A new release is out now from Dutch label the тide øf тhe εnd. This time it´s with Salò Mentale, an older project lead by Anthony Blokdijk. This act started back in the late 80s, and put out several releases mostly on Cunker Records. Now it's time for a tape compilation of sorts, collecting recorded material from 1988 to 1992.
I hadn't heard about this act before, and was surprised by the originality and rawness of the recording. Minor harsh psychedelics meeting the early sound of industrial post-punk? Think a bit of Chrome, Factrix, Tuxedomoon, SPK, early Click Click and later Hunting Lodge, It's hard to describe, but good for those hardcore fans of early post punk and industrial.
I'm sure this tape will be one of the more interesting releases from 2016. Collecting all the lost and raw material on a well stocked cassette-tape, that is 80 minutes long! A great post-punk obscurity, which should be have more well known. I myself will sure have a copy of this Go it a listen!
