"What a truly terrifying CD! This is an aural mesh of noise, rythms and out right scariness! Definately not for the feign of heart. This is mostly a very textural and noisy release, but it is very visual and graphic. Easily one of the most frightening CDs I have heard in ages. Probably as good for scaring little children as it is for staging disturbing images during your own dream time. Caveat Emptor! http://www.killdevil.com"

"ROGER KARMANIK HAS DONE IT AGAIN. THIS RELEASE IS QUITE A DEPARTURE AND AT THE SAME TIME RIGHT AT HOME IN THE BRIGHTER DEATH NOW DISCOGRAPHY. BEING A LONG TIME FAN OF THIS BAND I'VE GROWN A BIT NUMB TO THE SICK SAMPLES OF CHILD MOLESTATION AND GENERAL ABUSE, BUT THE INTRODUCTION TO THE SONG "LITTLE BABY" STILL GOT ME. ALL IN ALL THIS IS AN EXCELLENT CD, A GOOD INTRODUCTION TO BRIGHTER DEATH NOW OR A MUST HAVE FOR THE FAN. THIS IS ALSO A GOOD TITLE TO LOOK INTO IF YOU'RE A FAN OF NOISE MUSIC AND WANT TO LOOK INTO THE DEATH INDUSTRIAL GENRE. IF YOU LIKE BDN, ALSO LOOK FOR: BLACKHOUSE, GENOCIDE ORGAN, MEGAPTERA,MENTAL DESTRUCTION, TO NAME A FEW, OR CONTACT: COLD MEAT INDUSTRY, TESCO CRGANISATION, OLD EUROPA CAFE, ANT-ZEN."
Harsh and unforgiving

"This is easily the harshest release from Roger Karmanik. Brighter Death Now specializes in all things unpleasant and usually sounds like lost DAT recordings from a horror show. This is a lot scarier than the Blair Witch Project, because not only what you can't see can hurt you, you also can't help but hear it rushing toward you. And while you know BWP was a hoax, you can't help but know this is very real. His first domestic CD, Innerwar is the equivalent of the aural slaughterhouse, of someone pulling his hair out (and then maybe his teeth). Not for the squeamish."
