A classic TOPY scandinavia branch compilation back from the 1980ies. Dark noises from Eld-Omala, White Stains, Phauss and Karkowski.
CD reissue of the Various - This Infernal Love Of Life, released by Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth Scandinavia in 1989.
Digitally Remasterd in 2006.
This album was originally released as an LP by Topyscan in Stockholm
in 1989, In a limited. hand-numbered edition. Included was a booklet
with texts, photographs and artwork by the artist. The idea, if any,
was to invite artists working with sound and experimental music to
illustrate the philosophical, emotional concept of the "Will to live".
Eld-Omala and White Stains were based in Stockholm. Phauss and
Karkowski in Gothenburg. One could say that this album presents
a pretty correct picture of what was going on musically in Sweden
at the time. Putting this album together back in 1989. I was blown away
by the aural and emotional power of these evocative pieces. I still am.
Great thanks to Dmitry Vasilyev of Monochrome Vision for nurturing
the interest in re-releasing old musical shells like this one. Otherwise
accumulating sand and seaweed on forgotten, faraway beaches.
