Cyclopean Eye Productions is proud to present the first sample track of BELL's debut "Secrets from a Distant Star" titled "Mercy Death". Painstakingly envisaged and composed over a period of 3 years, this cosmic entity's draws from genres like Power Electronics, Noise and the early German wave of electronics and blends an abrasive yet hypnotic visage of these tropes while steadfastly creating it's own unique vision. Fans of Brighter Death Now, Mz412 and Tangerine Dream would do well to take note.

Listen to the track here - [url] https://soundcloud.com/cyclopean-eye-productions/7-mercy-death [/url]

"Secrets from a Distant Star" will be released on September 1st, 2017 on tape format (Limited to 100 Black Shell tapes ONLY) and will follow on limited CD and Double LP formats. More information on the release will be revealed soon!

Rather than exploring controversial political or racial themes, or going through the usual sexual deviation motions, Bell has opted for Cosmic Horror style Sci-Fi. With titles evoking images of movies like *Invasion of the Animal People* (1959) and the work of Clark Ashton Smith and H.P. Lovecraft, as well as the more realistic monstrosity of unlimited black space, Bell has found a nice conceptual niche. There is no cheese factor here; the music aptly expresses a wide variety of mostly dark emotions before things that may but should not dwell in the depths of the far reaches of material space – or perhaps at the centre of the Earth! Secrets from a Distant Star is a great piece of extreme, inspiring and partly grotesque power electronics/ambient. - ARCHAIC TRIAD.

New review on Noise beneath the snow

It’s one thing to create a wall and bury a sample. It’s an entirely other thing to manipulate the foundation sounds – the noise waves and walls and then take those sporadic noises, voices and blurbs in and out, manipulating the clarity so that the listener questions their source. It actually creates an opportunity to draw the listener closer in to the art. There is a certain amount of mystery that remains in this album as it should. Bell goes from the intriguing to the mysterious to the downright terrifying. In the case of the terrifying, an example would be the track, ‘Mercy Death” with the sampled screams coming in and out of the static. You’ll just have to hear.
There’s really not much more that needs to be said. This is a mysterious but groundbreaking album that successfully blends the abstract with the detailed, the delicate with the heavy and the fluctuating waves with in-your-face dynamic walls.That is Secrets Of A Distant Star for you.
