Otavan Veret - Otavan Veret
If 2014 is proving to be anything it’s going to be known as the year of releases.  Ever since January 1st, it’s been an avalanche of not only new releases but debut releases too.  Add to the list Otavan Veret with their self titled album.  The band, consisting of Kaarna (of Tervahäät and Slaves Mask) and Kivelä   (also of Tervahäät,), come from the mystical magical land of Finland.  Their self titled debut is a conceptual piece dealing with the journey into the vastness of the universe.  Sectioned into 3 pieces (aptly titled I, II and III) each piece envelopes the listener on a far away expedition.
Cosmic Noise Waves / Ataraxy - Valles Marineris
This 3inch CDR box set offers up three slices of mars themed walled noise from these two German projects. I guess you could say this is some what of a sequel to last years Martian Impressions( also on Vomit Bucket Productions)…with the pair offering up a track a piece, then a collaborative track- all of which shift between HNW & ANW.
Monuments Are No Good To The Dead - Earth’s Hum, Vol. II

Being an Altar of Waste release, “Earth’s Hum, Vol. II” comes in a dvd case with smart graphics and art - the usual standard maintained. Though the artwork is perhaps more austere than most AOW albums I’ve seen, adding an element of science/mysticism to the overall package. Monuments Are No Good To The Dead offer up one long track, thirty-one and a half minutes, of fizzing Harsh Noise Wall textures.

Dead Body Collection - I Praise The Scars On Your Body
I Praise The Scars On Your Body is a C30, which offers up two prime 'n' brutal slabs of walled noise from this highly prolific Serbian based project.  The release appears on Canadian Noir Sur Noir – a Harsh Noise, HNW, Power Electronics label, and the release comes in a great pro looking & grimly arty sleeve that features black in on black card packaging.
Steve Roach - Structures From Silence-30th Anniversary 3CD Edit
Originally released in 1984, Structures From Silence was the third album from US ambient legend Steve Roach.  The album is often considered oneof Roach’s most influential, respected and celebrated albums- it conists of three lengthy tracks that are built around simplistic interlocking textural  synth patterns, which are both soothing, melodic & atmospheric. 
Serpentine Path - Emanations
NYC's Serpentine Path is, as Relapse Records calls them, a "doom super group." Consisting of members of Electric Wizard, Unearthly Trance, and Ramesses, their claim to the title is definitely warranted. However, output trumps pedigree, so does Serpentine Path have the chops to remain "super?"
