Quote from label: The album Wound Profile by Erik Jarl, the genius of Swedish electronics, previously released in a cassette, has now, after some processing of the record, come out as a CD in a very elegant digipack. The album consists of two record sessions: one of them (6 tracks) was recorded by Erik in 1999, while the other (one track) was recorded 18 months later. Those closely following the music of the Scandinavian master may recognise the early sound of Erik’s compositions in Wound Profile album that at certain points even remind the first IRM records. Clear-cut, abnormal, psychedelic rhythmics, its distorted, massive repetitions, analogous loops of synthetic sound generate the emotions of anxiety, morbidity and degeneration. Unlike Erik’s later music marked for its abstract structure and closer to drone style, the album Wound Profile can be characterised by emotional straightforwardness and brutality.
Quote from label: "This product is a common work of Swedish and Lithuanian industrial music scene. Two well-known artists of industrial / ambient scene decided to collaborated and recorded into this vinyl three pieces each. On the A side one can find Sweden’s TREPANERINGSRITUALEN which composed impressive dark ambient / death industrial tracks. "Culled from the same sessions as Åkallan Mímir, Trepaneringsritualen’s side of this split features a prolonged death chant in three movements. Sombre, slow-moving and ritulistic in approach, this working fits in stylistically somewhere between the previously mentioned Åkallan: Mímir and Deathward, To The Womb. ”They are different from some other releases from this project’s mastermind Thomas, as here you won’t find any metal rock touch. On the B side – Lithuanian post-mortem act BODY CARGO, which, as it is usual to this project, plays dirty and brutal lo-fi about cannibal cults of Papua New Guinea."
