ADAM FRITZ

SIDE A.) EN NIHIL:

I.) FILTH RITUAL/SERIAL PATTERNS II.) INTO THE BLACK OF NIGHT
III.) THE WOLVES THAT CIRCLE IV.) AT HER GATE:

Here EN NIHIL drags us kicking and screaming into the living Hell
that is his art.Down the narrow blackened corridors of a mind plagued
with disgust for the living and visits from the dead.Here we have what
can be considered four seperate points of view on the same dreadful
nightmare.An aural apocalypse of Harsh Noize constructed and structured
into a soundtrack to dwelling in the farthest reaches of the dark.Shifting
sands blow across desolate scenes of ruin and wreckage.Rusted metals scrape
and scratch drilling deep into the center of your eardrums.This is the sound
of endlessly wandering in a post-apocalyptic void where all dreams are long
dead and burried in layer upon layer of wind-worn filth.Crashing assualts of
noize violently lash out upon you as slow creaking rythms carry you further
away from any traces of hope you thought you saw.Death-rattles sound around
every corner.The entire world has become no more than a junkyard of scrap metal
and useless debris...This is the legacy man has left behind...The few remaining who
were unfortunate enough to survive perform rituals to a chorus of scraping metal as
they dance around crude golems constructed of the remains of the world's destruction.
The entire EN NIHIL side of this release is very primitive and barbaric...Meaning that
what we have here is raw energy harnessed and unleashed to perform whatever it may
desire.Storms of static wind stalk an ashen skyline like rabid wolves.The night falls thick
and heavy adding blindness to the lurking dangers.The air is toxic and nothing is safe or
wholesome any longer.Every EN NIHIL release is different and especially on splits it seems
that Adam Fritz goes out of his way to compliment and support the other artist he is teaming
up with...This is very much the case here as well.Here he manifests EN NIHIL as a beast with a
soul of utter blackness.It is like Adam Fritz dug deep into his inner most thoughts and let them
spill out across the floor in all their hideous glory.If you blasted this shit on a nice summer after-
noon...Every bird in the sky would drop dead,The clouds would turn into grey masses of hate, and
everyone in range would pray to their God's to end the torment that it would bring.Like an orcestrah
where violins are played with rusty nails and knives and the conductor has the themes of genocide and
eradication in mind.By now all is overrun by nature as she sets loose her wolves to gloriously reclaim
her throne.Near silent movements give way to cracks of thunder and bolts of lightning that shatter the
upper heavens as they force their way down to earth in a rain of static.A vortex opens in the center of
Heaven that begins to swallow and devour everything til all is left in Nihil.

SIDE B.) DEMONOLOGISTS:

V.) MANIPULATION CUTS:

Chains rattle in desolation as low winds blow.Raging bursts of noize appear and suffocate
the listener then vanish as quick as they came.This ordeal continues but worse each time.
Blackened vocals of the most vile nature join in the chorus of pain adding more of a sting
to every blow.The screeching of razors and barbed wire joining in intercourse has begun as
everything turns into an orgy of suffering.DEMONOLOGISTS matches the atmosphere of
EN NIHIL perfectly but in his own fucked up way.Harsh noize strikes out in steaming blurs
of violence.Cory Rowell is literally attempting to cut the listener into bleeding bits with his
jagged stabs to the senses.His instruments are blades,chains and needles and with these he
has created a symphony.Many artists have tried to various degrees of sucsess to create tracks
along these lines but here it works in a way that many others have missed.Everything blends 
and flows to perfection so it never sounds like random noize put together just for the sake of
making Harsh Noize.Each layer has it's place and knows it's time to shine..Shine in a way that
a fresh razor glistens in the dim light.This track sounds absolutely ravenous and willing to do
anything it must to feed that hunger.At moments it sounds like every object in an abandoned
mental hospital has come to life and decided to start a fucking mosh pit while a winter storm
rages through shattered windows and adds to the frenzy.During all this a lone deranged psycho-
path screams his fucking lungs out just to add to the madness.I don't know how Cory Rowell
sleeps at night if this is the type of shit that goes on in his head but I am glad he has managed
to put it to tape.Harsher than SUTEKH HEXEN or CROWN OF BONE by a long shot and way
more thought out and interesting in my oppinion.Call me biased...See if I give a fuck.Here at
Traumatic Static we call it as we see it...And here we see (or hear rather) manifested annihilation 
on a warpath.Endless hordes of daemons join in chorus near the end and rip everything to peices.
All that is left is the empty resonance of extinction and then silence.

RELENTLESS IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD.HERE TWO VERY WELL RESPECTED 
ARTISTS JOIN FORCES TO RUIN YOUR SENSE OF HEARING:
