after Symphony For A Genocide) and I was stunned. I have slept many a time to the hypnotic sound of the first track which is the aural equivalent of the swarm of locusts mentioned in Revelations. The second track paints the picture of a decimated landscape after a nuclear explosion, while the third track is a Lovecraftian subterranean journey. 2006 CD on L-White Records.

Culver/Karst - Peach Volcano



Another tape in the "Volcano" Culver/Karst collab series. This one sounds quite subtler and quieter somewhat.  2009, Matching Head.

Mile High Volcano: Bleak Bliss

As already said, Karst is the drone project of George Proctor of Turgid Animal recs, Murder Book and Mutant Ape. No Prose cdr was released in 2008 on Phage Tapes.

Download



Sinking Sand tape, released in 2007 on Matching Head. This is much noisier than usual Karst stuff.

For more Karst look elsewhere here, as well in Bleak Bliss.

Karst/Culver/La Mancha Del Pecado - Split CDR



 

  

Karst is George Proctor (Turgid Animal, Mutant Ape, Murder Book, etc.), Culver is Lee Stokoe (Marzuraan, Skullflower, Matching Head tapes) and is the best drone project around. La Mancha Del Pecado is Miguel Perez (Skull Mask, Neck vs. Throat). Deep drone from all three artists. 2013 cdr on Turgid Animal.

Culver & Karst - Blood Volcano



Collaboration tape between Culver and Karst in 2008 on Turgid Animal, as part of the "Volcano" series. This sounds to me as one of the most noisy works by both projects.
