“SCHIZOID was responsible for our favorite tracks on the massive (and massively good) ‘Don’t Fuck With Us’ 3 cd compilation of North American digital hardcore compiled by the ‘expert’ on such things, Mr. Alec Empire. We described SCHIZOID as “Burzum goes DHR” and that’s still pretty right on. But now we have a whole disc, so there’s much more variation and much more mayhem! Super distorted, heavily effected, totally evil vocals over dense electronic soundscapes, with chopped up metal guitars, pounding hardcore/gabber/drill’n’bass rhythms. Way more intense and aggressive than almost anything on DHR, and certainly more fucked up and pummelling than almost any electronic music we’ve heard lately, without falling into the boring, repetitive sameness of most gabber/digital hardcore. Super varied, with full on speed metal gabber, lots of spaced out ambient breaks, electronic drones, and some seriously damaged mid tempo primitive-black-metal-electronica. This is definitely some of the best (and most brutal) electronica to come our way since we first heard ‘The Destroyer’. For fans of DHR, The Berserker, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer, Venetian Snares, Atomsmasher, Burzum, Darkthrone and all that evil stuff.”
