Artist: LUSSURIA
Title: American Babylon
Format: Double LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Hospital Productions present a very necessary vinyl edition for one of the most effective industrial/ambient collections in their catalog, and one of the labels most sought-after. Over the course of three cassettes (limited to just 99 copies) issued in 2012, Lussuria ("Lust" in Italian) drip-fed these eight tracks of opiated, phantasmic SM atmospheres into the musical bloodstream, duly hailed by many as one of the most crucial set of tracks released in 2012. 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 masterpiece for our times. Its a De Quincey or De Sade-like meditation on a perceived American condition that percolates far beyond its borders, matching the militant oppression of Vatican Shadow with martial pomp of opener "Keys to Unlock Paradise (Roman Showers)" and the cold-sweating tension of "Queen of Swords Reversed," while ambient interzones such as "Viper Room Vigil" and "Mondo Narcotico" relieve the suppression effectively as a loosened tourniquet. In his role as the dark interpreter, Lussuria acts as informant from the netherworld, relaying the eschatological drone vision of "Under" and the backmasked bacchanalia of "Coiled Serpent Shedding" to fanged ears on the other side, culminating with two furtive dispatches in the coruscating half-light of "Nicotine Incense Trepan Redux," and the uncannily poignant video-diary entry set to numbed pads and raging black metal noise inferno that closes American Babylon. So many attempt this sound, yet its putative pleasures remain just out of grasp to most. Not so with Lussuria. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Academy." -Hospital.

Title: Industriale Illuminato
Format: LP
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $25.00
“One of the most intriguing artists on the Hospital Productions roster, Lussuria came to prominence with the release of three tapes as part of the American Babylon series in 2012 which were eventually compiled into a double vinyl edition in 2013. His opiated atmospheres brought together the ritualistic appeal of late 70s and early 80s Italian industrial music crossed with the claustrophobia of early material from The Cure and the decadent, voyeuristic compulsion of Pasolini flicks so enamoured by Coil. Having been in the works through late 2013 and in post-production for several months since, Industriale Illuminato is in some respects the first release by Lussuria conceived as a standalone album, and is perhaps his most unique, unsettling body of work to date. Inspired by Deconstructionism and an overriding sense of anxiety, the album revolves around the dislocated narrative of album opener "Boneblack," a dense and evocative fade into shadowy realms inspired by composer Giacinto Scelsi and the enigmatic mind-tricks of Alain Resnais Last Year at Marienbad. "Petra Marina" sees Lussuria use real drum sounds alongside electronic ones for the first time, layered through with odd, foreboding drones constructed out of handmade Japanese music boxes, feedback manipulation and mangled tape loops which together sound like an industrial, shadowy counterpart to the hazy nostalgia of Boards Of Canada. "Venus in Retrograde" was inspired by and evokes the paranoid narrative of Francis Ford Coppolas The Conversation, making use of snatches of barely tangible dialogue to form an unnerving backdrop, before "Breath of Cinder" brings the first half of the album to a close with field recordings made in deepest provincial France overlaid with a detached narrative evoking that cold, abandoned landscape. The second half of the album takes us further into this airless environment, the intriguing widescreen ambience of "Eyes of the World" offset by the percussive rattling and decimated 3 pinch harmonics of "Angelshare," while "Wind Carries Soot" recalls the aggression of Mika Vainio sedated and tamed into an altogether more narcotic kind of beast, before "Art of Veins" closes the album with a mangled and inverted message -- like some kind of Satanic directive embedded for posterity.” - Hospital Productions.
