Vo)))id + Catacombs Of Doom - Blood Ritual

This was also new for me. I traded this album for some of my own stuff, without actually knowing if I'd like tehse two artists or not. That's sometimes the way to get to know some of your favourite bands/projects, and guess what, I loved it.
First of all, the packaging is awesome. Like everything else from Toxic Industries, it's like opening a birthday present when receiving the package you ordered. This time the album came in a folded strong textured paper, covered in red candle drippings. It absolutely adds to the momentum of the album.
It starts of with Vo)))id's side, which is some classic drone-bient, low and brooding. Sometimes I thought it became a bit loud, but that's because the track i climbing to it climax, which doesn't seem so loud anymore when you pass it. Catacombs Of Doom, adding some churchbells to the mix, brings with him the same kind of ambient tonescapes, not copying Vo)))id's style, but complimenting it by giving balance to the entire thing.

1+1= a window - Black & Red

Official Sponsor of

Another 1+1 release, it seems he only releases 3" ep's, which is fine; some longer albums tend to start of sounding amazing, but then repeat the concept over and over for 40 minutes, and that's not good noise.
This however screams of horror, and that in a very good way. It shrieks like previous discography entries, but plays it with an extra eerie touch, reaching back into our memories of frightful events we blocked out ages ago.
Cover art is also pretty nice, a photograph made by the band itself.

Released: Sarutra's Music, April 2010, limited to 25.
