I.) PERCHED ON THE BOUNDARIES OF THE CITY:
If I ever take part in a protest ralley, I am just gonna show
up and blast this on the biggest stereo I can find until I get
my fucking way.This album is punishing.I'm sure you have
all heard the rumors about the United States government
using Skinny Puppy records as a method of torture.If it was
up to me...I'd pop in this cd and crank it past the thresholds.
But enough of that...Moving on...So we begin on the edge of
the city...Here we gather, lock and load and get wait for the
right time to strike.After the initial blast of static and distortion,
it begins to feel like the immense static in this track is the growing
static in the air.Fear and excitement.This is the sound of nerves on
end...Anxious patience...The realization that the time to act is now
and there is no turning back.Both intese and soothing at the same 
time.Like knowing that the events that are about to take place will
not be easy, but they will also soon be over at last.Just in case you have
failed to realize this by now...This album is total Harsh Noise Wall.There
is structure but no melody.Rythm but no drumming.Distortion but no guitar.
What we have here are four straight up noise fests that mirror the violence 
and brutallity of guerrilla warfare.The time has come to break the mirrors,
march through streets of broken glass, and attack.No mercy.

II.) ASCEND, ATTACK, AND APPREHEND:
One thing that seperates Guerrilla from the countless other HNW
albums that have popped up over the last few years is that here each
track is different.It feels like each track serves a purpose and acts as
a chapter in a story.Rather than just being noise for the sake of making
noise, SWALLOWING BILE is noise that makes a statement.HNW that
urges the listener to take up arms and march in resistence as well as
providing a soundtrack of total devestation.Severe electronics as a
means to an end.Crunching electronics neath a uniform of dense
distortions.This is not music for enjoyment...This is sonic warfare.
Each track provides the listener with over ten minutes of punishment
to condition them for the harsh realities that await outside their front
door.Track two comes like a cloud of riot gas choking the life out of
everything and everyone within reach.Churning through the haze of
smoke and gas like the wheels of a tank and just as heavy.With track
two we march through the city streets, Capture the opposition and
prepare them to be transported to the next stage of the mission.Now
is the time to do what we came here to do.

III.) HOSTAGES EXECUTED BY THE RIVER:
SWALLOWING BILE are not playing around.The time has come for
them to show that they mean business and will stop at nothing to
realize their goal.Track three is my favorite of the four walls that
surround and also the longest.This one is a harsh frenzy of swarming
electronic rage.That moment when you are lined up for execution and
the reality of the situation becomes crystal clear.That reality being that
your flesh is being torn to shreds by high caliber machine guns fired off
by faceless men with no remorse.This track also flows like the river that
your corpse is thrown in.Easy disposal and a quick way to wash this place
clean.This grinds in your ears with the power of rushing whitewater rapids.
So far it seems like track one was the loudest but this by no means takes
away from the effect the rest of these have on the listener.And that effect
is that this will fucking floor you.The world is lucky that there were only
twenty copies of this album pressed.I can only imagine the devestation
that would follow massive worldwide exposure to something like this.
For the first time in my life I actually have the desire to see an HNW
act perform live.I really hope that SWALLOWING BILE rolls through 
California sometime soon.

IV.) MONUMENTS DESECRATED, ARCHIVES DESTROYED:
Now that no one is in our way...No one there to make a stand or attempt
to defend whatever bullshit brought us to these desperate acts...It is time
to erase all traces of what once was from the face of the earth.The last track
here is an almighty monolithic wall that wipes through like a storm and eradicates
any structures that have managed to survive the assaults that came before it.This is
the sound of burning buildings.The sound of debris filling the air and smoke filling
the lungs of any who may have managed to hide out.Every imprint that once was is
to be burnt.Statues are toppled.Flags are shredded and towers are torn asunder.It only
takes SWALLOWING BILE thirteen minutes to utterly destroy what once stood here.
At less than five minutes in...A huge cloud of ash rushes across the streets as everything
is demolished.Quite some time later the ground begins to quake as explosions finish the
job and leave nothing but shrapnel and destruction in their wake.We depart as the roaring
fires fade to embers.What comes next is up to us.

BRUTAL HNW THAT HOLDS YOUR ATTENTION AND ENCOURAGES ACTION.
