Having anxiously been awaiting this release ever since Bryan Barton sent me several tracks on a promo cassette, I wasn't disappointed. Bryan manages to bring a guitar into his music with a depth and a sound that only people like Trent Renzor can dream of. Sure, the NIN parallels are all over this album, including a track that I'd swear was Trent on vocals, but overall, this album blows it's closest comparison out of the water with sheer depth, power, and stark originality. I particularly enjoyed the hidden track and the end of the CD which reminded me of my favorite Ministry track of all time, "Fucked", with it's sheer grating, annoying, electronic grinding. I highly recommended this album to all the Nine Inch Pansy fans out there who seem to think that Trent actually has talent.
