"Musical provocation has been Anaal Nathrakhs' formula for eleven albums now – and yet it continues to sit like a laughing boil on the erect ego of human insanity, lonely and unmolested in the absurd."
- Metal Hammer
Bradung is World Noise.
Inspired by a Dutch fish delicacy, artists Midgaars (Lugubrum) and Blitzer (Urfaust) join forces combining decades of experience in making genre pushing extreme music and visual arts.
The audial equivalent of a Kapsalon (a savory multi ethnic dish from Rotterdam), this is music you never thought you’d hear and probably don’t necessarily wish to hear again.
That’s why these master blenders of every possible sound made on planet Earth never serve the same dish twice.
Good food fraternizes.
Unite in amazement!

Over the years, the band has collaborated with a diverse range of artists, June-Alison Gibbons, Shirley Collins, Nick Cave, Marc Almond, John Balance of Coil, and many others.

"In short they're one of the most challenging groups of the modern world, with songs and albums densely littered with provocative allusions and secrets."
- The Quietus, UK.

“With an absence of voice and conventional musical instrumentation, it’s to polymeters and polyrhythms I turn to provide the overwhelming intellectual and physical stimulation I crave."
- William Bennett interview, Decibel Magazine.

"They’re the heaviest band on Earth. They’re from Dorset, of all places, and the rumble they come out with could shake the fucking planet apart."
The enduring power of the Wizard comes not from an indomitable spirit and heroic determination to push through and succeed a la Ronnie James Dio or Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, but from being Electric Wizard. Even now, there is in a way a similar underground, word-of-mouth quality to them as there was in the day. You have to know. And when you do, it’s almost impossible to turn away. And Electric Wizard does indeed encompass, as my mind conjured up as a teenager, an entire world. The impact they’ve had on doom and the metal underground can’t really be expressed as an either or a thing. It’s like saying you’re a fan of sunlight, or breathing oxygen, or Black Sabbath.
How many bands are there trying to match the horrible, bloody-knuckled fuzz of Come, My Fanatics . . . or Dopethrone? And how many, for all their searching for ancient amps and pedals, manage to? How many obscure and forgotten 60s and 70s horror and exploitation movies are the underground now conversant with? How much biker iconography and occult art has become part of the fabric of doom?

"One of the few current industrial collectives (or the only?) that follows in the tradition of the early avant-garde while expanding further into chemical ambience delivered with the neutrality of a doomed soldier's field side doctor."

"Kinetically knifed to his every utterance, the dark majesty of “Christmas with the Channellers” is incredible, all curling forebode and weeping sinew sweeping up those flame-licked words, then I lose all review objectivity to the Moroccan kicked energy of “Crow At Play”, Satan’s crisp whisper scarred in sawing fiddle and scalloped gallop. The heart-felt noir of “The Sex Of Stars” grabs me back as it descends into pleas of “Will I ever see you again?” “will I will I?” phantomed away in doubt. Tibet shaking his head in refusal as real-time vocals chase the distant-cast echoes. Recurring glimmers of letting go, quaffed in howled tapers, sending a cascade of goose bumps over my skin."
- Michael Rodham-Heaps, Freq Magazine
He walked into the turbulent super market. There were people everywhere. His eyes swept over the shelves and stabilised on a large stack of Pepsi-Colas. He could almost experience the cool fizzy liquid descending his parched throat…
“I’ll have them in bulk please.”
So begins this legendary lost novel, in which fourteen-year-old Preston Wildey-King must choose between his all-consuming passion for Pepsi-Cola and his love for schoolmate Peggy.
Written in 1981 by June-Alison Gibbons when she was only sixteen, The Pepsi-Cola Addict is considered one of the great works of twentieth-century outsider literature. More than just a literary curiosity, this tale of a teenager whose passion for a world-famous cola drink threatens to ruin his life is the uniquely vivid expression of a young woman trying to make sense of the confusing, often brutal, world in which she found herself.
Originally published by a vanity press who took £500 from its young author and gave her only a single book in return, it’s thought that fewer than ten original copies still exist.
Shortly after its publication, June-Alison and her sister Jennifer would become infamous as “The Silent Twins” and find themselves cruelly incarcerated for over a decade in Broadmoor psychiatric hospital.

Lussuria's music is characterized by its haunting atmosphere, combining distorted synths, field recordings, and found sounds to create an immersive sonic experience. Since its formation, Lussuria has released several acclaimed albums and collaborations with other experimental musicians.
“Reflecting the ritualistic appeal of late '70s and early '80s Italian industrial à la Cicciolina Holocaust, Sermonizer or MB, crossed with the epic claustrophobia of early material from the Cure and the decadent, voyeuristic compulsion of Pasolini flicks so enamoured by Coil, the enigmatic Lussuria has conceived nothing short of a dark ambient masterpieces for our times”

Philadelphia native and arch noise provocateur M Ax Noi Mach, aka Robert Francisco.
“M Ax Noi Mach has always been a primal endeavour,” Francisco told Noisey in an interview, “and it definitely comes from a private place. I’ve always had a fire inside of me; I’ve always had a feeling that I’ve had to release. Pure intuition. Pure rage, the animal let out of the cage.”
The shadowy Robert Francisco has been a vital artist in the US underground since the late 1990s. He has done time in the power electronics unit Angeldust as well as Veiled (with Arnau Sala of Exoteric Continent and the Anomia label.) But M Ax Noi Mach is the nexus of his poetic, visual, and sonic pursuits: his discography stretches back to 1999 and his immensely powerful live show has gained the project legendary status in electronic music circles across Europe and the US. The defining principle of M Ax Noi Mach's sound is that it has resisted easy genre categorisation, remaining a singular rock through waves of American underground culture; in it, the shattered pieces of several strategies of urban, extreme musics cohere in a way that only Francisco can envision.
Samuel’s past work resides in bleak and extreme musics yet his songs of love, loss, crisis and redemption laid cold and dormant. Today Samuel opens these intimate doorways unlocked only by conviction and invites the world to sip at his melancholic tonic, right beside him.
You might see his reflection in Scott 1,2,3,4 whilst embracing newer sounds aligned with James Blake or Nick Cave.
As a practicing Sound Artist and musician based in South London, Samuel continues reach out, hoping to embrace and communicate with all those that must channel vulnerability into a creative, indescribable place.
Self-described by drummer Edley ODowd (Psychic TV, Toilet Boys) as “a band of monsters playing broken instruments,” Scorpion Tea formed through the bonds of friendship, having survived the New York City punk and hardcore scenes together. Meshing cultural influences from Ecuador, Colombia, Eastern Europe, and Puerto Rico with their collective thirst for punk, goth, death rock, and city pop, Scorpion Tea has created a sound described by vocalist Anthony Diaz as “the phonic expression of a den of ravenous creatures.”
Fern Puma’s bass lines, dripping with dapper strength, smartly pair with songwriter and guitarist Christian Cruz’s delectable, unnerving riffs and the bold flavor of Edley’s thunderous, yet sensitive drumming while Anthony’s involute lyrical profile elicits an impending storm over a haunted forest. The resulting noise is a harmonious blend with a rich and complex profile that anyone with an ear for the heavy will enjoy.
The group’s debut album was recorded at Studio 22 in Los Angeles by Tomas Dolas (Osees) and Joo Joo (Air Bol Bol). Coming to GIVE/TAKE in 2023.

Ulver is an experimental music collective from Norway that was formed in 1993. The band's name translates to "wolves" in Norwegian, and their music is characterized by a wide-ranging and eclectic sound that draws from diverse influences such as black metal, ambient, electronic, and classical music.
Ulver's early output was heavily focused on the black metal genre, with their first two albums, "Bergtatt" (1995) and "Kveldssanger" (1996), featuring raw and atmospheric soundscapes that were emblematic of the Norwegian black metal scene. However, the band quickly began to explore new sonic territories, incorporating elements of folk, jazz, and electronic music into their sound.
Over the years, Ulver continued to push the boundaries of their music, releasing critically acclaimed albums such as "Perdition City" (2000), which fused elements of trip-hop and electronica with dark ambient soundscapes, and "Shadows of the Sun" (2007), which featured haunting, introspective compositions that drew comparisons to artists like Radiohead and Pink Floyd.
Despite the band's ever-evolving sound, Ulver has remained committed to exploring new sonic territories and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in music. Their unique approach to composition and performance has earned them a devoted fanbase and cemented their place as one of Norway's most innovative and forward-thinking musical acts.
"Ulver are cataloguing the death of our culture two decades before anyone else has noticed it's inevitable demise"
- Julian Cope
