Pure blackness 28 July 2006
By Michael S. Valle - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Fans of Lustmord know that he is the master of darkness (Heresy, The Place Where the Black Stars Hang), but this thing is just plain evil. I mean that in the best of ways. During one of the nerve-jangling tracks, you can hear a man choking to death. This CD is extremely unnerving. While I can fall asleep into the sinister darkness while listening to Black Stars, this one leaves me sweating as I anticipate my violent death. Good stuff.

I have seen the future of horror... 4 May 2006
By yorgos dalman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Can you imagine a movie that combines the `human body manipulation' of Rammstein's video clip "Mein Teil", Judas Priest's strobocopic lightning in their video "Painkiller", the black and white approach of "Pi", together with the weirdness of "Eraserhead" and "Begotten", the hellish production design of Brad Andersson's "The machinist" and the cinematic fetishism of the twin brothers Quay ("Street of Crocodiles" and "Institute Benjamenta")?

Probably not. But, believe me, there is such a movie.

It's Charlie Deaux' 18 minute tour-the-force "Zoetrope", a deranged, mindblowing, futuristic adaptation of Franz Kafka's "In the penal colony".

After a surreal opening in which we are, seemingly trapped in a void, approached by an unidentified flying object, we witness the final wanderings of a trapped, naked man, who crawls around his cell, waiting for his death sentence to be carried out. Above him, in the `upper world' there is the man, in the uniform, expressionistically gesturing, articulating his words of doom ("Let go of the tangible mass of your mind. It is only an illusion..."), and operating all kinds of seemingly purpousless tools and machinery.

Meanwhile, the clock, of which we often see its inner structures, is ticking. Time collapses. Mindgames alter, but still sore. It's a nightmarish existence of which there is no escape, the claustrophobia of the machine-filled upper world being as immens and exhausting as the claustrophobia in the large, empty prison cell.

And, to make it even worse, all this is set to the music of Brian Williams' terrifying one-man-act Lustmord, who brought us such dark ambient albums as "Herecy", "Places where the black stars hang" and the Robert Rich-collaboration "Stalker".

The CD "Zoetrope" contains considerably more music, and in the hands of Lustmord, we can be thankful for that, allthough, just like the film, it isn't a journey one would care to make out of choise- more out of some deeply rooted necessity.

awesome release by LUSTMORD 9 Nov. 2005
By Anthony Dicapua - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD is awesome, it is pure sound manipulation in case metavoid scared you off, he is back to his original sounds. This CD is awesome stuff, i also highly recommend zoetrope the DVD movie, it is a short film and it is intense, really intense, and lustmords music makes it even more so. you have to buy the CD separtae though b/c it is expanded to an hour of music, it also contian a trailer of the movie. I also want to recommned carbon/core by lustmord, this is another expansion of music that he made for the happy pencil website and it is intense, some really dark stuff.

This album combines the unforgiving, menacing and hellish feel of his classic "Heresy" with the spacious vastness of "The Place Where the Black Stars Hang" and the high end production values of "Metavoid". Although there aren't any extended, epic pieces like "Aldebaran of Hyades" or "Metastatic Resonance", the songs are Zoetrope are quite effective within their shorter durations. He created this movie as a horror soundtrack, and you can tell: this is the blackest evil ever found on a Lustmord record, which is saying a LOT.

Although this album is primarily just another expression of Lustmord's characteristic vertigo-inducing audio landscape, created using what is, for the most part, his typical sound palette, it seems here he is less concerned with being "ambient"... He's not afraid to throw in loud, violent, disorienting crashes and bursts of noise for dramatic effect. This album doesn't really do any of Lustmord's usual hypnotizing of the listener with repetitive minimalism, in fact. This could be due to its soundtrack nature. Anyway, the end result of this is that this album contains more different ideas than any Lustmord album I've heard.

Unfortunately, he sees fit to reprise his melodic style from Metavoid in the last couple tracks, and while I find his melodic material somewhat evocative, it feels underdeveloped and unoriginal compared to the other things he does. As a result, I'm not really a fan of the last couple tracks of this album, but there's enough great stuff in the rest of the album that it doesn't bother me much.

In conclusion, this is Brian Williams at the top of his game, and the shorter track lengths might make it more accessible to someone unfamiliar with Lustmord's work. Highly recommended for anyone remotely interested. 5 stars.

I think this is still available from the Soleilmoon site.

Imagine yourself being chained and led down a series of darkened stone steps to your captivity! You stumble for a quick moment as your foot encounters a crumbled section of one of the steps! You are quickly pushed ahead down into the blackness! You are shoved inside a small cell! You tumble onto the cold stone floor. Your captor slides the steel door shut; you are left alone with nothing of comfort. All is cloaked in shadow. The cold thick musty air burns with each inhalation, as it clings to your lungs! Bombarded by sounds of unseen movement and the deafening sounds of machinery, you cringe thinking about the possibilities of what awaits you in the dark!
Zoetrope is a masterpiece of sheer fear of the unknown and the cold sterile isolation of loneliness. Lustmord, most definitely the best in his field, embarks the listener into some very frightening moments of a very bleak situation! A truly fear gripping experience! You the listener have now become the imprisoned! You feel your sanity slipping away as you are forced to come to terms with the grave acquaintance of your situation!
