8/10 Phil Staff review, 28 April 2011
The cover on this thing is well early Nurse with Wound. I can't even work out what's going on there but there's half an axe, something in a suit and some books. The back of the sleeve features the something in a suit which has half melted. It's appealing to me but only cos I don't understand it and want to. This comprises three hard to find volumes of HPK's output and a bonus of their split cassette with Last. The majority of these were super hard to find. Should you have heard of them before and are wanting to chase up some of their output then now you can as Basses Frequences have lovingly compiled this onto a 2 disc set. Anyway this is dark experimental stuff reminding me of early Coil and Nurse with Wound. It's quite cinematic in it's approach as you feel like you're listening to the soundtrack to some dark strange avant-garde film. Occasionally it gets a bit tonal on your ass (which I struggled with) but the general feel of the album is listenable and varied. It's not for everyone but if you're into experimental compositions with a slight industrial twang about 'em then check this mother out.
