Beginning with "Spasm" a nearly slow godflesh influenced industrial metal number, things begin to get weird and weird as tracks progress. In the second "Suck & Eat you", the voice of Bullen sinks in the mix and gets more disperse and disperse as the music evolves into something that could only be called a mixture between (note) industrial, metal, dub, and dark experimental ambient. Meandering ultra distorted guitars (courtesy of Mr Broadrick) crawl more and more into the songs as the third cut "Hit" begins in a unfashionable way speedily treading its way into the speakers in the same way as it stops and gets the sunken vocals again.
From then on, the rest of the recording is overwhelmed by agonizing voices that come from nowhere, endless freak outs from Broadrick guitar and Harris punishing drums (with the occasional electronic effects as in the most "normal" song of the record, the single "Lick Forever Dog"). Indecipherable lyrics, slowliness and an impending sense of doom play the lead in this strange and experimental effort as the apropiately titled "Thoughts of escape" where the weirdest of all sounds (seemingly a deformed bass) opens the song as a door while voices cry for liberation while guitar and bass asfixiate everything in sight.
Curiously the last couple of tracks "Orgy of Holiness" and "Still Life", show the tendencies of other projects led by Harris (like the dark ambient of Lull), while they take control of the final memonts like somewhat the calm after the storm.Read more ›

One thing to note early Godflesh fans will eat this up. It's right in that ball park. Why? Justin Broadrick is the guest musician on this disc. Read morePublished on January 11, 2009 by Mark
