SUB007 Subterrestrial - "The City Beneath" (REMASTERED)

"The City Beneath" is a longform dark ambient piece inspired by the epic, groundbreaking 1927 science fiction silent film "Metropolis" by German director Fritz Lang. The composition explores the themes presented in the film and in particular, the subterranean city of the oppressed working class. The City Beneath" was composed and recorded in early May of 2010 and released as a CDr on Black Drone: 13 Series on May 13, 2010 (catalog # 13-7) in an edition of 26 copies. By 2011, "The City Beneath" was completely sold out and had gone out of print. The original recording was very slightly tweaked, cleaned up and overall remastered in late July 2011 and re-released on Subterrestrial Netlabel. New front and back covers were created from the original graphic materials.

Two New Subterrestrial Videos

It's amazing, the things you discover when you Google yourself. Or maybe I should just pay more attention to my YouTube friends? Anyway, this morning I discovered two new videos for Subterrestrial tracks on YouTube.

f1kc1a77 who previously released a video for "The Cellular Cosmology" has outdone herself again with a great video for "Beyond the 17 Layers, a Void."

Much love also goes out to GodofGUFT for his video of "The Bohemian Grove" from our album "Conspiracy Music".

Thanks, as always to the wonderful people who take the time to create these videos. As always, you have my eternal gratitude!

v.a. - "Sounds Behind the Corner Vol. 2"

Sounds Behind the Corner is a prolific Italian-language webzine which covers a broad spectrum of dark underground music and Subterrestrial was very proud to be asked to contribute an exclusive track to their second free sampler. Please give this sampler a listen and help support the artists and Sounds Behind the Corner! Below are the release notes for this collection:

"Valerio Orlandini (here as Symbiosis) was several times in our writings, with his ascetic, dilated and rarefied sound: we present him here with a typical passage, he's an artist we want, also in the future, as a witness of a no-space, no-body sound.

Ira K-Organisation has the task of defending harsh industrial, he completes this mission with an obscure sense of pathological sound, phobic but dancey.

Adam Castillo lives in French Polynesia, one more reason why we have elected him as an appendix of our dreams! He's a great composer, that blends, as in an elegant long-drink, local ethnic flavors with world trance.

Meeting Art Of Empathy means to be captured by dark-folk, born between chanson-noir and languid melancholy: Rome or Death In June of “Accidental Protegé” live today in him, with the great cinematic meaning of his sound.

Emelyan XIII; It was immediate love for the romanticism of this Eastern boy: romantic is his land, full of literary links took by improbable or impossible love, and ideological death. His full-length conquers us between a smile and a tear, a drop of red blood in b/w background.

Gary lives in the Bay, and there's only one bay in the world, all the other ones are derived: it's California Bay, where dreams of freedom was born in S. Francisco, then there are the Concorde with which you can fly to slavery or liberty, Berkeley and ancients forests. Contradictions of a Nation, that Subterrestrial translates in music with phobic or ethereal, glacial or introspective albums: here it's a perfect and algid interlude, aesthetic without reverberations, linear as lot of his music.

Russia again: a land rich in underrated talents, because of the limited opportunities. We're not the mainstream, who seeks for profits in return, although we're asking for approvation, and Veell deserves to be hold in due consideration: his kind of IDM is linear, composed of regular geometries, sometimes cosmic sometimes watery. Listen to him and allow a chance to a great talent.

White Label Music gives us this track of the new English talented duo we loved immediately, maybe we're the first in Italy who have had the honour to talk about The Horn The Hunt. Music and theater, pop and wave, ethereal and fine brit rock are also in the track donated by the label.

French, and as in most of french combos there are a beautiful girl and a good musician; we hope that this rule remains, over time, and that it goes on to donate us an high-level eletroclash, like Shygirl's music.

Sagnik And Krishnaroop lead us in India, with their world-trance, which sinks the keyboards in the tradition and the tablas in the future, reversing any order, creating the new course of a nation that looks at the future, strong for cultural and mystical power of thousands of years.

Namastè to all of you who have listened to Behind The Corner Sounds Vol.2.
As with Vol 1, thanks to Jamendo, always a source of scouting, the opportunity to get in rope and watch the ocean of sound art, capturing the nuances, the small ripples, and proposing the best.
We thank all the labels that help us to grow, the artists who rely on us with confidence even in their first page, to which we respond with love for the music of a small site, but big in intent.
The editors (Nicola, Phaeton, Valentina), thanks all those who in the future will want to subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed:
We are committed as ever to introduce the big names of the dark world, and the small certainties that come every week."
