Koufar – The Death of Myself CD


To celebrate the tenth anniversary of New Forces we are excited to reissue an album from the label’s first batch of releases. At the time, Koufar’s “The Death of Myself” represented the closing of the project’s first chapter. A sonic requiem delivered at maximum volume. The innovative blend of classical samples and abrasive vocal exhortations carved out a unique position in contemporary power-electronics. Content focused on the politics and history of Lebanon eschewed genre tropes for something greater, injected with the artists personal experience. Over time Koufar’s influence on the genre has grown, and these recordings are once more available, fully remastered by Grant Richardson with new art and two additional bonus tracks: one unique to this CD, the other previously included on the “The League of the Divine Wind” compilation.
