REVIEW-THE VOMIT ARSONIST-GO WITHOUT-CD

THE VOMIT ARSONIST-GO WITHOUT-CD
Assembly of Hatred-AOH08
Death Industrial/Power Electronics
Comes in  a six panel digi-pack limited
to 500 copies.
The Vomit Arsonist is: Andrew Grant


I.) ANHEDONIA:
Sinister ambience followed by a jolting rush
of deep winds and rustling metallic noize
forming a percussion of sorts.Anhedonia serves
as an intro to the further depths of the album.
Sampled vocals echoe through the desolation
speaking words of discouragment.This is only
the beginning.

II.) THE FUTILITY OF LIFE:
Existence is futile.Pitch-shifted downtuned sampled
vocals talk of life and it's absolute hopelessness.Stirring
haunting atmosphere of low ambience and gentile throbbing.
A wave of dense synths and death industrial percussion.Complete
pessimissm.Rising static flows out and onwards turning into several
blasts of distorted screams.The vocals are drenched in despair and hostility.
Various metallic noizes scrape and scratch amidst fields of static and feedback.
All seems to be building towards a climax of hateful energy.Doors creak in empty
halls.A walk through the mind of a manic depressive.A few last stabs of animosity
as intense feedback obscures all.

III.) DROWN:
A sea to suffer in.Echoes of metallic percussion with a classic death industrial stomp.
A realm of chilling horror soundtrack ambient and dripping rusty pipes and valves.A
sewer to drown in.Distorted vocals speak in strands of anguish as heavy bass drums
pound on.Humming electronics ass depth and a thick substance to the cold subteranean
passage.The vocals increase in scorn and wrath as the pounding drums push us further
down into hopeless suffocation.Feedback rings like a heart monitor signalling beyond
critical.Lungs now flooded.Breathing ceases.

IV.) QUELLED BY THE TRUTH:
Rising Noize.Ground shaking sub-sonic ritual drums shatter the earth below.A massive
quake of bass.Explosions of noize bring hate filled distorted screams.The vocals seem to
increasi in volume and urgency with each passing track.All is a battlefield of mortar fire and
waste.The drums take the lead making all feel underground in a bomb shelter as the world crumbles ablaze.A thick sub-sonic fog rolls out covering corpses and casualties.Screams of "Truth" one must submit to or perish hang in the air like ash and smoke.The previous noize floods once more consuming all.

V.) GO WITHOUT:
Deep rumbling synth crawls out of black pits in the earth.Something rustles, scrapes
and moves across a bed of scrap metal and rusted nails.Crashing, churning rythm like an ignited
furnace becoming concious.Screams come in a warped bubbling haze of effects as the creature
awakens.This sounds very threatening and malevolent.It crawls on claws of glass and razors
over it's hoard of broken metal and dead machinery.It sounds like a scrapyard coming to life
with vengeance on it's newfound mind.Angry to have been tossed away by those who chose
to go without.

VI.) UNFIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION:
The title of track six sums up the album pretty damn well.This should be packaged with
a bio-hazzard warning.Not a "friendly" album in any sense.Deep throbbing industrial rythm
in a haze of crackling fire.Crashing metal debris joined with Andrew Grant's trademark vocals.
Distortion, terror and hate.This moves at the pace of a race ending plague.Slow and swallowing.
All is charred, stripped and flayed bare.A skeleton composed of lost hopes and empty dreams.
Vocals sound like they are being screamed through the breathing device of a Haz-mat suit and
rightly so as this entire piece is toxic.This is not to be enjoyed.It is to be suffered.

VII.) WHEN THERE IS NO ONE LEFT TO BLAME I MUST BLAME MYSELF:
Throughout this album you are struck with a strong energy of self loathing, negativity and
desperation.All negative emotion is personified in the seven tracks THE VOMIT ARSONIST
presents to us.The synths are low and dreary.Drums seem lifeless.Noize fills the air with
choking ash and the vocals are stained in regret and anger.Bitterness and not a bit of beauty.
This is most evident in the closeing track as Andrew Grant repeatedly screams "I must blame
myself" until obscuring noize reaches out and carries him away into his own personal oblivion.

Death industrialists take note of THE VOMIT ARSONIST as this is needed to complete your
collections.Also check out Andrew Grant's record label DANVER STATE RECORDS for some killer
power electronics/death industrial/dark ambient and harsh noize:
8/10
