Loft Party - II: Cluster


“I want to confess as best I can, but my heart is void. The void is a mirror.
I see my face and feel loathing and horror. My indifference to man has shut me out.
I live now in a world of ghosts, a prisoner in my dreams.” – The Seventh Seal 

Searching for abhorrence sounds and transcendental urban dérive.
Sleepwalking trough wasted human existence. Summoning repetitive sound patterns to preach the void of melody.
Recorded with analog synths and lo-fi equipment. 

Handmade numbered and riso printed slipcase. Brutal limited of 12 copies!
No-mastering skills and pure antipathy for high quality! DIY or DIE 

Check on Bandcamp

Brutal limited art edition of 8 pieces.

Dead Hand - ST


Dead Hand war zwischen 2008 bis 2013 aktiv (mitunter als „Samurai Tod“ und „Sunkissed“) und weilt zurzeit in einem Dämmerschlaf - während die verschiedenen Mitglieder diverse andere Projekte verfolgen (mitunter Unru, Loft Party, BWL Studium etc.). Live war die Band vor allem wegen des beharrlichen Ignorierens von Übersteuerung und peinlichen Zwischenansagen bekannt und gefürchtet.

Das sind die letzten unveröffentlichten Aufnahmen, die irgendwann vor Jahren in Leipzig unter der Federführung von Alex aufgenommen wurden. Der Sound ist irgendwo zwischen frühen chaotischen Hardcore und Powerviolence der Marke Reversal of Man, Systral, Converge oder Spazz beeinflusst. Hier und da erkennt man jedoch auch die früheren musikalischen Beeinflussungen von „Euro-90er-Screamo“ sowie vereinzelt Black Metal Elemente (Blastbeats und Dilettantismus). Gewalt, Misanthropie, Gotteslästerung und Drogenmissbrauch prägen die Texte und schreien gegen das rhythmische Brett an, welches von einem hektischen Riffritt gepeitscht wird.

Es ist ein wilder und chaotischer Nexus den Dead Hand beiwohnen. Nie war eine Band aus dem Harzvorland dunkler und angepisster. Die Kassette ist limitiert auf 20 Stück und kommt mit einem handgefertigten Slipcase sowie einem risographierten Cover daher.

Dead Hand preached the metal between 2008 and 2013. The Sound of this german band is inspired by artists like Converge, Reversal of Man, Spazz or Systral. But you will not miss your lovely black metal blastbeats and skramz shouting with naive pseudo-intellectual lyrics. Alemania was never darker and pissed! Check this!
