    It is a feat for music artistes to sustain the interest of his audience for even 20 minutes, let alone past the 40th-minute mark. Keiji Haino, the fearless, fearsome, experimental maestro goes the whole way TWICE in an album. Track 1 has cymbals clashing and tambourines ringing to rhythmic, pounding drums. Bass here is so deep it creates a chasm, with feedback and EMS-like loops and other odd special effects echoing throughout. It's a rumbling space-age ultra-modern drone-suite that positively crushes everything in its path.

    Track 2 features Keiji moaning to violins or harmoniums that wail sadly and off-tune, akin to the soundtrack to the sadistic movie by Takeshi Miike, "Audition". Like many of Keiji's great works, his powerful use of dissonances to create an unsettling and eerie ambience is extended to infinity here. It tests the listener's patience with the deliberately jarring notes. Like the excellent black album cover designed by Stephen O'Malley, Keiji drenches all in thick, blackened, drone sludge with this opus magnum.

    Hold on tight.
