SIDE A.)
I.) SAD I:
What Hellish nightmare monstrosity of audio terror has manifested before thine ears?
Imagine STALAGGH but more minimal and instead of mental patients for "vocals" they
decided to go with a room full of quarantined plague victims.Now imagine someone was
just sick and demented to release this on cassette and you have an idea of what you
are in for.The sound of sickness and endless sorrow fills my ears followed by a blast
of industrial noize.The sound of a thousand tortured screams is defeaning.It may seem
like endless pointless madness to some but theres a rythym to this hell.A living (Barely)
pulse.Nonstop ringing of ritual bells and (to add to the torment) Multiple voices
coughing, moaning and shedding tears of pain and agony.The ringing bells continue as if
at the hands of some sadistic antagonist who gets off on driving you even further from
your mind.Severe anxiety has long since set in with the chilling notion that just maybe
you deserved to be in this Hell.On and on plays the rythm of this tormented hell.
Complete hopelessness and despair.Never can you hide or escape;only endure.Crying children
Screaming  mothers and lung hacking coughing vomiting fathers all in their utter toiling sickness
and suffering.Music to my ears.
SIDE B.)
II.) SAD II:
Side B is much quieter and more along the lines of NURSE WITH WOUND or some obscure Japanese
sound artist.This begins with field recordings of everyday life like standing on a sidewalk as many
people rush around you loudly talking about daily bullshit and trivial matters.You leave said sidewalk
and boarded a train or subway and find yourself riding around on a busy car filled with human filth.
Now imagine (or if your like me, remember) that your a person with severe social anxiety and a deep
rooted misanthropic mindset as strange sounds of feedback change the atmosphere as if channeling the
feelings of a lone schitsofrentic.The crowd falls silent as blades begin to grind together and become
sharper.A faint heartbeat moves along with the rythm of the blades as if they were born to butcher.
And if you thought that was bad next comes the ringing of saw like blades and a most unusual voice to
cause further discomforts.You can almost imagine whats going through this mans mind by the sounds he
makes when hes in this hellish domain.Only to recreate this over and over again for each nameless victim.
Or if you want the short version of this review then think David Lynch composing the soundtrack for Midnight
Meat Train.
