INSERT COMPLETE WITH FULL ARTWORK AND LYRICS.
LIGATURE IMPRESSION IS:
I.) OH! DEATH TO NANCY / II.) PEEPING PETALS /
III.) BEYOND THE NOTCH I:
This one's a creeper.Not just this track but the entire
album.There is something seriously wrong with Mr. N.
Desuah and we can't get enough of it."Slaves To Our
Senses" tells the story of a man who deals with murderous
tendancies and a hardcore foot fetish from the point of view
of a poetic philospher.Both the music and lyrics are absolutely
gorgeous.Highly detailed and utterly thought provoking.There
are a lot of albums described as transcending and over half the
time this is used to describe some half-assed watered down indie
rock top of the pop charts bullshit...But here this is actually acurate.
This will remove you from your self and drop you off terrified and
shitting yourself in the darkest corners of your own fucked up mind.
Side A begins with phased out electronics and low drones.Sampled
voices of a 911 emergency call add another layer of hopelessness to
an already bleak field of sound.This fades out serving as an intro and
is soon replaced by moaning synth drones.Deep and deadly.Winds blow
like the tide crashing against the shore followed by vocals that come in
a whispered croak.It sounds like a predator narrating his plans before he
acts them out.This is some fucking dark shit and when I say dark shit I
mean pitch black...Like everything you know and love has been eclipsed
by the shadow of this menacing stranger standing in your doorway.Slight
touches of feedback fill the air with nocturnal sounds like the drone of
crickets in the night.Next we hear what sounds like the muffled speech
of a small group, females, coming from a room away.They are quickly
taken hostage by waves of disorienting synth drones that climb and fall
like moths with wet wings struggling to reach the sky in desperation.The
vocals are spoken in a malignant tone laced in phaser effects that give them
a sinister and inhuman quality.This ends side one...Let's see what dark fantasies
await us with the B side.
IV.) I CAN'T REMEMBER THE COLORS / V.) BEYOND THE NOTCH II:
Bubbling electronics like the dripping foam from a rabid dog's jaws.
Spoken samples of a criminal confessing to and describing his methods
of bondage and captivity...His calm tone and casual demeaner only add
to an eerieness that "Slaves to our Senses has established since it's start.
I am almost positive that GNAW THEIR TONGUES used a sample from
this same confession on the "An Epiphanic Vomiting of Blood" album.
Next we shift into some truly strange warped electronic rhythms and
rolling waves of deep bass filled synths.It sounds like someone is banging
on garbage cans during the early moments of a thunder storm somewhere
in the distance.Metal squeals as it is scraped across the ground.This track
has an almost nauseating effect...Like seasickness only worse because the
ground is spinning.Things fluctuate in intensity but the noise never totally
dies down.A swarming haze of billowing static joined by thick strands of
wind rush out and almost take over the track for a while.Harsh rhythms of
dense and crackling distortion spill into the atmosphere and make it toxic.
This has a familiar feeling to it but at the same time it's unique.Slow and
dreary as fuck but never stale or boring.It all ends when everything fades
into silence and you are left alone with the thoughts LIGATURE IMPRESSION
BRILLIANTLY SINISTER.DEATH INDUSTRIAL THAT SOUNDS LIKE
IT WAS CREATED BY A NIGHT STALKER WITH A LONG HISTORY
OF SADISTIC VIOLENCE.WE ALL THINK OF THINGS THAT WOULD
BE HIGHLY ILLEGAL TO ACT OUT.LIGATURE IMPRESSION USE THIS
TO CREATE A PITCH BLACK WORLD OF SHADOWS WHILE BRINGING
DARK FANTASIES TO LIFE IN DISTURBING CLARITY:
