This is possibly a little austere for Friday morning; It's pooing-out the lad who's unexpectedly popped around to do some decorating. So I'm gonna put it on again a bit louder. The first side is essentially a long, unnerving trek built around dark, ominous meditative drones with the encroachment of time-stretched glossolia and spectral ephemera. This is music for bleedin' Satanists, Ma! There's not much more to say other than this is a profoundly intense sonic experience; beat-less until the last few minutes and then it's a trip into dark ambience, frantic electroid patter,and a moody smoke-screen of sinister acoustics with a blackly cosmic countenance.

Over on t' other side we've first got a slow-grinding rhythmic industrial banger....all stentorian Johnn Balance-like vocals, cyclic noisy scree and Ancient Methods-heavy rumble-beats. Proper megalithic and pulverising shit from these two legendary doyens of harsh UK techno. That's Surgeon and Regis to their Mums. As this is a live album it flows as such, like a blindfolded journey into some scary but exciting recesses of your mind....once the beats cease you find the floor disappears, the vista of terrifying space open up and you are free-falling into a shuddering sonic void.

An escalating tone threatens to drive you hysterical before bursting into a firework of collapsing rubble. The audience shriek and cheer with delight. I wish I had been in attendance.
