Liar's Rosebush _ Circle the Squares [HIV.25]
» Finally, after 4 years, a new Liar's Rosebush solo release! Already very well known in the North American hard-electronics scene from his releases on Hive and Immanence, Matt Rosen, aka Liar's Rosebush brings together perhaps his most impressive work to date. Stylistically, Circle the Squares easily sidesteps classification – elements of industrial and breakcore swarm and crackle amid surprising samples and brilliant programming.
Heavy on melody and mood as well as rhythm, this is an album which unfolds in new shades of melancholy, aggression, hope and intensity with each subsequent listen. Folding electro-acoustic elements, touching atmospheric nuances, and organic, evolving soundwaves with clinically-precise rhythms and shards of noise and nearly-identifiable fragments of sound, Circle the Squares is a brilliant album, and one we are pleased to bring to the world.

Prometheus Burning _ nBoyde raRepi [HIV.26]
» One of 2006’s most impressive and well-reviewed albums was Prometheus Burning’s amazing Beyond Repair CD. On heavy rotation in clubs around the world, this album shot Prometheus Burning to the forefront of the industrial/noise scene and opened the doors for a slew of live shows and festival appearances last year. Already deep into the writing of their new album, PB return to Hive with a remix CD featuring a new track and remixes by some of the best artists in the industrial, powernoise, and broken beat scenes. Mandatory for any DJs audio arsenal, and anyone else who enjoys a good, hard, earfuck.
More than a typical remix album, nBoyde raRepi is more of a sequel or continuation of Beyond Repair - far more cohesive and album-oriented than just a collection of reinterpreted tracks, this CD takes the original onslaught of Prometheus Burning's amazing album and warps, alters, mutates and destroys the soundwaves into something even more propulsive and engaging.
