One day in a very noisy life (with Jay Watson of Placenta Recordings)

One of many things I love in exploring and discovering new genres, labels and artists is the variety of opinions, the untapped reservoire of sounds, melodies and (dis)harmonies – not to mention absolutely fantastic approach of people to each other. The instant and constant cameraderie is a feeling to be felt and a real thing indeed. And that’s why here in the Rubber Axe we strive to give a shout to people who deserve the appreciation.
Today, dear folks, we had Jay Watson from Placenta Recordings here and we’ve had a blast time chatting. About what? Well, see for yourself… read more

Shitnoise Bastards / Dental Work split

Shitnoise Bastards / Dental Work – split (CDr review)

Ah, the lovely sound of noise in the morning! Guys, seriously, I have to say I’ve really missed listening to music and writing reviews for the last week or so while being busy with my (now previous) employment. But a very important lesson learned – 12 hours shifts suck (they always did) and you can’t do much with such a working schedule. read more

Norfolk Trotter – Paramoudra (CD review)

I won’t say I don’t know nothing about the many underground genres, in more than 20 years I have had the opportunity to learn a lot. Sure, I don’t listen to many niche genres regularly, but at least I try to have a little knowledge about them. read more

For those of you enjoying my review of Black Sheet Servitude / Odour Sonour split CD – I have some great news for you! read more

Black Sheet Servitude / Odour Sonour – Shadows Devouring Shadows (CD review)

I have this nice split CD in my possession for some time now, but it has eluded my proper attention, I guess one have to be in a mood to evaluate this stuff. We’re talking about power electronics, industrial noise, harsh noise wall stuff here – quite obviously a very niche genre you’re not gonna find playing on your mainstream radio station. read more

Skull Dungeon netlabel

(Note: this interview was done in the end of 2017).

Lorenzo Magni (Skull Dungeon label)From the bits and bytes (and megabytes and gigabytes….ok, you’ve got the picture) of the forgotten side of the World Wide Web hails this nice underground net-label, founded by my two good friends, Lorenzo (otherwise known as the singer of Septulchu and Enbilulugugal) and Izedis (founder of – surprise, surprise! – Enbilulugugal). And because friends support each other, I’ve decided to promote this collection of filthy, dirty, unlistenable sounds and noises to you, unexpected readers of Rubber Axe webzine.
Prepare to get dirty. Really, really dirty. You’ve been warned. read more
