III.) OPEN SEASON (THIS IS W.A.R.) / IV.) THE SHOT HEARD
ROUND THE WORLD:

LONE WOLF INSURGENT return with a solo release showcasing the 
project alone and in full swing. Here we really get to see LWI
as a stand alone entity in action. "Spiritual Chains" opens the
tape escorts us into the first round of an intense four track
thrashing. A low ambient resonance expands bringing with it
spoken samples concerning rebellion and retaliation on a 
racial scale. Low roaring distortion follows as the speech
continues to be recited in an attempt to spring fourth a
resistance and eventually a call to arms that would erupt
into a race war the likes we have not seen in our lifetime.
Distant thundering and clattering is heard like a cloud burst
followed by a corrosive rain of hail and debris that slowly
erodes the senses and leaves us open for the first real assault.
"Defeat Never, Victory Forever" opens with samples as well. This
time slightly more political in nature. Shifting rhythms like massive
stone slabs grinding upon one another repeat in a cyclic manner creating
a throbbing pulse. Feedback and bitter screams in a rasped tone of rage
pour out like molten flame and magma spewing from the mouth of a volcano
and then all Hell breaks loose. Roaring Harsh Noise comes in a landslide
of aggression to match and mirror the enraged vocalizations. A war machine
awakening and beginning it's campaign of slaughter in a stand against it's
enemy. Looped feedback and noise rhythms are heard somewhat buried in the 
onslaught. Their are brief pauses barley long enough to catch your breath
in between beatings. Each attack comes more furious and merciless than the
last. LONE WOLF INSURGENT mean business and are not here to fuck around.
This is by far one of the angriest and most passionate Power Electronics
releases I've heard in years. Opening samples are repeated and looped until
the next barrage where the vocals pick up and continue the mantra along a
war zone of cacophonous controlled chaos. "Open Season (This Is W.A.R.)"
opens with glitched/fragmented electronic experimentation and spoken samples
of a Black female talking about killing all white men. The following is most
certainly an anthem of retaliation. Again a call to arms to stand up for ones
self if they happen to have been born in a position where they may need to do
so. Machine gun blasts and distorted quakes form a backdrop for the vocals which
are harsh shouts and dry throat screams with a voice like gravel. The lyrics as
expected concern a defiant retaliation against the previous threats. The song 
unfolds like a grand drama that we'd expect to be from countless decades before
our time. Hate is very much alive in America. Spoken samples, This time a Black
male, Speak phrases like "It's not safe no more to be white in America." LWI
counters with "This is White Aryan Resistance, This is war." "The Shot Heard
Round The World" closes the album and opens with spoken samples of an Aryan 
resistance type meeting where an address from one party member to his peers 
is heard. Afterwards we're met by cold ambiance under harsh noise elements.
Feedback, Distortion, Everything you'd expect but cranked up to ten and then
some. The vocals here somehow sound more pissed off and fed up than the previous 
tracks which is really saying something. Spoken samples similar to those that opened
the album are heard along a battlefield of sound. Pedals mimic mortar fire and the
screeching of tank treads against a jagged terrain. The battle is raging on and reaching
it's peak. Various samples are tossed into the mix creating a blur of information transmitted
amidst chaotic aggression. Closing samples bring the album themes full circle and serve as a
good end note for an album of this nature. Not for the faint of heart or the easily offended.
If keeping things politically correct is your thing then don't even bother with this one.

LONE WOLF INSURGENT'S BEST RELEASE TO DATE. IF THIS IS THE CALIBER LWI HAS
REACHED IN THIS SHORT TIME THEN THE FUTURE WILL CERTAINLY BRING SOME GREAT
WORKS FROM THIS PROJECT:

8/10
