I'm very drawn to the front cover artwork of this digipak. What appears to be an an undated illustration of a man about to slaughter a beast with an axe > except the mans face is the beasts face and the beast wears the mans face! The last thing the human race needs right now is more war but, alas, that is virtually guaranteed to happen at some point. Maybe the first thing the human race needs right now is the New Blockaders! Thank fuck for these guys, honestly! Active within the deepest cells of the underground, they have remained a constant force for years un-countable on mere fingers. Their contribution to this CD (Awesome to know that Northern England's cult Hypnogogia label is still active BTW!) is gloriously screwed up. Abrasive, intrusive, thrilling, harsh, brain frazzling etc. All boxes can be ticked. The last few minutes of the second TNB track is just fucking immense - pure ecstasy, and then, well things just get better, distorted to immense levels! Insane low-end bass and harsh noise frequencies fill the space, huge slivers of spiky, glassy sound. aNoMali is the artist that ends the assault with observant samples and a huge pulsating beast of a sound which makes me feel like I've been been dunked into a red hot chip pan. All of a sudden massive shards, almost like huge sheets of pure sound are accosting me. A huge, dominant pulsing frequency sits menacingly, all laser-like, beneath unfathomable noises that create their own internal rhythms. Mental!
