Followup to 2010's "death in the halls of the dying", featuring more odd sountracks to a film that I'll never make. Distorted feedback, mean echo, and vintage rackmount ugly drive the angle home. Recorded as live as possible, one track at a time, no overdubs or product fixes - if the track worked, it stayed, if it didn't, the whole thing hit the trash. Headphones recommended.

No synthesizers, just guitar, bass, and a pile of vintage effects covering the transition from analog to digital. Ah, the inappropriate things those units let you do - switching distortion type across individual circuits with an expression pedal to unpredictible results, trying to track multi-tap pitch shifting that couldn't track a whole note at 10 bpm and making them self-oscilate, and more. Now iwth more stereo harmonizer.
