Album Review
The Grunt
Reviewed 2014-02-28 
Cool Dark Ambient / light-but-ominous noise. All tracks have some form of spoken-word vocals, though usually you can only half-understand them through the effects. Some speeches are famous, like from JFK, Winston Churchill, and Neville Chamberlain. Great atmospheres throughout. Released in 2014 by Malignant Records!!!

1.) (6:03) Soft but ominous rumblings, heavily effected unintelligible whispers.
2.) (3:40) Rumblings with some blurry locust noises, occasional deep male effect monologue.
3.) (7:01) + Coroner / Embalmist monologue. Some vaguely industrial sounds and broken buried robotic monologue join the mix. Both monologues overlap and ambient feels very ominous. Great atmosphere!
4.) (7:23) + Very soft dark ambient under JFK's famous "Conspiracy Speech" (with lots of echo). Washes of static.
5.) (12:28) + Female gives tour of illuminati prison camp. Later ambient gets more harsh and distorted male vocals take over. More monologues...all of them about CIA-run prison camps, martial law, and conspiracy theory stuff.
6.) (13:03) Winston Churchill monologue with oscillating metallic tones. Yelled male distorted vox follow. German speech to a stadium of people, frankly it sounds like Hitler.
7.) (6:41) + Neville Chamberlain's declaration of war against Nazi Germany set to medium-low-harshness ambient noise. Gives way to a beautiful female chorus singing with cannon fire in the background.
