Please note: revelation was released by this site's owner, Squid's label, bugs crawling out of people.

Spooky, evil and ominous. I could say that about this release, but I wonít. Though, perhaps Revelation is the absolute truth. If you need to be told that the world is in fact a faÁade, and that evil does exist and demons are controlling everything, everywhere, you should read this story and listen to the accompanying sounds. Are all the sounds successful? No, Iím sorry but I canít lie. However, overall they are worthy of the story that has inspired them, often helping me in my appreciation of uncovering the transcendent truth, helping me on my way to absolution. Right now, while I write this and listen to Revelation there is a baby screaming and screaming in the next room. I begin to wonder if it hasnít been devoured by evil forces. Is it in fact in the death throws of an evil power? Are the beings preparing to come through the wall right now? Lonely and isolated, I cannot grasp the immense power leveled against me. "Itís just a story, just a cd", I tell myself, but that doesnít seem to be enough. I can't help but feel the raw energy of forces lined up against me, waiting to devour me whole when I turn the next corner. But thenÖ but then I suddenly remember that I am writing a review and that I must return to the loathesome task of making my mind function properly, and not wandering off on tangents of fancy. The music leans on the ambient side; a horrific tyranny of icy blasts of noise and scrapeing soundscapes that often evokes the finest terrors associated with ghost stories and echoes the sentiments of the centerpiece story: The thrill of a supernatural attack on our morbid and petty world. The transcendence of evil lurks behind us all, yet we must fight to achieve it. For what is the evil, and is it evil, or just different? Good all around. Spooky and disconcerting. Evil rituals preparing us all for the end of time. The angels of death are arriving, we must prepare ourselves; prepare ourselves to die. Or maybe just to be destroyed, it really doesnít matter.
