Thought this might be of interest to a few people here:


http://www.side-line.com/news_comments.php?id=50717_0_2_0_C

"Hey all! Cold Meat Industry is Dead! I thought you ought to officially announce this..., and I should have told you long before.... But briefly: it has been hard to admit it... and to let it go! I am confident of my decision. I had a lots of fun during the years of creating CMI and I've learned it made a massive impact on the music scene. Being in the middle of this creative storm I got personally drained, it emptied my body of strength, and happiness. It caused me deep depression, alcoholism, and misery. I, who thought I was invincible... It was hard to admit to me, and also to all people around me. Now, I am finding the way back to my inner-self, and exploring life again - and music! I am proud of what I have done, but will not rest with that! Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, the Family grave is sealed!"


Well, some shitty news, but not really surprising given the way things have been going lately. As a label CMI were absolutely pivotal to the stuff I was into through the 90's and 2000'sends. So many great albums - what are your picks? I'd say something along the lines of:

* BDN - "Necrose Evangelicum"
* In Slaughter Natives - "Enter now the world"
* Raison D'etre - "Within The Depths Of Silence And Phormations"
* Deutsch Nepal - "Compriendo- time stop!"
* Puissance - "back in control"
*Arcana - "Cantar de Procella"

And many more I cant think of right now. A great many late nights, big joints and cheap wine (3 day growth optional) over the years.

That sucks, but not entirely surprising. I really like their releases by MORTIIS, MORTHOND, RAISON D'ETRE and MENTAL DESTRUCTION.

Exactly! One can only hope that he's gonna put things straight that have gone wrong towards the end, and not using the end of CMI to walk off just like that.

Anyway, my picks...

BRIGHTER DEATH NOW "Necrose Evangelicum"
MZ. 412 "Burning the Temple of God"
DIE WEISSE ROSE "A Martyrium of White Roses" (Not the given timeframe but, personally, the only post-2000 CMI release that was able to live up to the former forcefulness.)
PUISSANCE "Back In Control"
BLOOD AXIS "Blót: Sacrifice in Sweden"

Forgot to mention MZ.412 - Nordik battle signs. Amazing album.

Not that I'm much of a collector, but CMI vinyl was always a big focus for me - I have all the old BDN, Puissance, Arcana etc. I'm curious to see if someone will release the old ISN albums in a nice box or something.

Wow... It's hard to call many labels in history "legendary", but that was that case for sure! They have released MZ 412 classics... I haven't been keeping an eye on their releases for almost last 10 years, but that doesn't change my respectful attitude towards CMI, of corpse.

I guess my relationship with them is pretty similar to many others 'on this side of the fence';
Back in the 90s they functioned as a gateway for metal people to other realms and at the same time CMI found a lot of new customers among us, the metal people. Mortiis of course had a lot to do with that, but eventually it went far beyond Mortiis.
I have not followed CMI in a long time, but respect!

My list would be;
Arcana - Cantar De Procella
Ordo Equilibrio - The Triumph Of Light... And Thy Thirteen Shadows Of Love
Deutsch Nepal - ¡Comprendido!... Time Stop!

I also like the Morthound album and Lupus In Fabula from Sanctum, even though it has some very awkward moments as well.
I just took a look at their discography, and realised that I haven't heard most of the releases that CMI unleashed.
I have an unpublished Arcana interview from 1996 that was meant to be published in a zine back then. If I find it, I'll scan it. Mortiis was also interviewed, but that one is lost for good.
Visually they were always entertaining.

Brighter Death Now "Pain in Progress LP"
IRM "Red Album" LP
IRM "Four Studies fro a Crucifixion" 10"
V/A "Nihil" 2xLP
Institut "Unto the Last Man" 2x7"
Iron Justice "Tell Me" 7"

So many more though.

Read it last night (?) - all things must come to an end, unfortunately.
Definitely a legendary label and instrumental for many, me included, as a gateway. The later phase wasn´t as strong but well...
I was always intrigued by the artworks and layouts Karmanik created - actually his work on the self-titled Satanic Slaughter debut got me interested in his label besides the odd musical tastes of some pals.

Some important releases for me:

Brighter Death Now: Necrose Evangelicum, May All Be Dead, Obsessis
Deutsch Nepal: Deflagration of Hell, Tolerance, Benevolence, Comprendido
Raison d´Etre: Prospectus
Coph Nia: Holy War
Ordo Equilibrio: Reaping The Fallen... The First Harvest

A legendary label indeed. RIP

Blood Axis, Aghast, early Mortiis, ISN, BDN, Deutsch Nepal, Raison d'Être... great bands...

I wish Blood Axis' Blùt had been reissued on vinyl...

Never knew he went through so much shit. Adds even more merit to his endeavours

Discovering this label in the 90's was almost solely responsible for me getting into dark ambient/noise music. RIP
