I.) UNAWARE THAT YOU ARE MODELING FOR ME:
Scraping metal against a backdrop of thick ambience.
It sounds like a murderer dragging his rusted weapon
of choice across the cement floor of his "work place".
Grinding noize begins to churn growing louder as the
track persists.There are quite a few layers of harsh sound
mingling within the ambient haze.Short bursts of feedback
are present but hardly audible as what sounds like a wire
rope being untangled begins to be heard.Somewhere there
is someone modeling for a killer with no idea that their life
will end in their mid-twenties.The volume increases more 
and more.It feels like watching a tragedy about to take place
before your eyes and being powerless to stop it.Distorted
and muffled screams come out of nowhere and fill the
ambience with an even more sinister vibe.A madman
narrating as he takes life or perhaps talking to hiself
in his madness.

II.) SECRET WORSHIP:
Noize like a turning machine.Squeaky and falling to
pieces.The vocals begin much sooner here and sound
twice as pissed as they did in the first track.Strange
swirling whirring sounds whisp away as the machine
plods on and the verbal threats continue.Scraping noize
over a dense foggy landscape.A place of secret worship
indeed.Whatever SWOLLEN ORGANS is invoking here
can not be good.A few odd bubbling sounds and we move
on to track three.

III.) A LIVING CROWN:
Low hissing static in the background and bursts of
feedback.Disturbing whispered vocal through some
strange effects add an eerieness to the whole vibe.
Like a more lo-fi STEEL HOOK PROSTHESIS.
A layer of ringing noize that almost sounds like 
synth strings rushes out over the track followed
by dense pulsing noize and wretched screams.
This whole track reeks of asphyxiation and 
claustraphobia.

IV.) A JEALOUS BODY:
A jealous body begins with a wave of screaming high end
feedback with other patterns of even higher feedback shooting
out.There is an ambience like that you would hear in an old black
and white horror film's score.Classic terror.Behind all this is a pulsing
noize on repeat.Tormented vocals fill the track with a strong sense
of anger and desperation.This feels like it was recorded as a therapy
of sorts to let out frustration and hatred of the world around us.

V.) SEIZURE FEAST:
Harsh manipulated noize that seems to be filtered through more
effects then the previous tracks.Hectic and frenzied.Ringing repeating
high end sounds along with what sort of sounds like wind ripping away
at something rapidly.There are vocals deeply obscured and hardly audible
at first lurking deep within the track.This is a very short track but very
aggressive as well.It most certainly sounds like the electronics are having
a massive seizure before we move on to number six.

VI.) WITH LUNGS ERECT:
Much more quiet then the rest at first but that does not last long.
Again it sounds like a strange machine working as hard as it can
but this time it sounds like it is on it's last leg.Clanking noize rolls
out over and over with a hissing static or steam coming from the
dying engines.Muffled vocals scream out and become louder
and well...More pissed off.Bouts of electronic noize with in a 
harsh threatening manner lash out of the infernal machine as the
beast driving the contraption takes his problems out on the listener.
Bottles break and glass crashes as if in a drunken rage.Chains whip
their way out lashing your senses.A haze of out there noize gathers
just as the track slowly sinks to it's end.

VII.) HAUNTED/HUNTED:
Sampled spoken vocals speak of stress ruining lives and the various
tolls it takes on a person.A rising ambience of malevolent synth climbs
higher as the speech goes on.Maybe we are backtracking and this is a
look into the cause of the madness we experienced prior.A prequel of
sorts.Fragile death industrial rythm drives the final track forward.There
is also a strong pulse of noize like an undercurrent swirling around as
the metallic percussion plods on endlessly.All fades into silence bringing
this short burst of anger to it's resting place.

Power electronics much like the stuff you would expect from a Danver
State Records release.With that same dense hazy quality and bursts of
violent aggression.Greatly recommended for fans of underground noize:
7.5/10
