This LP is the hardest hitting, pulsating, deep and heavy album of the year.

Everything these scenes have been trying to portray with a guttural and dark sound, have influences of Kevin Martins early work if they have ever heard it. His catalogue spreads so far across the Dub scene, UK Grime scene and industrial revivals of North America and Europe. A true legend in music, so with this LP dropping, it was with precision timing that it has come back with a sink hole of sound.

Stylistically promiscuous and consistently inventiv, but no.


Underwhelming, uninventive, and at times borderline cringe. This is not it, son.


realmente interesse o conceito aqui e diria que eles executam ele mto bem, o cara cantando me lembra o Little Jacob do GTA IV aliás. é um álbum certamente bem pesado, bastante provocante e excitante pra falar a verdade.


Overrated. Dark for sure but monotonic, nothing groundbreaking.


Dark, grimy and industrial, this LP took me by surprise and kept me enthralled from start to finish. Despite some cringe technophobia and anti-vax lines, the record is pretty dope. The final track left me mystified and terrified.
