"War is EVIL!"
by Mr. Ralli Rock & The Moan of the Sky
You pay what you want, but keep in mind that half of the income of this song will be forwarded to an organization helping victims of war!
Words by the band:
"War is evil" is just a simple song.
This video was not made to support this song.
Actually the video was made one day before we recorded the song.
This video is NOT about sensationalism!!!
We couldn't stand the pictures of the never ending Gaza war (and other wars) and almost went crazy.
We had to record something. This poor little song was the result.
It was written and recorded within two days.
Anyway, this song came from the heart, with the victims in mind and it came spontaneously.
Sometimes we have to do something, have to shout it out, even such simple and naive messages.
Sometimes the simplest messages are the best ones and sometimes they HAVE TO be simple!
"War is EVIL!". Period.
Long time no speak. Well, it was time to clean up our lives a bit.
But don't worry, there is still enough dirt left ;-)
In the making:
--Donation song "War is EVIL!" incl. free video with footage from the never-ending GAZA war by Mr. Ralli Rock & THE MOAN OF THE SKY (only digital)
--Full album by Mr. Ralli Rock & THE MOAN OF THE SKY (Autumn/Winter) (CD/digital)
--Full album by BLACK HOLE RAVEN (?) (CD/digital)
--Melodic EP by RALF RABENDORN (Autumn) (CD/digital)

The German Underground webzine "Kulturterrorismus" has published a review for Ralf Rabendorn's "Exile" album.
Well, even if it is written "only" in German, we have to (cause we want to) publish it here, too!
The direct link is:
Official words by RaF/Kulturterrorismus
Viele Musikalben verfügen über Berührungspunkte, aber NIEMAND anderes als RALF RABENDORN vermag in einen unendlich Sog von (dunklen) Emotionen zu ziehen, den der Misanthrop(?) auch auf “Exile”, seinem neuen meisterlichen Soundtrack, kredenzt, welchen er aus den Genres (Post-) Rock, (Dark-) Ambient & Black Metal(?) zusammenschraubte – WAHNSINN!
RALF RABENDORN stellt mit Abstand das eindeutigste Beispiel in Sachen aktuelle Labelpolitik dar, wo Mitläufertum ohne Ecken und Kanten dem handwerkliches Können in Kombination mit totaler Eigenständigkeit Vorzug findet, weshalb “Exile” halbwegs im Selbstverlag (als CD-R) über ContraMusikProduktion, Against.it Records & Global Hideout erscheint, anstatt im Form ein gepressten CD über ein großes renommiertes Label.
Brüder im Geiste könnten RALF RABENDORN und meine Person sein, der ebenso im “Exile” verweilt, weil ihn die verrottete Gesellschaft dazu zwingt und er keinen Ausweg aus der aussichtslosen Situation findet, worin der Künstler immer tiefer “einfährt”, wobei Zigaretten usw. ständige Wegbegleiter sind, die nur kurzfristig betäuben, aber schlussendlich keine Lösung beinhalten. Im Endeffekt muss man (Frau auch) sich mit diesem Zustand abfinden, dass die Moderne keine emotionalen Denker (& Lenker) mehr benötigt, sondern intelligenzbefreite Mitläufer, die sich von Industrie & Politik ihr Leben vorschreiben lassen – PUNKT! Nachsatz: Nur zu gut kenne ich die offenbarten Emotionen auf “Exile“, wogegen keine “Volksdrogen” helfen, sondern nur der “nackte” Verstand, der irgendwann die Reißleine ziehen muss. Heißt, letzte Kippe rauchen, letzte Nacht mit Alkohol betäuben, den Körper reinigen, täglich Sport treiben und nicht über die niveaulose Menge nachdenken (und zur Not in Arbeit stürzen) – FERTIG!
Vielleicht bzw. Gewiss verstehen nur Individuen, welche selbst im erklärten “Exile” leb(t)en, RALF RABENDORN und seine Tonkunst, die eine emotionalen Achterbahnfahrt ohne Haltepunkt & Ende gleicht, wodurch das übermannende Hörerlebnis weiter über die Spielzeit hinaus anhält – WAHNSINN! Einen Soundtrack (mit 16 Stücken) dauerhaft auf Spannung zu halten, entpuppt sich bei den meisten Interpreten als Reinfall, hingegen RALF RABENDORN zelebriert Spannungsbögen, meist Abgründe, Lichtblicke unter 1%, am Fließband, weshalb “Exile” Unmengen an Aufmerksamkeit benötigt, um komplett Evaluierung zu finden. Alleine die immense Instrumentierung aus Piano, Gitarre, Bass, Schlagzeug, usw. benötigt x Hörproben, um großteils im Kopf anzukommen. Daneben glänzt RALF RABENDORN abermals mit seiner charismatischen Stimme, die die Texte (RALF RABENDORN und zum Teil G. James Wyrick) mit viel Nachdruck in die finstere Welt hinausbläst. Insgesamt ein massiver, zeitweise undurchdringlicher Soundtrack, den RALF RABENDORN mit “Exile” kreierte, der eindrucksvoll das Elend der Gesellschaft vor Augen führt, wovon die Mehrheit das Release keinesfalls versteht.
RALF RABENDORN Werke besprechen zu dürfen, gehört im Verlauf der vergangenen 10 Jahre betrachtet, zu den Herausforderungen überhaupt, wo sich sein neustes Meisterwerk “Exile” nahtlos einreiht, das in meinen Augen wie Ohren sein persönlichstes (wie emotionalstes) Opus (bisher) darstellt – meine absolute (Kauf-) Empfehlung! PS: Falls Sie “Exile” von RALF RABENDORN nicht verstehen, gehören Sie zur mitlaufenden Masse in Deutschland!
"Exile", the new album by Mr. Ralf Rabendorn is now availablel!
Go to our SHOP
Finally the full length album "Exile" by Mr. Ralf Rabendorn is coming.
It sees the light of day just one day before the official end of the world. So be fast to grab your copy.

Official statement from the Testphasen negativ Facebook wall:
Unfortunately Testphasen negativ member Jarosch von der Grünen Alm died on October the 24th.
He passed away much too early.
The remaining member and founder of Testphasen negativ is going to continue this project.
First the saga continues with unreleased material, which has been recorded within the last years.
There are at least 3 albums recorded with the original band members waiting to be released within the next months and years.
There is also one album that will come out "hidden" (not as Testphasen negativ, but....).
Thanks goes especially to the true core of Testphasen negativ fans.
The light, the darkness...may they save us
