Recorded live at the VI Industrial Festival Wroclaw, Poland November 11th, 2007. Released near the end of 2009, my first exposure to this release did not come till January of 2010.
The first track "Restrain And Discover Gist Engagement" begins with a krautrock feel. Almost reminiscent of early Amon Düül, before breaking into an organized chaos held together by glitch layered lumbering beat that delightfully runs the remainder of the track. "Spectacular Geological Fault Line" features a pulsing rhythm, distorted guitars, and floating feedback. Wonderful sounds float in stereophonic splendor as the listener delves deeper into the track before dropping off into the chaos of " Plan To Breed And Domesticate", a chaotic orchestra of noise and analog swirls. The best part of "Plan To Breed And Domesticate" comes near the end when the whole thing delves into a sci-fi feel before tapering off into oblivion.
The CD quiets down a bit with "Disasters Are The Aftermath Of God's Fury", a mostly atmospheric track, featuring acoustic guitars and sax and slowly building to a rhythmic ending, "Disasters..." is anything but, it's a beautiful piece that is perhaps the best track on the CD. It followed by more chaos with "Invasion Of Earth By A Malevolent Horde" and "Recovery Of The Irrevocable Star". "Invasion Of Earth By A Malevolent Horde" is a trip to hell. Very similar to early Sigillum S in style. Groans and static grow until one feels they can take no more... then they subside into the darkness where "Recovery Of The Irrevocable Star" picks up.
"Here Not" begins in a rather traditional ambient manner but slowly builds to tribal drums, and eventually headphone testing noises... All the while unearthly groans (no human, perhaps produced by a violin?) swell through out giving this piece the feeling of traveling through Dante's Inferno.
Things pick up for the last two tracks. "Gnostic Circles" has an almost chaotic funky feel to it, before delving into chaos and "Persian Axiomatic" has a middle eastern flavor promised in it's title but eventually succumbs to it's industrial roots.
Brilliant release that captures the bands performance beautifully. Highly recommended.
