“Super Death Explosion Kittens” is skittish aural violence delivered with teenage abandon and it’s a compelling listen. Uneasy listening made with a shit eating grin and a mischievous mind - surely a combination not to be ignored. Ross Pike, Room Thirteen
Most of the songs here at ‘first glance’ seem almost to have little apparent rhyme or reason other than to bruise the eardrums, but listening even the tiniest bit deeper shows exactly how meticulously and painstakingly crafted this release truly is. Every nuance has been carefully planned and executed with perfection. This disc doesn’t disappoint, not even for a second. Barton Graham, Chain DLK
This is an album that actually deserves to have a new genre to categorize it. Or perhaps, there shouldn’t be a label assigned to it. Maybe the music just is what it is. If you’re into this type of music, or just enjoy insanely chaotic and fun songs, then this album will probably appeal to you. Heck, even if you’re not into this, I highly recommend at least checking it out. Ian Felpel, The Death Of CDs
I would have been very surprised if this crazy project wasn’t noticed and appreciated. This experimental DATA-METAL music genre (? I don’t know how to call it, it sounds like a raw binary communication protocol going through a speaker, that somehow sounds musical, and aggressive enough to remind me the work of ihshan, the singer of the emperor band, and some productions of the elend band), it’s unconventionnal, your listeners will need time to grasp your feelings. I guess that people tried to find your reference genre in the visual aspect of your site, they believed it was… ambient, music for relaxation, something like that, and they could not make the relationship between the industrial noises, robotic, mechanical and dark atmospheric buggy circuit, and the beauty of nature they can see on your site. But this is where all the power of the concept is revealed. It leads me to the conclusion that our (mechanical) language, that defines humanity in the creation, is NOT natural. Is it an anomaly ? Is it an error ? Is it a mistake ? Something that has no place in the evolution of the cosmic reality ? Or is it a new achievement in the potential and growing complexity of universe… ? This contrast is in itself the source of neverending philosophical introspective considerations.
