Please do yourself a favor and stay away as far as possible from this experimental noise recording making the most irritating, annoying, disturbing mess of screaming, gargling and tripped out construction of antimusic, unless you are definitely looking to hear some dude who has plenty of time on his hands and access to recording equipment to do big sessions of random shouting, cutting and pasting and looping and pressing bottoms with no comprehensible order whatsoever. You may think that I am exaggerating, but this dude himself will tell you that these are not songs because to him songs are lame, commercial and traditional. The objective is to make chaotic screaming sessions and then record them and see, out of curiosity, who actually pays money to hear this. Someone will pay money, right? There is a sucker born every minute.
The individuals who consider themselves somehow intellectually superior to the human race will say all sorts of politically correct comments about how this is important experimental stuff or that this is unforgettable or unique or something along those lines, some nonsense like that, but it's difficult to say whether they will actually listen to this on a regular basis. It's nice to be nice and to seem like you are better than the person down the street who listens to normal music, like pop, hip hop, country, rock or metal and who listens to hear songs that they can enjoy. It must feel great to find a reason to consider yourself better than other people.
On the other hand, if you are not a pretentious jerk and you don't mind telling the truth, and you do want songs, then you should not waste your time with this. This will be one of the worst things that you will hear all year. This is terrible stuff. It's ok to say it. This dude that made this experimental noise understands that lots of people won't like it.
Holy cow. This is awful, awful, awful stuff.
