I.) VIOLENCE II.) VOMIT / III.) DESTRUCTION /
IV.) MAYHEM / V.) TORTURE / VI.) PESTILENCE:

Like the song titles this small run release is short 
and to the point but sometimes those end up containing
some of the best stuff when it comes to violent, underground
music.PHANTASM NOCTURNES has been terrorizing people with horror
themed harsh noise and experimental electronics for some time now
and this particular release is no exception."Violence" builds slow
on dark ambient passages filled with brutal real life samples of
domestic abuse requested with consent and narrations from a self
loathing girl with no self worth.Dense static clouds around the
samples like a cloud of negative energy come to brew up a storm
of painful memories until the samples become a hazy cacophany.
Like being in a crowded room where doctors surround a patient
in absolute agony while chilling winds swarm outside cold windows.
The sounds of wretching and vomit splattering can be heard and were
not even to the track titled "Vomit" yet.Things turn darker as satanic
rites of initiation take place.The initiate weeps while declaring devotion
to the regions of Hell.Blasts of rumbling static come and go and objects
clatter until were back to heaving and vomiting.Creepy whispers and horrid
shrieks bring it all to a close and then were off to the second bout of
sickness."Vomit" is a dark and moody ambient piece at first with timed
blasts of noise and spoken samples concerning hard drugs, gang bangs and
sodomy until a distorted blasts takes us into a slow frenzy of wet sounds.
Gagging and choking as chunks of filth soak the room.This sounds utterly
disgusting.You can almost smell what these sick fucks had for lunch.Harsh
tones and moaning electronic drones form a frame around a picture of a long,
slow death.This track is a plague of vile sounds with high pitched electronic
chirps and confessions of incest and whoredom."Destruction" starts with a loud
mess of electronic fuckery.It sounds like a mass of live wires going haywire.
Industrial percussions and punchy blip drums guide us into rhythmic noise laced
in heavy distortion.Pulses and feedback tear your room apart and bass-filled 
synths mow down anything that's left.It is clear that PHANTASM NOCTURNES has
come to wreck your shit.The amps are cranked up to ten and broken glass is
flying everywhere.Swarming masses of noise become broken engines revving and
choking until "Mayhem" starts.Large slabs of noise slide in like plates beneath
the earths crust as hazy samples of suffering and madness begin.Pulsing drones
are heard for brief periods until they are assaulted by huge bursts of pure static.
Grinding electronics come and go all the while the sounds of human carnage fill the
air.Multitudes of women scream as they die of panic and mutilation.Blades are sharpened
and mental patients try in vain to comfort themselves as the madness continues.Sounds
similar to spinning blades rotate as dreary ambiance drifts under screams of death until
they are cut short like the lives of those making them."Torture" strikes out with harsh
high end tones that fade into thick electronics and churning pools of sub-bass.Samples
of a woman torturing a frantic man with no remorse are heard and seperated by harsh blasts.
The girl seems to take pleasure in the slow killing which gives the track a dark erotic vibe.
Disorienting noise and static send you into a blank state of mind like being a fly on the wall.
Helpless to do anything to help the victim's situation but it seems like he deserved it anyways.
It's hard not to laugh as he cries like a bitch towards the end.Horror noise often sounds cheesey,
but PHANTASM NOCTURNES execute it in such a grim and relentless manner that it works perfectly.The
last track, "Pestillence" crashes through as a harsh mass of static and rumbling electronics as
noise like rushing winds obliterate everything in their path.Cords are unplugged and left to buzz
and noise like moths hitting a bug zapper fills the spaces.This entire track is just a mess of 
humming electronics.Pure energy with no compromises.No samples are present.Just straight power
that speaks for it'self.
