NEW UK print magazine hits the stands in April. Featuring cover stories on ANAAL NATHRAKH, DELTA 9, ULTRAVIOLENCE, in Issue #1 you’ll see an advertisement for SCHIZOID’s “The Next Extreme” CD. Also, on the covermount bonus CD will be SCHIZOID’s “Canadian Extremity” remix of his CD’s title track.

“The Next Extreme” is an entertaining drive in the familiar style of mixing digital hardcore become a little more focus on black metal, which is true in this niche genre hardly new ground, but neat at maximum volume radiates aggression. Trailer for industrial metals & Digital Hardcore worth a test run.”
D-Trash‘s own Schizoid back with his third full length release, the aptly titled album “The Next Extreme”. As an original and founding part of the D-Trash collective, 15 year veterans of the underground hard music world – electronic and otherwise, you’re pretty much guaranteed top shelf extremity on anything he does. “The Next Extreme” does not disappoint and, as the title suggests, proves to be another chapter for Schizoid.
“Almost an hour of music, through some industrial trends, such as Ministry, NIN (90), Thorns, only Schizoid puts all his talent and making the album a true product of his mind, without having to thank then no one in particular. Those sounds so clear and mid frequencies between metal and electronic create a unique sound …” http://www.metalhead.it/?p=11596
“…A sonic, technological barrage of undulating, throbbing and distorted chaos! ‘The Next Extreme’ is right, from order comes chaos and the band who laid down what they hoped to achieve in an orderly fashion have then proceeded to open the floodgates and reek havoc with their almost anarchic sound!” http://destructive-music.com/?p=3946
