Is The Wish the greatest Hardcore Gabber track ever written? Yes, yes it is.

My favourite sub-genre of Hardcore is the 1994-1997 Gabber sound with its tearing Alpha Juno riffs, head nodding 909 kickdrums and interesting samples. Most tracks were either called Hardcore Motherfucker, Motherfucking Hardcore or Hard Motherfucking Core. Ruffneck Records is probably the best example of this style. However an incredibly talent artist from Amsterdam beat Ruffneck at their own game. His name is Michel Klaassen. Michel was signed to another well known label called Mokum and released several good records under the name Tellurian. Teaming up with Hellraiser Records, he set up his own label called Cenobite Records. Oh my god, every release on Cenobite was amazing, the quality in production was a notch above everybody else in the scene, the record covers were cool and all those Horror movie samples, perfect. The crowning glory however was when Michel and his underrated friend Rodney Balai produced the label's 2nd release, The Wish. With an ominous intro from The Outer Limits and a sampled kickdrum from Mokum label mates, Flamman and Abraxas, The Wish is an orgy of stunning Alpha Juno synth riffs and Acid 303's, its almost like Psy Trance and Hardcore coming together. Michel has stated that this is the best track he ever wrote, he's wrong, its the best Gabber track ever.

Dark Shadow starts off with some intense sirens, however the main melody is the Acid section and its highly corrosive! The secondary synth is a twisted dark melody and harsh background synth, the middle of the track has a more Tellurian feel to it, simple but effective. Excellent B-Side track. The Mind Is A Labyrinth is a hard Gabber tune, the main synth riff is wonderfully dark and expertly executed, the fast pace sprinkling riff adds more flavour to the track. Great finish to the vinyl.

The record cover is inspired by Michel Klaassen's interest in Aliens and UFOs. I paid a lot of Dutch Guilders for this record and it was totally worth it. Simply amazing music.

All tracks on this album are great but "Mind is a labyrinth" is just on another level, composition, sounds... its trully a relentless march towards the pits of the burning hell, driving forwards from start to end, the beat-less buildup parts are really hyping and quite short so the track doesnt loose the pace at any moment. Drops are deep and full on, start and ending are DJ friendly... one of the best if not the best track on Cenobite records and in my opinion one of the best tracks ever created in this style.

I cannot begin to understand why nobody has yet commented on this fabulous gem here. The sound is true Cenobite - dark, driving and Juno-induced. The acid lines swirl all over the place making you feel like you're racing through outerspace inside the UFO shown on the cover. This is a true alien slammer and one of the finest Cenobite moments in my opinion. Don't miss it!
