SHEER MADNESS! I am flabbergasted! I hardly dare to imagine the magnitude of the work required to produce such a masterpiece. One must have bothered to listen to this with a headphone of good quality audio to realize the exceptional engineering of the sound that the artist offers us. The result exceeds expectations. Because the EXTRAORDINARY RENDER OF STEREO AND FREQUENCY CALIBRATION vibrates the textured sounds in a vast 3D space, from our ears to our toes to awaken us to unusual sensations!

Kid’s memories – they haunt like wild hounds, persecute in dreams and execute their unknown goals till the final bell tolls. Then, there, again, with every passage through these familiar places I fall into disorientation, my vertigo increases, breath sporadically quickening – they are here, they appear as large structures in the clearing, speaking in the elementary language of silence and decay. Monsters out of time with inanimate coral-like metal webs, dead but dreaming cthulhoid relatives on the ground calling me voicelessly, dissolving my selves till I surrender…scare me not, scare me not!
Iron elementals braided with iconic cosmogonies – corrosion eaten machines from soviet era, betrayed, forgotten, despiritualized. What can they tell to me, what spells do their amuletic screws still possess ? Carefully I crawl with ears open, all my senses tense in almost orgiastic state, seduction is inevitable! Low hum and creaks! Chtulhu speaks! Scare me not, scare me not…
In awe I operate in devastated state with esoteric surgical instruments of sonar knowledge extracting, deconstructing and re-constructing again the digital phonic golem to fight my phantasmal childhood hounds. Rhythm and incantation, low drone and colourless all-negation. Swarm of rust lifted by the wind from gasoline saturated ground. Scare me not, scare me not…
