SIDE A.) REGOSPHERE:

I.) DEATH, LIKE A THIEF:
Mid-tempo industrial drum beats similar to the "newer" works 
of OPPONENTS.Rabid static vocals rage in utter disgust.It sounds
like a shambling march of the living dead while they compose some
grade A Power Electronics.They may be dead and decomposing but 
they somehow still have an ear for structure and composition..So yeah
this is some pretty heavy stuff.Just the overall sound of this stops you in 
your tracks and leaves you just standing there in awe and probably shitting
yourself.Shivers of fear and excitement rush down your spine and through
your body with each stomping drum beat.Various layers and textures of 
electronic synths and noise help to keep things moving along and interesting.
Semi-harsh but never overwhelming.REGOSPHERE has really found a great 
balance and presents this like a master.Noises whirl in the background like
buzzing insects infecting a world that has become a living bio-hazard it'self.
A thousand vile creatures feasting on diseased carrion and then injecting the
poison they just devoured into anything left alive with their dripping pincers.
In other words...This is Power Electronics done right and of the highest quality.

SIDE B.) THE VOMIT ARSONIST:

II.) MIND TURNS VIOLENT:
The mind really does turn violent on this one.Again we have stomping industrial
drums but this time in a much more Death Industrial manner..So of course relentless
and crushing.This really does bring the violence and you can just feel it in the vocals
as well as the overall atmosphere of the track.A perfect companion to the REGOSPHERE
side done in a similar, yet different style that only compliments the previous track and
never interrupting the flow/vibe of the release.This really entices the mind and forces it 
to conjure up thoughts and images of many harsh memories and dark fantasys.For example
while listening to this my mind in response played back graphic and vivid pictures of a 
brutally beaten victim still hanging on for dear life...crying tears of blood from broken 
cornias.In some ways this is harsher or at least more raw where REGOSPHERE is a bit
"cleaner" in production, but it works here...It is almost like both artists are telling the
same story from different perspectives.Maybe this is the rusted world ten years after 
the coming of the REGOSPHERE virus.However you want to look at it..This is a great
split..I advise you grab a copy before they are gone and let the music speak for it'self.
