Artist: ALBERICH
Title: Machine Gun Nest: Cassette Works Vol. 0
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Machine Gun Nest: Cassette Works Vol. 0 is a massively crucial vinyl dispatch from the no-mans-land between noise and techno, penned by Kris Lapke aka Alberich. Scoping rare and out-of-print highlights from his extensive cache for co-conspirators Hospital Productions over the last six years, it embodies a shell-shocked and embattled spirit in eight parts ranging from water-boarded ambience to remorseless industrial rhythms and night-goggled darkwave projections. Since the earliest days of Hospital Productions, Kris Lapke has been integral to the labels audacious aesthetic, whether applying signature ceramic finish to their releases as go-to mastering engineer, or as a shadow member of Prurient and in black metal assault unit Ash Pool, both with Dominick "Vatican Shadow" Fernow. However, its arguably under the Alberich aegis which hes produced his most important work, a string of almost entirely cassette-only releases united by themes of military might, depraved distortion and cathartic despair. In a bloodied field where noise is worn like armor, Alberich has developed an almost impenetrable, aggressive defense mechanism to shield a bitter, bruised, and occasionally vulnerable soul. Its employed to invasive, visceral effect in his most brutal pieces such as the rollicking "Rumbala" and "Panerai," and tempered to make sure your wounds wont heal after the industrial battery of "Open Warfare" or the bone-splitting "Image of Progress," but its most affective when combined with bilious, scowling darkwave synth atmospheres in the shocking vista of "Gold" or the crushing pathos of "Virgins." Yet, if theres any one track that sums up the feeling of desolation, attrition and decay most vividly, its "No Mistake," where the abrasive exoskeleton is shed to reveal genuinely heart-in-mouth chords and glazed-eye pads which leave us an emotional mush every time."

Title: NATO-Uniformen
Format: Double LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"This gatefold double LP set is a redacted version of Alberichs indomitable, spirit-crushing opus, NATO-Uniformen, cut from 30 tracks in the original eight-cassette box (limited to 50 copies) to 19 tracks on this version, edited in 2014 for the Trans Industrial Assembly in NYC. Originally deployed in 2010, its bombed-out luster has become a firm favorite of everyone from Blackest Ever Blacks Kiran Sande to Endangered Species Vereker. Between the bludgeoned doom techno of "Skysweeper," the shell-strewn darkwave scenes of "Man Is Ready" and the Carpenter-esque adrenalizer, "Immortality Is No Consolation for Death," Alberich finds a very specific line through heavy electronics, synth zones, and dread techno, and holds it to the last with a shell-shocked, eviscerated aesthetic most unlike any other. Fully remastered and cut at Alchemy." - Hospital Productions.
