We've been big of fans of California's En Nihil since first coming to contact with his "Blood Dreams" album way back in 1998. It was one of the first noise CD's to come through DumpsterScore's doors before the label even existed, and still holds up as one of favorites all these years later. So it's a great honor now 16 years later to be releasing some of his work here on the label! With his side long track, En Nhil does what he does best; create an extremely dense rhythmic industrial/harsh noise atmosphere. The opening deep bass ambience give way to crushing metal abuse with layers and layers of searing noise textures masterfully added in and manipulated throughout. Like any well-oiled machine each jerking, stuttering, hissing layer does it part to contribute to the lumbering massive whole.
Regosphere strays a bit from his normal death-industrial path on side B. Instead giving a thick flowing track of harsh junk metal abuse and pulsing synths grinding away much faster than usual. Mixing acoustic and effected junk metal along with slimy synths and shifting layers of white noise, the track is a full on industrial noise assault before slowly decaying into an impenetrable death drone of crushing synths and field recordings of cicadas taken in the woods of Illinois. One of the more experimental Regosphere tracks to come out in recent memory with new details emerging on every listen.
Part of the C20 cassette series. Limited to 50 copies. Sold out.

Deep space ambient easily on the level of Oophoi, and that's no small feat. Long, luscious drone layers imparting a sense of immense vastness and depth. I'm definitely looking forward to more of Sphäre Sechs' work. christian szabo
