I’ve been meaning to give this a proper review for a while now. Dälek are in my opinion, the most unique group in the experimental hip hop scene. They have these energetic instrumentals, that never become overbearing. The attention is directed at MC Dälek. The instrumentation does great work amplifying his voice, instead of muffling it.

If you are one of these people, I ask you to remove your ears as they appear to be defective. We cannot guarantee a replacement, but the pre-existing conditions you carry are far too dangerous to allow to spread to the rest of your body and it is better to remove the ears altogether. We give our condolences to those who must go through this procedure. It is a necessary precaution.

This album came out 20 years ago today. Wow. The fact that this album sounds newer and fresher than most industrial hip hop today is insane. I don't even know what more to say it's just a crazy fact.
