Lux Atenea News nº11.536: CLICKS "GLITCH MACHINE" 2CD BOXSET (Dependent Records).


2CD BOXSET, LIMITED TO 200 COPIES WORLDWIDE. It is rare that it takes as long for a band from being discovered to getting signed as in the case of CLICKS. However, the Polish trio has been working on its debut album "GLITCH MACHINE" for almost three years after gracing the underground with several nifty compilation tracks and remixes. "GLITCH MACHINE" was well worth the wait, though, since the three musicians, CONTROLLED COLLAPSE-mastermind Kr-lik amongst them, have created an original piece full of modern vibes and minimalist nonchalance. The album is a hybrid of traditional EBM, Electroclash with reserved Vocoder vocals and a pinch of timeless club feeling. Nitzer Ebb, Daft Punk and Anthony Rother may serve to describe the stylistic path that CLICKS explore. The title "GLITCH MACHINE" is reflected within the music on the album, balancing perfection, improvisation and digital recklessness. CLICKS are indeed the ambitious, slightly tongue-in-cheek glitch within the concept of Dark Electronics, the cool systemic error. With glitches like them, the whole does not only get more exciting, but tolerable in the first place. As for that, we can say thank you to CLICKS. Special super limited Box-Edition, coming with a six tracks bonus-CD, including an amazing remix by GINGER SNAP5 + others and 4 artwork postcards! STRICTLY limited to 200 copies worldwide!

Lux Atenea News nº11.535: ULVER "ATGCLVLSSCAP" DOUBLE-VINYL.


NEW ALBUM ON DOUBLE-VINYL AND CD! Vinyl comes in limited edition Gate-fold sleeve including outer protection sleeve, 180 gram BLACK Vinyl. ’House of Mythology’ proudly presents the new Ulver gatefold double album vinyl and CD, with over 80 minutes of material. This album consists of multitracked and studio-enhanced live, mostly improvisational, rock and electronic soundscapes, 2/3 of which has never been heard before. The basis for ATGCLVLSSCAP arrives from recordings made at 12 different live shows that Ulver performed in February 2014 with an improvisatory approach. As Kristoffer Rygg, the prime mover of the band since its inception, puts it wryly, "The tour was to be an experiment, kind of loose and scary for a band as 'set in their ways' as us." Once the tour was over, it was down to his bandmate Daniel O'Sullivan to take charge of these multitrack recordings in London. Anders Møller, Kristoffer Rygg and Tore Ylwizaker got involved a bit later from their end in Oslo. What resulted is the widescreen sweep and atmospheric splendour of ATGCLVLSSCAP, ultimately a piece of work that exists above and beyond any conventional live recording. As always in the world of Ulver, influences are diverse, yet as Rygg notes, "There are clear nods to sounds from the past." Many of these dwell in progressive, electronic and krautrock realms, heralding a lifelong love within the band for the music of the 70s. Even when the band revisits an earlier gem from 2000's Perdition City album, as on 'Nowhere (Sweet Sixteen)', it's reinvigorated by their expansive and emotionally charged approach. Shaking up their creative process, the band have summoned up a unique testimony to the creative power of a mighty force free of genre or convention. ATGCLVLSSCAP is progressive in the truest sense of the word.

Lux Atenea News nº11.533: THE GLEN & JOE SHOW "LOCK ME OUT" LIMITED WHITE VINYL (Artoffact Records).


LONG LOST TRACKS ON BLACK OR LIMITED WHITE VINYL! YOU CAN BUY THIS FROM OUR EUROPE SHOP Formed to perform live on October 31st, 1982 opening for Al Nelson's (later of Hilt) Politik Krash, The Glen and Joe Show is a synth based project that grew out of the bubbling brew of Vancouver musicians at the time. In the Spring of 1983, after Images In Vogue returned from their first Canadian tour and fresh off being signed by Warner Canada, IIV members Glen Nelson and Joe Vizvary spent some time in Mushroom Studios with producer Dave Ogilvie and created a New Orderesque synthpop track called Lock Me Out. The project was never meant to be Images in Vogue, and so they dubbed it The Glen and Joe Show, a sort of summery, light-hearted break from the stressful life of major labels and big-time tours. Featuring Glen Nelson's wonderfully melodic vocals and a cleverly catchy chorus, as well as some classic synth sounds courtesy Vizvary's Prophet 5, Lock Me Out is the quintessential long-lost hit -- literally kept in a drawer for 30 years -- but able to transport you to 1983 from the moment the lush synth chords clash with their percussive flare. While the Glen and Joe Show did not record again until 2007, it remains a pivotal project in the history of Vancouver's early electronic scene. Vizvary and Nelson went on to release a string of very successful singles with Images in Vogue for Warner, and producer Ogilvie's next project turned out to be Skinny Puppy. Artoffact Records is proud to present Lock Me Out as a 7" vinyl, remastered from the original tape. The single includes the instrumental b-side Gravel, originally written and recorded in 1983, re-recorded for this release in 2015. 100 units will be pressed on white vinyl, and a black vinyl edition is also available. WHITE VINYL, 100 COPIES BLACK VINYL

Lux Atenea News nº11.532: e "THE LEVITATION SYNDROME" LIMITED PINK VINYL (Artoffact Records).


ESSENTIAL COMPLETE RECORDED WORKS ON BLACK OR LIMITED PINK VINYL! YOU CAN BUY THIS FROM OUR EUROPE SHOP e (lower case!) was an experimental and new wave project that grew out of the burgeoning Vancouver punk scene around 1980. The project was the brainchild of Gary Middleclass (aka Gary Bourgeois) who also recorded with underground punk band The Generators, as well as the more famous Payola$. Bassist Michael Wonderful, also of The Generators, Brock Rock (Brock Smith), and Aleh (aka Nathan Holiday) formed the core of the initial band. Along with producer Bob Rock, e recorded two bleepy and punked out synth tracks for the project's debut 7", Reaction / Coincidence. Middleclass then took e towards a more minimal approach with its second 7", Prime Cuts, which was released as the original soundtrack to the Paul Wong videotape of the same name. The 7" was the first to feature a new line-up: Young Canadians' drummer Barry Taylor, and keyboardist-vocalist Gina Daniels joined Middleclass in what would become the core of e for the next two years. Middleclass, Daniels, and Taylor are joined on these tracks by Glen Nelson of Images In Vogue and Mobile Clones fame. The project's only 12" (and final release) was The Levitation Syndrome, a joyful burst of youthful energy and minimal synth that is as fresh today as it was when it was released by the cult label Rogelletti Records 35 years ago. Everything on these tracks comes together brilliantly; the melodies, the shy and fragile vocals, the subtle and excellent drumming, and the splendour of a short-lived minimal synth scene with all the energy of punk rock, west-coast style! Artoffact Records presents an authorized and remastered edition of the collected works of e. The vinyl includes all tracks from e's three releases, as well as a bonus track, E 925, which appeared on the cult-classic Vancouver Complication compilation, and showcases the most experimental side of Middleclass's ouevre. The record is housed in a beautiful sleeve, replicating the Levitation Syndrome artwork, which was originally designed by Steven R. Gilmore (famous for his cover artwork for Skinny Puppy, Images in Vogue, Chris & Cosey, Severed Heads and many more). Also includes an insert that contains restored cover art (both back and front) of the two e 7" vinyl, as well as a rare photograph of the project members. The collection is topped off with an excellent e biography by Michael Wonderful.

Lux Atenea News nº11.530: DEUTSCH NEPAL "ALCOHOLOGY" CD.


NEW ALBUM FROM THIS CULT ACT! ON CD. Deutsch Nepal and Lina Baby Doll is back after 5 years in the retreat of the Swedish woods with an all new album! Obviously in between (or even during) the recordings there was some examination of bottles and the liquors they contained…. Indeed: the object for the album is the impact alcohol might have on people when consumed. Alcohology mainly contains slow pounding industrial music in the vein all too familiar to all Deutsch Nepal fanatics, as last heard on the previous album ‘Amygdala’: Swirling mirrors of looped sounds loosely glued together with pounding or haunting beats, supported by simple melodic input. The dystopian vocals present a surrealistic scenario built up inside your head while listening. The album opener can be seen as a praise to the misery of a meaningless life, only ‘sweetened’ by boredom, violence and a lot of alcohol… ‘To the Earth’s bombastic description of celestial visions must strike one under intoxication … “and falling asleep outside the liquor store one day“ together with a hungry Python. The thoughtful statements of the gain and dangers of the consumption of alcohol continues as a theme all through the album and ends with a re-recording of ‘Erosion’ from the album with the same title (1999) where the fluids have a major impact not only on the human body but also on Mother Earth itself…. Despite frequent appearances on stage (alone or together with others in different constellations), releases from Deutsch Nepal are a rare ‘event’ so don’t miss this chance for some fresh Deutsch Nepal, released on Lina Baby Doll’s own label Entartete Musikk.

Lux Atenea News nº11.529: ADVANCED ART "ARCHIVE" 2CD.


RARE MATERIAL, DEMOS, OUTTAKES, AND MORE FROM FINLAND! ON DOUBLE CD. The legendary Finnish project Advanced Art has definitely entered with all the honors in the prestigious retro Electro / EBM / Industrial firmament, commemorating its thirtieth anniversary of foundation by this unmissable double album. Archive is a realization of fundamental importance for all the alternative record collectors: it contains an extraordinary historical fragment of the European electronic sound, now condensed in a long succession of songs, including rarities and live-tracks which any fan of this band will be proud of possess. Catchy vocal calligraphism, melodies and atmospheres electronically obscure, pulsing drum-programming always interacting with the most compelling danceability, they are the prerogatives of this triumphant discographic creation that will honor the last part of the year 2015 and more. "Archive" is a concatenation of synthetic emotions, the tangible evidence of the value of one of the best bands into the technological oldschool music scene, an album that summarizes years of glory, avant-gardism and true talent. The dual function of this great album is mainly to commemorate the unique style and the uniqueness of Advanced Art, but also to spread their repertoire to the new generation of electro-listeners, still continuing with them the authentic tradition of a sound that never fade. One thing is unmistakably clear: we are dealing with a masterpiece!

H. P. LOVECRAFT “EN LAS MONTAÑAS DE LA LOCURA” ILUSTRADO POR ENRIQUE BRECCIA.

Desde el año 1999 difundiendo la cultura literaria más selecta (Clásica, Medieval, Romanticismo, Decadentismo, Simbolismo, Surrealismo, Ciencia-Ficción, Misterio y Terror, Esoterismo, Mística, Religión, Filosofía, Poesía, Historia, Ciencia, Arte, Sociología, Tecnología, Empresa…) a través de la REVISTA CULTURAL ATIS&NYD (1999 - 2002), SHADOW’S GARDEN WEBZINE (2004 - 2005) y LUX ATENEA WEBZINE (desde 2006 hasta la actualidad).


Quiero dar las gracias a la editorial LIBROS DEL ZORRO ROJO por su cortesía con LUX ATENEA WEBZINE al enviarme este promocional.

Publicado por:   LIBROS DEL ZORRO ROJO
ISBN:  978-84-943284-0-4
Edición:  Enero 2015 (PRIMERA EDICIÓN)
Páginas:  164

Cumpliéndose este 2015 el 125 aniversario del nacimiento de H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), la notoria editorial LIBROS DEL ZORRO ROJO ha publicado la impactante novela “En las montañas de la locura”, obra que ha contado con la colaboración gráfica del ilustrador argentino Enrique Breccia. Escrita en 1931, “En las montañas de la locura” cuenta en primera persona cómo nuestro protagonista, geólogo por la Universidad de Miskatonic,   junto con un grupo de profesores de la misma institución, emprende una expedición financiada por la Fundación Nathaniel Derby Pickman con el objetivo de viajar hasta la Antártida y obtener muestras de roca y suelo de diversas partes del continente. A pesar del hostil entorno por las inclemencias meteorológicas, las expectativas en cuanto a descubrimientos por parte de la  avanzadilla de la expedición pronto se verán desbordadas cuando las primeras muestras orgánicas de naturaleza desconocida comiencen a analizarse, desatando la eterna lucha entre la búsqueda de la lógica dentro del caos, y entre lo racional como antítesis del miedo a lo ignoto. Una travesía relatada por Lovecraft de forma meticulosa con un estilo de narración parecido a un cuaderno de viaje, documentando cada aspecto significativo con detalladas descripciones. De esta forma, la inmersión en la historia por parte del lector de Lux Atenea Webzine es un crescendo partiendo de la búsqueda de conocimiento como eje central de la trama, y poco a poco la cosmogonía típica de Lovecraft hará acto de presencia aportando pequeñas muestras de fantasía (Necronomicón), con el fin de fusionar realidad con ficción y dar solidez a una historia donde el horror, la sorpresa, lo desconocido o la locura serán el eje principal. Uno de los mayores atractivos que tiene “En las montañas de la locura” es la concisa y cuidadosa explicación que nos aporta Lovecraft sobre los mitos primitivos y ciertas entidades no terrestres que engloban el universo lovecraftiano, haciendo más comprensible la lectura del relato, pero nunca alejándose de la narración principal. Como curiosidad a destacar dentro del libro “En las montañas de la locura”, está la inclusión de ciertas referencias fácilmente reconocibles por nuestros cultos lectores, como es el caso del explorador anglo-irlandés Ernest Henry Shackleton (ensayo ya reseñado en Lux Atenea Webzine), del maestro de la literatura Edgar Allan Poe (en referencia a su obra “Narración de Arthur Gordon Pym” ya reseñada en Lux Atenea Webzine) o del ilustre artista ruso Nicholas Roerich.


En la parte visual, Enrique Breccia completa esta obra con un estilo de ilustración muy detallista, jugando con la perspectiva y llegando a utilizar ligeras pinceladas simbólicas. Una talentosa representación que, unida a la excelente calidad del papel escogido por LIBROS DEL ZORRO ROJO para la publicación de esta edición, hace que el particular brillo que poseen estas páginas acentúen los colores plasmados por Breccia, consiguiendo una mayor fuerza en las tonalidades además de transmitir movimiento. Dentro de estos colores, destacaría el uso del blanco para matizar ciertas partes de las láminas, sin menospreciar la parte orgánica que se vuelve muy visceral con el entramado de músculos y huesos que, sin ninguna censura por parte del artista, no hace más que recalcar el horror en el que nos estamos adentrando. Otro gran acierto ha sido también el cuaderno de campo que nos aporta una de las primeras impresiones orgánicas que se pueden contemplar, y que hace más comprensible la inmersión en esta historia. “En Las Montañas De La Locura”, ahora que entramos en fechas invernales, esta es una reveladora obra que no dejará indiferente a aquellos que decidan dejarse envolver por la fascinante imaginación de Lovecraft, y por el refinado estilo en la ilustración de Breccia.

Quiero dar las gracias a PARADOX ETHEREAL MAGAZINE por su cortesía, y muy especialmente a Lory Fayer y Mary Vareli.

Publicado por:   PARADOX ETHEREAL MAGAZINE
Edición:  Diciembre 2015- Febrero 2016
Páginas:  133

Gracias a la excelente labor informativa que viene desarrollando la directora y analista cultural Mary Vareli en la prestigiosa revista Paradox Ethereal Magazine, llegamos a la recta final de este año 2015 estimulados intelectualmente con los iridiscentes aires artísticos que irradian las ciento treinta y tres páginas que vertebran la décima edición de esta aristocrática revista. Recientemente publicada, ya se encuentra oficialmente disponible a través de la página web oficial de Paradox Ethereal Magazine en libre descarga, por lo que nuestros bibliófilos lectores podrán disfrutar de esta revista de auténtico lujo para las personas que amamos y nos apasionamos con la cultura underground en sus diferentes representaciones artísticas. Si además añadimos el extraordinario álbum recopilatorio “SNOWFLAKES IV” en esta décima edición, el círculo cultural queda dimensionado en su máxima expresión para los melómanos afines a las corrientes musicales neofolk, ethereal, neoclásica… Retornando a la atenta lectura de Paradox Ethereal Magazine, comenzaremos este nuevo número con el interesante editorial escrito por su directora en torno a la melancolía, temática íntimamente unida al Romanticismo decimonónico, convirtiéndose en la antesala de la interesante entrevista realizada al prestigioso fotógrafo inglés Daniel Moncur Sime por Mary Vareli, incluyendo una amplia muestra de su labor fotográfica en estas dieciocho páginas. A continuación, la inquietante estética caracterizada por la distorsión de las formas engrandecerá visualmente la profunda entrevista realizada a su creador, el fotógrafo italiano Eugenio Sinatra, llevándonos directamente al completísimo artículo escrito por Mary Vareli sobre la ilustre artista inglesa de la fotografía Julia Margaret Cameron (1815 - 1879) que desarrolló toda su magna obra durante el siglo XIX, haciendo hincapié en el retrato caracterizado por la sobriedad, la languidez, la alegoría y la solemnidad bajo la influencia conceptual de la corriente prerrafaelita. ¡¡¡Impresionante trabajo!!! Recordamos a nuestros lectores que, desde el 28 de noviembre de 2015 al 21 de febrero de 2016, en la ciudad de Londres se exhibirá la colosal obra de Julia Margaret Cameron en el Victoria and Albert Museum en un evento cultural imperdible acertadamente indicado en esta edición de la revista. Posteriormente, Mary Vareli prolongará históricamente el protagonismo cultural de esa centuria hasta principios del siglo XX a través de la cautivadora obra artística del pintor e ilustrador victoriano Frank Dicksee (1853 - 1928) en un nuevo artículo, quedando cerrado el apartado ARS LONGA con el artículo escrito por Tania Santou cuya lectura nos sumergirá en el gótico mundo del ilustrador estadounidense Edward Gorey (1925 - 2000) de siniestra estética. Adentrándonos en ARS AETERNAL, serán los orígenes del caduceo los que quedarán revelados en su trasfondo histórico y en su simbolismo sagrado, para luego quedar embrujados con el mundo feérico de otro genio como William Butler Yeats. Vertebrando el apartado RERUM PRIMORDIA aparecerán dos interesantes relatos cortos como “The Man Who Wouldn’t Die” (BJ Neblett) y “Hands” (K. J. McPike), dando paso a las instantáneas del doctor Panagiotis Dallas que, inspiradas en tierras niponas, protagonizan el apartado SPIRITUS MUNDI. Posteriormente, dentro del arte musical, quedarán impresionados con las interesantes entrevistas realizadas por Lory Fayer a grupos y músicos de renombre como Irfan, Hesperos y Verney 1826, y Mary Vareli a Catacombs Of Doom. Completan este apartado el recopilatorio anteriormente mencionado de At Sea Compilations, el programa de radio oficial de Paradox Ethereal Magazine, y la interesante selección de reseñas musicales. Finalmente, tras la sección AL LIBITUM dedicada al Séptimo Arte con ochenta y una películas como protagonistas, en AD ABSURDO, en “Once Upon A Time” será el artículo de Robertta Sparrow sobre macabros retratos victorianos el encargado de clausurar esta extraordinaria edición presentada por Paradox Ethereal Magazine sin que haya lucro o beneficio económico alguno con sus publicaciones. Pasión por la Cultura impulsada por el deseo de transmitir conocimiento a sus lectores, y huyendo completamente de intereses económicos u otros condicionantes que puedan alterar la difusión cultural libre, sincera y honesta. “Paradox Ethereal Magazine issue 10”, la nueva delicatessen cultural en libre descarga de esta excelsa revista única en Europa. ¡¡¡Disfrútenlo!!!
