great record. Its all about the A side, Tralcore is a pure gem. Get a copy of this, before it gets around 100e and more..

Some spaceship noise opens Tralcore. A double kick then builds up the tension for a good five minutes only to disappear, leaving but the synth layer from below. "He's no good to me dead!" After we are told he will not be permanently dead, all hell breaks loose as the militant 4/4 kickdrum is unleashed in all its fury. "There is no escape!" But really, who would even want to escape? "Don't make me destroy you!" The aggressive, distorted rhythm does just that, however, crushing skulls under its black army boots. The Star Wars samples add another sinister touch, but the low, atmospheric synth layer from the depths makes up for it, somehow creating a soothing balance that is probably the strongest point of the track. By the time Vader commands to release the hate, it has most likely vanished already, leaving the listener cleansed of all negative emotions, focused on surfing the wrath wave.

The B side is bordering on speedcore pace, with Epurator being still alright; Move Back has too many Beastie Boys-like samples. None of those can touch Tralcore.
