ARRANGEMENT/SAMPLING/

TAPE I:

SIDE A.) 
I.) HORROR OF THE TRUTH / II.) THE AMAZING FLYING CARCASS /
III.) SHALLOW GRAVE / IV.) BORED STIFFS / V.) PHANTOM PAINS /
VI.) SCORCHED ABOVE THE BREATH:
SIDE B.)
VII.) WHEN THE SMOKE CLEARS / VIII.) SIGHT FOR SORE EYES /
IX.) THE ELEPHANT MAN / X.) UNTITLED / XI.) UNTITLED:

This isn't quite Grind...It's not really Noise and it is in no way Metal
or Industrial but somehow GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD have managed
to take elements and characteristics of all of the above and mix them
into something pretty damn unique.If I had to compare this to other
artists then I guess I'd have to say that this is sort of similar to the works
of AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, PISS JUNKIE, and maybe kind of close
to stuff like WHOURKR or THE LOCUSTS?...But even that doesn't quit
paint the best picture.This is one you will just have to hear for yourself.
There are no guitars here...Just relentless blasts of programmed drum
and bass cranked up to ten and done at lightspeed along with a fine
collection of raunchy samples that are both offensive and comedic.
And then there are those vocals which are done in the vein of brutal
hardcore meets in your face power violence meets pissed of grindcore
meets metalic and crust punk...Vocally speaking this is in your face stuff
along the lines of DESPISE YOU, BRUTAL TRUTH, INSECT WARFARE,
NASUM,Etc...Side A features six total mindfucks to annihilate the senses.
Synth ambience and wailing noise comes as an introduction which makes
what follows come as a startling surprise.Pummeling attacks of percussion
with the bass cranked up to ten and vocals spewed fourth in short bursts
of pure rage.Like I mentioned before the songs are broken up by samples
that lead you into the next as well as provide you with a short time to 
breath before the next barrage of lung crushing insanity...Side B is even
more relentless as you don't get an intro to prepare you for this audio
massacre.Blast beats at ridiculous speeds,Glitchy rythms and stomping
beats march (or blast) along with utterly pissed screams.The final track
on the B side is actually pretty beautiful with orchestral passages and
earth shattering explosions.Welcome to World War III...By the time
this is over you just may be saying "Goodbye cruel world" yourself.

TAPE II.)

SIDE C.)
I.) KILLING TIME WITH STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY /
II.) ORGAN GRINDER / III.) BRAIN DAMAGE / IV.) COLLAPSED
LUNGS / V.) I'LL SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD / VI.) OUT OF SIGHT,
OUT OF MY FUCKING MIND:
SIDE D.)
VII.) MIND ERASER / VIII.) SEDATIVES AND A LULLABY /
IX.) CONDOLENCE CARD / X.) A SHORT HISTORY OF THE
WORLD:

Tape two offers more of the same with a "If it's not broken why
fix it?" attitude...Or in this case a "It's fucking wrecked...Can't
fix it" approach.Both tapes are short clocking in at ten minutes
each.Consider this a blessing.Anything over ten minutes could
be considered an overdose and the chances of your survival are
minimal at best.Hope your feeling suicidal cause here we go.
A sample of a song from the 1950's skips like a broken record 
and then were off racing at a million miles an hour.Tape two
is much like the first only here it seems even faster somehow.
More samples are utilized here as well making everything seem
a little more chaotic.We go into pounding marching rythms and
war cry screams for a while and then it's back to frenied madness.
There seems to be a little more experimentation with synth samples
and vocal effects here as well...Slight touches of reverb and delay here
and there and stuff like that.One sample repeats for a while and pretty
much sums up what GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD sounds like better than
I ever could by simply saying "He's out of his fucking mind." Side D begins
like a nightmare reflection of side C...All is still a blistering rush of adrenaline
and rage.Drums are played in reverse,Samples are more desperate and hopeless
and all sounds fucking wonderful.The final track is my favorite here.It is much
slower and features haunting synths and huge percussions.This one here could
almost be considered Death Industrial.Explosions feel the sky and all is despondent.
And on that note we end...Hopelessly wrecked and craving more.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF FUCKED UP GLITCHED OUT GRIND
AND NOISE.FOR FANS OF PISS JUNKIE/AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED/APT 213/
ANTIGAMA/WHOURKER/NOISM/GHENGIS TRON/ETC ETC:

8.5/10
