unearthlytrance.bandcamp.com/

Hailing from Long Islnd/Brooklyn New York, Unearthly Trance was created in 2000 by founding members Ryan Lipynsky [Guitar and Vocals] and Jay Newman [Bass]. After releasing a debut 7” on Southern Lord Records, Darren Verni joined the fold on drums and solidified the band as the loudest and most original blackened doom power trio from Brooklyn.

Unearthly Trance released two critically acclaimed albums with Lee Dorrian’s Doom Coven Rise Above Records. In 2003, the debut “Season Of Seance, Science Of Silence” exhibited extreme bleak doom and harsh black metal vocals with the occasional flair for experiment that was mixed by Stephen O’Malley [Sunn, Kha
nate, Burning Witch]. The follow up “In The Red”, is when U.T. truly found their sonic identity. They joined forces with producer Sanford Parker in Chicago and established the sound and future Unearthly Trance to come.

In 2006, Unearthly Trance signed with Relapse Records and released their third full-length “The Trident”. This album featured a more varying degree of tempos, textures, and mood and really shows the bands strength of well crafted song writing. Once again recording with trusted engineer Sanford Parker, the band also had the opportunity to record at Steve Albini’s famous recording studio Electrical Audio.

With the intent of honing their craft and taking their sound further, 2008’s “Electrocution” shows Unearthly Trance at their most progressive and bravely traveling from yet experimenting within their harsh doom/sludge foundation. As always, Parker expertly captured the sound of the band who were at the heights of its vigor and explosiveness.

Things took on a new vibe and tone with “V” in 2010. This showed the band recording and mixing on its own with bassist Jay Newman at the helm in their home of New York City. With “V” the trio came full circle; combining the expansive leanings of “Electrocution” and “The Trident” with the sparing, brooding doom of their earliest works.

Unearthly Trance has had an extensive career of touring and playing shows with legendary and acclaimed acts such as Electric Wizard, The Melvins, High On Fire, Grief, Sunn, Pelican, Sleep, Morbid Angel, Floor, Autopsy, Ramesses, Suma and many more.

Unearthly Trance decided to call it a day June 6th 2012…

But thankfully after some well needed rest and reflection, the band has returned in 2015 to once again summon the beast ! Shortly before the return, Unearthly Trance released a 2xcd collection of vinyl only songs from the past on Throne Records fittingly titled “Ouroboros”.
Fast Forward to 2018 and the band is firing on all cylinders and have reconfirmed their existence in the physical realm with 2017’s "Stalking The Ghost". Their first and certainly not their last to Relapse Record release with Colin Marston at the helm on their home turf; Queens NY. The Trident Trio of New Yawkers still and will always create nothing but the most soul crushing doomed metal from the deepest depths and beyond, because that is all they know how to do!

BresnixCast #8 Rare Form

Outro Song - Iszoloscope "Relevance Outside Logic"

http://www.iszoloscope.net/

 

Yann Faussurier has been making music under the moniker iszoloscope since 1999, crafting pulsing, pounding soundscapes with a core of industrial, hard-core, break-core and rhythmic noise layered with intelligent and often surprising details, such as melodic percussions and carefully placed breaks, rich, orchestral textures and dark, cinematic distortions.  Experimental in nature and charged with energy, the music evokes a darkness, tension and atmosphere which immediately carries the listener away on an immersive, complex journey of introspection. 

 

Founded as a collaboration in 1999, iszoloscope became Faussurier’s solo project in 2001.  Since then, the project has amassed an impressive oeuvre: 7 full-length albums on European labels Ant-Zen and Spectre, 8 successful tours in Europe and North America, several EPs and collaborations, a long list of remixes and compilations, and appearances at shows and festivals around the world, including a regular spot on the lineup at Germany’s Maschinenfest. In recent years, iszoloscope's live and studio lineup has also included Shane Whitbread, Guillaume Nadon and Frédéric Scarfone.

Controlled Bleeding is an experimental music group based in Long Island, New York. The group was founded by Paul Lemos, the group's only consistent member. Most of Controlled Bleeding's released recordings feature two main collaborators, Chris Moriarty and vocalist Joe Papa, who both passed away in the late 2000s.

Since their first full-length release, Knees and Bones, in 1983, Controlled Bleeding have released a number of albums spanning several different genres, many of which were released on notable independent labels. Their cross-genre approach combined with the out-of-print status of many of the group's early releases is reminiscent of the work of other experimental groups of the 80s and 90s such as Coil and Swans. But Bleeding continues today, creating strange new works, perhaps the most challenging of their long career.

In 2016 the group signed with Toronto-based Artoffact Records to reissue their extensive discography, as well as to release their first all-new studio album in over 10 years, Larva Lumps & Baby Bumps. The release received praise from Pitchfork, the Wall Street Journal, Outburn Magazine, Decibel Magazine, and many other reputable media outlets.

Following 2016’s much-lauded Larva Lumps & Baby Bumps, Controlled Bleeding returns now with Carving Songs, a massive remix album totaling 20 tracks, including a 21st track, TROD, a brand new Controlled Bleeding composition which founder Paul Lemos referred to as “a really a major piece for us… a VERY dark song.” 
 
The hand-picked cast of remixers includes Japanese noise-guru MerzbowJustin K. Broadrick from industrial-metal act Godflesh(not to mention Jesu), as well as MonolakeRamlehChild Bite, and many others. Even notorious experimental guitarist (and current Lydia Lunch Retrovirus member) Weasel Walter makes an appearance. 
 
The remixes range from straight up power noise, to post-black metal, to industrial-influenced beats, and are as varied as Controlled Bleeding itself, a project known for being impossible to classify. An essential release in the long, storied history of one of America’s foremost experimenters. 

 

BresnixCast #2 Paul Metzger

 

 

In the second episode of the show I had a very interesting and quite philosophical conversation with Paul Metzger.

our musical impulses, finding new organic sounds and much more.
