Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Italy





Well, before I leave Europe, I better have one more taste of black metal from here in Italy. Or not, ha ha. 


This isn’t any wannabe satanic black metal. This is real Satan musick-sick-sick, the occult ritual prog of the mighty Jacula. Although Jacula's music was considered innovative for its time in prog circles, its dark Satanic leanings were in opposition to the other prog bands of that same era that were decidedly more psychedelic & spacey.


Jacula is the work of Milano Satanist Antonio Bartoccetti, his wife Doris Norton (also known as Fiamma Dello Spirito) computers & effects, organist Charles Tiring & medium Franz Porthenzy to round out the coven.


At times Jacula sound similar to Dario Argento’s favorite Goblin. At other times they seem closer to the music of the classic Hammer Horror films.


Their debut album In Cauda Semper Stat Venenum was released in 1969.

Massimo Di Nocera is an Italian guitarist/composer. He was born October 3, 1974 in Castellammare di Stabia, Naples, Italy. As a musician he tried many different kind of music. He started with classical music & pass through many genres until he began experimenting with electronic music. He reached a balancing point of softness & firmness through meditation. He settled into his own personal style of ‘soft wave music’. After a long period spent in the process of personal introspection & growth, he created a brand new musical project which he christened Music is Love. It is the music of love of our planet & all things that it holds. It is made in the spirit of the Nature. 


In the summer of 2010, in the Tuscany countryside, Massimo recorded 10 new songs in the style of Music is Love. He was joined by some old friends, Fulvio on bass & Soma on vocals. He experimented on two tracks with a new instrument for him, the teponaztli, a drum of Aztec origin. He has described this release as ‘a soundscape as infinite as the infinite sky, but with a bit of samba, bossa nova,& songs to sing along with’.

Sostrah Tinnitus is the solo dark ambient project of Mario Costa from Chiavari, Italy which he began in 2002. He was previously half of the band Tvmvlvs Seraphim. Like TS, ST is dark droning ambient. The music is murky & cavernous, almost completely lacking any sort of melody. Great music to play as you drift off to Dreamland.

Costa has called Dark Ambient an “exhausted mine”. He has tried to dig in unexplored areas, attempting to mine fresh gems from unheard veins. So even though his connection to the music is still there in terms of genre, his output points in a completely different direction than much of the dark ambient has travelled. His love for art house cinema, his barren orchestrations, his minimal but highly effective doses of noise, & his intelligently arranged & complexly structured compositions with many overlapping & interleaved passages have shone through his music. Sostrah Tinnitus’ music is about the contrasts between the nocturnal & the brightly illuminated, the earthly & the ethereal, the sinister & the stunningly beautiful, the epic & the concise.

Mario Costa – electronics, lo-fi tape, rainstick, shells, metal objects, & stones. Limited to 100 hand-numbered copies.

 Sostrah Tinnitus –Caravanserraglio, Blade Records wmda068, 2005.
