8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 14 March 2014
This LP has four collaborative tracks between Russian electronic darksters Love Cult and Druss from Gnod, with a couple of non-collaborative tracks each as well. It's pretty hard to tell where their individual work ends and the collaboration begins though. I've just made the mistake of reading the press release and it's pretty much already said everything I want to say in this review. Have a look at that and make my job easier.
Anyway, what you'll find on here is hypnotic and darkly psychedelic electronics full of buzzing drones and distant muffled voices, a kind of melty deformed mixture of dark ambient, trip-hop and techno buried under a miasma of wire-wool clouds, it's not so much hostile as perpetually unsettling, a constant unresolved tension. I've enjoyed this, good quality nocturnal spook outs with hints of bunker techno bleakness. Apparently there's some less oppressive stuff on the digital extras but I don't really do digital extras.
