is a good and varied compilation CD from Dragon Flight Records (Now Beauty
opening track from Terror
a great opener. Dark power electronics with sparse melody and strong simple
Track 2 from Axone is a bit darker, Rich deep tones go to generate a great
undulating drone sound here. It develops into some extremely powerful
soundscapes with some nice voice samples over the top. This is top quality
Track 3 from When
Joy Becomes Sadness is
extremely noise orientated and confrontational, very similar to the mighty
Murderous Vision contribute the fourth track on this compilation. This
is a lot more sedate than the previous track. This is quality, vocal orientated
dark ambient with a very familiar sound to it.
Track 5 from Travis Morgan is another powerful industrial contribution.
The track opens with a nice Scanner esque sample, which leads into pounding

Prostheses produce the 6th track on this compilation. Similar to the
previous track this incorporates sampled vocal intro leading to a wall

the car (honest!). This makes for excellent driving music.
The final track on this CD is by No
signal organism. This is another fine example of power electronics.
Very reminiscent of early Namanax (pre Plotkin).
