The audio on this vinyl disc was originally recorded on digital equipment. We have attempted to preserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of its high resolution however, comparison to the digital original can reveal the limitations of this vinyl version.

All tracks finish on a lock groove requiring the stylus to be re-set after each track. Track A1 has looped audio in its lock groove. Side B has space on the vinyl after each track/lock groove with the track title etched into it as shown in the matrix information below.
The record has no label on either side.

A fantastic harsh noise release because not only is the sound design fantastic and the vinyl pressed really, really well, but there's so much more than grating distortion for a little over half an hour (on the vinyl edit at least). There's tons of musical quality in all the tracks, and each is a standout imo. Also, it's deceptively abrasive. I mean, it is definitely harsh, like really harsh, but yet it's so hypnotic and meditative in a way. I actually dozed off to this record one time. Kinda a life changing experience if you've done it.

I suggest, this release has the potential to be a tiny "avantgarde" record. Never heard this forms of abstract noises before. Very hard to put it into a style category, would say it is between Industrial and a kind of "minimal broken hardcore" sound. It would be interesting what real avantgarde bands (in their earlier times) like Einstürzende Neubauten or Cabaret Voltaire would have an opinion about the music...
