Abjection Ritual - Psychiatric Failures

'The follow-up to the well received self titled Abjection Ritual debut was inspired by mental illness, past and present abuses within institutions, the letters of Antonin Artaud, and the early anti-psychiatry movement. As I alluded to in my review of the first CD, Abjection Ritual is perhaps the definitive new force in American death industrial / power electronics, and the 7 tracks here only solidify that; grim constructions that alternate between being hyper violent and explosive to more bleak arrangements of nauseating electronics and radioactive waste, with a vocal delivery that just ramps things up to impossible levels of intensity. Tightly focused, perfectly executed, and about as good as anything you're bound to hear all year..
