XII.) EPILOGUE - MIND LIKE A KNIFE:

LIMBS BIN at face value seems like your standard one man Harsh Noise/Power Electronics
prpject. A handful of releases and perhaps another face in an oversaturated crowd. So
what seperates LIMBS BIN from the masses and endless hordes of noise lords in the 
underground? What makes LIMBS BIN stand out in the crowd and why should you listen 
to this? The answer is simple. LIMBS BIN has a fury and an energy that would be quite
hard to match. A project that is electric in more ways than one and on this tape we
hear this in full swing. This is a great place to start for both projects present here
but LIMBS BIN especially shines on this one. So what we have is a dozen songs or themes
composing what feels more like one solid piece. High end signals rip through the room
over dread inducing drones as scattered, Cut-up and rabid vocals come as harsh distorted
rasps in quick jabs and stabs. "Wet" electronics ascend and drop in tones and textures 
that bring to mind ATRAX MORGUE's Sickness Report album. Warped and wavering pulses
create rifts and gateways to utter madness. At times the vocals sound like they are
being delivered from the jaws of a bone munching beast. Circular patterns at varying
speeds create an unstable atmosphere that causes disorientation and uncertainty. The
vocal treatments are heavy doses of caustic distortion that creates an audio yin-yang
against the backdrop of Noise on the experimental side. Spacey synth dirges create a
feeling of drifting through infinite nothingness as some deranged lunatic screams
unintelligable threats and poetry right in your fucking face. At other times oscillating
feedback (Which eventually breaks into a writhing mass of electrical aggression) and 
throbbing synths serve as the platform for the vocals (Which are still an all out barrage
on the senses) to be delivered. The recording quality is absolutely raw and DIY with a very
90's Power Electronics feel to them. Don't confuse raw or DIY for poor however as everything
is audible and pretty balanced. Blown out screams are kind of a staple in the genre so there
is no problem there. Blasting vocal outburts that become a bleedy throat Black Metal croak
end the LIMBS BIN side with even more ferocity than we began with.

SIDE B.) PISS JUNKIE (FEATURING FLESH TRADE):
I.) PISS POLICE / II.) PISSING ON CRUSTIES / III.) YOU'RE LUCKY IF YOU GET 4 MINUTES /
IV.) PRECIOUS PISS MOMENTS / V.) UNFILTERED / VI.) PISS GERM DEFEATING SPERM / VII.)
YA'LL DON'T LOVE US? / VIII.) PISSBURGH, PA / IX.) PISS BIN / X.) IT'S DRAINING MEN /
XI.) PISS BY NATURE, JUNKIE BY CHOICE / XII.) BLAZING UP A PISS BLUNT / XIII.) SUPER
SOAKER / XIV.) POND MILK:

PISS JUNKIE is a project that I am a little more familiar with and one that has never
failed to deliver the goods before. This collection of songs demonstrate PISS JUNKIE
doing what PISS JUNKIE does, And that is offering up abrassive, Short length/Full throttle 
Noisecore/Digital Hardcore that hangs a little closer to the Harsh Noise side than most.
Basically think Grindcore done with Noise gear and a drum machine. Like LIMBS BIN, It is
extremely Lo-fi and raw with a similar DIY Punk attitude in terms of production/Recording
quality. This is the extreme underground so if you're reading this you've gotta have some
idea of what you're getting here...Unless you are new to all this and in that case, Rest
in piss my friend...Acording to the liner notes this side features a project called FLESH
TRADE that I am not too familiar with but it looks like we're in for an aural gang bang so
strap the fuck in cowboy. "Piss Police" kicks things off and beats us into pulsating synths
that are soon nearly completely consumed by blasting programmed blast beats at ridiculously
inhuman speeds and rough grunts and deep rasps. Cut-Up style noise is featured here which
is new for PISS JUNKIE and I am gonna go out on a urine soaked limb and guess that this is
FLESH TRADE's doing. There are more sounds and textures here than I can keep up with or
even attempt to put into words. Dripping synth tones, Harsh blasts, Glitching electronic
fuckery and every manner of high end shrill terror. Walls of dense noise expand as frantic
live wire energy sparks in every direction...Basically this shit is probably hazzardous to
your health in more ways than you'd want to know. After the Cut-up assault and some other
shit we do have a pretty cool Experimental Noise style interlude type thing that serves 
as an extended outro. This is a project that was innactive for quite some time so it is 
awesome to see PJ back in action and still as badass as ever. Oscilating drones take over 
and soar as the other textures struggle to regain their dominance only to be chopped into 
bits by feedback and utter sonic weirdness. A mangled mess of bizare sounds carry us into 
an abrupt silence. Total piss overdose. A bit different for PJ which is interesting. Definitely
pulled it off so no complaints there.

THIS IS ONE OF THOSE SHORT TAPE RELEASES THAT YOU CAN FLIP OVER AND OVER AND LISTEN TO
ON REPEAT ALL DAY WITHOUT GETTING TIRED OF IT. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED FOR THE NOISE
FREAKS:
