More Info

"The two drunken bastards from Bocksholm (Peter Andersson of Raison D'кtre and Lina Baby Doll of Deutsch Nepal) are finally back with a new album and this time they have unleashed the Beast. Any mythological idea that Boxholm has become a great peaceful Eden is from now on eternally disproved. No one is safe anymore, not even the horror of Kisa. Birath - the Beast of the forge - is back and we are all captives inside his devilish mind, at least for 60 minutes after pressing play. Enjoy with a bottle of moonshine." [label info]

"Maybe the name Peter Andersson is a common name in Sweden, and hence it's no surprise that we have two musicians from the world of darker electronic music are called like. One we better know as Lina from Deutsch Nepal and the other one is better known as Raison D'etre. Both release their music is a parallel universe which is seldom covered by Vital Weekly, releases on such labels as Cold Meat Industry. The two Peters found each other in a project named Bocksholm, a small village where Lina used to live in the summertime (and which is actually called Boxholm). According Raison D'Etre, the music 'reflects the bad childhood environment of the ironworks in Boxholm.' There is indeed some sort of metallic rumble going on. The children of the village with iron rods against the fence of the garden, in which two children with the same name create music? Maybe that is some such thing that this music evokes here. Maybe I just read that into the music based on what I found. It's not difficult to
see any of their 'other' musical interests in this music. It's all highly atmospheric, drone like, but also with a fair amount of rhythm loops, a bit of orchestral inspired movement, but also it's perhaps less dark than one should expect based on their respective past releases. There is an interesting 'experimental' component in this music. Maybe 'electro-acoustic' is too much of a term, but it's not all about heavy dark ambient drone music, but more like a nice free, adventurous album. Let's try to work with this sound, let's loop that piece of clanging metal, and oh 'you know we did a bit of voices like we did before, in 'Forging Hammers'. That is the sort of spirit, which adds to the joy for the listener, I think. Despite it's occasional doomy character, these boys certainly had fun doing this." [FdW/Vital Weekly]
