If anyone has a spare cover for me pleas pm. Would be greatly appreciated.
If you appreciate industrial/hardcore and want to experience the same effect but only with a slower tempo, then this cd is for you, the first track is so ambient industrial, then the second track reminds me of Bob Marley, the third track is kinda eerie sounding. All in all this cd made me appreciate illbient, because i was already fond of regular ambient, i kinda needed this one to open my mind even more, ha. Great cd for the open-minded.
"Rystop" by Byzar is the gem here. I find it difficult to appreciate illbient, but this is my pick. Byzar tries to use the letter 'Y' whenever they can, making it difficult to understand the naming of their songs. It is strange that they made such a song, because I bought their album which is not all that great. The rest is not memorable and the dj spooky material is from his album.
This is the definitive compilation of the short-lived but extraordinary Illbient scene that rolled through NYC in the mid-90's; just about the time the name caught hold, everyone ran away from it. Though this album carries the work of four different groups/producers, it flows through like one long dark ride through the underworld, passing abbatoirs, reliquaries, catacombs, and long seas of gloom and lost souls. "Dancehall Malfunction" is one of the heaviest crushing basslines you'll ever hear. Fans of dubstep/grime might be surprised to find that much of it was already done ten years previously.
