More Info

Lobenswerte Re-issue dieses frhen HLADNA-Albums, mehrschichtige Schwlle von metallisch-fliessenden Lava-Klang, heruntergetunte Gesnge, alles verliert sich in unendlich grossen Hallrumen... auch wild ekstatisch-krachige Parts kommen vor... frhe MAEROR TRI sind hier auch nicht weit..

"The reissue of early album from Saint-Petersburg noise artist Nikolay Kalmykov's project Hladna. Recorded in 1998-1999 and released as a very limited CDR, it is still one of the best records ever made by Russian industrial scene and the CD edition was long overdue. This is ritual ambient with some additions of noise and metal percussion, reminding of some classic Lustmord, Cranioclast or early Hybryds tracks, but the sound is more raw and harsh. The overall atmosphere of industrial decay is rather brutal and rusty than profound and mystical here, but there are obvious strong primordial currents in this music that wake up your archaic patterns. The release comes as a beautiful paper folder limited to 300 numbered copies." [label info]
