Disclosures Distro Update 1 (Unrest, Absurd Expositon, M.B.)

Shift – Abandon LP:

“Following the unrestrained act of aggression that was 2014's "Altamont Rising", Swedish Death Industrial act SHIFT returns to more personal and ethereal domains on "Abandon". Created over a ten year period from a huge cache of sources, boiled down to four tracks of unyielding slow moving heaviness. Abandon features several guest appearances and is SHIFT's most complex recording to date.”
Originally released by Unrest Productions.

Shift, Aspa, Clark, Kokkonen, Setthammar, Simonson 2007-2016

Contains double side A4 insert. Hand numbered edition of 150 copies. Both sides end in a locked groove.

Also released on CD by Cold Spring.

Uncodified – Hyperinflation LP:“New album by the Italian project Uncodified. Fits very well in with the current sound of Unrest.”
Originally released by Unrest Productions.
Recorded and mixed at UEM Studio 2016-2017.
Also available as a cassette by Unrest Productions in an edition of 152 hand-numbered copies.

Kontinent – Stasis LP:
“Stasis - The concept of ceasing to exist through the demand for social approval. Primed to conform with the most foolish and outlandish behaviours aimed at the destruction of the individually powerful. A humanity in opposition and under duress. Stasis combines the same clinical synths and abrasion as on the previous two albums, No Reverse and Death Technologies, with an increased sonic depth as the project continues its explorations into its chosen sounds and themes. Stasis is KONTINENT's third album.”
Originally released by Unrest Productions. Also released as a cassette by Unrest Productions in an edition of 152 hand-numbered copies.

Con-Dom/The Grey Wolves – Waging War Against You CD Reissue:
“Rerelease of their tracks originally on the compilation War Against Society on Praxis Dr. Bearmann. Some of the best Con-Dom tracks. A must for those who do not own the LP set!”

Various – We Gave Them The Future And They Wanted The Past Cassette Compilation:
“Is anyone else bored with the current overload of reissues, reunions, former legends reappearing for cynical reasons or in general can't get their house (creatively and/or business wise) in order? Does anyone else feel there must be something better, fresher and more interesting out there somewhere? Is anyone else keen on learning more about the here and now as opposed to a repackaged "the good old days" that is in fact just stale OAP's piss diluted with vinegar? Does anyone feel that the future has taken too much of a backseat for the benefit of the old and not so excited or exciting?
Then here's your chance to explore 9 UK projects of the here and now. With much pride I present to you Unrest Productions first ever compilation, WE GAVE THEM THE FUTURE AND THEY WANTED THE PAST! Some names are brand new, others are current, none are retro or part of a "respectable" past.
Originally released by Unrest Productions in an edition of 256.

Griefer – Egress Report c30:
“Power electronics for the online age. Check the integrity of your security net. Recently featured on Tesco's massive 'Projekt Neue Ordnung II' compilation, but no stranger to the game. Active since the early 2000s, GRIEFER has been a staple in the harsh noise stronghold of the Canadian west coast and was the key figure behind the 10-year-run of the Noise! festival in Victoria, BC. 'Egress Report' is the first full-length document in a decade, since 2007's 'Brute Force', and comes 7 years after the split 12" with BLUE SABBATH BLACK CHEER.”
Originally released by Absurd Exposition.  Recorded winter 2016 / 2017.  Edition of 100.

Moisture Discipline – Snake Drilling c20 2nd Edition:
“Total analog tape abuse. Heavily inspired by 90s Americanoise a la MACRONYMPHA. The hunter becomes the hunted.”
Originally released by Absurd Exposition.  First edition of 40, second edition of 20.  Identical to first edition.

M.B. - Symphony For A Genocide CD Reissue:

“Re-mastered reissue of this legendary side from Maurizio Bianchi, still one of the central Industrial/experimental records to come out of the revolutionary underground tumult of the late-70s/early-80s. Originally issued in 1981 on Sterile Records this is a harrowing wake for liberal/humanist notions of humanity in the shadow of the Holocaust, with black tunnels of martial, mechanised analog drone, wailing alarm codes, primitive drum machines and conveyor belt rhythms marching inexorably into the heart of darkness. Alongside the TG 24 Hour box, the Broken Flag set on Vinyl-On-Demand, a buncha the Italian power electronic sides, Nurse With Wound's Chance Meeting and Whitehouse's Dedicated To Peter Kurten this remains one of the truly epoch-defining recordings and it still sounds every bit as disturbing and interrogating as it did the first time you ever encountered it. 'The moral of this work: The past punishment is the inevitable blindness of the present' 'Master work, true Industrial.' “ - Dominick Fernow Prurient/Hospital Productions
Originally released by W.M.O./r in plain plastic sleeve & folded 2-pages (bit oversized) front sleeve & no back sleeve in an edition of 200 copies. Tracks 1 to 7 first issued on LP in 1981 by Sterile Records, London, England.
Tape re-mastering: Elettroformati 1998.
Tracks 8 to 10 taken from International Compilation 2, released in 1980 by Scopa Invisible, France
Also released in 700 copies on Hospital Productions.

M.B. - Fetish Tape CD Reissue:

Originally released by menstrualrecordings.

M.B. - Mörder Tape CD Reissue:
“First ever reissue, Mörder Tape was recorded in Milano using concrete sounds and radio waves. Another fascinating M.B. Early experiment. Limited edition of 150 copies in digipack. Cover images are original M.B. Artworks from 1980.”
