REGOLITH “I” 2LP (Rock Is Hell), 2015
released: december 24th, 2015
recorded by regolith @ sisi top studio / graz, austria
mixed by mario stadler & regolith @ goon studios / linz, austria
mastering by bernd heinrauch / schwarzau im schwarzautal, austria
for the first time in their decade-long history, regolith are going the distance. After a plethora of quality split tapes and compilations, rock is hell records is gearing up to finally release their very first full length. no more (and no less) than four tracks will make up the double album titled “I” (to be read as the roman numeral for “1”). regolith know precisely how to utilize the epic format of the pieces on this album. time is on their side. the interlocking of dense sonic aesthetics and compelling compositional narratives – the duo’s strongest feat – comes into full effect on “I”.
christian zollner (koma elektronik / berlin) and richie herbst (interstellar records / graz) have filled the grooves of this record with electronic dismalness. a hollow inferno here, a pulverized tonal massif there. a lot of silver and even more black. long and winding paths lead the listener to the drone. the calm is the storm. a hypnotic pulse slowly emerges from the static. thin veils crackle at the slightest touch. set phasers to gloom.
as soon as the first battle is in the books, the second commences. until dawn reaches the engine room. when consciousness is retained, all will be dipped in red. and it will be quieter than silence.
home-made devices, analogue modular synths and effects galore. regolith are tech freaks but aren’t bound to the nerd level. to a greater degree, they use their capabilities to substantially create, to spontaneously mould concise landscapes, to de-construct and explore harmonies and to improvise striking sound art. inhale “I”.

/A3 “the day phoenix died on mars”
one day after the robotic spacecraft phoenix lost its signal on mars, we finalized recordings of this track. we were using a sample from olyvetty’s album “as all-encompassing as a hole”. should originally be released on a split 12inch with NSA but time was running and we and nsa will record a new album.
/A4 “the day phoenix died on mars (flo’s subject vienna mix)”
we really like the vienna based dj collective ‘command your soul’. flo lachinger has done a really fine reinterpretation of the original. finalized in the end of 2010. thank you flo!

this track should originally be released as a 12″ split with NSA which was never released and it’s an amazing remix from ralf tronstoner aka NSA.
68 Dreadlocks’ “compilat” cd (Lufthanfa), 2010
linz based punk-rockers 68 Dreadlocks had this idea of a remix release we were asked for contributing. we chose the song “anti social hate speech bastard” which we really like because it has great medlodies and lyrics which are against the curator of the european ‘capitol of culture’ which took place in linz 2009. in that very year this guy didn’t make too much stuff the right way. we edited the original files and recorded some new stuff at the zauner studio / berlin. the day before we visited a fantastic show of hilary jeffery’s tromboscilator and we were highly inspired by doing so, so we really liked the idea of minimalism and the power of deep frequencies. we share this release amongst others with members of fuckhead, merker tv and alice sitski.

/2-04 “lunar embassy (remixed by n.s.a.)
the cultural club and venue KAPU, as the best club on earth, is our home base. okay, actually regolith was born at stadtwerkstatt in linz, but the KAPU was always the place we lived, drank, rehearsed, recorded. every now and then the KAPU did compilations in their past 25 years, whereas “einfrieren” is the last part of a trilogy which starts with “aufmachen” (1996) and “abtauchen” (2000). this compilations are a status quo about musicians and bands which gather around that place. as we checked it out, we figured out that we were the only band ‘not rockin’ (in a rocker way) or grooving and we didn’t like to be the classical outro-track. we had the idea that a remix would be a good solution and as we’re big fans of and good friends with NSA we asked him to remix our track. he did so and now we think it’s an amazing track. thank you NSA. more information about nsa http://nsa.cccp.at
