KRIMINAALISET METSÄNHALTIJAT

Anarkkia, Kaaos, Maailmanloppu!

(BloodLust! - B!129) CDR $10.00

A scarce recording by cult industrial noise group, Kriminaaliset Metsänhaltijat -- which barely saw the light of day when it was originally released on cassette (Triangle Records 2008). The members of this shadow group of old-school industrial acolytes originally hails from Finland and from Karelia (northwest Russia, between the Gulf of Finland and the White Sea). Kriminaaliset Metsänhaltijat claim to have built their sound on the bones of S.P.K. and Throbbing Gristle, through a prism of Japanese harsh-noise and Finnish hardcore-punk, spewing out a nihilistic nightmare of diffused synth hiss, commanding metal percussion, waves of harsh-noise, anarcho-punk attitude, and dissident power-electronics. An exciting and satisfying introduction, in preparation for Bloodlust's release of Koskemattomuus CD.

Koskemattomuus

(BloodLust! - B!138) CDR $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Bloodlust's second release by this emerging group of old-school industrial acolytes. Recorded in 2001, Koskemattomuus furthers their association with anarcho-punk with its fiercely grim, anti-war statements; their aggressive, dark, industrial noise includes segments of traditional, romantic Finnish World War II songs and impassioned battlefield vocal segments. A complex and compelling tableau that appeals to fans from the martial music, minimal synth, crusty punk, and noise.
