It's hard to pick one, but Atheama could possibly be THE BIGGEST HARDCORE TRACK of them all. And Seance on the flip is brilliant too.

Nebula II were renowned for their hard & dark releases and there's no exception here.

Seance/Atheama is their debut release and the one that was played in all the raves in 1991 and the early part of 1992.

Wouldn't quite describe any of these two tracks as jungle but more of a hardcore techno sound with breakbeats UK style. I can hear the influence these tunes must have had on the development of jungle, in fact some of Nebula IIs following releases were more "jungle" sounding - but always had a major slammin' techno influence.

Seance borrows Stone Roses - Fool's Gold drum break which has been sampled by countless of other artists but works remarkably well in this stormer, added drum production with real beefy basslines, sound effects, well dark, psychotic mish-mash electric shock sound which is undescribable, and a chorus break of "Black Riot - A Day In The Life" sounding riff but much darker of course.

Atheama is probably the more well known of the two tracks though, and the one which was slaughtered by all the djs back in the day for good reason.

It starts off with the sampled intro bleeps from LFOs - LFO & A Homeboy. Hippie & Funky Dredd - Total Confusion, chanted vocal sample, before this screeching, chaotic riff & massive, and I mean massive, thundering, stompin' 808 break beat kicks in and all hell is let loose! Very busy track which doesn't let you rest for a second, played at peak time causing maximum karnage. Classic old skool which you shouldn't do without.
