Nature here is vile and base [...] the birds are in misery, I don't think they - they sing, they just screech in pain. So starts the fifth song of this demo, reflecting quite accurately the overall mood Smorzando tries to generate. Misery is the keyword here: the music is raw and oppressive, but has all kinds of warped, seemingly disembodied melodies and half-melodies, just barely noticable, floating among the claustrophobic haze. Disturbed shrieks and harsh rasping vocals betray a hatred of life and all it has to offer. It seems superfluous to say that the result is a hypnotic, yet very alienating soundscape that is deeply negative in nature and potentially harmful to your mental stability. "Favourites" - or better said, the most effective tracks - are the first and the last. This is roughly the audial equivalent of locking yourself up in the crawlspace and then chewing off your hands and feet. Please do enjoy.
