Risen from the ashes of De Profundis Productions, this small label oriented releases black metal, shoegaze, post-rock, harsh noise, drone, dark ambient, funeral doom in all formats, including cassette, CD-R, CD, vinyl, diskettes as well as merchandise such as patches and t-shirts. All releases are limited edition. Many of the releases have a special handmade package, some releases have a cover printed on recycled paper, hand-painted tapes, and other unconventional packagings.
The label's first Tape release was the first album of Winter Depression "Твої стомлені очі" in January 2009, the first CD-R release was the promo CD-r of Saturn Form Essence in January 2012, and the first vinyl releases was Moloch "Isolation der Essenz" double 12"LP and Moloch "Ein düsterer Winter kommt" picture 8"EP in February 2012. The first CD (not CDR) release was Moloch "Чернее чем тьма" in October 2013.
Early releases have an old logo (razorblade with words "Depressive Illusions Records"), but since the April 2012 label adopted their current logo. Also since the beginning of 2013, many of the CDR releases have a sticker "Support the war against .mp3 degeneration" and QR-code.
