Quotes and Comments:
“I have just finished reading the excellent new magazine “Noise Receptor”. A new magazine in the arena to compliment “As Loud As Possible”, “Night Science”, “Terror”, “Special Interests” and “Turbulent Times”. “Noise Receptor” is produced by Richard Stevenson in Australia. I remember the name from when he used to edit “Spectrum” back in the 1990’s, an archive of which is still available on the Internet at http://www.spectrummagarchive.wordpress.com – well worth a browse. “Noise Receptor” started as a blog, but as I am not a great sitter downer at the computer and read about noise kind of guy I’ve never discovered it. I like physical product! Issue number one concentrates on Trepaneringsritualen with an in depth 10 page interview covering the concept of TxRxP and his releases as well as touching on his previous projects (Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words) and talking about the Belaten label and distribution. The magazine also has artwork by Thomas Ekelund spread out between the pages. It is a fascinating and unputdownable read.” – Steve Cammack – Dieter Müh / MuhMur Blog
“What I enjoy about Noise Receptor in particular is the timeless nature of it. Very good complement to the blog service (which I felt didn’t really give the written content justice).” – Kristian Olsson / Alfarmania / Styggelse
“The zines look really good and the reviews are by far the best I’ve seen in a long time. I will keep on buying & reading your magazine for sure”. – Neuropa Records
“I got Noise Receptor zines… epic stuff in handy format. I enjoy with author’s style, he artfully penetrates deep into music and knows the history… if you miss the old times when everyone feels informational hunger about good music, you know how it feels to get a nice zine in hands. Check it”. – Infinite Fog Productions
“A welcome return of underground yet pro-printed magazines after the absence of the days from greats Spectrum, Degenerate, Descent, Bannanfish, Judas Kiss, Denshi Zatsuon, ND, Scraps of Paper and even early issues of Resound and catalogs from RRR, Artware, SFCR, etc . while xerox will always be the most sacred of all zines formats all print is welcome in the era of online corruption that has eroded every facet of society. Keep up the important work”. -Dominick Fernow/ Prurient / Hospital Productions
“New magazine from Richard Stevenson (he of Spectrum magazine fame), operating on a smaller scale, but maintaining the quality of workmanship and print he established in the late ’90s. This tidy, well put together ( ‘perfect bound’ spine, with matte laminate, thick card stock cover’) journal contains 56 pages of insightful, carefully worded reviews focusing mostly on the realm of dark ambient, power electronics, and death industrial, as well as a super long, in-depth review with Thomas Ekelund of Trepaneringsritualen, as well as a lot of his artwork”. – Jason Mantis/ Malignant Records
