After a silence of more than a year, the Swiss label Agnost1k Records returns with a new release. In the past, the label frocused on industrial hardcore, but in Seminar1sts, The Agnost1k Era the palette is broadened, with space for rythmic noize, industrial techno and even IDM and ambient music with an industrial character. For this new CD album work is selected from the hardcore scene (Fiend, USA) and the industrial/rhythmic noise scene (Mono-Amine, the Netherlands), but also by well-known artists such as Iszloscope, The Relic, Sarrin Assault and newcomers like Demanufacturer and Synaptic Memories.


The thirteen compositions of Seminarists, The Agnost1k Era are noisy, loud, very rhythmic and destined for the dance floor, though you will not hear them at Tomorrowland or rave parties, because the sounds are very dark and mostly industrial and targeted at lovers of cyber goth and related types of music. We don’t fee addressed by Seminar1sts, The Agnost1k Era, but it sounds very contagious at times, though there is a certain monotony due to the many similarities between the tracks, but of course that also applies to other genres as well.

We are very impressed with the work of newcomer Demanufacturer (Volcano), the solid sound of Billy S. & AK-Industry (Mechanic Sin), the noise of Embrionyc (Just Another Noisy Loop) and the overpowering Mental Monologue by Mono-Amine. But for lovers of this kind of music, this compilation eventually contains 12 interesting contributions. We like to draw your very special attention to Closing Chapter of Billy S., a stranger on the album, but very beautiful!


Tracklisting:
1 Demanufacturer – Volcano
2 Anachronisme – Futur Dynamic
3 Billy S. & AK-Industry – Mechanic Sin
4 Fiend – Agony, Evil, Darkness
5 Desolation – Noitalosed
6 Embrionyc – Just Another Noisy Loop
7 Mono-Amine – Mental Monologue
8 Synaptic Memories – Magnetix
9 Iszoloscope – Eternal and Absolute moral Nighttime
0 Sarin Assault – The Bass
1 The Relic – The 41th Millennium
2 The Peoples Republic of Europe – Course Oblivion
3 Billy S. – Closing Chapter

Na een stilte van meer dan een jaar, komt het Zwitserse label Agnost1k Records op de proppen met een nieuwe release. De focus van het label lag in het verleden op industrial hardcore, maar met Seminar1sts, The Agnost1k Era wordt het palet verbreed en komt er ook ruimte voor rythmic noize, industrial techno en zelfs IDM en ambiente muziek met een industrieel karakter. Voor dit nieuwe cd-album is werk geselecteerd uit de hardcorescène (Fiend, USA) en uit de industriële/ritmische noisescène (Mono-Amine, Nederland), maar ook van bekende artiesten zoals Iszloscope, The Relic, Sarrin Assault en nieuwkomers zoals Demanufacturer en Synaptic Memories.

De dertien composities op Seminar1sts, The Agnost1k Era zijn noisy, luid en zeer ritmisch en bestemd voor de dansvloer, al zal je ze niet te horen krijgen op Tomorrowland of de een of andere rave party. Daarvoor klinkt het allemaal een beetje te donker en vooral te industrieel en wordt eerder gemikt op een publiek van cybergothliefhebbers en aanverwanten. We voelen ons zelf niet aangesproken door Seminar1sts, The Agnost1k Era, maar het klinkt bij momenten wel aanstekelijk, al is er ook sprake van een zekere eentonigheid wegens de vele overeenkomsten tussen de tracks, maar dat geldt uiteraard ook voor ander genres.

We zijn vooral onder de indruk van het werk van nieuwkomer Demanufacturer (Volcano), de stevige sound van Billy S. & AK-Industry (Mechanic Sin), het lawaai van Embrionyc (Just Another Noisy Loop) en het indrukwekkende Mental Monologue van Mono-Amine. Maar voor wie van het genre houdt, staan er op deze compilatie uiteindelijk 12 interessante bijdragen. We vestigen nog graag uw aandacht op het wel zeer aparte Closing Chapter van Billy S., een vreemde eend in de bijt, maar wel heel mooi!
