4 stars This version of 'Symphony for a Genocide' is the re-mastered one. Its sharper and more harsh in sound than the 'Dark Vinyl' CD I own from the early 90's which sounds far murkier and darker - almost as though your listening to it at the bottom of a mine-shaft. The clean up job has almost been too good, sterilising the overall dirtiness of the recording.

This is probably my favourite 'Industrial Noise / Drone' cd of all time. A genre I pretty much dislike these days. Is it all part of growing older? I used to love Controlled Bleeding, Dissecting Table, Merzbow etc, but find it all a bit hard to take these days.

'Symphony for a Genocide' is purely electronic, intensely claustrophobic and has a faint semblance of a couple of tunes attached to it. Everything sounds grumbly and whiney and is overflowing with delay and reverb which leads to a very creepy and atmospherically evil recording. Brilliant! Just the kind of stuff I like!

There's nothing remotely 'Prog' about this album nor any other MB album, but it's without doubt his best and is the one Electronic, Noise, Drone recording I've always got time for.

Petrify your neighbours by playing this in the middle of the night. They'll think Fred and Rose West have moved in.

The kind of music that makes you think that there's faces staring at you through windows...
