LIMITED TO: 100 copies on black hi-bias chrome tapes.

A.) ABSENT GOD:

Sampled spoken vocals.Deep bass riffs.Funeral paced drums.
Industrial sounds and feedback.Buried beneath all this screams
struggle for air.Struggle to be heard.Samples and industrial
drums persist.The vocals begin to sound more desperate for
attention altogether more angry.Clean doomy vocals as the screams
to gasp.The riffs grow slightly faster then fall into the slow groove
they were.Ringing leads and feedback Then the doom laden vocals return
for a moment giving way to a few more wretched screams and samples.

B.) SLEEPING GIANT:

Industrial electronic rythyms.Downtuned bass and feedback.Sloth paced
drumming and a myriad of blackened screams way in the background.
Feedback rings out and serves as the lead instrument.Side B has much
more of a drone doom feel.Clean guitar can be faintly heard but not
for long.Srceaching noizes and more clean drones shine through.Odd sounds
peak their heads out here and there.At times it feels like two very slow
songs are being played at once as if some doom obsessed DJ decided to fuck
with the minds of his audience.Industrial pummeling and a lone tortured scream.

THIS SHORT TRIP GETS A:
5/10
