WTF did you put in this drink?

Through the Void Sugarstick

Didn't think I feel the walls of brain ripping apart in layers when I came here tonight.
It's kind of like "Tomorrow Never Knows"..."turn off your mind relax and float downstream", but it got a lot more turbulent than bargained for.
Again, the Sugarstick Duo, she being trancelike hypnotic, he with the usual headphone techno crossfire to a clubbish beat, but this time a more than usual typically aggressive assault on our brains.
I do think this thing takes it as far in realizing its objectives mix-wise, with the vocal layering and arrangement of notes. The piece could perhaps "level up" (in the gaming sense) with some work on the drum kit/percussion sounds themselves. For instance, the snare that hammers could use more sharpness, may even dialing up progressively sharper snare eq's in a particular passage - some other creative sound from the kitchen, layering over it - to drive home the hammering on the inner walls of our brains aspect.
A song such as this certainly might make one consider copping some acid, as this is the perfect song to have the 'phones whilst watching one's melting face in the mirror and contemplating one's mortality, looping into a very harrowing O.D. experience. Dig it.
