Elettronica Radicale Edizioni, Old Europa Cafe and Lake Shark Harsh Noise are glad to announce the 2015 reissue of Iugula-Thor’s classic “Opera”. Originally published on tape in 1996 by Old Europa Cafe, “Opera” was a notable personal piece that blended noise and power electronics by mixing piercing high frequencies, a subtle and threatening vocal presence and classical music, buried under layers of violent harsh noise. Alongside Dead Body Love’s classic “Low-Fi Power Carnage”, Iugula Thor’s “Opera” is also a massive documentation of distortion concentration and a prime example of Italy’s 90s penchant for samples and sources drenched in overdriven texture.
”…IUGULA-THOR displays prowess in concentrating on the source, some of the manipulations more subtle than others, building upon the expressive nature of the music and vocals with the addition of limited overdrive that tinges the the original sound and leaves the clarity of the sources intact, not unlike a study of the source surrounding the more extreme distortion and heavier overdrive deconstruction…” Sam McKinlay – The Rita
This new edition is mastered by P.NG5361.BANDERA and includes as a bonus “Cuts series”, over 20 minutes of previously unreleased material, recorded in 2007/2008 for the “Sex Cuts” sessions.
The Cd is limited to 300 copies and comes in brown digipack, featuring and extensive essay by Sam McKinlay (The Rita) and alchemical artwork by Marco Wertham.
