In 2011, we began to think about doing a record label. We had been following Somaticae for some time and at this moment he was playing some art & punk gigs with a furious live of electronic improv, on the edge between hypnosis and noise. Two of these sessions became our second release, “Dressed like a bubblegum”, raising the interest of people like Surgeon, Perc, and Peter Van Hoesen. But Somaticae had already moved forward, and in a matter of a few weeks, he was sending us what quickly and easily took shape as “Catharsis”, a ten track piece which is to be the first album release on In Paradisum.

Catharsis is a terrifying affair experimenting throughout ten disciplined and often brutal noise abstractions - primitive techno lost between petrifying epileptic atmospheres as well as intricately-layered drones - rumbling sonic investigations, wielding barbarous kickdrums and rusted percussions to lacerate weakening flesh - blind lamentations of bone chilling voices and abrupt sounds - a sort of black mass supported by punishing percussions - alarming levels of feedback and distortions - a steep emotional breakdown turning in an emotional renewal.
