Tortured, Tormented- A Pleasure To Listen To

"Once again the amazing vocal talent of Diamanda Galas presents the listener with a challenging work. There are no real songs in a traditional sense but musical movements of the mind communicating with the vocal cords. The use of vocal processing, especially reverb and delay, is ingenious. Not only do the effects enhance but they also assist in carrying the work, adding space and an air of clausterphobia, to its inevitable violent conclusion.The listener is subjected to the most contorted and abusive shrieks that one can imagine. At times gentle and others sounding like a horde of various animals being beaten with hammers.This recording is as near as a well connected mind can come to being in the state of disconnection.Truly, a beautiful display of what the human voice can achieve."

"Well this is an album of screams, groans and other assorted noises that cannot be described. I know that all Diamandas records have a strong message but on this one it's hard to find. If you want to her the full capabilities of her voice or simply want to scare your friends senseless this is the album to get. If you want something that you can stand listening to all the way through whitout getting a headache and need of theraphy I suggest some of her other albums like the singer, Malediction & prayer. when it comes to the pure vocal stuff i prefer Vena Cava. I pretty much only listen to this one or two tracks at a time. but i'm still glad I own it for those REALLY bad days."
Do be careful...

"Make no mistake, this is a totally mindblowing record. More proof that Ms. Galas is an incredibly gifted vocalist, and more proof that she has a knack for capturing the psyche's state in horrible situations... but let me warn you now, while it says "Play At Maximum Volume" on the liner TURN YOUR STEREO DOWN DURING TRACK 8 !!!! It blew out my speakers, and it will do it to yours. I looked at the levels on various equipment and Track 8 (Hepar) slams them to the maximum and keeps them there. BE WARNED."
