This schizophrenic compilation rises like an angst-ridden phoenix from the ashes of a city that is no more. It starts out in desolate minimalistic dark ambient territory; partially torn down buildings stretching their crumbled facades like skeletal fingers towards the bleak sky, grasping after contrails of departed bombers. Much like the survivors reappearing in the streets from their shelters, the tension increases as built up rage and sorrow spills out in grinding pulses and growling screams into more traditional industrial realms, sprinkled with a bit of noise. The ambient half suits me the best and is the part to leave the haunting impressions.
