4 stars Subterranean in it's darkness without the smallest chink of light. Good late night listening, where no matter how loud you play it, you're unlikely to wake the neighbours. There are no conventional instruments used at all - so you'll hear no drums, bass or guitar. This is one of those moody ambient albums that there were quite a lot of in the early 90's . Thankfully this is one of the superior ones and probably Lustmord's best in his whole catalogue.

He had links with SPK and Throbbing Gristle, so that'll give you some idea as to where he's coming from. 'Heresy', however is far more subdued than the aforementioned.

Oscillators, rumbling electronics and faint semblances of 'tune' are pretty much the order of the day, but it's pretty cohesive and far less repetitive than the follow up 'The Monstrous Soul'.

I guess most will find this either too creepy or too boring to be entertaining. Personally I've a real soft spot for this kind of doomy soundscape malarky. Prog fans beware - there ain't no prog here!

There are however, some pretentious liner notes in the booklet, like most Lustmord albums, which makes me shake my head and think 'You Muppet!'.

Don't look to 'Heresy' if you're after action and adventure with blazing guns and car chases. This is a very slow, rolling and ominous album which sounds like the after effects of the front cover painting. Either that, or the discovery that there's alien life on Europa beneath the ice.

Very annoyingly, my original has disc rot on the last 14 minute track (Soleilmoon 1990 release - don't buy it!)

Play loud and crank the bass up to maximum to make your heart skip a beat...
