This is a CD single. The first part opens in strange and disconnected fragments forcing their way through the silence in sudden, disquietening chunks which jump out at you from nowhere, It sounds like Concrete Music, and undoubtedly uses noise gates to create such disjointed sounds, Parts of it remind me of WILLIAM BURROUGHS' 'tape-pulling' experiments - whiter-than-natural sounds speeding up to sudden cessation, while segments of dissociated whispering voice fade and fall.
The second part is a little more 'composed' in that there is more depth & structure to it, with rhythmic synth tones and 'associated' percussion and instrumentation. It's still a strange, Surreal structure which occasionally threatens to enter 'normality', before running off laughing at such an absurb notion, There's something for everyone in this one track - syndrums sound over a very primative, in mre than one sense of the word, percussive barrage. At one point it becomes a quite melodic Gregorian Chant, before dissolving into harsh noise and strange structure, into bizarre and nightmare soundscapes where Death holds sway. About nine minutes into it, it becomes a repetitive rhythm, over which someone sounding very much like ADI NEWTON chants a phrase.

If you are into BRUME, you will probably want to buy this anyway - if you have never heard them, but are interested - give it a go, or try the above compilation (they have a track on that!). A challenging (& rewarding) noisework.
