OPPOSITION I-VIII:
The tempo has been set and with that arrives a myriad of
lazer pulses and electronic organs and synths.Buzzing and
swirling in spirals in a vast electrical current.Later this
is all followed by low spoken word vocals in alien tones.
The songs range from slow surreal soundscapes to intense
tracks that get faster and faster, making your head spin
in distorted daydream spirals.It is almost a mission trying
to keep up at times since so much electronic weirdness seems
to be going on at once.Floating spheres of static that are
well under control and artistic direction.During this album
we dwell in cybertronic realms of hectic monotrons, deep rythm
driven synths and effects that build and drop but never too far
that the record loses your attention or fully releases you.It holds
you fast in it's devouring worm holes and black space vistas.Chimes draw
you in like the songs of sirens.Bells ring creating deep emotional pulls
that lift you up and set you down in these endless wonders.At times it reminds
me of  the work of SKY BURIAL or something along those lines though this is much
more industrial oriented but there is a similar underlying quality to these long
constructions of other worldly exploration.Drenched in phasers and zooming sounds
make it feel like you're  wondering through multiple dream lands and entering the
gates they contain which lead to many directions beyond the imagination.A chilling
synth-line plays what almost sounds like the main theme from the  original Exorcist
film towads the end of the second track.Just an example of the surprises hidden within
the confines of the OPPONENTS realm.Static drums both low and fast build to a crescendo
from time to time.Instruments that sound ancient and futuristic all at once are present.
It's like songs from a long lost tribe from times past played through a futuristic sound
system.Huge down pours of acid rain seeking out the highesta nd the deepest depths of ones
intellectual mind flood the senses.At other times it is as if you are treading a dark world
in another universe where carnivorous plants dwell and everything has become cloaked in a
warm blackness.Cold at other times takin us to frozen planes where the ground will swallow
you whole and bury you in fridged ice.Zipping synths make your teeth feel like they're being
invaded by itchy denist drills.With this much weird insanity in eight tracks it would be pretty
damn impossible to descrie it all in a review without totally losing your attention.Buzzing hums
and keyboards that mimick electric guitar leads.Deviant and antagonistic martian vocals.Sometimes
sounding like playing old Atari games while tripping the fuck out on acid.I hope you're not the sea
sick type  as this one would really mess you up.This gets to your insides like a strong LSD trip.
The kind that makes you eat your cats alive like they were fried chicken.At certain moments the vocals
are like early David Tibet/CURRENT 93 combined with PYRAMIDS self titled album.This reminds me of the very
moment you build up the insanity and courage to drive a razor blade across your own abdomen.It's one
hell of a rush and so is this.
AN INSANE ASYLUM IN DEEP SPACE.WELCOME TO THE FUTURE:
7/10
