Artist: BRONZE AGE
Title: Antiquated Futurism
Format: 12"
Label: Bed of Nails
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Dominik Fernows Bed Of Nails venture welcomes his longtime co-conspirator Kris Lapke with three tracks of haunting gothic techno produced as Bronze Age. As Bronze Age, hes conceived a murky reflection of Vatican Shadows recent exploits -- albeit lashed with a bruxist brand of Midwestern techno and Teutonic trance arrangements -- best heard on the razing techno weapon "Surviving Cultural Impedance" or the marching epic "Modal Ingenuity." "Coupling Symbols" is a majestic, militant techno sensation redolent of classic Marc Arcardipane productions and blessed with a rare, positively dystopian atmosphere." - Bed of Nails.

Artist: RAINFOREST SPIRITUAL ENSLAVEMENT
Title: Water Rose Above the Head
Format: 12"
Label: Bed of Nails
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement manifests on the Bed Of Nails compound with thrumming, sub-heavy techno and ambient incursions. "These Spirits Are Thought to Live Far Out at Sea and Are Usually Malevolent" clocks in at almost a quarter of an hour and is sunk deep with an aquatic 4/4 variant that recalls classic Chain Reaction: Porter Ricks, Vainqueur, Fluxion, albeit built within the framework of the Hospital/BoN aesthetic -- sporadic field recorded flourishes, found sounds and un-placeable percussion. "They Shoot Men with Flying Fish and Travel in Waterspouts or on Rainbows" offers a 10-minute set for the private afterhours; opening with an impossibly deep bass throb before dipping into a cornucopia of fake plastic ambience, a world where mechanical macaques and Chris Watsons weather recordings coalesce into a low-end mass thats somewhere between Kode9s Sine of the Dub and FSOLs Lifeforms -- an intriguing subversion of new age signifiers built to soundtrack a Ballard short set in a 2060 Berghain." -Bed of Nails.

Artist: SHIFTED
Title: Under a Single Banner
Format: Double LP
Label: Bed of Nails
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Gatefold double LP version. Its been a busy couple of years for the producer behind the Shifted project. On top of an extremely well-received album for the Mote Evolver label, the producer has edged further out into the fringes of electronic music under a number of aliases, taking in noise/ambient variants as Covered In Sand, as well as more distorted, technofied productions under the Alexander Lewis moniker, a sound described by the Blackest Ever Black label as "S-M techno." His new album as Shifted, Under a Single Banner, finds the producer converging these strands into a lucid re-imagining of techno, starting off from the toughened, purist templates honed down by the likes of Sandwell District and Marcel Dettmann, and stretching out into more textured, sometimes noisy, often introverted and melancholy signatures. Its a perfect fit for Bed Of Nails, a label thats given a platform for the more direct dancefloor mutations of Dominick Fernows own productions as Vatican Shadow, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, and Christian Cosmos, as well as familiar Hospital Productions affiliates such as Kris Lapke under the Bronze Age guise. Theres a rich and earthy warmth to Under a Single Banner thats perhaps at odds with the puerile fixation on all things noisy at the fringes of techno these days, but for the most part, the tension and momentum keeps the album definitively aimed at the floor without ever resting on its laurels. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy." -Bed of Nails.

Artist: VATICAN SHADOW
Title: September Cell
Format: 12"
Label: Bed of Nails
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Bed Of Nails is a new label curated by Dominick Fernow of Vatican Shadow and Prurient fame. Operating from his recently-consecrated L.A. compound, the label will focus on his reorientation towards industrial dancefloor rhythms and seductively isolated electronics. Fernow christens the label with September Cell, a four track 12" loaded with some of his most direct dancefloor assaults to date. Think hollowed industrial percussion, gloaming synths and caustic noise painting bleakly evocative visions." -Bed Of Nails.
SOLD OUT

Artist: VIOLET POISON
Title: Awakening Messiah
Format: 12"
Label: Bed of Nails
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Dominick "Vatican Shadow" Fernow presents veiled techno producer Violet Poison on his Bed Of Nails imprint with the spectral industrial gloom of Awakening Messiah. To date Violet Poison is best known as the mysterious accomplice of Shaped Noise in their Violetshaped alias -- but here he strikes solo, transmitting four cuts of steely, night-stalking cyberpunk driven by sputtering techno engines through intensely bleak synth interzones. Like Black Rain or Vatican Shadow, its a chilling exercise in transposing techno from pure dancefloor functionality into the nether realms of sonic fiction." -Bed of Nails.
