SIDE A.)

I.) KID'S WORLD:
This starts off like a meeting being held by a secret cult or organisation.
A speech is in progress backed by a loud Martial Industrial march.The tempo 
builds up along with strong spoken words in explanation of what this planned
"Kid's World" really is.Grim details are revealed in harsh clarity.Talk of violent 
games to prepare the youth for a global confrontation.The children are to be 
raised fully trained and militarized.BLITZKRIEG BABY are on a mission to change
 reality and this is not only the soundtrack but also a code of conduct for the future
generations.Just listening to this brutal track puts so many images in the imagination.
It is almost like a video playing in my head.Visions of children all fucked in the head
due to a society that has failed them.This is a call to arms to make a change...A change
that must come through brute force.Kid's World is a relentless marching death choir that
takes brain washing to another level.Synths play on like  broken children's toys as the 
miniature soldiers march on through decaying streets of mutilated bodies and flaming
destruction.They are now puppets of warfare and BLITZKRIEG BABY are the puppeteers.
And they command you to go forth and KILL KILL KILL...

II.) LOOP:
Loop begins like a confession of things witnessed that are not meant
to be spoken aloud...This is like a covert meeting held over minimal noise.
All the better to unsettle your mood as you listen closely to the vocals of a 
man as he reveals things that happen all over the world that not many people 
take the time to believe.Most will never understand the magnitude of events
that take place everyday right under their noses.Things involving what happens
behind the closed doors of officials who are responsible for their so called security.
BLITZKRIEG BABY use their low shifting noise as a tool to expose the secrets of the
corrupt and urge the sleeping public to wake the fuck up and take action.Here we
hear of the unknown people that tear away at your walls daily...Of those appointed 
to keep you safe and protected who instead hack into your personal information and 
spy on you everyday.You think you are safe in your suburban homes...Tightly wrapped
in your illusion of security and control...As you sit there watching flashing screens and
devouring gossip and filtered media there is a man somewhere behind a monitor eating  
old macaroni with a cigarette hanging from his dry lips taking over your shit and managing
your life as the authorities see fit.Tribal drums pick up with deep bass filled synths for a dark and 
personal build up like memories of the fucked up life experiences that made these men behind
the scenes what they came to be...No where is safe...We dwell in an endless loop of corruption.

III.) THE SWINE SUPREMACY:
Steady drums with minimal noise set the atmosphere.Dark and empty...Vocals begin
that start listing off many obscene things.In crisp detail and vulgarity.Things associated
 with violence, mutilation and perversion.The way they are spoken is very clever.Perfectly
timed or "executed" as I am sure would be the preferred term if it was up to the artists.
They flow with the bass filled drums pounding heavily in the background.The addition
of the drums really helps to leave a mark in your mind.Reality is brought into view in
crystal clarity...Now you shall see just how filthy this world really is.A world ran under 
the control of The Swine Supremacy.I say job well done...Not to the swine but to this
band and any others like it.The blind public needs a wake up call.How long will you
choose to simply ignore what is going on all around you?How long will you sit by and
just let the system that runs your life ruin your life? These are the types of questions 
asked here...Sometimes in a subliminal or metaphoric manner and sometimes straight
out.The way these guys blend the speech with music is pretty amazing.It all flows in a
surreal stream that feeds it's way straight into your brain...Like I said before..very clever.
Words can pass through one ear and out the other...But when put with music in the way
that they are here they stay...A picture can say a thousand words and these guys paint a
very brutal picture.

IV.) THOSE THEY COULD NOT FUCK, THEY KILLED:
When first listening to this one I could only imagine what I'd be in for as the noise 
began to build.Minimal as is obviously the chosen approach of these guys...Yet with 
a boldness held by a steady drum beat.Half Death Industrial...Half Martial Industrial.
And all aggressive.Whispering voices in the distance...What seems like a dog's cry for 
help.I look at the song title and I imagine just how brutal the situation would be if I could 
see it for myself...All the bodies raped, beaten or both.The amount of blood on the ground 
leaving no clean spot for ones foot to step on.Drums still flowing like ones dying heart beat.
What I can only describe as Industrial sounds echo across the scene.It sounds like the noise
was created in a room filled with metallic objects left abandoned for years but now being
used again and again.Not only for the creation of these sonic onslaughts but as a place of 
torment as well...Obediance or death...These are your options.

SIDE B.)

V.) HALF PIG HALF MAN:
Side B has begun with an industrial march and a scratchy beat...
Like a ticking time bomb that only builds and grows in danger
from this point on.Deep booming synths add to this chronicle. 
The tale of the disfigured pig man.A beast who digs his way through 
a life of shit until he bursts and lashes out in retaliation.Descriptions
of brutal violence and carnage against this fucked up world are told
in detail...But who could blame the guy? I can't even stand when people
look in disgust or laugh at me...All because I am "Different" Could you
imagine if you were the half pig half man? Many of us have felt like or
been treated as outcasts in this life...And as cliche as it may be...It will
always be a comfort to have music you can "Relate to" We are all pigs
at times...Fuck it...

VI.) BROKEN CHILD:
This sounds almost orchestral...You get that theater quality surround sound
blasting out of the speakers.Gotta love that! The vocals are slow and dark but
more soothing than threatening.Spoken words tell a story of a child very broken 
indeed.This song is highly emotive and will make you believe it as a true story...
Well...sadly...In many cases it is...Exposing our fucked up reality is nothing new 
to noise but sometimes we can be numb to it...This however makes me feel for this 
unknown child...Sharp synths rise like daggers gleaming in a horror scene.Multitudes
of noises that tie together forming the curtains that grace the stage in this theater of 
pain.Every song here has it's own story with a very significant meaning...But with this
one I feel like I'm there watching this broken child.Like some sort of bad dream where
you see terrible images flash before your eyes but can do nothing to change those horrific
events.You really have to have felt what this track is about to be able to portray these
emotions that are carried through my speakers.Life gives us all shit...but it takes a true
artist to turn that shit into something so stirring.

VII.) INCINERATOT SYMPHONT NO. I:
It sounds like war of the worlds is happening outside of my window.
The feeling is surreal and epic.The build up is slow and the rise is low.
But all together the excitement is still there hanging in the silence between 
the sounds.The overall structure and timing here is pretty damn genius.Here
we have got just the right amount of everything.Not overbearing and it pulls 
you in like the calm before the storm...Almost bell like ringing sounds call through 
like  a summoning...Like an opening of gates to flood the earth in a long overdue reckoning.
May the strongest remain when this is all over...Hope to see you there...

VIII.) CHILDREN IN UNIFORM MMXIII:
Strong shouting vocals like the commands of a leader...Standing on 
a stage while speaking to an entire army of children in uniform.Children
who are eagerly awaiting their next call to duty.Front line drums add to 
the intensity and antisipation as the man continues his speech.Then the
tempo kicks in making my brain throb through my head phones.By now 
I am sure you have noticed that there is a theme throughout this album.
One of war and resistence.BLITZKRIEG BABY play like armed soilders of 
an underground movement...And in many ways they are...Slow marching
takeovers...They deploy, Set up camp, Take control and move out.Many
artists use this tactic but these guys are still able to pull this off with their
own style as well as their own original concepts to make this work as well
as it does.Some people have no problem speaking their minds and it is great
to see individuals like that band together to actually accomplish something
unique rather than using that "skill" to rant on message boards like typical
assholes.

IX.) YOUR HAPPY PLACE:
New favorite track on this tape as well as in general.This is one of
those: "Lace up your boots...Were kickin some ass" type of songs.So
of course I already love it.We have a steady ready tempo to prepare
yourself for some pain in your knuckles and blood on your face.There
are some sorta strange pianos/synths that remind me of some kind of
vampyrized theme but it works and it just adds to the bloodlust.The 
vocals are so deviantly spewed forth.In your face and honest.Once again
these guys just straight up tell it like they see it.No sugar coated bullshit.
Just raw reality.A lot of people would find this attitude rude to which I am
sure BLITZKRIEG BABY would just say "Fuck You" but really it just works 
for these guys.The vocalist keeps his vocal style his own and never misses a 
kick-ass beat...And these soldiers march to their own beat through a shroud
of synths and noise.Keep up the good work soldiers.

WAR COMES TO YOUR HOUSE:
