Ben Harris Honestly, I'm not sure how well this stands up as an industrial project dedicated to Angolan politics and culture. Nethertheless, and I don't know how the creators will feel about this, I still really enjoyed this because the tracks reminded of the looped music in Age of Empires II. This would be the perfect soundtrack for some afrocentric post-apocalyptic isometric RTS game. I'd buy it! Favorite track: Idris Ibn.

Feivl das Pech Cinematic in scope, could almost be the OST to a Bollywood epic.

African Imperial Wizard was secretly founded in the northern districts of the old low town of Luanda, the day after the ceasefire between the government of the Popular Liberation Front of Angola and the rebels of the National Union for Independence was signed. The music producers immediately focused on the struggle against the colonial military oppression, the pillage of a tyrannized people turned into slaves for centuries and the vengeance of a young generation in perdition
. They planned on conveying their actions with ethnic moods drowned in violent powerful beats directed under a martial symphony. African Imperial Wizard symbolizes the expression of the discomfort left by the ashes of the longest civil war known in Africa, fed by deep and profound social, cultural and regional divisions within the Angolan society.

Tesco Organisation was born of the love of pure industrial music. The label was founded in the late 80's as a natural extension of the interests and recording activities of some young German artists and their friends. The name is an homage to the legendary British industrial band Throbbing Gristle, who appropriated it from the UK supermarket chain and wrote the song "Tesco Disco." ... more
