First Red Clouds release for SSR is out! Like we said, this 6 track album will be a real pleasure for the fans of the dark side of art. Unlike the other albums, this one is most intense, disturbing voyage through the time and space, minds and bodies. Drone ambient like it should be! Powerful, noisy, at some moments unpleasant.
Be sure that Red Clouds will take you on a very interesting trip.
Check it out and listen loud.
It is right time to announce new artist on SSR. The name is Red Clouds and this project can be described as dark alien space drone ambient. The ongoing journey through dark alien worlds, hostile planets strange beings lurking in shadowy atmospheres, tales of sorrow and loss deep listening and meditation ... More is yet to come, and believe me this oncoming release will be a special one for those who love drone ambient music. Until then check out Red Clouds website.
Today Splitting Sounds Records releases Lozk's album Irrational. This electronic album mixes different genres such as electronica, experimental, industrial, big beat, ambient, and drum n' bass. It has also elements and techniques used in concrete and electro-acoustic music.
The songs Twilight Run, Aquarium, and Requiem Machina were made exclusively with only one instrument each (a vertical piano, a Spanish classical guitar, and the human voice respectively). Every sound in these songs came originally from those instruments. Those sounds were processed and modified to suit the requirements of the song. The few lyrics in Irrational were inspired by Tristan Tzara's How to Make a Dadaist Poem, it is, basically, to cut out different words from a magazine or a newspaper, put them in a bag and then pick up random words from that bag. The lyrics were done with the same technique, except it was done with single syllables instead, so the lyrics have no meaning at all.
Lozk is an ambitious audiovisual project by Leonardo Suárez Jiménez (music and visuals) and Warpsichord (visuals and photography). Leonardo is a Colombian musician, producer and artist. The use of samples is very important for Lozk's compositions. Leonardo records his own samples from daily and quotidian objects, sounds from the street, animals, and musical instruments which allow Lozk to create his particular music style. Lozk won the John Leckie Award for the Innovation in Audio Production 2012.

SSR has just released a masterpiece of occult and psychedelic music for worship. This album contains seven tracks of brutal experimental electronica, that are exclusively ritualistic, worshipping both Kali Ma with secret mantras and the Germanic Wotan/Odin. Different occult tenets, especially those of Aleister Crowley, are also woven into this work. The unholy power of Shava Sadhana's music is unleashed. Check this album out! It will take you on a very dark journey.
Swami Shri Shri Kalidasha, the creator of the project Shava Sadhana, travelled to Calcutta many times on his numerous journeys to India. Calcutta, the centre of the Kali-cult, has fascinated him since childhood and he regards himself a servant of Mother Kali Ma. He also traveled to Iceland several times and while studying Icelandic and Scandinavian culture he developed an intimate bond to the old nordic Gods. Shava Sadhana is exclusively ritualistic, worshipping both Kali Ma with secret mantras and the Germanic Wotan/Odin. SSR will release his album "Burning Hell - Into The Furnace Again".
