Robert Inhuman “Decimated” CDR $5
14 tracks of reading, pieces from throughout the previous ten years, recorded November 2010, a reclusive month in Cincinnati during the canceled weeks of the Realicide tour of Europe. This writing is generally somewhat morbid, reflecting a period of intense grief and personal struggle. Certain pieces have appeared lyrically within releases of past years; amidst Realicide and other projects. Others are those that have fallen through the cracks, or that have not yet found their final destination. Artwork features various gigantic spiders of Australia, screenprinted disc, very small edition: 30 copies, December 2010.
Evolve "Circumstance Reality Defacement" CDR $5
The fourth Evolve album, originally released by Tanzprocesz label in France, packaged as colorful collage artwork clippings inside a record sleeve in 2008. This re-release attempts to give more exposure to the album in parts of the world it may have not reached previously. Most of its contents recorded 2007 and 2008, with interjecting bits from years prior. Significant contributions of lyrics, dialogue, and collage by Freak-One (of Cem Com) and Jim Swill (of Realicide). This is warm flutes and chimes, meditative textural looping, urban and confrontational, drum machine and synth, hardware-based, magick-inspired raps unified with psychedelic electronica and tape cut-ups. Evolve sounds like the Skinny Puppy of conscious hiphop, if that makes any sense, there is no other group quite like this. Screenprinted disc, comes with vinyl sticker. Edition: 100, February 2011.
Evolve “Once it was easy to give up everything you had & wander; before the streets were venomous: we walk” $5
The third Evolve album, re-issued after its initial release on the Heresee label in late 2006. This is a beautifully warm and passionate album from Cincinnati Ohio; a collection of tape collage blending into spoken pieces, joined by primal hardware drum machine and synth patterns, humble urban hiphop elements with surreal freestyles by guests such as Jim Swill and Freak One. If you have interest in art and music that confronts the dark, edgy aspects of city life, the grit and anxiety, fears and personal conflicts, but still with an overwhelming feeling of awe and compassion, a love for both friends and passing strangers, the Evolve project is highly recommendable. If you are interested in music that’s purpose is to make you feel invulnerably hard and comic-book-like, you might want to skip this and stick with mainstream radio. Screenprinted disc, foldout lyrics xerox poster, and a color photograph. 200 copies, December 2008.
Evolve “Beyond Limits Being Human” CDR/zine $5
Second full album featuring CM, DJ Yes, Swill, Freak1, more… art-damaged hiphop, socially charged lyrics, dynamic cut-ups and tripped out chop work. Accompanying book of lyrics and many many graff flicks both local to Cincinnati OH and from various cities visited on tour + fold-out poster of a subhuman skeleton dug up. Screenprinted disc. Edition: 150, February 2006.
Freak One "The Recap" CDR $5
Frequent member of the Evolve project and 1/2 of Chemical Committee, this is the first solo hip hop release by Freak One from Cincinnati Ohio. Known for his raps advocating socio-political pacifism and resistance to American super-corporations, the album has an ultimately compassionate and egalitarian theme. As with Cem Com, there is a strong motif of pharmaceutical experimentation, and an honest critique of its abuse both intimately and within our society as a whole. Other topics include tagging, dumpster-diving, and observation of local police violence. Beats were produced by various Cincinnati friends then mixed by Evolve, riddling the tracks with sound collages mapped out by Freak. The screenprinted CD is supplemented by full color artwork, a xerox zine filled with extensive lyrics and essays and graff, and a vinyl sticker. For the truly adventuresome in obscure avenues of hip hop, this is definitely something to try out. Edition: 100, February 2011.
Chemical Committee “Ill-umi-Nati” CDR $5
Chemical Committee (AKA CemCom) is the Cincinnati hiphop duo of Beta Max and Freak One (Evolve project collaborator) rapping about drugs, the cops, tagging, and an array of other presences in their world, both positive and negative – all backed by strongly Wu-influenced beats laced heavily with old video games and movie samples of varying traceable relevance. This is 100% robo-tripping hiphop, raw from the frustrated and crazed urban midwest American youth. ILL-UMI-NATI was originally self-released in 2007, now re-editioned for CemCom’s debut contribution to the Realicide label. Screenprinted disc, color cover art, fold-out poster. 100 copies, August 2009.
Hentai Lacerator "Do me before the Hentai Lacerator CD is over" CDR $5
Appalling and despicable release in 2010 by normally breakcore-related label BRK in Lyon, France. This is the final release of the bizarre grindcore / sped-up noiserock trio of Robert Inhuman and the guys from Capital Hemorrhage and Ultra//Vires. Hentai Lacerator was only active 2005-2007, based in Dayton and briefly toured the midwest and southern regions of the US. This BRK release is a collection of 69 trax of HL at its worst - scathing noisecore, earliest demo and rehearsal recordings, all overtly themed around Slimer and comparable creatures engaging in nympho-maniacal frenzies of orgasmic dementia with human (?) females. BRK has gone all-out in the DIY fashion with a screenprinted disc, several screenprinted vinyl stickers, and a lime green A3 foldout featuring many R.Inhuman drawings dating back to early childhood. Tracklist contains previously unavailable material as well as all releases besides "Covered In Fun" and "Sugarsplash", which were the two primary HL albums...
- "Made From The Dreams of Babies" part I and II (Realicide Youth Records, 2006)
- both cassingles accessorizing "Covered In Fun" album (RYR, 2007)
- 7" (Isle of Man, 2007)
- final live gig 3" (Jeshimoth, 2008)
Hentai Lacerator “Sugarsplash!” CDR/zine $7
The long-dreaded release of Hentai Lacerator’s studio-recorded set, 12 songs about Slimer crying slippery with anxious joy onto animated dreamlike girlfriends (vocal by Robert Inhuman of Realicide), backed by manic and infuriating blasts of abstracted hardcore, grind, and sped-up noiserock (by members of Capital Hemorrhage). D-beat purists will vomit in utter disapproval (it will sound ironically much like the vocal on the CD) but true noisecore and musically-perverted freaks are sure to rejoice about an album that references many punk styles of the past decade while not sounding like the same shit you’ve been into since you were fucking 15, and it’s recorded totally decent as well! So if you love Slimer, or any of the substances that spray off of him, or any of the robust babes that hang out with him, and are sick of pretending like crust isn’t just metal that dresses like “Road Warrior” bullshit, check out “Sugarsplash!” …and if your parents are coming up the stairs just throw that shit under your bed and everything will be cool. Co-released by Outfall Channel (www.outfallchannel.com) and Realicide Youth, packaged in a lime green DVD case w/ screenprinted discs and large fold-out poster, lyrics sheet, booklet of extensive illustrations and interviews with crucially influencial (to HL) figures in adult entertainment such as Amber Evans, Petra Verkaik, Belladonna... Edition: 100, January 2008. GIVE ME PINK. 2nd edition: 100, July 2008.

DJ Immolation "Morgue of Human Sanity" CDR $5
Sophmore release of increasingly punishing and relentless gabber speedcore with elements of terror and breakcore, from the outskirts of Cincinnati by DJ Immolation. 16 trax ensuring no survivors, if not in the physical sense then at least in terms of total psychological disfigurement beyond any shred of hope for reconstruction. So if you need electronic music to be raw, fast, and brutally inane, this is what's up. Cover art by LAIR, screenprinted disc, comes with a vinyl sticker. Edition: 100, February 2011.
DJ Immolation “a Product of Dementia” CDR $5
Debut album from this emerging Cincinnati terrorcore / speedcore producer, “A PRODUCT OF DEMENTIA” is a collection of relentless electronic high-speed strife created 2007-09. Wrenching anxiety through harsh gabber kicks, slashing synth lines, segways from classics like Clockwork Orange and Fear And Loathing… DJ IMMOLATION is a reminder that raw hardcore techno is alive and well within contingents of midwest US youth. 100 copies, screenprinted disc, December 2009.
Mavis Concave “Survive This” CDR $5
Mavis Concave of Realicide, SX, DJ Thumper – 5 track EP produced summer 2009 in Saint Louis – a narrative trudging though complete emotional devastation, intense self-doubt and identity conflicts, vengeful and defeated confessions, and finally the tempered strength to move forward – wrenching vocal performances all to a soundscape of raw digital glitches, scathing breakcore rhythms, and the driving force of memorable synth lines backed by immaculate gabber kicks. There is even an amped up digital hardcore cover of Dystopia’s song “Socialized Death Sentence” for anyone whose job has them considering suicide as a reasonable alternative. If you’d always thought hard electronic beats were nothing besides a cheap accessory to raver drugs – here is another fierce counterexample. EMBRACE YOUR DOOM – IN FORWARD MOTION! Screenprinted disc with fold-out poster (artwork by Nick Francel) 150 copies, August 2009.

Screenprinted disc, color cover art (by Nick Francel), fold-out poster. 150 copies, August 2009.

REALICIDE “Narcissism Is The Enemy” CDR $5
03/13/08 Acid Fever House in Dayton OH, 7 songs recorded live to 4-track. This is the first public performance of the set created by Jon Prunty (of Capital Hemorrhage, Hentai Lacerator) and Robert Inhuman for the Spring 2008 tour of Europe. The songs are militant and reference industrial and harsh noise heavily, while still adhering to the ideas of “contemporary hardcore” put in motion by previous incarnations of the band led by Mavis Concave and Aaron Quinn. The lyrical content (all included on insert sheet) contains topics such as street begging, a simplified definition of politics, consideration for straight edge ideals, grim misanthropy, and the ironic alienating effects of sub-cultures. The sound is raw, in a similar style as the “Which Is Your War” disc a few months prior. Released by Outfall Channel with screenprinted covers and discs. Edition: 125, March 2008. 2nd edition: 75, July 2008.
