Vatican Shadow - Luxor Necropolitics
Vatican Shadow
Luxor Necropolitics
2x10" | 2017 | EU | Original (Hospital Productions)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Dominick Fenrow’s Vatican Shadow returns with a new doublepack for his own Hospital Productions imprint following on from the recent Rubbish Of The Floodwaters 12” for Ostgut Ton. ‘Luxor Necropolitics” was once again produced by Joshua Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, and the vinyl edition also includes a super rare remix from Female of Sandwell District fame.Clocking in at almost 40 minutes, this is the most substantial Vatican Shadow release since last year’s Media In The Service of Terror LP and further develops Fernow’s creative collaboration with Eustis, who provides a much more lean and dynamic sheen to those highly atmospheric foundations. The opening, title track provides evocative exposition; this is Vatican Shadow at it’s most cinematic and unreal; before Intel War jolts with increased propulsion and bass pressure and a killer soundsystem focus deployed with precision and depth.Crown Prince Hamza is much more squashed and feral, before a new Red Headband version of More Of The Same takes the original into even more anthemic terrain; this is surely the most memorable, enduring and club focused Vatican Shadow track of all?As if to further etch it on your mind, the vinyl edition offers a final exclusive track, a reworking of More of the Same from Female, who takes the original and duffs it up, completely discarding that synth hook and instead intensifying the menace, heading down a sandwell-shaped cave that reminds us again why we have loved pretty much every Female production since we first heard his work almost exactly 20 years ago.
Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement - Jungle Black Magic…
Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Jungle Black Magic…
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Hospital Productions)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Released on vinyl for the time, Jungle Black Magic is the most substantial and disorientating release in the RSE vinyl series yet, clocking in at 40 minutes and deploying some of the most uncomfortably humid productions in Dominick Fernow’s arsenal.Stalking phantom apparitions and infrasonic illusions from the dankest sectors of his imagination, Fernow plays voodoo tricks on charred opener The Case Of The Male Witch From Goroka - a tropical downer underpinned by larger than life sub-bass rumblings and what sound like field recordings of youtube rainforest nightscapes rendered in abstract, digital form. The Verdict Handed Down By A Kangaroo Court furthers trance induction with a more tribal alignment of drums, before For The Next Three Days There Was An Eerie Silence In The Village ends the set with a completely bewildering alignment of synthetic sounds designed to play tricks on your senses; somewhere between a dark meditation aid and a reworked soundtrack to Predator - the vibe exceptionally heatsick and paranoid.These pieces operate in paradoxical dimensions where the calls of exotic birds convey a denseness that’s at odds with acres of negative space. It feels like standing in a deforested land at the edge of thick jungle, the effect is uncannily transportive; your mind constantly grappling with contrasting sensory triggers. How can something this ice cold also convey such suffocating heat? It makes for an incredible, pretty much unique listening experience; like 4th world ambience but in some kind of Lynchian above-the-convenience store dimension.
Ninos Du Brasil - Vida Eterna
Ninos Du Brasil
Vida Eterna
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Hospital Productions)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Nico Vascellari and Nicolò Fortuni come out to play in the dark on their 3rd and deadliest LP as Ninos Du Brasil, taking their fascinations with ritual musics - from Brazilian Afro-Latin tribal rhythms to library music and freezing Scandinavian BM - deep into the festering undergrowth of their shared, exotic aesthetic.Where the cover of their first LP for Hospital Productions, Novos Mistérios [2014], depicted a naked man covered by a leopard pelt, Marvin Gaye Chatwynd’s oil painting of a screeching Chiroptera in flight on the Vida Eterna jacket makes a strong visual allegory for NDB’s finer tuned spatial sensitivities inside, with their churning rhythms now embedded in fathoms of dread space and father shaded in layers of processed vocal chants, both punk, metal, and tribalistic.The big highlight is no doubt the closing cut, Vagalumes Piralampos, where Arto Lindsay, the legendary founder of DNA, chimes in on a stygian, moonlit jag between the eyes of bossa nova, batacuda and the sort of esoteric electronics also charted by Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement or Cienfuegos. But it only really makes sense after you’ve expended your energies along with the band thru monstrous techno shakedowns such as O veto Chama Seu Nome, the soca-like rush of Condenado Por Un Idioma Desconhecido, or found yourself lost, without coordinates, in the pitch black breakdown of No Meio Da Noite and have been hypnotised by the stalking rhythms and atmospheres of Em Que O Rio Do Mar Se Toma.The creation of this album, inspired by vampirism, was born from a collaboration between Vascellari and Fortuni with producer Rocco Rampino., whose love of dense textures and low-end bombast masterfully and cleverly couples with the bands explosive percussive charge, resulting in eight tracks that mimic sharp blades scything through a nocturnal jungle.
Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement - Green Amulet Crafts
Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Green Amulet Crafts
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Hospital Productions)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This is the second in a reissue series of Dominick Fernow’s early work as Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, casting spells from the ‘Green Amulet Crafts Supernatural Qualities’ [2011] tape onto vinyl for the first time and steadily closing the gap in your RSE collection. Something like the soundtrack to one of Ballard’s prophetic visions of sunken cities, this second RSE incursion was initially released in an edition of 63 tapes in 2011 and found Fernow dwelling in a dread-fuelled, paranoid headspace.In aesthetic, it forms an oblique inversion of Prurient’s saturated noise assaults or a sort of chopped and screwed adjunct to Vatican Shadow, perhaps best located closest to his Force Publique Congo output, but with fathoms more negative space and those full sunken subbass charges.A Slave Boy That Died An Awful Death For Not Keepng His Owner’s Horses. He Helps People Who Are Looking For Lost Things fills the A-side, pinpointing a location that could easily be an overgrown traffic island as some Nigerian mangroves in oil country, overrun by local scallies or machete wielding pirates, both scared witless, who could well be the B-side’s An Old Hag That Wears Shoes And Stomps Over People’s Stomachs At Night Making Them Breathless, as is common to local legends of Manchester’s southern edgelands and the Niger Delta.Thanks to Paul Corley’s sensitive remaster and CGB’s lacquer cut, the subbass has been perfectly translated to the vinyl for total immersion, sounding stronger, wider than the tape or digital versions ever did, and in the process rendering RSE’s magick at its most tangible.Ask many Fernow/Prurient/Vatican Shadow fiends and they’ll likely cosign - this is some of the dankest, most precious work in Fernow’s sprawling catalogue..
Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement - Fallen Leaves Green Vinyl Edition
Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Fallen Leaves Green Vinyl Edition
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Hospital Productions)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Marking six years of Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement’s cultish, elemental output, Dominick Fernow (Prurient) gives the project’s first ever release a vinyl pressing for the first time, coiling up two extended tracts of impure, unnatural gloom ranking amongst his most cherished works.When RSE was first conceived with Fallen Leaves Camouflaged Behind Tropical Flowers in 2011, the project was shrouded in a veil of mystery which left many fiends guessing to its provenance - it seemed too far reduced to be identified as Fernow’s work, but also didn’t easily resonate with anyone of Hospital Productions’ usual suspects, instead holding a unique line of stygian slow techno that sounded like some our bleakest, febrile fantasies come to life.Soon enough RSE’s creator and navigator was indeed revealed to be Fernow, and the project became regarded among his most prized golems by those in the know, not least because it was starkly defined in contrast to his myriad other pseudonyms - Vatican Shadow, Prurient, Christian Cosmos, Force Publique Congo, and so on - by dint of its perceived restraint and glowering minimalism.Perhaps because of that stringent, meditative asceticism, the hypnotic grip of RSE has remained undiminished and perhaps as strong as ever on this new vinyl edition, where the Predator heartbeat and keening tonal groans of Life Would Transform sound more pensive and narcotically effective than ever, and the the borderland industrial chug and clag of Skull Covered In Moss seems to be seated deeper into its dank gloom, emulating a location recording of a burial-by-mud in some godforsaken no-man’s-land, with lurking parakeets and mechanical birds awaiting their turn on your soon-to-be carrion.
Alberich / Lussuria - Borgia
Alberich / Lussuria
Borgia
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Hospital Productions)
19,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Following on from that hugely sought-after Green Graves issue by Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, Hospital Productions re-examine a longstanding tradition of industrial ambient music on this exceptional collaboration between two of the label’s most consistently innovative, highly absorbing producers.Originally released in a private press run of handmade tapes, the collaboration was made in person with both Alberich and Lussuria making use of Digital synths in homage to that distinctly European scene of the mid 90’s that combined hardcore Industrial textures with Ambient pulses.It’s a sound you’ll be familiar with if you’ve immersed yourself in the most unnervingly quiet sections of the last few Prurient albums, building a kind of futuristic soundscape situated somewhere between David Lynch, Kevin Drumm and a more dystopian variant of Brad Fiedel’s distinctive soundtrack to The Terminator.Alberich’s instinct for harsh propulsive rhythms is here tempered by Lussuria’s weird topography, the digital rendering adding a kind of artificial foundation quite removed from the throbbing earthiness you’d find on a hardware session. Instead, the more linear trajectory of so many dark Ambient excursions is replaced with a constantly shifting landscape, veering from an oddly displaced vocal narrative into pounded, crumbling rhythms at some points, while those sinking subbass sands keep things resolutely atmospheric for the duration.There are no concessions to that blackened aesthetic here, if you were into Green Graves or want to immerse yourself in one of the most brutally atmospheric albums you’ll hear this year, we urge you to check it out.
Prurient - Unknown Rains
Prurient
Unknown Rains
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Hospital Productions)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Utterly destructive and heart-wrenching power noise and catharsis from the don gorgon of Hospital Productions, making his first album confession since the release of the stunning Frozen Niagara Falls.Taking almost 40 minutes to spell out a litany of ills that mark up as classic, pain-saturated Prurient in contrast with the more layered, nuanced narrative and more complex production values of his last album, the set boots off with the infernal backdraft and flagellating vox of the album’s most succinct piece, Let Your Mind Free (Whip The Corpse). Sharp blasts of noise distortion conceal a forlorn Fernow vocal, like that classic Lynchian conceit of obscuring dialogue at the most crucial moment, perversely enhancing narrative through obstruction. It’s a brilliant, disturbing, opener.Sore chord progressions and those same distanced vox crushed by needling distortion fill the nine minutes of Before Rain Becomes Snow with much emotional impact; revealing a sort of disturbed and buried Shoegaze appeal that sounds like a Grouper x Prurient recording session from another dimension.However, the album’s most captivating tract comes with the gaping black holer, In The Ruins of My Brother - where the distortion dissipates to the edges, allowing vast blooming bass flares and slithering high registers to wrap around the neck with a spacious, full spectrum dominance that recalls Prurient’s Pleasure Ground classic, before Red Poppy Laughter slips back into an opiated sort of naval-gazing noise bliss.

Vilains Bonshommes
L’eternite Retrouvee
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Hospital Productions)
11,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie, Electronic / Dance
Dominick Fernow’s Hospital Productions hail the obscure, transfixing poetry and exquisite gothic pall of Vilains Bonshommes; a Rimbaud-inspired duo including members of Canada’s Contrepoison and Norwegian group, Mare.Éternité Retrouvée was first released as a cassette edition on Norway’s Fossbrenna Creations and remains the duo’s only available output. Apparently a further album was promised, yet never manifested, which only serves to heighten the mystery of this one; their lone, exceptional iteration. Stripped to the bare essentials of drum machine, analog synth and vocals rendered in acres of sepulchral space, the 3-track EP draws listeners into a flawlessly realised sphere of dark influence where minimalist, desiccated harmonies and bony rhythms are embedded against unfathomably bombed out, maximalist backdrops - what most would define as unmistakably gothic.Poised, arch and evoking a sense of clutching power from the jaws of despair, the EP speaks to life’s loneliest but formative experiences both literally, through the use of Rimbaud’s tortured poetry in the sagging heave of L’Éternité, and metaphorically, through economically authentic sound design in the dirges of Death Shines On Triumphant Days and The Ages Anew which both suspend the listener by icy hooks at the core of it all.

Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
One of Prurient’s most captivating raids on the borderlands of power noise and symphonic doom rears its furious head once again for this epic gatefold reissue on Hospital Productions, 10 years on from its original release on double tape and then as a single vinyl pressing for the legendary Load Records in 2007.Pleasure Ground stands as a key part of Prurient’s golden quadrant alongside The History Of Aids (2002), Black Vase (2005) and Cocaine Death (2008), its immolating rage renders Fernow at an early crest of his energies, consolidating the hi-pitch intensity and bile of his idols, Whitehouse, with the majestic, meditative inspirations of Black Metal and a more personalised bloodlust for unheimlich synth tones and pulsating electronic undercurrents.Its four long tracks are riven with the paradoxes that make Prurient’s music so compelling and practically a genre unto itself, meting out a sound in Earthworks / Buried in Secret that’s simultaneously nerve-gnawing yet bleakly tender, or weighing up caustic harshness with a melodic vulnerability in Apple Tree Victim that appeals far beyond the bombed-out no mans land of pure noise to intersect with the entrails of EBM in the raging but poised thunder of Military Road - one of his finest moments, bar none - and coldwave pop and fetishistic synth themes in Outdoorsman/Indestructible.If you’re willing to bite down you will find a depth of bittersweet flavour submerged beneath the tidal waves of white noise filled with nuance and vulnerability, slowly dragging you into the abyss.Ultimately though, there’s no mistaking that in the end this album is just unflinchingly fucking heavy...
Traversable Wormhole - Sublight Velocities
Traversable Wormhole
Sublight Velocities

10,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
NYC’s Adam X regains his ‘floor traction as Traversable Wormhole with a contrasting slab of pounding and rolling techno truckers for Hospital Productions.Offering his first new Traversable Wormhole productions in well over four years, it’s a far more amped X than we last heard on his sluggish, sewer-dwelling ADMX-1 album, Coherent Abstractions for L.I.E.S. in 2015.Sublight Velocities aims for the jugular up top, squaring off a bruising tattoo of militant kicks packing elephantine recoil while plasmic black drones stoically deplete the spirit, leaving us feeling like a gurning nub and the last person standing in the warehouse.The coldly hypnotic Semiclassical Gravity rolls off the bone on the B-side, accentuating the groove’s elliptical, rolling chassis with acidic subbass rubs and stepping hi-hat patterns seemingly dispersing the other side’s lactic build up and steeling the dancer for what’s to come.Proper, black-heart techno for the fiends.
Clay Rendering - Snowthorn
Clay Rendering
Snowthorn
LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Hospital Productions)
20,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Perhaps the most compelling of all the many projects started by one-time members of Wolf Eyes, Clay Rendering came to life in 2013 and have since released a trio of singles for Hospital Productions that have gained them the admiration of followers spanning both electronic and metal communities.Their material occupies unique terrain, recalling The Cure’s widescreen Disintegration-era instrumentals, cut through with a Black Metal palette and an appreciation of electronic music that imbues their production (notably assisted by Dominick Fernow) with an end-of-world quality that’s impossible to pin down. Evoking Nine Inch Nails one moment, you find yourself in a smoke-filled, strobe-lit Road House the next; bleary-eyed, head spinning, coming down.Guitar, Accordion, Piano and electronics underpin these songs, opening with the whirling death march of ‘Maps on The Floor’ and the funereal trudge of “Swallow The Century” before the grinding fuzz of “Sight From Up There” changes pace with the addition of a forlorn piano melody and Becka Diamond’s distant vocal zooming in on half-remembered songs, rendered here with hazy definition.“Fall Of The Bed” and “Memory Loses Momentum” find Clay Rendering at their most visceral and catchy; a reminder that they are first and foremost a band that write incredible songs, often submerged in fuzz and atmosphere, but here left exposed, bare, on display.And yet the title track “Snowthorn”, “River Without” and the incredible album closer “Night To Perish” edge the album from the bleak and into the sublime, turning away from the snowy landscapes their music so often evokes, instead pulling you deep into night...

Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Clay Rendering, the tortured pop project of former Wolf Eyes member Mike Connelly and his wife Tara, pledge three diverse but unmistakably gothic sacrifices to Hospital Productions in the wake of two outstanding albums and some of the most addictive EPs we’ve heard from North America’s erstwhile noise quarters.Soused in the spirits of black metal, coldwave pop and shoegaze, their new cuts reflect a black indigo spectrum of tastes with an inflamed desire for proper song structures and the kind of hooks that hearken back to teenaged thrills and what allured them to music in the first place -and it makes for perhaps their most realised set of tracks yet.With Dominick Fernow as producer and effectively acting in a 3rd band member role, they triangulate a sound that’s nostalgic for the gothic undertones of ‘80s and ‘90s darkness, getting into gear with the hearse-cruising coldwave pop rocket We Are Aware, and casting a long, northern-pointing shadow of BM toil and shoegaze anguish in Never Pass Away.Ultimately though, we reckon it’s the B-side - an instrumental cocktail of ice cold, downbeat ‘electronics that sounds like Badalamenti meets ambient Plastikman - which will get under the skin and stick with you longest...

Corking compilation of hard to find and unreleased material by Brooklyn-based metal group Sannhet - all appearing on vinyl for the first time - who debut on Hospital Productions with the explorative dynamics and wordless but lyrically emotive arrangements of Young Death. If you were feeling last year’s Clay Rendering records, or yearn for a post rock with metal gusto, not sappy cliche or neck-cricking floppy fringes, this is your lot.

Taking 33 minutes to spell out a litany of ills that mark up as classic, pain-saturated Prurient in contrast with the more layered, nuanced narrative and more complex production values of his previous album, or that glaring ambient session with Regis in the Bird’s Eye View Into A Machiavellian World of Secrecy boxset.Booting off with the infernal backdraft and flagellating vox of the album’s most succinct piece, Let Your Mind Free (Whip The Corpse), he veils sore chord progressions and distanced vox with needling distortion in the nine minutes of Before Rain Becomes Snow with a sort of post-rock/shoegaze appeal perhaps nodding to Justin Broadrick.However, the album’s most captivating tract is the gaping black holer, In The Ruins of My Brother - where the distortion dissipates to the edges, allowing vast blooming bass flares and slithering high registers to wrap around the neck with a spacious, full spectrum dominance that recalls his Pleasure Ground classic, before Red Poppy Laughter slips back into an opiated sort of naval-gazing noise bliss.So good, one for the haters.
Exoteric Continent - Referendum
Exoteric Continent
Referendum
LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Hospital Productions)
20,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Barcelona’s Exoteric Continent grounds his first ever vinyl release following cassette drops for Opal Tapes and Second Sleep. Exploring ascetic techno and electronic noise, this vinyl edition combines both his ‘Referèndum’ tape volumes on one fine slab.Something of a relative outsider in the balearic climes of his home city, Arnau Sala Saez pushes an intense, probing sound, both with his own music and via closely associated cohorts N.M.O., or Americans, Eric Frye, and Helmer, who’ve all released on his brilliant Anòmia label.With ‘Referèndum’ Exoteric Continent draws us into the awkward spaces and styles around techno and noise’s shifting, jagged borders, using drums, percussion, magnetic tape and synthesisers to outline nine atonal and enigmatic silhouettes.Ranging from the creeping slow techno misshape of ‘Percentages’ thru the sagging chamber feeling of ‘Posicions’, to the Soisong-like gamelan tones of ‘Transició’, and over to the kinky industrial swing instincts of ‘La Mirada Llarga’, he mixes rugged structures with stranger, keening electronics in the insectoid logic of ‘Autoritat’, and the rubbled electro-acoustic texturhythm of ‘Agrupació Civil’ to forge a fractious, unstable brace of noise techno that sits somewhere between classic Pan Sonic and his Hospital lablemate Alberich.

A heavy 30-minute session of layered drone and tormented, bass-heavy bombast from Max Gudmunson’s Virile Games project, now available on vinyl for the first time after a sold-out micro edition of cassettes in 2013.Operating somewhere between his label-mate Lussuria’s gothic ambience, the ear-bleaching concrète of Helm, and the more blown-out cinematic visions of Leyland Kirby, ‘Wounded Laurel’ oscillates between sublime and wretched with a gripping night-time narrative.
