The last operation
Beyond Sensory Experience
Now this album is a masterpiece.
Along with its sisters Tortuna and Urmula, the first three albums of BSE make a fusion of Salt Marie Seleste-era Nurse With Wounds long and carefully crafted uneasiness with a kind of large scale cyberpunk aesthetic that never seems dated or hackneyed, like the Vangelis soundtrack to Bladerunner with no restraints.
The minds behind BSE also definitely worth looking into: Jonas Aneheim is known for Drakh/Nordvargr (dark and brooding death industrial that later morphed into noise so lovely it caught they eye of Merzbow spurring the creation of three of my alltime top noise/industrial albums, Partikel 1-3) and mz.412 (if you know Black Metal you should know this project, Burning the Temple of God is a perfect album) and the mysterious K. Meitser (who produced several albums under his own name, Traveling Light and Tetraphobia are amazing albums that retain the old-school feel of European early death industrial).
I love these guys, I think they are the only group from the Italian analog scene that took advantage of the fact that they were really creating the sound we know as dark ambient and ritual ambient today. If you have ten thousand years to search seedy websites and music stores for their works I recommend you do so.
