Subhuman - "III" [2008]

Artist: Subhuman
Title: Untitled III
Genre: Martial Industrial, Ambient
Country: Russia
Release date: 2008

"It must be all lies and of no account when the culture of a thousand years could not prevent this stream of blood being poured out, these torture chambers in their hundreds of thousands. A hospital alone shows what war is..." (Erich Maria Remarque, "All Quiet on the Western Front")

Subhuman was a mysterious project from St. Petersburg that was active from 2004 to 2008, releasing three untitled (but numbered) CD-R albums, one of which is presented here. The project name is apparently an ironic pun on the propaganda term "Der Untermensch". This mini album consists of 5 untitled instrumental tracks that are supposed to be an apolitical martial industrial soundtrack to the human life and death during the 1930-40s. The remastered versions of all three albums are now available on Bandcamp:
