Symp.toms Vol. 4: Life Below 20Hz

As the dark days of Christmas draw ever closer and the beginning of a new year becomes imminent, Symp.tom decided it wanted to end 2008 with a bang. So without further ado Symp.tom presents Volume 4 of the well-known Symp.toms series: Life Below 20Hz. Where the previous 2 editions were filled with some of the hardest live sets from the industrial area of A Nightmare Outdoor, this time we return to the concept of the first chapter of the series… only this time, everything goes on overdrive!

Putting the total at 52 tracks on 2 discs, Symp.tom’s own residents Mental Wreckage and The Relic each crafted a mix out of a carefully selected collection of the darkest and filthiest “industrial” orientated hardcore tracks. Of course lots of material from the Symp.tom label itself (including new tracks by Mute., Dual Mechanism & The Relic) as well as (some new and exclusive) quality tracks from the likes of The Outside AgencyOphidianMoleculezBroken RulesRazor Edge and many… many more.

The result is 2 smashing discs both containing an uncompromised sonic assault filled with crushing kickdrums, wicked breaks, pitch dark atmospheres and a lot of distortion. The ideal soundtrack for the dark days of the winter.

Symp.tom 10: Evolve or Die

My third solo release just came from the pressing plant! I’m very proud of this release and it already has pretty good DJ support. Here’s the official press release:

“After having only participated in other projects for the last 3 years, Mental Wreckage is finally back for a new solo-release. Symp.tom 10, called “Evolve Or Die”, takes on a different direction compared to MW’s previous releases… hence the title. This will also be the first Symp.tom release with a brand new cover-design.

Salvation Within Death will destroy everything in its path, with distorted sounds and a massive kick. Secret Government is a monotone and empty track, but its pounding drive can do some pretty good damage. The Exile Returns is a chaos of messed-up and retriggering loops, accompanied by a deep kick. Recommended for the jocks who don’t fear the experimental side of the core. Neural Framework has a groovy techno-feel with nice rhytms and a solid kick. The Afterlife is an outtro, dedicated to the ones who were lost in October 2007.

This release is already having some serious DJ-support:
Peaky Pounder, The Outside Agency, DJ Daisy, Mindustries, Stormtrooper, Broken Rules, Petrochemical, Hamunaptra, Genosha All-Stars, Mental Wreckage & The Relic.”

Symp.tom 9: Angel’s Share

Symp.tom 9 by The Relic is available, including a collaboration track with me. Here’s the press release:

The Relic is back to deliver his second solo release on the Symp.tom imprint. Included in this package are:

Symp.tom 8: Poison for the Masses

Tracklist:

A1. Flatline
A2. Particle Cannon (Symp.tom Edit by Mental Wreckage)

The new Symp.tom collaboration release between The Relic and me is now available. Pressrelease:

This joint venture stands for raw, f**ked-up and mechanical beats with a slight touch of techno and noise… shaken, not stirred. If you can’t get enough of dark & alternative hardcore, you definitely have to check this one out.

Available at Mid-Town Records now!
