An essential document of a niche global scene

For almost a decade the zine, Noise Receptor Journal, has been documenting the international post-industrial music underground. Each issue has featured reviews and exclusive interviews on dark ambient, death industrial, heavy electronics, power electronics, and other largely ignored forms of music.

Noise Receptor Journal remains a labour of love in the true spirit of the underground. Self-published (out of Melbourne, Australia) it documents a cultural landscape from a unique vantage point, being at once an established and respected voice on that landscape.

This book is the first in a series that compiles the long out-of-print, much sought-after early issues, and contains in their entirety Noise Receptor Journal numbers 1, 2 and 3, as well as new material.

Featured artists include: Alfarmania / Aischrolatreia / Aural Hypnox / Blitzkreig Baby / Fieldwork / Genocide Organ / Grunt / Halo Manash / Puce Mary / Survival Unit / Trepaneringsritualen / Wertham

Press reaction
Noise Receptor Journal continues the same, high quality path of its predecessor, Spectrum Magazine, and ups the ante. Outstanding coverage of the true underground dark ambient/death industrial/industrial scene.
Jason Mantis/Malignant Records
A welcome return of underground yet pro-printed magazines in the absence of greats such as Spectrum, Degenerate, Descent, Bannanfish, Judas Kiss, Denshi Zatsuon, ND, Scraps of Paper and early issues of Resound and catalogs from RRR, Artware, SFCR, etc. All print is welcome in this era of online corruption. Keep up the important work.
Dominick Fernow/Prurient/Hospital Productions
Noise Receptor zines… epic stuff in handy format. I enjoy with author’s style, he artfully penetrates deep into music and knows the history… if you miss the old times when everyone feels informational hunger about good music, you know how it feels to get a nice zine in hands. Check it.
Infinite Fog Productions
Whether you’re a long-time follower of the post-industrial scene, or new to the wider genre I’d say Noise Receptor Journal: Archive Volume One is a must-buy item – as both the interviews and reviews are most informative and well-written.
