Rose Recordings are proud to present a collection of rare and unreleased tracks
by the influential English experimental group Contrastate.
This follows on from the sold-out compilation “False fangs for old werewolves” showcasing a dark ambient realm of spoken and sung soliloquies, driven machinery, evolving drones and electronic minimalism to create juxtaposing imagery and dreamlike landscapes.
This release is presented in a beautiful gatefold CD cover with a four-page booklet containing detailed (mis)information on the history of each of the tracks.
from the late 1980s through to the present day Contrastate provide a sonic
soundtrack to a hypnotic world full of dynamic sounds and emotional shifts.
Their sound insinuates itself somewhere inside the dark ritual ambience of the electronic avant-garde shot through with a vein of experimental noise and sarcophetic vocals strewn amongst industrial surrealism.
“Contrastate achieve an amazing equilibrium between organic sound and brooding electronics” – Heathen Harvest.
