Reviewed 2013-10-24 
Noise music made on guitar (Howard) drum (Welsch) and bass, sounds fairly improvised. Tracks alter between frenzied and calm. Highlights of the frenzy sound like you're listening to independent guitar and drum solos (in terms of talent, sound and detail) that just happen to interlock with one another perfectly; the calmer bits are louder, darker, more disturbing than what you'll hear on most drone albums. I wouldn't call it abrasive, but heavier than a lot of harsh noise.

*1 (8:48) Wild noodling, screeching, squeaking guitar jams with growling bass, cacophonous drums. Play with 2
2 (7:52) Part 2 of 1, a bit less screeching and more of a low rumble; noise bass stands out a bit more.
3 (6:11) Huge waves of drone; these guys aren't fucking around, this sounds like a hurricane. The occasional screech; what sounds like backmasked drums and shouts join in
*4 (5:27) Cruel guitar solos and whines over a steamrolling rhythm
5 (7:47) Guitar warped and treated to sound like knob fiddling, noisy rhythm section
*6 (5:13) Fucked up demonic noise experimentation; vocal samples sound like treated death throes and cries of "oh my god" etc, volume moves up and down rapidly, hints of accordian and backmasking
7 (6:06) Drum showcase provides a backbone for screechy guitar noodling
8 (4:05) Growling bass behind pounding drums, rapidly shredding guitar, the occasional shout
