Filthy Communions 2005/2009

The first ever doom record on Turgid Animal reissues In And Around Newcastle, a live CDR box set (Fuckin' Amateurs, 2008) by these Northeast England masters.

Night Of The Killers Moon

(Turgid Animal - TA256) split LP $16.00

Edition of 300.

Two tracks of the dirty, pure tape manipulation and looping hell by ex-Wolf Eyes Aaron Dilloway. Full color covers (similar to the "Chain Shot" LP artwork). Edition 500

Un Tratto Di Malinconia

(Turgid Animal) CD $10.50

The band’s first industrial album proper. Familiar drones are still present — but more controlled, subtle, and psychedelic — tying together five harsh industrial tracks. Reminiscent of Whitehouse, Godflesh and more than anything else Throbbing Gristle, complete with screamed, desperate vocals and harsh, oscillating synths. Edition of 500.


Stoy = Gull

(Turgid Animal - TA382) 7-inch $8.00

Carrion Wind

(Turgid Animal - TA389) CD $10.50

This ambitious work consolidates sounds explored with F/I/T/H and Sky Burial into a single project, focusing them into a complex and meticulously composed 63-minute industrial opus, a dark and ominous dirge, both beautiful and brutal with aspects of metal percussion, dark ambient, drone, doom and industrial electronics. Noticeably absent are Page's vocals as F/I/T/H takes a more "restrained" approach that favors slow layering of synths, field recordings, guitar loops and electronics. Tension occasionally peaks at an explosive level comparable to the shorter tracks of F/I/T/H's previous releases.


Phythogenetics: Collection

(Turgid Animal - TA285) CD $10.50 (Out-of-stock)

Finnish harsh noise fiend Pekka PT's brutal mix of junk metal abuse and pedal worship sometimes results in total unflinching chaos and other times in a more structured industrial noise masterwork. Whittled down from dozens of tapes, CD and vinyl, here is 74 minutes of what Pekka considers his best work under this now-defunct moniker. Liner notes by Mikko Aspa (Grunt/, Freak Animal Records) and Pasi Markkula (Bizarre Uproar / Filth and Violence).


Death Happening

(Turgid Animal) 7-inch $7.50

Expertly done psychedelic harsh noise from Finland. "Surprisingly chaotic and [discordant]," say our colleagues at Freak Animal. "Layers of reversed sounds create demonic roaring noise, which isn't harsh, but very far from relaxing.... Other side is [typical] Haare with eerie guitar drones and lots of layers." Edition of 200.



(Turgid Animal - TA407) 7-inch $9.00

Two blackened noise mantras from North Carolina, based on the Notaricon "MI IOLH LNV HShMILH." Limited to 250 copies. Includes Horseback sticker.


Voltigeurs / Horseback

(Turgid Animal) split 10-inch $16.00

Emotionally Voided describes the Voltiguers tracks as a "hailstorm, a relentless screaming blast of freezing, scalding winds and scraped out dying melodies, a fucked-up torrent of cloudy vestige hoofing its way toward the end and catching everything in its path up in itself.... [Matthew] Bower and collaborator Samantha Davies (of Gyr/Harm) impart a wailing sort of sadness to this composition ... far distanced from the emotional hollowness of Skullflower ... making Voltigeurs a project with a much more expansive palette to draw from." Jenks Miller's Horseback, according to the same source (why not), "meld[s] ... desert-drenched emptiness with black metal's cold textures in an immensely focused way, yielding a sort of psychedelicized blackness that builds up a towering wall of unapproachability."


The Ducal Palace

(Turgid Animal - TA408) CD $12.00

A chronicle of the first ever rehearsal and recording of the core duo of Ben Jones and Hasan Gaylani. Thirty-plus minutes of raw guitar recordings from 1996, plus on the final track, the police turn up and perform their most popular track by law enforcement the word over "Cease Making That Racket." Old school experimental work out from a simpler time. Limited to 300 copies.


Kali Ensemble

Maimed Left Arm

(Turgid Animal - TA289) CD $10.00

***Reissue of classic cassette (E.F. Tapes, 1995) by Richard Ramirez and Mary A.D. Fifty minutes, two tracks, lo-fi space noise with that straight-to-tape '90s harsh noise sound. Tones shine through the haze, aliens rape abductees and moan a feedback language only they can understand. A ghastly trip through time. With both original and new artwork by Tisbor.



(Turgid Animal - TA534) CD $10.75

"Makes me feel like I've bored a hole into the center of the earth with my teeth!" says one friend close to this Starving Weirdo's alter-ego band. Self-described as "dune rock" from the deserts of Manila, California; this band is very influenced by its surroundings. Slow-motion metallic riffs ring throughout the entire fifty minutes of the debut album, laying the foundation for waves of rolling synth lines and clangs echoing in the distance, presumably a shamanic attempt at drums but too lost in a trance to muster any concrete tempo or rhythm.


Mlehst / Mutant Ape

(Turgid Animal - TA185) split 7-inch $11.35

Harsh building ambience from Mutant Ape, backed with Mlehst’s tonal experiment on the flip, really soothing.


Wooden Enclosure

(Turgid Animal - TA386) LP + CD $15.00

With a focus on the Mondo Cane side of heavy drone music and the murderous side of old school industrial noise, this full-on bass/guitar kraut-styled work out from the depths of the Sparrow Pit slowly weaves and blurs itself into an abyss, ending with a slow growl of discomfort. The CDr features two drawn out synth experiments. Grim, laser-printed artwork on blue paper loose inside a PVC sleeve with the record inside a white paper sleeve and housed in a black card outer sleeve.


What's Left

(Turgid Animal - TA353) CD $10.00

The first CD release by the Turgid Animal label's hombre del queso muy grande blurs the lines between rough harsh noise, power electronics and almost industrial soundscapes. More than fifty minutes of blown-out hatred from one of northern England's most evil. Reissues tracks from the Shift split CDr (Alfa Male Discharge), the What's Left? business card set (Dumping Ground), the No Bodies CDr (Amorf Sounds) and the Grunt split tape (Turgid Animal).


Live and Proud

(Turgid Animal - TA385) 7-inch $9.00

Pure junk noise abuse with little or no structure, although somewhat rhythmic in some places. The artwork is printed on two double sided thick glossy inserts and looks a treat. Limited edition, colored vinyl.


Mutant Ape / Seppuku

(Turgid Animal - TA197) split 7-inch $9.85

Cut-up junk abuse and pure smash all the way through Mutant Ape’s side. Scotland’s Seppuku deliver two tracks of doom-type metal. Death to false noise!


Bless The Children

Victorian Photography

(Turgid Animal - TA248) 7-inch $7.50

Daydreams of the Victorian past via highly focused synth projections over a bed of crunched static, screamed vocals, children's song echoing from the bottom of a barrel. Creepy religious themes creeping in.


Cosmic Birth

(Turgid Animal - TA331) CD $10.00

Recorded by Pete Burn and Dean Glaister in 2003 and 2004 using a variety of places, moods and instruments, Cosmic Birth as a whole flows like a river, surprisingly, with long drawn out psychedelic tones that buck under guitar motifs, and heavy, metallic bass forming the album's core. Mastered by James Plotkin.


Machines Will React

(Turgid Animal - TA294) LP $13.50

Texas noise legend delivers material by most of his better known projects, including Anal Drill, Gender Sabotage, Release Helen Rytka, SS Electronics, Crash At Every Speed, Private Mouthpiece, Werewolf Jerusalem, Last Rape, 12 Yr Old Proud Parent and The Sick Tour.

Skullflower / White Medal

(Turgid Animal - TA440) 7-inch $10.00

The long-running and evil Skullflower and Yorkshire's demented black metal one-man band both straddle the middle ground between experimental and all-out black metal assault, but in very different ways. Artwork by Utarm's Sindre Foss Skancke. 400 copies on black vinyl.


Skullflower / Utarm

(Turgid Animal) split CD $11.75

Three tracks by Matthew Bower’s pioneering noise / rock unit, two by Norwegian relative newcomer. Extreme, beautiful, dark and wandering-in-the-woods noise, operating inside an experimental, black-metal-influenced twilight zone. Inspiring triumphant soundscapes, evil tepid ambiance and deadly esoteric world music. Edition of 500


Pure Imperial Reform

(Turgid Animal - TA309) CD $10.00

Recorded 2006 live on an Antwerp radio station comes this new guitar wall "composition" from Matthew Bower and Lee Stokoe. A good harsh racket. UK import.


Eravamo Così Felici

(Turgid Animal - TA400) CD $10.00

Nicola (Fecalove) and Marco are joined by Lorenzo (Thanatologist, Nave, Entropic Degrade Behind Phylogeny) for seven tracks of decayed and wrong industrial / noise / power electronics. Brutal vocals in Italian, analogue and digital noise, various electronics, tape looping and lyrics by Mirko Sartori (a reclusive mad man who lived with the mummified corpse of his mother Anna for three years in a little town in northern Italy, in an apartment with walls covered with weird, hand-written prayers and requests of help). Pure Italian suburban depression, madness and void. Eight-page booklet with lyrics in Italian and translation in English.


Cock Pig / Unoriginal Macho Energy

(Turgid Animal - TA469) 7-inch + cassette $15.00

The third Fecalove and Torturing Nurse collaboration. Pure harsh noise, recorded in China and Italy during 2008 and 2009.

Minus The Divine

(Turgid Animal - TA406) CD $12.00

Norway's Sindre Foss Skancke follows up 2007's Mutilation Epoch with his experimental black metal and noise rolled into one well composed, exciting and bizarre-sounding album. All the best bits of Skullflower, with early industrial and other influences drawn from his country's native black metal underworld fighting for space in front of a backdrop of blackened harsh noise filth. Limited to 300 copies.


Part 4

(Turgid Animal - TA666) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)

Obsessive crackle wall worship from Richard Ramirez and Sam McKinlay. The texture, apparently a muddied variation of amplified scraping, is chunky and, due to its mid-paced nature, runs with little air between each static pop. Less distorted than the typical high-gain crunch HNW peers.


Ten Arrows

(Turgid Animal - TA388) CD $9.00

First released in a CDR edition of 17 copies, Ten Arrows gets the kind of legit reissue treatment worthy of top-quality harsh pedal noise. Both tracks from the original, along with a bonus track from vault.



(Turgid Animal - TA399) CD $12.00

Matthew Bower (Skullflower) and Samantha Davis (GYR, Harm) head toward black metal in its purest form. Davis's input certainly alters Bower's musical vision and it is easy to hear the sound of a true collaboration at work. Six long tracks of heavy music, nearly 65 minutes.


Original Warmth

(Turgid Animal - TA308) CD $10.00

Three long tracks of beautiful drone ambience by Steev Thompson (Roxanne Jean Polise) and Branden Diven (Drenches), previously released on Warmth’s self-titled LP (Arbor) and Quintana Roo split tape (Not Not Fun).


Dark Passenger

(Turgid Animal - TA365) LP $15.00
