Ralli Rock cover
(CMP 35) Ralli Rock & The Moan of the Sky - To Bring to Light (2017)

Press texts and some label words / Pressetext und ein paar Worte des Labels:

Ralli Rock's debüt Album als "Ralli Rock & "The Moan of the Sky" ist beinahe etwas außergewöhnliches für deutsche Bands und Künstler im Jahre 2017,
denn wir hören hier Musik ganz in der Tradition der Rock und Blues-Rock Bands der 70er Jahre. Hier geht es nicht um gekünstelte, aufgeblasene Mainstream Musik.
Hier spürt man die Leidenschaft und die Tradition der klassischen Rock-Musik mit einer sehr ordentlichen Portion schmutzigen Blues' in diversen Facetten.
Ralli Rock ist unter anderem bekannt als Lead Gitarrist und Sänger, sowie Song Schreiber für Black Hole Raven, die mit ihrem Debüt 2016 international durchaus für Aufmerksamkeit sorgten.
Feedback von Fans und Rezensenten waren gleichermaßen sehr gut, was ja nicht immer der Fall ist.
Man kann es kaum anders sagen: Wenn man geerdete Rock Musik  mag, dann fühlt man sich einfach "Zuhause", wenn man "To Bring to Light" auflegt (bisher leider nur als CD erhältlich, aber das soll sich angeblich ändern).
Absolute Empfehlung ! (Wochenschau 17)

He loves the sound and style of rock musics biggest decade,
the seventies and he also has a feeling for non polished rocking Blues music.
He is head and founder of the appreciated Classic Rock Band "Black Hole Raven"
or the German Underground Deutsch-Rock Band "Null Komma Null (0,0)) and more.
On his first own solo album as "Ralli Rock", entitled "To Bring to Light"
you can hear really fine classy guitar solos, authentic rock vocals
and excellent song writing and an album filled with timeless songs.
It is the stuff, the rock and blues music lovers are waiting for.
Mr. Rock doesn't reinvent the wheel, but he spins it really nicely.

Actually Mr. Rock has performed almost all instruments and parts on his own,
including drums, piano, bass and more, though his guitar is obviously his main instrument,
because it really stands out. And his voice has a great recall value, too. Great job!
This is a really fine debut and we can only hope for more material from Ralli Rock in the future.
Enjoy this great album, which you can buy on CD and Download all around the world! (partly press)

(CMP 34) Black Hole Raven - (same) (2016)

We are proud to offer the long awaited debut album by Holywood all star rock band Black Hole Raven.
These guys play wonderful classic 70's rock, edgy power-blues stuff, some great dirty stoner riffs and more. They like Bowie as they like Motörhead. They like Zeppelin as they like Queen or Sabbath or John Lee Hooker or Sonic Youth. But they only sound like themselves!
And we are happy that this band exists, cause then there is still hope for mankind to listen to HONEST Röck'n'Röll music!

Mr. Kai Neufang (the drummer) took lessons in the past from Neil Peart himself, as he lived in Canada for two years. After that he toured with session musicans from coast to coast for four weeks in the US and played many gigs with acts like Mötley Crue, Rush (secret bar gig), Robert Plant Band, Pavement, Slut, Mudhoney and more, until he returned to Germany, where he was born.
Herr Christoph "Molly" Hautz, the bass player, had once played a Jam session with the legend, Lemmy, back then in LA somewhere in a Whiskey club, where Mr. Hautz spent some days of vacation with his wife (well in LA, not all the time in the Whisky Club ;-)).
He also jammed with Blues legends in Buddy Guys bar in USA and with other heroes in different nuke joints.
Mr. Ralli Rock on guitar and vocals once added a guitar solo to an alternative version of a Bowie song back then (which, unfortunately, didn't make it on the official album version, cause Merks (an audio engineer) preferred a more "pop" sound.) Rock did not meet Bowie in person, nor did he even knew that it was a job for Mr. Jones. It was a typical studio job and Bowie was already not in the best shape. He has also recorded for many other musician (well known as unknown) like Wolfgang Ambros, Null Komma Null, Ralf Rabendorn, Lunalilith, played shows with or for White Stripes, Blackmores Night, Whitesnake, Henry Rollins ex-Band, Razzia and many many more.

These guys know what they are doing and they always sound (under)grounded, organic and unique. A real jewel in these sterile sounding times! Listen and you can only do one thing:
Agree and take a bow!

(correct) Tracklist:
1 No Devils
2 Gone Away    
3 Down the Drain
4 Song for the Lost
5 Lil' Soul Blues
6 Don't Cry
7 Heart for Sale
8 The Dirt
9 Do Not Luv Me
10 Welcome

Our graphic designer took too many pills during the making of the artwork, so a little tracklist mistake happened on the cover.  Track names  6/8 are interchanged on the very first press, which is sold out soon anyway. So, keep it for yourself, be proud to own it  and sell it on Ebay when the time has come to make some profit to spend for dope, beer, women or whatever you prefer.

All songs performed by Black Hole Raven. No cover songs.
Black Hole Raven are: Kai Neufang, Ralli Rock & Christoph Molly Hautz.

(CMP 32) Infinitus Ensemble - Scherbenschlaf (Sleep of Shards) (2009/2015)
A German journalist once said:
"Das Album ist gleichermaßen geeignet für Querdenker, Philosophen, LSD Junkies, Kiffer oder einfach nur Musikliebhaber abseits des Mainstreams"
And we can only agree.  A fabolous work!

An unique mix of:
MedusaDa/ Psychedelic/ Krautrock (with extra portion Kraut)/ ambient Post-Rock/ Avant-Garde/ organic (dark)Ambient/Experimental/ Sound Experiments/ Field Recordings/ Collage/ Radio Play /Occasional spoken words (German)

But there is as always much more to discover in the music of the Ensemble.
Vocals are reduced on this record, though occasional spoken words appear here and there. You can also hear piano layers, field recordings, electric guitars and many experimental sound textures, including objects, gong, bells etc etc.

Scherbenschlaf is a concept album and the seamless mixdown underlines this fact.
Therefore we recommend the CD version for maximum pleasure!

Professional 8 page cover hiding inside the outside cover, made of REAL and beautifully structured Wallpaper!!!
This is a strictly limited deluxe wallpaper edition (only 50 pieces available!!!!) and it will NEVER come again this way!!!!!

(CMP 31) The Infrared Experience - The Dirty Drones of Thrones

With the 3rd official album , The Infrared Experience are releasing a really deep, dark, somehow avant-garde like and psychedelic, hypnotic drone guitar soundscape album.
It is filled with thoughts about politics, greed, corruption, addictions, triviality of today's life and the real life behind the mask, humans like to use to hide their real identity.
The Infrared Experience is using only guitars and effect pedals to express their thoughts and music.
No computer sounds and no voices, so no lyrics, just the track titles like "Lies of Democracy", "Don't let 'em Steal Your Integrity" or "Life after Corruption", for example.
9 exclusive tracks, 45minutes and an excellent album with the strong title "The Dirty Drones of Thrones".

The CD comes limited with a prof. printed thick deluxe 8 page booklet with additional inlay card (prof. printed on both sides) in Jewel Case
presented from your favourite label with the big toothbrush "ContraMusikProduktion (CMP)"
The complete artwork of the printed cover has been created and photographed by Mr. Ralf Rabendorn, who also helped with the recording and general production and this and that.

Also for
People who like the music of "Stars of the Lid", early "Pink Floyd", "Windy & Carl", "Amp" "Flying Saucer Attack" and similar music!

Digital download available from all well known sellers

(CMP 30) Ralf Rabendorn - Among Black Hearts (2014)

He is back.
Back with  a three track EP
Back with  melancholic, dark and very melodic tracks.
Back with ballads from a darker, melancholic underground, that sometimes feels like a childhood full of lonely nights. But attention...don't overlook the sarcasm

He is singing and moaning, showing the feelings you have when you don't want to talk that much.
Are we allowed to say, back with great music and back with another big steps towards the music in his head?

Hints of classic ballads, hints of goth-rock & folk, hints of avant-garde, hints of a lost Underground songwriter and even hints of pop!

All  instruments performed by Mr. Rabendorn.

EXTREMELY LIMITED deluxe CD edition.
8x foldable deluxe cover, professional printed on CANVAS Paper 3" CD

Also (sooner or later) available on ALL digital platforms like iTunes, Amazon, Google Play etc

(CMP 29) Testphasen negativ - The Final Hours (2013)

In the words of Mr. Rabendorn:
 "I'm currently signing the (very) limited edition of the new Testphasen negativ album.
 I'm so happy with the quality of the covers (the best of all we did at CMP) and the whole release.
 This music on this album is definitely not for everyone and nothing for school-kids.
 It's about a journey to death, if you will.
 To me it is the most emotional TN album so far. Somehow quiet, solemn and serious.
 The music itself is still experimental-organic-progressive-dark-ambient
 I hope some of you may appreciate it.

 I am really happy with it and especially proud, cause it made a long way round (2008-2013) and my good friend passed away in the meantime. To him this work is dedicated and he left some marks, too, on this album, before he died.

 Release date is 24th October 2013, exactly one year after he passed away.
 I love u, brother......RR"

Produced and mixed by Mr. Rabendorn, as one piece, without gaps.
Therefore we can only recommend the real thing, the CD!

(CMP 28) Black Hole Raven - First Flames (E.P.) (2013)
soon on all platforms like
"iTunes"   "Amazon"  "Spotify"  etc

This is the debut E.P. of Holywood's new Rock'n'Roll hope and glory "Black Hole Raven".
These 3 guys show us that true Rock'n'Roll is NOT dead. The music itself is mixture of 70's Rock, Classic Rock, Dirty Blues and Underground Rock.
It hits you in your cojones (if you're a guy)
But it is not just fun stuff. Songs like "down the drain" also show the political side, which is often present. And there is more to come.
The most obvious face of this band seems to be some kind of sick sarcasm, but also honest words of wisdom and luv!'s unfuckingfassbar great music

(CMP 26) Ralf Rabendorn - Exile (2012)
Finally the full 4th length album "Exile" by Mr. Ralf Rabendorn that comes out just one day before the official End of the World!
This album has more different (experimental) rock elements than earlier solo albums, though it is not a typical rock album, of course.
Still MedusaDa, still a mix of different styles like: noisy post rock, avant-garde, avant--prog-rock, dark ambient, krautrock elements and experimental music in general.

Mr. Rabendorn recorded the majority of songs already in 2008. He almost didn't release this jewel,
that also features a 5 songs with words written by Mr. Gregory James Wyrick (*).
Everything else was written and performed by Rabendorn himself on instruments like electric guitars, bass, acoustic drums, piano computer stuff!

"Exile" is a concept album. It's about you, about me. You may not understand every word of the German and English lyrics but you may enjoy it,especially if you kept yourself some of your childish imagination.

This release is a triple label collaboration release of Against it Records & ContraMusikProduktion & Global Hideout. The latter  is officially offering the digital version, too and you can also buy the CD through their store.

(CMP 25) Lunalilith - Walls vs. Love (2010)
Second Lunalilith album since 1999. This album is filled with very melodic and sometimes melancholic tunes, mostly sung by Irina  on lead vocals, while she also added a few additional synths sounds and occasional "noises". Ralli  also contributed a few vocals here and there and he performed all instruments like electric guitars, piano, acoustic drums, bass. synths etc.

Irina's fragile and sugar-sweet voice is definitely a trademark of this record, together with the fine instrumentation and melodic compositions. 
For friends of: Indie, Post Rock, 70's Rock, Ambient Rock......
It took a long time, till our new album here has been released and financed, that comes as a pro version with pro 6 panel digipac and it looks really gorgeous!

(CMP 24) Testphasen negativ - Hostia (2009)
"Testphasen negativ, Ralf Rabendorn's experimental dark project, brings you an album filled with dark ambient sounds. This time the sound on the album is probably more consequent (dark) ambient than on previous albums, which means: Less experimental (for TN standards).
Many choir sounds have been used (real voices, no midi stuff in general), mixed with TN's very own atmospheric sounds. The classic song "fading" (an older version was free available) has also made it on this album, in a slightly different and re-mastered version though.
A few, rather melodic ambient songs (Spark, Before the Afterlife) lift the dark mood of this unique album. (OT/ CMP-Crew)"
For friends of: MEDUSADA, Dark Ambient, Atmosfear, Choral, Ritual, Experimental Ambient, Spiritual (kind of), Dark Drones, etc
Artwork, photography and production by Ralf Rabendorn.

Tracklist & Samples:

(CMP 23) Rita Galetti - Falter (2009)
Canadian female sound artist & guitarist "Rita Galetti" has recorded 9 wonderful experimental tracks (around 50 minutes of playing time), who offer great variety and depth.
You can hear drones, sound sculptures, experimental guitar sounds, field recordings, electro acoustic, noise, ambient and so much more. This album doesn't only offer experimental music. Rita also knows how to create fine melodies and great moods.
It's none of the albums, who drift away much too often into emotionless musical experiments.  
The songs and sounds have been recorded with great effort on 4-track tape (!), so don't expect sterile sounding computer music. No doubt, "Falter" is an excellent debut album!(RR)

Pure instrumental guitar project with two "faces". A few songs are really melodic, beautiful. Some kind of ambient post-rock. On the other side there are these disturbing sound textures in some songs.

I guess the best description is "Testphasen negativ".
