There's not too much additional WACH material out there that hasn't already been covered by HonourAndDarkness, but here's one little nugget of extra WACH-ness - the exclusive track 'Der Knabe Aus Stahl' from the 2008 limited edition compilation Krachcom.pilation 1. Krachcom Records specialise in industrial /noise / ambient music, which description neatly fits the bill of this 13 track CD release.

This particular slice of aural assault from Reverend Kim and Herr Insomnia features a barrage of sound that sweeps and swoops around the listeners ears from the outset of the titanic percussion to the slightly Geiger-counter-esque finishing notes. At various points in the intervening five minutes you're under bombardment from a terrifying soundtrack that at times teeters on the point of sheer exuberant overload.

The next time you need a soundtrack to being chased through a steelworks by a manic with a chainsaw whilst large unidentified flying objects land noisily in the background, this is where you start...!
