More Info

"Diophantine Discs is pleased to announce our first 7", a split between Dead Shall Not Have Died In Vain and Dysthymia.

It gives me great please to release this new vinyl on Diophantine, featuring the work of Marc Benner's Dead Shall Not Have Died In Vain project, and my own Dysthymia project. Though started in 2000, DSNHDIV became most active five years ago and has released a number of limited CDrs and cassettes on RRRecords, Tape Fiend, Turgid Animal, and Marc's own Pottersfield label. His track here shows a more subtle and experimental side to this usually noisy project, with flowing ambient and the crashing and cracking of metals. Dysthymia began in late 2004 and the first release was a split cassette with Dead Shall Not Have Died In Vain. Since then there have been a number of cassettes and CDrs on Pottersfield, Self Abuse, BloodLust!, and Tape Fiend. The track here shows Dysthymia's dense analogue industrial/noise style.

Pressed on clear vinyl and housed in a custom printed color wallet. Edition of 300 copies." [label info]


"A split 7" on Diophantine Discs. Dysthymia is Kyle Wright, also the man behind the label, whose first release was also a split with Dead Shall Nor Have Died In Vain. That is the project of Marc Benner, who started in 2000. He has a bunch of releases on RRRecords, Tape Fiend and Turgid Animal as well as his own label Pottersfield. Apparently, since this is the first time I hear his music a more noise based outing, but here with an ambient industrial tapestry, with heavily reverb on the metal sheets that rumble on top. Dysthymia on the other side is more noise based, with crashing loop of industrial sound. The sound and the fury, but Wright keeps things well under control. I like both sides actually, but this is not 7" music, if such a thing exists (obviously it doesn't). Both sides seem to be out takes of longer sections, something that more music suffers from that is released on 7". Here a 10" would have been in place and then with a more appropriate beginning and end. Not that die hard fans of the genre would matter of course." [FdW / Vital Weekly]
