All things pass. The only question is, how big will the mark be they leave on someone or history.

Some incidents are so odd or utterly disturbing that they change man forever, at once and obvious. Some however are also odd and disturbing but leave a more subtle mark. At first it is like “That was strange” but from then on, everyone will remember it as that one of a kind incident, that had no great consequences, but remains forever engraved in culture.

The first time hearing The Body was the latter one for me. I just heard distortion, a person screaming and screeching in agony and it left me puzzled why anyone would listen to this voluntarily.

Listening to The Body is like standing in front of a very obscure pairing without a clue what to make of it. The only thing you can tell for sure is, it moves something in you, you can’t look away. This kind of music takes you to a place that isn’t nice but very fascinating and its atmosphere is heavy and drenched in darkness

I’ve Seen All I Need to See needs to be digested in full. Sequence and flow as a major plus on this album. After listening to this album you won’t have any aspirations to do anything, you’ll just sit, stare and realize nothing has changed except the fact that you got moved.
