New music and software

New music has arrived quite suddenly and there are five cds: Bighter Death Now“May All Be Dead”. I consider this CD is one of the best of the project. Proper BDN’s grinding loops and atmosphere of perversion and abuse. One of my fave of their CDs now.
Second CD is the new Der Blutharsch’s album – “When did wonderland end?” This is CD/DVD release. Der Blutharsch sounds as usual interesting here. Keeping their proper neo-folk style and bringing new sounds and band members. I’ve seen their bass player on Allerseelen show here in Moscow. He rocks, his play is very varied, psychedelic and immersive.
Third CD is a norwegian dark ambient project Svartsinn with its new CD “Traces of Nothingness”. Well, this one has typical Cyclic Law sound. Good volumetric dark ambient in all its glory.
Fourth CD is the danish neofolk project Of the Wand & the Moon with the CD – “Lucifer”. Well this is very much like Death in June by the sound, but even calmer and simpler. Quiet songs with the guitar plus some ambientish soundscapes to flavour the atmosphere.
And the last CD is from the local label I recently made the site for. This is compilation of the several russian ambient projects which is very interesting. Some projects exists for like 10 years now. Being in the deep underground they polished their skills and this CD shows what they have achieved during this long time. Good release.

About software now: I’ve installed nice monitoring thingy on my site – slimstat. I was missing extremetracker which i ditched due to it’s sinister looking code. I didn’t want it to be in the .php files of my wordpress. So here it is, new and shiny stats for my modest site.
The second thing I’d like to mention is the RSS reader I’ve discovered recently: RSSOwl. This one is quite nice alternative of the Feeddemon which I used but ditched because it’s not free. RSSOwl has everything you need for proper RSS browsing plus it’s free and cute looking. Recommended.
