To celebrate Asche
's correspondent u.s. tour, ant-zen and industry 8 present 'Stonebrain' - five new and unreleased tracks by the german industrial mastermind plus amendatory remixes by Theologian
, Nin Kuji
. The listener can detect sound elements of prequel Asche
releases: distorted syncopation, well-placed insertion of cinematic samples and gloomy atmospheric complex tones. In addition, appended elements of the darker and more enigmatic side of Asche
should be emphasized.
Soundscapes ranging from classic power noise industrial up to the imminence of Aphex Twin
's early works fused with the rhythmic assaults asche is known for. The additional four remixes go with the first tracks so perfectly a blindfold tester would never recognize them as such. A stunning release, assured to stimulate mind and body. Arigato-style packaging including 2 buttons (Asche
/ant-zen) and 2 stickers (Asche
/ant-zen). The MCD is hand-numbered and limited to 500 copies.
