FUSION / RUKKANOR: WUNDERWAFFE
3" MCDR: War Office Propaganda WOP07 
Ltd x 100
War Office Propaganda record label, although a relatively fledgling enterprise,
just keeps churning out some of the best music within the Military Industrial
/ Dark Ambient / Neo-Folk genres that you’ll ever encounter. Those
of us privileged to have heard their output have become total converts
to their cause and greet every release with a mixture of anticipation
and elation. I have no qualms about mega praising them on high and now
here’s one more reason to draw this damn fine label to your attention.
Cold Fusion, whose music just keeps increasing in maturity and whose previous
works you’ll find reviewed elsewhere on this site, and Rukkanor,
who released the totally exquisite and beautiful "Requiem for K-141
KYPCK" which just gets better with every listen, have released this
split 2-track 3" MCDR dedicated to those civilians who lost their
lives during WW2 to the V-1 + V-2 death weapons. Known as the flying buzz
bomb the V-1 terrorised London and the surrounding countryside whilst
the V-2 was the prototype to all rocket propelled warfare we know today.
The Cold Fusion track, 'V-1', is a suitably impressive martial
drummed thumper with accompanying stirring melodic tune and German spoken
samples which is a reflection of this artists work and how he combines
all these elements elegantly and to great effect. The Rukkanor track,
'V-2', takes a more slowed down approach with the drum pattern
more sombre and the haunting strings adding just the right amount of deference
to the subject matter.
Although clocking in at only 14+ minutes this recording by both artists
/ groups is a wonderful example of Military Industrial as it should be
heard and played today. I suppose that if I was to pick a fault with this
release it would be that I would have liked a couple more tracks each
from Cold Fusion / Rukkanor but that’s just greed on my part for
wanting to hear more of their music. Apart from that selfish aspect "Wunderwaffe"
is a faultless release w ith a price to match.
