Default Vampire Rodents - New Album!

Don't know how many people around here are familiar with these guys but they've been a favorite of mine for a LONG time. Vampire Rodents were an experimental/sound collage music group that blended classical, industrial, post-punk, jazz, electronic, ambient and house. Their first few albums kind of reminded me of JG Thirwell's Steroid Maximus material or 90s-era Foetus meets Skinny Puppy complete with gruesome samples. They took a more mainstream approach for their last two albums and collaborated with a ton of industrial/electro bands active around that time like Chemlab and Three Mile Pilot. I always thought they would get a break (especially those last two albums), but it sadly wasn't to be. Anyways, apparently they're back releasing new material on their youtube channel where they've also posted THEIR ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY! Here's some samples from their channel:

From Premonition (1992)

From Lullaby Land (1993)

From Clockseed (1995)

From Gravity's Rim (1996)

From their new album:

All their releases throughout the 90s were damn impressive. Eager to hear this.

Nice stuff. Hadn't come across them before. I take it Rodentia Productions is their official channel?

Umm I'm not seeing a new album? Was there one?

Edit: Ah..the unreleased Noises in the Wall

Default For the Wholesome Family...

Oh those Rodents. I discovered them in 1992 on the 'Dossiers' compilation and never looked back.

They always made for a good time wherever they were played; Ether Bunny should have done more but sadly this was not to be. 'War Music' and 'Premonition' get more play than the rest but then again 'Lullaby Land' has "Dogchild" on it.

The two Dilate albums ex-member Victor Wulf released are worth looking into as well.
