Rukirek - Arabian Nightmare

Record: 2001 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1411.0234
Dark Psy-Trance, Hi-Tech, EBM

Thoughts on the real and the unreal, the facets of their contact, about who we really are, and whether all around is real... The question itself can affect the response. Attempts to escape from reality can often lead to its most reliable form. A person aims at self-reflection in place and time, which surround it. It's like trying to wake up from a slumber, but at the same time - a dream within a dream, just another revival from viscous sweet embrace of fictional gods of sleep and illusion for a moment, to take a breath of air and to dive back into the arms of Mara. Is it possible at all, to win the battle for reality? What if there is no reality and no unreality? Realizing this fact, you can release the consciousness into free fall, watching the kaleidoscope of reflections of the world in which we once believed.

Nickolay Fedorenko - Eco

Record: 2013-2014 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1410.0229
Spacesynth, Electroclash

We live in a time of new technologies and reach to outer space. But we sometimes forget the nature of our home. Our cradle - Earth. The humankind shall pause to think of how to preserve it or even make it a better place. Eco is a future world where man, technology, and nature coexist in harmony. A world free from ecological catastrophes and reckless use of valuable resources. A world where intelligence rules for the good of all.

The Dead Process - Neurotic Chronicles

Record: 2008-2013 • Edition: 2014 • USC-WR-1409.0219
Post-Industrial, EBM

Think of it as a case history of the disease. Nihilism in relation to the selfish, mundane and consumer reality, stagnant and inertial. Estrangement from the world in which one have to survive, in which human ceases to be a human, and becomes a hungry wolf that can rend any. Intrusive mass media takes roots in the brain, accustoms to the trough. All this appears not a celebration of life, but decline and disintegration - the dead process that rapidly destroys the human ideals: pursuit of self-giving and self-realization, sincerity and naturalness, assistance and cooperation. Life is just like a surreal movie, devoid of logic and sense, decorations everywhere - deception, and behind them there is nothing - hollow. Lostness in options for own behavior, mainly obsessive, fatigue and depression at the peak of the devastation and despair suggest the only way out - to fall asleep and don't wake up, drown in eternal peace. Infinity of internal conflicts - periods of Cycle: fear, panic, apathy - again and again. The dead process draws in, the resistance continues.

Okkulta - Horrors

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1311.0189
EBM, Industrial

The quarry is more spacious inside than it seems at first glance outside. For a hundred meters goes the straight wide hall that gradually turns into a winding narrow tunnel. Daylight doesn't reach here, and you're left to your own illumination means. Beware losing the vigilance, because metallic constructions are only a part of danger, - you may easily fall into a bottomless abyss, if you take a wrong step near the edge. Try to throw something into it and listen if it ever resound. While you follow the rail path, the darkness becomes heavier and more impenetrable, sometimes almost physically perceptible. This surrounding fills your essence with overwhelming sense of fear. Horror begins...

Okkulta - Lunar Sanctus

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1302.0146
EBM, Electro, Trance

Melancholic tunes with romantic atmosphere and some hidden aggression inside. The sanctuary of neon light, which covers all around. It is buried in severe lands that protects it from strangers. Only the endurant reaches and gains the warm light of fire trees. All that you need is a damn confidence in yourself.

Vermos - Сверхблизкий космос (Superclose Cosmos)

Record: 2013 • Edition: 2013 • USC-WR-1301.0141
Indietronica, Dubstep, EBM

The Superclose Cosmos is a dummy, handmade planetarium in a tiny room, naive simulation, just like special effects of the Soviet tapes about conquest of the Universe. Parade of the paper stars hanging on invisible threads, plates with names of constellations; blue-eyed girls in the flight suits dancing under control of feelers of an intergalactic octopus; the Siberian shamans singing of phosphoric stars on wallpaper; rhythms of engine rooms of "Pegasus" recreated by the drum machine; figurine of wise Buddha laughing over this space samsara.

Antalio - A Look to the Sky

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1210.0116
Traditional Electronic

The stylish return into the golden age of soft melancholic tunes as they are still with us dispersed in the skies.

RDDNP - Mesoplanet

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1207.0067
Industrial, EBM

Human desire for discoveries in the universe is irresistible and gives the power to solve the most complex problems. Space voyagers have to overcome great distances, avoid impacts of asteroids and guard the against deadly stellar wind and not to get lost in space. And a new planet appears within eyeshot. It reveals itself as a small ball in the illuminator, but then it slowly unfolds its surface in front of enchanted gaze and finally forms the horizon. Exciting sense of discovery fills the daring hearts and mixes with alarming presentiment of unknown danger, which may lurk in this wonderful alien world...

Antalio - Precious Pressures

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1204.0048
EBM, Spacesynth

In the third album Antalio turns from optimistic spacesynth to darker and experimental sound with some industrial touch. Using the old soviet synthesizer Formanta and American Ensoniq, Antalio tries to make some raw and depressive sound. This time the music is pretty aggressive, but it is still melodic and fascinating, as bright as all his the works.

Okkulta - Souls Collector

Record: 2012 • Edition: 2012 • USC-WR-1203.0029
EBM, Futurepop, Trance

The first full-lenght work of Okkulta is an impressive mix of instrumental EBM, Futurepop and Trance. The story is dedicated to the Souls Collector who walks through the ancient dismal catacombs, trapping thoughtless visitors and gathering their souls. If you like dynamic and symphonic industrial music, you surely must let the Souls Collector get your soul!
