Special vinyl release of the fhird Burning World Records release in 2008 after Gnaw Their Tongues and a vinyl version of Marijn by Machinefabriek.

At the time it was only released on CD. Some of the material of Ranonkel (besides new Machinefabriek-material) was used by Swiss filmmaker Rene Gardi for his movie African Mirror.

Specially mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin (Bell Witch, Godflesh) in 2019. The press at the time about Ranonkel: Vital weekly: Using guitar, effects, vinyl and laptop, Rutger Zuydervelt creates highly atmospheric pieces of music, like he always does.

His previous effort, the soundtracks to films for the Rotterdam Film Festival wasn't so much of my liking but on 'Ranonkel' he more than makes up.

These are strong pieces again, varied in approach, although all centered around the notion of dark atmospheric music, each of them has their own approach.

aQuarius: The sound of Machinefabriek seems to be moving in a much more melodic direction, not that there wasn't always plenty of melody, but these latest forays into soundmaking sound less purposefully experimental, less abstract, and more songlike, more melodic, the opener is downright lovely, and sounds like it could be Godspeed or some Godspeed spawned outfit, a luxurious slow burn, and deep warm chords and glistening sprinkles of high end over the top, haunting and ominous and cinematic, might just be the best track we've heard from Machinefabriek.

But heck, the rest of the disc is some pretty great shakes too.
