As has been said in other reviews here, the first CD of this double album alone is enough to give you value for money. Mostly heavy but catchy tracks, its easy to get into and there's always more to hear whenever you play it. Stand-out tracks are "The Ride" and "Killing Machine", and I recommend that the latter be played at top volume to get the full effect!
Alec Empire is a very angry man, and this album is concerned with much the same subject matter as his work in Atari Teenage Riot; armageddon, demise of culture, hatred of pop culture. However, it has been developed to a far higher standard and contains some incredible riffs and beats.
The second CD is not one which I originally liked, and although I have since warmed to it, its not one which I listen to frequently. Written to be played looped continually, it skitters from idea to idea in a fascinating yet disorientating way.
In short, this is a fantastic album but requires patience to get the full benefit. More people should know about this - a magnificent and important record.

Intense feelings of suicide and depression swamped the production of this album. The result is Alec Empire's self-confessed "diary". With it, the longly anticipated fusion of the two worlds of Empire's talent; the hypnotic dance and the politically bled world that existed, most predominately, in the shattered landscape of "The Destroyer".
The sharp connotations of the phrase "Welcome to a lifestyle that you can't buy into" in "Path of Destruction" see a return to form of Empire, a snarling, intense and dark figure that has remixed Primal Scream and Bjork amonst others, and has been equally influenced on and by the legendary Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. The provocatively named "Everything Starts with a F**k" sets the record along the lines of extremism, with the euphoric "Ride" being the dark trance that could be expected in clubs, and the first single "Addicted to You", that is just amazing. The most striking song is the painful "... And Never Be Found", a blistering track that sees Empire whispering over the harrowing noise of a subway background. The most surreal is the second part of "New World Order", the last minutes are an unending fury of the sound of the Digital Hardcore mixing desk in flames! the sound of metal skin being torn inside your stereo and into your ears. It leaves you feeling that nothing, nothing could be so intense, so vital, so passionate.
And then you get the CD2 of the package, what Empire has himself described as "a trip through hell". A garden of channels of noise are defaced here to something that shows the extreme of extreme, the evidence of a talented genius in extreme pain.

This record is better than almost anything i have ever heard !Alec has returned with a record which is so strong musically and vocaly. It has so much to offer its a very guitar driven industrial record with awsome samples.Even my girlfriend finds herself grooving to the powerfull beats which are dispalyed here.
Track one gets you re-aquainted with Alec as he gently throws you back into his rollercoaster musical onslaught.After this its a none stop exciting metal-beat fest.The passion with which Alec delivers every note is simply overwhelming. You can expect lots of future beats and beutiful compositions. Records like this are very hard to find.
Thier is so little music as good as this it is in no way a pretentious movement. All the emotion is relative and genuine.Nic Endo is present on this one as it pays a strong tribute to the late Carl Crack MC' with atari teenage riot.
This is definatly a record you will find yourself listening to in even 8 years time i have had it for nearly 1 and its in my all time top ten.
Buy this listen to it !
You won't be disappointed.

Format: Audio CD
I have been listening to extreme music for near on a decade and very little out there compares to this in terms of heaviness and extremity. The first disc is virtually perfect with every song being superb but the ones that really stand out are 'intelligence and sacrifice', 'death favours the enemy' and 'buried alive', with 'death favours...' being simply one of the loudest songs ever. The second disc is minimalist, ambient dance with no vocals and is really nothing like the first. The first disc is what the package is really about and this disc alone is much more than worth the price. Absolutely 100% guarranteed to blow you apart, welcome to the sound of western civilisation's collapse. The end isnt nigh it's already begun, here, on disc one.

Fed up with the mainstream rock groups (Linkin Park, Blink 182, Sum 41, Nickelback etc)?... With white noise and drums, turntables and other electronica this is one of the best albums ever. The lyrics are a little bizaare at times, but you can mostly hear screams and shouts which add to the hellish nature of the album. CD 1 consists of razor sharp songs of a chaotic nature whilst CD 2 is a joy-ride through Hell. Enjoy.
