4 stars Call a priest and pray whatever demon just entered your body can be exorcised!

I remember waking out of my sleep at night as a child. I was deep under the sheets and I made a slight peep hole out of the covers so just my one eye could see into the bedroom, pointed at the door where a ghastly nightlight hesitantly illuminated into my room ever-so-slightly. I stared deep at that light, quiet and alone waiting for the prospect of sleep. I shut my eyes, briefly hoping I could get carried off into some Neil Gaiman wonderland. After a few moments I knew sleep would not come so I opened my eyes. Staring back at me was an eyeball! It blinked once. That's all it took. I pulled the peep-hole down and slid my head under the pillow. I started shaking and sweating. This was my first experience I remember with deep, deep fear.

The second was watching The Exorcist in the basement of my parents house alone. They went off to enjoy a New Year's Eve Party. I had to stop the movie three times and call my friend to distract me from the utter fear I was feeling every time the priest got ready to enter that room.

Later, I grew to love the horror genre. A diet of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Texas Chainsaw, The Thing, The Hills Have Eyes, Fright Night, Night Of The Demons, Return Of The Living Dead and many classic horror movies of the 80's were consumed.

Current 93's Nature Unveiled is probably the scariest thing I've heard in music. Goblin's Suspiria is a distant second. Nature Unveiled probes undisciplined sonic exploration. Weird percussive sounds, strangely engineered pyschobabble, and haunting chaos is in abundance. It's a soundtrack for whatever masterpiece Dario Argento felt wasn't ready to be released into the world. Check it out at your own peril.
