  • german army – general survey on growing concerns – metaphysical circuits

    out of stock

    Entering its fourth year of existence, Metaphysical Circuits finally has a German Army release for your perusal. Here, GeAr are a duo – P(eter) K(ris) and GT – wheeling and weaving minimalist cogs and cogitations; eerie synth quilts and dark-matter atmospheres; druggy dungeon dirges. Fuzzy on the surface; rewarding with deeper immersion (headphones and/or head-shop hauls?)


  • german army – yanomami – sacred phrases

    $7.00 Add to cart

    Since first establishing its elusive roots in some undetermined location in 2011, German Army has led a darkly addicting, fascinatingly consistent run of surreal dirges on some of the most revered outsider imprints in the game, including Night People, A Giant Fern, Monofonus, Skrot Up, Burka For Everybody, and Yerevan Tapes. Peter Kris, the project’s “known” bandleader, brandishes a flurry of post-industrial vignettes, tinged with dubby effects, atonal clatter, and shimmering, uncanny beauty. On ‘Yanomami,’ German Army tightens its approach to hypnotic, vaguely plunderphonic approach to its signature rhythmic sound collages. Tracks like “Serve in Aramaic,” “Tomochic Rebellion,” and “Advanced Prophecy” speak to scenes both doomed and hopeful, churning through bleak beats and flanked by distorted odds and ends. “Blue Gold Show” and “Copyist” channel some spiritual cousin to Cabaret Voltaire, Ministry, Seefeel, careening in a metallic drift of mechanical movements and blissful melodies. ‘Yanomami’ is the latest chapter in German Army’s sublimely sardonic campaign.

    out of stock

    Caustic ritual suffocation from the mysterious and prolific duo of German Army. Something unknowable, that refuses to remain unknown. Rejections of anonymity. A heaving vomiting awareness of all that has been ignored, purging innocence through sonic abuse. Twelve exhibits, twelve sets of eyes entranced by the flames.
    Forty five hand assembled copies, professionally dubbed on chrome tape. Inserts duplicated directly on individual pages of a 1962 copy of the novel The Wizard Of Linn, by A.E. Van Vogt.

  • german army – millerite masai – yerevan tapes

    out of stock

    From the dehydrated and dilapidated outskirts of San Bernardino County, German Army releases its latest sonic document, “Millerite Masai.” This exceptionally rhythmic-heavy release constructs itself with a wide palette of percussive timbres and abrasive drones. It’s from these foundations that the group extends its explorative nature toward new sounds and textures.
    “Millerite Masai” sees the deeply modulated vocals of Peter Kris replaced with found audio of disembodied voices and dialogs unknown. This departure from a lead vocal source provides listener’s with a particular focus on the construction, abstraction and destruction of the given motifs within each track. Most songs here seem to pull their primary melodies from modes that could be found in eastern end of the world, and considering this release comes courtesy of Yerevan Tapes, this Eurasian influence might be more than just coincidence.
    In fact, it might point to some of the inspiration for the heavy soundscapes that range from the desolate and deserted to the thriving and intense – perhaps pulling from the various landscapes of the Caucasus.
    Comes on jelly red tape with with photographic insert and artwork by S. Anhayt. A limited edition of 100.
