004 - Prostitutes Of The 19th Century "Crepuscular Nature In An Era Of Arrogance"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Collection of 9 tracks that have a fine line between pure static wall with certain industrial - dark ambient elements that makes this a very powerful and outstanding release. There is not a single part of this release that felt  monotonous like most of the pure static wall projects, there are lots of submerged sounds that felt developing themselves within the tracks.  Moonlight, Streetwalkers, A tragic life in a classed Society, Fallen Women, Le Sadisme Anglais, all the titles themselves makes a portrait of very surreal Victorian images all developing in bleak white and black (which is also huge part of the design/artwork that comes with this release) but at the same time there is something very colorfoul and mesmerizing to the way this was constructed. While there are lots to listen from Prostitutes Of The 19th Century, sure this is a great release to start that leaves you hungry for more... this is one of those... Pro manufactured CDr in digipack case limited to 40 copies.

005 - Richard Ramirez "A Room of One's Own"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
As always the MASTER of the art of static in US territory comes again to prove and dare you with one hell of violent and harsh release. This release have parts were you can sense the use of an old radio that feels like an humid cheap motel were all the degenerates will have an orgy all while being filmed on an old VHS format. The main plot develops here with no second guessing since the audio interludes are graphic (porn) and the perfect companion for this piece of erotic violent noise. Like aural BDSM, perverse and sadistic. Pro manufactured CDr in digipack case limited to 40 copies.

006 - Snuff Prom / Snuff Victim "Split"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Richard Ramirez Snuff Prom's project creates art from static noise, where the first track sounds like a nightmare walk into an abandoned farm in the night. Almost no light but the cold and battered ambience of the surroundings prepares you to expect an apparition in the darkest shadows of the barn, while in the second track everything gets lower and darker. The shadow has devoured you and now you are trapped in the realms of the unknown, everything is in total silence just when you think everythind finished, Snuff Victim attack starts, this is the further search and desperation of the victim, until the pure violence and bloodshed starts just to end with the farmer hiding the bodies and the police looking for your remains. A great pair developing the soundtrack for your total destruction. Pro manufactured CDr in white dvd case limited to 40 copies.

007 - Geert Kohler "Liquid Sense of Decay"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Doktor Pery from Satanismo Calibro 9 side project, this is pure old school noise that has a warmth analog feel to it. The attack is very deep and obscure in intentions without relaying in cheap shock tactics. The titles refer more to the sound created withing like Too Long, Too Slow is a drone that builds towards the 3 minute mark into something even more immense and crushing like a space ship approaching the atmosphere and destroying everything towards the half were it constructs into a series of electronic assaults without loosing the intrinsic mammoth drone in the background. Boiler as the second track is simply oppressive and bold. The sense of build from scratch towards the harsh attack is a clear intention. There are many variations and lots of movements. But the overall feel is to be lost in space while everything is about to implode. There is always a sense of tension and release within each of the 5 tracks. Pro manufactured CDr in red dvd case limited to 40 copies.

Annoucement regarding the Straight Panic and Monowolf tapes

ANNOUNCEMENT:

It's been a while since I made an update, but there are something I have to said about the last Modern Decadence batch that due some personal problems I wasn't able to make.

This is related to the Straight Panic "I Have Bricked Up My Heart and Black'd My Eyes" C40 and Monowolf "Anthology 2012-2018" C80 while the faux-leather bags turned out to be good, the stickers I used for the cover that were pasted in the front of the bags, it seem during the shipment they fall apart or get all sticky and eventually they get ruined, on top of that some packages I used sheet of paper in order to avoid it but it seems I made it worst, so everyone that have any problem with the stickers on the bags and need a replacement just email me to: mndecadence@gmail.com so I can send you new stickers.

First batch of the year NOW AVAILABLE! 02/20/19

MD 015 - The Rita / Gamiani "Semenyaka Toe Box / De Saint-Ange Thigh High" C20
(Description by Miguel Perez)
The Rita has been since the late 90’s a big institution on how static noise has to be done. Obsession, focus and individuality are the main characteristics of Sam McKinlay’s body of work. Sharks, WWII Divers, Guns, BA/KU Skaters, Nylons, Flappers, Makeup and currently ballerina feet and positions (among others), are some of the themes recurrent to his releases. This time the ballerina toe obsessions lies and focus on the soviet Ludmila Semenyaka toes and movements. All thru the clinic development of static and textures created from a deep study of the subject matter. The textures are always changing and barely this can be classified as motionless HNW. Coming from The Rita you will always be subject to many images in constant flow and movement. Fascinating for any fan of his work and a great starting point if you don’t have a clue about who The Rita is. While Gamiani from Sweden’s Johan Strömvall Hammarstedt (who also is responsible for the long running Ominous Recordings and has been bringing a lot of fresh air into the recurring theme of nylon obsessed HNW). This time he offers a track of cascading static that is unstoppable and fierce. It is a great companion to the Rita track since the static development is not stationary or saturated. The exploration of waves and subtilities makes this ride a very enjoyable one. The feel of darkness, nylon and purity of obsession are there and it feels as a great addition to his growing body of work. Another ace work from a great act. C20 limited to 100 copies in a ziplock bag.

MD 016 - Straight Panic "I Have Bricked Up My Heart and Black'd My Eyes" C30
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Thomas Boettner delivering a fresh and invigorating dose of industrial electronics. Focusing more in atmosphere than ultimate aggressive assaults. This is a perfect soundtrack for a dark horror end of times type movie, With tracks such as Cocaine Breath that razor sharp delivery of electronic punishment via high frequencies while a rolling cement machine envelopes the whole tunnel feel. Clear vocal attack that is very discernible and upfront, also tracks that are Harsh noise and spoken word sounding as a lost post apocalyptic transmission, to tracks such as Stained Sheets with menacing, dark, leveled and blacked excellent metallic delivery that forms visuals along the vocals creating some sort of ambience to the spoken word. C30 limited to 50 copies comes with lyric insert in faux-leather bag.

MD 017 - Monowolf "Anthology 2012-2018" C80 + Zine
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Collection of tracks that serves as introduction to this Fargo, USA Power Electronics unit that focuses on religious and political extremism and the psychology of control. There is no time for double or cryptic feelings here, the attack is pure, direct and disciplined. Each track has its own soundscape that pummels you into a hypnotic state, that brings extremism, revolution and total disdain for the current and past political power. The assault brings to mind early UK acts like Suttcliffe Jugend or Con-Dom, but this has its own personality. This is for everyone into deep, oppressing and pitch black states of the mind and a total disdain for power. C80 limited to 50 copies comes with 14 page zine in faux-leather bag.

MD 018 - Hate Audition "Knights of Judgment" C10
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Another US PE act out of Michigan, USA with a short, but very prolific history of leftist themed releases questioning the current state of things in the first world. From false flags, bullshit news, libertarian culture and more. It seems that the US power electronics current interests lies on the inevitable revolution that is breeding in the heart of the country. Many leaning to one side, others pushing the other. But is time for extreme answers and this project seems to be one of those voices raising from the depths. Air raids of feedback with motion movements of knobs giving place to a subtle layer of drones and the fierce raging vocals shouting at the distance. C10 limited to 50 copies.

MD 014 - Swollen Organs "Religious Foreplay"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
A release that goes from Power electronics in a very conservative way of doing it to a more mechanical effort from the get go with a laminated and scrap metal in a very slow, menacing way like if you needed anything more than total electro torture with commanding vocals, and finishing the release with one of the the most apocalyptic of the tracks, starting with someone preaching and is answered by the terror and aggression of real hell.

MD 013 - Contagious Orgasm "White Lace Curtains In The Window"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
A very rewarding release, that reminds to those early 90’s Italian industrial tapes not very far removed to early Maurizio Bianchi, Side A is a good dosage of old school synth, a real cerebral pounding hammer nightmarish music not for the weak. While Side B is the darkest side of Fulci’s soundtracks along some Giallo. A very cinematic side for the imaginary movie you craft on your headspace. This side compliments the first in the best of ways. This truly is recommended for those into the old school of this art. C30 limited to 50 copies.

003 - Slashed Pretty Girls "Delitto Carnale"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Richard Ramirez project, one of the main founders of the genre  and an implacable noise generator that is a master of his craft. He never seems to overthink or to overproduce anything leaving a feel of minimalist greatness that characterizes most of his work. Not in a bad way. But in the way a master crafts art. Expert in all senses he does not need a shitload of pedals or big pretentious concept to make some of the best work in the whole genre history. This is another example of what he does best. This release goes from the Minimalistic, granular and windy feel, to the Corrugated small signal transmissions and machinery and industrial pounding static to finish it with a track full of terror night drone.

002 - Train Cemetery "Pessimist"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Minimalistic ambient noise wall that builds more like the sound of slow lava crawling down the hill burning all in its way. A really  calm, depressive and unchanging wall. A very GREY and sad release. Not for those in the joyful side of life.

MD 010 - Depravar ‎"Red Fetish"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Ultra brutal harsh noise/power electronics attack with depravity and hard edged intensity. The album burns fire with Bodies Collector, a track that sometimes is reminiscent to old Incapacitants that gives step for Red Fetish, a more controlled attack abusing on feedback alongside Gloomy where things start the brutal mayhem once again is on Sharpened on the end this is a harsh release that goes from violent brutality to creeping darkness and all in between. An electric nightmare come true, a release that deals with fetish towards serial killers and blood. C40 cassette tape limited to 100 copies.

MD 011 - Positron Emission Tomography "Murder Archives: Orgasm From Beyond"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Harsh noise cascading electric magma. starts with Bizarre Emotions droning like a big night coming to give way to the oppressive ambience of walls with no frills, a waterfall of noise and bordering at times on the relaxing white noise in a more cerebral manner. The themes are also outstanding to tackle on. At the end sounds like HNW but with its own personality, something rare in the scene. C28 cassette tape comes in a real biohazard / clinical waste bag.

3 new releases out now! 04/15/2018

MD 003 - Sodomy From Beyond ‎"Triumph Of The Hunter"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Sodomy from Beyond comes from the violent side of power electronics and this one is another heavy statement of this. Begins with the aptly titled Smell of Innocence, this sounds unsettling and infame, slow moving pain all and for one innocent soul. Drugged Prostitue is violent and suffocating in its hallucigenic round approach, and the perversion is just beginning, Feels perfect soundtrack for a snuff movie or the underground exploitation cinema, all tracks deal with a somewhat favorite theme of the artist, so much desire and pleasure to PRODUCE pain in the harmless and unsuspecting victim. This comes and developes in your head as getting inside the brain of a sick maniac ready to end your like in the more painful way. DEFINITELY this release is not for the weak or the easily offended (so much of it these days). This is not for you if your prejudices don’t let you get inside your sickest desires. Is offensive, violent and VERY cold. This a great one since it grows in a slower, menacing, heavy way instead of the usual direct assault to the senses. Total ACE... Limited edition c40 tape comes in a yellow/clear metallic bag.

MD 008 - Werewolf Jerusalem / Red Hook ‎"One May Be Dreaming"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
Red Hook began this collaboration in a total wash of brutal old school feedback. It seems berserk in its approach and extremely grating, like thousand raid sirens going nuts. Microphones throw away escaping from the holocaust approaching. Then the next assault is taking you down in the gutter, more like having you in the underground hearing the rad and destruction above. Very underground and enjoyable. While side two of the Red Hook deal starts howling in pain at you, at your face, at your soul. And suddenly with Werewolf Jerusalem the ambient kicks in. He knows how to transmit a full panopticon of images and emotions now in a very effortless way given decades long of experience in this realm. With very minimal tools, he masters the art of static and terror like no one does…this first one on his part of the split is almost silent and very menacing, like a beast lurking in the dark. Walking, smelling its pray while this is hiding with no salvation. His more drone like projects come to mind. This is something that you need alone in the dark, with no one around and preferable with headphones full on. Not a single second wasted. Side B is full on blood rain, a static wash of electronic razors, grey and cold. The TEXAS way (but now he lives in the northern part of USA, but nevertheless he was and will always be the Texas king of static to the world). Limited edition double c90 cassette tape.

MD 009 - Visitation ‎"We Are Connected"
(Description by Miguel Perez)
As a double Cdr effort Visitation comes to bring a more ambient approach to the static assault. Is grey and bleak, cold and windy. Each track somehow evokes an image in the mind of its creator (Sinners, Corrupted Therapy Session, Meet the Void, Moral Divide, etc) that somehow in its concept seems that has a deep connection with the inner self. This might be the reason of the title of these CDs. The static in its ambient approach is almost drone, very bright and trebly with little movement between tracks. It feels VERY minimalistic and untouched by the human hand when generated. I feel staring at the cold, grainy and windy English northern sea. Raining and salty while embracing the nothingness within the mind. A very bleak approach in its minimalism, not much going on since remains hard in its approach of no change, no evolution, no development principles. But at the same time there is a somewhat warm feel when listening to this static noise and thinking on what you are or what we are as human beings in these horrible times and throw the ego away and become one with the void.
