In the sound part we come across no surprise, since the band continues to destroy your ears and the environment the same way they did till now; only notion is that the vocals could use a pinch up in the final mix. But this is not of importance when Athenar pukes his poetry, which, if it was written in ancient Egyptian, it would have drawings of bears coming out of toilets.
At the end of the day, what this EP does besides playing all day is making you drool about Midnight’s next album and without even noticing, urges you to log into other kind of web sites, where overs and unders have a completely different meaning. Stop acting stupid, you know what I mean.
