Now I'm fucking pissed off, seriously. I had nearly completed the review of this CD when my goddamned machine crashed. I was describing how hateful and loathing this disc is, how spiteful to the human condition and obsessed with anger and hatred it seems.
The cover being the color of both shit and dirt, the music being constructed from noises of power tools, home built machines and instruments and 'field recordings.' While it was all about anger and destruction, I didn't quite feel anger about destruction until the machine crashed. Now I really feel it. Man I could put my fist through the fucking wall. I don't want to hear any more of this bloody piece of shit. I have become the fucking Analysis of Self-Destruction. Goddamn is this an effective and emotional CD. Okay, I'm calm now, listening to it again, yes I can hear the noises of the dirt in "Under Mother Earth's Skin" and the nightmarish dream-state induced by the low hum of late night sounds eminating from my kitchen in "A Head in the Refrigerator of Apartment 213." Alien8 Recordings has described this CD as being the soundtrack to man's destruction of the earth, but I see it stretching beyond that to include the destruction of others and the destruction of himself. While members have worked with Merzbow and other noise outfits, this disc has a life all its own. Over the course of six tracks and 71 minutes, the music develops and flows quite appropriately, charging the listener into the emotional aspects of the true base of negative feelings. It's almost the musical interpretation of the destruction a construction crew has to do to a road before they build over it again -- it backs up the traffic, unearths smells and stenches from the soil, looks very ugly, backs up traffic for months and has no visible end in sight. There's nothing pretty about this disc. Don't say you weren't warned.
