CD Reviews

Half-hearted Industrial fans need not apply
Frosty Cold One | Seattle, WA USA | 09/23/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of CB's most clamorous productions (and almost entirely without vocals).
Track 2 [C.U.M.] is one of the noisiest tracks in recorded history -- total chaos.
Track 3 [Colostomia] actually has a catchy beat, once you get about 4 minutes into the song; their choice of vocals (is it a sample of the Islamic call to prayer?) makes it unique, unlike any song i've heard in the genre.
Track 4 [Incineration] is comparatively calm, and beautiful in an eerie way.
Track 5 [Enter Vena Cave]: oddly enough, a track starting out just like this one on their 2-cd release "Inanition" is also called Incineration.
Track 6 [Goiter Song] is the spotlight track of the CD, especially if you like trains. Somehow the boys distorted the sound of a passing freight train and made it into a tune. *Genius!*
Track 7 [Chambers of Skin]: Where have i heard this before? Laibach maybe? Least interesting track...
Track 8 [The Wrenching] is 'old school' industrial.
Track 9 [Regurgitation] is louder than Extreme Noise Terror.
The final track [The Drowning] is apparently the same as the version on their 2-cd "Inanition." A serene way to end an otherwise ear-piercing collection of tracks.This CD is a must-have for followers of the band, or for any hardcore industrialist. It's less melodic and more of a sonic assault than most of their other releases, but it has real personality.
Note that there's only 53 minutes of music on the CD, and it leaves you wanting a couple more tracks.
As is the case with many of CB's albums, this one is meant to be played at the loudest volume your neighbors will tolerate; exercise caution not to blow your loudspeakers, though."
