Stalaggh new track

Post by new era » Tue Dec 13, 2005 11:35 am

When searching for Stalaggh with Google I came across this forum topic. I work for the label that was insane enough to release Stalaggh. Here's a new sample of Stalaggh's latest work:

GAAH!!? Damn, I was so hopeful when I heard you say ambient, but this is more of noise than ambient. Anyway, it's somewhat fair to not get them to play live if they use real mental patients :)

\o/ I listened the whole "song". :D

Their first cd 'Projekt Nihil' is more ambient and atmospheric. Their later work is more noise. They call it "Misanthropik Nihilistik audio-terrror" themselves.

HaHaHa, that's funny to hear you imitate Stalaggh. Although you don't even come close to the intensity of their sreaming. There's no passion or insanity in your screams.

If you at least write a song and thrash out to it about Caleb's life and ways, you'd f*** rock. 8)

new era: welcome to the board, glad to see others took notice of this post.

What is the label you work for? Its been a long while since I read that interview with... whoever it was that responded to Metal Maniac's emails.

I gave the mp3 you left on uploaded.com a brief listen, muted slightly. Ill give it a proper listen when Im at home (at work at the moment). Pretty good sounding stuff for their aims, whatever they may be. Im always on the lookout for sound that really captures a mood or perception well, whether it be positive or negative.

Ive received a lot of disparaging comments from others simply for bringing up Stalaggh because "theyre obviously doing it for the attention", which is potentially true but more likely a silly notion since if any of whoever is involved attempted to "cash in" on such, even in just a social format, it would dispel the entire image. Of course one must always wonder if they actually get mental patients for their recordings, or if we are just dealing with some particularly talented vocalists who are choosing a different route, circumventing the over-beaten path that is traditional black metal (you know, the tr00 necro kvlt kind).

I guess Stalaggh has succeeded in their mission thus far, in that to me, from what I have heard, their recordings, it sounds like a little tiny snippet of the actual Hell.

Wrim; Ive wanted to do something rather evil and heavy, doing low growls of the cultist language (which when I think about it, sounds like some of Behemoth's stuff). I have expanded the Cultist language a bit to have more "evil" of a vocabulary... Ive got it somewhere on my hard drive back home.

BTW that brief session you did, are you sure you didnt come across a The Darkness fan trying to cover a Cradle of Filth song ?

Im much more of a low growler, think Deliverance era Opeth, little bit lower. I pride myself in my screams (though theyre not as much of abject horror and anguish as they are mourning personal revelation or yada yada yada something else). Im in the mood for some Bloodbath now.

seriously, noise bands are just noise. a pathetic excuse to consider oneself to be an artist. apstract art f*** it all up. no need to actually work on anything, just smear some s*** together and bam, you got yourself an art. s***. people seeking actual quality moments in a bunch of cacophony filled noises are deluding themselves.

Hails! I work for New Era productions and we've released the first Stalaggh 7" single and the projekt nihil digi-pack (projekt Terrror has been released by Swedish Total Holocaust recs).
Yes, they really do use mental patients for their recordings. Before we signed Stalaggh it was hard for me to believe it, so before we released anything from Stalaggh we checked everything. And how extreme and unbelievable it may sound, all they say is true. We would never sign some fake band. Mentally sane people could never scream/moan like that. The drawing inside the digi-pack was drawn by one of the mental patients a few months before his suicide.
We and Stalaggh never made any money with the releases, so we're certainly not cashing in! How the hell could such extreme 'music' ever be commercial? Stalaggh have a mission to spread their 'audio-terrror' and we release their stuff because we find it highly original and one of the few 'bands' that actually make you feel miserable when listening to it.
