Frozen Ocean

Smothered Bowels – Dead Cunt Dance (Bizarre Leprous Production)

It’s time to get that politically correct handbook, rip the pages out of it and wipe your bum on them. Yep these Russian grinders are about being offensive and acting like very rude and naughty school-kids so be warned if… Continue Reading →

Big Guns – Six Shooter (S/R)

Apparently this grizzled saddletramp of an EP is something lurking in the collective psyches of Goatpsalm/Frozen Ocean’s Vaarwel and ‘Postie’ who I know significantly less about, something they felt the need to saddle up and ride out on. Their Bandcamp… Continue Reading →

Goatpsalm – Downstream (Aesthetic Death)

We have not heard anything from Goatpsalm since 2012 release ‘Erset La Tari,’ a ritualistic and dark ambient exercise that took us into the crypt-like tombs of ancient civilisations. At the time we were not even privy to who these… Continue Reading →

Frozen Ocean – The Prowess Of Dormition (Apocalyptic Witchcraft)

No stranger to these pages Vaarwel has worked incredibly hard since the Russian first conceived Frozen Ocean back in 2005 and notched up a wealth of releases. You never know when to expect him or what he is going to… Continue Reading →

Kiss The Hobo – Абсолютно ненужные коннотации (S/R)

Imbecile metal / avant-garde grindcore from Russia anyone? Well you are in the right place for that here! Maybe not as prolific as the likes of Rogga Johansson or Vardan but if I had to pick a third musician who… Continue Reading →

Frozen Ocean – Prills Of Remembrance (S/R)

Back for the first time this year and I am sure not the last are Frozen Ocean, a project helmed by Vaarwel from Moscow and one that regular readers to this site will no doubt have heard of before. I… Continue Reading →

Frozen Ocean – Weighing Form (Operator Produkzion)

There is a mad scientist burning away the midnight hours in his laboratory and this could be looked at in two ways. The first is Frozen Ocean’s Vaarwel at work making strange sounds and contorting them. ‘Weighing Form’ is another… Continue Reading →

E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr – Spiralo (Svart)

Those strange boffins are back dabbling in dimensions in time and space and following up on debut album Kometenbahn from last year. As far as the time is concerned they are manipulating frequencies from around the 70’s and 80’s when… Continue Reading →

Frozen Ocean – The Dyson Swarm (Kristallblut)

So we have the first but almost certainly not the last release of the year from Russian project Frozen Ocean and as ever it’s an intriguing proposition wondering where the fertile mind of musician Vaarwel is taking us to this… Continue Reading →

Arx Atrata – Oblivion (SR)

I like the band name, it just rolls off the tongue and kind of types from the keyboard in the same fashion. As for further information there is not a fantastic amount more I can tell you as the letter… Continue Reading →

Frozen Ocean – Natt Over Meg (Obscure Abhorrence Productions)

I should have guessed that musicaholic Vaarwel was going to slip another release in before the year was out. He has been pretty prolific in 2013 with one other album an EP and a split with Petrychor. All have been… Continue Reading →

Frozen Ocean – Aokigahara (Le Crepuscule Du Soir)

In the last of these reflections on ambient experimentation, audio seismologist Vaarwel really shakes things up. The 39 minute one track album has a droning sound on a low frequency rumbling through the entire length of the piece. Does it… Continue Reading →
