Welcome

elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Igor Wakhévitch - Docteur Faust





Edit: I just realized how low the bitrate is on this album. I realize 128kbps isn't good enough for many of you, so I will try my best to replace this with a higher quality rip soon.

Edit 2: The album with the improved bitrate is now up. Thank you for your patience.

I know I would really appreciate it if you could re-up it in a higher bitrate, this looks like a fascinating album and I will wait till I hear it in all its 225-320 glory! Thanks for noticing the low bitrate and being prepared to do something about it, its sometimes really fustrating when you know something could have been ripped at a higher rate, I'm glad you feel that way as well!

I appreciate the option you have offered us occasional perusers like myself...here is an early member of classic music orchestrated mid-eighties "Industrial Music" beginnings later to morph further to the "Difficult Music" tag with Rapeman and the like. Long time no speaky Zer0-II

The Saucer People: The best I was able to find was 224kbps, which I suppose is much better than 128kbps, but still not perfect. To be honest I never put a lot of thought into the bitrate of some of the albums I upload until fairly recently. I use a plugin called DFX for winamp, which drastically improves the sound of low bitrate music. Sometimes I make the assumption that the albums I have are ripped to 320kbps, and I forget to check them before I upload them, which is the case here. I'm in the process of tagging the tracks, and then I'll reupload the album with the improved bitrate later today.

Mark: How are you doing old friend? Good I hope. Thanks for the link. I'll be sure to give it a listen shortly.

A situation that occurred last night made it impossible for me to upload the album with a better bitrate. I'm in the process of uploading it right now. If I have time before work I will post it, but if not I'll had to do so either tonight or tomorrow afternoon.

Zer0_II said...

The 224kbps version of the album is now posted. Thank you for your patience. I hope everyone enjoys the improved quality.

Yeah I'm on the way out for a walk (so I can download when we're ready ZEROII)but hey Zero, my name is Viacom not Mark at Downunderground my real name is Patrick so I just had a great traditional holiday at my folks dinnertable and while watching "Quiet Man" my dad's favorite for the zillionth time yesterday. BTW the band I posted above is named TEST DEPT and it has excellent tribal drumming mixed with classical music.

Viacom: I'm sorry for the mixup. I looked at your profile and saw the Down Underground blog listed, and mistakenly thought you were Mark Underground. He drops by here occasionally, although I haven't seen him in a while. Tell him not to be a stranger if you talk to him. I'm glad to hear you had a nice holiday dinner. I'm over a thousand miles away from home, and it might be a while before I'm able to see my family again. Being away sure makes you appreciate what you have back home. I've downloaded the Test Dept album you posted, and I'm about to listen to it shortly. Thank you once again for posting it. I love when people unexpectedly leave music for me to listen to. Take care.

Thanks so much for you hard work in re-upping the album with a 224kbps, its really appreciated and was well worth the wait, it has that same kind of feel as some of JP Massiera's material..more DMT than LSD if that makes sense with a feel of the universe on the brink of either falling into entropy or reconfigurating into a negentropic spiral...the French always do this kind of deranged kosmische better than anyone else.

On a side note, its great to see a whole new generation of people listening to the mighty Test Department, sometimes they get over-shadowed by Neubauten & SPK in the industrial metal-bashing hall of fame and its a shame because they were far more than just dustbin-bangers or metal sheet copyists...

PS> now that you have enabled comment moderation, how on earth do they still come through? Like the comment above which seems to approximate a two year old's take on a Joycean stream of consciousness.

Viacomclosedmedown on youtube said...

Oops, sorry I was hoping for a 320 rip hence the stream O' consciousness that was not adhered to ....sorry not the "glory!" hole saucer dink was mentioning

Thank you so very much for this link. I didn't have this myself, as Zer0_II posted this & is seriously MIA.
