New and Forthcoming Releases: Caligula031, Death Pact International, Solco Chiuso, and a Slogun / Wertham Split


Collaboration CD between NYC true crime legend Slogun and Italo-anti-socialite Wertham. 10 tracks featuring collaborations and stand-alone tracks by both projects, focusing on different atmospheres, ranging from full-blast power electronics to constructed atmospheric industrial, completed with constant vocal assaults.

Balistreri and Deplano were inspired for this work by their family backgrounds, turf related animosities and to situations where you know you can count only on your next of kin, blood of the same blood, flesh of the same flesh.

Available in digipack and 12 page booklet with full text. Artwork by John Balistreri.  Co-produced with Old Europa Cafe.


Caligula031 – Private Venus (Lake Shark Harsh Noise #08)


Caligula031 is back with an all-new release for Lake Shark Harsh Noise with a 40 minute trip in the surroundings of Lugano Paradiso, the notorious Italian Swiss red light zone where men of any age are willing to spend a big amount of what they earn for tasting flowers of flesh coming mostly from the East. Fierce, minimal, intense hatecore electronics with vocals covered under layers of analog noise.

“Most of the people who are opposed to the sex industry and sex work are feminist lesbians with a holier-than-thou prudish attitude towards the industry. I don’t deal with street prostitutes. The ladies I include are well-respected for their unique services and private venues and they all are in a job they want to be in and enjoy.” – George McCoy

Recorded and mixed in 2015 and Nerolidio and Istituto di Elettronica Radicale – Como – Insubria.

Edition of 105.
Housed in standard LSHN OEC / Slaughter style card cover in a ziplock bag.
Includes 3 double sided 8.5″ x 11″ inserts featuring lyrics, imagery and more.

Foresta Di Ferro and John Murphy 

‘As most of you already know, the one and only John Murphy left us, leaving an unsettling sense of emptiness surrounding us. I won’t repeat what I have already said elsewhere, but we were all gutted, yet we are sure John will still be with us for the years to come since he left an enormous amount of material, thoughts, sounds, influences and memories, both at personal level than as music-partner.

Due to John’s loss, we have decided to place the works of the forthcoming “Might Be Never, May Be Forever” album on  hold until at least the next year. John had already contributed many sounds and we hoped to either meet or record percussions separately, this winter.

Our thoughts go to his wife Annie and his closest circle of friends who have been close to John during the last days on this planet.

Next in the pipeline:
