Following the 2014 release of Kleistwahr's latest album, This World Is Not My Home, also on Fourth Dimension Records, The Return is a remastered reissue of a limited edition LP originally on Noiseville Records. Both now long out of print and collectible, Gary Mundy (Ramleh, Breathless, Broken Flag, etc.) never felt completely satisfied with the Noiseville release, hence this revisit to redress the balance being more than justified. Here featuring two previously unreleased bonus cuts, ÔThe Storm' and ÔThe Resounding', the album has been digitally remastered by Gary to capture the intention originally in mind; to render the music at once powerful and dynamic in a setting where volume also plays a significant part of the sound. As with Gary's long-running group, Ramleh, the music of Kleistwahr stems from a place both angry and anguished. Underpinned to a huge sense of existential despair, a sense of urgency and frustration likewise screams from this music. Long known for his part in creating a music subsequently known as Ôpower electronics', itself copied by hundreds of groups to lesser effect or duly seen as a wellspring of inspiration by countless others often removed from this form, along with Whitehouse and Consumer Electronics, Gary Mundy's own forays here have always ventured far beyond such convenient trappings. Kleistwahr, his solo enterprise, pays testament to both this and, more importantly, Gary's place as a progressive and highly accomplished visionary artist deserving far more than his status as a merely cult concern. The Return witnesses electronic music once more teased and reshaped into something highly original by one of the genre's master craftsmen. Listen to it as loud as your ears can take. Packaged in gatefold Broken Flag-style sleeve. Released in late September 2015.
