Track A2 ends in a locked groove.

The colors on the artwork for this released were inversed in the production process. (White became black and vice versa.)
Fucking Ants was not actually sequenced, but is an unsteadily fired loop of a kickdrum.Therefore the BPM often drifts making the track difficult to mix.
Fucking Ants was mastered from a TDK D60 cassette recording.

Somewhat simple looking release by The Outside Agency, but that's because this is a pretty old one. This one is their first real industrial release, in the style they still produce nowadays (ofcourse changed alot, but you know, the darkness hehe)

Cyphre's Theory has very deep kicks with an amazing synth that somehow sounds very screamy. The buildup is huge also. Imagine those deep hard pounding kicks on a huge sound system. Holy!

Metal Slug really became one of my favourite tracks from The Outside Agency. Not because it's pretty rough or complex, like most of their newer tracks, but because it's so frightening dark. One of their darkest tracks till now i reckon.

Fucking Ants is real industrial slow hardcore. Pretty slow but pretty squeeky. Cool kick effects. Better then the new Motherfucking Ants remakes on Genosha 7.

The Prophet Of Rage is also very industrial sounding, but also with a higher speed. Much higher. Cool track also, and really setting a new way of style TOA would hand 2 years after this release.

I suggest checking this vinyl just for the pure dark atmospheres and ofcourse, as a TOA fanatic, this is a must have!
