HOROLOGIUM-Carmina Contagionis

Release date:28 June 2021

Label: Ur Muzik

HOROLOGIUM — a.k.a Grzegorz Siedlecki — is a project that devotees of dark ambient, post-industrial and neoclassical ceremonial music are very familiar with and very fond of. We had the pleasure of enjoying the sonic strength of their music live in London during the mini festival Deliquium in 2018 and loved the way their sound was complemented by beautiful visuals that revealed a fascination with the aesthetic of old black and white movies. Three years after the release of ‘Atavistic Americana‘ and one year after the release of their even darker EP entitled ‘Starvation Musings‘, the band is ready to release a new album entitled ‘Carmina Contagionis‘ through Ur Muzik. By carefully decomposing their industrial rhythms and enriching them with distorted dark folk, spoken word elements and choral vocals that evoke the atmosphere of a church, HOROLOGIUM are about to release their most cinematic album to date. Their political comments are artistically handled, shrouded in vocal samples that evoke the aesthetics of old movies, while disquieting loops play addictive tricks with our spiritual comfort. We noticed and loved the way the tracks finish, each breaking its own ‘mould’. This is an album for the end of times, an album that glorifies the moment before everything stops and is reborn. Make sure to preorder it now!


Here is the official press release from the band:

“Every plague has its own melody (music to die to), but the past centuries knew that music could also serve as a medicine: carmina contra mortalitatem hominum. But what kind of illness actually threatens HOROLOGIUM coverthe very essence of a noble soul? Horologium are back with their trademark sound: obsessive and overwhelming aural collages meet sublime ambient fragments, martial industrial meets spoken word and choir singing. The album features a collaborative track with the old-time comrade Der Arbeiter. The artwork’s been skilfully crafted by Bunkier Productions. Carmina Contagionis offers six new tracks on a strictly limited and hand-numbered lathe-cut LP (20 pieces only!). This is a ‘rara avis’ release per se and will not be reissued! 10x black LP // 10x transparent LP EUR 39.00 (plus shipping)  Pre-order you copy at ur.muzik(at)yahoo(dot)com or via our fb page

On an otherwise normal weekday evening, we gathered at this intimate theatre in Athens in order to listen to the new sonic offering by OTHON and Owen Pratt. Little did we know, that what we were about to witness would be a sort of personal procession through sound that both musicians would be creating for all of us.

“A poet is a nightingale who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds.”
-Percy Bysshe Shelley

October was one of the most inspiring months of this year in terms of its independent music output, not only because Stephen Mallinder has released his first solo album for 37 years, but also because SWANS have ‘broken’ their self imposed hiatus. In October we also had the chance to enjoy some great debut releases by new bands showing a strong DIY element. If this monthly playlist was a person, they would be a kooky, abrasive and gothic looking one.

August tends to be a ‘quiet’ month in terms of album releases as the attention is focused on outdoor festivals around the world. There have been instances where we have welcomed very powerful albums during August in the past and this year was no exception. If there is one word that could summarize the effect of all these albums, then this word would be ‘raw’. There was nothing ‘delicate’, gentle or calming about the music that we loved and which formed the soundtrack of the previous month and below you can find out why.


First of all New Model Army‘s new album ‘From Here‘ has brought with it, the sonic heaviness with logo playlistwhich they have ‘hit’ us with, in ‘Between Dog & Wolf’, a fascination with nature, a poetic, existential, introverted sincerity and political comments dressed in captivating metaphors and humour. Because of the fierceness and unapologetic manner with which the subjects of this album, have been communicated, we consider it to be the ‘guide’ of this whole soundtrack. Read more about what we loved in the heavy sound of this album here.
