Added a lot of the previous releases to band camp, free or pay what you want. So you can now get them in lossless format now. Mostly stuff I’ve already posted as MP3s, but a 1 or 2 other releases are there too. Such as my old project, The New Low Standards, with bonus track, and the Paths Untrodden release.
Check out them out here, http://artasintent.bandcamp.com/
Any requests for older out of print PBR releases, let me know.

Here’s a raging collaboration between Werewolf Jerusalem and Remlap, both heavy hitters in the field of harsh noise obliteration. There seems to be a nonstop stream of Werewolf Jerusalem releases coming out lately, but hell, we not even close to tiring of Richard Ramirez’s blackened static drone project. And teamed up with the Canadian harsh noise outfit Remlap, they deliver another monolithic drone-noise slab that thoroughly blotted out our brains.
The disc features two tracks, each one coming in at just a little over half an hour. The first is a colossal wall of churning low end black static roar, pierced by shards of feedback every few minutes that scream out of the maelstrom. For the most part, it’s a swirling, impenetrable wall of black crunch until the last few minutes, when it suddenly goes quiet, the roar abruptly replaced by a muted, washed out distant rush of static, like the sound of far off waves crashing on a shore, slowly fading into obliveon. The second track is a murkier, more bass-heavy wall, at first almost totally stripped of higher frequencies, a boiling black ocean of sonic magma filled with garbled vokills and blasts of foul septic hiss, suddenly surging into crushing volume six minutes in, erupting into a monstrous level of sonic violence with the higher frequencies suddenly screaming through. It gets pretty fucking vicious for awhile, then descends into minimal crackle and hiss at the end.
This powerful dose of blast-trace was limited to just fifty copies and is now sold out from the label; we nabbed the last available copies, so HNW fanatics need to move quickly. The pro-pressed disc comes in a black and white Xerox cover and is housed in a 6″x9″ plastic zip lock sleeve.
Part 01 is Bore’s Dry Ice and Drillbits CDR, which was released in 2007, though work on it began over a year before that. Bore is now better known as Infirmary, and before both of these as Directbrainstimulation, aka DBS. This release started out as a split between me (as JV) and DBS. It took on many forms over a couple months. Was going to be a CD, then a tape, a collab, then shifted to just a solo Bore release. I am not sure why I pulled out of it as a split. Then there were maybe 2-3 versions of the final tracks. Even alternate artwork done by Tisbor (which I can’t find unfortunately) and a remix track from nxfxtxex. Once said and done, probably enough material from both of us for a couple releases.

Released back in 2007 on PBR, was a reworking of the “Love Is Always Love” material. Was into this concept of using the output of one recording session as the source material for the next and was also in a weird place in my head at the time, overly turned inward. The density, stark artwork, and ambiguous title, all a result of both these factors. Both the sound and mind in a degrading loop inward. Oddly enough, the setup used for this recording was the same set up used for all the Ten Arrows era material. Released side by side with the Fossils/Sleeping Police/Jake Vida split, the JV track on that being titled optimistically as “Turning Points” (available in JV collections 1) in stark opposition to APoA.

A2I #5 REMLAP-ST
Recorded last year in July and August of 2009, before The Burden is the Catalyst Part 1. Acting as the bridge between the early dense recordings (Thoughtful or Empty, LAKE SHARK HN Split, etc ) and the later more progressive spacial recordings (LIVE, TBITC P1). Ranging from lo fi saturated crunch, to metal abuse, to minimalist pops and crackles.
The A2I batch #1 are all sold out. I’ve now uploaded them here for free download for those that missed it. LAME MP3 VBR. Future A2I batches most likely to be entirely downloads.
A2I 1 IKTEKA-SPREAD HELL THROUGHOUT MY SOUL http://www.mediafire.com/?z2zglnczzrn
Very long time in the release queue, very early recordings from the project. Very reminiscent of The Rita’s Sea Wolf Leviathan. Highly recommended.
A2I 2 FLESH COFFIN-NIGHT WORK http://www.mediafire.com/?lgo2tey2j0y
Modern day HN master. One day people will realize what a genius Andreas is. Excellent contrasts of distance.
A2I 3 REMLAP-THE BURDEN IS THE CATALYST PART 1 http://www.mediafire.com/?zwvo2k0yiil
Raw filthy old school harsh noise, metal clang to saturated crumble. Highly influenced by Mo*Te, DBL, and BA KU.
