When the bomb goes off start playing this. Haunted post apocalyptic (barely identifiable) guitar noise improvisational soundscapes allegedly Inspired by the Iannis Xenakis piece La Legende d’Eer where the title character dies, visits hell, and re-emerges from the dregs. Dark brooding noise & eerie vibe tell a story, which I have tried to retell as most accurately I could.


1-(1:28) Dark, brooding, bad mixture of pills with a television tuned to static as you contemplate your miserable life alone, masturbating to the weather channel again.

2-(7:37)Wailing souls, zippy torture devices, roar of flames, low foghorn like sound. The torture becomes unbearable and you kill yourself.

3-(2:47)Creepy off kilter windswept rumbling and high pitched & gurgling

4-(2:55) Guitar is somewhat identifiable and bowed to a low twisted drone with oscillating random electronic noises.

5-(5:32) You are in the freak show at hells circus: chirping dead duckling sounds & haunted circus noise, bell tones.

6-*(6:29)Brooding dark drone begins leading to screaming dentist drill torture from Satan himself as you give him your unyielding devotion and accept the anal pineapple and let it tickle your prostate. Fuck yes.

7-(6:25)You an exit, towards the light of hippeguitars above. Your rusty iron shackles squeak as you swim towards it. Things go wrong.

8-(6:50) Dripping wet in viscous liquid near hells gate, you hear the scream of a thousand souls like yourself. The rats and insects are released and chew most of you up to a trickle, you survive and exit hell.

9- (3:56)Freedom! Luxurious rich low sounds invites you back to Earth.The twisted tropicalindustrial dystopia you left. AWESOME ending sounds of Airplanes falling from the sky.

10-Back at home, alone in your apartment, 4:33 am, strung out who knows how many pharmecuticals (which got you in this problem in the first place). Sparse but rich, wavy, airy rich and dreamy.

11- In bed, multi-fluorescent vicodin dreaming The face of the most beautiful woman you saw in hell appears.
