Hybryds - Mythical Music From The 21st Century
It’s always nice to finally hear material from a band/project you’ve heard mentioned in reference to other acts you like, and that brings us to the Cd in hand Hybryds Mythical Music From The 21st Century.  This was the Belgium bands first release from 1986, and it finds the project mix of ritual ambience, industrial tape loops, weird chanting, and genreal sonic unsettlement at its most primal, strange, disorienting, and surreal.
Arne Deforce & Mika Vainio - Hephaestus
Pan Sonic's Mika Vainio and cellist Arne Deforce have teamed up for an album called "Hephaestus".  On the album, one finds an often tonal yet intensely distorted and abrasive sound which I might describe as "extreme drone".  The digital grit of Vainio's guitar and the emotive, quavering whine of the distorted cello meld together in a crisp, burnt mass.
John Kannemberg - A Sound Map Art Institute of Chicago
This CDR on Hungary’s 3leaves takes us on an hour long sonic journey through the Art Institute of Chicago. And while the idea of a 60 minute sound recording of a Art Institute, museum, or any form of  exhibition may sound like it going to be rather point-less, uneventful, &  pretentious … I’m surprised/happy to say, that this is quite a compelling & interesting little trip .
Scant - Only In Dreams Do I Know Im Dead
Scant is a Richmond, VA. project that flits between Harsh noise, dense electro drone, walled-noise, and noise ambient- behind the project is Matt Boettke(also of  Sex Complex,Widow's Bath & Heartstrung). For this CDR release we get a just over half-an-hour journey into grim & bleak ambience/ANW, which has a very deep aquatic quality to it.
Tavshed - Ramt
This cdr arrives with the visually striking artwork we’ve come to expect from labels run by Julien Skrobek (Slow Death, Ink Runs Recordings…): simple and effective, yet formal, too. The release has one long track, near twenty-one minutes, of adventurous harsh noise wall making. The artist (if I’m not mistaken) is the same person behind the Velfaerd project - one part of a small group of people who’ve notably been taking chances and risks with the traditional hnw “form”. “Ramt” fits into this fringe tradition beautifully, certainly presenting a risk of sorts, but one which pays off wonderfully.
Thirdorgan/Cacophonic Joy - Untitled

Ruido Horrible presents a limited edition CD-R by a pair of international noise acts: Thirdorgan and Cacophonic Joy. For those unfamiliar, Thirdorgan is the moniker of Japanese noise artist Akihiro Shimizu and Cacophonic Joy is Rodrigo Ambriz hailing from Mexico. As best I can tell, Ambriz also runs Ruido Horrible.
