(Ele Ypsis is the tortured child of distant artistic lovers that arises from the collaboration between French singer and composer Laure Le Prunenec (Öxxö Xööx, Igorrr, Corpo-Mente and Rïcin) and belgian composer and producer Stélian Derenne).


Currents flowing across salt bridges

When to sleep and dream is just a dream after sleep.

(Battle of Mice was a post-metal supergroup consisting of Julie Christmas (Made Out of Babies), Josh Graham (ex-Neurosis, ex-Red Sparowes, A Storm of Light), Joel Hamilton (Book of Knots), Tony Maimone (Book of Knots, Pere Ubu), and Joe Tomino (Fugees, Dub Trio, Peeping Tom). The band was formed when vocalist Julie Christmas and guitarist/keyboardist Josh Graham met in Austin, Texas while touring with their respective bands in 2005. The album, which was released under Neurot Recordings, contains seven tracks heavily influenced by the metal, post-rock and noise rock roots from which the group was derived. The song "At the Base of the Giant's Throat" features a recorded 911 call between vocal sections. The band's name is derived from a saying by Alexander the Great pertaining to a military invasion of Crete).

Ydinaseiden lähettäminen kotona

Dissemination of proton beams on the arctic circle.

(Incredible compilation of Mika Vainio’s earliest work with Janne Koski and Tapio Onnela in pioneering Finnish industrial/noise unit Gagarin Kombinaatti circa 83-85. Vainio was just 20 when these recordings were made. Until now, the only locatable evidence of Gagarin-Kombinaatti’s existence was an intriguing listing on discogs - a single track featured on a 2CD of early Finnish avant-garde - but now Sähkö prove they were a real, and rather wicked band, taking strong cues from TG, Einstürzende Neubauten and Test Department, and moulding them into a brace of cranky, funked-up garage industrialisms. It’s very easy to hear Vainio’s signature noise laced throughout the collection, from the bladesaw blizzards of Survos, to the cold, clipped drums and brooding bass tone of Reikäkorttia, or the windswept atmospheres of Osat, for instance. But they’re only component elements of the band, which, thanks to the rudimentary recording techniques, sounds as though they’re soldered together, sparking up expressive, freeform jams ranging from the cold swagger of Tiedonantaja to proto-techno drum patterns and workshop noise in Ukaasi and the dirgey crawl of Raskas / Chemical Weapons).

Fusion of heavy water to heal the soul

(King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard is an Australian psychedelic rock band that formed in 2010 in Melbourne, Victoria. The band consists of Stu Mackenzie (vocals, guitar, flute), Ambrose Kenny Smith (vocals, synths, harmonica), Cook Craig (guitar), Joey Walker (guitar, vocals), Lucas Skinner (bass), Eric Moore (drums, management), and Michael Cavanagh (drums). The band is noted for its energetic live performances and prolific recording output, having released thirteen full-length studio albums since 2012. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard's early work was primarily a blend of surf music, garage rock and psychedelic rock, while more recent releases show a broader range of influences, including elements of film music, progressive rock, folk, jazz, soul and heavy metal).

Începem festivalul țiganului care nu se încheie niciodată

(Fanfare Ciocarlia are a 24-legged brass beast whose eastern funk groove has torn up halls and festivals across the planet. Their energy and ingenuity having won them fans from Melbourne to Memphis, Tokyo to Toulouse. Having learnt their craft at the feet of their fathers and grandfathers Fanfare's members proudly approach every concert as a challenge to both entertain audiences and keep the true spirit of Gypsy music alive. Fanfare Ciocarlia went on to conquer the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia. The Gypsies may only have spoken their local Romany dialect but their music spoke an international language and audiences responded to their fierce Balkan funk by turning concerts into parties. What Fanfare Ciocarlia played was something new. The Times of London described it as "a heavy, heavy monster sound" and Fanfare's recordings have taken their eerie Balkan groove into dance clubs across the planet).

Traveling through the cosmic ether.

A secret revelation

Sobs of loneliness of the old high birth lady.

(Side project from Godflesh's frontman Justin K. Broadrick; the name comes from the final song on the final Godflesh record, a fitting title for Justin's next foray into rock music. While virtually every side project was electronic-based, Jesu is guitar-based. In 2003 Justin began writing material for this project by himself. The initial tracks that would appear on the Heartache EP were performed solely by himself and reflect much of the time period of his life. By the end of 2003 however, a full band was put together, featuring Dermot Dalton on bass and Ted Parsons on drums. Both members played in Godflesh at one point or another).

Exploring the senses of earth

Destroyed nature claiming for rest.

(Orakle has always been about exploring, putting into perspective and even blurring the edges of the metal genre. Along the years, the band originating from the Paris suburbs patiently assembled the pieces of a very personal and multi-faceted approach to extreme music. Starting back in the middle of the 90’s, under the impulse of 14 yo friends Pierre Pethe (aka. Clevdh) and Frederic Gervais (aka. Achernar), it’s only in 2002, with the self-produced EP ‘‘L’ineffable émoi’’, that Orakle lays the foundation stone of their style: an epic, sophisticated black-metal built on contrasts and atmospheres, with French lyrics exclusively. In 2005, debut album ‘‘Uni aux cimes’’ takes the intensity of their music a step further, revealing Orakle in its rawest, most extreme shape. Three years later, the band gets signed by Holy Records and releases its second effort: the critically acclaimed ‘‘Tourments & Perdition’’, featuring refined, progressive and challenging black-metal. With a growing fanbase, Orakle then performs at numerous venues and festivals, including Hellfest in 2009).

(Gravity is a french metal band with various influences, characterized by a powerful, atmospheric and melodic music. In a style that they own, the band evolves between hardcore parts and melodic parts to return with vocal melodies which are no less brutal. Influenced as much by Deathcore/Metalcore as Progressif Metal, Djent, Postcore, Heavy Metal and Death Melodic, Gravity creates his own musical universe, always mixing melody and might).

Looking the inner hell

Micro electrobursts sourrounding our atavic evilness.

(Founded in 2007 by Thibault, Abstrusa Unde is the result of a quest for several musical styles integration into a single entity. This project has been initially built to record a 70 minutes music piece based on the Orpheus Myth, exploring various musical landscapes from electro-jazz to black metal. The line-up included guitars, drums, keyboards, male and female singers, but also classical instruments such as violins and a cello. After nearly two years of work, the project seemed too ambitious for the group and was abandoned. Excerpts from "Orfeo" were recorded on a demo in June 2008. After a few lineup changes, Abstrusa Unde is back to work on new compositions less complex technically but still favoring the mixing of multiple influences. "Introspection", our first long-length recording, is showing several musical directions that we will continue to develop in the next album).

Onorând strămoșii cu sunetele trecutului

(Dirty Shirt is one of the most active and original rock bands in Romania. Its unique style results from the combination of rock/metal with various other musical elements: Romanian folk music, funk, electro and world music. Dirty Shirt & Ansamblul Transilvania "FolkCore DeTour" is an exceptional live album recorded at Arenele Romane, Bucharest on 1 April 2017, an unprecedented project juxtaposing for the first time on stage a metal band and a Romanian traditional folk orchestra).

Throwing up in a black hole

Sounds travelling beneath the event horizon.

(Heptaedium’s musical madness could be placed somewhere between Djent forefathers Meshuggah, Breakcore-Hero Igorrr, Master Plumber Super Mario and French Baguettes. This band is an artificial child of a world in ruins, maintained in its artificiality by multinationals trying to conquer space. Shaped by technology, it has implanted genes of Strapping Young Lad, Vildhjarta or Master Boot Record; out of his infected incubator, the metal cold as death, the kid is a creature in the image of his time. An offshoot more human, with the body that jerks and the mouth that opens on a precipice. His song is destructured, icy, purely technical. One listens to it with the impression of hearing a machine scream, a creeping snake, an indefinite form moving forward by jerks).
