The sun surely is one of the natural phenomena most often revered as a god or goddess. Ancient cultures all over the world have sun gods, and later religions at least compare their gods to the sun or see the sun as one aspect of their deity. The new Conscientia Peccati album takes different perspectives and different cultures as the fundamental concept addressing the sun with neo folk, rituals, ethnic and ambient music, reflecting sun worship all over the world. The title “Confusio Solis” could be translated with “confusion of the sun”. When looking at sun cults, one finds blood sacrifice and nazi neo-occultism as well as much more peaceful approaches. Just imagine for one moment the sun really was a sentient being: how would it be able to understand all the different characteristics attributed to it? What kind of god would it be? It would be confused for sure.

Monoid – Crisis Culture

Ten years ago the last full album of Monoid has been released. Back then “Crowd Control” dealt with the rising unrest of the societies we live in. A lot has changed in these ten years, today we became used to a daily level of terror in the middle of Europe, radicalization of ideas, massive forced migration and the corrosion of political values. The result is a crisis-centric culture fueled with fear and skepticism. Industrial music is a perfect vessel to reflect this, and the new Monoid album uses this potential in many ways. Mixing all the styles the project has been known to utilize, from dark ambient soundscapes via rhythm’n’noise to experimental and strange tracks, it addresses some of the small and huge crises that had an impact to the way we perceive our world. A fitting soundtrack for disturbing times.
