Title: Liturgie
Format: CDR
Label: Dreamsheep
Country: Italy
Price: $13.50
"One of the most outstanding/uncompromising jazz collectives circulating right now is (without any doubt) Klangmutationen. Coming from the Eastern side of the world, they suddenly remind us of noise legends such as Masayuki Takayanagi, Kaoru Abe and Kousokuya. But you should consider them an exception because they come from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and they play organic free metal (!). Liturgie is a black ritual devoted to schizophrenia and otherworldly meditation which clocks at around 20 minutes. It is a burning candle for Shiva. For all you listeners, a final suggestion is to turn off the lights and immerse yourself into this deep black hole. CDR comes in a limited edition of 150 copies." - Dreamsheep.

Title: WeiBe Messe
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"KLANGMUTATIONEN is composed of individuals who are quite possibly the only figures within Malaysias recent history of underground experimental/avant rock music-if there even was one. The word "Klangmutationen" means "Sound Mutations" or "Sound Changes." Klangmutationen (excluding American MR. G) hail from a small town on the west coast of Malaysia called Klang. Although no Teutonic connection has ever been found to exist between the German word and the origins of the towns name, it is nevertheless a happy coincidence for the group. Sonically, Klangmutationen marries the heavier and primitive side of Krautrock with the relentless ferocity of avant-jazz-in particular the style expressed by early FMP releases and the Japanese variety as chiefly approached by the Takayanagi/Abe school. Other influential elements are the countless avant jazz/rock outfits who have surfaced throughout the decades-particularly jazz ensembles with loud electric guitars: Last Exit, New Direction Unit, the Blue Humans (and the Arthur Doyle Quartet feat. Rudolph Grey), Music Revelation Ensemble, Tony Williams Lifetime, Moderne Nordeuropaeische Dorfmusik, Blauer Hirsch, The Giancarlo Nicolai Trio, Ray Russel, Derek Baileys Arcana, Sprawl, etc..." - Holy Mountain.

Title: Schwarshagel
Format: CD
Label: Utech
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Klangmutationen are a mystery. More could be said about what their music isnt than what it is. Hailing from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the underground experimentalists pierce the veils of Eastern and Western music. Recalling early sets on FMP as well as the Takayanagi/Abe axis of Japanese free music, Schwarzhagel is the sound of a spirit falling past its own life after death, forever." - Utech
