Bare with me as I try to express how I feel about the compilation....
1#Tsabeat & Optical Human
We start off with Tsabeat&Optical Human - Madbeat, and get a "little" sense of whats coming up during the
next hour!A pretty decent track with a madbeat for sure, but it didnt quite didnt catch my attention
compared to the other tracks featured on this compilation! Maybe I need to listen more ?
2#Quasar-Brief Psychotic Disorder
Quasar is picking it up from here, and taking it up a notch causing brief psychotic disorders in 150
beats per minute!Every time I hear a new track from Quasar
I get blown away by the hyper drumrolls and twisted melodies often heard in his music.
Funny and psychedelic as allways, exelent track!
Are you ready for Alien Mental ? Well after probably a hundred listens ,if not even more,
I have come to the conclusion that this has to be my favorite track on the compilation!
The flow of funny sounds and hard leads fits very nice together imo,and the powerful bassline doesnt make it
About the recycling of samples, I dont mind at all, I find it quite refreshing to hear one of the
coolest samples ever used being recycled like this in such a mental track!
4#Amanda-Meltdown Sequence Initiation
Ever since Amanda's first track on Lhiannon Sidhe ive been nothing but curious of what else she had up here sleeve,
and no surprise here, this is by far even crazier than expected! Extremely deep and mirky bassline rolling away
in 150bpm, sounds to shake and stir you up emotionally, a rather hypnotic and traumatic track!Personally I
really really really like it, but can understand that this could be a bit too much for some people!
Meltdown Sequence Initiation Complete!
5#Horror Place-Children Of The Night
Horror Place is another project by Zik/Matutero and the keyword here is "Spooky"... The tweaked out evil sounds
in Children of the night suits the trackname perfect ,loads of creepy
samples manipulated in a way to give anyone the shivers,and offcourse a very powerful 150bpm bassline to
back it all up with drummrolls going up, down sideways and whatnot! A very tasteful and original track!
The upcoming album makes me wonder what the hell we are in for, but anyways , im prepared !
Xyla's debut release was like a breath of fresh air to me, and im glad there is more female producers
writing disturbing music like this! We are now cruising in 147bpm with rumbling bassline somewhat similar
to the metallaxis style heard lately! Metallic and traumatic noize flows thru the entire track with
a lighter melody on top which makes it a little easyer to swallow!Im really looking forward to hear
more from Xyla and the Xylamanda project!
7#Ghreg On Earth-Unrealized Reality
Next up is Ghreg on Earth, and if you havent gotten enough from his recent album Sigilweaver here's more
goodies to digest! I find Ghregs music highly professional and well composed,not like everything else
on any other menu.Like most of his previous tracks released we get here also
Industrial ,psychedelic and techy sounds with dark melodies .very trippy and hypnotic,
maybe a little slow compared to the rest of the tracks here, but still very very good!
Mandrugorrah is a sideproject of the hungarians Para Halu, and this is a nice way to finnish the
traumatic experience we have just been thru, non the less this track is probably more crazy than all the other
ones put toghether and that should say most of it! Bloody overdrive , pounding beat and disturbing sounds
pushes the limits to what we can call psytrance or traumatrance in that matter!
But all in all a sweet Lullabye track for late nights,it will be interesting to hear
more from the Mandrogorrah project in the future!
So okay , In my oppinion this is possibly the coolest compilation released in 2005!
I see some people find this a bit too hardcore ? Well, for me Im glad something like this
finally happend, and that the M.o.E gals had the balls to put it out there for all of us to
Its not everyday we get music like this released, but I feel this is a new day so im quite
exited to see whats coming the following months and year!
I had some time to properly digest this compilation, and it has rarely left my cd player since I got it!
It has been an intense listening experience from beginning till now, and the more I listen the more I love it!
Fun ,disturbing and psychedelic traumatrance from the sunny westcoast!
Keep it up M.o.E , this brings true meaning to high quality underground !
