The series of the "Folkstorm" monster continues !

The Culturecide Campaigns was released in 2000, only available
for one month through, during which time only 39 copies
were sold.
These more than ten years old recordings has now finally been
restored, redesigned and remastered and features two bonus

This album was recorded back to back with "Victory or death" and
carries the same menacing feeling, but with a bit more structure
and empahsis on pounding rythmic industrial noise.
The Culturecide Campaigns was Folkstorms first attempt at
infiltrating mainstream culture and also infiltrating the new
and upcoming filesharing culture.

Besides releasing this album only online it was also spread in
secret over the Napster filesharing website.
Mainstream "top ten album" downloads were manipulated and tracks
were exchanged. That means that possibly thousands of people
that were expecting to listen to Madonna or U2 ended up
listening to this.

So maybe this oscure gem actually has been more played than all
of the Folkstorm albums, albeit in secrecy to an unaware

If you want rough old-school industrial this is what you need !
The campaign continues...
