"Six grave and solemn yet effervescent takes on modern industrial and ambient techno with thick layers of static and fuzz recorded in one take with a minimal approach to computer processing."

"Hard on the heels of that incredible Prurient side, Blackest Ever Black introduce Alexander Lewis to the fold with this maiden LP of bitter industrial electronics and "S-M Techno". Recorded in one take with minimal computer processing or post-production, its blinkerdly linear construction, billowing feedback clouds and glazed stare instantly and strongly reminds of Hospital Productions' criminally underrated Kris Lapke aka Alberich, which is high praise indeed. A paucity of elements are optimised to effect, using only microphone, synth and pedals to create the arpeggiated tunnel waves of 'The Third Room' and the glowering noise and drone domination of 'Black Thread' or 'Mirror Fragment', but the trip really starts to kick in with the lip-bitingly sexy noise of 'She Demands Attention' on the flip, and the strobing, high-frequency wraiver 'Figure Moving', whilst 'Winter Flower' dons black gloves and places the final grip of cold, choking noise and moistened flange."
