2019 resolution: stop posting releases here

01/03/2019

Long story short, I’m going to stop posting each release Arachnidiscs Recordings puts out. Why? This website/blog/wordpress was only ever meant to be a cheap (as in free) stand-in for a flashier, more professional webstore. This was back in the days before Bandcamp existed and provided you a free (almost) webstore architecture. Since if you click “purchase” on a post here, it just takes you to our Bandcamp anyways, these posts have become superfluous (especially since our analytics tell us not many of you are getting there from here anymore). Instead this website will be used for posting videos and interviews.

That said, since the last release update here, there’s been a few excellent CD and cassette releases which you will see stacked vertically in Bandcamp players below for your listening and, if you’re so moved, purchasing pleasure.

 


PYROCLASTICAL: Axis of Evil CD

26/11/2018

Axisof Evil

Limited edition CD in white digipak, numbered, hand-stamped discs, exclusive art card

Styles: EBM, industrial, IDM, avant-garde electronica, harshe techno
Sort of similar:  Various Warp Records and Wax Trax! releases. If Richard D. James did instrumental remixes of Nitzer Ebb

<<ORDER HERE>> $6.00 CAD (+ regional shipping)

This group of strangers has its origin in the electronic underground punk scene of Surabaya. Nobody knows who they are, how many they are, or what their real names are. The name of the project is Pyroclastical, and its function in this world is to blow up your mind. Pyroclastical is a mixture of raw sounds that make you think… but without any pretension to be “excessively” intellectual.

This album is a sound collage inspired by the concept of “Axis of Evil”, popular on the media during the War of Afghanistan in 2003.

It is not a political criticism, but a critique of the nominal and mainstream concepts of propaganda and capitalism. But not only in the fields of politics.

Some people trust in leaders and that’s fine, but many times we are deceived by them, because we trust on their promises… in a blind way…  and some people steal our illusions without any remorse, pointing to others as the guilty powers that caused all the mess and despair.

Each one of the tracks refers to a city in the member countries of the “Axis of Evil”.

 


FLATBED: Drug Mom (12″ EP)

26/11/2018

DRUGMOM1-inv

One-sided 12″ EP, screen printed covers, numbered edition.

Styles: Noise-rock, noisecore, punk, free-improv, instrumental speed punk
Sort of similar: The Bark Haze, KEN mode, Melt Banana without the cuteness, Skullflower but faster and with more intensity, early Swans on massive amounts of speed, Merzbow played by Big Black

<<ORDER HERE>> $10 cad (+ regional shipping)

FLATBED have been wiping Nanaimo, BC, off the face of the map for about 15 years now. They’re the bastard brainchild of a guy named Mike Thibodeau who plays a two-stringed bass, comes up with the song titles, and is the only permanent member. Past members have included guitarists Andrew MacGregor (The Bark Haze, Gown), Ken Holiday (The Crusties, Void Fill) and Jakob Rehlinger (Void Fill, Semen Priest, etc) but you don’t join FLATBED for the long haul, you join to spill bile all over the stage for 15 minutes and get the hell out, leaving behind blown eardrums and stunned faces. There’s new guys on guitar now, they’re called Shrum and Jub. On drums Lindsay (Bash Brothers, Hag Face) is the fourth lady to beat the hell out of the skins for FLATBED. Drug Mom is their sixth release.
