TESA | 10th Anniversary of Heartbeatsfromthesky

tesa.bw1

Latvian experimental metal trio Tesa is celebrating 10th anniversary of their 2008 album Heartbeatsfromthesky with vinyl re-release of the record and a special show in their hometown Riga on 13. december – exactly 10 years after the record was released. The band will play whole album in it`s entity exactly as it was 10 years ago.

Tesa mentions Heartbatsfromthesky as a gamechanger record for the band – it sets the margin of bands maturity and was a creative peak of that time and captures all bands capabilities in best possible way – huge, destructive and immersive riffs, countless layers of noisy and melodic guitars contrasting with feathery soundscapes.

After HBFTS Tesa has recorded 2 more albums – IV (2012), Ghost (2015) and has played countless shows in Latvia, Europe, Russia and also in Uganda, Africa on 2018. Tesa opened for Neurosis on their 2016 European tour.
While getting ready for anniversary Tesa has also started working on their new album with their long time companion Girts Lomix Laumans. It is too early to set the release date but the process is in mixing stage now.

Check this first dark, drone dealing, heavy-weight ambient video of „Lone Series“ right HERE via YouTube!

Biography:
After gaining fundamental experiences in several guitardriven bands for many years, Peter Wolff became a founding member of the spheric black metal band „Downfall of Gaia“. Being one of their main songwriters, he highly influenced the sound and forged it to its acclaimed mixture of raging black metal speed and athmospheric dreamlike soundscapes.

Downfall of Gaias output was received well by worldwide listeners as well as by the musicindustry. Thus, they released two Albums on one of the worlds biggest record labels for hard sounds „Metal Blade Records“ and toured every continent, including countries like the USA, Russia, Australia and Japan. After 8 years, he felt that it was time for him to head towards different sonic shores and he left the band in peace and mutual respect.

The new work of multi-instrumentalist Peter Wolff is dominated by spheric and moviescore like sounds, reducing the distorted guitar and opening up for piano, synthesizers, strings and some well placed drums. The result presents fluent and hypnotizing acoustic sculptures to the listener. Names like Max Richter, Johann Johannsson or Bohren & der Club of Gore come to your mind while enjoying Peters latest compositions though his creation has its unique flavour and leads you to musical pathes you have never walked before.

MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE: Industrial Collaboration Featuring Neurosis’ Scott Kelly And Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker To Release I See What I Became This Fall Via Neurot Recordings; Trailer Posted, Preorders Available, + US Shows With Godflesh Draw Near

There’s nothing fun here; nothing but the cold of an autopsy followed by the heat of a crematorium…

MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE, the industrial collaboration between Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker, will unleash their second chapter of sonic anxiety this fall via Neurot Recordings.

I See What I Became, the follow-up to the duo’s 2016’s critically-lauded, self-titled debut was produced by Seward Fairbury (Corrections House) and Negative Soldier, mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod etc.) with decibel manipulation by Dave French (Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, The Anunnaki), and comes swathed in the cover art of Thomas Hooper (Neurosis, Harvestman, Boris, Tombs, Doomriders).

I See What I Became will see release on CD, digital, and vinyl formats on September 28th with preorders available at THIS LOCATION.

View the album trailer, courtesy of Chariot Of Black Moth, at THIS LOCATION.

I See What I Became Track Listing:
1. Animal Coffins
2. Tomb Puncher
3. Body Ash
4. Flat Rats In The Alley
5. Thing Of Knives
6. Crooked Teeth
7. Death Cart
8. Coward Heat

As a precursor to the album’s release, MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE will play two very special shows later this month supporting industrial titans Godflesh in Chicago and New York City respectively with future MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE live abrasions, including a European tour this fall, to be announced in the weeks to come.

MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE w/ Godflesh:
8/24/2018 Metro – Chicago, IL w/ Harm’s Way, Ledge [tickets]
8/25/2018 Gramercy Theater, New York, NY w/ Tombs, Body Stuff [tickets]

It’s been three rough years since MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE sprang into existence with their startling self-titled debut, but don’t think for a second that the time was spent idle, this unit — comprised of Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and producer Sanford Parker — constructed an even more unnerving and destructive record with I See What I Became. I know; hard to believe.

Over the course of these eight bile-rich pieces, a sonic abattoir is erected, exploited, and razed. Turbulence rises and churns giving way to rhythmic machinations, lights flicker, a grand mal/guignol seizure besets a frog-headed snitch, blood collects in a stainless-steel gutter. Claustrophobic sudor that evokes all you held dear from Skinny Puppy, Foetus, Godflesh, bath tub tina, and wondering where the fuck you will sleep, provided you ever do. There’s nothing fun here; nothing but the cold of an autopsy followed by the heat of a crematorium. A sliver of galvanized bone flies from a circular saw into the toothless maw of a streetwalking Kali Yuga. Good or bad, I’m not sure what we did to deserve this. [words by Aesop Dekker]

“I started with songwriting on the dying day of a close friend (…)” Peter Wolff – Repeat LP/CD/DL out now.

Peter Release Post Bild v2

Former Downfall Of Gaia mastermind Peter Wolff releases his first solo album „Repeat“ today.
Dominated by spheric and moviescore like sounds, reducing the distorted guitar and opening up for piano, synthesizers, strings and some well-placed drums Repeat is a real personal and emotional album recorded by Peter Wolff. Peter Wolff about the album: „I started with songwriting on the dying day of a close friend and after exactly one year I stopped on the point where I was. This record describes one year of coping with bereavement, the wander around grief, abyss and solace and ends with the insight that this will repeat again and again and will never end.“

MPM announces signing of Spotlights to there Booking Roster

Spotlights Photo for Press_small

We are proud to welcome our new band Spotlights to our booking roster.

Spotlights are Brooklyn-based husband and wife Mario and Sarah Quintero: they just released their album “Seismic” early October 2017 on Ipecac reccords and we will book their first European tour for April 2018.

„Doomgaze“ ist what media used to describe the new Album. Yep, Doomgaze. You want more? Here we go:
„Doomgaze is a sound that requires a very tricky balancing act. Both styles on their own have the ability to wring a ton of emotion out of ethereal soundscapes, but without the right amount of soul behind it, doom and shoegaze can become boring much faster than the styles’ slow tempos. Brooklyn-based husband and wife duo Spotlights must be acrobats, as their Ipecac debut (and second overall) is a stunning listening experience. Mammoth, earth-shattering (get it?) riffs sit atop spine-tingling ethereal atmospheres.“
