GAJOOB Review

Reviewed by:

Described as "Acid Dance" by one reviewer, this is a good description of Dark Star's cold, eerie death attack. A sequenced pulse glides along while hyper-distored guitars slash and noise punctuates its insistent melody. "Terra Incognita " reminds me of Theatre of Ice or Lycia (this tape would fit well within the gothic dungeons of the Orphanage tape label). "Perspective" has some cool analog sweeps. And, actually, the synths on this tape are distinctly analog. The pace throughout is quite brooding. Recommended.
