V/A - The Sound Of Sadism: An International Power Electronics Compilation
"Originally released on the noble compact disc format as a co-release between Malsonus and Crowd Control Activities. Commissioned and compiled by Jonathan Canady. Controversial when it came out and controversial now, it could not be better suited for our current end-times. the sound of sadism is part of the holy trinity of classic '90s widespread compilations alongside Cold Meat Industry's The Absolute Supper and release entertainments "The Japanese American Noise Treaty" surfacing from the depths of the underground but with an elevated presentation serving as a gateway bringing the most taboo electronic subcultures to the wider audience of extreme metal and industrial maniacs searching for "something more". Hardening over time, The Sound Of Sadism reminds to the era when power electronics was based on substance and content while the sounds manifested in a plethora of idiosyncrasies, non-musical obsessions, and personalities. Each track leaps from a different propensity for violence as "Erotic Destiny". a who's who of American and European power electronics, The Sound Of Sadism combines still obscure acts alongside legends from highlights such as artists such as Deathpile, Atrax Morgue, BLOODYMINDED and a rare appearance of vocals from Skin Crime. Features Iugula-Thor, Taint, Hydra (2), Gruntsplatter, Con-Dom, Black Leather Jesus, Sshe Retina Stimulants, Slogun, Discordance, and Stahlnetz. Deluxe foil block cover; 180 gram vinyl; edition of 250." - Hospital Productions.
After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
