    Antzhill is producing a compilation of various dark music, we're talking , , , , et.c. The genre is less important than the feeling. So why not put the summer days when you need to escape the sunlight to good use.
    It's still early in the planning so the title of the compilation is not decided yet (perhaps you have some suggestion). The deadline will be somewhere in the beginning of August.

    The compilation will be put up for free download on Last.fm and streaming on various services (Spotify, Tidal, Rdio).

    As this is done on a zero budget/non-profit base we can't afford any lawsuits so there are some rules:
    • It must be your own music, i.e. no covers, no remixes, no mashups
    • it must be a new track or a substantial remix or at least not be available on any streaming service
    • don't use any samples or loops you are not allowed to use


    Please send us some links to a place where we can listen to your music without downloading (like Soundcloud, Bandcamp, YouTube). For the uncompressed music use wetransfer.com or any other file sharing system.

    If it by some miracle turns a profit it will be donated to Bat World Sanctuary
  • Out now: STENDECK - Folgor

    Giu 23 2015, 15:18 di synctank



    STENDECK: Folgor [TA092]

    Following a 4-year interlude since the release of his hit LP ‘Scintilla‘, renowned electronic artist Stendeck returns with his highly-anticipated 5th studio album ‘Folgor‘.

    Continuing to build on his signature sound, Stendeck once again inducts listeners with a collection of massive beat-oriented electronica complemented by epic synth scores and resounding narratives. Nostalgic pads meet with evolving rhythms and pulsing basslines giving each song a classical feel with futuristic symphonic leanings resulting in a defining contrast that is both dynamic and engaging. Enveloping atmospheres expand and retract shaping an intensity and flow to each song arrangement while birthing lavish beat structures that effortlessly maneuver amongst engrossing melodies and undeniable warmth.

    Folgor‘ offers release from the constraints of common motifs to present an expansive trip allowing the listener access to a world of formidable sounds that will resonate like an amorous memory.

    StendeckFolgor‘ is available now on CD and Digital formats and July 7th on 2xLP 180g vinyl format.

  • New releases by LEGIAC and MULTICOLOR

    Mag 20 2015, 14:27 di synctank



    Legiac: The Faex Has Decimated [TA088]

    Legiac began in 2007 with the collaboration of Don and Roel Funcken (Funckarma, Quench) and Cor Bolten (Dif:use) to create their first full length ‘Ming Feaner‘ on the Sending Orbs label. Combining intricate electronics with crisp beats and punchy melodies, ‘Mings Feaner‘ was met with open arms by intelligent dance music community.

    With previous works released on such esteemed labels such as Skam, Ad Noiseam, Arcola (Warp subsidiary), Schematic, N5MD and others, Legiac now returns with Roel Funcken and Cor Bolten helming their sophomore album ‘The Faex Has Decimated‘ on Tympanik Audio.

    The Faex Has Decimated‘ sees a combination of Boltens darker, more eerie vibes spidering through Roel’s trademark syncopated glitches, immaculate production, and warm melodic dreamscapes – as only Legiac can deliver.

    Available now on Compact Disc and Digital formats.

    MultiColor: From The Outside [TA089]

    Following his well-received debut EP ‘Cyclicity‘ in 2014, young Russian producer MultiColor immediately went to work on creating his first full-length album ‘From The Outside‘.

    Featuring eight new songs full of warm bass, crafty time signatures, bright melodies, and infectious beats, ‘From The Outside‘ projects MultiColor‘s vision that art is ultimately derived from outside influences and then converges in the creative regions of the mind.

    Accessible and inviting, ‘From The Outside‘ maintains a consistent flow throughout, embracing the listener with a cohesive blend of contrasting atmospheres and engaging beatwork. Never overpowering or invasive, ‘From The Outside‘ does manage to thoroughly engage the listener with it’s steady stream of acute rhythms, cavernous atmospheres, and expansive soundscapes.

    Nimble and balmy intelligent dance music.

    Available now on Compact Disc and Digital formats

  • Free Hearing Test

    Apr 3 2015, 4:31 di Neue_regel_

    Free Hearing Tests:
    1. http://onlinetonegenerator.com/hearingtest.html
    2. http://myhearingtest.net
    3. http://www.audiocheck.net/testtones_hearingtestaudiogram.php

    I just took the above free hearing tests for fun. I listen to music through speakers (both in home and in concerts) or through headphones since 1997 for about 1 or 2 hours per day (it's hard to exactly estimate this). I was 13 then, I am 31 now. Growing older means you also need to constantly protect your hearing from any major hearing loss, besides your natural loss at the high notes.

    In all humans, gradually the higher notes (above 19 Kiloherz) start to become inaudible. Starting at the age of 20, the normal hearing range which is 20 Herz (Hz) to 20 Kiloherz (Khz), starts shrinking for everyone and lowers to a threshold of maximum 15 Khz at the high-pitch end, on average, until age of 60. That's why old folks can't hear much the extremely high-pitch notes.

    My results:

    Test 1. http://onlinetonegenerator.com/hearingtest.html (hearing range)

    Right now, my left ear can listen to tones until 18.4 Khz. My right ear up to 17.8 Khz. Above these limits, it's all silence for me. Cats and dogs can usually hear up to 60 Khz. And bats up to 200 Khz.


    Test 2. http://myhearingtest.net (audiogram: range vs audible magnitude)

    This test measures the hearing threshold (in decibels) at 6 fixed points in the range of 250Hz until 8K (Khz). The threshold can be from -10 decibels (db) up to 80(db). Above the point of 80 db, one is considered 'technically' deaf.

    For my left ear:


    For my right ear:

    (Important: all tests are designed for each ear seperately. Not both ears simultaneously)

    Result: both of my left and right ears, seem to have identical audiograms,
    except at 500 Hz (0 db vs 5 db )

    Bass sounds: Audible above 0 or 5 decibels (db) for me.
    High sounds: Audible above 10 or more decibels for me.
    (Decibel (db) is a logarithmic scale of measuring air-pressure)

    My hearing is thankfully is still doing okay at high notes according the above hearing tests.

    Note: all tests taken through my Philips headphones.

    20 Herz = 20 wave cycles per second
    (or 1 cycle per 50 milliseconds)

  • In_zekT - Industrial-Scale Murder review 2015 industrial metal djent

    Gen 22 2015, 11:06 di fabrykamagazine

    In_zekT - Industrial-Scale Murder |self-released, single, 2015| 5/5 industrial metal djent

    After their successful release of the Artifex album in 2013, In_Zekt had come up with another idea. The newest, over 20 minutes long extended single is made up of various compositional parts. It's an avant-garde suite, which technically could be compared to those better known from classical or progressive tracks, though In_zekT's music is definitely much more 'bratty' yet disciplined than these.

    The first five minutes of the suite is built upon all-engaging dynamics. Ferocious arrangements were written for vocals, guitars, bass, drums and synths. All sounds are digitally altered however, which gives them a cybernetic-quality. The mood is aggressive, raging yet haunting and the inclusion of an EBM-like rhythm mixed with chunky guitar riffs will easily turn you into a headbanger in this pat.

    Since it's also industrial, you should expect machines - their silent or very loud sounds such as clicking, buzzing, whizzing, hissing, humming etc. are a significant ingredient of In_zekT's music. These, along with saturated, dark ambient backgrounds become welcomed breaks between more turbulent arrangements. And so, the next few minutes of the single will turn your imagination on.

    Then again, around 11th minute of the single, hell breaks loose again with uttermost intensity. Dense arrangements are expressed through a collaboration of heavy screams, digitalized drums, bass and chopped guitars. There's no place for spontaneity here, only discipline and order. Metal/djent fans will go crazy about the ultra fast tempo, atonal rhythm and violent formula which this part of Industrial-Scale Murder is made of.
    Don't be fooled though when the follow-up comes out softer, melodious and even sentimental, thus letting the heart slightly drop its heightened beat. In_zekT knows how to shock a listener with a sound, therefore you'll definitely witness it while listening what's next.

    The final portion of the single is 'the music of a vehicle', probably a bulldozer or excavator. If you enjoy environmental sounds so called 'field recordings' which are not synchronous, harmonic or pleasant for the ear, then you won't skip this part.

    Technically speaking, the sound quality, the mastering and production of Industrial-Scale Murder are all brilliant - the bass is deep, the riffs are scalpel-sharp and omnipresent industrial samples are crystal clear. The separate parts link very smoothly. Yet, the arrival of a new arrangement is usually unexpected, so this should keep your ears and brain fully attentive.

    The band members - Kjetil Ottersen (vocals, guitars, bass, synth, programming and sampling) and Peter Vindel (lead vocals, guitars, bass, synth, programming and sampling) admit to be inspired by works of Merzbow and other extreme noise-experimental artists, as well as hybrid metal bands such as Meshuggah.
    To me, fans of djent style, or the likes of Strapping Young Lad, Devin Townsend, and Fear Factory may find Industrial-Scale Murder a must-have release. In addition, there are scarcely any new genres being coined these days but with this single, In_zekT is undoubtedly stepping into something new. Should it become mainstream? This is up to you, the listeners, to make it more known through your support.
    Finally, according to the musicians, the concept of the single is based on a contemplation of events that unfolded throughout 2014 - a divide caused by conflicts between scarcely compatible societal models and civilizations.
