Digipak, limited to 300. Old Europa Cafe, Elettronica Radicale Edizioni and Lake Shark Harsh Noise are glad to announce the 2015 re-issue of Iugula-Thor’s classic “Opera”. Originally published on tape in 1996 by Old Europa Cafe, “Opera” was a notable personal piece that blended noise and power electronics by mixing piercing high frequencies, a subtle and threatening vocal presence and classical music, buried under layers of violent harsh noise.
Alongside Dead Body Love's classic "Low-Fi Power Carnage", Iugula Thor's "Opera" is also a massive documentation of distortion concentration and a prime example of Italy's 90s penchant for samples and sources drenched in overdriven texture. This new edition is mastered by P.NG5361.BANDERA (Sshe Retina Stimulants / Sigillum S) and includes as a bonus “Cuts series”, over 20 minutes of previously unreleased material, recorded in 2007/2008 for the “Se* Cuts” sessions. The CD comes in brown digipak, featuring an extensive essay by Sam McKinlay (The Rita) and alchemical artwork by Marco Wertham.
